 Provincial Library,  Victoria..---, ft.  7  Published   in   Gibsons.  B.C.  Volume  10,  Number  3  -   January   19.   1956.  Sechelt taxpayers will vote Saturday on an incorporation  measure for a Village of Sechelt.  rrhere may be some taxpayers in Sechelt who are wondering just what they should do - vote for or against it?  To help waverers to niake up their minds some salient  >oints.will be outlined here so they might be judged.        ,  Which is best ��� to give "a landlord", (the provincial  government) all your taxes and get little in return or to  keep those taxes within your own power (through your elected Village Commission officials) ?  Which is best���-to have your "landlord" (the provincial  government) raise your taxes without even asking you and  allowing NO appeal ��� or ta have, your oun elected body (a  Village Commission) over which you have some control ?  Which is best ��� to have faith in the future of the area  in which you live and faith in the people amongst   whom"  you live ---; or to regard those people with suspicion   and  your area as one in which you have no faith?      . >.'  y  Which is best -- to be AFRAID that taxes will be raised  by your elected representatives or to consider that*within  a short space of "time, maybe one year, you will be collecting additional taxes from sources now in process of establishing themselves in Sechelt? - �����  < TWhich is Jest ��� to be able to improve your own village  yourself with -your own money in your own way ��� or to  leave the whole matter to absent government officials not  too vitally concerned about the Sechelt area any mor^ than  any other area?  Which is best -r- to think, five years from now what you  could have done with* $50,000 or more given the provincial  government because, the measure of incorporation was  voted.down :-- or to think of what the am/unt of money has  done for Sechelt Village because the measure was passed?  Whichis best ��� to1 believe rumors the village would have  to purchase a water system ��� or to remember that any  capital.expenditureof such proportion must be subject to  a ratepayer vote which could turn it down.  One of the arguments against incorporation appears to  be that Sechelt is too small for incorporation. Gibsons was  incorporated in1929. It was 60 acres in area and   had   a  population of less than 100. Look at Gibsons today with no  thought of returning to the unorganized territory status.  The government pays for one-quarter of its street lights.  by returning to Gibsons Village Commission three percent  !of total revenue collected by the Power Commission.  The opposition to incorporation for Sechelt maintains:  Under incorporation tax collections would be insufficient  for major improvements now paid for through, provincial  -general revenues. v   v ;  Cost of administration by forming an incorporated village would be a^harge;. on 'local- property owners therefore 7  an increaseVin taxes; would occur.  ; Fire Brigade service would, be denied people outside the  village area.  Street lighting would become a tax charge. Selma Park  has street lighting- without a direct charge on the taxpayer. Sechelt can do the same.  Road building and maintainance is costly requiring purchase or hiring of road machinery when would be another  charge on the taxpayer.  Home builders could suffer through excessive zoning and  building restrictions.  If The Coast News may express an opinion as to why  voters should vote yes here it is: You have nothing to lose  and everything to gain. ;  There is one piece of advice left for The Coast News to  offer and that is VOTE no matter what your views may  be ��� VOTE.     ,  tQc4a�� B. c  Serv_g~-Ke~~C_TowzI-g,--  Sunshine Coast  From   Squamish.  to Pender Harbour  A T THE  chairman  Mr..

Mr. Funnell who has been  chairman for the past few  years, was elected vice chairman. He is the senior member  of the Board, having served  as trustee since the formation  of the Sechelt School District;  and before that was trustee  with the Elphinstone Bay  school board.

V He suggested Gibsons should  'erect a sign for visitors to see  when they first enter Gibsons  and the sign should read Gibsons is a Safe Community. He  argued that somewhere along  the line this idea would sink  in and eventually, Gibsons  .would become a safe place in  which to live.

A prize would be  awarded' a{ the March meeting of the Lower Mainland  Board of. Trade. The Gibsons  board intends to see what action can be- taken.  Ed Sherman cf Canadian  Forest products then introduced Don Macklam, also of Canadian Forest Products, who in  turn introduced Mr. Rustemeyer, safety director of Canadian   Forest  -products.  Mr. Rustemeyer explained  that all accidents are unfor-  seen and he cited the case of  the president Mrs.. Stewart,  who unfortunately swallowed  something she did not expect.  He then outlined what was  done for the prevention of cancer, polio, TIB. and heart  disease. Funds were being  raised for the removal of such  blights but nothing of a similar kind was done to stop accidents. He argued that having  fire departments, pc-lice. and  doctors to help nullify the',  effects of fires and accidents  was going at things the wrong  way. He was of the opinion  better "engineering" of situations would improve conditions.  Fire departments helped to  keep the fires under control  but'did net prevent them. The  police enforced the law but  did not stop an accident before it happened. Doctors and  hospitals patched up accident  viotfms but did not stop accidents. That was why Mr.  Rustemeyer suggested better  "engineering" of situations in  order to remove the reason  for accidents happening.  He suggested the Board of  Trade should' get behind an  accident prevention movement  in Gibsons district and promote  the use of films lectures and  shows for school children Saturday mornings which would  instil in their minds the need  for preventing accidents. He  urged a poster competition be  started in the schools.  "You can make Gibsons a  better place in which to live  but the question is will you?

Main" theme  for discussion will be Credit  along with  othcr  topics.  BY TONY GARGRAVE  The Legislature opened  Tuesday with usual pomp and  ceromony. I tried to open this  weekly column in a new way  but that is really what happened so I cannot embellish it  too much.  The opening of a new legislature is really quite an affair.  The military is there. .The  new spring hats are there. I  think if the legislature was to  open in December the ladies  would still wear new spring  hats. And of course the MLA's  are there.  This year we have a new  Lieutenant-G ovenor, Mr.  Frank Ross. Mr. Ross, of course  only.read the speech that the  premier had written for him  but nevertheless everybody  craned their necks to have a  look at him when he entered  the legislature for the first  time.  The real business of the  legislature was discussed in  hotel and motel rooms that  first night. No doubt many a  huddle took place at the State  Ball as anxious MLA's quized  their neighbours, Tuesday be^-  tween  waltzes.  Ycu will have read the  speech from the throne in your  papers. It never really tells  you much. The government  (Mr. Bennett and his friends)  said what a good job they had  done all year and told the  members what a good job the  government intended to d0 in  the new year. Throne speeches  are all the same..     '  What will really happen in  the next six weeks?  Well  tlie  government    will .;  have to account for itself. We  will  want, to know how they   ;  y:spent Tthat two hundred.,million we voted last year. And no  ddubt    the    government    will'  want    two    -hundred    million  dollars  again  this    wear,    or  maybe   mere   if  the   tax  revenues have poured in like we  think they have. Its  easy    to  spend money   if    you've    got  lots of money. As a matter of  fact is must be a lot    of    fun"  spending tax     money    contributed by someone else like you  and me. :��� ''"}  Actually nobody minds a'  government spending a lot of  money providing it is spent  wisely  and   well.  The real buzz around the  corridors is speculation on an  early; election and the charges  of corruption made against  Mr. Sommers, minister of  lands and forests, by Mr.  Sturdy a Vancouver Lawyer.  Or maybe I should put. it  the other way around. Will  Mr. Bennett call an early  election because this Vancouver lawyer charged impropriety in the issue of forest management licences before the  Commission cf Enquiry into  ..Giestry   matters.  The attitude of the official  opposition has already been  put forward by Arnold Webster, MLA, when he said in  Vancouver last weekend that  there was no possible justifica-  cation for an early election  this year. A government usually stays in office for four  years. That means that the  next election should be in  1957.  However in a parliamentary  form of government the premier, and the premier alone,  has- the right to advise the  lieutenant governor to dissolve the* legislature and call  an election. While the premier  has the right to call an election he must also bear responsibility for calling such an  election, it is quite a responsibility.  This^ is the fifth session  that I have been writing these  column from Victoria. You  may not always a^ree  that you -will value the  my point of view but I  sonal chSi-rranc 'of  member providing y\oy  put  forward  hone-'Iy  'with  per-  hope  -.our  3 re t  -  ��� -     1  <&\iz Coast Mews  Published   by   Sechelt   Peninsula   News   Lid.  every Thursday, at Gibsons, B.C.

If the man-hours were computed during, which  _.en��bers of the Commission have explored possibilities  a_a_ probabilities it would open the eyes of Gibsonites.  3fe is true there is a petition now being circulated asking  Soar action from the Commission but even without this peti-  f_55si -the Commission realizes only too well something must  be 5_o__e and with all possible speed.  Judging from remarks passed during arguments on what  __s__ be done one can gather the Commission means to do  __e job in a most sound and yet most economical manner.  There is no thought of rushing into added taxation. It is  Hjossible that before the matter is really working there  &m\& be some form of added fees for garbage collection  a__ disposal. If this is done it can be taken for granted the  /f_e commission has no alternative.  If any one has a sound project to place before the Commission they-should not be afraid of having their views  aired. Our democratic form of government grants taxpayers this right.  The age of speed  A recent article on "speed reading" mentions with approval that "a sales trainee taking a course in speed readme jumped from 300 words a minute to over 700 a minute  without losing a fraction of a percentage point in his 80 per  eent comprehension."  Whether that sentance is read quickly or slowly,* there  seems to be somthing wrong. Presumably a sales trainee  Sis a person being trained to sell something to somebody else,  said the fact that he understands only 80 percent of what  h& reads is unimportant so long as he makes the sale. Yet,  salesmen and customers being what they are, there is a  chance that the salesman's first prospect will ask him  something covered by his 20 per cent of incomprehension,  and that, rather than confess ignorance, he may make  claims for his product that his company cannot back up.  Thus lawsuits arise.' ���.<'������  Speed in reading, as in other activities, is something that  mereases with practice, but it is not necessarily a virtue in  itself. A doctor can get the gist of a medical article on  _G_vediing in his own field in less time than a layman  would take to puzzle out the meaning of the unfamiliar  "words, and a lawyer can quickly take in the general meaning of a contract; but the doctor will not treat a patient  nor _ie lawyer advise a clienty.on the,basis of one hasty  reading. When important matters are at stake, care, not  speed, is required, and care means time.  ? T_e few lovers of literature that are left in a world of  tele vision may also have some objections to register about  Hie fad of speedy reading'. Take, for example, those lines of  Meredith: '  "jLovely are the curves of the white owl sweeping  W&vy in the dusk lit by one large star."  __ is possible to read the lines so quickly that the owl  seeans to move with the speed of a jet plane, but in that case  the fastidious might justly complain that something has  fc_een lost, and nothing gained. ��� The Printed Word.

In other  words, "one man's meat is  another mans poison"; and  while a gentleman kicking  up bis heels in Austria a few  years ago may have invented -  to his way of thinking ��� a  "balm for every wound", I  often wonder whether those  who expound his teachings and  presume to solve other peoples  problems and shortcomings  thereby, themselves shake the  bottle well and imbicte their  three doses a day.

Such a glacier cut out Howe  sound. Another.,such ..district  is. Burnaby, where a mightier  river than the Fraser ence  flowed. The Fraser at that  time would be no more than a  icreek. I have never seen finer  Whiteheart cherries or Bart-  lett pears anywhere than those  I saw growing in South Burnaby. . ���  We also' '������must consider that  the sea, once upon a time, was  at a higher elevation, leaving  its    'salts'    behind.

Provision for pupils to advance according to ability is  receiving "major attention" of  Department of Education officials, Education Minister Ray  Williston stated in his reply  to a B.C.

They feared "inferior grading" which might be demoralizing to the students, and said  high standard's might be sacrificed to retain the holding  power of schools. ...  Mr. Williston said provision  was being made in the curriculum for individual differences  of pupils "The introduction of  majors into the high school  curriculum is having a fine  effect and the University N (of  B.C.) reports that never have  bright pupils come along as  well prepared as they are today." He promised' "This  movement would continue."  He hoped for expansion of  bursary-loan plans, possibly  with wider federal government participation.

Training of music .teachers  will be incorporated in the  curriculum of the new College  of Education, he said in reply  to  another resolution.

As a mother'  places her strong arms around  her babe, so God encircles  with His arms ~'.he everlast?  ing arms. Mother love is everywhere,, and this simple picture  speaks a universal language.  It is a metaphor frequently  used in Scripture: "As one  whom his mother comforteth,  so; will  I comfort you."  Ther6 is no promise of exemption from suffering. God  does not bribe into His service  by inducements of ease. One  has only to think of our Lord's  life on earth to realize how  true this is. In that home at  Bethany - where Jesus so often found a welcome shelter  and' where dwelt the brother  and two sisters to whom he  was so tenderly attached .- to  that home first came sickness  and1 then a great sorrow that  darkened the lives of the two  women. There is just a hint of  protest it the words of Martha.,  "Lord, if thou hadst been here,  my brother had hot died."  "'*��� ' *     *  The cheif significance cf the  promise made to Asher was  that the protection given was  enduring - the arms were  everlasting arms. A mother  places her arms around her  baby and for a time all is well,  but that is a relationship  which cannot possibly last very  long. Those arms grow weary,  and the time comes when the  situation is reversed and the  child must support and comfort the parent.  .A few years ago the writer  met the nephew of Bishop  Thoburri whose fine contributions to the spread of Christianity in India stand out as  conspicuous in a long list of  noble missionaries.. It is questionable 'whether    the    white  r   i, ������-    l     ������   -   -r. .������-  ��������� '     ���-���������- 'i���i   ���-        -'...���  Agreement  is signed  A new two-year agreement  effective Jan. 1 between the  International Brotherhood of  Electrical workers and the B.C.  Power Commission was signed  the last week in December. ���  The agreement, a_fecting  seme 350 Commission employees in 25 classifications,  covers Units 1 and 2 of Local  230 (Vancouver Island), Local  82.1s- (Vernon), and Local 993  (Kamloops and all other areas  served by the  .itility).  Main changes in the agreement are: y  1. Sick leave of one week  per year becomes cumulative,  i.e., unused sick leave can be  used in subsequent years if  needed or can still go toward  earlier retirement.  2. All employees under the  agreement will now wc-rk a  40-hour week. Previously, certain workers in smaller districts worked1 a 44-hour week.  3. Hourly rates of pay were  set far all tradesmen, including plant operators previously  paid on a monthly basis. All  were adjusted to the base  rate  of journeymen linemen.  4 Employees covered by the  agreement will receive a two  percent increase effective Jan.  1,   1957.  5. A number of minor  changes were made in the  mutual interest cf the parties  to the agreement.  While the formal negotiations were for. a tw0 year  agreement, I.B.E.W.-Commision  relationships are on a continuing, year-around basis. Eaeh  power district, hydro; generating station and major construction project has a co-operation committee which meets  usually monthly. Union and  Commission representatives en  the committees are thus able  to iron out many local problems.  Bleached "kraft" or sulphate  pulp is used in whn# utility  papers, deep freeze packaging,  tissues, fine writing papers,  waxed papers and a thousand  other items.  race has ever sent a man of  more massive intellect and  clearer vision to that land- than  Bishop Thoburn. But when  his nephew was asked about  the bishop's health he said:  "My uncle is alive in body  but his memory and other  mental faculties have failed.  He. cannot even recognize  members of his own family.  The one thing he can do, clearly and intelligently, is pray;  that is a window God has still  left open, but in other ways  he is confused and worn out."  , *     *     *  In the first book of Samuel  there is an illustration of this  same truth. There was war between the Israelites' and their  traditional enemies, the Phil*  istines. Every, available man  had been secured for the battle, for at that-time national  existence often, depended upon  the outcome ��* such struggles.  / But while others went forth to  battle, Eli, once himself a vigorous stalwart of his people,  now old and decrepit, awaited  news of, the battle. "Arid Eli  sat upon a seat by the wayside watching." That was all  he could ^.fr* he was a locker-  on, a watcher. The strong arms  had grown feeble and the stout  heart had become fearful.  ���   ���  * * f  In 1759 General -Wolfe sailed up the St. Lawrence, river  to the seige of Quebec city.  The famous elegy of Gray had  not long been published, and  the general - perhaps apprehensive cf tlie fate which  awaited him -- dwelt on the  brevity of life and the vanity  of worldly pomp. Over and'  over he repeated Gray's lines:  The boast of heraldry, the  pomp of power, .  And all that beauty, all that  wealth  e'er   gave,  Await alike the inevitible  hour,  . The paths of glery lead but  to the-grave..  It is such thoughts as these  whioh have made this Bible  promise of uhspeakable '-comfort to a vast number of people.  Human sources of support have  proved unsatisfactory and inadequate. The need or deeper  and more abiding foundations  has ben realized and perhaps  these lines have been sung by  millions: s  Change and decay in all  around I  see;  O Thou who changest not,  abide with me.

This is a necessary community service which should be on sound financial footing. Contrary to rumors a fire service would still  he rendered to outside areas. An amendment, to. existing  laws will be made by the, government to ensure this although  it has always been the stated intention of the firemen that *  they would continue to do so in.any case.     "  2. Street lighting services cannot now be contracted by  unorganized areas as was once the case. A modern lighting  program for Sechelt is badly needed. The government will  not do this for us.''Only a village commission can provide  ihis service  3. Village revenues consisting of our present taxes plus  government grants can be applied to local improvements  and services which we do not have now. Rumors that taxes  will be increased are without foundation.  , 4. Do not be misled by arguments thaft either the area  or the population is too small. It is   obvious   that,   village  expenses will be proportionate to its size and population and  if we are small so will our expenses be and consequently  our taxes.

SEOHELT TAXPAYERS  The Sechelt Taxpayers' Committee opposes incorporation and, when a  petition for incorporation was circulated, we, too, circulated a counter-  petition with gratifying results. This committee asked the Honourable  Wesley D. Black, Minister of Municipalities, that a plebiscite be held. This  is the only true and fair method for an honest expression of the wishes of  the taxpayers. We deposited, with the Minister, the required sum of  $300.00 and our request was granted. ,Our efforts only have permitted  ihe holding of this plebiscite.  Vote "NO" because  (l)'TAX MONIES from this very small area., suggested for incorporation,  would be insufficient for any major improvements which are now paid  for through Provincial General Revenues, Cost of administration and tax  collecting would be a charge on local property owners with a resultant  increase in taxes!  (2) FIRE BRIGADE service would be denied residents of any point outside the area proposed for incorporation. THIS, notwithstanding the fact  that the people of SELMA PARK and WEST SECHELT have, for years,  contributed to the expansion and maintenance of the SECHELT FIRE  BRIGADE!  .... . t  (3) SELMA PARK has, for'years, maintained street lighting as a community service without a direct charge on the taxpayer.

To Mrs. ���  Wardil the move to the    cottage closes the Pa��es of a success story. In 1946 Mr. Wardil's  health failed, this necessitated  them moving from    the    city,  having a    summer    home    at  Gibsons,  Mrs.  Wardil thought  this would be an    ideal    spot  for a tea room. The fact that  they lacked money to equip a  tea room failed to daunt Mrs.  Wardil,   she  made it   "known  that   she  could knit expertly,  the orders for knitting began  to trickle in.  With the first $25 earned  she bought a bridge table with  four chairs, the orders for  knitting came even faster than  the needles clicked, soon there  were four sets of tables and  chairs, and Mrs. Wardil was  launched into the tea room  business, naming her little  home "The English Tea Room"  The business prospered and  Mr. Wardil's health improved^  Within a    short    while    they  achieved    their    ambition    of  building a   guest   home.    The  good management, and the good  meals   made   the  guest  home  a popular   "Home away  from  home." Extra help was employed, the venture successful. Ill  health again makes   it   necessary for the Wardil's to retire  from business, but in doing so,  Mrs.  Wardil knows the   satisfaction of accomplishment.

MORE BOOKS USED  University, of. B.C.'s 304,000  volume library is third largest  in Canada, even though Canada's boom in finance, trade and  manufactures has not penetrated as far as university libraries, UBC librarian Neal  Harlow said today in his annual report:  "Although two dozen other  libraries on the continent have  pased the million-volume mark  no university library in Canada  has.done so," he says.  "Funds to develop library  collections are limited, so  that meager libraries are be-  ing meagerly supported.    The  Coast News Jan.  19  1956      7  bocm has   not yet penetrated  this far into the national core,'"  Mr. Harlow said.  Within the last few 3-ears  the library has, by means of  special grants, built up a number of the finest subject collections in Canada, notably in  medicine, law, Slavonic studies, forestry and in French-  Canadian studies. Promising  but less thorough developments are taking place in an-  thrology, Asian studies and in  fisheries.  During the fiscal year 1954-  55 a total of $129,664.58 was  spent for new acquisitions.  This includes 20,368 new volumes as well as increasing  amounts of microprint, micrqr  card and-^ microfilm, sizeable  additions of material in Chinese, Japanese and Slavic languages and many government  publications which have not  been processed  and1 counted.  A total of 258,501 books  were borrowed from the library during the past year. It  is interesting to note that the  number    of    books    borrowed  from the UBC library by other  libraries has increased iri the  past three years.

If you remember a lot of  this trouble was caused in the  Little League playoffs Last  ji-ear when racial discrimination reared its ugly head and  some teams would not play  other teams because they had  coloured boys playing.  For grown men, who handle  these teams, to let this happen  is an unforgivable offence.  They are going against the constitution of Little League  which reads in part "so that  boys, no matter of race, creed  or  colour may play ball".  Boys themselves, and after  all it is their organization,  would never give a thought to  the colour of another boy unless it is taught to them by  ignorant ��� adults. Mr. Stollz,  who has resigned because of  this and other situations has  threatened to form what would  be an outlaw league. This also  would .be a mistake athough  he is a firm believer in the  constitution of Little League.  The Major leagues have, after  many yars, overeome this obstacle so it should be that  much easier to do so in the  Little League.  We on the Peninsula coula  become a victim of this discrimination but- so far have  shown that all organizations  have better foundations,  We are all God's children  no matter what race or colour  and in the terrible thought of  another war in the next few  years all these boys, no matter of race, creed or colour,  that are now playing ball in.
