Alex Grant  Suffers Fall  On Monday last, while on  his way to escort his wife  home from the neighbors, Alex  Grant* of Hopkins Landing got  as far as T. Humphrey's home,  when he slipped and fell; _. ....  He, was unable to rise, or to  make his calls fpr help heard  above the wind and the rain.  ���, Meantime, Mrs. Grant, returning home, found him missing and in some alarm started  for  the  Humphrey's home  for  help. She found him at the foot'employer, join the union with-  employment with firms  operat-  of the steps,    soaked    through,; in a period of 30 days as a con-  ed by a father and son.

A labor, department conciliation board report concerning  negotiations following the recent strike, aboard. the - ferry  states that 'the parties at tlie  time of the report were unable  to agree on terms and . conditions contained in the proposed  union agreement.  The dispute is between the  Seafarers International Union of  North America (Canadian district) and Ole, Elmholdt, of Gibsons.  The conciliation board report  said the board was unanimous  in recommending terms for a  T collective agreement with the  exception that Robert Macnicol  the employer's nominee, did not  agree with the recommendation in connection with the supplying of, crew and wages.  Halford Wilson, chairman of  the conciliation board and A. T.  Alsbury, employee nominee, recommended a wage, of 90 cents  per hour and that any person  seeking employment with     the  ranspor  iscusse  Transportation problems were  discussed at the School Board  meeting in Gibsons on Monday,  when, delegations of parents  were present to present their  cases.  - Due to the extreme traffic  hazards between Soames Point  and Granthams Landing, the  Board has agreed to arrange  that the turning point on that  bus route be changed from  Granthams Landing to Soames  Point; The board is taking advantage of clauses in the regulations x��f the Department of  Education in this regard wliich  ��llow: for. special hazards to be  lakeri: into account in mapping  out bus routes.  "Extension of bus service for  Reids Road and' the North  T&oad was also pressed for, by  a representative from that  E-rea, from which 51 pupils attend the school at Gibsons.  Highway hazards . were again  stressed. It was considered impractical at present to make an  extension.

The transportation committee  presented its report after a re- ;  view of the entire  situation at   ,  the request of the Department  of Education, indicating that no  further economies are desirable   -  or possible.  The resignation of Mr. Ayles  from  the janitor  staff was   re- -.  ceiyed and  accepted,  and    the  appointment of J. Garlick to the  position was  confirmed.  The Board approved the action of the high school principal in dismissing three students  for consistent truancy.  Negotiations of    the    finance  committee   with    the   teachers ;  committee on salaries for 1955  were discussed. The board    approved the schedule    presented  by the teachers with some modifications.

ALONG  By Barrie  Zwicker  of The Coast News  Every time I go to Vancouver there are less people there.  The decrease can be accounted  for by murders connected with  drugs, murders connected with  bank robberies and stabbings  connected with umbrellas.  It's very dangerous to go out  on the-streets of Vancouver  when it's raining. It's a little  safer if one sticks to the back,  alleys.  On the sidewalks, though,  one has to contend with a bobbing colorful array of. weapons  wielded mostly by females  who have no regard for persons not equipped with such  weapons.  Ainy men who happen to  carfy umbrellas find themselves'��� in 'a helpless, situation,  j Generally they have to walk  in the puddles to avoid being  punctured;  t If a man's ladyfriend has the  umbrella, he-is obliged to-carry it: It doesn't pay for him 'to  A GOOD JOB IS NECESSARY  Formation of a Gibsons and -District Recreation Com-  mission under the chairmanship: of Mr. W.

One ca:.i read.in, the..d,aily press almost any  fissfc about organized gangs of youths including girls, in any  ��sf our larger cities. But these gangs are not organized for  the g-ood of the community. .  ��� The young mind needs leadership.

The younger element  sfecreikl to some extent do some organization, work, among.  themselves and provide their own set-up for approaching^  the committee on an organized basis., whenever there is a  problem to be solved. ���  It could be that the younger set could learn a lesson  ik pmper procedure in placing their requests before the  eonmiittee.

"Ad infinitum. I think that  there was no error of grammar  or mechanics, of organization  or general composition, that  was not perpetrated by this  class of teachers not once, but  many times, and despite repeated corrections. Syntactically their papers were" a chaos,  the punctuation a farce, the  spelling a grim joke. As further examples of the last, consider such spellings as emensly,  immencely, accidently, impris-  orrient, controll, immagined,  immegrants, symobols, tence,  oblidged, suceed, relialable, exe-  cutation, ciper, occurr, factional  (for fictional), dramits (for dra-  mitists), gilt (for guilt), relief-  ed (for relieved), and harmous  (for harmonious).  The professors concluding  paragraph read "If someone  were to ask me, and someone  has, the nastiest question of  all: "What did you do about  it?" I would beg him to remember, among other things, that  these teachers either pass such  courses or change their "professions, an event that would  be' disastrous for their personal  lives. I passed 'em, What would  you have done."

It's well  worth your while to visit the  modernistic two-story building  and see some of the Urie creative art. The modern art is  intriguing. It cannot be dismissed with "Oh, that stuff  doesn't make sense." The fact  is, if one earnestly stops and  considers a piece of modern,  work for a while, it will often  become something which can  be understood and enjoyed.  There is an outstanding collection of modern art coming to  the Art Gallery Nov. 16 to Dec.  12. It is the Guggenheim collection, one of the world's most  famous. It includes work by  Chagall, Picasso and Leger, 26  artists in all. Open hours at the  display are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  Tues. to Fri. and .2-5 p.m. Sat.  and Sun.

It was most heartening to  have 70 present,, The business  of the meeting was soon dealt  with, and Mr- Child, principal  of the Gibsons Elementary  School, presented following reports to be dealt with:  1. A letter from Sechelt  School asking if the PTA was  in favor of inaugurating a  school patrol to assist little ones  crossing road to and from  school. The meeting decided  that this should be investigated.  2. A letter froni the Film  Board asking if PTA would be  interested in sponsoring a program. It 'was moved that PTA  do so. y  3. Re the survey of all pre-  school children, this lias been  carried on by the school children themselves. Anyone who  has a pre-school child, no matter what age, who hasn't filled  out the form, may obtain forms  by phoning Mr. Child.

Suggestions were: 1. A Kindergarten run in conjunction  with the school, so that any  tendency could be spotted and  dealt with before the child entered  school.  2. That mainly shyness is  caused by fear, whether real  or imagined.  3. That children who were a  problem should be dealt with  by competent instructors, on  the teachers' suggestions.  ���    The mothers of Grade II then  jserved      refreshments,      which  twere greatly  appreciated,    and  the meeting adjourned.

['_  Laugh if you like but I also  picked the underdog New York  Giants  in the  World  Series.  In my opinion the Eskimos  will win only if they use the  split T formation which is not  used as often in the east.  Another reason will-be Noj-  mie Kwong, if he is used as  regular as he was in last Saturday's game  against  Winnipeg.  These two things coupled  with a few breaks, and the.Eskimos should give the west our  first Grey Cup in 20 years.  #       *       ��  The Recreation Commissions  of the Peninsula are slowly.getting on their feet. We realize  that it takes time to organize  and afe willing to wait until a  well functioning unit is set up.  After the District Commissions meet on Friday night  there should be no reasoni why  they cannot get into some of  the activities.  The Recreation Commission  deals with a great many activities besides sporting events,  but being primarily interested  in sports I think basketball being one of the main winter  features, should receive the  Commission^ immediate attention.

Telephone .Company  commercial engineers have  nearly completed one of the  biggest projects undertaken in  the former Federal government  telphone system since acquiring  it last April  1.  This project, which consisted  of a detailed survey of all former government exchanges to  assess the demand for telephone  service, present and future, in  these rapidly growing areas of  B.C., was under the direction  of T. D. Owen-Turner, general  commercial engineer.  Employing various means of  transportation and usually travelling in pairs, members of the  department have examined in  detail the types of homes, number of businesses and general  economic outlook of each area.  "Interviews have been hel/i  with representatives of public  and other bodies to .gain further statistical: and industrial  information, and to make sure  that nb important aspect ;^hich  wbiild affect the telephone requirements was overjpbked,"  states  Mr. Owen-Turner.  From all of this-, material, reports have been formulated  outlining the various geographical, economic and social factors of the area, and "forecasts" made of the probable  telephone requirements for the  next decade.  In addition, members of the  engineering department have  completed a comprehensive examination of all outside plant  facilities, equipment and buildings in the.former government  exchange area. This will :be  used with tije commercial surveys to complete the necessary  arrangments. for_ installation of  jwire, cable and switchboards.  About Fish  KOKANEE   OR   KICKAN-NNTT  Cogitations on a report from  a local fisherman of local repute that there was a tremendous amount of Kokanee fin-  gerlings in Saginaw Lake this  spring. This remnant of the prehistoric is worthy subject for  conjecture. It is a fact that they  are the descendants of the sockeye salmon who keeping up  their eternal cycle of birthr  spawn and death have no doubt  been trapped by the quakes  and cataclysms of the i emote  past that have blocked the intend lakes . and rivers thus  bringing into being a more or  le.'s peculiarity.  In the official "Fishes of the  Pacific Coast" by the Research  board this unfortunatus is dismissed in about two lines mostly devoted to the names attached to the Kokane'e by local  usage. These' are. Kickahiriny-  Kennerly's Salmon, Little Red-  fish, or silver trout. First we  must allow that these disasters  to these fish came at long intervals through the ages and none  at least known,- since the advent of the white man. Why  then is the Kokanee the only  one referred to. Are not all the  trout and salmon species des-  cndants of land locked or trapped sea fish? The tremendous  lake trout of the interior looks  as though his ancestry lies  with the spring salmon. Why  can't some research be done oh  him? I suppose for one thing  there is no profit in it and our  boy Jimmie would not have  time away from the Colombo  plan and sockeye prbpogation  to look into or suggest it to  some of his erudite ichthylogists  in Nanaimo. Looks like a big  slosh of money will be poured  away again at Roberts Creek  on a stupid pyramid.  Well anyway here we have  these profundities ���- Dolly Var-  den trout in a lake at the headwaters of Mission Creek, Kokanee in Clowholm and Saginaw  Lakes and there is nothing to  stop these fish following the  cut throat trout back to sea, is  there? Why da present Saginaw sockeye- come way down to  Porpoise Bay and then return  to the lake to spawm. Even if  the ancient channel were still  open where the village of Sechelt how stands it. would  seem as if they are the wrong  way fo. Why do Toba and Bute  inlets have such a preponderance of white springs over red^  in their respective rivers. The  awesome magnitude of th��>  time elements in these perplexities is no doubt the key that  brings us reluctantly to a blank  page.  -L.o.J.  CANCER   MAIN   KILLER  Cancer Rilled nearly four  times as many Canadians in  1952 as all other notifiable diseases combined. The 17,710  cancer deaths contrasted with  4,775 caused by tuberclosH  polio and 39 other diseases.  Heart disease, which is not  notifiable, is still by far the  leading cause of death.
