Home building  continues even pace  Home building in the area from Port Mellon to Pender Harbour  maintains its consistency with more than 100 homes built during  1963. The actual figure was 104 for '63 with 105 for '62, 104 'for '61,  105 for '60 and 103 for '59, a total of 521 for the five years.  Commercial 'construction according to the 1963 sqrvey made by  the B.C. Hydro and Power Authority at Sechelt did not reach last  year's $15,251,000 because 1963 development operations were on a  minor scale. Total commercial and industrial construction for 1963  was slightly more than twice home construction reaching $1,621,200  against $804,000 for new homes.  'Among the larger commercial projects constructed during the  year were the $16,000 Wigard Shoe store and the $47,000 Lang block  in Sechelt. and in Gibsons, the $40,500 bank building and the $35,000  Health Centre.  In,the unorganized area Canadian Forest Products. No. 4 machine  $300,000 plus and the $40,000 Salvation Army Camp dining hall were  included. One big boost for the unorganized area building total was  the new St. Mary's Hospital, now under construction, to cost $950,000.  The new Twilight Theatre just outside Gibsons boundary is also part  of the construction picture.

Allan Ker and Associates Limited.  Several minor, but nevertheless important points arose from  this which required reference to  the comptroller of water rights  arid the department of highways.  Secretary and Trustee EL S.  Johnstone has, been in Victoria at  Plan tighter  bus control  As the result of a motion presented after discussion of the  problem future school bus transportation contracts will contain  necessary disciplinary measures  associated with the transport of  pupils so as to give bus drivers  and the school a better basis on  which to control such travel.  This motion was moved by  Reg. Spicer of Pender Harbour  after a short general discussion  on events of a minor nature reported to have taken place on  buses recently.  Owing to Powell River school  not taking part in this year's  drama festival for Powell River  and this part of the Sunshine  Coast area there may be drama  nights at Pender Harbour and  Elphinstone schools somewhere  about Education week . These  productions will not be festival  events.  Property owners involved in  land which may be available for  school purposes will be asked  by letter to place with the board  sketches of the land involved  and the price they are asking.  The two students to take part  in the Education in Democracy  tour which takes place each  year will be Sherwood Hayes,  Sechelt, grade 12 and Nancy  Inglis, Gibsons grade 11. Both  attend Elphinstone secondary  school and will visit the legislature while it is in session.  the request of the trustees to obtain clarification by these government departments of the various problems which had arisen.  It was learned that extensive  reconstruction and minor relocation of the Francis Peninsula  road would require additional  precautions and expense to protect the pipeline and also that  higher than anticipated tender  prices for rock work would result  in the project costing slightly  more than originally estimated  with the revised total cost now  being approximately $255,000.  This increase in cost, amounting to $20,000, has been approved  by the governmental departments  concerned. In view of the benefits available under the Munici-  . pal Winter Works program and  the, Municipal Development and  Loan Act it is estimated that the  larger portion of this increased  cost will be absorbed, and the  balance to be borne by the water users will depend on the additional number of users which  have yet to signify their intention of connecting to the system  during the first year of operation.  Under the worst conditions the  increase in rates should not exceed 40 to 50 cents per month  and any such increase would be  of  a temporary nature  only.  Upon Mr. Johnstone's return  from Victoria and report to the  trustees it is anticipated that a  major contract will be awarded  so that work may get underway  forthwith.  If all goes well therefore, residents of the South Pender Harbour area should be in a position  to enjoy the benefits of a district water system this coming  summer.  "Well, we're a one-car family  again!"  Council  offers idea  for bridge  Gibsons council will take a  hand in recommending to the  provincial roads department in  Victoria that improvement is desirable at . Granthams bridge,  where so many accidents have  occurred, jt was announced at  Tuesday night's  meeting.  Suggestion that this be done  came from provincial authorities  because the bridge and adjacent  areas are outside the jurisdiction  of Gibsons council. However  council will offer by letter the  idea that the road be widened on  the south end by taking in a slice  of the Tweedale or other property. -  The   problem   came  up   when  Chairman   A.   E.   Ritchey   was  commenting on talks he had with  an official of the roads depart-;  ment on  various  road problems,;  in the area.,  While discussing a provisional;  budget for the year it was revealed  that   considerable  work ^will.  have to be done on the , village  water . system.

Clerk   Jules   Mainil   informed  council   he   expected, to   see   a  heavy year in home construction  for  Gibsons.   Three  new  homes  were  before  the  Jan.  6   council  meeting   and   permits   granted.  Mr. Mainil said he could see at  least four or five more coming  up  in   a   very   short   time  with  more  to follow.  Accounts totalling $442.19 were  checked and ordered paid. Mr.  Mainil reported that tax collections for last year reached the  98.1 percent mark with all delinquent taxes being paid up.       \  Do you know?  Want' to know what the firemen in Gibsons and Area Volunteer Fire department have been  doing during the last year?  Would you also like to know  just what state the fire department and equipment is really in  and how the. department is. keeping abreast of needs in its limited budget?  Well ��� all this information can  be gleaned at the annual meeting of the volunteer fire department in Gibsons fire hall at 8  p.m. on Jan. 30. Why not take in  this meeting so the firemen will  not have to report to themselves  only what they already know.  The Sechelt native people have a fascinating, in some respects,  ; an amazing story to tell. Its like cannot now be gleaned from any  S other aboriginal people of the entire B.C. coast; perhaps not from  any other native people anywhere in North America.  While this story pertains specifically to the ancient Sechelt nation, much of it involves timeless myths and legends which concern  j all of mankind.  Many people have willingly contributed bits and pieces of this  , story. Its main details, however, have been related by the late Dan  A Paul, and by Basil Joe. Basil has given hundreds of hours of his  ������ time, not only at his home in Sechelt, but also along almost every  ! inch of his ancestral coastline, throughout which, aboard a vessel  piloted by Jack Gooldrup, he has pointed out and named mountains,  ��� rocks, streams, and ancient homesites, and told of his people's tra-  ,;; ditional way of life. -  It is the author's hope that The Sechelt Story with accounts of  ,' both aboriginal nation and modern trade centre and community, can  '���', be eventually preserved in illustrated book form.  (ARTICLE 1 OF A SERIES)  History is speculation based  on record. Record alone is  < not history. History emerges  ; only when records have been  ; subjected to the art of specu-  i     la'tibn.  Where, in time  and space,  is  our story to begin? The Sechelt  people have an answer to both  ;  parts    of   this    question:    They  were  always  here and right in  the same locality.  Whatever     skepticism     might  ;  exist with regard to this claim,  ;  certainly    some    varied  bits   of  ;   evidence  tend  to  confirm  habitation of the North-Pacific Coast  ;  far into antiquity.  Tom Maclnnes, whose family  brought him to British Columbia  in 1874, made friends with native Indians throughout much of  Vancouver Island and the lower  Mainland. One of the numerous  .stories told him by these, people  was of a time, long ago, when  ^elr^^BceStois 'lived:'h��;-ari'"age"  of great ease arid golden weather and green abundance. Then  Ice Giants came down from the  sky and killed all the trees and  nearly all the animals. Maclnnes relates the experiences of  these people in his Legend of  Ko and Klon, as told to him late  in the nineteenth century:  "Through years and years  of desolation the sky was low  and heavy overhead;   whirl  ing grey and then darker  grey to all black. There were  no colors in the sky. And it  was that way for a hundred  years, and then for a hundred years, and for longer  than all those put together.  Under that dismal roof men  no longer kept count of time.  How could they? For there  was no change in the sky  except that when it was not  raining it was snowing, and  , when it was not grey it was  black; and no time can be  kept by that.  "Stores, indeed, were  handed down by the few survivors to their fewer children; and among them the  great story of one round,  warm, yellow, moving light  in the sky, and one cold but  beautiful moving white light,  changing its fashion of shape  regularly from a horn to a  ball, and back again, and of  lights that .twinkled: farjher.  away'on a-"'shoreless'lake'*of*,  blue overhead; twinkling  with many colors, and bearing tidings of seasons and  changes in the affairs of  men. But after a while and  longer, this story was not  given much credence by  practical hunters, who had  come alive to the reality of  things as they were.  "It was a tale for women  and children and those feeble  in age; although some birds  were yet deluded with it, for  they regularly flew away at  a time after, they were hatched; flew away in faith to find  some truth of it ... .  "But, after  what  time   no  man can tell there came a  day that was a real day. The  sun broke at last through the  thick entanglement of cloud;  shining out of a pool of blue  above, and sending its warm  brightness    down   over   the  desolate world."  Indians    of    northern    British  Columbia  inlets,  which,   according to the stories told Tom Mac- :  Innes,   were  themselves   created  by  glacial  action,   still  point to  grooves    cut   in  granite  shores  and sav, "The ice did that,, long  age."  One of the most interesting,  and one of the most controver-  tial ancient native legends, concerns the Flood. This story, with  but little variation, seems to be  almost universal among peoples  of the northern hemisphere who  nerpetuate their past through  the telling of incidents from it.  Almost invariably, the story involves a mountain, which somehow or other played a part in  saving a tribe or nation from  extinction during this cataclysm.  The fact that this event figures  prominently in Biblical legend  tends to cast doubts on all unrecorded Flood stories.  A classic example of a rebuff  to this ancient legend runs something to this effect: A missionary travelled among people of  the American South-West, teaching stories of the Bible. A few  years later, an anthropologist,  travelling among the same people, and unaware of the fact  that the missionary had worked  among them, was fascinated to  learn that they had a Flood!  story. When ��� all' facts were  known; scholars inferred that  ^the../;aboriginal :,Flppd^tory .had,  "'^edn^leiSr^^'Ifroto^tfie'-'iiMSsibn-  ary, and. simply repeated to the  anthropologist. So, since missionaries had taught among all  native peoples before anthropologists reached them, native  Flood stories have generally suffered from like inference, that  of the Sechelts among others.  Now, however free they may  be with anecdotal stories, native.  (Continued on page 4)  Homework for Sechelt's council  RUSSEL  RD.   FIRE  Monday night's 5:30 p.m. fire  call came from the Allan Pen-  dlebury home on Russell Rd., off  Cannery or Henry Rd. Firemen  responded quickly and soon had  the blaze out. Some refuse behind a stove had caught fire.  Damage was  about $300.  C of C MEETING  Monday night's meeting of  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce  will see the election and installation of the 1964 slate of officers. This meeting will be held  at Danny's Dining room and will  be a dinner meeting starting at  7 p.m. Reports of the various  committees will also be received.  HI-C MEETING  An organization meeting of the  Hi-C club for youths from 15 to  17 years of age will be held Sun.,  Feb. 2, starting at 2 p.m. in the  Christian Education hall of Gibsons United Church. Youths of  all denominations are invited to  attend.  PLAN BANQUET  Mrs. Harriet Newton, district  commissioner of the Sechelt Girl  Guide and Brownie Association  presided at the monthly meeting  at the home of Mrs. Margaret  Lamb. The meeting decided to  hold the annual Mother and  Daughter banquet at the Sechelt  Legion Hall, Monday evening,  Feb. 17.  Scehelt council will have plenty of homework to do. for a while,  Chairman Mrs. Christine Johnston informed council at last  Wednesday night's  meeting.  Reason for the homework remark came during discussion of  a revision of the zoning bylaw  which controls zoning of land  commercial or residential or  both, building restrictions,  heighth of building and where  they must be placed on property. There is also parking restrictions as part of the bylaw.  Many of the clauses in the  present bylaw which came into  operation in 1957 are now. held  by council to be obsolete and  must be revised not only for  present needs but for many  years to come. Council must give  close consideration to what they  intend to change in the bylaw:  The type of problem council  must consider for fire protection,  municipal services such as water  and other needs was propounded  by Mrs Johnston who spoke of  the eventual possibility of a six  storey hotel being erected. Could  it be done? Building requirements call for a building heighth  to be no more than twice the distance of the area from the centre of the thoroughfare to the  property line.  Then there is the problem of  carports at. the side of homes.  Under present restrictions there  QiifflmnHranmiffliiimiraiiimnimnminuiiniinuimniiniimi)  HELP NEEDED!  the OAPO needs help!  The OAPO is the Old Age Pensioners Organization and the  help it requires is the transportation of some of its members  to and from its meeting on the  third Monday of each month  starting at 2 p.m.  If you can help phone the secretary, Mrs. W. Haley at 886-2338  must be certain space between a  house and the side property line.  The desire for carports is increasing and causing council to  take another look at this restriction.  Reason for the bylaw coming  up. for revision is requests covering various parcels of land  seeking to be placed in the commercial category. Others council  would like to have changed.  These parcels of land include  the block west of Clayton's store,  Brewster and Warfield land on  the newly placed Toredo street,  a   lot   behind   Bernel   Gordon's  office, three lots on Dolphin St.  owned by Mrs. P. ^rker, some  Ted Osborne lots, the west side  of Porpoise Bay road from near  Porpoise Bay wharf and all of  the corner at the highway to the  Block B7 owned by Sechelt  Lands.  The zoning bylaw must include  these changes and other revisions council desires, then a pub>  lic hearing will be held to see if  there are any reasons why sucft  zoning should not be allowed. After that council passes the bylaw and send it on to Victoria  for approval.   1  Householders should  know school needs  Practically every household  in this school district has by now  received a copy of the school  board brochure Let's Give Our  Children a Fair Deal in connection with the Jan. 25 referendum  seeking funds for increasing the  now overcrowded school space  in some area.  This will be followed up with  a notification shortly for ratepayers to get out and register  their vote on Sat., Jan. 25.  Here is the wording of the  referendum which the ratepayers will be asked to vote:  Are you in favor of the Board  of School Trustees of School District No. 46 (Sechelt) borrowing  money, without further assent  of the owner-electors, at any  time or from time to time, within Three (3) years from December 31, 1963, by the issue and  sale of debentures bearing interest at a rate not exceeding  Six (6) percent per annum and  payable over a period or periods  not exceeding twenty years from  the    date    or respective dates  thereof, in such principal  amounts as the Board may from  time to time deem necessary to  raise net sums not exceeding in  the aggregate Three Hundred  Thirty-nine Thousand ($339,000),  after payment of discount, commission, brokerage, exchange,  and other expenses with respect  to such issue or sale, for acquiring and developing school-sites  and purchasing, constructing, reconstructing, furnishing and  equipping buildings for school  purposes or . use in connection  therewith and other capital expenditures for school purposes?"  This money will be needed for  expansion of Gibsons Elementary school and. a future site at  Sechelt along with costs of  furnishing these added class  rooms and further construction  at.other schools.  Total sum required is $339,000  but the school districts portion  to be raised will amount to $169,-  500, the remainder being eligible for provincial government  education department grants.

CAMPBELL)  (goast Mjeuis  Fred Cruice, Editor and Publisher       Phone Gibsons 886-2622  Published  every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  P.O.  Box 280,  Gibsons,  B.C.

There is an increasing number of converts to the theory that  Premier Bennett's home-owner grant is an unfair piece of legislation  and among them is a Victoria observer named James H. Nesbitt who  is paid to keep his ear to the political ground and background for a  metropolitan daily called the Vancouver Sun.  In Saturday's Sun after dwelling on the unfairness of the meal  tax as affecting those who eat out and must pay the tax and those  who eat at home and partake of untaxed food, Mr. Nesbitt hits out  at the unfairness of the home-owner grant.  Here is what he wrote in Saturday's Sun:  "This isn't fair, (the tax on meals) but the government appears  so hungry for money it carries on this injustice in perpetuity.  "Of course, this is small potatoes compared to that other government unfairness ��� non-home-owners having to pay taxes to subsidize those people who own homes. Thus one section of the population is forced to pay a Social Credit dividend to another section of  the population..  "Premier Bennett makes a great to-do about how his government's fair to all, and special privileges to none, but when we look  into the cubbyholes we find this isn't necessarily so."  So, dear reader, you see the Coast News is not alone in its stand  on the home-owner grant. Something further can be added to this  unfairness angle. The dynamic policies announced by the premier  show that he is taking the credit for giving municipalities money  rightly theirs.  ��� If there were no home-owner grant the municipalities would collect their taxes direct from property owners. By using the homeowner grant, $85 for 1964 and $100 in 1965 and thereafter, the premier-  finance minister can record in government books that his dynamic  policies are giving the municipalities $18,600,000 in the' present fiscal  year, money which they would automatically collect if there was no  home-owner grant.  A further notation on the unfairness theme can be made by suggesting that only those people who will be paying up to $100 in assessment taxation or more than $100 will really get full benefit. There  are quite a few taxpayers who will only obtain the benefit of the  amount of taxation they pay less $1. In 1965 one taxpayer for example will pay only $1 on a $75 assessment while his next door neigh-  Dor will pay only $1 on a $100 assessment. Why does one man get a  bonus of $25?  As Mr. Nesbitt writes, the premier makes a great to-do about  his fairness to all with special privileges to none. He will have a  hard time proving it when the populace really starts figuring out  what is going on. You can fool some of the people some of the time  but not forever.  Unexpected rewards  Habits of all kinds, good, bad or indifferent, are part of the  equipment of every normal human being. The indifferent ones, such  as the routine one follows in dressing, putting on the left or the right  shoe first, shaving different areas of the face in the same order every day, may be the most important. The actions become automatic  and leave the mind free to pursue a train of thought or, more likely  in the early morning, drift aimlessly. If one thought about each routine action as it was performed, the process of dressing would take  one at least twice as long and the final result might be less satisfactory.  The chains of bad habits, most people will agree, must be broken.  This only requires will power. The word only is invariably' inserted  in that sentence by those who have been successful in giving up smoking or drinking or staying up too late. Those who are still in "the  chains may well believe that the word makes the sentence a deplorable understatement.  There is one aid to acquirement of the necessary will power. If  one analyses the habit one wishes to break it will usually be found  associated with a good or innocent habit; if the first cigarette of tho  day is associated with the breakfast cup of coffee, one can omit the  coffee and the craving for the cigarette will vanish. The habit of  watching those old westerns may be conquered by immersion in a  good book.  Altering good or indifferent habits may return unexpected rewards. If one is accustomed to going to lunch at one o'clock, for example, one will meet the same persons at the restaurant every day  Alter the time to half an hour earlier or later and one will see a whole  new set of friends or acquaintances whose lives are bound by a different chain.  By A. J. C.  The passing of one phase in  the early days of settlement  along the coast was not regretted by those who took an active  part in it; that it was part of  the problem of transport ��� the  central problem ��� could be expected.  At the time referred to Gibsons passengers and freight  could be landed directly from  chip to shore, and it was the  same at Sechelt, by means of  the little steamboat -owned by  the trading firm.  These also served the needs  of those who lived within reasonable distance of the two potoits,  but the thinly scattered settlers  along the coast between were  dependent on those two boats of  the early Union Co. Comox and  Cassiar and on boatmen willing  to go far out to meet them on  the Strait to make the transfer.  *  *  *  Both were small, Comox had  somewhat the look of a boat but  Cassiar had neither the look nor  the behavior of a good seaboat,  and neither would be permitted  to carry passengers today.  More-over they were busy carrying hay and oats for the logging  horses and loggers to and from  the camps and Vancouver and  did not seem to value the little  business of a few settlers ��� they  made us go far offshore to meet  them and sometimes gave us the'  go-by. Where there was a float,  even for the summer months  only, it was a great help but in  other places it meant car-power.  Harry Chaster took care of it  at Gower Point: at tre creek L.  H. (Harry) Roberts carried people and freight from float to  shore, and shore to float, and  George Walker was boatman at  Wilson Creek. When my time  came I kept my boat housed  near the shore end of the Flume  Road, when the long-forgotten  flume was still in use. We met  the boats and we were wet very  often, which maybe why we  have stiffened up somewhat in  the  long  years   since.  **.-���*  When freight only was expected  and  the  seas  were  coming  in high on the beach we would  wait until the return trip of the  boat in the hope of better wea-~  ther     but     before Doctor Fred^  came in to "take care of us there  were occasions when someone���  a rare accident case or a woman  due  at  a  maternity  ward  had to be put aboard the boat  for town whatever the weather,  and    one    still remembers his j  great relief when he was able ',  to shove clear of old Cassiar or j  Comox     with     his     passengers ;  safely aboard after a strenuous '  and    somewhat   risky    passage  through     the     breakers  on the  beach and a heavy pull offshore.  It  was  part  of life along  here  at the time and a measure of  true progress can be found by  comparing    with    our    facilities  for taking  care of such important    cases   today.

Holiday travel also called  sometimes for work-' in rough  water and it is'-those times that  one remembers for in calm weather meeting the boat was no  more than a chance to get in an  hour's fishing. Also it could be  strenuous without being too  serious ��� it could even be  hilarious.  ���  *      *      *'-.���  On a date in late December  1911 I took a neighbor out to  the down-boat in fine weather.  He had a family of eager youngsters and their mother had" provided him with a shopping list.  He extracted,, a promise from me  that blow high or blow low I  would be out to. take him ashore  upon his return, which would be  on that day of enduring magic  the 24th.  Naturally it blew high, and  higher. A stormy wind blowing  up the coast had begun the previous evening, increased to full  gale force and lashed the woods  all night. I descended from my  upland home crawling under and  over windfalls and the first look  seaward was as grim as I ever  knew it to be ��� one tumult of  grey seas p.nd windblown spray  as far as the eye could see.  But I had a good boat, a 16-  fcot double-ender of the true  whaleboat pattern, dependable  always, as handy under sail as  under oars and riding the oily  waters like a seabird. To give  credit where it is due to one  who is long gone my boat was  built by Andy Linton, rated the  best builder iri Vancouver in his  time, who did not need to put  his name on his work ��� anyone  who knew a good job could recognize it at a glance.  So out I went to see what I  could make of it, being of the  age when one responds to a  challenge. With no lady passen-  ger in a precarious condition to  worry over I hit the breakers  going at top speed and smashed  a way through. Out beyond it  was no boat race but I worked  a passage out until I was in the  path of Cassiar as she came  wallowing .along with wind and  sea astern; her master was having trouble keeping her on a  straight course.  ; She was so unwieldy that she  would yaw from side to side  with all that force of wind and  water pushing her from behind..  There would be no stopping to  put off a passenger or even  slowing down, I would have to  pick him off on the fly or not  at all. As I stroked alongside  a rope was thrown andt I took  a turn around the bow thwart  but kept the end in hand ready  to slip out of danger, and between holding on as I was towed and fending off I was only  dimly aware that my neighbor  had flopped aboard with all his  shopping and in some strange  way seemed to be doing it  again! But I was too busy to  investigate this phenomenon  and when someone shouted  "Thats all" I was glad to push  off, jump to the oars and get  my boat under control.  There were five men aboard,  all clutching their holiday shopping and I soon learnt why ���  I had been the only boatman to  come out that day. Four of them  had long walks but they were  too relieved at the-prospect of  getting ashore anywhere to  worry over that. There was no  landing them where I had got  off; the tide had risen abnormally high and the surf ..was assaulting the very roofs "of the  forest all along the shore.  So I ran them: up to Moscrop  Bay which offers a leeward  shelter from an upcoast storm;  and J got them ashore dry out-,  wardly at least, for, since truth  will out some of that shopping  was in bottles and the corks  had worked loose under stress  of weather. So we all had one.  They made their parcels into .  packs and marched away up  Lenahan's main skidroad singing happily. I made my boat  secure where she was until the  weather should get over its tantrums ��� and sure enough having  failed  to   stop  us  the  gale  subsided,     was     followed by a  silent night and a bright,/ calm  morning en the great day following.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  Now that the scope of the pro-  nosed Canada Pension Plan has  been modified in consultation  with the provinces there is no  reason why the federal government should be hampered by  'Quebec in proceeding with this  measure.  The prime minister recently  made it clear in the house of  commons that the plan, in its  initial stages, will not cover  survivors and disabled persons.  Hence there is no need for a  constitutional amendment at the  outset. Mr. Pearson also confirmed that Quebec is suggesting  a contribution rate of 4% instead  of the 2% suggested by Ottawa.  Canada need not go for the  more expensive scheme in order  to  placate  Mr.  Lesage.  doomed to failure. Cn the other  hand Ottawa will have to limit  its coverage in the short run.  Eventually, and if all the provinces agree, the coverage of  the Canada Pension Plan can be  extended.  Prime Minister Pearson's remarks were in response to.reports that Quebec was prepared  to use the constitutional argument as a jneans of getting its  own way in respect to the size  of contributions. Quebec, as it  happens, wants to go ahead with  a funded pension plan���the savings from which it could use to  invest in new industrial enterprises. The simpler pay as you  go federal scheme, meanwhile,  does not accumulate savings. It  is therefore much cheaper in  the short run ��� hence Quebec's  embarrassment with regards to  the size of contributions involved.  When the federal pension  scheme was first discussed,  widows with dependent children,  orphans and disabled persons  were to be covered under its  benefits. But because this provision requires provincial approval the federal government  decided to deal only with a basic  pension program at the outset.  Prime Minister Pearson has,  however, expressed the hope  that the Canada Pension Plan  will eventually be extended to  cover these other categories.  One question at least has been  answered in respect to Soviet  agriculture. It has been a failure and long term measures  will be required in order to  bring the output into line with  the mounting needs of the USSR.  At the last major meeting of  the central committee on. agriculture in 1961 the Soviet authorities 7 decided to try more  bureaucrats as a substitute for  more fertilizer. Now, however,  this decision has been reversed.  The need for more fertilizer is  being stressed in no uncertain  terms.  Expansion in other basic industries, including steel and the  production of industrial machinery is being - cut- back. No less  than $50 billion is to be invested, over the next few years, in  the production of fertilizers,  pesticides and the production of  the transportation equipment  needed to move these materials  to the farming areas.  forecast with any confidence.  Western authorities, meanwhile, are pondering exactly  what Premier Kruschev meant  at a recent meeting when he  said that efforts to bolster Soviet  agriculture would be accompanied by some reduction in  manpower allocated to the  Armed Forces. No doubt this  augers, well for peace. But to  many Canadians, and especially  those who are familiar with improved agricultural methods,  such action does not appear to  go to the root of the matter  insofar as increased production  is concerned.  Coast News, Jan. 16, 1964.        3  long will depend, not only on  Russia's reserves of gold and  other precious metals, but how  long it will take the Soviet  authorities to realize that the  real answer lies in letting their  farmers, have a much greater  say in running their own affairs.  HUGE  INCREASE  From 1946 to 1962 tax revenues  of all governments in Canada  increased from $2.9 billion to  $10.1 billion, or from $243 to $546  per capita.  This being the -case it would  appear that Russia will be a  major importer cf foodstuffs for  some years to come. It means  that the port of Vancouver will  be busy handling wheat and  flour. Crbp conditions have been  poor in the-USSR but they are  not altogether to blame for the  shortages which are now assum-  ing chronic proportions.  As exporters we will welcome  this trade.

Presentation  to McMahan  On the evening of Jan:' 9, Howe  Sound Pulp Division staff members, together with the president  and past presidents of Local Union 297, gathered at dinner in  Seaside Hotel to honor Mr. William McMahan, vice-president,  pulp production, Canadian Forest  Products Ltd., who is relinquishing active participation in this  phase of CFP operations.  Mr. C. B. Davies, resident manager. Howe Sdund Pulp Division,  presented Mr. McMahan with a  bound Vu>lu..ie of photographs de-  _picti;:g the progress of the Port  Mellon operation from 1951  through 1963, commemorating  Mr. McMahan's long and close  association with Howe Sound  Pulp Division.  In his remarks Mr. McMahan  pointed out that the history of  Canadian Forest Products. Ltd.  was one of constant development  in the Howe Sound Pulp Division  and that this-would continue, as  already plans had been complet-  ��� ed and instructions issued to proceed with a further expansion  ^early in 1964. Mr. McMahan further explained that as a first  step towards this expansion  would be the purchase of a new  large size recovery boiler which  would allow this section of the  mill to continue to operate with  a high safety factor in view of  the anicipated increased production.  Mr. McMahan joined Canadian  Forest Products Ltd. over 20  years ago, and since the purchase of the Sorg Pulp Company  interests by Canadian Forest .  Products Ltd. in 1951 has been  actively engaged in programs of  reconstruction, modernization and'  expanding pulp production, where  at the end of 1963, the mill had  reached a daily average production of nearly 400 tons and employed 481 persons.  Mr. McMahan will continue as  ���a director of Canadian Forest  Products Ltd. and associated  companies.  C I'M cArES'fKATVKES.

When they do, it is found, with  the Sechelts at least, to be un-  acculturated with the mythologies of later arrivals. There is  no well-known Sechelt story that  deals with early contact between  Indians and Europeans; no  European words were grafted into the Sechelt language.  Even such a simple word as  pot was ignored, and a native  term, HUNK-LAH'-LAH, devised  to designate the , common iron  trade article. Contact with European traders and introduction to  Christianity have not merged into the story-teller's traditional  itinerary, but have taken their  places as separate facets in the  people's way of life.     >  According to Sechelt mythology, tribal ancestors saved themselves from destruction during  the Flood by mooring their canoes to a huge log jammed into  the top of KULSE; or, Anchor  Mountain; Mount Victoria, at  the head of Jervis Inlet. When  questioned further about this  most improbable tale, the teller  explained that this story is merely the. popular version of the  event. Actually, he said, his people lived during the Flood epoch  in a cave some distance up the  slopes of MIN'ATCH, the mountain immediately north of  KLUSE, and almost completely  obstructed from view from the  inlet by the dominating Anchor  Mountain.  The term anchor is thus seen  to be -, an embellishment to a  story which remains quite complete without its addition. Thus,  we may piece it out: The Sechelt people, to preserve themselves from the post-glacial  flood, POT'-AH-MOHSS, sought  refuge in a STAH'-PAHSS; cave;  on the slopes of a mountain  which they designated MIN'ATCH. Yet,���- some time rafter, the  people contrived the. apparently  superfluous story of the anchor  which, in any case, turns out  not to be an anchor: at all, but  a log, to which the people had  supposedly moored their canoes,  at an altitude of 7,500 feet above  present sea-leveL  Now, the inference could be  drawn that this mythical log  was simply substituted in this  one instance for the well-known  anchor. But native Indians have  literally never anchored their canoes. Light anchors were sometimes used to hold fishing lines  in place; canoes were invariably  beached. Thus the term anchor  is not even a logical substitute.  The only alternative, discounting  sheer nonsense, must be sought  within the realm of symbolism.  Here, a most venerable answer  appears. From time immemorial,  the ship and its anchor have  symbolized preservation. The  ancient Egyptian solar ship was  designed to carry the human  soul into eternity. As the ship  symbolized preservation of the  soul after death of the body here  on earth, so the anchor; a version of the cross, the primordial  tree of life, symbolized preservation of life itself.  The mountain, far back in humanity's past, symbolized both  a source of awesome power"and  a place of refuge. Ancient peoples quailed at the voice of the  deity ensconsed on one peak, yet  sought from another actual or  symbolic solace from perils being encountered.  The    term    Anchor    Mountain  can   thus   be interpreted  as  a  synthesis of two symbolic terms,  ;each of which represents preservation of human life.  The search must be continued  even further, if we are to discover why Mount Victoria was  selected as the particular mountain, out of-the area's hundreds  of significant peaks, to be designated as their anchor mountain.  Again, an answer can be  found in symbolic reference.  Whether or not ancient Egyptians took the shape for their  kings' sepulchres from the tiny  edifices built by the Red Sea's  pyramid crabs, the fact remains  that they, and later peoples, in  Central America, adopted the  pyramid for structures significant to life and death. As will  be seen later in this story, the  pyramid shape, in stone, symbolized, to the Sechelts, the human beings, singly or collectively.  At least two myths testify to  this allusion. Now, Mount Victoria, while it is not pyramid-  shaped, its .*" beautifully-tapered  cone more closely resembles  that figure than does any neighboring peak. It is, also, closest  to MIN'-ATCH, the cave mountain. SLIAM-KAY'-AM; Mount  Wellington, . whose thunder and  lightning struck fear into ��� the  hearts of those lonely people,  faced HUN'-AH-CHIN village just  : a" "few "miles" ^sjoiftn" ~Tc��u"$E, at  their backsV lifted .its peak of  tranquility and ��� preservation. ;  From Harrison Lake, through  Squamish, Sechelt, Alert' Bay,  and on up the coast and even  into the interior of the province,  the Flood story, with its Anchor  Mountain, varies hardly at all.  The Kwahkelth name, KUL'-  SAM, employed by the people of  Alert Bay, is in fact almost  identical to the Sechelt term.  The Sechelt name for Flood is  POT'-AH-MOHSS, a term that  can also be used to describe  ��� water running over the edge ,of  a vessel. The phenomenon being  described obviously involves water running (the word potamus  is Greek for river), not. of water  falling from the skies. Only one  natural torrent of water of such  proportions as to beget stories  of 'entire tribes seeking refuge  from it up mountain-sides is  common to northern latitudes;  namely,  the Ice-Age  run-off.  Editor:. Two or three days before New Year's Eve, it came to  . my attention that in all;the dances and: dinners for New Yea/ s  Eve, there was not a single o;ie  for teenagers.  There must be about 150 to 200  young men and women between  the ages of 15 and 20 in the area  yet nothing was done for them.  I call them young men and women because they are no longer  children. Then people talk about  the young punks running around  in cars all the time. What else  are they supposed to do? There  certainly isn't much for them to  do nor any place for them to go.  It was my thought that perhaps something could be done  about this situation. For instance  if they had something like a  gymnasium,or recreation hall or  something on that line it would  help keep them from becoming  young punks. It would certainly  be a project to work on, and I  for one would, give it my full  support.  I sincerely hope that this letter   will   start   people   at   least  thinking about the problem.  V.

I used to be able to sit in my  garden and enjoy the surge of  the sea and the song of the  birds; now,' indoors, behind  closed doors and windows and  with ears plugged, I am driven  to distraction by the incessant  whining,, yapping, barking and  howling of the pooch population.  I used to enjoy a peaceful  stroll down the road to visit with  my neighbors, now it is necessary to arm oneself with a stout  stick before venturing out.  I used to gain great pleasure  and instruction by the taming  of wild animals, such as racoons,  which knew my voice and would  come to take food from my  hand. Now my coons are killed  or driven ;away by the dogs.  I am by no. means an indiscriminate, dog-hater; I gladly  concede the usefulness of a well  trained   watch   dog  or  hunting  dog. But   a  trained watch-dog  stays on the premises that he  is supposed to watch arid barks  only at trespassers; he does not  rush hundreds of yards up arid  down the road chasing and  harassing innocent''' passers-by.  A properly trained hunting dog  tracks .or retrieves game only  on the word of command; he  does not rampage over a whole  district killing and maiming indiscriminately.  If I,' or any other human resident of the area, were to create  one tenth of the noise that these  dogs create all around the clock,  I would quite rightly be prosecuted for disturbing the peace.  If I harried passing pedestrians  as do these dogs I would soon  find myself charged with criminal attack.  I' suggest to the owners of  these dogs; train them to be  quiet and peaceable. If, you can  not do that, and after all a dog  only reflects the intelligence of  his master, get rid of the brutes  before they depreciate the value  of property in the whole neighborhood. Already we have too  many "For Sale" signs on houses and property along our road!  D.

Christmas corsages, which  were made by Mrs. R. Macdon-  ald, netted the auxiliary $82,97.  This group is fortunate in having  such a willing worker. Thanks go  also to Mrs. J. Wyngaert, Mrs.  Macdonald and ladies who donated aprons. These sold very' well  with a financial gain of ��15.10.  Since June, the Gift Box items  have brought iri $71.36. Ladies  not belonging to the auxiliary  knit and sew baby sets, diapers,  nighties, jackets and many other  items to put in the Gift Box.  Thanks go to these women as  well as members for their endeavours.  The linen cupboards at St.  Mary's Hospital are well stocked with baby wear, children's pyjamas, .operating sheets and  gowns, towels, etc. and six men's  robes are soon to be added.  These items and others have kept  Mrs. Wyngaert's sewing commit-  Doors will open at 7 p.m. and  dancing will comriience at 9 p.m.  Tickets at $3 each will be in the  hands of auxiliary members soon.  A committee  headed  by  Mrs.  Coach clinic  at Sechelt  The first track and field coach,  es clinic for 1964 will be held in  Sechelt's Legion Hall, Mon., Jan.  20 at 8 p.mi following a Junior  Olympic Training Plan workout.  The clinic will be held under auspices of the Royal Canadian Legion in conjunction with its Junior Olympic  Training Plan.  According to the plan coaches  who have taken the intensified  courses at provincial and national levels under the world famous coach, Dr. Geoffrey Dyson,  are to pass the information gain,  ed to other interested adults  within their areas. By this method it is hoped other coaches may  be developed, .parents may become acquainted with the type  of training their, children, are receiving, and those interested in.  youth movements : may " be able  to use the knowledge in other  fields. *...-.���;    ,,,/���,'  Present plans call for one clin^  ic> a month. At the January clinic, John O. Little, head coach  for Sechelt������' Legion Branch 140  will speak on the history of J.O.  T.P., and track and field in relation to other forms of athletics. For actual track and field  events he has chosen to lecture  on the high jump and middle  distance running.  The clinics are free and open  to all .adults who are interested  in athletics in any form.  CONGREGATIONAL MEETING  The . annual congregational  meeting of Gibsons United  church will take place on Fri.,  Jan. 31 starting with a potluck  supper at 6 p.m. in the Christian  Education hall.  In these days of mechanization  and pre-fabricated houses,  houses spring up almost overnight where a few days previously only green timbers, reached up to the sky. But this past  week, two halfmoon Bay families did literally get their new  homes overnight. Two magnificent mobile homes simply rolled  into Halfmoon Bay to house the  .Dennis Gamble and Dick Derby  families. Dennis' 47 ft. house  trailer which is installed by the  Shell Service Station, is already  home to Mrs. Becky Gamble,  Loretta and Dennis Junior. The  new Derby home is a- spacious  50 ft. Sierra house trailer, temporarily parked on the Redrooffs  road.  A crew of four men is busy  on Merry Island demolishing  the old boathouse and building  a new one. The fires which have  been seen lighting the evening  skies recently can be attributed  to the activities of this crew  .Meantime, Mrs. Elsie Jubian has  left the island for a two week  visit to Vancouver.  Ron Robinson spent the weekend in Vancouver visiting Bev  and his baby son, Kenneth Ward,  who are still confined to St.  Paul's Hospital, but hope to be  home soon.  Mrs. Lena Scott, who made  her home in Redrooffs for many  years    is    in   Burnaby   General  Hospital for observation.  The Roy Doyles are at their  Halfmoon Bay home this weekend.  Mrs. Richard Shaich is visiting  friends in North Vancouver.  There will be no January!  meeting of the Lovers of Life;  League.  Replace land can  When the auxiliary to Roberts  Creek Legion held its last meeting on Jan. 6, tributes were paid'  to Jack Cathels, Mrs. Garlick,-  Mr. C. Shupe, George Paton,  and special tribute to Mrs.  Dorothy Manns, past president. >  When Mrs. Manns was president she started a project called  The Helping Hand Box. An'  ordinary tin can has always,  been used. Mrs. Monrufet kind-!  ly donated a chest bank, on'  which, shall be placed a plaque'  in honor of Mrs. Manns, and itj  shall always/be looked after by'  the auxiliary.  It has been the custom of the  auxiliary to send a layette to the  Queen Charlotte Hospital hi,  London, Eng. The president asked . to have that discontinued,  and the money spent go to the  local hospital. The ladies agreed  to the suggestion. The next  whist will be Jan. 24. Date for  the spring bazaar is April 3.  Help from Legion  At the monthly meeting of Sechelt Branch 140, Royal Canadian Legion in, the Legion Hall at  Sechelt, Friday evening, Jan.  10, Edward Surtees, branch president announced that the organization contributed heavily to  community services during the  past year.  Among the organizations the  branch has assisted are the Boy  Scouts, Junior soccer and the  Junior Olympic Training Plan.  They also see that their own  members who suffer misfortune  are looked after. Mr. Surtees  stated that the branch, has every intention of carrying on this  work during 1964.  The meeting decided to have a  social evening for members and  one guest on Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. in  the Legion Hall;  On Jan. 31 the monthly youth  dance for teenagers will be held.  Proceeds from these dances go  toward supporting the youth activities sponsored by the branch.  Witnesses meet  John Risbey, presiding minister of Jehovah's Witnesses, reports that entire. families from  this area will travel to West  -Vancouver the weekend of Jan.  17 to 19. The occasion is one of  a series of four 3-day conventions in Vancouver which will  draw a combined total of 5,000  persons of all ages. -  The feature lecture, The Bible  Triumphs in a Scientific World,  will be delivered by D.. M. Mills,  special representative from Toronto.  Children as well as adults will  listen to talks on Bible themes;  see acted demonstrations of applying Bible principles in everyday living; and hear experiences  encountered in the Christian  ministry. Such practical information shows how no other textbook so adequately,supplies our-  spiritual need for today, much  less provides a hope for tomorrow, Mr. Risbey said.  Participating in the program  will be local schoolteacher, John  Segec.  D. Sleep has plans underway for  the.���������annual spring .fashion",'��� show  Theyidafe' for this, event will. be  tee .busy ... and their! efforts .will  soon be turning to, the "new hospital as it progresses.  Of interest to all is the auxiliary's Valentine - smorgasbord-  dance, Feb. 15 in the School hall,  announced, later. "  The' next meeting of the auxiliary will be on��� Thurs., Feb. 12  and the executive will meet Feb.  6 at the home of Mrs. R. Emerson.  installed  Officers of Sunshine Rebekah  Lodge 82 were installed at a very  impressive ceremony /conducted  by Mrs. E.

Guides  thank all those who 'generously  supported their Christmas' sale, ���  when 52 table centres arid 40  wreaths were sold. The Guides,  were interested t0 find that their'  handiwork had gone as far afield  as Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto, California and Texas, England and New Zealand. This project had .occupied their handi-  craft time from October and the  net  profit  amounted  to  $103.07.  Some think $100 is a lot of  money, it is and the Guides are  grateful for it. Divided, among  25 girls it doesn't go very far.  Living as they do.so near and  yet so far from Vancouver the  Guide company has many ideas  for excursions to places of inter,  est, but the cost of transportation, over $70 for fares alone, is  often prohibitive. Unlike the  Scouts, the Guides do not benefit from a Service Club sponsor.  NATURE CONTROLS  Nature is never wholly in  balance, and all forms of life  possess the innate power to  multiply far beyond their normal death rate unless controlled  by some system of checks and  balances. It is when such checks  are no longer operative, as when  men drive predatory birds from  the countryside and the rodent  and insect populations suddenly  expand with almost explosive.  vigor, that we begin to realize  the dangers attendant upon the  advance of civilization and the  need for intelligent conservation  of all life forms. ''_���  In Canada over the past 30  years life . expectancy at birth  for males has risen from 60 to  67.6 years, for females from 62  to 73 years.

Clarke Simpkins Invites You  to test drive the Versatile  4-Wheel Drive  Pat Welsh who was the Coast  News correspondent for Halfmoon Bay area, whip left for  England some while ago, has  sent along the following letter  from 60 Stanborough Rd., Plym-  stock, Devon, England:  Southampton is being made  into a' modern city after suffering severe bomb damage during  the last war. The historic gate  is being restored and the ruined  churches  left  as  memorials.  A  bobby  on  a  street  corner  consented    to   have  his. picture  taken and what a, polite lot they  are.  It is  simply amazing how  polite everyone is. The, bus conductor   when  you   get  off   calls  you  Love   or  My  Dear.   I  just  have to howl when they take my  arm and help me. off.  *      *      *  Spent a  week in London  and  renewed   my   acquaintance   with  the  Tower  of  London,   Billingsgate,   Petticoat  Lane,   Westminster   Abby,    St.   Paul's   and  of  course     Picadilly.     Not     much  change in the -west end but considerable in the east end. Cheap-  side and some of the old spots  in  that  area  have  disappeared.  The Bank of England is still in  the same old place and I spent  a  few  hours  hunting   out  some  of the old lanes. Some are still  there but quite a few are missing.    There   were  hundreds  of  pigeons    at    Trafalgar    Square  waiting to be fed and are quite  tame.  * * ��� *  Registered at Canada House,  as all good Canadians do -but  did not see a soul I knew. Took  a bus down to Chelsea where I  lived for some time and saw the  house I lived in and it was the  same even to the aspidistra in  the window. I chuckled as I  walked over to Battersea  Bridge, thinking of my gay  young days when I used to wander with my various boy friends  to feed the animals in the park  zoo. It is an amusement park  now.  Strolled along the embankment  also Gheyne Walk and admired'  the beautiful old houses. The  Thames is as muddy as ever  with several houseboats moored  along the shore occupied by  girls,  looking most attractive.  Saw My Fair Lady on_ its closing night and it is something to  remember. Also saw Oliver arid  the Black and White Minstrels  ��� quite a show.  sjt     *     *  Drove out to Roehampton and  Richmond then walked through  Kew Gardens along the tow path  to Putney, remembering the days  when we used to go there to  cheer Oxford on boat race day.  Riding on the top of a, bus one  has a wonderful view of the  city. There are quite a lot of  alterations at Hyde Park corner.  Next we rowed a boat on the  Serpentine fed the ducks then  viewed Peter Pan in Kensington  Park. -  Went through Harmsworth  House and saw papers being  printed and thought of the day  when you showed me the Coast  News plant. Instead of a couple  of linotypes they have dozens all  clattering as the matrices slide  down the slots.  My best wishes to you and to  my Mends too. You have a  wonderful paper. My sister can  hardly wait for me to fniish  reading it so she can read it.���  Pat Welsh.  THE VEHICLE THAT GOES. ANYWHERE, DOES ANYTHING  .

The choir has begun practicing  again as have the cheerleaders  who became the proud, possessors  of new sweaters recently. They  will have a chance to show them  off in coming games. The basketball teams are out practicing for  the big games at Powell River  this weekend.  The Monday morning assembly this week was put on by  div. 2. The Shooting of Dan Mc-  Grew took on a new look as the  cast went through the skit. It  was indeed a good performance.  The drama club is organizing  a play for a drama night as it  is unlikely that there will be a  drama festival this year. They  hope, however, to exchange performances  with other  schools.
