The Village, following advice from Clerk  Jto?bert Burns will fence the suspected areas.  Water supply was recently passed O.K. by the Department of ?B*alth, Victoria, for purposes of the pending bylaw..  Waters-apply of M/V Quillayiite is chlorinated by order  of Itej^-rito^t of Transport.  J'  Wharf Additions May  Alter Parking Worry  ���2i223'g;es in the wharf at Gibsons "Avhich may start within  a few days," are planned to alleviate thi8. traffic problem now  arising on the sj^prQaeiies.  iL  oltcrman Returned As  [Liberal Group Leader  y ?HALFM?dON BAY.��� William Kolterman was returned as  /president of the Liberal Association at the annual meeting, November  to  15.

Despite the fact the group  was a Liberal Association it  would still act as spearhead in  an endeavor to promote community affairs, he said.  He also spoke of the many  projects which face1 the unit;  roads and electrification being  of  high priority.  B  Legion Poppy Drive  Well Supported  SECftELT. ��� The Canadian  Legion, branch 140, is grateful  for the support received from  the public during its recent  Armistice Day poppy drive.  Said W.A. president Mrs. A.  M. Batchelor, "wfe are very  grateful for the generous support received;  Said a Department of Transport official "The wharf approach will he. widened with  either .cantilever braces or a  ! mew row of piling in order to  add a new wallnvay to the  present structure.  'With removal of the walkway now in uste, this will leave  ; three Ia��es of traffic. One will  be used vas a down, lane, the  other as asi up lane while the  third will be utilized by vehicles waiting to board the  car ferry.  This is the first official hint  that cars will be allowed to  wait for the ferry on the approach. ���    ��� s.  The Village of Gibsons long  and bitterly has fought against  this practice, claiming it was  unsafe and a death trap if the  wharf- caught fire.  James Sinclair, M.P., point-,  ed' out that permission was  granted Black Ball Fie-rry to  dock at the Avharf, provided  there was no parking on the  wharf. The ferry company  takes the position that is has  no jurisdiction over the wharf.  A company spokeman pointed  out the company's authority  ended at the point where the  draw bridge was connected  with the wharf.  Ken Morton, district superintendent of the Federal Department of Public Works, had  vetoed the ferry landing on  the dock for the same reason.  Mr. Morton claimed ��� it was  dangerous to allow parking on  the approach or the wharf  proper.  The new additions to the  wharf, which will be installed  by the locardetachment of the  department may change the  picture as far a's oil authorities  are  concerned.  Local Man  Fined  On Disturbance Charge  Herbert Ronald Berdahl, 34,  was fined $50 and costs when  he appeared before Magistrate  Andrew Johnston on a charge  of creating a disturbance at  Roberts Creek Dance Hall,  November 3. He- nleaded-guilty  to the charge which was laid  by R.C.M.P.  Despite rumor.-; and  paper stories to the contrary,  it may be^a considerable time  before a hotel is built in Gibsons.  It seems quite likely, follow--  ing  information   from   author--  ities, who  wish   to  have their'  names withheld, ihe hotel p'ie-  tured  to the IvU may  be the  type  built here ���  when  and  if.  A spokesman f ��� r the company already formed to back  the much li'.uuV.'d building'  pointed out that the firm is  still in need of a decision from  one of its main backers, and a  site has yet to be bought or  earmarked.  It is believed thn plan,  which includes a beverage  room, may well b?. built on the  property owned by C P. Smith  immediately behind the present Sunset Hardware Store.  Mr.   Smith   has   already   intimated   he- has  s;''"i   his   price,.,  and is willing to vacate.-  Said   the|# spokesman, -"'you:  may    get  a  deivnite    decision:  within seven or 1 ��� *>_�� day?-, froi\\  now."

C^dlti  onats  The fires arc lit  In olden days when danger threatened a cominunity the call  to arms was sounded by riders, by footmen and by beacons lit  on the hillsides.  Danger threatens this community of Gibsons and apathy is  the order of the day.  Early in December, elections will take place which will  effect the; lives and way of life of every person in the village.  Many important and far reaching decisions will have to be made  by! the council of 1952.  This village now, as never before in its history, is in need  of men or women with vision and the Will to do their honest  .?foest for the community.  They, who allow their names to stand for Commissioner,  -must'be strong in more khan a physical sense. Many long and  weary hours will have to be spent in the most thankless job they  tj^II ever Jjave. y '       <  There should be fires burning on the hills surrounding Gib-  fco.13.i,- localise the village is in danger.  It is in danger of having men or women running for office,  ^because they happen to have fthe time or they want something  to do.  Each and every person in the village should search his or  iher ieart to find the sense of cSuty, the will to help the conn  imunity, without, thought of p-ersonal glain or,glory.  This village needs the best connmissioners ever. It needs not  so much men or women of experience as it needs those who can  sit and honestly! face a problem, in the same manner as a judge  of the court of law must inspect a case.  There can be no room for personal "winning an argument."  There is no room for the adamant, headstrong bullheadedness  ���jof "little man."  There is nothing romantic or glorious about being a commissioner. Often they are the butt of every conceivable type of  criticism. Often they get no thanks or kudos for work done behind the scenes, for long hours of study and digesting of information.  And yet our society, our way of government demands ��� in  fa^t hinges ��� on men and women who are willing to take all  ^this for the good of the pack, for nothing.  Stranlge it may be, but never the less true, that we cry for  leaders, then having set them up, do our best to knock them  -.down. ����  Those persons, who allow their names to stand for Gibsons  'Commissioners, musil; be prepared to take abuse instead of  thanks, miust be prepared to seem in the wrong when actually  their motives are above approach.  There is oifly one payoff in staniling for Commissioner ���  the inner feeling of having done a job well, without selfish  jnotive, for )the good of the community!.  It takes a big man or woman to fill this order. Only big!  persons should apply. .   ��� ������   i   ;.;-    ?    i *i-*j =.*���.-.������,-~^-;__  "kittle" people soon fall off the glory wagon which turns  out to he a vehicle of sorrow and anger. It takes big men to stay  and plug ahead and bring the village along the path of progress.  .?.-' Churchill promised "blood, sweat and tears." Britain rallied behimdi this clarion statement of fact.  In a smaller way, the same applies to Gibsons. We hope that  some of our citizens are big enough to stand for what is right. ���.  ���^Ve hope they accept the challenge to lead, with all its atteind-  ant-.tfoorns.  .   The fires are lit around Gibsons.  The call is out for  big'  ���People. L3fou-ggmb answer.  Much Ado  BY   CHERRY   WHITAKER  Dear   Bosses   (Editors,?   Ty?pe-  setters and Printers) :  I am well aware of the fact  that you have your troubles  ��� not the least of those troubles being correspondents and  columnists whose inability to  get copyvin ahead of a deadline is one big headache. Those  of us who contribute to your  aching heads have the utmost  sympathy for you. We .have  headaches too, and while recognizing* that as long as you  get copy on time you neither  want sympathy nor care about  our headaches. This is the day  we give voice, to what makes  us contribute to your cerebral  discomfort.  From   here  on I shall   dis-  The Shadow Goes With the Sunshine  pense  with the use  of "we"  "1".  This  big  'yzz��i^��j2BL  and stick to  will make it easier for other  c and c's to produce their own  specific wails, and will allow  for the remote possibility of  them not having any trouble  with deadlines.  The weekly pattern is somewhat like this: Copy is en route  to the paper. Only a whisker  separates it from being a week  too  late, but  a miss ��� being  as  good as a mile ,its arrival  on  time is just cause for relaxing.  There are seven more days full  of  hours  and  hours to   think  and write   next week's  stint;  to  make   an  outline   of   jthat  good idea that has been nagging at the back of the mind  for weeks; to look around for  some current events that might  be  used;   to  finish  the  thing  four  days  ahead   and maybe  write another. So that evening  is enjoyable.  The first day is spent catching  up on the  chores of  the  the  afternoon before,  and resolution Jills the soul about the  ?two eyening hours that are to  be  devoted  to  composing the  mind.   ?But   the  mind  doesn't  get composed that evening. In  stead the ironing wasn't done  in   the    afternoon    Mrs.    Doe  called, the phone rang eleven  times, six children decided to  have a bonfire and the clothesline fell down, so ironing and  the radio use up that .evening.  It  isn't  jtoo important   because there are still six days  left.   If  the second   day  goes  per schedule, there  will be a  free hour after lunch and another at night. But it doesn't  and there  aren't. Instead the  morning    is    spent    soothing  Four's    cantankerous   disposition ( mending a two foot rip  in   Nine's  denims,    answering  someone    else's   ring   because  it's difficult to hear properly  above Four's vocal efforts, and  rushing outside at intervals to  make sure that ?M?r. Bone's, age  two  months,   hasn't   followed  his wandering  mamma  up to  the road. Twelve and Nine descend on the house at noon hour  with all the calm, and serenity  of two typhoons. The effect of.  their   hearty   appetites,   male  vigor    and. gusty    departures  could only, be repaired by an  hour's   psychiatric    treatment  and  half a blood transfusion.  It's no use trying to compose  the mind, because by this time  it's  doubtful if  there'-is .any-  *~ J3U66A*J  thing there to compose. Anyway, the' things that weren't  done in the morning have first  call, and the shopping has. to  be shopped. That's the evening  the lights go out for the two  hours the males of the.house  are engaged elsewhere. There  isn't any coal-oil and typing  by  candlelight is  uncertain.  The third and fourth day  would do the trick if it were-  h 't for the man from the cleaners, two friends en route from  somewhere to - some other  .where, three phone calls from  someone looking for somebody  I never heard of, the fire going out, the black; pup getting  lost, the bank closing at four,  the frig defrosting all over the  shelves,' a fuse blowing in the  middle of the washing ��� it  all takes time.  The fifth day: It rains. Two  boys, one small girl, one white  dog, one black pup, two radios  tuned to different programes.  one phone, two fires to stoke;  that is-the evening that a 3-  week old social engagement  must be kept.  The sixth day: The man who  is to build the garage arrives  at the crack of 8.30 -a.m. The  sewing machine man arrives  at ten. Twelve has to be "spit-  and-polished" for a trip to  town. Six people have to he  phoned about a meeting. A  report card has to be studied  and signed. Four has a cold  and has to be soothed at half-  hour intervals. The back rjorch  has to have .an unexpected  swishing because someone  stepped in the white dog's  dish of milk. This is the evening the typewriter has to be  put away because an old and  well-liked friend unexpectedly  night.  drops in for the  And so we come to the seventh day, from which there is ,  no reprieve. The imorning pro-j  duces nothing. Noon produces J  a guest for lunch. The after-]  noon produces terrific mentali  activity, a slightly inferior]  brand of output and one greati  walloping headeache. And sol  mohsieurs, -vwe-: too,* have% our^t  troubles. ��� \\  THIS   TIRE  ��*g/JLi.S  YOU   THRU   WHEN  THE  GOING     IS    TOUGH1  BOOKKEEPING & BALANCE  Danish Accountant, recently settled in Gibsons, with  higher commercial certificate and 10 years experience,  offers you Bookkeeping and Balance.

It is only they who had the  experience of those years you  especially mentioned that can  be expected to understand the  feeling of those who are still  alive. No words- can convey  such feelings to others. 1 certainly cannot convey the feel-  lings your article gave me and  there is no doubt tha?t most of  the old comrade* who survived  and read your words will agree  with me that the point you put  before , the public is the true  one. Every kind word and deed  who are alive is worth so much  more than erecting an expensive headstone over the grave.

It is true that by cutting to  :.a very small top diameter it is  possible to reduce the scale of  .a log below what the scale  -.would be had the top been  ".bucked several feet lower.  Mr. Anderson states, "the  cause of all these troubles  seem obvious: insufficient  allowance for taper in our  B.C. Log Rule."  In this he ( has not fully  stated his case. It is not a  maitler of insufficient taper  allowance in^ the log rule ���  there is no taper allowance  whatever, except for logs over  40 feet in length.  I am sure everyone will  agree that "a fully equitable  log rule should be our primar^  objective" bu- I believe that  we haven't far to seek, as it  already exists in the B.C.  Cubic Scale, which is the only  exact measurement of wood  .content of the log.  'This scale overcomes practically all the shortcomings  that Mr. Anderson has found  in the foot board measure  scale.  It gives a much more aecu-  -rate relation between the volumes   for  logs  of   large  and  diameter than  does the  scale,  example   compare  of two logs:  32"  long  30" top  meter, 34" butt diameter;  (2) 32"   long   6". top  -meter, 10" butt diameter.  Scale in FRM  <1) 1237    100  i2)      31           2.5  ��� Scale in iCubic Measure  (1) 179.45    ..100     %  (2) 11.85       6.6 %  Taking   the  volume  of   tthe  large log as 100 per cent, we  find that the small log only  represents two and one-half  per cent in f.b.m. whereas it  amounts to 6.6 per cent in  cubic ^measure.  In cvher words ihe small log  [has more than doubled in  value on the cubic scale.'  'In scaling cubic measure the  ���actual measured top and butt  diameters inside bark.are used,  ���except that the scaler compen-  ���sai.es for swollen and flared  fruits.  At the best, the board foot  scale is an attempt, to show  how many inch boards may be  s.awn from logs of various  -sizes,, hut fo what extent are  inch boards sawn in the aver-  small  f.b.m.  For  scales  (1)  the  dia-  dia-  %  %  age mill today?' By far the  greater percentage of lumber  produced is in thicknesses other than one inch and produced  -by- saws other th-m the %"  .'���emiige on which >?he scale for-  ���r.mil'ia is based.  Why should a rr'p mill, a  -plywood plant or n shingle  -mill, "be interested ��� in the num-  Vber of inch boards their logs  -would make? They propose to  make tons of pulp, square feet  of plywood or squares of shingles so why fuss around with  *\ scale which reduces everything to inch boards when a  much heifer common denominator exists in the cubic measure.  Ji won Id be just .ns logical  to buy flour by the r umber of  enn efd'es it will produce in-  F+pj"*d of bv the pound, even  though we in'rnd to make it  into loaves of bread, buns and  method" of-  results than  by  any sys-  biscuits.  As time goes on more and  more of our timber will be going into pulp, processed wall  boards, plastics and the various products of destructive  distillation and less and less  into lumber.  Already much of the "small  wood" salvaged after standard  logging operations is being  scaled in cubic measure because the board measure scale  would give a figure so far removed from the true measure  of the contents that it would  be worthless.  When the use of this small  bundled material increases, as  it is bound to do, it will- probably become practicable to  scale 'the material in the bundle by submerging it in "scaling tanks" ��� which could be  set up at strategic points ���  and measuring the water displacement.  , By application of a bark  factor, which could be readily  obtained, the exact volume of  bundled material of random  lengths and diameters could  be quickly and ' cheaply obtained.  This '.' sunning  fers much better  can be obtained  tern of weighing.  At this time, the industry  in general is unfamiliar with  cubic measure and naturally  is reluctant to change from a  measure they know to one they  are not very clear about, even  though that presently in use  has many faults.  Where the cubic scale is a  requirement today for logs  produced on Management Licenses, the licenses, for marketing purposes, have insisted  On receiving a board measure  scale as well.  The difficulty and time involved in making such a '' dual  scale," where the number of  pieces in each timber mark,  grade and species segregation  have to conform exactly in  each type of scale, despite  somewhat different defect allowances in each, has caused  some adverse criticism of cubic measure scaling.  If, however, the need of re-  laldng the cubic scale very  closely to the f.b.m. scale of  the same logs wras removed  and the cubic only was made,  practically all these objections  would  disappear.  The matter of amended  grading rules is, I understand,  at present under consideration  by a committee chosen from  various associations within the  Industry, and it is presumed  that the new schedule of grades  ��� when approved ��� will be  satisfactory to the loggers, the  mills and the Government.

With no scoring in the first  half, Fred Loue headed the ball  into the net from a corner  kick.

The auction sale, held by  VON Auxiliary last week, was  a little disheartening to the  ladies who had worked so hard  for the affair. No doubt, the  cold. weather kept many by  their firesides. What they did  make was a little more gravy.  I know I got squeezed pretty  hard ��� they knew I wanted  something real bad ��� and  they got me between the auctioneer and a lady (won't mention any name), and I paid.

During the past-few years thousands of farmers across Canada have made good use of Farm Improvement Loans. They have  increased both the value of their farms and their own incomes.  Probably there have been times when you thought about applying for such a loan yourself. But when did you last check up  on the idea? Conditions and your prospects may have changed  since then.  The majority of Farm Improvement Loans have been made  to help farmers buy machinery of one kind or another. But there  are many other good purposes for a loan, such as the improvement of farmhouses and outbuilding?', or the installation of electricity, drainage and water systems. Again, these loans can cover  the purchase of livestock and the planting of fruit trees.  The cost of a Farm Improvement Loan i��, reasonable too -���  five, per cent a year ��� and it is repayable in instalment.? especially suited to the seasonal nature of your income as a farmer.  Why not think the idea over ayain, now? Then, if you feel  there is something* in the FIL plan for you, drop into the Gibsons, Sechelt or Port Mellon branch of the Bank of Montreal,  and have a word with Tom Larson, the manager. You'll find  him very helpful. __   ��� Advt.  fc***>��j  ikwL^o  ���    {Let*.

S  gggrs Warning  Logging operators should  participate in the development  of a new crop o? trees as the  old crop is harvested, states  J. W. Baikie, president, The  Truck Loggers' Association.  .^Fundamental to realistic  forest management in British  Columbia," he says, "is first  the development of an adequate fire prevention and protection program, and secondly,  the re-stocking of. cropped or  burned-over lands which are  best suited for the growing of  trees."  "If these two sustained yield  principles are followed," he  adds, "neither the public nor  the operators need fear the depletion of the forest resources  of the future."  These topics will.-be-emphasized at the Ninth. Annual  Convention of the Truck Log  gers  Association.
