Anthony     John     Gargrave,  : Four candidates were nominated for Mackenzie riding  in the provincial election,  Sept. 19. This was announced  following close of nominations  Tuesday by J.S.P.

This, was  dropped because   of  isorsanized  ", In memory of/three boys  who met d^ath on the--high-;'  way this year, young men of  the Peninsula have formed a  driver'sclub, Which will be a  big step in" the direction ofv  safer driving.  These boys, from 16 years  and up, are serious about their  club and the aims of this club.  TKey want the public to realize that it will make young  drivers^"fully'aware of the potential danger of fast 'driving.  A main feature will be to  learn more about the actual  mechanics of their cars, and  to keep them in safe running  condition. The only kind of  show put on by the club for  the public to view will be  tests in skill, not speed.  Only holders of driver's licences can join the clubhand  if any member sees another  disobeying the law on the  highway a ��� stiff fine will, be  assessed 'by the officers of  the club.  y.^Bill IVTorrison was elected  ptesidierit, and Dave Rumley,  vice-president at the first meeting^ at; the home of'Mr. and  Mrs. .Morrison, on Wed. , Aug.  297,:;,:,''  Entry fee' decided upon is  $6,' and further dues -will be  $2 monthly. The cars of all  members must be checked by  a mechanic periodically, and  the club reserves the right to  ask the withdrawal of any  ��� member disobeying the rules  of the club or the road. The  next meeting will be held at  7:30 p.m.' Sept. 5 at the Thome,  of B. Morrison. Anyone wishing to join is invited, y  At a special meeting of the  Sechelt Board of Commissioners Aug 22 the estimate of the.  Peninsula Contractors was accepted for sanding the floors  and applying dmoleum;, t*lle."  This firm will also excavate  and crib the pit for installation of a floor furnace in the,  ,\ new Municipal . Hall. The estimate of C and S Sales regarding the installation of the  furnace Was accepted- by  the  '. Board; 7y7 ��� /, y ���/ ��� .::  A letter from the Sunshine  Coast Fall Fair Committee  suggested an invitation be extended on behalf of the Board  to a member of the S.C.F.F.  Committee to attend the reg-  xtoar kieeting in regard to  strong representation from  Sechelt in next year's fair.

Gargrave at  Port Mellon  Speaking at Port Mellon,  Tony Gargrave, CCF candidate for Mackenzie told his  pulp worker audience that  honesty was hot one of the  things this government could  crow about.  "Mr Bennett cannot explain  his failure to clean house in-  the face of allegations of bribery and patrondge in our forests resources and road construction'by repeating his favourite phrase "no comment"  Gargrave said. Tony Gargrave  refered to the Stewart-Gas-  siar-y road-"scandal and the  Stur'dy-Sommers ciase. :r    7  .. 'Surely"this government did  not -.believe they/ could stifle  debate on the' Sturdy-Som-  mers case and on mismanagement ��� of construction of the  Stewart-Cassiar, road by snap  elections and libel suits.'   '  " "    " -      . r- .   . '.  "For a while I thought Mr  Sommers was going to try and  put all the opposition^ candidates in jail. It would have,  ^ertainly cut". down' election  expenses," Gargrave said.  "Tlie decision of Justice  Wilson to free Dean Finlayson  vfr.om" contempt charges was  gratifying," Gargrave. said.  Social Credit certainly received an .oblique reprimand for  its attempt to provide free/  speech for itself meanwhile  muzzling the opposition and  the press with the. threat of  court action.  - Tony ' Gargrave- speaks /at  Powell.

Glen also saveS  a pop fly that bounced out oE  shortstop Ray Kruse's hands  by charging in from centre  field to catch the ball .before  it hit the ground.  The Cripples downfall waj>  their somewhat porous ihfieldr  even with 3 second basemen-  the ball would still.go through  into the outfield with t h'e  creaking of Kiwanis joints  drowning out the roar of the-  crowd.  The Cripples took a 6��  lead in the early innings and  then elected tb play to the  grandstands and got themselves behind and could never  regain the lead, even with the  help of the umpire.  The game was held up oftei*.  with   arguments   between   trie'7'  two   coaches,   Bill   Skeilett  of  the  Mops  and Harry Reichel^  of  the   Cripples.

V    -- ��    iMi-Lt&s^  -.iaHB'"iHr" ���""-'  An editor of a weekly newspaer is supposed to take a  ifeQnite stand regarding the candidates in his riding at some  ^Mint in an election campaign. :  Having met all three candidates now in the running for  JSkcfcenzie riding, Tony Gargrave, the MLA in the last legis-  "Satnre; Jules Mainil, the Liberal candidate and Robert J. 'Muir,  Se Social Credit candidate, the editor is still at a loss what  :��&��� say. .  He likes all three of them. Each one has his particular  2&arm, Mr. Gargrave, youthfulness; Mr. Mainil direct approach  3��a. Mr. Muir, dignity. It seems a pity that two of them will  '3?we to go down to defeat because one only will 'be elected.  Analyzing the vote of the last election When Mr. Gargrave  tstoiv would not be fair in this election when in the opinion of  ?&e editor -the situation is hot the same. The Social Credit  ^s^ernment of Mr. Bennett has during its period of office ac-  mnred some unpleasant shadows. Whether these shadows are  seat or otherwise Mr. Bennett has not revealed and what the  general public thinks of them will be revealed election day.  Perhaps at this point an interesting paragraph from an ar-  ���SfeJe entitled "After the Elections" (Quebec) by Abbe Gerard  jE&sbss of Laval University department ofi social sciences, Quebec  UTgy and Abbe Louis O'Neill chaplain of the faculties of science,  -jsammerce and forestry, would make interesting reading for  s532Qdidates and voters as well.  . IShis paragraph comes towards the end of a lengthy attack  tHB specific methods used in the last Quebec election and gener-  -asSy on the present trend of political campaigns. Here is the  SpBffagraph:  lo us the conclusion seems obvious. An electoral'period  -jsreela as the one just completed shows itself a terrible instrument  iaff demoralization and de-Christianization. What makes a Christ-  3m country is not primarily tlie number of chunches, the pious  sSs��ements of politicians'/the apparent temporal and political  asHaence of the Church, or "good relations" between the Church  ���sbskI State. It is primarily the respect for truth, (belief in just-  ���������'Ssb, integrity of conscience, and respect for freedom. Present  sSsctoral practices are a frontal attack on all these values. The  ���Sanger is even greater, in that much evidence shows that the  ��woscience of'the'^ith'M^d/eyen that of members of religlbiis  swdersi no longer fimfaca^etobe shocked &y such corruption.*  :sb  i  IMPORTANT NOTICE TO  AUTOMOBILE OWNERS  Effective    October   1st.    1956 a new.

He was bent nearly  double and walked along the  streets with hands behind his  back. He seemed to suffer  from curvature of the spine or  some kindred ailment. He was  a. great favorite with everybody but especially with  children. I have never known  a kinder and 'more unassuming person.  He had no ambition to be  thought of other than as.ya  humble Christian,, yet ; >by  sheer transparent goodness lie  became probably the best  loved man in a town of about  30,000 people. I left England  before he died but friends  told me his funeral was one  of the largest ever held  there. He was a member of  but children from all schools,  including the Roman* Catholic,  followed his body to its last  one of the Protestant churches  restjng-place in a local cemetery. He never held office in  any of the local organizations;  he was the humblest man- in  town.  He did teach Sunday School.  Sometimes sophisticated lads  would draw his attention to  passages in the bible that  seemed vulgar; He �� looked  pained but patient as he tried  to explain their place in Scripture but his sheer purity,;pf  life shamed, the youths and  increased their respect for,  him. ' :'AXA:-  I had at that time some office in a Band bf Hope Temperance Society. Several times  he came and spoke to the  children; modestly dressed but  completely carried away with  his subject. By some strange  law of the spiritual life, even  restless youngsters understood  he? spoke, as did his Master,  With authority, :':./w-  The word gentleman has  come to have a meaning suggesting social prestige.

' :���": ' ���-.i'dQ  keep himself in decent clothes  and maintain a frugal style  of living but if by gentleman  we mean kindness, culture, >  and good-will, he qualified  100 percent7 All kinds of  people sought his advice although he had very little formal schooling.  No man I have known made  me think so much of that  striking sentence St. Paul  used when writing to ' the  Corinthians: "Love seeketh  not her own". That was it;  he never would have said:  "l.'ll have my own, .7' he  did not insist even on his  rights. It wasn.'t what he did  or said, but what he was that  counted. He lived a selfless  life ��� he was that rarity; a  gentleman.  I have known qujte; a lot pf  men like him; obscure, humble but dependable. They  are the salt of the.earth although they would be the last  people in the world to think  it. but there tey are, like, the  foundation stones of a 'bridge,  unseen  but  necessary.  People like Tommy Her-  ron ��� whether they are men  or women ��� make me think  of Jesus. A lot of belligerent-  minded people try to make us  think that Jesus was assertive  and capable of anger. They  are constantly quoting that  incident when Jesus made- a  scourge and drove the money  changei's out of the temple.  From that they work out a  system in which Jesus was a  he-man as they term it; sub-'  ject to passionate v outbursts.  Not long ago a man who  heard- me ,-preach:���-on the  gentleness of Jesus ywrote rae  a pretty scornful letter in  which he said I made Jesus  out 'to be a "sissy". He went  on to say what he thought Jesus would say and do in certain emergencies. It was a  different Jesus than I had always believed in.  I have in my mind a picture  of Jesus. I think of him washing the disciples' feet and tel  ling them that the greatest  of all must be the servants of  alL I remember his words:  "Except a corn of wheat fell  into the ground and die it  abideth alone, but if it die it  bringeth forth much fruit."  I recall that with his dying  breath he said concerning  those who crucified Him:  "Father forgive them, for they  know not what -they do."  ��� Jesus was gentle, and forgiving, tolerant and selfless.  He wras quiet, patient and  strong with a sensitive regard  for the weaknesses and frailty  of others. Furthermore, I believe that those who live  closest to him will likewise  be gentle. A bombastic Christian is a contradiction ih  terms. Humility is the flag  ���cf/the lowly. 7-  .

BY TONY  GARGRAVE  MLA
Saturday I took the Canadian Pacific Airlones plane
to Williams Lake where t was
met by a Cariboo friend who
drove me to Bella Coola. for
a Labour Day celebration.
This whole country is poc-
turesque and also rugged. The
Williams Lake people thought
that the PGE "hangman'.' gag
was uproariously funny. You
will remem'ber that "bandits"
held up Mr. Bennett's PGE
ten million dolloar electioneering special two miles put:
side of Williams Lake, summarily tried and attempted to
hang both .Mr. Bennett and
Mr. Gunderson. The • funny
part was that at no time did
Mr. Bennett allow the noose
to settle firmy around his
neck, but he]d it gingerly up
around his ears ready to slip
off should the hangmen get
too enthusiastic.
The speed at. which this
election was called is still
t having repercussions. Thousands of Mackenzie voters have
been left off the list. Mackenzie needs a complete new enumeration. Many of the old
polls have only a dozen voters registered at them while
.some of the big logging camps
have no poll at all. It is a situation which will cost the
CCF hundreds of vote;,
- It is a little too ha
me to impartialy judge nc *
the election is coming along
but perhaps you might like to
add my observations to your
own.
In Mackenzie I anticipate
the Liberal vote to drop to
third place. In spite of the
fact that the Social Credit?
party tell us that we can not
get a square cieal from Victoria unless we elect a personal friend of the Premier it
is unlikely that they can get
the extra 1700 votes they need
to overtake the CCF..
Most people realize that if
Mr. Bennett had more than the
28 seats he now has he would
become unbearable and indeed
if we can trim him down a
little perhaps some democracy might seep into his mediocre cabinet.
For those who iare fed up
with, the lack of old-fashioned
honesty at Victoria arid for
those who can not stand the
old-fashioned conceit of some
of our governmental ministers I suggest you support thd
CCF on Sept. 19th.
Mackenzie has seen a lot of
things accomplished in the
last four years and the CCF
have earned the respect of all
groups for their work at Vic-
• toria.
I will be back in Powell
River next week". How about
coming down to Dwight Hall
on Monday , Sept. 10vat 8 p,m,
to hear Bob/ Strachan report
on his trip through the interior.
This space was purchased
by your donations to the Mackenzie CCF campaign fund.

I  .may be wrong, but the way I  see they came    out in    third  place.   This  proves   that    the  calibre i?f ball on the Peninsula is pretty good.  It is too bad that a sincere,  hardworking young ballplayer like Mickey Mantle has to  be a victim of the ballyhoo  that is feeing   printed in    the  EE_2SES3  HIBBBBttTO  TO ALL PENINSULA DAIRY CUSTOMERS:  Owing to the high cost of distribution, after Sept. 8,  Home Deliveries of Milk WILL BE DISCONTINUED:  We take this .opportunity to thank you, one and all,  for your past patronage.  It has been a great pleasure to serve you.  Peninsula Dairy,  Alf Garry  ���saraa sssesssss �����  sports pages and shrieked  through radio speakers, as he  makes his bid for baseball  immortality trying to better  Babe Ruths record of. 60 home  runs in one season.  / At this writing he has to  hit 13 home runs in 21 games,  not impossible, but quite "a  chore, especially as many of  the Yankees final games are  against first division clubs.  I imagine all baseball fans  are pulling for him, realizing  that what could be a brilliant  career in a great game may  .be cut short at any time due  to the bone disease in his leg.  ItMoes not seem possible,  yet, that he is a greater hitter  than . Ralph Kiner, Hank  Greenberg, Jimmy Foxx,  Johnny Mize and a number of  others, who have all ended  up in the 50 or more home  runs bracket.  Is it possible that if .the  Arnie Galiffa'less B.C. Lions  lose their next two games  that the Lions directors will  be eating Crowe?  At False-creek .ball park  Sept. |, Wilson Creek softball  team were pitted against the  top team -inVancouver, -the  Carling nine, which was favoured to win the tournament.  The Carlings hammered out  eight hits to score four runs  while the top sluggers of the  Peninsula representatives had  to content themselves with  two hits, which got them nowhere.  Condition played a major  part in the victory as Carlings  had to fight to1 the last few  hours, in order to make the  playoffs. Wilson Creek had  very few serious workouts in  the last five or six weeks.  The following day; Kit-  timat provided the opposition.  Their batters caught Kit-  timat pitchers for eight big  hits to score six    runs    while  the opposition scored five rims  on seven hits. The team from  the Peninsula gave their many  supporters something to get  , excited about in the type of  game that -would cram ballparks from Port Mellon to  Pender. v  Flush from this victory, the  locals journeyed to Memorial  Park, levelled against the  Carlings for the second time.  Carlings, like Wilson Creek  had one loss and one victory  and this was curtaihsy for  either team. It was the thriller  of the series so far with each  team getting five hits and  Wilson Creek eventually making the semi-finals by beating  out the Carlings six to five.  The fourth and final game  f for Wilson Creek was played  later the same day. This^ was  a young fresh team from the  Doukabour area of Grand  Forks, and they won 4-2 over  a team which was perhaps  too eager, errors happened,  both on plays and players who  were notedly sound in    their  10    Coast News, Sept, 6, 1956  positions, the big guns with  the hickory did not register  one single* hit during this  struggle for the final round.  Grand Forks were ushered into the finals against Prince  George. Wilson Creek and  their many supporters had, a  most exciting time.  Rudy. Crucil, with his two  homers, and Danny Kuwicki  in his last desperate attempt  to stave off defeat, when he  went in as- relief pitcher, were  the highlights. '  ARE SHOES COSTING  YOU TOO MUCH?
