As a result, most families  will pay less for energy than  heretofore.  . Monthly rates now in effect  in the Peninsula are as follows:  5 cents per k.w.h. for the  first 60 JfeyW.li.  2M> cents per k.wr.h. for the  next 200 k.w.h.

A bill totaling $15 under Power Commission rates would be around  $10 under B.C. Electric rates).

Householders will now. pay  a monthly minimum of 50  cents. ;  Approximately 1,500 customers are affected by the change  in rates. They live chiefly in  the communities of Gibson's  Landing, Wilson Creek Roberts Creek, Selma Park, Sechelt, Half Moon Bay, Kliendale, Pender Harbour, porpoise Bay and Secret Cove.  ,  Officials said negotiations  are also going.on to serve Port  Mellon and Woodfibre, on the  West Coast of Howe Sound,  with B.C. Electric power. If  agreement is reached, the company will begin service to  these two areas in October,  when the 101-mile high-tension line to Powell River is  completed.  Construction of the. 138,00-  volt circuit is now going ahead-  at full speed.  . BCE offices have been opened at Sechelt, and poles, wire  and line' equipment have been,  moved into the region with a  view to rehabilitating and expanding thie present distribution system.

Giwth of Southern British  Columbia, which has outpaced the rest of Canada for the  past 10 years, faces rapid acceleration during the next  quarter century.  And that means demand for  electricity will zoom to keep  the wheels of industry whirling and home lights and appliances in service.  B.C. Electric has maintained a full-pace lead with its  supply of power in the expansion race to date and to ensure this position is maintained the company's planners  have projected their thinking  ahead to 1980:    "  Recently in a speech at the  annual meeting of the company's shareholders, Dal Grauer, BCE president and a leading Canadian economist, grappled with the problem.  "Nowhere," ' he told the  shareholders, " are the proportions of the current expansion  in B.C. better shown than in  the capital program of the B.  C. Electric because of the necessity of our anticipating  growth requirements of ���the  areas we  serve."  He predicted these areas on  the Lower Mainland and,  Southern Vancouver Island  will require 6,000,000 horsepower of additional generating capacity by 1980 at a total capital cost of about $2,500,-  O00.,000,  Mr. Grauer pointed out that  B.C. Electric sold 15.9 per  cent more kilowatt hours, exclusive of export, in 1955  than during: the previous year.  "If we round this figure off  at. 15 percent and project it  for five years, we shall need  to add 838,000 h.p. more generating capacity to our system by 1960," he reasoned.  "And this will more than  double our'system genrating  capacity at the end of 1955.  He addedr "A ten years' projection at 15 percent load  growth requires 2,300,000 h.p.  more by 1965 than today.  "Taking the 25-year period  that the Royal Commission on  Canada's Economic Prospects  is being, asked to look ahead  , and projecting our generating requirements ori a7 15 percent load growth for the next  five years, 10 percent for the-  next five years and 8 percent  for the remaining 15 years, we  get an additional generating  requirement by 1880 of 5,850,-  000 h.p.  "If one applies an arbitrary but not unrealistic cost  figure bf $400 per horsepower  mission and distribution expen-  to .cover generation, trans-  ses," he continued, "one arrives at a total capital cost  figure, of about $2,500,000,000  for electrical expansion ori our  system to 1980"  "The size of the growth that  B.C. is experiencing and that  lies ahead," lie said, "is convincing refutation of the small,  doctrinaire minority that woulS  leave no place for private enterprise in the public utility-  field and would . throw ih&  whole burden of these massive  requirements on the shoulders  of the province".  Free tennis  for children  School children may * play  tennis on the Gibsons courts  free of charge, the Tennis club  has announced: An annual  membership fee of $6 is charged adult players.  When members are waiting  to play on the courts, the free  players are expected to stand  aside. Even with this arrangement, the children should get  in a lot of tennis this year.  o nas  125  Ticket 125, a door prize is  unclaimed.

Power Commission employees to keep supplied with power, the area from Gibsons and beyond; to the northwestern end,  is beyond the scope-of The Coast News which can only make a  stab at the whole^ picture, and hope to come up with words of  praise for those individuals.  The job was no sinecure and conditions which kept sensible  people in their homes were faced by them, probably with a  good hearty grumble, but nevertheless faced and power services cut off through some storm stress or other breakdowns, were  repaired so that customers could have light, heat and power.  To all those employees of the Power Commission, who  through the years, took the bouquets, few maybe, and brickbats, probably plenty, in their Stride, The Coast News, on behalf of the population involved offers thanks for a job done as  well as anyone could have done it under existing circumstances. '       .  Some of those employees will be remaining with the B.C.  Electric, the company which took over May 1. They may find  the transition from a government-owned utility to a private enterprise, a new experience but on the other hand the full impact of the take-over will not be felt until the new BCE transmission line is completed and the power turned on. Then events  might get back ito something like normal.  The B.C. Power Commission is leaving the district with an  accomplishment under its belt. It started the Sechelt system  with 337 consumers and on April 30 when it closed its books  there were slightly more than 2,000 customers, quite a few of  them having been added during the last couple of years.  The Coast News is offering no loud praise for the BCE company on its entrance into the district. It is a privately owned  company and can be just as lenient or as hard-boiled as any  other private enterprise, One can of course view the future of  BCE and power- in this area with a wider outlook than one  could accord the Power Commission.  That long line from Squamish to Powell River, must be revenue producing. To start with there are two large pulp mills,  one at Port Mellon and the other at Powell River. There will  also be in time other developments between those two. So, to  lake a definite stand towards the entry of BCE into the Sunshine Coast area, welcome -- and don't have breakdowns on  Wednesdays. The Power Commission was decent about it and'  we expect BCE will be too, because that's the day we print The  Coast News.  :  CLEARLY  INFORMED  CBU  MONDAY  May  14th  10:15pm.  i  The Honourable  Wesly D.

Rambouillets and Rambouillet  crosses are most popular. Suf-  folks are favored among farm-  flock operators. Suffolk cros-fl  ses are popular in the market-  lamb trade. Bulk of the annual wool-clip is marketed  through the British Columbia,  Sheep  Breeders' Association.  SWINE IN  B.P.  British Columbia's swine industry is centred largely in  the Lower Mainland, North  Okanagan, and Peace River  areas. Most of the swine population is of the Yorkshire  breed.  Many writers  on UBC staff  From July 1, 1954, to Aug.  31, 1955, 217 members of the  faculty and staff of the University of British Columbia published 369 separate articles,  books and pamphlets.  There has been a' considerable increase in the .-number  writing and the number of  publications, as shown by a  comparison with the 1953-54  figures of 153 faculty members  and staff authors of a total of  290 publications.  Articles published in Canadian and American journals  and papers vary in subject  from 'agricultural economics'  through  to  'zoology'  Many of the- faculty members have several publications  during the year 1954-55 to  their credit. The team of Dr.  Sydney M. Friedman, professor and head of the department  of anatomy, and.his wife, Dr.  Constance L. Friedman, re- ,  search associate professor of  anatomy, both of the Medical  Faculty, UBC, published eight  seuarate articles.,..  The booklet 'Publications of  the Faculty and Staff was published under the direction of  the University Editorial Committee; Miss Anne M. Smith,  assistant librarian, and the  staff of the reference division  of the Library did the basic  work of preparation.  Canada will take its first  national quinquennial census  of population and agriculture  -in 1956. This marks" an important departure from the/  previous practice*of confining  the quinquennial census to the  Prairie Provinces, where they  have been taken in Manitoba  since 1886 and in Saskatchewan and Alberta since 1906.  In recent decades there have  been numerous requests to extend- this five year census to  other provinces. The rapidity  ���with whioh changes have been  taking place in - Canada in the  post-war period and, indeed,  since the 1951 Census, have resulted in more numerous and  urgent requests.  It was not practicable to  take a five-year census on a  national scale in ihe past because of at least two formidr  able obstacles. These were the  length of time required io take  a census and the cost. If it  took from three to five years to  . compile the results of a census  of all Canada, then the,compiling of one would overlap  the preparation for the next  and create serious organizational difficulties.  Th�� 1951 Census, which introduced in. Canada * radical  new procedures in census taking, reduced the time for completing a census, to one-half,  thus removing the difficulty  of timing. This, of course, also  made possible considerable reductions in cost. The 1951  Census cost aproximately $8,-  000,000. If it had beez taken  by the former methods, it  would have cost approximately $2,000,000 more.  *.*.*'���  Further reductions in the cost  of a national quinquennial census could be made by reducing  the number of questions and by  confining it to population and  agriculture; .   that     is,    there  would-be no schedules for distribution, fisheries or housing.  This plan has been adopted foi;  the 1956 Census. In spite    c&  higher price and    wage    and  salary levels  since   1951,   the  1956    national    quinquennial  census  has  been designed   to  cost not more than $5,000,000  as   compared  with   $8,000,000  in  1951. Besides the simplification due to fewer schedules  and questions, the time-saving  procedures used in the    1951  Census will -be given a wider  application. For    example,    a  mark-sense   questionaire.   will  be used in agriculture for. the  first time, as it was for population and housing in 1951.  There will be five ques&ons  in the 1956 Census of Popula-  year census  tion instead of the twenty-nine  asked in 1951. These are-age,  sex, martial status, relation to  head of household and whether living on a farm. Informa-.  tion on the other questions  asked in 1951 has not the  same degree of prgency; in  fact some of the characteristics  of the population such as religion, origin, education, and citizenship change "only Slowly  and an enumeration  of  them  once in ten years is adequate.  ' *      * ' .-.*   ��� ��� . < v' XX ���  The agriculture questionnaire will have seventy-six  questions as against approximately two hundred ih 1951.  After consultation with federal and provincial agriculturalists and interested organizations, it was decided that an-'  swers to 'these seventy-six  questions would furnish essential bench-marks and other basic materials appropriate for  a quinquennial census of agriculture. It is .intended to supplement tlh/is quesjjaonaire  somewhat later by a sample  survey ��� conducted by specially  trained enumerators to secure information on such items  as farm expenses and income  from   non-farm  operations.  *     *     *  It is expected that the 1956  count of Canada's population,  will be around 16 million, an  increase of approximately 2  million over 1951, which is  14 percent in ' the five-year  period. If this rate should be  maintained until 1961, it would  be greater than the high rate  of increase in the 1941-51 decade, which, excluding Newfoundland, was 18.6 percent  (with Newfoundland it was  21.7 percent). A 28 percent  rate of increase in a decade  was exceeded only in the period 1901-11, when it was 34.17  percent. However, that was the  period when Canada experienced its heatfy flow of immigration due to the ��� settlement of tiie Prairies.  *   .   *      *  Accompanying this rapid increase there have been consid-  erable movements of peopie between and- within provinces.  There has been something in  the nature of an exodus to the  outskirts of cities, which has  expanded greatly the metropolitan areas. This movement  has gone beyond the limits of  cities and metropolitan' areas  and has also changed the character of purely ruia? areas to  a combination of rural and urban, i    x  Such movements as these  create heavs^ demands on municipal and provincial governments for all manner of services -  roads,    schools    water  works, * fire protection, etc.  Provincial governments have  given help to municipalities in  various forms, such as unconditional grants, allocation of  sales taxes, and so ori. Many^ of  these forms of assistance are  on a per capita basis and there  has risen an urgent demand  for more frequent information  on population growth, so that  the needs-of local areas can  be appraised.   v.  1 ' Not only is this information  necessary: to assist iri meeting  current problems, but ilie prospect of continued 7 growth requires^ a forecast of future  needs for some years ahead.  There must be planning not  only for physical properties,  such as schools and hospitals,  but also for the staff required  to maintain them. The    qu!n-  7'quennial census of population will be a great aid to  those engaged in planning and  forecasting, because it cuts the  interval b e.'t ween starting  points in half.  *     *     *  ,    Annual estimates of population ,for Canada and the prov-  , inces will be more accurate  with a quinquennial census.  It is difficult intercensally to  make adequate allowances for  inter-prbvincial migration and  emigration from Canada.  This census will also add  greatly to the usefulness of vital and health statistics. These  are dependant upon population  data for their proper interpretation. Since the units of  measurement are mostly persons or events occurring to  persons, practically all the  rates are used to depict births,  marriages, deaths, illness, life  expectancy, fertillity, hospital admissions, and so on, are  computed on denominators of  population numbers, sw.o, age  sex and martial status. Indeed;  the absolute figures mean little except in relation to population.

'    1  I    Telephone i_    i  Announcements  THE ���tmsl Neius  British Columbia's war veterans, including those of the  Korean conflict, can become  "do it yourself" fans in a major way through the Home  construction Assistance plan,  technically known as Part II  of the Veterans' Land Act.  Prom the boys who thought  -they, couldn't even drive a  nail to those with a good working knowledge of construction,  they're pushing up homes in  many parts of the province  and saving themselves considerable money in the process.,  Those without adequate construction experience are given a construction training  course under V.L.A. supervision. More than 500 B.C^ veterans have shown interest in  tlie plan and more than 80  have already started work on  their new homes, some 75 percent of these have been Or are  ��� taking 10 week training courses.  The "schooling" is not time-  exacting or tedious. It consists of two-hour classes, two  nights a week. Three schools  are operating in Victoria and  Vernon, two in Burnaby and  one each in Trail, Nelson, Duncan and Nanaimo. Organization for schools is now being  completed in the Fraser, Val^  ley.  Chief requirement is ownership of a lot meeting N.H.A.  standards. Veterans, however,  should not commit themselves  to the purchase of a lot until,  it has been formally approved  by the V.L.A. When submitting the lot for purchase the  veteran must deposit $800 or  Tthe, asking price, whichever is  the greater. If the veteran  owns a lot valued by the V.L.  A. at $800 or more the authorities will take title in lieu of  cash and if valued at less  than $800 the'veteran pays  the balance to that figure in  cash. Approved building plans  are also available free.  Following   approval   of  site  and plans, the veteran applies  for a  building loan and    the  "dd it yourself" project really X  gets, under way. Th'ere is continuing inspection  and   advice  by the V.L.A.  which    makes  progress payments as required.  ���On completion of the dwelling the title  to the property  is conveyed  to ���   the    veteran  and his wife subject to an N.  H.A. mortgage repayable over  257 years with interest at 5Vz  percent yearly.  "We're anxious to hear from  every veteran who wants to  build iii's own home and save  money in the process" states  W.H. Ozard, district superintendent of the Veterans' Land  Act for B.C.

CHAIN SAW"  SUB - AGENT  Ray dusenbury, Pender Harbour A survey conducted by the  Dominion Bureau of Statistics  in five metropolitan areas  across Canada indicates* families with two to six persons  in the nation's larger cities  spent an average of $1,400 per  person in 1953.  The bureau collected records  of expenditure from 969 families in Halifax Montreal, Tor-  ' onto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. These families averaged  3.11 persons and their incomes ranged from $1,800 to  $6,500 a year. The pattern of  expenditure for all 969 famities is summarized as follows:  Of; the average dollar spent,  27.3 cents went for food. Housing, fuel, light and water tooE  15.6 cents. For some families  this meant rented/apartments,  heatedand lighted by the  landlord; for others, it meant  payment of property taxes, insurance, mortgage interest,  repairs on a house and expenses for heat, light and water.  Household operation expenses,  for such items as    the    tele-  , phone, cleaning supplies, laundry sent out<and baby sitters,  took  3.6    cents.     Furnishtings  Catholics seek  fi  inancia  I help  The largest and most intensive Catholic drive for funds  in the history of British Columbia will be .launched soon with  a total objective of $l,700,000y  Announcement of the drive,  to be known as the University-  College and Welfare Appeal  has been made by the most  Rev. W.M. Duke, Archbishop  of Vancouver and his coadjutor archbishop, Martin M.  Johnson.  Catholic welfare needs will  be one of the major beneficiaries of the contemplated  campaign. This will include  provision for. Catholic institutions rendering many and  varied services to the communities throughout the > area, regardless of race color and  creed. Among, these will be.  the housing facilities for senior 7 citizens, 7 accomodations for  the aged and infirm, facilities  for the rehabilitaton of prison  ���discharges, adequately fitted  Sailors' Clubs, building of hostels and a general expansion  of all other welfare and charitable activities now being operated by the Catholic Church.  Scholarship  for blind  A university scholarship foiv  blind students has been ap-7  proved by the Western Division Canadian National Institute of the Blind, chairman C.  ,W. 'Jaggs announced today.  Named ��� in honour of Dr.  Donald Buckland,.Professor of  Forest Pathology at the University of British Columbia,  who was himself blind, the  scholarship, to be put into effect this year, allows $1,000  annually to aid blind students with their university education. Dr. Buckland died in  February, a  )l A NEW WORRY  The legal problems likely to  arise with the development of  space ships -have prompted the  International Civil Aviation  Organization, a specialized  agency of the United Nations,  to raise the question in a report to be considered at its  forthcoming Assembly, scheduled to be held in Caracas in  June.  The report points out that  present legal regulations give  each nation complete and exclusive control of the airspace  over its territory. There exist  no rules, however, relating to  outer space and it is suggested  that the time has come to consider formulating them.  B.C. BULBS  About 500 acres devoted to  bulbs have an annual crop of  over $600 per acre, mainly in  the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. At the present  time 2,000 green houses have  over 100 acres under glass.  .T- Wash old powder puffs and  keep them with your cleaning  equipment to use in applying  . wax polish to furniture  and equipment accounted for  6.2 cents, and included furniture, floor coverings, electrical household equipment, s kitchen equipment, glassware,  china, silverware, household  textiles and items ranging  from light bulbs to lawn mowers.  Clothing for these families  required 9,5 cents of the average dollar spent, or a total of  $413 per family. The family  spent $24 for girls' clothing, -  $199 for women's clothing,  $25 for boys' clothing, $134  for men's clothing, $12 for  children's clothing and $18  for materials.  About 52 percent of the families reported no automobile  expense. However, when all  the families were considered  together, car purchase, operation and maintenance accounted for 7.8 cents of the average  dollar expenditure. AH other  transportation took another  2.2 cents.  Medical care averaged 4.3  cents. Fifty-seven percent of  the families reported expenses for dental care, 61 percent  reported visits to their doctor,  andi 11 percent reported' operation expenses. Other medical  expenditure items covered  were payments to medical and  hospital plans, hospital and  nursing care, drugs and medicines, eyeglasses and medical  appliances.  Another 1.9 cents went, for  personal care. The largest item  was haircuts, but other services, toilet articles and preparations claimed a share. Ex-,  penditure for recreation took  3.6 cents, or a total of $157  per family. Admissions to  movies amounted to $28, and  purchase of television sets or  combination television and  and radio sets averaged $65.  Reading and education took  1.1 cents: tobacco and alcoholic beverages, 3.5 cents; and a  miscellaneous   group  of other  current living expenses accounted'for 1,1 cents. This last  group of expenses covered  bank charges, funeral expenses  and vocational expenses such  a^ union dues.       7  v  Other expenditures for these  families were gifts and contributions taking 2.3 cents of the  average dollar spent; personal  taxes, 5.8 cents* and security  payments^ 4,2. cents.

We  Stock the  TOP  MODELS of  KEEP  YOUR WORD  One of the best known writers in the United States is  Carl Sandberg, now 81 years of  age. His looks are well-known  and his put-spoken .comments  on life are straightforward  and his views are respected.  Eecently he spent a week in  Washington, attended several  M&eefcings of Congress and  shrewdly observed the men  in Congress and Senate. .He  was urged- to give his impressions, as an old and valued  friend of his country.  Mr. Sandberg was not bitter as sometimes old people  become. In his early days he  knew poverty and speni some  time in prison as a result of  his strong opinions. He has  mellowed with the years and  bis criticism could! be called  kindly. He said that the members of Congress and Senate  were, in the main, sincere -  but. one criticism he did broadcast: he thought they did not  have a sense of responsibility,  they made promises they knew  they could not fulfill.  *  * * .  No dttubt the same could be  said of public:'men in our own  land; it is a temptation which  besets men who seek public  office. This is ijgpt written unr  iandQy for our statesmen are  higfaminded men but to carry  a sense of deep responsibility  is a difficult and noteworthy  achievement.  Some years ago, in a book  jtcr young people, I told this  story. The missionary David  lii^ringstone arrived1 in Africa  early in 1841, and after more  than twelve years of daring  adventure and devoted service  in the heart of that vast continent he decided to visit the  West Coast and maybe return  to England for a visit. He  would need some boys (the  same given to natives by their  chief) to help him on the peri-  lows journey of more than  Ij.OS'O .   miles    through ��� dense  Jungle.  . *      *      *  Seteele'tu, the chief, gathered' his men together and con-  sotted them. Many feared that  Livingstone and his twenty-  seven helpers would not survive;, the journey, and * others  feared that he would sail for  his-, homeland and the "boys"  ���wsmld be left to return alone.  <23ae natives had a great respect for the missionary. They  ItRew he was a .man of his  word, and so when he said:  *1f you give me your sons for  the journey I promise to re-  -rurn with them and deliver  them to -their homes and parents. My life will be as ' a  pledge." They knew he would  keep his word. ; ' "'   ��  Sekeletu and many others  accompanied Livingstone and  ti&e carriers part of the way,  ihen said good-bye, and returned to their village with  some fears. No one had ever  umflertaken such a long 7 and'  tlaugerous journey. Would the  jrcorty ever return?  lite journey Was both diffi-  .tnaifc and dangerous. They were  often hungry and'thirsty,' and  sometimes so 7exhausted that.  tihey could scarcely move for-  ���wartL Swollen rivers and steep  hRis confronted them and  sharp thorns in the jungle  stung them. Livingstone suffered much from fever, which  caused him to ache all over,  so that he could not stand up  without help. The carriers also  suffered a good deal;: still they  pressed on for Livings tone's  cheerful spirit and courage  gave them strength.  The changing scenes from  day to day kept all interested.  They saw flowers, birds, and  animals which were new to  them. Sometimes as their canoes sped along strange rivers  they saw crocodiles and reptiles, and ate food they had  never tasted before. Tired and  sleepy as evening came they  landed and made their camp'  for the night and listened to  strange cries from the nearby  jungle. "  *     *     *  ��� ���  Although some   tribes  were  hostile, Livingstone's firmness  and kindness conquered them  and   no   fighting  took    place.  Whenever he had an    opportunity he preached to them and  much   good  resulted.   He  had  a magic lantern,    and    often  showed pictures;    they    were  greatly interested    and   sometimes afraid because it was so  new and strange. At long last  the harbor of,:   Luanda,    was  reached,  ' anda  Livingstone's  "boys" got their first glimpse  of tlie sea. Their astonishment  left them almost,  speechless.  They exclaimed: "All at once  the world said to us.  .'I    am  finished, there iV no more, of  me."  There was a British warship  in the harbour. The commander had been sent to take.the  great missionary back to Bri- .  tain He was both astonished  and disappointed when Livingstone declined to go. He said  "Queen Victoria has urged  you to come and all Britain is  waiting to do you honour. You  must come;"        -  The warship returned . to  Britain without the mission- ,  ary. The officers could not understand his attitu&e. They  *tht>ught he was both foolish  and stubborn. Strange to say  that warship 'struck an uncharted rock and all her crew  perished  Livingstone had given his  solemn pledge that he would  bring all the boys back.again,  and no longing for home  could make him break that  promise. So once again he  and his party began the long  voyage homeward,- which they  reached after an absence of  two and a half years. They received a great welcome, and  Livingstone's "boys" were regarded as heroes. They proudly walked around the village  in clothes bought in Luanda.  To their friends they said:  "We went on till we finished  the whole world. We only  turned back when there was  no, more land."  All this happened nearly  100 years ago, but in that part  of Africa they still refer to  Livingstone as: .. "The Man  who Kept his Word."  *      *      *.

Sunshine  Coast  Lodge No.76  meets Gibson's Legion Hall 2nd and  4th Friday  each month.  New industries and new people - all hungry for" power-  have tripled the Lower Mainland's demands for electricity in the past 10 years.  And B.C. Electric, following bold, far-sighted, expansion ' policies, has spent S3 00,  000,000 to keep hydro generating capacity well ahead of  that requirement.  Within a few years after  World War 11 ended, the company had become one of the  first utility firms in North A-  merica to achieve a, surplus  of power.  New power stations were  built at Bridge River, 130  miles northwest of New Westminister, and at Wahleach  JLake, 80 miles east of the  ���Royal City.  v New high capacity generator replaced old machinery "at  Ruskin, a new generating  plant was added at Lake Bunt-,  zen, and new power stations  went under construction at Seton Creek near Bridge River,  and at Cheakamus River, 25  miles north of Squamish, at  the head of Howe Sound.  But building generating stations is only part of the work  required   to   make   electricity  available at the places where  it's  needed.  New substations, transmission lines and distribution cir-  ciuts also had to be constructed to bring the additional  power ino the Lower Mainland  area and send it into homes,  farms and factories.  Last year B.C. Electric's capital expenditures- totalled $43,-  000,000. This year the company will spend $75,000,000  on expansion, and the trend is  up - not down.  Currently B.C. Electric has  an electric plant capacity of  728,000 h.p. and by 1960 or  1961 (sooner if required) this  figure will have risen to 1,-  440,000 h.p. in a continuing  program to keep ahead of  soaring power needs of the  Lower Mainland and southern  Vancouver Island.  Last year an important new  customer was taken into the  company's service area when  an agreement was signed with.  Powell River Company, largest individual newsprint mill  in the world.  Clearing and grading of  nearly 100 miles of right-of-  way through timber - filled  wilderness and narrow coastline inlets is nearly completed.  And by October 1, the new  line, including one of the  world's longest overhead power lines stretching 10,000 feet  across Jervis Inlet, will be  completed and pouring energy  into Powell River and a num��  ber   of smaller  communities.  By mid-summer this year,,  the $8,000,000 Seton power  project will be producing 58.-  500 h.p. and by fall of 1957  the $2.5,000,000 Cheakamus  project will be adding another  190,000 h.p.
