 Vi^tor;ia,:-'__Y:;'C;-;  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 2, Jan; 11, 1968.  10c per copy  from Laing to Indians  Indian    bands    on    reserves   oose Band;   Chief Adam,  Slian-  were advised by Hon. Arthur  Laing, federal minister of Indian Affairs to go commercial  and make the most of their reserve holdings.  This he said Saturday at a  conference with four Indian  bands, Sechelt, Shannon, Clo-  qose and Homolco, in the Sechelt Reserve hall. Open to the  public the attendance was unexpectedly good with lessees  of band property presenting  their brief in which they asked  for relief from the provincial  government in connection with  the December storm damage.  The ministerial party had visited the damaged area earlier  in the day but no direct comment resulted!  An outstanding pan of the  meeting was the address young  Chief Theodore Joe read to  welcome the minister to the  band meeting. (It will be found  in full on page three). He spoke  up for a Canada not Indian  and not white man but one  Canada for both.  . Clarence Joe, spokesmen for  the Bands in presenting a brief  to the minister (in full on page  seven) outlnng what the Band  had done on its own down  through the years urged the  miister to consider construction of a community hall on the  reserve. Such a hall was greatly needed to provide recreation  facilities for the younger generation, he said.  In the party with Hon. Mr.  Laing was Jack Davis, M.P.  for Coast-Capilano arid: Paul  St.7 Pierre,---Vancoyyer^,Sun  writer known for^his articles  and movies on Indian life.  Leonard Marcharid of the Indian Affairs department, Ottawa, accompanied Mr. Laing. Indian bands represented, included Chief Theodore Joe, Sechelt  Band; Chief Billy Mitchell, Clo-  non'and Chief Solonian Harry,  Homolco   Band.  Clarence Joe raised the question of proper legal representation for Indians, complaining  that in the past insufficient advice was given in some cases  resulting" in court action. He  thought the bands should have  legal support. They did not  trust  superintendents.  Chief Billy Mitchell in addressing Mr. Laing expressed the  opinion that the brief by Clarence Joe was too limited and  failed to cover anything outside  the Sechelt Reserve.  Mrs. Beatrice Rankin appearing for Principal W. S. Potter  of Elphinstone school presented information on the integration of band members at schools  Principal W. S. Reid amplified  with information concerning  the Sechelt Elementary school.  (Mr. Potter's brief will be  found on page three.)  Norman Burley depicted with  stories of actual events how  the Indian lad was becoming  well versed in Scouting activities and Mrs. Iona Strachan  dwelt on local Indian maids in  the Girl Guide movement.  Various lessees on Indian  land in the Wilson Creek area,  after a brief had been presented (on page one) stresser  the need for some helpin conec-  tion with the December storm  damage in Wilson Creek  area.  At the close of the meeting  gifts for the minister were presented. Pearl Julian for the  Girl Guides presented a tray  and Steve Joe for Scouts, a  totem.  After leaving the Wilson  Creek storm damage area the  visitors and Indian chiefs and  others had dinner at the Calypso cafe in Sechelt. Towards  nightfall the ministerial party  motored to Langdale for . the  return  trip  to Vancouver.  *  Lessees ask for help  Help   as   ther vwere 7 f??^?? f * ���'���'.^?*i?n' ;& ^Y U Here^etthe\gifts^hich ,the  s.Ylh%*_4e^a^^  DON DOUGLAS  who was elected chairman of  the district school board at  Monday night's first 1968 meeting.

SECOND  DRAW  MADE  On the second draw ef the  DeMolay Candy Castle, Mrs.  Beatrice Rankin, Sunshine  Coast Highway, Sechelt, was  declared the winner.  Hon. Arthur Laing, federal  minister of Indian affairs . informed lessees on Indian lands  which suffered from the December storm damage that he  would do everything possible  to see what can be done about  the problem which the lessees  had presented in a brief to him.  Mr. Laing said that the lessees had to look to the Indian  -vband for  theY lessors  ceived by Mr. Laing at Saturday's, meeting m Sechelt follows:  The lessees of Tsawcome Indian Reserve No. 1, Wilson  Creek, would wish to endorse  the request of the Sechelt Indian band, that a proportion of  the tax collars collected by the  provincial government, as assessed by the provincial assessor's department, be allotted to  the Sechelt Indian Band council for the specific use of repairs and improvements to  roads, beach and services on  the above noted reserve.  It should be pointed out that  considerable damage to land  and properties on. I.R. No. 1  was caused at the time of the  high tides and gales of December 3 and 5, 1967, arid this will  entail much financial burden to  the lessees for the renewal of  frontage, property, automobiles and domestic equipment  (pumps, freezers, etc.)  The lessees are gravely concerned with the condition of the  road through the Reserve to  give access to the lots, and  which is approximately 2,000 ft.  in length. Most of the area east  of the motel was under water  up to a depth of at least five  feet and the part west of the  motel was also in several feet  of water as well as the motel  parking lot. The road in normal  times is in very bad shape and  letters have been written in the  past to the provincial minister  of highways as well as the pre-  First baby born in 1968  .

At the present time there is a  bad break-away on the road  which is highly dangerous. ���  Temporary attention by bulldozing, leaving an unsightly and  probably inadequate protection,  has been carried out by the local Indian band but this has destroyed access to the beach and  has deprived the lessees of  view and water frontage;  Since taxes  are paid to the  provincial   government   by   the  lessees,  for which no  services  are   received,   it   should   again  be stressed that the Sechelt Indian  Ban^  council  receive  an  annual allotment from the provincial government for the repair and maintenance of roads,  beach   protection   and   revision  of  lost   waterfrontage.   As   we  are taxpayers of. the provincial  government leasing Indian Reserve land, we would ask that  you   use   your  good   offices   to  discuss this matier- with the provincial government in the hope  that some solution may be found  to this problem.

Priority on sewers  Pay now; save later!  Gibsons ratepayers now have  a chance to save up to 5 percent on their tax by using the  new municipal council pre-pay-  ment tax plan.  This plan is based on a bylaw which was approved late  in November. It allows the taxpayer to pay taxes before July  1 and earn five percent on the  amount so turned in.  The prepayment period will  run from Jan. 1 to May 15 and  the interest rate will apply on  'he period between Jan. 1 to  June 30 after which date taxes  will fall due.  It will operate on the basis  that the interest will be added  to the prepayment amount so  that anyone paying $100 as a  tax prepayment will actually  have the $100 plus the interest  rate to apply to taxes when they  fall due after June 30.  The tax prepayment plan  is  not new.  It has been used in  other B.C.  municipalities     and  A sewage system which will  lead. to an unproved housing  program for Gibsons municipality was given top priority  in council operations by Chairman Fred Feeney after swearing-in ceremonies in the council chamber Monday night. Replying to criticism of council's  sewage plans he read the following  statement:  Consulting Engineer M. Dayton of Dayton and Knight Ltd.,  in a report on sewage disposal  to Gibsons council said that on  Nov. 20, 1967, he met the executive director of the Pollution Control Board in Victoria,  and discussed sanitary sewage  disposal for the Gibsons area.  The Gibsons 1963 plan comprised collection of sewage  from a sewerage area including  the village of Gibsons together  with about 800 acres of unorganized territory surrounding  Gibsons, and discharge of crude  sewage to Strait of Georgia.  The amended plan presented  to the board retained the same  sewerage area and outfall location but included a treatment  plant for the sewage prior to  also in larger cities throughout    discharge. Additional land would  Canada.  . - Some big cities have a prepayment plan which works on  the principle of five percent  for the month of January, four  percent for the next month and  so on down to one percent in  May.  So far no Gibsons taxpayers  be reserved near the outfall for  possible future intensification of  treatment.  A permit must be ootained  from the board for discharge of  treated effluent to the sea. Application for the permit should  be made if it is decided to proceed with a sewer by-law, and  have taken advantage of the it must be advertised in the lo-  plan but it is expected that cal paper for 30 days to allow  after today there will be some    any objections to be filed with  interest.  A   CRIBBAGE   29  Gus Schneider of Abbs road  who is a cribbage fan, when  playing with Ivan Skidmore,  Jan. 3 came up with a 28 hand  and then followed with a 29.  The game was being scored on  a new cribbage board. Mr.  Schneider is of the opinion that  it must toe a good board ��� for  him.  the board secretary.  The ceremonies were in the  hands of Magistrate Mittlesteadt who after swearing in  the chairman gave the oath to  new Councillors Ken Crosby  and Gerry Dixon. Rev. H.  Kelly of St. Bart's delivered  words of inspiration in pointing out that the trend of today's  Chairman Feeney appointing  chairmen covering the various  municipal departments named  Councillor Wally Peterson deputy chairman and to the planning and building departments;  Councillor Ken Goddard, health,  recreation and library; Councillor Gerry Dixon, fire, street  lights, harbor and water; Councillor Ken Crosby, roads and  airport; finance, the chairman  with Councillors Peterson and  Goddard.  Chairman Feeney in his remarks concerning future operations of council said of the  sewage problem that some consideration should be given to  areas outside the village  boundaries.  His policy, he said, would be  to avoid parochialism in council operations and work for the  benefit of the  Sunshine  Coast.  Following the short meeting  council adjourned and with  their wives and friends were  entertained with coffee and  cake served by Mrs. J. Mainil  and Mrs.  Nelson Moore.  Sechelt meeting  At Monday night's inaugural  meeting of Sechelt's municipal  council, Chairman William  Swain appointed councillor,  Adele deLange as deputy chairman, Regional District board  representative and Health Unit  representative. She will also  serve on council's finance committee.  Councillor Morgan Thompson  will head the airport committee, recreation, licenses and library. Councillor Harold Nelson  will look after roads, parks and  beaches and Councillor Charles  E. Rodway, buildings, fire and  with Councillor Thompson on  the airport committee.

Community  survey sought  An effort is to be made as  a result of recent educational  meetings over school dropouts  to arrange the formation of a  community council to cover the  Sunshine Coast.  This will be done if possible  through the Regional District  board and could result in a  far greater and intensive effort to get at problems in the  area.  The proposal was brought up  at Monday night's school board  meeting when Frank Fuller,  director of adult education introduced Henry Rosenthal, of  UBCs adult extension department on a Ford Research grant  in the field of adult education  for responsibility. Mr. Rosenthal outlined the scheme which  would entail making people become active in striving to ascertain the human resources  of the area and from this develop material which could be  used for the betterment of the  community.  The key to the proposition is  that the entire adult population would be put to work on  it and a visiting consultant  would develop the material so  gathered to find out what  could be done with it. He  visualized a great saving in  the overlapping of services now  available and greater co-ordination of social work could be  achieved.  Mr. B. C. MacKenzie, special  counsellor for the school district explained that the idea developed from the Pender Harbor PTA meeting covering the  dropout problem. Coast News, Jan. 11, 1968.

Arthur Laing, minister of Indian affairs, described  Chief Theodore Joe's greeting at Saturday's conference on Indian  affairs at Sechelt as being the most magnificent he had heard, he  probably meant what he said. It was a greeting which in view of  Indian troubles these days was one that fitted in with Hon. Mr.  Laing's recent remarks that Indians should stop feeling sorry for  themselves.  The young chief described himself as much more a product of  the non-indian education system and although there were differences of expression he was aware of the similarity of thought. The  country could not afford the luxury of citizens who have been  robbed or, worse still, have voluntarily surrendered their self-  respect.  In asking how this self-respect can be regained, he suggested  that a man has to feel that he has1 a worthy contribution to make  to the community as a whole. Then he asked what contribution  can we make, underlining the we.  The thoughts of a young Indian chief who would like to have  had quiet moments on the church steps as his forebears did were  even more definitely expressed. He said of the Indian movement  towards self-respect, that the country the Indian was now entering is big enough and great enough to be above the need for racism, discrimination and violent dissent. It is a good country to live  in.  His thoughts on what Canada was to him in 1968 revealed a  country which is no longer Indian country; and furthermore a  country which is no longer White-man country. It is purely and  simply Canada, OUR country.  Such words must have been sweet music to the minister as he  sat at the chairman's table waiting to hear the complaints of the  band. What Clarence Joe offered in the form of a brief to the minister asked for relief from provincial government milking of lessees of Indian lands without anything being returned by way of  services and the possibility of a recreation hall for the reserve to  help keep the younger fry out of mischief.  While nothing was definitely settled at the meeting it provided  an outlet for the bands to air their grievances. Apparently the Sechelt Band is in the mood to better its way of life and it is quite  likely the other two bands at the meeting were in agreement with  the idea as far as they were concerned.  A campaign blunder  A brave and bold political candidate invaded the Sunshine  Coast Saturday night and delivered a speech in Gibsons Union  Hall. There was nothing wrong with the speech except for one  thing, he kept referring to the Sechelt Peninsula as being his field  of operation.  Came the question period, the editor advised the speaker that  if he wanted to make his campaign thorough he should also campaign the Sunshine Coast of which the Sechelt Peninsula is one section.  Several days ago TV and radio announcers had next summer's  new government ferry docking at Sechelt Peninsula, regardless of  the fact the peninsula starts 16 miles distant from its Langdale  ferry slip.  Perhaps it is time the public in the area not on Sechelt Peninsula did some missionary work in order to publicize the fine district in which they live in the shadow of Mount Elphinstone. It is  an area which contains three-ififths of the population on the Sunshine Coast and is progressing quite nicely but should have itself  located correctly so that people desiring to visit the area will have  a correct focal point to reach.  No matter how you stretch your imagination it is difficult to  substantiate any argument that Langdale, Hopkins, Granthams,  Gibsons, Gower Point or Roberts Creek are on the Sechelt Peninsula. Wilson Creek and Selma Park are closer to it but still not  on Sechelt Peninsula. So ladies and gentlemen of political parties,  the press, TV and radio, learn to pinpoint your localities with reasonable accuracy. To be out one mile is not bad but to be askew  16 miles is terrible.  COAST NEWS  Elementary students at a new  Cranbrook school are re-learning how to listen. School officials attribute a marked  change in student behavior to  the open classroom concept  used by a North Vanoauver  building firm in designing and  constructing this   school.  Teachers have noted increased student response at recently-  opened Muriel Baxter Elementary school as a result Of two  or three classes sharing a large  teaching area without dividing  walls.  The open space plan has encouraged teachers to experiment in team teaching, according to P. B. Pullinger, Cranbrook district superintendent  of schools.  The $125,000 school is B.C.'s  first factory-built school using  the principle of large classrooms surrounding a resources  centre ��� containing library  and audio-visual facilities.  *  *  *-.  20 YEARS AGO  A ten-man cnostruction crew  has arrived in the area to work  on the extension of B.C. Power  Commission services in Pratt  Road and Porpoise Bay areas.  Installation of light on the  new government wharf in Gibsons has started with the contract being awarded to J. Dodd.  At the first meeting of the  year for Gibsons council Art  Hull was named chairman, Ben  Lang, roads, and E. Nestman,  water chairman.  Provincial government surveyors have been working on  the main highway with the view  of widening and grading it in  the  spring.  10 YEARS AGO  Danny Smith was elected Kiwanis club president at the annual meeting. Jules Mainil and  Keith Wright are vice-presidents, Don Macklam secretary  and James  Stewart,  treasurer.  A pastipresident's medal was  presented to Ron Northrup at  the annual meeting of the Pender Harbor Legion.  Work will continue on Gibsons water mains as a carryover from  1957.  Year end weather figures  gave 46.70 inches of rain and  snow with rain amounting to  43.43 inches in 1957. High temperature was 82.9 and low 10.5.  The modular building sections  used in construction of the 7,-  000 square foot building we're  manufactured in North Vancouver by Tecton Structures Ltd.  and transported some 600 miles  to Cranbrook, B.C.  The 150 students at Muriel  Baxter school, who previously  attended shift classes, are benefitting from a new achievement  in British Columbia building  schedules. They moved into  their new environment four  days ahead of a very tight  building schedule. Their modern school took 36 days to build  ��� and actual factory construction time was only 14 days.  The school is named after  long-time Cranbrook educator  Miss Muriel Baxter and is the  first stage of a planned 16-  classroom complex.  *      ���      *  By using the Tecton building  system, it was possible to build  the Muriel Baxter school in  North Vancouver, while at the  same time site preparation and  construction of concrete foundations progressed at Cranbrook. The major advantage*  with the Tecton system to  parallel these normally consecutive phases of constructian  is the key to reduced construction   time  and  costs.  Although the Tecton system  is an evolution of the prefabricating principle, the product  transcends the ordinary prefabricated building as it is commonly understood, such as a  series of components, such as  roofs, walls, floors, windows,  that are assembled and finished at the site.  *      *      ���  The 22    completely    finished  modules,   or   sections,   used  in  the   construction   of  this   build-,  ing were of two  sizes:  10 feet*  by  28  feet  and  10  feet  by  38  feet with clear roof spans over;  the full length of each section.  Sections  containing washrooms,  mechanical room,  medical and;  staff rooms  were  of the  rigid  type,   affording   factory   installation   of   electrical,   plumbing,  and heating     services.     These?  modules   were   transported   h>,  dividually  to   the   site   on   de-'  tachable trailer-type under carriages.  All modules which contained  essentially open space only  were of the folding type, iri  which supporting walls fold flat  between floor and roof sections..  This system permits stacking  of three modules for maximum .  economy in transportation.  Upon arrival on site the folding units were lifted from the  flat deck trailer using a crane,;  EXPECTANT PARENT CLASSES  Expectant parent classes  will be held weekly at the  Health Unit Office, Gibsons  from MONDAY, JANUARY  15th until FEBRUARY 19.

Placing of all rigid  and folding sections was accomplished in less than two  8-hour shifts.  jj:        *        *  In the case of Muriel Baxter  Elementary school, ��� the two  separate, large teaching areas  employ 38-foot and 28-foot long  sections of 9-foot and 10-foot  width. The. centrally located resources and service area consist of 28-foot sections and is  accessible directly from all  teaching areas. This eliminated  almost entirely the need for  wasteful corridor space. Noise-  absorbing floor carpet is used  almost throughout the building  with linoleum tile adjacent to  work counters and non-teaching  areas.  Schools Superintendent Pullinger credits the favorable  student-response to teachers as  a result of combined classes  and the low noise level due to  floor carpets. Students' attention is more concentrated, he  said.  The finishes for the Tecton  factory-built school system have  been specified to maintain the  quality of school construction  in B.C. The structural system  combines wood frame with  stressed skin panels, and  glulam beams. Prefinished natural hardwood panelling and  acoustic type ceilings provide  a   pleasant atmosphere.  Teaching areas are heated  by individual unit ventilators���  a modern heating system providing controlled heat and fresh  air.  Cloak space for each class  is contained in portable closets  which may be moved to provide  additional flexibility by teaching areas. This replaces conventional fixed walls and provides an informal and flexible  way to create some measure  of area division.  *      *      *  The smart exterior -appearance is highlighted by yellow  doors and window spandrels set  off against the grey exterior  siding and black and white  tascia's and exterior trim.  The new school will be officially opened Nov. 22 by its  namesake, Miss Muriel Baxter,  who retired in 1963 after more  than 40 years of teaching in the  Cranbrook area. Miss Baxter  started her career in a two-  room, frame structure in 1920  at Wycliffe, then a mill town  about 10 miles from Cranbrook.  She moved to Cranbrook two  years later where she rose to  become principal between 1950  and 1960 of the 18-room Central Elementary school. At the  time of her retirement, she was  supervisor of elementary instruction for both Cranbrook  and Fernie school districts.  When Miss Baxter visited the  new school, she was very impressed with the functional aspects of combined class activity  TFZ  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FO*  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers.

Arthur Laing, minister of Indian Affairs, at the  three-band meeting on Saturday in the Sechelt Reserve  hall, as a young chief spoke  his mind with considerable  . clarity.  At the conclusion of the greeting Hon. Mr.. Laing declared  it was the most magnificent he  had heard. The Coast News obtained a copy of the greeting  and has printed it here in full  just as he read it in the Reserve hall:  It is my most pleasant duty  today to welcome the Honorable Arthur Lainit? Minister of  Indian Affairs, to the Sechelt  Indian Reserve. This is the first  such,visit by a cabinet minister  to our reserve, so I cannot adequately express our feeling of  gratitude at this honor ��� other  than to say most sincerely,  "Thank you, sir, and welcome."  It is, of course, occasions  such as this that the Indian com  munity has been hoping for and  working, toward for years. We  are most aware that our whole  well-being now depends upon  our ability to achieve and maintain close communication with  high officials of government.  So again, to all you gentlemen  assembled here today to meet  and talk with us, I would express my own and my people's  most heartfelt thanks.  As one of the younger generation of chiefs, I would like to  say just a few words about the  way things look to me here at  Sechelt early in this new year  of 1968.  As you know, the Indian way  of education has always been  to have the young men sit with  the elders of the- tribe and listen. Clarence Joe tells me that  when he was young .his is what  he did ��� sitting on the steps of  the church here on the reserve.  I cannot say that this'has been  my experience. I am no doubt  much more a product of the  non-Indian education system  than  Clarence  Joe.  But even though there are  differences of expression, I am  aware of great similarity of  thought: In other words, I too  am working full-time at trying  If It's Electric Heating  Be sure fo Consult us on  MARKEL  ELECTRIC   BASEBOARD   HEAT  Sold and Serviced on the Sunshine Coasf by  McPhedran Electric  SUNNYCREST SHOPPING  CENTRE ��� GIBSONS  Phone 886-9689  BY NANCY  GAYLORD  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 180 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA.  So maybe sewing is not one  of your talents. That does not  mean you can't enjoy the fun  of adding decorative touches  to ready-made items���whether  it is Christmas or not. If you  can cut and iron, you can applique. It is that simple if you  use iron-on cotton fabric or  mending tape.  The Canadian Cotton Council  reports that iron-on fabrics  and tapes come in a wide assortment of colors . . . making it possible to create a  variety of striking designs.  Textures are varied, too, ranging from smooth combed cottons to corduroys.  You can give a quick fashion  touch to the plainest items with  this easy way to applique.  Start with a small item like a  headscarf, for example, and  then go on to try your skill at  dressing up skirts, blouses, and  other articles of clothing. Or  spark up solid-colored cafe  curtains with posy appliques in  contrasting  colors.  If you have an artistic flair,  create your own original designs . . . or you can find a  motif in almost any magazine  to copy. Wallpaper designs are  another good source for ideas.  Trace the design on the shiny  side of the iron-on fabric and  then cut it out.  To iron on the design, remember that the temperature  setting of the iron is dictated  by the fabric on which the motif is to be ironed. If it is a  cotton item, for example, use  a  hot  iron.  Lay the design on the item  with the shiny side down. Press  the design down firmly, rotating the iron slowly over the  area for about 10 seconds. Lift  the iron and then press again  for 10 seconds. Allow the item  to cool before moving.  The iron-on fabric adheres  perfectly to smooth textured  fabrics, and washes as well as  dry cleans.

It seems to me that what we  have to do is to find ways of  living in closer and closer contact with" the non-Indian community without ever making  the mistake of forgetting that  we are Indians. This is admittedly not an easy thing to. do.  But there can be no other satisfactory way. This country cannot afford the luxury of citizens  who have been robbed of or  worse still, have voluntarily surrendered their self-respect.  Now in order to retain self-  respect, a man has to feel that  he has a worthy contribution to  make to the community as a  whole. What contribution can  we make?  Let us say right away that  the function of basket-weaving,  animal trapping, totem-pole  carving, rain dancing and so  on are now reduced to the level  of entertainment or hobby-show  display. A man cannot live on  this kind of achievement and  social acceptance. What kind of  contribution can we as Indians  make to the community of Canada?  I believe that there are many  ���but one which I would like  to mention especially at this  moment is that of loyalty to  Canada and to the particular  community in which we happen  to live.  The merchants of the nearby  town of Sechelt know that the  Indian is a loyal customer. He  does not spend his cash in Vancouver and his credit here lo  cally. The Indian is also by nature a most loyal Canadian.  So at this time in our country's history when sections of  North America are seen to be  under attack by "flower children" and others���when the  trend of the times seems, to be  to see who can destroy a section of the community under  excuse of improving it���the Indian can make up his mind1 to  be especially loyal to the existing way.  We know, of course, that the  Indian has at least as much  reason for dissatisfaction and  dissent as some of the more  radical elements. But as I see  it, it is our function to remain  steady and patient and true to  ourselves in insisting that  change be brought about in the  least destructive way. It seems  to me that very often the non-  Indian way tends to defeat .itself by trying to achieve too  much too soon and by trying to  go too far in too big a hurry.  There must be change���and  big change. But let's try to do it  in what I would describe as the  Indian way. As I face my sec  ond year as chief, I can truthfully say that a little session of  sitting on the church steps' in  the evening with nobody saying  much and everybody thinking a  lot might be a real good thing.  In conclusion, I would say  that we all know that there was  a time when Indians were in  fact Second Class Canadians.  But that time is passing away.  Let us also permit it to fade out  of memory. Great new changes  will be achieved in our lifetime.  Let us work to help them happen.  If I may use a figure of speech  it is- now as if, after travelling  through heavy timber, we are  now finally arriving at a patch  of clear open- ground. And the  country we are entering is big  enough and great enough to be  above the need for racism, discrimination, and violent dissent.  It is a good country to live in.  This to me is Canada���1968.  A country which is no longer  "Indian country." And furthermore a country which is no  longer "White^man Country." It  is purely and simply "Canada  ���OUR  country."  CHIEF THEODORE JOE  Integration outlined  Elphinstone Secondary school  Principal W. S. Potter presented a brief to Hon. Arthur Laing  at the conference on Indian affairs at Sechelt Saturday. The  brief was read by Mrs. B. Rankin who replaced Mr. Potter  because of an earlier commitment. The brief read's:  Enrolment of native children  in Elphinstone Secondary school  began six years ago when a  small number of students enrolled at the grade 9 or 10 level.  The number grew gradually un-  "til in 1965-66 there were 30 from  grades 9 to 12, mainly at the  grade 9 level. In 1966-67 grade  8 entered bringing, the total  number up to 50. In 1967-68 there  are 51 enrolled by grades as  follows: Grade 12, .two; grade  11, one; grade 10, six; grade 9,  13; grade 8, 25 arjd occupational grades 2 and 3, four.  Today the number of children proceeding into grade 12  is small. In part this is due to  lack of boarding facilities for  senior students who were in  residence while in grades eight  and nine, and in part to the  heavy drop-out rate of the local  native students. However over  the past four years there has  been one student graduating  each year, and at least one of  these  has gone  on  to  further  training.  The social phase of integration has proceeded well. After  a period of initial shyness, the  native children mingled with the  Letters to editor  The letter that follows sent  to Mrs. Pearl Feeney, Gibsons,  speaks   for  itself:  Dear Mrs. Feeney: Please  accept, on behalf of all concerned at Central City Mission,  our sincere appreciation of the  most generous donation towards our work from the people of Gibsons. We note that  this was possible through not  sending local Christmas cards  and we like to ask you to kindly convey to all concerned our  heartfelt thanks for this  thoughtfulness.  It is gratifying indeed to  know that the responsibilities  and endeavors assumed by the  Mission are so readily shared  by those whose thankfulness of  their own success has prompted  the desire to help others. Again,  our many thanks to all.���Art  ,r^n, Community Relatians Officer.  non-native students in school  activites and sports. There has  not been" any serious problem in  the relationship of the two  groups.    Some of the native students  have found difficulty in fitting  in academically. The difference  in language ana cultural background, and the considerable  adjustment to the large departmentalized school have been  serious obstacles to satisfactory  progress. However, these are  being overcome, and should be  much less a problem when the  students now enrolled in the Sechelt Elementary school reach  the secondary school. Some students are making good progress  this year; others, particularly  those in the school for the first  time, may require an additional year to adjust.  From the standpoint of the  school, the integration of the  native children has created  problems, some of which are being overcome. In any case they  are more than compensated for  by the progress in social integration and by the progress and  adjustment of some students.  The school will _o all it can to  provide the native children with  educational opportunities equal  to that provided for the non-  native students.

It* s grand to get home  (By MARIE FIRTH)  Having spent the last week  visiting relatives in the Fraser  Valley, I can truthfully say I  am glad we live on the Sunshine  Coast. Sunday morning we  awoke to a heavy snowfall in  Surrey, which turned into a minor blizzard on our way to Co-  quitlam, where the snow was  around six inches1 deep. Being  Sunday,, the snow removal  crews were delayed getting on  the job, and cars were having  quite a time slithering and slipping on the unplowed roads.  Fortunately the freeway and  upper levels had been cleared  by early afternoon.  There was still quite a bit of  snow around at Gibsons, but  it disappeared in the area of  Roberts Creek and the rest of  the drive was lovely and we arrived home by the light of the  moon and stars.

With him was Robert Prittie,  New Democrat M.iP. for Bur-  naby-Richmond.  Mr. Prittie said that the New  Democratic Party across Canada would, during the next few  months, undertake a nation-wide  survey dubbed Operation New  Canada. Its purpose, said Prittie, is to ask the people of Canada the kind of social, economic and constitutional reforms  which are needed. It will consist of a survey, educational  workshops within the NDP, contact with representative occu-  ational and social groups within  society and teach-ins in various  parts of Canada.

He was nominated last August  and since has been visiting various areas of the constituency.  He discussed the problems such  as education, sufficient wharfage because of the swamping  of present facilities by pleasure  craft, floats for fishermen, housing and claimed that in the latter field socialism was working for the rich and free enterprise for the poor.  Mr. Prittie said the New Democratic party is committed to  the proposition that it is the  primary and essential role of  politicians to consult with the  people. This it intended to do,  on the widest possible basis.  The sounding of public opinion  and the creation of a swelling  dialogue is a means of reaching  a consensus on the role of any  government which hopes to  serve the needs of a modern industrial society. The New Democratic Partly doesn'/t pretend to have all the answers:  at least it is looking for them  in concert with the ordinary  people of Canada. David Hill  was the chairman.  Rev. Allan Bush, campaign  manager for Mr. Dent stressed  the need for organization and  outlined a campaign which he  said would require a $6,000 campaign fund. Complacency he  argued was the greatest menace in this constituency.  SECHELT O.A.P.O.

Jcfferys.  It was in 1755 that the Aca-  dians, long the pawn in the  continual conflict between the  French and the English, were  uprooted   from   their   farmland  and deported to inhospitable regions from Maine to Louisiana.  The Acadians refused to swear  allegiance to. George II, who  was to them a foreign king.  Governor Charles Lawrence regarded the Acadians as a threat  to British sovereignty in what  was then Acadie, and although  he acted contrary to his authority he banished 6,000 of  them. It has become one of  the most tragic acts in the his  tory  of the New World.  In their exile, the Acadians  founded an important colony in  Louisiana, and some of them  made their perilous way back  to their lands in Nova Scot:a.  Their descendants now live ;r;  increasing numbers in various  parts of the Maritimes, particularly in New Brunswick.

Raccoons have  personality  Insatiable curiosity is one of  the outstanding characteristics  of the raccoon. This and a  highly gregarious nature account for the fact that the coon  is one of the best known of  all wild things for they frequently bring him into the outskirts of even our largest  cities.  Because of the engaging  mask he wears, he has been  likened to the old time highway man and this is a good  comparison for he is, indeed,  a bandit at heart, as anybody  who ever made a pet of one  can testify with considerable  feeling.  A familiar member of every  farm woodlot community from  coast to coast, Procyon lotor,  as he is known to our game  biologist friends, is an engaging Tom fool in anybody's  woods, but truth compels us  to state that his habit of eating almost anything he can lay  his paws on has won him a  place high on the varmint list.  No henhouse or orchard is safe  when he is on the prowl.  Though he exacts a constant  toll from our farms and fruit  lands, this chunky, medium-  sized carnivore has wrangled  for himself a secure position  in the heart of almost every  nature lover by dint of sheer  personality alone.

The Canadian Medical Association says, there are at least  a dozen allied health professions, including dentists, dietitians, health educators, hospital administrators, nurses,  occupational and physiotherapists, pharmacists and medical  social workers. All of them  have at least a bachelor degree, and their undergraduate  education takes from four to  seven years.

As the great pyramid of discarded Christmas trees leaped  into light, the strains of When  the Saints Come Marching In,  rang out in the quite crisp night  air and as the flames leapt  higher and the sparks showered to the windward, the dancing lights from the fire caught  and glinted on the gleaming  brass of the instruments.

It was a fine performance,  well appreciated by the increasingly large group around  the bonfire. Number after number was played by these remarkable youngsters who braved the frosty night air that  nipped even through the gloved  fingers of those fortunate  enough to have them and chilled and chapped the lips of the  trumpeters.  Although the band was slightly   under   its   full   complement  of players, those who turned  out more than made up in  volume and performance for  those who were unable to make  the   trip.   The  hot   drinks   and  cookies served by the Kinettes  at the conclusion of the concert were enjoyed by all present, especially the chilled  youngsters in the ,band.  Through the entire performance until the last embers, of  the fire flickered out the band  stood its ground, cheered on  by all who attended the most  successful and enjoyable  Twelfth Night burning at Gibson's   Kinsmen's   Park.  Members of the Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary thank the public for the kind support offered  during the past year. Donations to the Thrift shop, bake  sales and teas have been most  generous, and.without this extra help the success of the  auxiliary's functions would not  be   profitable or   enjoyable.  The monthly meeting of the  auxiliary has been changed to  the afternoon commencing this  Thursday, January 11th at 2  p.m. ih the Health Centre. It  is hoped by having afternoon  meetings that more and new  members will be able to turn  out.  reading, attending courses and  seminars, and returning to university periodically to keep up  to date.  In addition to these allied  professions, there are other  ancillary health workers who  are playing an increasingly  valuable role in the health  field. These are medical technologists who'work under medical supervision in hospital  laboratories, x-ray departments and medical record libraries, and in the fields of  audio-visual aids, research, environmental hygiene rehabilitation, to name but a few.  Training in most medical technologies is available at the new  federal-provincial institutes of  technology in two-year diploma  courses.  As Canada's shortage of doctors worsens, the C.M.A. says,  these allied professions and  technologists will be called  upon to assume increasing responsibility in the field of patient care. Already in short  supply, they are important  members of the health team.

The first forestry. faculty in this country was founded in 1907 at the University of  Toronto followed in turn by the  Universities of New Brunswick,  Laval and British Columbia.  We take this opportunity of  welcoming you to the Sechelt  Reserve as the first minister of  Indian Affairs to pay us this  honor. We present this brief to  you as a resume of the background of our Sechelt Indians,  and hope that our requests will  be listened to and acted upon by  the federal government.  In the latter portion of the  1800s, the Sechelt Indians established their own community  Which later became Sechelt Indian Reserve Number 2 on the  shores of Trail Bay. This is now  the present Indian Reserve,  wherein the church and houses  now stand. Before the area became a reserve, the Indians  built their Indian homes and  buildings with lumber supplied  from Vancouver and Nanaimo,  and towed by their native canoes to the site.  All the buildings were built  by the Sechelt Indians from  lumber purchased by themselves with the money raised  from wages earned as self-employed loggers engaged mainly  in hand logging. The Indians of  Sechelt received no monetary  help from the government in  establishing their first community, and were most active  in recreational activities with  their own concert band and  many sports events took place.  The first school in the whole  of the Sechelt area, stretching  from the present town of Gibsons to the district well beyond  Pender Harbour, was completed in 1904, and was built entirely by the Sechelt- Indians,  personally, from lumber and  materials purchased by the Sechelt Indians, earned by the Indians themselves.  The Indians recognized the  need for education even to the  extent that they personally paid  for the upkeep of the school,  including  the board  and  room  and teaching expenses of the  Catholic nuns who provided the  teaching staff.  The Sechelt Indians knew  there were changes coming and  accepted and recognized the  need for integrated education,  and are now fully supporting  the educational system wherein  the Indian children attend public, schools in the area with non-  Indians.  In the early 19O0s, Indians  were all engaged *hr the fishing  and logging industry and this is  mainly so today, although commercial fishing for the Indians  of the Sechelt area is at best a  precarious living and most of  the logging camps have moved  from the district.  The Sechelt Indians realize  the importance of' vocational  training in the various skills as  an educational need to equip  them for changing times, and  hope that as in the United  States, the federal government  will encourage manufacturing  industries to establish themselves close to the Indian Reserve at Sechelt. The United  States federal government even  goes so far as to subsidize industry in part payment of Indian job trainee applicants close  to the reserves.  The Sechelt Indians are faced  with lack of employment opportunities close to the Reserve,  and point out that during the  1940s, 50s and 60s, the logging  camps employed Indians as  their top men in booming, rigging and on their equipment. At  least a dozen Indians from the  Sechelt Reserve receive employment as equipment operators on logging yarders and as  winch operators on stevedoring  jobs in the area. The Indians  point out that in the olden days,  they were all employed and almost  completely self-sufficient.

There are approximately 150 lots leased to  non-Indians on the various Sechelt Reserves.  At present the provincial government has collected approximately a quarter of a million  dollars in taxes from non-Indian  lessees, with no improvements  or facilities given to non-Indian  lessees on any of the Indian  land at Sechelt..  A large storm played havoc  with a portion of the land leased to the non-Indians on the Sechelt Indian Reserve Number 1,  and the lessees are insisting on  fixing these damages. The Sechelt Indians see no reason why  the federal government should  not negotiate with the provincial government to have part of  the one quarter of a million dollars collected in back taxes  used to repair this damage. In  any case, it has to be repaired,  whether the federal government  is required to do so or the provincial, and our band funds are  already committed for other  reasons.  There is one other present  matter that is requested for immediate action, other than the  damage to the non-Indians property, and that is the pressing  need for a community hall on  the Sechelt Reserve, that would  be large enough for indoor  sports such as basketball, volleyball, etcetera.  Before the school that was  built entirely by the Indians  themselves, previously mentioned, was taken over by the  federal government, our children used the school facilities  for recreational activities including sports and boy scout  work. We feel we have a right  to have this replaced by the  federal government in the form  of a large enough community  hall so that indoor sports activities can be held.  At present, we have offenders  from the Sechelt Reserve before  our courts, and we feel that the  main reason is lack of recreational facilities.  A number of our children have  joined the Boy Scout and Girl  Guide movement and the Band  Council is taking part in financing costs of their uniforms and  training. We wish to encourage  this type of activity and a proper community hall would help  a great deal.  In summary, we would request  Jhat the honorable minister assist us in repairing the damage  to non-Indian lessees land on  our reserve, and in providing  the cost for a appropriate community hall.
