Volume 15,  Number 2,  January 12, 1961.  7c per copy  ; A Complete Line  off Men's Clothing  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.     :;���  Ph.   886-2116  ���  Gibsons,   B.C.  Present  CCF club  charter  Described by Tony Gargrave,  MLA, as one of the most successful functions he had ever attended on the Sechelt Peninsula,  upwards of 70 people turned out  to the inaugural meeting of the  newly formed Pender Harbour  and District C.C.F. Club, at Madeira Park, on Friday last. Accompanying Mr. Gargrave was  James Rhodes, MLA, of Delta  riding.  Chairman of the business portion of the meeting was Steve  Dediluke, club organizer and  president, who r expressed his  pleasure at the strong turnout,  and welcomed the delegation  from Powell River, and also  those from Egmont and Half -  moon Bay. ~\-. T  At conclusion of the short business session, Mr. Dediluke turned the meeting over to Mr. Gar-,  grave, who thanked the voters  of the area for their support  during the J' last ��� provincial election, and Mr. Dediluke in particular for his untiring efforts in  organizing the club. The new  club, he said, was yet another indication of the rapidly increasing strength throughout the province of the CCF party.  Mr. Gargrave introduced Mr.  Rhodes, who was to make the  formal presentation of .the- club  charter to the secretary, Mrs.  Glen Gumming. /  In presenting the charter, Mr.  Rhodes pointed out that this was  the 936th charter issued by the  provincial executive since 1933.  He joined with Mr. Gargrave in  his tribute to Steve Dediluke on  the .successful .outcome of his  efforts towards formation of the  club. _ . -  He urged the members to take  pride in their membership, but  stressed that they should not be  content to be inactive members.  True membership meant more  than merely voting for the party;  it meant a dedication to the party's ideals, and a willingness to  work for them. He was proud of  the fact that the CCF party was  a truly democratic one, in which  the humblest of its groups was  assured that its voice, as represented by resolution, would receive consideration at the party's  conventions.  He pointed out that the CCF  holds more conventions, more  meetings, and has a heater and  more enthusiastic turnout at  such meetings than any of the  other parties. The old-line parties, he said, hold their conventions only rarely, and then, us-'  ually; to make speeches and select leaders. The frequency of  meetings of the CCF, on the  other hand, are organized with  the constant object of discussing  policies aimed at providing a  better way of life for the people.  Mr. Rhodes pointed but the  greatly increased interest of the  general public in the formation  of what is at present called the  New Party. He predicted as a  result of this bold move a greatly increased membership; greater vigor in the conduct of campaigns, and ultimate victory for  the party, both in the provincial  and federal fields. '  Mr. Frank Scott, who headed  the Powell River delegation, also  spoke briefly, suggesting appointment from the' Pender Harbour club of a coordinator tp  work with the Mackenzie Riding  Council in Powell River.  At conclusion of the meeting,  refreshments were served, followed' by dancing. Music was  provided by Mr. and Mrs. Roy  Dusenbury, accordion and piano,  and.Mr. Sfeve Dediluke with his  banjo.  The Powell River delegation  included Mr. and Mrs. Frank  Scott, Mr. and Mrs. O. pisen,  Mr. Stuart Lambert, Mr. Bob  Bryce and Mr. George Smith.  YOUNG POLAR BEAR.  Tommy Lockhart, aged seven  of Madeira Park area decided  to t>e a Polar Bear New Year's  Day and go for a swim. Ho  chose Lily lake for his venture  and after a brief swim came  but of the water feeling quite  cool about the whole affair. He  found the lake water somewhat  frigid.  Up to eight o'clock Wednesday  morning and starting from noon  Sunday, 4.47 inches of. rain fell  in this area, according to Dick  Kennett, keeper of weather statistics for the Meteorological  bureau.

The school board's aim in build  ing a school at Langdale is to  ease the pressure on Gibsons-  Elementary school which now  houses one class in the Anglican  Parish Hall.  Mr. E. C.

For women only  There is a letter on this page which should be read by every  woman, young or old, who has an interest in helping young girls,  along the path of life. This letter is a continuation of a plea, made)  many times previously and no doubt it will have to be made again.  This plea states Girl Guide leaders are needed to keep alive the-'  Sibsons, Port Mellon and Roberts Creek companies. These companies  Save been active for some time but as things now; look they, may  have to be disbanded. , -  A lengthy outline of the benefits Girl Guide^movement supplies  could be printed here. Why it should be necessary is beyond comprehension. The Girl Guide movement like the Boy Scouts should  aot need explanation, 'i .;   :,:^'K'\<   ':; -v" >,;^':-v  v  Examination of the Girl Guide promise will reveal almost everything one should desire in a girl:-The words honor, trust, loyalty, usefulness, friend, courteousness, obey, thrift and purity in word, thought  and deed are there. Is all this meaningless to those people who have  Jfcarned to value honor, trust and. loyalty? If it is we must expect to.  lave an increase in some form of juvenile delinquency.  If the situation moves anybody to make the decision to help,  jnone 886-7710. Let it not be said the Girl Guide movement in the:  area fell by the wayside because leaders failed to appear.  (By LES PETERSON)  When human life first came  to this area is still difficult to  determine. If people lived here  prior to any of the series of  . ice-ages, those cataclysms destroyed all evidence of their  existence.    -  So far as. can be determined;  humanity did riot appear until  about 2,000 years ago. In his  book The-Horned of the Salish  and Dene, published in, 1907,  Charles Hill-Tout states his belief ;that our Pacific coast has  .been occupied for approximately that length of time. His conclusions were based on. excavations made into the Fraser Midden, discovered. at about that  time at Marpole.  Dr. Borden, of the University  of  British   Columbia's Anthropology,    department,     digging  -near "thesamer- spot ^in> 1955,  ��������� caused a sample of ash from: a  lodge fire-area to be submitted  to the carbon test. It was found  to be almost exactly 2,000 years  old, as Hill-Tout had surmised..  The  floor of the lodge  excavated there -ranged in depth  from three feet to about 40 in-  iches    below    present    ground  level.    Post-holes    investigated  were found to have been dug  into barren glacial till, indicating the fact that little vegetation had taken hold there prior  to construction of the lodge.  There is a midden at Gibsons, running for several hundred feet up Howe Sound from  the Municipal Park, about.half-  way between the;ibighway arid  the beach. A layer of clamshell still extends throughputs-  much of this distance at a depth  of about  18 inches below  the  present surface.  Jack Lowden decided a number of years ago to discover to  what depth this rotten shell  and other debris extended. Digging in his garden, on the lot  immediately north of the Municipal Park, he found burned  hearth-stones resting on barren glacial till at a depth of  about three feet. If debris has  collected in the^two places, at  about the same'rate then the  middens at Marpole and: at Gib-  . sons are of approximately the  same. age.      ���-,���-...��� "'..���,-'.  No scientific excavating has,  ��� been done at the latter site as  at the former, arid only a small  . number of artifacts fourid there  can now be located:      ;  A pestle was fourid  on the  Lowden    (Armour)    property.  What could be a corresponding  mortar is a granite boulder embedded in the beach immediate-.  ly : 'below >;'. ''the'! prpperty^iritcK  which a  depression  about the  size  of a soup-bowl  has been  made.   J.M.   Usher   has found  spearheads of quite rough workmanship in has garden near the  creek mouth, and similar relics .  found  on the property of the  Skelding family show that the  village extended north of this  stream..  The crude quality of these  specimens can be accounted  for in part at least by the fact ;  that, as flint was not a native  rock, slate was'made use. of.  This rock, tending as it does -  to flake and fault unevenly,  cannot always' be made into  symetrical shapes.   .,, ,  v  During the summer of 1955  Dr. Borden's group, by submitting every scrap of earth to a  thorough   sifting,   found   some  1,400   artifacts   in  an   excavation about   40. feet  square. It  is possible that the soil of the  Gibsons midden   contains   an  equal    concentration   of   artifacts, but since  no  such  thorough, scrutiny of Its accurriula-  tion has been   made,- rib  very  ismall:; objects:  have,' .been   re-  '''���" claimed, , nor. will  tliey likely  be until, such a thorough search  is made. ��� -  . ���;'������'������.'  ;; '���   Almost the entire Indian village at Sechelt sits on ground  '... continuously occupied far back  into   antiquity..  Clarence   Joe,  council "secretary,   states  that  excavation  : for.   his house revealed    imidden    residue to a  depth  of eight feet, but again  no, attempt has been made, to  , date material from.; this locality.

Human  bones -arid  'stowe   implements  have been found in material excavated frorii this site; but no  study of the midden has as yet  been made. v  ���The Johnson reserve at Garden Bay likewise, in the thick  layers of ., shell exposed along  the bank, shows signs of long  occupancy. Present'.. day residents cannot recall the old  buildings, but, frorii the posi-  tiori���.���oi>;the clam heaps and  frorii the nature of the- terrain.:  they' must have been located  on the flat.ground immediately  above   the  steep  bank to}the  salt water, at an elevation of  some 40 feet.

Eastern American" scholars have in general tended co  favor origin of a branch of the  human   race   here r on   North.  America.

To a good many private   citizens; -probably   in    all  ages, goverririient - has been; considered the natural enemy.of the.  people. The opposite or Pericle-.  an -view was echoed by an Eng���'  lish - politician  at   the  beginning  of this century when he referred  to people outside politics as "not  in the main Stream.of life."  In Canada, where being a:  member of Comirions is becom-'  ing a year-round occupation, the  problem of whether a citizen can.  hve a satisfactory life outside,  of politics grows harder. If a  voter seriously takes a hand in  affairs he may find there is lit-'  tie time for anything else.  The problem is intensified by-  the enormous recent increase in.  the   power  of government;    except   for   labor   union  officials,  some' farm ,leaders and  a ..few ;  hieihfcers  of  the   clergy;* it-  is,-"  hard to find anyone, outside  of  legislative bodies, who has much  say over what may  happen in  his   environment.   Some   educa-5  tors and writers may have a little influence,  but it is   not the:  same heady thing as power. TV  stars   in this   country   are   few,  and so far they have been mk  able to lead ���rusades,  although"  this did  happen  in  the   palmy;  days of  radio, in Alberta.  The'  times   of  personnally  influential  newspaper publishers appear to.  have  passed. - Business  leaders,  who   are   still being  called out  and   paraded   as  bogeymen   by  the  far  left, are  now  typically;  hired help,  busy trying to keep,'  the corporation running for the'  shareholders.    , ;  A   strange  truth,   relative   to'  Pericles' indictment of those not'  involved   in   public,  affairs   as  "useless," is that the great mass  of the people, along the   urban,  streets and farm roads, probably  would agree with the late ;W. B.Yeats that the whole /business of.  nations and governments is bosh  compared  to   individual  human  life  and the  experience  of  the  spirit. All government can do is  organize   and   manage,   whether;  well or ill; the real affair of Jiving is elsewhere,. in the individual  person, with  his ,hope  and.:  love and ibis work. He imay be  "useless" to  the., state; .'jbitt the  burden of proof is the other way  around.  The  state,  that  impersonal thing,  must be  useful to;  him.  Pericles was a great man,;  but he was a politician speaking  for the  interests of the   Athenian state. A paradox is that the  major   achievement  of   Athens'  in politics was the invention of  freedom for at least some indi-  vice^to others and a strong sense  of integrity. The promise is "I  promise, on my honor, to do  my best:  To do my duty to God, and  the  Queen,  To help other people at all  times, and to; obey the Guide  Law."  The  ten Guide laws, are:  11A Guide's honor is to be  trusted...  2. A Guide is loyal.  3. A Guide's duty is to be useful and to help others.  4. A Guide is a friend to all,  and a sister to every other Guide  5. A Guide is courteous.  6. A Guide is a friend to animals.  7. A Guide   obeys  orders.  8. A Guide smiles and sings  under all difficulties.  9. A Guide is thrifty.  10. A Guide is pure in thought,  word and deed.  It would seem that an honest  effort   on "the part of a  Guide  and proper guidance from an adult  leader   could   not   help bu|i.  make a future good * citizen;i,,    ���"  Surely there are women, yoiirig  or middle-aged, single or married,, who can find some spare  time to encourage our girls to  pursue these principles which  lead to happy, useful, lives.  There, are many youth activities today but none can be compared to the Girl Guide movement which is non-denominational and open to any girl who  is willing to make the Guide  Promise. Although our young  people seem to be kept very  busy with school studies and extra curricular activities in the  school, perhaps more emphasis  could be placed on moral and  spiritual standards than on the  much talked of "Juvenile Delinquency."  Any effort by any one individual seems sriiall, insignificant,  and very often unnoticed but everythinking adult has > a contribution to make.  May I take this opportunity of  thanking the Cast News for. its  excellent co-operation, and coverage ' of any news concerning  Brownies  or Guides.  AGNES LABONTE  Editor: Your article of Jan. 5  describing forest management is  informative. Both the Forest  Service and the. forest industry  realize it is absolutely necessary  that forest management must  be practiced in this province if  all concerned, labor, management and the public are to reap  the fullest benefits obtainable  from our forests. More than half  of our forest area is now under  a   sustained yield program.  The question is, who is going  to practice forestry, or forest  management? Governments, ever  pressed for money have been apt  to regard the forests as a source  of revenue, rather than a farm  to be worked. ^Realizing that  some. form of forest management had to be undertaken, the. -  forest service, at that < time uri-j  der���'������ the/ direction of "Dr. ' Orchard, probably prompted by,  and with the sanction of the government, put into effect laws'  granting^ control of large areas  Of the choice'st and most accessible timber, under what were  known as Forest. Management  .Licences, .later the - name was  changed to Tree Farm Licences,  .probably because the name had  become so- unpopular.-:   ? ^   ^  At the Sioari inquiry of 1956, it  was. claimed that the forest service could not: manage -an area  of forest land as well as a private company or individual  could, although it was admitted  that they could if the funds were  made available to them.        :  As it stands now, more than  half of the best timber land in  the coastal area is under. F.M.L.s  To be fair about the -, matter,  when an F.M.L. is. granted it  gives the holder the responsibility of looking after the area,  with all its contingent liabilities then it sells him the timber  on it at a fair appraised price.  It is a good deal for the government as it relieves them of the  trouble of looking after it and assures them a fair price for the  timber.  But it has put the logging, industry of the coastal area 'in the .  position where 70% of the best  timber is under control of less  than 5% of even the fair sized  operators not counting the small  ones. The; result is the impossible situation we have today,  where the so-called independent  operator has in many cases been  forced to pay a high price for  stumpage on a tough place to  log, finds his old customers, the  medium sized mills, who were  no longer able to find a steady  supply of logs, and unable to  lay out. the money necessary for  complete utilization of their logs,  out of business. He then has to  try^ to sell: his. logs to 'the few  large companies who are liable  to tell him they don't want them  because, they ^caniproduce them  cheaper' themselves, and are  probably obligated to cut a quota off the F:M.L. or else pay a  penalty.  F.M.L.s must be taken as an  accented fact how, perhaps they  will be more efficient than what  the logging industry under gov-  ernment forest management  would have grown into. Perhaps  there will be a place for the logger as contractors, but certainly an era has passed in which  the independent logger who hired anywhere from one man to  in a few cases several hundred,  sometimes established ,5.a- com-  .riuiriity, was ablef..'if,���'���';.he was  smart enough, willing,' and able  to work hard enough and get the  crew to flb the same, to make  enough money to pay good wages, be a good customer to many  businesses/pay a lot of taxes,  and perhans_ have some left over  for himself.*"       ,  Whether^, the   new  order   will  provide   something   as   good or  better remains  to be  seen.  E.  F. OSBORNE  What native of Quebec became  America's highest paid actress?  Eva Tanguayy who -was born  in   Marbletori,   Que.,   in  1878.  When she. Was just a child Eva  moved with   her   parents,  Dr,  and  Mrs. Octave Tanguay,  to  Holyoke, Mass.  At the age :of  eight she made heir first stage  appearance.   Later   she toured  the U.S. for five years ���,with a  travelling   repertory   company  arid then acted in variety shows  and musical comedies. Thougii  desqribed   as    "not   beautiful,  not   talented,   hot  clever, not  artistic," Eva Tanguay became  queen of American vaudeville  arid musical comedy after she  reached  stardom  almost  overnight    in     The  Chaperons in  1904.   Its  best known  song,   I  Don't Carei  became her most  popular -request   number.    In  1912 she was the highest paid  actress }n America. Her fortune'  was lost in the 1929 crash. At  about   the   same  time  failing  health    and. vision  ended her  stage career. From then on sibe  was. i*. virtual recluse, bedridden and;; almost forgotten. She  died in-Hollywood in 1947.  How did a whale provide a  place name?  i\i Metchosini;Bi.(CA a; settlement  on thersouthern end of Vancouver Islandy.; about 15 miles  southwest of Victoria, owes its  name to the fact that a whale  was strahded and killed on, the  nearby shore. Metchosin is' derived from, the .Indian term  "sniets-shosin," which means  "a place of oil" or "smelling  of oil," a reference to the effects of the whale's fatal visit  to the area. The chief industry  in the Metchosin district is logging.  Where is Grand Manan Island?  Thin well-known island lies  in the Bay of Fundy and forms  a part of New Brunswick's  Charlotte County. The island is  22 miles, long, with an average  width of five miles. The name  comes from the'Indian Mun-aa-  hook,:vniepning "island." The  chief industries of;, the island  are fishing and ' lumbering.  There are sardine cahneries,  and smoked herring and packaged dulse are produced in  quantity. The rugged scenery  and cool climate attract many  tourists. The island's communities include North Head, Cas-  talia, Grand Harbour, Seal  Cove and White Head.  Has' Canada  craters?  any meteorite  When a very large meteorite  strikes the earth, it may produce a crater of group of craters. Fewier than 15 such craters'  or groups are recognized in the  world, but several crater-like  structures are under investigation. In 1950 Chubb Crater, also known as Urigava Crater, in  the Ungava area "of Quebec  .was first described. It is more  than two miles in diameter, has  a rim more than 500 feet high  and is rriore than a quarter mile  deep in solid granite, in 195.1  the Brent .Crater, a littlei.-less  than two miles in diameter, also in. granite, was discovered  on the northern boundary of  Algonquin ; Park in Ontario.

BLACK BALL  This Week's  RECIPE  Granny kept hens, baked her  own bread and never wasted  anything. Food never tasted  quite so good as when Granny  prepared it. She seemed to have  a special knack for combining  flavors. One dish she will long  be remembered for is her Baked Fish Chowder, a delicious  supper dish which she usually  served acciompanied by hot  mashed potatoes."  Just why Granny called this  dish a chowder -is something  of a mystery. Other than the  fact that it contains fish and  salt pork, it bears little resemblance to the conventional fish  chowder. It's an easy dish to  make however,- and although  the recipe is an old one, the  idea offered may be brand new  to many readers.    <  Granny's Baked Fish Chowder  1 pound fresh haddock  fillets  6 thin slices salt pork or  lean  bacon   (approximate)  Salt and pepper  2 tablespoons chopped chives  or green onions  4 slices  white  bread,   crusts  removed  2 eggs, well beaten  Wi cups milk  Trim fillets to fit an 8"x8"  x2" baking pan. Granny used  a metal cake tin. However,,a  shiny pyrex baking dish makes  a nicer looking serving . container, should you happen to  have one of desired size. Place  enough salt pork or bacon slices  ���in' the dish to just cover the  bottom; bake in a moderately  hot oven (375 degrees F.) for  about 15 minutes to ' lightly  brown the fat.  Place fillets on cooked bacon; sprinkle lightly with salt  and pepper; return to oven to  bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle  ���ciooked fillets with chopped  ��� chives or green onions; top with  bread, slices; pour combined  eggs and milk over bread. Bake  for 25 to ��� 30 minutes or until  bread is a light golden brown  and custard is set. Makes 4  servings.   !  Oyster Stew  1   - pint raw oysters with  '".".������"liquid"; "���'.-.'.

Heat to simmering temperature and simmer over low. heat until the  -oysters plump up and their  thin edges show signs of ruffling. This will take only about  3 minutes. Do not overcook, as  overcooking toughens oysters.  Combine oysters and hot milk;  stir in seasonings. Servie immediately. Garnish each serving with a dash of paprika.  Makes 6 servings.

Scotia Plan Loans run from a few hundred  dollars to a few thousand. There is no point,  of course, in paying costs for money you  don't need, and we will not encourage you to  borrow more than you can conveniently repay. But you can often save money by borrowing enough through Scotia Plan, to pay off  your other debts; and at .the same time by  lengthening the. period of repayment, you  pay less; each' raontfrthan you were^formerly paying.

A-�� The cost for $100, repayable in 12 equal  monthly instalments, is 50*" a month���which  .is included in your monthly repayment of  $8.83. Similarly, $500 costs $2.50 a month,  which is included in the instalment repay-  ments of $44.17.

S.; Anglin of the  Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto; in the, magazine Health,  official publication of, the  Health League of Canada.  Few diseases in childhood  are misdiagnosed as often as  measles, said Dr. Anglin. The  confusion is due to the fact  that there are a number of  virus diseases whkih have  rashes that look like measles  but are caused by entirely different infecting agents,  Simple: measles has several  characteristics. The / symptoms  make their appearance from  ten to 14 days after the patient  has been in contact with another person who ;has measles.  They usually begin with a  head cold, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, bleary eyes and  some fever. And an examination will reveal whitish dots  on the inside of the cheeks adjacent to the molar teeth. Several days later a rash appears  ���a red, blotchy .eruption on  the skin.

Simple, uncomplicated measles causes acute discomfort  and usually only lasts about  one week. However, it can  easily be confused with similar  infections such as Roseola, German Measles and Echo Virus  infections. Frequently only a  doctor can tell  the difference.  Dr. Anglin says, if you or  your children have not had  measles and are exposed to a  case it is wise to take the im-  orriediate precautionN of taking  anti-measles serum or an injection ...of. gamrha globulin to  prevent or at least modify any  case you might develop.  Here are some Of the serious  complications of measles and  it�� related infections/Most of  them affect / the respiratory  tract and the nervous system.  /Among them are pneumonia,  obstructive laryngitis, -measles,  croup, or tracheitis, lung infections and measles encephalitis,  which often affects the braui  and may leave permanent damage. German measles may  have a. serious affect km an  unborn child if a mother contracts the disease within the  first three months of her preg-  ���;nancy7v-.  Dr. Anglin. concludes, don't  treat measles lightly and if any  unusual symptoris .appear, consult  your  doctor  immediately.  RED   CROSS   APPOINTMENT  ���W. B.

MU 1-7541  9CG7-1  For parents only  By   Nancy Cleaver  WHAT ABOUT RECESS?  Do you remember recess  when you were a youngster?  Was it not one of the really  bright spots in the school day?  Did you not get to know other  children with' a special kind,  of insight into; what they were  really like when you , played  at recess, or talked (or quarrelled) with them?  Schooling is not just "book  learning!" One of the most important parts of education is  "social learning." A child must  have some standard by which  f to size up the character of  ' other people. Is Bill a "decent  guy," a "chicken" or a "bully?"  During recess, he has the chance  to make this kind of appraisal  of personality.  Weather conditions do affeet  the feasibility of recess. Cold  and rainy, sleety weather require warm apparel, raincoats,  rubbers. Children are apt to  catch cold sitting in wet  clothes. But they should be  sent to school adequately protected against unseasonable  weather. Getting in and out of  snow suits: is quite a task for  little folk. But skilfulness in  clothing one's self is one way  of developing independence.  *    *    *  For boys particularly, undoubtedly there are hazards  during a recess period. Scraps  occur and. children get banged  up. Occasionally a fairly serious accident occurs. Before the  days of more durable eye glasses, often, these were broken.  Supervision-by the teaching  staff to prevent harm to limbs  or property, is essential. It is  not an easy job to give enough  and not too much direction to  recess. If your child's teacher  does this, why not express appreciation for this task well  done?  During recess a sdholar has  the chance to make progress  in his attitude to rules. If he  wifl not conform to the neces-  Printed Pattern  in  9477  14V��~24&  Copyrighted  sary safety regulations, he  must suffer the. consequences  of losing the privilege of recess. If his class also suffer,  they are likely to do some disciplining of the "non-conformist." An opportunity is, provided by recess for older boys  and girls to look with the  teacher at rules; and suggest  changes and additions. Co-operation of a really useful kind  is likely to appear when youngsters feel they have some part  in governing their play time.  Do you know wihether your  child during recess lives under  a dictatorship or a democratic  regime? The attitude of the  teaching staff to rules at recess  is one possible yardstick for  the "climate" of the school.  *    *    *  One of the ways in which  democracies claim their way of  life is superior to a communist  regime is in greater freedom  fox the individual. With crowded classrooms and the: shortage .  of teachers, a lot of Vregittien-. ^  tation in. an ordinary.public* ���>  scihool' is almost a necessity.  But recess has special wortih  when it is not "regimented.'  Exercises in the classroom  from this standpoint are no  subtitute. Neither do they fill  young lungs with fresh air or  let active bodies "let off steam"  in a spontaneous joyous fashion. Many critics are saying  that Canadians are "too soft"  physically. They should have  more strenuous exercise outdoors.  Tests have proved that only  inefficiency results from too  long a span of time of concentration on any one subject.  This is true of both children  and adults. Most youngsters appear to be able to concentrate  more easily on their studies  for the last periods of the  *<*^oX.,.:hali"!*|yr. if recess has  given them a real change from  classroom routine. Recess, is a  valuable part of the school day.  Its merits far outweigh its difficulties, and it is important  to continue recess time in the  school day.

THRIFTY DRESS SHOP  GIBSONS ��� Ph. 886 9543 ower pots for green thumbs  Greeh-thiurhibed housewives  who insist that house plants  will thrive only in porous clay  pots are making a mistake.  According to Dr. A; P. Chan,  . of the Plant Research institute,  Canada Department of Agriculture, plants will -grow just .as  well in non-porous plastic pots.  He carried out his tests at the  Central Experimental Farm  here.  When plants fail to grow In  plastic pots, Dr; Chan said, the  fault   usually   lies   with    the;  4  TINTING and STYLING  Ph. 886-2409  SECHELT HIGHWAY  Gibsons Village  grower who forgets that plastic  pots retain water much longer  than those made of clay. Over-  watering plants in1 plastic pots,  leads to- root rot and other soil  diseases.-> <-; -"���'���'���  On the other hand clay pots  present problems of their own  because of their porosity, he  stated. These are vthe.growth of  algae (usually seen as a green,  slimy, scum on the outer surface of the pot) and the extra  water needed to compensate  for evaporation from the pot  surface. Plastic pots do not  have the algae problem and do  not require watering so frequently as clay pots!  Plastic pots, said Dr.  Chan,  also are much lighter in weight,  more colorful and are available -  in many attractive designs.

The senior Hare-  stads were among the first settlers in Cape Scott on the northern coast of Vancouver Island  in the days before World War I.
