The matter of Black Ball Ferries transporting propane gas  trucks, excluding passengers on  the same ferry, arranging for  them to be transported by small  water taxi, was held in abeyance  because Mr. Gaglardi said he  was awaiting a report on the  subject.  The board also heard Norman  Hough speak on agricultural topics. It also considered an increase in the membership rate  deciding on a sliding scale between individual members and  business house memberships.

Those that wars have left maimed and sick are remembered by  your generosity when you take a poppy from the tray. Through your  generosity any war veteran who has suffered loss by fire, or unexpected hardship or long illness can be quickly assisted with funds'  for food, shelter, and medical expense.  The greater portion (about 70%) of funds gathered in the poppy  campaign .remain,..kept in ja_ special tnist ;f uiid, in -the -community>  ready for local needs. A smaller portion of the fund finances service,  bureaus through which veterans and their dependents may deal, with  the Federal Government.  And the dead? The blood-red Flanders poppy has served in .three  wars to recall the faces of comrades, sons, brothers, "killed in action" as the laconic message to the next of kin said ���- some instantly,  many after long pain and hopeless weariness of the spirit. To the very  young the poppy is a symbol that we must take care to. explain. ���  The moments of remembrance on this November 11 give us pause  amidst the shouting from the conference tables and the grinding out  of mechanisms of destruction, to consider the Heedlessness of further sacrifice. ��� G.

The donor who prefers to m-  . main anonymous asked the editor of the Coast News to make  the presentation which was done  when Mr. Adams appeared at  the Coast News office.  The Year Book is a compendium of world activities in practically every field one can ask  for and should be a good source  for students seeking i**n>ta<Iate  m'orroatirpn on world ami Canadian   events.  An essay written by Sharon  Shaughnessy of Pender Harbour  Junior-Senior High school has  been chosen as the best from  two school districts and will be  among SO from which will be selected the winning essay for a  trip to a New York forum, all  expenses paid.  If Sharon wins she will spend  from January to April in New  York and wiH attend the 15th  annual New York Herald-Tribune  Forum. Subject of the essay was  "Canada's Future in the United  Nations."  The announcement of the selection of Sharon's essay was  rcade by G. E. Johnson, district  superintendent of schools and  the two school districts from  which the essayists presented  1heir work were the Sechelt and  Powell River districts. The competition is taking place all over  the province.  British Colombia was asked  by the department of external  affairs to select a student who  wiU represent the whole of Canada aft the HeraM-Tribune forum. Previous delegates came  from Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal  At Gibsons, nearly al! of the  1,000 dial phones required have  been installed. About 600 subscribers' premises were rewired  and testing of the automatic sets  is proceeding.  Installation of automatic  switching equipment in Gibsons'  new central office building at  North Road and Hillcrest Avenue  is 75 percent completed. Installation of an eight-position automatic switchboard has been completed and operator training, under the direction of travelling  traffic supervisor, Miss Aaltze  Krygsveld, began  this  week.  Dial sets, have also been installed in the homes of six Gibsons exchange subscribers on  Keats Island, and the necessary  changes to make this circuit conform to automatic operation  have been completed.  The 20 Gibsons exchange subscribers on Gambier Island (who ,  will be known for identification  purposes    as    "Gambier"    sub- ���'  scribers)  will   remain   on   magneto   service.   Each   time   they '.  wish to place a call "Gambier" :  subscribers will signal an operator by activating a lamp and a  bell at the Gambier position on ,  the toll board.  Since Gibsons will be the toll  centre for the entire Sechelt Peninsula   at  the   time   of  conversion,  toll   stations   on   Lasqueti  Island will be connected to the  new board. These 17 telephones,  now   served from   Sechelt,   will  also remain on magneto service.  Free  calling between  Gibsons  and the adjacent Port Mellon ex- ���>  change   will  continue   after  the  conversion. As a result, Gibsons  and Port Mellon subscribers, will i  now be able to dial each other ,  without the assistance of an op- ,  erator.  The   transition  of  the   two  exchanges   from   magneto   to ,  dial   operation  will make the  ; SecHeltv Peiiinsuia*s ��� telephone-  system   fully   automatic.  The  -  Peninsula's    other     automatic  exchanges are Port Mellon and  Pender Harbour. '  Sechelt and Gibsons subscribers will be among the first  in the province to have seven-  digit telephone numbers. The  All Number Calling system ���  no exchange prefix letters ���  will be gradually extended by  the telephone company to include other exchanges scheduled for conversion' to automatic operation during the  next few yeara  The new system is being adopted generally throughout  North America mainly because  of the need for more dialing  codes under the international '.  DDD ��� Direct Distance Dialing ��� program.  For example, subscribers in  Nanaimo will be able to dial  their own long distance station-to-station .calls to Sechelt  and Gibsons as well as other  seven-digit areas when special  DDD equipment is installed in  that city about December.  Vancouver subscribers will  have DDD at their fingertips  about May.  BARN DANCE  Job's Daughters and DeMolay  boys held a barn dance, Sat.,  OcL SS at Wilson Creek. The  ban was decorated symbolizing  the western style with chuckwa-  goras and cowboys. Refreshments  were flapjacks cooked by the  Jc9ses* mothers  ST. BART'S BAZAAR  St. Bartholomew's W.

This remark was made by W. O. Twaits, president of Imperial  ��il Limited, at the Atlantic tax conference in Halifax, N. S. last July.  The title of his talk was "Needed ��� A Philosophy of Realism."  In view of the recent meeting of premiers in Ottawa with the Prime  Minister, Mr. Twait's remark about competition for the tax dollar  Mas merit. The premiers all want more. So does Ottawa.  Mr. Twaits also had this to say: "Instead of patchwork expediency and destructive competition for the tax dollar, we need a new  philosophic,base and a renaissance in fiscal thinking with the objective of restoring individual and collective incentives."  In his speech at another point Mr. Twaits explained that back  in 1926 government revenues absorbed 15.4 percent of the gross national product which is the sum total of national effort expressed in  dollars. In 1959 the total absorbed by government revenues was 29.3  percent, very nearly double the 1926 figure.  To continue, Mr. Twaits argued that improvements in productivity and efficiency are necessary for competitive survival. Such  improvements involve careful assessment of capital investment versus the potential savings and the marketing conditions for the pro^  ducts. Similarly a government must assess the admitted difficulties of  eest-cutting measures and improvements in efficiency against a much  greater danger of an overloaded tax structure.  For that, he said, is the reality which we must face today ��� a  tax load which is in peacetime and prosperity, almost three-fifths as  big a chunk of the Gross National Product as we took at the peak of  World War H. Such a state of affairs means there is no latitude, virtually no spare capacity in the fiscal machinery, to provide for a  national emergency.  If the above wording confuses some readers is means generally  that government is getting too big a bite of the financial pie in which  we are all interested.  Premier Bennett of British Columbia in his brief to the federal  government said he had at the July meeting suggested not a larger  cut from the existing pie but a co-operative effort to create a bigger  pie. British Columbia has a problem which differs from those of  other provinces west of the Great Lakes. It his an expanding economy also an expanding population. This naturally produces the demand for greater expenditures and sets going the competition for the  tax dollar, Ottawa wanting more nationally and British Columbia  seeking more provincially.  Perhaps Mr. Twaits expressed with greater clarity what he was  trying to say as regards "A Philosophy of Realism" when he referred to the Boston Tea Party and how the colonists felt the direct im-  th-* ta?: and reacted v/ith a great deal more fuss over a small  : V/--.0. beverage than we show over a high tax on strong bev-  Cemetery  Editor:  It has come to my attention   that   the   local   United  Church board has  had pictures  taken of the Gibson family cemetery,   such pictures   to be  used  as   exhibits  in  its  case  against  the family. The argument which  these   pictures   are   intended   to  support maintains that, in view  of  the   deplorable   condition   of  the  graveyard,  bones   of  members of the Gibson family buried  therein   should   be   removed   to  Seaview     Cemetery.      Arrangements for such removal have, I  understand,   already progressed.  I should like to make a counter proposal to  this  interesting  proposition. If the wages  of neglect is dispossession, then I say  that the  United   Church   should  be forthwith dispossessed of its  use of the   building  in  current  use and the ground it occupies.  The structure is basically today  that provided 50  years  ago  by  Mr. George Gibson and his family,   absolutely  without   cost   to  the Methodist Church congregation.  When "some 20 years ago,  the only improvements to it were  carried  out,  the two remaining  daughters    of    George    Gibson  were asked to provide, and did  provide, windows   to   commemorate those of their family who  lay buried in the adjacent graveyard.  Some attempts, however shortlived they may be, are made  each year by some member of  George Gibson's descendants to  maintain the family plot. How  much is being done each year  by the local Board to maintain  the church Mr. Gibson built.  Let there be no mistake about  this situation. Every square inch  of the village of  Gibsons Landing occupies land once held by  the  Gibson   family.   The   cemetery whose  existence  is threatened pre-dates the. church which  threatens   it   by over 20  years.  Mr. George Gibson, postmaster,  school   board   chairman,  justice  of the peace for the community  founded  by him, had no intention, when he conveyed his and  his family's bones to trusteeship  of the church, of permitting that  church to sell this plot of ground,  which is not theirs to sell.  To recapitulate ��� the local  board may remove its church  whereto it pleases. It may not  remove, from ground it holds by  codicil for their very preservation, bones it has neither legal  nor moral right to touch.  John Glassford  The press  Editor: In your issue of Oct.  27 under the caption "Actual  facts necessary" you have unburdened your mountainous  brain on the ethics of a newspaper. There is an old saying  and a very true one "Self praise  is n�� recommendation" just as  true today as when it was first  spoken.  I suggest that you turn up  your issue of July 9, 1959 and  read the almost full column report about a case in the police  court, and then read what, you  have said in this editorial. Both  are supposed to be for the edification of the public.  B. L. Cope.  Editor's Note: It was ; Mr.  Cope's own' actions that resulted  in the half-column of space on  the front page of July 9, 1959,:  when he charged an RCMP constable with driving without due  care and attention. Counsel for  the constable argued that he had  never, seen a more flimsy case  than, that presented by Mr. Cope  to which the magistrate agreed  and dismissed the charge. If Mr.  Cope had not laid the charge that  story could not have been published.  r.uclear power to wipe out civilization. Hence it's heartening to  lind his stating that Canada will  try to act as a peacemaker between the great powers of the  world; pointing to the need for  a non-nuclear power to focus  world opinion on the nuclear  pev/i-rs demanding that disarmament  be  undertaken.  Hero is   ono place where  we  c*".:*i    prcciico    togetherness    regardless of  our differing political faiths, in the fervent hope of,  promoting   the   preservation   of  world peace, which pre-supposes  the insane wastefulness of DEW  lines,   constant   air  surveillance  and   the  continuing   massing  of  further diabolical means of destruction. We must not overlook  ������' the fact that there is a school of  thought existing among military  men and their advisors who feel  that the U.S. could absorb from  ���  20  million to 40 million  casual-  < lies and eventually recover. The  ] new  developments would neces-  /  sitate   more   burrowing  in   the  ground.    Factories,     apartment  houses and stores etc.,  built in  caves.   There's  not much   point  .  in painting any more of this picture  in order to point out our  ��� duty to prevent the continuance  of such thoughts and trends.  We are advised that self-preservation is the first law of nature. It occurs to me that apart  from ourselves we owe much to  our children and our children's  children. Let us remember our  children, especially babes in  arms, are in no way responsible  for the existing international insanity. Therefore, does it not  pose the question: Am I playing  my part in standing idly by and  aoing nothing to prevent the possibility of some fathead either in  Russia or the U.S. pressing a  button that puts an end to our  existence?  What is more wonderful than  mother love (yes, and father  love too now that he takes his  turn at diaper changing)? But  who, oh why does not our lov!.��  for our offspring prompt us to  sit up and take notice of the impending doom unless present day  summit and pre-summit conferences produce better results?  This is everpbody's duty.  Here in Gibsons we have a  council, board of trade and numbers of other organizations which  practically without exception  could somewhere in their order  of procedure discuss how best  to end the armament race with  the inevitable outcome if continued indefinitely. Some people  are awestruck with the implied  consequences that would ensue  should disarmament be decided  upon. Millions more out of work  etc. I cannot help but feel that  when we survey the wonderful  potential demonstrated by the  brains utilized in devising death  dealing instruments that some of  that same brain potential could  be used for chartering a sane  course for present day civilization. Dave Rees.  pa..i  \yy..    O  Armaments  The illustration could be termed as too simple. Perhaps it is but  it might do to set some minds thinking on the subject of taxation and  the philosophy and objectives of our democratic system.

We learn there is enough explosives today to hand everyone  of us on earth a packet containing 10 tons.

One of mankind's oldest dilemmas ��� how to convert sea  water into useful fresh water  ��� appears to have been conquered by the development ox  a new apparatus in Japanese  laboratories.  Already the U.S. Government is reported establishing,  a new plant in Denver, Colo.,  tc experiment with the new  process, and other inquiries  have come from France, Israel  and Australia. '  The new apparatus was developed by Yoshio Tsunoda,  director of the technical laboratory of the Asahi Chemical  Industry Company, who put a  different application to the  well-known ion exchange method of separating salt from  sea water.  After developing a membrane of resin which would  separate salt from sea water,  he put it into use with a con-  New treatment  for bad burns  A radical treatment for burns  has been recommended by a  doctor in Los; Angeles. Dr. Alex  G. Shulman says ice water is  the best first aid measure for  any burn covering up to twenty  percent of the body.  His method is to place the  burned area immediately into  a basin containing tap water,  ice cubes and a disinfectant,  hexachlorophene. If immersion  of the area is impractical, apply towels chilled in a bucket  of ice water.  Dr. Shulman said his experience indicates whatever the  subsequent management may  foe, those patients who receive  initial ice water treatment fare  better than those who do not.  His method was described in a  release sent to the Health  League of Canada by the  American Medical Association.  verter which draws fresh water, instead of salt, from sea  water.  The New Japan Chemical  Company, a subsidiary of the  Asahi Company, is now building a factory whichi will be  capable of producing 15,000  sets of resin membranes a year.  FRUSTRATED TREES  One group of scientists are  at work with, chemicals to accelerate the growth and improve the cellulose of certain  trees while another group is at  work to slow the growth and  make the trees produce more  branches in order to market  better shaped Christmas trees.  With this speedup, slowup  campaign at work, we will  soon see tree psychologists  joining tree doctors to take  care of frustrated trees.

Asking questions is  one way of learning, and the  This week's  "First of the season" freshly  dug potatoes from our local  potato-growing farms have a  natural flavor that comes from  long, steady growth, that has  not been forced.  Washed and scrubbed (no  peeling needed) they're ready  to be boiled whole, sliced and  fried, or baked in the oven or  in the glowing ashes of your  backyard barbecue.  Tiny ones, boiled and chilled, then drizzled with salad  dressing are wonderful addition  to your favorite vegetable  salad, too. As a matter of fact  cold, boiled new potatoes topped with; sour cream or melted  butter are good with cold  meats and a salad for a main  course.  New potatoes, baked in the  oven or in the barbecue ashes  have an especially exciting  flavor.  * * * '  Baked New Potatoes  To BaKe in Oven: Wash and  sicrub. Place on baking sheet.  Prick several times with fork.  Bake in hot oven, 400 deg. F.,  for about 1 'hour. If desired,  take potatoes from oven during  baking time and place under  cold water tap. This helps to  crispen the skins.  To Bake in Ashes or on Grill:  Wash, scrub and place in square  or heavy-duty foil. Add a pat  of butter. Wrap foil edges.  Place on grill or in ashes and  bake about 1 hour, or longer  depending on size.  By  Nancy Cleaves  Copyrighted  education of an individual  never stands still. Sometimes  a father or mother wearies of  the constant "Why?" "Where?'r  "What?" and "When?" issuing  from the child's lips. But a parent must try to answer a  child's question when it is asked.  A parent should always  pause in whatever he is doing  to answer a child's question at  once. A child's interest soon  shifts. Once the edge is blunted  on curiosity about a particular  thing, that question may not  be adced again.  *  *  It is sometimes inadvisable  to attempt to answer certain  questions in front of visitors.  A child old enough* to understand situations will be temporarily satisfied with Mother's  "Mother cannot tell you about  that just now. But she will tell  you about it at bed time."  A parent cannot always an-  swerd a question, and it does  no harm to admit ignorance.  Father and son can look up the  question about "How does electricity work?" in a reference  book, suchi as the Book of  Knowledge. This particular set  of books with an extensive index is very valuable in that  a child, who can read, can find  his answers without help. A parent can also encourage an  older dhdld to look up material  on a topic under discussion in  the public library.  *    *    *  Sometimes a parent will  know of some other individual  who is better equipped to answer that question. This is particularly true in vocational  guidance. If mother was a  teacher, and Aunt Susan was  a nurse, Janey can learn a lot  more about nursing from Aunt  Susan, or from recently graduated nurses, then from Mother.  All questions are not real  questions. Sometimes a child  who hungers for attention asks  a stream of questions, not even  PLAN   NO.   R7B- 1186  AREA -   1185.75  SQ. FT  THE BUILDING CENTRE (B.C.)

Plan No. 1186 ('copyright No. 117093)  Design for family home  Pleasantly contemporary in appearance, but with a flair for  simple straightforward lines, here is another Building Centre  home designed for the family that is looking for room to grow ia.  Enter this house through the luxury size foyer, and you have a  choice of either continuing straight through, to the efficiently  planned kitchen, or turning right into the pleasant living room  with the. large picture window to overlook t!he view.  A full sized dining room is located off the living room ��� you  can shut off the dining and kitchen areas from the living room  and use the dining area as a family room if you prefer.  To save steps^and traffic through the house, the basement stairs  are located off the kitchen, and of course there is a full sized  basement where a future recreation room can be completed for  the teenagers in your family.  In addition to tifoe three (bedrooms with their large closets, the  layout is completed by a bathroom with full sdzed vanity for the  convenience of; all the family. A carport is not shown, but this  could easily be added; or if the climate is an element to consider,  it could be a garage.  The straight simple lines of this house are enhanced by the plain  gable roof lending itsielf to the beautiful new tones of patent or  cedar shingles. This particular sketch shows a combination of  stucco and siding, but there are many beautiful outside finishes  now available that could be adapted to use in enhancing the  beautiful lines of this house.

A child  wok** wants to put off his bedtime hour may use question-  asking as a device to delay his  departure. Mother can easily  >see through this subterfuge.  ���v       -*������       ~c  The questions about sex are  most likely to receive no satisfactory answer from parents.  This is a great pity, because if  mother and dad do not satisfy  the child's curiosity, the child  will seek answers from his  playmates. It is not a matter  of keeping -children ignorant,  or "innocent" as some prefer  to call it, but it is the duty of  both parents to decide early in  3 the child's life if they will answer these questions truthfully  at the proper time, or leave  this part of the child's education to t'y.e misinformation and  nastiness conveyed by their  playmates.  A little child, may ask the  same question over and over  again. Ke seems to have forgotten the previous answers, but  resist the urge to go into great  detail. Your child's questions,  at every stage of his life, deserve honest answers, made as  simple as possible. Thus one  generation pays its debt to the  next.  Do give your child the best  answers you can to the questions he directs at you!

Granthams man visits  old haunts in Bristol  Washer held  most useful  What does the Canadian farm  housewife consider the most useful piece of equipment in her  home?  This question was posed to 352  homemakers residing in each  county and district of Ontario  by the rural sociology unit of  the Canadian Department of  Agriculture, in conjunction with  Ihe home economics service of  the  provincial  government.  The answer: a power washing  machine.  The survey, reports Dr. Helen  C. Abell, who is head of the rural sociology unit, listed 37 pieces  of equipment as considered  "most useful"  An analysis showed that an  electric or gas stove ranked next  to the washing machine, and was  closely followed by a refrigerator. All three were in 85 to 98  percent of the farm homes and  were the choice of three-quarters  of those surveyed.  Fourth piece of equipment  considered most useful was an  automatic clothes drier. Although found in only 11 percent  of the homes included in the  study, the drier was named as  one of the most useful labor  savers by over half of the women who had one.  High on this list of useful home  equipment came these electrical appliances: a freezer, a vacuum cleaner, and a floor polisher.  Other items mentioned by  fewer of the women were: an  ironer or mangle, an electric  food mixer, a sewing machine,  an electric coffee maker and  toaster.

Here is what Neptune had to say:  In   1905,   16-year-old James  William Edwards said goodbye  to his friends   in Bristol,  and  with ��50  in his pocket, given  him by his mother, he set sain  for a new life in Canada. Now,':  a lively 71, he has returned to  the city of his birth' for a few f  weeks'  visit,   and he   bounced'  up the office stairs for a chat  with Neptune���'���aS" sprightly as  if he were still in Ms 'teens.  Mir. Edwards is one of the  six sons and seven daughters  of the twice-married Mr. William Trace Edwards, whom  older Bristolians will remem-...  ber as the head at one time of  the Iong-establislued family  firm of shop-fitters in Temple  Street.  After 55 years in  America,  he has lost contact with many  members of the family, but he  believes he is the only one of _  his generation still alive.  WMle in Bristol, he is staying with his nephew Alan and;  his  nieces  Vera and Beryl at;  Shellard   Road , Longweil'  Green. In fact, the main purpose   of   his  homecoming,   he u  tells me, is to  be  present at  Beryl's wedding. 5  Mr. Edward's own wedding  ��� he hais been married now  for 48 years ��� was a whirl- ;  wind affair. When he was running a small restaurant in Van-...  couver, he employed a young  Brighton girl as his dishwasher. Very soon, she moved to a  kitchen of her own ��� as his  bride.  A pupil  of Colston  School.  Mr. Edwards worked at Mar-  don Son and Hall before emigrating. He then switched to  coal-mining for a while, before  joining tho British Columbia  Electric Railway as a driver.  Six years ago, he retired, after  37 years' service.  Most of Mr. Edward's life  has been spent in Vancouver.  He tells me that the flight  back to England was quicker  than finding his way across  London and getting a train to  Bristol.

All that's needed is a sheet  of fir plywood with a pair of  flue-tiles and  a few   strips  of  lumber.  Conversion to picnic table is  easily achieved by up-ending  the tiles to give extra height.  Either way, it's a useful addition to out-door living amenities.  To match the gay variety of  colors available in tiles, the  table top can be painted or  covered with a mosaic of light  tile. The only tools needed to  build it are a hammer, saw  and screw driver.  The tiles are prevented from  slipping by thin strips of lumber placed 8" in from the ends  and   13"    apart,  as  shown. A  diagonal  brace  reinforces   the  3A" plywood top.  Because fir plywood manufactured in Canada is made  with* a completely waterproof  glue, there's1 no need to worry  about leaving your patio table  outdoors. Presence of this waterproof glue is signified by  the letters PMBC EXTE6SIOK  stamped on the edge of each  panel.  Another suggestion worth  the consideration of the rankest amateur concerns that old  coffee or end tables lying in a  corner of the 'basement. It can  be given new life by removing the top and replacing with  a piece of 3/4" fir plywood as  the base for a ceramic-tile top.  Add wrought-iron legs, and it  will look like a new piece of  furniture.  Grade 13 a necessity!  British Columbia must spend  "very much more per student  than we now do' if we are to  decentralize our system of  higher education, the president  of t��ie University of British Columbia says in his annual report.  President N. A. M. MacKenzie  Bays Canada needs more university graduates but before| ,a  pirogram of decentralization1 is  embarked upon there should be  a full scale enquiry so that the  public can have a good look  at the bill before deciding in  wHich direction to move.  There is no such thing as  cheap (higher education, the  president says, and any efforts  to decentralize based on the  argument that smaller centers  can produce university ��� graduates more cheaply than larger*  centers can lead only to a de-  B5asement. of educational standards.  If the public is -willing to*  spend the sums necessary, the  oresident argues, decentralization may well bring benefits .'to  a few centers other than Vancouver and Victoria but measures other than the establish  ment of a few colleges will be  necessary to equalize educational opportunity in B.C.  The enquiry advocated by  the president would pay particular attention to the twin  problems of equating educational opportunity and maintaining equal educational standards between large and small  institutions.  The president draws special  attention to the role of university extension ae a means of  meeting some of the demand  for higher education in the  smaller centers.  "I can foresee a time," he  says, "wfoen extension centers,  located in the principal urban  ���UBC president says  areas of B.C., might provide a  nuclei of colleges to be develop-  later."  Another possibility, he says,  is to foster the growth of grade  XIII classes in high schools,  provided that the student at  once finds himself in an academic environment comparable  to that of a university.  If <we did create junior colleges, President MacKenzie  continues, we should have to  be most careful that they are  academically equal to the universities. "It would be disastrous," he says, "if we Were to>  establish junior colleges whose  graduates found that their two  years of work failed to obtain  credit at a reputable university."  We must ensure that the staff  is _highly qualified, that the  library and laboratory facilities  are equivalent to our own for  comparable years, and that the  teaching and learning facilities1  are the same, President MacKenzie says.  SEEK LEARNING  Enrolment at the University  of British Columbia has increased more than 11 percent  to a record total of 11,657 students, UBC's registrar J. E. A.  Parnall has announced. Largest increase was in the faculty  of arts and science where a  total of 5,837 students registered���an increase of 665 over  last year.

Like the beaver, the muskrat  expels bursts of air from its  lungs* when swimming any distance under ice in such a way  that bubbles are formed here  and there where ice and water  meet. Later, when the lungs  require re-fueling, these service stations are visited, and  the air from the bubbles, aerated and fresh, is again utilized.  The muskrat, of course, cannot  remain indefinitely under water without air breathed in the  usual way; their sojourn is  limited and bubble breathing  a temporary measure.  4-H STOCK SHOW  Dozens of young 4-H cluo  members from an area extending from Grand Forks to Clinton will compete at the Kamloops Fat Stock Show and  Sale to be held November 7,  8, 9 and 10.

Deware o  For driving in fog ��� the best  advice is ��� DON'T. But if you  must, take this advice from Carol Lane, Women's Travel Director for Shell:  Use low beam headlights which  shine down under the fog and  provide the best light. Avoid  bright lights which fog reflects  into your eyes. In daylight, keep  lights on so others will see you.  Always be able to stop within  the distance you can see ahead.  Drive slowly. Keep your windshield clean. Use the right edge  of the road to guide your car.  Avoid sudden stops. Signal  first to drivers behind by pumping your brakes so your tail  lights flash. Beware of patches  of fog. Slow down before entering them. They may thicken suddenly and unexpectedly.  24-hour  m  4-H  DELEGATE  John (Bud) Burbee of Dawson Creek, B..C. will represent  British Columbia at the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C. in April 1961,  Hon.

Hulk found  What is believed to be the  sunken fish boat belonging to  Melvyn H. Germyn of Gibsons  is reported to have been found  at the southeast end of Goose  Island fishing bank. It was reported lost more than one year  ago.  Trawlers in that vicinity snagged something which took two  boats to release and when free  the snagged nets brought up  some of the top gear of a sunken  craft. Examination of the gear  resulted in the strong surmise  that it was the missing boat  which was seen in that area just  about the time a strong gale  blew up.  Goose Island is about 80 miles  north of Vancouver Island in  Queen  Sound.  By PAT WELSH  The attractive home of the  Roy Doyles was the setting for  the Halfmoon Bay PTA tea Oct.  26. Mrs. Doyle welcomed the  many guests. The early colonial  style home was gay with autumn  toned chrysanthemums. Tea was  served at small tables enabling  guests to chat with friends and  neighbors, some of whom came  from Wilson Creek and Selma  Park.  The home baking arranged in  the dining room soon disappeared, the pies, cakes, cookies and  bread drew the guests like flies  to a honey pot.  Proceeds of this successful tea  will be used for the children's  Christmas party. In charge of  door and raffles was Mrs. Ed.  Edmunds; home baking, Mrs. R.  Schutz, Mrs. M. Foley; serving,  Mrs. P. Doyle, Mrs. T. Mosier,  Mrs. McLeod, Mrs. B. Charlton;  tea and coffee, Mrs. R. Warne;  tea cup readings, Mrs. Q. Burrows.  *    *    *  Square dancing was enjoyed  at the home of R. Holgate, Welcome Beach, Oct. 28.. There was  a good attendance. Refreshments  were served.  ��u *i�� o*  *���*�� ��** -v*  The Welcome Beach hall rang  with mirth and merriment the  night of Oct. 29 when the Welcome Beach Community Society's Hallowe'en party got underway. An excellent program  was arranged by MC R. Cormack including a barber shop  quartet.  The hall was gay with decorations. The apple contest caused  much hilarity with some of the  contestants almost losing their  dentures in attempting to bite  into an apple held by a partner  on the end of a string. A skeleton contest followed, some amusing answers turning up as names  of human bones. R. Cormack introduced the barber shop quartet, a group of handsome men  with handlebar mousetachios.  This was the quartet's first appearance on the peninsula and  they were loudly applauded. R.  Cormack proved himself an able  conductor for these singers and  it is hoped they will again give  of their talent.  A snake dance led by A. Young  got everyone up on the floor to  dance the old and new favorites.  A balloon dance followed, the  couples trying hard to be the  last up. A late arrival was Miss  Bridgitte Bardot who was very  glamorous in a yellow and black  striped skirt with black top. Around her shoulders was a Spanish shawl dripping with fringe,  in her teeth a rose a-la Carmen.  She was masked, and her lack  of English was no drawback and  her accent was amusing. She  soon joined the merry throng until supper was served.  The supper tables were gay  with Hallowe'en favors and Canon Greene told of his adventures  upcoast as a young missionary  causing much laughter.  *    *    *  There was a large attendance.  These monthly gatherings are  becoming very popular and new  entertainment will be the rule.  Mrs. L. Bath convened the affair  assisted by Mrs. M. Morgan and  Mrs. P. White. Prize winners  were Canon A. Greene, A Hansen, E. Lyons, F. Clavdon, Mrs.  M. Morgan and A.  Hanney.  Dr. and Mrs. Caple, Bruce,  Kippy and guests spent Sunday  at their cottage.
