On  the Sunshine Coast a music festival is not a competitive affair  like the kiwanis Music Festival  in Vancouver. It denotes the  orgihal meaning of the word,  a Special celebration.  ' The Sunshine Coast Arts .County  r7ciljSponsor-of the- annual-fes-:  tival 'seeks to ^promote local "tal-"  ent first of all and to stimulate  growth by bringing professional  musicians and singers to the  district. Last year's festival was  entirely a children's program,  given toy the children of the elementary schools of the Sechelt  School district from Bowen Island to Vancouver Bay. Except  for Dr. Lloyd Slind from UBC  who conducted ���������; the combined  choirs and the narraltor Gordon  Inglis, chief announcer from  the CBC, it was a local production.  The 1967 festival will have a  centennial   theme   and  will  be  | a   co-operative   venture,   local  singers and musicians both chil-  ��� dren   and   adults,   taking   part  with   professional   singers   and  musicians from Vancouver.  The  combined  choirs   of  the  ' elementary schools who gave so  much pleasure last year will  sing again, directed by Dr./Don  Gibbard of UBC. The enfthusias-  tic;- applause given to the Gibsons choir at their school concert on Thursday, augurs well  for the festival.  Because of the difficulties of  -.-getting together,"r in this wide-  77sp^ead^^i^^^,of the^rae-;  ""tislng "for tne"festival goes on  in small groups. School choirs  from Langdale to Madeira Park  have been .working on their part  in the program and will have a  rehearsal at Elphinstone on Saturday .morning, April 22 from  10 to 12 noon with Dr. Gibbard.  The full district- band will also  rehearse in the "afternoon from  12:30 to 2:30 p.m.  To avoid a repetition of last  year's overcrowding the festival  comimittee has decided that all  600 seats in the auditorium will  be reserved and admission wall  be by ticket only.

'"  20 hear  dean speak  Education starts when you  draw your first breath and ends  when you stop breathing. This  was basic philosophy on education as expressed by Dean A.  R. McKinnon of Simon Fraser  University.  He spoke before an audience  of 20 persons ��� Saturday morning of last week in the United  Church hall at a meeting arranged by Ken Sneddon an SFU  student whose home is in Gibsons.  The dean, an advocate of continued education urged adults  to take greater interest. He  cited how Ontario schools are  now in operation from 8 a.m.  to 12 midnight with the adult  evening program more than  paying its way.  The dean regarded present  physical aspects of today's  schools as outmoded. Automation was not to be feared, in  fact he supported the idea of  a more automatic type of learning.  Dean McKinnon was of the  opinion present school buildings  could be improved to apply increased use of facilities not only  for students and teachers but  for full time use after normal  hours.  Another speaker, to appear in  Gibsons on April 27, is being  arranged by Mr. Sneddon who  also adds that movies shown r.t  the meeting last Saturday will  ���be continued this Thursday  evening, 7:30 p.m. in room 102.  STOLEN!  A roll of six foot chicken wi e  100 feet long was stolen fro-n  Kinsmen Park late last week  and the Kinsmen would like to  have   it   back.  It was intended for use at  the tennis court as part of the  park' improvement program. lis  return would be greatly appreciated. Coast News, April 20, 1967.

Unify in the Community gets things done  Team[teaching'may help  Team teaching* a new development in education in both ele-  mentary and secondary schools is receiving considerable attention  among educationists. Principal W. S. Potter is planning to include  it in the coming term's schedule.  As Principal Potter views it, the time table will be arranged  so that all grade ten students will have social studies and English  in two consecu'tive blocks with the same teachers. To offer a simple explanation, team teaching involves taking a larger block of students, say two or three grade nines and having one teacher, well  versed in her subject, give all three classes the same course. This  would avoid having to take three classes at separate times. It  could be expanded throughout the school in other subjects, with one  teacher specializing on a specific subject and saving time by teaching to a larger number.  At the recent Community Conference on Education held in Gibsons, Mr. Alan Stables, who teaches in a mainland school housing  850 students at the secondary level, developed the idea of team  teaching by suggesting that it is possibly better to- have one specialist present a lesson to 150 students than to have five average  teachers present lessons to five classes of 30 students.  If the explosion of knowledge, as he termed it, is. the cause of  the creation of such an idea for teaching it would appear that it is  another case of necessity being the mother of invention. Team teach  ing will work in two directions. It will give the student an improved  way of learning and will also help the teacher to develop her specialty to a greater degree than if she had to spend time delivering  the same course to three or four classes, a 'time consuming job to  say the* least.  A cash value on cleanliness  Determined efforts are being made to make the countryside  clear of what is generally known as garbage. Auto passengers are  able to obtain bags in which to place unwanted refuse acquired  during travel. Some of them do make an effort to do their part  by dumping filled baks at receptacles available at stopping points.  Cleanliness of a community can be an outstanding factor in  the life of any area, be it urban, surburban or rural. Nothing  automatically reduces the value of property than an unpleasant  sight, created usually through thoughtlessness. ,:  With the area Regional District board of trustees giving  serious consideration to garbage collection plebiscites sometime  this summer it would be well for residents of the area to think  beyond their own requirements and regard the value of a totaS  garbage collection as being an answer to that age-old problem  of garbage distributed over acres and acres of prime land fronting highways.  There are numerous services for which ratepayers payout  money such as roads, health services, water where available,  phone lines, power lines and others. These services are paid for  without argument. The value of the cost of individual garbage  collection will easily pay for itself in a clean neighborhood which  will add to p-operty values.  Those who want to quibble over the amount have the right  to do so but they must remember that if the majority prefers to  keep the neighborhood free from litter they have the right to get  what they want. So far in travels throughout this area we have  not noticed anyone cleaning up messes that have been left by  some thoughtless persons. It is time the population expressed  its views. If one can guage the temper of the population, the  majority prefer garbage collection. Such being the case all they  have to do is place the right mark in the right place on the pleibi-i  scite when it comes time to register one's vote.  Minute message  The tirre of the singing of  the birds has come, are words  '' ">m yn Old Testament book,  The Song of Solomon. Had this  writer experienced the thrill of  hearing the first song of th_  birds on their return after the  dull winter months? How our  spirits have been lifted and our  hopes renewed by the cheerful  s?nrs of these choristers the  last few weeks.  We are grateful for these  harbingers of spring, for not  only do they bring us cheer  bt:t ?ssure us that the Creator  who has brought again the time  of the singing of birds is the  Father God who is sure and  can be depended upon in His  bringing to us the seasons, especially the spring with its renewal of life. How terrible it  would be to live in an unpredictable kind of world where  we  could not   be  certain  that  the seasons will surely come  in order, as morning follows  night.  But the cheery notes of the  birds remind us of the assurance of Jesus that not one of  these, even the little insignificant sparrow, falls to the  ground without the Father  knowing. God does not prevent  the fall but He knows. So, says  Jesus, not one of them is forgotten in the sight of God; Fear  not therefore, ye are of more  value than many sparrows.  Maybe if we take time to  hear the gay abandonment of  the singing of the birds we shall  be renewed in spirit and find a  lift in our work, assured that  we are held in the care of a  God who does not fail to give  to us the time of the singing  of the birds. ��� Miss H. E.  Campbell, ��&. John's United  Church, Wilson Creek.  Observations   that   follow-;  were- penned- by Principal '���  W. S. Reid ox Sechelt Elementary school uponhis return from a i<ationa_ ��� convention on Northern and InT  dian Education :'n Saska- ���  toon, ��� Sask. At this convention there were no white  speakers. ������'' r-'r-"'  There was little doubt in the  minds of the Indian delegates  that the over-riding theme of  the conference was going to be  that of the education of their  children, and a combined ex-  . pression of concern over the  social and family pressures  brought about by the growing  trend towards integration.      7  Most of the  speakers;  which  included representatives of the  Metis,    Eskimo,    and    Indians  from   across  Canada 7. felt that  integration of their people with  the   whites was   ultimately, inevitable,   and in order  to   survive    economically,    necessary.  What is of concern to the delegates is  the  apparent  indifference of the white man as to the  means of implementing integration. Thus, during the two days  of  the   conference,-  the   Native  speakers,   fully   aware   of   the  importance   of   the   gathering,  eloquently, and very often emotionally,  expressed their views,  hopefully as  they     stated     to  those of us who would listen,  and in turn act.  n* -2- u*  Of prime importance to the  Indian is the right to reject  or accept integration, and not  have it thrust upon him. He  feels that too often white man  has adopted the attitude that  what is good for him is good  for all.  Resistance towards the acceptance of integration came, I  felt, more from the delegates  of the isolated areas. One member  stated  that  the  most suc-  COPYRi-HT APPLI-D FOB  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  Several    men    have    written  concerning charges brought  against them that they are the  father of an illegitimate child  and queried their legal position.  A social worker will call. If  there is no doubt in the man's  mind that he is the father, he  may, if he wishes, admit his  paternity and agree to support  the child. He is, however, not  required so to do and may  leave it up to the mother to  bring a charge against him under the B.C. Children of Unmarried Parents act. He will  be summoned to appear in the  family and children's court. A  lawyer should be engaged by  the man. The court will provide  a lawyer (a prosecutor) to present the case for the mother.  The law provides that no man  can.be found liable on the evidence of the mother alone. Her  testimony must be corroborated (that is, supported) by some  material evidence, for example,  cessfully integrated s reserves  are those ��� that are-, situated  close to the influence of urban"  environment,, but when one  visits such areas as Alert Bay  and the like, this point of view  is open to further, discussion.  One spokesman expressed-the  hope that the integration of his  child should not be considered  solely on his-being accepted into the white man's school, but  rather his assimilation into the  social   and  cultural  life  of his.  white  classmates.     Specifically  his being invited to their homes,  clubs,   church,   and  other  community activities. Another delegate,   speaking   very   strongly,  felt that  integration  should  be  a two-way: process, and .if conditions dictate, children of nearby white communities could be  enrolled into the former Indian  schools.   He   expressed   anger  that if difficulties, such as transportation,   or   isolation,   should  occur,  it is always the Indian  child  who   is   forced, to   travel  the long  distance,  or is  enrolled into the Residential type of  schooling.  5��       *       *  Mr. Fineday of the Sweet-  grass Reserve lamented the too  often familiar case of the successfully integrated graduate-  student leaving the reserve, forgetting his . cultural heritage,  and the needs of his people for  a world that he does not fmd  complete acceptance. He stated  that the government should actively encourage-an educational program of training these  young people to become the future leaders of the Reserve  community. He, particularly,  had doubts as to the wisdom  of integration, feeling that a  case in point was that the best  training ground for leaders of  the reserve was.on the reserve  itself. Mr. Fineday resented  particularly the government's  efforts   to   promote   integration  POINT  OF LAW  btf ~/f f^ractidnf aLawijer  payments by the man to the  woman, or registration of the  birth in the man's name by his  consent and signature, tc the  necessary documents, or the  evidence of the man's handwriting on a hotel register  where the couple stayed around  the time of probable conception  (which is normally 280 days before, birth).  The man should obtain blood  tests. These can prove paternity  but never disprove it, so he has  nothing to fear from the tests.  (Neither has the mother if her  claim is valid).  Blood tests are exceedingly  complicated. In this article, we  wall deal only with the basic  grouping, A., B., A.B., and O.  If the tests show the man to be  A., the woman to be B., and  the baby to be A., nothing is  proved, any man with an A. or  A.B. grouping could be the  father. If; however, the baby  is B. or O., the man could not  possibly be the father. The  pathologist who does the ter.t  will, however, go into various  sub-groupings (of which there  are many) in an effort to further determine the  matter.  A very large sum of money  is at stake as the judge may  order the child to be supported  for sixteen years plus the  medical expenses of birth.  COAST NEWS  19 VliillN tl.ll  St. Vincent's Mission held a  successful .bingo game in the  Legion Hall,  Sechelt.  At the monthly meeting of  the W.A. to the Canadian Legion, Miss A.

Mrs. Hattie Ferguson from  the West Coast, and in this  case, a representative of people  living in an urban shadow, felt  that too often integration has  failed because either one group,  or both, is hot ready to accept  it. ���  After conversing with a number of delegates I was impressed with the concept of the  transitional phasing of the integration movement, and the  question of whether or not to  integrate depends first of all on  the desire and initiative coming  from the Indian people themselves; it depends also on the  right. time  and  the  ideal  con  ditions, coupled finally with  positive assistance arid guidance  coming . from the government  and the white community.  The native speakers had particularly strong feelings regarding education which they feel  is a right guaranteed to them  with;the signing of the Indian  Act. Generally most objected to  the Residential school as a  place of learning for their  younger children. They felt that  it tended to disrupt family life,  talcing their children away  from the home at an age when  the need for parental influence  was greatest.

Things are looking up already  in the Centennial year, so we  are getting all set said Bill  Wright of Sunnycrest Motors.  He pointed to a big hole, alongside his Esso filling station  across from the Sunnycrest  Shopping Plaza. The excavation  now contains a 3,000 gallon tank  in addition to the 2,000 gallon  tank now in operation.  A new duel pump for regular  and Esso Extra gasoline is already in place, and also a separate .pump for marine gas and  the expanded operation will be  all set to pump over the weekend.

Integration  (Continued from Page 2)  bringing up and caring for his  child.  Mary Carpenter, a young Es-  ��������� kdmo poet, spoke with. great  emotion when describing her  own educational upbringing in  a northern hostel. Miss Carpenter felt that the white man has  raped the northern people of  their proud heritage, and forced them into the pathetic position of either forgetting their  cultural past or to look upon  it with shame, as being inferior.  She told of the lack of communication between authorities  and parent as to what were  the best educational ' requirements for children to have, in  order for them to live a successful life  in the north.  Miss Carpenter spoke also of  the Eskimo resentment of having lessons taught only in English by teachers thoroughly unfamiliar with the native dialect.  She suggested    the    maximum  employment of natives as teachers  or  as   aides   to assist  the  white    teacher    by serving as  an emotional bridge    for    the  young child. to  cross when  entering   the   very   strange   rew  world of formal education. The  selection of these native teachers   and   aides   should   not   be.  based.solely on the candidate's  educational     background,     but  rather     on     his ability in  the  classroom.  She  concluded with  the final urging that the hostel  system for the elementary child  be  replaced  by  a  smaller  village school, and thus keep the  child at home.  .   All   delegates   expressed   dismay    and   anger   over    many  aspects of the present curriculum taught in Canadian schools.  They felt  that  the  Indian  had  played  their  part   in  Canada's  early beginnings   and   development, and were entitled to proper recognition. Too often brief  mention in the first one to \wo  chapters   of  our  history   te\ts  is  made  of them  as  savages,  and as the continual enemy of  the white settler ��� settling contentedly on Indian land. The native people do not wish to adopt  a    different    curriculum,    but  vatrr-" \n h?ve the present one  -���-rr!i"^"tr'f]  to  give  the  true  historical picture,  and also  to  have it  serve the basic needs  anri rcmnrrrncnts of th" -^tivn  child  so  that  he  might, live a  successful  life  in  his  own  en-  > out    r.rnst  of  < hen i   fee!  !hi:t crluor.ikn mirst not br pi" -  sented to them in such a way  as to solely lead on to a higher  formal education which few  will attain, but'father to serve  their basic community requirements.  The native people are anxious  to. partake in a more active  educational role, and express  the hope that it would be possible for them to have representation on the various school  boards. When referring to the  functions of school boards, I  gained the impression that they  felt, in some respects, it was  the trustees themselves who determined curricular policy in  the schools; and I felt also that  they have a rather naive approach regarding the financial  involvement related to the running of schools.  I should like to conclude this  report with the following suggestions for the members to  consider:  (1) The principal of integrating schools, and in particular  of Sechelt ��� Elementary School,  should make positive efforts to  encourage the Indian parents to  actively take part in the school  life m their community.  (2). When integration is to be  attempted, children, I feel,  should be enrolled at the earliest possible age, preferably at  the primary level.  (3) If it is possible, I feel  that the establishment of a  nursery school for the ��� very-  young children of the reserve  would be most advantageous in  preparing them for the early  days of formal schooling. This  would serve as a further supplement to the Kindergarten program, and would be particularly helpful for those children  coming from the more isolated  districts of this Coastal area.  (4) To serve within the nursery school as either teacher  or teacher aide, if it is at alt  possible, I feel that a Native  girl   would  be   most  beneficial  Coast News, April 20, 19.7.       3  by serving as an emotional buttress for these very young children.  (5) At the conclusion of the  conference, the delegates passed resolutions outlining their  views and hopes regarding all  aspects of education and integration. This brief will be forwarded to the various boards  and departments across Canada, as well as the United Nations. I ask the members to  give consideration to this presentation; and if you so desire,:  support it in every way possible.  May I state finally how pleased and honored I was to attend  this conference, and consider it  a truly profitable educational  experience. I only wish, in giving this report, that I' could  match the eloquence and simplicity displayed by many Native delegates when giving their  presentation.

Farr, coun-  seror; Lorna Sneddon, Thelma  Volen, treasurer; Judy Farr;  front row: Sheila Campbell,  Mrs. Farr, counsellor; Juanita  Wray and Barbara MacLean,  secretary.  Hi-C group 5 years old  Gftosons Hi-C teenage co-ed  group ranging from 15 to 18  years holds an important place  in the life of its 16 or so members.  This non-denominational organization sponsored by the United Church Youth program,  meets from 7 to 9 Sunday evenings in the Fellowship room of  the church, under the counsellor-  ship of Mr. and Mrs. L. Farr.  The H_-C program stresses the  highest ideals for youth and to  strive for the best in whatever  undertaking they embark on.  . The program includes a business meeting, sing-song, a feature such as a speaker, educa-  tional film or panel discussion, '  and is in chare of one member  each week. The meetings conclude with worship and refreshments.  The group conduct their meetings, make their own decisions,  and Mrs. Farr points out, the  more opportunity these teenagers are given to express their  thoughts and take on projects,  the greater the spirit of responsible leadership reveals itself.  Similar groups are active  throughout B.C. and Alberta.  The feature activity is an annual youth conclave, the Nara-  mata leadership training school  for grade 12 Hi-Cers and their  counsellors held for one week  near Penticton.  The local group was started  Iby Miss Jean Robertson at Gibsons United Church four or five  years ago.Jind has flourished  with the assistance and interest  taken in it by the United Church  Women (UCW). In return the  teeners help out with odd jobs  around the church, cutting the  lawn and assisting when called  on at church functions.  One of their most successful  and creditable projects was the  adoption, through Foster Parents' plan, an international  group in Montreal, of Young Kil  Koo, a Korean lad, two years  ago. Young is now ten years old  and through the fostering of the  Hi-Cs who send $16 each month  to maintain this adopted child,  he is now attending school and  the group was delighted to receive his first letter written in  English.  Last Christmas they raised an  additional fund of $37 as  Young's Christmas Box, from  which he purchased a baseball  mitt, a study desk, and a pair  of ice skates.  These young people are developing Christian leadership  and having good fun along with  it, Mrs. Farr said.  Jobies visit Penticton  A group of 13 girls and five  chaperones from Bethel 28,  boarded a bus with Powell River Bethel members on March  30. The bus driven by Dick  Grey, caught the 10:30 ferry  and most of the time on the  trip was spent in singing. Arriving at Penticton about 5:30  p.m. the party attended the  Grand Guardians dinner. After  the dinner a talent show was  put on by". Jobies from various  Bethels.  During the three days at Penticton approximately 800 girls  registered. They were given  Friday afternoon for bowling,  shopping or sightseeing. At 7  p.m. Friday there was a flag  ceremony, when all the flags  of the different countries of  Jobies were displayed.  On Saturday morning a skit  competition with 22 Bethels entered was won by Bethel 47  of Kamloops. Nancy Douglas  helped Bethel 28 with its skit.  After lunch  some  of the girls  went to a ranch to ride horses.  Saturday night the installation of the Grand Guardian  council started at 7:30 and ended at 11 p.m. After the installation, an orchestra of four played for the girls. Sunday morning we began the trip home.  The happy girls thank their  chaperones, Mrs. Morrison, Mr.  and Mrs. Dockar, Mrs. Chamberlain and Mr. McLeod for  their help during the trip.  FOR FISHERMEN  Two open weekends have  been scheduled by the Harrison  Mills Logging Division for public access to the Chehalis Valley  this spring. Dates are April 22-  23 and May 13-14.

Coast News, April 20, 1967.       5  To Ottawa  Philip Reeves of Grade 11,  Elphinstone Secondary school  has been selected by a committee of the Canadian Red  Cross Society as one of the 12  boys and 12 girls from British  Columbia and the Yukon to attend the Centennial project of  the. Canadian Red Cross Society,  Rendez-Vous '67, an International conference for youth to be  held at Carleton University, Ottawa, from August 13 to 21.  At the conclusion of the  seminar in Ottawa, special  buses will take the delegates  to Expo '67 for two days and  a further visit to Niagara Falls.  Students will leave Vancouver  by train for Ottawa on August  U and from Toronto for Vancouver about August 25.  The cost of transportation and  room and board will be covered by a youth travel and exchange section grant through  the Federal Centennial commission. High schools in the province are being asked to'assist  with the cost for room and  board at Ottawa for the 85 international students from 40  countries. The Elphinstone Red  Cross Youth club is contributing $100 to this fund. The students were able to raise this  money from the Christmas  draw of cake, pudding, cookies  and candy at Christmas,' lost  and found fines during the year,  mixers, Penny Drive and sales.  The chief purpose of the conference is to foster international understanding and it is hoped  . that this will eventually lead  to  cessation of all wars.  To leadership  Rita Ono and Steven Lee Of  Elphinstone Secondary School  have been selected to attend the  Centennial Leadership center to  be held at the Jolly Roger Inn  June 25 to July 1.  The purpose is to train young  adults to become leaders in their  school and assume responsibilities dn community international  programs. The type of training  is in public speaking, group dy-  names, parliamentary procedure, psychology of leadership  and responsibility of young adults in school, community and  world.  There will be personal contact with international university students. Social activities  will include swimming, team  recreation and entertainment by  group participation. The $40 per  delegate charge is being raised  by the club through its various  activities; the proceeds from  the coneesslion on sports day will  be used mainly for this project.  Letters to editor  Editor: At the last meeting  of the board of directors of the  BC. TV-Christmas Seal society,  members passed a vote of appreciation to the communications media of the province.  Without the assistance of  members of the press, radio  and television, it would be impossible to fight the TB battle  in case finding, through health  education, and in money^raising  by our annual Chrstmas Seal  campaign.  Last year again more than  500 cases of tuberculosis were  discovered in B.C., which is indeed proof the disease is still  a major threat to our gowing  communities.  Public spirited British Columbians used more Chris'.mas  Seals during this past campagn  than ever before and through  them $347,296.41 was raised to  continue the fight against tuberculosis and to uncover other  non-tuberculous chest conditions.  Please accept sincere thanks  from the B.C. TB-Christmas  Seal Society for your understanding support.  It would be impossible to' conduct our campaign without you  and the society fully appreciates  this.-���K. Vaughan-Birch, President.

I paid my membership fee only to be told by the  president at the next meeting  I attended that I was not a  member.' I did not get a receipt but fortunately had a witness to the payment.  I had obtained from Ottawa  a copy of the charter and noticed that Roberts Creek was included in the boundary. At the  last annual meeting that I attended when the chairman of  the membership committee read  out the names of the officers  and executive I drew it to bis  attention that he had only mentioned nine directors whereas  the charter allowed ten. That  would have been a good time  to add a member from Roberts  Creek but instead he added a.  second member for Port Mellon. Naturally I gave up my  membership. .  I wrote the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce on Jan. 4 about  a matter of considerable interest to the people of -Roberts  Creek. To date I have no acknowledgement although I telephoned one of the executive a  month ago and was told that  the letter had been received  and he would look into it and  I would hear from him.  When you published in your  paper that the wharf at Roberts Creek was to be pulled  down did the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce do anything to  stop it? No! I was the one  who got it stopped and it is today the headquarters of the  Propane Gas firm.  There is no room in any  chamber of commerce for selfishness, it must cover the territory allotted to it if it wants  to prosper, I know that from  years of experience in that  work. Incidentally I was the  person who got the Canadian  Chamber of Commerce started.  ���B. L. Cope.

This is accomplished by taking advantage of  the side slope of the lot, placing the carport under the sun-  deck, concrete steps up to the  walk to the entry, and inside  the front door, the fireplace  backs on to the entry wall, providing a handsomely rugged appearance in the front hall.  The living room takes advantage of the time tested L formula for the living/dining area  with access to the sundeck from  the dining room through sliding  glass doors. The kitchen is efficiently planned in the U shape,  double stainless steel sinks overlook the garden and the rear  sundeck, the bar counter separates the working area from  the breakfast nook. A minimum  of space is used in hall area,  just enough to provide privacy  for. three bedrooms, all of which  have large closets. The large  bathroom has double wash  basins in the vanity and stor-  roughed in plumbing for future  age area.  One of the best features of  this house is that it is not  necessary to cross any of the  roonis to reach another, cutting  down on wear and tear in traffic flow. The basement has a  large recreation room area,  expansion,   furnace  rooms   and  News intended for publication in the Coast News  should be in this office as  soon as possible. Space  tightens up towards deadline  which is Tuesday noon for  news, resulting in items  which could have been in  earlier being left out.

The fellow I'm going steady  . with is not the father.  If we get married, do you.  think that my boy friend  would throw it up to me about  the baby's father? Do you  think he would resent her?  ��� My boy friend's mother had  him by another man - before  she got married. Knowing this,  I thought that he might be  a b 1 e to understand my situation better. He told me that  he wishes his mother had given him up for adoption.  ��� I was going to give my baby  up for adoption but once I saw  her I just-couldn't. I loved her  too much. My boy friend said  he wouldn't let. it ;change  things for us if I kee^ her.  Twenty And! injLove  DEAR TWENTY ��� I simply  couldn't,say; it depends so  much on the personality of  your boy friend.  If he loves you a great deal,  he may come to love this baby  as his own. Some fathers do.  But.I do know of young husbands who harbor some.resent-  , ment down deep, only to re-  , viveit later on, reminding his  wife in the course of some  childish quarrel about discipline, that the child is not  his. .'  My reply about that is, of  course, that a child becomes  yours more through the love  and care you give him than by  any accident of birth. Adoptive  parents are proving this every  day. .  DEAR  DORIS  ���  I   am  a  widow. At the age of 43, a  fresh start is indicated. Teaching pays a good salary but is  terribly demanding of  evenings and week ends and  my own children get little attention.  I could:  1. Stay on here but find  another, job ��� possibly  bookkeeping. I have no busi  ness training but am reasonably bright.  7  2. Move to a country location where the cost of living  is low. Live on savings and  whatever employment I can  find.  3. Go to live at our summer  cabin,  which is  winterized.  < This is only accessible by wa-  s teriand~>we_.;would be stormbound for many, days in the  year. The children would get  schooling by correspondence  and we could be nearly self-  sufficient.  Widow With Two Chi" en  DEAR WIDOW ��� Eliminate  number three right away. With  no husband, no roots, no inlaws even, you are lonely  enough. Why hot seek a less  demanding .teaching assignment?: People who change  horses in midstream often  wish they could change back to  vthe old familiar nag.  But there are government  allowances - for widows raising  children on their own. Explore  this.  DEAR DORIS ��� I've been  living common law for five  years. We built a home together, which is in his name. I look  after him and his son.  He handles all the money,  even grocery money. With his t  selfishness and possessiveness,  he has killed all the love and.  respect I had for him. He insists on a marriage license, but  I'm afraid things will be even_  worse if I take it.  Do I have any rights as common law wife to the property,  or could I collect my wages? I  have no money and nowhere to  go. I'm 48 years old. He's 50..,  I can't stand living this way  any more. ���"  Nerves Going:  DEAR NERVES ��� No  rights, I'm afraid, and mighty,  little chance of collecting  wages. You entered into this  arrangement of your own free  will. But you are just as free  to leave it.  teachers and . nurses.- -'Women  , over 40 and men under 30 tend  to be in the majority- of those  wending, their- way to the marriage bureau. Many o_�� thie most  successfully-matched have- been  by mail ��� like the maths professor in the* east now happily.,  married to a social worker.  The prospective- marriage  partner writes in for an application^ which is filled out, and  then they wait until there is a  suitable mate available. In her.  office, Mrs. Brown shows pic-,  tures, describes " possibilities  and the man chooses whom he  wishes to meet. The lady has a  chance to refuse or accept before he receives her phone  number. If they live near Powell  River or Nanaimo, Mrs. Brown  suggests they come in for an  interview, but .they can send  a picture. "I have married off  many people I have never  seen."  In a small town, Mrs. Brown  points out, often a person has  looked over all the prospective  single possibilities. Daughters of  farmers don't have to marry  the first.person who lives down  the road. Of the 4,000 people  who have applied, Mrs. Brown  hears from many- engineers,  DEW Line types ��� all wanting  to meet a home-loving wife. She  has married off couples as far  away as Ontario and as far  south as Oregon.  Mrs. Brown met her own bus--  band at a square dance in London, and was married in Bombay, where her husband was  manager of a pharmaceutical  firm. On returning to Vancouver, she answered an ad: 'Business opportunity for lady 7 preferably married, with social  work or phsychological background. Just be open-minded,  progressive and energetic,' run  by the wife of a professor at  U.B.C., Mrs. Jean Haddon. In  addition, Mrs. Brown's background work, a graduate in  sociology and psychology, worked among the B.C. fishermen,  and a co-operative education  program sponsored by the  U.B-C Extension Department,  worked in adult education ''iff  Saskatchewan and with the  UNESCO conference in Denmark. She grew up at Shuswap  Lake and went to school at Salmon Arm and Canoe, B.C.  The. first thing, she says, is .  to have an honest and sincere  desire to marry. Triflers or  ���gold-diggers are deterred by  /the' comprehensive registration  form. The questions, composed  with the help of experts in marriage counselling, are the basis  for the scientific selection of  compatible mates. If, at first  they are not attracted to each  other, Mrs. Brown urges them  to meet a second iims. Anyone  unable to be courteous to a  stranger on two occasions is  not mature enough to marry.  In the well-appointed offices  in the Vancouver Block," the  business of match-making goes  on;   with 20%  needing  one in  troduction only, most three to  four, and some requiring fourteen or fifteen introductions,  and most counselled to wait  seven months before marriage.  The oldest is 78; the youngest  18 (applicants under '21 must  be accompanied by their parents).  Even a robber broke in to  steal some files which, fortunately, were only billing files.  Mrs. Brown thinks he was one  client she had to turn away because he lacked education and  she had no one waiting to meet  him (as many as '/_ of the  4,000 who apply are kep\ on a  waiting list until the suitable  mate turns up).

Eleven grade 6 and 7 girls  brought the evening's entertainment to a close with an amusing play. The Reluctant Ghost,  directed by Mr. Cooper, in which  a group of girls planned to use  a ghost to scare away an unwelcome guest. It did not work  out quite that way, but everything turned out to be for the  best. Various hidden talents  came to life including the ability to howl like a banshee. Narration was by Martha Brakstad,  and Colleen Husby was the sheet  draped ghost. Other girls taking  part were Ginny Alsager, Den-  ise Clarke, Theresa Labonte,  Colleen McPhedran, Mary Mue-  lenkamp, Kathy Potter, Sharon  Sandy, Donna Solnik and Ciana  Watson.

Standings so far.this year are Bombers 609, Sabres 542, Spitfires  518 and Mustangs 460. With  softball and track and field remaining the Mustangs still have  a chance for top spot.  John Volen, and the cat. These,  promising young actors will perhaps be  able  to' take  part in  .senior productions in the next  two years.  The Unicorn in the Garden,  directed by Mr. George Cooper,  a,delightful nonsense skit with  a surprise ending which the performers obviously enjoyed as  much as the audience. The, use  of mime to augment the dialogue put the point across despite acoustical difficulties'.
