Firstly, we should like,to  thank all those who came 'out  and exercised their democratic  privilege _of voting, > regardless  of which way they voted.  We should like to thank the  Kiwanis club and the local merchants who supported the referendum in a paid advertisement;  the two local newspapers for  their very responsible and unbiased approach to the matter;  the local Parent Teacher association, which undertook a  telephone Get Out ' and Vote  campaign and organized transportation for those who needed  it; the Sechelt Teachers' association for expressing its support and actively assisting the  trustees at the public meetings;  the Vancouver Sun for, giving  us permission to use the Peterson cartoon on our brochures  and posters and in the newspaper advertisements; the  radio stations which broadcast  reminders about the referendum on their public-service programs; and, of course, the  deputy returning officers and  poll clerks who spent a long  and, in some cases, dull' 12  hours on polling day.,  Most of all, we must thank  those owner-electors who felt  able to change their No votes  to Yes votes in the interval between the rejected Referendum  _7y andythe^ confirmed.

Gibsons null rate 18.92  Gibsons 7 municipal mill rate  for taxation purposes shows a  slight rise over that ol last, year.  For this year it will be 18.92.  Last year it was 18.71.  There is an overall increase  in the total taxation mill rate  of two mills, to cover an iri-.  , crease in school taxation which  will be 25.64 mills this year  compared to 23.64 last year.  The Hospital Improvement District mill rate has dropped as  much as the village rate has  increased. This year: it will be  1.44 mills and last year it was  1.64 mills. v  The municipal mill rate was  set at Monday night's meeting:  Of Gibsons council in the Municipal hall when the bylaw for  levying rates and the budget bylaw were given final readings  and passed.  Leaving aside revenue which  has to be turned over to the  school board amounting tO' $60,-  000 and the hospital tax of $3,245  the village will collect for its  own use $82,922. Of this amount  provincial government grants  will provide $30,160, federal  government post office grant in  lieu, of taxes, $565, and B.C.  Hydro and B.C. Telephone tax  payments of $864.

Council will dip into its surplus to add $4,119 to revenues-  so it can cover expenditures to- .  tailing $82,922. Such expenditures will cover public works,  general government, protection  to persons, fire, recreation, sanitation and other^ departments.  Last year's budget totalled $81,-  136.  The waterworks department,  a self-liquidating operation separate from general municipal  operation expects to finish up  the year with a surplus of about  $250. Revenue is expected to  reach $23,256 with $18,500 coming from water bills. On the expenditure side nearly $5,000 v  goes to paying off debenture  debt with $7,500 for administration, billing, maintenance and  operation and $11,000 being added to the capital fund.  \ There will be temporary port-  -.; able classrooms in use at Gib-  ijsons Elementary school and  vElphinstone Secondary school  ,;this fall. This is ^unavoidable,  due to the delay caused by the  ioriginal rejection of the referendum in December. We do not  know, yet, whether,,or. not the  tenders for the work covered  by Referendum 8 will be within  the amounts approved by Victoria, or whether,, once, again,  it will, be necessary for some  part of the proposed program  to be sacrificed, in order to finance the balance. Nor do we  know how soon it may be necessary to present Referendum  No. 9 to the owner-electors,  nor how big it will be.  In the meantime, however,  the Board repeats its thanks, on  behalf of all the school-children  of School District No. 46, to  everyone concerned" with the  confirmation of Referendum 8.  ���Peter C. Wilson, secretary-  treasurer.  SECOND SISTER DIES  The death was reported in  Vancouver of the second of the  three Doherty sisters who lived  on the Hopkins side of the Granthams bridge. Mary Agnes Wells  Doherty died on April 30.  The Coast News second annual spelling bee for students  of elementary schools was run  off Wednesday night of last  week ~ in Sechelt's Elementary  school activity hall with Pamela !- Gross, a Sechelt grade  six girl the winner and Can-  dace Campbell, a Gibsons grade  six girl coming second.  This-; year the grade seven  classes were included which resulted in 31 students taking  part under direction of Principal  W. L. Reid. Last year 19 took  part with Valerie Johnson of  Langdale: school being the winner and Jim Burns.of Gibsons  school coming second. The win-  ned won $10 and the runner-up  $5. .  Following the spelling bee Mr.  Reid expressed his thanks for  giving the students a chance , to  take part in the following letter:  ^iMay lyiakev this . opportunity:  on : behalf of the; students and  schools of the district to thank  you for your kindness, once  a^ain, for sponsoring our Spelling Bee.  I know that the importance  of good spelling is one that you  feel, understandably, is of great  importance, and I feel that the  challenging competition and interest displayed by the children  did much to bring this to the  surface to promote this theme.  All in all, it was a most enjoyable evening and one now  the children almost expect, and  certainly look forward to as an  annual event. In other words,  they are quite prepared now to  get themselves in training for  next year's contest, and I think:  perhaps this is what you had in  mind. ��� W. L. Reid, Principal.

Surplus melting away  First Festival Saturday  All countdowns are complete  and everything is go for the  Sunshine Coast's first Spring  Festival Saturday. The choirs,  orchestra and band of the Elementary/ schools- of Sechelt  School District will be featured  in a ?-hour fantasy, the Coast  Traveller starting at 2 p.m. in  Elphinstone auditorium.  The narrator will be Gordon  Jngl*s of the C.B.C. who will be  remembered with pleasure by  Cibsons choir from their March  broadcast as a member of the  Songtime team. \  Mr. Les Peterson has provid-,  ed local and historical data for  the script. The Sechelt Residential School band and dancers  will also be taking part and assistance will be given by mem-  ��\ni��Minraiu��-ranin��.nnMiBn��raiuuimMiramniB bers    of   the North Kamloops  School band. The Kamloops  band with their director Art  Smith will play for Elphinstone  students on Thursday afternoon  and return from Powell River  on Saturday in time to join in  the festival fun.  Children from outlying  schools such as Vancouver Bay  up Jervis Inlet, Irvings Landing and Egmont and Bowen Island are all coming to Gibsons  to take part in the concert.  Admission to the concert is  free  OFF TO SEATTLE  Prize winners from th Gibsons Elementary School Science  Fair in February are setting  out on the first ferry Thursday  ehroute for a day at the Science  Centre   in   Seattle.  Sechelt's Municipal surplus  which stood at $30,000 at the  end of 1964 is now down to  about $12,000 as the result of  lumping $15,000 of the surplus  in this year's budget. If the  village proceeds with a new  municipal hall this year this  surplus could be wiped out.  While this information did not  come out of last week's meeting of council when the 1966  budget, in order to reach a  balance with expenditure, added $15,000 from the surplus,  it did reveal that the surplus,  was being depleted.  . This surplus has been built  up over the years from excess  revenues and at December 31,  19G3 it was $25,637 plus an ed-  ded $4,454 surplus from that  year's operations bringing it up  to the $30,091.  Last year some $15,000 was  added to the budget from surplus but was not used except  for about $1,300. The unused  portion was returned to revenue surplus. This year $15,000 is  being added to the budget and  will apparently be used for various capital expenditures, such,  as the park building, road paving, sewer ditch construction  and other items.  The 1964 budget totalled $20,-  434. The 1965 budget was $44,-  250 and this year's budget will  be $56,717 and if the council  decides to go ahead with the  building a new municipal hall  what is left in the surplus account will most likely be absorbed in initial costs of this  project.  The municipal mill rate has  remained stationary at 10 mills  for almost all the years Sechelt  has been an incorporated muni  cipality but whether this rate  can be maintained without any  surplus to bolster budget financing will be another question.  Discussion of the municiiyl  budget does not take into consideration rising school taxation and if the school board can  hold the line with its budgets  for the next few years it will  be the result of considerable  paring.  This year's school tax will be  25.64 and the Hospital Improvement District tax 1.44 which  along with the Sechelt tax of  10 mills will mean a mill rate  of 37.09.  PUC hearing  All is set for the Public Utilities commission hearing Monday morning starting at 10:45 in  Gibsons municipal hall. The  hearing will be concerned with  the application of Norman  Procknow to have village water  supplied to his 20 suite Sunnycrest Motel on the highway outside the village municipal boundary.  Colin McQuarrie, legal representative of tho Union of British  Columbia Municipalities will  represent Gibsons council at  the hearing. Council members  are greatly concerned with the  ruling which may come from  the PUC some time after the  hearing.  C OF C MEETING  A dinner meeting will be held  by Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce Monday evening starting at 6:45 pjn. in the  Welcome Cafe dining room.

Unify in fhe Community gets things done  The school referendum  The school district plebiscite 'votes last Thursday cost the  public almost one dollar apiece. It needs about $1,000 to set up the  plebiscite organization to give the populace the democratic right  to express their feelings. Members of the board would have been  quite happy if the cost of each vote had been reduced by having  at least 2,500 turn out.  Based on a superficial examination of the list of possible voters, at least 4,500 could have marked their x in the place made  available for them but democracy being what it is no One can be  forced to express an opinion at the polls. There are plenty of  places for them to offer verbal opinions but when it comes to  marking the ballot there is a blind spot. I  But there were 1,033 people who felt they had a duty to per-,  form by marking their ballot, which was an increase of 31 over  last year. To again refer to the expense,Of ballotting two plebiscites  have cost something like $2,000 of taxpayers' money to get sufficient of them to take part in their chief democratic right ��� a vote.  Hours were spent in preparing for the day when the voters could  wield a pencil in a polling booth and mark a simple x on a piece  of paper. Those hours of labor have not been added to the cost.  It should be pleasing to the school board to note that the favorable votes were scattered over the entire school district with the  exception of the Pender Harbour area, excluding Irvines Landing  which produced five votes for and four against compared to ten  against last year. # i - j  Areas increasing the yes vote were Port Mellon, Langdale, Gibsons Rural, Roberts Creek, Davis Bay, Sechelt, West Sechelt,  Madeira Park, Irvines Landing, Egmont: and Nelson Island.  An effort to analyze the vote based on last year's Gibsons  Village vote is difficult because last year's vote was 238 in favor  and 131 against, and this year 201 in favor and 62 against. Last  year 369 votes were cast at Gibsons Village polls, the municipal hall  and the school board office and this year only 263 voted at the lone  poll, the municipal hall. ' !  It was expected in Thursday's vote Gibsons would be strongly  in favor but the result was there were 106 less votes than last  year. Gibsons had the greater gain from the result of a favorable  vote. Gibsons Rural area took up some of the slack. This year the  total vote was 190 and last year 146 and in Thursday's vote the  yes vote was increased by 52.  While the vote has been successful there remains the aftermath  which arises as a result of the shifting trends on costs. In looking  over the referendum, one commentator remarked it appeared possible for the school board to finish up with having to spend money  for the school board office on construction work associated with  classrooms.  For the future Victoria officials might decide in view of the  affluent society in which we are living in British Columbia that  there should be an escalation clause in future referenda which  would allow boards to revise their costs from week to week, if such  need arises. Inflation increases numbers and decreases values.  Our next referendum should automatically contain a 10 percent increase in costs. It might be necessary!  THE COAST NEWS  19 YEARS AGO  The May Day committee at  Pender Harbor is busy lining  up a big day for May 24 when  a May Queen will be crowned.  Candidates are May 'Zertz, Bonnie Harris, Marilyn Harris and  Barbara Davidson.  Here are some real estate  quotations in advertisements:  Pender Harbor, 5-room house,  4 lots, $7,500; Halfmoon Bay  waterfront lots $450 and up;  West Sechelt, large waterfront  lots $729; Selma Park, 4-room  house, good beach, $2,400.  A new road, a continuation of  Fletcher road has been opened  up, meeting Sechelt Highway  opposite St. Vincent's church.  A VON auxiliary was organized at Roberts Creek and Mrs.  R. J. Eades was elected president by acclamation. Mrs. E.  J. Shaw is vice-president.  Sixteen-and-a-half acres beside Hotel lake were offered for  sale by Mae Reid of Pender  Harbor for $500 cash.  E. H. Herrdn was named  manager of Elphinstone Co-op  store replacing Frank Bailey.  K: J. Darius took over the Elphinstone bakery.  By ERIC THOMSON  On Thursday afternoon before  Good Friday, the mile-long line  of cars was being expertly and  impersonally eased on board  the Langdale Queen, bumper to  bumper, as their owners made  for Easter holidays on the Sunshine Coast. That picture  brought back one of a generation ago, when the Lady Alexander, flagship of the Howe  Sound service of Union Steamships Company of B.C., fresh  from her annual overhaul, carried everybody and their animals to West Howe Sound Landings on an extra-special Thursday night trip.- It was crowded  but comfortable, and by the  time we were level with Ambleside, the atmosphere was that  of one big party as friends met  friends whom they had not seen  since last Labor Day.  *      *     * '  The captain was Harry Lawrence Yates. In those days the  ships' officers went to the dining room for their mug up after  they got clear of Vancouver  Harbor, and Captain Yates'  progress towards his refreshment on this occasion was quite  a procession, as he was greeted affectionately by young and  old. He was aquiet, shy gentleman, and while he had the dig-,  nity of his position, he mixed  on the easiest terms with his  passengers, as well he could,  as he. was the friend and confidant of the queer assortment  of regulars on the Howe Sound  run. . ���      '  One of these regulars, now a  long-time resident of West Howe  Sound; to whom I applied for  information for this article,  said the company is no more,  the ships are broken up or  sold to the Greeks, the captains,  most of them, are dead and  the rest of the crews scattered  over the seven seas. She could  have added that even the flag  under which they served is no .  longer officially recognized.  But before the steamboat era  on West Howe Sound has been  completely ' forgotten, an ac-.  count of it, and its ships and  men, from one who was part of  it at both ends and in the middle, may be of interest.  3f- 5(- 5J- ��  Captain Yates died in Feb-  . ruary of this year, and his ashes  were committed to Manson's  Deep, off 'Vancouver, and in  the Vancouver Sun last February was a fitting obituary  written by Mr. Charles M. De-  fieux, its marine editor, from  which it appears that Welsh-  born Captain Yates went to sea  at the early age of nine in Nelson's one-time flagship Indefatigable then' a training ship in  the Mersey, and spent years  before the mast with famous  British companies all over the  world, and came to Vancouver  in 1907.  After deepTsea experience  which would have satisfied most  men for life, Yates, A.B., signed on as quartermaster with  the Union Steamships and got  his master's ticket in 1913, and  embarked on a whole new sea  life on the quiet waters of Howe  Sound.  The flagship of that section  of the company's service was  the Lady Alexandra and she  was his summer command on  the Bowen Island run, but we  knew him in the Lady Evelyn, ���  Lady Pam, Lady Rose, Comox  and Capilano. Perhaps it was  in command of the Capilano,  affectionately known as the  Cap, on the winter run that he  was best known to West Howe  Sounders.  5js 3J_ ?$��  One marine writer, in an  article on the B.C. coast service, described the Capilano as  a fussy, pot-bellied little tub  that wallowed up and down'  Howe Sound. The publication  of this libel brought instant and  vitriolic letters of complaint  from passengers and Howe  Sound residents who had light  fingers on pen and shot-gun,  and Paddy Farina, the volatile  Irish Free State Chief Engineer  of the Cap threatened to carve  the spancil line around the  corpse of that writer.  To give him his due, that  gentleman, from his thus enlarged knowledge then wrote a  masterly account of his service  of   the   Capilano,   her   officers  and crew, year in^ year out, in  Howe Sound, paying particular  tribute to Paddy Farina's self-  imposed taik of carrying the  new babies ashore.  This was about the time we  came into the picture. We camped at Hopkins Landing in the  late 1920's, and built our present home there in 1930, delighted to find that it was possible to enjoy week-ends there  right on through the winter.  ��� My wife and I used to come  up on the first Friday of every  month, and we usually travelled with Captain Yates,J and,  -although we got to know him  very well, he never mentioned  his years of service over the  seven seas. Strange to say, my  clearest recollections of Captain Yates have him shrouded in  fog. . y  One Friday morning, we came  over on the usual ferry from  our North Vancouver home in  such a thick fog that we landed at Vancouver long after the  9 a.m. departure time for the  Union ships. We knew that they  hadn't left, for \we knew their  various whistles, so we made  our way along the C.P.R. tracks  from the Ferry Dock to the  Union Dock. The fog was so  thick, that I, who was.in the  lead, walked into the rear end  of a box car, and my anguished cuss-words didn't shift that  fog one particle.  * *       *  We didn't have to buy tickets,  probably because we were using return halves, but when  we got out on the dock, even  the sea-gulls were grounded.  From the far end of the dock  came the ghostly voices of ah  unseen Captains' conference,  which ended in Captain Yates  decision Let's Go. In a few  minutes we were under way,  and the Capilano inched out of  the harbor and along the West  shore.  We were off Point Atkinson  about noon, when suddenly, as  if emerging from a tunnel, the  Capilano came out of the fog  into blue skies and brilliant  sunshine. It was now so late  that Captain Yates decided to  go the other way round, by calling at Port Mellon first and  ending up at Gibsons Landing, -  and after what we had been  through the trip was like a  picnic. It also happened that  one the previous day I had  successfully defended the purser in court on some claim made  against him, and that moved  him to stand us our lunch, and  the meals on the Cap were of  the best.  * *     *  The Union for some years  had a puddle-duck named the  Comox, a tiny and uncomfortable craft, but plenty big  enough for the scanty winter  traffic on West Howe Sound.  The Dominion of Canada steamship inspectors deemed that it  was unsafe for the Comox to  venture out into the Gulf pf  Georgia. in winter, so the , Sunday evening pick-up by her -  from the various landings concluded with her making a ren-  dezous off Gospel Rock out  from Gibsons Landing with one  or other of the two-funnelers  in-bound from the north.  _ One winter Sunday night there  was a thick fog, and our Comox  was very late in getting around  to Gibsons Landing, and she  still had to make contact with  her big sister out in the Gulf.  The company's executive hadn't  figured on the ship from the  north being fog-bound all the  way down the coast, and there  was no way of getting word  from her or to her, so Captain  Yates took the Comox out  through Shoal Channel to the  approximate meeting-place and  gave a few experimental toots  on her penny-whistle, without  response, so decided to make  for Vancouver. He made it all  right, but it was slow work  but the marvel of it was how  the Captain and his men diagnosed the angle and strength  of the various whistles and foghorns on that 20-mile nightmare.  There was one occasion when  all Captain Yates' whistling  didn't do him any good, and  that took place right in front  of our house at Hopkins Landing. There was a heavy fog,  solid, but shallow, out in front  and   we   heard   the   Capilano  make her slow way round'  Soames Point, bound for the  Hopkins wharf. When she got in  front of our house, she stuck,  and there ensued prolonged  hots like Leviathan in -labor,  and I came to the conclusion  that Captain Yates was trying  to get an echo from the freight  shed on.the wharf. Then, to my  surprise, I saw the top of the  Capilano's mast showing, above  the,fog, and I saw that as she  was on the diagonal of the wharf  shed, the echo went off at an  angle; I got my bagpipes, and  sent forth a few Scotch notes  of Westering Home towards the  troubled steamer. The chuckles  from the deep followed by a  series of short toots on the.  whistle indicated that the impromptu aid to navigation had  been heard and understood.  Captain Yates was of a quiet  and retiring disposition, but one  winter night on West Howe  Sound I heard him make the  most startling announcement of  my experience. There were  just two or three of us waiting  for the Capilano at the end of  Hopkins wharf, and the only  light was from, the postmaster  Percy Cambourne's oil lantern.  The steamer, crept in to the  wharf and just as the' ropes  Went but, Captain Yates, from  the wing of the bridge, said  quietly: "Word is coming on  the .7 radio that the Japanese  have bombed the American  Fleet at. Pearl Harbor, and  have sunk most of it. Come into  my cabin and hear what is coming through." We did, and as  the hysterical reports overlapped, those of us listening in had  memories of: Dunkirk, Hong  Kong and Singapore^ and this  grave news meant that now we  were not alone. -  With the    post-war    develop-.,  ment   of   aeroplane   and   ferry>���  travel,    the    Union Steamships  found  that  it  could  no longer  compete, arid finally in the early 7  1950's abandoned. 1:0 the ferries c  the shadow .service that it had  maintained~'from Vancouver by  way of Bowen Island to Gibsons, :  and  the  Capilano  is     now     a  breakwater at Elk Falls on Vancouver : Island... Molliter   ossa  cumbent. And, with,the passing  of her captain, an: era came to  an end, but it was. fun while it  lasted! '������;  N.

They  were apparently written to or  by a Quebec provincial registrar and in one he asked who  was responsible for putting  locks on- the office of the registrar.

Judy V. La-  Marsh, secretary of state during a recent house of commons  question period: Salaries cost  $8,165,881, rentals $1,571,118,  stationary $5,277, publicity $227  arid printing of election material  and other printing, $3,166,685  making a total of $12,909,189.  This is what money the governmental organization spent and  does not take into consideration individual election expenses, advertising and the  general ballyhoo.  Ancient automobiles representing some of the most glamourous years in the automotive  age have been entered in the  Vintage era run July 2 to 9,  , a special event planned by the  Canadian. Confederation Centennial Committee of British  Columbia. Applications to join  the run will be accepted until  May 15. Only 30 cars will be  chosen to make the run which  starts at New Westminster at  9 a.m.,,July 2, and ends at .  Victoria after a swing through  the interior of the province.  Oldest car registered so far  is a 1905, 10 h.p. Stanley Steamer, owned by Gerald Wellburn  of Duncan. Mr. Wellburn has  also applied to enter a 1910-  Russell' touring car, built by  CCM, and a 1911 Mitchell speedster.. Among other notable cars  whose owners have applied for ^  entry are a 1929 Cord Cabriolet,  1929 Hupmobile 8, 1828 Whippet,  1927 Chevrolet, and a 1931 La  France fire truck.  . Owners of vintage cars who  would like to take the tour are  invited to apply for application  forms to the Canadian Cbnfed-  erationyCentennial Committee,  Parliament Buildings, Victoria,  or to the co-ordinator of the  run, Frank Appelbe, Suite 7,  5860 Tisdall Street, Vancouver.  Response to an advertisement  by Columbia Cellulose which  ran in a few papers across  western. Canada brought close  to 3,000 replies. Columbia Cellulose is looking for more than,.  200 people to operate the $80  million kraft mill project under  construction at Prince Rupert.  The company is avoiding the  practice of raiding other mills  for trained personnel by trying  to train its own.  ,. As indicated in The Mammals  of British Columbia, mammals  have not aroused quite as much  popular interest as the birds.  They are more secretive creatures, more often active during  the poorly lighted parts of the  day, and, for the most part,  live lives in.which the sense.of/,  smell v is the most1 important'  contact with the world around  them.  Man is one of the few mam-,  mals with an indifferent capacity to smell things, and is in  fact a visual creature. He thus  finds in birds a group also dependent largely upon sight and  sound for life's contacts. The  brilliant colors, elaborate courtship behavior, and ��� obtrusive or  pleasing sounds and songs of  the birds so readily appreciated by us are not found among  the mammals generally. Then,  too, the birds are trusting, crea- r  tures, secure in their ability to  leave rapidly by flight should  the  occasion ���demand.  Birds can be enjoyed casually and even without any particular effort; their observation  can be part of mass outings.  Not so the mammals; to know  even a small part of them requires more care and devotion,  more purposeful study in an atmosphere different from the  average bird-watcher's field-  day.  ��N^��rsAi^*^rf^AAiA1^w*wrJ  A Coat of Arms stamp, 14th  and final release in a pre-cen-  tennial floral emblem series inaugurated in 1964 to honor the  provinces and territories, will  be released on the 30th June  1966, the eve of Canada's 99th  birthday, Postmaster General  Jean-Pierre Cote announces.  The stamp, a logical conclusion to the floral emblem series,  is issued by the Canada Post  Office as a symbolic tribute to  the Cainadian geographic entity,  Mr. Cote stated. It has as its  design a blue reproduction. of  the Coat of Amis, to the right  of which, in bright red, is the  eleven-pointed Maple Leaf of  the National Flag.  Canada's official Coat of  Arms dates from a proclamation by His Majesty, King  George V on November 21,  1921. It shows the Royal Arms  of England, Scotland and Ireland and those of France above,  three Maple Leaves which are  similar to those incorporated in  Armorial Ensigns, granted Quebec and Ontario in 1868 by Her  Majesty Queen Victoria. The  Coat of Arms includes the British Lion holding the Union  Jack and the Unicorn holding  the French Fleur de Lis. At  the base appears the Canadian  motto: A Mari usque ad mare  or From Sea to Sea.  In the announcement,' the  Postmaster General also indicated that the total isue of 24  million stamps will be printed  by the Canadian Bank Note  Company, Ottawa, whose staff  created and engraved the design by the steel line intaglio  process.

(  Are you above or below the national Canadian average?  To find out, you can take a test right in your own living room  on Thursday, May 19 when CBC television presents the Canadian  Drivers Test.  The hour-long program consists of a series of driving situations  in which judgment, skill and knowledge of traffic rules must be  used correctly to come out of each situation with the right solution ��� and without an accident.  You can grade yourself along with thousands of other Canadian  motorists by filling out an official test form during the program.  Test forms are being distributed from coast to coast by the Canadian Highway Safety Council to various employers, service clubs  and'safety organizations. Shell Service station is handling distribution for Gibsons area.  Yvonne Stanley, Dorothy and  Sharon Fraser, Maria Schneider  and three Beatle types Shelly  Benson, Joanne Jorgenson and  Suzanne Thomas all contributed,  their talents. The program ended with songs by the Gibsons  Guides.  The Guides and'Brownies are  an impressive sight when they  are all together some 130 strong.  Mrs. A. Labonte Divisional  Commissioner appealed for  more adult help in all branches  of Guiding. If the Guide program is to reach its full potential individual packs and  companies must be kept to not  more then 2u girls. This has  produced the best result judging by the unprecedented number of six Gold Cord Guides  from one company in one year.  This is a provincial record as  well as a local one.  Gibsons Guide company now  numbers 36 with fly-ups due  again in the fall. The two Gibsons Brownie Packs are also  far above a workable complement. This situation is not fair  to either the girls or the leaders  as it quickly becomes a sort of  glorified baby sitting, which is  frustrating to everyone. So if  you likfi^children and like having fuii'pwont you please come  and help, you'll find it a rewarding experience.  The Girl Guide Association is  grateful for the help of Royal  Canadian Legion Branch 109  and the ladies. Auxiliary for the  use of their hall and the catering for the coffee party. The  Auxiliary Ladies were presented with corsages by the Brownies.

Horse drawn carriages drew up  at Government House and serving men in white hose arid  white wigs handed the arrivals  out of their carriages.  The visitors were dressed in  picturesque styles of 100 years  ago for the Centennial Ball to  commemorate the union of the  Colonies on Vancouver Island  and the mainland. Receiving the  guests in the ballroom were  Governor " General George R.  Pearkes dressed .in a handsome  court dress of the last century  and Mrs. Pearkes wearirig a  green velvet dress with appliqued dogwood flowers.  There were crinolines, bustles,  poke bonnets and even pantalettes trimmed with lace. One exquisite blue velvet dress was  overlaid with Irish crochet and  another gown was reputed to  have 185 hooks, eyes and snap  fasteners.  Several replicas of Florence  Nightingale with her lamp proved to be, most appropriately,  members of the St. John's Ambulance. There were admirals  and Jack Tar's who might have  stepped straight off Nelson's  flagship and there was a jester,  complete with bells, and a shepherd dressed in a linen smock.  Indians, both genuine and  make believe, were magnificent  in all the glory of feathers and  beaded costumes. Some of the  loveliest costumes had been  made for the film Song of Norway parts bf which had been  filmed on Vancouver Island.  The grand march around the  ball room was led by a piper.  Then, in an atmosphere of  friendly informality came old-  time dancing with music by a  military band in uniforms of an  earlier day. In the dining room,  with its beautiful needlepoint  chairs, refreshments were served by maids in old fashioned  mob caps and lace aprons.  Guests at the ball included  Capt. and Mrs. Sam Dawe,  Magistrate and Mrs. Andy  Johnston, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley  B. Hodgson and Mr. and Mrs.  Sam Fladager.

In 1929, in an effort to give  the native people of the Far  North a new source of livelihood, a herd of 3000 reindeer  ��� an animal not native to Canada ��� was selected in Alaska,  by A. E. Porsild. The drive to  Canada, under a Lapp herder  from Norway assisted by-several other Lapps and Eskimo,  began immediately. They reached Canadian territory in 1933  and arrived at their destination on the east side of the  Mackenzie River delta in March  1935. There were 2370 animals  in the herd after the six-year  trek. An area of 6600: square  miles was set aside as a reserve and buildings were erected for the station staff and  equipment. Less than 20 years  after its arrival, when the herd  had increased to 7600, although  more than this number had  been used for meat and skins,  the reserve was enlarged lo-  17,900 square miles.

Sam Dawe, Mr. Francis  Stone  arid Mr.' David Hayward.  An impressive service was  held at Which Bishop Godfrey  N. Gower presented his charge  to a crowded Christ Church  cathedral. The congregation included some 85 clergy and 170  lay delegates.  The first sitting of the synod  at' St. John's, Shaughnessy passed these resolutions. among  others: a stewardship campaign  for every parish to assist the  clergy in all phases of church  work; increase the minimum  stipend of a priest to $3,600  per year, plus car and housing;  remove all discriminatorysbars  against women in the appoint- .  ment to office in the work of  the church.  Mr. Stone considered that if  these had been any doubt about  the advisability of having the  ladies in synod, such: doubts  would surely have been dispelled by the report of Miss  Marilyn Fane, director of christian education, who, gave*an  impressive report of her work  with committees on leadership,  youth, camping, study groups,  etc.     y._  Discussion followed about the  old St. Mary's Hdspital building at Garden Bay which is being used as a conference site,  are obstacles to it being a practical  project,   but  it   was   emir  KEN'S WELDING  & EQUIPMENT  NORTH ROAD ��� GIBSONS  Ph.  886-3378  ��� ARC & GAS WELDING  ��� PORTABLE WELDER  ��� MACHINE SHOP  ��� 100 TON HYD.

Another important decision  was the acceptance of principles of union between the  Anglican and United Churches  of Canada. However, the bishop  admitted that if the United  Church accepts the principles  as laid down by the committee  of 10, it will be evidence of a  great deal of generosity on their  part. ;.  .

Some years ago this advertisement appeared in a paper in  the town in which I lived. I'  ariswered the advertisement iri  this way: You are dissatisfied  with life because you have not  discovered your purpose. You  have been made by God for a  certain purpose and until you  find it and. submit to God's will  you will never be satisfied.  Briefly I outlined what God  had done through Jesus Christ  to reconcile those who had left  God out of their lives and to  forgive the sins which had  separated God and man, and  invited the young man to visit  me if he thought I could help.  A week later a stranger called  to see me ��� the unknown advertiser ��� asking me to help  him. We talked together and  this young man, with life ahead  of him, asked God to forgive  his sins, asked God to make  him one of His children and  accepted God's direction for his  life.  Are you seeking something?  Is your life complete? It never  will be until you fulfill the purpose for which God created  you ���- find it in Him. ��� Rev.
