British Columbia.  dltodatd  Education We  Fifty years ago an adult visiting a school room found little  difference in it from then, one he had attended as a child- He came,  .-he saw, and generally he approved.  But gradually the school did change. The time came when  the adult failed to recognize the classroom of his own youth-  Then) he ceased to visit it.  Education Week was devised some years ago as a scheme to  bring the adult back to the school and an awareness' of the school  into the home. As is the case with oth&r "Weeks",-'is singles  out one short span, of time in which to emphasize and highlight  a function that goes on; the year around.  A week ago parents and other adults showed that they are  still interested in what the schools are doing- The fact that  some remained puzzled even after their visi�� is itself significant,  for it indicates how complicated the whole picture is.  It is complicated because the world around it is complicated.  A simple horse and buggy school would be out of place- in this  age of atomic fission and jet propulsion- The simple things must,  and" do, endure, but simplicity alone today denotes a failure to  grasp reality.  Adult Night and Open House are but scratches on the surface of what $ducatoin Week can do. Elsewhere on this page  appears a report made by two local students who represented  our school district at the University of British Columbia to lear,n  something of what itihas to offer- This is but another scratch.  Addfed and multiplied',-however, all such efforts can bring out a  pattern, an awareness and an understanding of what Education,  in. its broadest, sense, can. mean.

This d/_spite the fact that during the last!  election campaign, 29 Social Credit candidates expressed  themselves in favour of the principle of arMtration for  Government employees. Eleven, of these 29 were elected,  c>i whom six are members of the present cabinet���iiK&uding  the Minister of Labour. We feel that the continued refusal  of the.. Government to grant us what is now the common  possession of all other groups of employees in the Province  ���the right to Arbitration���forces us to seek the support of  a higher authority in our request���that of The People. Why  is it that Government Employees���who, serve jyou, the  public���are anxious to have this right of Arbitration?  Firstly.- The right of employees to cooperate with each  other and to bargain collectively with .their employers over  itheir conditons of work has existed for generations. This  right is now a civil right, guaranteed by. law to. all groups,  of organised employees in our Province, except us. This  right has developed over centuries and is deeply rooted in  our political and economic development. It has folowed  logically from"this that laws have been passed, enabling  employees and employers to submit their differences respecting wages and working conditions to conciliation and  arbitration  Secondly; in the pasty Provincial Goverrimeaits have  passed such legislation as: The Annual Holidays Act,  guaranteeing annual holidays; the Minimum Wage Act  .to provide a minimum wage; the Hours of Work Act, setting  forth the maximum hours that may be worked; and many  similar Act- regulating working conditions of employees.  The Government has also passed the Industrial Conciliar-  tion and Arbitration Act which provides the right to Con,  ciliation and Arbitration. All this legislation has been  passed by our Provincial Governments in the interests of  all employees in the Province, except. their own employees.  Why is this so? Because Section 35 of the Interpo-etation  Act places the Government above; the l^ws it legislates*'  Thus, white the Government can pass, and; has. passed,  legislation regulating the labour relations of alL orther. employers in the Province, it refuses to be bound by its own  laws in dealing- with its own employees. The B.C. Govern-  meiut Employees Association, representing 10,000 Government employees, feels that this is a.complete negation of  democratic " principles. We vbelieve���. and public opinion,  agrees���that what is good enough for all other employers,  should be good enough for the Government.  Thirdly: The right of arbitration has been extended' to  employees inv the industrial or. economic sector of four  economy. It has also been extended to all other groups of  employees who provide vital public services, such as���'  nurses, teachers, policemen firemen, employees of civic and  municipal governments, etc It has never been extended  * to Provincial Government Employees aithough they are.  prepared to forego the right to take strike action, in return  fcxr the Right to Arbitration with binding award.  The B.C. Government Employees Association feels that  this relegation of Government employees to a seco-sd-eLass,  , -eve! of citizenship is umfair and uiiwp^arited d^cripaina-  ��Lo_l Refusal.of the Government to act on our inquest for  ArMta^ation forces Ctover-unent employees to ^appeal to  fheir last court of resource���to you the1 people���for support in graining what is not merely a condition of employ.  taiWtfkj but; a, civil right We therefore asfcyou to. write or  wire your M.L.A. today, asking him to support, oa the floor .  of the I-egislature, th�� right of Goverhment employees to  Arbitration.

Anthony Gargrave ML A' for  Mackenzie,  Sir :  Wc, the. employees of the  Provincial Government, are the  ��� only group of employees in  BC. who are denied the risrht,  to Co> ciliation and Arbitration  This right of the worker, to.  bargain with his employer over  working conditions, is guaranteed as a civil right to all other  workers under Provincial Law  except, us- For several mo: ths  we have appealed to the Government to grant us; this right  ..which we have been seeking  from previous- Governments  for over five years. Our efforts  on behalf of some 10,000 Provincial Government employees  have m,et with refusal. The  present Cabiret's only ,action:  has been to suggest' hoisting  our request for a further six  months "to'-study, the principle". We rejected this on the  ground that we are only requesting recognition* of a cjvil  right which already is a matter  of principle-;���established. . by  law years ago-  ���   Om   February   5th   last   We  wired  the  Hon-   The  Premier  expressir g our disappointment  of, his   Government's  lack   of  . recognition   of' this   prin ciple*.  We also  stated that we were  prepared   to* participate   in  a  study of the application of the.  principle���  if  our   civil 'right  was   recognized    To   date   we  have not even had the courtesy  of a reply from the Premier-  Having thus had our rightful   request, ignored,   we   are:  now  placing jour  case   before  the  -high est. authority���the  people-   We   believe   that   the  people    of   British    Columbia  support, us  wholeheartedly  in  this deniaind.  The Industrial and Conciliation Act was passed, by our  Provincial Govemmens in the  interests of all employees in  this provnce���yet the Govemv-  menit refuses to he bound by its  own laws in dealing with its?  owtni employees- This is a complete relation of democratic  principles,   and  is  discriinina-  v  PAKHT-Vr.

We do not think so. Do  you? We dom't think you do  because when you were a candidate in* the last election you  expressed yourself in favour  of the principle of Arbitration  for Government employees in  answer to direct questions from  representatives of our Association- We would also point out  that 31 of the present government's candidates so expressed  themselves. Eleven of these  were elected, and of this i timber, six are now Cabinet mini  sters.  The time is long since passed  when, this injustice should be  righted without further delay-  We therefore publicly and respectfully appeal to you to  exert the influence of your  Legislative  office to this eind-  EP- O'Connor,  General Secretary,  B.C.

Saturday morning we went  o a-.tour of the Library, the  Heart of U-B.C "This library  is the fourth largest in Canada  with 300,000 books and 35,000  current magazines. Over a  thousand people can be seated  in the public rooms- The Library has facilities for getting any  book or magazine from anywhere; in; the world. Among  their collection of books is the  first volume ,of Samuel Johnson's Dictionary, printed in  1755, and Diderot's famous  Encyclopedia-  Mr. Haar spoke on\ the advantages    of   the   ���Uiiivejrsity  Extension plan am the fact that:  ���people-'.all over B-C. could take  a.dvai;jtage of   this' service   to  le'arni 'everything from how to  keep bees to getting a TJniver-  vsity degree.

Gage  told us that there.is every possibility   of   paying  your  way  through University if the student takes every advantage of ���  . the scholarships an/d bursaries  offered by the umiversity. An  e m pi o y ment   service   will  arrai ge   for   part-time   work  around the campus and a summer job too, if application  is  , made   early   enough-  Over   85  percent   of   thfei students  pay  their  way  in this manner-  The   resit" of  the   afternoon  .was spent irTa discussion group    picture"of the Vchoolin  of the vocation, of your choice.    }n Elphinstone.

The final event of the Conference, (and a very .important  one for most of us), was the/  final Dance. Later that night  we crawled out of Brock Hall  and over to the bus'-stop. True  we were tired, but we were  happy, thanks to the High  School Conference Committee  and U.B.C. for a wonderful  job!

Already   plajns   ar  made  for a dance on June 6th and a  Bazaar om the evening of July  15th. Perhaps these wily women  believe that,, by  having  their  bazaar at night,"'buyers will be  more plentiful wheim there are  baby-sittinig   papas   at   home.  Many   mothers   stay   at   home  during the day rather tha;n. tote  their little broods; along with  them.     .  The eleven hard-working  meaiib ei\s of . the organization.  have sent i?n. their first quarterly payment of the approximate  $600 required of Roberts Creek  to maintain. VON .service. The  amount not. acheived by house  to house camvassiiig oi ce axwi-u  ally isi raised by the two bazaars  and several damcesi''  Although these eleven workers are doirg a. grand job, very  successfully, .it-'would lighten  the load if a few more womejni  joined- in. The membership fee  is practically nil.  O: e of the latest fads noted  amoji/g the very young, is the  pierced ears and dangles. Re-  membei* when.' it was o; ly the  small daughters of Italian.immigrants who followed the  fashion, and our mothers were  already a_lo.wir.g-. the holes in  their ears to fill in,, covering1  ���them with the screw-on kind  of earrings;? Our mothers must  have been b a r b a r i a ,n: s we '  thought, as we! wildly backcombed our -side.hair to make  it bush out, matting it to such  an extent that .it, could be  combed out only after the  .weekly shampoo.  After the first "daring,  ard  .in many cases, 'fast*, girls cut  theiri hair..off,   the,rage   for  bobbed or. shing'led hair swept  the country.  This .style  must  have'been comfortable, profitable  or   becoming,   as   it   hast  lasted  a  long   time.   Obvious  make-itp, applied spottily with  a lavish hanch, was the order  of the day theni, but some 15  years ago 'the'- clean, scrubbed  soap a,nd water look came into  vogue. This ^school-girlish'in-  nioce^.ce  was somewhat  offset  by the glaring blob of lipstick  outlining   the    lipsi,    approximately, the blood-c ii r d I i n g  colors   beir g  repeated  in  the  lacouer used on the nails, filed'  aiwd tapered, to represent talons-  This style too, is still with us,  Sechelt  Hook & Ladder  TJie prominent place held by  matches among the causes of  loss by fire is understandable  when one considers the tremendous' use oe-iimakes of them-  In Canada each year about  320,000,000' book matches and  800,000 eases of wooden matches  are manufactured.  It sounds fantastic, but in  .the United States 850 million  matches are coTsnmed daily.  This means that in terms of  averages, approximately 600,  000 flames are started every  minute- Each of these flames  holds the possibility of causing  a disastrous fire.  Matches will always be dangerous u? less people are properly careful in using .them..The  careful use of matches means  that they are vot. to be played  with, but that if yon see a  match in; a place where it  might be exploded, Co?>. the  floor,) pick it up and put it  in-its proner place- Take matches away from small children.  It is up to you to control  the match- Remember that  "matches have heads, but ? o  brains" "When vou use their  heads,  use  YOUR  BRAINS-"  perhaps as a substitute for the  (long-forgotten hat pin" so useful as a weapon, in self-defence-  One wonders how the modern  athletic girls are going to make  out when the tight stavs and  smelling salt era returns. And  how they will take the switch  from strapless, fro.wtless, backless gowns to crinolines and  pantaloons.
