Volume 11,/Number 45, November 19, 1959.  A Complete Line  of Men's Clothing  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons;  B.C.  on winter  driving  Six hot tips for cold weather  driving were offered motorists by the head of the Motor  Vehicle Branch, Superintendent George Lindsay.  Based on scientific research  by the National Safety Council's committee on winter driving hazards, under actual driving conditions and during  tests conduceed by professional drivers and engineers, the  cardinal rules for safe winter  driving are listed as follows:  1. You are the key to your  own safety. Driving conditions  definitely are less favorable in  winter. It's up to you to winter",  ize your car, Winter-wise your  driving techniques and determine to do your best to avoid  accidents.  2. Rely on good tires and  tire chains. Have good tires  You may- prefer snow tires for  winter but ydu still should car  ry reinforced tire chains for  the more severe conditions  which can and will develop  from time to time. Even with  the help of snow tires, or the  much greater help of reinforced tire chains, you should reduce speed on snow ana* ice-  3. Keep windshield and windows clear. Be sure your wiper blades are in good condition  and that wiper arms have adequate pressure to sweep snow  and sleet off rather than slide  ever it. See that heater and defroster are workng smoothly.  Clear snow and ice from the  windshield and all windows of  your car before venturing on  to the highway. Ventilate, to  keep your windows from fogging.  4. Get the "feel" "of tlie  road. In order to avoid unintentional sliding or spinning  of your wheels, try the brakes  or gently press the accelerator  while driving slowly and as  traffic and highway conditions  permit. Then adjust speed to a  comfortable safe rate governed  byi the existing road and weather conditions.  5. Follow at a safe distance.  Keep a good margin between  your car and the vehicle ahead.  It takes chainless cars from  three to 12 times more distance  to stop on snow and ice than it  does on dry. pavement.  6. Pump your brake��. A  pumping action permits you to  maintain better steering control on ice or slippery snow.  A fast application and release  of the brakes ��� one or two  times per second ��� Will give  you short intervals of maximum braking effort separated  by short intervals of controlled  steering while wheels are rolling.  MOTHER.   DIES  Mrs. Edith A. Greig of Edmonton, Alberta, mother of  Mrs. Margaret McKee of Sechelt died Nov. 5 in Royal Alexandra hospital in Edmonton.  The funeral was held Nov. 7  from the Howard and McBride  Funeral Home.  She leaves her husband, Andrew Greig, another daughter  Mrs. Anne Hull of Edmonton  and a son Robert of Toronto.  com  A water supply for the Sunshine Coast came up for discussion at Gibsons Board of  Trade meeting Monday night  in, Peninsula Hotel.  Upshot of the discussion was  the naming of William Wright  as chairman of a committee to  explore possibilities of getting  an* area-wide committee in operation as soon as possible. The  idea is to get the best possible  men on the job.  The first Squamish storm  brought    information    to  the  d  SPECIAL CLASSES throughout B.C. for retarded children are  maintained with B.C. government help by the Association for  Retarded Children of B.C.

The group will show a selection of dances ranging from  the small children's "Doll's  Washing Day" to the comparatively intricate foik dances of  the more senior groups.  The children will be costumed and are looking, forward to  depicting the steps and en-  chainements which they are  learning.  There will also be a presentation of historical mime, show  ing movements and gestures  used as they were in different  times and as influenced by the  costumes of   other days.  This display will be followed by*1- refreshments and films  on ballet. During.the evening  a drawing will take place for  a beautiful ballerina doll with  her wardrobe of grown-up clothes. The doll has been shown  recently in the window ' of  Lang's Drug Store at Gibsons.  A silver collection will be taken. -  president of the local Legion  branch presented the other  three.  Combined choirs of the Anglican and United churches took  part in the ceremony of Remembrance. Ministers taking  part were Rev. David Donaldson, honorary chaplain of the  provincial command; Rev.  Denis Harris, branch chaplain  sud -Revv? Ei* ������K*^p^*VR'eJ^ilr.;'  Harris delivered the address.  Rev. Mr. Donaldson gave the  Bible reading and Rev. Mr.  Kemp the prayer. Last Post  was sounded. The choirs sang  the anthem "What are these  that are arrayed in white  robes."  Scouts, Cubs, Girl Guides  and Brownies took part in the  service.  At Seaview Cemetery before  the service in the hall a party-  of Legion members and members of the auxiliary under Mr.  Mason laid a wreath at the  cemetery cenotaph.  anon due  to retire  During the course of his address at the dedication service  in connection with the opening  of the new Legion Social Hall  at'Madeira Park, Canon Alan  Greene disclosed that his retirement from the ��� service of  the Columbia Coast Mission  was due at the end o fthis year  ?For the past 48 years, Mr.  Greene has been a familiar  and beloved figure along the  west coast. His retirement will  leave a gap in the lives of the  many out-of-the-way coastal  communities which will be a  difficult one to fill. In a later  issue, the Coast News expects  to: publish a ful1 profile on the  life and work of the Rev.  Greene.  The following from the Nov.  16 issue of the Province news-  fa|>er mentions Canon Greene:  Latest addition to the fleet  of mission vessels, operated on  th^  B.C.

Those desiring  to join are urged to attend this  meeting to start off the season  along with the former members of the club.  Good work!  Gibsons contributions to. St.  Mary's hospital- drive for funds  are steadily increasing and the  appointment of canvassers will  add to the amount already collected.  Mrs. William Duncan and  Mrs. Tom Morrison have volunteered to solicit funds and  have reported success so far  in their efforts.  couver.  Appropriately she was named the Alan Greene, after  Canon Alan Greene, D.D., superintendent of the mission, who  has plied the coast for 48 years  bringing spiritual and medical  care to hundreds of remote settlements from Pender Harbour  north to Queen Charlotte  Sound.  The new vessel brings the  mission fleet up to four, as she  joins tiie Columbia, John Antle  and Rendezvous under the St.  George's Cross houseflag.  The Alan Greene will be  based at Kingcome Inlet and  will be used for work with the  Kwakiutl Indians. Rev. Eric  Powell will be her skipper.  Sponsor at the launching  was Mrs. Ernest Christmas,  who with her husband, spent  13 years as lay missionary  with the Indians at Kingcome  Inlet.  The new vessel is 35 feet  long, powered by a Perkins  diesel which will give her a  speed of nine knots. Total cost  is about $18,000.  52nd ANNIVERSARY  Mr. and Mrs. J. Ernest Marshall sr., celebrated their 52nd  wedding anniversary quietly.  Members of the family helped  with the celebration. Long distance phone calls came from  members of the family at Tampa, Florida; San Francisco,  California and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  Spanish dancers Susana yjose make big hit  Exotic fiery elegance, words  used in the Susana y Jose program to describe these outstanding dancers of old. Spain,  are the most fitting the writer  can think of after having seen  the company at Friday night's  concert in Elphinstone High  school auditorium.    -  Brought to Gibsons by Overture Concerts society with the  hope they would be acceptable  to the membership, was a gamble which paid off handsomely.  From their first statuesque appearance as the curtains parted to the final tap of their feet  and swish of colorful costumes,  Susana y( Jose won their audience completely.  It was an evening with  splashes of color; also rhythm  that changed as sharply and  brilliantly as flashes of. light  from a diamond. Susana y Jose  have been described according  to   program   notes   as  a   fireworks of fantasy and tempera- ;���  ment. This is no exaggeration.  Those with a keen  ear for  rhythm must have been tickled.  by the smooth yet rapid chang  es   of mood expressed by the'  phenominal tapping of heel and ���  toe by this gifted pair.  From the opening pavana to  the final fandango there was  no let-up in pace. Everything  about tlie performance expressed a high standard and despite  the recalcitrant curtain which  caused the artists a little concern at the opening, they won  the audience by the superb  manner in which they, without scenery, carried one to a  warmer clime, far, far away  with  colorful   costuming  and  brilliant dancing aided considerably with expert piano accompaniment, drums, Flamenco  singing and guitar playing. It  was a refreshing evening decidedly in contrast to the evergreen scenery around us.  As one not gifted in the art  of the intricate dance steps  either by practice or knowledge without practice, the writer must confine himself to his  impressions.' His acquaintance  with dances of old Spain are  confined mainly to the music  without footwork. With footwork added it leaves him floundering for the proper words to  use. They escape him so .he  asks you to believe in the spon  taneous applause of the enthralled audience. What better  commendation could be offered.  The playing of Armin Jans,  sen on the piano was a symphony in musical color and the  guitarist, Francisco Hernandez  was so intriguing one could  have listened to him a great  deal more. The vocal selections  by Manuel Cruz Garcia at first  seemed somewhat stentorian  but one got used to the unusual intonations and towards  the end of the concert they did  not appear to intrude as much  as they did earlier. Perhaps if  the vocalist appeared in peasant costume he could provide  a less severe approach to his  work.  Overture Concerts certainly  opened the season with a reallv  artistic effort and Susana y  Jose will be remembered for  some time to come as really  fine performers. ��� F.C.  board that fishermen were not  too pleased with the breakwater which was completed recently. Some fishermen were  reported to have spent many  hours during Saturday night  and Sunday morning according  to information supplied the  Coast News outside the board  meeting. They- tussled with  craft bobbing around in the  hope of keeping down damage.  One trawler broke loose and  ended up on the beach.  Federal authorities, the  board was told, have been informed of the situation and  that fishermen are not satisfied with the present set-up of  floats behind the new breakwater. From what fishermen  understand, they believe a public works department official  will eventually check over the  situation to see what can be  done to make it better.  A letter will be sent the federal .marine department thanking the department, for placing  a buoy on the reef by Soames  Point. The meeting was informed that a floodlight will be  placed adjacent to the winch  now on the dock at Gibsons.  The sanding of bad areas on  the road to Port Mellon during  bad weather was brought to  the attention of the board with  the desire that some action be  taken.  A letter from the highways  department in answer to a request for space for a sidewalk  from the high school to the  North Road explained that the  idea was favored by the department and that arrangements would be made to move  the present ditch inside the  sidewalk area. Remarks by  board members revealed that  the work was practically assured but they could not tell  when it would be started.  The "problem of safety lectures for school children was  discussed briefly and it was  revealed the R.C.M.P. was  planning some lectures. It was  announced that the Safety  Council in Vancouver was  ready to provide material for  use in safety programs.  The request that the board  support a move to have student  fares available by bus and ferry was turned over to the committee on transportation for a  check to see what could be  done,.  The industrial board operat.  ing within the provincial government inquired as to what  industrial opportunities were  available in this area. The in-  dusrial board will be informed of the potentialities of the  Sunshine Coast.  Thte problem . of using the  bus  stop   for  parking   during  Slippery roads  idents  cause acci  Eight or ten cars were involved in accidents during the  stormy period on the Sunshine  Coast and most of the collisions  were in the area fronr'Wilson  Creek towards Port Mellon.  RCMP have no reports of  anyone being injured in the  mishaps and have no record  of the number of cars that  skidded into ditches and found  their way out without help.  One I & S transport got into  difficulties when on the way  to Port Mellon with a load. It  was unable to navigate a hill  and slid back into a soft spot  on the side of the highway. It  took some effort to get it back  on the road again.  hours when not used by buses  in front of the Graham block  was discussed and it was left  to be explored.  Mrs. Walter Nygren reported,  on the St. Mary's Hospital  study group which has prepared a brief to be presented ta  the provincial government. She  said the group seeks a 50 bed  hospital to replace the present  St. Mary's hospital at. Garden.  Bay. She reported the greatest  need was to convince the population of the need for a modern hospital. The main area in  which this work would have  to be done is on the Gibsons  end, she said.  A committee of three was  named to nominate a slate of  officers for the next year. Another committee will study the  possibilty of raising the annual  membership fee.  Increased truck rates imposed by the provincial government drew pretests from members interested in trucking.  Their claim was that the rate  was exorbitant. The issue will  be taken before the Associated  Boards meeting in  December.  Chairman of the meeting  was Walt Nyjgren, president,  with Mrs. Wynn Stewart as  secretary. After the meeting  Bob Holden showed a winter  sports film from the B.C. Electric  film library.  Gunboat  Bay fi  ire  Fire which broke out in the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold  Stickland, of Gunboat Bay,  Pender Harbour, last Saturday  morning demonstrated once  again the speed, efficiency and  value 'to the 'community of the  recently; formed Garden Bay  Volunteer Fire Brigade.  The blaze was first noticed  by   Mrs.   Stickland,   at   about  7:30 a.m.  She roused her husband and telephoned Jack Cum  ming, next-door neighbor who  rushed to the assistance of Mr.  Stickland who was battling the  blaze   with fire  extinguishers.  Meantime,    Mrs.    Cumming  telephoned Cecil Reid who hurl  ried by boat to the scene, leaving Mrs. Reid to contact other  members of the Brigade. Valuable assistance in summoning  help was also rendered by the  Sechelt telephone operator  on  duty.  Due to prompt action on the  part of all concerned, the fir**  was confined to the west end  of the building and the basement rumpus room. Damage,  which is fairly extensive, is  believed to be covered by insurance.  As a mark of appreciation  for the assstance rendered by  the volunteer firemen, Mr. and  Mrs. Stickland have donates  $50 to the 'coming drive for  funds planned by the brigade.  In strict fairness to the Stick-  land's generosty, it should be  mentioned that they desired  the gift to be anonymous, bul  the brigade feels such generosity; should, be publicised.  BOXES  ARE  SCARCE  Those potato chip boxes  sought by pupils of Roberts  Creek school are apparently  scarce because none have been  turned in so far. They are required to make masks for the  Christmas concert at the school  Anyone having Nalleyi's boxes  which are the ones sought is  asked to get them to the school  somehow.  A GOOD HINT  Salvage grandma's jardiniere  from the attic for a puddle catcher. Place a sponge inside and  set it near the door on wet days.  Umbrellas will drain and dry  quaint umbrella stand.  Repair for  Gambier dock  W.H. Payne, M.P., Coast-  Capilano, has been advised by  the minister of public works  that the contract for wharf repairs at West Bay, Gambier Island, has been approved. The  contract is in favor of Fraser  River Pile Driving Company  Limited, New Westminster, in  the amount of $10,715.  School dress  for discussion  Dress of students at Elphinstone High School will be discussed at the school PTA meeting Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. Report  cards will also be discussed  by Mr. W.S. Potter. Parents  are urged to attend this meeting as the discussion concerns  them as well as students. 2    Coast News, Nov. 19, 1959.  life's Darkest Moment  A WEBSTER CLASSIC  An ABC Weekly  Published by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  every Thursday, at Gibsons, B.C.

Recognition overdue  The Parliamentary committee on mines, forests and waters  in its report to the House of Common�� last summer produced a  set of recommendations regarding the forests of Canada, one of  whic'h urged the federal forestry branch* scope be widened with  a deputy minister in charge.  This is reported in the recent, issue of Forest Facts, a reference paper on 1he woodlands, published by the Canadian Pulp  and Paper Association. In reading through this paper one comes  across the following sentence: The report points out that annual  forest fire losses aire equivalent to half the value of Canada's  yearly wheat crop.  A perusal of ihe Dominion Bureau of Statistics Nov. 6 weekly bulletin on the economic life of the nation followed. From it  was gleaned the fact that the January to September exports of  forest products such as newsprint, lumber and pulp totalled  slightly more than a billion dollars or if you prefer figures,  $1,000,000,000. In the same period exports of wheat totalled  $322,200,000.  Some people might like to add on to the wheat figures the  Canadian consumption. It would not alter the picture because  total consumption of wood products in Cai ada added to the wood  product exports would if anything increase the ratio in favor of  wood products* as against wheat.  All this is pointed out not to infer that wheat has an inferior position to wood products in the Canadian economy. It is  done to show the forest industry* is modest in its desire for a widened forestry department within the federal government under  a deputy minister.  The wheat farmer has a wheat board under direction of the  federal minister of agriculture who reports its activities to parliament. Outside government 'circles both the wheat grower and  the forestry people have their organizations which do their lobbying.  One can safely assume that the wheat farmer, when he gets  -hurt through failing price or disaster from the elements, becomes  quite vocal and is assisted by the weight of wheat pools and other  farmer organizations behind them. To say they make themselves  heard in governmental circles is an understatement. They not  only get the ear of the.government but the press generally, pro  or con, joins the fray.  There is nothing wrong with the farmer becoming vocal  whether he is organized or unorganized. That is his right. It  should also be tlie right of the forest industry to have a��more  direct voice.  The parliamentary) committee report comment explains the  Forestry bralich has not the status comparable to that of a department. This, it says, reflects a lack of appreciation of the importance of the forest industries to Canada in the past, now and  in the future. Other departments of government are- considered  essential to serve industries or aspects of our national economy  which are of much less economic c'onsequence.  QUOTABLE QUOTES  In my country we have more television sets than we have  bathtubs. ��� Ed Murrow.  *    *    *  The difficult relations between Canada and the United States  in fields of trade and investment should be relatively easily open  to improvement. They do not arise from vast differences ia standards of living, wage costs and the like, which are slow of change  and difficult to deal with. They arise largely from the fact that  cthe United States tariff tends to prevent Canada from developing manufacturing and processing industries based on her natural resources. ��� A.E.

School driving course  A   campaign   to   have   driver  training   courses   conducted   in  iligh schools across Canada has  been launched by the B.C. Automobile Association in concert  with 15 other constituent clubs  of the Canadian Automobile Association.  In a new booklet "Teach Them  to Live" which is being used in  the campaign, the Canadian  Automobile Association points  out that 86 percent of teenagers  drive cars as soon as they can  get licenses and that 31 percent  of accidents are caused by 18  percent cf drivers ��� those between the ages of 16 and 25.  The CAA booklet states:  "Driver training in schools is!  not on trial; its worth has been  proven.

Nearly 12,000 high schools there  have, driver training in their curricula. Well-kept records show  that school-trained drivers are  involved in only half as many  accidents as untrained drivers."  fe>  O  V  A super-race of grizzly bears  has been discovered in an Alberta hideway, recently opened  up as ons of th country's hottest  oil-prospecting--  areas.  The huge beasts are believed  to tbe remnants of the plains  grizzlies which once moved with  the buffalo herds across the prairies and were thought to be extinct before the turn of the century.  An article in a recent issue of  Imperial Oil Review reports that  discovery of a "Valley of the  Giants" in the Swan Hills area  150 miles northwest of Edmonton  poses an intriguing zoological  riddle for naturalists throughout  North America.  The bears are of eye-popping  proportions. They measure up to  10 feet from nose tip to hind  paws, and weigh up to half a  ton. In the bear kingdom, only  the Alaska Kodiak tops that.  Fewer than 400 of the shy  monsters are believed to have  survived in an 8,000-square-mile  domain of woods, babbling  streams, and small mountains  which, until recently was one of  the continent's few primeval  spots. Today oil has been found  in Swan Hills, and more than  100 drilling and seismic crews  are operating in the region.  The Swan Hills grizzlies ar^  not Rocky Mountain or coastal  grizzlies, nor do they appear related to any other type of bear  now living on the continent.  However, their skulls are strikingly similar to those of the  plains grizzly exhibited in the  National Museum in Ottawa.  Midhael Hendry and other  early explorers reported seeing  thousands of "big bears" roaming the prairies, and prior to  1850 Fort Walsh in southern  Saskatchewan was shipping as  many as 600 bearskins a year.  These grizzlies were described  as longer than any other, with  needle-sharp claws and colors  ranging from chocolate to silver  brown. The Swan Hills grizzlies  match this description.  The Irr.perial Oil magazine tells  how Albert Frederick Oeming,  zoology graduate and Edmonton  wrestling promoter, heard rumors of a giant race of grizzlies  in the Swan Hills area, spent  years questioning Indians and  whites before he saw one, and  finally developed a theory to explain them.  "There is historical proof that  herds cf buffalo roamed as far-  north as the Peace River to escape the advance of man," says  Oeming. "I think a handful of  the ' plains grizzlies came with  them and bred up in the Swan  Hills, which, until lately, was  one of the most inaccessible  areas   on the continent."  Today the (huge bears appear  to be moving north again, as  supply roads and clanking bulldozers enter their once-silent  kingdom. This has* pushed them  closer to the settlements along  Lesser Slave Lake, and Oeming  (has been concerned about their  survival.  The Review article tells how  Oeming fashioned a 10-foot-long  trap, by which he could first  knock out the grizzlies with  ether, then tag them and transport them deeper into the wilderness. He alack went from oil  camp to oil camp, telling the  story of the bears and asking  crewa not to shoot them. The  Canadian Petroleum Association  circularized the industry, asking  co-operation. Garbage dumps, always a magnet for bears;, were  moved farther from cookhouses,  and some camps banned rifles.  Then the Alberta government  backed up the conservation, effort by placing Swan Hills off-  limits to all bear-hunters.  'VTlhere's a good chance now  that the plains grizzly won't vanish from the earth," Oeming  says.  Unless a man is doing all he  can he is doing less than he  should.

NATURE'S scrapbook  By BILL MYRING  JAPAN CALLING:  The idea of Forest Conservation Week originated with the  B.C. Branch of the Canadian  Forestry Association in 1950.  Since then it has been expanded  into a nationwide observance and  has also been adopted by several  of the neighboring United States.  Further evidence of the international appeal of this highly effective promotion was received  recently in the form of an enquiry from Japan to the Vancouver office of tiie Association asking for suggestions as to how  such a Forest Conservation Week  program could be organized in  the land of the rising sun.  ABOUT SPIDERS:  In case you have wondered why  spiders are not caught in their  own webs, here is the answer:  Spiders' legs are coated with a  natural oil'which prevents them  from sticking to the strands they  spin. If spiders are washed with  chloroform the oil is removed  and thev cannot walk on their  own webs.  A  KNOTTY PROBLEM:  What are knots and why are  some tight and other loose?

Knots are the cross-sections of the encased portions of  the limbs. Live limbs continue  to grow along with the truntc  and form a natural graft, result  ing in tight knots. Loose knot's  are formed when the wood grows  around dead limbs.  STOMACH SHRINKERS?  It is said that the black bear  takes   medicinal   plants   before  hibernation. If so, why? All  bears eat gluttonously during  the early and late Fall in order  to accumulate a heavy layer of  fat before the advent of winter.  Just prior to hibernation, however, heavy feeding ceases and  a period of fasting ensures, presumably to empty the stomach  of its contents. A day or two before denning bears are often  seen consuming hazel twigs and  popular bark, both of which are  more or less astringent. Many  naturalists believe the unconscious purpose of this habit is to  shrink an empty stomach in preparation for Jihe long Winter  sleQp.  $��ENCY   AVAILABLE  To responsible small business  presently operating in Gibsons  seeking to augment income.

George Henry Murray, who  headed the government of Nova  Scotia from 1896 until 1923. As  a Liberal appointee on the province's Legislative Council, since  abolished, Murray served as  minister without portfolio in the  government of W. S. Fielding  from 1891 until 1896. In the latter year he was elected to the  provincial legislature and succeeded Fielding as premier.  His personal popularity and  integrity and the wisdom of his  policies kept his administration  continuously in office for 27  years. Murray resigned in 1923  from both the premiership and  the legislature! He died in Montreal in January 1929.

Should the milkman's son  have the same opportunity to  enjoy th-2 benefits of college as  the ton of ihe Stockbroker?  "Yes", is the opinion of many  Canadi^i:,-���, though not too many  have said it aloud; But now it  is being said more strongly, by  more people. The latest voice is  a big one ��� The Canadian Home  and School and Parent-Teacher  Federation, which represents  307,000 parents across the nation. The 1959 annual meeting of  the Federation resolved to promote public acceptance of the  idea of free university tuition  for all academically qualified  children  of Canadian  residents.  The federation urges that university education should be free  ��� but not that it should be universal. Admission to college must  be controlled. The question.  "Who shouFd go to college, and  for what purpose?" is asked in  an article by Margaret Cowan,  in the October issue of "Canadian Home and School" magazine. Here are some of the points  made:  The greatest untapped resource  in Canada is rural youth. We  take great pride in the vastness*  of our resource and our high  standard of- living, yet we are  failing miserably in the development of the richest resource we  have, our youth. We are spending millions educating our children through ' the secondary  school level, but most of those  who have the desire and ability  to go to -university are prevented  by lack of finances. We bring  them up so far but for some reason seem to be unwilling to help  them to the top.

Never grind the starter. Running it for more than 30 seconds  at a tiime can damage or weaken  the battery. If the engine doesn't  turn over on the first try, stop  and wait a minute to give the  battery a chance to recharge itself.  Don't pump the gas pedal ���  you'll only flood the engine. Instead, press the accelerator to  the floor once and then hold it  midway down as you engage the  starter.  Turn off all electrical accessories before using the starter.  They place an extra drain on the  battery.  Depress the clutch: if the car  has a manual shift.  If ihe car won't start after repeated attempts, the chances are  that the battery is too weak or  the engine is not tuned properly.  ies, Cubs and Girl Guides.

One  in 13 of our college-age youth  is going to university at present.,  and many who are going are nor  fitted for it. Many students are  sent to college by their parents  merely for social or matrimonial  reasons. Universities shouldl be  so crowded by the able and willing that there should be no  room for the unable or the unwilling. There should be more  young people in college with  brains, and fewer with bucks!  The universities want the  young people with talent and  those with ambition; those with  analytical power and those with  staying power; those who will  think and those who will study.  Of course, the identification of  these "wanted" types isi not always easy. Students cannot be  selected - by a mechanical rating  of intelligence and in disregard  of other factors of character and  achievement. Brilliance in intellect is not always accompanied  by character, moral fibre or stability. Many average student-*  who work hard get more out of  college, and more out of later  life, than gifted confreres.  Many men have achieved greatness without a university education;" many more will follow. But  today, as we watch the awesome  advance of science, with its potential both for mass betterment  and mass destruction of mankind, we realize that, pex-haps  more than ever before, the future of our country depends on .  knowledge: it depends primarily  on    the    men and women with  A  complete Optical Service  G.

THE OLD HOME TOWN  CaghXr*! U % Palmt Offle*  A new kind of huntsman is  abroad in B.C.'s coastal forests.  His quarry is a tree and his trophy a twig. His ultimate reward,  according to the recently established Plus Tree Board, will be  ���an elite race of super trees, literally the "pick of the crop" in  our commercial species.  Briefed by the board, a small  army of field men from industry  and the B.C. Forest Service  whose work takes them into tha  "bush are now keeping their eyes  peeled for particularly choice  specimens of Douglas fir. These  trees, the board plans, will become the progenitors of high  .grade commercial stands yielding  more and better wood as a permanent contribution to our future forest economy.  "Aim of the Plus Tree Board,"  says Chairman W. 6. Burch, B.C.  Forest Products Ltd., "is to in-  eease the volume and quality of  trees to be cut from future  jrtands. These trees must grow  quickly and produce logs of clear  ���wood in order to compete with  limber from other parts of the  world.  "T h e tremendous improvements made in agricultural and  horticultural crops have been  achieved largely by selection of  the best parent stock and breeding from it. We hope to do the  :same thing with our forest  trees," he said.  Since most forest trees do not  produce seed during the first 15  or 20 years, the time element has  always presented difficulties in  efforts to improve the breed. To  overcome this obstacle the board  will employ techniques developed by the fruit growers. Twigs  can be removed from selected  fruit trees and grafted onto root  stocks. All the inherent qualities  are conserved in these twigs  which soOn bear fruit. The same  method can be employed with  forest trees and the grafted twigs  ���will produce cones and viable  seed in a much shorter time than  if left to -nature unaided.  Seed   orchards   made   up   of  sturdy  seedlings   to  which   cuttings   from   "plus  trees"   would  be grafted, can be laid out like  apple  orchards yielding a large  volume  of   superior seed  stock  to he harvested in the form of  ���cones.     This    blue ribbon seed  "would then be used in the nur-  ���series to grow seedlings for reforestation.  Three major companies, B.C.  Forest Products, Ltd., the Tahsis  Co., Ltd., Crown Zellerback Canada, Ltd., and the B.C. Forest  Service have already confirmed  their intention of making an immediate start on their own seed  orchards. Others, will be following suit very shortly. All tho  participating companies are holders of Tree Farm Licenses.  "Plus trees" must have a higher volume of wood than their immediate neighbors; must have a*  straight stem with a minimum  of taper and should show a nar-  arow, wedge-shaped crown with a  dominant siingle leader. /)ther  characteristics sought include  freedom from rot, disease, frost  erack or insect attack. There  .should also be evidence that the  tree will produce cones and pollen. If these conditions are met,  ���wood quality will be rated by  certain tests and assessed for  .atraightness of grain, fibre  length and angle, and other features.  To help the field men select  candidate trees, a booklet is now  foeing prepared by the Board for  ��arly distribution.

Municipalities.  Basis for the study are a  dozen resolutions presented to  the UBCM annual convention  in Kelowna last month by the  ���municipalities" of Burnaby,  Langley Township, Delta, Surrey,. West Vancouver and Richmond.  Langley wants conflict between Land Registry Act and  the Municipal Act removed to  give municipalities, full control over local planning and  engineering which affect the  physical design of subdivisions  and development in general.  Delta seeks authority for  municipal councils to require  subdividers or developers to  provide "services or utilities to  a level which is desirable by  present-day standards."  Under existing legislation,  such services may be installed  by the municipalities, which  Delta claims creates an additional tax burden on citizens  at large for the benefit of a  few. Yet these services are essential to the .health and welfare of the community at large  Even more sepcific and far-  reaching are Bumaby's proposals, which, if incorporated  in the Muncipal Act, would  give municipalities power to  regulate the use of land with  respect to location, design and  construction of "buildings; provision for ensuring public  safety; sanitary facilities and  other public works.  Burnaby seeks enabling legislation to set up technical plan  ning boards in municipalities,  institution of development per-  . iriits to ma,ke all construction  conditional on meeting amenity* requirements, and appointment of a zoning bylaw appeal  board which could relax certain restrictions if rigid enforcement, of the bylaw created  hardship on the developer.  Surrey suggests legislation  which may require new developers to provide road allowances up to 80 feet wide where  major roads have been desig^^  nated by an official community plan.  The special committee hopes  to produce a report which will  satisfy the 1960 convention  and the provincial government  of the need for legislation adjustments that will safeguard  both the economic welfare of  the municipalities and the  rights of the individual property owners. ���  Roberts Creek  By Mrs. M.

What are your chances of  survival from the blast and  heat generated by an exploding hydrogen bomb? And if ���  you do survive that phase,  what are the dangers from radioactive fallout?  The immediate prospects of  a nuclear war may* appear re- .  mote; but, because modern ?  weapons make such an attack  possible on very short notice,'  e very one should have some  knowledge of the protective  measures to be taken in the  event of such a disaster.  The office of the Provincial  Civil Defence Co-ordinator  has prepared and sent out to  householders of B.C. outside  the Greater Vancouver and  Greater Victoria target areas,  detailed instructions regarding  necessary precautions in the  event of a nuclear attack. This  information has been printed  on the back of a highway map  of the province ��� a useful ���  folder to have in your home or  in the glove compartment of  your car at all times.  Brig. G.A. McCarter, provincial co-ordinator of the civil  defence, urges every house- ���  holder to study the Civil Defence instructions carefully and ;  to keep them in a handy place.  You will want to refer to the  map periodically, and the dis- '*���*  sster instructions will be available if it should ever be "required .  The provincial co-ordinator  points out, that there are two  separate threats to human life  in a hydrogen bomb explosion;  ��� the blast and heat generated by the explosion; and the  radioactive failout that will result from it.  For those caught within a  three mile radius of the bomb  bursting point there is little  hope for survival.  If yjou are from three to six  miles from ground zero of the  blast you may be protected  from the immediate heat and  blast effects of the explosion  by an adequate shelter.  Damage from a 5 megaton  H-bomb will be evident up to  1.2 miles from the explosion  but the immediate threat to  human life will be reduced as  the distance from the blast increases.  The danger from radioactive  fallout extends over far greater distances. In an H-bomb explosion the heat pulverizes everything within three miles  and the highly radioactive dust  particles created are sucked up  in the familiar mushroom  cloud. This cloud will drift  with the wind, depositing this  radioactive fallout over a distance of up to 200 miles from  the explosion site and over an  area up to 40 or 50 miles wide.  More protection sought  Despite many demands on  consumers in 1958, Canadians  put a higher percentage of income after taxes into life insurance and annuity premiums  than in any year since 1947.  The 1958 figure was 3.7 percent, the same as in 1946 and  1947. In 1952 the ratio fell to  a low of 3.2 percent. Back in  1928, however, it was 4.4 percent.  "These figures, based on the  business of life insurance companies in Canada, are among  the many reported in the fifth  edition of "Canadian Life Insurance Facts" prepared by  The Canadian Life Insurance  Officers Association and now  off the press.  The average size of ordinary  life insurance policies purchased during 1958 was $6,250. ac-  the average size of ordinary  cording to the Fact Book, and  policy owned at the end of the  year was $3,590.  Altogeher, life insurance in  force with th'e -companies covered an estimated eight million  policjy|holders in Canada for  nearly $39 billion of protection  at the start of this year.  The payment of benefits continued at a record pace in 1958,  the Fact Book discloses, with  $463 million being pa5d to  Canadian families through  their life insurance and annuity  programs.   Of  this   total,  $164 million was paid in death  benefits and the rest ��� nearly  two-thirds of the total ��� went  to living policyholders in the  form of matured endowments,  annuities, disability payments,  policy dividends and cash values.  Tlie net rate of interest earned on the invested assets of  Canadian life insurance companies was 4.66 percent in  1958. The 1958 rate was the  highest since the general decline of interest returns in the  early thrities. In 1928 the rate  was 6,1 percent ��� typical of  the high rates earned through  the 1920's.  A "5-HOUSE" SPRUCE:  : A ep-ruce felled this year in  the Queen Charlotte Islands by  Northern Pulpwood Division of  Crown Zellerback, Canada, Ltd.,  contained enough lumber to  "build five average-sized houses.  Fourteen feet across at the butt,  this giant is believed to be the  largest handled in Canada for  many years in terms of lumber  content. It scaled 51,004 bd. ft.  and was bucked into six huge  logs! each 24 ft. 8 in. in length.  While this adds up to just under 150 feet, the top of the tree  had been blown off within the  past 50 years or so. The logging  manager estimates the big tree  was probably 250-275 ft. high  originally.  RIGHT  WRAP  Use corrugated cardboard or a stout carton.
