Frontage rates collected totalled 86.2 percent $2,537.33 compared1 to 86.7 percent $2,500.34  for 1954, a slightly lower percentage but an increase in  actual cash collection owing  to revisedV assessments. Water  revehue also showed an increase totalling 7$9,772 compared ^ath $8,156 in 1954*.  fcash oh haiid or in the.current oariking account totalled  $11,859.22 compared with $9,  0037 27 for 1954.  7Mr Burns pcdnted out that  it was interesting; to note that  ..j^^irtVinVeash onVhatyd; and in  ���.

Disease free  area sought  A disease free cattle area  under federal government regulations is sought by Howe  Sound Farmer's Institute for  this area.  A petition will be circulated  among-cattle buyers to get  views on the matter in. order  that these views. can be presented to the federal official  responsible.  Squamish and Pemberton  areas are novy disease' free  areas for cattle and members  of th6 institute were of the  opinion the Seohelt area should  also come-under the regulation.  The area would run from  Port Mellon to Pender Harbour and adjacent islands and  all farmers with cattle within  this area are asked to make  known their views.  Petitions will be sent around  to. organizations and may be  placed'in post offices and other'  poblic places in order the widest possible circulation will  be given the move. Farmers  are reminded that their name  and desires on the matter is  not sufficient. They must also  put down the number of cattle  they have.

Farmers Institute at  the annual meeting Monday  night in the School hall.. Roy  Malyea was elected vice-president" and Mrs. M. LeFeuvre  was chosen secretary-treasurer.  Norman Sargent is honorary-  president, an office which he  holds  for life.  Directors elected include Mr.'  and Mrs. R. Fitchett, Mr. J.  Hawkin, Mr. R.S. Clarkson  and Mr. LeFeuvre. The auditor  will be Robert Burns village  tlerk. Mrs. Coates and Mr.  MacDannald will supervise the  Junior Garden  Club.  The Institute secretary reporting on the results of last  year's fair in August showed  the profit on the fair amounted to $137.79 which meant the  bank balance now stands at  $568.01 compared to 431.22  for the previous year. Receipts  on the fair totaled $1,302.99  and expenses $1,166.20.  The Farmer's Institute balance sheet showed a credit  balance of 365.67 an increase  over the previous year's balance cf 357.18  Invitations had been sent  out by the executive asking  that a representative attend  the meeting from the board of.  Trade, the Legion and the Kiwanis club. Mr. Ed. Johnson  of the Kiwanis'club attended  and will" present a report back  to his club on aspects of the  Institutes operations that interest the club.  It was announced protests  had been made to the provincial government on government    inspections     of     dairy  farms and also a protest against  compulsory pasteurization of  milk, which was regarded as  being too costly, in7this  area.  Concerning government inspections it appeared that the  general complaint was that  some dairies "could get away  with murder" according to  viewpoints while others could  not.  The' future of. the Junior  Calf club" received quite a going over, because of the fact it  was difficult to obtain someone to take over supervision  Of the club. A committee was  formed to approach , likely  candid'ates to see what could  be done about obtaining a  supervisor. Last year's supervisor Mr. Christianon, has  moved to Port Mellon and  would not  be available.  The directors felt that outside clubs could stimulate interest in the Calf club and  that was why invitations had  been sent to the Kiwanis club,  the Board of Trade and the  Legion in Gibsons.  The standing fair Committee  was re-elected with authority  to add to its numbers as needs  arose. It was also thought ad- .  visable to work towards having representatives of outsid  ing representatives of outside  organizations on the fair committee and letters will be sent  out covering this point.  It was recommended that  the fair committee be selected  in October each year and not  leave it-until ^January or7 later  when enthusiasm appears to  have  cooled   off considerably.  President Coates in his remarks wished all members and  families good - health, happiness and* prosperity throughout  1956. In viewing the business  of the institute for 1955 he  did so with a certain amount of  satisfaction bearing in mind  the times in which we live  agriculturally.  He spoke in laudatory terms,  of.the work of the Poultry  club, the Junior Calf club  and the Junior Garden Club.  They had had a successful year  and he offered them all a sincere  thank you.  He said he thought the members would1 _gree ��� with him  that the fine success of the  1955 fair which was considered the best show they had p��t  on so far could not have been  achieved without the good eo>-  operation of the Fair Committee, the merchants and th��  public.  There was no denying, he .���  said, that farmers continue to  work in difficult times but he  believed' that if "we continue  our best efforts forward fOr  the welfare of the Institute  the day would come when we  would be glad of the efforts  made."  In closing he    thanked    all  Convenors of the'Port Mellon New;,X^r_.7Vparty7; have  cpmg. ,ini^sif^Xpra^ hy a  ^rit��*-^^etti^^  Hews. Mere is the letter:  Editor: May I through your  paper offer ihy thanks and  compliments to the social convenors who so ably took care  of the New Year's Eve dance  at Port Mellon.  I have been to more New  Year's Eve parties than I care  to ad.hit, but have never before  been to one I enjoyed more or  one that was so smoothly run.  From the time I entered1 the  hall and picked out my fancy  hat until the time we left I  never heard a rough word.  Everypne was sq friendly that  I forgot I was an outsider.  The boys really played that  music in such a way even they  seemed to enjoy it. Whoever  looked after the. supper arrangements should,be congratulated.

MORANE  IS CRUSHED  Bill Morane suffered severe  head and facial injuries, when  working Sunday about noon  on an oil truck in Hill's Machine Shop Gibsons.  The truck was on blocks  with Bill working underneath.  The blocks slipped, sending  the truck down on Bill's head.  . Bob Ritchey was in the shop  at.the time and George Hill  was working in his office.  Tpey rushed to extricate him.  Dr. Hugh Inglis was called  and took Mr. Morane in Hunter's water taxi to Horseshoe  Bay. where they were met by  ambulance which took thereto the Vancouver General Hospital.          Mr. Morane suffered severe  facial injuries and lacerations.  Reports indicate Bill is making some progress, and that  some plastic surgery to his face  has been performed.  are asked to do so by the Village Commission.

'        5c per copy  Editor: The following letter  has been sent to Mr. Tony  Gargrave, M.L.A. for this district  - A.A.   Lloyd.  Once again the columns of The Coast News are open to,  both sides of the Sechelt incorporation argument*  Either side has a rig-lit to present its views and can do so  without fear of The Coast News acting as censor providing  personalities are omitted.  The Coast News, editorially, will take its stand but the  _ew_ columns will strive to be impartial.  How about a revision?  Financial limitations under a section of the Municipal  act passed during the late 1940's which set tlie; taxable income of a village at $12,500 in. order to escape having to  pay certain social service costs covering indigents, would  appear to be, out of line with reality  Gibsons Village Commission and other village commissions or councils are working under a repressive measure  which might have been reasonable in the late 1940's but  today is a measure which limits income but does not take  into consideration rising costs connected with municipal  works.  Simple checking of conditions in the late 1940's and today will offer a lucid explanation as to what is. meant by  saying the measure is repressive.  Take living costs in 1947 as a sample also; wage; rates.  In 1947 the cost of living index based on the index as set  up in 1949 was 77. Today that same index .s 116.9 or was at  Bee. 1. The average wage scale was in 1947 according to  the Bureau of Statistics, 80.3 cents an hour. At the end of  September it was 144 cents an hour. These wage costs are  for the Canadian maufacturing industry specifically but  they serve the purpose of showig the general rise in costs  of labour. Today it is difficult in Gibsons to hire a laborer  at less than $1.50 an hour.  If one cares to compute the added cost to . municipal  government between the years 1947 ad 1955 it would .appear  that the cost of everything purchased has risen-at least 60  percent.  Would it not appear reasonable that .the limit-under which  municipalities can escape certain ��� social service costs Should  be raised, merely to keep the ratio, (there must have been  one arrived at in order that the $12,500 was- agreed upon),  at its proper level.  Municipalities are ask'ed to do something hospitals; business and even government operations are. i^riabje-' to do,  owing to increased costs. To say the limitation is repressive  should not need too much explaining,:.If hospitals, business  and government operations were limited "to: 1947 budgets ���  or suffer added costs because of something be5'or_d their  control, there would be a howl so loud the government would  have to do something about it. :-y> ���:���������  Maybe the villages of British Columbia .will.take heart  and present the facts to the government and ask' that the  limitation be raised to say'$20,000 under the same social  service payment policy. ' ���  The government could reasonably reply 7there is no need  today for the same social service pressure on villages. That  is part of the argument only. ���  Village municipalities in an expanding. ecomomy should.  have more leeway under present day conditions. They are  faced with problems just as serious today as they were in  1947, maybe more serious, but as they are hamstrung by a  piece of legislation which keeps them watching that $12,500  level when their minds should be geared in other directions.  British Columbia is growing so fast that it even keeps the  government hopping to keep up with things. The provincial government can collect more taxes from more people1  but the villages must not collect more than' $12,500 from  more people who will be making more demands' for services.  * Premier Bennett need not worry about fiascos in Ottawa.  He should look around his own bailliwick, There could be  same close to home in fact right on the governmental  doorstep.  MIXMASTER  Mr. Gargrave.  Your constituents in and  around Pender Harbour, have  tried fcr many years to persuade the B.C. Power" Commission to extend their lines  to serve the Harbour. They  were put off with excuses  .about roads access, etc., but  the people of the Harbour and  their organizations were able  to satisfy the commission objections on all matters,- even  to the extent cf taking a survey of potential users themselves. Finally there remained  no loophole by which the commission cculd escape giving a  definite decision on the matter.        '  At  the    annual    Board    of  ��� Trade  banquet,    in     October,  1954   attended  byi .  over    200  residents   of   the  Pender Harbour area,  an official of    the  B.C.

A pensioner, veteran, supplementing income by  doing part time accounting  work, who hesitates to go into debt to get her house wired  as she feels that money may be  wasted for some time before  s_ie gets the power to use the  wiring.  Case F. The residents of the  Francis peninsula, comprising  a fair portion of the harbour's  population, who new find that  It is not certain, if they will  be supplied with power, even  though a road has been built  with this purpose in mind.  You could multiply these  cases to cover   .stores,    doing  without sufficient lighting, and  refrigeration,   loggers     and  garage owners patching up old  lighting plants, hoping they'll  last out, or making do with  lamps and candles in 1955, 50  miles from Vancouver.  The Power Commission will  not give a definite date as  to when power will be in any  given locality, and do not seem  to feel that residents in that  locality have any right to know.  It would almost seem as if  they did not wish to serve tlie  area. They quoted that the  costs would 'be too high, but  from their own year book, we  -were able to show them that  the costs would be about the  average for other areas they  were now serving. They stated that the average usage was  low, in the lower part of the  Peninsula, but forget that this  area has a higher per capita  income and a more stable population  than  the lower  end.   .  Now they will doubtless say  that they cannot go any faster  than the crew imprc/ving the  highway. That is as maybe,  but is there any reason why  the road cannot be done any  faster, they .have been mauling  it around for approximately  four months steadily now, and  only half the distance has  been covered with winter  coming on they could put ; a  lot mere men and : equipment V;.  to work oh the job (that  would otherwise be idle)  and speed up the whole jab,  without spending more money  on the .whole. Furthermore  they could/be obtaining, and  laying .out their distribution  lines in the Harbour itself, so N  that there would be a minimum  of "delay whie.il-. the transmission lines finally got here.

Men are idle that could  be working, at" no extra cost,  t0 "slash out lanes for transmission lines in the Harbour.  Wire and transformers are  stockpiled at the taxpayers  expense, when they could be  in use as intended. People itt  the area are deprived of the  most commonplace boon of  modern living, while a despotic government bureau pursues it devious and dilatory  ways, apparently responsibly  neither to the government  that keeps it in operation, nor  to the people it was set up to  serve.

During" bad weather it  would be some help ; if the  phone office booth was available for use on Saturday because the present public phone  booth offers no facility at all  in the event one is trying; to  get through to a distant up-  coast point. It means th^.individual trying to phone has to  wait around ih bad weather  in, front of a booth that offers  n0 shelf facilities on which one  can write and offers no shelter.  VI Would not ask .that the.  phone company build an ��� edi-  face.fpr this purpose but I  would ask for a decent ,place  in which, one could wait for  lines to clear and that place  could be the phone office itself. It is available on. other  days of the week* except Sun-  I.Q.O.F.

Captain Raby said dense fog  prevailed, and since there ar��  no adequate fog signals either  at Gibsons or Horseshoe Bay,  and since the Bainbridge has  no radar, he did not think it  prudent to sail.  As a result of the cancellation of the sailing, a busload  of passengers, seven cars and  three trucks were stranded  overnight at Gibsons ��� Norman Hacking. Vancouver  Province Marine  editor.  A labcr arbitration board  has upheld Black Ball Ferries  suspension -of  Capt.     Herbert  Board members emphasized  Raby for one month for cancelling a Howe Sound sailing  due to fog Nov. 9.  clearly that Captain Raby acted rightly in hot chancing the  Howe Sound crossing during  a "pea soup" fog.  They said he should have  'merely postponed sailing    and  should have kept a watch on  the ship until 2.30 a.m.- " so  that if the fog lifted the ferry  could have made the trip from  Gibsons to Horseshoe Bay and  return with waiting passengers  in cufficient time so as not to  interfere with the early schedule the following day.  As it was Captain Raby arid  ���his crew went to bed. while a  busload of passengers, a half  dozen cars and ��� three trucks'  spent the foggy night in.Gibsons waiting for the next sailing, the board found.  Capt.

Johnston, Sechelt. were glad  to return home to the Peninsula  after a two we'ek holiday amid  the glamour and glitter of  famous nightspots, where they  mingled with many well-  known movie stars.  In Los Angles they visited  the Coconut Grove, Ciro's  The Brown Derby ; and The  Flamingo among others. Then  on' to Las Vegas and through  the Mojave Desert.  ��� They arrived at Universal  Studios in time to see Robert  Stack on stage filming his  latest mcvie.  Donald O'Conner was at .the  Sand's Hotel in Las Vegas  where the Johnston's brought  in the New Year, and chatted  amiably with them for quite  some time. He is a very nice  person, and seems the same  off-stage as on the screen.  The floor-shows are absolutely-marvellous, said Mrs.  Johnston. They did a let of  night- clubbing with a medical  convention, and saw The Beach  Combers with their tiny singer, Natalie.  A fashion note for the ladies  from Mrs. Johnston: Hair is  worn decidedly short by the  screen's beauties. Small earrings seemed to be predominant, contrary to belief of most  women  on  this   coast.  Mrs. Jhonsion also confided  a secret. Her husband was  heard to remark that The  Choraliers en this Peninsula  would probably "bounce" some  of the singers they heard on  their tour, and they are paid  fabulous sums fcr their weak  efforts!  Madeira Park  store so!d  He came to sell and remained to buy.  Mr. F.A. McDonnell, real  estate agent from Vancouver,  about six weeks ago came to  Madeira Park, to sell the store  owned' by Mr. and Mrs. Dave  Wendland. He was so impressed by the place and its prospects, and liked the area so  well, he bought the business  for himself and is now operating it.  Mr. McDonnell is a married  man, and has his wife and two  sdns, David and Bob. and  daughter Sandra with him.  Mr. and Mrs. Wendh-nd have  rncv-J io Vancouver to live.  T.ivy rr.'-do the r.v;ve ck Saturday last.  members for the support they,  had offered during the last  year.  The directors annual report  read by Mrs. LeFeuvre, showed1  there were 49 members, 12 in  agricultural and 27 in industry. There were 10 monthly  meetings, three directors, meetings and nine Fair Committee  meetings.  Last year's fair could be  classed most interesting and  the best of all past fairs. There  were 842 entries, slightly more  than last year. There was a  slight drop in vegetables and  fruit sections due to the poor  growing season. The preserving division was down partly  on account of the scarecity of  fruit and1 the present freezing  methods used instead of cari-  ning.  Co-operation was good particularly from outside districts  including Port Mellon.  Receipts totalled $1,302.99  with expenses, totalling $1,166.  20 leaving an operating gain of  $136.79.  Junior Garden club: There  were 15 members with 135 entries in the Fair, Interest was  good and much credit is due  Mrs. Len coates, supervisor  for the capable way in which  she   had  conducted  this  club.  Junior Calf club: The direc-  tors appreciated the work of  the four young contestants at  the fair and hoped the example of these four will stimulate  efforts of other boys and girls.  They also hope a supervisor  will offer his services for 1956.  4-H Poultry club: At present  there are nine members and  while sponsored by the Institute this active club under  supervision of Ed. Smith steers  its course in accordance with  4-h rules. The members exhibited in the local fair and at .  tlie P.N.E. with satisfactory  results.  Land Clearing: Most earnest  : efforts were made toi revive the  dwindling farm aims in the  district without results. The  two represehtaives from the  agricultural departriient a t  Victoria held out no- hope for'  any financial assistance as the  cost would be too high. Industry still offers better prospects  than farming. ���  Films on Poultry: Early in .  the year Messrs. Buckerfield  Ltd. gave' a talk and showed  pictures on poultry. These  were interesting and there was  a good attendance.  Feed grains: Objections to  the lifting cf the federal subsidy on feed of S5 a ton in B.C.  went t0 the winds.  Lime: Efforts tc< purchase  agricultural lime at a low  price were futile. A minimum  order of 200 tons was the chief  reason.  Stumping Powder: Directors  are pleased to report that the  1953 motion disallowing sale of  Stumping powder unless for  agricultural purposes was rescinded and the Institute now  sells specifically for agriculture and industry at differing  rates.  Telephone installation. Since  Jan. 25, 1955 four letters have  been sent to Eric Mallett of  the B-C. Telephone company  and replies received contained  regrets at the delay but the  company is doing its best to  ���comply with the wishes of the  Institute.  Ditches and culverts: The  annual complaint of the Institute to Mr. Gaglardi for replacement of dilapidated culver is and deeper ditches on  secondary; roads and in partic-  cular Reid Road received attention and some repairs have  been  made.  Shoal Bay: Support similar  to last year was given thc local loggers.  The directors regret to report the prolonged sickness of  Mr. Tom Clark and believe an  occasional visit or letters from  members would cbecr him up.  In conclusion the directors'  report said i4gt odwill continues in dealings with the departments at Victoria and'  vv.:'h nil other persons with  whom we have com? in con-  Iv.ci. yttTiic.ilarly ip regard to  ���!v:  f:;ir." 6      Coast News Jan.  12   1956  Truck Loggers from all., B.

Their husbands are chairmen  of the Truck Loggers' and .Machinery and Supply Companies  Group,  respectively.   -.;  POT HOLES  SMOOTHED  Recently graders started  smoothing some of the badly  holed highway surface between  Sechelt and Kleindale. The  roads have been in bad shape  since the first fall rains, and  pot-holes are deep and numerous.  One grader was at work on  the Garden Bay road and  some loads of sandy gravel  had been dumped in one or  two bad spots. One grader was  at work in the Halfmoon Bay  area, and another scraping the  road surface in the West Sechelt  area.  In several places deep channels had been worn across the  road by water overflowing  ���ditches, where culverts were  either blocked or missing and  the result was broken springs  when vehicles dropped into unsuspected channels.  Bus drivers, freight truckers  and motorists are loud in their  complaints about the bad road.  Gargrave writes  about blacktop  Tony Gargrave. M.L.A., has  written to the Minister of  highways Philip Gaglardi concerning ccmpletion of the  'black top on the Vancouver-  Gibsons-Powell River highway in 1956. In a letter to the  Minister, Mr. Gargrave retraced the previous work that  had been done by the government and conveyed the appreciation of. his constituents fcr  this work. A remaining stretch  4 -  of highway from Sechelt to  Kliendale, now under construction, remains to be black-  topped.  Mr. Gaglardi has replied  that the request the government make plans to blacktop  between Sechelt and Kliendale will certainly be given  consideration.

The judges agreed that the  essays ;were. in the main, quite  good, and it was their regret  that more than cne could not  win the bond. Miracles the  writers wanted to see made a  very long list, and they differed greatly. Some wanted.  ohe thing and some another,  according to their tastes and  upbringing.     .  The fortunate winner was a  17 year-old student named  Elliott Sprechmian, who had  suffered nearly all his life  from infantile paralysis.

J. 5COTI  BY   CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The Vancouver Sun "Athlete of the Year" award is def-  initiy on of the biggest things  for B.C. sports but I some-"  times wonder about the way  they chcose the person for the  award. *  Last year they, gave the  award, which is supposed to  be for the most outstanding  athlete in B.C., to Terry Tobacco a young man who* may  someday be a runner. All that  Terry Tobacco accomplished  was to be an "also ran" in the  British Empire Games track  features, if this is o<ur most  outstanding athlete then we  are in a good1 position to not  have any in the next few years.  This year will see the usual  group of idiotic nominations  for the athlete of the year arid  unless I miss myi guess here  are a few of them with my  opinions. The first one is un-  doubtly Al Pollard of the  Lions, well Pollard is a fine  athelete: but what did he do  for B.C. The next will be Phil  Maloney and Pat Egan of the  Canucks, and what ,did they  do for B.C. besides make  money for Coley Hall and  thrill a few Vancouver people.  Outsidex^of Vancouver there is  a lot oi,;BCV_n4,I.7;am; sure '  there are people who have  never heard of the Vancouver  Canucks.  Then there is a Mr. A.Stu- .  kus who certainly ma de  enough good copy that he  should get the sportswriters  vote. The will be many more  cf the Lions and the Canucks  and somebody that swam from  Canada to New Zealand and  back and a local boy that ran  a mile in six minutes, these  are  our  outstanding  athletes?  To me there is only one for  '55, a little man with a fighting heart and the knowledge  cf a fine game. A man who  put B.C. on the-tip of everybody's tongue all oyer the  world and also brought the  . Wprld!s VHcckey Championship  back to Canada where it belonged'. That man is.
