Next Squarenader dance Saturday in the Anglican Parish  hall will be a Hallowe'en party  with a good supply of eats and  fun available.  Beginner classes are progressing and it was arranged that  the free night's cover Thursday,  Nov. 2 and 9 so those desiring  to take up square dancing can  get to know what it is all about  by attending these evenings at  the Anglican church hall.  The. Nov. 18 function has  been postponed so that members can attend Port Mellon's  Heeze and Sneeze i party with  Bud Blatchford being the caller.  Two squares were on the  floor at the Oct. 21 meeting  with Harry Robertson as caller. Visitors included Jim and  Mary Wardrop from Penticton  and Gordie ; and ; Lil McCourt  from Sechelt.,  To obtain a siren and light  flasher. On the new fire department truck .Gibsons council arranged that the present siren  be exchanged along with an expense increase  of $150  so that  the combination siren-flasher  can be obtained.  A survey will be made to  .-post the north boundary of .  Kinsmen Municipal park property as this is the only line  that is not certain.  Contact will be made with  one businessman operating  two businesses to inform him  that his first half-year business  licenses have not been paid.  Building permits were issued  to Walter McGown for a $500  boathouse, Dave Pinckney for  $1,000 dwelling alterations, W.  H. Kent,for a $500 carport and  R. A. Winegarden for a $800,  carport.  Councillor Goddard reporting  on the Centennial project at  the park informed council that  the provincial and federal Centennial committee had approved the project.  A reply from Hon. Phil Gaglardi to a council letter concerning ferry traffic in Langdale  area, explained that the parking area at the terminal is being extended and should ease  the pressure.  The problem of rain water  flowing down the Hammond  driveway off Gower Point Rd.  near the post office was turned  over to the public works superintendent for a check.  To clean up the municipal hall  unfinished outside paint job,  council has ordered the necessary work on the front of the  building be done on an hourly  basis when the weather is suitable. This will satisfy until the  job can be completed next summer.  Councillor Wally Peterson, a  member of the airport management committee has $1694 on  hand. He advised that $1,000 be  paid on a Bank of Montreal  $2500 loan. It was also arranged  that future signing officers for  the airport will be*the chairman  and clerk of Gibsons or Sechelt  council, according to where the  airport committee chairman resides.

Isabel Dawson, provincial min-.  ister without portfolio for the  early part of November allows  the minister to be on the Sunshine Coast Monday, Tuesday  and Wednesday, Nov. 13, 14 and  15. On Nov. 14 she will attend  a Pender Harbour Chamber of  Commerce  meeting.  Record October rain  Gibsons area recorded the heaviest rainfall so far recorded  for the month of October according to Dick Kennett, Mr. Weatherman for Gibsons district.  The record shows that 14.87 inches fell during the month. The  nearest to that occurred in February 1961 when 13.91 inches was  recorded.  The October rains almost equalled one quarter of a year's total rainfall which averages about 56 inches a year.  leaving the ferry terminal towards Port Mellon. A Standard  Oil truck driven by Gerald MacDonald oi Sechelt was coming  downhill.  On turning the corner the oil  truck started fishtailing, according to the police report and  continuing downhill, sideswiped  a car driven by Allan Sobins  of Sechelt. His four passengers  were lucky. One received a minor leg contusion. The driver  suffered a cut lip.  The truck continued on, finishing up in the ditch on its  side and facing the opposite  direction to which it was travelling. The driver, shaken up,  emerged uninjured. RCMP report a charge is pending.  New pictures  for display  Mrs. I. St. Denis, whose paintings will be featured at the Arts  Council Gallery in Sechelt for  the next two weeks has been a  part-time resident of Roberts  Creek for 11 years. The other  part of her life was spent in a  lagging camp at Gran Bay near  Zeballos on the West Coast of  Vancouver Island.  Mrs. St. Denis is not primarily a landscape painter and unlike many local artists does not  find inspiration in local scenery. She prefers a group of  buildings, an old church or a  picturesque bridge, and looks  forward to the day when she  can go to Europe to paint.  Describing herself as a natural  painter, with no formal instruction who is developing techniques and a style of her own,  Mrs. St. Denis likes to work on  a large canvas.  The pictures on display will  include traditional old English  scenes, flower compositions and  modern expressions.  The paintings will be displayed until November 11 and will  be followed in the last half of  the month by paintings of Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour  area artists. The Gallery is  open Wednesday, Thursday and  Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  The Roberts Creek school Parents Auxiliary meeting will take  place on Nov. 7, Tuesday, rather than Monday, being a  more popular night.  Mrs. Muriel Ball will speak  on school law, using the manual of School Law as a guide.  This book adequately covers every particular of this important  -u'-j.ect. There will be a question period which should prove  interesting.      .     --:.:.'   : '.. "  ��i��iuuHuunuiui��Mmuuuuuu��nuuuuuuuuttunuu>u\in��m  2 highway  anger�� us  A stolen dangerous type of rocket gun is being sought by the  Royal Canadian Mounted Police. It was stolen October 23 from a  shed used by Hume and Rumble employeeis.  The gun enables them to fire lines across ravines and other  inaccessible areas. It could be a dangerous weapon in the hands  of people not knowing its power. Three cartridges belonging to the  gun were also stolen along with a tool box.  The shed in which this material was stored was behind the  former Hilltop Building Supply building which is now the Labor  Ball:  Another break-in reported was the breaking into Walt Nygren's  premises at the head of Gibsons wharf Saturday night or Sunday  morning. Ten dollars in silver was taken. The culprits left by the  rear door. -7  Congregations of St. Bartholomew's, and : St.. Aidan's Anglican churches welcomed the induction of Frederick Ross Gibson to the^office jof Parochial  -lay reader-by ^  New Westminster    diocese    at  St. Bartholomew's church Sunday morning. Vicar J. Henry-  Kelly assisted in the service.  It is expected this apointment  \ wiir further extend the work of  the ^parish and ���;��� ease the Joad  now being carried -by Padre  Kelly.     :   " '  $70,000 in scholarships  The quarterly meeting of the  Elphinstone Royal Canadian  Legion zone including Powell  River, Texada Island, Pender  Harlbor, Sechelt, Roberts Creek  and Gibsons branches went into session Saturday at Gibsons  Legion Hall, after a luncheon  served by the Ladies auxilliary.  J. R. Wilson, Gibsons branch  president     welcomed members  and   then   turned   the   meeting  over to Zone Commander Bert  Clarkson,    Texada    Island.  At  the conclusion of business, Mr.  Dayid  Hunter,   Vancouver   Pacific command "president,    addressed   the   members, on   the  importance     of     taking  great  care in the selection of an executive     committee.     He  also  pointed   out   the  value   of   the  Legion to all members and the  need of reading  their publication    thoroughly.     He outlined  the Legion's Centenary project,  the raising of a million dollar  fund,     the     income   of  which  would be used to further carry  on the work of the Legion in  the years to come with particular reference to lending assistance to the children of needy  veterans so that they may enjoy the same educational advantages as  other  children.  At present he stated, between  60 and 70 thousand dollars is  distributed annually in scholarships and bursaries by Pacific  Command and the various Legion branches throughout the  province.  For the Remembrance Day  service Nov. 11 members of  Gibsons branch will assemble  at 10 a.m. Saturday to attend  a memorial service in the Legion Hall, Rev. J. Henry Kelly,  Padre conducting. An invitation has been extended to the  Scouts, Guides, Brownies and  Cubs to attend the service  which is also open to the public. At the close of the meeting  a two-minute silence was observed in memory of fallen  comrades.  Election time looms  December is the time for elections of representatives to  serve on village councils, regional district boards and school  boards. To create interest in  these responsibilities the Gibsons Parent-Teacher association  has asked Mr. Peter Wilson,  secretary-treasurer to the school  board to speak on the duties of  a school trustee.  If you are a little hazy as to  what to expect of the school  boardj just what is their field  of reference and who can serve  the community in this capacity  this talk and subsequent discussion should clear up popular misconceptions.  The method of voting for  school trustees has recently  been brought into line with  other civic officials. This year  trustees   representing   Gibsons  and the area from Port Mellon  to Roberts Creek will vacate  their seats on the board. Thejr  are Mr. D. Douglas, Mrs. C-  Fisher, Mr. J. Horvath (chairman) and Mrs. P. Volen and  are eligible for re-election.  The meeting will be held on  Monday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. in  room 203 at Elphinstone school  and everyone is welcome to attend.  ^iiiuuiiiiunuur.iiiuiuiuiiuiniuiniuimiiHimiutnminDiuiUB  CHRISTMAS  BAZAAR  St. Bartholomew's Anglican  Church Women's Christmas bazaar will be held Saturday, Nov.  4 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Gibsons  Elementary school activity hall.

In aid of school trustees  Gibsons Parent-Teacher association has asked the school board  secretary-treasurer, Mr. Peter Wilson, to inform the PTA at its  meeting Monday night of the duties of a school trustee. This will  be an interesting meeting but in order to get across the relative  position of the school trustee in the field of ipublic education there  are a few background facts which should accompany such a dissertation. '  ;He could explain that the school trustees represent a board of  directors responsible for ax $3,000,000 asset working with a budget  now of more than $1;500,000 annually. The employees involved in  this $3,000,000 asset, representing some 15, or more buildings, number 185, representing 110 teachers, 69 in non-teaching jobs and six  of a school board staff.  Mr. Wilson could also point out that the size of the organization he represents is second only to the Canadian Forest Products  pulp mill at Port Mellon which employs more than 400 individuals  with a payroll over a year in the millions.  He could also stress the point that school trustees while holding one or two board meetings a month are involved in many,  many meetings between board sessions. These meetings are departmentalized, such as policy, transportation, finance, building,  education, wage negotiations and others; For this the trustees are  rewarded(?) with a honorarium of $300 a year. School board meetings starting around 7:30 p.m. sometimes last until midnight or  later according to the volume of discussion each subject requires.  There are not too many businesses with assets of $3,000,000, a  budget of $1,500,000 annually and a staff of 185 which operates its  general business with a staff of six. This staff takes care of all  the purchasing for the 14 schools, a considerable job in itself. It  also sends out something like 250 cheques a month which have to  be processed through an accounting department. Accompanying  this is the welter of minute to minute affairs that crop up by phone,  letter or personal appearance, including maintenance and teacher  problems. .7.7        .;^.; ���   ;  Trustees are cognizant of. all this as; it is their responsibility  to see that the affairs of the school district are run as smoothly as  they can be made to run. So Mr. Wilsn in your approach to the  duties of school trustees you should have plenty of information to  passon to PTA participants. Here's hoping you have all the answers to questions that might arise.  Remembrance Day  More than 200,000 Canadians lie buried in graves in 70 different countries, mostly in Europe but many in Asia and even Brazil.  When you are asked to wear a Poppy on November 3-4 this year,  you will be acknowledging our debt to those who gave their lives  to protect our way of life and our basic civic dignity.  Your contributions provide "quick help for those veterans who  live but can no longer compete, due to injuries or other problems.  Any veteran is entitled to ask for this help which the Royal Canadian Legion is dedicated to administer.  As all help is voluntary, only the minimum cost of poppies and  administration, is deducted from your contribution. This year a  portion of the money collected will go to the needs of veterans  and their dependents in the emerging nations, also towards the  building of senior citizens housing.  Remembrance week will end at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month at ceremonies to be held at Cenotaphs around the world.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons board of trade program includes the formation of  a district water board, construction of the road ��� to Port  Mellon and establishment jf a  police  office in  Gibsons.  Sechelt PTA is seeking assistance from other organizations  in the area to help in the drive  for a community hall.  The Gospel ship Sky Pilot  dropped in to Secret Cove for a  couple of days visit with the  Jorgensons.  C. P. Ballentine's business  men's weekly dinner meeting  at the Merry Ern Cafe in Gibsons have resumed for the winter months.  A Hallowe'en party at the  school was supported by local  merchants. School Princijpal A.  S. Trueman supervised the entertainment.  gasbord at Madeira Park.  A comprehensive survey of  telephone needs for the next 20  years has been started by B.C.  Telephones for the Sunshine  Coast.  Letters were increasing asking for the municipal council to  pass a herd law to keep cows  off streets and out of private  gardens.  A giant fireworks display was  held on Sechelt wharf Hallowe'en night by Sechelt's Kinsmen club.  10 YEARS AGO  The desire to form a district  board of trade was brought forward at the Pender Harbour  Board  of Trade  annual  smor-  By   JACK  DAVIS. -M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  Parliament is a very different place this fall. Most - of the  faces are the same, (but there '.  is a different air about the  place. The official opposition'is  no longer girding, daily, for  the kill. And the government:  side confidently expects to stay  in power until 1969 at the very  least.  The current parliamentary:  crisis, in other words, is a  figment of the press gallery's  imagination. Certainly it isn?t  in the minds of M.P.'s. They  are shifting their attention to  longer term issues. In their  speeches they are looking  ahead into the 1970's. Certainly they are dealing, much  more, in terms of policy rather  than personalities.  Not that the attendance in  the house of commons has been  all that good. During the first  few days of the fall sitting  Prime Minister Pearson cut a  lonely figure on ithe government's front bench. External  Affairs Minister Paul Martin  was away at the United Nations in New York. Finance  Minister Sharp was attending  a meeting of the world bank  in Rio de Janeiro. Newly appointed Defence Minister Ca-,  dieux was on his way to Cyprus.  And Trade Minister Winters  was out touring the country  telling Canadian industry what  to expect as a result of the i  Kennedy Round of cuts in the  Canadian tariff. --  Appearances, of course, can  be deceiving. When the first  vote was called the Liberals  turned out in droves. Front  benchers and back-benchers  alike swarmed into their places  from behind the curtains. The  result was a decisive defeat  for the combined forces of the  opposition. Even though the  NDP, the Creditiste and the  Social Credit Members joined  with the Conservatives their  vote of censure on the government's handling of our housing .'.'  situation lost with more than-^  20 votes  to spare..'' ���������^J  Why was this?     Why,     with \  newly      elected      Conservative  Leader Bob     Stanfield    gazing  down  from  the  opposition  gal  lery, did * the Conservatives  only manage to turn out 71 of  their 94 members? Why the  great gaps in the Tory Jbench-  ers? Surely the impetus given  to the Conservative party as a  result of their recent leadership convention in Toronto  would have been enough to ensure a first class turn out when  the division bells began to ring  again in Ottawa.  The answer, perhaps, is that  Mr. Stanfield needs more  time. He needs to reorganize  the Conservative party from,  the grass roots up. And he  need's time to make new policies ��� policies which are true-  ly Conservative /��� not the mixture of welfare'statism and ad  hockery which characterized  the Diefenbaker years.  But what did the Conservative M.P.s have to say about  housing? They said that the  government' should borrow  more money and lend it out  at lower interest rates. They  would sub'sidize7 ordinary housing. And they would launch a  massive government program  of construction, to look after  people in the lower income  groups.  But a massive program of  public housing,- a program relying more on government and  less on private enterprise, a  program involving higher taxation doesn't sound like a Conservative program at all. Perhaps this is why the Tories  got so much support from the  NDP. And, perhaps it is why  a good many Conservative M.  P.s were so hard 'to find when  they were asked to vote against  the Liberal government's latest  measurers to draw more private funds into home construction in this country.

Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  Several readers have written  that they are toeing sued for  a divorce and want to know  how they can fight such legal  proceedings.  The usual ground for a divorce is adultery. If the defendant (the person sued) has  committed adultry, the claim  may still be contested or defended by raising one or more  of eight bars which our law  recognizes. The law may bar  or forbid a divorce in these  cases. There are two types of  bars, absolute and discretionary  An obsolute bar is one that, if  successfully proved, will cause  the judge to refuse the divorce  without further consideration  on his part. A discretionary  bar is one that, if successfully  proved, will cause the judge  to exercise his Vliscretion���that  is, he may or may not grant"  the divorce.  The absolute bars are collusion, connivance, or condonation. Collusion is an agreement  by the parties that the defendant would commit, or appear  to commit adultery for the purpose of obtaining a divorce.  Connivance consists of the  plaintiff giving his (or her)  permission to the defendant to  POINT  OF LAW  bf ~Sr j-'racticintf oUawyr  commit adultery. Condonation  is the legal forgiveness of the  ; act of adultery and usually  consists of the husband and  wife resuming their married  > life together.  The discretionary bars are:  Adultery by the plaintiff (the  person suing), cruelty by the  plaintiff against the defendant,  desertion of the defendant by  the plaintiff, delay by the plaintiff in the bringing of the action, or conduct by the plaintiff such as conduced (that is,  caused or contributed to) the  adultery  of  the   defendant.  The raising of the;/discretion-.  ' ary bars may or may not be  successful depending on all the  circumstances of the case. The  law is quite complicated on  this subject and a lawyer  should be consulted for problems.  Even if both parties want a  divorce, the government may  intervene where there has been  collusion. The intervening party  who has a right to be joined  in the action as such is called  the Queen's proctor and this  official (actually the atteorney-  general) will appoint a lawyer  to appear at the trial and call  evidence to show that the evidence is fraudulent or manufactured.  If the defendant denies that  he has committed adultery, it  is, of course, not necessary to  raise any of the bars. The  judge will rule on whether or  not the act of adultery took  place after hearing all the evidence of all the witnesses for  both sides.  BOOK ABOUT B.C.

Ross Gibson, recently retired from the RCMP  brought his family to live in  Gibsons. During his years with  the force, Mr. and Mrs. Gibson  spent seven years in the eastern  Arctic.  During the 1950s Canada's  Arctic islands became. strategically important, eyed. by Russia,  the U.S. and Denmark. It was  decided by the Canadian government that the Arctic Archipelago, up to that time uninhabited, should be renamed the  Queen Elizabeth Islands and a  Canadian community established. .���:'-���  Mr. iGibson who was then  stationed at Port Harrison on  the eastern shores of Hudson's  Bay, some 200 miles north of  the tree line, took 25 Eskimo  volunteers to create a community at Resolute Bay on Cornwal-  lis Island.  Mrs. Gibson who was public  health nurse for the Port Harrison area, covering the vast distances by dog sled or small boat  found it a very busy time. She  took in with her a supply of  wool intending to knit socks in  her spare time and found the  only knitting she did was on the  ice *- breaker going in. Mr. and  Mrs. Gibson have beautiful pictures , of the many wild flowers  Which brighten the brief Arctic  summer, so the prize chrysanthemum at the Gibsons Garden  club show in their first year,  brought them much pleasure.  Mr. Gibson, a recognized  authority on the Arctic and  Eastern Eskimos and whose exr  ploits are recorded in Men Against the Frozen North by Ritchie Calder, will show some of  their collection of color slides  and photographs and tell of their  experiences in Canada's vast  northland in three centres spon  sored by the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council. Also displayed  will be Eskimo carvings  . These talks will be given in  Pender Harbour on Nov. 2 at  8 p.m. in the Secondary School  auditorium; in Sechelt on Nov.  3 at 8 p.m. in the Elementary  school hall and on Saturday,  Nov. 4 at Elphinstone Secondary School Auditorium in Gibsons. Admission will be $1.25  for adults and 75c for students  and O.A.P. with a 25c reduction  for all members of the Arts  Council.  Halfmoon Bay  (By DOROTHY J.

It was the forerunner of the  present network of some 6,000  offices of the chartered banks,  more ��� than 1,000 of them B Of  M branches.  Equally important to the development of the country as a  whole was the B of M's immediate provision of banknotes  ��� Canada's first real money���  when it opened for business in  1817. In the months before, engraving of the printing plates  had been one of the urgent  matters arranged for the opening. It also provided the first  Canadian coinage, when if introduced "bank tokens" in 1836.  Gibsons branch of the B of M  was established on December  9, 1946, and for a time operated  under the direction of the  bank's Carrall and Hastings  branch in Vancouver.  At the outset, the office was  located in a building which  had formerly been a garage.  The staff came from Vancouver  by "sea-bus," a small passenger launch, and in Winter there  were times when bad weather  made it impossible for them to  return, and they were accommodated by local residents.

Appl  however   is   the   correct   ITA  spelling. ITA stands for Initial  Teaching   Alphabet,   a   system  devised by Sir John Pitman to  simplify  the  teaching  of reading.  Mrs.   Peterson   who  is  start-  .   ing her fourth year using ITA  at Roberts Creek school was to  have been the principal speaker,  at Monday's PTA meeting, but  Mrs. H. Kwasney and Mrs. M.  Neilson were happy to explain  the method in her absence as  ITA is being started this year  at   Gibsons   and   already   they  are enthusiastic about the children's   progress   (compared   to  previous   experience   with   conventional methods.  The 44 letter alphabet at first  glance, looks complicated to  adults familiar with traditional  script, but as Mrs. Kwasney  pointed out most of the additional letters are similar to traditional combinations of letters.  The advantage of ITA is that  each symbol consistently represents  the  same  sound so that  BAZAAR  SUCCESS  In spite of a wet day the annual Fall Bazaar of St Aidan's  AOW proved as enjoyable as it  was successful financially. The  stalls, particularly the home  cooking, were well patronized.  Many residents took the opportunity to meet old friends.  Mrs. R. Eades in opening the  ' event   told   of   the   interesting  growth of the AOW in Roberts  Creek area.  FINED $100  Edward Belrose, arrested on  a warrant at Powell River,  charged with driving while his  license was under suspension,  was fined $100 and costs in Gibsons magistrate's court.     -  iimrainmMwpnnHinnunmmimnnnnHinHaMmn....i  You can phone your classified  ads to the Coast News at 886-  2622 up to 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoons.  luwuuHiHniuunHWHiHuminitoiwiimirawHHHumnmmtmv  the child is able to relate the  spoken to the written word. A  child learning to read in the  usual way is faced with a bewildering array of - possibilities.  The sound oo as in moo for example can be written over a  dozen different ways, ruby,  through, grew, shoe and true.  As an additional simplification  no capitalization is used in ITA  readers until the seventh book  by which time, towards the (middle of the year the child is making a translation to normal  script.  Mrs. Neilson says the children  realize they are using a tool  and many of them are already  of their own accord beginning  to make the transition to what  they call grown up writing.

Mrs. Peterson had taken the  trouble to send the text of her  talk and also emphasized that  children when not hampered. by  adult prejudices take things in  their stride and make the transition in- their own time during  the year. - ..:  Parents were impressed by  the improved content of the  readers and the number usually  covered in the year, and with  the obvious enthusiasm of the  teachers it was wondered why  ITA is only being used in these  two schools.  A cheque for $100 was given  to Mr. Cooper for the improvement of the acoustics in the  elementary school gymnasium.  This money was raised at the  spring carnival. and was returned to the PTA following the  collapse of the Centennial pool  project. The PTA hopes the mon  ey can be used as soon as possible either to finance suggestions already in hand or to get  expert acoustical advice.  The PTA will assist Mr. J.  C. Bell, the district librarian,  with a book display to be held  in the Gibsons Elementary  school gymnasium on Oct. 27.  A workshop on leadership and  public relations is being arranged for PTA and others interested on -November 21.  John A. Crerar, Port Mellon  chemist, recently undertook an  analytical project in his off-  hours using lab facilities at  Port Mellon. The project was  an investigation into testing of  water by atomic absorption. A  number of laboratories participated in the project which was  set up by a committee of the  American Society for Testing  Materials. The committee had  met at a convention of the society which John attended in  New Orleans, Louisiana, during  January, this year.  Early this summer John completed his analytical investigation and submitted his report  to     society     headquarters     in  i-_HH_H_H_______________________________l  Philadelphia. When/ all reports  from' the participating laboratories ' were in, their findings  were evaluated and the Port  Mellon chemist's report was  considered to be the best. Most  of the credit for this success  is given to John's own abilities  because the Port Mellon laboratory, by the nature of its. day-  to-day work requirements, is  not equipped with the sophisticated equipment available to  other chemists who undertook  the same project.  Present indications are that  the scope of this research will  be widened at a later date, and  John looks forward to doing  further work in this field.
