addressed the meeting, and gave
many fine suggestions, and offered their services in helping the
store management and directors, with their many problems.
Directors were advised to, meet
the store management, and report back to shareholders in
about three months, their findings and results. It is to be hoped
that a good turn out. at this next
meeting (date to be announced
later) will be much better than
at the last meeting. This is your
store, shareholders, and unless
you are there to register your
approval, or disapproval, then
things will only go on as you
wish or do not wish. Turn out,
and make this a real meeting.

There is a re-release by Kay  Kyser "You Say The Sweetest  Things, Baby". Not bad if you  are a Kyser fancier. Vocals are  smooth and harmonizing splendid.  If you like piano, Claude  Thornhill and his "Snow Flakes  and Duke Ellington with "Cottontail". The latter is more band  than piano, but still Duke at his  best. "Sophisticated Lady" is another Ellington that is worth  mention. .  Perry Como with "Far Away  Places" is a sweet rendition of a  lovely song. Take note of a new  one by Perry Como called "Forever and Ever".  Gertrude Nielsen and her "I  Want To Get Married" is okay,  but she is getting no younger  and this record shows it.  The Don Byas Quintet with  "Humoresque" and "Stormy  Weather" are just up to average.  Find time to hear Doris Day  singing "Someone Like You". A  gentle, ,but bouncy tune and Doris  giving forth with her inimitable  style of vocalizing.  "Lover Man" by 'Eddy Heywood is one that no one should  miss. That is if you prefer the  mellow type of music. This is  backed with "Begin The Be-  guine", something I am positive  everyone will enjoy.  Mel Torme fans may find enjoyable, "A Foggy Day In London Town".  The Teddy Wilson Trio and  "As Time Goes By". Teddy is  nostalgic on this. Kay Paten  singing better than Bergman.

Work began in earnest on the  plays and there were several  rehearsals each day. There are  three one-act plays and a shadow play by Ted Parnwell. The  names of the plays are as follows:  His First Dress Suit  Be Home by Midnight  Who Murdered Who?  A meeting of the Dramatic,  Club was held in Mr. Trueman's'  room on Jan. 5. Among the subjects discussed were: the holding  of the plays at Roberts Creek;  the admission fee; advertising  and tickets. It was decided to  hold the plays at Gibsons on Friday, Jan. 14, and at Roberts  Creek on Jan. 15. The admission  was set at 50c for the adults. A  free dress rehearsal will be shown  before the Elementary School  children on either Thursday or  Friday afternoon. However, the  Roberts Creek children will have  to pay.  Due tQ the slippery roads, the  school bus on which Hopkins  children ride has been late arriving at school.  There was no Teen Town  Dance at Gibsons on Friday, Jan.  7 because the Teen Town forgot  to apply for the School Hall.  Everyone hopes the Teen Town-  ers will be able to get the hall  next time- the dance is due. If  there is no dance the week-end  will be dull for most kids.  JANUARY  16  From the 10th to the 14th  everyone in the school was busy  making preparations for the Dramatic Club plays. Several periods were missed by everyone  and the poor teachers didn't know  whether they were coming or going. Still they too were kept  busy directing the plays.  This year our stage manager  was Bill Pye. He and his assistants, Ted Parnwell and Earle  Foulkes, were kept busy all week  getting the scenery set up and  attending to the lighting prob-,  lems. It was planned to wallpaper the scenery in the Gibsons  hall but since the paper /could  not be brought in quickly enough  from Vancouver this plan had  to be abandoned.  A free dress rehearsal was  given for the benefit of the Elementary school children on  Thursday, Jan. 13. Everyone did  very well including Ted Parnwell, who put on a Shadow play  without any previous rehearsal.  On the evening of Jan. 14 the  plays were successfully presented before a full house in the  School Hall. ���  The school bus was chartered  on Jan. 15 and the whole group  went to Roberts Creek and put  on the plays before a good-sized  audience at the Community Hall.  After the plays were over the  Teen-agers planned to hold a  dance, but it had to be called  off because the bus driver would  not wait.  Everyone who went to Roberts  seemed to enjoy themselves and  to prove this they all sang songs  on their way home on the bus.  The only trouble was no one  sang the same song at the same  time.  The  names   of  the   plays   and  the cast were:  BE HOME BY MIDNIGHT  Roddy Mackenzie, Chrissie  Stewart, Dorothy Stewart, Ronnie Godfry and Jackie Nestman.  THE FIRST DRESS SUIT  June Moir, Maldy Thomas,  Betty Grant and Don  Graham.  THE  DOCTOR���A  shadow play.  "Dr."     Ted    Parnwell,     Earle  Foulkes and Wally Sandberg.  WHO MURDERED WHO?

Ushers ���: Gordon Macdougall,  Edith Farnham, Dorothy Sullivan, Beverley Gray' and Eugene  Blomgren.  Approximately $100 was collected of which most will be  given to some charitable organization.  The Dramatic Club plans to  hold some more plays sometime  in April.  In the near future, there is  to be a basketball game between  Gibsons High School Seniors and  Sechelt Superior School team, at  the Gibsons School hall. There  will be an admission fee, and  everyone is invited to come and  support his team.  .=_��  WHERE  YOU GET MORE  FOOD  PER DOLLAR!

C. HOSPITAL 216,735 New Phones  Installed in B.C.  In Three Years  THE B.C. TELEPHONE Company and associated companies  operating in B.C. recorded the  greatest three-year period in  their history from January 1,  1P46, to January 1 this year, with  an increase of 48,280 telephones  for a total to date of 216,735 in  the  entire system-  The B.C. Telephone Compsfiy  alone gained nearly 46,000 new  telephones.  These figures highlight a review by the company of the postwar period in which a record expenditure of nearly $15,000,000  was made on central office and  outside plant equipment in three  years.  During that time, equipment  in some form or other was added  in practically every exchange  area in the company's territory.  Expenditures planned for 1949  will exceed those of any other-  year in the system's history.  15,633 IN 1948  The review states that 1948  accounted for a gain of 15,633  telephones in the entire system,  second largest increase in the  company's history. This was  made in the face of the most severe spring floods in B.C. history, heavy year-end wind and  snow storms, and continued  shortages of all types of telephone   equipment.  Damage caused by flood and  storm in 1948 cost the company  approximately $220,000 in repairs, retarding to a considerable  extent the central office and  outside plant development program.  Both flood and snow taxed the  manpower resources of the company to the limit, plant men  working long hours, sometimes  all night, through week-ends and  on holidays funder trying conditions, to restore lines- During  the flood period operators stayed at their posts where rising  waters threatened the exchanges  themselves.  During this emergency dozens  of special lines were strung in  various areas of the province  for the benefit of organizations  engaged in fighting the flood.  While 'actual telephone increase last year was below the'  1947 record of more than 20,000  instruments, both local and long  distance traffic set new records  in 1948.  Average business day local  calling in the system reached a  ���new high of more than 1,260,000  conversations, compared with a  corresppnding figure of about  1,190,000 in 1947- Total number  of long distance calls filed  throughout the territory was approximately 5,897,000, compared  with a total of 5,322,389 the  previous year.  1.500.000 UNFILLED  Despite a marked increase in  new telephones in 1948, however, demand for telephone service continues at a high level,  the review states. This has been  largely due to B.C.'s record 323  per cent, population growth from  1941 to 1948.  At year-end the system had  24,165 applications on hand for  service, a situation not peculiar  to B.C., officials point out. There  are more than 1,500,000 unfilled  orders for new telephones  throughout   North   America.  At January 1 this year, employees of the B.C. Telephone  Company and associated companies totalled about 4,200 compared with less than 4000 at the  same time last year. The 1948  peak was reached in August during summer holiday relief when  New Qttiarters  N����A��$$   .. for district police officers  ONE THING is certain in Sechelt and that is  that no one is going to break out windows  to get in "jail.

The plane after run of about a block or so,  took off, went staight up and just got over  the ship in a straight bank up.  The pilot made it alright, but with nothing  to spare.  Stunting is alright if the party is far enough  away from  people but  when other lives  are  Election Legislation .  STATEMENTS by Inspector of Municipalities,  B. C. Bracewell last week clarifying the  status of land-holders under the Veterans Land  Act was an assurance to these veterans that  legislation is now being evolved which will  leave absolutely no room for argument regarding their, voting rights in future village elections.  Apparently the amendment to the Village  Municipalities Act which would have established without dispute the VLA land-holder's  name upon the assessment roll, was scheduled  to come up at the last session of the Legislature,  but was shelved at the last minute to make  way for other legislation.  The office of the Inspector of Municipalities was, *it seems, unaware that this expansion of the Village Municipalities Act had not  under construction. Perhaps now we will get  something as nice for our B.C. Police. They  have been a long suffering body of men here,  unable to get suitable houses. And in looking  back over a period of years it would seem to"  us that hundreds if not thousands of dollars  have been paid out in rentals and still we have  nothing.  The police have been pushed from pillar  to post in their search of suitable accommodation! We know we have to have the police  here so let us see that they have a decent  place in which to carry out their duties. Forestry station now. Police station and court  house next. We have the materials at hand  and we have many good tradesmen, carpenters, plumbers, just dying to go to work. So  now is the time to up and at 'em.  .  .  .  .   a word to the  wise!  endangered and property at stake then it- is  time somecne took action to prevent such action.  There have been too many chances taken  in this area by pilots. They skim the house  tops, the wharves and pull some very foolhardy stunts.  It is only going to take one smash up here  to really put the airplane business on the rocks.  We trust that the proper authorities were  notified of the recent stunting and that some  action can be taken to prevent  a recurrence.  . . . assurance to VLA holders  gone forward to the Legislature as planned and  consequently, some of the villages throughout  the province were not notified by that office  that the change was-pending.  However, the Inspector said that the  amendment definitely would be coming up at  the next session which commences on February 8, and that it was a pretty safe bet that  it was to be approved and made law.  But although the expansion of Section 35  of the Act will remove all possible doubt from  the right of a VLA holder to vote, -it will  still be up to those who cherish their privilege of votng to see that their names are included on the VotersTList, and if not, to take  proper action'1 to see that the matter is corrected at Court of Revision and not left to the  election day when it is too late to do anything  about it.  A Personal Invitation   _._ comes from Mr. Gargrave  IN THE "Letters to the Editor"  column this  week is one from Herbert Gargrave,  M.L.A. which contains an invitation to the  people of the district to submit to him opinions and advice on matters of local and provincial importance so that he may act upon  them in the interests of the district when the  Provincial Legislature convenes on February 8.  It is Mr. Gargrave's desire to serve all sections of the constituency he represents, and as  he explains, the only possible way he can do  this is by receiving such opinions and advice  from all shades of opinion.  A member of the- legislature, is by reason  of the demands upon his time at Victoria, unable to personally visit the different areas in  his constituency and to meet as many persons  or groups as he would like to.  But Mr. Gargrave may be reached by letter any time during the session at the Legislative Buildings in Victoria.  Since the provincial house closed last  Spring in a blaze of railroaded legislation, sev  eral community matters have arisen in this  district which will require the attention* of its  elected representatives.  No doubt the organizations which have  formulated such actions ap protests regarding  the condition of highways in the district and  the need for dental services and other matters  which need to be corrected, have or will get  in touch with Mr. Gargrave to enlist his cooperation in the achievement of their aims.  But the medium of the written word is  also the. best way in which individuals can  bulwark the demands of organized groups, and  often a lot of letters from individuals carry  more weight than one letter from an organization.  Mr. Gargrave has invited us to write and  tell him how he can be of the most assistance  to us with the assurance that all communications will receive prompt attention.  Let us accept his invitation: for in so doing we will be acting in the best interests of  the future welfare of the community.  v t d Utenwaan ��ffi2��! la��� Lighter Mood -leader's Right  approximately  4300   were  listed de       f ^   IWA disclosed Thurs-  on system payrolls.

Yesterday, she  very nearlv succeeded, trapping'  me momentarily (with the assistance of a giant clerk) under  the brim of a fur felt apparently designed for one of the  larger heads among the Horse  Guards.  My wife feels that I do not  look old enough to be a success  in the business, world. It is true  that I have the face of a small  malicious Boy Scout. He can  have it back anytime he wants it.  SEVERE HANDICAP  Whatever advantages such a  deceptively cherubic puss may  bring, it's a severe handicap for  any man who fancies himself  mature. A man has a tough en-  oug time facing the world without a facade that might be on  the cover of American Boy.  My wife's theory has been that  a conservative hat (or, as she  put it, "the kind that grown-up  men wear") might have the effect of making me Ipok my age,  which, God knows, is grown-up  enough, and that the big money  might start pouring in at any  moment.  With this thought in mind, I  was firmly railroaded yesterday  into the carpeted hush of an exclusive hat shop, sinking into  the coma which engulfs me under  such cifciftnstances, and found  myself jacked-up under an '"assortment of male millinery that  will make raw material for a  month of nightmares.  "He looks like a six-and^sev-  en-eighths," the gigantic clerk  announced, making it sound as  if he ought to hurry to the midgets' department. With that he  slapped a tape measure around  my dome, just under the place  where it comes to a point, and  cinched it tight, causing my-eyes  to bulge like Concord grapes.  While I was massaging the  blood back into my pulsing .,  temples, King Kong looked about  for something which would: be  suitable, letting his eyes linger  on a pile of bright school-boy  caps.  "He looks a little like the snap  brim type," h& suggested, fixing  me with a gaze that suggested  I had recently been washed  ashore on a high tide. Before I  could protect myself he'd crammed a chocolate-brown number  over my ears, giving the rim a  vicious snap that rattled my  vertabrae like castanets.  I groped blindly to the nearest  mirror and lifted the brim with  a herculean effort. By tilting my  head back I was just able to  see what seemed, in the mirror,  a frightened face crawling ���out  from under, a circus tent. At^that  point the >brim snapped7 Back  hurling me  bodily    across X the  shop. _ xy;y  I don't think they really knew  they were licked until the fur felt.  The fur in this felt was,* if I ahv  not mistaken, the last earthly  remains of a dromedary camel.  It looked as if it needed nothing  but a quick trip to the barber's  before decent interment in the  family plot.  10 YEARS OLDER  Powerful as he was, the salesman was barely able to pack this  thing in its box from the rear of  the shop. When he lifted the lid  I sprang back, expecting a shaggy dog to leap out.  While my wife held me by the  halter the man heaved the fur  felt upwards and let it fall heavily on my head. I felt my knees  buckling under me and then the  darkness closed in. Somewhere a  woman screamed.  When the fur felt had finally  been peeled from my noggin my  wife hustled me through the  crowd into the open air once  more, still bare headed, but look-  ing a good ten years older.  of opinion.  I hope to be in the district  within the next few weeks and  I will be glad to meet any individuals or groups desirous of  making representations.  Sincerely yours,  H.  Gargrave, M.L.A.

The paper suspended publication  last week for "economic reasons."  The same week, the Glace Bay  Gazette, Canada's only labor  daily, reverted to a weekly publication because of mounting  costs.  In 1948, nearly 20 newspapers  ceased publication "because they  were unable to complete the in-  creased-cost, increased-revenue  manoeuvre," according to a report by T. F. Mowle, speaking to  the American Newspapers' mechanical staffs annual meeting. "Advertising rates reached a maximum beyond which advertisers  would not go,, and subscription  revenue was unable to fill the  gap caused by increased costs."  In 1947, 34 newspapers closed  up for this reason. In the period  from 1938 to 1948, over 300 dailies, or�� one out of every six in  business, has closed or merged  with its competitor.

And when Simon  saw that through laying on of  the Apostles hands the Holy  Ghost was given, he offered them  money, saying, give me also this  power, that on whomsoever I  lay hands, he may receive the  Holy Ghost. But Peter said, unto  him, Thy money perish with  thee, because thou hast thought  that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast  neither part nor lot in this matter:- for thy heart is not right  in the sight of God. Repent  therefore of this thy wickedness,  and pray God, if perhaps the  thought of thine heart may be  forgiven Thee. For I perceive  that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Then answered Simon, and  said, Pray ye to the Lord for  me, that none of these things  which ye have spoken come upon me. And they, when they had  testified and preached the word  of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel  in .many villages of the Samaritans.  The Acts, 8. 17-25.  B.C. Aluminum  Scheme Being  Discussed Again  NEW PROSPECTS for the development of ,an aluminum refinery in British Columbia were  reported last week as J. L.  Reynolds, vice-president of the  Reynolds Metals Co., of West  Virginia discussed possible power sites in the province with  Lands Minister E. T. Kenney.  Any statement concerning construction of a plant would be  premature, Mr. Reynolds said,  but he disclosed he is obtaining  data from the government, on  sites and that his company might  undertake surveys later in the  spring.  This latest development follows a year of study by the Aluminum Co. of Canada of the  feasibility bf establishing a refinery here.  McNeely Dubose, vice-president of the Aluminum Co. of  Canada is expected here later  this month and government officials are hopeful he will outline plans for a $1,000,000 survey.  The company has already obtained data on power sites on  Chilco Lake and in the |_utsuk,  Whitesail and Ootsa La_i_e system, and it is understood here  that the latter group capable of  producing 1,500,000 horsepower,  is favored.  Mr. Reynolds was not prepared  to discuss the size of the plant  his company is considering for  British Columbia, explaining that  it would be governed by power  possibilities, and other conditions.  The Aluminum Co. of Canada  has proposed a" power development costing $100,000,000, a $70,-  000,000 plant and a $130,000,0*00  townsite or a total investment of  $300,000,000. The town would  have an anticipated population  of 50,000-  The Reynolds company, which,  in addition to refining bauxite  ores, produces a large number of  aluminum products including  foils for industrial uses, operates  refineries at Listehill, Ala., Long-  view", Wash., and Troutdale, Ore.  Bauxite for these operations is  drawn from deposits controlled  by the company in Arkansas,  Haiti and Jamaica.  In 1947 the company reported  total profits of more than $8,000,-  000 on sales of $129,000,000.
