Mr. Jeffrey, district superintendent of schools, at the  Feb. 8 meeting of the School  Board, reported on meetings  held in "Elphinstone with Mr.  Potter and senior teachers regarding establishment o f  Grade XIII in the high school  in September. Further meetings with Mr. Potter, Mr. Buckley and these teachers are  scheduled for the near future.  Information will be supplied  tc both students and parents  as soon as it is available. To  date the fee of $50 per year  has been established. Parents  will be pleased to know that  students wil be entitled to participate in the Text Book Rental plan for a fee of $5.  The transportation chairman  requested a special meeting of  the board, together with the  bus operators, to discuss some  important details of the contracts. The chairman of the  personnel committee reported  on the meeting with the Sechelt School District Employees' Association executive and  further meeting�� will be held  when the executive have presented the agreement of schedule   to  their   association.  Mrs. Ritchie and Mrs. McKee were requested to attend  the next practice session of the  High School band at Elphinstone and report to the board.  Thank you letters were received from the pupils who attended the Future Teachers'  Conference. These pupils have  been invited to -attend the next  board meeting and give a short  report on the value of such a  conference   to   students.  Tenders for the building of  the Trail Bay School in Sechelt, the Halfmoon Bay school  ���'and the addition to the Ephin-  stone Junior - Senior High  School hafe been prepared.  Upon Receipt' of there "'tenders  information will be sent to  the department of education  in Victoria for approval and  acceptance. It will still be  necessary to receive permission to proceed with the building program, although money  for these schools is available  from   the Bank   of  Montreal  A Board of Trade letter asking council's consideration of  greater control over the sale  of fireworks within the village  v/as discussed Tuesday night  along with a letter on the same  subject to the Board of Trade  and the Farmers' Institute  from Cpl. Ruggies of the  RCMP.  Cpl. Ruggies suggested a bylaw could prohibit their sale.  Port Mellon, he wrote, banned  them entirely and put on a  display of fireworks under  adult supervision.  Council decided to obtain  information covering control  of fireworks from other authorities.  Accounts    totalling   $235.42  of which $199.58 was for fire  protection,   $19.45   for   roads,  and   $16.39   for   .general   purposes, were passed.-  A request that a trailer secured to a cement base and  used as a permanent fixture  be considered in the same way  as a house built on a lot was  placed before council for an  opinion. After considerable discussion council decided by majority vote to give assent in  this case.. It was pointed out  Vancouver did not regard anything with wheels removed as  a trailer.  Further discussion on the  fire alarm system to be ins-tailed when dial phones replaced  the present system resulted in  council accepting a plan of six  direct control phones for fire  calls only. The cost would be  about $500 a year for maintenance of the system within the  village. The outside area will  take care of its own fire alarm  system  and finances.  ^ A report on the Recreation  committee revealed the committee had $131 in the bank  and a meeting is being sought  with officials of the committee to get its present status  clarified.  " Council moved to obtain  costs for construction of a sidewalk from the vicinity of the  Bal Block on Beach Ave. on  the upper side of Marine Drive  Students to attend conference  Janice Preiss and Nicholas  Gilbert of Elphinstone High  School are among more than  270 delegates to the annual  High School Conference at the  University of British Columbia Feb. 26 and 27.  A program of sample lectures, discussions, campus  tours and a basketball game  will be opened with a ceremony of welcome at 9:30 a.m.  in Brock Lounge on Friday,  Feb. 26 and culminate in a banquet and dance on the second  night.  The conference, which was  organized 13 years ago for  the "purpose of acquainting  high school student�� with all  aspects of university life, is  sponsored by the Alma. Mater  Society, UBC administration,  B. C. Teachers Federation and  B. C. Parent-Teachers Federation.

A. M MacKenzie:  "To serious and responsible  citizens nothing, unless it be  the basic necessities of life ���  food, clothing and shelter ���  can be of more concern than  the manner in which our children are trained and educated;  and, whether we realize it or  not, it i<j upon the quality of  our schools and colleges and  universities that our progress  and welfare as a nation depend.  "Within the limits of . our  time and resources we at the  university try to extend our  educational services to every  corner of the province, for we  are well aware that our respon-  siblities are not confined to  the Greater Vancouver area  and Lower Mainland.  Dr. J.F.K. English, deputy  minister of education and supervisor of education: "In  these days when higher education is considered of ever increasing  importance   and  the  DIAL PHONES DELAYED  B.

The date now proposed for  switchover from the existing  manual system is Nov. 19, 1960  Bert F. Abram, district commercial manager, said rescheduling has been necessary  owing to later completion  dates for both buildings, and  delay   in equipment  delivery.  need for all our good students  to avail themselves of it is being emphasized, this unique  way of introducing the university to high school students is  certainly praiseworthy."  ; Dean Neville V. Scarfe, UBC  College of Education: "The  University-High School conference provides an opportunity for selected students to  gain first-hand knowledge of  what it feels like to work and  play in a university environment.  ��� "It is a revelation for many  students to see how interesting university classes and laboratories can be, how exciting the myriad intellectual, social and athletic activities may  prove, how stimulating the  contact with such a variety of  students will be, and how easy  . it is to meet some of the most  distinguished professors in  Canada."  Committees  ���inted  Boxing night for Seche  The Sechelt Kinsmen and  the Peninsula Boxing club will  join forces Saturday, Feb. 22  in an all out effort to aid the  Sechelt March of Dimes campaign.  A large crowd is expected  at the Legion Hall for this  wTorthy cause and also enjoy  a fine night of boxing.  The local boys have improved to such an extent that Vancouver boxers no longer need  be imported to headline these  shows.  A prime example of this will  be seen in the main event  when Dennis Mulligan and  Billy Lymer will square off.  Both boys have improved tremendously.  Del Dunham and David  Davies, a pair of Port Mellon  novices, will do battle in the  opener. Some of the other boys  appearing on the card will be  Bob Crosby, Bruce Cramer,  Gene Pearl, Ronnie and Sonny  Evans and Paddy Beaudoin.  Ring equipment donated by  the old Gibsons Boys Club and  currently in the hands of the  Gibsons Legion, will be used  to reconstruct the present ring  which is in need of repair.  Trainer Frank Zantolas ha��  announced the purchasing of  $76 worth of boxing equipment to replace some of the  nid surplus. The Port Mellon  fire department has agreed to  donate $50 to the club.  Good to see Ted Hume back  lending a hand again at workouts. He . recently returned  from a holiday in Mexico. Ron  Wilson has also been helping  out at recent work-outs.  jppoj  " The general meeting of St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary last  Thursday, under chairmanship  of the president, Mrs. Elsa  Warden appointed the following   committee  heads:  Public Relations: Mrs. Mary  Woodburn; fancy work, Mrs.  F.

The Auxiliary will welcome  new membens, from established residents or newcomers to  the Harbour. Applications will  be received by any member  of the organization, or through  the secretary, Mrs. G. Phillips.  The above two boxing stalwarts are Pat Keogh on the  right and Rickey Swartz on  the left. They are eight and  nine years old respectively and  will show their wares at Sechelt Feb. 26.  GARDEN BAY CHURCH  Services will be held at St.  Mary's church, Garden Bay,  at 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., Canon  Greene announces. There will  also be a service at 3 p.m. Sunday in Redroofs Community  Hall.  19 years of community service  Nineteen years of service to  the community will be celebrated at the annual meeting  of the Roberts Creek Credit  Union on Feb. 25 at the Wilson Creek Community Hall.  This credit union was incorporated under government  charter at a meeting in Roberts Creek Community Hall  on July 18, 1941, with 32 charter members. Though covering  the entire district from Halfmoon Bay to Hopkins Landing,  it was named the Roberts  Creek Credit Union as that  community occupied a central  position in the district and  much of the original initiative  came from there.  To those credit union mem  bers who have joined in more  recent years, a review of the  history of the movement here  might be of interest. During  the depression years of the  thirties interest in co-operatives began to germinate. It  was not until Mrs. H. R. Evans  of Roberts Creek attended a  course on co-operatives put on  by the U.B.C. Department of  Extension in January, 1939,  that any definite action was  taken. Study groups were  formed and with literature  from St. Francis Xavier University, information gradually  spread through the district.  Finally in 1941 it was decided  to go ahead with the formation  of a credit union.  During the early years,  when both. officers and members  were  feeling  their way  carefully, progress of the new  enterprise was slow but steady.  Much of the credit for this  progress must go to Mrs. Leah  Cotton, the first secretary-  treasurer, who combined business ability with credit union  enthusiasm to keep the young  organization moving forward.  By the end of the first decade  assets had reached a total of  $23,757.  Since then the rate of  growth has been greatly accelerated until in January, 1960,  the assets amounted to $108,-  864, including an office building in Sechelt. Since incorporation there have been 1,009  members and at present there  are 485 active members. Loans  granted, totalling $437,000  with a loss of only $175. There  are three School Savings Clubs  sponsored by the union at Roberts Creek, Davis Bay and Sechelt schools.  The office building in Sechelt was acquired in 1959. A  full time service to the shareholder�� is maintained here by  the present secretary-treasurer  Harry Lincoln, who has held  this position for the past seven  years, the time of fastest  growth. Past presidents have  been Wally Berry of Sechelt,  the first, then Charlie Haslam  of Roberts Creek, Bob Burns  of Gbsons, Ernie Parr-Pearson  of Sechet and at present Harry  Sawyer of Sechelt. Space does  not permit an enumeration of  members of credit and supervisory committees whose voluntary services have contributed so much to the success  of the credit union.  Panel on  fireworks  Should the sale of fireworks  for Hallowe'en be banned?  This will be discussed by a  panel on Monday, Feb. 22 at  8 o.m. in Elphinstone High  School when the PTA will  meet. The panel will include  Nick Gilbert, a student; Mrs.  Ball, Vince Bracewell and Ray  Rhodes. Parents are asked to  attend this discussion and hear  the pros and cons of the fireworks issue.  There will also be a sale of  heme cooking.  presented  . In a quiet ceremony the  Good Citizenship award by the  Board of Trade which honored  Robert Burns, former village  clerk, on the day of his death,  Jan. 21, was presented Mrs.  Anne Burns, his wife.  The scroll which was to have  been presented by C. P. Ballentine, former village councillor and long-time friend at the  Jan. 18 Board of Trade meeting reads as follows:  GOOD CITIZEN AWARD  We,  the  people of the District  of   Gibsons   confer   the  Good   Citizen  Award upon   a  man most richly deserving of  this  singular honor  ROBERT BURNS  For decades his name symbolized unselfish and devoted  service to our community. Beyond the call of duty he contributed to every worthwhile  project designed to make our  community a better place to  live in. He unstintingly gave  his time and energies to assist,  neighboring communties in  their problems and was called  upon, .from near and far, to  share his wealth" of knowledge  to the benefit of all. His shining example shall never dim  in our memories, as we posthumously award this distinctive Honor.  He was a man respected by  all.  He was a Good Citizen.  Gargrave urges  work on roads  Welcome Beach, Roberts  Creek and a cutoff from Langdale were discussed on the  floor of the Legislature, Thursday of last week. Tony Gargrave, M.L.A., urged mor^  road work on Welcome Beach  so that bus service could be  provided to the residents; and  the completion of black-topping on the Roberts Creek  road. The local member told  the Legislature a cutoff from  Langdale to Highway 101,  above the school, for ferry  traffic was needed on the  Peninsula.  Mr. Gargrave also encouraged the government to begin  surveying the north side of  Howe Sound with a view to  : extending the road from Port  Mellon through Woodfibre to  Squamish. This -would enable  a person to drive from Gibsons to Vancouver without using a ferry.  Mr. Gargrave told the members an integrated ferry system was needed on the lower  coast. He told the government  it was a mistake not to accept  the offer from Black Ball to  sell its ferry system to the department of highways.  "Perhaps the price was not  right," he said, "but there  shoud have been negotiations  with a view to purchasing the  system and combining it with  additional governmental services on the coast." Mr. Gargrave said that the area required better ferry service during peak periods with less  weekend congestion.  SECHELT POLIO CLINIC  There will be a polio clinic  Feb. 29 in Sechelt's Legion  Hall between the hours of 7  and 9 p.m. at which the third  immunization shot will be given to those requiring it. Arrangements have also been  made for those requiring their  first  immunization  shot.  Mrs. Mary Julius of SecheB-  Indian Band whose age traced,  through records is 109 died  Tuesday at Sechelt. The funeral service will be held Friday  morning in Our Lady o��  Lourdes church where requt-  um mass will be said by Father McQuade. Tlie body will  rest in her home all day Thursday when relatives will gather  She leaves two daughters,  Mrs. Matilda Craigan in Seattle and Mrs. Annie Johnson, a  widow in Sechelt. A son Paddy  74, died 15 years ago. There  are 10 grandchildren, 37 greatgrandchildren and 15 great-  great - grandchildren. Charlie  Craigan, a grandson, was the  band's first elective  chief.  Mrs. Julius was born in Pender Harbour area and took a  considerable part in the early  building of the band's life ha.  Sechelt. She took an active  part in the founding of the Indian Reserve school and the  rebuilding of the church destroyed by fire in 1907.  Her husband who , died in*.  1926 was the first government  certified chief of the Sechelt  bind. Mrs. Julius took part in  an Indian presentation of .9.  Passion Play around 1891  which was presented at Chilliwack and Kamloops. She took  the part of the Virgin Mary.  Mrs. Julius is the last of the  band of women who took a  considerable part in the organization of Indian life in Sechelt area. As a mark of honor  a special casket will be used  and burial will be made in the  Sechelt Reserve Cemetery.  Graham Funeral Home is in.  charge.  n  Two fires were reported by  the fire department, one ob.  Sunday, a chimney fire at  Mark Ward's home on Sechelt  Highway. Damage was not  serious.  A more serious fire occurred.  about 9:30 p.m. Monday night  in the Victor Eckstein duplex  on Dougal Road. Mrs. H. QL  Willis was awakened from a  nap by the noise of breaking  glass. She raised the alarm and  Victor E'ctostein next door  rushed in with a fire extinguisher to keep the blaze from,  spreading. In the meantime the  firemen who were at work in  the firehail received the alarm and were on the scene in  about two minutes.  Considerable smoke and water damage resulted and it is  estimated the loss will be ha.  the region of $2,500. Tlie fire  is believed to have started in  some  upholstered  furniture^  Guides to  attend church  To mark the Golden Jubilee  of the founding of the Girl  Guide movement there will be  a district church parade Sunday at Gibsons United Church.  Girl Guides and Brownies  numbering probably up to 50  will attend the 11 a.m. service-  under direction of Mrs. L. Labonte,   district   commissioner.  The girls will come from  Port Mellon, Roberts Creek  and Gibsons. This church parade is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations which  will  include  other   events.  The Jubilee was observed,  when a huge National Birthday cake was cut in Toronto  in January by Chief Commissioner Mrs. Rankine NesbiSt.  Smaller cakes were taken back  to their provinces by provincial commissioners for provincial birthday parties.  Special inter-provincial Jubilee camps will be held in  every province of Canada this  summer to mark the Golden  Jubilee. Each camp will be attended by two girls from each  province and two from Gregt  Britain, to foster inter-provincial and international understanding and friendship. 22   Coast News, Feb. 18, 1CS0.  r Site Thrill That Come.

You can build a sidewalk but you cannot make people use  1L Strange but true. Anyone watching the use of the sidewalk  constructed in Gibsons from Bal's Block to the United Church  .���corner would wonder whether anyone knew it was there.  Maybe it could be because pedestrians have become so ingrained into using the paved highway because of a lack of a  -sadewalk that it will take a new generation to pound.down the  ���-dirt which now makes a sidewalk.  There is nothing wrong with the dirt walk.-It is sandy,  therefore absorbs water quickly. Naturally it is not muddy and  51 is a better place to walk if one desires to avoid highway traffic. That is why it was built.  Gibsons and District Ratepayers' association urged the Villa;"-* council to construct the walk and after discussing it in  ���sen:...- "I. Vie order war given to build it.  Possibly a campaign should now be instituted to,acquaint  ���fhe popiuace with the fact there is a sidewalk extending from  Jack's Lane to the United Church corner. Maybe the idea of  -'���aGSbsons having a sidewalk is so unique that people do not real-  y$ze what it is for. Some more -stores along that strip of sidewalk would be a big help so let's get some built so the sidewalk  arill be put to general use.  eynes dropped  There is the possibility Mr. Keynes, the well-known econ-  ���-.-flanist about whom discussion on the efficacy of his financial  iMeas has arisen, has been deserted by British Columbia's Prem-  :3er Bennett. During his 1959 budget address Mr. Bennett had  AtHns to say:  ���".Since  1952  your   government  has diligently,  practically  snd. consistently applied to its public  financing those cyclical  budgetary theories that have been recommended and supported  by the world's most renowned classical economists, such as Dr.  .Keynes.  ".Simply expressed, cyclical budgeting requires a budget to  .���a-smserve the revenue gains of prosperous year�� so that they may  "be available for use in slack times to create jobs and increase  : ^purchasing power."  The careful reader of this year's budget speech will note  that Premier Bennett has taken last year's $24,000,000 surplus  :sm8y added it to this year's expenditure. Based upon what the  --writer can discover from public accounts,  that wipes out any  "Surplus. The premier also anticipated an additional revenue for  ASbe year totalling $19,000,000. No recession there.  One can also wonder about the gyrations performed in the  financial orbit by the government when it raises most people's  jporoperty assessment and then gives it back in the form of a  (���"handout. Usually a government is very happy to be able to throw  . -a reduction of taxes at the public in an election year. This prac-  --fiee of keeping taxes where they are and handing them back as  -a handout contains seeds of discontent. Financial gyrations some-  Jbxsw do have a habit of kicking back.  Letters to the editor  .jEffi'tar: It is a great pleasure  &&   welcome    improvements    to  ; ;yom* community ��� it is very sad  Jto see these improvements mis-  3treated by the public for whose  *3��easefit they were installed.  ?5fol3Qdy welcomed the L^undro-  Tceat more than I ��� up unEU that  ���<event the good' old elbow 'grease  -was applied to the innumerable  amount of diapers and baby  ���slothes that two babies manage  mto go through; so the coming of  "She Laundromat was indeed a  Messing.

How ever Mr. Gilbert got the Canadian Legion,  the Legion L.A., The Community Association, and a Resolution  mixed up in my letter I am at  a loss to understand. My reason  for replying to Mr. Rees letter  was, that I hoped our letters  would encourage others to write  and give their opinion on this  most important question of  "Peace   through ��� disarmament."  Exchange Pf ideas and discussions are educational. We can't  all think alike. Mr. Gilbert completely misunderstood my letter.  Jen Monrufet, Roberts Creek.  TRUSTEES TO MEET  The first conference of school  trustees representing the four  western provinces will be held at  Regina, Feb. 19 and 20. Participating will be the B.C., Alberta,  Saskatchewan and Manitoba  School Trustees  Associations.  (By A. J. C.)  It was on the fourth of the  month that a robin called on.me,  cr more correctly to ma since I  heard that wall remembered  chirrup before seeing th? bird.  If I had expressed the thought it  gave me I would have replied:  "Hello nuisance; gladi to see you  again."  Kerry Wood, who writes so  well or nature subjects-, calls the-  robin "America's favorite bird,"  from which I would guess that  Mr. K. Wood does not grow  strawberries and early green  peas!  My western robin visitor, burdened by ornithologists with the  scientific name Planestieus mi-  gratorius propinguus was a male  of his kind. I supose that most  people have noticed that it is  the cock birds that arrive first,  their partners holding back until later when the unfolding  leaves give cover for the nests  and make housekeeping in privacy possible.  The same is true also of tha  next species of bird to arrive  from the south ��� the Gambell  sparrow, called by some "white  crowned." The future papas fly  about in carefree bachelor clubs  between attacks on the gardener's young seedling.  ���T* ���I* *T*  When one sees a pair of cock  robins in a feather-pulling rough-  and- tumble it is quite safe to  infer that the hens have arrived.  That sounds bad but to do the  robins justice it should be said  that their battles are over territorial rights rather than for -the  favor of the ladies. A prospective bridegroom chooses a desirable building site in one of my  plum trees, handy to the strawberry patch and cherry trees,  where he stakes out a claim and  thereafter attacks every intruder  with great vigor. Members of the  species nest "early and often"���  twice in the season at least ���  and, sad to say, with a change  of partners at the later nesting.  "Happy's the wooing that's  speedily doing,  Merry and over with the bloom  of the clover."  On a Sunday morn a little oyer  a year ago an old hermit of the  woods was startled at the sudden  appearance of more, people passing through on the old logging  road than he had seen in 30  years. They were strong out in  batches, having just made .the  long climb upward from jsea  level.  *    *     *  Noting that they were aiming  binoculars at every bird that  sfeowed I survived the shock  without going down on "all  fours," but for the credit of the  district as the home of birds I  wished that they had come later  in spring. Of migrants only the  two species mentioned above had  arrived and the main migration  of summer birds was not yet due.  If, by chance, any member of  that group should read this he  mav_ also read my hops that they  will" come again and let us show  what we can do ��� in the merry  month of May,  for instance.  Robins show no little guile in  their nest-building. Noting the  beginning of one nest in a plum  tree, as stated, I kept watch and  saw the bird with a wad of dry  grass in his beak, but being  aware of my observation he flew  off in the opposite direction to-  that leading to the site ��� a plain  hint that it was none of my business Where he was building. And  the way he flitted casually from  tree to tree as though with nothing else to do was a piece; of  good acting.  *    *    *  That nest with three eggs in it  later on ��� witlh one more expected ��� was well hidden but  hot so high as to prevent a child  peering into it, in the absence  of the owners, by means of a  ladder held steady from below.  Whereupon it was revealed that  the annoyance of a little spoiled  fruit was well paid for by the  wonder and delight on the face  of a child. Such moments are  too few in life.  Mischievous he, may be from  our point of view but the Migrant  Thrush has his own place in the  vast, complex picture that we  call the ecology of a district ���  the relation of all living things  therein to one another and to  their environment. And however  old one grows the "first Robin'  is still welcome, for ���  "A summer bird art thou  That' ever in the haunch of  . winter sings  The lifting up of day."  ���hr^f'.  ������5*  m  This is the second and final  article by Mr. George Spence, retired member of the International Joint Commission which has  control of rivers which cross the  border in to the United States.  It appeared first in the Regina  Leadier-Post from which permission was obtained for its use in  the Coast News.  Doubtless, some of the principal factors which weighed wich  the United States government --  factors which caused that goveri-  ment to change its position ou  the    Columbia   River   question,  were that it became more and  more evident, with the development of the Canadian case, that  the United States stood to lose,  and to lose greatly in the* long  run, by maintaining an attitude  of surpreme indifference to Canadian interests.  The application to the commission to approve the Libby dam  sparked the whole controversy on  the Columbia River matter. The.  application was premature in the  sense that it was made before  Canada was able to conduct the  necessary engineering investigations to determine the power  potential of the Columbia River  system in Canada. Canada was  therefore at a great disadvantage  compared with the United States  which had completed, or nearly  completed, its over-all investigations of the Columbia basin in  the United States.  Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons for the change of  heart by the United States government was that the engineering investigations on the Canadian side disclosed the fact that,  from an engineering standpoint,  it was perfectly feasible to divert  in Canada, waters of the Koot-  enay River into the Columbia  and the peak flows of the Columbia River (not presently usable  in the United States) into the  Fraser,   an   all-Canadaian   river.  Such diversions, if made, would  greatly increase the available  power potential on the Canadian  side of the boundary while lessening the -potential on the United States side. What was more,  Canada was appropriating fun-is  for Investigations and other measures directed to that end.  One can only conclude that the  United States became conscious  of the strong position which Canada was in, and came around to  the view that its interests would  be best served by joint, or cooperative development of the Columbia River. No other mean 3  offered as cheap, or as quick, additions to their power output as  storage in Canada would afford.  Here, it should be explained that  the downsteam plants in the  United! States were designed and  built to get the benefit of upstream storage. The amount of  this -upstream storage in Canada,  expressed in acre feet (a foot of  water over an acre of land) is,  indeed, impressive.  The proposed Mica project, according to the H. G. Acres report to the federal department of  northern affairs and national resources, "will have a maximum  height above rock in the river  bed of approximately 700 feet and  a maximum crest length of 2,750  feet." It will back up the water  behind the diam, in the Columbia for a distance of approximately 195 miles. The reservoir will  have a storage capacity of 20,-  000,000 acre-feet more than half  of which will be "live" or usable  storage. The dam and powerhouse will be a rockfill structure  and "will be larger, in all respects, than any existing rock-  fill dam in the world." The total  cost of the dam and powerhouse  is estimated at $247,207,000 ���  truly, an enormous project.

The principal natural resources  that will be contributed by Canada, in the right of the province  of British Columbia, and which  make the Libby dam and reservoir possible in the first place,  are agricultural lands, timber  and mineral deposits, which will  be inundated, coupled with the  three potential power sites���Dorr  Plumbob and Wardner���-in tne  42-mile stretch, of the Kootenay  River above the international  boundary. This is the portion of  ths Kootenay which affords storage to downstream plants in the  United States.  This circumstance further justifies, if further jusiification :s  needed, recompense in power-  rather than in dollar and cent value, as stated previously. It might  bo more expedient, however, r.c-  compensate for property damage,  as before outlined, in cold cash  for the reason that, in the case  of agriculture, the money could  be used to develop irrigation using some of the stored water for  that purpose. Communication.**}  such as roads, bridges, railways  and the rest that will be destroyed by the flooding, could be relocated and the balance restored  in that way. All are matters for  which a formula has to be found.  It should be mentioned here,  too, that there are flood control  benefits from storage and regulation of the upper Columbia  River system to both Canada and.  the United States. These benefits are, however, a mere bagatelle in comparison with the  downstream power benefits.  These benefits have to be determined and apportioned between the two countries in any  plan of joint or co-operative development.  has no official confirmation on  the point ��� that the agreement  contains the stipulation that each  country retains its right to divert  waters in the Columbia River  system, within its own country  if at some future time such diversion should become expedient  in the circumstances.  Recent press reports also state*  that the governments will now  turn the whole matter over to*  their respective diplomatic  branches so that negotiations can  get under way on the terms of a  treaty between Canada and the  United States embodying the priii  ciples of the agreement on the  co-operative development of the  Columbia River, recommended  by the International Joint Commission.  The peoples of both countries  have .therefore, good reason to  rejoice that a matter which was  pregnant with the seeds of discord has been satisfactorily and  amicably settled, marking an  event which doubtless will be of  historic significance in the neighborly relations which have existed, over the years, between the  two countries.  This assignment was referred,  by the two governments to the  International Joint Commission  for final determination. Recent  press reports have indicated that  tho commission reached agree*-  ment on the principles involved  and further, that the commission  has just recently submitted its  recommendations to the two governments to the effect that downstream power benefits should be-  shared on a 50-50 basis, by the  two countries.  On this basis, after full development has ,,been achieved,  Canada's share of downstream  power benefits will be approximately 1,250,000 kilowatts annually with a net value of ro-  poximately $50,000,000 ��� bi?  money in any man's country.

However, it would be  wise to ignore this cynical approach to what is now a highly scientific process.  Mr.   Bonner,   the   attorney-  general, spent  about an hour  last week telling us what had  happened to the province in  the last ten years and what he  anticipated  would   happen to  the province in the next ten  years. It's true to say that the  government of British Columbia have only been using statistical information in any extensive way since the war. We  have  ten  years  of   statistical  research behind us and based  upon the sucessful forecasts of  the past   trained   people   can  now forecast  with   surprising  Parish Sechelt  fire chief  accuracy, the things that we  will be doing and the things  that we will be needing in the  next decade.  A forecast that interested  me as the member for Mackenzie, was the anticipated expansion in the demand for  pulp and paper within the next  five years. So convinced is the  government that there is going to be an increased world  demand for paper that they  have prepared brochures in  various languages inviting  world capital to invest in pulp  and paper production in British Columbia. This is one forecast that we certainly hope  will materialize.  Based on the information in  Mr. Bonner's speech we can  expect a population increase  from 1.5 million as of Jan. 1  this year to 2.2 mlilion by Jan.  growth is tremendously significant to all phases of B. C.'s  economy.  *    *    *  If you are interested in real  estate and can forecast in  which way these additional  700,000  people  are   going   to  At the annual general meeting    build their homes you should  of the Sechelt Volunteer Fire  Brigade all former officers were  re-elected by acclamation.

Gibsons  Beach Ave. 218G.  For parents only  By  Nancy  Cleaver  Copyrighted  "Can I help you, sir?" asked a  British Scout in uniform when  he saw a stranger groping his  way through a dense London fog.  William D. Boyce, a visitor from  the United States, was very glad  to accept this boy's help. The  Scout accompanied the stranger  to his destination, just to make  sure that he got there. When the  American thanked his young  guide, he also offered him a shilling. But the boy refused the  money saying, "I am a Boy Scout  and Scouts do not take tips for  their daily good turn."  Mr. Boyce was surprised and  impressed. He determined to  leam more about the Scouting  Movement. As this happened in  1909 he was able to make an appointment with Baden Powell,  the founder of Boy Scouts. When  the principales of Scouting were  carefully explained to the American visitor, he was convinced  that here was something which  he must transplant to his native  soil.  ��������     �����*���     "5s  The name of this British Scout  who did Mr. Boyce a good turn,  and thus introduced Scouting to  this continent, was never discovered. But in Gilwell Park, England, that great centre of Scouting, there is a beautiful bronze  sflatue of a buffalo. Beneath is  this inscription:  "\To the Unknown Scout, whose  faithfulness in the performance  of the Daily Good Turn brought  the Scout Movement to the United States of America."  The Cub promise which each  boy makes when he is admitted  to a Wolf Pack for eight to 11  year olds states:  "I promise to do my best to do  my duty to God and the Queen,  to keep the Law of the Wolf Cub  Pack; and to do a good turn to  somebody every day."  The Scout in his teens, and the  Senior Rover Scout pledge themselves "to help other people at  all times."

At the  weekly meetings an unsigned list  of good turns for each day wa*?  handed in to Akela, the Cub  Master. These papers were wrapped in tinfoil. Then they,were  added to an ever-growing "snowball." At the Christmas party,  Cubmaster Calander showed the  great tinfoil snowball with its  precious record, and a few of the  anonymous sheets were read  aloud by individual Cubs.  * *    *  Many good turns are done right  at home. How many thousands of  mothers have been thankful for  Scouting when a son has willingly offered to do some extra. task  around the house, run an errand,  shovelled snow, looked after a  younger child at play!  The story is (told  of a widow  with a large family whose oldest  boy was a Scout. One day When  helping   his   mother  with tasks  he  had   been   particularly  busy  such as clearing out the ashes in  )tihe furnace, which his Dad used  to do, he met his Scoutmaster in  the evening, on his way to.post  some   letters.   "Have  you  done  your good turn today?" his leader asked. The boy hesitated, embarrassed. Then he faltered, "I'm  "awfully sorry Sir, but' I've been  so busy with work Mother had  to have done,  that I've had  no  time for my good turn!"  * *     *  This boy was certainly the exception. Most lads have all kinds  of spare time . . . and it is the;  very lack of things to do which  is a contributing cause to their  getting into destructive mischief,  juveniles who are in trouble with  the law are vary seldom frori  Scout groups or Sunday School  classes.  From the very first the daily  good turn was woven into the  fabric of Scouting. Sir Robert  Baden-Powell, the orieinator of  Boy Scouts, in his books "Scout-  mastership' wrote: With a little  encouragement on the part of the  Scoutmaster, the practice of daily  good turns becomes a sort of fashion with boys. It is the very  best step towards making a Christian in fact, and not merely in  theory . . . this "good turn business" brings out the spirt of  Christian character towards h:.s  neighbor." ��� (Copyright)    .  RobertsCreek  (By Mrs. M. Newman)  As guests of the local club,  members of the Gibsons Badminton Club played at the)  Community Hall last Tuesday.  The evening . was spent, in  friendly competition followed  by a supper at which gaiety  prevailed. There were 17  guests from Gibsons.  All members of the Roberts  Creek Credit Union are urged  to attend the annual meeting  at Wilson Creek Community  ���Hall on Feb. 25. An interesting  evening is assured.  It is worthy of note that  more than $1,700 has been saved by the children at Roberts  Creek School in less than four  years.  Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Handy  have had a visit from their  son Charles, his wife hh& son.  Kent, from Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Ted Barton  and children have returned to  the Island after visiting the  R. Bartons.  KEY FOUND  A brass key attached to a  part of a plastic holder has  been turned in to the Coast  News. It was found by Councillor A. H. Pay on Monday near  the pumphouse on Gower Point  ���*-->*?.*:! There are markings on  the key by which it can be  identified. The steady spiral in food costs  can, in many cases, be traced to  fancy packaging and "built-in  maid service", according to the  B.C. Beef Cattle Growers' Association.  Consumers for some time have  "been painfully aware of increasing food costs, says Julian Fry,  the association's secretary, and  it is natural they should assume  this to be due to increased returns to the farmer. As a producer's organization, says Mr. iTry  the B.C. Beef Cattle Growers'  Association, is anxious for the  consumer to realize that the increased retail cost of beef is  not due to cattlemen forcing the  packer and the retailer to pay  excessive prices.  Referring to the recent report  of the Canadian Price Spreads  commission, Mr. Fry notes the  commission found that farmers  as a group had not gained in  relation to increased food costs.  Says the commission report-  ".  . .  it  does seem to  us that  the public expenditures made to  agricultural producers over the  period we have studied (1949-  1958) have certainly not been  more than a fair quid pro quo  for the low cost of food materials  (as distinct from food services)  to Canadian consumers, the burden of which has fallen on the  primary producer."  Mr. Fry contends that in a  period of falling prices for agricultural produce, while other  costs and wages remain high or  increase, something can be added to the merchandise without  increasing the price to the point  of creating buyer resistance.  This "built-in maid service''  may be in the form of an improved, but more expensive container or package, says Mr. Fry.  Supplying these non-food extras allows the retailer to maintain his mark-up at the same  level whereas this would not be  possible under conditions of reduced food prices, according to  Mr. Fry.  6   Coast News, Feb. 18, 1960.

A question and answer summary of the sonic boom phenomenon and its accompanying  noise   and damage potential.  BOX 197  Phones  STORE 339 ��� RESIDENCE 105Y  Phone SIBS0BS 4  Do   sonic booms   create   significant vibrations  on a  structure?  There is a peculiar scientific  fact that enters into the misunderstanding of vibrations.  Scientists have observed and  proven that people observe things  at times by perceptions that are  false. For example, it was reported that the structures were  being shaken violently and that  the ground was jumping up and.  down an inch or two when large  aircraft were flying overhead.  Even the scientists who went  tout to investigate admitted to  this feeling. Yet measuring the  pressures with the most sensitive instruments available indicated no movement ��� slamming  a screen door drove the measur-  mstrument completely off the  scale.  The fact is false perceptions  of movement are received because the sense organs in the  skin require only pressures measured in a millionth part per  square inch to cause a sensation  of movement. It is difficult for  people to believe that there is  no vibration of the earth but is  only a false perception.  As for the other fact about vibration, many people are familiar  with the principle of vibration  in harmonics and the feeling;  given by vibration of interior  walls and ceilings on its own  plane.  Most structural elements of  houses have natural frequencies  of vibration ranging from 5 to  20 and ever; 40 cycles per second.  The sonic boom is equivalent to  a frequency of about 3 cr less  cycles per second. Thus the elements of the house want to vibrate much more rapidly than  the" boom.  It is known that when a slowly  vibrating force is- applied to a  structure which has a much  higher rate of vibration, the  structure can not sense the vibration period of the force and behaves just as if the applied force  were steady. The structure is  ���'not in resonance" especially if  the force is only applied one  time. It, therefore, has a tendency not to vibrate by ite fundamental note or any of its harmonics. While the latter may and  in some cases do occur, they are  imperceptible in magnitude.  What effect will the sonic boom  have upon windows  and doors?  No mention has been made of  openings in a structure. Sonic  boom effect upon widows and  doors must be considered. First,  consider the windows-. The sash,  frame, etc., because of the materials of which they are built,  are all elements which are more  than strong enough to resist the  relatively minute force of the  boom. The glass, however, is another matter.  Glass is in one sense a strong;  material; however, it is- relatively  brittle compared to other building materials when used in thin  sheets. The methods by which  it is manufactured are apt to produce internal "lock-up" stresses.  !The methods of installation and  workmanship employed are apt  to produce additional internal  stresses dvie to its being bent  ever so slightly when installed.  Thus a sharp blow, even though  a light one, may shatter the glass.  This is not to say that sonic  booms will always break windows  because it definetly will not. Experiments with large explosions  have shown that ordinary win-  dJow glass will break at free  stream pressure ranging from  18 to 70 pounds per square foot.  This is much greater than the  force produced by booms and  supports the idea that glass  breakage is much more apt to  occur because of the stress induced during manufacture and  during installation.  Doors, with the exception of  glass area are much stronger  than necessary to resist .boom  forces. Weak points are the locks  and hinges. If the lock is loose  fitting the impact of the boom  may be sufficient to jar the opening and cause the door to. bang  Against the wall. Under this condition, or if the door is partly  ajar, the hinges might pull loose  or cause a split in the door jam.  YOUR   NEW  Watkins Dealer  Mr T.

Carey needed all his- patience  and courage, for a disaster soon  occurred which would have  crushed the hope out of an ordinary man. A printing-press had  been brought from England, and  By Archer Wallace  India is a land of many languages, and the missionary, "William Carey, soon saw that if  many people were to be reached  the Scriptures must be translat-    in spite of great difficulties, type  ed into the native tongues. Fortunately he had a perfect genius  for learning languages. "When he  was cobbling shoes he learned  six languages. :  When he first saw the curious-  looking Greek letters he walked  six miles to ask a man in another  village in order to learn this  language. He began to master  first one Indian language, then  another, until the natives were  amazed at his fluency. He translated parts of the Scriptures into  the native tongues. This meant  an amazing amount of work. In  some cases he spent years before  lie succeeded in making a translation that satisfied him.  *    *    *  Of tern he joined little children  as they played! in the streets-, and  as he listened to them he caught  new words. Some times he went  into the village schools and paid  close attention as the little folks  were being taught. After many  years he had actually translated  parts of the Bible into the following languages of India: Bengali, Oriya, Hindi, Sanscrit, Assamese, Maghadi,Khasi, Brujb-  "hasa, Kamouji, Kosali, Manipuri,  Ooderjeypuri, Bhugeti, Mariwari,  Bhatti, Haroati, Palpa, Khmaoni,  Gurwhali, Nepalese, Marathi,  Baluchi, Telegu, Dorgri, -. Kash-  imiiri, Mooltani, Sinah,. Panjalu,  "Konkani, Goorjarati. Here are  no less than 34 strange languages  into which this painstaking man  translated the Scriptures in  whole or in part.  Often these Scriptures found  their way into villages where no  missionary had ever been, and  yet the good seed was sown and  the way prepared for the coming  of the Gospel. Seventeen years  after the first copy of the Bible  in Bengali had left the. press  some Christian missionaries arrived at a Village far inland.  They knew no missionary had  ever been there before yet after  the first service was over a native said: "This is not a new  teaching for us. "Not far from  here there are villages where  they "Have had the good news for  a long time. They have given uo  their idols and they never lie,  for they say it is against what  their book teaches. Come and  see."  *    *    * .  This man jed the way and the  missipnaries followed to another  village where the elder showed  them a much-worn Bible kept in  a wood box. It was one of Carey's  first translations although how  it got to that village no one remembered.   Thus   was the  way  for the various languages had  been made. One day the building in which was the printing-  press and type foundery . and  where the type-settting and binding were done, caught fire.  There'���'"were valuable stores of  paper in the building and all  manner of precious manuscripts  in the type-setting office.  *    *     *  Carey was not in the building  at the time, but the manager  ordered! the doors and windowo  closed so that there not be any  current of air. He climbed onto  the roof and with help of others  began to pour water on the  flames below until they seemed  to be dying down. Then someone  carelessly opened a door at the  other end, of the building and  the fire burst forth and completely destroyed the building and  everything in it. From across  the river at Calcutta, Carey saw  the destructive fire and as the  lurid flames lit up the dark sky  his heart sank when he thought  of how the work of so many  months was apparently in vain.  However, it was not his way  to remain long discouraged and  so he set to work again, and in  a short time his printing-press  wa9 busier than ever. For more  than twenty years after this  Carey continued to send translations of the Scriptures all over  India. He was a man of extraordinary patience.  .

A group of teachers and  other people interested in education met on Jan. 27 at the  home of Mrs. C. A. Jackson to  discuss plans for publicizing  Education Week in the hope  that it would arouse interest  in education among those people who are not now parents  of children in school.  It was felt that the effort of  teachers to arouse this interest by having an Open House  Day has interested only parents of school children.  Because everyone in the district hajs been directly concerned with education at some  time, and some will again be-  directly concerned when their  children attend school, it was  the hope of this centralized  committee that an evening  program in various sections of  the school district would attract those people who cannot,  by reason of working hours,  visit the schools during day  sessions.  It was decided to invite  school board representatives to  take part. At the meeting on  February 10 there were present, besides the hostess, Mrs.  Jackson, six school board representatives and five teachers.  Several interesting suggestions for programs were offered, the most practicable of  which, for this year, was the  idea of a travelling panel. This  panel of speakers will have an  evening at Gibsons, one at Sechelt, and one at Pender Harbour, if those Parent-Teacher  groups wish to sponsor such  an evening.  Mr. Child accepted the position of chairman, and Mrs. Wiren as secretary, was instructed to invite several people to  be members of the panel.  Those who are interested will  meet with Mr. Child to make  final plans.
