As a result Chairman A.E.  ' Ritchey and Chairman Mrs.  Christine Johnston of Sechelt  will have to be nominated,  elected by acclamation, br by  a vote if an opponent appears.  New chairmen will be elected  for a two year period.  Under the old system it was  necessary only for the required number of members to be  elected- to fill vacant corrimis- \  sion seats and the elected  members would then select a  chairman from among themselves.  ��� __  Framers of the Municipal  act were of the opinion the  old system had' its drawbacks  and that throwing open to  public voting the chairmanship  of  the   municipal   body  would give the voters the  right- to choose their chairman instead of leaving it to  the members elected to;*, the  commission.  In '���'���Sechelt there will be  two to be elected to the village commission because Com-  misalioners Sam Dawte and  Bernel Gordon would be retiring. In Gibsons Commissioners Harold Wilson ahd Harry  Mylroie will  be retiring.  Under the new electoral  plan there could be an election for a chairman only if  the commissioners were elected by acclamation. So far  there have been no murmurs .  of any new faces in the running for village commissions!  at Sechelt or Gibsons..  Now that nomination and  election dates are fixed by  statute Gibsons and Sechelt  will have nominations on. Dec.  2 and elections if necessary  on Dec. 12.

Crump  of -the  C.P.R. in Montreal.  Here is a copy of the letter:  Dear Mr..Bennett:  A special meeting of the ex-  trict- Ratepayers: Association  ecutive pf the Gibsons and Dis-  was held Friday, Oct. 25, to discuss the increase in ferry rates  amounting to almost 100% on  trucks being ferried from  Horseshoe Isay across Howe  Soimd, by the Black Ball Ferry  and effective Dec. 1, 1957.  In this connection I was directed to write you on behalf  or the association protesting  against any individual or company having the authority to  increase transportation rates,  particularly to such an extent  of nearly double the present  rate.  *��� Further, it is understood that  the present private bill to the  Black Ball Ferry covering this  trip from Horseshoe Bay tp the  Sechelt Peninsula gives them  the authority to again increase  the rates up to 100% after  three months has elapsed from  any previous increase.  From your trip to Gibsons  and the.Peninsula as a whole,  you will realize that we are *in  a geographical position ^somewhat similar to Victoria and  Vancouver Island generally, i.e.  we have tb rely on trucking  for much of our food stuffs and  practically all other commodities. . , .  From this geographical parallel you must;realize the effect this increase in  trucking  . rates must have in prices on  food  and , Pther   commodities.  ICfdfS  k of appeal  Just supposing that some bright  morning you picked up your  Victoria paper and as a bolt  from the blue you read "Trans-'  portation charges have been increased nearly 100% on all  trucking between the mainland  and Victoria."  ' It is rather doubtful if there  is another transportation company in the whole Dominion of  Canada which has the authority to make increases in rates  vifhout the approval of a gov-  : erning'body -and- even if -there  is, this association strongly condemns such authorty being given any individual or company.  The Gibsons and District  Ratepayers Association respectfully petitions you as the premier of this great province to  take the- necessary action to  have such undemocratic authority made null and void.  Yours Truly,  Wes B. Hodgson,  President Gibsons and Dis-;  trict   Ratepayers   Associa-,  tion.  loo soon  A beautiful array of colors  lit the sky at Sechelt, when a  Roman candle or rocket exploded $60 worth of fireworks  garnered ��y the Kinsmen as a  treat for the kids on Hallowe'en '    ���  It happened a half hour before the time the show was to  start, and a few early birds  were the only ones who saw  them.  The disappointed Kinsmen  managed to get a few more fire  works ��� some from their- own  children ��� so the huge crowd  that had gathered at the appointed time was not completely disappointed.  A huge bonfire on the. beach  attracted many bystanders, as  there was a cold nip in the air.  Access to the movies was impossible, since the waterfront  road was crowded with goblins  ghosts, wii-ches, parents arid  cars.  The free dance at the Legion  Hall was a big success with  George Page and Jim Plumridge beating out on accordion  and bass fiddle. For rock 'n  roll numbers they played hit  parade records.  Services to  honor dead  Armistice Day or Remembrance Day as it is now known  will be remembered' in Sunshine Coast church services  Sunday.  Anglican church services  will be held in Gibsons at 11  a.m.; Sechelt, 11 a.m. and Roberts Creek 11 a.m. with Holy  Communion.  United church services will  be held in Gibsons at 11 a.m.  with the choir singing an in  memoriam anthem, Roberts  Creek at 2 p.m.; Wilson Creek  at 3.30 p.m. and Port Mellon  7^30 p.m. --*  Other churches at their various points along the Sunshine  Coast will also have their owe  Day of Remembrance service.  : CAR DAMAGED  Two local youths, 15; were  apprehended Nov. 5, by the Sechelt: RCMP, after a 1956 Meteor was stolen from Standard  Motors; The car was found  one-quarter mile south of  Halfmoon Lake, on the highway, by Constable J. Hodgson,  who estimated damage to the  car at between $800 and $1000.  Prepared by the Student  Council  High school students of Sechelt School District No. 46,  are planning a centennial year  bopk for June of 1958. Now  that 'we have started to work  .on it, we think perhaps our project is too ambitious for a  small high school, but so far  as we know, no other organization in the area is planning  anything of an historical nature for the centennial year.  We realize, now that we have  begun to try to collect pictures  and information, that much  early history has been lost to  xis with the death of some of  our old timers. Therefore, even  though we may have undertaken a project too big for us, we  believe it is up to us to do the  best we can with it and try to  preserve at least part of what  is left of our early history in  the Sechelt School District. We  have students and people looking for pictures- and information at Port Mellon, Roberts  Creek, Sechelt, Gibsons, Bowen Island, Pender Harbour,  Vancouver Bay and Nelson Island.  ..The plan of our book is something like this:        .  A. A dedication to all the  senior citizens with special reference to all citizens of the  "area over., 90 years of age. We  know of four and would be  glad to know of others as we  don't want to miss anyone.  1. Grandpa Farnham.  2. Prof. Henderson.  3. Mr. Bob Stevens.  .  4. Mr. Cook (of Sechelt)  B. A pictorial history of var  ious phases, of life in our district, for example: Logging ���  a picture of logging by ox-train  then with horses, the first-donkey engine in the area, and finally the latest piece of. giant  logging equipment here in action.  A similar pattern fqr the following ��� transportation, houses, schools, sports, costumes,  and any other phase of life for  which we can get pictures.  C. Write-ups of historical  episodes, early adventures, logging or fishing stories, and  songs. We are especially anxious to get the words of and  the story behind an early logging song called "A Piece of  Larry's Corpse."  D. And finally we want a  section on high school life here  in 1957-58 ��� class pictures,  teachers, school activities,  sports and extra-curricular activities.  This is as far as our plans  are to date. They are still a  little hazy because we are not  sure of what we can dig up. We  will welcome suggestions from  readers, and are hopeful that  citizens of the area will send  us pictures and historical  tales.  Because we realize that to  ask people to buy a book that  is not yet published is really  asking them to buy a "pig-in-a-  poke," we have added the feature of a free ticket on a drew  for a portable television set.  Every purchaser of a $3 book  will receive the free ticket on  the TV set. Students will canvass the settled areas of the district. However, in case youi  receive no call from a centennial book salesman, you may  order by mail. The advertisement on page 8 of this paper  gives you pertinent infosama-  tion and a coupon.

Louis   Olivier   Gamache,   a  squatter on the  lonely island  of Anticosti early in, the 19th  century, fostered the legend to  preserve   his    privacy.    It   is  thought that he lived by piracy  as well as hunting, fishing and  trapping.  He was born at L'ls-  let, Que., about 1784, and died  on a remote part of Anticosti  Island that now is known  as  Ellis Bay, where he had lived  in  well-armed   seclusion.    He  served in the Royal Navy as. a  boy and went into business at  Rimouski,   Que.    He   married  twice and had several children.  When  his  business failed,  he  left Rimouski to establish his  lonely retreat.  .i.    .t.    ..">  "I- -�����* T-  What was ihe secret of Grey  Owl?  One of the most noted fig-  . ures  among advocates of con-  . servation in Canada was Grey  Owl, known as an Indian who  did wonders, in  domesticating  the  beaver  and   working   for  numerous    conservation    projects as a gifted author and lec-  * turer.  His: secret was that, although he  had been received  as an Indian by George V and  was widely accepted as such,  he  was-really  George  Stans-  ield Belaney, born in England  in   1888,   without   any  Indian  blood whatsoever. He emigrated to Canada, became a trapper  guide   and forest ranger,   embraced the Indian way of life,  and  married   an Iriquois wo--  man.   Much of his wildlife re- '  search was done at Prince Albert National Park. He died in  1938.  *    *    *  Who was Paul Kane?  ' Paul Kane was an artist who  travelled, extensively with traders of the Hudson's Bay Company and produced many fine  paintings of Indian life in Canada. A large number of his Indian paintings are in the Royal  Ontario Museum, Toronto, and  in the National Gallery. His  famous book "Wanderings o*  an Artist Among the Indians  of North America" was pub- '  lished in England in 1859 and  a new edition was printed at  Toronto in 1925.

This visitor was  an old sea captain.  _ The two chatted about where they had been and Agamemnon Channel cropped up. Arthur's ears perked up and the  two exchanged pleasantries about that section until the. old sea  captain thought the channel ran into Howe Sound. But Arthur  Godfrey mildly argued it did not: However, what really mattered was that Arthur said' he knew because he had been in tlpt  country and asked the old captain if he had ever gone up Princess Louise Inlet. On hearing he had not Arthur advised liim  to do so "because it has the most beautiful scenery in the worlk"  He also described Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet as being most  beautiful, the finest scenery anywhere. .. ���  This spontaneous "praise coming from a man with a large  following in Canada and the United States will more than liklly  plant a seed in some minds and as a result we shall get some  visitors we do not expect. -f  ��� But and this is something which should be pointed .  out ���- how many will,say they heard about this country on Arthur Godfrey's show? Mighty few if any. Yet there are advertisers who complain, because ho one mentions they saw theirfad  ���J  in any publication, that advertising is useless. How many people  when they buy a coke, an auto, a TV or the food they jeat, say  they read the advertisement in any paper. t  We have a future  The Sunshine Coast is growing to ;the point where people  are paying more interested attention to its potentialities." Reason  for such a remark is the B.C. Telephones two-man team in the  area sizing up its telephone requirements for the next 20 years.  With such a move afoot it would appear the days.ofCthe  cow trails are now ih limbo of time and those living here must  expect a continual expansion.- '���.*'."��� 'v  There is one item on the schedule which will not trouble  the two-man team and that is the number of vacant premises.  Anything habitable these days is occupied. More yolaces are  needed'and morewill be heeded'urgently before long. ^  The exploration work of the two-man team will take -at  least two months before the results can be put on-paper for -future use. This move shows the Sunshine Coast >has a bright future. Some sayit is the. WestTVancouveJ of the future; What with  better transportation" facilities and the establishment of an airport all we need is heavy industry. This will mean more popula-  ion. Both will come. When, is the problem to be decided.  GOD KNOWS THE HUMBLE  We hear much about leadership and youngsters must get a  int-e weary of it.  We need leaders but we also need people  who are  content to  play second fiddle arid, without  them  l11c iiiuoic of liie* would be impossible.   It is ,a foolish thing  to  belittle   people   and  make  mem ieei they don't amount to  much.   I once heard a man say  about a great ; egotist  "If you  could take the conceit out * of  .   that man,  no one  could identify the remains."   The older I  get the more I admire humility duc: we tend to put prominent people on pedestals and under rate the humble.  ������������}��    ��r-  There is   an amusing  story  about Kermit Roosevelt, son of  the   late   President   Theodore  RoOi-e-veit. When Kermit was at  college and his father \vas in  the White House, the president  made a- si,atea^em which excited   controversy.    Because   the  President was a forthright, outspoken man, he was often in  txouole. Kermit's friends were  a^ouisoiiig uie axiair and Kermit defended his father. "Dad's  all right," said Kermit.   Then,  aner. a little reflection, he went  on.   "Tne trouble with.bad. is  '  that he's .got to  be either the  bride at tlie wedding  or the  corpse at the funeral."  That was it! The President  waj essentially a first-fiddle  man; he would have been unhappy in any other role. Other  people often criticize, aggressive persons for loving the  limelight, but. the plain truth *  is that they, have qualities required for leadership and the  voiid needs leaders. '  Late in life that giant in  heart and mind, Phillips  Erooks, said, "I would like to  have been captain of a great  ocean liner." That is not hard  to believe,>-He was a born leader of men, and it is difficult  to imagine,him in any other *  role. In most people there is a  desire to know the direction in  which one is going and, if possible, what the outcome of life's  experiences will be. They like  to stand upon the captain's  bridge.  *"'   *    * ���  _ On the other hand, it is certain that much of the world's  best work is done byy people  Who are second fiddles aind live  their lives filling -humble* and'���*-  obscure roles. The great Shakespearian actor Sir Henry Irv- <  ing attributed much of his sur-  cess t0 the fact that he insisted  on small parte being well play,  ed. He said, "lean get anybody  to play good parts, but it is  extremely difficult to get an actor willing to play small parts  **��Wwvc��ewK#:  /   w        /    ***+  oth have a  ��� t  bank account-and  savm  <*    Plans really start to take shape when savings  start to grow. One way tp make sure you'll  have money when.you n6ed it is to make  regular deposits in.your bahkiaccduht.    v  - At first it may not be easy to stick faithfully  to your savings program. But as your dollars .  build up you'll find yourself facing the future  with greater confidence, making plans with hew.  assurance that you'll be able to carry them out.,  Use a chartered bank to-keep your savings safe  ..   and growing. You will always he glad you did.  Save at a bank ��� millions dot  ahd put his bes.tTihto doing it."  The Australian essayist Dr.  Frank Boreham points out that  the two great British: statesmen  of the last century, Gladstone  and Disraeli, belonged to the  same political party in the beginning but that, because they  were both first-fiddle men,  they separated and went, to different camps. Each man was  so strong-willed that he got on  the other's nerves. That may or  may/not be the best explanation of their long animosity,  but it sounds reasonable.   ���  Many people who are second fiddles thoroughly enjoy  the role. Boswell tagged around  after Dr. Samuel Johnson and  loved it. Someone has said that  whenever you see a gentle  meek man married to a strong  minded, * domineering woman  he is tremendously proud of  her and that while others may  be sorry for him he does not  pity  himself.    He   knows  his  place and keeps it;  Dr. Boreham once preach  a series of sermons on secoi  fiddles, and he must have h  endless material, 'both in t  Bible and out of it.. For-ihstan  when writing to the Pliillipia  a group of people he had on  known well, Paul asks to  remembered to some whom :  mentions, by name. Then :  appears to have forgotten t  names bf others, and tactful  writes, "My fellow labpure:  whose names are in the bo<  ot life." It is as much as to s:  "I cannot.recall their: nam*  but God knows, for their nam  are in His Book.." y  I believe that the second fi  dies; are the happiest Tpeop:  Those who are in the Jimelig  pay a heavy' penalty for the  prominence;' their Trespbnsib  ities get them down.

In a bluntly worded annual,  report, University of- B.C.  President, Dr. N.A.M. Mac-  'Kenzie said UBC cannot continue ih its present state if it  is to be a university worthy of  this province.  More money,! is needed to  serve present- students as they  deserve, writes Dr. MacKenzie.  "To expand so that we may  serve their younger brothers  and sisters, we need very much  more money.' The only alternative is a curtailment of our  activities," Dr. MacKenzie' adds  UBC will probably reach a  total of 12,000 students by .the  "early 1960's -says the report.  "The temporary measures we  toolf to teach the vast influx  of veterans* after the war will  not serve us again," Dr. MacKenzie'writes.  The army huts used as classrooms, the overworking of valuable staff,, the slowing down  of research and the overcrowding of laboratories were temporary expedients which 'Cannot be permanent, he writes.  So much money is needed  that it cannot all come from  one source, says the report.  "Governments, municipal, provincial arid federal; business  and industry and the public  generally will all have to contribute generously if universities are to meet the demands  that the age of automation and  nuclear energy is making on  them." :  In his report,   covering the  past year, Dr. MacKenzie discusses the suggestion that enrolment at UBC should be limited to the. very best students.  ,Dr. MacKenzie labels the pro-  . posal a "daydream" and adds,  "The time has passed when we  ,  could organize our educational  *.'.'. system for the few.  . T  University   entrance  regula-  .  tions should not be altered, Dr.  .   MacKenzie isays, "biit I do insist that we have a duty.to provide  facilities  for  those who  meet   the   existing   standards.  And in the next ten years we  may expect twice a�� many to  . meet those requirements as do  how."  Commenting on the expansion of Canada in general and  B.C. in particular, Dr. MacKenzie says we shall stop our own  expansion if lecturers, buildings, laboratories and residences are not provided.  We may also expect demands ;  from underdeveloped areas he  says and if aid in the form of '  trained manpower is not forth-  coining we may find that we  have lost valuable friends to  Russia.  A more difficult problem,  ��� the president writes, iry the  shortage of staff in the face  of expansion by other North  American universities and the  demands of government and  industry.  Another "vitalneed" referred to in Dr. MacKenzie's report is a national system of  scholarships, bursaries and  loans.  Almost one-third of first ���  year students are responsible  for all their expenses at UBC  and nearly one-half of students  in their senior year are supporting themselves entirely, .  the report discloses.    .  Dr. MacKenzie adds: "Our  tradition that students work in  the summer is a good one, but  we must not allow the desirable principle of self-help blind  us to the very real need for  greater means of aiding students than we now have.'-'  WEEKEND VISIT  Mr. and Mrs. Art Wickman,  North Vancouver, formerly of  Roberts Creek, visited with Mr.  and Mrs. Harry Batehelor of  Selma Park over the weekend.

PHONE No.  The following story appeared  in last week's 'Powell River  News ^.under the he a din g  "Trucking lines will -also hike '  rates" and is re-published in  the Coast News for the information it contains:  Present truck rates and allied fares charged by Black  Ball Ferries Ltd: will be almost doubled on December 1..  The rate charges do not apply  to passenger cars or their occupants.  Trucking lines have filed notice of intention to raise "their  own rates "to meet a 95% ferry rate increase"; the new  truck freight rates will be effective Dec. 1 also and will  represent about a 33 % in minimum rates, and a 10% raise  on general freight over present,  truck rates.  One trucking line told the  News that' where Jt cost him  $22 for a one way trip frorii  Rebekahs  hold bazaar  Sat. Nov. 2, the Arbutus. Rebekah Tea and bazaar was enjoyed by a great number of  people and, while at no time  was the selling very brisk, still  the results were gratifying.  The post office with Mrs.  W. Keen as postmistress was  soon sold out. The gift shop  was quite an attraction with  Mrs; M. Huhtala. Mrs. A. Osborne and Mrs. H. Chamberlin  in charge. Mrs. S. Reese and  Mrs. E. Hutchins were at the  plant stall.  The beautiful fancy work and  sewing was displayed/ and sold  by Mrs. A. Spencer and Mrs.  M. Coleopy. Mrs. V. Winegarden was in charge of fish pond  and candy bar, and Mrs. A.  Swanson had a table of lovely  dolls' clothes. Mrs. V/ Burt  was in charge of the draw. All  the tickets not having been  turned in, the draw will take  "place at a later dat�� andan-  nouriced in,the Coast News.  -  Mrs. M. Livingstone provid- '  ed transportation from the post  office, Mrs. M. Christenson was  at the door, while Mrs. E; Begg  and Mrs. T. Louden welcomed,  the   guests.   The greatest   at-Z  traction   was  the Hea,   which  was beautifully served. The kit-4  chen  was   convened  by   Mrs.  Sergant, ��� Mrs. Carruthers and .  Mrs. Grey. The Theta Rho girls  served the guests, and they al-,  so. had a table of various articles in the bazaar.  Vancouver to Powell River, the  jiew rate for his large van  would be $40.one way.      ���  Black Ball, argues ih support  of its price jump that truckers  take up three tiihes as much  space as passenger vehicles,  arid in view of that the present  rates are proportionately put  of line.  Protest against the truckers  proposed rate increase may be  filed with the Motor Carrie*  Branch of the Public Utilities'  Commission in Van c b u v e r;  there is no public protest  through official channels allowed against any rate changes  by Black Ball Ferries, which  have a long-term (25-year) agreement with the provincial  government protecting them  against competition and allowing rate increases of up to  100% without challenge. The  ferry company is answerable  only to the provincial cabinet.  No changes are contemplated in the rates charged by  Black Ball on its Horseshoe  Bay-Nariaimo run. On this run  it operates in competition with  Canadian   Pacific   Steamships  Vice-president I.D. Birse of  Black Bajl told the News that  the Nanaimo run operated on  ration that truck rates be  threerto-one compared to* passenger vehicles, rates. "This is  considered normal in the ferry  business," he said, "and raising  of the Howe Sound-Jervis In  let rates as proposed will simply be putting them in "line  with Nanaimo rates." ��� ���  Asked why the. three-to-one  rate had not beeri instituted  when the original tariffs were  set up six years ago, Mr. Birse  said, "It was an entirely new  operation for us and we had  nothing to go on."  /'The truckers have now had  a chance to get started in business at the low rates and it  seems only fair they should  now be prepared to pay their  proper share of transportation  costs.".  Operating charges have increased, he went on, and at  present negotiations with ern-  ployees are underway which  forecast a possible 50% hike  in operating costs for shipbome  employees.: T T  Is this commercial increase  a prelude to increased private  ^vehicle fares?  T Mr. Birse said there was  "definitely no idea" of iri-  creasirig passenger car or occupants' rates.  Referring to present truck  rates, he classed them as. "ridiculous." V  "A trucker,' ori ^communica-.  tion rates, at present pays $4.32  for an average truck, some pay  as low as $3<40r for truck and  driver.   A passenger car pays  8   Coast News, Nov. 7, 1957.  $7.80 for a smaller space. The  comparison is ridiculous 'under  present rates, i The truckers  .have simply not been cartyiag  their share of the cost of service."- '���' .���'Xy:'y-xyXxr.  ���'��� Peninsula residents .have no  alternative, shipping' Trorites  other than over Black TBall  lines. Powell River arefa has  b ar-ge transportation, for  freight, which at present* rates  is about :Onerhalf the cost of  shipping by truck lines.:  Last week Blaick Ball presented its /Tpropfosed: rate? fjo  truckers and carriers at; a luncheon fneeting. "They wined us  and dined us and then hit lis  over the head," said one trucking firm executive.   :       T   y  Gibsons  United Church KaS8  8  hi  I  I  ��  I  i  i  i  m  1  I  I  I  I  I  We have ^  from which yjbu can  choose the card of your  heart's desire.
