Improvement District  following the highly successful  plebiscite on Dec, 12. On that  date landowners approved by an  87% majority, the ,formation of  the new district.  During the past month sthe organizing committee has'submitted a plan to Victoria for repre-  . sentation   in' the_ district.* This  plan recommends "that the  area  between Port Mellon and Egmont  be divided into four zones with  a total of seven trustees to, be  divided among  the zones on  a,  basis  of  population. In  general  lepresentation is based on   one  trustee for every 1,200 population  Zone   one   comprises the  area  between  Port Mellon   and  Gibsons..,and is  represented bv one  trustee.

Cemetery  desecrated  Recent visitors to Elphinstone  Cemetery up the hill from the  North Road discovered that vandals have been there holding a  drinking party and desecrating  the graves.  Seeking to Vbufld a fire they  tore down framework on a gate,  removed wreaths front graves  and created a general mess inside the cemetery grounds. Evidences of drinking were visible  in the form of broken bottles  and one bottle left with some  wine remaining .in it. RCMP  have been notified and are investigating. -   ?  Evidence that graves had been  approached  was  found  in   the  fixe' which had  partially  burned.

HOSPITAL DONATION  The Catholic Women's Leagues  fol Sechelt and Gibsons have donated $30 to the. Hospital Improvement District committee  PUC rules  on church  cemetery  The decision concerning the  application of the United .Church  at Gibsons last December involving a cemetery on the church  property was handed down by  the Public Utilities Commission  on January 24. A copy of it was  sent the Coast News by H. W.  Mellish, secretary of the com- '  mission. The PUC dismissed the  application of the church and  explained its reasons for so doing as follows:  The Public Utilities Commission may, with the approval Qi  the Lieutenant-Governor in Coun  cil, make regulations "respecting the administration, use, control, and disposition of cemeteries in which no further burials are to be made, and respecting the administration and use  of the income from care funds  established with respect thereto,  and respecting the exhumation^ >  disinterment, and reinterment of  remains therein" (Section 3 (2>  (g) of the "Cemeteries Act").  It was not established, however, that no further burials are  to be made in this cemetery,  and this point 'could hardly be*  established without the consent  of  those  entitled  to  be  buried  there.  In making a regulation under  the "Cemeteries Act" Section S;  (2)(g) the Public Utilities Commission did not consider that it  should use its powers merely in.  order to enable the ,owner of a;  cemetery to. sell it-.in-order to'  raise money for his own purposes.   The   Commission is   of   the  opinion that''-'some consideration'  involving    the     public    interest-  should be advanced in; iustifi cation of the regulation; The United Church in Gibsons may pos-:  sibly hold the cemetery land as:  a trustee and the PubUe ^Utilities  -���t��n��^io��;7d����s^  is competent t* set -aside-a trust ���  or to determine as?a question; of /  law; whether certahr^puments-,  suffice -������to..;-cre1ate^a^,t^^ ;  . ..For>;the^o^goi^  '-������ CbmlmissioftS^  appUcatiori^of-the Uxute^^hurch  at Gibsons: In so doing, "however, the Public Utilities Commission does not wish to prevent  the renewal of the application in  the future if it can be justified.  To justify such an application  it would be  necessary to show:  That   no   further hurials   are ���-  to be made in the cemetery.  That  the  owner  acquired   the'  land   as   beneficial   owner   and  not  as   trustee  or  that . he  has  been relieved of any trust  obli-"  gatidns   by  the   consent of  the  beneficiaries.  That the property will be dis- .  posed of in : a way conducive to  the public interest.  That the reasonable wishoii of  the. relatives of the persons  whose remains have been buried  in the, cemetery have received:  due consideration.       ;  Signed by H. F. Angus, chairman; P. E.

Y  The Public Utilities Commission states, in its .decision to  deny sale of this property* that  it had considered public interest  would be best served through retention of .this site. We should  like at this time to reaffirm our  wish that this property become  a park site held in trust for public use by the Province of Brit'  ish  Columbia.  JOHN GLASSFORD-  Regarding the liquor question  as it concerns Indians as a discriminatory law, the Native Brotherhood of British Columbia at  its convention in Vancouver decided to get all bands to sign a  petition dealing with section 95 .  of the Indian Act covering liquor  laws, so that eventually a plebiscite could be called to decide  the issue. "    ���.''���; '*'  ^This was reported to Sechelt  Indian Band Sunday by Clarence  Joe who was the band's delegate  to the meeting. He also said some -  of the bands have already, taken  the heeded action including the  Sechelt Band. ,  A particularly good meeting,  he said, was held with the^ B.C.  Regional, supervisor in the ��� Indian Health Service, Dr.;* w!. S.  Barkleyii; The   doctor  explained  the policy of the Indian Affairs  department as regards the  health of Indians. Some of the  policies in the opinion of the  meeting,  were   not satisfactory.  The meeting took up educational matters with A. V. Par-  minter, regional .supervisor for  Indian schools. The meeting decided it would, ask that the allowance granted pupils away  frorii home be raised from $2 to  $3 per day.; This would affect  high school and university pupils  The Economic Development  Fund covering assistance for  Indians was- discussed with Mr.  F. E. Anfield, Indian' Commissioner for B.C. It was suggested  to "him that as one-quarter of  the Indian population, in Canada  is in B.C., one-quajrler of the  fund should be alloted to the In  dians of' this province.'  At the end of the five-day session a committee was appointed  to draft a brief which would be  submitted to the joint parliamentary committee now set up in  Ottawa to study Indian problems  across Canada. Those named to  this committee were Robert  Clifton, Charles Peters, Clarence Joe, Guy Williams, president of the Native Brotherhood,  and P. R. Kelly, the Brotherhood's legislative chairman who  will submit the brief and give  evidence supporting it sometime  in March.  Outside of the report by Clarence Joe on the Brotherhood  meeting the Sechelt Band council discussed a blanket insurance  coverage for all Indian homes  in Sechelt. A survey, will be  made to see if it is possible.  St Hilda's holds  annual meeting  The    annual    meeting    of   St.  Hilda's Anglican  church  congregation in Sechelt elected James  Dunn as synod delegate, with T.  Jvan Smith as alternate. Francis  Stone will be vicar's warden and  Mr.  Smith, p.eoole's warden. He  will also be temporary treasur- >  er. Secretary will be Mrs. W. L.  Billingsley.  Corp.  P.  B.

The annual meeting and election of officers followed a pot  luck supper when more than 65  persons sat down. ; Young folk  had their own table; presided!  over by junior members of the  choir.  The meeting decided to allow  use of the hall< for mee'-'-igs of  the new St. Mary's Hospital  auxiliary, yet to be formed.

One of the best  One look at the names of the executive of Gibsons and District  Board of Trade should convince most people it is one of the best the  hoard has presented for some time.  The new president is John Harvey. True, he is an undertaker  but is by ho means anything other than a live wire. His vice-president;  is Charles Mandelkau, of Shell Service Station, an active Kinsman ���  and quite alert to the needs of this area.  Executive members include individuals who are active daily at  their vocations with one exception unless being retired is a vocation.  On the Sunshine Coast being retired is meaningless because it involves considerable work and Mrs. J. P. Stewart, retired and a former president of the Board of Trade is back on the executive. She  will make her presence known. Even without Board of Trade work  she has other public matters to keep her mind active.  There is a B.C. Electric man, a motel operator, three fishermen,  chairman of Gibsons village council, service station proprietor, Five-  Ten-Fifteen Cent store owner and a transport operator, all members  of the executive.  Under Walt Nygren, president during the last two years the Board  of Trade made considerable progress. John Harvey will riot be falling behind Walt's pace. Maybe he will spurt ahead, a little. Even if  he equals Walt Nygren's two years they will be good years. So to the  new executive of Gibsons and District Board of Trade/hop to it.  The field is yours. Community enterprise will benefit from your activities. The executive and members must keep in mind that the  president is not the Board of Trade. The membership is the Board of  Trade.  Magic in helping others  Magic wands are generally known for the good works they accomplish. Such being the case there are some white canes also in  the magic wand class. They do their good work by helping guide the  blind. As the magic wand conjures up the wishes, of its wielder so  does the white cane of the blind.  Without the white cane the blind would have more difficulty in  getting about. White canes exist to help those'that need such assistance. Next week, "starting SOfidaywill be CNIB White Cane canvass  week. Everyone can wield'a magic wand for the CNIB in the form  of dollar bills, to help the. blind have a safer and more full life.  Thank you Mr. Dawson  A phone call out of the blue Thursday night last week causr  ed ye editor to spring to the radio and turn it on to CBU where Will  Dawson, author, was making some remarks about the editor and  the Coast News.  Mr. Dawson, who has written a book on yachting along the B.C.  coastline, was describing his visit to the Coast News office in quite a  few kind words. Actually he had come to see A. J. C, one of the  contributors to the Coast News. A. J. C. as most people know is A.  J. Charman who writes about the goings on in the animal world, usually on his fine acreage off Pratt road.  Mr. Dawson's remarks about Mr. Charman might not have  reached his ears but if they did not, Mr. Charman can rest assured  Mr. Dawson was highly appreciative of his chat with him..On behalf  if Mr. Charman and the Coast News this editorial expresses thanks  to Mr. Dawson for taking time out to give Mr. Charman, the Coast  News and this area some interesting publicity.

James Douglas, when he was  appointed Governor of Vancouver Island in 1850, iminediate-  ly revealed a concern for and  an interest in the natives of  that area. After 1858/when he  became also governor of the  Crown Colony of British Co-  lumia, applied ibis -principles  in ordinances covering '..'this  area also. ' :4::-4''.-:'4:::  On March 5, 1861, the governor officially . directed the  chief commissioner of ;. lands  and works to "take measures  as soon as practicable for marking out distinctly -the Indian  Reserves throughout the colony." He added that "the extent of the Indian Reserves to  be defined" was to be "as they  may - severally be pointed out  by the natives themselves,'' In"  earlier proclamations" of 1850,  1851, and 1852 Douglas had  made mention of the fact that  payment be made for certain  portions of land surrendered by  the- natives on Vancouver Isr  land, but succeeding legislation  failed . to carry this consideration into effect.  It is on the basis of these  early agreements that the Native Brotherhood ��� 100 years  later protested' against participation in British Columbia's  centennial celebrations. It must  be borne in mind that all;  agreements concerning the  formation of reservations were -  in   the   nature  of  treaties  be  tween Her Majesty'si Government and each separate individual tribe of the colony,' and,  after 1871,- between the government of the province of British) Columbia and these separate individual tribes, just as-  though two sovereign powers  might enter into compacts.  In the report made on Aug.  17, 1875, by the late Mr. Justice Wolke, the attorney-general, he described the tracts,  set aside, before the union; for*  .Indians "as the joint and common property of the several  tribes, toeing intended for their  .exclusive use and benefit, and  especially as a provision for  the aged, fchie helpless, and the  infirm." The treaty bringing  the Sechelt Reserves into effect  had been sighed in 1873 between the government of British Columbia and the August  and Julian families.  These treaties left the Sechelt  Indians a comparatively large  tract at Sechelt, or Chateleech,  as the village itself is known,  extending into what is now  Selma Park, and the Squamishi  Indians a much larger series of  tracts up the Squamish River.  The Sechelts had in addition  smaller tracts at the mouth of  Chapman Creek, at Garden  Bay, and in Snake Bay and  Narrows Arm in Sechelt Inlet.  The Squamish tribe had smaller reserves at Gibsons (Chek-  Welp) at the mouth of Grantham's Creek, on Shelter Islands! andjn the small bay between   Port   Mellon . and Hill-.  side..

To their credit the Foundation  - believes, more and more young  people seem to be working the  question out for themselves.  They are studying and weighing the facts before becoming  too involved with drinking customs or placing too much belief  in what their friends and others  are doing, or saying about it.  The Foundation believes this  is largely attributable to the  near-dramatic upsurge in public  concern over alcohol problems,  the treatment of alcoholism as  an illness like, any other,., and  the growing emphasis on preventive education in Canada today.  As a further aid to understanding, a new pamphlet "Dear Son,  If You Must Drink," in the form  of an open letter to teenagers, is  available free of charge by writing to the Alcoholism Founda-.  tin, 1690 West Broadway, Vancouver 9, B.C. Parents will find  the pamphlet a useful guide in  helping their children resolve  this question for themselves.  as market gardening is concerned the use of glass is the best  '^prospect in sight. .... ���  The district is rich in sites  1 with a southern slope and shelter from the north, which can  be provided if lacking ��� sites as  near ideal as can be found in  this province, and with every  book on the subject stressing the  importance of a favorable site...

This seems to,  me to be the result, in great  part, of adjustability of varying  weather, the power of protection by closing up against our  typically cool nights, particularly in the early part of the growing season, and on cool days too,  when outside plants merely  await better times.

Of  these 57 came from teachers  groups, 34 from PTAs and 32  from school trustees. The remainder, about two-thirds of the  total presented came from individuals and religious, professional and political groups as  well as others. The public response  was tremendous.  But the commission read more  than briefs. They listened to the  citizenry in public hearings,  made school visits, conducted  group discussions, did their own  research into information supplied them by many agencies,  met with members of commissions doing the same work concurrently in other provinces, and  read special reports of education in other countries.       -  In this and" articles to follow,  the  (Chant,   commission, report'-;  and our own Sechelt brief to that  FROM THE  Printed  MIGRATORY  BIRDS  Something new in the way  of bird migrations has developed. It may be worth a little attention by followers of Jack  Miner.  This is a purely local affair,  as far as early reports can determine, though there is ho reason to think it might not be  going on in many big cities  other than Montreal, locale of  this phenomenon. It has to do  with the pigeons in beautiful  Dominion Square. Seems that  one of the largest office buildings in the neighborhood, spurred by its cleaning crew, had  taken a stand against the  pigeons, and had called in the  de-birding experts. * The cure  was a sticky substance spread  on the roof-top which caused  the pigeons foot distress. In no  time they left the building.  But the park was too good  to abandon. Hoboes, tourists  and noon-time resters were  good providers to the birds  and not lighty lost. The pigeons  simply moved en masse to the  roof, window-sills and ledges  of an hotel across the park.  Of course the hotel management soon discovered the same  cure to the problem. Then it  was the turn of a swanky steak  house. Then the haberdashery  next door, then another clothier's building. One by one the  birds got moved along by tacky  tactics, always on the go but  never willing to quit the district.  The story has, temporarily at  least, a happy ending. It seems  that the weather eventually  subdues the effectiveness of the  sticky substance and the pigeons can again return to a  former roost after the rain,  wind, and sun have done their  jobs. Result is the birds have  worked out a handy, circuit,  and until the operators of all  the buildings catch on and do  all the roofs at the same time,  a roost near the park can be  developed on a transient basis.  As a matter of fact the managers of the various establishments around the nark are  really bird-lovers at heart and  as long as each only has to  take a turn at being host for  a month or so eacih. vear. the  situation Is supportable. So the  new rrvfary migration is set up  and a.ll it means is an addition-  pi item on the co��?t account  r>-*oh vear ������ "overhead overhead."  commission will be reviewed.  This article will deal with the  aims of education in B.C., school  enrolments, boards of school  trustees, and the' supervision of  school; districts.  .  ?  The commission observes that  137 courses are offered in the  program of studies for secondary schools in B.C. No indication is given in the aims of education printed in departmental  bulletins as to the reason for this  wide selection among which  there are 14 courses in home ec-  onohiics, 10 in mathematics, 16  in commerce- and 7 in science.  Nor does the department indi-  the relative iriiportance of these  courses:  With this and other considerations in rnind the commission  recommends that the primary  aim of education in B.C. should  bs: the promoting of intellectual  development throughout the  school program. The report recognizes that home, church and  other agencies have their parts  in the intellectual .development  of the child, each, performing a  distinctive task.. The school, con->  sequently,; should attempt no  further religious instruction than  present - regulations.; require.  The commission anong. other  ;: observations. >,. showe J surprise  thai the churches hnve not made  more use of the B:ble literature  courses offered as a free option  by the correspondence division ���  of the department of education  where the student not only studies the bible but can gain  school credits for his  effort.  Based on this aim of intellectual development school subjects  are grouped by the commission  according to the enphasis each  group should receive. Most important group is that of English  and mathematics (word and  number . subjects j, followed by  social studies/science, and foreign languages, with physical education, home economics, industrial arts, art, drama, music,  commerce in the least important group of all.  Frorii a view of B.C.'s educational philosophy, the commission turned to school enrolments.  Their forecast is almost half a  million school students within 15  years time ��� an increase of  two thirds of the present enrolment. This great increase will  be more noticeable in the high  schools than in the elementary  where a decrease is expected.  With this in mind as well as for  other considerations such as the  increasingly observable immaturity of pupils presently entering grade seven, the.. commission  recommends grade 7 be returned to the elementary school level. The report quotes the Sechelt  brief at this point, "We recommend grades 7 and 8 be made  part of the elementary school."  Feeling that "long term planning with regard to the public  schools system is not being carried out to the extent that is required in the light of modern  world conditions" the commission next recommends the establishment of a board or commission to assess changing needs  and propose plans in keeping  with such needs. Their justification of this recommendation lies  in the widespread approval of  and response to the commission  and its work. To be noted is the  composition of this board ��� laymen ,   riot educationists.  Passing from matters pertaining to pupils to those concerning  boards, of school trustees and  superintendants the commission  observed a growing indifference  on the part of the public not  only to holding office but also  to voting for those qualified and  willing to do so. A study of  school   elections   is,   therefore,  (Continued on Page 3) Coast  News,  Feb.  2, 1981.       3  Chant Report  (Continued   from Page 2)  recommended to find measures  that willi- revive public interest.  Because the commission often  heard the view that too many restrictions were placed upon  school trustees by the department of education, and that disagreements between trustees and  department resulted from lack  of close communication between  them, t^e commissionr also recommends regular, bulletins of  inforniatiOn be sent the trustees  individually by the department,  and that regular meetings < be  held between departmental -�� officials and executive members  of the provincial trustees association.

When a district  employs as least 75 teachers, it  should be entitled to a superintendent of its own, the report  recommends, Of interest to Sechelt school district is the fact  that there are over 60 teachers  employed in the 'district now  and there is evidence the school  population and teacher; numbers  will continue to, increase.-^.

Young  Macleod is the first Boy Scout  on the Sechelt Peninsula to win  this honor. It is recognized as  quite an achievement as not too  many .of these badges have been  earned by Scouts .elsewhere.

Four Ambulanceman proficiency badges have been awarded to  scouts in the troop and seven  other boys are awaiting presentation of the same badges. The  earning of these badges entails  an extensive study  of first aid.  Bruno Dombroski has been appointed assistant scoutmaster of  the troop and Scoutmaster Payne  said .Mr. Dombroski's many  years of scouting experience has  added greatly to the efficiency  of the troop.  By   TONY  GARGRAVE,  M.L.A.  possibly the farmers have relied  too much on government help in  the past, and that now the farmers were beginning to belie%e  more in self help. Of course,  there is no one, or easy solution,  to the marketing of farm produce, but with the help of government legislation there are  many things that the farmers  can do for themselves, said Mr.  Walls.^.., ,.-/<V:-;--'-v''  In  B.C. , we have* a- Natural  Products  Marketing  Act^ which  allows, farmers^in certain areas,  by. democratic vote   toi set up  marketing' boards to-proyide for  -the" planned; land .orderly marketing of TOeir products.  However,  the farmers of the province have  not taken too much: advantage of  this legislation which already exists- There are three marketing  agencies in the province at present   They  are the Tree  Fruits  organization   in . the   Okanagan,  the   B.C:   Vegetable   Marketing  Board  and   the  Interior . Vegetable   Marketing Board.   Supervising  the  activities   of   these  boards   which   the   farmers  set  up themselves is the Provincial  Marketing   Board which   is  responsible for overseeing the administration of the Act and drawing up any'necessary regulations  Tfi 3Ji 5j*  Mr. Walls- was of the opinion  that the farmers should be taking more advantage of - this  method of getting prbduce to  market in an orderly manne r  and gave as ah example, the  efforts of the Western Poultry  Federation, to organize more effectively the sale of eggs in the  Fraser Valley. It is generally  recogriized that you have to.have  2,000 hens to make a living today in the poultry industry. Jt  was suggested that poultry, producers who have 500 or more  hens -set up-; an.egg= marketing  board to produce- moire Uniform  grading, to combat foreign competition, and prevent undue seasonal fluctuations in price.;  Those egg producers which  have less than 500' hens would  not need to be a member of the  egg marketing board and would  be able to ship their small quantities of eggs to market free of  any regulation .The marketing  board would not control price  because the price of farm products in British Columbia is governed in the main by the price  of imported products from other  parts of Canada or other parts  or the world.      ���  Mr. Walls went on to tell the  caucus about other agricultural  problems such as the dumping  here of unwanted produce from  California, crop insurance, drainage - and irrigation, marketing  research, land expropriation,  school taxes' and compulsory  auto insurance.  We were surprised that the  fanners . of B.C. ���=. are now advocating compulsory government  auto insurance, but I can only  assume that; they feel it is more  sensible and less costly.

During severe winters,  when thick snow covers all accessible fodder, the- caribou are.  reduced to eating the bark off;  trees and many" of them starve.  The wild life service of the  Department" of Northern Affairs  in Ottawa wants to protect the  caribou from extinction by dropping bales of hay from aircraft  to where   food  is  most scarce.  Spartan Air Services, which  has surveyed more than 300,000  square miles of forest all over  Canada, has developed methods  of assessing with amazing accuracy soil and vegetation characteristics. Analysing its aerial  maps, Spartan tells the wild life  service exactly where vegetation:  conditions require additional fodder for the  animals.  Thus the wild animals, victims,  of our technical civilization,; are  saved by the same technology ���  which enables a camera" flpwn  at. 10,000 feet to spot.details in- .  visible to the man on the ground.  letters     For parents only  By  Nancy Cleaver  to editor  Firemen's Ball & Box Social  COMMUNITY HALL, MADEIRA PARK  Sat., Feb. 11 - 9 p.m.  REFRESHMENTS  Sponsored by Pender Harbour Volunteer Firemen  Admission: Ladies 1 box lunch for two or $1.50; gents $1.50  PRIZE FOR BEST DECORATED BOX LUNCH  Advance tickets available from members of the Fire Dept.

The children get points if  they have certain foods for  their breakfast. This seems liks  a mean thing to me. Children  are fed what their mothers seo  fit to give them and are. em-  barrasoad through no fault of  their own. They also get a  stomach ache if ��� they force  themselves to eat when they  have one eye on the clock. .  ��� Teachers do not know what  ���the conditions are in the home.

VISION   PROGRAM  A "vision team" from the  B.C. Optometric Association,  working with the B.C. Federation of fish and Game Clubs,  recently screened 36 junior  members of the Port Coquitlam  Hunting and Fishing Club. The  screening determines a youngster's visual acuity, field of  vision, degree of color blind  ness. and eye co-ordination. The  dominant eye and sighting eye  are also compeared. Game clubs  wishing to participate in the  program are requested to contact Mr. Meade at 470 Granville St., Vancouver.  CHILD'S VISION  IS PRICELESS  According to the records of  the Canadian National Institute  for 'the' Blind," about one. per-,  son in every eight hundred of  our total population, has poor  enough vision to be * considered  blind.  The care of a child's eyes is  of great concern to parents.  Your son's ,or daughter's vision  is priceless. Are, you guarding  this gift?

BASEMENTS PREFERRED  Home builders note a :trend .-.  back to the house with a basement. Families. want .more  work and play space and the  ���most economical way to provide it is by building a basement.  ���. With land costs soaring, a  house with a basement sacrifices less lot area, allowing extra space for lawns, fowers and  outdoor living. Concrete block  is a favored basement building  material. It is economical,  easily available, and quick and  easy to work with.  The  mills  of Canada make  pulp and paper of all kinds.

Copyrighted  Occasionally a child's sight  is tocreatened;'!by an unexpected  tragic accident when the sharp  point of a pencil, a pen, a stick,  a penknife or scissors enters  the eye. Blunt scissors and no  toys with sharp edges are essential safety-first' rules in a  home  with little   children.  Each year a few children  have their eyes hurt in fireworks accidents. This kind of  , carelessness ��� on the part of  adults in charge '. of minors is  almost  inexcusable.

If from the" side  .some  glare  may  still  be  present/During periods   of rapid  growth a child's eyes need projection    from   strain   or being  over-taxed.  ���-        ��� #       #       #   ,  But during ordinary health,  investigation has shown that a  child's sight is often being  slowly but surely harmed by  bad haibits such as bending or  stooping, or lying in a prone  position, with the eyes much,  too close to the book or object  attracting attention. Concentrating for longer than half an'  hour, without resting the eyes  and working or playing in a  poor light are.' also disastrous  to good eyesight.  Parents who realize that a  child suffers discomfort, headaches, slow learning, unhappi  ness and possibly a permanent  handicap if eyes are not properly protected from strain will  do all they can to save their  children's eyesight. Insist on  proper posture and correct  lighting.  Even little, tots should not  form the habit of keeping their  eyes fixed at a distance closer  than a foot. A longer distance  about 17 inches, between the  eyes and the book should be  observed by older children.  A child should form the habit  in early years of sitting upright in a small properly designed chair when he wants to  read.   Because   of  faulty pos  ture, short sightedness (myopia)  increases from a small percent  of children who enter kindergarten at. five years to - about  30 percent of boys and girls  starting high school.

TINTING and STYLING  Ph. 866-2409  SECHELT HIGHWAY  Gibsons Village  FORESTS HELP WATERSHEDS  Forests build up a thick layer  of decayed leaves, twigs, etc.,  under which there is a dense  mat of fine roots anchoring trees  shrubs and herbs. The rain must  first saturate the crown foliage,  then the understory foliage, and  finally the thick mat of humus.  All this retards run-off so that  erosion is inhibited and a steady  supply of clear, filtered water  is fed into the forest streams.  Forest trees consume huge  quantities of water through their  roots. This ��� also, reduces the  amount of water which would  otherwise  run   off  too   quickly.  PACIFIC WINGS LTD.
