 ^CTO^  Victoria,  B.   C,  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE  COAST PENINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Published in  Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 8, Number 41.  Thurs.  Oct.  14,  1954.  Eighth Year ol Publication  OF FIRE  Over $200 was realized by  the Firemen-sponsored dance  held at Roberts Creek for Mr.  and Mrs. A. Garry and family.  The Sechelt Volunteer Firemen expressed their gratitude  for the immediate and splendid  response of the whole area, in  joining one of the largest  crowds ever to fill the hall and  to add to the contributions, the  Hall Board, which had an affair of its own scheduled    for  that night, not only gave precedence to the benefit dance,  but reduced their rental rate  sharply, as their share for the  evening.'  Already, the receipts have  amounted to $206, with an additional sum to come from the  sale of coffee and lunches.  Packages of clothing and  household necessities, a carton  of blankets from the Red Cross,  and other    similar    emergency  lumber operator has offered a^  donation of 500 feet of shiplap.  towards a new home. On Saturday, a volunteer work crew  gathered to make one of the;  buildings in the Garry yafd^  temporarily available as living;  quarters.. f  For three days prior to thev  dance, Fred Mills of Sechelt  loaned his car, which travelled;  from Halfmoon Bay to Portt  Mellon      with      publicity    an<  aid has been forthcoming.. One | nouncements, which    in    addi-'  ;tion to all other forms of publicity evidently operated to excellent effect.      The Peninsula  "residents were most    generous  iri their response.  The Student Council of the  Elphinstone High School has  .made a donation of $25 which  was equalled by the staff. Besides this, they are gathering  boxes of clothing, blankets and  household linens to be added to  the supplies for the Garry family.  NEW OWNER  FOR THEATRE  Anne and Vince Prewar, well  known residents of Gibsons  for many years, announced  that on Nov. 1 they will be assuming management of the Gibsons Theatre.  Mr. and Mrs. Prewar came to  Gibsons six years ago, and  purchased Anne's Coffee Bar  (now the Ferry Cafe). Later  they acquired the coffee bar at  Port Mellon.  The Prewar? sold both these  restaurants early in, 1953, and  bought the Marine Men's Wear  in Gibsons, which they have  operated and will retain.  Vince and Anne were the  first people to publicize Gibsons on the radio. During 1949  they were co-sponsors of Bill  Ward's Doghouse, over CKWX,  Vancouver.     ^  The theatre, located in Bal's  Block, now the Gibsons Theatre  _5uilding, which wps built in  1��47; was originally operated  by :C. P. Ballentine. Gordon  :��� Wei^jateie^^ok .^y&f &r'rnW  agement, along' ^fth"' 'his '' Se-  chelt Theatre^ ��� For the past  $_ar and a half, Gordon Dal-  ktell, formerly of Selma Park  Store, operated the theatre.  Vince announces a . program  of improvements to be effected  in the theatre, starting with  clean-up, changes in the. acoustical equipment, including - new  speakers.  He will install a soft drink  machine, ice cream and pop  corn.  He also expects to co-operate  fully with local organizations,  such as the churches, and welfare organizations, in running  trailers for them when desired,  and other ways.  The quality of his movies  will be maintained, and "Jack-  pot Nite" will continue on an  improved note.  Present staffs will be retained, with the addition of Vince,  and Anne, who -has projection*,  ist's experience.

It was of the public park and  those who had done so much  work to develop it, that Mr.  Pearson dwel$ at length. He  said Sechelt was. paticularly  proud of its park.

Following a one-hour cocktail  period, a turkey dinner was  served by Mrs. Laidlaw of the  Village Coffee Shoppe in Sechelt. Guests were introduced  by Magistrate Johnston. Then,  the function settled down for  the swearing-im of the hew  president, Ernie Pearson and  the vice-president, Steve How-  lett.  The complete slate of officers for the Board of Trade  during the next year " include,  after the president arid vice-  president, J. Mayne as secretary, T. Duffy, treasurer, and  councillors   A.

Mr. Moscrip in reply declared he. was not accepting  the gavel as a token for the  work he had done because  whatever he had done was not  for personal gain but rather for  the community as a whole and  that it was in that spirit he  was accepting the gavel. It was  announced by Mr. Pearson that  the gavel, a beautiful piece of  woodwork, was made by E. F.  Cooke.  During his remarks Mr. Mos-  crij> said that it was fortunate  that this year the Board of  Trade had a strong executive  and he urged that when the  Board of Trade had a job to  do that each individual do his  or her part. He urged all to re-  CAUTION!  The magisterial demeanor was in evidence at Saturday night's Sechelt Peni  insula Board of Trade  meeting.  Anyway it seemed that  way, judging from events.

We  get all the outside stuff in the  Province, Sun,  etc.  I know a number of people  who take the News, and I  think this is the general opinion. The other stuff bores  them; they want to see names  and places they    are    familiar  with close to home. ���T   _   _T   , ,,      _.  ..   _-  n-T-T��      jjT-nj      t-.- W.  B.

It was not, he  said, called for the purpose of  recruiting a big organization,  but to appoint the key men  and women who will be trained to act immediately in the  event  of  any  incident  happen-  GENERAL  DISCUSSES  DEFENSE  The Civil Defense got off to  a good start last Thursday evening when the Civil Defense  co-ordinator for the province of  British Columbia, Major General C.

This committee will accept  names until Nov. 17., Candidates will be invited -to address  a special meeting of the ratepayers on Nov. 18, when the  members will vote on the candidates to be endorsed by the  Ratepayers Association.  Trustee On Administration ^  Mr. Norman Hough, local  school trustee gave an interesting talk on school board ad-  ^ministrationi, and quoted the  number of students and schools  in the area. Questioned on the  matter of teachers leaving  School District' 46 for other  districts, Mr. Hough in his reply brought out certain facts  that made it evident that remuneration by no means was  the msin factor for changes in  teacher personnel. Family and  other reasons prevailed..  Another question in    connec  tion'with the apparent apathy  of the people in the matter of  taking an interest in school activities, blaming it on the present method of electing trustees,  brought forth the reply from  Mr. Hough that this subject  had  been   discussed   at    school  get .out...;"!; '--y Y ;  Later in the dinner he'  rose to remark that whatever he had said had had  its effect because some 18  persons immediately got up  and left the room. He drew  no conclusion from what  had occurred.  "; 7*��*V*ii-i'v,-' ��*.  Pender Harbour  To Get Power  Reports are current that th^  ���extension of power lines from  West Sechelt through the Pender Harbour areas will commence at an early date.  Approximately 700 families  in the whole area, including  Halfmoon Bay, Welcome Beach  and Redrooffs will be served by  this new extension.  Some districts have been  awaiting the arrival of power  for 17 to 20 years, according to  local residents. Many of them  have been forced to install private power during this time.

He also read an analysis of results of departmental  examinations written by university entrance students in  grades  eleven and  twelve  this  (Tum to Page 5>  ! act plays in  the High    School  auditorium on Nov. 12.

Improved service'  and convenience should result  for areas from Pender Harbour  to Wilson Creek.  Sechelt, which serves the  areas of Wilson Creek, Davis  Bay, and Selma Park, with 255  telephones, as well as Pender  Harbour with 50, and some 38  listed as toll stations, has long  been in need of expanded facilities. -  It is understood that service  will then be possible for many  would-be subscribers who have  been patiently waiting this improvement.

Ed and the Gibsons Fire    De  partment prevented a spread of  flames.  lhe fire was discovered by  Gwennie Connor just after 7:30  a.m. Her call aroused the family. Ud and a visiting friend  doused a cabinet of inflammable goods with water while  Mrs. Connor called the fire department.  The 24-hour telephone service acting as the fire alarm  system made a rapid call to the  fire department possible.  Mr. and Mrs. Connor spoke  very highly of the prompt and  efficient work of the Fire De-  .partmenjti, and, their help^ in  pleahing up after the fire- was  subdued.  The actual fire loss was pot  serious, because of the early  discovery and quick action by  the owner and the fire department. It amounted to the damaged deep freeze, 'stock of inflammable goods and electric  light globes.  Seek Funds  for Blind  This year the annual campaign for funds for the CNIB  commences Oct. 18, and continues till Oct. 30, the local committee reports.  Canvassers will call at homes  in the district. Letters explaining the work of the CNIB will  be mailed throughout the Sun^  shine Coast, and as last year,  donations will be received om  behalf of the CNIB by your local branch of the Bank of Montreal, Gibsons or Sechelt.  that anywhere from 3500 to  5000 people would land along  the Howe Sound, and Gibsons  would be the focal point.  General Stein pointed out  that general object of Civil Defense was to minimize effects  of disaster. He said, "There are  two types of disaster, the 'Natural' or peacetime disaster and  the 'man-made' or wartime disaster." It is more difficult ��� to  convince the public of peacetime value of good organization  to cope with any emergency,  and he quoted many disasters  where Civil Defense would be  and has been of great benefit to  the districts concerned^  All major national organizations and,: associations have  placed resources and facilities  at the disposal of Civil Defense  authorities at both Federal and  Provincial level. He stressed  the desirability of Red Cross  Disaster Services continued existence for peacetime emergencies, with the backing of Civil  Defense services if and when  required.  If beyond Red Cross capability, defense authority will take  over. The general dealt with  many problems of Civil Defense and at the conclusion of  his talk he invited questions  which proved both interesting  and profitable.  During the evening films  were shown "Fire Fighting for  the Householder," and "The  Rescue Party."  While the meeting was not  as well attended as it might  have been, what it lacked in  numbers was certainly made up  by. the enthusiasm shown by  those present.  Wharf Changes are Vetoed  Blackball Ferries Company,  according to correspondence received by the Village Commission by the Federal Department of Public Works, has  been refused permission to reduce the size of the wharf shed  or to move it to another position, on account of the bulky  shipments of farm supplies  which are unloaded to it twice  monthly They had also1 wished  to cover up the loading ramp.  Permission for this had been  refused The attention of the  Blackball Ferry Company was  drawn to the fact that mooring  their spare ferry there prevented use of this slip, and, the letter went on, Blackball was requested to discontinue mooring  at that point.  Regarding the request from  Blackball for a separate walk  to be built to the fishermen's  floats, the Department expressed the belief that since the Department had widened the approach to a 36 foot width, this  was unnecessary.  Information is to be requested of the Department as to the  identity of the wharfinger and  the harbour master as appointed by them, and of what did  the respective duties, responsibilities and authorities exist.  This has arisen from the  Board's observation of traffic  conditions which it regards as  unsatisfactory. ���  A letter from the Minister  of Fisheries in regard to the  matter of the establishment of  public lavatory facilities on  the wharf, places the responsibility for such construction upon the Blackball Ferry Company, since it is its passengers  who require such services. Mr.  Sinclair quotes the fact that  this was the case at Horseshoe  Bay and other ferry terminal  points.  Building permits    were    approved   for   Mrs.  Eva  Robinson  and for Wm.    Thomas    and    a  permit for the installation of a I Department,  septic tank for Nita Woodbury-       Bylaw   108     was  Fred  Fernie  was  to be    ad- j third reading.  vised that erecting a sign denoting retail business, in a  residential area, was in contravention of the zoning bylaw.  Those persons delinquent in  the payment of water rates,  outside the village limits, are  to be advised that non-payment  of such rates by Oct. 18 will  make it necessary to discontinue services.  Those having dogs without  licenses may be summonsed to  to court for violation of bylaw  52.  The Sanitary Inspector, Mr.  Williams, pesented a draft of  regulations to contol waste,  drainage and sewage.  The clerk, R.

It reaches all the way from high places  to the very low and cannot be swept aside with any bright  remark, no matter how clever the speaker might be.  We, today, do not have as much confidnce in those  above us as was prevalent before the wars descended upon  us. The results of 'those wars has led us into a new way of  living ��� which has its compensations but has also brought,  with it new problems. This is generally termed 'progress5  and sometimes is an irksome business.  We have also come into a world of managed currencies ��� a world that leaves the basic gold standard as far  from reality as any government, could possibly make it.  There are reasons for such a development and they are too  technical to cover1 in the orbit of ay short editorial.  Canada has been blessed with a type of currency  'management' which is one of the wonders of the world today. Many countries would like to have the stability and  financial confidence Canadians live under but many countries are just not able to reach that goal. They are struggling to get there and unless another war intervenes they  probably will.  In the meantime Canadians have been presented with  a method of helping themselves main'tain a stable economy  and it is a simple one. It requires some cash to put into' a  bond ��� a Canada Savings Bond to be exact. This year the  ninth drive starts soon and if one did not keep tab on what  happened in the eighth drive last year, Canadians surprised  themselves,, the bankers and the financial world generally  by purchasing close to $900,000,00,0 of these bonds.  Purchase of Canada Sayings Bonds at the present interest :rate of 3.25 on the dollar is,.as your banker will tell  you, one of the safest bond buys anywhere in <��� the world.  The bond is first of ������all guaranteed by the Government of  Canada and secondly it can be cashed in any bank over the  counter at face value plus accrued interest at any .time.  The reader might ask what all this; has to do with  confidence. Financial people usually guage the sale of any  bond by its acceptance with the general public. To date the  people of Canada have purchased a considerable more than  two billion dollars worth of Canada Savings Bonds and they  generally retain 50 percent of that amount for a "rainy day"  and *this is where the confidence angle emerges. Having;  even a few $50 Canada Savings Bonds safely stowed away,  gives one the feeling of security ��� not only in one's self  but in the ruling powers ��� regardless of your political  stripe. If you have not experienced this feeling step out and  purchase a bond. ��� They are obtainable from $50 to  $5000. Your banker is the man who can help you.  ALONG  By Barrie  Zwicker  of The Coast News  The other night I arrived  home at a reasonable hour, but  one at which everyone else,  unfortunately, had gone to  sleep.  I always try to be quiet  when I'm last one hi.  I never succeed.  You've heard cf Midas. Everything he touched turned to  gold. I've been bequeathed  with an unusual gift too.. Everything    I    touch    turns      to  squeaks,  rattles,  or  both.  * *     *  If anything ever was a waste  of time, it's tip-toeing in the  dark. By walking on your toes,  you make your ��� balance precarious, and if anything trips'  you, you are ripe for a clanging, smashing, Fibber McGee  closet-type fall.  Anyway, as said, I arrived  home, came in the door, and  proceeded toward the stairs,  via two floorlamps, a footstool,  a magazine rack and a child's  toy. Upon reaching the stairs,  I stumbled up the first seven. I  then continued up the remaining ones, skillfully locating the  loudest squeak in each step.  When, I reached the top of  the staircase. I decided to stop  and catch my breath. While  standing there listening to the  loud tick of my watch, it struck  me that in the dark a person's  decibel-rating goes 'way up.  That is, each noise one makes  seems amplified about 100 percent.        ��� %  Considering this, I flicked  the light switch in my' room.  It made a noise like the report  of a rifle.   .,  * *     *  Next I nonchalantly removed a wad of chewing gum from  my mouth and flipped it into  the tin wastecan. CLANG! Gad,  some scoundrel had emptied  the blessed wastecan and the  gum sounded like a boulder in  an oil drum.  Up to now I couldn't possibly have made more noise, with*;  out calling in outside help./   , '  I proceeded with the cymbal-  ic ritual. The winding of the  alarm clock sounded like a  gambling wheel at the PNE.  Naturally, the  alarm went off.  Finally, after one-half hour  of uninterrupted noise., I climb:  ed into bed. Strange thing  though, that according to my  watch only five minutes have  elapsed. And I'm the only one.  awake.  WOOD  IN   THE  DAWN  By L.S.J.  The small hamlet of Roche  Percee lies in south eastern  Saskatchewan in a flat in the  Souris River. A few houses and  a coal mine are its present modest claim to fame. It has other  assets however which will  someday be of interest but at  present are sadly neglected.  1'nese are the fossil beds and  more especially the petrified  trees. I was invited to see this  r.-/.remely ancient flora, now  <>i couse turned to stone.  The day. we went there it  was blowing half a gale from  the south-east and raw cold,  so we could not linger to get,  more details as there was the  rain threat. My prairie friends  are fully .aware of the importance  cf being home    to    milk  the cows rather than sitting in  the ditch waiting for some farmer friend with a tractor. I  saw enough however to make  the day a memorable one for  me.  The flat in the river bed is  quite large and due to this  phenomenon of the pierced  rock, the Indians of the plains  made use of the area for their  ceremonial rites. It is unfortunate that the rock collapsed in  the recent past and the pieces  arQ all that remain. Close inspection reveals that the rock  was a petrified tree that had  resisted erosion and gradually  assumed the shape that caused  the Indians to regard it with  a certain .amount of awe and  superstition.  There were two other trees  close' by and it seems to me  they are the forebears of our  coastal red cedar. They might  have been cypress, but the    as-  e  Contributed by Dr. Hugh Inglis   were Arthur Byfield    and    Dr.  Fred  Iniglis;   clarinets,   Eric  Inglis    and  Ran  Kenna;     drums,  Attorney-General on Lotteries  The Hon. R. W. Bonner, attorney general of B.C., has issued the following statement  on lotteries:  " Early last spring the Joint  Committee of the Senate and  the House of Commons on Capital and Corporal Punishment  and Lotteries submitted a questionnaire to me as attorney -  general, seeking certain information and views on the foregoing topics.  I am a little surprised at  the sensational headlines referring to my very limited recommendation concerning lotteries.  It should be made quite clear  that the view of the attorney-  general was sought in this questionnaire and not that of the  Government of this Province.  This being a federal question  under review, I have communicated, of course, only my personal view for the consideration of the Federal Committee.  It should be remembered that  the Criminal Code of Canada  presently makes provision for  limited lottery or raffle activity in the case of agricultural  fairs, where very large prizes  are often, awarded, and also in  the case of bazaars held for  charitable or religious objectives where the prizes offered  do not exceed $50.00.  However, any recommendation to extend lottery activities  in Canada must be made subject to many practical and  moral considerations. In the  first place, lotteries are a form  of gambling and the moral ob  jections to this type of activity  must be respected. From the  practical point of view, moreover, any recommendation to  expand lottery laws, even when  limited to recognized charities,  as my recommendation was,  would be acceptable generally  only if certain difficulties could  be overcome. First, a recognized charity would have to be  defined. This possibly is the  least difficult of the problems  presented by the recommendation inasmuch as charities for  income tax purposes were defined during the war and no  doubt a .similar definition  might be relied upon in connection with this recommenda-  tion.  More important from the  public's point of view, however, is the necessity for regulating the conduct of any charitable lottery to ensure that  only the charity would derive  benefit from its operation and  that private promoters would  not spring up to manage charity lotteries for their own advantage. Promotion expenses of  a lottery, therefore, would have  to   be  closely  regulated.  I  suggested  in    my    recom-  multiple appeals by canvass  and, therefore, I think the Senate and Commons Committee  would have to consider some  device whereby charitable organizations either in Canada or  in each province would ��� combine in a lottery appeal.  The current discussion about  lotteries in the City of Vancouver emphasizes the need for  an t objective examination of  the  lotteries question.  It. would appear that many  people presently support lotteries and by their action indicate lack of support of the  present provisions of the Criminal Code.  Moreover, many respectable  organizations by their inquiries  to this office, seeking permission to stage lotteries��� which,  of course, I cannot permit���indicate that people do not regard lotteries as a criminal activity; thus- the re-examination  of the entire question by the  Senate and Commons Committee will be a valuable service to  the public.  Evenj then, and even in the  event 'that the Committee  should view charitable lotteries  with favour, I think it    would  mendation to the    Senate    and | oe wise for the Federal    Gov-  Commons Committee that no  charitable organization should  conduct more than one lottery  a year. This view should be expanded to meet the practical  difficulty which is presented if  a large number of charitable  organizations each were to hold  one lottery "during a year. I am  sure that the Canadian public  would find multiple appeals by  lottery more objectionable than  eminent to canvass public  opinion as a whole before such  a far-reaching amendment were  made to  the  Criminal  Code."  USES  LITTLE  WOOD  The pulp and paper industry  takes only one fifth of Canada's  annual wood consumption. Fire,  insects and disease take as  much wood each year as this  industry.  The Gibsons Landing Harmony Club was organized under the enthusiastic direction  of Mr. E. J. Byfield about 1921.  Mr. Byfield, in addition to  operating his greenhouses, was  interested in all forms of music. He had been a violinist in  England, and played both violin and. 'cello well. He also  made violins. ' His son Arthur  played the 'cello and his daughter Margaret the piano.  *   ��� *     * .  About the time the Harmony  Club was formed, Gibsons was  fortunate in having Mrs. Wise,  an accomplished violinist and  violin teacher establish her  home at Soames Point. Her  pupils helped to- provide the  Harmony Club with the necessary new supply of players.  The Harmony Club held its  sessions in Mr. . Winn's Hall,  tjie site of the Mariner Cafe,  and shortly after it started, had  16 or more members in the  orchestra.

ECONOMIC   USE  Logs that could never make  anything but poor lumber are  the chief raw material of the  pulp and paper industry of Canada.  tounding incidence of this cedar moss as it is called locally  is not cypress and I know this  too.  If one could wrap these two  fossil trees in cedar bark they  would immediately become just  cedar windfalls with about  3,000 B. Mft. in them 'apiece.  They are swell butted and the  trunk is fluted and they would  have been about 150 ft. high.  I was more than certain when  I inspected the one that has a.  chunk broken off. It looked to  me as if some bucker had long-  butted the tree because it was  ring shook, and so help me the  ringshake is there to prove it.  The cedar moss can ibe the  missing link and there is no  doubt about this. The foliage  and odor are unmistakable. It  is found nowhere 'else I am.  told.  I think the paleontologists of  Saskatchewan are sadly negli-  j gent in not doing more about  this interesting corner of their  province. These trees are true  fossils and were buiied after  they had fallen in some prehistoric upheaval.  The petrified forest of the  southwest U.S. was destroyed  by volcanic ash and are in a  different category. If the Roche  Percee trees are a part of the  Red Deer fossil bed era, then  they come into the picture as  of 60 million years ago. This is  open to doubt, as the. lignite  coal beds at Bienfait are in  some places only a few feet under the surface cf the prairie.  This points to a heavily forested area in more recent times .  and I would suggest to those  in. Saskatchewan whom it  m'ay concern that here is a big  field for some of their students  of these matters.,  I suppose one should not crir  ticize too much as we have our .  own cypress trees growing,  here on the mountain 4,000  years old and no heed is taken  of it. In the U.S. there would  have been a highway to, and a  motel or park in-* these monuments of nature's, disdain for  man's little tick, of life!

She says bus drivers solicit  for Mr. Laurence's taxis. Well,  why not? Mr. Laurence pays  them and that is part of their  job. Does she think they  should say, "Mr. French or  Mr. Sawyer's taxi - will be  meeting the bus. They give the  best services.'' ��� ��� I darn well  know if they, did and were  working for me I'd pay them  off and they would have more  time to solicit business for  others.  So far as the bus service  goes I have used it quite a* lot  and always found not only  Mr. Laurence but his drivers  ready and very willing to do  all they could to make the trip  pleasant.  T.S.  traditionalists are right and  corporal punishment is the answer to many of our troubles.  The discipline in tke European  schools is strict and the results  are obvious when we see the  vast diffeence betwen pupils of  the same ag�� as our own.  I am given to ������ understand  that several of the exchange  teachers sent to America could  or would not try and teach till  all was quiet in the classroom.

The same criminal law applies to children  and adults, and English children can be sent to jail for  long terms, if the situation is  deemed hopeless. The British  also "grade" their movies, barring '"chii'drer. from those deemed suitable only for adults.  Television is rigidly supervised.

DIG OUT YOUR GLADOLI BULBS IN OCTOBER  Gladioli, with their gorgeous  flowering spikes, are among  the most popular of summer  blooms today. But in growing  "glads," the home gardener  has a real problem of insect  and disease control, according  to G. R. Snyder, horticulturist  with the CIL agricultural chemicals        department.       Infested  blooms are useless for show  purposes, and diseases and insects can be carried over on  bulbs to re-infest' next year's  flowers.

Dry the bulbs  in shallow trays in a well-ventilated room for about two  weeks then, remove and discard  the old bulb to which the new  ones are attached.  Tiny brown insects called  thrips are among the most  common enemies of gladioli  and since they can live through  the winter    and    multiply    on  bulbs in storage, they should  be destroyed in the Fall. Dust  the bulbs with 3 percent DDT  dust, using one ounce of dust  to. each bushel of bulbs. Then  keep them in a cool basement  or fruit cellar ��� as cool a  place as is available without  danger of frost.

Asked why this school did  not have the power of recorril  mending students instead of  having all university entrance  students write examinations,  Mr. Trueman explained that  certain requirements were necessary for accreditation. We  ha^e fulfilled all the requirements as to teachers'  qualifications, the num  ber of teachers, the buildings  and equipment. In two respects  we are lacking: 1. a trained librarian and a library room not  used full-time as a . classroom,  and, 2. a counselling -service.  Mr. Trueman said that the  School Board had made provision in the budget for counsellors, but to date had been unable to obtain a good qualified  counsellor. Mr. Irueman gave  his opinion that a good counsellor is of great service in y a  school but a poor one can , d'o  more harm than good. -���'-.'���s?-  Mr.  Trueman  also explained  that students are encouraged to  der named.

Concerning  the  teaching     of  Senior   Matriculation     in     this  school, Mr. Trueman explained  that we have the teachers    required,   but  the    difficulty    is  making sure    of    a    sufficient  number of students ��� about 15  ��� to justify the expense involved.      He mentioned that    two  students, Peter Slinn and Leora  Atkinson, are taking senior matriculation  by    correspondence,  coming every day for study  at  the school. These students,    on  completion of their senior matriculation, can go on to second  year university.  Mr. Trueman expressed willingness to speak on school matters of this professional nature  at any time, if requested.

KENNETT  Summer finally arrived on  the south coast by late September following one of the wettest seasons in history. The  eft-termed Indian Summer arrived in true fashion with its'  warm sunny afternons reaching  mid-sixties and its chilly nights  plunging the mercury to the  mid-thirties together with first  signs of ground frost. Even if  short lived, the last two weeks  of generally fine weather will  help to erase from our memory the overly deluged month  of August.  Here then, are the figures  recorded for the month of September together with the normal or average figures in brackets:  Rainfall, 2.94 in. (2.16)  Days with rain, 17 (13)  Mean 8 a.m. temp., 52.5 (53.9)  Mean 8 p.m. temp, 50.6 (56.1)  High, temp.,   74.4, Sept. 9th  Low: temp., 36.3, Sept. 30th  Wettest day, Sept.  11, .78 in.  .   Rainifall for    the    spring    of  1954 totalled less  than) rainfall  for the summer by two inches,  and ;for those who care to spec-  uate on the outcome of the last  months  of this year,    I would!  say this: 33.03 inches of precipitation; have been recorded    so  far this  year. Our yarly average in* round figures is 45 irn-  ehes'r Therefore - it can be -reasonably assumed 1954 will end  with   well above  average  precipitation  considering that No-  vernber and December are the  wettest months on   the    Coast,  normally speaking!!

As each name was mentioned  and type of work donated outlined, each received a hearty  round of applause.  Ted Osborne Sr. provided a  donkey engine and caterpillar  While Ted Jr. had hauled yards  and yards of gravel, how much  he would not say. Gus Crucil  provided machinery. Andy Leslie volunteered to operate a  cat and provided other labor.  Leo Johnson put in nine days  work on the project and Leo  Carlson an eight day stretch.  Others who donated services  and time were George Millar,  Tom and Dave Walker and  Tom Parish. There was also  some discussion about a  totem  pole which at this point is regarded as top secret until a  later date. Those who worked  on this project also drew words  of commendation. Then, as Mr.  Pearson related, Norman Hipp  of the Gibsons Board of Trade  I had done a "surprising thing"  by writing to the University of  Saskatchewan and obtaining  some crested wheat grass for  seeding areas of the park.  Mr. Pearson thanked all for  their efforts and added if it  had not been for their help  "we would not have had the  park."  In closing Mr. Pearson urged  all to join the Board of Trade  and any one member of the executive was approachable if  any person desired to join.  "Join and help. Don't sit and  criticize," were his final words.  Following the dinner and  speeches a dance was held  with musie provided by Jack  Whittaker.

The  ! fishermen were all in and    all  the  store .floats    and    Gordon  Lyon's dock were crowded with  boats-  High up by the Carine Ridge  the big camp  of  the Highway  Construction Company was being made ready for dismantling  some of the buildings sold, and  others, along with the   mighty  machines that worked on    the  magnificent ten-mile stretch between Maderia and Jervis    Inlet, were being made ready for  the scows that will take them  to Vancouver this week.  Many who saw the improvements in Al Lloyd's Store for  the first time since the new addition was finished marvelled  at the changes that make it a  regular department store, even  to convenient check-out arrangements. Soon the upstairs  furniture and toy departments  will be open.  Bill Matier, one of the Harbour's institutions, hospitalized  temporarily, and not only Irvine's Landing but everyone in  the Harbour who has ever  come in contact with genial,  obliging Bill Matier wishes him  a speedy, recovery. The Wharf  at the Landing just isn't the  same without Bill.  One of the Harbour's popular fishermen, Eddie Reid; also,  hospitalized in St. Mary's.  Among the Thanksgiving  week-end visitors to the Harbour: Dick ;arid Betty Poole,  former residents of Sinclair  Bay, with their two little girls  and Fred andRoie Sheppard of  Vancouver.  This writer is not as yet taking any credit, but I have  heard .reports of a slight stirring among the athletically inclined people of Gibsons.
