"40 Years."  jeopening of  Announcemen t  WILLIAM Alexander Sutherland (he admits to the  Alexander, but keeps sundry other christian  names hidden) will take over the Coast News lock,  stock and barrel as of December 1, 1949.  The deal whereby Mr Sutherland, known generally as "Bill", acquired The News was concluded  this week and Bill is now rolling up his sleeves preparatory to cleaning up the mess, which he says we  got the paper into by attempting to produce a good  family newspaper by remote control.  We agree that Mr Sutherland said a mouthful  and it was early recognizance of his home truth  which led the publishers to consider parting with its  rather unruly offspring, and to seek a new management which could give readers and correspondents  the service their loyalty deserves.  Bill Sutherland has been around. He's been a  hard-rock man, bus driver, street car conductor and  a newspaper reporter. He was with The Vancouver  Daily "Province^ and got into the weekly newspaper  business via The North Shore Press.  Bill's longest ramble took six years when he  made the Grand Tour, England, Italy, France and  Germany, all at the expense of the government  which even provided him with a khaki uniform.  Now, with a wife and two children, Bill wants  to sink his roots. He believes the Peninsula is as  nice a spot as any. He believes that the many hundreds of people who have remained loyal to the  Coast News during its turbulent history will welcome the news that the paper is not only going to  survive, but grow with the Peninsula.  Bill, whose home is at present in North Vancouver, now intends to remove himself and family  to the Peninsula just as soon as possible.  The Publishers of the Coast News while regretting the necessity of parting with the paper  they founded four-and-one-half years ago, are confident that in selling it to Mr Sutherland their offspring will be in good hands and that he will produce a bright, newsy sheet, dedicated to community service which the people of Sechelt Peninsula  and adjacent areas rightly deserve.  i:E   OPENING  of  the   Sechelt  rharf is expected early in De-  jhber, it was reported today.  )espite the fact that there has  jumped into  San Francisco Bay  VON Auxiliary of Gibsons  And Granthams Disbands  exceptionally good weather  jing the last few weeks, con-  fiction is about eight days be-  ld schedule.

'Mum Show  Held at Gibsons  A VERY fine show of blooms rewarded visitors who turned  out for this exhibition. Although  not as many as last year, blooms  that were entered showed some  very nice work on the part of  their owners. Mr Chatt had an  exhibit of his blooms, and they  made a wonderful showing. The  exhibition was certainly not as  large as it could be, for there  were more than 85 blooms given  out in the beginning of the season, and only about 30 entered.  Winners in white blooms: Mrs  Crick, 2, Mrs Earles; 3, Mrs D.  Donaldson.  Pink: 1 and 2, Mrs Earles; yellow: 1, Mrs Corlett; 2 and 3, D. F.  Donaldson.

Refreshments were served by  the ladies. It is hoped next year  to have a bigger and better show.  All interested in this very fine  work, should contact Mr Chatt,  who will be very pleased to advise and help in any way. Mr  Chatt has been a very hard  worker in organizing this show,  and would like to see more people enter into this fine mum-  growing competition.

To   date   the   house   has   the 3DIA83S  03  VIHOXOIA Dear Editor  and Citizens,  I WISH to say how terribly disappointed we feel    over    the  outcome   of  the   School  By-law  election held last June.  I read with keen interest and  appreciation the fine letter last  week by "Mother and Taxpayer."  She expresses word for word the  feeling of every sincere parent  and friend of children,  If our Sechelt Peninsula School  Board recommends and works as  hard as it does for the said  School By-law in the interest of  the children, that should be sufficient evidence and argument  for us���every good citizen to  back them and the by-law and  to vote for good schools.  The Sechelt Peninsula School  Board is composed of highly respected and competent people  who spend countless hours of  their own time thinking and  working solely in the interest of  the school children of that area.  They also travel many weary  miles in all kinds of weather to  meet in the interest of the children and schools. They are not  paid for their efforts but work  willingly for our community and  education. Other citizens sit at  home and let this great opportunity for progress down���and  incidentally their fine school  board that works so hard for  nothing. It is shocking to anyone  who cares about children.  We are not able to live in Sechelt just now but we love the  place. We- pay taxes there and  don't find it any easier than the  next person to "make ends  meet," but we hope some miracle will happen to open the  eyes and the hearts of those  people who helped to defeat the  by-law of last June and that it  may still be carried to a successful conclusion at the earliest  possible date.  "Mother and Taxpayer" commented on the remarks of Jesus  concerning little children and  here it is complete for us to  read.  "Suffer the little children to  come unto Me, and forbid them  not, for of such is the kingdom  of God. Verily I say unto you,  ���whosoever shall not receive the  ^kingdom of God as a little child  shall not enter- therein." And He  took them in His arm, put His  hands upon them and blessed  them.  "Mrs Bill."  EDITOR, The Coast News���I am  filled with admiration and  envy to learn from press and  radio of the completion of the  Hope-Princeton Highway. This  appears to be the culmination of  89 years of planning, engineering  and construction, not to mention  a volume of political promises  that if placed end to end, or even  side by side, would be liable to  choke even the cavernous maws  of our potentates in Victoria.  It goes to prove that, despite  rumors to the contrary, our provincial government can build a  road, given unlimited time and  a free hand with the taxpayers'  pocketbook, always provided that  the goad-stick of public demand  is applied generously and incessantly. It may also help if deserving contractors want con-  _, tracts.  Which all leads to our local  problem, the PORT MELLON  ROAD. I was beginning to despair of this project, but I see  now that I was too impatient.  After all, it is only 37 years since  it was commenced and there was  nearly 10 miles to go. The road  has advanced to about the half  way mark, and we are still short  of the half time mark as established by Hope-Princeton. So  there is a fair chance that children now living may in their old  age (providing they retain their  sight and hearing) hear of the  completion of the Port Mellon  Road:  And we have an engineering  advantage over the Hope-Princeton route, where I understand  there were side canyons and valleys where an engineering party  could be lost for weeks. On the  route to Port Mellon the reasonably level land is only a mile or  two wide, so if the location engineers stray too far to one side  they will hit mountains too hard  to climb, and on the other side  will hit the salt chuck, where  the water is too deep to drive  pegs.  So  hope  once    more    springs  eternal.  Robert Burns.  By J. K. NESBITT  VICTORIA  Premier   Johnson;  Children Should Come First  ���   red-hot   issue  CONTROVERSY over the defeated school bylaw continues to rage throughout the  Peninsula. Everywhere it is the subject of discussion with talk of petitions and talk of the  new by-law which it is expected will be put  to the people at the earliest opportunity.  There are two sides with widely divergent viewpoints. The Island group, which is  considering breaking away from the mainland  school district, argues that taxes are already  high enough and that heavy expenditures on  new schools would increase the school tax  which is claimed already often exceeds the  land tax. The Island group also contends that  it would be crippling to assume greater tax  burdens in a region in which there is no substantial or steady payroll.  Education, the Islanders concede is a must,  but they stoutly maintain that the cost must  be cut to suit the cloth.  Peninsula residents are for .the most part  hostile to the Island's viewpoint. Some say,  "Let them go. If they do break away from  School District No. 47 they will have to join  with some other district on the Vancouver  side of Howe Sound and they will find that  their tax contribution will be higher than  the contribution they would be required to  make to School District No. 47."  Regrettably enough there is a tendency on  the part of both sides to permit animosities  to creep into what is undoubtedly a dynamite  laden question. We suggest that in considering  the question both sides consider the other's  point-in-view and it should be recognized that  although the Peninsula  by-law was defeated  A Dastardly Practise  DOGS  BARK;  some bite.   Dogs  can be,   and  often are, a nuisance, but it is a rare and  unfortunate mongrel indeed who does not have  someone to love it.  The person or persons who are spreading  poison indiscriminately around Gibsons, a  practise which has resulted in the deaths of  several dogs, is or are perhaps,seeking to destroy vermin and are not deliberately trying tp��.������.,<  reduce -the dog population otf-the village.  This however does not excuse the criminal  practise; thoughtlessness which inflicts grief on  others is not to be condoned and if the act is  on  a technicality  that in two Fraser Valley  districts,   school  by-laws  have been rejected.  We do not think the people bf the Fraser  Valley are indifferent to the education needs  of their children. They, we think, like any but  ���7 the most selfish people realize the urgent need  of schools but they contend and with some  justification that land has born the brunt for  too long and that another method of financing education must be found.  We suggest that the people of the Islands  and of the Peninsula concede this point and  then having done so get down to the immediate  problem, that of providing school accommodation for the children of the Peninsula and of  the Islands, an accommodation which is sorely needed.  A mother may complain bitterly at a cent  increase In the price of bread, but she would  not permit her children to go hungry because  of  it.  We find ourselves in sympathy with much  of the Islanders' arguments and with the  people of the Fraser Valley who rebelled, but  in the last analysis we believe that the needs  of the children should come first and there  is no shadow-of-doubt but that within the  area embraced by school district No. 47 the  need of the children is school accommodation.  That they should have and as quickly as it  can be provided, in the meantime, through  Parent-Teacher Associations and other organizations, pressure should be brought upon the  government to compel action in seeking a new  and more equitable method of financing education.  ,   .   .   as  low   as   they   come  deliberate, then in our opinion the perpretat-  ors are guilty of a shocking crime and we  would be happy^ to see them stand before the  magistrate and have the book thrown at them.  There are few dogs which are not the pets  of children and we wonder if the poisoners  ever pause tb think of the grief they are bring-r  ing to a child Iwhen theyi scatter. theiiXdeadlft  bait. T -    -  Humanity can sink to appallingly low levels, but a dog poisoner in our opinion, is just  about as low as they come.  and  his  cabinet    can    hardly*  wait for November 2.

Such  human nature.       _ .,  Not Like Caesar's Wife  a   suppressed  report  IT  IS NOT  necessary to  await the  outcome  of the current dog-eat-dog debate in the  House of Commons at Ottawa before making  comment on the government's action in withholding the McGregor Commission report  which charged that a combine of milling interests had fixed prices and intimidated  smaller concerns into falling in line.  The McGregor report on the alleged milling combines was filed 10 months ago. Its  subject matter seriously concerned the little  people, insomuch as it charged in effect that  we were paying too much for our bread and  other kindred products.  For 10 months that report was pigeonholed and apparently had to be forced into  the open by the resignation of the chairman  of the investigating commission who wrote it.  The Hon. C. D. Howe offers the explanation that he requested the report be withheld from parliament as much of what the  milling companies had done was traceable to  the war and to orders of the Wartime Prices  and Trade Board, given in the interests of  the state.  That may be a perfectly truthful and  adequate defense for the milling companies,  but it does not explain why the government  smothered the report until compelled to table  it in the House.  No defense, no explanation can obliterate  the fact that the government deliberately broke  its own laws and suppressed facts which the  people of Canada were entitled to know.  Prog-Con John Diefenbaker changed that  the report was suppressed because an election  was coming on. If that charge is true, it is  pitiable that men in the highest' circles of  government should be so office-hungry as to  be afraid to come to the people with- open  books  "Scandalous" is a tempered adjective with  which to describe the situation; it could be  called by an uglier name.  The man or men responsible for withholding the report from Parliament and the  public have done a disservice to. the people  whose interests they are supposed to serve;  they have shamed their party and the hundreds of thousands of supporters who paid  them the highest compliment of giving them  their trust.  One looks with longing towards the massive tower of Big Ben under whose shadow  sits the Mother of Parliaments. The men who  sit in that assembly must, "like Caesar's wife,  be beyond suspicion." How long is it to be  before we can make such a proud boast of  our own government and our own politicians?  Medical Science  Has Some if Not  All the Answers  LAST YEAR 73 Canadians died  from poliomyelitis. Medical  scientists are working vigorously and ceaselessly to find out  more about this disease. So far  polio is somewhat of a mystery.  To repeat, 73 Canadians died  last year from a disease about  which much remains to be learned.  But last year 85 Canadians  died from diphtheria, a disease  about which a great deal is  known, a disease which can be  prevented. Diphtheria toxoid is  almost  100 percent  effective.  It  is safe and easily administered.  Nor is it a procedure limited to  those in fortunate circumstances.  Toxoid immunization is provided  free of charge at public health  clinics or for a small sum from  the family physician. Yet 85 persons died last year in Canada  from diphtheria.  Last year 155 Canadian children lost their lives from whooping cough. Whooping cough, too,  is largely preventable. Whooping cough vaccination given in  infancy may greatly reduce the  number of cases and the severity of 'this most deadly of all  children's diseases. Yet 155 lives  were  lost.  Medical science admittedly  lacks many answers where diseases like polio are concerned.  But medical science has the answers for diphtheria and whoop  ing cough. Yet more lives were  lost from each of those diseases  than from polio. Tl\is shameful  situation can only be remedied  by public education.  A beautiful June moon shone  down on the parked car in which  sat Sadie and her bashful boy  friend.  "Dear, you remind me of Don  Juan, the great lover," murmured Sadie.  "Why?" he'asked hopefully.    ��  "For   one   thing,"   snapped  Sadie, "he's been dead for years  and years."

I happened to mention  that someone I knew was "as  beautiful as Cleopatra." Right  away I was reminded that Cleopatra would be "too fat and  dumpy by our standards."  Of course, the man who made  this observation is a conformist.  He accepts present-day standards as his test. For all I know  he may even admire the no-  longer-new "New Look," certainly the cruellest blow to true female beauty since the bustle and  the bone corset.  .

Under present standards we  males are presumably intended  to worship a type I have decided  to call the Late Consumptive.  The standard factory model  beauty of the day is bonily angular, possessing the hips and  shoulders of the anonymous figures on medical charts. The face  to match this malnutrition frame  is gaunt, hollow-cheeked and  with a mouth like a scar.  This woman may be seen in  profusion in 10 million magazine advertisements. The face  itself is precision-built to specifications, as finely-tooled as a  lathe and just as empty of expression. It may be seen, too,  on acres of motion picture  screens and on the calendars of  coal companies and neighborhood  butcher shops:   '"�����.-���  If I am to judge from my ciose  study of the situation there is a  veritable stampede of females,  from shop girls to society matrons, to look as nearly as possible like this master blueprint.  The result, my chickadees, is the  assembly line female, the mass  carbon copy of a look ��� and  deep gloom for any man of vision.  Now the girls behind the cafe  counters and the girls in the  banks and all the fine-looking  girls of our hamlet have worked  long hours to achieve this effect  and they have succeeded.  But, by the Lord Harry, if  Cleopatra were to show up behind a counter some morning,  every male head would be spinning and the banked violins  would start  to play.  In one of James M. Cain's exciting books two characters discuss the beauty of the tropical  sea. As they watch, the fin of  a shark slices the water. "The  water, the surf, the colors on  the shore. You think they make  the beauty of the tropical sea?"  one character says. "They do  not. It is the knowledge of what  liirks below the surface of it.  So it is with all beauty."  And so it is with the ladies.  There is no character in pancake makeup, no warmth in the  blue shadow of the eye-brow  pencil, no depth of feeling in the  tint of rouge.  Without that expression of inner things a woman's beauty is  a .vase without a rose. And .the  expression comes from living  fully and absorbing new experiences and challenges. No woman  can be said to be truly beautiful  until she is 30, for. no woman is  interesting until then. That is  when the fin of the shark may  break surface.  Certainly there are many very  pretty girls in our town and I  love 'em all. I like to look at  them just as I like to hear a  pleasant song or ogle a pleasing  water color. But I would rather  look at the wonderful mug of a  Gracie Fields than gaze upon the  vacant perfection of a Betty  Grable.

COMMISSIONER'S BLUES  A clipping cut from the Cariboo Observer, from Quesnel,  speaks volumes, and I quote:  "Village Commissioners are at  the end of their tether on the  matter of impromptu buttonhole  sessions wherein the gentlemen  are approached individually by  some ratepayer who feels he or  she has an emergent situation  ; which has to be cleared up at  " once. Besides feeling' that' siich  procedure places the individual  commissioner at an unfair disadvantage the village fathers point  out that the practice tends to  create a certain confusion. The  matter was discussed at a recent  meeting and it was then decided  that all matters should be  brought before the commissioners as a body at the regular village meetings. In the event that  a definite emergency should  arise when it would be necessary  to have an early decision from  the commissioners, this is easily  handled by notifying the village  clerk who can contact the commissioners, and arrange a special  meeting" ��� end of the item. How  true, that's the same situation  that exists in our own little village of Gibsons.  WI NOTES  November regular mee ting  was held in the Anglican Hall.  President Mrs Burritt opened the  meeting by asking members to  repeat the Ode. Twelve members  answered roll call by naming favorite radio programme. Secretary Mrs Haley reported minutes  of last meeting. A letter from  Provincial Supervisor Mrs Gum-  mow was received commending  the local unit for the year's work.  Treasurer Mrs Knight read her  report. Mrs Turner, home economic dept., would like any recipes members would care to turn  in for the WI cook book. The WI  library in the school board office is now open Tuesday and  .Saturday, hours two to four. Everyone is cordially invited to  drop in. We feel sure you'll find  some interesting reading material for yourselves and your children. Members interested in  helping the pricing committee  will meet at Mrs Haley's, Friday,  Nov. 18. The WI bazaar date was  set for Nov. 23, Wednesday, in  the School Hall. Convenors and  assistants are requested to be at  the Hall at 11 a.m., or as soon  after as possible.. Don't forget  Gals, donations for home cooking  dept. and the hanky for the tree  which most of us forgot for the  regular meeting.

Over 120,000 tons of this high'grade pulp was  exported last year to rayon mills in the United  States, Great Britain and the Orient. These  mills will convert the pulp into wood silk,  in the form of rayon filaments, yarns, plastics,  cellophane, etc. Significantly, rayon yarns are  used in two-thirds of all women's clothes made  in the United States.  Rayon pulp is highly purified cellulose manufactured from tiny fibres of suitable trees. This  process requires complex procedures and expensive machinery. About 20 million dollars is  required to build a rayon pulp mill. Such an  investment on the west coast must be backed  by a continuous supply of fine quality Hemlock  trees. The Pulp and Paper Industry in cooperation with the government of Bfitish  Columbia plans a Sustained Yield Policy for  the forest areas under its leases, thus ensuring  perpetual raw materials not only for rayon pulp,  but for the whole pulp and paper industry in  this province.

After our big blow last night it  is feared that there may be losses  in some small boats, at present  time authorities are unable to  find owners of boats, or very  much information about them.  It was one of the worst blows  outside according to one boat  man, who journeyed as far as Roberts Creek. He said there may  have been worse, but that was  bad enough as far as he was concerned. It sure did blow, and after the lovely weather we have  been having it comes as a shock  to. think it can be that bad.

A P-TA meeting was held at  the "'home of Mrs Newton/' and  despite the weather, it was well  attended. Program was discussed  and agenda prepared for the  next general meeting.  I don't think I've much else  to report. Mrs Cooper's cow got  loose and waded through about a  week's ration of meal (or whatever one feeds cows) with the result she had to nurse it for three  or four days to get it back to  normal. To compensate Mrs  Cooper for all the care the cow  cut off her milk supply for nearly a week. Now that's what I  call gratitude.  Cheers, Jack for Short.  MARY W. RENNIE  IT IS almost incredible to realize that this is the month of  November, when one sees so  many summer flowers in bloom  yet.    I don't  remember picking  sweet peas as far on in the season as this one. I can gather a  bouquet every day, nor have I  ever seen delphiniums blooming  as late as they have done this  season. The primula and violets  have been in bloom for weeks,  and the roses in the gardens are  still a joy to look at. Snapdragons and petunias vie with the  chrysanthemums. In fact the  flowers have been wonderful all  season. We certainly live in a  favored district as regards climate. Who could wish for anything better than the lovely  weather we have enjoyed these  last two or three weeks, or where  could one find greater beauty  than that which is before our  eyes every day.  Nature has been prodigal with  her rich colorings in the woods  this year. The early frost a while  ago colored the leaves before  they were ready to fall, transforming the trees with flaming  glory which are a joy to behold.  It is to be hoped that the  weatherman will continue to  smile on us for the impending  holiday on the 11th, as usually  quite   a  number    of    property-  EGMONT  By   JEAN  JEFFRIES  MRS T. DAY is home again after a short trip to Vancouver.  Phillip Paddie Jr celebrated  his second birthday on Halloween with his cousins, Linda,  Larry and Douglas Silvey. They  topped off a gay supper with a  bonfire and fireworks.  A very enjoyable bonfire was  held on the Co-op property on  Halloween night thanks to  George Page and Mrs Crowe-  Swords. About 25 grown-ups.and  children alike enjoyed the fireworks and wiener roast. Later  George played his accordian for  awhile and everyone went home  tired but happy.  Mr and Mrs J. Devaney have  their house up on land now after  towing it from Pender Harbour.  Welcome to Egmont, folks.  THE COAST NEWS, Monday, Nov. 14, 1949  holders come up for that weekend.  Mrs Bridgeman left on Sunday for an extended visit in  Vancouver. She expects to be  away until after Christmas and  New Year. Mr Bridgeman is still  a patient at Jericho Beach Hospital..  We noticed that Mr and Mrs  Grant have returned home after  being away on a short vacation.  Mr and Mrs Mullett have been  visiting in Vancouver for a few  days.  On Monday afternoon the  "Harmony Group" of the Gibsons Memorial United Church  WA held their usual monthly  meeting. They were the guests  of Mrs Bevan at the manse.  Fourteen members of the group  were present and two visitors.  Final arrangements were made  for the sale or work and tea  which is being held on November 25 under the auspices of the  joint groups of the WA. The reelection of the officers of this  last year was discussed. With the  exception of the retiring president, the officers of last term  will continue to hold office during the ensuing year. Mrs Parkinson will be the new president,  in place of Mrs Rennie.  Mr and Mrs Vaughn Moore  with their daughter Jacquelin  were weekend visitors. They  were the guests of Mr and Mrs  McAlpine.
