Building owner C. P. Smith  handled the construction which  is made to last for many years.  A list of costs sounds like the  annual report from the bank.  More than $500 was spent on  the battleship linoleum which  graces the floor of the three-  storey building. Each of the  many display tables in the hardware ��� section cost more than $260,  while the display cases are individually worth $140.  More than $1250 is what the  plate glass windows are valued  at. They will eventualy be spotlighted and 'boosted' with colored fluorescent.

He believed each province has  different situations and should  be treated  accordingly.  On the question of old age  pensions (Mr Laing is on the  Parliamentary committee now  charged with overhauling the  present system) he pointed out  there would quite probably be  contributory systems in Canada.  There would also be two age  groups.  One. at the age of 70, would  be without the means test while  the second, granted to persons  in ill health before the 70 limit,  would be subject to a means test.  Pensioned soldiers should have  this would also be taken care of  in the near future.  At present many burned out  soldiers get much less than the  old age pension plan'allows.  Respecting Indians, Dr D. T.  R. McColl and E. Parr Pearson  pointed out that only $7.50 were  allowed the indigent members of  the tribe, then the government  decreed what could be bought  with even that small sum.  Mr Laing promised he would  look into the matter following  his return to the centre of government.  Captain Andrew Johnston, local Liberal party president, was  in the chair.  Refreshments followed the  meeting which was attended by  more than 40 persons.

In accepting the nomination,  Drage pointed to the fine move  made in Gibsons by election of  Tom Humphries, CA, to the  board of representatives. He urged that Mr Humphries, "owing to  his vast experience and reputation should be elected as trustee  during the voting among representatives on November 30.  Drage stated "T have no ambition to do other than act as representative for the island, in order to look after island interests.  "With my veteran and welfare  work it will be impossible for  me to act as a trustee, if such  was the desire."  In thanking the speaker, Mr  Lett, also secretary of the Gambier Island Ratepayers' Association, remarked on the attention  granted Drage by  the  audience.  his retirement from Elphinstone  Co-operative Store staff.

Oil is found in Canada in Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, Ontario and  New Brunswick.  THERE  will be new faces on the School Board  next year. A few of the public decided to  have a shuffle. We can only hope the decision  was wise, and the new men and women will approach the job of handling our schools with at  least a degree of excitement and the will to do.  The position is hardly one to be. taken lightly. Despite small gatherings from which these  members were appointed, and the seeming disinterest of the public in general, it should be  pointed out that the Peninsula is actually watching the actions of our school trustees, with considerable interest.  It may be well to remark that every child  attending school has parents somewhere on the  Peninsula. Those parents are hardly completely  disinterested in the School Board's action.  New members will be well to sit back for at  least one meeting and silently absorb the workings. -  We know of one new representative who has  threatened to shake up the Board. We know of  this man's ability (not Drage this time) and we  forecast he will remain a representative and will  be denied the position of trustee. This man's attitude is hardly a healthy one. If it were possible  for him to fill the trustee's position, it would be  bad for the future of schools. The attitude is  wrong.  Our representatives will elect trustees on  the last day of this month. We hope they do so  with a belief in the future of our children and  not for the sake of appointing some wiseacre to  create a disturbance.   '  Men like Mr Tom Humphries and Mr A.  Funnell are not on the Board to be "flim flammed" by some know it all. They are the type of  men who are the backbone of School Boards.  Their's is the planned decision, slanted for the  betterment of schools and pupils.  In some ways we are sorry to see A. E. Ritchey resign and   in some we are very glad.  Mr Ritchey is a man of knowledge and experience which has proved invaluable to the  School Board,  particularly during years  of  con  struction and major repairs. He has had many  years on the' Board and in various public bodies  throughout the Peninsula. These have given him  a surety in discussions which are of utmost value  when more tha'n three people get together in  order to make a decision.  By virtue of his position in private life and  his being chairman of the School Board building  committee, he has been the target for more sniping and inuendo  than any other member.  We will say this for blunt, straight from the  shoulder Al Ritchey, that he is man enough to go  through with the job when he so decided.  Many men took advantage of his positioh and  threw darts from cover. Others took good aim and.  let loose with a broadside against the big man.  But it was always an uncomfortable position for  him.  We were very glad when we heard he had  resigned. We predict he will certainly save money now. Working for School Boards can often be  costly, despite a rather liberal allowance for expenses.  Mr Ritchey is now in the position where he  can apply, for every bit of school work that  arises, he can apply and probably will be awarded these jobs. We think that is fair.  We' think that is the position Mr Ritchey  would have liked to be in but his sense of duty  kept him where everyone who thought they knew  something could prod at him.  The School Board will miss Al Ritchey, but,  as  in royalty,  someone  will  quite probably  fill  his shoes. '  One last word. Only one district thought of  thanking the Trustees for their year of unselfish  labor when they made their annual report to the  public.  Egmont stands alone in manners.  That���you new members of the Board ��� is  what will probably happen when you have worried yourselves sick for two years. There is no  glory in this job. Only abuse and 'I told you so'  from every .corner, after you have made your decision and probably lost.  Such is democracy.  Thank you .  To the many friends of Bud Paton, we would like to express thanks for their kindness in sending flowers, messages of condolences, and for their presence in town at  the funeral. To Father O'Dwyer for his kindness at the  funeral. To them all, we are very grateful.  MR. and MRS.

Immediate Laboratory Service  Continuity of Electric  Interruptions to electric service are very annoying to  the users and the British Columbia Power Commission  appreciates this fact and makes every effort to reduce such interruptions to an absolute minimum.  As the Sechelt Peninsula develops, clearing operations are necessary. These, when carried out skilfully,  need not result in trees falling across power lines. In  the past few months unskilled or careless operators  have caused considerable annoyance to power users  by interrupting service through felling trees through  the lines. In many instances, these operators do not  realize the physical hazard which exists, and in several instances it is miraculous that no one has been  hurt.  An energized conductor which has been brought down  is extremely dangerous; it endangers not only the  operator who felled the tree which brought it down,  it also endangers anyone who comes near it until  such time as it is repaired.  In the interests of the Sechelt Peninsula customers  the Commission must recover from the person who  caused the damage all the costs which arise from the  accident. Nothing the Commission can do, however,  can reduce the inconvenience nor guarantee that the  careless operator or a casual passer-by will not be  killed.  To protect yourself and others from serious physical  harm and to protect your neighbor's electric service,  please exercise the greatest care when clearing near  power lines. 4  THE COAST NEWS,  Monday,  Nov. 20,  1950  34  PER TON F.O.B.

Eighteen members  were present. A reply was read  from the department of public  works re the Hall Road, in which  it was pointed out this was considered a secondary road. The  issue is being kept alive until  the department decides to put  the road in a state of repair  which the heavy volume of traffic demands.  On Remembrance Day a number of members from Branch 219  journeyed to Sechelt and took  part in the unveiling of-the war  memorial, c  A Remembrance Day dance  was held at the Community Hall,  which was a well attended success.  Annual Remembrance Day service was held at St. Aidans  church on Sunday, November 12;  members of the branch paraded  to the church. The Rev. (Padre)  Harbord conducted the service,  assisted by Rev.
