Seaside Park's popularity was  at its height just prior to the first World War. The development of other resorts in the area depleted interest in Seaside  but its eclipse is not yet. A thriving pulp mill is operating and  expanding along side,.known-as Port Mellon. The mill is that  -of the^Sorg Pulp Co.JLtd.- The Company, has purchased the  Seaside property including its hotel and is now carrying out  ��'On: improvement and expansion program. This includes the  installation of modern equipment and machinery, cafeteria  and modern homes. The population of Port Mellon and Seaside is 800. Its thriving industry produces daily 160 tons of  unbleached kraft pulp and each month turns out over 1 V_>  million feet of lumber. The above picture was made at an  elevation of 4,000 feet. The entire pulp production of this  mill, like other pulp._gnd paper mills in B.C. is sold in the  United States, helping acquire much needed American dollars.  In 1946 the Pulp and Paper Industry in B.C. secured over $40  millions in American dollars for B.C. and Canada.  IN THE MAILBAG . . .  KLEINDALE  By MRS.  O.

They  were told at Halfmoon Bay that  the Union was not calling into  Pender Harbour and they  would have_ tb get off the boat.  When some asked if they could  stay on and take a chance on  the boat going into Pender they  were told that they would be  put off at the next stop, which  would have . been Stillwater,  and at their own expense. They  got off the boat without knowledge of transportation or way  of getting to their destination  whatsoever. They did get a  taxi and when they arrived at  Pender Harbour the yUnion boat  was in unloading the freight. It  was an absolute disgrace and  the crew of the Union was sarcastic^ insulting and rude to the  passengers. Those.; people had  paid their fare to Pender Harbour and then 4vere put off the  boat and had to pay their own  taxi-fare from Halfmoon Buy  "to Pender Harbour. I am sure  they have lost quite a few more  passengers that the Jervis Express and Gulf lanes will acquire.

Women Noticeable by  Absence at Polls  Says Sinclair  NORTtt VANCOUVER. ��� Ottawa could "well do with a  better representation of women," James Sinclair, M.P., told  North Vancouver} Junior Chamber of 'Commerce/Thursday. .  Y The :i absence of women on  Capitol hill is "very notice-  .able," he ; said; "and it takes  woman to speaik with eloquence  on problems of family significance,"  The low ration of women  M.P.'s he suggested, might derive from the fact that "it takes  a top.' flight Woman candidate  to beat a second rate man at  the polls."  Mrs. L. C.  Passes October 25  ROBERTS CREEK���Mrs. Louisa  McKinnon passed away Saturday evening, October 25,  1947, at the home of her devoted daughter, Mrs. Ruth Mitchell.

By next summer it is expected that an -aerialyfeable will be  strung between Slchelt, Wakefield, and Wilson Greek, giving  private line service in these  areas. A second Sechelt-Vancouver circuit will be installed  and possibly a fourth Gibsons-  Vancouver circuit, also by next  summer, and a^ circuit at Redroofs/' yyYY-  Two new switchboards capable of handling an ultimate of  160 lines have .been ordered.  Delivery was promised for  March, 1947, but to date the  boards have not arrived.  Switchboard for Gibsons is  expected in December.  By EARLE GRAY  ON FRIDAY, October 17, plans were brought forward at the  monthly P.T.A. meeting to erect a community hall at  Sechelt. The need for a hall at Sechelt, such as the one suggested at the P.T.A. meeting, is imperative. The school children need a gym, and so does the Pro Rec. During the winter  the school children must take their physical training period  (provided for on the school curriculum) in the rain or do without it. The proposed hall would provide a solution to this  problem.  It would also provide a court for the badminton club  and a dance floor for Teen Town. The P. T. A., the Sechelt  Improvement Association, the Board of Trade, and Teen Town  could use the hall to hold their meetings in. The community  could use it for plays and concerts, thus providing an outlet  for local talent. In such up and coming communities as  Sechelt and Selma Park, a community hall is of infinite importance.  These plans are to be further discussed at Sechelt Improvement Association, Board of Trade, and Teen Town  meetings. Under the present plan representatives from these  organizations will constitute the board supervising construction. Thus the new hall will have the complete backing of  organizations of good standing. Already Teen Town has  promised to support the project with financial aid to the best  of their ability.  If this project is to be a success the people must get  behind it and give it their full support and co-operation. We  must unite our efforts to bui/d one good, substantia/, and  practical hall, centrally located. It is better to have one  large, well-organized, and well built hall, centrally located,  than two or three inadequate and decentralized halls. It is  beter to have a hall that will serve us well than one that we  have wasted both time and money on.  If the people realize all the advantages that a good community hall offers, they are bound to'co-ope rate. When the  building is completed, a fine monument to united efforts, the  people will be able to say with pride, "this is our building  for our use".  Because of these, reasons and many more, if you are  called upon to donate either time or money, do not hesitq,te,  but give generously and get behind the project. You are not  really giving, but buying something worthwhile for yourself.  Gibsons Board of Trade  Ask for Water Board  GIBSONS ��� The Gibsons and ���  District Board of Trade has  undertaken wide and far-sighted planning on a number of  projects concerning the devel"  ��� op^nt.-pf^is^arjea^-..;^^...^,,^^......^  The three matters considered  by the board to be of the most  concern at the present time are  the formation of a district  water board, the construction  of the Port Mellon Road, and  the inauguration of a police  office at Gibsons.  President J. P. Veitch and  special secretary P. G. McPher-  Mrs. Bowman Heads  Women's Institute  GIBSONS ��� Tuesday, October  21, the Women's Institute annual meeting was held in the  United Church Hall. Election  of officers for the new year  was the main business. Mrs.  Bowman was elected president  by acclamation; Mrs. Gertie  Corlett, vice-president by acclamation, and Mrs. Haley, secretary-treasurer, also by acclamation.  The five directors elected  were Mrs. H. B. Metcalfe, Mrs.  H. Knight, Mrs. Filley, Mrs.  Pilling and Mrs. Turner. Mrs.  Metcalfe is head of the building  fund, Mrs. Knight is in charge  of the citizenship group, also  home economics; Mrs. Bushfield  and Mrs. Bartle again accepted  the visiting of the sick; Mrs. Le-  fleure is again in charge of  agriculture with Mrs. Topolin-  ski as assistant.  Mrs. Knight is the convener  for the bazaar of Nov. 21. A  special meeting to discuss plans  for the bazaar will be held in  the United Church Hall, 2:30  p.m., November 4.  A hearty vote of thanks was  given the retiring officers, Mrs.  Knight, Mrs. Bartle, Mrs. Filley and Mrs. Perrochet.  The committee in charge of  the sick visiting was instructed  to send flowers to Mrs. Ross at  the General Hospital, and  something suitable and nice to  Mrs. Fred Soames.  COUNCIL MEETING .  Over 300 Applications  For Power Received by  PenlhsuSa Ti  son have returned from a trip  to Vancouver and Victoria concerning these points. Interviews  concerning the water problem  ��� were^'lield-" witAr-Dr.1 A.J;- Cleveland, of the Vancouver and District Water Board, and with  Major Farrow of Victoria. In  view of the urgent need for  running water not only for  domestic use but also for agricultural and dairying needs they  suggested a survey of the entire Sechelt - to - Gibsons area  with the object of setting up a  metropolitan water district. Mr.  Lane, legal council to Major  Farrow, gave some advice and  heartening encouragement concerning the financing of -he  huge project.  An interview with Dr. Car-  ruthers, deputy minister of public works, concerning the construction of the Port Mellon  road, was likewise encouraging.  Dr. Carruthers stated that the  government's prime concern /1  the matter of roads was the  maintenance of stabilized highways and lifelines to industry.  Since the Port Mellon Road  would fall under the latter  category Dr. Carruthers felt  that it would receive consideration.  Further interviews were held  with the department of reconstruction, the department of  education, and with Police Deputy-Commissioner R. Peachy.  The reconstruction department offered to send officials to  this area to make surveys and  give advice to local councils  concerning zoning plans and  problems.  The department of education  assured support in the Port  Mellon Road project in order  to enable students to obtain at  Gibsons High School facilities  denied them at Port Mellon.  Deputy-Commissioner Peach.3'  stated that if existing obstacles  can be overcome a provincial  police officer will be stationed  in the Gibsons area.  A final interview with the  deputy-assistant minister of  agriculture brought to light a  land-clearing scheme which  migh possibly be inaugurated  in this district. This program  would permit bona fide farmers  to have their^ acreage cleared  with government equipment at  very moderate cost.  In summarizing his report to  the executive of the board of  trade, Mr. Veitch affirmed that  in his opinion the implementation of the water, road and  land projects would portend to  vast development of the Sechelt  peninsula and West Howe  Sound.  AT A RECENT executive council meeting of/the Sechelt  Peninsula Board of Trade, the  extension of light and power on  the peninsula was discussed.  Under the auspices of this  board, applications for light and  power have been collected.  Though this list is not yet complete it already contains some  three hundred narnes,, To this  should be added the:/heieds .of  our numerous logging establishments, machine shops, business institutions, and the Pender  Harbour hospital.  A letter from the board has  been dispatched to the B. C.  power commission requesting  an immediate survey of the  light and power needs of the  area from West Sechelt to Pender Harbour, inclusive.  3  ���tyvrcenn  9 VTH010TA 2  THE COAST NEWS���Friday, Oct. 31, 1947  Don't Waste Precious Hours  in Slow Travel!

ERIC INGLIS  GENERAL  TRUCKING  and FUEL  Gibson's Landing  Selma Park  Hairdressing Shop  ���  A Complete  Hairdressing  Service  ���  DOLLY  JONAS  Phone for Appointments  ���Letters To The Editor  Editor, The Coast News.  Sir,���I have heard certain  rumors, to the effect that a car  was seen in the vicinity of Middle Point, its occupants several  men in white uniforms carrying butterfly nets. These gentlemen, it is further rumored,  were enquiring for none other  than Jack McGoon.  Now, in order to dispel these  rumors I thought that for the  benefit of. those readers who  actually read your worthy  .paper and not those who upon  receipt of it immediately carry  it outside where their plumbing is located, I would relate  the story of "Jack's" life.  He was bornion a little island  in the North Sea where his  parents raised him on fish. (Fish  ���a rare type of food noted for  its brain developing qualities.)  Upon his arrival at the McGoon abode his fond parents  debated whether to keep the  stork or throw Jack away but  finally decided' to keep both.  The stork was; then trained to  keep the family larder well  stocked with fish on which  little Jackie was raised.  His tremendous appetite soon  depleted the local runs of fish,  but luckily during a freak gale  a whale (a "fish" whale) was  washed ashore, which Jackie  proceeded to devour with great  relish.  As a result his brain developed quite rapidly and at the tender age of six he graduated  with top honors at the local college. He became quite famous  as a scientist, philanthropist and  explorer. He is believed to  have found the "Missing Link"  although no one there could remember losing it. He received  the highest honor of his country  by developing the self-hilling  potato (spud to you). This  potato resulted from his experiments in crossing a ���potato  with a mole. Tlte honor received by Jack was the ancient  "Order of the Boot."  He soon departed from his  native land and arrived in this  country���his one hope was to  show the people here the error,  of their ways and to teach them  how things were done in the  Old Country. However, he  soon learned the error of his  ways and that his former high  I.Q. rating gave him the rating  here of about a grade A moron.  This did.not deter his ambition, so after recently consuming great guantities of an  almost extinct species of fish  known as the codfish he has  now hit upon ah. idea for revolutionizing the logging industry by eliminating to a great  extent the expense of transporting logs from the woods tp  the water. !   ��� ' '    y  His idea is I believe to utilize  a by-product of the- logging industry���this by-product is produced in large quantities but to  date has been found to be of  little practical use���namely hot  air.  This by-product he hopes to  compress in cylinders . which  will be attached to each log, it  will then be released on the  rocket principle to propel the  log ��� thus eliminating- trucks,  etc.  Jack believes that this method  will at first be only practicable  WE ARE AGENTS FOR ALL BUILDING AND PLUMBING SUPPLIES  FOR IMMEDIATE  DELIVERY  Elk Brand or Belgium  Cement  INSUL   BOARD  CANEC  BOARD  KENMORE BOARD  BEAVER BOARD  Sylvor or OestoSite BOARD  Builders' Processed and Hydrated  LIME, SLACK LIME, ETC.

The school  officers are: President, Pat  Slinn; vice-president, Barry  Stewart; treasurer, Chuck  Kane; secretary, Sue Armour.  The school hall has been improved by being painted outside- and lined inside. Basketball players claim that there is  better vision because of the  lighter-colored walls ���> and it  seems true. . By the way, there,  is basketball practice every  Thursday night.  Mrs. Stalker has started a  dramatic club which should  interest many of the pupils. It  promises to be good.  It's nice to see Wilf Nestman  back at school . . . we missed  him. Wilf has been working  up the coast.  Welcome to Jerry Vannatta  from Shatter, California. (Eddy  Battison, please note.) Jerry is  in grade nine.  We are going to miss Pearl  and Qhuck Kane who are moving to Port Mellon. Seems Les  Far well is at Port, too. What  has Port Mellon got that we  haven't got?���Besides that!  CHARACTERS YOU KNOW  Jim (Froggy) Smith can't  seem to convince Mrs. Stalker  he's not in English VI.

She is still going around  with a dazed look on her face; _  not'" entirely due to" the fall;  There' is a certain grade nine  boy who has.a lot to do with it.  Earle Foulkes has a talent for  getting into trouble. One day  he is lighting firecrackers under  people and the next day he is  busy making the teacher's life  miserable by methods; known  only to him. He must spend  nights thinking up horrible  things.  It was nice to see Gloria Forst  and Iola King last week-end.  School doesn't seem the same,  without them.       .  At a Teen Town meeting recently Ruth Norris was nominated mayor; Claire Veitch,  treasurer; and Kay Coleridge,  M.C. They are already planning a Hallowe'en dance.
