Brush fires  Brush fires have been prevalent during the lastt week  and while three of them required attention from authorities there were other�� reported  which were taken care of without calling out firemen.  Two fires occured in the region of Gibsons Rod and Gun  Club and a third in the Roberts Creek area on the lower  road near Wards. RCMP and  the Forest Ranger department  Sitress greater care 'should be  taken towards keeping fires  under close guard when used  for clearing purposes.  On Fri., April 25 both units  of the Sechelt Volunteer Fire  .Department quickly suppressed  a bush fire in West Sechelt  close to the highway. The fire,  about an acre in extent was  the result of land clearing activities.  Travel bureau representatives from Vancouver and Victoria; along with other tourist  minded people visited the Sunshine Coast last weekend on  invitation of Black Ball Ferries. A special bus conveyed  the party all the way to Powell River and back.  The party was met at Langdale by W.I. McAfee and Walter Nygren, representing the  motel operators and the Board  of Trade of Gibsons. A conducted tcVur of the Gibsons  area followed and the party  then moved on to Sechelt and  Powell River where it was met  by Bruce Smith for a tour of  that area.  Powell River's Board of  Trade was host at a dinner  where representatives of the  Sunshine Coast had a chance  to speak on tourism. On the  return trip Sunday the party  called at Garden Bay and Madeira Park where a short  cruise was arranged by Len  Larson.  After a survey of the Pender Harbour and Halfmoon  Bay areas the party headed  back to the ferry making various short calls on the way to  acquaint thefnselves with the  numerous areas along the  coast.  eeps growing  Library board officials in  Gibsons are pleased with the  showing so far in their fund  raising efforts for an extension  to the library. This: fund-raising has been conducted only  among users of the library' and  to date $168 has been collected  from one-third of the users.  Officials are hoping the  other two-thirds will be equally as generous in their donations wuiich can be handed in  to the library or to any official they, happen to know.

Skindivers meet  There will be a? meeting of  persons nterested in skin-diving, Friday at 8 p.m. in the  Gibsons Legion hall. Purpose  of the meeting is to organize  a training program, -tor use  this summer.

New schools will be built at Hopkins Landing, a two room  elementary school, and at Halfmoon Bay, a one room elementary school, and a two room Sechelt Junior High School. Here  is a breakdown of total cost and how it will be spent.

The addition to the Elphinstone High .School provides  t"-*-** complete class rooms,  which will be used for all subjects, but will be partcularly  f uitable for music and art, and  it is expected each room will  be used to capacity each day.  These classrooms will accommodate classes presently being  conducted temporarily in service areas.  The Sechelt Jr. High School  (Grades VII and VIII), three  complete rooms, will be an expansible plan, which will permit future rooms when pop/  lation . increase . warrants. It  should be noted that no students are being withdrawn  from Elphinstone to populate  these classrooms.  The one room school at Halfmoon Bay and the two room  school at Hopkins Landing will  also be built under an expansible plan.  The $4,500 not eligible for  provincial grant is for the purchase of property between Elphinstone High School and the  Irwin Motel. With the completion of two rooms on the Elphinstone school, the school  building will extend to the limit of the school property, and it  is felt by the board that it is  wise to prepare for future  needs by purchasing this property.  It is the hope of the board  and the department of education that the erection of more  schools will assist in reducing  transportation costs in this  district. With the present rate  of population increase more  schools are needed, and as  building costs increase each-  year, it is felt that now is the  time to begin -a program of  school building.  To measure the dollar effect  on the taxpayer, it is estimated  that a home ownerj with an  assessment of $3,000 will have  an increase in taxes from $1.15  to $1.50 per year, and as the  total assessment in the district  increases, it iis possible this  figure might be lowered.  The entire building program  has met with the approval of  the department of education,  and rigid inspections are made  regularly to insure that the  school buildings will be  kept  at the,.v highest standard of  workmanship and , material.  Mr. J. Lovatt Davies has been  engaged to complete the architectural work on Elphinstone  High r.^hool, but for the other I  buildings, official plans have  been obtained from the department of education. These projects are supervised by the departmental architect.      ��� -��^_  Although the board hopes  to have some of the classroom,  space available for September,  1959, it must be understood  that there is a statutory waiting period of 30 days following  a successful referendum before  tenders can be called for construction.  Public meetings for the information of ratepayers will be  held in each attendance area  prior to Sat., May 9.  The meetings will be held  at 8 o'clock on the evenings of  the following dates at places  mentioned:  Mon., May 4, Hopkins Community Hall.  Tues. May 5, Halfmoon Bay  School.  Wed., May 6 Madeira Park  School.  Thur*3., May 7, Sechelt Elementary School.  Fri., May 8, Gibsons School  Hall.  These meetings have been  arranged by the School board-  Fish derby  There will be another Pender  Harbour P.T.A. Fish Derby in  the summer, and committee  members will be Mr. Freeman,  Mrs. IT. Duncan and Mrs. Edwardson. There were 19 persons  at the April 16 meeting.  Mrs. W. Cameron moved that  a letter be written to Mr. A.  Child's of Sechelt School District Association expressing extreme disappointment regarding  cancellation of this year's Peninsula Track Meet and question  if there is any chance of reconsidering  this decision.  Mr. Tjorkom stated that High.  School seniors will participate in  a Sports program at Powell  River this year.

A letter has come to the Coast News signed by Premier  Bennett along with a copy of a lengthy story from the March  18 issue of the Wall" Street Journal. As is usual the Wall Street  Journal story, a roundup of the worsening fiscal crisis affecting  various states in the United States, is of high calibre and 'covers  the subject with thoroughness.  The editor was quite interested in reading about the troubles  of the five states, Michigan, Massachusetts, California, Pennsylvania and Washington. Their troubles are through over-spending  to the point where they are practically bankrupt.  Instead of quoting the Wall Street Journal article the  Coast News will quote some of the premier's letter, as follows:  "As the article points out their post-war situation has  closely paralleled our own in British Columbia: rapidly expanding populations, the demand for more government services ���  Mghways, schools, public buildings and the like and, of special  interest in the light of our own experience, rising interest rates  ��n direct debt.  * "The unfortunate result in the United States cases outlined appears to be a condition approaching bankruptcy, and I  think partisan considerations aside, the record of our own handling in British Columbia of this explosive post-war development  bears extremely favorable comparison.  "As you know, I believe most strongly in business-like  government, based on 'good housekeeping' in our public affairs.  It has been my government's constant effort to retain services at  a high level and indeed to increase them; to do all this on a pay-  as-you-go basis and, most important of all, to pay off the direct  ebt of the province and thereby avoid the crippling interest  rates which, I suggest, lie at the root of many of our neighbors'  troubles. One has only to note the staggering amount of -their  total long-term debt, 13,500,000,000 to gain some realization of  the immense expenditure for interest payments that they face  through all the years of the forseeable future.  "This is a situation which we in British Columbia will  so longer face by midsummer of this year and I am sure that a  filose perusal of the Wall Street Journal will show you why I  '.have been so personally determined to free our people from this  ���Suffocating burden."  That ends the premier's letter.  One can commend Premier Bennett for striving to reduce  the debt burden at provincial government level and to wipe out  ���anterest payments. Taxpayers will probably! laud the premier for  lais efforts. The taxpayers should also wonder why as the result  of provincial government action they will be forced to pay higher taxes at tax-collecting levels below that of the provincial government. *  One could not,:detect in the Wan. Street Journal-,article  ���mny mention of state financing through" commissions or agencies A  as is done in British Columbia. If there is no commission finaric-  ;___g in these states then tye comparison is not wholly fair.  The; Coast News view is. that Premier Bennett in striving  to get his non-debt halo centred over his head has jusit put the  toad on other governmental levels. The taxpayer will have to  pay no matter who collects. The natural conclusion to reach is  that with taxes rising at lower governmental levels they should  decrease at the provincial government level. Will they?  Popularity anyway  Among recent visitors in a long line of expressions: that  gain popularity for a time is the use of the word 'anyway' at the  ���ends of sentences. A forebear of this word play was the celebrated question, in which the final word is broken into two words  iand given a rising inflection: "What's "that on the road, a head,"  This used to double children over in laughter.  The current working of the thing is being used rhore by  adults, which may confirm that civilization is breaking down.  The approved method for using the word 'anyway' is to develop  a situation where one is, say, thanking a hostess on one's leaving  uafter dinner. To accomplish this, it is first necessary to get invited out and then to put in several hours, waiting to say, on  departure: "Well, thanks for the dinner, anyway." This is supposed to convulse everyone, although it also may keep one from  getting invited back.  Devotees contend that 'anyway' can be put on the end of  practically all statements and that by persisting in this, a howler  is likely to be produced on an average of every third time, as:  "You have a good-looking suit on, anyway." The difficulty is  (that proponents of this art form may not live long to practise it.  ���- The Printed Word.

Today,  the forests of the Southern  States yield approximately one  third of the U.S. lumber output, 58 per cent of its pulp-  wood and sizeable proportions  of other forest products.  How government and industry breathed new life into a  failing resource was described  to members of the Canadian  Forestry Association at their  annual luncheon meeting in  Vancouver by Frank Hey ward,  Jr., director of public relations.  Gaylord Mill Division, Crown  Zellerbach Corporation, Boga-  lusa, La.  Virgin tirnber in th?- couth-  ern United States was depleted  by the middle '20's, I-Ieyw?.rd  said. The cut-over lands were  scourged by recurrent fires. So  government thought the pine  was gone forever. A survey in  1920 revealed that on 90 mil-  lica. acres, the pinej forests  were a thing of the past.  Largely becausie of the prevalence of fires, land taxation  problems and low timber prices  there was scant interest in tree  growing.  First Work in organized fire  protection was on National for-  es'.s. These served as guides to  industrial operations which followed. By 1930 state forestry  organizations bad been established in every southern state  except Arkansas.  The awakening of public interest in forestry and tree  farms was brought about by  the paper industry, Mr. Hey-  ward said. Prior to the 1930's  this industry had consisted of  only?    ...attered     small    mills  of a single large modern mill.  Within the period 1934 to 1940  at least one new pulp and paper mill was constructed in  each of nine southern states.  Florida, alone, had four*. Almost overnight a market was  developed for pulpwocli in  practically every section where  southern pine grew.  ...Because small trees are usable for pulpwood, the public,  quickly recognized the possibilities of growin'g pine trees *  a�� a crop. On old fields originally in cultivation, planted  pines commonly attain pulp-  wood size in from 14 to 16  years. On undisturbed soil in  the forest, pulpwood may be  grown in 18 to 20 years and  sawlogs in 35 to 40 years.  Currently, tree farmers are  receiving $4 to $5 per cord  fefcumpage for . pulpwood and  $30 to $40 per thousand Doyle  Rule for sawlogs. The price of  bare forest land has skyrocketed from $5 to $30 or $40 per  acre in those few localities  where land is still on the market.  Forest fire protection now  extends to 85 per cent of the  total forested land and the  planting of tree seedlings has  grown into a sizeable business.  During the past planting season, 13A billion seedlings were  planted, the great majority by  private landowners.  "Under the impact of a region-wide tree farm program,  which is gaining momentum*  every year, there is no reason  to believe that the South's forests will ever be depleted  again," Mr. Heyward concluded.

The audience expressed pleasure with a* murmur of approval as. each model  paraded on stage.  Styles ranged from playtogs  to swim suits, California casuals and top model ensembles.  They were from Tasella Shop  in Sechelt and Thriftee Dress  Shop in Gibsons. Floral decorations were supplied by Anne's  Flower shop at Sechelt.  There were many fashions  by Aljean, Dan River, Kay  Windsor Originals, T e e n a  Paige and others.

Also shown were several  ���very attractive styles for maternity wear, one being a flowered all-over pattern, with a  petit-pont look, in hand washable cotton a slip-,on top in  shirt waist style with cap  sleeves.  All the fashions were worthy of mention, the casual play  clothes as well as the dressier  fashions. There were sun dresses, swimsuits,, slim jims and  slacks  for  all   tastes.  The models were Heather  Bracewell, Clara Nygren, Pearl  Feeney, Mrs. Stewart, Moira  Clements, Mary Rudolph, Ar-  lene Mason, Penny Feeney,  ���Elizabeth Kruse, Eileen Har-  rop, Yvonne Fladager, Myra  Marleau, V.erda Schneider,  May Reitze, Louise Nygren,  Sharon Solnik, Phyllis Tyson,  Denise Quarry and twins Susan and Anne Kruse. The bridal party included Carol Stuch-  berry, Judy Hague and Clair  Hague.  Let it not be said the Can-  Can dancers failed in their  effort to  instil into  the even  ing's performance some of the  old world spirit of the 1890's  because as their famous dance  went on the odd member, completely pooped, wandered  about gasping for air then  caught up with the troupe as-it'  flashed into their orbit. The  massed effort was well co-ordinated at the beginning but  as age and the need for a  change of oil caught up with  some of the dancers there was  some faltering but they managed to muster their strength to  present a really high-stepping  finale.  Mrs. Oscar Johnson president, in opening the show, introduced Mrs. Peg Connor, a  former, model in Vancouver,  who ably described the fashions presented during the  show.  During the intermission vocal selections were presented  by Mrs. Lucille Swartz and  Mrs. Lottie Campbell :with Mrs..  Mae Freer on the piano. The  bridal party Was one of youthful beauty with Claire Hague  as flower . girl, Judy Hague as  bridesmaid and Carol Stuch-  berry as a dainty bride, wearing the wedding gown of Mrs.  Frank Latter, nee Jean Hague.  Tightening-up urged  in education system  Phone SECHELT 178  A general "tightening up"  in education . in B.C.; better  salaries for senior education  department officials and district superintendants; an " entirely new system of establishing teachers' salaries ��� these  and many more recommendations were made by the B.C.  School Trustees Association in  a brief to the Chant Royal  Commission jn Education.  Since trustees are concerned  at all stages with school finance, and since reference to  this subject was limited by the  terms of the commission inquiry, the trustees association  has asked for a royal commission devoted entirely to school  finance.  The brief attacks minute  budgetary control by the department of ... education and  seeks restoration of local school  board autonomy in the interests of economic and efficient  school operation. .-.._  Trustees ask for a vigorous  program to recruit teacher  trainees, coupled with a subsidy system for trainees that  would in effect pay them a  salary while at teacher college.  On teacher salaries trustees  propose a basic provincial scale  established by an independent  commission and taking into account various living costs in  different areas of B.C. For  dedicated, efficient teachers,  the trustees propose a system  of merit rating or bonus payment.  Trustees also want all teachers to be degree teachers and  would view salary scales on  that basis, with a sharp difference between degree holders  and  certificate  holders.  As far as students are concerned, BCSTA proposes higher standards, greater emphasis  on basic courses, a longer  school day and a longer school  year to improve student training and obtain optimum use of  costly school buildings.  The trustees would eliminate promotion of students by  recommendation beyond Grade  VII, and permit promotion by  departmental.  examinatioa  Squarenaders  offical name  Gibsons Area square dancers ' are now officially the  "Squarenaders." This name  was unanimously agreed upon  from the many ��� suggestions offered at last Saturday's dance  which had the best attendance  in the club's short history.  Mr. Blatchford started the  evening by betting the group  could not follow the calls for.  five minutes without an error.  Much to his astonishment, he  was proven wrong, which can  be credited to either his teaching or his diplomacy!  Refreshments were served  after the dancing, and a brief  business meeting followed. After selecting a name for the  club, a date was set for the  next gathering, Fri., May 1.  As the season will probably  come to a close at the end of  ,May, there is not much time  left for joining. Activity will  resume in the fall on a weekly  basis, but there is no time like  the present to turn out and  give it a try. Be a "Square"  this Friday night at Hopkins  Hall.  alone. Locally set exams would  be used only for in-term evaluation of students.  ���The brief also complains of  an "abysmal" lack of vocational and trade schools in the  province; asks for report cards  that will actually show parents  how their children are doing  as individuals instead of as  members of a grpup; and calls  for establishment of sound disciplinary practices.  Half  has cl  moon  Bay  as cleanup  The Halfmoon Bay Improvement Association meeting of  a few weeks ago has brought  about tangible results. Old  shacks, sheds and disused  buildings have been torn down  and ..burned, the land cleared  of debris*, blackberry bushes  that once resembled a jungle,  leaving cleared areas that re-"*  veal beautiful sea views hitherto obscured.  Heme owners have been  busy with paint and brushes,  summer awnings put up, gardens weeded and planted resulting in a most attractive  picture.  One particular corner which  ' for years looked forlorn has  really blossomed forth. A few  bachelors, nameless, took over  this corner, renovated the old  cottages inside and but, added  colorful roofs, painted the  doors and windowsills in gay  colors,, made rockeries, planted  gardens and now have one of  the most attractive corners in  the bay.

Always check medicine labels  The British Columbia Pharmaceutical Association has issued  a list of warnings in connection,  with the use and -care pf prescription medicine.  Emphasizing that professional  knowledge is the unseen ingredient in every prescription, the  Association, which represents  more than 1000 registered pharmacists in British Columbia, offers this advice:���  Always look at the  label and  read the directions carefully.  Never   increase   the   dose   or  take   more  frequently than  directed.  Never take medicines originally  prescribed for others.  Never take medicine in the  dark.  Always hold the label side up  when pouring from a bottle in  order to preserve the instructions.  Keep all medicine out of reach  of children.  Keep all poisons and prepara  tions for external use apart from  other  medicines.  The association stresses that  a prescription medicine is chosen  by the doctor after careful diagnosis to determine his patient's  needs.. Much of the benefit to  ibe derived from this medicine  depends on following the doctor's instructions to the letter.

Women's Institutes  are gratified to learn that they  have been awarded a certificate  of merit for their efforts and  undertakings during the recent  Centennial year.  The award states the certifi-  ���--te is given for significant contributions to the British Colum-  ���bia Centennial Celebrations Com-  me.noration.  Significant contributions is undoubtedly very descriptive of  the many and varied; projects  of the Institutes all over* th-  province.  These, undertaken individually  or co-operatively in the districts,  nave been amazing in number  and magnitude.  They have run from-renovation of old halls to the construction of new ones; from provision  ot a hospital bed to the furnishing of a ward; the furnishing  oi rest rooms andi senior citizen s rooms; from libraries enlarged and libraries established-  parks enlarged, equipped or cut  from virgin timber; view points  suitably marked and provided  with picnic facilities; a medical  dental room opened; and foundations and. fuinids for worthy  causes and students have been  set up.  The whole represents a staggering number.of dollars and a  staggering number of women  hours too. Institute members as  always have earned the right to  walk the land in modest pride.  'The Women's Institutes' own  project was the compilation and  publishing of the- cookbook* Adventures in Cooking. This book  met with instant approval and  success.  In less than five months it  entered the magic circles of  best sellers and well it might,  for in addition to favorite and  family recipes it contains a brief  historical sketch of the Institute  districts which comprise the  whole province.  It has illiUistrations and Century Sam cartoons; its covers are  washable and dogwood-decked.  It is being sold all across Canada.  Another heart-warmer for the  Institutes was the fact that they  were able to raise and to donate  to the Queen  Alexandra  Solar  ium neary $5,000 which was  used to furnish and: fully equip  an eight-bed ward in the new  S:larium building at Gordon  Head, near Victoria.  It is not so commonly known  these days that the Women's  Institutes of the day were responsible for the original setup  -cf the solarium in 1926, and for  tbe Crippled Children's hospital  in Vancouver.  The late Mrs. V. S. McLachlan,  superintendent of Women's Institutes, 1926-1946, was the person largely responsible for the  founding of both institutions  and at the opening of the new  solarium last October, special  reference was made to this fact  hv Dr. Cyril Wace^ FRCS, the  first medical superintendent in  1927, when he stated:  "I want  it clearly understood  that I did not found the solarium as has sometimes been said.  The Women's Institutes did that  and deserve all the  credit."  It   was   regrettable that  Mrs.  ificate  McLachlan died just a matter of  days before the opening ceremonies.  Dr. Wace, overly modest, is  still deeply interested in the  solarium.  On May 13 a postage stamp  will be issued in Canada to  commemorate the development  of the Women's Institutes, not  ���only   here   but in other   coun-  6    Coast News, April 30, 195��  triesi as well.

(By Bill Nioholls) Zantolas took on classy Bruce  The 'Peninsula Boxing Club Wilson   and   Proved   a worthy  climaxed a short  but  success-_ ��PP��nent *n a fast-moving, well  ful winter of boxing Saturday"  (or 31 years  John Russell, age 79, known  to all who knew him as "Jack''  died on Friday, April 17, in St.  Marys hospital at Garden Bay.  The funeral service took place  in Gibsons United church at 2  o'clock on "Wed., April 22, conducted by Rev. D. Donaldson,  with the Graham Funeral Homt;  in charge.  Mr. Russell tiook ill at his  room in Hillside on Wed., April  15, and Dr. Ingles ordered his  removal to St. Marys hospital  where he died.  Mr. Russell was born in Kingston, Ont., and as a young man  was employed on a railroad for.  many years. Working his way  west he lost contact with his  family and it is not known how*  many of his brothers and sisters  survive. He was  a batchelor.  For the pgst 31 years he has  been employed by the Hillside  Sand &  Gravel  Co., Ltd.  One of his greatest interests  in life was sports, and he had  the remarkable talent of being  able to remember dates and,  places of sports and world  events.  The little church was full and  Mr. Donaldson brought a message of comfort to those who  were closest to him. An array  of flowers sent their silent message of love and respect for an  old man from his friends and  fellow  employees.  The pall bearers were: Bruce  Campbell, Ken Austin, W? (Bill)  Anderson. Tom Bentham, Arnie  Lien, and Harold; Stewart. Buriai  was made in Sea View Cemetry.  night with a snappy little card  at Gibsons school hall before  a crowd of approximately 150.  The club will not be inactive  however, as arrangements will  be made for the rebuilding of  the ring along with the purchasing of further  equipment.  Steve Macklam and Bob  Crosby opened Saturday's  show with a lively bout. Both  boys appeared vastly improved  over their last fight.  Grant Monroe and Ricky  Brady, a couple of husky 10-  year-olds from Port Mellon,  stood toe to toe trading punches for the full three rounds  that brought the crowd to its  feet at the final bell.  A pair of seven year olds,  Kurt Day and Pat Keogh came  next with Keogh* using his  longer arms to advantage while  sturdy little Kurt was more  dangerous in close.  In the fourth  scrap,   Rocky  boxed exhibition.  The nose-bleed of Brian  Knowles caused referee Bob-  p by Wilson to stop the fifth bout  seconds before the final bell  after good looking Gil Lavigne  had peppered the game  Knowles with some stiff left  jabsi.  A couple of novices, "Smiling" Eddie Sherman and  "Jumpin'" Jimmy Rudolph  threw everything but the kit-'  chen sink at each other in a  bout that had the crowd howling.  The seventh tiff on the card  brought together Dennis Mulligan and fancy stepping Billy  Lymerv Lymer, making his  first local appearance, looked  real sharp with his footwork  and fast hands being his best  weapons.  Ray Puchalski and Paul  Watson, a pair of tiny five-year  olds, bombed each other with  Marciano-type    rights   for   six  mnutes but were still standing  after it was all over, ready for  more.  Welterweights Mugs Mulligan and Claude Lavigne, both  of Gibsons, staged a knockdown, drag-out affair that saw  both boys near exhasution at  the end.  Marcel Lavigne appeared a  little too polished for Port  Mellon's Paul Gallant in the  semi-windup despite a good try  by Paul making his ring debut.  The Wallace A.C. of Vancouver provided the main event, pairing Egon Brettner, the  B.C: amateur middle-weight  champion against clubmate  Frank Toka, a runner-up in  the recent Tacoma Golden  Gloves. The boys were accompanied toy club trainer Pat  Burns. The fight proved to be  an excellent climax to a fine  night of boxing.  It seems only fitting in this  space to mention the name of  Jack Russell, a familiar figure  in this area for so many years  who passed away two weeks  ago. Old Jack, whose first love  was sports,' always had that  extra buck for a ticket, or donation to some sports organization. You'll certainly be missed  Jack.  Oops! Sorry!

No agreement  was; reached on relocation of  the lines but in order to deal  further with the problems in  the area, the conference adopted the following resolution:  This conference, recognizing  the desirability of reaching an  early solution of problems of  mutual concern related to the  conservation and management  of salmon stocks in southeast  Alaska and northern British  Columbia, which became apparent during the second conference on co-ordination of  fisheries regulations, recommends to the governments of  the United States and Canada  that a committee be established as soon as possible to consider these problems and subsequently recommend appropriate action to ensure continued ^effective conservation of  these  stocks.  With regard to troli and  trawl fisheries, the conference  concluded that the regulations  had been essentially effective  and it agreed on improved procedures for .coVord'ir^ation of  regulations.  The conference took note of  the United States expression  of serious concern about the  migration of large quantities  of Fraser River sockeye  through Johnstone Strait in  1958; the possible effects of  similar future migrations on  the management programs of  the International Pacific Salmon Fisheries comniission; and  'the possible implications of  such future migrations in connection with the provisions of  the convention relating to di-  ivision of the catch, between  United States and Canadian  fishermen. ,  The meetings which were  (held in the Board Room of the  Custom House, were attended  'by officials from Washington,  D.C., Ottawa, members of the  '.State Legislatures, and ojffi-  cials of the Pacific Coast States  as well as commissioners of  the Pacific Marine Fisheries  Commission and advisors from  industry.  detail ��� regulations with respect  to the oceanic salmon and certain other fisheries in the Pacific as recommended and  ���agreed upon at the original  conference in Seattle in  1957.  The meetings opened with  delegates considering the results of the co-ordinated research program on coho sal-  imon undertaken by Canada  and the United States following the first conference at Seattle and designed to thr^w  light on the special problems  in the sea adjacent to the Bon-  illa-Point Tatoosh Island line  at the entrance to tl)e Strait  of Juan de Fuca. Also under  discussion were offshore sal-  !mon net fishing lines, lines  seaward of which salmon net  -fishing is prohibited; review  of current troll and trawl fishery regulations and procedures  adopted at the original conference for co-ordination of these  regulations for each. of these  fisheries; and the large runs  of sockeye in 1958 through  Johnston Strait to the Fraser  River. - ��� *  A special committee was set  up to consider the results of  the co-ordinated research program carried out by the Fisheries Research Board of Canada and the Washington State  Department of Fisheries. During the course of this investigation nearly 7,000 coho were  tagged in the Strait of Juan de  Fuca and in addition several  thousand fish were examined  in order to develop knowledge  on the composition, of ,the  Swiftsure stock of coho salmon  compared with that of coho  stocks becuring inside the  Bonilla-Tatoosh line; the maturity of coho salmon in the  study area; and the timing and  extent of eastward migration  of coho salmon in the Strait,  of Juan de Fuca. After considering the special committee's  report, the conference reached no agreement on relocation  of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line.
