This  bus and the Sechelt Motor  Transport bus on its way to,  Earle Cove were passing when  it ran, off the road. The ditch  at that point is deep enough  that the bus lay partly on its  side.  Passengers were picked up  in private cars and a Sechelt  bus to continue their trip; to  Vancouver.  the schools.  A discussion/ 'of transportation of children by bus took  place, with some parents complaining that their children  were not being picked up, or  were having to walk ' further  than was necessary. The-trustees agreed to go into the matter at their next meeting.  Mr. Rendle, the school inspector, stated that the distance  for which transportation is provided, according to the new regulations from the Department  of Education, is 2 1-2 miles,  but this may be modified to  cover extenuating circumstances. He urged the Use of discretion in the matter of transport.  The question of why teachers  leave, was brought up at this  meeting. The board stated that  many factors entered such as  promotion, change of work,  family reasons, and a natural  tendency of young teachers to  improve their status. The  chairman of the board did not  feel that salary played too large  a part in this movement. High  school principal,. Mr. Trueman,  felt that all other considerations  being equal, the higher salary  would most naturally attract  teachers. Mr. L. Peterson  thought that much of the teacher movement to urban, centers, was. a natural one, salaries  notwithstanding.  The  secretary,  ^^^<&ihg.i<^^  Uiait'year's meeting, tiie school  Walter Boucher likes cod��  fishes for cod, and catches cod,  but a. forty-pounder, l.anded  without a..hook in him surpassed even his dreams, until laist  school board on behalf of the Thursday.

We had been impressed to  drive the School Board representatives to the annual meeting'  at Egmont. Over the ^highway, to EarJe^Coye it showed us  to be in a country of unsurpassed vistas of lake and fell that  has no counterpart on the Pacific coast. It was one of our  perfect October days that entices the unwary visiting plainsman into wondering if he has not reached Nirvana by mistake-and we are all angels and totally. unaware of our ..good  fortune on being allowed to sojourn on these beds of amar-  ilys and asphodel. The fishermen were home after a tough  week o^ gales and whatnot' and were taking their leisure and  to the uninitiated it would appear that they were as the lilies  of the field that neither toil nor spin.  . The boat time from Earles Cove, where I gathered we  were encroaching, due to there being no-public wharf,, took  us on a calm sea in half an hour to Egmont. My Egmont of  40 years ago had flown across the inlet' and was in a nice  sheltered harbour on the south side which with God and the  Socreds, plus the burghers of Egmont will in the very near  future tie in by road with the ferry highway. This is as it  must be so there can be no repining and the old oaken bucket will have to stay down the well. Progress is on the.march  and will not Nbe denied.  Light arid power will be there, too and the keel will  be forsaken for the.wheel except to catch fish with. : The  ��� payoff here is the site of the school and one cannot find a  ��������� school with 'such a magnificent viewpoint anywhere.

'. ,      .,:���.., .-���' .. L.'S.Jv.  ALONG-'SHORE  By G. M.  The industries of the Sechelt  Peninsula area are frequently  referred to as fishing, logging,  and small�� fruit ranching.  These were not the sole occupations in the past and neither  may they be in the future.  Many a shake shack along a  sunny shore was the part time  home of a combination trapper  rowboat troller, logger - prospector. The first four occupations provided the living while  the last was an absorbing hobby. -4  During the Yukon gold rush,  many prospectors, unable to  get north or returning- disapi  pointed diverted their attentions to the shores of the -coast'.  At first the search was for  free gold. Free gold can be  found, in nearly all soil. The  trick is1 to ^pjtjt ity in paying  quantities. All creek beds and  gravel deposits were explored  and panned. Gold was frequently found and also platinum but  never in large quantities." -  In the 1890's gold-bearing  ore was discovered near Fanny  Bay in Phillips Arm. This was  the famous but short-lived  Doratha Morton Mine.  ffayk Serrices  Sunday, Oct. 31  ���      ANGLICAN;.  20th   Sunday  after  Trinity  St.    Bartholomew's    Church  Gibsons  11:00 a.m. Morning Prayer .  11:00 a.m. Sunday School  St.   Hilda's   Church  ���-  Sechelt  11:00 a.m. Sunday School  1:45  p.m..

Perhaps I    haven't - watched  .-  the gulls long enough to appreciate the reasons for-their    actions.    Some of    their    actions  Would take a lot of explanation.  The main drawback to understanding the seagulls does  seem to be the fact that in  many ways they are like humans. This is brought out most  clearly when you see them eating. If you throw them some  food they will show their true  colors, and there appear to be  some black sheep among them.  For instance, when a tasty  morsel is thrown, all of them  dive at it, with considerable  crashing of heads. If the morsels are thrown in. rapid succession, the great majority of the  gulls will simultaneously dive  at the latest one, only a few  waiting until something comes  their way which they can be  ready for and eat without getting a dented skull.  * *     *  Also, although it must be  granted that they have an  amazing talent for knowing  from a distance which morsels  are edible and which are not,  occasionally they all miss a  good chunk of food because  none of them make the first  move. This can be compared to  the situation where the chord is  sounded on the piano and then  no one starts singing.  * *    *  Of the gulls we know personally, only one is a true individualist. He is like none of the  others and none of the others  like him. He is mean, contemptible and gets more than his  share of food. Why the other  gulls put up with his tactics is  a problem for the higher  grades. He operates on the  principle that to take food from  other birds is better than to  get it honestly. If he fails in  this,  everyone hears  about    it.  That's    why    we . . call.' .'him  "Squawky," H^ hoots uu-til'you  can almost see  his face getting  red.      The other day he got    a  choice piece of meat    and    instead of eating it    he    laid   . it  down arid began to '  clear    his  living space by advancing menacingly toward  the  other birds  one  by one  with    open    beak.  Each  in   turn  took flight.  This  makes us think that he would  rather fight than  eat,  and    -he  I loves  eating.     Incidentally,     in  ! this case, just when "Squawky" j  had  turned his    back    on    his  food.     an    impertinent    young  blackbird  trotted  in   and   m��de  off with, it.  *    *     *  I forgot to mention that  "Squawky's" right leg is banded. Maybe that's why he behaves as he does ��� he is a  bird of distinction.  Whatever the antics of the  gulls may be, all is forgotten  when one sees, in the proper  setting, a gull who knows his  flying. Sliding along the wind  quietly and near motionless, he  is a true example of beauty in  nature, not easily dulled by be-'  ing commcnplace.  It must be about the same  with humans.. There may be a  lot of faults in iis, but who can  say what we cannot accomplish  once we get flying?  "" united ',.,.���;���  . Sunday School'-.'  . .Gibsons,-rr.9;45..a.m.  Public..

Attention was switched to  mineral ores. Copper indications were found to be so numerous that this part of the  Coast Range is frequently referred to as the Copper Range.  Because of the large amount  of overburden, meaning - soil,  loose rock and vegetation, prospectors confined their search to  the shore line, exposures of  rock, and above timber line..  A rowboat trip along almost  any rocky part of the shore  will show the old scars of prospectors' exploratory dynamite  blasts.  Where there were good indications, shafts were driven  into the rock. There are many  such. Most were abandoned as  uiipaying propositions. That is,  the price for the ore was not  high enough to warrant its development qr <. jthere. .proved v to  be insufficient ore. v    ';-."  Some claims are still held  with the conviction - that the  ore is there and risk capital  will someday be found to develop it.

It was stated; that if  the veins proved to be extensive an aerial tram /line, could  be built to.
