RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      9*=50     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  Removal of grades seven and  eight from high schools to elementary school is advocated  in a brief to the Chant Commission on Education by a committee representing the Se-  chet School district. The committee also recommended establishment of kindergartens,  an accelerated pace for the  smarter students and a special  work channel for those unable  to keep up with the average  student.  The committee also urged a  more extensive program in  literature from grade four and  more drill in arithmetic fundamentals.  The committee members are:  Mrs. Cloe Day, commercial  teacher,* Mrs. . Iris Smith,  Home Ec. teacher; Mr. Robert  Burn��, municipal clerk; Mrs.  N_R. McKibbin, parent; Mr.  E._Nf. Henniker, bank manager -  Mrs. R.F. Donley, school board  member; Mrs. Frances L. Flem-  ming, teacher; Mrs. B. Rankin,  girls' counsellor; Mr. L.R.  Peterson, teacher; Mrs.'Margaret Slater, teacher; Mrs.  Grace Wiren, elementary teachers consultant and Mr. W-S.  Potter, principal, Elphinstone  High school.  Here is the brief minus a  preamble which leads into the  following:  The generaT topics we propose to cover in an attempt to  convince that our suggested  >ch\anges in the educational  system are based on s.ound xea-  V eoning and will improve the  7 educational system and there-'  by our whole society are:  1. Changes in the overall  curriculum to allow for: a. acceleration; b. retardation; cv  full scope for , individual dif-"  ferences and the development  of the individual as opposed to  mass production.  .<��������� ;: -2. -C<Mt&rA&ha<W  will enrich?^ the   present  program, make, it more practical .  in some instances and generally assist   in carrying  out the  ideals of topic 1.  3. Improvements in general  administration and general duties of teachers which we believe will go far towards solving the teacher shortage difficulty and regaining for our  public schools the prestige  which an educational system  should have.  All through our elementary  school and right up to grade 9  we are expecting all children  to conform to the pattern set  out in our departmental bulletin��. Teachers must so conduct  their classes as to mold every  child just as close to the pattern as possible. They must  do everything in their, power  to keep that child with hi�� age  group, see that he develops  socially and physibally, and  keep h-im "in the groove" so  that he can go on into high  school with the class.  To assist in meeting the  problem of individual differences in academic aptitude, we  believe that an acceleration  program should be instituted  very early! for the very apt  with a modified regular program for the slow. Therefore  we recommend:  1. The setting up of kindergartens as part of the public  school system ��� pre-grade 1  classrooms which pupils 5  years of age may attend and  which  may   retain  6-year-olds  Teenagers  to  Wilson Creek Teen Age club  held its get acquainted meeting Feb. 27 iri the Community  hall. There was a good response and an enjoyable evening ^vas spent.  It was decided to hold the  first general meeting Fri..  March 6 at 8 p.m. in the Hall,  and hold an election of officers. Refreshments will be  served.  Teenagers on the Peninsula  are cordially invited to join  this club.

The promotion of 5-year-  olds to Grade 1 if they are able  to pass the readiness tests  early in September, and  3. That the primary section  of elementary school be a continuous, progressive course to  be mastered by pupils in 2, 3  or 4 years according to individual ability and achievement  as measured by daily work and  a series of standardized achieve  ment tests in reading (oral and  written), language (oral and  written), number work, mech-  $211,000  in estimates  for schools  The Board of School Trustees reported at their meeting Feb. 23, that a letter has  been received from the office  of the deputy minister of education, to the effect that projects and estimates totalling  $211,000 as submitted by  School District No. 46, are approved for referendum purposes as follows:  Acquiring and developing  school sites:  Hopkins; Landing -Elementary  ��� new site $     4,500  Elphinstone Jr.-Sr.  addition 4,500  Sechelt Jr. High, new    12,000  Pender Harbour High, improving  present site      10,000  New.

Under  statutory regulations there  must be ten clear days following notification to the ratepayers by public advertisement. Explanations of these requirements will be published  in a following edition.  The secretary has been instructed to write a letter of  thanks to the Egmont Community Centre club for their kindness in allowing the Egmont  School the use of their piano.  Letters - of commendation  have been sent to Sandra Peterson, for an honorable mention,  and to Nick Gilbert, for an  award of merit, received recently from the Pulp and Paper Industry. Unfortunately  these names were omitted  from the previous report of  award winners.  An evening meeting was  held Feb. 27 to finalize the  1959 budget for review by the  finance committee and department representatives at 9 a.m.  March 3, in Vancouver.  DeMolay camp  The third annual winter  workshop for British Columbia  DeMolays will be held during  the weekend of March 7 and 8  at Camp Elphinstone, better  known as the Y Camp.  The DeMolay members will  start arriving on early ferries  Saturday and welcoming ceremonies will commence at  12:30 o'clock. Meals will be  prepared by one of the chefs  of Shaughnessy Hospital. Pat  Murphy will be workshop director. No cars will be allowed  at the camp. They will be left  at either Horseshoe Bay or the  Nanaimo terminal of Black  Ball Ferries.  anics   of writing,  and general  comprehension ability.  Secondary schools from  Grade 9 up have a system of  credits and promotion by  course, while grades 7 and 8  are promoted by grade, carry  no credits, and conform in near  ly every way with the elementary school pattern. In a junior  senior high school, too, the  matter of time-table, general.  administration, social affairs  and extra-curricular activities  are made much more difficult  by the inclusion of grades 7  and 8. In any attempt to program for individual differences, it would be much more expedient to plan with the grades  7 and 8 in the elementary  school so that a double channel of progress can lead up to  a much broader secondary program.  Junior high schools are in  operation in some parts of the  province, but in the more rural areas, separate junior and  senior high schools are not  practical because of the added  expense for small groups. In  junior high schools, too, the  some diversity remains as to  credits and non-credits, promotion by grade or by subject.  Pupils are compelled to go to  school to the age of 15 years  or to the end of grade 8. If at  the end of grade 8, a pupil  could look forward to school  in another building and under  different conditions, he might  be inclined to continue his education. Therefore we recommend:  1. That grades 7 and 8 be  made part of the elementary  school.  2. That a "social promotion"  channel be offered from grade  4 through grade 8 to run parallel to the normal channel.  ,3. That those pupils who are  'hot able to "achieve at" the regular rate and to pass a series of  standardized tests at the conclusion of each grade be expected to repeat the grade or  go into the Social Promotion  channel.  4. That very bright pupils  on the regular program of the .  intermediate section of elementary school, grades 4 through  8, be allowed to proceed at an .  accelerated pace and prepare  for high school in a 4-year  period if they are able to master the courses.  5. That the regular channel  be altered to include a language in grades 7 and 8 at  least, a more extensive program of literature from grade  4 onward and more drill in  arithmetic fundamentals.  6. That industrial arts and  the sewing part of home economics be held over for second-  (Continued on Page 3)  D  artce c  lub  ffi.  names ameers  Gibsons Area Square Dance  group enjoyed another success^-  ful evening on Saturday night.  More newcomers were welcomed and introduced to  square dancing by congenial  caller, Bud Blatchford.  Refreshments were served at  the end of the evening, and dur  ing this period a general discussion was held regarding the  forming of an organized club.  The suggestion was well received and Harry; Robertson  was installed as president by  reclamation.  Other officers elected were:  vice-president, Mrs. A. Robertson, Secretary, Mrs. J.  Clement; treasurer, Ed Kul-  lander, and social convenor  Mrs;. W. Hendrickson. It was  decided that membership  would be $2.50 per year.  Members were in favor of  holding another dance this  coming Sat., March 7 at S:30  p.m. to the accompaniment of  records, as a caller is not available. It is hoped then to vote  on a name for the club, also  to draw up club by-laws.  Next "caller" dance will  probably be on March 28.  Special thanks goes to Hopkins  Landing Association for its  co-operation regarding the hall  More members can be accommodated.  Seven are injured  i|i two accidents  Six teenagers were injured  Friday night of last week when  a car in which they were riding and a truck collided on  Suf-shine Coast Highway about  onj? mile-and-a-half ncsrth of  Peninsula Hotel.

Since the report for the first  half of 1958 the number of regular f contributors has increased  39^ hringing the total to 188 by  the * end of^thfe" yearAW^iressei  in percentages of the total permanently employed force at the  mill this means an increase from  jwrt. under 60% to approximately  75%.  This higher participation has  resulted in a higher total of contributions, which amounted to  $1,505.54 for 1958 and, together  the balance brought forward  from 1957, gave the executive a  total of $1,597.04 for distribution to the oganizations eligible  under the Fund's statute.  iThe following disbursments  were made: $125 each to the  Kinsmen's Polio Fund, Canadian  Red Cross. Kiwanis Easter  Seals, OES Cancer and Cancer  Research Funds, St. Marv's  Hospital, Salvation Army, Chil-  drens Hospital, Sunshine Coast  Boy Scouts and C. N. Institute  for the Blind. Port Mellon Community church $25 and S-*.  Mary's Hospital Equipment Fund  $300, making a total of $1,450.  This leaves an amount of $147.04  in hand for disbursment in 1959  It is hopsd that the fund will  receive between S1.500 and $V  600 in contributions in 1959,  which would allow tlie increase  in the Standard contributions,  fr:m $125 1o $150 to eligible  organizations and still leave a  small amount in hand for any  appeals not anticipated at this  t'me.  The executive committee will  discuss this matter in the next  meeting, which will be called in  the near future and the decisions  of  which  will  be  made  public.  ew speed limits  Speed limits have been raised in various sections of the  Sunshine Coast and as far as  the Coast News can ascertain  here are the highway speed  limits now in force from Port  Mellon to Earls Cove:  Port Mellon to Soames Point  40, unchanged; Soames Point  to Granthams bridge, 30, unchanged; bridge to top of Granthams hill, 20, unchanged; top  of hill to Gibsons village, 30.  unchanged; through Gibsons  vi.lage, 25, up five; from Super  Valu store to Davis Bay, 50.  up 10; Davis Bay area, 30, up  five; Davis Bay to Selma Park,  50, up 10; Selma Park, 30, up  five; Selma Park to Sechelt,  40, unchanged; Sechelt village,  25, up five; Sechelt to Kleindale, 40, unchanged; Kleindale  to Earls Cove 50, up 10.  eral Hospital and on the critical list with head injuries; Susan Fearn, a sister, with a  broken leg and arm and other  injuries", Don Sharpe, Clare  Mulligan, Mike Dragan and  Darlene Lymer also received  injuries which are not regarded a�� serious.  The young people were  headed towards Gibsons when  a Hansen's Transfer truck  came around the curve and the  two vehicles collided. The impact forced the passenger car  off the road and sent the truck  hurtling into an RCMP car  which, headed towards Gibsons also, stopped when it saw  a collision.inevitable.  RCMP are investigating the  collision. The police report the  car containing the teenagers  wag on its correct side of the  road. The car was badlyi damaged but the truck, partially  loaded, did not suffer too  heavily.  ..,. An wnusualjaccident resulted.  Sunday afternoon ih sending  James Brown of Gibsons to St.  Mary's Hospital where he is  being treated for head injuries  and contusions.  He was driving his car on  Sechelt Highway near the  School road when,on the turn  the door of his car opened and  he fell partially out. Fred  Strom who was with Brown  tried to pull him back but the  car, uncontrolled, smashed into a stump.  Fire destroys  Butler home  A fire causing damage estimated at about $6,500 destroyed the home occupied by Mr.  and Mrs. Sid Butler and two  children Feb. 25 in the log  boom area of Roberts Creek.  No one was home at the time.  How it started no one knows  but the fierceness of the blaze  suggests it might have smouldered for some time before  bursting into flame. People living nearby had no inkling of  the place being on fire until  a burst of flame engulfed the  building. The house was part  of the late Dr. White estate.  Neighbors strived to save  what they could but the rapidity of the blaze did not allow  them to get near the place.  The Butlers had their possessions insured. Not a thing was  saved.  The family, following the  fire, were given quarters to  stay in untii they could help  themselves. In the meantime  various organizations have  stepped in to help out. The  union in Port Mellon where  Mr. Butler works, and the  Kinsmen club in Gibsons have  provided some cash.  A benefit dance will be held  in Roberts Creek Community  Hall, Friday evening, March 6  tc oAd the family. The dance,  which will start at 9,30, has  been organized by the Kinsmen  club of Gibsons who have arranged for the Mellonaires to  provide music.  A collection will be taken at  the door in aid of the family.  Refreshments will be served  by the Kinettes.  The Canadian Junior Red  Cross sent relief supplies to  assist youth in 26 nations in  1958.  This is the type of hospital  sought for the Sunshine Coast  It is one that is for Campbell  River. The Sunshine Coast  Hospital Committee organized  recently at Sechelt and representative of the peninsula front-  Port Mellon to Pender Harbour is now at work assessing  the situation along the coastal  area for its future needs. The  committee is of the opinion it  will take several years work to  get such a hospital for Tthis  area. In the meantime meai.  bers of the committee are laying the groundwork for future  development   of   their  studies.  Port Mellon  union assists  east strikers  The International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers, Port Mellon-  has issued'..the following statement:  Our local on Feb. 24 sent the  -; following -.wire    to;    Premier  Smallwood:  "Local 297 of the International Brotherhood of Pulp.  Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers wishes to go-on record as  concurring with the other labor organizations in Canada  who are shocked at the unchristian and un-Canadian  methods being used against the  organized wood workers ie  -'-_.v_.uu--ular.ci."  "A copy was also sent to Lester Pearson, federal Liberal  leader:  "Early in February the local  sent $100 to aid the loggers in  Newfoundland and the locals a}  a general meeting on Feb. 25  voted to assess themselves $5  apiece for further aid. Tnis will  mean over $1,000 more will be  sent to  help  the strikers.  "The Anglo - Newfoundland  Co. has stated that they 'do  not intend to pioneer a reduction in the work week.' This  is very misleading. The IBPS  & PMW locals in Newfoundland have a 40 hour week except the shift workers wh&  work 42 hours per week. Their  base rate is $1,78 per hour. We  have not heard yet why the  IBPS & PMW local at the  Anglo-Newfoundland mill is  not supporting the IWA but  cur other two locals at Corner-  brook and Deer Lake in Newfoundland are helping the IWA  strikers both financially and  morally.  "The IWA men have been  working a 60 hour week for  SI.Co per hour. The IWA accepted a conciliation award  which would have cut their  work hours to 54 per week at  the same take home pay and  would have given them an additional 5c per hour. This  award was refused by the  Anglo-Newfoundland Co. This  conciliation award was unanimous, even the company's norn  inee on the board agreed with  the award. Premier Small-  wood's support for the Anglo-  Newfoundland Company's  stand is almost incomprehensible." oast l$zws  2   Coast News, March 5; 1959.

The sincerity of members on the committee which  produced the brief is revealed in their direct approach to numerous angles.  In the preamble of the brief, the committee summarized  its feelings as follows: "The committee, as a group closely associated with the educational progress in our own area, resents  much of the present clamorous criticism of the educational system and feel that the critics are too frequently those people ignorant, not only of our aims and objectives, but also of even a  "basic knowledge of the curriculum as it stands.  "We feel, too, that much of the criticism of modern youth  is misplaced, exaggerated and unfair. However,, our resentment  against the 'critics is not so great as to blind us to the fairness  of some of the criticism, nor to prevent our feeling that improvement is needed. And we have found that when considered opin- ������.  ion and constructive criticism is requested, most people give in-,  telligent and helpful suggestions.  "Our own opinions are supported by answers to questionnaires to the extent that we want to recommend changes in curriculum, in administrative procedure, and in the basic philosophy of education itself. The premise that 'every man's child' can  ������master the fundamental skills' and that a 'common course' can  possibly 'meet the needs and capacities of both bright and dull'  is wrong. If we are going to offer a 'challenging' program, to 'every man's child' we must avoid the mass production methods of  our present curriculum and stop trying to make pupils with vast  individual differences in ability! and desire conform to the pattern."  The desire to return grades seven and eight to elementary school jurisdiction is sensible because that is where youngsters up to grade eight should be. They are in a more comfortable position mentally in being "top dogs" at the elementary  school than being "underdogs" in a high school. Their age is  more suitable for companionship with the younger unsophisticated than with older types. True they are intermediates but  nothing more and as such should not be exposed to more than  they are suited.  Having kindergarten classes would be a great help in  sorting out the slow from the smart which would be of benefit  to teachers in all grades as well as the pupils. It would mean the  grade one teacher would have more of a chance to teach those  who can' absorb more readily. The slower ones would get better  coaching in a kindergarten class.  The brief also suggests a "social promotion" channel  which means the practically hopeless student would continue  advancing with his or her original classmates in the hope he  or she will pick something along the route which will be of some  use. On the other hand the brief also suggests an accelerated program for the smart student. This appears to be a definite break  with a system that worked against the smart student. Such a  plan would allow the smart student to reap a reward and advance a�� fast as conditions would allow instead of being held  hack and classed as a "square".  There are many other interesting points in the brief worths'! of comment but those mentioned here appear to be the main  ones and if put into practice should do most good to the great-  set number. The brief is one which should be read by all. It  does show there is a drift away from theories which have proven  impractical to something which in the past has proven of great  er benefit.  Unpredictable phenomena  There are times when a man who makes substantial products like iron bars, tin sheets, cement pipes and big trucks  wishes fashions would change for him more frequently. Maybe  Mr. Webster nad an inkling of the future of women's hats when  he gave as synonym�� for fashion: rage, vogue, craze, and fad  Feminine fashions in headgear are among the ethereal  and ephemeral unpredictable psychological phenomena of a phenomenal universe. Of course, it makes for good business and  after all the American standard of living depends upon keeping  the wheels humming in industry. If some -subtle inexplicable  mental process compels women to demand a new style each two  ��r three months it means work for the millinery trade, work for  the producers of materials, and work for the salesgirls. There  are two facts we should mention. Firist, no man should be forced  to help his wife choose one of the modern, eye-arresting combinations; second, we hope mass production will reduce prices so  if the ladies want a new hat a month they can have it.  i  YOUR ORDER CAN BE TAKEN AT  ALLOW  ONE WEEK  FOR PROCESSING  The Thrill That Comes Once in a Lifetime   . .... ��� Webster classic^  PuBL-IC  ACKWOWLeDS^e/viT  OF   "We  PARTTOgfeSHlP    FOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY  By APPOINTMENT  Phone T.

Though we  have known for quite some  time that Social Credit is op  posed to organized labor in  B.C. we did not expect to see  the leaders of the trade union  movement vilified and discredited on the floor of this  house. The best rebut to his  remarks was made by Pat  O'Neal, secretary-treasurer of  the B.C. Federation, when he  said last week:  ,  "The Canadian labor movement may not be perfect ���  just as there is ho perfect government ��� but it is essentially  a clean and honest movement  and \ye are certainly proud of  our record in B.C."  .. ���&    -#    *  The- alarming thing is not  that the minister thinks these  things but l^e. alarming thing  is that his "perception of the  labor-management situation is  so bad that he :"feels he should  verbalize theni on the floor of  the housed His perception of  the world around him is so bad  that he is a political liability  to any cabinet.  Labor-management relations  in this province are reasonably  good. The trade union movement is as mature and sensible and honest as any in the  world. It's true that from.time  to time employers do not want  to pay wages asked but that is  not unusual. The trade union  merely applies the rules of the  market place. If the price is  not right, there is no sale.  *    *    *  The right not to work, for a  certain employer if you do not  want to is a precious freedom,  and the fact that it is exercised  from time to time is no reason  to condemn the trade union  movement that is one of the  cornerstones of modern democracy. Democracy depends on  eflEectively organized groups*  in the community, from all  parts of the community.  Each group owes it to itself  to have sound policy and sound  leadership. Only in this way  can we prevent the growth of  a monolithic state. It is interesting to note that after the  last war the allies helped the  unions get back on their feet  in Germany and Japan.  Trade union stoppages are  only a fraction of those man-  hours lost by unemployment,  industrial injury;, or the common cold.  Considering the economic  felump we are going through,  labor - management relations  are surprisingly good and I  have complete confidence in  the trade  union movement to  Tight control?-  Four of B.C.'s secondary  schools should be given a free  hand in planning their curriculum for an experimental period of four years, the University of British Columbia's extension department has proposed in a brief to the Royal  Commission on Education.  Under the extension department's proposals the schools  would be released from the  prescribed currilulum and province-wide tests and examinations for the four year period.  "It seems apparent," the  brief states, "that many teachers feel as though they were  tightly controlled from some  central point, and that they  have little choice in the determination of eui'riculum or  the variation of ieaeuing."  obtain sound contracts for their  members, as they must, and  prc-_eed in a manner which  v/ill satisfy the public as. to  their  integrity.  Statements by anti-labor  members of the government  only inflame and create insecurity.  *    *    *  The worker is going to protect his interests as best he  can through his own organizations which he controls and he  finances. He will not rely on  benevolent government and  neither should he do so.  These are political facts of  life. Those that try to ignore  them are not competent to sit  in the cabinet.  Our trade union leaders under Claude Jodoin, president  pf the C.L.C., are reasonable  and honest .men. Any. attempt  to associate: B.C. trade unionists' with gangsters or racketeers that have infested some  American trade unions does  B.C. a disservice. America is  not B.C. We think and act  differently here. Our trade  unionists are amongst the best  citizens we have.  LTD.

At present we have a two-  channel  system   of  education  from grade  9 onward (a), the  University  program,   and   (b)  the General program. The intent was that those pupils with  the  necessary  academic  ability and the desire to go on to  a   higher   school   of   learning  should take the university program;   the   rest should   get a  good   general   education    and  have  a   broad   general  knowledge when they leave school,  neither program was to be of  an inferior  quality;   each was  designed    for    students    with  ability and interest but preparing for different ways of life.  The system breaks down be-  on outlines specia  cause "every man's child" does  not have academic ability and  because along with our two  channels of education go two  other policies that are weakening the whole educational  structure. The first is "holding  power." We must "keep them  in school"; "keep them off the  employment market"; "keep  our percentage of high school  graduates above that of any  other country in the world and  any other province in Canada."  Is it not obvious what that policy does to the general pro-  gram?The many not capable of  mastering the university program which is culminated by  departmental examinations  must go into the general program which becomes "watered  down" to the ability! of the  people  in it.

Parents insist on  their children going into the  university program, whether  or not the pupils have that  kind of ability. Departmental  results are scaled to pass a certain percentage of writers.  Therefore the university program also becomes watered  down to the people in it.  Along with the 'holding"  policy goes the second weakening influence ��� "social promotion." It, too, is based on a  good sound ideal. Keeping a  child in grade one for 8 years  because he hasn't the intelligence to learn to count ia not  a sound plan. It is much better to keep that child with his  age group so that he learns to  get along with his fellow man,  learns any of the things he is  capable of learning, and sees  those things in relationship to  the society of which he is a  part.  But is it not equally obvious  what this policy does to the  academic programs of our present curriculum? A pupil who  cannot master the elementary  skills is no fit subject for a  good, sound, general program  at the high school level. Yet  becau-je he has been moved  along with the "C-" or better  rating on report cards, indicating average achievement in  relation' to his ability, he is in  the high school, possibly on  the university program in the  hope that he can continue to  get pass marks right up to a  degree in law or medicine.  Teachers must present their  lessons to the average or median in each class. The able  students are bored to tears;  the very weak are either sunk  in despair, or are so far out of  their depths that they do not  even realize that they' should  be learning scjmething from  what is being said, and they,  too, are bored to tears. The  more clever pupils soon learn  that not much effort is required to get a "pass", and that  they will come to be "set  apart" or considered "eggheads" if they get too high a  mark. Respect for solid learning all too often disappears  and the general. tone of the  classroom sinks.  To correct those weaknesses  we recommend:  The addition of a third channel in the secondary school to  give us:  ��������� .-a. The- University program  for those pupils with ability  who intend to go on to a higher school of learning, .  b. The General program  which offers a sound background in the liberal arts along  with some spedialized training of a vocational nature; e.e\,  commercial, -woodwork, mechanics, sewing, agriculture,  sheetmetal,  c. And the Special - Work  program for those pupils who  lack the academic aptitude to  do the work of the other channels but who can benefit from  some kind of training and from  the social associations with  their age group. The committee feels that the special work  program should be terminated  at tlie end of grade 10.  Certainly a pupil's wishes  and the plans of parents should  be given special consideration  in promotion to any channel,  and- whenever the pupil has  any possible chance for success  on a preferred program, he  should be given the opportunity to try it. But teachers should  insist upon a reasonable standard of achievement in 'each  of the first two channels, not  a standard relative to any pupil's innate ability, but a standard based upon the chances  for success in the  type of fu-  ���SS0 oil furnaces  We will install & finance your heating  system for as little as  10% Down  Sl/2% Unpaid balance  Years to pay  EXAMPLE OF FINANCE PLAN   ~"  Principal   $700.00  Down Payments    ;      J0.OO  60 Monthly Payment           12.02  See or Phone  DUKES & BRADSHAW Ltd.

This committee has been  criticized severely for suggesting definite percentage marks  as the division point for definite credit values. "A pupil with  50 marks, one credit? Yes. A  pupil with 65 marks, two credits? Yes. But, how can you say  that John, who got 57 marks,  must take a whole credit less  than Joe, who got only one  question . out of a hundred  more?" Our feeling is that we  do that anyway. For 49% a  pupil gets no credits. For 50%  he gets five credits. Our only  difference is that if John happens to fall within the percent  of pupils we intend to fail this  year, he loses out no matter  what his percentage mark is;  but if he is right at the bottom  of the group allowed to pass  instead of at the top of the  group to be failed, he gets the  five credits.  We make the same fine distinction, too, in many skills  and occupational positions. In  commerce courses, unless you  can type 40 words per minute,  you cannot get the 5 credits for  Commerce 20; unless you can  take shorthand at 60 words  per minute, you cannot have 5  credits for Commerce 31. At  39 words per minute in typing  or at 59 words per minute in  shorthand, you fail. Most employers, especially for large  firms, administer tests of their  own, based on the standards of  work which they require, and  prospective employees must  pass the test to be offered the  position. Tnen why should we  be so "fuzzy" in our promotional policy  in schools.  We admit that one teacher  might set a test on which no  pupil would rate below 80%  while a second teacher setting  a test on the same material  might make the examination so  difficult that no pupil could  attain more than 30%. However, we are not recommending  that the tests be set by individual . classroom teachers. The  university could surely set a  series of standard entrance examinations indicative of the  factual knowledge, language  ability, comprehension and  skill development required of  beginning university students.  It is our feeling that consider  able time and effort should be  spent on the setting up of standardized tests based upon the  requirements of the next grade  to be taken or upon the requirements of the field of work for  which the graduate is preparing. The number of credits received should give a clear indication of how well prepared  the pupil is for his next step.  The weighting of credits  will also ass'st in overcoming  the current attitude that any  pupil trying to attain high  standing is trying to shew off  or be an "egghead." No slower  pupil is going to condemn hard  work and high achievement on  the part of a better student if  that better student is receiving more credits for his effort and an opportunity for advancement that he could not  expect with a bare "pass mark"  In  the matter of promotional policy, we recommend:  1. That a series of standardized achievement and compre  hension  tests,   teacher   administered and marked, be used a&  a basis for  promotion.

If a pupii  has the ability but is not using it, he should fail and repeat the course. On the other  hand, if a pupil has not ability  and fails to pass the standardized tests, teachers have some  thing definite to show his parents as the reason for putting  him into the third channel.  2. That increasing letter  grades of achievement carry  increasing weight of credit  rating toward graduation: an  "A" pass, 85% to 100% ��� 5  credits; a "B" 76% to 84% ���  4 credits; a "C plus" 67% to  75% ��� 3 credits; a "C", 58%  to 66 % ��� 2 credits; and a "C  minus" 50% to 57% ��� 1 credit. Students on the university  program should be required t��  have at least 75 credits and  therefore must achieve at a  high level or put in extra time  to achieve, in addition to requiring a certain number of  courses.

Coast News, March 5, 1959.  Canadian Forest Products  Port Mellon pulp mill is now  a competitive unit as the result  of past re-organizations and if  isrorld conditions remain reasonably normal there should  &e continuous advancement in  the industry, J.G. Prentice,  ���president of Canadian Forest  Products said at the Tuesday  eight meeting last week of the  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis  Club.  The event was a dinner meeting at Dannys Dining room, attended by guests from Sechelt  and elsewhere.  Mr. Prentice was introduced  b? Jules Mainil, president of  the club. Starting with the observation that he and Port Mellon came into being the same  year, 1907, Mr. Prentice told  of some of his experiences in  Uurope, during and after  World War Two. Reaching the  Pacific Northwest he looked  about for something to do and  iaard that the International  Harvester company which had  a. tract of timbered land was  willing to dispose of it as the  company had no further use  ���for the timber in its products.  As. the result of various negotiations and deals he found  Mmself interested in an organization which eventually became Canadian Forest Products with a mill at Port Mellon involved.  Mr. Prentice in reviewing  Port Mellon's history said he  -found it fascinating and explained the Port Mellon mill  is now the oldest pulp site in  British Columbia on which  pulp is now being made. He  went back to the days of Capt.  Mellon and journeyed down  through the years in the hisi-  tory of the mill, its various  owners and what happened in  some cases.  He explained that when the  present company took over  changes in techniques and markets had occurred along with  a drastic drop in the price of  pulp. This resulted in a reorganization of company hold-  Sags. Now, he said, the com-  ��j:ay feels Port Mellon is a  ^-tnpetitive unit and if things  remain normal "we should  &ave continuous advancement."  Mr. Prentice was most interesting when he began talking  about himself and his career  starting in Czechoslovakia. He  -Had. some knowledge of French  German, English, Egyptian and  ���gnitfid. States people and language... He was, he said, able  to converse in French, Ger-  ���jnan. and English besides his  *__-tive tongue.  As the result of his travels  ih the United States and South  America he said he had a fair  idea of what to expect when he  arrived in Canada. The transition from a Czechoslovakian  to a Canadian businessman had  i4s problems and many of them  Sad. to do with variations in  -Meanings of speech.  On the lighteir side,, Mr.  Prentice said he liked a good  game of soccer and revealed  he had taken a considerable  interest in the sport. He plays  a "bit of chess" and has been  a. member of Canadian and In-  Usernational chess organizations  .Saving taken part in international games. He was of the  opinion international chess  tourney's keep channels of international communication  <spen and thinks some good can  Edgar Cluse  Funerai services were held  at the Legion Hall, Sechelt, on  Sunday, March 1, for Comrade  Edgar Cluse who passed away  iuddenly on Feb. 25 at his  .-tome in West Sechelt.  He came to Sechelt in 1943,  la.ving served in three wars  and! also with the South African  Constabulary. During his years  in Sechelt, he was, always active in Legion affairs and respected and loved by every-  -one who knew him.  He leaves his brother-in-law  Mr. J.

"Canadian Forest Products  will do what it can to make its  history brighter than when it  was first started," Mr. Prentice  said as his closing remark.  He was thanked by Ed Johnson on behalf of member Ki-  wanians who said he found  the talk by Mr. Prentice interesting as well as inspiring.

By PAT WELSH  Halfmoon Bay's All Time#Fa-  vorites Talent club first public  appearance was described as a  distinct success when the Surtees hall stage curtains closed on  a camjpfire setting before a full  house. The master of ceremonies  Tommy Burrows kept a long  and varied program moving  along in great style.  (Tiny Jaunita Charleton recited  the welcoming poem Pixie and  looked like one herself in her  pretty yellow frock and dark  hair. The Helmer sisters Jane,  Fern and Shirly sang Just Married, their sweet voices blending beautifully. Carson Grave's  piano solos made delightful  listening as did her recitation  What is a Boy? She possesses a  delightful singing voice, which  was heard to advantage in her  duets with Lorraine  Moffet.  Marilyn Cochrane sang the  Spiuer Song with actions in an  appealing manner. John Surtees  proved a versatile performer,  'his accordion and violin solos  ���brought deserved encores, as dia  his singing of the Rose of Tralee.  'The duet, The Wayward Wind,  sung by Jane Helmer and Lorraine Moffet was well done.  Michael Stillwell brought the  ihouse down with his impersona-  ton of the Big Bopper singing  Chantilly Lace, as encores he  gave Billy Bayou, and She'll be  Coming Round the Mountain.  The Letter a recitation by  Michael Foley brought many a  laugh. Little Judy Nygard's  piano solos were excellent as  was Tove Hansen's accordion  solos, these two small girls having  a   flair  for  rythm.  Beverly  Ness   sang   My Happiness and  in a realistic manner.  Community singing followed,  the accompanist being Mrs. Peggy Doyle. Refreshments were  served and a cake was Dutch  auctioned by Mrs. Billy Graves,  Lloyd Cameron being the winner. Dancing lasted until midnight.  As the youngsters did everything themselves, borrowing  sheets and bedspreads for curtains, lamps for foot lights and  her recitation of Don't Worry  About Junior, whilst doing the  family ironing, with a couple of  youngsters underfoot was appreciated by mothers.  Bare foot with torn overalls  and shirt tails out. carrving a  fishing pole over his shoulder  Kenny Moffet's recitation  Going  Fishin, was realistic. The Children's Marching Song by all the  cast was most enjoyable with the  littlest ones being almost carried  away with enthusism. Young  Paddy Doyle's piano solo, On  the Levee, was well played and  his singing of I See the Moon,  accompanied! on the piano by  his mother revealed a clear soprano voice.  Two tots, Elaine Moffet and  Fern Helmer sang the Fishy Song  waving imaginary fins and tails  made the back drop, they were  to be congratulated on their  initiative and resourcefulness.  The M. C. Tommy Burrows,  tendered a vote of thanks to  Mrs. Stillwell, Mrs. Charleton  and Mrs. Burrows for helping  with refreshments in behalf of  the Talent Club.

There was a time back in  1950 when we gave to the  Kinsmen Apple Day, just giving, not knowing or caring  what they were going to do  with the money. It' was less  than a month later that my  husband came down with polio. It was then we found out  about their useful work.

But in earlier days he earned  his living as a prize-fighter, seaman, chef, motor-cycle racer, wine-  taster and counter-spy. Son of a Toronto mllionaire, he took his  present name from a grocery store sign after his father had disinherited him.  Phone Gibsons 189  R. R. 1, GIBSONS  LETTERS TO EDITOR  Squamish highway views  Editor: There h_is been a  great deal of .talk lately/ about  our transportation problems,  and a request for the government tp complete:,-the highway  from Port Mellon to Squamish.  While I am in favor of the  highway being completed, and  I think it would be a very  beautiful scenic drive, I elo  not "think it .would solve our  problem.  How long would it take tp  go to Vancouver via Squamish? It is*_;9 miles from. Squa-  rhish to North Vancouver by  rail. What about the mud slides  on the road from Squan-ish tb  Vancouver, which sometimes  talce hours to clear? Wliat  would itlcost to" go that way  by bus? It isn't everyone that  ' has-their  own   car.   A   great  many of 'us, have to depend on  ? a bus}?-, for trafiaportation.  . We  do ? not - know  for sure  -that the .road ,would; even pass  through Gibsons. We would be  ':'��� just as -badly -off in an ertier-  gehcy. What we need is a. m6re  direct route to -Vancouver* one  that would, only? take abtnit an  hour or so by car or bus. What  we need is a bridge.

Squamish - to Port  Mellon,, let'�� view- the situation as it exists at present.  ��� Here we find administrative  pressure being applied to the  CPR over its proposed ferry  .withdrawal? A sentence in a  Vancouver Sun editorial of?  Feb. 19 is well worth repeating: "Tnis is the government  whicfh last year decided to  compete with the CiPR on the  Victoria run, although it was  obvious there was not enough  room for them both. It has ordered two car-carrying ferries.  With landing facilities the investment may run up to $10,-  000,000. Government subsidies  are available to cover any losses."  Now that quote and its implications should most decidedly serve asi food for thought,  particularly to the submitters  of the aforemention.*! resolutions and petitions, provincial  administrators notwithstanding  Just what would $10,000,000  do in completion of the highway from Port Mellon to  Squamk'ih.. No subsidies will be  needed for losses when one  views' the revenue probabilitie  such up-coast areas would even  tually return to the provincial  treasury.  There is no question of  doubt that the accomplishment  of such highway is a dire must  in the foreseeable future as  each continuing year emphasizes the fact that thin area of  the mainland has reached the  stage of continuing growth  worthy of accero by entire  ���"���"id +*r'*insportation.

Head table guests included  Robert Davies, resident manager, and E.C. Sherman, plant  superintendent, both of Canadian Forest Products Ltd.,  and Harold G. Bourne, B.C.  Telephone Company's general  traffic manager. B.F. Abram.  district commercial manager,  North Shore, was chairman.  The new automatic operation  costing more than $68,000, was  officially "cut into service" at  8 a.m. Feb. 25 and took less  than one minute to complete.  However, Port Mellon subscribers were able to place local  calls two days prior. This gave  company technicians an opportunity to conduct last-minute  testing of the electronic equipment.  Speaking briefly to the  luncheon gathering, Mr. Davies  welcomed the new automatic  system to the Sunshine Coast  community and said "that we  can appreciate the amount of  work involved."  Mr. Abram said the Port  Mellon system was the "first  phase" of a plan which would  eventually permit dialing anywhere on the Sechelt Peninsula.  Tlie next step will   be  to  Police Court  In Magistrate Johnston's  court, Allan Brown, Whalley,  was fined $15 for failing to  observe a stop sign.  William Phillips, Gibsons,  paid $15 for operating a car  with an illegal muffler.  Chris Julian, Sechelt, was  sentenced to 30 days' imprisonment for being in possession  of liquor on the Indian reserve  and ten days concurrent for being drunk. Accused had previous convictions.  Seymour Sam Johnson, Sechelt, will be out of circulation for 14 days and his drivers  license was suspended for one  year for impaired driving. '  Charles Reid, Madeira Park  and Roy White, Sechelt, were  each fined $25 for speeding.  convert Gibsons to automatic  service which will take place  in the fall of 1960, he said. Eventually, because of the two-  letter-five-figure numbers, such  as Port Mellon's "TUrner"  prefix, subscribers will be  able to dial telephone calls  anywhere on the Peninsula,  he added.  The TUrner prefix was chosen from a standardized master  list drawn up for Canada and  the U.S. and brings Port Mellon into line with an intricate,  international dialing plan. Under this plan, a operator will  be able to dial a distant number direct without the services  cf another operator at the called point.  The eventual plans call for  subscribers to dial most distant numbers without the aid  of an operator at either point.  Other guests who represented the community, were Merl  Nelson, president of the community association, Malcolm  McMillan, president of Local  297, Roy Kehoe, of Hillside:  Roy Findlay, townsite manager and Frank West, Ernie  Preiss, Don Macklam and Sig  Peterson, of Canadian Forest  Products Ltd.  Various telephone company  officials were also present.
