Mr. Percy Wright, the former Social Credit member for  this riding, had resigned and  became Mr. Gunderson's campaign manager.  v There will be ia further count  of ballots on Thursday, when the  votes of electors in hospitals,  and the advance polls, will be  added ito the total'-count, an  addition] of approximately three  hundred.  An interesting sidelight to  this by-election was the reported  appearance of two staunch  Social Credit members who ap-  pared .to guard the ballot boxes,  then in charge of the Returning  officer and his deputy.  Gibsons library  Proves Popular  . The Library in Gibsons, at  Dick McKibbin's Office, reports  a great increase in books being  drawny over the past month.  When in a two hour period over  seventy books are ^drawn, $&&  Librarians feel encouraged.  In the future, the ^library will  be open from,two %o four onj  Saturday and Tuesday afternoons. ..-?������  Junior readers are invited to  call oni Saturdays to look over  (the new book selection. A fee  of fifty cents provides membership in the Library Association  and reading piuvileges for the  whole family for a year.  Miss A. Jervis and Miss G,  Dobie are custodians, with Coral  Benn and Karen Madsen assisting on Saturdays.  im Mr: saiiaroi    rorrjie  m  Mr. Gaglardi suggested that  Mr. Black, the Provincial Secretary, be contacted. Mrs. Gestry  interposed at this point the comment that the whole structure of  VON iGrants was being revamped.  Mr. Rudolph stated that with  200 families^at Port Mellon, and  an additional 23 coming in with  the new plant expansion and  booming grounds being opened,  the added burlden for the Nurse  in this district made the work  very heavy. His feeling is that  the district would be greatly  helped by Mr. Gaglardi going into the matter too.  Mr. Boucher rose in support of  Mr. Sutherland also, quoting the  fact that so far the annual expenditure for the VON operation  was $6000, the Government paying a paltry grant of about $300.  towards this.  The Minister said he would be  happy to use what influence he  had,, and said that any letters  asking for information would be  promptly answered.  H. E. Wilson of Gibsons spoke  of the VON, and mentioned that  these:'>figj_rjes; on operational costs  did. not include such emergencies  as pur(Bhasev'';'^fy-'a";'iiewv:^ar,.. and  described the <iifficulties of raising money. He also commented  on the work being done, which  in many cases would be normally  hospital work. Since there is no  hospital, and this saving is to the  Government, the Grant might  well'Jbe increased.  Minister _!IUitk~- Such, (|��robleiiis  <^ood for Local .Citizens    ,.,..  Mr. Gaglardi. felt that it was  all to the good that local people  ���should-,, be' kept interested, and  thought it was! a tragedy that too  much of local problems should go  into governmental control. He  commended the citizens for their  work in sustaining the VON organization in the area.

Card Parties  To Be Held At Secheft  The Altar Society of the Holy  Name Parish hold the 'first of  a series of card parties at tlie  home of Mrs. Leo Johnson, on  Wednesday, Nov. 25th. There  will be frequent such social  gatherings. at the homes of the  ���m embers of the Society during  the winter months.  The same group has started a  library, which is being housed  at Mris. Leon Nadeau's home. "  eeti  The Speaker of B.C.'s Legislature, Mr. Tom Irwin, addressed !  ���a small but vocally enthusiastic meeting at Gibsons, on Tuesday  evening, November 24th. C. Oviatt of Gibsons was in the chadr, ancl -  introduced Mr. Irwin to the audience, some of whom had drivera-  from Half Moon Bay, in spite of the rough night.  Mr. Irwin spoke at length on  the meaning of Social Credit.  He explained that it was a system which embraced people  from all walks of life, every  activity, every religious, financial and industrial group in the  country.  He traced the various forms  of Government in the English-  speaking world, from before the  days of the Magna Carta, stating  that frbhi the beginning of time,  in the very nature of the formation of political parties, each of  them had represented essentially  one  group or class  of people,  .such as Conservatives originally  represented ��� the moneyed or  ruling groups, the (now) CCF  represented industrial Unionists;  and   the   Labour   parties   the  -working  people themselves.  He traced the development of  the Social Credit principiles  from   the  development  of  the  ; Douglas Theory to the present!  dayyij^deas and ideals.  '���*& His talk was received with  interest, and was heartily applauded.  The question period was lively.  Questions regarding financing  of, and grants to the VON were  asked   by> both Mr*- j-njfr IV-rs; ���*  - Ratchey,- whbiO^  in this area. Mr. T^Wi^' d^scrihh  topics touched upon, before fr_5?  meeting,closed with the servingT^  of refreshments.  Sechelt PTA  To Sponsor Concert  This year,  the Sechelt PTA-  are sponsoring the "Choraliers"  in their presentation of a concert -  in the Legion Hall on Sunday, .  December 6th. Tickets are being:  sold in advance by members o_c*  the PTA for this event, to f*s&> -  ther the activities of this active^  organization.

He suggested that since so many: differences in circumstances existed, it might J>e wise not to ask  the Government for a stipulated  sum for each VON? but for a  rate per visit, so that an area  which required much service  would then. be in receipt of  larger grants. This he put merely  as a suggestion.  When asked by Mr. Rees about  the distribution of wealth, and  what.would likely occur should  there- be a depressioniy at -/some  ; futurey date/:".Mr. -Irwin "stated  that these matters could not be  controlled within a Province  alone, but must be met from  Ottawa. , <  Iri regard to Hospital Insu-  jcancte preVniums, the Speaker  felt that there should be some  other means of collecting these.  For those whose premiums were  collectible by pay-roll deductions, the system worked well.  There were however, too many  people not in this group whose  premiums were not paid.  SUGGESTS 2 CENT TAX  Mr. Irwin suggested that an  additional tax, say two cents,  might be added to the three  cents now in effect, to make up  the required Hospital Revenue.  It would be paid by everyone  and all would pay alike.  There was much opposition to  this. Those of low income groups  and pensioners were already  having a difficult time to live,  without having everything they  purchased cost still more.  Mr. Irwin agreed, too, that this  might not be practicable. There  must be some form of exemption  for all of low income groups, hg  thought. The plan was a complicated one, and the Social Credit  Government was working to  make a just solution.  There were several other miner  Roberts Creek P-M  Discuss Curriculum  The discussion started and leiSt-  unfinished by reason of the time:  element at the October meting:,  of the PTA was continued last-  Wednesday. Two members of the  Junior-Senior High School staff-,.  Mrs. Day and Mr. Peers were^  guests. Mr. Russell and Mrss:-  Blake of the Roberts Cr_e&-  School, were also present. Mr4i-  .F. Haslam acted as moderator;-  , Questions, answers and discussion of curriculum, hon_e-  , training, discipline, morals andl  so on combined to make a lively  and interesting evening1, witfe  teachers and parents contributing equally.  During the business meeting;  which preceded the programnie-  a resolution was formed to write ���  to the Gibsons and Sechelt.  Boards of Trade requesting their  support in curbing the sale of -  liquor cigarettes and - porncv-  graphic material to minors..  Mrs. D. Blake reported on> the-?

Here we have an expanding community, increasing  traffic, and an expanding system of Highways and secondary  roads on ithe -Peninsula and adjacent islands.  That roads, so called, can be permitted to exist in the state  of the Porpoise Bay road, the lower road to Roberts Creek, the  highway from Sechelt west ito Pender, the Gower Point Road,  or the Port Mellon road, to say nothing of the secondary roads  which serve the area and which ar�� tributary to the main highways, is scarecly attributable ito the fact that we are a growing  community, however.  It has been stated that one man cannot maintain with a  grader all the miles of road requiring attention in each of the ,  two areas here concerned. It was hoped that the blacktopping  of a few miles of highway would make that much more time  (available to the maintenance department for other stretches  of road. According to the Road Foreman, the addition of the  Fort Mellon Road mileage more than offsets the savngs made  by this streitch of Blacktop.  If this be so, why then is not more equipment and more  staff available ?  The Minister of Public Works admitted that the state of  the roads, the few miles he had time to coyer, was 'appalling'. ?  He was glad the car in which he was riding did not belong to  him, and that he was not driving it. What of us who must use  the highways in order to go to work daily? What of those  whose business requires constant use of these appalling roads ?  The freight and the passenger transporting companies, the  logging truckers, the travellers?  Cannot this whole disltrict continue to make its voice heard,  until, if necessary, in sheer desparation the Department of  Public Works makes construction and maintenance available  thajt1 is adequate to the needs of ithe 'Sunshine Coast'?  Protect pur children!  Muitterings are gathering strength in the matter of the  gale of material to minors that may be a contribution to deli  inquency.  Although it was not so worded, a discussion on this, matter took place at a recent Parent-Teachers' meeting in this  district.  Public opinion, if made aware of the situation, and aroused  -will do much. The purveyors of liquor, tobacca an$ 'pornographic material' to children have no consciences worth considering. They would scarcely be in the business if they had.  They have only a hand stretched out for dollars, whether these  dollars are made up of-nickels and dimes from children, or  in one reported case, of the prof it on the sale of single cigy  arettes at two cents each to children who have not the thirty-'  four cents for a package.  The sale of Liquor to minors is a matter that can be dealt  with by the proper authorities. If these proper authorities are  Tiot already aware of the situation, those who are should take  appropriate action. This is a matter which requires rather a  -different technique, but again, if there is ho profit in it the  purveyors will not run the risk.  In the matter of Pornographic material, Canada's laws  _ire fairly stringent-  Parents, teachers and friends of young children must take  action. They cannot expect the RCMP to be all seeing and all  knowing.  In other areas, the sale of these objectionable items to  children has grown into something still more serious. The sale  of drugs to youngsters has made news headlines, articles  and editorials for several years. It has also increased police  vigilance.  Let us not permit this small bu(fa growing evil to become,,  more serious. Those who are known to sell tobacco, liquor or  other material which contributes harm of a serious nature to  children may easily be made aware of the attiit_.de of a community.  See that such objectionable characters make no profit  from your children. Sterner action we leave to interested  parents; .    .     ���  F. E.

During this past year, Canada took new strides forward  in almost every field of endeavor. These strides toward the future  were made possible through an investment ��� by Canadians in ��h  walks of life -���of time, talent ... and money. ';/%y;  How important a part your money played in Canada's progress in  1953 can be seen from the following highlights taken from the  Bof M's Annual Report for this year. Printed here, these figures  ��� as they did all through 1953 ��� speak louder than words.  .DEPOSITS: At the end of the Bank's year, October 31st,  1953, over, two million Canadians had $2,226,960,333 in  deposits with the B of M ��� money which has been kept  hard at work with Canadian enterprise of every description  and size. Although much of this money belongs to institutions and business firms, well over half of these deposits  represent the savings of everyday Canadians ��� savings that,  day by day, are working for you ... and for Canada.  LOANS: Your bank is playing an important role in our  expanding economy by means of loans to Canadians of  every calling ��� farmers, miners, fishermen, oil men, lumbermen, ranchers ��� to individual and business enterprises  and to Provincial yand Municipal Governments. As of  October 3|st,-B of'M loans totalled $857,762,561 ��� the  highest figure in the history of the. .Bank. In a thousand  ways, these dollars played their part'in maintaining full  employment and in sustaining��� or bettering ��� our  standard of living.  INVESTMENTS: At the close of the year the B of M had  $864,057,948 invested in high-grade government \bonds  and other public securities which have a ready market. This  money is helping to finance government projects for the  betterment of the country and the welfare of Canadians  at large. Other securities held by the Bank���mainly  short-term credits to industry ��� bring total investments  to 1982,490,826.  t'  The message .these figures express is a confident and encouraging one. Actually, it is your  message.. .for it is madepossible by your savings.  6  IB  Bankot Montreal  working with Canadians in every walk of life since 1817  9    . ,�� *  ��   @  _   �� PTSggaaa����a��sa������m����s^^ ���"- -  oberts Creek  ound-up  by Madge Newman  Meteorologist Makes Music  Mug-up time at Badminton  last week became exciting when  a�� desultary discussion anentj  coffee-rnakkig, turkey shoots  -and so on centered on the fine  art of weather prophecy.

She  lived for nine years in Wyoming  v__a_ spent her  high  school  days  y__s Wisconsin.  1928, through mud and snow,  !^_eund her in a Model-T for three  ^weeks on her way to Canada.  ~Mr&.   Day   took   her   teacher's  "iaraaning   in   Edmonton,   attended  _tse "Universities  of   Alberta   and  ^British   Columbia,   and  took   the  v._-��e_t  of   her   training   by   corres-  v3_mdence from Queen's.  The first school she taught was  fifty-two miles from steel, and  the rest of the way was covered  __a horseback, while her luggage  _n_x_ped along her side on a pack  ,_u_r_e.  After, her initiation Jto teaching:, Mrs. Day, went North for  fonrteen years, north of Atha-  -Staska, Lac La Biche, and the  .Fence   River  countries.  Then in 1948 back she came to  British  Columbia     and    Gibsons  where   we   hope  she'll . settle  for  :���_* good long time.  40-DSDS *N' ENDS  By Pat Peterson  We had a tough time getting  -anything  out  of  the  subject,  so  -we can't be held  responsible for  ,_my facts not quite true.  Arthur (he won't say) Thomson, was born in Alberta, some  seventeen years ago, and came to  <__.r occasionally fair peninsula  __'l947.  ISvidence of Art's talent can be  _ee_r all over the school, from the  ���sgjowcase' to   the   parking   signs,  ��utside the school. In the various  Trooms Art's work  appears under  the   names   of   those   individuals  who are not fortunate enough to  "___*_   Artmus's   artistic   leanings.  "__* lias crucified the good names  <__. some   of  the  famous   historic  figures but they would probably  f&ave  a  good  chuckle  or  two   in  their graves if they read any of  .Art's  masterpieces.  He really likes doing this extra  -work and, sometimes it seems he  oomes to school just to get more  -oi it.  After graduation Art hopes to  gag*  more   instruction   in   his   art  assd he  certainly  seems  to   have  the talent to go far.  Let's  hope so!  ...3UN10R BOYS' SPORTS  . By George Slinn  There   has   been   three   junior  'i&oys'   basketball     practices     this  s_^��cs?on.   The  first  was  some  two  creeks away, with a record num-  _*er of thirty-six boys turning out.  The   second   practice,   Mr.   Clark  -was having just as much trouble  trying to decide who was who and  -where.  This last practice though, he  Sound his way and the results are  tas follows: John Glassford, Captain; Mike Whitaker and Richard Luoma, vice-captains; Ron  Brown, Bill Nimmo, Lome Mc-  IStihan, Ray Nestman; Don Mac-  '._>__. aid, Bruce Steiiibruner, and  nnyself vwhen I'm able (George  ySlinn).  ~We hope to have an excellent  ^feKiia this year. All we need now  ���state some games.  GENERAL  NEWS  Reports say that Mr. Trueman  is doing very well.  With all our pleas and urges,  we didn't have the crowd we  needed at "Macbeth" performance by the Lancaster Company.  The majority of the students  would like them back for another  performance.  Our cheerleading section has  been established with Lynne Mad-  sen, Dodie Farnham, Ruth Brum-  bah, and Betty-Jane Wood as  steadies, and Eleanor Powell and  Marie Henry as spares. The first  attack to be made on the public  will be this Friday, at a game  between Gibson's Cougars and  North  Vancouver.  The Student's Council carried  out the girls' wishes to change  the school ring. It is now decorated with black and yellow enamel, they also have samples of  the  school  sweater.  After the Grade Eleven skit  on Friday the 20th, a mixer was  held in the gym. The juniors  turned out in abundance, but the  seniors weren't quite so well represented. A mixer with food  seems more popular, but on the  whole they are all enjoyed.  DON'T WE HAVE FUN?  By  Annette  Marleau  I heard just yesterday where  the radio announcer said, "Doesn't it seem that right on the  heels f of Hallowe'en's last skyrocket comes Santa's reindeer?"  and by cracky* I think: that could  well apply. Christmas displays,  lay-away plans for gifts, Christmas cards, (even ~* Christmas  Carols), and the worry of all as  to where the extra scratch will  come from to buy the gifts.  That's the warm up. Then  comes the music, laughter, and  careless spending, (summed up  as the Christmas mood), then  comes the giving and receiving  and over-eating (summed up as  Christmas Cheer), and last and  most'remembered, skimpy living  for the next two months, . (summed up as A Happy New Year!)  Detailed Information  Telegram from Coast News to  the Hon. Mr. Gaglardi, Minister  of Public. Works, Victoria, Nov.  17th:  As agreed, further to Monday's  questions at Gibsons: Has your  Department formally taken over  Port Mellon Road? Has the 15  percent been paid Marwell?

Although the maintenance of  this road has now been taken over  by the Department, the final Estimate has not been paid to the  Contractor, and therefore his retention has not been  released. �����.

At $787 million, commercial  and other loans show an increase  of 18.6 per cent over the 1952  figure, reflecting a record demand for credit by B. of M  customers in their expanding  operations.  Notwithstanding the heavy-  increase in the demand for credit, the bank's traditionally high  liquid position has been maintained, with quick assets at  $1,513 million equal to 66.75 per  cent of all its liabilities to the :  public. Cash assets alone run to  20.31 per cent.  In line with the enlarged credit needs of its customers, the  bank's holdings of government  Bnd other public securities at  $864 million are less than the  1952 figure to the extent of  more than a hundred million1  dollars. Other bonds, debentures  -and stofcks are approximatelyy  the same at $118 million^y.i'y y'y  Deposits At Record High.  Deposits increased during the  year by $79 million to reach a  new peak at $2,226,960:006,  representing the: funds of two  million customers.  The bank's total resources at  $2,364,374,00(1   marking  a  mew  record,- exceed  its liabilities to  the  public  by   $96,765,000.' An  Important ;enlargement   in   the  shareholders' funds is revealed  in ah increase in the rest or reserve fund from $53 million to  $60 million. Besides a  transfer  to   this account of two  million  dollars from the profit and loss  account,   it: is   understood; that  ia sum of five niillion dollars has  been added to the rest account  from   the   contingency  reserve  representing   special   funds   accumulated from refundable taxes and other sources.  Earnings And Taxes Higher  Earnings for the year after  provision has been made���-for a  tax-bill of $6,650,000, up from  $5,918,000 in 1952, amount to  $7,042,676;: compared with $5,  668,778 a year ago. Dividend  payments to the shareholders  pre $5,040,000, representing a  return of 5.21 per cent on their  funds. This compares with 5:01  in 1952 and 4.87 in 1951.  After   the:  payment   of   divi:^  dends   to   Shareholders   and   a ���  transfer of .'two million  dollars  to the rest account, the balance  in the profit and loss account at  October 3ill stood at $705,536.  b:/*?_____  MAKE  EARLY APPOINTMENTS}.
