With propane now'available  in bulk form on the peninsula  many residents will be able to  avail themselves ��� of automatic  heat for their homes. The versatilefuel has long been a favorite in remote camps and commercial installations "for every  purpose from heating arid cooking, ,to lighting and refrigeration.  Commenting.on the high acceptance of Propane fuel,.. Mr.  McRae stated: "The safety and  freedom from maintenan^ are  major factors, as well as the  superiority of gas over other  - fuels- for- cooking- ahdTheafing.

All this was proven before Mr. Langstaffe reached  his final encore.  He showed mastery in the  French tongue with enunciation more clear than many  French singers. His Handel, .  Mozart and Gounod arias were  good;*"'In the Handel recitative,  from Julius Caesar he carried  one into the drama of the work.  r The Don Giovanni serenade  by Mozart gave him a chance  to reveal a lighter vein following the heavier Julius Caesar  and he clearly revealed his  mood adaptability.  In Samuel Barber's The Daisies, considerable tonal control '  was demanded and he succeeded beautifully. The poem was  by James Stephens. Declaration of Independence, a song  about a child and independence  was deft in its presentation and  a little gerri iri itself. There '  were some songs in the modern musical idiom which some  liked and others were not so  sure, such as Kurt Weill's Lonely House arid Mary. Howe's  When I Died in Berners Street.  No matter what the audience  liked   or*, did  not   like   about  A surprise  Surprising initiative on the  . part of the Sechelt Brownie  Pack resulted in a collection of  hundreds of egg cartons, coat  hangers and Betty Crocker box  tops, which were purchased by  the local Tom Boy store and  Peninsula Cleaners.

The remainder of��the pro- ,  gram was taken up with lighter, and contemporary numbers  including some without accompaniment.^* His accompanist,  Donald' King Smith, would  have, pleased the audience if  he had had a solo number to  play. ��� F.C.  Over 100 see  Air club fi!m$  About 100 persons attended  Elphinstone Aero Club's showing of two air movies following a speech by John MacDonald, federal inspector of airports.. Mr. MacDonald's speech  is of such interest that a good  portion of it will be found on  Page 6.  Mr. Bob Ritchey, of the air  Club who has done considerable work in getting the airport established safd it could  take about $4,000 riio.re to make  the airport in a c ondition  where it would be in a position to apply for a licence. Refreshments were served after '  the meeting.  At the monthly meeting" of  the, Sechelt L.A. to Guides.and  Brownies, in St. Hilda's Parish Hall, Mrs. Betty Williams  of Sechelt was appointed Hun-  echiri District commissioner by  the Guide Headquarters.  The name 'l.Jonechin' was  chosen on advice of the Indian  Band, as the name of the first  Chief of the Blanket Tribe of  Sechelt.' Several local places  are honored by this name, including ihe original trail from  Porpoise Bay to Sechelt.  Division Commissioner Mrs.  Sergant outlined the different  divisions on the peninsula. Port  Mellon to Powell River is to  be known as the Sunshine Division; Pert Mellon to Roberts  Creek as Elphinstone District  and Wilson Creek to Powell  River as the Hunechin District.

The, matter was brought to the  attention of the Village Commission Tuesday night by  ,Chab*man A.E.

A good crowd of Vancouver  Art patrons attended the opening, and' a number of sales was  made. The exhibition will ���be  open' to the public until Nov. 30.  Readers of the Coast -News  might be interested in Mr. Roys  ���biographical data, in view of the  iact that he and his family in  tend to become "locals" of our  beautiful   Sunshine   Coast.

Outbreak of peace  Going back some 39 years one's memory can recall events  which at the time were humorous but today contain a great deal  of what one could call the sardonic.  One regiment a very few days after the Armistice was on  a training route march and on passing a certain house was startled to see one of its missing members hi a second storey window  waving a bottle of cognac with unsteady hand. Someone in passing shouted to him and asked him what he was doing there. Back  came the answer like a shot: "I'm sholebratin' the outbreak of  peace."  Thirty-nine years ago it was funny. Today ��� the outbreak of  peace still has not been resolved. Sardonic? Definitely so. In  that 39 years we have had another war and we still have, to prepare for what could at any time be a third great holocaust.  The soldier in the window was an Irishman who naturally  ran afoul of military law and received military punishment. But  if the problem had ended there the "outbreak of peace" would  have been worthwhile. Possibly the generation to come might  find a way out of the morass in which we find ourselves. Let us  hope, fervently that they will.'  Expensive fishtails  British Columbia motorists have been advised to expect  a 10 percent increase in insurance rates next year. The higher  charge will be more noticeable outside Victoria, Vancouver and  the Fraser Valley, according to the forecast, presumably because  Vancouver and.Fraser Valley claims have averaged less than  those for other parts of the province.  The average, insurance' authorities point out, rose from  $275 two years ago to $297-last year.  Drivers, good and bad, have come to recognize the fact  that when repair costs covered by insurance go up so do the  rates. That is the natural course if insurance companies are to  remain in profitable business.  But drivers might also note the point that claims are rising above the accident rate. It costs more, apparently, to fix a  car now than it did a year or two ago.  Many factors, not the least of them labor, doubtless enter  into this inflationary trend. At the same time it seems reasonable'to assume that part of the increase is caused by the "gingerbread" on the modern car. There was a time when a dent could  be taken out of a rear fender without a wholei new tail assembly  job/ The riiodern back of a Car ��� though it may be a delight tp  the designer ��� doesn't lend itself to economical repair.  All that glitters on-the modern "model is costing the driver  of British Columbia more ��� not necessarily because he buys the  shiny new model, but because he might, and often does, run into  it.  The man in the old model car may glance a little wryly at  the fishtail on the highway ahead. He's helping to pay for it in  his insurance. ��� Victoria Times.  - Editor: "Sugar and SpiO^r "by  Bill Smiley in Red DeerTAdvocate was published in thl//fiction, Nova Scotia, Advocate^ in  -���'��� the Sept. 26/57 issue.

'KHfcxmazwzfo  Who is considered Canada's  first native-born poet?  Oliver Goldsmith, whose father was a nephew of the noted Irish poet for whom he  was named, holds this distinction. Born at St. Andrews, N.B.  in 1794', the Canadian Oliver  Goldsmith served in the British Army at Saint John, N.B.  In imitation of his great-uncle's  famous poem, The Deserted  Village, he wrote The Rising  Village, first published at London in 1825 and later republished, with additional verses,  in Saint John.  What New Brunswick com-  xnuniiy was created by the depression?  The village of Allardville  owes its exstence to Father Al-  land, a Roman Catholic priest,  who encouraged unemployed  men to settle their families on  "green farms" 4in attractive  land provided by the New  Brunswick government. The  community not only survived  the depression of the 1930's  but flourished.  Who founded the Hebrew Philanthropic Society in  Canada?  Abraham DeSola, a ^member  of an old Spanish-Jewish family living in London, England,  was called to head a synagogue  in Montreal, where he established the first Jewish Sunday  School in Canada. He joined  the staff of McGill University  as professor of Hebrew and  rabbinical literature, and as  lecturer in Spanish. A keen stu-  dant of science and author of  many articles ori oriental languages and Jewish history and  theology, he was a close col-  laborator of Sir William. Dawson and Sir William Logan,  and was for several years president of the Natural History  Society of Canada. He founded  the Hebrew, Philanthropic Society in 1847 and became its  first secretary-treasurer.

And the  only way to accomplish good  works is by * raising funds. s AvJ  the only way to raise funds is  to' have meetings, drag people  out to them, and turn these  people loose von all the other  people with some kind of gimmick for extracting moiiey from  them.  Sad pant, of the whole business  is that, in any community you  name, the wealthiest man couiu  raise'the same amount of money  as all the organizations combio-  ed, in about four seconds, total ,  lapor consasitdng of signing his.  name on a cheque. Even sadder  is the fact thai this never happens, because tlie wealthiest man  didn't get that way by doing  such foolish things.  Perhaps it's just as well.'What  in the world would we do with  fall (those evenings in our lives,  if we didn't have meetings to  bustle off to? You can spend  only so much time rooted to a  chair in front of. the TV set.  without turning into a drooling  idiot. You can stand only so  many evenings listening to the  old Trouble and Strife explain- ���  ing what's wrong vfciith your character.  No, there's something exhilarating a .b o ii t meetings.

T- Meetirigs are a good safety  vaive for a lot of people, You can  usually tell what their- home life'  is like from the way they behave  at the; meeting. The madame  chairman who can lay out a tund  raising campaign with the' bold,  (brilliant strokes of a' Napoleon  is the one whose children are  the worst brats in town, whose  husband is a neglected-looking  specimen,. whose housekeeping  would make a Zulu wife shudder.  The little man at the meeting  who pounds the table, argues  with everybody, leaps up to make  amendments to the motion and  threatens to resign if it isn't  done his way, is the fellow whose  only contribution to the conversation when he's at home is:  "Yes, dear".  Then there's the bird who  agrees with everybody, and is  too chicken to vote if it Comes!  to a showdown. Not to mention  the exasperated secretary, who  is ttrying-^to put into English a  motion from the floor after six  interruptions, four amendments  and several revisions of . the  original wording and idea.  At most meetings, a familiar  figure is the harassed young matron. She arrives a little breathless and plenty irritable, hat  Slightly askew, lipstick looking,  as though she'd put it on with  her elbow. She has just finished  wrestling a couple of kids off to  . bed, and stacking a big heap of  ", dirty dishesJ in the sink." She'd y  fed up with meetings and organ-.  izations and for two pins wouldf  quit.  But she gets sort of caught  up in the plans for the tea, or  the skating .party, or the concert,  and takes a vigorous par. in the  debate. It's not until she's home  that her senses return and she  realises with horror that she's  promised to-sell ten tickets, bake  four pies and* help decorate the  hall.

'v��v ���   *?.  Thirty all-new mbdels"ln" Sev-"  en series, incorporating dozens  of new features, distinguish the  1958 Pontiac introduced by  General Motors of Canada Limited! Pontiac for 1958 leads  with the Bonneville, the Star  Chief series, followed by the  Super Chief, Chieftan, Parisi-.  enrie, Laurentian, Strata Chief  and Pathfinder series.  Pontiac offers new innovations for 1958. Lower, longer,  wider than ever, 1958 Pontiacs  combine high performance  with high style and luxurious  interiors. Coil springs replace  the conventional leaf springs  in rear suspension, while air  ride suspension is optional on  all models, along wth improved  fuel injection, introduced by  Pontiac last year.  The new Astro-Flame V8 engines, with displacement of  348 cubic inches, and developing 250 h.p., are designed to  deliver the power where most  needed ��� in the traffic range.  Astro-Flame V8 has four barrel  carburetion. Super Astro-  Flame V8 has triple two barrel  carburetors, developing 280  h.p. Both engines have Pontiac's Wedge-Fire combustion  chambers.  Sputniks at  Port Mellon  The fact that Port Mellon is  keenly interested in scientific .  pursuits is evidenced by the  -great interest shown by many  local citizens in the subject of  sputniks.  During the lonely watches of  the night numerous observations have been made and with  some astonishing results*.  Although none of the various  sightings herein reported have  been officially verified we feel  they will be of interest to many  of pur readers.  / iSudy Werbicki coming off _  graveyard shift^ was the first  to report a sputnik. "It wobbled like crazy," Rudy reported, "right over the Machine  Room."  A few mornings later a second observation was made by  Tim Meredith. "It flew like a  golden chariot," Tim reported  at, breakfast.  Unfortunately Tim removed  his glasses during the'observa-  tion to clean them and when  he put his glasses on again the  sputnik" had gone.  He'did hear a "beep-beep",  but agrees that this may have  been the "Auto-CalL"  Perhaps the most bizarre  sputnik thus far recorded was  seen by Georgie Hostland.      v  Georgie had just eaten sev-  cake at Seaside Inn and was  eral pieces of his 21st birthday  crossing the bridge when the  sputnik appeared.  "It had big red eyes," said  George, "like hot glowing coals '  of fire."  "Big pink antennas," George  continued, "waving back and  forth."  The watchmen have all been  questioned concerning sputniks but displayed professional  reticence concerning the subject and would neither confirm  nor deny the various observations.  "Us watchmen," said Frank  Skidmore, "has to be sure we  sees what we thinks we sees  before we says We saw what  we saw." .��� Port Mellon Thunderbird.  A correction  In a nev^s item from the  Powell River News used in last  week's Coast News on ferry  rates, the ferry company compared truck rates with... car  rates in one paragraph, stating  "A trucker, on commutation  rates, at present pays $4,.32 for'  an average truck, some pay as  low as $3.40 for truck and driver. A passenger car pays $7.8(H  for a smaller space ..."  The comparison as given to  the Powell River News, was inaccurate, and should read:  "... A passenger car pays $4.00  for a smaller space .. ."

The first question that probably comes to mind will be:  How will your cities benefit  by having their own landing  facilities?  The benefts are almost limitless.

In addition, an airport in  this area provides an emergency landing field for all wheel  type aircraft flying the mainland coastal route.  Just as the first cars in your  cities turned the buggy shops  and livery stables into auto repair and sales organizations,  your airport will bring a brand  new business to your community.
