RECORD  Too often, because of the. action of a few, the entire present  generation ..of young...people is  condemned as . undisciplined,  thoughtless, inconsiderate. A  whole ' project~ conducted by or  for young people is. condemned  because of. the acts, of complete  outsiders ��� hooligans from another community entirely.   ,  Instant Criticism has;been with  us longer than instant coffee but,  unfortunately, is seldom founded  on research such as went into the  beverage: if a little research was  done, investigation made before  voicing criticism^ more: often  than not the - critic would' be a  much more useful person. He  would become a helper rather  than a nuisance.  Actually this editorial is  prompted by a front-page story  in another weekly newspaper,  the Coast News published at Gibsons, B.C. Probably you saw the  on-the-soot TV coverage given  the incident by CBC.  "Almost as quickly as' the News  was advised of the disaster it  received'a report "from an alert  citizen" of a rescue move under  way with students.at Elphinstone  Secondary" School taking- part.  The .News story includes these  paragraphs:  "There's a heart-warming side  to the past week's sinking of an  oil barge and resulting pollution  of the beaches and tragic toll*of  sea birds: the way -the, young  people' pitched in and worked to'  save, the stranded birds.. . l '  "The beaches have been patrolled regularly, sometimes after a  newspaper route was completed  and always with homework stall  to be done. Some of these youngsters, have been. out again before  school, carrying oiksoaked birds  before 8 a.m. These same boys  have been out again with. flashlights after dark. ..  "Regardless of how; big or ag-;  gressive the birds; were, and  loens and western grebes have  three to four inch beaks with  stilleto-'sharp points, the boys  have figured out ways of catch-  in them.  "By and large it has been a  heartbreaking task, far too often despite all the care,' the birds  succumb but the valiant efforts  of1 these fine young people deserve the highest praise."  We are quite sure that our  young people are of the same  type as' those in the Gibsons  area. They do not often have as  spectacular -an opportunity .as  described above to demonstrate  it - but-l they -.perf orm* 'many-* fine ���  services such as the group of Air  Cadets of Mission's 521 Squadron  who recently prepared 3500 pieces of mail in support of the Lions  club-sponsored Easter Seal Appeal on behalf of Crippled Children.'  /���'    The annual general ratepayers'";  meetings  in  the- four .zones'", of"  .

' "  The position of trustee in  Zone 4, however, had to be. declared vacant, as, only one ratepayer turned out for the meet-'  ing at Madeira Park. This was  very much of a surprise to the  trustees, who .-were prepared for  detailed discussions with' the  ratepayers of that zone in view:  of the forthcoming closure ..of the  old hospital at Garden Bay,  when the new hospital now under  construction near Sechelt, would  beT opened this fall.  It was'.considered by the trustees a last opportunity for the  ratepayers of Zone 4 to make  their views known and have  them conveyed to the authorities. Now instructions are await-  .ed from the comptroller of water-rights, how to provide representation for Zone 4, which for  the time being has been'lost by  default of the ratepayers to elect  a .trustee.  Dr. H. L. Keenleyside and Dr.  G. M. Shrum, co-chairmen of  ��,C. Hydro, announce the Authority's third annual reduction in  rates since the 1962 merger of  B.C. Electric, and B.C.

Last Wednesday night a letter  from the municipal department  was read. This .letter maintained  restrictive covenants had no  bearing on council's: efforts, to  zone or re-zone property.'  Couhcil^first dealt with a .request from Mrs. A. Richter. to  have two lots Von Inlet Ave. at the  corner7 of Mermaid St. rezoned  from residential .,to commercial.  At first Councillors Parker and  Gordon were not in favor of such  rezoning, presenting argument  that this was a thin end of a  wedge which would affect other  properties nearby. However when  it came.to voting on the motion  to rezone council was unanimous.  Councillor Dawe thought the  Richter property was a natural  for commercial zoning, and later  declared that the inconsistency  of zoning operations was giving  him a headache. The John Hayes  request for industrial zoning on  the waterfront was refused. "Other  commercial rezoning in the same  area was passed.  ��� Council was asked by the chairman, Mrs. Christine Johnston,- to  give consideration to two new  types of zoning and what, types  of operations should .be considered for. such properties. These  two new zonings would cover  : residential-commercial and marine-commercial. She asked- that  council think over the possibilities. A section of land on Porpoise Bay Rd. from the Osborne  'property inland to Block G, previously rezoned residential-commercial was returned to' its un-  zoned status when the motion for  the change was rescinded.  40 styles  fashioned  Last Friday, Sechelt Kinettes  annual spring fashion show featured clothes by the Toggery,  jewelry by Chris's Jewelers and  hair styles by Sechelt Beauty Salon. The daffodils, pussywillows  and heather which - decorated the  hall and stage in the mauve and  yellow of the Kinettes. were supplied by Eldred's Flower Shop.  Models were Mrs. Rachel Dixon, Mrs. Wilms' Stephanson, Mrs.  Diane Benner, Mrs. Helen Phillips'and Mrs. Anne Rennie. The  children's clothes were, modelled by Miss Tove Hansen, Miss  Karen Phillips, Miss Vicki Benner, Mass Corinne Dixon and Miss  Sandra Jorgenson.  About 40 styles were modelled  in everything from casual sportswear to the latest in evening  gowns for the summer. As usual  the children stole the show. Cor-  \ inne Dixon and Sandra Jorgensen charmed the audience with  their nylon dresses with white  tops and pink or turquoise skirts  The' show was well attended  with a smattering of men in a  good crowd of about 125; Tea and  cake were served during the in-  itermissaon. The show was put on  to help finance furnshingsi for one  of the wards in the new hospital.  5 A Spring Fashion show will be  presented���'.-Wednesday, April 15  ai 8 p.m; in Elphinstone Secondary school auditorium.

Effective  cost of electricity for home heating will be about one cent per  kilowatt hour.  Example: The average annual  bill for heating a 1300 square  foot home will, be reduced from  ���$200'to $157.  Owners of commercial premises such as motels, schools and  offices will enjoy up to 24 percent savings in space heating  bills. For them, the cost of electricity for heating will average  slightly above:one cent, but not  over 1% cents.  Example of saving to a; commercial heating customer: annu-  . al heating cost for a new motel  was recently calculated at $1,790."  Under the. new commercial heating rate this would be reduced to  $1,530, in this instance a saving  of about 15-percent.-' ������ ���  The   new   standard   residential  rates will provide savings rang-  . ing up. to 22 percent for low-use  customers. ���     '  The price charged per kilowatt  hour in the first step has been  drastically reduced throughout  the B.C. Hydro system since  March, 1982.  The largest decrease has been;  from 13 cents down to 2y2 'cents  in Foryt Nelson. In other outlying,  areas served by diesel power-  plants, the reduction has been  from 11 and nine cents down to  2% cents.  Even in the large metropolitan  centres of Vancouver and Victoria the five .'��� cents', formerly  charged has been ..cut in half to  %y2 cents per kilowatt hour.        .  Total annual benefit to B.C.  Hydro customers of the three  rate reductions introduced. since  ���March, 1982, is:, $13,200,000. Of.  this total, residential customers  save 88.300.000. annually.

A dance followed.  .'At 3 p.m.. on .the same' afternoon, 15 members came from  Powell River, chapter, seven who  were to be initiated along with  two from Mt. Elphinstone. John  Smith, senior councillor and his  officers did an excellent job in  the initiation ceremony.  A meeting to decide whether  there, should be a fall fair this  year agreed Thursday night of  last, week that it was possible.  The meeting in the Anglican  Parish Hall was attended by 14  persons. Letters had previously  been sent to six organizations  which a previous meeting  thought would be interested. Replies came in from two and  delegates from the Kiwanis Club  and Royal Canadian Legion attended.  -,  . The meeting heard Len Wray,  chairman of the new fair committee, say the committee means  to put on a fair but it will have  to,go out and sell the idea.  The meeting was informed the  committee would be in line for  *a 1964 fair grant of $150 according to correspondence with the  provincial government fall fair  department secretary, L. W.  Johnson.  ��� Chairman Len Wray suggested  a good way to arrange the fair  would be to get organizations to  take over one section of it and  SHOW FILM FRIDAY  God of Creation is the'. title, of  a natural color film with sound,  bringing a sermon from science  to be shown at the Pentecostal  Tabernacle F r iday evening  starting at 7:30 p.m. This film  will run close to three-quarters  of an hour and is one of a series  produced at the Moody Institute  of Science by Dr. Irwin A. Moon.  All, regardless of denomination,  are invited to see this picture.  be responsible for that section  only. One organization could  look after flower exhibits, another, vegetables and fruits with  another taking over baking exhibits. This way would not put  too much work on any one organization or the committee.  The meeting wound up with  the suggestion that those present  should.go back to their organizations and report back to the fair  committee at a meeting to be  held Thurs., April 16.

GRASS FIRE  About noon on Saturday of last  week a grass fire on the old Cemetery Road got out of control  resulting in an alarm being turned in. Gibsons area firemen responded and soon had the situation under control.  Some help needed  The annual Red Cross canvass  for funds in Gibsons area has  been underway for the past three  weeks and Mr: Henniker, campaign chairman, reports -favorable results to date.  The greatest difficulty has risen in finding canvassers for the  various regions and there are  still some parts of Gibsons not  covered due to a shortage of volunteer canvassers. If anyone is  willing and able to help in this  way it would be appreciated.  So many organizations are represented in Gibsons now, each  one conducting door to door appeals for funds that it is proving  more and more difficult to ser- ���  vice them all. Mr. Henniker, as  chairman of the Red Cross drive  would welcome assistance in the  Headlands-Franklin road area,  the Highway-Shopping Plaza district and a few smalltr sections.  Returns to date have been favorable, a total of $225 having  been turned in from two completed districts towards the target  of $787  BOTTLE DRIVE  Sechelt Scouts will have a bottle drive on Saturday, April 4, so  please have your bottles in cartons ready for the boys Coast News, AtfrU '2;^L?64:1   ��� ::  Tfte Thrill Thai Cornea Once in a J&fciune  A VE8SZSB CLASSIC  Science in the garden���perhaps  Fred Cruice, Editor and Publisher      Phone Gibsons 886-2622  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  P.O.

A recent application from outside Gibsons village for a tie-in  with the village water supply brought forth a determined no at a  recent meeting of the village council.  There is a reason for this. Council has been forewarned by  government municipal authorities not to place itself in the position  where they would be supplying water to people outside the municipal boundary.  Many people have the idea it is up to the village to seek the  extension of its boundaries of the village. This is not so. A municipal council is set lip to protect the ratepayers within its own confines. It can help people outside its boundaries but it is not mandatory that it do so. It is up to the people who live in that area that  want to get municipal services to petition their way into the village.  There is a considerable amount of thinking to be done even  when a petition is considered. Is the village water supply capable  of taking care of the area concerned? How about roads? Will it require laying out money for roads. What about the cost of fire hydrants with a sufficient water supply to service them? How about  ditching problems? .  It requires money to improve any municipal area and that  money comes from taxpayers' pockets. Naturally anyone becoming  a taxpaper.in a;^ newly attached area, expects to see/facilities laid  on as qMcklylas^)6^sibleftTms can hardlyrSe ^nefmihout^fiorxow-  ing until the hew taxpayers start paying into tax coffers.  So if people living in the greater. Gibsons area want village  facilities they had better get moving and become part of the village  as quickly as it can be done. Legal processes are not fast so early  speed would help.  A fresh start would help  Zoning problems haunt mundipal councils before and after they  have become municipal law. In Sechelt it is hot enough to have a  zoning problem by itself, an element known as restrictive covenants  is drawn in which might make the argument more interesting to  .some and more boring to others.  A personal restrictive covenant confining a parcel of land to be  used for residential purposes is of no concern to muneipal councils.  The restrictive covenant is a. personal matter which, the owner of  the land can pass on to the next buyer of his land, if the buyer requires a restrictive covenant. If he does not he does not register any  restrictions, thus leaving the property open for any type of building  municipal laws will allow on that piece of land.  In the case of the Sechelt argument- it concerns lots which have  restrictive covenants on them until 1969 which were apparently registered as between vendor, the Union Steamships company, and whoever mow owns the lots. The lots are on a side street off the main  thoroughfare and have commercial property opposite.  Municipal zoning is a matter which usually is not done in a  piecemeal fashion. Government officials who have the responsibility  of overseeing affairs at the municipal level urge municipalities to  .change their zoning bylaw according to the growth of the municipality, but not every year. The present series of re-zoning applications  as the first major operation since the zoning bylaw was made law  ���when the village was incorporated some seven years ago.  The Municipal Act for the province of British Columbia has no  meed to recognize restrictive. covenants because as was mentioned  toefore they are an agreement between vendor and purchaser only  which the municipality has no reason to recognize in its overall zoning plans. '  Commercial and residential-comsmercial areas have a habit of  expanding as a community grows. Residential areas expand away  from most commercial areas. Therefore where property becomes  /borderline as between residential and commercial, municipal councils have the right to take whatever action they deem fitting under  the circumstances. ,  In the present case before Sechelt's council, the owners of properties involved asked for rezoning to commercial. Then the restrictive covenant angle was injected, creating considerable discussion  and an inquiry into a municipal council's right to rezone such property. Under the circumstances it might be helpful to withdraw the  applications and start over- again.  23JA2  ' V,  /  OTUA  P r e'-p a red b y th e R e s Ai o ri h St off of.  " CI it OP ED IA   C AN A Dt AM A  Where is the Richelieu River?  The Richelieu is one of the  important tributaries of the St.  Lawrence .River and during the  early days provided a major  route for attacks by the English  and Indians on the colony of  New France. The river has its  source in Lake Champlain on  the Quebec-Vermont border and  north to empty into the St. Law.  it flows for some 80 miles due  rence at the city of Sorel. Ever  since 1609, when Champlain ascended the river to attack the  Iroquois, the river has played  a dramatic role in Canadian history. Governor Montmagny gave  it its name, in honor of Cardinal  Richelieu, when he built Fort  Richelieu at its mouth on the  site of present-day Sorel in 1642.  The fort was intended to halt the  raids of the Iroquois against the  new settlement of Ville Marie  (Montreal). -  Who laid America's first  successful underwater cable?  ���Frederick Newton Gisborne,  who in 1852, seven years after  coming to Canada from England,  linked Prince Edward Island  and New Brunswick by telegraph  cable. This outstanding engineer  and inventor, having conceived  the idea of establishing telegraphic communication with  Europe by way of Newfoundland*  then enlisted the co-operation of  the Newfoundland government  and the financial support of  Cyrus W. Field. This resulted in  the laying of the Cape Breton  to Newfoundland cable in 1856  and of the Atlantic cable in 1858.  A year after coming to Canada  in 1845, Gisborne had become  chief operator for the Montreal  Telegraph Company. The next  year he helped to found the British North American Telegraph!  He is regarded as a pioneer in  the development of telegraphy  in America. In 1879 he was appointed superintendent of "the  Canadian government telegraph  and signal service. Gisborne,  born in 1824 in Lancashire, died  in Ottawa in 1892. ^  What was  the  Tallahassee?  The ! Tallahassee was a Confederate cruiser that was, blockaded in Halifax harbor by Federal warships during the American Civil War (1861-65). It made  a thrilling escape by, navigating  at night the Eastern Passage7,  generally considered unnavigi-  able. The ship's captain, Johfl  Taylor Wood, came back to Halifax after the war and resided  there. ->  When was the DCRA founded??  The DCRA ��� the Dominion of  Canada Rifle Association ��� was  founded in 1868 for the purpose  of fostering rifle-shooting in the  militia and cadet services. There  are also provincial associations  in all the provinces. Every summer the Dominion association  holds a week of shooting matches  at the Connaught Ranges in Ottawa, where marksmen from ail  parts of Canada and from other  parts of the Commonwealth com-;  pete. Each year a team of 20  members is sent to take part  in the National Rifle Association  Empire Meet at Bisley, England.  The first Canadian team for  Bisley was organized in 1871 bjr  Lt.-Col. J. A. Skinner. A Canadian has won the highest award  at Bisley, the King's (or Queen's)  Prize,  on seven occasions.  Who was the first Canadian  Cardinal?  Elzear Alexandre Taschereau,  born in 1820 at Ste. Marie de la  Beauce in Lower Canada, was.  created a cardinal of the Roman  Catholic Church in 1886, the first  Canadian to be so honored. He  was the son of the Hon. Jean  Thomas Taschereau, a Quebec  judge, and Marie Panet, daughter of the Hon. Jean Antoine  Panet, lawyer and politician. The  future cardinal was educated at  the Quebec Seminary and in  Rome. For 30 years following his  ordination in 1842 he was connected with the Quebec Seminary  as professor, director or superior. As superior of the seminary  he was ex officio rector of Laval  University for many years and  supported that institution in its  long struggle agaiast the extreme ultramontane group. He  was consecrated archbishop of  Quebec in 1871. Four years before his death at Quebec in 1898  he was obliged by ill health to  retire from the administration  of his diocese.  ' However changeable the  weather-vOf pre-spring and whatever the prospects of a good  growing season ahead the crop,  in the seed catalogues is flourish-'  ing in perfection.  Vegetables of special' award  quality and gorgeous flowers are-'  immune to the. hundred-and-one  hazards that tempt the grower  to put his seed packets back on  the shelf and" overhaul his fishing gear, as being less speculative and-more likely to produce  results than risking more disappointment in the garden.  But the seedsmen's offerings  are worth looking through if only  to see what the ^hybridizers haye  been up 'to since last year", and  one .may be sure that they have  been at work as usual for the  attempt    to    improve    familiar  things  and the search for new  never ceases.  One firm gives a  special   page   to   novelties   that  comes between me and the rest  I promised myself this year!  Research botanists of today  are equipped--with such tools as  > never before ' in the history of  cultivation. ' One' of the. most  spectacular;\in results is a siirt>'  stance -known as colchicine���and  it should be said at once that it  is not for the use of amateurs  being a deadly poison both internally and on contact. According to my reading it is' the pattern of the microscopic, chromosomes in the cells of a plant  that insures heredity in that  plants' offspring so that like produces like in successive generations ��� allowing for the chance  and very rare mutations that  Darwin studied so closely.       '  . The peculiar power of colchicine is that when applied to a  Arrival of Spring  activity for rowdy 'coon  One evening in August when  husband Murray came home  from work there, draped around  his neck and nibbling his ear  was a young baby coon. Two or  three: weeks earlier some , cottagers "* had found the poor almost naked little animal on a  i-ock out in the lake where they  were staying. He cried like a  baby all night long. ,  They rescued him from his  orphan state and fed him till it  was time for them to go home.  He was still too young to fend  for himself so Murray said we'd  be glad to take him.  When he came to us he was  just cutting his teeth and such  a tiny, sparkly-eyed bundle of  mischief he was. He followed  the children every where they  went all summer long. >��� He nibbled holes in the screen door  then enlarged them so he could  get in and out when he wanted  tO.'   ;���;  If I were sitting in the garden  not paying as much attention as  he thought I should he'd pounce  on my toes then flip himself  away and tear across the lawn  and jump into the flower bed.  Then that sly little face of his  would : turn , and peek out from  behind the shasta ..daisies. ���He  knew I'd be' after liim to haul  him out by the. scruff of his  heck. And what then? He'd just  turn and like a streak of lightening race back for the garden  again���just to tease. ���-'  As the days got shorter and  colder Rowdy, as -he was so  named slept most of the day.  But about the time -we finished  supper you'd hear him open the  storm door. Then he heaves up  on the step and tries to shove  the inner door open. If that  doesn't work he calls to us in  a loud sing song purrrr���and the  longer he waits the louder he  gets.        ' " '   '    .  Once in the house he. heads  for his bowl of milk for a long  noisy slurpy drink. Then a bite  of food and with a funny little  flip of his hind feet he half  dances half waddles into the living room to pester Penny the  dog of try to make off with the  knitting wool or tease anyone  1 around. The sound and motion  of TV interest him. He'll roll  over to it, stand up bn his hind ,  feet arid pat the screen with his  little front hands, cocking his  head one way and then another  as he looks. s  He knows which cupboard the  jar of peanuts is in. If we don't  give him his treat as soon as  he thinks we should, he waddles.,  out to the kitchen, pries open  the cupboard door, grabs the  bottle and rolls it out on the  floor. So far he hasn't figured  but how to unscrew the top but  he's working on it. After an .  hours play we're quite ready to  put him outdoors.  But Rowdy's not ready to  leave. No amount of coaxing of  bribing will get him out that  door. He'll follow a tasty tid  bit just so far���then flip���around  he goes and scampers off to hide  behind a chair. The only way to  do it is to grab him by the scruff  of the neck and while he cusses  and fusses in coon language you  carry him out, put him down  on the lawn then race inside  lickety split because he's racing  for inside too.  He almost had us outwitted  the other night. Every time  Murray went to grab" him,  Rowdy threw himself flat on his  back, his little hands up by his  , esrs and when Murray tried :to  rrll .him ���; over Rowdy hissed at  him like a spoiled brat. However so far- human cunning is  a wee bit ahead of coori cunning.  He finally went out in the usual  way but he most certainly  didr't like it.   .  The last few days have been  snowy and cold and Rowdy has  started his hibernation. He  found a hole down under Murray's workshop and that apparently is, where he plans to  spend ;^!he winter. $ Murray'says  that he can hear his funny little song-song crooning wafting  up from under; the floor. Oc-_  casiphally he pokes his sleepy-  eyed;; face out of the hole to say  hello to Murray and then disappears again. We find that, we  miss fern's rowdy antics" and- look  forward to his company again  comei'spring. ��� H. R.  flower that is ready for pollination it disarranges that pattern  and produces seeds that,,grow  a weird and varied family that  includes freaks never seen before, others that may resemble  the parent plant with improvement from our point of view and  some that are' reversions'to ancient 'ancestral., forms ��� anything of the kind can' happen  after a dose of colchicine. We  may' well hope that no enthusiast succeeds in adapting this  potent substance for use on humans or we might find ourselves  back in the trees!  One outstanding success followed its use" on the marigold.  The old-time flower called the  Chinese Marigold bore a pale  yellow single flower, an - inch or  little more across and the, plant  was as hardy as, a weed. With  no care at all it would re-seed  itself and ..show3 up year, after  ,year all over the'-,place?,and  since- it was pleasing' and was  still in flower when the last rose  of summer had fallen it was  spared th<? hoe. But today we  have a fully double flower almost a perfect globe in form,  four inches or even more in  diameter with , a color range  from palest yellow through a  most brilliant hue. that rivals  the sunbeams to a near approach  to a glossy mahogany ������ truly  a showy flower in any tint.  Let us not. be proud, nature  permitted our interference but  exacted a price just; to let us  know that she is still mistress.  The glowing product of the  laboratory is vulnerable to every  danger to which the tough little  old-timer was immune, and it is  difficult to- raise particularly  through the early weeks following germination. From a plentiful sowing last year;; made in  the hope of a great dazzling  patch in: full summer, I saved  five plants only, and had to fall  back, late;in the sowing season,  on a smaller but hardier type.  As Queen Victoria said after  one setback, "We do not contemplate defeat,-' "so this year I am  sterilizing all soil that will be  used-v; in ;;seed'���.."��� flats and. pans.'  Any ;sluglet' of .buglet or spore -  of a fungus plant ������^disease that  can survive a temperature of  212 deg. F. maintained for an  hour is .welcome to do what it  pleases aftef wards. It is strange,  it is:sad, but it is also true that  efectiye counter-measures'". ."always involve more work; But  that's gardening ��� and part of  the  price  for. playing  creators.  A REPORT ON  Sechelt's May Day  In a May Day celebration report to Sechelt's. municipal  council it was revealed by Capt.  Sam Dawe, chairman of Sechelt's recreation committee that  last year May. Day operation  cost $517 and that of this amount  about half was used in transporting and feeding the North  Vancouver Lonsdale Navy Cadet band and escort.  Capt.' Dawe's report added  that- over the years the committee in charge of May Day  celebrations has acquired properties and had done considerable work on Hackett Park,'  such as extending water. services to booths, and through the  kindness of Dick Branca power  was 'also extended. Over the  years "the stage was prepared  by labor supplied by John  Hayes. The work of these two  men has been-most encouraging  to the committee, Capt. Dawe  reported.  Peter Hemstreet has looked  after the loud speaker equipment which along with flags,  buntings large crown, belong to  the village. Dresses for dancers  and cloaks and skirts belong to  fhe recreation committee in trust  There are also two refreshment tents and the Hospital  auxiliary counters and equipment for one tent. ���'*"���  As the committee had new  dresses made up it should be  expected that major expenditure  should be lessened during  51^^^  ���J��4 tftia FcOuia, It*  "That's the gas tatikt"  Your local merchants keep the  economic wheels of your community turning throughout the  year.

Mrs. Bystedt took care  of the" Maypole dancers last  year because school teachers  were no. longer able to look  after this event.  Tom Parrish always attends  the meetings < representing the  fire department and various  ���groups such as the Rod and Gun  club and the Kinsmen and others also send their representatives. Sechelt's PTA can always  be relied on, Capt. Dawe said,  to make a good job of decorating the stage. Last yea*; the Legion auxiliary looked after the  visiting navy cadets and parade  marshalls and judges gave of  their time willingly.  The report added that it was  felt that the children enjoy their  day right up to the last dance  of the Queen's Ball; which for  many years Maurice Hemstreet  was master of ceremonies.  Not only have the children enjoyed themselves but merchants  of the village have had .extra  trade through purchases of food  for the booths and cafes are kept  busy with the large crowd in  Sechelt for the day. The committee also makes its purchases  in the village where possible,  Capt. Dawe added.  The May Day committee  works hard to put on this celebration, Capt. Dawe said and his  own thanks goes out to Mrs. J.  Redman, the hard-working chairman and Mrs. J. Toynbee for  their co-operation. The helpers  from other groups, marshalls,  judges and others including Mr.  Raynor for. storing the stage  also received the thanks of Capt.  Dawe.

SMITH)  THE   WEEK'S   LETTER:    ' 'I  am 15 years old and there are  boys who want to talk to me and'  who want me to be their  "steady," but my mother says  "NO!": She won't, even let me  talk to a boy.. The other day, I  was talking to a boy in front of  the house and she comes out  and tells me to get right into  .the. bouse. It embarrasses me!  I don't know whether the boy  will speak to me again .or not.  He didn't even say "good-bye."  I am frequently asked to go to  the show with girlfriends and  their dates, but I always have  to refuse since my mother won't  even let me talk to a boy. I feel  I should learn how to conduct  myself and how to carry on a  conversation with boys without  waiting until I am seventeen or  eighteen years old. By then, I  won't even: know' what to say."  OUR REPLY: You will, by the  tirne you are seventeen, know  what to say to boys* Perhaps  the reason your mother is so  strict, is to be found in the opening senterice of your letter. You  aren't even dating yet, and still  some boys have asked you to  go steady.  Because you; are young, you  may feel that parents' who love  their children give them more  "freedom," let them date and  go steady at an early age.- As  you grow older, you will realize  that: your mother . is not so  "strict", as she appears and.  that she is more conscious of  her, responsibility as a parent  than she is concerned with the  fact _that other girls your age  are having dates arid going  steady. Your mother is interested in you, in what is right for  you/ ���������"'���-.  THE   WEEK'S   LETTER:    "I  had been going .with a boy for  four months. Then, all of a sudden, we broke up, for a silly reason!; He started going with an- ;  other   girl,   more   his  own   age.  When he found out that I still .  ': liked him,  we had a little talk  and he said he never did stop  liking    me,    that he was going  with that girl to get me mad.  But, somehow, he liked her, too.  And he had to choose between'  us.  He chose her!   But when a  boy asked me to go steady, he  said he still liked me, but still  . couldn't    choose    between    us.  What can I do?  Go steady,  or  try for him once more, or what?  I really like him a lot!"  OUR REPLY:   Get     off    the  "steady" bit. If you, like a boy  and he askes you for a date,  this does not mean that it necessarily follows there must be a  choice between going steady or  breaking up completely.  Many teenagers start going  'steady',' too early. Why? This  writer doesn't believe teenagers  themselves know': the answer.  Years ago, a boy would ask a  girl for a date for a picnic, a  dance, or some particular social  event. Today, he sees a girl who  strikes his fancy and he says, in  effect, "How about going with  me, everywhere, all the time,;  and not having anything to do I  with. anyone else?" He doesn't  use these same words, but it  amounts - to the same thing.  Many girls accept, probably s because it is as easy for teenagers  to "break: up" as it is to start  going "steady." .  The girl or boy who* agrees to  going "steady" also goes "out  of circulation," so to speak.  Some boys will not ask a girl for  a date if they know she is going  "steady" or if they know she believes in going "steady" or not  at all.

Tab-  bernor daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Alfred Tabbernor, North Vancouver. The Tabbernors at one .  time lived at Hopkins Landing.  The venerable Roberts Creek  Community Hall,- 30 , years old  this May 24, resounds happily  with music, song and tomfoolery  these practice nights as Country  Capers rehearses for its presentation on April 3.  At the far end of the hall a  group of three may be found  counting earnestly as they wrestle, with a new dance routine; on  the stage another group is huddled about the piano as the musician pounds his pate and transposes music to accommodate the  different voice ranges; one corner of the kitchen is occupied by  a' guitar player, a violinist and  two or three singers; and - still  others, comforted by coffee,  which is always available, discuss programming and other essentials.  In private homes the activity  goes on, too, evenings, morning  coffee breaks, afternoons. Our  woods are filled with talent ���  much more co-operation, participation and suggestions and it will  require two nights to run through  the list. The directors are tearing' their hair in desperation trying to devise a program in which  the acts don't overlap and the  actors don't meet themselves  coming off the stage as they go  on.  It is truly a heart-warming experience to witness the hard  work and cheerful co-operation of  this group in their effort to present a pleasing prograrii and at  the same time raise money for  the hospital.

On1 the one hand, young  Indian children were subjected  to very little discipline; on the  other hand, in seeming contrast,  they were trained to endure extremes of-cold.  - It was believed that freedom  from restriction while a child  was very young led to greater  self-reliance at maturity. At the  same time, both boys and girls  could see, around them every  day living proof of the dictum  that prestige in adult life depended upon learning very ex-  C.

Perhaps the presence of an  environment which, except for  brief. summer months, was a  very harsh one, which made itself felt on all sides about the  comparatively, small village,  and in which one could not survive for very long removed from  the stored foods gathered in cooperation wfth 'others; was felt  by even' the very young, and  caused '" them to be amenable'  to learning.  With, boys, permissive discipline was employed during, early ���  years in order to secure courage  later on. One of the ultimate  characteristics; one of the paramount needs of, the- primitive  male, is courage. Courage, in its  ultimate sense, can mean, not  a rational adjustment to fear/'  but a. total absence of fear in the  face a real danger. Absence of  fear in adulthood can only be  attained through its absence dur-  joke of the Week  "I don't expect to make a  lot of money but at least it  gives me something to.do."  886-2192 - MU 3-1393  REID'S  Moving & Storage Co.

So the native peor  ' pies " of the North American  North-West Coast raised their  children in an atmosphere devoid of fear.  Behavior was literally unrestricted during early, formative  years. Free from punishment,-  the child grew to adolescence  undistorted by a fear of parents;  free from fears he would inevitably transfer to other human beings and to wild creatures  Over and over  again,   seated  on the- beach at HUN'-AH-CHIN,  during  a   visit  there,   Clarence  Joe would point to almost sheer  .cliffs along which his forefathers  had hunted mountain goats, and  say, "You see, they were without fear."  They had,  he would  elaborate, no form of'peril, from  either another creature or from  ������the  face  of a precipitous cliff.  To have, been hampered by fear  -would  have  rendered  their  exploits impotent and* at times led  to extinction from lack of food.  While these people had no fear  of physical'attributes of nature,  they did fear what to them were  supernatural   phenomena.    Such  fear  need  not  implicate  inconsistency. Attitudes towards physical   aspects   of  life , are  real;'  and produce results which, while~  sometimes   fatal,   can' be ; mea-^  sured arid accounted for.  Fear?'  of lightning;  SPUHK'-UHM, and!  thunder;       KWAHT-AY-MOHN'-1  ATCH, on the other hand, can-j  not be accounted: for logically,)  and  cannot be either predicted!  or measured: Perhaps, from far]  distant ages', the Sechelt people]  retained .memories    of   storms!  which were indeed dreadful, and]  against which no degree of hu-|  man  courage could prevail.  The Sechelt people did not  seem; to emphasize bravery to  a point of physical mutilation, as  some of the,more warlike tribes  in the continent's interior did.  However, they did demand certain trials which would have  proven too exacting for the weak  at heart v or limb, and which  were far and aw^ay^more vigorous an initiation into manhood  than we require of our boys today. '"���  Some examples only of these-  trials   remain.   One   took  places  about three "miles below Patrick"  Point;  KAL-PAY'-LAIN;  in Jervis ; Inlet, vori a smooth,  steeply  sloping black face of rock - along  the    shoreline,    slightly    moist  even in'summertimei over"a distance of some 75 feet. Boys were  expected to run across this surface,,   so   slippery  that  it  was  termed YAY-KLAY'-NAHSS;  the  word KLAY'-NAHSS referring to  oolachan    oil    in    the ... Sechelt^  tongue.  Failure meant  a  slider  on  back  or  stomach,   down  25  feet of bare rock into the water x  below. :'  Coast Newsi. April 2, 1964.        7  About half a mile up-inlet, a  point, called by the Sechelts  KWUH-O'-TAH, rises 3(T feet or  so from sea-level. Boys aspiring  to manhood were required to  leap from this, cliff. Even though  the rock faceyJs vertical, with  an overhanging lip at its top,  the clearance, is riot nearly as  much as that offered by a springboard. Paintings on \ the cliff-face  have also give it the name WY-  AH'-HAH-LAX.v  A few hundred yards above the  lower end of SAUGH'-AH-NAH,  the only vertical1 cliff of the lake  rises sheer from its waters. As  story has it, a traditional trial  of bravery required, of a candidate for manhood that he ,swirri  to this cliff from the' shore opposite. Since the intervening distance was little more than a  hundred yards, distance, itself  presented' no problem. The test  of bravery arose, rather, from  a legend, according to which the  lake was frequented by TCHAIN'  KO, the evil serpent. The terrors that immersion iri : water  inhabited by this incarnation of  evil itself must have presented  to a being steeped in belief are  almost incomprehensible today.  Strangely enough, more than  one settler of European extraction has* reported sighting a  monster near this very spot. The  largest of all Sechelt rock paintings covers the cliff above the  ledge at which successful candidates once completed their swim.

The secondjeg of the Gibsons
Mercs and Port Mellon cup tie
was played before a good sized -   good   display   of  goal   keeping;
flatter has a wonderful throw-in
and the forwards, should, take
niore advantage of this than they
do. Carey was the man inthe .
Mercs, forward line and it was
fitting . that he scored the-" goal
that counted. \
"Outstanding   for   the   visitors
were Watson who gave a very
crowd, Sunday at the end of the
regulation 60 minutes of play,
the teams turned around and
played 20 minutes extra time.

Anderson and D. JDavies were

credit along with the keeper for
