He also discussed proper?;  feeding.  Membership dues of the club  were set at $1 for junior and  $2 for senior members, per  year.  Various feed companies have  been approached to see what  prizes would be available.for  the Calf Club showing at the  Fall Fair.       .

Details of the local canvas  and the response to it had been  circulated to all committee  chairmen throughout B.C. and  Canada and had been made the  subject of  considerable news  paper publicity. He stressed,  however, the urgent need for  continued effort since the fund  was still $2,000,000 short of its  objective of $7,500,000.

But to get back to the higher  level of the Friday night concert, Sentimiento, the Infante  music with a decided Spanish,  flavor intrigued and the light  L'embarquement pour Cyther^  by Poulenc was as refreshing  as it was brief.  The climax of the, concert  was' the familiar Hungarian  Rhapsody No. 2 and the audience loved it. It is a great  show piece and the pianists in  their effort did not give Liszt  any chance to turn over in his  grave. He would more than  likely, if standing on the platform, have applauded as happily as the audience and equals  ly as loud.  The encores, including the  Mozart Turkish March and  Rondo, the .Rimsky-Korsakov  Flight of .the Bumble Bee, the  .: Fiinit Donkey1 Serenade" were  excellent and the final Jesu,  Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach  ended the evening in a quieter  mood.  Then after the audience filed  out, the pianists turned/to preparing their pianos for transportation in their own specially designed truck and next  morning left Gibstons a better  place because they had left  their imprint on mapy individuals, young and old��� an imprint which will take some'  time to eradicate. ��� F.C.  Deed delays  park project  Delay in acquisition of the  deed for Hackett PaVksite was  the reason the project has not  been started earlier, it was re-  ealed at the meeting of the Sechelt Centennial Committee.  Plans for the park were discussed at great length, and a  sub-committee was formed to  compute the prices of different fencings. Clearing of the  land, and building of the fence  are expected to begin at an  early date.  A spokesman for the .Kinsmen, Frank Newton, suggested  his organization planned to be  onjiand, ready to do all they  can to assist the project.  Donations and funds raised  by the Kinsmen from the people in the area are to be used  to buy equipment for a playground for younger children,  adjacent to the ball diamond..

No mean citizens!  The Sunshine Coast's good name has-received another  boost, this time from officials in charge of the drive to collect  funds for the University of British Columbia.  In view of the strike situation in this area for eleven  weeks, the Sunshine Coast was written off as an area which  could be regarded as non-productive as far as the fund, was concerned.  But wht happened? Officials of the university drive are  holding up the Sunshine Coast to other districts because it has  been a surprise tp them. It is expected the district will exceed a  $3,000 total in cash and pledges. Pender Harbour tops the list in  donations.*Apparently we are citizens of no mean district!  True charity  in the  heart  "Charity" is one of the most smug words in use today.  Defined in Britannica, it means liberality to the poor, readiness  to overlook faults, Christian love. Often the latter is completely  overlooked, as fortunate people, filled with a very huriian desire to have their friends look upon them as charitable, dig in  the attic or basement for articles long since east aside as useless.  Clothing, torn and buttonless; furniture, spattered, and  broken; household utensils, rusted and unserviceable, find their  way into boxes marked for "charity."  True charity is in the heart. To share with one another,  without thought of "giving." None of us owns a thing on this  earth. At best, what we use in a lifetime is really only borrowed.  Money, fame, goods and chattels, and even love are ours for only  as long as we live. The old saying that you can't take it with you  is far more true than most of us realize. What goes on in the  hereafter does not concern us here.  Now, if we don't really own anything, what is all this talk  about "giving to charity"? It is a universal chant, arid those who  work hard at it may find offence. How much better, though, to  say: "Won't you share with others"?  There is no denying that some cases.are professional charity. Too steeped in self-pity to help themselves, they do take ad-,  vantage of the kindness of others. They don't deserve the distinction of "sharing" with those more fortunate.  ,When you give someone an article which you use and like,  just because they ,need it more than you do, that is sharing in the  Christian way. When you are happy in their pleasure, and not  because your friends will think you are charitable, you have  Christian love in your heart, and know the true meaning of that  misused word "charity."  Charity is people. People who have dreams and hopes and  pride. People who haven't, through misfortune, illness or environment, been able to weather the toll of life.  Don't give to charity ��� SHARE! ! ��� Be tie Lumsden  mm  p r e p a>���> ed   6 y': "> tie    R ISE A R C H'"'-S TAfflof  ENCYCLOPEDIA     CAN A DIANA  What was the Beaver Club?  The Beaver Club was a dining  club formed in Montreal in 1785  by leading members of the North  West    Company.    At first only  those who had passed" a winter  in. the   Northwest  could be admitted to membership, but this  rule     was    later relaxed.  Each  member was required to have a  gold medal made; this was worni  on a ribbon at club dinners. The  maximum membership seems to  have been 50, with 10 honorary  members.    The    club lapsed in  1804 but was revived from time'  to time- The last recorded meeting was held in March 1827. Most  ���of the  great figures of the fur  trade were members of the club,  the minute books  of which are  now    preserved in  McGill University Library.  Who was Maqinna the  Magnificent?  Maquinna was the chief of the  Nootka Indians and he made his  first contact with white men in  1778 when Capt. J. Cook visited  Nootka on the West coast of Vancouver Island. Cook was received  so hospitably that he gave the  name of Friendly Cove to the  bay on which Maquinna's village  was situated. In 1788 Maquinna's  youager brother Comekela, who  had been taken to China by a  trader, was repatriated by Capt.  John 'Meares. Meares bought  from Maquinna ��� for two pistols  ��� ��he plot of ground upon which  the British founded their claim  to the Northwest Coast of America. After the murder of the In  dian chief Callicum by the Spaniards, Maquinna went into mu-  ing, fearing a similar late, but  later he returned to his kingdom.  During the negotiations between  Quadra and Vancouver- in 1792  he was treated with great courtesy: eating from Quadra's table  daily, when he "used his kniie  and fork like the most polished  European." In return he entertained the two captains at a great  feast before their departure from  Nootka. In his later years, feeling that his sovereign rights were  not respected by the Maritime  xur-traders, Maquinna became  moody and sulien. In, 1803, to  avenge an insult by the captain  of the Brig Boston, he and his  men captured the ship and murdered all the crew except John  Jewitt and John Thompson,  whom he held as slaves for nearly three years.'Maquinna Point  at Nootka was named by the  Spaniards in 1791 after this powerful chief.  For What is Abraham Grpves  noted?  Abraham Groves is famous for,  his pioneering in the field of abdominal surgery. During 63 years  of practice as a country doctor  in Fergus, Ontario, he performed more: than 20,000 operations,  many of them under primitive  conditions. As early as 1874 he  practised antiseptic surgery. He  was the first doctor on this continent to remove an appendix  (1883). The Groves Memorial  Hospital at Fergus was founded  by him, and, deeded as a gift to  the village in 1932.  (By Laura Linton)  If on Feb. 14 this year I  sent my love a hand-knit muffler he would scratch his head  and make an appointment for  me with the nearest psychia^-  trist. But on Valentine's Day  in 1758 giving hand-knit mufflers was the normal thing for  "nice" young ladies to do. It  was on that day that great affairs of the heart took place,  and the festival of St. Valentine's was celebrated by young  people exchanging anonymous  tokens..Nor was it an occasion  to be regarded lightly ... very  often it meant a serious though  wordless proposal of marriage.  In those days a "nice" girl  didn't walk alone with the man  of her choice nor was she allowed to talk to him unchaper-  oned. So the hand-knit muffler,  or the embroidered sampler  provided the one.chance in the  year for her to give him the  slightest encouragement.  While she had been busily  knitting or embroidering he  had probably been spending all  his spare minutes carving ....  a spoc^_ perhaps, for spoons  were one of the most popular  Valentine tokens. They had a  language of their own according to the designs that were  carved on them. Sometimes  the carving was so elaborate  that the stem was wider than  the bowl. Usually the spoon'  bowls   were heart-shaped   but  Letters to the editor  Editor: With an election date  again set, the period is at hand  when we are at a loss to know  exactly what allowance to  make for tongue-in-cheek and  wishful thinking. Some days  ago British United Press carried statements by Jimmy Sinclair that some may swallow  outright, whereas others beg  to differ. He states "the Liberals could not drop much. below their present 106 seat  strength."  The first major move of the  new leader of the opposition  in childishly getting up in the  house and asking the government to retire and. make way  for the Liberals, after the  froth and fury a few days earlier in the Liberal Convention,  hardly suggests solidly retaining the 106 seats. Little wonder Diefenbaker placed new  definitions on B.C.. and A.D.  (before convention and after  defeat).  I fail to follow the reasoning in Sinclair's next statement . "Now, however, they  have 113 seats and we have  106 and there is a real difference between- the two major  arid the two minor parties." It  seems to me Sinclair here at  lea*st inferentially agrees there  was rio difference in the major parties- prior to the last  election. I heartily agree and  still suggest there is no difference between them. Then Jimmy sure indulges in wishful  thinking when he states "this  election will do much to remove the minority parties, at  least as far as the, three' Western provinces are concerned." ��  It is just as likely that an increased CCF. representation  will play a very dominant part  in the new house.  Sinclair then reminds us  that "the fantasttc promises of  the Conservatives would give  the Liberals a chance to hit  back." 'Twas ever thus, the  old political game of the pot  calling the kettle black. It may  well be that 22 years in office  places the Liberals at some disadvantage in advocating anything new, thus the best they  can hope to do is demonstrate  how miserably the Tories have  failed us after seven months  in office. I was somewhat surprised to note Sinclair characterizing the new Liberal  chietain as the underdog. Surely Jimmy heard of the Nobel  Peace prize, and in all probability that niay have, had some  effect on Pearson's election as  chieftain. ' -  The Gallup pollsters and  MacLeans magazine show that  elections are not the easiest  things to forecast correctly.

However, many more lives  may be saved if, through research, the causes of heart  disease can be determined.  Research of this nature is a long range project. It  requires highly trained workers and the.jiiost modern  equipment. These cost money.  Last year, with timely financial assistance from the  Life Insurance Companies, the National Heart Foundation of Canada began to correlate and step up the tempo  of research into the causes of heart disease. \  This is just one. of many ways in which the Life  Insurance Companies in Canada are encouraging  medical research that will help Canadians live longer,  and more happily.

MLA  Gordon Dowding (CCF, Bur-  naby) is carrying on the tradition started by the late Ernie  Winch in looking after the  welfare of the people who cannot speak for themselves. Last  week Gordon Dowding gave a  detailed report to the legislature on the present conditions  of our institutions such as the  Essondale Mental hospital and  the Woodlands school for mentally retarded children.  Mr. Dowding was concerned  with the deterioration of. conditions for the patients in both  these institutions, because of  the cuts that had been made in  staff by Wesley Black, provincial secretary, under whose department these institutions operate.  o  *    *    *  Mr. Dowding told the legislature that the. patient population of Essondale was now up  to 6,000 patients but last year  for the first time, more patients, were discharged from  Essondale Mental Hospital  than had been admitted.

However, recent directives  from the government to not replace those people leaving or  retiring from these institutions  has resulted in a worsening of  services. These resignations,  many of them because of low  pay,? have resulted in patients  being unable to go out for  walks because there are not  enough nurses, and the abandonment of some, forms of  treatment.  There are only six psychiatrists and a handful of psychologists at Elssondale to look after 6,000 patients. With this  ratio ; of psychiatric workers  to 6,000 patients it must be impossible to give proper diagnosis, treatment arid follow-up  care.

' ,  / ��� '  . ��� i        . .' '  The salary committees  of the Board and the Sechelt Teachers' Association met v  twice in December. Near the beginning of the first meeting, the Boards' committee 'offered; a salary scale which was so unrealistic that the Teachers' committee immediately rev  jeoted it However, the first meeting was amicable,   and   the hoard members seemed  genuinely impressed with the teachers' case.  '.'.���' ..���   '    v        .;  -  A few days after the first meetirtg, an official of the B.C. School Trustees' Association met with the local Board. After his visit, the Board's attitude was completely chang-.  ed. It had become: "If you don't accept what we offer, we'll give it to youi anyway.  On December 20, the Board informed the Teachers' Association by letter tihat  they did not wish to negotiate further and again offered the identical salary scale which  they had presented at-theJurst meeting���this in spite of the extensive brief presented,  by the teachers, with which, most of the members had expressed themselves in agreement.   - *  ? V .'���'���''��..''���  In the interests of maintaining good relations, between board  and teachers, the     .  teachers, though rejecting the. board's offer, made, a 'Counter-proposal considerably lower   r  than the salary agreement already in effect in the neighbouring district of Howe-Sound,  and lower, too, than an agreement recently concluded in North Vancouver. The Board        '  completely ignored this proposal and "fixed" salaries in accordance with their own 'ef*   _  , fer. .' ' '   ,*    ;;: .'?'���''' .

Sechelb teachers ��� in defense of their citizens' rights ���cannot permit their  school board to dictate teachers' salaries. Surely the right of collective bargaining for  teachers is fair and reasonable.  This denial of basic rights is the root of -current difficulties between teachers and..    *  trustees. We believe that if the trustees had actually negotiated with teachers instead  of merely pretending to negotiate, a mutually satisfactory agreement would have been  reached long since. Instead, the Board-has followed a plan devised by the School Trustees'  Associaltion to deny teachers the rights of ordinary citizens.  /  WE INSIST THAT TRUSTEES NEGOTIATE WITH THEIR TEACHERS. ANY  OTHER COURSE ON THE PART OF THE BOARD IS BRUTALLY DICTATORIAL, A  DENIAL OF RIGHTS WHICH ARE YOUKS , AS .WELL AS THOSE OF THE TEACH-  ERS.

Halfmoon Say  by PAT WELSH  The annual general meeting  of the Redrooffs and Welcome  Beach Recreation commission  was held at Redrooffs Hall,  Jan. 30. The chairman, William Grundy reported a satisfactory year.  There had been a marked increase in community activity  and plans were going ahead for  the building of the Welcome  Beach Community hall during  1958. Considerable work had*  been done-on the lot and the  site was ready for the building which would start shortly.  Several generous donations  had been received.  Ht    *    *  ���, All the members of the com.  mission were re-elected for  the coming year. Those serving on the commission are:  William Grundy, chairman; El.  S. White, vice-chairj^tan; Mra.  M. Tinkley, secretary, Mrs. M.  J. Greggs, treasurer? and Mrs.  . J.E. Meikle, - A.E. HeBny. arid  D. McCaul. :>  A building committee was  elected, comprising J.A. Young  A.E. Henny ahdvj.iCooper. The  'chairman expressed his appreciation to Mr. J. Cooper who  had so generously lent Redrooffs hall and the resort  grounds on numerous occasions, and to the members of  the commission who had servr  ed so conscientiously during  1957;  *    *    *  There will be a Valentine  Party on Friday, Feb. 14, *  p.m. al the Redrooffs Hall  with games, contests and bingo  It will be sponsored by the  Redrooffs and Welcome Beach  Recreation Commission.

White.  *  *  Mrs J. Meikle is in Vancouver to. attend the ballet. Mrs.  R. Greggs will be in Vancouver for the week.

REMEMBERED KINDNESS  "; A^ew^days before.his cruci-  ;::   fixiqh Jesus was in Bethany &  #.^rguest of Simon the leper.  In  ??^t^t?* lonely   hour,   when   his  ���;>?N&ul?<was exceedingly   sorrowful, .Mary  came with  an  alabaster ;KbOX^ of precious  ointment'and; poured the perfume  on his head,and feet in order  .   to show her love" and reverence  for  him.  When  those   in   the  room ? criticized Mary  for the  profusion and apparent prodigality of her gift, Jesus, who  was deeply touched by the incident, rebuked them and said  "Wheresoever this gospel shall  be   preached   throughout, the  whole world, this also that she  hath done shall be spoken of  for? a memorial of her."  -There -!and . then Mary .was,  immortalized. That burst of  spontaneous-affection has been  remembered for nearly twenty  centuries. ?Just as the fragrance  of that perfume filled tlxe'room  where all were seated", so the  influence of that holy deed  has gone out to the. corners o  the earth.,. There has been a -lit-  -    - era!?*   fulfilment * of   * Christ's  ��� words "flor wherever the gospel  has been'preached the story of  MaryV. simple   and  beautiful  :���   deed hastbeen told.  '���������'���'    Jesusi.littered what someone  : v h^?6^ijled:..''Heaven's  verdict  On earth's unselfishness ... he .  revealed,  the   immortality .of  ; kindness."   Some   pedple   are  afraid of doing the incorrect,  the  unconventional  thing:  in  ��� the'eyes of the disciples Mary  committed that mistake. It Was  so "impractical, so seemingly  useless and lacking in good,  taste. But "there was a higher  judgement &nd by that estimate the irrepressible outburst  of a grateful heart was a priceless thing. The critics said:  "Why was this waste of ��the  ointment made?" But -there  was no waste. It was a great  thing Mary had done. These  seemingly trivial deeds may be  the.most-significant things of  life, as Wordsworth said:  That best portion of a good  man's life, -.,..-  His little nameless, unremem-  bered acts of Kindness and  of love.  One is tempted to think that  it is. ��� harder for people to be  kin'd.;jtoday than ever before.  This As .an age of keen compe-  ' titiopjW- and that is often a  word used /to cover moresinis- ���  ter things ���=- - cruelty and* cal- .  lous indifference to the lot of  others. In the^ stress and strain  of modern life it is almost accepted as inevitable that many  will bV trampled upon and humiliated. There is no place,  men say, for sentiment and for  outbursts of spontaneous goodwill. You will be taken advantage of, they insist, if you do  that.  ���*������ In a little poem of singular  beauty, Whittier tells of a man  who visited the village where,  siany years before, he had, lived as a boy. Life had gone hard  with him and as he ��� stood in  the little cemetery by a grave  ���it was. that of a little girl���  he .remembered how as a boy  he had failed to spell a word  arid the girl had been advanced to his place. When school  was over she had waited for  him and shyly said:  "I'm sorry that ��� I s^pelt the  word: ���  I hate to go above you",  Because," ��� the brown eyes  lower fell, ������  "Because,: you   see,   I   love  you!" ���  Still memory to a gray-haired  '   man ���.  That    sweet    child-face    is  showing.-���  Dear Girl! the grasses on her  grave  Have forty years been growing!  He lives to learn, in life's hard  school,  How  few  who  pass- above  him.   .      .-..���'  Lament their triumph and his  loss, .  Like her, ���: pecause they *  love him.  How few, if any, lie thought,  had ever been sorry to go  above him. They had beenglad  to do it. In life's stern school  he had found little kindness  but a great deal of harsh, ruthless treatment.  In their better moments men  have sensed that loving service done for others is not the  impractical, weakly sentimental thing which some have  made out. The distinguished  English novelist, A.C. Benson,  once lay for weeks at death's  door. When he recovered he  wrote: "In those hours that  which comforted me was not  the knowledge of my literary -  reputation or social standing;  still less the .thought of any  material possessions; rather it  was that on some occasions���  far too few,I confess ��� I had  ���been kind, to people.;."-  by PAT WELSH  ay  The Redrooffs and Welcome  Beach Recreation Commission  held its annual meeting Jan.  20 in/Redrooffs Hall. William  Grundy was in the chair. A" report of the work done during  the past year was read by Mrs.  M. Tinkley,, secretary, and  plans for the coming year discussed.

The orchard is back'of the now  bowling alley and it was a picture in those days with flowers  and lawn tf in front of the cottages, an outside badminton  court and a putting green all  kept in shape by the noted  gardener Will Allen who lives  in the West End on the school  road.  Bill kept .the vegetable and  flower gardens and the hotel  had vegetables freshly picked  each day arid the fresh flowers  on the tables looked lovely.  Bill Allan was a splendid gardener.  Sechelt boasted of four tennis courts in those days, two  on the waterfront and two almost where the Bank of Montreal is located. Tournaments  were held each Sunday and  some.of the top players journeyed to Sechelt to take part  in the games.

Browne) would make moonlight cruises during-the summer as far as the Skookurii-  chuck three times per week  for 50 cents the trip. On-the  other days the Comox Would  leave Porpoise Bay for Sechelt  via Pender Harbour. The trip  would take nine hours, the distance being 68 miles from Porpoise Bay wharf to Sechelt  wharf, the distance walking  being % of a mile.  lam told the Indians in the  Old days started to build a canal from Porpoise Bay to Sechelt to sawe them going 68  miles by water. I think the  government engineers stopped  the project.        '  It was a wonderful trip on  the Comox through the Skoo-  kumchuck to Pender Harbour  and then to Sechelt and the  fare was $2. Coffee was served and dancing enjoyed on the  voyage.  -The moonlight cruises would  -leave Porpoise Bay at 9 p.m.  and arrive back at midnight.  The Comox served all the logging camps with freight and  mail. It was a very popular  steamer and saved the operators of logging and sawmill  camps a lot of time and money.  During the summer the Union  S.S. held a dance'at the Pavillion in Sechelt or the dance  ,'hail at Selma Park, on alternate Saturdays. The lighting  in those days would be gas  lamps and they air had to be  filled and ready for the dance  in the evening.

The Union Steamships owned*Selma 'Park long  before' they took over Sechelt.  The Sechelt Pavillion is presently the Sechelt Theatre and  it \vas at the Pavillion the Saturday dances took place and  during? the week "roller skating  was enjoyed. .  Regarding the small canal  the Indians intended to build  from Porpoise Bay to Sechelt  in 1898, it was really-intended  to drain- off the swamp but' the  Indians thought it would be a  good idea to use it for taking  small craft from Sechelt Inlet  to the Gulf of Georgia. The engineers, knowing the difference in the tides had to stop,  operations on account of the  tide being three hours in the  difference in the Gulf of Georgia and therefore would flood  the place at each high tide.  While I am on the subject of  our Indian friends I would like  to say that in 1868 the first',  house was built on the reserve  and Bishop Durnier brought  fivie divisions of tribes to Sechelt, to meet in this house. In  1862- the Indians built the first  church at Pender Harbour  which wias destroyed by fire  in 1864.. The same year the  first baptism was administered  and by 1869 all the Indians in  the district were baptized by  Bishop p'Herbourz, who aiso '  administered confirmation in  1871. .       . ' ,  In August 1872 the first  church in Sechelt was built,  later destroyed by fire. The  first Catholic priests in Sechelt according to the old rec-  ords were Father Fouquette  and Father Chirouse -who ar- '  rived.in the year  1860.  At their annual general  meeting, members of the Sechelt Volunteer Fire Brigade  re-elected their officers, T.H.  Parish, fire chief; T.G. Robilliard, assistant chief; W. Wad-  dell, secretary-treasurer; W.L.  Billingsley and Harold Nelson, executive members.  G.O. Fahrni, auditor for the  brigade read his annual report  which will be forwarded to  Victoria.  It is hoped good progress  will # be made with the Fire  Hall duruig the coming year,  and that it will be in shape for  Centennial celebrations.  During 1957 the brigade attended 13 fires as compared  with 19 in 1956, and there  were six calls for the inhalator  During Fire Prevention  Week    in   October    another  drive will foe made for funds  and it is hoped the same generous response will be made as  in 1957.  Vacancies exist for two more  members and ' application  should be made to T.H. Parish.  Concluding a three day convention in the Memorial Community Centre, North Vancouver, Sechelt delegates were  among the 1358 who heard A.  F. Danley, western organizer  for Jehovah's Witnesses deliver the feature lecture "What  are the: Prospects for Lasting  'Peace?" ~  "Jehovah God's Kingdom is  the only remedy, the only hope  for lasting peace," Mr. Danley  stated. After acknowledging  the sincere efforts of men, particularly in this generation, he  said "Christ Jesus did not teach  us to pray for man's attempts  Coast News, Feb. 13, 1958    7  r '  to succeed. In the model prayer he taught us to pray for  God's Kingdom which will  bring God's will on earth as  in heaven."  Friday evening, local ministers turned their talents to  pantomimes, demonstrations  and instructive talks to show  the Witnesses how ib effective:  ly and thoroughly carry out  their divine commission - to  teach and preach. Saturday's  program was highlighted by  the complete water immersion  of 25 new dedicated ministers.  J.R. Fisbey, presiding minister of this area,' reports,the  next convention will be in  New York.

A most worthy and commendable boy's group, in the  form of Cubs and Scouts, is  slowly dying for lack of nutrition in this district, according to Mr. Gill, president of  the Sunshine Cdast' Council,  who came from Port Mellon to  address the Sechelt Recreation  Commission, Mon., Feb. 3.  Mr. Gill spoke sincerely and  simply about this world-wide  organization for boys and  young men, when he asked the  Commission to sponsor the  movement by forming a Group ^  Committee to assume matters  of policy.  This committee should be  formed, preferably, of fathers  with boys in the Cub Pack or  Scout Troop, or other interest- ���  ed men. There are over thirty  youngsters in the Cub Pack at  Sechelt ready to go on to  Scouts, even though, at present they are still unchartered.

If only five of the probably  thirty fathers of Cubs volunteered their attendance for one  meeting a month, they would  be doing a valuable service for  the boys* the leaders and the  community. They. would also  be doing themselves the biggest favor of all, watching  their own sons, as well as  the others, grow to manhood  with a strong sense of the proper values Nin life.  The Group Committee is appointed annually by the sponsors (Sechelt Recreation Committee) in .consultation .with  the Scouters. The duties are to  secure facilities for regular  meetings of the Cubs and  Scouts. The St. Hilda's Church  Hall is used for the purpose  here.  Other duties are to attend-  the business end.of administration, and to assist the Scout  leaders wherever possible,  without interfering in the actual running of the Cubs and  Scouts.  The most important duty, in  this district, is to ascertain that  there are always enough leaders to attend the boys. Thfe  should not be a difficult task,  as older brothers, as well as  fathers, are welcomed to the  group. - ' ;'  It is a well known fact that  boys, growing to manhood  through Cubs and Scouts, have  a greater, knowledge of how to  get along.with others- and how  to make their way in a world  fraught with bypaths. \  Fathers and brothers, this  is a call for help from the  young fellows in your ��familyj,  to give only a little of your  time, to show that you care  about a wonderful experience  your boy can share, and re|-  member all his life. x    f  The more leaders the GrouJ>  Committee appoints, the more  boys can join, and the more  easily parents can relax and  know that they are doing their  bit to fight the monster 'juvenile delinquency.'
