A panel, composed of y the  staff. School Board, parents;  and student representatives  discussed this now controversial subject before ; a meeting  of parents, staff, an'd trustees,  which concluded with the resy  olution passed by the meeting:  "Parents unanimously support  the students in approaching  the teaching staff for permission to hold senior parties,  subject to staff and parental  supervision."  Following definite dissatisfaction resulting from/ senior  parties held last year*and in  preyious years, * a ban was  placed on all senior student  parties. The student council  expressed  the   view  that  this  year's students should not be  penalized for the faults of  students now gone from the  school. When the executive's  decision was handed down,  continuing the ban, the, students, sought this hearing before the PTA.  Mr. Les Peterson, for the  staff, gave a brief resume of  past history which "had led-  to the banning of the parties.  The staff was not willing to  act as ''policemen" to see. that  regulations laid downi;for��������� the  conduct of these parties sho uld  be adhered to. His outline of  ' the. situatin was supported by  some of the parents present  who had experience as sponsors, of senior parties.  Mrl J. Stephenson,' of Ihe  staff,- was' willing to support  the students in their own efforts to " organize parties on  an acceptable basis.  Mrs. Swan, for the School  Board, felt that the students-  could be placed on an 'honor'  basis, but met with considerable,, opposition from parents  present, in the light of the  past, when that system had  been tried. v  The largest roads clearance  project ever undertaken in  Gibsons' village was passed  Tuesday nighty by the ..Village  Commission at .its regular  meeting. ���  The amount involved is  $6,6~75 and ,the contract was  awarded Durant Irgens. .Some  13 right-of-way  clearances are  involved and will  go  a    long  - way towards opening  up new  areas for building.  '     "This is  the largest project  . we  have   ever  undertaken   in  Gibsons and  will  go: a    long  way towards  opening up various      areas,"      Commissioner  Ballentine said when speaking  on the matter.  .... ������ P  Areas in which work will be  done include: Martin road,  North Fletcher road, Fletcher  lane from North Fletcher to  Martin road, Fletcher lane,  Martin to Wyngaert road,  South Fletcher road, Alder-  springs road, Glassford road  from Gower Point to Trueman  road,      Trueman    road    from  Housing loans available now  ~T to whole Peninsula  Loans for new homes and  loans fo the improvement of  present homes are now available to residents of Sechelt  P e n i n.sula under.

The.National   Housing     act  passed in.-1954 provides financial assistance, for. new homesi  and details of this can be bb-  'tained , from    Mr.    \Minnion.  11  Port Mellon experience  Mr. White, a parent from  Port Mellon, cited the success-  ful 'teen' parties held there,  and stated that they were run  under definite rules, with no  exceptions made. He was in  f avor,.vpJE - senior student par-  .les'r-inder^oper ^iperVision.  Mrs. McKibbin dealt in  full with the matter of regulations and their ^enforcement. .  Mrs. McKibbin stressed the  need for co-operation between  teachers and parents in the  training of the children to accept regulations, with the  sure knowledge of .y conse-  cjuences; ypf. breaking these.  She intimated that those" of  the students who were unwiU-  ing to accept the matter of  supervision and regulation of  their parties, should be encouraged to remain away from  senior parties.  She placed the blame for  much of the difficulty that had  arisen upon the parents and  the schools, for. their failure^  to train the children in the  "acceptance of discipline, and  respect for the^ place of auth-.  ority in their jives.  She felt that the . seniors  were entitled to have parties  at the school, with the thorough understanding of ���-���.-< necessary regulation and super-,  vision, ; and ;j. thef; inescapable  consequences of flouting them.  For the'; students' group,  Geoff White.questioned the ac-  ceptanceHiof^ and; continuance  of, a ban which had been laid  down because of activities cf  student- of former years. He  expressed the students' realization that a few members of  previous groups had made  necessary the . ban, y under  .which all the students were  now chafing. '  Wilma Luoma expressed the  idea that the groups who had  made trouble had gone, and  ,the present groups felt they  should be given an opportunity  to prove themselves.  Warren McKibbin pointed  ^-ouV-thaFtlie-barr- Had-been ele-  clared by last year's student,  council and executive. He  also stated that many of the  parties "held after basketball  games, etc., included senior  students.  Helen Garry suggested the  teaching staff should be asked  what improvements and restrictions would be acceptable  for them to. approve; of and  sponsor parties., ������������;-"  The general discussion was  spiritgd, and concluded1 with  the. framing of the resolution  that the parents support the  students, in their efforts to  have the: parties rerihstated.-./  Fire calls  Gibsons fire siren wailed  about -2:30 p.m.^Thursday, last,  ;and with the Feidler fire, so-  fresh in their minds,; residents;  held-���'���;their.-'" breath until'-' assured the fire was a small  one' aboard' a boat moored at  the main wharf.

It is expected that this work  will be completed during the  next, few months and will allow the opening up of' the  areas involved to prospective  builders.  Opening up of the real estate adjacent to where these  roadways will be cut through,,  should have some- effect on  construction work this summer.

The resolution presented by  Mrs. K. E. Jermain noted that  several applications have been  made for purchase of Crown  lands on 'the shores "of these  lakes and that much of the  land in the area ��� is already  privately . owned.  It was also pointed out that  the lakes on. Sechelt Peninsula were sport-fishermen's attractions and that the spawning beds for salmon should be  saved from pollution and despoliation.  New roads into the area  have made' the lakes much  more accessible to holiday  se&kers- and tourists, thus  making them . a decided asset  to the tourist industry, the  resolution read. .

The meeting also was of the  opinion the road from the  main highway to the government wharf on Porpoise Bay-  should be properly graded  and hard surfaced in view of:  the number of commercial  trucks and log hauling trucks-  using it.

This   is   a  busness  area and the   road  is  the access to  the only     hotel  in Sechelt. Both Porpoise Bay  road and  the  waterfront road  were reported    to    be    in    a  deplorable   state.

As, the result of .the misdemeanors of .a few, the  many must suffer. By suggesting a few it must not be  inferred that they number usually one or two. It varies  from school to school and community to community.  School officials blame the parents. In part they  Hiightbe right. The parents retaliate by saying once their  offspring go out of their sight they cannot tell what they  .tire doing or where. The parents are also right.  It could be that the spirit of the age is. responsible  saind there is more truth than poetry in this rerhark. Having said this does not imply that youth is to blame. Perhaps one should look over a broader horizon and blame  those who have had the greatest, and for emphasis we  again say greatest, emphasis on life, such as movies, ra-  dio and television and our publishing world.  The movies have set a pattern of life ably assisted  by the' radio and the world of publication. It hardly seems  necessary to have to explain the quality of some publications available today on immature minds.  Parents, teachers and school officials are faced  ���with facte which generally amount to the same thing but  each looks upon the situation, from a different point of  .view. However, there is no reason why school teachers  should.be saddled with responsibilities beyond their call  of duty.  Many of our children today while healthy physically  :ave not healthy mentally. These mentally unhealthy,  younger fry, while not using the same* words, regard parents and all those in authority as being mentally unhealthy. They have their own words for this state. Unless  it has changed one description denotes you as a "square"  unless you conform to their ways.  For the editor to say he has a solution to the problem would be a definite exaggeration. Even after one's  family has actually passed "through this phase of vlife, there  ���does not appear to be an immediate answer;       -  .Removing parties from, the schools to some other  place or vice-versa solves nothing. It does not change anything inside the minds of the young. "'--..  It is a problem that will take time to solve and it  can start in the home but unless it is supported by external influences, what-is done in the home or the school can  foe and is being obliterated very quickly.  '      POTENT POTIONS  BY L.S.J.  The letters received from  far and near on account of  this trivia in The Coast News  are a mixed blessing in the  sense that it shows an appre-  . ciative interest, but it also  means that in most cases! a  reply is called for.  One of these .missives from  the 'Toba area reminded    me  of my old Salish friend Chief  Harry. I was waiting for    the  steamer  the  USS  Charlie  Olson more correctly known as  the  Chelohsin   and  the    chief  with his family ark with- a  5  H.P.  Lasthope in it  was tied  up to the float. He was then  fishing dogs for livers  as we  were .at the height of that infamous    piece    of      quackery  known as    the    vitamin    era  which noftw has been    happily  reduced to its proper proportions more or less.      The fantastic price for a can of livers  had nearly run the dogfish off  the map and fishing was precarious which   explained   .the  chiefs lassitude at    the    moment. ,        . -   '  The chief's    wife    was    as  broad ias she was long and the  i little    focsle  . was    ;a      mite  crowded with her    and    tne  five kids and furthermore she  was ailing. A sympathetic enquiry into the trouble and the  chief said    "alright tomorrow  taking good Indian medicine."  This made me curious and the  chief showed me this panacea.  It was a ratfish in    a    gallon  family  forbears    were     cattle  and meat dealers   and this is  an outdoor business that    has  never  been    concerned     with  air  conditioning and as    long  as the meat    did    not   freeze  solid the product and    profit  was    in      general      enhanced  '  thereby.  ���This of course- necessitated  ���   standing around a good >. deal  and in winter it    occasionally  laid the, odd man.   cut    with  cold or1 some such ailment. If  the stages    of    the    infection  reached   uncomfortable     proportions a visit to the butcher  shop where a chunk'of    mutton suot  or  fdl'was onlained  grt>l:s    and   ' rendered       into  liquid.   This -golden   ambrosia  was ihc-n beate.i'into enmlsifi  cat*on with _.,���, equal quantity  fruit can that was allowed to  decompose in the sun into putrescence    until    the     golden  hued fat  had floated to    the  top which took  two or three  days. The. dosage was, the. frequent dipping    of y the   .forefinger into    this ; elixir    and  quickly drawn into the lftoiith.  I leave the"   uhagery;    to -the  reader'.  , .--y-> yV.   , .'������'���'- yV:.,:':.-  That is.a   memorypicture  that 'tpoH my mind back over  the years    to    the    old    land  where the   picture    reappears  albeit, refined and dim :N There  is a    similarity   here   that ''I  think is worthy of record.

This savory had to be supped  . or. sipped the -more leisurely,  the better. I admit that there  is a vast gulf between my Salish friend's- brew and  the divers tasty ingredients that are  optional  in the Ehglish countryside cure but basically they  are the    same    and    further  more ftie cost is nil. When we  hear daily the outpourings of  radio and see the encomiums  in print of cures that are in  turn condemned and repudiated by the better class of  medicos, we wonder if the  common man isn't"- getting  more stupid  than ever.    '   x  Education  cost  ie  re  Legi$lative REPORT  Fire protection  .�����   m   m   m  ���m   to   4_   �����  Distributing the cost  By  the organization  of    an  '"Improvement     District      for  Fire   Protection"      only,      it  -would be certain     that    Gibsons,     Granthams,     Hopkins,  Gower Road and North Road  residents would have better  i*ire protection services, and  that the present fire" equipment now serving the district  can be supplemented by hewer and faster equipment.  This idea is simply a form  ���of distributing the cost of  equipment over a wider area  aiid seeing that everyone coh-  Iributes. Under an Improvement District for Fire Protec-  . tion only, a board Of trustees  Tvouid be elected by all land  owners in the district and  this board would have the  power to administrate the district's requirements for fife  protection. The boafd cannot  exercise any poWer to interfere with 'existing Improvement Districts or Water Boards  in the area since it ,-��� would  only be incorporated for fhe  protection.  The cost to the landowners  Twould not increase the mill -  seaie to any great amount  since $2 to $3 per landowner  per year would probably be  all required. This "extra" taxation lias more than been  saved during the past year by  the presence of the existing  department in Gibsons which  has cut fire insurance premiums in the area. It is also  foolish for anyone to argue  that $3 per year is too much  for fire protection.  The problem before   us    at  the moment ��s that with an increasing population, a greater  fire hazard exists.       To meet  this we must have    adequate  equipment. The present equipment is well-worn and served  its purpose. A new fire truck  is a must. 'However, no  community  can   afford  a  $20,000  to   $30,000    fire    truck    and  matching equipment. Therefore  it is necessary to curtail  the  service now offered and limit  it to its own area. As can be  readily seen, areas lelt unprotected would _ have to    stiffer  or in s6nie way; raise adequate  funds on their own for   their  own protection.  . The embryo of this ���idea;;for  an improvement   district    for  fire protection has come from  the Gibsons    Volunteer    Fire  Department     members   . and  they are now in the    process  of asking all interested people  in the area to form a' committee with the view ''that    this  committee will publicize/educate arid finally hold a plebiscite of the people'in all  /districts  to this end- Once   .the  people show they are for this  scheme, a board of trustees to  look after the landowners' interest must be elected and our  communities will   then   have  the opportunity of    acquiring  the needed financial assistance  from the government for their  own   fire   protection     requirements.  Please watch for further articles and notices On this plan  so you may plainly see its  need and assist in its growth  fcr your protection.��� Contributed. .  BY TONY GARGRAVE, MLA  "One kilowatt," said the  Premier, "is equal tb a day's  work by one man and it only  costs half a cent."  That fact, helps to give Canadians our high standard ���of  living. Anybody who has  watched a paper machine at  work does not need to be convinced of-that. That is why it  ���is hard to understand why the  government is so stubborn  about the Kaiser dam project  on the Arrow Lakes.  The B.C. government yhas.  offered.to build a storage dam  in Canadp for the benefit of  the Kaiser Aluminum smelter  in the United States. In return  B.C. would receive, on a 50-  year contract, a fixed sum of  money each year plus only 20  percent of power.  Mr. Sommers, Minister, of  Lands and Forests, said that  it Would result in a net return to the government, after  construction yand maintenance costs, of between one  and two million dollars.  "Power .means progress."  That's what bur own power  cbmmissioh tells us. Why give  away so niubh,hydro power or  man days, even for cash?  i say, build the factories  here inyB".G., and ��� we .will reap  iOO times more wealth both  for the people and government.  Any such,- deal should provide at least 50 percent of the  power, for B.C. We are in a  powerful bargaining . position  because . the Americana . are ;  starved for power.  The story- bf Ontario .hydro  is interesting. That province  made the basic mistake of exporting power to. v the U.S. before the First World War. Industries and communities were  built below the border, in the  USA; with Ontario power. :.  To    add    insult    t6    injury  when1 the term of the contract  had expired yand Ontario   be-,  came short of electricity,   the|y  power could riot he ��� cut    6ff.|~  The United States would have^  regarded pulling '���the '.switch'  as an unfriendly act;  .   The proposals bf  the    B.C.  government set the  stage for .  just such a situation with   the  Kaiser dam.    The government  has    refused    to    change    its.  mind.    Along with opposition  members,41 urged the premier  and Mr. Sommers to go to Ot  tawa with their experts "and  discuss the whole situation before a parliamentary committee.    . \  So far they have' declined  to attend.. I suspect that the  Kaiser dam contract, though  bringing jri a few quick- dollars now, will be, in the long  run, bad business \ti.or B.C.'s  industrial growth.'  The most significant news  of; the week was unemployment:���the highest ever in  post-war years. _ Provincial  governments cannot solve the  problem, it' is true, but our  minister of labor hasn't helped. Here is the story.  John Squire, MLA from Al-  berni, discovered that a number of logging camps on Vancouver Island were shut down  while-,;others were' working.  overtime., Mr. Squire and his  union, (IWA) then asked for a'  list, of recently issued overtime permits. Although the  law provides that these permits must be publicly posted,  the minister of labor refused  the request, saying they were  confidential.  Later, dodging the issue on  the floor of the legislature,  the minister informed us that  ho breakdown of the ^permits  by industriesy^as .'.'available-.''���  Trade' unionist's will ' be  shocked tb learn that "the logging camps, i-ttiat. were * shut  down were buyhijg /logs from  . the camps', that were",! working  on overtime permits;  P?."':^'''T'Ynli^"i      V  'in'  Following  the    fire    jwhich  gutted the    Fairway    Service  Station, people of Gibsons and  district provided the Feidler  family with a well equipped  home on Wednesday. The  Feidlers moved in on Thursday.      ..  Donations poured in, from  the Kiwanis for clothing and  shoes, the Lome Blames with  beds, chesterfield, etc., the  George Hills with dishes and:  utehsihv Mrs. Telford with  pillows. A large group of local  men turned out to see that  all utilities were connected j  and necessary oil for the  stove. Every thing that could  be done ^was .done, without  fanfare and without aggrandizement. "   :  Thursday afternoon Mrs. L.  Blaine, Mrs. Cartwright, and  Mrs. H. E. Wilson were a.11 at  the new home, helping , with  curtains and blinds, covers  and whatnot, to get the family settled. Mrs. Feidler was  delighted to have their help,  while she was busy scrubbing  out cupboards and doing other  chores.  Mrs. Lowe, had  taken   "the  small children  the    night,   of  the  fire, which really pleased .  the parents. ,'������-.

The camera also takes a  peak at Jerusalem, home of  both the Christian and Moslem  faiths.  The fim points  up  the fact ���  that   as   these   cities   became  great, they forgot moral    and ���  spiritual values, and their power and wealth dried up.

I ran to these  lovely pieces in the walnut  or bleached oak, with the permanent, no mar finish.' Not  only the finish is delightful,  but the design of the tobies  themselves, was appealing.  One of our shops is allowing  a new ball-point, pen, all'metal  or the plastics, with fine: or  medium points. Quite a departure.  Nancy Didie Pants have ar-  iyed, in, a Gibsons shop and a  Sechelt shop. These are plastic-sprayed Terry cloth, water  proof, yet without that clammy feel of the rubber pantie.  Colorful, too.

The  main, issue was the election of  officers and Dave Wilson of  Sechelt was the unanimous  choice for president. This is  Dave's third term that I know  of and he certainly is the right  man for the job.  Bill Peterson of Gibsons  was elected vice-president and  Hal Roberts was returned as  secretary-treasurer.  The greater part of the  meeting was taken up with a  discussion of umpires. It was  finally decided to pay the  umpires a small fee for their  services. To me this was the  only way it could be done  but I think the fee a little  small. I say pay the umps . a  fair fee and each team can  take a little less at the end of  the year; after all, it's    more  IWEN & MATERIALS  for any  BU-LD.NG JOB  Carpenters,   Painters  Electricians  Plumbers  .
