Editor: As president of the
Gibsons Branch, Canadian Red
Cross, I-wish to publicly thank
. the, ladies .who responded so
generously to our call for material and labor to assist the
Junior Red Cross in their work
for Hungarian Refugees. A
special 'thank you' to Mrs. E.N.

Mrs. J.A. Mainil
year ago last November and
a temporary bridge has been
in use since.
As the result of complaints
^resulting from the recent heavy
tains, the Commission will
check culverts to see what improvements can be made. The
commissioners spent some time
on this problem.
Discussing the supposed pollution of water it was decided to improve the filter system
to remove any possible material reaching taps. A report
from U.B.C. on an analysis of
the water showed whatever
was in the^ water was harmless. This analysis was done
through Dr.- H.F. Inglis as medical health officer after a personal survey of conditions.
Accounts passed for payment
were $262.05 for water, $177.52
forTroads^ $86.26 for fire department and $46.67 general
expenses, making a total of
$572.53.
A building permit was granted -Mrs. Biggs for construction
of a $4,000 one story dwelling.

The municipal scene on nomination day was just as it should  3sare been ��� quiet. There did not appear to be any issues which  ssald have split the electorate and caused an electoral fight.  As a result five men who have done good work for their  23spective municipal councils have been returned by acclama-  ���SSga. There were two at Sechelt, Alex D.. Lamb and Frank Par-  "Jfczr and in Gibsons, three, the chairman of the commission A.E.  3B����hey, also Fred Crowhurst and C.P. Ballentine. This saves  Bs��h villages the expense of an election.  Once again The Coast News can advise those people who  -SEzut election campaigns to be "whooped-up" to provide some  season why they should be and when there is something, to act  <3si8f determination. If such people are dissatisfied, they have  ,3 remedy ;-���the ballot.  Hungary's struggle  When in 1914 shots were fired in Sarajevo resulting in the  assassination of the Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand and  Sis consort, no one could have foretold the terrible results that  "Should follow, down to the present day.  Least of all would the average 1914 Hungarian, in spite of  Ssfee political turmoil the country was undergoing, have visual-  .   ised what the country's status would be in 1956, 42 years later.  Hungary came out from under a monarchy as the result of  g&e defeat of Kaiser Wilhelm and the resulting fall of the Haps-:  3ergs.  Since  then many names have crossed the Hungarian  scene' such as Karolyi, Jaszi, Tisza, Esterhazy, Bela Kun, Horthy,  XT&eki, Bethlen and Gombos along with others.  The man most damaging to Hungarian national life would  ���*Se Bela Kun, an agent from.the Soviet who did the usual in a  strife-torn country and seized power, starting a political pattern  ���which since has been, to say the leasti uneasy.  The addition of the Nazi burden in the years before and  during the Second World War aggravated the situation and re-.  salted in the taking over of the country by the Soviets.  :      Hungarian nationalism has run strong and in diverse direc-  fftons through the years, owing to language divisions and the in-  f^iable Balkan intrigues..It is understandable.that a serious ef-  jftjrtio burst the Russian chains should be made in Hungary and  1 f8L2ss-also clear why nationalistic fervor is keeping the revolt  s3Ive in spite of the vast Russian military machine.' .  In the uprising many thousands of Hungarians have fled  32d Ihe west to which they Ibok for help. It is up to the western  saporld to take them in. There is room for them and they should  Become absorbed wherever they land Some will remember the  great influx into Canada of Balkan country labor during the  sssriy years of this century.

I am usually good-natured and cheerful  but when anybody tells me to  'look pleasant*' I try so hard  that I either get a silly grin  or look as if I'd had a terrible  shock. 7    :>  " *     "���      *  .  *y .But to get back to the photo-,  graphs in my friend's house,  I found some of them amusing;  I wouldn?t have known tfiem if  their names "had* not been  there. Nice young fellows,  with lots of bushy hair and  now? they are as bald as the  kitchen floor. No doubt they  have tried all the hair restorers ^ in the ��� advertisements.  Then, so many that looked  both trim and slim and now  ��� oh,Nmy! they belong to the  brotherhood of enlarging waistlines. I am in that class myself;  I am sorry to relate.  On my last, visit to .England,  I preached in my old home  church. An old chum turned  up and said after the service:  "You gave us a great sermon,  Archer, but I didn't hear a  thing you said. I am as deaf  as ai doorpost."  TI won't say much about the:  girls, except that I certainly  wouldn't have recognized them  ��� that is in many cases. God  bless them; some have had a  hard time and show it. I-called  on a lady recently whom I had  not seen for 40 years. When I  knew her, her hair was black  as night. The other day when  she greeted me her hair was  as white as snow. "I know  what you are thinking," she  said. I had to admit there was  quite a change but she was as  nice as ever.  *     ��     *  Some of my college friends  have had a hard time and yet  they have stood up to it magnificently. In fact the thing  which astonishes me is the  way some people meet and  overcome trouble. Not long  ago a minister was telling me  about a woman in his congregation who has had a succes-  ' sion of troubles that jwould  crush the life out of most people. He said: "Iri spite of it all  .she is not only the most cheerful member of my congregation, but whenever anybody  is in trouble, she is the one  they go to: for Tsympathy." I  am sure that among my readers, there are many who have  known such brave people.       >  There is a widely-accepted  belief that sorrow inevitably  brings out the best in people  ��� that it always purifies and  strengthens them. I w.ould  like to believe this, but it is  not altogether true. There are  some, at least, who become  bitter and resentful.  . One tiling greatly surprised,  ^me,. as I. looked, at the fellqjy- T  students of 40 years ago, is  that some fellows, and girls  too, who never showed much  promise, have done worthwhile things. If I were a school  teacher I would be slow to pick  out the promising pupils as  the ones destined to go ahead  and do things. Some of my  chums at college, who were  even dumber than I was, have  turned out remarkably well.  One student I knew who had  a hard time getting a pass in  any subject, surprised me, and  everybody else, by becoming  favourably known throughout'  the whole of Canada. He wasj  head and shoulders above  those who took prizes and  were the centre of admiration  on graduation day.      ' 'V  '���,...*     *     *' '���' ���'"'.' '''���-.  I think I mentioned once before, a book, published in England a few year ago, entitled  "What Life Has Taught Me",  and consisting of 25 essays by  elderly men. Several of them  stated th&t if they could begin  life over again, with the knowledge they now have, they  would act differently. I am in- '  clined to doubt that. Anyway  you cannot put an;old head on  young shoulders.  One thiftg I will say ��� I do  believe that the. percentage of  good-natured, happy and cheer- T  ful people is greater than ever.

All   made,  cide who is to be r^bmmend-;  . ed.xA. standard for each: sub- /  ��� ject is set. Students may be recommended in one subject and  not in another. Recommenda-*  tion is - based - on' the.' year's  work of the student together  with his attitude to school and  his application during the year.  It should always be remembered that recommendation: is  a privelege and not a. right belonging to any pupil, and may  be withdrawn at any time up  to the time of writing the examination.  In the debate the chief arguments put forward in favor of  accreditation were: The reputation of the schoolis enhanced. The student goes ahead on  his work over the whole year.  He cannot get by by cramming  at the last minute. Since only  ��� the  higher group of students  ��� can be recommended, students  try to (work hard to gain recommendation. Students who  are recommended are out two  weeks earlier andifygbing to  University can get more work  and a better choice of summer  jobs.  Those opposed stressed: the  importance of learning to  write an examination as they  will have to do this at university. A higher standard will be  kept and scholarship students  must write anyway.  A question period followed  to clear, ua any points that  were not fully covered.  J Mr. Potter, the principal,  was moderator.
