The registration cut off  here has caused a lot of  protest. A big share of it of  course is just talk: which.  :aip doubj: will be used as  (political fodder for those  who have nothing better to  offer. However _ in some  cases people did have a legitimate prolest and for this  reason I would like to make  the following clear. *  I gave my time anl effort  free that people here would  have an opportunity to register^ ; Mr; J.V. Gaspard of  Powell River, registrar of  voters was solely ^sponsible for arrangements and  cut-off here. He is a. full  time government agent appointed to the Powell River  station about five years  ago under the Coalition  government, and. as such a.  quick election was an eventuality that he- should have  been prepared for. He said  he had word from headquar-  Car pus  wharf  Jack Marrohybf Gibsons  and Ruben Feldstem of Gibsons narrowly escaped injury when. Jack Marron's  car was pushed into Howe  Sound from Gibsons wharf  just after midnight Saturday.  Jack was loading perishable express from the bus  office with Ruben when a  run-away tow truck of Buster's Towing from Vancouver struck ��the carr and,, pushed it -into: the- water. The  tow-truck was prevented  from plunging afjer it by  the cable attached to the  towed dump truck. According, to Jack Marron, it teetered on the bumper timber  when it stopped-  The towing truck, with  i,ts tow. was parked oh the  rani^j7ready for the first  morning ferry, when the  brakes failed.  Buster's Towing sent out  a truck Sunday morning,  which raised the.car from  the.: Sound* loaded it and  took it to Vancouver.  '��� Jack says he recovered  his brief case, but the contents of tlie car including  $he perishables, all of which  had been loaded but one bag  of cabbage, was lost.  Fine showing  by Calf club  ���., Eight ���'������ youngsters won  prizes at y the Sunshine  Coast Fall Fair in the Kiwanis Junior Calf club  competition. This is the  largest prize list so far for  this type of classification.  The entries were all in excellent shape s &n(l drew  favourable comment from  .

George Hopkins, submitted by a Gibsons Social  Credit delegation as candidate for nomination at the  Social Credit coference . in  Powell River, did no1': win  the nomination as Mr Robert J. Muir of Powell River  won by a majority vote.  Socred delegates from  Gibsons and the Peninsula  had.been informed that.the  vd'.e was to have been taken  from delegates only, and  were suprised when voting  was open to the public.  However, George states,,  he believes Mr Muir is better qualified than he for the -  ' work, and has pledged    to  support hint *���- >-*** ,  Jules' Mainil' was select-'  ed by the Mackenzie riding  Liberal association meeting  in Gibsons Saturday night  when a delegation including  association officers from  Powell   tRiver   attended    a  , nominations meeting in the  "Parish hall-7  At 3this    meeting    Batt  Mclntyre of Powell    River  outlined     federal      Liberal  government    achievements  and urged a return Tto   the  liberal fold of,; those   .who  had stepped aside for other  parties.

There was a delegation of  19 persons,, from Powell  River and in all there were  some 60 persons at the  meeting. Mr Mainil was  nominated by Mrs S. Fallows and seconded by H.U.  Kennett;  In his acceptance speech  Mr Manil was brief and in  commen/ting on the Sommers case said that the Bennett government was unjust  and unfair to the cabinet  minister and. the general  public. If there was something wrong it was monumental gaul not to have  done something about it.  Mr Mainil said.-  >'.' Tony Gargrave, MLA in  the last legislature spoke  Mondajr night in the Legion  hall also discussed the Sommers case and said that an  inquiry should have been  held to prove guilt or inno-  '.. cence. Mr Gargrave outlined  ���' CCF policy  which included  hydro sites as    public    domain, an improved "method  of handling forest manage-.  men,t, equity for, agriculture;  with industry, fair dealings  for labour    and    low    cost^  housing for those unable to  afford present cos'ts.    Natural gas    should be    under  public control, he said. 7  Mr Bennett's rebate of  $28 on assessments he regarded as a bribe for voters,  and an insult to the intelli-:  gence of the voters. He also  urged public auto insurance.  Owing to the lack of ;  space reports on political  meetings are curtailed for  this issue but each candidate will have a chance to  state his reasons for being  elected in later issues.  winner .  local woman  Mrs Jean Wyngaert of  Gibsons was a big winner  at the PNE, being given  the Home Maker's " Award  for her display of. needlework, preserving and    bak-  "*����� ..J-;,.. ���  She was presented at tlie  Outdoor Thea^e on ,the  grounds .Wednesday, and  had the privilege of decorating tbev winning; horse in  one of the rarefe/ c  Frank Wyngaert also was  a bigJwinner with his poultry exhibits.      7 ,  Mrs Wyngaert won 13  firsts: Sponge, spiced and  layer cakes; blackberry,  crabapple, black .. currant  and wild fruV; jellies;; can;  ned raspberries,..." strawberries, cherries and fruit; dill  pickles and catsup.

Committee  makes report  The meeting of the Roberts  Creek Recreation Park Committee on Adgust 14 was an  open meeting so that the pubic might hear a report of  what had been accomplished  by this committee since its  formation;  Mr George Mortimer,  president; was in the chair.  He gave a concise outline of  the progress that had so far  been made, read the names  .^thfe officers -a$d; elirectorsA  which included "reprfes'^hfactives from all the organizations in Roberts Creek.  After a full discussion it  was moved and seconded and  carried that the aims   and  objects of the committee and  the work done to date fe endorsed.   A   committee   of  three; the president,    Paul  Skytte and A. Danroth were  elected to determine an agreement with the owner of a'  property whch is considered  by   the    Recreation    Park  Coipmittee   as   ideal for a  real sports field.

The Recreation Park Committee was responsible for  the selecting of a fair queen  to represent Roberts Creek  and ..provided her with  suitable robes.  School bells will ring for  students of Elphinstone  high school oh Wednesday.  Sept. 5, ending the summer  vacation. Teachers ' will get  into the. harness one day  earlier, meeting Tuesdays  Sept. 4 for staff conferences.  : Mr: W.S.

Following the opening exercises students will  go- to home rooms for registration, payment of textbook rental fees and ^ the  making out of time-tables-.  They will >then proceed to  regular classes for the remainder of the day.  Mr Potter stated it is  important.that all students  be present for registration  as crowded conditions make  it necessary that maximum  numbers be known at ��� the  opening of school.  Students should have with  them their text-book rental  fees. This is $3.50 for students in Grades VH> VIII,  and IX and $4 for those ,iu  Grades X, XL and XIL  Text books cannot be issued  until this fee has been  "paid. Students should also  come prepared with notebooks land other essentia  equipment.  es  A LONG SWIM  With no practice beforehand, Jim Edwards, 67, a  resident of Soames point  accompanied by Mrs Gloria  Fyles in a boat swam across  to Keats Island. Arriving  there he rested and *.hen  rowed back home.  Served together in same squadron  John-Mattthews and Keith'  Wright, who served in the  same air squadron in World  War II without knowing  each other, have worked together in the growing business in Roberts Creek since  1949, and are now partner-  owners of the new Supervalu store in Gibsons.  Keith, who grew up in  Saskatchewan, first came to  Roberts Creek in 1947, worked for a time for Jackson's  Logging; managed the Roberts Creek co-operative store  at the head of the wharf for  eight montlvs, and then  went into partnership with  John Mat*'hews on the purchase of E. Sha\y's grocery  there in June 1940.  John Matthews, who grew  up in  Roberts Creel;,    and  went to jschool in Vacouver  was in the Ferry Command  and a Bombing Command in  the Airforce- Afi:er the war,  he workel for a time in Vancouver at various jobs before  returning to Roberts Creek  to go into the grocery business. John: is married with  his home at Roberts Creek.  Keith has maintained a bachelor apartment ther?.  The first expansion was  the purchase of ihe Grayson  Grocery in-:Gibsons in 1954  which Keith has managed  since that time. In December 1955 the expansion which  culminated .in the new store  was planned. Delays in ob-  'taining property, in having  plans ratified and other matters caused hold-ups in the  commencement of the building.  Continued development  program for Super-Valu  Stores will account for expenditure of over $4,000,000  according to the current  program announced by M.S.  Duffus, manager of retail  operation. Kelly, Douglas  and Co. Limited.  Five of the 15.000 foot  foot supermarkets are  for the Lower Mainland  area, and a sixth store approximately 16,000 feet is  part of the CityCentre shopping development in Kitimat. One of these supermarkets will be- a part of the  million dollar shopping centre at Lynn Valley and  Mountain Highway. North  Vancouver.  Super-Valu will have 75  stores operating in British  Columbia by tlie end of 1956.  \[yFi^v^6^$r^ea^yptovm--  ided the music for the members of the Mary Isedale  school of dancing who gave  an exhibition of Highland  dancing at the Sunshine  Coast fall fair.

HI NEIGHBOUR  Once I walked along, the  main street of a small town  with a man who has lived  there for 40 years. He seem.,  ed to know everybody, and  if he didn't stop and speak  he waved his hand. "it seems  to me," I said, "That you  know even the dogs and ca+s  in this town."  P*. may know all the dogs,'>  he answered, "But I am not  so sure   about   the cats.' I  -have known this man since  There will be considerable talk for the next few  weeks about how good or how badly members of the  political fraternity view each other. As far as The Coast  Hews is concerned any political candidate in or out of office    we were in college together    day   he   began to   cultivate  and down the platform of a  little railway station in England. Some young people  were there haying lots of  fun when one of them said:  Isn' t that a solemn man;  his face would be a good advertisement   for a   vinegar  factory.'  ���'�����.'*���    *���  Unfortunately, my friend  overheard the remark and it  made him do some thinking.  Is it true, he asked himself,  that I look as crusty and as  sour as that?    From    that  'You can always tell a pagan  by his bickering and quar..  relsomness and you can re.,  cognize a Christian by his  happiness.'

British Columbia's Social -Credit government has done  teome good work. Any government in office should  do good work. It has the taxpayers' money to play with.  However there are other considerations that go to make  up7 government. The one that should stick out in the people's  Blinds is the moral issue.  Should a government allow a cabinet minister to take  sefuge behind the skirts of justice in a matter that concerns  the entire electorate ? To The Coast News, this appears to  ��e the crux of the present political campaign.  If members of government can hie themselves to court  and tie a public matter in litigation which could be unend"  ing, it is time for a fresh moral concept. It could mean  that from now on no public scandal could be aired in an  open manner because the matter was before a court..  If Mr. Bennett was assured of Mr. Summers' innocence  he should state so in language of the type the voter can  Understand. So far he has maintained a silence which can  Hardly be termed dignified. At the moment we are not concerned with Mr. Sommers' case but we are concerned with  the manner in which the public is being denied the right  to decide the issue before it casts a vote.  It would appear, based on the temper of certain political  parties and the temper of the powerful Vancouver press  that Mr. Bennett is in for a rough ride. He may emerge  victorious but it will not *make politics smell any sweeter.  Is the moral issue a potent one? Only the voter has the  answer. Does he or she care? The ballot will tell.  and he has always been the  same; good-natured and  friendly.  It is a great advantage to  have a disposition like that.  Everybody likes to be recognized and greeted,-especially when the greeting  is cheerful and sincere.

The Canadian Scottish  Despatches     from     Overseas  <3uring  World  War  II always,  for security reasons, read "with  a'British   Columbia  Regiment"  M reporting stories of the Canadian   Army   relating   to   our  British  Columbia  units and  as  often   as   not   they   dealt  with  The   Canadian   Scottish   Regiment.   Now   the   Regiment   is  ���setting out to tell the story be-  Sind the headlines.  While this history will be  primarily that of the overseas  Battalion in 1939-45, it will also  ���deal at length with the period  Setween the wars and the post  war period.  The trustees have named Mr  B. H. Roy to write the History.  He has a master's degree in  Sistory, served overseas himself, and worked in the post war  jrears with the Historical Sec-  flori at Canadian Army Headquarters. He is well qualified-  to undertake this important  work.  Aside from contacting those  who served in the regiment  during the above years this his-  ibry will appeal to next of kin  and relatives of those who served, and to the many friends of  The Canadian Scottish Regiment throughout the Province.  Everyone concerned with the  preparation of this important  historical record agrees that  stories from the soldier in the  ranks and personal opinions of  selected "actions" and humorous  incidents can make the histpry  a-living and breathing, record j>f  the life of the regiment, instead  of a rewrite of official records.  The historian needs these personal narratives. All veterans  of the regiment are asked to  send them in now.  a lot of ; sunshine.

Mackenzie is such a large  ��sd interesting riding ��� that  31 thought you would like to  aSSifk over my shoulder as I  *aat Ocean Falls, Bella  ���&ola, Gibsons Landing,  Howell River and Woodfibre.  Through the three columns that I will be able to  wi'te this side of September  71$, (polling day) I also hope  {!*�� be able to interpret in a  IGpcsonal way i';he CCF views  ose such matters as Public  Jfwer, hospital care for the  ts&ronically ill, forestry prob-  'sferis and other election is-  issss- I also firmly believe  ���Seat V he Sturdy-Sommers  ��sse is an issue in this cam-  Spign.  My first meeting was  iifeTd at Gibsons. Gibsons  Seas a fond place in the  Mshds of CCF'ers because  3&S, Woodsworth, the national founder of dhe CCF  r^ent quite a few years as  arahister of a small church  Ukere when Gibsons was  ssr3l a pioneer settlement.  At Gibson I related my  s&titude ,to the Sturdy-  iiSsmmers case. The chief  -og&estion that people asked  m. Gibsons was; how is  M possible for our Premier .  "fife say "no comment" for  r^ven long months after one  fsC his chief minis)fcers, Mr  Robert Sommers, former  Minister of Lands and For-  flBte has been accused by a  Vancouver lawyer, Mr  Surdy of accepting bribes?  The fantastic view point  as not that a minister was  accused of accepting money  'asocfer unusual cireumstan-  <bbrf, or that I may think the  ���S&rmer minister guilty or  asf guilty. Let me say rigM  away I have not the foggiest  idea whether Mr Sommer's  is guilty as accused or not.  I do not know. I have not  seen the evidence and would  not wish to see it if it was  offered jso me-  The fantastic fact of the  \Vhole thing is that the government, Mr Bennett and  Mr Bonner, pretend not to  see or hear this political  time bomb. Let me make  this qu.V,e clear. The guilt or  innocence of the former minister is not before the courts.  When Mr Sturdy first  went to Mr Bonner las|; December with that "certain  body of evidence" Mr Bonner refused to take any action. After a gresj'; deal of  legislative and public criti-  sism Mr Bonner eventually  refered the matter to 'the  RCMP. So far ;:he public  have not learned of the results of this report, and the  government have taken no  steps to clear or charge the  former minister. This is not  fair to the ex-minister or to  the public. The charges were  .made seven months ago and  this government has taken  no steps to set its own  house in order.  All that has happened is  that Mr Sommers has taken  private suV; for libel against  Mr Sturdy. The government  has done nothing!  We suspect in the CCF  that the election has been-  called now, quickly, };o prevent the public from getting  all the facts- Surely the public will explode at this political duplicity.  By the time this column  appears in print I will have  visited Woodfibre, Port Mellon and be back in Powell  River in time to commence  the second round of meel/  ings and visits to the northern part of the riding at  Ocean Falls and Bella  Coola.
