He expects there will be  about 100 telephones installed  in the area and that the service will be tied into the Gib-  CCF Union  f  conrerence  A CCF.-Trade Unions Conference will be held at Gibsons  on Nov.. 15 and 16 at Danny's  Motel, starting at 10 a.m.  The conference "will draw  C.C:F. and Trade Union delegates, from the constituencies  of Lillooet, , Mackenzie and-  North Vancouver to discuss the  advisability of forming.a-'new  political party in Canada. No  decision will be made .at? this,  conference, but there will be  a free exchange of views between delegates. \  The conference is being held  pursuant to resolutions passed  both at the national and provincial level of both the CCF.  party and the Canadian Labour  Congress. ���      _  Tony Gargrave, M.L.A., conference co-ordinator, said,  ���'This conference may be the  fore-runner of a new political  alignment in Canada. It may  well produce the only fundamental change in Canadian  pbiitics since tlie " 1930's." :-'--'���e  Over 100 delegates, and visiting dignitaries will assemble  at the Gibsrans conference. Hazen Argue M.P., the CCF.  parliamentary leader at Ottawa, will be at the conference  to address a public banquet  Saturday evening at 7 p.m.  The public will be invited tq  attend the banquet which will  be the high-light of the conference.  s  ome room for  f.  b.  more members  Overture Concerts Association reports room for a few  more members for this season's  concerts.  At the last executive meeting the situation was analyzed  and it was revealed that the  number of members obtained  was up to par but some more  could be included in the membership to help obtain the best  possible type of artists for the  concerts. First concert will be  the Chanticleers quartet in the  High .School Auditorium,  Thurs., Nov. 27.      '  POSTPONEMENT  Owing to the Order of Eastern Star requiring the School  Hall Thursday night to prepare for the Friday bazaar,  there will be no Welfare Fund  bingo Thursday night.

This, Mr. Abrams said, would  be pleasing to merchants of  Gibsons who, he added, would  be getting automatic phone  service by June 1960 when  equipment now on order would  be available.  At Sept. 1 there were 830  through the Gibsons exchange  and wi.h additions between  now and the first of the year  it is expected there' will be  about 940 to. 950 phones  through' Gibsons 'exchange.  Businessmen will welcome  the fact there will not be a toll  charge" between Gibsons and  Port Mellon. At present there  are only nine telephones on the  line to and in Port Mellon, Mr.  Abrams said. He was accompanied by Robert Robertson of  Mr. Abrams' office in North  Vancouver. Reason for their  appearing before- the' village  commission was to get the village OK on the new service.  This was  given   unanimously.  ust elect  to board  Under    the   revised   Public  Schoolsi act the village municipality is now responsible for  election pf one village representative to the School Board,,  so stated a letter from the department of education in Victoria . which was read to Gib-  "Z sohs^Hlage Commission Txxes-  - day night.  The letter also stated that  owing to this year being a  transitional year between the  former and present system it  was advisable to let the pres-.  ent representative for the village, Mrs. A.E. Ritchey, continue as representative until the  end of December of 1959. After  that date, representatives will  have to be elected.  Accounts totalling $190.62  were passed, $63.25 for .Workmen's Compensation costs,  $68.84 for.. water, $52.38 for  general expenses and $6.15 for  roads.  Nurses plan  panel discussion  The second meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Registered  Nurses group took place Oct.  28 in the Public Health office,'  Gbsons, with 16 nurses present  A lively discussion took place  on programs for future meetings.  The next meeting will be  held Tues., Nov. 25 at the Sechelt Elementary School at 8  p.m. The program to ;be presented will be a panel discuss-  sion on the problems and disposition of the mentally retarded child."  Speakers will be two members of the staff of Woodlands  School for Retarded Children  at New Westmnster, and two  . members from Vancouver of  the 'Provincial Association, for  " Retarded Children. The public  is urged to attend this meeting  to hear these speakers.  Scouts annual meeting  Scout leaders, friends and  prominent citizens will be guests  of Sunshine Coast Scouts and  Cubs at the annual dinner meeting and social evening "jn Dan-  ney's Potlach Room, Nov. 21 at  7:30 p.m.  Ebitertainment will be provided while a guest speaker will  Mghlight the gathering.  In a report to the monthly  meeting of the council Les Chamberlin revealed plans to contact  the department of recreation and,  ���conservation for a Scout camp  site "somewhere along the shores  of .Salci-iaw Lake."  Mr. Chamberlin said there is  a possibility the government still  owns land along the lake which  could be utilized as a site.  Scouts and cubs for the next  year or two will make summer  camps wherever it is feasible.  "Burt,"' said Mr. Chamberlin, "wo  have to continue our search for  a permanent site."  Don McNab and Norman Burley of Seehelt were appointed a  committee in charge of entertainment for the annual meeting.  Ray Rhodes and Ray Kruse  were representatives from the  Kiwanis Club.    .  More than $600,000 has gone  into building operations along  the Sunshine. Coast to the end  of September this year and  most of it into new homes.  This figure is the result of a  B.C. Electric survey in the'villages of Sechelt and Gibsons  and the unorganized territories  adjacent: The figure does not  include improvements made at  the pulp mill in Port Mellon  operated by Canadian Forest  Products.  For the nine months of the  year $72,300 was spent on  building in Sechelt, $79,028 in  Gibsons and $507,000 in the unorganized s area   from  Hopkins  tanding to". Pender Harbour  .area. All but about $150,000  $f this has gone into the building of homes ranging from  '$5,000 to $10,000 or more. In  the unorganized area alone  ��452,000 was spent on new  homes.  '���:: The area is moving ahead so  fast the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are reported tp be  considering building headquarters at two points in the area.  Another progress indication is  extension of Halfmoon Bay rural mail service from three  times a week to daily and probable commencement of rural  i^-iail service in the area between Sechelt and Halfmoon  Bay.  Harbor improvements  outlined hu minister  The minsiter of public works  Hon. Howard C Green, has announced that a contract for  $84,785.98 had been awarded  to Greenlees Piledriving Company Limited of Vancouver for  harbour improvements at Gibsons Landing. The company  submitted the lowest bid on the  project in response to the department's advertising for public tenders. Specified completion date is June-22, 1959.  Two 9 ft. by 40, ft. log floats  and 12 mooring piles and seven  fender piles will be removed  from the existing work. An  area 50 feet wide by 460 feet  long will be dredged to a depth  8 feet below local low water.?'  A vertical sheathing  break-  Fi  ire ourns  boat works  Garden Bay Boat Works,  owned by H.J. Tnsley was completely destroyed by fire about  9 o'clock Saturday evening.  The loss is reported to be in  the region of $15,000.  Fire is believed to have started in the machine shop section  but it is not known how flames  broke out. Some tools were  saved but the building was destroyed thus putting five men  out of work.  . When the. fire broke out a  bean supper and bingo session  were underway in Madeira  Park Hall. Some 40 persons  forgot their bingo and jumped  aboard the Columbia Mission  boat John Antle along with  Canon Greene and hurried  over to help keep the fire under control. Beyond getting out  some hand tools and suchlike,  the rest of the equipment and  building was destroyed.  Mr. Insley, proprietor, is not  yet' ready to make an announcement concerning future operations:  Hefty steer  falls in well  "Ding, Dong, Dell, Pussy���'s  in the well." Only this time'it  wasn't pussy but a hefty steer.  "Who put him in?" Well he  didn't tell us. Anyway into it  he fell about nine o'clock on  Thursday. Twenty feet down he  went with his tootsies in six  inches of mud and water.  "Who pulled him out?" Not  little Johnny Stout. The RCMP  officer decided that Inspector  Chamberlin of the S-P.C.A.  would know what to do and  promptly phoned for him. He  and his.two helpers, Len Wray  and George Webb were hampered by the darkness and lack  of available equipment and  seeing that the animal had  room to stand and seemed reasonably comfortable reluctantly left the scene at 12:45 a.m.  Next morning bright and  , early back they went and with  the aid of Eric Inglis' logging  hoist out he came and sauntered nonchalantly away, apparently none the worse for a harrowing experience.

Special service  at Port Mellon  Fourth annual observance of  the dedication of Port Mellon  Community church will be held  Sunday at 7:30 p.m.  Rev. David Donaldson, Gibson Memorial United Church,  will take charge of the service,  assisted by Rev. 'H.J. Bevan  who will deliver the sermon,  Rev. E.F. Kemp who will take  the bible reading and Canon  HU. Oswald of St.' Bartholo-  , mew's Anglican church will  offer prayers. Both Mr. Bevan  and Mr. Kemp are retired  United Church ministers who  enducted services in the Port  Mellon church.  The congregation through the  church board invites the general public-to this-service.  Lounge opens  An innovation on the Sunshine Coast is offered with the  opening by the Peninsula Hotel at Gibsons of a new cocktail lounge and banquet room.  With the latter, the "hotel is  now equipped to handle dinners for clubs and organizations.  Tlie new lounge is tastefully  decorated in soft shades with  indirect lighting. It seats 40  people. '  Here are the building figures  as   collated  monthly  by   B.C.  Electric:  January $106,000  February 55,100  March 110,000  April 55,500  May 65,300  June 45,020  July 76,150  August 56,900  September 88,350  Total $658,320  It would appear from the figures that more building is  started in the first three  months, January to March  than in the second three  months from April to June.  Total for the first three months  is $271,100 and for the second  three months $165,820. For the  third quarter July, August and  September the total was $221,-  400. The figure for the last  quarter, October, November  figure for the year to beyond  and December should bring the  the $800,000 mark.  One must also consider the  money spent in the furnishing  of new homes including equipment. This would mean 1-hat  close to $800,000 will, have  been spent, mainly in home  building along the Sunshine  Coast this year.   - ?"  The annual meeting of Mt.  EJphinstone Ski Club will be  held at the home of D.G. Poole  in Granthams Landing, Wed.,  Nov. 19 at 8 p.m.  Members will ,hear annual  reports', from the executive and  heads of committees. A tentative constitution will be presented for discussion arid acceptance, Plans for enlarge-  -ment of membership "will ?��>e  laid. The possibility of the installation of a ski-tow, and club  transportation will be .discussed.  The meeting will view colored movies, showing some remarkable ,and for the most  part unintentional acrobatics  . of club members on skis. Coffee and sandwiches will be  served.  Due to the effort of small  but faithful work parties, the  clubhouse on Mt. Elphinstone  is now in the final stages of  completion. "Gracious living"  on the mountain, will, it is  hoped, be a little less rustic  this winter than last- It will  still be primitive enough however, to satisfy the hardiest  outdoorsman.  The club would be grateful  for the offer of any reasonably  good, used furniture or fixtures. Old windows, sashes or  doors would be particularly  welcome. Contributors please  phone Mrs. Barrie Stewart,  Gibsons 59Q.  Though only members in  good standing will have a vote  on the various motions to be  presented for consideration,  the meeting itself is open to the  public. Please attend if you are  interested in skiing.  TEEN-AGER DEBATE  Support our teen-agers or  condemn them? Which are we  doing and why? Buzz-sessions  will try to pin-point some faults  and offer some constructive  criticisms. Come out on Wed.  Nov. 19 at 8 p.m., Roberts  Creek School, to PTA. You will  not talk alone.  veterans  Representatives of various  Legion branches and Women's  Auxiliaries heard W.H. Payne,  MiP. for Coast-Capilano discuss veterans' affairs at the  November meeting of Sechelt  Canadian Legion branch 140,  Nov. 7. Prior to the meeting  members met Mr. Payne informally during a social half-hour  Ron Haig, Deputy Z'-ne Commander introdured Mr. Payne  at the meeting?  Mr_ Payne is a veteran and  saw much action during World  War II, especially in Italy. He  spoke impromptu and gave  an interesting talk on his  work in the government and  especially emphasized the interest by the government in  veterans' affairs.  He stressed the point that  where a veteran although discharged as medically fit now-  felt that in later life that his  iiincsr was definitely " due to  war conditions then the department would willingly search  records and go to great-trouble  in their review of the case.  Mr. Payne spoke at length  on the work of the estimates  committee of which he is a  member; he also touched on  many other aspects such as military, p"' a-* -.r.v-1. defences,  the militia and the urgent need  of a greater numHrr of civilians' in the Obc-.?rven Corps? to  help nro+ect our vf-K territory  should the need  ever  arise.  Durine* question time Mr.  Payne explained that difficulties had arisen on the problem  -of:inc.ludJng..Merchant Service  men in the same categories as  the fighting services. Although  he fet the same as the government departments and was  wholeheartedly in favor of  their inclusion there could be  no doubt tlie problem of proof  of service in tlie theatres of  war was at present unsolvable.  Manv who posed questions  wpro requested to write direct  to Mr. Payne's office and he in  turn pmrrpsed to do hi- utmost  to see that their difficulties and  needs were known to the Veterans Deparment of the govern  ment.  The  meeting closed with   a  vote   of thanks to Mr.  Payne  and a further informal period  ��� during     which     refreshments  were served.  Re-elect Malyea  At the annual meeting of the  Fair committee Nov. 5, 15  members were present. Following are the names of the executive for the 1959 Fair, all be-  inf re-elQcted.  Roy Malyea, chairman; William Haley, " vice-chairman;  ���Norman Sergeant, honorary  chairman; Mrs. M. LeFeuvre,  secretary-treasurer by acclamation; Mrs. N.

There will also be a lecture  by Flying Officer Pat Ribbins  on the effect of nuclear explosions and how the Ground Observer Corps fits into such a  .situation. The show will last  about an hour-and-a-half.  Public meeting on cows  HEADLANDS BAZAAR  !    The Headlands Service Club  ' Bazaar  held   Tuesday ?in   the  United Church Hall was quite  successful with the realization  of $100.  At the Old Age Pensioners  Organization meeting next  Monday, Nov. 17 the important matter of animals that are  allowed to roam at large and  destroy the gardens of members will be discussed.  This meeting will be open to  the public and all are invited  to take part in the discussion.  Tom Hughes of the SPCA, Vancouver has announced he will  attend the meeting.  This is a matter that concerns everyone living in the  dstrict and it is hoped all interested will be present at the  meeting in the Kinsmen's Club  at 2 p.m..  As it is open session day all  interested   are   welcome,   re  gardless of whether you are a  member.  It is expected there will be a  nice amplifying setup so that  those who have difficulty in  hearing the discussions will be  able to cluster round the amplifier and reap the benefits of  the discusions. A travelling  mike will also be on hand for  those who speak from the floor.  It is expected there will be  an innovation in the musical  line to help with the song  sheet so everybody should  come prepared to show what  a lovely voice you still have  even if an old age pensioner.  Arrangements will also have  to be made for the final meet:  ing of the year which will be  a Christmas meeting. 2    Coast News; "Nov. 13, 195$.

Thumb twiddling ends  Many people are old enough to remember one of Marie  Lloyd's famous repertoire of songs which included that sprightly  number "A Little of What You Fancy Does You Good."  While Marie Lloyd did not have Gibsons Post Office in  mind while singing that number to her numerous audiences of  bygone days it does have something in common with the effort  of the staff to obtain something which will do them, one hopes,  some good.  The Post Office staff is desirous of closing half-an-hour  earlier each evening from Monday to Friday. This would mean  that the Post Office would close at 5.30 p.m. instead of 6 p.m.  If one considers the general trend for shorter working  hours (excluding of course those indivduals who turn out weekly newspapers) there is no reason why post office staffs should  not be able to close shop half-an-hour earlier each working day  except Saturday when one o'clock is closing time.  Experience has shown the period from 5.30 to 6 p.m. is  one during which tlie staff twiddled its individual thumbs and  wondered why other places could shut up shop at 5.30 but not  postal workers.  Maybe the staff does not know Marie Lloyd's famous song.  However members of the staff agree with the sentiment expressed thereby and have obtained support of Gibsons Board of Trade  which agreed unanimously to the change.  As mail for outside points is usually cleared much earlier  in the afternoon there does not appear to be any reason why the  employees of the post office should not have reduced working  hours.  Seals seal doom of TB  Fifty y_ars have passed since Canadian editors began urging the ^u'e-i-. iu buy Christmas seals. It all started in Toronto in  1908 when the old Globe ran an editorial on its front page announcing something new ��� the sale of Christmas stamps to provide funds for anti-tuberculosis work.  The idea was new to this country, said the writer, but  Denmark had been using it since Christmas 1904 with splendid  results. The special virtue of the scheme, which had been the inspiration of a Copenhagen postman, was that it gave everyone  a chance to help.  Up to that time the general idea was that doctors were  the only ones who could do anything about disease. The Christmas seal idea opened up a /way for everyone to take a hand, according to their ablities. Men, women and children could help,  rich or poor, young or old.  Every Christmas since, Canadians in growing numbers  have bought Christ-mas seals to help stamp out tuberculosis. Time  showed that what had once seemed hopeless is possible if we will  stay on the course. Tuberculosis has not been wiped out yet but  we know it can be done. So use those Christmas seals and help  keep this disease under control.  Today's cars and dinosaurs  One Johannesburg used-car dealer said that the "automobile" is carefully repeating the history of the dinosaur. Like  this prehistoric animal the American car is becoming so large,  and so weighed down with chromium plated armour, that it is  doomed to extinction.  There is this difference, however:: "The dinosaur laid eggsi  which is not among the talents of the automobile. It is quite clear  though, that in their elaborate styling and gimmicks the stylists  have done just that ��� laid an egg." ��� South Africa News.

Queen's- University history  professor A.R.M. Lower, author of many widely read  books on Canada and Canadians, says that all former gods  have given way in this country to worship of mechanical  progress, symbolized by the  automobile.  He names this chief god CAR  and identifies several sub-gods:  Equality, Democracy, Uncle  Sam, and a young Godess called Canada who, he says, may  not really exist. One of the byproducts of this mechanical society, which is "without question one of the most remark  able in history and, perhaps  also, all its aspects considered,  the most lunatic," is that heroes have disappeared from the  Canadian scene.  Here is some of the evidence  Professor Lower uses to back  up his surprising claim:  "Can anyone imagine an  Eisenhower in Canada ��� a successful general vaulting into  political power? Even the great  air fighters of World War I,  who for a short time seemed to  qualify a heroes, were soon  forgotten.  "As for men of letters and  scholars as heroes," the Maclean's article continues, "perish the thought! The chances of  their becoming representative  figures in a population such as  ours were zero.  "Entertainers, actors, actresses we could not believe in unless they were American.

She lives near a large  city apartment house.  One day as she passed a small  boy met her and said: "Lady  would youj be willing to visit an  old man on the third floor of  that house?" He pointed to the  apartment house then continued,  "I run messages for him and t  think he is dying and doesn't  have anybody to look after him."  After a little hesitation the  lady agreed and followed the  boy. He took her to the old man's  apartment and found him alone  and depressed. He said: "My wife  died about two years ago; no one  comes to see me." I have seen  you and a man passing on your  way to the departmental store  and you both looked so kind, I  wonder if you would sometimes  drop in ��� it would cheer me  up."  The apartment was well furnished and the man intelligent  and thoughtful. He went on: I go  to the window and watch the*  people, thousands of them in cars  and walking and I seem so entirely alone ��� no one knows me  and I am terribly lonely. The  lady promised to return with  her husband. He had to make a  business trip but was greatly interested.  At the end of a week he returned and they both set out for  the apartment but the door was  locked and they visited the Janitor. He said: "We buiried the old  man yesterday and there were  just two or three people at the  funeral. I don't know what he  died of but I think it was a  broken heart,"  Evidently the man had some  financial reserves but in a city  of a million people he died of  sheer loneliness. He watched the  crowds ��� most   of   them good  and decent ��� but he was starved  for friendship and a little attention. "What can we do about it?  The   pastor   of  a large Church  told   me   that   he   invited    all  friends over seventy years of ago  to a gathering. He said: "I was  amazed at the turn-out. Over a  hundred came. Many present said  it was the happiest evening for  a long time. A club was formed  and monthly meetings arranged.  There is a suggestion here for  other   churches  of  groups who  want to bring comfort to elderly  people.  There must be a vast number  of such people in every community who feel they are crowded out and forgotten. Where  there are children or grandchildren the situation differs but I  am thinking of those like the  man in the apartment house who  seemed to have no one to think  of him. .  We are .here as George Eliot  said, to help each other, or life  has little purpose to us.  Our quotation to-day is an exhortation to kindness:  "Dear heart be swift in loving,  Time speedeth on;  And all the chance of blessed,  service  Will soon be gone."

The Gallery is situated on the north side  '. of Trafalgar Square and contains  one of the finest and best hung  collections   of   paintings in the  world. Though not art connoisseurs we  were suitably impressed and were interested to see  the   number   of   young   artists  scattered throughout the galleries  with   their  easels and  pallettes  copying some of the old masters.  Many   Gibsons   oldtimers   will  remember   Mr. and   Mrs.  C.  J,  Fletcher   who  lived in  Gibsons  and Hopkins for some years. Mrs.  Fletcher is now living with her  Son in Westview at the age of  90. We had a very pleasant visit  with her daughter, Barbara, Mrs.  Roy    Chapman,   who ^lives    in  Hampstead,   a  beautiful   suburb  skirting the   famous  Hampstead  Heath.  Mr. Chapman 'told us that it  , was possible to walk from Hampstead to his office in the West  End, a distance of six miles, on  grass through the various parks'  almost all the way. The Chapman's son, John, at the age of  30, is by way of becoming a  famous playwright, having had  a play riinning in Whitehall ,  Theatre for four years.  Other enjoyable visits were  with friends in East Barnet, another pleasant suburb with parks;  and cricket rounds, and with  Mrs. Morgan the wife of our  former .music teacher at Elphinstone High School, who lives in  another suburb, Cannons Park,  about 10 miles out of the City.  All these people were eager to  drive us round the neighboring  country-side to show us its  beauty. ,  Now we come to our last Sun .  day in London which we celebrated by going to the morning  service at St. Pa-uis Cathedral;  a beautiful Choral Eucharist.  This was an inspiring organ and  choral treat and we heard a very  fine sermon on the subject of ...  banning nuclear tests and weapons. .  In accordance with our plans  we checked out of the Cumberland Hotel on the morning of  May 19. We had completed our  arrangements for the hire of a  Vauxhall car for five weeks  from that date and a uniformed  girl driver brought the car rcar-nd  to the hotel at 10 o'clock.

The driver took us out  of the heavy traffic'to the outskirts of London on the way to  Oxford, explained the operation  of the car, and then handed it  over  first noting  carefully any  scratches or blemishes on it so  that we should not be held re-  sponsibe for these at a later date.  With a right side drive and a  left hand gear shift I must confess that for the first day or two  driving the car gave me a mild  case of the jitters. Keeping on  the left side of the road was not  too bad but, changing gears with  the left hand and only using the  right hand for the direction indicator required  continous   concentration. The driving was made  particulary  difficult  for  me  as  I had been using an automatic  transmission   at   home  for the  last three years.  With the car came a Royal  Amitomobile Club routing  through North Wales, Cheshire,  Derbyshire and up to Harrogate  in Yorkshire: road maps; key  to R.A.C. telephone boxes and  a hotel guide for the British Isles. -  Pasted on the wind-shield and  rear window were stickers warning all and sundry that we were  visitors to Britain and should be:  treated with care and courtesy.  These were almost as protection  as the big L signs we saw on so  many cars in England denoting  'learner.'

Westwood, minister of  recreation and conservation  discuss various matters among  which were:  "Let us not forget that "we  have no monopoly on scenery.  We do have, as Mr. Swendsen  of the Washington State Ferries declared, an advantage in  our particular allotment of  scenic/ elements. We have water and mountains and greenery in more profusion than anywhere else in North America  but if people outside the province do not hear about these  elements, they are wasted from  a tourist standpoint. It.is, there  fore, our job to tell potential  visitors   about what we have.  "But of course having those  things that are called scenery  is not enough. As John Fisher  has often said and it will bear  repeating here, a bad cup of  coffee or a surly waitress or  a bad approach on the exchange problem can jeopardize  your customer relations.
