Tony Gargrave, member for  this district, told Mr. Gaglardi that conditions were s�� bad  on the gravel stretches of these  highways that in one case the  school bus could not operate,  and in another patients had to  be transported by boat to hospital because road conditions  were so bad.  He told the minister the  secretary of the school board  at Powell River had wired  him complaining of the muddy  conditions on the Lund hi^b-  way: which-pr<Kvented^thepper-  atipn of the school bus, and of i  phone calls froip Seclielt, say-r  ing patients ? bound for St.  Ma_^s^IJ<-^i-a- at TPender Harbour either clid not attempt-the  journey; by road, :��rVbad to be  "transferred to trucks to get  through: the. mud. -  Tlie young member alsacril;-  ised the contract whioh was  signed by the late E.C.

In criticising; the government on its toll bridge program he reininded the Minister that the gaspjinetax-tarings  in a revenue of $16,00��.000 a  year and the revenue is increasing at the rate of half a  million each year.  This revenue could service  and repay over 20 years a  $200^000,000 liif^-way bond  issue to construct anyj needed  bridges on a toll   free   basis.  he said.-*Gbte.motorist is. taxed  enough already the 'Mackenzie  member observed.  This government is not short'  of fnoney, he said, and the toE  bridge authority is just another method of covering up  the provinces true debt picture and levying extra taxes.

Its effect would be to make it a criminal offence to dump  garbage on Crown lands and* allow arrest without warrant py  any policeman with ��� a fine ranging from $25 to $300 if found  gu2_ry. ���Crown lands means highways, too.���  But why limit this to Crown lands only? Public attitude towards garbage disposal in British Columbia may. probably be  the -worst in all Canada. So long as it can be removed from  one's premises who cares where it rests? There is too much  open territory on which garbage can be thrown and left to the  Secer-sp <sff the wind, increase, of. rats and other menaces.  "Why" cannot the provincial government with a police force at  its disposal and a mandatory piece of legislation to back them  apf extend such facilities to the general- public? Dees: not the-  public support the government financially so the government  canausfintain a police force ancl.be able to enforce its regulations?  i'l .5s true there are laws which allow the public to prosecute  bur would it not be'better to have a psychological effect at  large which could be a deterrent. The fact the culprits could be  tabbed by a policeman without anyone complaining would have  some effect and might go a long ways towards eliminating a  practice which'is definitely a black mark against those who; prefer to let someone .else take care of their garbage.  Ilbe sight of an expensive car stopped in a secluded spot while  the Drrcupant deposits a bundle or bundles of garbage close to  a blglvway. leaves  one wondering what sort of people British    lature. one of the most illumin-  a  BY TONY GARGRAVE MLA  "Debt" is a funny word.  Every body says debt is bad  but investment is a fine thing.  It is obvious that my investment is sombody else's debt  and your debt is my investment-  Ran Harding (CCF Kaslo-  Slocan is cne of the legislature's best debaters and well  informed on tlie province's  debt picture.  Lately Ran has become famous over that horse of his.  Ran, or "Beau" as his fellow  citizens of Silverton call him,  is a one-horse logger. Until  his son Ernest started University last year there were three  on the payroll of the Harding  logging compay - Ran, Ernest  and the horse.  *  *  *  Ran uses his horse to give  the government homely advice  from time to time.  Ran told Mr. Bennett last  week "My horse :' thinks the  world of you, Mr. Premier".  "My horse says," Ran continued, "that if the government  continues to give away our  forests to all the big companies .  he will not have any more  logs to pull out of the bush and.  could then go on the pension!"  In spite of his joke the member of Kaslo-Slocan has lots of  horse   sense.  Last week he gave 'the legis-  Cokimbia harbors. It is a 'low point in civic pride - regardless  of whether the territory is within his or her own "municipality  or some other municipality: Civic pride should not be .. confined.

Ferries withdrawing its support from Gibsons because- it  did not receive anyi co-operation from Gibsons.  It could have been sensational all that was said but after consideration the editor decided the best thing to do was to spare  t&e feelings of people involved. It would appear that the whole  snsttter wars the: result of misconstruing certain information and  jait-in-g a wrong emphasis on what was to occur.  As mf^ers_^ turned qutjthe .reason forVtliei-emarks made 1c-  C3___w (SM root appear valid and to avoid the hard feelings, the  editor decided to-limit the news coverage to a denial only.  The remarks that arose as a'result of the information did  contain 'some heat and might have made ^interesting reading /toi  those people who love discord. As there is .sufficient discord in  the world today the editor decided not to add anymore.  The Coast News holds no belief favoring Black Ball Ferries  ttu�� i- ctaes favor fairness "and the editor, exercising his prerogative ����. ^making a decision as* tc -how he would handle this affair,  hopes he did the right thing.

Four burned-out  Peninsula families  for funds has opened  ating talks on our province's  debt. picture we have * yet  heard.  He told the premier, who is  also minister of finance^ that  government claims of $65,000,-  0.00' reduction in debt since  they took over office is completely false.  \'What you've been peddling  to. the people on debt has been  very misleading" he told Mr.  Bennett. :  I-        *        *  Ran Harding said that when  the government took office  the province's total net debt  was $175,000,000 not $191,-  000,000 as elaimed. '���".  Ran Harding quoted from a  Social Credit, Vancouver-Centre by-election leaflet which  inferred that the net debt of  the province was $191,000,000  when the present government  came  tG pbwer.  That was not true, he said,  because the government did  take office till August 2, 1952,  when the province's net debt  was $175,000,000. The Liberals had paid off $16,000,000  between Aug. 2 and the province's-debt peak in February  of that year. That lopped off  $16,000,000 from the $65,000,-  000 debt, reduction claim.  Next Harding said that  when the government changed  the school construction financing system in 1953.. school  boards were required to float  all of the construction bonds.  Prior to that time the provincial government hads either  floated half of the- bonds or  paid half of the  cost out    of  general revenue.  y ./���'.      -.*'���'���*   *.  Believe it .ior; .not, but we  have spent of.7 $50,000,000' on  school construction since 1953.

If we remember.. that -��� the ���  government is now ^building:'!  abridges on a toll basis instead  of floating ordinary ' highway  bonds {which should be paid  for out of gasoline tax), we can  knock  an additional $58,000,-  000 of that $65,000,000 debt rer  duction claim because that is  the cost of the    Oak    Street,  Rosedale - Agassiz,    Kelowna,  Second Narrows  and    Nelson  bridges, and the Deas Tunnel.-  By claiming   a    $16,000,000  debt repayment made by a previous  administration and creating two additional    sets    of  books (school construction and  toll authority) the present government has, as  Ran Harding  puts it, "created    a    fantastic  fairy tale about ��ur province's  debt structure."  BLACK   BALL  FERRIES  Editor: At a recent meeting  of the Gibsons District Board  of Trade, certain veiled half  threats or promises, were made  to the effect that the Black  Ball Co. were to forsake our  fair village and transfer their  Ferry {Terminus to Hopkins  Landing.    ���    '   '  This sir - -was music to my  ears; I had begun to wonder  if the herring would ever  oc;me to life.

Extremely suited to  the harbouring of pleasure  craft, and a home base for  our local fishing fleet,; who  will in the final, do more for  the orderly, permanent devel-  ��� opment of our basin, than any  Ferry  Boat.     .  As long as we, allow ferry  boats to dominate our harbour  with their accompanying congestion and confusion, we will  never have sane, progressive  development of our village and  waterfront.  So I say again Mr. Editor.  Let us bid Bon Voyage to the  Ferry Boat and speed its transfer to. Hopkins;-    .  W.H.  Mylroie.  SMART LETTER  Editor. The smart letter of  of the Teenagers causes food  for thought, thus, 17 is 17 in  any generation. We of the older generation were neither  better or worse. We were not  subjected to the distractions of  to-day. Radio, T-V, Abstract  Art, but we would read trashy  love stories if available, which  had to be smuggled through  the underground. Seventeen  is either up in the clouds ' or  down in the depths', only God"  and wise parents can guide  them.. It is possible that they  are trying to break' through  t0 something alive, like theatre, and I see where Mrs. Crit-  chell is starting a Dramatic  class, so get with it kids, some  , day yod might be stars.  Everyone seems to be in  favor of them learning to  drive at school. I wonder!  Sixteen is certainly too young.  The dealers won't sell more  cars if their customers' are  killed young. What a sad example we had last week, those  three nice kids killed. They  have schools for learning. spec^  ially, I don't see how the teachers have time to do it with  itheir crowded curriculum.  They have cars before they  are able to pay! board, they  should be learning a trade  first instead of trying to start  at the top and get the same  wages  as skilled tradesmen.  Another thing that does not  help them is their black marks  goes out of school with them,  which makes it hard for them  to.get employed, we all know  that some of the biggest dunces  has made a success in the  world, and cone of the smartest men have failed. I was  reading some time ago where  ���the first quizz -kid committed  suicide, (he was a clerk in a  hotel), and you remember -how  smart they were. So bury their  past when they leave school.  God fearing employers will  give them the breaks.  Margaret-Allan.. :  Seohelt West:"  more on Teenagers  Editor: The teenagers .seem to:  hove proved, their case: that  they are a group, pf :V.young  people of whom any .immunity, should :���;be'Avjd&ly; *pnj��d. L  almost eyer_^hing printed,  broadcast or whispered is some  sort of^ propag^uid^, they have  perceived that tlie��� responsibility^ for their; behavior 7 and ���  achievements: rests hot with  parents, school, church or  community but primarily . /wi.th  themselves.   / V,  isn't it unfortiinate tiiat parents know so little of father  Zebedee and how;- he managed  to rea_> such worthy sons as  James and John in the brae  environment that spawned Judas Iscariot?  It is clearly the duty of parents to inculcate in their children principles of self-respect,  trustworthiness, justice, good  judgement   and the ability to  use it, and respect and consideration for others. But that  training should be^jn even in  pre-school years. If it is neglected till the teen-age years,  the influence and example- of  parents is sometimes too little  and too late. In that case it is  equally clearly the duty of  school, church and society to  supplement the efforts of parents rather than foolishly to  berate parents for their apparent failure.  " There seems to be an unfortunate confusion in the  minds of some people between  teenagers and delinquents. Delinquents are ex-teenagers,  physically mature but mentally juvenile if not infantile,  who have ignored or repudiated all influences that might  have helped them to . become  upstanding citizens.; They just  don't know the score. But.  even they should not,be too'  discouraged. They have long  years ahead of them though it  may be later than they think  to make the best use of them.

THROW IT  THE  GOLDEN  CHAIN  There is a golden chain of  good-natured decent people in  the world who find their chief  happiness in making others  happy, A distinguished man  retired from political life in  Britain said: "I have found the  world chuck full of kindness;  when I think of it all it makes  me   very humble."  When people talk like this,  it reflects their own gracious  spirit; only, a kind man senses  of kindness of others for the  world is "like a mirror and  what we see depends upon ourselves. When Thomas Carlyle  said the world was full of  fools, he was feeling bitter, but  it was not a true picture of  himself for in the main he had  excellent qualities.  One.thing seems clear to me  as I grow older; the more we  believe in the downright decency of-people, the more we  increase our own happiness and  add to the sum total of the  good-will in the world. We  pass through this world but  once and it is a great privilege to share the burdens of  others. One rainy night in  East London a friend of mine  was. on a crowded street-car.  He had been standing all the  journey, but when he got off  he said to me: "Aren't tbey a  grand lot, so full of fun and  good nature?"  A boy living in the south cf  England, whose parents had  died, was thrown upon his own  recourses very early in life.  He was told that if he could  make his way to London he  would find employment. So he  decided to go by boat, at that  time the cheapest way to travel.  A man on board noticed that  the lad did not appear at mealtimes. He got into conversation with him, and when he  found out that be could' not  afford meals, he bought them  for him. The boy was extremely  grateful, and when the time  came to part, he asked the  man if there was anytthing. he  could do to repay him. .��� ....  "There is brie tiling you can  do", was the reply, ' "and if  you promise to do it, I shall  be fully repaid for any little  thing I have done for you.  This is a difficult world for  ;some people, and many are  having a hard time. Will you  pass on .the kindness I have  shown you to somebody else?  That is all I ask."  Many years   afterwards  this boy . became influential  and was able to help his benefactor's son, who was in great  difficulty. It gave him great  pleasure to do this, for one of  the mottoes of his life had become:  "Pass  it  on."  A wise and good man said:  "I see two great heaps in this  world ��� one of human happiness and the other of human  misery. If it is possible for me  to take the smallest bit from  the heap of misery and add it  to the other, I shall be happy.  If, for instance, I find a child  who has lost a cent, and by  giving him another I can wipe ,  away his tears, I have done  something."  Newspapers recently carried a story of a youth  who lived near a dangerous canal and had saved  18 lives. He . was decorated  with a medal and given potb-  ���-' lie recognition. He deserved ii^  for such interest in the welfare of others is wcnderfuL  But the number of people who  have such physical strength  and opportunities is not large.  In the larger sphere of ordinary life hardly a day goes by  that does not afford an opportunity cf passing on some, kindness to another. When the  disciples asked Jesus who was  greatest in the kingdom, of  heaven, he said: "He that is the  greatest among you shall be  your  servant."  Our quotation to-day is W.  Wordsworth. The chief portion of a good man's life ��� Ms  unremembered acts of kindness and  cf love.

Our Town  to be staged  "Our Town" is a popular  Broadway play by the distinguished American playwright  Thorton Wilder.  Its theme concerns life and  death in a small New England  town at the turn of the century. Wilder's treatment of the  plot may be considered! unusual by today's standards as he  relies very much upon the ima-  ginationybf the audience.  Aside from a few set pieces  such as step ladders, chairs and  trellises, there is no scenery  in the accepted sense of the  word. However tlie lack, of  painted settings has never  hindered the play's success as  the public has discovered to  its pleasure,' that conventional  scenery is not always a must.  The plot deals with the lives  of a girl and boy growing up  in the town of Grovers Corners, New Hampshire. Emily  and George experience in  three acts the full range of  human emotions, from the  thrill of first love to the sor-  tow of early death.  "Our Town" will be playing .  at the Elphinstone high school  March  16.

Sechelt Loggers' association  presented a further brief to  the Slcan Royal .Commission  1 on forestry problems recently  and this additional brief supported the use of the Ontario.  Crown timber sales method, as  giving the loggers ��� a better  break. The brief was presented by Alex Lamb, president of  the association. Here it is.  Mr.   Commissioner;  On behalf of the Sechelt Forest Loggers Association, T am  pleased t0 attend again before  you to express the opinion of  this association on the question of Forest Administration  in the Province of Ontario,  more particularly set forth in  a report to ihe Crown Commission on Forest in British Columbia 1955 on the management of Forest Lands in eastern Canada by J. Miles Gibson,  B.ScF., D.Sc, L.R. Seheult,  M.ScF., being Exibit 144 before this Commission.  1. Departmental Management Units: This system we  submit is similar in effect to  the suggestion which we made  before this Commission in the  brief presented to you on September 1st 1955, marked Exhibit 149. We veiw the establishment of Departmental Management Units with favor and  it is our submission that the  establishment of such a system in British Columbia V together with granting more  authority to thes Forester in  the field would be of great advantage to the logging industry as a whole.  2. Advisory committee to  the Minister:. Again we are of  the view that the .establishment of such an Advisory  Committee is desirable. We  feel that such a Committee  would be of advantage in affording to the Minister of Lands  and Forests a much better opportunity to become acquainted with and understand the  problems of the Forest Industry. It is our submission that  consideration should be given  to the establishment of a  Board of Review quite independent of the Forest Service  which, wiculd adjust any differences between the operators  and  the Forest  Service.   - V  3 Methods of Disposal of  Crown Timber: One of the  most interesting features of  the Ontario Forest policy to  the Sechelt Forest Loggers  Association is the policy of offering Crown Timber for sale  in that Province as more particularly set forth on pages  23, 24 and .25 of Exhibit 144.  We feel that such a policy  gives the established operator  a reasonable measure of protection in the over-cut and balanced units. We feel that the  establishment of such a policy  in British Columbia is a nece's  sity in many coastal forest  areas and certainly in the Sechelt Forest District. We would  like to add the opinion that a  person bidding at an auction  of timber cutting rights should  be a Canadian citizen 0r a Canadian tax paying  eorportion.  4.; Multiple Cutting Rights  for Crown Timber: We note  from Exhibit 144 that in Ontario a practice has been   es-  NOW Has  the Agency  for  EVINRU DEMO TORS  -    Come in and price  the Model you Need  TAKE   ADVANTAGE   OF  OUR FftEE DELIVERY  on FRANCES PENINSULA  or MADEIRA PARK Areas.  on orders of $5 or Over  MURDOCH"    Phone 3F  MARINE       Pender  SUPPLY       Harbour  ROYAL   TV   AMTENNAp  ��� ���   ������ ��� ��- _>  Installation Crews on Peninsula  once weekly ���".���'���  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF LOW PRICES NOW  .   20 ft. ,2-9. element Hi-Gain Yagis, plus a  Channel Z Head completely installed $65  30 ft Same Installation      $79.50  40. ft Same Installation     $94.50  No Down Payment Necessary  Phone collect EL6919 or write 5616 Victoria Drive  Vancouver  UNICN  RED & WHITE STORE  The- Largest Pood Store on the Peninsula  With the Widest Variety  Phone Sechelt 18  FOR FREE DELIVERY  GROCERY SPECIALS: THURS.

Elphinstone  Cougars won against Langley  and now go into the playoffs  starting with Powell River in  two weeks.  The Gibsons Orphans remain undefeated, but just  barely, as they squeezed out a  slim 42-39 win ever Vancouver Senior "B" champions  from the Kimount Athletic  Club.  With 17 seconds left in the  game and the locals leading  byi one point Dick Reichelt  dropped in two free shots to  give the Orphans a cinch win.  Zalo, of Kimount with 10  points and Godfrey of the Orphans wth 13 were top scorers.  The Orphans, who played a  double header,* downed Pender 42 - 24 in the first game.  Pender is improving and next  season should be a pretty fair  ball team.  On Friday night at 8 p.m.  in the High -School Gym the  Cougars and the Orphans tangle again, probably for the  1st time this season. These two  teams always give the fans a  good show and it is also a  chance for the fans that haven't  > seen the Cougars in action to  see them before the plawoffs.  It will also be the last  chance of the season to see the  Orphans who have more than  proved themselves against  some of Vancouvers best commercial teams. So come on out  and support the boys. They deserve it.  One of the more valuable  things that is accomplished by  sports is the publicity that the  Peninsula has gained by having winning basketball teams  traveling around  the country.

The Mops racked up  2712, and the Kiwanis 2702.  After the walkaway the Kiwanis had with. ihe baseball  game last summer, it appears  that the men were just being  gentlemen, that is after they  had used every sneak attack  they could think of. When  the truth does come to light it  will have to be admitted that  the Kiwanians just didn't have  the necessary skill to. .beat  the girls,   .
