Sea Going Houses  Residents of the ���; Village of  Gibsons were startled to see  three houses, on Thursday morning last, where no houses norm->  ally are���out in the Gap on Howe  Sound. -������-...���.;;-  It seems that these threevlittle  white cabins were being towed  on a raft by the Klein Brothers  from Nelson Island, and the tug  Arbutus, which had them in tow,  waited in the Gap for the rising  tide, providing this odd for the  Gibsonites.  :. Last week, towed by the  "Nanaimo Chief", a raft with a  'Cat- on board, was brought down  October 24th must/ybe ,a popular date for weddings, since  three Gibsons coupleshave chosen it for their 'Ds$\  Nygren - Lysakowsky  Miss ^ Clara Lysakowsky,  daughter of the late Mr. and  Mrs. Lysakowsky, whose home  was in Manitoba, -"and Walter  .

H. U.  Oswald, at 8:00 p.m$  Toronto Caterer  Purchases Gibsons  Motel  Mr. D. T. Smith of Toronto has  purchased the "Ridgeway Motel"  iri Gibsons, built and opened by  Mr.  Crane.  Mr. Smith, with his wife, travelled over ten thousand miles,  and approximately four thousand  of these up and down the Pacific  Coast, before deciding that Gibsons was the spot for them.  They feel that Gibsons is a  most beautiful area, arid situated  so close to Vancouver should be  a wonderful holiday place. They  saw" many attractive openings on  their .iourneyings, but none that  seemed to. havey the ��� possibilities  of this place on .the Sunshine  Coast.  Mr. Smith was in the catering  business in Toronto, having come  to Canada from Scotland^ as a  lad of sixteen.  Just now:," the Smiths are busy  pilanthg spring bulbs and making  ready to put the grounds in good  shape for the coming season. During the winter, they expect to  rent the motel suites as Winter  Rentals;  Mr. Crane, whose origrnal idea  "Ridgeway" was, expects to re-  naain in Gibsons for some time.  He likes the area well enough to  live here. , '     '  to prepare for the cabins, and to  bring them ashore when- they -ar-'  ..rived. ;  w The "Arbutus" left Nelson Island on Tuesday evening at seven  o'clock, and arrived in Howe  Sound on Wednesday evening at  nine. After a few hours sleep, the  raft was towed into the Bay area.  where it was positioned with the  help of the "Dorothy M", operated, by Tom Davies.  The cabins were towed off the  raft by about "10:15 on- Thursday morning. They will make  quarters for the men in the Klein  Logging  operations.  At the Tuesday meeting of the Gibsons Landing Commissioners  this week, Mr. W. Hodgson gave a talk on the urgency and desire-  ability of organinzing-for Civil Defense. He asked the Comrhissiou  for their direction in the matter, stressing the fact that Civil  Defense is not only for war time protection, but for aid in the  case of other disasters, such as fire, flood, earthquake, etc.  Mr.    Hodgson    attended    the   school in April for instructors.  He described the intensified  course that was given there,  and showed the Board the certificate that he received, evidence  of his qualifications as an instructor, in Parts 1 and 2.  He suggested that the Village  be organized, and by the expenditure of minimum funds, would  be able to add greatly to its  Equipment, such as fire-fighting machines etc.  The Dominion Government  and the Province each pay one  third of the cost of such equipment to organized areas, that  area putting up the remaining  one third of such costs.  He also explained to the Board  that they should be organized as  as a very minor part of the  a unit for the Peninsula, and not  Greater Vancouver organization,  which at one time Victoria recommended.  He described the Regina, Halifax, Fraser Valley and Winnipeg disasters, and how they had  received help, He also suggested  that merely because the earthquakes we have, experienced  have been, light, or the near flood  from a very high tide co-inciding  with? ��; Squamisbfewind hadJ re-  deeded,'-or'^e. po��ib_Bty^6f^dj|��  astrous fire has not materialized, we should riot think we  are immune from such dangers.  It "can happen here".  The Board thanked Mr. Hod-,  gson, but suggested that financially speaking, the matter should  be held in abeyance until after  the next budget meeting. They  promised to give it their careful  consideration.  There was considerable discussion of the Feidler water connection . It was recommended  that the work be done under the  supervision of the Commission  and Mr. Jack Marshall, that a  meter be put at the main, aiid  that water be taken from there.  Also that a bond be posted to  cover cost of possible damage.  Sunset Hardware  Now Locally Owned  Mr. and . Mrs. John Wood, of  Gibsons, advise that they, have  completed the arrangements for,  and are taking over the Sunset  Hardware in Gibsons as owners  and operators, completely independent of any outside direction  or authority as of November 1.  John Wood has been managing-  operator of the Sunset since coming to Gibsons in February, 1952.  Prior to that time, he was in the  Hardware business.in Saskatoon,  Sask. He has made a business  of Hardware, from the retail and  the wholesale ends, and has also  travelled on the road inHhe hardware line.  It is the intention of Mr. and  Mrs. Wood to dispose of the remainder of the Men's Wear line,  and operate purely Hardware.  They expect to remodel the  upper floor of the building, and  make their living quarters there.  Due to the changeover, the  store will he closed, November 2  to 4, for their stock-taking.  The  store will s+ill  T^e  known  as the Sunset Hardware.  A motion was made that the P_?  C be advised of this, and that  Mr. Feidler be responsible for  cosiis Jof such installation, of  servicing and maintenance of  the line.  Again much correspondence  was discussed in reference to>  Ferry Traffic and its possible  re-arrangement. Examinstiont  of the Cox property by the Blaclc  Ball personnel, improvement:  "plans for the Gower and Pratt.  Roads were all mentioned, 'and.  letters are to be written asking  what, if any, change in plans?  is in view by either or both o��  these bodies.  Following a report from the  Water Commissioner, the Board  recommended that the reservoir  be protected from surface drainage by the construction of a  ditch above it, and that drift  fencing be done to keep cattle  and other stock from ranging!  too close to the reservoir antf.  possible drainage areas. It was  also recommended that the reservoir might be drained at least:  annually, sine now the pumping:  station can supply the Village  during a period of inmimum  watery use,   and thus keep  the  r k#PP _fe_&_i^ : i:  'On   roads,; afiter; dSscuission^.'

The information we received was that hunters should not  .shoot or hunt over private property without having first obtained the consent of the owners. Leased property may be regarded in the same light as owned property, as far as obtaining  consent is concerned.  It is hoped that those who were making inquiries earlier  may be guided by this information, and proceed to get the  necessary consent before making forays into those jealously  guarded woods.  Our angelic cliildFen  This member of the travelling public (in as much as agoing,  ito and from work involves travelling a |ew miles daily) wpiild  like to know what would be the reaction of the public generally  and parents parlticuarly, if a programof positive and immediate  action were taken in the case of children doing petty damage  (which yet could result in serious and painful accidents) along  the highway.  Th0 reference here is to young children, some pre-school  and others very young school children, who stand on the sidesj  of the roads and jhhrow stones at passing cars.  This occurs, not so much in the villages as along the highways between. There has been, from our own personal experience, a considerable increase in this actvity in the past year.  Our own personal inclination is to step on the brakes, hop  out and adminislter to the offender a sharp spank where it  would do the most good. Broken car glass is not the only possible result of these thrown stones. An injured driver may  cause the car to swerve either into other passing traffic or inito:  the stone-throwing child, with serious consequences.      *  So far, we have resisted the temptation. Would you?  Howe Sound Farmers  Move to aid VON  The following is a letter sent  to the secretary of the Elphinstone Branch of the VON.  Dear Mrs. Haley,  At our regular meeting the  night before last much of the  time was taken up on the subject  of increased grant to the VON  of this Peninsula.  The evident lack of Governmental willingness to approve  the much needed allowance for  this most worthy cause moves  us towards further efforts.  We suggest that one or two of  the most competent delegates to  be found on the Peninsula should  seek audience with the Hon. the  Minister of Health and Welfare,  charged with conveying to that  official the unique geographical  situation facing our VON.  It is also our thought that each  and  every  organization  named  belbw  /be  approached  with   a  view to donating an unstipulated  sum of money to be used in defraying the delegates' expenses.  This unit has authorized expenditure  of  such money  for  this  purpose.  But it also feels  that  naming of the delegates should  remain with your group owing  to your cognizance of the situation.  May we have your Organization's reaction to this at your  earliest convenience, please.  C^ditoriai  LIGHTEN   OUR   DARKNESS  The \appeal which is made  annually for assistance for the  Canadian National Institute for1  the Blind.is pointed up in this  area particuarly by the work  that has been made possible  through the funds contributed  to this organization.  Three patients have beeni sent  to Vancouver for surgery to improve or preserve a measure of  sight. A mother has been sent  for special training in how ,to  ,care for and train a sightless  child. A number of persons have  been assisted with treatment, obtaining special lenses and many  other helps.  Regular classes in handicrafts  for the sightless or those with  failing vision are held in this  area. Books of records go  through the local'post offices,  with remarkable regularity, as  do special movie films.  It takes money  to  make  all  M.

The local Branch of the CNIB  has mailed two thousand letters  throughout the Peninsula asking  that donors place their contributions in the envelope provided,  and mail them early to the Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. Tom Larson,  Gibsons.  It is necessary to raise funds  in this way, to meet the altogether legitimate expenses of the  Institute. The many activities  that are carried on are done so  at a minimum of cost, and yet  such is the nature of the world  and humanity that there is al-  ways some cost attached to most  of the activities.  Locally, a Home Teacher comes  to the area once every other week  to teach the blind. Various things  are taught, from the reading of  Braille, through various useful  handicrafts, to the simple .act of  walking with the use of a 'White  Cane'.  People have been sent to the  city for treatments for their eyes,  some medical, some surgical.  Transportation is provided where  necessary. Following surgery, if  there is an extended period of  convalescence, the patient may  remain in a pleasant Gonvalescent  Home provided by the Institute'..,  Where a child is born blind,  and cannot be given-sight, a special problem is, placed on the  family concerned. Parents 'are  Siyen special training, to give the  best possible care to that child,  and help in turn to give the child  as happy'and well adjusted a life  as; is .possible.  Blind persons.are trained, and  then helped' to secure employment.    ;^:,..' ._ '    .������ ,���  ._  Over ^200 books have''been  published in Braille, and there  are 43r600,"talking-book .records.  (These are given free transportation ^hrough^- the mails):.^,��^'7.  White Vanes -are provided at"  cost, or'without cost, where necessary.  Eight special residences for  the blind are operated across  Canada, and ��� sixteen recreational  centres. Thefelnstitute also maintains a .special . .Social Service  Branch, to /.help with ythe special  problems   off the blind.  These arefbut a few of the services performed by. the 'CNIB. In  these^ things possible. Your  contribution; to the C.N.I.B.  mailed or taken in to Mr. Tom  Larson, wh|) has voluteered '_-  gain to receive and remit all  local (contributions, will help  your neighbour, and maybe,  iwho  knows?  yourself.  order to maintain them, the Institute, through its local branches  urges you to remember to contribute, as fully as you can, and  as early as you can.' Remember,  you are helping your neighbors  to help themselves, and where  this is not enough, you are helping to provide them with the care  they need. The next person needing, help may be a friend, a relative, or yourself.

A full compliment of teachers  were present and fifty PTA delegates.  Mr. John Pritchard, principal  of the Gladstone High School was  guest speaker, representing the  C e n't r a 1 Curriculum Revision  committee.  He stated that there has been  a general revision of the school  curriculum to approach more  nearly what the public wishes.

This in spite of the  fact that some parents, as has  always been the case, object to  their inclusion.

The part played by other agencies  such as church, Sunday School,  summer camps and other social  agencies was not belittled, but he  tried to show where the original  responsibility lay, and where the  greatest opportunities were���-in  the home itself.  There was some brief criticism  of Comic Books, with admissions  that some of these, particularly  those which illustrate the Classics  were quite valuable. Unsupervised movie fare, many of the  anti-social Television programs,  and other 'amusements' were considered to have an adverse effect  on the children of today.  The curriculum now ..places  emphasis on the fundamental  skills, but Mr. Pritchard feels  that the schools should teach anything that is desirable and useful  in life.  Regarding the 'Effective Living' course which created such  an upheaval, he thought that the  various groups should take time  to study this. There are varying"  texts for the different age-groups  in the schools, and the responsibility for the texts rests with  the  Minister of Education.  As revised, it is hoped the  school curriculum will be more  flexible, with more direct instruction given. Mr. Pritchard felt the  schools were doing an excellent  job.   ...  The PTA meeting which followed the general session discussed insurance for school children, which it was decided should  be turned over to the School  Board.  Talent Nights were reviewed,  and the topic of the purchase of  a piano for the .Elphinstone High  School Auditorium. is being referred back to the PTA, in connection with the collecting . of  finances   for same.  The use of the term 'Parent-  Teacher' was deplored by Mrs��  French, who felt that more people  than actual parents were interested in the schools, and that they  did not join the PTA as the use  of the word 'parent' was misleading. Secretary instructed to write  local paper explaining this.  The.    following    points     were  made:    Ten    year's    membership  and work required for Life Membership.

In ease you are curious, the  Resolution read as  follows:  'That the following Address be  ��resented to His Honour the  Xieutenant-Governor: -  "We, Her Majesty's most duti-  __J and loyal subjects, the Legis-  Sative  Assembly   of   British   Col-  mxabia, in Session assembled, beg  leave to thank Your Honour for  ��he gracious speech which  Your  Honour   has  addressed   to   us  at  ���the opening of  the  present Session." '  The Resolution had given each  _aember of the Legislature an. opportunity to discuss thoroughly  all the problems of his own constituency as welii as, broad questions of governmental  policy.  A member's work does not always take place on the Floor of  the House, in Caucus, or Parliamentary Committees.  Xast week I had a visit from  Mr.   Pipes,   General   Manager   of  l_e    Northwest    Telephone    Co.,  �����o 33 ailso General  Manager of  the    B.C.    Telephone    Co.    The  '-Korthwest   Telephone    Co.,    and  the B.C. Telephone Co.  are "associated''   companies;   Mr.   Pipes  ".lias, a dual personality.  '   i2_Lr, -Pipes,- who   started-work  tor  the  B.C.' Teiephbne  0b.   dig-  gins'  holes   for   telephone   poles,  rwas  a   friendly,   forthright  man.  .sKe explained how higher costs  and more complicated equipment  were forcing the company to apply  to the  Public Utilities  Commission for higher rates.  'The Northwest Telephone Co.  fea company concerned primarily  in radio transmission; ship to  shore, and logging camps. It also  &as exchanges at Powell River,  Campbell River, Prince George  and Ocean Falls. I have reason  to believe that the long distance  radio telephone service is lucrative.  The* Northwest Telephone Co.  Xttakes a good case for the increase in telephone rates in. the  Sour exchanges, but no mention  Ss made of the profits obtained  "toy this company from its radio  trasiness.  It is clear that the Northwest  "Telephone Co. and the B.C. Telephone Co. are so associated that,  Un effect, they act as one utility.  Robert Strachan, (CCF, Cow-  Schan-Newcastle), has a Resolution on the Order Paper urging  the government to form a Telephone Commission to administer  a complete telephone service in  B.C. This must take place so that  a good, sound telephone service  _an be given, not only in the  Sower mainland, but in the outlying areas where the magneto  telephone  is  still  used.

Mrs. D. McColl of Welcome  Beach is recovering from a painful injury to her foot last week.  We are pleased to report the  satisfactory recovery of two of  our Redrooffs neighbours. Mrs.  T. Tschaikowsky has returned  home, and we expect Mrs. H. R.  Pearce will soon be able to leave  "Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. P. Meuse of Half  Moon are back from a trip to the  Okanagan. They visited the Bob  Cormacks at Sugar Lake, near  Vernon. The Merrill Meuses with  son Peter, from Prince Rupert,  are with them just now.  The VON held a luncheon  meeting at the home of Mrs. E.  Curran at Half Moon Bay. Plans  for the forthcoming bazaar were  discussed.  We report elsewhere the death  of Mr. B. Barley. The sympathy  of thec whole community is felt  for Mrs. Barley, and the members of the family, many of whom  were present, including Mrs. Carl  Jacombe^of Schrieber, Ont., Mrs.  W. Alcock of Port Kells, daughters, and his son Bert from Ocean  Falls, his' stepdaughter, Mrs. M.  O. Roels of Vancouver.  CR. UNION ANNIVERSARY  Last week was International  Credit Union Pay, October 15th.  To those associated with the  movement this anniversary is  just another ^bigger and better  milestone in the history of Credit  Union activities; but a pause in  our reflections is .necessary . to  gain a more complete picture of  the situation.  Since its formation at Levis,  Que. by Alfonse Desjardins, a  Montreal journalist, in the early  years of this century, Credit  Union (or Union for Credit) has  developed into an achievement  embracing 8 million members in  Canada and the United States,  with assets of astronomical proportions.  Our local branch, the Roberts  Creek Credit Union, was incorporated in July 1941.- During the  intervening 12 years w,e have enjoyed a total of 504 members  although due to one cause or another in a district largely dependent upon seasonal employment,  the present membership stands  at 2 50,, with assets of approximately $3't),000.00. Over 700 loans  for a total of $180,000.00 have  been granted since incorporation,  to say nothing of the benefits derived from its health insurance  and other services.  In quiet or busy times, Credit  Union is always available for still  greater service to the members  of the Community.  rate of a private company. The  same skilled engineers and administrators are just as available  to a Public Commission as they  are to a private telephone company and can give as good, or  better, service to their fellow  British  Columbians.  I will be supporting the  Strachan Resolution when it  readies the Floor of the  House.
