Million gallon reservoir dug  Present spring water runoff  in the reservoir at the source  of the springs is pleasing to  members of Gibsons council  who:learned last Tuesday night  at council-meeting that the pres-'  ent, flow is in' the region of 20,-  000 gallons a night. 7;  TSome of this is being pumped  down to the School road reservoirs and when reservoir capacity is at its peak there will be  approximately 1,630,000 gallons  of water available. This will include 1,000,000 in the new reser-  yoirv,500,000 in the old one and  65;000 gallons in eaich of the  reservoirs now on -School road.  The bid one jutting out into the  roadway will be demolished.

Because this is Canada's Cen-  l tennial, an attempt was made in  January of this year to start arrangements for what should ibe  , the   biggest July  1   ever.   This  <" meeting met  with pathetic  en*#  l thusiasm   as   dad   three   subsequent  meetings,   two   of  which  1 were called very recently. It is  cbvipus now that time does not  ���  permit the planning of a July 1  ' extravaganza   in   keeping   with  our nation's Centennial year. In-  .  ueeci, if the next meeting is at-  .; tended   with   as   much   support  :j as the past two, we won't even  1 have a small July 1 Celebration.  '     The  old  excusev provided. by  those pretending to be concerned is that we tried starting too  early and that "lots of people  will come .������ forward. in the last  four weeks." But, because this  is a Centennial year, four weeks  is not enough time to make all  the necessary 'arrangements.  One factor many of these people forget is that there are many  more progressive comimiunities  than ours and since they will be  planning larger July 1 celebrations than normal, there will be  vex-y little chance of acquiring  bands, parade entries, trophies  and many other items at this  very late date.  If this community wants to  have a July 1 again this year  we will need a much larger committee than we had last year in  order to compensate for the lack  of time. I urge all interested to  attend the next meeting which  '.vllj oe held May 24 at 7:30 in  '.he, Gibsons Kinsmen Clubhouse.  ��� 'it.'takes more than mere residence to qualify as a citizen of  a community. I'm anxious to  .see hoy/ many real citizens we  do have. Our next meeting will  teii! Unity in a community gets  things done!  Mike Blaney   ���  -'".' CORRECTION '    : ���  In presenting in last week's  paper the mill rate figure for  GXosons an error was made in  estimating the hospital tax  would be 1.44 mills. It should  have read 1.15 mills thus bringing the total mill rate including  municipal, school board, and  hospital x-ates to 50 mills instead  of 50.29.  r-nmiMuiunuHm��mui��iutmHuuwu\uu��mmwr.��muraiv  Famed hall celebrates birthday  40 7:stand/pipes  .throughout',, the,: 7letter: will be sent7to^them 7f or���;  arisa^wiU^s-ipp^^ v" ^'���*s^*---  tion,v also ample water, The  opinion of councillors is that increased fire protection I with increased- fire Hydrants; should  have;ah effect in reducing-insurance costs.

Roberts Creek's grand old  lady will celebrate her ��� natal  day on May 24 when she will  have attained 33 action-packed  years. She has had to watch her  calories, indeed^ there were  times when there were all too  few. Times', too, when she was  forced to go without cosmetics  and, shamefacedly suffer unkind or pitying remarks as to  her bleak and colorless appear-  .ance.  During some years she exper  ienced metabolism difficulties,  and there were days when anemia nearly did her in. But after  each bout with poverty or sickness, with the help of different  sets of doctors she courageously  tossed off her mantle of despair  and returned to her original optimistic outlook and funpacked  activities.  This last year she has played  bingo every week. She has attended wedding receptions,  smorgasbords,    dinner    dances  Jjiay J_>ay float planned  Her 1st.  Pool 66% paid for  In view of the fact the Port  Mellon-Gibsons Centennial pool  fund has reached, the two-thirds  mark Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce at Monday night's meeting appealed  to the public and public organizations to put the project over  the top.  This motion was passed after  Charles Mandelkau, chairman  of the pool canvass committee  addressed the chamber pointed  out that no organization has  approached the Centennial committee to express opposition to  the pool. Therefore the committee takes it for granted the  pool 'is accepted as the Centennial project.  Before the ; canvass started  over the weekend the fund had  reached the $14,000 mark. While  the canvass is jbeing held the  committee in charge prefers to  wait until all collections are in  before . making any announcement.  Searching back into the minutes Mrs. Lee Macey, ise'cre- .  tary-treasurer revealed that last  Nov. 21 with 52 present at the  C. of C. meeting a motion was  passed giving the Centennial ���  pool plan its whole-hearted support..     ; .     ' .  There were 15 persons present with four' vacant chairs.  The chairman, Ron Haig - was  asked where were the people  who at the previous general  meeting voted that dinner meetings be continued.  Kay Butler brought up the mat  ter of abandoned ��� cars how littering the landscape and pressed  the chamber to look into  worth looking into and discussion brought out the point that  in San Francisco such cars were  dumped into a water area  where the increase in fish  hatching was now more pronounced. The fish like the car  bodies as homes. Mr. Feeney  told how the Regional council  was trying to get lots in the  pi-esent garbage dump area in  Gibsons for the purpose of  dumping unwanted car bodies.  Ewart McMynn somewhat  .apologetically because he had  brought it up at various other  meetings asked what could be  done about having a good boat  launching ramp in the bay. The  matter received the usual discussion with the present r,airp  bsing- rr>'"V-5.op<��d as suitable  only at high tide. The chamber  awaits someone to come up with  a good idea, not too expensive.

B.C. schools  called worst  in Canada  "British Columbia schools are  the worst in Canada," Mr. John  Young said during his speech  Friday evening at Gibsons Elementary School. "They are dis-  functional and need much  change and improvement."  "~ "-'rvlipr.! of Campbell River Secondary school for the  last two years, Mr. Young has  introduced an operating philosophy of freedom with responsibility to approximately 280 16 to  20 year old students. By 1974 he.  exacts to have 1100 students-  As education is foremost in.  the minds of all who attend, the-  method, of less paternalism has:  been extremely successful.  We must think of the future,  not the past Mr. Young said as  he explained the facilities which  include a modern science laboratory,   tape   recorders,   and   a.  large library with full time librarian. Twenty teachers whom  the students now regard as professionals feel they are able to  provide more adequate lessons:  and   private   counselling  under  this new system. The timetable  serves only as a guide to these  scholars who are now being given the opportunity to make their  own decisions concerning courses  to be studied, class attendance,   dress   and   fundamental  rules and regulations with  the  guidance of the principal  and  teachers.  "Attitude toward learning replaces aptitude for learning in  our school," concluded Mr.  Young, "therefore we have no  discipline, problems."  A question and answer period  completed the, evening with Mr.  Young and an audience of about  50.    ... -.��-ji_l  ��"i ii' ���*���  i sxcn i v-v  2       Coast New.sa MiaJ 1^119875;*0iV  A week for veterans  "This college doesn'i subsidize athletes, but it does try to  ,'������..  find jobs for them around the campus." ���-  Phone 886-2622       P.O.

Unity in the Community gets things done  A model school age group?  The Sechelt Teachex-s Association in bringing the principal of  Campbell River Secondary (Model) school to Gibsons where some  .'50 teachers, parents and a few students heard his talk, did the  community a service. However what should be remembered in  connection with what he said was that he was talking about students in the late teens and early twenties.  Thus, the stage was set for a discussion on freedom with responsibility. In this case the age of responsibility had a great deal  to do with the freedom he stressed as being the major factor in the  operation of his model school. There is generally a much greater  feeling of responsibility iii the minds of those approaching the age  of 20 than there is in those in the 15 to 17 age range.  He argued there was no discipline ill his classes. He thought  the act of a student raising his hand to leave the room was humiliating. In an age where reason predominates this would fit very  nicely.  But all students are not yet involved in the age of reason.  Principal John Young, the speaker, stressed the downgrading  of teaching and the upgrading of the student. He was bringing university practice down to grade 11. He preferred to expose the stu- .  dent to the idea that teachers were professionals, not defenders of  the integrity of the school. His school did not need rules and regulations. There was no thought of discipline and no punishment.  The use of therapy predominated.  'He argued that too many schools were like prisons with the  teachers like guards and the principal a warden. Students had  rights. If they wanted to grow beards or long hair he could not  care less. What had that to do. with education? Schools were obsessed with teaching where they should be obsessed with learning.  What the principal had to say concerned students with a sufficient degree of responsibility in their makeup. If one read last  week's student comment on the week of such freedom with responsibility at Pender Harbour Secondary School one came up with the  idea that where a student was concerned with freedom with responsibility such a program could work. It was evident that the good  student took advantage of using freedom to advantage while the  others made a nuisance of themselves.  Therefore the only guiding thought from the effects of the Pender Harbour week of experiment and the students under Principal  John Young could be in the remark used in an editorial of May 4  that education is that which discloses to the wise and disguises  from the foolish their lack of understanding.  Flood control possibilities  Flood control is not a worry on the Sunshine Coast but its  straits area does get the muddy waters of Fraser River licking its  shores. Jack Davis, MP for Coast Capilano, speaking in Burnaby-  Seymour, said we should have been developing the Fraser before  now. He added that both Ottawa and Victoria have been letting us  down badly.  Back in 1963 the two senior levels of government jointly published the Fraser River Board report. The report said the Fraser  drained what was probably the most important watershed in B.C.  Its development would yield untold wealth in terms of navigation,  irrigation and generation of hydro electric power. The report also  said a major flood control should get under way at once.  Mr. Davis then detailed what Manitoba had done to curb Winnipeg flooding. The responsibility primarily was provincial but  the people of Manitoba and the federal government got together  and a great multi-million dollar ditch was constructed around the  city. Ottawa has put up more than half of the money and Manitoba  the remainder. It cost the municipalities nothing.  For the Fraser area he suggests a series of dikes to cost about  $20 million. Later reservoirs should be ibuilt in the headwaters of  the river. Power could be produced then. He explained that anew  water act is under consideration which would eliminate burdening  municipalities with river costs.  Is It going to take another disasterous flood before something  is done? Shall we have to wait until such time as the game of badminton between Victoria and Ottawa is halted? The inevitability  of gradualness is evident.  ' National Veterans Week, June  11 to 17,- is being sponsored as  a part of Canada's Centennial  celebations by the government  of Canada, through the department of. veterans affairs, and  veterans associations. ,  "  ' Beginning with memorial  church services and the laying  of wreaths on Memorial Sunday, June 11, the week will be  filled with activities for Canada's 975,000 living veterans of  the four wars in which Canada  has participated since becoming a nation. Those who served  in the two World Wars are being asked to wear their service  or discharge button during the  week.  Since Confederation, Canada  has taken part in four wars:  South Africa, 1899-1902; World  War I, 1914-1918; World War II,  1939-1945; and Korea, 1950-1953.  There are approximately 975,-  000 veterans living in Canada  today. Perhaps 1,000 of these  are veterans of the South  African campaign of 1899. There  are approximately 70,000 Canadian veterans now living in  foreign  countries. '7"  Canada remembers -\ 112,331  war dead at Cenotaph's across.  the country each year. Their  names are enshrined : in four  Books of Remembrance in the  nation's capital at follows: Nile  Expedition and South Africa,  .267; World War 1,66,655; World  War II, 44,893; Korea, 516.  Canadian servicemen nave  been awarded 94 Victoria Crosses in wars in which Canada  has participated since the Victoria Cross was instituted by  Queen Victoria in 1856.  Memorials to Canadian servicemen stand in Great Britain,  France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Malta Egypt, Sing- 7  apore, Hong Kong, as well as  in cities, towns and villages  across Canada. N  There are approximately 142,- .  464 veterans receiving disability pensions in Canada today.  Canadian Vetcraft Shops in  Toronto and Ste. Anne-de-Bel-  levue produce approximately  8,000,000 poppies each year for  Canada's November 11 Remembrance Day.  In addition to poppies, veterans in Canadian Vetcraft  Shops are producing 2,000 spe-'  cial commemorative wreaths  this year, to be placed at war  memorials and cemeteries  across Canada during National  Veterans' Week.  Canadian dead of both World  Wars are buried in 70 different  countries throughout the world,  including Canada, records of  the Commonwealth War Graves  Commission show.  There are approximately 23,-  000 war widows living in Canada today.  William Dickie Mills,' a native of London, Ont., and now  in his 102nd year, is probably  Canada's oldest living veteran.  Mr. Mills, a veteran of the  North-West Field Force (1885  Rebellion), now resides at the  DVA Westminster Hospital, in  London.  ,  Canada's second oldest veteran is probably James Henry-  Weir who celebrated his 100th  birthday, February 8, 1967. Mr.  Weir is a veteran of the Canadian Expeditionary Force of  World.War I, and a descendant  of Judge Robert Stanley Weir,  composer of the English version  of O Canada. Born at Fitzroy  Harbor, Ont., Mr. Weir now resides at DVA's Rideau Health  and Occupational Centre, Ottawa.  There are 14' Canadian Veterans' Hospitals across Canada.  In Ottawa, the. Canadian Armed Forces celebration of The  50th Anniversary of Military  Flying (Rockcliffe Airport, June  10) will be staged as a salute  to Canadian veterans, and National Veterans Week.  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 readers have asked  questions on attacking a will.  By this is meant taking legal  action to declare all or some  of the provisions of a will invalid and to obtain a court decision awardng the estate or  part of it to someone left out  of the will.  This falls under the B.C. Testator's    Maintenance    Act. The  operative  section of the act is  worded very broadly and gives  the judge who tries the matter  a very wide discretion.  The section reads in part as  follows:   ... If any person  dies leaving a will ... without making . . . in the opinion  of the judge'.  .  .  adequate  provisions    for    the    proper  maintenance and support . . .  of the ... wife, husband or  children, the court may . . .  order that such provision as  the     court    thinks  adequate,  just and equitable in the cir-  pbiNf  OF LAW  of -/r /���practicingcJLawytr  cumstances, shall   be   made  out of the estate ...  Our courts have made many  decisions awarding all or a portion of an estate to an applicant. The common case is a  husband leaving his estate to  a woman other than his wife.  The wife as in a strong position  to apply under the act.  The law strongly favors infant children or adult children  of the deceased if they were  dependent on the deceased ���  especially females. Persons who  are physically or mentally ill  are also favored. We do not  think there has ever been a  case where a healthy adult non-  dependent male child has successfully claimed.  The question is often asked  by a person proposing to have  a will drawn in such a way as  to. cut out a possible claimant,  what he should do. In our view,  he should simply proceed^ as he  wishes. The potential applicant  may be ignorant of their rights,  or they may never get around  to consulting a lawyer, or even  if they do, they anay never sue,  or it may be too late. Such legal  action must be commenced  within six months of the date  of probate of the will. Persons  with possible claims should  consult a lawyer without delay.

EGG MARKETING SCHEME,  Box 494, Cloverdale, B.C.  II They're Both lightning on the <_raw...im  reaching for their wallets!"  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By JACK DAVIS. M.P.  Floods are very much in the  newsthese days. And well they  might (be. B.C. has a "record  snow pack and our warm weather has been slow in coming.  So, if it does warm up quickly  we could be in for a run off  of record proportions;.  ; The alert of course has been  sounded. But no amount of sand  bagging at the last minute can  contain a rampaging river. River management is a matter  of long term planning ��� of big  investments in dams, dykes and  diversion tunnels. These vast  works must be built well ahead  of the big melt itself.  No last minute stoppage effort will do. Far from it. Most  of the works necessary to contain a flood must have been  built well in advance.  Those of us who live on the  North Shore are fortunate in  this respect. Thanks to the initiative taken by our late Reeve  Murdo Fraser, back in 1962, we  have now brought Mosquito  Creek under control. A lot of  work has also ibeeh done on the  Capilano. Lynn Creek and Hastings Creek are also showing the  effects of long term, planning  SaaXrepetitionofe. the disastrous  flbods'of earlier years is no  longer a possibility.  How did this all come about?  Well, Murdo Frazer wrote to  me back in 1962. He asked if  there was anything Ottawa  could do in this connection. On  looking into the matter I found  that we had a Canada Water  Conservation Assistance Act on  our books. Passed in 1954, it  said that the federal government, subject to certain conditions, was prepared to subsidize  flood control works. This it  would do to the extent of 37^_%  of their cost.  ������-'.Si-- * *  Qualifications looked almost  insurmountable at first. The  total value of the works had7to  be in excess of $1 million. The  province, also, had to put up  37i/_% of the cost,1 'and, finally,  the benefits attributed to these  works would have to exceed  their cost by a considerable  margin. ..:������';  We got over the first hurdle  by lumping the three North  Shore municipalities together.  This, eventually, ibrought the  total value of our works on the  North Shore up to $3 million.  So we were over the first  hurdle. 1U  Secondly, after many months  of considerable correspondence  with Victoria, the municipalities  Deadline!  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.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  managed to convince the pro-  vincal authorities thait they  should match Ottawa's offer,  on a dollar for dollar basis.  Finally, there was a matter  of economics. By trimming  costs here and there and by  projecting the residential and  the industrial growth of our  North Shore communities well  out into the future we ended  up with a benefit-cost ratio of  more than one.  7.7*.'.. *..     sfe  All of this, now, is history.  The works themselves are in  place. But we made an important break-through. British Columbians have now taken advantage, for the first time of  the Canada Water Conservation  Assistance Act. And many of  our rivers and creeks on the  North Shore are under control.  Several other applications  7 have recently been made or are  under consideration. Remember  the Alberni tidal wave in 1964.  Eventualy remedial works will  be put in to prevent 'this happening again. But no construction is under way as yet.  Then there is the Squamish  , River. A joint Federal-Provincial team of engineers is now  preparing 7,.a proposal for  straightening ou. and dyfcirig  the Squamish. I have high  hopes that this $2.5 million program will be approved shortly  and that construction will be  under way before the year is  out.  ������������ #..    *&..*.  ; Our happenings in Coast Capilano are in marked contrast to  the lamentable situation on the  Fraser. There a $1 million '  flood could occur at almost any  time. Little has been done however. This despite the fact that  a joint Federal-Provincial (team  of 'economists and engineers  has made detailed studies and  various recommendations as to  how to deal with the situation. 7  Their last report was in 1963.  But no construction has got  under way because the municipalities in the lower mainland  area had to put up 25% of the  cost of these works. The bill  was too large for them. And,  because they could not raise  their share of the money,' little  has been done either by Ottawa  or Victoria in this connection.  7.*   "   *   '������' *   '  Fortunately this financial  roadblock may soon disappear.  Prime Minister Pearson has stat  ed that the federal government  will soon be introducing a, new  Canada Water act. My understanding is that the'37V_% ceiling on federal contributions will  be removed. Ottawa, in other  words, will be free to put more  money into the construction of  our river control works. If Victoria matches the federal offer,  then we will be on our way. No  longer will the-smaller municipalities be faced with an impossible task. And many tens of  millions of dollars will ibe available for bringing our major  river systems under control in  B.C.  INTRODUCTORY  LUMBER &  Ltd.

The Bogeyman we are speaking of is the imaginary one  of "Building Regulations," that are presently under active  consideration by the members of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board.  The Board members are unanimous in recommending  that a Building Code be made law in this area and to this  end the National Building Code, a provincially recommended Plumbing Code, and a Dept. of Health and Sewage Code  will be adopted in due course. We will take great care to  point out that these codes are not restrictions, they are constructive and helpful.  The regulations are designed to help, not hinder. To  assist and not prohibit. The Building Inspector will have instructions as board policy to adapt to conditions, to be helpful, or to work to protect the builders interests and invest-*  ment.  Our policy overall in adapting these various construction regulations is to raise and maintain the standard of the  whole community, to protect the existing owners from loss of  values, the actions of rogues, and finally to protect fools  from themselves.  The area directors are listed below and will make themselves available to any resident who wishes information or  assurances.

Do it on a regional basis with  Gibsons to Port Mellon on one  night and Roberts Creek and  Sechelt on the next night, to  avoid bunching up of parents  waiting to see teachers. Provide  chairs in the hall so parents  waiting would not be in the  room at the same time as an  interview was proceeding.

This was the keynote of an  address by Arnold Edinborough,  pufolisher of Saturday Night,  given to the opening.session of  the annual conference of the International Reading, Association  in Seattle May 3 to 6. Over 10,-  000 delegates attended the various sessions to hear talks and  discussions on the many aspects  of reading instruction given by  those educators famous in the  teaching world fof their innovations, their research and their  ability to communicate clearly  with other teachers.  Mr. Edinbofbough developed  his theme by showing that TV,  for example, and newspaper  complement one another. What  flashes before the eye on the  TV screen can be studied at leisure the next day in the newspaper. TV arouses a curiosity  that can only toe satisfied by  re-living the incidents as they  are read in the newspaper or  _ie magazine or the book. This  state of affairs demands an  ethical press and this can in  great part be achieved by developing a discerning and - critical reading public.  Much then depends upon the  effectiveness of our schools in  getting its pupils to learn to  read with some skill and judgement. The world is a long way  from discarding reading.  When the radio became common, the cry was that newspapers, magazines and books  were done for and the same cry  is heard now with TV and computer looming large on our every day living horizon. But. the  fact is that the printing of books  has increased beyond all expectation, in the emerging nations  of Africa especially, where hundreds of titles are published now  compared to none 15 years ago.  New methods of producing news-,  papers and durable soft cover  books places print in-the forefront of the communications media. Even Marshall McLuhan  saye Mr. Edinboroiigh, comes  across most clearly in print.  The conference was. attended  by two local teachers, G. Cooper and J. Aryis of the Gibsons  Elementary School.

Wolf Cubs now active  The Boy Scouts of Canada  have approved a new Five Star  scheme for Wolf Cubs  The scheme will replace the  Two Star Cub system and has  been designed to introduce  more challenge to the overall  Wolf Cub program. It was introduced to retain the interests  of the older Cub yet attract  ' new recruits  at all levels.  Montreal lawyer, Stanley  Taviss, who is chairman of the  Wolf Cub subcommittee responsible for the Wolf Cub program,  says the Five Star scheme  embodies current thinking on  flexibility and boy centred activities. It involves activities of  greater interest and allows for  modification to meet the needs  of boys in specific geographic  regions,  or with handicaps.  Much of the onus for providing information; has been placed on the home and community  so that parents, librarians,  swim pool supervisors, and  other community officials will  assume a greater responsibility  In fact,  says    Mr.  7 Taviss,  Scouters need not be fully qualified in all the subject requirements ��� which include such  things as making rain gauges,  crystal radios or electric motors.  The five stars will be awarded  for achievements in the areas  of self development, creativity,  community exploration, Scout-  craft, and conservation. They  may be obtained in any order  and will be worn on the top  left sleeve of the jersey. Colored black, blue, green, red and  tawny, they will have equal  importance and may be obtained in any' order.

We see so many  children, three and four years  old, completely boss of the  home, Why? Because they are  allowed to do just as they  please.. '  When our children were  small, there was no such thing  as babysitters, so we took  them all wherever we went. I  always told them before they  went that I didn't want them  to touch anything.  I made sure thay had something to do. Children can't sit  on chairs r-.d look at themselves. Then, when they came  home, I would hug them and  tell them how happy Daddy  and I were because they were  so good. People always said  they would rather have our  whole bunch than some others'  one or two.  Mother Of Eight  DEAR MOTHER ��� There are  young mothers, not much more  than children themselves, who  think they are being mean  when they deny their little  ones any single thing.  They are being meaner when  they don't set any guide rules!  The world will do the punishing later, sad to say.  DEAR DORIS ��� Just a contribution to your records about  older people doing big jobs:  In our town there is a Seniors Service, staffed by retired  people for the help of less-able  oldsters. One woman in he7*  70's is a visitor.  She tells about calling on a  lone male of 82 who is nearly  blind but still in his own  rooms. She brings in his groceries, cleans up the place.  Then she cleans him up;  when she hinted he might like  help with his bath, he was  pathetically grateful and accepting. The operation was beyond  him alone, what with his stiff  legs and his poor sight.  She is an angel of mercy for  several homebound loners.  Betty  BEAR BETTY ��� Thank you.  With help like this, many elderly people can manage in  their own homes. And the idea  is catching hold.  DEAR DORIS ��� I am 19 and  not.old enough to go on dates,  but I go to dances and parties.  I Hike boys but every time one  talks to me I get'cold feet and  all flustered. Can you tell me  what to do?  Also, I would like some tips  on what to talk about and a  few basic dance steps.  Cold Feet  DEAR COLD FEET ��� Just a  normal Canadian girl. If all  the teenyboppers who panicked at the approach of the  opposite sex were to line up  they'd stretch right across  Canada and back again. Funny  thing is, the boys are just as  flustered.  I've written the leaflet "Tips  on Talking" for girls in just  your predicament. Gives you  some ideas for filling those  awkward pauses. Poise comes  with practice.

I  realize we are still in "the  period of. adjustment" but I  can't stand this constant belit-  tlement. My husband manages  to find fault with all my meals  and then refuses to touch  them.

BUCKLEY,  The   Plant  Research  Institute,  Ottawa)  The fact that the maple.leaf  has long been a symbol of Can-  " ada probably led those responsible for the early development  of the. Arboretum at the Plant  Research Institute to gather as  large a group as possible both  from abroad and from our own  native woodlands. Today there  are 48 different kinds of maples  in the collection. They range  from bushy and scrubby kinds  to tall slender types and those  with large and perfect proportions. There are maples from  Japan, China, Manchuria,  Korea, and other temperate  climes, as well as many from  within   our   own   country.  Most beloved and no less attractive, are our own; native  maples. AH but the more tender  Pacific coast kinds . are represented here, together with selected cultivars of many different  habits  and leaf colors.  The most common native  maples, are the sugar or hard  maple (Acer saccharum,), the  black maple (Acer nigrum), the  red maple (Acer rubrum), the  silver maple (Acer sacchari-  num) and the box-elder (Acer  negundo). All except the box-  elder have simple opposite  leaves with three to five lobes  and the leaves are borne ��� on  long slender stalks. The box-  elder has compound leaves  much like those of an ash with  W.I. holds  plant sale  The Women's Institute annual  plant sale Friday of last week,  in the Institute cottage, S.

Coffee and  doughnuts were strictly on a  do-it-yourself basis each one  serving herself from the large  coffee urn loaned by the Super-  Valu store.  The array of plants, short  ones and tall ones and flowering shrubs was a delight to the  gardener. Eager gardeners were  four deep at the counter. Nothing short of breath-taking were  the rich co.ors of masses' of  auriculas.  Servers at the home baking  table also did a brisk business.  The old fashioned crazy patchwork quilt, which is one of the  institute's centennial projects,  was on display and much admired. Mrs. M. G. Kemp and  Mrs. A. M. Davidson held winning tickets on the two raffled  plants.

THE  BOARD OF  SCHOOL  TRUSTEES,  SCHOOL DISTRICT No.  46  (SECHELT)  BOX 220,  GIBSONS, B.C.  HsRi  COAST   NFWS  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2622  three to five iregularly toothed,  pointed leaflets.  Leaves of the sugar and black  maples  are dark green  above  and  somewhat  paler  beneath;  ���those  of the  black maple  are  covered with fine hairs beneath.  The common name of this tree  refers to the black grooves on  the bark. The leaves of the red  and   silver   maples   are   bright  green above and    whitish    to  sliver white below;  the silvery  coloring is much more evident  in the silver maple. The silver  maple has very deep lobes with  long, points. Those  of the  red  maple   are   triangular   with   a  sharp right angle at the base  of the leaf recesses. The silver  and black maples have rounded leaf recesses.  All of these trees are useful for planting in gardens, their  exact use depending on the area  and location you choose for  them. The box-elder is often  regarded as a weed tree because of its untidy habit of  shedding seeds in late spring  and the ubiquity of its seedlings,  which seem to germinate in  every nook and cranny.  Very often the trees have  persisted in gardens where they  have sprung up spontaneously  from self-sown seeds and where  the owner has allowed them to  develop. By the time their bad  traits are discovered the trees  have become part of the garden, producing shade and  screening for the owner and  his neighbor, making their removal almost sacrilegeous. In  such cases one must endure its  untidy and. prolific fruits, lack  of fall color, brittle wood and  ungainly outline.  The silver maple has its good  points although it is not usually  considered a good tree for the  small garden. It will withstand  very moist conditions and if the  area is large enough to support  a 60 to 80-foot tree, this  one  might  be useful.  It  will  grow  very fast, as much as 43 feet  in   12r years.   But, before   you  plant one first take note that it  -is a very brittle tree and may  be  devastated  by  ice   storms.  ���If     you     must plant a  silver  maple    choose    the cut-leaved  type, Acer saccharinum Lacinia-  tum or the new variety Silver  Queen,    which    has    brighter  leaves and a much better habit.  One   need  never hesitate  in  planting the red maple  for it  grows   moderately   fast,   is   interesting in early spring,  summer,  autumn  and  winter,. and  has an excellent outline. There  are   several  selections   of   this  maple  available.   Among  these  are   the   columnar   and   globe-  shaped types. A. rubrum Colum-  nare and A. rubum Armstrong  are    narrow    columnar    trees,  wider than the Lombardy poplar but useful as a much more  durable   replacement,   and   the  Telford    maple     which has a  globe-shared   habit,   gvood   fall  foliage and a smaller size than"  the others. A. rubrum Schlesin-  geri develops its autumn color  three weeks earlier than the  common red.maple. Two other  cultivars selected for their  autumnal leaf color are Gerling  and Scanlon.  Everybody wants to plant a  sugar maple, and many, have  had problems. The tree is slower growing than the other native maples and needs a well-  drained soil. If you plant a  sugar maple in heavy or poorly drained soil, dig a large hole  and place 3 inches of gravel  at the base; in this insert four-  inch drain tiles leading from  the bottom of the hole to a dry  well a short distance away.  This will ensure good' drainage  until the roots are large enough  to crack open impervious soils.  There are many forms of the  sugar maple, most of them .  columnar types. The most notable is the very slender Newton Sentry maple, which grows  40 feet tall but stays as narrow as a Lombardy poplar.  Others are Temple's Upright,  another broad columnar tree,  and the Seneca maple, related  to the sugar maple, and best  described as a smaller, brightly colored kind.  As a large shrub for purely  ornamental purposes the mountain maple (Acer spicatum) is  worth wondering. It grows from  eight to fifteen feet high and  spreads Up to twelve feet wide.  The leaves have an unusually  good texture and are tinted red  in the fall. Perhaps no other  maple has such showy flowers  and fruits.  If you have a very shady  area, the striped maple (Acer  pensylvanicum) may be the tree  you are looking for. It grows  well in complete shade and  produces large light-green  leaves and striped green bark.  While it will not be needed as  a shade tree it is useful for  planting, in groups for screening or producing vegetation in'  an otherwise barren area. It is  not easy to grow and 'needs-  good drainage and a good rich  soil.  Most of these maples are best  planted in eastern Canada. The  hardiest ones, especially for the  prairies, are the box-elder and  the mountain maple. Selected  northern strains of the sugar  maple now under test at the  Research Station, Morden,  Manitoba, may prove hardy.  The 'red maple is not successful on the prairies, probably  because of the dry conditions  and very alkaline soils.  For those on the prairies who  must have a maple to plant this  year,   I  would  suggest  trying  the Amur maple (Acer ginnala)  and training it to a single stem  -Otherwise it grows into a larg��  shrub   with   several   stems.

Except from the major projects that the taxpayer should  have art opportunity of registering his wishes, a sound financial  policy of pay as we go is essential to the success of any business and more particularly so  far as a municipality is concerned.  However when I took over as  chairman January 3, 1966, the  pay as you go not the case for  the following accounts payable  were 1965 commitments that had  to be paid from the 1966 budget.    ���  Municipal  Hall   (annual)   $8,642  Park purchases 1,250  Cochrane property pur.      2,042  Credit  Union 5,528  Sidewalks       ' 13,000  $30,462  It must ibe clearly understood  that it is not the objection of  the purchases but the method  adopted.  This year it is expected that  all municipal accounts will (be  paid for on a pay as we go method, that is, all municipal work  and contracts entered" into in  1SS7 have been set up in the  1967 budget and will be paid for  in 1967 (except in cases of disaster and pressing emergency).  The   question   of   the   waterworks being a public utility is  set up separately and not sub-  General Municipal  Hospital  School District ���  Total Millrate  The total for the 1967 school  budget amounts to $1,580,806 an  increase over 1966 of 19.9%  amounting, to $262,085.  , Of this total of $1,580,806 the  village of Gibsons Landing is  assessed $73,339 and in order  to raise that mount it is necessary for. the municipality to  strike a millrate of 30.68 mills  which calls for an increase over  the 1966 Gibsons mill fate of  5.04 mills.  ject to a municipal mill rate.7  At the end of 1966 the-surplus  is shown as $22,953 which is a  little misleading. This amount is  actually a gross surplus and a  slight change is necessary! in  order to show the true net or  actual surplus so far as the village is concerned. The actual  surplus for 1966 is therefore:  Municipal 7       $13,130  Waterworks . .79,823  .   Gross surplus    7 $22,953  It will be noted in the figures  of the 1967 budget the waterworks surplus has been transferred from the gross surplus  to the 1967 revenue waterworks:  In the total of the 1067 budget, provision has been made  for (I) an increase in pay to  our public works superintendent  (2) certain requirements such  as the beautifying of the build1-  ings and the .grounds of the welfare centre as well as the muni-'  cipal property and assistance to  the Kinsmen for the improvements in the Kinsmen's Park  ��� the Dougal 'property.  In spite of rising costs and  the amount of work being done  in 1967 I am happy to advise  that there will be, practically no  increase in the mill rate for 1967  municipal levy.  The hospital mill rate shows a  decrease of .29 mills^ and the  hospital board should be commended for their part in such  decrease.  The school mill rate however,  shows an increase of 5.04 mills.  The following is a comparative  mill rate for 1965, 1966 and 1967:  1965 1966 1967  18.71 18.92 19.17  1.64 1.44 1.15  20.35 20.36 20.32  23.65 25.64 30.68  44,00 46.00 51.00  It is interesting to note that  the school district's 1967 budget shows a 19.9% increase  amounting to $262,085 over the  amount budgetted for 1966.  I point out these two salient  points, not in any way of criticism but for information only  arid relative to the village increase of 5.04 mills for school  purposes. ��� Wes. B. Hodgson,  chairman.
