Gibsons  and Port Mellon presently have  " free  calling' between  them   and  'p the Extended Area Service would  be broadened to include Sechelt.  Gibsons and District voted unan-  ' imously at Monday night's ^dinner meeting in Peninsula' [Hotel  in favor of the B.C. Telephone  company's move to Jift- phone  tolls between the Gibsons and  Sechelt areas. It was felt it  would be a, good .thing for melding the communities together.  Ballots were mailed on March  13 for a plebiscite to determine  whether Gibsons, Port 'Mellon  and Sechelt exchange subscribers  want free telephone-stalling.be-  tween^the exchanges. 'V^'* l-   -t  B.C. Telephone Company stated that ballots must be returned  to its North Vancouver district  office by March 27. ;  The proposal,'"initiated by local Chambers of Commerce and,  subsequently approved'by "village  commissions in Gibsons and Sechelt, would '"eliminate a minimum charge of 20 cents for station-to-station   and   35   cents  on  Upon approval of the plebscite  the three'exchanges would be  combined for establishment of  new monthly rental rates. This  would result in slight monthly  increases for the exchanges.  E. R. Boyce, company district  manager,'said that the proposed  Extended Area Service and the  rates applicable will be fully explained in a letter' accompanying each ballot.'  He estimated it will be late  ','1965 before engineering can be  completed 'and more circuits installed-to handle the number of  calls .on Extended Area Service.  Past experience has proven that,  with Jfree calling, the rate of  casing between two points in-  crr'-\ses at least three times.  Rates would not charge until  E.A.S. is introduced.

Beatle screamers at Sechelt  Family Night, March 13, was  an extremely good program of  talent from a variety of sources  on the Peninsula.  The tumbling displavs bv the  boys    of    Sechelt    Elementarv  School   and   Sechelt   Residential  school pupils'-"were-'sbvgood and,  everybody enjoyed them greatly.  Marilyn MacKenzie of Sechelt  Flementary School did a lively  Irish tap dance and Janice Mul-  lins, one of the younger pupils  of the Elementary school put on  a surprising show" of baton twirling for one so small.  . West Sechelt Tiny Tots rhythm  band were very' good and the  Grade six of the Sechelt Elementary school showed the amusing  sketch of the Unicorn in the,  Garden. Gail Billingsley was a  very good wife and Kent Sheridan was a good, rather flustered  husband.  In' the musical department  William and Deborah Dockar  did . two fine piano solos and  Sharon Malyea's pupils entertained ' with several lively numbers  on their accordians.

Lamb, president of the Sechelt Elementary  school thanked all who had helped to make the evening a success. She especially thanked  those not involved with the PTA  who contributed the candy eaten  during the intermission and.  those people on stage and off  stage who helped in getting the  various acts ready for the stage.  - On Sunday, March 15, the Residential school teani'( soundly  whipped -the Merchants'. and in  the process of doing so became  ithe 1963-64 league . champions.  After the first five minutes or  so of the1 game, the local defence  found themselves unable to cope  with the fast attacking - wing  game of. the superbly conditioned  ^Sechelt boys and the visitors were  able to score almost at will.  With still one more game to  play in their league schedule the  school team can not be overtaken, and for tht second year in a  row the CFP trophy stays in Sechelt area. To wind up a^ satisfactory soccer season the five  top teams in the league will now  commence to play off for a newly donated Coast News trophy,  and the draw for this competition was made at a commission  meeting on March_2.    _  Six join  auxiliary  Membership rose by' six: new  members at Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary's March 12 meeting.  There are now 41 in the area doing their bit towards the new  hospital.  ' A financially profitable' report  on the recent Smorgasbord  prompted a decision to send a  cheque for $600 to the H.I.D. in.  payment for a diathermy machine. The next goal is to complete funds for a room in the  new hospitail.  With this in mind, the auxiliary  is hoping for a good turnout at  the annual Spring Fashion Show  showing: styles" from    Thriftee'  Dress ^Shop^Marone Men!s rW.ear.  and Todd's- Drygoods.4 This ��� pop-  ~nW":wfl*mf3-war take-place-on  April 15, 8 p.m. in Gibsons High  School.

Oily birds create problem for students  Early   Thursday   morning   of'  last week various people phoned  >the Coast News about the distres- ;  ising   situation, involving   waterfowl and oil on their habitat ���  wster.  Next an alert citizen informed  the Coast. News a rescue move  was underway , with students at  Elphinstone .Secondary������ school  taking ;part/i��*^j    ..������������.'.'..���'',  Then came a long-distance call  from the CBC asking for a checkup and a return call to give them  ���a chance to evaluate the situation. The return call shortly after 1 o'clock satisfied CBC so a  photographer was to be on his  way, leaving Horseshoe Bay"-.by  boat.  He arrived sometime after 3  p.m. and was directed from the  Shell float around the maze of  boats.to the right place. Without  waste of time he merged with  the. Elchihstone students directed by Don L. Montgomery, vice-  principal, and began taking moving pictures' of dead birds, live  birds and groups of students holding up birds in various degrees  of oiliness. , ,  After 40 minutes of directing  and photographing the CBC man  Itoarded his craft and turned towards Horseshoe Bay. He left  behind him the information the  pictures would be on the 6:45  p.m.; news.  They were and-in the time he  had available he can be credited  with a good job.    :  The method of trying to salvage  live birds by the biology class  of Elphinstone Secondary school  students was supplied by parks  'Officials in Vancouver who suggested placing the birds in a sawdust filled enclosed room so they  could get some of the oil off by  burrowing into the sawdust.  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 bards; the way young people ���  have;pitched in and worked-to  save..; the'. stranded birds.     ;  The beaches have been patrol- '  led regularly, sometimes after a ;  newspapef route was completed  and always with homework still J  to be done. Some of these young- '  sters have been iip early in the  morning   and   out; again   before  'school,^coming' through the vil-.  lage   carrying   oil-soaked   birds  before 8 a.m: These same boys  have been out again with flashlights after dark.  Regardless of how big or aggressive the birds were, and  iloons and western grebes have  three to four inch beaks with stil-  leto sharp points which they do  not hesitate to use with considerable force, the boys have, figured out ways of catching them  without becoming impaled on the  sharp beaks.  Many homes have had ducks  drying off beside the stove, or  packed in sawdust to absorb the  oil, and one family have had six  or more ducks in the bath tub at  one time, while in the living room  were cartons containing loons  and grebes of various sizes.  Quietly supporting the human-  itaran efforts of their sons have  been of course their mothers, who  have cheerfully coped with oil-  soaked birds, oil stained clothing, and children, birds in the  bath tub and generally upset routine; mothers who have manipulated the family budget to provide food for the starving birds,  sardines, herring, cereals or cod,  whatever they could be persuaded to eat.  By and large it has been a  heartbreaking task, far too often despite all the care the birds,  especially the ducks, succumb,  but the valiant efforts of these  fine young people deserve the  (highest praise.  Co-operative  capers help  It can't be said of the Coun-  trv. Capers gang that they are  not a co-operative lot. They  rt,on��Tpd their first date from  March 28 to April 4 to accommodate another entertainment  booked for that night, and now  they have changed it again, to  April 3, for another group. April  3 is a Friday but since the show  is scheduled to run only a couple  of hours, the same good crowd  is expected to come, bringing  their week-end guests along.  For those who complain about  there being nothing to do in this  dull old hole in the woods ���  just let them try to find a free  night when casts, audiences,  square dance groups, public  dances, smorgasbords, meetings,  bowling and numerous other activities don't conflict.  Many of the cast of Fandango  will appear in Country Capers,  April 3, Roberts Creek Hall.  BACK   FROM   NASSAU  Mrs. W. Hartle returned last  week from a flying trip to Nas-  ��� sau and environs where she joined her parents who were holidaying there from England! Swimming, sunshine, and flowers filled her few short days there, but  now that her father has bought  property on one of the islands  near Nassau a winter visit may  become a pleasant habit.

The current week's  paper is away, and travail- for  the next week's issue hasn't  started. On such a morning recently the editor too innocently  asked me if I knew anything  about steelhead, and I rose to  his bait. He handed me Steel-  head Paradise to review.  The author, Mr. John F. Fen-  nelly, a gentleman and a sports  ties into Babine Riven and  across the mouth, of the lake  was a gravelly shoal, where lay  vast number of trout, picking up  salmon eggs. The time I'was  there, the Indians were (down  the river, spearing salmon at a  weir, all but one woman, whom  father prevailed on --to provide  salmon roe for us.' We got a  canoe, and went out into the middle of the mouth of ^he lake  where there was a pole to which  air service, ^people - can fly in  from--Seattle with a stop for  customs and gas ,at Nanaimo,  so that in a'few more years this  last . wilderness .will-be wide  open, and .the ''steelhead, whose  numbers are by -nature, limited,  will be fewer and smaller. If  these visitors are as knowledgeable and sporting as Mr. Fen-  nelly, there will, be. fish enough,  for all for a long time to come.  This is a book, one of a number of recent vintage about our-  province, that will grace any  home   in   British  Columbia  or  elsewhere as a gift, and will  probably be a collector's item.  Our provincial government has  gone to a lot of expense to advertise > across the continent our  Beautiful British Columbia and  what it holds for -a sportsman,  but here is a-hard-headed down-  east American who makes a  book like this for the fun of it.  It would be fitting for the province to give Mr. Fennelly ^a  homesite on his Johanson Lake  in appreciation of what he has  done for us. -Maybe he would  write another book.

Box 280, Gibsons, B.C. Authorized as second class mail for  The time yqu . .. . save?  When questioned about a citizen's complaint that he had a blonde  passenger in an official car, a youthful constable of the RCMP explained his passenger was a store mannequin, used as a ruse to lull  the suspicions of motorists who passtd by his parked patrol car with  results that seemed highly effective. .i  Although his zeal to enforce traffic regulations seems ridiculous,  lit does bring home a realization, and a painful one at that, of the  vexed state of motoring and motorists on B.C. highways; How much  expensive time do police consume pursuing motorists like an angry  (householder after mischievous children, or, lurking like ���footpads '  near the highway, to catch violators of traffic rules. Policemen state  traffic law enforcement is the most distasteful of their duties, yet  because of some motorists, it must be done.  The answer really rests with the motoring public. The real issue  as not motorists against law enforcement but mtotcrist against motorist and pedestrian. Would it not be better if we started to consider  a traffic standard useful to ithe greatest number.^  ual choice of speed and ignorance of traffic practices that many defend as a right emblazoned on the BdH of Rights.  Is the young man with superb eyesight and co-ordination more  dangerous driving at 50 miles an hour than the timid middle-aged  driver varying from 25 to 40 mph depending;. on'how far he can see?  Then there is the driver who hacks from a lane tocross* a lughwiay^:  ..the driver who turns from his lane without a signal, another who  slows to a crawl 200 yards from aturn he intends tomake. Then.the  driver with only parking lights in use makes one delight to suggest  tfiat like the emperor's formula in the Mikado, the punishment  should fit the crime.  The corrective lenses needed to change our views of motoring  are long overdue. The motorist may have to' prescribe for themselves ��� and soon, too.  Nobody has been able to provide a satisfactory answer to the  question: What does the excessive speed driver do with the time  he.saves?  Tests have shown that the time is not worth the risk. The B.C.  Automobile Association points out that if a car is driven at 65 m.p.h;  on the open road where the posted limit is 60, four minutes will be  saved on a 50-mile trip. One-fifteenth part of an hour!  If you drive at 35 m.p.h. where the safe speed would be 30  m.p.h., the BCAA says the time you save in one mile is no more than  17 seconds.  However frantic life may be, nobody would notice reducing a  meal hour by one minute; sleeping time by five minutes; the time  spent under a shower by 30 seconds.  Yet such adjustments in even the most hectic schedule would  eliminate the risks of excessive speed ��� a primary cause of highway deaths.  man, has reaped distinction in * we _, ?��d }he canoe: then we  surprisingly different fields. For  relaxation tried trout fishing,  and became a virtuoso at that.  In the pursuit of this sport he  angled his way west, and in the  rivers of Oregon and Washington he encountered his first steel-  head, and that was the finish of  him. Then he heard about' the  untouched steelhead fishing in  the Skeena River basin in'  northern British Columbia, went  there, found his paradise and  wrote this book about it:  -. ���������. ;^.%���--:%-r-#Y-~:-~yr~-y  He has nicely blended a description of the country with appropriate remarks about the bad  weather and.grizzly bears-which;;  on occasions interfered with his   _  caught trout until our hands became chafed with pulling on the  silk line.  * * *  These we gave to the Indian  woman, who smoked them for  her own use, and as a cultus  potlatch from me, she was entered on the HBC books at Babine as entitled to a pound of  tobacco every August, in case  we should come back again and  go fishing.

The School Saving club now  operating at Gibsons Elementary  school is a service for children.  Volunteer collectors attend the  school one day each week at a  time set aside by the principal.  To date there are 203 children  in this club, 35 of them are at  Gibsons Elementary school. All  are under 16 years of age.  Entrance fee is ten cents and  then students with a School  Savings record card receive a  passbook recording each $5  share. Students become shareholders in Roberts Creek Credit  Union and a dividend is paid on  each ?5 share at the end of the  year. Children may withdraw  their funds upon' authorization  of parents or guardian and savings can be transferred to any  credit  union  in  the  province.  The local credit union operates  under charter from the provincial government and funds are  protected under a security bond.  Books and transactions of the  union are inspected periodically  by government officials. The office of the credit union is in the  Credit Union building on Porpoise Bay road in Sechelt and  the phone number of 885-9551.  School Savings Clubs are now  in operation in several B.C.  school districts, and are being  organized in many places  throughout the province under  the sponsorship of the B.C.  Credit Union League and its affiliated credit unions.  These clubs aim to encourage  the habit of saving and to demonstrate the practical value of  co-operation. Club membership  lays the foundation for a permanent savings plan, teaches  young people the control and  budgeting of their own money  and encourages . thrift. Club organization can be a valuable demonstration of sound business  practices, democratic control  and mutual 'responsibility.  Gems of Thought  OPEN HEARTS  AND  MINDS  Minds are like parachutes.

Although   no   detailed   history  lodges there, reserved for Winter ceremonies.  Basil Joe, son of Joe, Dally,  has retained the names of the  lodges belonging to TSOH'-NYE,  highest ranking village. The  first lodge, which fronted the  beach, was called KAY'-LAHWT.  It was a' store-house for food.  Especially when ' the Sechelt  people were to play host to festival visitors from% neighboring  nations, great quantities of fish,  meat,' clams, berries' and < other  foods had to be dried and hung  or stored here.

Allocation  of  space    at  least  in   the   central  festival   resort,   was   thus   quite  specialized among these people.  Socially, ��� inhabitants of a village, would be divided into three  castes: ���  aristocrats,     KWAHT-  KWAHT - EHM';       commoners,  KWAHSS - TWAYT' - AHSS     and  slaves.- Since slaves were almost  all- obtained   through   raids   on  peoples   beyond   the   bounds" of  established alliances,   and  since  the Sechelts were generally the  victims, not the perpetrators of  raids,' a slave caste played very  little  part  in   their  society.  Commoner . and aristocratic  classes, while undoubtedly crystallized, at their extremes, permitted a certain amount of vertical mobility: at the rather hazy  line that distinguished them.  Social status depended.. _essen- .  tiallyy on^ behavior,, and ability.  Aristocrats ,ied in hunting creatures' of the sea arid beasts of  the forests. Aristocrats ��� did artistic carving and painting. Aristocrats preserved and perpetuated the1" nation's'1 heritage - by the  STAHW system, by which each  boy of a noble family was oblig  ed to memorize, word for word,  stories told him by his elders.  Only a boy with a naturally retentive memory could be trained to be a STAHW. Such a boy  was called TSUHK'-HAHK;  "Good Memory." Basil Joe  could become the storehouse of  information he is only because  he was, from birth, a TSUHK'-'  HAHK.  Aristocrats lived according to  the highest moral and ethical  code of the culture. If a young  man of noble birth* was inclined  to wish to' deviate in hisx be- *  havior, he might be admonished  thus: "It is all right for the  commoners to behave in that  way, but you must not ��� you  are KWAHT-KWAHT-EHM'.

Shakespeare, it may  be recalled, has Prince Hamlet,  in his self-recrimination, -call  himself a rogue and. peasant  slave, not,* obviously, because of  any low rank, but because of  his base~ behavior.'  At ihe h��ad of the nobility  stood the chief; the HAY'-  WOHSS. His status depended, to  a- degree' at least, upon superiority- in leadership.' Heredity- of  title held good only' providing  the heir showed signs of com-'  petence; otherwise succession  might pass toc some' other member of the nobility, all of whom  were of course related to 'the  chief and to one aripther.  The man who acted as chief  in normal times did' not lead  his people into battle. When  fighting was to be undertaken,  a special leader, a- SKY'-AKTH,  was called .upon.' From what  .some: of the Sechelt,'people say,  we can infer ttiat this individual  led/throughout most of his'life,  a- rather pitiable existence., He  dwelt apart from the . rest of  the village, with his family, and  children were forbidden' to' go  near him, - lest he- harm them.

The presence of two' leaders  would attune- with Sechelt philosophy. Jugt as the condor, the  symbolic force for good, could  not combat' "the serpent with  evil, so the chief who symbolized  all that was- best - in life could  not lead- in war, which, -to the  Sechelts,'was no'happy occasion.

It is one of the hard  ���' and fast rules of Lions International that the membership fee  must be paid before anyone is  elected to any office in the club.

In*-what turned out to be a  .prelude to the case, the couple  brought a sample of clover mites  to, the Harrow station for identification and for suggestions on  how to, get rid of them, relates  Dr. W^H. Foott, an entomologist at Harrow.  Subsequently, the couple returned to report a new infestation and to get the name of the,  chemical which proved so effective previously.  This' time, they said,' they  were plagued by small, white  insects which clung tenaciously  to their blankets and which appeared to be "playing possum"  because they did not move when  touched.  To get proper rest, the couple  continued, it was often necessary to get up during the night  and vacuum the bedrcom.  At Dr. Foott's request, the  husband returned with a bottle  containing blanket fibres and  several of the "insects." An examination under a microscope  followed.  The finding: hallucinations on  the part of both husband and  wife. The "bugs" were simply  small pieces of lint embedded  in the fibres of the cloth.

Mom Mortimer sat among the  boxes of poppies she had ready  for   distribution   and  reminisced  about  the  war. days  when  she  was, according to the Edmonton  Journal,  pride  of not only  the  "Navy    but    Edmonton,    Madge  "Newman of Roberts Creek wrote  Hast NovlU. ���������''���'.'���  As one of, the earliest members of Navy Mothers . Club in  Edmonton, the first club of its  kind in Canada, she met all  trains in and out of that city,  day and night, in summer  ���weather or forty below, with a  bail or farewell whichever the  case might be, for the lads in  l>lue  The Navy Mothers Club,  which started in February 1940  -with a membership of six, grew  ���rapidly until in 1946 its numbers  rose to better than 1200.  Accommodations for servicemen in those days were., less  than adequate, and many a lonesome seaman found his way to  the Mortimer home, where the  ���doors were never locked. Eilits,  blues, khakis, airforce blues, all  were   greeted   with   the   same  cheery "Hello swetheart," all  received the same amount of  smokes, coffee, letters and parcels. If "Mom" leaned towards  the Navy it was because two  of her sons were in it; Don, who.  was killed on D-Day and Morris, who survived.  Mementos of those hectic days  include nearly 30 photographs of  ships and crews that have been  presented to her, crests from  divers ships, seasonal greeting  cards, gifts of china and silver  and dozens of grateful letters  from boys at sea or bases far  a-sea. Not the least of these are  the two medals for distinguished  service. The last one was presented to her on Navy Day, 1956,  I'-abcard the ESquamalt, the Ship  ��that Never Goes to Sea, when  25 couples, navy; officers and  wives, and six padres, from Edmonton, came to make the presentation." -p- ���  One of Mom's treasures was a  (letter written in 1951 by Wi'lEam  Hawrelak, deputy Mayor of Edmonton, extending the gratitude  of the city for a job well done,  and  bearing   out  his  sentiment  there follows a cutting from the  Edmonton Journal, Feb. 15, 1951  which read:   "In Edmonton  the  Navy had  toe finest and most  efficient    one woman    reception  committee in, the whole Dominion.  This is backed up by the  various   articles .:in.' ..the... local  /papers. In The Crow's Nest, the  Canadian Navy paper, her fame  was  spread   to. every   province  in Canada and to all places our  navy went to."  '        '. /���:''.-.   v        \.:  Former seaman Mac : Jenson,  a travelling salesman, can testify to Mom's memory. He stepped into a store at Roberts  Creek arid was greeted by a customer standing there. "Hello,  sweetheart," she said.  He was one of the 10,674 boys  in blue- who had been mothered  toy Mom in Edmonton.:        '  Area loses faithful  worker in Alex Anderson  This district lost one of its well  known and best-liked residents  on Monday, March 9, when Alex  Anderson of Roberts Creek passed away. He was partner with/  Murray King in Gibsons Automotive.  Born in Shell Lake, Sask., 47  years ago, he received his education there until, at the age of  19, he left for Vancouver and  from there to Elk Bay where he .  was employed by the B & K Logging Comipany. When the company opened in Roberts Creek he  was one of the first of the crew  to arrive. Here he met Christine  .-Saddler and they were married  ton Feb. 17, 1939.  He left the B & K to join the  7RCAF where he - took several  ��courses in mechanics in Trenton. ���  After his discharge he worked  as a mechanic in the pity shops.  In the mid-forties the' young couple and their son, returned to the  Creek and purchased the school  bus from Dick Reeves, and with  the late Jack Edlund as partner,  operated the Roberts Creek garage. .  As driver of the school bus,  Alex endeared himself to all of  the school children. Daily he led  them in singing and harmonizing,  and Alex was kept well-supplied  with fruit, flowers and the choic-  < est bits from lunch-tooxes: Alex ���  usually slipped in a case or, two .  of pop at school picnics and the  like.  The Andersons sponsored the  first Teen Town in the district  and entertained the youngsters  in their own home. Fond of music, Alex owned a -large, selection of records, and he played  excellently the piano, accordion  and guitar. He was an ardent  fisherman, strip casting in the  lakes being one of his main  sports.  He was interested in, and supported,   all   civic   progress,   in  cluding; the hospital now building- A member of the Canadian  Legion for the past 17 years, he  ..was^also-past master, of Mt. Elphinstone Lodge No. 130 A.F. &  A.M. ��� and a member of Mt. Elphinstone Chapter No.  65, ��� OES.  ���Alex was pre-deceased by his  mother ion Feb 17 this year. He  ieaves . his wife, Christine; one  son Wilson, Vancouver; five sisters, Mrs. Bernie Mattson* Mrs.  Anne Curnew, Mrs. Minnie Elliott, Vancouver; Mrs. Elvira  Clare^ Montreal; Mrs. Carol  Black, North Vancouver.  The funeral service was held  in Gibsons United Churchc with  Rev. M. Cameron, Rev. D. Donaldson and Rev. D. Harris officiating.'  Active pall-rbearers were Keith  Wright, John Matthews, Murray  King, Harry Smith, Stan Cottrell  and. Bert Scott. Honorary pallbearers were Mr. Jefferson, Ted  Shaw, Bob Cummdngs, Charles  Brown, Magistrate Andrew Johnston and Capt. Metcalfe.

Under responsible government,  or cabinet government,  the executive depends for its right to  remain in office on the continuing support of a majority of the  elected     legislature.     Ministers  are selected from among members of the legislature and must  defend their actions and policies  from  their "places in  the legislature. A cabinet is held collectively responsible for policy and  a defeat on a vote in the legislature  implies  that  it  has  lost  the confidence of that body and,  as a rule, must make way for  a cabinet capable of holding a  legislative    majority.     Between  1848    and    1855   all  the  British  colonies   now   part of the Dominion     achieved     responsible  government ��� Nova Scotia and  the Province of Canada (Upper  and    Lower     Canada) in 1848,  Prince  Edward  Island  in  1851,  New Brunswick in 1854 and Newfoundland in 1855.  mystery solution offered  Mrs. Martha Kendall whose  father brought his family to a  homesite. where the Vancouver  Hudson's Bay Company department store now stands before  the fire of 1886, believes that she  Jips an answer to the Moscrop  Bay stone oven.  Over 60 years ago, says TTrs.  Kendall, who now lives south of  the Sunshine Coast Highv'ay  west of Gibsons, Mrs. Charles  Walker, the mother of a ��� young  girl whom she was teaching to  play the piano, -invited her- to  spend a camping holiday with  the family.  Charles      Walker's      brother,  John, had a sail boat, which he  used each summer to take the  family to some likely spot along  our coast. After helping them  establish camp, he would sail  back to Vancouver, and return  to pick them - up on some prearranged future date.  Wherever they cammed, Mrs.  Walker said, they always built  a stone oven. ��� Bread baked in  such an oven was much tastier  than that baked in a metal stove,  she contended.  . About 1896, Mrs. Kendall re-  t calls, Jhe Walker family camped  ''in Moscrop Bay, below the -preemption of Dan Steinbrunner,  .whom they met. Since no other  evidence has been unearthed,  and since this oven-building  family did camp at the site of  the mysterious object almost 70  years ago, she suggests that the  oven might have been built by  them. , She suggests that the  oven might have been built by  them. Charles Walker, Mrs.  Kendall says, was .a .blacksmith,  and his brother John was also  quite Nstrong; the two, she thinks,  could have been,.quite capable  of hoisting the large, heavy  granite cap-stone into place.

Land, at his request, and heard at that time  Mr. Land's plan for organizing  a club for them. These plans  were an outgrowth of his special interest in one group, Louis  G. Lower, a fatherless boy.   ,  Mr. - Land's proposals for a  social/ club composed of the  finest of the young men of their  own ages had been given much  careful thought and received" a  most  enthusiastic reception.  To  these youths the "possibilities for  such a club seemed almost unlimited with *" such a< man as  leader and with a7 very -interested Masonic group lending a  helping hand. ,  With such enthusiasm it was  not difficult for the nine young  men to have present the following Tuesday night' a group of  almost four times the previous  number. This group was also  quick to sense the possibilities  and readily accepted * the proposals of Mr. Land. They would  call     their    club the DeMolay  Council   for   Boys.   They   would     of    non-profit    benevolent,    re  accept only members who could   ligious, scientific, fraternal, edu  stand the test.for quality. They  would meet each Tuesday night.  After a few meetings with  such a fine group of youths,  Mr. Land sensed it needed a  ritual,  for initiating new  mem  cational and miscellaneous associations. The name DeMolay  goes back several centuries.  During the 12th and 13th centuries the powerful Order of  Knights   Templar   was   founded  bers    and    installing   'officers.- /to protect the Christians on their  Legislative views  (By TONY GARGRAVE, M.L.A..  Mackenzie Consitnenc'y.)  Ninteen-sixty-four is going to  be a great year economically  for British Columbia, but the  fear, of unemployment still stalks  our legislature and .our federal  slump, as distinct from the  problem of automation, there  can be, government spending on  such projects as slum clearance,  highways and municipal works  and ' the encouragement of industry, in depressed areas. Our  government. I was "interested to;, central- . hank ���   can/help with  .. .   -.������_���___    monetary- and.fiscal control.:; -  It is also long past time that  the provincial government introduced legislation to establish the  40-hour work week by law and  put teeth into overtime, regulations so that irresponsible employers' can not abuse overtime  work permits.  hearythat- United?-States"?Labor  ' Secretary ,-Wirtz has said that it '  might be.wise to consider raising the penalty for overtime  work at the one and one-half  rate to double time for overtime.  This would encourage employers to eliminate overtime and  hire additional workers. Secretary Wirtz estimated that the  elimination of overtime work in  the United States would open  up an extra 919,000 full time  jobs in that country.  It has been estimated that in  the next eight years Canada  must provide an average rate  ot 254,000 new jobs each year.  In a time when Canada is experiencing' a rapidly expanding  labor force, British Columbia  has the doubtful honor of having  the highest unemployment rate  in Canada.  There are many things which  a government can do. The New  Democratic Party believes that  there should be a wide measure  of economic planning at,the national and , provincial ��level. to  smooth out the booms and busts  of our' economy.  Automation, or the elimination  of jobs by machines, can be alleviated by keeping our children  in school longer, and retiring  our older workers - earlier. This  means vast investments in education and- the provision of* an  integrated system of pensions for  all.  Labor is, of course, always  asking for more vacation pay,  even to the extent of the United  Steel Workers of America securing a paid 13 week vacation for  certain senior employees. Certainly an economy, which is expanding through new investment,  and improved methods of production, can provide a total bigger pie from which these services can be sliced.  During   periods   of   economic  Frank A. Marshall,, a widely  -known newspaper editor and  writer was chosen for the task  of writing a DeMolay ritual.,  The ritual immediately won unbounded praise for its beauty,  strength and understanding. All  ritualistic work for the Order of  DeMolay, the name adopted inv  November 1919, was written by  him until his death on March -  24, 1931.  Today there are over a million youths who have received  the DeMolay obligations^ in approximately a thousand chapters'.  The '"'oprder, is mtertuiftional in-  scope.' This is of particular significance 1 to each DeMolay for  ' wherever he is or goes he cannot be far from a friendly group  and is constantly surrounded by  brothers who are or have been  DeMolays.  The Order of DeMolay is incorporated in the State of Missouri under the provision of law  providing  for the  incorporating  ���pilgrimages to Jerusalem. The  - original need for such an order  had passed, but its purpose as  the protector of the church and -  the charitable distribution of  alms made.it an influential factor in Europe. It was then Phil- .  lip, the Fair, King, of France,  began to fear it would dominate  the financial status of the nation. -  Phillip was an ambitious king,  .   at all times eager for war and  constantly at arms. Extravagent  jn his plans, he was always in  sdire need- of money.. He finally  /extracted every possible tribute  -  ,' and penny from his people. In  v desperate  circumstances he be?   -  gan  to plot  the destruction of .  the   wealthy   Order   of   Knights  Templar so that he could confiscate their wealth for use in  furthering his own cause. At this  time'the  Grand Master of^the  Templars was Jacques DeMolay.  False rumors were intentionally circulated and supposed con-   ;  ' fessions published by Phillip in  order to label publicly the organization as extremely vile and  corrupt, guilty of atrocious and-  hideous crimes." Such^an increasing "campaign eventually weakened the Templar cause in the  minds of the people until Phillip  found it opportune to strike. He  issued secret writs to all bailiffs  in France. He ordered every  Templar in the land to be seized  at a specified time and when he  struck at dawn on Oct. 13, 1307,  knights everywhere in France  were taken entirely by surprise  and  cast  into dungeons.  , ,  Through the process of torture some of the knights were  made to weaken and confessed  Coast News, March 19, 1964.     11  to    false     statements.  But DeMolay,     their    grand    master,  would not concede one point to  his     accusers     and for almost  seven   years   withstood   all   torture and punishment, fighting as  best he could to save his order.  Although confined to unbearable  prisons   and   vile   dungeons,   he  remained true to his comrades,  to God and to his order, until  he made the supreme sacrifice,  He was burned at the stake on  the Isle  de  Cite  in  the  River  Seine    in    Paris on- March 18,  1314, a martyr to the cause of  charity,    fidelity,    comradeship,  courtesy and reverence. Such a  splendid example of true knighthood   is    the   exemplar of the  Order of DeMolay.  !�������������������������������.  (���*��������������#������*�����*"*"  JOIN THE CROWD!!
