Gibsons harbor 1963  project  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce decided at Monday night's annual meeting to  make improvement of Gibsons  harbor the chamber's project for  the year. The motion moved by  Ken McHeffey and seconded by  Ron Haig, arose out of discussion for the improvement of float  facilities.  Mr. McHeffey argued there  were' many aspects to a. harbor  improvement program which  cannot be worked out in one deal  so he felt that making it the pro-  *  *  ject of the year would produce a  better result.  Letters -were read at the meeting from '{jpther organizations signifying their support of the Gibsons chamber in its efforts to  get better harbor facilities and it  was when these letters were to  be referred to the next meeting  that Mr. McHeffey proposed his  project of the year, motion which  was passed without dissent. In  theN meantime Dal Triggs and  Walt Nygren are preparing a  brief on.the subject for Jack Davis, M:P., to use. ���������-���'  " ,   ' *     ?: ���-"'������    '���'������'  ���''���'������  Officers re-elected  Charles Mandelkau? of.

FARMERS'   INSTITUTE  Howe Sound Farmers' Institute annual meeting will take  place Friday; Feb. 1 starting at  8 p.m. in Kinsmen Hall on Gower Point road. Officials of the  institute invite any of the public  interested in this organization to  attend.  FIRE DEPT. MEETING  Gibsons and Area Volunteer  Fire department will hold its annual meeting Monday night in  Gibsons School Hall. There will  be a door prize. The meeting  will start at 8 p.m. and annual  reports will be received and discussed.  The meeting, held at Danny's  Dining Room where a smorgasbord dinner was served, saw  about 45 persons witness the installation of 1963 officers by R.  H. Kennett. The names of. the  officers  are in another column.  Les Peterson, author of the  Gibsons Landing Story, spoke on  the use of historical aspects r of  a community as a tourist attract  tion. He suggested scenery was  not the. reason why people journeyed to? Europe. In Italy they  see the Colosseum, in Greece its  ancient art, in Germany its Rhine  castles and so on. Howe /Sound  area has plenty of good scenery  to offer but it must make use of  its past in order to arouse the"  interest of visitors. Right now, he  said, near Langdale ferry? slip  lies the early home of Dr. Alex  Forbes, discoverer of the Brit-  tania Mine and also the mines'on  Texada Island. If this home was  in some state to they south', it  would be revered as an historical  site. Most people . do not even  know it is there. .    ���    ���  There were three periods to  be explored, Mr. Peterson said,  the early Indian period, the timber period and the area leading  up to the present. The fact J. S.  Woodsworth, founder of the CCF  party did a great deal of his  thinking in Gibsons area was  worthy of note, he thought.  While Gibsons was the gateway  to an area of beautiful scenery  it was also the gateway to an  historical past which should hot  be overlooked as a tourist attraction, Mr. Peterson argued.  When the meeting opened Mr.  C. P. Ballentine 'announced ?that  it was his 18th year as a mem-:  ber. ���������.���-���--������ -....;  Discussion arose on the naming  of the ferries. A Sechelt Queen  had been selected but there was  no -Gibsons Queens Also? it was  noted : thatYori^the new ?*niaps of:  thl^rfeTT^^  sons had been dropped off.-'It  was arranged that the ferry authority be writteri to, seeking first  that Gibsons be put back on /the ?  map and that directions should  read" Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons  via Langdale, also one of ithe  ferries be named Giibsons Queen.  Percy Lee reported on a meet-,  ing to discuss the Powell River  to Comox ferry proposal involving Capt. O. H. New of Coast  Ferries who plans to construct a,  32 car, 400 passenger ferry providing he can get assurance from  the provincial government it  would not set up competition with  him later on Y Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce along with other  boards and chambers supported  Mr. New in his efforts to get the  ferry line started.

Tidball who is leaving the area,  selected Don Macklam, who was  fqrced to retire from the school  board as a trustee due to a  change of residence.

With this fine slate of officers, a very happy and successful year is  anticipated.  What to do with Sechelt's  building bylaw and its clauses  covering car parking was  brought before Sechelt municipal  council at its meeting on Wednesday night of last week.  Councillor William Swain was  of the opinion that the parking  aspects of the bylaw which require an almost a 3-1 ratio of  footage, three for parking and  one for building in, order to comply with its regulations, was.  "hampering construction.  He was of the opinion that  something should be done as the  bylaw was too severe for an  area   with   no   industrialization.  93rdbirthday  On Sun., Feb.' 3 Mrs. M. H.  .Towler will celebrate her birthday. At the age of 92 she .finds  her days filled with interests  which she enjoys.* With sight and  hearing good she is in the best  of health despite an attack of flu  from which she is recovering.  Mrs. Towler first resided at.  Roberts Creek in 1915 and moved  to Vancouver in 1925 following  the death of her husband, E. W.  Towler, a journalist and free  lance writer.  From 1955 to 1961 she made  her home with her daughter, Mrs.  Jrene Heath, at Roberts Creek,  but now resides at 400 Richmond  New Westminster.  Councillor Frank Parker also favored some modifying action.  Councillor Sam Dawe added that  he felt something should be done.  Councillor Swain pointed out  that during the last year or so  quite a business section has  sprung up just, outside the village. He wanted to see Sechelt  grow and felt the present building bylaw was restricting such  growth.  Chairman Christine Johnston  remarked that the new curb sys- ���  tem on the main street has done  quite a bit towards helping the  parking problem. She reported  that there were people who now  parked in one spot and because  of a sidewalk allowance were  walking more than they did before when shopping.  As the result of discussion  Chairman Christine Johnston arranged with councillors to hold  a committee meeting on the subject just as soon as council  could clear away problems now  before it.  A Sechelt PTA letter asking  council what it could do about  controlling fireworks and the  sale of cigarets to minors drew  a reply to the effect that merchants have themselves curbed  , the sale of fireworks until the  last possible day and that further action would be up to the  parents. Cigarets sales to minors  was covered by sufficient l?ws  now and councM decided narents  roi'M take sufficient actions under them to keep the sale to  minors under control.  Mr. T. R. Adams was re-elected unanimously as president of.  Gibsons public library at the annual meeting held in the library  en Friday evening of last week.  Mrs. A. Sommeis was re-elected  secretary-treasurer; Mrs. R. Emerson, /custodian and Mrs. A.  Boyes, librarian.  Not only was the executive elected unanimously, the library  board. was also re-elected with a  couple of additions to replace resignations. The board will include  Mrs. G. Corlett, Mrs. D. Stein-  brunner, Mrs. Ray Fletcher, Mrs.  A.. Y. Faris, Mr. and Mrs. J. F.  Roy, Mrs. W. S. Potter and Mr.  L. R. Peterson. ���    .  Twenty-five people turned out  for the meeting and heard the  reports covering the operations  of Gibsons library for? the past  year. '  Mr. Adams in his annual report  said the review of the operation  of the library for 1962 showed  the popularity of its services had  not decreased notwithstanding  the opening of library services at  Sechelt and .Roberts Creek from  which areas the Gibsons library  had many subscribers- This, he  said was due to the smooth and  satisfactory service given by the  efficient voluntary work groups  operating the lflwrary.  Operating expenses this year  have been heavier owing to necessary repairs, new roofing,  safety lire door, new oil heater  and a chimney installation, ail  done at the minimum of expense  thanks to the generous help o.  Mr. J. F. Roy and Mr. A. Som-  mers, which kept costs within income.  The librarian, Mr. Adams reported, showed a total book stock  of 3,952 volumes, an increase of  352 books over the previous year.  Purchases of adult books totalled  252 and for juveniles ,100. There  were also many yaluable donations of books during the year.  Where digestions in donations  lo��e_a-��-Kt-H*fr^^  sent to Roberts Creek and Sechelt  libraries.  Book circulation for the year,  Mr. Adams said, was satisfactory  the adult section having issued  7^179 books to a membership of  149 while the juvenile section .is-.,  sued 2,652 books to a membership  of 289.  Commenting on the juvenile  section he said it had been well  looked after. The Saturday morning reading hour was well attended. He thought the juvenile  reading matter was a valuable  suppliment to the excellent facilities available at school libraries-  Dealing with book circulation,  he gave credit to the staff, the  purchase oi new books and the  help from the travelling library  for the success of the library.  It was with regret, Mr. Adams  said, that the resignation of Mrs.  C. Chamberlin was accepted, af-  Church meetings  St. Bartholomew's Anglican  church annual meeting will be  held Friday evening in the Parish  Hall, Sechelt Highway in Gibsons  There will be a potluck dinner  at 6:30 p.m. with' the business  meeting getting underway at  7:30 p.m. Advance notices reveal  the annual reports from the various sections of the church will  prove more interesting this year.

While her  work would be hard? to duplicate,  he hoped that 'before long a volunteer for this important^" work  would pel found.  The?.necessity of more space  had been in the minds of the executive arid in view of the fact  the village council had promised the necessary ground, a building fund had been started. However, he added, the provincial  government public project celebrating the 100th year of Confederation might offer a means for  a new public library building.  In thanking the members for  their support during the last  year,,Mr. Adams gave credit and  thanks to the secretary-treasurer,  Mrs. A. Summers; the custodian,  Mrs. R. Emerson and the librarian, Mrs. A. Boyes for their loyal  service.

The argument whether Canada should have nuclear arms has  been going on for some time and may continue. Prime Minister  Diefenbaker favors a policy which would give him the right to make  the right choice at the right time. Lester Pearson, leader of the Liberal party prefers we have nuclear arms now. The NDP is opposed  to such  arms.  An interesting release to newspapers from the Canadian Peace  Research Institute, Dr. Norman Alcock's organization for examination of Canadian attitudes on peace and war, reveals the following  information:  Immediately after the Cuban crisis, 41 percent of Canadians wanted nuclear weapons for our forces; 17. percent  were opposed; 37 percent wanted them to be available  for use if we needed them but felt they should remain in  the U.S. until an emergency. Five percent had no opinion.  The point one should note here is; that when danger 'is near a  means of defence must be found. The 41 percent who wanted nuclear weapons for our forces added to the 37 percent who wanted  them available in the U.S. until actually required, makes a total  78 percent.  The poll was taken by a Canadian-wide research organization  and no one taking part in it apparently knew the questions asked were  of CPRI origin.  The 37 percent who felt atomic weapons should remain in U.S.  hands until an emergency, were given other questions- which revealed 2 percent thought Canadians should get atomic weapons now,  while 14 percent thought they should not. The remaining three percent  were undecided.  Judging from the institute's findings, it would seem reasonable to  assume that the Canadian public while not liking the subject of nuclear arms realizes that facts must be faced.  Lxperts - - so-called  The plethora of international commentators who invade the privacy of the Sunshine Coast through the press, radio and TV would  have had a difficult time of it back in the days of secret diplomacy,  those pre-1919 days when the only notice taken* of international affairs was the publication of a revealing editorial in some influential  newspaper or high grade magazine.  Today there are so many news agencies with so-called experts  in this or that ��� all of whom are striving to be more original than  the other fellow. The trouble with a goodly number of them is that  they are geared to produce whatever they think the situation demands at the time. The few good commenators can be ticked off on  one hand.  There will be those people who will say those good old days of  secret diplomacy have placed us in the position we are in now. That  could be possible but in the days of secret diplomacy there were no  propagandists, spouting almost hourly.  There were political murders then in high places. Since we have  overthrown secret diplomacy, the number of political murders which  have taken place makes Lucretia Borgia and all other wholesale  murderers of the past look like amateurs. Secret diplomacy has some  advantages. Maybe they should be explored or perhaps on second  thought we should let well alone. Think of the increasing unemployment situation if there were no need for commentators!  Roads to ruin  France's Prime Minister Pompidou once noted that there were  three roads to ruin ��� women, gambling and technicians. "Of these,"  he said, "women are the pleasantest, gambling is the quickest and  technicians are the surest."  The last of these above items may be useful as a guidepost to  warn those who would replace the citizen's initiative with the planned economy admired by some scientists of government.  There are many examples at hand. Russian five year plans have  produced a great deal of bumbling and where agriculture is concerned given no consideration to what comes naturally, drouth and  other such blights. In the United States we have farming without  growing crops and being paid for it. In Canada we have had the hog  situation and now butter. Putting floors under prices guarantees 'n-  creased production. Then you give the increase away or sell at fire  sale prices to get rid of it. Who pays? Why, the taxpayer, of course!  ce were  ui titiitt^ir^s^^im^M:  Has Canada's population  increased steadily?  No. It has grown more in fits  and starts from a broad historical view. Our recorded population  history began in 1605 when ; 79  French settlers, under Champ-  lain, wintered at He Ste Croix.  By spring only 44 remained alive.  In 1608 a smaller group wintered at .Quebec.  English settlement began in  1613 with'62 people at St? John's,  Nfld. In 1666 the first intendarit  of Ne\y France, Jean Talon, carried but the first census of modern times. His count was 3215  persons. By the end of the 17th  century, however, New France  had a population of 15,000. The  70,000 French Canadians of 1763  were descended from no more  than 10,000 original French settlers and the 5 million French  Canadians ��� of today stem mostly  from this tiny group of ancestors.     *  Following the American Revolution, British immigration into  Canada grew rapidly. The 10-  year-census system began in  1851 with a count of 2,436,000.  Successive census figure have  shown a growth rate varying  from 10 to 35 percent every-decade. This is one of the most  persistent records of growth to  be found in any country.  Which 60 year old new Canadian  launched a remarkable career  in Saskatchewan?  P. M. Hendricks. This enterprising man was born in Norway  in 1834. At 18, he was sailing  his own seagoing fishing vessel.  Later Hendricks moved to the  United States, where he- established two farm homes in succession and became a member of a  state legislature. Ever restless,  he immigrated into Canada,  acquiring a big farm at Outlook,  Saskatchewan. He also started-a  newspaper there and was appointed Norwegian consul.  ������ Hendricks' spirit typifies the  120 thousand Norwegian-Canadians. They have established  many progressive rural communities, while others have become  well known in industry, commerce and the professions? The  -Evangelical Lutheran Churoh^��to--*  which the great majority belong,  has more than 50 parishes, with?  125 churches and a seminary Ain V  Saskatchewan. The Norwegian  Canadians have, assimilated  easily into English-Canada. This  has led to an abandonment' of  their language, but they retain  a strong interest in Norway, and  in their own churches and organizations.  Who discovered the Lake  of the Woods?    .  Jacques de Noyon, voyageur.  Born in Trois Rivieres, P.Q.' in  1668, de Noyon was only 20 when  he made his great, voyage of discovery to the Lake of the Woods,  via Rainy Lake and Rainy River,  which also claimed him as discoverer. In 1700 de Noyon became discontented with the  French government's restrictions  on the fur trade and offered hiss '  services to the Earl of Bello-  mont, Governor of New York.  Four years later he married Abigail Stebbins in Deerfield. Mass.  Less than one month later, a  terrible massacre took place  there under the leadership of J.  B. Hertel de Rouville. De Noyon  and his bride returned to Canada, accompanied by her family  who came as captives. De Noyon  died at his family's homel in  Boucherville, P.Q., 77 years old  and the father of 13 children.

This represents a $10,000 increase over  a similiar period for 1962. The  campaign is officially over Jan.  31. Vancouver city with $111,200  has been largely responsible for  the increase in contributions,  with a 9% increase over last  year.  By Les Peterson  . Author of the Gibsons story  '  available at the Coast  News  office  Modern man would find it difficult indeed to put his foot on  an accessible spot of earth that  has not been trod before. Froni  earliest times members of the  human race, caught up in a continual series of migrations and  wanderings, sought out and explored the easiest ways to travel.  The ways they went covered the  face of the earth, from north to  south and from east to west.  Upheavals and sunken land-  bridges have destroyed the earliest of these, but the time might  yet come when evidence is found  to add fact to the legends of  Lyonnesse and Atlantis.  Recorded land trails do, however, go back to the days of  early Babylonia and Egypt, who  exchanged goods by way of caravan routes that are still in use  today. These early trails gradually extended eastward to India, and 200 years before the  birth of Christ silk was travelling over them from as far away  as northern China.  ��� ..  ���*      *      *  About 700 years ago, when  Marco Polo journeyed to Peking,  he simply followed one of these  routes that had been "modernized" by Khubla Khan. Complete  with inns and relay stations,  this 13th Century Pony Express  had all the speed and efficiency  of the 19th Century Wells Fargo  system. -,    '  Early North Amerrcan explorers, when travelling by Iand,  made use of trails known to Indians from times of earliest antiquity. In the New England Colonies a chain of these soon gave  continuous **' communication by  land from Georgia to Vermont.  In British North America explorers and fur traders joined paths  known by each new tribe encountered until by 1793 Alexander Mackenzie had reached the  Pacific.  #     *     *  ** The last leg of his journey was  made over an Indian "grease  trail" from the Fraser River to  what is now Bella Coola. Fur  brigades from the east travelled  these routes across the continent  each season and had established  them so well that by the time  construction of the Canadian Par  cific Railway got under way  most passes through the mountains were well known. The great  number of French-Canadian geographic names througout the interior indicates how thoroughly  these brigades covered that territory.  The Oregon Trail brpughjt settlers to the north-west iri the  yl840's, and into what is now British Columbia; by way of the Bel-  lingham. Bay Trail, when gold  was, discovered here iri 1858. In  the fall of that same year the  Douglas Trail,* constructed froni  Harrison Lake to Lillooet, gave  the miners access to the upper  Fraser? where the richest strikes  were later made.  *  ���*  In 1862 our best-known trail,"  the Cariboo, was begun up the,  Fraser Canyon. Indians had long  used this route, using plaited  Jacob's Ladders where necessary, but something more than  these hazardous devices was now  required. By 1864 the Cariboo  road had reached Barkerville,  from Cache Creek north making  use in places of the old fur bri  gade paths which went as far  north as Hazeltpn. These in turn  followed Indian trails that will  cover much of central B.C. with  a network of transportation  routes.  One . enterprising hauling contractor went so far as to intro--  duce camel caravans to the Cariboo, but when horses and mules  literally climbed trees at the  sight and smell of these brutes,  the experiment came to an end.  *      *     *  While the Cariboo���* was converted to stage-coach use at an  early date, the Dewdney Trail,  built in 1865, was not modernized  throughout its length until the  completion of the Hope-Princeton Highway..-in 1949. Travellers  on this modern road can see  many sections of the original  pack-trail, still intact. The present Cariboo Road follows a  much higher route than the original through the Fraser Canyon, and all but a few bits of  the old trail have become obliterated. The Waddington Trail  to the head of Bute Inlet never  fully materialized.  Pioneers have always had to  rely on trails for trade and communication. The very word trade  is in fact derived from tread, an  inheritance from the days when  goods that were to be exchanged  were carried on the backs of  the traders. Settlers in the early  days of our province depended  on the packboard for carrying  supplies   into   their   homesteads  over trails made passable by  picking away hillsides and laying corduroy and puncheon  across swamps.  Busy city streets and. highways  were trails not so many years  ago.; Kirigsway, known originally as Moody Trail, was slashed  through the forests;-from -New  Westminster to : deep water at  Kitsilarib so that the old capital  could obtain assistance _�� from  the navy if it were -,attacked. It  was not made suitable for wagon  travel until 1872. The Grandview-  Douglas Highway started as a  trail, to? a homestead on Still  Creek, . and what is now Main  Street was a trail to the North  Arm.  The proportion of. our population who' depend--on trails for-  travel has diniinished greatly of  recent years, but they stlil find  use. Trappers, prospectors, surveyors,, timber cruisers and forest rangers still follow them as  part of their daily work.  #    .*.  *  Explorers,, geologists, and engineers who begin? journeys by  air often finish them on foot.  Hunters, dude ranchers, and resort vacationists walk or ride  horseback, now, that they do not  have to, along paths that have  acquired a legendary history  that, motor-highways cannot attain.  ���' The Iroquois, the Chisholm, the  Cariboo, the interminable Telegraph, and the mythical Owlhoot  Trails are woven iridelibly into  the history of our- country and  our people. Whether we travel  byland, sea,, pr air, it is time  to hit the trail.  EDUCATION WEEK  Education Week will be from  March 3 to 9.

You can also use  a liner of aluminum foil. Preheat the broiler pan; arrange  lean fish on hot pan. Cover with  any of the following toppings;  broil two to three inches from  source of heat until fish flakes  easily when tested with a fork,  about four minutes for a thin fillet. Allow ten minutes per inch  thickness of fish. Do not overcook.  A continental flair with seasonings and simple vegetables  transforms frozen fish sticks into a quick, satisfying dinner dish  that's quite sophisticated. ' Fish  Sticks Scallopini can be prepared  and completely cooked in about  fifteen minutes. In a heavy, frying pan melt about one-third of  a cup of butter, then add two  medium onions cut into rings and  four medium green peppers cut  into large strips:  Cover the pan and cook vegetables about five miriutes" over  low to medium heat. Then stir  in a quarter of a cup of sherry  or dry white wine. Season with-  salt and pepper. Arrange the  contents of one package of fish  sticks on top. Cover; cook about  three to five minutes or until  the fish sticks are heated  through.  Just arrange the fillets in a:  greased shallow baking dish.  Sprinkle them with salt and a  pinch of thyme and basil, then  a litlte minced onion or chopped  green onions. Dilute canned consomme with an equal quantity  of water ��� one ten-ounce can  is about right for orie and a half  to two pounds of fillets ��� pour  on enough of, the liquid to barely cover the fish. Bake uncovered in a preheated very hot oven  (450 deg. F.) until fish will just  flake easily when tested with a  fork, allowing about ten minutes  per inch thickness of fish. Serve  the pan liquids as a savory sauce  with the fish.  Lemon juice adds an extra  spark of flavor when it's sprinkled over fillets of sole along with  salt and pepper before they're  breaded and fried. This quick  trick is a favorite of leading hotel chefs. Another master touch  that puts these delicate-tasting  fillets into a very special class  is to add a liberal dash of paprika to the flour you use for pre-  breading. It help produce a  richer, deeper color in the crisp  coating.  A can of consomme, fresh or  frozen fillets, a little seasonings  and a very hot oven, that's all  that's needed to produce a-most  unusual platter of fish that's long  on flavor and short on cooking  time. Depending on the variety  of fish fillets used, cod, haddock  or sole are especially good, quick  fish-consomme dish takes less  than ten minutes to cook, even  less time to get ready for the  oven!,  FORESTS OF  CANADA  *"��  The forests of Canada fall into  two main classes. First, there  are those forests growing under  climatic and soil conditions that  .permit timber to. attain sizes useful to trade and industry. About  . 55 percent of the forest area falls  in this class. Within it about 42  percent of the area is occupied  by timber big enough now to be  merchantable, and the other half  bears young, growing trees  which . will reach merchantable  size in the future. This forest  covers about 58 percent of the  land area of the ten provinces  of Canada, and greatly exceeds  the amount of land suitable for  agriculture.  the province-wide speech and  hearing program which in this  one year reached 990 individuals  and provided specialized diagnostic service for another 500?  Still to be fully developed is  the Vocational Rehabilitation  Centre which retains the disabled for work.  What does it all add up to?  It is total rehabilitation for the  disabled regardless of cause of  disability and to the extent that  the disabled individual requires  assistance to walk and work and  play1 again within the limitations  of his  disability.  Much of the service needed is  provided to the client by purchase from existing treatment  centres. Where the required services have not been available already within the community, the  Foundation has been participating directly in the development  of these services. The aim. is to  provide all the services required  by an individual so that money  spent on medical services is not  wasted through lack of vocational or other services.  This major rehabilitation program grew out of the needs of  polio victims who continue? in  spite of vaccine programs to require assistance in overcoming  the ravages of the past. In 1961  a total of 140 post polio victims  passed through the Foundation's  program.  Other" clients now outnumber  the polio clients more than 10 to  1 in the' Foundation's services.  The only disabled who do not  qualify are those for whom a spe  cific disease agency raises funds.  ? Vv'iiue the . major portion of  funds raised through the Mothers'March appeal is of necessity  spent in medical and vocational  rehabilitation services, research  and prevention are also assisted.  The foundation has worked cooperatively with the provincial  government in the promotion and  continuation of ��� the Salk Vaccine  and more recently oral vaccine  programs towards the eradication of polio's ravages.  Grant funds have made possible a research laboratory at  the University of British Colum-  BEST   QUALITY   DRESS  r & WORK   SHOES  f  i  Marine  Men's  Wear  LTD.

Immediately after the Cuban  crisis, 41 percent of Canadians  wanted nuclear weapons for our  forces; 17 percent were opposed;  37 percent wanted them to be  available for use if we needed  them but felt they should remain  in the U.S. until an emergency. 5  percent had no opinion.  These questions were asked of  a representative cross-section of  Canadians from coast to cc-a-**--1. as  part of a national attitude study  undertaken by the Canacl'.an  Peace Research Institute. In all  nearly 100 specific qucric*: wore  made of each person int?rv".ev*id.  Tabulation and analysis of answers is still underway by the institute staff and results will be  announced for the various sections of the study over the next  four weeks.  There was a marked difference  between English and French'Canadians on the question of nuclear  weapons .' for Canadian forces.  While 42 percent of English-speaking Canadians favored nuclear  arms for. Canadian forces, only  31 percent of French-speaking  did. Among those'of other origins  48 percent favored nuclear arms.  The 37 percent of Canadian?,  who felt atomic weapons -should  remain in U.S. hands until an  emergency were asked in the  wake of the Cuban crisis whether  Canadian forces should get atomic weapons now. 20 percent of the  Canadians polled thought they  should; 14 percent hought not.  The other three percent were undecided.  Asked   their   opinion   on    tlie  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  Weddings  DOYLE ��� CATTANACH  A pretty wedding was solemnized in the Pentecostal Tabernacle on the evening of January.  12, when Janet Cora Cattanach,.  given in marriage by her father,  John Cattanach, became the  bride of Mr. James Alfred Doyle.

Her veil was held in place by a  Juliet cap of seed pearls. Her  dainty slippers, hidden by the  long gown, were gold, as she had.  always wished to wear golden  slippers at her wedding. She  carried a white Bible with a  love knot of white carnations and  Scotch heather.  The bride's sister, Mrs. Jean  Abrams was matron of honor, in  pink and white nylon. The other  attendant, Mrs. Roberta Wolansky, wore a two piece suit of  deep rose. Both carried bouquets  of pink and white carnations.  Wedding music was supplied by  Mrs. Peter Madison of Port Mellon and Mr? W. Haley of Gibsons.  Mrs. *Madison gave a lovely rendition of Oh Perfect Love.  A reception * was held in the  Legion Hall where the happy  couple received congratulations.

The Davis Ottawa  By  JACK DAVIS,  M.P.  Coast-Capilans Constituency  The 25th session of the House  of Commons has acquired a character of its own.  Any minority government fore,  ed to operate ivs and from a house  of minorities, must put up a dogged day-to-day fight fer its very  existence to. fend off a general  election that may become necessary at any minute of any hour,  of the day.  Already, Prime Minister Diefenbaker's government has survived seven separate no-confidence votes ��� most of tHem too  close for comfort. Packed galleries have watched as frantic  party strategists involved in informal caucus meetings on the  house floor or in inter-party negotiations, have sought to ensure  the defeat or maintenance^ of the  government.  Quite apart from the critical  CGiiiidence motion votes, the  house has provided quite a few  of those fierce clashes between  parties that are sure they're election-bound.  the nation was left to flounder  in a sea of economic alternatives. The fatal weakness of the  Howe system was that it depended on a few individuals. It was  not a built-in feature of our economy.  SENDING MONEY AWAY?  You can convert  your cash in  But regarded purely and simply as high drama, the performance of the house of commons  so far this parliament has had a  curiously uneven quality. It's  either a feast or a famine.  Yet local spectators who have  "hurried to the gallery expecting  a fierce encounter have.been. sur-.  prised to find the house going  placidly about its business in a  routine manner.  The fiery exchanges which can  flare up so suddenly over anything from a speaker's ruling to  a legislative principle usually  stop as quickly as they start. The  churlishness of /one minute is  forgotten the next.. Irascibility,  within a remarkably short space  of time, is converted into co-operation and affectionate platitudes.  As legislatures go, this house  of commons has earned, without  enjoying it, the reputation of be: ,  ing freSfuI,, fidgety, fractious,  peevish, sulky and sullen. It is.  above all. things, unpredictable.  As the government has discovered in its effort to speed the  passage of its legislative program  the house can be as balky as a  Missouri mule, if pressed. At  ether times it is surprisingly cooperative  :Now, more than five years  later, the present government  -has decided to appoint a staff  of experts whose duty it will be  to study 'and advise on long-  range economic plans; The new  board will be obliged to provide  the minister of finance with, all  such advice and information as  will best assist the government  of. Canada in furthering the attainment of a high and sustainable rate of economic growth,  the^strengthening of Canada's international trade position and the  achievement of the highest possible, levels of employment.  Incidentally, the board can  only study and report on economic problems. It will be up to  the cabinet to take action on the  basis of the board's reports. In  thie light of experience, it may  turn out to be desirable that the  board should have powers to  carry out some of its plans. But  at least we are making a start  on economic planning in the  European, and I trust fully  democratic, sense of the word.

Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, on Jan. 8, was  born in 1880 in South Shields,  England. Mr. Brooks was one of  the pioneers of this coast, having lived in the Halfmoon Bay  district for over 40 years. He,  came to Canada in 1921 and very  soon afterwards discovered the  lovely coast of the Sechelt Peninsula. In 1924 he married Edna  May Dunn and built a fine homestead at Cougar Cove near Welcome Pass.  There were no roads at the  northern end of the peninsula at  that time and Cougar Cove, like "  Halfmoon Bay, was accessible  only by boat. Mr. and Mrs.  Brooks, however, ''cut four miles  of bridle trail which enabled them  to reach Half moon Bay oh horseback. .  The coast abounded in wild  life in those days. Ten cougars,  probably attracted by the home- -  stead goats, were killed by the  Brocks, and grouse, deer and  fish were plentiful.  Mr. Brooks was. a great reader and student of philosophy. He  spent his last years quietly with  his books, but always had a warm  welcome for friends who could  discuss with him the deeper  things of life. By those friends  he will be greatly missed.  ���M. A.T.  6       Coast News,   Jan. 24, 1963.

It is to be noted that the **.-** n-  ister of .finance, in introducing  the legislation, so obviously  avoided using the word planning.  But the words are not important; it is action that counts.  And an active economic development board could go a long way  towards putting some steam into  the Canadian economy.  It has been obvious for several  years that the country has badly needed long-term economic  planning. In the days when Mr.  C. D. Howe was in charge of the  economy, he did the planning  himself, with the aid of a brilliant hand-picked staff.  The.system worked but it did  not survive Mr. Howe.

Reading is a complex skill and  childrens' readiness to read differs. Some children are slow,  some fast. It has been found that  almost one quarter of the schol-*  ars heed* extra help^with reading;  Four times as many boys as'  girls find reading hard to master. Between five and ten percent slow readers with normal  intelligence need remedial reading by special teachers.  Why do children have such  trouble in reading? Some suffer  because they start" to school unable to speak clearly and without the habit of .listening attentively when* they are spoken to.  The vocabulary of some children  is very limited. Their parents  have neglected to read aloud to  them, to answer their questions,  to take ;them' on: ilittle��� trips -in  their ^neighborhood which would  i widen their horizons.  -. .. *      *   . *    ,  Poor hearing or a defect in  talking may; cause reading difficulty as well as trouble with eyesight, pood physical co-ordination contributes to a child's reading readiness.. A healthy, well-  adjusted child is more apt to  take to reading than one who is  not strong or who is upset by a  home situation. If parents are  bickering constantly or if a bereavement or divorce shadows a  family, a child's progress at  school is  affected adversely.  A child who is just starting to  read will occasionally read  words upside down or backward.  He may see m for w, d for b,  or no for on. Fortunately this  is frequently a temporary stage.  It is a. long time since mother  or dad learned to read and likely they have forgotten their  struggles. It takes imagination  for a parent to realize that it is  no easy feat for a child who  knows what a cat or a picture  of a cat looks like, to be able  to identify the printed word.  C-A-T with this animal. There  are many inconsistencies in Eng-.  lish spelling, which to a child  often seems illogical and confusing.? .;.���'���-���'������ w ��� -  Ideas about the best way. to  read are . constantly 'changing.  Grandparents and some parents  learned . the alphabet thoroughly  before they attempted to read  a single word. Today emphasis 'is*  rriade on scholars learning ..to  recognize words, phrases, whole  sentences at a glance. Speed Mn  reading for pleasure as well as  slow reading for study are t*w;o  different goals. ??,       I  ���    ' *.'���    ,  '*"    ..?*���?. '1;    'X'X  Educationalists in many lands  are worried by the number of  poor readers in school. Various  experiments are constantly being tried. In one' Canadian city,  where there had been a veto on  the use of phonics, and the word-  reccgnition" method had been: used exclusively, the school board  decided that in a number of  specially-selected schools, the  partial use of sounding but words  would be tried. y  In seven British prima*|y  schools, a thousand children are  being taught a; new forty-three  letter, phonetic alphabet, called  the augmented Roman alphabet.  This experiment is carried out  for the, first three years at  school and then pupils are introduced to orthodox spelling.  The research unit of London  University's Institute of Education is sponsoring this novel  plan.

But an ih-  formal chat with his teach&r  might bring to light, some practical suggestions about ways  junior can be assisted as well? as  reveal the degree of his reading  difficulty. X  The delight which small children feel when parents read  aloud at bedtime and the practice of the family reading aloUd  for enjoyment, a�� the children  get older, is bound to be helpful. The child looks oh reading  as a grown-up skill which is fun.

Sechelt News  Your fishing technique just  ain't up to date if you aren't employing the, noises made by  fish's muscles.  At least, that's what some Jap.  anese experts say. They insist  you, or professional fishermen  anyway, should start out with So-  nobuoy, comprising an underwater microphone and floating wireless transmitter. You may not  make much sense out of the  noises, but at least you'll know  where the fish are.  Then, when, you want to catch  those fish, the experts say you  thould employ the sounds, flavors and smell it likes. These an.  pareiitly range all the way from  the noise of pounding iron rods  in water, which somehow appeals  to whales and octopus, to the  sound of sinking lead rod which  appeals to a somewhat less im  aginative breed called the sea  bream. All these effects, the experts say, will lure or scare fish,  into-traps for a rich haul. So  much   for worms.
