CONSIGNEES of freight coming into this  town will learn with some surprise that  coastal freight rate* are subject to no governmental scrutiny or approval, as are'-.rail.-'  way freight rates or deepsea freight rates.  They advance regularly at a given signal, and  all transportation companies have no difficulty in agreeing to the rate.  Increases of as much as 90% during the  past year have come into effect, and in shipments which take the cubic measurement  rate the jump has been much higher. On plaster  aggregate, for instance, freight rates have increased the ��rice per bag from 90 cents to  $1.60. A package of corn flakes carries a  freight charge of one cent, because it is bulky.  This may not be the fault of the transportation companies. Indeed, when one studies  the painstaking care with which small pieces  of freight are wheeled from all parts of a  wharf, unloaded to the floor, picked up again  and placed a few at a time on a skip, the skip  lifted by steam winch to the hold, unloaded,  and the packages stored in inconvenient ship's  quarters, and the whole wasteful process repeated over again at the unloading point, then  one is amazed that freight charges are not  totally prohibitive.  For certainly the * methods of handling  coatswise freight are as antiquated as the  ships themselves. They just do not fit into  the times when man's labor is being used with  the machine to achieve more and to.give more.  Residents   in   this   community   will   wel  come an investigation into the existing freight  rate structure and if faults are found,- some  suggestions for governmental supervision that  will prohibit the consumer paying for wasteful, inefficient practises.   .  ' Freight rates were at their- fairest here  when the Kingcome Navigation Company's  scows were operating, mainly because a scow  is a satisfactory craft for shipping and. an  economical craft to load and unload. Further  advances in loading efficiency so well demonstrated at the Powell River Company's  docks could well be applied to the scow system- to offset wage increases and maintain  freight rates at standing levels. It would be  perhaps a worthwhile line of investigation for  the Board of Trade to see if Kingcome might  not re-enter the field.  Even if. it can be shown that "existing  freight rates are justified by the expenses of the  operating companies, that is not justification  for. continuing to operate a freight-handling  system that is, to say the best, as out of date  as short skirts.  There should be some encouragement and  direction toward making a complete overhaul  of all handling methods. It should not take all  morning to unload a small cargo from, a small  ship, yet that is what goes on almost daily at  . the Westview dock.  Since the consumer must eventually pay  the shot, his investigation and protest are invited to start a correction.  Sure. There's a Santa .. .pagingDr. BrockChisholm!  IT IS JUST about time for Dr. Brock Chisholm, that pessimistic predictor of dire  world doom, to remind us as he has done for  the past two or three years that it's time we  realized there just isn't any such person as  Santa Claus.  Dr. Chisholm feels very strongly on this  issue because he stoutly maintains that.-permitting such a delicious myth to become a  reality will warp the lives of the youngsters,  and end up in an unbalanced adulthood.  The doctor has been blasting away at poor  old Santa for so long we were beginning td  believe he really had something.  But, happy day, our faith in the jolly  gentleman with the whiskers has been restored as a result of the public voices which are  asking us to believe Santa.is coming and that  if we're good we'll be looked after.  Yes sir���Santa is coming to town!  The Progressive-Conservatives have prorii-  ised  that they are  going to  reduce personal  income taxation by about two hundred million dollars if they swing into power. But  that's not all, kiddies, their Christmas stockings are bulging because they would also add  to our existing social benefits another three  hundred million.  But listen awhile longer���the Liberals  have promised just about as much, and would  actually spread around a few gifts as a token  of thevbigger things they would do���next year.  And if -you haven't heard the jingle of  the bell's on Donder and Blitzen's necks yet,  just take a peek in the CCF. sleigh.  Believe us���we're not kidding! All you  have to do is turn everything into the hands  of a government of their designing: accept  socialism, they urge, and every government  official becomes one of Santa's little helpers.  No fooling���all you have to do is wait for  the gifts to fall from the tree!  Who said there's no Santa Claus?  Paging Dr. Chisholm ... paging Dr.  Chisholm.  _.  Town Planning  OF INTEREST to every resident of the Peninsula and in particular to the homemakers iri ISechelt where the subject of incorporation r has been?J discussed, are the suggestions  on town planning by Alderman Halford Wilson, chairman of Vancouver's building, civic  planning and parks committee.     ,  "British Columbia is growing faster than  any province, and is tiny to what it will be  in 50 years.  "Council will always attempt to follow  decisions of a commission. -  "However, we are publicly responsible for  the use. of funds and there must be no chance  or risk involved. That is why the final decision is burs and commissions act only in an  advisory capacity."  ProfX Frederic Lasserre, head of the department of architecture at UBC, said-young  men  should  take   part  in  planning  as  they  ��� were imaginative; elderly commissioners were  often too cautious.  " 'Planning must be carried out with the  thought to serve the people, not merely to save.  of vital interest to the Peninsula  money. Homes now are just a place to eat and  sleep; we must make them the centre of activity.' he said."  Town planninjg is one that should be taken into consideration by every business man  and householder in the district. Father Baxter, recently moved to Nova Scotia, was one  of the prime movers in the incorporation  planning. He could see the necessity for a definite layout for our growing community.  It should not be allowed to "just grow",  like Topsy.  I  9t  ���Letters To The Editor  EDITOR, SIR���I think the Board  of Trade have a nerve to invite Mr. Carson or any of those  officials of the Works Dept. to  come and inspect our roads.  These guys must know it  would not be right for those official gentlemen to leave their  nice comfortable chair in a  warm office vacant while they  came out in bad weather to inspect bad . roads, or see people  stuck in mud holes, or see broken axles or busted springs.  No sir, they should not be disturbed,- let them enjoy their  pleasant office chat or pass time,  if common guy's like myself get  tangled up in mud holes or water  ponds in the public highway  without pontoons on our cars, if  we have not got sense enough  to pack a stump puller, cables  and a load of excavating tools  to get ourslves out as I have  done several times.

BEFORE writing this week's column I should like to make one  or two small corrections regarding the announcement in the press  also the advertisement covering  the sailing of the Motor Ferry  Seabus for Gambier Harbour on  December 4 and every alternate  Saturday thereafter.  I should like to ask the Coast  News to give every possible publicity to these corrections.  Sailing time is 8:15 p.m., not  8:45 as quoted.  The fare is 50 cents return, not  just 50 cents as quoted.  And the sailing is for the benefit of our members and friends  in the Gibsons area not Gambier  Island as stated in the advertisement.  This will give all of you plenty  of additional time at the Veterans  Memorial Hall. For any further  information see Jim Veitch at the  Sunset Hardware. He is generously looking after this for us.  (Editor's Note���Sorry F.D. that  your column was received too  late for last week's issue. However, in view of the cancellation  of the trip due to weather conditions perhaps this? will do as  well.)  On Sunday, November 28, the  P.C.M.R. Unit 276 of the Army,  Navy and Air Force Veterans in  Canada held their annual general meeting at Gambier Harbour.  The president, Capt. Francis  Drage, J.P., was in the chair. Reports were given by the president  and Secretary Adkins presented  the annual reports of the club.  Comrade Charles A. Lett, J.P.,  spoke and gave some very inter-  I esting facts and figures regarding  j the excellent financial position of  the unit and Comrade Major John  Heath mdved a motion of thanks  to the present which was passed  unanimously.  It was decided during the coming year to build an addition 20-  by-30 to the present club to be  used as a pool room and it was  further decided that the work  would be done by local labour  and all possible supplies to be  purchased from the merchants of  Gibsons.  Copies of the president's, secretary's and auditor's reports  were handed to all members  present and will be mailed immediately to all other members who  were unfortunately unable to be  present.  Comrade Major Heath was elected a life trustee and Dave Adam-  son of New Brighton also received this honor.  There was an excellent attendance in spite of the inclement  weather and members who are  absent from the area came in  , many cases a, very considerable  distance.  For example Art Galpin flew  in from Princeton to attend. That  is the spirit we like. Well done  Art. Following the meeting a  social was held with Mrs. F.  Bourne, caterer to the unit, serv-  . ing excellent refreshments.  I was extremely interested in  , .the fact that in last week's Coast  News you announced the formation of the Memorial Fund to the  little Blue Baby at Gibsons.  Like so many others, I worked  hard to help to obtain the money  for the original fund and I  should like in a small way to  congratulate Cliff Leach and  Cliff Grey for carrying on this  good  work.  They made a wonderfuf job in  the beginning and I should like  to assure them that P.C.M.R|  Unit 276 of the Army, Navy and  Air Force Veterans in Canada  will help them in every way to  carry on and extend this fund.  I have been associated with  many campaigns to obtain funds  but I am sure that was the best  run campaign that I have ever  seen. It was a great credit to the  people of Gibsons.  One more piece of news. We  have just purchased for the Veterans' Memorial Hall a splendid  new Victor recorder. So" when  you come to see us on our Saturday Night Club Night the music  will be to your taste. Just book  your ticket with Jimmy Veitch  and come on over.

PIONEER DIES  Very sorry indeed to hear of  the death of one of our earlier  pioneers, Mrs. William Greig of  Porpoise Bay, who died recently  in Vancouver.  Mr. Greig died a few years ago  and they were both well respected and well liked in this community.  Their home was for many years  at Storm Bay and Mr. Greig was  employed by by the Cloholm  Falls company, also connected  with Victor Whittall company as  caretaker. They then moved into  Sechelt and lived at Porpoise Bay.  Mrs. Greig had been in failing  health for some time. She is survived by a brother, Mr. Hopkins  and a daughter in Vancouver and  several grandchildren.  EXPRESS THANKS  A belated "thank you" is being  voiced by the Legion W.A. to the  merchants from Wilson Creek to  West Sechelt for their donations  which made the Remembrance  Day social such a success. The  ladies held their first meeting  since November 11 in the hall  on December 7, and particularly  wished to have their "thank you's"  mentioned at this time.  Urge Christmas  Parcels Sent Early  THE IMPORTANCE of expressing Christmas parcels to  points in Canada at an early  date was stressed here by George  H. Griffin, manager of the Express Traffic Association of  Canada. Traffic is expected to be  heavy this year, and early shipping  is advisable.

It is worth  it all,  for ^a^2��2t^3i��^^_i*_-<3j��m^  we are getting into the Christmas spirit and feeling- that our  next door neighbors are not  such a bad lot. The music we  keep, hearing, and the friendly  greetings, surely help you to  know it is worth while.  Getting into the musical portion of the column; we are going  to be hearing plenty of this Stan  KeHton and his "Progressive  Jazz." He is going "great^guns"  these days and has really recorded some very good listening  music.  Kenton's -"Artistry" numbers  'i.e. "Artistry. Jumps," "Artistry  in Boogie," "Ai^istry in Bolero,"  "Artistry in Rl^thm" are but a  few. "Collaboration", "Love"  and "Concerto to End All Concerto's" are hard to get on to,  but soon we will all be enjoying  them (at least Kenton hopes so).  .Stan has a singer by name of  June Christie, she has a distinctive style, of Jier own and does  excellent singing in "Curiosity"  and "His Feets Too Big for the  Bed."  When in the reminiscent mood,  be sure to hear Dick Jergens  Orchestra playing "Side by Side"  B. C.

The elementary. school, under  Mr. Elliot's guidance put on a  dancing display for the adults,  and the students performed very  nicely.  At one point in the program Mr.  Elliot invited the parents tb  dance with their children. Then  the hall became filled with excited children trying to teach  their parents all the new steps.  Despite several mix-ups the  parents seemed to enjoy the  proceedings  immensely.  On the same day Mr. Moore,,  the United Church Minister,  came up to grade 10-11 class just  as- Mr. Trueman was going to  start a hard science lesson and  suggested the pupils go upstairs  and watch the elementary boys  and girls dance.  Mr. Trueman, being a good  sport", let the class go and watch.  It seems Mr. Moore would make  a very nice school-teacher.  There was supposed to have  been a soccer game on Nov. 19  between Gibsons High School  juniors and the Sechelt Indian  School and between Gibsons elementary school team and the Sechelt United School team, but  botli games were postponed due  to the school holiday on the 19th.

Early in the morning the game  was cancelled because the team  could not get enough spectators  to go up. After some hard recruiting enough people were  finally persuaded to go and at  1:30 p.m. approximately 40 pupils clambered aboard the bus for  Sechelt.  Even though the bus was very  crowded everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.  All four "teams played extremely well. Sechelt United  clipped Gibsons Elementary 4-1,  and Sechelt Indians and Gibsons  High Juniors had a score of nil  when the time was up.

There were many of the Creek  gang  there   as  well  as  a. taxi-  load from Gibsons. Later on in  the   evening   some   of   the   kid.^  from  Sechelt   came  down.  Everyone seemed to enjoy  themselves, even the boys who  were too bashful to dance.  The floor was extremely slippery and there were several  mishaps, especially during the  Shottische, when more than one  couple fell over in <the space of  a very few minutes.  At 11:30 p.m. varied refreshments were served. Kay Norris  who is on the refreshment committee at the Gibsons Teen Town  helped  the   Roberts'  kids serve  once a week in the School Hall.
