During the program  thei choral group sang "All  through the night," and  "Green grow the rushes O."  to an appreciative audience  and earned the plaudit of all.  The invocation was led by  the Rev. Alan. Greene of the  Columbia  Coast Mission.  R. D. Murdock welcomed  local residents to see the new  building as well as visitors  from "as far as Sechelt."  He paid tribute to members  of both the former sehool  board, as, well as the new  board for their hard work and  their foresight.  In a brief talk by Tom Humphries, chairman of the Sechelt  District Board of School Trustee* Mr. Humphries outlined  some of the difficulties that  had been encountered, but  stated that most of the difficulties had surmounted despite  rising costs. The distrtict now  j.had vfive new..,schools, all v of  '' wfrfebrwere a credit 'to"the district.

T. Rendle expressed  the regrets of 'department of  education officials in Victoria  for their inability to attend.  He said that the new sehool  was an indication of the  growth of the area, just as the  new school buildings throughout British Columbia' were an  indication of the growth of  the province. He congratulated  the school boards, past and  present  for- the work and the  ered with samples of students'  art work, maps, and projects,  foresight. He also congratulated the ratepayers for the part  they had played in making  possible the construction of  the fine structure.  Mr. Rendle said that modern?  education is a complex business and calls for teamwork.  He named the participating:  members of the team as. the  Department of Education, tlie-  School Boards. B.C. Teachers  Federation, P-TA, and. maintenance staff. The children,  he said, were the most important part of the team. They, as ,  well a.s benefitting by the new  school, had two obligations'  thrust upon them. They must  take advantage of the educational facilities offered to*  them, and they must appreciate and respect the school  building which is theirs: He*  complimented the teachers forth e fine appearance .of the*  buildings.  Walls of the rooms are coy-  Among student projects shown  ��� were-a relief map of Austral ia,  job surveys, notebooks.' ' on  ancient Egypt, tadpoles, and  a study of oil. All rooms were  bright, airy, and colorful.  As well 'as the five classrooms, the school contains  offices, nurse's room, lava-'  tories, lockers, and heating  room. About- 150 students are  enrolled covering all grades,  and while the building is much  ahead of any school that has  been built on the northern end  of the Peninsula, it is already  too cramped for space. One  teacher has over forty pupils .  in. the three grades which call  the. classroom their home room.  Mr. Rendle presented the  key to the school to the principal, Mr. Thomas, who spoke  a brief word of thanks. The  building was. then declared  officially opened by Mr. Rendle, and following the singing  of "The Queen," refreshments  were served, filling out a  pleasant  evening.

British Columbia  C^dl  it  iiona  And Old Tin Cans  Ah, Spring! There were the birds flitting in the trees,  .chirping out their chatter of sunny days; there were the fernis  smfolding from the earth as the sun warmed the edge of the  pathway: there were the mayflowers, seeming to spring up from  Ihe earth, awaiting the hour of their blossoming. There were  the slanting rays of morning sun streaming,, filtered, through  ��he boughs of the big trees, like the sun through the stained  jglayss windows of a cathedral.  All the world was a cathedral, with the birds the choir, and  the gentle sound of surf on the graved beaich filling the bass.  Then, I came upon a spot, behind a log, where a neighbor  had. dumped his old tin cans, some cartons, and a handle-less  broom  A Good Buy  The, merchants and businessmen who live and work on the  Peninsula are boosters of this district. They are the taxpayers  who help pay for the new schools, the local improvements. They  are. the people who work for better facilities for all residents  of  the Peninsula through   the boards of  trade, service   clubs,  Xsegion, P-TA, and ratepayers group ��� to mention only a few.  You'll find them heading up the sports   day   committees, the.  .paspade committees, and various cultural groups within the area.  ?'?Chey .are, incidentally, the men and women who pay the big  $faare of  the eost of  the weekly newspaper to keep  the local,  r-aresidents up to date on.-local news and happenings.

RAVEN  LIBERALS MEET  Regular monthly meeting of  the    Halfmoon    Bay    Liberal  Association   was  held   March  26 at Redroofs Hall, President  Bill Kolterman in the chair..  Minutels and a 6-point letter  sent to Department of Public  Works   from   the   association  were read   by secretary   Mrs.  Wm. Miller. The six points in  the "letter were re: The, cut-off.  power serviee,  state of roads,  daily mail service, school bus,  and daily bus service.  Under new . business came  the resolutions to the- forthcoming convention. They were  in part: to stop co-insurance  in BCHIS and increase pressure on delinquent dues; to  ask Forest Management to  give equal protection to small  loggers as holders of licenses  for larger tracts and to a��k  the Liberal party for 'more  equal distribution of funds.  In the past smaller associations have never received  funds to help defray any costs  whatsoever.  Our. president then introduced the speaker for the evening, popular Captain Andrew  Johnston.  As an opener Capt. Johnston  stressed the  fact that though  primarily   a Liberal    Associa?  tion   interested    in   obtaining  good government, the association was   there   to   help   and ���  .support local conditions whether    they    be     transportation,  schools,-  roads,   etc..   He- then  mentioned the reason for  the  lateness    of    the    nominating  convention,   stating that  Mr.  B.  M.  Maciintyre felt unable l  to   declare) himself until after   ,  the House prorogued. As Batt  has been such a staunch booster  for  MacKenzie riding, the  a. g'CJieral   opinion  was   to  wait  until   we   had   definite! word  from him. Date of the convention in Sechelt is April 23 and  24; in Powell River, May 10.  Locally Capt. Johnston mentioned he had wired Victoria  as to when and where the road  survey would istart. The reply  was: April ,,1 at Halfmoon Bay  cut off.  (Oh, oh, April Fool's  Day!) ?  This cut-off business has  been going a long time, and  special thanks must go to lone  warriors like, Mr. Ford of Nor'  West Bay, Mr. Ron Brewis,  Mr. Alf Young, and : other  property owners along the  way. It is only in the last year  or so, with added press Representation and pressure from  organized groups that things  have really? started moving.  1 A hearty vote of thanks was  given Capt. Johnston at the  close of his?ispeech. President  Bill Kolterm'an then said that  the next two monthly meetings would be devoted to  explaining ;(with blackboard)  the new voting system, and  all voters, members or not,  are Cordially invited.  Tentative, date,.for the next  meeting is -April 16. Meeting  closed with the serving of  refreshments.  Friday, March 28, was the  .official opening of Madiera  l^ark  Superior  School.  Guests of honor were trustee N. Hough; school members  Mr. Humphries, Mrs. Jackson,  and Mrs. Anne Burns; the  Rev.

One of the major fears  of cattle breeders, in British  Columbia is that this dreaded  disease should cross into this  province and affect deer and  other cloven-hoof wild animals.  If the disease ever hit B.C. 's  game, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to wipe  it out. And so long as it existed in game in' this province,  cattle raising would be next  to impossible. This opinion  was given by an expert and  prominent cattle breeder. He  pointed out that California  had slaughtered 17,000 deer to  rid that state of hoof and  mouth disease. However, B.C.  deer population is considered  to be much Larger and much  more.widely spread. Too, there  are many other cloven-hoof  wild animals.  Hoof and mouth is a virus  infection. It has very short  incubation period, about three  or four days, and can be spread  very easily. It can be transmitted by automobile tires,  clothing, cattle cars, hay, etc.  Also, horses can carry it although they are not susceptible to the disease.

Jackson in the chair, Tuesday evening  in Selma Community Hall.  The meeting bad been called by the Selma group following  a meeting held two weeks ago to discuss the; building of a large  community hail. Those attending the meeting were representatives of four of nine organizations' contacted to send representatives to the meeting.  In outlining the purpose of  the meeting, Gordon Dalzell  said that the time was now  ripe to build a large community hall, and while Selma had  taken the lead in the project,  residents of the Park community would cooperate, if the  building were constructed elsewhere,  Ernie Pearson stated that  the Union Estate had turned  over a 5-acre park to Sechelt,  with the board of trade acting  as trustees for, the site, aiid  that AI Jackson, chairman of  the board of trade's civic  affairs committee, was contemplating a similar meeting  to discuss the building of a  large community hall on the  park site.  Earl Dawe moved that the  meeting resolve itself, into a  Community Hall Round Table  to discuss th;e building of a  community hall to serve the  entire district. Motion parsed  unanimously. Mr. Jackson was  then named chairman of the  Round Table with Mr. Dawe  as secretary- ,  Bob Cook felt that committees could not be formed at  the time to look into the various aspects of the building as  fche meeting did not represent  interested par-tiejs but only represented delegates from four  organizations on the Peninsula.  He moved that a further meeting  of   the  Round   Table  be  the 5-acre Haekett Park site at  Sechelt, the meeting^ was keen  to leave any point of definite  location  open  to  further suggestion and further discussion  at  future   Round   Tables.   Sechelt has a suitable site, it was  pointed out, and it looks as if  the cost of a suitable building  would necessitate  the   cooper-  cation of all communities from  Wilson    Creek    to    Halfmoon  Bay. Each  community has  its  own small hall; a large one is  now    required    for    concerts, .  .gymnastics,   and   large   school  parties.  However,  the  Sechelt  site was not definitely settled  on.  Earl Dawe felt that the var-  ��� ious    communities    along   tlfe  route must now think in terms  of the community as a whole,  rather than of the community.,,  in  small, separate entities.  "While I live in Wilson  Creek," he said, "my livelihood is gained from all points  between Gibsons and Pender  Harbour, and I am interested  in the growth, of all of these  centres. It is the same with  most of the residents of the  Peninsula'. Those who think .  only in tennis of their home  community are holding up  progress,"  Cost of the building was also  left open for further discussion.  New Hien's Shop  For Sechelt  Business is on the increase  . in Sechelt, the latest addition  to the list of business being  the new men's wear shop in  the village centrei. Known as  the Toggery, it will be owned  by Mrs. John Coleridge, who  is well known in Peninsula  business circles asvlhe owner  of Irene's ladies' shop in Gibsons. Mr. Allan Andrews, an  'experienced tailor, will be  manager of the new Sechelt  store.  As well as handling all lines  of men's wear, the shop will  handle a department that is  unique around-these parts; a  department showing gifts' for  the ladies., Here men will be  able to buy filmy things for  the wife or sweetheart without  feeliug like intruders in ~ a  women's realm.  The new shop will open, next  week in time for the Easter  trade. Wei wish Mrs.; Coleridge  and Manager Andrews well in  their new venture.  Bob Cook moved a vote of  held on April 10, in the Selmai thanks to Bert Sim and Qordon  Hall, and that those attending     Dalzell  for having   organized  the last Tuesday evening meeting should contact others who  would be interested in taking  active participation in the  working towards a community  hall for the-district.  The meeting was cautious  lest the public get the wrong  slant on the proceedings.  While mention was made of  the meeting; and to Selma  Park Community Association  for the use of the hall.  The Round Table discussions  are to be held for those who  are definitely interested in the  building of a community hall.  Public meetings will be called  a later date. Next meeting of  the forum will be April 10.  Kinsmen  Invites  Community Aid  You' are invited by the Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and District to participate in a huge  community project.
