There  appear to< lie differing thoughts about this. Some of those inter-  42Stfer3;7 have expressed the idea that a long term lease should be  pantedand others are pulling for a short term, lease. Those fa-  <roamgj;th�� long term lease argue that a five year period would  ifcfci&life to give the club a greater feeling of security arid allow  3&. let plan further ahead on its project. Those favbring the.short  iermTlease are more concerned with human, frailty and view the  jpossibilify of changing members, through pebple leaving the area  ss^iLehange inthepresiding, officers arid, feel the shorter lease,  5��^a#! ttw�� years wpuM be a better safeguard for municipal  Huihotzjfigs,  ,v (Both ddesp^the argupient have points in tlieir favor but  ^��.|^tength of! the lease, ^lould have any effect on operations  adt'ti^lSeyb' clyb ;6r the. airport is not. quite clear.

The report of the governor  of the Bank of Canada was  transmitted recently to the  Minister of Finance. It recounts the work of the Bank  during 1956 and has much to  say about Canada's ecorioriiie  situation ���- inflation in partic-  ��� ular. While it is too compre-  lierisive to summarize here,, it  clarifies the causes of inflation,  and describes what has been  done. to resist it.  The report says that the current inflation was caused by  ���the attempt to buildl too many  new factories, schools, roads,  bridges, hospitals, utilities,  houses ��� "capital" facilities of  one kind or another ��� all at  one time. Capital expansion on  this scale cannot be achieved  all at on.ee because this, is be-  ^oridTthe capacity for existing  supplies of materials and manpower^ In the effort to, -achieve  it, competitiori for tliese existing supplies forced prices upi  iri one.way or another this  competition was largely re-,  sporisiijie for a'. rise. in the cPst  of living of 3% in the last seven mbriths of 1956. It also  sparked a tremendous increase.  'in iriiports from other countries. * '  The report says that if the  effort to expand,so quickly had  not been restrained* in some  way, prices would have risen  .xrioxfe^ and. more rapidly in the  charsietferistic pattern of inflation to foe followed by an in-  ievitJable aftermath of serious  dislocation and depression.  Capital expansion usually  calls for borrowing and the total borrowing that can .be done  is lilmtedl by the available isup-  ply of credit. While there was  a great increase in the amount  of credfit^available in 1956 the  Bank of Cairiada did not permit  bank credit to increase to the  point where everybody could  borrow all they wanted. The  competition for availably cred- 7  it forced interest rates to rise.  The limitations on the increase  in the supply of credit and the  growing cost of borrowing!  helped to moderate the rate of  total expenditure. ToT this extent the pressure on prices of  materials and seirvices was not  as great as it might have been.  At the.same time-the riseTin  interest rates acted to encourage saving rather than spending and this also helped to reduce the pressure on prices.  The report speaks of the problems created for many-by the  increased cost resulting from  competition to borrow money  ������ and sometimes the.difficulty ox borrowing all the money  that was wanted. It emphasizes that these problems ���- however trying-^- were,niuch less  serious' than those;'that would  be caxised, by the alternative of  an accelerating rise in the cost  of everything else tliroughout  the whole country. A willy-,  nilly increase, in the supply of  credit to meet all borrowing}  demands without 'an equal in-.  crease in available goods arid  services would shrink the purchasing power of, money faster  and faster, with all those least  able to endure the shrinkage  having the worst of it.  An increase in the supply of  credit at a time when all the  resources of the country were  producing at top capacity  would not of itself have increased production.

One thing is certain, we can  but sympathize with whoever  seeks for divine aid at;such' a-  time. Only a fool couldvsneer  at peppe no matter how crude  their ideas might be.~ We begin life by asking questions arid!  we" continue to.do so.- We do  not ask the same questions but  thoughtful and reverent people  constantly ask why certain  things should happen. One  thing is certain ��� there is no  reason for being, ashamed in  seeking explanations.  A few years ago I visited an  old fisherman in his cabin on  the west coast of Newfoundland. His life had been hard,  with continual exposure to -severe weather and to much danger. He had never known luxury and^had always had difficulty in getting bare necessities  In .the course of our conversation he quietly asked why "God  dfoes not do better." There was  nothing irreverant in his remark, he was as devout as he  was sincere, *but repeated hardships and seemingly futile labors made him wonder why  such things should be.  He seemed almost ashamed  of himself for even having  voiced his difficulties. When  I told him that men hac] been-  ��sking that same question for  thousands of ^ears ��� that  many of the Psalms of the Bi  ble uttered the same query ���  he was greatly astonished. But  it is true, and whether it be a  scholarly philosopher seeking  to reconcile the"?eeming contradictions of life or a humble  fisherinah sadly pondering over  "liis lot, men do face life with  a question mark.  If, in the providence of God,  much remains mysterious, is it  not reasonable to believe that  what seems closed to us, or perhaps looks topsyturvy, is. clear  and open before the' eyes of  Him with 'whom we have to  do?

Very many of the residents  <Ii<$ not riiake their livings  here; the head of the family  often worked quite far afield  the family could as well have  been in Vancouver., or at some  other point iri the province.

Many people preferred to  live, and raise their families,  not in a large city, but schools  for their children were important,  Gibsons had good! schools,  and was in other respects a convenient and nice place to live:  so many permanent homes  were established here. A two-  room school had been built  about 1910 on the site of the ���  old school. I think this was for  elementary grades only. Then  sometime later it was expanded to a four-room; I think about  that time teaching of the early  grades of high school was begun.  Soon after (I am nOt sure  of the date) teaching of all  high school grades was unde%  taken; the old school building  which had been moved to the  back of the property, was put  back into service. A school bus  service was put in operation to  accommodate ;��� those children  who were walking long distances. My own sisters and brothers had walked :��� from Tbeyond!  Hopkins Landing, through mud  rain and snow. Some present  day school attendents might  try that on their. tambourine.  Then about 1940 the old  Howe Sound School District  was. extended by amalgamation  :with the .Roberts Creek East  school, and; the bus. service expanded. To. try to cope with  the: growing school attendance,  . ^basement roorns. %eto> were  opened, with dater. classesVbe-  ing held .:--Jn .the -gyiririasium,  the Legion Hall, and other-rent  ed buildings; but'���_as-fast as a  ,T*ew room,: was.provided, -more  chilctreri: arrived, Tand more n  room- was.needed. .7  -TMeantime Proflessor.;- Cameron had brought down his ire-  port on,the whole.educational  systerii in .the province, a massive work, going iriio^rnucli de-  ytaiL I personally thinkTthis report was bne! of the Tfinie'st arid  Tmpst comprehensive-and-reliable ever to-beTtnade. by a: goy-  ���ernmerit conVmissionyand tlie1  xecommend'ations made most  instructive and worthy.  These recommendations ��� were  finally implemented by provincial legislation which became:  effective about 1946...  : y.Among the many important-  points covered was an entirely  new system of sebbbl  arid the ��� creation, of "Large Ru  ral School. Districts." The old  ���Howe Sound School District be  .came, a i>art of-the new^ large  rural  district, which: includfed  s Bowen, y Gambier, .Keatsy and  the r adjjacent smaller/ islands,  and extended On the.mainland  has eight teaehers and: 297 pupils; the junior-senior high  schoo has 18 teachers andi 365  pupils. This total, 662 pupils,  is a far cry from the dlay I.  started to school, and kids of  four years old were placed on  the roll to get the attendance  up to the eight required to  keep the school going. And  judging by present.indications,  the end is by no means reached!  We have-and have had good  schools, and good school boards  I feel that rnuch credit is due  the people of the district in  that the majority have at all  .times shown all willingness to  supply the.best possible in education, often at quite heavy  taxation, for the benefit of tlie  children.

The new school board, -elected  to  administer   the .greatly  enlarged district; were at orice  faced with the problem of increased school accommodation;  the situation at Gibsons, with  classes crowded into all available  nooks   and  "spaces,   was  pretty wellr paralleled in,most  of the other centres. The board  got busy and assessed the picture, and decidted; to present a  bylaw to ratepayers to authorize a loan  of funds to enable  a building program to relieve  the situation.   Some opposition  developed, on the grounds that  . the increase iri taxation could  not be afforded, and that the  added   room  was not needed  . anyway , as school attendance  would   in   all   likelihood,  de-  creaseT  I talked with several of the  trustees, and they all seemed  to hold a very opposite opinion  feeling that rather than the accommodation not likely to be  needed, the program w:as in  fact too lirnitect, and that still  further building would be required in the very near future.  Hpwever, they thought it; wise  to try, for the time being, to  get enough to coyer immediate  needs.   ���-.,; .       '   ' yy  The bylaw Twas presented,  approved by a majoritybf rate-'"  payers, challenged- in; court, by  the opposition, thrown.out on  a technicality, again presented,  in amended:. form ,arid!:'agairi  passed. The building program  was immediately carried forward, including locally, among  other things, a first class Junior-Senior Pligh School build-  ���ing,  ���   ,  Events have since proven the  correctness of the estimate of  thpse trustees who felt the program iriactequate. Another  building program has had to  be. inaugurated, and a further  bylaw approved (this time with  less opposition) and further  class-rooms provided.     .

An up-to-the-minute report of  Ked Cross, relief operation in  Hungary was outlined by two  delegates of the International  Committee of the Red Cross  during conferences with Canadian Red Cross officials in  Toronto. E.W. Meyer and William Michel,  both  of  Geneva,  reviewed   the   relief   program  which  had  been   in  operation  since November 11. They staled  relief supplies  valued   at  over $6,000^000 had been sent  into Hungary for   distribution  (among victims of the uprisings.  At first,  in November,   Mr.  Meyer   said   relief   operations  did not move as quickly as had  been   anticipated  because   the  Ked Cross was desirous that its  cud should be given to the most  deserving cases. After a registration of victms, the relief operation was readily organized.  Mr. Meyer said clothing distribution had been impaired by  the large volume of used clothing that had been rushed from  Austria which had to be sorted.  (He commended the  Canadian  Red Cross for its policy of distributing only new clothing to  disaster victims. He added this  policy greatly aids relief operations and is most important  from a morale standpont. T  The two men mentioned there  are 40 Swiss representatives of  ,the International Committee of  the Red Cross supervising the  distribution of relief supplies in  Hungary.   At  the  start,   dried  milk was distributed to infants;  nursing and expectant mothers.  Later a system of daily meals:  was provided   for school  children. | Eventually, food parcels  for 150,000 people were distributed   every   fortnight.    Over  20,000 of these parcels are being packed every day in Budapest from supplies furnished by  ���over 40 national Red Cro&s Societies   and   government   agencies.  Mi*. Michel stated this "type  of aid will be required until  July when the first crops will  be harvested.. He expects 750.-  000 food parcels will be requir-  led during this emergency per-1  iod. A shortage of coal has seriously affected* the operation of  hospitals.

Three displays of work  done in the district were  shown by PTA members.  A h'andisome rug hooked in  wool of warm colours was displayed by Mrs. Shupe, its maker. She told the gathering  about the method and mater- '.���  ials used and demonstrated the  . hooking .technique. i  Mrs. f Sheila Danroth brought  a display of several crafts  done by her mother, Mrs.  Reeves. Beautiful examples of  weaving were 'shown andl sani1  pies of her spinning of all  sorts of wools, from sheep, dog,  cat and even from bear cubs  andl musk-oxen: Mrs.YDanroth,  also read an interesting newspaper' account on the history  of her mother's craftg.
