Gold Cords awarded  '"' ������h'jSr. Ed Burritt, president of.  the Gibsons Parent-Teacher-, as^;:  sociation,: speaking on the presentation of Gold Cords, the doctorate of Guiding, to Sandra  Ward and Brenda Weinhandl,  said that the Boy Scout and  Girl Guide movement has always been in the forefront of  organizations which train young  people for service. He mentioned the Company of Young Canadians as indicative of youth's  awareness of the need for service to others.  To qualify for a Gold Cord a  girl must be a first class Guide,  have acknowledged all round  proficiency in domestic and  household skills, woodcraft and  camping, citizenship, world  knowledge and first aid, ' and  have undertaken service projects in her own community.  Sandra Ward and Brenda  Weinhandl are both active members of their church, have taught  Sunday school and sing in the  choir. They have helped in such  community projects as the PTA  scholarship fund, removing  rocks from Brothers Park, moving day at Roberts Creek Library and organizing. the annual  Guide cookie sale.  Sandra and Brenda will be  among seven Guides from this  district who will go to Victoria  at Easter to receive their Gold  Cord Certificates from Lt.-Gov.  Major General Pearkes at Government House. The others aro  Erica Ball, Patti Gust, Wendy  Inglis, Merrilee Olson and Frances West.

Frances Finlayson, Patti Gust, Colleen Husby, Linda Mcintosh, Eileen McKenzie,. Carol Olson, Denise  Quarry, Phyllis Thatcher, Frances Volen, Sandra Ward, Brenda Weinhandl and Shari Wingrave. These awards were made  following the Brownie Fly-up.  Council Chairman and Mrs.  Wes Hodgson with the Guide  and Brownie leaders of the Elphinstone District were honored  by the parents of the girls at  luncheon at the home of Mrs.  W. Weinhandl last Wednesday.  Mr. Hodgson presented Thank-  you pins to Mrs. B. Allen, Guide  Captain and Mrs. M. Wheeler,  Brown Owl, saying how happy  he was to have the opportunity  to officially thank the leaders  of the Girl Guides on behalf of  the village of Gibsons for their  work helping the girls prepare  themselves for useful lives as  world citizens and to have fun  in the learning. The girls do  much more than sell cookies  once a year and the general  public often fails to realize how  much time and patience goes  to the successful running of a  youth organization such as the  Girl Guides.  Mrs. A. Labonte,' divisional  commissioner, who has served  the association in many capacities in the past 12 years was  the recipient of a cut glass vase  as a token of gratitude from  the parents. The leaders' appreciation was expressed by  Roberts Creek Brown Owl, Mrs.  V. Farr. A business meeting of  the  auxiliary followed.  Two bonfires Friday  Boy. Scouts will light 200 bonfires throughout British Columbia including one floating in  Victoria Inner Harbor, at precisely 9:30'p.m., March 11, to  mark the official start of the  province's 1966 Centennial celebrations. The date chosen is 116  years to the day when British  rule was established in the Pacific Northwest.  Weather permitting Gibsons  Scouts will have their bonfire  in the vicinity of Gospel Rock  on Gower Point road and Sechelt Scouts will light theirs on  Mission   Point,   Wilson   Creek,  both starting at approximately  9 p.m.  Bonfire time will be synchronized with a ceremony in the  Empress Hotel, when a lighted  torch is carried by a Boy Scout  to the Government street causeway floats, where he will board  a whaler rowed by Sea Cadets,  and light a fire in the Inner  Harbor.  In the background, 5 (B.C.)  Field Battery, RCA will fire 17  guns, reproducing the salute  fired in 1866 when the proclamation was read uniting the Crown  Colonies  Hospital district switch announced  *   *   *  *   *   *  Municipal ministry takes over  The four Hospial' Improvement  District No. 31 zone annual  meetings have been announced  by trustees to report on the  year's operation and to elect  two trustees to fill terms of office that have expired.  The meetings which start at  8 p.m., will be held in zone one  at Granthams Landing Community hall, zone two* at Gib-'  sons Elementary School, zone  three in Sechelt Elementary  School library and zone four in .  Madeira Park Elementary  School activity room.  The   district  was   advised  in  September 1965 that under new  legislation   the   department   of  municipal   affairs   will  assume  supervisory    control    over    the,  district, the comptroller of wa-;  ter rights relinquishing such du- ������;���  ties from a date, to be announc-7  ed in due course. The trustees"  have expressed to the comptroller of water rights and to theV  deputy minister of lands and forests on behalf of the ratepayers <���  of the district their appreciation7  for the assistance we have re-;  ceived over the past years from  the comptroller of water rights  and their regret that the friendly   and   useful   relationship   is?���  coming to an end. It is hoped,  however, that the close co-operation   which   existed   with   the  Water Rights Branch, can also;  be established with the depart-?.;  ment of municipal affairs  and  the trustees will not spare any  efforts  to  succeed in this  en- ���  deavour. .���������������,  On last year's activities, * th<0-  director's report outlines *t&��;  annual zone meetings held;early  in 1965, which filled the vacancies on the board of trustees,  which for 1965 was composed  as follows: Mr. J. E. Parker  (zone 3) chairman; Mr. F. West  (zone 2) secretary-treasurer;  Mr. M. J. McMillan (zone 1),  Mr. N. R. McKibbin and Mr. F.  Stenner (zone 2), Mr. H. B.  Gordon (zone 3), and Mr. S. A.  McDonell   (zone   4).   With   the  Seek teachers  Trustees from 70 school  boards in all parts of the province will be gathering on the  campus of the University of  British Columbia on March 15  and the University of Victoria  March 16 for Trustee Day, the  annual meeting with education  students. This year for the first  time students from Simon  Fraser Unversity will be taking part in the meetings at  U.B.C.  Attending from Sechelt district school board will be Gordon E. Johnson, superintendent,  Mrs. Celia Fisher and Mr. Don  Douglas, trustees and Mr. P.  C. Wilson secretary-treasurer  of the board also Mr. W. L.  Reid, principal of Sechelt Elementary school.  BAND DEMONSTRATION  A band demonstration. for  their parents will be given by  Mr. K. Headley's instrumental  pupils from Langdale, Gibsons  and Roberts Creek schools in  the Gibsons Elementary gym at  7 p.m. March 16. All interested  are welcome to attend. A similar demonstration is being arranged for Sechelt students.  coming zonal meetings the  terms of office of Messrs. Gordon and West will come to an  end and notice of election has  been given for the two zones  concerned to fill the vacancies.  In conforming to resolutions  passed during the last annual  ratepayers' meetings the trustees advised the board of St.  Mary's Hospital about the rate-.  payers' request that a continuous care institution be added to  the existing hospital facilities.  The hospital board has agreed  to study the matter and a construction committee has been  formed to submit a brief to the  provincial authorities and to ob  tain   approval  in  principle   for  such a project.  In conformity with previous  practice and to assure close liaison between hospital authorities  and the District two HID trustees have been invited again by  the hospital board to participate  in the activities of the construction committee. The District  has also agreed to assist in defraying the initial expenses for  the brief to the government and  have set aside the sum of $175  for this purpose in the 1965 accounts. At this time no estimates  are available about the costs to  the taxpayers for such a project  but from information on hand of  Paving for Gibsons  Gibsons municipal council at  last week's meeting awarded a  $10,129 contract for paving to  the H. Williamson company of  Haney. This company also did  last year's paving for the village.  This year paving will be done  on Alderspring road, Stewart  Road, Wyngaert Road, Gower  Point road and O'Shea road.  Canon Greene appeared to explain what his objectives were  in connection with senior citizen homes. He sought council's  support and left a similar brief  to the one he delivered to Sechelt's council a couple of weeks  ago. .Gibsons council will give  his brief consideration at another meeting.  Councillors Fladager and  Drummond reported on their  visit to a Planning association  meeting in Vancouver where  they talked with various officials  on planning subjects and arranged to have Mr. R. W. Collier  of the extension department of  UBC come to Gibsons and give  council the benefit of his experience in town planning.  Attention was drawn to the  fact that the request for the removal of deadheads in the harbor and vicinity had been made  to the public works department.  Councillor Fladager thought that  while the Essington was in the  vicinity the department should  be notified and see that something can be done about it now.  One vote only allowed  As returning officer for Referendum No. 8, Peter C. Wilson,  school district secretary-treasurer, has taken legal advice on  the question can an owner-elector owning property in more  than one constituency within a  school district vote more than  once on a money bylaw?  The legal advice received is  as follows:  "Section 219 (3) of the Public Schools act provides that,  "The provisions of this act in  respect of an election at large  conducted by a board apply,  mutatis mutandis to the voting  on a proposed bylaw or question to which the assent of the  owner-elector is required.'  "Part HI of the Public Schools  act sets out the procedure for  an election at large. Section 35  (e) of Part III provides that,  'subject to the provisions of this  act, the provisions of Part III  of the Municipal Act, except  sections 49, 50, 51, 52 and 53 apply mutatis mutandis,' which  means, with necessary changes.  ���Eection 76 (1) of Part III of  the Muncipal Act provide that,  'An elector is entitled at the  same election to only one vote  for as many candidates as are  to be elected. . ."  In the board's opinion, it is  proper to conclude that the  owner-elector owning property  in the municipal village and rural area of a school district is  entitled to only one vote on the  same question submitted by a  board of school trustees.  Accordingly, he has ruled that  any owner-elector has only one  vote on the question, regardless  of how many separate pieces of  property may be owned in various parts of the school district.  Satires raise howls  r  PUBLIC INVITED  At Thursday night's meeting  of (he Kiwanis club the public  is invited to hear, after 8 p.m.,  members of the school board  referendum committee explain  to the club what the referendum  means to the community. The  meeting will, be held at the Peninsula Hotel and following the  business meeting which will be  over by 8 p.m., members of the  public can attend.  mwninii .>���  Port Mellon Scouts and Cubs  in their annual family get-togethers in the Community Hall  have for the last two years developed lampoons and satires  of TV advertising and their topics at Saturday night's event  showed an improvement over  previous years. What they might  produce next year depends on  the amount of ingenuity they absorb dn the meantime. Their  ..chief presentation concerned  joining the mainland to Vancouver Island back in 1866.  Mr. J. Willis was chairman of  the gathering which saw about  100 parents, Scouts, Cubs, officials and visitors partake of dinner first, followed by the presentation of Scout and Cub  awards capped by the stage presentations of both branches of  the Scout movement. Mr. W.  Victor provided pre-ddnner music and accompaniment to stage  presentations on his Wurlitzer  organ.  Rev. H. Kelly spoke on the  Scout program and the community. He outlined how service to  the community was the rent we  pay for our stay here on earth.  Our disorganization in today's  organized living was something  we had to live with. Back dn his  boyhood days before psychologists, delinquents were called  just bad boys. Today we have  applied psychology which is all  right "if you have the right  end in view." He likened the  iScout movement to the old  Greek Olympic theme where the  torch was carried on from hand  to hand.  These are the awards presented: Queen Scout Michael  Willis, forester, forest conservation, dispatejh rider, hiker  and winter scouting; Queen  Scout Jim Rudolph, forester,  forest conservation, dispatch  rider, hiker and winter scouting; Norman Shepherd, forester,  forest conservation, swimmer,  canoeman, pathfinder, entertainer.  David Davies, camp cook,  athlete and pathfinder; Jim  Brandon, and David Mueller, artist; Ricky Mueller, athlete;  Ricky Lucas, bronze swimmer,  artist; John Barnes, pathfinder  and Paddy Nelson, pathfinder.  Cubs: First aid to Tracey Gallier, Philip Madison, Steven  Littlejohn, Neil Booth, Gary  Davies and Toymaker to Teddy  Hume.  similar institutions in other districts, it is believed that it could  be financed by an additional Vz  or 1 mill to the Improvement  District tax levies, if the project could be started soon.  The financial statements for  1965 show that the district ended the year with a surplus of  $166, which wiped out the deficit carried forward from previous years and leaving a surplus in the accounts of $113,  which has been earmarked for  general administrative purposes  in 1966. The revenues required  by the district for the servicing  of our long term debt and for  administration could be achieved by tax levies of 1.64 mills, a  reduction of .21 mill from the  previous year. Although the final assessment for 1966 will not  be available until some time after the courts of revision have  finished their hearings, the tax  levies for 1966 should not be  higher and most probably slightly lower than for 1965.  No increase in taxation is anticipated until after the continuous care project has materialized. Revenue of close to $1,000  from interest earned on temporary invested funds was made  available again as grants-in-aid  to the hospital, for additional  construction and equipment.  However this source of revenue  will not be available any longer, as all funds have now been  used up for construction of the  new hospital.  The balance sheet shows that  a total of $413,900 has been advanced to the hospital from long  term borrowings, which together with the  other grants-in-aid  from  various  sources of  about  $25,000 over the last few years,  were used-by the hospital"authorities   exclusively   within   the  framework    of    approved    construction   and   equipment   budgets. We have been.advised that  all construction bills have been  paid  and  that   the  BCHIS  has  completed the final construction  audit, which entitles the hospital  society  to receive  the  balance  of   the   federal   and   provincial  grants in the near future, which  have  meanwhile been financed  by bank borrowings. As soon as  the grants are received, the district will .be furnished with a final and audited construction state  ment,   the  highlights   of   which  will   be   included   in   our  next  annual  report for the information of the taxpayers.  The district's balance sheet  also shows that our long-term  debts have been reduced in 1965  by about $23,000 and stand now  at $366,600. Further redemptions  of about $25,000 are scheduled  for the current year.  The trustees advise the ratepayers that the close co-operation and liaison between the  district, government, hospital  board and administration has  been maintained during the  past year, which proved beneficial to all concerned and is  highly appreciated by the trustees.  Make change  The monthly meeting of the  Sechelt Girl Guide association  was held on Wednesday, March  2 at the home of Mrs. Charlotte  Jackson, with 13 members present. It was announced that the  provincial convention would be  held on April 20, 21, 22 at the  Royal Towers Hotel, New Westminster, but no definite decision was reached about delegates.  It was decided that next year,  instead of the annual mother  and daughter banquet, a Mother-  Brownie ��� evening be held in  February, and a Guide cookout,  hostessing their mothers some  time later in the year.  Mrs. T. Sigouin was presented with her membership pin by  Mrs. F. Newton. The next meeting of the association will be  held on April 6 at the home of  Mrs. Bud Fearnley at West Sechelt.

Could it be that the area struggle towards getting somewhere  on negotiations to provide ample water for the people now living  here and those who will come is going to follow the pattern experienced in strving to settle the garbage situation?  For a delegation from this area to be told, no matter how  kindly, that the area should be left to the old people, is a statement revealing top ranking ignorance of what is going on in this  area. For the last seven years more than 100 homes! a year have  been built. A good many of them were biiilt for new people coming in.  The days when the small creek type of water supply provide  ing water for those living on or near the creek have gone where  the larger bulk of population is concerned. It might be remembered by some people that the early days of West Vancouver  also brought forth the remark "leave <jLt to the old people."  Old people like others require water and have every right;  to add their voice to the requirement of this district wh.ich is that  the area is moving in to a water supply shortage. There ��s water  available but it must be controlled.  The delegates from the Sunshine Coast RDA group's water  committee journeyed to a Victoria appointment to be given a  reception which has been termed cool, a description regarded  as well-modified by the delegates.  If the water rights branch is there to assist those requiring  its services, havjing one's breath knocked out of one mentally is  not what can be regarded as assistance when a more] logical approach would be to explain department requirements. Perhaps  the area committee is marching on the wrong foot. If so it should  be the duty of department officials to do the job for which they  are paid ��� and that is to help and leave solar plexus punches  to those who box.  An essay by a carver  Carving at the table is a tradition that has persisted down  through the years. Just why the meat that has been handled and  cooked in the kitchen cannot be cut into portions before coming  to the table is a matter for psychologists to explore. Most women  say they like to see a man carve. They say it in the same tone  they use when they say they like to see a man smoke a pipe.  Technically it's easy to describe the process. Suppose a big  roasted chicken is on the platter. A man grabs a leg and tries to  cut it off at the joint. Three conditions may be present: the knife  may be dull; the meat may be tough, or the bfrrd skids on the  platter. As a man tugs and pulls that's the place for his- Wife to  say, "If you could only find the joint, it would come off very  easily."  It's expected that a man will knock some meat on the white  table cloth. He'll scatter crumbs of the dressing. A 12 year-old  daughter is always helpful with suggestions. The young sons  fight for the drumsticks. Yes, it's pleasant to see a man stand at  the head of the table and struggle through his job.  THE  COAST NEWS  Gibsons Landing Ratepayers  association urges examination  of the Mt. Elphinstone watershed with a view to future development.  Mr. A. E. Royce of the Vancouver Bank of Montreal will  replace J. E. P. Henniker at  Gibsons Landing bank. Mr.  Henniker will take a post in  the superintendent's department.

The education system in British Columbia is increasing so  rapidly in both size and complexity that Education Week,  which provides parents and  other interested persons with  an opportunity to examine the  system, has never been more  important, according to a statement by the Honorable L. R.  Peterson, Minister of Education.  Mr. Peterson's statement, issued in support of Education  Week, follows:  The theme of Education Week  1966 is Education, Gateway to  Progress, and nothing at this  stage of our development could  be more appropriate. In the modern age of increasing knowledge and rapidly advancing  technology not only our intellectual fulfilment but our economic survival as individuals  and as a nation depends on the  level of our educational attainment. Continued prosperity depends on increasing productivity more than anything else, and  productivity is directly related  to standards of training in all  fields ��� professional, vocational  and technical.  Knowing this, British Columbia has for several years,-devoted a major share of its provincial expenditure to improving its facilities and methods.  Consequently the system has in  creased so.rapidly in both size  and complexity that Education  Week, which provides parents  and other interested persons  with an opportunity to examine  the system, has never been  more important. I recommend  to all our citizens that they  make use of the occasion/The  old saying that education is  everybody's business has never  been more meaningful than it is  today.  In particular I.would like to  stress to parents with children  in junior secondary school the  importance of familiarizing  themselves with the educational roads that are open to students. There are half a dozen  optional programs in senior secondary school which lead to  employment in various endeavors or, preferably, to more advanced training at a vocational  school, university, regional college or institute of technology.  Every youngster should plan  to attend one, the selection being based on ability and inclination. It is a grave decision on  which parental guidance is  needed. That is why it is so  important for parents to examine the options in relation to  their own children, visit the  schools, talk to principals and  teacher-counsellors. The right  choice is your child's gateway  to progress.  Hospital benefits widen  A major expansion in the  out-of-province benefits provided under the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service is announced  by Hon. Eric Martin, minister  of hospital services.  For residents of the province  who are temporarily absent, it  extends the, present protection  period from three months following departure to the first  six months following departure  and this may be extended to  12 months by the Lieutenant.  Governor in Council.  The former maximum limit  of three months on the length  of hospital stay outside British  Columbia has been extended to  six months with a further six  months at the discretion of the  Lieutenant Governor in Council. In addition, persons leaving  British Columbia to reside else  where in Canada can now be  covered during a reasonable  travel period of up to one  month together with the following three month period during  which they are qualifying in  the other province..  The maximum rate of payment to hospitals outside Canada has been increased from  $12 a day to $25 a day for  necessary in-patient  care.  The  ^established  practice   of paying  ^gther provinces at the rate established within the province  (less a $1 per day) will be continued.  In addition, there are a number of changes made which will  contribute to an improved program of protection for qualified  residents   of British  Columbia  who are    temporarily    absent  from the province.  Irrigation via ARDA  An ARDA irrigation rehabilitation project has been approved for British Columbia.  Federal forestry minister  Maurice Sauve and provincial  agriculture minister Frank 'Richter have announced ARDA's intention to installa modern pressure irrigation and domestic water supply system in the Sion  Improvement district, near the  city of Grand Forks. Cost is to  be shared equally by the federal  government, the provincial government and the district.  It is proposed to construct  three separate systems drawing  water from drilled wells, to provide irrigation, garden and rural domestic water supply to 227  outlets servicing 832 acres.  The old irrigaton works were  abandoned and only limited irrigation from small sources of  water supply has been possible.  Likewise, the domestic supply  is from limited surface and  ground water sources.  The ARDA project will enable  the farmers to increase and stabilize their agricultural production by providing an adequate  irrigation water supply. In addition, 227 farms and smalHiold-  ing dwellings will be supplied  with domestic water.  Installation of the system,  comprising three separate wells,  distribution works and reservoir  facilities, is expected to take  two years.  The B.C. water resources service is to be responsible for implementing the project, while  the Sion Improvement district  will assume responsibility for  operation and maintenance of  the entire system.

A journey backwards into the  history of British Columbia and  a coastal trip along The Highway on the Sea from the southwest of the province to Alaska,  are featured in the Spring 1966  issue of Beautiful British Columbia Magazine now on sale  throughout   the   province.  Lead story in the quarterly  magasne, published by the department of recreation and conservation, deals with history  and was inspired by plans for  celebrations marking the union  in 1866 of the colonies of British Columbia, on the mainland,  and Vancouver Island. The  article is by Willard E. Ireland, provincial librarian and  archivist.  Mr. Ireland's story is illustrated with many color photographs showing the province as  it is today, and with several  reproductions of paintings showing British Columbia in its early  days.  In words and color photographs, the second story describes the Pacific    coast    of  British Columbia and the Alaska panhandle as it might be  seen by the vacationer from a  cruise ship or from the new  ferry Queen of Prince Rupert  which the British Columbia  Ferry Authority will put into  service in May between Kelsey  Bay on Vancouver Island and  Prince Rupert.  The special featured painting  in the latest issue of Beautiful  British Columbia Magazine is  by Jack Hambleton, of Kelowna  Coast News, March 10, 1966      3  A SQUARE BELL  The remains of an ancient  city have been discovered at  Rometta, near Syracuse, Sicily,  according to the foreign travel  department of the B.C.

Initiated by the Government of British Columbia      Approved by the Doctors of British Columbia-  The Honourable W. A. C. Bennett, LLD., Premier of British Columbia  ~", The Honourable Wesley D. Black, Provincial Secretary 4      Coast News, March 10, 1966  Letters to editor  Editor: Each year when the  last Christmas Seal appeal has  been stuffed, stamped and mailed, we of this Society can do little more than wait, and hope.  This year we waited and hoped with more than the usual  concern. The outcome of our  campaign was critical.  As you recall, last year our  Society went in the red. This  year, we were committed for  greater than ever expenditures  for medical research, Operation  Doorstep surveys, and public  education:  Whether we could meet these  commitments depended entirely upon public response to our  Christmas Seal appeal. And public response depends entirely  upon how often and how persuasively people are reminded to  support the campaign.  So, strictly speaking, once we  have mailed the last Christmas  Seal appeal letter, the rest is up  to you.  This year you handled your  part of our campaign as you've  never handled it before.  We don't yet have final provincial campaign totals, but it  looks as though the 1965 Christmas Seal campaign has gone  over the top. Your area Christmas Seal committee raised  ��1.898.79.  The satisfaction is ours, the  credit goes to you. On behalf of  the directors and staff of this  society and the Sechelt Christmas Seal committee, thank you  for a job well done.  ���R. A.

Way back in October the  club started rehearsals for an  April 2 performance of Robinson Crusoe.

It was decided to drop this  show and try one on a smaller  scale to accommodate the smaller cast. Jinx 2. Before the show  got underway, the director went  to hospital and by the time another director was found, there  were only five weeks left so a  new quickie show was started  but alas, Jinx 3, the club's pianist met with an unfortunate  accident and was unable to  play. Well, never say die. Another pianist was found but too-  late it was discovered than another event was booked for the  same night the Players were to  put on their show. Result, one  jinx too - many and no Spring  Show. However the show must  and will go on, a bright, witty-  musical comedy is being readied for the fall.

And yet, it takes only a minute���and  costs so little���to pick up your phone and make that beloved photo talk.  As the years pass by, the telephone becomes one of the  strongest links holding scattered families together. On birthdays and other special anniversaries���on occasions like Easter,  Mother's Day, Father's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas���  a long distance call is "the next best thing to being there."  If you travel frequently on business or have to spend.  extended periods away from home, be sure to arm yourself with  a B.C. TEL Long Distance Credit Card.

Although we are still enjoying  some summer weather and  peaches and apples, from the  trees in the garden, we had 13  inches of rain in 24 hours on  Thursday of last week and the  railway line to Whanganee was  cut and one farmer alone lost  over 500 sheep in the floods.  The other Sunday we drove  down to Rotorua which is 160  miles  south of here. It is the  centre of . the thermal region  and also the Muoni native cul-  tive village with a beautifully  ture. They have a complete na-  carved treaty on meeting house.  In the same area are the various hot pools of boiling mud  and water. The hottest pool  has a temperature of 215 deg.  F. The muoriis still use some  of the pools to cook their food.  At a place called Waineka the  N.Z.  government have  built a  thermal power station and use  the steam from the ground to  drive the turbines which generates the  electricity.  I have tried my hand at  deep sea fishing but only caught  a few King fish around 10 lbs.  each They are very similar to  our native Coho salmon. The  boat I went out on last season  amongst other fish caught a  343 lb. striped marlin,. 123 lb.  Tuna and a 718 lb. mako shark.  Prior to coming to N.Z. we  spent a year in Sunny Brisbane  in Queensland. While we were  there the temperature was 101  deg. and someone fried an egg  on the sidewalk.

There  are now 2,200 books in all these-  libraries. Gjibsons elementary  school is using classroom libraries until a planned library  room is added.  Books for all school libraries  are selected by teachers and  the librarian. A comprehensive  catalogue file is maintained at  the district library. The $2 per  pupil allowed each elementary  school goes for the purchase of  non-fictipjll books which are  permanenrin the school library  and a farther $2.50 is allowed  'in the "district library budget  for non-fiction and fiction books  for the circulating library.  Then $750 is alloted for encyclopedias for each elementary  school.  Other functions of the district  library include a filmstrip library. There are now 595 film-  strips in the pool to be loaned  out to teachers on request. Added to this are. 350 mo:ie films  and 400 film-strips which can  be borrowed on free loan.  A record collection suitable  for levels from kindergarten to  senior high (is being developed  and now 196 are available oh  loan to teachers. There are also  taped school broadcasts available.  The district library is also  developing a collection of picture sets, charts, posters and  booklets for use in the schools.  There is also a profess'onal library of books for teachers  now numbering 142, including  professional magazines and  booklets. The teachers and the  librarian decide on these purchases and the library budget,  including $66 a year from Sechelt Teachers association, covers the cost of these books.  Models of the human heart,  ear, eye tooth, dicot flower,  visible man, planetarium and  mineral collections, usually  quite expensive, are available  for all the schools. A recent development has been the purchase and framing of ej^cellent  art prints. Some 80 have been  purchased and 35'are now framed and ai-e hanging in various  schools and in the board offjice..  They are changed over by the  librarian giving the schools a  wide range of subjects.  Recommendations by the librarian include the aim of having ten books per pupil in each  elementary school which in  three years would require 10,-  000 more books by the end of  1968. He recommends doubling  the library budget for next  two years. He also recommends  using trained senior pupils to  do the simpler work in keeping  the library's collection well-  organized and thus relieve the  district librarian of work that  could be capably done by such  students in a one-day chore,  preferably a Saturday.  Store facelift  Roberts Creek's Seaview Market is celebrating the Centennial by undergoing a nice job of  facelifting.

GARGRAVE TO SPEAK  Gibsons and Area Chamber  of Commerce will have Tony  Gargrave MLA, as its speaker  for the March 21 meeting. The  time and place v/ill be announced later.  checked  Pender Harbour PTA met on  Feb. 15 in Madeira Park school's  new library, Thus affording an  opportunity for members to see  the library and examine the fine  selection Of books.  Mrs. Love reported on the  meeting of the executive with  Mrs. H. L. Steves, provincial  president of the PTA. Mrs.  Steves told of the PTA being instrumental in the retention of  music and art in the school  curriculum - and the starting of  school, libraries. The PTA also  instigated family allowances.  The principals of secondary  and primary schools discussed  their preparations for Education Week. During open house  at Madeira Park the PTA will  serve tea and hold a home bake  sale.  School representative Mr.  Malcolm introduced s c h o o 1  board members Mrs. C. Fisher,  Mr. C. Thorold and Mr. D.  Douglas to outline the referendum to be submitted shortly.  Further details concerning Elphinstone Secondary school were  given by Principal W. S. Potter.  On the basis of the figures  presented by the secretary-  treasurer, Mr. P. Wilson, construction of a building for the  school board will prove more  economical in the long run and  such a building seems reasonable since it would house special services such as the elementary supervisor, district librarian   and  music  supervisor.  The next PTA meeting will  be held at Pender Harbour Secondary school on March 14 at 8  p.m.  Pender soars  (By ALLAN WALLACE)  The Student's Council held an  assembly last week.

Arts to  aid Indians  Six of the seven newly elected directors of the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council met Fri. at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.  Dockar, Hopkins Landing. Concern was expressed in the lack  of representation from the north  of the area and agreement was  unanimous to co-opt, until such  time as an election in the area  is possible, two more directors  to represent the Indian and northern communities respectively.  The election of table officers  was postponed until the next  meeting.  Aims and purposes of the Arts  Council revealed the Arts Council is interested in anything and  everything which makes, life in  this district more enjoyable, the  quality of entertainment, public facilities, parks, playgrounds  and sidewalks; the conservation of places of historic interest, the preservation of our  beautiful countryside, pure water and air; the encouragement  and development of local crafts,  musical events, exhibitions,  workshops, and active support  for local groups, also the need  for farsighted community planning.  Mr. Arthur Lisch agreed to  make the preliminary enquiries  among the painters of the district for work to be hung at the  Arts Council's first exhibition  of local art in April. All those  interested should contact Mr.  Lisch, Franklin Rd., Gibsons,  Ph. 886-2961.

Fly-up for  Brownies  Despite the flu which cut  down the number of parents  present, nine of 11 Brownies  from the 1st and 2nd Gibsons  Pack were present Saturday for  their special day, the day for  v/hich they have been working  for two or three years, the day  on which they fly-up to Guides.  Even parents familiar with the  ceremony and whose own children are Guides find the shining Brownie faces, the excitement and suppressed gaiety an  uplifting and exhilirating experience.  The candlelight ceremony in  which each Brownie, one at a  time, leaves her friends in the  Pack, advances timidly to light  her candle from the steady  flame of her Guide sponsor's  candle and takes her place  among her new companions, is  watched with mixed emotions  by parents who are witnessing  another step in their daughter's  progress towards maturity, and  with envy by the younger Brown  ies.  Saturday was that special day  for Diane Fisher, Vicki Gust,  Anne Kendall, Teresa Labonte,  Robin Nygren, Kathy Potter,  Lori Scott and Janet Strom  who received their Brownie  wings with all tests passed, and  for Karen Endersby, Susan Peterson and Barbara Rhodes who  walked up to join the Guide  Company.  Eleven new members will  bring the Gibsons Guide company up to almost 40 members  and if the high standard of Guiding is going to be maintained it  is absolutely imperative that  new leaders be found for a second company. 8      Coast News, March 10, 1966 ^  Donate $1487  Mr. Jack Willis, president of  Port Mellon's Community association reports that grants in  1965 were made to the following organizations.

The first one is that I am much more aware of the female-  orientated curriculum we do have. I believe one reason for boys  making a poor showing in English is that the text books are just  not gauged to their interests. The shock of it comes to you when  you attempt to analyze a text book sentence such as "The pretty  flowers bloomed in the gay garden." English is hard enough to  master without having to use I. on a sentence such as this. Paragraph topics such as "Our Friend the Policeman," are enough to  discourage the creativity in any lad. The prescribed reading text  for grade seven is a difficult literature anthology and really not  suitable for a thirteen-year-old boy who always has had difficulties  with reading. Boys generally are not particularly good at spelling.  I think it is because the rules of phonics are meaningless to them.  Boys at this age like discipline. They respect a stem but friendly hand. Without girls around to necessitate two discipline standards ���'���- all are equal. Each boy knows he will be treated much the  same as his friend for a similar infraction.  Boys have definite ideas and will bluntly state them, I find,  with the girls missing. They like to discuss current events that  strike the masculine imagination. They will spend an enthusiastic  hour discussing Medicare, social reforms, and revolutions. They  want to be told facts, and they also want background about the  facts. They interrupt for this background, and constantly doubt my  word. This I find exciting. They seem to feel more free to speak  out and possibly be wrong, in front of their peers, than in front  of girls. They talk loudly, they walk loudly, they work loudly. I find  it to be an organized disciplined loudness. They fight each other  physically and verbally at the drop of a hat. -  Tempers flare, but quickly simmer. They cheer loudly or boo  during an argument. It is not bedlam. It is boys. They really like  to learn, in spite of themselves. I think they like to be forced to  learn, because their code seeme to say not to be interested in academic endeavours.  He likes to show what his growing body can do physically.  This is where he seems to show most success Twelve and thirteen  year old boys have done physical feats that leave me astounded.  Most of them are willing to try anything in the physical education  period. They can run a mile, rest five minutes, and run anolfcer  mile. They thrive on this personal success and feeling of exhilaration. ,  There is more opportunity to be successful in an all boys class.  Lessons, exercises, and discussion are geared entirely to them.  They really do not mind working hard when everyone else is "in  the same boat." Self discipline is easier when others are trying it  too They do feel defeated in the segregated groups. They treat  each other as equals. There are aio sweet little girls to crush their  efforts or to wipe success away from him. He is with men and I  think he likes it.  From six months observation, I could not definitely say an all  boy class is a solution to a learning problem, but I do feel that they  are doing better in this segregated group. To gather vital information, more children, teachers, schools and much more equipment  must be involved.  ���By John L. Ferrari, Grade 7 teacher, Gibsons Landing Elje-,  mentary School.  MAPLE SUGAR  (A story composed by two pupils who entered school September, 1965, aged six years.)  The man finds a tree.  He makes a hole in the maple  tree.  Then he hangs a pail under  the hole.  The sap runs out of the tree  into the pail.  He puts the sap into the big  pot.  He makes a fire under the  pot.  The sap cooks into syrup.  We put the syrup on the pancakes.  You cook it again.  Then you have maple sugar  candy.  It is good to eat.  ���Debbie Cromer and Dierdre  Kammerle,    Irvines   Landing Elementary School.  Teacher, Mrs. B. Fair.

HOW I WOULD LIKE  THE SCHOOL PLAYGROUND  ., - I think school children should  have more room to play, and  more interesting things to do,  when they play.  There is nature and there are  woods and animals all around  Us, but we have to play in a certain fenced-off area. I think  most children would rather play  hide-arid-go-seek, climb rocks,  make forts, pick buds and flowers and climb trees, than playing ori teeter-totters, swings,  slides, and jungle gyms or reading books.  If the children want to play  in the woods they should all  wear jeans (that are old), and  tee-shirts, for good clothing just  might get ripped.  Children learn more as they  romp through the woods instead  of just reading about what it  would be like.  ���By Joan Blomgren, Grade 5,  Roberts Creek Elementary  School.

Teachers' Federation has risen from a humble beginning forty-seven years ago to a professional organization representing some 15,600 teaches today.  Although it was originally organized as a federation of local  associations, the B.C.T.F. is now a provincial association. It has  kept the name 'Federation' but by law, since 1947, all teachers are  members of the B.C.T.F directly, and through it are members of  local associations.  On October 28, 1916, the B.C.T.F. was conceived with the Vancouver Teachers' Association initiating the movement. Although  not officially born until July 12, 1919, the youthful organization  supported the first teachers strike in the British Empire, that of the  Victoria Teachers' Association in 1917. The provincial Department  of Education refused to take action against these teachers, although  Victoria School Board urged it to do so, but instead used its influence to affect a settlement very much in favor of the teachers.  From this strike arose arbitration procedures for settling salary  disputes. Ever since that time, the B.C.T.F. has increased its activities to such an extent that a list of its accomplishments, which  have made an invaluable contribution to public education in B.C.,  both from a pedagogical and a professional viewpoint, would require more space than is available here.  The organization of the B.C. Teachers' Federation provides for  district councils (regional organizations) and local associations of  teachers. The local associations deal with matters which are purely of local concern ��� e.g., relations with local school boards. The  Sechelt Teachers' Association forms a district council with its  neighboring associations in Powell River and Howe Sound. This  district council elects one representative to the province-wide Representative Assembly. The job of elected geographical representative is to take the Representative Assembly the opinions of teachers in the Howe Sound-Sechelt-Powell River (South Coast) district,  and to bring back the thoughts, decisions, and actions of the provincial Executive Committee and of the Representative Assembly.  The Sechelt Teachers' Association is engaged at executive and  committee levels in continuing training activities such as workshops  and seminars which help to keep local teachers abreast of current  trends in educational philosophy and teaching methods; secondary  and elementary curriculum directors inform teachers of pending  changes in curriculum and pass on teacher ideas to provincial curriculum committees; the local Public Relations committee initiates  and directs schemes to foster and promote the cause of education  in the district, .co-operates with the local press and School Board  in publicizing Education Week, and publishes a monthly news bulletin for the teachers.  Continuing liaison goes on between the local school board and  teachers' association in many areas. For example: salary negotiations, effective teaching and learning conditions, individual teacher grievances, and the formulation and discussion of educational  objectives both present and future are but a few of the areas of  contact.  ���By Mr. M.

The average householder immediately begins grumbling  about the bulb manufacturer  and his planned obsolescence.  He beefs about the oost of  bulbs, how long they last, and  the bother of replacing them  in hard-to-reach locations.  But what is the actual cost?  How long should a light bulb  last?  *     *     *  Electric light bulbs are probably one of the most economical   essential   commodities   on  the   market   today.   They   are  purposely designed to give the  most  economical light  for the  combined cost of    bulbs     and  electricity.  You might say the  manufacturer tries to strike a  happy   medium   between   bulbs  that burn out too    soon    and  bulbs that give too little light  for the current they consume.  The  cost   of  electricity   consumed  by  a   100-watt   General  Electric   bulb   during   its   lifetime, for    example,    averages  about seven times the cost of  the bulb itself. That bulb is designed to provide steady light  for at least 750 hours.  *      *     *  The manufacturer can easily  make a 100-watt bulb that will  last much longer than the kind  you  buy   in  the   store.   But  it  would provide much less light,  thus forcing you to use more  light  bulbs,   with  consequently  higher costs for both bulbs and  electricity to provide the same  amount of light.  The design of the bulb and  its hot-burning filament are  carefully controlled in the  manufacturing process to give  the customer the most light for  his money.  * * *  In a 60-watt bulb, the filament is only 18/10,000ths of an  inch in diameter. But if it was  only oneprecent thinner in one  spot the life of the bulb could  be reduced by 25 percent. Or  if the tiny coils of the filament were not exactly spaced,  lamp life could suffer by 20  percent.  A light bulb is not like a  tire or a pair of shoes that you  want to get all the possible  mileage out of. It is merely  a device for changing electricity into light. A 100-watt bulb  BLACKTOP!

Williamson, Blacktop & Landscaping Ltd.,  11869 Tenth Ave., Haney  uses about $1.85 worth of current in its lifetime, so the measure of its worth is how much  light it will provide for that  $1.85.  Bulbs these days are burning  out more frequently in the average Canadian home because  more people are using light,  have more bulbs in their homes  and leave them lighted longer  than they used to.  *       *       *  With a regular household  bulb it is impossible to have  both high efficiency and long  life. This is inherent in the way  a tungsten filament operates.  The brighter a bulb burns, the  hotter the filament is and the  sooner the bulb burns out. At  lower temperatures, less light  is produced and the bulb lasts  longer.  To     commemorate    Thomas  Edison's 100th birthday, General Electric engineers designed and made a 100-watt bulb  that they predict will last for a  century. But the amount of  light coming from that bulb is  far below normal household  standards.  �� * ��  To get the same amount of  light produced by a ' standard  100-watt bulb, you would "heed  10 100 year bulbs, and electricity would cost $18.50 every 750  hours instead of the normal  $1.85.  The lamp manufacturer  strives to make bulbs ��� that  have the best balance between  good efficiency and reasonably  long life. The best balance rests  on two factors that concern  every customer: the lowest  cost of light yet the utmost efficiency.  Weather becoming milder?  "Red skies at night; a sailor's  delight," an expression which  had its roots in maritime lore,  has become part of our language's vast storehouse of  cliche expressions. A greait  many people believe this expression to be true. Perhaps at  one time it was. But this isn't  the case today, at least on Canada's west coast. In fact, according to Captain Jim Taylor,  veteran Canadian Tugboat division official, the weather  along the B.C. coast has been/  undergoing   a   change   and   no  longer holds to predictable patterns as in the past. He says  the weather is getting milder,  but the gales, are more frequent than before. Old concepts  are changing and are being revised in every field; in business, the , social sciences  church, education and politics.  Long established guidelines are  sometimes just not valid. Each  of us must make adjustments  in changing future courses and  depend on factors slightly more  reliable than purely superficial  signs.

The camp was put on the  market some months ago as the  result of a decision made . by  the' provincial command.  On the subject of membership  qualifications it was moved  that the general bylaws should  be amended to allow Allied nationals who served in the armed forces of their countries and  were discharged hastily by reason of enemy invasion and now  are Canadian citizens, should  be allowed to become Legion  members.

At a Pacific Command Royal  Canadian Legion full council,  meeting, Feb. 12, the decision  was made to encourage maximum participation of athletes  in zonal areas instead of a one-  shot final meet.  The expanding program initiated four years ago has cost  over $70,000 some $20,000 more  than expected, and a budget re- '  quiirement of another $20,000  was requested this year.  Legion sports training chairman, Bert Lamb, and his committee proposed the idea of inter-zone meets after the preliminary branch and zone  elinu(nations, to effect some  savings on transportation, but  primarily to increase the num-  ��� ber of children who could take  part.

A formal dinner for government and centennial guests will  be held in the Empress Hotel,  followed by the unveiling of the  British   Columbia   Caravan.  The caravan is  scheduled, to  tour the  province     for     nine  months, visiting about 200 communities.  ensure a supply of coaches in  the more remote areas, with  the ability to organize and run  successful Track and Field  meets.  The Legion will continue to  provide funds for team travel  on a per capita basis for Bantams and Midgets within realistic distance. However, it is  hoped encouragement to Pee  wees, Juveniles and Juniors  can be extended at branch and  zone level. Registration will  continue as in the past, with a  June 1 deadline at Pacific Command.   ���  BELTS FOR CARS  Front seat shoulder belts will  be a new safety device available as a dealer installed option on all General Motors cars  produced in Canada after  March 1.

Halfmoon Bay  By   MARY   TINKLEY  Generally the past week has  been a quiet one in the Bay,  with only the flu bug showing  any sign of activity. Everybody  seemed to be occupied in nursing the flu, recovering from the  flu or waiting expectantly to be  the next victim. The Halfmoon  Bay School was badly hit, with  more than 50 percent of the pupils absent on one occasion.  An interesting visitor in the  Bay last week was 88 year old  Mr. Art Wattam who had motored all the way from his home at  Havre,  Montana,   accompanied  by his son, Andy. Mr. Wattam  was  the  guest  of  his  nephew,  Art Armstrong and Ms great-  niece,  Mrs.  Joan  Cunningham.  It was Rusty Cunningham's first  opportunity to meet his great-  great   uncle.   Mr.   Wattam   and  his son plan to travel back to  Montana   by   way   of   Niagara.  and Tennessee.  New residents of Frances  Avenue are Mr. and Mrs. F. A.  Boyd who have been staying in  Sechelt while they built their retirement home. They formerly  lived in Winnipeg.  Returning from visiting husband, Frank, in Shaughnessy  Hospital, Mrs. Lyons has had  as guests her granddaughters,  Carol and Susan Laird of Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Pallant  have been spending a week's  holiday at their cottage.

TOP  FILMS   BOOKED  Three shows now playing in  Vancouver theatres this week  have already played in Gibsons  during the past month, Ray  Boothroyd, manager of Gibsons Twilight Theatre reports.  He reports that quite often Gibsons gets films before they  reach the suburban theatres.  GLOVE FOUND  A child's machine knit glove  with a pearl button was found  near the School road apartment  block by Shirley Hoehne on  Thursday afternoon of last week  It is now at the Coast News  Pigeons carry  school thanks  Of all the interesting visitors  who have called at Roberts  Creek School, perhaps the two  that accompanied Mr. Jack  Warn to Division 2 recently  found the most favor with their  hosts.  They   were   two   carrier   pi-  ^geons.  Mr. Warn delighted the class  with a constructive talk about  carrier pigeons, their training  and contribution to the mail  service. He permitted the children to handle the gentle creatures and it was a matter of  minutes before the- feathered  visitors had worked their way  into the hearts of the children.  Decisions to own such bards  were made' on the spot.  When the birds were released .  outdoors they circled the school  and then took off towards Halfmoon Bay to their owner, Mr.  Manton. Each carried, special  delivery, notes of thanks to Mr.  Manton for giving the class such  a pleasant experience.
