WHITE SIOEWALLS  Three new hydro - electric  generating stations will be officially added to the B.C. Electric system at a ceremony in  Hotel Vancouver, commencing  at 8 p.m., Nov. 26.  Hon. Ray Williston, minister  of lands and forests, will'per-.  - form the ceremony as Cheakamus, Clowhom and LaJoie  generating stations, totalling  260,000 horsepower, formally  become part of the campany's  generating  system.-  ���'..*,-���  The three plants will raise  the company's total power output to over 1,000,000 horsepower, more, than three times  what it was at \ the end of  World "VVar Hwo.  The new t power plants will  be dedicated by ,Rt. Re*. G.P.  Gower, Bishop of New Westminster.    ' ' '.  Largest pf*the three stations,  Cheakamus, 190,000 h.p., is located on the Squamish River,  65 miles north of Vancouver.  Clowhom, 40,000 h.p. was built  ���at the hea.ti.of Salmon Inlet,  northeast or Sechelt.. LaJoie,  30,000 h.p., is Ideated on the  Bridge River, 130 miles northwest of Vahcouver.  Clowhom was expanded in  the last 16 months from 4,000  ELECTION  SIMMERS  Gibsons municipal election pot  is starting to simmer and the  position now is that three seats  have to be filled election day.  Chairman * 6f the commission,  A. E. Ritchey will resign, as required under the new election  clauses of the Municipal act and  has announced he will seek;the  chairmanship' again, a.X ���:_-������ ~ :y;.  Coiwnils&'one^  is    resigning    and will not run  again, havng completed his two  year term. Too much other work  is forcing him out. ....*,  Commissioner Harold Wilson,  also retiring,, will, run again.  A new name has been presented and it is T. R. Adams, retired  who has consented to run.  The Gibsons Ratepayers' association has announced -a meeting  ���for Tuesday, Dec. 26 in the United Church hall for the purpose  of nominating a caftdidate.  h.p. to 40,000 h.p. The original  plant was) purchased Jin 1956  froni B.C. Power Commission  and the expansion program  was started in the summer of  that year. Cost of this project  was $6,500,000. General contractor for the project was  Emil Anderson Construction  Co. Ltd.  The enlarged station, said  Tom Ingledow, B.C. Electric  vice-president and executive  engineer, will be used as a  standby source of power for  the growing number of customers served by the 101-mile  Cheeky e-Powell R'iver transmission line which went into  operation at 132,000 volts in  the fall of 1956.  "This is an isolated circuit,"  Mr. Ingledow explained,  "which travels through extremely rough country. If it  should be knocked out for any  reason the new Clowhom plant  will be able to pick up the load  and carry it until the line crew*  can get out and repair the damage."  Waters from Clowhom  Lakes are impounded by a concrete dam 75 feet high and  1500 feet in length. A steel  penstock, or pipe, 900 feet long-  and 14 feet in diameter plunges  the water 175 feet to spin the  40,000 horsepower turbine in  the power house built on the  banks of Salmon Inlet, near  the old 4,000 h.p. generating  station. ,  CNIB drive  moves along  The chairman of the Peninsula Branch of the Canadian  , National Institute for the Blind  ? reports that: the Taiintial Team-: T ps^d divideads.M^^vTNine.  paign for funds in his area is    & percent of people were hon  reviewed  . Talks on the management of  credit to members ,6f Gibsons  and Sechelt Boards of Trade:  and members of the Sunshine  Coast Merchants Credit Association featured Monday  night's meeting of Gibsons  Board of Trade at Danny's  Dining room.  Herbert Barnes, past president of the Retail Credit'Grantors association of Vancouver  delivered an informative des-  cripton of the ways by which  merchants can protect themselves against deadbeats. He  snowed the vaiue of using credit ratings and stressed that no"  matter where anyone moved to  they could be reached, through;  ���credit associations, so escaping  payment of debts was a difficult thing.  He explained how years ago  credit managers of big depart-.  xuenc. adored were secretive  about their operations but today due to the expansion of  credit facilities the various  credic managers were working  ciose together. Today it is next  to impossible to do business^  _ without credit and the wise  businessman belonged to some  credit organization which had  affiliations with other credit  units and thus was able to  benefit from their resources,  he said.  Information should be obtained from a person seeking  credit and these days witn  credit being so universal the  average person had no objection to- answering basic questions! There would be the odd  difficult person and it, would  be better to regard him as a  bad credit risk, Mr. Barnes  said.'' *     X'  X:."  In handling strangers, Mr.  Barnes advised being, ^rank. It  '"I As a public service the Coast News has opened its news  ; cplmuns to both sides of the pulp and paper mill dispute. In this  issue, each side is stating its case. If rebuttal is necessary, both  sides will have an opportunity in the next issue. After that the  niptter will be treated on an advertising basis and space would  have to be pui'chased if further argument were deemed  necessary. '  UNION  yjpoast News: We thank you  itfc this opportunity of presetting pur side of the present  dispute in the Pulp and^aper  Girl Guide  ra  A Girl Guide Rally will be  held Saturday in Port Mellon  Community Hall with Guides  from West Vancouver, Sechelt,  Gibsons and Port Mellon attending.  The program will commence  with a Guides' Own Church  Servise at 3:30 p.m. followed  by 'a supper and evening program!' ,  . Parents and friends are invited to be present from 7:30  tp 9 p.m.  Four new members were, welcomed to the meeting of the  Ladies Auxiliary to the . Girl  Guides and Brownies at the home  of Mrs." J. Wilson with Mrs. Labonte, district commissioner in  the  Chair.  Mrs. Sergant, divisional commander spoke of the need for  more members and plans were  made for a rally Nov. 513, 7:30  p.m. at Port Mellon. Mrs. Peterson was appointed badge secretary, Mrs Cartwright, treasurer  and Mrs. Lillejord, Godmother to  the Guides.     .  It was noted, that all Guide  companies on the peninsula have  a. company flag except Gibsons  First Guides. A vote of-thanks  ���was sent the Canadian Legion  for a donation of rent for Guide  meetings, from October to December. .  The next meeting will be held  a!t the home of Mrs. Labonte Dec.  2 and 2 p.m.  nearly finished and there are  only one or two districts where  the canvass is not complete Qt  this date.  Sechelt and Selma Park  were completed last week and  while returns were slightly  below the total for last year  much credit is due the people  who canvassed the districts  and those who contributed.  Their efforts and contributions  are greatly appreciated* , par-  ticularlv in this year when  "the C.NJ.B. expects .to have  large capital expense in connection with the building of  a new centre in. Vancouver for  the care and rehabilitation of  the blind.

People who are proud of their  credit rating will not hesitate  in answering necessary questions, so anyone who blows his  top when questioned should be  suspect. '" ���"  In making reports, Mr.  Barnes said it was advisable to  be prompt and as complete as  possible. He advised the keep-  ling of files for quite a period  as the information was valuable.  Collection suggestions involved a definite plan of routine which one should stick  to., Monthly analyses should  be'turned over to the credit  bureau. Collections should be  made right after due* date and  promises not fulfilled should  be followed up quickly.  Never bluff your customer,  Mr. Barnes said. Mean what  you say because the first jtime  your bluff is called would not  be the last and' would lead to  bad debts. Credit business can  be* profitable if you follow the  rules    carefully    Mr.    Barnes  ���annual meeting at Roberts  Creek Hall, 7 p.m. : Friday,  Nov. 22. :?'"���  This meeting is open to the  public, especially to parents  who. have boys of cub and  scout age to come and see what  the scouts have to offer.

Jones  of Vancouver. The company  has procured property, facing  the municipal hall, from H.  Pearson of Roberts Creek. The  property is approximately 100  x 160 ft. and the new building  will house the automatic system only. Bernel Gordon of  Sechelt handled the transaction for B.C. Telephone.  , Thomas Downie, owner-manager of the Retail Credit Grantors Bureau of Vancouver displayed various means of drawing attention to the fact that  one belonged 'to a credit bureau arid various forms required  for proper maintenance of' a  credit, checking system. Mr.  Downie said every deadbeat  started in some small store because credit restrictions were  lax. Some form of protection  ,was necessary.  . .Speakers were'. introduced  by Sam Fladager and Magistrate Andy Johnston- Ted Henniker thanked the visitors for  their exposition on the strength  and ramifications of a credij;  system..

WHITE ELEPHANT SALE  What you may see at white  elephant sales may be out of  this world and it is quite likely that the Sechelt Kinsmen  club White Elephant sale, Friday in the,Legion Hall may be  no exception.   ,  Based on the experience of  a Gibsons sale last-year, Sechelt Kinsmen -are looking towards an intriguing sale at  which some of the most surprising things will   crop up.  ��lustry to all the readers of,  your valued paper. We feel that  yttte   followingmessage    will  Ts-oPWthat no other alternative  T0^(ieft��^*;*the ��� Uni<^-.except-  strike. action    and   that   the  wage, increase was only.one of  many issues.  The 1957 Bargaining conference commenced in Vancouver  on June 18, 1957. At this point  the Union submitted a 26 point  agenda' covering money items  and requested contract changes  . The manufaccurers also submitted a list of proposed changes.  From the very start of- the  conference our international  unions and delegates were desirous of reaching a satisfactory agreement with ihe manufacturers. However the manufacturers through their appra-  ent desire to kill time on the  discussion of minor issues  clearly indicated that they  were not intent on coming io  an early and aftiicable settlement. "    /  After lengthy discussions on  both sides, the manufacturers  finally made their initial offer of 2V2% on June 24. Tlie  unions and delegates reconsidered their position and submitted a revised agenda which was  considered moderate,;- and in  line with other agreements negotiated in B.C., and iri other  parts of Canada and the U.S.A.  Money items which we deleted  at this time were:  Additional statutory holiday '���*.  with pay.  Proposed welfare plan on  tonnage basis.  Sick leave plan,.  Reduced percentage increase  demand from 15% to 12%.  The manufacturers refused  to seriously consider our revised agenda. Then on June 27  they requested a deferment of  bargaining until July 11., with  no bona fide reasons as far as  our unions and delegates were  concerned. This was just another stall to see what happened in the l.W.A. dispute. The  unions refused to agree to the  delay, and negotiations were  then broken off and a concilia-  (Coniinued on Page 4)  PTA MEETING  Elphinstone PTA will meet  Nov. 25 in Elphinstone. High  School at 8 o'clock when Mr.  Potter, principal and Mr. Cooper will discuss the report card  and qualities that make for  success in school.  MANAGEMENT  The companies which are  parties, to the Standard Labor  Contract of the Pulp and Paper  Industry of British Columbia,  which group includes Howe  Sound Pulp Division of Canadian Forest Products, offered  before the strike vote was tak-  ���: -eh to effect a* settietmehtwith  the union on the basis of the  majority award of the Conciliation board. That is, the companies each offered to grant a  general wage increase of 71/_%  with an additional 5c per hour  to "A" mechanics and 3c per  hour to "B" mechanics; extend  the present night shift differential of 7c per hour to 16  hours; and carry out all of the  ' remaining provisions of the  award, -which, among other  things/includes additional paid  vacations and the re-writing  of the seniority clause eliminating the words "The decision  of Management shall govern  and be final." All pf this offer  was to be retroactive to July  1, 1957.   .  This would provide the highest known settlement in the  Pulp, and Paper Industry in  North America in the year  1957. It means for the average  hourly paid employee an increase of %Vz%, or 20c more  per hour, thus maintaining the  employees of the British Columbia group a�� the top wage  earners in the Pulp and Paper  Industry in Canada.  The lowest wage paid in our  British Columbia Pulp and Paper mills would be increased  by 13c per hour from the present $1.72 to $1.85 per hour..  The average hourly earning  in our British Columbia Pulp  and Paper mills is approximately $2.30 an hour. This is  the figure which the average  employee gets in his pay  cheque. It includes vacation  and holiday pay, overtime,  night shift differential, call  time and other allowances ���  but not such things as health  and welfare, workmen's compensation and such like. A  settlement on the basis of the  board award would raise this  average hourly earning figure  to approximately $2.50 an  hour.  Ibis would mean that the  British Columbia F'.ulp and Paper employees continue to be  the highest paid in the Pulp  and Paper Industry in Canada.  SQUEEZED OUT  Owing to pulp and paper  mill strike activity reports  published in this edition a considerable amount of regular  news has been squeezed out. It  will be used, where possible, in  next week's paper.  The following is a news release from H.H. Williamson,  tariff filing agent for the truckers along the Sunshine Coast.  The 93% increase.in truck  crossing charges, on December  1st, 1957, forces truck operators to increase freight rates.  1'he direct cost increase to  per   100   pounds   on   freight  truck operators is 5 to 15 cents  transported over  a  12  month  period.  1'ruck freight rates and subsequent overall profits are  controlled by the Public Utilities Commission of B.C., but  Black Ball Ferry charges are  obviously hot subject to such  control.  The statement by a Black  Bali Ferry official that the unprecedented 93% increase can  be offset by "one cent a pound  to a few things," is unfounded  and incorrect.  Truck operators will maintain their daily service to the  area in question, but of necessity will pass on the effect of  the drastic 93% ferry crossing  increase in as fair and equitable a manner as possible.  The four carriers serving  Gibsons to Earl Cove, pay into  the coffers of Black Ball, annually .approximately $24,000  at the present time,.  Charges are double for carriers serving ths Powell River  area.  All carriers will pay almost  double these amounts  during  1958.  H.H. Williamson,  Tariff Filing Agent.  Boys band  parade  The Sechelt School Bandv under "the able direction of_Jerry  Fahrni, performed admirably  under the wettest of circumstances for Poppy Day, after  only two weeks practice".  The 25 youngsters marched  like soldiers as they headed  the parade of veterans, Legion-  aires, Ladies Auxiliary, Brownies and Guides from the Legion  nail to the Cenotaph where  many wreaths were placed in  honor of those who gave their  lives.       ���,'...  The children had been practising for two months, three  days a week at noon hour with  mouthpieces and sticks.. The  School Board purchased the  trumpets and drums which ar��  rived two weeks before the  Remembrance Day Services.  Mr. Fahrni can be proud of  his pupils, 12 trumpeters, 12  drummers and lbass drummer  Magistrate A. Johnston officiated at the service and  short addresses were given by  Mr. C. Brookman, Wilson  Creek, and Mr. B. Smith of  Sechelt:  The Wilson Creek Brownie  Pack joined with Sechelt in  the parade. The .number of  people who turned out on such  a stormy rainy day was gratifying.  Scouts to meet  First Gibsons Scout troop  will report at the Elementary  school at 6.30 p.m. Friday  evening instead of 7 p.m. and  Scouts are asked io wear as  much uniform as they possess.  This does not include probationers.  There are now 17 members  in the troop and others who  have not turned in completed  application forms are asked  to bring them to this meeting.  OPEN HOUSE  The Mothers' Group of the  new Davis Bay School is planning Open House and a sale of  home cookinc. Tues., Nov. 26  from 1 to 2:30 p.m.  The girls, with the aid of  their mothers, turned over to  the Red Cross $10.75 from  their last cookie sale. The event  will give all a chance to inspect the school.

It is true Black Ball and the truckers have the right to do  as they please but in these times public relations can go a long  way to offset bad feeling. Experience has shown that putting the  cards on the table and taking the public intpone's confidence  goes a long way towards maintaining good public! relations.  In small communities, as in larger ones, Dame Rumor can .  do a terrific amount of harm if left to her own deivicesi The  Coast News obtained its most specific Black Ball information  from a recent copy of the Powell River News in which was outlined a comprehensive view of the situation as far as Black Ball  was concerned. Why the Coast News could not have received a  complete statement on which to oifer judgment editorially, from  both Black Ball and the truckers' organization is one of those  things that could be cleared up for the future. What editorial  comment the Coast News did make was based on local 'gleanings  largely and naturally some hedging resulted.  f  There are rights and wrongs in all cases and invariably  the "wrongs," right or wrong, get prominence in the public mind.  All this could have been avoided with a reasonably clear statement from both sides. '  Another item that could have helped would have been a  story on the removal of the Smokwa from the Langdale-Horse-  shoe Bay run. This may seem a small matter to some people but*  to others it is a sere point ��� because no warning was -given and  no reason offered,. It might be and probably is quite logical for  Black Ball to take a ferry off for the time being owing to necessary maintenance work but it would ease disgruntled minds if the  matter were explained.  , ,,,.There are those.organizations who do .not believe in; public relations.and there are those who have a good product to sell  and who are firm believers in keeping their name "sweet" in the  public mind. Black Ball and the truckers have the right to do  as they please bjit the public reacts to a situation with remarkable speed. This should npt be overlooked.  BECKONING SKYLINE  The other day a friend of  mine had his 88th birthday. He  is' a loveablfe old man, / industrious and ah excellent; neighbor. He is not much of a read--  er and Wheii' I quoted ^he* passage: "The best is yet-to be,"  he was'interested. "Who said  that?" he inquired; I 'replied  "Robert Browning." "WelJ, he;  must nave been a wise man and  a good man," he commented.  I have never cared to argue  religious beliefs but it has always seemed to me that belief  in a larger  fuller  life is  instinctive with us, and that belief   is  pretty   general.  Years  ago a man I knew bought some  young fruit trees for bis garden. He showed me the catalogues   and  said:   "They   told  me the flavour of these plum  trees would be so and so, and  when they develop if that isnt  so   I'll check them up  about  it ���'' He' was in his 79th year  and passed on long before the  trees matujed,  but he  never  even thought, of such a thing.  We feel that life goes on, it is  continuous and we seldom sit  down   and  say:   "This   is  the  end."    ��� ,   '���   XX  -    *    *    * S  I have been tolerant ai\d often admired many things about  men who were sceptics about  religion, but it is a frame of  mind that" I feel is one of despair. No doubt many of our  theories about that larger life  are crude, but to think that  man is mortal, I find incredible and a philosophy of hopelessness.

The O.verlanders of '62 was  another name also applied to  several parties of young emigrants from Eastern Canada  who journeyed overland to the  gold fields of [Cariboo in British" Columbia. They numbered  about 200 persons in all. ����ost  of them came from Ontario, a  - few from Quebec. Many of  those who persevered to the  end of the difficult journey settled in various parts of B.C.  and several-became leading citizens. ��� ' ���* ' T.  Who was Dr. Allan Daibe?  Dr. Dafoe was the attending  physician at an event that  made medical history ���-: the  birth of the celebrated Dionne  quintuplets at. Callander/ Ont.  on May 28, 1934. He wasTplac-  ed in charge of their welfare  by an act of the provincial legislature and was created OJ3.E.  in 1935.

Marie Dressier, a Canadian-  born actress who died in 1934  was extremely popular in the  film comedy role of Tugboat  Annie in a series of motion pictures. Also a successful dra-  matc star, she received the  Motion Picture Aiward as best  actress in 1931. She was born  Leila Koerber at Coburg, Ont,  and ran away with a touring  troupe at 17. She scored a number of stage successes around  the turn of the century but  it was not until 1930 that she  achieved tremendous film success in "Anna Christie"; with  Greta Garbo. ;.'.'.   a  Who was the first woman in  ihe Commonwealth to become  a county court judge?

He  answers:   "We are  here to  grow souls; no  other  theory fits the facts nor satisfies the conscience." Thousands  of years   ago   in  the  earliest  forms    of'    civilization,    men  stretched   their  hands  put  to  God as Longfellow said of the  Indians    in    this    contineint:  "That  the*, feeble   hands   and  helpless groping blindly in the  darkness    touch    God's   right  hand in the darkness and are  lifted up and strengthened."  ��l. .t> ��.*>  ���T"       *t��       ���*���  This belief of the savage Indian was not something tp  dread but the cry of human  spirits for divine help, an inspiration for spiritual living. I  think that, with all our increased knowledge no other  pursuit for wealth, fame, or  pleasure is as satisfying as this  one: "We are here to grow  souls." When the old Hebrews  laid away their dead, they said:  "He was gathered unto his fathers." That is full of suggestion. It suggests the social life  of the hereafter. It makes me  think of a beautiful poem by  the late Robert Freeman that  exquisitely sets forth this  truth: - ���    -  When men go down to the sea  in ships,  'Tis not to the sea they go;  Some isle or pole the mariners'  goal,  And thither they sail through  calm and gale,  When down to the sea they go.

That'sTjust comparable to what  we got from the Union Steamships 35  years ago,   the only  difference was that it was  a  little   more  pleasant   on  the...  Union by moving all the time  and calling in every bay and  cove, but now Black Ball gives  a double dose. They take your  money and what extortion and  shout through a loud speaker  to line up and wait. And what  a wait, especially this last long  weekend.  My son-in-law phoned LangdaleTaroxind noon Nov.  11 and asked what time would  he have to get there; to catch  the 4.30 ferry. He was told to  get there by 3.30 to make sure.  To make doubly sure they left  our house at 2.30, got there in  about 10 minutes and were.told,  that they would have to stay  there till at least 7-40 ferry but  of course they took his money  first.  Rather than stay in. their car  in the swamp facing the south  east driving wind and rain,  they left their car in the lineup, hired a taxi and came home  and were picked up by the  taixi to take them back at 7  p.m., an added $2.50 to the $10  that they had contributed to  the Black Bali Ferries coffers.  Isn't it a farce? This Mr.  Birse commented sometime in  late October that the Black/  Ball was going to keep up its  services. That was their motto.  About two weeks later they cut  out the Smokwa and said to  their patrons "There you have  it. Take it or leave it."  Us unfortunates, we can't  leave it because we've got, to  go to the city on rare occasions.  In my case for instance I've  been to and fro to the doctors  at Shaughnessy with a broken  leg for over a year.

An important thing to remember at this time, when the  Pulp and Paper manufacturers would not offer mr. fe than  2*/2% plus .05c; that on the eve  ?f their strike, the I .W.A.r was  granted a lVz% wage increase  lugeihtr with three weeks ���vacation after five years, and  other improved working conditions. This was all granted by  the lumbering industry which  was supposed to be in a very  depressed state.  Even though our own pulp  and paper manufacturers were  unable to make an offer of  more than 2V��% plus .05c during our-negotiations, in this  same period they did make a  substantial pay increase to  their own managements fin excess of 8%.  Two meetings were . held  with the conciliation ofi|Rer  on July 23 and 24, but his attempts at getting a settlement  were fruitless. He then, applied  to the minister,-'of labor to  have a conciliation, board appointed.  During the prolonged period  of bargaining, our international officers and delegates exhausted every possible means  to get an agreement signed,  but without result. The delaying tactics of the manufacturers this year has been very  costly to the locals, as far as  tranportation, wages and expenses of delegates were concerned. Most of this would  have been avoided had the  manufacturers come to Vancouver last June with an honest  intent to bargain collectively.  Before going into session the  conciliation board were handed ��  our revised agenda which contained 12 unsettled items.  The board submitted their  report on Sept. 30. The reRort  was not, acceptable to our international unions and delegates, and we were advised to  turn it down. This we did in  Loca 297 with a 91% majority.  The manufacturers accepted  the conciliation board's offer  contained in the majority report and we received two misleading letters Srom management, advising us to do the  same or suffer the cohsequen-  ..pes..: ���.....'.. Z-.   : . ;..;,.y'y.   ,. ..���,��������� ;   ~-';j  Let us again, analyze ther majority rep'or-t and show you further why 6,000 Pulp and Paper  Mill Workers and on strike  with just cause:���  WAGE INCREASE .  Our present negotiable figure of 12 % may appear out  of line to you, .but please consider the following facts very  carefully. Two years ago we  settled for 5% for the first  year and .05c per hour increase  for the second year. You will  remember that, due to the un:  expected increase in/the cost  of living, the original-5% increase iwas nullified before the  .05c increase became effective.  Recent ��� newspaper report's on  the pulp and paper industry in  B.C. disclosed last year's* gross  sales as approximately $224,-  000,0001 The press also recently carried headline news to the  effect that this strike .represented a pay-roll loss of $1,000,-  000 per week, or $52,000,000  per year. We then see that the  ratio of wages to sales in-B.C.  is. less than insome other parts  of the Dominion. Another very  important factor in reduced  costs to the manufacturer in  B.C. is the privilege of Sunday  running. Considering all the  above facts We maintain that  the industry here in B.C. can  well afford to pay moire than  7Vz%. *"'���;''  ADJUSTMENT FOR  MECHANICS  The conciliation board offered an additional .05c forv"A"  mechanics and .03c for "B"  mechanics, ^bringing our present top rate of $2.27 to $2.49.  The differential between  pulp and paper mill mechanics  and the craft trades in construction and other industries,  continues to grow rapidly. We,  maintain that our. mechanics  should receive rates from $2.50  to $2.60 to decrease the differ- :  ential and in some measure pay  for the versatility required by  journeymen in this industry.  VACATIONS  We requested: three weeks  vacation after five years and  four weeks after 25 years. (Two  weeks vacation after one year  is automatic under the B.C. Annual Vacations Act.) We maintain our, request is reasonable  because it is not an immediate  cost item to,the employer, and  that'it is in keeping with other  agreements completed. Do not  forget that the IWA received  three weeks vacation after five  years, even though the lumber**  ing industry was in a depres-  -*���*  *���*  ***v.-**-'  f  sed state. *���<    X~'  However,    the    conciliation ,  bo*A*d oriervd us a smaUscruinb  in recommending one.additional day per year after ten years *,-..  of service. This is riot accept-  able.   :���:���'��������� y.-.Y,:-Y,yyv  STATUTORY HOLIDAYS  This sub-section nieans^that  if you are directed vto Work  on a holiday and fail to do.so  you will not receive holiday  pay unless" management accepts your reasons for not  working. Our delegates have  requested that this sub-section  be deleted "from the contract,  and that work on holidays be  strictly voluntary.  We h^ye few enough paid  holidays as it is. and We intend  to  use   every   means to  safeguard them.  SENIORITY  Under this section of our  contract, management has the X  final say on all seniority problems. Under such a section you  have only limited union protection. We demand that the last  line of this section be worded  as follows: "Seniority problems shall be subject to the  usual grievance procedure."  The. conciliation board did '  no��� ctgree i,o Jus, but suggested  a rewording of the section,  suitable to both parties (but  carrying a'tail in small print).  In a careful analysis of this  suggested re-wording, our international and delegates recognized that we would still end  up with an objectionable seniority section in our contract.  We want it out.  Many other labor contracts  in Canada and the United  States have had this contentious section removed. Why  should we not have the fullest  possible union protection and  security.  STATEMENT OF POLICY  This section in our contract ������  is a carry-over. from the war  days and is now antiquated:  However, it does, give supervisors the authority to perform  work, on ^certain occasions,  which properly belongs to us.  "\This has become a serious  problem in some mills and we  are determined to have this  statement removed and ?the following substituted: "No supervisor shall do work on jobs  under Union jurisdiction."  The conciliation board again  suggested a re-wording of the  existing section, but which did  not alter the original intent *���  ther^ore. the-section remains  unsatisfactory. We fully realize that in" cases of extreme  emergency that all personnel  must jump in and keep the  mill operating, but we do not  agree with a superficial) section in bur contract' to cover  such occasions.  DOUBLE   TIME   FOR   OVER-  TIME IN/ EXCESS  OF   12  HOURS  The manufacturers steadily  ���crioaiiiittlattB^ig^&Mi^  *=f  iS  mait^kidxin db&rg&i&ing that  overtime is not a problem and-  ac-uajiiy... uxxnecess^i^.i-, Wc _ully^  agree with this and feel that  our demand ~i.or. double time  after 12 hours is not a cost  item andi therefore quite reasonable.

Canada has its first new government in 22 years, its first  minority government in 30  years. While the Liberal party  received the biggest popular  . 'vote across the nation, Hhe  Conservative party won six  more seats and so today is the  government.  Mr. St. Laurent outlined the  Liberal position at the opening  of Parliament,. The Canadian  people had shown that they  wanted a change in government, and the Liberal party accepted this decision. We feel  the Conservative party mubt  be given a fair chance to implement the many promises  they made during the election.  Therefore the Liberal opposition would not move or support any no-confidence moaon  in the Conservative government until it had a fair chance  to put its whole program before parliament. For this reason we voted against no confidence motions moved by the  CCF. and the Social Credit  parties.  We did, however, reserve the  right to criticize and to support or oppose the. details of  legislation placed before Parliament. We all supported.the  20% increase in Old Age Pension .which raised by $9 the  basic pension of $46 provided  by the previous government. I  gladly supported the increase  provided for single recipients  and minor   changes  in   other  "SEE.BETTER" WEEK  Dr. J.S. Clarke, president of  the B.C. Optometric Association, has called for a stronger  parent - teacher relationship  where it concerns school children working below capacity.  "This may be a clue to a seeing problem that can be convention," Dr. Clark*said in an-  rected with an. ounce of pronouncing that Nov. 25-30 has  been designated "See Better  ��� Learn Better, Week" in B.C.  The "Week" is'being sponsored across Canada by provincial  optometric associations-  of the war veterans' allowance,  veterans' legislation.  The government introduced  a bill to provide 150 million  dollars in cash advances on  farm stored grain. The prairie  farmers have a surplus of  wheat and a shortage of cash.  Some eastern Liberal members opposed this legislation on  the grounds that primary producers in their areas ��� farmers, fishermen and loggers ���  were in equally desperate  plight but receiving no consideration. I voted in favour of  the'sef advances for the welfare  of the prairie farmers? has an  important economic effect in  British Columbia, and especially for the port of Vancouver.  Mounting unemployment is  the major domestic problem in  Canada today. As member for  Coast-Capilano I spoke about  the special problem of Britannia Mines, proposing measures  which would keep this community in full employment. I  hope the government will accept these proposals.  Weddinas  AUGUST  DANIELS  George August and Miss^ Tilly Daniels were married at  the Church of the Lady of  Lourdes ih Sechelt, Nov. 9. The  bride was charming in a dress  of blue tulle, and carried white  and red roses, A Kittle niece  caught the bouquet. Miss Phil-  lis Billie was bridesmaid.
