This was announced at last  week's dinner at Sechelt by  BCE officials for the Sunshine   Coast.  The announcement was made  by J.H. Steede, chief engineer  ' for the company, who after  the function explained the  matter had to have approval  of the Public Utilities: Commission. He added that' investigation of the project is continuing. Clowhom is at present  on a 3,000 kw basis and BCE  want to make it 30,000 kw.

Among the many misconceptions regarding our forests and  tfaeir administration, perhaxs^ the most widely ^ a^r>?'ted, and  aertainly the most fallacious, cluster around the meaning of the  tferm "forest  conservation".  With May 19-26 designated as "Forest Conservation Week",  attention is focused on conservation and its significance in the  ssstional economy.  Today we find a great many people labelling themselves as.  aaaservationists in order to set up a smoke screen behind which  ���^���promote their own selfish interests over those of the majority.  The true conservationist .must be a man who, recognizes that  asmservation means* wise use. He should realize that, through  aaseful management,  our renewable natural resources can be  ^eofitably harvested today to the maximum benefit of himself  msl his community while still leaving a growing stock that will  ssjaiure into timber of equal or even better quality tomorrow.  .Multi-use of our forest resources can be and is carried out  ���jESEEessfully in such a manner that we consume and at the same  tg&asr protect our woods, waters and wildlife. The nicest thing  as&swit all this froin the viewpoint of the general public is that  a.,��anservationist need not be a highly skilled specialist. He can  ��&&: Mr. Average Citizen who seeks all of the facts  and eval-  yaEGtes them carefully in the light of his appreciation that "com-  SKnration means wise use" ��    ���.  Reduced to its simplest terms, conservation means maintaining a forest in a state of: maximum production  There  are  two  basic  attitudes  towards   forest  utilization,  cms. destructive, the other productive. The former regards the  iSaaest as a" mine to be worked out and abandoned. The latter  sees it as a tree farm, yielding annual crops and under proper  ^administration, capable of renewing itself in perpetuity.  To leave a mature forest untouched would be as stupid and  sitortsighted as to leave a field, of ripe corn unharvested. In  ^ijsnserving" a fcrest it is not the intention to protect the mate tree from the axe, but to preserve the forest as a whole  .iann" decimation by fire, insects and disease, as well as from  wasteful logging methods, and to maintain it as a flourishing  SHroductive ,unit.  While most of the aims of the conservationist may only be  ssoiMeved through the co-operation of the forester and the for-  *as& industries, the man-in^the-street can also contribute, partic-  ���ajaarly when, in the role pf motorist, camper, or hiker, he in-7'  ���aades the-woods on holiday bent: For him, the important thing:  l& remember is, that; human carelessness is responsible for far  ttea many forest fires.  When you break camp, be sure your campfire is out. If you  3BBe a smoker, use that ashtray. Never forget that a carelessly  a��fecarded cigarette can be as destructive as an A-bomb when  -woods are tinder dry.  trst eiec  Who had  the first     power  plant     along    the     Sunshine  , Coast? When was it in operation?  These are interesting ques?  tions and in view of the  change-over from the B.C.  Power Commission toy the B.C.  Electric the .Coast News has  done some digging arid hereyis  what was discovered.  Private enterprise made several steps to provide power in  this area, beginning with Jim  Drummond sr., who <xwned  the first power plant, a Delco,  in 1927. In 1931, Mr. Drummond installed an automatic  cooler in the store, with Jim  Swan sr., doing the job. He  was the areas only electrician.  Between 1930 and 193)6,  Jim Swan and Ted Winegarden  surveyed and measured the  various streams on the Peninsula as potential power sources.  They put in the first Pelton  Wheel at Port Mellon during  this period. *  The Columbia Power Company came in 1938, and Mr.  Drummond has a copy of the  first contract drawn up between himself and that company in 1938. dated January.  Power came from a Diesel  plant just outside Sechelt, and  from a hydro installation on  Mission Creek.  This company served the  area from Gibsons to Selma  Park, and had about 50 customers.  .   The  British Columbia Power Commission took over from  the Columbia Power Company  in  1945,  with Bob, Cooke  as  the     resident    engineer.     He  came to the Commission from  the Canadian Navy. Jack Newman  was   the  electrician   for  the whole area until his death.  Several  people   were   interested,  either commercially or  privately   in: ������ power    development. At one time, Dick Cooper, had the. right of way leased  from Gibsons for- a    private  power  soyurce  from   a   Pelton  Civil defence public issue  The federal government's  jget in civil defence iri main-  Sjfc- tt* co-ordinate provincial  ^afens with the over-all plan of  tfise country. It must provide  aSssection, assistance, training.  y-S&A, as Health Minister Paul  "Jfertin has said, "civil defence  tasnnot  be  imposed   from  the  Under Canada's constitutional setup, the job of crgan-  gmaig the civilian population so  ?&al it can protect itself in  ��e��ent of a disaster, falls to  (2BH& level of government, fed-  asal,   provincial,   municipal.  The federal government  *r��cognized the need of civil  . $yfence in Canada as far back  33S 1948 when it appointed F.  IE; Worthington as federal civil! defence co-ordinator. At  tSei time civil defence came  sassier the jurisdiction of the  gfepartment of National De-  &mce. It was switched, to the  ^Department of Health and  ISFelfare, with Mr. Martin as  tSte responsible cabinet min-  Tsste:,   in  1951.  It was agreed that the feder-  ���M government would operate  �� central training school for  oivil defence specialists. The  '32snadian Civil Defence Col-  ���fege was established at Arn-  apior, Ont., 40 miles north-  Tsrsst of Ottawa. More than  ^tjOOO persons have been train-  asS by the federal civil defence  6Kganizatiqn so far and Canada  a��?w has 72,000 fultime CD.  workers ; including firemen,  ^satieemen, etc:, where riormal  32&S fulfill a CD. function and  3331,000 volunteers.  Courses are held at the col-  iifeige continuously except for  3&e month of August when it.  =xfcses for vacation. Its staff of  ssfeout 20, has given courses to  tscrliee chiefs, fire chiefs, doc-  tcrcs, industrial personnel and  many other groups from  across Canada.  Through the Health Depart-  7ment's information services  Sfee federal CD. organization  .-also has carried on an intensive educational campaign to  acquaint Canadians with the  importance and function of  sivil defence.  The  federal   government  is  responsible    for    co-operation  with United States CD. planners   and establishment of  , a  warning   system  to    tip    the  country of any possible enemy  attack. It is stockpiling medical supplies at strategic points  across Canada. It has provided  essential CD. equipment, training manuals and publications.  It agreed: to carry. out    research, on civil defence through  government reseach  establishments and to help the provinces  by   paying  one-third    the  cost  to   standardize  fire  hose  couplings.     Ontario,     Alberta  and British Columbia are the  only Provinces so far tov take  advantage    of    this    arrangement which makes it possible  for the  fire  equipment   from  one  town to be used  in' any  other town in the province.'  These are the chief functions of the federal CD. organization in peacetime. It would  also:  Co-ordinate interpnoMinciai  movement of aid to provinces  and municipalities and distribute the federal stockpile of  supplies.  Participate in decisions concerning emergency restoration  of communications, transportation and other essential  functions.  But in the words of Mr. Martin again.  "Senior governments can offer guidance, planning and financial assistance, but the successful prosecution of a civil  defence program depends, in  the last analysis, on the parti- -  cipation of individual citizens  and on community leadership."  wheel on a creek in the; Indi  an Reserve, which  served his  home and work.  Mr.   Bart h.o-1 o m e w,/ an  electrical engineer from/Vancouver surveyed all the pow-'  er sources from Langdon Creek  Creek to  Mission   Creek during the early 30's. Leith Murray of Columbia Pciwer often  came to the area. Mr. Drummond  recalls  sitting    in    the  home of the resident manager  for Columbia Power, the night  war   was  declared in   1939. ���  While this struggle for more  power was being carried cm  in the lower part of Sechelt  Peninsula,    private    power  plants were being installed in  Sechelt, whefei ���- the Union  Steamships had its -own plant,  and several small y private  plants were bought. Pender  Harbour people were becoming power conscious, totalling  power plants of  their own.  But this year, 1956, the  greater part of the Sechelt  Peninsula, has been serviced  with power, from Port Mellon,  to Pender Harbour and beyond. Many small branch lines  have been added with extensions in the woods and up the  mountain in all directions.  Mr. Cooke of the commission left the area and was succeeded by S.B. Howlett in  January, 1954, who. was manager from then up to April  30 of this year.  The B.C. Power Commission took over existing power  plants in this area on Sept. 1,  1945. At that time there were  337 users of power along the  coast. They got along with the  existing and additional power  sources until May, ^ 13, 1952  when power from Clowhom  was supplied.  The Clowhom project com-  ��� menced in September, 1950  and owing to delivery of equipment falling behind schedule  it was not until November 19- '  51 heavy equipment was unloaded. It was placed in position during December.  The initial stage of the development consisted of two  hydro - electric units each  of 1,500 kw capacity. The  transmission liije 22 miles  long was constructed across  mountainous arid heavily forested terrain and a sub-station  was built at Sechelt.  The  transmission  line from  Clowhom was placed in oper-  ation on May 13, 1952 and this  resulted in the closing down of  the Sechelt generating station  which the commission had tak-   i  en over frorn the Union Steam-   '  ship Lines and improved. During the year the sub-station at  Gibsons was increased in capacity from  112kva to 450 kva  and  the distribution   transfer-   ���  mer capacity increased byx223  kva.  Six miles. of primary    and   .  secondary poWer    lines    were  added to  the  system  in  1952    ���  and  there  were   133  services  /  added also  12    street    lights.    '  This was  the start  of  expan-   ���:  sion by the B.C. Power Commission  system in    the    area    ,  from Gibsons   to  Sechelt and;  beyond.     Greater     expansion  came in later years.  Incorporating the Sechelt.  sytem into the commission  system also brought with it an  extension of the radio-telephone system to include Clow-  home and Sechelt stations.

INWARDNESS OF RELIGION  Ihe monk Savonarola, who  lived in Florence during the  13 th century, was one of the  most fearless preachers of  righteousness who ever lived,  in a corrupt age he condemned  the evils of his day and spax*ed  none, not even the leaders of  the church. He did one thing  which was amusing, had he  not been so desperately in earnest.   '-  He urged the people of Florence to bring their mirrors into the marketplace so that they  might be destroyed. He.regarded vanity as one of tlie prevailing sins of his day and he  believed that if people could  no longer see themselves reflected in- looking - glasses,  their vanity would fade away.  *     *     *  It is a testimony to his good  influence that the people obeyed and" in a public square the  mirrors  were  piled  high  and  then    destroyed.    History    records that in    a    short    time  there  were   as   many  mirrors  in Florence as there ever had  been, only the styles were different. Vanity was still in the  people's hearts. It is a perfect  illustration  of what has gone  on for ages; we destroy effects,  not causes  and evils . change  but  only   in  outward   appearances. True religion is inward.  This  was the    message     of  Jesus, that religion dealt with  inward motives and his severest  criticisms   were   aimed   at  complacent    religious    people  who imagined that if they observed  the laws  and    regulations of thier creeds all would  be well. Religion, Jesus insisted, was a matter of motive, an  inner spiritual    concern    and  .God Tooked not on the outward  appearances but on the heart.  When a youth was given a  stiff sentence for breaking into a store and getting.only 15  cents    his    defending    lawyer  protested that a jail term was  Tee time  The first hole-in-one on the  Main-Port golf course at Gibsons was played by Mrs. L.  Summers of Gibsons which  was als0 her first hole-in-one.  Later in the afternoon,  young Ltfrry Petersen sunk  one also. .  The course was .at its best,  and. players from North Vancouver^ and Sechelt were out  with those from Gibsons, and  TForfc yMelloh, enjoying-yrthe'  course ^and the play.  ^Because it was , the �� first  such ajcccniplishment in general play, pictures' were taken  of Mrs:, Summers to mark the  event; ���'"*'  cruel and unjust: "Sixty  days in jail for stealing 15  cents is monstrous," he declared. The,, judge replied: "I  am sending him to jail for  stealing; not for the amount  he secured." It wasn't the  thiefs intention to stael a few  cents no doubt he was bittely  disappointed.  *      *      ���  There is a strong note of encouragement in the knowledge  that God locks deeper than  the surface. He sees all the  good which never finds expression; all the longing, learning  and striving. He knows the  people who mean well but  fail through ignorance or  weakness. The world is full of  people who fail over and over  again. But the only real failure is to give up. trying.  Jesus treated some people  of his day with amazing toleration and understanding. He  forgave the woman taken in  adultery he made allowances  for Peter's weakness and profanity in the courtyard. He did  net condone their conduct but  he did know that they were  really much better than their  behavior indicated.    ,  One day Jesus stood by the  treasury in the temple and  watched men and women as  they 'brought their . offerings.  He saw men who cast in out  of their abundance, and knew  how to measure such gifts.  He saw a poor widow  cast in'twc mites, and knowing  that even so small an amount  involved great sacrifice, He  spoke in glowing terms of her  gift. His was the religion of  inwardness - of motives - and  He knew that the woman had  it in her heart to give much  that circumstances made impossible. ������". ���������-'  * * * ���  '  David had it in his heart to  build a temple for God. Doubtless it was the deepest desire  and greatest longing of his  heart. He was forbidden to  erect it, and that must have .  been a crushing disappointment. The sins of former years  rose up against him and robbed him'"of. that great honor.  But the story does not .end  there. His desire to build the  temple was recognized and  commended and God, through  the yprophet, * said to him,  "Whereas it was in thine  heart .... thou didst well".

Laidlaw Sechelt, on May  6, "a son," Michael "John, 8 lbs  11-oz.. at St Mary's hospital. Long range weather forecasts indicate a season of high  fire hazard on the Pacific  Coast  this Summer.  Launching its annual drive,  against forest fires with the  celebration of Forest Conservation Week, May 19th-26th��  the Canadian Forestry Association announces the most intensive fire prevention campaign in   its 31-year  history.  A nation-wide event. "Forest  Conservation Week" is designed to focus the attention of  all Canadians on the Dominion's most important natural  resource - the forests and all  that they stand for in economic security, recreational advantages and wildlife habitat.  Each is an essential element  in our way of life and each  contributes its share to the  national well-being. In the  final analysis, however, all  benefits are contigent upon  the survival of the forest itself and in forest protection the  most vital concern at this season is fire prevention.  "No matter how highly we  may be geared to combat fire  in the forest, our efforts will  be wasted, without the fullest  co-dperation   of    the    general  public, and    particularly    the  travelling   public",   said  President B.B.     Gattie,    "Though  conditions have improved over  the years, statistics    for    the  lastytire season of record shows .  that    careless    campers     and  smokers   are   still   responsible  for approximately two out of  every five fires in British Co-  Roberts Creek  BY MRS. M. NEWMAN  The local beys lost 10-9 in  a baseball game played at  Gibsons Monday.  OES members met   at    the  home of Mrs. E.J. Shaw  last  Thursday   to   work  on cancer  dressings  and made    a    good  showing for  the evening's labor.  Sheets  donated  by  good  friends were greeted with enthusiasm.  Two     workers    set  about the  business  of ripping  them  to  the  desired  sizes for  dressings   fcr   one   woman   to  turn hems, and for bed pads to  be pieced together by another  worker.  Still   another    ripped  and  cut flannelette  and     cotton garments to be used    for  pads,    while    another     made  good use   of the sewing    machine.  The  assembly  line  did  not pause  until a latish hour  when the hostess served tea.  Charlies Bourn, /although  still confined to his bed in St.  Mary's Hospital, is making  satisfactory progress, end is  grateful for the cards and  notes he has received.  Mrs. Munn is in St. Vincent's hospital" for a check-up  and hopes to be back this week.  So anxious to have everything ship-shape for her brother Donald's-return from hospital was Miss May Walker, that,  in her haste she slipped and  fells dislocating a finger. Now  Donald is home and she is  wearing splints. On-May 10th  Miss Walker celebrated her  80th ; birthday ��� and was entertained at the home of Rev. and  Mrs. C- Harbord. A number of  friends were present .to'accord  her  felicitations.' :''  Everybody -is going to the  Community -Hall . on May 19  when the Gibsons G Sharps  will make their, debut at Roberts Creek. It promised to be a  fine dance with many weekenders present from the city:  Apropos  of Mother's    Day,'  one7-.mother, bending over, the  wash- tub of grimy jeans, -and -..  glancing at the bouquet of. wilted! .bleeding hearts and dandelions gracing the kitchen table,- ;  was heard -to murmer, .'JWell, .

So frightened was  she that she returned With considerable speed to her home  to get out her car to travel  the 600 feet distance between  the. two houses.  lumbia. While the public is  unquestionably more fire conscious today, the fact remains." Mr, Gattie added,  "that hazard conditions are becoming increasingly severe  with the rapid growth of tourist traffic and the opening up  of many new forest areas to  the public.  "Another important hazard  factor," he pointed out, "is the  steadily increasing acreage of  second growth timber, which  is much more susceptible to  fire than our old growth  stands. There are many reasons why second growth is  more vulnerable than old  growth. The old established  forest enjoys numerous advantages oyer younger timber,  among which are usually higher humidity and less hazardous undergrowth oh the forest floor. Also the thicker  bark of the mature trees affords protection against flash  burns. Fire danger in second  growth is always high because  the more open-stands dry faster in hot or windy weather and  the young trees themselves  have far less resistance to  flames."  "I am most happy and sincere in urging people of British Columbia to give > year-  round support to the work of  the Canadian Forestry Association," said Hon. R.G. Williston, minister of lands, in a  special Foreskt Conservation  Week message.  The most challenging responsibility of those charged  with the administration of our  great natural resources is the  task of keeping our people informed, the minister declared.  To tell the story, tlie resources  story, so that all have a clear,  factual understanding of the  "new look"; in utilization and  the reason for it - the vast demands being made on our raw  materials ,the plans to* perpetuate those resources through  able management - to tell.that  story is to unfold a dramatic  and vital struggle affecting  every living person in the  land.  British Columbia is the forest province of a forest nation.  Our dependence upon our forest resource to sustain our  economy is pretty well absolute. One-half of every dollar  earned in B.C. originates in  the forest. The forests employ  more people - 60*000 of them -  than any other single resource  in the province. The' average  wage scale in B.C. forest ^industries is the highest in Canada. The Value of forest products  in B.C.    has    averaged  87.;; Coast News May 1^71956  well; over    $500,000,000    each  year for the past five, ye'arsy  But what :<of the other values in our  wonderfUl yprovih--���-  cial park lands, the riversand  streams, the leaping trout and  the thrill of big game?. These  things too, are of tremendous  value to us and to those who  follow lis. And from a monetary standpoint    our    reacrea-  tionai resources -"based on the  forests -    bring    millions    of  tourist dollars to British    Columbia each year.  It is because of all these factors, with their vital effect ori  our welfare today and tomorrow, that the job of informing tne public o* its responsibility towards these, resources  is too tremendously important.  "Few organizations". Mr.  Williston concluded;--.'

Admission is free  and the public is invited.  This film throws into sharp  contrast the conflicting elements of life in British East  Africa. They are pictured as  in a state of consternation  over the deepening inroads of  Mau-Mau violence, even in  Nairobi itself.  The , Mau-Mou themselves  are shown in a sympathetic  light, which, however, in no  way condons their barbarities.  In; scenes dominated by the  smooth-touged Mau-Mau chie^yl  Jomo Kenyattay it is easy to  understand; how the untaught  and discontented Africans  would foe captivated by promises of land and freedom from  foreign domination.  Viewers of "African Conflict" will be astounded at the  attitude of the loyal Christian  Kikuyu, as revealed in this  documentary film. Even the  British Secretary of Foreign  Affairs, Mr. Winters, is quoted  as  having   condem <���  as having commended the loyalty of these natives, even  though their refusal to cooperate with the Mau-Mau or to  take their blasphemous oaths,  has often caused their martyrdom.

Men like Bick Laws of the  Vancouver Mounties can do  away with secretaries, general  managers and public relations  men and use the advice of the  Sun sports department.  Men like sports editor Earl  Smith, who- allowed his sports  writer George Dobie to make  a private argument public,  could be more detrimental to  sports than they are good.  Since when does the Vancouver Sun's sports page speak  for the people of the city and  how can Mr. Smith say that  WE didn't want an American  to move baseball into Vancouver but decided to go along  with him because it was the  only way to get PCL baseball.  He wasn't speaking fcr me  and" I'm sure he wasn't speaking for a lot of baseball fans.  To a .club owner like Mr.  Laws whose team was wallowing in the league cellar  who had been promised Sunday baseball and didnt get it  and who may be in some sort'  of financial trouble vainly  looking for better talent, it  must have been the perfect end  to have a comparatively unknown sports ��� writer wake  him up at 1 a.m. and ask simple questions just to further  his own ends.
