It has been my experience  that to listen to a talk on the  function's or operation of some  department or organization  could prove to be quite boring.  "Now, I am going to talk  on this subject, but I do not  intend to dwell on the actual  work or rolitine, instead I  thought it might be more interesting to skim through the  Bureau work, then talk about  the tourist business in general.  Perhaps later on you may  want to ask questions.  "You may all recall about a  year "ago a new Government  Department of Recreation and  Conservation was set up. This  department is composed of the  Government Travel Bureau,  The Parks Branch' and The  Fish, and Game Branch, the  idea being to bring under one  Ministry the - three separate  branches which are Concerned  with tourism.

Responding to a request  from Gibsons Village Commission, Vince Prewer, owner of  the building erected at the Sechelt-bound bus stop stated by  letter at Tuesday night's village commission meeting he  still hoped to be able to rent .  a portion of the building as a  bus depot. Commissioner Mylroie at' the last meeting maintained the reason for allowing  the building permit to go  through was that the building  would be used as a bus and express depot.      ..-''  A suggestion that the village  if paid $750 would, put the  school road back to its original condition following the laying of a sewer for the school  board was accepted by the contracting firm of Van's Contracting Company, Ltd. This means  the work will be done by local  workmen.  Accounts totalling $629.33  were ordered paid, $379.03 for  the water department and  $250.30 for roads.  A building permit for * a  $16,300, five room, one storey  home was issued to W.S. Potter  of Gibsons. Contractor will be  Vince Bracewell, Hopkins  Landing. .  The commission"passed a motion that if Mrs.' R. Telford is  prepared to follow a plan for  extension of the sidewalk to  the entrance of the post office,  the commission would be prepared to pay 25 percent of the  cost.  A bylaw covering the purchase of property for garbage  disposal, situated on the ;North  Road, was given third reading  and prepared for sending to  Victoria for official   approval.  survey  on  ph  Speechmaking  f  First it was Toastmasters  and now it is Toastmistresses  on the Sunshine Coast. Toast  masters-are those people who  can get up and speak without  too much preparation and carry their listeners along with  them. Toastmistresses who are  also planning an organization  intend to do the same thing.  Men and women of all walks  of life can join and"the chief  objective of the organization  is to make the individual more  valuable to his or her community by giving them confidence  to face an audience and be  clearly understood.  Toastmaoters are seeking  more members. The Toastmistresses club is being organized.  The male side can contact H  Mviroip. Gib?ons, Vince Brace-  well, Hopkins, and R. Wilson,  at Port Mellon.  The ladies can phone Mrs.  Grace MacDonald at Port Mellon IA.  The rnonthly meeting of Gibsons Landing Elementary  .School PTA, Monday, Oct. 21,  in Gibson�� Landing Elementary School, with Mrs. Spencer,  vice-president, in the chair,  urged all parents to attend the  Ratepayers' Association meeting on Nov. 5 in the School  Hall. This is an opportunity  to find out how school administration works..  Miss Linton's class, Gr. 1 and  2, was the honor class with 50  % of the parents attending.  Mrs. Weinhandl, Mrs. Skel-  ett, Mrs. Inglis and Mr. Child  were appointed to the Parent-  Teachers Council.  Mr. Jeffreys, the- school inspector, gave an informative  talk on education. He stressed  the value of parent teacher  conferences as an additional  device to the report.  He also said that the building up of the 3 R's must be associated with the development  of the child as a whole. A child  should learn to work hard in  school and also learn* to develop qualities of good citizenship.  There is a greater range of  mental age than chronological  age in the average classroom.  Mr. Jeffrey also stated that  enrichment should precede acceleration. A special program  is needed for the bright child.  The use of the Public Library should be encouraged as all  children need additional read-  Jalopy club  plans dance  Sechelt Jalopy club members have a meeting and a  dance coming up. The meeting  will be held at 8 o'clock, Friday evening at the home of  Ted Chambers in Sechelt.  The dance will take place on  the Saturday night in Roberts  Creek Hall with the Mellon-  aires orchestra providing the  music. Dancing will cr/.mence  at 10 p.m. and members of the  club are working hard to make  this, their first dance, a success.  Club members are looking  forward to building up a reserve fund for use in next  year's racing at West Sechelt.  A comprehensive survey ��� of  the Sechelt 'Peninsula to determine telephone reqiiirements  ior. the next 20 years is being  made by a two-man field team  from B.C. Telephone Company.  Hans Hoppenrath and Gilbert Saunier, of the company's  Vancouver commercial engineering staff, wail spend about  two weeks in the areas.  Company officials report  that all information gathered  through interviews with community leaders and some businessmen and contractors is  kept "strictly confidential."  Accurate data to be collected  includes: present number of  families, firms and institutions,  number of vacant premises,  amount of land available for  residential development, extent of new construction, and  other pertinent facts on characteristics of-the areas.  A least two months is required to sift and analyze the  data  collected.  The final "commercial survey" report, which contains  maps and graphs depicting the  trend in area and population  growth, enables f engineers to  formulate expansion plans to  meet future service demands.

A  wonderful selection of Picture  books for the pre-schoolers and  story books for every age from  6 -16 are available  as well.  Mrs. R. McKibbin and Mrs.  C.A. Chamberlin welcomed the  youngsters at the first story  hour and expect more this Saturday morning.  Dance school  'Pender Harbour School for  Dancing will be opened at Madeira Park by Mr. and Mrs. E.  Lowe. Highland, ballet, character and ballroom dancing  will be featured.  Mrs. Lowe was in show business four years in New York  and Mr. Lowe has won various  cups in Eastern Canada for  ballroom dancing.

There will be a film on the  1956 National Air Show in Oklahoma. This interesting air  picture is called "Air Power."  Another picture will be an air  safety film, "To Save A Life,"  The   speaker  will   be   John  MacDonald, of the Air Services'  branch of th9 Department  of  Transport.   The  public   is   invited to attend.  If a pharmacist were to stock  all possible types of drugs, he  would have more than 9,000  drug items. on his shelves.  TWO PRIZES  Bingo, Ognib or whatever  you want to call it still rolls  on and' this Thursday night is  ho exception. At the School  Hall starting at 8 o'clock there  will be keen competition for  the $50 four-corner event as  well as the door prize. Sputnik, the Russian satellite roaming outer space, has  created quite a furore in certain circles but as far as the Sunshine Coast is concerned, Sputnik has to take its place along with  the weather, the truck rates on ferries, the new bus and terry  schedules starting Nov. 1.  Life is going on much about the same here, we can report to the powers that be ��� or may be ��� in the Kremlin. We  have no Sputnk and no political crisis, beyond having Mr. Bennett in command, which could be considered a crisis m some  quarters. - ,'���,���'���*���-������  As a result of the Russians having launched Sputnik we  may have lost a political battle but this does. not. mean ^ have  lost a war > Credit ehouid be given the Russians for their achieve-.  ment. There is a great deal of talk about the pozsible effects of  Sputnik and much of it is premature, too premature. There is  still a great deal to be found out about the outer space m the  same way considerable had to be learned about the sea when the  first craft was launched. ,  It could be that in some remote part of the world there  is a man or woman ,an insignificant person, who.might come up  with something which could be .stagg ring in,its simplicity and  really start future Sputniks on a career which would make the  Russian achievement sound like small talk.  Therefore we should not be jumping to too many conclusions about outer space and possible travel, j-ust yet. Many hurdles have to be passed before that step can be taken. So tonight,  sleep easily. Sputnik's effect on the Sunshine Coast is one of  considerable interest. We shall await future developments with  the same'interest.  Not by bread alone  Man cannot live by bread alone. Recreation is becoming  more and more important as the speed, the tension and the complexities of life increase. Instinct tells man he must periodically  turn from his self-made' canyons to the peace of the forest.  Each summer our highways are crowded with countless  thousands of people who have found that the outdoors is a real  medicine that the intangible things of our land are more enjoyable and more lasting than material things'.  Man knows that bread is necessary and important. He. is  coming to realize that lightness of heart and the open road are  also imperative to his welfare. ���>������  The hob of conservationists jin its broadest sense, is not  only to protect wildlife but to protect and guard the whole outdoors. Wilderness areas have as great a value. of power dams;  waterfalls in many instances, are of the greatest benefit to man  when left in their natural state, unexploited for hydro or any  other purpose.  What price a pushbutton civilization in which a nation is  operated on a myriad of gadgets if its people are sick in mind  and body? What price automation if the outdoors is over-exploited  and much of the beauty of our land destroyed? ��� Bill Myring  SPEED LIMIT  Editor: I do net usually writs  letters tb newspapers but I am  moved to write in reply to Mr.  Ballentin's suggestion- regai cling tha speed limit on the Highway, pa.Si.ng Gran-uaams Landing,  and Soames Point.  If ha stops-to watch he-will  find 20 miles is quite fast enough  in this stretch of Highway for  several reasons. .There is quite  a number of little children playing on this road and also, a number of very old people "that have  to use this road daily walking to*  and fro to get their mail and supplies at Granthams P.- O.  There has been several accidents on this road even at 20  miles per hour. What will it bei  if we speed it up. If the North  road is open 3d up for ferry traffic I don't think Mr. Ballentine  need worry about tourist going:  through Gibsons. There is another reason I would like to  point out, alohg this road there  are several property owners that  have steep driveways entering  the Highway which makes a very  hazardous* condition.  J. W. Edwards,  Soamens Point  HERD LAW .        '       ,   ���  Editor: Why does the Village  not pasts a bylaw to stop stock  from running at large in the  village. The stock are always  breaking down fences. Is it  that the citizens want the droppings to use as fertilizer for  their gardens?  P.a:s.  Editor's' note: Tc^ pass the  above type-of-bylaw requires  the setting up of a pound which  is considered an unwarranted  expense at this time.  Forestry course for youths  A course in forestry will be  offered for the first time at the  14th annual Youth Training  School at UBC from Jan; 6 to  March 1 next year.  The. Eight week course is for  rural young people between  the ages of 16 and 30.

Young fishermen will be  able to study such subjects  as navigation, oceanography  fishing gear and the handling  of fish.  There will be courses in sew  ing, personal grooming, home  nursing and first aid for girls  attending and in combined  boys and girls courses such  subjects as crafts, party planning and photography -are offered.  : -iCost of the course fis $35;  which includes room and  board. Students pay the first  $10 of their return fare to  Vancouver, the balance being  subsidized by YTS.

TRUCK RATES <  Editor: When dealing with  the dictum of the Black Ball ���  Perry Co, that the rates for  all trucks using their ferries  will be raised-by 93 percent on  Dec. 1, we have more than an  assumption to go on in regard  to the necessity for such a fantastic increase.  ^ ..We have the statement from  Mr. Paulin himself, the president of the Black Ball Co.  when the ferry service started  that they intended to set their  rates at a high figure, which  - could be reduced when such a  ��� course seemed warranted.  We are well aware as to how  high the rates were set at that  time but we never did.hear of  any reduction.  Then we have the; next,acknowledged statement from Mr.  Paulin, that the ferry .service  has. been on a paying basis!  from the first day it started.  Since then it has become  clearly evident that >the business of the ferries has beconie  so overwhelmingly large that  the company/seems unable to  cope with it. '     ���  If the Black Ball Ferry Co.  succeed in forcing through this  huge increase in truck rates,  ��� and who can stop them ���-  the residents of this Peninsula  are going to be faced with a  * steep increase in their cost of  living, which, with s0 many  pensioners amongst us, is' going to be felt very.keenly.  All this iQOuld have been  avoided if our provincial gov  ernment had been interested  in protecting us from this  transportation monopoly, with  which we are shackled.  The Black Ball Ferry charte'r  was before the legislature, for  revision, at the last session and  if our government, then, had  insisted on the BlackTBall Com  pany being placed under the  Public Utilities Act, we would  then have been able' to appeal  to them for relief frOm any  harsh impositions from this arrogant monopoly.  It is very easy for the Black  Ball Ferry Co. to prove their  need for this startling increase  in truck rates. Let tnem submit their company to the provisions of the Public Utilities  Act, as a '.voluntary measure,  then the people, of this district  might have some reason to believe in the good faith of the  company.  But in doing so the company  would have to submit its financial affairs to the scrutiny of  the Public Utilities Commission  I suppose Mr. Gunderson,  that good friend of our premier  Mr. Bennett being on the board  of directors of the Black Ball  Perry Co. is lending his influence, and support, to this large  increase in truck rates.  C.S. Cassidy. ;  What Canadian became prime  minister of  Great  Britain?  The only prime minister of  Great Britain born outside the  British Isles was Andrew Bo-  nar. Law. A native of Rexton,  N.B., he held office in 1922  and 1923. He spent most of"  his youth in Scotland, where  he prospered in the family business. He entered politics as a  Conservative and held several  important posts during his 23-  year political career. He be*-  came prime minister in 1922  and won the subsequent election but ill health forced his retirement the following year.  Who  was ih�� first  wheat farmer on ihe Canadian prairies?  The .first man to grow wheat  on the Canadian prairie is  thought to have been Louis  Francoise, Chevalier de La  Corne, who sowed several  acres of wheat in 1754 in the  valley of the Carrot River, a  tributary of the Saskatchewan  He had a successful career in  the French army as commandant of the western posts and  w3i3 responsible for the construction of Fort St. Louis on  the Saskatchewan River. He  drowned at sea while en route  to France.  Who was Simon McTavish?

Coast News, Oct. 31, 1957.    3  LOVE ME  Some while ago, the comedian, Eddie Cantor, told this  story on television. Last year  he visited sqjne orphan child  ren in Palestine. He presented them with chocolate bars  and other gifts to make them  happy. He noticed one little  girl, cff by herself, and utterly  lonely. Mr. Cantor approached  her and said: "My child, is  there  anything I   can  do   for  you?" She looked atllim *n ^er  misery and replied "Love me."  The comedian said: "I don't  thihk I have ever been so deeply touched." ,  There must be millions of  people ��� not only children  but also adults ��� whose deepest needs are not only physical  ��� but heart hunjger; who  might   say   with   that   child:  "Love me." The suffering and  frustration of the Hungarian  people has high-lighted : the  need for practical sympathy,  but there is probably no community on earth where love "is  -not heeded, perhaps more than  any other quality.  Several' years ago, &e late  Bill Tamblyn asked me to ad-,  dress a group of youngsters in  his- school for backward children in Toronto. He told me of  one big 17 year old lad whose  mental trouble made others  aware of it and indulge in" persecution. Ohe day this lad's  teacher discovered that he possessed unusual skill in making  things ���- with some wood,, a  hammer and saw and a few  nails, his skill was astonishing.  He made something for Mr..  Tamblyn's room and the principal sent .for him.  He said to  -the lad: "You are wonderfully  gifted, Leslie and I am proud  of you ��� all the teachers:are  proud of you."  Hie boy was. seldom talked ,  to like that.   He rushed away  in tears-and said: "Everybody  picks   on   me- and   calls   me  . 'Charlie, the.Tduibi' That's all;  1 am ��� just a dub ��� I often"  wonder why I was born. There  is no one to love me." Mr. Tamblyn was a great lover of young'  people but. the incident deeply  moved him.      ���  PENDER  'BY JUDITH FLETCHER  Mr.: and Mrs. Fred Claydon  returned home after a three  weeks holiday,  Mrs. Mary Woodburn was a  recent visitor to Vancouver.  Gordon Lyohs is on a short  trip to Vancouver.  Mrs. ��>ixie Daly, formerly of  Garden Bay but now of Williams Lake, renewed acquaintances in the Harbour over the  weekend.  Mrs. Norman Klein is confined to hospital with an injured back.    . :  Mrs. Fraser Duncan and family of Pender Harbour have  moved to Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Albert Martin  of Garden Bay have as their  guest, Miss 'Penny Poole, a recent arrival from ^ngland.

"tal-  fireman has finished in Brit-  low pot", or steam locomotive  ���ish Columbia., Ending an era  which began With the confederation of the nro'yinces of the  Dominion of Canada, the last  steam locomotive on the Canadian Pacific's British Columbia district left Vancouver  with her stack covered, her tie-  rods stripped, headed for Calgary and the acetylene torch.  The C.P.R.'s British Columbia  district is now completely die-  felized ��� the first in the company's system.  In spite of all the bitterness  in the .world, I do believe there  is more concern over people's  lonliness than ever before. Not  long ago defective children  were severely dealt with, even  persecuted; that condition has  passed. Legislation has done  much but there is a great deaj.  more to do and it is our duty  to clear away misunderstanding and hatred. The unfortunate ��� whether children or adults ��� are a challenge to our  sympathies and intelligent understanding.  The late Frank Crane said:  "It takes so little to make people happy; just a touch if we  know how to  give it;   just   a  word fitly spoken; just a knack  .of readjusting things and lone-  TJy and disheartened people ^re  given a new lease of life."  Stafford Brook wrote:  A little sun, a little rain  A soft wind blowing from the  ...     West  " And  woods   and fields   are  sweet again  And  warm within the mountains breast.  . A little love, a little trust,  A soft impulse, a sudden dream  And   life,  as  dry as . desert  dust' .  Is   fairer    than    a   mountain  stream.

PHONE PENDER HARBOUR 251  Gibsons Theatre has adopted  a new policy which will be  similar to that used by theatres  in Vancouver, Vince Prewer,  manager, announces.  Instead of printing monthly  schedules, which results in a  biock booking for the month,  weekly advertising in the Coast  News will inform the public  of the. pictures available for  the next couple of weeks. By  so doing, Mr. Prewer says, he  can obtain pictures he would  not otherwise be able to get.  First result of this policy is  to be able to show the much  talked about Marilyn Munroe-  Laurence Olivier technicolor  "The Prince and the Show  Girl" Thursday and Friday of  this week. This is regarded an  outstanding picture and is also  a first run on the Sunshine  Coast. ���     'f  For Saturday matinee and  Saturday evening, "Santa Fe  Passage", a Trucolor picture  with John Payne, Faith Dom-  ergue and Rod Cameron will  unfold a story with western  flavor about,' an old-time epic  of the early days of the west.  All evening shows start at 8  pt.m. arid Saturday matinee  starts at 2.00 p.m.  There will be two Jackpots,  Thursday/for adults and Saturday for students. The theatre  will not open Monday nights.  For next week, Thursday  and Friday, Nov. 7 and 8, Burt  Lancaster and Dianne Foster  will star in "The Kentuckian."  This Technicolor picture is based on the novel Gabriel Horn  by Felix Hart and deals with  early Kentucky days. This  picture has been' rated highly  in the movie world. v  "Ghost Town" will be, shown  Saturday* Nov. 9, afternoon  and evening, with Kent Taylor,  John Smith and Marian Carr.

Avoiding sharp fin ^protrusion,  rear fender lines sweep outward from the body, then curl  around the tail light ensemble  to form a shape which stylists  likened to a graceful gull-wing  in flight-  Important in the broad gains  along the mechanical front is  the adoption of coil springs at  the rear wheels as a standard  fixture. Long a front-end feature on Chevrolet, the coils  cushion shocks far better than  previous suspension systems.  As optional equipment, the  the company additionally pioneers in its field a new "Level  Air" suspension, employing  for the first time rubber bellows at all four wheels.  Through an inter-connected air  supply and exhaust system ,  with levelling valves, this sus- <:  pension assures precisely the  same resistance to shock regardless of car load.  For the first time in the history of the State Fisheries Department, pink salmon are being  spawned directly from salt water,  a story in The Seattle Times, ox  Oct. 4 says.  "This occurrence opens up a.  world of possibilities in the rearing of pink and chum salmon',  C. H. Ellis, Supervisor of the department's hatchery research,  said today.  "In the past, all salmon have  been taken from fresh water for  egg-*taking and subsequent rearing of progeny. The fresh-water  maturing period has always bedn  considered necessary for pink  salmon, as wtell as for other  species".  The salt-water spawning occurred at the Bowman's Bay station.-  The possibility of such spawning  was learned by accident.  The pinks returning to the  Bowman's Bay sta/tion are returns from a casual plant in  1955,. when pink fingerlings,; infected with a parasite, were  flushed from holding ponds  through a drain pipe into salt  water.       *  Now, the salmon have returned! to the drain pipe, the point  of their release, rather than to  a specific stream or body oi  water.

The following announcement  emanates from the premier's  office:  The attention of the government was drawn to the fact  that while a single residential  building with two housekeeping units therein, with one  housekeeping unit occupied by  the owner, was eligible for the  tax credit, a parcel with two  separate single housekeeping  unit homes' thereon, with one  home *, occupied by the owner  was not.  The present interpretation of  an eligible residence has been  reviewed, and the tax credit  will be afforded not only to  parcels with one residential  building with two housekeeping units therein, but also to  parcels with not more than two  ��ingle housekeeping unit /Residences thereon, providing one  of the housekeeping mnits ih  .each case is occupied by the  owner.  This interpretation has been.  furnished to collectors to -indicate that the province will re?,  imburse municipalities for; tax  credits on the current-year proy  perty taxes that are afforded:  under this interpretation.*  Should this interpretation; re-  quire statutory amendment, apr  propriate recommendations  will be made.
