At Sechelt -,,  For' Sechelt's PTA meeting  last' Thursday 'in the Elementary  school, the main events were  the reports of thel district probation . officer, Mr.. Kennett on  probation and its "aim and' another by RCMP Cpl. Nelson, on  juvenile delinquency. The Teachers Federation also met in the  school on the same night.  Mr. Kennett' gave a brief history of probation since the probation act was written 21 years  ago. At present^ he said there  are 27 probation officers in B.C.  and the government is considering hiring more.  Probation he said is a court  sentence and a substitute for  prison. There are various reasons for its usefulness, the main  one being it allows offenders to  have normal association of family and community and counselling is more readily available.  Economically it is cheaper and  the social stigma is removed.  He emphasized probation is not  a cure all though it is immensely     helpful    in     rehabilitation.  Corporal, Nelson's talk tied in  very closely with that of Mr.  Kennett. On the prevention' of  Juvenile Delinquincy he said  the,most important things were  discipline and co-operation���discipline of young "children "to prevent a child feeling the world  ���was made for his benefit alone  and co-operation between v all  parents in ~ the raising of children. - * , ''  " On police,' duty ^in regard to  juvenile; delinquency he said  anybody, can put on a uniform  Commissioner  greets Guides  and Brownies  No newcomer to children,  counting as she does" all the  Guides and Brownies in B.C. as  her family, the tall lady with the  friendly ismile soon made herself  at home with both children and  adults.

Controversy continues  ���over school board budget presentation  ?On   the   motion   disapproving  ^School   board   budget   became  a~- matter   of   urgent   import   at  council meetings in Gibsons and  Sechelt last week.  At Sechelt a special meeting  wjas called on Wednesday to  give council's O.K. on the budget. The budget had been held  oyer at Councillor Bernel Gor-  ;dpn's request from the regular  cquncil meeting of the previous  -week so that School Trustee  Leo Johnson could be available '  cils shy away from such action:  Councils can table -the budget  registering no action but this  is taken by government authorities to mean approval.  In the case of Gibsons council the-vote oh approval of the  budget resulted in a tie with  the chairman casting liis vote  in approval of "the budget. Councillors Fladager and Drummond  were " opposed" and" Councillors  Feeney and McKay in favor.  Chairman Ritchey added his approval to break the tie.     ���  the manner in which the budget  was-presented the entire council voted jn favor and also, decided to write/a letter to the  minister of education objecting  in principle to the methods of  presenting :;it to councils. , ���  The Gibsons school trustee  Mrs. Peggy Volen was present  to answer-questions but council  was not too concerned about the  financial aspects "of the budget.  It dealt mainly with the method  involved in getting it before  council. ���  vincial commissioner, as their  friend.

Pennies collected for Thinking  Day go traditionally to this fund  which helps Guides attend international camps  Earlier Mrs. Holmes talked  with Guiders, parents and their  guests at a lunch in the Anglican  Parish hall.  En route for Sechelt a brief  ���stop was made at the Roberts  Creek Guide Club House where  Guides and Brownies were gathered to meet Mrs. Holmes. Erica  Ball, company leader, introduced  Mrs. Holmes and showed her  over the  club house.   rThe Guides presented their visitor with a planter made by the \&ave enough gumption to fight  senior- patrol b^ntainojng "their ,L #ie< present system of budget  contribution to the World Friend- " presentation to council with very  ship Fund, and the Brownies also' \ 4itUe time to absorb **��� The  made-' formal    presentation   .of   .sooner this happens the sooner  "   "    imp will get action, he added:  Wednesday night of last week  Mr. Gordon and Mr. Johnson  ajong with the' rest of council  sat around the council table-and  discussed in general what dollar-'  and-cent value the school board  proposed to get from its budget.  ,*At the conclusion of the examination Mr. Gordon moved  for approval of the budget after  stating that everything was.explained to his satisfaction.

Mr. Gaglardi's letter read in  part: "I.have asked my department to look into this matter  carefully and let% me have a full  report. We will do our best."  Tony Gargrave, M.L.A., also  wrote the club as follows: "I received your letter, a'few days ago  with its enclosed copy, of petitions which you have forwarded  * .   *     *  to Mr. Gaglardi concerning the  improvement of roads in the Roberts Creek area.  "Your letter arrived just in  time so that I was enabled to include your material in my remarks in my reply to the Speech  from the Throne.

When, later, the. com-,  mission reversed its decision,  on aesthetic grounds, the initial  proposal to. place it there was  referred to.as mine.  Next proposal, also not mine,  was to build a separate building  on the original site, near the  Gibson family graveyard. Without any reason being given, the.  commission has now decided  against this proposal, again  labelling it mine.  A figure contrived and set up  for the purpose of being knocked down is. known from ages  past as a straw man. I am ���becoming a trifle weary of acting'*  as the municipal council's straw  man. I shall now set to work;  preparing a display of relics  and early photographs in the  basement of my own home, and  invite the public to call when  the display is ready.  I am also disgusted at council's duplicity in its handling of  the historic church building;  pretendng to give- it as a museum simply to inveigle the bidding on it up from the original  $100 to a final deal at $500; a  deal which never ceased to brew  during all protestations of interest in a public museum.��� Lester  R.; Peterson.  plore the fact that. the sale of;  ;this building was not publicized.;-  Had this been done, I believe,:  from what people of the community have told me, the ?500 desired by the village commission  would have been raised by popular subscription, and the church  building saved for historic purposes.

"This bridge  is narrow with, blind approaches  and is a hazard to pedestrians."  said Gargrave.  ,;.���:  Gargrave also advocated the  construction of a road around  the , north side of the Howe  Sound. He said that a beginning  could be made by the P.G.E.  constructing a branch line'from  Squamish to Woodfibre,. to allow  that community,to ship out its  pulp products by rail. This would  provide a bridge across the  Squamish River for rail as well  as road traffic. '.,..   Black-topping for all of the,  Lower Roberts Creek road was  called for, and Gargrave advocated improvements to the Jo  Road, Beach Avenue, and the  Flume Road. He also urged- a  road be built from Earl Cove  to the Skookumchuck on Sechelt  ���Inlet. This is a valuable recreational area,, he added.,  The. Soames . Creek Bridge on  the Langdaie-Gibsons , highway,  has been the subject of .correspondence between Tony Gargrave, MLA, Hon. Philip Gaglardi, minister of highways and  Mr. W. H. Underwood, district  '-superintendent"of., highways, for  Mackenzie district.     '  In his letter to Mi*. Gaglardi,  Mr. Gargrave said:  "I have had many letters and  personal visits from constituents  concerning the small wooden  bridge just outside the Village  of Gibsons between Gibsons and  Langdale. The bridge is sometimes referred to as the Gran-  thams bridge. This bridge is ac  ross the route used by ferry traffic proceeding to and from Vancouver. It is designated as Highway 101. The bridge is picturesque, but now dangerous. The  approach as blind on one side  and there have been many accidents at this corner, the latest  occurring a few weeks ago  which cut off 'power in the area.  "The road at this point is particularly narrow and the retaining wall on the Gibsons side of  the road is crumbling away and  falling onto the roadway, narrowing the passage even further.  Another hazard that this bridge  represents is that because both  approaches are obscure, and one  approach is a. blind approach,  pedestrians who use the bridge  are placed .in, an impossible position when two automobiles approach the bridge at the same  time. There is just no place for  the pedestrian to go.

CHANCELLORS'   DANCE  At the Chancellors' Car club  Valentine dance Feb. 15 in Gibsons Legion hall the draw for  the king and queen' of hearts  saw Penny Feeney and Dave  Latham crowned. They received  prizes which were donated by  merchants. Spot dances were won  by Peggy Feeney, Eddie Davis,  Sharon Marsh and Garry Payne.  Mr. Payne from Vancouver  donated- his prize to the Children's ward of St. Mary's hospital. Vaughn Franske won the  door prize..  Editor: It is with real regret  that I read o* the sale of the original Gibson Memorial Church.  This building had been verbally  promised to Mr. Les Peterson for  the purpose of housing a museum  and how appropriate that use  would have been.  The main part of the building  was donated by my grandfather  and father, who pioneered this  area, and each window is a memorial window, dedicated and  donated by other early settlers.  Where better than in such a museum to preserve these tangible  llinks with our heritage?  It is good that the descendants  of George Gibson donated their  section of the land, on which  their cemetery is located, in such  a way that it cannot be capitalized upon.

If municipalities and school boards in British Columbia were to  treat the provincial government in the same way today's provincial  government treats them, there would toe one grand shake-up and the  ministers of municipal affairs and education would demand a thorough clean-up.  However under present conditions, with the government holding  all the high cards against both municipalities and school boards,  the only recourse for them is to let the government know how they  feel. This has been done year by year by municipalities without result. -(-���:'--.i--.r-::^^:r ��� -:  Municipalities are irked because of the position in which they  find themselves as regards school board; budgets. The School Act  demands that budgets be.placed before municipal councils toy Feb.  1 so they can have time to check them and then give it a municipal  blessing.  On paper this looks like a democratic idea being carried out to  the full. But what actually is the situation? The school board presents a set of figures, some of which are shareable with the provincial government but it cannot-teU-municipal councils how much.  School boards know what is shareable but until the department of  education sets its province-wide rate by formula, nobody knows what'  the mill rate can be: It means you vote approval of something you  cannot see.  It is not a matter of taking last year's provincial shareable figure and saying this year it will toe about the same. This school dis-  trict took quite a drop in shareable costs last year because assessment values had expanded to where We had become the seventh  wealthiest school district in the province.  School board budgets for the last two years have caused municipal councillors at both Sechelt and Gibsons to be much more vocal  about them than they have in the past. There are two reasons and  one is that councils get the blame for the size of the school tax and.  the other is that. councils have a negligible power of control over  this tax.  Municipal rates in Gibsons and Sechelt are close -to 10 mills while  the school rate is at about the 21 mill mark, double that of the villages' rates. Municipal councils strive to keep the mill rate down  and have been successful to date. The school rate has shown increases. Two years ago it was in the 18 mill bracket. Now it is in the 21  mill bracket. . -. ,  Municipal councils have to pay school board tax money which  they have not yet collected and in most cases are forced to go to  the bank for a loan. School boards are also forced to obtain bank  loans because the government is usually tardy in paying its share,  t&us adding to costs.  It is no wonder school boards and municipal councils are none  too happy over the situation as it exists today. Complaints are a  waste of time. When does the. breaking point come to the surface?  Constrasting contradictions  According to Lenin, the fatal contradiction of capitalism is supposed to lie in its inability to distribute and consume the fruits of its  inordinately high productive capacity.  Hisory, of course, has proved Lenin wrong. The communist faithful have waited for capitalism to destroy itself as prophesied, but  they have waited in vain. Whatever distribution and consumption  handicaps may have existed in Lenin's time faave long since been  overcome.  The same, however, cannot be said for the communist economic  system which Lenin designed. For if capitalism's weakness lies in the  inability to consume that which can be produced, communism's weakness lies in the inability to produce that which is needed for consumption.  As the Communist bloc food purchases from Canada bear witness, this is a problem that planners still haven't been able to beat  in almost a half century of trying.  �����a3ft���n  ...

But it is a kindly and under-  istanding  bear  with " a  devastatr .  ing    sense    of  humor,  and  our  guide has left his foot-prints on  the sands of time by providing  a    map    at the head of most  chapters so  that we  can follow  in his footsteps, and throughout  ,' his   book   has   favored  us. with  many  photographs   of  what  his  ghost towns lookef. like in their  hey-day   and   in   the   desolation  of     their     abandonment     from'  Boundary Falls to Atlin,  across  an area which makes from Dan.  to Beersheba a pale comparison.  Two oft!���-' "; -���-.    .;'-...? ,-;-.v?e  of  special  interest.   The   one   is  of Walhachin, now and in 1911.  On a  hot June evening in l"1!  I was a passenger on the C.P.R.  Imperial   Limited,   and  was   returning to Victoria after 7 years'  exile  in  Scotland.- On  the  tra:n  were a number of. young gentlemen    from     thr*    Old    Count-v  destined  fcr Walhachin,  and all  the embryo ranchers already in  j psiderce ther�� were at the *s'!:n.-  ticn to meet them, very formal  in  trnnis or. cricket. white.  The  meeting and greeting were "terrific" and made a moss-backed  British Columbian  wonder what  he had come home to. Now, as  Mr.     Ramsey     says,   the,  sage  brush   and s tumble   weed   have  long since returned to Walhachin.  The'Other is that of Laketon,  far off at the other end of the  province.

We got some miles down the '  lake when the Indian-crew told  my father that there ..was a white'  man calling Stop, so we stopped,  and, sure enough, up came a  white man' in a canoe with a  telegram to my father ��� from the  ^HBC appointing him Land Commissioner (equivalent -to Chief  Factor) at Winnipeg, and asking him to return.

Well,  I still see it across the sunshine  of over 50 years as surrounded  knee deep in flowers, and I had  there that day the usrv of the  newly-invented collapsible Bristol steel rod, and was sent down  river to the next eddy to catch  grayling for-oi'r supper.

He was an-old, old Chinaman miner,, going back to China  . to die, if he lasted that long. v  He just had on his jeans, knee  gum boots, and a bowler hat  - minus the rim, just the pot part  of it. His defensive weapon was  a two-foot long knife which  dangled like a tail from a waistband, and his rations for the  72-mile hike out were about two  . pounds of rice and a. few, ounces  of tea. All he could say was  "Halo Chickamun" (no money),  but he obviously had his gold  wrapped round his middle and  he had been told to attach himself to my father, and he did  just that.     - ../    '  The old lad made the walk  out at 36 miles a. day, but not  oh'those rations by a long chalk.  Once he reached the, H.B.C.  river steamer, his troubles were  over. .  My father might, be the No.  1 Bossy man, Hudson's Bay  Company, but John outranked  him as a Chinese Mason, so the  Chinese cooks on the H.B.C.  Port Simpson put out the red  carpet for him, and told me that  : John and his money would- arrive intact at his ancestral village in China. So, Mr. feamsey  gets in his yarn about his Lake-  ton Celestial and I get in my  yarn about mine,. and all four  of us survived. : ,',,,..

(NORAD) Region with head  quarters at Truax Field,  Wis.  The 30th NORAD Region contains men, weapons and' other  materiel of the Royal' Canadian  Air Force, U.S. Air Force, Army  and National G # 3rd, and it has  the responsibility for aerospace  defense in a number, of midwest  states and, large parts' of Ontario  andV Manitoba: '   ,  LAC Cooper is a weapons technician . on "duty in the - Combat  Centre of the 30th NORAD Region. This is the nerve center for  monitoring and directing the  aerospace defense program for  the mid-continent. He works at  a Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) display console and helps to keep the Re-  .gion Chief Controller informed  on the status of weapons in the  defense system.  Aerospace defense information  like the altitude, speed and headings of all aircraft flying in each  of the sectors of the 30th NORAD  Region flows in the form of radar intelligence from outlying  radar units to the sector direction centers. From these points,  the information is relayed to the  Region Combat Center.  At   the   direction   centers   and  the Combat Center, interservice,  international  staffs  monitor  the  . situation,   and   high-speed   computers compare flight plans with  - actual aircraft flights, making  it possible to pinpoint unknown  aircraft  in   the   system  quickly.  ��� If necessary, supersonic manned  fighter-interceptor   aircraft   can  - be  scrambled to  intercept   and  ��� identify the unknowns.  Throughout   the   year,   NOR-  . AD's   aerospace   defense   forces,  composed of men of the RCAF,  USAF,   Army,   Navy   and   Mar  ines, maintain a great skywatch  and weapons alert, thus insuring  protection    for    the     industrial  'heart of the continent.

"May I urge that the ^department of highways reconstruct  this bridge and corner at the earliest opportunity, to improve the  safety of the .area and create an  attractive entrance to the village  of Gibsons."  In his letter to ,Mi\ Underwood  the Mackenzie MLA said:  "I have recently written to the  minister of highways asking for  improvements to the Soames  Creek bridge. - The - suggestion  that I made to 'the minister was  for relocated and wider approaches to this bridge. As you  know, there is considerable pedestrian traffic across the bridge  It is also the main entrance to  the village of Gibsons.  "It is, of course, realized that  ferry traffic may be routed around this particular stretch of  road by <theN construction of new  highway facilities in this area.  However, it is quite obvious that  this road and bridge just outside  the village of Gibsons, between  Gibsons and Langdale will be in  continuous use by the people  who reside at Port'Mellon and  Gibsons, in their normal commercial arrangements and , travelling to and from the Port  Mellon  mill.   ��� ,��� ��� "���'....'  "The bridge' is frequently used  by pedestrians and the sudden  appearance of automobiles on  the bridge in connection- with  pedestrian traffic can "create a  . very, real hazard to the travelling pulblic. As you know,; there  have been quite a few accidents  at this spot in automobiles failing to negotiate the corner from  time to time. No doubt this is  caused bv automobiles travelling  at a rate of speed not suitable  for the highway, but it is lament-  edly true that this frequently occurs."  (By NANCY INGLIS)  The highlight of last week's activities was the <Yoyo contest.  The contestants knew the-, rules.  Each was to have two minutes in  which they were to display their  talent. Judging was done on the  basis of the number of Itricks.and  ability. There were two prizes,  one for the boy and one for the  girl winner. The contest response  proved to be quite small. There  were more bobbing Yoyos in the  onlookers than assembled on the  stage.  Mrs. Glassford and Mr. Peers,  the judges, had to ask for a tiebreaker (between Duane Thor-  'stenson and Ken Johnson. The'  final winner was Ken. For the  girls the prize went to Edna Nay-  lor. Edna proved, far and away,  (to toe the best girls contestant as  she was the only girl entered.

There are now 58 exchanges  or central offices which have  extended Area Service (free calling) with one or more adjacent  exchanges following approval  by subscribers or local governing bodies.  Among these exchanges are  Gibsons and Port Mellon which  had E.A.S.. instituted on Feb:  ruary 25, 1959, after the pro;  posal was approved by the ViK  lage Council of Gibsons and by  Canadian Forest Products  Limited for Port Mellon.  In recent years, plebiscites  have been approved by local  residents for E.A.S. between  Oliver and Osoyoos, for E.A.S.  among Fraser Valley communities, as well as in many other  areas. . ,  There are only four known  cases where the E.A.S. proposal  has been turned down by subscribers. In two" of the cases,  both on Vancouver Island, the  number of ballots returned was  extremely low and, believing  that insufficient information had  been given those concerned, the  plebiscites were submitted for  a second time soon after 'the  first. In both cases the second  plebiscites were approved.  The only other recent rejection involved a proposal for free  calling    between    Bowser    and  SHOP AT HOME  Keep local men employed!  Money spent on advertising  in the Coast News enables  'six families to make purchases in area stores. Why  send this money eleswhere?  Parksville. Although this was  supported by Bowser, the' larger  Parksville exchange > turned  down the proposal.' All areas  voting on an E.A.S. proposal  must approve it.  In   reference   to   the   Gibsons-  Sechelt  area,  telephone -'growth,  which is also indicative of population growth, has been apparent  for  some  years.  As  of May  1,  1959,  Port Mellon had 100 telephones;    Gibsons,   878;   and   Se-  cheltr  585.  At  January  1,   1964,  Port Mellon had 125 telephones;  Gibsons,  1370;   and Sechelt,-783.  In   the  White   Rock  area,   in  Noveihber,      I960,      subscribers  turned down a proposal for free  calling between White Rock and  our Woodland office serving the  Whalley area. The no-vote was  34 percent. Newton and Clover*  dale subscribers voted in favor  of the plan. It is this plan that  ,  the White Rock Sun 'had reference to in its  recent editorial.  At   the   time   of   the   plebiscite  the three areas ' concerned had  free  calling  among  themselves.  Proposals to provide free calling between certain'areas in the  Fraser    Valley    have    received  approval   from   telephone   subscribers who voted by mail.  In the five exchanges to which  the free calling proposals were  offered, an average of about 65%  of the ballots sent out were "returned. Aldergrove subscribers  returned 78% of their ballots,  while Mission showed the lowest  return���60%. Abbotsford, Lang-  ley and Cloverdale users all "returned about 60% of their ballots.  Aldergrove voted 92%  (506 to  39) in favor of the proposal to  allow free calling between Aldergrove and ' Abbotsford, and  Aldergrove and Langley.  * Langley voted 71% (1054 to  419) 'in favor of free calling to  Aldergrove and the Cloverdalex  central office area.  Mission voted 52% (537 to 501)  in favor of free calling with Abbotsford?*  Cloverdale central office area  was 61% (611 to 380) in favor  of free calling to Langley, while  Abbotsford voted 74% (1108 to  372 )in favor of free calling to  Mission and Aldergrove.  Only 3 ballots were spoiled in  Mission, while Cloverdale users  spoiled 12, Langley 13, Aldergrove 6 and Abbotsford 11, -  . .The company will now proceed,  with the necessary engineering  and the installation ^of the required trunk lines and equipment  to    provide    for   the   increased  load of calls anticipated when  the free calling plans go' into  effect.  Experience shows that the  number of calls increases about  three-fold as soon as the tolls  are removed.  GIBSONS        ,  III I llllll! \) III  .    CENTRE  R.

(Copyrighted) , -  Deep in the mythology of the  North-Pacific coast appear the  tricksters: These figures, whatever form they took, came ���on  the scene not long after the  world was created. While they  took no part in" creation, they  altered some features of the  world; * distorted things and  turned ��� them upside down. In  some localities, they were known  best as Transformers," who left  the world as human beings later  found it.' ���  ���  To the Sechelts,, these pranksters appeared as Mink; KYE'r  AHK; and Raven'; SKWEET-,  OOL'.<Whenever, paddling, along  a shore-line, a group of.paddlers  II.

Chris's Variety Store  Sechelt���Ph. 885-2151  came across unusual formation  ��� a twisted or tilted strata, a  hole which seemed to have been  formed by the native rock's  having been pulled open���someone would say, "Mink did that,"  or "That is the work of Raven."  Just below KOH'-KAH, the  narrows'of Narrows Arm, ^a fir  tree, extremely- bent in a series  of downwards and upwards  turns, grows .out from the rocky  shore about ten feet above sea-  level. Already there, says Basil  Joe, when he was young, this  tree is called KYE-AH-KAY-  WAHN'; it was Mink who twisted it so out of its normal shape.  Up' in LEG-O-'MAIN; Jervis  inlet; the granite' shore-line at  KAL-PAY'-LAIN; Patrick Point;  looks as if pebbles have been  embedded in it. ��� This ���, effect has  ' given rise to the' myth, SAY'-  AYTH-KAHM; "throwing a  stone." Long ago, so the story,  goes, boys'"used to throw stones  across the ' inlet, which was  quite narrow then,' from TEHL-  TEHL-WAHN'. Then SKWEET-  OOL', the Tricksters Raven, one-  day kicked the sides of the inlet apart as they are today.  The creek-mouth at Gower  Point is called KYE'-AHKS in  the Sechelt language, obviously through ' some reference to^  Mink, now lost to memory long  ago.  About three-quarters of a_ mile  /  above  the  narrows ��� in Narrows  .Arm, on the left side, a distinctive rock, six to eight feet high,  standing     clear.   of  the  steep  shore   like  a ��� .rough   statue,   is  ' identified by the Sechelt people  as   SKWEET-OOL';   Raven  herself.    Nearby,~ a  long,   pointed  rock lying up the bank is Raven's ' canoe',  and above  it,  still  another " rock   represents   Raven's boy-friend, waiting for her.  Again,   generalizations, .as   to  the  age  of  this  mythology,   or  ���the  kind  of people, who  would,  formulate it, cannot be pursued  with   any   great   certainty   that  the search is on the right track.  It is quite likely that the identi-  .   fication of certain emotions and'  certain   actions   with', particular  "! creature's   roves, far   back  into  antiquity^   The    serpent,, killer-  whale, beaver, condor, mink and  -raven are,-it-is known,-but the-  most  prominent   creatures  of a .  elt Nation  vast animism that saw' life, or  spirit force, in literally every  element of nature."  Here again is an aspect of  aboriginal life but meagerly  understood by peoples of .cultures farther removed from nature than was theirs. Sophisticated interpreters of animism generally think and speak of it as  a belief in which natural elements, as such, were credited  by primitive peoples with some  living or spiritual force of their,  own.  Basil Joe, on a voyage to' the  head of Jervis Inlet, pointed  out, at KWAIT-O'-SEE-AT, a  rock about six feet high, pointed  at the top and with three triangular sides, sitting on a rocky  beach at a distance of 10 or 12  feet from the face of a sheer  cliff. This rock, according to Sechelt belief, said Basil, is ��� moving slowly toward the cliff.  ,When it reaches it, that will be  the end^ of the world. On another voyage, again dedicated  to the recording of Sechelt lore,  this time into Narrows Arm,  Basil explained the myth of  WHAIL-TAY-MOHTZ'-AIN, , indicating, at its conclusion, the. man  left stranded in stone by the  gods, midway in his leap across  the bay. The shape of this stone  is precisely that of the "Eternity Rock" of KWAIT-O'-SEE-AT.  Now, as the boulder on the  ' beach in Narrows Arm is identified . as a man, so. that near  the head of Jervis Inlet must  also represent, not just a stone,  but a man also. It is not, an  inanimate object moving up the  beach, but a human being ���  perhaps all of humanity ��� shuffling slowly but inevitable towards eternity.  , So,   to , one   schooled   entirely  within the doctrines of- primitiv-.  ism, with no contradictory philo--  sophies   within   reach   to   shake  his     implicit     belief,  a granite  boulder does not. possess a moving force \ of its own. There is  not granite boulder, ,but. a man,  ���  this   man  will   possess   life  force,   just   as " will; any   other"  man.  The     native    Indian did not,  then,   attribute   cognition  to  an  inanimate   piece   of t rock.   Just  as the .-serpent and the  condor-  symbolized . forces-   within, .the..

"The problem of the so-called  blackmail practices in bidding  practices is difficult to legislate  against," said Gargrave. "The  committee has been advised by  R. G. McKee, deputy minister  of "forests, that .we- adopt the  wording of the Criminal Code  y defining extortion to prevent  ' disreputable people shaking  down legitimate logging operators, either large or small, when  bidding for scarce timber,"  Gargrave said. ����� "  * Mr. Gargrave said that what  happens is that people, who have  no legitimate interest in the  timber in question, ask for cash  payments to not bid against log  hungry loggers and artificially  force up the stumpage\, price.

No doubt names for geographical and natural features were  added to gradually, as the people ,. - became more and more  thoroughly acquainted with  their tremendous coastline. As  most phenomena named were  mountains, rocky points, creek-  mouths, islands, and beaches ���  quite permanent and unchanging  features ��� there is no way of  ascertaining how long ago they  were named. Sometimes, though  quite rarely, names were assigned to natural features that did  show change. One such is KYE-  AH-KAY-WAHN'; the tree that  grows out of the shore below  KOH'-KAH, distorted by Mink.  Basil Joe says that the tree was  "growing in its strange posture,  and named, as far back as he  can remember. Nevertheless,  since its butt is little more than  a foot in diameter, this tree can  hardly' have grown far enough  to   assume   its   fantastic   shape  Coast News, Feb. .20,  1964.       7  much before the turn of the  twentieth century. It would seem,  then, that place-names were being added to the Sechelt vocabulary until close contact with  White culture began to break up  the old way of life.  Through their mythology, and  on the basis of artifact discoveries, there does seem, then, to  be a body of evidence suggestive  of a theory that the Sechelt nation has live'd where'it now  lives since very far into the past.

By Goalie ^'  i  Due to adverse ground conditions, none of the- scheduled  league games were played last'  Sunday. These games, alo'ng  with all the other postponed  games will have to be picked up  in the very near future as the  league race is becoming very  tight indeed.   ���  As can be seen from the league  table some of these games are  going to have quite an effect on  the final league standings and  can actually' determine who will  finish first, second, third, fourth  and fifth in the final league plac-  ings. It is now up to the > commission and the coaches concerned to get these fixtures cleaned  up, even if it means games on  Saturdays and Sundays. Scheduled games for Sunday, Feb. 23  are:  Sechelt Legion' vs. Gibsons  United.  Sechelt Res. School vs. Roberts  Creek.  Sechelt Warriors vs. Port Mellon.  All games commence at 2 p.m.  LEAGUE STANDINGS  Creek   a\e   four   games   behind  schedule,1" while  the   United,  the  Res.'School and Port 'Mellon * all.f<  have^thrfce* cancelled  games  to<  pick up.^It is obvious .that' these<  outstanding games may_well decide   who   will   take1-- home   the  league trophy this season. ,,  On, Sunday,,Feb. 16?;in spite "ofk"  atrocious conditions, a blustery  wind and recurring squalls, the"  Merchants and the United were  featured in a friendly match.  Nothing at stake! No points to  be won or lost! Just a sort of  practice game.  Well,'! wish we had the good  >v  fortune to see more games like  this, because under v;ery .poor  '"conditions ' these* ''two' "f earns put  "on d. "display of how to tnaster  the , weather, and it was�� noted  that none of the spectators, left  before the final whistle bley. For  55, minutes of a fast,; hard fought  game, both attacks were! held'  scoreless, , and then thejUnited  left winger moved inside and taking a cross from the right wing  hammered the -ball low down,  just inside" the post for what prov  ed to be the'deciding goal.
