 Provirio.i:a.ly Library 9  Victoriay 8.   C��  ;,'=,v,.  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number ,47,  Dec.  6,  1967.'  10c per copy  B  Money with which to construct  the long-awaited bypass from  Langdale ferry terminal to the  Sunshine Coast highway beyond  Gibsons will be in this year's  provincial government budget.  This was learned by the Coast  News' from sources in Victoria.  On this basis it is expected that  work on the bypass will be beginning early next spring.  In the meantime there is a  growing protest over the report  the bypass wild cut across Elphinstone school and Brothers  Memorial Park grounds. So far  there has /been nothing official  along this line. There have been  various survey teams crisscrossing the area and protests  have been made by people who  objected to them traversing  their property. 7 The highways  department maihtainihg its understandable silence has offered no clues as to what is going  on. Roads departments gener:  ally remain silent about where  a road is- to be placed until the  property has been tied up.  The following letter written to  Hon:   Phil  Gaglardi,  provincial  minister of highways was also  sent to Hon: Isabel Dawson, district school trustees, the press,  trustees of Brothers Memorial  Park1 and Giibsons Kiwanis club.  I am a former student of Elphinstone Secondary School,  Gibsons^ May I say first, that  schoipls':heed7more land for physical educationi and recreational  -^gani^r^ElphihstOnes' has little  ; enough ���jland as 7 it is/arid it  seems there is a possibility that  there \yill be even less. The  school needs all the land they  have for track and field train-'  ing from which may come future, athletes of Canaidia.  Now there is a crew from  your department surveying this  school land. ������! understand that  this is one proposed route for  a new highway. If there are alternate routes being considered,  I am asking on behalf of the  Elphinstone students that the  school land be excluded from  any highway proposals.  Secondly this proposed route  goes through Brothers Memorial Park. This Park is ideal for  young children to play on. Why  take this park away, when there  are many, many miles of unused land? Using this land  would not only save school property for students, park land  for children, but would bypass  congested community areas,  thereby keeping traffic from  the ferries' moving smoothly.  I am a young person, being  only 19 years old. I did not finish high school, but I feel very  strongly that students need all  the area they can get for outdoor recreation and physical  education.  Thank you for your time.  Please give this some thought.  ���Pamela  Jackson,  R.R. 1, Sechelt.

Salt v/ater and considerable  debris crossed the highway  creating daniage and it is expected continued damage will  be created by high tides until  the stoririy. weather passes.  In Gibsons area homes around  the   bay   suffered   some   water  encroachment due to the extreme hightide reported to be  about 19 feet at its !;peak. :Wind  did some damage to rooftops  and the Women's Institute was  one   of  the  buildings  receiving  ' some     damage.

An  SOS was sent out early Tuesday  for beachcombers to start log  rescue  work.  .A good many beaches suffered washouts and log piling with  heavy waves buffetted by cross  winds creating havoc. Davis  Bay received the full brunt of  the heavy wind and sea with the  high tide leaving sorne Jiouse-  holders , marodned for a time.  A good many small boats along  the waterfront from Gibsons to  Pender Harbour are among the  missing. Some were saved by  dint of great exertion on the ;  part of  owners  and neighbors.

C  Administration and other general government expenses will  absorb $19,150; protective uses  for fire, building inspection and  street lighting will take $7,500;  and $8,663 for debt charges including the municipal hall payment.  With  $13,300  going  to   public  works,   the   remainder   is   distributed   among   lesser   depart-,  ments  on  municipal   operation.  The waterworks provisional  budget calls for revenue of $28,-  280 with $13,300 going towards  principal and interest on the  recent water service extension  program. Distribution and main  tenance  will cost about  $6,000.  Council at the same special  meeting also gave final reading to the bylaw authorizing  pre-payment of taxes to start  Jan. 1 with a five percent interest being paid on such prepayments.  James Andrew Hope  In Court  Robert B. McLean, aged 20,  was fined $75 on a charge of  driving without due care and attention. Evidence showed he  lost control of his car at the  cemetery ', corner resulting in  injury to himself and passenger and caused $810 damage to  the car.  Randy Boyes was fined $50  for driving without due care  and attention as the result of  an accident involving Joe Higgs  car.  James Andrew Hope, of Hopkins Landing, who passed away  suddenly on Nov.. 20 was born  in Scotland in 1897. He came to  Canada as a young, boy and at  the age of 17 joined the f 11th  Canadian Mounted Rifles to  serve .until 1918 when he was  honorably discharged. At the  age of 20 he went to work on the  B.C. Electric streetcars and after 45 years retired in 1961 with  an accident free record.  Mr. and Mrs. Hope first came  to Hopkins in 1939. Then rented various summer cottages until they purchased the Jubilee  cottage. In 1942 this was sold  and they started to build Rawa-  loki at Soames. Many weekends  and summers were spent by  them and daughter Gloria, now  Mrs. David Fyles, in their boat-  house while awaiting completion of the house. Until Mr.  Hope retired six years ago. every weekend) and spare day was  taken up in making the grounds  around Rawaloki something to  be very proud of. Every rock  and boulder was hand moved in  to.place in the rockeries and after many years of work by both  Mr. and Mrs. Hope the grounds  ..became known as the park.  During the last six years,  when not in the garden, Mr.  Hope became a familiar sight  in his red dinghy chasing the  elusive fish from Langdale to  Soames and spent many evening hours baby-sitting his three  grandchildren   at   Hopkins.  Through determination, Raw-,  aloki became what it is today  and now if the huge task ahead  for Mrs. Hope appears too great  she can only hope there will be  someone willing to take over  the grounds built of sweat,  tears and love will tend Rawaloki ��� Paradise by the Sea,  with  care.

(By MICHAEL WEBSTER)  High winds and torrential  rains wreaked havoc along the  Sunshine Coast Friday, cutting  power and telephone communications.   , ' . '  The Pender Harbour area,  between Halfmoon Bay and  Francis Peninsula, was thrust  into darkness at 3:55 p.m. Friday 7 as the' gale force winds  felled trees across power anc*  telephone lines. Efforts by B.C.  Hydro crews to restore power  were frustrated by further reported breaks behind them, as  they worked their way up the  peninsula. At 8:30, the circuits  were re-opened and the Harbour area experienced no further blackouts.  Ruby Lake and Egmont were  hit the hardest by the weekend  storm. Telephones and power  were cut late Friday and were  not restored until Saturday afternoon.  , Sixteen pole spans were blown  down along Ruby Lake road and  Hydro crews were forced to  abandon their labor as the wind  continued to rip timber out by  the roots.  B.C. Telephone linemen worked round the clock to restore  communications to Egmont, but  were unable to complete the  tack until 3 p.m. Sunday.  Both Hydro and telephone  crews have hours of mopping  up to do; with the main lines repaired, the task of servicing in-:  dividual coriiplairits lies ahead:  B.C. government highway  crews, had their Own headaches  Friday .Trees and debris - blocked the Sunshine Coast Highway  from Halfmoon Bay to: Earl's '  Cove.

Unable to keep up with the  number of reported fellings, the  highways crews cut of sections  of felled trees large enough for  single traffic.  At 71:10 a.m. Saturday, Constable Byrne of the Sechelt  RCMP notified the highways department of a slide blocking the  highway, six miles west of Sechelt. Traffic was detoured by  Redrooffs Road, barely passable  itself because of downed wires.  The main road was re-opened  task until 3 p.m. Sunday.  Gale force winds loosed again  Saturday night to drive the  tides to an unusual high. Pounding waters undermined seawalls and piled logs and rubbish high on the beaches. Small  boats were capsized or had  their windows blown out.  Saturday   night's   blow   confined its damage to the waters 7  and shoreline.

Rumblings from the public  There is something exhilarating in an election of any kind in  which lively competition appears. There are six persons running  for three rural school board seats, three fighting .for the Gibsons  village school board seat, two biattling for the chairmanship of  Gibsons council and three looking for two council seats. Then we  have in the Regional District election 10 seeking four seats on the  Regional District board of directors. In Sechelt two seek the chairmanship and three are aiming at council seats.  This is really something unusual for the Sunshine Coast. There  are 29 nominees in the running to fill 14 seats in four governing  administrations.  Eleven of the nominees have had experience in. the affairs  which they seek to have a hand in for another term. The point that  should be borne in mind is the qualification of the candidates who  have thrown their hats into the electoral ring.  Judging from available information none of the sitting members seeking re-election are facing what can be termed a personal  vendetta Therefore why are so many seeking election in so many  fields at this time?  The public is aroused ��� aroused at rising costs, chiefly. Neither Gibsons nor Sechelt municipal governments nor the Regional  District board are in the position of having increased taxation.  Assessments have been increased by the government, not by the  municipal authorities. The Regional District board so far has not  been involved in any serious expense beyond organization costs.  The school board has been forced to increase its tax rate for  varied reasons and at a greater proportion than any other area  governmental administration. Perhaps that is why nine nominees  have entered the fray to seek election in four school board seats.  An analysis of some of the added costs of education can be  placed right on public advocacy of the appointment of various supervisory school personnel. Now we have some of the public complaining about the costs of education. The'complaint is definitely  not limited to the Sunshine Coast school district. It would appear  to be province-wide and at all education levels.  One should rememiber that with the government setup administering education placing school boards in the unenviable position  of having to finance some of the necessary classroom'addi^ons via  the bank as the result of long-delayed assistance, this should not  be held against school boards. They are faced with the actual  problem and are forced by public demand to do something about  it or el'sie ��� ."'.''  Therefore one should be considerate in giving thought to how  to place one's vote. Anyway make up your mind to vote and then  make up your mind to pick the person whom you think best qualified for the position.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  F. J.

Here are some of them:  On home problems the teacher should try and discover the  student's attitude.      ".:  Increased discipline will .increase dropouts. Discipline  turns the student against the  teacher. Another speaker said  one dropout left because of the  lack of discipline. The remark  that discipline should start in  the home drew spontaneous applause.

School counselling was. termed inadequate by some students!  Better relations should exist  between home  and school.^  Give students the courses they  want.       .������'���������������'.

I took my car to a garage to get it fixed and I could  not pay the repair bill of $100,  so the garage owner wouldn't  let me have the car. My first  question is can he do this? Anyway, he finally did let me take  the car when I gave him a promissory note for the $100.  Well the car broke down again  and I took it back for more repairs. While it was being fixed  up the note fell due and I could  not pay it. The second repair  bill was $150 which I offered him  but he wouldn't let me have the  car till.I paid both bills and  he locked the car and kept the  keys.  I needed the car, so at night,  I went back to the garage with  the wife's key and took the  car, but I shoved the $150 under  his door.

Like human beings,  trees require food; like us they  heed water to drink, like us  , they must have light. Deprive  a tree of food, water, air,  warmth or light and it will  die. Like us, too, trees are  Iborn, grow, reproduce, work,  rest and die of disease, violence  or- old age. Some trees live 20  years and some live for centuries but all eventually die.  Modern forest management  helps to make forests continuously useful by harvesting  trees when they are ripe, by  protecting them from their  enemies and by assuring conditions under which new growth  may continue.

Names do create  A four-man Canadian delegation is attending the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geo graphic  Names in Geneva, Switzerland.  The conference has been called  by the UN secretary-general to  find ways of eliminating the confusion that often surrounds the  names of towns, rivers, mountains, lakes and other geographic features. Canada, which has  had an organization for the  standardization of geographic  names since 1897 and which has  accumulated a great deal of  expertise in this field, is expected to make an important  contribution to the conference.  Among the problems the conference is dealing with are the  following: How to select one  name from several being used  for the same feature; how to obtain general agreement on standardization; how to eliminate  duplication; how to transcribe  names from one language to another, especially where the languages use different alphabets;  and so on.  In Canada, such problems are  being dealt with by the Canadian Permanent Committee on  Geographical Names. Its members are drawn from various  federal government departments  having to do with geography and  history, and a representative  from each of the provinces. The  committee's executive arm, the  secretariat, is a unit of the Federal Department of Energy,  Mines and Resources.  In considering a new name,  12 guiding principles of nomenclature are used. These principles concern names created by  statutory authorities, railroads  and development companies; the  delicate problem of personal  names; the use of French and  English forms of a name; the  spelling of native names; and  several others. Generally, local  usage and preferences are given priority ��� the committee  does not force its choices upon  the inhabitants of a given locality. Problems arise when a single locality is known by two or  more semi-official names.

In Ontario, there are 27 officially recognized Mud Lakes and  another 78 lakes that sometimes  go by the name of Mud Lake.  The committee's chief means  of disseminating its decisions is  the Gazetteer of Canada series.  Gazetteers ��� that is, lists of  geographic names and locations  ��� have been published for all  provinces except Newfoundland,  to be published this year, and  Quebec, expected in 1969. Supplements are issued from time  to time. The committee now  has over 250,000 officially approved names, increasing at the  rate of about 2,000 a year-  It is this sort of know-how  that the Canadian delegation to  the Geneva conference is sharing with other nations. At the  same time, Canada hopes to  learn about certain methods  from other delegates, especially computerization.  No name changes and no hard  and fast rules are expected to  emerge from the conference. It  may, however, lead to the establishment of a permanent United Nations commission of experts on geographic names to  promote international standardization of names along uniform  lines.

We've been paying employment insurance for years by gathering  seeds to plant trees and jobs for the future.  Nature will eventually replant a logged forest ��� but she'll  do it in her own sweet time. Even then, she won't necessarily seed the  area with the most desirable species. We give her a hand by planting  young seedlings to replace the trees we harvest. Sounds easy, but there's a  catch. Trees produce good seed crops only once in every three  to ten years. So when a bumper cone crop does come along, we  gather all we can for planting in the lean years.  1966 was a good year for tree seeds. When the crop was ripe  and ready, our forest crews hand-gathered almost four million cones.  From these, more than 84 million tiny seeds were extracted,  cleaned, tested and cold-stored. As we need them, these seeds will be  planted and nursed along into sturdy seedlings. Then we'll  replant them where they'll do the most good.  By taking the initiative from nature, we're building a forest  that grows more productive each year. In British Columbia, that's  employment insurance for everyone.  /_A  Bloedel Sea otter sparks dream  The fabulous pelt of the sea  otter sparked Russian dreams  of empire in the New World,  caused the subjugation and virtual annihilation of the Aleuts,  and changed the course of history on North America's western  rim causing Britain to mobilize  for war.  Captain James Cook was the  first white man to land on Canada's west coast. After he noted in his journal that the beautiful sea otter furs could be bartered for beads or scraps of  copper, the fur traders were  soon on their way.  However, arrival of the early  trading   expeditions   at   Nootko  Sound coincided with Spanish  occupation of that area. Anxious to maintain control over  the valuable sea otter trade,  Don Estevan Jose Martinez  seized three British ships and  their, cargoes of furs at Noojbka  in 1789. This led to a bitter dispute between Britain and Spain.  7 It was settled on October 28,  1790, but only after Britain had  mobilized her Home Fleet. This  incident illustrates the treinen-  dous historical significance of  the sea otter in Canadian history, equal to, or perhaps greater than, that of the much more  frequently mentioned beaver  and bison.

ARTHRITIS CAN BE  CONTROLLED  Arthritis, by definition, means  inflammation of the joint or  joints.  There  are many  kinds  if arthritis, some of which tend- fSu ?n Hi.nw     k^T^  to produce disability, and same ���eat J�� toLfnsabIe' *��* ��1S <*  -* -���    - ������       -����� torts can help prevent the di  know that the attacks of arthritis will be short-lived, will  not recur, and will leave no  disability. It is sometimes hard  to be sure which ones will progress,    recur    and    ultimately  which do not,    The    Canadian  Medical Association reports.  Very seldom does arthritis  produce any degree of permanent disability. Statistics show  that even in these instances  where arthritis advances to the  stage where it is threatening to  cripple, adequate medical care  will prevent crippling in five  out of six cases.  When a patient appears in a  doctor's office complaining of  pain in a joint, the doctor will  attempt to determine what kind  of arthritis is causing, the pain,  and'how far it has advanced.  For some kinds of arthritis  ��� gout is one ��� there is specific treatment that will cure,  leaving no disability. In others  there may be a threat of disability, but proper management  will prevent crippling in over  80% of cases.  The C.M.A. says, the vast  majority of cases do not fall  into either of these two groups.  In  most  cases  the  doctor will  sease from progressing.  Indian Affairs Minister Arthur Laing announces that the  Indians of Canada Pavilion has  been offered to the City of Montreal. The pavilion, rated nationally and internationally as  one of the most thought-provok-  ig at Expo, was host to over  two million visitors.

Eades,  South Shields, were married in  Shottermill P aris h Church,  Hampshire, England, on Dec.  13, ��� 1917, and spent their honeymoon in the Isle of Wight.  Mr. Eades served with the  4th Canadian Division, 7HQ,  Canadian Expeditionary Forces  and the Royal Flying Corps in  the Middle East.  After the war they settled  first in Revelstoke and then in  Dundarave. In 1921 they moved  to Britannia Mines where Mr.  Eades worked both underground  and  in  the  engineering  office.  From 1928 until he retired in  1954 he was employed by Forest  Products Research laboratories  in Vancouver.  The Eades' home, Midhurst  Cottage, on the Sunshine Coast  Highway, was built in 1934, and  to it, each weekend, Mr. Eades  commuted, feeling, in time, that  he was entitled to a share in  the steamship company, or at  least to Christmas, dividends.  Meantime, Mrs. Eades, experiencing her first encounter with  the woods alone at night, securely barricaded! herself in the  house at the first sign of twilight, and nothing could, persuade her to open her doors until morning. Sounds of wild animals furtively attempting to  gain access stimulated her fitful slumbers; In time, as she  became accustomed to; the couh  try, the imaginary . animals  drifted, away, and she learned  to venture forth in the dark,  without fear, to meetings and  social gatherings.  During World War 2, she  worked for the local Red Cross,  and even went off to Vancouver  in response to a call for women  workers made by Mrs. \ Eaton  and there found herself assign-;  ed to ...a fish-packing..-.plant, arii  icy-cold building that caused  her to attire herself in such  garb as to cause hysterics when  she described it. Her co-workers favored the same warm,  but unvogueish, style of dress.  At one time Mrs. Eades conducted a Sunday School in the  East Roberts Creek school, and  she also taught a group of girls  the fine art of- sewing. She  works for St. Aidan's church  and is also a member of the  Canadian Legion Auxiliary.  In 1950 she joined the Order  of Eastern Star subsequently  working her way up to presiding over the chapter as worthy  matron. This year she won honors for herself and Mt. Elphinstone Chapter No. 65 by being  appointed grand chaplain of the  Grand Chapter of British Columbia in which capacity she  has travelled to many chapters  in the province. She is also an  honorary member of Bethel 28,  Job's Daughters.  Mr. Eades, also a member  of OES is affiliated with No. 130  A.F. & A.M. andi Branch 219 of  the Canadian Legion. Both Mr.  and Mrs. Eades found gardening an absorbing hobby and  their extensive grounds have  grown in color and beauty.  The Eades have one son, Reg,  who with his wife, Reva and  children Ted and Kathie, resides in Vancouver. Mr. Eades  has three brothers in Vancouver, J. Edwin, H. W. and W.J.  and one brother A. G. at Owen  Sound, Ontario. Mrs. Eades has  a brother, R. G Anker, in Victoria.  On December 10 they will attend a family dinner party at  the Golden Horseshoe in Vancouver and on December 16,  Mr. and Mrs. Eades will host  an at home at their residence  at Roberts Creek.

Mac-  Eachen.  OeL mild    Pension cash  BY NANCY  GAYLORD  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  The accomplished seamstress  knows that each fabric requires a different type of stitch,  needle and thread. If you're  a   beginner   at   the   art,   you'll  save time and mistakes if you  remember a few simple tips.  Thicker fabrics require longer  stitches and heavier needle and  thread. For example, when  working with cottons like  denim, sailcloth, ticking . . .  use a mercerized heavy duty  cotton thread Sew with a No.  16 or 18 needle, and set your  machine at ten stitches to the  inch. For light to medium  weight cotton fabrics like gingham, chambray, poplin, pique,  percale or chintz, use a No. 50  mercerized cotton thread. Sew  twelve stitches to the inch with  a No. 14 needle.  An old cotton chenille bedspread or bathrobe is excellent  for dusting ceilings, walls and  mouldings. Cut out two rectangles of fabric, stitch up three  sides, and run a drawstring  around the opening so that it  fits snugly over a broom.  Here's a time-saving idea  for sheet storage and use.  After laundering cotton parcale  sheets and pillowcases, divide  into sets for each bed. Place  pieces of shirt cardboard between the sets as you store  them, so they can be easily  pulled out when you're ready  to make beds.

Slip them onto the hands,  then rub some moist bread  crumbs or white cornmeal between them. Finish off with a  polishing with a cotton-flannel.  cloth.  Q. What is a good facial  treatment for  enlarged  pores?  A. One fine treatment is an  egg facial. After washing your  face, coat it with the white of  egg, leave this on for 20 to 30  minutes, then rinse your face,  first with lukewarm, then with  very cold water. This treatment has a closing and tightening  effect on the  pores.  Q. Any suggestions for a  fast, neat, and painless shaving of the legs with a bladed'  razor?  A. One excellent method is  by moistening the legs with  hand cream, then shaving. No  lathering, or rinsing is needed,  and your skin remains softer,  and with fewer nicks, too.  Q. My ears, sometimes break  out as the result of wearing  costume jewelry earrings. Is  there a good remedy for this  irritation?  A. Many women cope with  this little problem by washing  off the contact parts of their  earrings with rubbing alcohol,  then applying one or two coats  of clear nail polish to the parts  that touch the ears. This M  ually gives just the protection  needed.  Q. What makeup will detract  attention from under-eye circles?  A. The application af blue  eye shadow on and around the  eyelids, discreetly blended, of  course.

Coast News, Dec. 6, 1967.     IT  B>  If It's Electric Heating  Editor: As a Sunshine Coast  taxpayer I would: like to commend you on your fair assessment of the work being done on  our behalf by the Regional  Board, all of whom are now  asking for election.  iFrom your newspaper reports it is obvious that these  men are workers, not talkers,  and although they have had  only half a term of office in  which to, tackle all the thorny  problems which have been around for years they have already evidently established excellent relations with the provincial government without  backing down an inch on any  important issue. This combination of diplomacy and firmness  is most heartening to those of  us who are weary of watching  dithering in public places.  I strongly feel that we should  give all of these men at least  one full two-year term of office  in which to consolidate their excellent start before we think of  handing over any of their seats  to people who just weren't around when the spadework was  being done.  ���_3eiachcomber.  Editor: I attended the recent  Educational meeting where the  topic for discussion was Why  do children fail in school? and  more specifically, What is the  cause of high school drop-outs?  The lack of communication  between young people and adults couldn't have been more  obvious or more disconcerting.  It was like walking into the  pages of the Simma Holt book  Sex and the Teenage Revolution where she said that the  adults have for so long a time  refused to meet children on a  common level of interest that  now they are as strangers.  In our ever changing society,  it is the young people who are  grasping the new ideas and the  new morality and moving with  the times while we adults splutter about and whine and sigh  for the disciplines and restric  tive measures used by our parents.  The best encouragement the  students in our area can have  is to be thankful for the number of adults who attended the  meeting and for the few among  them, who seemed to try to understand the cause of the hostility and rebellion that emanated from the student group.  Certainly Mr. Johnson, district  superintendent, who was a mem  ber of the panedi, showed that  he was both willing and able to,  instigate and implement changes and progressive developments.  The saddest thing about this  meeting was the complete lack  of student drop-outs as guest  panelists. How could we hope  to understand problems of people who were not present to  speak for themselves?  As I was leaving the meeting  I encountered three teen aged  boys who I knew to be recent  drop-outs. I approached them  and said, "Well, what are you  three doing out here? I just  came from a meeting all about  you. Why weren't you there to  speak up?" They replied/, "We  tried to go in but we were  stopped at the door and told  that there was no games or  sports tonight, the meeting did  not concern us and we had better leave!"  ;   I  think the boys'  reply  was  Very  significant.  ���Violet  Winegarden.

"Yes, I have many good recollections of Mrs. Crucil" said  Jim Parker, as he looked down the street towards the stiurdy  new two-story Crucil Apartment and Business block.  "It was just 20 years ago when the Crucils piut up their  first store, the Tasella Shop . . .about the time we were  erecting the original unit of this building." Mr. Parker was  warm in his praise on the courage and astuteness of his enterprising  neighbor across the way.  Times were not always good in these parts, especially  in the earlier years, but Mrs. Crucil survived along, with a  few of us Sechelt oldtimers and this is indeed a fitting tribute  to her foresight and fortitude.  Folks around here will go along with me in wishing Mama  continued  good fortune and  many  more  years  activity.  Congratulates  Opening New Building Friday  Sechelt takes another step forward in stature with the opening of the modern  two-storey Crucil !building, which proudly takes its place to buUd out Sechelt's main  street. It will shortly be the new home of the Tasella Shop, where it will share ample  ground-floor business space with a second office area.  The upper floor contains four completely modern apartments with large balcony  areas. All this came about as the realization of a long time ambition of Mrs. Crucil,  a pioneer business woman whose faith in the expanding economy of this area ris  typified by this new addition to the business activity of Sechelt. )  THE OLD A familiar port of call for the people along the Sunshine Coast for the past 20  years -��� the Tasella Shop now moves to its  new home in the Crucil Block, continuing to  serve the needs of its old customers and new.

"I've worlked for a good many people over the years," said  Mr. Morgan, "but never in all my experience as a builder and  contractor have I had such pleasure in working for an owner,  as Mrs. Crucil."  "Aifter some shrewd, sharp bargaining at the beginning,  (Mrs. Crucil is a smart business woman) once the contract was  signed, she left the job entirely to us and never once had a  change of mind1 on it.

(Below, New Westminster  late in 1859). Vancouver was all  burned to ashes two months after its incorporation, but OPR  vice president Sir William Van  Home (who names the city after Capt. George Vancouver)  chose the new site at Coal Harbour in preference to Port Moody for the western terminal of  the transcontinental railway line  and a potential gateway to the  Orient. Vancouver sprang back  to life amid the tree stumps,  spread over the old Salish Indian lands, and rapidly outgrew  New Westminster as Canada's  main western port and B.C.  centre of commerce.    ,  Settlement around Burrard Inlet previous to the railway era  had  been   slow.   The  Hudson's  Bay Co. in 1827 began a thriving  trade in furs, fish and potatoes  at Fort Langley. The Fraser Ri  ver gold rush gave much more  life to New Westminster than to  Burrard    Inlet.    Then    miners  from the Royal City came digging for coal in 1859; and three  men   looking   for   potters   clay  got a crown land grant in 1862  and  built   a   cabin  overlooking  the inlet. Sawmills appeared; in  the  1860's.  In 1870,  near  Hastings  Mill  on  the  south  shore,  the village of Granville sprung  up around "Gassy Jack" Deigh-  ton's hotel,  patronized by sailors1, loggers and fishermen.  The first train arrived at Coal  Harbour in 1887. drawn by engine  374 which  now  stands   at  Kitsilano Beach Park. The new  terminal   attracted   other   railways and became the focal point  of   trans-Pacific   trade   as   the  western Canadian base for the  CPR's   three  new   "White  Empresses"  in 1891. The port be- .  gan to grow at a phenomenal  rate,   boosted  by  the  Klondike  gold rush in 1898. the Panama  Canal  completion in  1915,   and  active grain trade in ..1921.' y.S'f"  New    Westminster    (bottom)  late  in   1859,   the  year it  was  founded as the capital city of  the   Crown   colony   of   British  Columbia. Today it is the largest fresh water port on the Canadian west coast, and the madn  agricultural market town of the  lower  mainland.   The  site  was  selected by Col. R. C. Moody;  it was surveyed and laid out by  Royal Engineers. Queen Victoria  named it after Westminster, now  part  of  London,   and  the  new  city got off to 'a roaring start  as a port and supply base for  the Cariboo gold rush.  The city's present daily newspaper began publishing in 1861.  Flour mills, sawmills, and lumber mills were started, private  schools established, churches  built, and in 1863, the first public school was opened. New  Westminster was chosen as the  southern terminal of the Collins  overland telegraph planned to  connect B.C. and Alaska with  Siberia; and it became the  northwestern terminal of the  new Western Union "telegraph  line from Oregon; In 1865, the  first message received in New  Westminster over the new Western Union wire was the news of  Lincoln's assassination.  In 1866, the separate colonies  of Vancouver Island and British  Columbia were united, and two  years later the capital was moved  to  Victoria.   New  Westminster's,    growth    slowed    down.  B.C.'s first salmon cannery was  established nearby in 1870. The  city was connected with Seattle  by what is now the Great Northern Railway in 1891,  after the  CPR  by-passed!  the freshwater  port for a  salt water terminal  on Burrard Inlet. In 1898, a dis-  asterous  fire  burned down  the  business   centre   and   adjoining  residential   areas,   but   rebuilding greatly improved the city.  The    first    New    Westminster  bridge opened in 1904. The CNR  line reached the city during the  early 1900's and New Westminster's   rapid  growth  as  a  port  got   underway  In   the   twenties  with the construction of docks  and terminals.

Eliminate the ease of  obtaining   cigarettes,   and   you  will cut down the , number dlf  young smokers.
