Mr. Forsberg is  minister of Garden St. Methodist  church in Bellingham.  The event was held in Danny's Dining room, Nov. 22  with 46 present including  guests and wives of guests  and members. A special steak  dinner; was served. V  During the. evening  flat cake was brought to .the  head table with one candle  burning, brightly ��� which  President Harold Wilson blew  out with great ease". The cake  was made and. presented to  the club by Bill Smith of the  Village Bakeryt at Sechelt.  Later it was carved and distributed.  Mr. Forsberg took his theme  a  able to fight pressure to conform ��� simply;because everyone else did the same thing. He  thought it would be better  if everyone could be himself  or herself and to stand out and  be different when it is, necessary and as long as it was  right. / y  Speaking of conforming he  mentioned pressure from children, forcing parents to conform because "that was what  other parents Were doing."  He did not agree with this at-  required to live away from  home to take advanced schooling.

One group, up to eight years  attends at 10.15, when Mrs.  McKibbin reads stories. From  eight years and up gather at  11 a.m. when Mrs. Wortman  reads.  The first Saturday saw 16  far the good of the whole as children present and 44 attended the two periods last week.  The two readers hope to interest others in the idea and  to take over on the odd Sat.  It is also hoped arrangements  will be made so the children  can take out library books at  this period.

Perhaps we should add in case any historians of the  future will be reading The Coast News, that this S-D Day  occurs   during   the  "enlightened" year- of 1955 anno domini.  Here are some facts sent out witk data about S-D day: The  traffic accident problem is a national one; almost every person  has a neighbor, friend or member of a family injured in a  traffic accident at some time "*��� and��� the traffic problem is  with us every hour of the day; '.'������'������  Considering all the cash spent on education, future historians  will wonder what kind of sense came out of our educational  system when we were, able to solve the A-bomb and H-bomb-  mysteries and develop.automation in our factories but we had  to hold S-D Days to help educate us to save our lives.  .We have learned to save time by. using this or that gadget  but we have, not learned how to avoid the terrible traffic toll,  2586 traffic deaths in Canada last year.  Maybe life has become cheap ���_ too cheap.  Music in schools  An all out campaign to gain public support for a school of  music at the "University of British Columbia has been launched  by d special committee of the Community Arts Council of  Vancouver.  Close to-500 citizens throughout the province have been  asked to assist in the campaign, aimed at convincing the provincial government in Victoria of the need for such a school  at U.B.C.  More than 1,000 copies of an extensive brief outlining this  "grasss roots" movement have been distributed to key 'citizens throughout B.C. *'.'���"'  These representatives are being urged to circulate the briefs  to their friends, clubs and', organizations. The Community Arts  Council hopes those contacted will petition Minister of Education Ray Williston in Victoria by letter asking for the establishment of the school.  In view of the fact- there; is a movement on foot to have  music in Gibsons High School the above should prove interesting to those supporting the movement and should offer  them strength in their endeavors.  To some people music is as necessary as meat with a meal.  It will do no youngster harm t0 be able to play an inusti-ument  or just read music. .  Perhaps the present day trend for an - average child may  have too big a hold on some people and they are like the  mother who was worried because her youngster preferred to  play the piano instead of going out to join the gang raising  cain. Some children raise cain in their own peculiar fashion ���  on the piano, violin or what have you. Long 'may it continue.   j  - o  LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, ONCE  AGAIN.  Apparently members of the roads department crew for the  Sunshine Coast read The Coast News editorials because after  last week's issue that came out on Thursday there were piles  of sand deposited at various hills on Friday, for use in the  event of slippery road surfaces; Motorists thank ycu, roads0  department employees.  Calling attention to the  .- steady...depletion of-world ^sup- \  .plies of raw materials, . the  1955 Canada Year Book says  that the development of Canada's north is a challenge for  today's Canadians.        '  In a special article, officials  cf the department of northern affairs and natural resources intimate that only the  barest start has been made in.  meeting the challenge of that  development. "Only the first  faint imprints of civilization  are beginning to appear in a  land that is left almost unmarked by its generations of  shifting, nomadic people," the  article states.  Pointing out that the shortest air route between the  United States and. Russia is  over the Canadian north, tlie  article goes on to say that the  Geo-political position of the  Northland makes it--a factor  of significance in world affairs  and predicts that its develop-  - ment-will follow unprecedented courses "because the frontier is being tamed by an adullf  country with all the 20th century techniques behind it; because it is the aeroplane and  not the covered wagon that  penetrates the u h'mapped  places."  The accent on .the North  is a recurring one in the  latest edition of the official  government record of Canadian  progress and current conditions. In a 7,500 word article  on Canada's commercial fisheries resources, the official  view is expressed that "the  greatest opportunities for expansion of the fresh water  fisheries lies in > Canada's  northern areas." The article  notes that "the Yukon and  Northwest Territories contain  two of the earth's largest lakes '.  and tw0 mighty rivers, besides  literally    thousands of -lesser  waters, many of-which have  not been explored," and that  "on the northern edges of  the continent is the Arctic  coast, which extendi roughly  3 0,000 miles from the _ering  Sea to Hudson Strait."  Besides containing revised  basic textual and statistical  material, almost every chapter carries material of tropical  interest. A survey of scientific  and industrial research in Canada, including research in  the atomic field, for example-  shows that Canadian industries now possess research, fa.cil-  lities, some of them quite extensive.  More than 360 of,the member companies of the Canadian  Manufacturers Association tb-  ciayV maintain labratbrZies, in  Which over 3,100 persons are  employed in research, testing  6f control. While the main  bulk of industrial .research ih  th�� past has been done under  government auspices, the current Canadian pattern of research indicates that a steadily increasing portion of this  work is'being undertaken, by  industry.  Of, particular interest in the  light of .current discussions of  a national health plan is the  Year Book's review, of the  preliminary results of the  Canadian / Sickness Survey -  the first nation-wide study of  the prevalence cf illness in  the general population* of Canada. The'survey .. shows that  almost 40% of each dollar^  expended on health by Canadian families is ��� spent for  various medical, hospital or  combined prepayment plans.  Direct payment for physicians'  services take an estimated  .23.5%   of  the   family     health  dollar, direct payments for  hospital care .12.4% .and/Vdeti-  tai services 8.8%. The survey  als0 provides such information as the . average number  of days sickness per year per  Canadian and the number of  calls made by    doctors    each  " year per 1,000 population.

By a  special concession, a limited  number of paper bound copies  is set aside for school teachers  ' and students arid ministers of  religion.

LETTERS to EDITOR  Who Pays For  Advertising  ?  ���NOT the newspaper reader,   because    he  saves  both  time and  money  by  shopping  the wide selection of honest values offered  through the advertising columns!  ���NOT   the advertiser, because advertising  always returns a profit when it is used cor--  rectly and consistently!  ���NOT  the publisher, because of the hundreds, of firms who profitably   invest  hundreds of thousands of dollars in newspaper  advertising!  The business which the non-advetiser loses  pays the cost of advertisng and ALSO  returns a nice profit to .the fellow - who  does advertise! HOPING for more business is not as effective as inviting more  business!  EVERY LINE OF ADVERTISING  IN THE PAPER IS PAID FOR BY  THE FELLOW WHO  DOESN'T ADVERTISE!  (Reprinted from Editor & Publisher   magazine  August 9, 1952 issue.)  SAND   ON   HILLS  Editor: Herewith some facts  in answer to your editorial  of criticism in- regard to the  local department of highways.  1. Your supposition that the  men went home after 4.30 and  left the- poor defenceless cit-;  izenry to their own defences!  against the elements is, like  a lot more of that editorial, in  error.  For the record, one three-  man crew worked sanding local hills until 9.45 p.m. At, 2  a.m. another crew, complete  with mobile shovel and truck  went out sanding hills and got  back to bed 5,30 in the morning. One other three man  crew miade it in for supper  at 9 that night. They all had  already done one day's work  at Mission bridge attempting  to keep the traffic flowing.  2. For the edification of  armchair critics it is useless  putting sand on a hill when  it is snowing, but we do just  that quite often in a vain attempt to* help, to even the  smallest degree.  3. Your suggestion that the  foreman. being on holiday  would materially alter conditions here . is also wrong. We  have a very; capable relief  foreman with more than forty  years local experience. This  local unit of highway workers  have in their care more than  $80,000 worth of equipment,  it is hardly likely that foreman Art Pilling would leave  that without some supervision.  4. It may be hard, to believe but on the night in question snow was falling in many  places other than the. Gibsons*  hill.  Rat Portage hill had to be  sanded1 twice that night! Davis  Bay hill had its quota of tangled cars and trucks.' ISfearly  a foot of show fell in the Port ���  Mellon area and there was a  seven-mile-long tie up in the  Fraser Canyon with only eight  inches of snow. That tie up  involved buses, cars, trucks  and trains. Add to that, .that  there are approximately, eight  weekly newspapers covering  that area and you can imagine  how tough it must be for the ���  department's men to handle  all that blame.  5. At one time this fall we   ���  had sand On the Gibsons Hill  in readiness for such an emer  gency but most of it had been  used for starting cuttings, filling window�� boxes, cement  mixing and for following the  ��nhous,e. broken pup*  6. Now may be a good time  t0 point out that road foremen as members of the civil  servants commission are forbidden to take part in letter  writing to editors or ih any  public controversy. Sniping at  them is somewhat unfair. There  are lots of targets for " the  willing gunners, they'are the  officials in Vancouver, New  Westminster and Victoria.  These officials of the department can and will answer  your questions. Go to it and  happy hunting.  W.A. (Bill) Sutherland  Editor's note: The editor and  the general public can thank  Mr. Sutherland for his spirited  defence of the roads dept.  However the base of Gibsons  hill was the real bottleneck  but the roads department did  net even check on the situation by telephone tQ find out  if help was needed. Once  again it can be pointed out  that organization is, a wonder,  ful thing. The roads department draws deserved thanks  elsewhere on this page for the  haste in which sand was placed  on various hills shortly after  the storm.  NEW CENOTAPH  Editor:. Though your . valuable paper, I would like t��  say a few words about the  new Cenotaph at Roberts  Creek.  Reading an article concerning this Cenotaph, in The  Coast News, I was surprised  that no mention was made of  the person who was largely  responsible, for this worthwhile  project." I am referring to Mr.  Robert Cumming, president of  Roberts Creek Branch of the  Canadian Legion. Without his  tireless efforts, and leadership  we would not have a Cenotaph  in Roberts Creek today, and  he certainly has congratula_  tions  coming to him.  Also Mr. i Barnes deserves  praise for the wonderful -job  he made in building this Cenotaph, it is the work of a real  artist and something Roberts  Creek can be proud of.

"Hon. R.E. Sommers  Minister of Lands &   Forests  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir: ;' ,,.v������'"'���'  It has been brought to the  notice of our Board of Commissioners that your office  has, or is about to, refuse to  renew a foreshore lease,. - or  land use permit, of temporary  tenure, formerly held by a  group of local logging operators under trusteeship, we  understand, of Eric Inglis, TFred  Holland and Robert Younie.  The purpose of the lease, or  use-permit, has been the booming of logs.  This area is within the  boundaries of this Village Municipality, as extended by Or-  der-in-Council, in 1950. The ���  lease appears to have originally been granted prior to  that date. ���        .  ,, It has been the practice of  your office in any case involving foreshore leases, or  land-use permits, within this  Village to refer such ques- .  tions to our board for their ,  opinion before taking final  action. While your- office, of  course has the final decision  they4 have usually acted, upon  any recommendation made by  our   board     in    any    specific  case. This practice seems to  have been' mutually satisfactory.  However,' in the case referred to above our board does  not seem to have been infprm-.  ed .of any developments .lead-"  "ing up to the7 apparently :impending refusal to renew.  Without having knowledge: of  the data' On file at your office our board at this time  would riot presume to offer  ���any definate opinion as to the  desirability, or. otherwise,.'. of  renewal..  However, we would beg to  submit the following for your  consideration:  1. The foreshore  lease,    or  Use permit, has been a source  of  some  taxation   revenue  to"  this Village..      .  2. The logging industry  has been for many years, and'  continues to be, a major  source of local income. Debarment from booming grounds  seriously affect this business'  and the welfare of those engaged:  3. The Board of Commissioners have not thus far  found the use of the booming ground in any way detrimental to municipal interests  or advantage.  We would therefore respect-  fullf suggest" that no final action be ''taken in this matter  until vfullvj rinformation, ybothv  for 'Slid* against, 7�� be comes  Available. Vv7 ; y:,  ..'...,  Yours   very   truly  ROBERT    BURNS  Clerk"  In  reply to the above    letter  the board was     informed  cf a date for a hearing of the  application 'to  be held at the  School Hall. The    clerk    was  ins_r.ucted'to attend that hearing, in order    to    report    on  proceedings; at least one Commissioner was  also in    attendance.  The reports    of    these  men, combined . with , a transcript furnished by the government agent of stenographic  notes taken at the hearing has.  been submitted to the board  for  their   'study._    ....  It is thus.--quite evident that  ' any statements made. charging  ��� the Board of Commissioners  with support of either side in  the controversy are very misleading. The board has not  done so thus far. Neither has  is expressed any opinion as  to the soundness of the various allegations, some of them  quite irrelevant, made at the  hearing. Quite possibly, as a  body concerned with the  interests of all the rate,  payers of the village it should  do so; but this should be done  only after careful assessment  of the worth of all the available evidence.  The customary! method for  expressing the board's opinion  in matters of this kind is in  reply to the formal inquiry  from,the Department of Lands  & Forests. In the case of this  particular permit, no such inquiry has ever been received  Coast News  Dec.   1   1955      3  by the board.

As it emerges  from the hot box it comes under knives that cut it simultaneously into 30 by 30  sheets and in piles of 450  pounds no more, no less.

But  it was apparent only because  the parties had to back track  to a point where the liquor  was recovered from the pulp  mix and _ , diverted . towards. ,  tanks'-for recovery operations.  This comes under the heading of chemical recovery.. departments where the spent  cooking solutions are regenerated through a complex chemical process involving evaporation, and the burning of .certain residues, dissolving /the  ash' which is treated with  quicklime and then recovering  the quicklime for further use.  It appeared as one went  along that the *only part of  the tree so far not used was  the leaf but Dan Williamson  the manager was of the opinion something may be done  about that scon.  There are four departments  in the recovery section, the  evaporators, recovery boiler,  causticizing plant and the  lime kiln. To run oyer them'  quickly, which 7is easier done  on paper than visually, the  spent cooking liquor with up  to 15 pbiinds of solids arid 85  pounds of water is reduced to  eight pounds of water and 15  pounds of chemicals which go  to the furnaces. ,  These furnaces do a double  duty. The spent cooking solution is burned and the-molten  ash runs down, popping as it  hits a tank of water where it  dissolves into green liquor.  The other',duty of these furnaces is .'to provide steam, used  throughout the" plant.  In the causticizing process in  a series of tanks quicklime is  added to convert the liquor  into an active cookiufg solution  again and'* if starts Von its journey! back to the cooking digesters but before this happens the  lime is ; reconverted to quicklime in a kiln which seems  miles' long arid is forever turning.

Progress was made in developing ways of catching and  tagging salmon on their way  to sea. A search for characteristics'of Asiatic and American  salmon by which they can be  distinguished on the high seas  is showing promise. Examination of scales to determine  the years spent in fresh and  salt water, studies < of bone. ;  structures,, ��� measurements and  chemical "composition are already revealing differences between stocks that spawn in  Various areas.  Fishing by research vessels  has greatly increased the knowledge as to where the various  salmon stocks occur in the  high seas, research vessels of  the three countries cb-operat-  . ed during the year 7 in' t&fe  greatest single pceariqgraphic  survey? so far, providing: a  background for distribution of  the stocks.  Next year the search Vfor  means of distinguishing the  various salmon stocks will be  continued and intensified.- "In  the largest co-ordinated program ever undertaken, research , vessels of the three  countries will catch samples  of salmon from the entire; area  where they occur in the North  - Pacific and the Bering Sea.  These will be compared with  samples from fresh waters* tb  show where the stocks from  the various river system go  to in the sea.  Oceanographic surveys will  show how salmon distribution  is influenced by temperature,  currents and abundace of food.  Against this background movements will be studied by more  intensive tagging of large and  small salmon.  The entire program will be  co-ordinated by common planing and by the exchange of  material, information and technical personnel where possible.  Canada will spend much more  effort in money, men and  ships  next year. .  The three countries  it    was  Charming Necklaces.  Ear-rings.  Bracelets   and Rings  That add just thai touch!

Under such circumstances we can but summon  our courage and by the grace  of God do our best.  Several years ago; a squadron of the British Navy lay. at  anchor in  a fine natural harbour on the east coast of Scot,  land. The ships were being refuelled before proceeding elsewhere. Unexpectedly a    storm  arose and its fury was    such  -that the naval    ships    chafed  and fretted-at their moorings,  chains were snapped and in a  few hours a    great   deal    of  damage was done. The hurri-^  acahe came frcaii the east aind  ; for. a time it looked as if the  vessel would be dashed- against  the rocks. ' "There is only one  .thing to do," said the    com-  ���': mander, "we must put out to  sea and face the storm."    So  the ships ��� faced the hurricane  and found safety    by ���'��� doing  what at firstAseemed a    foolhardy thing.  We often hear people talk  abovUt a sheltered life,; a life  where one is shielded and pro.  tected from unpleasent experiences. Actually there is no such  thing; If one does try to avoid  danger and difficulty, disaster  is sure 7to follow. ,  In Pilgrim's Progress. John  Bunyan tells of Mr. Timidity  who was always trying to  avoid taking any kind of  risks. He spent his life waiting until he was absolutely  safe and sure about everything before he made a move.  The result was that instead of  being safe his want of courage  was his chief undoing. Most of  the difficulties we meet could  easily be overcome if we were  brave enough* to face, them  squarely.       y  There is a good illustration  elf this in the Old Testament.  As the Israelites approached  Canaan spies were sent out to  view , the land and to make a  report.    They    returned     and  , made their report    to    Moses  and Aaron. They said it was  wonderful land with abundant,  water and fertile soil. It was  V a land of wheat   and   barley  and such fruit    as    they    had  y never, -yhe fore seen. They  brought a cluster of grapes so  large that it required two men  to carry it. So far it was a  magnificent report but they  added: "We were not able to  go against the people for they  were stronger than we ��� We V  saw giants, the sons of Anak,  and we were in our own sight  as grass-hoppers and so we  were in their sight."  Braver men spoke up and  urged a forward movement,  such men as Joshua and Caleb.  So the Israelites entered  the land and possesed it. And  just here. is an interesting  thing; nothing was ever seen  or heard of any giants. No  doubt there were    some   tall  " men there but their size was  greatly exaggerated. In the  eyes of the timid spies fear  magnified difficulties. They  were fearful with.nothing to; be  afraid of.; Joshua, like, the  British Naval commander,  knew that the way out of  danger was to face and conquer it. There is truth in this  old  verse by  Aaron Hill:  Tender handed stroke, a  nettle,  And it stings ycu for your  pains,  Grasp it like a man of.  mettle,  And it soft as silk remains.  Our  quotation  to-day is by  St. Paulrl can do all    things  through  Christ who   strength-  eneth me.

The 1955 budget required  $347,120,- of which government  grants covered $207,099; miscellaneous revenue, $9,710,  and rural taxation but $130,  311. The 1955 assessed values  in the. Sechelt District total  almost twelve and three quarter millions.  A list of improvements to  the various areas were given,  including grounds at the Pender Harbour and, Elphinstone  schools, chemical toilet and  Storeroom facilities at. Nelson  Island, washrooms tiled at  Pender Harbour, and supplied  with hot water at Elphinstone ���  play area at Sechelt lined, and  wiring for, Halfmoon Bay.  Almost $5,000 was Vset aside  for equipment.  The urgent need for an extensive building program : was  stressed in the report. Overcrowding was reported from  most schools, turning into  classrooms of facilities intended for other student use was  described, including the stage  and student activities rooms,  student rooms, etc.  The board hopes that a bylaw covering facilities will be  ready for submission soon,  in  ���order to proceed with building  early in   1956.  7 A brief mention was made  of the convention of trustees  in Qualicum in September,  and the topics under discussion there.  The dental program was reported again  in operation.  The board thanked the Parent _ Teacher. association for  their help and, co-operation,  for their arranging sports days  and talent nights, and for  their supplying books , and  equipment for student use.
