The report implements 121  amendments to the original 185  clauses in the School act, rang-  ;.ing from minor word revision  to entirely new clauses. The  total number of school boards  in the province has been reduced from 650 to 74, of which  the newly-created Sechelt large  rural school district is one. It:  is composed Of the former districts of Irvine's Landing,  Kleindale, Silver Sands, Half  Moon Bay, Egmont, Sechelt  United ( Howe Sound United,  ���! Port Mellon, and Bowen Island.  For taxation purposes Gambier, Keats; Paisely and the  other West Howe Sound islands  will also be included. On Friday, April 26, a meeting of  school boards and of representatives from those schools having no boards are to meet at the  Howe Sound United school to  appoint a new school board of  seven to assume office for the  Sechelt district until December.  Of interest to ratepayers are  the facts that provincial grants  of from. 13 to 20 dollars per  pupil will be made for general  expenses, and that the local  mill rate will almost certainly  be considerably reduced.

PENDER   HARBOUR  Mrs. Little, Correspondent  SECHELT WEST  By   Margaret   Allan  THE   EASTER   Church   parade  here on Sunday morning turned, into a firefightinig squad as  friends     and    neighbors    tried  vainly to save the home of John  Hblden, 81 year old pioneer of  Roberts- Creek.    Despite    their  efforts it was completely^ radd.  ;    Just   twoJdoors   away' from  St. Aidan's Church on the Hall  road^ the house has been Mr.  3|oidPn's home for the past 18  years and recently he brought  Ms bride to livethere.  Most of the furnishings were  saved but the lack of water and  firefightihg equipment; made it  impossible to saveithe housey  Thefire started in thei chimney  and quicklyspreadi through the  frame building. The house was  covered by^insura^c0.  --The: /Misses: Shir_e# Naud and  Mary-Anne tfacbbseii are; spending the holiday with Shirley's  ^andmother, inyl^w We^nain-  ster'  , . zJy'-z .':  Spring is here all right, with  the chirp of the baby chicks,  and the incubator going. The  daffodils blooming, and everything turning green.  My pastoral solitude has been'  disturbed by music .that sounds  like the "Flight of the Bumble  Bee". On investigating I find  it is three young men, with a  Marlene Dei+rich (musical saw).  They certainly must be a boon  to loggers after these other atrocities that work one hour,  and then they curse the other  seven.  They are on what is known  as the Russian's place. I hope  they will have good luck.  We are certainly fortunate to  be in a land with so much fuel.  How the people in Europe  would appreciate what we  grumble   about.  ���   *    *    *    -  The Pollock Bros, are logging at Porpoise Bay now.

A MISCELLANEOUS shower  in honor of Mrs. Martin Wray  Pender Harbour's only English  war bride was held at the home  of Mrs. A. R. Dingman by the  Ladies Auxiliary of the Sft.  Mary's Hospital. The affair was  attended by about 30 local ladies. Tea was poured by Mrs.  Chas. Wray, mother-in-law of  the guest of honor and Mrs. L.  ' Hambly formerly of the R.C.N. -  V.R.  *    *    *  As the co-op movement has  ceased to function it was decid-"  ed to close the books and donate the money^ left over from  the club, to the Hospital finance committee. They co-op committee are very glad to be able  to add money "to help such a  worthy cause as the hospital.  Shipping Notes  FOLLOWING her annual overhaul  the   "Lady   Cynthia"   is  back on her regular run.

Taxi Breaks Up  Cougar-Deer  Encounter  DRAMA of the forests was interrupted  on   Saturday  night  when a taxi  driven by Buster-  Anderson came upon a cougar  in the act of attacking a deer.  It happened near Southview.  Anderson,   a   driver  for  Lome  Fee's taxi, was on a call to LunQ.  and suddenly saw a deer bound  onto the road ahead of him. As  he came within about ten feet,  of the animal, a cougar streaked  from the    roadside    bush    and  pounced on the unfortunate animal.   Anderson was unable to  stop his    car    in time and he  crashed into both animals.   The  deer limped    into    the woods,  while the cougar "just seemed  to   disappear."  Slight damage was done to the  car. ���    ���    x .  i    -    ' - "���   -���"-���.,   ^    v   -      ,  uonquer Cancer  Campaign Begins  THE Conquer Cancer campaign  , has begun in different centers  all over the province and unusual interest, is being accorded  this first all-out educational and  fund-raising  campaign.  The importance of a succes-  ful campaign cannot be too  strongly stressed as cancer, No.  2 killer of Canadians, is taking  an" increasingly-greater toll of  victims every year. More Canadians died of cancer last year  than were killed in the war.  Jinxed Ship  To Be Used for  Breakwater  A. SHIP seen in Vancouver harbor by many Powell River  people is going to her grave. She  is the "Melanope", a vessel the  stormy seas could never sink.  Now man will do the job.  Once the proudest and fastest  full-rigged ship, on the Pacific  Ocean, she is shown here as she  made the crossing from the United States to South Africa in  the record time of 72 days. But  misfortune dogged her. Seamen  said that an old women stowaya,  forcibly put ashore at the^start  of her maiden voyage, laid a  witch's curse on the ship. At any  rate, mutiny, suicide and even  murder stained the pages of her  log.  WRECKED IN 1906  Finally wrecked off the Washington Coast in 1906, she still  refused to sink, and a short time  after was stripped of her masts  and converted into a barge.  Since then she has been relegated to the lowly job of coal  tender to Canadian Pacific ships  in Vancouver harbor. e Two  _   THE COAST NEWS, Half moon Bay, B.C..

Page Three  NOW THE LID IS OFF  To Aiii- intents":r"and~. purposes this  is a pfiotograpK of ah ordinary-  telegraph pole, but on its cross arms  are/wires formingtelegraph circuits  - which were part ^Canada's wartime  ! defence and security on the Atlantic  seaboard. Ittwas. one of the best kept  secrets in eastern Canada. The pole  stands just outside of-.a small brick  '/ building, in Moncton,   N.B.,  which  ikhotises--the-*delicate ihsti*fcmieiits for  -������ testing the ^circuits and repeaters, of:  the vitai communication system link-  h ing :tip |he various nayal,V air' aiid,���  army bases that are^lnclude'd in the  Atlantic Command. This secret test-"  ��� ing station was operated and main-  ��� tained by the y Canadian .National  :-, Telegraphs. The yaripus basqs of the  j Atlantic Command were all linked  together by teletype.and immediate  : communication could.be: had between  them and Atlantic Command head-  r quarters in Halifax. Also on this pole.  >" are telegraph cables over which many  ; messages of vital importance to'the  war effort were transmitted; one connected Ottawa direct with London  and 'another provided direct cable  communication between New York  and London.  It might be inferred that a building  and,a pole of this importance would  be heavily'guarded, but psychology  was relied upon to afford protection.  No guards were placed around the  building norx the pole, .nor was there  an^floof^ treated just  as an ordinary office building and the  pole was treated like any other telegraph pole with the result that very  few people even in the city of Moncton knew of the vital importance of  the installation.  In the upper floor above the telegraph testing and control room is the  heart of the Centralized Traffic Control ���.wiii.cli governs the section of the  Canadian National. Railways between Moncton and Truro. This also  was on the secret list.  ; In co-operation with the Canada and Newfoundland Education '���' Association the.

The battle of the Atlantic was on.  German submarines were infesting  the Atlantic, trying to choke off the  vital flow of Allied war supplies going  overseas.  It was a life and. death  struggle.   But the  Allies were not  leaving anything to chance. Even if  the sea battle were lost, essential war  materials would continue to stream  overseas. How this was to be done  was a secret until now.  A secret  shared by government leaders and  high-ranking officers  of the  Allied  Nations with no one but top officers  of the Canadian National Railways,  which was to play a very important  part in the plan.  The planes and  munitions were to be flown across the  roof of the world from the United  States and Canada. Air bases for the  service  were established along the  route  at  Winnipeg,.. The  Pas  and  Churchill in Manitoba; Southampton  Island, in the mouth of the Hudson  Bay; Frobisher Bay, in. Baffin Land;  and Greenland and. Iceland. Tocon-r  struct them, millions of tons of building  materials  and, equipment and  foodstuffs to feed the workers on the  multi-million   dollar   project,    and  millions of gallons of fuel and supplies were carried as far as Churchill,  the  most  northerly  point  oh  the  C.N.R.   system,   1,000  miles  from  W__oipeg.   Beyond  Churchill  they  were flown in. Everything was ready.  Fortunately, the battle of the Atlan^^ ;  was won. But the experience gained  in flying the route was^invaluable.

He propounded seven  ques,tions  and then at  tempted to answer each of���  them*  The first question, "What is  our forest wealth?" Mr. Kellogg  answered with the statement  that ?iny Canada we had one and  one-quarter million square  miles of standing timber. One  third of this was readily accessible and this portion accounted  for one third of our national  wealth.  BELONGS TO CROWN  Seventy percent of these resources belonged to the crown,  Mr. Kellogg stated, vin answer  to the question "Who owns this  Wealth?'' "This public ownership creates public responsibility," he said. "We must see to  it that these resources are protected."  4 .Forest-fires, insects and the  pulp: ..and paper industry took  'tHe^'-ob^-jdiryiiiis wealth each  year, stated the -speaker in answer to. the. question "Who taikes  most of this wealth?'' He pointed Out that fully One-third of  the annual "crop" from the forests was destroyed by fire and  by decay.  By the process of manufacture, the pulp and paper industry quadrupled the value of the  annual forest yield, Mr. Kellogg said, answering the question  "who  makes  the  greatest  conservation program. We must  plan the cuts so as to ensure a  maximum re-growth over the  logged area," he concluded.  Preceding Mr. Kellogg's address, a technicolor movie was  shown dealing with the Powell  River company's experiments in  salvaging small logs for pulp-  wood.  The speaker was introduced  by D. A. Evans, resident manager, Powell River company.  WILSON CREEK  MRS. D. ERICKSON  Correspondent  PIONEER women are still with  us in these parts anyway.

Rudyard Kipling  should have known him at the peak of his soldierly career. Not, perhaps, when he was Chief  of the Imperial General Staff in the Munich  days, although he did much to renovate the  British Army for the tests to come. Nor when,  as Inspector General of Forces for Training,  he readied Britain against a German invasion  after the fall of France. But rather when he  stood with the last to leave on the beaches of  Dunkirk and himself fired one last volley from  a machine gun at a German dive bomber. Or  er  .- A COMMUNITY paner is a record of community activities. Through its pages, one  finds, (or should fine) recorded for posterity,  the births, deaths, marriages and accidents of  life. All the things that make life worth living  in your community should find way into the  pages of the community paper, sooner or later.  A community paper is the champion of  the people in that community. If it is the  ohampion it is also the critic, for we are our  own best 'critics, and paper, after all, is made  up and written by average men and women,  your, neighbors and friends, and the policy of  the paper is determined by the readers through  .them.  Your community paper is not interested in  other' countries or worlds  or provinces other  than the one or ones it serves, therefore its  articles are for "local consumption".   I tnever  was intended to compete with the big dailies.  What is the advantage of all this?  The biggest advantage of the paper is that  it is so small.   It is composed of events and  articles are for "local consumption".   It never  missing events or articles of local interest it  is not only the privilege, but the obligation of  its subscribers,  (in reality the true owners of  >  the   paper)    to   let   the   paper   management -  know' what they want.   Because the paper is  small,   the   articles   are   quickly  located,   and  easily digested.   When  one  considers the  familiar -complaint "I don't even have time to  - read the daily I am getting," one can see the  advantage of the smaller-paper,;  In addition to. that; surveys show that the  average reader sees no more actual material in,  the large daily, than in the small weekly, yet  they pay the same amount. ���...  In. addition ..to tfyis, one can express himself  thr;Ougfh i tthe ;(1c5mmuriityy> paper wheref they  would not get a, hearing through the daiiyy  Those who have ho interests outside their  own home should be the staunchest supporter  of the community paper, for the community  ���paper, being written by the home town people  rather than high priced experts, brings into  focus many solutions for home problems. Recipes are written by local women, for local  women. Upon demand and upon receipt of.  contributions, the paper will print suggestions  on gates, gardens, fishing or farming.  Sports records will gladly be kept by the  paper upon receipt of reports, (which captains  and coaches have not yet bothered with to  any degree.)  "So what?" now becomes the easiest of all to  answer. The amount of service given by your  paper is decided by the amount of active circulation. It is the paper of our subscribers,  and the more there are of them, the more they  shall receive, and the less *?��f what is in the  paper shall be wasted. So get your friends interested in your paper, and be sure that when  this copy is finished in your household, some  uneducated neighbor has a chance to see it.

How Kipling would have loved himT  Our Forest Capital  THE POWELL River Company, which manufacturers pulp and paper on its model town-  site some 70 miles north of Vancouver paid  the Dominion Government $3,104,500 in income  and excess profits taxes in the year 1945. The  tax is an enormous one, but is levied presumably on the basis of the company's ability to  pay. So, no fault can be found with it on the  ground of size.  There is something to be said about it on  on other grounds, however. The profits and income of the Powell River Company were derived from the exploration of one of the great  resources of British Columbia ��� the forests.  These forests constitute part of the capital  of the province and there is a capital element  in that $3,000,000 tax which the Powell River  Company paid.  Now, capital is one of the factors in production. Without it production can not go on and  without production there can be no economic  life. The exploration of. the forests of British  and, for the perpetuation of the forests tfyat  Columbia amounts to a using up of capital  capital should be plowed back.  Whatever capital element there is in the  Powell River Company's tax���and the same  is true ^f. the taxes paid by all the other logging and lumbering arid pulp arid paper companies operating in the y province���-should not  remain in Ottawa, should not bs spent anywhere in, Canada except in British Columbia  or .ipr any other purpose in British Columbia  than for the�� protection-;.~p��, 4heTfoFesjts still  standing and the regeneration of the cut-over  ���landsv'''   "���- ,'M   ���  Chief Justice Sloan in his recent report set  forth British Columbia's objective in connection with its forest industries in these words:  "To so manage our forests that our forest  land is sustaining a perpetual yield of timber  to the fullest extent of its productive capacity."  Such an objective will give the province a  continuous industry, will give industry a continuing profit, labor a continuing payroll and  governments an annual revenue. But such an  objective can not be achieved if everyone concerned, industry, labor and governments alike  try to squeeze the last nickle from the forests. The capital must be plowed back and  whoever has it must plow. Chief Justice Sloan  suggests that the Dominion has an obligation  in this regard. But the Dominion has not yet  admitted it���Vancouver Daily Province.

One of the most. accomplished orators ever to speak  in Powell River, Mr. Henshaw. held his audience spellbound  as he first recalled incidents from his youth in the United   ���������^������     States and then used these  ���> -" ""     ���     incidents to drive home his  points.  Beginning his talk with an account of a cruise he and four  school chums had made aboard  an old-fashioned square-rigger,  (chartered at considerable expense by their hard-working  fathers), he went on to relate  how they had sailed all over the  Carribean, calling in at many  exotic and wonderful ports and  how one day the captain had  put them to cleaning off the  barnacles, "those husky, nasty,  dogmatic, persistent barnacles."  When the boys had finished the  job, each of them vowed that if  he ever went to sea it would  only be when he had acquired  sufficient financial resources to  have a crew to cleah' off barh-  ables. t  Much io ihe lads' chagrin, the  Captain told them (after lie had  sailed the ship through the Panama Canal) thai if he had stood  id in Gahxii Lake 'for a brief  spell, the barnacles wouki have  dropped off by themselves.  , "I learned a lesson from that  eixperier&e that I have never  Mgbte said Mr. Henshaw.  ?The Wrhaei&B of this world are  not to be found on the hulls of  ships afone. l*Hrey are found in  To have the confidence of  one's child is the greatest reward of succesful parenthood,  and to gain it, like everything  else, one must start in infancy.  Don't be too busy to listen to  what the very small child has to  say. It may not seem very interesting or important to you,  bu it is to him, and if you ignore  him or put him off with vague  answers, he will soon develop  the habit of not saying anything or trying to tell you anything that seems important to  him, and by the time it is important iq you too .it, will be tbo  late, and we will have learned  to |^eej>^|iis:.jcpn|fences to; himself.

We'll never solve this so-called*  problem by kicking Quebec out  of Confederations���by damning  the French-Canadians as ignorant, bigoted provincials," he  said.  "But we can solve it hv trying  to understand their point of  view ' and! ' by studying their  custom^ and their character."  "There is something greater  than our own narrow views," he  continued, "and that is the destiny of Canada. We must be  change oii'r outlook to speed  iftiat destiny;.'
