The life of an itinerant  worker, the loneliness, the  dept and width of friendships,  the heart of a child, all are part  of the story, whidh in spite of  the exotic nature of the locale,  still has a universal appeal.  Darcy Niland is one of the  many writers in Australia  whose work is unhappily little-  known on the continent, '..���and  deserves far wider appreciation.  But besides his swag Macau-  lay had a shiralee, as the Australians call an extra burden.

The existence of these hideous cesspits of  lost souls, where depravity is but a means of  survival, is by no means confined to Brazil. It  exists in most, if not all, Latin American countries and is the more deplorable considering fantastic wealth is squandered with complete abandon only yards away.  Youngsters without a hope of reaching another birthday, sprawl m the dust and filth, dying  from malnutrition while champagne  flows like  ' water and millionaires throw dice for fortunes  just for kicks.  This is indeed a terrifying condemnation of  our so-called civilized society . which although  despising communism, offers no other hope or  solution to the hordes* of frenzied, despondent  humanity,  fighting  a losing battle for survival  under conditions we would consider as unsuitable  for pigs.  Little wonder the grasping tentacles of communism spread with such rapidity and success.  It is a creed undesirable in our society, it is in  fact an evil institution .to pur way of life. Yet to  undernourished and unprivileged people of the  world, it does at least offer hopes of full stomachs  and some semblance of fair play.  Scott's article has undoubtedly come as a  great shock to the many who enjoy life, completely oblivious to the squaller existing in countries such as Latin America. The unfortunate  situation facing us is that Brazil itself is not an  impoverished country; it is in fact extremely  wealthy. Main problem would appear to be the  social structure which obviously stinks at present.  A rather more equitable distribution of funds  would appear to be the most desirable solution,  yet this is strictly an internal problem, which  means there is little we can do, sickened though  we might be. Protestations from governments,  religious and other groups, might help but money  has" no conscience, which leads one to wonder  just what is the solution?  Shades:M the Kremlin  THREAT by Councillor Ben Lang that unless the  press gave him fair play, in other words less  adverse publicity, he would sec to itthe public  would have to depend upon press releases, was a  rather foolish statement:  Had such a remark: been thrown out. in a  public meeting in Vancouver, the press would  have enjoyed a hay day. Indeed, the councillor  might even have achieved nation wide fame or  perhaps notoriety. For after all, such dictatorship  although common in the Kremlin, is something  alien to our way of life.  To giveahe councillor credit, he was pro-*  bably quite genuine in his belief that his side of  the question had not been given sufficient prominence. His open threat that the press would  only be permitted press releases, was by no means  a clever remark and was so far out that it can  only-be interpreted as an)( unintentional misuse of  words.  As has been stated before, the lot of a councillor is not an enviable one, he faces criticism  from all quarters, unfortunately only too frequently from people who have no conception of  the problems that have to be considered.  Naturally; the average person,seldom has thc  time to sit in on a council meeting, apart from the  fact that accommodation is extremely limited in  to depend upon the press to make known what  transpires, most important it has every right to  know just what its elected representative is doing.  In this respect it would on occasion prove something of an eye-opener to shin once in a while.  This of course is where the press plays an  important part in the community, in many cases  a newsman who for a period of years has sat  continually through council meetings in a number  of communities, is considerably more versed in  municipal affairs that most councillors. He is  also well trained to smell out discord*, intrigue  and downright collusion, should it exist.   **  Obviously it would be out of the question to  quote a meeting verbatim, the pertinent details are  extracted and a concise account related. There  was nothing wrong with the report in question  and any member of council who takes a decisive  stand in open council should have the fortitude  to stand up and be counted.  One complaint by Councillor Lang was that  he was quoted as stating he was having Boulevard  paved but that it had not been made known a  small area was to be subdivided. It is true a tentative application had been submitted to council  and as the councillor appears keen to make this  fact known, it would also interest the public to  the council chamber. Thc public therefore has    learn who has purchased the lots referred to.  Baby Im Peril  LORD BEVERIDGE became quite candid  shortly before his death. He admitted that  his plan for the Welfare State, which has been  adopted in Britain, had turned out to be less  than the great success he prophesied. Less than  a success is,an understatement from thc point  of view of people who feel ''the" welfarism' is  national decay.  , Lord Bevcridge has a place in history,  hut it. is not the place of a sound economist.  Jt will be probably the placo of'a propagandist,  who produced a plan for giving people something that could not be given.  ; His Lordship's excuse was that he did  not expect inflation and, therefore, he could not  be blamed for the evil that followed his report.  1   What kind of an economist could he huvc  been to havc overlooked, twenty, years ago, not  only the probability but the inevitability of  inflation? Money pumped into the economic  system without exchange of goods or services  is always inflationary. Thc only offset to inflation is production of goods and services,  It has been said that a nation can stand a  lot of ruinous policies without disappearing as  a nation. There arc examples in South America  of such conditions. Any ship can stand some  leaks, but if thc leaks become too great thc  ship will sink. Thc British ship of state has  been leaking at the seams because of Lord  Beveridge. Ihc leaks may be caulked or they  may hot be sufficient to dcstryHhe country, hut  they arc serious leaks. Lord Bcvcridge's baby  may be drowned. ,   ,  Editor, The Times  Sir���When are the people  who are looking after the affairs of the citizens of Sechelt  and area going to wake up and ���  realize the potential of the  tourist trade in our area.  I now see where the progressive village council would like  to have the boat launching  ramp removed, one of the few  tourist attractions we have to  offer. Also talk of removing  the picnic tables to another location.  People leave the congested  cities to come here and sit. beside the beautiful open waters  and breath in the .refreshing  salt breeze. Projects such as  these entice them to our domain. Let us look to the future of the community, not  bow to the selfish attitude of a  few enterprising citizens who  only  look out   for themselves.  Latest ugly rumors of muzzling. the press, should be taken as an indication of the  need for drasUc changes.  TED FAREWELL  Strange action  Editor, The Times  Sir���Have we again made a  mistake* in our choice of members for our school board? I  have never heard of a more  despicable action than that taken at a recent meeting, to  pass a motion of censure on  the actions of one of the members during the persons absence.

"      ,  .1 believe council is right not  spending more money on this  project, in light of the fact that  the ramp site may have to be  changed, if and when a breakwater is built, and the difficulty  maintaining it.at present.  I would much rather see money spent on engineering ex^  penses for a pari; site on the  waterfront and strengthening of;  the sea wall,-for engineers tell  me as soon as we get a three-  day 40 ni.p.h. southeaster on a  14ft. tide, there will be no Boulevard Street.  -ART JAMES  Sechelt Marina &  Resorts Ltd.'  Much concerned  Editor, The Times  Sir���I have met Mrs. M. Ball  and admire and respect her  ability as . chairman of the  School Board meetings w*ich  1 have attended. Especially  since hearing her remark, "We  as trustees should be able to  accept criticism," which implies that she is fully aware of  what her position as a member  of the School Board means.  1 naver had any doubts about  ���_Jhe,,,,.ppera.tbn^,,,pC^.-.the.^Scbx)ol*  Board as long as Mrs. M.

Oh, how I wished  that I were rich. Oh, what a beautiful night it's going  to be. Oh, my goodness, I didn't realize you had started  to read my news of the square dance picture, so I had  best get started right.  The Sechelt Peninsula Times, Wed., May 12, 1965 Page 5  /SSC-*3k-l(J(/*  Let's see now, what did I do  with my nates on the last  square dancing events. That's  right, I didn't make any. They  are not necessary anyway, because square dancing is fun  and relaxing and just plain  nice: Well, let's' lace facts> one .  just doesn't ever forget a get-  together with friends and neighbors in an evening of square  dancing, laughter, round dancing and the humorous side of  coffee time.  April 30, 1965, was the wind-  up square dance for the Junior  square dancers, with 18 kids on  hand, candies, cookies and soda  pop as well as slide pictures  i&ken on the Sat. night when  they danced with the Sechelt  Promenaders.  To top the evening, I was  presented with a, very nice  card, signed by all the Junior  Squares, and a bob tie. Susan  Gibson made the presentation  then stood back and waited for  me to open the package which  was about a foot square. So .  I proceeded to unwrap box ^after box till I got down* to a  vbox ^bout two����������������� inches �� Square  and I said, "there just can't  ba a smaller- box in that one" ���  but there was.  This really brought .a loud  burst of laughter. However, I  finally got the last box unwrapped and held up a very nice  bolo tie for all to see. Even the  kids didn't know that I was  getting this gift. Doug Doyle  and Cathy Berry were the instigators and I sure do thank  them for helping to make the  evening a great success. Yes, I  don't know what I would do  without my helpers Cathy and  Daug. Of course there are  times when I don't know what  to do with them. Well, as my  grandmother used to say, er-  erything comes out even sooner or later.  May 1, 1965, St. Hilda's Hall,  was the scene of a lot of action  as two sets of square dancers  wrapped up another season of  square dancing and I must say  lhat it's been <a pleasure calling for the Sechelt Promenaders this past season and I wish  to thank you all for putting up  with me.  Jack Inglis, from Gibsons,  was <oii hand^tb'eiall a' tip' for  me which in turn allowed me  to get on the-floor and do a  little square dancing. Of course  I did very well but I haven't  figured out what the other seven in the set were doing. Well  anyway, thanks '-again Jack  for helping to make our last  dance a wonderful evening to  be remembered by all.  My old friend Rai Thomas  sends word over that a wind-  up square dance, that's a real  ROUND UP PODNER, will be  held at the YOUBOU KALU  Lake Cowichan and hosted by  the Lively Lakers on June 5,  1965. Just follow the signs to  Lake Cowichan and when you  get there if you can't find the  half; enquire at the Ranger Station and Smokey the Bear will  Sive you directions. Billets will  be provided for out-of-towners.  Just bring your sleeping bag  in case there is an extra large  crowd of square dancers turn- ���  out. Rai may have to hang a  few up in the trees, but don't  worry, they have very nice  trees over there.  Oh!, you are wondering why  I think there will J^ a-ilarge  turnout of  this square dance are going  towards building a hall for  square dancers at Lake Cowichan. So, and this is to all  square dancers wherever you  may be, let's all get behind  the wagon and push this square  dance over the top.  Well, if it's square dance  news you would like to get  printed or if you wish to find  out what's going . on in the  square dance world of entertainment, just pick up the SECHELT .PENINSULA TIMES  and tell your friends that I  read all about square dancing  in the Sechelt Pen.

An open discussion of possible projects and events met  with enthusiastic and confident  participation by the young people who expressed the wish to  see the return of the Regatta,  and establishment of a Community Centre.

But I hard no sound other  than the creak as the whole  bouse shook. The place seemed  to sway. Without knowing why  I glanced at my watch. It was  8.29 and since I dislike being  fished out Pf wreckage wearing  only  my  pajamas I  got  . dressed Jn nothing flat and was  Out ready, to take off by 8:30.  This is a remarkable performance for me but it took an  earthquake to do it.  Radio stations were now get*  Ung into the act. They announced, that no damage bad been  recorded as yet in Vancouver  but   walls   and   plaster   were  ��� tumbling down in Seattle and  other dries in Washington.  "There were no last reports of  casualties but it stands to rea*  - son you can'H have brick walls  and things falling all around  i without somebody getting hurt.  In any case nothing to serious  MS reported so we, dropped  back into the old routine.  Our house sits on a concrete  foundation that rests on hard-  pan and that, I suppose, is why  we felt the shock more than  others. How, I asked myself,  would this effect the many  buildings in Sechelt with concrete block walls? Had the tre-  itfor cracked them or shook the  stock off the shelves? If so,  Which one would have suffered  the most damage. Impelled by  nothing more than a purely  scientific motive I called at the  local liquor store fully expecting to see piles of broken bottles and the frantic clerks mopping the rocket fuel off the  floor. But all was normal. The  man in charge said he was in  the building but thought the���  slight shaking was nothing  more than the village council  in the Municipal Hall across  tho street holding an extra-long    session. Somewhat disappointed, 1 ambled off to ask a few  others what had happened to  ,,....������ .them,  One businessman w Ii o s e  house is built on solid rock said  th6<" place shook like crazy, but  no damage occurred, He natur-  ' ' > ally foam! for the safety of  his business premises a n d  rijshed into Sechelt, All' was  well there too; Another "man  whose house is built, qn what is  more or less ��. sand base said  his place .seemed to hen ye' and ,  he was amazed1 to see the flooV  ripple almost like water, Dish*,  c.i slid across thc table and the  refrigerator lilted as if it were  KOlng to fall over,  Earthquake experts." at various observatories said the  shock was severe enough to  send theV.seismograph', needles  off thin chaft ami its Intensity  was only one point less than  tlm quake that wrecked San  ��� Francisco ln�� irwo, They estimated the centre of Iho qunko  to bo about :iO miles out of  Soattlo   and   photos,   appearing  , later showed long stretches, of  railroad tracl<; hanging llko rib*  slid nwny from beneath tl^om,  Hy this It will Ihv seen that  tho little ripple wo hnd ,hero  wan,merely the outer,udgo, but  llioro are.Mono among us who  will recall that sometime In Iho  Into forties there was ono hero  Hint wns somewhat more of ��  ripple, It just about changed  the oast coast Hue of Vancouver islnnd In iho vicinity of  , ,���X.Jtook~lifly~~  the owner to* stay, put ''and not  jump around the boat:.

We were���starjng at each' other  and wondering what bad happened when the boat seemed-to  shiver then jumped sideways  and was slammed against the  ; floats. We ran out' on deck  and were surprised to see the  usually quiet waters of the  cove were leaping .upwards in  little sprouts the .same- as if you  had some water in a dishpan  and kept hitting the bottom  with a stick. We just stood  there  staring  until  the  water  beasts.

Pictured here  are Kirk Thomas, Harry Lang, Mark Dober, Alan Wilson, Phillip Anderson, Trevor Oram, Willie Kennett,"  Tom Azan and Franklin Roberts. An estimated crowd  of 600 watched the boys during the afternoon performance and 200-300 attended the evening display. Transportation was provided by Mr. Don Hauka, chairman  of the district committee and John Ferrari, scoutmaster.  His and Hers  by J. and D. Browning  SOMETIMES we are at a loss what to write about. We  do not write much about current topics of the day  because our thinking is quite unorthodox, e.g. We are  glad to see Les Canadiens win ,the Stanley Cup, very  glad. Their hockey is a joy to watch. That lightening  speed skating and combinations are something you  don't quite see in other teams'.  Also as regards unorthodoxy     ���: '   tfW��dl> iV*b*.}t*^t:MM*!M5!W^����*��*W1<1m!^*lt^^  we think that if the Viet Cong  would stop aggression from  North Viet Nam, the Ameri-'  ���cans probably would stop  bombing it.  Yet onV the other hand  schooled by TV and other sources into thinking that each  U.S. Marine could whip hjs  weight in wildcats, we are. surprised that it takes 17,534 of  them to rescue? P3,Q00 people  from San Domingo. But we suspect deeper machinations. Per*  haps we are guilty of illogical  reasoning through lack of education. Wc, had an uncle who  ate mustard with his marmalade, so there is a streak of  eccentricity running trough  the family.  Further unorthodoxy, we think  that If some of those downtrodden, people really want to  be communists, they should be  allowed to, But ope 'imagines" it'  is only the Americans who look  under their bed. for a ."comma*,  nistl Ono cannot imagine how  they can fear communist Infll*  tratlon, everything In USA being so hunkey-dory, as It Is  herd also1,' and wo do not look  under our beds���at least not for  communlHts,  Wo suspect that President  Johnson snyH bitterly over IjIh  early morning cup of coffee,  "Tho world Is. out of Joint, Oh  bears till the next hockey sea*  son, It is. all very well for you  people infested with baseball,  but we do" not care whether the  Yankeef Dodgers or the Brooklyn Orioles win the world series,  ' Spring comes slowly here,  but in Alberta it came with a  "ruddy blush." After that, the  mosquitoes.  My old mosquitoe hpmestcad  in N.E, Alberta was surround*  ed by non-treaty Cree Indians  who also had homesteads (100  ��� acres). They scratched) up their  land with a plough, lived In little log and mud shacks, and  after inrco years ''proved up"  their homesteads with the dominion land, agent, who was  son-in-law of tho man who then  bought their land, having ad*  vanced them groceries during  their three years' of residence,  1 Tho older men were fine look*  Ing chaps with eagle hoses and  'long plaited hair, One pf them  William Oknnls, had been out  with Big Bear In his rebellion  and been present at tho Frog  Lake massacre,  They only got drank onco a  lo New Year, inclusive,,give or  take a day or, two at each end.  Their standard of llvlntf was  dox. There was Mrs. R.���who  objected to J. A. driving  through her land, so she threw  frozen cow dung at him. She  was bound over to keep the  peace and not throw cow dung  ���frozen or otherwise���for a  year. They have now both gone  to their reward with opportunities to throw it perhaps,  though I doubt if its frozen.  Several times I did breaking  (ploughing new land) for Mr.  B.-^-the last time I did. he was  contemplating matrimony and  needed more land in cultivation  for the extra $100 per annum  his bride-to-be, of he could find  one, would cost; $60 a year for  her food and $40 a year for her  clothing, if she didn't wear  shoes.  While doing this work, he  furnished the midday meal.  The carte-du-jour was always  the same, two fried eggs, bannock without butter and underdone stewed rhubarb. Fried  eggs on toast are very nice but  ' flat, on a plate they look like  big fish eyes and soon get about  as cold,.  One day my dog ate B's'-v  freshly-baked bannock set outside to cool. He was very angry and said, "It is not the loss  of the bannock but the disappointment." We lunched on  fried eggs and rhubarb only  that day. While doing his thrc*  shlng in the fall, my cousin ate  14 of his fried eggs for break*  fast, B, never had mo to do his,,  threshing again. A pity, he was  a cash payer. *  That country is very different now. They have cleared  most of the bush and farm'V0  or three sections each ( wtf'ec*  tion is 640 acres), Those* who  arc left complain of no social  life with so few people there,  not like the old clays of dances In the school house with a  bottle of moonshine cached In  the woodpile,  I   quoted   Ezcklcl   to   them,'  "Cursed bo they who lay field  to field and house to house, till  they bo left albno In the midst  pf tho earth,"  MORE  ABOUT  .  .  .  Poor practices  from page 1���  thing.  Mr. Rustemeyer was of the  opinion that this is true to some  extent and said investigations  had revealed that unsafe acts  and negligence were responsible for many accidents. Only  10 per cent were a result of  unsafe conditions.  Statistics indicate about 30  employees in the mill carry  out unsafe nets. "How did they  get past the supervisor or into  the union," he asked.  Mr. Fred Corley, President  Local 237, Pulp and Paper Mill  Workers, thanked management  for arranging a dinner at  which he felt honored to at*  tend, "Local 297 recognize the  problems," he said, "and feel  that most of the accidents were  due basically to construction'  problems.

Amounting to almost $70, it  had been previously "voted  council pick up the tab on the  lawyers fees. In checking with  Victoria as to legality of the  proposal, Clerk T Ray nor was'  notified the payment would be  considered the responsibility of  the candidate.  Question by Benner as to  responsibility resting on council in the event of a person  standing for council when not  a Canadian citizen,,, was objected to by the clerk who said it  was not the place to bring up  election procedures.  Councillor Gordon expressed  the opinion that as the clerk  was returning officer and the  recount rose from dispute over  spoiled ballots, it was the moral duty of council to assume  responsibility for the bill.  The chairman pointed out  that village was not permitted  to pay the bill but suggested  it could be referred back for  further, consideration, by- the  governmental department.  Following a statement by  Councillor Benner that he had  already had legal advice and  would fight the case. Councillor  Lang moved the letter be given Behher that lie'might give  it his lawyer for study. This  was so moved and the matter  left over pending.  I won't say my family didn't  love me. I won't say they were  trying to get rid of me. But my  mother did wrap my school  lupches in travel posters.  We just heard about the husband who was asked where he  had met his wife.

Cleric .    ��jfce chairman   agreed   that  years, but reliable men tell me  and I am sure, this place is a  trap for boats.   ���,.  Friends .trying to visit us at  Nelson Island "say they have  made three attempts but were  driven back before reaching  Roberts Creek where they  would find shelter for the night.  How many will take the same  chance when they hear of shelter at Sechelt? This will become the bait for the trap.  Many men have told1 me  "The Creek is a death trap for  any boat which tries for the  shelter you left there.'", have  been trying for years to make  clear there must be a shelter  for at least the small outboard  there.  I myself have been out bun*  dreds of times to help those in  trouble,    once    having    seven  boats  from   20  to  30  feet  in  there, caught in a storm after  leaving Gower Point on a nice  Sunday morning.  Many people  believed   I   saved   their   lives  and I was considered brave by  some or a fool by others, but  I know my boats much better  than such people.  '���';V 1 met steamers for the mails  for 3,0 years without a miss by  ' my small boats and once saw  the.big brass nut of the steamer's  propeller  as  the  wheel  lashed the sea, But the mails  were carried without my sign*  ing along the dotted line. The  only mails so handled, I was  told,    ; .;  ,   ���.,.;...:.,..  The matter of Roberts Creek  shelter is in a muddle but I  believe is being looked into  again, I would, be glad to hear  .from any person interested in  removing this trap by at least  getting some shelter for the  little fellows,  Ted Raynor pointed out it  would be ridiculous to put a  road through until drainage  had been carried out.  Coun. Lang felt the drainage  should, be done now but Chair- ....  man Mrs. A. Johnston disagreed, stating it was not necessary, a tide gate would be  required and it was understood  the department of highways .  had agreed to consider this installation:  INDEMNITIES  Previous move by Coun.  Gordon that indemnities of  members be reduced to $100  was ruled out of order and it  was agreed to continue at the  existing rate of $200 for commissioners and $500 for the  chairman. Coun. Gordon abstained from voting.  This to some extent offsets  expenses incurred by council  members who during their  term in office, make numerous  trips in the course of their duties, particulary in. the case of  the chairman who has made repeated trips to Victoria on'behalf of the village*  LICENCES  Licensing    Inspector    Burnel  this was by no means desirable and brought up the fact  that another house bad been  subject to complaint due to  junk and litter scattered around  the rear of the home; "Also,  there have been complaints  from residents regarding  chickens kept within the district which create a rat hazard," she said.     ��� <  It was decided to carry out  an investigation into the com*  plaints and to seek the assistance of the sanitary inspector  regarding the chickens.  PARK BUILDING  Couq. Benner reported lie  "had received three tenders fjr  materials to be used in construction of a building on Hack-  ett Park, to be used as5 a booth,  rest rooms and storage room.  All had been in the vicinity of  $800 and he suggested tenders  be called.  The clerk explained that it  would be necessary to prepare  details prior to putting put tov  tender. The .chairman said a .',  number of people favored  spending money oh the Waterfront but Councillor Lang conv  mented   that  despite   what   is  The    students    who   accepted  members    to    stay    overnight  ^.are^ak^  Those students who attended  the concert felt it was very  worthwhile.

It was in 1908  that The British Canadian Wood Pulp "and Paper Company Limited started building arnill on the Port Mellon  site. Known as Pioneer Mills, the mill operated for only  about four months before closing down due to high costs  of fuel and transportation.  The    mill    changed    hands  many times over the year. In  ...S..8pte.in.he:rit.:.,1829..wThc,:-.."Sunda.y.;...  Province" Magazine Section re-  parted as follows:  PORT MELLON NOW ON MAP  "Port Mellon is not by any  means a new site for a pulp  mill. The first attempt to build  and operate a mill there was,  made some 25 years ago .; .  No Jess than 5 concerns owned  ��� tho place before it was taken  over by its present owners, The  Vancouver Kraft Company .' ," .  They found out that, though the  old mill produced a good grade  of paper, it was far.,.too.expensive and slow in operation for  the modern enterprise. Unde*  tcired by the hoodoo that seemingly haunted all former owners; they decided to close down  and re:nadel the old; plant after the latest pulp mill standard!?. This reconstruction has  taken over a year-and has produced far-reaching changes.  New brick and steel buildings...  costing over $150,000 will bouse  the pulp mill , , ."  Shortly after this article appeared the depression set in.  The price of kraft pulp dropped from $63 to Sad per ton.  T h e .construction' program  stopped,  In I93.r�� the construction that  hud .been started In 1923; was  cpiiiplettid .and an additional  |.ujp machine was installed.

The total capital  cost of these expansions exceeds 28 million dollars. 'Today the Port Mellon mill employs 430 parsons and has an  annual payroll of $2.75 million.

In 1940, with World War II"  hampering the supply of Scandinavian Kraft Pulp to North  America, the Sorg Paper Company of Middletown, Ohio became interested in Port Mellon.  The mill started up again, and  the Sorg Papei^Company soon -  contracted for'the- entire output  of the mill, taking a two-year  option to buy the mill for two  .and..,a half million dollars. The  sale was transacted in 1941 and  the Sorg Pulp^Company Limit*  ed was incorporated in B.C. The  mill operated successfully under the Sorg interests until 1949  when poor market, conditions  and increasingly difficult competition with southern U.S.  ills forced Sorg to close down  the operation.  The demand for kraft market  pulp started to improve again  in 1950 arid Sorg found many  companies interested in purchasing the port Mellon mill; A  reorganization offer by CFP interests .and;,,,, Perkins-Goodwin  Co. was accepted. The name of  Sorg Pulp Company Limited  was changed to , Howe Sound  Pulp Company Limited on  March 8, 1951, with CFP holding a majority interest, In October, 1953, the interests of Perkins-Goodwin Co. and the Sor��j  Paper Company were brought  Out by CFP and the Port Mellon operation became the Howe  If-you're asking  yourself  This message might provide a pjsjtjve answer.  >a!WHI^>##��jt���W!*��W>^��^^  Vs=  If a major purchase costs more than you want to spend,  , the Bank of; /ylontreai Family Finance PJan; might well  be the difference between having it to enjoy and going  without.

The trustees and 44 property owners were  present.  Thfe Chairman, Markle Myers, opened the meeting and  the minutes of the last annual  meeting were read and approved. The secretary and project  manager, E. S. Johnstone, was  called upon to present the 1964  financial statement prepared  by Brown, Sherlock, Steele and  Company���-Chartered Accountants, and to give a report on  the main water system project recently completed and the  two extensions of the main system to Baker.

On a  motion by Mr. W. White it was  unanimously resolved to call a  special meeting of property  owners as early ;as practical  upon completion of first year's  operation to consider possible  reduction of water tolls.  Mr. E. Garvey questioned  whether the water users had  agreed to the present water  toll rate of $5.00 per month,  ���The secretary stated that a  special meeting to consider  this matter was held on Dec.  8, 1963 after being duly advertised and notices posted, A further examination of the' minutes of this \ meeting reveals  that 96 property owners were  present and two resolutions  were unanimously passed as  follows:  .

Why this is being omitted is hard to understand as  this is part of the bus route and  also.,._, access -to the Roberts  Creek Park.  Mr. John Forbes, caretaker  of Roberts Creek area parks,  informs us that the parks department is having a water  line laid into the park this sum  mer.

The raffle will take place  early in June at the hospital  auxiliaries friendship tea,  which is to be held in Roberts  Creek this year. Donations of  either wool or the finished knitted strips were made by many  people in the area. These were  collected and several work par  ties were held at the home of  Mrs. Shupe who supervises the  project. The finished article is  a beautiful, colorful rug, which  would be a lovely- addition to  any room.

'  Notes from. Pender  ���by Lorill  Kilborn  A LARGE number of ratepayers in the South Pender  Harbour  Waterworks   District attended  a   spirited  public meeting held by the water board April 27:  After   the   adoption   of   the     :   trustees' reports, the meeting  ���was opened for a discussion  period which proved to be  quite stormy. At one point  Chairman Markle Myers was  compelled    to    reprimand     a  source?   of   supply   from    Pak  Lake to Haslam Lake.  Further, questions dealt with  the right of non-users to apply  for disconnection and thus es-  capefurther tolls until they ac-  speaker who laced his remarks    tuaU     use   ^       ter   s/   ,  with profanity.

This does  not mean, in any way, that we  do not welcome and appreciate  our American visitors, we do;  but our greatest potential, and  repeating volume of tourist business by land is available rlglit  next door, in the lower mainland area.  The department of recreation  and conservation does an excellent job with its. magazine  'Beautiful, British Columbia'  but I would suggest that j when  ��� .coverihg,V''thVV'Sulns1iihe:rCoa^ j:  it'does ndtwreitnct^  age to two or three of the larger centres, particularly in  photographs, as has been done  in the -past. "'Within a two-mile  radius of Egmont we have  Some of the best and probably  most photogenic tourist attractions in the entire area. Three  adjacent lakes provide swimming and good trout fishing;  Jervis and Sechelt Inlets which  are acknowledged to be two  of the most scenic . crujrsing  grounds oh the coast and /are  noted for their salmon fishing  etc. There is also; plenty "of .'opportunity'.'for hiking orV n\contain climbing, if in the mood.  In addition we have the famous  Skookumchuek tidtd rapidsj un* >  available to tiie general public at the present time due,.to  lack of, access, but which, with ,  government co-operation, could  be one of Iho major tourist attractions in the province.

Jo Benjafield, Phyllis .Mc-_  Leod, Grace'* Harling, Dorden  Lee, Lorril Kilborn and Dorothy Bosch attended. Business  transacted at this ''meeting���  no comment, as, unfortunately  for me, - male reporters were  taboo. (Be fun to know,  though). However,- if these girls  are willing to brave the rigors  of the Egmont road, in it's present condition, to attend a  meeting it augers well for the  enthusiasm of the club.  A luncheon, a fund raising do  sponsored by the Egmont members of the B&PWC, was held  at the home of Lily Duniop on  May 3. Twenty-one ladies from  Egmont and Pender Harbour  were present, despite the stormy   weather,   and  once  again  our gals proved that, in making  money,-they are hard to beat.  They far exceeded the quota  set.   ���/ -l   ;  - .#  The' door prize' was ' won < by  Helen Bathgate, and' the apron  - raffle ��� by Rita Higgs lof Selma  Park/ ,both prizes .being donated  by',,Vi, Befntzen. .Egmont  members of ^the B&PWC- who  assisted in the luncheon were-  1 Dorothy Bopchv Mae and Helen  Bathgate, Vi Berntzen and Lily'  Duniop. Jean Jeffries was unable to^attend bjit contributed,  her share in making this event  ,a success.

Eileen, Joyce's mother, took  this opportunity to have a  three-day rest in St. Mary's  Hospital, leaving Joyce to take  care of daddy Bob and brothers  Danny and David. We are glad  The Sechelt Peninsulo Time?, Wed., Moy 12, 1965 Page 15  J  to report that Eileen is now  back home, thoroughly rested,  and has resumed command of  the Robert L.

FISHERMEN   INJURED  Robin West, brother of John  West of Egmont, "was bidly  hurt when'a towline parted on  the herring seiner 'Belina' on  May 3. Robin, skipper of the  Belina, and crew member Har-'  ry Sampson, victim- of "the same  accident, were flown to Victoria Veteran's Hospital. Lat-  . est reports, are that Robin's in-  -juries' are serious and that his  condition is unchanged. .Sampson's injuries are believed to  be of a lesser nature than those  suffered by Robin.
