From what the Coast News has *  learned few objections have  been submitted.  The next move by council will  occur at its meeting Monday  n'ght of next week when a resolution will be sent to the minister of municipal affairs, Hon.  Dan Campbell,t requesting that  official cognizance- of .council's  petition for expansion be made.  The area of expansion to ibe  considered takes, in the south  side of Reid road behind Granthams westward to include both  sides of Park road then jogging,  its way. easterly down to the*  Strait'of Georgia.

Although the referenda have  been passed, each school district  will still have to go through a  number of stages- before the  schools can be built. Sketch  plans will have to be approved  by the Department  of Educa  as a dear mandate to' proceed ? * tion. After this has been done,  as soon as possible with approvals of badly needed,,facilities  and 'that there will be~no further delays in getting construction underway.  With this level of support from  the people of the province there  the architect can proceed with  working drawings. The Department of Education then has to  give permission to call tenders  and also has to approve the contractor before the contract is  let.

'   '  Greeting from premier  Premier Bennett's Christmas  Message:  For British Columbians, 1968  has been a year of progress; a  year whose accomplishments  give us ample reason for confidence in our future prospects  here at home.  But we are also citizens of the  world, who therefore must look  beyond our own borders to measure man's progress. And during the':tragic year now ending,  we have seen our neighbors the  world over suffer violence and  conflict.  While this is conflict not of  our own making, we cannot turn  away from.their suffering.. The  spirit of good will towards meh  which is the injunction of Christmas enjoins Us to pray for them  as for ourselves, that 1969 will  see a lasting return to peace on  eartb. .,'   : :,..'-  :���,    rY-'���;���/.  In  this  spirit,  and with, this  prayer in mind, I send, you-.best-,  wishes for, a happy Christmas  and   a   truly   successful   New  Year. -  Help for disturbed  Girls plan  carol tour  On Dec. 20 and 21, eight girls  ranging in age from 12 to 14  years, will be caroling in homes  and businesses of Gibsons to  raise money for the aid of needy  nad hungry people throughout  the world. All donations will be  turned over to the Red Cross.  The girls are Wendy Allnutt,  Kathy Potter, Janet Strom,  Theresa Lafbonte, Betty Topham  Lita Allnutt, Kathy Fisher and  Jennifer  Cooper.  The girls conceived this project in "order to share with others  and capture some of the real  spirit of Christmas.  The 2nd Group of Gibsons  Girl Guides will be out caroling  on Friday night from about 6:30  to 8:30 in the shopping areas.  Responding to a request from  a trustees' co-i_mittee on special  education, the Educational Research Institute of B.C; has awarded a grant of $6,000 for a research study of present educational provisions, for emotionally disturbed children in the  schools of British Columbia, together with recommendations  for a more adequate program.  Sechelt School district is taking  part in this program, R. R. Hanna, district superintendent, announces.  This study^ will be directed by  Dr. S. R. Laycock, former dean  of education ^at the University  of Saskatchewan and former visiting 'professor of education at  the University of B.C. Dr. Lay-  cock, who is a recognized national authority in the field of  special education, will be assisted in'the: study by James A.  Findlay, supervisor of pupil personnel in Burnaby school dis-.  trict.  The  study is  limited to  what the school can do for those  emotionally   disturbed   children  who can remain in school if special help and facilities are provided for them. It will not deal  with seriously emotionally disturbed -children who need treatment in a special, residential facility. ���������,;;   "  -������ V.'. .'���  y   .-���  The Canadian Mental  Health  association estimates that five  to 10 percent of children are  sufficiently disturibed to require  extra help. These are youngsters  whose inability to learn cannot  be explained by 'intellectual,  sensory or health factors, and  those who show persistent evidence of anxiety, fears and un-  happiness or despondence, agY  gressive of hyper-active behavior. These children frequently  have physical complaints without apparent cause and they usually have difficulty in getting  along with other children. Such  youngsters may disrupt the  work of the classroom, place undue strain on the teacher, and  further their own maladjustment  Adequate provision for the education of these emotionally disturbed children, who, with special help and services can be  taught in the school, should de-  . crease the number who otherwise would require special residential care and treatment.  i\uii>iuiiiuniu)iHiir.mniiniuu\��>uuw>fflniQwnnmmyin\ni)tB  JOHN NOW 93  John McDonald, Seaview Rd.,  one of Gibsons hardy pioneers,  celebrated, his 93rd birthday  quietly, Tuesday.  num  ' (Picture above, shows Danny  Wheeler and Jojhn Harvey flank?

Time and enough has passed for all men to have been affected toy His words.  His subjects were Faith," Hope and Charity, His discipline was  Love, and His passing mark, Compassion.  Take the,time to read the condensation of the lessons He gave  us in the Gospel according to St..Matthew, Chapter 5, with particular attention to paragraphs 3 to. 10: "  '   ''Blessed-are the poor in spirit; for their's is the kingdom of heaven.  . Y.---.Y'  '^Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall toe comforted.       Y . .-;���  "Blessed are the meesk: for they shall inherit the earth.  "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after  righteousness:'for they shall be filled.  "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called  the -children of God.  "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for their's is the kingdom of heaven."  Abiding by thse simple rules how easy it. should have been for  man to be. truly just and good. Accepting them' today might start us  along a worthier path.  A Happy Christmas to all.  7 JULES A. MAINIL  Y  A| changing world?  -With all the talk of a changing world one is left pondering on  the stability of the young mind when it comes to defining Christmas  Tlie really young fry, regardless of the tempo shown toy their elders  towaids change, are unable to comprehend such a need when Santa  Claus takes over. Would they, if able to communicate verbally with  their elders, just ask the simple question, why?  Perhaps more of the spirit of Christmas would help the world  along it. tortuous path as the end of 1968 draws near. Who would  deny the happiness, of expectancy by a youngster; impatient because his elders want to sleep, at five a an. Christmas morning?  St. Nick may not be a prime subject for those Who seek the  downfall of what they call the establishment, but who would want  to tumble into the maelstrom of today's disputes, the celebration of  the birth of a child whose mature life did so much to bring order  out of chaos? *  Stripped of its overburdened trappings, Christmas remains a  challenge ��� a challenge to consider what the birth of One child  meant to the world. Even as a child He was subject to discrimination. Herod ordered the massacre of the innocents. We are now  able to celebrate Christmas because the massacre wais incomplete.  One hopes the changing world will have a rest this Christmas-  tide ��� a well deserved one.

MAINIL)  Mother and Dad had been  farming for some six years, i,The  farm, already modestly successful, consisted of the hopiestead  and a half section purchased  once the homestead hadp.be^n  proven up. It had a good complement of horses' ��� enough' for  two outfits ��� a dozen'head of *  cattle, a few pigs, chic-cens.and  this year for the first'tlnie^-ten  white turkeys of which Mother  was very proud. For the7fj.Tst  time there would be a realf.Caft-  adian Christmas dinner in rthe  Mainil home, a turkey. Not cfan  berry sauce yet, tout a-turkey��.J-  I suppose we were a typical  immigrant family, very EurS|  pean and, in our case, still very  Belgian, tout at the same timje  we loved Canada and were anxY  ious to partake of alii its was^s .  and customs. The household was  made up of Mother, Dad, my  maternal grandlmotlner whorh  we called Marraine, my baby  , brother., Hector, myself, the  eldest now aibout five of si|_  years old, andi the hired man  Jimmy McKean. He was the 2j):  year- old son '. ofs neighboring  Scotch immigrants' who were  only slightly greener than we  .were. ' .^  *:      *   Y*-' - 7,Y  It was a beautiful cold early  Decemiber day, the snow roads-  were good and Motherland Dad  were going to town, as the' small  village of Forget about14 miles 7  away was usually referred to. 7  Probablythe main  reason for.77  the 7trip /wasto buy  oranges, Y  nuts,   candies   and  ayiew  toys Y  for tlie beloved sons, and a cou>;7  pie of bottles of spirits for the Y  grownups to serve to the good-  neighbors who would be inifor-Y  mally calling oyer the holiday^  season.

Jimmy brought in the .beautifully plucked turkey. Marraine  who had dressed numberless  chickens in her day, thought to  herself, "Why it is only a big  chicken," and went to it.-  She dressed the big bird, set  the giblets aside, and stuffed  it. So preoccupied had she been  that she was unaware that Jimmy had silently been watching  her. She looked up and a huge  simile creased his faoe. Happily  she smiled1'back; what a team  they made.  It was now about one o'clock.  .Marraine shook the range, tried'  the oven with her hand, popped  in the turkey now comfortably  "resting in a big, bread pan, and  closed the oven" door. Jimmy  went back to work;.  accepted all this, and ,ourselves  for that matter, pretty well as  His in any case.  Oh I know that that turkey,  that stuffing, that bread soaked  in the gravy, could not possibly  have been as good as I remember it, but it was good, good  enough that after almost. 60  years I can still taste it. We ate  in silence, ate until the baby  belchced, ate until the eldest  son still looked, but could no  longer eat, ate until all were replete in that peaceful, warm  farm kitchen.  The usually wordless Jimmy  was the first to break the silence. "Boss," he said, "I'm nae  so mad at the horse now as I  was a few hours ago." Marraine  may riot have known English  but she could grasp even an implied compliment with the best  of them. She made a polite little  bow to her cohfederate.-  Jimmy's words brought a roar  of laughter from Dad.. 'We came  to Canada determined to be  good Canadians; in JFact we are  going to be such good Canadians that we will even have eaten a practice turkey before we  eat a real Christm'as one."  Kindnss and good1 humour sat  with us. 7_  *  *      *  Things returned -more or. less  to  normal.  Marraine kept hex  stove  at a  medium heat  and  watched the turkey cook.  She  was proud of. what she had done "  but also  a little  worried.   She  knew that Dad would enjoy the  whole episode and eat the turkey with relish. With Mother it  was somewhat different ��� she  had raised the turkeys with a  great deal of trouble, she had  set her heart on having the best  of  these turkeys   for  the  first  truly Canadian  Christmas  dinner. It had overtones that went  beyond the flesh and bones of  the bird. Oh well, what was done  was done.  '������'   YY-v.7.,...',;.YYY-,7.  From six o-clocl_ on she started going to the kitchen -door to  listen for the harness chimes. In  the clear quiet winter evening  you  could, hear  and ;recognize  them from two of .j threeYmiles  away. Shortly before seven she  heard them coming.

Richard McKibbin  Gibsons  'ling dawn.  *  Marraine was now in complete  charge. She was the mistress of  the establishment, also the baby  sitter, the general factotum, and  the preparer of huge meals for  the ever hungry hired man, the  silent, gentle Jimmy. Y  '  All was going well���dinner,  as the noon meal was called,  was over ��� the boysY reasonably co-operative, had been fed,  and bedded down for the mid-*  day nap. Jimmy, well filled, had  gone back to his chores and  Marraine, happy in her responsibilities, had settled in the rocker next to the kitchen range and  started knitting.  Now tragedy struck and a crisis was at hand. Jimmy, with a  doleful and baffled look on his  face, walked into the kitchen  with Mother's biggest turkey in  his armls. A horse had stepped  on it and broken its leg just below the knee. Now you must understand that Jimmy did not  know one word of French and  Marraine did not know one word  of English, however what they  lacked in langiiage they made  up for in common sense. By  gesture and much useless  French and English they reached their decision and made their  plans. ;  *    '#'    *  Jimmy took the turkey to the  chopping block, out off its head  and plucked it. Marraine iri the  meantime had to decide how to  deal with it. First of all it had  to be stuffed but with what ahd  how. As a good Belgian cook  she knew about srtt-Cfing veaX,  pork and fish, but this was different and it had to toe right.. It  was a serious experiment in  Canadianism. She had brought  in a frozen roast of pork from  the porch which she had been  going to use for supper. She cut  a generous piece of this,and' put  it through the meat grinder,  mashed a few cold potatoes and  crumbled slices of homemade  bread and threw everything into  the mixing bowl. She broke an  egg over the mixture, added  chopped onions, salt and pepper  and the herbs she used so well,  CURRENT NEWS  ABOUT LEG CRAMPS  Intermittent claudication is a painful cramp  in the leg. It generally occurs in the calf muscle  or thtgh while' walking. Its usual cause is insufficient blood supply due to hardening of the  arteries. During hot, humid weather a great loss  of salt may be a cause.  It is presently impossible to cure hardened  arteries. But you can walk slower, take certain  leg exercises and your Doctor can prescribe  medicines which dilate the blood vessels. Some-:  times, if, there is an obstruction at some point  in the large arteries, you may'need surgical  help.  Your doctor can phone us when youv> need a  medicine.

Brothers,  Minister of Education,  Parliament Buildings,  500 Belleville,     -  Victoria,'- B.C. '  Dear .Sir:  It has come to my attention  that a book called The N:gger.,  written by a Mr. Dick Gregory,  is in the library of the Elementary School in Gibsons, B.C. I  am told there are other similar  books in the same school and  in the high school in Gibsons.  This'book (The Nigger) has language which has absolutely no  place in our ' school libraries.  For example, such words that  , are commonly known as four letter words appear.   .  ���I know that there are some  so-called liberal thinkers today,  who say that this is the way it  is, so why change it.-Such thinking displays their extreme ignorance. Just because our air  is polluted ��� with poisons and  harmful substances, this does  not mean that we deliberately  put the same into the food that  our children eat. When books of  this type appear in our school  libraries, it has the appearance  of condoning, such language, yet  if our children were to use these  words; they would be severely  reprimanded.for it by the same  people who appear to condone  it. '  Board explains  new bus policy  The School board policy for  kindergarten transportation has  ibeen .expanded to allow such  children to use school buses provided there is room for them.  Here is the addition to the present- policy:  There is no obligation on the  part'of the board to use public  funds for transportation ofTkin--  dergarten pupils.' Rule 17:08 of  the Council of Public Instruction  approves transportation grants  with respect only to pupils enrolled in Grades 1 to 13.  The board agrees to amend  existing policy and permit kindergarten pupils to ride school  buses haiving vacant seats pro  vided that:  Pupils enrolled in grades 1 to  12 are not displaced, f  No bus carries more than its  legal limit of bodies.  Bus routesand whedirte_Yirill  not be expected to,change in order to accommodate idndergar-  ten pupils.      YY:- -iY-YYYY 7--:  No kindergarten pup-l;;wiU be  permitted to ridewholives within 2&_! miles of the school (Regulation 17:08 re Grades 1-3.)  It is understood that this privilege can not ibe made available to every kindergarten pupil in the district and the board  will not have to arbitrate where  a dispute may arise among parents because there may hot be  room on the bus for all kindergarten pupils in any particular  area.  FIRST ANNIVERSARY   Y  The December 4 meeting of.  the Sechelt Auxiliary to the  Brownie�� and Guides took the  form of a Christmas dinner par-,  ty at the home of Mrs. Charlotte  Jackson with, leaders and- members of the Pender Harbour Auxiliary as guests. It was pointed  out that this was Pender Harbour's first anniversary.  ���, Mrs. In'grid Underhill and Mrs  Pat .Nestman: were enrolled as  members of: the local Girl Guide  association .by vMrs. Harriet  Newton: The next meeting will  be at the home of Mrs. Mary  Flay on Jan. 8.

Ph. 886-2838  I understand that this book is  not on the regular list of books  recommended by the school  board. It is with these thoughts  in mind that I would appeal to  you, as our minister of education, to exercise your authority  to protect our children from this  kind of foolishness and hypocrisy, which would endeavour,  to spoil our educational institutions which we are normally  proud of.  ���D. A. McElhoes.  Editor: The Board of School  Trustees wishes to thank you  for the interest and co-operation  we have received from your  newspaper in publicizing Refer-^  endum No. 9.  We realize that the shortness  of time created some difficulty  for all concerned, and without  your assistance it would not  have been possible to publicize  the Referendum in time for the  Dec. 7 vote.  We look forward to your-continued co-operation in helping  us to keep the-public informed  on local educational matters.  ���Agnes Labonte, public relations committee.  AND NOW NUTMEG!  If sales of nutmeg in a western grocery chain suddenly  start to climb, the company  says it will do "the only decent  thing" ��� pull it off the grocery  shelves. The reason? According  to Canadian Grocer, a recent report or rumor claimed nutmeg  was capable of producing hallucinogenic effects, like LSD or  a'rplane glue. Sales of nutmeg  soared sky-high in five stores  of one^ grocery chain in Edmonton recently. Company officials  removed it from store shelves,  deckling to dispense it only at  hceck-out counters. An official  of the same chain in Calgary is  prepared to do the same thing; '������[:'��������� ��� ,���--.���''-' ���  "we've got to find out what this  is all about," he says.

These were under the initials  A. J. C, and it was clear that  the writer knew what he was  writing about from the grass  roots up.  In those days we got here by  steamer, and the officers and  crew of the Union Steamships  were a widely travelled and  knowledgeable set of men, and  these articles were the subject  of deep discussion in the smoking room and freight deck, the  mariners having a dream' of  some day swallowing the anchor  and of going farming, while Dan  and I were already on the  ground and larding the.<lean  earth with our toil. None of us  then knew that the polished  author had' had a remarkable  life in sail around the world before he was 21.  What lay back of Gibsons  Landing was a terra incognita  to the lot of us, and I don't  think that those articles led to  any sales' ashore, other than  that one deckhand bought a waterfront lot about where Gibsons  shipyard is now,, for all of $700  and wondered if he would ever  get his money back. - They' did  stimiulate enquiry as to where  this farm lay, and when it became known on shipboard-that  the lonely clearing on the* skyline was the place that was written about, we kept an eye on it -  as the seasons passed. I recall  that A. J. C. concluded the- series with the simple" deduction  from his experience, that no one  could make a living from the  land alone in this district, but  there had to be some money for  store goods acquired by work  for wages.  The years passed. Dan McGregor retired to North Vancouver, I retired from that city to  here, and the Union Steamships  retired from West Howe_Sound_  altogether, just under !J0years'  ago, but A. J. C. came to life  again with his furred and feathered friends, this time in the  Coast News. To my regret, I  never shad speech with him, but  fromi time to time we passed on  our'lawful occasions' in Gibsons.  He raised' his 'eyebmw ��� over a  twinkling- eye to' me, and I returned the compliment. Words  were unnecessary, and now are  unavailing, other-fthtan' to express the sympathy of his wide  circle of friends and readers  with his family and kin in their  bereavement. >  Back' in October, 1959, when  John Husby died, Mr. Charman  wrote under the heading Vale!  John, we follow you, the following eulogy to a friend:,  , To a small and dwindling  group of old men, the passing of  John Husby will have special  significance1.  We are men of an era that  was waning even in our early  days at sea, though' many hundreds of taE ships "> were still  carrying the commerce of Great  Britain arid Europe over the Seven Seas. We heard the red gods  call in the challenge of tornadoes, " squalls that screamed  through the .'gallant rigging  and among ourselves we speak  a language unknown today ���  the language of sailing ships.  The '.'square-rigged tickets",  the certificates ' of competency  for which we worked so long  and hard, arid, which gave us  authority to take charge of a  watch on a'Jhiljr, at sea, are no  longer issued'ai-d are museum  pieces even as we are ourselves  as we await the call to the last  payoff.  The incidents, on the long life  of a man of John Husby's calling would be _-vai_y~.and varied.  I well recall his telling me  that as' a lad he had served on  a biological expedition that was  studying marine life off the  coast' of Norway.- Dr. Fridjof  Nansen.was a member of that  expedition ��� /.and-it was no  mean memory rto * have been  afloat withf Nansed aboard.  Later on{^John' was mate of a  schooner^tbat.brought a load of  gold-seekers .from Europe and  through the.Magellan Strait on  their way to' the Klondike diggings.

PAUL  ST.PJERRE, MP  For lo these many- days, beginning in the early afternoon  and1 ending at 1*0 p.m., the commons has ibeen passing esti  mates. In simpler terms',' the  memlbers of Parliament have  Ibeen approving the government  plans to spend! tax dollars.  This is one of parliament's  most cherished rights.  Governments were originally  appointed by kings. They are  now appointed fey some mysterious process, involving what is  called The Popular Will, God,  The Great Two-Tailed Toad or  some other invisible force.  Whatever the process; the  government is not parliament.  The government may legislate  ibut it receives money only when  parliament votes it. Therefore,  parliament's scrutiny of government's proposed spendings is,  supposedly, the right which  makes parliament supreme to  all other forces of the nation,  (except that of the general citizenry, who retain the right to  vote out MPs at elections and if  necessary, string them up to  lamp-posts if elections 'are unduly delayed.)  How well, then, does parliamentary-.control of government  spending, operate? .  How thorough is this scrutiny?  In the present consideration of  the estimates, it seems rather  less than impressive. For one  thing, most of the money has  already been spent. There have  (been what are called' interim  supply votes during the recent  months of election and confusion. As a result we are, in the  month of Novemlber, voting on  departmeritalJ estimates which  began being spent last March  and which will cease next March  Is this the only dleficiency of  the process?  7 By no means.  Let us Jiear the testimony of  a senior parliamentarian, Mr.  Baldwin, Conservative memiber  for Peace River, Alberta:  Mr. Chairman, I have a few J  olfcervationsL I  should like yto Y  make,, during our consideration   "  o-*thas'item'm:fhe estimates.- ',��%<*���  "When we are in the commits >;.'\  tee of supply I sometimes have Hj  the feeling ( that dealing with  these estimates is like an ancient tribal ritual greeting spring.  It has no real meaning as an  examination of the estimates.  "I only hope that the new  structure or procedure of send-,  ing the estimates to:committees  will be more effective.  "While J recognize the usefulness of using the discussion of..,  estimates as a means of presenting the sort of argument we  have heard from memiber of the  N.D.P. ��� and we have been doing the same thing���- I hope that,  proper  use > of  the  committee7  system' will result in a far more 7  meaningful effort."       ,  Mr. Baldwin proceeded to suggest that there bo five-year estimates of  spending programs  and that each, year, as estimates   lt<3  were presented; there be figures  fr'  to show whether the; various pro- 7 y  jects were ahead or behind or-   ; ���  igirial1 estimates. Then, continu-  |  ing the Hansard report of his :%i.  remarks:  "Then, in four or five years,     '  we would ibe able to come to ,.  decisions, to evaluate the var  ious proposalb and possibly when  we come to deal with the supply  of money to the government we  would be able to exercise *a  judgment which at the present  time I am afraid can only be a  stalb in the dark.        .' Y  "There may be good and valid reasons why this should not  be done. My recollection is that  it was Secretary MoNamara in  the United! States who introduced into the department of defence there a budget program  ming and a more intelligent and  searching look.  "We heard from/ the miiiisfer  of finance that he too is now doing this scientifically and that he  has computers for the purpose.  "Talking afeout tribal-rituals,  ahd having in "mind' what the  minister of finance has suoceed-  ded in doing, I often think that  when he came to estimate his  budgetary proposals and his deficit he prolbaibly slaughtered a  chicken and' examined its entrails, and this is where he came  uip with the facts which he gave  to this house last fall, and again  recently."  Whether Mr. Baldwin's-; suggestion for more efficiency in  parliamentary scrutiny of - gov-  Coast News, Dec. 18, 1968.  -ernment -spending -is bestj-we  cannot say. He cannot say himself. -  However, his words have a  familiar ring.  Tribal ritualls, he says. Tribal  ritual�� is the same term applied  to this process by a man of even  more seniority in the house of  commons ��� Stanley Knowles,  N.DjP., of Winnipeg.  And, to my knowledge, no  spokesman of government or of  the government party has sug-  ested that the present system  is effective. In fact, Prim Minister Trudeau is one of the foremost proponents of parliamentary procedural reform.  But it wil_ not toe easy.  ��.ss-gffis  *&     >:*���:>���  ffeopte in o^r60 countries are celebrating this fe^ive season with CatlingBlackLabel Bcce  "    7 ������"!���'       A*  *#  53SS |g S�� __$&  ��  :     8    ��  r-ss*  Th&��dwrtisememisiK>tp---jtoofdis^  _���;*.*.*i#.��.*l*.*it-��ift-*i��i*l*l��i9.*.^^  -ss* ��� ��� .... ;Y7Y  Sunnycrest Plaza Merchants  FREE TURKEY DRAW  TWO TURKEYS   Given Away FREE Each Week Until December 31  FREE ENTRY FORMS AT ALL SHOPPING PLm STORES  Visits the Plaza from 12 fo 2 FRIDAY.

His report revealed that the  Pender Harbour school rated  12th out of 14 ranging from 117  to 198 pupils. The report reads  as follows:  The Department of Education  regards a small secondary  school as one which enrols fewer than 250 pupils. In this report, school's which have an enrolment of between 100 and 200  and keep all of their grade 11  and K2 pupils are considered. In  1966-617 there were 14 such  schools in B.C. Pender Harbour  is taken as an example.  One factor which can alter the  organization of a small school  is the proximity to a larger secondary school. Where such a  school is close the senior students can be transferred.  Once, a larger secondary  school affects the operation of  a smaller school many of the  problems Of the small school  are eliminated.  A second factor is the availability of specialized1 non-teaching personnel such as special  counsellors. There are seldom  trained specialists in a small  secondary school.  Problems are generally in the -  following areas: Staffing, operation, pupils and dropouts.  Staffing:  1. Generally the staff is more  unqualified. We are fortunate  not to suffer from this. Most  small schools are in sparsely  populated areas which do not  offer the same amenities as a  larger centre. This primarily affects women or wives of teachers. It also limits the numlber  of professional contacts between  teachers in the same specialty.  2. The staff must teach more  courses than in a larger school.  There are seldom repeat course  es and as many as six different  lessons must be prepared each  night. There are generally 16  different field's of. expertise  needed in a secondary school.  -Oif?   university  how   plans  to  >i prepare, a teacher for one field  :only, rather than two fields.  :-]$Y3.   In extra-curricular activi-  ;Yties there are too few teachers  to go around. A field such as  drama may never be available  because no one has the background  to start  a  club.  More  ' use of community help might  be a solution. Unfortunately  some of the people in the community will only help if they  are paid, unlike the staff who  are' expected to take activities  , in their free time.  Operation: ;  A small secondary school can  handle the junior high subjects  without too many profblems. We  are able to offer grade 8, 9 and  10 a choice ofCfjve electives by  cbmibining theiii into one group, f  It is the senior ^grades where  the problems arise.'  Pender is offering 17 .senior  courses this year, E-tphinstone 41  courses. Pender offers gradua  tion in three fields, Elphinstone  in 10.--  Iri ' order to offer graduation  iri these; three we must give 18  courses in alternate years and  double prqgra/m-others. If a, pupil fails a- course that is' not  given every year he must repeat it by correspondence. We  find, even with supervision, five-  sixths of the courses are not  completed or passed. We average 13 courses per year.  A small secondary school is  overentitled (because of the senior grades. We average 14 per  class in Grades' 11 and1 112 if we  include English and social' studies1; 11 without. In the junior  grades the average is 23 per  course.  One advantage^ is that the operation can quite easily be-altered for special occasions. We  do this as often as the occasion  permits us to do. A small school  can also attempt innovations  which might be difficult in a  more complex school. This year  we are attempting a research  period when all students study  what they want.  Pupils:  1. Advantage: It is easier for ,  a student to become involved' in  extra-curricular activities in a  small school. Some small school  have done exceptionally well in  the minor sports. Two years ago  Pender boys came seventh in a  B.C. volleyfbal. tournament.  2. Disadvantages: (a) Fewer  courses mean a greater chance  for a pupil to find school irrelevant.   ���������'��� ���������'��� - ,''  AD PENDER HARBOUR   ((b) Fewer teachers mean, in  a case of a personality clash  with a, teacher, that the situation may not be resolved by  changing teachers.  (c) Exceptional children are  often isolated. Occupational pupils are either carried along or  failed). High achievers are often brought down to the class  median unless there is competition provided by several pu-k  pils of the same ability.  ���(d) Dropouts are generally  higher., in a small secondary  'School* although' the graph does  not-reflect this theory. Causes-,  of dropouts' in a sniaM school  are: ��� ,.        -   j? ,  iMdre opportunity for unskilled  jobs.-.>_.  Fewecsprganized activities for'  yourag^pfebple in the community  which means mixing with' and  being influenced by school dropouts.  Fewer chances of seeing the  benefits and possibilities of a  good, education. Y  Maturation is speeded up when  teenagers are thrown in with  mature adults.  Many students find it difficult  to make the transition from a  relatively isolated community to -  an urfban area, and therefore  see little reason to obtain a  good education which in turn  means leaving the community.  Buildings and Facilities:  Facilities should be above the  maximum as laid down by the  department of education. In  most small schools there are no  outside sports facilities, library  or counselling services to sup  plement' the school as there are  in larger-areas.'  Pender isf fortunate^�� have  good! -facilities. There ��� is an excellent' gym, a good library with  .3400 'volumes, a good industrial  education shop and adequate  facilities ini other areas.  The facilities coupled with a  good staff - and few failures on  departmental exams has resulted in the school being accredited  for. two year periods. We believe that we are' the smallest  secondary school ' to achieve  that, distinction.  Indian tattoo  The Hon. Isabel P. Dawson,  minister without portfolio, has  announced that plans for a junior tattoo for native Indian students are being formulated.  Schools throughout the province  are being contacted to ascertain  the numlber of bands and dance  groups which would participate  in such a tattoo. .The first junior tattoo will! be held in Kamloops in May, 1969.  At_ present, there are a number of groups that are being contacted and no doubt more will  be contacted within the next  two or three months.

STORE  Gibsons  ^Minister John Munro pointed  out that retirement pensions  must be applied for; payment  is not automatic. Y  Application may be made at  any of the Canada Pension  Plan offices in 38 major centres  across Canada or at local offices in smaller centres. Applications for retirement pensions  under the Quebec Pension Plan  must be made to the Quebec  Pension Board.  If you are 66 now7 retired,  and have been a contributor to  they Canada Pension Plan, get  in touch with the nearest CPP  office at once. If you will become 66 in 1969, application  must be made within three  months prior to your birthday.  For applicants now 66 or  more, payment, will begin in  January, 1969.  Mr. Munro explained that the  eligible.age for retirement pensions is reduced each year until 1970 when it will- be 65. This  is consistent with similar age  reductions in the minimum  eligible age for Old Age Security  pensions and the Guaranteed  Income Supplement.  People who are 70 or more  and   who   have   contributed .to .  the Canada Pension Plan need  not be retired to receive a retirement  pension,   but applica-.  tion must still be made.

Why can I not continue to  ,draw unemployment insurance  .benefit when I am available for  part-time work? I paid my contributions to the Fund while I  iwas employed on this basis.  , A. Claimants who have contributed to the Unemployment  /Insurance fund on a part-time  (basis are generally granted a  treasonable length of time on  ^claim to find employment under  (Similar circumstances. The  .length of time for which unemployment insurance is granted  (depends on the previous period  jof employment on a part-time  (basis and the availability of  new employment.  Q. "I have not been paying  unemployment insurance for  years, as I have always been  earning over the ceiling. Now  I understand I must begin paying as I earn under the new  ceiling of $7800. I am permanently employed and will not  have to use the fund. Is there  no way in which I could exempt myself?"  A. The fact that you consider  yourself to be permanently employed  is  not ground  for  exemption. Most of us carry various types  of insurance protection, for example, automobile or  fire insurance, although each of  us does not expect that the <-6n-  lingency will arise. Apart from'  this   aspect,   the   principle   behind a  contributory scheme is  that of  spreading  the  cost  of  the plan in order that the cost  to  one   person  or   to  specific  groups of persons will not be  onerous.

A 6c Sports Series stamp providing recognition for curling,  the1 roaring game, will ibe released by the Canada Post Office  on Jan. 15," Postmaster General;  Eric Kierans announces.  The new issue, horizontal in  format, will mark the delbut of  David Eales,, a young native of  Toronto, Ontario, as a designer of Canadian stamps. Mr.  Eales attended Oa__wood Collegiate in Toronto prior to spending three years at Central Technical School of Art in the same  city studying for his chosen vocation. He is currently employed in a commercial art studio  in Toronto.  A recent estimate by a representative of the Canadian Curling Association places the number of curlers in Canada at  nearly one half million. Lady  players number approximately  100,000 while those at the high  school level total 40,888. Some  1900 men's culbs were affiliated  with the. Canadian Curling*'As-1:  '! sociation during the season 1967-  '68. .    " .  Although the origin of curling  , is   obscured   in   antiquity,   the  Ycurlers of the Town of Kilsyth  Uin Stirlingshire,'Scotland, whose  ������antecedents banded together in  ���2716,   are regarded  as   having  the   world's   oldest   continuing  ',. club; the Royal Montreal' Curl-  ? ing Clulb, organized in 1807,, pre-.  ���dates any other in North America. Evidence does ^exist that  ~> the game was in vogue in Scotland during the very early years  of the 16th  century  The early Icelandic Knattleikr  ^receives it9 share  of attention  as a possible  originating  contest   while   some   investigators  claim Continental Europe as the  source  from   which   it   sprang.  In 1890, after assessing claims  and counter-claims, the historian of  Scotland's   Royal  Caledonia  Curling Club, which affiliated groups in twelve countries regard as the Mother Club,  wrote:  "There are no facts by  which   we can  determine precisely the antiquity of the game.'

Bill  and Reta  Clarke  B & J STORE  Halfmoon  Bay  (By KEN EDWARDS)  Humber College (News Service  Is it really better to gave than  to receive?  Everyone has heard the  phrase "it is better to give than  to receive," and most would accept it as being true. This concept has been drilled into us  from early childhood, and, for  this reason, most people are  adept at giving glifts, but few  know how to receive them graciously.  If you feel that you are an  exception to this rule, then try  this experiment on yourself this  Christmas. Instead of giving  presents this year, just accept  all your gifts wiithoufc offering  any in return, and try not to  feel guilty.  There are few people who  have not experienced the embarrassment ofY receiving a  Chrisitmias card or/ gift from  someone whom they have not  included in their shopping list.  When this happens both parties  find themselves. in' an uneasy  situation. The person who gave  the gift is embarrassed for the  perplexed recipient. And, in  turn, the person who receives  the gift.feels uneasy about getting something for nothing.  The ones hit hardest by this  spirit of giving are families living on a tight budget. Every  Christmas thousands of people  stretch their budgets to the  breaking point, or even go into  debt, to waird off the anxiety of  receiving without giving.  This would allow them to relax and enjoy the celelbraftion  of Christ's birthday without com"  peting against each other in the  meaningless exchange of expensive gifts.  A gift is meant to be a symbol of affection, friendship and  love. Why,, then, should we insist on giving sutostitutes? Instead, we should give freely of  the real gift, love itself. This  would put the symbolic giving  and receiving of presents in  their proper perspective.  It's always ^ a pleasure  to say hello to all our friends af  Christmas and wish them the best  of everything!

Sechelt  (By iBH-L SANDFORD)  Humber College News Service  Modern Christaias celebrations are steeped in superstitions. '"���'7:Y '���������������':i;'''..  iSome people consider it lucky  to haive the Christmas pudding  stirred by everyone in the house.  It is considered unlucky, though  to send carolers away ^empty-  handled.  There aire those who consider  letting ivy predominate in the  Christmas decorations,.or brihig-  _ing holly into the house before  Christmas Eve,, to be counting  misfortune. But it is considered  good luck to. have mistletoe in  the house at Ohristimas.  When the clock strikes midnight on Christmas Eve, all the  doors should be opened to let  out the evil spirits, some people believe. In some rural areas  of the world, tying straw bands  on the snow-covered fruit trees  is thought to guarantee a bumper crop the following spring. Y  Prosperity will  come to  the;  first person who opens the door  on Christmas Day. But, to ensure good fortune to the household, the first person to ^enter  the house should be dark-haired.  On no account should a red-  haired person be the first to en-  ���ter.''.:.; .' ,���' 7 *Y Y  No memiber of the family  should be permitted to leave  the house until the dark-haired  person has visited.  A popular notion, held in theory at least by many Canadians,  is that good luck comes to those  who kiss under the mistletoe.  Mince pie is another good luck  charm. The number of pies eaten in different houses will determine the number of charmed  days in the coming year.  Nature and the weather also  enter the picture of Christmas  superstitions. Seeing the sun  shine through an apple tree on  'Christmas morn is a good omen,  but���  "If Christmas Day on a Monday fall,  A troublous winter we shall  have all."  x^^esc^tetwewwcf  -Arnold and Doris  COA-TWISE C0MIMCTK6*  g   i TRffi SttVK.

Elphinstone Recreation Group  Roberts Creek  Two unusual, immigrants from  India are on, the way to, British  Oolnaribia as. a result of the  $200,000. Project 100 carried out  Iby the students of this province  as their Centennial project.  , The immigrants are a pair  of three month old crocodiles.  At present they are mere  babies, about 14 inches, in length,  but when they get their full  growth each will be at least'  seven feet long with teeth to  match.  The young crocodles are the  gift of the youth of India to the  youth of British "Columbia in  gratitude for a mobile teaching  van with all the latest electronic and printed aids to education. The van was presented  to New Delhi Nov. 1 for use in  the rural areas of Rajasthan  and the crocodiles were accepted by James George, Canadian  high commissioner. They have  been living in his bathtub on a  diet of live fish awaiting air  transportation to British Columbia. They are expected in Vic-r  toria early in December.  The   high    commissioner    in  notifying Mr.7 I_. J. Wallace,  deputy .provincial' secretary and;  chairman of the Centennial  committee for British Columbia  stated that these crocodiles  were    a    gesture of friendship  The mobile: education unit  given to India is only one of  eleven made possible by: fund  raising activities of British Columbia school students.  BIRD GUARDIANS  Birds are the guardians of our  "forests. Without Ysuch birds as  woodpeckers, nut - hatches,  chickadees, warblers, wrens,  and many others our forests  would be destroyed by insects.  Some kinds of small birds hunt  insects on the bark others work  on the slender twigs and leaves,  and woodpeckers cut into the  tree itself, chiselling out grubs,  which are undeveloped bettles.  These grubs bore into the sap-  wood and if too numerous will  finally kill the tree. But the  woodpecker cuts into the bark  with his strong bill until he is  able to spear the insect with  his   barbed tongue.
