An interested- spectator irt  the. proceedings was Jack:  Mayne, returning officer and;  representative of the provincial government during the  proceedings that transformed  Sechelt from unorganized ter~  ritory to a village.  During the discussion: on the  placing of insurance with the  various companies Commissioner Gordon expressed the  opinion that it should be distributed in rotation among all  the insurance agencies operating in the village.

While Gibsons did not report quite as rapidly as did  Roberts Greek,- it surpassed  last year's total by a fair-sized  amount. Last year's final figure, was $454.42 and this year  to date with more expected the  total is $635.  The general meeting of the  Seaview Community Cemetery  was held at the home of the  secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Elizabeth Donaldson, on Wednesday, April 11 with trustees  Mrs. Eleanor N. Morris  Mrs. Donaldson, Mr. H.E. Wilson, Mr. David Herrin and Mr.  E.R; Tborrison present.  Mrs. Morris, president and  Mrs. Donaldson, secretary-  treasurer,, gave reports from,  which it appeared the cemetery and its finances were in  better shape than they had  been for some years, and it  was decided to mark out further plots, and to look into the  matter of clearing another  piece of grounds for future use.  The trustees last year bought '  a power-mower, and the caretaker, Mr. McFie reported he  had done a lot of Work with  it to make*the grounds pre:  sentable . It was also reported '  that twice within recent months  motorists had tried conclusions  with the fence and gate, but  the damage had been repaired,  and that drivers in both cases  escaped  unscathed.  Seaview  Community  Ceme  tery is a privately owned ceni-  etary, the land having been  bought by money raised by  local subscription, and title  was issued in, 1949 to the late  Robert Telford, the late Henry  King, and Mrs. Eleanor Morris as trustees. The only income is from the sale of plots,  and there is no provision for  pefrpefual care.  Early this year the trustees  approached various organizations in the district, as well as  individuals who had relatives  buried in the cemetery, for donation towards keeping the  place in decent shape, and have  received about ��60. In one instance it ran into criticism, at  leasL that was what it appeared to be until Harold Wilson  made the necessary explanation. It seems tlie matter of a  donation was under discussion  at a i local. meeting, and as it  was claimed the trustees every  year declared' a dividend  among themselves of what  was left over after expenses,  the meeting naturally was not  in favour of donating, but one  party present, who had at one  time boen a trustee, was emphatic that this allegation was  not true, and then Mr. Wilson^  who had been listening said;  that he was one of the present,  trustees, and named the other-  ones, including Canon H.U,  Oswald., and added that if anjr  one present thought that these  trustees or any Jof them got  one cent for their labors let  alone an annual dividend, they-  were-entirely wrong: The meeting then voted to make a donation.  As this suggestion seemed  to be wide spread, the trustees;  are of the opinion it should be  made clear to the public that  the only expenses in connection with the cemetery are the  amounts paid to the caretaker  for his services, and incidental  maintenance expenses, with  a very occasional extra expense  as in the case of the mower.  The trustees at the invitation of the president, Mrs..  Morris, addedi David Fox Donaldson to their number, in appreciation of his cheerful sen-  vices in attending to a lot of  the secretarial work, and also*  gave Mr. W.S. McFie iheir  vote of thanks for his care of  the cemetery beyond the call  of duty. ��   V  ����� -_  !_-l_.RlV6l3  ��� iStoe <��oast Mjeuis .

The proposed loan was $282,000, to provide a building  sum of $560,414.40 of which the provincial government would  provide one-half. To the'school district share was to be added a  sum of $1,792.80, for bylaw and debenture costs, making up the  2ban total.  Some opposition to the bylaw was based on the claim the  district was no longer increasing in population, was actually  cfecreasing, that new schools were not and would not be needed. On April 30, 1950, the school attendance of the district Was  *��43; on March 31, 1956, the attendance was 1,241, an increase  erg 498, or 67 percent.  On April 7 this year the school board found it necessary, with  Ihe approval of government inspectors, in order to provide accommodation for the rapidly increasing attendance, to submit a  further bylaw authorizing a loan of $587,600. This loan represented the full estimated cost of a new building program. In  IMs case the government, while hot advancing 50 percent of the  cost as formerly, did undertake to pay 50 percent of principal  and interest as they became due. In this recent case the rate  payers gave assent to the bylaw by a majority of 79.5 percent  ftwith one small poll to report.)  All this shows that the district is continuing growth in population as shown in the past. Evidently a large number of people  Snd this;area a suitable place in which to liye��-"7to make a living, and io raise families. It indicates a continuation of the population increase, with accompanying inci'ease in school attendance, which-began before the turn of the century.  Of perhaps more importance is the evident fact that those  ^ratepayers living here, and owning property, show full confidence in the district as a place to live, work and have' their  Somes, and are willing, if necessary, to furnish money to make  the district a still more desirable place. As long as such fueling of confidence, and willingness to meet responsibility can be  maintained it would seem the distrct has little to fear in the  iaiture.  The Sechelt vote  The Sechelt-vote for five Commissioners offered some sur-  Sf^ses and in other cases the conclusion was forgone. Mrs. Christine Johnston surprised with a vote that headed the poll and the  next in line, Bernel Gordon, who came within three votes of  Mrs. Johnston, showed the strength he was expected to have.  The other three Commissioners, Capt. Sain "Dawe, Alex Lamb  and Frank Parker were unknown quantities but the captain polled a surprisingly'good vote.  Looking' over the new board of commissioners, one can say it  sjontains balance. The women will be happy because one of their  sex was elected and the opponents to incorporation- will ..be  happy because their stalwart was elected. "The other three will  no doubt satisfy the remainder of the electorate.  It will be interesting to watch the operations of the Commission for its first year because here will be many pitfalls to avoid  and unless there* is a guiding hand with a good grasp of what  can and what cannot be done, the morass can become pretty deep'  for a new commission.  ������> However The Coast News is offering the new commissioners  complete co-operation and will strive to record faithfully- .the  various meetings the' commissiners will hold.    " ':'      '"''  Industry and juveniles  Changing econohiic conditions, and particularly; the "impact of industrialization," are  v1>Iamed for the increase in juvenile delinquency. in some of  itfte.. less developed ��� countries,  according to  a recently    pub-  fished "UN study.  The report points out that  tttere seems to be a relationship between industrialization,  when it is not accompanied,.by  adequate protective social  welfare measures, and juvenile  delinquency.  In addition, tlie number of  offences in certain countries  as increasing at a greater rate  tMaa the population. The study  cifes. as an example, figures  compiled by the United States  Shiidren's Bureau showing  that the number of youths passing through the nation's juvenile courts increased from  3&0.000 in 1948 to 435,000 in  1853, and that only a small  percentage of the difference  couia be attributed to the high-  sr." juvenile population.  THei report, which is contained* im the latest issue of the  Ihternartiohal Review of Criminal Policy, goes on to ymake  a-number of suggestions deal-  ��ng,'wilh measures for the pre-  ���:3)ention of the problem. Specifically, it urges the strengthen  ing of family life; the broadening of ��� sqhool . responsibilities so that new social functions can supplement or reinforce the role of the family;  and greater efforts to detect,  as early as- possible, the different types of behavior which  are considered, as leading to  actual delinquency.  Credit Unions  What is a Credit Union  ��� A credit Union is an organization operated by people  with a common bond of association, to /encourage thrift and  to provide credit when needed.  How does a credit union differ from a bank? It promotes  thrift by requesting its mem-,  bers to save small amounts at  regular intervals. A Credit  Union is controlled by its  members, each member has  only one vote, no matter how  much  money he  has.  A Credit Union has no high  paid officials.  Loans are made only to  members of'" the: Credit Union.  Your savings in your Credit  Union are insured.

A famous British editor, Mr.  Sidney Dark, has this to say  about effort and success:  "There is no success without  effort, there is no attainment  without preparation. Nothing  of any real value can be easily  picked up. Before the craftsman can use his hands efficiently he must submit to the discipline of a long apprentice-  ment. However splendid his  dreams, no musician, can write. '  a symphony until he learns the  laws of .harmony. The untrained may be ambitious, .  brave and eager, but they cannot win battles.  There- is a Chinese proverb:  "It is easy to open a shop but  it is hard to keep it open." At,  the present time standards of  living are high; there are probably more opportunities .for.  advancement, than at any other  time in our history. Perhaps  things come too easily and  we become-soft. There are so  many elevators that' the idea  of being carried along prevails everywhere.  We heard of a business executive who applied for a. secretary. He asked one applicant  what kind of a job he wanted.  The youth said: "I want a job  where the hours are not long  and the pay is good." The boss  said. "There is only one job  like that around here and I  don't intend to resign." All the  same he probably was a hardworking ma'n who gave all he .  had. ' :....  -..;,  When the Pilgrim Fathers  were asked to account for. their  success they said:"It was not  with us as with some other  men whom small things, disy  courage." In an article entitled:   "Books   TTWritten :   Under.  "Difficulties," the author said:  "the plain truth is that the  greatest literature of the world  has been written'not in luxurious surroundings but in squalid garrets, in prisons; frequently in beds of sickness and pain  and under other circumstances  which would have discouraged  less determined people.'V'?  It is easy to be deceived by  appearances. One listens to a  great musician and it seems  so natural we say, he is a  born musician. The truth is  that behind that apparent ease  there lies hundreds of hours of  concentration and stern disci-,  pline. For the greater part of  his life Paderewski practised  eiglit hours a day and he said  if he allowed himself to cut  this playing in half he immediately noticed it and soon after  the musical critics sensed it.  On his own confession Winston Churchill writes his speeches as many as six times and  he" would, agree with ah instructor who said to young  ministers. "The secret of self-  possession in the pulpit is  through preparation."  When Professor John Buckley said all the rich men's sons  he knew had been failures he  may not have been 100    per-  ���....'For  Guarenteed  Which and Jewelry  Repairs ���  CHRIS'S   JEWELERS  Work   done   on   the   Premises  Phone 96 Sechelt  2      Coast News April 19 1956  '"cent correct but there was  enough truth in his statement  to make it a warning to all who  get things the easy way.  Wasn't it Carlyle who said:  "Genius is the capacity for taking infinite pains." No doubt  the children of poor parents  have their .troubles but it is  well-nigh certain that making  stepping-stones out of difficulties has been the making of a  great many. To be constantly  looking for elevators is to invite failure.

Away  we  went sliding  along the water in great arcs  but managing    by    constantly  swinging   the   wheel   t'o   keep  the bow headed in the    right  direction.. By that time I was  too tired to be very frightened  but 1 must admit I had quite a  turn when I saw a huge    log  slowly  but  surely  making its  way towards us. Gradually it  up-ended and what was visible  of it began to move in a wide  circle. After   a   few gyrations  it once more lay flat and was  still fora while as if making  up its mind which way to go  next. By that time we    were  well past it. Except for a drizzling rain which soon had us  good and wet we got to Porpoise Bay O.K. about 4 o'clock  in the morning. ���  We learned later that Kathleen had been sent back to Japan! Taki'sboys, Yukeo and  Lobo were sent up to, take  ,r charge of the'store. They were  quite popular with the young  local fishermen.  In the mean time Hatashita's  family, was also growing up.  Daughter "Kay" had taken a  commercial course aty Britannia. Hi^- School. In time she  got the job of running the  store. A sister became secretary to the Japanese consul.  Kay, found herself running  the post office, the store . and  buying fish. One day she said  "���'.a' huge run of blue^back came  in. Everyone'was-so busy catching' fish she closed the store  and rowed around into the bay  here where the   fish    bit   so  ; steadily she.*. was    kept    busy  7 hauling^ them "into the boat.  . ������ ;y^Vftejr  a t?me- a.i young'Kman 7  was  sent up to help her.This  was Ted Hyashi.

Even then it  was pretty quiet until the war  began to warm up. Then the  Japanese made their attack on  Pearl Harbour. The first repercussion locally was a petition  to the Postal department to  have the P.O. removed from  the store. This was done and  the _ob given to Imer Beamish  who built a small place on'a  float and tied it up at the store  where it served as a P.O. for  several years.  Ted, "The police have come,  for us andywe have to be ready  to go by 8 o'clock in the morning. Please tell everybody in  the bay to come down to the  store before \ve go so we can  straighten up and arrange for  the payment of their accounts." '     "  . One of them was making the  rounds on 7the other side arid  another had gone through the  Chuck to Doriston, making the  same request.  It was said Nakashima, a  real oldtimer, had lit out in  his boat but he was soon found  and taken  into 'custody. ���  Next day we went down to  . the store but they were gone.  We had forgotten it was daylight saving time. It was something new then and everyone  in Egmont was ignoring it be-  ' cause the tides and fish knew r  nothing about man-made laws.  All "the Japanese from"here  and Pender Harbour were put  aboard the Union Steamship  that morning and sent to Vancouver. They were not allowed <  to take more than they could  carry. All their boats, some of  them very fine ones, were  towed willy-nilly to the'Fraser  River where they were eventually sold for what ever they  would bring.  It was said that when Kay  received the news she had to  be prepared to leave by 8 next  morning she tore upstairs and  flung open tlte cupboards and  drawers trying to decide what  to take and then she.sat weeping in the middle of the floor.  As she said afterwards she had  just begun to make the store  pay and was so proud of the  fact. It was some .time since  they had taken stock so she  had no idea of its value. It  was only a long time after and;  with a great deal7 of pleading'  that she was.allowed to come  back alone and take stock and  by that timeystu__f'r__a^,';alrieaid_/7':  been sold from the store.

Mrs. Norman quoted  the Minister of Education,  Hon Eric Wiliston who said,  "The world ahead is. different .from the    world    behind  and the new world will depend  upon the brain power of all  the people. Machinery is taking the place of the untrained  personnel so the greater need  of education is becoming more  and more apparent".  Mrs. Norman had been impressed by the address on "The  child,in the middle", between  parents and  the   government,  given by Dr. K.D. Naegele of  U.B.C.  Dr.  Naegele emphasized the fact that the problem of  education cannot be answered  finally, It is different for each  generation and that.the  PTA  while  having no political attachment should be politically  minded enough to get what it  wants  from   the   government  of the day. The PTA is one of  the bridges across the gap of  individuality.

Prior to  coming to Canada he sailed the  Pacific for two years, and it  was during this period that  he came into contact with the  Christian way of life, which  he now expounds.

It was decided to  handle activities, sports and  and dances through special  committees.  ; Several constitutional  changes were passed, including affiliation of clubs being  no longer considered necessary: That the Community hall  manager shall be appointed by  the executive committee; that  duties of the secretary shall  be divided and recording and  corresponding secretaries be  elected.  As ' this simplification becomes effective it will only be  necessary to have one annual  general meeting'instead of the  present quarterly meetings.  Nominations for president and  secretaries  were  accepted.  A donatiion of $125 to the  ���Sechelt Peninsula Little League was approved.  Don't   forget   to   read  Coast News Classified.  The  8  Coast News April 19 1956  snip  mention that I was born in  1887 at Teplice, Bohemia. After having finished my study  in Prague I became a teacher  at our town. During my O.F.  Membership I got Secy and  later deputy of the chairman  of the "Eintrach. Lodge No. 4  at Teplice".  In the year of 1938, the year  of occupation of our country  by the Germans I was dismissed  of my situation of a headmaster in consequence of my O.F.  membership and functions.  ���After liberation 1945 I worked again at Teplice until 1949.  In consequence of an accident  and my age I am unable to  work. My Pension is only a  small.one and our savings and  property were expropriated.  It would exceed the frame  of my letter to write more  fully about me, a letter with  the aim of thanking you once  more hearty for your prominent help.

Mrs. Wynne Stewart raised  the point at Monday night's  meeting of the Boardi of Trade  and July 1 was selected for the  event. The type of celebration  is still to be decided but    one  rea  under  act  suggestion put forward involved a big sports day with a  baseball tourney and parade  and other events for the youngsters.  Mrs. Stewart was of the  opinion Gibsons should not encroach on Secheltfs May Day  celebration but offer co-operation with the, hope Sechelt  would co-operate with Gibsons  on its July 1 celebration. More  will be announced on this  later.  BY CHUCK TOMPKINS  The Sunshine Coast Little  League held its pre-season  meeting at the Wilson Creek  Hall Sunday, with every team  represented and: all officials  present. This should ,be noted  by the men of the M.P.S. league who never attend.  This year the Little League  will boast five teams instead  of the original four that competed last year. The new entry  is Port Mellon and I wish them  the best of luck in their first  season. H. Roberts .was appointed as representative to the  Little League zone meeting.  The last crack at maintaining the M.P.S. League will be  Sunday as there is a meeting  of all team representatives in  the Wilson Creek hall at 3 p.m.  If this meeting is not attended it will probably mean the  end of softball on the Peninsula. I cannot understand the  'men in charge of these teams  not attending these meetings.  It might be a good idea for the  play;ers on some teams to'get  to-gether and get some new  representatives, that is if they  want to play ball this year. So  get your representatives out  to this meeting, and lets have  a bang-up ball season all  around.  Rumor has it that Pender  Harbour may be dropping out  this year and that the high-  school team is angling for  the Merchants uniforms and  franchise. I for one would not  like to see Pender drop out  but I' certainly would like to  see the high-school in.  The Vancouver Mountjes are  playing some good ball and  staying up with the leader's in  the PCL. The big trouble at  the moment seems to be the  pitching staff but this may improve with the warmer weather coming on. Ex-New York  Yankee Jim MacDonald may  prove to be the lift they need  when he is ready to take his  regular turn. The outfield of  Pisoni, Oertel and Dagres  could: turn out to be the best  in the league both offensively  and defensively.  Opening day is April 27 and  the tickets are going fast so  if you are thinking of going to  the first game you had better  act now.  re# men  WORK BOOTS & OXFORDS  DRESS OXFORDS  ALSO NEW SPRING SHOE STYLES  FOR LADIES and CHILDREN  I  i  WiS^M &mfi  FIREPROOF  WALLBL1ARD  4 X 8 X % ��� $2:20 Delivered  NOW IN STOCK: THE NEW  GYPROC   "PLANK BOARD"  in 16" X 96" Panels, With* Rounded Edges  No Cracks to Fill      7  Each 75c Delivered.

This information, is passed  on by-Richard Langdon of  Madeira Park who has received intimation from Victoria to  this effect. Here is a copy of  the letter Mr. Langdon sent  The Coast News:  In response to a petition  from the residents of Madeira  Park and Francis Peninsula; I  have this date received a letter  from Victoria enclosing the  formal notice (quote) "enclosed please find Notice constituting the Madeira Park  Pound District."  I thought this might be of  interest to you in as much as  all the necessary preliminary  notices were published in your  valued paper and also evidencing the development of this  area. It is pleasant to know  that this is no longer "free  range". Richard Langdon.  SEARCH FOR TALENT  A series of auditions to be  held this spring in various  parts of British Columbia have  been announced by Kenneth  Caple, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation director for  B.C., as part of the CBC'c continuing search for talent for  radio and Television.  LARGE SUB-STATION  One of the largest sub-stations in Canada will take shape  this year in Surrey, south of  Kennedy Road and half a  mile west of Scott Road, BCE  president Dal Grauer has announced. Initial development  will cost $1,100,000 and the  big transformers, Switch-gear  and other equipment will occupy a site 45 acres in extent.  Rake grass  with care  Don't rake your; gra__ry <-f$o  harshly this spring, and-attfe^k  those tent caterpillars nowi7ie?as  the advice of Jack Caplette of  Buckerfields, Ltd., who showed  under the auspices of the ^Kiwanis club a film oh jkist control for flowers and gave a talk  on insecticides and served coffee and doughnuts at the close  of the meeting. ^  Mr. Caplette who was assisted by Lindsay Hetheringtpn'  talked of the uses of insecticides while the motion picture  machine was being set up and  after conclusion of the film  invited  questions. y  It was during the question  period that he advised' a careful raking of the la\vn so as  not to disturb the new roots  which produce new life in the  lawn. Taking them out might  leave the lawn on the brown  side and result in a considerable delay before the lawn  'looked good.  As regards tent caterpillars  he advised a complete treatment for trees and thought the  average fruit tree could be  completely covered with the  use of water pressure aided  by a six-foot step-ladder on  which  to   stand.  He was of the opinion the  Sunshine Coast has good growing conditions and as the natural tree coverage was replaced by other and cultivated  growth new insect problems  would appear. He cited: the example of the Okanagan which  did not have much fruit tree  blight in early years because  there were not many trees  there but as they expanded so  did the insect menace expand.  ELPHINSTONE PTA  Elphinstone High School P-  TA will -hold a general  meeting on Tuesday, April 24  at 8 p.m. There will be a play  by grade eight pupils directed  by Mr. Guppy.
