Volume 16, Number 42, November 1, 1962.  7c per cony  ��� A COMPLETE LINE  OF MEN'S CLOTHING  Marine  Men's  Wear  Ltd.  Ph. 886-2116 ��� Gibsons, B.C.  Post office transfer  made without hitch  Starting Nov. 1 when ferry  times change the 'mail will  arrive at the .Post Office  ' about 10 a.m. and be ready'  ' for distribution about 11 a.m.  Closing time for mail to  Vancouver will be 3.10 p.m.  " All appears to be going along  quite well at Gibsons new post  office which opened "Monday at  the corner of Winn and Gower  Point roads. The public appears  to be satisfied and.no complaints  have reached the ears of James  Marshall, postmaster.  ; The transfer of equipment, fui-  niture and staff for Monday  morning's opening was effected  soon after the old post office  closed at 1 p.m. Saturday.  Officials from the department  of public works spent some time  in selecting the site. Two sites  were under consideration, one  next to the Johnson block on the  lower side of Gower Point road  and the other at the corner of  Gower Point road and Winn  road.. The department finally  settled on the Winn road property and asked Gibsons council  to approve its selection.  ; Just before approval was given  a petition was circulated by C.  P. Ballentine among business  men which generally opposed  the location. N. R. McKibbin  made a personal protest by letter to the department and also  to Gibsons village council.  ��� Postmaster - General William  Hamilton, since defeated as a  Conservative candidate, turned  the first sod for the new post  office, on May 22. Councillor A.  H. Pay represented the village  council and W. H. Payne, who  was then Coast-Capilano member of parliament, attended the  ceremony.  - Tenders for construction of the  building closed, on April 25 and  the contract was awarded WkJ.  Dick Limited of West Vancouver  in the amount of $32,600.  The building fronts easterly on  Gower Point road and is built  well back from the road with a  walk to the cement steps with  an   ironwork   bannister. At the'  Guide program  The Girl Guides 'Association  Sunshine Coast division meeting  in the United Church Christian  Education hall Sat.^ Nov. 3 will  open with registration at 12:45  p.m.  Mrs. J..

There are some people in this  area who have achieved a "mark  of distinction"; because of an old  wood' stove.  The old wood stove, no longer  usable could have been taken out  to sea and buried with honors.  However its' owners preferred to  have a "mark of distinction" of  sorts by heaving it over the sides  of Gospel Rock, thus making the  landmark a thing of beauty plus  a decrepit old wood stove lying  in two sections.  One disturbed Gower Point resident sugested the mark of Cain  should descend upon such des-  poilers. However miracles these  days are being achieved in other  directions.  funiuinwuumiutnttUttttauuuuumttunmxraraifflmuKBi  entrance is a large alcove where  box-holders can get their mail  from withouti having to go inside the building.  This will eliminate box-holder  traffic in the office section  where under' banks of fluorescent lights, a two-grill counter  with an open section for' parcels  and other business, stretches  across the-inside-office-area.-  ���  The public side of the counter  contains an_ area 12 feet by 27  with the.r office space b,eing  roughly 27-feet-'wide by about  30' feet deep. The floor is lino  covered and the lower section of  the walls covered- with birch  wood and the upper half wall  board painted in pastel color.  Mr. W. J. Dick, the contractor,  who built the post office says  there is about a ton-and-a-half  of reinforcing steel" in the build-  ' ing with the cement walls built  to withstand 5,000 lb. square  inch pressure.  The building , contains normal  plumbing, a furnace room, area  for moving incoming and outgoing mail and is designed for a  simple handling of, all mail.  Outside, from' the Gower Point  road, is an incline into the park-.  ing area which will be used also'  by incoming and outgoing mail  trucks. The wooden exterior has  been varnished and when the  area is landscaped a bit it will,  while not large, present an imposing appearance.  Mr. Dick, the contractor believes Gibsons has a good post  office building. He has built several post offices and-is of the  opinion that the Gibsons building' is well proportioned." It is  a good job well-done, he said,  and he is proud of it.  On his labor staff at the post  office were Norman Froese,  Karl Andersen and David Dick,  his son. These men, he added,  did their work well and also deserve a pat on,the back-foi\theh ,  .efforts.  Ghost story for  motley crew  An assortment of characters  gathered at St. Hilda's Church  Hall in Sechelt last Friday night,  a motley crew in fact. Hobos and  cowboys hobnobbed with a sUaye  top - hatted gentleman, siev^ral  foreign young ladies, a bride and  some gypsies were chatting with  the pirates and an organ grinder..  There was a black cat and a rabbit and oddly enough Fidel Castro  enjoying the company of Popeye.  The ..occasion was a Hallowe'en'  party for the Sechelt and; Rob:  erts: Creek Guides        * *  It was an hilarious f affair, ;  with games and an apple eating;;  contest won by Judy Chambers  r arid her-partner. A spine chilling-  ghost -stdry told in the dark with' 1  the appropriate human 'remains'  passed around for effect, amid a  chorus of shrieks and giggles. Mr  Allen added to the excitement  by taking a flashlight : photograph at the height of the confusion. .       :1 ���_��� f.-  Sandwiches and cookies Ayere  followed by impromptu skits and  mimes.

Below is  an example from Hopkins Landing area. Where it is requested,  names can be omitted so long as  the editor has the names 'of the  individuals involved.  Experts to offetfww  ���Skunks-.are regarded.as. a.jnen-  ace and the following story will  not    change    anyone's    opinion.  ��� From Hopkins .Landing comes the  . story of a skunk which found an  opening in a basement wall, and  t discovered an opening leading inside the furnace, in which housekeeping was set'.upi This was  ideal until one day the temperature dropped to a low and set  the furnace into action. The  skunk also. Sprang into action  and the odor aided by,the mech-  *-anism of the furnace surged its  way through the hot air pipes into every corner of the house..

To many, particularly more recent residents, this somewhat  dewn-at-the-heel, weatherbeaten  building seems little more than a  necessity to be tolerated, a poor  relative .that. has always been  around and to which we have be-'  come accustorned. : k  * To others, however, it means  inuch more. To them it stands as  Concrete evidence of faith in the  future of their small bit of Canada, the fruit of honest toil and  sweat, the enduring evidencekof  unselfish effort and co-operation.  Not without pain and travail  was this project born, and not  without worry and care has it  been brought to the maturity of  28 years. Nor is bur present  faithful board the first to suffer  discouragement and question the  wisdom of trying to carry on,  lacking the support and" understanding of those of us who 'leave  it to George.'  Some   pertinent   questions    we  at official ceremony  Roberts Creek Brownie Pack  special meeting Saturday with  the Guide - Company, to which,  parents were invited, was a fly-  up ceremony for Charlene Berdahl.

Meville Lowell  After a lengthy illness Melville  Lovell of Gibsons passed away in  \ Shaughriessy hospital * on Oct. 20.  Mr: Lovell was well-known to  Gibsons residents since 1944, coming from Vancouver where he  was  born in 1896.  He served in France during  World War One and was wounded  in July 1918.. He was a member  of Royal Canadian Legion branch  1C3 and was a member of Mt. E'-  phinstone Lodge No. .130 A.F. &  A.M. He leaves his .wife, three  daughters and 12 grandchildren.

Ron Haig, representing the Royal Canadian Legion,  present owner of the camp, in  turning the establishment over to  the Scout organization, read a  .Better from the present Earl  Haig in which he granted the use  of the name with the hope the  camp would' be a success in  Scout hands. - '���' ���  Officers of Mt. f Elphinstone  council were sworn in by the regional commissioner, George W.

Chimney fire  At 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct.  24, Sechelt's Volunteer Fire Brigade was called to a fire at the  home of Mr. Bain at the end of  the Old School Road, West Sechelt. The.fire was confined to  the,upper part of the house and  the yattic sustained considerable  damage. Apparently the fire was  caused by a defective chimney.  Firemen were on the scene for  two hours. ��� ���-������  At midnight the same day the  ambulance was called to an accident near Secret Cove.  Incidentally it would appear the  area is well on the way to an annual record for fires. To date  there have been 21 calls to fires,  excluding ambulance calls.'

Norman Rudolph, last year's  district commissioner and reelected for another year, presented Mr. Smart with an axe donated by Scout members to replace  one.he had lost during a camping  trip. Mr. Smart was also given  plenty of advice on the care and  use of axes.  Norman Rudolph, reporting on  the year's activities of the district declared there were 88  meetings with an attendance of  1,056, also the annual picnic drew  a total of 150. The financial report, presented by Robert Holden, revealed .the district to be  on a sound financial footing.  Gordon Taylor, retiring chairman, in giving a report on last  year's operations said the year  started somewhat uncertainly but  due to the wonderful support given by various people the year  ended successfully. The area contained 89 Cubs and 44 Scouts  with 17 Seouters. These were divided as follows: Gibsons, 5a  Cubs, 28 Scouts and 10 Seouters;  Roberts Creek, 14 Cubs, nine  Scouts.and four Seouters and Pori  Mellonj 20 Cubs, seven Scouts and  three Seouters.  One of the year's highlights  was the joining of the new regional organization, Mr. Taylor  said. Later Fred Huish, regional  field commissioner announced  the name of the new region would  be the Vancouver Coast region  and would cover the area from  Richmond to Powell River.  Mr. Smart in complimenting  the district on its work said the  Mt. Elphinstone district showed  a fine example of enthusiasm.  Reports from this area showed .  Scouting in good shape with progress recorded in general training.  Chairman Beeman said Seouters deserved a hearty vote of  thanks for the work they had  done during the year and also  added praise for the efforts of  the ladies auxiliaries. Towards  the end of the meeting certificates for qualification in the basic training course for pack  Scouts were awarded Bonnie Anderson and Ron Yaegar.  Refreshments served by members of the auxiliary concluded  the meeting.  might ask ourselves are, how can  a building exist without funds to  maintain it? Can" we pay taxes,,  insurance, light and fuel bills  for our own homes out of thin  air and can we expect to support  the hail the same way? How can  we raise at a minimum some $500  a year to keep the building alive;  without an auxiliary of some sort  to raise the money? Should we  expect the board to also raise  the money as well as handle tha  business?  We hear on all sides that the  rentals are too high.

Gibsons district Fall Fair, for many, many years has been held  together by a woman who has given her best in real hard work, year  after year. Without her the fair quite possibly could not have been  the success it has been. Few people would deny this.  Mrs. M. Lefeuvre, the secretary-treasurer of what is now known  as the Sunshine Coast Fall Fair, is the individual who. has, with hard  ���work, kept the fair really moving. This does not discount in any sense  the hard work year by year fair committee members have done. Mrs.  Lefeuvre deserves every bit of praise available for the effort she has  put forth. Her work was the main line down which the fair committee  travelled.  Her work as secretary-treasurer was as complete as any secretary-treasurer ��� could make it. Her correspondence files were never  lacking in required information and as the keeper of finances and  meeting minutes, she strived for a direct approach to her problems.  Her recording of the minutes was as concise as any person could  make them.  A-presentation to Mrs. Lefeuvre on Saturday night at a potiuck  supper she did not feel well enough to attend, was an excellent gesture by the members of the fair, committee. They gathered among  themselves funds with which to purchase a floor lamp for Mrs. Lefeuvre. It is a fitting gift because if it will let sufficient light be centred on the excellent work she has done for the fair, it will have done  its duty.  A people in trouble  X    ��� y ' -  .  If there is anyone who needs sympathy in the Cuban situation it  is the Cuban people themselves. They rejected the government of  Batista on Jan. 1, 1959, moved into a revolutionary phase which allowed Fidel Castro to obtain command of the country and cheered him  loud and long. Now they are simple pawns in an international situation which they most certainly did not forsee when Batista was thrown  out.  Their country is much worse off than it was under Batista and is  now in the grip of a political octopus which makes.Batista seem like  a reasonably decent fellow. Such is the path of revolutionary movements today. ��� v  Castro, their leader, is a puppet. All the fiery speeches he has  made in past months are so much wasted wind. On April 30 of last  year Castro was awarded the Lenin Peace prize. On May 1, 1961,  Castro declared Cuba a socialist state . Castro's gain for having accepted the Lenin Peace prize and naming Cuba a socialist state is the  uncomfortable position in which he finds himself today, just-a pawn  ���with the world's two most powerful nations ignoring him completely.  A long range view of the Cuban situation would not expect to see  Castro soaring to new heights. The Cuban foray can become too expensive for Moscow to maintain, not only dollar-wise but in a political sense, too. In the meantime the Cuban people will have to face  the facts of life and decide whether Castro has been good medicine  for them.  Letters to editor  (This is the fifth in a series of editorials explaining how a weekly newspaper functions.)  Like all newspapers, the Coast News publishes communications  or letters to the editor. They are expressions of the opinions our readers hold upon matters of public interest.  Often conditions arise in every cornmunity that make certain  phases of community welfare appear unsatisfactory; They pan often  *e rsctified simply by voicing a complaint in the local newspaper.  Such action arouses interest, creates arguments, and sometimes  Tights the real or imaginary wrongs.  The Coast News holds to the policy that the full name of the  author should be published along with his letter. If a man has an  opinion he should be willing to back it with his name. However, many  people will not have a letter published over their signature and we do  allow pen names provided the author's real name is known to the  editor.  The lotters-to-the-editor c#umn should be the editorial comment  of the subscribers. It allows everyone an effective voice in the affairs of the community. Tkus, if you have something constructive to  aay on a public matter or something you want the community to  know about, write abetter to the editor. If it is not libelous and does  not offend good taste, or is not just a rehash of previous letters, it  ���will be published.  The migration of Canada geese  ��� Branta Canadensis ��� showed  two distinct phases this year,  separated by a series of, heavy  squalls that grounded all winged  travellers.

Sundaram  (India)  Copyright���-The Upper Room  CAUSE OR CURE  Most people may be hardly  aware of it, since the charge is  imposed at the factory level, but  Ottawa collects an 11 per cent  sales tax on a wide variety of  goods. Estimated revenue from  this source for the current year  exceeds $800 million. Now, A. J.  Little, Chamber of Commerce  vice-presidenti stated at; a recent  press conference, there is a rer  port that .Ottawa is considering-  imposition of a sales tax on services.   -.'"..-  "If there is a need for more  tax money ;��� and if I were ihinis-  ��� ter ��� I would find it difficult to  ignore thisarea," said Mr. Little  "On the other hand, it absolutely appalls me that the government would be looking for increased , taxation sources. It  should .be; looking for ways to cut  : taxes." k ;:  /��� There may be more shadow  than substance to the new tax  rumor, but it still seems accepted theory in Ottawa'��� despite  the evidence of the past five  years ��� that ever-increasing  spending and taxing by the state  can re-invigorate the economy.  The government's economic advisors may argue that this pump-  priming has been the factor that  has kept recession from progressing to full-scale depression. But  it is not an unfair questjon to  ask whether high taxing and  spending was not in itself one or  the basic causes of the economic slowdown. ���C. J.

Actually, your lMefinsurance dollars are  more than an investment in your personal  seciwity and your family's. These dollars  are also an investment in Canada. They  stimulate growth and'progress and help  make this country a better place in which  to live and work.  At this moment, 9 BILLION DOLLARS  of life insurance savings are invested in  THE   LiFE   INSURANCE  Life Insurarice  ; important Canadian enterprises���through  the purchase of bonds and stocks and  through mortgages.    ...  These .hard-working dollars are helping  to finance great projects all over this  country such as pipelines, shopping centres, bridges and highways, homes, apartment and office builcfings, schools,  factories, industrial plants and power  developments. These investments create  , employment opportunities, too.  The income from these investments benefits you directly by reducing the cost of  life insurance to you and the 9 million  other Canadian policyowners.

This was done rather than  sending Christmas cards locally,  so that some less forturiate may  better enjoy his or her Christmas and possibly appreciate that;  Christ did not die in vain after  3Uk  This small group has been  growirig each passing year, so  this letter is directed to any and  all who wish to contribute in this  manner to ensure that more and  more people will have a happier and brighter Christmas as it  was intended.  This year half of the proceeds  will go to Central City Mission  and the other half to the new  hospital. ,  Those wishing to join with us,  PACIFIC WINGS LTD.

While I have seen black bear,  elk and mountain goat in the Revelstoke National .Park and Albert Canyon areas of the highway  .it is an undisputed fact by those  whq know, that the GEacier National Park part of the Rogers  Pass highway cuts -through what  has been a grizzly stronghold for  longer that man can remember.  It would seem to. me that the  letter in last week's Coast News  has the wrong angle! of this. .  It seeiris to me that this highway ..has an .unsurpassed", tourist,  attraction.  Perhaps there, are other places,  but I haven't been able to find  out about them, where a tourist  has a good chance of glimpsing;  a grizzly, who is a monarch' iri  the animal realm. But let me say  that black bear and grizzlies are  as different iri looks' and habits  as chalk frorii cheese, / arid to  gloss over the fact of the grizzlies  being in the Glacier area of the  Rogers Pass Highway is like the  ostrich hiding his head in the  sand.

SUPPLIES  Phone 885-9600 Plea for hall  - (Continued from Page 1)  absolutely necessary to" carry the  hall. Possibly then the rent would  be reduced and the profit used to  repair and refurbish the building.  Back in.'31 when the idea of  building a hali came into being,  the project seemed, an impossibility. There was jno' payroll in  these - parts and such wages as  were paid were very low: Nevertheless the work of collecting donations was begun and due time  found to be of impossible proportions and the money returned  to the donors.  In the months that followed the  need of a hall became increasingly apparent and in '32 another  campaign for funds was underway. To raise money many dances and parties were held in each  of .-the, two schools. Admission was  &mall, music free, and supper  supplied by the ladies. Although  the promotion of the- hall fund  was the primary reason for the  fun, the spirit of friendship and  co-operation in a worthwhile  cause which prevailed was more  important.  Door to door canvassing became the order of the day, and  donations came in from near and  far.  Land for the hall was donated  by the late John Roberts and the  Farmers' Institute was voted a  board.of trustees. In latter years  many have felt that the location  is poor but .at that time it was  considered the most central site.  Few families, perhaps half a  dozen, lived on the Lower Road,  with the exception of summer  campers, there was no Beach  Avenue, and the two school districts, East Roberts Creek and  West Roberts Creek, known as Elphinstone, supplied the main populace. It may be noted that these  two districts, particularly the  western, are re-populating. In the  east, Crowe Rd. alone boasts 17  children.  With the land.donated, the com.  munity became a hive of industry  some residents of Wilson ��� Creek  also f taking part. Not .an able-  bodied man refused to help in  some capacity. Not a vehicle that  was not pressed into service. It  was not unusual to see a touring  car drive "up to the. ;site to. disgorge a load of. building supplies,  or a rider, on horseback sling off  ay bag! of hails; kf/f'���':..  :��� Voluntary, labor'with an initial  sum of $100 built the sills and first  floor in. 1932 and then, funds exhausted, : the work remained at a  standstill until the ; fall of 733  when -again- camef the -tmusic * of -  saws and hammers as.work was  resumed, y >k  The hall was completed and "officially opened on May 24, 1934,  and what a   day. of celebration  Printed Pattern  ^1R��M^1in^  Our   new   wrap - and - button  jumper skips gaily off to, school  ;with its Peter Pan blouse.

What  an  accomplishment for a mere hand.  ful of people with negligible  funds and little spare time from  the carving of their own homes  in the wilderness. ���  . One hundred forty dollars were  taken in at that first dance. The  music was supplied by Mrs.  Horsely, W.> Marlow and Elsie  Steinbrunner. Admission to the  hall was 25c for men and cake or  sandwiches for the ladies. Tables  sagged with the weight of edibles,  cakes made with new butter and  iced .with" inch-thick whipped  cream, home made bread sand-'  wiches of home-cured ham and  home-grown -and made pickles.  No stint, no weight watching ���  and no bulges either.  To the hall in those days that  followed came Pop, Mom and the  -kids, frequently on foot, a cake  in one hand, a coal-oil lantern in  another and a babe in arms, the  latter wrapped in a coat and put  to sleep on a bench.  The hall prospered and it was  - not long before the kitchen was  \ added, this too erected by vdlun--  tary labor.  In 1944 the hall board, with  substantial help from the Players' Club, built on a good sized  stage which was used for the first  time on  May 27, 1944.. >  '��� The hall has had a variety of  uses. Private parties and showers'^  political meetings, club-meetings,?  dances of Mil kinds,-the long-for-;;.  gotten Horticulture Society with'  its   UBC   guest   speakers,    card  games, carnivals, public'dinners,  private  dinners,  bingo, ., Players''  Club rehearsals, badminton, Pro.  rec,   Teentown  affairs,   athletics  and Christmas concerts. Has  it  now outgrown its usefulness?  In April 1950 there was an in  crease in rent rates as business  began to fall off and again in  January 1953. Now .the hall funds  are in.another slump which presents the question ��� increase, the  rent rates to a non-renting pub-  ��� ��� lie,- or fold up?  There  is   an   alternative.    We  might form a committee to work  ' for the hall , instead   of   sitting  back and letting George do it, or .  criticising   those   who    do,    and  , have,   served  faithfully   on   thi*  and past boards.   .  One board was' responsible for  {<the siding ^on-the walls and the  ..shiny new,paint on chairs and tables. Another h*ad a. pressure  pump bought and installed; Wash  - rooms have been added and ah oil  stove replaces the wood stove in  ' the kitchen. At'one time a wood*  heater hugged one corner of the  hall and around it members   of  the badminton club  then in full  Coast News, Nov.  1,   1962.  swing sat with their knitting while  waiting for their turn to play.  Constant and patient effort has  been made by each board to im-  -.prove the;hall,and to keep it in  repair. Now, in spite of all effort,  taxes are delinquent/the piano  needs burning or replacing,  funds are required for various  expenses.  Shall we sit idly by and complain ��� or get on with the job?  The hall has been the means of  raising funds for most other organizations; for, a change let's  get together and support ,the hall.  MICKEY COE  Member  Professional Salesmen's  Club  Falcon     .
