I|fc recognizes  the urgency of the situation��� hut it cannot condone handing  850,000 to Jtlie present village commission without enough  strings attached to ..make sure that none of that all important  money goes down the drain. This village has wasted hundreds  and hundreds of dollars this year already.  Do we have tor-pass this huge gum because a by��aw has two  readings?  Commissioner.Macnicol suddenly sheds crocodile tears about  adding to the financial burden of  this village and  the overloaded taxpayers. He wont hack a bylaw for more than $50;000.  Thi?s same thinking will allow an expenditure of $50,000  for pipe that Will probably need repairing before the final pay-  'mentis made. :0:-yy.y":v���'><;_:, ..,?;.���., ���-.-?      ^:'-\yyyyy,;^...r^,...  We paid hundreds of dollars for advice from an engineer  who told the commission tljat the increase over and above the  wooden pC?pe would be "approximately $7,000." This was to;  install cast iron pipe with a life expectancy of 100 years.  Mr. Macnicol asks, -"is there not a- possibility that in 10 to  25 or 30 years we will require larger water {pipe."/  We suppose he means, why put in wooden pipe when it will  some day be too small?  In 20 or 30 years cast iron pipe would still be good as gold  (in the bank. Even Mr. Macnicol must know that when a ten  inch pCpe is needed and there is already a good 6 inch pipe  ; running in the right, direction; all it takes is anther four .or  five inch pipe to carry the desired capacity. Buying a four inch  pipe, 20 ^ears from now1, will still be cheaper than buying a ten  inch. :.:������.  When (the  Coast  News phoned an expert in Vancouver re  the wooden versus cast iron pipe the engineer reported he could  ; lay cast ?Iron pipe "at the ditch side for less than! it would cost'  the village for wooden pipe."  Costs ascertained by Clerk Robert Burns also bears this out.  Again we reiterate. We are not against the;(bylaw. We are  against  giving  this commission "with its record of waste,  that  much money to dabble with.  Let the Commission go on record, by resolution* that it will  install cast iron pipe instead of this farctcal, wasteful, wood  pipe and the bylaw will stand a real chance of passing.  Please, let us not hear double talk about binding the next  council. If thaf; is the worry, let |he three remai;ning commis- i  sioners ��� a-majority, even next yiear ��� go on record as being  in favor of the cast Iron pipe ;AS LONG AS IT IS WITHIN  THE $50,000 PROPOSED BYLAW, PLUS $7,000 TO BE  TAKEN FROM GENERAL REVENUE* OR SURPLUS.  When we stop to consider the pros and cons of tfyis question  there can he no reasonable argument against cast iron.  Let us make sure this time. The last bylaw was messed up.  This commission's record is one of waste. Make sure that the'  $50,000 is going to be handled properly. Not a$ the whim of-  unqualified men who would go against the engineers just to  prove they were in command.  Let the commission go (on record now, as being in favor of  the sensible, long tenni view and the bylaw will not be held up,  and Gibsons will be assured of a real water system which will  last for many, many y|ears,  Put wooden pife iu and we shall be repairing it and.planning: to renew it before we have finished paying the more than  $70,000 :':? will cost us. /  What is so wrong about insuring our very future? What is  criminal t?hcut trying, to protect ourselves now? x  Mr. Macmcol suggests this argument is a "little diversion," and should be ignored.  If this! is a clue to what the chairman of the finance eonv  mitteo thinks of $74,000 which will have to be spen�� a<rain in  another 15 or 20 years'/��t is one mdre reasbm why we must make  sure. ���.  ?\.-;���������' ������'  Ins.'st on cast iron now./Our whole future denends on it.

(L^diti  onald  Church Contributions  Boards of stewards, church wardens, treasurers and others  responsible for keeping churches solvent, have a diffecult task*,  at any time,   but   perhaps   their   difficulty is greater in good  times than in bad. ���' ,  This because "good times," in the.material sense, are times  ���when prices are rising. It ccsts more to heat a church, to pay  .the sexton, to feed and clothe the parson and his family.  Loyal  members  of  churches  too   often  have a blind  spot  when they look at   their giyings.'   Theyi may not  decrease the  .regular monthly amounts they put into duplex envelopes, but  -when they look at   the rising monthly bills for all   their other  expenses they may reasonable decide that.this is no time to be  .giving more to a church.  When times are bad, church members decide that they.can-  mot increase their church givings, because their own income ���  ���?in proportion ��� are on the downgrade.  Financial guardians of the churches may well take a lead  from the labor unioneers and endeavor to get their members to  gear their contributions to the.cost of living. If families generally, increased their contributions in ratio to the increased  -cost of1 living, most church collections would be sufficient to  cany on the good work.  If churchgoers would,  voluntarily,  agree  to contribute as'  much of their choice as they do to their union or fraternal clubs,  some of the financial problems now facing the wardens would  be a lot closer to solution.  Reader's Right  Editor, The News  Sir: ��� ;  I would appreciate space -in.  your paper to air a very controversial    subject ���  re   the  Creek, which haAre culminated  in several arrests of juveniles .  for drinking. Why do the boys  .-and girls patronize the Saturday night dances there so extensively ?    They    ignore    the  local   dances  here.   What  are  they    getting    away with  out  there, that they cannot do here  in Gibsons? Who is supplying  the    juveniles    with    all.  the  Mquor that  they  are  get ing?  IBoys and girls from 14 up, are  rander the' influence of liquor,  -weekend after weekend.  How they have escaped serious    accidents    before    now,  with drinking and driving,  is  only   through   a   kind   Providence, who has certainly looked after them. Utter disregard  for law and order is rampant  ..-.. among   the   younger   element.  Police, to them, is as low an  individual  as they   can   find.  Why?

They   are encour-  .- ageli to beat and defy the law.  ~How long can they carry on ���  until   some    tragedy    occurs ?  What are the .ministers of the  district   doing?   Are they  ab\  shutting their eyes to the appalling,  conditions   that   exist  5ba our midst?

A little more  respect for the law, and the  laws of .this country, would do  no harm. But they have to be  taught at home. Either the  dances shoud be more strictly  stipervisec[, or closed up.

A  stitch in time, saves nine!  Never leave- till tomorrow,  what you can do today! So oif  and so forth. The lilting litany  of efficiency.  I respect efficiency. I am in  awe of it, and so an observer,  I am an ardent admirer of the  virtue. But despite this devout  worship at the shrine of efficiency, there remains an unbridgeable gap in our relations. '  I understand and sympathize  with   the   reasons  for "do  it  now,"   "a   place   for    every- ;  thing   and   everything   in   its.  place."  At  times I  can even  run up mileage on the. torturous    rbad     toward-    efficient  achievment. I glow with pride  at  accomplishments    and.,   ad- .  hered-to   schedules  which   are  the   cornerstones   of  ultimate  success. Any day I expect  to  . be able to " tut-tut,' ���' and "tsk-  tsk"   with    conviction   about  yesterday's dust under so-and- .  so fs  bathtub,  or  the   Monday  wash   hanging   out   on   Mrs.  Whatsit's,   Wendesday's   line.  . I''am  convinced   that  at  last  efficiency and I have mated to  produce a continuing state of  grace.  The house shines; washing,  ironing and mending are within catching up distance; cupboards and drawers are tidy;  meals arte on time, more ol*  less. All that ��� remains is to  polish silver, wax floors, clean  'the livingroom rugs, and prepare for Xmas mentally.'  These, of course, are the  foundations from which untold heights of efficiency will  spring. These preliminary gestures toward the ultimate goal  take about two weeks in time  and exact a rather rugged toll  in ene��gy>^ spent. ^However,  neither depleted energy nor  the tendency to emit an "I've  given you the best years of my  life," atmosphere whenever  anything  on legs  shows signs  U6��t*N<&  activities would tend to cut  down on routine. Two days of  this sort of thing and I seem  to be right back at the bottom  of the ladder of efficiency.  The worst aspect of this type  of monkey-wrench is that it  lias a decidedly dampening  effect on the mental gears that  keep me striving toward perfect' efficiency. All I care  about is sitting down to enjoy  a period of relaxation preferably in utter silence. It doesn't  seem very sensible, to be cleaning something that any,minute  is going to wash away in the  rain, be blown out to sea or.  ���felled'to. the  ground.   Maybe  all three simultaneously. The  of entering the house, seems result, naturally, is that comes  too high a price to pay for the    the calm there emerges a per-  crown of efficiency. Of course,  I can't tell you what's going  on in the world, either, locally  or internationally, but there's  no dust under the bathtub, so  I figure  I'm doing well.  Unfortunately, about twb  days before basic training is  over and I begin to feel that  the next step will be some advance Yogi, the great beautiful bubble of happy expectations blows up in my face.  This time of year it's usually  the weatherman who louses up  the progress. A big fat storm  mucks up all the floors, litters  the house, with dripping boots,  coats, pants and other sundry  items of wearing .apparel; deposits books, tools and play  equipment in every unused  area ana getting wood to keep  warm, turns into a dress rehearsal of Noah's Ark. .  The stprm itself has a deteriorating I effect on efficiency.  The height of the waves has  to be cheeked at intervals. The  beach has, to be inspected to  see if- the old beachwood is  going out to sea or new - and  better stuff is coming in to  stay. Two fir trees have to be  "watched with much speculation as io whether pr not the  wind will blow them down this  time; and if it' does, will they  fall on the house?, The junior,  brigade , alternates between  fear that they will .fall on the  house; and.v?feii!r that "they^  yvPri 't. It'W^ttft really .be much;  more exciting if they did fall  on the house, providing none  fecti example of inefficiency.  All the good soul's who stayed  away during the time everything  was  under  control  and .  * y "  in  order, start to drop  in? to  view the,muddy floors, the upset rooms and the mauntainous  to-berdone washing. The larder���  will be bare, too. ; v.

Mixed Vegetables  Becoming Popular  The search for variety in the  vegetable-course is a constant  problem . for most Canadian  housewives. One solution at  hand is canned mixed vegeta-;  bles . (macedoineV a product  which has- been appearing on  grocers' shelves in increasing  quantities in recent years.  According to  the Canadia:  Division of the American Ga  Co.,   consumption    of   canne  mixed vegetables has increase  almost .10. times   since   1938  Production that year amount  ed to only 864,000 cans as com  pared    to    1950's    output'   o  '8,632,000 cans.

Increased water supply is a  must in any district with  . potential growth in the offing.  Modern plumbing presupposes  water whenever you open the  faucet. ?But in many cases hereabouts, despite full plumbing,  one goes to the tap more surprised to find water than hot,  to'get a bath or flush a toilet  being quite a chore.  You cite'an example on your  last page where a mother and  two children had "not one  drop of water coming from the  tap."   -  We must remedy this situation. Voting the- water bylaw  will certainly be a step in the  right direction. Being present  at the October 16 meetmg I  was impressed with a " few  things. ���'  Considerable   credit   is   due  Mr.  Burns,  village  clerk,  for ���  the  able manner in which  he  describe the project as -well as'  the A'ery fair way. he had alloc-,  ated costs to the different districts. ,  .���The   unusual, circumstances  of finding our village commission   entire   accord   and   the  practical report' of the enginer  dealing with the'first phase of  the   plan as well as covering  future plans, should make us  give sober thought to the time  entailed in bringing any plan  to fruition no matter how important. The increasing of our  water  supply has been wrangled over for years. Disagreements     galore    have     arisen.  Having   in  mind    how. much*  easier it is to have any public-  body somewhat   divided   than  in general agreement, I feel.it  ill behooves us to lightly find  fault.  : The engineer, in hi\ report,  definitely states that wood  pipe has sharply increased in  price over the past years, also,  ft he wood used is'generally inferior in quality from what  was used years previously.  Consequently narrowing .the  marginal difference in cost  between wood and cast iron.  * ��� The village commissioners  were not unmindful of this  fact. M appeared to me they  felt it incumbent, upon themselves to put forward a plan  for ' reasonable chance- of acceptance by the ratepayers.  ��� ]jt was not the logic or otherwise of using cast iron that  caused them to take a stand  pat position.  We should remember that as  ratepayers we. are not overly  anxious to saddle ourselves  with added expense no matter  how worthy or necessary .(the  project.  We should;?-also keep in minctv  that voting for the bylaw,  based tliough:it may be, largely  upon the use of wooden pipe,  does not preclude the use of  iron pipe, providing the difference in cost brings casts iron  plus added cost of installation  within >the realm of practicality.     .      * ''.'  I, too, Mr. Editor, would like  cast iron pipe but when I realize the unjustifiable delay  in changing; the bylaw, submitting it to Victoria and what  have'you;. And fuutlmr' realizing that no village commission  is bound to'install wood, providing cast; iron can be advantageously procured. So, I  sa^, let us by all means, vote  for *the bylaw.. . ���. |  '���'���.-���" ��� Dave Rees.'  ommissioner Bon  tors  Attorney General Gordon  Wismer has been guilty of  telling something that is hardly true, according to Commissioner Robert Macnicol.  The Commissioner became  riled   at   the   various   services  that used to be done by the  Provincial Police but are not  by the R.C.M.P. . .  "When the Attorney General says he is savingvthe province one million dollars, it is  not true," Mr. Macnicol said  at council.

SIZE  Granthams,; Landing.^  Reader s Right  Editor,' The News,  Sir: _  In order to eliminate some  of the haze and doubt that  may be created as the result  of the remarks contained in an  editorial in the Coast'News of  October 25, I-think it proper  to give my personal views  upon this maiiter of providing  a very much.'needed water  service to many people in our  Village.  Our first? aim is1 to supply a  satisfactory water service/ to  every taxpayer in Gibsons Village ait "the earliest possible  date, if the bylaw is passed on  December 15.  The next objective is to obtain value for the expenditures  to.'be made on materials and  labour, in so far as the fianl  decision on whether we will  ' use cast iron or wood pipe, on  the whole of the job or on  part of it, is one that will require to be made by next  year's Commission. The deben-  ? .tures will'be dated April 1,  1952? The total footage of pipe  required will be in the neighborhood of 18,300 feet of which  ' about 8,000 feet is of a large  size.  Some time ago when the  estimate for the job was completed there was a difference  in price of cast iron and wood.  Lately, the margin in cost has  - been reduced, and by the time  that the Commission has to  face calling for tenders for  pipe, it may be (that in so far.  as the larger pipe* is concerned,  cast iron can he-given consideration.  It is wrong to state that the  Commission is adamant in -ihe  matter of insisting upon wood  '  pipe. However, it is correct to  assume that  the ' present  at.ti-  - tude of the Commission is,  that it will not agree to place  a bylaw for more ithau $50,Q00  before'the taxpayers in December, no matter what pressure  is exercised by financial optimists, who usually leave the  people holding the bag, and  with a deficit.  If there is a possibility of  considering cast iron pipe on  the most important part.'of the  job; and there is no reason to  suppose that ;this will not be  done, it may be that any small  balance over the $50,000 required to pay the extra cost of  cast iron pipe can be loaned  to water department, (or account) from general funds, or  surplus, if available.  Bearing in mind the warnings already issued by governmental authorities against incurring any more than neces-  . sary debts during this period  of inflation?, and realising tliait  Gibsons Village is not dependent to any considerable extent  upon revenue from employed  groups, I am mojjt strongly  opposed to?..boosting-.,.'the proposed:^ bylaw ??; b e;V?0;n d the  amount of $50,000 :;'for a 15  year period at 4V��% interest-  rate.  The Village Commission has  endeavoured to produce a  comprehensive plan that will  provide water service to every  part of the village. .We must  creep before we walk.  You talk, Mr.-Editor, about  wanting pipe that will last  100 years and not 20, 25 or 30  years. Is there not a possibility that in twenty to twenty*...  five years we will require  larger water pipe as has been  the experience of many of ��he  ���binder'districts-���  There is nothing in the bylaw itself,sto be voted upon in  December, that ties the Com-^  mission, down ho limit itself to  vood i**")1?. ���r~"^"-) ..'*�� t'^i",fi ?~*-  The Coast News 5   ^���-���-���������-���-   rives to do the job, but they  will not be permitted to borrow more than $50,000 on the  credit of the village, if the  bylaw passes.  Water is a necessity, both  from a health point of view  and progress.  Failure ito provide the money  forcw.ater extensions will create  a situation that may well lead  to the work, at least the more  urgent, part. of it} being done  out. of waterworks1 annual revenue, a condition that would  make necessary a very large  increase in the half-yearly  charges for water service.  I have all the water I want,  but I am going to vote for the  bylaw,- and I am: not going to  allow any little diversions as  introduced by the Coast News  to change my views.  Robt.

By    so   doing    he  serves   the   nation as a vital  part of our democracy. In the -  words of   the  great   Pulitzer,  'You are the eyes of the people. i*ry into the dark corners.
