She was eighty years  of age. I  Mrs. Beck is survived by two  sons, William and Wilfred, and  one daughter, Mrs. Dorothy Mac-  Kay,' all of Vancouver.  For the last number of years,  Mrs. Beck has been faithfully  cared for by Mrs. Margaret  Scott, at Porpoise Bay.  The funeral, arrangements for  which were entirely handled by  the W.

Sechelt Boy  Has Narrow Escape  Lannie Chamberlain, aged 10  years, son of the Les Chamberlains, rescued Ray Rankin, age  6; years, son of Mrs. Margaret  Rankin, w-ien - he fell into Mission Creek. These boys with  Richard Gray, son of the Dick,  Grays, were walking on the  stones at the mouth of the  creek. Ray, who cannot swim,  slipped, fell in, and was being  swept down to the sea. Lannie,-  who can swim, jumped in,  grabbed Ray's collar and in spite  of deep water and the strong  current, towed him to shore.  Neither boy suffered  any ill  j6j_ A J? _._* ��� 1  eziecLS xiOni hue experieiJics, oe-  yond being frightened. Needless  to say, their parents ' were relieved the accident was not more  serious.  D. Macklam, .Mr. Bancroft of  Port Mellon, and Mr. Boucher,  of Gibsons were the guest list.  New members who were introi,  duced were E. Elander, G.  Hammond, W. Peterson, and N.  Hough.  Various reports were received  from the committees represented^ The misunderstanding over  the sal^of timz:bn gB&B> and  the 'dependence of the program  upon it, was cleared up by the  liasori committee. r , ,  Correspondence with the Forestry Department on Forestry  Campsites is to be repeated.  CHUB was commended for its  opening programs on the Sun  shine Coast. The Coast News  provisidn .of community news  items was remarked upon and  appreciated.  There was a brief discussion  of the idea of a Gibsons Community Hall. This matter will  be further discussed by the executive,  and brought up  again.  The Board went on record as  supporting the sending of a delegate to Victoria on VON matters, and suggested that Mr.  Ritchey would be a good delegate. The Board offered to contribute $15.00 towards the expenses of such a delegate.  1 Mr. Boucser spoke on the  meeting with Mr. Gaglardi,  earlier in the day, and the trip  to Port Mellon. He quoted Mr.  dition of the road 'appalling',  and that 'he would see that the  road was put ,in proper condition and maintained'.  Powell River Board of Trade  has been asked to join the joint  Boards of Trade Committee.  Disposal of funds from the  Salmon Derby account was discussed. These funds will be  turned over in the correctly legal manner to the General Funds.  The lieach Funds will be turned  over to general funds, but will  be earmarked for improvement  of beach and/or swimming and  diving facilities.  At this point, Mr. Norman  MacKenzie, of the High School,  acted as projectionist, to show  the films on the fishing industry, and the measures that are  being taken fotr conservation.  The life cycle of the salmon  the installations at Hells Gate,  and similar aspects of the Industry were well and entertainingly shown.  parsing in mmn  Blocking off Stores  Now, the local "Scotch Express" is operating and a good  many people are coming to  Sechelt to shop, it might be well  for merchants and residents who  drive cars, to check upon their  parking habits.  The average pedestrian finds  it difficult to enter the local  stores and business premises.  Car drivers have fallen into the  habit of parking as close to the  doors of the business firms as  possible.  At the Union Store;cars park  practically on the cement slab.  Tuesdays and Thursdays, when  the bank is open, car drivers  endeavour to park orii the verandah of the banki 'Maybe, the  manager should institute a drive-  in service. 1  At the Village; fCfentre, the  bumpers, of many of the cars  overhang the sidewalk. Pedestrians, unless rather agile, find  it difficult o clamber- over the  cars to enter a store; It would,  be nice, if the car drivers would  leave a little space,, for those  hardy souls who still practice  the art of picking 'em up and  laying 'em down.  Francis Bolton  Passes Away  A well known old-time resident of Hopkins Larwjling, Mr.  Francis. W.T. Bottom,, dieji in  Vancouver last Tuesday, November 10th.  He "is survived by his wife,  Rose Blanche, and one son,  Francis p. Bolton, with the Department of National Defence  in Chilliwack.  For ten years of his residence  in these parts, Mr. Bolton lived  on Keats Island. Funeral services  were held in Vancouver on Sat-  urdty, November 14th.  Hunter Shot  At Half Moon Bay  Mr. Thomas Didorak of Vancouver suffered a serious chest  wound, when he was struck by  a bullet from the rifle of his son-  in-law, William B. Clarke, of the  Vancouver City Police force.  Mr. Didorak and Mr. Clarke,  both of Vancouver, were up on  a hunting trip from Vancouver,  and had camped, contrary to  posted signs, and notices in the  property of the Rotter Logging  Company at Half Moon Bay.  About xnree o'clock in the  afternoon of Tuesday, November  17th, the accident occurred, Mr.'  Clarke, it is reported, having  shot at what he thought was a  deer. ^ _  He Heard a machine operating  near by, and went for help. The  crew of the, machine, Mr. Low,  Bob Ford, Doug Lister and  Bruce Low carried Didorak by  stretcher from the woods. In  the meantime, one of the crew  had notified Mrs. Willis at her  home, and she in turn called Dr.  McColl and Cpl. Cummings from  Bechelt. Dr. McColl rendered  Immediate asslstancei; and accompanied the <wojunded man  to Sechelt in one of the Rotter  Logging Company Trucks, then  came through with him to Gibson,-?, where he was tranferred  to Graham's Ambulance and removed to St. Paul's Hospital.  The  Hon.   Gaglardi  ensnsuga  Kepresentatives  The Hon. Gaglardi, Minister of Public Works, met with local;"  representatives from the Sechelt Peninsula on Monday, and. discussed local problems and answered questions.  Mr. Gaglardi was accompanied by Mr. Chris Jorgensorx oC  Gibsons, Mrs. Gestry of Powell River, Mr. Norman Rudolph __��  Port Mellon. He was met at the wharf by Mr. Harold Wilson o��  Totem Realty, Gibsons, and Mr. Wm. Sutherland for the Howe*  Sound Farmers' Institute, Mr. Merrill of Davis Bay, and Mr. Cooper'  of Redrooffs.  Meeting With  Commissioners  At ten o'clock, Mr. Gaglardi  met with two of the Village  Commissioners, Mr. Boucher and  Mr. Drummond, at the Municipal Hall. Mr. R. Burns.was on  hand with maps and correspondence. '.'..:���.'  The problem of the. Gower  Road, and the traffic problem  caused by cars for the ferry was  presented and discussed. Locations were shown on a map of  the village, and it was explained  that during 1952-1953, over  $5000.00 above the net tax income for this area had been  spent on this section of the Gower Road.  Mr. Drummond .oulined the  situation, and recalled Mr. Gag-  lardi's letter on the matter  referring to the Winn road, and  a projected expenditure of $22,  000 there. Mr. Boucher explained the main features of the  Fletcher road plan that had been  : suggested, the difficulty of  .widening it-, and contrasted with  .that the plan for the Gower  Road   which   can   be  widened  tine.  Mr. Norman Rudolph took, the?  ch.'.ir for  this meening. It wast  brief,    and    the   salient   points  brought   up   by   the   delegates?'  were done by direct and succiafc-  question.ings.  Mr.   Cboper   from   Redrooffs  without- ;the ��� necessity -of. pur-.,: represented Half^ Moon Bay,pA  chasing private property.  Mr. Gaglardi wished to know  what would be the result of the  Powell River traffic and the  Port Mellon Traffic being added  to the present stream. The commissioners stated that this was  what was causing so much concern.  Wishes To See Roads  Mr. Gaglardi then asked to be  shown the actual roads in question. This was done. Commissioner J. Schutz was added to  the party, as it was driven over  the Gower Road. At this point,  Mr. Gaglardi asked who was  responsible for the maintenance  of that stretch. He was informed  that it was a joint proposition  between the Village and the  Province. The Government had  taken it over, spent $3500 on  it, and turned it back again to  the Village. The commission  feels that it should be an arterial  highway.  v From the Gower Road, the  party was driven over the Pratt  Road, and down the Sechelt  Highway.. It was shown how the  schools, churches, and two halls  all tended to cause great traffic  congestion at this point. From  there, they went down the 'cut  off' to which Mr. Gaglardi  raised objections because of the  seep grade, as he did to the  Rocky Road.  He felt, that the Government  could not just take over municipal roads at random and make  highways of them. It would be  setting a precedent. Neither  could they indiscriminately give  out. several thousands of dollars  .in road assistance, for the same  reason. He did, however, readily  ndmit that there was a serious  problem to be met, end agreed'  to give the matter immediate  consideration.  Meeting -With Representative-*  . The representatives from the  various narts of the district were  fathered  in   Bal's   Hall,   loaned  for the occasion by Mr. Ballen-  spoke in behalf%f^^n_:er Har_r  hour also.

Half Moon Bay cut-off, stating:'  that two and a half months _��_"��-���  clearing had been completed- He  asked when the road would, be ���-  made passable, and how much:  had been alloted to the scheme?  Mr. Gaglardi replied that tare?  B.C.    Power    Commission   I_a*<_?  asked for  $16,000 to clear"Hie;  right of   way   for   their  powexr  lines.This was an odd situafionv  because    the    Dept.    of   Public:  Works does not make~a practice,  of clearing rights of way for the*  Power    Commission.    Since    it-'  might eventually become a roadway, however, the Government,  had   acqu_e��iceo5.   The   slashing  had been completed. He was not  aware that there was still three  and. a half miles of road yet iov  be done.  Mr Cooper outlined the worfc.  urgently    needing    completiorL..  Stated  that  the work that ha<f��  been done was that part o�� tlier:  cut-off unoccupied by residents.  Seventy people lived where tiaes;r  would be served by the remain--  ing three and a half miles- andLy  three   hundred   lots   had   ire_s_..-  sold. iy\  Mr. Gaglardi  said again   -bat'.  it was not the responsibility of:  his  department  to  build   ^toter-  roads" for the Power Commls--  sion, and felt the responsibility^  was not that of the Department.  However, the work was done fey  serve the community. He asl-edJ  for a letter outlining the- sittea--  tion, and promised to loafer ih_3->  the matter.

Dear  Mrs.   Wortman,  Through the good offices of  Mrs. V. Rookes I have received  information of the fascinating  industry connected with the manufacture of textiles, etc. from  Peanut  Kernels.  Special interest was shown in  the Weaving Section at our Fair  in the unique display of fibre and  manufactured samples set up "by  Mrs. Rookes. I am certain that  the members of the Fair Committee would wish you to have  the enclosed write-up, and would  be glad to have this opportunity  of again showing their appreciation for the keen interest that  Mrs. Rookes and the other ladies  take in the Weaving Section of  our Annual Fair.  While they are ever mindful  of an appealing atmosphere with  old time quaintness, they also aim  for presentations of up-to-date  ideas.  You will notice the write-up is  themed on the  latter thought.  Yours very truly,  Howe Sound Fair Committee  M. LeFeuvre, Secretary.  The Weekly Newspapers Convention which we were fortunate enough to attend, gave us many a new idea, and many  a different slant on the problems common to all weeklies, and  many a new idea of how to meet some of them, particularly in  'the line of service to the Community. We hope to be able to put  a number of them into practice very soon.  Besides which, we were treated royally by all the firms   and businesses with whom we come much info contact; The  B.C. Telephones, the B.C. Electric, the Advertising Agencies,    A r fill   PrAffliil   Cihrfl  the Western Pulp\and Paper, the Fine Papers and the Ink, and    III UIl   II UlBIll   161116  Inlj: and Roller firms (of all this more elsewhere) really did  entertain us pleasantly. Naturally old contacts were freshened,  and new ones made. This will all show benefit to both the  Newspaper and the Community in some form.  ���IT'S EVOLUTION  We had the opportunity to mention Gibsons in a number  of situations, and did our little best to wave the whole Sunshine Coast flag on quite a number of occasions.  We were happy to meet friends who new parts of the Coast  from Pender to Port Mellon, and who were very interested in  its development. To those who didn't know it, we found ourselves becoming positively lyrical.  Halfmoon  Beams  by Florence Cormack  Jackpot' Winner  Who says nothing exciting ever  happens here. Well, it's history  now, Mrs. Tony Tschaikowski,  "Pete" to her friends, won the  CKWX Casino Jackpot last  week, amounting to $3530. Good  for you "Pete". We are all happy  for you.  Fire In Lighting Plant  The Frank DiPumas of Half  Moon Bay are thanking the pow-  ers-that-be and many good  neighbors that they still have  a home intact. Last week a fire  broke out in the shed that houses  their lighting plant. The fire  would soon have spread to the  adjoining house had not all their  good neighbors come to their  assistance arid got it under control. Mary and Frank are very  grateful to them for their timely  help.  Personals  The DiPumas were surprised  for a second time last week but  this time very pleasantly, when  Frank's sister and her husband,  Mr. and Mrs. Joe Fiamelli arrived by car for an extended  visit. They are from the Di-  Puma's old home town, Hamilton, Ontario. They will return  home after a few weeks visit via  points in" California.  Mr. and Mrs. HE. Hunt of  Vancouver are enjoying a short  vacation at their Redrooffs summer home.  A pleasant luncheon meeting  of the local VON Auxiliary was  held at the home of Mrs. A.  Menzies of Welcome Beach last  week.  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Blackwell  of Vancouver paid a brief visit  last week to Mrs. B. Barley of  Seacrest.  Don Ross  of Vancouver  was  up last week to do some more  work on.his summer cottage at.  Redrooffs.  Mr. Lloyd MacDougal has  come from Vancouver Island to  visit, his mother, Mrs. P. Meuse  of Half Moon Bay.  Mr. and Mrs. H. Allen of West  Vancouver are back again at  their summer place at Seacrest.,  They intend to stay for a while  this time especially if this balmy  weather continues and they can  give their "Rotiller" a good  workout.  Mr. and Mrs. H.R. Pearce of  Recfrooffis went to Vancouver  this week to see the Sadler-  Wells Ballet,     c  Mr.   George  Nairn  weekending   at  hils   Redrooffs   summer  home last week.  Mr. H. Nelson of Halfmoon  Bay was home on a visit to his  family last week. He has been.  in the Pearson TMemorial Hospital in Vancouver for a while  and has returned there to undergo an operation. We hope he will  soon, be home again and ire-  stored to health.

For many years the Nobel Division of the Imperial Chemical  Industries of Britain has been interested in Fibre development,  and about 1945 results, through  research, were so encouraging  that a full scale plant was built  in Dumfries, South Scotland,  Unlike Rayon, which is allied  to cotton, and is a regeneration  of wood or cotton cellulose,  "Ardil" is a regenerative protein?  fibre resembling the natural protein, wool. It fulfils a long felt  want for a man made textile  staple fibre that has the particular advantage of possessing the  natural warmth and handle of  wool.  The raw material for "Ardil"  Fibre is the kernel of the groundnut���Arachis hypoaea L.���more  commonly known as Peanuts. Although the nuts ripen underground they are not attached to  the roots. The yellow flowers, after self-fertilization, wither and  bend down to the ground. Needle  like shoots carrying the ovary  then emerge and penetrate about  two inches into the ground. On  the end of each shoot there develops a single pod which contains the groundnuts.  The shells���which play no part  in the manufacture of "Ardil"  Fibre���are usually removed before the nuts .are shipped from  West Africa to Scotland.  The nuts, with the shells removed, form the raw material for  the manufacture of "Ardil" fibre.  "Ardil" fibre is made thus���  blanching���the removal of the  skin from the groundnut kernel.  The oil is then pressed out���this  valuable oil is sold to the foodstuffs' industry. The remaining  groundnut meal contains proteins  and carbohydrates, is treated with  alkalis and protein is extracted.  .This solution passes through  fine spinnerets into an acid coagulating bath where it solidifies  into filaments. These are processed, washed and after drying  utilized in the form of staple  fibre. The meal remaining after  extraction process contains carbohydrates and some protein and  is dried to form valuable cattle  feed. .  Ardil protein fibre being closely related to wool in chemical  composition possesses many of  the properties of the natural  fibre, but it also has 'some attractiveness of''-its.'own. A wide  range of woollen and worsted  piece goods, including, suitings.,;  dress material, hosiery fabrics,  blankets, carpets, felts, can be ���  manufactured using Ardil fibre-  wool yarn containing up to 50  percent Ardil fibre.  Re Liquor licenses  The four types of Licenses that  may be issued by the Province  are of interest as are the likely  qualifications  to  be   imposed.  First, a "Public House License"  which will be issued to hotels  and resorts that comply with  standards to be set by the board.  It may also be sold to establishments that do no supply lodging.  Beer, ale and stout may be sold  for consumption on or off the  premises.  Second: a "Dining Room License" will be issued to 'selected  restaurants and hotels' and will  permit the sale of wines, beer,  ale and stout with meals.  Third: a "Dining-Lounge License," which is the same as a  dining room license, except that  it allows for the sale of "hard  liquor". It will be confined largely to cabarets.  Fourth: "Lounge License" will  allow the sale of liquor of all  kinds in suitable premises, even  though meals are not served. "It  may only.be given to hotels, resorts, railway cars' and steamships."  Ed's Note: There is a peculiar  clause in the B.C. Government  news regarding this business of  liquor sales. A certain 'monopoly  tax' will be paid by one selling^  a license, to be fixed at the time  of transfer, and based upon the  amount of liquor purchased by  the   licensee   during   the   twelve  Sechelt  Hook & Ladder  Following two recent outbreaks of fire the residents of  Sechelt have, become fire conscious.  Here  are  some  vital   truths  which every householder should  know.   Various different  toxic  gases are produced by the burning of clothing and house furnishings. Silk, wool, cotton, rayon  leather,   plastics;  rubber,  insulation even newspapers will set  them up particularly in attics,  basements or closets. The most  familiar   is  Carbon Monoxide.'  which is always present in some  degree in burning material but  there will also be quantities of  such vapors as hydrocyanic gas  and   hydrogen    sulphide,    both  more deadly than carbon mon.  .oxide,  and  ammonia  which  is  jalso lethal.  As the deadly portions of  these gases are practically odorless your nose does not know  when smoke is dangerous. Both  carbon monoxide and hydrogen  sulphide, however, give warning with a headache.  Another article on the dangers  of smoke and the gases generated will follow shortly, but in  the meantime if there, is a  smoky atmosphere in the house  and you get even a slight headache: GET OUT. W.W.  Sechelt Theatre  Renovated  Mr.  W.  Parsons,  operator of  Sechelt Theatre, has practically  completed  renovating the  picture show. A furnace has been  installed,   so  no matter  where  patrons are sitting they will  be warm.  Later new" seats are  to be installed. Mr. Parsons,  has also started a Country Store  Night for the Wednesday evening shows. Every adult patron  has three chances to take home  a parcel of groceries, which  should appeal to most of them,  as there are few who are not  interested in groceries  In the event of a world shortage   of   wool    and    consequently  high   prices   the   advantages    of  "Ardil" fibre will be widely appreciated in the years to come.  months preceeding the transfer.  "This impliments the recommendation of the .Stevens Commission  that 'Licensees should not benefit beyond the normal trading  profit of an average business."  This pious thought is scarcely reflected in the new forms of taxation���or Government profit���-  upon club sales!  Driftwood  By L.  S. J.  Roughly speaking, the first  driftwood in these parts has been  clocked at or about 6,000 years  B.C. This is according to the  savants that deal in such matters.  Their source of information is  the new carbon time clock and  the Geiger counter. Far be it  from me to question their findings in these probings of vast  eternities. Their evidence though,  does show that the continental  ice cap left the shoreline of the  present Gulf of Georgia about  that time." With the moss followed by shrub and then timber,  the era of driftwood, shorelines,  and tides,  is something definite.  Today these same swirling-  tides that flood the Gulf twice a  day coming in through the passes  at each end of the semi-sheltered  inland waters bring in their wake  a worthy flotsam and jetsam that  at times makes investigation  worthwhile.  My initiation into this sort of  business began in Howe Sound  many years ago picking up shingle  bolts. A small aside here to relate that when I was working as  a hard rock miner on a railway  job I used to hear of the fortunes  being made out at the coast splitting shingle bolts and the puzzlement as to how one got into the  metal business of splitting bolts.  Live and learn, boy!  Anyhow, picking up bolts one  was impressed with these acres  and acres of drift that were continually piling up year after year. j_>  I believe "both Capt. Cook and  the >��� early -exploring' Spaniards  both mention this phenomena in  their records. Most of this drift  comes down the coastal rivers  aided by landslides in the countless inlets on the coast. There has  been record of where complete  timber limits have slid into the  water in recent times.  The lower reaches of the Gulf  gets  most of its  driftwood  from  the    Fraser   and   the   Squamish,  this   last,   a   real   raging  torrent  at   times.     This   debris   is   most  noticeable  in   spring     with     the  melting   snow   freshets   and   the  fall when the heavy rain sets in.  Anything coming from these two  rivers   is   pushed   northward   by  the  flood   tide  and  consequently  is   caught  on   some     beach   and  when the tide changes to ebh is  left   high   and   dry.   Strange   objects   come   down   the   rivers  besides the cottonwood,  birch, and  alder,   which  are  most   common.  In the recent floods on the Fraser  we had lumber of all kinds, also  the  odd cow,  pig,  and  chickens.  The    most    tragic    flood    was  winter  1919-20   when  there  had  been  a  heavy   fall  of   snow  followed by warm rains oh the high  levels.     All   the   coastal   creeks  were   raging  torrents    and     the  dams   at   Brittannia   mine   were  washed  out,   to   bring a  wall  of  water   through   the   village  with  tragic suddeness and push many "  of the houses with the occupants  into  the  sea.   The  next  morning  Howe Sound was a" mass of trees  logs, shingle bolts, and worst of  all,   the  occasional     house     still  more or less in one piece. These  had   to   be   investigated   in.   case  there  were  still some victims.  In the main however the wood  industry is  responsible  for  most  of the debris on the. beaches. Up      l.  to the recent fracas in Europe it  was customary to push anything      y  you had no use for out into  the  chuck.  Cull  logs;  trash, slabs,  it  was all got rid of; in the easiest       ;  manner. Today, it is a great' deal  better,  and  we  shall; not  see   it  change unless we have some sort  of economic upheaval. Gower  eanin&s  by Gypsy Towers  A very bright spot in a dour  damp week was the Saturday  night party and dance given by  Mr. and Mrs. Will Bow at  Stronlochie.

He  stated that the road was "rough,  narrow, and very winding" That  it was not likely to serve the  additional load very well.  Mr. Gaglardi said this had not  been brought up for approval.  That much would depend upon  how much added traffic there  was, that eventually all the  roads will have to be improved.  Mr. Locke Knowles, speaking  for the Gibsons area spoke of  the road which connects the  black-topped highway leaving  Gibsons with the new Port Mellon Road, described,it as narrow,  winding -and -unsafe. -Approximately four miles of this road  serves not only Granthams Landing, Hopkins Landing and the  intervening stretches,. but must  carry the Port Mellon traffic  also. -.   ' .  His second question referred  to the use of local machines and  equipment. Could the Department recommend that local  equipment where suitable should  be used in road work?  Mr. Gaglardi said as to the  Road, this would doubtless be  cared for in the process of time.  With rgard to the employment  of local machines, the Department always recommended that  it be used where practicable.  That the cost was not always in  line, and with the 23,000 miles  of highway in the Province,  economy .was always necessary.  Regarding the Port Mellon  Road, Mr. Gaglardi stated that  the Marwell Construction Company was said to have lost $80,  000 on the contract.  Mr. W. Sutherland, on behalf  of the Pender Harbour Board of  Trade, who were unable to be  present, asked when and if the  Francis Peninsula Road would  be built?  The reply to this was that  there was no plan as yet, he does  �� ���  Lesion Dinner  A Haoov Occasion  On the evening of Nov. 11th  the Gibsons Legion, Branch 109  with the Ladies' Auxilliary, entertained a large crowd for dinner and an evening of fun."  The affair was managed well  and all attending have reported  enjoyment of the evening.  The djinn__ was appetizing,  plentiful and excellent. Guests  were delighted that they were  served hot dishes really HOT,  and cold dishes appropriately  cold.  The arrangement for the  wraps of the guests was thoughtful, no one. was inconvenienced.  The seating arragements and decorating of the tables, as well as  the service of the guests, were  nicely managed.  It was a matter of moments  only to convert the Legion Hall  from a dinner-room to a concert hall, through the use of  collapsible tables, and no one  had to leave the hall for the  transformation.  Those members* of the Legion  who made the event possible,  from the terrific boxing exhibition to the final tali story are  heartily congratulated for *so  successful  an affair.  ^INTERIOR  ' "t    GLOSS  Per ntcbea.  _*_ _��f_r����a .

He will be glad to have  further correspondence on this  matter.  As representative of the Howe  Sound Farmers' Institute, Mr.  Sutherland then asked if Mr.  Gaglardi knew if there was any  plan for Farm Clearing in this  area, and would this Government clear land with the idea  of development- of Agriculture  in this area?  Mr. Gaglardi said that although  this was not ini his department,  he would have it looked into.  He suggested that the Department of Agriculture would be  able to answer questions. He  asked whether any survey had  been made as to climate, soil,  moisture, etc.. Mr. Sutherland  replied that Mr. G.W.E. Clark  of the Department has known  of conditions in this area, and  is   enthusiastic.   Regarding   the  Mim. of Agriculture, Mr. Sutherland stated that owing to the-  unsettled state of the Government last year, nothing had been  done, but he had understood that  the Minister of Agriculture was  now coming to the district.

There were many points  discussed that will be of mutual  help. It is hoped these visits will  be frequent.  The Gibsons Smoke Eaters  received new coats from the  Village this week. The boys can  now keep dry, and are mighty  pleased about the whole thing.  The new 2% inch nozzle arrived some time ago, and the  hose to fit is anxiosly awaited.  When this arrives, this equip-'  ment can be effectively used on  the hydrant near the Post Office.  (A Fire Department can only be  as effective  as  its equipment).

Commissioner for  Guide training, spent two days  in Sechelt. The revival of Girl  ��?uide|s hefce was a result of  fhis visit.

The club membership has been asking that  the jamb should be removed, as  they feel it is detrimental to  the salmon spawning. No decision was made, and the matter now rests with the Fisheries  Department to decide whether  Mission Creek is important to  the salmon population.  New Censorship  The Liquor Control Board  has assumed direct control over  advertising in British Columbia  Newspapers, inserted by manufacturers and distributors of  alchoholie   beverages.  All such advertising must be  submitted to the Liquor Control  Board for approval.  The LCB also limits the size  and. content, of the advertising.  This authority was set up for  itself by the B.C. Legislature in  Section 83 of the new liquor  act.  The regular meeting was held  at the home, of Mrs. Locke  Knowles, with twelve members  in attendance. The Secretary,  Mrs. Oviatt, read a letter of  thanks to the L.A. members for  gifts presented in appreciation  of her help and interest in the  Guides and Brownies.  President Mrs. Ritchey gave  further information on the conference in Vancouver. Mrs.  Knowles read notes orn the L.A.  Report.  The Gibsons L.A. would welcome more parents and interested friends to join, and in this  way be kept informed of progress accomplished by the  Guides and Brownies. Leaders  of both these groups are voluntary, and take time out from  their own busy lives to trairt  these children towards good  citizenship. They need the community's co-operation and interest.  .

There was a change in the  method of reporting for Grade  ten this year. They are being  the "Guinea Pigs" in an experiment towards improving the reports. A lot of parents complained about the card with the  straight letter grades, too un-  reyeialing, so now they will get  "all the facts". What a thought.  The idea is a personal letter to  the parents with each teacher's  comments in bare, unrelenting,  woixls. You had better keep a  pleasant look on your face even  if you're bored to fears because  the teachers have found a perfect way to get even.  This method seems to be pretty  good though, because even the  Grade ten students themselves;  like the idea of knnowing what  they are doing wrong, or; occasionally, what ffey are doing  right.  Club News  by Henrietta Henry  Badminton reports good turnouts and a rising fund. Red Cross  has got underway on the scrap-  ibook deal. The Drama Club is  now organizing ��� number of  plays.  In Industrial Arts, the girls  are also busy,0harnmer and nails,  also turning out some very good  things. The Glee Club is still  in session but they have no plans  as of yet.  In the Hobby Club, they are  working on their aluminun and  doing very, very well.  'General News  Sadlie Hawkins Dance, was  a big success, we 'hoofed to  records, supped of coffee, pop  and doughnuts and were entertained by Marie Henry's tap  dancing routines and Coral  Benn's piano  arrangements.  Special thanks' go to our sponsors, Mrs. Evahs, Mr. Peterson,  Mr. and Mrs. Jervis, and Mr.  Clark, "marrin' sam" also special thanks to our record ghosts  and kitchen help.  Senior Boy's Sports  by Bill Nicholls  After returning from a recent  Teacher's Convention in North  Vancouver, basketball coach Mr.  J. Clark reported that he had  arranged for a senior boys and  girls game between North Vancouver High School and E'phin-  stone.  The games will be played  Friday, November 20th, at Gibsons, in the high school gym.  The girl's game is slated to start  at 7:30 p.m. and the boys will  start almost immediately after  them.  How about a big turnout for  the opener.  Junior Boy's Snorts  by George Slinn  This week there is little sports  neiws, because our boys are lacking the spirit to turn out for  house volleyball. There is, however, some games between grade  seven and eight, but the house-  games have not been played.  W. McFadden, D.O.

When one enters the west entrance of our school they find  staring them in the face, certain  posters which say "turn out for  House Games'' and when one  travels further there is seen*  more signs which have the same  basic statement. Now there  shouldn't have to be any coaxing  to turn out for the games unless  the sport is just not appreciated.  This may be the case but at  least when the basketball league  starts this column may be filled  with more interesting news.  Impressive Service  At Pender Harbour  Remembrance Day ceremonies  at Pender Harbour were marred  by blustery winds and incessant  rain.  -Despite the inclement weather  and transportation difficulties,  Harbour residents from all  points gathered in the Community Hall for the special service conduted by Rev. Canon  Alan Greene, Columbia Coast  Mission and Legion Chaplain.  Observances were organized  under sponsorship of Branch  112, Canadian Legion,  r Legion and Ladies' Auxiliary  members fell in on parade, and  marched to the Hall preceded  by the color bearers. Parade  Marshall was RSM Peter Trap-  pit, M.B.E. Color bearers were:  Capt. Wm. Kent and Mrs. Jim  Cameron.  An impressive service of special prayers and hymns was  climaxed by sounding, of the  "Last Post" by RSM Trappitt,  followed by The Silence, which  was broken by the "Reveille".  A beautiful wreath of poppies  was placed before^ the-altar by  Mrs. Len Hambly, Mrs. Cedric  Reid, President of the Ladies  Auxiliary being responsible for  making the floral tribute.  A moving address by Canon  Greene was followed by further  hymns and singing of "God Save  the Queen".  Mrs; Caryl Cameron Was the  accompanist. Ushers were Messrs Cedric Reid and Ole Kleven.  Folowing the ceremonies, all  present were entertained to  light refreshments prepared by  ladies of the Auxiliary.  don't miss a thing in  Y , '       M ���    v   "��� ���-.-������.       -   ��� -  e*1  \o  By ABIES  The luncheon! meeting of the  St. Hilda's Guild met at the  home of Mrs. E.E. Redman.  Many items were on the agenda,  including the proposed visit of  the Rural Dean Reverend Valentine on November 15th, when  members of the Canadian Legion  and Auxiliary will parade to  church. The recent harvest supper was an outstanding success  and a profit of over $85.00 was  realized after all expenses were  paid. A vote of thanks was  moved for the committee who  worked very hard to accomplish  this. The Parish Hall debt is  being paid off and the Guild is  now looking forward to increased activity when the use of  ithe hall is available.  The Auxiliary to the Brownies  tells us that the collections of  the Al_-sweet margarine tickets  are coming in very slowly, the  response has been very disappointing and there is only two  more w.eeks left to enter the  contest. Mrs. Leo Nadeau is in  charge of this project and would  be very pleased to receive any  wrappers you may have. Wrappers may be* left at; the Union  Store. Help the little fellows,  in the competition.  There is a nlew club in the  effing for boys and girls 12  years of age and up. The prelim-nary meeting was held  in the Parish? Hall on Thursday  November 12th. Interested parties should contact Mrs: Lucken  at Wilson Creek for further in-  formiation.  We have found the sidewalks  from the main road to the waterfront a great convenience for  many years, and so have the  people living on the waterfront,  especialryliose who shop in the  Village centre. These sidewalks  were built by Mr. Herbert Whitaker, who owned Sechelt around  1604, and who did this work to  help some of the local veterans  who came back in 1919.  Three walks were'put through  to the beach, one of them, near  the Burley estate is now a total  loss, as the trees have grown up  and blocked the pathway. The  other two, one at Village Centre,  Behind the Village Coffee Shop,  and the other one behind Sechelt  Inn have so many rotten planks  that they are a danger to walk  on.  It seems too bad that people  should be deprived of this convenience, but no one seems to  be responsible for the upkeep,  and we feel that Mr. Whitaker  was so generous to Sechelt  during his lifetime, that the  walks should be kept up on his  account, if for no other reason.  Perhaps the Board of Trade  might come up with a solution.  It would only take a few planks.'*  to repair what is left of tfrer  walks, and we have heard several old time visitors comment  on the necessity of being able  to go to the beach without the  long walk on the dusty highway.  Mrs. Duncan McColl entertained her Sunday school classr ���  in the Parish Hall recently.  There were 15 children ,ages  ten and up, and eight aduffe  helpers. All the children were-  in Halloween costumes, and-  decorations followed the same-  idea.

After driving so erratically  as to be in and out of ditches  twice, with a fourteen year old  boy with him, and on a, night of  extremely poor visibility, Nev-  Forres Dulmage of Port Mellon  was apprehended. On being  found guilty as charged, he was  assessed a fine of one hundred  and fifty dollars and costs.  The Magistrate has announced  lin this connection that froan  now on in cases of this nature,  fines assessed in his court will  be more in line with those in  other  areas.
