This budget is prepared to indicate the feasibility of operating  a new hospital.  Approval of such estimates is  necessary before the money bylaw Yean; be * presented to landowners for approval: This stage  of the hospital development is  tedious and also a slow process  yet r essential because the cost of  building and operating a new  hospital must be kept within v  these estimates.  Once these estimates have  been approved the money bylaw  will be presented to landowners  for approval. This will be the  last major step before the actual  construction. Approval of the  money bylaw will be followed by  the preparation of detailed plans,  calling for tenders and the beginning of construction. 7  Worley to speak  Ron Worley, assistant general  manager of the BiC.

A three-plan Health Centre for  Gibsons was placed before municipal council Tuesday night for  exploratory purposes. The centre  which was. first proposed/ two  years ago by the Kinsmen Club  of Gibsons would be built on  South Fletcher road on municipal property which now includes  Gibsons Public Library.  The Kinsmen delegation included the president, Tom Parker,  also Charles Mandelkau, George  . Hunter and Eric Prittie who have  worked On "this project since its  inception Ytwo. years -ago, and  Paul Smith of the architect firm  of Smith and McCulloch, Vancouver., Y v  .  Thre plans *were offeredj. one  a total health centre and. the sec- ���  ond which would include a muni-  ..' cipal 'office and a meeting hall  ,. on .the: lower level 'of the two  storey building.

Council decided to reply to a  leter from W. B. MacDonald,  provincial sanitarian for the-area  concerning garbage disposal, and  express pleasure at the fact provincial authorities are showing  greater interest in unorganized'  area garbage disposal problems.  The letter dealt with indiscriminate dumping o. garbage at unauthorized places.  . Accounts totalling $1,494.04  were ordered paid with $788.61  for general "purposes and the remainder for roads, fire protection, garbage arid water capital.  On the problem of matching a  provincial grant covering - local  recreation commission expenses  some members of council were  of the opinion that in the long run  it   looked   as  though  provincial  VISITOR FROM SUDBURY  Edgar T. Austin of Sudbury,  Ont., was a recent visitor at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. J.

At present the provincial recreational authorities will match  the amount contributed by municipal councils, Further talks on  the problem will take place with  recreation  committee   members.  Councillor Wes Hodgson reported May 9 as a possible date  for the opening of: the - Sechelt-  Gibsons Municipal Airport at  Wilson Creek. Plans are proceeding to have YLt.-Gov. : Pearkes  perform the opening ceremonies.  When approval of theY school  board budget was under discussion it was suggested that some  official of the school board should  appear before council and explain the budget each year so  council would be able to. view  the budget in a more understandable 'manner.

The salaries paid will now be comparable with those in our neighboring district and will make this area more attractive to well-qualified teachers.  The signing of this contract has been a mutual effort on the part  of the Sechelt Teachers' Association and the Board to improve th*  standard of education in this district.

Sechelt School District is well on its way to becoming a million  dollar operation in education. It has not yet reached that figure but  with the 1954 budget at $319,603 and the 1962 budget at $825,131, it  is likely not too many years will go by before the million dollar mark  is reached.  There are now 14 schools with an overall staff including teachers  and administration of at least 90 persons. Two-thirds of the budget  is used on what can be termed fixed expenses, that of salaries, wages  and debt service.  The remaining one-third is utilized for transportation costs, or  school buses when you want to make a complaint; fuel, light and  water, also repairs and maintenance, with some left over, for capital  expense.  By the time the budget has been apportioned to salaries, debt  services, transportation, repairs and maintenance, fuel, light and  water and capital expense, there is something slightly over $70,000  for miscellaneous expenditure during the year. In connection with  the miscellaneous amount left over in this year's budget, it is lower  than last year when the amount was $102,657.  When it comes to paring a budget for this or any school district  these days there is not too much room for a school board to operate  in when fixed expenses and general maintenance costs have been  estimated. With about a quarter of any budget left to cover week to  week and unforseen expenses the room for cutting down when necessities are concerned reaches the vanishing point.  In a growing community faced with increasing school costs the*  path of school board trustees is not strewn with roses. Changing departmental policy throws in a few stumbling blocks, too.  However school trustees can obtain solace by recalling the words  of H. G. Wells before the atomic age was evident. Mr.r Wells said human history becomes more and more a race between education and,  catastrophe!  Art in merchandising  Few doubt that merchandising is an art.  Belief is fortified by imagination of that restauranteur who lists  Chinese Shepherd's Pie on his menu. By topping hash with noodles  instead of the more usual mashed potato he brings a touch of the  mysterious East to his establishment.  In the wonderful world of the menu, the adjective is the great  optimist, never daunted by past disappointments. No matter what the  vegetable soup was like yesterday, today it is going to be fresh vegetable soup. Ever so limp, the coleslaw is crisp. In spite of sad experiences with peas, this time they are garden green. All menu beef  is choice. Muffins naturally are home made. In the wonderland of the  menu, pastry is flaky and griddle cakes are old-fashioned.  One of Oxford Dictionary's definitions of adjective is: not standing by itself. In the menu world, nouns lean on adjectives and are  carried up by adjectives to tree-ripened heights of enthusiasm. There  is much good in this. Those who are born glum, or who have dined  out too much ��� these may be expected to complain; but it is commendable that the mass of poor, stricken humanity has the spirit to  ask expectantly for the tempting dessert.

May it hold  igood health and happiness for  .you home folks. I know that  so many of my own dreams  have .yome true this past year  that I often say to myself, how  can  one  person be  so  lucky?  You've; never seen such  weaflher in ypur life! As I  write this by the window the,  Ibirds are singing, the palms.are  swaying in' the soft trade  winds, and the girls are splashing ih the pool. Just like a  glorious summer's dayi back*  home, only the calendar says  fit's January.  You should hear the birds'  singing. Learning about the different songsters I was surprised to know that many of .them  foave been imported. It seems a  few years back when a group  of public spirited women in  Honolulu bemoaned the. absence of song birds in their  gardens, they didn't just moan;  they did something about it.  Organizing into a group under the name of Hui (organization) Manu (bird) they undertook the work and expense of  ���Importing pairs of song birds,  releasing them where they: i_i>p-  ed the birds would survive and  multiple*]. and many have. Lin-  thets, skylarks and. mock'ing  birds are all here, as well as  roejiros from Japan and leior.h-  _*ix from India. Oh yes, and red  cardinals from North America  (we saw o:~.e at Irving's Landing about tihree years ago).  Anyway, you can imagine the  color and song these birds add  to an already lush background?  I know you will be interestedly awaiting my. description  of my holiday trip to the neighboring island of Kauai in connection with the invitation I  ;ii'ad to spend my. Christmas vacation at the Kauai Surf, a new  resort on Kauai Island, as the  guest of Mr. and Mrs. Child,  parents of one of my pupils. It  was truly a perfect holiday!  I never thought I- would see  anything lovelier than . Oahu,  the island on which Honolulu  is located, but 1 have and it's  Kauai, called the Garden Island because it is completely  covered with greenery and  flowers. I don't think it is any  exaggeration  to  describe it as  a little bit of heaven on earth,  with    a     timeless beauty that  -cannot be conveyed by. words,  at least my words.  The Childs took me over  every mile of the island, to  fabulous Waimea Canyon and  several historic sites, including  the place where Captain Cook  first landed.  One day we went to Hanalei  Plantation' which ��� is whero  South Pacific was filmed. Do  you remember how we enthused over the scenery in that  ���film? Imagine how fantastic it  is to really see it.  I walked along the beach  wihere they filmed the song  Bali Hai and couldn't believe  I was ��� where I Twas!

In dense forest, all the .way>  from Newfoundland to the Pacific. This shy animal is a member of the weasel family. Smaller than a house cat, it is a  good climber, preying on squirrels, birds, rabbits and mice.  It also eaits nuts and berries.  Even nowadays, most marten  furs come from trapped animals, few from fur farms.  The marten's fur is a rich  brown, darker on legs and tail,  with a reddish, patch on the  breast. The fur has fluctuated  greatly in price, historically  changing from as little as $7 to  as much as $56 within a year.  What are the most likely ages  for marriage in Canada?  For men, 21 to 25; for women, 18 to 22. Almost half of  Canadian brides and bridegrooms are in these age groups.  In a. typical .recent year almost  92 percent of persons marrying  had not previously been wed.  Five percent bad been widowed; the remaining three percent  divtorced. More than 70 percent  of all marriages in Canada are  (between persons of the same religious affiliation.  Who /established Ihe first school  in ihe Canadian  arctic?  Kris Klerigenberg. A Dane,  who left home at 15 to sail the  Seven Seas in 1884. He married an Alaskan [Eskimo girl  and lived as an Eskimo himself. He later moved to Vic?*  toria Land in the Canadian  Arctiq, became a Canadian  citizen and established a trading post. For the education of  his own and neighboring children, Klengenberg founded the  first school' in Canada's Far  North.  The first producing mine  was the Tough Oakes from  which ore was ifreighted by  ctanoe and portage to nearby  Swastika. This ore averaged  $457 a ton >and sparked a gold  rush. Today, 12 producing  mines are strung along its Golden Mile.  Which, governor married his  enemy's widow?  Charles de Da Tour. In 1631  {La Tour built Fort La Tour at  the mouth of the St. John River.  Raziilly, French Goverrifor of  Acadia died a few yiears later  iand two lieutenant governors  v/ere commissioned in his place   La Tour and Charles d'Aul-  nay Charnisay of Port Royal.  Conflict developed. La Tour attacked Port Royal in 1643.  Twio years later Gharniaay attacked Fort La Tour in La  Tours absentee. Madame La  Tour conducted the defence but  was forced to surrender. The  garrison was massacred and  Madame La Tour died soon afterwards. La Tour fled, but returned after Charnesay's death  in 1650 and later married his  rival's widow.  By TONY GARGRAVE, M.L.A.  I remember the last few days  of the 1960 Provincial election  well. It was early in September,  only two days before polling  day. It was a Saturday and the  election was on the : following  Monday. I was holding a meeting at Stillwater, just south of  Powell River.  It was a* pleasant fall evening  and as we entered the little  community hall we were accosted by Social Crediters carrying  copies of the Saturday Vancouver Daily Province. In the front  page lead story, Frank McMahon  president v of Westcoast Transmission, a gas pipeline company,  was threatening the voters of the  province that a CCF. victory  would wreck vast projects and  cost 10,000 jobs.  Frank McMahon and the Social Credit party won that election. Later Mr. McMahon said  his warning did the trick. Mr.  Frank McMahon is a pipeline  promoter. He built the Westcoast  Transmission gas pipeline, and  later, after the election." built  the Western Pacific oil pipeline.  He made plenty, out of both projects.'-^"'        Y        ':���'..    /���  ."*���' .  The new British Columbia pipeline scandal concerns these, two  parallel pipelines, one bringing  natural gas from the north,' tho  other bringing crude oil from the  north.  In Mr. ������ McMahOn's first pipeline venture he and his friends  distributed to themselves 650,000  shares of West Coast Transmission stock, at five cents apiece.  The public had no opportunity  to buy those shares . at those  prices. The>same shares are now  selling for $23 apiece.  The federal Royal Commission  on Energy, the Borden Commission, specifically criticized. West  Coast Transmission for the huge.  profits it gave to promoters  through stock options. Briefly,  the Borden Commission said that  Mr. McMahon and his friends  got too much for doing too little.  At the first legislative session,  after the election, Kenneth Kier-  nan, minister of mines and petroleum resources, announced to the  legislature that Frank McMahon  had been given a new concession for the Western Pacific oil  pipeline. The oil pipeline Western Pacific was to run parallel  to the old natural gas pipeline.  West coast Transmsision.  Mr. Kiernan, whom I believe  to be a minister of ability and  integrity, promised there would  be no similar stock options as  occurred in the natural gas pipeline. We took Mr. Kiernan at his  Gems of Thought  PEACE OF MIND  When we do not find peatce  of mind in ourselves it is useless to look for it  elsewhere.  ���La Rochefoucaulk  To attain- peace and holiness  is to recognize the divine presence and allness.  ���Mary Baker Eddy  All  over  the   world people  are seeking, peace, of mind, but  Ihere dan be no peace of tmind ������  without strength; of mind.  ���Eric B. Gutkind  Nothing can "bring you peace  but yourself; nothing can bring  you peace but the triumph of  principles.  ���Ralph Waldo Emersion  Peace is not absence of war,  it is a virtue, a store of mind,  c disposition for benevolence,  confidence, justice.  ���Baruch Spinoza  Peace is rarely denied to the  peaceful.���Johann   Schiller  word.  We now learn that Western Pacific gave to West Coast Transmission 750,000 shares of Western Pacific stock to allow the  crude oil pipeline to use 20 feet  of the natural gas pipeline's  right-of-way. These shares had a  value of $11,250,000. The crude  oil pipeline had to obtain from  the government an additional 40  feet of right-of-way, making a  total 60 feet wide swath.  Alex MacDonald (NDP - Vancouver East) said in the legislature, that this was a political  "pay-off. "Twenty foot of right-  of-way is worth something but  it is not worth $11,250,000. Actually, Mr. Frank McMahon and  his friends own both companies.  No wonder Mr. Frank McMahon likes this government. He  hasn't provided 10^000 jobs for  the people of British Columbia  but he has provided $11,250,000  for himself and his friends.  Alex MacDonald, in his oil expose, told the legislature that Mr.  McMahon's West Coast Transmission company also got stock  options on 50,000 shares of Western Pacific, at $5 apiece. This  was another . surei-fire,.:: no riskk  tax free capital gain; Already ���  these shares show a profit of  over $500,000.  A further 655,000 shares in  Western. Pacific were issued to  individuals at $5, which also represents an additional profit on  today's market for the promoters  of around $7,000,000.  All these profits were made by  the insiders, the promoters who  get in on the main floor. As Mr.  MacDonald has said, the Social  Credit government 'at Victoria  has been a mother to Mr. Frank  McMahon.  All this increases the final cost  of natural gas and oil to the consumer. It is also unfair ..to the  legitimate investor Who invests  his money for a fair return but  has his profits watered down by  stock options and costly right-of-  way transactions.  shores  girls 5, 7 and 8 years old, are  a delight to be with and just  darling children.

In English usage lumber is generally applied to that clutter of old and  discarded household '. items  which accumulate over the  years in attics and lumber  rooms. In the Boston of Coiorii-  al days it was their habit in  referring to the logs, timber  and boards which littered the  harbor front to use the term  Numbered up. Inevitably, the  Colonials came to refer to such  timber simply as lumber.  jCfhurch   (Chuckles   by CARTWRIGHT  "I hope you realize what we're doing is low and  sneaky, Gerald ���. giving our business fa cr.2 c5 father's competitors !'k_^-_:���= week s  Waiter's cold weather gives  all a hearty appetite: . .,.;so  plan your menus accordingly.

There is no  use polishing up a bad habit or  an improper delivery until it  has become a permanent part  of your bowling game.  Take time out once in awhile  to check that you aren't making any ot�� these frequent er-.  rors that beginners often develop. Here are 10 of the most  common mistakes to look  for:  1. Net standing in the same  place every time. Make a practice of always starting your delivery fr'om. the same place on  the approach.  2. Lack of coordination. At  ithe end of your approach, your  hands, feet and body should all  be moving forward together. If  you are having trouble getting  all your m'otions properly timed, concentrate on Starting the  ball in motion first wirtih the  pushaway; you'll find your  foot following naturally a split  second later.  3. Not using the same number of steps each time. Try to  use either a three-step or a four-  step approach.  4. Not getting set properly  for the approach. Many beginners just pick up the ball from  the rack and start running. After you have' picked up the  ball, take your position on th.  approach standing erect and  facing the pins���'and then stop  and think for a moment about  what you are going to dto.  tcstor's benches,pacing oJK.jthe  raimber cf steps you normally  use, and going through all the  motions o��-*a real delivery The  _pot where yi -,����� slide ends is  ..the spot you should use as a  starting position. Never use a  real ball while you are doing  this,' however ���-It is almost  si re to slip out of your hand,  and might injure someone.  8. Rolling the ball over the  foul line. The ball should first  touch the lane 10 - 12 inches  past the foul line.  9. Twisting the wrist. Your  wrist should be kept straight  when the ball is released. You'll  f nd spot bowling helps over-  *c me this de_.ct, for there is  less tendency Vo> flip the wrist  when you are rolling over ,a  (target 12 feet away than if you  are mentally retching for a far-  get 60 feet away.  10. Not holding the ball in  the correct position. Use both  your hands to bold the ball 'before starting delivery, gripping  with yfour rigfrt hand and  "steadying it with yoor left  band. Hold tie ball chest high.

'fijr JACK SHERIDAN  M_  ire  mm  WHEN VOlTRfHURTING \  Ferry service discussed by Gargrave  During the legislature throne  debate on Thurs., Feb. 8, Tony  Gargrave, MLA, congratulated  the government on the establishment of a provincially owned integrated ferry service in British  Columbia.  "Ferry services dominate the  transportation picture in the Mac.  kenzie riding," he told the House.  "The present ferry service on  Howe Sound is woefully inadequate. We need supplemental  weekend service in the summer  now."  He told his fellow legislators  that the present Black Ball vessels on Howe Sound and Jervis  Inlet were old; slow and inefficient. He also criticized the poor  standard of washroom facilities  aboard the vessels.  He noted the government stat-  Book presents  church problems  Problems confronting the  modern Christian world are  discussed by leading churchmen in a book The Church in  the 60's, to be published this  spring, in preparation for a 10-  day Anglican Congress Aug. 13-  25 in Canada in 1963.  Subjects chosen for the.  book's 10 chapters will provide  a comprehensive background  for discussions and deliberations of the congress. At the  Same time they will prove valuable for church members generally, particularly at the parochial level. A leader's guide  to accompany the book, will include expert guidance for  groups exploring these durrent  religious, political and cultural  Kballenges.  The Church in the 60's was  initiated by R��. Rev. G. N. Lux-  ton, Bishop of Huron, in his  capacity as chairman of the  Anglican Congress editorial  committee, and ds edited by  iRev. Philip Jefferson, editorial  Secretary of the General Synod  ���department of religious educa-  tooru  ed that  additional  vessels  were  going to be placed on the Vancouver  to Naniamo run. of  the  Toll Authority ferry service. He  drew to the attention of��� the government that Victoria and Nanaimo was already well serviced  with feny vessels. Nanaimo receives now between the CPR and  the Toll Authority, 14 trips each  way daily.  "We need improved  service   before  Nanaimo does,"  he   said.   "At   least   the   Howe  Sound run pays for itself."  He warned the government  that the vessels already on the  run were so old that he doubted  whether' they would hold together until they were replaced.-  There have been a number of  breakdowns of vessels on these  two  runs.  Mr. Gargrave said during the  debate, that at times there was  intolerable congestion at Langdale and Horseshoe Bay on the  Howe Sound route. It is affecting land values and people's tem-  Peninsula  Phone growth continues  Telephones in operation at the  end of 1961 in the area Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet including Gambier Island, totalled 2272, an increase of 190 for the year.  B.C. Telephone Company records show that Gibsons exchange  had 1,071 for an increase of 27;  Port Mellon 136, up 13; Pender  Harbour 310, up 31 and Sechelt,  755, up 119.  British Columbia Telephone  system passed the 90 percent  mark in number of dial phones  in use during 1961, with a net increase   of 20,992  instruments  of  all types,  for a  grand total   of  568,022 at the-end of the year.  The net increase in total telephones was the result of .167.904  connections and 146,912 disconnections, according to a company  report.       "  During the same period average  business   day  local   calling  throughout    the    360,000   square  mile   system   rose   to   3,565,000,  compared with 3,390,000 in 1960.

FIZZING ICE CUBES  Bottle of carbonated beverages recommend the freezing of  'carbonated beverages instead of  water for ice cubes. They take  ���less time to freeze than plain  water and although the cubes  'seem to be softer than ordinary  ice they actually last as long  or longer. As they melt, they  .tumble and bubble, keeping  your punch or tall drink lively  and cold to the very last drop.  Blink your lights at night to  warn animals on the road. A  steady beam will hypnotize  them into immobility. Warn  them of your approach in the  daytime by honking your horn.  Report fire pronto  Buy a fire extinguisher for  your home (y|our local fire de"-  partment will advise you as to  the best type) and learn how  to use it properly.  Report any fire immediately.  If a fire starts, have all occupants leave the house before  you begin fire-fighting operations.  Always leave baby sitters  with complete instructions on  what to do in case of fire.  At first sign of fire close all  doors and windows except  those needed for escape.  . Do not wait to dress children; simply wrap them in  blankets.  Keep exits clear and unobstructed bty; boxes or furniture.

Oil slick victim recovers  One innocent little victim of  Georgia Strait oil sludge climbed ashore at Roberts Creek and  .stood in a state of abjection in  the vicinity of two small boys,  Greg Mackenzie and Dave Fos-  sett who promptly. came to its  rescue.  Sechelt will have  Heaven on Earth  The monthly meeting of Sechelt Auxiliary to the Hospital  was held Thurs., Feb. 8 with a  good attendance,- Mrs. C. Connor  presiding. Mrs. Connor will represent the auxiliary at a spring  meeting of the Lower Mainland  regional division to be held at;  St. Mary's Hospital in New West-!  minster on March 2.  Mrs. Critchell, director of the  drama group announced that Sat-  April 7 was the date set for the  presentation in Sechelt tof ��� the  play Heaven on Earth, together  with two plays by the Gibsons  Drama group under the direction  of Mrs. Sleep of Gower Point. *  It is understood that the three  plays will also be presented oii  Sat., March 31 in Gibsons.  This combined effort Of the  two auxiliaries should be of considerable interest to communities from Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour, as all the players arc  local residents, and the funds to.  be raised are for a worthy cause.  Sechelt members are asked to  keep the gift box in mind; so far  the response has been gratify  Jhg. Members are also urged to  keep favorite recipes coming in.  Tea was served after the meeting and snapshots taken on Deck  14 were'shown. The next meeting will be held on Thurs., March  8 in St. Hilda's Hall at 2 p.m. !  Enlisting the aid of Rick Marsh  they thoroughly washed the little fellow with warm water and  soap in an attempt to cleanse  his feathers of oil. Having been  a diver all his life he found  walking nigh impossible, but he.  took kindly to being toted and  seemed pleased with a box-home  on the MacKenzie porch. He also  took pleasure in gulping down  quantities of sardines and other  eatables. . Curious canines worried him not at all. A well direct  ed peck on the;nose left him in  undisputed control of.the situation.  On the following day he enjoyed another warm bath. Bv  now the soft down on his breast  was beginning to fluff out again  and he demonstrated his gratitude by attempting to enter the  house and by pecking at the door  Now, following lanolin rub-  downs by the SPCA, he is at  home in Lissiman's bird sanctuary.

'     k    ��� ���  IS YOUR HOME SAFE? _..  Is your Jh-ild safe at homi*-  Perhaps ypu resert this question and consider it a silly one.  Eut research shows that far too  many people, including children, lose their lives or iaro  srriously injured, not in some  l-ublic place, but right at home.  Each autumn Canadians- are  e.iucated in f|j*c prevention.  Surely one of ;h> most horrible  ways to die is to be burned.  Fire accounts for 23 percent of  accidental home fatalities in  Canada.  In age distribution, five percent were babies, 22 per-ent  were under five years, 19 percent under 15 years.  *4*>.

In  10 years, 22,000 persons lost  'tilieir lives, in accideri'ts at  home.

Infant deaths from this  cause 84 percent of the total  mortality; M!ost of these deaths  took place in a cot, carriage or  cradle. Smothering is not near-  lly so great a danger as this  food suffocation.  By  Nancy Cleaver  Copyrighted  These are statistics which  warn parents to take special  precautions to prevent food cr  niecJianiclal suffocation. Ia oth-  i*r accidents -3u.ch as drowning  it is surprising to learn lha- 5 J  percent of drownings occurred  at home.  *   ��� *    *  The pre-school child (1 to 5  year) made up no less than 60  .���percent of the total home  drownings, babies about four  percent. Some cf these accidents took place in bath tubs,  others in ponds or wells or  deep ditches on the home  grounds.  Accidental falls account for  39 percent of home, fatalities.  After the age of 50 this is an .  increasing threat, but under the  age of five it is also a very  real danger. Victims of about  two percent of the fatal falls  were babies, three percent were  email children under five years.  Contrary to the general trend  of sex in acciiderabs, more girls  and women die from falls than  >bcys and men.  *���   * '.���'*  One of the most important  tasks of parents is to provide  a ,safe environment for their  children, and a second task is  to'teach safety by example and  by instruction.

Could it have occurred ia  our home?"  In the excellent book "The  Canadian Mother and Child,"  published by the Department  of National Health and Welfare,  Ottawa, is this sound advice:  '���The attitude towards accidents is to be constantly on  guard to prevent them. Take  steps to remove all obvious  risks, then keep an eye on your  child witthout creating ten-  teiens."  Weed destroyers  Small birds perform an important function controlling  the spread of noxious weeds.  Many species are busy on this  iuseful task right now. From  early autumn until spring they  live briefly on weed seeds. The  seeds of many common and  harmful weeds were brought  from Europe mixed with the  seeds of grain and vegetables.  They have since spread over  the whole of Canada and no  matter how carefully the farmer cultivates his fields they are  waiting to spring up and kill  out the useful plants. Not only  do the birds eat the seeds  which remain on the plants,  ���but they scratch away the  snow to reach those that have  fallen to the ground. In this  way they are working for the  farmer in his constant fight  against another  enemy.
