At  the  present  time,   there  is too much political expediency  ���and thus too much unnecessary  expense   in   the . building   of  roads , he said.  The public meeting, held  under the auspices of the local  CCF club passed a' resolution  Baking that Mr- Gargrave do  all in his power to bring about  the formatioji of a highway'  c o m m i s.s i o n- within the  province.  Mr. Gargrave opened his  meeting by remarking that he  was in Gibsons for a friendly  chat to ascertain the needs of  the Peninsula.  He reiterated his, former  statement that the government  was not obligated to build the  IOeindale���Agamemnon Bay  road within any certain, time-  They had obligated.themselves  to build the road, but had not?  obligated the government as  to time limit- He said, however,  ' that he felt the road would be  .-, built sooner; than he had; pre-.  vipusily  expected*   The; Black  Ball; ?Perries   had   offered   to  loan the government funds for  the building of a highway.  He said that the government  estimated the cost of putting  in new gravel roads on each  side of Jervis'Inlet at $500,000,  eard the reconstruction of a  gravel road from Gibsons to  Kleindale at $500,000- He was  of the opinion", however, that  the job could be done for less.  v With Powell River link in  service, ,he forsaw a great influx of motorists on the Peninsula.  "Powell River Company  pays its employees' well," he  said. "There are plenty of cars  in the Powell River area but  only 38 miles of road, and the  people up there are eager to  'travel further -afield. He pictured >them traveling down  the Peninsula by the hundreds.  ?He ..also said that the completion of the" Port Mellon  road would bring an industrial  payroll to the an-ea- Most of  the   residents  would   shop   in  ''Gibsons, and a good number  wil] want to live in Gibsons,  travelling- back and forth to  work.  On the s?ubject of hospital  in s ur a n c e, the MLA-elect  stated,that the BCHIS . wa^s a  step in the right (lirection, but  he feared that the petty' bickerings ? of other parties might  wreck ike scheme. He felt that  expansion of the scheme' was  necessary?; and that?the servide  ^hould be free to all. who needed it.���->���;. /..  ��� > '  .; "I do not believe the Social  Credit government really be-  leives in hospital insurance for  all those who need it," he told  his liste ners-  A question period which followed dealt with the question  Port Mellon road was first  surveyed in 1913, and has been  re-surveyed several times since.  He did, remark, however, that  some good work was now being  dorie on the GibsonsrSeelieiffc  road.  On the liquor question Mr.  Gargrave stated that the plel>  iscite was merely a "straw  vote", and that the government  could follow any course it  desired irrespective of the  plebiscite.  Questioned on whether or not  Gibsons could now go ahead  with a hotel with a liquor  licence, he said that as far as  he kneAv the law concerning the  granting of licences had not  changed. The findings of the  liquor- eommit--fc.ii>n would be  finalized i'm December and the  CCF was awaiting their findings with interest.

He told the meeting of the association that he  felt a change would be beneficial to the district as a whole,  and that he would continue  work aloinig with the group irt  whatever way he could-  Bert" Mathews, Powell Rivery  was named president of the*  Liberal Association, replacing  Captain Johnston, with Harry  Batchelor of Selma Park becoming fir.>t vice-president-  Mrs. B- Wood of Powell River  was named secretary and BilE  Jamieson, alsoi of the paper  town, treasurer- Other officers  were Harry Davies of Powell  River and Charles Williams of  Lasqueti Island.

We're asked to buy to be "patriotic", or to help "put  us over our quota." But, there is a far more important reason  why we ought to put our money into Canada Savings bonds-  They are readily convertible? to cash in case pf weed, and they  yield, an attractive interest rate. Thus they boast two of the  major.assets of a sound investment.  One American candidate for the Presidency told his audience  two weeks ago that the American dollar was the world's most  valued currency. He seems to ha>ve forgotten that our Canadian  dollar is worth more than his American dollar. Our dollar,  therefore, is the world's most valued currency, backed by  millions of Canadians with an optimistic point of view.  There is no safer investment today. Not anywhere in the  wide, wide world-  Thanksgivin  We have much to be thankful for.  So often we are so busy with our own little horizons of life  that we fail to look out around about us to take stock on that  which is ours.  It is the misinformed cynic who says we have to pay for  everything we get. Only the air is free, he sa-ys/ and soon, they'll  be taxing that! X   "     y ���  And yet, it is fallacy to try to judge values by.monetary  values alone. We have made of money a god���-rather than a  servant- Unfortunately there is little that wej as individuals,  can do. about that.  ;.^.   -, . v    . , ��� '���?*' . hh ��� X  But, we caii take time, this coming week-end, to. try to  evaluate our possessions, -not in'the light of what they are worth  in money,-but in what they are worth to the buildinig of a fuller,  more-abundant life���and a better world for ourselves . and our  children. .  II.B.C. Offers  Rural Lectures  The ninth annual short  course for rural young people  Will be held at the Youth  Training Centre, near the University, commencing on January 5, 1953.  Training will be of practical  value to all young people who  are genuinely interested in  rural life. Instruction will be  given in agricultural subjects,  farm mechanics, carpentry,  blacksmithing, cooking, sewing,  handicrafts^, recreation, rural  organization, citizenship and  other subjects.  The Youth Training Centre  is a self-contained unit which  includes dining hall, recreation  hall, shops and lecture rooms.  The camp, being adjacent to  the University campus, allows  for   the   use   of   the   various  University facilities.  Any rural perston between <  the ages of 16 to' 30 are  eligible to apply for registration in this eight-week course.  Total charge for room and  board is $20.00 per .<person.  Every student whose fare to  Vancouver amounts to more  than $10.00 will have the dif-  ferenlce between his return  fare and the $10.00 refunded.  This means the total cost for  room, board and transportation  for the entire period is $30.  No suitable applicant wiil be  excluded from the school owing  to lack of fundsv  Any rural young people  desiring application forms and  other information pertaining to  this short course should write  to Dr. G.M.

The opening of the new British  Overseas  Airlways  service  to  India and Ceylon is a further  reminder of the excellence of  these great aircraft. Superiority  of the craft lies not only in its  tremendous  speed  but  in  its  comparative quiet and lack of  vibration���quiet for  the  passengers, that is. People living  around the airports from which  the Comets take off, complain  bitterly of the hellish screech  as  they  hurl  themselves  into  the  air.  ��� ^\  Chief disadvantage is the  heavy fuel consumption but  developments are already  underway to cut down considerably the "consumption and the  number of stops necessary for  refueling.  Airline operators are look  ing to the British aircraft forv  use on their airlines, and it  looks as if Great Britian. for  a while at least, has an exclusive export that is in great  demand.  Mere Boys  Than Girls In B.C.  Contrary to common belief^  there are more boys than girls  in B.C. according to the latest  census figures;. There are '  596,000 males in the province,  and 568,000 females. There are  more males in Xhe^ 0 to 4 year  group; more mafes in the 5  year to 9 year group; about  1,000 more males in the 10  year to 14 year group; and  over 1,000 more in the 15 to  19 year group. There are more  females in the 20 year to.,r40  year group which probably -  accounts for some gals finding  it- a - littlev difficult, to find���a  maityX ��:   .X- '������; i  Women seem to be the more  hardy. There are 506 women  between 90 and 95 years and  only 390 men. There are ill  women over 95 years of age,  and only 62 men.  When the wind blows, you  need more heat in your house.

The meetimig also discussed  the question of garbage disposal for the village. It was  felt that a bylaw, charging  each resident with the job of  disposing of his own ��� garbage,  may solve the problem at  present .confronting the village.  The Womeni's. Institute had  written the Village Council  asking that rubbish-disposal  .cans be placed along the main  street for scrap paper but the  village council saw fit to ignore  that paragraph of the letter,  the meetmg was told.

A departure from  this jhowever, is the case of a  truck built by Walker and  County Car�� Ltd. in England  which can contract or expand  on the telescopic principle. The  design saves considerable time  during the loading process because it is not necessary for  the workmen to carry the  goods long distances into the  body. Rather, when one section  is full, the body is expanded  to provide a second ruction.  The truck, built of a light  alloy, has a capacity of 33  cubic yards.

And I  shall continue to take keen  interest in the lot of the  veteran," he asserted.  ��� Mr. Macnicol said that the  veterans t affairs{- committee  this year had been, '* a washout". He wondered if Canada  was really a democracy since  the committee was undoubtedly  muzzled and strangled by cabinet dictatorship.  The parliamentary committee, in meeting with the Legion  committee had shown an "unfriendly attitude," he asserted  and he siaid that the present  goyernmejDjt in Ottawa was  trying to sluff off the veteran  by forcing him into the old  age pension group-  ''When the members of  parliament voted for a pension  for themselves, > they did not  let the lack of finances deter  their enthusiasm," he said.  "Your Legion committee will  go back to Ottawa again next  month and will again ask for  $60. for smgle veterans and  $120 for married veterans-"  In rebuttal, Jimmy Sinclair  dwelt at some length with the  question of the pensioaii scheme  for members of parliament,  clearing up some points in connection with the scheme which  were not generally understood  by the average citizen of  Canada. He "remarked, too, that  no other country* paid out  grants similar to. the Canadian  War Veteran's allowance, and  in fact, Eomje? countries had  expressed doubt that an enlisted man prematurely ages  because of front-line combat-  He reiterated his statement  that the WVA grants should  be at least equal to those of  OAP grants���and if the Legion  could better that ^amount, all  well and good.  At  one  point,   Mr-  Sinclair  had   to   ask  for? a   courteous  heasrapg; wjhen  Mr;  Maemacol  kept interrupting him during  his talk.

Force fluids,,  especially juices., The Isolation  period is 5 days from the onset  of the rash.  Complications of measles,  namely pneumonia and middle  ear infection are the serious  aspects) of the disease. Tt is  wise therefore to /take precautions and not let childreni with  a heavy cough or complaining  of a slight earache, run around  too soon after the ilness. Notify  the family physician if any of  th ese symptoms develop. > AH  communicable diseases should  be reported to the M.H-O. or  the Public Health ?Nurse-  During Miss Facchin's first  month here, she,visited Jervis  Inlet, Port Mellon', Bowen  Island, ' Pender Harbour  Sechelt, Roberts Creek, and  Gibsons, held clinics and in-  pected sehool childreni.

School news is now arriving  from Bowen Island and Port  Mellon. We soon hope to have  news coming iri from the other  schools  in  this District. .  Mphinstone is certainly Pro-  Dodger- The few Yank fans  ape greatly out numbered but  they put up a good fight for  their team.  rWe noticed that about twelve  of the Roberts Creek students  were left at the school Wednest-  day; Mr. Peterson and Mrs.  Rankin, saw that they got home.  The school buses' are now  using the new semi circular  driveway-  The contractors are putting  a roiafcl in at the back of the-  school to be used for drive in  If or buses and an unloading  zone.  Don Head and Jackie Nestman arrived late for school on  ^Thursday. Don's 32 Nash had  a flat on the way from Selma  (or so they claim).  Quite a few of the students  have taken up bowling. Those  who bowl can be identified by ,  a sort of crippled and limping  walk.  Badminton has started every  Wednesday at noon with a 5  cent fee. There is a late bus  to take students home who play  after school. Ldla Farnham is  secretary-treasurer.  As I See It  by Eric Lindwall  Twice a month we have club  periods when the student  either joins one of the several  clubs provided for him or,  (heaven forbid) studies; Rather  than study I joined the Glee  Glub after being told that there  would be plenty of other boys  singing as well as girls.  Lightheartedly, my companion and I walked into the  gymnasium (the only place we  have a piano) vigorously exer-  cisin'g our vocal cords and  humming snatches of 'Old Man '  River'. We stopped aghast, for  the whole stage was filled with  girlk) and more girls! I was  about to turn tail and run,  when the sponsor of the club  bore down oni us, an expectant  smile lighting up her face. .  We   were   led   over  to   the  piano, given the key to start,  and.  everyone  began  singing  '^Love's   Sweet  Sion��*  Jexcept  me, I didn't know either the  words  or the  tune.  However,  when    they    struck    up    'Oh  Susanna'  I  sang   (i use  the  word freely)  just as loud as  my puny  voice  would   allow,  but   even   so,   two   boys   are  mighty"   insignificant    among  twenty-five girls.

The gjrai schedule is full  every day at noon. Monday is  girls basketball practice and  boys basketball practice, Wed.  nesday isi badminton. Tuesday  and Thursday- is? set aside for  house  league  volleyball.  The boys have decided not  to play house soccer, they are  going to carry on with the safcne  pick up teams, which are very  well matched.

P.S.,;If any boy likes singing  or likes making a noise that  can be classified as singing,  he is certainly welcomeMn that  club.  First days at public school  are often, a difficult experience  to. a child.

The  children aire  getting to know  each other and enjoy the give-  an -take of group companionship. Floor blocks and toy cars  are   popular   with   the   boys,  while the girls prefer playin'g  house. All enjoy songsi, games,  fit'ory    books,    rythm    band,  making   pictures,    and   other  activities- And all are unconsciously learning to' live with  others.

Formerly  fr haci been active by nature;  ;aow my world consisted of the  '/robmsi' in a house and a backyard. I had adways enjoyed the  ^social life of the young people  ?C knew; now I began to experience depression and loneliness.

Far more important to. me���  ���from the very beginning-���was ,  my mental and spiritual rehabilitation: And in this I can  surely testify that "more  things are wrought by prayer  than this world dreams of."  Prayer helped me : overcome  the major roadbloclss on the  -way up. Prayer gave me stability, patience, hope. Prayer  was my .anchor- Without it  things would be different today.  And with this foundation I  began to . rebuild my social  world. I became a member of a  .Voting Chjristtian group, and  through association with them  I began to take up studies,  engage in discussions, and take  my first steps toward a broad  horizon of social activity.  By 1943 my mental and  physical condition had reached  a high and healthy level- I had  come far. But it was not  enough. I wanted a job.  It was a big step, and I had  my doubts. I had not worked,  since "my injury , in 1936.  Frankly, T was scared and  nervous.

Or On ^Instalment Plan ���  Only 5 Per Cent Down    -  "For several reasons, the new Canada Savings Bonds are  justgbout the best investment going, whether you purchasethem  outright or buy them on the instalment plan," declared Tom  Larson manager of the Bank-of Montreal in Gibsons, Sechelt  and! Port Mellon, this week in discussing the new government  issue going on sale at his office next Tuesday- Z~  "One o�� the great things about Canada Savings Bonds,"  said Mr. Larson, "is that*you can always get the-full'-face value  of your investment. The price is guaranteed. -/_  "Another thing about this new issue," he continued, "is  that it has the highest interest rate on record for this kind of  ���bond."    ,.. '  "Each bond bears 10 coupons at the rate of 3-75 per cent,"  he said. "The first coupon covers a 21-month period (equal to  2.14 per cent per annum), due August 1, 1954. From that datei  one coupon at 3.75 per cent is payable annually on August 1,  until 1963. This replaces last years rate of 3.5 per cent and  amounts to 3-44 per cent per annum over the life of the bond,  compared with 3.21 per cent last year".  A lot of people are unable to purchase their bonds outright,  ?Mr. Larson pointed out, but, on the instalment plan r- for only  $2.50 down���anyone could make the initial payment on a $50  bond; $5 down pays the'first instalment on a $100 bond* The  remainder can be paid in easy, ,regula> instalments over the'  period of one year; ^:        ?,  "Although the-Government has removed the controls on  consumer credit," Mr. Larson stated, ''the need for fighting  inflation still exists. Purchasing Canada Savings Binds is a  fine weapon in this fight, and it's a wonderful way to build a  nest-egg for yourself-" advt.
