Students  and staff members spent a few  minutes in putting it out. It occurred at about 2:45 p.m. Members of the teaching staff and  Cpl. Nelson of the RCMP interrogated the children, eventually  getting down to individual questioning.  The next thing occurred Saturday evening when one parent  asked to obtain her son's shoes  from his locker. When they  were picked up, matches were  found in the toe of one shoe.  The owner disclaimed any knowledge of'the matches in his shoe.  The school staff and RCMP are  continuing their investigation.  In the meantime a request that  fire extingishers be placed in  each room has been fulfilled.  This information was brought  out at the district school board  meeting Monday night when a  letter covering the events was  read, from Principal W. L. Reid.  Gibsons Kiwanis club's last  two meetings featured speakers  who have discussed Brotherhood at one meeting and the  difference between business in  America and India.

Henry Kelly of St. Bartholomew's Anglican church discussed the meaning of brotherhood week and the week previous Bepin Oza discussed- the  variations between business in  his native country and on this  continent.  Kiwanis are looking towards  getting more work done at  Brothers Memorial park where  last summer the club spent  $1,600 and with the aid of volunteers put in about 940 man  hours of work. Just as soon  as weather permits work will  be started again. Arrange-'  ments were also made for the  Easter Seal campaign in April.  Homework panel opinions  QUARTET TO SING  A male vocal quartet will  visit Bethel Baptist church in  Sechelt at the 11:15 a.m., service and at Madeira Park Tabernacle at 7:30 p.m. The quartet is composed of young people from Vancouver who will  bring with them a speaker, Mr.  Jim Holt.  As our philosophy of education changes to meet the needs  of tomorrow so will come changes in our attitude towards home  work and examinations said Mr.  S. Potter summarizing the varied opinions of students and  staff of elementary and secondary schools taking part in a  panel discussion on homework  at Elphinstone Monday. As an  example senior students may  work on individual projects in  their own and school time rather than the stereotyped lesson  and homework approach to gaining knowledge.  Some of the points made by  the  panel  members  were:  The responsibility of the teacher is to teach responsibility and  a sense of accomplishment is  important to the male ego ���  Mr. J. Ferrari.

Unify in (he Community tiefs things done  Municipal airstrips praised  The recent search for the three youths lost on a hunting trip  in Victoria, B.C. triggered active participation by the Civil Defence Air Services Organization. Six private planes, all piloted  by members of the Provincial Civil Defence Air Services, were  called upon to assist in the search by the Air Sea Rescue Centre.  The owner and pilots of these planes donated their time to  the search with no thought of loss of pay or personal inconvenience. They received gas and oil for the time spent on the search  at agreed rates. We tip our hats to them ��� they serve when  called upon.  Following this episode, we reflected a bit on past disasters  and the role that light aircraft had played. The following are two  examples: During the Alberni Tidal Wave the airstrip at Port  Alberni was partially under water at the height of the disaster  and was closed off. The Hope Slide was approximately 10 miles  from a small airport where it was possible, to land small planes.  From a disaster stand-point, we feel that it is most important  for municipalities to develop landing strips. They serve a community in many ways. For example: Emergency medical cases  to special hospitals; air ambulance service; and the attraction  of air tourists and their families which is economically sound  for any area.���John H. Erb, provincial Civil Defence co-ordinator.  The Gibsons-Sechcelt Municipal Airport at Wilson Creek is a  going concern and greater use is being made of it year by year.  Interest lacking  Once again the Ratepayers' association in Gibsons has foundered. This is the third time in ten years that it has expired. Small  wonder now that in our affluent society with good wages generally and the value of the dollar not looming as large as it used to,  the people who could keep a ratepayer organization on the go,  fail to attend meetings.  The recent effort to enliven local municipal affairs with the  observations of a ratepayer group came about as the result of the  removal of household water users from metered rates. There were  perhaps half-a-dozen people who really objected. To try and keep  a ratepayer organization alive with a few people who have one  gripe is not enough. Yet with mounting school and municipal expenditures there is a place for intelligent exploration into such affairs. But who would attend the meetings?  minute message  Ash Wednesday was the beginning of a period of time  when the Church seems, to  some, to put a further damper  on things. There are those who  consider that there is little, or  even no, need for this kind of  thing any more, besides, what  has it got to do with being  a better person, or leading a  'good' life? If everyone lived  up to the 'Golden Rule' we  should all be better off ��� so  we say, but this is only a part  of the truth.  ' li we did away w.Uh Christmas, Easter, and some of the  other holidays, there would  soon be an outcry. We need  these days off for refreshment  and relaxation, for if we did  not have them there would,  most certainly, be a far greater  need for the psycho-analyst. It  is not so much in realizing that  we  need  time  off,  as  to  the  original  intention     of    having  such time off.  If we want to play soccer,  become a chartered accountant,  practice medicine, or to be a  better person, then we must  acknowledge certain rules, and  above all abide by these rules.  Just imagine, for one second,  that every motorist had his, or  her, set of rules, can you imagine what a horrible mess  there would be on our highways? So must it be in our  every-day living: There must  be time in our lives when we  sit down and ask ourselves  'Where are we going.?' The  Season of Lent is set aside for  just this purpose ��� to re-value  our lives, having in mind the  Redemptive Sufferings of our  Lord Jesus Christ, who died  that we might have life, and  have it more abundantly.���Rev.  J. H. Kelly, The Anglican  Church of Canada.  PiikiMiii|i  in passing  In case you have friends who  are always arguing whether  Toronto is a more heavily populated city than Montreal or  vice versa, here are the latest  and official figures from Dominion Bureau of Statistics  publications with all cities except Regina and Saskatoon including what is known as metropolitan area. Those two prairie  cities, have no metropolitan  areas yet.  1965 Census 1961  Calgary  323,000  279,062  Edmonton  385,000  337,568  Hamilton  431,000  395,189  London  , 196,000  181,283  Montreal  2,321,000  2,109,509  Ottawa  482,000  429,750  Quebec  392,000  357,568  Toronto  2,066,000  1,824,481  Vancouver  850,000  790,165  Windsor  206,000  193,365  Winnipeg  490,000  475,989  Regina  126,000  112,141  Saskatoon  106,000  95,526  Canada's population at January 1 this year amounted to  19,785,000, an increase of 1,-  547,000 since the census of June  1, 1961, the Dominion Bureau  of Statistics reports.  Among the provinces, the  largest numerical growth since  the 1961 Census was in Ontario,  596,000 or 9.6%; Quebec increased by 453,000 or 8.6%;  British Columbia by 209,000 or  12.8% (the largest percentage  growth); Alberta by 124,000 or  9.3%; Newfoundland by 43,000  or 9.4%; Manitoba by 37,000 or  4.0%;.

In a recent issue of Sea and  Pacific Motor Boat published  at Long Beach, California,  there is an article by Lester  Peterson of Gibsons. It is titled  How to Follow the Rock Painting Trail of Jervis Inlet and  is accompanied by a map depicting the traditional homes of  the Sechelt Indian Band. Two  photographed rock paintings  accompany the article. The  article is described for the  reader as a new kind of prowling adventure for argonauts  who cruise the inlet areas north  of Vancouver, B.C.  A balloon race ao>-oss the  prairies by the world's top experts in the sport, the Ballooning Fraternity of Europe, was  suggested by Canada's Centennial Commissioner John Fisher.  Speaking at a luncheon at the  Toronto Inn on the Park to the  Propane Gas. Association, Mr.  Fisher said that the association  and its member companies  could well sponsor such an  event, as a Centennial project.  The European balloonists are  looking for a Canadian SDonsor,  he said.  THE  COAST NEWS  19 h: 11!

Several dads were busy making sleds last week and the  youngsters had a wonderful  time sliding slopes.  Anew approach to family living  The social scientist and social  worker, trained in new techniques, v have started work on  a modern approach to preserve  what is good and to promote  the healthy adjustments in  family living required by our  changing  society.  The Vanier Institute of the  Family, according to its president, Dr. Wilder Penfield, will  add to this work through strategic research into family relations, the dissemination of information to the public, and;  most of all, as an agency that  takes as its objective the promotion and improvement of education in and through the home.  Writing in a recently published brochure, Dr. Penfield describes the emergence of the  Vanier Institute of the Family  as the conclusion and monument to the Canadian Conference on the Family, the need  for the institute, its organization and purposes.  The brochure quotes His Excellency, the Governor-General  as emphasizing that what the  institute can achieve will depend upon widespread public  support. This is not a nebulous,  ivory-tower endeavor, but a project that comes down to the  practical realities of everyday  living. It concerns the family  arid so, everyone, he states.  The idea ;6f a Canadian family  research and educational institute supplementing the work of  "existing organizations was in- ���  itiated by Governor-General  and Madame Vanier. General  Vanier is patron of the institute and both he and Madame  Vanier are life members.  Dr. Penfield points out in the  brochure that, as compared  with school and university, the  family and the home are still -  first in educational importance,  or should be. And the family  deserves and can use an ap-r  -propriate share in the vast  sums that are being handed  out so hopefully to academic  institutions. Family education  has four million classrooms in  Canada, arid it is only through  such an organization as the  Vanier Institute that money  can promote and hope to improve the culture of mind and  the building of character in  these classrooms, he adds.  Forest facts  for schools  The first of a series of five  booklets dealing with the forest  industry has been published by  the Council of the. Forest Industries as a Centennial project. Bound volumes of the  series will be given to schools  arid libraries, and class lots  will be provided to. all .secondary schools.  The first 24-page booklet British Columbia Forest Facts relates the history, product riiark-  ets and scope of the forest industry, while subsequent booklets, will detail information on  the individuals sectprs ��� logging, pulp and paper, lumber  and plywood.  The series will be used as  supplementary information for  Grade XI students on General  Business and Social Studies  courses. The booklets have  been prepared in co-operation  with teachers and officials of  the department of education.  '*��� *     "*  The brochure also - lists the  more than one hundred members of the institute, representing every province i of Canada  and a wide range of interests,  the officers, directors and staff.  It notes that the secretary- General of the Vanier Institute,  Mr. Stewart Sutton, a Canadian,  took up his duties in January,  1966. He was previously director-General of the International  Social Service, located in  Geneva, following eight years  as UNICEF director for Africa  and the Middle East.  Copies of the brochure are  available from: The Vanier Institute of the Family, 170 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa 4, Ontario.  N.

DAN WHEELER, Agent  HOPKINS LANDING ��� Ph. 8869663  ALWAYS.LOOK TO IMPERIAL FOR THE BEST  Xsso] Canadians have language problem in British town  From the LOUGHBOROUGH & SHEPSHED ECHO  "Would you like a cookie?"  Mrs. Wendy Thomson asked an  '" "Echo" reporter. Then she corrected herself arid said: "I  mean, biscuit!$ Af$w minutes  later when her schoolteacher  husband William talked1 about  apricots he pronounced them  "appricots." And it transpired  that when-their youngest child  began school at Shepshed he at  " first thought his fellow pupils  were speaking in French ��� because he could not understand  their accent!  "Yes, we've had bur language difficulties, but I think  we are learning fast. So fast  in fact that when we get home  people may wonder what we >  are .saying," said a smiling  Mr. Thomsom        .  Language is only one of the -  directions in which the family  have' had to adjust themselves  since coming to spend a year  in Shepshed from their home  irriCanada.  *  *  They have encountered plenty  of points about. this country  which are unusual to them.  Some they like and some they  are not'so happy about.  But first, how 7 did it come  about that they left their spacious home in North Vancouver,  British Columbia, to reside in  a semi-detached at 16, Lans--  downe-rayenue, Shepshed?  It/is all tied up with a scheme  under , which teachers from  Cariadd1 and the United Kingdom swop houses and jobs for  a year to give one another a  'broader understanding of how-  other; folk live.  r "Quite obviously, it is a wonderful opportunity. A family of  five,. ������ such as ours, could not  possibly do it without an arrangement of this sort," said  Mr. Thomson.  Their children are" daughter  Robbin (16) and sons Roy (11)  and Glen (8). Robbin and Roy  are both at Loughborough College School. Glen began at Shepshed Junior. School and is now  at Ashby Manor House Preparatory School.  *  *  They aire living in the house  of Mr. and Mrs. Reg. Witter,  who are enjoying life in the  Thomsons' home in North Vancouver. They came here last  autumn and are due to return  in July.  So that he could occupy the  job vacated by Mr. Witter, Mr.  Thomson is teaching metal-  work at Ashby Ivanhoe Secondary School ��� though back  home his subject is woodwork.  Mr." Witter has been found  a metalwork post in a senior  secondary school in North Vancouver��� not the school Mr.  Thomson teaches in.  Both receive the same salaries as before, paid by their  respective education authorities  This means that although the  Thomsons are comfortably off  here ��� due to the Canadians'  higher wages ��� the Witters are  finding the going a little tougher in Canada, although it is  apparent from letters that the  cost of living is not quite so  high as they anticipated.. And  Mrs. Witter has taken a job  as a nursing assistant in a  hospital, receiving 26 times as  much for her labors as when  she began work in England in  1943.  *  *  *  "We  have  received  a  number  of letters  and  they seem  to be enjoying the experience,"  commented  Mrs.   Thomson.  She added: "I suppose they  are finding some things they  don't like, the same as we are..  But as soon as we are ��� back  in our respective homes we will  remember only the good things  ���that's human nature!"

Standing head arid shoulders  above . the rest arnong their,  very few gruihbles is '..��� not  unexpectedly���the English winter. And coupled along with  this is: the housing, which they  consider inadequate to deal  with the cold.  .In their district in Canada  there was at Christmas 18 inches of show, with a tempera-'  ture out of doors of 23 degrees  farenheit. But so good is the  central heating in the house,  which Mr .Thomson built himself out: of pumice blocks, that  the family are always snug.  "..'-.*      7*..'..-.* ���'���  "Here homes don't seem to be  made to. cope,"     he     added.  "Wind comes through the win-,  dow frames and the doors and  the kitchen wall is damp."  Despite their roaring fire,  ���they-find it difficult to get  warm and have taken to wearing all the time ��� in bed, too  ��� heavy pullovers.  He contended: "I think the  reason why you feel the cold  so much in England is that it  is damp."  The family, when interviewed  on Tuesday, had    just    come  : back after a fortnight in Austria.  At night, at St. Anton, where  they were staying, they turned  off the heaters on going to bed  and. threw open the windows.  It was so cold that milk in the  bedroom froze.  "Yet," he said, "because of  the crisp atmosphere you  could go out of doors without  an overcoat and feel perfectly  warm.  "But here ..." He did not  finish his words because bf a  "Brrrn\. ..."  They enjoyed last autumn,  however, and were enchanted  by the multitude of colors in  the countryside and harvest  scenes.  ���,.-.-*       *       *  It is clear that Mum and  Dad are not impressed by the  long-haired trend among British youth, as they are used to  the close-cropped Canadian  style. But their view is not shared  by  Robbin,     who     favors  flowing locks among the male  species.  How is Mr. Thomson finding  his teaching post?  He is enjoying it, although,  he stressed, he cannot draw  comparisons with back home.  For here he is teaching, youngsters aged 11-15 and out in the  Dominion he handles those  from 15-19.  % .   jje     #  He has found his English  charges well behaved and finds  it refreshing to teach younger  children for a spell, because  they are not so demanding.  Like all Canadians ��� who  come from a country lacking,  history-wise���-they regard England's ancient buildings as a  huge attraction.  All the traditional London  tourist magnets ��� such as the  House of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben���they  consider fabulous, even more  awe-inspiring, in fact, than they  expected. --  They have already been to-1  London on numerous occasions  ���and will be going many more  times. "There are some really  tremendous places," observed  Mrs;  Thomson. ,  What of their life in Shepshed? They find the pace, of  every day existence much slower thari they are used to, which  is; at times refreshing to them  and on occasions annoying.  They like the personal touch  shopkeepers are able to cultivate through meeting the same  customer regularly.  In Canada in the huge department store in which they shop  they rarely see the same assistant twice.  But they are not too keen  on . having to visit several  places to purchase all the  things they need, instead of  buying all under the same roof.  Despite their remark about  long hair, Mr. and Mrs. Thomson have a "pat on the back"  for English young people.  "Teenagers here don't seem  to have a lot of money to throw  about, don't go roaring around  in cars, and seem very polite  and nice."  Coast News, March 3, 1966      3  On the point of cars, her husband commented: "At ��� the  school at which I teach in Canada there are 200 cars among  800 pupils. And don't get the  impression that the vehicles  are all wrecks. Some are^bet-  er than anything I have ever  driven."  When the five return to their  home, 1,200 feet up a mountain  side ��� they also have a summer residence on Savary Island, 100 miles north of Vancouver���they will have a great  deal to chat over with friends.  And they will feel particularly  proud to point out various imported items like hosiery made  in Shepshed.  * .    *      *  "Brand names such as 'St.  Michael's' and 'St. Botolph's  are well known among Canadians," Mr. Thomson declared.  Before our reporter left'Mr!  and Mrs, Thomson invited him  to guess what was the most  useful possession among all the  thing left behind for their use  by the Witters. It was���an umbrella!  i  EDUCATION WEEK  6 - 12  Education Week is your opportunity  to learn whatthe schools are doing  for our youth.

Rider Haggard; The fascinating  film combines romance, adventure, spectacle and fantasy.  Schools must not just win  sports cups; their job is to train  every pupil to play the game  with confidence and enjoyment.  Mr. E. Mansouri used this statement as his theme for the physical education workshop held in  the gym of the Gibsons Elementary school over the weekend. . ;:.-:���  Employed by the community  programs branch of the department of education, Esmat Mansouri travels the province on  invitation from school districts  demonstrating^ how teachers  can lead their pupils in keep-  fit exercises: that are fun. Even  the one-room school can make  use of the calssroom desk as a  base for: push-ups and back  bends that will revive the pupil  and return him to study refreshed and vigorous.  With the recently completed  gyms in three of the district's  schools, teachers looked for  guidance in making the best  use of facilities gyms offer. The  answer came in great part with  the sessions Mr. Mansouri conducted with pupils of Gibsons  .���elementary7who turned out as  demonstration classes. How to  get pupil interest with the use  of their suggestions for exercising, demanding they think as  they exercise, and guiding the  exercises so that a complete  working of all body muscles is  accomplished were fully illustrated as Mr. Mansouri worked  with the pupils.  Asked how much time each  day should go into games and  exercises, Mr. Mansouri replied  that 20 minutes in small portions throughout the day between lessons is the very minimum. Pupils must have as well  their regular gym classes each  week. Actually pupils work better after a short game or set  of interesting exercises, he said,  and quoted the observation of  one researcher who found the  pupils wrote a better hand irii-  mediately after vigorous exercise than they did when the  writing lesson followed immediately after another academic  period.  Better posture, more vigorous  minds and greater stamina of  body, and the wholesome attitude/developed by mass participation in games are the challenging aims of physical education in the schools today, he  said.  Echoes  (By SANDRA WARD)  The last inter-season volleyball and basketball games were  played last weekend. On Friday  night the junior boys, senior  boys and senior girls played  basketball against Squamish.  The scores were:  Junior Boys: Elphinstone 42,  Squamish 40.  Senior Boys: Elphinstone 41,  Squamish 31.  Senior Girls: Elphinstone 34,  Squamish 18.  On Saturday two volleyball  games were played as well as  two basketball games. In volleyball the Elphinstone Junior  girls won over Squamish and in  the Senior girls game Elphinstone won over Squamish. In  the basketball games, Junior  girls, Squamish 37, Elphinstone  34, and Junior boys, Elphinstone  44, New Westminster Church 27.  The top scorers for the games  were Phil Malpass, 9 points;  Etta Stewart 14 points, Craig  Chamberlain 12 points.

The business has been  on the market for sale follow-,  ing the death of Jack Jonas  who provided a taxi service for  many years' iri Sechelt area.  Salient  points  emphasized iri  Thursday's Unitarian Fellowship meeting in Roberts Creek.  Hall revealed that automation  with all.its problems is upon  us and that we are not prepared to cope with it.  The second of these was argu--  ed by a member of the audience  whose opinion was that, in effect, we always have managed  to cross our bridges when we  came to ihem and that we will  cross this bridge successfully,  also. He said we should glory  in the challenge of handling the  new way of life in which we  are about to find ourselves, and  that it is both negative and  pessimistic thinking to believe  otherwise.  The meeting, chaired by Ted  Poole, consisted of reports "  brought back from New Westminster where he and four others had attended a seminar on  Automation and Huriian Values,  sponsored by the Ad Hoc committee of the Democratic insti-  Roberts Creek  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Rock  collections,   sea. shells,?  feathers,   post   cards   ���   these;,  and many other collections w-ere  displayed at the Roberts Creek  hobby show in the library of the  school.

Robert Hartle's mineral collection attracted many because  of his unusual specimens and  attractive r arrangement.

Mr.  W. A. C. Bennett was born on  Sept. 6, 1900, in New Brunswick,  and his parents were of United  ���Empire Loyalist stock as Mr.  Bennett describes them. He was  married to Ann May Richards  of Wellington, B.C. on July 11,  1927. They have three children,  Russel J., William R. and Anita.  After a stay in Alberta, Mr.  ���Bennett established a hardware  store in the Okanagan Valley  in 1930, and his company, Bennett's Stores Ltd., still runs  five establishments. He is probably a millionaire.  Mr. Bennett was first elected  to the legislature in 1941,  and  was re-elected at every general  election since,  with brief  time  out in 1948 when  he  attemptd  to get into the federal house.  He ran and lost against O. L.  Jones, M.P.  a New Democrat,  and returned to the provincial  legislature in 1949.  A 1965 article in the Vancouver Sun, by Mac Reynolds, said:  "Few     outside     his     family  would call him lovable. Cece Ben  nett is about as prone to humility as iCassius Clay. It is inescapable that a strong politician  makes   enemies,   and   Bennett  makes enemies effortlessly.  "Perhaps the wittiest definition of his sense of fair play  came from a resident Toronto  correspondent, who wrote that  Bennett would win even if it  meant moving the goal post  while the game was in progress."  . The Premier understands  showmanship and possesses  good luck. Twice in his coalition government days, Mr. Ben- '  nett tried to win the provincial  Conservative leadership from .  Herbert Anscombe. Mr. Bennett failed each time, and you  cannot get luckier than that.  You would think that with the  successes Mr. Bennett has won  to date that he would have become benign and 'Unruffled in  carrying out his duties as Prem-  ier. Strangely, that has not  turned out to be true.  JTiis failure to answer letters  is peculiar. Even Royal Commissioners have found that,the  premier does not like to answer  con-espondence. I have often  written to Mr. Bennett, to be  completely ignored.  On budget day the premier exploded. In reply to a barb from  (Robert" Strachan, leader of the  opposition, about the Williamson  forgery case, the premier said  excitedly that there was no super-government in British Colum  bia. Mr. Bennett was flushed,  shouting, and waving his arms,  denouncing the suggestion that  Al Williamson had unofficial  cabinet rank in the government.  The specially invited guests on  the floor of the house were incredulous.  Recently the premier called  the legislature into a rare Friday night sitting.

The premier  refused this courtesy and called  an unexpected night sitting.  ; In the confusion the premier  threatened to call a snap election. The situation was hard to  believe. ;  The latest snafu was created  when the premier called a press  conference last week. Because  most of the reporters were late,  (it was a hurriedly called conference), the premier locked all  of them out except an unfortunate radio reporter, who arrived  early. He was told to tell the  rest. When the press gallery  complained about their treatment the premier threw their  letter into the wastepaper basket.  Edwin Bolwell in the Globe  and Mail of June 23, 1962, quoted Mr. Bennett as follows: "You,  ���and I can both be successful  hardware merchants, my friend.  You and I can be successful  lawyers. You and I can be successful surgeons. ' In politics,  only one of us can win."  ANGLE PARKING COMING  Just as soon as it becomes  t feasible parking at Seaside  ' Plaza on Gower Point Rd. and  between Gibsons Bakery and  the end of the concrete retaining wall on Marine Drive, angle  parking will replace the present  system at both points. Such  parking may have to await paving of both areas. This came up  when Gibsons council discussed  parking problems at its last  meeting.  Wood can take it.

Prime Minister Pearson made  an announcement of major significance last week. He said  that Ottawa would build, own  and operate a $120 million  power transmission line in  Manitoba. The first phase of a  national power grid is to be  launched in that province. It  will tap the vast hydro-electric  resources of the Nelson River.  It wiM bring power, in abundance, to Winnipeg. And the  construction of this new line  will help to open up new mines  and forest areas in Canada's  northland.  READY  MIX  M(WE  P & W DEVELOPMENT CO.

PRESS  For years there has been  talk about a national power  grid. Now it is becoming a  reality. Long distance transmission is making it possible  to span great distances. And  each year new technological  break throughs are improving  the economics of tying the  country's power networks together.  Manitoba has had a problem  on the Nelson. Sites totalling  at least 5 million kilowatts  have been left undeveloped for  lack of markets. Now Ottawa  is making it possible for Manitoba Hydro to tap larger markets to the south. Links with  Saskatchewan Power, Ontario  Hydro and neighboring U.S.  utilities will bring in additional  .���income in the early years and  thereby drive down Nelson  power costs, and rates more  rapidly than would otherwise  have'been the case.  Federal financing is attractive for several reasons. Ottawa  can borrow money at lower  rates cof interest ~ than!:the provincial power utilities. It i can  write these power lines off over  50 years.; And it is prepared  to shift the costs so that a  heavy investment in transmission^ lines; will no longer be a  stumbling block to the early de-  . v.elopmerit > of : many of our \  northern  river   systems.  A.'national power grid, by its  very nature, will reach out to  other provinces. It will keep  more of our Canadian produced power at home.

Everyone will benefit. Contractors and construction men will  have more work at a relatively  early date. And consumers in  far away places will pay less  for power than would otherwise  have been the case.  We are starting to build power lines in-a big way. But the  idea of a grid is not new. The  iTJ.S. government has built  major systems, like that of the  Bonneville administration, with  a view to harnessing the Columbia and serving consumers  with low cost power in the Pacific Northwest. The same thing  has happened in the Tennessee  Valley. And overseas the countries of Europe are getting together. Power lines- spanning  the English Channel and threading their way through the Iron  Curtain now form part of a  b\gger concept of energy and  its utilization on an internation-.  al scale. If other countries can  do this, Canada can surely put  its vast hydro electric resources  to work in a way that will  benefit all of the provinces in  this great nation^ of ours.  B.C. is bound to benefit from  this initiative. Our hydro electric power potential is larger  than that of any other province, except Quebec. But distance  is still  the problem.   So  Ottawa's initiative in offering  to build extra high voltage,  long distance transmission lines  iiis to ;be welcomed. It can help  to solve our dilemma on the  Columbia. It can help to market surplus power from the  Peace. It can help us to harness the Fraser and the Liard.  New transmission lines built  with federal tax money may  soon be marching across the  province. As such they will  form part of a major power  network in Western Canada.  The nation's credit buttressed  by the planning of our local  hydro authorities can, in other  words, ensure that the wealth  of our great northern 'river  systems will be put to use much  earlier than if we had to be  forced to do these things on  our own.

Handi-Van iseasy  to load and unload. Two  curbside doors may be  specified, and then there  are a number of extra  window combinations  available.'  Handi-Van can turn  in a 35.5 foot circle.  Lets you scoot out  of packed traffic and  deliver your goods  where and when  you promised.  Look at all.the space.  Handi-Van measures  211 cu. ft. inside. That  wi jl hold up to a ton of  payload. Loadspace  length from engine  housing back is over  92 inches.  The engine is a 120-  hp engineering gem.  And if you want  more muscle, you  can specify a 140-  h p workhorse.  Powerglide is avail-  ble too.  The metal floor is  built to shrug off  abuse from 'most  any kind of load/  In fact, it's a heavy  duty floor at no  extra cost.  Handi-Van's body  and frame are unitized. And the  heavy-gauge steel  has extra resistance  to corrosion, giving  you longer service.  You can see how great Handi-Van is from the back.  But the most important thing is on the front.  It's that GMC nameplate that  makes the difference. Not the  plate itself of course, but what it  represents. GMC has a reputation  for Engineering Leadership. For  instance: realizing most Handi-  Vans would be city-operated and  subject to road moisture and salt,  GMC engineers started at the  bottom. Sheet metal in exposed  areas is first galvanized, then  covered with aluminum paint,  phosphated ... then, after all that,  undercoated! No wonder Handi-  Van stands up so well under the  worst a Canadian winter has to  offer. And no wonder GMC has  earned that reputation for leadership. When you're thinking vans-  think Handi-Van by GMC.
