When John Antle that great hu:  manitarian i of early "days along  this coast had retired from active service in the Mission he had  founded he outfitted his boat Reverie for a deepwater voyage. In  reply to a question as to where  he and the companions he took  were bound he said "Anywhere  that it is warm." He had five  more good years of rest and it  will be long before he is forgotten, being one of whom it can be  truly  said:    :  "For their work continueth  Broad and deep continueth  Greater than their knowing."  Some of our old friends went  south this year and avoided that  bitter spell in mid-month when I  read a temperature of 2 degrees  with, a north wind blowing strongly.

So it adds up to the  probability of seeing it through at  Gibsons, B.C. and waiting for the  crocuses as best we may, not  being tender hot house plants  ourselves.  ;; A hearing on the rezoning of a  part of the bay area covering an  application for construction of a  * marina at the base of Georgia  v View bordering on the flat-area  ' will be.held in the Municipal Hall  / of Gibsons starting at 8:30 p.m.  i on the evening of Tuesday, Jan.  ���I 19   following. a   regular   council  meeting! It. is expected that those  opposing the application for the  marina will be out in strength  to present their views.  At Tuesday night's council  .' meeting a delegation of four  learned of council's position and  where they stood in relation to  itr Chairman A. E. Ritchey explained that council could not  do other than -what it had done.  ��� An; application - for -. a hotel  and  "''marina'' wasvfeceiyed from Ernest Cartwright and  council had  to\act on it.  The main part of the new rezoning bylaw covering the marina area involved reads as follows:/ ���'������ ���'.;!   ... .'y. , -.    y  Whereas a request has been received that amendment be made  to the Zoning Bylaw to permit  the operation of a Marina in an  area at present zoned under  Classification "A" ��� Residential  District,        . -���..-.    .    '-'���' -.  Now therefore the council- of  the Corporation of the,Village of  Gibsons Landing in open meeting assembled, hereby- enacts:  Bylaw No. ,90, Zoning Bylaw  1951 is amended as follows:  Section 2, Definitions. After  subpara headed "Non-conforming  use," insert new sub para, "Marina shall mean any establishment  or facilities for ;the anchoring,  'mooring -and storage of/ boats,  vessels, and float equipped aircraft of all kinds, and incidental  facilities."  Soames pt. meet  Soames Point Centennial committee has called a meeting for  Friday Jan. 8 at the home of Mr.  -and Mrs. E. D. Hoops of Trant  road, Soames Point. This meeting which will start at 7 p.m. with  Tom Ruben of the recreation  branch present has been arranged so that all residents of the  Soames Point area will have a  chance to hear Mr. Ruben explain the various angles of the  Centennial project for small  areas.  Bylaw No. 166, to permit rezoning of the Zoning Bylaw No.  90 was given first reading. The  original bylaw No. 90 had only  one lot. in the area, the old Black  ' and White store, now closed. The  bylaw under the residential use  clauses allow for the building of  a hotel but does not consider  marinas. The amendment which  Bylaw 166 covers would, if passed, allow construction of a marina.  Delegation members learned  that council had no power in the-  granting of a liquor license for  the hotel nor any power covering  a proposal to have a breakwater  out to the shoal beacon.' Councillor Sam Fladager said he was.  .opposed to a marina :wJiereJVl��._.;  Cartwright proposed to build one: w  Letters from residents in the  bay���...area who are opposed to _  the hotel-marina idea were' put  before council which decided  that they should be held to be  presented to -the hearing on Jan..  19 'on changing 'the zoning requirements so the hotel-marina  could be built there.  Victor Eckstein was granted a  permit for a $10,000 home in  the Headlands area. It will be  an imported house from Vancouver to be placed on a basement  to be constructed.  Council learned from Councillor Norman MacKay, roads commissioner that there were few  complaints about village roads  and the snowfall effeots on traffic.  Councillors when discussing the  final revision of the Trades License bylaw faced a problem in  taxing supermarkets which sold  many items which were not  strictly regarded as foods. Debate resulted in the deletion of a  supermarket clause with a scale  of lines of goods to be taxed replacing the supermarket licence,  thus giving council more control  over such stores.  Christmas baby  A Christmas present in the  form of a seven pound six ounce  baby girl joined the Steven Holland family at 6 a.m. Christmas  morning in St. Mary's Hospital.  Both mother and baby are in excellent shape. The Hollands live  on Henry Road and the baby has  been named Donna Marlene.  Who will be next year's chairman is up to the trustees to decide at the Jan. 11 meeting.  A 24 hour surveillance of  school properties by staggering  the hours of work of maintenance  staffs is under consideration by  Sechelt District School Board.  Considerations such as less property damage, lower costs and  other advantages were discussed  briefly at Monday night's meeting of the board in its Gibsons  board room.  By staggering the staff in  hours of work board members  felt it could be arranged that  in the larger schools there would  always be one member of the  staff on the job and could make  it his business to check remote  areas of buildings at intervals.  The matter was left over for a  meeting when the 1964 board  will have taken over.  Chairman Mrs. M. Ball at  Monday night's meeting in reviewing' the /work of the board  during 1964 said the members  had,been most, patient and understanding in .a year that had presented many difficulties.

C nvent on  of teachers  Teachers from Powell River,  Squamish, Alert Bay and Sechelt  School Districts will take part in  an annual convention in Gibsons  on March 12 and 13.  This information came to light  when a letter to the school board  from the Sechelt Teachers association sought release of children  from school on the Friday, March  12 so teachers can attend the  convention.  This year's convention will be  sponsored by the Sechelt Teachers' association of which Mr. J.  Ferrari, principal of Sechelt Elementary school is president. Convention chairman will be Mr. D.  L. Montgomery, vice-principal of  Elphinstone Secondary school.  u���uuirauttasiu��U!U\v3!r.iinmnnv;inuunuHmnMmnmiH  Roadblocks!  A roadblock will continue over  the New Year holiday just in  case, celebrants get too enthusiastic, ROMP at Gibsons and Sechelt report. So far the serious  accident toll has-been negligible.  One car rolled over while moving slowly on the Gibsons side of  Granthams. bridge but no one  was hurt. Numerous minor accidents have been noted with damage being mostly under the $100  mark.  Elementary school mood festive  36.4 inches  Snowfall up to 8 a.m. Wednesday totalled 36.4 inches,  Dick Kennett, weatherman  reports.  Observations made during the  stormy weather the area has experienced, revealed the RCMP  doing a yeoman task of warning traffic when trailer trucks  were approaching danger spots  so that the passenger cars could  draw to one side and allow the  trailer trucks to go by,  It was also noted that the roads  department with an eye to keeping down skids on curves, banked the snow in the vicinity into  a wall at curves to keep cars  k   from skidding off the road.  During the final days of the  term the pupils of Gibsons Elementary school were busy with  something, that was a pleasant  change from routine schoolwork.  On Friday, Dec. 18, Grades 1  to 6 including both shift classes  , assembled in the School Hall for  /their own special Christmas entertainment. Mrs. Neilson's all  boy Grade 1 class sang a hearty  counting song as well as their  Christmas song for which they  had made wreaths of cedar. Miss  MacLean's class pantomimed  and sang a folk song; Mrs. Armour's and Miss Sturdy's classes sang traditional and seasonal  songs that put every member of  the audience into a festive mood.  A Christmas group recitation by  Mrs.  MacKenzie's  pupils  and a  play by Mrs. Skidmore's class in  which a king finds out how the  apple gets inside the dumpling  were followed by a hearty presentation of a Robin Hood adventure by Mrs. MacMillen's Grade  5's. Mr. Ayris' class choir caught  the audience's fancy with the  Drum Song among others. Mrs.  Sleep's Grade 6's presented a  Christmas play in the manner of  a miracle play assisted by a class  choir. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their assembly even though  the preparation had grown tiresome in the last few days of rehearsal.  On Monday, Dec. 21, Miss Sara  Holman and her kindergarten  classes presented a series of  group recitations to the parents  and their guests. The pupils dug  for diamonds, trimmed the tree,  welcomed Saint Nick with gusto  and aplomb that older pupils  might envy. Nothing but admiration was expressed for Miss Holman for the expert way in which  she handled the youngsters in  their first program.  On   the   last   day   of   school  through the kindness of the PTA  and   Mr.   Potter   of   Elphinstone  High  School^  everyone  including  the kindergarten saw Walt Disney's Bear Country and Stormy  the Thorougfibred, two very appealing  animal films.  The  PTA  paid  the   rental  on  these   films  and Mr. Potter loaned projector  and wide  screen  from the  high  school to replace the inadequate  school  equipment for  the   occasion.

The morning after!  f  The approach to a New Year among civilized people contains  more meanings than there are facets on a diamond yet the new dawn  comes in like an ever-rolling stream taking no notice whatever of  the puny efforts made by people to observe a moment on a clock.  Some people must howl (it's their night) and others take -a diametric view and prefer to be snoring at that moment just as they  have done for the last 365 nights.  There are many customs observed and the Hogmanay of Scotland  is perhaps the most distinctive. At one time fuel was a popular gift-  and in some areas peat was put on the fire by arriving guests and  in others a lump of coal along with the Doric greeting "Lang may  your lum reek." In Scotland as in many other places, fuel for the  stomach has become paramount and "Uisge Beatha" is the water  of life for the New Year.  One can only hope that with the absorption of whiskies and such  like that the mellowness they can produce is carried over into the  days that follow the inevitable cold grey dawn of the morning after.  In those days we shall need more of the good fellowship so evident  when a festive season approaches.  Store closing hours  The Retail Merchants Association in British Columbia has asked  the provincial government to amend the Municipal Act to remove the  authority to govern shopping hours, out of the hands of municipal  councils.  There may be an exception but most municipal councils would  be very pleased to get this hornets' nest in the hands of other jiirisL  dictions. During the last ten years there have been three or four attempts among Gibsons merchants to get uniformity in hours of closing. In larger centres where numerically big staffs are employed  closing hours are regarded more as labor legislation but in smaller  areas this is not the case.  In Gibsons and Sechelt hours of being open are largely a matter  for the proprietors of the stores to settle. Long hours are economically unsound from a profit point of view. The main trouble in smaller  centres is to get merchants to agree to one specific policy. At least  four attempts have been made in Gibsons. Invariably disagreement  has arisen.  There is a basic requirement in the Municipal Act which demands  one afternoon closing per week. Looking over the province one finds  there is no uniformity as to which afternoon stores will be closed.  Every day from Monday to Saturday has been selected. Local situations in this scattered populated country do not lend themselves to a  rigid time schedule. But, it does bother the tourist who moves about  from day to day.  Gibsons and Sechelt have problems with shops just outside the  municipal boundary. They can shut as they please so long as they  observe the one half-day closing. Under the present set-up of the act  the shops outside the municipality can decide to remain open on the  day set for closing within the municipality. This is the crux of the  Retail Merchants Association request.  Radio stations please note  Radio stations and other nev.*s media which had the Sunshine  Coast completely cut off by depth of snow and ferries supposedy running two hours late, should be more careful iri future.  The Sunshine Coast was NOT cut off at any time and the ferries  were not late during those snowy days. A letter was published in the  Coast News last week in which the operations manager of Sechelt  Motor Transport complimented area road department employees for  their fine work in keeping the roads open AT ALL TIMES.  If the facts were brought out it would not be amiss to state that  road travel in Powell River area and West Vancouver were not as  good as on the Sunshine Coast.  So please, radio news announcers please check before you have a  specific area cut off from anywhere. The Coast News, the Ferry  Authority, the RCMP and your own personal friends would be quite  happy to acquaint you with the truth about the Sunshine Coast anytime you feel like lifting a telephone receiver and dialing the number  you choose. Try it sometime!  A singing weed killer  is weed-seeds. Not vividly colored and lacking any bold markings, these cheerful creatures  are best known by the brilliance  and melody of their song.  Most talented are the white-  throated, white-crowned, field  and song sparrows. Of these,  the last is well named and may  be heard any month in the year  singing���"Maids!   Maids!  Maids!  Hang    up    your    teakettel-ettle-  ettle."  The song sparrow, most widely distributed sparrow in British  Columbia, is primarily a weed-  seed eater. During the nesting  period insects are fed to the  young and a certain amount of  animal matter is consumed by  adult birds at all times, but the  main item in the year-round diet  avis  Editor: You are to be complimented for smelling a rat on this  proposed Porpoise Bay park-  beach. The whole thing might be  called an unsuccessful real estate  manoeuvre. Or one might say,  ''The ignorant pawns in the game  may not have realized what they  were doing."  The Union Steamships, who  own a big portion of the Sechelt  waterfront, appear to be only  waiting for the psychological moment to unload their holdings. If  they and/or other interests could  have beguiled the residents of  Sechelt into fixing up a beach at  Porpoise Bay, so that the children and the litterbugs would concentrate there, then the proper  waterfront would have become  more exclusive and acquired additional real estate value and  prestige. A. R. Simpkins  Vi____. __.  Prepared by the Research Staff of  UCYCIOP-DIA   CANADIAJri  How did  Calgary start  stampeding?  The first organized Canadian  stampede was a : small affair  held in southern Alberta in 1903.  But that of 1912, the first one  staged in Calgary, was much  more ambitious. According to  Encyclopedia Canadiana, the  1912 Calgary Stampede was an  independent venture, the brainchild of Guy Weadick, a young  Wyoming cowboy. Alberta's four  most important cattlemen decided to back him. Weadick attracted expert riders and ropers from  as far away as Mexico and  Texas. Most of the prizes went  to professional riders from the  U.S.A., but Tom Three Persons.  a Canadian Blood Indian, won  the saddle-bronco championship.  The street parade, on opening  day, featured 2000, Indians in  ceremonial dress, riding Indian  ponies, Mounted Police in scarlet  uniforms, with hundreds of cowboys, cowgirls and chuckwagons.  Today the Calgary Stampede  has become almost world-famous.  It brings Calgary business to a.,  virtual standstill for six days,  as the city celebrates its annual fiesta with street shows,  square dancing in the streets  and a grand cow-boy ball finale.  Attendance for the six days of  the Stampede now exceeds 500  thousand. Thousands of Cal-  garians don cowboy costumes  and the white ten gallon hat that  has become the symbol of the  Stampede and of the Old West.  When   did Canada   get   its   first  separate  External Affairs  Minister?  Not until 1946. The Canadian  Department of External Affairs  was created in 1909 for the purpose of conducting "all official  communications between the  Government of Canada and the  Government of any other country in connection with the external affairs of Canada." The  term "external affairs" was  necessary to cover both Imperial  and foreign questions and the  two could not be separated since  foreign relations were still conducted through Imperial agencies. The new department was  at the outset essentially a "post  office" and came under the direction of the secretary of state.  In 1912 the prime minister was  designated secretary of state for  external affairs. The two portfolios remained combined until  1946 when the Rt. Hon. Louis S.  St. Laurent became the first  minister in charge of external  affairs only.  What kind of roads were first  built in Canada?  In the early days of New  France, the roads were largely  made of earth. Stone was occasionally used on the surface.  Corduroy roads, made of trees  laid side by side, were built in  low-lying areas. There were a  number of wooden bridges but  frequently the roads crossed the  streams at shallow places, or  fords. Equipped with only an  axe, a pick and a shovel, the  road-builder naturally took the  easiest way and followed the Indian trails. Thus the distance between farm and village might be  a mile as the crow flies but four  or five miles by road. The roads  in New France were divided into  three classes: (1) Chemins de  Royaux et des postes ��� main  roads, 24 feet wide; (2) Chemins  de communications ��� connecting  roads for farms ��� 18 feet wide;  and (3) Chemins de ceinture et  de traverse ��� back roads built  on orders of the seignoirs.  By JACK DAVIS, M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  The government had little  choice but to impose closure on  the flag debate. Two" hundred  and sixty/ speeches had already  been delivered on the subject.  Every possible argument and  point of view had been explored  in 33 days of sittings. Little could  be gained by more talk. Also everyone knew that two-thirds of  Jhe members were ready to support the red maple leaf flag as a  distinctive national emblem for  Canada.'.'//".. "pP  Still Mr. Pearson made a last  minute gesture. He invited; the  leader of the opposition to second the motion ��� the motion,  that is, of the all party committee  on the flag. Mr. Diefenbaker howr  ever, turned it down with contempt. He refused, in other words  to swing a united parliament behind the flag ��� a flag which will  soon be representing Canadians  at home and abroad.  ���������������.'..-'*;* ��� *  . Following Mr. Diefenbaker's  refusal, the government took a  step which governments never  take lightly. It has only been taken eight times since Confederation ��� twice by Liberal governments; six. times by Conservative governments. That step was  closure. Closure is a device designed to bring talking to an end.  It is a device which was also invented by a Conservative government.  Closure, it should be emphasized, is consistent with our parliamentary traditions. It is used  frequently in the United Kingdom. It is used often in Australia  and New Zealand. Indeed, it is  used whenever a time limit should  be put on debate and a final vote  is desired on a particular issue.-  *��� ��� '* ' *. '  Closure, as long as it is used  with discretion, is fundamental  to democracy. A filibuster, if it  goes on long enough, can prevent  a majority from ever reaching a  decision. It can prevent a demo  cratically elected government  from/governing. Arid indecision,  if it persists, can undermine the  very freedoms which parliament,  as a democratic institution, is designed to preserve.   .'���.'/���  Closure was used by the St.  Laurent government to cut off  the pipeline debate in 1956; But  it was badly handled. A time  limit was put on/debate at the  very beginning. It was introduced at the outset, This misuse of  the rules no doubt contributed to  the fall of the Liberal government  in 1957.   ���;'.;���  Mr. Diefenbaker Was against  closure at that time. So much so  that he promised to do away with  it altogether. But he soon forgot  about it once he was prime minister.  Six years  passed  and he  did not act. No doubt he ignored  his commitment^/ because/ he  knew that closure, in coriie circumstances, is the only way that  the majority in parliament can  eventually make its will felt in  the interests of the nation.  My main regret, and that of  most M.P.'s is that closure had  to be employed in the case of a  flag. This \yas an emotional issue. Hence it was a controversial  issue/Given our different backgrounds, it could not have been  otherwise. '  But Canada's national flag  must be national in its nature. It  must stress all that we have in  common. It ./'must lookinore to  our future than to our past. And,  it must be a sign that we are no  longer divided. We must close  ranks; close ranks as most of  our political parties have done.  Only in this way can we give our  new red maple leaf flag the send-  off which it deserves.  N.

Parents do not like to hear  plain truths. Unfortunately, in  many cases, they need to be advised to let their children reach  their own decisions.  One of the fundamental reasons for this undesirable situation is that all through their  child's growing years parents  have been sure that "Mother  knows best" or "Father will tell  you the right thing to do."  ' They have not seen clearly  enough that a child must be  given the chance to decide.  Sometimes he will make a poor  or even a wrong choice. But he  can only become accustomed to  thinking through a problem,  reaching a solution and acting  on it through his own experience.  He must have first-hand knowledge of life, not second-hand. A  child must learn from failure as  well as from success.  *  *      *  M   -���  ���f-^i \Aa-  The refusal of parents to let  them grow up is perhaps the  one thing that irks adolescents  most of all. Frequently there isv  bitter conflict between a boy or  girl and one or both parents  over  the choice  of  a  vocation.

Why don't parents' help their  children grow up by encouraging  them to make their own  choices?  In the one matter of selecting  their child's life work parents  have committed so many blunders that; one would think that  the thoughtful parent would  hesitate to rush in.  There are scores of biographies which tell of unhappy men  and women who were forced by  a father's domination to follow a  profession for which they were  ill-fitted.  Zane Grey's father absolutely  insisted that he become a den-'  tist. He obeyed, but was miserable in his years as a dentist.  Finally he abandoned this profession and turned to the writing  profession in which he became  famous.  * *��� ��� .*       Mothers may not be so strong-  minded about their child's life  work, but they do have a hard  time in the field of human relations. It is difficult for most  mothers to accept the definition  of a good parent as "one who  becomes progressively dispensable." Because they are so fond  of their little son it is hard for  them to see that by nature the  companionship of his peers ��� his  own age group, becomes increasingly important to him.  * *     *  A little later on, how rare it  is for a mother to look for the  good points in her son's best  girl. An outstanding psychologist  has pointed out in this matter  that "It is love that let's him  go, not the possessive love that  keeps him dependent. Freedom  makes a boy's healthy growth  to manhood possible."  Mothers  and fathers,  are  you  'making your   children's   healthy  growth to maturity possible: by  giving them chances throughout  the years to make their own  choices? Are you showing your  faith in them, by cutting the  "apron strings," which restrained them from harm when they  were small? *  Coast News, Dec. 31, 1964.       3  Take : life as you find it,  but  don't leave it that way.

Fraudulent  grades nipped  Western Canadian lumber producers have taken action to try  to prevent fraudulent grade  marking of lumiber after it has  left the producing mill.  At present* lumiber is grade-  marked at the buyer's option.  However, consistent with meeting all contractual obligations,  on all shipments after -June 30,  1965, members of the lumber producing associations in Western  Canada will adopt a policy of  grade-stamping all grades of dimension lumber at the mill.  The members Of the participating associations ��� Alberta Forest  Products Association; B.C. Lumber Manufacturers' Association;  Cariboo-P.G.E. Lumber Manufacturers Association; Interior  Lumber Manufacturers Association; Northern Interior Lumberman's Association; Saskatchewan  Timber Board ��� produce more  than 80% of the softwood lumber in Canada. More than 70%  of it is shipped to export markets, the major market being the  U.S.A.  B. M. Hoffineister, speaking  for these associations, said "The  industry is taking this action in  order to maintain the fine reputation of lumber as an engineered building material."  The problem first came to light  on the Eastern seaboard last  summer. Several lumber dealers face prosecution, after grand  jury indictments, for illegally  stamping low-grade lumber with  higher grade-markings.  ^;A-.>.f',j!v>4.;vA  Winter's wonderland! lot  '..'/'- ���< _ i ws-y-ty  x.

Gathercole, 886-2785  A University of^British Coliim-  bia education processor has written the first history of public  education: in B.C. ...  Professor F. Henry Johnson-is  the author of a 279-page book entitled A History of Public Education in British Columbia, which  covers all phases of elementary,  secondary, adult, and higher education,in B.C. from 1849 to 1964.  Published by UBC's Publication Centre, the book is available  from UBC's bookstore at $6.50  plus tax.  Prof. Johnson, who is director  of the elementary division in  UBC's Faculty of Education, said  the book has been in preparation  for more than three years and  is intended for B.C. school teachers, students in education, and  the. general public.  "Despite the fact that B.C. has  one of the most advanced educational systems in Canada," says  Prof. Johnson, "the history of  its growth and development has  never been written arid published."

Karen has been wearing a very  smart-looking outfit consisting of  a navy blue blazer, and a grey  skirt (for you H.E. girls, Karen  made: her blazer). Diane , and .  Mary have also been seen wearing two very smart-looking  blazer outfits. It looks as though  the blazer is going to be big.  "Something else which is becoming increasingly popular is  the rather expensive textured  nylon. Somehow. I can't help  thinking that they always look  better on someone else.

PRIZES FROM MERCHANTS  To correct an erroneous impression created in the story concerning the prizes announced last,  week for the best Christmas decoration lighting in Gibsons area,  the prizes offered were donated  by Gibsons merchants. The announcement was made last week  by C.yP. Ballentine who headed  the committee in charge of the  competition.  ,-alOngsi-le,.-histories,- of education  wntteinffor most;%ther Can_id__in  provinces.'  yOne: of the earliest landmarks  invB.C. education, Prof. Johnson  writes, was the achievement of  the first strictly . non-sectarian  school system in Canada. ��� since  the passage of the British North  America Act.  "This fact," he .writes, "seems  to have slipped by \_uite unnoticed in Ottawa and in eastern Canada which was usually very sensitive to the separate schools  question."  Prof. Johnson describes in detail the effect "which a number  of commission reports have had  on the B.C.  educational system.  The first of these, the. 1925 report of Dr. George M. Weir and  Dr. J. Harold Putnam, "had a  very great, influence in shaping  the school system over the next  30 years," Prof Johnson says.  It had repercussions in all  areas of elementary and secondary education, including curriculum, finance, development of  large school districts, and improvements  in  teacher  training.  The 1945 report of Dr. Maxwell  A.. Cameron, regarded at the  time as the most important single  event in the history of education  in B.C., gave the province a system of large administrative units  which other provinces and states  achieved only after negotiating  for many years with school  boards of small districts sensitive about their local pride and  autonomy.  The 1960 report of the Royal  Commission bn Education chaired by Dean S. N. F. Chant, was  a report by laymen with little or  no experience in public education  at the elementary and secondary  level, unlike the authors of the  two earlier reports, Prof Johnson says.  "The commissioners were the  appointed spokesmen for the people, attempting to interpret and  assess the public's opinion and  desires as expressed in the many  briefs presented," Prof Johnson  writes.  "They observed closely, sought  evidence, b a I a n c e d criticism  against conflicting criticism, and  presented a considered judgment  arid a general plan for the future," the:_book says.  Those-"charged by the department of education with implementing the report, Prof. Johnson writes, "have attempted to  modify the existing system of education to bring it into' harmony  with the general philosophy outlined in the report."  In addition to covering the elementary and secondary levels of  education, the book gives an up-  to-date treatment of the development of higher education from  the pearliest attempts; to ^establish  colleges to the recent implementation of the Macdonald report  and the birth of three new universities.

A Happy  New Year  To All  GIBSONS WELDING  & MACHINE WORKS  North Road ��� Gibsons  Elphinstone    Uniform store hoyrs sought  (By SHIRLEY DeMARCO)  The first basketball games  ofN  the season were held on .Dec. 11,  at Elphinstone with Elphie hosting Pender Harbour.  The junior boys played the first  game with Elphinstone winning  over Pender 39-25. Elphinstone's  top scorers were -Allan McBeth  (18) and John Karateew (9).  Elphie again came out on top  after a hard game between the  senior boys. Final score was 52-  37. Top scorers were Doug Cooper (17) and Ken Sneddon (14).  The bleachers were filled to  capacity with spectators from  both Pender and Gibsons areas,  which added to the morale of the  players. We hope our home  games in 1965 will be just as well  attended. .  A good job was done by the six  cheerleaders for Elphinstone and  the four from Pender. This year  the Elphinstone cheerleaders are  Mickey Scott, Anne . Thorold,  Mary Scott, Kirsten Jorgenson,  Vickie Fossett, Carol Mylroie,  Carolyn Flockhart and Gerry  Winn.. ��� ������-'���  Until our next game, Jan. 9,  Max Cameron at Elphinstone,  thanks to all who supported the  Cougars.  :':" The "provincial government has  been asked by the Retail Merchants' Association of Canada,  B.C. division, to open the Municipal Act for amendments to shop  closing regulations.  The association has asked Municipal ; Affairs Minister Dan  Campbell to propose amendments  squarely at the doors of the huge  Eastern Canadian and Eastern  American department .stores and  chains, who, the briefs state,  have exerted continuous pressure upon councils in many municipalities in B.C., where they  have branch stores.  Wide-open night-shopping is the  chief target of the association's  to the Municipal Act which would    submissions. '���', They   beliey.e.vth,at  take the authority for governing  shop hours out of the hands of  municipal councils. They state  that councils have' shown an alarming lack of responsibility- in  their deliberations and the situation has degenerated to the extent that many neighboring councils appear to be vying with each  other to produce the most ridiculous and undemocratic regulations. .  The blame for the present undesirable    situation    is    placed  there is absolutely no reason,  either compassionate or econoinic  to justify, bur subordination in  British Columbia to outside retail interests, which are primarily Eastern-oriented.  Uniformity in closing days has  also been requested in order to  give the tourists a break who now  cross our borders, and if unlucky  enough, can find stores closed for  three and even four consecutive  days as' they travel around the  province.

A major project started in '64  was construction of a microwave  system from Prince George to  Prince Rupert. Two links were  completed and the Smithers to  Terrace section will be done in  1965.  At -McLean Mountain, midway  between Terrace and Prince Rupert, B.C. Tel carried out an  aerial assault by helicopter with  tons of building materials and  microwave equipment to establish a microwave station which  is inaccessible by road. The station carries telephone circuits  and television programs of CFTK  TV (Terrace) to Prince Rupert  for rebroadcast locally and in  Alaska. -  Less hazardous physically, but  a first in a B.C. public school,  was the installation of educational television equipment in North  Kamloops   Secondary   School.  Classroom teaching by TV of  French,   English,   social   studies,  science and mathematics began  with the school term in September for Grades 8 and 9. The system included a studio equipped  with two cameras and a sound  system operated from a console  in an adjoining control room.  Eighteen classrooms are cabled  for the system. Equipment allows  for the use of films, "slides and  photographs and can be readily  adapted for microscopy.  The new division headquarters  was built on a three acre site at  Kamloops, for administration offices, a warehouse and a vehicle  center.  Expansion of dial telephone service was reflected throughout the  entire B.C. Tel system during the  year: Nine exchanges were converted from manual to dial service: Celista, Port Edward, Ganges, Gulf Islands, Vanderhoof,  100 Mile House, Forest Grove, In- '  vermere,   Golden.  Another 10 new dial offices  were opened expanding service  in the local areas, including Cordova Bay, Sardis, Rosedale, Jaf-  fray, Taylor, Grasmere, Willow  Point, Black Point, Wellington  and Beaverdell. B.C. Tel is 97.7  percent dial operated and has 70  percent of its total telephones on  Direct Distance  Dialing service.  During 1964 DDD was inaugurated at Abbotsford, serving the  local exchange and Mission, Chil-  liwack, Agassiz, Hope, Yarrow,  Boston.Bar, and Yale. In addition, Powell River also received  DDD service.  During 1965', DDD service will  be extended to other exchanges,  allowing subscribers to dial their  HALL���METAL  GENERAL SHEET METAL  Domestic  ���  Commercial  Industrial   ���   Marine  HEATING  Phone 885-9606  SUNSHINE COAST TRAILER PARK  1 mile west of Gibsons,on Hiway.

In  addition to consuming carbon,  dioxide and converting it- into  the oxygen vital to human existence, trees serve as dir filters,  removing natural and industrial  dusts. Dust count is always  lower on the lee side of a park  or green belt.
