Tourist Assn.  to Meet Again  The Sunshine Coast Tourist  Association rneeting at Madeira  Park last week was'too small]  numerically to hold an election  of officers for the coming year.  Another meeting has been called for December, to be held in  Gibsons. . '  Mr. Haddock, chairman, and  Mr. McAfie are instructed to  contact members of the Powell  River' Auto Court owners, and  representatives of the Blackball Ferries, and invite them  to December meeting, ....  There was considerable discussion on power rates, which  the members consider to be excessive for  service rendered.  Mrs. Sladey provided a delightful lunch at the close of  the business session.  the shelter is on the left side of  the road for the run to school,  children must cross the road  to board the bus.  Two cars, moving slowly,  passed at the moment Diana  stepped from the shelter. She  hesitated and let them pass, but  evidently \ failed to see the  third car, driven by Jack Homer, of the Headlands area, Gibsons. He stopped to let her pass,  and when she failed to do so,  started again. Diana chose this  moment to  step forward.  Jack twisted his car into the  bank beside the road, which it  climbed at about a 40 degree  anglej and Diana was safe in  the spot beneath it. George  hopped from his Dus and took  her home, where she was found-  by Dr. Inglis to suffer nothing  more serious than a small cut  on the side of her head, from  gravel.  George, Who saw the incident  gives all the credit to Mr. Homer for his quick action that  saved Diana from probable serious injury.  SECHELT' EXPLOSION '  Saturday night Sechelt area  felt the shock of an unexplaii>  ed explosion, occurring ��� about  9:30 p.m. A window'was blown  in. at the SecheJt Tea Rooms,  buildings were rocked, and the  OOPS, SORRY!

Further exchange of letters is expected,  to clear up minor points, before  definite steps are taken.  Municipal legislation is under  revision by the department of  Municipal Affairs. Further  study is to be given the matter  before the questions received  are answered.  *Compulf.ory garbage collection was discussed at this meeting with sanitary inspector, B.  wi11iprn>5 present. It was decided not to act hastily, on account  of possible cost to taxpayers.  Further  study is to be given.  Work has begun, on the repairing of the old water storage  tank on the school road.  A delegation waited upon the  Commission of Gibsons Village  on Tuesday to present the topic  of Organized Recreation, and to  ask for the appointment of a  Recreation     Commission. J.  Mathisen, provincial district regional consultant, headed this  delegation.  Commissioner Ballentine introduced Mr. Jerry Mathisen,  who outlined the plan to the  Commissioners. There was a  detailed discussion of the scope  of the recreation, provided, the  part the department played in  the matter, financially and otherwise, and the limit of responsibility it was necessary for  the village to assume.  lhe Village Commission finally agreed to appoint.and support a recreation commission,-  whose members should be C. P.  Ballentine, Bill Peterson, Norman Kough, Dr. H. Inglis, J.  Drummond Jr.,    Ron    Godfrey  j and Bob Wilson.  j     It was further moved that the  ] Recreation Commission hold its  own meetings and elect its own .  ! officers.  j The Village assumes no financial responsibility for the  Recreation Commission, but  may, if desired, make grants to  the commission. The Village  Commission may, should any  of the members of the recreation commission prove undesirable, replace him with someone else. The Village Commission also may replace anyone  who finds himself unable to  continue as a rriember of the  Recreation Commission, due to  ill health, absence, or any other reason.  Individual commissioners  questioned Mr. Mathisen upon  the various kinds of recreation  al activities which might be  sponsored, and were assured  that''music*-'-is��� -definitely considered a part of the program.  Night classes were also discussed, and Mr. Mathisen pointed  out that instructors for this purpose, whether recreational or  scholastic, were paid for, but  it was felt that the community  might provide travel expenses  and billet them..  Altogther, it was felt that the  delegation received a-fair and  favorable hearing, and that  a satisfactory Recreation Commission now exists. .^..-^^  ALUMNI HOMECOMING  Nov.. 6 means Homecoming  to University of British Columbia graduates from all over the  province who plan to -head  back to the campus for the annual celebration..

ALONG  (Established 1945)  Published by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.  every Thursday at Gibsons.. B.'C.  Member  B.  C.  Div.,  Canadian  Weekly Newspapers   Association  Member B.C.

United States and Foreign. $2.50 per year 5c ,per copy  LET'S FACE THE FACTS  To give the public a general idea of the trials and  tribulations facing practically every publisher in the weekly  or daily field the editor is going to- delve into his long experience in newspaper work to" explain a few things.  First of all The Coast News, like all other weeklies,  exists to serve the community. But this/does not mean any  specif ic section of the community. It means 'the entire community ��� those who advertise and those who do not. To  continue an existence there must? be revenue which comes  from circulation and advertising. There is no other source.  There is no benevolent individual or organization behind  The Coast News doing out funds as required.  The size of The Coast News from week to week is  set by the amount of advertising the issue is to contain.  Sometimes the advertising is perhaps a trifle too much for  a six page paper yet not enough for an eight page paper.  The editor has to decide what wHl be done. Adding pages  costs money and sometimes* puts the labor force on a pro^  duction spot. Men and machines are capable of so much  work in a given space of time. Readers of The Coast News  prefer to have their paper with a reasonable amount of regularity ��� on a Thursday.  Having decided on the size of the issue, the editor is  faced with a flood of copy from correspondents and other  sources including meetings of official bodies such as the village council and the school board. He looks over the copy  and eliminates some which definitely can wait. The staff  goes to work in the rest.  Time for making up the pages arrives and the editor  fills the news, space to the best of his ability. His horizon is  bounded by a metal form r��� metal, not rubber ��� therefore  only so much type can go into the available space ��� and  not another line. If there is any person on the Sechelt Peninsula who thinks he can get more into a page than the  present editor does ��� he can try. Having made up the front  page of a large daily paper for some 20 or more years, your  editor has learned a few make-up wrinkles and is willing to  place his reputation in this regard on the line any 'day for  any challenger to take up.  Comes the time when the pages are almost filled.  The editor finds he has too much type available for use. He  is also faced with copy not yet set. A late story has come in,  fire, accident or some other urgent matter. It must be set  and used. What to do ? The editor does what any normal  person would do. He makes the best decision he can and  hopes too many people will not complain because their item  has been left out.  The lines written in this editorial can be written by  any weekly or daily editor right across Canada, from one  end to the other and without exception. The daily editor is  faced with problems each day. The weekly editor has shis  every week. There is no difference in the type of problem.  Invariably it centres, on .the availability of space.  Looking at the problem from another angle,,it can be  safely said the editor and staff of The Coast News have no  prejudices. No copy is left out because it is from tliis or  that person or organization. It is left out because there is  enough type set to fill the available, pages and for no other  reason.  Down through the years your editor has stumbled  into many problems: Stumbled is the right word because no  editor brings problems on himself willingly. He has heard  threats of individuals and companies dropping their advertising, subscriptions and so on, but the fact that stares him  and everyone else in the face is that the publication so threatened continues to be published every day or every week.  So if the editor or staff inadvertently treads on youtf  pet com please remember that the editor and staff of-The  Coast News have pet corns ��� and someone treads on them,  too.  Perhaps it should be explained that the staff of The  Coast News does harbor a mild prejudice in favor of those  who send in their copy early.

Well new, we'll just read  through his column and see  what he has to say on this ill-  understood subject.  He says "My father, like  most newspapermen, was a  skillful crapshooter and always  had a ticket on the Irish sweep  which he purchased from the  same linotype operator for 30-  odd years . . . ���but in his own  way  he   was   something   of    a  saint,"  *    *    * "  ��  Well now, in a lovable way,  Jack Scott is trying to make  out thai because his father ^always held a sweepstake ticket  while he was busy being "something of a saint" that sweepstakes are really not too bad.  It's coincidental that my father  Sis something of a saint tooj^-  he's a United Church minister  ���and has regularly not bought  sweepstake tickets for 30-odd  years. Maybe that puts us back  where we started.  Jack Scott goes on to say, regarding the sweep tickets, "My  father never got a prize and I  never expect a prize . . ." but  says "I get a kick out of contemplating what I might do  with a big prize, but I'd never  admit that it gives me a 'covetous spirit' any more than any  other nutty day dreams."  My humble dictionary , defines day dreaming as "to fancy, to suppose."  In other words Jack ��� Scott  contradicted himself.

I rolled into  Cranbrook and had a tour of  Fort Steele thence to Pincher  Creek. The weather in that  spot had pot been so unkind  and the agrarians there had  harvested their durum and  winter wheat and, while counting the blue chips, were not  unmindful of the fact that next  year might be something else  again. I was much impressed  by the enormous valye holding  back countless billions of feet  of natural gas awaiting usage,  only a few rods off the main  street. >  *    *    *  Mad'ame J. has a few remote,  shoots off her family tree in  that area who arrived via prairie schooner in 1888 and I ani j  a mug for genealogical data. l'  suspect there was a mighty  Comanche warrior mixed up  with this outfit when,' I see  some of the fine looking 32nd  cousins twice removed.  From there I left about three  in the sunshine and wound up  at old Fort Whoop Up near  Lethbridge where I, having  read the annals of the RCMP  was visualizing one of the pill  box hat and mustachioed troopers pushing. some boozy Blood  or Blarkfoot Indian into the  hoosegow..  There   ish^^much^ -English  spoken in Lethbridge, our next  stop, on. market day if one takes  a s!low walk through the shopping district. I got on the  Trans-Canada highway where  it swerves around Medicine  Hat and decided to sup at a  magnificent motel and grub-  shop about a mile-and-a-half  from the Hat. Here came the  rain and southeaster and a  bunch of beery ill-bred clunks  in their cars to anake the night  hideous. The uproar died down  and was all over by 1 a.m. and  I wheeled out on the highway  course east by south. The traffic was nearly all trucks . and  not many at that. The rain hitting the car and smooth wide  highway kept the miles off my  mind and rolled away under me  at a pretty fair clip.  *    *    *  At Swift Current, Sunday  dawning, I found a bowl of  mush at a Chinese joint that  pleased me well and I may  here remark that these people  seem to be the.only ones who  take any care of it in the cooking or even have it on the bill  of fare nowadays.

I am prompted to e'xpress an  opinion that this Hallowe'en  festivity should not be condoned in schools and by ' som6  other organizations, inasmuch  that it is something false, such  as superstition and witchcraft,  and directly or indirectly, it inspires the j'oung mind to do  some- unusual act, which may  be.blamed as the actions of  witches, eventually having a  tendency to linger until the  stage of 'juvenile delinquincy.  In order not to deprive children of an occasion for fun, and  candies, substitute Guy Fawkes,  this event being fact not false  superstition.

Once a thriving centre, Atlin  is now surrounded by ghost  towns and the district populated by some 350 people isolated  part of the year from medical  and nursing services. The three  bed unit will serve as a first  aid post and emergency nursing centre for the settlers whose  nearest doctor is at Whitehorse,  75 miles away over snow-,  choked roads. Nurse for hospital is Miss Norah Roxborough,  graduate of St. Paul's and a  native daughter of Atlin. House  keeper is Mrs. K. Vineyard.  The Roberts Creek PTA despatched the business of the  monthly meeting within an  hour to welcome Mr. S. True-  man, principal of the Elphin-  Junior-Senior High School,  Mr. L. Peterson and new members of the staff, Mrs. J. Fallow-  es, Mr. Wicklund, Mr. A. Gup-  py and Mr. J. C. Stevenson.  The new members were introduced by Mr. Trueman and  each spoke briefly.'  The subject for the evening's  discussion was the type of reading material suitable for young  pupils, including" text books  now in use in school.  Mr. Peterson ably led the  discussion and illustrated his  talk with excerpts from textbooks used at different periods  during the  last 30    years.  "Our young adults today are-  expected to  possess knowledge  that has not been taught to  them." he said. "They must  gain that knowledge by reading  outside of the school."  That bought up the matter of  the school library and it was  learned that, if the PTA or any  other donor wished to make a  gift of books to the library,  cnly those on the list made up  by the Department of Education would be acceptable, although many suitable books are  not listed.

Many dented fenders are  the result of poor stopping ability. See that your brakes are  in tip-top condition.  Pace" your driving with the  traffic. Busy city streets or  crowded highways are not the  places to try to get ahead of the  other fellow. Drive with the  traffic, neither too fast nor too  slow. Weaving from one lane  to another is hazardous.  The stop sign at the side of  the road, called the boulevard  stop sign, is there for your protection. Come to a ��� full stop  when you approach it, then  when the intersection is clear,  proceed. Remember to come to  a complete stop, not just a  "rolling slow down."

They  plan to stay' about a month.  The canned crabapple, long a  dessert favorite, now appears  as a colorful and tasty decoration for many buffet meat dishes. The commercial process developed may be simply adapted to home processing in cans  or glass jars, says J. A. Kitson,  Experimental Station, Summer-  land,, B.C.  Fruit selection is important  to production of an evenly  dyed, glossy . .skinned product  with a few large checks in the  skin which are considered deferable. Best results in. experi-  j mental packs have been obtained with fully ripe Transcendent or Hyslop crabapples.  For home processing the  fruit is simply prepared by  washing in cold water, leaving  stems on and filling into fruit  enamelled cans or scalded  glass sealers. Five cloVes provide sufficient spice for a 20  oun.ce or No. 2 can with proportionately more being used  for larger containers. A syrup  consisting of three cups of water to two cups of sugar is colored by addition of red food  dye. To produce a bright color  in the finished fruit approximately two teaspoons of most  common brands of red liquid  food coloring should be' added  each cup of syrup. For variety  a green dye may be substituted.  The home process for cans  consists of heating the prepared  syrup to boiling and pouring  into the fruit filled containers.  Cans are partially immersed in  boiling water for three miriutes  to exhaust prior to closing,  then cooked for 15 minutes in  a boiling water ^bafch. If glass  jars are used lids are applied  according to the maker's directions and the product is cooked  Coast News 7  Thur., Nov. 4,  1954.

He feels that his protege,  Teddy Hume, will give a good  account of himself. "He may  not win but they will sure  know he was down there", says  Frank  confidently.  Teddy had a shot at-the Emerald Gloves in ��� Vancouver  some time ago and suffered  ffom the old stage fright, but  with the added training experience he should be in there  fighting this time.  Port Mellon has fixed up a  fine gym complete with ring,  punching bags, etc., and with  the hard work of Frank Santolas  and  his  helpers,  Port Mel-  Ion should be turning out some  pretty good fighters in the future. /  This is the time to remind  the rest of the Peninsula to  try to get going along these  lines as I am sure there are  lots of young men around who  would like a little training in  the manly art  of self-defence.  Mr. Santolas has offered to  help all he can in the organization, of other boxing clubs on  the Peninsula.  This is too good a chance for  us to miss. The results can't be  anything but good and there  would be a real chance of drawing crowds to inter-town fights.  Gibsons is already talking up  a boxing club and who knows,  we may be the next to send a  boy into the squared circle in  search of fame.

Singers Needed  Those who followed the accomplishments of Wilson Creek  children's choir both at the  local festival and at Vancouver,  will be plesed to learn that rehearsals have commenced for  this coming season.  There are still a few vacancies in both high and low sections. The rehearsals at present are being held /in the Wilson Creek Hall on ' Sundays at  3 p.m.  Grade Six, and Junior High  students are especially  invited.  A public meeting was held  in the Sechelt Legion Hall,  Tuesday evening October 26.  FO Norm Johnson and Sergeant Bill Lobb, RCAF, two  air force personnel in charge of  Observer Ground Corps described the work of the corps  and showed two films."  There are 450 observer posts  on land on Vancouver Island  and on tjie mainland from Ke-  mano down through the Interior to the USA border. On the  sea there are 279 coastal vessels also assisting in the work  of observing movements of aircraft.  FO Johnson spoke on the  necessity for the hundreds of  civilians who assist the RCAF  in this vital service. It was, a  patriotic peace-time volunteer  service, not only for the reporting of possible alien aircraft,  but this Corps has been of  great assistance in noting air-  I craft which have crashed or  have been in: difficulties while  on routine flights. Searches icv  missing aircraft cost thousands  of dollars and hours of time-,  but the Corps reports can narrow the area of search so that  lives can be saved by rescue  parties being able to arrive  without too much delay.  Throughout Canada there  are 65,000 civilian volunteers  and twelve filter stations. The  filter station in Vancouver is  at 1373 Howe St. There are 250  civilians, under the supervision  of the RCAF, who have volunteered to man this station 24  hours-a day every day in the  year  A moving picture Was shown  to further explain FO" Johnson's verbal talk on how the  Corps performs its duties, and  how the reports are handled-  in the filter stations. Sergeant  Lobb also ran the film "The  Battle of Britain" and in that  film the meeting saw the work  of the 'observers in Britain during World War  Two.  After the films Air Observer Wings were presented. FO  Johnson paid tribute to the  late Ken Whitaker, who had  organized the local corps, and  was the regional supervisor.  Michael, Mr.  Whitaker's    older  son, was {he first person to be  presented with his Air Observer Wings.  Mr. T. Duffy," newly appointed regional supervisor, was the  next one presented with wings.  Wings were also presented to  F. J. Mills, assistant regional  supervisor, George Critchell,  Senior Observer at" Davis Bay  post of which Rom Whitaker is  the chief observer, also to Jack  Whitaker and Vic Franske of  the  same post.  The staff of the    local    Provincial Forestry  Office   are  also observers, but all were  out  of the Sechelt area at the time.  The   Sechelt  Legion    branch  No.   140  was  thanked  through  j J.  S.   Browning,  the  president,  ; for the use of  the    hall,    and  j Mrs.    Arthur      Macklin      was  J thanked for having assisted the  local corps as a volunteer stenographer.  More   volunteers  are  needed for the    Air    Observer  corps, and  anyone who is willing to help, should get in, touch  with  the    regional    supervisor,  T. Duffy.  Going to  NANAIMO?
