We feel sure that the change  of location is to the advantage  of all concerned.  Isn't the new road through  Gibsons just wonderful? It must  be a delight to all car drivers  as well as to pedestrians, but  how we wish it could have been  continued on through Granthams Landing. Is it at all possible to have that road oiled or  treated in some way to lay the  dust? There is so much heavy  traffic on it nowadays it is  misery to walk to Gibsons on  dry days. The heavy trucks tear  up the road and scatter gravel  and clouds of dust which almost  chokes   the   pedestrians.  We have been wondering if  it would be possible to have a  bus service through here and on  to Hopkins Landing especially  on Sundays so that many of the  residents of these districts who  would like to attend the church  services and find the distance  too far to walk, could be accommodated at that time. I am sure  that such service to the public  would be much appreciated.  Would it be allowable to use  one of the school buses for this  purpose?  The regular monthly meeting  of the Harmony Group of the  WA  of Gibsons Memorial Unit  ess.  By  Glenwood  Help tlie Kfaisineii Help ��itr Chiltirem  THE RFSIDENTS of the area from Hopkins  Landing right up to Pender Harbour should  be very grateful that there is a Kinsmen Club  in operation in the district. One of the projects  of this fine organization is a Hallowe'en party  for children in each district. In co-operation  with the residents and the business people of  the districts, the Kinsmen Club are organizing  Hallowe'en parties that will fill two purposes;  first it will give the children a real Hallowe'en  party, and second it will keep the children off  the streets and consequently out of any severe  mischief.  The parties will be financed by the sale of  Kinsmen Shell-out tickets by children in each  district. Prizes will be awarded to the children  selling the most tickets. On Hallowe'en night  instead of giving children apples, candies and  nuts when they call, householders will present  them with "Shell-out" tickets. These tickets  will be turned in to the Kinsmen. party and  prizes will be awarded to the children collecting the most tickets.  This is a new idea for this district but its  success in other districts throughout Canada  where it has been instituted indicates that  it will prove very successful in this area too.  Householders are urged to buy as many  tickets as they would normally spend on treats  for the children, this money will finance the  Kinsmen parties for the children, so the more  tickets sold the better party the children will  have.  This is your chance to "Help the Kinsmen, help our children."  Congratulations and Bouquets to Public Works Dept.  THE DEPARTMENT of Public Works has  earned the respect of the people of Sechelt  and Gibsons for the competent way they organized the recent road work in those districts  and for the fine job they made of the roads.  It is rather remarkable that all the widening and surfacing of the roads could be accomplished with so little inconvenience to traffic  and a minimum  of mess.  Another   bouquet   should   be   directed   to  the department for the new sensible plan of  building a stretch of road to last and then  adding to it each year, rather than trying to  do a half a job over all the area and having  to repeat the work each year. The surfacing  done at Gibsons and Sechelt is planned to .  last for many years with only very little repairs needed. Each year this stretch can be *���  added- to until finally a paved highway will  stretch from Hopkins Landing right through  to Pender Harbour.  ed Church was held at the home  vacation in Victoria at present as Reader's Right  of Mrs  J.

Council  president, addressed a very interested audience. She is a magnetic speaker. At noon visitors  and local delegates alike enjoyed  an informal visit over their  lunch.  After lunch the teachers held  their meeting in the senior room,  the P-TA's in the junior. Mrs  Haslam, Roberts Creek, presided  over the P-TA gathering and  Mrs Sargent of Gibsons acted as  secretary. Many interesting subjects were discussed���dental  clinics, Pro-Rec, parent education, etc. Mr Elliot, representing  the Kinsmen Club, addressed the  meeting,  explaining their Shell-  out Campaign, asking for the cooperation of local clubs in helping them to put on a Hallo ween  party on Oct. 31 in conjunction  with similar parties in other localities the same night. (Of this,  more later.) During a talk by  Mrs McLeod in the afternoon,  among other things she urged  we send a delegate to the next  P-TA convention, and also it is  good policy for all P-TA's to start  and finish their meetings on  time.  Before closing, Mrs Haslam  proposed a vote of thanks to the  Pender Harbour P-TA for their  courtesy in providing hot tea,  coffee and cookies at the noon  hours.

There is talk of a community  hall for this particular part of  the Peninsula. Remember the  meetings we held in our endeavor to find a place where we  could gather for social evenings  without having to wait out in  the rain or cold to take the bus  to some place outside our own  community.

They will visit points  of interest in Pennsylvania and  the different states to Florida,  where they will spend some time.  .Then on through the Deep South  on to Texas and New Mexico,  and finally to Arizona, Where  they intend to spend the most  of the winter. They aire looking  forward to a very special time  visiting and seeing so much of  the country en route.  Evidently it does not necessarily take a storm to sink a  boat, at least Mr Heaglund discovered that yesterday morning,  when his boat was sunk at the  wharf. Somehow as the tide had  ebbed the boat had listed and  got caught on the wharf. When  the tide came in again the boat  was held down at an angle  which let it get filled up with  water and it finally sank. It took  two days to pump it dry enough  to get it out again.  *JUe PIONEER Power Chain Saw  The Pioneer it the answer to the great demand for a one-man power saw  which will give continuous reliable service under ell working conditions.

This is unavoidable now, as  there is no late bus Wednesday,  and if I don't get this written  tonight it's a cert I would not  get it done in time tomorrow. I  am, fortunately, kept fairly busy  these days (on chimneys and  fireplaces with Fred) but by the  time I get home at night and  get dinner going, see the animals  are fed and the goat milked, and  all the other chores���well, I've  not much time to spare!  First on the list is a report of  last Sunday's Harvest Thanksgiving service at St Aidan's, for  details of which I am indebted  ���to Mr Findlay. (Thanks a.lot for  such co-operation.)  The main service was held at  4:15 p.m. and the normally  charming little church was made  more than ever attractive by the  fruit, flowers and vegetables donated by members and friends  of the congregation. The work of  decorating the church was performed by the ladies of the  Church Auxiliary.  Traditional harvest hymns  were sung and there was an ex  ceptionally large congregation.  Outstanding in the service was  the junior choir, trained by Mrs  A. Newton and Mrs. Gordon  Reeves. The children, making  their debut, gave a delightful  rendition of "I Will Feed My  Flock."  Following are the names of the  young choristers: Bernie Cain,  Barbara and Marylin Coles, Ann  and Michael Jervis, Shirley Haven, Gail McKenzie, Doris Solnik,  Joan and Sue Wallis, Wendy  Yates and Wilson Anderson.  The fruit and vegetables were  later sent to St Mary's Hospital,  Pender Harbour.  YOUNG   EDWARD  The sympathy of everyone in  the "Creek" went out to Mr and  Mrs E. J.

He was  in pretty bad shape Saturday but  latest news is that he is making  headway, and we all wish him  a speedy recovery.

Speaking of new homes, there  are several under construction on  this side of the inlet, namely  Ben Vaughan's, Ben Griffith's,  Ken Griffith's, Charlie Phillips'  Malcolm Silvey's. I think we'll  need another school to take care  of all the small fry within the  next two or three years.  I believe our little red school-  house is housing 26 pupils this  term, and within the next three  years there are about 20 more  who will be of school age.  Mr and Mrs 3T. Vaughan and  Garry, formerly of Blind Bay,  have taken up residence here to  enable Garry to attend school.  There was lots of excitement  the other day when the "Jervis"  unloaded a donkey at the Co-op  float. Being the only one around  these parts and possibly the only  one some of us had ever seen,  it created quite a to-do. I know  the last one I saw was at Blackpool.  Mr Bob Griffith spent a few  days in Vancouver last week.  slow to make real recovery.  Mr H. Campbell���now in  Shaughnessy, also improving.  Mr J. Storey, who has been in  poor health for some time now,  is still on the sick list.  The latest I heard today was a  nasty heart attack for Mr Nesbitt  for whom the doctor had to be  summoned.  Also Noni Reeves, after having  six of her teeth extracted, had a  pretty rough spell and will be  off school for a week or so.  Let's hope this list will soon  be considerably shortened by the  speedy recovery of all.  The only *two visitors (of  whom I have knowledge) were  Miss B. Hagan of Ottawa, who  has managed.to tear herself away  from government work for a  short vacation, and her friend,  Miss J. MacLellan, one of Vancouver's blood bank technicians.  Both spent the weekend at  "Greenacres" as the guests of  Miss M. Maclntyre and Miss  Gerry Jervis.  Mr and Mrs Colin McLean are  off again, this time spending a  few days in West Vancouver  prior to flying to Edmonton,  where they are to be the guests  of Mr and Mrs Charles Stapells  for Thanksgiving.  ��he <��oa$t Metus  CLASSIFIED  ADVERTISING  3 Lines (15 words) for 35c 3 Insertions (same ad) 75c  Extra words, above 15-word mm., 2c each.

A delicious hot weather beverage is  made by combining mint, tea,  orange juice, and syrup. For this  the leaves are steeped like tea.  Mint added to new potatoes and  peas does much to improve the  flavor. This perennial herb is  propagated by runners and root  stocks, it requires a sunny position and rather heavy soil. It enjoys moisture but will do well  with only a small amount. Mint  is quite apt to become a nuisance  sending its underground roots in  all directions, so it is advisable  to plant it in a row or in some  place where deep cultivation to  cut off the roots can be fairly  frequent.

Rich once  ^worked for the Crucil Logging  ���Co. and with his wife Cis and  [son Billy was very well regard-  led by us. Cis was an active mem-  jber of the local W.A. to the Can-  [adian Legion, ana we all missed  [her when she went away. Rich  j tells us that they now live in  I Vancouver and wishes us to say  Hello to everyone for them.  Mrs Bayliss (Mattie Nickson)  has been a recent visitor to her  mother, Mrs J. J. Nickson, and  has returned to the island and  Miss Lindsay Nickson is spend-,  ing a few days in Vancouver.  Glad to hear that Betty Young-  son (Mrs Ingram) is home again  with her parents and very much  better. With lots of rest and quiet  she should soon be her old self.  Well, it's a small world.

That we were  heartsick and  Mr and Mrs Walter Deane are  back once more after a two  week holiday spent in Vancouver  and Cliilliwack, very glad to be  back but enjoyed the change inland.  We have been thinking how  nice it would be if the government would organize an inexpensive trip back to the Old  Country for the 1914-1918 war  brides even if we only stayed  three weeks, with what we could  spend, and what we could  take  Although so many places  would be new to us, still there  would be someone dear to us to  welcome us home. After all we  have done our share of pioneering, not for us were the training classes and the good fellowship of this last war. Most of us  met with resentment on the part  of the Canadians of those days  who expected, and very rightly  so, that the boys would come  back and marry the girls they  left behind them. And many of  us  landed  up  in   an   old  shack  homesick meant nothing then.  So a trip is coming to us and no  time like the present. This might  be a project well worth the attention of the Canadian Legion.  That, you will remember, is an  organization pledged to the service of veterans and their dependents. How about it? A  couple of good girls would soon  get the ball rolling.  Rev and Mrs Bushfield are  spending a week in Vancouver,  the guests of Mr and Mrs. E. N.  Bushfield.  WHY PREMIUM RATES HAVE  INCREASED...YOU SHOULD  KNOW THESE FACTS  ���   m  1. It is estimated that salaries and wages  of hospital personnel have increased  by $2,500,000 over 1948 and by  $5,000,000 over 1946.  2. On a comparative basis more hospital  personnel are being employed because  of shorter working hours.  3. The bills for supplies, equipment and  purchased services for 1949 show an  increase of $659,000 over 1948.  4. Prior to Hospital Insurance many of  the personnel in hospitals were inadequately paid!  5. Continuing increase in the cost of living  affects hospitals just as much as it does  the average home.  6. Increased use of hospital services over  and above 1948 amounted to approximately $2,000,000.  The following important information should be noted:  1. RETURN BILLING CERTIFICATE WITH FIRST PAYMENT.  2. The Billing Certificate is of no value to you until it has been validated  after at least half the premium is paid.  3. Paid up Billing Certificate becomes your Hospital Insurance Certificate  for 1950.  4. Your remittance will identify your choice of payment plan, i.e.���Annual,  Semi-Annual or six equal instalments.  5. ARREARS are shown on the stub in ink and must be paid in addition  to the premium before the certificate can be validated.  6. USE THE MAIL WHEREVER POSSIBLE.  ������PV*  7.

I. L.  HELLO Folks. Here I am again  with a few odds and ends. The  latest   reports    on   the   hunting  situation   on     Gambier     Island,  that is the south end of the Island, is that a bag of four bucks  taken.  However my    big    buck  was  around on  Thursday  evening,  and the doe and  her twin  fawns were around. Maybe, I am  wrong   in   calling   the   big  buck  mine  but  he   has  hung  around  ever since I built the cabin. He  was a spike buck then, but now  he  boasts   five  points.   He  answers to  the name    Tommy.    It  doesn't   matter   which     member  of the family goes around, Tommy just looks up for a moment,  but  a  stranger ��� and there  is  just a blur.  It was  amusing to  watch   them   this   spring.   Bert  had   not  finished     fencing    the  garden in, but I had some stuff  coming lip. The deer would go on  the garden and cast longing eyes  at my plants. But none of them  ever tried to  go over to. where  the  plants  were.   Of  course  we  fed them  during the winter. So  I   guess   they   decided   that  fair  play was to leave . my    garden  alone. I got quite a pleasant surprise  when  I  got    home    from  Shaughnessy.   My   potato     crop  was  all  dug up.   The wife tells  me that auntie (Mrs Agnes Od-  ell) dug them. Auntie is turned  82'and   couldn't  sit   still.  Every  time  the  wife   was    busy    and  couldn't   see   auntie,   she   would  look outside and there would be  auntie,      digging      spuds.      We  haven't  such a big garden,  but  we  started   using  our   own  potatoes     while     Al   Ritchey   was  here   in   June   and  I   still  have  three sacks of good spuds.  I see Mr W. S. Bradbury is  back on the job now.  Mrs ;Agnes Odell (auntie) has  left us for the winter. It is just  as well that' Mrs Bourne went to  Vancouver with mte . on Friday,  or 71. would have landed. at  Shaughnessy again.  v��TJp, friends of Mr and Mrs Geo.  Modney. It's a son, Roger Allen.  Date of arrival September 24.  Mother and  son are doing fine.  SECHELT WEST  "LANCER"  By JUDY  eld at Sechelt Inn  ^  A PLEASANT month with  lovely weather has just ended for the A. R. McLean's who  have returned to their home in  New Westminster. They were  residing in Brae-Mar cottage and  will be remembered by many old  time residents as they have been  summer visitors for several  years. Mr and Mrs N. C. Green  and small daughter spent a  weekend   with   them.  The Lanson boys are on the  move again. Dave has rejoined  the tug "Broughton Straits",  Denny expects to leave shortly  and brother Clyde hopes to . get  time from a long run on the  Australian Freight service to  visit up here for the first time.  Mr and Mrs J. Whyte and  family have now moved into  their new home near Wakefield  Creek. Lots to do yet but no  shortage of stove-wood.  A most interesting letter received recently might interest  Coast News readers as the writer Mrs Ewart Harvey will be  remembered by a few old time  residents of Gibsons as Miss Margery Jackson.  Season in South Africa being  reversed to ours, winter is  chosen for long trips to avoid the  intense  heat  in some places.  Brigadier Ewart Harvey (retired) and Mrs Harvey made the  trip by car visiting their son,  Dr Theodore Harvey who has  a practice in Bulawayo, for several days, a weekend trip was  made to Victoria Falls described  as a wonderful sight. A fairly  close view of hippo, and crocodile in a launch trip up the  Zambesi River. Bulawayo is a  town which a few years ago was  chiefly mud huts and one store  is now a very modern town.  Next section visited was Kruger  National Park about 280 miles  long and maintained very efficiently by the Government.
