They are highway robbers, and  .phickeris    seem    to . be    their  specialty.  Now, a bear, as mentioned by  Jack MacGoon, is a gentlemanly fellow. At least, he lets  you know when he is on one of  his raids.    But not so that sly  ycoon.- .;,.,.."'��� '���  The other night, Mom wakes  me   up.     '{The   coon   is   here  .again," says she.  y My hunting instinct aroused,  I slip put of bed; - thro'w on a  ^dressing gowi^;*step^into ^lip--  /pers, grab; a* ilashl-ght and; gun  . -.W^tiifeTS^  hess followed "by Mom.By this  time the  dog* is barking furiously away back-ih the jungle.  He has the thing treed.    I inform   Mom,   showing   my   superior knowledge, "This will be  easy."    So we wind our arduous   way   through   briers   and  sallal over our heads and over  bluffs  (I never realized before  jhow extremely rugged this B.C.  ���coast is)  till we finally arrive  to where "Butch," the dog, is  barking   at   the   foot   of   the  largest   tree   in   the   vicinity.  Says I, expanding again on my]  superior knowledge,  "You  are  barking   up   the   wrong   tree,  Butch,  coons > only go yup  into  small  trees."    However,  when  I casually turn the light to the  itop  of  the  tree  there  is, Mr.  Coon.    I says to Mom, "Stand  over so he don't hit you wheri"  he comes down."    Now, I find  ;that to get the sights lined up  tis very difficult ��� peep sight  )and   flashlight   don't   seem ��� to  work together very well. Finally, I take a chance, and fire  in the general direction of the  varmint.   Nothing comes down.  Mom  looks   at  me  accusingly.  "Oh," I says, "that was just a  j warning shot.   I always do that  you know!"    Then I try lying  down to get a steady aim.    I  soon  get  up.    I  nearly  break  my  back,  aiming   straight  up.  /���Then   I   contemplate   lying on  one's back is a rather unorthodox way of hunting one would  Jsay.    However, -at last I manage to get a good bead oh the  beast.      Click!-    No    shells!  ."Where are the shells," I asks  Mom.   "Why ask* me?" she retorts    indignantly.     "Alright,"  "says I, "let's go home."  '   Next' night again, /'Dad!   The. ���'  coon is here again.;  Wake up!"  >;��� I pulls the blankets over my  head.    "All right!" Mom says.  ;'T11 ygo  get   Nels   (our  young  :son) to show you how."  Now here is a psychological  'puzzle. It takes half; an hour  every morning to get him up  in time for school/ This time  -in the middle of the night���- .  half a minute.  .

WRITER SCORNS  POST  OFFICE  AT GIBSONS  The Editor,  The Coast News.  Sir,���Having been a visitor  to Gibsons district this summer  and again this early fall, I- must  admit nature has been very  lavish with her blessings. I  also notice that the federal government has also been liberal in  providing Gibsons with a*splen-  did wharf. I would like tb be  yableto say thefsame of the federal P.O?"department,* re the  local, post office, with its genial  over-worked postmaster, where  possibly a wellrearned pension  is - long overdue/ However,  they should provide him with  more y help, and certainly more  accommodation.   They little two  filled ythe - gapr1years ago, but  how -the present: staff can hardly move around (even iii the  : slack "season) with most of the*  small floor space cluttered up  with parcels. How they manage without making many blunders during the Christmas season keeps one guessing. This  shortage of help, and the poor  accommodation, conies back on  the public, for, on occasion, I  have known the mail delivered  off the boat to the post office  around noon, and it has been  arpund 3 o'clock before being,  made available to the/public./  Anyone receiving mail that  calls for a quick reply, has only  half an hour to do so to be in  ; timefor the outgoing mail, 3:30  p.m., and this, sometimes after  waiting in a queue for an hour  or so in a cold driving rain, as  the only shelter provided for  the public is a five-foot lean-to.  .  This is an instance wnere  your live Board of. Trade and  Taxpayers' Association can do  some useful work, with the  assistance of your energetic  federal member, to have these  conditions remedied. I notice  the latter has just helped part  of North .Vancouver to, have  their mail .delivered, why hot  Gibs6ns?~i-with a larger population���as the federal post Office  department must receive very  many thousands of dollars revenue yearly from the local  office. i '.;���.'.;;  Visitor.

The Skipper, too, is fast becoming his old  easy-going self.. He has. lost that  wary look of the eye that seems  to be a peculiar characteristic  of both man and beast who  cross the path of the guy from  town, during the fishing season.  Although I have always ad-  mired_ the patience of the average fisherman as he" sits and  watches the end of his line  hopefully, the untiring patience  of the guy from town, as he sits  in the' middle of our living  room, surrounded^ by a weird  assortment of Lucky Louies,  Unlucky Fl o o i e s, spinners,  flashers and whatnots, leaves  me goggle-eyed with amazement. - Now that he is gone, life  seems -just a little bit drab and  dull. The guy from town certainly /adds a zip to Jiving, even  if it is in the shape of a fishhook stuck fast in the sole of a  running shoe, said shoe being  on one's foot at the time of the  accident.  MAJOR UNDERTAKING  . The- picture of the guy from  town-preparing for one day's  fishing; is a sight long to be remembered. The day before the  great event, he gets up early in  the morning, snatches a bit of  breakfast, then gathers his fishing gear together. Next, he gets  a stool, spreads his gear over  the middle of the living-room  floor .arid sits down. There he  remains for hours, tying knots,  fixing hooks and straightening  lines. .The only sure way of  getting him to leave his task for  ;a rest is to tell him dinner is  ready.  . One .would naturally think  that .all these preparations  would result in a big catch of  fish next day. Alas and alack,  more often than not, the guy  from town comes back from his  fishirig. trip with a long face,  and still longer tale about the  "big "one" that got away. Sometimes this story is corroborated  by, the unmistakable evidence  of a missing Lucky Louie. Is  ' the giiy, from town discouraged  rl^y3ii_H_mfOTt��ria^^  Notybnyyour life!" Next riiprri-  ing, .bright and early, the preparations for another day's fish-  ingybegin all over again, hooks/  lines and sinkers strewn all  over the. living-room floor, and  the Skipper and I doing gymnastics *in order to avoid step-  pingon a hook or skidding on a  flasher.  MEMORY REMAINS       '   ' �����;  Long after the guy from town  has ydeparted,   his   memory is  "still with us.   It may be in the  form of a stray hook appearing  "���frb-riy goodness knows where.  These stray hooks are far less  formidable than the hidden  weapons that tuck themselves  slyly-away afriong the cushions  of the chesterfield. The Skipper still retains a memory of  the time he sat down on a cushion, and started up with a yell  of anquish, nearly turning the  air blue with the force of his  language. Now, for weeks after  the guy frprii town has departed, the Skipper will  carefully  . feel among the fluffy Ndepths of  a cushion before seating him-  y'se\iyyy ';",;. ;���:-,'���',������ ���:' .���  Some, times I have been  tempted to ask the guy from  town if it would not be cheaper  z to buy avlarge fish at the wharf,  to   exhibit   to   admiring   and  yprivibus friends, but something  always   .tells  me  to  hold   my  '..'tongue:' Far be it from me to  -banish.. the light from the eye  of an ardent fisherman, who  beholds in the-weird array of  fishing; gear he buys, the fulfillment : of' a great dream. After  all, . don't we all have pur  dreams?' -''.,'  In: spite of the disturbing influence the guy from town has  upon i our rather uneventful  way; of life, it would indeed be  a sad day for us if ever the  steamer failed to bring him with  the first bright clays of summer.  May he-long be; spared to litter  up bur living-room with his  fishing gear, and affect us with  a little of that enthusiasm that  Gibsons United W.A.

By DOROTHY GREENHILL  PENDER HARBOUR ��� The  bazaar at Irvine's Landing  November 8, and its results  were discussed at the monthly  meeting of the Women's Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital  when the ladies met at the hospital on November 14. The  combined efforts for the bazaar  netted a total of over $500  which will be spent on some  much needed equipment, and  comforts for the patients, and  will be reported on as soon as  the purchases have been completed.  The raffle, tickets for which  were bough by friends over a  wide area, and which helped  considerably to boost the total  amount, was drawn during the  afternoon, in the presence of a  large gathering, Miss Le Barr,  matron at the St. Mary's Hospital, being asked to draw the  lucky numbers. First prize went  to Neil McCloud ��� a pressure  Cooker. Second prize was won  by Ed Wray, and the third by  Terry Dubois.  A 15-lb. turkey, all dressed  and trimmed with parsley and  cellophane, was raffled on the  day of the bazaar in the hall,  and was won by Mr. Crush, who  generously gave it back to be  auctioned, the result of the  raffle and the auction on that  bird, brought the total of $36.90.  As all prizes and the turkey  were donated, our sincere  thanks "are tendered to all those  who gave such valuable gifts,  and also for the donations we  received from various other  sources.  There are many new residents  in the Harbour that we would  like to get acquainted with, and  we have elected a visiting committee to call on as many as  possible, with an invitation to  come along to some of our  meetings and "meet the ladies"  and see just what we are doing,  and we shall be delighted to  welcome them as members if  they wish to join in our activities. No sooner is the bazaar  over than we start preparing  for the next event. We have  just bought yards of pillow-  casing to make up, and would  appreciate any help with the  sewing.  Nominations for officers for  the coming year are being dealt  with, and elections will take  place at the next monthly  meeting, Friday, December 12.  Will all members please make  an effort to attend, as.npmina-  ^ibh^^iH^-tKiIy���-tie���accepted  from members present at the  meeting, and on the forms provided for voting by the committee in charge. It is your  duty, if you are a member, to  scast your vote for the officers  who will be responsible for conducting the activities of the  auxiliary for 1948. Make a note  of the date and come and vote.  We welcome as a member  Mrs. Brookes of the Harbour,  and hope she will enjoy many  happy hours with us.  Sechelt to Press  For Incorporation  By ARIES  SECHELT ��� Meetings of the  Sechelt Improvement Association are well worth while.  Everyone has a chance to say  something and new ' ideas are  forever welcome. There is a  nice friendly atmosphere and  we see old friends and meet  new ones so come along won't  you? Remember the second  Friday of every month. There  were 27 members present at the  last meeting, which is not bad  but not good enough. President  L. S. Jackson was absent and  vice-president W. A. Morrison  was in the chair.  Incorporation of the Sechelt  area was discussed at length,  and it was unanimously agreed  that the time had come to press  for incorporation. It was felt  that with local taxes, roads,  waterworks, and other public  services could.be improved. A  committee was appointed to go  into the matter, consisting of  Father Baxter, Mrs. Elliott, Mr.  Archer and Mr. Morrison.  Mr. J. Ellis, school principal,  spoke on his plans for the financing and erecting of a gymnasium on the school grounds *  and asked the support of the  association on ��� this project.  President Jackson and secretary  Parker were appointed to act  for the association. Dr. A. Inglis  spoke on the need of more  nursing facilities on the peninsula and intimated that a  V.O.N, nurse might soon be  available for Sechelt.  A letter from J Shirras, assistant commissioner of police,  was received, indicating that  the road between Pender Harbour and Hopkins Landing was  now considered a through highway and suitable warning sighs  would be erected as soon as  they are available.

MoCazua  " MinUtmrqf National Jteoenwa  WITH reference to the recent  correction by Mrs. Nickson  on this column. It was not my  intention to write up the  pioneer days of the school. I  had merely made note of the  difference in the schooling during my- time and Miss Tidy was  the teacher here when I first  came. Had I intended to write  an article on the early school  district, I naturally would have  called upon some of these  pioneers for the correct information  The reason for this omission  is that at the panel discussion  to take place at the next P.T.A.  meeting this will be one of the  important items on the agenda,  the old days and the new, and  I understand that Mrs, Nickson  will be invited to this meeting  so it will be nice to see a good  turnout of all the oldtimers and  also the newcomers. All interested in the school and the education problems of our children  should attend these meetings,  so don't forget we will have  Mrs. Jackson, Mr. Marsden,  Mrs. Burns, Mr., Funnell and  Mr. Ritchie, and ' possibly Mr.  Trumen and Mr. Elliott. There  will be discussion of construction of new schools in this district. So we would like to see  as many of the pioneers as possible and of course we also hope  to hear Mr. Ellis's pet project,  the school gym. So it was unintentional on my part to leave  out the first teacher. I. am  leaving that for this important  meeting. The errors in spelling  the nsmes Morse and Molberg  are the printers and not mine.  *���������**  Well, Major Hoople has given  the men around here a whale  of an idea what to do with that  extra hair we see curling on  their shoulders these days. He  wove it into horse collars in  his spare time. What about  plaiting it into rugs you fellows? No fooling, I have been  watching a young man at work  recently with a red bandana on  his head with the loveliest long  curly hair any girl would be  proud to own. At first I thought  it was a girl but when I saw it  wrestling a six-foot log I found  out I was mistaken. After all  we have a perfectly good barber here in Graham Collison  who has served his country  faithfully and well for 5% years  overseas and has his little business started on the Porpoise  Bay road and he tells me he has  been forced to take odd jobs to  help himself along.  .*   .*    *  We understand that Miss Beatrice Marchant has been invited  as guest speaker at the next  P.T.A. meeting at .

The march past  was very well organized, although I could have wished for  some of the old boys at the head  of the column. Those young  fellows are hard to keep up to  but aren't they smart? It is so  nice to think that the old and  new can have such comradeship, but I am hoping for the  time v/hen our new veterans  will have a more active interest  in Legion affairs.  The service was well conducted with addresses by Rev.  Father Baxter, Pastor Elliott,  President Brookman and Mrs.  W. K. Berry. Mrs. Gladys Pat-  erson Thomson sang "The Prayer Perfect," accompanied by  Mrs. Morrison, and Mr. Roberts  sang "The. Trumpeter," accompanied by Mrs. T. Turner.  In the evening the veterans  were entertained by the W.A.  and a good time was had by all  attending, with a skit by Comrades Turner and Roberts being  much enjoyed.

Makes Money  (Left  Over From Last  Week)  Coast News.  Dear Editor,���I wish to thank  "Shorty" Mc-Beer of McNaugh-  ton Point for his brief summary  of our mutual friend "Jock Mc-  Goon."  I must say I was greatly interested, if not somewhat displeased, in the birth and origination of our "Mutual Friend."  However I cannot hold against  him his place of birth, or the  fact that he even exists in this  troubled world, but why in the  name of all that's righteous  does he have to let vent off his  feelings on "Fish." These poor  little creatures of the "Seas"  who have never done harm to  anyone, yet whorii everyone  seems to gang up on during  certain seasons of the year.  Whether in creeks, lakes or in  the seas, people travel from  near and far just to try and play  havoc with, and make up stories  about (which no one believes)  these dwellers of the subterranean world. Now "Shorty"  I do believe there is something  (Fishy) about this life history  of our friend "Jack McGoon."  Also why blame the "Stork."  The Stork is one "bird" in this  world I really feel sorry for, he  is wrongly interpreted all over  this messy hemisphere, shoved  around from pillar to post (leading a dog's life) by all nationalities aging from "fifteen to  fifty." There are too many  people who have to blame  someone or something for any  errors that are committed  whether they are to blame or  not, and so the poor old Stork  is made the "Scape-Goat."  I sincerely believe, "Shorty,"  that you and Jack should turn  to your pen and ink more often  to let vent -with all your so-  called "Hot .Air," instead of  letting it go around our most  worthy "logging industry,"  then maybe our dear Editor will  let us have a column (or part  of one) in which you two can  roam around in your literary  daze and dreams, while I enlighten the reading public as  to what nonsense your pens are  trying to unfold.  I really look forward to your  nonsense every week and take  great pleasure in answering  you, so if you, Dear Lovable  and Gracious Editor (I bet no  one has called you that in  years) will bear with us, we,  I hope, will continue until  everyone has become so disgusted they cease buying your  paper..
