Wednesday, when  guest speaker was Doctor R.  W. Frank, DDS.  The doctor, who has recently  arrived to take over dental work  for the schools, showed slides of  a trip he made with the supply  ship Nascopi into the Arctic  circle.  Many of the films dealt with  the Eskimo way of life, their  methods and modes. By means of  a running commentary, the .doctor drew a graphic picture of  the hardships endured by our  . northern  neighbors.  Kinsmen and their wives  learned why the Nascopi - 'made ���  .the annual trip1- into "the ice' floes  to supply every conceivable  want of the Hudson Bay Company, the RCMP ' and natives  alike.  "These people undergo unbelievable hardships," Dr Frank reported. He claimed the Government was spoiling the Eskimo  and cited cases where actual  harm has been done by dictatorial Ottawa methods. "They'  should leave the handling of the  Eskimos to the Hudson Bay  Company," he said. "Through  the years the company has learned how to handle them for their  own good (the  Eskimos).  "These people will smoke everything,'.' he said. "They love  tobacco in any form," he claimed.  The Eskimo is a very smart  man. He is somewhat of a mechanical genius. He can make  motors run that absolutely baf-  . fie the white man. They never  wash, yet they are   never dirty.  Many  of the pictures  showed  life  within  the  igloo  and   sum-  .  Vmer tents of  the natives.  Cooking methods  also were displayed.  tending school ��� outside those  , estimates for the construction,  amounted to nearly $9000 for the  digging of wells and installation  oi pumps.  > It has  been roughly estimated  /that Mr Cluse's method, thought  ' of for the. School Board by Trustee Norman Hough, will mean a  saving of   more than  $8000.  Sorcery May  Save School  GIBSONS ��� Aided by spiritual,  voodoo mystery and a little  foresight, it -may be possible for  the School Board to save more  than $8000 in one move.  - Following orders received  frd'm the" "* Board, Mrs Anne  Burns, school secretary, accompanied by Edward Cluse, Sechelt, "divined" the Roberts?  Creek school site in an effort to  find water at a level which  would  allow  siphoning. X .X  Mr Cluse, "I've divined 20  wells since I came here and  never had a dud," by means of  the forked stick, found much  evidence of strong supplies of  water. The water will be easy to  siphon into the school, according to the diviner. "There -\yill  certainly be more than you need  and only about 21 feet down."  Estimates     from Pumps     and  Power in Vancouver in relation j  to  the water installation for thej  No More Cvuessin  A FEW MONTHS ago we were told, and we believed that  schools oh the Peninsula would cost approximately  $500,000.The Peninsula and the Howe Sound Islands pulled  in their collective belts and said, "let's get on with it.'^They  figured it would cost so much in increased taxes, and submitted  to the boost.  "It never struck anyone that around $500,000,would never  be enough by probably many thousands of dollars.  Nelson Island and Egmont schools were estimated by the  firm that was finally given the contract. The firm was the only  one dealing with that type of construction, therefore the Board  and the architect had to ask first, then estimate, then call for  tenders which came from the same firm. Naturally, estimated  costs and the final figure were exact.  But such will certainly not be so with our remaining schools.  When discussing the broad difference between the estimates given, just a few short weeks ago, with Architect Mr  Harold Cullerne we asked why there should be such a spread  in the estimated price and the actual price presented by contractors. The latter prices, after all, are the prices upon wftich  we will have to build our schools.  Mr Cullerne pointed out that costs had increased since  first he had estimated. We agree.  What we do not agree with is that costs have risen ds  highly as would force the contractor to bid $50,000 on a school,  just a few short weeks ago estimated by Mr Cullerne and by  the Department of Education at approximately $37,000.  Something is radically wrong and we doubt if it is with  contractors who place their bids with an eye to other competitors who are also busy figuring out their lowest bid.  rWe believe the Department of Education has on its, staff  a member or rhem^^  probably an architect or engineer.  We would suggest this part of the Department is not very  well up with costs today. We would also suggest, after watching  many estimates and actual bids, that the department could do  with a good shakeup or at least hire someone who has been out  in the world during the last two years.  We would point out that thousands of taxpayers rely on  the Department to guide and judge buildirtg costs. We would  suggest the ratepayers will see feet of clay on many idols in  ���> Victoria. Probably the largest feet and the oldest clay can be  found in the engineer's department of the Department of  Education.  We cannot see where Mr Cullern and his firm look any  too bright on this deal either.  We believe Mr Cullerne works on a fee of six percent of  the cost of construction. There is nothing in this arrangement  that would even remotely cause the architect to worry too much  about estimates.  And on his original bid rests the belief of taxpayers. On  his estimate is the bylaw passed. It is quite conceivable, if the  architect put forward a total cost estimate of $600,000 in this  particular instance, the bylaw would have failed.  Albeit non passage would have been bad for the area, it  stands that that thought has nothing to do with the suggestion  that architects are getting away with some very sloppy, careless estimating. And the Department of Education is either too  lazy  or   incompetent to   know   that   these   wild   architectural  (Continued on Page 8)  Guide Fall Fair Has  Many Young Entrants  SECHELT���Following is a list of   winners   from   the    School  Children's  Fall   Fair sponsored    by   the    Second    Sechelt  Guide Company, held October 14.

NESTMAN  i__s___H___i__u-3-_--i_-8n-_i__s______n_E��_________n  MR AND MRS George Hill, and  small daughter are back from  their trip to Golden. Seems  "Pocohontas" behaved very well,  and back on the job once again.  Mary Drew back from Oyama,  where she spent a very fine two  weeks' holiday. Ernie still up  there.  William Skellett Sr, our Road  Commissioner, home, and he reports he is home for good. Looking very well, and* making a remarkable recovery. Mr and Mrs  Bob Murray back from their vacation.  Well the "Kum-A-Gen" Cafe  has changed hands, the Clark  family will be leaving, us for a  home in New Westminster, as  soon as everything cleaned up  here. We welcome the new owner, and trust she will like our  Village, and be as successful  here as her predecessor.  . Mrs Marge Leslie away for a  holiday. Took a flying trip to  Pender Hospital yesterday, and  visited with Mrs Frank Wheeler,  very impatiently "Lady in Waiting", but looking very well with  it all. They tell me they had a  very fine turnout at the P-TA  meeting in Gibsons last week.  Mrs Chloe Day prepared papers  for discussion on "Child Psychology", for children from one  to six years of age. The response  and discussion on this subject  was overwhelming. The discussion will be continued at another meeting.  For  my  part   I   don't   believe  ther,f   is   a  book    written     that  would   suit  every family.   There  may be three or four children in  the   family,  their  characteristics  are  so   different,  how   can   you  apply  the  book to one  and  all.  It is rather  amusing to me, that  a great  majority of these "brilliant lights", without a chick, or  a child, profess to know so much  about   child   life.   They  set   out  with their   "BA's and MA's and  DD's",   etc,   and    feel   they   are  qualified to settle the affairs of  the  world.     Give   these   people  some children of their own, and  nine times out of ten, it's a very  different story. It's very easy for  them to advise little  Mrs Ucilus,  on the raising of her Johnny and  Mary,    when   she   spends   about  half  an hour there, but for  the  little  woman, who  has them  24  hours   of the  day,   and   all  day,  every  day,   it's   certainly a   different story. After about an hour  or  so  with   the   book,   that's   it,  she's had it, and  then her   own  psychology comes to the fore, in  the shape of some corporal punishment.     The   trouble   with    a  number of people is they expect  miracles   to   be  worked   in   the  school room, for that hour or so,  and fall down  on the job when  the  hopefuls  come   home.  It's a  24-hour-a-day job     with     them,  you can't  let  up  for  a  minute,  even   though   one   gets    mighty  tired  of don't  do   this,  don't  do  that,   do  this, do that, but after  about ten or 15 years of it, you  do get some  results. Is it worth  it.  I'll say it is,   I know.  Bob Burns, village clerk, is  away to California on a flying  trip, due back Sunday. Mrs Dot  Tesky will be leaving for Powell  River to join her husband who  is working there.  Attended "Ladies' night" at  the Kinsmen's the other evening,  as an invited guest, and had a  wonderful evening. Dr R. W.  Frank, the new school dentist,  was there, and gave a very interesting little lecture with some  colored slides, on his trip to the  northern parts of Canada, in the  ship' "Nascopie". Explaining the  habits and customs of the Eskimo, some of the hardships they  undergo in these northern posts.  Certainly a very interesting lecture, and time all too short to  hear it all. It would certainly  make a very interesting evening  lecture for anyone who wished  to hear it, and I'm sure a great  many would, if the good Doctor  ever has that much time on his  hands. This column seems to  jump from here to breakfast,  but ..as I don't seem to get them  written down, and pick 'em up  as I go along, hence this hodge l  podge. As the Boss man "Sez",  he never knows what he's going  to get when the copy ^atrivej;  but it does arrive, believe it or  nqk ,��&d if you don't get to read  ifjvl- a'tn not to blame.  "' I"fieafr'the first printing came  Census Year Comliag  SINCE  next  year will end in a "1", that means  the government will undertake ,its decadel  task of counting Canadian noses. This has been  going on every ten years since 1871 and the last  census-taking was in 1941.  The published results of the regular census  are important to every community in establishing  the population of its trading area. For most  centres, the results are clean-cut and informative.  Unfortunately, not so for this district.  In the last publication of the census, the listings by electoral .districts show separately only  municipalities and villages and the rest of the  Vancouver North is all lumped in together as  "Unorganized".  The electoral district of Vancouver North  covers a large area along the coast and up the  Fraser Valley so the total of the population living in unorganized areas of the district is a figure which means absolutely nothing to anybody.  .Since the last census, amalgamation of District Lots 685 and 686 will have been completed  with the Village of Gibsons. We would suggest  that there is little to stop a breakdown of Vancouver North to show at least  the enlarged vil-  V  lage and, or -the: Sechelt Peninsula.  We have[ a trading area between Hopkins  and Pender Harbour that means nothing unless  properly defined; ..-���  Now is: the tim^XgyPIdeal interested organizations to make, ^necessary representations to the  Minister of Trade and Commerce in Ottawa  through James Sinclair to have at least the Peninsula grouped and preferably the new Village  of Gibsons and then the Peninsula. It would.  hardly be expedient to attempt having Sechelt  defined from Halfmoon Bay and Roberts Creek  from Wilson Creek. But the overall picture  would be of far greater effect than what we now  have.  More than six thousand people are here in  a close area, bound as on an island and with no  knowledge of their own size, strength, or dimensions.  The matter of two groupings here is not one  which would entail any additional expense in  preparing the census results.  With the next release of figures we hope to  see the new Gibsons listed, also the remainder  of Sechelt Peninsula. It can be done if we get  behind the suggestion to  have it done. .  co^F&coSfiR-*  By Shirley Pinchin, B.H.E.  HALLOWEEN  HILARITIES  Halloween is almost here again  and the time has come to prepare "goodies" for children, both  old and young. .  The mystic rites performed on  Halloween are age old, many of  them originating among the  Druids centuries before the  Christian era. Many of these customs were brought to North America by the people of* the European countries, and have been  observed   right   down   to   today.  off the new presses yesterday,  and our Bill. is walking on air,  it was regrettable that Sam was  not here to be in on it, for he  worked so hard at getting it set  up. But he is doing fine and  they tell me he is sitting up and  eating, which is a good sign in  anyone's language. Let's hope  he's out of the trenches by  Christmas and back with us  again. Don't forget the Kinsmen's dance, a mesquerade in  the School Hall, Oct 27, coma  and have   a good time.  Well folks this is it. for today,  it's raining cats and dogs,' and  a real dreary day, but the sun's  still behind the clouds, so cheer  up. ahd keep looking up.  These rites and superstitions  make Halloween one of the most  ideal times to have a party.  It is one of the simplest, and  least expensive parties to have,  and provides fun for youngsters  and   grown-ups  alike.   ���  Decorations are traditional,  too, pumpkins, witches on  broomsticks, bats, black cats,  hobgoblins and the like.  Favors and party hats should  carry out the orange and black  color scheme. Shiny-cheeked apples and luscious grapes, or the  Jack-O-Lantern make effective  centerpieces. ^   y  GAMES TO  PLAY ' / rc  f  Spirit Messages  Write fortunes in lemon juice  on white cards. Keep the personalities of your guests in mind  when you make up the fortunes.  Guests hold the cards over lighted candles, and the "spirit messages"   appear.  Ducking for Apples  Ducking for apples is always  a popular Halloween sport. An  old custom is for a girl to pare  an apple, the paring in one piece,  swing it around her head three  times, and drop it over her left  shoulder; it should fall in the  initial, of her lover.  Magic Daris  Cover a regulation dart board  with cork paper.

Thanksgiving is over once  again. Apart from special services in the churches on Sunday, and a minor cloudburst on  Monday, nothing of any particular importance seems to have  occurred.  Visitors to the Creek for the  holiday included Mrs M. Eldred  of Vancouver, sister-in-law to  Jack Eldred senior and Mr F. W.

Chairman Harry Woods conducted the..  meeting  and the   guest  speaker/  was   Mr   H.  H.  Howay,   Provin-';  cial assessor of Taxes, who fully.  explained   the system by which  his    department    arrives   at its  basis   of   taxation.  He  spoke   of  the   wonderful  strides   that   Sechelt  has  made with  the  many  buildings    going  up    every   day  and   especially   with    regard  to  the New Village Centre with the  cafe, hardware store, bakery and  drug store. He deplored the fact  however that we are very much  behind   other   small    communities in our lighting. The volunteer  fire   department came   in  for  a  word of praise. A committee will  be  formed to  contact the water  board   in  Victoria   for   information from their   chairman as  to  how  to   incorporate.   The   name  of the association will be changed   to Sechelt Ratepayers' Asso- ;  ciation   and   the  executive   was /  .  empowered to draw up the by- v  laws and apply  for the charter.  Subject   of  Port   Mellon     plant  closing    as    how   it   affects   our  taxes was fully explained and it  was  hoped that   thi�� plant will  soon again be operating so as to  help with   the   burden  of taxes  and to bring prosperity into this  area.   The  new  association   will v  meet   again  shortly when   there  will  be  the  annual   election   of  officers. We  thought it was  rather a pity that so few attended  as we were infornied that eighty  five   cards   were   mailed.   There  were notices in The Coast News  too.   It  was  a  wonderful night,  so    there    is   no   excuse.   When  speakers such as Mr Howay will  come to our meetings it ds scant  courtesy  that  the   hall is  practically empty.  At the home of Mrs Frank  Postlewaithe a very pretty shower was held in honor of Gwen  Berry soon to be married here.  Mrs W. Uttley and Mrs Postlewaithe were hostesses assisted  by Mrs George Taylor and Mrs  Fred Gibbons. A very beautiful  cake, donated and iced by Mrs  Alec Grey, was the centre motif. Amongst those present were  Mrs M. Lawson, Mrs L. McFarlane, Mrs A. McCrea, Mrs F. Gibbons, Mrs G. Gibson, Mrs Geo.  Taylor, Mrs A. Wilson, Mrs W.  Elliott, Mrs E. E. . Redman, Mrs  M.

Froom, little Katherine Berry and little Nina Callwell and  the guest of honor, Gwen, who  received many beautiful and  useful gifts seated under an arch  of traditional pink and white  with a cluster of seven bells.  She was presented with a corsage   of    white  roses   and   pink  daisies   the   same   colors     being  .carried out for table decorations  with fronds of trailing  ivy.

This  is a chance for everyone to get  together and have a little chat,  swap yarns, do sewing and share  in the tea. Last week it was  supplied by Mrs Sid McKay and  Mrs George Colson and they are  very good cooks, at least as far  as tea making is concerned.  We would like to remind some  of ourselves of the thrill we had  when junior first came home  with the little red reader and  read a few words to us. The  same is happening right now all  over the country but we feel  sure none faster than our own  under the tutelage of Mrs B.  Lang. She also teaches a very  nice prayer to her charges. We  believe they are under good  care with Mrs Lang.  First prize in our raffle is a  travelling twin set. That means  a lovely pair of bags (they have  no legs). Tickets are on sale at  Selma Park Store. .  We hope the Sunday United  Church'services are continued  by Mr Bevan.  Newcomers to Selma are Mrs  and Mr Chuck Blanchard and  son Dell. We hope they will like  it here.  A happy little group gathered  at the home of Ann and Heather Lang to celebrate their  joint birthday party recently.  Ann was seven and Heather  three. They each had a cake, of  course. Complete with all the  trimming, they were decorated  and held the usual number of  candles.  Games were played and prizes  won by Barbara Gibson, Dianna  McColl and Linda Walker. There  was fun and goodies for all present. Joan and Linda Walker,  Marion Willows, Suzan and Roy  Wigard, Barbara and Susan Gibson, Jean and Judy Lawrence,  Dianna McColl and Caroline  Watts, were among those present.

Canada  Savings Bonds pay 2% Per cent interest every year, and they  are always worth their full face value.  There is no simpler investment, and a temporary shortage  of cash need not stop you buying a bond. Just decide how much  you can afford over the coming twelve months, up to a maximum of $1,000. Then pay a call on Tom Larson, manager of  the Bank of Montreal at Gibsons and Sechelt. He will be  pleased to arrange the purchase of your ..bond on the bank's  monthly instalment plan.  Here is how it works: you make-a deposit of five per cent  as a down payment. That's $2.50 for a $50 bond'���$5 for a  $100 bond. You pay the balance in easy monthly instalments  over a year. It's a prize plan for steady saving.  The.B of M also has full facilities for keeping your bonds  safe, clipping the coupons and crediting your account with the  interest. And, should you ever find yourself in need of cash for  an emergency or sudden opportunity, remember there is no  need to sell your bonds. With them, you can readily obtain a  low-cost B of M personal loan.  Now is the time to buy your Canada Savings Bond.  Guaranteed by the good name of this country, there is no  sounder investment. advt.  C. G. BALLENTINE - PHOTOGRAPHY  BAL'S BLK. GIBSONS  Member���Professional   Photographers  Ass'n of   B.C.

Guests were too numerous  to mention and gifts were very  wonderful, the centre motif was*  a cake decorated with tiny parasols. Captain Andy Johnson  was master of ceremonies and  the evening was spent in dancing, square dancing being very  popular, called by Bob Kean  who is outstanding at this sort  of thing.  Gifts were very wonderful  and the young couple were very  much surprised when they walked in the hall to be met with a  grand march. Organized by a  few Sechelt ladies, this, the first  of its kind, was voted an outstanding success and the men  will stay home, after this.  Just met a very charming lady  visiting here from San Francisco and staying with her friends  Miss Ella and Miss Bessie Jamison.

Kerry Eldred, son of Mr and  Mrs Jack Eldred junior, held a  birthday party at the home of  his' grandparents.  Brenda Soukovyoff celebrated  her first anniversary at the home  of her grandparents, Mr and Mrs  Pete Edmunds. Among the  guests were Mrs R. Hughes, Mrs  Naylor with Edna and Jimmy.

The sympathy of all Roberts  Creek residents will go out to  Mrs Cooper on the sudden  death of her son Marvin. In a  small community like this,  neighbours troubles are almost  like our own, and the people of  Roberts Creek were greatly  shocked by the tragedy.

K. Berry became the bride of Mr Arthur Asselstine,  son of Mr and Mrs A. Asselstine of Vancouver.  To speak her, vows  the bride        chose   a   gown   of   white     satin  covered      with   rayon   net   with  seed pearls  accenting the shoulders   and   neck   line.    Her   long  train   was   a   heirloom   formerly  worn by the bridegroom's mother.   She   wore a sweetheart halo  of white satin and carried a bouquet of red roses and white hyacinths.     Her   sister   Betty   as   a  bridesmaid   wore   an  Alice Blue  Gown of heavy brocade with net  over skirt, wearing Queen Anne  headdress    and    carried    yellow  chrysanthemums.    Miss     Shirley  Asselstine,     also    a    bridesmaid,  chose   pale   blue     taffeta    with  Queen Anne  headdress and carried     yellow     chrysanthemums,  preceeded down the aisle by tiny  flower girls Catherine Berry and  Nini  Callwell   in   colonial   dresses  of  charm   pink  taffeta  with  overskirts    of   rayon   net.

GIBSONS Amalgamation   of  District Lots G85 and 688 may  be in time for ihe election jof  municipal officers according (to  Robert  Macnicol. \  Speaking to a non quorum  meeting of the Gibsons and District Ratepayers, President Mas-  nicoll suggested that amalgamation   could be   speeded up.  He was charged by members  present to contact Victoria in an  effort to  hasten  the  joining.  It will be pointed out to Victoria that amalgamation would,  broaden the choice of representatives.  Review of the voters' list will  be made by the village on November 15 when additions may  be added, said Mr  MacnicolL  MORE ABOUT ... .  NO MORE GUESSING  (Continued from  Page  1)  guesses are just that���and  the  people,  those   long  suffering  individuals are again being made fools.  As was recently pointed out, there could quite easily be a  point in law on this. Judging by the Roberts Creek estimate,  smothered because of a change in plans, and judging by what  has gone before in the province, a good clear cut law case  might well clear some of the cobwebs from some official eyes.  This is just the Peninsula where such a move would quite  easily happen.  We would hasten to add that the School Board has little  to do with the conditions that exist. Regulations do not call for  an architect or builder or engineer to be on the Board.  Another way to avoid sloppy kicking around of figures  which are actually our dollars and cents, is for architects to be  paid a lot less than they are now demanding, and they be paid  on either their own estimate, or the contractor's bid���whichever  is the lesser.  We guarantee this would bring forward a spate of better  estimates. And, if the architects did decide to band against  this idea we suggest they read recent news about glass factories  and baking firms. That is, provided they were foolish enough  to consider tramping on the goose that lays the golden eggs���  you.  And, in final summing up. We realize the costs of construction have gone up but we cannot find where they were  boosted some 20 or 30 percent within.the last few weeks.  Our schools are going to cost us a lot more than $500,000  and you Sechelt Peninsula and Howe Sound Islands taxpayers  will foot the bill.  Dental Service  PENDER HARBOUR  Dr. A. M.
