NEWMAN)  According to Hypo (hypothetical woman) the easiest  thing in the world, besides  taking up a hobby, is laying it  ��� down. Slhe has been doing it  for years'. It is true that she  doesn't know anything about  anything, but look at the fun  she has had.  In her own defence she reasons thus; "look what an intelligent listener I can' be; A  bowing acquaintance with a  number of arts and crafts takes  from the eye that expression  of utter bewilderment, that impression of complete stupidity  that appears when one finds  oneself in conversation with an  impassioned artist, musician or  craftsman who becomes swept  away by an eloquent discourse  on his pet subject."  Her first course was by correspondence and had to do  with cartooning, ah item that  cost .her dad enough money to  feed a family for months, and  iri wfhich she lost interest; almost immediately, the more recent one on show-card writing  'being better suited to her talents. ';.'  Since there is -little use for  show cards ; in a blackberry  jungle- arid having heard that  travel is broadening, she entrained for California. ; First  however she was called upon  to use her make-up kit oh the  body of a neighbor just1 '.'deceased, (in ..those olden .days.  things were ^primitive indeed)  and thought "fleetingly about a-  course in undertaking. Instead  ���she made some floral, pieces  with the aid of some kindling,  wire arid -the garden's output  of" blooriis, and, pleased with  her work, glanced through the  paper to see if any such courses  as floral decorations were listed. Fortunately,;: there- were ~  none. '���-'���     i ������'������������ .*}���.���' ���  *    *    *  In    California   there   was: a  half   finished,  business   course.  that was interrupted, by a pas- .  sing earthquake which destroyed." all her.books arid made a  sharriibles  of, the   school build-  *.way, Hypo felt she could turn  'her attention to art. Because  she hadn't the nerve to enroll  by    herself    she    inveigled   a  ��� friend to accompany her. They  -both enjoyed "the classes and  made dozens of plaster" plates  which  they  painted "and   she!--  ���laked and hung on the wall.  The motif was Mexican and  Hypo put into effect some  original see n"e s respendent  with dancing burros arid big-  hatted Mexicans conducting  cock fights. For the latter Hypo  had to crouch on the bedroorh  floor before a full-length mirror assuming the position of  the handlers and bettors while  simultaneously    sketching   the  found that the only course  open to her on her free night  was dramatics and this she  turned down feeling it to b-3  entirely out of her line.( ,As it  turned 'out it was probably the  one course she should have  taken. '  And. then quite suddenly,  Hypo returned to her native  land arid back to the blackberry patch which she had left  ten years before.  Here she found, as in most  small settlements, there are retired teachers and craftsmen:.  , There are always those who.  .can impart information if one  looks far enough. They usually  ,can   be   penauaded  to  give   a  correct  stance. For   some  rea-' "course or collect   a group  to-  The Chant report  The report by the Chant Royal Commission on Education and the  orief presented to the commission by a local,committee on.education contain a general similarity which shows, if one regards the  Chant report as being the proper medicine for present educational  troubles, the local committee has realized some of the "factors in-  tolved. ;'-"'���'  The idea of kindergartens as favored by the'Chant report was  iiso favored 'by^the-locals committee. The Chant report urges: grade  seven be returned" to elementary schools. The local committee favored seven and eight back in elementary schools. :  .The local committee urged more drill in arithmetic:fundamentals and a more extensive program of literature which is covered by  the Chant report asking that more emphasis^\be put on basic subjects such as English and mathematics;   w->;  ,  The idea of expanding a two-channel,system (university program  and general program for those,.not desiring{to;go beyond high.school)     ing. 'This  was "followed by  a  as suggested by the local coftmuftee'^foundlliupport in the'Cliant re----" ****M   ""-^  i��   ���;n;���^���    r*  jpaort which urges- establishment of vocational schools to offer the  third outlet for a specific type of education.  ���There were other points of.similarity between the local and the  Chant report but it is not necessary to name them all to show the  local committee's thinking, based on what the Chant report reveals  was not too out of line with general thinking on the subject of what  could be done about bettering the educational system.  It should be obvious that other briefs presented the commission  jnust have touched on the same subjects, therefore it must be taken  for granted that local thinking is not out of line with thinking elsewhere.  There are those people who go along with.the idea of a longer  jchool day generally but there are some who do not like the idea of  a; longer school day plus plenty of homework. The average adult prefers to leave his work at the place where he is employed after putting  in a full day. If school pupils have a fairly full day there should be  no need for homework. Naturally those pupils who need some pushing  to get by should be encouraged to use their books at home for studies.  "Shere are those with other ideas on homework, who would perhaps  3j.ve more. They are entitled to their opinion. One could surmise that .  an eduational system could be devised which would do away with  framework and the carting of numerous books to and from school  ��ach day.  One train of comment maintains the Chant, report" is conservative. This is of course an opinion but the results of a conservative  Hype of education.versus a progressive type should be considered. It  ��ould be that today's conservativism in education is the right path  to travel because the progressive education based on the present  situation does not have too strong a support in any community. Labels are often misleading. We might progress farther with a conservative education system.  Members of the local committee which deserves credit for the  Tearfc they did in view of the findings of the Chant commission were  these citizens of Sechelt School District: Mrs. Cloe Day, commercial  teacher; Mrs. Iris Smith, Home Ec. teacher; Mr. Robert Burns,  municipal clerk; Mrs. N. R. McKibbin, parent; Mr. E.N. Henniker,  "Bank manager; Mrs. R. F. Donley, school board member; Mrs.  Frances L. Fleming, teacher; Mrs. B. Rankin, girls' counsellor; Mr.  it. R. Peterson, teacher; Mrs. Margaret Slater, teacher; Mrs. Grace  Wiren, elementary teachers consultant, and Mr. W. S. Potter, principal, Elphinstone High School.  -f* night course, in millinery. It  took only two lessons to convince her, and the teacher, that  as a milliner she might make  an' excellent dressmaker. Her  decision to learn . dressmaking  came as" a result of her loathing the business of sewing,  even to the plainest garriient.  She reasoned that if she learned to do it the right way, arid  the professional way,' it would  be much easier and then she  might come to love making her  own clothes. She would save  hundreds, of dollars and at the  same time be the best, dressed  girl in town. This did not come  to pass, however, as she left  town after the fifth lesson, but  her sample book with its; pages  of bound button - holes, plackets and. .smocking lie in a  ���trunk and she may go back to  sewing anytime she wishes.  With practical accomplishments, stenography, millinery  and   dressmaking   out   of  the  son or other, people wanted  them and Hypo sold all but  four which she kept as souvenirs and which now hang somewhere in itoe dusty reaches of  the attic.  ���',���-���',''.*'   '���'.'.*���'.���.���   *.'"'��������� ���-'?*'   '"': ;  About this same time she decided to take up piano lessons  again, and she also enrolled in  a night school typing class, but  her back bothered her and she  gave up both. Instead she joined a class of Spanish guitar  players arid an art metal class.  Hypo found that the guitar  was so much Greek to her, and  the art metal class was so noisy  ��he "never once heard the instructor's yoice. She did turn  out a few nice ash trays and  two etched pewter plates be-  .fore going on to less noisy  fields. ���..  One  such  was bookkeeping,  but   in   two   months   she   still  could not differentiate between  debit and credit so went on to  join a class in German. There  she   discovered  tfoat  her   English   left   much  to   be  desired  and forthwith joined up for/ a  refresher-course in that subject.  ��� *     **-     v   ���-**'���    ��� ���  On "the" side   she took   some  other courses then, too;;iamong;  them color;       "  ���sium.' "Also  printing, clay modelling and  pistol shooting. As a result of  the former isibe made her Christmas cards in an- original design, the meaning of which was  anyone's guess and also some  name: plates for her books.  These showed two feet and the  pages of; an .open^bopk^^oyer ���  the edges of an easy". ���chair  while through an open door, in  a sink, stacks of. unwashed5  disibes were plainly- in' view.  (Hypo was nothing; if not serious-cm irided); In theipistol shooting field she qualified for the .  marksman medal and. once was  oyer joyed when, by some sort  of fluke, she outshot her husband on the - fifty yard slow  fire target. There was little call  for a pistol packing Hypo  though and stoe turned her at-  tention   to   other pursuits. She  gether for study. Quite frequently they are pleased to  keep their hand in and eager  to help others. One such group  which Hypo joined discussed,  with brutal thoroughness, such  books as Power of Mind, and  left her with the knowledge  that she was un-loved, insecure  and immature:  *    #    *  However her first real adventure into the realms of  learning took place in a summer camp for small children,  which she operated with, a  cousin. Hypo would do vthe  cooking and her cousin would  look after the kiddies. As her  cousin was a teacher her -job  was not too difficult, but Hypo  as a. weilder of can openers,  had. considerable, to learn. Fortunately there are government  bulletins, on child feeding.  Fortunately too she had once  availed herself: of:., the opportunity to attend cooking: classes at a gas company in the  south arid"that was a help also.  During the time she cooked  for the camp she also: took lessons on the Hawaiian guitar,  and'the cousin; a ready.- wit;  drew a cartoon of Hypo practicing, -the .song   "Drifting   and  Next ,on';'- the agenda was  "weaving. This "is a fascinating  hobby and onei'"1'; which'':r-'she  should"/like, to, pursue again.  There were several expert  weavers in the'district, one of  .wiibhi -experimented with 'her  own ? home-grown flax^ ;      ?-y.  Wiben a Players' Club started up, by some kind;-of hokus-  pokus,''Hypo ^found -herself assisting : at directing, -helping  with the business management,  and doing considerable acting.  She never found out how. or  why. She . had ��� T never acted in  her1 life: and   beyound. buying  upon by some, quaintly, as aa  authority. The club broke up  for want of members, many  having moved away, but she  lives in fear that it might break  forth again someday and she  will.'find herself quivering before the'footlights.  '"       ss��    *    sfc  She - approached ceramics  with an entirely different feeling. It seemed like sheer magic  to see 'bowls and vases shaping on the potter's wheel. One  cannot imagine the excitement  of opening the kiln and lifting  the pieces out one by one, exclaiming at the colors of the  different glazes, afraid to look,  perhaps, because'one piece may  have had a bubble and burst,  damaging surrounding pieces  as well.  While waiting for the pieces  to "cook" Hypo and the.others  studied occultism with "their  coffee and read Harry Price's  books -on'" Psychical Research  and dipped into various philosophies.

Carol Lane, Shell's  Women's Travel .Director-has  sorne suggestions that can help  you to solve-your winter parking'- problems:   j,. ...;.,; ;���;, J.;'/ :,.  If the car's not protected by  a building, make sure it's parked with, its back into the wind,  radiator grill facing away  fromit.   .',.  Cover the hood of the car  with an old blanket or strip of  canvas. Anchor it by catching  ends; between the hood and the  car's body.  Newspaper or cardboard over  the windshield and reari^hi- ,  dow^ .prevents^s^o^^rid^ ice "  from caking on the - glas^r rThe  windshield wipers should keep  the front window covers from  blowing away, or you can buy  a special vinyl plastic windshield cover: For the back win-  ddWi a little cellulose tape  should do the trick. During  these cold winter months, the  car's finish is going to take a  beating. Protect it by frequent  washings, then give the body  a r coat of car wax. Cover all  the chrome trimmings with a  light film of oil, arid retouch  rust, spots with.paint.  If you always park your car  close,, to the house, here's '.a-  trick . you may'-.'want to try:  Run an extension cord from  the house to your car. At the  end of the cord is an electric  light bulb which you rest on  the car's engine block near the  radiator. When you get up in  the morning^ plug Ithe'erid of  the cord into the house socket.  The heat from the bulb will  help tease cold weather starting.   ���':'���-.  Prepored by the Research Staff of  LNCYCLOPIDIA   CA-HAOIAHA  ��� -What   printer's apprentice became. Prime Minister?

From 1878 until 1891 he had been minister of  customs in Sir John A. Macdon-  ald's' government. When Sir John  Abbott became  prime  minister,  Bowell  was   appointed   to  the  cabinet   at   minister   of   militia  and   under  Abbott's  successor,  Sir John Thompson, he became  minister of trade and commerce.  On Thompson^ death in December, 1894, Bowell became prime  minister. After a difficult period  in  office,  he resigned in April,  1896,   to   be   followed   by   Sir  Charles Tupper.

In i950 John James Bowlen,  at one'time operator of the largest horse ranch in western Canada, succeeded John Campbell  Boweri, Baptist minister and Liberal politician, as Lieutenant-  Governor of Alberta. Bowen,  who served as a chaplain to the '  Canadian Expeditionary Force  during the First World War and  later sat as a Liberal member  in the Alberta Legislature, was  Lieutenant-Governor from 1S37  until 1950.^ He died in Edmonton  in 1957.

Ethelbert, Man., a village 38  miles northwest kof Dauphin on  the Canadian National Railway  line to Swan River, is said to  have been named after Ethel  Bertha, a daughter of Sir William Mackenzie, president of  the Canadian Northern Railway,  which built the present CNR Jine  in 1899. The first settlers ���from  Ontario, Manitoba, the United  States and central Europe - - arrived two years before the railway reached the site. One of the  early Ukranian settlements in  Manitoba was in the surrounding  rural municipality, where the  population is now 90 percent of  Ukranian origin. Ethelbert was  incorporated in 1951.  initions  for aches  An exact definition of three  conditions which may confuse  the layman ��� arthritis, neuritis  and bursitis, is given, in the current issue of Health Magazine,  official publication of the Health  League of Canada.  "Itis," states the article,  means inflammation; "Arth"  means joint; ''Neur" means  nerve; a "Bursa is a sort of soft  envelope filled with slimy matter like soft jelly, that is found  in spots that are apt to rub, as  at the elbow  and knee.  One finds that these terms are  very  badly misused!  Arthritis, then, means inflamr  mation of any joint. There are  four main kinds and about twenty rarer kinds. Osteoarthritis,  due to iwear and; ttfar, .is the  - commonest:*'*" '-v-'v'' '���'���':';    ������ ':'"-  Bursitis means an inflamed  bursa, and > may1 occur over the  knee-cap *(hoUsemaid's:-knee), el-  bow, or in the -shoulder, notably.  It is usually caused by injury,  friction,   or   unaccustomed   use.  Neuritis is an inflammation 'of  a nerve. It inay result in pain,  numbness,/orV paralysis in the  part supplied by that nerve.  Alcoholism -chemicals, such 'as  lead, and: certain infections, including diphtheria, are common  causes.

On/  Jan.'9 Liberals lead off in .Ottawa -with a three-day national  rally called by Lester Pearson.  The Conservatives plan to meet  in the spring and the C^CF.-  New Party will have its founding convention during the summer.  For the Liberals the January  rally will be one of the most  important in their history. Public opinion polls across the  country show, that the Liberal  Party is making, a comeback  while the Conservatives have  gone down. However to get  back.; into power the Liberals  will have to do much more  than rely on falling, public support for the Conservatives.  They will have to present the  voters with real alternatives  to tackle national problems.  inner  Eighty persons sat down to a  delicious turkey dinner at Glad  Tidings Tabernacle, Gibsons, on  Friday, Dec. 23.

More than 400 in  PNE Minor League  Every Saturday morning, dur-  iig the long, damp winter and  far into the spring, an army of  aoungsters from all over Great-  ear Vancouver and points as distant as Port Moody and Surrey,  oonverge on the Forum in the  eold pre-dawn hours, armed  with determination, enthusiasm  and little else.  They will be the 400 or more  members of the PNE Minor  Hockey Association, a self-sup^  porting, non-sponsored league oT  aopefuls ranging in age from  aight to 18.  The association was born in  the old Forum three years ago  without fanfare, flowers champagne or even congratulatory  gress notices.  It was conceived by PNE For-  om staff employees who not  only presided at its birth but  volunteered uncounted hours to  guide its faltering footsteps on  ha^d-me-down skates.  But now, with three full seasons under its precocious didy,  the Association is. a lusty infant  with an assured future and more  than $3,000 worth of spanking  aew equipment bought with funds  obtained through its own endeavours.  There are four leagues in the  Association; under 12 are Pee-  wees; Bantams under 14, Midgets  tinder 16 and Juveniles under 18.  Each league has a manager and  each team its coach and manager.  But undoubtedly the outstanding minutes of the practice ses  sions are when genuine players  from the Canucks hockey team  skate onto the ice to" coach the  youngsters in the 'finer points of  the game.  '/ It's quite a package deal when  you consider it. All a member  is asked to pay is $3 a season.  This ; registration fee is largely  invested in medical aid insurance. The funds for equipment  are raised through an annual  jamboree.  Every member of the association participates in this event.  And the bleachers are packed  with proud parents, relatives and  friends who willingly part with  a buck or two to see junior perform.  The association , has never  turned a boy away. His ability  eagerness and need to do so is  all-important.  The Forum staff receive no  money, scant publicity and fleeting recognition for the vital part  they play in maintaining the association. .  President Eric Dickinson, vice-  president Mario Caravetta, secretary Mrs. Myra Richards,  treasurer Pete Kerr; engineers  Ron Comber and Herb Mills and  icemen Jerry Taylor, Percy  Jackson and Joe Cobb find their  reward in the knowledge that  they are making a major contribution to kids of today who  could be stars of tomorrow. And  when you pause to think about  it, is there a more worthwhile,  purpose, a greater objective or  a finer reward?  TNS  ' House of Commons now  has three vacancies following  resignation of maverick J. C.  Van Home, 39,. fiery Conservative! MP frona New  ���Brunswick. Mr. Vari Home,  who endorsed' Liberals in  !New Brunswick election, said  resignation was due to pressure of his business affairs  and not because of 'disagreement with Conservative  Gove'rnanent.  By A. J.  C.  Of all -my woodland neighbors  the varying hares lead the most  secluded   lives;   one   notes   their  -presence, by the-signs they leave  rather than by  sight,   but   they  "come out of hiding in the fading  light of late afternoon and again  before full daylight in the morning-  It was a calm and lovely evening while, with open door, I was  enjoying   the   gift  of   the   quiet  hour and watching the changing  colors of sunset, that a member  of  this   ancient   family   put   its  front paws on my doorstep and  gazed   within  and   around   with  a   comical air : of  interest.   The  floor of my"lodge is'dug \down  well   below   frost   level,  and    I  believe this met with the approval of  my  visitor, for after surveying the premises..he bounded  all-around the building with.audible thumps, using the bankedrup  rock and gravel as a runway.  Rabbits we call them and  there is not enough difference to  make an arguments f he "varying" is seldom applicable here;  in many years I have seen one  'only, that showed a. white. band  on the flanks during winter;  Rabbits burrow and hares use.  forms ��� and that is about all '  the  difference.   Our   woods  are  generous   with   homesites;    old,.:  fire-hollowed   stumps 'are plentiful   and   the  ground   under  the  curve of great windfalls remains  dry in the rainy season, so there  is no. housing problem  in rabbit society.  But there is a dog problem;  the clamor of dogs running on  a hot scent is often heard around  the ranch and more than once I  have taken part in the chase, ���  on the side of the  hunted.  On one occasion a rabbit bolted through the spacing of a wire  fence and came straight towards  me at top speed over the grass,  swerving;as he reached me no -_  more than'enough to avoid collision. The dogs, in full cry, were  halted abruptly by the fence and  the sudden sight of man and  were further confused by a loud  shout.  That rabbit didn't wait! It  was some time-'��� and from far  away��� before one dog told the  other he had found the trail  again.  It is the way of dogs to run  rabbits, but I find the-impulse to  take the part of the little fellow is strong, so as occasion required I have "run interference"  for him ��� as we used to call it  on the football field ��� and have  gone down a well to rescue a  little ball of russet fur that was  in a serious situation ��� noting  at the time that a young One  could not be told apart from a  young rabbit of the well known  Belgain Hare breed. . For, as  Robert Browning wrote:���  "Many a thrill of kinship I confess to ''  With the. power called Nature,  ���Animate,   inanimate, -in. part  or  in the whole,        v??'/V  There's something there manlike  that meets the man in me."

ANGLICAN BRIEFS  The Anglican Church* of Canada has four ecclesiastical provinces and  28 dioceses.  The. first diocese of the Anglican Church of Canada was  Nova Scotia. It was founded  in 1787.

Some driving hints  Signal- when you turn and  turn   when you  signal.  Drive between the white markings, not on-them.  Wash head and tail lights as  often  as windshields.  Check: the auxiliary brake  regularly. It may become your  only brake.  Tail-gating can be fatal. Allow 10 feet between cars for  every 10: miles per hour.  Ice patches are sneaky killers. Treat them with respect.  Rear-window wipers ./are extra insurance on any vehicle..  :  Beware  of  exhaust   fumes   in  slow-moving    or���" ��� halted   traffic  jams. Shut off heaters or switch .  to "inside.'"air."  Be certain the -way is:'.; clear  before .-making   any   move.   A  single    chance   may    be    your  quota.  Check every indication of  faulty brakes, at; once. Loss of  brakes in traffic is a horrible  experience.  Dim your headlights when .driving at night behind another car.  You can blind from  behind.  The driver who takes his time  gets there about as fast and a  lot more comfortably than the  traffic bully.      ' -  At least once a week turn on  all lights and walk around your  car to make sure they are working. Wipe them ,with a damp  cloth as you walk.      ;  On long drives, rest your eyes  at intervals by glances at. hills  .or houses at. a ..distance, the.n  at  curbs-,or, signs  nearby.   ;/��/  Fatigue and dozing at 'the  wheel gives . jrqu a'nodding  acquaintance with/death;  Looking at a card from hdme  with her 12-year-old twin daughters, Johanna (left) anl Lana, is  Mrs. Agnes W.

Also  with  the  men  was  Bob  Hagelund   with   a   nice   single  game of 265.  High three for the ladies was  Dot Skerry with 502. High single  was bowled by Kay Edmonds  with a very nice 229.

Neglect it,, and you may be one  of the millions of motorists who  call for help in cold weather because  of  electrical   failure.  Here are some points about  batteries from Carol Lane; Women's Travel Director for Shell:  The starting load is much  heavier when, it's cold. Even  when the"J engines off, the battery may be called on to work  the radio, heater blower, cigarette lighter, power windows,  horn and lights. With the engine  running, your generator must  supply current for all these  things ��� plus electricity for the  motor and other power equipment.  So keep an eye on the ammeter on.your instrument panel. It  shows whether or not the battery is being charged by the generator. Normally it should show  some "charge" except at very  low engine speeds.  When you stop for gasoline,  have the service station attendant check the battery. How's the  water level? Are the connections  firmly anchored and corrosion-  free? Does the battery need  charging? Do you need a new  battery?  This winter, take care of yojr  car's battery and it will take  care of you ��� in any weather. ���  NEW TIP ^J,  GROWTH ���  CUT OFf HERE  .EXOTIC BLOSSOMS OF  CHRISTMAS Cv^TUS  CHRISTMAS CACTUS  A cheering and vivid touch  of color indoors for the Yule-  tide holidays can be had by  growing  the  Christmas  cactus.  Its bright cerise flowers are  produced in December. They  hang from the ends of flat,  jointed leaves, as .shown in the  accompanying   Garden - Graph.  Some persons think it a  trifle temperamental, but this  is not so. One merely needs  to know its likes and dislikes.  It blooms when other cactus  plants are resting, therefore  it requires different treatment.  When it is brought in from  its summer vacation in the  garden, set it in a cool window-  pad do not water unless the  fleshy  leaves  bogin  to shrink.  In early November the plant  should be watered just a little  unless there are signs of early  budding, in which case the  watering intervals can be stepped up to every three days.  Too much water will cause the  buds to drop.  Early in December place the  plant in full sunshine.  When buds appear, liquid  plant food can be given to it  every 10 days. Keep the plant  out of drafts.  After the Christmas cactus  has flowered, the plant enterst  a rest period. At this time return it tc a north window.  As isfrown, new plants can  be secured easily in the spring  by cutting off a section having  a new tio. Ther.e stem-cuttings  root easily in moist sand, ver-  miculite or plain water. Coast News,  Jan.   5,   1961.  at ramp  offer made  An   offer  to   help   head  off  poor   design   and   construction  of   boat-launching    ramps    by  private   individuals   has   been  made   by   the   Hon.   Earle   C.  ���-." Westwood, minister of  recreation   and   conservation.  ..-     "I have noticed with a... certain   amount  of  alarm that- a  number of ambitious communi-  ��� ties, in an attempt to cope with,  the   rising   demand   for   boat  launching sites,  have built>.in-,  adequate  and poorly . designed  ramps.   These   have not   only  ' proved   costly   but also  have  been an annoyance to boatown- ������  ers," Mr. Westwood said.    -  The department of recrea-r  tion and conservation has devised plans for the layout of  a sample and relatively inexpensive ramp which will meet  the demands of the small.boat  owner. These plans are available by merely writing the  -parks branch, department of  recreation . and conservation,  in_Victoria, " Mr. Westwood  declared.      .  He said the department is  attempting to meet the demands  for boat launching sites in  provincial parks by its own  construction program. However the sensational growth of  the Boating community is providing increasing pressures on  all sections of the province for  increased facilities and many  communities are to be congratulated for their afforts to provide them.  Private operators, clubs or  resorts as well as municipal  governments are invited lo  write the department for plans.  rOREST  MANAGEMENT  We hear a great deal about  the term Forest Management  and it is important that we all  know wihat forest management seeks to do. It seeks to:  (1) Keep every forest acre under  a growing forest crop. (2) protect the growing vahd mature  timber from insects, disease  and fire. (3) Confine the average annual harvest of woods to  not" more than the average  growth (increment) of wood.  (4) Constantly increase the  quality and quantity of the annual harvest by a judicious  selection of the timber currently to be coif. Such" a program,  rigidly adhered to, will ensure  a raw-wood supply for a stable  forest industry, producing  maximum employment, wealth  and benefit for the community  at large.  The Executive Council of the  Anglican Gh>urch represents the  General Synod and carries on  its work between Synod sessions.  More shell fish  As a result of the low salmon  returns this year,' the activity  in shellfish landings has shown  considerable increase.  Clam production last November was almost double the  amount reported last year,  totalling 825,000 pounds worth  $28,000.  Crab landings ' of 270,000  pounds. valued at $30,000 al-  most doubled the 150,000  pounds and $15,000 reported  the previous November.  .The shrimp catch of 230,000  pounds forth $41,000 was three  times as great as the 76,000  pounds valued at> $13,000: in  November,  195.9. "  Production of shucked oysters increased 22% to 8,540  U.S. gallons worth $36,000  Straw berry  varieties  ���  NOW READY  New strawberry varieties are  available and promising ones  are being developed for use in  districts wftiere British Sovereign is unprofitable, advises  J.. H. Harris* Experimental  Farm, Saanichton. B.C.  Virus-free stock of British  Sovereign is now available  commercially; The plants appear to be more vigorous and  yield better than those of the  common stock, but the crop  ripens a few days later.  In Saanichton variety trials,  Puget Beauty has outyielded  British Sovereign. It is a vigorous, productive plant and bears  large, firm and shiny fruit. The  flavor is good and not as acid  as British Sovereign.  Talisman, a Scottish variety,  seems well suited to the area.  It is a good yielder of firm  fruit, but many of the first berries are rough. It has; not the  sharp taste that characterizes  British Sovereign.  Saanichton selection S 4607-  9 is a heavy-yieldingi late variety, that is tolerant to most  local strains of red stele root-  rot. The fruit has a somewhat  bland taste, is rather soft and  has a very thin "skin" and  bleeds easily. Its high yield  and tolerance of red stele make  it , worth while considering  where British- Sovereign fails.1  It has met with favor among  a few local growers.  Another promising Saanichton selection, S 5203-5, is as  early as British Sovereign, has  very'firm fruit and is tolerant  to most local strains of red  stele.  These varieties are all available commercially. Trial plantings of one or more is advisable where British Sovereign  is not profitable.

May your paper always show  such fairness and honesty as  was seeri in your reporting of  the Totem Realty situation.  CONSTANCE P. CRAIG.  ed to progress and freedom  Their handling of the Johnson  letter was an excellent example  of how to ruin a person's letter.  It made 10% column inches in  the Coast News as against 4*4  inches in the city paper.  Press, Pulpit and Public  speakers should be unanimous in  getting the public to understand  the significance of the Johnson  statements rather than playing  them down. None of us can tell'  the reason for what proved to be-  the sensible action of the RCAF  official in charge of NORAD  headquarters as mentioned. Had  he acted hastily tew if any of  us would have entered the year  1961.  Far-fetehed, some may suggest. I cannot tell, but anyone  reading the November Reader's  Digest article wherein the details were explained of the work  in connection with preparing the  atom bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and then have in mind a  recent radio deport given scant  publicity; that - the U.S. has in  its possession 50,000 bombs at  least as powerful as the Hiroshima   bomb.  How can any of us afford to  remain complacent When the  cards are stacked so heavily in  favor of mass destruction? How  can. any sane person agree with  the astronomical amounts of  money being spent on' arma-;  'merits? ..' ,!.,���::' ������";'���  With", in" some scientists' opinions, . enough bombs to put mother earth lout of existence already at hand, will anyone ex^  plain the purpose of building up  any overdose? Is that the best,  plan that our present day states-;  men can put forward to keep1  the ranks of unemployed from  growing?  Can we not. agree with Dr.  Johnson, no matter whether we  are called fellow travellers or  not that; the time is long past  due for calling a halt in build-'  ing up the explosive 'potential?  Should the scientists be wrong'  and some small sections of the  earth remain habitable, are we  justified in standing idly by and  letting an untold number of human defectives and monstrosities enter the world? May I. use  your words in. closing "In t the  days of 1961 that offer hope to-  achieve universal peace and  prosperity." Let us all accept'  the challenge. and play our part  in bringing about a peaceful''  world. DAVE  REES|  24-hour  Towing  Peninsula Motors  Wilson Creek, B.C.

This is not a stodgy, historical stbry, but a lively, human  account of the small group of  Missionary Opiates of Mary  Immaculate, who blazed the  trail for the .Catholic" Church  in the wilderness of the Pacific  Northwest.  Following their departure  from France on February 4th,  1847, the reader follows their  amazing adventures through  eleven war-torn years in the  mission fields of Oregon to  their move northward in 1858,  to open their first mission in  British Columbia ���  Although "Cross in the Wilderness" is true and accurate  in historical detail, it is packed  with adventures, depicting the  humor and pathos of the harsh  life of the early settlers.  Kay fCrbhin, the author,  leans on:; her newspaper experience to write a story in an eagy-  to-read flowing style which presents a refreshingly different  flavor from the more orthodox  histories   of British  Columbia.  For the' Catholic reader,  "Cross in the Wilderness" provides a lively and moving ac  count of the forerunners of  their, faith on the new continent.v  For the non-Catholic, the  tbook brings a rare insight into  the daily tasks of missionary  priests whose lives created a  pattern of adventure and hardship on the Northwestern Pacific Coast.

Kathryn rushed home to Mama, wihto heard her story and  comforted her. She told her  that once as a child she herself  had eaten the frosting off a  cake in the pantry.

But you are not- ���^  bad!"_';';���" / ���.[:-\:'^  ..��� This; ig., not one of the scenes  - depicted in the play���"I Remember Mama" based oh the book. \  But,: as. we/had   the   pleasure  of seeing this play in the Summer. .Theatre at .Winnipeg  last  summer, we were prompted tp  reread Mama's BankAccount.  .It;is a delightful book'and thlsi  sensible . mother  of Norwegian  extraction' oyer jand ��� oyer .again s  helps-. her   children 'to   thi"n*c*.  well of themselves.

How  often a  parent's  faith,  in a son's,or daughter's ultimate  success has  made  all the  difference! Years ago, during *he..  depression, we can recall a conversation   in  bur   family  after  the evening meal. There were  three' of us  attending  college,  and my brother asked our parents,   "What, if  we'don't find  jobs,    after   you've - spent   so  . imuch . money,  on   bur   education?"  Mother  laughed   at his  fears. "You may not earn much,  but if you really-want to work,  -you'lKfind it all rights  ,.,Not long ago: we watched a  father look after :a small active  son. The man 'evidently 'wanted  quiet to read and his little boy,  bursting with energy, was continually, interrupting  him.   Instead of giving the child something  to  do to  keep him  oc- -  cupied,   this   harried   parent's  one reaction was to glance up,  impatiently,   and   say   curtly,  "Willy, keep quiet. You are a  -naughty boy to be such a nui-:  sarice!" If Willy was told once  he was told a dozen times  he:  was naughty.  "A social worker, after inters  viewing girls in a home for  juvenile delinquents, remarked,  "The one thing which they all  ' held' in common, was that their  -parents or teachers or other  adults had quite evidently con- -  vinced them that they were  bad. With that kind of negative - picture of themselves,  what hope was there for the  future?" This trained worker  understood the motive for action which is colored by tha  Way an individual thinks of  himself.  Parents are busy with a multitude of tasks, but from day  to day it is important that your  eon or daughter should realize  that you believe in his inner  worth.        ���-.-���'.  Each person coming into the  world has certain gifts and  each person makes mistakes.  But ..fathers and mothers need  to praise honest effort and enter into the joy of success.  When a child takes the wrong  turning. ' and does something  which is bad, he must be helped to accept responsibility for  his error ;and make a new beginning.  ;": Help your boy to have a fine  picture   of  himself!

Through the ages, the  mints have been variously used  by man, including the Indians  and pioneers, for medicinal purposes  and   flavorings.  Lavender,   rosemary  and pat  chouli    are   perfumes    obtained  from    members   of   this  family.

Many members of the mint  family, introduced in early times  ' . from Europe or from Asia, have  escaped and become weeds or  wildflowers.
