Postcards were sent but  announcing two meetings.  More than 2Q0 post-cards ?were  mailed. Less than 100 :for?prie  meeting and more than ??i00  for the other.

High school for scholars  and everyone else who wants  to purchase one or :more copies.   .  The book which will be the  only specific publication in  Gibsons Centennial year will  be perhaps the first historical  publication of its kind to be  published in this area.  It will be the sort of book  one could send to friends who  have lived here or who know  something about the area. It is  the sort of book some organization should take in hand to  see that every worthy pioneer  of this area has a copy. It is  also the sort of book that  should go into archives all over  the country. It will .become a  source book of information  about the area.  The idea the whole school  is working on the turning out  of this publication is not correct. There is a band of seniors and others. 12 in number,  at the school who are putting  in a considerable amount of  work on it.  To help' them out if anyone  has copies of pictures of the  little old log school house in  Gibsons, one of oxen logging,  one of Mrs. Lucy Smih and  also one of the old school  which used to be on Marine  Drive in Gibsons, those in  charge at Elphinstone High  would certainly welcome them  for use in the Centennial  edition.  BASKETBALL  The Basketball schedule at  Elphinstone High gym Friday  night will see two games, the  first starting at 7.30 p.m. and  the second at 8.30 o'clock  against Pender Harbour.

More gohhledego ok  One wonders what premiers an<| finance department men  in other provinces must think when' they."read of Premier Bennett's forays into the realm of finance as British Columbia's  minister of finance.. To the average layman with just a smattering of financial understanding it must appear weird that a department of finance consisting of supposedly good men, who understand their business, should come up with the idea that somewhere along the line a mistake was made which resulted in a  small sum being transposed into a whopping surplus amount.  To say the least ��� it's fantastic.   ,  To look at it another way would be to suggest the department of finance over which Mr. Bennett presides is not competent and should be replaced by more competent individuals.  There is still another way and that is to suggest Mr. Bennett is  playing game's.  In view of the fact school boards have to seek funds  through banks and pay interest on the money which was to have  been provided by the provincial government, in order to meet  commitments and that to practically everyone's knowledge in this  area, roads department men have been laid off, talk of a surplus  at this time does leave the voter wondering whether Mr. Bennett's financial talk is just plain gobbledegook.  One can almost hear from east of the Rockies, including  Alberta, that stronghold of orthodox financing based on oil dug;  out by someone else, the echoing remark: "What a strange man  is this Mr. Bennett!"  Extravagance helps?  According to a recent survey made by the Gallup Poll of  Canada, more than two Canadians in three believe that, over  the past ten years, their ^incomes have not kept pace with rising  prices: Prosperity is still around the corner for them, <and the  corner seems to be farther away than ever.  'Statistics do not confirm this belief: The latest available  index of weekly earnings, for August, 1957, is 155.7 compared  with the base figure of 100 for 1949. The consumer price index  has risen during the same period from 100 to 122.6. Since both  index numbers are compiled py the Dominion Bureau of Statistics from samples taken across the country, they should be a  fair reflection of actual conditions. Some incomes may not have  kept pace with prices, but it does not seem credible that two  thirds of them have not, no matter what the earners may think,  in considering the answers given to the Gallup questioners, some allowance should toe made for trie human fcraits of pessimism and optimism. Pessimism deters a, person from admitting  to others or to himself that- he is really more prosperpus- than he  used to be, for fear that the envious gods will visit disaster upon  him. Optimism impels him to increase his. standard of living as  his wages increase, sometimes beyond -the point that his actual  wages justify. For example, a wage earner who thought some  years ago that he could not afford a car probably owns one now  and the cost of gasoline and repairs has become part of his family budget. If his family has increased in size, he is spending more  on food, clothing and shelter. He has probably increased his insurance premiums. If he buys his car or washing machine or television set on the instalment plan, he has added tp his budget  some interest charges that are not computed in arriving at a figure for the consumer price index. , 4  And then there are the taxes, of which the average wage  * earner seldom thinks. He is paying more pf his earnings to the  government than he did ten years ago, both because he is earning  more and because he is in a higher tax bracket? But he pays attention only to his take-home pay and does not realize that he _  is forced to share his prosperity with the many beneficiaries of.  government handouts here and abroad.  In spite of the statistics, there is much to be said for his  impression that he isn't getting ahead very fast, but he is wrong  in blaming that on high prices. Some blame attaches to himself  and much to the .extravagance of governments. ���-Printed Word.  country. Widespread merry-making begins on New Year's Eye  with house parties, dinner dances and special theatre entertainments. A customary feature ,of  the. occasion, that suggests the  Scottish contribution to the observance, is the singing at midnight of "Auld Lang Syne". This  has been handed down from  the Scottish celebration of "Hogmanay". Throughout the whole  of Canada, New Year's Day is a  day for faihily re-union and for  the carrying on of the Christmas  festivities.  Who established the iirst circulating library on the Pacific  Slope?  Donald Manson, a fur-trader  from Scotland established the  first circulating library-on the  Pacific Slope, when he was in  charge of Fort McLoughlin  from 1834-39. He had entered  the service of the Hudson's  Bay Co. iri 1817 and was employed in the English' River  district and on the South Saskatchewan but later he was  transferred to the Columbia  district where he helped to establish Fort Langley. He was  at Fort Vancouver, and Fort  (Simpson and finally as a chief  trader he was placed in charge  of the New Caledonia district,  with . headquarters at JStuart  Lake.  6& Hj#  Prepared by the.Research Staff, pi.  ENCYtLOPEDU  CANADIAN A  What is the "Guignolee"?  The "Guignolee" is the custom  of groups of young men, the  "Guignoleux", to dress in, gay attire and to go from house  to house singing and begging  gifts for the poor. This is  the traditional celebration of  French Canada and has been carried on for many years on New  Year's Eve. New Year's Day is  the time for paying calls on.  friends and neighbours _and dor  asking the blessing of the head  of the family. The early Governors held a public reception or  levee for the men of the community on New Year's morning,  a custom that has been preserved down to the present day by  the Governor-General and by the,  Lieutenants-Governors.  While the celebration of New  Year's Day is of less significance  in English Canada than in  French Canada, it is a public  holiday ~ throughout   the   whole  tory of railways but was presenting the obvious present picture.

He said fof a contemporary,     Addison, "Addison 'thinks-  clearly but   very lightly." Johnson liked men who could make  up    their    minds    emphatically.  Here    is    a story about, a man  whom Johnson would have liked  immensely. "  During the first three hundred?  years of its history there w^a.3.  bitter persecution of Christianity,  and thousands- of devout' people  suffered, many of. them being  tortured to death? This is'not to  be wondered at considering the  age in? ..which these events- -took  place. TlT& coming of Christianity  meant/the overthrow of heathen  systems, of religion, and so whenever there was a pagan festival  there was a fanatical and savage  wave of animosity against Christian believers. ���  V      * '. 'fi    'fi  ���    ������.'/  Often in crowded arenas the  spectators watched Christians being torn limb from limb by'wiid  beasts, and while their heroic  courage frequently impressed the  onlookers, the lust for bjood prevailed as the frenzied crowds  shouted: "Away with, the athe- .  ists." . .  Among the many who showed  almost unbelievable courage was  a young. Roman named Adrian.  He was a Praetorian Guard during the reign of Emperor Gal-  eriuS Maximian, a reign characterized by miuch savage and  brutal persecution of Christians.  In AD. 280 Adrian was twenty-  eight years of age and his skillv  and daring as a soldier had led  to ��� one promotion after another,  like the Apostle Paul many  years earlier, he had been zealous in the persecution >ef those  Vho followed Jesus and for tlit  same reason��� he believed they  were a menace..But the calmness  and courage of those he was sent  to torture made a deep impression upon him. There was nothingi y-^Ung Adriani^admired so?  liiuch as fortitude under suffering", and here among these Chris-?,  tians he came face to face, with  Printed Pattern  -._>*  9134  ONE  SIZE   _x     MEDIUM  Jiffy-Cut Printed Pattern.

How  great a struggle went on in the  heart of Adrian we do not know.  He was still young and his posi-  . tion well established. No doubt  ' his family was proud of-a record  so outstanding and a future so  promising.  >4* rfi rfi  . To one of the Christians being  [tortured he said: "V/hat gives  you this strength and joy in <the  midst of your sufferings?"  "Our Lord Jesus Christ, in  whom we believe," the martyr  replied.  At that moment Adrian made  a swift- and important decision. .  He stepped up to where the heathen judges sat and said:  "Put  down my name among those to  be tortured. I also, shall become  a Christian."  Adrian lived for twenty-three  years after his conversion. He  suffered much, but his was a  magnificent record, for never  once did he flinch in his loyalty  to Christ. ' In A.D. 303 he was  slain at Nicomedia. His limbs  were cut from his body on an  anvil, and he was then beheaded.  For seventeen centuries he has  been the patron saint of soldiers,  who remember his fearless declaration:  "Put down my name."

Marine will be replaced by  Mutual 3 or 5, Pacific by Mutual 1, Tatlow by Mutual 4,  Willow by Yukon 7 and York  by Yukon 8. The last four digits of existing numbers will  remain the same; the only  change will be the new prefix  and the additional figure, e.g.,  Marine 6999 to Mutual 5-6999.  Changing of dial cards on all  telephones is now underway,  according to telephone officials  On the same day, the final  12,000 phones in the Dexter  manual exchange will be converted to the $7,500,000 Hemlock automatic system. Approximately 10,000 Dexter phones  Iwere switched over to Hemlock last May. Once the largest  manual exchange in the B.C.  Telephone Company system,  Dexter will completely disappear with the final cut to dial,  and completely new numbers  will be assigned with Hemlock  1 or Hemlock 3 prefixes.  The telephone number alterations ;are part of the Company's plan to convert the entire Greater Vancouver area to  ''two-fiver" numbering in .the  next five years as an essential  part of the Canada-U.S. distance dialling program.  HELP FIRE VICTIM  After the home of Charles  Clowry? burned, down some  -'time ago on the North Road,  names of various, people^ who  helped him were given the  Coast News. These names included Mr. ��� and Mrs. J. Stewart, Mrs. G. Brown, Mrs. N.  Solnik and Mrs. Jessie Christiansen. He was also given the  use of a one-room shack and  donors supplied groceries,  utensils and clothing.  anuary  By   JAMES   SINCLAIR,   M.P.  The most interesting political event in Ottawa in the last  fortnight has been the National Liberal convention to select  a new leader and to draft a  program for the future. Since  this event received the widest  press, radio and TV coverage  of any Canadian convention I  need scarcely comment on it.  I voted for Lester Pearson,  as I believe that the qualities  which made him the outstanding Canadian in 'world affairs,  president of the General Assembly of the United Nations  and Nobel Peace prize winner,  will be of even greater value  to Canada in our domestic affairs.  *       >J��       *  Parliament plods slowly on.  The short fall session which  was expected to end before  Christmas now will last well,  on into February. The hours  of sitting in Parliament are  long, 11 o'clock in the morn^  ing until 10 at night on ,the  week days and 11 to 6 on Saturdays. On top of that members have to attend parliamentary committees, answer mail  from their ridings, and visit  government departments on  behalf of constituents. All of  us will be, glad to return home  to our families at the end of  the session.  The legislation which has  caused the most delay has  been a bill for agricultural sup  port prices. The Liberal government had enacted Farm  and Fisheries Pfricte ��� Suppjbr't ���  Acts to give the farmer and  the ��� .fishermen the same sort  of protection in the event of  unmarketable surpluses that  minimum wage laws give the  industrial worker in times of  surplus labor. In times of distress farmers and fishermen  receive deficiency payments to  keep  them  from   bankruptcy.  <s\..  *       #  Samuel   Barkley  Samuel Barkley who lived  for some years in Roberts  Greek area passed awsy Fri- >  day Jan. 7 in King's Daughters Hospital, Duncan, after a  few days  critical  illness. :  From Roberts Creek he moved with his son and family tpf  Vancouver island.

'  LUSITANIA MEDAL  A medal forecasting the  sinking of the Lusitania has  turned up at; Roberts Creek.  The owner'who brought it in  to the Coast News prefers, to  remain anonymous. The medal he has is a replica of the  original >and apparently there  are many available. The replica carries an official explanation as to why it was cast and  the fact it .was" a replica.  The payments were generally at prices near the actual  cost* of production, so there  was no incentive to gb on producing crops and catches for  which there was no good market. There was a 200 million  dollar revolving fund to support' farm prices and 25 mil- ,  lion to support fishery prices.  During my time as minister, of  fisheries, the latter fund hsfd'  seldom to be used because fish  markets Were good.   \.  The farmers of Canada were  dissatisfied with this program  because of the U.S. farm price  support' program. The American government paicV support  prices so high that the farmer  not only got back his cost of  production but made a good  profit selling his crops to the  government, even, though the  government could find no market. He was, therefore, encouraged to * produce more and  more, and so enormous crop  surpluses were acquired by the  government at the taxpayers'  expense.  *    *    #  The Conservative party in  the electioni campaign promised the Canadian'farmers a similar program.- When the legislation was produced in parliament, it fell far short of the,  farmers' expectations, since it  only provided a guaranteed  floor price of 80% of the average price over the last three  years ��� which the farmers  pointed out were the three  worst years since the war. The  bill was amended to rnake the  80% average over the last ten ��  years, but this too is far short  of what the farmers had been  led to expect. This is the reason debate has been so prolonged.  There are fdw farmers in  Coast-Capilano so the bill may-  not seem, to be too important.  We are ail consumers, however  and we all know the fantastic  cost to the American tax payers of their farm' support program. We want to see a healthy  Canadian agricultural industry  where farmers have some protection against disastrous  drop? in prices ��� but as consumers we do not want to  have their prices bolstered up  to an uneconomic level with  public funds. I believe the flexible price support program, of  the Liberal government better  for Canada than the so-called  parity program of this Conservative bill.

SCOTT'S SCRAP BOOK  ��� When Dave Reeg. presented  Gibsons Village Commission  with the gavel he had used for  many years he commented on  the standard of village commissioners Gibsons has been  favored with. Here are his remarks made recently when the  presentation was made.  "We all realize this is an unprecedented meeting. It's the  first one in our . centennial  year and the first one since the  new municipal act decreed that  all chairmen had to* be elected  by ratepayers..  "We, like a number of other  villages put our chairman in  by acclamation. Making due allowance for political apathy, I  feel confident that the good  service rendered by the chairman was the reason for the  ' acclamation. We have had few  elections in the last years, further testimony to the good  work of the* council. ���������'  "May I, Mr. Chairman,  speaking for your many good  friends, mark this occasion in a  simple way.  The British Parliament,   Ottawa and Victoria  -have   their   maces   and   mace  bearers ��� we can well rftall  the decorous procession when  the late Jerry McGeer wearing  the gold   chain  and robes of"  office   was   preceded   by   the  stately   mace   bearer "to   tjie  ���council chamber. I am not bearing any mace but I have here  a gavel. Needless to state there  is little value  attached to  it,  therefore, I would ask you to  think of it in its symbolic sense  "This gavel in the- last half  century has been in the hands  of   chairmen   presiding   over.  many distinguished gatherings.  You will not need any mace to  keep   order   in   this chamber,  so  I  feel ,it  fitting that this  gavel, rather than lay idle in  my home should be used here,  in this historic chamber, gateway   to   the  'Sunshine   Coast.  'Congratulations and best wishes Mr. Chairman to your worthy secretary,  fellow commissioners and yourself.

Mr. Irwin,our previous speaker had resigned last  year to contest a riding in the  1957 federal election. After  Mr. Hugh Shantz (SC-North  Okanagan) was nominated as  the new speaker by Mr. Bennett and Mr. Strachan he showed the traditional reluctance to  take his seat. He had to be  "pulled" to the Speaker's chair  by Mr.'.Bennett and Mr. Strachan taking him firmly by the  arms and escorting him to the  speaker's dais. *  This is to continue the ancient tradition that being the  speaker was a pretty risky business in bygone days, since the  speaker had to? transmit the  commons opinions to the king,  which, if not to the king's liking, pould be a risky business.  *  *  Even being a merriber in  those days was risky. One of  the last acts of King Charles,  before he lost his head, was to  send an armed band to the  House of Commons looking for  five members who had been  obstructingithe king's business.  Fortunatelv they had been  forewarned and fled before the  arrival of thfe king's men.  The Bar of the House dates  from that incident because the  beleaguered House ordered a  bar to be placed at the door of  the Commons to prevent fur- ?  ther intimlidation- The chief  hazard these days for a member? is irate constituents.

'',.-;���  The CCF took emergency  action Friday to bring tShej  question of unemployment before the Legislature. This was  provoked in part by the visit  to the CCF caucus of a committee from Fernie. The committee of miners, led*by Mayor  James White, had come to  plead with the government for.  assistance after the Crows Nest  Mining company had announced that on Jan. 31 they /frere  closing the Elk River Collieries at Fernie .This Will turn  Fernie into a ghost town.  '������.�����*.' ��� *i��   - ��S�����'������-.-  It was one of the most emotionally moving situations I  have been in since elected as  local member.. Here was a  group of workers fighting for  the survival of their town. We  were told that many miners"  had recently built mortgaged  homes in Fernie and now their  homes are only worth what the  dismantled fixtures will bring.  When a mine on which a whole ��'  town depends for its livelihood closes down it is a social  catastrophe.  It is interesting to note that  the decision to elbsef the mine  was made by the directors,  meeting in. Seattle, who announced on Jan. 15 that the  mine was going to shut down  on Jan. 30. There was no "ifs"  or "buts." The mine is going to  shut down completely at the  end of the month, and that is  that.     -  It should remind us of the  vital decisions that industry  can take which affect every  one of us.; Local people have,  nothing whatsoever; to say  about the matter.  the best brews in the world  come from.

Logging was going strong'on
Sechelt    Inlet    in    the   early
1900's and in. 1905 Bert Whitaker  started  with  horseteams
and then brought in the> first
steam   donkey   from   Seattle.
The  prophets  said .Whitaker!
would go broke  in  a  month
with  these  new   fangled   machines   but   in   a   very   short
while Bert had five camps in
full operation on the Sechelt
Inlet,   each  camp   using   two
yarders. Logging was good and
operations comparatively cheap
with loggers   earning^ $2   per
day approximately and everyone very happy and contented.
About 1910 Bert Whitaker
formed the Sechelt Steamship
Co. The SS Tartar?was brought
from the. old country around
the horn by Captain Polking-
fcorn. The S!S Sechelt bought in
Puget Sound; was formerly the

When- the Sechelt Steamships
started the Union Steamships
did not like it at all and eventually a rate war started he-
v- tween the two companies with
the result ^ou could get a trip
from Vancouver to Sechelt for
25 cents or 45 cents return trip
Bert survived this but took a
terrible beating when he tried
to break toe Canadian Pacifie

The end of . 1913 or early
1914 Bert Whitaker decided to
sell £ots 303 and>304 wjiich is
now the Village of Sechelt and
had an offer from the firm of
Palmer, Burmeister and Von
Gravenitz for $125,000 and the
deal was made with Mr. Whitaker receiving $25,000 cash
and the balance of $100,000 to s
be paid in two years at $50,--
000. each year.
Bert   received   his   $25,000'
cash  and Mrs.  Whitaker and(
himself took a well earned hoi-'
iday   in   Europe.  They   came
back after the first war had
started,   expecting    the   first
payment of $50,000 but Burmeister   and   Von   Gravenitz,
being Germans were interned .■.,..
for   safety   and   Mr.   Palmer
tried to carry on with the business and  keep Sechelt  going
but it was impossible and eventually  Mr.   Whitaker was   in
possession of Lots 303 and 304
The place had run down so
much during the war years its
was next to impossible to bring
it back to standard. Most of
the visitors who used to summer in .'Sechelt were either?
overseas in the forces or working on war jobs and holidays
did'? not  concern   them.   Bert
worked hard to try and save
his interests but eventualy Sechelt was sold to Union Steamships Ltd. I believe the Union.
Steamships paid $35,000 to the
Credit Men's Trust of - Vancouver, B.C. for all the holdings
including cottages, store, hotel
and all improvements which
. had been done by Mr. Whita-
Up to this time Sechelt had
a daily service from Vancouver. The S.S. Santa Marie and
S.S.   Selma  made   daily  trips
and  both   arrived   at   Sechelt
wharf at noon each, day,  one
going to Vancouver, the other
on its way to Pender Harbour?
They were splendid little ships
and it was a pleasure to travel
on them. *
The Union Steamships Ltd.
gave a good service in those
aays with  such ships   as  the •
Capilano,  Lady  Cecilia,  Lady
Cynthia, Cheloshin and during
the summer the Lady Alexandra.   Mr.   Harold Brown  was  .
president and manager of the
Union    Steamships    in    those
days and Sechelt again started
to take on anew look. In 1928
the late Bertie Hackett was appointed Estates Manager, taking over from the late George
Amah and E.S.  Clayton, now
owner-manager   of    the   Tom '
Boy at Sechelt was appointed

hard for the Union S.S. Ltd.,

ahead immediately. Every cottage was filled and the Hotel

days and  everyone was  in  a

district   and   you   could * purr

Stecher and Horowitz, the  two youthful Steinway adepts  Who will perform iri Elphinstone High School on Feb. .7  8 p.m., are, in the public mind  one entity ������ a two-piano team.  In a, large portion of the public mind, they comprise the  best young two:piano team on  the American concert stage.  However, Melvin Stecher and  Norman Horowitz are also two  separate, and separately interesting individuals.       .  The two met at the piano  studio of Hedy Spielter in November, 1949. .Melvin was already there; Norman just started. Stecher and Horowitz, the  team, came into being six  months later. Individual, non-  musical, idiosyncracies, penchants and talents dictated the  division of non-performing duties.

Later the ship moved up river  to Montreal for two weeks? stay,  then returned to Halifax. When  the Spanish-American War started his ship proceeded to Havana  to bring out British subjects who  wanted to leave the country.  Next call was Vera Cruz, Mexico,  and Puerto Rico; and then?Tre*  turned to Port Royal. He left  for England 1899, after completing three years service on the  Wesib Indies station.
