Mr. Whitaker was informed the $800 was acceptable and he became the owner  of Sechelt. The area comprised  some 700 acres and stretched  4 from the waterfront ^at Sechelt  Ho the waterfront at 'Porpoise  Bay, over one mile square.  Needless to say "Bert Whitaker in those days did not  hajye ;very much cash but he  . built a small store on the west  side of Porpoise Bay on some  land his father had pre-empted  many years before.

The only other white  settler at that time was a  FireJichman named Pete Le  Vesque who "lived the other  side of Skeleton Island, that  is the name of the Island you  can isee from'- Porpoise Bay  wharf.

Dr. John Freisen,' able director of the Extension Department, poses problems such as: should liberal education or tecli-  nical training have the upper hand in the courses offered in the  future? What methods and facilities are best for adult education?  Are we neglecting the great resources of radio and television?  Dr. Freisen makes ene forceful point���-that adult education  is no longer confined to remedying the deficiencies in the education of the young. And our future will be determined in very  large measure by the emphasis we choose to place on public education for children, youth and adults.

Mrs. Alice Davey,   ,  5642 Dalhousie, Vancouver  Editor:  In   asking   some  of i  the representatives, sent from  several    organizations/   about  v/hat arrangements were being.,  contemplated for the   Centennial here,  I understand  frpgn  them that the matter had been  all cut and dried, before they  had been asked, or had an opportunity   to   attend   and  that  the object   of the. Centennial  was to be a Ballpark up?4>y.  the Pratt Rd. /     ���''���''/ ��;��-?-."  The first meeting had/been  called I believe in ��� December,  at a time when there ^vere so  many things on that'I know  many people could not attend.  It is a pity that it-had, not been'  a little earlier iri the year or  had been put off until thite  month. I have spoken to a good  many people recently and I  have not yet fouad anyone  who iiked the idea or had any  interest in it."��  A ball park is of interest to  only one strata of our people  here, and I think a- community  project should have been  something that would be of  some interest to the large majority. ���  We were asked to send in  ideas last summer and a good  many were sent in which  would have interested and  been used by most people.  I do not know how the money is to be collected, I believe  the government gives an equal  amount? or on a percentage  basis. If money is to be given  by our Village Commission towards it I rather doubt if it -  will please many of our taxpayers. I think that any government or village" money  should have gone to something  of wider interest to a greater  percentage of people. The tax  payers have already paid for  12 or 14 acres of land at the  High School, there should be  plenty of. room there for a  Ballpark.  M.E. Telford-'  Editor's Note: The editor of  the Coast News has attended  and reported a good .many Centennial committee general and  executive meetings and has not  gained the impression "the  matter had been cut and dried"  before the various representatives of other meetings had  been asked to attend. What  has happened is that the named representatives in a good  many cases throughout last  year failed to attend the meetings. At one early meeting the  various suggestions were whittled dawn publicly to a minimum number and from that  one was chosen and it happen-:  ed to be the park/ for fall fair  and sports events andanything  else. The ball park i3ea is just  brie of many uses for the  grounds.  -. < ���  LOOKING   FORWARD  It seems to me that many of  us dwell too much, on the past  without anticipating the future; our eyes are turned inward. Thomas Carlyle ridiculed people who indulged in self-  examination arid were constantly making new resolutions. He  referred to them as people who  had their eyes turned inwards  and thus became egotists. And  there-are those wiho maintain  that our divisions of time are  purely arbitrary and that we  do not turn .corners, or? open  rieie chapters of life's book.  We ought to be grateful for  anything which compels us to  look over the road we have so  far travelled and fortify ourselves, as well as we can, for  days to come,  ,. .. ���"   *->��� .'* ,   *.;.;; -;������  When Jonathan Edwards  came to the last day of the  year, he made^the following  resolutions, "I have resolved,  to live with all my might while  I do live, never to lose on^ moment of time, but to improve it  in the most profitable way I  can. I resolve never to do anything which I should ��� despise  or think .meanly of in another  person. I resolve, never to do  anything I should be afraid to  do if it were the last hour of  my life." These were pretty  good resolutions, Thomas Carlyle notwithstanding.  ' Another man who was given  to mark the passage of time ,  seriously was Sir Walter Scott. *  When  he   took   his   bride   to  Xasswade    Cottage    early    in  1.798* he showed her the garden  and lawn. He had decided to  make it the sweetest spot on  earth and-it evidently was very  beautiful and in his house he-  spent  many   of  the   happiest  hours of his life. And so, he  was   a proud   bridegroom   as  he showed his wife the beauty  of that place. In the centre of  the garden was a sun-dial; and,  according to the custom of the  tfene, he had.engraven on it a  favorite motto from the Bible.  It consisted of three words:  "The Night Cometh." His bride  was somewhat taken aback at  what looked like a morbid  thought. But Scott was not mor  bid, as his wife found out, but  he realized that it could not always be noonday; life could  not be lived without serious  thought and a keen sense of  responsibility.  ;,   *     *     *  It is interesting to remember that the great essayist, Dr.  Samuel Johnson, had the same  favorite motto as Scott. His  biographer, Boswell,; says that  he once caught sight of the  doctor's watchcase and on it  were engraven the three words  "The Night Cometh." John-  son was given to making resolutions, many of which, he admitted, were broken time and  again, but he still believed that  the practice was a good one  and he kept it up until the end.  Every New Year is a fresh,  opportunity and some self-  examination is a-"wholesome  and sensible thing. Not that we  are to sit down in nostalgic  grief about what we might  have done but rather we may  understand how we can do-better. That is the most delightful thing about human beings;  that we ail can extract victory  Guaranteed Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  out   of   defeat.   Every   single  stroke   of   adversity.... can   be  changed into positive good living.  *��    *    *  The lion is, called the monarch of the jungle/ but a lion  with 'a broken leg, or , some  other misfortune, has lost his  monarchy and is defeated. But  a broken man may retrieve  himself and even his misfortunes be turned into spiritual  enrichment Human beings  grow in stature and strength  by turning defeats into victor-  ' *es- ������'��� ./' '���'���-.'./  This is the opportunity of  the New Year. We may profit,  even from the mistakes of the  past. Frequently we meet people who tell us how much better they could be if they could,  start all over again./We doubt  it. There is. hotMng to be  ashamed of in having broken  resolutions. Yesterday is gone  forever and there is nothing  we can do about it. When a  storm blows a bird's nest from  a tree it immediateljT. starts to  b u ild another one. - /-Ciat.  thought hag been *a help to me.  We have today for resolutions,, plus actions. Emerson  said: "Write it oh/your heart  that every day is the best day  of the year; no riiah has learned anything until he" knows  that every day is doomsday."  Yesterday is gone and tomorrow-is veiled frprii us, but t<K\  day., is real and may be made  a stepping stone for better. Hv- >  Ing.  It seems to me that too many  people dwell too much on the  past instead of anticipating the  future.  The term "apothecary" dates  back to Biblical times. The Holy  Book refers to the apothecary ���.  "arid thou" shalt make of it an  oil of holy ointment, an ointment  compounded after the art ���of the  apothecary."

Over   theT  years the SPCA and the Humane    societies    have    urged,  * these governments to take action, but individual provincial:/  governments have been relucr  ��� tant to do so. ^ i/  More humane methods  are-T.  slower   and   more   expensive,*  so  "provinces    adopting    such  measures would be penalizing  then*   slaughterhouses   against  those in provinces which diid>  not adopt such measures. Because of this situation, the fed-y  era! government was asked to y  intervene. '/.?'.

The latter clause will still permit animals to be Died providing they  have been stunned or-gassed,  first. Ah exception is made if  animals are slaughtered in accordance with religious ritual,  that is the kosher killing of  the Jewish faith.  It is not the intention of the  government to have this bill  passed this session. The provincial governments and packing houses will be given an  opportunity to make representations on the matter and the  bill will then go forward at  the next session. I can assure  all my constituents who wrote  me on this matter that I will  certainly support this bill. It  is hoped that when-this bill is  passed, the ten provincial governments will then pass similar bills to make sure there is  no legal loophole.    '  I can assure all those (mostly women and children) who  wrote letters' that this legislation would not have been  brought forward if it had not  been for the deternimed. campaign and the obvious strong  ���feeling of -the writers of these  letters.

Bull session items1 are problems ,of a local na^-  ture, in this instance effecting Ocean Falls an4 Prince  Rupest. These must be settled at local level before a new  agreement will be signed.  12.
