O.'jie problem of construction  has been, the presence of heavy  boulders in the oyeirburden in  the frequent heavy cuts.

It should also  be noted that owing to the  nature of the terrain,, roads are.  a big problem in Gibsons, and  that to put them all iiwto such  shape as to satisfy all the ratepayers will not be an* easy,  quick, or cheap process.

C^diti  onaid  Co-operafJoB  The dictionary says: 'co' means 'with' or 'together' while  'operate', frbm the Latin 'operar!' 'opus' and 'opens', all forms *  of the word meaning 'to work', would seem to be just that-  So, co-operation': means working together with a person pr  group, in a work, towards a!n end; to concur in producing an  effect-  The main thing to remember about this thing called 'cooperation' evidently is the 'togetherness' of it. It is not enough  for one half of the workers to agree to a. program, and then; leave  it to the other half to do the 'working' part- All tlie parties concerned in the venture, scheme, idea or job, must work together,  in order to have co-operatio.n. That does> Inot mean that the effort  may not be divided into kinds of work- or phases of effort- It is  Often by just such division that co-operation' may best-6 be  aeheived-  On the Peninsula, generally, there are many places where  true co-operation will eventually accomplish that for which we  are all. working in* one way or another: a better, happier, more  steadily prosperous area, ini wjhich life can. be fuller , pleasapter,  and more productive.  Speaking practically, .if-the various Boards of Trade, without losing their own- identities, can fkid a means of working,  together for the whole area! as muchi sp each does for its own  section;   .  .  If all the clubs and'-groups- having functions can; manage to  communicate with each other, and so avoid conflicting dates;  If they, in &ll their fine, local endeavors, will forget tiny  differences arid support each other;  If they support their local businesses, merchants and dealers,  they in their turn supporting the Clubs and the Boards of Trade-  Gradually, helping each other, the aj^av*vy|ll. g|pw?vin a common  purpose and success must come- 1 v   * '  ''"*-'?::;":*~:::'yZ~' ;\''X  X  True co-operative endeavor is the answer.

The owners brought one beast' home  shot through the lungs, following wjhich injury the animal lived  for a. week to ten days? Another apamal' had two bullets through  it and lived for a few weeks.  In these instances, the cause and extent of the injuries were  not immediately: apparent, and were discovered in post, mortem  examinations- - ..."'.*'.

(What  a horrible thought!). Mr- Peers,  and the hoys who take shops,  came to the/rescue. They made  plates  which   joirnied  the rims  and   b<a-ckbo;ards-   The  Reason!"  for the disaster wa!s that the  origiinal  plates were  made  of  soft iron, instead of spring steel.  . The  basketball   games   that  were to,, be played iajt Squamish  on   December   5th   have  been  calnjcelled; owing to reports of  a   few. cases   of   polio   there.  The   game  at  Woodfibre  will  go on. as scheduled/m the-5th-.  Three teams will make the trip,  the  Junior   and   Semiior   Boys,  and   Senior   Girls ,. team.   Mr-  Clark picked thte junior team  Jast week-  .In! a game last Monday, the  juridor boys beat the senior  girls by 21���15.  Finances around the school  are very low, so''money-making  sejbernes for travelling expenses  are being worked out; iuclu-  ding a beer bottle drive; hot-  dog and candy sales, and a  basketball tlan^e- The dance  will probably be held before  Christmas/ The. travelling expanses' are e^ceptirjihally high, ,  ,so how about suppprting your-?'  home teams by coming out to  the games and darn/ces-  Elphinstone and the basketball team lost a lot of laughs  when) Steve '/TheBrat" Lit&e-*  John.quit scho'ol last week to  go logging for tjndver^al Tim-:  ?ber- Steve played guard on the  basketball team last season and  this-He kept the team smiling  by doing or saying something '  hnmorous. eveni after a sad 1 oss-.  As I See It     ~  by Eric Lindwall  Nov.  21,  1952- Alarm woke  me at the hour of seven in the  morn.   After  partially  drown-?  ing myself in a de sp-e rat e  attempt to awaken:properly, I  eonsumed an adequate break-  _ fa!st,  dressed   ancV with   eyes  part shut, staggered out into  the nice, fresh, frozen air-Shivered   once,   criawled   back   in,  warmed, myself and tried again-  This time,  thoroughly  awake-N  ned and with blood chilled, I  made it as far as the car, wedged   myself,   (I.'em   of  ample  proportions); behind the wheel.  Then to Gibsons and thence to  Vancouver by glorified cracker-  box or "ferry". Took my place  on the bus  after jostling for  the   privilege   of   front   seat,  (eroded-up near the back and  inhaled? fumes all the way to  the terminal)- By ^his time I  had' th a wed   out   suf f ieien'tly ;  enough  to move ~ a  bit  faster >;  ' than a sniail's pace, and cutting  through the bus'���terminal, jmade  a bee-line for Woodwards. Yes,  good old department store, It's  my havenjevery time I go to  town -���the? only -place in Vancouver 1 don't get lost/Spent  the  dayvshopping  for  Christ v  mas  presents but  didw't buy  much.   (I can't stand to  part  with my hard earned cash )'���  That night, blood .beginning  to congeal with the cold again,  T   arrived   home,   never  more  happy to see the place   ���-   Ix  must'be getting bushed!  by, George Williamson  At the Student Council meeting on Wednesday, the subjects  oi school cheer.1!, and songs?  were discussed, with cheers  being okayed, but 'there was  nothing decided on school  .songs- Uniforms for the 'cheerleaders were asked for .and the  counicil has agreed to purchase  them as soon; as possible.  The council decided to havev  some  pennanrts  made  to   give  to  visintimg teams  coming  to  Gibsoinis to challenge the school  in  sports- These pennants  areu  to have a gold background with  black letters. It wais asked that  the home room representatives  fi-sk the pupils* in their rooms'  who.  waujfed  school   a-iings   or  who wanted school pins-  The E 1 p h i n/s ton e'-sports'  groups will give a cheer for  the. new cheer-leader squad  under the direction of^Mrs;  Day, George Williamson and  Mike Poole-  ' They are practising the - V  formation, with junior, Lynn  Madsen, at the apex of the V;  gnd senior leader, Arle^e Ilick's'  directly behind her.
