Much of the program, dealt  .with* topics of current interest  and took the  attitude it was  time to take stock.  "Is* today's education building for tomorrow's free society,':' was the theme of one discussion which urged" direct  cooperation of all educational  groups, family, church, school.  Professor G. Andrews talked  on the subject, ''Education for  what?" He stressed that edu<  cation is -a lifelong process in  which all partners must work  together. He urged that schools  should "educate for continuing  ing education."  The: need, for real cooperation in education was nowhere  more evident than in the panel  discussion; around teen morals.  Roxburgh;   Smith,   principal  of .New Haven Boy's  School,  express'e'&'t't'he opinion bn   the-  present wave  of   juvenile  delinquency   when  he   said    the  ;ea'rly home and school training,  of'a would   be  normal   child  must be* aimed toward 'establishing- habits  of self control.

In the opinion of the Boardr  nothing would be gained at  this time if the proposed work  we're undertaken. The work  would be done according- to-  Public Works Department, the  Board to pay half the costs,  but certainly not built the way  the Board wanted it.  If the road was repaired?  under present Publie Work's  plans and turned back to* the'  Board as their responsibility,-  they feel they would in. a very  short time have to undertake  major repairs.

"Local   children," he, said,  "are    unaware    of   increased  danger and it is up to parents  and teachers to instiU/the^re^  ^^oh^ibilit^^to^y^?^  " Only two cycles may ride  abreast on the highway," he  said.  Bicycles can be, seized and  ordered confiscated by the  crown following highway infractions.  Touching upon firearms the  Constable said no one under  the age of 14 years could get  a firearm permit, while only  conditional permits would be  granted to persons up to  years of age,  "It should be recalled,"  said, "that restricted permits  mean the child must not wander at large with the firearm  without being accompanied by  the parent."

Poole, give of their time and efforts in  a truly generous and   community minded gesture.    ���  The concert was planned b^ Legion branch 140 in order to  Taise funds with which to pay off the present Legion Hall.  When Branch President Captain Andrew Johnston said,  "we are very grateful for the splendid contribution made on  behalf of Jthje Branch by Miss Maclntyre and her very talented  .company," he voiced the opinion of not only Legion members  ?bui also of the many persons who attended the splendidly  Bandied concern. .  This is not the first time that this public spirited lady and  musicians, each of whom, are worthy of much personal credit,  lias dons something for nothing.  It is getting to be a regular occurance to have Miss Maclntyre and her Mends give concerts up and down the Peninsula.  The Peninsula is very lucky to have such talent and double lucky  i&at the talent reposes in such splendid people as the Roberts  ; Creek String Orchestra.  * lardly good enough  The Village Commission, in turning down plans for the Bay  Franklin Road as proposed by the Department of Public Works,  Aid'the right thing.  The road, which is now a disgrace, will be called upon to  give added service with everypassing month.  A mere cow trail, with lefssthan one inch of gravel on it,  would be just a plain waste of moneyi��� our money.  When the government turned down the plans of A. E.  Kitchey and the Commission as being too expensive, isl ooked as  if the departnient with its wider range of -equipment was prepared to dp vthe much nsedeci wiork of practically; building the  ��^road for iess money.  Then came the awakening. The government was prepared to  ^save money- for the village and itself (it would pay for half the  cost of putting the road? in shape) by simply doing a jerry built*  job arid then turning the road? over to' the village.  Gibsons, if jthe contmissidn had not decided differently,  twould ha renting ^che^ljrbuiH road for the next 20 years.

Mother may have stirred things up, but whether in  the right place, or to do any  good,  is questionable.  There    are    more    armchair  professors today,   expounding  what the world  needs  to  improve  it   than there  are  armchair gene'rals during the war.

This is what Brock  Chisholm needs to put life and  fire into his cold facts, what  Russell lacks to jreform the  world. To know about Jesus; is  not enough. It must be a heart y;  change, a conversion, a salvation experience.

Held up by the summer, forest closure, work is being hastened at present, with -men like  foreman Ed Watts; sub-foreman John Linney, apprentices  Jimmy Smith and Gilbert  lineman   Russ   Garness  ���and groundman Bob Reid now  running  toiling  with the rain  ���down iffoe, backs of their necks.

This  last section, now partially  cleared,' is being built from  rafts which carry compressors,  donkey engines and other  equipment.  Meanwhile, at the head of  Salmon Arm, on a picturesque  -site ��� with a waterfall on each  side of the powerhouse, resident engineer Thor Herman,  field engineer Jim Patterson  and assistant Gordon Nairne;'  are readying the site for delivery this month of turbines,  valves, switch' jsanels-, .trans-,  formers and generators.  Because  the development is  on  tide-water, this  equipment  will   be towed  in  barges.  The dam on Clowhom River,  the 1,000-foot; 66-inch wood  stave pipeline, .the surge tank,  'penstock, powerhouse, switching station steelwork and two  operators' dwellings are completed, and the, 50-man crew of  the general contractor, Dawson, Wade & Co.

Veterans have mailed out over  205,000 Miniature Plastic  Auto-Licence Tags jbut only  90,000 motorists have returned  their cards with a remittance  which means that well over 50  per cent of the motoring public  are using their tags without  havin paid for them.  The T.B. Veterans know  that this isn't because of neglect or selfishness on the part  of the motorists but probably  is a matter that has. just been  over-looked. So, they are asking the thousands of motorists  in British Columbia to check  and see if they have paid for  this year's tag, and, ir not, to  forward their 25 cent pieces  to the T.B.
