Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  Waterless Soil to Bloom in  mm mumy  Examining a soil sample in the Jordan Valley, a water development  expert; (left) gathers data on irrigation possibilities. The United  Nations Relief and. Works Agency for Palestine Refugees recently  agreed with the Kingdom of Jordan to provide $40,000,000 for  construction of an irrigation and power dam in the region. The  dry land, given water, might support up to 20,000 refugee families.  iltettts Now iQcxnfl^cted  !n lay Day Pprade  At the monthly meeting of the  Laldies Auxiliarl to Howe Sound  Branch 109, Canadian Legion,  held in the Legion Hall on the  17th, it was decided to enter a  float in the May Day parade,  arrangements to be made by  Mrs. A Jones. .. ���  A, donation was voted to the  B.C. Command Scholarship Fund  which distributed fifteen $200.00  scholarships at the beginning of  the curent school year, for University training.       ���,;  A model of the Legion Hall  showing improvements to be carried out in the near future, prepared by Jack Gordon, was on  view at the meeting, and it was  unanimously decided to give  octive support to the building  fund of the branch.    ;  A "Coronation" Tea, under the  convenorship of Mrs. T_. Wardil  was authorised, date' to be announced later. - < -  1 -��� -   ��� -  Gibsons Liberals  Appoint Delegates  The Liberal Association of  Gibsons held their regular  fnorithly meeting last weekt at  which reports were^ given upon  the Provincial Convention,.- by  the delegates and the secretary.  Aid account of" th/e\ .election of  At the regular meeting of the Gibsons Board of Trade in the  Mariner Cafe on Monday evening, the guest speaker was Bob Cook^  of the B.C. Power Commission, Sechelt. His talk was very informative, particularly to those members of the community 4who have  taken up residence here within the past few years.  He described the increase in  subscribers as being from 273 in   v-*^- 1 *  K1945 to 1427 now, and the construction of power lines as having increased from 37 miles in  1945 to over 100 miles now, and  more being added constantly.  Mr. Cook also gave a very  thorough coverage of the rate  structure for the district, illustrated with the use of charts.  His explanation included a comprehensive outline of the Power...  Pool, and how it helps in the  rate structure. '  One surprising fact was  stressed: that we here on the  Peninsula are one of the lowest  users of power per capita of any  hi the district under the B.C.  Power Commission.  The present output of power  at Clowhom Falls is 4000 horse  power, and the entire Peninsula  uses approximately 1000 horse  uses approximately 1000 horse  power. As the district grows, and ,  more people use more powers  the increased use would have  a bearing on the possible downward revision of the rate struc-  Tuesday>  Boucher was elected acting chairman. The blferk advised that such  delinquencies in ^payment of water rates and trades licenses as were  reported at the previous meeting had been cleared up, and that Mr.  McKibbin has agreed to clear up the matter of a building permit  upon hfs return to Gibsons.  The request of Mr. C. Smith  for a building permit was held  over until the full Boards were  present, since it would call for  an amendment to the Zoning  By-Law to establish business  premises in a residential area.  The clerk was requested to  send to the Minister of Public  Works a history of the case of  . flooding of certain properties on  District Lot 685, in reply to a  letter of .inquiry recieved from  hm regardng the case.  In the absence of Commissioner Schutz, the Clerk gave the  report of the progress of the  Water Works. The connections o*  mains etc. are now; completed  The suction tank at the Pump  house has been cleaned, 'and the  connections for, the new well  hooked in. The flow has been  measured . at something over  6000 gallons per hour. The capacity of the pumping unit has  been measured at approximately  2000 gallons per hour. The eoni-  crete storage tank at the pumping station is presently being  cleaned. "'     '"-'' -"V- '"'.-'.'.': '-���  The commissioners agreed to  act as requested by the May Day  Committee, Mr. DrummOnd to  act as escort for the May Queen,  and Mr. Boucher to escort the  .retiririg Queen hi the ceremonies.  A Mrs. Blain was present to  obtain an explanaton of the dif-  erences between (resident and  transient trades licenses, and the  possible posting of a bond in  lieu.  Accounts were received in the  amount of $1020.14, and were  ordered to be paid.,  Th<* sum of $15.00 was voted  by the commissioners for the  Canadian National Institue for  the blind.  .was given.  Notice was given of the ,Nom-  dnating Convention for the Mackenzie Riding, to be helcl at  Powell River, April 25th.        ��   /Delegates   are  Mr.   and  Mrs.  M. MacPhail, Mrl and Mrs. J.A.

It is expected ^that  the addition, of 30 Wrenettes toi  the North Vancouver Sea Cadets  who will lead the parade will  add a touch of glamour to an  Spring Campaign  Mapped out for V.O.N.  The Executive Meeting of the  Elphinstone Branch VON, was  held at the home of Mr. and Mrs..  A.E. Ritchey, Tuesday April 14,  Eleven members attending.  Details of the forthcoming  Campaign was mapped out, with  Convenors chosen to organize  collections in each part; of the  whole Peninsula.  Since the Government does  not intend to raise the grant ,the  appeal ,to the public is most  urgent.  The opening date of the Campaign is  set for Monday, May   already colorful day.

New Beauty Salon  Opens At Gibsons  On Tuesday, April 28th, the  girls of Gibsons and area will  find just one further opportunity  to care for their beauty. ��� .-  Mrs. Ivyette Fiedler announces the opening of a new Beauty  jSalon, at the premises of the  Fairways Service Station on the  Sechelt Highway, just below  Nina's Specialty Shop, west of  the Catholic Church.  Mrs. Fiedler operated her  business in England for twelve  years before -coming to Canada,  and has since that time been  licensed in B.C., and has been  in the business in Vancouver.  She has called her- Salon  'Ivyette's Beauty Salon*, and  looks forward to a long and busy  occupation of her shop,here.  Tony Gargrave  llth, It is hoped to make this a  greater success than ever, with  the Public growing ever more  conscious of the fine work  carried out by the nurse, Miss  Isobel Angus.  All other Groups and Clubs  are to be contacted to send a  Representative to the Board of  /the VON. that they may have  a better knowledge of the VON  work.  Next Board Meeting to be held  on April 28th, at the home of  Mrs. Wallis, Roberts Creek, at-  8 p;m. ���  Sechelt May Have  New Service Stafson  Large heaps of gravel and  building sand are being accumulated on the corner. This is the  beginning, it is said, of a super-  duner service station and automotive business, to take the  nlsce of the present Standard  Station on the opposite side of  the street.  CCF Candidate  To Start Meetings  Commencing May second,  Tony Gargrave, MLA, will commence a series of meetings in  the Mackenzie Riding, for which  he has been chosen candidate for  the CCF party. ���  At the first meeting in Gibsons on May 2nd, Mrs. Dorothy  Steeves, a former MLA, will be  guest spea'ker.  Mr. Gargrave speaks confidently of winning his seat in  this riding, basing his views  upon reactions already recieved  ^���pm his home area of West-  view and other parts of the large  riding which he has visited informally.  Mackenzie is the fourth largest constituency in the Province,  and after the meeting in Gibsons,  Tony will start his toiir of meetings over the 320 miles of its  length, commencing with the  more northerly area.  As he says, he will approach  his constituents seeking their  approval of his past work as  their renresentative in Victoria,  which he feels to have been  good, and as a member of the  CCF Party.  ture. 1  _,.. A very interested member*  ship extended a hearty vote of  thanks, and expressed the hope  that Mr. Cook will return again,  when the Board has digested the  really large amount of information he gave.  It was a matter of regret to  some of the Board Members that  there was such an amount" of  routine business before the guest  speaker took the floor that they  were unable to remain to hear  him. '-'���  Letters from Mr. Truman and  Constable. Morrison regarding  the Traffic problems created by  the use of the Highway by the  gchool students have resulted in  Constable Morrison's offer .to  obtain and run a film on Traffic  regulations, and to give a talk  at the Schooron the matter.'  A letter froni Tony Gargrave,  our M.L.A. stated that in spite  of his efforts, the grant in support of the VON would remain  at .$350.00, and that the net result from  his  discussions witb.  the Minister was the suggestion  that   a   system   of   fee   paying  visits might help.     ;  .

Gordon Ballentine reported oct  his attendance at the Good Roadsr  and Parks conference. He ex-  pl:iined that grants for this had  already been allocated, and that  since this area was the last one  that had applied, it was unlikely  that much could be done immediately. This association has  done a great deal on Vancouver  Island in having roadside park:  areas made, and there is hope  that in the future this area may  benefit from the Association's  work.  He also reported on his attendance at, the Vancouver Board  of Trade's Transportatiora  Bureau meeting. They had a resolution re: the securing of wayside camping areas and sites on  the^eninsula, owing/ .to the increased tourist travel.  The local Board of Trade instructed the Secretary to forward  from them a similar resolution*  to the B.C. Department of Lands  and Forests.

British Columbia.  t  tlomais  me on  Busses  As friends and supporters of the school students in this  area, we feel constrained to voice an opinion for what it is  worth.        "     ���  Any child who acts in such a manner as to be a danger to  himself, his fellows or tlie bus, should be disciplined severely.  The point is? who should do this? While on the bus the children  are, to all intents and purposes, in care of the driver. Upon his  skill as a driver the physical safety of the whole bus load depends.  In the dim past of our youth, school teachers were held  responsible for the behaviour of students while travelling- to  and from home. Parents considered themselves responsible for  the behaviour of their children, and in most instances, upheld  the measures taken to ensure the well-being* of students. School  bus drivers were empowered to enforce such standards of behaviour as were set up by School Boards, Teachers, and  Parents, working in harmony,     v  �� ^    If as seems the case now, parents are not willing to have  'ttieir children controlled, and as seems evident, are unable to  ^effectively control them themselves, it seems that the old form  of 'Discipline from within' might be applicable. The student  ; body, for its .own sake, could well institute a monitor system.  ^Offenders against suitable regulations laid down by the group  itself can well be dealt with from within the group. Few students can withstand two weeks of. 'Coventry', for example. Only  the students themselves can mete out this reward for disregard  for group well-being.  Now, in these years of mental growth, is the time for children to learn to live with ��their fellows. There must always be  some recognition of authority in life, and soi^ Adaption to it.'  If a child doesn't learn a reasonable amount of: self-discipline,  he will, through all his adult years, live in unhappiness^Eyery  time conditions demand submission to reasonable authority,  it. will seem to that child that 'LifeV is being unfair. He will  constantly be knocking his head against awall.  Greater than: that, however, is regard for the Aveil^being  of others. Self-restraint within limits can beVimmehsely valuable, and .thoughtfulness and courtesy, though old-fashioned  virtues, still are as rewarding to the one who possesses them  as to him who directly benefits from their practice.  For that child who has not learned billing co-operation,  we suggest, then group-discipline. ���  Federal Election  Will Be Expensive  This year's federal election  will be the most expensive in  Canadian history���and one of  the most illegal, according to  Blair Fraser, well-known Ottawa  writer and broadcaster. In an  outspoken article in MacLean's  Magazine, Fraser says that "the  great majority of our lawmakers  become lawbreakers in the very  act of being elected to make the  laws."  Most politicians would rather  risk a two-thousand-dollar fine  and two years in jail by disregarding the Canada Elections  Act than -publish a true statement of their campaign expenses,  the MacLean's   article   charges.  They won't acknowledge the  secret dollars that pad the paychecks of so-called "volunteer"  party workers who demand  more money each campaign.  "Election costs are rising in  all parts of Canada," Fraser  writes. "In 1935 a party leader's  national tour could be run for  twelve hundred dollars. In 1948  one leader's tour cost nearly  twenty thousand. The cost if  living hasn't risen  that much."  Where's the money_ coming  from, Fraser says big sums are  donated by companies, who expect concrete returns in the form  of government contracts. But,  -he adds/ officials deny "that  .^Ottawa plays favorites. He  quotes one veteran politician as  saying, "Anybody who gives  money to the federal party and  hopes to get it back is a fool."  Twenty one representatives of  Canadian Legion branches at  Powell River, Pender Harbour,  Sechelt, Roberts Creek, and Gibsons, met in the Legion Hall  Sechelt, on Wednesday evening,  April 15th to hear reports and  to elect a Zone Commander, and  Secretary for the next two year  term.  Completing over four years as  Zone Commander, Robt. - Macnicol presented a progress report  covering activities at Provincial  and Dominion levels. Increase  in membership in British Columbia and throughout Canada was  reported, but it was also pointed  out that many veterans who had  gained increase in -��� disability  pensions, as the result of efforts  of the Canadian Legion, had  failed to join the organization.  The Zone Commander said  that a magnificent victory had  been recorded in the matter of  obtaining an increase in the  basic rate' of disability pensions,  but that the government had yet  to do the fair thing in so far as  recipients of war veterans .are  concerned.  The branches of the local zone  were congratulated upon their  activities in taking care of the  problems of veterans and their  dependents in their respective  districts^'  With2^180 ;branchesj and   136  ladies 7 auxiliaries h^the- ?rov  ince!-���of :fBritish Columbia, Mr.  MacriicoL saidv�� that^ B.C; was  second in Canada for membership in the Legion, and had  maintained that position over  many years. Ontario with a  larger population occupied top  position. -  Andy Johnston of Sechelt  and Hugh. McPhalen of Powell  '.River ^renominated for posi-���'-  tion of Zone Commander, Robt.  Macnicol   retiring   Commander,  declining nomination, as he was--  fctill   a   member  of  pominion  Council.  In requesting that his  name be withdrawn from nomination, Mr. Johnston explained  that   his   re-election   as   President   of:   Sechelt    and   District  Branch kept him busy in Legion  . activities. Mr. McPhalen was  elected; Zone Commander for the  next two years.  Ralph!: Cotton, now President  of Roberts Creek branch declined nomination as secretary  and Mr; R;R. Craig of Powell  River was elected to that position.  A hearty vote of thanks was  accorded to Robt. Macnicol and  Ralph Cotton for services rendered to the Zone during the  past four years.  The host branch-Sechelt was  thanked, for providing refreshments.  Party organizers admit that  political machines are expensive  and corrupt, especialy In Quebec  and the Maritimes. Blair Fraser  suggests Canadians aren't so rich  that they can afford to throw  money down the election cam^  paign drain. ;  1  BPJP  . The Girl Guides' Cookie Week  starts April 24th.

It came because B.C. has plentiful  natural resources, abundant power, a supply of labor, transportation by land, air  and sea, and proximity to ^world markets.  STILL MORE IMPORTANT was the confi.  deuce investors had in the political climate  which existed in British Columbia. Without  governments which encourage free enterprise, sources of investment money on the  scale needed by British Columbia simply  /.dry -up.  ���  Ey no stretch of the imagination could  we foresee investment capital being  poured into this province should there;-be  a Socialistic government in power.   _  Why? Because no one in; his right mind  would   build   up   a   prosperous    business;  where a Government was talking of social-"  izing all the important payroll'industrres.  The result? Business would STAY AWAY/  from British Columbia, and with it would  go   the   source   of   jobs   so   necessary   for  cur prosperity.

The steady increase in taxes,
both direct and indirect, must
unfailingly be a matter of grave
concern to many people, especially perhaps, those in the low
income brackets who are finding
it more and more difficult to
make i ends meet. A fairly large
proportion of the direct taxation
seems to be caused by education
costs; many reasons for the advance in these costs haye been
suggested; among others, it has
been stated; by some of those in
high authority that considerable
money has been, and is being,
spent on "frills". It is proposed
by these high authorities that
such frills be dispensed: with,
and 'thereby savings effected;/"
Certainly such a proposal appears to be; worthy of the most
care ful study. However, r-have
been unable to learn just what
part, or parts, of the educational
system are to be deemed "frills",
or where the eliminations and
resultant savings would begin,
or end. ;'■ ■l^''^}-^ x-■■':,■■.■'..v -■■;^:-'c...
I understand ^t^t: no less an
authority; than the Minister of
Education failed to defme-these
frills^=\wje^i-questioned ^ in the
Legislature.' itjiniay perhaps be
assumed that a beginning has
been made by dispensing with
the s e r v i c e s of a long-time
official of the curriculum and,
text-book branch of the Department. But this at most is probably only a. .beginning; there
niust be many other activities
which are costing money, and of
which we have no need.
It has occurred to me that
perhaps ,one might compare
present-day educational facilities with those of my school days
and reach some conclusions as
to the items .that we could dd
without; as I went to school in
this same district I am in the
position of being able to compare facilities now with those
of my school days; and as those
^days were about half a century
ago, I will be able to examine
dhe question with a similar
view-point to those authorities
who have repeatedly mentioned
the matter of frills. To begin
with:
TRANSPORTATION:
This is costing the taxpayer
a good deal of money. In my day '
we walked anywhere up to three
or four, miles, through dust, mud
or snow, along such roads as
there happened to be. True, we

school soaking wet, and sat in

those clothes until they dried.
Not very comfortable, and perhaps not very healthy. But that
doesn't matter.
JANITOR SERVICE
AND HEATING
In my day the sweeping up,
etc., was done by the teacher and
and bigger girls*. Heating was by
a box-stove in trfe corner of the
room; the teacher lit the fire and
the boys carried in tjie wood.
Now huge sums are spent on
janitors and heating plants; these,
could be saved by a heater in
every room. True the firing of
a wood heater is likely to cause
plenty of dust and. dirt; heat is
likely to be^ erratic/yery hot for
..a few minutes and then getting
top cold; in cold weather the
'room is likely to be near freezing point most- of the morning;
pupils near the stove may roast,
while those// in// the /far corner
may be very epldg;(fenger of fire
to the building, arid consequent
irisk' to the pupils is very greet.
But that doesn't'':matter, p
HEALTH SERVICES
:   Much work is /spent on den
tistry, physical examinations,
and work to reduce the incidence
of communicable'disease. In my
day such waste was not even
considered. A pointy since lost
Sight of. or ignored,A was then
realisically understood, that the
boys, at any rate,-would soon be
going to work, probably in' the
woods- Their health was of little
importance, as it was very likely
that they would soon meet with
an accident that would permanently cripple, or kill them; so
there   was   no   need   to  worry

HOUSE CANVASS IS TO  HOUSE TO  BE  District Registrar, Mackenzie Electoral District  Powell River, B.C.  :&;r\<-'*^ti^z;y��� ���+*&wtn*stei}��u> j>ji����Mwi-KCf-'  The Coast News      Thursday April 23, 1953  was the INSPECTOR. Now  stress is placed on teaching  ability and training; inspection  of the. teaching is almost a con-  tinous policy; men and women  in teaching and inspectors positions spend much time studying  teaching methods in this and  other countries, and there is continual exchange of information  and opinion; much time is spent  in discussions with business  and industrial people to learn,  as well' as possible, the. final  result of all this education, in  other words, how do the graduates fit into the economic world  when through with school; as  more is learned, and as the economic conditions of the country  continually change, changes are  made in ,our curriculum and  teaching methods to try to more  nearly meet the apparent need.  But to do all this, to get the  type and ability of personnel  necessary "for such, teaching and  supervision, vast sums are spent  in salaries.       h  It might be well to dispense  with all this fol-de-rol, and save  ,a great part of the expenditure.  Of course, the pupils would  likely^ be far less fitted .to cope  with the--demands of the modern)  high-pressure industrial and economic world, but that doesn't  matter.  The above probably does not  point out all the frills that might  well be eliminated, but it is at  least a start in that direction;  Some one more able can take it  from here. On the other hand,  there may be some who would  be inclined to disagree with some/  of the suggestions. But th���t  doesn't matter.-',!     v  (Continued from Page 3)  about theirhealth. Quite possibly  the parents of present-day  school children would not like  to face such propects, and would  wish that every effort be made  to preserve their children's  health. But that doesn't matter.  RECREATION AND SPORTS  In my day, we played hide-  and-go-seek, and another sort  of tree-top tag (which resulted  in several broken arms.) No  money was wasted on ball-  grounds, playing fields, gymnasiums, etc.. Neither was time  spent on such non-essentials as  music, except, that the teacher  usually got up a song for us to  render at the annual Christmas  Tree.  One of the boys, a real genious,  was the proud possessor of a  mouth-organ. But the virus infection of wasting of money was  beginning to be indicated even  then, for just about the time I  left school the trustees��bought .  p second-hand organ. I think I  jremember it cost thirty dollars.  Present day children show  the excellent results of good  physical training; in both vocal  ., and instrumental music they  give plentiful evidence of hard  study and practicing, and the  work of good instructors. They,  their parents, and many others  would likely be sorry to see the  facilities for such activities  ended. But these things cost  jmon ey. Some of the people  would not like to have it ended.  But that doesn't matter.  CURRICULUM  In my day we had- the three  Rs (or at any rate part of them.)  Now much time and money is  ppent on subjects like geography,  current   history,   social  studies,  -.elementary  physics,  and  a hist  Of other subjects which are not  likely to be needed by the aver-  jage laborer or his wife. There  seems to be a tendency to ignore  ��� 'a  realistic  view of the  proper  (destiny of the children, that of  growing up to be hewers of wood  land drawers of water.  True, in the modern world  there are many positions that  require the type of education  inow being attempted, but it  Should be remembered that there  ere plenty of children of the  wealthy classes to fill these  better paid jobs, and enjoy that  higher standard of living. ".  The parents of such children  can afford, if necessary to send  their boys to such private  schools as they wish to get the  necessary training to fit them  lor the higher paid brackets. Of  Course some of the ordinary  children might like to be aisle  to compete for these better jobs,  but that doesn't matter.  TEACHING   STAFF  AND   SUPERVISION  In my day a girl or boy who  managed   to  get  through  high,  end put in a year at Normal, was'"  considered   quite   competent   to  direct the youthful intellect.  About once a year an old boy  (with a goatee, I remember) visited the school for an hour.
