Still Premier  /  LESLIE M, FROST, wearing a while fireman's helmet, waves to  cheering crowds in his hometown of Lindsay, Ont., during a victory  parade following his re-election in the Onjprio general election.  The Progressive Conservative Jeader saw his party win 79 of the  90 seats in the province.  na  t.  snew  ��� :���:���;*'��� \:  &*���  In Andy's ?Bay, on Gamjbier Island, a new industry is rap-  dly springing into being. An industry, which already has a  onthly payroll of more thlatn $18,000 per month and slated to  o still higher.  And also slated to stay there*.  Such is the picture peeping through rumor ^and hope surrounding the work to? be carried on by Goiastial Towing Company  td., undeiv its managing director, O.H. New.  The story now uhfbldmg about thle breaking up of the S.S.  {iyenehy, the S,& Pacific Monarch and the S.S. Lady/Cecilia,  eing done at Andy's Bay', may well be the/type of story this  ^rea has long awaited?. . .ia> steady payroll. f     ?    ?  I?iast year the Coastal Towing processed 60 million ?feelj oi  jlogs, this year the total topped 70 million. "And," said a spokesman, "but for th�� unprecedented dry summer th-at,total"would  lave been la third higher."      , v . '  There could well be a many sided pay-off to this growing  ndusibry which employs local men when it can.   Provided   the  last two miles of road arei built  from the Cotton, Bay area to-  Andy's Bay, tlhje government wharfs at both New Brighton and  ambier Harbour couldi. start to pay back som of the many thou-  lands sunk in them. There are. no wharves at Andy's Bay. With  road, there would beno need 'i'or one.  Another feaiture, provided the road is built, will be the in-  |reased monthly cash income of; Gambier. Islanders.  Long fhiQ home of retired persons, the island has, more than  intttoy places, felt the direct force of recent inflation. Workers  for the? tody's ?3a^? prp^  'p^pert^ 1^^ the Bay-  while their wives? keep house close in, instead of.in Vancouver  as at present;    *  There is no ppsftoffiee at Andy's Bay at the moment, the  roadway would lalnswer tHait problem, there:: is already a fully  accredited unit at New Brighton^     ���   .  *        Byvirtue of ?t^ nigh impossible  at the site\ of tti?e!?^^ fy thefre is no need for one  | anyway. There are already townsites, complete with store and  jfte^eplipnefaW at  both   Gambier and New  {Brighton/ .��� .������        /:.?���;?������::  With a 15 year signed contract wit5hl the-Alaska Pine Company (owners"of Woodfibrei) to break up and load aiid unlpad-  its log barges, the Coastal Towing and:Gambier Island feel; safe  that here at long last is something u^on which to hold.  ' The Islanders feel that the eriterpMse is something of a  family matter. They are all willing and eager to help it grow  and prosper. As wellthey know that in this well of dollars can  they draw new blood upon which to grow and become? strong.  Two males of road is all that stops them from being together.  We hope the government, aided by a recent plea from represent-,  atives of School District 46, can see its way clear to7. building,  this one short link which means so. much to so many.  eetin  ears  Members  SECHELT.���Two new members, were sworn in to the  Board of Trade, Clarence Mc-  Donagh and Toni Taekowski  from Halfmoon Bay.  The meeting, held in the Inn.  November 26, dealt with many  problems, according to President. E. Parr-Pearson.  L.S. Jackson will convene a  meeting of all interested bodies  in order to come to some final  conclusion on the site for the  badly needed ceinetary, Mr.  Pearson said.  It was decided the, Board  which had been in the habit  of having, supper .meetings  every month- will discontinue  this habit.  "Suppers are too hard to  prepare for unknown numbers," Mr. Pearson said. "We  will have supper meetings  when the Board decides the  occasion warrants it. But until  that time, all our meetings -will-  be. strictly business." .  Conway Outline Water  More than 70 persons, November 28, heard Water Engijieer^  G. S. Conwey outline plans for the future water supply of Gib-  sons and listened to Commissioner R. Macnicol assure that cast  iron pipe would be used, provided same could be bought within  the budget.  Peninsula Freight  Runs Being Cut  SECHELT. ��� Yet another  service is lessening its schedule to the Sechelt Peninsula.  Latest to .announce curtailment of its present program  is Prank Wiaterhiouse freight  service which will cut out Friday calls to Still Water, Lang  Bay, Pender Harbour and  Halfmoon Bay.  The cuts, a company spokesman said, will be effective  from December 7.  Present schedule to Sechelt  will be cut by means of stopping the Wednesday call there,  effective the same date.  ; No reason was given for  curtailment,  ~ : r  on Wants A  Service  A r���^Tiffl(B>iff"'y^C>.N;: atetivities was hinted at for the new  year,: when Robert Bum told:the general meeting of the Farm-  ers1' ^ iW market for eom-  plete^��vO.N; services,Wot we have ho means of transport.  Ai the same time Mr. Burns  >)  pointed out that relationship  with the Department of Indian  Affairs and the local V.O.N.  were not on too good a plane.  He suggested the Indian department wanted too much  service for the $600 annual  donation made to V.O.N.  "On the surface, it is rea-  . sonahje tp believe- the Port  Mellon deal, once the road is  in, would be a better deal than  the Indian one."  Something of an ultimatum  was given the Indian Department, Mr. Burns said. January  is the end of. the'present con  tract and a new deal will have  to  be made."  George Marsden, Robert  Burns and W. Boucher; is the  V.O.N. committee ' charged  with trying to find an answer  to the problem.  Fred Fern was adainaut in  his contention that the older  portions of the village should  not be allowed to vote on the  pending bylaw "as they will  not be paying any portion of  the cost for the pipe."'  Commissioner Macnicol'  pointed out that tlie old village'  would still have to pay a pdr--  tion of the overall cost but it'  was also their $31,000 present  water system which was sup-;  plying portion of the security  for the coming $50,000 bylaw- ���  Engineer Conway outlined-  tbe proposed plans using; a*.  specially prepared map.  The   meeting,   under   chair-^  man    Locke   Knowles,    representing   the   Board  of Trade,,  heard James Hall suggest the?  water supply was hardly adequate.   Commission  Chairman,-  Mrs. E.N estman, pointed outv  the reason behind stopping of  sprinkling   last   summer   was  "because   <water    usage    was-  being  abused  and  we  had to a  conserve, the supply we had in-order to be in a better position*'  to fight fire if that had broken*.,  out."  It may be recalled that dur-r  ���ing the ;drye?si potion)'~6W0Mi'^  summer both Commissimier E,..  Nestman and Road CcwoHiiis---  sioner William Skellett reported water was running fromu'  the dam overflow.  Meeting ended with a vote*  of thanks proferred to the  principal for the fine job done.  School Board Remains  Unchanged After Meet  Hough Claims Calf Club  ide Importance  There will be approximately six members in the Junior  Calf Club, according to ia decision made at the general meeting  of the: Farmers' Institute.  thoughts  which  Decision tp import the]Aberdeen Angus strain is nearer.  It? is believed a bull of this  variety or a dual purpose  shorthorn"' may be imoprted  into the Peninsula in the  spring.  These are  were kicked around at the  meeting when Norman Hough  outlined plans for the calf  club and reported on the work  already done along these lines.  Mr. Hough, speaking about  importing the bull, warned  members that the strain to be  followed by the calf club  ���would quite probably start a  new era in the cattle world of  this 'area.  "Deciding on the type of  animal you are going to buy  and the breed of cattle to be  shown by the youngsters is  important,'' Mr. Hough said.  "The influence of these next  .

TO HOLD ANNUAL MEET  The Annual Meeting of St.  Bartholomew's W.A. will be  held in the School Hall on'  Friday, December 7, at 2 p.m.  ing in conjunction with the-  Forestry Department which  also built a new building closet  to the sehool.

To the .Editor,  The Coast News.  Sir:  During the past year, or  more, a number of letters (and  editorials) have appeared in  your paper with the actions of  various public service organizations of the. district; in many  cases the references made were  far from complimentary in  tone. Quite possibly, in many  instances, the absence of compliment was well deserved.  On tlie other hand, we have  among  our citizens  a number  of    organizations    who   .have  been and are carrvin'g on work  of public service at very considerable sacrifice of time and  money by the  members,  to; a  very    considerable!   benefit   of  the   public  weal.    Very  little  reference    to    such    organizations is made in either letters  ..to the press or editorials.  1 submit that such an organization   is the  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Brigade. This group,  with    little    advertising .and  little acclaim, has .for months  ' and   years  worked   faithfully  and    unremittingly ��� to   create  a*id maintain some' measure of  protection for the  community  against-fire, that ever-present  nightmare in an area of closely built frame buildings. They  have    created   a  municipally-  . owned asset of a fire  hall at  an expenditure of public funds  - far below comparable expenditures   for   somewhat   similar  construction;  they  have  built;  the   nucleus,  of    fire-fighting  equipment with a present quo-  ' tient of reasonable  efficiency,  and which can be built up to  * .a pretty :good outfit for rural  ���districts? by. modern standards.  ?Fortunately for ourselves, they  have   not   had   many   purely  local  calls, but  on. such  calls  ....as   have Jf- beerj?  made;   .seryice  ;  was prompt and/ efficient; Fire  losses   have   been  almost  nil.  The Brigade have been able to  give seryice in fire emergency  to areas ioutside the municipal '  boundary ��� service  that has    RI�� WATER BYLAW  "been much appreciated by the.    Editor,  The   Coast News,  persons and districts concern-    Dear Sir:  jRfcMW^rt?-'  outside the Village.  So it would seem Mr.Editor,  that the spirit pf community  service is not entirely dead;  that despite exasperating evidence to the contrary, such  spirit-can still be resolved into  efficient action; and that some  men are still capable of.withstanding the needling of captious critics, and continue to  carry on good *vork.  Such men I salute.  ��� Robert Burns  Wm; McFadden  Optometrist  GIBSONS  Phone Gibsons 91  Office     Hours  9:00   a.m. to 5:00 pjii.

Next, backtracking a bit, I went down to  Hopkins to see a new.mothe��-  and baby, who had just moved  up here from town and the  hospital. At lunch time a-proud  grandmother had asked me to  call. After Hopkins I took the  upper road to the K:orth Road  where I saw another new  mother and baby ��� learning  about this one from the notices  that the Public Health Nurse  receives, and which she passes  on to me. While visiting here  I was told about a 4-month old  baby who was just home from  being in an incubator all of its  short life. So on to the Reed  Road I went. After visiiinjr  this wee patient, I just crossed  the road to see another new  Prenatal, who was sure she  wanted a home confinement.  Here I discussed the necessary  ���equipment she would have to  collect. Then ba!ck along the  Upper Highway I picked up'  the Infra-red. lamp. Next to  see an, elderly lady at Roberts  Creek who had hurt her leg in  a bad fall.

TUESDAY:  With an early start I was  off to Gibsons to give care to  the mother and baby, and not  being satisfied with their condition I called in to Doctor  Inglis' office to report about  it. Then back to- Wilson Creek  to give general care to a DVA  patient. On to the Residential  School where I saw 13 children in bed with the Mumps.  In the afternoon I held the  monthly Baby Clinic when 3  'infants and 12 pre-school children attended with their  mothers.    The  procedure  here  was to record weight, height^  condition of teeth, and to tdisr-  euss diet and toothbrushes,-  and to give samples - of Cod  Liver oil and Pablum.

Next call was  to  weigh a month old Indian  baby, where I gave some Cod  Liver Oil samples. Then on to.  Davis   Boy   to   visit   another  new  mother   and   baby  home  from the   hospital.    This   was  my final visit for the day.  THURSDAY:  This.day wa's much the same  as Monday. Down to Gibsons  to care for the mother and  baby; three patients for I.M.;  the DVA patient at Granthams; a baby weigh back at  Gibsons. Then to Roberts Creek  for another I.M. and ai cheek-  visit to the lady with the sore  leg.  FRIDAY: '  I was off   to   town for my  weekend, so Miss Cooper gave-  care to the mother and baby  at   Gibsons   and to the DVA  patient at Wilson Creek.  SATURDAY:  Miss Cooper- again visited  the baby at, Gibsons for a  baith, and gave an I.M., and  on the. way back visited the  mother.at Wilson Creek to see  if the, ���Infra-rejd lamp was  helping, her.  SUNDAY:  ?Miss Cooper again went to  Gibsons to bath the baby.  With'this accounting of one  week's work, you will see how  varied each day V work is, and  also the different ways in  which I receive calls to new ,  patients.  i  3   Lines  (15: words) for 35c 3  Insertions  (same  ad)  75c  Extra  words,  above   15-word  min.   2c  eaeh  ���   Cash   with  osrder  Notices,   Engagements,   Marriages,    Deaths,   etc..    75c   insertion  LITTLE ADS ...

Unfortunately    one  sentence   shows  me   that   the  typewriter has me in hand and  it's possible that our combined  effort will end up on the 9th  page of a!n 8-page edition. It's  a position with which I'm not  unfamiliar,    but    some  " time  since   I   got left  at  the. post,  through    my   own    ejrcrors   of  omission.    December     6    will  show if we ��� the 'machine and  I ��� made it.  Those of you who are well  acquainted with travelling on  the Bllack Ball line may fail  to understand why anyone  would want to talk about it.  Probable after the journey is  over I will join you in taking  it for granted. In the meantime I don't take it calmly.  This trip has been, planned  and postponed as often as the .  Big Four disarmament talks.  For one reason after another,  it hasn't been possible until  now to get beyond the "1  think I'll go to to town next  week" stage. This has been a  little frustrating but nothing  really serious had to be attended to so the delay went  on. "Well, with Xmas leering  over our shoulders, plus one or  two other things the time has  come.  Departure was set for yesterday afternoon. Yes ma'm.  The four o'clock is the best  time to go, because you arrive  in time to have dinner and a  good night's sleep before,  joustling with the shopping.  Yes, rna'm. I didn't go on that  one.  The alairim was set this morning for 5.30 a.m.' Oh yes, I got  up.   Pussy-footed   around   the  house till I stumbled over the  heater in the bathroom. Stygian darkness,  lashing  of   rain  and hurricane winds, and the  fact that I can't; even remember my first name at that hour  of th'e morning, weirie too discouraging.    I didn't get that  ferry   either.   (You   are   quite  wrong, sir!    I stayed up and  ironed shirts. This was to en-  . sure that I left in time for the  ten o'clock.) Half an hour be-^  fore this exit I was seized by  the infinitely greaier desirability of doing all.?shopping ,by  mail ordeto.    No one in their  right  mind  would  go^ to  the  city on a day like-this, when  a pen,, ink and aJ'4-cent stamp  would   produce   the same  results.  (The loud .voice reminding me of the last mail order  inadequacies was drowned out  by the other voice telling me  about the excitement  of. a 15 '  foot tide, backed by a roaring  wind.) Somehow or other there  wasn't time to .g&t dressed- before the bus left and it seemed  unlike that the transportation  authorities would allow travelling in a dressing gown. It was  'rather chilly as well. So I didn't get that ferry either.  The one o'clock was no problem. Short of taking a taxi,  or borrowing a bike, there'  wasn't any way of transvers-  ing the 14 miles between here  and. the ferry. So I did some  more ironing. Said hello and  o>ood-by to the junior brigade  for the fourth time and firmly  resolved that 1.1 yearly should  make one more attempt before  settling, down in the country  for the rest of my days.  It doesn't do, to give up.too  easily. Besides I'm going to  ride on that ferry  or else ���  iaffle To Aid  The Sunshine Poultry Club  will raffle two eighteen-pound  Christmas cakes this year, according to Mentor Ed Smith.  "The money will be used by  the junior, club to defray expenses incurred in the raising  and showing of the championship fowls."  It may be recalled this was  the club that did. so well at the  P.N.E. this last year and made  a clean sweep of poultry classes locally, during the annual  fair.  Probable date of tlie draw  will be December 22, Mr. Smith  intimated.  ee  ��he (Eoast N^tus  For Quality Priotm  ^v����y��  or else I won't. ���  So, mes amis, you can see  that unlike those of you who  come .and go fairly frequently,  this is a big adventure and  frequent thwarting only maikes  the yen to ride on tlie ferry  that  much more  intriguing.
