The brief has been' sent to  various organizations asking  each to suggest whether a public meeting should be called for  further discussion of the brief's  contents.  '..'''��� -  It was read out by Clerk David Johnston to Gibsons council  at Tuesday night's meeting.  Chairman Fred Feeney declared he was all, for improving methods of educittion^out he added  as a council it could hot act but  individual councillors could  take-part in a public meeting.  Councillor Wally Peterson, in  view of Education, Minister L.  Peterson's move removing municipal councils from having  any -say in; school board budgets  said"that support of this brief  is the only way council will be  able to have any say in school  board affairs.  The brief discussed kindergarten, elementary and secondary  levels and also deals with report cards. Here is their brief  mailed to the Coast News un*  der the signature of Mrs. K. 2M.  Taylor.      /  It is the purpose of this committee of parents to remind our  school board that the important  and only purpose of a school  system is. to educate the children and prepare them for a  useful and rewarding role not  just in this community but in  our future world. .  It is'distressing to note that  in a district .that has a large, industry, a hospital ahd]various  career opportunities, so few of  our graduates * are preparing  themselves for these careers.  While the school board is constantly reminding the taxpayer  that we are a wealthy district  and prepare their budgets accordingly these costs are not directly helping students attain a  higher standard. I m p r o p e r  scheduling also leads to inadequate course preparation. One  example: Students in Grade 12  must choose between li? I rature  and chemistry. Both courses  important   and   should   be  are  (Continued on Page 5)  LIMERICKS ANYONE  There was a young hippy named Stitch,  Who slept one night in a ditch'  But it weren't very nice  For 'twas crawling with lice  And  he was bothered all day  by an itch.

W. Booth,  president, announces.  The revisions will call for adding one member to the board  of trustees, to represent the  hospital auxiliaries; raising the  purchasing order limit firom  ?2i90 to $400; and also to inY  crease the limit o_ outJtJartding  indebtedness to $40,000. It is  now $20,000.  Two jet airliners have been  chartered by B.C. Liberals to  carry delegates, alternates and  supporters to the party's national leadership convention in Ot-  awa April 3.  Land seekers!  Northwest Territory people as  well as some from Washington  state are making enquiries to  Sunshine Coast real estate offices seeking acreage and waterfront property.  Such demands are becoming  heavier than they were five  years ago according to various  operators. The demand for waterfront property is very strong  but.there is not much.that can  be done about it as most waterfront land is under control of  residents who.have no desire  to move.  What is the future of public  school accommodation in this  school district? This and other  questions, Tv^inYbe explored I at  the 7 school "board educational  meeting, Monday, March 25 at  7:30 p.m. in EphinstoneYschool  'library.'. '.������ Y ;-; - "������7:  Mr. Gordon Johnson, district  superintendent and a p^neI7 of  trustee' and ws^b^- principals���  ^ill make'the lnitial^pr^sehta-  tion of facts to the public,about  referendum on a school building  program.  Two major facets" of the possible building program will be  discussed-: Addition to the Sechelt   Elementary   school,   and  provision for Secondary School  expansion.  The location of a new second1-  ary school, and the reason for  addition to the Sechelt school  fill be discussed.. Questions will  be invited.  An educational meeting will  also he held on April 1 in Madeira Park Elementary School  Activity room at 7:30 p.m. for  residents in- the ;;Render? Har-Y  hour area. Mr. Johnson will  chair the meetings; on the panel will be Mrs. Sheila Kitson,  trustee, and Mr. W. S. Potter,  Mr. Don Skelton and Mr. Sam  Reid, all school principals. Residents are urged to attend the  meeting in their area.  to speak  H9W to make our community  a better place in which to live  is the subject of a talk to be  g'ven by Jack Davis M.P. on  March 22 in the Elphinstone  auditorium, Gibsons at 7:30  p.m. Although Mr. Davis is our  .present representative in Ottawa this is in no way a political  meeting: Mr. Davis is personally concerned with community  betterment and his talk is '\ expected to spark some lively discussion.. To this end a supporting panel of local resource people covering a wide area of interest has been arranged.  The Sunshine Coast Arts Coun  cil, sponsor of this meeting, is  dedicated to the enrichment of  life in the community and com-  r muhity  betterment  is  the   cornerstone of all their activities.  A  recent visitor  to  Gibsons,  Prof.   R.   Jones, a   sociologist  from   Pennsylvania   State   University urged educators to take  the lead in working towards a  society which can find the unity  'in diversity necessary to ensure  mankind's   continued   existence  on this planet. Here on the Sunshine Coast we have diversity in  plenty,  people of many different cultural backgrounds, some  who have come here from the  four corners of the world.  Mr. Davis in his talk could  stimulate a self-evaluation study  of the community and it is hoped that those who plan to attend will ^accept the challenge  of such questions as how do we  as a community utilize our human resources Are we encouraging the truly creative? Do we  recognize the idealism and enthusiasm of our young people as  our greatest resource? Can we  provide a continuing experience  in : communication betw e'en  young and old, Indian and non-.  Indian, conventional and eccen  tric, resident and vacationer?  Mr. E. C. Sherman, resident  manager of the Canadian Forest Products pulp mill at Port  Mellon will introduce the speaker. The meeting will start  promptly.at 7:30 p.m. as Mr.  Davis has,to return to Vancouver immediately afterwards. H.  Klyne Headley will be chairman.  sr. citizens  7 Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens Housing Society directors  Tmet recently at the Sechelt  home of Mr. B. J. Lang and  were pleased to receive word  :������ that the appeal for financial  help from government had been  accepted in principle and would  be implementedy about April 1.  This means that construction  should follow shortly and also  that the beautiful brochure can  be distributed.  j Mr. Eric Rosen of Roberts  Greek was elected to the board  pf directors to replace the late  Captain Higgs. He was made  acquainted with the history of  the project. ,  .:. Word was received that the  Kiwanis Club of Gibsons was  interested in senior citizens'  homes and it was agreed that  representatives be invited to a  directors' meeting. It was pointed out that the directors of the  Sunshine Coast Housing Society  had screened two sites in Gibsons and three in Roberts Creek  along with a number in the  Sechelt, Half Moon Bay area  before deciding on the present  site which seemed to meet the  needs of the older people a  little more fully. There are a  great many factors which have  to be considered as the brochure  will outline. .  It was agreed .hat all memberships taken out in the housing society after November  1 last year should be considered as paid up for 1968.  e \'Onev. inter^ingY^tem 7 -at-..th e?  meeting came from a letter  from Canon Alan Greene from  London, England. While he was  aboard the S.S. Dinteldyck en  route; lie held a service, took  up a collection for the; Senior  Citizens '7 Homes and forwarded  a cheque for. $47.  The directors will meet again  . shortly at. the call of the chair.  DELEGATES CHOSEN  The Sunshine Coast Liberal  association at its meeting on  Friday, night of last week at  the home of Joe Benner in Sechelt, selected four delegates to  attend the Liberal party leadership   convention   in   Ottawa.  Chosen were Norman Watson,  Joe Benner and Clarence Joe.  of Sechelt and. Miss Heather  Wheeler of Gibsons.  ABOVE IS THE SECOND part of the destruction toy fire of one of  the oldest homes built in this district. Its last occupant was Chris  Jorgenson. Earlier this year as a practice the building on the flats  in the Giibsons bay area was set afire and the firemen vanquished  it in good time. This time they let it completely burn down, Monday  night. .  Plan comfort station  in centre of Gibsons  A proposal for a ground level  comfort station on the Bank of  Montreal corner of Gibson park  Marine Drive, came 'before Giibsons council at Tuesday night's  meeting.  Council regarded it as a step  in the right direction and after  consideration decided- to ask its  originator, A. Alan deBou, landscape specalist, to provide sufficient detail so it could be put  out to tender.  It would be constructed close  to the street in front of the holly  trees, with its double entrances  facing the parking lot. It. will  be of double rock wall construe-,  tion, maintaining a rustic effect. Cost is expected to be in  reluctance but as a previous license for TV repairs in a home  was granted, councillors except  Councillor Crosby, voted in favor.  The council was not happy  over the school board^s desire  for a crosswalk across North  Rd. at the elementary school,  regarding it as a step backward. However, after debate  council decided to arrange for  the crosswalk.

Higgs, oldtimer, dies  Captain Thomas Leonard  Higgs of Gibsons, B.C. passed  away in hospital in Vancouver,  B.C. on the morning of March  14th, 1968, at the age of 78.  His death brought to the close  a long and useful life connected  almost entirely with the sea.  He. was born in Netherton  Hampshire, England in 1889  coming to South Pender Island  with his mother, Mrs. L. S.  Higgs in 1892 to the home which  had been developed by his  father, Lewis Leonard Spalding  Higgs where his childhood was  lived until entering the towboat  and shipping industry as a very  young lad.  His first employment was  with the Young & Gore Tow-  boat Company when he joined  the veteran tug Sea Lien as  deckhand when she was tied up  awaiting favorable weather to  proceed from Pender Island to  the United States withv,a tow  of logs. Later he left the *tugs  and joined the passenger vessel Iroquois owned by Captain-  Sears of Sidney. This vessel���  was lost off Sidney, B.C. in  1911 with all but a few # its  personnel and passengers.  Prior to this, Tom Higgs had  joined the pioneer towing firm  of Greer and Coyle of Vancou  ver where he was continuously  employed until the commencement of World War One at which  time he entered the Royal  -Canadian Navy and saw active  service overseas ��� until 1919  when he re-entered the service  of the Coyle Company to be  their senior master for many  years until leaving their employment in 1930 to join his  brother, Capt. W. Y. Higgs in  the founding of the Gabriola  Island Ferry service where  they, as partners, designed and  built the ferry Atrevida. This  vessel operated under provincial government charter from  1931 until 1946 under the Higgs  brothers management at which  time she was sold to Captain  H. C. R. Davis, of Nanaimo  who continued to operate her  on that route.  Captain Higgs has been semi-  retired and living in Gibsons  for the past 13 years and leaves  his - wife Kathleen and three  sons Martin, Gerald and John  also his step-son Walter Cul-  linan of Nanaimo who are all  Master Mariners. He also  leaves his stepdaughter. Mrs.  Dorothy Strieker residing in  Surrey, B.C.  Among the very wide interests Captain Higgs pursued  over the years was the exploration of particularly, all parts  of British Columbia, of which  locality he was very well informed as to its history, natural resources, hunting and  fishing.  Cremation will follow the service which took place at  Harvey's Chapel at 3 o'clock  Saturday afternoon, March 16  and upon Captain Higgs' own  wish his ashes will be com��  mitted to the sea at a later  date.  To curb noise  Noise from motor vehicles is  the subject of a new motor  vehicle regulation which reads:  No person shall start, drive,  turn, or stop any motor vehicle  or accelerate the vehicle engine while the vehicle is stationary, in a manner which  causes any loud and unnecessary noise in or from the engine, exhaust system, or the  braking system, or from the  contact of the tires with the  roadway.  The law is aimed at loud and  unnecessary noise ��� noisy exhaust systems, squealing tires  when turning corners, fast get-  a-ways from stop signs when  tire squeals result. All of these,  and others, are in the loud and  unnecessary noise category.  Drivers who fail to comply  with this law face court prosecution and driver's licence suspension. The new regulations  provides a means to deal with  this problem. Most of the objectionable noises are evidence  of unsatisfactory driving attitudes by show-offs, attention-  seekers, and fast and impatient  drivers.

RIGBY)  It   has   been   an   interesting  and enlightening experience :for  me to act as returning officer  for the school board of Sechelt  School  District  46,   on  two  occasions in a few short months.  I acted first in December when  the     rural     school  board was  elected,   and   recently   on   the  -^plebescite regarding a Regional  College. I have met many fine  and co-operative    people,    and  ���have  seen areas t didn't know  existed. This; has been rewarding  forv me.   However,. I  have  discovered   that   very   few   of  the residents of this area, and  I imagine the same is; true in  any  other   area,   know  who  is  eligible   to  vote;   how   the voting  lists  are * compiled;     '. nor  whose responsibility it is to. see  their name is on the list.  Our     forerathers     fought for  their right to vote, but we seem  to   assume   that   someone   else  will   look  after  our   rights.   By  this. I mean  that  the average  voter takes it for granted that  because   his   name   was   on   a  federal or a provincial list,  or  because he has owned property  here   for   15  or   30   years   and  was   on  the   last list,   that   he  will   automatically   be/ on   the  present     list.     Therefore,     he  doesn't     bother    to  check the  lists    when     they  are  posted;  doesn't   know   if   his   name   is  on  the list,  and is  either chagrined or furiously angry when  a  deputy returning  officer  has  the   unpleasant   job   of   telling  him he cannot    vote    because  his name is not on the list.  To begin, with, federal and  provincial elections are resident elections and personal  enumerations are made by  teams    of     people going from  77-Y.Yr ���' Y,YY7Y,'   y  door to door>.orJcards;are sent  out for; would-be yoters  to fill  in and return^However,  muni-'4  cipal,  rural and regional yelec-  t'ons. such1 as we have for the  villages of Gibsons and; Sechelt  and -for; the rural areas, are  for land owners subject to vote  and to tenant and resident electors on all matters^ except those  pertaining to. the spending of  moriey. '    Y  Y ������"��� '������*���   ���'���    *   ' '    * ;' '7 _;  The lists for such elections  are compiled, in our case, in  New Westminster and are required by law to be in the  hands of the municipality and  school board by August 1. They  in turn have a public stenographer in New Westminster (because the books are there)  break down these lists in Rural  A (Nelson Island to Sechelt)  and Rural B (Selma Park to  Bowen Island) and the two  municipalities.  The area is just too large for  the  school board office  or the  municipality     offices    to. know  each   land   owner  individually,  and if an error or omission occurs there is no way of know-  this  unless the  individual  who  is  omitted  checks  the list and,  appeals   to   the   Court   of   Revision,   which   is   held   in   September,  and which is annually  advertised in  the  Coast News.  It is the duty of each individual  tax-payer   to   protect   his   own  right  to vote  by checking  the  list;   and   unless   he  does   so.  there   is   no   way   of   knowing  an   omission   has   been  made.  This   check   by   the   individual  must    be    done annually. The  saddest  duty I've  had to  perform   as returning   officer   has  been to tell upset-land owners  they cannot-vote because their  name is not  on the list.  'TThere^ are also many people  who.,have; a right to vote and  they do not know it and have  no idea it. seems as to how  they can have.their names put  on the list. There are resident  electors ��� e.g. the property is  registered in the name of: one  spouse only,7 the other must ap-  fpeal to the Court; of Revision  annually in order to have his  or 'her vote. There are tenant  electors��� e.g. people who have  .- lived here for six months. They  too can appeal to the Court of  Revision annually. This is a  small price to pay for the right  to vote.  As I have talked to people  I have stressed over and over  again the necessity of checking the lists when they . are  posted. Notice of posting is advertised in the Coast News  each August; notice of the  Court of Revision is also ad-,  vertised. Will you do as I have  done ���- mark on your calendar  for the month of August to  check the hew lists and follow  the directions of the advertisement re the Court of Revision?

Phone 886-9689 Government, labor argue  ill33  HON. ISABEL DAWSON  The people of British Columbia have been fed a lot of  patent and irresponsible nonsense about Bill 33 which is a  most progressive and new government measure designed to  streamline and improve labor-  management relations in this  province.^  This was made abundantly  clear by the minister pf labor,  the Honorable Leslie R. Peter-,  son, during his speech in the  Legislature in which he explained the principles of the legislation.  Mr. Peterson was so adept Jn  demolishing the arguments  which have been voiced by a  minority of militant labor leaders and their political allies  that the opposition appeared  dispirited and could only sit  in their seats in stunned silence.  The minister was particularly  effective in dealing with the  charges that Bill 33 will bring  about an end to free collective  bargaining and is a vicious  form of compulsion^ aimed at  destroying the trade union  movement.  As he so rightly pointed out;  Bill 33 is an earnest and sincere attempt to put industrial  relations in the province oh a  firmer basis. The most satisfactory method of settling industrial disputes is through  normal collective bargaining,  with a minimum of assistance  or interference by the^ government. The compulsory features  of the bill will be invoked only  as a last resort where the welfare of the public is affected.  Bill 33 is not intended to, and  will not create a strike-free oi*  lockout-free   society.  He also said: Regardless of  argument to the contrary/ it is  now generally recognized that:  binding awards in certain disputes is preferable to the consequences of strike or lockout  action.  The minister explained that  any authority, by its very nature, is forced to justify its.  decisions. Had the government  wished to shirk its responsibilities of deciding when, in order  to protect the public interest'  and' welfare, there should be  no strike or lockout,* it could  easily have placed that responsibility ,on the impartial Mediation Commission. But the responsibility for making that  decision has been placed where  it belongs ��� on the government.  If the government does not act  responsibly in this matter, it  will obviously have to answer  to the people of this province,  and there is no doubt what the  answer would be. The remedy,  if used indiscriminately, will  defeat itself and it therefore  cannot and will not be applied  automatically and invariably.  Employees, if repeatedly denied  the right to strike would not  respect the law. They would  ignore such a law and take  strike action. The problem is  to confine arbitration to the  smallest area that is feasible  and to see that the principle is  invoked only in extreme circumstances ��� when the good  of the general public is seriously indangered.  Therefore it, is difficult. to  come to any other conclusion  than this ��� those who are so '  bitterly criticizing this new  legislation are doing so strictly  for personal and political reasons rather than concerning  themselves wth the public welfare and safeguarding the provincial good. ��� _  The government is responsible  to the people and. acts respon-  . sibly. Surely this responsibility  should ensure that there will  be no abuse of power because  public respect for the actions  of the government remains vital  to any successful government.  I have asked the minister of,  labor for copies of his clear  and concise explanation of the  principles of Bill 33 and I will  be shortly sending copies to  you, my constituents. There  have been so many irresponsible and false statements made  concerning Bill 33. that I believe it essential for all of the  people to understand the true  facts of the matter ������ so they  may judge the merits of Bill  33 for themselves.  met. with the officers of the-  lower mainland locals on Surt:  day, March\l0, in Vancouver,  for the purpose of considering  the provisions of Bill 33 as it  affects labor generally and  government employees in particular.    .  Bill 33 prohibts the, common-  law right ..of government employees to take strike action  but does not substitute (as^a  right,; arbitration with provision  for binding award. The officers  expressed the view that it is  incredible and, in fact, inconceivable  that  the  common-law  right to strike should be denied  citizens who,happen to be employees ��.^constitutional government and Nwho, at the same  time, are -denied the absolute  right to. refer matters in dis-  ,pute to the mediation commission which will in effect be a  board of arbitration. It has been  suggested that it will be "the  policy of government to refer  unresolved issues to" the": media-.  " tion commission. The ; officers  of the .association and locals,  however, hasten to remind all  concerned that if we are to  assess, good will and good faith  in the future, in the light of the  past, there is little hope that  unresolved issues will be referred to the mediation commission. It is more probable, based on facts to date, that the  government will not refer issues  to the mediation commission  and even if they-are referred,  the findings of the commission  will' only be considered binding if they are in favor of the  government. '��� >Y  The  officers   expressed  complete and absolute opposition to  the denial of the worker's right  to   withdraw   his   service.   The  present proposed legislation,  as'far as provincial government  employees are concerned, is infamous in that it destroys the  right to take strike action which  has existed to date and substitutes nothing in "it's place  other than a reference to a  mediation commission and only  at the will of government and  that the findings of the commission will be binding only if they  are satisfactory to; government.  The following is part of a  statement issued by Ray Hay-  nes, Secretary-Treasurer of the  B.C.  Federation of Labor.  One of the most disturbing  aspects  of  Mr.   Peterson's   re-  Coast News, March 21, 1968.    3  marks is his repeated use of  the traditional totalitarian  justification of convenience for  the elimination of freedoms. We  recognize that freedom and  civil rights are inconvenient at  times, but thousands of our  people in generation after generation have died for those  rights and freedoms, irrespective of  their inconvenience.  In rejecting the present  necessity of calling a special  session of the Legislature to  deal with situation endangering     the     public welfare,  Mr.  (Continued on Page 6)  PACING   PROGRESS...  No Canadian should remain indifferent to the fact that there is, in this  country, a program whose objective is to promote progress in disadvantaged rural areas.  ARDA is a joint Federal-Provincial program arid its.goals are to  increase income and employment opportunities of rural people and  increase the efficient use of rural lands.  In order to achieve these objectives, ARDA is using various means:  ��� land use has been improved on two million acres in Western  Canada through community pastures, grazing reserves,  recreation and wildlife projects.  ��� rural people are being assisted to find alternative employment opportunities.  ��� new jobs are being created through resource development  projects in rural areas.  ��� comprehensive regional development programs are underway in the Interlake District of Manitoba and in the Edson  District of Alberta. The Interlake program under ARDA/  FRED provides 85 million dollars of federal and provincial  funds for human and physical resource development.  ��� over 40 million dollars fiaye been committed to drainage,  flood control, irrigation system renovation.and land conservation projects throughout Western Canada.  In brief, social and economic development for rural pebple and optimum  utilization of natural resources are the two concepts inspiring ARDA.  Officers of the B.C.

Oil gold no  help to Arabs  - Gold accumulating front: sale  of oil in the country in and  around the Gaza strip in Palestine is not being used for .the  betterment of the natives. As  David W. Jenkins, Red Cross  executive' director who served  in the UNEF, said during illustrated lecture it's going under  .he table.  Mr. Jenkins lectured following the dessert party of United  Church Women in the church  hall bri Friday evening of last  week. More than 125 persons  attended the event.  Mr. Jenkins, who was a major  in UNEF patrolling the Gaza  strip did not present a pretty  picture in. the role of the natives who are apparently lead-  erless and at the mercy of  .existing conditions which would  leave much to be desired , in  any population.  His colored shots were interesting from a scenic point of  view and also for the characterization of natives. The work"  of UNEF was administrative  and also in the line of communications.  His examples of the work  done by the Israeli agriculturists compared with those of  Gaza strip natives revealed an  astounding Yiifferencej with the  Israeli' using \ modern methods7  and the Gaza strip natives their  centuries pld methods. ::'    7     < -  He told of the period when  the UNEF was ordered to depart from the Gaza strip some  time before the opening of the  war which saw the Israeli victorious in a matter of a few '���<  days. He did hot appear optimistic about a general improvement in that area.  John My Usher  John Melvyn Usher of Gibsons who died March 15 was a  high ranking- officials of the Independent Order of Oddfellows  having become associated with  that order years ago when he  lived in Eastern Canada.  During the First World War  he was a member of the First  Division's Machine Gun battalion. Both he and Mrs. Usher  moved to Gibsons more than  20 years ago and at one time  ran a small variety shop.  Mr. Usher was a valiant fisherman and could.be seen most  any day walking; towards his  boat with lines and net headed  for the good fishing spots off  Salmon Rock.  He leaves his wife, Florence  and three sisters, Mrs. E. Hiltz  of Sudbury, Ont., Mrs. W.  Wright of Gogama, Ont. and  Mrs. L. Gravel of Little Current, Ont.; one brother Clifford  of Dearborn, Michigan.  Mr. Usher was a member of  Sudbury Lodge 282 and ah associated member of Sunshine  Coast Lodge 76. He was a member of Sudbury Encampment  No. 99 IOOF and the DDGM in  the subordinate lodge and DDG  Patriarch of   the encampment.  Cremation arrangements were  made through the Memorial  Society of B.C. and First Memorial Services Ltd. A memorial service is planned.  Heed volunteers  President Mrs. J. Parker presided at the monthy meeting of  the Sechelt Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital, when reports  from the various committees  showed all events planned well  in hand. Members are looking  forward to the Regional meeting in Sechelt on April 24. Delegates from-; the lower mainland  will attend.  Volunteer hairdressers are  asked to communicate with Mrs  Norman Burley. This service is  greatly appreciated by the patients and it is hoped that more  help can be obtained, not necessary to be a professional.  Mrs. J. Redman will convene  the annual luncheon to be held  on June 6. ������  ers  AT THE UCW Dessert Party  which was attended by more  than 125 persons Friday night in  the United Church hall in Gibsons Mrs. J. Mainil (above) is  helping Elphinstone school principal W. S. Potter to a slice of  luscious pie. Observing -the  scene are Rev. and Mrs. W. M.  Cameron. At the conclusion of  the evening what was left in  pies; were auctioned off. The result of the venture was very ac*  ceptable financially.  Board continues  college committee  The Regional College committee for this school district will  be retained as an operating unit  so it can explore further into  the college problem. Trustee  William Malcolm urged that the  board should keep its foot in  the door. As a result a motion  passed retaining the present  Regional College committee. Y  ���-'��� At present if students desire;,  to attend that college they;  might be able to get in but  would have to pay a higher  rate and the board would be  paying its way on a pupil basis  , only.  The board agreed that it was  : planning to build a secondary  schbolin Sechelt but its actual  location was still undecided.  Use of Gamlbier Island's hall  for election purposes was arranged by the board as the result of. complaints" oyer the use  of a private house: In the college plebiscite the home was  .used, because it was a warmer  place.  St. Bartholomew's ACW urged the board to ..reconsider its  rental: cost for the use, of school  halls for church bazaar purposes. If, the set rate was continued it would be in the terms  of the ACW a major disaster.  This and another complaint of  a similar nature \yere turned  over to the policy committee  for consideration.  What to do in the event Halfmoon Bay school closes at the  end of this term received considerable discussion. Trustee  Malcolm wanted the students  sent to Madeira Park school.  Supt. Gordon Johnston maintained Sechelt schools were  closer but said he was leaving  it up to the board to decide.  The closing of the Halfmoon  Bay school would not be done  until it was absolutely necessary. No teacher will be provided for Egmont school next  term. These children will attend Madeira Park school.  Supt. Johnston reported that  his conversations with Victoria  , officials regarding building of  rooms or new schools, that the  ' additional school room formula  of $22,500 per room did not apply to new school construction.  The title of Robert Rutter,  present maintenance supervisor  has been changed to superintendent of buildings and grounds  along with a salary increase dat-  ingback to the date of his employment with the board.  Roads department officials  are riot hopeful of a flasher  being placed to control traffic  at the North Road highway  corner. Arrangements have  been made to close the North  road elementary school gate to  direct the pupil traffic to the  main entrances where they will  have access to defined crossings. George Cooper, school  principal, wrote parents and the  PTA for patrol volunteers during hours when children leave.  One parent responded.  W. L. Reid, principal of Sechelt and West Sechelt Elementary schools reported his pupils  were taking part in an exchange  program entailing eight pupils  from his school attending a  Seattle school while eight from  that school attend the Sechelt  school. The Seattle .school, is an  integrated, school. He reported  that Sechelt parents were most  receptive   to  the  idea.  The school district Administrators' Organization sought  commencement of the new  science curriculum from  grades one to seven. Trustee  Leo Johnson was of the opinion  the board- should first get the  senior , science classes better  equipped before planning any ex  tension  into   the 'lower- grades.  Principal M. -B.. Mactavish of  Roberts Creek school complained over budget treatment. He  said he had slashed his requirements 10 percent as asked but  when the budget appeared he  found his allocation/down 36  percent. Chairman Don Douglas  explained that this year's budget had caused considerable  trouble but new procedures  would be set up for next year.  Earlier Trustees Johnson remarked that he would like to  have. had the principals sit in  on the budget cutting.  Board members discussed the  Community Council concept as  one funning headlong into a  similar plan presented by the  Arts Council and Trustee Mal-  calm was of the opinion one  of them should bow out. It was  suggested both should confer  to determine objectives.  -The fire hydrant to be placed  on Elphinstone school grounds  will cost the board $610. Total  cost to tie it into the village  water system will be slightly  more than $1,000 mark and the  village will assume part of that  cost while tjradesmen in the  area the remainder. The school  board pays for the work entailed in placing it on school  grounds. The council has ordered a six inch main to feed it  in place of the present aged  three inch pipe. This flow increase will greatly assist the  water pressure in the upper  stories of the school building.  An opinion was expressed that  nothing will be done about that  corner until the Gibsons bypass  road is constructed.  Sechelt News  (By  MARIE   FIRTH)  Canon Alan Greene of Redrooffs, on holiday in London, is  ever on the alert for funds to  assist the Sunshine Coast Senior  Citizens' Housing association.

On Saturday, March 23 Mrs. Michie  will be holding a reception at  the Gallery from 2 to 4 p.m. to  renew old acquaintances and  make new. friends.    . .  .,'  (Continued from Page 1)  scheduled' so that 'both can be  taken.  This brief is being prepared  for the followi-ig reasons:  1. To remind the school  board, superintendent of schools  special counsellors, teachers  and parents that the school exists for the express purpose of  providing the ^very best education obtainable.  2. To assist by pointing out  deficiencies.  3. To help correct these by  making suggestions.  4. To remind the school  board that the current emphasis in this district on building,  landscaping a_id administration  has increased costs substantially without improving the scholastic standard.  We will divide the brief to  deal with these problems at the  following levels.  1. Kindergarten.  2. Eementary  3. Secondary  4. Counselling and career  opportunity education.  Please bear in mind that the  purpose of the brief is to develop co-operation between parents, school board (our representatives), superinten de nts,  counsellors, principals an d  teachers to provide the i best  education for our children.  KINDERGARTEN  In our opinion the purpose of  kindergarten is to prepare the  child for a full day at school,  m other words, a halfway house  between the home and school.  This can be very effective if  the purpose is always kept in  mind, otherwise it can be a  waste of time and money. A  child's time is important and  valuable, and in the school system all important.  Great educators believe the  best years of learning are the  ages of 4 to 10, it is a well  known fact that problems are  created at this age. Constant  blaming of parents for children's faults is not always justified. Many of these problem's  are the direct result ���of poor  schools. ;V    -      .'.  To create the desire to learn,  to generate the enthusiasm to  learn should be the most important purpose of a good kindergarten.  A good- teacher and certainly  a   principal   or   superintendent  should be able to assess a kindergarten for these qualities.  Recommendation  We ask greater co-operation  with the school board office on  matters of transportation. With  the very adequate staff in exis-  ence every effort should be  made to arrange schedules and  compile lists of children riding  buses and available space for  kindergarten children.  It was felt the money would  be better spent providing more  transportation and less expensive toys, the emphasis being  put on handcrafts, books and  things to do rather than playthings. This is better training  for future school days.  ELEMENTARY  One of the most constant concerns of parents is the child's  progress in reading, writing and  arithmetic. There is a tendency  in our schools to regard any attempt of the parent to assist the  child as arrant interference. As  a result we end up paying for  remedial teachers and also  give the slow learner an ever  increasing problem with each  passing year. Under present  system parents are completely  discouraged when they are unable to get a satisfactory answer.  Not many years ago ..many  children ended their formal  education at the Grade 8 level.  ��n\\raiuHmum\imraiwm����iiiumuniimraraHuufflnuum��)  TWO HOUR SHOW  Quentin Durgens, MP is embroiled in the conflicts and power struggles of a federal party  Leadership Convention in a  Quentin Durgens special: The  Road to Chaldaea, a two-hour  dramatic production in color, to  be seen oh the CBC television  network, Wednesday, March 27  at 9:30 p.m. pre-empting Festival.  uimunHnwnniMiminnmnnm>.muiuiinmHHiHirouinm..j  This is no longer true, most  children now reach the secondary level.  Elementary school must prepare them for further learning  at a higher level, both by teaching skills, reading, writing and  arithmetic, general knowledge  of history and geography, plus  science, music and art.  It also must nourish a desire  to learn and impress on the pupil the need to learn in order to  fulfill themseves not just to  earn a nice comfortable living.  Teachers, principals, etc may  only be concerned1 with a particular child for one year, the  parent must try to guide and  help the child- to become a mature and independent adult. The  parent has the responsibility of  guiding the child's talents and  abilities so that the child will be  prepared for adult responsibilities in an increasingly complex  world. Lack of proper preparation in the elementary grades  creates problems in the secondary school.  It is the parents' hope that  educators and school board are  keeping up with latest teaching  techniques. For example: team  teaching, elimination of grade  system, etc. These things were  all discussed during the educational conference sponsored by  the school board over a year  ago.  Parents wish a further report  on these efforts and also further  discussion on new methods of  teaching, etc., such at I.T.A.  reading and the effects of transferring to regular reading. and  writing.  REPORT CARDS  This section applies to both  elementary a n d secondary  schools.  The original reason for sending a report card home to the  parent was to keep the parent  informed of the child's progress  in various skills, etc. The present report card and system of  evaluating a . child's progress  makes it necessary for a parent  to have many interviews with  various teachers. These interviews are time consuming for  both teacher and parent and accomplish little. Interview should  be necessary only by teacher or  parent request. Parents, however, did on the whole, like the  open house rather than the evening procedure as conducted at  the High School.  We would, prefer percentages .  as well as letter grades. Children would be more encouraged  at the slight rise in marks that  are unnoticeable when letters  are used. More tests should ibe  sent for the parents to see results and assess the child's progress.  SECONDARY SCHOOL  A student should try to develop a career goal because he  will find it easier to work up to  his potential and avoid the crisis of overnight decision making.  Even an unrealistic goal is  better than none. An unrealistic goal could be modified and  channelled in more practical directions while still serving to  motivate the student.  The high school boy or girl  who lacks a goal���even though  he or she may have high potential���may not be driven sufficiently to work to capacity.  It does not seem to be general knowledge in this district  that requirements for vocation  and technical school are high.  It is most difficult to enter these  fields because many adults are  also using facilities to up-grade  their skills. There is a suggestion of lowering standards but  this is already proving a dangerous deception.  More stress should be put on  academic subjects. Students  should be encouraged to try a  course that may be .more challenging. All apprenticeships and  technical courses require academic math and some chemistry, etc. These are the fields of  the future. A computer's usefulness is in direct ratio to the  skill of the programmer.  We presume curriculum's are  set down by the department of  education.  What assurance do we have  that the course is being thoroughly covered by our school?  Is this the responsibility of the  principal or the superintendent  of schools for this district? Who  hires our teachers?  Chemistry and Biology labs  are non-existent at our high  school. Teachers are required  to wheel supplies in and out of  a room. This is a waste of high  priced talent and energy.  However, we have very modern cooking and sewing facilities. Cooking is an elective and  is not recognized as a credit  even if the student is interested  in a further course in home economics. Chemistry, biology and  physics are required. Could we  not convert the cooking lab into a chemistry and biology lab?  Much is spent by the school  board on Public Relations. It is  our suggestion that this could  be better used to continually inform parents and students of  requirements for entrance to vocational, teachnical and univer  sity courses. Special assistak<;e  evening classes would allow students to obtain instruction in  subjects not included in their  school program.  SPECIAL PROGRAMS  Music:  Parents on the whole are interested in a music program  within  our school.  Training should begin in kindergarten with singing, also  beating time, etc. Elementary  teachers,are supposed to be able  to teach elementary music appreciation, singing, use of recorder, etc. Most small schools  have at least one teacher able  to alternate classes to accomplish this.  We also have one music teacher and one music supervisor. A  bulletin recently, handed out  gives a complete program for  Mr. Williams. May we have a  similar schedule so that parents  may know the supervisor's  schedule?  Music at High (School:  - Students are faced with a  choice of music or one of their  regular classes. Schedules  should be arranged so that students can choose music as an  elective.  TEACHER EVALUATION  From the parent's standpomt  the only measure of a good  teacher is the results obtained.  We Have to be certain that  courses are being properly presented and the required course  material completed during the  year.  COUNSELLING  Professor Hardwick, at the  Educational Conference recommended more use of local talent  We also recommend the school  board make better use of well  educated and informed local residents, arranging talks to students, etc by union officials, superintendents from local industry, local doctors, nurses and  business men to explain requirements for careers or employment in these fields.  Some counselling at the secondary level is extremely poor;  no counselling at all is better  than poor counselling.  SUGGESTIONS  1. Transportation be provided for all kindergarten classes.  2. Team teaching and eliminating of Grade systems ibe  considered and results be reported to parents.  3. Advise parents of the  I.T.A. method of reading and of  its results and value.  4. Send home report cards  with the 'percentage marks  along with the lettered grades.  5. More stress and adequate  grounding be given in the academic math, chemistry, physics  and biology courses.  6. Every effort be made immediately to supply a /chemistry, physics laboratory with ade-  quate equipment and supplies.  Temporary quarters would be  sufficient at first.  7. Assurance be given that  expensive equipment already  purchased is used to its full capacity.  8. A greater effort beginning  at the Grade 8 level to encour*  age interest in all subjects especially science and math.  9. We request that the school  board call a public meeting and  include the school board, supervisors, principals and superintendent to discuss these suggestions and initiate imanediate action. Watch out for ticks  6   Coast News, March 21, 1968.  As spring approaches in British Columbia, P. R. Wilkinson  of the Canada Department of  Agriculture research station  warns livestock owners of the  danger of the Rocky Mountain  wood tick. This species can  cause paralysis particularly  among    yearling    cattle    and  sheep.  The Rocky Mountain variety  of wood tick is common throughout the grasslands of the province and forest clearings south  of 53 degrees latitude usually  where there is an abundance of  small rodents on which it can  feed-in early stages.  Rocky southern exposures,  moist    enough    to   support   a  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  Tuesdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Thursdays 11 a.m. to 7 p._n.

Sechelt, B.C.  Ph. 885 9551  growth of broadleafed shrubs  are usually ideal habitats and  the danger lasts from March to  May.  In British Columbia, where  this tick usually seeks the upper  part of animals, Mr. Wilkinson  suggests cattle be protected  with 12 percent BIHC wettable  powder, four pounds in each 19  gallons of water. Before turning the cattle onto an infested  range, spray two quarts of the  mixture on each' animal along  the shoulder, neck and top of  head. This treatment will give  them protection for the season.  Young calves should not be  treated and animals that have  been sprayed should not be  slaughtered for meat during the  five weeks after application of  the mixture.  Sheep should be sprayed with  a milder solution ��� three  pounds of 12 percent BHC in 80  gallons of water or alternatively with 12 pounds of toxaphene  40 percent wettable powder per  100 gallons of water. The mixture should be well stirred during spraying.  In some areas rodent reduction, or avoidance of tick infested pastures for spring grazing, may be a useful means of  reducing the danger of paralysis  of livestock, especially if only  a small area of the property is  tick infested.  The pubic is asked to forward  ticks for identification to the  Research Station, CDA, Kamloops (P.O. Box 210) giving details of date and place found, if  they were attached to animals  and any harmful effects noted.  Bill 33  (Continued from Page 3)  Peterson urges why not remove  the unnecessary delays and expense of calling a special session? The next step will be to  say: Why not eliminate the unnecessary delay and expense of  calling the Legislature to approve any legislation? and Why  delay punishing the guilty party  by a long, drawn-out trial in  the courts? We say that the  preservation of rights and  liberties is always worth delay  and expense and is certainly  worth the delay and expense of  calling the Legislature into session. .'...���  A final example of deceit is  the minister's repeated use of  unsupported and inaccurate  statements. He states that no  one in this province would want  to sacrifice the judicial procedures ... But Section 38 of  the Bill does just that when it  provides that the actions of the  commission, under the direction of the government are beyond the jurisdiction of the  courts.  There are many more examples. It is clear that the  minister, in his efforts to mist  lead the public and in his willingness to twist the truth, has  seriously impaired his usefulness as a Minister of the Crown.

Clearing job  The Sechelt district British  Columbia Hydro and Power  Authority office is reclearing  specific designated transmission  line right-of-ways of all tree  stumps and debris on an experimental basis. The experiement-  __Y work is being carried out  on a trial basis and is intended  to find out actual right-of-way  maintenance costs as against  other methods applied in the  past. The clearing work is being contracted with local equipment and the areas involved  are east and west of the Porpoise Bay Road.  It is hoped that by applying  this method in suitable areas,  not only will it improve the  right-of-way, but will beautify  its appearance and, also, will  keep future maintenance costs  to a minimum.

The predominantly brown  stamp, horizontal in format,  introduces another newcomer  in the field of Canadian stamp  design. The design was executed by Hungarian born, Canadian  by   adoption,   Prof.   Imre  von Mosdossy of Agincourt,  Ontario. Prof, von Mosdossy  has to his credit hundreds of  stamps chosen for use by postal  administrations in' many parts  of the world.  Photogravure in three, colors  and steel engraving in one  color have been utilized by the  British American Bank Note  Co., Ottawa, to print 24 million  of the new issue.

Peterson asks opinions  on greater school use  A committee set up to study  possible methods of obtaining  greater use of public school  facilities invites opinions from  interested organizations and individuals, it was announced by  the Hon. L. R. Peterson, minister of education.  The committee, under the  chairmanship of J. L. Canty,  the department of education's  co-ordinator of services, has  been invited to study and report to the minister on the extent to which school facilities  are utilized under the present  organization. It will investigate  alternative overall organizational patterns    including    quarter  Book review  ^George F. Kennan, Memoirs  1925 - 1950. Published by Little,  Brown and Co. Gibsons Public  Library. Reviewed by J- A.  Mainil.  It is with some humility that  I will say a few words about  the above book. It has been reviewed in every major publication of the English speaking  world. It has been discussed and  quoted from in the French, Italian, German and Russian press.  It is probably one of the more  important books published in  the last decade. Be that as it  may, if we are going to read it  in Giibsons we might as well review it and try to judge it in  Gibsons.  This is the story of 25 years  of important diplomatic work  by a brilliant and honest man.  The entire period was devoted,  more or less directly, to the  studying of East-West relations,  and in advising the American  government on matters concerning Soviet Russia particularly,  and Eastern Europe generally.  He had some successes and  many failures; his failures,  namely to influence or persuade  his government, are probably  the most revealing portions of  these memoirs.  He loved the Russian people,  distrusted the Soviet, and disliked Communism, but these  emotions were always expressed  humanely, objectively and with  realism.  This is not escapist.literature,  it requires quiet, reflective reading. It repays the reader by giving him a greatly increased  knowledge of our giant neighbor to the south. Although written about a period 15 years past  in some indefinable way, it  makes more understandable the  bloody, brutal and seemingly  endless road to Viet Nam. It  scared me. I commend the book  to you.  MONEY FOR HOSPITAL  National Health and Welfare  Minister Allan J. MacEachen  announces approval of a $129,-  381 federal construction grant  to the Prince George Regional  Hospital, Prince George, British Columbia. The grant is being made under the terms of  the Hospital Construction Grant  rules.  and semester systems, and alternative organization of the  school day to get greater utilization of facilities.  The minister said that written briefs will be invited from  the British Columbia School  Trustees association and Teachers' federation, Parent-Teacher  federation, Chamber of Commerce, Federation of labor, the  Union of British Columbia Municipalities, and their component  members. Submissions from  any other organizations and individuals will be welcome.    -  To simplify the work for the  committee, which consists of  four working people acting  voluntarily, submissions must  be summarized on a special  form being prepared for the  purpose. The form, and a copy  of the committee's terms of  reference may be obtained by  writing to Mr. Canty at the  department of education, Parliament Buildings, Victoria.  Other members of the com--  mittee are Charles W. Dick of  Vancouver, nominee of the  Teachers' Federation; Peter  Powell of North Vancouver,  nominee of the Trustees association, and Mrs. Frances  Thompson of Victoria, nominee  of the Parent-Teacher federation.  Mr. Peterson said that when  he spoke of increased usage he  referred not only to classrooms,  but libraries, gymnasiums and  equipment, which could be used  on an around-the-clock, or even  an around-the-calendar basis.  School plants are too costly to  be left vacant for much of the  day and night and for one-sixth  of the year, he said. The traditional practice of having holidays only in July and August  needs   examination.  Coast News, March 21, 1968.    7  Co-operatives  history ready  Unable to use his arms or  .legs, a former fisherman has  just published a history of cooperatives in B.C.'s fishing fleet  A. V. (Vic) Hill, troller and educational worker, has. been in  a wheelchair, totally disabled,  for ten years. He dictated the  279-page book to his wife and  daughter. '  Hill's book, Tides of Change,  records the fun and struggle of  those fishermen who started coops and credit unions at different points on the coast. He was  an eye-witness to many of the  events. Memories of other old-  timers and written records added the rest of his facts.  The lively story of fishermen's  co-ops reaches back to 1929,  when the first one was formed  at Sointula. Slowly, over the  years, a multi-million dollar coop complex was built, centred  in Prince Rupert. At the same  time, fishermen's credit unions  have grown strong. Now, co-operation is a part of many fishermen's daily life.  Before retiring in 1958, Hill  was actve in fishermen's unions,  coops, credit union's and education. He was secretary of the  Pacific Coast Fishermen's Union from-1937 to 1941. In 1947 he  took the post of director of mem  ber relations for the Fishermen's C-operative Federation.  Six years later he changed over  to the extension department of  the University of B.C. as supervisor of fisheries ��� services. He  travelled the coast working with  fishermen. Tides of Change was  published as . a centennial project by Prince Rupert Fishermen's Co-operative Association.

Refreshments were served by  Mrs. Ron McSavaney.  Reading approach  method outlined  On Friday, March 1, teachers  of School District 46 attended a  conference on individualized  reading instruction, held by  their association at Gibsons Elementary school.| The key address was delivered iby Dr. Robert A. McCracken, director of  the reading centre, Western  Washington  State  College.  Dr. McCracken emphasized  the individualized approach in  the teaching of reading and  stressed the idea that no two  children are the same, in any  area. He made the point there is  a very good reason for doing  away with letter grading. Who  gets the E's? The child who is  the poorest reader. He may  work hard and increase his  reading ability but will still  maintain his relative position in  the class all year long. Reading  reflects developmental growth  and it is the teacher's job to  keep people growing. A child  should not be forced to read  something he cannot handle.  This is just like making him  wear a certain sized shoe because the norm for his age is a  specific size, he said.  Individualized reading instruc  tion is a good way of trying to  meet the problem. Even though  the child has to cope with a  teacher who is trying his or her  best to deal with a classroom  full of individuals he finds he  can succeed. He is not frustrated because the material he is  practicing with and the individual and group instruction given are at his level. The teacher  serves as a guide. Learning will  take place as long as he can  keep the child moving, reading  regularly.  BONNET -FOUND  A child's white bonnet with  colored pompoms on the side  has been picked up in the Co-op  store. Ask at the check out  stand.
