';���;''���.*.���  ���. c' ;It is; expected the Gibsons  r meeting will be sponsored, by  'the Kiwanis club and the pub-  ��� lie is invited to hear this much-  travelled and prominent, speaker on Canadian subjects.  v.- Along with-Mr; Fisher com-  ving to B.C. will be William  ' Swartz, a restaurant' expert,  I Guy  Moorej an authority������ on  ��� hotels and Mrs.7.-;Denny.- who  ��� runs a; school in Alberta for  ���:service personnel;:  The party is being sponsor-  Tied by the B.C. Tourist Bureau  ~: and Mr. Fisher and others of  the party will be spending a  couple of days? on the Sunshine  Coast before moving over to  ; Vanc6uver Island.  The announcement of Mr,  ,. Fisher's coming was made at  the meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Tourist Association held  in Powell River last Sunday,  by Ernest Evans, commissioner  of the Travel Bureau.  The reason why/ the  party  , has been invited .to B.C. is to  give B.C. .hotel, motel and restaurant  people   a ' chance   to  hear "from   experts   in   their  *'various   fields   what .can   be  _ done to improve tonrist-facil-.

The Powell River meeting  discussed various angles-to  tourist business and Mr. Smith  said th��t with 27 motels in this,  area with a capital of more  than $1,000,000 should be on  its toes to attract tourists to  this   area   and  the   attraction  should not only be towards,getting them to come but keeping  them here with organizedTat-  ' tractions so they would be willing to come back and bring'  their friends with,them.  ' At a previous meeting of the  Tourist association it was an-;  nounced as a result of an article appearing in a Seattle  newspaper that some 60 letters  were sent to the secretary,  seeking further, information. It  was felt that this type of publicity did  considerable  to. at-  ' tract tourists. y     "'   "''.

As a result of the opening of  discussion on closing houte, debate at times centered on a uniform closing period -including  the half-day store closing. The  matter Was left over for another meeting. The commission is considering the posibil-  ity of framing a bylaw to get  uniformity and to have con-  ' trol over trading- hours in  shops and other means of re-  ' tail trade.

It was a wonderful experi-T  ence  to see the friendly relations which exist between the  white /community andl the In- .

It must  have -taken weeks '  of preparation to arrange for  the seating of about 250 guests  in   the   beautifully   decorated s  auditorium.    A    cold    turkey,  plate with all the  trimmings,  ice   cream   and    strawberries  and mountains  of cake wer��  - served by  the younger girls.  Coloured   balloons   bounced  happily from the ceiling   arid  walls,: giving  a  rainbow hue  over  the white-clothed  tables,  arid riiiles of crepe paper hangings seemed to join in the rner-  ry conversation of the' guests.  The Reverend   Principal   of  the Residential School, Father  O'Brien,: was   master of ceremonies,   arid his Irish brogue  and   humor    were   delightful.  Father Mclnearney, the   dean  in; this district���  who  lives, in  Powell River, kept the guests  entrariced with his liveiy way  of speaking.   He highly   complimented   the  band, for >the  singirig of the cOrigregatipn in  the chiurch ; at the  Mass ceremonies,, and said emphatically  that the interior decoration of  their church is the most modern an;d ��� beautiful of  any in  his district.-      y       . , ���*   ���-..'������  -   Fathers Kenny,, Ryan, Nolan  and Bernadb were  present, as  ..well as Mother Superior Doro:.  thy of the Order of the Child  Jesris. f Andy Paull  of the Native Brotherhood.and A.E.

Chief Andy Paull Of North  Vancouver, in his address, suggested that the Indian tribes in  B.C. send spiritual bouquets  to the Pope for May 17; For  the first tiirie in the history of  Canada a carving is to be  shipped airmail to the Holy  Father in Rome. The carving  will be the Crucifixiori. super-  mounted on an Indian Head,  with a brass plate erigraved to  read��� "From the Roman Catholic Indians   of Canada."  Father Mclnearney* delivered a/message from, the Archbishop Duke o^ Canada, who  was unable tp attend the celebrations due to former committments.  -After :the banquet, and the  excitement of the CBUT television cameras, we were escorted through the Residential School and the newer day  school. The handiwork of the  pupils was on display;- and the  intricate needle and .bead work  would make a professional  look to his'mettle,-believe me!  From the rousing cheers going on Jn the sports field, the  soccer game -between the Se-  cheltonians and the Sliamnons  was a good one, but the wind  had turned quite nippy and we*  white brothers crawled into  our warm cars and stole away  home, filled with good food  and happy feelings. I never  did find out the score of that  game.  Fellows'  Square Dance officials be approached with the idea of having the dancers put on a half-  Thour or more demonstration  before the Fair dahcei starts on  the Saturday night.  It- was "announced that the  dance group which came last  year from Vancouver, a group  of about a dozen girls, pupils  of Mary Isdale, would be back  again this year to perform.  Enthusiasm for the. fair is  again high and it is expected  that with an ever widening  list of entries that more people will be* attracted to take  part in the annual event.  During the next few. weeks  there will be further meetings  of the fair committee and the  various sub-committees will  be at work also devising ways  arid riieans of getting things  underway.  Monday night's meeting  cleared up a . ' considerable  amount of work but the directors of the . committee would  like to have more help from  iriany riiore people in order to  lighten the load on the present volunteer committee.

Dr. John Playfair, president  of thet Pender Harbour Board  of Trade introduced Tom Hastings from the fire .marshall's  office, Vancouver who showed  two films on fire preventioh  dealing with both home arid industrial  fires.  Followirig the films, Mr.  Hastings outlined the procedure for forming a volunteer  fire fighting unit and described  the activities of a number already functioning in various  parts of B.C., in particular, an  exceptionally successful brigade in Nakusp, which, like  Pender. Harbour, ,is unorganized territory, Ty  Mr, Hastings, who had toured  the  Harbour  previous  to   the  meeting with Board  of Trade  officials,   stated   the   scattered  area of the Harbour presented  ; many diffidulties, Tput that' if  -1^-y,n��^ibnty^i^'TtB^  really wanted a voliintieer fire  brigade, it could be established  in a small way, to start with  pumps arid hose,   suitable  for  transport by boat which would  reachv homes up  to  1500 feet  from the shoreline. Land equipment could come later.  .    Finances   should   be   taken  care  of  by the   establishment  of a provincial fire district.  In  such a fire district*, taxes would  be   assessed   for    fire-fighting  and the  full  amount   of  such  ear-marked taxes   returned to  the official fire brigade for the  purchase   of   equipment.    The  tax   levy   required   would   be  small, but could only be ihade  with the agreement of a two-  thirds majority of the taxpayers in the area.  Dr. Playfair thanked Mr.  Hastings for his outline of the  subject and the meeting unanimously decided to elect a committee of three to sound out  the feelings of the taxpayers  and to prepare a petition for  the signatures of those willing  to pay the taxes necessary to  form a fire district. ���. ���.

Flitting money to work  There is a sum of money lying in ^he bank which should  lie put to some humanitarian use. This money* is what was left  ��sver after the wind-up of the VON organization in Gibsons. The  "Setal amounts to something more than $1,000.  It has been suggested to the Coast News by more than  i-ne person that this money should be turned over to the St.  Mary's Hospital during the drive for funds. The Coast News has  sounded out various people interested in this idea and finds them  to be favorably inclined.  If it is to be done, how about some action, quickly?  The political campaign  Official opening of the federal general election campaign  ��liar as the Sunshine Coast is concerned will occur on May 6  ^fcen Hon. James Sinclair, minister of fisheries and member for  ���gfie Coast-Capilano constituency, will speak.  Some people in high places are viewing the struggle in  British Columbia as a battle for control between Mr. Sinclair  said B.C.'s Premier Bennett. This could be so. It could be that  Mr. Bennett's aim is to control B.C. politics federally as well as  proviricially but the unusual part about such a setup is that it  'hasrarely happened in Canadian politics. It seems provincial  and federal politics are diverse to the voter.      .  Disregarding characters involved and analyzing  the situation   as it most likely will  appear  after the election, B.C.  -would be in a better position by electing Liberals��� because  that, government will be returned. Some people will say such a  -   ^jractice is vicious but when one sizes up the various fields, Liberal, Conservative, CCF and Social Credit and weighs all possi-  ���Mities, there does not appear any wide divergence in basic political platforms. True, some of the words are extremely vague  sreen when supposed to appear startling.  The Liberal party has been in office a long time.   But  why blame the Liberals for this. The voters put them there arid  iEhere must have been a reason for so doing. In Ottawa the Liberals have strengeh and the other* parties are weak.  In /British  ColiuaMa, Social Credit is strong and the other parties are weak.  Will. Social Credit appeal to the old party sttongholds.  Ontario and Quebec? It will be surprising if it does.

Histories for  Old-time, residents in all  *S>arts of British Colurribia are  ScKated today to contribute to  community histories being  written in their home towns.  ' "E&e British Columbia Cen-  iiennial committee, to assist local committees to gather material, has inserted an advertisement in this issue of The  Coast News asking all B.C. old-  .Y'SIrne residents to communicate  : Tviih their home town.  l3x addition to aiding in the  ���sompilation of community his-  ���Jeries, the information sent in  ����� expected to be useful in publicising the Centenary locally,  helping to keep interest high.

Centennial  Chairman, L.J. Wallace,, "and  early-day stories and anecdotes  will be very welcome."  "The suggestion that a solicitation of material be carried  out on a province-wide scale  was the original idea of one of  the local centennial committees," Mr. Wallace said. "Since  all local committees have the  same need, a mass appeal is  the simplest one, and we are  hoping for an excellent response."    .'.'.,  "Replies should riot be sent  to the B.C.

Sunshine Coast Fair Board.  ; Rumour and gbssip are nuisances and  can become menaces to business,   government  and  individuals.   They poison  relations between   people and  affect the well-being of society.  -Rumour,    cuts     across    all  boundaries ��� of occupation and  private life with a speed that  is   greater   than, that  of   any  other   human   communication.  Gossip, mostly directed against  something   or   soriieone,   does  damage in business^ family or  community groups.  Both cling  to invention and  deceit,   and  both, even though containing  grains of truth, are malignant.  What can we do  about it?  In  business  life,  in   personal  life, and in social life we need  to puncture the lies in the gossip we hear.. One mark of a rumour   that   makes   it   distirict  from the truth is that it carries with it no secure standard  of evidence.   The, teller often  seeks  to protect his integrity  by saying something  like: "It  is only rumour, but I heard.."  Or he may say: "A man wiho  ought to know says..'-."  *    *    *  Under some conditions gossip is a powerful tool for keeping society in order ethically  and politically. We all dislike  to be "talked about" because  we cherish social approbation.  In small communities, where  everyone knows everyone else,  gossip is effective in restraining anti-social behavior.  People    who     manufacture  false tales to push their own  interests are likely to take advantage of feelings of fear. If  the times are out of joint, if  our familiar   world   is  being  touched by innovation, if workers   are   apprehensive * about  new taxes or new methods or  changes in management, there  is   a  ready-made occasion for  the rumour-monger's effort. He  may   seize   upon   a   "poison"  word, or use a good word in  a    poisonous    way.    Consider  how Marc Antony did just that  in hiS speech, skilfully converting good words into poisonto  turn    public    feeling    against  Brutus, the "honorable" man.  An illustration used by Stuart Chase in Power ofNWords  Tyill make this clear'. The iEcon-  omist (London) listening in as-  toriishment to the charges coming from investigating committees of the United States Con-  y^gre?S^in^lSS2;-proceeded to?ap- ,:  ply their logic to Sir Winston'  Churchill. As a member of the  Church   of Erigland,   said  the  Economist, Churchill was automatically  associated   with .an'  admittedly fellow-traveller, the  "Red" Dean of Canterbury. As  a   mem ber  o f.. parliament,  Churchill    for    fifteen,   years  shared the House of Commons  with a card-carrying Communist,   William Gallacher.   As   a ''..-  mernber bf the Big Three  in  World War   II,   Churchill sat  at conference  tables with Joseph Stalin. Therefore, according to the "guilt by association" '  method of judgement, Churchill must be a Communist.  ' To us, reading,thoughtfully,  this appears to be the .height  of absurdity���but, after all, is  its reasoning very different  from that behind many rumours in factory and office, in  church and school, in community and home?  -Some people lump propaganda together with scandal, rumour and gossip in a wholesale condemnatiori. 7 Here we .  run into danger of "guilt by  association." Undoubtedly pro-  paganda is like planned rumour, in that it is designed to  influence the attitudes of people through the use of suggestion. But much education is of  the same sort.  The evil in. some propaganda *  is its failure   to disclose the   T  source   of   information.    The  most   subtle   element  in   the,  .  propaganda   of the 'European <- .  dictators was   their   exploita-1  tion of the dummy so we did  not  notice the ventriloquist's  tricks.  Educational        propaganda,  openly avowed, f making its apr  peal to   reasori,  cireditirig. the ������"'.  listener   with- some   common  sensed aeknoWledging the ��� exis-"  terice of fair play and justice  -���   that  sort   of   propaganda  should not be put in the same  basket with' propaganda   that  appeals to envy,   hatred, prejudice, and pur baser instincts.  Propaganda   is  not   subject  matter,   but  the way subject  matter is  presented. It is, as?  they termed it during ''-the late  war,, either "black" or "white"  ���- hidden or open in its spon- '  :sorship. .  A piece of rumour or gossip  planted  in a workshop or office to sap morale or confuse  issues is  "black" propaganda;  a statement  printed  over the  signature of a responsible person and posted for all to see  is "white" propaganda.  It is not by chance that  "black" propaganda is mostly  of the "poison pen", sort, de-.  signed to spread hatred, while  propaganda carried out openly  is directed toward betterment,  co-operation and friendship.  *    # ...'."*"���'������-.'���������  Propaganda by rumour is at  its worst when it refrains from  making outright statements  and contents itself with colouring information. It whitens  the saintly characters of some  and blackens others. We shall  find it worth while,, if we seek  not to fumble our human rer  lationships, to comper a revelation of what is in the accuser's  mind. The great condemnation  of Pontius Pilate is not that  he asked a question: "What is  truth?" but that he did not  compel an answer.  Searching * examination is  just as necessary with printed  matter as it is with speken  words. We do not need to beware only of what is printed  in so-called "scandal sheets."  We need to look for thoughtless or sly inclusion of opinion  and bias in'news reports and  commentaries.  What is printed need not be  untrue in order to convey a  wrong thought or impression.  The emphasis in display, in  size of .type, and in the use of  \tfords may slant what is reported in favour of this or that  party or against this or that  action. Merely the tone of a  headline may tend t0 assassinate a man's business, political  or p'ersonal character. -  .      . ���** *5* ��V-  Reporters and other writers  have a difficult task. The reading public expects to be given  a true report' of an event, and  the writers may in all honesty  think they are providing this.  But the.reporters get their information from people who are  sometimes eye-witnesses of the  event, sometimes not. The only  report of a erirne available to  the public may be written by  a reporter who received it  from a policeman who had it,  from a man who saw the event  from half a block away. There  is ample chance -for rumour,  embellishment and mistake to  creep in.  The code of the American  Society of Newspaper Editors  reclares "News reports Tshould  be free from opinion or bias of  any kind;" Even when this  code is earnestly observed by  writers, the reader is not excused from exercising reasonable care to detect bias, Tperr  haps produced by leanings the  Writer does not know he has.  Readers would be helped in  this weeding out if newspapers  adopted the precaution of incorporating a warning when  statements are unverified, or  deductions unproved. The responsibility of the press is not  .alone to avoid libellous statements for which they might be  held accountable at law, but to  protect their readers from be-  irig misled by mere rumour,  by unverified gossip, and by  black propaganda.  #    #    #  Readers may protect themselves from many errors of  thought by taking a simple precaution: look at the adjectives  in any written news or comment. They can make of truth  a false report.. Are they laudatory? Are they disparaging?  Do they add emphasis to a  fact? Do they rninimize an  event? Is the general effect of  a piece of writing to make you  angry? Then score out the adjectives with your pencil and  see if the article still has the  same effect.  It is one of the attributes of  mankind that we can look at  all sides of a question and consider, how far the facts will  support an opposite view* There  is a significant fable about two  knights who fought abput the  colour of a shield of which neither looked at more than one  side.' Each combatant, seeing  clearly his own aspect of the  question, has charged his opponent "with stupidity or dishonesty in not seeing, the same  aspect of it,, while each has  lacked the candour or the curiosity to go over to his oppon- '  ent's side and find put how it  was that he saw things so differently.  - This finding out what is on  the other side of the shield  is a necessary part of any ef-  2    Coast News, May 2, 1957.  ��� ���   ��� ������     !���!���������   III.-.I  i���_-w^m ����������������� anii.    ���        i ������   ��������� ^  fort to stop or counter false  lumour An article in. the periodical Industry said, that in  the battle against faft^ rumour  there can be no offensive;, only  a defense, In. business, this  means telling workers T what  affects them, quickly, cpriiplet-  ely and unariibiguoiisly.

The Toronto Mail editorial  page contained editorials covering such matters as the Manitoba school question on the  right of Roman Catholics to be  exempt from the public school  tax; an editorial covering a  Jesuit move to line up the  French medical school with Laval University instead of Victoria University at Coburg,  Ont. and another on the departure of Prof. Ramsay Wright  of the University of Toronto  to examine in.

Mrs. Jessie Hardie, grand  guardian, Mr. D. Hardie, past  associate grand guardian, acting secretary; Mrs. D. Bennet,  acting chaplain and Mrs. D.  Drummond, acting organist,  presented the Bethel U.D. with  Y��&eir charter in a colorful ceremony.  A large representation of parents and friends witnessed the  Bites along   with   members  of  ���gfae Masonic, Eastern Star and  3>eMolay Orders.  The girls were congratulated  apon the smoothness and perfection of their work. It was  exactly two months between  the institution and the consti-  ���_otion of their Bethel and their  ���snthusiastic efforts and diligence have been rewarded by  .outstanding accomplishments.  The usual time alloted to learn  the ritual is three months.  Much credit goes to their  guardian council who have  worked unsparingly on the  girls' behalf.  Miss Joan Reeves of Sechelt  is the first honoured queen of  the first Bethel on the Sunshine  <��oast (Bethel 28) and to her  ' also must be given a great deal  ��f credit for her leadership and  ability.  - Fallowing the ceremony,  supper was served in the banquet room, the tables decorated  w. mauve and white, accented  with Spring flowers.  The 27 new "Jobies" are ori  ike job judging by the success  ��f two teas at Sechelt arid Gibsons. The object of the teas was  Ho acquaint parents of the girls  w^th each other. Job's parents  are an important part of .their  order and are brought into  ���gheir ceremonies.  Money raised at the teas was  for expenses .such,as rent of  ftalV officers' gowns and so'on,  arid the amount far exceeded  their expectations.

Rae Kruse opened the event  and gave the stage over to the  master of ceremonies, Bob Hut-  ton of Radio CKNW who kept  up a chatter between numbers  and gave the performers a  chance t�� get their breath.  To say the show was an eye-  opener would be a modest  statement because some of the  performers really had talent to  spare. The Laverock Trio composed of John, Mary and  George practically stopped the  show with their trumpet, accordion and guitar -combination. .The lad on the trumpet  .was really outstanding or as  the younger generation imgt-t"  say. was real smooth.  Another act of top quaHts^  was the comedy dancing, oi  Donna Jean arid Bruce Frame.  Young Bruce had all the poise  of a professional. Clare Young  and Donna Sankey in acrobatic dances made the oldsters  want to >be supple and young,  �����gain.'?

It was a good show and-the  Kiwanis deserve credit for  having such friends in Vancouver who could bring to Gibsons at little expense to the local club a variety show which  certainly pleased those who  .witnessed it.

Also present were Mr. and Mrs.  Andy Hansen and Tove, daughter and son-in-law and granddaughter, also, Frank Jorgensen, son.

Archie Rutherford presented  them with a silver tray and silver tea service from the family  an electric frying pan arid  planter from those present. Refreshments were,, served from  a beautifully appointed table  ceritered with a wedding cake  made and decorated by Mrs.  Hazel Skyte.

His talk on "The Oxygen  Layer" was full of garden wisdom; the three essentials for  growth, of soil, air and moisture. The feeding of the root%-  system; the value of green manures and seaweed; epsom salts  to provide the magnesium  lacking in*our coastal graderis;  also how to correct or create  acid soils.

Dr. Inglis* carried on practice  until his retirement about 1946  when the work was taken over  by his sons, Hugh and Allan,  ori their return from war ser-,  vice.  The coining ofi Dr. Inglis certainly effected : a great improvement in the medical situation, but 'the gain was not  limited to that. He and his  wife -were to become very active in community affairs,  school board, i;co-operatives,  tennis, music, etc. This sort of  community service has since  been carried on by his children. ^  As a result of efforts initiated by the Farmers' Institute a  service by the Victorian Order  of Nurses was.inaugurated in  1937, and continued until late  into the '50s, when the work  was in part taken over by the  Provincial Health service.  By the late 1920s the area  close to the Gibsons wharf had  become fairly well built up;  true, quite a number of the  houses were of the "summer  shack" category, and many  continued to be used principally as summer places; but quite  a number of permanent residents had also moved in, and  tlie business centre was growing.  However, access roads continued to be perhaps merely  a mark on the map, ob at best  a trail that might or might not "  be passable to a team and wagon, or to trie somewhat new .  vehicle that was beginning to  . be seen, a motor truck.

Mr. Winn's original sugges- y  tion, ,1 understand, was to include DistrictYLots; 685 arid 686-'.*?;  in the -v prppcMsed villager How- s  ever, the opposition T was sufficiently forceful that; iri order  to get action it filially becanie  necessary to leave but much  of the original plan; and to cut  down to a parcel Of land being  roughly, the easterly. 60 acres  of District Lot 686^ After much  work this was finalized, and  the organization-of The Corporation of The Villkge if Gibsons Landing was gazetted  April 29, 1929.  In connection with the gazetting, an amusing bit of technical stuff later showed up. The  narrie' "Gibson's Landing" had  always  been spelled with   an  " apostrophe. When the King's  Printer set up; the work for  the Gazette he omitted that apostrophe. Therefore the proper  official name of the. Village became one without the apostrophe.  I had my attention drawn  at one time to a grievious error, wheri in a communication  to Victoria, I from long habit;  used the apostrophe. The sage  at the Parliament Buildings  /lost no time in letting me  know I was wrong, ancl had  hot used the correct name. So,  maybe,   I learn a bit  all the  *tirne. Some time later the Ipcal  Board of Trade made representations to the Post Office authorities  in Ottawa, and as, a  /result the word "Landing" was  dropped from tlie mailing address. So it is now the Village  of   Gibsons  Landing,  mailing  . address.��� Gibsons, (no apostrophe).  A provisional Board of Commissioners had been appointed  composed of W.W. Winn, S.A.  Holland and Miss Flora Jack.  Miss . Jack acted as Clerk.  These met and arranged for  ���village elections to beheld as  soon as possible. This was  done in May, and the elected  Commissioners were W.W.  Winn, DrT F. Inglis, , and  George Cooper, the Rev. P.C.  Parker being appointed clerk,  treasurer, collector, etc.  Opening up of roads and  lanes was badly needed, but  the - rriost immediately urgent  problem was a domestic water  supply. This was taken in  hand, a source of spring water  located, larid 'purchased, arid  work of installation of pumps,  tanks, pipe-lines, etc., begun.  There was very little money  available, so work was slow;  however, it did go forward,  and by 1935 water was available to every property in the  village. - \  Some improvemerit was  gradually being effected in the  road situation^ Meantime area's  adjacent to Village boundaries  were without any adequate water service, some had private  wells or springs, some had no  water at all. They had no  funds, and being unorganized  had little means of getting any.  The Village began to supply  water service to some of the  badly needed cases, but the  water lines installed ; were  quite inadequate for any reasonably satisfactory and dependable service.  After  several   years  discussion, pro and con, a solution  was found in the inclusion of  the balance of District Lot 686,  and all of 685, into'the Village.  It was then financially possible to  install   more  adequate  water mains.   This- amalgamation was effected in 1950, thus  after more than 20 years bringing about the fruition. of the  original proposals by Mr. Winn  Water  service seems/to have  been    the   urgent   need   that  sparked much of the work, but  at the same time this wa3 being carried forward some Work  was being done in opening up  and surfacing of roads, beach  improvement, street lighting,  etc.  (To1 be  Continued)  gnciasr speaks  at Sechelt  Some 40 to 50 persons turned out to hear Hon.
