Men who make their money in  that long fight .against the woods  were glad that such a thing happened. There was fear oriXthe  Peninsula . . . fear that grew as  the humidity readings crept  more and more toward the thin  red line that marks "quit, or  else." Loggers from Williamson's  Landing to far along the inlets  of Sechelt West, were glad when  the rains came.  Halfmoon Bay is supposed to  "be a good spot for getting the  limit in deer. May I humbly suggest that, following the number  of bucks which have come from  out of that country, there can  be very few left.  / I hear tell that Cecil Chamberlin did very well for himself in  ,the venison line as vdid several  of the . local hunters. I have shot  many deer . . . for many, years  that was the meat supply during  every winter . . but I still wonder if shooting deer or any animal in the name of "sport" is  just that?  Death.is such a permanent and  irrevocable thing that it seems  very one-sided when it is remembered that most of they who  kill for sport do so for a very  fleeting sensation or momentary  thrill.  %   There is every reason for giving the nod to they who kill to  ^survive. Such  is the law of the  Swedes and the basic. But, at the  frisk  of being branded    a    tear  sprayer    of    little    import,    we  kwould whisper-a  dislike for the  [,word  "sport" in relation to kil-  iling deer.

Mayne in announcing winners of the various contests.  'Highlight of the full evening's-entertainment was Dutch  Auction which netted many dollars on various sales of home  ~ ~ cooking  in the Legion Hall.  Winners of prizes are as follows: case of silver, Loraine Mc-  KiUop, Selma Park with ticket  number 90; 2nd, John Cattanach,  ticket member 101; 3rd, Bill  Thompson, ticket number  1752.  Whist Drive winners were  Chuck Blanchard, first in the  men's, Mrs Blanchard first in  the ladies, Mrs Lee Redman won  consolation in the ladies while  Dr T. R. McColl won the gent's  consolation.

Peterson Will  Police Sechelt  SECHELT   ��� Constable  Robert  Forrester,    RCMP,    will    be  away on three    weeks'    holiday  starting immediately.  Announcing the holiday Constable Forrester reported appointment of Constable W. A.  Peterson as taking over duty for  the Sechelt area.  "Constable Peterson will be  only too glad to issue licenses  for anyone in this, area," he said.  "Anyone desiring information,  or any of the many permits necessary may get them from the  Gibsons  policeman."  S  ...in* _,,,.  GIBSONS���Belief in future growth of the community has been  displayed in a concrete  fashion  by Mrs Irene Coleridge  in  her announcement that   Irene's  Dress  Shop  will  open for  business, October 7.   Mrs Coleridge, former owner  of Kay's Kitchen, and five year  resident here, will cater to over-  sizes and handle dress designing,  repairing, alterations and feature personalized shopping.  The shopping and repairing  will be a boon to local people  who find it difficult to get into  Vancouver in order to take advantage of some unique service  which periodically crops up. "We  will handle all clothing on a par  with Vancouver, generally speaking,"   said   Mrs   Coleridge.   "The  use what they could not. We  pass this generous gesture on to  others who would be quite as  willing to donate if they knew  there was a need for apples,  pears or any fruit. The School  will send pickers who- will hot  damage your trees.  Phone   the  Indian   School    or  The Coast News, Gibsons 45.  [Teachers Told Costs  Are Wrongly Based  PENDER HARBOUR���John Sutherland, one-time B.C. Teacher's  Federation president scored  application of the- Cameron  Report when he discussed means of financing schools at the  third annual conference of teachers and parents here.  According to the Cameron Re-      : ������������ .  port, the provincial government  was expected to pay from 55 to  60 percent of education costs by  means of" grants based on the  number of teachers, Mr Sutherland said. Number of classrooms  and the number of pupils also  entered into the calculation, he  reported.  "It was the intention of Dr  Cameron the schedule should be  adjusted from time to time as  the cost of the basic educational  programme changed from time to  time. This has not been done.  Consequently, the grants now  given to school districts under  the schedule, pay only about  35 percent of the cost."

Nestman.  The store once utilized by Mrs  Clay will be the new setting  which has been completely redecorated and complete new  lighting arrangements supplied  by a local contractor.  Mrs Boyd is  Mail Mistress  NEW BRIGHTON ��� We have it  on the very best of authority  that the following ��� announcement is absolutely authentic,  despite the garbled and mixed  story of postmasters and mail  contracts that have come out  from the fair woods of this Gambier settlement.  According to information received from postal authorities,  Mrs Violet Boyd has been appointed postmistress of New  Brighton Post ��� Office.  This, we hope, will end for  some time the spate of information on post offices from this  area.  Mackay Serves     Dawn Davey  Grave Warning     Teen Mayor  IS  Started  GIBSONS and   District Ratepayers'  Association  will   open   its  winter series of monthly meetings in the  United Church  Hall, Gibsons, on Thursday evening, October 5 at 8 p.m.  With amalgamation of adjacent        districts expected at an early  date the local association is now  prepared to accept as members,  taxpayers in the areas that will  become part of the Village of  Gibsons, and an invitation is extended ^ to these people to attend  the meeting  on October 5th.  The group takes the stand that  notwithstanding the objection of  the majority of the Village Commissioners to the Provincial  Government's action in increasing Village Commissions from  three to five Commissioners,  where the population is under  2500, effective December elections, the ratepayers association  approves the setting up of the  larger Commission. Not alone in  view of the increase in the area  of Gibsons but also owing to the  fact that Gibsons Village has, on  occasions, been administered by  only two Commissioners. With  a Commission of five, this procedure could be avoided.  With an election pending in  December, where three Commissioners have to be elected, it is  hoped, said a spokesman, that  ratepayers will interest themselves in the affairs of their village, and this can be done  through association with their  local organization incorporated  in  194J5X,.  Secretary" Percy"   Lee'ch, a c/6"  Post  Office,   Gibsons,     will"    be  pleased to* receive names of prospective members, said President  Robert Macnicol.  Frightened Kids  Returned Home  ROBERTS CREEK ��� Two juveniles, missing from the area  during all one night were found  on the wharf at Gambier Harbour, cold and much wiser.  Reported missing on Sept 17,  they were picked up next day  on the island wharf, following a  trip via rowboat. The two very  young adventurers were returned to their parents by Constable  W. A. Peterson, RCMP, who delivered both children and a  small lecture on the dangers involved during such escapades.  Found Guilty on  Cruelty Charge  DANIEL Albert Rabbitt, aged  22, pleaded guilty to cruelty to  a horse in Magistrate S. McKay's  court at Gibsons, Sept 27, and  was fined $50.00 and $5.00 costs,  GAMBIER ISLAND ��� Transportation for residents of outlying areas may be assured with  announcement by owners of a  new ferry system which started  operation Friday.  William Jewitt and Pete Lab-  rie, onetime drivers of Howe  Sound ferry boats, will operate  the new service which include  calls at Gambier Harbour, New  Brighton, Sea Side Park, and  Hillside. The boat will leave  Horseshoe Bay, Sundays and  Fridays at 2:30 returning following the above mentioned calls at  5:05. The new ferry, named the  Li'l Pete will call at West Bay,  Williamson's Landing and Twin  Creeks by arrangement. Single  fares will cost $1.50 and $3 return.  Captain Francis Drage, dn announcing the new service took  the opportunity of urging all interested to patronize the new  project. "This service is being  operated solely on condition that  trade warrants it," he said. "It  may stop at any time provided  trade  drops  too low."  Transport for  Gambier Kids  GAMBIER ��� Pending settlement of the school question on  Gambier Island, a transportation  application for children to attend Gibsons School will be  made to the School Board, today.  In announcing the application,  Captain Drage, JP, pointed out.  that children on Gambier have  been promised education. "The  school has not been built yet,"  he said, "but that is hardly reason for the children having to  suffer. I certainly hope the  School Board sees fit to grant  this request.  "James Boyd has a boat which  could reasonably be deemed  suitable for the work of conveying pupils back and forth," Captain Drage said.  in default, of not paying by Oct  2, two months hard labor.  Allen Clifford Jones, SPCA  Inspector of Vancouver, laid the  charge, and on the advice of a  veterinarian, the horse was destroyed, with permission of the  owner.  Powell River Excursion  Proves  Profitable Trip  POWELL RIVER���Weekly editors and publishers were all day  guests of the Powell River Company, September 23, when  they toured the plant, Powell River and Westview.  Ending a four day convention :   ROBERTS CREEK ��� A stern  word of warning to future offenders was delivered by Magistrate Sydney McKay as he levied $5 fines against several juveniles following appearance in  Juvenile  Court.  Action was taken by authorities following reports of pilfering  taking place on the dock.  The youths, ruled the magistrate, must be home by 9 p.m.  He also gave hints of harder sentences to follow if further law-  breaking  continued.  GIBSONS���Teen Town will be  ruled by Mayor Dawn Davey  for the coming year, according to  election results just announced.  Elections were held at the  home of Betty Grant recently  when it was known that Chuck  Kane will handle duties of Police  Chief for the same period.  Plans are now under way for  commencement of Teen Town  Dances. Further information will  be distributed following a- proper  schedule drawing.  in Vancouver, the newspaper  men were shown how paper is  manufactured. Much interest was  shown in the new No. 8 machine  which produces with No. 7, 800  miles of newsprint per day. This  is enough paper to stretch from  here  to San Francisco.  The world's largest pulp and  paper producing plant was a  source of continual wonder, to  the party who deal continually  with the product but were rather  hazy on the process of manufacture.

LET'S GIVE THANKS  Ever since the first Pilgrim  fathers gathered their plentiful  harvest in the new world,  Thanksgiving Day has been celebrated as a day of family feasting.  "Turkey and Fixin's" has always been traditional, but the  rest of the menu has been pared  down to fit modern f appetites,  and present day food budgets.  Whatever your choice of menu,  start your plans for the big day  early. With an organized plan  under' way, there should be no  rush and worry at the last minute. Concentrate most of your  efforts on the turkey and keep  the rest of the menu qute simple and you will find that  Thanksgiving is as easy and happy for you as for the rest of the  family.  Here is a  suggested  menu for  your Thanksgiving feast. Turkey  may be a bit expensive  for your  budget,     but     it   is    traditional.  Chicken  may  be   served   instead  of the  turkey   if  your  family  is  small. '  Grapefruit Juice  Cocktail  Melba Toast  Roast' Turkey  Cracker-Sausage   Stuffing  Giblet Gravy      Cranberry Sauce  Glazed   Sweet   Potatoes  Brussel Sprouts with Mushrooms  Creamed Onions  Pumpkin Chiffon Pie with  Whipped  Cream  Nuts Coffee  ROAST TURKEY  Here are just a few hints on  what to do with the animal after  you get it home from the butcher.  Remove pin feathers with  tweezers and singe if necessary.  Remove any bits of lungs, kidneys, etc remaining in the cavity. Wash the outside well, rubbing with a cloth or soft brush.  Rinse cavity with cold water.-  Drain thoroughly. Rub cavity  with salt, allowing about Vi teaspoon per pound of bird.  Prepare stuffing, ��� allowing  about 1 cup per pound of bird.  Put enough stuffing in the neck  to fill it out nicely and fasten  neck skin to the back with a  skewer.  Stuff body cavity well, but do  not pack tightly. If you do, it  will be soggy, and the bird may  burst when the dressing, expands  during  cooking.  Truss the bird and grease the  skin thoroughly with melted  cooking fat. Place on a rack in  a shallow pan. Cover the top and  sides of the bird with fat-moistened double thickness of clean  cheesecloth.  Place in a pre-heated oven set  at 300 degrees for over 14 pound  turkey, and at 325 degrees for a  smaller bird. Roast 20 to 25 minutes to the pound for a bird  "'eighinff 8 to 10 pounds; 18 to  20 minutes to the pound for a  bird 10 to 14 pounds, 15 to 18  minutes to the pound for a 14 to  18 pound bird, and 13 to 15 minutes per pound for birds larger  than 18 pounds.  Do not sear, do not cover, and  do not add water.  Moisten cloth with fat from  the bottom of the pan if it dries  during cooking.  To tell if the turkey is done,  press the flesh part of the drumstick with fingers, protecting  them with a cloth or paoer. If  it is done, the meat will feel  soft. Or move the drumstick up  and down and if the leg joint  gives readily, your turkey is  done.  CRACKER-SAUSAGE  STUFFING  1 pound   sausage meat  4 medium-sized  onions  (chopped)  8 cups coarsely crumbled  crackers  V2  cup chopped celery leaves  1 cup  coarsely chopned  chestnuts  or Brazil  nuts  1 tablespoon   sage  1 tablespoon salt  Vz teaspoon   pepper  1 tablespoon thyme  In a. large frying pan saute 3  to 4 minutes breaking up with a  fork as it cooks, the sausage  meat. Add onions and continue  cooking 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Drain off the fat. measure and add enough melted  butter, margarine or bacon dripping to make 1 cup. Reserve  meat and onion mixture, and fat.  In a large bowl toss together  the remaining ingredients, then  add sausage and fat. Mix thoroughly.  This makes     enough    stuffing  SIBflll _-_������_��� ^g^g/ ��&s&> ^^^gw^^te  MONDAY, OCTOBER  SECOND,   NINETEEN   FIFTY  ��iir Roads���A Problem  READ ON and learn how  to become unpopular  in one easy lesson.  Roads. Mention of this problem, because  problem it be, is ever sufficient to cause hair to  rise and tempers to soar. Everyone complains  about the roads but never a man would think of  getting out and filling just one pot hole in front  of his property.  We know, and we know you know, that filling potholes on a hit-and-miss basis is not the  answer to the ever-recurring question of roads.  We know the roads become bad at times. We  know, the roads can be improved in many ways.  We are also aware that our road crews could  easily find time to come down to Gibsons and fix  the highway. "They do not have to work continually up at the Sechelt end." You can reverse  the geography*on this one and you will be in  the right if you live at Sechelt or improve on.it  if you   live in  the Pender Harbour area.  We suggest the only improvements we can  expect on our roads are purely local, supplied by  our own short-handed crews.  To be quite truthful about this road business,  why should we have .better highways? We would  all like to have complete blacktops but do we  actually rate them?  The   answer is no.  Mr Carson, Minister of Public Works has, he  tells us, set his department a schedule in road  building throughout the province which will be  to the benefit of the majority now and they of-  the future.  What is wrong with that? That is democ- ���  racy. That is what we want, is it not? We elected  these men to do a job of work. We believe the  Public Works Department is one of the departments that is actually setting a plan���a tried and  well thought out plan, before itself and then  attempts to follow it.  ��� We suggest this is the best method for at  long last getting proper highways throughout  our province. We would encourage Mr.Carson to  continue along this plan as we firmly believe  this is the proper method for him in fulfilling  his duty to all the people of B.C.  We can be selfish and sit back shouting, "fix  these roads or else." We can send delegations���  in fact some group may be foolish enough to try  it���to the Minister. We can lobby to the best of  our ability, but is that democracy? We can pull  strings and urge our member to camp on the Hon  the Minister's door, but do you think that is  correct procedure? Do you really believe* that is  the proper way in which to run a country?  All this does not prejudice the fact our local  crews may be able to better time their work trips  back and forth. Neither does it prejudice the improving  of our  roads  within the   ability  of our  ' own men.  The use of the grader and the proper distribution of effort is purely a local question which,  in passing, allow us to suggest, would be greater  and more efficient if we were to pay our engineers and top help a little more, in keeping  with what they have to produce.  It must be remembered that most highway  engineers draw less and have to know much  more than some skilled labour in a sawmill.  We want the best roads possible. We want  them here on the Sechelt Peninsula. But we do  not believe that using every and all methods to  disuade our minister from his overall policy of  the best for the most, is right.  Boiled down to Peninsula vocabulary it  amounts to this.  We have the kind of roads we rate. Maybe  better per capita than we deserve.

It needs you  and your support to assure its  future. Join  now."  SIR:  One important unit of our Sechelt community life is almost  dormant and should be revitalized immediately. That unit is the  Canadian Legion Branch. Irrespective of the angle from  which this is viewed, economical,  social or fraternal it only spells  out that much is to be desired.  Recreation and business facilities  must be open six days per week.  This will be achieved, to a large  extent, by selling licensed beverages six days  per week.  What would a virile Legion  Post mean to Sechelt? It would  provide employment, for Sechelt  residents���that means something.  It would keep our money on the  Peninsula. It would encourage  trade with Sechelt's business;. It  would be a profitable anchor for  travellers, woodworkers, maintenance men and peninsula residents.  Many of us go to Vancouver  with its relative expense because  we, in Sechelt, haven't the guts  to provide our own facilities. It  would make Sechelt the hub of  social and fraternal gatherings  for Peninsula residents. It would  be a boon to tourists who have  expressed dismay and dissatisfaction at not being able to relax  and have a quiet stop in congenial surrounding's and enjoy a  beer in Sechelt.  To make all of the  reality for Sechelt demands two  things. The most important is a^  far   louder   expression    of     the  smouldering   desire     the     great,  majority   of     Sechelt     residents  have  for   such a   venture.  Then  comes the  problem of financing:  the expansion and renovation of  the.   present  Legion  premises^   I(  submit,   Mr Editor,   that  not  IF  but WHEN the Canadian Legion  members,     women's     auxiliaries  and veterans of both wars, along  with the various organizations in j  Sechelt act unitedly, the problem'  of finance is minimized  greatly.  No one group can do it  The executive of the Legion  Branch in Sechelt should an  must be given every support pos  sible. It is long overdue for Se  chelt residents to assert them,  selves on such a,question. We can  tell people in Vancouver that w  have a progressive communit;  spirit in Sechelt but we negat  that expression by our presence!  in Vancouver drinking their beer  spending money on clothes that  we have in Sechelt and eating  in restaurants that do not compare with what we have here.

Mrs A. Johnson was elected  president; secretary, Mrs Ralph  Murray, and guardian of the  bank book, Mrs A. L. Jackson,  Wilson Creek.  Under the guidance of this  popular trio, another successful  season is anticipated.  Among items discussed, was  the forthcoming bazaar or gift  sale on November 25. Tea was  served by the hostess, Mrs  Blower. Assisting were Mrs F.  Mutter, and her vacationing sister,  Mrs E.   Wright.  I have been requested to thank  the many friends of Bert Wright,  for their kindness, in remembering him during his stay at  Shaughnessy. The many cards  and letters, far too numerous for  him to answer, were of the utmost importance, in assisting his  recovery.  Mrs E.

Incidentally,  the Wrights may settle in Vancouver,  in the very near future.  Many will remember Percy  Brewer, who, until his retirement a few weeks ago, worked  for Burns and Jackson. Percy  came up with his daughter for a  few days, to clean up the remaining chores and return to  Vancouver, where he has purchased a home and hopes to  settle down. We wish him the  best   of   luck.  I noticed Mr Mydska has taken  time out from His tuna fishing  to come up to his summer- residence for a few days. He was  accompanied by Arne Olsen, the  latter spent most of his time  fishing.  First of the fall whist parties  was*held last week. Mrs H. Macleod, v/on the ladies' first prize,  also the raffle, Mrs Cole won the  booby, and the first gents' prize  went to George Wright, while  Harry Lucken, was awarded the  consolation. These social affairs  are fast regaining their previously large numbers, if you have  any doubts of this, attend the  next one on Friday'evening next  at the Community Hall.  May I remind members of the  Ladies' Glee Club who absented  'themselves from the opening  night last Monday, also those who  wish to join our group this season, to be on hand for rehearsal,  every Monday evening, commencing at 8  p.m.   sharp.  I bet Andy Johnston is getting  a great kick out of seeing his  name in the headlines, and so  regular don't you know, I only  hope he doesn't get any ideas  of collecting ducats for it.  Latest piece of news is, the  Blower property has changed  hands, I'll have more about this  affair in the next issue, but for  the. present, let me squash the  old grapevine gossip, and inform  the general public, that Frank  and Mrs Blower do not anticipate leaving the district, they  have instead, . been looking  around for a place in which to  settle down.  ' Mr and' Mrs C. Lucken 'decided '  to return to, the Wilson Creek  area to live. They have acquired  the property, owned by the Ross  family ,who .recently left this  district. The Luckens will be a  distinct asset to our community.  Curly as you know, is a member  of the Roberts Creek orchestra,  also the Melody Makers dance  band, and the whole family is  musical, which makes it so much  nicer for us, so again we say,  welcome neighbors.  Just to keep the books straight,  may I. point out, it is W. E. Elliott who is pastor of St John's  Church at Davis Bay, and not  Mr Wright as was reported in  last week's column.  .

THE LOCAL P-TA held their  first meeting of the season recently at the Kewpie Kamp. A  fair' number of members were  present. A further sum of thirty  dollars was voted to the schools  for purchase of books. A motion  was proposed and carried that  all the other organizations  should be contacted and a joint  letter sent to the local 'MLA, Mr  Batt Maclntyre, regarding the  state of the lower road. The Provincial Dept of Public Works has  commenced work on the surfacing of the upper road. This  would seem to be to mistake in  view of the fact there are large  areas of wild land and unpopu  lated acres on this route, while  on the lower road, which is in  a bad state of repair, live most  of the population of Roberts  Creek, also this latter road is the  regular bus route. No doubt  there is a reason for this apparent madness on the part of the  Dept of Public Works, if so, the  people of Roberts Creek would  like to know what it is.

This is how one customer put it: "Every week my husband gives me so much for the household expenses, and that  makes budgeting easier. Yet there's always that new hat or  summer dress or shoes I need, and what's left over from the allowance isn't enough by itself. With a savings account of my  own, I can build up a fund each week to buy these 'extras'."  Such a Household Savings Account is a real help to many  family budgets. If deposits are made regularly, it's remarkable how quickly it will grow into a sizeable sum.  If you feel that you would like to try out your own Household Savings Account, drop into the Bank of Montreal branch  in Gibsons.

We all got quite a thrill on  Saturday when we heard the  siren and noticed those great big  clouds of black smoke rolling  high into the air. It was our City  Clerk, using a little of the oil  stuff to clear the brush pile on  his   Headlands   property.  Once again I'm going to repeat  the same old thing about the  little ones who play on the road,  around the church corner, riding  in their wagons. I guess they  think I'm a regular whitch, or  witch as you like, for I'm forever  chasing them off the road. It's  hardly fair to our drivers around  here, and how they haven't escaped being maimed or killed  outright is something only their  guardian angels know about. But  there is such a thing as trying  Providence too far. Maybe the  mothers are busy, but. it's too  late to cry when the harm is  done. I do think that something-  should be done about this before they are cried over.  St Mary's church will hold a  tea and sale of home cooking at  the home of Mrs J. A.

Automobile  Association  MOTORISTS "should be prepared for another tough winter,"  H. S. Hipwell, president of B. C.  Automobile Association said today.  The  auto club's  advice to motorists  is:  1. Buy   "Winterized"  tires     to  get your car out of snow. There  are many types on the Canadian  market now.  2. If you are "stuck" on ice,  deflate your tires, a little, to  gain traction.  3. Keep an eye on your battery and see the charger is working.  Nobody likes being detained  in the cold, Mr Hipwell said. "If  we have cars properly equipped  ��� and drive them expertly ���  most of our wintertime driving  delays  could be eliminated!"  A. M.

"Many municipalities place  this money from the government  in the general funds with the result that educational costs seemed to be high in comparison with  other costs. What is needed," the  speaker said, "is an upward adjustment of the Cameron Grants  Schedule in line with the increase in school operating costs.
