More than ^one, case .of this  type has been brought to the attention of the Coast News,  What to do about it?'It is a prdbleta arid its roots are fed  by many sources and one of them, is lack, of sometliirig else to do.  One angle that shouldbe explored is the lack of trie appreciation of the value of authority in present day life. Th need for  explanation of comrhon serise' "rules of life" seems out of place  when one considers the vast? sums of money spent on education,  in its varied forms.      j    V   . ;     >  Strange as it may seepi to some people there is a way to?  gain respect and that is to see that the rules of every day living,  are riot forgotten.

V  ���'������   Fear is what the vandal thrives ori. Don't: pay taxes for  police forces and then withdraw into a/shell because of fear. ���  Urge the government to abolish police forces and saye,su.ch. taxation. You will not like it but if fear is to reign supreme we  might as well do without police. ,     x .:?'      .     ^      , -  ���%&&&fa  Prepared by the Research.

Mrs. Vbleca^ reported^ Dr. McGregor said he felt "the best

In   various   workshops, some-

It was also noted at this confer sjnce that there is no hope of

!Ihe basis 'for recommendations to the Royal Commission,
on Education, headed by Dean
Chant, approved ? by the . B.C.
Parent Teacher's^ Federation
were: -,-.-   -. '
Public must accept; responsibility for the education of'their
children and they must support
the highest ideas of education.
Children should.?'..be educated
according to abilities.
Education must strive for a
balance between science and humanities- -■■ •-■■ .•..•■' -yy-J:
Education must give;, guidance
of career and some opportunity
ito begin preparation!-for occupational and vocational life. -•
- The standards of teachers
should be raised so that all teachers require: three years academic
training before , entering the
classroom. Also, frequent detailed inspections should be carried
on in every classroom.

Little Leaguer* in jour family „r neighborhood are excellent picture

''Play Ball!"
The clean sharp whack .as wood
meets leather —- is there any other
sound that's a surer sign of spring?
It's baseball time around the
. country and no picture-taker has
to wait for the big stadium-game
to get exciting action shots. There's
plenty of picture material awaiting you at any neighborhood park,
playground or empty lot.
If your household boasts a young
man in a visoredvcap wearing a
baseball mitt, just follow him
almost any Saturday morning.
Otherwise, amble over to the nearest park or school playground and
follow the sound of high-pitched
voices until .you're right in the
midst of a game in action. There it
is — every bit as good for snapshooting as what yoiivsee bh a large'
stadium diamond ~ the pitcher
winding up and exploding into a
pitch, the stance of the batter, the
swipe at the bafiV the quick movement of the players, the roar of the
spectators, the?grim:faced referee,
the bench filled with, eager!yo!ung
"replacements." ''  y.f; /-'J:;    '?•?'*
A word about camera \equip-
ment first: it isn't even necessary
to have  a  camera with- a fast
shutter unless you're planning to
concbhtrate^bn the running action
of the game.' Your trusty box
camera can actually do wonders
with the material at hand, for a
speed of l/25th of a second is all
you need to catch the dramatic
highlights of the play.
With a simple camera, however*
you'll do well to use your flash
equipment even if there's a bright
sun in the sky. Flash will increase
the effective speed of your shutter
to the point where it's ab%it the
equivalent of l/100th of a second
— or fast enough to catch all the
action of your subjects..
The. way you handleyour camera can make a world of difference
to the final prints; This is ho time
to have to fuss with adjustments
— sq have fresh filip in your
camera, exposure and distance
pre-set. for the general prevailing
conditions- Try to shoot from
waist level, if,you can. That way,
you wont miss • any, of the •' fast
action which may be over by= the
time you raise the camera"to your
eye.   .,; ■■.   • • '       .,. _ ... .  •.•;."••'
