To export logs, or not to export logs, that is the question.  One side, says yes, the other is  just as firmly opposed. A panel  of four men will discuss this contentious problem on Jan. 19, the  windup day of the convention,  which is expected to attract 1,500  delegates.  The four men are Ralph E  Smith, of " Arnett Smith Timber  Co. Ltd., E. J. Biordan, Vanwest  Logging Co., I. T. Cameron, Vancouver district forester, and N.  R. Dusting, B.C.

An  item of top interest brought to  the attention of council was a  letter from, the department of  municipal affairs in Victoria  which complimented council on  its tax collection record.  Gibsons municipality has collected something like 95 percent  of its taxes and expects to get  the   othfcr five percent   shortly.

Maisie, four  step children,.two sisters in!Ireland. He "was out walking his  dogs on Denman street when he  collapsed.  A meeting of Girl Guides Mothers' Committee was held in December at the home of Mrs. Labonte. All mothers of Guides and  Brownies were approached in  September,.and asked to contribute a dollar each, to the group  to avoid the necessity for- frequent bake sales, and other fund  raising activities. _  Of the $19 collected $15 25 has  been spent as follows: $5-to the  new Langdale .Brownie pack for  the purchase of necessary equipment, $5 expenses for the Guide  who attended a Vancouver function and $5.25 for candy and oranges for the Brownie and Guide  Christmas parties. An appeal is  being made to those who have  forgotten to contribute to this  fund to do so at their earliest  convenience. Mrs. J. Marshall is  treasurer.  Preliminary, plans for a mother and daughter banquet in  May were discussed and parents  will bs consulted early in the  New Year to ascertain if there  is enough interest to make such  a venture  worthwhile.  Guides Club House was decorated with evergreens, paper  chains and a Christmas tree for  the Dec. 22 party. The evening's  entertainment and refreshments  were the responsibility of Erica  Ball who was successful in passing her Hostess Badge.

Necessary equipment  will be bought with the $37 raised from the holly sales.  80 9uests attend anniversary  Christmas to Mr. an4 Mrs. F.  J. Wyngaert was a day with special significance, their silver  wedding anniversary. The cele-.  bration was a two-day event,  with pec. 24, Sunday, given to  friends and relatives who called  to extend their best wishes!  Christmas day was devoted exclusively to relatives and dinner  was served for 30 persons. During the two days, visitors numbered 80.  The interior of the Wyngaert  home blended. Christmas lights  and decorations with pink and  white garlands and bells depicting the wedding anniversary. A  silvered Christmas tree with blue  lights added to the effect. From  walls and pillars the numerous  anniversary and Christmas cards  were displayed.  Entering the front door one  noticed a beautiful bouquet of  flowers, white chrysanthemums,  from husband to wife, a replica  of the bouquet given the bride  25   years  ago.   Other  pink   and  white chrysanthemums were presented by a niece, Mrs. Sundi  Farrell.  Three nieces, Bonnie Stroshein,  Jo-Anne and Royleen Nygren,  served tea and dainties to, the  Dec. 24, visitors. On the dining  room table was7 a three-tier decorated wedding cake, set on pillars and set off with large white  rosebuds and * silver leaves and  mounted with a cluster'of dainty  bells. The cake waskmade and  decorated by. Mrs. Celia Stroshein, sister of Mrs. Wyngaert  and matron of honor 25 years ago.  Arrangements had been made  to have as many of the original  wedding party present,for the anniversary and they included Mrs.  Celia Stroshein, matron of honor;  Mrs. Philip Fletcher, a bridesmaid and sister to the groom;  Mr. Philip Fletcher, best man  and brother-in-law of the groom  and Mr. Paul Stroshein, an usher  and brother-in-law  of the bride.  In addition to many cards and  letters of congratulations the  Wyngaerts   received   long   dis  tance and local telephone calls.  Rev. L. B. Preston of the Pentecostal Tabernacle in Gibsons  sent his congratulations from  Neepawa, Man., and a sister of  Mrs. Wyngaert called from Regina, Sask., at the moment when  30 guests were about to be seated for dinner, Christmas Day,  ���which enabled each to return  greetings by telephone.  A phone call from Kelowna,  B.C., informed the Wyngaerts  ftat owing to Mrs. Wyngaert's  mother suffering an illness she  would be unable to attend. The  mother will be 82 shortly.  In chatting with the many  gixczts, Mr. Wj'ngaert related how  quickly the 25 years had passed.  His only regret at the moment  was in realizing how strenuous  was the task for his wife during  the past week with her extensive  baking program, candy making,  and cooking. Other than that, he  was most happy with the event,  and remarked that he was prepared to sign up for another 25  years.  1.

BOWLING TOURNEY  A ten pin bowling tournament toGk place Thursday 28th  al Sechelt Bowling Alleys and  the winners were Mike Turik,  Lawrence Crucil and Bill Morrison.  IN HOSPITAL  Mrs. L. Rogers, wife of A. C;  Rogers of Rogers Plumbing is  now in St. Paul's hospital where  her condition is reported to be-  improving.  School in 25,000 BC  Children of Roberts Creek  school "wowed" the large audience in the Community Hall who  Laughed and applauded through  the varied contributions to the  histrionic art by the fun-loving  Thespians from Grades 1 to 7.  The concert started off on a  cheerful note with the smartly  caped and capped pupils of Mrs.  Galliford's grades 1 and 2 giving  excellent rhythm band numbers.  This was followed by a play,  Jack and the Beanstalk, done exceptionally well, and humorously aided and abetted by props  and scenery. The happy, perambulating cow won much admiration and the beans were the envy  of all vegetable growers.  Mrs. Want's pupils were cheerful in their version of Hansel  and Gretel, and again, the props  were amusing and clever. The  witch's house was built by Mr.  Hicks who also bore a close re  semblance to Santa Claus who-  arrived later to distribute candy  and fruit to the children.  Mr. Carter's grades 6 and 7  had written their own play and  enjoyed every minute of it. It depicted the Roberts Creek schoor  in the year 25,000 B.C. when the  subjects taught were archery and  other necessary arts. When the  curtain went down, the teacher  had been, bumped and the bur-  lapped and furred students were,  awaiting the next'victim.  The Parents Auxiliary who assisted in every way possible  gratefully acknowledge the help-  of the Community Association*  for donating the hall, fully jani-  tored, the beautifully trimmed  tree and Santa Claus, the Legion-  for the loan of chairs and the Ladies' Auxiliary for extra crockery, and to those who contributed cookies and sandwiches for  the refreshments served after  the show. 2       Coast   News,  Jan.   4,  1962.  life9$ Darkest Moment  AVBBSTBBOJlanC  m  r-v  &-�������  ���LOOK AT XrtAT PATH     .

Young Indians succeed  When one considers efforts now under way to help young Indian  band members to take an active part in the Canadian way of life the  recent issue of The Indian News published by the Indian Affairs department in Ottawa reveals some of that activity.  In it is a double page spread containing excellent pictures;of 19.  young Indian band members who are well on their, way towards such  an objective. These students won scholarships totalling $18,610, ranging from $200 to $1,750.  Scholarship subjects covered were forestry, business course, law,  teacher training, vocational training, home economics, ,music, university, dentistry, nursing, engineering, drama and industrial arts.  One young Saskatchewan Indian won his third scholarship in  music. Another his third in medical studies and a third his second in  law. In all some 26 scholarships were offered but only 19 winners  were used to make a double-page spread. The photographs of these  young Indians reflected the degree of assimilation these young people had achieved.  A tally showed seven from Quebec, four from Ontario, three from  Saskatchewan, three from the Maritimes and two from the West Coast  area. If Indian bands can produce young people of the type shown in  The Indian News, there is a distinct hope for the survival of the  native Indian as a vital force in the future of Canadian culture.  Don't criticize the work of others unless you want to do the work  of others.  3f* 9f* ��]C  �����-*������'.  A question answered  One of the letters on this page last week posed a question which  one surmises sought an answer. The question addressed to the editor,  read: "I have found out why secrecy by public bodies has become  a matter of self-defence. Have you?"  After having attended meeting after meeting of municipal councils, school boards and ratepayer associations over-a long period of  years and having attended several municipal association conven-.  tions and hobnobbed with governmental municipal men perhaps a  glimmering at least, of the troubles facing public bodies has penetrated the mind of the writer.  The reasons are quite numerous and can result in a pure cussed-  ness type of self-defence or one that is an obvious necessity. In the  latter type, public officials deserve consideration. An irate ratepayer  can irritate the public just as easily as he or she can public officials  and irritate in such a manner that general alienation of affection for  the ratepayer really sets in.  Experience has shown that public bodies rarely get away with a  dictatorship type of control. It might carry on for a while but it invariably gets nipped.  Ratepayers have democratic rights but not to the exclusion of  the democratic rights of public officials who in this area anyway are  ratepayers who have ventured into a field of endeavor beset with  numerous obstacles, including irate ratepayers.  Why should local letter writers be so interested in a piece of  legislation under consideration in New Zealand? Has it local application?  Filigree  When I have depleted.my store of dreams,  And exhausted my last desire,  And nothing remains but the tattered seams  Of the cloth that my hopes require;  When I, in my cupboard of inner selves,  Look for one final mask to wear,  And only bare hooks and the empty shelves  Tell of moods that were hoarded there;  When out in my garden of "I pretend"  Fabrications and plans melt away,  And petal-fed flames and blue leaf-smoke end  My illusion's precarious day;  I'll dabble the ashes to tint and hue,  And imagine a spider's themes,  Then over and under and back and through,  With spangles of star-dust and gems of dew,  I'll embroider tomorrow's dreams.  confidence in seh��  "School trustees of British  Columbia go into 1962 with one  of the moat, solid expressions  - of public confidence they have  had ia many yeans and with  tills prospects of making a material contribution to our school  ���system and the province's economy 'through the year. At the  Same time they face mounting  (responsibility in school :manage-  fment and a growing opportunity to advance education."  This summary! of 1962 outlook wias given by R. E. Lester-  iof Hanley, president of the B.CJ.  (School Trustees Association, as  1961 drew to a clsose.  .December's elections provided the expression of confidertde,  and it came in two directions:  1. Election of trustees; 2. Support of money rteferenda.  In the case of fliectiors; Mr.  Lester said the most signifioent  point was that out of 82 school  districts involved, y only four  , jflafflted to fill vacancies. Two of  these no nomination cases were  lin r eities, and two in villages.  Town ar.d districts filled adi  .^eata. ,��� 77,��� y ..      'k-k '���  The fact that iorily four appointments will be necessary to  ifill school boards..; is in sharp  contrast to recent years, in  Which no nomination reports  wtere fairly common. It shows  (increasing public interest in  education, Mr. Lester suggested.  (Further evidence af this  growing public inrtjerest was  found in another exatrople ���.in  37 districts extra candidates  ^necessitated elections. In other  anunicipali-ties school board  iseats were filled by acdlacma-  Ttio'n, which, in turn can be in-  '���larpreted as an expression of  ���confidence in the persons offer-  iing for these seats, he said.  . The second v expression ,of  Confidence was in recent school  referenda, in which ratepayers  through the province during the  .'laeit 2*/_ months approved near-  ily $20,000,000 in new school  construction. ';, Y  Every school money proposal;  except    one   at the December  elections was approved by voters, with majorities well over  the 60 percent minimum requir-  Jed. The one failure was a $100,-  000 vote for kindergartens, and  (this  could   be intferpretfesl, he  suggested, as an indication that  public  demand , for  kindergartens '��� at least in that area, Y  ChiMiwack, is not kjee*i enough;  ���to vote money for them. ; "  '���These programs in many  cases wilEl be put into acton as  quickly* as possible since the  Kidditional school accommodation is sorely needed in many  districts. The full program may  be spread over three years,"  said Mr. Lester. But in any  lease school construction wall  (add materially to B.C. wa(ges  this year because in addition  to the new votes there .will be...  a carry-over from referenda approved in I960 and 1959, which  ailiso were on a three-year  basis."  Added to this will be the  (government's $13,000^000 technical school construction program, making a total of $32,-  000,000 for public schools how  on the drawing boards.  Mr. Lester, foresaw increas-  ds changed. Mr. Lester noted  that the government is consid-  dng responsibility on the part  of school boards, especially if.  .the provincial government's  (grant structure for financing  the school districts' operations  tering    a    lump   sum form of  *A*  Prepared by the  Research Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA    CANADIANA  vHow was Montreal founded? ,:  ThT-site of the;:i^nd;c^  was visited by Jacques Oartier  on his voyagte of exploration  up the St.TLawrenice in 1535 ^6.

Threie Islands, Great Migue-  Hon, Little Miguelon and St.  Pierre in ithe Gulf of St. Lawrence, just 15 miles, from .the  south coast of Newfoundland,  are possessions of France.

Whai incidert in Canadian  waters initiated the collapse  of the Spanish Empire?  The Spaniards, at Nootka  Controversy, occasioned a decisive -con-EMd; between British  and Spanish theories of colonial  sovereignty. Spain claimed  lhat the whole-northwest coast  of America was hers by papal  declaration and that the visits  paid by her .-eocplorers to the  region and the formal acts of  possession thtjj | had carried out,  (made her title to it absolute.  Great Britain took the view  that rights of sovereignty could  be obtained only through trade  ���and the estab<]ish_nf_nt of colon-  aea.. War appeared imminent  but Spain found herself in a  . weak military position and  finally yielded to British demands in a convention signed  on October 28, 1790. According  to one authorfjty this was "thei  first express renounciation of  Spain's ancient claim to exclusive sovereigntyk : . and marked the beginning of the collapse  of her Empire."

High school as name to vanish  The name high school may be  expected to disappear gradual-  ly from official educational yo-;  cabulary within the next few  years, the Hon. L, JL. Peterson,  minister of education, predicted  when he formally opened a new  milUon-Hlollar senior school In  North Burnaby.  The-name highYschobl is unsuitable for a number of reasons,  Mr. Peterson pointed out. It is  not in general use in other partis  of the world as describing secondary schools; and it implies  entry into university, which is  true for only a portion of our  - senior students.'  "The present . Public Schools  Act; adequately defines elementary and secondary^1 schools,"  said the minister, "and it seems.  reasonable to make full use of  these names. From now on we  shall begin to refer to. schools  enrolling ���. pupils from Grades  VIII to XH or XIII as secondary  schools. Schools which may come  to enrol pupils.from Grade VIE  to X only will be junior secondary. If and when it becomes desirable to establish schools enrolling Grades XI to XIII,;they will  be referred to'as senior secondary.  "It will be recfalled that the  Royal Commission recommended  that types of schools be renamed  to correspond with" their reorganization," Mr. Peterson added.  "The commissioners explained  that they had no particular preferences in regard to names, and  my department, after careful  consideration, concluded that  such names as collegiate academy   were   neither   traditionally  suited to bur educational system  nor accurately descriptive of all  types of secondary school which  might be envisaged in British  Columbia."        , -*<  At the present time seven  types of school are recognized in  this province -���elementary, junior high, senior high^elementary-  junior khigh, , elementary-senior  high, junior-senior high, and superior. The last refers to schools  that enrol pupils' up to Grade X.  The present names will be retained; as long as they have  meaning during the transition  period, but with a year-by-year  advance toward reorganization,  they will gradually disappear;  therefore, it is expected that eventually we shall have not more  than five types of schools, the  minister said.s y  A BIG BUSINESS  Few people realize that -the  commercial forest area of British Columbia exceeds by about  a million acres that of the Western United States, including the  eight Rocky Mountain states,  Western South Dakota, Washington, Oregon and California.

Underwriters'  Association reminds that the best  way to avoid a "grease fire is to  keep the stove clear of grease.  The C.U.A. recommends scouring of the oven as a timely precaution.  In    addition,    while    cooking,  grease containers should be kept  away from the stove. When frying food in a pan on top of the  stove, a large flat pan cover and  a long handled fork can be used,  to smother a fire. If the grease  in the pan catches fire you can  usually extinguish it quickly  by  lifting the  coyer with the  fork  and-placing it over the,pan.

British Columbia's coastal waters are rich fishing grounds and  in an average year fishery products worth between 60 and 70  million dollars are harvested  from them. The most valuable of  the many varieties caught is sal-  mon.  Salmon  accounts for  about 65  percent of the total value,  herring 16 percent,  halibut 10 percent and  all other fish the  re-  -maining nine percent. The other  fish   include   such   members   of  .the cod.and flatfish families as  lingcod,   grey  cod,   sablefish  or  blackcod,   rockfish   and   sole.  It  ,also includes smelt, crab, shrimp  oysters. and clams. ,  ;With an ocean of fish at the  front door, it's small wonder that  west coast homemakers take a  special interest in fish arid enjoy experimenting with different  ways of cooking them.    '  Pacific salmon is riot- just one  fish, but five different fish, each  with its own special characteristics arid place on the menu. By  name they are Spring, Coho,  Sockeye, Pink and-Chium.  The Spring Salmon is: the largest of the five.. Its flesh is soft,  rich in oil, and varies' in color .  from deep red to pale pink. Depending on the color/it is classed as Red Springer White Spring  The two types have equally good  flavor and are principally marketed in fresh and frozen form.  They are excellent baked, grilled, fried or steamed. It is from  the Springs that mild cured  smoked salmon, known as "Lux"  is  processed. ',......  The Coho is a good-sized fish  which averages about nin<v  pounds in weight. Its flesh is  rich and medium red in color.  Both commercial and sports fishermen catch the Coho. Most of  the commercial catch reaches  the fresh and frozen fish markets, although a substantial quantity is also canned: A whole  stuffed and baked Coho is an eyecatching dish for a party occasion.   .  Most valuable of the five varieties is the Sockeye. The flesh  of the Sockeye is firm, rich and  bright red in color. It holds up  especially well during the canning process and almost the entire catch is canned. Canadian  canned Sockeye is a deluxe product and is recommended for  use in hot and cold dishes when  richness   and  color  are desired.  Smallest and most numerous  of the salmons is the Pink, so  called because of. the delicate  color of its flesh. Most of the  catch of Pinks is canned. Pink  Salmon is small-flaked and has  delicious flavor. It is particularly well adapted to use in casseroles, chowders and : creamed  dishes in which the fish retains  its identity.  Most economical salmon is the  Chum or Keta. The Chum is a  large fish, rather coarse in texture and pale in color. Nevertheless, it has good flavor and is  just as nutritious as the other  varieties. It is sold principally  in canned form and is ideal for  salmon cakes, casseroles " and  other dishes where the color of  the fish is not of prime importance. .  The five varieties of Pacific  salmon comprise one of the'most  important fish groups in the Canadian-fisheries. For real "eating  pleasure few foods surpass .them.

Law of survival  In nature the law of survival  is seldom more easily observed  than in the forces which dictate  nesting habits of wild birds.  Where they commonly cover  their nests while temporarily absent or where the nests are naturally concealed from view by  darkness or vegetation, the eggs  are usually white, whereas' species that nest more or less, in  the open generally lay colored  or mottled eggs less visible to  prying eyes from above.  The same forces operate to  determine the number of eggs in  a clutch. Some of the penguins,  albatrosses and other sea birds  that nest in inaccessible place?  lay only one egg. Wild ducks and  other game birds with many  enemies lay as much as 15 or  more eggs at.a time. Most song  birds lay from three to five,  while hawks and owls adjust to  local- conditions by laying more  eggs when their prey is plentiful.  If not harvested in time,  trees die of disease and old a,g?  laud, ftod a qiu-ieit grave on the  forest'floor.

What does  it take to start the family car  that's spent the night outside or  in an unheated garage? Here  are a few starting tips from Carol  Lane, Women's Travel Director  for Shell Oil. .  Don't try to start with all the  electrical accessories turned oft.  They put an additional drain on  the battery. - 7 .  Don't "grind" the starter. Even half a minute of this.can draih  a new battery, if the engine  doesn't start fast, turn off th\?  ignition and wait a minute before trying again.  Don't pump the gas pedal. This  only floods the engine. Push the  accelerator to the floor once, let  it up half way and engage the  starter.'  Be sure your car isready for  cold weather. That means antir  freeze, the right grade oil, and  a fully charged battery. ���  And a final idea for motorists  in really cold climates: if the  car's outside or in an unheated  parage, leave a lighted lamjj)  bulb under the hood, during the  night. It gives enough heat to  help  ease starting.  aenvvnq qott with,..

Energized by the sun, they manufacture vast quantities of wood and  chemicals from air, water and  various elements that occur in  the soil.  Since wood is around 50 percent pure cellulose in fibre form"  trees are the most practical  source of this material for industrial and commercial use.
