Sechelt Motor has a ten year  contract* with Pacific Stages.  The latter company will supply all overload equipment at  the Horseshoe Bay end.'  Radio, telephone communication will assure-transport when  the car ferry arrives at either  end.  Many of the objections received by the Public Utilities  Commission centred around  the margin of time from pub-v  lication of the notice of the  through service to the deadline  for objections.  Mr.    Black    explained   this  was due to the late'-signing'of  various contractsv and the de-  sii^e    to    supply a Vancouver  service to local shoppers.  .   Ij^rst   two   trips -made   by  buses on the ferry on the 17th  'carried a total of 8 passengers.  Robert Macnicol and President Hodgson, both represent-  , ing   the   Ratepayers   Association,  asked   several   quesions  and pointed out the P.U.C. or  the   transport   companies had  issued   incorrect   dafta in  the  first ���advertisements   run    in  Vancouver    papers   and   also  scored the shortage of appeal:  'time;. ..���>���-  -rt^^here is no application sfor  . increase. in  tariff,  Mr. '-Black  ..' sadd.; "One had,.-been made but  . was-, withdrawn   at re quest . of  P.U.C. until the end of a test  peiriod."    .?.:..:.

C-~��Cll>ti  onats  se new comiiifssion  The electors of Gibsons have made their choice known and  bow it is up to the men who were elected.  There is every rsason to believe the coming year will be the  jmost momentous in the village's history.  There will be $50,000 to spend plus the taxes collected plus  the "donations" made by the provincial government through  gasoline refunds and returnable portions of the S.S. and M.A.  saxes.  The men who make up the commission will have to have their  wits about them or we can easily find ourselves, at the end of  the year, with little to show for a vast expenditure.  We are sorry that Mrs. Nestman, following two terms in  the commission, when she worked hard and loyjally, was not re-  lurnel. As she said, "that is the way of Democracy .- . . and it  is the right way.''  ,   To A. E. Ritchey and W.

We  Iiope the year end report .next vytear will bear'out pur believe.  Let us get behind arid helpyy.... and! it will be;  It's not too late  :   We have entered a new era in our transportation history  .�� . . and it may not be a. good one. '  Sechelt Motor Transport has won a point and now its buses  travel on the Quillayute, but it will cost the residents of the Sechelt Peninsula quite a bit of money for this service.    ^     ^   *  Next move must be a request for increased fares,.* Who will  pay for the $12 charged by the Black Ball Ferries for conveying the two buses . . . the people of the upper end of the Peninsula from Roberts Creek to Pender Harbour. Add to this a  sear certain boost of eleven per cent being added to the ferry  fare within a month or two and you have a clearer picture of  :What transport will soon cost.  It is doubted if that $12 bus conveying fare will be spread  ^>verthe complete Vancouver run. It is more likely, considering  She competetive nature of the Vancouvefr-Horseshoe Bay service,  that the whole load will be borne by the Sechelt-Gibsons end.  Roughly, this will mean an additional five per cent added  to the present fare. .���������..  All tMs little percentage mount up and come out of Yorar  jacket.     "... ' ... *. ������_  ^JEftS M&tePy alone, could   be eliminated simply   by giving  ,gr^^^het?tes when the passenger boards the bus at the point  ��f origin.'IThe bus company weuld then be responsible for the  ?haggajg^; ; ; like transport companies all over the world.  33&LS would doawaywithone worry.  Buses should be able to park at the end of Keith Road at  Horseshoe sBay to do away with" the long walk from the ferry  $p the present/bus stand. This would eliinjinate another problem!.  Buses should not travel on the ferry. This would do away  wioh and adidied $96 per day soon to be tacked onto our fares.  It may be remembered that two buses will only cater to a  very small percentage of the travelling public^ The majority  still have to walk on and walk off the ferry. But under the  "baggage! check system the crew and the bus drivers would handle the baggage for them. >  This is not a case of locking the stable door after the horse  lias been stolen. v   ,      > ���  . We know the Sechelt Motor Transport is now operating the  through service but publichearings will have to be held within  a very short time in order to grant pending increases. Then is'  the time to makeour voices heard at this $96 per day waste.  Have thePublic Utilities-Commission hold heai'ings on the  Peninsula, Have o^rfacts marshal^  It is time for thje Boards of Trade, the Village Commission;  and the various public bodies to get the ground work done on  the^transport? picture. v ;vs  They may finid this editorial is wrong ��� but we doubt it.  Reader $ Right  Editor* The News,   "  Sir: ���  V  I desire, to draw .the attention of Peninsula residents to  a matter of vital concern to  them, and which should have  their serious consideration.  I refer to the notices appearing in  Vancouver   papers   by  vPiateifie Stages aiid the Sechelt  Motor Transport between Vancouver and the Peninsula.  These changes cannot be put  into effect until the Public  .Utilities Commission has given  its consent. One would naturally assume the PUC would  desire to learn- the wishes of  the prospective passengers  aibout these chainges which are  going tov?mean a reduced service and higher fares.  That is the function of the  PUC. I. am    led    to>   conclude  that, in this matter, its desire  .   is   to   hand   down' a  decision  before  there  is  time for  any  of   our   Ratepayers''  Associations to  even  hold  a? meeting  to  discuss   the question.   The  notices concerning these changes   appeared  in the weekend  Vancouver    papers    and    the  Commission gave ' us "until December 12 to file, our   objec-.  tions, which would only leave  us three daySv-v?3  I think the residents of the  Peninsula will agree? that given  such a short time tbv file any  objection, any ? decision given  by the PUC. will, .only be a  farce. .yy-y::y:r  .��,.

The market stalls  are crowded with baskets filled  with this colorful fruit which  is-in good supply and is of  excellent quality.  The Grape Growers Association of Canada are concerned  about   the maturity  of   their  product,  as the  maturity  has  to do * with.'the. determination  of the  grade.   They  want   to  supply   the   Canadian   housewife with fully matured grapes  foi\ use  in, jelly making  and.  eating. In order to reach this  objective,   a4  refractomefcer  is  . used to-determine   the  sugar  content of the grapes and, of  course, . the ' sugar    content  determines    the   maturity.   A  limited number of special re-  fractometers   are.   b'eing used  this year by the fruit inspectors of the T3anada Department  of Agriculture in grading the  grape crop. It is,expected that  some    important    information  . will   be  obtained   from these  , tests   which   are   now   being  made.   It  is anticipated   that  these tests, used to determine  the  maturity   of   grapes,  will  have  a very beneficial effect  upon the grapes being offered  on. the markets this fall. This  should be of great interest to  all Canadian homemakers because*4 it shows that "Mr. Producer  is becoming more  and  more    interested   in   how his  product, reaches Mrs. Consumer..- .... ������  -When choosing grapes in the  market, look for plump, firm  ���fruit; If the grapes are for ta-  ��� ble use, make certain that they  do not drop off tlie stems at  |the    slightest   . .touch. ^ Avoid  grapes   that" are mouldy and  vwhite and be on the. look-out  for fruit which  has  been injured by frost /The  evidence  of this is soft, flabby fruit.  Grapes are, a very tasty  topic. Everyone enjoys eating  grapes from . the bunchv and a  ,well-filled bowl on .the table  or sideboard doesn't stay well-  ; filled long in the average  home.  While the so-called blue  grapes are most common, red  and white grapes are found for  sale also. The most commen  varieties of blue grapes are the  Serve?}.  Shortcake  with ICE CREAM  Fredonia and the Concord. The  Rogers is a well-known type  of red grape and the Niagara  the most popular white grape.  The average homemaker buys  the blue grapes for her jam  and jelly making. The home  economists of the Consumer  Section, . Canada Department  of Agriculture have found  that a combination of blue and  white, or as they are usually  called, green grapes, makes a  delicious jelly with a lovely  flavor and a rich, wine-red  color. When making grape  jelly or any other jel}y for  tl^at matter, it is most important to use the pectin test to  determine whether or not there  is sufficient pectin in the juice  to produce a jelly. If after  making the pectin test a clot1  does not form, in other words,  if only a few flicks of jelly  appear,, the juice should be  boiled a few minutes longer  testing frequently until the  pectin test is satisfactory.  Sea Serpent?  Zoologists usually find that  the skeletons of 'se,a serpents'  found on this eoast turn out  to .be basking sharks. According to Jordan, this huge, clumsy shark of the northern seas,  called also elephant shark and  bone shark, is the most massive  of all fishes, attaining a length  of 36 feet and an enormous  weight. It is a dull and sluggish animal, but it is said that  a blow from its tail will destroy an ordinary whaleboat.  Whalers occasionally take it  for its liver.

The Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported storage stocks of  butter at December 1, 1951, as 57,774,000 pounds as compared  with 52,835,000 pounds on the same date a year ago.  This    increase    of  4,939,000  pounds over last year is significant in view of the fact  that on May 1, 1951, storage  stocks of butter were 18,256,-  000 pounds below those at the  same date last year*  The Board attributes . the  improvement in supply to the  fact that during the past seven  months, May to November inclusive, butter production was  205,792,000 pounds or 2 per  cent higher than production  during the same seven months?  in 1950, and: that dipping ihe  same period butter consumption had declined by some.  4,700,000 pounds or 2.3 per  cent as compared to last year  for the same period.  To date there has been a  total importation into Canada  of 12,000,000 pounds of butter  of which the trade imported  4 million pounds. The Agricultural   Products   Board has  taken delivery of '8,500,000  and will take delivery of an  additional 1,500,000 early in  the New Year.  If the trend toward increased production and lower consumption, continues during the  next   five months,   December,  1951    to   April,   1952,   there  should be an adequate supply  of butter to satisfy all domestic    requirements,    with    the  probability that storage stocks  as   at 3Ia^ !.ly 1952,   will   be,  ���somewhat^ higher than on the  corresponding date a year ago.  ...   The butter supply   position  will,    however,'   be    reviewed  agaihvearly in the New Year  when   the figures  of ^storage  stocks^   as    at   January 1 are  available and further importations will be arranged by the  Board if considered necessary  to insure adequate supplies of  butter   to   meet   all   requirements.. ?

While  most   of   the . Board meetings  are legally open to the taxpayers, the unwritten law is, that  only    those    taxpayers    with'  some   specific   reason   should  attend these meetings and give  the Commissioners a chance to  study the many 'questions that  will come* up.  Any taxpayer may procure  , a copy  of "Village  Bylaws''  from the. King's Printer, Victoria, B.C., enclosing 35 cents  in stamps for same.  ���- Taxpayer.  Grape Deserts  X Many     homemakers    never  think of making   grape   desserts, but the home economists  have tried several which they  like very much. For instance,  they suggest that grape juice  may? be used instead of lemon  juice in Baked Lemon Sponge  Pudding. That is the pudding  which,   when   cooked,   has   a  custard   on   the   bottom  and  cake; on the top. Grape Juice  Sherbert is also very good. It  has a refreshing flavor and it  is wonderful to serve after a  large   meal,   because  it is so  lightj and  tart.   Lemon  Snow  i-may:|be made into Grape Snow  fby merely  substituting  grape  t juice?   for   the    lemon   juice.  \Many  other  colorful  desserts?  fean 'be made fey merely  sub-?  restituting, grape for any other  jjuice suggested. Another idea  the  home  economists   suggest  is that   grape   juice may   be  used instead of milk or cream  as the liquid   in butter icing  sfor   cakes.   Grape   juice   also  [makes  wonderful   sauces   for  cake puddings. Always remember   that afresh   grapes when  High Ball  SALLY FORREST displays neat  form on the beach of the. peaceful Pacific, which she says is a  wonderful place for a gal to keep  in trim.
