The  question whether   the  school board should decentralize  byi building small schools for the  lime being or centralize by building in Gibsons a four room  school which could be-expanded  was answered Moriday night at a  public meeting attended by 5ft  persons in the School hall in  Gibsons.  This meeting called by the Gib.  sons Elementary school PTA invited school board officials lo  plaice before the public problems  surrounding future expansion of  school accommodation.  With a show of hands towards  th$ end of the meeting at least  60v percent favored centralized  construction., Not more than six  hands were raised for decentralization.     ��� ���;..';  .School board officials present  included.

Johnson, department  of education, Allan Child, Gibsons  Elementary school principal and  Mr. Spicer, board chairman with  Mrs. L. Inglis as chairman, all  addressed the meeting.  Mr. Johnson explained the  school accommodation situation  within the board's area, revealing the most pressing, problem  existed in Gibsons area. He was  of the opinion Gibsons needed for  the next three year period at  least four classrooms for elementary grades. The education department, he said, would not allow building programs to" go beyond a three year period.  During the question period it  was revealed the board was giving consideration to a plebiscite  in the $250,000 range to cover required classroom expansion.  Whjle there has been a working  copy prepared covering what the  board desires, which is now in  the hands of officials in Victoria,  there is no indication yet that  the department will accede to  the board's request.  Establishment of kindergartens  was also advocated by PTA mem.  bers and a show of hands sup;  ported them.  For the time being the board  has in mind, the meeting was told  the obtaining of necessary land  next to the Elementary school in  Gibsons to allow for expansion in  the years to coirie. It was also  suggested following remarks, from,  the floor that an activity hall  could be acquired when new  building occurred at the Elementary School- -".---  The meeting was informed that  Ihe proposed $250,000 plebiscite  would cover a number of projects  in the area put until the department in Victoria had given its  sanction to the program board  members were unable to say  what will be done eventually.

To  ke��p readers of the Coast News  informed, here are the latest developments.  A note of optimism appeared in  Reeve Ray Weaver's voice as he  reported to council a visit with  Highways Minister Phil Gaglardi* thelP6well;River?,News says.;.  llX^tif). .:��� Yi^pi$_o,?Y^me XXmlhea��  "Weaver ''rascussed   a   hoped-for  ferry. link between.

Gaglardi   apparently   showed   more -  than casual interest in both problems and  promised a statement  by the end of the year.  Reeve Weaver said there was  nothing standing in the way of a  private operator putting in a ferry link --. -but said Gaglardi?  would riot give a five-year guar--  aritee of no. opposition if a private company did operi opera-,  tioris.  O. H.

He added that in his  opinion Coast Ferries was the  _nly company .with enough . experience to make such a run pay.  Local Chamber of Commerce  members, at their meeting, were  told:   ���  "The hrief regarding the PR-  Comox ferry service was read  and rspoken to by Reeve Ray  Weaver.

"In summary, the delegation  felt that the meeting was highly  successful in every aspect, and  the highways minister congrat-..  ulated the group for presenting  facts that were of a helpful, con- [  structive nature.  "Mr. Gaglardi asked the dele- .  gation to leave the request for a  ferry service directly in his  hands. ..He promised that he  would immediately, start a factfinding investigation on the matter and that he would then pursue the matter fully. He also  promised that he would personally introduce the subject and '  speak to it at the next finance  committee meeting, at which the  premier would preside.

School Trustees Association  endorsed a resolution that the association will seek legislation to  amend a section of the Public Schools act which would omit any ref-:  erence to municipal participation such as the right to review school  board budgets and seek arbitration.  Municipal councils have a government check on their operations  through the department of municipal affairs and the school board  through the department of education.  It is the municipal organization which must provide the money for  school boards. In most cases the school tax is usually greater than  the municipal tax. In the case of Gibsons arid Sechelt it is double  the municipal tax.  Gibsons- is striving to keep its tax collection within* $12,500 because of a regulation in the Tuberculosis Act which states that if  council collects more than $12,500 through municipal taxation it must  assume Tuberculosis act costs for TB patients. These costs can become a serious matter.  On one hand we have a municipal council curtailing revenue and  expenditures while a school board, quite naturally in an expanding  area, needs more and more money which the municipality must collect. It is mandatory that the municipality collects for the school  board.  Perhaps the reader can now see why municipalities are not too  happy about the school trustee association's aim to have municipalities as a collection agency with no right to review school board budgets or ask for arbitration. -       ���  Much can be said about both sides of the problem but until some  better arrangement is made, say a wholly provincial government  financing of education,* municipalities who are. responsible for handling the taxpayers' money over to school boards should have some  means of close scrutiny and possible action when the need  arises.  The Santa Claus spirit  A little girl named Virginia once asked if there was a Santa  Claus. A press release issued by the Children's hospital answers the  question.  The Christmas spirit at this hospital started somewhere about  Decemlber 1 and warmed up distinctly in the carolling section when  a battle-scarred piano which miraculously stood up to being pushed  from the staff dining room to a morning in one wing and the'afternoon  in another, to be awaited by small moppets who watched for the daily  visit of the hospital administrator H. P. J. Gunn with demands of  "Please play the piano for us."  In the meantime the toy room to which gifts are directed sees  the staff selecting presents for the children, from people who still  remember the miracle of Christmas morning. A former member of  the board of directors, H. G. Malcolmson will be on hand for their  distribution on Christmas Day.  Morals of a fish surveyed  a  A recent reprint of a book by  Dr. Brian' Curtis is designed to  make the results of years of1 scientific research and experimentation available to the layman in  a manner "both understandable  and interesting. ' *_  ' y  The book presents an up-to-date  survey of what is known about  the physiology^ growth,- repro-  ductiori and habits of the-fish Y It  ���srac^iihi'  Prepared by the Research Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA   CANADIAN*  Did last century. Canadians     X  enjoy moving pictures? *3  Yes, and they literally were  moving pictures. ; These entertainments were exhibits called  panoramas. A panorama was*, a  painting ori a very long canvas.  It was wound off one drum arid  on another while the audience admired the moving canvas between the two drums. Panoramic  displays originated in Britain in  the 18th century and became  popular in Victorian timies on  this continent. Panoramas 'of  great battles, Jike Gettysburg, or  of geographic regions, such as  the Holy Land, toured Canadian  provinces.* A related kind of exhibit was the cyclorama, a large  and stationary canvas mounted  on the walls of a large room.  Today, Canada's best-known surviving cyclorama is that at Ste.  Anne de Beaupre, P.Q. It shows  the Holy Land. In a sense, the  motion picture and television entertainments of today are? descendants; of panorama ��� particularly so, since the rise of the  wide screen cinema. y  In which direction does the  spade-foot  toad  tunnel?  Backwards. This native of British Columbia has special tubercles on its hind feet that permit  it to dig tunnnels underground ���  but only in reverse. The odd  creature, despite its name, is not  a true toad, although it belongs  to the amphibian family. One of  its relatives is the tailed toad,  so-called because of the "tail"  owned by males of the species.  It .is found only in western North  America, including British Columbia and in New Zealand. Canada has several species of toad;  ranging as far north as James  Bay, central Labrador and the  Northwest Territories. One species, Fowler's toad, lives only irr  southern Ontario, along the  shores of Lake Erie and Huron.  Gems of Thought  Childhood has   no forebodings.  George Eliot.

All nature lovers, whether specialists,  amateur scientists, sportsmen,  aquarium owners, or beginning  biology pr zoology students, wnl  find this a fascinating introduction to the world of the fish.  Dr. Curtis was one of the foremost ichthyologists and a dedicated sportsman. His object was  to bring the great fund of knowledge about fish ..out, of the laboratories and scientific libraries in  which it is stored and turn it  over, in suitable form, to those  seeking for knowledge. In the  opening chapter, he says, "If  fish were all just alike, writing  about them would be a great deal  easier than it is. They differ,  sometimes radically. It is impossible to make universal statements about fish; it is impossible to use the words 'always,'  'all,' 'never,' 'none,' when talking  about them. Some of the differences are important, but many  are unimportant, and if we tried  to treat them all, we should never end. . .Let it be accepted as  our only rule that there is no  statement in this book to which  there are not some exceptions."  Among the fascinating item s  in the book are these facts: fish  rarely chew their food, but.swallow it whole; most salt 'water fish  actually drink water; m^ny fish  can change their color, although  ' blind fish can't; the cod has as  many as nine million children at  one time; the tuna is the fastest  fish, and has been?clocked; at  thirty miles an hour. TheYeel  blinds himself with his own "electric.ray"; fish have no eyelids;  the swordtail female becomes  the father of her own grandchildren by changing sex after gi.v  LAND   ACT  NOTICE OF INTENTION TO  APPLY TO LEASE LAND  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver, in the . province of  British Columbia rind situate  Skardon Islands?

One can imagine  the wrath of the numerous clans boiling over with at any moment  diplomatic relations with the Sassenachs to the south being broken.  How democratic can you get when you suggest a kilt that can  be worn by the lowliest Sassenach? It would be a kilt made from  ordinary tweed without any design on it. Imagine a Cockney sporting  his tweed kilt swanking his way along Edinburgh streets. Just how  democratic can you get? >  The idea has been suggested, naturally, by a Sassenach!

The total cost of .this program,  so far, has been $442,000,000. Of  this the federal government is  paying no less than $235,000,000.

During migrations, usually on foggy or stormy  nights, there is also considerable  destruction to birds caused by  their flying against certain lighthouses to which, they have been  attracted by the powerful light.  In addition to these, agents of  destruction the bird's natural  enemies are always active. Crows  and magpies feed upon the eggs  and. nestlings of small birds, as  alsb?do snakes,? While Cooper's  hawks and sharp-shinned havvks  are deadly enemies. The introduced brown rat, also squirrels,  chipmunks and white-footed mice  destroy large quantities of eggs,  and large animals, such as skunks  arid coyotes, will snap up such  delicacies as a nestful? Of fledgling meadowlarks or. of other  ground-nesting species. ...  , ������:��� - Goshawks arid homedv owls destroy : grouse and in the winter  months take* a heavy toll- of  pheasants on the lowlands. The  March hawk, while feeding largely on mice, frogs and shakes, has  often been convicted of killing  valuable birds.  EDIBLE BARK  While the porcupine and the  beaver thrive well on the rind  of trees it is not generally known  that tree bark is edible and that  the inner bark of such trees as  long been in use as food by man-  hemlock and* lodge-pole pine has  kind in Canada. Indians of the  west coast ate freely of a * mixture Of bark and oil, the latter  obtained from a small kind of  sprat ' called Oolichan. The sap  of the pine tree is said to have  a pleasant orange flavor.  >VfetchQut/  i"--  r*n.
