There is plenty of evidence that Sechelt has been a  thriving community of the Salish  Indians from  time  immemorial.

Is is hoped  that no confusion or consternation has arisen over this misstatement.  For many weeks now we have been hearing about Spring-  being "Just Around the Corner". To many pf us, it seems that  some one is moving the corner, and as each week or. quarter  of the the moon rolls around, we still haven't caught up with  evanescent Spring.  A check of the Calender shows Easter to be rather late  this year. From time immemorial, it has been said by those  who know that a late Easter means a late Spring. All manner  of data is quoted in support of this idea.  It may be that those who originally} fixed Easter, or long  before that, the Festival of Spring, which proceeded the  Feast of the Passover by many generations, knew more, or  were more weather-wise than present day authorities admit..  The date of the observance of Easter- depends on the  phases of the moon. Easter Day is the first Sunday after the  full moon falling upon, or next after, the twenty-first day of  March. Should this occur on a Sunday. Easter Day is the  ���Sunday after that. y  Be that as it may, Easter arrives this week end. Easter's  religious significance, the Recreation, the Renewal of life, is  . the one which is observed in some form by all peoples of the  earth. By Christian peoples it calls for a renewal of faith, a  re-acceptance of belief in the promise of a hew life to follow  the eclipse we call "Death".  If the old ideas still hold good, Spring should truly be  here, and with it our revival of health and work as well as  Faith. ''......  If ever Easter becomes a fixed date, where will the  weather prophets be then?  and as Sechelt was not a large j  band, everybody took to the  brush and made for the other  beach to get away in canpes. ^ .  These raids by northern tribes  came at certain times of the  year, and constant watch was  kept so that due warning was  given.

We would like to point out to the people of  Roberts Creek that it would be of greater value to the growing boys of the Community if some of the men could see their  way clear to sacrifice the odd evening to helping out with  this movement than by many another thing they* could do  for them.  The making of citizens starts early, and the Scout movement is recognized as one of the 'besjtl helps a young boy can  have in his steps up the ladder to good citizenship.  If the men, and mostly the fathers of these same boys,  will give just a few minutes thought to the matter, we are  sure that they will no longer be short of the required number  for their Council.

It would be natural  that our villagers would see the  Spanish ships of sail in the Gulf,  and would have no inkling that  they were the harbingers of the  curse and scourge that was  eventually to decimate1 them, to  tlie vanishing point. That they  have survived is no' credit to us,  and perhaps now that they seem  to be increasing, their path will  blend with ours for better or  worse. Finding out things such  as the three chiefs, going to  Westminster by canoe to ask the  Oblate Fathers to come to their  village, upset my ideas that the  Fathers came in and took over.  This was in 1875, and Father  Durien. and Father Fouquet  came up to Sechelt and started  the Mission which has steadily  grown from that time on.  There were times up Toba  Inlet when these men were a  godsend to us, as some of our  experiences with the. braves  Vv ere hair raising, and I was  glad to leave it to the Fathers  to get things back to normal  My hat is off to them, especially  Father Norman.  The canoes, big and small,  were the means of travel, and  the Indians were .at their best  ir-i handwork, when making1,  canoes. The stretching of a canoe  for beam was a remarkable feat  of skill, and required a great  deal of patience.

Save *20 tO $30 pay only *|f per week  See "Live" Demonstration at Our Store AT ONCi  Phone Your Hardware Number: 32, Gibspns  by Cherry Whitaker  To the one hundred and twenty  two and a half people who, in  this past week have asked if I  passed the "Driver's Test, I can  now say "Yes"., Through the  grace of God, the kindly in-%  stincts of the examiners* and a  strongly . developed instinct for  self-preservation (inherited  fromj ay long line of hardy Scots)  I am the relieved possessor of  bright purple stamp marks on  the dog-eared license.  Fortunately, as a result iof  stopping at the office to get the  ."invitation card" and arriving  at the seat of judgement minus  my driver's license, I lapsed, oni  return, into such a state of dejection that I relaxed considerably. There didn't seem too  much sense in getting .eager-  beaver about something I wasn't  going to be allowed to do. Anyone clueless enough to missplace  necessary documents at such a  crucial moment simply couldn't  be classified asy aything but a  menace on the road.  Then, when I spotted the  question about how many inches  etc. is a fog light I was very  happy that Grade 10 hadn't sold  his bicycle ��� it was a cinch  that mother was going to need  it in future. That question on  fog has beaten me for; two years.  I forget it as fast as I learn it.  As for as I can see the only  solution is < to buy.. a fog ligpti  and have it affixed to the- ^��  measuring it every day for pr^ef  tise, or. to refrain from having  j anything to do with fog in a  concrete form. The stuff that  blows in and out of my head,  doesn't come under the jurisdiction of the Motor Vehicle  Branch.  In   the   question  part   of  the  test   there   is   one   question   I  really like, the answer in effect  being that the impact of a car  travelling at 60 miles per hour  produces  the   same   damage   as  it would if dropped off a building 120 feet high ��� it isn't the  idea of hitting something at 60  that reduces me to hysteria because   I   feel   that   only   flight  from an  invading  army would  induce me to drive over 45, it's  the mental picture of any donkey  who would  drop   a   car   off  a  building  120 feet high to find  out if that statement is correct.  Don't tell me its all calculated  mathematically ��� its- more interesting, the  other  way.  The road test was carried out  along the requested route. Being  quite certain that it -would be  the last time ear and I would  travel together I drove with due  care and caution, treating the  car with loving respect, silently  hoping that her ������ new driver  would be as understanding  about peculiarities, I think she  Thursday.,  15  1j54 I he C-jsI 2ie^s  must have known that this  wasn't just any old trip to Porpoise Bay because she behaved  like a lady all the way, instead  of galloping over to the wrong  side of the road to avoid the  biggest potholes. Neither did she  lap tlie examiner up through  the roof going through them.  We returned, trotted obediently back to the starting post  to await the verdict. In the  twinkling   of   an   eye   I   found  myself outward bound clutefrin^  the  MVB's  official  seal of ai_>-  proval.

Mr. and Mrs  James Beaton in for three or  four days catching up with revisiting old friends, also son  Kenneth with his lovely family  ���and an incidental check with  the doctor who proclaims all is  well.  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Chaster  in to look over the Easter bonnets. Jules Mainil in to see  what's cooking.  Mrs. Johnny Thorn in to have  a look at the family while husband Harry awaiting her return.  From Victoria comes Miss  Maria Dykes and Brother Joe,  to visit Mr. and Mrs. James  Dyke's. Acting as a spring tonic  <the two visitors have livened  things up considerably, both Mr.  and Mrs. Dykes looking and  feeling the better for their visit.  Daughter Clara Coles up to  check on her Ma and Pa at  Stronlochie.  Larry Hamilton, recently down  from Port Churchill, visiting his  Dsd oh the Reid Road for a  week or two, busy re-organizing  and adjusting things to his  liking while sister Pat Macintosh looks on astounded .as  her housewifely ��� efforts' are  spurned by the males in her  life.  Mr. and Mrs, Lloyd Elrick  having a hurried look around  at their sylvan rendezvous.  All we want now is a little  warm co-operation from the  weatherman for a nice sunshiny  Easter week-end to encourage  the visitors, so here's keeping  our fingers crossed.  nastiest reply possible.  I should think that a person  with enough brains to think up  such a suitable nick-name  should also have the brains to  keep such- sarcastic and scandalous  ideas   to themselves.  You've thrown every dirty  punch you could at our chool  and the students in it, but only  under a false name. Why don't  you bring it out in the open  That way, we'll have a chance  to tape the negative side of your  debate.  I admit that some of us students do like Mickey Spillane,.  but we don't put it in the same  literary category as the Bible  and Shakespeare. That was a  pretty low and rotted blow,  Cynical.  About having a smoking room  in school: May I remind you,  Cynical that school isn't just for  teaching us Maths and Sciences.  It also teaches us to become  good citizens. Right now, whenever a student wants a cigarette,  he or she has to sneak into the  bushes or someplace, because  it's not allowed. Is this the road*  Sechelt  Hook & Ladder  In the forefront of the news  these days are the,A bomb and  the Hydrogen' bomb. While the  probability jo�� jSefchelt Penin*  sula being .ibomfocd is rather  remote there is always the possibility of some pilot mistaking  the light of Selma Park or Gibsons for the city of Vancouver.  So for the benefit of those who  have not experienced them here  is how bombs cause fires.  Incendiary bombs burn when  they hit, or they explode and  throw burning material over  large areas. High explosive  bombs cause fire indirectly by  breaking pipesjL sihor.t cirieuJLt-  ng electrical wiring and upsetting stoves, furnaces and lamps.  The A bomb is both a super-  explosive and a fire bomb on  a large scale. The atomic bomb  set off over Hiroshima, carried  by clnie) plane> delivered the  punch of 325 tons of high explosives and 975 tons of fire  bombs. Its fire effect was three  times its blast effect. The first  effect of an atomic bomb is a  heat, flash.'This spreads out in  every direction from the ball  'of fire at the centre of the  is hotter than the surface of  the sun. The heat flash that  comes from. it lasts only about  three seconds*, but that is  enough to set fire to paper, cloth  rubbish and dry wood. It also  is long enough to burn people  unless they are protected from  to take to good citizenship    If the flash. Right on the heels of  so,  why  don't  they   just  teach  the   students to   sneak   around  without being caught    I assure  you,    smoking    room    or    no  smoking    room,     they're  going to smoke. *_,���  Calling us enervated students  makes me feel that you are ..a  little weak in places yourse'f,  even though your grammar does  show signs of good education.,  But then again, education isn't  everything, a ., stupid person  could go a long way on th&.  ability to be able to underetand.'  If you don't agree with what  I've written here,   then maybe  the flash comes a blast wave  which causes fires by knocking  down chimneys, wrecking heaters and breaking electric wires.  stiJJL Fires would spring up for miles  around.
