The objective is  to speed up" the use of parking  places in the business area to  allow a greater number of people to do their business in the  shortest time.  Just as soon as finances ..will  allow arid the water supply is  improved to allow removal of  the old water reservoir on  School Road, council will be  able to accommodate the school  board's request that road conditions in the. area of the tank be  improved.   'pp'.'.  Council approved a motion  that H. A.

Pearkes, at Government House.  The Gold Cord, equivalent to  the Queen's Scout Badge is the  highest award for Girl Guides  and is a pinnacle reached only  by the diligent and dedicated, so.  it is no mean achievement for  six girts of one company and  one. former member to have aspired to this height in the same  year.  Expressing his pleasure in being able1 to publicly honor the  girls, Mr. Hodgson spoke to  them of the importance of good  citizenship, not only to the community and Canada but the  whole world.

WEST)  While we chuckle at staid old  Vancouver's ease of spring fever and some have mingled with  the crowds around the Courthouse gating in some wonder  and delight at its manifestations,  Gibsons is preparing to swing  into sprang with a reverberating  \ drum beat. Gibsons will host  no less than four band concerts  in the next month, so get your  calendar and carefully mark  the dates.  To get B.C.'s Centennial year  off to scintillating start the  Centennial committee has invited the Kitsilano Boys Band under their conductor Mr. Arthur  Delamont. Advance ticket sales  are going well and everything is  set for a capacity audience at  Elphinstone, this Saturday at 8  p.m.  On Sat., April 30, the United  Church Choir is sponsoring a  return visit of the Rutland  School band from the Okanagan.  This band which is a comparative newcomer to the growing  ranks of school bands in the  province has flourished under  the talented leadership of Lloyd  Burritt. Lloyd is a 1958 graduate of Elphinstone. The band  played here last year leaving  happy memories of a delightful  concert and a friendly group of  young people.  Also ori tour of Lower Main-  ��� land schools is the North Kamloops band which will play for  Elphinstone students on Thursday afternoon, May 12. There  may be a few seats for members of the public.  A grand finale to these musical events is being planned by  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council. A spring festival of choirs  and instrumental music in which  some three hundred elementary  school students will take part.  School choirs from Irvines  Landing, Madeira Park, Sechelt,  Davis Bay, Roberts Creek, Gibsons and Langdale, the School  District Band and newly formed  orchestra and the Residential  School Band and dancers have  been invited to perform. The  Arts Council is arranging for  auditions for four soloists, aged  13 or younger, one from each of  the following categories, piano,'  accordion, voice and woodwind,  stringed or brass instrument. It  is hoped to be able to present  the Vancouver Puppetry Guild  at the evening performance.  ROSARY FOUND  An Italian made rosary was  brought to the Coast News in  the hopes that whoever lost it  will claim it at the Coast News  office.  quirements for new. and renovated equipment which council  will examine when costs are  obtained.  Debris on the boat ramp constructed by the chamber of commerce has been 'cleared away  by village equipment, Councillor Fred Feeney reported.  Removal of the bus stop from  the front of the Dixon block to  the new blacktop area was proposed by council. This would  allow angle parking in front of  the block. The Public Utilities  Commission may be involved in  this move.  Guy Fisher, taxi man who appealed to council for a taxi  stand near the bus stop will be  informed council some time ago  gave him that right. He will be  so advised and given a chance  to select a spot of his choice  and given the right to erect a  sign.  A request came from PjU.C.  for council to outline its complete policy on water connections to non-resident applicants  so that P.U.C. can decide whether it should proceed further  and decide whether a meeting  should be held to bring Norman  Procknow's .Sunnycrest Motel  case to a head.  1%  KITSILANO BOYS' BAND will play Saturday evening starting at 8  p.m. in Elphinstone Secondary School auditorium and judging from  the ticket sales so far, a large number of people are looking forward to hearing this world-famous organization. The program will  include Luthold's march Onward,'Cole Porter's Canaan, an Al  Blrt Medley arranged by Paul Yoder, Irving Berlin's Annie Get  Your Gun, Burland's popular No Matter What Shape, Tobani's fantasia Creme de la Creme, Alford's Standard of St. George, Sound  df Music Selections, Chabrier's snappy Espana Rhapsody, and  Walters Folk Festival Hootenanny, which looks like a good program for an excellent band of youthful musicians.

The examinations, conducted  by Dr. J. D. Hobson of Gibsons  and Mr. W. C. Timco, First Aid  Inspector for the Workmen's  Compensation Board, involved a  two hour -written test, an oral  test, and a practical examination.  Successful candidates for the  First Aid Certificate were:  Messrs M. J. Smurthwaite, W.  H. Takahashi, A. C. Brown, A.  L. Campbell, L. Carriere, C. I.  Gibson, G. W. Hall, J. Irvine,  M. J.

The others, with  the exception of Mrs. Propp and  Miss Robinson, are employed  by M & W Logging, Canadian  Forest Products, and Vancouver Tug.  The St. John Ambulance  course, held once a year, is  open to the public. Canadian  Forest Products Ltd. provides  the instructor, facilities and  equipment.  Mr. Peter Madison, first aid  supervisor for Canadian Forest  Products, a qualified instructor  in St, John Ambulance first aid,  conducted the classes.  .'  Scout trips  The Elphinstone and Sechelt  Districts' of the Boy Scouts  plan a preparatory course, towards the Golden Arrow, for  patrol leaders. The training  course will be held April 16 and  17 at Sakinau Lake. Several  candidates from Port Mellon  will be selected to participate.  Also planned for the near future is a field trip for the  scouts, which will involve a  visit to Vancouver International  Airport and Vancouver City  Police Headquarters.  During the Easter vacation,  the Brownies, Guides and Cubs  will view the attractions at  Stanley Park and participate in  a guided tour of the Dairyland  plant in Vancouver.  A    meeting    on    Wednesday  'evening last ��� week   at   Gibsons  ^Health   Centre  called  by  Eric  cPrittie,  chairman  of the  area  water committee    decided    to  jseek area-wide support for a pub  "lie meeting to which Hon. TDan.  ; Campbell minister of municipal  Taffairs will be invited.     y  'y-OpC Mr. Campbell -has ysignified  ic--a^^interiti6in"or doing^whakhe  that   it   seems  some time the  likely   that   for  Powell    River  can towards assisting the area  in its problems and a letter  read at the meeting from Mr.  Campbell revealed- that/���his department is only too willing to  help on any district-wide organization but it would be up  to the public to show its intent. '  Mr. Campbell also suggested  area would have to be disassociated from the area Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet and if  it would facilitate the formation of a regional district this  would not be a drawback with  the department.  He further wrote that when  the house./session was over "if :  representatives from the" vari-  our parts of the area could be  interested he thought his department would have no objections to moving in the area with  necessary instructions as to  what would be needed for the  years that lie ahead.  Members of the committee on  hearing the letter felt that the  situation had taken a turn for  the better and that now it was  up to the numerous organizations in the area to select a  representative and when government officials come into the  area to be available for a meeting at which problems concerning the area could be discussed.  Water was still regarded as  being the prime objective of the  committee whether through a  regional district or any other  governmental type of organization. Discussion which followed  covered many angles of the  water situation and possibilities that could be achieved.  In closing, Mr. Prittie, reminded the meeting that it was  now up to the public and organizations to show Victoria officials that they were interested.  ARTHUR  DELAMONT  At the Centennial ball, April  22 in Government House at Victoria, Council Chairman Wes.  and Mrs. Hodgson and Councillor Sam and Mrs. Fladager will  attend as representatives of  Gibsons. Those taking part in  the ball must wear old-time  costumes. Mrs. Hodgson  (above) will be wearing net  and brocade dress while Chairman Hodgson will wear a dress  suit of that period with a red  cummerbund. Councillor and  Mrs. Fladager will wait until  they reach Victoria to arrange  their costumes.  Thrift sale  Women of the United Church  will hold a thrift sale of clean  used clothing, white elephants  and unwanted articles at the  church hall on Friday, April 29,  starting at 10 a.m.  As one man's trash is often  treasure for another donations  of articles would be appreciated. Donations can be left at the  homes of Mrs. J. H. Warwick,  1602 Marine Drive; Mrs. E.  Forbes, 1721 Seaview or Mrs.  R. Boyes, 1306 Bay road, phone  886-7798.  MRS. E. R. SORENSEN  Mrs. Elizabeth R. Sorensen, a  former Gibsons resident, died  April 10 in Vancouver. She was  81 and came to Gibsons about  25 years ago and was prominent in the work of the Women's  Institute. Mrs. Sorensen was  the wife of Lars Sorensen and  their home was on North Road  near the Hopkins end. They  grew strawberries for the co-op  jam factory.  Lents to  join tours  A Centennial project to make  British Columbia students more  aware of their province is announced by L. J. Wallace, general chairman of the British  Columbia Centennial committee.  Named the British Columbia  Youth Travel program, the  plan will enable approximately  600 grade 11 students from 200  schools to visit other areas in  the province in 1966, British Columbia's Centennial year, and  another 600 in 1967, Canada's  Confederation Centenary, Every  school in British Columbia, enrolling grade 11 students will  be invited to participate.  In September, 12 provincial  semL-finalists will appear on  two programs originating in  Vancouver.. Six finalists will  then perform on the grand final  program, telecast from the  stage of the Queen Elzabeth  Playhouse, and will compete  for $1,000 first prize, $500 second prize and $150 third prize.  Fish aplenty  There has been good fishing  during the past week. Guy Winning of Ole's Cove reports his  guests went home happy with  nice catches of blueback and  jack springs.  Probably none was more surprised than Mr. R. K. Jones of  Vancouver who was pulling in  his line as he passed over the  shallows in front of the resort  when he landed a 27V6 lb.  spring, in four feet of water and  with 10 feet of line out.  Good fishing was also reported from the Sargeant Bay area.  Mr. Larry Reardon of Seacrest  landed a 50-pound cod as well  as some nice bluebacks.  i i��m��uumwm��muu����uuuuuu����uiummmuuiuuttut����H  JOINT O.A.P.O.

Governmental interest is now being shown in this area and  if sufficient pressure is exerted in the right direction we might  find our steps set towards getting a sufficient water supply, garbage disposal and the needed fire protection.  Another point in our favor is that Hon. Dan Campbell has  swung towards the point of view that the area Port Mellon to  Jervis Inlet is a geographical entity arid has little in common  with Powell River.  Last Wednesday night's meeting in Gibsons attended by  members of the water committee for the area under chairmanship of Eric Prittie, faced a much more pleasant situation as  outlined in a letter from Mr. Campbell who wrote that if Mr.  Prittie's committee could arrange to have sufficient leading citizens available at a public meeting he would be at thejr disposal  to inform them of government intentions and how he could be of  some use to them.  It is now up to local organizations and otherjs in a position  to express an opinion, to get out and hear Mr. Campbell and then  make the first move towards achieving what they desire, a good  water supply, garbage collection and fire protection along with  other necessities of life in a growing community.  If the rate of growth continues each year for the next ten  years there will be at least 1,000 mor\e new homes constructed.  But they will need water, garbage disposal! and decent fire protection. The fundamental is water. Without it building a home  would become a hazardous proposition.  The area in an average year has a precipitation of something like 56 inches. Visualize what 56 inches of-water would be  like spread out at any one time. True not. all of this water can  be placed under control but we should be able to place some of  it, enough to supply the people all the water, they want. We lack  the means to conserve water. Surely-in this dynamic age there  must be a way to do it. Any area needs roads and water. It is  up to us ��� every one of us to stir things up so that we get the  water supply we need. The rest would follow automatically.  Those baggy pants  Research does not reveal whence came the idea that a man's  pants had to have a line down the fore and aft. Anyway you look  at it, it's a senseless custom. A man's pants should be baggy,  loose and comfortable. Pants take a lot of abuse in the course of  a day and functionally speaking, they should not be required to  have a crease.  However, since fashion seems to rule us with an iron fist, the  recent news item to the effect that a cloth material has been  evolved which will keep a permanent crease is a welcome augury  of the future. A permanent crease will take a load from a man's  mind. When they get around to unbreakable shoe laces, shoes  that keep a shilne and trouser seats that, don't, the clothes problem for a man will be greatly simplified. ��� Contributed.

M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  Private members can draft  laws. This the back bencher  does in the form of a private  members' bill. Most week days,  during the supper hour, 6 to 7  p.m., these same M.P.'s are  to be heard debating the legis-  . lation in the house of commons.  A private members' bill,; if it  is passed by the house, becomes  law just as a government bill  does. But its chances of passing  are about one' in a hundred.  Why? Because the time allotted for debate is short. If the  speeches go on past 7 p.m.  it is said to be talked out. It  drops to the bottom of a long  list of bills each of which comes  up for discussion in its turn.  .Private members' bills, while  they rarely become law, are  still important; They indicate  what individual MP's are thinking: They also test public  opinion. Those for which there  is widespread support also  catch the eye of the government. The government, with  more time for debate, can then  put its own, and often much  improved bill, through the commons.  There are no less than 115  private members' bills on the  order paper. They deal with a  great variety of subjects���sub  jects ranging from divorce to  family planning and from government support for the price  of hogs to,a limit on the amount  of money that can be spent at  election time.  One bill would give a housewife 72 hours in which to  change her mind after she had  accepted a set of encyclopaedia  or a cupboard of dishes from  a door to door salesman. Another would limit the circumstances under which wire tapping is permissible. A third  would retire members of Parliament at 75. Many of these are  good ideas. However the exact  form of the bill or its effect  in practice may be such as  to disqualify it in its original  form.  Many are complex. A few are  relatively straight forward. Recently a simple bill changed the  name of Trans Canada Airlines  to Air Canada. It passed all  three readings within the hour  arid became law. .Please note,  however, that these bills cannot involve the government, directly, in the expenditure of  money. Any private members'  bill which effects the budget is  out of order.  Often bills deal with the.same  subject matter. Frequently  the impression that most private members' bills are a waste  these are grouped together and  sent to a standing committee  of the commons. There they  are written into a single bill.  Experts can also be called and  the committee members can  make further changes. Our divorce bills are being drafted  in this way. So better legislation will come back to the commons. There, after third reading, it can become the law of  the land.  From  all  this one  may get  of time.  Not so. Their subject  2 ,    Coast News, April 14, 1966.  matter is often important. If  there is widespread public support it will be dealt with in one  way v or another. Parliament  may be slow, to act and individual members of parliament  may not get all the credit that  is their due. But if a bill generates enough interest in the  house of commons the private  member of parliament can  make laws with every bib as  much effect as the cabinet can.  N.

There is some mention of the  history of skiing and how it  started in Scandinavia as a useful thing, but the emphasis in  this book is on skiing for fun,  and it is loaded with interesting and helpful black and white  pictures.  4 \  This is riot a literary work, it  is solely informative, but it is  not only enlightening but interesting as well.���Percy Maddux.  the  dispensation  of the  grace  of God.

Agent for . .,. .   ���  Johnson Outboard Motors  WE SERVICE EVERYTHING  WE SELL  CHAIN SAW  CENTRE  SECHELT ��� Ph. 885-9626  Editot: Regarding the news  item in your paper of March  24th, referring to Kitsilano  Boys' Band and , the advertisement, in the same issue which  states, First Time Ever on the  Peninsula, This is a slight  error.  ^Arthur Delamont with all  members of his Kitsilano Boys'  Band, gave two concerts in  June; 1946, at Sechelt. The band  arrived on Union Steamships  S.S. Cynthia, Sat., June 20 and  gave a wonderful concert in the  Union Steamships dance hall  on the waterfront at Sechelt  and on the next day Sunday  gave an open air band concert  in the Sechelt Park. I happen  to have a movie film showing  the boys playing with Arthur  Delamont conducting in the  park.  The late Ernest Parr-Pearson who was president of the  Sechelt board of Trade, and the  writer who at that time was  secretary of the board contacted Mr. Delamont and he immediately consented to come to  Sechelt with his full band to  help a very worthy cause.  At the concert Saturday evening Mr- Delamont auctioned  post cards of the band starting  at $50 then dropping the price  to $40 then $30 and at $25 each.  Several persons in the audience  bought postcards, ��� practically  the whole audience purchased  a post card at $5 and $2.50  each. A large sum of money  was raised for this worthy  cause:  The boys were given room  and board by several of the  residents inthe district. We had  11 at our home. Mr. Delamont  and several of the boys "stayed  at the hotel on the waterfront.  The band left on the Sunday  evening for Vancouver via S.S.  Cynthia. The Kitsilano Boys'  Band is world renowned and 1  do hope the auditorium in the  Gibsons High School- will, be  filled to capacity to hear this  wonderful band.���W. J. Mayne,  Sechelt, B.C.  Editor: A longtime resident of  Aldersprings Road, I would like  to say I am happy that at last  we have our road black-topped.  I read in the Coast News that  five roads are to be paved this  year and the only one protested  was Aldersprings. I wonder  why?  Over the years, anytime the  Village Council proposed doing  any work on our road, immediately up went screams of protest against wasting money on  a road that goes nowhere.  This is a dead end road. It  has been here 20 years and the  10 houses have been here, more  than 15, so I think we are about  due for some paving, or are we  expecte'd to tramp through the  mud till the end of time?  Now let's look at some of the  other roads:  The Stewart Road:I wonder  aow many houses were there 15  years ago, one? I suppose it  could be called a through road,  but I'm afraid it will be a few  years before any but the few  residents on it will use it as  such.  The next is Wyngaert Rd. The  section of this road at present  being blacktopped did not even  exist 15 years ago, but as it will  serve the apartment house and  some business establishments  we mustn't complain about that.  Now the O'Shea Rd. This road  runs straight into the woods, it  has about half a dozen nice new  houses and has just been paved.  No complaints here.  So that leaves the complaints  only against Aldersprings Road.  Why? The residents of Aider-  springs are very pleased that  Mr. Feeney and his 'ellow commissioners ignored these selfish  protests and paved our road.  ���John L. Gordon.  (Incidentally, we've had a  number of visitors inspecting  that infamous Aldersprings road  since the paving.)  Editor: I am relieved to  know that the Village Council  has shelved plans for expanding to include Reed Road at  Granthams. Perhaps this area  looks desirable on a map but  as a resident who has been  over the whole area thoroughly  I cannot understand why the  village would ever consider it.  The Department of Highways  have petitions dating back  many years for Harvey Road  for example and still cannot  afford to finish the road all  the way. They do one half and  I have inherited the job of  maintaining the other half from  an old neighbor who finally retired to Vancouver after working on it for 49 years.  I have accepted this as the  price I must pay for voting  against Social Credit but , I  would have to lay down my  shovel if Gibsons was responsible for this piece of so called  road. Perhaps by the time I  am 84 the problem will be  solved.  ��� (Mrs.) I Green.  CO-OPERATION HELPS  Due to the co-operation of  all concerned, the March 30th  Bake and Housewares sale,  sponsored by the Port Mellon  Hospital Auxiliary, was a financial success. Every item was  quickly sold, realizing $66.75  towards the auxiliary working  -fund.  Miss Eva Alice Goodwin  The funeral of Miss Eva Alice  Goodwin took place at Gibsons  on Monday, April 4. Miss Goodwin, who was 93, came to Roberts Creek about 45 years ago  to property far up the Elphinstone Road, the original land of  A. J. Charman. TPaere she cared for the children of her sister who taught school.  For long periods they were  isolated, particularly in the  winter. With no transportation,  and little in the way of delivery  service, most of their supplies  were brought up the hill on foot.  A few years later the family  moved down to the highway.  When the children grew up  and left the district, Miss Goodwin had a cottage built for herself and lived there alone until  a niece, Mrs. Nancy Lenfesty,  insisted that she spend the winters in Vancouver with her.  Each year since, with one or  another member of her family,  Miss Goodwin has spent part of  the summer here. Until a couple  of years ago her embroidery  work has taken prizes at the  local exhibition. Gentle, patient  and kind, Aunty Goodwin will  be sadly missed by many friends  She leaves two sisters, Ethel,  of Christ Church, England; Annie V. Barnes, Vancouver; nephew, Sgt. Charles Bames, Comox, nieces* Hazel, Mrs. F.  Kilbride; Nancy Lenfesty, Vancouver; Lily, Whalley, B.C.

Two other British Columbia  writers, Paul Bjaransson and  Mildred Valley Thornton, were  also  honored.  President Harold Griffin, in  making the. association's first  annual awards of framed engrossed scrolls, emphasized the  words: For a distinguished and  enduring contribution to Canadian Writing; the terms distinguished and enduring having  been chosen with great care to  designate   the  requirements   to  Elves six  act story  After the parents had been  7 welcomed to the enrolment  March 28 at the First Roberts  Creek Pack, the Elves Six  very nicely acted their adaptation of the Brownie Story.  Tweenies Pauline Smith and  Connie Cole in turn walked up  the stepping stones to the magic  pool circled with pretty spring  flowers and then over to the  toadstool, made their promise  and were welcomed into the  pack with a grand howl.  Games, songs and fun were  had at pow wow, with pictures  taken to send to a Brownie  Pack in England with whom  the Brownies hope to correspond. The pleasant afternoon  was closed with a prayer and  Brownie Taps.  Surprise  celebration  To celebrate the 50th wedding  anniversary friends of Council  Chairman Wes. and Mrs. Hodgson met in the Welcome Cafe,  Gbsons, Tuesday, April 5. The  event, a surprise to Mrs. Hodgson, featured^ steak dinner  with toasts :and replies along  with a skit taking the diners  back to the more tender days  of a couple back in England  who turned out to be the honored guests.  Afterwards the party adjourned to the Hodgson home  where more visitors arrived to  offer their congratulations to  Mr. and Mrs. Hodgson.  Nurse advises  Miss Douglas, Public Health  Nurse, in an interesting talk before members of the Parents'  Auxiliary at Roberts Creek  School, on Monday, explained  various services of her department. Her address touched on a  wide range of subjects from  communicable diseases to sex  conditions in the schools.  She showed an electric device  now being used to detect ring  worm and other skin diseases.  Also she demonstrated the  means of checking vision and  hearing in school children.  Recital;  Under the auspices of Mt. Elphinstone Chapter, OES, pupils  of Mr. and Mrs. C. Sykes, Mrs.  H. Coupland and Mrs. N. Douglas will be heard in concert at  Elphinstone Secondary School  on Saturday, April 23, at 7:45  pm. Tickets can be purchased  from Mrs. Douglas and Mrs.  Skyes, and at the door. They  are 50c for adults and 25c for  children. Proceeds will go to  the Cancer project.  68 PERCENT  At the first week in April the  1966 Red Cross campaign for  funds stands at 50 percent of  the 87 branches reporting with  68 percent of the $205,100 quota  reached. This is approximately  the goal attained in 1965 at the  same date. Last year the Red  Cross campaign reached its objective for the first time since  1953, and raised over $50,000  more than the previous year  The objective of the 1986 campaign, including 15 United Appeal areas, to which 22 Red  Cross branches are affiliated is  $664,377.  be fulfilled by any writer qualifying for the  award.  Paul Bjaransson read from  his books selected translations  of Icelandic poetry. Mildred  Valley Thornton, whose book,  Indian Lives and Legends has  just been published by Mitchell  Press, Vancouver, thanked the  association for having chosen  her as one to be honored, and  reminisced some of her experiences during her more than 30  years of painting illustrious native Indians of Western Canada.  Harold Griffin spoke on behalf of Hubert Evans, who  could not attend, tracing, from  a friendship of more than 30  years, the sense of commitment  that has emerged from this  noted writer. Mist on the River;  he said, is undoubtedly the  classic interpretation of the  dilemma which faces each rising generation of British Columbia native Indian boy ������ and  girl. All of the four writers being honored, he added, made  distinguished and enduring contributions to Canadian writing  partly, at least because they  entered upon their careers wiih  a sense of commitment to a  cause; all were concerned with  the psyche of individuals and  the ethos of peoples.  Les Peterson, of Gibsons,  spoke on behalf of Bertrand  Sinclair, also unable to attend.  Outlining the life and works of  this dean of living Canadian  writers, he pointed out that  Sinclair was first not only to  explain our province of British  Columbia to the world, but also  first to write of the Western  fcowboy, of the days when  ranges  were  still unfenced.  The Sinclair philosophy, he  said, as enunciated in his works  and elucidated by his life, is based on principles regulating man  in his environment. A man  must not be permitted, according to this philosophy, to gain  without personal and direct involvement in his enterprise,  and he must not gain by desecration of nature's balances,  the requisites of beauty.  On the day following the ceremony, Les Peterson took Bertrand Sinclair his award and  presented it to him, at his home  in Pender Harbor, on behalf of  the Canadian Authors Association.

Blzck, F,ovincial Secretary Quotes about about an elementary field trip  On March 29, 19 grade 7 students from Roberts Creek and  60 grade sixers from Gibsons  made a field trip to Vancouver..  Leaders were Mr. J. Ayris and  Mr. A. Merling assisted by four  PTA members.  First stop was at the Maritime Museum where no more  than a squint at the famous St.  Roch was possible as its A-  frame building is not yet complete, but the museum fascinated many of the children. From  here to the aquarium and zoo  in Stanley Park and in- the af  ternoon to the B.C. Building at  the PNE and to Dairyland's milk  plant in Burnaby. On their return the students described what  was most interesting to them  personally.  Maritime Museum  The one exhibit I enjoyed  most was a scale model of .the  ship the Empress of Asia.

One girl wrote that when they  got on the ferry to come home,  'we sat in the lobby and took  our shoes off because they were  swollen and my feet had blisters  all over. We had just got comfortable and it was time to go  to the bus." '..'���,,  Visiting the Groundhog: We  were just going past the parking lot. I was looking through  the window when suddenly I  saw a man feeding a little  groundhog. The first thing I  did when I got outside was to  buy some popcorn to feed the  groundhog. When I got to the  stump he lived in I whistled to  get him out. He looked like a  little old man with long whiskers. When I tossed some popcorn he'd sniff it but didn't  eat it. I got a peanut butter  sandwich out and tossed it to  him. To my amazement he picked it up and began to eat it.  I certainly enjoyed seeing this  little creature.���Martin Kiewitz.  The Challenger Relief Map:  This map is made of over one  million pieces of plywood and  was constructed by Mr. Challenger of Vancouver. Every  piece was cut to fit. The rivers  and roads and railways are  marked with colored wires. The  boundary line is made of rubberized plastic laid on the map.  Mt. Fairweather is the highest  mountain and is shared with  Alaska. The main cities are  marked with little signs. A  moving bridge called a gantry  takes you over the map and a  . guide points out the places and  you can ask questions. The map  is in the B.C. building on the  P.N.E. grounds. It is a very  nice thing to see. ��� Danny  Weinhandl.  The Aquarium's faults and  non-faults: In my opinion the  aquarium.is really not too well  planned.

The secretary reported that while some  members had moved away and  had withdrawn their shares, assets totalled $169|^6'5.80.

Wood  extra thanks for' providing a  fine lunch.

Elementary  school choirs were able to attend. Much of the program.was  probably unfamiliar to most of  the audience but the blending  in pleasant harmony with ever-  changing musical patterns held  everyone's interest.  The 40 voice choir was directed by Dr. Bernard Regier and  a smaller ensemble by Mr.  Lawrence By Marsh. The choir  paid the students the compliment of presenting their adult  repertoire.
