Array Fashion Show  'Wa  ' GIBSONS���Local   branch of the  V.O.N, is now richer by $58.30,  the sum raised by the recent successful fashion show.  Aided by girls from the high  school and three of the very  young variety, the group sponsored what has been claimed one  ' of the best of its kind ever produced in the peninsula.  School teachers Mrs. Cloe Day  and Mrs E. D. Kane were responsible for training of the mannequins who carried themselves  during the somewhat ardous ordeal of parading in front of the  packed hall, with complete  aplomb and professional indifference.  Mrs. E. Nestman takes credit  for the idea, part of a long term  plan for raising money in aid of  V.O.N.     Dresses   were   procured  . from   private citizens and   from  1 the now defunct Lady Gaye  Dress Shope, now Irene's Dress  Shop.  Legionaires to  Have Cue Games  . GIBSONS ��� It  may not  be too  long before important pool and  ^billiard  tournaments   are  played  here.  / Local Legionaires are striving  to form a pool and. billiard  league which will compete within the unit then broaden the  range as the members become  more proficient.  In order to boost  interest and  create a competitive spirit, prizes  /will be   awarded to group    and  team winners.   It is believed billiard cues will form main prizes  | for some time'.

Following is the letter being  sent to prospective members. It  is being reprinted here with the  hope that all who are interested  will contact the Legion Branch.  140.  Comrades of Branch 140 desire  to improve the social welfare of  this community, especially that  of veterans and their families  and generously have offered you  the use of the^ Legion Hall for  one night each week.  It is proposed and hoped to  make a start by the formation of  a "rifle club" or Legion sports  club.  Here is your grand opportunity. At 8 p.m., Tuesday, the Legion . Hall will be open to both  ladies and, men, members or  otherwise, for miniature rifle  shooting. Please come to elect a  club committee, suggest ideas  and take part in some inexpensive and interesting shooting.  Equipment is at the hall. Come  and use it. This can be a demonstration to members of the  branch that you appreciate their  long hard labors in building and  moulding the Legion branch and  haU.  Gambier Pupils  To School Here  GAMBIER., I��Ii AN^^ei!_nK��Mnr  will be  sought  by  the school-  board   from   the department   of  education    for     James  Boyd to  transport   school   children   from  here to, Hopkins Landing.  This' move will fill in while  Gambier Island school is being  arranged for, according to Francis Drage, J.P., who made the  application.  Referring ��� to the letter from  Drage, the school board decided  it was a "most worthwhile suggestion." It will approve bf the  move in referring to Victoria for  final authority.  School Reps Meet in  October for Election  GIBSONS���Annual   meetings   of   school   representatives   and  interested parties will be held during the first two weeks  in November.  School representatives will be elected during the meetings  to be addressed by the School Board giving an annual qtcount  of its stewardship.  Dates and places of attendance will be announced later,  when it is hoped ratepayers will fake more than last year's interest in the outcome of these all important gatherings.  Representatives will be appointed on the basis of one for  each 100 pupils attending school in that particular area. Gib"  sons, by this reckoning will have three reps, Sechelt will be  allowed two and Roberts Creek possibly one. All other districts  will probably have only one per school district.  Trustees, will be elected from among the representatives  during a meeting later in November.  Three trustees will be up for re nomination this year. They  are: School Board Chairman, Mrs L. S. Jackson, A. Funnel! and  W. E. Davies. It was pointed out that these members first have  to be elected as representatives then can stand again for!  trustees.  " %. * .

George Elander's bid of $983  for construction of rough roadway, the only bid, was too high  in estimation of board members.  Said Trustee A. E. Ritchey, "Mr  Elander has the equipment and  the knowledge to construct the  roadway but he bid too high to  . protect himself in case he has to  pay for 'extensive- truckihg:X TX  think this could be done on a  day labor basis for approximately half the amount."  In a later interview, Mr Ritchey pointed out he was sure of  the lower estimate as he has estimated on such like contracts  for years and he is well acquainted with this particular  terrain. ,  The Board took/the veteran  contractor's advice and will attempt to have the . preliminary  work of one roadway built while  the land is still dry and can be  constructed for much less than  would be estimated by a city contractor citing prices for the complete, school.  A former attempt to have day  labor done in respect to clearing  and filling the proposed Madeira  Park site was vetoed by the Department of Education following  "outside"  requests.  Specifications for the proposed  day labor work on the Gibsons  site wil be laid on by School  Architect Harold Cullerne.

In 1936 a young man, Wilson  Edwards, while working for The  Vancouver Sun in Gibsons, fell  ill and had to be tended by some  good Samaritan lady. Some time  later that young man died as the  result of an airplane emergency  landing in the Fraser River but  his trip to the Sechelt peninsula  . lives on.  Mrs. F. Edwards, 3613 Pt. Grey  Road, Vancouver, would like to  meet the lady who so generously  and capably looked after her son  during the time he was sick.  "I have heard my son speak  so glowingly of someone in Gibsons who looked after him during those days, that I have always wanted to meet the woman  who would be so kind," Mrs. Edwards said.  Would the unknown lady in  question please write Mrs. Edwards?  Annual Shellout  Gets Underway  YOUNGSTERS on the peninsula  will be assured of a good time  and plenty to eat. when Kinsmen  put on their Hallowe'en Shellout  slated to start October 23 and end  October 30.  Hallowe'en treats will be dished out during the bonfires which  will be held in five divisions of  the peninsula���Gibsons, Roberts  Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay  and   Pender Harbour.  Through the various P-TA  groups each child will be given  tickets for sale. Top salesmen  will be eligible to win bumper  prizes to be announced later according to Kin committee chairman Res Godfrey.  Mr. Godfrey disclosed there  will be two prizes in every division over and above the ' top  prizes for the peninsula. Type  of prizes has not yet been decided, he said.  Classroom teachers will control  issuing tickets, each child will  start the week with $3 in saleable coupons, more can be had  upon application to teachers.  This is the type of arrangement used last year with such  remarkable success. It is believed the few small kinks which,  appeared during 1949 will disappear this year. "Things should  go without a hitch," Mr. Godfrey  reported. "The P-TA groups are  eager to help and we know the  children will benefit. This is a  good thing the Kinsmen are doing. It is in line with the plan  to Help Kinsmen Help Kiddies.  It will also prevent a lot of wanton and thoughtless damage being done during celebration evening.  Help Wanted  In Legion 109  GIBSONS���Wanted.    One   trumpeter or bugler willing to teach  a   bunch   of  enthusiastic   youngsters.  Such is the need of Gibsons  branch of the Canadian Legion,  which finds itself with several  hundred dollars worth of instruments, several keen, music loving young men who would like  to belong to the band���but without an instructor.  If anvone is interested in helping train these youngsters in  their quest for the worthwhile  objectives of learning to play  some instrument, would they  please get in touch with any  member of the Legion executive.  This is not entirely a one-man  show as there are now two men  willing to help with the training  but someone with the ability to  teach either of the horns mentioned is in great  need.  V-  The Board was in receipt of  estimates from a Vancouver firm  quoting prices of $6 per foot for  drilling with a guarantee of $600  plus travelling expenses and  other incidentals which have to  be added.  Only $500 was earmarked for  finding.and piping, of water for  the new school. Pumps alone are  estimated  at two for $8000.  Said Trustee A. E. Ritchie,  "This is far too. much money.  We are not even sure that water  will be where they do the digging-"  -iThis   started off  a debate   oh  the finding of water which  wound up with suggestions from  Secretary Anne Burns that a  water diviner would probably be  a good bet under the' circumstances.  W. A. E. Davies reported that  a good "witcher" could locate  water, estimate within inches  how far down it was' and how  steady the  flow.  Mrs L. S. Jackson, School  Board Chairman pointed out that  all methods  of    finding    water  were merely guess work. "We  will probably save money by  getting a diviner."  Questions of water will also  arise during construction of Madeira School. School Secretary  Mrs Anne Burns was authorized  to find the "witcher" and hire  him by the day in order to locate the precious liquid which  can spell defeat to the whole  school question if unlocated.  Trustees Have  Victoria Meet  GIBSONS���School trustees were  on convention in Victoria during three days last week.  .  Mrs. Anne Burns accompanied  the three-person group. The  school secretary will attend an  open forum discussion arranged  by the department of education  on behalf of secretaries.  Attending were Mrs. L. S.  Jackson, A. Funnell and A. E.  Ritchie.  Drage Credits  Gibsons Folk  GAMBIER ISLAND ��� Veterans  here were pleasantly surprised  when they received a 'thank you'  letter from the Royal Canadian  Navy on behalf of officers ahd  staff of RCSC Camp Latona.  Signed by H. W. Beames on  behalf of S. G. Coombs, Lt Commander, NOIC, Camp Latona.,  the letter, addressed to the president of the Gambier unit of  Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans, spoke highly of the hospitality and welcome proferred  by the unit and its members.  Said Captain Francis Drage,  unit president, "We are grateful  for the letter and are glad to see  our efforts to entertain were not  in vain. I would like to take this  opportunity of thanking the Gibsons members and their friends  for turning out on the special  occasions slated for the officers  and men of the RCN. Without  the very valuable aid of Gibsons friends it would have been  impossible."  Westview Group Add  Weight to Car Ferry  GIBSONS���Hint that a car ferry may be imminent came when  B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, speaking to a group of Westview  Ratepayers, reported, "I think it (the car ferry idea) looks fairly  good and hope it will be in operation next year."  Logical    terminals,     he     said,  would be Thunder Bay and Egmont. There is at present no road  between Pender Harbour and  Egmont, a distance of more than  three miles, but, he said, I have  received assurance from the Minister of Public Works that no  time would be lost in constructing this road if the franchise is  granted.  If the ferry service is initiated,  Mr Maclntyre pointed o u _t,  chances of having road conditions in the district improved  would  be enhanced.  Members of the Westview  group decided to draw a brief  and present it to the Government at Victoria urging and  Dointing the need for a highway  link with Vancouver through  the Sechelt Peninsula.  Among points to be raised will  be difficulty of transport under  present    probably    deteriorating  sea lane traffic ��� the Princess  Mary will have to undergo major changes this fall and it is  feared she may be withdrawn  from  service.  Unsettled international conditions will also be used as a reason, pointing out the value of a  highway link if war did come.  Vehicle registrations in Powell  River are now nearing 2000.  This could be part of the overall plan being followed by the  Transport Committee of the Gibsons and District Board of Trade  under Board President Robert  Telford.  Sechelt and Pender Harbour  Boards of Trade were to cooperate with this idea.  30IAH3S  VIH01C  Anvaan ividmxac By E. NESTMAN  -��-'"--' ���"��� iMimii^imii--- ,,,,.-.iiip-pppt.

A   very   fine   response   to   the  VON appeal in the shape of  our  "First"   fashion  show,   with   the  help of the high school girls, and .  the  teachers,   a  very   interesting \  evening was enjoyed by all who  attended.   The   musical program,  all voluntary, was very much appreciated.     Approximately     $50  was   realized   after   all   expenses  were paid. While  on the subject  of VON,  a   very   interesting article   in   the   VON  quarterlv  pertaining to the treatment of polio  after they  come home  from  the  hospital.      Back    east   VON   are  treating at home three small patients,  it   is  a  long tedious  progress, this treatment,  after three  months   in   the    hospital,      they  were   returned   home   where  the  treatments were     continued    by  the parents and   the help of the  Nurse.   The   VON    complied    by  visiting   daily   and   carrying   out  the  required  treatments  ordered  by  the doctor   and  the    nhvsio-  theraoist.     A   small   child   finds  the    daily   exercises   very     tiresome, and trying. Various means  of  holding   their   attention   must  be  devised, daily thev   do  exercises  to   fairy  tale,  and  nursery  rhymes,   and   little     tunes.    The  small  one   plays   with   her   toes,  each   having   a   name   and   each  one being sink. They   dance and  sleep and talk in her little world.  This mav sound fantastic and far  above .the   imagination   of  most  of us, hut it is very real for her  for  it is by this means thnt her  toes become better,  enabling her  to walk   like other children.  Already  a   great   improvement    is.  shown. The toes which remained  still two months ago. are moving  now. It may seem long  and tedious   but   it   is  very    gratifying. *  With older children toys are employed to make use of their arm  Cite ttLtmd ��fehra pit.

Editorial    Department,    Gibsons    45  Telephones:  Commercial-    Printing,    Gibsons    45  Mold T&e Tax Horses  TAX REDUCTIONS.  These are welcome words to everyone but  to none are they so welcome as to the low income  groups.  School taxes are in the news at the moment  and it is believed there are some wrong impressions rampant in regard to reductions.  Applications for reduction in school taxes  must be in the hands of the School Board prior  to November 1. These applications can only be  made with respect to the coming year's taxes.  Ruling on this may be found under section 114  (2) of the School Act.  Our School Board, like many others, has set  up a committee to review the applications when  they arrive. This committee has not as yet defined its own set of rules but it is believed certain clear-cut lines can be drawn which may be  of help  in guiding  future   applications.  We are very sure, without having ever been  told   in   so  many   words,   that   applications   for-  complete   removal   of  the   taxation  will  not be  considered.  It is believed the committee will, unless very  strong evidence to the contrary is forthcoming,  not reduce any taxes beyond that of 1950. This,  in actual fact, means that very few will benefit  by the committee's findings and they only to the  amount of a very few  dollars. s  Few of our citizens, who will find themselves  needing taxation reductions will get much from  the special committee. It must be remembered  that the increase in taxes is negligible and even  then will only be for a short time.  We suggest most applications will die at  birth. We are all prone to jump on any wagon  suggestive of conveying us past the ogre of increasing taxes. The increase in our taxes because of schools will amount to less than $4 average per year.  Low income groups are even less than the  average which has, been struck.  Representatives are on hand to convey, on  behalf of applicants, the strongest possible story  for what is actually their constituents. We suggest every application should be brought to the  attention of your representative. He .or she is  part of the machine running your schools. Representatives then can make a' point of discussing  the matter with the committee. This, in turn  would help the commi'X'e to find the fair and  proper solution to this somewhat wrong impression  story  that is  now going the rounds..  We suggest very little help will be given applicants. We believe very little can be given.  Any concerted, full scale attack should be made  against the department of education-finance in  Victoria.  Do not expect your School Board to answer  j-our taxation worries. The very best they can  and will do is to put you in the same position  as last year.  muscles. Another factor in the  little patient recovering from  polio, is their low resistance to  other diseases. They must be  watched continually. Very often  they will run a fever for no apparent reason, meaning a continuous checkup of temperatures  daily. This phase of VON work  though slow and tedious is very  gratifying.

The more the merrier.  The news for this column, is  like my paper, running out  (that's notepaper) but before  concluding this, the shortest of  columns, I would like to pay tribute to . the outspoken editorial  in last week's issue. True, we are  selfish to .a degree, but at times  we feel more resentful toward  the government I think when so  many promises are mere idle  words rather than the lack of  work carried on in the different  districts. The editor may, as he  says become most unpopular,  but that could only be with the  slim minority. B.C. is a large  province, and if the estimates  do not cover this or that section  for road repairs, I suppose there  is nothing we can do about it.  Incidentally, speaking of filling  pot-holes, how do you figure the  flowers come to be growing, almost in the middle of the road,  in front of my house? I didn't  get the gravel off the beach to  fill those holes.   So-long.  Don't put food on to cook and then  take a nap unless you set the-alarm to go  off when the food is done.
