Wortman  Some  little  anecdotes   characteristic, of Al Jackson:  Some weeks ago, discussing  the now unused.cemetery.cn  the slope of Mount Elphinstone near Gibsons, Al leaned  back and pursed his lips, and  looked out from under the  brim of his 'Calgary hat' and  said'"Hco ��� I'm sure glad  that was closed before I needed it. Can't you see those pallbearers struggling up the  mountain? You can't drive to  it, you know. They'll be slipping in the mud. It's bound to  be raining! Takes all the dignity out of the proceedin's,  too.!"  A friend told! this one: I was  going to: town on the early  ferry, and in one of, the cars  I noticed  a    figure     slumped  What's  tlie   idea   going   about  half  dressed"   he   asked.  Al' started1 a little, pulled the  hat over the other eye and  grinned. He looked down at  his pyjamas, and said. "I have  all my gear, clothes, guns and  sleeping bag in the back cf  the car there. I'm going on a  hunting trip t0 the prairies.  I'll just get dressed when I've  a mind to."  Wanting to help a young  student financially, but being  averse to a straight hand-out,  Al encouraged: thje boy to go  ahead with a wood-working  project, for which he eventually paid an appreciable sum.  "The money wasn't for the  furniture, mind you" he once  said, "but for working at it".  He made a blinkin' great cabinet  so big it wouldn't go in  -He is survived by his wife ,,.,.,,-, . ,  Norah Irene, a sister of,Lionel    down?  hat  slightly  askew,  so at the door, and he had to take  -!

Once, Al set 12 people, including his wife, to work  planning the most suitable:  disposition of a sum of $300  for the school. Several hours,  two pots of coffee and Mrs.  Knowles cookies later, Al  went back to take his wife  home, found the problem still  unsolved. "I thought I was  setting a smart five-minutes  work for some ordinary guy"  he said.  Al had been at . a ' VON  meeting, and made sorne caustic comments. This he followed by a rather vitriolic letter  to the Editor, with the remark  "Maybe if we serve then up  a little vinegar, somebody will  start thinking, eh?" The VON  had Al's stsiurichest support,  financially and  otherwise.  gy  Rev.

The Coast News there ��� has  been considerable, space devoted to the petition, for the Incorporation of Seehelt as a  village, municipality. There  has been nothing about the  very strong , counter-petition  which contained 107 bone fide  signatures.  On behalf of these 107 signatories I advised the deputy  minister of municipalites, in  a letter dated Sept. 20,^ that  should the department of municipal affairs recommend the  issuance of letters patent for  incorporation, we would peti-  t_cin for the holding of a plebiscite. Those people who favor  incorporation can only agree  that this is the only fair and  just method of determining  the. wishes of the people ihost  vitally concerned, namely the  taxpayers. Is there any reason  why this should not be done  *by ballot? ';'.'  We are of the opinion that  incorporation, at this stage of  local 'development, is premature. The population in , the  area -proposed for ; incorporation,, totals some . 400 people,  children-included! The recently proposed scheme for-.small  communities, such as Seehelt,  which was announced "by the  provincial government should  be awaited. Why all this* rush?  On Oct. 18, I received from  the deputy minister of municipalities, advice that letters  patent may be granted on the  petition for incorporation of  Seehelt as a municipality: I  replied on Oct. 21, to the deputy minister' that in conformity with my letter of Sept.  20, I am requesting that a  plebiscite be held en this contentious issue.

Whilst I am by no means  opposed to such an important jpart of this province becoming organized under certain circumstances, I am of  the opinion that the property  owriers in the area concerned  should first be enlightened of  suitable plans towards . devel-  openient by local management  and also t0' the additional taxation and licensing to which  they" might be -committed by  mis-management.  I have been given to understand 'that this appointment  ican be completed by. mere  petition which I believe has  already been submitted to the  department of municipal affairs with tlie necessary majority and all that is now re- .  quired is a suitable advertisement in this journal.      ,} \  I would* therefore like tb  urge all taxpayers concerned  to voice their opinions without delay either by contact  direct with the department at  Victoria or by meeting in protest until proper consideration  has been given.

( Revoking Fund ) This  brought out considerable discussion, much of it pointing,  to the desire' of many municipalities to have access to a  fund from which they might  draw or borrow, money to  carry on the work, early in  the year, and before any im-,  portent revenues.had been rer  ceived, This does not seem to  be the real (or sole) purpose.,  of the resolution, but 'seemed.  t0 be the biggest worry of  many delegates, it was of some  satisfaction to us to realize  that this Village seems to have  solved at least in part, this  question by the practice of  several years past of having a  carry-over of cash at the enid  of the year, enabling us to go  forward' with' p f o j e c ted;  work as soon as weather is  suitable, and- re-payihg this advance later in the year, thus  saving interest and; finance  costs.  The department men, and  the minister, Hon. Mr. Black  in particular, stressed the point  "that the government was not  trying to force any unwanted  legislation, but did want to get  all possible advice and sugr  gestions from those who would  have the duty of working;with  the act, so that it would be as  foolproof vas< possible.  It. did appear .to us that it  'les a big; and involvedfnjatter,  ^rid while it.is desirable.to get.  faction.as soon, as possible,  there is no real urgency, and,  it would be<he^/tO; giyerit(full,  study, so that when, legislation  is adopted it will be as satisfactory, as-- can be 'devised;  (Garbage Dumps) From the  discussion it wfts interesting  to note" other municipalities  are having truble through adjacent unorganized, territory  making free iise of the municipally owned; garbage dump,  arid are finding" the load too  heavy to carry.

We talked to Mir. Baird  about new forms of assessment and?co_lector..roUsy which  apparently will be necessary,  to handle the additional work  of collecting and recording  school taxes. The, department  office does not appear to have,  any sample f forms that, would,  be useful as a!. guide, for   the  considerable amount    of-  new  printing.  We will have to be  getting busy    soon    preparing  for this; probably we can get  sorne. samples from other' municipality where    school    tqxes  have been collected, arid    re-  jriodel them to suit our needs.  It seems    likly   that   several  changes in. our account headings may be necessary, and it is  possible that tax    notices    in  future, may! net be as fully explanatory to the ratepayer as  the. present forms.    We    may  have to: pay   more    attention  to government    requirements,  arid, perhaps less to local demand; v  Wealso talked-, to, Mr. Baird  about, the needed, am,endmen,ts,  td the current expen^itiires,  by-J^w..W,e>think, orVat least  hope, tha.t'we, have, a fetter,  picture?, than,.'we had of. the  technical requirements, and;  may be. able,.to* come; up- with  a byrlaw.thiajt.wiU pass muster.

The tradition of Thanksgiving  said Mrs. Hodgson is as old  as mankind. To the early Israelites it was known as the  Feast of ingathering, when  entire families would go .on  holy pilgramages taking with  them the first fruits of the  Harvest^ to offer as thanksgiving to th e "Great Giver  of Good*' who caused their  flocks to increase arid their  vines to bear.  It was in 1621 .when the  Pilgrim Fathers "celebrated  their first thanksgiving.;��In  gratitude for a bounteous harvest after a year of extreme  hardship. Gov. Bradford seni  four riien out to,bring in game  for the celebration. They, returned laden with wild tur- ;  keys. '  These were rcasted: and served with' the fruits of the har-.  vest, and cakes and pies, thus'  began thanksgiving day as we .  know it,  with    feasting     arid  family reunions. It    was    not  until  almost  200 years    later  during the administration    of  Abraham  Lincoln,,-  that    the  day was proclaimed a national holiday.    In    Canada i    the  day was not  established until y  1872.  The speaker   concluded   by  reading excerpts from "Thanks-;  giving Memories"    by    Edwin ;  C.Hill.'.   These   revived    past  memories.

This was a very important  meeting and this writer, is  trying to figure out why the  managers of every team did  not make a maximum effort  to attend.  The three teams that were  not present are , in my opinion, the worst offenders when  it comes to registering squawks  about the way the league is  being operated.. If the managers and members of : these  teams are as interested in the  league as they let on I would  think that out of their 16  men aggregations they could  at ,least find :two or three, to  attend a meeting..  These teams, Firemen Pender harbour and Port Mellon,  are the ones that.have been,  harping all season about certain operations of the league.  A meeting such as this is the  place t0 clear these things up  but you cannot do it if you  are not there.  Basketball should be rollling  soon with all the teams < except Pender .ready to  go.  Soccer started last Sunday  with a fair turnout, and an-  .other practice and meeting  will be held at the high-school  field at 1 p.m.. Sunday. Anyone interested please attend.  Teams from other Peninsula  points, are welcome to help  ' form a league.  The^, Sports organizations of  the Peninsula^'lost'' a willing  and able friend last week.
