Indians receive  less than half of what other Canadians receive   per month. '  On unemployment the meeting  decided to ask for more money  from ������.. the Indian Affairs .branch  so as to. lengthen the period during which winter works could be  accomplished.  Sliamon, Church House and  Squirrel Cove bands joined the  Sechelt Band council in signing  the resolution asking for full  liquor rights for Indians.

Sechelt brief on education compared  Sechelt water decision  The Public Utilities Commission decision on the Sechelt Waterworks application for a 50 percent boost in rates now charged should  not be surprising. ~r. ���;- -  While rate demands generally are on the upswing not many go  as far as to seek a 50 percent boost. It does seem out of the ordinary  to see a rate not usually regarded as being easy on the pocket put  in a bracket high in anyone's budget. However the P.U.C. decided  to reject the petition. At the same time it left the door ajar for the  waterworks system, owned by Union Properties which is a carryover  from the days of Union Steamships. The present rate runs about $35  per household monthly and a 50 pecent incease would make the rate  about $52. Considering* the nature of the system this rate is high.  While the system is effective it is by no means modern and will require quite a bit of reconstruction if the village of Sechelt and surrounding area builds up considerably.  Main complaint of the village council in its submission to P.U.C.  concerned administration financing and the P.U.C. noted this and  sided with Sechelt council maintaining costs could be reduced, Administration costs of more than $2 per month; for each customer is high  when comparing it with other systems. The P.U.C. notes the rerun*  which the waterworks would get under the rate asked would be about  8 percent. As the P.U.C. decision points out it does appear in the face  of circumstances to be high.  The decision suggests the waterworks company/should pay closer attention to other ways of effecting economies or increasing the u  financial return without seeking a 50 percent rate increase. The fi-  Bance structure of any organization is of paramount "consideration  where rates have to be charged and if the Sechelt Waterworks structure can be revised to get the cost of any increase to the lowest possible sum, those having to pay the rates will be happy.  (By   GEORGE COOPER)  Developing the character of  our young people, training them  to be' good citizens, and teaching them the fundamental skills  of learning needful in adult life  ��� these are the aims of education in British Columbia stated  by our own department' of education. Very worthy aims, very  aspiring, but controversial In  two respects; namely, the part  the school plays and the means  of  makings these  aims effective.  The Chant commission concluded that promoting intellectual  development is the real object  of our schools. And in arriving  at that, the commissioners made  such realistic statements of philosophy as did our own Sechelt  committee in its brief which was  a co'mbination of the efforts of  teachers, school trustees and  other citizens of School District  No.   46. . ���..     ..   ,   ,  VThe Sechelt brief- set out' the  following  principles:  that  every  man's child be profitably educated, that learning be stressed,  that each individual master the  subject matter to" his utmost limit, that individual effort be encouraged by an acceleration  program, and that practical and  vocational training be a sideline  to academic   learning.  The Chant commission offers  in its reorganization of the school  system a means to educate ev-v  ery child to his limit. The distinct 'academic and vocational  channels the commission" calls  for eliminate the need for any  acceleration -device and take  care of the student often retarded in the  elementary -school.  Generally in the interpretation  of philosophy into practical  means the Sechelt brief and the  Chant report are very much in  agreement although, of course,  the recommendations of the commission  may  not be  what, our  mittee on which teachers are  represented, to supply information to all interested persons,  the commission's report deals  with the same matter extensively, quoting from several briefs  typical of the opinions held. Research, the commission finds,  covers a scope too wide for the  present .department branch to  handle. Research in1 schools by  teaching staffs, surveys, province  wide, by the department,, investigations of broad practical interest #by the College of Education, which are -generally sporadic and often unscientific, led  the commission to.' recommend  that a unit in the department assemble and consolidate the accumulations of Information now  available in several branches of  the department.

It can shoot at planes near its territory  but other countries must refrain from shooting at Russian planes  aver non-Russian territory. Moscow loves monopolies.

If we could pull the plug and let Mr. K. and his followers go down \j  ibe drain, what would we do with all those people who would be out  of- work such as commentators on radio and TV, United Nations  security guards and thousands of others. Perhaps it might be better  'to lei the gravitational forces of the diplomatic world allow the situation to simmer down through the months and years to come.

Capt. Cook's stay at Nootka  Sound as mentioned in the  previous article had been long  enough; in" duration for crew  members to ^discover the-fact  that the Indians there wore a  fur of excellent quality, that of  the sea-otter. Word of this fact  carried with them to Britain,  with the'^result that the years  following f(!saw. mercantile enterprises directed towa^ our  55ast.   ' '.-.  ' ���: j- ���'.'������ ���.  In 1787, Captain Berkeley,  an English seaman sailing under   the  Portugese   flag,   dis-  ... covered a passage immediately  to the north of Cape Flatter^.  In tihje following year iti-'ex-  - istenice was confirmed by Captain John Meares, who named  it after "its original discoyerier,  Juan de Fuca." Apparently  Meares was;aware:$>!. the ���story  of the Greek, but; unaware of  the 1750 map of Delide.  One of his boats entered the  strait  and,  sailing   northward  for     30 leagues,  took  formal  possession  of  the 'surrounding  lands in the name of the King  of   England. ��� In   his   Voyages,  ^Mearesife wrote i^^ast^-he,; pecjg^  murucated his; discovery'^Wrthff(^  captain  of the Washington,   a  London trader, who completed  the voyage through this strait  and sailing "through a sea thaj  extends  upwards of. eight  degrees of latitude," returned to  the   Pacific"   Ocean.  This wa|  the  first  authenticated voyage .  which  demonstrated theT existence of Vancouver Island.  In 1792 the Spanish explorers .Galiaho ; and Valdes compiled the first charted; map  of our part of the 'coast, which-,  they' based on observations  made during the year before ;  by Jose Marie Narvaez of the  Santa Saturriia.- On this map  the Strait of Georgia was named Canal de Rosario; .Burrard  Inlet, Canal de Sasamat; Howe  Sound, JBocas del Carmelo, and  Jervis 'Ihlet, Bocas de Maz-  zeredo. -  Captain George Vancouver,,  ^ho arrived at Nootka in the  year of this map'st publication  to settlef^the dispute between  Spanish and British claims on  tfce riiiddle Pacific coast, chang-j  ed the first four features to  their" present names, but left-'---'-  Texada and Lasqueti Islands  as originally named.

They were surging urgently  along in single file in long undulating dives, gazing steadily  westward. My first thought was  of dolphins, or maybe a sea serpent!   What a thrill!  At this time when far-seeing,  nien begin to realize the sad effect of the extinction of so many  of our native species of birds  and animals, it is to be hoped  that our local hunters,, fishermen and trappers will stay their  hands at the sight of these now  rare predators, and allow them  to survive and increase, even at  the cost of a few salmon or duck.  J. F. Roy.  of name was made by Captain  Richards, RN, in 1865. Vancouver's chart also shows Burrard  Inlet as Burrard's Canal, Howe  Sound as Howe's Sound and  Jervis Inlet as Jervis's Inlet.  Howe Sound was harried  after Admiral Earl Howe and  Jervis) Inlet after Rear Admiral  Sir John Jervis. In 1797 Sir  John was created Earl St. Vin-  >cent, a ."'name.', later given to  St. Vincent Bay. We thus now  have two;:'aajaceht pieces of  water named rafter the same::  man.    ���'}-~fy��M:44:' - '^-' "  Capt. Vancouver named only  two islands in. Howe Sound,  Anvil and Passage,; the first  because of its suggestive ap-.  pearahce< and the, second because a line';extended south- ���  .ward beyond it from: Anvil Island would clear the sand bars  off Point Grey.  The only other local geographic names designated by  Captain Vancouver were Point  Atkinson and Gower Point.  This latter name appears on  his chart as Pt. Gore, but that  would appear to be a spelling  error, for source of the name  has been traced to Captain Sir  Erasmus Gower. R.N. Time,  (however, has altered its loca-  the entraitce to the Sound, now  known as Dougall Point.  Accompanied by the Spaniards Galiano and Valdes in  the schooners Sufil and Mexi_  cana, Vancouver, with the  ships Discovery and Chatham,  passed close to this shore on  his way north. Of it 'he says  in his journal:  "At  four  o'clock  on Saturday morning the 16th we resumed our course to the northwestward along the. starboard  or. continental shore of the gulf  of Georgia  which  from point.  Gower takes a direction about  WNW   and    affords   a    more  pleasing   appearance  than   the  shores of Howe's Sound. This  part of the  coast is  of mode-  ' rate  height "for  some , distance  inland, ahd it frequently juts  out into low sandy projecting ���  points. The country in general  produces  forest' trees in great  abundance and of some variety-  and    magnitude;    the pine   is  most  common and the woods  are    little    encumbered    with  bushes    or   trees   of   inferior  growth  . . .  ."  From the last sentence suggests that Captain Vancouver  either came ashore himself or  had fairly precise information  ning board to assess the changing needs of ' the public school  system .and propose plans' in  keeping with those needs. The  remainder of the brief dealt with  such matters within the school  as courses or subjects and teachers' 'duties.  In,the section-in the report on  curriculum ���the co~mmission  quotes'/the''Sechelt brief to support its own recommendation to  abandon the cyclic or spiral of  learning'principle and to use instead the principle of mastery of  courses 'of! instruction at each  grade level. Cyclic learning, in  which greater penetration of a  " subject takes place with successive courses has only led to overlapping of content and even to  needless repetition.  The Sechelt brief condemned  the elementary school readers  as sterile exercises' in, the mechanical skill of reading. Allusions  and^refSrences^ignored/ 'the'r exhilaration of our literary heri-  . tage from a score of homelands  is^uhknown to many pupils. It. is  inv the elementary grades that  fantasy is developed; ignored  there, - literature in the high  school will be a barren field to  the, pupil. The report, in the section oh textbooks;, points out that  many briefs emphasize the lack  of literary' skill and appreciation  on the part of many pupils, and,  the commission feels, such a lack  may well be attributed to the  kind of school reader the Sechelt brief condemns.  In a great many of the school  subjects investigated the Sechelt  brief was quoted by the commission.  Where the brief, recommended  grades 7 and 8 be returned to  the elementary school, for instance, the commission recommends this only for grade. 7. The  commission feels there are no  grounds for acceleration in the  schools system and that retardation will generally be dealt with  in the reorganization of the  school system. The Sechelt brief  recommended acceleration from  grade 4 on for ths capable and  social promotion ior the pupils  unable to achieve a set standard.  The Sechelt recommendation  of drill for mastery iu arithmetic  is supported by rer'i1^ of departmental surveys.

Like .the Sechelt  brief the", commission also recommends Russian, but only  when qualified teachers are available. In .the reorganized, school  system a language would be available, as an elective as early  as grade 8. The Se^'ielt brief recommended the beginning of  language study in Grade 7.

The attorney-general contends that the;  author's .market profits for the  seven years covered by the book  were only $216,000.  Even that, modest amount,  earned in addition to regular  professional income, is not to  be sneezed at. It is equivalent  to something more than $30,000  a year. If Mr. Darvan were using an exaggerated story of his  own prowess.-'for the purpose of  pushing .the sale of a speculative stock, there might be a legitimate complaint; but exaggeration seems to be the only fault  against him. If. that. is. .to be  made a crime, many other authors should be '.shaking inj then-  shoes, : not to speak i of: fishernren,  hunters, 'politicians and: writers  of advertising' copy.     : ,;  It is questionable; v.'whether  such books do any great: public  harm, if they are true accounts  or. false.

McCoU  AN   EVENING OF ONE-ACT PLAYS  ADULTS 75^ STUDENTS 25^  Duo-pianist  Medleys in  fine form  The Medleys, a husband and  wife duo piano team, supplied  the final Overture Concert event  of this season Saturday night in  Elphinstone auditorium and filled out another excellent season  and specifically, an evening of  top-notch   entertainment.  They played ' through music  from Bach" to an arrangement, of  their own from the Broadway  musical Oklahoma, leaving the  desire in some people that they  should play on some more.  Bach's pastoral Sheep May  Safely Graze opened the program and the warm tone of the  fine pianos coupled with a sensitive touch revealed their artistry.  The second Bach number,  Fugue in G Minor, was lightened  with the explanation from the  stage that one view of a fugue  was that the entry bf the voices  in the fugue came one at a time  while the audience left two at  a time. However none of the audience arose during the playing  of this fugue which required a  two-piano setting to bring out  its fullness.  The Saint-Saens Variations on  a Theme by Beethoven gave the  French composer plenty of scope  for some fine variations which  in turn gave the Medleys ample  room to display their capacity  for mastering this work by two  masters.  The Chopin Rondo in C Major  Opus 73, written, so the program  related, when Chopin was 18,,  lived >up to - expectations as a  work by the young Chopin and  also in the delightful manner in  which the Medleys caught the  . delicacy;:-of J;expression required.,  ^he Darius Milhaud Scarar  mouche with its lively opening  . movement and quieter middle  section, really caught the fancy  of the audience in the samba of  the final Brazileiro. It carried  one along to thei point/where ah  encore oT part of the number  was necessary, ^i^-.-v, ���;'���.-��,  The���'" 'Saint-Saeris ; Danse   Mqfv  cabre did hot fail to supply the  clanking   and  rattling   of   skeletons in a.,graveyard.

In  this connection he mentioned the  Columbia River Hydro Project  that/ would produce electricity  for this population increase and  redistribution:  In regard to government, man-,  agement, and labor, Mr. Finnerty said that they must work together to keep the great Indus-:  trial possibilities of B. C. within i  the boundaries   of the  province,  but 'primarily it was up  tb7 the  citizens^ 'of    British!

So much of modern education   is directed  toward preparing' boys and girls  not to live, but to earn a living  There is so little training of  their minds and spirits to use  their leisure time in a truly  creative way.  A parent who loves beauty  has a chance to kindle a love  of poetry and of the other arts  which add to the wonder of  life.  This is a utilitarian aga  when the value of every vocation, even that of poets, is  questioned. When T. S. Eliot,  the' British * poet, was asked  "What,are poets good far?" he  mentioned three ways in which  they were useful: they can preserve beauty and integrity of  the language ,they can be entertaining and they can make  readers aware, from time, to (  time a little~"more aware."-  Our children may never be:"  come outstanding poets or  leaders. But they will be hap-,  pier, more mature adults if  they have seen the unseen,  world through the eyes' of the.  poet.

There has f been much, discussion in the press about parliamentary deportment on the floor  of. the legislature. Often debate  becomes heated and harsh/words  are exchanged.

C; Bennett, and  the character of the leader of  the opposition, Robert: Strachan.  Our premier is an ambitious man  with a strong drive for power.; He  will, on /��ccasions,y bully members and bully the house. Opposing him is the leader of the opposition, who is a dogmatic Scotsman who does not ; like to be  pushed. I am glad that we have  a strong leader of the opposition  to withstand the strong 'parliamentary drives made by the  premier. Good government requires this, but the result is legislative  sparks.  .*.   *    * . V  I think it is true to say that  some of the testiness; recorded  by members of the government  when,;under criticism by the opposition is caused .'. by v the fact  that most of the members; of the  Cabinet" have never beert' in. opposition : Neither have any of the /.  members- of the opposition' been  members of ..the government.  This means there is- a general :  lack of, sympathy, for . each  other's point of view.  ���P ^ 1*  One of the new members of  the legislature who has indicated skill in debate is H. C. McKay  (Liberal ��� Fernie). Be told the  KNOW  " By  TONY  GARGRAVE,   M.L.A.  house last week that the budget  was a let-down, indicating financial trouble in the P.G.E., an increase of tax on gasoline, and a  tendency, to blame the federal  government for everything." He  said that the major portion of  the budget was dedicated to  praising the government's accomplishments. He said that this  self-adulation was unnecessary.  "We - accept accomplishments  from the government because  this is what they are paid for,"  He said. "We are more interest-  Ted in future plans for a sick province," he told the legislature.  *    *    *  Mr. McKay noted that the Pacific Great Eastern Railway  was losing money and required  a subsidy of" $5,000,1800." In the  bill authorizing this amount of  money from the general revenue  it is described as an advance on  $9,000,000 owing the railway from  the federal government, as~ a  subsidy on construction, but the  government at Ottawa has never  undertaken to pay this' subsidy.,  Mr. McKay said, "If they need  money let us vote it without  subterfuge."

There are at least ^^::-two'-; effective ways to keep out

manager of the Gibsons branch of ^
"You can follow the Scrooge technique '(and just ignore the holiday. But it's not the best way to; win friends
and influence people. You're not likely to have much fun,
■ either," he adds.' •  y ''■■■ ■'■yj. -\: '.'.:'.'' ^ -.-■•.
Much better to plan aihead, Mr. Henniker believesi
and open a special Christmas savings account at the Bank
of Montreal. ...
Next year, when it's time to start Christmas shopping
again, it'll be much more fun to draw on money in your
special Christmas account. .*"...-
Why;npJt start right away? Figure how much you'll
need to spend at Christmas, divide the amount by the number of paydays between how and then and. make a regular
.deposit of that sum: It's guaranteed painless.
Each;' year, more and more Canadians are learning
how pleasant it is to do iheir/Christrrias shopping with no
worries about where the money's "going to come from..
Mr. Henniker will, be glad to show,you how easy it
it to operate'your own/special Christmas account throughout the coming year at the Bank of Montreal.
Now'si the time to start!
