In reply, a letter from Mr. Lundy of that Be-  partment, advised that Mr. Sadler would call at the Coast Nckskb  Office on. Monday, and would give what ever Information possIM��.  that would provide us answers to questions.  To meet Mr. Sadler, Mr. Os-  parties are being resumed at the  Elphinstone Junior Senior High  'School, the first party of this  - season being the Sadie Hawk-  ins party on the evening of November 10th.  ,    The Board heartily-approved  ! the sponsorship by .the teachers  ren who, under present regulations are compelled to attend  .the school at Irvings Landing,  to be transported by the school  ferry to the Madeira Park Superior School was granted.

With his assistance it is  anticipated that the- entire district will be covered before the  end of the school year in June  1954.  Many details  arising  out of  Mr.  Chaster's report  on main*-  tenance   work   at  the  various  schools   were   considered   and  various suggestions for improvements wereappioved. J^merou  suggestions  ar||ing' out ofL ^ie.  rie^_ent^:a^uai:-''' meetings   were  also considered and appropriate v  actiontatai. One of these suggestions was that in 1954 the .<  ���annual report of the trutees be r  published in the local priess at  the time of the publication of  the notices of. the dates of the  annual meetings, and this was  /approvd.::       ������'���t- y:'yyyy: y ^ :  The   request'from   Madeira1:  Park to allow five small child-  Mrs. F.J.

Last  Sunday 50 of the total enrolment attended.  The teachers are finding the  new church hall is making it  much easier to teach their classes. The, members of tse congregation have been donating their  time to the building of the hall,  which has a full basement and  furnface, so the place is vwarni.  The main floor is 24 feet by  48 feet with a kitchen built off  the main part. Some of the furnishings have already beem donated and will soon be installed;  The Bible class and their  parents were entertained by  Mrs. McColl at a belated Halloween party. This was the first  social event which has been  held in the new hall.  Thursday, at 12:2J p:_a. a fire  alarm was turned in on a fire at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy:  Erickson, On the main street in  Sechelt.  The fire was caused by an over  heated garbage burner in the  kitchen. Woodwork had caught  alight, and the fire had gone up.  I into the attic.

Editor Takes A Break  The editor of the Coast News,,  Mrs. D. Wortman, is attending  the annual convention of the  B.C. Weekly Newspaper Association. She hopes to absorb,  from the exchange of ideas and  discussions of problems, something that will be of benefit; to  both the Coast News and the  area whicbf it _erves.  From Thursday--till Saturday,  newspaper people from all over  B.C. will be : jur attendance.  Duringthat^^^e,%e-Priii^_Jhop  at the Coast News will be closed.  wald, of the St. Bartholomew's  Anglican Church, Mr. Bevan, of  the Gibsbns Memorial United  Church, Dr. Hugh Inglis of Gibsons, and Dr. McColl of Sechelt,  and Mr. Graham, of the Graham  Ambulance service, were asked  to attend.  All these gentlemen had questions to ask, and situations to  have clarified. Mr. Sadler, and  Miss Reid, from the Department  of Health and Welfare, Vancouver, gave information relative  to the points at issue.  This information is presented  here as briefly, and as clearly  as possible.  The Federal Government has  passed Acts which govern its  own Old Age Security Contributions, and which enable the  Provinces to make 'additional  assistance to' the aged and to the  Blind.  For persons over seventy  years of age, there is a payment  of forty dollars a month which  v applies to .everyone, regardless  o^ yfinvai_cial circumstances. To  thosO who haye no other means,  further financial assistance may  y-fb^$^iven^:;anl^ycfer^  ^tar-' than ^nlanciel" may;  be  provided.   ;  For persons over sixty-five  years of age, under Old Age  Assistance, who have no means  Of financing themselves until  they reach Old Age Pensions  years, 'the Province may grant  a monthiy amount "of. $40.00,  plus, if required, $10.00 Cost of  Living Bonus. The person who  has need of this assistance may  still be ini receipt of $10.00 per  month from any other source.  Should this person be in receipt  of more than ten dollars from  private sources, however, the  cost of livin bonus would be  reduced by that much.  In other words, to qualify for  this assistance, the person of  ,sixty-five to seventy years of  age must not be in receipt of  more than $720:00 per annum,  including the amount of Government assistance.  Any person who receives  Social Assistance (This includes  persons in receipt of Old Age  Pensions who are also ini receipt  vided.

C^ditorlald  Public apathy  It has been borne in upon us that ithe Public has neither  thought nor worry nor praise, for those who handle its affairs.  By the Public, we mean John and Joe and Dick and Fred, as  well as Harriet and Lucy and Joan. You and You and You.  Everybody's business is nobody's business.  A small percentage of the public were sufficiently concerned as to cast Itheir ballots in the recent Provincial and Federal elections, in the choice of the persons whom they would  employ to manage the larger affairs of the nation and the  Province. At that itiime, we thought that perhaps when the  problem came a little closer to home, more people would be  interested in affairs that concern them as closely as the identity of tthose who have the governance of their children's well-  being in hand, through the Schools. We thougrt that when it  came to spending money, the results of which are immediately  apparent, the people of the disjtlrict would turn out for the hou^  or so that it took to hear the various reports and fto elect representatives. AH over the Sechelt: Peninsula, the attendance;  at these meetings, in spite of good weather and plenty of notice,  was so small as to be negligible. .������>.:���'��  Is it that the people just do not care what happens to their  money, or who says how it. shall be spent, or who shall be a  part of the School Board which, decides who shall teach their  children, which dentist shall be employed to care for their  teeth, who shall look af!ter their general health and well being?  Are the people afraidT to voice their opinions, or is it that  they have none?    "     *  ���������������;H- \ty%y'  y-y^yyyy^^  Coming closer to the point, in Gibsons itself, the only  settlement that has yet advanced to this stage on the Peninsula, there will soon be nominations for and election of Village  Commissioners.  The Court of Revision on the Voter's list sits at ten a.m.  on November 16th.  Nominations will be received for Commissioners on Pec.  3rd, from ten in the morning unltil noon. Voting will be on Dec.  12th, from nine in the morning until seven in the evening.  If you never attend meetings of the Board of Commissioners, if you never even read the reports of their work, you  should still take part in the nominations and in /the elections  of the officers who will serve you on this commission.  Nothing can ever be achieved by sitting down and letting  someone else think and work for you.  Generally speaking October  was more pleasant than usual,  although we received a dash of  most types of the elements, including the first frost of the  seasoni. Most unusual was the  dense bank of fog which rolled  over the. area on the 28 th, slowing traffic operations considerably. Most certainly this is the  month for fog, but it usually  has the decency to confine itself  to the Georgia Straits area.  Below norm'al precipitation  was recorded for October as was  the case in September. Rain fell  on 15 days during the month but  was of ia showery nature, and  temperatures were comparitive-  ly mild on the average.  Here then are the facts and  figures as recorded, together  with the comparative figures for  October 1952 in brackets.  Total rainfall, 2.91 (1.75). Days  with rain, 15 (7). Greatest rainfall in 24 hours, .68 (.81). Days  with fog, 2 (5), Mean tempera^  ture, (8 a.m.) 51.2 degrees. Mean  temperature, (8 p.m.) 53.7 degrees. Number of days with gale  force winds, 1 (0).  Hallowe'en  In themain, we are pleased  at the decrease in reports of  malicious damage occuring on  the Peninsula. Some reports  have come in, however. Sechelt  reports fences pulled down, and  other minor annoyances' caused  through wjarped ideas of amuse-  ment. ���_,;!/ ^  Roberts Creek so" far "Has not  Reported 'anything of-~a serious  -     . ��������� - '.        _' '  -nature. ^  Gibsons   reports   mail   boxes-  wrenched from their posts, fence  palings' torn   off;   and   another  which could have resulted disastrously.

Standard Motors  Opens In Sechelt  The Standard Motors on the  south-west corner at the cross  roads of the Main highway and  Porpoise Bay Road at Sechelt  was opened on Saturday, October  31,   1953.  The station is not quite finished, but the management decided to open it for the convenience of the motorists and others.  The building, designed by Mr.  Reg Jackson, and built by his  firm of Sechelt Contractors Limited, is 80 feet by 80 feet, a floor  area of 6400 square leet. There  were 1500 bags of cement used  in the floor and footings, and  3000 pumice blocks used in the  walls  and   partitions.  In the area is office space,  show room with a curved counter  and space to display two cars and  accessories. The show room has  408 square feet of plate glass in  the windows. Next to the show  room and office are rest rooms,  which will be accessible from the  highway by tourists and motorists.  The car repair department has  three  hoists,   one  of  which  is  a  twin post. The heavy machine  shop is a space .44 feet by 30 feet,  and equipped with a five-ton  overhead crane. The paint shop  is separated from the rest of the  building by a pumice block partition, and is equipped with a large  ventilator  to  carry off fumes.  Four large doors giving access to the building are operated  by compressed air. The centre of  the roof is supported by 12 inch  by 12 inch posts bolted to the  cement floor. The roof is sloped  to the centre with a pitch of 5  inches, with a single drain pipe  in the centre to carry off rain or  moisture. . ;  .     ',  The wood burning furnace has  the furnace door built into the  rear wall of the building, so that  the stoking can be done from  outside. Fuel can be taken direct  from the wood pile to the furnace.  The building will be painted  in the Chevron colors of cream,  green, and burgundy, and will  not have the usual service station,  signs, but will have two copper  signs carried on steel masts on  the corners. The two gas service  pumps will have clustered flood  lights mounted on their tops.  All this will make for one of  the most modern and attractive  buildings in Sechelt, and the  owners are to he congratulated.  Our Sechelt Correspondent  "Aries" has some justifiable  complaints to air this week, so  we are giving this space to them:  First, says Aries, there are  people who abandon dogs in the  village. The matter of ownerless  pups has always been a sore spot  in small communities, and apr  parently Sechelt is no exception.  According #o this correspondent,  the d��gs are put Out of cars and  simply left behind. Cats are not  immune from this inhuman  treatment either, apparently.  . The matter of Halloween  damage to the fences next to  the Legion Hall raises Aries ire.  It is felt that under the circumstances, the .degradation should  be repaired by those Who deemed it "funny" to wreck the  property.  The third is rather a-larger  matter, .and one calling for different action. 'It concerns the one  time plans for tlie establishment  of a steami laundry, where well  trained young Indian girls might  obtain steady employment and  perform a ^mucb>-needed service  for the Community. Our correspondent feels that at the moment  all the employment presently  available to these young women  is the seasonal hop picking or  the canneries. Any comment,  ���Sechelt?;i I  Gibsons Briefs  Friends of Miss W.M. New  will be glad to know that she is  settled in Vancouver, in charge  of the Kindergarten held in St.  Patrick's Anglican Church.

The hospital shows nine adults  and three new born patients in  occupancy, 'with klist of twenty  maternity patients arranged for  at present. .--.;..  Hospial facilities, including  those for anaesthesia, are being  improved.  The Women's Auxiliary has  donated to the Hospital the sum  of three hundred dollars, a most  timely donation. It is understood  that they have raised a further  three hundred dollars through  their bazaar.  The B.C.H.I.S. 1ms become insistent on the collections of old  accounts due the Hospital, so the  Board has begun a campaign urging all persons who have account-  to make a real effort at settling  same.  The Chairman of the Board  urges that^all who have accounts  which may be in any way in dispute, should meet with the Board  and 4 a settlement may be arranged. Also, for large accounts,  he states that if these concerned  should meet with Board members  and make arrangements for per-  " iodic smaller payments of these  accounts.  That Port  Mellon Road  On Wednesday morning this  reporter took a trip on the Bus  to Port Mellon and return. The  Port Mellon Road, which ought  to go down in song and story, i9  passable. There are several places  where, despite the grading of two  days ago, the 1ms was in low  gear, due to roughness and holes.  It took the full schedule time  to make the run, with the briefest of stops at the Port Mellon  end.  There was equipment employed  by the Government working on  the road, and the grader, with  Milt Brown at the controls was  also on the scene. As yet, according to the Department of Public  Works engineer, Mr. MacKay, the  Government has not yet officially  taken over, but he is just awaiting word as to when this formality  will be performed.  Gibsons Library  Has Wide Selection  The Gibsons' Public Library  now has a fairly wide selection  of both adult and juvenile books,  about six hundred volumes in  all, and more are on order.  The Library, located in the  premises of.N.R. McKibbin, adjoining the Post Office, is open  from two to four p.m. Tuesdays.  Plans are now being made to  open on Saturdays as well  during the same hours.  Since Provincial and Municipal grants are intended for  book purchase, the Library requires a membership fee of fifty  cents. This fee allows all members of a family to take home;  both adult and juvenile books  for a year.  Juveniles who wish to borrow  books should call at the Library  for a parental consent form.

The   final   score  ____{ _hr_e to one for the Braves,  S&s-i the score  does  not  indicate  rH-e trend of play. Gibsons completely   dominated' play    in    the  :_5xst Sialf, but were sadly lacking  3S��Ting   punch   in.   front   of   the  .^oal.   In  those    first    forty-five  _s_In_tes,   Sechelt   had   but   five  direct shots on goal.  All the scoring came in the  second half as the two teams began to open, up and play good  soccer. The Braves scored first  and had a short-lived one to nothing lead before outside-right  Daye Lucken tied it at one to one  on a long shot from the wing.  From then on the Braves settled  down to play good ball and were  rewarded when they scored two  beautifully executed goals to  clinch the: game.  Steve Littlejohn was the standout for the losers as he played a  steady, heads-up soccer game. It  was his first game after almost  a year's lay-off.

Well! So now the Badminton  Club is on the spot. So rapidly  has it risen to fame for its intellectual and erudite discussions  during the intermission "mug up"  that seekers of truth and information pay for an evening's game  merely to bring their problems  for prognosis.  One such was put before the  able athletes last week, and,  justifiedly,   they   felt   they   had  scored a botanica victory when,  among them, they advised that  the subject under discussion,  namely the 'Monkey Puzzle Tree',  Araucaria Imbricata, a tall, Chilean pine, has interwoven  branches so crowded that it puz-  gles monkeys to climb it. Also,  they informed their questioner,  its nuts are edible and its; timber  highly valued. The timber is hard  and durable and takes a fine  polish.  The Monkey Puzzle Tree, they;  said, must not be confused with  Lecythis Ollaria, the most gigantic trees in the ancient forests  of Brazil. For that matter, neither   should   it   be   confused   with  Attalea Funifera, which, as everyone knows, is the stiff fibre obtained from the leaf stalks of a  South American palm, and is  commonly called Monkey Grass.  None of this information was  satisfactory, however, as the  question concerned, particularly,  a matter personal and private to  the tree, that of propagation.  Such, at least, was the opinion of  the players as they abandoned  the subject and went on with  their games.

It seemed to us that with the  news items as supplied by the  Coast News, the Peninsula's one  organ for gathering and supplying  news on the Peninsula, that_the  program was stretched a little  thin. This may be because it was  the first one of an hour's length,  dnd that following programs will  be a bit 'meatier'...  , It should:;be remembered that  so far,.-there bave��beiien no additional items, brought:yin or phoned  in, that itiight.be added to the  news and. stories.

Station CHUB has announced  that it will-welcome items of interest in the. way of historical  background of p la c e names,  stories of interest about people  in the area, and descriptive material in connection with the  Peninsula. Coast News is willing  to see that any of this material  reaches the station CHUB.  There is another consideration,  to be thought of. Support of your  local paper will increase its support of CHUB. The two organs  working together can be of inestimable value to an area like  the Peninsula.  Your Newspaper,, which is still  a young and struggling one, needs  all the local support it t;an get,  and it gives full value for all  support received. There is not an  area in Canada so small, or with  so few industrial sources of support, that has a weekly newspaper, no matter how' small.  Coast News is here to help the  area to grow, and hopes to grow  with it. To do this, it needs the  active support of the community,  in order to in turn forward the  development of the area.  We do no ask support as ��� a  favor, but vIike any other community service, from hardwares  to chimney cleaners, from carpenters to churches, we solicit your  business and give value even as  they do. Often it is not a value  that can be wrapped up and handed over the counter, sometimes  it is.  If you like CHUB as a service,  and wish to keep it and have it  improve, remember the active  part Coast.t News is playing, without charge, and help us to help  CHUB.  i  Memorial I  Observance Services  From Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour!, (on.
