United PTA met on  Friday the 15 in the Legion  Hall where plans were formulated for .a very busy fall and  winter season. One of the projects 'to be undertaken is the  forming of Pro-Rec, and Mr.  William Morrison will contact  the various bodies-concerned.and.  will generally attend to the business end of arrangements. It was  also decided to present Selma  Park community centre with the  PTA library. It was originally  a community centre project and  when the Sechelt Centre group  disbanded it was given to PTA.  It will now however, reach the  adult reading, public which was.  after all the prime factor in  these   books   coming   here.  It was originally/a gift of Mrs'.  Bernulf Clegg. We hope that the  .new library will be very popular as it will be easier to get at  and in the summer will be a boon  to the summer visitors. Other  affairs were discussed including  Hallowe'en which will be in the  hands of principal John Ellis  and school staff. The evening  was made most enjoyable by a  visit of Mr. Harry V. Corbett the  National Film Board representative introduced by Mrs. Francis  French.  Mr.  .Corbett   outlined   briefly  the method and reason for National  Films in outlying districts  and  that  their increasing popularity has given the field workers  a very busy* program to fill and  that those communities that did  not sign their contracts were deleted   from   the   film   circuit.   It  was   explained  that   the  money  paid   by  the   PTA  went  to   the  Receiver General and not to the  . Film Board as is sometimes erroneously stated. The film board  is a government.service and films  are   free.   The   collection   which  is  made  after the    showing    is  added to the PTA treasury. The  pictures were most enjoyable especially, the   one  on   "Canada���  the Land of Plenty" which showed   well  fed  people  in  restaur-  '( ants and night  clubs as against  the   starving   people   of   Europe  which   makes   one think   where  all this selfishness is. to lead us?v  When we have so much and others so little. It should be shown  to  everyone  in the  country  especially      those      addicted      to  griping about  the food  and the  prices.  Lucky we  are  to eat  at  all.  And the picture of Canada's  speckled trout showing the wonder spots oh the lakes with Bill  MacDonald having a whale of  a time reeling them in. Bill is  the brother-in-law of Dorothy  Morrison (Mrs. W. Morrison) of  Rockwood Lodge and it was especially interesting to us who  know Bill to see him in action.  This was in Technicolor and  very beautiful.  We hope to have more of these  evenings at PTA and now7 we  have Mr. Bob Cook as program  convenor. I'm sure we are in for  wonderful times this winter, es-  peciallv music and entertainment. It is getting a bit difficult  to fit everything in however.'  Too bad we have so many organizations with, the same object  in .view.  .'.  We understand that Mr. and  Mrs. Charlie_ Jordan of Porpoise  Bay have recently celebrated  the 63rd anniversary of their  wedding.   Auntie    and     Charlie  Jordan are well known to us  all and well respected and loved  by their friends. Charlie is as  active as ever and makes wonderful cedar chests and his wood  work is well known for miles  around as also is Auntie for her  wonderful crochet work. She is  not feeling so well lately but  we do hope they will be together  for   many  years   to   come.  Mr. and Mrs. Owre of Porpoise  Bay have resumed their work of  collecting ferns, this is really  something to see. The ferns have  to be uniform size, stems cut  iequal lengths when they are  packed in special' crates and  shipped to Vancouver where  they are used by florists * for  various decorations. Very interesting work and one that takes  some patience as the names of  various   ferns   must  be   known.  Our ferns are very beautiful  and we are sure great pleasure  is derived by the Owre's in walking the lovely trails these  beautiful autumn days.

They are once more  getting established after the  floods and have now returned to  Abbotsford.  A court of honor meeting was  held at the home of Mrs. Francis French recently for Patrol  leaders and seconders of the  local Girl Guides. Those present  were Helen Derby, Lorna Van  Kleet, Winona Pratt, Karen  Stockwell, Barbara Morrison,  and Mary Parker. Lt. Katherine  Nelson and Guide Captain Norma Melvin served the refreshments.

Shan Nichols and his orchestra were here.  They're always a treat.  Another of oiir former boys  who has been caught by Cupid,  our Tommy Rowbottonv was married Oct. 9 to Miss Evelyn Pierce  of Copper Mountain. Tommy was  one of our baseball heroes and  we wish them both the best of  luck and happiness.  Would like to send birthday  greetings to our George Taylor,  whose birthday is today. When  in Vancouver last week I was in  to- the hospital twice to see him  and he is looking very. well. So  hello George from all of us.  I hear two familiar faces are  up today for two days with us.  Mr. and Mrs. P. Browning. Tliey  are both looking well and enjoying the grand holiday they  are having. So hello to you both  from  the  gang  of  Brittania.  The Beach Ladies' Auxiliary  are having a bridge, whist and  cribbage on Saturday, so T hope  to  see  a  big turnout.  Wednesday at Townsite there  is a super-duper Bingo put on  by the Canadian Legion. You  can bet I'll be there and hope  a gang goes up.  Mr. and Mrs. J. Edwards arrived home after spending a  week in Vancouver.  Well folks7 its 1.45 a.m. so its  bed for me.

RENNIE  YOUR CORRESPONDENT regrets that the Granthams column-was missing in the last issue of the Coast News owing to  unforseten circumstances we  missed the mail ahd consequent-  ly^some o�� these, notes are rather  late being published.  7i In these days of speed of  travel, and services we are apt  to become complacent and take  for granted all the privileges of  niodern advancement. Such  thoughts came to me when considering the- innumerable advantages we of this generation  enjoy, such as our modern means  of travel. That seems to me to be  another blessing to be thankful  for. The writer of these lines  expresses this thought very well.  "THE PIONEERS"  By E. D. LAUGHLIN  O'er every modern luxury there  lies  The shade of ancient hardships.  He who flies  Across a continent on wings of  gauze  Threads the thin paths of meteors because  His   father's,     wingless,     earth-  bound, as they groped  Through marshland jungle, upward gazed and hoped.  The cars that roll so ceaselessly  today,  On -^velvet wheels along the concrete way,  Would  find no  highways  span-  '- ning hill and vale,  Had   not   the   drudging   oxcarts  blazed the trail.  Though poverty awaited where  the vast*  Stark Prairie arid horizon met  at last.  Yet was their goal���how priceless still it seems,  Unhampered   freedom   and   un-  trammeled dreams,  Hovels are mansions, homesteads,  broad estates,  And settlements are. cities now.  The-Fates  Caught up  chemeric  hopes,, abandoned  schemes,  And made a world more won-  derous   than their  dreams..-.  The pioneers who broke the  virgin soil  Ne'er garnered half the harvest  of their toil  To them the . wearing days behind the/plow,  To them., the aching limb, the  sweating, brow,  To them the-weary seedtime,  others  reap.  Today where'er they sowed.  To  them   is���sleep,  "Oh aviator," conquering realms  of blue,  A  haunting   specter, flies, along  with  you,  And vague-seen covered wagons  bear strange loads  Of  ghostly  pilgrims  down    the  long paved roads.  During the holiday weekend  the owners of summer cottages  were here to spend their last  vacation of the season. Among  visitors we noticed Mr. and Mrs.  Marion and their two daughters.

Briefly, the answer is:  A CREDIT UNION is an association of persons united by some  common b6nd or community of interest, joined together in a  co-operative endeavour for the following purposes:  1. To encourage thrift by providing a safe, convenient and attractive medium for the investment of the savings of ots mem-  . . XX bers. -    ���  2. To promote industry, eliminate usury, and increase the purchasing power of its members by enabling them to borrow for  productive or other beneficial purposes at a reasonable cost.  3. To train, its? members in business methods and self-government, and i bring them to a realization of the value of cooperation;  1848 ONE liUNDRED YEARS 1948  of achievement hove developed an idea into a world-wide institution  to help you .

It is very beautiful  branching out as it does in two  huge trees both from the same  root. The fire was well away  when first noticed and Mr. Ay-  lett came over from his office  ahd after quite an effort extinguished the blaze.  If our young men need something to do to use up all that  surplus energy there are quite a  number of elderly people here  who have pioneered this country  to make it nice for them to live  in. The same old people might  like the grass cut or the wood  chopped once in a while. So.  don't get disheartened, there is  lots to do of a constructive nature. Remember it takes years  for a tree like the Maple referred to, to grow.  Loyalty, Loyalty, wherefor  art thou? Speaking of the old  and the new, we have recently  been iri a little wordy . battle  over the old and the new. This  little paper was here first, and  we who undertook to gather the  news such as it is, knew full  well that it would be for free as  the kids say, now however, we  are coming along very nicely and  the pay cheque though perhaps  not much is always there and I  for one am quite satisfied to do  what I'm doing and for whom.  However, we would like the  people who used to be willing to  give us the news items to go on  doing so. It gets under the collar  so to speak when we find that  this little sheet has been ignored when our services were eagerly o sought in the beginning.  And remember, we were first  with  the News.  Had such a pleasant surprise.  Met an old friend from Ladner  who is now a resident of Sechelt.  We certainly will have a time  going over old times when we  get together which will be soon  I hope. Mr. and Mrs. Deane have  recently taken over the caretaker's duties at Opengo Lodge, the  summer residence of Mr. and  Mrs. Bryce Fleck and the Fleck's  are mighty lucky in having such  splendid people. They were with  the Rogers' family for many  years, most of them spent at  Cowan's Point. Welcome to Sechelt.

"I Friday, Oct. 22,   1948  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B. C.  Page Nine  By E. NESTMAN  COUNCIL Notes. Progress in  setting new trucking rates for  the village is still at a standstill.  New information received from  H. Gargrave, M.L.A. for this riding, intimates that other places  are having somewhat the same  trouble in this matter. Westview  ahd Port Alberni have a problem  on somewhat the same lines,  and are trying to get a new ruling on jurisdiction over Government wharves. Un,til this position  is clarified, there is very little  the council can do, so it.will be  left in abeyance, until more information to hand. ' ^  E. Korhonne of Keats, has  purchased the municipal float  for $20, and it will be moved as  soon as the* other float is moved  into position. The number of  boats on the float at this time  h_is become quite a hazard to  anyone using the place for landing, especially at night, and the  council feels that all- boats  should be moved off the wharf/  and the place kept clear, during,  dark winter nights.  School Board Notes: A new  office for the school board will  be opened this week in the village. It will be open Monday to  Thursday. 9 to 11, and 1 tp 4,  tclosed Friday, and opened Saturday morning. By-laws are being drafted to be presented to  public for the building of 3  schools, and additions to another. A 4 room Superior school  for Madeira -Park, a 3 room  school for Roberts Creek, a  Junior-Senior high school for  Gibsons, and addition of 2 rooms  to' Sechelt school. Annual general  meetings will be held in district  from now to Nov. 15* dates to be  announced later. Meetings are  for reports of year, and election  of representatives to Board.  Teachers here have as&ed for a  revision in their salary schedule.  W.A. Legion Notes: A meeting  was held in new Legion hall this  week, .by the Auxiliary although  the hall is far from being finished. Four new members were  initiated at the meeting, and  after lengthy discussion $75 was  voted to themen to purchase a  stove for the new kitchen. To  replenish our treasury, a bingo  and social evening will be held  at Mrs. Wardils.' Tea Rooms.  Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. Everyone is  welcome. On Nov. 5, Mrs. Gardner will hold a bingo and social  at her home. Everyone welcome.  Mrs. Bartle has arranged with  the women to have poppies distributed io the district, so if the  ladies should miss you, be sure  should have a popy, for Remembrance Day, "Lest we forget."  W.I. Notes: The whist drive  held at the home of Mrs. H.  Metcalf, was greatly enjoyed by  all. First prize was won by* Mrs.  Corlett, second by Mrs. Pilling,  and consolation by. Mrs. Dickson.  The proceeds, in aid of the  Building Fund, were most gratifying, and all expressed the hope  that a series of these afternoon  whist drives,- and get togethers,  will be held frequently during  the winter months.  Govt. Road Work: A change  in personnel on Govt, road work  has been made. Mr. Cartwright,  new road superintendent, replaces G. N. Stowe, who'is going into the head office in New  Westminster, replacing Mr.  Jones.  Personals: Art Pilling, Ed  Turner, and Bill Farham are  off for a ten-day hunting trip to  the Cariboo. Clay Chamberlain is  holding down the fort, I mean  road, until they return.  Notice Mrs.'�� King, up and  around again, very good to see,  as she has had quite a long  seige at home. .  Take a look at Alberta's left  hand folks, when you drop into  the cafe. Not till next year  though. Lucky man is Mr. Stager,  from the interior,, Oliver I think.  Congratulations chum.  Mr. Brown from Dawson  Creek is our new bank teller. No  doubt Gibsons will be quite a  change to him.. We say welcome  and hope he likes our village.  Hear Joe and Mrs. Fitchett  are back in our midst after' a  year in Merry Old England. When  he gets settled down I hope to  have a few interesting remarks  to give you. Welcome home Joe,  we've missed you both.  Leo Nestman was home for a  couple of days, from Namu. Off  again  though  to   Imperial.  Herby Winn was down for  weekend. Daisy and Frank were  also up for dance. Frank looking  very well, sea life must be agreeing with him.  Couple of weeks ago, our correspondent from Wilson Creek,  made a few comments re the  Ambulance service. Querying  our nurse here,, shd advised us  she was not the nurse in question who complained about inconvenience of this vehicle.  Now maybe our Wilson Creek  reporter does not realize that  (one) it is quite a problem getting that vehicle in the first  place, and secondly, it would  take quite a deal of financing  to have both a hearse, and an  ambulance in this district, and  that our ambulance man is doing yeoman-service as it is. He  is out at any hour of the day or  night; and I'm certainly sure,  that anyone who is ill enough to  need the ambulance, cares little  or none, what the carriage is as  long as they reach,their destination. I'm sure the criticism Was  not* seriously meant, and I know  when everything /is taken into  consideration, then they will see  all this differently. There are  many things we need in this area,  goodness knows, let's be a booster, not a knocker. Heard also  that we will be losing one of our  doctors,  and  maybe two, unless  we can get a hospital here. This  is something that is a dire necessity, and a project that we  should plug for one and all.  Jack Inglis, 'will be moving his  family to Horseshoe bay in a  very short time. Jack has purchased a home at the Bay, moving over there lock, stock and  barrel. Sure sorry to see Jack  go, and will certainly miss them.  Harry Winn looks quite at  home pushing his grandson  around in that buggy, almost like  old times, eh Harry?  Well by the look of the ring  around the moon tonight, looks  like our beautiful Indian Summer weather is due for a break.  It's been really grand, and sure  hate to see it go, those sharp  crispy mornings, and beautiful  moonlight nights. Makes one  glad to be alive^ Leaves are  turning such beautiful colors,  and the evenings before the sun  goes down, did you ever see  such beautiful colors over the  mountains with the sun shining  over them, real life paintings.  We have much to be thankful  for. When you look out, look up,  it's really worthwhile, after all.  All countries are beneficiaries  of the Rockefeller Foundation.  The. dark color of. good rum is  due to its being stored in sherry  casks.  Columbus'   son     brought    the  first settlers to Jamaica in, 1509.  r  Compare Our Prices!
