A Junior? Chamber oi: Commerce; Caravan of twenty - cars,  carrying- approximately sixty-  seven members of thei??''JC.'s,"  -from Vaiiicpuyer drove off the  i^pon ferry on��unday last.  They were met by local members of the ��� Boapd of Trade,  ;. and shown :��� allZ'av- o:u.nd the  "Gibsons,? area^ -including the  .Headlands, then down to Grantham's Landing and Hopkins  ' Landing.':?'";:ry::''���'; ���'.-?���.

Construction Soon  James Sinclair. .-^Minister of  Fisheries, in a letter to the  Coast News this, week announces the ^arly construction of  the Sakinaw  Dagi.  He writes that the, Fisheries  Engineer is now oh'the ground  at Pender Harbour, for the  assembling of materials for  construction; y  The foundations for this  project are to be.-Orilied this  week,, and concrete.^work to be  done j^ater in the?month- It is  expected that the-Alam will be  completed in December, unless  heavy rains and the resultant  run-off cause', unforseen delays.  The dam will raise the level  of Sakinaw lake, and hold the  v.water at the level of High Tide  water. It had been hoped to  raise it two and one half feet-  above high tide level, but four  of the tw;enty-four property  owners - have objected. The  Sakinaw Dam, however, will  be of such construction that  should consent later be given  the water may then be raised  to  the  desired level.  It is expected by: the Pender  Harbour fSshermen fhat this  construction wiilL-brin.g back  the Sockeye run to Sajdnaw  Lake- The fish-ladder being  constructed with the dam will  certainly ensure that they can  Renter the lake at ia 11 tides.

Pupils Help   :  At Nelson Island  The Nelson Island Community  Association  held  a~ highly  successful bazaar recently, the  proceeds -going toward a new  community   hall.   One   of   the  most attractive booths was that  belonging to the Nelson-Island  School. The numerous articles  displayed   were   both   artistic'  and practical, and made by the  pupils   themselves   under   the  able guidance of their teacher, '���  Mrs-- Jessie Sherry- The  Community Association had stipulated that the, proceeds derived  from the school booth were"to  be devoted entirely to future  school��������� projects-   The   amount  turned over was approximatey  $35.00.   Mrs- Cherry   and'her.  pupils did a fine job and they  appreciated the assistance they  received.  iveiy Uiscussion at  bard of Trade Meeting  The regulair monthly Dinner-Meeting of the Gibsons Board?  of Trade was held at the Mariner Cafe last Monday evening- There  was a good attendance, and the evening was productive of plenty  of discussion.

In his opening remarks, the  M-C- Dr. Duncan McColl very  much regretted that the community did not avail themselves  of the -opportunity of hearing  these concerts, into which Miss  Maclntyre  had   put   so   much  . time .stnd work.  The hours  of  practise must-be considerable,  - to   bring  this   group   to   such  a high standard of perfection-  r- The orchestra was heard in  selections from Greig, Fletcher.  Beethoven.

He gave a complete resinne  of the reports heard, the work  being done, and 'the plans for  future activities- The Board  considered him an excellent  reporting delegate.  Reg Godfrey suggested thp  formation of a! Roads an<i  Bridges committee to ascertain  where ever possible, the actual  frets of road construction on  the Peninsula, the amount ot"  work to be'done in what areas.,  etc- The. idea was to get reports  out of the 'Rumor' class ami  into something like solid information.

Owing to the absence of Mrs-  Gordon   Reeves,   the   regular  accompanist with  the  Orchestra,   Miss   Maclntyre   had   to  leave the. piano' and take up her  violin for one of the selections-  This was unobserved from the.  body of the Ha<U, so" smoothly  was the transition) made-  The ladies of St. Hilda's  congregation served refreshments, to bring to a close a very  pleasant 'evening-  Proceeds from this concert  will irerdevoted to work in St-  Hilda's parish.

During the rest of:  the year, letters later than four  o'ekfti: Saturdays met the same  fate-  Some members were of t'Sie?  opinion that Mail S e r v i e c*  should be a seven day per week  service, like the telephone  service.

(^dltoriat5  Teachers Convention no holiday  \  As this paper goes to press the teachers of our District  are meeting with those of the entire North Shore for a Convention. For them it is no holiday; they will be spending more time  in sessions than they ordinarily do in classrooms-  Nor are these conventions mere social "get - togethers. They  are, actually, one phase of the constant effort that teachers are  putting forth to gain and maintain professional status-  All of us throughout   our  community   should  interest ourselves in this effort, for all of us'are concerned in it-    In 'any  political area, whether it be the Sechelt Peninsula or the city  of New York, the biggest item of local government is the school-  Whether  the* instructor is well   or  poorly  paid, the  biggest  portion of the tax-payer's dollar goes toward the education of  the young. If they are going to be able in the future to mould  and move the world we leave them, then, they must be given the  best possible education that we can provide. The level oiNthe student cannot, however, rise far above that of the teacher. The  teacher, regardless of his qualifications, cannot maintain a higher  standard   in   his   community   than  that   communiity  is   willing  to grant to him and his profession. Today our tealchers are.trying  to do their share towards attaining a high level of education for  this District- Let us try to do our share too.  Farmers Meet  on  School Taxation  On  Tuesday  November. 4th  the B-C. Federation of Agriculture met with our Provincial  Cabinet to present the farmers'  ease on: reduaaitional costs-  Through the present system  of paying fop tthe cost of education by means of a land tax  farmers claim that proportionately to their income they are  paying more towards the cost  of education than are their  fellow citizen working in other  lines of endeavor, whether it  he within a Mun$e$palitty or  unorganized t e r-r i t-0 r y. The  delegation representing1 the  farmers was Lyal Currie'-.of'  Oloverdale, Arthur Swenson  of Ladner. J.B- Kidston of  Vernon, TP. Wilson of Kamloops, and Charles Walls of  Victoria, Secretary-Manager of  the BC.F.A- By asking for removal of the education tax  from   the   laud,   the   farmers  want it clearly understood that  they do not wish to escape-  paying for education costs ���  but only that they be asked  to pay their fair share-.  :The" B-C.

Tilly  Rolston, Minister of ?Education,  to, send two delegates to joint  meeting on educational finance,  along with\ delegates'?'from the  B-C'. Union of ?Municipalities  and B-C.

Another   matter   concerning  trustees,    parents,    staff    and  students is thait of party regulations.   The  matter  has  been  discussed  in  Effective   Living  classes from the student viewpoint-  A  conference  was held  under the chairmanship of Mrs.  Rankin,  the  conference  members being the President of the  PTA, the President of the PT  Council,    two    trustees,    two  teachers, and five students. It  is   hoped   that   through   this  conference,    all    groups    will  btecome  more   thoroughly  acquainted with party procedure,  -the aims and responsibility of  all groups concerned, and also  that  -an,   agreement   may   be  reached   on:   points  that   may  airise during the discussion-  Following    are    the    party  jgulations:  Invitations are made through  the office only and must be  ia the office at least a week  before the party- Only senior  students (grades 10-12) are  permitted to invite guests.

One morning 1 tuned in to  the housewife's favorite ��� a*  soap opera;. The announcer  warned everyone to stay tuned-  A second-rate organist made  a desperate attempt with the  theme, (but all that resulted  was a series of wheezes, thumps  and groans as he tried to  imitate a twenty-piece orchestra), an.d a sugar-throated  gentleman informed us that we  were listening to ''John's  Fourth Wife", (it is the Hollywood style to have four)."  Three dispirited creatures  chanted out the singing commercial and a booming voice  ���assured us that "new, orange  colored Foam" was the best-  in fact, the only soap, to use  for dishes, floors, hands, painted -wall and woodwork, clothes,  (ad infinitum).  All this took about five minutes, then another installment  Basketball Squad  Play First Game  This week-end, our Elphinstone  High  basketball' teams  travelled to Vancouver-to play  John- Oliver High School-  Mrs.  Glass f or d travelled  down with the girls team and  Mr-   Clark . coached  the  boys.

Fireball Chatter  Water   has   always   been   a  problem of this lower end of  the PeninsuLai but we hope that  it will be  alleviated to  some  degree at least, with the completion  of the  $50,000  waterworks program-  Water is a top  priority  problem to your Fire Department also. As  an. example in  t-tixswering   some   twenty   odd  calls so far this year, two and  only two, have been so located  that  we  were  able to  use  a{  standpipe for the hose hookup  and  on   one   of  these  the  pressure at, the standpipe was  so low that we had to run thei  open hose into the truck tank  and use the pump to boost the  the presure  before it was of  much   value-   The   remaining  fires  had   to   be   fought  with  water taken  from  a   ditch,  a  creek or the salt chuck or by  relaying water from the Village  system in the trucks 35t) gallon tan:k. This latter is a slow  process that we use only as a  last resort.  Before the start of this  waterworks program we had  18 standpipes in the village;  now we have some twenty odd  more of them, covering a larger arom Nevertheless, if there  is no standpipe or hydrant,  near your home, locate the;  nearest creek/ drainage ditch  etc. (use a well as .a last resort  only) 2nd you might save a'  precious minute by being able  to direct the firemen right to  it..

"However, by a fortunate chance I had with me a quantity  of Lamb's Navy Rum. After several tots of this dark and  heart-warming fluid, his attitude distinctly thawed. Before  long we were fast friends.  "Crisis came when I discovered that we had food and  water for fifteen years and rum for only a fortnight. I  imposed rationing, of eourse, and this testing time exposed  the dross in my companion's character. One night, I detected  him searching me for the corkscrew. Taking the only manly  course I slipped over the side with the rum while he was  sleeping and, sustained by the body-building beverage,  swam to the nearest licensed premises."  y  "A Rum story!" murmured the wedding guest thoughtfully.  "Most generous!" replied the mariner with seamanlike  alacrity. "A Lamb's Navy Rum, if you please."
