Gatherings, slated normally  for the first Monday in every  month will now take place on  the second Tuesday of the  month, commencing October 9.  ;'hly were the  ideas emanating  from a'meeting of Black Ball  top officiary and i epresenta-  tives of : the three Peninsula  Boards of Trade and Gibsons  Village Commission, in Bal's  Hall, Thursday.  Public Relations Officer,  Bud Birse, outlined the history  behind the Olympic Peninsula  which had a growth similar to  that expected in this area.  "Cooperation and the will-  - ingness to hand on . tourists  from one unit to the other  within the Peninsula were two  of the main reasons why that  area has grown ,since 1931 with  its paltry dollar investment,  to  one  of millions.  Mr. Birse-pointed out every  trade and business was interested in. t)h.!e tourist industry.  "Tourists get sick and go to  doctors Avhile they buy through  the stores many things they  would never think, of buying  at home."  He advised that' tourist accommodation was a "must,"  in the area. And also suggested  if local people would not grasp  the opportunity then "money  will come in from outside. But  there is certainly a golden  chance for investment   here."  Mr. Birse, who has had much  to do with promoting hotels  associations and motel groups,  advised grouping interested  paries here in order to promote their own ends."  Royal Murdoch, speaking on  behalf of Pender area, hinted  that two  concerns  are   "now7  interested in building cabins  or motels in the area." He  assured that ," Pender Board  of Trade'will' get behind any  worthwhile effort to sell our  story ito the outside."  E. Pearson, Sechelt Board  of Trade .president, warned  that all Bords of Trade should  work in very close conjunction  with the Black Ball Ferry .  Company'in order to get'every  bit of cooperation and take advantage of  their experience,"  Jfflacnicol Talks tffi  Town Meeting  Robert Macnicol, member of -  the  B.C.   Command executive,  Canadian Legion, will be guest  speaker  on  Canada, to  , Town Meeting in  be held in Legion  Octo-  Hall, NeAv Westminster,  ber 4, at 8 p.m.  Speakers who will take part  in the discussion, "Should  War Veterans' Pension and  Allowance be increased now?"  will be ^Howard Green, M.P.,  Tom Goode, M.P., and E.

Mew Ticket Winner  Ticket number 13 will replace the former ticket for the  $10 door-prize of the Howe  Sound Pall Fair according to  a new drawing held in the  Parish Hall, Monday. Ticket  holder will have to claim the  prize prior to next meeting of  the unit.  erv  Sea mail   contracts will  be  resulting in all  Sechelt Peninsu  via   the   Quillayute,   according  Sinclair, M.P.  Approved Resolutions  Include Sweepstakes  SECHELT. ��� Among resolutions approved at the annual  meeting of McKenzie Riding  Liberal Association were requests for immediate construction of the Welcome Beach  cut-off and commendation of  the government for starting  hospital insurance. These were  presented by Halfmoon Bay.  Pender Harbour requested a  road be built from Madeira  Park to Murdoch's Landing,  thereby tieing in the Frances  Peninsula with the mainland.  Powell River will drive for  legal sweepstakes in B.C. to be  operated by the Government.  An enquire into the liquor ace  was also requested while condemnation of the compensation  board for the time lapse from  a man having an accident and  the stai'fof compensation-payment was also heard.

"Before leaving Ottawa, I  had an interview with the  Post-Master . General and suggested to him that as soon as  the car ferry was inaugurated,  all mail should he carried by  road for the entire Sechelt  Peninsula.  "Today (September 24) L  have received a report from  Ottawa telling me that the-  Post-Master General is acting;  on this suggestion.

"It is hoped this service will  be in effect by November 1.

River in order to properly organize and control all efforts -toward furtherance of the whole area was advocated by Captain  Alexander Peabody, president of Puget Sound Navigation Company, when he spoke to a small group of business men in Bal'st  Hall.  : ~~ In    his    talk,    ihe    Captain',  hinted the second link of the*  Black Ball Ferry (Agamemnon'  Channel) would probably be-  completed by the end. of next'  May.  Also hinted was a "new deal  in highways."  The American business manx  warned much of the kicking or��  our highways came from locaf  people.

Mr. Carson, (Minister of  Public Works), "is conscious  of your problem," he saicl.  "Get behind your MLA and  help him to further point the  . need for better roads because  .of increased tourht traffic,,r"  he advised.  remove any traffic problems  that do arise owing to the car  ferry.  Mrs. Nestman suggested it  would cost the village thousands of dollars to build retaining walls and widen the  road to accomodate two lane  traffic.  Another meetmg with the  Company, the Department of  Public Works and the Village  Commission was hinted. It is  expected, an answer will be  forthcoming  in   this   problem.

British Columbia.  ilonaid  Juvenile Alcoholism  Whenever-a juvenile appears in police court on a charge  Tinder the Liquor Act, one of the questions which must arise is;  Should the accused, if guilty, get the heaviest penalty?' Or  should it be the supplier?  Too many adults in our district scoff at the law forbidding  .alcohol to people under 21. A visit to some of our social affairs  ,on a Saturday night will offer evidence of this.  It is unfortunate that the many receive the  criticism ere-,  .ated by the acts of the few. One smart aleek juyenile can give  ��l group of ten or 20 or 30 a. bad name.  It is true that some adults unthinkingly try to do a man-  sized juvenile a "favor" by buying him a dozen beer or mickey  of rye.   It may be pointed out  that   the supplier is not far re-  , moved from a drug peddler who starts neophytes on the road.  The supplier is everi more guilty of a crime than the juvenile. If you want to kill a weed, strike at the roots, not the  branches.  Broken Confidence  There is a fairly, common impression that members of a city  -council or school board, must net speak to the press for publication on any subject until that matter has comje formally before  their boards. Last week two members of the local school board  were virtually asked to resign on this score. They had, it was  claimed, broken confidence.  The charge might be all right if it were soun/il, but there is  no authority behind the claim, the trustees had first to report to  their board before discussing the matter publicly.  Every member of the school board is elected by the ratepayers, and it is to them;, in the final analyife, that they owe  allegiance. No one member of a board has more power than another. True, one is named chairman, an essential in the conduct  of school affairs, but he has no more responsibility'placed upon  .him by the ratepayers than others. All w;ere elected to njn the  affairs of School District 68, and if they do not do so to the  isatisfaction of the ratepayers as a whole they must pay the penalty of answering for their misdeeds to the voters.  There are occasions often enough where,  by general consent and agreement of a board, no public statement on certain  matters 'Is to be made until certain conditions have been fulfilled. It might be until after the next meeting of the board, or  ���ainJtil a report has been presented to the board.  Neither the mayor nor school board chairman in any city  has a prerogative in making statements to the press,  although  quite bften^ more as a courtesy than anything else, public state-  .ments are released for publication by these two gentlemen.  f?"    3ut in the Ideal case the two trustees were not disclosing  'anything which would be affected adversely by^ publication in  the press.  And as a matter of fact, had the statements been  detrimental to the board's interests, they would not have been  ,t published.  The press is always  anxious  to get  the news first  and at the earliest possible moment, but it does not go out of  its way  to publish material which will   adversely affect  the  community it serves.  i   .-'      i ��� Nanaimo Free Press.  >���- <  urspean Tour  8 Ttirifl  T< Trying to condenee weeks  of  exciting   travel   in  several  :d.if��e'p,KBt countries into a few  H^iitfts    is    absolutely    impossible,"   says    Miss   B r e n d a  Cooper, who  recenly returned  from    an    extended    tour    of  .Europe.  IMiss Cooper sailed from  'Montreal aboard the Ascania  .and landed at Liverpool which  ���was the gateway to the whirlpool of? color, customs, music  sind"'changing scenes of the  rjext few weeks.  Tern-jug Scotland, fram the  Trossacks, clown, to Strafford-  .-on-Avon, the party visited the  cottages of Ann Hathaway  and Wordsworth on to Devon,  Cornwall, and London. The  Festival of Britain was in full  swing, but paled ��� beside the  beauties of Amsterdam,* Vienna  and Italy. They also enjoyed  the scenery of Switzerland,.  Belgium and Germany, but  Miss Cooper was most thrilled  by the ancient city of Borne,  Where they spent many happy  hours among the galleries of  ast and music.  With her companion, Miss  Cooper hitch-hiked for two  weeks through the north of  France, and then back to England. Her many experiences  will live long in her memory,  and she hopes to return someday to spend more time in  Italy  in particular.

Behtall.-  Sclerosis Society  in Need of Names  Officers of Vancouver Chapter, Multiple Sclerosis Society  of Canada report that research  into this disease is hampered  by lack of facts concerning its  occurrence and geographical  ���distribution.  The number of victims in  B.C. is not known. The only  record here is the list of MS  patient who have'written to  Vancouver Chapter.  This list shows that more  than 130 patients in Greater  Vancouver are mainly from'  ���three neighborhoods, and that  .a half dozen small towns andf  villages account for most of  the 70< eases from other parts  of British Columbia.  This, no doubt, \is due to one  patient telling others in his  neighborhood about the Society and its affort to bring help  to those afflicted with this  ailment. .  The majority of British Columbia's MS victims, it is believed, have not yet learned  of the efforts made to find the  cause and cure of this devastating disease.-  These efforts would be  speeded if each MS patient  would send his name and ad- ���  dress to the Multiple Schlero-  sis Society, . e/o Western Society for Physical Rehabilitation, 900 West 27th Avenue,  Vancouver, B.C.  A talk on the Indian situation by Dorothy Livesey Mac-  nair, nationally known poetess  and playwright, was highlight  of the annual joint meeting of  the Sechelt district P-T.A. and  teachers at the new Madeira  Park School September "22.  ' Main point of ?M?rs. Mac-  Nair's speech and of the lively  discussion which followed, was  that Canadian. citizens should  become familiar with the culture and the problems of the  Indians through study groups  and through social contacts  with the Indians themselves.  After a noon-hour . intermission, during which parents and  teachers had an opportunity  to see the up-to-date Madeira  Park school and to enjoy the  refreshments provided by the  Pender P-T.A.

This was recently announced     ~ :   by Mayor Frank Goldsworlhy,  who said he had been asked  to pick a child but he thought  the only fair way would be to  leave the matter in the hands  of the  individual schools.  "I feel that she should be  a child of about six," he said.  "It will be a distinct honor  for the little girl and for her  parent.  "According to present plans  she will present tlie Princess  with a bouquet to demonstrate  the love and loyalty of all  school children of the North  Shore." t  Mayor' Goldsworthy said he  had no idea how the girl would  be chosen for the honor.  "That is entirely the responsibility of the School  Board and the teaching staff,"  he said.  Children will have'rto find  their way to Brockton, according to information disclosed  here.  It" was originally planned to  have the , royal pair visit the  North Shore and in that way  the children would be assured  of a sight of the Prince and  Princess when they come  through.  ?Due to a change in plans  they will not come this far  and those wishing to see them  will have to make their own  arrangements.

Chlorophyll, the  green coloring matter of plants  for instance, is used extensively by manufacturers to color  food, soaps, candles and other  factory products. The earoten-  iods, the yellow content of  plant cells found in combination with chlorophyll, are a  valuable source of vitamin  A.  They didn't have a cocktail  lounge in the old days. The  boys just referred to it as the  back room.  Some harsh words, "high  handed" and "dictatorial,"  were thrown around during  Village Commission meeting  when Clerk Robert Burns took  exception to road crews invading his private property in  order to clear the waterway.  "I don't' mind the crews going onto" the land to clear the  ditch,"'the exasperated clerk  announced. "What I Object to  is the high, handed and dictatorial method of just going  onto private property without  asking permission or warning  the owner." * ��� >���  Commissioner W. Skellett',  roads commissioner was quick  to point out that no less  authority than E. S. Jones,  deputy minister of public  works, had assured him he  could go onto private land to  clear "the natural waterway,''  without permission.  Burns scored the practise as  being unmannerly and without  consideration. He claimed this  was hardly the country where  such dictatorial methods .  should be practised.  The discussion ended on a  warning note from the clerk  that there are other points on  the suggested drainage creek  course which will have to be  thrasftfed out.  The disputed creek runs  through Mr. Burns' property  in the Bay area.  There is no substitute .for  the home, despite the fact, that  many a person spends more  time in his automobile.

Veteran Pot Starts To  Boil For New Committee  Local veterans and their friends heard some plain talking  when they were guests of Legion Branch 109, under chairmanship of R. M. Inglis at a public meeting in the Legion Hall,  Sunday.  The meeting heard George  Cruickshanks, Liberal M.P.  from the Fraser Valley Air  Marshall Leigh Stevenson,  MLA, Point Gray, Francis  Drage, J.P., B. Isman and  Blair Clerk of D.V.A. speak,  on veteran's pensions, legislation past and coming, and the  attitude of the B.C. government toward veterans in general.  Mr. Cruickshank advised  Veterans and veteran organizations to get behind their members of parliament to force the  government to set up a veteran  affairs committee at the coming sitting of parliament.  "This is the only way in  which you will be able to have  your matters considered this  session,'' he said.  "I'll do, my utmost to have  the government set up a  committee, but the chances, are  slim unless you force your  members to get bhind the  move."  Mr. Cruickshank (promised  he would cross, party lines anytime on a vote ior the veterans :  and their dependents. ������" The  only |thing I won't do," he  said, "is to vote against the  government,.on a vote of confidence. After all, I would be  useless to my constituents and  veterans if I were to help overthrow the government I belong  to.'-'  The air vice marshall was  loud in his praise of General  Pearkes,. George Cruickshank  and Howard Green for their  'attitude .in veteran's legislation.  He urged equalization of  pensions "from privates ��� ���to  generals. A private \s blood was '  just (as important as a general's. Pensions should be on  .an equal footing."  It amazed B. Isman, past president B.C. Command, "how  some of': these pensioners can  live on: the small sum they  receive. He urged all veteran  organizations to wire their-v1  member on?? opening day of the  next session of parliament and  urge |setting -up a. veteran's  affairs  committee.  Captain Francis Drage. president of unit 276 Army, Navy  and Airforce Veterans, vr?ec\  further coordination of the  work nlanned by the Lee-ion  and. his parent? organization.  "Vote out any member who  will not take full recognition  and give full backing to the  veteran's needs," ' he said.  "The same applies to the  party j"  "I f all our members get  behind the drive for a veteran's affairs committee, we  can have it. We all know these  things are decided in caucus,  and if every member get behind the move, there would be  .no reason for not having our  demands considered this fall."  "Platitudes on the platform  are not enough from our members," the Gambier veteran  said. "The torch has been  handed on from our dead to  our living veteran.

By Jack Loutet  My introduction to municipal life was at the age of 24  when I ran for councillor in  the District of North Vancouver, which at that time extended from the North Arm of  Burrard Inlet to Howe Sound.  I was defeated by four votes-  The following year I ran again  and won by about the same  amount. The first meeting in  1911 was held in the home of  John Lawson  at Hollyburn.  I sat as a councillor from  1911 to 1921 inclusive and in  1913 was elected while on a  trip to Cuba, Jamaica and the  Panama Canal. On that occasion I think a had a majority  of 21.  Thursday October  4 1951     The Coast News  population. This was unpopular and I was defeated but  was elected Reeve in 1923. At  the end of that year I again  warned the ratepayers and  was promptly thrown out.  ��� ' The files' of North .Snore  Press will show the many  schemes which were heralded  as* due  for  early  completion.  ' Amongst these was the Imperial Drydock and Shipbuilding  .Company which was to "have  a large plant at Roche Point,  and a townsite designed like  a spider's,, web in District Lot  551, just above Roche Point  Another was a great shipbuilding plant in District Lot  272,   just   below the   present  almost as if it were an accomplished fact, a railroad at the  north end of District Lot 594  was slashed out and that was  the end of that scheme.  There was much talk of a  development similar to the  Bush terminals itl New York,  just east of Second Narrows,  and still more hot arguments  over a dam at this point. Many  lots were sold on the strength  of this scheme's and even today, with all the development  that has taken place, prices of  land have not reached the  amount paid for lots at that  time.  !<a  ALL ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES  Pender Harbour       ��� ���        LES WILKINSON  Sechelt ��� ��� HAREY SAWYER  WILLIAM FORTT  ��� Phone Gibsons 24-S-4 ���  Murphy   Paint - plant. ���   Much  During  those   earlier  years    cnampagn6 flowed in th.e_de-  MOVING JOBS  LOGGING EQUIFMENT  HEAVY FREIGHT  we  had high hopes for the  development of the District as  a residential area of Greater  Vancouver but land booms and  financial depressions delayed  fulfillment of our earlier visions.  On one occasion, without  notifying us, the Bank stopped  payment of our cheques, and I  believe, we were the only  municipality in Canada to  print our own money and run  the municipality on that money for over six months. The  employees of the municipality  ' agreed to accept the money,  the local merchants agreed to  take the money' without discount and the wholesalers of  Vancouver followed suit and  accepted it from the local merchants. All the money was re-  ' deemed before the end of the  year except for a few bills  which were*apparently kept as  souvenirs.  In 1912 we were the first  municipality in the province  to surface-treat roads and  Lonsdale avenue from 29th  Street to Carisbrooke was, I  believe, the first tarred.road  in Canada. In those days the  tarvia was .heated in open kettles and put on by workmen  with their feet wrapped in  sacks and using wire brushes.  This section of Lonsdale Ave.  was later occasionally treated  with an asphalt spray and has  remained to the present day  without a pothole in it. The  engineer in charge of this  work was John Cosgrave, and  the late John McCready was  superintendent.  The major task of the earlier  councils was trying to finance  a bridge over the Second Narrows and. it took many years-  of hard work beiore this was  accomplished. Those who were  residents. here   at   that   time  know   of  the   difficulties,  but  those who came later, thought  the  people  .were shortsighted  in    not    providing    a ��� better  bridge.   Had   they been here  they would have realized that  every    effort    was    made    to  finance the  high level  design  by    Wolfe-Barry,    but    with  practically no assistance being'  received.   from    the    Federal  Government, it. was found 3m-  possible  to. "proceed with  that  dp��ign. The financial difficulties of the district in the early  30's  was  almost  entirely   due  to the  failure  of. the   government  to* follow the  advice  of  Diurnld    Donaghyi-    KC,     in  ���passing ?m Act to validate, the  bridge * after  the   Government  had approved theUlesism.  In 1922 I warned the ratepayer s thev must sfop borrowing until we a had a large*  dication ceremonies but after  putting in that concrete footing the scheme collapsed.

Idea   for   the   club   sprang  from lack of youthful interest  in   local    farming,    "all    our  youth thinks of when it comes  to  leave  school  is  logging  or  fishing," and  the  "aittrocious  grade  of cattle we now have  on the Peninsula."

A letter from W. R. Robertson, deputy minister of agriculture   brought   farmers the  sad news there is no money in  the provincial treasury which  could*be used in the elimination of the evergreen blackberry.  The department pointed out  this was a prevalent thing and  that little could be done about  total  eradication.  The incensed agriculturists  will write for further information on a recent chemical  destroyer which may be practical. Little was known at the  meeting about his recent erad-  icator. More information will  be asked for.  Condemnation of present  system of taxing lands in order  to defray school costs was  heard.
