Frank Hicks, of Gibsons who is  a pretty good bowler did bowl  the Spare and nine strikes, for a  403 -* score a few nights ago at  E & M Bowladrome in Gibsons.  Mr. Hicks has done considerable bowling in his time, dating  back to 1936 when with an AOTS  league he bowled a high single  of./398. Later with the Vancouver  School Board league he held an  average of 212 up to 1958 when  he moved to Gibsons. Joining  the Teachers league in .1960 he  has tried to regain his previous  marksmanship and until his 403  game he had a 186 average.  Frank likes bowling and finds  it good fun and a fine recreation.  "Harbour Credit Union serves the  area from Halfmoon Bay on, and  the Port Mellon Credit Union.  operates at the other end of the  peninsula.  From time to time, members  have wanted to giyo the credit  union a more all-inclusive sounding name. The expense' of making any" change has:" always been  the chief obstacle to this excellent "idea. The present name-  comes by reason of the credit  union being formed at Roberts  Creek; iri: 1941.  Four School Savings Clubs  are now. sponsored by the Credit  Union in Roberts Creek, Wilson*  Creek, Sechelt and Egmont Elementary schools. The first three  clubs were formed in 1956 and  1957 and the last one to join,  Egmont, entered in December,  1960. The total amounts collected from , these schools in the .  last four years comes to slightly more than $4,400. These iare  the credit union members of  the future, and they- are making  a good start, towards their own  future.  ed the festival < thanks all who  took part and helped make it a  success;: It .is - the hope of the  committee to make this event an  annual; affair.

A New Vision  National Health Week will be celebrated this year in Canada for  the 17th consecutive year. It is probably the oldest and the most  widely suported Health Week in the world ��� all of which is to the  credit of Canada, says Dr. Gordon Bates in  the Health Magazine.  There are those who find no fault with Annual Salad Week or on  Annual Neck Tie Week, but criticize Annual Health Week beause  they say we should consider health as an important objective not only  during one week, but every week. True enough! But we don't. Most  sick people shouldn't be sick, but they. are. Most people who are  overweight should be thin. But they're not. Most of the millions of  people with defective and decayed teeth should have good teeth. But  they haven't. A multitude of different ailments fill hospital beds and  cut short the lives of people who should be instead contributing to the  national economy because they are healthy.  Surely it is logical that once a year people all over Canada, even-  in the most remote hamlet, should have the opportunity of learning  that health is possible for everyone. And because of all national agencies, church and school, radio, television, the press and service clubs  co-operate, this is possible. It is possible because they all act at once  in a concerted effort. During the rest of the year attention to health  and its objective is casual and intermittent, y .;yy���_.,���; y .'^w.vy  Perhaps thousands of citizens who learn something about health  dozing National Health Week may become apostles of health themselves. So, like a ball of snow which gathers more snow as it rolls  on its way to become a snowman, the knowledge people gather about  health in a single week will grow.  *���.-..- *��-...'  Spring, beautiful spring  The time is approaching when the female pulse will beat a little  faster. It will be the time for Easter finfery.  The idea comes from a Japanese discovery that the pulse beats  faster wlien the woman changes from western dress into a kimona.  Naturally it is a press release supporting the sale of kimonas.  However leaving kimonas aside and turning to the world of the  Sunshine Coast there is something to be said for the theory put forth  by the Japanese research.  Merchants know that when a certain article is displayed, and they  sfand and watch feminine reaction, the pulse does beat faster because of the interest shown.  There is no need to worry about popularizing style in this country.  Have you seen the latest fuzzy hats?. They look like dyed cufcdown  versions of a Guardsmen busby. Noting that Queen Elizabeth wore  one at the reception to Commonwealth premiers, they will be all the  rage until something new crops up.  Taking a different tack, how about the male pulse? Does it pulsate aft a faster rate when it sees the new garb or does the price of  tbe hat or dress really create the faster beat?  Regardless of what the weather will be like towards Easter, the  female mind will turn toward a release from winter into the splendor  of spring. If It is a nice sunny Easter Sunday this year and you go  to church, even for that Sunday only, you will feel psychologically,  the increasing beat of the female pulse. Try it and see. Most everybody will be pleased, the wearer of the new finery, the merchant who  sold it, and the minister of the church where you will be.  Pathetic Fallacy  (By  Les Peterson)  Mist In the morning, and my mind is rising ...'  Dawn in the east, as through my eyes comes sight  Sounds Irfftft^fie skies, and -to my -ears returning y.  Come their reverberations as my thoughts alight.  Cloud in the. Evening,, as my heart is setting ...  Gold in the west, then salmon, purple, night...  Silences, called to thwart my self's escaping,  Come all too late to catch my soul in flight.  .���/���f>  Fish for tattle?  Fish meal is highly regarded as a nutritious food for  poultry arid pigs. The market,  ihowever, absorbs only about  20% of the Canadian production, so the bulk of Canadian  production must be sold on export markets. Extensive research is now being conducted  by the federal ���overnment and  various universities to develop  a fish meal equally acceptable  to cattle and sheep. Oil meals  produced from vegetable  sources are generally prefer-'  red by farmers and ranchers  for these animals, and are  cheaper. If a fish meal suitable for cattle could be produced, the Canadian market could  then absorb the entire Canadian  production of fdsh meal.  (By P. W,  "Oh, the little pigs had done  it, Och, the dear little, girrl," so  ,"��� sang himself on the Seventeenth  of Ould Oireland,., pinning a tuft  of .Shamrock tied with a green  ribbon to the lapel of his coat.  "Now Sheena me darling, what  have ye done wid me good black  hat?'' said black hat peihg some  20 years old ��� was almost as  green as the Shamrock.  His hat on at a jaunty angle,  his blackthorn stick in his hand  and wid a cheery "Good-bye me  darlin," himself left on his morning walk.  On his way down to the village  he was joined by his old cronies,  Timmy    Haggerty   and    Johnny  Donovan. "The top of the marn-  in to ye both," says he. "Shure  and  the same   to   ye,   Pat. me  bhoy,"   they   chorused   and   the  three old men who had been born  and bred in the tiny fishing village  of.;. Casteltownsend,   County  Cbrk]�� Ireland, fended their %ay  doWnvtOthejqu  "rpretty>: colleens on the way. ' :  ���Arrivingat -the quay they; inspected the fish boats and their  owners land watched "a. group.f bf  young lads making their way to  Fenwick's   Saloon   to   wet   the  head of   St.  Patrick.  '^Och^ Itis  a ��� grandy marmhg,''   said   Pat.  ���" 'Tis in  to Fenwick'sy we-Up; go  arid  see' the girrls.'' .^The/^.Eg^.  wick girrls ��� were.; noted; f or A their  beauty  and ability to pour portlier into a glass widdout spilling  a/drop..-.;.;.;;:./.'. '..:'-' Vy-]:  They greeted the ;old boys with,  "Ah-ha^ ye; spalpfcens^ what di-^  veltry are youy;up to now?" To  which Pat replied,: ' 'Now Mary?  me darlin, we ciame to see the.  swatest coleens in all Oireland ������  and to  enjoy a drink poured by  your own pretty hands." .  "Bad   cess  to   ye  Pat   for your  blarney,"     says    Mary.     "Have  you the tuppence to pay for the  pint?"  "We have that," said Tim, giving Pat a nudge who in .turn  nudged Johnny, and among them  they dug up sixpence to pay for  their three pints  of  porther.  By this time the other two  girls, Rose and Eileen were  through chaffing the young lads  and came to say hello to the  three old boys, who were formerly known as the three bad boys  of the village.  "Shure an 'tis elegant ye are  this marning wid your Shamrock an all," says Rose, while  Eileen winking at Johnny asked  "Where are you taking me tonight?"  So laughing and drinking the  old boys were joined by some  of the young men. "So you are  the ones responsible for poor old  Shatin Casey^gbing off his'head.  Tell us about it," said one. L  "Shure, do ye remember the  night we stole Mike Harrigan's  blackbird?" spoke up ' Tim.  "Didn't we take it out of the  cage and put a black chicken in  instead and when Mike came  staggering home tighter than a  drum he forgot to bring his.bird  in for the night and the next  morning he couldn't make out  why .the blackbird didn't sing  so he went out to see, then let  out one roar and made his way  down to the schoolyard looking  for the young blackguards who  had stolen the best blackbird in  all Ireland. x  "Catching sight of the terrible  three he went after them. 'Come  here ye young divils," says he,  'and   I'll  give you  the skelping  of your young lives.' Pat and  Timmy got away but Johnny  was caught as he tried to jump  the wall. Mike wielded his leather belt with a vengeance until  Johnny's mother, hearing his  yells came running with Johnny's Dad's blackthorn and lay it  across Mike's shoulders  and he  yelling b y murther."  "But wishna now," said Patrick, "the best fun we iver had  ' was the night we met old Shaun  Casey at the crossroads asleep  in his donkey cart from spending the evening in.

Well, at the  same time I was up the. road  digging a grave :.for., the victim  ���of'-, a hit and fun accident ��� and  if you say that it was only a,  dog'��� legally you are'right, but  the facts are the same, be it a  child, a. cat, or as in this case,  a young healthy dog, the intent  is the same.  Although I do not know any of  this sect personally, they must  be a pretty sorry spineless lot,  to not have the guts to admit an  error, or to a legitimate accident, as this cas*e may well have  been, but to leave an animal,'!be  it human or otherwise, just lay  in the road and die must. take  a very odd type of creature.  You may have noticed that I-  have not referred to this, either  totally blind, or totally sadistic  being; as a man, as this term  does not include this breed, in  any way, shape or form.!  I hope that this "member of  our- so-called civilized society"  has found the reason for running over our dog, easier to  come by than my son has found  a reason for not having his dog  to play with.  : In one year there have been  four dogs killed on this side road  .which is approximately, one mile  long, and as it is alL but impossible to operate an automobile  without, having at least "fair"  eyesight, all of these killings  must be attributed to overspeed-  ing, in an area where the maximum elapsed time that could  possible be saved would be ONEv  minute.  Must we  kill  a   human being  to stop this type of malpractice?  Our dog today ... Must it.be  our  boy tomorrow.?.;? ? v  Ray V.. Delong, Field Road,  Wilson Creek..  Editor: The Civil Defence men  .are   running   true   to   form���-  .minimizing   and   misleading   the  public with  regard   to  the dangers of  nuclear  fallout.;  They are -obviously afraid to  deal with ::the facts as they are  known and to deal with situations . that  could actually occur.  For example, they say- that  "anyone with a good basement,  reasonably airtight has a good  fallout shelter." For such a  statement; I am not entitled to  call them; liars, the statement is  true under .some circumstances  and false under others. Could  they; not-say that according to  experiments carried out at' the  Nevada testing grounds, a. basement with partially exposed  walls (such as most houses in  this area have)yaffords 2 to 10  fold protection against radiation,  and thatvipeople in a shelter ithat  offered i 10 fold protection could  be killed by radiation in two  days .even at distances as great  as: 60 miles from the explosion  bfja 20 megaton bomb?        !;!  if Civil. Defense dealt in realities, the people would  soon be-  y  come  informed enough to upset  I the ^government : and-its defense  ^policies. To prevent such an occurrence  the  government   seuds  out its  CD  men to  soothe   and  'misinform the  public with  such  meaningless phrases as ."a quite  lengthy   hibernation",   and   such  lies as "fallout blows away and  there is no. danger." The fact is  that the radioactive fallout just  blows   somewhere   else  and  the .  danger is still present. '-  ;    It has been stated by the Institute for  Defense   Analysis   in.-.-  Washington,   that   an attack   of  120,000   megatons  could  wipe out  !l00%   of  the   population   of   the  ,'USA if the population were untrained   but .'were   instructed  to  remain  under  shelter   after  the  attack.   If   the  population   were  ��� '. well-trained and had six months  in  which to  build  shelters,  95%  .would be wiped out by this same  .attack.  ..Experts have  repeatedly  stated    that    there   is    no   defense  ^against   a   nuclear   attack.

Tommy's eyes shone happily:  "I'd like to try. I've helped  you and Mummy several years,  and last Spring Mummy promised that maybe I could have  any own little corner in the  garden this year. I know what  I want to grow . . . carrots,  because they are good to eat  raw and nasturiums, because  they are pretty .and easy to  'grow too, .and their leaves  taste nippy."

"I'll ask your mother about  you having a garden after you  go to bed. If you plant the  seeds you will have to take  care of them. We don't want  to be ashamed of your part of  the backyard when Grandad  comes to inspect the vegetables  and flowers!"  * . '   ���*���'���-.��� ���; *  .    When Tommy's .'parent's talked over their son's garden they  decided to   let him  go   ahead.  "He's so keen about it, it  would be horrid to say 'No'! if  we can say 'Yes.' Tfoere are  lots of things Tommy has  learned about growing things  from helping us. And after all  it's more important that he  should "grow," than that we  should have, a very .grand garden, Where 'he's no- small spot  iof his own," his mother observed.  I remember an old woman  with a large family in the village; where, I grew up. They  had a marvellous family garden . .,''-.'" each child had two  rows' of his own. She. used to  say proudly, "We grow children,, too, in our garden-" and  it was quite true. "They had  a Tot of fun, it kept them out  of mischief, and it was really  astounding the quantities of  flowers and vegetables they  produced," Tommy's Dad added.  .?> .V *��*  'f~ 'f -*-  Enthusiasm for gardening is  as catching, as measles. If  Mother or Dad, or both of  them, get a lot. of satisfaction  from a garden hobby, of  course tfheir child is going to  want to dig and plant and water and watch the small green  sprouts appear. Adults can see  quite plainly that a bud appearing or a bud opening is, a  real miracle in a child's eyes  ��� and in this prosiac world  are" there not far too few  "miracles?"  Children comprehend a great  many things before they go to  school and parents can- make a  gardening venture a real  "learning situation." A child  'becomes skilled and acquires  knowledge by actually doing  things hiimself. He does have  to have "guidance and some  help, but these should be kept  to the: very minimum;  Herey"is av chance for him to.  make choices,' and to let them  be his " own decisions within  limits.

Pleasing contemporary styling, with, clean uncluttered lines
across the front would make this home a favorite in any setting,
whether it be against the majestic grandeur of British Columbia's mountains, the rolling hilts'of the Gatineau or the clear
blue .skies of. the Prairies.
A big, feature with many home builders is the 'fact that this
house can be contained on a 60' lot allowing, for 6' sideyards,
and this not only includes a garage for the family car, but allows living space for the whole area. This is accomplished by
locating tihe garage under the kitchen area, which, of course,
makes it an eminently practical house for the climatic conditions
where a carport is not practical. *
Bedroom privacy is a very essential part of good house designing and the bedrooms in this house are located across the back
completely, isolated- from the actual living room portion .of -the
house. The livdng/dining/kitchen are, across the front of the
house to take advantage; of a view site,; nook; in the kitchen is
large enough for the family to 'dine/'<eh;famille,,Vbut,.tii.e dining
area is always available for company dining. Planter wall, book
•shelves, china cabinet, and the fireplace''-'at the end wall of the
dining room add to the attractive appearance of the living room.

Legislative changes announced
by Attorney General, Bonner will
give British Columbia the most
comprehensive indemnity ever
provided the innocent victims of
traffic accidents in North America, All Canada Insurance' Federation officials   report.
The changes in the Insurance
Act and Motor Vehicles Act were
worked out between the government and the insurance industry as represented by All Canada
Highlights of the changes:
1. Starting June 1, the minimum limits for pink slip automobile insurance will be $25,000
inclusive limits. This means tha'
people insuring for the lowest
amounts y, allowable    will    have
"925,000 ' insurance' covering bodily injury and property damage
to others and that the $25,000 can
be used to pay either bodily injury or property damage claims
or both.
At present the lowest limits
permitted are 10, 20 and 2 •—
meaning that' up to $10,000 is
available for bodily injury to
any one person, $20,000 for bodily injury to two or more persons and $2,000 for property dam-
age liability.
2. The insurance industry,
through All Canada, is setting up
the Traffic Victims Indemnity
Fund, which; will replace the
present Unsatisfied Judgement
fund completely, - and will provide .indemnity to victims of hit-
and-run accidents,,' victims when
a stolen car is being driven by
a person without a license or
without insurance. In none of
these cases does insurance coverage usually apply.
In addition, the T.V.L*\ will
indemnify victims in the case
of property damage as well as
bodily injury. -The present Unsatisfied Judgement Fund applies
only in cases „of Kodily injury.
>The~ hew fund will start covering property damage /June 1,
1961; up to a limit of $2,000 and,
until the end of this year, will
also cover bodily injury claims
up to $10,000 for one persojn or
; $20,000 for two or more persons.
Starting Jan. IV 1962, it will provide coverage up to $25,000 inclusive limits, the same as the
.minimum limits of insurance
which will be iri effect then.
Starting immediately, also, the
new Traffic Victims Indemnity
Fund will adopt ^ settlement
methods much more streamlined than were possible under the
terms of the old Unsatisfied
Judgement fund, so that settlement of claims made on the
fund will be speeded up. to an
appreciable  extent.
The new. minimum insurance
limits, 'and the eventual limits
of the new fund Will give British
Columbia the most complete protection of innocent victims ever
devised for North America. The
limits of $25,000 for a single bodily injury case are the highest
on the continent , The $25,000
provided for ■ property, damage
when there is no bodily injury is
also itlwt. highest on the; coiitihent. Tj.
in the case "of $25,000 provided when two io£: more persons
are injured in the same accident, the amount is second only
to that of North Carolina, when
the limits under-these circumstances are $30,000. However.
North Carolina's.. limits for injury to a single person are - only
$10,000 while limits on property
damage are' $5i000y
v Irt no other area in North America, furthermore, will motor-
..ists and pedestrians be protect-

year after the minimum limits
for insurance became law. This
is because automobile insurance
is written for a one-year term,
so that a policy written May 30,
1961, for the old limits of 10, 20
and 2, would be valid until Mav
30, 1962. Therefore, if the fund
limits were higher than the le:
gal limits until that date, a victim might be able to collect
$10,000 if he had been hit by an
insured motorist.    ;
In this case, nowever, .tlie. insurance business agreed to v a •
split; the difference compromise
whereby the legal limits of some
motorists will be: higher than
the fund ; limits for six months
and then the fund limits will be
higher than the legal limits of
other insured motorists for six
month's-— all depending when
the motorist happened to get his
insurance. After June 1, 1962,
legal limits and fund limits will
be identical again.
