 GOLDEN  CUP AWARD"  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE HOUSE & MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-9815  SERVING THE GROWING* SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons.   B.C.      Volume 17, Number 15, April 11. 1963.   ���   ���  7c per copy  Gibsons  can now  A letter from the Public Utilities Commission received by Gibsons village council and read' at  Tuesday night's council meeting,  gives council permission to purchase the. old United Church .property for public park 'purposes.  The park will cost the village  $5,000 to be paid the United  Church over a period of four  years. The village will also maintain the graves now there but no  further burials  can be made.  It has taken council about one  year to get the property cleared  with consent of descendants of  the Gibson family and other necessary legal requiremehtts. Council was alsof informed by clerk  Jiiles A. Mainil. that it will take  some time yet before the property is. turned over to council  due to the legal processes necessary.  Possibilities of a ban on parking in the ^rea ~ downhill opposite  the 'new ptfet office in view of a  traffic hazard will be considered  by council.        '  A letter from the department  of highways gives council power  to paint pedestrian markings on  roadways in vicinity of the old  post office corner. The letter  maintained that the no-accident  record of the area- did not warrant further consideration,  Accounts passed totalled $533.42  cf which $124.82 was for winter  works, $210:47 for water, $100.81  general and the remainder, miscellaneous operations.  iv* ���:>..,���  Eighteen memhefsfof the Sunshine Coast. Athletic Club track  and field team treked to Powell  River to meet with track athletes of; that town and Vananda  in a meet at Timber lane Park.  Although points were not recorded for this meet it was obvious to the spectators that the  Sunshine Coast club dominated  the competition.  For many this was their initial  attempt at outside competition  although some have had considerable experience at tracks in and  around Vancouver.  Considering this- was an early  season meet, a slow grass track  and some of the athletes were  novices many of the times, distances and heights in the various  events, were considered very  good.  The "Coasters" captured 16  first places, 12 second places and  o third places.  Those athletes who made the  trip are: Susan Thorold, Robin  Postlethwaite, Gladys Macleod,  Beryl Davis, Eloise Delong, Kirsten, Jorgensen, Gail Swanson,  Laurel Postlethwaite, Phyllis Emerson, Valerie Swanson and Helen  Bezdeck. David Macleod, Brian  Thorold, Garth Davis, Ross Gust,  tred Blakeman, John Thorold,  Ed Cooper and Glen .Davis.  The athletes and coach John  Little have asked that a special  thanks be given to Mrs. Margaret  Rankin who made the trip as  girls' chaperone, and to Mr. Ray  Delong, Mr. Norman Burley and  Mr. Al Thorold who so generously provided their cars and time  which made the trip possible.  The Sunshine Coast Athletic  club is sponsored hy the Sechelt  branch of the Royal Canadian Legion under their Junior Olympic  Training Plan.  Three plays  Sechelt Hospital Auxiliary will  present three one-act plays, Friday, April 26, at 8 p.m. in Sechelt's Elementary school auditorium.  One is a comedy, another a  drama, and the third. Book  Worms Don't Have to Bite, with  18 children in the cast.  Adults taking part under direction of Mrs. Hazel Critchell are  Ron Orchard, Mario Barendregt,  Heather Parker, Sadie Boyle,  Henry Barendregt, Fred Mutter,  Barbara Laakso and Jack Fleming.  Tickets are now available, and  may be obtained through Mrs.  W. Burtnick and Mrs. Shirley  Fearnley.  falls by 22  Twenty-five more yes votes  would have passed Sechelt School  district's $240,700 referendum to  c.��ver expansion' of the school system -for the next three years.  The vote, held Saturday, was  disappointingly "small considering  there are close to 6,000 names  on the school district voting list,  but not all of the 6,000 are resident in the area. Not more than  850 persons voted and the result  was 515 YES and 381 NO. K the  yes vote, had reached 540 it would  have passed.  At Tuesday morning's meeting  of the school board in Gibsons,-  the result of the vote which killed  the referendum, left the school  board in the position where it  decided to look into how the  school population expected next  September will be spread over  the available classrooms.  If the referendum had passed  and work could have proceeded  on a four-room addition to the  Elementary school in Gibsons. It  was forecast the new four-room  addition would have been filled.  The board at future meetings  will decide what to do.

Councillor Par^;  ker was referring to the department of highways paving job on;  the main highway which runs,  through the village.  Following - the paying "and the:  laying ' of   curbs on both   sides,  completion: of sidewalks comes  next. They. can be either five  feet .wide or yseven feet wide,  light tothecurb.'The "extra-tivd  feet -would be an expense borne  by the merchants, of the property  bordering on that area of sidewalk.  The other item which produced  most of the evening's discussion  concerned, the parking section of  the building bylaw which will be  changed if the powers-that-'be in  Victoria consent to the alteration  sought by council.  Under the bylaw as it was  drawn up "almost three times as  much parking space as there was  square footage in the building to  be erected was required. Some  councillors have been of the opinion this was too heavy a demand  Health unit  on any builder of commercial property and argued it was slowing  the growth of the village.  Various proposals were put forward, one placing the onus of  parking space strictly up to the  builder of any construction. This  was regarded as being too drastic  and would leave the council without any power to control parking.  Chairman Mrs. Christine Johnston pointed out that the bylaw  was drawn up after close working ��� with the Town Flanning department "in Victoria.'  Council finally had- before it a  motion moved by" Councillor William ... Swain and ���, seconded by  .Councillor Sam. Dawe,ythat f the  fparking ysection ybtk^m^ded . to  ��� allow -la kori^^^mr i^i^fe kfpeit  formula. This would mean instead  of close to 300 square feet for  parking for each 100 square feet  it would now -mean v 100 square  feet for ^ach 100 square feet:  No action can be taken on this  change at present by Sechelt  council because the motion must  go through necessary legal procedure and must obtain, the approval from the Victoria department before ��� it will become law.  . j Unable to get a seconder for a  potion, Councillor Dawe requested ithe motion he moved, cancelling the building permit for the  . d&,S application for suites above  file store area, be placed in the  i^ mutes. Councillor Dawe's reason for presenting the motion  v?as that, council's action in granting the building permit left fhe  village open for lawsuits. He argued the method of obtaining the  permit by providing a one year  .lease for a parking area within  .,'������' liOOO feet of his property was an  k evasion/of the   meaning of  the-  '-���>., pylaWii-  . ky.At-d previous meeting council  ifriaJgreecT to allowing Sechelt's pub.  i��0fel^T&ty._.;$P' buildr its own build-  J ^��fe^on?TaridV^  pal' hall.  ;  Council was informed that  the  effluent line laid across the high-  . way to-drain into a cement disposal unit was. granted by the  department of highways as far  as the highway area was concern,  ed.

The meeting,. held at Danny's  Dining room on April 4 with Dr.  K. I. B. Benson of the department of health, Miss Lavinia  Crane, public health nursing consultant; Mr. Roy Scott, supervisor from Victoria and Hugh Hart,  senior sanitarian of the Upper  Island Health Unit, gave officials  a chance to explain its objectives  in forming a health unit.  Numerous questions were asked by members of chambers of  commerce, municipal organizations and school board. The new  health unit which cannot come  into existence until mid-1964  would have its headquarters at  Powell River with officials from  there supervising the local boards  Organization of the health unit  would mean an upgrading of the ,  services available.  The Kinsmen Kiwanis Committee have now been advised that  the Old Age Pensioners Organization will definitely be able to  use the meeting room in the new  Health Centre, when it is built.  This meeting hall may also be  used, at the discretion of the public health department, for any  meeting in the interests of public health.  Generally speaking, this would  be a bandage folding group, a  sanitation meeting, a meeting in  support of a Red Cross campaign,  or a polio campaign. This room  will also be used to accommodate  travelling health units, the blood  donors clinic, travelling x-ray  unit and Salk vaccination, clinic.  The top portion of the building  will house the local public health  nurses, the sanitary inspector, and  the public health inspector when  he visits.  Plans for the building will allow haothers to leave their baby  carriages at road level on the top  floor and under a protective canopy.  The senior citizens will be able  to walk in on the bottom floor,  no stairs either way.  The Health Centre fund is rising slowly and the .committee  urges you to support this cause  and have the Health Centre built  in Gibsons now! Donations may  be made at any bank in Gibsons.  A receipt will be forwarded if you  leave your name and address.  No tax rate is involved in this  structure as it is financed by the  provincial health department  with The municipal council keeping the building in shape.  Provincial government hopes to  have a Westview-Texada-Comox  ferry link in operation by August,  but Courtenay Comox MLA Dan  Campbell candidly admitted to  The Powell River News in its April 4 issue, operations may not  start until late Fall or early Winter.  Announcement that the government would build a ferry, for the  mainland-island link, was made  at the beginning of this week.  Campbell said plans and specifications are presently being  drawn for a ferry that would accommodate 300 passengers and  25 to 30 cars. Ferry would have  restaurant facilities. Tenders for  construction will likely be called  in approximately two weeks.

ERNEST W. BOOTH  A native of Austin, Man., Mr.  Booth joined the B of.M there  and subsequently served at several branches in Manitoba and  Saskatchewan before being appointed assistant accountant at  Swift Current, Sask., in 1948.  Three years later, he became accountant at Portage la Prairie,  Man., and in 1954, was appointed  manager at Bissett, Man.  In 1956, he moved to assistant  general manager's department in  Vancouver and, later that year,  became manager at JKaslo, which  he leaves to take up his new post  at Sechelt.  While at'Kaslo, Mr. Booth was  vice-president of the Board of  Trade, an executive of the Rec-  leation association, and secretary-treasurer of the golf and  country club.  Mr. McNab, the departing  manager, has been in charge of  DONALD H. McNAB  ago, beating the subsidy cutoff  deadline of March 31. "Although  the subsidy has not been approved,"said Campbell, "it's a mere  formality and we expect approval  back at any time."  The ferry will cost approximately $600,000.  Plans call for a twice-daily run  between the mainland and Vancouver Island. If the ferry is not  large enough to accommodate  traffic, Campbell said, it would  be expected that the government  would construct another ferry or  equal size and run a shuttle service between the two points.  Campbell said fares charged  would be based on the B.C. Toll  Authority rate scale ��� $5 for a  car and $2 for passengers (one  way).  Campbell said he understood  some work would have to be car-  ritd out on docking facilities before the ferry opened operations  but anticipated this work would  be completed well before service  began.  The new ship will make about  15 knots, and is being designed to  meet the rough-weather condition  of the area between Comox and  PR.  The Dept. of Hghways said  that the proposed new wharf for  Westview would be adequate io  serve the new ferry.  "Any operator,, with a spare*  ferry can go into this run right  away if he wishes,' 'the department added.  "It should.be a profitable run  and we will help him all we can  to operate the service until our  new ship is ready."       .  \��muu\uunuuiunuiuuuviu\��muuuuuu\uummuim\\iu\iumu\u��  RED CROSS  TOTAL  The Red Cross drive this year  in the Port Mellon-Gibsons area  collected $706 which is a slight  increase over last year when $69i  was collected, Edward Henniker,  Bank of Montreal manager who  handled the campaign last month  for the Red Cross Society, announces.  mmimmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm 2       Coast News, April 11, 1963.

Ph. 885-9521  as the  Homelite  Chain Saw  DEALER  for the  PORT MELLON TO  EARL COVE AREA  gg'Hg  prices  maximum  By A. G. MacDonald  Climate, topography and big  trees combine to explain why  logging-in British Columbia diverges so far from the recognized lumberjack now familiar to  the rest of Canada. They explain,  too, the challenge to native ingenuity, engineering. skills and  professional know how that have  raised logging to the ranks of  big business in this Pacific province.  "��� In I960, British Columbia loggers felled over seven billion  board feet of timber.  Even in these days of astronomical budget and almost  equally high-flying, taxes, it is  difficult if not impossible for us  to visualize a billion of anything.  But just in case this seven billion board foot cut seems excessive, it should be pointed out  that the forest is a renewable  resource and that the annual allowable cut under sustained yield  management should eventually  reach some 18 billion board feet.  This is the estimate submitted  by the Government of British Columbia in 1956 to the Royal Commission on Canada's Economic  Prospects.  The vast extent of B.C.'s forests is not readily grasped. A  comparison with our neighboring  states may help to'bring the picture into focus.  Within her boundaries the province contains a total commercial forest area of 118 million  acres, carrying an estimated  1,836 billion board feet of sound  wood volume in trees 10 inches  in diameter or over. This Is approximately one million acres  and 372 billion board feet more  than the combined holdings of  the eight Rocky Mountain States,  Western South Dakota, Washington,-Oregon and California.  The influence of the logging  industry is felt in all parts of  the provincial economy. In addition to providing direct employment for some 18,000 engaged in the business of extracting  the raw material from the  woods, it makes jobs for other  thousands in commerce and industry who produce the supplies,  equipment and transport facilities needed to keep this army of  workers in the field and maintain the flow of logs to the mills.  Logging methods in British Columbia differ greatly from those  common to the rest of Canada.  The big trees and rough, mountainous .terrain, early forced the ,  ' coast logger, to develop special  techniques and heavy equipment  unique to his region.  Elsewhere, logging is a seasonal occupation, but in much of  British Columbia it is, to all intents and purposes, a year-  round activity, subject only to  occasional interruptions due to  excessive fire hazard or heavy  snowfall at higher levels. It is  the year-round nature of operations on the Pacific Coast that  justifies the heavy investment in  capital equipment, with the result that the growth of the in  dustry has been;accompanied by  a steady advance inf the design  and capacity of logging machines  of many kinds. 'Z-AXX,  In the brief space of ,aj half  century, logging methods in B.C.  have undergone spectacular  changes. -  Just as the steam donkey of  the pre-World War One era gave  way to A a. succession of gas or  diesel powered mobile logging  machines^ so did horses and  oxen yield place to logging railroads and these, in their turn,  to a constantly proliferating net-,  work of logging roads to serve  the now dominant truck logging  industry.  As the logger penetrated deeper and deeper into the forest  and higher into the hills the demand for mechanization became  ever more pressing, with the result that the job of getting large  logs from the woods to the manufacturing plants became one of  the most intensively engineered  processes in the whole field of  heavy industry.  High school  pupil aided  The major share of the 'UBC  Alumni Association Annual fGiving campaign funds again will  go to high school students who  enter the University, of British  Columbia this fall. The Alumni  Association will award $300  scholarships in each of the province's   42   constituencies. . :  Mr. Alan Eyre, the 1962 Alumni Annual Giving chairman, announced that the total value of  the fund was $36,749.55, which  was contributed to the Alumni  Annual Giving, an increase of  6% over 1961, and more than  double the amount collected in  1959. Number of donors to the  fund also increased, but: more  significantly the percentage of  alumni contributing is up over  last year.  In addition to scholarships*' the  fund was allocated as follows:  Friends of the Library, $3000;  Victoria College, $3000; President's Alumni Fundy $9,284. A  new departure this year was the  allocation of $1000 to the proposed new Student Union building.

' Beef prices have been declining and cattlemen are,dejected  but the 'consumer should be  pleased, says Julian Fry, Secretary of the B.C. Beef Cattle  Growers' Association.  Mr. Fry doubts that consumers  realize that during the past 6  months, beef has dropped in  price at the wholesale level by  8.6c per lb. for Canada Choice  and 8.4c for Canada Good.  Average wholesale dressed  price in Vancouver at March 1  was 42.3c for  Choice  and 41.5c  for Good, compared with 50.9c  and 49.9c for the same grades at  September 7, last year. At the  present time beef is cheaper by,  lJ/_c per lb. compared with thef'  price one yearu ago. Mr. Fry  then offers the suggestion that  those" who "like beef "should be  buying it at present market  levels. He adds that this illustrates clearly that a commodity  ^���^A-AWW  "��� >S* A*^*' >**V *f   }    AJW/A      JWV,  such asybeef, can and does vary  in price more rapidly than wages  and salaries.  Mr. Fry concludes with a  moral to this story: The consumers always retain their mem-  pry of high price periods and  ranchers always remember low  ones ��� so they both extract the  maximum misery from the situation.  h.<  *X)Lh.

The national election  The 26th Federal parliament which will meet in about one month  following Monday's national election, will prove interesting to say the  least. ...  No party at time of writing has a majority in the house of commons to give it a clear mandate. How the parties will line up when it  comes to voting will be watched with great interest.  However it would appear that Canadians prefer the old line parties. Social Credit shot its bolt in the last house of commons and the  NDP appears to be the party with a fairly consistent voting strength  but not enough to reach that of a reigning power.  The two parties," known as the old line parties, the Conservatives  and the Liberals, polled 75 percent of the national vote and the two  minor parties captured 25 percent between them. The changing vote  favored the Liberal party and placed them in a better position than  Prime Minister Diefenbaker found himself after the last election.  What will happen between now and the day the house of commons  meets, is problematical but it would be better for Mr. Diefenbaker to  "recognize the situation and if the armed services vote: goes according  to predictions and favors the Liberal party, giving them greater  strength, he should call on the governor-general and resign.  To some people, the Social" Credit result was not disappointing and  to others a great sorrow. The 75 percent old line party vote means  the people have decided the old line parties are the best of the political factors.the national inind has to consider.  To Jack.DaviSi .congratulations .on his Liberal, victory in Coast  Capilano. He was the pick of the candidates and the choice of the  majority, judging from his whopping majority.  A disappointing vote  Apathy, pure and simple!  That is the only fair way to describe the result of Saturday's  School Board $240,700 referendum vote which lost out by the narrow  margin of three percent, or about 25 votes.  How many voted? Thirteen percent of a rough 6,700 names on the  school district's voting list. This means thef actual vote was about  900. Is this the best Sechelt School District voters can do when the  future of schools'in the area is placed in their hands?  Analysis of the vote shows the area from Sechelt Rural up to Pender Harbour area voted 182 to 82 in favor of the referendum. The  votes from Sechelt Village to Port Mellon totalled 333 for and 293  against. This is the area which stood to gain most. Gibsons voted  181 for and 151 against. About 18 to 20 more votes  in favor would  have helped. -   .'��������'<������  It is to be expected that in each area tlie voters against the; referendum were more determined to cast their ballots than were .people  hot interested enough to place, their mark on the ballot.  If this ballot was to have been defeated it would have been" better  for a larger proportion of voters to have done so. One could'expect  that with a larger vote the three percent now lacking to pass the referendum would have been accumulated along with some more negative votes.  Ratepayers in this area should have enough faith in their district  to see the need for an expanding school system. What ..they may have,  to vote for next time, might' through^ necessity, be steteper. Costs arc  not show^r.g a tendency to remain' at present levels, especially, real  estate. y  Readers who feel the referendum was a mistake are at liberty to  use the columns of the Coast News to express their views. The editor  would welcome views from all angles.  Various theories to account for  the migration of birds arer still  discussed by ornithologists. The  southward flight in autumn is no  problem; summer leaves us and  the birds follow to where it is  still warm. We: do the same ^ourselves and will do so. in increasing numbers iri years to come ���  perhaps until only a few caretakers and skiing enthusiasts are  left to. enjoy the northern winters!  But why do the birds .return in  spring? Consider the hummingbird that leaves the abundant  food of Central America to cross  the Carribean in one long, = sustained effort of tiny wings and  plucky little heart, flying at night  to avoid the strength of the trade-  wind. Nor do all the hummingbirds stop near the southern  boundary of this country; sbms  go as far as the shores of Hudson  Bay.  The theory most favored is that  birds need the longer day of the  north to feed their nestlings, and  in the matter of making full use  of every daylight hour none can  excel our favorite robin. Even in  March the month of many wea-.  thers and before the hens have  arrived the robins are awake to  greet the, first sign of coming  (Jay. I hear" them chirrup and land  with light thuds on the drum-like  cover of cedar on my lowly roof  when I can barely distinguish the  dark forms of the firs against a  paling sky and long before the  first rosy tint has passed westward along the clouds. Again at  evening as the last glimmer of  twilight fades into darkness it is  only the robins who remain active.  The friendliness of the robin ���  even though it is only "cupboard  love" has long made him a favorite. His bold, confident yet  wary approach to one who must  seem so incredibly huge to him  is pleasing to all who prefer the  living creature to a shot-torn little body, pathetic in death. And  he faces hazards enough in the  natural way without the addition of man's deadliness; almost  every day at this season I find  the evidence of tragedy for one  and a feed for another. In nesting time there.is another danger:  should a sudden shower fall on  unfledged .young birds while the  parents are away foraging it is  fatal to them.  Last year, either by chance or  design a pair of robins chose a  perfect place under the eave of  the roof of one of the buildings  The angle between the wall and  a wooden bracket that supported  a gutter made  a secure foundation and the_ roof gave protection  from rain. A few days after the  blessed event -���the h'atchj that  is ��� I began some work on the  good earth nearby that was rich  with worms,  and I became well  acquainted with   the cock  bird,  while  the  hen . seemed   to  hunt  elsewhere. I soony noticed that if  I moved quietly along the rows  with only  covert glances at the  bird he would follow within reach  picking up the worms that the hoe  uncovered, but if I straightened  up and gazed fully at him he took  wing  at once.  So,. with a  little  care on my part a  good understanding grew up between us ���  two   different   manifestations   of,  the idea of organic life in .all its  variety as we were. And we were  both on the same tack, both of  us having gone to mother earth..  for our food in our separate ways  Young   robins   are   voracious  feeders;   within   a  minute   after  papa had  flown off with worms  dangling from his beak on both .  sides like untrimmed whiskers hie  would drop down beside me again  Ounce for ounce lumibricus ter-  restus, the  common, earthworm,  jp one of the  richest morsels of  protein ��� and protein is the very  stuff of.growth so it was not long  before  , those .:;youngsters yCwere  winged and airborne..'.'k'-A-xx  At present the main business of  the cock robins is to choose and  claim desirable nesting-sites and  to defend them fiercely against  all would-be claim-jumpers. The  eld view of. combat as being for  possession of the females was one  of   those   dangerously   plausible  conclusions  arid is now discred- .  ited, such combat being needless  ��� for one  obvious reason. The  warfare of the males before the  hens are on the scene fits the  theory .that it f is'f for: territorial  rights only ��� almost human are  they not!  After some weeks empty half-  shells of that peerless, blue tint  will be found on paths and open  ground in unexpected places, but  all��� far from'the riests^ There is a  reason for that as there is for  all natural phenomena ��� and one  connected with survival. Were the  old birds to just heave the shells  overboard after the hatch the  first raccoon who passed 'by on  the night patrol would exclaim  "Ohfho, yourig robins afbove!"  And up he would go ��� with dire  results.  . '' "��� '   .  4       Coast  News, April 11, 1963.

Surnames are frequently unusual  and sometimes difficult to pronounce clearly, while first names  are not.

HARRIS)  Advice on how to raise a child  to be a criminal, ten points not  offered in jest in a talk delivered  recently to the Empire Club in  Toronto, by Deputy Commissioner  George B. McClellan of the Royal  Canadian Mounted Police:    .,  .- ���  Have no rules in the home for  child    behaviour   or   obedience  This will   insure that  the child  has no clear concept of right or  wrong.  If you have any rules, ignore  them when you are in a good .  humor and knock the kids silly  when you are out of sorts. This  will confuse them and eventually  they will resent all discipline.  Air domestic disputes in front  of the children, preferably with a  little name-calling. This will insure a lack of respect for parents.  Never give a child regular  chores or duties. This will convince him that you and the world  owe him a living without effort  on his port.  If he is disciplined at school,  always tear a strip off the teacher in front of the child. This will  create a fine contempt for authority at any level. :-.���...  If he has trouble with the police  bawl out the officer and be sure  to refer to dumb cops.. This will-  earn for him his diploma in contempt for authority.        :    '   ^  When driving with the family,  exceed the speed limit but slow  down on sighting a police car  and speed up when it is out of  view. This will demonstrate that  the law is to be observed only  if there is danger of being caught  If you are speeding and are  stopped by.' the .police, always,  deny it belligerently. The child  will then know that to cheat and  lie is acceptable conduct.  If you chisel a few dollars on  your income tax, boast of it to  the children. This will teach them  lhat stealing is all right if you  can get away with it.  Never check up on with whom  or where youngsters are in the  evening, or what time they get  home. This is almost sure to help  them  get into trouble.  Deputy Coriamissioner McClelr  Ian : appended these statistics: in f  a recent year in Canada 35,000  young people from 16 to 24 years  appeared in the courts, and more  than half were charged with offences against the Criminal  Code; 14,000 youngsters from  seven to 15 years were in the  courts and four out of five were  charged with criminal offences.  "I think the trouble begins,in  the home," he went on, "And ultimately it will have to be, corrected in the home. The police,  the courts, the overworked rehabilitation organizations, the boys'  and girls' clubs, useful though  church ��� and particularly for the  the home, and the school and the  they are, can never substitute for  home."

One of them was a  \; delicate"; girl .who fwaS' quite;-ill  with her cold arid missed over  a week of school.  Respiratory ��� troubles, 'mostly  different-kinds of cold or flu, account for over "45 percent of non-  ;; attendance'at school. ^In': the  junior grades, especially, cold  f symptoms; are often the restart of  a communicable - diseasei?2"k  It; is unfair to the other students for: children to'be sentfto  school with colds. A day s or v two  of rest in bed with a light diet  and whatever medication the  doctor suggests on the phone will  often check a;cold at the start.  A - child-, needs to -be - in good  health to get the best put of his  schooling. Mothers, by feeding  their children: nutritious -meals,  kand by encouraging good habits  of k sleep fand"cleanliness and  4; avoidance of accident situations,  help to promote regular school  attendance.  TV fills quite a few hours of  most school children's days and  many children have wide interests and belong to a number of  youth groups as well., Sometimes  their physical and nervous energy is over-taxed by too many  extra-curricular activities.  Fatigue as a cause for school  absenteeism can be reduced by  limiting the time spent on TV  and insisting ori a choice be-  y tween some of these activities.  An earlier bedtime is a necessity, for children who are at a  low ebb from insufficient sleep.  Mothers as well as teachers  can encourage a pride in faithful attendance. A child should  not be kept. home from school  for trivial reasons or because it  is more convenient for mother to  have the child at home to perform some task or cafe for a  baby.  A parent's respect for the  child's teacher, the school, and  the child's, studies all help a boy  or girl feel that his schooling is  important. An interest in his  work each day as well as in his  report card is important. Scholars must take responsibility for  their own work, but parents  should know how they are getting along.  Sometimes a child balks at going to school because he is falling behind In his work and has  become discouraged. The teacher  should be consulted and extra  coaching arranged if necessary.  The teacher who is fair but  . firm in discipline, who knows his  work and also understands his  pupils is likely to have a good  record of his pupils' attendance.  Many an adolescent takes a  chance and misses school (if he  thinks he will not be caught) if  he neither likes nor respects his  teacher. Resentment against  what a student considers unfair  or too harsh punishment is the.  reason for some boys being absent from school.  Copyrighted  frepqred by the Research Staff bjf  IN CYCI OPED IA ^ A N A DI AHA  Are Canadian handicrafts  important?     "     "  ���x.-x,.-.-  Surprisingly important. About  400,000 Canadians produce handmade pottery," weavingf and other  handicrafts. Most of them turn  out handicrafts as a supplementary source of income; many enjoy it only as a hobby. Never-  the less, the annual retail value  of Canadian handicrafts is an  astonishing one hundred million  dollars.,   '  Traditional skills are maintained in certain areas. In St. Jean  Port Joli, for example, more  than half of the 1200 people engage in wood-carving, often employing chisels still forged by a  local blacksmith. Other popular  Canadian handicrafts are ��� hooked rugs, quilting, leather and  iron work. Indian experts still  turn out thousands of birchbark  boxes and dishes, while Eskimo  handicrafts now firid an insatiable world marketk ���'.';.  How did John Horden rate as  a Missionary?  At the top. In 1851 the Church  Missionary Society sent this English'lad, to Moose Factory, an  outpost - in : the . desolation of  James Bay. He labored there for  42 years. Horden translated the  Anglican Prayer Book* the Gospels and a hymn book into the  Cree language. He then printed  the translations ,' himself on a  hand press sent but from England. Later he translated the  whole Of the New Testament into Cree.  Thousands of Indians were  baptized by this man and he also taught them to read. Horden  literally created the-/ Anglican  diocese of Moosonee himself arid  was consecrated its first bishop.  He died at Moose Factory in  1893, a unique example of unconquerable, determination to the  last.'.'  Is Canada well supplied  with mice?  The following species of mouse  live in Canada: pocket mice,  meadow mice, red-backed mice,  white footed mice, deer mice,  pine mice, lemming mice, meadow jumping mice, and woodland jumping mice and house  mice. No wonder cats are independent creatures -��� they have  plenty of scope to go into business for themselves!  Who introduced Mackenzie   .  King to public life?  Sir William Mulock, then federal minister of labor from 1900  to .1905. He made King his deputy  minister. Sir William, who lived  to be 100 years old, in full pos  session of his faculties, was outstanding    for    the    progressive  steps Canada took in postal matters during;;hisf'tenure as post-,  master-general^    -;  He was responsible for the  adoption of penny postage among  the then globe-girdling countries  Coast News, April 11, 1963.       5  of the British Empire: His son,  William Pate Mulock, served as  postmaster general, too, in the  federal, cabinet headed by Mackenzie Kirig, between 1940 and  1945.

The Health League of Canada  reporting .on. a. recent: statement  issued by the American Medical  association on the subject of  nose blowing, quotes the following reasons for this potential  damage to the ear: Two tiny  tubes that have an opening in  the upper part of the throat connect with" the middle ear, one  on each side.

The eardrums do not normally permit  any air to get in or out of the  middle ear.  Adjustment of air- pressure in  the middle ear is normally carried out automatically and without conscious effort. If there is  too rapid a change in outside  air pressure, such as occurs  when ascending or descending in~  a plane, the air in the middle  ear may expand or contract. The  eardrum will either bulge out or  curve in and ear pain may be  produced. Then a conscious effort is needed to open the tubes  in the throat and let air in or  out of the middle ear. This can  be done by swallowing, chewing  gum or holding the nose and  then trying to blow.  The nose should be blown with  both nostrils open, so there is  no chance of back pressure developing and forcing the tubes  open. ...'������.'������.  During the acute stage of a  cold, germ-laden mucus is ' present in the upper throat, and this  can be forced into the openings  and thus into the middle ear.  This is more likely to happen if  one nostril is closed and the,  other is blown* hard, since considerable pressure is developed!  The proper way. to blow your  nose is not to. blow too hard and  to leave both nostrils open.  TO AVOID FIRE:  Remove matches and other inflammables from the pockets of  winter garments before  storing.

The  brothers   Reeves   settled there about 1907 and cleared-  and worked much of the 132 acres  During the following years, Berty  how deceased, and Frank left to  farm   at  Lulu  Island,  and later  Dick  moved to the Lower Road:  where his wealth of flowers, begonias in particular, have delight,  ed   many   visitors   and   graced  many shows  and exhibitions.  It was 1911 or thereabouts fthat  Jack Reeves first was able to  reach Sechelt by road and that  small settlement became the market for the farm's produce. It  was there also that he met Miss  Gertrude Burch who was spending a summer there and in 1914  the couple were married in Vancouver.  On returning on the SS Secheit  Mrs. Reeves recalls that she  would have slipped off the float  which answered as a wharf had  not. the alert groom caught her  just in time. 'Z  Four children were born to the  Jack Reeves and all were f  brought up on the farm. They are  John, Jordan River; .Gordon, Sechelt; Sheila, Mrs. A. Danroth,  Roberts Creek and Ada, Mrs. A.  Porteous, Sydney.  The Reeves took an active part ���  in the growth of the community.  That their industry and the fertility of the farm were on a par  was evidenced by the dozens of  ribbons  and prizes  won by the  couple in the annual fairs which,  at one time, were held at the  Creek as well as at Gibsons. Whether canned chicken, fruit or vegetables, the Reeves entries were  .always in the top brackets,  f  Expert as Mrs..,.Reeves was in  the kitchen" shef still liadf time; to  learn/the art of weaving andfex-:  perimented with designs and ma-  ; terials " even to the extent of  growing flax for her loom. Poetry dropped easily from her pen  While articles fashioned from local clay dried beneath the kitchen  stove. Though, far. at the upper  end of Elphinstone Road she was  far from bushed, and her searching mind led her into many fields.  Mr. Reeves will be remembered by many as probably the last  ". driver of a horse and cart in the  farm so  district,   for,' although    he   had  owned ;and leafrfed.to drive mo-;  torized vehicles, he: always went  back to  his  first love,   his .fat  and faithful horse.       k  Mr. Reeves passed away in Victoria about. fa year ago:; Mrs.  Reeves is now a resident of Sydney, V.I.

Gibsons Merchants 1, Roberts  Creek 3.  Sechelt Warriors 0, Sechelt Legion 4.  Friendly game:  Port Mellon B 0, Gibsons Utd.  B 6.   : -.  Below are listed the scheduled  league games for Sunday April  14: .  Gibsons Mercs vs. Port Mellon,  2 p.m.  Sechelt Res. School vs. Sechelt  Warriors, 2 p.m. .X  Roberts Creek vs. Gibsons Utd.  1:30 p.m.  On Sunday, April 7, the Sechelt  Legion team put on a display for  the soccer public, an   exhibition  of  what   can  be   accomplished  when you get boys who are willing to listen and try, plus a very  able coach like Mr. Fred Jorgensen. I can look back to the latter  few  games   in  1962,   when   this  Legion  then had  a record of  2.  wins, 4 losses, 1 tie, 14 goals for  and 38 goals against in their first  7 league games! The part which  in these  days attracted   my attention  tp   this  team  was   that  while their  defence was  consistently losing goals,   their attack  was very spasmodic. Some games  (12 goals in 2 games) they were  top class, but in other (5 games,  2 goals scored) games, they must  have broken  the   coach's heart. *  But, and a very   big but, sincg  that day in November when they"  lost to Sechelt Residential School  they  have   never    looked  back.  The record book backs this  up: .  8 wins, 3 defeats, 1 tie, goals 35!  for,   13 against!  This is not the  best team in the league, but only  the most improved. I can not pay?  any   better praise  to Fred Jo'r4  gensen and his boys than to say��  that if   they had played  in the  beginning of the season as they  are playing now, they would prc-  'baibly have been around 2nd placel,  in  the  league.   Their  attack  is);  good, they know the road to goal ^  and   they  can  all   shoot,  while k  their defence has improved.100%.  Truly the most improved team in-  the  league. Outstanding for  the  Legion team last   Sunday were |  Hall, a commanding centre half,  Tates on right wing: Hanford at  centre forward arid Higginson at ,.  inside   left. - A  GIBSONS ���  FREE DELIVERY  Lean Side Bacon  69c lb-  Loin Pork Chops  59c lb-  Lean Ground Beef  2  lbs for  89c  smoked Picnic Hams  FOR YOUR JEASTER JJpW kk  Turkeys, Bamsy Cottage llollx, Roiisling (liiikms.
