A lively discussion of tlie  road to St. Mary's Hospital in  Garden Bay resulted in a^rnove  to support the 'Pender Harbour  Board of Trade in its efforts to  have the road widened and improved to facilitate tlie movement of patients to the hospital; Support was given to the  Gibsons: Board of trade committee dealing with herd law  problems on the peninsula.  The board is contacting the  Port Mellon's Thunderbird,  published by the Port Mellon.  Community association has received reports, now confirmed,  that the Canadian Forest Products Port Mellon pulp mill  has broken the record of recent  years for safety in British Col-  lmbia pulp mills. 7..--..  The frequency rate for 1956  is 1.69 and going back as far  as 1950 the nearest rate was  1.80 in 1954 at the Elk Falls  plant. Compared with the 1955  rate of 42.00, last year's 1.69  has the whole industry wondering what the Port Mellon employees have done to create*  such a difference in the accident ratio,  Port Mellon A and H teams  won the mill competition for  the year and were honored at  a recent banquet in the cafeteria when each member was presented with a button marking  the event. The A team; scored  8056 points, 1560 more than  their nearest competitor and  the H yard team scored 6579  points, seven points only above  the next team.  At the dinner when Bob Davies, the manager, was chairman, L. Mason, chairman of  the 1957 safety campaign said  that defects in the safety program had been ironed out and  one of the items recognized as.  being of great valtie is the support employees should give*  their tea'm captains. They are  the key men he added and  should get all the support possible.

L  Gibsons district committee has been organized with William McAfee as chairman and Commissioner Ballentine as his  aide. It is now up to every organization in the community to do.  its part towards making the Centennial celebrations memorable.  All organizations have their chance to make the events  k> follow worthwhile but to do this they must have representa**-  Uon on tlie main committee headed by Mr. McAfee. They will  be asked and many have been asked to have two 'delegates appointed to serve on this committee, This appplies to all organizations from the Village Commission down to the smallest or-'  ionization in tlie community.  The populace will be asked by a coupon on the front page  of The Coast News to exrpess a preference for a village or district project for which the committee will set out to raise sufficient funds aided by a government grant. It should be remembered that having an idea and carrying it out are not quite the  same and judging from reports heard already there are many  costly ventures in the minds of some people. This area cannot  afford anything costly so whe marking your coupon ��� remember YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR SOME OF IT  D  m  If there are recommendations for bravery to..be handed  ���nut by any 'organization The Coast News feels sure the populace  would nominate Orrin Watson, Lang Bay tractor driver for such  honor.  What he did Christmas morning when he' dived into the  Sey waters of Ruby Lake to try and rescue three people trapped  mi a submerged auto, was certainly something beyond the line  of duty. It' took more than ordinary courage to continue diving  after having sized up the situation ���three persons trapped in a  small car at least four feet below the surface of the water, with  doors unopened and windows closed. However he had. determination, the kind that keeps this world moving, and he managed  to save one of the three lives after getting put the three trapped  persons.  For this The Coast News is quite ready to add its weight  to any recommendation which might be made. So if anyone desires to send to the proper individuals or organization the story  on the front page of the Jan. 17 paper ��� a story told in .his own-,  words and the words of the RCMP constable who assisted him  ��� and this editorial it might be' of valuable assistance. Mr. Watson is a Powell River district resident and the Sunshine Coast  people hope there are a great many more like him there.  Your help necessary  The following editorial was written by the editor of another weekly newspaper for other members of the Canadian  Weekly Newspaper association, of which the Coast News is a  member.  It is published here to show that the editor of The Coast  News is not griping about late copy just because he has strange  ideas but because it is a "disease" which affects a considerable  mass' of the copy he receives and is supposed to publish ���pronto!  HAVE A HEART!  At this season of the year, we in the newspaper business  liken. ourselves to the dry-cleaner swamped with rush orders  on the Thursday before Easter���or the barber coping with tardy  delinquents on Christmas Eve.  There's no rhyme nor reason to the way people leave their  news till the last minute; and when St. Peter blows his celestial  lrumpt we bet they'll miss the deadline!.  This is the season of resumed activities in a dozen clubs  and groups in every surrounding community. The Watchman is  bappy to be in their confidence���to be informed of their proceedings ��� and to help by reporting their achievements.... But  why is it that mid-week or week-end functions are not reported  until Wednesday of the following week? Why is it that Saturday and Sunday sports are not committed to paper until a  few hours before our deadline?  It is only through the grace of an indulgent editor and a  co-operative staff, that most of these affairs find a place in our  ccfliimns. With correspondence and classified advertising piling  it on Tuesday and Wednesday, mails and telephones loaded to  capacity, and our. typesetting machines operating at a hot pace  ���news of lost Friday's meetings, or weddings over two weeks  old, are unwelcome grist to the mill at this hour of tlie weekly  grind.  Like the dry-eleaner and the town barber, we keep a  year-round staff. No extra shifts to call in before the deadline;  no spare equipment or operators to be pressed into service on  unneedful demands. If you have news for your local paper, or  advertising that clamors for immediate space ���HAVE A HEART  *nd send it in early!  Looking for a prophecy on economic trends? Want to  know whether there's more inflation ahead? Here's a tip hot  off-the pen of the circulation manager of a US magazine, a  -confidentially worded p.s. to one of his recent form letters.

That is,  Gibsons has been a place for,  families to "live", while the  head followed the logging, fishing, construction and other  seasonal work throughout the  province, coming home when  able or when work was; slack.  Local work: has always been  very largely connected with  the timber industry, and that  mostly with the logging end.  Fishing, locally, has .never  been commercially important,  though some few men have at  \times- been able to eke out a  living or partial living. It does  seem that many of the original  settlers, and many of those  coming in later, had some form  of agriculture in mind; they  apparently hoped to get a  tract of land cleared and under  cultiatipn, and to then be able  to live, and support' their families, by the .produce of the  land. Except in some very few  borderline cases these hopes  have not been justified. Of  that, more later.  The logging, however, has  ever been the mainstay economically; that is, the sale of  logs has brought more money  into the district than any other  single from of production, and  there have been more men employed, and more wages paid,  in.logging than in any other  activity. And in that logging  there have been many changes,  changing even in the early  1890's : ;  The first logging was al1-  bull-team, putting out only fi  ' timber, taking only the very  select trees, all felled with the  axe -only, stumps cut "three-  board" high, and trees cut off  well below the first limb. Then  horses began to supplant oxeny  until by 1900 bull-teams' had  become rather rare; the smaller trees were being used, saws  were being used for falling;  and the cedar, besides having  been proved very fine for shingles, was also being used for  lumber. '      < ���      .   ,  LETTERS  toeditor  E.E. WINCH  ��� Editor: The death of that valiant fighter for the less fortunate, Mr. E.E. Winch, member  for Burnaby, stirs some memories in my mind, bf days gone  .past in which he was concerned. Most of those that my, mem-  lory recalls o�� those far-off  days, had -a' dire struggle to  earn the means to live but despite those discouraging days  we now and* again had occasions when we could give vent  to some laughter.  Mr. Winch was president of  the Trades and Labor council  in Vancouver. At one of tlie  meetings when Mr. Winch was  in the chair, the delegate frbm  the Butcher's union complained that some carpenters Were,  at odd tunes, taking jobs as butchers and that his union wanted the practice stopped.  v The carpenter's delegate  made his reply to the charge  but there was such a hum of  conversation going on that not  all the meeting heard what the  carpenter's delegate had said.  Mr. Winch, the ^president,  was asked to repeat what the  carpenter's delegtae had said,  so in very grave tones and without the sign of a srticker on his  face, he replied that the carpenters claimed some of their  members were butchers. The  laughter that followed the reply I can still hear ringing in  my ears.  C.S. Cassidy  Cedar for shingles continued  to be handled in the form of  "shingle bolts", and for lumbsr  it had been found practicable  to cut the large logs into 16-  foot lengths and split these in-  -. to "long-bolts". These long-  bolts, .could easily be handled  by a team of horses, and. very .  hnportahtly,. could. :��� be sawed  ihto: lumber by a Tsmall mill  that could not attempt to handle the original large- log. This  way of sawing lumber lent: itself to the easy cutting of edge-  grain.  The earliest.^ loggers ^had  built quite good' main roads  through the district, had taken  out a lot of.the- No.-/1 .'ipr,...andr  all the -lower, grade, and all the  cedar was left standing, Then:  about 1890 {I have never learned the exact 3rear) the first  big bush-fire came along, and  seems to have been a dandy.  It probably started in or near  the Cassidy workings, and  came through borne ori a west  wind. In any case, it burned  up most of the original logging  debris, the old tops, branches,  etc., probably became a  '���'crown" fire, and killed most  of the fir that had been rejected and left' standing, and all  the standing cedar. It ran up  the   mountain   to   about   the  2,000 foot  level,  and easterly.  ��� ��� ���  ���- i   .   - ���  .       -������-���   until it died out at the heavy  timber stand behind Watkins  Landing, where there was no  longer logging debris to feed it,  and the crown fire played out.  I remember the first years  we were here, from 1900 on,  the big flat up the hill, from  the cemetery corner to past  Smith's Landing, was' almost .  barren ox "green1" timber. It  was a groat sweep of. country,  covered with thousands of fire-  killed cedar and fir snags,  mostly large, and 'mostly quite.  sound still; alder was beginning to come along the creek  beds; tlie. big flats were covered  Your Local Member  M.L.A.

If successful, it will  add greatly to B.C.'s already  inspiring progress in the fields  of  health arid  welfare..  It has started already with  the Kinsmen making $50,000  available through their B.C.  Polio Fund to provide immediate care for handicapped children who can benefit by existing treatment facilities.  f' But that is only the first  email step. The other steps depend on tlie generosity of B.C.  citizens this month when the  Kinsmen  campaign  for  $400,-  This money will finance continued care for polio patients  and. lay the groundwork for  a child care program which  will 'be outstanding in Canada.  The necessity for such a program was outlined recently in  Vancouver by Dr. D.A. Steele,  former chairman of the-Polio  Fund's medical advisory board  and now president of the Can-  , adian Foundation for Poliomyelitis.  "There are at present in  B.C.," he said, "some 27,000  children who need help but  for many of whom, at this moment, there is no source of  help because treatment facilities and trained staff are not'  available."  Not all of these children are  , confined to bed or wheelchairs  or crutches. Dr. Steele mentioned those with speech, hearing and eye defects; those with  heart ailments, asthma, allergies arid muscle disorders.  He emphasized the'-.plight ..-.of  the emotionally disturbed child  and those yoxingsters who are  ���considered retarded but who  would not be soif proper facilities were available to estab-  list the reason for their retarded state.  To solve this problem of  i child care, Dr. Steele said, a  child development and rehabilitation centre is needed. Kinsmen and doctors connected  with the new project envision  this centre as a 300-bed hospital complete with all the  many specialized clinics which  are needed.  ��������������������������������������������������������������������  ANDREA' TIDMARSH. ONE OF THE YOUNGEST polio  patients in B.C., is four years old and is receiving rehabilitation  treament in Vanbuver under sponsorship of the Kinsmen's B.C.  Polio Fund. To 'date the fund has given $1,452 to help Andrea  to full recovery. Kinsmen this month are campaigning for  $400,000 to continue polio.care and to ..start, a new program of  rehabilitation for an' estimated 27,000 handicapped B.C. youngsters.       .    '  v But before this dream can  become a reality, the skilled  personnel to care for the children who would come from every part of B.C. must be pro-,  vided.  This involves establishing a  School of Rehabilitation at the  University of B.C* which will  be the first of its kind in the  world because it will train rehabilitation  experts   in teams.  So the Kinsmen have budgeted their $400,000 in 'this  fashion: ��� $150,000 to continue  theirvpolio care program; $50,-  000 to provide immediate aid  to handicapped' children who  ���can benefit by existing treatment facilities: $50,000 to start  the School of Rehabilitation by  next September and $150,000  for a start on the child development and rehabilitation cen  tre as soon as possible.  "We think this is one of the  finest service projects our clubs  could undertake," said R.  Bruce Grey, president of the  B.C. Polio Fund, "and 'we hope  everyone in. B.C. will support  us."

He may have  had a Saturday night in that  hospitable- city in his wanderings, so has the writer, but last  Saturday night, Port Mellon  had the edge on Glasgow.  The rest of the evening was  spent in dancing to the Mellon-  aires. One curious social note  was that quite a number of the  ladies danced in their stocking  feet, which we thought must  be hard on the nylons.  There was a   large   number  of guests from outside points,  Wilson Creek,  Roberts Creek,  Gibsons and Hopkins, and this  makes   one   think  of  what   a  change has taken place since  January, 1952, before the road  was   through to Port .Mellon.  On   that   Burns'   Supper ������ the  writer was the only one from  this side of Port Mellon, and,  a stranger going to a;.strange  place, he had to go upTbh the  school boat the day before, ahd  landed into a snowstorm and  a foot  of mud,  and the construction  work   then   in   progress made Port Mellon look  like   nothing   on   earth.   Now  there is a first class road leading to a tidy town, and to a  community  centre  that in its  appointments   is "the   envy  of  many larger settlements.   But,  it was a-.warm welcome and a  lot of fun five years ago, just  as it was last Saturday.

"The youth of today shows  keen initiative, they seek guidance but waht to make their  own decisions. They resent too  much outside leadership. They  have a wholesome attitude towards the church'and religion.  They are loyal to their own religion, but more tolerant to  other religious groups, than the  young, people of half a cenJtury  ago."  This brief paragraph is a  summing up of a lengthy report and is a little better than  one might expect. There have  been drastic changes; think of  the automobiles alone, which  did not exist then; there are  parts of the United States and  Canada where there is one car  for every five of the population; in some areas, horses are  becoming a rarity.

Mr. Gunderson is tlie chairman of the  Toll Highway and Bridge Authority, a public body created  by our provincial government,  and   the Black  Ball  Co.  is  a  private company. I am firm7y  of the opinion that there is a  conflict of interests in Mr. Gunderson holding two such opposing  positions  and   strong  representations should be made to  have  Mr.   Gunderson give  up  one or the other of his jobs.

Regarding your little footnote Mr- Editor, it is my opinion that public sentiment, as  you put it,,is influenced by the  propaganda that is being doled  out over the air and in the  press every day.     ,  The majority of people are  very gullible and it does not  take much effort to just take  things for granted.

As regards propaganda effects on  the populace, in the past the  press and radio in Alberta has  strongly opposed tlie Social  Credit government.

The beginning use of logs  other than actualiy select No.  1 fir, the. use.of-cedar;-for both  jshingles and lumber, made possible the operation of "one-  fhorse" type of logging, suitable to the resources of tlie set-  'tler. These men then might  work, for one of the regular  logging outfits, or" they might  get a-team of horses and put  out' timHef^ themselves. There  was plenty of the old fire-killed cedar around, some of fine  quality, and lots of fir left that  had good lumber; and most  main roads were already in:  Z 'Getting-, .out: shingle-bolts was  'a common way to "make a dollar". These were mostly haui-  ed to" the water on sleds, on the  ���skid-roads; but flumes were also being experimented with. I  think the first local flume was  one heading at a dam on Gibson Creek, not far above the  present site of the Sucre Lumber Co. mill, this flume led to  the beach at near the present  Grantham's Landing, wharf.  Another, early flume (the first  mentioned was built about  1896 or 1^97) Was-built by the  Nicksons, near Roberts Creek,  in 1901. This was west of the  Creek, giving the name of  "Fiume Bay." Later, of course,  there were other and more ela**  borate installations, such as  'the McNair -at Roberts Creek,  fehe Battle ahd Drew, and the  Stoltze,- from the mountain behind Gibsons, and the McNair  at Dakota Creek.    ������'���  Generally, v throughout the  Coast, the cutting of shingle  bolts, and much of the actual  handling was done in the earliest days by Chinese, who later  were supplanted by Japanese.  The latter would often - backpack shingle bolts for' great  distances to the skid-road, really killing work; but the. hauling was done by horses, and  the 'Japanese never! seemed to .  learn how to handle horses .  well. However, locally, while  there were quite a number of  both Chinese and Japanese in  the work at times, I believe  most was done by whites. The  local small. logging was almost  entirely by', whites, T^iid thus  furnished: some income for the  settlers. T  7  ^      (To be Continued)  Port Mellon  BY MRS. M.

From a win standpoint, the  Cougars this year have not  been too successful, but some  very promising players are developing and in future years  should make a team not to be  ignored.  In the first seven games,  Cougars played a tight, ranid  (passing game then a slump  set in.
