The clerk replied that a committee did exist and that Mrs.  S. Dawe was the chairman.

"The whole thing is foolish/1  he said, "if he wishes to -tinker  with _ oar in his baek yard,  it is a lot better than he be  chasing around the roads.  "There is nothing wrong with  him having a car in his own  grounds and pulling it apart  if he wishes. In future I will  mt consider any complaints  unless they are in writing," he  concluded.

First Lieutenant Lo*  la Caldwell who represented  the Sechelt -area reports, the  course provided a vast fund of  nformation from which guiders  coqld provide more interesting  and instructive training programs.  Camp Tsoona embraces  eighty acres and is the proyin- ,  ciat training ceutre for camping training conferences;  Guiders from many areas of  B.C. attended the workshop and  considered themselves extremely privileged to have as lecturer, assistant professor Fred A.  Gornall from the Science Education Department of the Faculty of Education, UBC.  Guider in charge was Mrs.  W. J. Smith who is also a member of the Vancouver National  History Society.  Intensive courses in plant  identification, astronomy, weather conditions, fungology, entomology and even taxidermy  were offered and the use of  high-powered microscopes enabled guiders to make a more  scientific study of plant and  animal life.  Trap lines were set up in the  study of animal habitat; plaster casts made of animal tracks  ��� and various methods of preserving flowers and insects were  '"'"learned.""7  Besides practical work the  guiders received many slide illustrated lectures on game conservation and wild life. Mrs.  Caldwell said that this experimental course. offered.. for the  first time to guiders was extremely beneficial and also most  enjoyable.

admiration and thanks to the

You naturally open  your mouth to remonstrate at this rude awakening, and  that is a fatal mistake. In pops a thermometer. Experience in hospital has taught you th'at there are two kinds  of thermometers, oral and rectal, and for the rest of the  day you are wondering what kind you had in your mouth.

Mr. Underwood told council,  the ditching would be carried  out but village would be expected to accept responsibility on  completion. Councillor Ben  Lang expressed the opinion it  was a good offer and felt council would certainly not get a  better one. It was therefore  moved council accept the proposition.  Noted speaker  at Roberts Creek  ADVOCATE of progressive education, Robert Barker, a former teacher at the famous  > Summerhill School, England, is  slated to appear at the Scout  Hall, Roberts Creek, Thursday, June 10 at 8 p.m.  The public meeting is sponsored by the Unitarian group of  Roberts Creek who extend a  cordial invitation to the public to hear this dlstingishcd  speaker who has already made  a number of radio, broadcasts  and TV appearances.  Mr. Barker who is originally  from Saskatchewan, , returned  from Britain and took up residence in New York where he  set up a school, operated on  progressive lines.  Pin presentation  devotional award  IN RECOGNITION of her devotion and untiring , service to  St, Bartholomew's Anglican  Church, Gibsons, Mrs. K. M.  Fisher of Gower Point Rond  was presented with a pin and  life membership In the WA to  St, Bartholomew's. Making the  presentation at a special service on June 4 were Mrs, N. U.  Oswald and Mrs, N. Chaster  who are also, life members,  particularly cheerful, the reason being that they go off duly  at 7:30, and this, in itself, must  be cause for celebration after  spending eight hours attending  to the wants of a bunch of old  crocks. The constant care and  consideration shown by these  girls to the patients is outstanding; frankly, I would be inclined to haul off and clobber  one or two of the more inconsiderate ones who continually  demand unnecessary attention,  but the girls though they must  be sorely tempted at times, always come up smiling. Truly  they are a breed apart.  The food is good, not quite  like being at home, but well  cooked and wholesome and is  certainly no cause for complaint. We fill a menu out each  lay; for the following day's *  meals. This menu gives one a  choice "of, usually two kinds of  entree, fruit juices, beverages,  cereals etc; and as far as I am  concerned, has always resulted  in my receiving what I ordered,  withohe consistent exceptiohV  Breakfast, that is. The breakfast menu shows "soft cooked  eggl" For two and-a-half weeks  1 have written in bacon and  eggs and for two and-a-half  weeks I have received, you  guessed it, A SOFT-BOILED  EGG. Fortunately I enjoy eggs  in any form, but one of these  fine mornings, the kitchen staff  will make an error and I will  receive my bacon and eggs, in  any case it is an interesting  game and provides a brief moment of anticipation when I  uncover my breakfast tray  each morning.  EGMONT  GRAPEVINE  Have just received  May 26  issue of th6 Sechelt Peninsula  Times   and   I   am   extremely  gratified  to* read that' tenders  are to be called for a 200-foot  extension   to   our   government  floats.   This  addition  is  badly  needed and it is mainly through  the efforts of the Pender Harbour and District Chamber of  Commerce that the department  of public works has recognized  and decided to / act upon this  much needed facility.  This  is  just one of the many projects  in  tho   Upper   Peninsula   area  where   the   backing   of   your  chamber    has    bourne    fruit.  There "."aro ''others" in the near  future, so do not leave all the  work to a dedicated few; Join  the chamber now and give that  body your suppqrt, They need  you as a member, but not half  as bad as you need the chamber of commerce. It is the only  organization in our unorganized  districts that can speak for  the people as a whole and receive proper attention when it  matters.  ANOTHER HOSPIAL V  PATIENT  Sorry to hear that Terry  Phillips has been confined to  St. Mary's Hospital since May  24. Seems that Terry while  viewing the skydiving exhibition on Sechelt's May Day, lost  his balance and fell from the  stand, landing on a fence below  and injuring his back. Hope it  is n<?t too serious Terry, and  that you will be able to head  out to the fishing grounds soon.  It seems that the PTA was  handling the rereshment booth;  thus precluding my original  thoughts on hearing that an Egmont man had lost his balance.-  We never do that, we just fall  flat. All in fun Terry, and the  best of luck to you..  On second thought, this is  the second instance of an Egmont resident falling while in  Sechelt. It happened to Myrtle  Dalton a few weeks ago. What  do you put in your coffee down  there?  POPULATION   EXPLOSION  HITS EGMONT  Our population increased by  one on May 31 when Louise  Wtliams presented father, Jack  Jr. with a 9 lbs. baby son.

A CASE FOR  LIFE JACKETS  What might have been another drowning was averted re*  cenUy when little Michael Silvey, son of Shirley and Gene  Silvey, fell overboard from his  father's troller, while out fishing. Fortunately for all concerned, Mike was wearing a  life jacket and was soon picked  up, none the worse for his immersion, but a badly scared little boy.

My first introduction to the fact of royalty was1  at Queen Victoria's diaiiiond jubilee celebrations 'at'  Noriolk Island in 1897. I remember sitting on a high  sione wall with Melanesians and Norfolkers watching  people tent pegging and slicing lemons on horseback.  'Afterwards   we   sat   on   the    ���^������ ���   ground and ate roast yams,  fried bananas and roast sucking  pigs. The yams and bananas  \yere old stuff. Ordinarily we  ate "bullumacow" (beef, from  the noise the gun made when  the shot the unfortunate animal) but those roast sucking  pigs were really gastronomic,  and impressed me how lucky  we were tp have a queen and  eat such fare. Nor did the Melanesians and Norfolkers show  signs of colonial oppression resulting from imperialism. They  were.on that day and always,  quite happy.  True, at the fireworks that  night, the Melanesians all fell  backwards and ducked under  their benches when the first  rocket went up, and some ran  off and hid in the bush for  days, but those rockets probably impressed them just as  much as the" teht-^ggihg" aid"  pigs had.  The Norfolkers were descendants of the Bounty mytineers,  who had emigrated from Pit-  cairn Island to- N.I. about  1850s. Their, surnames you will  find in Mutiny on the Bounty.

It was felt that the dual project* would "best '���  benefit people of this area and of Egmont, which has  turned it grant over to Peiider Harbour.  Second Pender Harbour Cen  tennial meeting, held May 31,  heard reports from seven committees. Of the seven, investigating committees found only  two projects to be practical,  and it was decided to combine  the two.  Park committee: Mr. L. Larson, Mrs. M. Widman, and Mr.  W. McNaughton, and Tennis  Court Committee, Mr. J. Perry, Mrs. R. Mair, and Mrs. P.  Benjafield, presented detailed  reports of work and materials  needed, and costs involved.  Combined costs will total,  roughly, $7,000.00, of which less  than one-third will be supplied  by  grants.  When asked if. other areas  had come up with good fund  raising ideas, Mr. P. Lawrence  stated that this is the first centennial meeting he has attended where people had decided  on a project.  Offers of help were relayed  4o the%meeting from Mrv Frank  White, and Mr.i Ron Moffat,  who had volunteered use of  their equipment. Also from Mr.  O. Sladey who has offered lo  donate, for the taking, all fill  needed for the tennis court..  "Generosity of these offers certainly puts the ambitious project within the realm of possibility.  Tennis Court Committee further recommended that a tennis club be established, with  fees used to pay for caretaker  and upkeep.  Committee to submit report  on combined project is L. Larson, J. Flatley, and Mrs. H.  Sparling. ^....',...-,., ...  It is of interest to note that-  the  suggested  development  of  a   Karen   Range   ski-run,   although not practical as a centennial   project   has   received  favorable comment from other  quarters as a  possible winter  recreational development which *  would give the peninsula year-/  round tourist attraction.

There  is also another school of thought and that is we had bet-  " ter take ai long hard look at that slowly vanishing road  and do something about a sea wall of some description  while there is still something left to blacktop.  According  to  oldtimers,  and  there are still many of them  around, there was a time when  there was a wide, reasonably  smooth beach along the Sechelt waterfront. They recall  that   Vancouver   was ' growing  fast and the need for gravel  and navyjack was urgent. Big  scows came up from Vancouver and Sechelt's waterfront,  rich in these materials, was  practically plundered as hun-  reds and hundreds of tons were  loaded on scows to leave what  ���had been a fine beach a naked  boulder-strewn expanse that allowed the waves and tides to  ���creep closer and closer to the  , road.  Just how mucft more erosion  can this road stand before it  disappears     altogether?    Not  . much say some. Quite a bit say  others. It would seem the time  entire Pacific coast from Alaska to Cape Horn is one of continuous upheavel, from one age  to another. True, a serious  quake is a rare occurence but  Jfoejrejms been _atJeas.t_o_o_J��L  the memory of anyone but a  newborn child. The records of  the Observatory at Victoria  seismograph show there are  earth tremors of varying slight  degrees almost every day.  Most of these are perhaps due  to Premier Bennett making another of his "earthshaking" announcements, or NDP Leader  Bob Strachan registering his  usual protests but no matter  what the cause they are there.  Getting closer to home we  have what might be taken as  concrete evidence that sometime within the last 10,000  years we had a giant upheaval  element enters here and might    right  in  Sechelt,   or   at.least  appear to be a long period to  some would be ridiculously  short to the opposites. What  will it lose in the next 10, 20,  50 years? We can't say but a  comparison based on the last  50 years will give us..: small  room for comfort.  Engineers and others who  should know, state' emphatically that the Village of Sechelt is much higher than the  sea even with a high tide but  there are those still here who  clearly remember that a little more than 30 years ago during a period of extreme high  tides, together with strong  southeast gale, winds that blew  steadily for more ithan three  days, the water piled up over  the dikes at Lahgley and flooded that area. Here the same  conditions resulted in the sea  creeping over the comparatively low barrier at "the waterfront and flooded the village.  Were that to happen today,  and there is no guarantee that  it won't, the results would be  disastrous for the village. The  monetary loss in buildings,  property and merchandise  would be far. in excess of the  cost of an adequate seawall.  There is another potential  threat that we cannot afford to;  ignore much longer. Whether  we like it or not we must face  the fact that we are in the unenviable midst of an earthquake area. This history of the  where the homes of Ted Os  borne Sr. now stands at Porpoise Bay. In discussing these  matters with Mr. Osborne he  stated that while digging a well  on the property Avhere he now  lives be came across a perfectly preserved piece of fir  tree 40 feet below the surface.  It still smelled strongly of  pitch but there were, of course,  indications Of great age. It was  sent to the University of B;C.  where experts, using scientific  methods and instruments, calculated its actual age to be not  less than 10,000 years. How did  it get to be 40 feet deep in the  ground? The experts had one  word of explantion, earthquakes.  How many of us have been  surprised to find great beds  of clamshells *-at least 50 feet  higher than high water mark  at many places along the  coast. At Secret Cove, right  behind the original store, and  half way up the steep slope  there is such a placer The  shells are there, or were there  when we owned the place, in  great profusion, How did they  get there? Many say they were  carried up there by the Indians years agp. This is hardly likely. There are ho clam  beds in Secret Cove of any account and even if there were it  is scarcely credible that Indians would select a slope as  steep as that for a camp site.  gmMflfflOOim^  ROYAL CANADIAN  LEGION  ��? 41 ���*> *l��ww��^i*-*#*wi��^wtf*i'  >  \  Joint Branch  ..',,,'    .,���>...'      v ��� ������ ���      ���������>������     " ��� ��� i  Track and Field Meet  Elphinstone Secondary School Grounds  JUNE   12     10:00 o!m.

While it was not a  strong one here, it was almost  as strong as the one that  wrecked San Francisco and  other places. Had this shock  been a little stronger, it could  conceiveably have opened a  crack along the waterfront big  enough to let the sea rush  through. We don't have to outline the results.  ~Wbat can be done to prevent,  or at least minimize these dire  but ever present possibilities?  An adequate dike or sea wall is  the answer. There is -no other.  There are many who will admit such protection for the village is needed and there are  others who will pooh-pooh it  and say that the possibility of  major trouble from this source  is too remote to consider. Perhaps; who ever dreamed an  earthquake produced t i d a 1  wave would rush up the Alberni Canal and wreak such  havoc? Nobody, but it did.  This brings us back to where  wo started and before, any thing  is done about blacktopping the  waterfront road, boulevard or  whatever you want to call it,  the Village Council should  make strong representations to  both federal and provincial  governments for a complete engineering survey of the situation. It a breakwater to provide shelter for small boats is  essential, and it seems to be,  a sea wall to provide shelter  for the Village of Sechelt is  moreso. Such protection is not  entirely the responsibility of  the Village of Sechelt. The provincial government of the day  was responsible for the removal of much .of the protection.  Let the provincial government  of today replace it.  Rod & Gun Clubs  inter club meet  SUNDAY, June,13 will see a  squad of shooters down from  Powell River for an inter-club  trap a_td skeet shot.

Reader's right  from Editorial Page-  regrettable manner cf report  ing in both, local newspapers  Sitting on such high horses of  alleged "responsibility ot the  public" they completely lost  fight of the path on which  they were riding and which led  straight to a most questionable  attempt to intimidate the board.  Fair reporting and fair comment help our trustees in their  often difficult and most thank*.  les job of running the taxpayers' afairs, but no service to  the public was rendered by  one of the papers by the most  unfair inuendos combined jvvitiL,  rather doubtful statements as  to facts on its front page on  the day of the meeting. However the self righteous and  biased attitude of this paper is  not new to me from previous  experience some years ago and  was fully confirmed during the  public meeting by a former  trustee, who revealed that in  her time the paper only printed what the then school board  deemed appropriate, apparently  vith a complete disregard of  the now so strongly proclaimed  "responsibility to the public".  As regards the meeting itself, may I stress, with the  strongest '''''"'emphasis''"tffat;" ���any'"'  motion of whatever nature passed by majority cr without dissent, are invalid, out of order  and lacking legal foundation, as  they were net voted upon (1)  in duly called ratepayers' meetings in the proper areas with  notice of agenda and (2) no  proof of voting qualifications  was produced.  I challenge the right of any  ratepayers   from   outside    my  area or any other group of persons to cast a vote of confidence or non-confidence in the  trustee   or    representative    of  my area or to ask for the resignation or any other action of  my   trustee.   I   am   sure   the  ratepayers of other areas feel  the same way about their trustees   and   representatives,   notwithstanding the fact that the  chairman  of  the   Gibsons   village   commission   felt   himself  called upon to do so, for reasons stated by  him,  which in*  ir>y  opinion   appeared  ill  con-  ���feidered   and   which,   I   hope,  were not the official policy of  the village commission.      ,   ,  In  view of the fact that  I  could   not  -state   abovev views  in the meeting, I am forwarding copies of this letter to both  papers with the! request to have  it published  also as a "letter  to the editor.**  FRANK WEST  Editor's Note: No unfavourable comments, irresponsible,  misleading or otherwise, in re*  gards tp the above situation  have been made in The Times.

Lovely bouquets were presented by Seaview Market; community association, Miss E. Harrold and Mrs.  F. R.

Many people donated cake for  the' tea table and last but not  least, the committee was pleasantly surprised to find how  generously people had contributed  to the collection  box.  This is strictly a community .  library and does not receive  any financial assistance from  the Public Libraries Commission, except for the twice yearly shipment of books which are  sent on loan.  In about 1948 or 1949 the library was started as a project  of the PTA and was housed in  what was then known as Mrs.  ,R,ook��'s cottage; with ,; Mrs.  Rdoke'as custodian. When/she  was taken ill several weeks  ago, Mrs.. Graham carried on.  Shortly after , tho property  was acquired by the community as a centennial project in  1958 the little cottage was reno*  'vated with the help of Mr, A.  Barnes and fitted with shelves,  and the books had, what was  thought to be, a permanent  home.  For   a   time   thero  was   no  lighting in thc building and In  the winter it was a bit cold  and the cottage was so small  that people complained that  they couldn't find it. Last year  the idea of purchasing the corner lot came up and this was  done, and now we have the  present new building, housing  both library and Post Office.  Both are comfortable and more  convenient and make an attractive addition to the village corner.
