That might be  Jjjtlomacy.  Mil. in all I can't think of any-  |i who would be more unqual-  :d to judge than I.  This is one for the book.  Just after certain letters to the.  f tor appeared regarding a road  the  Skookum Chuck  and an  Utorial on the same subject in  Coast News,  more than 400  ^���es  of land  was  sold  in  that  , sa.

J_t think  it  is  Margaret   Allen  $Wi  West  Sechelt  who  uses  a  Will Assist in  Fight For Water  SECHELT ��� Among those charged with helping Lawyar Thomas Campbell compile a brief  against water tariff increases  are, Ken Whitaker, J. Sowerby,  Walter Wadell and Jack Mayne.  Jackson Scores  Sighted Water Policy  SECHELT���Al Jackson was his usual  blunt self when he addressed fellow. Board of Trade members at a meeting in  the Sechelt Inn.  Speaking on the discussion of  increased water rates, the Wilson Creek logger pointed out that  this question of water rates would  never have cropped up if "we  had had the gumption to follow  our own beliefs several years ago.  Mr Jackson recalled that quite  probably a proper body could  have been formed, raising the  money needed to buy out the  Union Estates interest at two percent.  He scored the lack of foresight  and present objections voiced by  some householders for their present predicament, and warned  against a policy of merely repairing and "making do".  "This area is growing more  populated every day. We must  plan ahead to care for this great  growth," he urged.  Help Needed In  Water Rate Meet  SECHELT ��� Board of Trade and  Selma Park Community Association would like it known that a  good turnout at. the Public Utilities Commission slated for 2:30  p.m. in Legion Hall, Tuesday,  would quite probably react in  the favour of residents. It is  thought that this hint should be  sufficient to warrant a bumper  turnout.  Pearson Wins  SECHELT ��� Ernie Pearson, Union Agent here, won the attendance prize at the monthly Board  of Trade meeting.  Amalgamation Query  GIBSQNS-^-Meeting of the Village Commission dealt with  * correspondence from R. C. MacDonald, Minister of Municipalities on the contentious subject of amalgation of 686,  and" 685. In his letter Mr MacDonald said, "the department  feels that should the residents of DL 686 and DL 685 wish tp  amalgamate with the village, they should be allowed to do so  upon   petition   to   the   Board   of : ���   Commissiohers, "of course subject to the Board's concurrence-���  Howev'er,oit is not felt that such  amalgamation should be dependent on the granting of special  powers to the village. (My deputy  has informed you that the question of extension of boundaries  and the granting of special powers are separate and cannot be  treated as one question. In this I  must concur. I might add that  general Municipal Government is  the, dominating factor rather  than the supplying of one service.  "While I can well understand  It Was a Nice  Gesture Doctor  SECHELT ��� Dr D. McColl with  commendable public spirit had  one time set up and awarded  prizes for a name to replace that  of Sechelt Peninsula Board of  Trade.  Monday evening the doctor  could not recall who or what  name had won ihe prize. It made  little difference. The Board, on a  your desire to not subject the three-way vote, upheld the pro-  village to the expense of extend- posal of Ernie Pearson and Mick-  ing the water system, it should ey Coe "That the name, Sechelt  be  possible  to  arrange   for   this    Peninsula   Board   -x   �����'���'��-    -~-  even to. the extent of having the  affected residents contribute to  the construction with any balance being made up out of water  rates normally. Of course capital  expenditures are the responsibility of the supplier..  "It seems to me that residents  of these two areas haying by petition signified their desire to be  included within the village "boundaries should be accorded their  (Continued  on  Page  8)  of Trade, remain as is." Board members  agreed, while the doctor still  scratched his head wondering  what his competition had been  all about.  Legion Shamrock  Tea at Sechelt  SECHELT ��� The LA to Canadian  Legion  Branch   140,  will  hold a Shamrock Tea in the Legion Hall, March 14.  Co-Op Store Sees New  Faces; Old Ones Leave  GIBSONS���Resignation  of  Robert  Burns as  secretary of the  Elphinstone Co-op marked a recent general meeting. Mr  Burns had two years of his term to go, but withdrew.  Fred Holland and Eric Inglis were returned unanimously  for another three year term. Mrs E. Nestman was elected to  the board of directors to finish out a one year term.   George Elander elected to fin-     ' ���       "  ish ..out his term while the resignation of George Marsden was  accepted with regret. Mr Marsden resigned owing to ill health.  nice expression when talking  about women .who are going to  help the stork. She calls it lady-  in-waiting.  The store reported a loss for  the year. It was pointed out, this  was expected owing to the past  bungling of a former manager.  The bonding company will return the missing  $1000.  Wiljo Wiren, driver for the  store has also resigned. He will  be  leaving  sometime  in   March.  urvey of  lowholnt  SECHELT���Residents  here  are  up   in  arms against what  has  been called "exorbitant" water tariffs proposed by Union  Estates in an application to Public Utilities Commission.  Led by Thomas Campbell of the law firm, Campbell,  Brazier, Fisher and MacMaster, householders will lay their  objections in front of the Commission slated to hold hearings,  March 7 at Sechelt.  Mr   Campbell,   in   a   preview      ���  look at the trouble with the Sechelt Board of Trade, pointed out  that complaints against the application would have to be more  than just "prejudice and wishful thinking." He warned the.  Union Estates would be prepared  to show just cause why it is applying for the increase. "It is up  to you people to show equal reason why these proposed costs are  exorbitant," he  said.  Mr Campbell's suggestions  were built around several points.  1. Consumers must have figures on the capital value of the  water instalation, also replacements if they should have come  out of capital investment.  '2. They must show the income  from revenue as against overall  expenditure.  3. He warned that complaints  would have to be specific cases  with dates and all pertinent data.  Mr Campbell revealed the utilities company was entitled to  five percent return on their investment ��� assured by the PUC.  The hearings may run into the  second day according to hints  from the Redroofs summer resident .^who.: -.-is.....also... chairman: of,  that feommuhityV^ water' cortimit-  tee. The well known lawyer is  also a member of the Sechelt  Board of Trade.  New Manager  Co-op Store  GIBSONS ��� Gordon King will  take over as manager of the  Elphinstone Co-op Store following resignation of Peter DeJong  who accepted a position in Vancouver.  Mr King is well known on the  peninsula, having been a resident at Halfmoon Bay for many  years. He is a veteran of the last  PORPOISE BAY ��� A crew of  surveyors left this area Wednesday, headed for Clowholm Falls.  This is the first move in the  series it is hoped will end with  a completely new power generating station at Clowholm.  Mr S. R. Weston, chairman of  the B.C. Power Commission,  when on a recent visit here announced that work would start  on preliminary surveys, as soon  as the snow had gone.  Indian Meeting  Of Importance  SECHELT ��� Indian Chief William Scow has announced that  the 20th annual convention of the  Native Brotherhood of -which he  is chief, will be held at Bella  Bella, April 14.  Chief Scow is endeavoring to  impress the importance of this  particular meeting on all Indians.  Urging each group and district  to send representatives, he disclosed discussions will be based  on what is available on revision  of the Indian Act. It is hoped  that a complete report on this all  important legislation will be  available.  Many matters of importance to  natives will be handled. In the  past many Indian delegates from  other provinces attended these  meetings.  war and now lives with his family in Gibsons.  Jackson to Discuss  Road Appropriations  SECHELT ��� Al Jackson, chairman" of this community's Board  of Trade committee on roads, has  a big job on his hands.  Mr Jackson will journey to  Victoria, charged with interviewing B. M. "Batt" Maclntyre in  order to ascertain what the road  appropriation may be this year.  Interviews will be sought with  E. C. Carson, minister of public  works, in an effort to have certain promises kept, also further  improvements made this year.  Delegates from Halfmoon Bay  at the recent Board of Trade  meet were adamant in their demands for improvements to certain sections of their highway,  particularly the part leading to  the wharf.  William Kolterman, brought  out that little work of any type  had been done last year in the  Halfmoon area. He contended  that equipment was too limited  for the distance to be covered.  This will also be brought up by  Mr Jackson during his visit.   "  The roads committee chairman  and local logger brought out that  he had previously discussed the  question of roads and appropriations. He believed that much of  the recent widening and grading  of the present highway between  Roberts Creek and Wakefield  was part of a plan which, he sug  gested, could quite probably end  with double flushing of that particular stretch.  Mr Jackson also pointed out  that Mr Carson, during a visit  last year, had promised completion of the Port Mellon road.  "There is quite a probability  that at least part of this work  will be done this year." It is believed the highway will be pushed throuh as far as Champion  and White's gravel pit. This would  leave only a snort part of comparatively easy grading to be  done in order to complete the  highway linking Port Mellon  with the remainder of the peninsula.  The one man delegation will  also point out what the board alleges is a "useless waste of money" in reconstructing and improving the Roberts Creek -wharf.  Following a hint that further  money would be spent on this  project, Mr Jackson will point  out to the government that this  money would be better spent on  improving  present highways.

In fact, to this day, I associate  the word "janitor" with a dour,  sour faced individual with a fault  finding voice, always raised in  complaint of the extra work the  student body caused him (I suppose the poor man was completely harrassed by our careless and  ornery habits).  At any rate, our children, here  at Gibsons, will have no such  memories of their school custodian. His popularity is well earned. Who else, for instance, could  remain good natured after all  his extra work during our recent  freezing weather? (He kept many  all night vigils up at the school  these past few weeks.) Some  might say that he is only performing his duties, but there is  no law saying he has to be good  natured about it.  The fact that he is, certainly  makes a much more pleasant  place for the students and the  teachers.  Both Mr and Mrs Davies have  always been most generous with  their time and their help, whenever our kids needed them. If  you haven't been aware of our  good fortune in having this couple living and working in our  midst, find out like I did ��� just  ask the kids.  Should you feel like giving  some guy a pat on the back, or  some gal an orchid for public  service and a truly civic spirit, I  don't think you could choose a  more deserving pair than Mr and  Mrs Doug Davies.  Yours sincerely,  Appreciative Mother.

Mr Earl Laughlin was the guest  of honor at the party given by  Mrs Laughlin on Friday evening,  the occasion being Mr Laughlins  birthday.  The evening was spent playing  cards,: and a delightful supper  was served later, Mr Laughlin  cutting his birthday cake > amid  the good wishes' of the many  guests.

Philp    who  E<��dk Us Up  rw  JUST HOW stupid can we get?  There seems to be no limit to the utter senselessness of the human mind. There are ho ^boundaries to. our inanity. ., .  More than $200,000 will yet be spent on Roberts Creek wharf and dredging the immediate  bay west of it. Huge sums of money have already  been spent here in the last three years. Twelve  million dollars will be spent throughout B.C. and  the Yukon this year repairing and building federal facilities. If we can use Roberts Creek and  several other docks and wharves on the Sechelt  Peninsula as a criterion then the answer to the  first question undoubtedly is, there are no limits.  We are probably just as crazy as we-can be  without being locked up.  Instead of building wharves, the government  should build other types of institutions where we  could be forcibly restrained. We may turn out  to be harmful some of these days.  A new float will be built at Granthams. Vast  repairs will be undertaken at Davis Bay. Halfmoon Bay is in dire need of a job of work. We  honestly believe the government should be informed of a place just three hundred yards east  of the present Davis Bay wharf where another  wharf, complete with floats and breakwater  could quite easily be built. It might even be possible to build another wharf at Sechelt. It doesn't  seem to matter as to what good comes of these  stupid edifices to bungling and not too good engineering. All that is needed is for someone to  A Virile Group  SECHELT Board of Trade had one of its infrequent meetings. They came from far and  near to discuss and argue about the water question. Selma Park and Halfmoon Bay were well  and ably represented. But there was a fear at that  meeting.  Ken Whitaker, able and capable president,  gave a hint of that fear when he congratulated  the crowded members on their presence. "We  should have this sort of meeting all the time" he  said.  And there lies the truth and the doubt.  Sechelt Board of Trade can 'pull' a good  meeting when the chips are down, when the claws  are dipping into each individual pocket, digging  out, the dollars. Let none, of ..those present forget  that by virtue of* a virile board of trade, niany  apply for a grant for improvement or repair of a  wharf and the money will eventually come seeping through.  Would it be too much to suggest the government stop throwing hundreds of thousands of our  dollars down the sink?  Would it be too much to point put there are  other and better-means of travelling. Highways���-  paved and properly constructed could be used  for economical transport. Roberts Creek needs a  wharf like Dracula needs another head. ���  Why in the name of all the saints, pagan and  otherwise cannot a good road be built to serve  the growing community in, question. With fast  truck and bus service on good roads there would  be a chance for Roberts Creek and others like it,  to grow and flourish and not have to sit and wait  for some contractor to come along and build or  repair a new wharf every few months. Roberts  Creek has been cut off from a proper supply  route several times in the last three years. And  yet the powers that be are going to build another'  stupid wharf in order to have boats pull it apart  again.  Any natural beauty the place has because of  its fair water front will be forever spoiled by  acres of driftwood backed up against the wharf.  Who cares? Only a few people along the waterfront.  Just how stupid does this get? How long do  we tolerate it?  dollars   can  be   saved   the   civic  and   individual  pockets.  Sechelt has a good board of trade. It has a  reasonably hard working executive. But what  seems to escape many of the members is that  there are more sound financial goals ahead than  will keep the board going for many moons. Even  the best executive in the world cannot last without support.  Most members believe that support is. there  when it is "needed." Let them not be misled.  There is a need at every meeting for gobjd\tiirn  outs. '���"'"''''"  Kicks have been heard down through the  years that this board is,this and the other board  is that.

According to Father Viney,  this hall is so much in demand  the residential school finds it  difficult to get a night to themselves. The school principal has  been most generous to local associations and we feel we now  should get working on a community hall of some kind, large  enough to hold concerts and  plays and anything else that  might come along.  We couldn't help casting our  mind back to the early days and  the community spirit that existed then. The little log hall where  we had such wonderful times  was no sooner thought about  than it was an accomplished fact.  Mr W. B. Billingsley organized a  party; logs were brought down  from the woods, and all the men  lent a hand with the work. The  women brought on the refreshments and grand they were too,  quite a competitionJ to see who  ^hiade the. best strawberry shortcake we remember. But times  have changed now. We gather together with the Board of Trade  and other bodies. This of course  must start with a dinner party  and much lengthy discussion. We  have noticed in passing the ponderous attitude during these  lengthy debates. Some day we  may see something done. But  what.  Was talking to a woman recently and she told me her husband attended so many meetings  she forgot what he looked like.  We can't see any difference in  the district for all that. One of  these days three good women and  a bulldozer will get going and  then watch things hum.  They tell us that the Vancouver bus terminal is the place to  meet people one has not seen  for years. Was in town with IV^iss  Elsie Turner recently and did  just that. The first person we  saw was Mr Ron Jones with his  wife and two little boys. Ron;  you will remember, was with the  Forestry here and lived for some  time at Roberts Creek. He is still  with the forestry and near New  Westminster. They were so pleas  ed to see us and the children  have grown beyond all belief  they said to say "hello" to everyone they knew, as if we could  possibly do that but here is a  good try.  The next one was ;Mr Marchant, father of Miss Beatrice Marchant who taught school here  and was also the means of Pro  Rec starting here. She went over  the Peninsula quite a bit on her  own time on the same mission.  Sorry to hear she has been ill in  hospital and had a severe operation. The Doctor says no more  physical education. That will be  bad news for Beatrice as she was  so keen on it. We hope to see her  at Easter if all goes well and she  hopes to be back on the job by  then.  Mrs Bob Cooke and daughter  Susan are in Vancouver for a  few days' vacation and Darolyn  will stay with Mrs Frank French  in the interim.  There seems to be much misunderstanding in regard to the  P-TA. Some think that this body  in some way has a bearing on  the school by-law. In fact we  wouldn't be surprised to hear  that the P-TA fathered the idea.  Now this is of course all non-  sence. The purpose of P-TA is to  know the child through study  and PARENT education, to cooperate with the school and  other educational agencies in his  training and to control and build  his environment through worthy  home life and community life  with the development of public  opinion and civic activity. Any  adult in essential agreement with  the belief that the welfare of society depends on the training of  children and youth can find in  the P-TA the medium for bringing about reforms necessary for  the benefit of the home, community, province and nation.  Now we have always enjoyed P-  TA and they have done a lot of  good for the school we especially  enjoyed the Founder's Day ceremony at the last meeting as it  was the first time the high school  students had taken an active part  in this. The girls were letter perfect and each of them lit a candle  for the founders. Six of them  were lit here - for Alice Birney,  Phoebe Hirst, Mrs A. Courtice,  Dr  G.   W.  Kirby,  Mrs  J.  Muir-  head, Mrs Pearl Osborne, and  Mrs Alice French. The girls were  Mary Parker, Marilyn Lyonns,  Eleanor Gowland, Eleanor Powell, Tresa Jeffries and Diane McColl, and Mrs Frank French who  was instrumental in organizing  the first P-TA, read the minutes  of the first meeting. Special mention was also made with regard  to Mrs W. Aylward the first secretary and a very good worker  in the P-TA cause while her  husband, Constable Aylward was  stationed here. Mrs L. S. Jackson  conducted the meeting held in  the school.  Congratulations Mr and Mrs  William Elliott on your 44th wedding anniversary. May you live  long to celebrate many more.  Mr Walter McKissock has gone  to Vancouver to visit little daughter Naureen.  Very glad to see Margaret Allen writing for this paper. Case  of you'll tak' the high road and  I'll tak' the low eh? Anyway it  will be nice to get that touch of  Scottish humor. We missed it  since she moved so far away from  us.  Saw Mr John Ellis in town recently. He was school principal  here and not feeling any too  chipper now, but asked after  everyone. We did our best.  We noticed T. R. Campbell,  well known Vancouver lawyer,  here for a short visit. Rumor has  it that he will be representing  John Public at the forthcoming  Public Utilities hearing here  shortly when we go to bat about  the proposed increase in water  rates.  We notice Mrs H.

FIRST OF FOUR UNITS  These tenders close on April  11 for the generators and March  31 for the turbines.  The site of the generating station is at the head of Salmon  Arm, approximately 20 miles east  of Sechelt.  The generating plant will comprise No 1 and 2 units of an ultimate 4-unit station. It is anticipated that the future 2 units will  be of like size to those now required, making a total of approximately 8,000 horsepower in the  final phase of construction.  Each generator is to be directly connected to and driven by a  2,000/ horsepower hydraulic turbine of 160 feet net rated head.  The generating station will be  designed for partial automatic operation, giving automatic shutdown of units but manual starting and synchronizing.'  The hydro-electric station is  an isolated plant supplying a  .66 kw transmission system, initially 25 miles long, for which the  charging capacity is calculated at  650 kva. Utimately this system  might be expanded to 50 miles  of line for which, the charging  capacity would be doubled.  A summary of hydraulic data  is provided in specifications by  the Power Commission with respect to the manufacture of turbines and valves. Wood stave  pipeline from the intake to the  surge tank will be 820 feet long  of 5% feet diameter. The penstock for each of the 2 units from  the surge tank to the powerhouse  will be 100 feet of the same diameter   as  the  wood  stave pipe.  By CLARENCE JOE  ABOUT the year 1916 the Sechelt braves witnessed their  great loss when the school which  they built with such loving pride,  burned down. Later, the Indian  Department supplied the materials for construction of a new  school in order to continue teaching native children.  It took until 1922 before the  federal government did finally  build the present brick school  which now stands on exactly the  same spot of the first school.  And now to get down to some  present news.  Chief Billy Mitchell from the  Toak tribe was here visiting his  three children attending our residential school.

During his stay with us, Mr  Mitchell held converse with many  of our head men and discussed  some very important matters. It  was during these talks that it  was decided to hold the Native  Brotherhood meeting in conjunction with our Native sisterhood.  The all important meeting will  be held here.

Seen  with husband, Teddy, seven, Kenneth, four, Lynda,  ���Central Press Canadian  two, and baby Bryan, she lost her sight and right  hand in a percussion cap explosion when she was six.  She does all housework and is the "best cook in  the whole work," according to her husband.  Much Ado ���  Bv  Cherry   Whitaker  I have- discovered that a column is not a thing that can be  either taken or left alone, according to the mood. It's a "till  death do us part" sort of deal.  In the first place that man, editorially known as WE, likes to  have things in the right place���  at the right time. Which is his  business and not open to argument.  In the second place, if you have  written a column for any length  Df time, readers get used to that  particular space being filled, and  feel a little aggrieved if it is  missing. It's not the value of the  thing, it's simply that it's familiar, and like an aching tooth, its  removal leaves a vacancy for a  while.  Thirdly, writing a column is as  insidious as golf, or malaria. Once  you get the bug you've got it for  life ... at least at frequently recurring intervals. You get tired  of it; you loathe the thought of  having to get at it again, and as  with the Scottish game, sometimes you give it up as a total  loss and take a holiday.  You explain to the boss that  the brain has dried up . . . blown  away-. . . gone kaput, and what's  to do about it? He mutters things  about "consistency being the keynote" and something that sounds  suspiciously like "the show must  go on". In time, finding that his  inspired phrases don't light any  bonfires,  he  grudgingly    admits  Business and Professional  DIRECTORY  it  Please Clip This Directory Out and Hang By Your Phone  For Reference  BEER BOTTLES  TYPEWRITERS  Will call and buy for cash,  beer bottles, scrap metal, etc.  Calls made at intervals from  Hopkins to Irvines Landing.

Lewis reminds  us of the early day motor cars  ���the kind that broke down  while standing still.  It may be destiny that shapes  our ends, but many a flapper has  found that these electric reducing machines help.  that going sour has Happened before in the history of a newspaper, and with fairly good grace  consents to a temporary leave of  absence. You mutter "temporary  indeed" and accept with thanks.  Feeling like a combination of  Benedict Arnold and Frankenstein's monster you watch a couple of deadlines roll by . . . vowing firmly that the holiday is  going to last forever.  It doesn't! After a time, you  begin to be aware of an old familiar itch. Here and there in the  seemingly insane pattern of current events, you detect a bright  note that leads you to wonder if  the future might possibly be  worth living. People begin to be  interesting individuals once  again, instead of characters who  till now you feel would look a  lot better swinging from the  branches of the nearest tree.  Along with the aforementioned  itch, you  are  vaguely  conscious  that something seems to be missing from your life. You get an  urge  to  do  something    positive  about  some  of the    half-formed  ideas drifting in and out of your  head. Daily, the conviction  that  ���- > someday you are going to write -  the great* Canadian novel, grows  stronger.   Of  course  you  realize  that  you  are   pretty  busy  right  now, and won't have time to get  down to any really serious work,  but it might be an idea  to get  back on good terms with the column again. After all, a 500 word  vocabulary needs  exercise,  even  if 'yes',  'no'  and *mebe'  can  be  grunted quite effectively.  So, in an idle moment ... a  moment when a week's ironing,  ten pairs of un-darned socks and  a rearless pair of jeans beckon  joylessly . . . you unearth the  copy paper and blow the dust  off the typewriter.  This is supposed to be the signal for the dam to burst, flooding page after page with deathless prose. But there seems to be  a mental block. Of course you understand that it is only a temporary affair due to the period of  disuse; a thing of the moment,  and that the ball will start rolling after the next cup of coffee  and/or cigarette ... a stroll on"  the beach or an hour of quiet  concentration.  The coffee pot goes dry; the  cigarette supply decreases and the  hour goes into an overtime period. Three distinct tries having  produced nothing more than several errors in "Now is the time  for all good men to come to the  aid of the party" you know for  sure that you are back in the  groove again. The holiday hasn't  done a thing for the brain except  give renewed strength to continue doing it the hard way.  Dragging each sentence out by  the roots, worrying it into semi-  coherence audibly praying that  each paragraph will provide inspiration for the next one.  Those good ideas are just as  elusive as they were when you  weren't consciously thinking  about them. Wistfully you think  back to the holiday period and  for a few minutes contemplate a  permanent leave of absence.~But  that line of thought is soon discarded because you know darned  well that you'd rather do it the  hard way than not at all, and  there is always the hope that the  next time is going to break all  records for originality, speed and  lack of effort.  And so, gentle readers, as long  as you "Put another nickel in!"  I'll go on writing.  c     L7_.cs.      t  ��r Commands Air forces  bechelt School News 'm Joint Operation  By   ELAINE   GOWLAND  A SURE sign Spring is in the  air is the formation of a Garden  Club.

Club officers. are: Theresa Jef-  . "fries, Karen Stockwell and Avril  Lucken. In order to raise funds  to buy seeds and slips, fudge and  candy will be sold at the school  concert. Window boxes are in  the making, thanks to Mr Heskin,  our Janitor, and with the help of  the masculine sex to dig the gardens (we hope), the club should  be ready to set to it.  Valentine's Day was celebrated  in good style with each room having a party.  Basketball season is just about  on its last legs and football has  taken its place. For the first  time, the girls have a team of  their own and are enjoying it  very much in spite of skinned  shins and dislocated ankle bones.

At the time they were  confined mostly to the European  operations in the Aeronautic  field. It now appears that a  specie of Gremlins specializing  in making news-copy disappear  has infested our own reliable  Coast News, hence no Wilson  Creek News have appeared in the  past three weeks.

To honor the founders of the parent-teacher movement, six high-school students  took part in the candle-lighting ceremony and Mrs Alice  French read the minutes of the first P-TA meeting -held in  Sechelt.  The   first   meeting   since   No-      = ;   vember saw a heavy agenda dealt .  with, President L. S. Jackson in  the chair.  The finance committee reported that the Talent Night would  be postponed till March 24, to  give P-TA's in other areas time  to round up their local talent.  In her report for the school  Mrs Wm Rankin, Principal,  thanked the P-TA for the $160  donation and reported that the  School Board had matched $60  for a Compton's Encyclopedia,  which is now in use at the school.  The rest of the money is earmarked for books, records and recreational equipment and will be  reported on when spent.  Mrs Rankin also explained that  owing to the large area to be  covered it is impossible for Public Health Nurse Mrs D. Dando  to call on all sick children. Di*  McColl is on call for diagnosis.  There is no charge unless the  parents want the child treated.  The P-TA will notify the  School Board that it is ready and  willing to diseminate information re the coming school by-law.

Red Cross is a channel for the kindest impulses of each one  of us. It is this great co-operative effort, this response from one  heart in concert with millions that makes the Red Cross a living  symbol of mercy.
