AH garbage disposal pits in  . the village, and operated by  the village of Sechelt will be  filled immediately at village  expense/owing to the fire hazard, the Village Commission  decided at its recent meeting.  This means there will be.no  public pits for disposal of garbage, and anyone within the  area who has not done so may  contact Robert Rigler, garbage  collector, at 104F for regular  collection.. The fee is $1 per  month for weekly collection,  for householders.  Mr;v W. 33. MacDonald was  appointed provincial sanitary  Inspector, ..replacing B. Williams.

The clerk was requested to  notify the. Board of Trade .that  after study and comparison  with other organized areas, the  , Commissioners concluded that  the fee is fair. The -Board suggested that in the event the  B. of T. decides -to sponsor  such a show, a delegation from  the B. of T. meet with the  Commission to discuss possible  easement, in view of the special circumstances under  which the show is being sponsored.  The clerk was asked, to  write o letter of thanks to Mrs.  E. F. Cooke, f6r~mounting and  framing, at his own expense,  the map of Sechelt which he  had previously presented to.  the board.

It was right next door that  TMrs. G. Wigard was struck by  a truck and injured while  members of the committee  were waiting for other members to arrive.  Dr. McKee was unable to attend fthe meeting owing to  having to attend the victim  of the accident and Dr. Inglis  had to leave early to take care  of patients of Dr. McKee as  well as his own.

Mrs- Wigard had alighted  from the bus after a trip to  town, walked around the front  of it and was struck by a  truck driven, in the same direction by Charles K. Opheim  of Powell River.  According to the RCM7P. at  Sechelt, the truck . was moving slowly, 2i3>out 15 miles an  hour at, the time, and was a  one-ton size. The driver tried  to avoid Mrs- Wigard and finished up headed into a garage  /driveway. Mrs. Wigard was  attended by Dr. McKee of  Selma Park and flown at once  to the Vancouver General  Hospital.

What has happened?  ; ^Organization of a Recreation committee at Sechelt and  ,the naming of the same comihittee to be a Centennial celebration committee causing one to ponder and ask what has  happened to the Gibsons Recreational committee. Not much  has been heard of it for the last year.  It might be significant to point out that at the last regional conference of Recreational committees not so long  ago, Gibshs was conspicuous because of its absence. It did  not have any representation there at all.  . Perhaps some official of the committee might like to  '.state the position of the committee whether it is defunct  ��r otherwise.  Shucks! More garbage  Ye editor doffed his outer garments, put on a bathing"  suit with the idea of having a quick plunge and swim, the  other early evening. Arriving at the float arid ready for the  plunge that refreshes, he found garbage floating nonchalantly by/  It was necessary for him to wait several minutes for  the garbage to get by aided by an incoming tide. It brought  to mind the suggestion made several weeks ago that someone should start a sweepstake on the date when Gibsons  will have a garbage system at work. In the meantime anyone can have a free guess. It will be, we hope, before Sechelt  decides to open lip another garbage dump.  Could be done, maybe  . A visitor, in fact a couple of them, dropped injfco The  Coast News off ice within the week to enquire whether there  was a place they could go to change into bathing suits for  a swim. They were referred to the municipal dock area; in  the hope someone would take pity on: them and give them  a> little privacy so they could change.  This prompts the thought that perhaps Gibsons is becoming sufficiently well-known by day-trippers drops' the  summer who come over to explore arid have a swim as well.  While there are arguments for and against, it would be nice  if there were two or three shelters, or removable tents, established at the municipal dock which could be used by visitors to change into swim suits.  i  '���A  ANNUAL  .

Vegetables  Jellies & Jams  Canned Fruits & Vegetables  ALL ENTRIES IN BEFORE 12 NOON  Open To Peninsula  A  SENSE OF DUTY  A very long time ago the  Prophet Jeremiah compared  himself to a bird which aroused the jealousy of ether birds.  He wrote: "Mine heritage is  unto me as a speckled bird;  the birds round about are a-  gainst her." That is what happens to the gaily-colored bird;  the others envy and attack  her. _" . .,:,  11 have often thought of this  when public men are viciously  attacked. Whatever be the motive behind it, hostility is often aroused and sensitive men  suffer, and it becomes difficult  to persuade sensitive men-to  run for office in poblic affairs-  Not so long ago Mr. Gordon  Grayson M.P., died. I knew  him intimately, and altogether  apart from political - allegiance,  I consider him one of the finest men we have had in.the  political life of this country.  Scores of fine tributes can^e  from men who were not of his  party; by sheer worth -of char-  actor this man won his way  into the confidence and esteem  of men ,who differed, from  him in the views he heldy7p  was a magnificent lesson; in  toleration and goodwill.  ..��     *     *  ��� ��� i-  ��m .-   I.  It caused me to remember  something I once saw in  Westminster Abbey; two monuments standing side by side,  one to William Ewart Gte'd-  stone, and the other to his  political rival, Benjamin Dis-  raelli- After many a bitter  quarrel the two are remembered and esteemed. y  The United States has also  been blessed by many men  ahd women who took their  responsibilities, seriously. .  When Calvin Coolidge was elected president of the United  States': tie wtasat first almost  stunned by the course of events. He had always been shy  and reserved. Evan as a boy he  preferrel to let others do most  bf the talking. Some people did  not care fc*r this and tlie wor,d  ,was passed around that, he w&5  cold and aloof.  When he first called at the  honie of his girl friend- - who  later 'became his wife - - he had  so little to say that it was hard  to get any conversation started  After he had been introduced  to the girl's parents and other  members ofythe family he sat  on one end of the parlour sofa  and while the other people  were talking he never said a  word. It wasn't that he was  dumb; that was the last thing  in. the world that could be  said of him. He was just shy.  self-consious  and  felt  a  little  awkward. ,7  * *  *  He became a lawyer in a  small town ���and lived in a  very simple way. As far as  making money was concered,  he was no go-getter, actually  his income, for the greater  part of his life, was no more  than that of a good mechanic.  He was not socially ambitious  and  for    the    most part his  friends were men who, like  himself, had simple tastes.  When he entered politics no  o^ae e;ver thought that he  would go very far. He was  not easy to know and never  went around patting people  on the backhand getting himself called a jolly fellow.  He did his best and never  seemed to bother about what  people thought of him. He  had none of the flashy qual-  ilities that make men popular.  He had strong views about  right and wrong and he did  the right as God gave him to  see it. Yet this quiet, shy man  became president of the United States. More aggressive and  ambitious .men were passed by  and he was chosen. In the  long run the people can 'be  trusted and most people, at  least mos voters in the United  States, knew that underneath his reserve and apparent  coldness there was a warm and  sympathetic heart. Besides,  they knew he was a man of  high ideals and could be  trusted.  How does a man feel when  he is elected to a posistion as  exalted and responsible as  that of America's presidency?  No two men take it in the  same way but when Calvin  Coolidge was called! to this  important task he did a very  characteristic thing. On the  very morning that he was to  assume the presidency he  visited his mother's grave,  )m.

To be held at the University  Research Camp at Loon Lake,  near Haney. B.C., August 13-  20, the workshop is designed  to j acquaint school teachers  with the basic principles of  forest management and conservation. Although emphasis will  be placed on forests and forestry, consideration will also  be given to the other natural  of water, soil and wildlife.  Since practical demonstrations  are essential to the proper visualization of the conservation  story, field trips will form an  important part of the 7 -xday  program.  Topics will be dealt with  by lecturers drawn from the  top ranks of the Forest Service, the Faculty of Forestry  and the forest industries.  Teachers planning to attend  this unique Workshop should  communicate with the Canadian Forestry Association, 550  Burrard St., Vancouver 1, B.C.  for further details.  When logging began in  British Columbia, there seemed to be no limit to timber resources. Today the forest industries must practice forest  management to ensure con-  tinous production.  "  JOHN J.

The turf joints; between the stones should be a-  ibout one to one and a half  inches wide, and should not in  any case exceed three inches  in width.  Apart from material and  size, the chief point is to remember that a path should  serve some useful purpose. It  should lead somewhere. Often  paths in gardens appear to  lead nowhere. To void the  purposeless appearance of  such a path, it is only necessary to> place a sundial or bird  bath at the extreme end, thus  giving a finish to the feature.  When planning a straight  walk, mark it off with stake  and string. If a curved walk  is7 being planned, use a hose  instead of. stake and string,  for the hose is flexible and  can be moved about until the  desired curve is attained.
