 GOLDEN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE  HOUSE &  MOTEL  Gibsons  ���  Ph.  886-9815  Provincial Library*  JJlcrfcpria��, B��__C*  SERVING THE GROWING, SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  js  Volume 18, Number o, January 30, 1964  /. i  7c per copy  ace  old water  main  The relaying of about 1500 feet  of new transite watepipe in the  back lane of Marine Drive from  ,. Jack's lane replacing the present ancient wooden line is included in the preliminary budget for 1964, it was announced  at Tuesday night's council meeting. '���'-".';-.    '.  This will cost $5,135 with the  possible rebate of $1,235 under  the government winter works  scheme. When Councillor Fladager asked that the work be let  out on contract, Council discussed the possibilty of putting it  on a rate per hour basis. The.  matter remained undecided.  Discussion relating to turning  completion of the village tax  roll over to a government department brought, forth information that council preferred to  handle its own tax roll while  operating under a .$12,500 taxation limit, with improvement?  on property taxed at 50% instead  of the general 75%.  Councillor Sam Fladager was  of the opinion that next year  council would have to overstep  the $12,500 limit and that would  be the time to turnrthe tax roll  over to the government department for processing.  Council received from sur-  veyer D. J. Roy copies of air  photos taken taken last August  by Hunting Survey Corporation  which he thought would be of  use in water and sewer surveys  of the proposed expanded village  area. This expansion starts at  the back of the Indian Reserve  and extends to Park Rd. then in  a general way slopes down to  the waters of Georgia Strait to  the village ^boundary on Gvwer  Pt   Rd. :/.i;.V:> ','..".,,:, ^   .___.  Council has approved the  Chamber of Commerce plan to  place a launching ramp at the  bottom' of Prowse Rd. It also  passed accounts totalling $515.76.  The garbage collection problem 'at Ken's Foodland store  came up for discussion again  and council will seek to see what  can be done about arranging for  more use of the back lane for  trucks and garbage collection.  Names of appointees to a 1967  Centennial committee for Gibsons will likely be announced at  the next meeting of council on  Feb. 11. Council now has before-  it the outline of requirements for  such a committee.  Council agreed to the lease  for the new Health Centre as.  prepared by the provincial government under which the Health  department pays $1 per year for  the space, it occupies.  The new water connection Bylaw 138 changing the connection  cost of $30 to $50 was given three  readings and sent to Victoria for  assent. On its return council  will give it final reading.  A BIG HELP  The Port Mellon Community  Association's. Christmas.party for  children has proved a big help  to the Save the Children Fund  which benefitted to the extent  of $275.  This occurred because the children at the party donated money  which would have been used for  gifts to them to the Save the Children Fund. Miss Sybil Conery,  secretary of the fund, wrote and  thanked the children of the Community Association for their  thoughtfulness.  TEENAGE DANCE  A Teenage dance will be held  in Sechelt Royal Canadian Legion hall, Friday evening starting at 8 p.m. there will be good  music and refreshments.

Big Lions event  i-  Representing the newly formed Lions club of Sechelt, Charles  Gregory and Jack Gibb appeared before Sechelt District School  board at Monday night's meeting and obained the use of Elphinstone Secondary school auditorium for a smorgasbord and  dance celebrating charter night  for the Sechelt club.  This event which will take  place Saturday, March 7 will attract a least 400 persons, Mr.  Gregory said bringing visitors  from within this, area, Vancouver, Vancouver Island also parts  of the states of Washington and  Idaho.  High officials of the international Lions club will be present  to take part in the charter ceremony, which, involves club regalia arid ceremony.  Mr. Gregory and Mr. Gibb  were of the opinion the Sunshine  Coast would get considerable ad-  ' vertising out of this event. He  said he was striving to "obtain  all the overnight"accommodation  Choir supper  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  choir were entertained recently  at a supper in the Parish Hall.  Games and dancing were enjoyed  afterwards.

THREE   NOMINATED  Alfred August, Gilbert Joe and  Reginald Paull were nominated  for the office of band chiefs at  Sunday's meeting of the Sechelt  Indian band. The election will  take place later by ballot.  GULLS VICIOUS  High seas in the gulf have been  hard on the gulls lately causing  them to be short of food. It is  reported that one lone woman  beach-walking and nibbling on an  apple, had the fruit almost torn  from her mouth. In fact, she tossed it away for fear that the hungry birds would peck her face.  Another seaside resident, throwing food on the beach, had much  the same experience, a bird almost pecking her hand.  noiv studying the offers with, the  result   that    a   recommendation;  shbuld be made at the next meeting of the board.  An error in/tabulating preliminary budget figures has resulted  in'; the board having $6,000 lopped, from transportation costs  which will be retained in the bud-  gel for use in some other phase  of. educational costs, .v ,  iAs a result of discussion on fire  drills at the larger schools Fire  Chief Scott will be asked to look  over the various buildings and  mjake recommendations where  advisable not only as regards pupils but also to give the fire  triicks ample space to get close  to school buildings in the event of'  a.i fire. A letter will be sent to  school principals stating they  must, stick to the letter of fire  drill regulations "��� and that they.  should get the co-operation of local  fire  departments.    . ?   ..  :-|In view of impending changes  in the curriculum it is anticipat-.  ed that Pender Harbour school  Willi dtflay its exttensibn un��l  clarification is available. It was  suggested that there could be  changes in the various courses  and that arrangement? of today  might be different under a new-  setup.  ���On the subject of vocational  training the board was of .the  opinion it would .be best for this  district to have a general vocational course instead of dealing  with specifics and it will be along  this line the board will continue  its investigation into such training. Trustee J. Horvath was not  too happy about the present vocational setup at Elphinstone  school regarding it as being insufficient in space and subjects  taught.  Osborne heads  Sechelt C of C  'E.

Harbor shelter  likely at Sechelt  ��� Sechelt is nearer getting what-  is described'as a refuge harbor  and closer to having a provincial  government liquor store. This information was conveyed to Sechelt's Chamber of Commerce  members at their annual meeting  Saturday night in the. Legion Hall  The refuge harbor was implied  by Jack Davis, M.P., parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister  Pearson and Magistrate Andrew  Johnston said the liquor store  project was now closer than ever  to realization. With a well documented brief Mr. Davis thought  the refuge could be obtained in  about four years. Magistrate  Johnston was at the time thanking Mr. Davis for the talk he  gave following the annual dinner  served by Sechelt Kinettes.  Mr. Davis discussed Canadian  Chamber of Commerce objectives  in relation to federal government  policy, explaining how strong  arid vigorous present trade policies were and the coming tariff  negotiations known as the first  Kennedy round of discussions on  international trade treaties. He  hoped that from the Kennedy  round would come a general lowering of trade barriers which  would have a beneficial effect  on Canada. He also suggested  there would be a national minimum wage law which could mean  a general minimum wage of $1.25  an hour.  He also spoke on more democratic representation in the house  of commons where at present one  member may represent 5,000 voters and another 250,000. He advocated a 70,000 average for each  seat in the electoral system, with  a possible 10 percent variation.  By this redistribution he forecast  British Columbia would gain two  or three seats.  In public welfare he expected  there would be a general increase  of pensions. In the field of budgets he explained the tremendous governmental deficit was  being reduced and the new budget may not be as stringent as-  some of the past. It is hoped  by budgetary means to get uri  employment down to about four  percent of employables.  Development of B.C. resources  ovorccl    ha   Colu-ib'.a   and   the"  proposed  bank Premier  Bennett:  is   advocating.   Mr.   Davis   said'  many people were not too happy  about government invading business.   However,, h?   *^c:nted  out'  there are n:.ap.y W2<?'. ^oast banks  in the United States who cannot  be termed as old, yet  they  are  flourishing.  If the Columbia project was not  undertaken now on behalf of United States - require^c" ts., Mr. Davis said that British Columbia  would have been forced to do it  en its own by the year 2000. Doing it now with U.S. financiaE  help means it can be done more  cheaply.  Fisheries problems drew front  Mr. Davis the prospect of their  being a headland to headland 12  mile limit which would give Canadian fishermen closed waters in  some cases up to 15 miles from  shore.  During his discussion on tourism he dwelt on the lack of facilities for marine traffic in Se- -  chelt area. He forecast the new  ferry system linking, this area  with Comox would make the Sunshine Coast ferry system a > big  talking point among tourists. Discussing harbor facilities, Mr. Davis explained how each member  had various projects in his constituency which received priorities and the Sechelt problem was  coming closer and could receive  attention in the next budget. He  implied the cost was now down  to about $240,000 and the case  made for it .this year was im-  measureably better with more detailed information available. He  wondered where the fishermen of  Coal Harbour area in Vancouver  would have to move to when that  area gets into the high rise apartment class.  Magistrate Johnston when  thanking Mr. Davis for his visit  to Sechelt dwelt brieflv on the 15  year fight for a breakwater and  the effort to get a liquor store in  Sechelt. Mr. Davis is the second  statesman Coast - Capilano has  had in parliament, he said, linking Mr. Davis with James Sinclair. The constituency first had  Mr. Sinclair. Now it has Mr. Davis,, he added.

The provincial bank  Premier Bennett's desire to form a provincial bank is couched  in the following words, as read by Lt. Gov. G. R. Pearkes at the  opening of the legislative assembly on Thursday of last week: "As  a further measure of encouragement to the balanced development of  our economy, it is the intention of my government to support all positive measures which will make British Columbia and our commercial capital of Vancouver in particular, a centre of Canadian finance.  Accordingly you will be asked at this session to authorize my government, on behalf, of our citizens, to become a limited shareholder in  a federally chartered bank which wilt be established in this province."  That was all the Throne Speech had to say on it. The wording  of the speech is clear enough in its demand, that of being a limited  ishareholder. It could be a move in the right direction.  There are now three provincial banks in Canada, Newfoundland,  Ontario and Alberta. At one time Manitoba had a provincial bank  but it had to be bailed out by standard banks when it got into serious difficulties.  The Newfoundland bank, established in 1834, has deposits of  close to $30,000,000. The Ontario bank established in 1931 has deposits close to the $80,000,000 mark and the Alberta bank which came  into being after the Aberhart government was elected is also in the  $30,000,000 bracket. In the Alberta bank deposis may be made for a  period up to five years, mainly payable on demand and guaranteed  by the province.  Back in 1862 the Bank of British Columbia was established in  .London, England, with a secondary head office in Victoria, B.C. It  ;got into difficulties in the 1890s and never recovered its commanding  position and as the years passed instead of being one of two banks  in this province it became one of nine and was eventually merged  with the Bank of Commerce in 1901.  Operations of a bank in a limited field such as governmental  finance or any other area of restriction does not have too good a  record in banking history. Unless the provincial bank has top-rank  liquid reserves it can run into difficulties. Here's hoping the Bank of  British Columbia, if that is what it is to be called, will not be too  restricted in its operations. If it is to be a bank established expressly  for governmental purposes a careful look at it woald be advised.  Left-handed logic!  A recent editorial in the Vancouver Province makes the sound  argument that even under government ownership, a public utility  should still be required to submit proposed rate increases to open  discussion before a public utilities commission. The paper was  editorialising on the subject of a rumoured bus fare increase,  When the city's residents bought their electric power, natural gas  and bus rides from a private company, rate hikes had to have approval of the Public Utilities Commission. "Now, quotes the province, "under public ownership, utility rates are no longer under the  same public scrutiny or public examination . : . Government ownership, it seems, has a little different meaning than public ownership."  The incident recalls a statement made a while back by Premier  Khrushchev about the law that denies Russian workers the right to  Strike. Since the public owns the factories, said Mr. Khrushchev,  why would the workers want to have the right to strike against  themselves? By the same left-handed logic, where the public owns  the utilities, why would they want to have a look at the books to  make sure that rate increases were justifiable?  The leadership question  Interviewed in Winnipeg during a stop-over en route to his vacation on Vancouver Island, Conservative Party Leader John Diefen-  baker stated bluntly that there would be no leadership contest at  the party's annual meeting to be held in Ottawa in February.  If this is so, then one can but wonder why Egan Chambers, the  national president of the party, recently polled influential Conservatives across the country in order to find out whether they wished  the leadership question raised at the annual meeting and if so in  what way.  The rift in the ranks of the party over the leadership question,  quite obviously, has become very deep ��� so deep in fact that it cannot simply be glossed over for very much longer.  Premier W. A.. C. Bennett's  press: release outlines the new  details regarding the Columbia  River Treaty, as follows: ��� \- >  Great benefits to Canada and  the United States from the development of the Columbia River  will result from the agreement  announced today by the governments of British Columbia, Canada and the United States.    "  The.'-United States have agreed  to make payments to British Columbia which are equivalent to  $501 million in Canadian funds  in 1973, when the period.of dam  construction is finished.;  In return for these payments,  British Columbia . will construct  three large storage dams 4, at  Duncan Lake, Arrow Lakes and  Mica Creek which will provide  increased power generation and  flood control in the Columbia  River basin in Canada and.the  United States. ; j  The specific payments will be:  (a) $274.8 million for the Canadian entitlement to its half  share of the increased power  generation in the United States,  which has been sold for 30 years.  This payment is to be made on  October 1, 1964 the expected  date of the exchange of ratifications. *  (b) $12 million on completion  of the Duncan project in 1968;  $56.3 million on completion of  the Arrow project in 1969; and  $1.3 million on completion of  Mica in 1973. These payments,  totalling $69.6 million, are in return for flood control benefits  in the United States.  The total proceeds thus received and assuming interest at  4%% will produce an equivalent  revenue of 5.3 mills per kilowatt  hour for the sale of the estimated Canadian entitlement over 30  years.  The United States payments  for power and flood control compounded at 5% will have a total  value of $501 million by 1973  -when the three dams are completed. Similarly compounded,  the total construction costs of  the dams, including full compensation for all persons affected,  will total $448 million in 1973.  Surplus revenues of $53 million  will therefore be available for  application against the cost of  the Mica generators.  The total amounts received  from the United States will:  (a) Pay all the capital costs  of the storage dams as they occur.  (b) Pay about half the capital  cost of the generators at Mica.  (c) Enable a 1.8 million kilowatt installation at Mica to produce 6.8 billion kilowatt hours  of energy annually for less than  1.5 mills per kilowatt hour. The  corresponding cost under development without the Treaty  would be approximately 4 mills  per kilowatt hour. The savings  at Mica at full production will  therefore be about $16 million  a year up to and including the  year 2003. The cost of Mica  energy without the Treaty development might well rule out  any development either at that  site or downstream in Canada.  * * *  The arrangements ensure that ���  the storage projects in Canada  will be debt-free at the end of  the 30-year sale. This compares  with a normal amoritization  period for such projects of 50  to 100 years.  Construction of the Treaty  projects oh this basis with all  costs paid will make possible  enormous economic advantages  to Canada and British Columbia  which could only be attained, if  at all, at much higher cost  through development without the  Treaty, These advantages make  possible:  (a) The installation of over 4  million kilowatts at points on the  Columbia River in Canada which  will produce energy at a cost of  about 2 mills per kilowatt hour.  (This installed capacity is nearly  IV2 times the total present hydro  electric installation in British  Columbia and about 1/5 of the  total for all of Canada).  Gems of Thought  THE FUTURE  That tomorrow starts from today and is one day beyond it,  robes the future with hope's  rainbow hues. ��� Mary Baker  Eddy  I like the dreams of the future better than the history of  the past.���Thomas Jefferson  We are made wise not by the  recollections of our past, but by  the responsibilities of our future.  ���George Bernard Shaw  Everything that looks to "the  future elevates human nature.���  Letitia E. Landon  The future is always a fairy  land to the young.���George  Augustus Sala  The future is purchased by the  present.���-Samuel Johnson  (b) Delivery of this power to  centres throughout the southern  half of the province at about 3  mills per kilowatt hour.  (c) Prevention of floods in settled areas on the Kobtenay and  Columbia Rivers.  (d) At the end of the 30-year  sales contract the- storage projects in British Columbia will  still be producing downstream  power benefits in the United  States with potential revenue to  British Columbia of $5 to $10  million per year. -  (e) Additional payments of up  to $8 million by the United  States for extra flood control  if it is required during the  Treaty period as well as special  flood control compensation for  any emergency requirements of  the United . States during and  after the life of the Treaty.  *     *     *  The construction of the Libby  reservoir by the United States  will make possible the annual  additional generation of more  than 200,000 kilowatt years of  low cost energy in British Columbia essential for the continuing development of the Kbote-  nays. These benefits do not have  to be shared. The Libby Dam  will also provide additional flood  control in the industrial and  farming areas of the West Koote-  nays.  Among irr->~ovements through  the Protocol to the Treaty are:  (a) New procedures for Canadian participation in determining the need for any flood control requested by the United  States that is additional to the  flood conrol covered by the  initial payments.  (b) Reaffirmation in positive  terms of Canada's right to make  any diversions of Columbia  Basin water required for consumptive needs such as irrigation and municipal uses.  (c) Clarification of Canada's  right to continue in perpetuity  any diversion of Kootenay River  water undertaken in accordance  with the Treaty. .   .  (d) Confirmation of Canadian  control over the detailed opera- .��  tion    of    the Canadian Treaty  storage  for power  purposes.  (e) An increase in Canada's  downstream energy benefits by  14% to 18% by using a longer  period of stream flow in benefit  calculations. .    ,  (f) A clear statement that the.  Treaty   does   not   establish   any  precedents that apply to any waters, other than those of the Co-"  lumbia River and does not modify the application of the Boundary Waters Treaty to such other   .  waters.  (g) Elimination of the Treaty  standby transmission charges  for the thirty-year period of the  sale and thereafter if the service is not required. The total  effect of the improvements  through the Protocol is to establish a better balance through essentially Canadian interests and  the interests of the Columbia  Basin as a whole.  * "# *  A peak labor force of about  3,000 men and an average of  some 1,350 will be employed  directly on the dams alone during the nine-year construction  period of the Treaty storage  projects. Expenditures by this  labor force and by industry  across Canada on the production  of materials and equipment for  the dams will create a greats  many more jobs. Following the  construction of Duncan, Arrow  and Mica there will be a continuing building program for a  further ten to fifteen years for  other large dams on the Columbia River.  OLD   ENGLISH   DINNER  Members of the Vancouver  branch of the English-Speaking  Union of the Commonwealth will  commemorate the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's birth at a  special gala performance Saturday, Feb. 1 of the Playhouse  Theatre Company's production of  Julius Caesar, directed by Mayor  Moore. A reception and an Old  English buffet dinner with distinguished guests and members  of the cast, will begin at 6:30  p.m. in the Playhouse Theatre's  Green Room.  tain major benefits from the  Treaty. It will secure substantial  flood protection and a very large  increase of power production at  plants on the Columbia River in  the United States. One-half of  this increased power is the; United States' own .entitlement under  the Treaty and the other half  is the Canadian entitlement  bought by the United States for  thirty years.  The accord between the Government of Canada and the'Government of British ~; Columbia  prerequisite' to 'and implicit in  the achievement of today's  agreement is an example of cooperative federalism effectively  at work. It was founded on the  two Governments' common determination to secure maximum  benefit to the national and provincial interest. This objective  has now been met.  The agreements between Canada and the United States are  based on the discussions between the late John F. Kennedy  and Prime Minister L. B.

It, has been owned successively by Mr. Peter Milne,  the Mackie Brothers and is now  in the possession of Mr. Jim  Cooper.  Probably it was during the  ownership of Peter Milne that  the store reached its greatest  eminence as a social centre, and  much of its success at that time  can be attributed to Mr. Milne's  caretaker, Sergeant King, a  genial and lovable character  who had served in the regular  army iri India and was to end  his days at Redrooffs.

Leaving for work in the morning Norm Wolansky had almost  stepped on the bird huddled on  the doorstep of his house. He  phoned the Ken Austins to ask  if the boys wanted a duck. ..On  closer inspection when Danny  fetched the bird it was obvious  that although it had webbed feet  and was a sea bird it was not  a duck.

It didn't appear to be frightened of people  and sat huddled up beside the  fire. ;  Towards late afternoon it was  decided to return it to the sea  so that it would be able to catch  its own food. By the time I re  ceived the phone message it was  already away. However I took  the bird books over and it wasn't  long before Una was able to identify the visitor, a Marbled Mur-  relet. Awkward on land with its  flat feet the Murrelet is an expert swimmer under water, using  its feet as a rudder and wings as  oars.  In the odd way in which an unfamiliar word or circumstance ,  crops up again in a few days  Thursday's radio talk in the Natural Curiosity series concerned  the mystery oft the Marbled Murrelet. It seems that very little  is known of the nesting habits of  these birds. Murrelets with an  egg have been recorded from  widely different places and in  completely different habitats,  from 9,000 feet above sea level in  Alaska, to a tree felled in the.  Queen Charlottes, to inland cliffs  on southern Vancouver Island.  There are no records of anyone  having' seen a Murrelet in the  downy chick stage. >  Ornithologists in Victoria have  watched the birds congregating  in pairs in the early summer.  Then one disappears, presumably incubating the egg, but her  mate only leaves the sea and ���  flies inland to feed her and later  the young, after dark. In !atn ,  summer when fully fledged the  young appear on the sea with  their parents.  So the Gibsons' mystery bird,  the odd little penguin, turns out  to be part of one of the so far  unsolved mysteries of the Pacific  coast."  ,6Wl���i WW KCCX&t XJMUC/M  904���CROCHET SEVERAL PAIRS; of these string gloves.

Th  e  Story  (ARTICLE 3)  (By LES PETERSON)  One of HUN'-AH-CHIN'S  stories centres around a young woman     na��.ed     KLAYA-KLAYA-  KLYE;    Smiling  .all  the  Time.  Two brothers;  her husband and  his older brother, were hunting,  late in the year, on the sides of  MIN'-ATCH.      Suddenly,     some  mountain-goats    they   had  been  following  - disappeared.    -Upon  searching carefully, the brothers  discovered   an    opening  in  the  rocks, entered, and found themselves with the goats in a cave  ��� the very cave in which their  ancestors    had ��� .sought    shelter  from the  Flood long years  De-  fore. A heavy fall of snow forced them to stay there during the  winter. Then, one day, they were  able to leave the cave and start  back toward their village. When  they  caught  sight  of  the  head  of   the  inlet,   far   below   them,  they could see that their people,  who wuold have spent the coldest part of the winter at SAUGH-  WAH'-MAIN, had returned to  .. HUN'-AH-CHIN and were, busy  catching herring. As the' brother's neared the village, they met  some children playing.  "Is my wife .home?" asked  the older of.the two.  "No," replied one of the children,' "she .thought you dead,  and has gone to,live with another man at KUHL'-AH-KHAN."  "And has : my wife, KLAYA-  KLAYA-KLYE, gone also?" asked the younger brother.  "No," said the children, "she  still waits for you."  Then, so the"1 story concludes,  the HUN'-AH-CHIN chief called  a great KLUHN-UHN'-AHK; a  celebration pptlatch; to. honor  the faithful wife. People were  invited from - far and wide. A  high swing was erected, and  KLAYA - KLAYA - KLYE' was  placed on. the. seat, but only  chiefs could push her. -This is  the beautiful story of KLAYA-  KLAYA-KLYE'. \.  -" One of the few remaining  stories of the former village of  SLAY'-AH-THLUM;   Brittain Ri-  KULSE ��� Anchor Mountain at the head of Jervis Inlet. The  7,500 foot peak, conical-pyramid in shape, symbolizes preservation  of the ancient Sechelt people from the Flood. (Story in Article 1).

This  young  man. loved(  a    young    woman   "at    WHAN-''  WHOHT'-KWAHM,   at   the   head  of   SMAIT;   Hotham/Sound.   In  the     evening,      SHOO'-LEE-AH  would paddle to WHOHT-SAIL'-  AIN, and run through a pass inland  from  there  to  his   sweetheart's village, visit her, and return home by morning. Her people approved of the match;  his  did not.  : To atone for the slight to their  pride,   the  young  lady's  people  prepared    a    great quantity of  food, loaded it into canoes, and  all    paddled    up to SLAY'-AH-  THLUM    to    call an ET-SOH'-  LOH-MAT^    a    special  form  of  potlach    held    to .show that a  family is important, and not to  be made fun of. Iri true dramatic  fashion, the story ends here, allowing  the  listener  to  imagine  whether or not the young couple,  lived happily ever after.   \  Such stories :as these are assigned no dates. They could have  occurred at any time prior to  the disintegration of the old way  of life that accompanied' intrusion of Europeans. As they are  not necessarily of great .antiquity, however, they cannot be used  to peg habitation, of the Sechelt  people far back in time.  Legends are founded on occurrence which begin as quite natural, although memorable ���-  often tragic ��� events, but which  have gathered super-natural  overtones. A typical legend is  commemorated by a rock painting between KWAY-KAY'-LAH  and CHEH-MUM'-MAIN, below  Salmon Arm, in Sechelt Inlet.  The tragic event described certainly; might well have happened  in actual fact; a man from  SLAHLT, in the act of spearing1  a porpoise, was pulled overboard  and drowned. But now some embroidery is added. For long  after, peopler passing in their'  canoes would see the hunter in'  spirit form, sitting in a niche in  the cliff above the scene of hisj  death. They would call to him,:  but he would" not come, down.;  To show that this .was ho or-;  dinary accident, but the-work of  TCHAIN'-KO, the serpent, the;  embodiment Of evil, the head of  avserpent, not "the likeness of aj  porpoise; is portrayed oh the/  cliff near the niche where in the  soirit sat' ' -' '' ~  A man from TCHAH-CHEH-!  LAITH'-TEN-UM had died, so  another legend runs, and was interred according to the manner  of the times, above ground, on.  SIHL'-LAYK, the very ancient'  burial island below KLAY'-KO,^  the Sechelt Rapids. Not long:  after he had been laid to rest, J  the people of the village saw a,  STAH'- LAH - SHAN; a killer;  whale; swim up to the island.^  "Would yeu like to come hunting  deals with me?" The whale, the;  Indian's embodiment of surface,'  visible evil, as TCHAIN'-KO,,  the serpent, was of deep, in-'  visible evil, asked the buried  man's spirit.  As the villagers watched, they  saw two killer-whales swimming  away.  Legends, like stories, are ageless. All that can be said is that  they took place "a long time  ago."  Myths are explanations created at some time during a people's primitive, imaginative  state, to explain why certain  phenomena appear as they do.  While many stories were mere-  If You  from envelopes to  60 page booklets  call us for advice  ly village history, unknown beyond a small radius, niyths were  common to the entire nation;  that is, from KAY-KAH-LAH'-  KE-IM; Port Mellon; on the  West, to KOH'-KWEN-EETS;  Lang Bay; on the West. The  fundamental mythology would  differ very little from one peb-:  pie to another within the boundaries within which marriages  andr other ceremonies brought  villages together; more as these  boundaries were  crossed.  One phenomenon all peoples  haves found necessary to explain  is creation. In Sechelt mythology, the world was created by  the HUK-AHLS'. These creators  can quite justifiably be referred  to as gods, since all mention of  their actions implies human  form.

The largest convention in..the:  history of the Liberal Party ill  B.cT was recently held in Vancouver, when close to 600 delegates     and     guests  > attended.

All M.P.'s  and M.L.A.'s ���  holding B.C. seats took an active j  part in the proceedings. j  Elected   president   of  thev as-j  ���sociation   for   a   two-year   iermj  was businessman Lawrence Joli-f  vet  of Vancouver.

He strikes  when   he   believes his  enemies  are weakest. Oh the basis of the  premier^ record of calling five  elections in just over ten years  Perrault    indicated    that    snap  elections     could     come  at any  time. Because of this, he urged,  Liberals should nominate candidates in every riding at the earliest opportunity.
