Your purchases should help  build the community in which  you live    '  committee  The Village Commission  will write Premier Bennett to see what can be'  done about settling the  pulp and paper mill strike  which affects Port Mellon  and other mills.  The matter was raised  by Commissioner Harold  Wilson and members) of  the Commission were of.  the opinion it would be a  wise move and would also  put the Commission on  record as making some  move towards getting government intervention.X- A  copy of the letter will be  sent ; tor Tony* Gargrave,  M.L.A. for hisinformation.  Alfred Funnell was again  elected chairman of Sechelt  district school board at the  last board meeting and Norman Hough was re-elected trustee; along with Mrs. A.E*. Ritchey who will be a trustee for  the first tirrte.  This means the school board  will have Mr. Funnell in the  chair, and  the  other trustees  will be Mrs- Swan from Port  Mellon;    Mrs.    Joan    Donley  TfromT* PenderT Harbour;   G.OZ  .Fahrni from Sechelt; Norman:  Franklin   from    Sechelt,   Mr.*  Hough and Mrs. Ritchey from  Gibsons."  TT'School board representatives^.  The   following;is   a   state-  ���' ment offered by the Port Mellon strike committeefollowing .  last week's invitation for rebuttals   in   connection   with -  statements published last week  Thank you for the opportunity of  rebuttal in   our labor ~  dispute with the manufactur-  ers. We have no issue with local management, as the statement published  in your   last  issue was merely ai re-wording  of two previous letters distrib- ;  tited to all hourly paid employees of the industry; just prior  to the strike vote.  Some Tphasesv: of this statement were dealt with in our  letter last week, and we just  wish at this time to comment  on one or two misleading  *; statements..  The manufacturers state that  {he   average  hourly  pay  for  this liridustry,  if we accepted  7^ %i would be $2.50 per hour. ;  So what? This total is arrived' >  ^tTbyytakirig into account ev- .���..  ��ry^pojs'ible.; excuse for a, fringe *.-  benefit that could T be e^  edinto aTcost item. The^eitems  Thiaye^always fisted during ou^  past;  ****:G*  Xjih?'?  they exist as a hidden quantity  behind every agreement to'  sbme extent. In sonie instances  this figure could attain'X the $3  mark, if the firm or industry  had extremely high fringe benefits, pension plans, etc.  However -this: i<* the fir It  have found it necessary to pub-  time that our . manufacturers  lish these itemized fringe benf '  efits as propaganda material.  The issue is hot what yre have  been receiving as a regular  and accepted part of pur normal income, v but what our income should be for our 1957"  contract.  Incidentally-, this rate '��� of  $2.50 per hour includes both  scheduled and unscheduled  overtime, together1 with call  time. We oppose the principle  of overtime as being detrimental to the employment of other  fellow workers. Sunday operation, one large overtime item,-  has always been opposed byy  the various local unions of this X  industry, but is very definitely desirable oh ythe part of  the manufacturers. It would  appear that Jt the mills cah  meet their quotas in 10 months  of the year,' then we should  take a very close look at,,, and  possibly a firiri stand "on Sunday operation.  Another substantial overtime item of the manufacturers choice in some of the mills  is boat loading. This is desir-.'.;���_���  ableas a matter of convenience  and to avdid paying long shoring rates.Tyyy T T ':--x  The manufacturers state that  the  *JVz%bfferywould make  ours the highest known settlement in North America during,  1957/This may be technically!  true, but they forget to mention that  the differential  between  our  contract   and  they  Uniform Labor Agreement in  the Western States is so great  that we would still end up with  16c per hour less on the base  rate.' ' '��������� AX.XZX ���'���'"' :"'"y' ':'-a'Z.. .*  It is important to remember  when ^assessing ,this dispute,  that we are negotiating for a  settlement after a two-year  contract during which time the  industry prospered. At the  same time the cost of living  soared to new heights and we V  lost 611 our financial' gain as .  a result.

Public meeting  on ferry rates  Notice pf a public mfeeting  to be held in the.School Hall  at Gibsons on .Dec. 2 at 8 p.m.  is being circularized to all  points on the Peninsulq.  Under the auspices of the  Roberts Greek Improvement  Association, the meeting will  protest the Black Ball Ferries  increase in trucking rates,because of its effect on bosts.  All interested are urged to:  attend this meeting and discuss  this important matter.

Some phases of work on the  Centennial Yearbook are progressing well. We have been  able to contact several people-  who have pictures arid interesting information of the early  days) Most people are willing  enough to help us in this way.  We now have eight senior citizens over the J age of 90 years  and have heard of a lady on  the Indian reserve who is nearly 100 years old.  We have been unable to find  a picture of the first school  house in this area; located near  the present. Coast News building, and no picture of Miss  Lucy Smith, the first teacher.  Another picture needed badly  is logging by ox-team>. If any  Coast News' readers/ know  where we might get those pictures, we would appreciate the  information.        T  The phase of work not doing  well is advance sales. No doubt  the present strike and the fact  that we have no book to show  are deterring factors. If we  had the money, we would order books and put them on disr  play later. We can't get the  books until we have the money  People of the area should think  about this a little and make  their purchases how. This is  the one chance to get a book  which we feel will be a collector's item some day. To date,  we have sold 275i copies.  SISTER DIES  Rev. D. Donaldson received  a cablegram Saturday morning  notifying him of the death of  his sister in Belfast.

Frank Watson of  Vancouver. Recent provincial  safety conference in Vancouver'sponsored by the B.C. Safety Gpuncil attracted more.than  400 delegates from various organizations throughout B.C.  The B.C.-Electric Company  appeals to residents of Gibsons  and^surrounding areas to advise xthe district office aty Secheli or the R.C.MtP. of any  person doing wilful damage to  company lines or property.  * There has been criticism  made against the company over  continued outages and upon investigation some were found  to be-caused by wilful damage  to property by persons unknown.-  In.; the past five weeks there  have;; been numerous outages  due Zto damage ' to line fuses,  -tran^ormers and insulators  caused by stone throwing and  ri^yfirey The- street lighting  sysl^i;hasl,ais6 been damaged  :���.-.���**.-. ���     *"*T?:V*...-^-.r.^.;~.--J.- ~:i.'-V.V.>"*^1-.l*)>.&-"*V^w  by persons unknown. Other  unnecessary outages have been  caused by the j falling of branches and trees across the lines  during "high winds.  The Company takes full responsibility for the planned  outages which are necessitated in "the re-eonstruction program to bring the system up  to B.C. Electric standards for  the improvement of service to  all bur customers.  Materials for repairing street  lighting damage are paid for  by the Village Commission and  therefore affect the taxpayer's  podktet boPk.\ In .'future) .any  person or persons found damaging comany T property will  be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The B.C. Electric have now established a toll  free line for the reporting of  all emergency or trouble calls.  Please advise your local telephone operator to call ZENITH  6020.  Monday afternoon's sudden  blow caused a power break of  a  little more   than one hour  . when wires in the Bay area  at Gibsons were snapped by  falling timber in a 60 mph  gale.  Other' minor breakages occurred elsewhere and a crew  from Pender Harbour hurrying  down the highway had to remove branch debris from the  . highway. Two: employees on  holiday, in Gibsons area, found  the break and made temporary  repairs.  Reg Adams and Wes Hodgson were nominated Gibsons  and District Ratepayers association village election candidates at Tuesday night's meeting in the United Church hall  when about 40 person's turned  out.  MrP Adams had previously  been nominated by two members, of the Village. commission  to seek one of the two Commissioner seats. Chairman A.E.  Ritchey and Commissioner C.P.  Ballentine signed Mr. Adams'  nomination papers more than  one week ago.  The Ratepayers association  set Wed. Jan 8 as the date for  the annual meeting in the  United Church hall. The problem of the breakwater for Gibsons was brought up but the  chairman decided that owing  to there not being sufficient  basic data before the meeting  it should be left over for future  consideration.  As a result bf a suggestion  by Mrs. R. Telford the association will strive to obtain a copy  of the bill regarding the granting of a franchise to Blac��"Ball  Ferries covering a period of  25 years. Mrs. Telford pointed  out that according to legal ad-  Memorial  proposed  A proposed memorial to the  late Ernest Parr Pearson was.  discussed toy the Sechelt Village Commission, Nov. 20, in  honor of his niany worthwhile  ���community services.

Clerk Ted Ray-  ner was requested to prepare  the provisional budget as required in the Municipal Act,  and to prepare an amending  budget to the annual budget of  May 1, 1957-  Financial affairs report of  the village were approved and  adopted as read. Accounts payable totalling $63.61 were  passed for payment.  vice   given her,  there  was  a  loophole in the   bill   through  . which some  action  could   be  taken to have it .modified.  At the close of theT meeting  Mr. R. Lamont asked why the  Coast News did, not publish ful-'  ler reports of ratepayer meetings. He wag informed that  the Coast News published all  the information it received as  the editor attended village commission meetings on the same  night as the ratepayers' meeting and obtained his information second hand. There was  some discussion earlier on the  selection of a night for association meetings.  Board favors  repeal of bill  The Pendef Harbour Board  of Trade held its annual meeting Nov. 18 and several new  members were introduced. In  the absence of the president,  Dr. Playfair, Lloyd Davis occupied the chair.  Ian Woodburn was elected  president, Royal Murdoch, vice  president and F.H. Fletcher,  secretary treasurer. The executive committee will be Miss  Hassen, Mr. MacDonell. E. Gar-  vey, James Cameron, Ed Lowe,  G. Gordon, L. Larson, Norman  Lee, Oliver Dubois and E. Lee.  An effort will be made to  have some of the creeks in the  Kleindale area cleared so that  dog salmon can get up to  spawn. This matter will be  taken up with the Fisheries  Department and also the Fishermen's Union.  The Board went on record as  being opposed to the r��ise in  ferry rates by the Blapk Ball  Ferries without a public hearing and other boards in the  area affected will b& asked for  their support in having the bill  repealed so that whenever a  rate is raised there will be a  public hearing.  Dr. Playfair, past president,  will be liason officer for greater co-operation between the  boards in thb ��coast area and  it is hoped to strengthen their  usefulness by bringing them  closer together.  Emergency  crew sou  Commissioner Crowhurst at  Tuesday night's Village Commission meeting moved the  B.C. EAectric be urged to have  an emergency truck at the  Gibsons end of the Peninsula  power system to lessen the,  length of time of accidental  power breaks. He said he. had  heard a truck had to come all  the way from Pender Harbour  area following Monday afternoon's break. The motion was  passed. /      .

Mylroie to go to the  meeting while the Village Commission was holding its regular meeting. '  Questions asked were why  the ratepayers selected a night  on which the village commissioners were in session and  * -.why-each ratepayers 'meeting,  was held on the same night the  village commission was in session.  Accounts totalling $1,022.52  were ordered paid of which  $565.17,was for roads, $343.16  for weter, $70 suspense account  $39.19 for street lights and $5  for parks and beaches.  The request of Sechelt Jalopy Club for the use of some  land as a racetrack at the new-  airfield near Wilson Creek was  referred to the air field committee for consideration.  Settlement of the cost of  building the steps and rail at  the Post Office was agreed  upon, the cost not to exceed  $180 and 75 percent of the  amount to be paid by Mrs. Telford.  The Fire Department was  authorized to purchase three  block heaters for fire trucks  at a cost of $28.20.  According to a letter from  the provincial department of  municipal affairs, shops can remain open after 6 p.ni. during  the Christmas rush if the required resolution was passed,  by the village commission.  More floats  at  Madeira  Park  An additional 160 feet of  floats have been installed at  Madeira Park, to relieve congestion. The district has grown  so rapidly that it has been very  difficult to find room to tie up  a boat. The new floats) will  take care of this situation and  make it more convenient for  people having business in Madeira.  Repairs, are also being made  to the wharf at Irvine's Landing and the floats rearranged.  86th BIRTHDAY  Mrs. Anne Wilander of Gibsons, celebrated her 86th birthday on Friday, Nov. 22. Several old friends called on her and  she received many cards and  gifts.  Truckers merge  As a move towards cutting  costs as a result of increased  ferry rates for trucks, Vancouver-Gibsons Freight Lines and  Ed Shaw Transfer have amalgamated and will be known as  I & S Transport Ltd.  The merged freight line will  have its Gibsons heaquarters  and one in North ,Burnaby for  the Vancouver  area. *  /. '*   - V- *-.

One of the bright spots on the Centennial horizon for this  district isi the Elphinstone High School student venture into a  school annual of historical value.  Any such effort should be encouraged because there Is a  great deal of district history now vanishing into a limbo whe*e  it cannot be recalled.  If anyone has pictures of people and spots now changed  the editor-in-chief at the' school would welcome them. Stories!  of early days would be welcome too and the names of those sen-  dor citizens over 90 years old are sought.  Above all the students want public support for purchase  of these books which will be of value in future days. It costs'  money to publish a book and some centennial money should be  available.  So far, beyond what the Gibsons distirct Centennial committee has done towards establishment of a sports and fair  ground field there is nothing else of a Centennial nature except  the effort being put forward by the students.  People of this district should not hesitate in signifying  whether they want a copy. The cost will not be great but the  value will far exceed the cost.  Open your hearts and purses for this venture. We glibly  talk of moves towards keeping the young mind occupied. Here  is a chance for everyone to contribute and raise the stature of  Elphinstone High school and its students to a new high. It is a  worthwhile project so get behind it and help the young people  ���of this district who are really trying to help themselves and unselfishly, the district.  Letters to the editor  A PLEA  To   The   Woman   Who   Killed  .My Pup:  I have written this letter to  remind you of the other morning when you so quickly and  completely, destroyed a life.  True, it was only a dog. Just  another mutt who was in your  way and you were in a hurry.  He was something special to  us who loved him though. We  only had him a couple of  months, but he brightened our  home in such a way I can't  explain. He. was our "match"  so to'speak, destined to show  its light only briefly, then to  die forever. So you see, you  not only killed our dog, you  killed a living part of us.  You said you were sorry,  but you were sorry too late!  You were in a hurry so you  were going too fast. Don't de-  "ny it, no matter what the  speedometer read you were  ���going too fast. Think back,  there were a lot of children on  that corner, weren't there?  What if one of them had given another a playful pus��? Or  if one had run in front of the  car? You were just lucky it  was our dog instead of a child.  Maybe next time you won't be  so lucky!! !  It is a pity there are .people  like you on the highways.  Through not knowing how to  drive according to the rule-  book, you endanger lives, be  they human or and m.a 1.  Through careless, yes, careless driving, you turn your  car into a weapon, an instrument of death, instead of the  pleasure vehicle it was intended to be.  You  say he shouldn't have  been on the road ��� he should  not have been either. He was  let out of the house for a few  minutes  for   a   run.   He   was  trained not to go on the road,  but there were children who1  called him, other- dogs to romp  with,' so he yielded to tempta- ���  tion.  He started to  cross the  road,   loving   everyone,   then  you killed him. I only hope you  learned this time because you  may not be so lucky again.  An anima lover.  publicity officer.  To us, our work in raising  funds with which to purchase  equipment for our hospital, is  most important, and we feel  it is .a distinct advantage to  have the name of the hospital  auxiliary before the public as  often as possible. They say it  pays to advertise!  Therefore, we wish to thank  you sincerely for your co-operation. ��  Mrs. Elsa D. Warden,  Secretary.  OFFER THANKS  Editor: At the November  meeting of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary, I was requested to  write to you to express our  appreciation of your help by  publishing items sent in by our  JOINS   PROTEST  Etditor: May I join the voices  which are protesting the increase in truck rates announced by the Ferry people?  I have a cabin at Roberts  Creek, so increased truck charges will affect my cost-of-living  there. In addition, I burn every  time I cross.the Sound. I have  a small car with a 7 foot wheel  base, and yet I pay as much  as is charged for one of the  juke boxes on wheels which  takes up at least twice the  space. ' <������  This resentment is not appeased,- either, by the shorter  ferry, route now operating.  This new route adds insult to  injury. It saves the ferry company at least ten minutes on.  each trip, which enables more  trips to be made for the same  wages paid, bigger take at the  snack bar, and a 14% saving  .in fuel burned. And do passengers or motorists benefit any?  Not on your life; it's just the  opposite. We still have to go  two-and-a-half miles to Gibsons  Wharf, along a very poor road  for heavy traffic, to get tp the  place we originally landed at  to start our journey.  1'he Ferry Co. may have the  automoble and passenger traffic sewn up, but there is an out  for the truckers.. That is, the  forming of a trucking co-operative, which would operate to  handle the needs of its members only. The co-op mjight  pick up a couple of landing  barges, which do not require"  a large crew and which do not  require construction of wharves or piers" for discharging  purposes. A ramp on the beach  is sufficient.  Officers of the B.C. Co-operative association would doubtless be pleased to assist in the  organization of the co-operative, and the Credit Unions  would probably be able to do  the initial financing.  H.G. Hunt.

He founded Fort Churchill and ijater  perished with an expedition of  northern discovery. A Tgover-  noi��in*-chJLef of HhAZ HludSon's  Bay Company posts in Hudson  Bay, he traded with the^Indi-  ans of York Factory and Fort  Churchill in 1717- He returned  to England the next year and  was placed in command of an  expedition "to find out the  Streight of, Anian, in order to  discover gold and other^ valuable commodities, to the northward." The expedition miscarried, and Knight and his crews  perished on Marble Island in  Hudson Bay. .!.";  For what is the community of  Glammis, Ont., noted?  This hamlet is noted for the  large number of ministers and  teachers who have gone out  from its two churches ��� Presbyterian and Baptist. Records  show that as early as 1880 its  Presbyterian church, a; log  building seating 350. was holding Sunday services and Thursday prayer meetings in both  English and Gaelic.  ".  Who wrote ihe poem, "Leetle  Baieese"? ���"     _ i  "Leetle Bateese", one.of a  series of very popular poems in  French Canadian dialect,; was  written by William Henry  Drummond, a physician who  practised in both rural Quebec and Montreal. .He wasi'born  in Ireland and studied at"Montreal High School and Bishop's  College, Lennoxville, where  he received his M.D. in 1883.  His best-known volume of dialect verse, The Habitant,'" was  published in 1897 and others  followed. Drummond had a  great affection for the habitant; his poems'are bothlium- .  orous and pathetic ���-They enjoyed wide popularity... and'  helped to create a better under-  standnig between French and  English Canadians. ���  When was the first Girl Guides  company, formed.in Canada?  The Girl' Guide movement  came to Canada in 1910, the  year after its formation in England, when a company was  formed in St. Catherines, Ont.  Within a few years, there were  companies from coast to coast.  Canada has been a full member of the World Association  since 1928, National headquarters are in Toronto.  Heavy budget  for Arthritics  Almost one-half million dollars will be spent on services for  arthritics during the coming:  year. The B. C. Division of the  Canadian Arthritis and1 Rheumatism Society recently approved  a budget of $426,760 for 1958.  Comparative figures show thei  expansion of CARS in the nine  years since its inception in TB. C.  The division was incorporated in  1948 and in March 1949 treatment services for arthritics were  Set up.

HIGH HONOR  A Canadian delegate to the  International Red Cross conference, -now being held in New*  Delhi, India, has been highly  honored by the supreme governing body of the Red' Cross. John  A. MacAulay, Q. C, of Winnipeg,  was chosen to serve as chairman  of the International Humanitarian Law commission. Mr. Mac-  '-' Aulay is a prominent barrister  and a former chairman of central council of the Canadian Red  Cross Society. He is highly re^  spected in the Red Cross world  for his outstanding work as chairman of the 18th International  Red Cross Conference in Toronto in 1952.  An estimated 1,000,000 Cana-:  dian playgrs'are engaged in five-  pin bowling as this truly natiy<e  Canadian game gets into full  swing oh some 7,000 alleys  across the country.  The new Encyclopedia ^-Cana*-  diana credits Thomas J. Ryan, ���  of the Toronto Bowling Club,  with creating the game in 1909  to satisfy the club's desire for  a faster, >less strenuous: vgame  than tenpins. Neither duckpins  nor candlepins had.-'found "favor  with- the elubT   . ;  v  He made the pins smaller, cut  their number in half, and substituted a smaller ball.' The faster and lighter game was approved quickly and in 1910 the first'  fivepin league was organized.  Duckpins and candlepins enjoy  regional popularity and the game  of tenpins has 'many thousands  of enthusiastic players in Canada, but their popularity does  not approach that.of fivepins.  The popularity of fivepins increased rapidly after rubber.  bands were placed around, the  wooden pins. The rubber deadened the force of the bowling  iball's blow and made it easier  for a player to make a strike.  The first recorded game having a score of over 400 was bowl- t  ed in 1918 by Alfred Scrubb, a  f a mous long-distance ynlnher  then living hi Canada^T In .1921  Bill Brpirifield scoredy45j) ih the  first-inowh perfect g��fn&-  The Canadian Rowlihl Association was formed in 19��^Llt set  specifications   for   alleyTi^igths-  and    widths;     size,  weight and  bind of wood ioj-j&n&ysize ofi  rubber bands; size _y^T weight  of: balls, and so forthXrXx      ..

The big man is constantly looking for the good in others. He  believes in the decency of people and he is what. Dr. Frank  Crane calls: "A good over-'  looker." He knows there is  more good than bad in people  and believes in the truth expressed by Robbie Burns:  "What's done we partly may  compute,  But know not what's resisted."  After the First World War,  a German soldier named Bern-'  hard Diefoold, wrote a book  describing . some scenes y of  which he had been an eyewitness.

'  ��^YT^3__*iE^Jftga^^^^a_^7ri^3JB^,*,  BIG-HEARTED PEOPLE  Over 50 years ago, two men  who loomed large in the  world's thinking were the Boer  leaders, Paul Kruger and General Joubert. President Kruger  would tolerate no/criticsm. He  brought his heatfy fists down  on the Speaker's table and his  word was law. Joubert was a  different type and even his enemies respected him. Kruger  sensed, this feeling and was insanely jealous of the General.  One uay they were together  in the president's library and  Kruger, who was short and  stocky, was Vainly trying to  reach a book. Joubert, well  over six feet, said: "Let me  get you the book, I am bigger  than you." It was an unfortunate remark. "You are not  bigger than I, you are just  longer," snarled Kruger. As a  matter of fact Joubert was a  bigger man, -physically and  mentally, but the ^distinction  Kruger made was interesting.  Generally, when we talk of  big men and little men we are  Printed Pattern  speaking of something other  than physical size. We are  thinking of character qualities.  A big man is one who scorns  to do mean and contemptable  things*. He does not carry  around resentments and petty  X jealousies. We say. "He is too  T big, for that."  ��� The biographer of the Dan-  X ish artist, Dore, said -he could  T never    hear    another     artist  nraised   without  being   swept  by jealousy. On the other hand  wnen    the'' Belgian   scientist,  Maurice  Maeterlick, was ,s>ug- '  gezted for membershp  in the  French   Academy  ���  a   very  ; great honor ��� he wrote declin-  ;  ing it and suggesting another  T scientist,  whom, he said,  was  T more; worthy of it. v  (      A big man rises above jeal-  > ousy.    He   does not  spoil   his  I own life and that of other peo-  ��� pie by nursing imaginary grie-  i nances. He ;knows that is the ���  one sure way to make them  grow, until they are seen out  j of all proportion. The negro ed-,  ucator, Booker T- Washington  has a sound philosophy of life.  Ii.:- said: "I . resolved that I ,  would permit ho man to narrow and degrade my soul by  making me hate him."  Another characteristic of the  big man is that he is not a  mere creature of circumstances  This is an age of specialization  ���'��� when men know more and  more about less and less. A  traveller in Britain says he  once saw this short'epitaph on"  a tombstone: "He was born ��� a  man and died a grocer." Similar epitaphs might find a place  on other tombstones, for whenever a man allows his job to  ��� crowd out other interests he  shrivels up no matter how successful he appears to be.  ��� The big man finds time ���  ��� makes time ���-'for his family  I    \     j SIZE:  /      * ;  * 12-5  hf  SIZES  9049    '    y * x 12-20  **���  It's new!
