During the discussion Mr. Wilson  explained why the firemen  turned down the annual dinner tendered by the village  ' Commission.. He said the reason was that the department  preferred the money for the  dinner be alloted to repairs toi  the building housing the fire  equipment. Chairman Ritchey  thought the suggestion was a  fine one and should be brought  to the attention cf the public.

One'can sense that some of the steam has been taken out of  British Columbia's Mr. Premier. Events in the legislature have  ziot been too kind to him.  The resignation1 of a cabinet minister under the circumstances  as published by the daily press does no good to any government. Mr. Premier is new on the defensive. He has shown that  By his actions. ,  ^The resigned cabinet minister is also on the defensive judg-  fiig from the statement he issued. Blaming another political  Barty might satisfy the mind of the resigned, minister but the  general public can sense trouble when implied in that manner.  Mr. Premier has been somewhat forward in stating the Liberals and the Conservatives were dead on their feet and that  the CCF. did not count. Mr. Premier should remember how he  gptv elected. It was because the public were tired of the old-  line-parties. They did not elect a Social Credit government.  They defeated the old-line parties. They can in the same man-  aes put the old-line parties or the CCF. into power in exactly  tlie same way - by voting against Social Credit.  Too many politicians take upon theriiseelves the laurel wreath,  and toga of office in the belief THEY were elected. Some-  Sow it turns out that someone was defeated and in that de-  tfeat our hero gets elected. Food for thought ��� but maybe politicians prefer to do their  own thinking.  We have gremlins, too  Those rather nasty little things known as gremlins love to  35"olic around the average newspaper office and no matter what  ���one does or how close one's guard is, they creep in and play  their peculiar kind of havoc.  That is why the editorials last week contained some glaring1  snistakes. There were also some bloopers in the news columns  and here too we can blame the gremlins.  The perfect newspaper will be turned out some day by some  hard-working individual but perfection is achieved once in a  while only.  There might be five people watching that a certain thing  does not occur and when tlie' paper is all printed someone dis-  aovers efforts were in vain. The mistake is there. JKEow it got  there only the gremlins know.  Sometimes printers have a gremlin streak in them. Take the  ��ase of one man who made up Saturday's church page on a  daily newspaper. He would find he had about three or four in-  ;2hes of space to fill with news. What did he pick-up to fill the.  apace? Naturally a story in which some lurid crime was detailed  im all it utter gore. A lesser story, possibly with a church tinge,  Se would use to fill a hole on the sports page. So, readers oney;  and all be thankful we have not too many gremlins on- The  �����oast. News.

MORE ON GIBSONS  Editor, I was interested in  the letter of Mr. W.H. Mylroie,  published in The Coast News  of March 1, in which he refers to sane, progressive development of our village and waterfront, something that is  very much in doubt at the  present time.  To say the least, the water  approach fo Gibsons is by no  means attractive,    because    of  lack of  satisfactory    development of our shore line.    The  mistakes of the past cannot be  fully corrected new, but there  is every indication    that    we  have not yet learned a lesson  in this regard, particularly in  the matter of improving    our  waterfront,    and ' making    it  more attractive to those    who ���  are  likely  to  comev to  reside  in this' community,    bringing  with them a steady sustaining  revenue, and one that is maintained, not only in good times,  but also in times not so .prosperous.       .  SThe attitude being apparently* adopted now is to censider  thef immediate dollar revenue,  and there is a laek of appreciation of tbe necessity of taking  a long distant view of tlie  economic Tsiiisatidn.  Gibsons and the    surround  ing district is almost a suburb  of Vancouver,  when you consider  the   transport     facilities  available.   There,  are   ��� many  people now engaged in various  occupations on the    Mainland  7 wh0 have their eye    on    this  Peninsula, and who will settle  7 here eventually, if  the  cohdi-  .'tions are such as will  enable  them to do so.  Gibsons cannot have its cake  and eat it. As I hinted in a  previous letter, we have, got  t0 make up our minds whether  we want to encourage in the  main, a residential community  or not. If the.present attitude  continues, we will be neither  a residential or industrial community. In that connection, I  am discussing Gibsons, and the  immediate ^adjacent area. In  my opinion, Gibsons is wasting  time talking industry in its  midst. There.are a number of  reasons that could be quoted  to support this contention. A  divided effort is 'going to get  us nowhere, and is only hold:  ing up action along proper  lines.  Mr.-Mylroie states in his letter "that we have here in Gib-  ; sons a beautiful natural basin,  extremly suited to    the    harbouring of pleasure craf., and  a home base    for    our    local  ^fishing fleet",I agree.  Let us  press for a breakwater in this  connection,  develop the "Bay"  along  the  lines  suggested  by  ��� Mr. Mylroie,  and forget what  has  been, dicne on  the waterfront for the last 50 years.

Thinking of the years that  Bad passed since he was asked  to look after the Wolf Cub  3?ack he was remembering how  the Old Wolves had come to  Mm telling him that the cubs  were likely to be running  ���wild because the Old Wolves  hadi to hunt so hard to keep  them all in food, etc., there  was no cftie to advise them  and to call them to the Council Rock.,  Baloo the I��ear was there  ���with Bagheera the Black Panther and Raksha the Pack  another but there was no wise  ��Id Wolf to) guide the cubs and  icall the Pack to the meeting,  so they had come to him, a  ���wolf grey with years and had  ihonoreel him by asking him  to call the Pack together and  tbf teach the cubs the ways of  the wise wolves.:,  That had been two winters  and two summers ago and now  he had the third Pack under  his care.  There had been times in the  past when the first Pack had  got out of line for a short  while but Akela had been  wise enotugh andl Baloo had  shown his strength, so the  Pack had held together and  had come through stronger  than ever.  The second pack had carried  eta in the tradition adhering to  the Law: The Cub gives in to  the old -Wolf. The Cub does not  give in to himself.  Akela then let his thoughts  go back to the last two <*r three  meetings of the latest Pack  and remembering how unruly  some of the cubs had been and  how -he had asked them to repeat the law and the prc&nise  and had tried again and again  to keep them in order fcy  stressing the words. "To keep  the Law of the Wolf Cu��b Pacl_  and to do*a good tarn to someone Every pay^y,^u7:7l^p,,  Akela, must be getting too old  fo* ihe Cubs. They really seed  ed a younger Wolf to look up  to and obey as they were being very tiresome to him and  Baloo was  away  on   a    long  trail while Raksha cciuld  not  travel to the meeting place because oi sore paws. . ?  Tfoe Call.was out   for    the *  meeting. Some of    the    Pack s-  were away playing elsewhere  and some were    doing    their y  awn hunting. Akela with Bag- '  heera tried to get the meeting  to order  but  the   Bandarlogs  must have  been telling tales  to the cubs for even some   of  those    who    were    the'   best  of the Pack were affected, so  Akela sadly) left the place of  meeting, the Council Rock and  Cub Lairs to   Bagheera * and I  took the long trail back to his  den knowing that his days of  ixse&Jlness l0 the   Pack   had  came to an end andl all he could  efo was wish them all,  Good Hunting.

A meeting has been called  to discuss the situation. Will  the children be in the care of  responsible drivers to and  from another district? Do  parents wish their children  to be that far from their  homes, and that late, oh  school nights? Do parents object to the Teeners hiring public halls for public dances for  Turnout  "the purpose of raising money?  Do parents prefer that the  Teeners held Teen Town for  the sake of amusement or to  further some good cause such1  as Crippled Children's Hospital? These and other questions  will be discussed.

Of interest to many is the  Fair Employment Practices  act and the Holiday with Pay  act. 7  Let us take the first bill: Its  full name is An Act to prevent *  Discrimination, in Regard- to  Employment and in Regard to  Memhership in Trade-Unions  hy Reason of Race, Religion,  Colour, Nationality, Ancestry  or Place of Origin. It is a  good/Act and the government  is to be congratulated for introducing it. I supported it, of  course..  Perhaps you may be interested in reading the explanatory note that y was printed  along with the Bill to help  the MLA's in debate. It said:  This Act makes statutory  (written law) the principle that  it is contary to public policy  in British Columbia to discriminate against men and women in respect of 'their employment because Of race,' religion, colour, nationality, ancestry   or  place   of  origin.  That is explicit enough isn't  'it! ���   y  y  The act prohibits, among  .! other things, an employer  from advertising or using an  application form which discriminates against race etc.  An employer who places a  sign   outside  his   plant   which  MacDonald  farm  is sold  % Mr. John MacDonald has recently moved from his property next the Elphinstone High  School, where he has lived and  farmed for many years. He  sold' his '������property to Keith  Wright, of the M and W stores  of Gibsons and Roberts Creek.  Mr. Macdonald, known to  all old-timers &s Johnny Mac,  was troubled more about finding a place for his old horse  than he was .about anything  else on the place. Mr. Westall,. ,  of the Elphinstone school  maintenance staff will take  care of the horse.  Keith Wright, in buying the  property, stages it is partly in  the nature of a speculative  move, looking to future7 development in the area.  John says the old horse, now  30 years of age, had been with  them for 22 years, and is  frisky  as     colt.  Both John and his wife are  pleased with the move, and  find living in the home previously ".occupied iby Mrs. K. Hen-  dierson much quieter.  Watermellon  Press is born  . The first copy of, the "Watermellon- Press" is cut. Published monthly by the pupils  of the Port Mellon School, the  proceeds are to go toi the Junior Red Cross.  Colin Johnson the editor is  assisted by .Gail Greggain and  Sharon Harrcp, with Jacqueline Atcheson, Roger Edmunds  and John Stewart Art Editors,  and Lynn Strayhorn and David  Harris circulation managers.  The first issue contains reports on work being done for  the Junior Red Cross at Port  Mellon,1 and articles, poems  and drawings covering a variety cf subjects, Australia "and  New Zealand, industries of the  Pacifie coast, Castle : Chillon ���  in Switzerlandt and an exciting " adventure in-the African.  Jungle. ; 'y VV /V     's  says "No Englishmen need  apply"! would be breaking  the   law.  ��� The bill provides for the appointment of a director tb receive and deal with complaints under the Act.  The success of this act (a  bill becomes an act after it becomes law) will depend on its  wise  administration.  -'A blustery bureaucrat of a  director could put racial tolerance back instead of forward in  the province.  As I see it the director's job  is to educate, conciliate, and  persuade employers and others  to employ people without regard to race as the" only bar to  employment. Only on rare  occasions should the director  prosecute. Though I believe in  a judicious administration policy I believe the penalties under the act are too light. The  maximum penalty is a fine of  one hundred dollars.  The next Bill "An Act . to  provide for Annual Holidays  with Pay  for  Employees"     is  excellent. The government is  to be congratulated (again).  Section 4 of the Bill reads:  "Subject to the provisions of  this act, every employer shall  give to every one of his employees an annual holiday of  at least two weeks for every  working year of his employment."  Now a holiday is not very  exciting if you don't get paid  for it so the bill provides that  you shall receive four per-  'cent of your annual salary  earned during the year.  And the Act further states  that the. worker shall be given  his annual holiday (in one unbroken period of two weeks  or two periods of one week  each) within ten months of his  first year's service. .  This act places' B.C. on a  par with Saskatchewan on the  matter cf holidays.  '  A bill to make many needed changes to the Labour Act  was turned down by the government. And an opposition  bill to amend the Amusement  Tax act was also turned down  by     the     government.     This  amendment  would    have    allowed   charitable   amusements  to be tax free.  Incidentally the government  have changed "the fiame of  this act to "An Act to provide  Funds in Aid cf Hospital Construction". In certain circumstances charitable organizations can get half the tax remitted   back  to  them.  Any non-profit organization  putting on a show or dance for  which more than 50 cents admission is charged is strongly  advised to seek advice from  the local Government Agent  or Department of Finance'before getting too far along in  their planning.

Dr. McClean began by expressing regret tnat most  people used the term atheist  and communist synonymously.  Communism is a political term,  said Dr. McLean, andi there  are thousands of Communists  in our churches in Russia. That  is a fact we must accept  much as we dislike these views,  he said. He visited Christian  churches in over a score of  cities and said: "The churches  are much stronger and more  virile than for many years.  Many I visited were filled to  overflowing andi I was amazed at the proportion of young  people. There was a fervent  enthusiasm I have seldom seen  equalled anywhere/They) have  suffered but' they have been  purged and cleansed. Everywhere I went it was the same  encouraging  conditions.

MAR. 16      8 P.M.  HIGH SCHOOL  AUDITORIUM  Presented Byi .  a  Elphinstone  Jr. - Sr. High School  Admission 75c  Students' Union Card Holders 50c  //  Church persecution has cleans-:  ed and invigorated the Church  and no doubt history will re*  peat itself in Russia. r  During tlie first 300 years of  " its history there was a bitter  persecution ' of Christianity,  and thousands of devout people suffered, many of them being tortui-ed to death. This is  not to be wonderefl at consid-r  ering the age in. which these!  events took place. The coming  cf Christianityi meant the overthrow of the heathen systems  of religion, and so whenever  there was a pagan festival  there was a fanatical and savage wave of animosity against  Christian believers. '  Often in crowded arenas the  spectators watched Christians  being tern limb from limb by  wild beasts and while their  heroic courage frequently impressed the onlookers, the lust  for blood prevailed as the  frenzied crowds shouted  "Away with the  atheists!"  Among the many who showed almost unbelievable courage was a young Roman-named  Adrian. He was a Praetorian  Guard during the reign cf Emperor Gale'rius Maximian, a  reign characterized by much  savage and brutal persecution  of Christians. In A.p. 280  Adrian was 28 years of age and  his skill and daring as a soldier  hadi led to one promotion after  another. Like the Apostle Paul  manyt years earlier, he had-.,  been zealous in the persecution  of those who followed Jesus  and for the same reason. - he  believed they, were a menace'.  But the calmness and courage  of those he was sent to torture  made a deep .impression on  him. There was nothing young  Aidran admired so much as  fortitude under suffering, and  here among the Christians he  came face to face with such  heroism as he had never seen  on any field of battle. .  How great a struggle went  on in the hedrt of Adrian ive  do not know. He was still  young and his position well  established. N0 doubt his family was proud of a record so  outstanding andr a future so V  promising.  T0 one of the Christians being tortured he said: "What  gives you this strength and joy  in the midst of your suffirings?" "  "Our Lord Jesus. Christ, iri  whom we believe," the martyr replied.       -'  At that moment Adrian made  a swift and important decision.  He stepped up to where the  heathen judges sat and said:  "Put my name among those to  be'tortured, I also shall become'  a  Christian." *'  Adrian lived'    for    twenty-  three years   after his  conversion. He suffered  much,    but  his was a magnificent,record,  for never once  did he flinch  in his loyalty to Christ. In A.D.  303 he was slain at Nicomedia  His limbs were cut from his  body on an anvil, and he was.  then, beheaded. For seventeen"  centuries he has been the patron saint of soldiers who remember his fearless    declaration: " Put down my name".  h  ranged for the honored1 couple  who received mariyi cards and  lovely gifts from their family  and friends.

In attendance were representatives of 50 branches.  ,.. '. After the  official    opening,  representatives  of  the Armed  Services addressed the    meeting, pointing out the effective-'  ness of  the Red Cross to  all  the... Services    even    in   peace  ^timeV    .'-..,'V--;7.......  Highlights of  the    morning  session was the    address    by  George Aitken,   chairman  national    executive     committee,  of the Canadian    Red    Cross.  The most  important point he  made1 was that the Red Cross  is a truly   international body,  in which all men,   regardless  of race and creed can meet and  work together towards the alleviation of pain andi suffering. -  The afternoon session    was  given over to reports of    the  various  committee    chairmen.  All these reports were  inter-v  esting and factual but considered from our local viewpoint  the most important were:  7  1. Blood Doners: Today hospital services are very dependent on    whole    blood.    The  quota   for this year is  60,000  dioners.  2. Disaster    Services:    This  service takes in loicalas well   .  as major disasters. During the  ���   past year several residents of  ��� the  Sechelt   < Peninsula    were  helped   following,.flash  floods  and fires. .  3. Junior Red Cross: Miss  Herman was veryt infcinnative  in her report on Junior lied  Cross throughout the world; ;  not enly as to the valuable  work they do as children but  as an entry into Red Cross  as mature Citizens. Mrs.C. Day  of our High School staff, was  highly praised by corps members for her. work ~with    this  ���   branch.  4. Swimming and! y Water  Safety: B.C. has more deaths  per capita due to drowning  than any; other province, 188  deaths iri 1955. This figure is  sufficient evidence of. tHe- im- :-  portance of the work being  done by this committee.  5. Womens work: Bales and  bales of clothing, bedding etc.  are made byi members of the  Red Cross and sent all over,  the world - Ceylon, Korea,  Pakistan, etc. Mrs. Mercer  stated that the articles are so  made and selected that they  suit the climate and conditions  of the country to which they  are sent. This is one committee  that can find work fcr anyone  who likes to knit or sew.  The evening session was taken up by a question period  and presentation of "Twenty  Times Donor" certificates tcj  over 100 individuals.  The meeting was brought to  a close by the election of officers for 1956. It was particularly gratifying to me to see  Mr. Eric Marsdien, son of Mr.  and Mrs. Marsdeh ofy H��ad:  lands, Gibsons* elected ,;Brei$i- ���;.  dent of the BlCVDuasion Canadian Red Cross. ���  Itetrch is Red Cross Month.

Pres��� West Howe Sound Br.  Teachers ill  Several of the members of  the Gibsons teaching staffs  have been victims of the recent wave of 'flu-like infeo  tions.in the area, and have  ���been cff duty ill for a. few  daysv  More seriously ill has been  Alan Childs, principal of the  Elementary school, who has  been suffering; from * a form of  pneumonia.  Les Peterson, cf the high  school staff was taken to  Shaughnessy. Hospital suifer-  ing from and outbreak of an  old illness following a struggle  to get his car to the highway  after the last serious' snow.  Mr. Peterson and Mr. Childs  are now back on duty.  .  Personalized   service     to  those in needf is the key-note  of the  Junior Red Cross,    according to Mrs. Cloe Day, who  attended  a  Provincial  conference of leaders at  Nelson  recently.   The   meeting  was   organized by Miss Herman, Dominion director  of the Junior  Red Cross, and    Miss   ,Bann,  provincial director   with     the  dual purposes- of:    (1)  Trying  the    work - shop     method    of  working out problems, and (2)  to  get  the  Junior  Red   Cress  working in  a    region    where  there has been very little recent'progress.  Since Mrs. Day has been in  the field of Junior Red Cross  since 1932>- she was asked to  chair the high school section  _ of the workshop, while Miss  "C. McNab, who has also been  in the work for a number of  years," chaired the elementary  section.  Those attending from the  Kootenay were given a number of new ideas on'Junior Red  Cross work and aims. Since  the organization is a purely  voluntary one, it stresses the  opportunity for individual initiative, and the expression of  kindness, generosity and cooperation. '     \  Miss Herman,  described  by  Mrs. Day as a young,   attrac  tive women, with more vitality, "oomph" and energy than  anyone she ever saw, arid who  "erupted like a small volcano,  with enough . force to make  her hearers begin taking action at once", has -the following idea:  We must personalize cur efforts^ to those .in many7 European countries recently visited  by Miss Herman, we are  friends who like the children  in those troubled lands. We are  real, people, to them. To.us,  those chilfierh are unreal, shadows. Why., Mrs. Dayi asks; are  we not writing to them, getting t o know them?  In the present program, the  Junior Red Cross is endeavoring to  provide help that will  result in self-help. An example  is that of the provision of hundreds of sewing machines and  bolts of  cloth sent  to Korea, :  with   young Red Cross  workers  who trained    the    young  people 'to sew for themselves.  This program   provided clothing,   but much more -  pride  of     accomplishment,     sincere  thankfulness,   and  furtherance  of understanding.  Another instance worth quoting is that of several hundred  young boys, who were reduced  by lack of training, homes,  families or ether resources, to  theft in order to remain alive.  These  boys,   rounded  up  and  umor meeting  housed  in  a  large  warehouse  by local police, were provided  with a minimum ration of rice.  Thier teacher contacted the  .Red Cress; who provided tools.  The boys converted the warehouse into school rooms; bunk-,  rooms,. dining and kitchen ���..  hall .Theyi have tilled the land  arcund the warehouse and can.  now raise more food than they  need. The Junior Red Cross  has provided books fcr their  education. ���  '  In two years, the boys hope  to be self-sustaining. They call  their      converted     warehouse  ' Hope city. Part of the money  from tlie  Elphinstone    Junior  Red Cross  has gone to Hope  City. Why not our letters -too?  Mrs. Day feels that more��of  our personalities    should    ac3  company! our  pennies,   in  the  work of providing self-help for  those who have   need  of our  help  at    all.    Teachers    can,  through the Junior Red Cross, '  be    an important part of the  " new theme' of providing- personal    pride,    accomplishment  and friendship along with our  contributions     wisely    chosen  and wisely made.  What would you rather receive, the anonymous dollar,  or a 'personal fifty cents, accompanied by a friendly gesture and.someone to show you  hew to work for yourself as a  result of the fifty' cents.

Gibsons is also faced with  a much heavier demand and  must eventually have to expand their sources to meet future demands.-  Egmont, Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Irvine's Landing, all  have the same problem facing  them.  Prior to the summer of 1954,  there had been no sanitary inspection pr control in the  Howe Sound   area.  Eighteen months have now  passed since a full time sani-  tax'y inspector was posted to  this district. Progress has been  slow as can only be expected,  but it is indeed gratifying to  report that now the public is  .becoming increasingly aware  of the sanitary inspector and of  the services and advice that  are available through him.  Thanks are due to tlie Village Commissioners of Gibsons  and Squamish for their unstinted co-operation.  Although tlie regulations  governing tourist accomodation  was rescinded, inspection work  on general sanitation, drain?  age, water supplies, garbage  and other pertinent health factors have been carried on.  Some new motels have been  erected in the Pender Harbour area. Each was visited in  course of construction and the  owner advised on plumbing,  septic tanks and drainage systems, and water supplies.  As regards restuarants, cafes,  coffee bars and beer parlours,  much -work was done on these  during   the past  year;  Operators have given their full  cooperation ._ and    the     general  standard   is    now    improving  immensely.    Cleanliness     and  proper    food    handling    have  been stressed more than  anything  else.   The   biggest  difficulty has been with  the continual turn-over of staffs, necessitating    much    repetition    of  accessible only by water.  Cleanliness has been stressed  and careful meat handling and  storage. Meat supplies were  checked for source and quality.  Milk: Much progress has  been attained. A raw milk  dairy in Gibsons erected a new  barn and milkhouse and obtained- a Grade A certificate.  Another farm graded B, that  sold raw milk, gave up his retail business when he could  not comply with the requests  of the veterinary inspector.  Three other dairy f arms that  were selling milk to a jobber  were ungraded by the inspector and went out of business.  This has cleaned up the Gibsons area effectively. It. has  been particularly necessary in  this area as it is not a brucellosis free district.  Industrial camps: Many logging camps . widelyi spread  over the unit area in Jervis  Inlet, Sechelt Inlet. Salmon  Arm, Narrows Arm, Gambier  Island, Port "Mellon and along  the P.G.E. to Birken, were  visited and improvements recommended where necessary.  Standard generally is good.  Summer camps: During the  summer there were 21 camps  in operation in the Howe  Sound area. Each- camp was inspected, and good liaison established with the organizations and groups operating the  camps.  There seemed to be an increase in the number of Bey  Scout canvas camps this year  and judging by the standard  maintained in these camps, it  speaks highly of the training  and discipline that these youths  obtain in this fine movement.  In   previous years the summer season invariably brought  a few    cases    of    Shigella  amongst the many camps, but  there is now a  much    greater X  awareness of care and control,'  in  water  supply,   sewage  dis- V  posal, garbage disposal,    food  handling   and  personal   cleanliness. This year not one case  occurred  among   the    twenty-  one camps, much to our satisfaction.  Schools: All schools in  School Districts No. 46 and  No. 48 were inspected. Reports were made to the two  school boards with advice for  improvements., Building program for 1956 is likely, to be  demonstrations, etc. Plumbing,     heavy in both    districts    and  fittings, etc., have been generally improved.  Beer parlours have been inspected for glass washing, toilets and washrooms.

This list will be posted in the lobby of the Post Office  and other places in the Village area on the 10th day  of March  1956 for the inspection of the voters.  The appointed Board of Commissioners shall sit as a  Court of Revision for the said list of voters on SATURDAY, the 24th day of March 1956. at the office  of the Village Municipality, located in the POST  OFFICE Building. Sechelt. and the list as certified by  the Court of Revision shall be the list of voters of  the village municipality for all purposes' until another  .list is prepared in accordance with the provisions of  the Schedule to She "Village  Municipalities  Act."  The revised and certified list of voters shall be open  to inspection to any person between the hours of nine  oclock A.M. and five oclock P.M. MONDAY TO  FRIDAY, inclusive, at the office of the village municipality.  Sechelt.  B.C.  March  3rd  1956  W.J.  MAYNE.  RETURNING  OFFICER.  promises a -busy time for this-  office.  Water:   Heavy sampling  demands were made during the  summer  season but thanks  to  the splendid    co-operation    of  the Provincial Laboratory they  were  met  and    reports    very  promptly received.  ,   The many small  water systems   on  the  Sechelt  Penisula  were checked  often and summer    camps    and     industrial  camps also. Advice was given  tourists and campers oh water  supplies   and   the  proper  construction   and    protection     of  wells, springs,   and< other supplies. Water supplies in small  systems  have generally    been  of   fairly   good, standard.   One  system with    "iron    bacteria"  had   this  eliminated  when    a  50' length of iron pipe was replaced by wood stave.  Trailers: It is unwise for  municipalities to allow the use  of trailers as a residence in- .  side their boundaries unless  they are inside a well established and well controlled  trailer park, until there are  sufficient well planned and  well organized parks available  in B.C., the trailer problem is  likely to continue and increase.  They are becoming an ever  increasing factor of economy  whereby the;individual of limited means may take his family to the countryside or the  seashore, or to well known resorts, without the added expense of renting cabins, etc.,  and train  or bus  travel.  Storms: In the Wilson Creek  area on the Sechelt Peninsula,  the Mission Creek went on the  rampage taking out the main  highway bridge and flooding  twelve houses in the locality.  Some   people  were  evacuated  to nearby properties. The M.H.  O. was on tlie spot and advised on water and condition  of houses before allowing people back.  Flash floods of this nature  can always occur no matter  how people are prepared to  cope with such, and problems  will occur in water supplies  and condition of flooded properties. It is natural for people  to want to return to their  homes immediately the danger is over, but they must also  be protected from exposing  themselves and others to possibilities oi; epidemics from infected water supplies, particularly where supplies are from  wells.  Recent floods' have shown  how vulnerable Squamish is to  a flood potential on the Squamish, Manquam, and other  rivers flowing into it. The  threat is always present.  Locker Plants: During 1955,  a new locker plant opened' in  Sechelt. This is well laid out  with excellent equipment and  runs a meat market in conjunction with the locker. It is well  patronised.  Garbage: This is one problem that is becoming more  acute each year, both in the  village municipalities of this  area, and . unorganized territory.  In Gibsons, a private collector was .being utilized by  the business people and about  30% of the residents. The remainder got rid cf their garbage in one way or ihe other  by burning or dumping . illegally, mostly the last.  Recently this private collector quit the garbage business because it did not pay,  and Gibsons and the nearby  communities were left with no  collection and not even a  dump to take their garbage to.  Naturally, dumping increased  along highways, vacant land,  and on beaches.  The Gibsons Commission has  now agreed to provide a dump  pending the bringing in of a  Garbage Bylaw, with their  own collection and; equipment.  It will take some time to bring  in such a bylaw. In the meantime facilities for garbage disposal will be provided.  Outside, in unorganized territory, no sucli facilities exist,  so dumping is increasing and  is likely ti increase as these  communities build up.  With the rapid expansion  and development now'taking'  place in B.C., the garbage problem must be faced. It is suggested that where growth of  communities    in    unorganized  territory warrants >- it, there  should be . government controlled dumps where people  can dispose of their garbage  in a sanitary) manner.  There is nothing more disgusting than to view unsightly  piles of garbage spoiling the  superb scenic beauty of our  countryside, apart from the  danger to public health from  rats flies and pollution cf water supplies.  Drainage: In the Gibsons  area, problems . of additional  drainage disposal for new  school buildings has been a difficult one due to clay and  hardpan being on the ^surface  of ground. Some new buildings erected on sloping ground  with restricted' fields also  proved   difficult. *  In unorganized territory, instructions were given that all  new drainage installed in new  or old buildings, should be approved by this office. New sets  of simple drawings were print  ed to assist home owners in  constructing septic tanks and  drainage systems.  Bylaws: In Squamish,  amendment of the Trades Licence Bylaw gave greater and  more efficient control over  food handling establishments  in the Village. Three new bylaws were presented to the  Village Municipalities of Gibsons and Squamish for due  consideration,. viz:  (a) Public Health Bylaw  (b) Milk Control Bylaw  (c) Tourist Accommodation Bylaw. It is hoped that these  will be passed in 1956..  Husbands!; Wives!

BY   CHUCK TOMPKINS  Well Gibsons Orphans were  finally beaten by Elphinstone  Cougars and as 1 was out of  town fcr a few days I have not  heard tlie official score but I  think it was 48 - 35. The Orphans with onlyi six men were  a bit short handed but the  players say they doubt they  could have beaten the Cougars with a full team as the  high school boys played a  terrific game. I for one hope  they continue to do so when  . they invade Powell River this  weekend, so good luck Cougars.  The annual Softball League  meeting was held at Wilson  Creek on Sunday with all  teams represented except Pender Harbour. A constitution  was introduced and wil be  gone over by team managers  and probably passed at the  next meeting on the second.  Sunday in April.  There was a discussion as  to cutting the schedule to be  ready for the B.C. playoffs  and possiby having a round  robin tournament at the end  of the season for the Osborne  Cup.  Five of last years six teams  are definitely in the league  this year and Gibsons Merchants have until April 1 to  enter or drop out. There are  plenty of fellows wanting to  play ball so see Earl Lindi as  soon as possible as the deadline is not far away.  The following officers were  elected for 1956: Dave Wilson,  President; H. Roberts, secretary and Chris Woods, Vice  president.  Wilson Creek is really going ahead on a ball fields like  all other districts except Gibsons which seems to be behind in everything.  All districts (except Gibsons)  have dugouts, bleachers, proper score hoards, decent ground  rules and) a dozen other things.  Gibsons has no ball field and  none of the above mentioned  facilities and as far as I  am.  concerned no  guts  to go and  get them. We, one of the larger centers  on     the Peninsula  can't even support    our    ball  clubs as it is shown    by    the  position  of   the  Merchants.   I  say, its time to wake up.  stein 201, and W.
