Array JUST  FINE   FOOD  DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  Phone GIBSONS 140  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 12, Number 16, April 16,  1959  -Prev&iielal Library  9 B�� C��  INTERVIEWS   STUDENT  FROM  YUGOSLAVIA  ���Sandra Lee Peterson, right of Port Mellon, was  one of the guest high school panelists who interviewed Maria Franulovich, center now living in  Anacortes, Wash, on KVOS-TV last Saturday,  (3-28). Maria was born and until recently lived  in Yugoslavia. Sandra is the daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. S: C. Peterson. She is feature editor of her  school paper and secretary of the art club. The  press conference is seen? weekly at 5.30 p.m. Saturdays on* Channel 12 and is directed' by Bill Taylor. Wayne Davis of Ladner is at left.  $2/000 in Scholarships  available within district  Some $2,000 is available in  scholarships and bursaries in  Sechelt school district for students attending high school,  W.S. Potter, E-phinstone High  School principal informed Gibsons and Area Ratepayers' association at its last meeting.  Mr. Potter thought this was  ���quite remarkable considering  the population numerically and  expressed the view it was indicative of close interest. Mr.  Potter was speaking on aids to  education offered at the federal, provincial and local level.  At the local level he cited the  offers of scholarships and bursaries by the Kiwanis, Headlands Service club, Legion  branches, PTA units? the Teachers  association and others.  (Explaining the difference between a scholarship and a bursary Mr. Potter said a scholarship was awarded on a basis  of ability regardless of need  while bursaries were offered  on a basis of need and not necessarily ability, in some instances a gift and in others, as a  loan only.  Describing federal government assistance Mr. Potter outlined the scheme of technical  training schools, the Canada  Council grants-in-aid to univer-  Board gives  Hough leave  A meeting of the Sechelt  board of school trustees was  held in Gibsons on April 6, one  week early in order that Mr.  Hough might attend before beginning his tour of the Old  Country. Best wishes for a hap-  'py holiday and safe journey  home were extended to Mr.  Hough, who has for many  years served on the board. Mr.  Hough was granted a leave of  absence for two months.  From the report of the Night  School director, and from those  who participated in the evening classes, it was evident that  these classes were very favorably received. A great deal of  credit is due George Cooper,  director for the past two years,  in; organizing, these classes and  keeping the public interested  and informed. It is with regret  that the board accepts Mr.  Cooper's resignation.  Mr. B. Dombroski has accepted the position as Night School  director for the 1959-1960 season. All persons interested in  night school courses of any  kind are requested to contact  the board office, and if sufficient interest is shown the  Night School director will engage qualified instructors and  arrange classes.  Further word regarding approval on the school budget  from the Department of Education was heard, but to date  no official consent has been received from the Cabinet.  The Principals' reports revealed open-house activities  during Education Week were  well attended by parents and  visitors, and appreciated by the  teachers and students.  sities and the numerous research scholarships offered  through the numerous universities.  Turning to provinical government efforts, Mr. Potter  said the department of education will pay one-half of the  fees of all first-class students  taking a full year of Grade  XIII or full first-year university.  The provinical department  will pay one-third of the fees  of the top 2,000 who achieve  second-class standing and are  taking a full year of Grade  XIII or first year university.  These are both payable only  upon application and the standing^ will:be.,.based,upon depact-....  mentaT 6i university 'examinations!  So far the department has  not definitey defined first or  second class standing, but at  UBC this is 80% or over for  first class standing, and 65%  to 79 % for second class.  A loan fund is administered  by UBC. The government has  authorized the university to  borrow $2,000,000 to set up a  revolving loan fund. This is  available to all qualified students, and is repayable but the  terms have not yet been announ  ced. It would be .available to  students taking courses not offered at UBC like librarianship  or dentistry.  As regards provincial bursaries, $60,000 has been set  aside for the current year. This  is a gift not re-payable, and its  granting is based in good part  upon need.  Mr. Potter added the thought  there was little reason for the  able student failing to get higher education.  Discussing curriculum standards Mr. Potter explained  that before the war a grade  eight certificate was sufficient  to get a job but now a university degree appears to be necessary. The present method of  teaching to the middle and  largest group of students had  resulted in a lessening of standards. Effort is now being  made to take care of the upper  level students in order to help  them maintain their mental  standards. More technical and  vocational training wasi a pressing need Mr. Potter added.  PTA  carnival  Elphinstone Elementary school  carnival will be held Saturday  night, April 18 in the School  hall and proceeds will be used  for some school project. Last  year school ground equipment  Was purchased for use of the  children.  The carnival will be replete  with bingo in charge of Kiwanis  club members, home baking,  candy, sewing, doll clothes, a  fish-pond, darts, guessing games  and a stall for boys only.  This is the only money raising  event of the year by the Elementary PTA. Any person with last  minute articles that have to be  picked up can telephone Mrs.  Feidler, convenor at Gibsons  145X.  100 DAYS  Howe Sound Pulp Division  of Canadian Forest Products at  Port Mellon has just passed the  first 100 days of injury free  operation. This was completed  on April 10.  This 100 days of injury free  operation portrays the feeling  of the employees towards their  safety contribution to St.  Mary's Hospital in the way of  a cash donation for safe operation. If the employees at Port  Mellon are able to work an additional 83 days ending June  30, without a lost time injury  they will be able to earn an  additional $150 for St. Mary's  Hospital.  In March, Reg Weston's "D"  Crew won the safety contest  for the month earning a contribution of $73 to St. Mary's Hospital. The St. Mary's donation  now stands at $163 for the  three months operation to date  and it is hoped that by the time  June 30 rolls around through  the safe operation at the plant  at Port Mellon that a substantial donation will have been accumulated. This donation will  be presented to the St. Mary's  representatives at a banquet  which will be held at Port  Mellon.  Aid for library  Gibsons Library fund is progressing quite well according  to library officials who announce some $70 has been donated by members with more  promised. Reason for the fund  is to provide further space by  an addition to the building this  summer.  Library officials also announce that during the few  days of this week and all. of  next week all books on ithe  delinquent list can be returned without fines being assessed.  Let's face it men! If you  can't resist a bathing beauty  parade don't try because there  will be one in Elphinstone High  School auditorium April 22.  It will be part' of' the St.  Mary's Altar society fashion  show and the big fashion show  of this season lor the Sunshine  Coast area. It is expected there  will be visitors from Sechelt  and points beyond in Gibsons  for this event.  There will be fashions modelled from Tasella Shoppe at  Sechelt and the Thriftee Dress  Shop in Gibsons. Floral decorations will be provided by  Anne's Flower shop in Sechelt.  Gibsons municipal tax rate  will be 13 mills for this year,  unchanged from last year, but  the school tax will rise four  mills to Vl9 mills. This was announced' at Tuesday night's  meeting ?of the village commission wh^en the budget bylaw  was introduced.  For municipal tax purposes  the village will have to collect  $24,280 for school purposes and  $12,330 ;' for    municipal    pur-  JoNn Clou  Granthams  author dies  John ?A.. Clou, 64, Granthams  Landing and author of the fiction story Caravan to Camul,  died April 13 in St. Mary's  Hospital, Garden Bay. ITie  funeral service took place Wednesday afternoon at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church  of which Mr. Clou was a devoted member. The service  was conducted by Rev. Denis F.  Harris. Cremation followed.  Graham Funeral Home was in  charge.  Mr. Clou was attending a  Legion executive meeting last  Thursday night when he collapsed. Firemen responded  promptly with the inhalator.  Dr.- H.F. Inglis ordered his removal to St. Mary's Hospital  and he and the fire crew on the  inhalator remained with him  until hospital doctors took  over.  Mr. Clou had a varied life.  He was 'born in the south of  England and came to Canada  in 1911. when 13 and for several years served with the Railway Mission of the Anglican  Church i**i Ss*?katchewati, in the  ' Vari'gttard'-'area with -Rev. E?R:.  Lindsay as a:_ crganist and  lay reader. Ho married his wife  Irene in 1914- at Swifr. Current  where* she joined him from  England.  Soon after that he started a  paper called the Southern S_n-  tinal at Vangunvd and experienced many ol the vicissitudes  experienced by publishers* of  weekly newspapers of those  days.  Stories  of British  Columbia  coastal  weather   had   reached  him in  Saskatchewan   and   in  1919 he moved to  Vancouver  where after numerous jobs he  established a hair-dressing business which   is  still   operating  but   under   another name.   He  lived in Burnaby for about 27  year   during   which   time   he  ���wrote his book A Caravan to  Camul which many people   of  the Sunshine Coast have read.  Nearly five years ago he and  his wife moved to Granthams  Landing    where    the    famous  blue  Clou   sign  denoting   the  pathway to the Clou home was  soon displayed. He intended to  write   more books   but   other  interests    occupied    his   time.  Some two years ago he became  treasurer of St. Bartholomew's  Anglican   church   and  as   the  Rev. Mr. Harris has said, Mr.  Clou   was   an   ardent   worker  and devoted churchman. Lawn  bowling was one of his recreations  and   stamp collecting   a  hobby which he had started at  the age of 14.  Besides his wife he leaves a  son Peter, of Vancouver and a  daughter, Mrs. Nancy Astrom  of Bamfield, Vancouver Island,  also six grandchildren.  St. Bartholomew's church  was filled for the funeral service. Honorary pall-bearers  were J. Atkinson, W. Boucher,  George Webb, Arcnie Mainwaring, John Wood and Ben Pinks.  Active pall - bearers were  members of the Canadian Legion Gibsons branch, J.R.W.  Mason. M. Martindale, R.F.  Haig, F. Bailey, J.R. Wilson  and J. Wheeler.  poses. The money for the  schools will be collected, then  handed over to the school board  Municipal income of $38,892  will be made up from the 13  mill tax levy amounting to  $12,330 plus the $15,480 provincial government grant,  $4,620 returned from a 1958  loan to the water department  and $2,262 unexpended in the  1958 budget.  Major expenditure will include $20,000 for roads including 26 street name signs, some  surfacing of North Fletcher rd.;  Dougal to.Beach; Trueman to  Bay to Dougal; culvert fills  and some grading, including  $5,000 covering general rnain-  tenance.  The water department expenditure will come to $16,905  of which all but $1,607 should  be covered by income with the  smaller amount being covered  from general income. There  will also be $2,300 to cover  street lighting costs.  Minister of Highways Gaglardi by letter suggested that  the filling of the ditch on Sell el Highway to provide a second traffic lane would be "as  simple as that, if possible at  all" but suggested any ideas  about it would receive careful  examination.  Building permits were issued  to Don Horsman for a five-  room, one storey dwelling to  cost $3,000; to Agatha MacKenzie for a combination garage  and boat house to cost $700;  to Sam Fladager for steps and  landing to cost $100 and to  Marian Lowden for a $200 garage.  Ferry link  is forecast  - Members of the, Sunshine  Coast Tourist Association were  told by Floyd North, secretary  cf Powell River, that he believed the Campbell River end  of the proposed ferry service  from Lund would more than  likely be started this year.  Mr. North said this during a  '?ecch in which he welcomed  a party of ACRA representa-  uve*. from Vancouver at a dinner in the Peninsula Hotel Sunday.  He was of the opinion that  the sooner the circle route from  Vancouver, through Langdale  to Lund and across to Campbell River then down to Nanaimo and other points, was  put into operation the better  it would be for the Sunshine  Coast.  There were 37 at the dinner  with ACRA representatives  present from various points including Vancouver Island. It  was explained to the meeting  the circle route would enable  tourists to avoid doubling back  as they have to at present.  Reason for members of  ACRA being present was to out  line ACRA objectives with a  view to having the Sunshine  Coast auto court proprietors  join the ACRA organization.  The matter was left over for  consideration of the executive  and later meetings.  ACRA officials present were  Tom Allen, president, Miss  Leah Shaw and Ed Bodnarchuk  vice-presidents; Jack Luck-  hurst, past president and Tom  Shortreed, secretary.  Accounts totalling $315.95  were ordered paid with $125  to the Workmen's Compensation Board, $63.65 for general  expense and $98.80 for fire protection and the remaining  $28.50 on small accounts.

There is a strong report going  the rounds that the men of the  church will be tea-pourers but  who will take the first hour is  a matter for a toss-up, competition is reported to be keen.  Tyro club  is organized  Fifteen boys with an average  age of 12 years were enrolled  into a Tyro group recently organized at the home of Joseph  Duncan, their leader. The boys  are members of United Church  Sunday school in Gibsons and  meet every Saturday at 2 p.m.  Mr. Duncan has outlined a  wide field of activities for the  group and has purchased  through the church necessary  equipment to maintain the  work.

Power and costs  Quite a bit of conversation is taking place on the subject  of power rates and comparisons have been made with other  places. Some of these comparisons are without regard to basic  facts.  Most antagonists when dealing with power rates in British  Columbia point to the power costs enjoyed by Winnipeg. It is  their right but they should inquire closely into why Winnipeg  _aas cheaper power than Vancouver or British Columbia.  It would not take any expert in- power economics very  long to put his finger on one great factor in .all power costs, the  cost of production. Some will ask why should costs vary between  Manitoba and British Columbia? The answer does not require  ���much digging.  If you have ever visited the Lake of the Woods in Ontario  and noted that vast reservoir of water, the level of which is controlled from year to year by international agreement, then you  ���will, have a starting point. From the Lake of tne Woods flows the  Winnipeg River which passes over various minor water hazards  to a point where dams have been built and two power plants provide sufficient power for the city of Winnipeg and a network of  lines into agricultural communities.  The building of dams on the Winnipeg River for power  purposes is a minor project compared to what has to be done in  British Columbia. There is not the same all-year reservoir available as is provided by the Lake of the Woods for Manitoba power  users. In British Columbia numerous dams to impound water  liave to be constructed.  The point which, should be obvious by now is that it is  (cheaper to get power from Lake of the Woods water than from  ���ihe waters of the various power sources in British Columbia. A  second important point is that the Manitoba power system was  "built many years ago when labor costs were not at their present  level.  It is only within the last decade or so that British Columbia's power needs have been really pressing and in a time when  ��;osts of building and production were at their highest. The Manitoba power system is divided roughly between the Winnipeg  ?Electric company and the Manitoba Power Commission which  delivers power developed chiefly by Winnipeg Electric.  The Manitoba Power Commission was established in 1919  ���sri-ile the B.C. Power Commission came into being in 1945. This  should tell the story sufficiently for the reader to get the idea  why power is cheaper in Manitoba and Winnipeg particularly.  To recapitulate, the Manitoba power system started many,  zioany years ago when costs were lower than they are today. The  'British Columbia power systems are of more recent vintage and  Built largely during the period of high costs. Also it is easier to  dam Manitoba waters than it is to dam British Columbia waters.  There will be those people who will jump to the conclusion the Coast News is defending British Columbia power producers. Such is not the case. The Coast News prefers a careful  summation of a situation and this- is what has occurred here. If  ���anyone feels these views are wrong, they have the right to express their own views by letter.  A candid Mr. MacDonald  Mr. Donald MacDonald. leader of the Ontario socialist  ���party, is to be commended for his candor. A legislative committee  suggestion that companies should be allowed to tell their side  at the story when their workers are being ���*�� iganized would be a  had thing in his opinion. In fact, according to the paper, such  ���permission would make it "extremely difficult" for unions to  ��xpand.

The name for Canada was  probably derived from a Huron-  Iroquois term kanata that meant  village or community. Jacques  Cartier first used it, in 1534, to  refer to the Indian community  of Stadacona. It was then applied  to the St. Lawrance River and  later to the whole counitry. It  became the popular designation  for the colony of New France,  as distinguished from Acadie.  After the British conquest the  official description of the colony  until 1791 was "the province of  Quebec." But the term "Canada''  continued in popular usage and  came into official use with the  Canada Act (or Constitutional  Act) of 1791, which divided the  province into Lower and Upper  *<"n the passage of the  British North America Act in  1867, the name given to the federation of Upper Canada, Lower  Canada, New Brunswick and.

If you want to encourage  people from the city to come  and retire on your beautiful  Sunshine Coast I think they  should be assured at least that  they will not wake up in the  morning to find a herd of cattle in their gardens. My wife  woke me one morning to look  cut of the window. She said  there was a moose in the garden. You guessed it, it was no  moose but a big black cow with  horns three feet across, with  his read up against the front  room window.  Some day I think my deep  .freeze is going to be full of sirloin steaks. So farmers please  keep these cows in your own  farm lands.  J.W. Edwards.

At the present time we are persecuted by a vicious animal resembling a great dane whose  favorite sport is to pick a fight  with smaller dogs, the smaller  the better. My two old dogs  who are never allowed at large  and only out when we are with  them have been severely mauled by this animal.  He wears no license and apparently makes his headquarters at the Municipal < Hall  where he lurks in company  with a big boxer to take on the  smaller fry. Recently this pair  almost killed a small friendly  puppy. Perhaps the owner of  this animal does not think  enough of his dog to pay a license fee as I do and is proud  of the fact he owns such a fighter. We understand he belongs  to Selma Park. We wish he  would stay there.  He has now decided to come  on to my porch looking for my  old dog whose life is beoming  a misery. It might be a good  idea to enforce the law and  pick up a dangerous animal of  this type. There are a number  of stray dogs here which our  visitors pitch out of cars usually by the Indian Village. I have  had a little dog here over a  week, a black and white bull  terrier would like to find the  owner. He also is terrified of  the fawn great dane.  Alice Amelia French.

So she has an eagle eye for the large  economy size in vitamins, and many other things, when  she shops. This way she keeps the family budget in line.  The Minister of Health and Welfare at Ottawa has  a budget too. He uses it to pay for various important  services. Among these are Family Allowances and Old  Age Benefits.  Money for the Minister of Health and Welfare's  budget comes through the Minister of Finance. This  is true of other departments also.  It's no secret how the Minister of Finance obtains  this money. He gets it largely in taxes from millions of  Canadians like you. If he spends more than he gets  from you, he must turn around arid borrow from you  the amount he has overspent ... or else create new  money.  The creation of new money is one factor that leads  to inflation ��� when the dollar buys less and less. So,  as a thrifty Canadian, you are wise to ask government  only for those services you are willing to pay for . . .  with taxes.  Personally, you try to pay as you go, to live within  your income.

Dane of UBC department of  Slavonic studies showed how  the Russian post-revolution educational system developed  from a loose system into one  that was tight with a greater  potential in the education of  students.  He outlined how the early  days led to complete chaos  when there was no discipline  and there was nothing orderly  from the top down. A realization grew slowly that a return  to traditional concepts was  needed with strict discipline  and one educational system  passed by a central committee.  In 1936 the psychological and  aptitude teats were thrown out  and in 1939 a five-year plan  leading to university education  ���was announced but not really  effective until after tli_ war.  Now it is expected that by 1960  there will be a ten year plan  which would allow students to  progress through the education-  el setup.  Mr. Dane explained the educational system by graph with  a four year grade school which  would be terminal and ?pupils  must pass or go to the. labor  reserve. Then another?, three  years of grade school follows  with the same result, pass1 or  go to the labor reserve. Three  high school years follow from  which the student goes to university or polytechnic institution. Mr. Dane pointed out that  of the 4.3 of the educational potential from lower grades who  reach high school about 1.3  graduate. Then he added about  one million apply for university entrance but about one-quarter of them are accepted.  Under   the Russian   system,  Mr. Dane said, when you flunked but you were definitely  through and you reached a dead  end with only labor reserves  open. In such reserves boys are  included from 15 to 19 and  girls from 16 to 18 years of age  There was a text book shortage generally because of party  line ' changes with books that  were good one year being dy-.  namite the next year. Teacher  training started in grade seven  and carried on through Polytechnic but he added salaries  were surprisingly low.  Included in the educational  system are labor schools for  those who flunk their way to  the labor reserve and these labor schools specialize in. manual labor for those flunking  grade four and trades for those  failing at grade seven. Those  failing grade ten are trained  for supervisory labor jobs and  farming.  Students taking higher education are paid salaries for attending but the salaries are  manipulated, driving students  towards needed skills. To make  a decent living one must get to  the top, Mr. Dane said.  Somewhere along the line  Premier Kruschev took fright,  as Mr. Dane explained it, when  he discovered there was a reaction against work with the  hands and as a result he plans  to re-organize the system on  an eight year basis with the  accent on productive work. He  also showed how the Russians  were placing prioity on scientific levels rather than on consumer goods with the result  nothing new was being developed in this line, the industries concerned being satisfied  with copying western world  products only.  I have just read the autobiog-  rahpy of the novelist, Lloyd C.  Douglas: Time to Remember.  The author intended to write a  second volume but he died in  February 1951, a few weeks  after completing the first book.  This remarkable man began his  writing career at 52 and in 20  years wrote books with a circulation of eight million.  There was one passage in his  book which greatly interested  me. Here it is: "Happily for me,  I have always been able to forget the details of events that  have caused me much suffering.  I have even forgotten the names  of people who, through the years,  have wronged me."  No man, could be as much, in  the public eye as Douglas with-  12-20; 40  Live in and love the casual  comfofF and good looks of this  daytime favorite.

His books were inspirational in the best sense of that  hackneyed word; they must have  meant entertainment and genuine help for millions.  X    *    *  Some book reviewers made up  their minds that they didn't like  the Douglas point cf view and  branded as spurious and superficial whatever he wrote. But he  carried on without rancour or resentment and gained a spiritual  victory.  Recently I read an article in a  magazine by one who has made  a specialty of interviewing famous comedians and other well-  known artists. I was somewhat  surprised to learn that all "fan*-  mail" was not what I had supposed it to be. He writes that  even the most popular entertainers such as Bob Hope, Bing  Crosby receive a good share of  critical and often abusive mail.  Of course, most letters are appreciative but it doesn't take  much abuse to spoil a man's day  and one deliberately snarling letter may offset a dozen complimentary ones.  *    *    *  Some very succes��?-u.l artists  are extremely sensitive to criti-  ��*-*im and the death of the poet  Keats Has been attributed to a  cowardly anonymous letter  which he brooded over until  everything else was blanked  out. The habit of brooding over  resentments is widespread; one  of the commonest failings of our  weak human nature. But it can  be overcome and to ignore insults is a sure sign of maturity;  that we really have grown up.  A minister told me that, at the  close of a long pastorate, a man  in* the congregation said to him:  "Did you know that I've been  mad at you for a long time?"  The minister replied that he  didn't know anything about it.  The puzzled man went on: "Isn't  that strange? I have been angry  at you for 20 years. It has made  me very unhappy and now I find  that you didn't even know about  it."  *     *    *  That reveals the utter folly of  nursing resentments; it is a form  of self-punishment. Ages ago the  Roman philosopher, Seneca, said  "Anger is like rain; it breaks itself on what it falls." Hatred is  ,a kind of spiritual jaundice. It  colours everything with bitterness and prejudice. It is a genuine victory to overcome bitterness as Lloyd Douglas did; life  has no finer achievement. It was  after he had forgiven a man who  tried to injure him that John  Nelson, a Christian of two centuries ago, said: "My soul became like a watered garden."

British Columbia's first Epilepsy Centre has just opened at  435 West Broadway, Vancouver. The centre's professional  staff will co-operate with physicians treating epileptic patients anywhere in the province and also carry out specific projects independently.  All such work will be designed to improve the lot of  men, women and children afflicted with epilepsy in this  province.  Announcing the opening,  G.H.D. Hobbs, chairman of the  Epilepsy Division, B.C. Society  of Crippled Children, commented: "We are starting in a  modest way but we are hopeful that the services of the centre can be steadily expanded  in the fairly near future. There  are, by the best estimates now  available to the division, 20,000  epileptics living in B.C. and  thousands of them are not  aware of how much modern  medical treatment can do for  them."

The week in question  is May 4 which has been designated "Safety Week" by the  Joint Forest Products Safety  Committee, sponsors of the  campaign.  "No-Accident" safety flags in  hundreds of camps and mills  will be raised on the Monday  morning to start the campaign.  If there is an- accident during  the week, the flag must be lowered.
