Parents of children who were  positive reactors are reminded  that a" positive reaction does not  necessarily mean that their child  has actual tuberculosis; simply  that he has been infected by  someone with TB.

One  good thing  about  silence  is  that it can't be repeated.  The death in St. Joseph's hospital in Victoria on Jan. 2 of  Rev. Harry James Bevan at the  age of 78 recalls the work Rev.  Mr. Bevan had done while he held  ��� the pastorate of; the United  Church in this area.  It was back in 1949 that he  helped organize the Roberts  Creek congregation numbering 23  who purchased a house which  was turned into a church. The  same building is still the Roberts Creek church;  In 1950 he organized services  at Selma Park and in 1954 he  dedicated the church at Port Mellon which was built by community effort aided by the Canadian  Forest Products company. In the  same year he dedicated the Davis  Much holiday mail  Post office handling of mail  over Christmas and New Year  set another record for the Gibsons area with incoming and outgoing mail showing distinct increases. Sales of the Christmas  stamp for cards were heavy and  it was noted that considerable of  the incoming Christmas mail also  took advantage of the Christmas  stamps.  In spite of bad weather there  was little delay, except for one  day when a /breakdown occurred  resulting in the arrival of incoming mail about an hour later than  usual.  Bay church which the congregation had purchased.  He was known to have journeyed to Port Mellon on foot to hold  services   and   when   possible  he  journeyed by boat. He was noted  for his scholarly approach to events, was well read and maintained what many people have described as a beautiful English in  his discourses in the pulpit and  in public speaking. He was born  in England where he leaves two  sisters.  Rev.  C. R.  McGillivray  officiated at the funeral service.  Cremation followed, Mrs. Bevan  died on July 1, 1962.'  12 hour period  for balloting  Ratepayers of Sechelt School District which takes in the area  from Port Mellon to Vancouver Bay including Bowen and Gambier  Islands will vote Saturday on two referenda seeking $368,900 for  school purposes.

The various meetings that have been held with school trustees  attending to explain the issues and answer questions have not revealed anything which inclines trustees to believe there-is any opposition as has been noted in some previous referenda.

Anyone with the habit of noting sign of wildlife who takes  a laborious walk along the forest  ways at' this time might well  pause and look about him and  ask "Where is everybody?" For,  with the exception of a few birds  -h the dauntless woodpeckers,  the rare sight of a wren hopping  out of one hideaway and into  another or the mewing call of a  towhee the woods are silent and.  apparently  deserted.  The only tracks of a member  of Mammalia that I saw were  those of a mouse who had  emerged from a. small hollow  that was roofed by snow covered brush to dive into another  similarly protected just three  feet away. And he had found  that short journey hard going,  the most recent addition to what  was already enough was too' soft  to bear his weight, little asit  is, and the signs showed that he  had struggled forward half submerged.  But this showed where the  small natives of the forest have  found shelter and are "toughing  it out" until conditions improve.  Many such hollows of varying,  size can be found, bridged by  fallen timber and branches, innumerable treetops in the wake  of logging and mats of living  brushwood that bent to the  weight but did not break under  it. Under the snowy cover the  deep litter of the forest floor is  still available to those who need  shelter and food, for it is full  ot* small life both dormant and  in   the  form   of  pupae   and  co  coons,  all  awaiting  the  call   of  spring, y      yy  When we 'were   able  to   own  pigs in the woods they could be  'seen rooting and snuffing through  that natural mulch for-hours at  a time    ���and who is a better  judge of what is  edible than a  pig?  Incidentally  our pigs  kept  superbly healthy and clean,  being  rangers  by  nature.  To the  silent,   snowy   woods   are   only  apparently deserted/  _. By contrast often noted when  a light fall spreads ��� as it were  ���  a   clean   sheet   of  newsprint  over open ground and trails  he  who. studies it finds it an early  morning   edition   of   the   Nighly  News   recording  the   tracks   of  all who-were on the move about  their   own   affairs   through   the  night, with those of the squirrels  who turn out at daybreak,'provided that he  goes  far  enough  and looks closely    under    such  good conditions.  It would be an eye-opener for  city folks who have complained  to me that they have seen no  wildlife; my reply has been that  the wildlife saw ��� and heard  them! Mice and rats, usually of  the black species, woodhare and  raccoons, more rarely weasels  and skunks all sign natures autograph book ��� a thin covering  of new snow. Deer tracks, the  most easily identified of all are  seldom seen around the clearing?  in winter but cat tracks, also  unmistakable, can always be  found and belong to feral cats  that know the excitement of the  hunt and the taste of hot meat  of their  own  killingk.  Expansion means expense      Sndwflakes and children  While it may not be a pleasant subject to speak of even though  a good many people pay only one dollar in taxes on their property,  it would not be surprising to see taxes in the average municipality  go up this year.  Last week's Ladysmith-Chemainus Chronicle headlines the fact  school salaries were going to boost taxes three mills; the Fraser  Valley Record reported a teacher salary increase of 5.23 percent;  the White Rock Sun headlined the fact its council has approved a  provisional budget which would be more than ��35,000 higher than  last year.  To suggest that both Gibsons and Sechelt will be standing still  this year as far as taxation is concerned would be hoping for more  than one is likely to get. Sechelt might be able to hold the line on  municipal taxes but one can expect taxation for school purposes will  take another jump this year. So let us not be too optimistic in hoping that this year's taxes will not be any more than they were last  year.  The school system is expanding. Municipalities are also advancing towards bigger budgets. Gibsons is growing and must take a real  good look at its expenses for future water supply. It has mox*e roads  to look after and as home building progresses on new subdivisions,  roads must be put through. Every time a road is opened up, a continuous added expense appears because the road must be maintained.  Expansion also appears in other directions and must be financed.  So the expectant taxpayer must not be too chagrined if he or she  finds that this year's total mill rate shows an advance on last year.  However there is a little sugar with the pill because this year's homeowner grant climbs to the $100 mark so there will be quite a number  who will be paying only $1 actually. But you will still be able to hear  the howls ��� and they won't be from coyotes.   .  Time marches on and on  Browsing through old copies of the Coast News, dating back some  19 years is an interesting experience from which one discovers that  the hopes and fears of residents of this area even then were somewhat similar to those general today.  Take the Feb. 26, 1946 editorial headed The Road Question! Paragraph two reads: "It may come as a shock to our trusted MLAs soon  to meet in Victoria, but we on the Sechelt Peninsula and along the  lower coast and taking in the Howe Sound area, have a road problem."  Well some of the problem has been removed but there is still the  shadow of the road to Si_uamish hovering about, darting out from  the primeval, when chambers of commerce get around to remembering it.  In its Christmas editorial for 1945 one reads this: "This paper  challenges each thinking reader to spend ten minutes this Christmas  Day in quiet, reflective thought on what we have today, what we  should be getting out of life on earth and what every grabbing influence is surely leading us into."  On April 12, 1946 the editorial page stressed reformation of liquor  laws in these words: "Our liquor control system is as efficient as it  is archaic. If one province can have sane liquor laws, why cannot  all the provinces enjoy the same? It's worth a trial for certainly nothing can be worse than the present farcical system."  Time marches on! Yes, time does ��� but it still carries almost  20 years later the same problems in varied forms that were the disturbers of yesteryear.  / �����  7 remember when we  could just scoot down  between lines of traffic!  (By NANCY CLEAVER)  To a little child, a fall of snow  is a miracle. All that white, moving loveliness he can see out his  window. Before long the earth  is covered with a magic carpet.  . No wonder it thrills him.  Appreciation of beauty comes  easily to a small child. It is  the wise mother who puts aside  her work for a few minutes to  enjoy the floating white flakes,  "softly falling" with her little  son or daughter.  Watching a fresh snow fall,  and tramping along the drifted  paths in the frosty air, will prepare a child for real i enjoyment  of poetry about. the . snow.1 A.t  bed-time, instead of a story,  read aloud to your child a-poem  such as Elinor Wylie's "Velvet  Shoes." Read its words slowly,  or better still, if he has learned  to read let him read aloud to  you the verses and memorize  them.  If you like poetry and your  child has begun to enjoy the  music, the rhythm, the word  pictures, why not encourage him  to write his own "Snow Poem?"  Your son or daughter may never  be a "great poet" so far as  earning money writing poetry.  But if a child enjoys expressing  his ideas and emotions, if he  gets satisfaction from his own  "word pictures," this is worthwhile in itself. It will also deepen  his appreciation of other people's  poetry or prose.  An eight-year-old, after the  first fall of snow produced this  little rhyme as a surprise for  her parents. Her sheet of paper  was smudged with much rubbing  out of her print-script words ���  but Xhe glo^*of literary creation  was in her eyes! '.  "The snow comes falling down  in flakes,  All on  the  trees  and  on  the  lakes.  As  we   take  our sleighs   and  slide,  Over the drifts we gaily glide.  I like the snow, it is so white,  It falls by day, it    falls    by  night."  Children are full of questions  about the snow or anything else  which interests them "What is  snow made of?" "Why does it  fall?" "Why is snow white?"  "What is snow for?"���the queries  sometimes seem endless to a  busy mother. The older boy or  girl can be encouraged to look  up information on any topic in  a reference book, but here are  simple snow facts for the younger child.  In summer we have rain-drops  falling from the clouds, but in  winter when it is colder, the  moist air is formed into snow  flakes. Snow falls to the ground,  although the flakes are each so  light, by a force or "pull" which  is called gravitation. This force  pulls anything. in the air down  to the surface of the world unless it is able to stay up by  some special means like the propeller and wings which hold up  a plane.  Snow flakes are different  sizes. The largest one are seen  on mild days when the thermometer is just below the freezing mark (at 32 degrees). The  small flakes fall when it is very  cold. The deferent patterns, for  snow flakes are six-sided. In one  snowstorm the flakes are usually all the same  design.  Snow is white because the  combination of the different  colors of a prism produce white.  Snows may fill the roads and  have to be cleared away. It is  fun to watch the snow clearing  equipment at work! Snow.->. is  valuable to the farmer. He knows  that the snow blanket, covering  his fields, conserves necessary  moisture and protects root, from  the frost.  If a child is interested in snow  crystals, do have a board covered with dark cloth (preferably  velvet) ready to catch flakes on  its surface during the next snow  fall. Many of the flakes travel  a long distance and are broken  in their descent. But the perfect  flakes are beautiful with their  lacy outline.  An inexpensive magnifying  glass shows the outline more  distinctly. . A good magnifying  glass is a splendid piece of  equipment in a family where  even one child has a nature lore  hobby. The amazing loveliness of  snow crystals has been copied  by many designers.  (Copyright)  there's more  than meets  the eye in...

This was the most widely publicized case of espionage Canada  has experienced. Revelations  concerning the extent of Soviet  espionage in this country were  brought to light when Igor Cou-  zenko, cipher clerk to the military attache in the Soviet embassy in Ottawa, left the embassy on Sept. 5, 1945, with 109 documents which he placed "before  the R.C.M.P. two days later.  Early in 1946 a Royal commission was appointed to investigate  and evaluate .the evidence and  its report was made public on  June 27 of that year. A number  of Canadians were found to have  been implicated in this espionage  network whose most important  single objective was information  concerning the atomic bomb.  WEATHER EFFECTS TREES  In areas which have a low annual rainfall the forests develop  as open stands. We can compare,  for example, the open, parklike  forests of yellow pine, which are  characteristic of the dry belt of  the interior of British Columbia,  with the dense, 'almost junglelike spruce - hemlock forests of  the northern coastal region where  the annual precipitation often  exceeds 200 inches.  The effect of atmospheric temperatures on tree growth can  readily be observed in regions  of minimum precipitation. In  such regions the forests are. generally much denser on the northern slopes of the mountains than  on the southern slopes.  On both slopes rainfall may be  the same but on the southern  slopes the air temperature will  be higher than on the northern  slopes and, as a result, the rate  of evaporation of water from the  soil will be, greater. Consequently, there remains in the soil  insufficient water to support a  dense stand. We can also see the  By)  BILL  MYRING  same effect .of temperature, on  plant growth in the dry interior  of the province by observing the  changes in the vegetation as we  proceed from the valleys up the  slopes of mountains to the plateaus on top.  The early Coast Indians knew  -this when they used cedar;shakes  to enclose their lodges," many; of  which are in good repair today,  despite the fact that they never  knew the touch of'a paint brush.  Left in its natural state, cedar  weathers to a beautiful silver-  grey driftwood color which lends  unique charm to fences,; garden  buildings and furniture ��� or rustic  sidings.  Coast News, Jan. 14, 1965.  VERSATILE CEDAR  Few of the world's woods combine the range of qualities found  in. Western red cedar. A rare  combination of natural beauty,  resistance to weather, ease of  finishing and carpentering and  stability when in. place makes  cedar one of the most versatile  of woods, indoors or out.  Western red cedar undoubtedly:  has a split personality. It presents many faces. Rather like  the chameleon, it seems to belong perfectly in -any environment. Cedar fits as naturally into  the outdoor landscape as lawns  and weeping willows. Indoors, it  creates its own atmosphere of  elegance, friendliness and grace.  Because of natural oils in the  wood, it is highly weather resistant.   ;  FORESTS AND WILDLIFE  *  Quite  contrary to widely held  belief, the over-mature forest,  the wilderness, does not provide  ideal game habitat. Without  space and light it is incapable  of supporting the variety of small  plants used as food by the most  desirable types of wildlife. That  is why many species are now  flourishing in areas that have  been opened up by logging and  settlement activities where new  growth is getting a start on the  edge of the forest. The. theory  of multiple-use forestry requires  that we \. should make the best  possible use of all forest values,  and in the matter of wildlife protection _ it is evident that good  forest management is generally  good  wildlife management.  An Explanation to the Owner-Electors in School District No 46 (Sechelt)  REFERENDUM NUMBER FIVE  PORT MELLON - LANGDALE  The first item on the referendum shows $12,400.00 for acquiring and developing school  sites in the Port Mellon-Langdale area. Amounts of $50,000.00 and $7,000.00 are shown  elsewhere in this referendum for purchasing, constructing or reconstructing buildings  on these sites and for furnishing and equipping these buildings.  EXPLANATION The Board proposes to abandon the present 4-room school (only 3  rooms of which are in use) on Canadian Forest Products Ltd. property at Port Mellon; the Company plans to expand its facilities and will require this property within  a few years.  Your trustees have decided to build a one-room school on property forming part  of Kaikalahun Indian Reserve No. 25 in the Port Mellon anta and negotiations are  currently in hand for the purchase of this property. Only primary (Grades 1 to 3 inclusive)  children .from Port Mellon will attend  this  one-room  school.  The Board also proposes to build a two-room addition to Langdale Elementary  School and negotiations to purchase suitable property are also in hand here. Children  from Port Mellon in grades 4 to 7 inclusive will be transported to the addition in  Langdale. Grade 7 students from Langdale will no longer be transported to Port Mellon.   ...';".���'.-  SECHELT AND WEST SECHELT  The Referendum shows $4,600.00 for acquiring and developing a site for a small an1-  nex at West Sechelt���this is, in fact, all for development, since we already have the  site. $3,000.00 has been allocated for rough grading and the balance of $1,600.00 is for  development.  The sum of $40,000.00 shown under section (b) of the referendum is for the construe*  tion of 2 classrooms and a play area at the Wesfl Sechelt Annex, and there is an  amount of $5,000.00 under section (c) for furnishing and equipping these rooms.  Under section (b), there is also an amount of $10,500.00 for Sechelt Elementary ���  $3,000.00 for a play area and $7,500.00 for a small library. (The Department of Education now shares in the cost of libraries in schools over 3 rooms in size.)  Why do your trustees feel that a two-room annex at West Sechelt is preferable to an  addition to the Sechelt Elementary School? Firstly, the Sechelt site is smaji and is  mostly leased land. Secondly, transportation costs will be reduced by building at West  Sechelt and thirdly we already own the site.  Our District Superintendent of Schools feels that a 2-room school is quite an acceptable unit, provided that it does not incorporate Grade 7 students and these students  will not attend the West Sechelt Annex. The annex will be planned for easy expansion  to 3 rooms or more, at which time Grade 7 can be included. Only students within  reasonable walking distance will attend West Sechelt; a survey will be made in June  and "parents will be notified.  MADEIRA PARK  The referendum shows $19,786.00 for acquiring and developing additional property to  increase the play area at Madeira Park Elementary School and to develop both the  old and the new property together. This is in line with the Board's policy of upgrading  all school-grounds in School District No. 46. Negotiations have been concluded, subject to the successful passing of.this referendum, for the purchase of suitable land  and the remaining two thirds of the referendum sum will be devoted to improving  these grounds ��� a really major task. $9,000.00 will be required for drainage, clearing  and rough grading .alone; v  Section (b) of the referendum shows $44,900.00 for buildings ��� $37,400.00 for an Activity Room and $7,500.00 for a small library. $2,000.00 and $1,000.00 respectively have  been provided under Section (c) to furnish and equip these rooms. Schools of 4 classrooms and over are entitled to an Activity Room the cost of which is shareable by  the Department of Education. ���  This may be the limit of construction at Madeira Park ��� a future possibility is a 2*  room school at Kleindale where the Board already has a site.  ROBERTS CREEK  The referendum shows $6,256.00 for the Roberts Creek Site ��� this represents $4,000.00  for clearing, and rough grading and $2,256.00 for site development. $56,900.00 for  buildings will cover $49,500.00 for 1 classroom, an Activity Room and a play area and  $7,500.00 for a small library, while the $5,000.00 for furnishing and equipping these  rooms represents $4,000.00 for the one classroom and the Activity Room and $1,000.00  for the library. ;,    ^|P  Instead of adding to the present school, could a 2-room school have been planned in  a new location? Yes, but your trustees felt that possible sites were too close to the  present school and that an addition to the present school was the best alternative  for now, as it makes for a better teaching situation. However, a new school in the  vicinity of /the Cemetery area or somewhere between Gibsons and Roberts Creek may  qome later.  GIBSONS LANDING  The amount of $18,000 under Section (b) of the referendum is to build a multi-purpose  lunch room and library at Gibsons Elementary School. Actually, under present Department of Education policy, Gibsons would have been entitled to both a separate  lunchroom and a separate library. An amount of $2,000.00 is provided to equip this  multi-purpose room.  EXPANDED SECONDARY PROGRAMS  The $24,700.00 for Elphinstone and $5,300.00 for Pender Harbour for setting up the new  Secondary School programs is unavoidable and if put in the annual budget would present a sudden large burden. Grade 11 students will start oh the new program this  September and Grade 12 will be on it next year. Under the new program students  choose between the Academic or Technical program, leading to University or an Institute of Technicology, and the Vocational stream leading into Commerce, Industry,  Services, Agriculture or Fine Arts.  PUNS AND SPECIFICATIONS AND CONTINGENCIES  These sums cover the standard architect's fees of 6% of the building costs and the  standard contingency of 5% of building* costs.  GENERAL  BUILDING COSTS The average cost of constructing a classroom varies between $13,j-  090 and $16,000 ��� about $12.00 per square foot.  PLANNING PERIOD We are only permitted to plan 3 years in advance on buildings;  a little longer on sites.  GROWTH IN THIS AREA In June, 1954, we had 1,026 students. In the intervening  ten years, school enrolment has almost doubled and we now have 1,867 pupils.  LIBRARIES The Chant Report strongly urged the Department of Education to recognize the necessity of libraries in elementary schools. The Department has now agreed  to share the cost of a 960 sq. ft. library in schools of 12 rooms and over and of a 480  sq. ft. libraryvin schools of between 3 and 11 rooms. Previously, a school had to have  500 pupils before the Department would share in the cost of a library.  EQUIPMENT COSTS   About 10% of building costs.  GROUNDS DEVELOPMENT   About 4% of building costs.  COST OF THIS PROGRAM The Referendum is for $339,575.00 of which the government of B.C. pays half. Cost to this area is therefore $169,787.50, repayment of which  is spread over 20 years. Taking interest into account, annual repayments should approximate $12,500.00 ���this is less than half a mill. The present assessment of $34,--  000,000.00 will go up, thus further reducing the mill rate. On an assessment of $5,000*,,  the first year's cost might be about $2.50.  OTHER QUESTIONS Public meetings to explain the referenda are being held at  Langdale, Halfmoon Bay, Gibsons, Sechelt and Madeira Park. In addition, any trustee or the School Board Office wil.be glad to answer any queries.  REFERENDUM NUMBER SIX  SCHOOL SITES  First item on this referendum is $20,000.00 for "acquiring and developing sites" in  various schools. Actually, all of this sum is for developing existing sites, in line with  the Board's policy of upgrading all school grounds.  The breakdown of this figure is as follows:  Sechelt Elementary ��� top soil, mulch, seeding, levelling, etc. $ 3,228.00  Elphinstone Playground ��� top soil, mulch, seeding, drainage, etc. 3,372.00  Davis Bay ���- levelling, seeding of portion, etc. 1,600.00  Halfmoon Bay ��� fill and development 1,150.00  Trail Bay -��� levelling and fill, some development 1,500.00  Madeira Park ���- additional to monies allocated in Referendum No. 5       2,500.00  Langdale ��� more clearing, development, drainage 1,150.00  Egmont & Irvines Landing ��� development 1,000.00  Pender Harbour ��� levelling, seeding, fences & tennis court 4,500.00  Totj.1 ��� $20,000.00  This development will be done in conjunction with the Board's newly-appointed Planning Committee, who will co-opt local recreation directors, etc. where necessary, and  development will be planned with respect to definite activities.  PENDER HARBOUR  The sums of $7,500.00 & $1,000.00 are for bulidnig, furnishing and equipping a small 480  sq. ft. library. The cost of this library is not shareable by the Department although  Pender Harbour has more than three rooms, because the enrolment (128) is not sufficient for the Department to agree to share in the cost of another room for library  purposes. Your trustees, however, believe that a six-room Secondary School needs a  library. Pender Harbour Secondary School has just been Accredited by the Department of Education ��� an honor rarely bestowed on such a small Secondary School.  Implicit in this accreditation, which will be up for review in a year's time, is the assumption that library facilities will be improved.  PLANS AND SUPERVISION AND CONTINGENCIES   Architect's fees of 6% of building costs and a contingency of 5% of building costs are standard.  VOTE "YES" ON JANUARY 16th!

While this is  correct without variation on  ' beaver range where; the winter  season is. not severe, the same  does not apply in terrain suffering from long periods of subzero weather.  One never finds a beaver lodge  in the north country that is riot  covered with uncemented sticks  and branches, loosely laid, before cold weather sets in. The  reason for this, no doubt, is to  gather and retain as much snow  as possible on the outside to  help keep frost from the interior, in much the same way.  as human residents of the north  pile spruce and other bough  about their dwellings, for the  same purpose.

Phone 883-2233  Ranging between Great Slave  Lake and Hudson Bay and as  far north as Ellesmere Island  the shaggy-haired, hump-shouldered musk-ox is unique among  Canadian mammals. Though he  lives in one of the most desolate  regions of North America, he  rarely strays far from his normal stamping grounds and manages to eke out a fairly substantial living. In fact, the arctic  blizzard helps him to survive by  sweeping away the snow cover  from his favorite fodder���dwarf  willows, saxifrages, grasses and  sedges. On this diet he flourishes,  adult bulls being among the  largest of Canada's native species and weighing anywhere  from 500 to 900 pounds on the  hoof.  The wolf is his only serious  enemy, apart from parasites^1  and disease, and he can usually  protect himself from these predators by forming a defensive  circle with the cows and calves  on the inside and the bulls on  the periphery. But this strategy  proved disastrous when man and  his rifle invaded the Arctic. Excessive hunting has greatly reduced the herds, but legislation  has helped to preserve remaining stocks.

Note  that you have - to cut 2 pieces  like side B. Lay out the plywood  panel  in  1" squares  as   shown  and carefully line in the component pieces or use the 1"  square diagram as a guide and,  using a carpentery square, measure and lay out the pieces.

New type breakwater  Pacific Piledriving Co. Ltd. of  Victoria, B.C., was awarded a  $55,635 contract for the replacement of a breakwater at Lund,  B.C., it was announced by Public Works Minister Jean-Paul  Deschatelets.  Five bids were submitted in  response to advertising for public tenders which closed Dec. 16,  with the Victoria company being the low bidder. Highest bid  was $77,802. Work is scheduled  for completion by March 31,  1965.  Under this contract the break  water will be constructed with  four 60-foot long pontoons of  steel..They will replace the present log-raft type breakwater  and give complete protection to  the harbour.  Plans and specifications were  prepared in the Vancouver District Engineer's office of the Department of Public Works. A. W.  Walkey, District Engineer at  Vancouver, will be responsible  for  supervision of the  work.  Facts   do  not   cease  to   exist  because they are ignored.

LETTERS  to editor  " EDITOR: With regard to the  vote that is coming up on Saturday, January 16 regarding  School District No. 46 (Sechelt).  I have been asked to point out  a few details that need explanation.  1. Any increased assessment  will fall on the property owners,  many in fact I believe in this ���  locality at least, -0%, have no  children attending any school in  the school district, they paid for  the costs of schooling their  grown-up children out of their  own pockets, even '���'���'including;  higher education, as I did.  2. What do the renter tenants  pay towards school costs? Many  have at least four children going  to the various ..schools in the  school district but pay no direct  school taxes as the owners of  property have to pay. Is this  fair, reasonable or businesslike?  3. Every renter tenant should  be assessed a certain amount  based on the number of children  going to school at the time.  Many owners have told me  they are going to vote against  both the By-laws 5 and 6. Under  the above listed details it seems  only reasonable for them to do  so. They realize that the remedy  does not lie with the local School  Boards but with the provincial  government.���B."  L.  Cope.

This  freedom is long overdue. But  some people' regard it with foreboding. They claim that amending our own' constitution will lead  to the balkanization of Canada  as a nation.  Such a charge is ill-founded. A  procedure for, altering our Canadian constitution is one .thing.  Shifting powers from Ottawa to  the provinces is another. Indeed  the two are quite distinct. One  is a procedure. The other is a  doubtful objective This should  become more obvious with the  publication of a White Paper on  this subject- early in they New.  Year. ���'������.."���; O'p'P-o      ...��� y\:-:  Mr. Diefenbaker has voiced his  concern about our adoption of  the new constitution amending  procedure.   Even  he,   it   seems,  John Hind Smith  PORT MELLON  TO PENDER HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Res. 886-9949  Gulf  Supplies  SECHELT���Ph.   885-2283  EVERYTHING FOR YOUR  BUILDING NEEDS  has lost sight of the fact that it  is similar to the one advanced by  his own government" ai few short  years ago.  The only important deviation  from the Fulton formula" of 1961  relates to those powers listed in  the British North America act  as exclusively federal in character. In 1949, the Liberal government under Mr. St. Laurent  took the position N that Ottawa  need not consult anyone in this  . connection. This pronouncement  started a' row with the provinces.  They were afraid that their provincial representation would not  be safeguarded in the senate and  the house of commons. Now Ottawa has decided to allay their  fears. It will listen to, their representations. But it is not bound  to take their advice ��� only to  consult with provinces before it  acts.  Another  of Mr.  Diefenbaker's  charges is that the new amending formula  sets  Quebec  apart  from the other provinces. This is  not true. The text of the amending procedure specifically denies  the possibility of Quebec establishing   itself   as   an   "associate  state."    The    relevant    section  reads as follows:  "There is absolutely nothing in  the proposed amendment that,  directly or indix-ectly, explicitly  or, implicitly,  provides  for  the granting of a special status,  Within   the   Canadian   Federation to one or other of the provinces."       .' <������ ���  If there are other doubts, Mr.  Fulton's memorandum���the one  . he sent to Mr. Diefenbaker and  his "other former colleagues  on  October  26,   1964  ���   should   set  them" to rest.  In it Mr.  Fulton  said that:  "These provisions do not confer any new jurisdiction of power  on the provinces; nor do they  have the effect of diminishing  the federal jurisdiction or power .  in the slightest."  . In other words, Ottawa has not  given up any of its authority, indeed it is freer. It is free to do  certain things which it could not  do before. It can assume some of  the powers of the provinces if a  group of four or more wish to  band together and turn some of  their powers over to the federal  government. In return Ottawa  can delegate a federal power to  four or more provinces. But these  are ad hoc arrangements. They  can be terminated. Ottawa, for  instance, can recover its delegated"_>'6wer af any'time."  Obviously the new constitution  amending process will add an  element of flexibility to our Canadian parliamentary institutions.  With this flexibility comes  strength. It is a strength which  itself adds to, rather than detracts from, the authority of Canada as a nation.  In 1962, advertisers again spent  more money in newspapers than  in any other medium, and the  newspaper remains overwhelmingly dominant as a local ad-  'vertising medium.

This is not correct, and I wish  to place the proper facts before  any interested readers, especial-,  ly Sechelt taxpayers, in case they  think they have been overcharged by me for snowplowing.  As you later state in your article, I do receive $100 per month  for maintenance work, for grading, street cleaning machines,  park and roadside mowing, etc.  This amount of work had already  been' accomplished before the  snow started.  After the first serious snowfall  the entire village, the hospital  driveways and parking areas, all  service stations and store parking areas, RCMPolice driveways  and various others, were all  plowed out, at no" charge to them  whatever.       .

Mr. Merling, principal of Roberts Creek  Elementary who has an overhead  projector of his own finds it a  great time saver with a mixed  class of Grades 6 and 7. Questions, assignments, maps and diagrams can be written on plastic  and projected onto a screen, and  re-used at will. It is riot, generally  appreciated  how  much  time  a teacher spends before and after school writing arid re-writing  assignments and questions on the  blackboard. A teacher can also  use  the projector  effectively  to  explain   or   demonstrate   mathematical or other problems without turning his back to the class  to write on the blackboard. Overhead projectors are also in use  at Sechelt and Elphinstone.

A return invitation  for  Dallas   Elementary  to  visit  Sechelt is planned for the spring.
