Credit rating institutions are taking a look at the credit situation along this coastal area and it can safely be surmised, are  wondering.     y  . They have good reason for wondering. There seems to be a  reasonable amount of money floating around but not.too much  g�� it. is being used.to pay off debts in what might be considered  a normal space of time.  Banks are looking somewhat more closely at their commitments and it is becoming more difficult to obtain leans. It can-  no* fee said it is-because the banks do not want to lend riioney.  That is *aie way they make   themselves useful to a community.  Betail (merchants in Gibsons  are also taking a look at the  credit situation *and are in process of organizing a credit bur-  >   caaceE their own. This means that information on creditors who  a*ie.<etec5dedly slow or just plain defaulters will be available to  aeary .merchant within the bureau.  All these factors, credit rating institutions, banks and retail  KteTcbanis, cannot all be wrong about the credit situation. What  m i��/a<q8_g? One clue might he that some people have not yet  caught Tap with the business tempo /that is rapidly over-running  ..<&�� area. It could be, as The Coast News has, mentioned before,  l&ai some people are still living in the three boats a week days  said have not yet realized that business is now operating like  fire ferries, in a much faster tempo - seven ferries a day at the  peak and 14 ferries a day promised for this summer.  One's credit rating is something that should1 not be regarded  too lightly. It could mean the making or'breaking of a business.  Tfuere. are various businesses quite sound financially but their  "feoo&keeping, if any, must be in horrible shape, so horrible that  St would take the best of income tax experts to sort out the mess.  This should not be the case. If a man wants to remain in  business today he should be .businesslike. He should have a set  ef: books, even if a simple system - which might be best, were  used.  Merchants, including The Coast News, serve customers,  _3__o_nptly Vwhere possible. The individuals concerned are pleased  to-obtain the goods asked for. But are theyi pleased when you  threaten them with court action to collect what is rightfully  belonging to the merchant*. Not oh your life! They are indignant. The merchant is not supposed to feel indignant because  Itis overdraft at the bank is costing him money --an overdraft  he would not have if debtors paid their bills.  There are merchants in this area who can show a rather  lengthy list of past due debts, some small, some large and  some fairly steep. The debtors unless definitely broke, may  tbxnk they are smart in avoiding squaring up their debt but they  are not as smart as they; think they are. One's debt record has  * Iiafeit of travelling alongside of one, like a shadow.  As 5xas been stated before in these columus, if someone was  fe earmark a $100 jbdll to be passed from hand to -hand for the  csqriicif purpose of clearing up debts, a considerable amount  ceariS&ifoe wiped off the books... .   .    , ;  ;  13ae Coast News is not writing oh the credit situation because of any serious condition in its own monetary, situation. It._.  -fees have a few negligent accounts, which if paid up would-  e&__H_ up its bank overdraft quite nicely. The Coast News would  Bioe to draw the general public's attention to the fact that  tfcKsir negligence adds to he cost of doing business. Who pays  far this added ccst? Naturally the public. Howls about the high  east of living have not so far considered the past due debt -situ-  a&H-m. When a grocer marks up the price of a can of beans he  "&as in.his mind continually the overdue debt figure.  Maany stores on the prairies in smaller centres have gone on  �� strictly cash basis because they.find they cannot finance  someone else's debt. Thaft situation can arise here. Maybe it  s&ouid and the sooner the better. Chain stores operating on a  cash basis have a price advantage. Wherever they settle, they  prosjper. Few have ever been forced to close their doors.  One recognizes an honest attempt to pay off a debt and one  also recognizes an effort to evade payment. Money is useless  unless used. Its velocity, to use a monetary term, is what makes  Editor: We have been helped to reestablish ourselves after the fire and no words can  ever express the thanks we  feel to one and all for the kind,  thoughtful generousity which  helped so much to ease the burden.   ...     _. :  From Port Mellon, through  Gibsons, Roberts Creek and  Wilson Creek people sent and  brought clothings dishes, furniture, canned fruit and vegetables, hampers of . groceries,  potatoes and other vegetables,  flour, sugar, blankets, pillows,  lamps, towels, djsh towels,  sheets andV pillow .cases, kitchen ware of all kinds, and  lust about everything, that  goes to make, up a home.  To all those including  the Canadian Red Cross, who  offered fteds, stoves, etc., which  we couldn't, make use of, we  would also like io say "thank  you", just to know that the  thought was there helped to  brighten "our days.  We only hope that we can  be of service to our community for many years to come,  and keep Gibsons a good place  in which to. live.  Mrs. L.

Reason for my appeal is that,  in past six months or more,  about six dogs have been struck  and killed outright by motorists. The point I wish to make  is there are about 20 or more  children in1, this area and one  of these days its going to tie  more than just a pet that gets  it.- ' ',.  -  This section has almost become a speedway, a few minutes could save a life either of  the child's pet or the child...

Augustine  tells    of. how"  he  greedily  sought  honor   and   a  position of eminence. He wanted the gains  and successes of  the world, and to the unusual  degree he  secured   them.  But  the satisfaction he  sought did  not come with them. One day  he passed along the streets of  Milan on his way to deliver a  panegyric to the Emperor.

The  utter futility of worldly honor  impressed  upon  him  a  lesson  he  never  forgot.  - One would think that the  utter folly and uselessness of  ���worry would become more apparent than it dees, for no  amount .of anxiety to-day can  possibly lessen to-morrow's  burden; in fact 'quite the reverse is true. Anxiety about  some future t|sst actuary  makes us less able to .meet  the very experience we dread.  When we tryi to carry to-day's  load and to-morrow's load at  one time we inevitably invite  disaster. Someone has said,  "No man ever gave way beneath   the  burdens   of   tc-day.  during late April and May.  imperial Oil will bring the  top teen-age driver from, each  local contest to a one-day regional final to compete for  permanent trophies and cash  awards offered by the company.

'" From my point of view Montreal Canadians still look like  the team to take the Stanley  Cup. Any tough competition  should <come from the rejuv-  inated New York' Rangers.  What do you think Ray?  x Even though the B.C.  Gov  ernment cut the throat of Sunday sport  for Vancouver   the  baseball fans will still see some  real  ball this  summer as the  / Vancouver Mounties are signing up lots of talent. I will  have information on seating,  tickets and schedules in the  very hear future and will pass  it on in this column.  These is a rumour that Babe  7 Ruth    League     baseball    will  DADS  Q&. ao Gootx!  fold up on the Peninsula before it is even started. For  people who seem to be so con-  cerned'^ov^r." the welfare; of  ;. teenagers minis' is a funny Iway  V o) ^pwii^g it. "1'X'xXX  The problem of a community park^^f or the Gibsons - area  is a grave one and should be  looked into at once, by I  ., think, the Gibsons, and District  Recreation Commission. This  organization has in its ranks,  people of varied interests as  well as a Village Commissioner, so who would, be better  equipped to spearhead such a  movement. >  There seems to be many likely spots for such a development as this which could very  weli take care of all the outdoor sports such as baseball,  softball, soccer etc. and could  also be used, with the construction of proper buildings,  for our fairs, cfrnivals and  celebrations/   .     ....   /:      ���  The Jackson Bros Park  which has been donated, could  be cleared and made into a  fine park' for picnics along  a few playground facilities  fpr (children. This responsibility rests with the Board of  Trade. I believe the time to get  started is NOW. This column  is open togive all the help and  publicity these projets need' so  let ACTION become our-byword.
