The first. alarm was sounded  at about' "4:45 and was. left apparently out but with a fire crew  and hose, ready for action. The  second alarm came at 6:30 when  strong winds fanned the blaze  into action.. All three fire trucks  attended.  The structure of the old house  which predates 1934 was left reasonably intact but the inside was  damaged' considerably.  Some low pressure trouble  was experienced at one hydrant  down hill and at Tuesday night's  council meeti"g the problem was  discussed and a check will be  made to see what can be done  about correcting the fault. The  problem, is a technical one involving,- reservoir- height- and  pressure.

Two councils OK  No-toll proposal  Below is a copy of the letter sent to the village councils at Sechelt and Gibsons relating to the move by B.C. Telephone Company  to have tolls removed between the Sechelt and Gibsons exchanges.  This letter was placed before Sechelt council on Wednesday eve- :  'min of last week resulting in that council's approval of the. move.  Tuesday night of this week it went before Gibsons council and gained further approval. :'. ���-:������'. \'f-  Next the telephone company will discuss the problems with Gibsons and Sechelt Chambers of Commerce. They meet with the Gibsons chamber on Mon., Feb. 17. and at Sechelt on Mori., Feb. 24.  The company letter follows:  Progress as created by man made improvements moves us for-  -ward and we are often subjected to changes previously unforseen.  When we took over the telephone system in 1954 from the Government Telegraph and Telephone Service this area was operated as a  manual exchange, that is the subscriber contacted the operator by  removing the handset from.the switchhook or hand generator, either  of which brought a signal; to the operator. In November 1960 we installed an automaticsystem throughout the area which eliminated  local operators ^arid-required operators to handle only long distance  and informational calls:" '  Throughout a large part of British Columbia, especially on the  lower mainland, telephone ^service has advanced to the point where,  customers are able to dial their own station to station calls by a system called direct distance dialing. It is our plan within the next year  or two to put this type of operation into Gibsons, Port Mellon , Sechelt and Pender Harbour. This would of course mean the elimina-,  tion of all operators from the Gibsons office.  On several occasions over the past .'two years we have been asked why we do not have free calling between the exchanges of Gibsons  Port Mellon and Sechelt. This is something which could be put into  effect simultaneously or following Direct Distance Dialing. It must  be realised however that if the toll charges are eliminated it would  first of all greatly increase calling, which would necessitate additional facilities, both inside and,put of the offices, requiring more maintenance and would conseqveptly cost the company more and there--;.  - fore--* Mgbef^eVo^mottUtT^  Under our system-wide 'method, telephone rates for any area are  arrived at in accordance with the number of telephones within a free  calling area. As an example Gibsons and Port Mellon have a combined total, of 1496 telephones, within the free calling' area at present.  A group oneexchangefcfor^manual telephone service only, without  24" hour operation. Groups-two is from 1 to 1000 telephones. Group  three is from 1001 to 2M0;;This is the group that Gibsons is in at the  present time. By adding the 783 telephones iri Sechelt to the present  ,1495 telephones in Gibsons and Port Mellon we would have a total  of 2278 which would put them all in Rate Group four* This would  mean anincrease m^mohthly rental for Gibsons, Port Mellon and  Sechelt subscribers^ as outlined below.

Elphinstone,.  ���  Early in  the  afternoon  a  toboggan with four scouts slid off  jcourse  into a  rocky  ravine.  /; The accident left Mike Slrellot  foith     a    leg injury,  and  C'eof  rpram with a head injury. Mike  ,,had to be lashed to a toboggan  ��nd hoisted from tne ravine before first aid  could be applied.  Geof was able to climb out with  help from other scouts.  f Troop first aiders David Bur-  "?itt and Pete Rigby with Scoutmaster A. Rainer attended boys  .both of whom had to be transported down to the' snowline on  toboggans,  the  trip  down  being  [difficult at times as the oboggan  Jhad  to  be  lifted  over  a   small  jstream which had cut ehanr.eis.  an the'snow pack.  |  But ,the boys worked together  ?as a team arid brought the boys  jdown in relative comfort.  4, Assistant     Scoutmaster    John  Ferrare with first aiders drove  jthe    boys     to  Gibsons Medical  ���^Clinic  for' attention.   Later  the  rboys     were     transferred to St.  fMary's hospital for observation.  'i   Scouing aim is to be prepared  ;'tq help others, and the boys of  'the first Gibsons troop lived up  ;to that aim.-  Calvary Baptist Church of Gibsons has bought the old Gibson  Memorial church for ��500 and  will move it as soon as possible.  ' This information was supplied  Gibsons council Tuesday night  by letter from Jariies Marshall,  Baptist church official.  The church became the property of the village council when it  bought the building and grounds  from the United Church congregation when it moved into its  new church in the Bay;area. The  building will be moved to a Sunshine Coast Highway site.  Councillor Fred Feeney was  selected to attend an area garbage disposal meeting Thursday  night, Feb. 20, in the Health  Centre. ���' ��� v  A request from Les Peterson  for the building of a museum on  the bank side.of the old church  cemetery was not looked on  with favor. The request was left  open t0 see what other site would  be available, near the library  and health centre.  Council will consider lengthening the widened road strip passing the old reservoir on School  road. Councillor Feeney was- of  the opinion the present widened  strip is too short for manoeuver-  ability at that point. .  Councillor Sam Fladager was  of   the   opinion   a   rumble   was  growing over Prowse road area  parking problerii in connection  with the boat ramp which is to  be placed at the Dbttom of  Prowse Road by the Chamber of  Commerce. The matter was left  for further study.  Accounts" totalled $1,729;60 of  which $1,081 was covered by winter works projects, the remainder, by roads work, fire protect  tion and general expense.  Council decided to advertise a  warning to motorists who continue to park contrary to village  bylaws in the business section.  Council offered support to a  request from the B.C. Aircraft  Owners and Pilots association  for the establishment /of a B.C.  Aeronautics Commission to assist aviation generally and help  in the establishment of air parks,  attract tourists and help aviation  generally.

Trustees ���  had in mind representatives having to travel from Gambier and  Bowen Islands and from, the top  end of Sechelt Peninsula twice^  This  they  thought unnecessary.  The trustees were given a  pleasant surprise-when a letter  from B.C.

Sechelt Waterworks Limited  plans to lay a larger water main  from the Elementary- school  area along the highway towards  Porpoise Bay road in Sechelt  covering a distance of about 450  feet. The pipe will be one-and-a-  half inch. This information came  before Sechelt council meeting  Wednesday night of last week.  The fire department financial  statement was presented to  council and in turn council  thanked the firemen for the good  work they had done during the  past year.  A copy of the school board  budget was received and held  over until the next meeting to  give councillors more time to  look it over. The problem of  street lighting was passed to  Councillor William Swain for a  check with B.C. Hydro and the  next budget. Councillor Bernel  Gordon intimated he was about  ready to start placing trees and  will start on Inlet street.  Three more waterfront houses  will be removed. A permit for  their removal was passed by  council.  Council decided to delay appointment of representatives to  the  Dominion   Centennial   com  mittee until it had more information available and could line up  the right men for the job. Utterances by councillors and  - Chairman Chr'stine Johnston  did not hold out high hopes for  any sizeable sum of centennial  money for use in the Sechelt  area.  The Sechelt-Gibsons Municipal Airport financial statement  was present by Councillor Swain  who is one of two representatives on the airport committee  from Sechelt the other is Councillor Sam Dawe. The statement  showed,., the airport committee  had in the bank a total of $4,-  436,' available for future operations.

Telephone Company said it would not introduce the move  again unless citizens made the demand themselves.  Most local subscribers have regretted voting against the free  toll plebiscite and many have asked if the issue can be re-opened.  The answer seems to be only if enough organizations, official bodies,  and individuals petition for toll free service between here and Vancouver. .--.-'".'  It is now up to city council, the Chamber, of Commerce, Council  of Women and other groups and private citizens, to press the telephone company for the service now being enjoyed by subscribers  who had the foresight to support the plebiscite when it was first  introduced.  Nearly all business concerns and most homes would make use  of this service and surely few would object to paying a slight increase on their monthly phone bill to enjoy the privilege of a toll-  free line.  The tolls come off the Deas tunnel on April 1. This action was  prompted by agitation from ..chambers, of commerce ?in the. area affected. A similar plan of acUon could result in the tolls coming off  the telephones-about the same time.  Not much for us?  There is a general feeling among authorities in this area that  such places as Sechelt-and Gibsons will not fare too well as regards  financial benefit when it comes time to allot funds available for the  1967 Centennial year in Canada. v  According to the Canadian Centenary Council, many groups are  already actively engaged in worthwhile Centennial projects across  the country. Scholarship funds, special international meetings, exchange visits between various sections of the country, museums,  parks, historical restoration and collections, special buildings, city  development, and many more are part of the growing list. The Federated Women's Institutes of Canada, for example, has decided on a  number of projects including an expansion of its northern programs,  restoration of its founder's homestead, publication of the story of  the handicrafts of each province, a physical fitness program among  its members and the encouragement of interest in local history.  From the look of things it would not appear likely that smaller  centres are going to get anything like the sums of money each has  ���in miind for their project, even on a matching dollar for dollar basis.  Therefore it would be wise for the various organizations seeking confirmation of their pet project not to be too expectant or too expensive in money matters.  Interest may be a factor  It seems to be an unusual situation for the powers that be in  Victoria to be considering a new chartered bank for this province,  to be known as the Bank of British Columbia.  ��� Surely they are not considering using it as a depository for United States funds for the development of the Columbia River project.  Yet even the opposition appears to agree with the plan.'  Does it mean that those who now find it difficult to borrow  money through ordinary channels, would be able to do so when the  new bank starts operations, at a lower rate of interest than the six  percent now prevailing?  Under present conditions any resident of British Columbia with  a good credit standing can borrow from their local banker and more  so than ever before.  It is to be hoped the proposed new bank will not saddle the institution with questionable credit rishs that might have been turned  down by other banks, thus jeopardizing its capital structure, made  up of funds to be used for other purposes.  It would be wise for those in power in Victoria to examine the  history and records.as*.to-.why,the following banks had to be taken  over by other responsible institutions ��� such as the Bank of Vancouver, Sovereign Bank, Home Bank, Merchants Bank and the Union  Bank, all of whom suffered either poor management or loss of capital structure.  As the average official of Canada's chartered banks is now well  paid, who could the new bank get to manage branches, people who  could be considered entirely satisfactory in every respect. It takes  years of intensive training to make a first class banking official  capable of management. /  To those who have any thought of establishing a new bank; stop,  look and investigate. Perhaps this has been done but if the idea is  to follow the rather loose system of the banks on the Pacific coast  of the United States, there could be complications. The battle going on in the United States over interest rates on deposits is leading  to some weird setups. Is this what Victoria has in mind? If so, the  banking picture in British Columbia will be interesting, at least.'  On behalf of the chambers'of  commerce at Pender ^Harbor-*'  Sechelt and Gibsons, the following information on federal  grants for centennial projects  has been supplied by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in  the hope it. will be of use to officials who will be desirous :Of  obtaining such information:  The National .Centennial Adr  ministration will make grants  towards the cost of local- cen-;  tennial projects subject to the  following conditions:  Applications for a federal  grant towards a local ceptennial  project must be made to the  province.  The province must approve of  the project and must assure the  National Centennial Administration that Vz of the cost will be  met jointly by the province arid  the initiating agency.  The National Centennial Administration will pay up to Vz  of the estimated cost of approved projects, the grant being  made to the province.  A project which is eligible for  other forms of federal aid will  also be eligible for centennial  grant provided that the aggregate federal contribution does  not exceed 50% of the cost.  The    total    amount    available  under  this  program  will  be  $1  ���per capita of the province based  on the population at June 1, 1963.  The project must have a reasonable prospept of being completed by the time of the centennial observances.  Anticipated . revenues from a  project will be taken into consideration in determining the  amount of the. federal contribution. A project must be of a  lasting nature and might include  for example:  The  acquisition  arid  construe-  Mainly  about  tion of buildings, parks an:l  other capital works,  The acquisition of buildings o?  historic   or   architectural   merit,  The restoration of buildings, of  historic or  architectural merit,  The writing and publishing of  books,  The composition of musical  works and  The creation and completion of  paintings and sculpture and  other works of art, but does not  include any part of pageants or  celebrations or administrative  expenses of local committees.

Control at present is vested  in the hands of a very limited  group, not responsible to the  taxpayer.  Dictation of policy by a non-  representative board is undemocratic and open to question.  A hospital predominantly supported by taxes should be governed by a publicly-elected  board.     .  I think these questions are  uppermost in the minds of most  Peninsula taxpayers and would  invite your comment.  A public hospital should not  have to operate under a private  hospital society.���T.

THIS WEEK'S  RECIPE  BIG MEAL  FROM  LITTLE FISH  With canned sardines one of  the cheapest and nost readily  available staples on the market,  it's an unthrifty homemaker  who doesn't know a few interesting ways of preparing them.  Here is a recipe for a casserole which teams the savoury  little fish with creamy mashed  potatoes, tomatoes and cheese.  Most folk, even those who say  they don't like sardines, will en-  vjoy this dish. Moreover, the  cook will find it quick and easy  to make ��� especially if she has  mashed potatoes on hand, or  uses the new instant mashed  potatoes.  SARDINE SUPPER  2 cans' {V-A ounces each) Can-  ���    adian  sardines  2 cups   seasoned  mashed  rota-  toes or 1 package (3,ounces)  instant   mashed  potatoes  .2 tablespoons   chopped   parsley  2 ripe , tomatoes,  sliced  % cup finely grated cheese  , Drain sardines. If using the  instant mashed potatoes, prepare according to package directions. Combine potatoes and  parsley; mix thoroughly. Spread  in the bottom of a well-greased,  1-quart baking dish having dimensions about 6x8x2 inches.  Arrange sardines on top of the  potatoes. Cover with tomato  slices. Top with cheese. Bake  in a moderate oven, 350 deg. F.,  for 25 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and the cheese  is melted. Makes 4 servings.  * * *  Here's a sandwich idea that  will score a direct hit when refreshments call for something  special. If the occasion is a  bridal shower, the tiny heart-  shaped sandwich loaves will  highlight the party's theme. The  hostess will cheer for them too,  since much of the preparation  can be done ahead of time.  Bread hearts are cut from two  kinds of bread, spread with.fillings, and each little loaf cover  ed with a creamy cheese-and-  nut frosting. After storage- in  the refrigerator, the loaves are  popped into a hot oven for a  few moments just before serving.

J. Rogers & Co. Ltd.  SUMNYCREST PLAZA ��� Gibsons Legislative views  (By TONY GARGRAVE, M.L.A..  -Mackenzie Consituency.)  We have reason .to be proud  of our education system here in  British Columbia, but as always  there are new needs and new  problems. The present crisis in  higher education in the province  is shared by. all school systems  in Canada.  Recently I attended a conference at the University of Victoria entitled The Emerging System of Higher Education in British Columbia^ Alt that conference  Edward F. Sheffield, director of  research fo rthe Canadian University Foundation at Ottawa,  had some interesting facts and  figures.  Enrollment in the past, seven  years at the University of British Columbia and the University  of Victoria has doubled and will  double again in the next seven  years. This is no temporary expansion . which the erection of  wooden huts can solve.  Ordinary population growth  plus the fact that a higher percentage of young, people are going further in education, has resulted in this crisis. I always  feel unhappy when I meet young  people in the community who  could do well at university, but  for some reason or other have  failed to attend. In the old days  people made opportunity by going -west to free land or north to  the gold fields. Now young people who want to grasp at opportunity go to university.  This population growth which-  is very evident in British Columbia has collided with a philosophical idea. That idea is that  opportunity for higher education  shall be provided for everyone  qualified. This is largely an unwritten idea, but we have responded to it and must continue  to respond.  There are 51 universities in  Canada that give degrees and  one third of  that, number have  - sprung into their new status  within the past seven years.  Some of them have been junior  colleges which have now been  given degree granting status  such as the University of Notre  Dame at Nelson, and Victoria  College at Victoria. Our univer-  , sity teaching staffs have doubled in the last seven years and  annual university expenditures  have tripled.  The latest Canada Year Book  tells us that we are spending  one thousand million dollars  each year on elementary and  secondary education in Canada,  arid we are spending almost two  hundred million dollars on higher education each year in Canada if we include scholarship and  bursary money given directly to  individual university students  Mr. Sheffield at the conference  believed   that   higher   education  costs  in   Canada  will  approach  'two percent of the gross national product in 1971.  Doctor Norman MacKenzie,  the former president of the University of < British - Columbia,  though^ he had problems when  he became president just after  World War *n. Doctor Norman  MacKenzie never turned anybody away and I hope that the  new president, Doctor John MacDonald will not need to turn anybody away.  Believe it or not but action in  higher education is a political issue. That is, higher education in  Canada cannot progress without  additional government revenue  either from provincial, federal  of municipal governments. The  supply of this money is political  in its best sense in that it is a  problem of priorities. Do we  want guns _or butter, roads or  schools, welfare payments or  bridges? The assignment of  these priorities is a political decision as is the assignment of all  priorities- within the sphere of  government..  4       Coast News,  Feb.  13,  1964.  Oops! Sorry!

Powell River proved her greater strength as their game against  Elphie ended with the score 60-  27.. The loss is surely due to the  fact that the cheerleaders did  not accompany them on this trip.

For many years, when his family were young, Mr. Campbell  summered at the Creek, travelling back and forth each weekend on the Union boats. He was  an avid fisherman, and the time  spent at the Creek was always  a source of great pleasure to  him.  When at last he severed the  ties with the contracting business he owned in Vancouver,  Mr. Campbell came with his  wife to live permanently.at their  sea side home. In his own way  an amateur naturalist, Mr.  Campbell would mark the comings and goings of the different  birds and animals, and was especially interested in the many  species��� of ducks and. seabirds  which visit the Roberts Creek  area from time to time.  Mr. Campbell was a veteran  of the South African war as well  as World War I. In the latter he  was with the 6th Field Company,  2nd Battalion Canadian Engineers.  Predeceased by his only son  Flight Sgt. Duncan Eric in World  War n, Mr. Campbell is survived by his wife and two daughters Mrs. Harry Purdy (Dorothy) of West Vancouver and Mrs.  J. C.

While  this should mean lower interest  rates it also raises the question  of inflation. Prices for some  months have been edging upwards. One thing which Canadians must therefore ask.themselves is whether .this is a temporary phenomenon or whether  it means that, by steadily increasing the nation's money supply, we are in for an inflation-  ANNOUNCEMENT  VOLKSWAGEN PACIFIC  1190 West Georgia  (in downtown Vancouver)  ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF  Dick Reichelt  TO THEIR SALES STAFF  FOR A NEW VOLKSWAGEN  OR A GOOD USED CAR  Phone Dick collect  683r6841 or 277-3064  'T: SALE  JAY BEE FURNITURE  GIBSONS,  B.C.

Over the past 12 months th&  volume of money in circulation  in Canada has gone up by nearly $1.5 billion. It has gone up by;  nearly 10% at a time when our/  national output of goods and services has risen by only about  6%. In other words, the Bank of  Canada, with Finance Minister  Walter Gordon's approval, has  been pumping more money into  the nation's financial system  than the latter has been producing as saleable products in one  form or another. I  Mr. Gordon referred to this  process in a recent speech. He  said that (our) "monetary policy has been in tune with the  needs of our expanding economy. Our money supply has been  increased ... and the spread between Canadian and U.S. interest rates has narrowed."  It is reassuring to note that an  increase in our money- supply  will not automatically produce  an upward thrust in prices. A  good deal depends on the state  of our economy; how'���many people are unemployed and how  much excess capacity exists in  our manufacturing and other industries. More money in the  hands of consumers, under these  circumstances, may merely call  for additional production., Costs,  u n d e r these ��� circumstances,  miglit^ abtuallyf; decline rather  than: increase. It is only when  most of bur, capacity is being  utilized ���: and "when we reach a  condition of reasonably full employment that shortages and demands . for exceptional wage increases really begin to drive prices upward in earnest.  Mr. Gordon's serenity is therefore based upon the view that  there is still a good deal of slack  in our ���conoriiy. As long as there  are fewer jobs than there are  people willing to work further  budget deficits are tolerable. Also, as long as more money in  circulation will permit our industries to expand their production runs and reap some of the  economies of mass production  we are probably on the right  track. For this reason an expanded money supply coupled  with lower interest rates and a  higher volume of consumer  spending may continue to be in  the, national interest. There is a  limit however. Once our human  and other resources are fully  employed and once prices begin  to rise at a rate greater than our  improvement in productivity we  must call a halt to deficit spending and stop pumping money into the nation's financial bloodstream at a rate in excess of'our  ability to produce usefur goods  and services.

No Collections    .  (By LES PETERSON)  Reg Paul, last of a line of  carvers, has made a totem pole  expressive of the entire Sechelt  concept of good versus evil. Reg  explains that this concept can  be interpreted figuratively as  well as literally. The serpent,  whale, beaver and condor can  be accepted as real creatures,  each possessive of its particular  degree of good or evil, or they  can be interpreted as symbols  representing degrees of good  and evil inherent in ithe human  being.  One is inclined, inevitably, to  think  that  this  symbolic  refer-  ��� ence to the ego and the id has  : been  added  since  contact  with  . modern   European   culture,   but  Reg    Paul   maintains. that   the  symbolism was present always;  that there has been no cultural  borrowing ' frqnr Sigmund Freud  or  other  psychologists.  In  any  case,   this   psychology,   as   the  Sechelts symbolized it, coincided  more 'closely with their way of  life than does  any one of our  many   psychological   schools   of  thought    fit    our   complex   and  diverse   present-day   culture.  /Examined   in   this   light,   the  native Indian  belief is  seen to  be not at alb simple, but most  intricate/Indian  people,   raised  in their own culture, learned to  peer   into,   and   to   comprehend  clearly,     inner    drives    which  sometimes  impelled  the  human  creature;   to.   commit    wicked  deeds. Understood as subjective  forces, these drives were given  objective expression ��� the drive,  blind,'S undirected,    from    deep  within,     became    TCHAIN'-KO,  the serpent������ a complex symbol  in. all primitive mythologies.  Some Sechelt people alive at  the' time" of this writing can  tell stories of-their personal experiences with TCHAIN'-KO.

On way to seek to grasp this  philosophy in relation to modern  Western philosophy is to1 find  some one emotion present in one  culture and-absent in the other.  Such an emotion is anger. Well-  known as a component of a personality reared in a culture  adapted from civilizations located west of the Tigris-Euphrates,  it seems to have v been entirely  lacking in the way of life of the  North-pacific Indian. Webster  ^defines anger as "a strong passion or emotion of displeasure,  and usually antagonism, excited  by: a sense of injury or insult."  While the typical Western response to injury or insult tends  to be sought in physical or economic retribution ��� in a demand  of   blood   Or  money  from  the  putative   wrong-doer,   the    aboriginal   Indian    sought  satisfaction  in  the  ET-SOH'-LOH-MAT;  the ceremony in which the family wronged established its  true,  greatness through' giving to the  perpetator  of   the  wrong' more  than  he  could  give  back.   The  family .whose marriagable members     SHOO-LEE-UH's     family  would    not,   accept    descended  upon  SLAY'-AH-THLUM,  not  to  demand but to give.  ���   Perhaps  this  recourse  in  the  gentle retort  can  be  explained  by   CHASS-KHAIN,   the   condor,  the   symbol   expressive   of   the  power of good. He' is the brain;  "the eye of the hand," the Se- .  chelts   called   him.   The, brain,  clearly, was :expected to oppose,  and to  cause  the jhand to  oppose, forces of evil. Reg Paul,  : steeped in the lore of his people while a young boy, as hereditary    chief,    by   his   maternal  grandmother, ,whose roots penetrated far back into the old na-.  tive way of life, emphasizes the  fact that the condor's power can  dominate;and:defeat that of the  serpent:- The ego can,  if it; so  desires,' master the id;   good is  supreme over evil. When insulted, the human being cannot call  oh TCHAIN'-KO, the completely  detached force of evil;, he can,  however,    appeal -to   .CHASS'-  KHAIN,  his  protector.  He  can  repay a hurt, then, not/with another hurt, but only with an act  of  generosity.   "If he  demands  of you your coat, give him your  cloak also; if he ask you to go  with him a mile,* go with him  twain?"  There is extant a Sechelt legend which illustrates, at least  negatively, the power in the  force of good. Two hunters, very  close companions, were . seeking  mountain-goats on the ��� steep  mountainside above SKHULP.  The one hunter lowered the  other down' an impossible cliff  to a rock ledge, below which  the cliff fell sheer again to the  ground far below. But the first  hunter, although he had never  before expressed this feeling,  was actually very envious of  his friend's prowess in hunting.  Overpowered now by a passion  of envy, he dropped the rope  and left.  Upon searching the ledge on  which he was thus abandoned,  the second hunter discovered a  Another Show Window?

Patiently, he. fashioned his  rope into three small harnesses.  When     the     young  birds  were  jable to fly, he fastened to each  'a   harness,   which   was   in'turn  ^attached   to   the   remainder   of  jhis rope.  By flying--as- strongly  j as   they  could,   the  young   con-  tidors were able to slow the hunt-  ���^er's descent sufficiently that he  landed safely at the base of the  -cliff.  \   In a story on which the typical  European had been reared, this  would  not  be. the   end.   In  the  literature and mythology of ancient Greece, on which the ethical structure of-modern Western  cultures is largely based, a spe-  :'- cial diety, Nemesis, was contriv-  ; ed to avenge the malefactor on  behalf   of   the  gods.   Inspector  Javert,   one  of   the  most   compelling characters in nineteenth  century literature,  took his life  when he could no longer justify  his pursuit of Jean Val jean,,-yet  could not,,by his code of ethics,  refrain    from    his. pursuit:   The  great   interest   in   the   story   of  the Count of Monte Cristo lies,  not    in.  the  wrongly-imprisoned  man's escape, but in his destruction of his villifiers.  But, to the Sechelt people, the  story of the three condors is  quite complete. The powers of  these creatures was only for  good; not for evil. They could,  only help save the wronged '  man; not punish the wrongdoer. The serpent ��� blind, formless ��� was beyond reach of the  will either to begin or cease  action. The condor ��� "the eye  of the hand" ��� represented the  mind itself. So, wickedness did  not dwell in the human mind,  but originated in some  obscure  area beyond its ken. The mind  could instigate only good, and  could counter ��� evilv only with  good.  It   might   be   presumed,   from  Che viewpoint of Western culture,  that such a philosophy, excusing  the    individual    from    personal  blame, as it seems to do, borders'on fatalism. Perhaps it does.  And perhaps Western culture ���  Western     implying     European,  but     excluding     native     North  American   ' culture ��� has     not  tried    too    hard   to   understand  the    complexities    of    so-called  fatalism.   For,   among  a  people  who     live     by this  philosophy,  while an individual who wrongs  another   of  his   kind   might   be  absolved  from  blame  on  metaphysical  grounds,   he   is   by  no  means exonerated socially.  In the North American culture, where social forces were  far more powerful than other  forces, and where rank itself  depended in large; part on behavior, the commission of an  untoward act, followed by the  disgrace of receiving gifts from  the affronted party, would have  brought 'about an intolerable-  loss of face ��� another term with  which European philosophers  have failed to come to grips.  CHASS'-KHAIN,     epitome   , of  good, could shame, but he could  not destroy TCHAIN'-KO, epitome of evil. Evil would go on,  just as good would go on.  SWAHT-KAY'-AM, the Thunder-  bird, or Thunder-god, could destroy STAHL'-AH-SHAN, the  killer-whale. The whale was a  real creature, not just a, symol.  He could be destroyed by man  as well as by the Thunderbird.  But the destruction of one killer-  whale did not destroy all killer-  whales. And even the ^Thunder-  bird could not destroy the serpent, evil incarnate.  TCHAIN'-KO  and  STAHL'-AH-  SHAN were not the only manifestations of evil. The SKOHK'-  EEN,    lesser    evil   spirits,   pervaded   the   environment   of   the  native peoples. In addition, certain, localities were bad or fearful.     The    sharp bare peak of  SLIAM-KAY'-AM,   rising   directly  before  the  village  of  HUN'-  AH-CHIN,   crackled  with   lightning    and    thunder    before    a  storm.   SHAK'-KWOHT,   a   hole  in the solid rock of the shore in  LEAL'-KO-MAIN,  in addition to '  attracting  the  first lightning  of  a   storm,   was   poisonous.  Even  in fair weather, anyone entering  the tiny cave would die, so the  Indians  believed.  (To be continued)  Complete Line of  Automotive & Industrial Parts  DAILY DEUVERY TO SECHELT  .

At Port Mellon, a determined home team;  playing a typical cup tie brand  of soccer, held the Usually powerful Merchants forward line to  just one goal and then, penetrated the opposing defence for the  equalizer. This tied game resulted in the Merchants dropping yet  another point behind the league  leading Sechelt Res. School in  the race for the pennant.  Meanwhile, Gibsons United, at  home to Roberts Creek, did riot  find the muddy ground and hea- .  vy ball to their liking at all. In  spite of having at least 75% of  the play, they found the strong  defensive tactics of the visitors  difficult to pierce more than  twice and had to concede three  goals and the points..    -  Games  scheduled ^for  Sunday,  Feb. 16 are as folows:  Gibsons Merchants vs. Sechelt  Res.
