Rain fell on 20 days during  the month and totalled 9.77 inches,; against a normal of 4.87  inches. Highest temperature  was 66.9 degrees on Oct. 7  while the coldest clay was Oct.  28 with 29.4 degrees. Mean  temperature was a chilly 47.7  degrees and cloud cover was  78% compared to a normal of  60%.  Big surprise for peninsula  residents was the heavy thunderstorm which rolled over the  coast before day break Oct. 18,  dropping nearly three quarters  of an inch of rain in less than  an hour. This, however, is not  unusual, for last October there  were two such thunderstorms,  with a wet October ��� and November.

The meeting was held recently in Elphinstone High  school. A.E. Ritchey was chair-  .man,  The. issue was brought out by  Mrs.    D.    Wortman,    retiring  school representative, who suggested that many good: individuals were debarred Tfrom service in, the community simply  because they have become involved   in a financial transaction through a . store or business which. ��� they  operate.  Robert Burns, village cleric, \vho  later nioved a resolution seekr  ing    modification   urged   that  there be sufficient safeguards  left in to keep controls; effective. The resolution asked that  legislation be modified to some  extent   yet   maintaining   safeguards, was passed unanimously and will be presented to the  B.C.  School Trustees  convention.  Mrs. A.E. Ritehey was nominated as school representative.  Lack of interest in the annual meeting was; noted by the  trustees as there were only 17:  present.

A school problem  ,., The problem of allowing people who do business with the school  board to serve as school trustees or school representatives, was  /discussed, at the Gibsons meeting of ratepayers to hear the annual .  .Seport from the school board.  It does appear somewhat anomalous that good men and women  should be barred from the school board because the board spent  ayfew. dollarsin merchandise with them during the year.      .  If the amount was large} it is generally agreed-that such a person should riot serve owing to the implications involved. In'areas  Sffitch as the Sechelt district it cramps! the. list Of eligibles.  A. resolution was passed at the annual meeting in Gibsonsi urging; Wat the matter be drawn,to the attention of the: School'Trus-  . tees^ Association convention for action on the basis that disqualification reasons should be modified. .      ���  When the. law was passed[today's: $250 was worth about $125.

And thrown in for good measure, or for laughs t the young  man who quit hisi job, because, it says right here, "he got married." ��� The Printed Word  Pink salmon conservation  Agreement has been reached  2>y Canadian and United States  delegates at a conference called to work out means for coordinating national and joint  conservation programs for pink  and sockeye salmon of common  concern in the Juan de Fuca  Eraser River area of the Pacific Coast. The conference agreed  that this objective might best  " ��JJe achieved by expanding the  authority of the International  Bacific Salmon Fisheries Commission, by amendment of the  Sockeye Salmon Convention of  3330, thus permitting the commission to investigate the pink  salmon stocks of the Fraser Ri-  -^er and regulate the fishery.  The commission's objective  would be to maintain the pink  salmon stocks at the level of  imaximum sustainable productivity and to ensure insofar as  practicable an equal division of  the catch of pinks by Canadian  and U.S. fishermen. The agree-  Snent provides that the commit  sion may begin regulation of  the fishery immediately after  entering into force.  The International Pacific Salmon Fisheries Commission  which was established in 1937  consists of three representar  lives each from Canada and the  United States.'. It has had responsibility for the investigation  axiii management of the sock-  <aye salmon in the Fraser River  system. Its work has been outstanding.  The agreement will provide  for division of the catch and *  ���will   increase  the  size  of  the  commission's advisory committee   by   adding   one   member  from each country in order to  give ibroader representation  from the industry.  The agreement also provides  for a co-ordinated investigation  by research agencies of the two  governments and the commission of pink salmon stocks  which enter tlie waters described in the - convention. It calls  for . a meeting, in the seventh  year after entry into force to  review the results of this investigation and to determine what  future arrangements concerning pink salmon might be desirable. The agreement has  been referred to the two governments for signature.  The conference also took note  of the serious threat which offshore net fishing poses to the  conservation of both pink and  sockeye salmon stocks and  adopted a resolution calling  this matter to the attention of  the governments and recommending immediate action on  their parts to solve the problem.  The conference opened under te chairmanship of George  R. Clark, deputy minister of  fisheries of Canada and head of  the Canadian delegation. Vice-  chairman was W.C. Herring-  ton of the department of state  Washington, D.C., who headed  the United States delegation.  Representatives of the governments of both countries, the  department of fisheries of the  state of Washington, and of fish-  ermenj fish processors and vessel owners from the state of  Washington and British Columbia took part in the discussions.  Editor: We have passed  through a really hectic week  or ten days. Undoubtedly many  millions Wefte like us listening  intently to the discussions taking place at the United Nations  headquarters. It would appear  to be quite a step forward from  the happenings at the League  of Nation's conventions.  These international gather-  igs are particularly interesting  to me, inasmuch as I attended  an International Labor Conference at Washington, D.C. during October and November,  1919. Delegates there represented the governments, employers and employees of ]the  Interallied Nations. 77  It's sure some step forward  when we find the delegates are  now able to listen to practically instantaneous translations of  the speeches being made in order that they can follow without the delay necessitated ���  for instance ��� in the 1919 conference, when we had to wait  for speeches to be interpreted  into a*few languages.  I was greatly impressed  with the varied styles of. the  different speakers. Some were  jmore blunt than decorous.  However, they were���the exceptions, to the rule. The discussions) were carried On in ia most  dignified manner. I learned  one thing during said discussions, the tendency to accept  - things pleasantly stated and tne  seeming unwillingness to Accept most convincing arguments when not so pleasantly  stated.  For  instance,   the   Lebaripn  delegate had such  a masterly  .style   of  presenting   his   ciase  that one found it hard to ques-r  . tion   anything   he  stated.   On  the other hand a spokesman for  one   of   the   Latin   American  countries had a style that Vwas  unappealing and he had sp6k-  fen at some length before I discovered the logic of things that  he was ���-. to me ��� somewhat  awkwardly   slating.   Tlie   fact  that that great delegation, was  together under one roof,  conscious of the almost unimaginable  consequences   of another  world   war,   demonstrated  it's  importance   to  themselves   as  well  as the millions listening^  Here   were   men   evidently  realizing that they had to. give  some  thought to things   other  than, "my   country   right   or  ���MaaMananaBHBMHMBaMa -  For Guaranteed .  Watch and Jewelry  Repairs  CHRIS'S! JEWELERS  Work   done   on   the   Premises  WE BUY OLD GOLD  Phone 96 Sechelt  wrong" if they were to avoid  war. Despite the extraordinary  vise made of the finer shades  t  of meaning, the things not stated but often implied etc, it was  noticeable how difficult it was  to get.delegates to talk let alone  vote in opposition to the old  past  entangling  allianues.  It is with some of these  thoughts in mind that -I find  myself giving the unqualified  praise that he deserves to Lester B: Pearson of Canada. Mentioning individuals it was really pleasing to hear the delegates  so lavish in their praise of the  Secretary General, Dag Ham-  tmarskjold for the way he so  speedily rose to the occasion  when he was asked to prepare  plana at very short notice.  We know that speakers use  tricks for their own aggrandizement, but to me it appeared that the praises were heartfelt. In any case they were well  'deserved. With all the small  trickery sometimes! resorted to  (by delegates, and a general  knowledge that such things are  done, complimenting the secretary had it's favorable reaction  on the general tone of the conference.  A Letter...  By Rhondda  Very little escaped the attention of the delegates, for after  all they were a pretty fair sample of the cream of the crop  as far as intelligence went.  Moreover, what the delegate  himself might overlook would  hardly escape' his advisors as  well as himself. So we can  rightfully feel that we have  been privileged to listen "to a  discussion unsurpassed in importance and in manner of presentation. .    .  How much effect.the fear of  the use of the hydrogen bomb  had upon the gathering is naturally problematical, but I am  convinced it was the biggest  factor of all. We should revel  ���in peace, particularly when we  note how quickly the brute tendency manifests itself when  mob psychology is arousedTarid  added to that the traditional  partnerships of alliesi, noticeable in marked degree in,the  past week's discussion.  It almost prompts a feeling  of thankfulness that this terrifying potentiality existed, and  should we pass this crisis without'more bloodshed, I feel it  not too much", to hope for the  control-and  ultimate elimina-  2   Coast News   Nov. 15, 1956  tion of hydrogen bombs*. With  automation at our door and. the  dream of war preparation, receding we can at least hope and  anticipate a somewhat brighter tomorrow.

He completely lost his W"ay, and in an  effort to reach home he wandered farther and farther into the  wilderness. Night overtook  him, and worn out with weariness he lay down under a tree...  to sleep.  In   the   morning   when   he  awoke he. beam^ aware   that  someone was looking at him,  and then he saw that he was  ^frotinded by a ibaiid: of hbs^  tile  Indians. Everyone' admits  now that the' Indians had reason, to  dislike and even hate  many of the early settlers, and  this man who had strayed'from  ��� his friends must have known  about that hatred. The chief of  the; band, arrayed in war paint  an^f eajhersy was ^bending over ,  hiniv with; hate depicted T in his  features.He .may have suffered much at the hands bf white  men, and here; was one in his  grasp.  .The Waking man, realized  hisi position; his sad plight may  have troubled his dreams. He  .has no. hope of protecting himself against so many, and besides he. did not know one, word  of their language. His situation  was indeed serious.  There was one, language he  did understand, the language of  good nature. He looked the savage Indian in the face and smiled ��� really beamed. Slowly the  fierceness left the Indian's face,  and he smiled, a little at first  then more. Then they all smiled; hatred gave way to good  will. The Indian chief took him  to his wigwam and in a few  days restored him to his  friends.  There are many contagious  diseases, but pleasant things  also can be caught and passed  on, and one of these is good nature. Bertha Adams Backus  put it this way:  Build for yourself a strong box,   .
