 Published   in   Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 9, Number 31.  Aug. 4, 1955  Provincial Librar  Victoria, 8. C.  Serving ihe Growing;  Sunshine Coast  From   Squamish  io Pender Harbour  now circu  : A committee of the Seehelt  Board of Trade is now circulating the petition    advocating  Village Incorporation for   the  area.  , With   the    canvas    nearing  completion the   committee    is  practically assured of at least  a^ 75 percent majority in favor.  >   The canvassers report many  people not in possession of the  facts regarding the matter, but  when   the      advantages      are  -pointed out      they,   generally  speaking, are in favor. N  The  canvassers   report   mis-  XI  information circulated because $  they    are    continually    faced  with questions  of the    water '  system.    Many  are under the'  misapprehension that the  waiter will be cut.  off,    or   that!-  rates will be    increased,    and ���  even" that a high-priced engine:  eer will have-10 be employed'  to operate the    system,    once;  village has    had    the    water-{  works dumped in its lap.       , ^  The committee has checked '  this carefully and there is no  truth in any:, of these statements. The village cannot be  forced tto buy the system. The  water cannot, be cut off, nor  the rates raised without the'  approval of the PUC, the committee reports.  Another: ^question ,. in ,ttbe  minds7���of> spine, is whether wthe  popU]^tibh17'is ,too small and  the district not far enough developed. The committee is of  the opinion that the sooner incorporation comes the better  it will be for all .concerned.  Delay in incorporating will  only add to the problems of  planning, an orderly community, and will hinder the- progress of the area, the committee believes.  The void "bugaboo" of increased taxes meets the committee in some quarters. No one  wants to pay more taxes, and  if the "people'of the area do not  demand too much in the way  of; improvements, taxes do not  need to be raised, the committee says.  Improvements cost money  and must be paid out of tax  revenue. It is up to the people  of Seehelt to declare whether  they are willing to pay more  There is a deep, silence    in  the Kiwanis ,camp!  Another battle is raging  over the prospects of a second  tussle with Chops' Mops,  i The element within the Kiwanis preferring a much safer  field of endeavor is sticking to  , its guns for a tea and strawberry social. Efforts to discover the ring leader of this faction have not produced any results* because when Kiwanians  are approached on the subject  they just stare into the future  and change the subject.  On the other hand Chops'  Mops are raring to" go and are  keeping their powder, both  facial- and baseball type, dry.  They are ready to take on the  Kiwanis aggregation whenever  it is ready, Chops McGean re-  ports.-  J "The team is all ready whenever the Kiwanis set the date.'  Who they will be playing fdr  this time we do not lenow.  Maybe it is to raise a fund for  the cripples left over from the  last game,"  Chops says.

It has been suggested' that  some of the busmessrrieri will  derive all the benefits of arid  when, sidewalks, for instance  are required, Itis the business  men and business properties  that will bear the brunt of the  taxation for this sort of.thing, \  the committee finds, but everyone wh0 uses them benefits from the convenience of  such improvements.  The canvassers report they  are pleased with the reception  they are receiving and feel  confident that a large ma jollity of the residents are wholeheartedly, behind them in this  very important step towards  the development and progress  of-the village of Seehelt.

This fact is  brought home to The Coast-News every other day or so by  people who complain generally about the slow service or  lack of service.  Such compjaints are not aimed specifically at the operators of the postal service on the Peninsula but rather  at the type of service the area is receiving.  In a general way it might be "explained that postal  officials are reasonably well-acquainted with situations in  various areas through postal department employees and it  is on their recommendation that the first move is made towards improvement.  One of the first things to be done will be to find out  how many people receive mail on the Peninsula. When>this  is known and as the result of improved water and road  communication from Arancouver-all the way up to Powell  Eiver it is quite likely there might be a change in the present system of handling mail. - ' " ^  Growing areas are always a headache to postal officials because they are invariably at the stage where they  are too big for one type of service and top smajl for another.  In between times, postal officials have to take abuse that  accumulates . under such circumstances.  It will take a little time for the Peninsula postal problem to be straightened out $o the satisfaction of all but it  should be taken for granted that there will be an improvement. Just when will not be easy to.forecast because postal  officials do not rush in���they wait until.they are sure theue  , is no other way out.  v : In the7 meantime pick up your mail at your usual  time and if there are not too many bills in it, smile at the  postmaster and his staff. They do not make postal regulations.  ���^n^jAst'fotAppjre^tw^  The Hon. Lyle Wicks has  announced the Cabinet has approved new regulations covering apprenticeship and the is-  suance of certificates of proficiency under- the "Apprenticeship and Tradesmen's, Qualification Act." The Act, passed  at the;last sesabri^oftheylegisr  Jiarnre, replaced the "Apprenticeship Act."  The obligations of an ap-  prentice and the employer are  clearly outlined. Among other  responsibilities the: apprentice  as required to render faithful  service; attend work; and trade  training classes r e g u 1 a r 1 y;  avoid damage and waste of the  employer's equipment and  goods; obey lawful and reasonable demands of the employer.  Wilful failure on the part of  ���the apprentice to attend' prescribed trade training classes  may incur the loss of periodic  wage' increases or in extreme  cases, cancellation of the contract.  The employer . must notify  the director of apprenticeship  when employing a minor or  apprentice in a designated  trade. He is also to provide  adequate training for each apprentice; arrange for apprentices t0 attend trade training  classes: and to the best of his  ability provide continuous employment for the apprentice.  Examinations for a certificate of proficiency will not be  compulsory, but will enable  successful workers to display  their certificates as proof of  their capability. The examinations shall include theoretical  and practical tests, of the applicants' knowledge and skill.  These examinations are to, be  given as to best evaluate the  knowledge and skill of the  applicant.  Of great importance to apprentices is that recognition  may be given by. the examining board to the examination  already taken by   the  appren  tice to obtain his apprenticeship certificate^ If the examining board approves, an apprentice who hereafter, receives an  apprenticeship certificate, is  entitled to a certificate of proficiency with respect.;. to that  trade without; further exaniinr  ation7or 'payri^rii'pf fees. \'Cy'x':  Examining boards are to be  composed of three members  appointed by the minister. The  chairman is to be ��a meiriber of  the provincial apprenticeship  committee or the labor department and the other ���two members are to be selected from  eriiployers and employes. It is  the responsibility of the board  to examine the candidates for  certificates of proficiency.  Within a short time . copies  of the regulations will be available to the public without  charge, by writing to the de-,  partment of labor at any of its  offices.

BY  GLADYS McNUTT  1758 was the birth date of  Admiral Lord Nelson and Captain George Vancouver.  Nelson at the age of 12, although sickly and having little endurance, begged to go to  sea. At 15 he was a coxswain,  at 19 a second-lieutenant, at  20 a- commander and next  year a post-captain. Each time,  .visits to the West Indies and  Central America brought on  illness.  In the meantime Vancouver  was serving with .Captain  Cook, one of the' most famous  navigators of all time, who  practically changed the map  of the world. Vancouver accompanied him on his second  and third voyages, which were  to the : Southern Seas.  In 1719. Vancouver was sent  t0 Nootka Sound to receive  formal transfer- of the land  oyer which Great Britain and  . Spain, had been disputing. Between 1792 and 1795 he explored this Pacific Coast from  36 degrees to 56 degrees north  latitude.  In the meantime the'Napoleonic Wars had started, 1793.,  Nelson, who was in charge of  the Boreas, was given a new  command, the Agamemnon,  and sent to join the- Mediterranean fleet. During the.blockade of Corsica he^lost his right  eye.    ������-��� ��� ������������������������ '-o..  As a rear Adrriiral he fought"  at the battle of Cape. 'St. Vincent, 1797, under Sir John  . Jervis (later Lord St. Vincent).  For this Nelson received the  Order of the Bath."  His one defeat was the battle of Santa Cruz which    cost?,  him his right -arm.:-'-   7     0 ^M  At Aboukir   Bay,    off    the5  Nile, he defeated    a   [ Frerich;  fleet  winning the title  Barbri:  of the Nile.    His ship at that  time was the Vanguard;.  In  ISO 1 Nelson  fought   the  Battle of Copenhagen. In -1803-;  he:-,�������. crnmarider-in-chjef  of��  "'the '^eejlthis^  ���. Afte^^^^shmg;; ':'iteX'XFr^clfe^  fleet almost to the West Indies* /  and back he caught up  with  them off Trafalgar   in     1805:  Here    Nelson     received   : his  death, wound,    his    26., ships  having' defeated    a   combined7  Spanish and French fleet. He  died at the moment of victory  in the arms of Captain Thomas Hardy. His flag signal    to  the fleet before the battle was ���  "England expects every.   man *  to do his duty."      ,......  Captain Vancouver, who  had been in ill health for ���'.  quite some time, had died back  in 1798, aged 40. Asa result of  this1 we find no place names  celebrating any of Nelsons victories after that date.  It would appear that Vancouver did not name places  when he first saw them but  waited until he completed his  maps. This must have been so,  because the Battle of St. Vincent did riot occur until two  years after he left this coast.  It is  interesting   to wonder  why he chose the most important names of   his   time    for/  Jervis  Inlet   Could  it be the-  impressive    scenery -remained  long   in his  memory? '  Thus we have: ��� Nelson Island, Jervis Inlet, St. Vincent's Bay and Nile Point.  For ships: Agamemnon Bay  and Channel,    Vanguard Bay,  Goliath Bay,    Captain    Island.a  and    Fearney     Point     (Fearnought).  Of officers, etc.: Hardy Island, Dacres - Point, Mount  Troubridge (behind Saltery  Bay), Hotham Sound and Ed-  mont Point.. ,  For the Royal family: Princess Royal Reach, Prince- of  Wales Reach, Queen's Reach,  and Priiacess Louisa Inlet.  A step back in history was  taken t0 name-two outstanding'  landmarks at Vancouver Bay,  Marlborough Heights and  Churchill for John Churchill,;  Duke of Marlborough, who  won the famous battle of Blen-i  heim against the French arid;  Germans.  (BOCAS DEL CARNELO) 7  BY  L.S.J. -  But propt on beds of amaranth  and moly,  How sweet, while warm   airs  lull us, blowing lowly.  ,*������'��  Tennyson had never    heard  of. the Bocas Del C.armelo  when he penned the "Song of  the Lotus Eaters,." . Many and  devious��� were the, ways' of  making a living hereabouts 'in?  the long ago; It was made  much easier if One had a gas  boat that would be abdut 28  feet and a 5 hp engine of one  cylinder. Possession of such a  boat made you a beachcomber  and once "in that category you  had reached the lowest or pe!r��  haps the first rung iri the social ladder.  Visiting . round and meeting  the folks on the islands with  this rig I picked up the. odd  job of slaughtering cattle or  pigs here arid there and that's  how I carhe to the group of  islands known: to the Indians  as Smus Pus Tan Quin Ace.   -  yx The largest island had what  most of the; B ,C. coast islands  ���had not, a hve or six acre  cleared flat spot in the middle  of it and this was the haunt  after dark of the deer that inhabited the place and the two  legged predators who in an un-  ��������� lawful manner made life mis-  i erable for them.  The    cannery    mogul    who  ' owried  the  place  brought"^his  1 family  there iri the    summer  and they also had plenty visitors which made it   necessary  to  import a couple cows and  sorrie chickens. The island was  well posted with signs "Keep  Out" but as a    rule   we    had  some old log pickup    permits  from    tugboat    captains    that  made us immune if we stayed  7 on the beaches. The island has  ;, no  counterpart   this  side    of  Desolation Sound arid it is    a  perfect entity,    moated    deep  and wide.  *��� ���   * ���. ��� *.'.-���     ���  There is a gem of a bay on  : the south end that had : been  cleared of underbrush by the  Laird and I can't thinks of any  place more; suitable! for these-  few lines from Milton's; Lycict-  ^aS'^ ;'--- ' .' .':';.;':'  1 Aridnow the sun had stretched  put'all the hills,  And now! was' dropt into    the  Western Bay;  At last he rose, and twitched  his mantle blew;  To morrow to fresh woods and  pastures new;  We would lay in there and  1 watch the sun go down quite  often although the westerly  swell, if any, bothered us some.  There were nearly always a  few spring salmon around the  island, especially the north  end and about three in the  afternoon on a winter's day  we would down poles and  prowl round till dark. I well  remember a  January  evening ,  Hospital  earnings  Patients paid directly 37.5  percent of the net earnings of  Canada's public hospitals in  1953.7 They paid another 18.4  percent through: Blue', Cross,  3.4 percent through Workmen's Compensation Board,  and 8 percent through other  group .plans and contracts.  Goyernfnent - supported hospL  tal care plans paid 23.7 percent of the national total, almost the entire sum .going'-to.  hospitals in Saskatchewan and  British Columbia which have  provincial plans in operation.  Direct government grants for  individuals made up the other  8.6 percent.  wheri I picked up seven fish  in about as many minutes and  they weighed 137 pounds and  that was the first time I got  aver 20 cents a pound for fish.  The other time I was there  to help a town chap kill the  two fat cows that the Laird  had tired of feeding arid while  I am not sure of dates this  time if was October and we  had a bad sleet storm, that  broke trees down ajl over the  place;      ;��� .-  '���-'���-    '*.  ��� ' * '"''-������.' *  There was a Chinese caretaker there and we knew him  slightly from doing a 'few  chores for the Laird.

There was  also "Jimmy" to contend with  too, a rotund limb of the law  just returned from the wars  and was both game warderi  and policeman combined. Acting on "information received"  he could be found creeping  along the shore in a canoe in-  the dead of night When he  thought there might be a  chance .of picking up a pit-  lamper.  *      *      * i  In retrospect h\ is a conundrum as to why we didn't realize then what a blissful existence we led. I am afraid if  we had, and could have existed till the welfare state made  its debut (and the, odd one  managed that) we must surely  have been in the promised  land. There was rarely a day  passed that I did not get a trip  to Horseshoe Bay when the  old gas trains were running  from North Van. There used to  be a�� boat in the early morning  on Mondays and there was always somebody who coulda'A  make it.

Terry Nickerson, West Seehelt, left on Thursday, July  28, to visit his sister in Dawson, B.C., whom he has not  seen for nine years. He is undecided whether he-' will look  for work in that area and; perhaps lengthen his .stay.

"We conducted this essay  cohtest because we realized  how much attendance at the  Jamboree could mean to a  Canadian Boy Scout," said a -  bank spokesman. "The essays  themselves certainly warranted the project."  ���Their enthusiasm for the  Scout movement and their  pride that Canada is host this  year to.the world-wide Jamboree are evidenced by these  Boy Scout essayists. As one  prize-winning essay writer put  , it: "This year in Canada we  shall see Scouting in action.  Though orators and journalists  may strive to put the essence  of Scouting in words, only at  such a Jamboree will we finally realize what it means to be  a Scout."

Telephone engineers will  begin path testing in August  between sites of 12 mountain  radio relay stations, in .the rugged B.C. portion of what will  be the longest single microwave system in the world.  Designed to provide television channels and long distance  telephone circuits over a 3,800  mile route from Vancouver to  Sydney, N.S., the network will  be operated by the . meiriber  cpmpanies of the Trans-Canada Telephone System.       ;  Aerial   surveys  of ������ the   proposed sites were \ made earlier  this year,  and  more recehtly  engineers have been    carrying  out 'preliihinary''tests on;   the  grounid, i^ing special 7 mirrors  to establish lihe:pf-sight paths  between the,   projected    relay  stations.  ... Actual' radio    path  testing will entail  the use of  pbrtable;r 2d6-f06t   towerst 7, and  assptiated    radio     equipment.  Cohstractipn of the B.C.,7r see-  '. tiofi of the system. ;wili  \ post  liiore1 fe^*$p'ffi��xp(i(li: and    is  expected to take: three years to  complete.  proposed relay sijtes include  Burnaby Mpmitainf Sumas  Mountain, Hope7(Ruby>��reek),  Blackweli,. i^ountam,.. Mapjning  Park; HecUey, Anarcpist Mountain., Phoenix, Mount Santa  Rosa in,the Trail, area. Lost  Creek/ near Salmd; Thompson  Mountain, near Creston, Moyie  Mauntain and Morrissey Ridge  near Ferhie. -a  Known as TD-2,, the projected microwave system will provide additional lo'iag distance  telephone circuits to supplement existing landlihe facilities, as well as television  channels. Television caiinot be  carried1 on standard lorn* distance lines, but requires ^the  use of microwave equipment  or coaxial cable.,  The additional telephone  circuits will be a further step  toward continent - wide direct  dialing of long distance calls.  The microwave systei^ii-v^ill be  equipped to transmit television  in either black and white or  color.  Cities already served or to  be connected include Vancouver, Edmonton^ Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Fort  William, Port Arthur, Tim-  miris, Sudbury, North Bay,  Toronto, Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec  City, Saint John, N.B., and  Halifax and Sydney, N.S. Further extensions can be made  t0 connect other points along  the route when required.  The Toronto - Ottawa - Montreal - Quebec links are . already in operation, and the  Toronto- Winnipeg connection  will be the next section to go  into service. This is expected  to be completed by the fall of-  next year, while the 800-mile  Winnipeg - Regina - Calgary  section is scheduled to go into  service early in 1957. The 710-  mile Quebec - Saint John -  Sydney links are slated for  completion in mid-1957.  Recognized by engineers as  the toughest stretch in the  3800-mile route due to the  mountainous terrain, the B.C.  portion of the system is expected to take about three  years to complete.  Many of the relay stations"  in B.C. will be located at the  4500-foot level or higher and  several of these will be situated at altitudes of approximately 7000 feet. In many  cases access roads will have to  be built through rugged /terrain in which snow conditions  are described as  "heavy."  The TD-2 microwave system  operates on a line-of-sight basis  on frequencies between 3700  and 4200 megacycles. It permits the "stacking" of 120'  telephone circuits above television signal, or, if television  is not used, makes it possible  to operate between 480 and  600 message circuits, depending on technical variables.  The stations are spaced an  average of 28 miles over the  entire route and sites are chosen s0 that there is no obstruction between stations. Accessibility for maintenance is also  an important factor in the selection of the sites. The toAyers  carrying the antennas vary in  weight up to 115 tons, depending on height required, which  in turn depends on elevation  of the site.

Sports  week  BY  CHUCK TOMPKINS  The big bat of Rudy Crucil  of Wilson Creek and the curve  ball of the Merchants Gordy  Johnson combined to break  the hearts of the top running  Firemen last week.  Friday night at Wilson  Creek was truly Crucil night  as the Creek's terrific shortstop practically single handed,  beat the Firemen by hitting  two tremendous home runs  and making many fine plays  In the infield as the Firemen  bowed 7-3 to the rampaging  ranchers.  ; Teammate Dick Gray walloped one home run and was  robbed of his second by the  fine catch of left fielder Jim  Hall of the Firemen.  Bob Norris  hit for the cir-  1   cuit for the Fireboys.  Monday night the unpredictable Merchants, aided by the  fine chucking of Johnson, a  home run by Pete Slinn and  probably the greatest catch of  the year by fielder Jack Cress-  well, downed the play-off  bound Firemen 5-3.  Seehelt backed veteran  chucker Sammy MacKenzie  last Wednesday and edged out  Merchants 8-6.  Wilson Greek romped to an  easy 8-1 win.over Seehelt Friday night.  The play-off set-up so far is  . that .thei winner of the Squariv  ish, Woqdfibre, Brittanda, Mt.  Shear league, will play a sudden death game with the Squa-  mist Jets, a team that is affiliated with the BCASA but  that does not play in an organized league.    -\  .  The winner of -that game  will play the winner from our  league with the victor going  to the finals in North Vancouver  on August  27.  There is a'' possibility that  should our representative get  to the finals we may have a  game on the Peninsula (providing fans  support it).  The "Popular Player" contest is rolling along and the  ballot in this weeks paper will  be the final one, so if you  wouJd like to see your favorite player decked out in the  sport jacket presented by Marine Men's Wear Vote! Vote!  Vote!!  The standing so far shows  veteran pitcher Norm MacKay  in the lead followed closely by  Bill Nichols, Rudy Crucil and  Danny Bergnach. Deadline is  Monday midnight, Aug. 15.  A quote from a small portion from the constitution of  Little League reads: "so that  boys, regardless of race, creed  or color, may play ball."  Last week in one of the  southern states no less than 55  teams withdrew from the playoffs for the Little League  World Series. Why? because a  colored team; had proved, by  its ball playing, that it was  eligible to participate in these  play-offs.  Instead of the directors of  Little League stickmg-to ���their  guns they went back on their  consitution . and? ruled'��' the colored boys ineligible to play by  some remote law.  Is this sportsmanship? Is  this democracy? Is this Little  League?  One of the funnier things of  the season happened at the  Merchants-Firemen game Monday night, when Merchant  storekeeper Ivan Warren, sat  on the Merchants bench, loudly rooting for the Firemen.

They are rriost interested in having professional instruction here on the peninsula for the youngsters.  The plan is still in its infancy, and it may be a little late  to make 'any headway this  summer. If all the details are  settled in the near future,  there should be no barrier  next year at the start of the  swimming season.  Mr. Watson said that a minimum of four teachers would  be required to properly supervise the large group expected  to participate in the classes.  It m hoped that Mrs. Lee  Redman, possessor of a great  many medals for her prowess  in aquatic sports, will be on  hand for this venture.
