Shop and Compare  SYLVIA'S  :   The handiest store  in  Town  Open daily ��� 8 a.m. to Midnight  X To allay rumors covering the  obtaining of airport property  hear .Wilson Creek through  the municipalities of Sechelt  and Gibsons, members of Elphinstone Aero Club,have released a letter from the federal department of transport in  Vancouver     which     explains  'what has to be done to obtain  ithe needed land.  T... it has already been arranged  that the club obtain Crown Reserve* property of considerable  dimensions at a cost of $20, of  which $10'is for the land and  T$10 for legal fees on the transfer bf land.  Based on uncertainties that  have arisen in both village  commissions, the department  has reiterated what will have  to be done so as to clarify the  issue - for the commissioners  and the public generally.  This letter dated April 18  has been sent to both village  commissions:      ,..- ���.,���"  Corporations of the Villages  of Gibsons and Sechelt:  It is regretted that certain  misunderstandings have arisen  as a "result of our previous correspondence and the following  points are: being detailed to  clarify the issue.  ^AA  The minimum dimensions  required for a public licensed  airport are 2,000 ft. long, 200  ft. wide with 50 ft. cleared on  each side making a total width  of 300 ft. Approach clearing  at a ratio of 1:25, 500 ft. wide  must be established at each  end of the landing strip.  When the proposed airport  has been developed to the  above minimum standards the  corporations would be in the  logical position to apply for  the airport tO; be licensed.  It is urged that/the corporations immediately; acquire lot  1528 Coast District for devel-';  opm'ent as an airport. While1  lots 1592, 4092, 1029A and the  west half of lot 1561 Coast  District, referred to in-our letters of March 26 and April ��,  1957, are desireable in connection with long range planning  for ultimate development, theT  procurement of any part or all '  of these additional properties  should definitely not postpone  or delay the immediate acquisition of lot 1528. Nor would  such a delas-- in acquiring these  additional lots necessarily prevent tlie. corporations applying  for federal aid.  With regard to federal aid,  this may be applied for when  (a) tlie minimum land . re-:  quired for airport purposes is  in the name, of a municipal  body and (b) when develop-:  ment has reached the stage  where facts and figures indicate .the municipal authority,  has made a start to get development underway. Such re-'  quests for grant-in-aid should  be submitted in the form ot  a brief presenting reasons, y  facts and figures, whereupon  it is submitted to the Bureau of  Ecotiomics   for   consideration.  a  summer campaign  :T The Joint Forest Products  Safety Committee have announced that the  1957  Safety  ���'������; Week campaign will be held  M^ay 6-11. The week-long  campaign is being sponsored  by government, labour and  Trftanagement organizations ^to  ciit the toll of accidents in the  forest products industry.  XX Last    year's    Safety    Week  drive resulted in a 50 % reduc-  ; tion   in  the  number  of   accidents for that period.  yy. Premier W.A:C. Bennett announced that tiie Government  of British Columbia has issued  a  formal   proclamation  back-  yihg the campaign. He said forest products workers must be  helped to develop the maximum safety consciousness, for  success or failure ��� of the campaign will hinge to a large extent on the workman himself.  i In 1956, 115 workmen were  killed in the forest products industry, 9,940 were injured.  , X To signal the start of the  campaign, the labour minister,  ilyle Wicks, will raise the "No  Accident flag" at the Workmen's Compensation Board Re-  2iabilitation Centre on Monday  May 6, at 9:00 a.m.  X Many hundreds of No-Accident flags will also be raised  on the same day in forest products plants throughout the  province. If there; is .'an, acci-  qe11* in a plant? or operation  the flag must be lowered.

Mrs. S. Tyson, Mrs, R.

Proponents of the move of  the Pender Harbour area Post  Office from Irvine's Landing  to Garden Bay have presented  their argument to postal officials and the basis of their argument is that population is  moving more towards the  southern end of the Harbour  area therefore that is where  the post office should be./  Nothing definite has yet  been received from Vancouver  district postal officials so the  decision is still apparently not  made.  Business operators in the  southern section report the  present postal arrangement is  an inconveniece to them and  in view of their argument that  population changes call for a  reshaping of postal service,  they hope something will be  done to help them,.  ;';fT'^e|:^igrtatiori' T <& iV:R^|iis.'

To offset misconceptions concerning establishment of a  municipal airport near Wilson Creek it should be made clear that  $he municipalities of Sechelt and Gibsons are not involved in  any huge expenditure while the airport is being established or  when it is established.  First, the large tract of, land available for the airport  will cost $20, half for the Crown Reserve land and the other  iialf for legal fees. Secondly, a boundary���-arid boundary only  ��� survey will be made to establish the legal area occupied by  the airport. This may cost in the region of $500.  Talk of having to purchase expensive property in the vicinity of the airport is incorrect and further, if any large outlay  of cash has to be made through municipalities, the municipalities  Wy law are forced to seek approval of ratepayers before they  can,spend such money.  The idea that a 5,000 x 500 foot paved runway would have  to be constructed is also erroneous. Requirements called for by  the federal Department of Transport are for a 2,000 x 200 foot  * runway with a 50 foot clearance on either side. This runway will  Se available to light craft only and will be a graded runway.  Suggestions have been made that establishment of the  airport would bankrupt both Sechelt and Gibsons. Several hundred municipalities across Canada have taken part in similar  airport schemes and if any one of them has; gone bankrupt by  go doing, The Coast News will be quite willing to publish such  Biformation.  'It could be surmised that officials of the federal Department of Transport are somewhat "browned Off" by misconceptions that are befogging the issue. The department is doing its  Best to help Elphinstone Aero club officials establish.an airport  and tlie provincial lands, department has also helped. Very little  2&ow stands in the way. Do we get an airport Or don't we?  ime for a change  It does seem strange that a man hauling a 'horse behirid  an auto at the-rate of two miles an hour should be charged with  impeding traffic and fined while owners of cattle, are allowed tP  let them stand stock still in the centre of a much travelled highway and get away with it by pleading immunity under provincial laws. In this case justice is definitely blind.  i    THEY SELDOM ^HAPPEN  ..���It is ,an old saying that..* tlie  worst troubles are .baseless and  aeldojoi happen....Most, of us. can  ieme^ber things about twhich  we Jfxetted send perhaps lost  sleep T but we have lived, lftng  ���enough to laugh ; at ourselves*"  lor'oiir folly. In any Tcircum-  fence Tthe sensible thing is to  .��fb. pur best ��� making sure it  jsT our best ��� and' leave the  iest. We cannot carry to-day's  load and: tomorrow's with the  strength of to-day. Actually  when we worry uselessly, we  ^akke ourselves unfit to carry  the .burden about which we are  Apprehensive.  .T^ears^ago I .knew "a lad in  ifhe north of England who. had  to Journey to. London for any  ^am. --.-He-: worried so .much  that when he. entered ?the testing room, he became ill and  after a few minutes: had to  4eaye and was.not allowed to  jteturri. That' was a lesson I  >aever forgot.  -It.is often said that, next������������to .  tne; Bible, Pilgrim's Progress-  % "the most widely read book  in. the World. Anyone who has  g-ead it will remember such interesting places as the City of  Destruction, the Slough of De-  ���spond, the Hill Difficulty,; the  Valley of Humiliation, Doubting Castle, and many other  places-which- Christian * saw-; in  Bis pilgrimages  Some of these were beauti*  fed; others were ugly and dan-,  serous. Qnje^of^the loveliest; ofy  them all was the Palace Beautiful., Qn his way. there Christian saw two men running out  to meet him, and they were  terribly afraid. One man was  named Timorous and the other  Mistrust. Christian could not  ���understand why anyone should  be running back on" the way he  'had come, so he said to them,  ^What is the matter? You are  attaining the wrong way!"  ., Timorous told him that they  were pilgrims to the City of  .Zion but that they were con-  tantly meeting great dangers.  Then-Mistrust said, "And just  before us lie a couple of lions  and we could not think but  that, if we came within reach,  they would presently; pull us  to pieces."  Christian was hiniself alarmed at this news and for a minute was Tdiposed to ipin them  in their;flight,-but;he.reflected  upon-.alI.the perils he had met  :and overcome, and he decided  to press on. to the Celestial  City. file, too saw the lions, before theflPalace Beautiful, and  they roared savagely, but the  porter told him that they were  chained and could not do him  any harm. He clapped his  hands and went on until he  stood before the gate where  the porter was, and he was  soon admitted.  Thus he knew, as many  others have learned, that for  many people the greatest troubles never happen, j The savage  looking lions are harmless.  In Acts 13, there is the Story  of the .deliveranceyof Peter  frorA prison. As ��� He; and his '"'  angelic deliverer hurried  -through the city, Peter remembered the iron gates that led  into the city arid was concerned about them, but here . is  what happened -��� "When they  approached the gates, they  opened' of their oWh accbrtl."  Ihere is truth in.tiiatTstoryTfor  us; all. There are .many iron  gates about which. we worry  but they open of their own accord when we come to them.  Our quotation is by President F.D. Roosevelt: The thing  we have most to fear is fear itself.  Conservation  The B.C. Federation of Fish  & Game Clubs have launched  a drive throughout B.C. to  raise funds for an expanded  program of public education  and conservation.  The appeal for funds will be  made to individuals and industry by mail and dircet contact canvass by members of the  federation directorate. Anyone who is interested can contact his local fish and game  club, or write the Secretary  of B.C. Fish & Game Clubs,  125 Talisman Avenue, Vancou-  er, B.C. All donations will be  acknowledged.  Article 15  With the population growing  there began to be more avenues  for pleasure  and' recreation.   Probably most  get-togethers were for dances and similar functions.  There was also  some   attention  to   music,   at  first, mostly instrumental, and  usually of the "hay-seed" type.  Only a few could read music,  and played by ear as best they  could but as  nobody present  could do any better there was  just as  much enjoyment.   As  time went on, vocalists began'  to be heard from, and instrumentalists with some degree of  training also appeared.  Many  of4 these were local boys and  girls, and some were very able  performers. One girl who lived  here for some years, Miss Boyd  later, I believe, played violin  with tlie Metropolitan Orchestra in New York City.  *    *    *  Ball games, tennis, badminton, etc., began to be a regularly enjoyed pastime. Boating  of course, was always here, but  that was so much a part of tlie  daily life of many of the community that it was hardly looked upon as recreation. Fishing  was similar.  In years gone by  the   salmon   were   here,   and  could  be   taken, in numbers,  and  of sizes almost unbelievable now-a-days. But for years  most of the sea fishing was for  the   frying  pan and the  salt  barrel or smoke-house.   Trout  fishing was plentiful, but here  again the element of sport was  somewhat lacking.  Very little, if any, fly-fishing was done; partly, perhaps  because most of the small  streams were difficult to fly-  fish. More particularly, probably because so fai; as the kids  were concerned fly gear cost  money, and that we didn't  have. We could usually, rake  up ten feet or so of some sort  of'light line, whittle put a wild  cherry pole, get a hook of sorts  a buck-shot for sinker, and  there were plenty of fat; shiny  worms around the barn-yard.  And we were then all set for  a Sunday morriing, or the afternoon, if we had to get wofrd  iii the morning, y       .   .  r.-AA' y.%XX:%iy:%X y :  Hunting also was primarily,  at least in the early days, for ���  the larder. I did plenty of that;  but I think I have had more  real enjoyment through hunting than any other form of  recreation.  The earliest settlers have .  told me that when they first  came deer were "really scarce.  They came- in later, when the .  forests WerefelledT I have witnessed the same thing at many  other points on the coast. Deer  are almost entirely absent in  Virgin forest ��� there is no  feed there for them. Ifoey  come along and multiply when -  the forest is cut arid the sun  gets to the ground, bringing  along the many edible weeds  and young saplings that can  be browsed. Tri time, of cowrae,  the second-growth timber wins  out, and again the land becomes relatively barren of available feecj^ for game. The  Tsariie a thing - seemsT; true of  grouse.  So far as I have heard, there  was. never elk here (or wapiti,  to give the rriore correct name)  during the time of the white  man. There were, of course,  plenty of black bear, arid some  mountain goat, perhaps not on  Mt. Elphinstone, but certainly  behind Dakota Creek and Port  Mellon. Plenty of wild ducksi,  thobgh this never seems to  have been an important alighting place for: geese; Sechelt Inlet was better.  *  ��� * '���  Read The Real Estate Column  On The Want Ad Pager  Apparently there were quite  a few wolves for some years,  the ��� big r dark colored timber  wolves. Mr. Gibson told of  he and one of hasTcqws being  chased down: the skid-road  right into the barnyard by a  pack. We lived at;'Roberts  Creek during: the winter 1901-  1902, and I ofteih heard the  packs howling at night. I have  come,;onto ��� their sign several  times; the last was during the  heavy snow of January, 1916,  when several were running  deer in the Williamson Landing country. I was hunting in  there, and once caught a  glimpse of two wolves, but  was too slow to get a shot.  But when we first came here  the deer arid grouse were very  plentiful; I got my first, rifle  when I was nine years old, aiid  used to go behind the clearing  and  get  a   couple  of   grouse  nearly every night after school  during spring, summer and fall  All this was strictly pot-hunt-  way. The matter of "closed  ing, but was lots of fun any-  season" never occurred to us  kids; nor to the grown-ups  '<��� either, I guess. Sale of game  was legal in those days, in the  fall months, and one kid told  me that he had made enough  money to buy his first shotgun by killing grouse with  stones.  *     ���*{:     "ft  When one thinks of the endless series of hunting accidents  accidental fire-arms discharge,  etc., of late years, both concerning Ygrqwnrups arid teenagers, it seems impossible that  conditions and freedom such as  we grew up with could exist.  Long before we were 12 years  of age, most of the other boys  and myself had graduated from  the .22 class, and were carrying heavy rifles. Before we  Were that age I think all of  us had been far beyond the saddle of the mountain behind  here, iritb the canyon on the  far side. Yet there were no  accidents.  To us fire-arms were a part  of our lives; a tool to be properly used; something that  gave us a feeling of complete  independence and, self-reliance  ��� we were as good as anybody  else. But it was forcefully  borne into us that rifles were  to be handled properly and  "with care; that they were never to be handled without first*  and immediately ascertaining  whether there was a cartridge  in the chamber; and they must  never under any circumstances  loaded or unloaded, be permitted to be pointing at any person, uriless the custodian of  the weapon was prepared to  fire to "kill.  And after many years of see-  , ing hundreds/perhaps thousands, of both men and deer in  the woods, I never yet saw a  man that looked or moved like  a deer, or vice versa.

A    special    committee    has  been   set  up   by B.C.  School  Trustees Association to study a  proposal that teachers become  civil ��� servants, on government  payroll and under government  direction as to placement  throughout  the  province.  Committee members are J-S.  Williams, Sooke, representing  the BCSTA Vancouver Island  Branch; P.M. Hopkins, Kitimat, North Coast Branch; and  T.K. Moilliet, Mainline-Cariboo  Branch. *  The, suggestion that teachers  be placed on a civil list was  placed before the executive by  trustees who contended it  would effectively end bitterness over salary negotiations;  and would solve the problem  of distributing teachers through  the province instead of permitting them; to concentrate at  the points they "consider most  desirable. ' J ;  A.W.E. Mercer of New Westminster, BCSTA president, directed that the committee prepare a report on the subject for  the trustees' provincial convention at Victoria September 23-*  25.

Public co-operation has already paid Off substantially,  according to the Canadian Forestry Association. The number  of   fires   charged   to   careless  smokers* and campers has  dropped from almost 50% to  17% since the association commenced its fire prevention and  public education campaigns in  this province.  Widespread interest in the  "Keep Green" movement was  emphasized this year with receipt of a challenge from Governor Roselini of Washington  to Brian B. Gattie, President  of the B.C. Branch of the Canadian Forestry Association wagering a box of Washington  State apples against a case of  B.C. salmon. Winner will be  the region with the least number of forest fires caused by  human carelessness.  Briefly summarized, the Forest Fire Law sets May 1 to  October 31 as the closed sea-  on during which permits must  be obtained from the local forest officer before starting any  The British American Oil Co.

Uuder the  law* it is illegal to build any  campfire within 10 feet of any  log, stump, snag or standing  tree. All inflammable materr*-  al must be cleared away for a  distance of three feet in every  direction from the edge of every campfire and every camp-  fire must be totally extinguished before leaving.       \.y  Able-bodied citizens must  help in fighting forest fires  when called upon by a duly attr  thorized officer.  Lighted matches must also  be totally extinguished before  being  thrown away.  It is the duty of every adult  resident in B.C. discovering a  fire to do his utmost to prevent it from spreading and to  report it as quickly as possible  to the Forest Service.  Violations of the provincial  fire law may bring fines of  from $25 to $300 or imprison?-  ment for up to two years. Penalties are also provided for any  persons entering the woods,  when they have been closed to  travel by order of the Forest  Branch. 1  The B.C. Forest Service  maintains an extensive forest  protection system to ensure  prompt action against fire in;  any region of the province, but .  even the most elaborate forest  protection program will fall  by the way if the, public does  not co-operate.  Here are four,points that evl  erv camper, hiker or traveller  in our woods should bear iri  mind at all times:  (1) Break that match. (2)  Drown that campfire. (3) Crush  that cigarette. (4) Use that  ashtray!  ..-;/  Sawmill owner  dies suddenly  Sydney Charles Burton, proprietor of Porpoise Bay Sawmill died suddenly, Monday,  April 22.
