Array Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 8862622  Volume 21  Number 19,  May  11,. 1967.  '     7c per copy  Provincial Library,  Victoria* B. C.  1867 U1967  MNAM-COKKDEHBU-  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  School  tries pupil  choices  An It's Up To You experiment  in education was giveni a one  week trial at Pender Harbour  Secondary School. This allowed  students to decide whether they  ��� would attend class or to study  subjects of their own choice  elsewhere in the school.  Final results of the venture  are still to come from Principal  D. Skelton, tout the report he  submitted to the school board  contained partial . results and  comments from students. The  board tabled the report for study:  Grades eight to 12 were involved and a four day percentage of those absent from classes ranged from a high of 59 percent to a low. of 20 percent. The  high was in the grade eights,  and the low, grade 12.    ,  Out of 103 letters sent to parents asking opinions on the venture six replied as being against  seven seniors only, won't work  for their children 3; an idea  worth trying 15 and no answer  72. The 118 students involved  missed 800 classes with the below average students accounting for more than half of the 800.  Here are comments from  some of the students: Grade 12:  Giving seniors more freedom  from supervision would give ���  students more incentive to pass  . . . I feel that grade eight classes, particularly boys are missing  too many classes for fun rea-  soris .7 .The kids in lower  grades who know they are go-  ing^tbfaUaretakirig advantage  :������ of-the situation %"���-. -7 If there- is  conflict between student and  teacher they often work better  separated ; ... This experiment  allows more study time on weak  > subjects . . . The system is very  good for seniors who are trying to achieve better marks in  academic subjects by studying  during non-academic periods.  Grade 11: Those abusing it  should be taken off for a week  or so as punishment. .. I think  those who want to benefit will  find it convenient to bring marks  up. .-. You don't get so bdred  this way ... It has already helped me in some courses ... It  gives the average and lower students a chance to communicate  with teacher if top students are  not there . . . This program has  ���been a benefit to those who are  using this privilege properly.  Grade 10: Allows students to  make better grades in their poor  subjects ... I like the idea for  grades 10, 11 and 12 but the  teachers are passing off their  responsibilities ... It is helping  some students but some are using this free time to help their  love life. .. It clears classes for  those who want to learn.  Grade 9: The people who  abuse this plan are those who do  not work in class... It is good  because it gets grades 8 and 9  ready . for university ... The  classes are a lot quieter so we  learn more. . . If you don't get  along with teacher you can skip  class and probably learn more  by yourself.  Grade 8: Have a room for  those who want to study and a  place for people who want to  fool around ... It is too bad for  those who skip all classes ...  Some kids think it is just a joy  ride and take advantage of it  ... I have been able to study  for my marks that have dropped  and I hope this will bring my  marks up.  C OF C MEETING  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce members will gather Monday evening at 7 in  the Welcome Cafe for a dinner  meeting. There will be further  discussion on support to be.given students of Gibsons who will  be going to Expo 67 in June.  Tax rates show increase  MARTHA BRAKSTAD  Winner of Studio Challenge  Cup, was awarded this trophy  at the annual concert Saturday  under sponsorship of the OES.  This award is : for the student  receiving the ^highest marks in  the Toronto Conservatory Examinations for 1966, in this case  a very high mark, in the pianoforte class.  an  Does freedom develop responsibility? Can students direct  their own study programs ? Will  greater liberty contribute to a  higher scholastic standing and  more student enthusiasm?  These questions are being tested in a B.C. public school which  functions under the provincial  department of education. The  success or failure of the program may influence policies for  other school areas.  John Young is principal of  Campbell River Senior Secondary school which has been featured in several newspaper and  magazine articles for its novel  and anti-traditional attitudes.  One article in the weekend magazine of the Vancouver Province bore the title: Go ahead,  kids, cut all the classes you  want. . . All you have to do is  "keep your marks up and be a  teenager in Campbell River,  B.C.  Much of the publicity has been  directed toward the voluntary  attendance at.classes, the common room privileges, of seniors,  the freedom of dress and of av-  ant garde hairdo. Not so much  on the responsibility of the students toward their own education has been fed to readers.  Mr. Young's ideas are modern  and iconoclastic, but many appear to be working. The unusual aspects of his school's system are attracting progressive  teachers.  Mr. Young has been called to  speak about his policies and  their practice so frequently that  he is forced to limit his lectures.  However, the Sechelt Teachers  Association has been fortunate  /a bringing him to Gibsons, Friday evening, May 12 at 7:30  p.m. in the Elementary School.  The public is invited to hear him  PREMISES BROKEN INTO  Someone apparently seeking  money only early Saturday  broke into the Kenmac office  and I & S plant on Sunshine  Coast Highway and having found  nothing moved into the Sunnycrest Shopping Centre area  where they entered the Coin  Drycleaning place and obtained  cash amounting to $64.

Broadcasting*  Corporation network television  service in the Howe Sound area  is expected to be on air during  the week of May 15. The cost of  developing and installing transmitters for the new service was  $100,000.  A transmitter on Bowen Island  will pick up the full networfc TV  service from CBC Vancouver on  Mount Seymour and rebroadcast  it on Channel 13. The coverage  area of this transmitter is expected to include the west side  of Howe Sound from Gibsons  past Port Mellon and south past  Gibsons to Roberts Creek.  The Bowen Island signal will  be rebroadcast at Squamish by  a transmitter operating on Channel 11. This transmitter is expected to serve Woodfibre arid  Britannia in addition to Squamish.  CBC engineers suggest that  in the borderline areas of coverage, some locations will get  the best signal from Bowen Island, Channel 13, while others  will find that Channel 11 Squamish, gives the best service.  is 51.29.

The  remainder will be small amounts  in various departments making  a total revenue  of $181,871.  Sechelt's total mill rate, this  year including school taxation  will amount to 44.89 mills. This  was revealed at Wednesday  night's council meeting when  the budget for. this year was  given three readings. The fourth  reading was arranged for Saturday morning. Last year's rate  was 37.08 mills.  Here is how the mill rate is  broken down:  1967       1966  Village 10.00      10.00  School Board 30.66      25.64  H.ID. 1.15        1.44  Fire district 2.98 ���-  School taxation which the village council collects and passes  on to the school board totals  $46,233.  , The village mill rate is unchanged from last year the  school tax has gone up five mills  and the fire protection district  has added 2.98 mills.

They were:  Municipal hall office hours  starting June 1 will be 10 to 12  a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. each  weekday  except  Saturday.  Arrangements were made for  the clerk to have two weeks  holiday with pay during his first  year ending April 1 next year  and three weeks holiday with  pay for 1968.  It was also decided that councillors would get 12 cents per  mile car expenses while travel- .  ling on municipal business. The  works superintendent's pay was  raised to $450 per month from  Jan. 1.  A warning!  The B.C. Hydro Authority advises that the new transmission  line built to serve Gibsons substation is being used as a garbage disposal area. Numerous  amounts of garbage have been  found on this right-of-way, north  of Cemetery road.  On investigation by the Hydro  Security department, a number  of persons who admitted being  guilty of the infraction, agreed  to clean up the area before any  action was taken.  It is an offense to dispose of  any garbage or junk on transmission rights-of-way and other  B.C. Hydro property and, in future, persons responsible for  such an offense will be charged  accordingly.  This investigation, was car-  r:' d out with the co-operation of  the provincial department of  health and the RCMP.  TROWER REMANDED  Peter Garard Trower of Gibsons, charged with being in possession of narcotics, marijuana,  last week has been remanded  for hearing; to a date which will  ibe agreed on later. He is now  out on bail of $250.  Egmont school now housing  eight pupils will be closed at the  end of this school term,- the  . school board decided at Monday  night's���/meeting.^ Pupils wilf be  transferred to Madeira Park  schools; In the meantime traris-  p__-tnt:on will be so arranged  that they can be handled in the  prc:~er.t  setup.  The problem of the school  ciime up when the Community  a ;sociation request for road access to the Community hall was  argued. The association wanted  the school board to donate ten  feet of the present school lot  while John Dunlop would donate  another ten feet to make a 20  foot roadway. The present road  has an awkward turn which the  association sought to avoid. The  board argued that if this was  done it. would eventually cost  more to get other grounds for a  new school. The present school  property not suitable for future  development will be turned over  to its donor.  The secretary-treasurer, Peter  Wilson, stressed that the closing of the school had nothing to  do with the road issue as the  Experience!  Field trips to widen a child's  horizons are a feature of school  life from kindergarten onward.  As students reach the senior  grades they become more specialized and involve individuals  rather than a whole group.  During this school year three  students from Elphinstone have  visited schools in other parts of  B.C., becoming for several days  a part of the student body of another school.  In September Norman Blatch-  ford visited Oak Bay Secondary  School in Victoria, while Mary  Laimlb went to Chilliwack Senior  High.  Recently Joanne Wheeler  spent a week at Campbell River's new Senior Secondary  School, a school where new  ideas of freedom with responsibility are being demonstrated.  These students will report on  their experiences and the impressions they brought back of  another student community at  the PTA meeting, Tuesday, May  16 at 8 p.m. in the Library at  Elphinstone.  board had the closing under discussion regardless' of it. The  school contains two rooms but  only one is now in use. Board  members were of the opinion-  th'at'th'ere'did not appear.:to be  any increase likely for the next  few years in school population  there. The association request  for the new road allowance was  turned down.  The building and grounds  planning committee recommended that the B.C. Telephone /building in Gibsons be rented to help  provide adequate space for the  educational supervisory staff  and the business administration  section. The board also voted  themselves a $300 a year indemnity. Under the Schools act that  is the limit they can vote.  Trustee Mrs. Celia Fisher recommended that the board advertise immediately for an adult  education .director  in   view   of  the fact that arrangements can-  , not be made for a joint appointment with the recreation agency  of the area. The board agreed.  Tenders for site development  work on the Elementary school  grounds  were  discussed  and it  was  revealed  that  Alfred   Ritchey had withdrawn his tender  of. $2,940  on the basis  that he  had not considered the staking  out of boundaries. On this basis  the $5,577 tender of Walter Kara  teew being next lowest out  of  two   remaining   was   accepted.  The other tender was for $5,800.  Mrs. E. Prittie and Mrs. D.  Connor    appeared   to   enquire  when   Roberts   Creek   children  would be able  to play on the  newly grassed playground. The  board decided it would be better   to   let   the   grass   have   a  chance to grow and said that it  would take another look at the  situation in September.  Principl W. S. Reid of Sechelt  Elementary school asked for an  increased budget as his enrolment of 300 would be increased  by 50 when two classes of Indian  children would be added. The  district receives $25 per month  per Indian pupil from the Indian  Affairs department to cover education costs.  Principal Potter learned from  (board's correspondence that Elphinstone Secondary school had  received accreditation for this  year and also next year.  A maintenance staff union  agreement was signed by Mrs.  D. Szabo and Ed Sandy.  Committee  chairman  changed  Following a check-up of operations of the Gibsons-Sechelt  Airport management committee  this statement was issued at  Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons Municipal Council:  .  It was .deemed necessary to  relinquish Conxmissiorier Drummond as the Gibsons Landing  representative on the Airport  Management Committee.  A special meeting was called  of this committee in Gibsons  Municipal Hall April 12, with  the following members present:  Sechelt Municipality, Com. Hansen, Com. Morgan Thompson  and Sechelt Village Chairman  W. Swain. Gibsons Municipality  representatives, Com. Peterson  and Village Chairman Wes  Hodgson.  After much discussion relative  to the relinquishment from the  committee a motion was passed  inthat: There had been evident  lack of meetings of the committee-and the financial statement as' submitted by the airport committee as of December  31, 1966 was not detailed sufficiently. It was decided that  nothing could be done until an  audit had been made.  It was  regularly moved  arid  seconded   that  Mr.   B.   W.   M..  Bone,  chartered accountant, be-  engaged   for   such   audit.   The;  audit having been completed at  meeting of the airport committee was called and held in Gibsons Municipal Hall May 1 and  the whole question of the audi-  ���tor'?i__e_K>'rt   and  the   general  irianagement was dealt with.  The  auditor's  report  in  part  " read  as  follows:   "There  is   a  liability to  the  Bank  of Montreal  of $2,200  with  interest  at  6% in respect of a loan secured  by  a  note  dated March  2,  1967,    repayable    on    demand  signed by Commissioner Drummond and Com. MacKay. The lat  ter ceased to be a member of  the Gibsons Board of Commissioners at the end of 1966 and,  presumably, automatically ceased to be    member of the Airport Management committee. It  would appear therefore, that the  note given to the Bank of Montreal was irregularly signed. Fur  thermore Clause 7 of Bylaw No.  126   of   the  Village   of  Gibsons  Landing states that the management committee shall not have  power   to   incur   liabilities   except such as have been approved  by the participating municipalities, and not exceeding the total of approvals of the respective   municipalities.   There   appears to be no such approval in  the  minutes   of  the  Village   of  Gibsons Landing."Com. MacKay  also   co-signed   cheques   issued  by    the    Airport    Management  Committee in 1967."  A unanimous motion was regularly moved and seconded that  From the auditor's report it was  agreed that the chairman of the  Gibsons-Sechelt Airport Manage  ment Committee, Commissioner  Drummond referred to in auditor's report be severely criticized relative to his handling,  of this committee.  ARTS DISPLAY  The Arts Council Gallery shop  in the Credit Union building at  Sechelt will feature paintings  done by some of the younger  members of the community in  a special display of Kindergarten art.  Work includes portraits, story  illustrations, scenes from childhood and designs and patterns  in a variety of media. There  will also be a display of children's books.

Unity in the Community gets things done  9  9 9  9 9  There are numerous items that could follow those question  marks above but the one which predominates is the subject of this  editorial. It is Gibsons July 1 celebration.  Are we going to ������have one? That is the first question to toe asked. Right now there is no answer.  How many people have shown interest in it? So far there have  been two meetings at which four persons turned up including the  Coast News representative.  How many people would like to see a July 1 celebration? That  is easy to answer. There are about 5,000 in Gibsons and adjacent  areas who are planning to see it.  How are these 5,000 people going to see a July 1 celebration  if only four people, including the press, show up for organizational  meetings? That is the question that representative individuals of  this area will have to answer themselves. They will have a chance  to show their feelings at a meeting to be announced shortly.  This is our Centennial Year and it should result in a first class  celebration. July 1 is a little more than eight weeks away. Are  the people of this area so berift of public spiritedness that this  year's celebration will just not occur?  The community-minded few that are striving to get the celebration going have expressed the desire to wash their hands of the  whole thing if there is not sufficient support shown at the coming  .meeting. Take it from there folks.  .A good aim helps  It is difficult to explain the-juvenile type of. mind that prefers  destruction to leaving things alone. Psychologists might have an  explanation but if they have it has not yet been put to usable advantage so far. Unnecessary destruction continues.  Take for instance the efforts to beautify the front of a good  looking building with some greenery and flowering ibulbs. The  bulbs produce lfowers, some rather nice tulips. What happens?  Someone comes along, snaps off all the flowers arid leaves them  lying1 where they fell. '  Take another case. A man leaves his car for a few minutes  and comes back to find someone has twisted the radio antenna  into a bow knot. Harmless fun? It is neither harmless nor fun. A  good kick on the right spot of the anatomy may not toe prescribed  by some people but it could be highly effective.  Why did they ask?  In the display of preserving people's rights 'because police  chiefs have asked for some further powers to ibe put on record' to  help them, one should not be too concerned albout what they want.  Instead one should delve a bit deeper and find out why they want  such powers.  Coupled with the bill of rights that aids the criminal there  should also be a bill of rights to aid the forces that protect us. However they must toy law be hamstrung while the criminal element  can have the pleasure of holding up the bill of rights to their advantage.  The scales of justice are weighted for the criminal ��� not in*  the courts but in the means available to the police in apprehending them. Justice is truly blind. Hypocrisy is the homage which  vice pays to virtue.  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOft  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column.

What rights does a common  law wife have against the estate  of her deceased husband, who  died without a* will?  There is no such thing in B.C.  as a common law wife.

A concubine means one  who, at the time of the death  of the deceased, is actually  maintained by him or under  his protection. Such a concubine  is entitled to a maximum of  $500 or ten percent of the estate, whichever is greater.  There is a similar provision for  illegitimate children.  The concubine must apply to  the court and the widow and  guardian of .legitimate children  must be notified and given an  opportunity to appear at the  hearing and be heard.

Minute message  How often is it that we hear  something like this: Well' under the circumstances I think I  can do it for you? We often use  such phrases as taking all  things into consideration, or under the circumstances, but are  we sure what we are saying?  Are we riot saying that we can't  do just what we like, because we  have got to consider this or  that?  There are a good many parents, especially at this time of  the year, who wish they could  give their children a better  chance in life, a better education,, better food, better clothing, and a good many other  things but their financial status  will not allow them to do what  they would like because under  the circumstances it is not at  all possible. We think of those  in hospitals and in homes, who  would willingly do this or that,  but under the circumstances it  is not possible.  Sometimes we find ourselves,  and let's be honest with ourselves, apt to let these circumstances overshadow our intentions. What's the use, we say,  the odds are against us, and so  we let the matter drop. If we  scan the pages of history we  shall find a great many illustrations of men and women who  overcame the circumstances,  and because they did we are living under better conditions today.        ,;. . i ,: ���.  It was under the circumstances of the times that our Lord  was placed upon the Cross. If  we feel that we are beaten by  circumstances, then take another look at the earthly life of  our Lord. On that Good Friday  it looked as though evil had won  the day, but under the circumstances it was goodness and  truth that won the day.  In this Ascensiontide we look  at the power which sustained  our Lord through all the circumstances of His earthly life, and  we see that He was lifted up to  His rightful place, in order that  we, as the children of God, could  fulfil the purpose of our being.  It is through the Ascension- of  our Lord that we are lifted up  out of the rut of our worries  into the very presence of God  Himself. ��� Rev. J. H. Kelly,  Anglican Church of Canada.  Indigestible air!  After dinner anti-acid pills or  medicine to relieve stomach  upset may be a waste of time,  money and complicate the condition.  The most common gastro-in-  testinal disorder is aerophagia,  or simple swallowing of air,  says Andre Turgeon, M.D.,  chief of medicine at St.  Joseph's Hospital,  Sudbury.  Only 10 percent of internal  gases come from fermentation  of food; 20 percent from diffusion of gases from the blood.  All the rest comes from swallowed air, says Dr. Turgeon in  The Medical Post.  The physiological fact is that  the nitrogen  in air cannot be  absorbed into the system. It is  regurgitated, expelled or staj-s  in the gastro-intestinal tract to  cause irritation and degrees of  discomfort. Over the years this  chronic discomfort is often mistaken for gall stones, colitis,  etc. Many people bear the scars  of physicians' attempts to relieve their patients of this discomfort,  says Dr. Turgeon.  Gum chewing, candy sucking,  excessive smoking, overeating,  improperly chewed food, too  much fluid taken with meals  are some of the bad eating  habits which induce air gulping  and cause belching.  The best relief for such distress says Dr. Turgeon is the  old fashioned walk after meals.  A monster locomotive  The largest exhibit ever  acquired by the National Museum, a monster locomotive, No.  3100 of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company,' was hauled  into Ottawa for eventual display in the Museum of Science  and Technology.  While a link with the not too  distant past,     having     retired  from service in 1958, it was  built in 1928 and operated in  the Toronto-Montreal area until  1954. In 1955 it was transferred  to the west where it'"shuttled  between Maple Creek and Medicine Hat for a year. Then in  1956'It' was converted from a  coal burrier to an oil burner  and operated between Calgary  and Winnipeg until retirement.  N.

He Doesn't Exist!  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 provdncially 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 cornmunity, 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. Please feel free to call on all or any members  of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board for help and information. This is your community and we invite your participation.

This letter inquired about the two large lots  adjacent to the village which  have become a controversial issue with the chamber.  The chamber's letter inquired  whether it was correct to say  that "at one time these two lots  could have been -obtained free  by the village. The chairman  explained he had held the letter  over since receiving it in order  to investigate the point raised.  As far as he. was concerned,  after searching through council  correspondence there was nothing which showed that the land  could have been obtained free.  He added he was surprised at  the suggestion.  Since receiving the letter he  6PW hears  principal speak  Following the monthly dinner  of the Sunshine Coast Business  and Professional Women's club  at the Winning Post, Ole's Cove  Resort, Tuesday, May 2, Mrs.  R. McLintock membership  chairman, introduced four  guests as prospective members.  Mrs. Daisy de Lange, from  Hove, England, was presented  foy her niece, Adele de Lange.  Before business was transacted, members were given an interesting talk by Mr. Weldon  Reid, principal of the Sechelt  Elementary School, on the current question of integration of  the Indian children into the local educational system. His sympathetic and enthusiastic approach to a problem which is  of concern to many citizens was  appreciated by all, and the club  was promised a return visit  when Mr. Reid would have more  concrete results to report.  Following a short business  .session the annual meeting took  place. The new executive for  1967-68 comprises of Mrs. Grace  Harling, president; Adele de  Lanige, vice-president; Mrs.  Doreen Lee, secretary and Mrs.  Helen Bathgate, treasurer. Mrs.  McLintock continues as riiem-  bership chairman and the publicity and program will be undertaken by Mrs. Jo Benjafield  and Mrs. Kay White respectively.  Oi adjournment of the annual  meeting, Mrs. Benjafield held a  short session covering the resolutions to be presented to the  annual conference of the clubs  of British Columbia and Yukon,  at Pinewoods Lodge, Manning  Pai k, en May 20 to 22.

Mrs. Isabel Dawson, minister without portfolio in the provincial government and suggested that she approach Hon. Ray  Williston, minister, of lands and  forests to get the required information so he could pass it  on to the chamber of commerce.  Chairman Swain sought council's opinion on whether he had  done the right thing to approach  the minister to find out just how  the matter stood. Only members of council present along  with the chairman were Councillor Miss Adele de Lange and  Councillor Morgan Thompson.  They agreed he had done the  right thing.  The land in question was held  by the government four years  ago for the use of Sechelt on the  basis of recreational use. The  original plan was to lay out a  golf course,but this fell througn  when backers of such a course  formed a club and started to  build a course in Roberts Creek  area. Since then gerieral interest  in the two lots has waned.  ^   GIBSONS KINSMEN received the Gordon Anderson' Memorial Trophy for" membership'and efficiency for the .1966-67 year.

So it.is going  to get a review instead.  Elplvnstcne hall was filled.  The audience was enthusiastic  and only waned in enthusiasm  when the Sechelt Indian band  ofifered a couple of items too  many and the loud noise presented by the 50 participants  in the band wore .down the audience at a fairly fast rate. However the Indian .band deserves  credit for its performance and  colorful appearance. Such a  band requires a hall larger than  anything available here.  While the Indian band was  pounding its way through its  program, members^ of the visiting orchestra backstage;. startled at first, became intrigued by  the performance The drummer  started extemporizing and the  pianist joined in with extemporizations, others joining in. They  had a ball of their own which  owing to the din on the audience side of the curtain did not'  penetrate the barrier.  The program was based on a  script written by Ray Holbrook  and Gordon Inglis with narration by Mr. Inglis, Joan Blom-  gren, Wayne Wright and Telford  Oliver. It had a Centennial Expo 67 theme and definitely, after the groundwork had been  laid, did not get in the way of  the action in the hall.  The question to ask is what is  the festival trying to achieve?

VOLUNTEER FIRE SERVICES  ism rub off on the young musical aspirants who sat with them  and played. Apparently this occurred because the youngsters  v/sre thrilled to the core. Members of the Dave Robbins band  were completely engulfed by the  experiment of playing alongside  enthusiastic youngsters.  Watching the professionals  was a treat in itself with some  noting the fingering of the young  players as they tooted their  horns or whatever they. had.  The odd smile appeared on the  faces of the professionals;'.f but  they were just as delighted .with  what was going on as were the  yoiri-g players.  Mr. Klyne Headley and the  Arts Council should be congratulated on their foresight in anticipating what they hoped would  happeri. It did and the young  band players and members of  the elementary school choral  group are,happy.as the result of  having rubbed shoulders with  artists of excellent calibre in  their own fields.  Construction of Elphinstone  gymnasium even with a stage  available is not the best of  places to have.a large orchestra  heavily laced with brass instru-.  ments. Neither was it the best  of places to allow the elementary school choir to display itself at its best. Nevertheless the  choir did an excellent job under  direction of its conductor,* Mrs.  Muriel Neilson and enjoyed  themselves just as much as the  young bandsmen when taking  part in massed arrangements.  To name everyone who took  part in the organization of the  festival would be very nice but  with space at a premium they  will have to accept a general  offer of congratulations. It was  team work involving a great  of orgnization.

During the year the C.F.A.  added $11 new; members through  out British Columbia bringing  the membership up to a total of  2,018 paid members, the highest in the association history.  They also have enrolled 5,-25  junior members comprising  5,500 boys in the Junior Forest  Wardens and 325 girls in the  Girl Forest Guards.  Youth activities of the association expanded greatly last year  Summer camping programs  were increased and 512 youngsters had the opportunity of attending the fine camping facilities at Evans Lake for a period  of eight days.

Usually Mr. Henderson is  exposing government employees  who have been careless with  respect to government spending.  True, the act differs from year  to year. Rut some 'bad practices  have a habit of cropping up  again and again. These Mr. Henderson really has to hit hard as  defender of >the public purse.  One of these hardy perennials  has been the government's failure to implement all; of the recommendations in the Glassco  report. This report on govern-  mertt organization was. completed back in 1962. It pointed out  276 different ways in which the  government could save money.  Only 150 have been implemented  to date. More than 100 remain  to be tackled dif our civil service  is to save the taxpayers money  as it should.  A lot, admittedly, has been  done. Take for instance the installation of the treasury board  as the central planning agency  for all government departments.  A central data processing bureau has been set up. All government purchasing is now done by  a single department of supply.  And letter writing has given  ���way, in many instances, to the  Coast-Capilano Constituency  use  of  the   telephone,   thereby  cutting down on unnecessary paper work.  But there are other economies  which can, and must, be made.  Take for instance the $450,000  paid to OBC personnel dn 1965  for doing nothing. True, they  were protected by union agree-  : ments. But these agreements  should be scrapped when they  ; come up for negotiation again.  This was only one of literally  dozens of specific complaints  listed in the auditor general's  report. Take B.C. Hydro's failure to pay the federal sales tax  on natural gas for instance. It  owed Ottawa $112,000 at the end  of 1966.  Residents of the west coast  will perhaps remember the sinking of an oil barge in Howe  Sound in 1964". Raising this barge  and recovering the oil cost the  federal treasury $400,000. Next  time those who abandoned the  bulk should foot the bill for its  recovery. They, however, can  only be made to do this if appropriate amendments to the Canada Shipping Act are made.  I could go on. I could list  numerous other instances in  which public monies have either  been wasted or cannot be recovered from the guilty party. But  members of parliament spend  many hours going over the  auditor general's report with; a  fine tooth comb. They do this in  the public accounts committee  and they ask questions,��� hundreds of questions ��� aimed at  making sure that these things  don't happen again.  I only wish that there were  similar machinery for uncover-  1 inig waste and exposing our misdeeds in Victoria. We heed a  public watchdog there as well.  The . sooner !a "public "accounts  committee, including many opposition. M.L.A.'s, .gets going  there  the better.  1/   PRICE SALE  " ���      Come One Come All fo Ihe  THRIFT SHOP SALE  ST.

Memories are  sharpened, experiences recaptured. It is a day when togetherness  means so much and-as always with B.C. TEL���costs so little.  Now a student son or daughter away at college can afford a  long distance call home (especially if they call "collect"!).  Long distance rates are among the very few items of personal  expenditures which, over the years, have lagged far behind  the general rise in other living costs. In fact, many long distance  calls actually cost less in dollars and cents today than 10 years  ago. Moreover, after 6 pm and all day Sunday they are cheaper  by about one-fifth.  Check the rates yourself in your telephone book or dial "O"  and ask the operator. You'll be surprised how little it costs to  enjoy "the next best thing to being there."

To get rid of them, drench the  soil with ehlprdane, one level  teaspoon of.50-percent wettable  chlordane in' one quart of water.  Other harmless bugs are the  ^small, white jumping insects  known as springtails, which ak  isb live on organic matter.  These are seen on the surface  of the soil or in the water contained in the plant saucers.  These too, can be controlled  by chlordane mixed- as. above  or by malathion, half teaspoon  of 50-percent emulsifiable concentrate in one quart of water.  The , following are the most  serious pests of house plants:  Mealy bugs . are oval insects  with a mealy,:-waxy material  that is impervious to most insecticides. Scale insects, immobile insects related to the  mealy, bugs,, have scalelike  armor and are almost immune  to spray 'attacks. Aphids may  be black, red or green. Red  spider mites, small spiderlike  mites that weave webs on the  undersides of leaves and on  stems, flourish in our dry home  conditions, and once established will thrive and multiply.  A group of plants often has  its own specific insect that  seems to be particularly  troublesome. Examples are the  cyclamen mite or African violet  mite, the fern scale and the  cyclamen weeyil. These plants  may need special treatment if  you have large collections of  any of them.  The first measure of control  An enlarged  drawing of the  two-spotted or red spider mite.  for any of these insects is to  thoroughly wash the plants  under a tap in the sink. Mealy  bugs and scale will have to be  removed . first with the finger  nails, or stiff brush. Then, spray  commended insecticide. for the  particular insect present; 7  If you nave mealy bugs or  scale, spray with a malathion  emulsion, one teaspoon per gal-  Ion of water, or ��� wash the  leaves with a    nicotine,  soap  CPL.

The soap should; be first  mixed with hot water. A .commercial preparation containing  an oil and nicotine sulphate  provides good control for these  insects. Be sure to read the  label, because some plants are  easily damaged by the spray.  Red spider mites are best  controlled with a commercial  miticide, which is found in  many of the house plant sprays  or aerosols. It is also possible  to control the pests by a forceful water spray from a hose  or syringe. This is best done,  outside during mild weather or  in a sink under a forceful cold  water tap. ���'  Aphids may be controlled by  spraying or dipping the plants  in a malathion. emulsion or the  nicotine sulphate and soap preparation mentioned for scale  and mealy bugs.  These sprays may be had  from your seedsman in small  quantities and should be kept  on hand at all. times. Sprays  packaged in aerosol containers  can ,be bought and they are  easy to use and apply.  The most infallible way to  eliminate house plant pests is  by using preventative measures.  Insects that attack plants will  not breed in - a house where  there is no vegetation. They  must be brought in- with some  kind of plant material, flowers,  fruits, or new plants.  Each time you buy flowers  or plants watch carefully for  insects, and when you get a  others for a month. Then if no  new plant, isolate it from the  pests are present, put it with  your other  plants.  Be careful about new soil  you bring in. The kind you buy  at stores is usualy free of pests,  but earth you bring in from  your own garden may harbor  untold numbers of pests or  eggs.  Watch your plants for signs  of insect injury. Give them a  good spray under the bathroom  tap occasionally and they  should he entirely free of bugs.  Washing the dust off the leaves  will also improve their health.  There is no need to get special equipment for insect control of most house plants. AH  you need is a bucket filled with  an insecticide mixture into  which" the whole plant may be  plunged. When clipping a plant,  make sure y6ur fingers hold  the soil ball inside the pot, or  else the whole plant may slip  out of its pot and become immersed. Dipping is often much  more reliable than spraying,  since the whole plant will be  covered with the insecticide.  The water must be of room  temperature.

Gibson Girl Beauty Salon  Gibsons Village (Waterfront) Ph. 886-2120  see our European Wigs & Hairpieces ��� Sold & Serviced  DEAR DORIS  advice  from  Doris Clark I  The fresh fiance  DEAR DORIS ��� My daughter's fiance paws, puts his  arms around my daughter in  public, pulls her down on his  knee. She tries to push him  off, but he keeps on.  What does this indicate in  his character?  Worried Paw  DEAR PAW ��� That he can't  keep his hands off her, likely.  Many English Canadians find a  little restraint in public desirable, to say the least.  Yet   our   European   friends  ' show a good deal more affection than we do; and they have  a point.  Humans  need affection.  And so it goes. If your  daughter finds him too demonstrative when others are  around, have her mention it  when they are alone.  DEAR DORIS ��� My husband rejected our fourth child  right away ��� this would always be an unwanted child like  he was himself. He kept saying  this all during the pregnancy.  We just fell apart, although we  had always been very close.  He also wanted me to have a  sterilization operation, which I  had done right after the baby  was born, so we cannot have  any more children. Now I have  found out that he has lived a  double life with our church  soloist. This went on all during  the pregnancy.  I told our minister that the  rejection of our child has hurt  me more than his unfaithfulness. He cannot understand  this. I see our children as a  gift from God.  Rejected Too  DEAR REJECTED ��� In my  book he is the unnatural one.  Yet there is a subtle difference  in our approach here to infidelity; whereas some European  cultures can wink at this while  they turn things inside out to  provide happiness for their  children, bless 'em!  But I'd want to know what  started things falling apart.  With a background of rejec-.  tion, this unhappy man was  perhaps unready for the adjustments (including your  difference in culture) which  marriage demanded; and when  the glamor wore off, he looked  around for more excitement.  I'd guess the new attachment won't last either. Counselling might still bring hope.  For the children's sake, try it.  DEAR   DORIS ���  My  boy  (10) is greatly overweight.  The only help I received from  his doctor was "Don't let him  eat so much."  So I went on a diet with him.  He lost two and one-half  pounds in that first month and  gained back one pound. I keep  a graph on the cupboard door  which is coded so guests can't  read it and tease him. He is  learning which foods are the  weight bearers.  I give him 25 cents a week  if he holds his original weight;  50 cents if he loses.  He has learned that one slice  of bread and jam can be allowed where two, three and  four are not necessary. Eats an  apple for a bedtime snack.  He's active, shovels snow,  walks to school, plays violently  and normally. He finds it difficult to do gym work because  there is no one strong enough  to swing him over or hold  down his feet.  Comments Please  DEAR COMMENTS ��� Bravo! It would be folly to work  for any more sudden loss than  you are doing. With a growing  boy.you simply must keep on  with the nourishing, bone  building elements. This way,  your boy will learn good eating  habits.  My leaflet "Is Your Child a  Fatty?" may have a few more  hints for you; it is on its way  to you.  Being the right weight does  more than protect physical  health; the ragging a fatty  takes can do real harm to his  peace of mind.  DEAR DORIS ��� (1) How  long before the wedding  should a trousseau tea be  held?  (2) Are the sender's names  let on the gifts?  (3) Would it be proper for  the groom's mother to invite  some of her relatives and  friends, when the bride's mother doesn't know them?  Bride's Mother  DEAR    MOTHER    ���    (1)  Within a few days of the wedding; should be late enough  that just about all the gifts are  in and can be on display.  (2) No.  (3) Yes.

Any suggestions for better  and smother-looking lipstick application?  A. If you'll pat on a light  coating of powder over your  lips beforehand, the color will  go on more smoothly, will hold  more even line, and will remain  on longer.  Q. Do you advocate very tight  permanents so they will last  longer?  A. Not at all; The usual penalty of over-tight permanents is  two to four weeks of unbecoming frizziness. Much, MUCH better is too little curl at the end  of. a permanent's life than too  much at the beginning!  Q. My powder is continually  caking around my nose. What  can I do about this?  A. You might try- musing less  foundation, and spreading it  thinly. Probably the lighter  liquid type is best for you. Then  tissue-blot it to remove the excess before powdering lightly  over it.  Q. I've heard of the benefits  of steam-cleaning the face. How  is this done?     7 7  A. Either by holding your face  over a pot of boiling water with  your head covered with . a big  turkish towel (being careful, of  course, of steam burns) or by  folding a towel into two or  three layers, dousing in hot water, then putting this on your  face. You can do this two or  three times during the steaming, then dash your. face with  cold water to prevent too much  relaxation of the pores. Finish  up the treatment '��� by applying  a thin layer of skin cream and  leaving this on for at least a  half-hour. All this not only deep-  cleans your pores because of  the increased perspiration; it  produces, but it also brings a  wonderful natural blush to your  cheeks ��� a nice effect for special occasions. And also, your  pores will be especially responsive ..to massage after such a  treatment;  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. When a man is assisting a  woman out of an automobile,  should he take her hand >r her  elbow?  A. He should assist her by  placing a hand under her elbow.  Q. At a church wedding, on  which side of the centre aisle  should pews be reserved for the  bride's family, and for the  groom's family?  A. The left side (facing the  altar) for the bride's family,  and the right side for the  groom's family.  Q. When a girl is walking  along the street with a man  and he speaks to someone she  doesn't know, should she speak  also?  A. She should smile and nod  her head. This holds true for  the man also, should she speak  to an acquaintance.  Q. Is it in good taste to use  correspondence cards?  A. For the short, informal  type of notes, these cards are  in very good taste and quite  popular, too ��� for both men  and women. They should, however, be used only for strictly  informal correspondence.  Q. Where do the bridegroom  and his best, man go upon arrival at the church just before  the wedding ceremony?  A. There is usually a side  entrance near the chancel  where they enter, and where  they are joined by the clergyman. ���  Q. I have been asked to pour  tea at an afternoon social in  the near future. How long am  I supposed to remain at the  tea table?  A. Just so long as guests are  arriving and asking for tea?  Q. Should a college girl introduce herself as Miss Collins  er as  Janet Collins?  A. She should call herself  Janet Collins.  Q. Is one supposed to tip the  pdanist in a, cocktail lounge  when he or she has played a  special-request number for one?  A. Not usually, thds being considered a part of the musician's  job.
