"iT^e- Alice  eovcue of LAyebiPER.gATH salts  SchodI transportation and text books  (By   GEORGE. COOPER)  Article 2  Abuses in the transportation  of pupils, and some disconcerting revelations concerning ��� textbooks, are reviewed in this article. \  All but  seven  school  districts  in the province use buses to carry pupils to school,  the   report  .states. ���  In; 1945 Dr. Max Cameron,  commissioned to report: on educational financing, recommend-,  ed buses only to carry students  to central high schools. This  would give many more pupils  in the province the opportunity  of a secondary'���education.'' Many  districts in the years following  also carried elementary students  to central elementary schools to  save building small schools in  outlying districts. A hardship resulted forelementary pupils who  had their day unduly prolonged  because   of   the   later   dismissal  time of high school  pupils.  To return school transportation to its intended place in  school affairs the department, in  1954, suggested that small elementary schools of at least two  rooms for g'rades 1 to 6 be built  in the pupils' home localities.  The Chant cammission, too, suggests that . children should be  housed at. least until they are  eight, .or nine years of age, in  neighborhood schools.  Turning from the purpose of  buses in the schools system to  their operation, the commission  found the safety.record excellent  and the inspection of all vehicles by the RCMP thorough. As  for drivers, present regulations,  when fully enforced, ensure the  safety, of the pupil passengers.  Although the commission saw  -^evidence only* of the calm�� and  polite/ behaviour ; of; .pupils "on -  buses they ^cngriizV that ihere  is incidence of unruly conduct.  In such cases the' firm opinion  of the commission is: Deny trans  porta tion to pupils who create  disturbances.  There is a direct relationship  between pupil behaviour and the  supervision of buses in operation. Since a school board owned bus is always under the supervision of a school board employee, through whom the board  can insist on standards of behaviour, the commission^ favors-  buses owned by the school board  to those operated by contract.  A further statement on transportation indicates that, despite  regulation walking distances, a .  school board should provide  transportation at district expense  to any pupil living within the  limits especially when traffic  dangers and other unfavorable  conditions exist. v.;^^ - *t*M..t*v  ; vTjhe??gre3t dependence on -^exjj^;; books  books   produced   in   the  United -���"*�����--  Ww (Boasi Mtms  Bones i  'The Family Doctor*  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News  Aid., P.O.

The water  The Wilson Creek meeting for the purpose of getting something  started on a metropolitan water board for this area-is a move in the  light direction but it should be remembered some exploring of this  idea has been gone into previously.  Gibsons Board of Trade has quite a file on it and speakers have  appeared in Gibsons at the Board of Trade arid Kiwanis club outlin-  ' ing possibilities and probabilities. It has been estimated that the initial cost for such a water system to cover the widest possible area  would be in the region of $750,000 to $1,000,000.  Generally speaking the water issue appears to be more of an im-  ; mediate factor in the area from Roberts Creek to Pender Harbour.  -Gibsons and Port Mellon and points between appear to be getting  ; along with their present^ systems. Port,Mellon is capable of taking  care of its own requirements having improved its system just last  ; year. Gibsons is in a favorable position for some time to come.  Sechelt has water but is faced with high cost water which the  ratepayers do not relish. West Sechelt is tied in to the same system.  So is Selma Park. Davis Bay and Wilson Creek are not so well off  Iiaving difficulties which are immediate and cannot be put off much  longer or there will be no water available.  The Wilson Greek meeting which was attended by about 20 persons, some with active and others with watching briefs, named a  committee of three to delve further into the matter. It might be advisable for this committee to arrange a further meeting and invite  people to it who have gone into the water issue and present the knowledge they already have available. .'.������-.  In the meantime those desiring water in their own areas should  proceed immediately to get their requirements filled because a metropolitan water district with water being supplied will take considerable time. Such planning should however be in line with tying in  to the larger system.  ���<&.._..  (ARTICLE 4)  As has   been  previously   intimated, :��� the    most   profound  single phenomenon to make itself felt in the history of our  coastal Indians was the advent  of smallpox.  The residents v of  Sechelt.   which had, from  evi-.  dence of the extent of its midden, undoubtedly been a fairly  populous village, were decimated to such'an extent that, so the  story has come down, what'few  were left alive could not properly bury their dead.  The truth of this story seems  to be borne out by the fact  that skulls and other human  bones have been found indiscriminately scattered thorough  debris of the midden. In view  of the fact that Indians all -up  the coast have generally interred their dead with ceremony  and.care, the presence of these  bones where,., they were found  speaks of some catastrophe:  It would, seem that, the ��� Sechelt   village   was    still    very  small as recently as 1888, for,  according/to  an account given  by     the    Rev.  A. G. Morrice,  O.M.I.,   in  his   History   of  the  Catholic    Churc:b   in   Western  Canada,   only   then,   following  the     investiture      of     Bishop  Durieu   a��   vicar   of missions,  and    under,  his  guidance,  did*  the -.tribe, scattered  'along   the  peninsula,   gather   at  the   strategic   isthmus . Exactly    when  the    smallpox   struck   is    not  known.  The story at Gibsons is in a  way a happier one, but it did  lead to the desertion of the  Chek-Welp village. The late  Fred Soames, as a child, witnessed, from his home, the departure of * the entire village  population for Squamish, and  in fact it was through this departure that some residents  learned of the presence of  smallpox at Gibsons.  The disease was apparently  brought to the locality by  Arthur Hyde, a purser on one  of the Canadian Pacific orient  liners, who had homesteaded a  mile from' the shore in 1888 He  was- nursed by "the. .Gibson  family, but died and was buried,  in the Gibson family cemetery. -  In all, 11 persons, 'contracted  the disease. Mrs. Ji Collins, now  of Bowen Island, daughter of  Henry Smith, who homesteaded locally in 1888, places the  date of the outbreak in the  year 1892.  Years later, Mr., Soamea  related, a canoe with a single  paddler made its way down the  Sound, and asked if the epidemic was over. A few families  made some use of the site until  about    1925,    but    Chek-Welp  could never be called a village  again.   All   four   West   Howe  Sound reservations are now. under lease and are quite solidly  built on, with little likelihood  of their toeing  again occupied  .by native Indians in the foreseeable future. The reserve  at  Wilson Creek remains unused,  and only two or jthree .families  now ������ live  oh the .' Johnson  reserve at Garden Bay.  Bearing in mind the fact that  at no time since it became  habitable thousands of years  ago has this .area been uninhabited, -we shall, next turn  back to its "discovery" by  Europeans.

The Greece of that century and its vicinity produced such  great men as Plato, Socrates and Aristotle to name a few.  TEhe Delian League was a confederation of states under leadership of influences in Athens. Times have changed since then and  Greece has fallen to a low estate requiring assistance.  While the action of Elphinstone High School in Gibsons in adopting a school in Greece might seem incongruous in view of the glorious past of Greece, so long ago however, it could be represented as  thanks for the great men this small nation has produced down through  the years, men who have had a great impact on thought up through  the .generations that have come and gone. that it is a product of the soil.  Even the supplying only of pencils by Elphinstone pupils for poor   Like    the    farmer's    crop,    it  Greek children could be the start of a movement to raise the intel-   grows;     unlike    the    farmer's  ledtaal status of the nation of the future. It is a small start but could   crop' lt takes 1_fr^>m ?n.to  1����  years or more before it is ready  to harvest. The science of forestry is based on fine principle  of treating the forest as a crop,  of tending that crop during  the growing ; period, and of  harvesting it in such a way  that another crop will'follow.  This is;x called silviculture,  which is a term comparable to  agriculture. The forester uses  silviculture as a tool. His job  is to practice forest management, to produce from the for-  estlhe greatest quantity of the  mo^t valuable products in the  shortest time and at the lowest  cost.  Iiave a powerful effect.  "Are you- your '-most attractive  self?" the ad read. "Chances  are you are one of the many  women who never realize their  full  beauty  potential.";/'/; i; ;":' ���  Hypo (Hypothetical Woman)  unfolded her long length from  the chair and lumbered over \to  the small mirror which hung  oyer-; the sink., .She".studied- her  face,  chins -and goitre.-. .   ,,;.-.  She was unable to find any  trace of potential beauty, and decided she must have lost it some  where along the years.  "O well," she thought, "a face  is beautiful if it is kind, gentle  and sweet, even though it may  have lost its fresh, youthful appearance."  She glanced into the mirror  SigamV Sne failed to see' anything  kind, gentle or sweet in the wea-  therbeaten features that squinted  bacK at her. She took her glasses off, but that only made it  worse. Same weatherbeaten features, only blurred as if by fog.  She flopped back into her chair  and went :on with the ad. "���  grooming routines which' work  wonders of improvement in their  appearances."  Hypo .pondered on'that for ..a'  few minutes and then climbed  out of her bib overalls. She found  a slip in.a drawer and dug a  blouse out of somewhere and a  skirt from a little-used closet.  After she had put them on she  "noted that the skirt had, besides  .shrunken in the waist band,  stretched in length* and now  reached to her ankles. Perhaps  it was just out of style. She did  not look especially well groomed.  Hair? Che flicked off her red  'kerchief. That mop of multicolored, streaky matting was  once a warm, shiny, well-disciplined, brown cap. Hastily she  replaced the  'kerchief.  "���correct makeup will emphasize  good, features���"  She hunted about for make-up  but could find none. For that  matter neither could she find  any good features. Except  per  haps her' store teeth��� heaven  .knows they had cost enough ���  but they didn't stop her gums  trom snrinking and causing her  face to droop more than normal-  Jy-.        .:...���:���.''���..".���  '������eyes  can be more   expressive���"       "Well,     good!"     she  thought.   She   had   noticed   that,  since wearing glasses, her eyes,  so far  as expression   was concerned, were identical with those  of a very dead fish, on ice.  So  she  chugged, up to   the attic  to  the theatrical make-up box' and  found mascara and eye shadow.  It was wasted effort as it turned  out. She was unable to apply the  stuff ..'with  her glasses  on,   and  when she removed them the mascara landed haltingly in her eye.  "���proper care, can turn problem hands into pretty hands���"  Hypo  studied her  hands. She-  had worked   in   the garden   for  so  many  years   without gloves  that    her    hands    were    tough  enough to pull  out blackberries  without   harming    anything   but  the  blackberries.  She had often wondered, when  watching glamorous women on  TV drooling over their soap  while the. bath water got cold,  why none had favored Fels Nap-  tha. She used it all .the time,  with the addition of Old Dutch  in stubborn cases. It was fine  for xemovirig soot and stove oil  from her face too; She guessed  there wasn't . much more she  could do about her hands.  She took her good grooming  to the. bathroom mirror and felt  disheartened. With a certain  amount of damage to the seams  of "the skirt she bent to dig the  scales out of the corner and then  remembered that the useless  thing went to only 250 pounds.  She kicked it back into the corner.  Back in the kitchen she again  picked up the ad. "Write for our  Personal Beauty Analysis," it  said. Hypo eased herself back  '-to her bib overalls, chucked  the magazine into the wastepa-  per basket and went out to the  blackberries.  States, the commission finds,  and the poor material content  of so many of the texts, Canadian included, give rise to many  justified  complaints.  Since  textbooks determine the  contents   of   courses   taught   in  our schools,  the unsuitability of  so  many of them is a cause of  grave concern. About 42 percent  of  authorized   textbooks,   chiefly  for the high school grades, are  American^..some revised for .Canadian use, but the; greater number not.  In   such - subject fields  as   science,   mathematics,   and  foreign  languages  the  origin of  a text* may be of no consequence  but there is still the influence of  Americari editing. Arid in  texts  such as; history books, Canadian  editions   of  Americari textbooks  appear  sketchy,   contain  errors,  and display poor, writing.  ^Majiy iso^alled^^Cahadjan text-  . >oo&��/are ^^i^}^fj^eri$Sai.. :���  books* and  when", Canadians  do  write,  it is  chiefly If or the  elementary arid riot the high school  level. Of the. textbooks for courses   in  English,   24   percent  for  elementary   schools   are   American in origin and the high school  texts  for   English  of   American  origin outnumber those  of British origin,'-..������ an odd imbalance.  Far more disturbing than the  place of origin is  the poor material   of   many  texts.   Obvious  haste  in  preparation,   errors  of  fact from .carelessness  or   lack  ���'- of diligent research, poor organization shake  the  confidence of,  teacher and pupil alike.

Complaints specifically mark  lack of literary quality in some  elementary school textbooks ���  a fact particularly emphasized ,  in our Sechelt District brief ���  ��� and the jumble of topics in some  science  texts.  The inconsequential material,  trifling even.'/to little children,  of several series of readers  which may be carefully arranged exercises in reading, are  drab and utterly lacking style.  Could there not bc;^ many briefs  asked, readers that use prose of  literary value and verse of quality.

Lack of accuracy and  thoroughness where it is most  essential along with outdated  facts regarding, for example, the  British Commonwealth, and colloquial and questionable grammar should not be tolerated.  The commission finds the -methods   of  selecting   texts   most  efficient but the lack  of choice  of   books  supplied  by the  publishers,    most    disturbing.    The  picture  is not   entirely gloomy,  not   only were   some texts  condemned but many were praised  f~>r their  good qualities. The investigations    do     reveal    that  though no list of texts will ever  fully satisfy the community there  are definite needs  at   the  pres-,  ent time in the matter of school  v  texts."-' ���  NATURE THE PROVIDER  Mice are known as the "Bread  of the Forests" and are sought  by every form of flesh eater in  the forest. Because of this fact  nature comes to the rescue of  the little mouse to keep his line  from becoming extinct as well  as assuring the flesh eaters of a  ready dinner. The number of  mice produced to meet the demand is truly phenomenal. Mice  produce youngsters, every 21  days and have a brood ranging  from six to eight each time. Imagine the numbers that develop  from one pair when each of these  have a litter of six to eight. It  has been estimated that a single pair of meadow mice have  potentiality of a million or more  relatives in  a year.  Fish enters debate  Here is another entry in the fats affect the heart issue. It comes  from the British Columbia printed Facts on Fish. Read it arid make  your choice, butter fat vs corn oil vs fish. Which?  This is what the Facts on Fish article said:  Tish has long been regarded as a fine food, tasty and palatable  in great variety, rich in protein, minerals and other essentials. Exhaustive medical research now gives fish top marks in another field  ��� as an essential food in the battle against' heart disease! National  magazines and newspapers, including Time and the Wall Street Journal have carried numerous articles on these medical discoveries.  Medical research has proven there is a strong connection between animal fats and heart disease. Animal fats produce cholesterol  which clogs the arteries as rust clogs an iron pipe. Fish and vegetable oils on the other hand do hot produce cholesterol and so are  recommended as foods.  It has long been known that fish make brains. Now, with this  new medical knowledge, smart people will eat more fish!  Scientists work on snoring!  I  DOCTORS FOR CONGO  The Canadian Red Cross will  send more doctors to the Congo  republic. Physicians and sur-  .geons possessing the necessary  training and experience are being offered four to six month  assignments.  One of the first causes or  sleeplessness is the violent snoring of a person nearby. However  it may comfort sufferers from  this malady; to know that scientists are working to solve the  problem.  According to information reach  ing the Health League of Canada, a doctor in Britain has developed a - series of exercises  which may cure snoring once  and for all. The exercises, performed by the snorer before retiring, are designed to fatigue  the jaw and tongue muscles and  thus, it is hoped, so tighten them  that the jaw will not sag nor the  tongue reverberate if the sleeper breathes through the  mouth.  The  experiments were report  ed in the British magazine "Fam  ily Doctor"- after many distraught readers had written in  to ask if there was a cure for  snoring. The editor, Dr. Harvey  Flack, published some excerpts  from  the/letters:  "He vibrates, starting off with  a slight snore, then rising like  a volley of thunder."  "My husband is worried because I make such a rattle, he  really thought I was  dying."  "My wife, a remarkable woman, can ' now snore with her  mouth  shut."  Dr. Flack said the exeroises  were designed by a man he described as "a distinguished physician" who wished to remain  anonymous. There are just three  exercises   at   present   and   they  take only a few minutes to perform.  The first consists of holding  something such as a pencil or a  pipe between the teeth for ten  minutes. In the second, the finfers are pressed with moderate  firmness on the front of the chin-  and then the tongue is pushed  forward firmly against the lower teeth. The third exercise is  unnecessary if you sing a lot.  It consists merely of opening  the mouth and saying "Ah" or  some other such disturbing noise  for three or four minutes. This  holds up the palate and tightens  the muscles of the throat.  Dr. Flack said his colleague  does not promise a. cure for  snoring, but first indications are  that th? exercises will help many Re-freezing food For parents only  A      I...11-1-���    I-.��..~J     �� At--     tt n  By  Nancy Cleaver     Coast News'  Fep-  9��  1961-       3  A bulletin issued by the U.S  Department of Agriculture answers a question often asked  about re-freezing foods. The article says that occasionally foods  may be partially or completely  thawed before it is discovered  that the freezer is not operating.  If foods have been partially  thawed and there are still ice  crystals in the package they may  be  safely re-frozen.  Even this partial'thawing may  reduce the quality of the food.  Re-frozen foods should be used,  as soon as possible.  If foods have slowly thawed'  and have warmed gradually over  a period of several days, to a  temperature of 40 degrees F.  they are not likely to be fit"vfor  re-freezing. Under these conditions meats, poultry, most vegetables and some prepared foods  may become unsafe to'eat. Most  fruit and fruit , products soon  develop an undesirable flavor.

Reason  for Chief Stickland's resignation  was  given  as  his  difficulty   in,  maintaining the close touch necessary, due to the distance at  which he resided from the centre   of . the   brigade's   activities.

Watch your  mortar mix  For the handyman who has  reached the stage where he can  lay his own brick andv block,  selection of the proper mortar  mix. is most important to the  finished, proje'qt. Different  mixes are recommended for  niS3 with concrete block and  ������; brick. See your supplier for  that recommended with his product.  ..Here are some of the desirable qualities of good mortar  mixes:  ;.��� They - should    work    easily.  Workability is obtained through  use of the proper sarid, a mortar with high  water retention,  and  by mixing thoroughly.  ' The mortar must retain waiter to bring about an effective  boi.d  with   the  masonry   unit.  If the unit has high absorption  qualities, it should   he 'wetted  down prior to laying in a wall.  Mortar should be strong and"  durable, depending on the type  cf service it is called, upon to  give.  Walls  that will' be  subject to severe strains and weath-,  er conditions naturally need a  stronger mortar.  The bond of the mortar holds  f.jjfie concrete, brick together.  The. kind of cementitious material;" its quantity, the mortar's workability, the surfaces  it is holding together the water the units -wil} soak up, and  the masart's" ability to make  good joints will.all affect bond.  In general, ;nsei -of admix Vires  to :-lower.-the freezing point of  mortar, for ��� cold .^'weather construction is not recommended,  unless, expert advice is scmght.  In the large quantities necessary, to Bring; the freezing point  down,' hiortar - strength and  other qualities may be affected.  Calcium chloride can be ad- -;  ded.'to;..hasten setting so "that  tne.v^mortar will ; harden more,  quickly to the ^point where it  will resist freezing.  Western schdol trustees appear  to be, in full agreement on at  least 'one ."aspect of teachers', ��aK  ,'aries ��� ,the~ time for granting increases merely for the sake of  increases is gone; future increases should be on the basis  of improved qualification and  classroom performance.  This became apparent in discussions at the third Western  Conference of School Trustees in  Vancouver, Jan. 30 and 31. > Delegates of five provincial associations, Manitoba (two groups),  Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, met for two days  as guests of the B.C. School Trustees association to examine ^edifc  cational trends iii ~ the four 'provinces.  This western conference is an  informal group, designed primar-  ��� ilyto keep trustee organizations  in the four provinces informed  as to each other's activities and  to  exchange information.  There was another obvious  field of agreement, largely the  lcsult of Royal Commissions in  Manitoba, Alberta and B.C.  This was the need for a 'harder'  curriculum in schools generally,  and for-greater challenge to be  offered to students.  On salaries the  western trustees   felt    generally     that    too  much was being written into salary contracts;   that   such   contracts should be concerned with  salaries   alone,   and   that'fringe  benefits and other considerations s  should be covered in a separate  memorandum,    or    some    other  form of agreement.  This   is  al-1  ready being practised' in. some  areas, delegates ' said'.'    "\  All were interested;in  getting  more teachers on higher prdfes-   <  sional standards, in the interests   ���  of education as a whole.  Delegates     also    felt    school  CONSERVATION DEFINED  Conservation means more than  putting the .brakes on use of  field crops, trees and minerals.  The conservationist ;.is, ."not a  hoarder, but a person who makes  judicious choices! ;;He has three  general-: principle^.'He ^applies  resources primarilyto"those uses  for which������ they, possess particular qualifications and prefers to  use continuing or recurring resources instead of fund resources. He also tries to protect his  sources of supply.. 'Conservation  summarized could mean we will  use without using  up.  principals should be part of the  management team, rather than  standing,tonly - as members of  "teacher federations, and that  their responsibility to(l management should be fully recognized  on both sides.  A good deal of time was given to discussion of better teaching. One of the points made by  delegates was that school boards  should have  the  opportunity  to  recognize  the   excellent   teacher  by  paying more for his or her  performance;   that  it   was   bad  practice to recognize such teachers by promoting them out of the  classroom   into '   administration, i  There should, be -opportunity for  advancement  in' teaching  apart  from administration. ���  '   Better use, of schools  by   all-  year use,  instead of permitting  heavy capital investment to  lie  idle for large parts of the "year,  was also discussed, though ^with-  out definite recommendations being  made.   Three   major   points  were put forward: 1. The heavy  capital   -investment ��� ������ in    school  buildings/merits' '"more .full use;  2. family-^holidays- are no  longer -confined    to    the    summer  months,  but extend 'through the  year;' 3. the present system with  long " interruptions    causes   too  much loss of time at,either end  of the school -year.,  The   .three    provinces    which  have "had .royal commissions on  education agreed to press their  respective governments to take  early action on vocational schools  The need for them was apparent,  said conferees.

Potatoes peeled ahead of time  before cooking or left standing  after cooking may lose some of  their nutrients.  Other tips when cooking potatoes include the following: Don't  overcook them.

The  talk  was   Sparked   with  humor but  "did    the"  government    mortal  damage in its attack on Wenner-Gren,  B.C.'s power policy  and   the  department  of labor, "j  To the discomfort of the gov-',!  eminent he -told .them that So- :,  cial  Credit'ith*S6ryji had always  used the-internatiphal financier"^  as   a 4 ituhdamehtal   evil,    but 4  when Mr: Wenrier-Greh7 arrived ���"'.  in British Columbia, the Social i;  Credit  party  in   B.C.   did not; 1"  recognize; him; 4.'���  Mr.  Macdonald   gave   a  fas- :  cinating   resume  of   Mr.   Alex ":  Wenner-Gren's business history.  Mr.   Wenner-Gren   started   out  in. the  electric -light bulb  and -  vacuum 'cleaner manufacturing  business in  1936. Then he began   to   manufacture    anti-air; .  craft Borfor guns for the Nazis .  in   1937.   The  40   mm   cannon-t;  could    fire   shells  at   120 per  minute but he was nice enough  to give his patents to the J ai-  panese,; Britisa and Germans  during World War II, at of  course,   a  suitable  royalty.  He was a confidant of Hermann Goering and "engaged in  diplomatic   and   business   ventures for Mr. Goering. and was  eventually   blacklisted   by   the  Allies in World War II as being detrimental to  the  Allied  war effort; Mr. Macdonald told  the legislature that  Mr.   Wenner-Gren was a business associate of Alfred Krupp who was  impeached for  theft  and  slavery by the Nuremberg Trials.  ���;;.���* '������.# ��� *."������':.  After reading from the mem- .  orandum   of   intent  with .the  B:C. Government and Mr. Wenner-Gren,. Mr.   Macdonald   reminded the legislature that Mr.  Wermer-Gren 'is  better known  for talcing capital out of a coun-:  try than in putthig/ capital into a country. He told the-mem--:,  bers that Mr. Wenner-Gren and  Mr.    Bernard "Gore    retained  73% control of the Peace River  Development:   Company     and  stood to make  many millions  of dollars oh stock option;; spec- '���������  ulative profits.  This technique was hot raising capital for hiydro-develop-  meht in British Columbia but  it was raising capital for the  promoters -through a process  of extraction, he.said.  ^ He told:: the legislators that  a government can maintain its  credit for. the; development  of..'  bur natural .-.resources  without .-.���  ^allowing   -pirates - in"' on   the  ground floor of our north.  Concerning the apposmment v  of the present minister of Education, Mr. Peterson, to his new  job as minister of labor, Mr.  Macdonald^ hoped that Mr.  Peterson would hot become a  Mr. Jekyll. in the department  of education and a Mir. Hyde  Tn the department of labor. The  Vancouver East member was  plludin'g to the ominous note  .that Mr. Peterson has injected  into legislative debates by  hints of ��� repressive labor legislation. Mr. Mscdohald's address  was in the finest tradition of  incisive, witty;; and' concise  legislative debate..  Robert D. Wright; N.D  NATUROPATHIC    PHYSICIAN  . ;; Graduate of   -  Cal.
