Volume 8, Number 47.  Select  Candidates  Three candidates for nomiria-  , tion as commissioner^ were endorsed by the ratepayers of  Gibsons and district on Thursday last, at a rather stormy  micting.. ;������'���'���'  ' The nominating ; conmiiiiee'  brought in the names of A. E,  Jtitcuey, C. P. Ballentine, W.  B. Hodgson and Norm McKay.  ;There were four. other nominations from the floor, W. Boucher, -W, Skellett, Bert Caytor  and F. Crowhurst.  Candidates^ by speeches and  fey ^letters, -expressed., their willingness;yto work for the gpbd of  the; villagei, and the efficiency  and economy of the C^rnis-  sioh's operations.  A vote was taken to decide  which of the eight nominees  the; ratepayers would endorse.  This resulted in the names of  A. E. Ritchey, C. P. Ballentine  knd F. Crowhurst standing as  being supported by them.  The president, "Mr. MacNicol,  in speaking of the\ nominees  urged the ratepayers to support  their men, and fo work for  them' in  the  coming  election.  Recriminations were hurled  by R. Lamont and H. Fearn in  the matter of street lights,  which, they alleged, were placed in spots advantageous to  commissioners in office,    y  Ex - Commissioner y MacNicol;  defended* the;'mem^  commission^'-statingjyyytnat - y <��� ate  though s^e3 iighf^h^d ^heeix;  placed hearthelhomesf!|of. some  members^^nati^Tp^  the fact that the lights were  placed where they would do  the most good generally.  Fearn continued to accuse  the commissioners of ��� favoritism. The clerk, R. Burns, rose  ��� in defence of the commissioners  as did C P. Ballentine, who  both stated that in their knowledge, no favoritism had either  been looked for or shown by  any of the commissioners.  The" meeting agreed to ask  the Commission to investigate  the present lighting system,  with a view to reallocating  lights, or to placing additional  ones.  Sanitary Inspector B. Williams pointed out that Gospel Rock, one of the natural  beauty spots ofjthe area, was being fouled by the indiscriminate  and unauthorized dumping of  garbage.  Regarding garbage disposal,  Mr. Williams did not necessarily advocate a compulsory garbage removal, but urged the  ratepayers to use the : service  already in existence, which he  described as excellent, and the  disposal area and facilities in  good operating order. He commented on the very sm'ail. percentage of the people jofy Gibsons who used this forpt of garbage disposal, and how! many  must be dumping refuse in  places all over the surroundiig  area. .. ' '    '  He stated definitely ithat he  would .take action against any  person whom he might catch  in the act of unauthorized garbage dumping.  A report showed that grants  were not given directly to the  Elphinstone Branch VON but to  Headquarters VON, from which  was allotted,$300 for fa first  nurse, and $250 for a' second,  per  annum,' to  the  Branch.  egbytf^&SUeyi   n^6^BL($JLnrB  B of T Plans Retail  A very worthwhile diseus-  sioh took place in Danny's Dining Room on Monday, . when  the;Board of Trade of Gibsons  and; District worked out the  ideai of a Retail Merchants'  ^committee withiri the boardr  The -bmmittee would* be expect-  ^Gdy>tG .handle >..^r^|ems ypf^lpcal  retail * merchants "withiri ; the  communities, and it is hoped  may take the place of the Re-,  tail Merchants' Association outside the Board of Trade.

This picture has  had almost unprecedented runs  in all cities across Canada,  with over fourteen weeks in  Vancouver.

Everyone in the family  will enjoy seeing "The Kidnappers," and even though they  have seen it before, will lose  nothing by a repeat performance. Many who have already  seen this picture will be going  to it' again.  Water Again  The recent series of storms  has left "Sechelt without water.  The debris carried by the rain  swollen streams blocked the  water intake and main, and  since 10 a.m. last Friday, water  from we-IIs and nearby streams  has beem bucketed for uv.e.

Roads into Gibsons from all  directions were impassable Friday morning, following damage  caused by the several days of  heavy  rains.  A washout on Sechelt Highway at Roberts Creek crossing  took out about 100 feet of the  blacktopped highway, where  the creek had become a roaring'torrent. The same creek,  crossing the Lower Road, had  washed out the concrete culverts there too, leaving sections of the culvert strewn  among the rocks. The stream  bed at that point was filled almost to read level with the  rushing waters.  Bus service of a kind was  maintained with the Port Mellon bus pressed into service to  meet the passengers from the  other side of the break, who  made the crossing by following  a road downstream to an old  wooden bridge, and then following another woods trail  back to    the    highway.      This  bridge, too, was threatened  with destruction by the unusually swollen waters. Gibsons -  bound cars- were being hauled  through a part of this cut-off  through the Covington property by a DPW truck.  On the Port Mellon side,  there were two washouts on  Wednesday. A detour was made  by way of Hillside. Friday  morning there was a wash-out  at Bear Creek, cutting off the  detour. Ed Shaw's transfer  made the trip with a truck,  and hauled out two other  trucks that were stuck.  In an effort to re-establish  communications, Port Mellon  machines were sent out on the  highway to help the Dept. of  Public Works crews on Sunday last. The combined efforts  of both crews made the road  passable for work crews on.  Monday morning.  The Port Mellon bus was  able to resume its runs on  Monday.  Two Homes Suffer Damage  iwanss  K  IsO  Club  d  rganize  The Sunshine Coast. Kiwanis  Club, serving the. entire district from Port Mellon to Irvings Landing, was formed at  Gibsons on Tuesday, Nov. 23.  Sponsored by the North and  West Vancouver Kiwanis, members met at Danny's Dining  Room. Officials of the Kiwanis  nresent for the ceremony were  Eric Lowe, lieut.-governor, Pacific Northwest Division, Kenneth McKenzie, lieut.-governor.  elect for 1953, Charles, Shearer  president of West Vancouver  Kiwanis, Mickey McDougal,  North Vancouver Kiwanis, and  Darwin R.

Qualifying per-  ! sons may come in     as    charter  members until Dec. 8.  Mrs. N. King  Dies At 81  The funeral was held at the  St. Bartholomew's Church in  Gibsons Monday, Nov. 22, for  Mrs. Nellie King, who died in  Vancouver Hospital on Friday.  Nov.- 19. She was 81 years  old.  Mrs. King was predeceased  by her husband Henry. She  leaves her niece, Mrs. Burton,  with whom she lived prior  j her last illness. She also leaves  ; two step-daughters, Mrs. N.  Winegarden of Powell River,  and Mrs. Bud Edie, of Montreal, and two step-sons, James  and Mitchell King, both of Gib.  sons, and several grandchildren.  Mr. and Mrs- King were real  old timers in the Gibsons area.  Heavy rains caused consider-,  able damage to the homes of  Mr. Bracewell and Mr. R. E.  Black  of  Hopkins  Landing.  The culvert in, the highway  just south of Hopkins Landing  was taxed to its limit by the  flow of water from above the  highway. This flood poured  flown upon the Bracewell place,  where' the sound-of it roused  Mr. and  Mrs. .Bracewell.  When  they  discovered    their  basement was flooding, they  used digging tools to divert the  stream.  Mr. Black's home was found  to be    flooded    the    following  morning. Mr. Black was. phoned  in   Vancouver    and    neighbors  i secured   keys  and    moved    all  ! damageable goods off the floor.  j     At this home, water    poured  i in  one side of  the house    and  | ran out  under the door  at the  ' ether side.  Mail Through on Time  The mail went out over the  ;road; from.y-.Gjibsons.,y Jtp>. _, Halfmoon Bay On Friday more or  less on schedule, according to  Jim Marshall, Gibsons Postmaster. The contractor made  the trip up, by way of the Gov-  igtcn property at Roberts  Creek and back. He rushed the  return trip because of the road  and was towed back up Covington hill.  It was impossible to make  the trip to Port Mellch Friday,  but Saturday the trip was  made according  to  schedule.  The postmaster feels that  the people are due a word of  thanks for their kindly acceptance and understanding of the  difficulties, and any irregularities of service caused by flood  conditions.  Cecil Lawrence, of Sechelt  Motor Transport, reports that  in r.rrite of wash-outs, transfer  of passengers, and other storm  (troubles, his buses did not miss  a single trip. They operated  every run according to schedule.  A bridge crew was brought  out from Vancouver on, Friday  Credit Union  Eases Terms  As a result of resolutions  passed at the November meeting of the board of directors  of the Tender Harbour Credit  Union, members will enjoy a  more favorable loan arrangement ��� generally and additional  special adyantges in the financing of the purchase of major  household appliances such as  stoves, refrigerators and simil-  j ar goods.  With the Credit Union in its  strongest  position  since   its  inception, both as to membership  and    reserves,    the      directors  voted to allow the amount    of  ! share capital required on loans  to be .reduced from the former  ! 20 percent to  10 percent.

They were  commencing   work   immdiately.  In   the  meantime,     according  j to Road  Foreman Pilling,    the  ! old   MacMillan    Logging    road  \ was being investigated  with    a  view to  repairing  one    wash  -  ��� out which    would    then    make  ithat road  serviceable  for     bus  i traffic between Roberts    Creek  and Gibsons.  j During the recent storm  troubles, buses were unable to  make the complete run to Garden Bay, and were taken to  Madeira Park, where they were  transferred to Art Cherry's wa-  ter taxi, and completed their  journeys to Garden Bay.  Powell River Stages was unable to send its bus through,  and Sechelt Motor Transport  ran a service for passengers  from Powell River, -��-x\;$M*f  A temporary bridge has been  thrown, across the chasm washed out of the Sechelt Highway  by the storm-swollen Roberts  Creek.  One- Third Attend School  On Friday morning, at Elphinstone high school, less than  one-third of the students were  present, and some of the school  teachers who live in other  areas were unable to get to  school  for   first   classes.  School busses were unable to  make their runs from Port  Mellon, and from Roberts  Creek and  the districts west.  Two basketball teams managed to come from Powell River, a senior boys' team, and  a girls' team. One of the Powell River school busses was unable to negotiate the difficulties at Halfmoon Bay, and a  shuttle service brought them  cross  from  Roberts   Creek.  Supper was served to the  two teams in the school, and  the first game got underway  close ��o the scheduled hour of  7:30.  A chartered bus, loaded with  Masons and members of the  OES, made the trip to the Peninsula on Saturday last. These  lodge ni embers were bound for  Powell River for a meeting.  The bus unloaded its passengers  at Roberts Creek, where they  were^ picked  up by the Sechelt  Motor Transport,    and    carried  to Powell River.  The Black Ball ferry, Bainbridge, which makes a point of  trying to leave Gibsons promptly on time returned to the  wharf Friday afternoon to pick  up a car which had arrived  just too late, owing to difficulty with the road at Roberts  Creek.  On her last run at night,  she returned with a full load  of cars to Horseshoe Baj% when  it became known that cars  could not make the'trip up'the  Peninsula.  NO  WASH-OUTS  IN GIBSONS  Commissioner Ballentine reports that Gibsons streets have  stood up well under the heavy  rains and that no wash-outs  have occurred. He credits the  early fall preparations program of ditch clearance and  culvert cleaning, for this happy  state.

He also knows about the  heating plant, from the point of view of results. He is well  in contact with the lighting, the bell or buzzer system, the  public address system. The office is also, within his knowledge,      '  The playing fields, the walks and the school busses  are also things with Which he is intimately concerned.  The student knows his home, and his parents who  are ratepayers. They and their friends are the people who  pay for the school, directly through school" taxes, and indirectly through provincial taxes, such as the five percent  Social Services Tax, and many other forms of taxation, in  the form of various kinds of licenses, and-so' forth.  The student is the person who should be able to tie  the two together, the school which exists to educate him,  and the ratepayers who provide it.  How should the school be conducted? As now, or differently ? Should the curriculum be as it is or changed, and  if so in what way ? Is the building satisfactory ? Is its equipment satisfactory? Depending upon the student's answers  to these and other questons, who is responsible for either  maintaining the status quo, or for making changes?  The answer which pops up all to readily is "The  School Board." Who.is the school board? What have ratepayers to do with them? The student who finds the answer  to that last question is the sudent who can write the best  article upon the the theme we have posed: ..."The responsibility of the ratepayers towards their school."  This essay contest is sponsored by one who-wishes,  idle students*well, and is just as interested in the,ratepayer  <or the school board.  Tlie Coast News is acting with the hope that there  may be created a greater comprehension of these responsibilities, both of and by the ratepayer. . -  Here is a chance for students, not only to earn a  Christmas cheque, but to take a turn at dispensing knowledge.

With an old clunker! three places,  you  pay  $30   down,   and  that's  it.  PEOPLE ARE FUNNY  Now it came to pass that men went forth among the  multitudes, and did exhort them to join the Ratepayers'"  Association. "For," said they, "we must take stern action  against those who govern us, even to placing those from  among our own ranks, of whom we.approve, upon the Village Commission."  They went forth among the highways and the byways, and into the meeting places, and people, did follow  them, and joined with them, as members of the association,  even to numbers of an hundred.  "They have governed us falsely," they cried. "They  have had street lights placed to their own personal advantage, that they may bask in eternal effulgence."  A day was set, because of these arguments ��� whereon  men might be chosen that might be of favor to this group,  which would be able to govern-well-and wisely, and would  ���uphold the people against this brand of favoritism. Those  arose among them, and did hurl -vituperation upon the governing body. Voices were raised, and many charges heard.  Then the time came for-the casting of votes for  those who would govern well, who would spend the moneys  itfisely for the provision of public ��� lights and public waters,  and all things except public privies.  Behold, when the shells were counted, thus showing  the voice of the multitude, those whom the association  looked upon with favor, with but one exception, were already members of the governing body.  Thus often has it been, yea, even from the times of  the Medes and the Persians.  Then the fun begins, which  you could never have with a  new ear. For instance with a  new car, you would never have  the opportunity to hear a  strange flapping noise while  driving along on a windy day,  and discover that it was the  roof which had. come undone  at the front, and was ripping  off, leaving a sort of a latticework between you and the sky.  And with a new car you certainly never would effect the  simple cure of stopping ��� and1  placing a couple of rocks on  the errant fabric to hold it  down.  *       *       *  Also with a new car you  seldom get any Varying sounds  but of the motor from day'-'today.. It will just be a monotonous, if .powerful, rhythm. But  with an old car ��� wow ! Backfiring is commonplace, as are  coughs, rasps, and a sound  something like slow strangulation. In addition I have heard,  the engine of my old '28 Chev  gargle, hiss, grind, crackle,  and clank to the point where  it sounded as if someone was  inside it wildly swinging a  crowbar.  '-���*.*'.    * -"'.������'���  And the engine was not the  only source of odd sounds with  my pld/28- Chev. When it was  in low gear, it sounded- like  two old streetcars going uphill.  In second gear it resembled  four old streetcars going uphill. In high, the noise then increased to something between,  a CF-100 at takeoff and an explosion in a fireworks factory.  Trying to talk at 35 miles an  hour was about as difficult as-  carrying on a conversation in  the foghorn of the Princess of  Nanaimo  during  bad weather. .  In spite of its drawbacks,    I  Little incidents like this endear an automobile to its owner.  However, there were other  Incidents which were more em-  barrasing than endearing. One  time while wheeling along at  a favorable clip, I was flagged  down by an officer of the law.  My brakes    being    what    they  blfte that if my brakes were  j made any more effective it  would be too great, a strain on  the old spoked wheels. He just  couldn't see it my way, nor  could he become reconciled to  the flickering tail-light, wobbly  steering, and disconnected muffler.  But my contention about the  wheels being weak was . later  borne out on the occasion:when  the left back  one fell off.

Interment  was  made  at'  the  nuisance  grounds.    Left to  mourn its loss was at least one  young, man,  and maybe  a  few  other friends.    -�����  I consoled myself with the  thought that from then on, my  acquaintances couldn't make  any more wisecracks about my  driving a car that was a. quarter of a century old.

By STANLEY  BpfM��Tbp$  er Banks  Reporting the largest paid -  up capital of any of the chartered banks, the Bank of Montreal's ' 137th annual statement,  reveals record levels tor deposits and loans, with resources of  $2,548,508,239 at the highest  point in the Bankk's history.  Following 4he recent offering  of B of M Stock to shareholders  the bank's paid-up capital,  which for many years stood at  $36,000,000, is no^V $43;927i_rl2  while the rest account stands  at $87,855,824, When the new  issue of stock is completed, the  figures will reach $45,000,000  and $90,000,000 respectively,. a  total in shareholders' funds, ���exclusive of undivided profits, of  $135,000,000, the highest figure  for , any Canadian chartered  bank.

THE NAME THAT 'MEANS A GOOD DEAL  PHONE 5 S  ROBERTS CREEK r  4 Coast News Nov. 25,  1954.  at  .After riearly a.century of un-  remi&feg arid unselfish service  in war, peace and disaster, to  people pf all nations and  creeds, the Bed Cross cannot  bur�� its identity in a blanket  organization of diversified philanthropic arid welfare groups.  This is the reason why branches pi .��he Canadian lied Cross,  Society stand. slop! froni muslw  rooming ,community, chests that  would put all their "begs ini  ene askit," states Mrs. J. N.  Mawer, president of B.C. Division pf the .seciety.  During the past   few    years  na$iQn.aJi bodies of both American and. Canadian    Red    Cross,  who, by their    charters,   -have  definite  responsibility    to    the  government, ..haye passed    resolutions to pfev^^.^^p^ra^ch  joining in    a    federatedW.;;c��n)r-  $>aign.  Any  weakening  of  'J}$-  tional    status    of   the    society  could nPt only    jepardize    its  services to Canada as a nation,  but could also endanger its position as a unit of International  Bed Cross.  It has not    proven    possible  for a single campaign to raise  sufficient funds to satisfy budgets of all organizations which  previously     had   their       own  campaigns,  declares Col.  C. A.  Scott, B.C. Red Cross commissioner.    Records of most cities,  which have tried united endeavor,  show financial disappointment. There can be ho monopoly ih the field of philanthropy  , . .   no "cornering of the mar-  get" in campaigns,   he . points  out.  Red Cross has four major responsibilities, states Mrs. Maw-  er. Its service to the soldier, as  a voluntary auxiliary to the  government; its blood transfusion service, providing free  blood when needed for every  citizen of Canada; its emergency disaster service, ready when  disaster  strikes    at    home    or  abroad; its Outpost Hospitals,  serving on the frentiers of the  country.  Canada has an army of half  a million. voluntary workers,  serving under ~fhe. Red Cross���  one of every 30 people organized for any emergency. It is  necessary tb keep this civilian  auxiliary of the arme^ forces  and,civilian relief body as a  distinct unit, responsible only  to the government and people.  !{    I   f,   V-���    .    .  �� .<    I .^-..^ ���  FISH CATCHES  .

THE MONEY WE INVEST: j|P-' At the close of the year  the B of M had $952,522,945 invested in high-grade government bonds and other public securities which have a ready  market. This money is helping to finance government projects  for the betterment of the country and the welfare of Canadians  at large. Other securities held by the Bank ��� which include  many short-term credits to industry ��� bring total investments  to $1,170,406,863.

MRS. G. McNUTT  Nelson Island forms the west  shore of Agamemnon Channel.  The south end of this shore is  Fearney Point. Three miles  north from the point we come  to the lagoon and Green Bay.  A low bluff separates the two.  Once many years ago there  was a camp there. On observing the remains of broken china  and burned beams, I was told  a forest fire had swept so  quickly over the point that the  people were compelled to paddle away  on floating logs.  The lagoon and the -west  shore of Green Bay is part of  old Lot 1020, and the east side  of Green Bay is Lot 1021.  These lots belonged to the father of Roger Green, of Wilson  Creek.  The lagoon was no doubt  once a swamp, fed by a creek  entering from the west side,  but, seeing its possibilities,  someone blasted out .the entrance and used concrete to  make a large pond that could  be entered at high tide and  would not drain at low tide-  This was used as a log and  shingle bolt pond. It also, sheltered boats from the big southeaster that shot up the channel.  An abortive attempt was made  to build a shingle mill.  During World War I a    con  tract was obtained to can salmon for the army. A large cannery was built on concrete piling outside the lagoon, a foot  bridge over the entrance, and  the creek dammed to supply  water. Inside, a manager's  house, work shop, bunk and  cook houses were put up. The  contract died with the war.  The cannery was'converted to  a large shingle mill. Two big  houses were added on the outside shore.  The mill took fire. Enough  material was salvaged to construct the mill on shore. This  passed through several hands  and ended in tragedy when the  one-handed manager fell, from  the bolts into the lagoon. His  children and the Chinamen saw  it happen . . . the children  could not swim. The Chinamen  believed that when the spirits  came for one, theys must not  interfere.  After that ~ decay. '  Green Bay itself, has the appearance cf a Jong, thin mitten  with separate?'short little fin:  ger and thumb. The west finger has a waterfall draining  three swampy lakes. In 1914  this boasted the muddiest logging camp on the coast.  - Both shores belonged to  Green, but at the head of the  bay was another claim.  While we were logging  there in the 1930's the tug St.  Lawrence came cautiously into  tlie bay to pick up some logs.  On being instructed to watch  for a reef he said yes, he knew.  He had been in once along a  long time before to put on  shore, amongst the rocks and  Christmas trees, a farmer from  the prairies, together with his  tractor, cows, horses, household goods and even seed  grain. He had been sold a bill  of goods to the effect that he  could use his tractor and horses to log the claim, saw lumber, and then farm the place.  Needless to say, nought came  of this and the livestock met a  sad end. We might say, however, that the farmer is how a  very successful logger.  The lagoon is now owned by  Captain Henry    who    has    the  Hidden Bay Farm resort, whrch  ���he moved from the real Hidden*  Bay, called on the maps: Billings Bay. The three shore-side  houses, although renovated, are  the old originals.  It is reported that one  month's pay for the men was  accidentally dropped' overboard alongside the cannery  dock and never recovered.  Are You  We   can  supply   Men  and  Material for any Job.

Weather no B  to This Bazaar  ar  The Women's Institute Ba.  :zaar and Tea in the Anglican  ���Church Hall at Gibsons last  Thursday proved the weather  was no detriment to its success.  A good crowd turned out in  cspite of the stormy day, and  -enjoyed the warmth and cheer  <of the pleasantly decorated surroundings, for which an early  Christmas motif was used.  The tea tables were busy,  ;and the home cooking and sew-<  ing tables were bare by night.  The winners of the raffles  were: Mrs. George Charman,  ^child's fancy sweater; Dave  Hees, Christmas cake; Mr.  JRees, grocery hamper; blanket,  ;Mrs.  Gladys Brown.  Members of the W.I. were  please^ to have Mrs. Haley  back with them, after a long  illness.  This time of year is the sea  I son for the new crop of nuts..  They 'can  do  much to   glamorize simple dishes.  Toast nutmeats, chop and  strew over winter squash, or  string beans, onions or parsnips, - and people can't get  enough. No problem, then, to  get the family to eat vegetables!  Add nuts to' poultry seasoning;  stir into plain muffin batter;  ?trew atop the batter for a  quick 1-egg cake.  AH this, at very little cost,  loo, for a few nutmeats go a  long way. Right now, there's a  big variety of tree nuts from  which to choose, walnuts of all  kinds, hickory nuts, butternuts,  filberts, almonds, Brazil nuts,  pecans, pine \nuts, pistachios,  cashews and others.  "Is it true, that nuts are a  real meat substitute, Madame?"  "Only in part. Their protein  is termed 'secondary.' Therefore  to make the protein value  complete, some form of animal  protein must be provided, such  as eggs, cheese, milk, fish or  meat, either in the    dish    con-  - taining nuts or elsewhere in the  menu."  "In general, tree nuts " contain 10 to 20 percent protein,  and up to 73 percent fat, with  the balance carbohydrate," I  told him. They are high in  phosphorus, a good source of  calcium and iron, rich in thiamin and niacin, and a -au*  scurce of riboflavin."
