He  urged all possible support be  given to the board in their  plans for necessary! school accomodation.  A vote of thanks was given  the school board for its work  this past year.  Mr., T Humphries' report of  the year's work outlined the  increase in school students,  12 percent over last year, and  100 percent over 1946 enrollment,, to a present ,1248.

Questions were asked concerning the report, the methods  of electing representatives,  and the amount of building  .the Board considered necessary.  Answering a question  garding what had been  covered or " decided ��� at '  Trustees convention in  matter of greater, use by the  public of school buildings,  Mr. Fahrni, who had' attended the Trustees' Workshop,  explained that in many areas  more use was made of the  school buildings by the public  than here. However, he stated, few districts were in the  same position as Seehelt board  which has the School HaU as  well as the high school hall.  He said that in many instances the charges made for an  evening's use of school buildings were up to $85 per night.  Here the charges covered only  actual heating, lighting and  janitor services.  a tourist trade. At present B.C.  has 70 percent of its population in the lower mainland  but the other spaces must be  filled as well, he added.  Royal D.

Davis  on  Oct.- 21    by    an.    xinkown  driver  (let' us hope    that    he  -will be fbttrid) directs attention  to the -dangers' on this partic-  ���ular highway'because of crazy  fool driving- on'the -" part' ..of  ��� ���those hurrying'"'to    catch    the  ��� Black   Ball  ferry    and.  upon  occasions, lack  of  care    upon  ��� the part   of the  pedestrians.  -Those    that   'have'.' to    walk,  .should endeavour;'to remain on  ��� the' side of th'e;'-tqad, off '.'��� the  motor traVelled highway, if  walking at night:and wearing  . dark clothes tliey'should darry  a -torch' or some' *"light object,  even a newspaper, so that .  they can be readily observed  by auto ' and truck drivers.  The blackouts in Great Britain during War II taught  many things in safety to pedestrians who travelled the  highways, as the writer can '  confirm.  If it can be'proved that any  - driver/who Vrriaims^ or! kills, a  pedestrian, was exceeding^Vthe  speed limit to any extent at?  all, he should be- heavily .punished and have his license  . suspended for a lengthy period.  The police cannot be on the  spot at all times, and' speeding '  takes place when they are  not around. A positively dangerous spot is the lower part  of the Seehelt Highway  lead-  Four civilizations unearthed in north  Traces of what may well  Xiave been the oldest known  civilization in the Canadian  north were uncovered this  stG_nner in the Yukon Territory, just 20 miles from the  Arctic Ocean. The archaeological find, which produced  tools and implements of four  civilizations hitherto unknown  in the Canadian north, was  made by a party headed by  Dr. Richard S. MacNeish,  chief archeaclogist with the  National  Museum   of   Canada.  In announcing the find, the  Hon. Jean Lesage, Minister of  'Northern Affairs' and National  Resources, termed! it one* of  the most significant archaeological discoveries ever made  in Canada.  The archaeological party,,  in an area 600 by 1,200 feet  Uncovered traces of nine differ-  . e_t civilizations. Four of the  civilizations were not known  lo have existed in the Canadian north. One of them may  ���well be the oldest so far discovered anywhere on the northern  part  of  this coitinent.  Many of the 8,000 artifacts  are identical in design and concept to others which have  been unearthed in eastern  &sia. They would seem to  give further substantial evidence that there was a considerable influx of people and  ideas from eastern Asia to  this continent, via the Bering  Straits.  Dr. MacNair related how he  and an Eskimo guide had  stumbled upon the find last  year, almost by accident. A  cursory examination of the  site was enough to convince  Dr.   MacNeish  that it    would  yeild rich  archaeological treasures.  ��� A  party  of     11,     including  eight Eskimos,   an    archaeolo-'  gical student from  Iraq, who  ' had been sent by his government to receive training in  Canada, Dr. MacNeish and  his wife, an ethnologist, flew  to within two miles of the site  this summer. After marking  out an area 600 by 1,200 feet  they began their search. .  "It soon became obvious",  Dr. MacNeish said, "that this  had been a sort of Grand Central station of the north where  everybody stopped, we uncovered hundreds of implements made of bone and stone  scrappers, arrow heads, and  flakers. We also unearthed a  considerable quantity of pottery, some of which may be  connected with Siberian archaeological cultures 3,000 to  5,000 years old. #  "However,  our  most    interesting discovery was made, in .  the     permafrost,"    Dr.     Mac-  1 Neish added. "We had found  a number of implements belonging to the oldest civilization known to have \existed in  northern North America. Then,  under a layer of clay, several  inches below these artifacts,  we found 10 excedingly crude  stone implements, obviously  from an even earlier civilization."  .As yet it has not been possible to determine the approximate age of the, discoveries  made in the perma-frost. However, carbon 14 tests will be.  made later to .establish the  period in which the imple-  *were used. In carben  14 tests  . by measuring ��� the radioactivity of carbon with artifacts, it  is possible to determine their  approximate age.  The location of the discoveries was on the banks of the  Firth river at a place that  bad obviously been a cariboo  crossing for eerrturies. A small  rock "hill, an ideal observation  spot for hunters, and the most  prominent rise on the coastal  plain for miles, lay immediately to the east of the plateau whioh contained the artifacts V ,  During almost two months  of digging this summer, the  party was constantly beset  with raging winds, fog and  snowstorms. Their.'camp was  flattened1 on three occasions.  Dr. MacNeish stressed that  they had dug only a minute  portion of the area "It is undoubtedly filled with many  times tlie number of' artifacts  we have been able to recover  so far," he said. "It will be a,  rich site \ possibly the richest  in ihe north - for many years  to come, and should prove of  the utmost importance in tracing the early cultures, that  lived in our country."      y-  Some of the pottery recovered try Dr MacNiest is different to any other yet found  in the new world, although  similar pieces have been unearthed in .. eastern . Sibria.  Other pieces of pottery are similar to some previously found  in southeastern Manitoba, Ont-  tario and Quebec.  In spite of the fact that the  early civiliations which lived  on the banks of the Firth  River had been relatively  dose to the ocean no imple-  mnts were found which would>  suggest that they had utilized  the sea for food.  ing to the ferry wharf, where  there is a nasty bend on the  road near the telephone office.  Time aft.gr time auto drivers have come down this hill,  at totally unwarrented speed,  not only dangerous to themselves, but to people in ihe  vicinity, in their idiotic ��� hurry .  to catch the ferry. Years ago,  when I had some connection  with municipal affairs in a  Vancouver Island municipality, we were compelled to set  police traps to ��_aieh. these  irresponsible people,, a procedure- that succeeded, in part,  in bringing the effences under  control.  However, where any citizen  observes the law being. broken in this regard, he should  try and obtain the licence  number, and if he has a witness, lay a charge with the  local police.

As per Bill Griffith's story,  only the��� Vaughan children  lived near the school, .-all  others at that time came by  row-boat. Many a time I begged: them not to venture out  in rough weather but nothing  could stop them.

"When this is achieved the  entire Sunshine Coast district  will be covered, but to ensure  expansion and continuity an  increasing number of sincere  men and women willing to  take an active part in Scout  and Cub leadership is required. To that end I appeal to  every parent and community  minded- person to come forward and offer his or her  services, so that we, to use the  words of the late Col.C. Batten, 'may meet the challenge  of the future'.  "1 should be most remiss if  I did not at this time extend  the most sincere appreciation  of the executive committee,  to the men and women who  ���have so generously and unselfishly given their time and  efforts in promoting Scouting  on the Sunshine Coast.  *?To the    members    of    all  Group    Committees,    to     the  staff of Scout leaders and Cub  ��� -masters,;-'' to    all " those  ' who  helped    make    bur v flnahdal i  campaign a success and to all !  who by^their. interest' and sup- ,  port in any way bras made r it i  -possible for- every Boy'^ln our 1  district to become a B6y Scout ���  -or a Cubv should he so -desire,  to all    those      our    heartfelt  thanks. 7 '������������;  'T would in this connection,  extend our special thanks to  the editor and staff of the  Coast News for the extensive  coverage given to Scout news  and to theJKinsmen and Mrs.  Orcharde for the spltndid contribution received as a result  of the entertainment given by  Mrs. Orcharde's jDance School  at Roberts Creek."  Finances for the district  were reported to' be equal to  expenses and as a result the  district is starting off its new  officers with plenty of Cubs  and Scouts and not much in  the exchequer.  On the platform with Mr.  Johnston were Mr. Wilscn,  Johnny Wood, of Gibsons,  Scout Field Commissioner J.  Blain of the Vancouver Island  Coast News Nov. 3,  1955      S  district and Boy Scout.. H.Q.  Organizer J.L. McGregor who  later led* the boys in their  howl. ��  Local representatives presented reports on their activities and Mr. Blain of Gibsons'  reported mere leaders were  needed if more than one pack  was to operate. There were  now 27 scouts with almost  that many seeking application  to join but there were no  leaders . to take charge of  them, he said  Roberts Creek reported by  , Syd Butler, had 18 Scouts and  Cubs and with more leaders  there could be another group.  Jack McLecd reporting for  Wilson Creek, said theyi have  turned to Sea Scouts with a  membership of 11.  Seehelt reported 13 Cubs  but Mr. Stockwell said tlie district was looking towards bigger and better Scouting in the  days to come. *  Mr. MacGregor in his talk  to boys and parents explained  how under the old system it  was not possible to get the best  men to take charge of groups  but under tlie new system  where a district group makes  the selection there was a great  improvement in the calibre of  men chosen.,  He urged the boys to look  upon themselves as being members of a world-wide brotherhood. There are Scouts and  Cubs in 66 countries. He told  of the jamboree this summer  attended' by 11,000 boys from  65 countries and he hoped  they would in time see the  moving pictures that were  made of the jamboree.  He urged the lads to remem-  ber^the Scout promise and to  live up to it. Some might   regard Scouting .���as    sissy    but, ���  he said, it takes a real man to  live up to! the Scout promise.  He urged  tlie..boys to respect  their leaders and    to    be    on  time for    meetings    and    get  things underway* as   soon    as  possible'^ and when they got  ., home to ��� tell    their   parents  "what they   .did    because,    he  said,  "they  are interested in  IwhatfiaiMP^^re doii$g*&��W   .*!'  ��� &3^qmi$$ am"mmfofci, tile  i Scouts and Cubs staged various activities of Scouting &>  parents could see what the/  were Under taking..

There is  a scarcity of seamless pieces  of cotton or flannelette 22x-  31 inches They are most urgently needed. Any Eastern  star member would be happy to  receive them and pass them  on to the various groups.  A party of three OES members set forth last Thursday  amid heavy rains and winds  to.attend a sewing meeting at  Seehelt at the home of Mrs.  Edna Wakefield. The meeting  went along smoo-hly and many  garments for the annual bazaar were completed as the  women sewed industriously.  As the three aforementioned  approached Wil^ors Creek on  the homeward journey, the car  starteo coughing ro-Uy and  seemed loathe to return home.

C  A; young man once called on  . Bishop Phillius Brooks, the  famous Boston preacher. The  bishop talked of the great days  of the past, of stirring times  when the nation was young  and growing arid every new  day brought its adventure.  The youth was thrilled as- he  heard* of the brave men who*,  held their lives lightly if only  liberty and truth prevailed. To  the bishop he said: "I wish I  had lived in those far-of days;  I think I too could have beerv  a hero."  Then the bishop said something very wise and true: "My  boy," he said, '.'every age  brings its opportunity, and if  you cannot be a hero now,  you wouldi not have been a  hero then."  Somehow the past, with its  adventure and fierce struggles,  seems so wonderful to usi  that we find it hard to believe  anything happening in our day  is important or interesting.  But it is. There is an old pro  verb:     "Distant   -fields, look  green." Strange .to    say,-  this  ���saying-is very much like;..jone-.  ' 'written thousands of years ago  and found in the .Bible: "Wis-:  dom is  before.him  that  hath  understanding; but ..the eye's of,  the fool are  in the    ends    of  the. earth."

"= dreri eager  to  attend   Sunday  School,  there were : not   sufficient teachers.  *     *     *  In the community there was  #a -.Well-educated    young,    man  wbbr wasV keen to go to Africa  as a missionary,/ He. had read  pf Liyingstone  arid many others who had gone there, and he  '  could recite from memory the  story' of their hardships    and  thrilling exploits!     Several  times he was approached and  asked to teacb in the Sunday  .school,-' but lie' was  not interested. His mind was on Africa  and of the needs of those neglected and     ignorant    people.  To  the boys  and    girls    who  were running the    streets    of  his  own district he  was more  or less, indifferent/   No?  long  ago   the. man  died.  He  never  went to Africa, and he never,  realized that he    could    have ,.���  been a    missionary    right    at  home.  There have been great heroes in the far-off times, ��� but  there are equally great heroes  today. There have been occasions in history when it seemed as if evil would prevail  over goodness, but brave men  stood out boldly for righteousness and truth. Who will deny  that there are forces of evil,  today which must be checked  and overthrown?

The Badminton club needs  new rriembers, and if a soccer  league is to be formed there  must be a larger turnout.  But it is not the forming of  these different  clubs and leagues that is difficult, it is getting the sports    fan    out    to1  events.  It takes money to rent halls  buy equipment and run an  organization. This money  comes from Mr. and Mrs.  Sports Fan who pay their few  cents for the privilege of  watching good amateur sports.  But it is not only the money  that is needed, it is the moral  support that is given an athlete when he is playing to a  large crowjd and the cheers are  going his way.
