This film takes you to  classrooms in Japan, -Poland),  Puerto Rico and Canada. You see  many illuminating glimpses of  student-teacher relationships, of  the status of the teacher in the  community, of the importance  placed on education. Where each  succeeds or ;fails is for you to  caught in between. This film dramatically' portrays the role of  Home and School Association in  providing a middle-ground where  parents and teachers can meet  to resolve .differences and come  to a greater understanding of  their mutual role; Focus of the  film is a conflict that arises in a  .community when an idealistic  teacher chooses to resign her position rather than condone cheating in the classroom.

Council decided  to  moving away from Gibsons  solutely no -firm decision as to  the desirability of such a move,  still less as to when it might  take place.  This is not to say that such a  move will not take place at some  future date. It has simply not  been decided, and the board  would be most interested to re-  ' ceive written representations  tions on the Sechelt peninsula  from any : persons or organiza-  concerning this possibility.  Accordingly we have directed  a copy of this letter to the Chamber of Commerce at Sechelt and  , Pender Harbor and to the press  " for information. Yours truly,  Peter C. Wilson, secretary-treasurer.  On a motion by Trustee W. P.  Malcolm the board decided to  see what could be done about the  Council definite  with its views  ' Gibsons municipal council  strongly objects to any move by  the school board to locate the  board's office in Sechelt.  ��� Councillor      Sam      Fladager  .brought to the attention of 'council Tuesday night the rumors he  had heard, which, he said, were  ��� to the effect that the school board  was seriously considering such  a ".move.

He intends to utilize the  floor area beneath the present  store.  Drainage from the land to be  occupied by the new 30 suite  apartment block was discussed  by council resulting in council  deciding to work along with the  builders of the block to see what  can be done.  The old.-dam at Gibsons water  source known as the Jap dam  was reported to council by the  Martin Dayton engineering firm  as being the most likely and  cheapest method of increasing  Gibsons water supply. It was estimated if this dam was increased, about 1,000,000 gallons of water'could be contained in a better reservoir than one suggested  on Langdale Creek.

Letters were read  including one from the PTA asking that this be done. Discussion  revealed that there were not sufficient children to form a class  but with 18 being available it  was thought something might be  done. Education department regulations call for 25 to form a  grant-sharing cost.  Trustees Mrs. R. L. Jackson  and Mrs. Celia Fisher asked for  a report from the district superintendent on the new method of  writing .now'being used in some  grades.. On the subject of seeking  special professional counsellors  for the period September to January to advise scholars on the direction they should take in the  new .curriculum the matter was  tabled -when , Trustee Mrs. M.  Ball suggested that there would  be .a teacher-seminar on this subject coming up and that it would  be better to await the results of  that. .The problem was tabled.  . On-the^subject of the new style  of writing Trustee Leo Johnson  was of the opinion he would not  like' to see a change in the upper grades. He thought it might  be best to keep it to the lower  grades first then advance it as  the grades move up. Trustee Mrs.  Volen.was of the opinion that an  improvement had been shown by  some .; after about a two week  spell -at' it.  ���It was'decided as there was no  hurry for a-closure date banning  the use of the School Hall by  the,public for, specific events was  held" off for'/the time being.

Gone will be the university and general programs.  Gone will foe credits and majors.  Gone, too, educators hope, will  be the reluctance of many parents' and students to accept a  non-academic program as worthwhile and desirable in 'itself, y  In line with the. proposals of  the Chant Royal Commission on  Education, the department- of  education's revision of the secondary school curriculum has,  now reached the Grade XI level.  Aside from new courses to be introduced, the main changes at  this 'level is the streaming of students at the conclusion of the junior secondary school at Grade X.  Instead of following either the  university program with its emphasis on mathematics, sciences,  languages and . University; Entrance or the general program,  which for many pupils was a  hodge-podge of unrelated courses, students will now be able to  move into any one of four or five  programs, each with its own  course content and each with its  own Hoal.  At the end of their Grade X  year, students will now select  one program for which they must  qualify. Their choice of program  will' in part be determined by  their goal at the end of Grade  XII. If,, for example, a student  wishes; to enter a university or  institute of technology, he will  choose they academic program.  Boys and girls whose interests  lie in the business or commercial  world will select the commercial  program.' For boys :who hope to  proceed to apprenticeship, vocational schools, or to direct employment there is the industrial  program; For girls who are interested in sewing, . cooking,  household management, and in  occupations using" these skills  there is the community .services  program. Some larger school districts will offer a visual and performing arts program.  All students, regardless of the  -program they have chosen will  take certain common' general education courses in English, social,  studies and physical and health  education. In addition there will  be certain other general courses  constant to a particular program. In the academic program  there are mathematics, sciences  (Continued on Page 8)  the National "Automobile club in  San Francisco: Mr. Jorgenson re  ports there is a steadily increasing demand for information about  the area. w  CAR SIDESWIPED  Two, hundred dollars damage  was caused to ah automobile  owned by J.

MOVING DAY  Excitement reaches a long awaited climax at Gibsons Elementary School this week, as Operation Snow Goose, an orderly migration to the new school, is  completed. Two classes will  move to their new rooms each  day, shift classes will come to-  an end and Mr. Ferrari and the  exiled Grade 7s will, return from  Sechelt.

President Osborne has called  an executive meeting for Wednesday evening March 16 for discussion of business of the area  in connection with the Gibsons  and Pender ^ Harbour Chambers  of Commerce and the provincial  chamber meeting. R. L. Jackson  and' Norman Watson will team  together to work on a togetherness program with other chambers.  President Osborne in commenting on the year's activities mentioned the opening of the hospital, the liquor store, improved  ferry service, work on the proposed breakwater, work on improving things between motorists  and school buses, the need for  improvement in spawning conditions on the Tzsoonie River, revision of chamber by-laws and  other  items.  .

Fielding, representing the Pender Har-,  bour chamber.  Representatives from Gibsons  and Pender Harbour stressed the  need for an interchange of ideas  and operation between the three  chambers in this area. Joint action would result in a stronger  voice from  the  Sunshine  Coast.

Those mixed-up politicians  All political parties die at last of swallowing their own-lies said  John Ariburthnot, a famous .Scottish physician and political pamphleteer. Dr. Aributhnot died many, many years ago but if he had observed the provincial minister of municipal affairs announce to the  world that British Columbia municipalities never had it so good and  then listened to Premier Bennett refute that argument by offering  them an increased grant to help them out, he would have chortled  considerably. #  But one wonders what the famed doctor would have said if he had  observed a former CCF stalwart, now a Liberal, endeavouring to  strip his government of Crown Corporations while the B.C. premier  who steadfastly defends free enterprise is tending towards Crown  Corporations. V - ...y '..y ::yy       ������ ���'- y  Premier Thatcher of Saskatchewan who was'a former GCFer, in  his budget speech of two weeks ago, stated that it was the philosophy  of his Liberal government to encourage the industrial and commercial development of Saskatchewan by private enterprise. He is going  to keep a close watoh oh Saskatchewan's many governmental enterprises. They will operate from now on .without their previous monopolies. Those which he thinks are better in the hands of private enterprise will be placed on the market and there is quite a list of enterprises which he feels should be private enterprise.  Some politicians are like quicksilver. When you put your finger  on them you find nothing there. Perhaps the dynamics of quicksilver  deserves serious study.  Hospitalization costs  "There are no doubt people living along the Sunshine Coast acquainted with the early days of the Saskatchewan government's hospitalization under a province-wide scheme. The scheme became a fee-  paying procedure which while not heavy, amounted to $5 a year for  individuals with a $30 maximum per family.  The 1948 (second year) expenditure under the hospitalization  scheme totalled $9,087,984. The population of the province for that  year was 832,688. Administration expenses were $572,114. In 1964 with  a population of 936,000'expenditures for hospitalization totalled $48,-  091,656 including administration expenses of $986,000.  It would be correct to say that as hospitalization experience proceeded services were added as required, thus accounting for some of  the increase between the two years mentioned but based on the expenditures of the second year of operation expenditures by 1964 showed  an increase of more than five times.  There is no intention here of complaining about the increase.  What is intended is an effort to reveal the mushrooming costs which  have occurred. With a one-eighth increase in population hospitalization costs have grown more than five times. The hospital tax has  grown in reasonable proportion to the overall cost of hospitalization.  If one desires a constant barometer as regards the general price  ���rise the wholesale price index in 1948 was 193.4. Today it is 246.0, or  53.4 points higher, which means that hospitalization, while doing excellent work in .looking'after the health'of the population, does absorb a considerable amount of money. It is probably worth it but  there is no such thing as cheap hospitalization.  We haven't changed a bit!  Has a period of 100 years made any difference to us in the general scheme of what is. known as living? One hundred years ago the  American Civil War was approaching its final scenes. John Wilkes  Booth fatally shot Abraham Lincoln, president of the United States  and an attempt was made to assassinate Mr. Seward, the secretary  of state. In Europe, Austria and Prussia began quarrelling over  Schlewig-Holstein. Trouble arose between Mexico and the United  States. Bismark plotted against Austria and war appeared inevitable.  As a result of the American Civil War congress placed a tax on all  due notes of state banks to drive the notes of state banks out of circulation and thus establish National banks more firmly. Japan was on  the borderline of considerable ferment.  The difference today rests in jet planes, rockets, devastating  types of bombs and a fine-tooth searching out of news at diplomatic  level by our various communications media. Dissemination of news  100 years ago was much slower. Living was at a slower pace. The  alarms came more slowly. However they did not result in the use of  tranquilizer pills now generally available to the public. They might  have had something in their favor 100 years ago.  You needn't be ��� an avid out-  doorsman.to find out quite early  in life just how much the weather affects^you ��� muggy days  are notorious for making school  children misbehave.  It's also been found that more  things seem to go wrong for us,  and ' we : have more 'off days,'  when the barometric pressure is  low and falling. These are; the  days, foggy and depressing, when  people are edgy and irritable.  The exact reason for these  changes in our mental attitude  and even in the tissues of our  bodies is not known. However,  we do know that the water content of the tissues varies somewhat with barometric pressure  changes.

To expand present telephone  service the Government Telegraphs has called, tenders for  placing poles for the new Gibsons to Pender Harbour line.

MiDute message  "������without shedding of blood  is  no  remission."  Hebrews  9:22  February past, thoughts will  soon turn to Easter,. a remem-  berance that has had no recent  beginning.  In  man's  early  days,   it  was  a   lamb" for   an   individual,   like  Abel being accepted of God, bj,���  -sacrificing a lamb, yet Cain was ,  rejected, for offering of his own  labors.  A lamb for a household, was  the means of Israel's - deliverance from Egypt, as the Lord  was pleased to pass over wherever the blood was applied, but  death visited elsewhere.  Today, a lamb for the world,  should be the meaning of Easter.  John proclaimed, as he saw  Jesus coming, "Behold the  Lamb of God, which taketh away  the sin of the world.  "iThrough this lamb only, may  we have deliverance from the  bondage;of sin and death, if we  will-simply apply the blood of  Christ to our hearts in faith by  trusting in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This may be, reflect-  . ed in jittery feelings, mental degression, and slowed mental effo-  ciency. ^        -   .  _ It'has been shown that mental  workers, do their best work during the clear days of late winter, early spring, and fall,. and  their worst on muggy summer  days.  Crimes also seem to be influenced by the weather. The bot  and humid summertime,1 when  men's tempers tend to be short,  seems to be the time when murders are most often committed.  Scientists at Villanova University  report that July and August,' the  hottest months, are the worst for  violent crimes. Interesting, hot-  weather countries have a higher  crime rate than do the temperate countries of the north.  In the case of illness, the weather is often the straw that"'  breaks the camel's back.. People  on the verge of being sick surrender to illness when a sharp  weather shift helps deplete their  strength. For many already il,  a ..violent change in the weather  may increase the severity of their  cases.  By itself, weather rarely brings'  on-a disease ��� or even a common cold. But pronounced drops  .or rises in temperature, humidity and barometric pressure alter the body functions just enough  to throw them off balance. ���  In the cases of serious diseases  there doesn't seem to be' anything- that, can be done about the  weather's influence. Studying 250  cases,of coronary occlusion, Philadelphia climatologists learned  that three out of five of these  heart attacks occurred when a  cold front appeared abruptly, and  both temperature and barometer  dropped sharply.  Similar findings were arrived  at by Dallas doctors, who reported that most of the heart patients  who had an attack during a rapid onset of cold (or warm) weather, were either asleep or rest- .  ing at the time. Physical exertion, therefore, was not involved.  The doctors concluded that it was  the strain of adapting to the  change of weatherP that was a  major factor in causing the heart  'attacks.'"  ] : ������  The ideal temperature for one's  health ��� as" well as for thinking .  and carrying out one's daily  chores ��� is 64 degrees F; Why  do so many people, then, find it  so difficult to work in the spring,  when, the y temperature hovers  around the. 64 degree mark? The  phenomenon of 'spring fever' is  explained by doctors as the body's shifting of its circulation to  adapt to the warmer weather out-  .<nnmmiHnummumn��tUu;aHumuimwininn����ii'��iuuiu��iR)>  side.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  Before parliament can start a  new session ~ several important  things must be done.- It must pass  the Canada Pension Plan. It must  finalize a National Labor Code.  And it, must give its stamp of  approval to the opting out arrangements with the provinces.  The latter is the agreement  whereby any province can go it  alone on certain .programs which  though launched by Ottawa, normally fall within provincial jurisdiction.  Passage of these key items  will take several weeks. But  pass they will. The NDP cannot  fail to support the Pension Plan  and the National Labor Code.  Other opposition members in-'  ' eluding the Social Credit M,P.'s  will back the government on opting out. So a working majority  seems to be assured in each case. ���  An all-party committee of the  commons and the senate has proposed certain changes to the Canada Pension Plan. The Labor  Code has also been altered somewhat. The government is accepting these alterations: And 'in this  atmosphere of give various other  bills should also become law before Easter rolls around.  Next comes the Speech from  the Throne. Outlining the government's intentions it will mark  " the beginning of another year; a  year, which , promises to be as  eventful, if not as acrimonious,'  as the last.  Changes in the Bank Act will  --come up (with the implications  for Mr. Bennett's Bank of B.C.).  A Canada Development corpora-  . tion may be introduced. Aimed  at increasing Canadian ownership in our major industries it  should provide more funds for  development in this country.  " Meanwhile the railways have  to- be recognized. This, among  other things means the abolition  of subsidies. And a budget will  be brought down with all its im  plications for the future.  And what about an 'election?  In my opinion, a< serious test of  confidence is unlikely to be put  to a vote before .Easter. Thereafter much will depend upon the  government's new program. If  it is forward looking enough and  if it comes up with tangible answers to our more pressing constitutional and economic problems,  M.P.'s can relax a bit. Prime  Minister Pearson's present government, in other words, will remain in power for some time to  come.  Legislative views  EVER HAPPEN TO YOU?  v  READY  MIX  CONCRETE  P & W DEVELOPMENT CO.  Ph.   886-9857 ���  Gibsons  (By W~��*' GARGRAVE, M.L.A..  Mackenzie Consituency.)  Rarely have I seen a government change its policy under criticism as we have seen during  the Throne and budget debates  here in Victoria.  The government has been under heavy attack because of its  niggardly attitude towards municipalities. The minister of municipalities, Mr. Dan Campbell, has  been- criticised for describing the  pleas for more financial aid to  municipalities as hot air.  After continual hammering Mr.  W. A. C. Bennett, minister of finance, announced that-the grant  system for municipalities has  now been increased. The increases for' the first 3,500 people are  now $20 up from $16; the next  4,500 people are now $16 up from  $12; the next 42,000 people are'  now $12 up from $8 and over 50,-  000 people the per capita grants  will be $10.50 up from $6.50. .  He also announced more rate  cuts in electricity rates. We have  not yet got exact figures on this  but we are told they will be substantial. The nationalization of the  B.C. Electric has been successful as far as the consumer is  concerned.'  Many members, including Mr.  Dave Barrett (NDP, Dewdney)  and Donald Smith (SC, Victoria)  urged that old age pensioners receive free bus passes. The government resisted advising ;the  B.C. Hydro and Power Authority  to issue these passes. At first'  the government agreed to give  old age pensioners receiving the  supplementary .allowance one additional dollar per month.  -The criticism concerning bus  passes began to increase, and  then the minister of finance announced, out of the blue, without  apparently consulting his cabinet, that the supplementary allow-  AS OF APRIL 1, 1965  The following Service Stations will  operate only on a cash or credit card  basis on purchases of gasoline, oil  and minor repairs, etc.  MUR^  Gibsons Aiito Chevron  BILL  WRIGHT  .  * .   . ���������'/. p���  ���     -  Sunnycrest Motors, Imp.

Alan Macfarlane (L, Oak Bay)  accused the government of trying to starve Mr. G. E. P.' Jones  out of his job as chairman bf the  purchasing commission. He was  recently acquitted by the court  of receiving illegal benefits as a  public official. Mr. Jones, as the  purchasing commissioner for the  province, can only be removed  by an address from the legislature.  Mr. Jones is one of the legislature's few direct servants. They  are a very select group: of civil  servants who can only be hired  or fired by the "legislature itself.  They include the comptroller-  general or chief auditor' of the  province, the clerk of the house,  and the sergeant-at-arms of1 the  legislature.  Under persistent questioning  during the purchasing commis--  sion estimates, the minister of  finance withdrew the spending  vote that provides the $338,000  needed to operate the purchasing  commission for the next year,  including Mr. Jones' salary.; I  suspect the government is now  going to remove Mr. Jones by a  special bill later in the session.  Editor: Will you help in this  campaign by printing this letter?  Preliminary statement to special committee of the senate  and house ; of commons on Canada Pension Plan, Jan. 15.  The -Senior Women's Committee for Pension Increase has  studied the Canada Pension Plan  very carefully and find that the  bill is proposing to build up a  plan to provide for retirement  for people 10, 15 or 25 years from  now and. totally neglecting the  people of today. The economic  system of the world has changed rapidly even-in Canada in  the last 25 years and, of course,  no one knows how the people  will live in the  future.  We are told that the past is  gone, and there is no future,  there is only today. When tomorrow gets here, it is today.  Our committee is concerned  with the retired people of today.  We all know no one can live on  $75 a month a s our people should  live. The senate committee on  aging . gave us ' the information  that 56% of the women and 40%  of the men in Canada between  the ages of 70 - 79 are trying to  exist 'on less than $1,000 a. year;  in the 80 age the percentage is  higher.  Democracy is government by  the people for the people and  we the people are informing. the  ;government that, adequate provision must be made for those  65 years and oyer.  You  know,   of   course   of.  the  petition; our committee sent out  across Canada from the Yukon  to Newfoundland and it would  give the government something  to think' about if the members  could read the thousands of letters; and signatures that come in.

We  hope that the Bank Act, due for revision by Parliament soon, will in fact remove  this ceiling and also enable the chartered banks to take mortgage security���now  prohibited by law but recommended in the Royal Commission report.  To Our Borrowing Customers  To remove any uncertainty in the minds of our borrowing customers, the Royal  Bank wishes to assure them that removal ofthe ceiling will not of itself affect  our prevailing loan rates. The general level of these rates is determined by  monetary policy as formulated by the Government and implemented through  the Bank of Canada. However, the changes proposed by the Royal Commission  will, if enacted in law, enable the chartered banks to enter lending fields  hitherto closed to them. Thus the banks will be in a position to make, at  reasonable rates, loans of a term and risk which, under present regulations are  available only at higher rates outside the banking system. /  We look forward to the removal of the ceiling as a means by which we can  ���serve a wider public, not as a means by which we can charge higher interest  rates on our present types of loans.  To Our Savings Customers  Removal of the ceiling, by permitting us to make new types of loans, will enable  us to introduce a new type of savings account on which a higher rate of  interest will be paid.  Thus, removal of the 6% ceiling���  1. Will benefit the owners of 12,000,000 savings accounts with the chartered banks.  2. Will not hurt existing borrowers.  3. Will help those now forced to borrow outside the  s        chartered banking system, by providing them with  loans at more reasonable rates. MOORE.

M  d-tiiy  about  river  When Deputy Provincial Sec-  ? retary L. J. Wallace was chosen  as general chairman of the Canadian Confederation Centennial  committee of British Columbia,  few-people were surprised ��� he  is'.'already identified as Mr. Fixit  in government circles!  "Lawrie" - is known in every  part of the province for his successful supervision of British  Columbia's 1958 centennial' celebrations, for his chairmanship of  the Barkerville Restoration and  Advisory committee and as president of the Forte Steele Restoration foundation;���������'���   ���  ������',*. * ���:#  Somehow he's' also found time  to serve on boards, directorships  and as a member of 13 other  community and provincial organizations devoted to making his  home town and,his province a  more enjoyable place to live.  Born in Victoria in 1913, he  was educated there, going on  from Victoria Normal to obtain a B.A. at University of British Columibia: and his MJEd. at  University of Washington. He  was married in 1942 and has  three daughters.  He taught at Alberni,. Duncan  and Victoria both before and after World War II, in which he  served in the R.C.N.V.R. and  emerged as a lieutenant-commander after convoy experience,  instructional periods in navigation, and time spent as commanding officer of Officers' Training  Ship, Halifax.  ��� * *., *  . He became director of the community programs branch and adult education of the provincial  department of education for  British Columlbia in 1953. He was  appointed deputy provincial secretary in 1959.  He is a.member of the senate  of the University of Victoria;  member of the council, Canadian  Association for. Adult Education;  a director of the Vancouver International Festival, the British  Columbia Sports foundation, the  Royal Jubilee Hospital ,the advisory board of the Salvation  Army, the Narcotic Adkhction  foundation of British Columbia,  the j Alcoholism foundation of  British Columlbia, and the British  Columbia Safety council.  His current ambition is to make  British Columbia outshine all  other parts of Canada in celebrating our 100th birthday. No  one who knows him doubts it  will happen that way.  The average life of a Canadian  $1, $2 or $5 bill is only one year;  larger denominations last longer, and a $100 bill lasts 15 years.  in/ ifr^iMsin^rtM*  FIT AND FLARE ��� fashion's  most important theme in a princess with curve collar or jewel  neckline.

The Mackenzie River flows for  1,080 miles through northern w_i-  derness, and a CBC film crew  travelled the entire route from  Hay River to Tuktoyaktuk on the  Beaufort Sea to take footage'for  the Canada 98 hour long documentary about the waterway.  This program, to be shown on  the CBC-TV English network  Monday, March 8 from 9 to 10  p.m., is being sponsored by the  Canadian Life Insurance Officers Association. One further  program remains in the series  tor the current season, and will  be shown some time in April .  The tug Arctic Lady was the  means of trarfsport as the six  member CBC crew took 30 days  last September to travel the full  length of the river, and record on  film the.topography, some of the  history and present day life along  this magnificent river. The crew  had to go by air to Hay River to  start their long journey, and  complete it during the relatively short period that the liver is  entirely free of ice.  To make matters more interesting, seven nations were represented among the tug's crew and  the camera crew. The skipper  was a Finn, the engineer a full  blooded Indian and the. cook was  a- Scotsman.  Script Writer for the documentary is Scott Youngs well-known  author, columnist and reporter  with the Toronto Globe and Mail.  Young wrote a series of columns  which appeared in his newspaper  during a trip he took along the  river to compile information for  the script.  According  to   the   Canada   98  series host, J. Frank Willis, there  are only about 10,000 people living along the river now. But author  Hugh  McLennan   predicted  in 1961 that by. "2061 there will  be three million people living in  the Mackenzie Valley,  and there  will be hospitals, schools, and at  least   two   universities   on   sites  overlooking the cold, clean river.  The  CBC  film   contains interviews  with  some  of  the people  who live along the river, including   Father   Antoine   Biname,   a  priest  who   during   the   summer  months is captain of-a small tug  boat at the Imperial Oil refinery,-  at Norman Wells, in addition to  his year-round duties as a man  of the cloth.  There are good schools  along  the   Mackenzie,   and   there   are  modern communities like Inuvik.  There   are   also  fishermen,   and  trappers,    and   great   contrasts  between the old and the new. For  some people, things have changed, "but for many life  goes  on  very much the same today as it  did in 1789 when Alexander Mackenzie first explored  the  river.  Many of the inhabitants of the  territory  are Indians and Eskimos, some of them well educated in the schools and technical  institutions in the territory/Finding jobs that will put to use.then-  education is sometimes a major  problem for them, however. This  situation is examined in theyfilin.  Development of the natural resources along the Mackenzie has  taken place to some degree in  recent years. In addition to the  oil, there is coal, silver, uranium,  sulphur, salt, iron, zinc, lead,  tungsten and nickel in the area.  At the present time there'is no  way to get these materials out  in a way that is' sufficiently economical to make it worthwhile.  Part of the problem is ice that  chokes the river for much of the  year, and the permafrost ��� everlasting ice a few feet below the  surface of the ground, all year  round.  Grants made  Provincial Government contributions, to total.$42,288 and $30,-  335 respectively, have been - approved for Centennial programming "and celebrations in Burnaby and Surrey.

Mr. W. A. C. Bennett, who is  chairman of the Ferry Authority,,  was warned by Tony Gargrave  (N.D.P., Mackenzie) that the new  construction at Powell River during the next three years would  place intolerable strain on the  ferry services across Jervis Inlet and Howe Sound.  Mr. Gargrave told Mr. Bennett  that 900 construction workers  would be employed at Powell River during the expansion of a  pulp mill there. Many of the  workmen would "be Monday-to-  Friday construction employees  who would place a heavy burden  on the ferries during the weekends.  He also1 asked for interlocking  schedules on the Texada Island  ferry, and the Powell River Langdale service, so that there would  be   as   little   delay   as   possible  when travellers were proceeding  to and from Vancouver or to and  ' from Vancouver Island via the  Horseshoe Bay-Naniamo service.-  To fully integrate these various  services to minimize waiting time  while waiting for connections is  difficult, Mr.-Gargrave said, but  careful planning could minimize  this, he said.  Mr. Gargrave also asked for a  late night service across. Howe  Sound to allow local residents to  proceed to and from Vancouver  after attending business, theatrical or sports events in that city.  "People do not go to bed at 9  p.m. on the Sechelt Peninsula,  and political meetings often go  beyond that time," Mr. Gargrave  said with a smile.  'Since Mr. Bennett also reports  rto the legislature on behalf of the  B.C. Hydro Power Authority, Mr.  Gargrave urged the government  to place electrical generating facilities on Bella Bella Island in  the north end of the Mackenzie  riding.  ICY stamp issued  Hon". Rene Tremiblay, postmaster general,*- has announced that  a special stamp honoring I.C.Y.  ��� International Co-operation  Year ��� will be issued by the  post office department on March  3.  Mr. Tremiblay said that the  stamp forms' one part of Canada's  contribution to the United Nations' sponsorship of 1965 as a  year ���' of international' co-operation. Its aim is to foster greater  interest in United Nations efforts  in the field of international good  will, in order to achieve a deeper  and wider understanding of the  aims, purposes and achievements  of the United Nations family of  organizations. Canada, as a mem  ber of the United Nations Committee for I.C.Y., heartily endorses-this aim, and the Year's  theme: Peace and Progress  through Co-operation.  Three diagonally interlocked  links, with Canada's maple leaf  in the centre are featured and  symbolize Canada's role as a link  in the world-wide chain of na.-  tions. The upper r_ght corner  shows the I.C.Y. symbol: the United Nations wreath encircling  two firmly clasped hands. The  words International Co-operation  Year i9te5' ah'd " L'Ahnee '"de la  Cooperation Internationale '1965  appear at the top and bottom bor-  ;  ders. ���;��� y':.;-; .yy  The stamp will be printed by  the intaglio proceiss, a method  designed to delineate' detail and  value with utmost precision. Of,  large size, the stamp will be dark  green. The Canadian Bank Note  Company executed and printed  the stamp.  ���'���... MORE:. TURKEY EATEN.

The industrial program  requires one year of applied mathematics and one year of general business.  After a student has selected a  program, he will now direct his  studies along one ob. three glides  called specialties. In the .industrial program, for example; *<hei  will follow, according to.' his in-,  ���terests and abilities, either a' construction, or a mechanics or an  electricity and electronics specialty. The academic program  student may select either an  arts, or a science, or a technical  specialty. For the commercial  program ^students there are secretarial, clerical or accountancy  specialti.es, while for those ' on  the community services program  there are specialties in food, textiles and home and industrial-  services. Each student will complete six courses in' his specialty  in Grade XI andXII.  By means of the various  streams that have been outlined,  it is hoped that all students who  complete   the   senior   secondary  8       Coast News, March 4, 1965.  dustrial to/ academic.  All these changes are occurring, not for the sake of change  alone but because the authorities  and educators feel that they will  greatly improve the education of  our young people. To ensure that  they are understood in the- secondary schools' in our district,  students concerned will be given  full information by counsellors,  teachers and principals. At the  same time there will be meetings  of parents arranged in" order* to  discuss the new curriculum as it  applies to- a particular school.  When such meetings are announced all who are' interested are invited to attend.  Go-op dividend  Elphinstone Co-operative association's annual meeting on.  Thursday night bf last week in  Gibsons Legion hall elected Fred  Holland, retiring president and  Eric Inglis to the board of directors. The board will meet sometime in mid-March to elect ah  executive. 1  The meeting also decided a two  percent dividend would be paid,  this year. It was also announced  that Bob Bealby, manager of the  store will be leaving the area by-  March 6. In the meantime Co-op  officials are interviewing prospects to fill his post.  (1020). S.

'.'"'  first of all, a general education  that will provide a sound foundation for^ future training and for  worthy citizenship in a democratic society. Secondly it is hoped  that all will possess some definite but not too limited marketable skills and knowledge which  will enable them to undertake  successfully university training,  specific vocational training; or, if  necessary, direct employment.  There are among others, two  areas of these changes, that students and their parents should  he aware of at the outset. The  first is that the student at the  end of Grade X miist be qualified to enter at least one of the  senior secondary progsams.  Just because lie does not wish  to put forth the effort to ensure  success on the academic program  or because his achievement suggests that he should not .follow  such a- program, does not mean  that 'he automatically falls -into  one of the other programs. Each  has its own entrance requirements to be met. The work of the  junior ; secondary , grades,, therefore, takes on new importance  and calls more Emphatically titan  ever for good attitudes and sustained endeavour to the limit of  the pupil's ability.  The second point to note is that  Whereas under the former organization it was relatively easy for  a student to change from the university program to "the general  program without, loss of time,  under the new this is not so.  There is likely to be loss of time  in changing from any program to  another, whether it be from academic to industrial j or from in-  Ardent singers  Six girls who like to sing were  praised - at last Friday night's  Howe Sound United Church session meeting, taking in the Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Wilson  Creek churches.  The six girls were .reported by  Deaconness H. Campbell to be  quite ardent, meeting once a  week for practice. They help the  singing at family services which  are attended by Sunday School  children and parents. Miss Campbell said that some day it is  hoped surplices can be obtained  for the girls and help start a  choir.
