Pre sent plans call for the expected 430 plus pupils in grades  8, 11 and 12 to start at 8 a.m.  and the more than 300 grades 9  and 10 pupils to end their shift  at 5 p.m. This will almost double transportation costs and result in additional teachers being  required!  The result Of the inclusion of  48 pupils from the Reserve  school-will also mean re-opening  Halfmoon Bay. school to relieve  pressure in Sechelt Elementary  school where overcrowding  would result unless redistribution was arranged.  As matters now stand 27 grade  one pupils will move from Sechelt school to the re-opened  Halfmoon Bay school, requiring  an additional teacher. At the  suggestion of Trustee William  Malcolm this may be changed  to higher grade pupils. Pupils  leaving the Sechelt school will  be replaced by. 19 from the reserve school.  . The remaining 29 reserve  school pupils will attend Davis  Bay school which will take seven and Roberts Creek school  which will take 22. Increased accommodation at Roberts Creek  school will be a portable classroom from Sechelt.

Transportation angles and costs must  also be explored.  School trustees after hearing  Eugene Yablonski outline a  teachers federation and department of education plan to institute a study, of culturally deprived children decided to invite those involved in the study  to work in this area. The proposal came through the Sechelt  Teachers'    Association,    repre  sented by Mr. Yablonski.  District Superintendent R. R.  Hanna reporting for Frank Fuller, adult education director,  said that adult education classes  were now paying their way and  not dependent on a budget subsidy. The bad January weather  had an adverse effect on attendance but now things are much  brighter, Mr. Hanna said.  On pulblic relations a notice  of motion was presented by  Trustee Mrs. L. Labonte, asking that copies of regular board  meetings' be distributed to principals, supervisor of elementary  instruction, adult education director, district librarian, build-  i ng and grounds superintendent  and the press. Special meetings  called for specific purposes and  meetings of the committee of  the whole are not regular meetings.  Teacher resignations were accepted from Mrs. Muriel A. W.  Neilson and Shirley Reid; Gibsons, effective June 30. Roberts  Creek principal M. C- Mactav-  ish withdrew his previous request for educational leave for  the^iiext.school year-chiefly due  to personal reasons.

A  student will be selected from  members of the Gibsons School  Patrol to attend the 9th annual  Safety School Patrol Jamboree  in Ottawa May 16 and 17.  Czech choir coming!  Hon. Isabel Dawsori, minister  without portfolio, has announced  that a provincial government  grant of $5,500 has been approved to assist the Children-to-Chil-  dren Foundation of the Cultural  Exchange program with the expenses involved in bringing the  Brno Children's Choir from  Czechoslovakia to British Columbia for about 15 days in July.  The grant is conditional on the  choir coming to British Columbia, and on the Children-to-Chil-  dren Foundation raising the remainder of the total estimated  expenses of $11,300.  Mrs. Dawson expressed great  pleasure with the grant made  by the provincial government,  pleasure that was shared by  Mr. Hubert Klyne Headley of  Gibsons, president of the Chil-  dren-to-Children Foundation of  the cultural Exchange program.  The public heard recordings  of this world famous choir, di  rected by Professor Doctor  Frantisek Lysek, on Tuesday,  at 10:03 a.m. on CBU, radio.  Many school students listened to  this. performance, as well as  professional groups at colleges  and universities. It was the first  time the choir has been heard  in Canada.  Featured in their program- of  liturgical and secular music will  be Peace, a triptych for trebel  choir and orchestra. Mr. Head-  ley was commissioned to write  the music for this work, and the  poems for parts 1 and 3 were  written by his daughter, Claudia ���  Headley, at age 13. The poem  for Part 2 was written by another youngster, Elizabeth Mackay, daughter of Morton Mac_-  kay of Gibsons. In this way, the  work is representative of the  cultural exchange program ���  Canadian children wrote the  words, and Czechoslovakian  children sing them.  Elementary choir to sing  i  Thursday evening March 20  in Gibsons Elementary Gym the  school choir will be in full voice  for the school's annual spring  concert.  Choir members have been rehearsing regularly since Christmas under the able direction  of Mrs. M. Neilson and in the  final rehearsals with the assistance of Mrs. M. Evans of Selma  Park as  accompanist.  Pupils of the school have  been working all school year  in the band under the direction  of Frank Postlethwaite will be  heard in several selections. The  band has been doing extra rehearsing with Mr. D., McKee at  noon hours to polish up their  repertoire.  Pupils from Grades 5 & 6.  will present a comedy entitled  A Matter of Conscience depicting the scrapes a 12-year-old  boy gets into when he contrives  to get rid of his conscience for  a day. There have been some  mysterious rehearsals by pupils  in Mr. McKee's class and their  play remains a special secret  until curtain time.  The  public  is invited  to  enjoy the school's offering. 2    Coast News, March 19, 1969.  IWf  St; Pierre's Indiana mythical figiirie  Serving the Mt.

The three opposed argue that a great deal of public work has been  done on the grounds with the strong support of the Kiwanis club of  Gibsons. They do not want to see this work go down the drain.  The proponents are taking the attitude .there'.might.ibe some  good in the government proposal to provide other park land in the  same area. The present acreage on Park road runs parallel to the  road between the highway and Reid road. The government proposes to supply land parallel with the highway from Park road towards Elphinstone school athletic field.  It is understood that.provincial authorities also plan to be responsible for replacing the present cleared sports area with one on  the proposed park site and while this is under construction, leave  the present sports field in use.  Brothers Memorial Park was a gift about ten years ago from  the Jackson family of Wilson Creek in memory of the Jackson brothers who were prominent personages in their time. Trustees were  appointed to look after the park. They met recently and by ma-  pority vote decided' against cutting up the park for a highway.  As far as the Coast News can discover, when Gibsons council  takes over the area of expansion extending as far as Park road,  thereby obtaining control, over the park, the present board of trustees may cease to exist. Further, according to amendments to the  Municipal Act now before the legislature under the name of the  Hon. Dan Campbell1, minister of municipal affairs, a new section  will be added to the Municipal act which could give the municipal  council the right, by bylaw approved by the Lieutenant-Governor  in Council, to dispose of any portion of such land under its1 control  iri enchange for other lands suitable for a park or public square.  However, it is not as simple as passing a bylaw. Council must  give notice of its intention by publication of such notice in the  press. There will most likely be means of protest accompanying  such notice. However the final result will likely rest in the public  domain. Which will win the right-of-way, the highway or the park?  Pros -, and cons will no doubt be argued.  A welcome interlude!  In times of international troubles it is a change to note that  something of an international cultural nature at the child level is  going to take place. The Brno Children's choir from Czechoslovakia is coming to British Columbia and plans a three day stay in  Gibsons area as well' as make a tour in the province, Powell River,  Victoria and Vancouver included.  This comes as the result of the work of H. Klyne Headley, former music supervisor of this school district, when he was in Czechoslovakia last year, j  The provincial government has made a grant of $5,500 towards  expenses amounting to.$11,300 and Mr. Headley,, president of the  Children-to-Children Foundation of the Cultural Exchange program  anticipates raising the remainder.  At the time Mr. Headley journeyed to Czechoslovakia last  summer he had the blessing of the department of external affairs  in Ottawa and his trip has blossomed into an international cultural venture of considerable importance. With a good many Czecho  Slovaks now new citizens of Canada, it will be cementing a strong  tie at the cultural level which could do both peoples a great deal  of good. These new Canadians will look forward to a touch of the  homeland. It should not be overlooked that the idea had a good part  of its origins in Giibsons.  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Heavy oil seepage from a  sunken barge in Collingwood  channel has created havoc  among the seabird population  along the coast. CBC TV cameras photographed high school  pupils striving to save some of  the birds.  Alfred August was the choice  of the Sechelt Indian band as  chief to succeed Chief Charles  Craigan who died recently.  Mrs. A. M. Mortimer, Navy  "mother" died in St. Paul's  hospital. She was a resident of  Roberts Creek. Her life work  had been among navy personnel.  TEN YEARS AGO  The provincial government  announced it would accept 40  percent of this year's school  budget instead of 45 percent  which it assumed last year.  Pender Harbor telephones  were turned on to the automatic dialing system. There  were 245 phones in the district.  Roberts    Creek,    Port Mellon,  Sechelt and Gibsons Scouts and  Cubs have started operations  for a busy summer.  Dal Triggs asked the board  of trade to seek a change in  color for the blinker light in  Gibsons Harbor. He urged an  orange light instead of green  light, hard to see in a green  background.  20 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbor has decided  to form its own board of trade.  This was revealed at a meeting  of Sechelt Peninsula Board of  Trade at Halfmoon Bay.  At a VON meeting in Gibsons it was debated whether  VON activities should be paid  for under the Hospital tax.  Sixty members of three Teen  Town organizations in the area,  attended a dance at Roberts  Creek.  Three men with guns, a man  with two dogs, and a food-stocked trap failed to catch a Wilson Creek cougar. The cougar  made off with the food in the  trap.  On Thurs., March 6 Paul St.  Pierre, MP for Coast-Chilcotin  spoke on Indian Affairs in the  house of commons when Frank  Howard, Sfeeeria prepentfcd a  motion which maintained that  native people were being denied fundamental rights. Here  is What he said:  Occasionly, during the course  of this debate I have heard  mention of this figure called  the Indian as though every Indian in Canada were somehow  merged into a single recognizable entity. This mythical figure  we call the Indian expresses  ithe unanimous collective  'thoughts of all the Indians in  Canada. This is a false premise  and as along as we persist in  it in our handling of the important matters of Indian administration, administration by  Indians themselves or by the  Indian department, we cannot  be right.  There is no such man as the  Indian in  Canada.  Indians  are  people of immense variety, and  there   is  no   reason   why  they  should not disagree. It is true  that,   for instance,   in  most  of  the provinces of Canada  there  is a single Indian organization.  Speaking in terms     of    fairly  large   organizations,   there  are  at   least  four   different   Indian  organizations in British Columbia Which have  slightly  different  views  on what the  course  of their people should be.  *     *     *  Occasionally   these   organizations     are     viewed  somewhat  critically   by   the   white   community. They say:  "Why don't  you    people    combine?     Why  can't you speak for British Columbian Indians  with  a  single  voice?  Some of the people who ask  this question sit in this house  where there happen to be four  political, parties, not one of  which is in total agreement with  any other party. If it is right  for us, then it is also right for  the Indian, and this leads us  a little further. It leads to the  question of .consultation with.;  the Indians.      f , M  Let us, and let the minister,  recognize the fact that we cannot consult with the Indians of  Canada and get one, single, .  cohesive answer as to what  they want. In fact, it is amost  an insult to suggest that we  can go to the Indians from one  side of this nation to the other  asking: "Tell us what you  want" and assuming that they  are- all going to tell us the  same thing, therefore, it is  merely a matter of meeting  their requests in greater or.  lesser degree. This is not to  happen.  -?'        sfc        *  There are great variations  even within a single area in  my own riding of Coast-Chilcotin. I made a rough calculation a short time ago and I  found that there were over 30  reserves in my. riding. Many  of the people cannot converse  with one another except through  the. medium of the English  language because their own  languages are of such a vastly  different nature.  In the course of the consultation    meetings,    how; many  points of view have been  put ;.  forward  on   how   the   Indians  ���  feel as to their role as citizens  ���  of Canada, citizens of the pro- <���  vince, citizens of North Ameri- ;  ca and citizens of what might  be called a pan-Indian society?  In each case there are at least  fourvdistinct views held by the  Indians. I should like to quote  one from  a  publication  called  the   "Indian   Magazine"   which  I am sure many hon. members  who are interested in this subject receive. Let us  see  what  Chief Max Gros-Louis of Huron  Village near   Quebec   city  had  to say:  I can't see the Indians  belonging to the provinces,  because there's going to be  another separation among  Indians. We are already  separated by the United  States. Now if we start separating by provinces,  that's going to be the end  of the Indian.  That is one man's view. The  consultative group has heard  from Indians who positively  want to be citizens of the province in which they reside.  They feel that this is of prime  importance to them. They feelv  that in many provinces of Canada they are being deprived,  in greater or lesser degree, of  basic rights as provincial citizens.  There is a third view among  Indians which is that the international border is an artificial  line; that if is one which should  not apply to them and that the  Indian society is not of the  nation of Canada nor of the  nation of the United States but  is a loosely connected society  of a single group based on a  single culture whose home is  North America.  There is yet a fourth view  held that within Canada the  Indian people are not Canadians but are allies of the British Crown; that they are a nation separate within Canada  and that their true connection  is to the Royal House of Britain.  .' ���   ���  *     ';'*''.'*.���  I am not going to suggest  which of these views predominates amongst Indians. I have  some ideas, but I do not know  whether it is up to me to suggest them at this time. However, I would point out that  every one of these views has  some legitimacy and every one  of them has some followers in  Canada. Therefore, whenever I  hear that any man, particularly  a white man but also an Indian, claims that he knows  what all the Indian people of  Canada really want, my faith  in his knowledge and judgment  is diminished. 1 bring this point  forward.in connection with the  delays in bringing forth the  new Indian act and the legislation for an Indian claims commission.  There is one difference between the present administration of the Indian department  and those which preceded it.  I think it is that we are attempting consultation with the  Indian. As the hon. member  for Skeena said, we have always claimed we were consulting them, but did we really do  it? I can quote a good friend  of mine in this regard, Chief  Dan George of the Burrard  No. 3 reserve. I recall him saying  once:   "Oh yes, the  white  man is always coming around  and, he says to us 'what do you  want' but he never waits for  us to answer."  I hope that perhaps one time  we will 'wait for the Indian  to answer, and we will receive  a multitude of replies. Those  replies are'going1.to coihe slowly but surely if we are committed to asking questions and  waiting for answers. Then, we  cannot arbitrarily say:  "Sorry,  you are too long in giving your  answer. We do not have the  time to wait. Here is the new  Indian act, take it or leave it."  Such a course would be a denial of the fundamental principle, as I understand the minister's remarks, underlying the  policy that this department  wishes to follow.;  There are 7a:'; great many fea-  (Continued on Page 3)  ��^^*^^*��**^*^����**��^^-��  N.

"Many people think that boils are caused by  over-rich blood, or possibly a virus from a cold.  Boils usually are a local infection started by  the bacteria found on the skin. The staphylococcus or "staph" germ is considered the culprit.  The germs work their way into or through the  skin. They form a colony and multiply rapidly.  The bloodstream rushes white corpuscles to .the  spot to kill the invading germs: A boil must be  kept covered, for if these germs leak out, more  boils may form on your skin.or the skin of someone who touches you. A physician usually can.  relieve a boil by prescribing an antibiotic treatment.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine.

I would not pretend to criticize the record of Canadian  white governments in their  handling of Indian affairs but  at the same time, though speaking from less experience because the period  of my  close  association as a    member    of  parliament has been briefer, I  would not attempt tp defend  all the actions of the present  Indian affairs branch. Like the  hon. member for Skeena I  have the feeling that it is shot  ���through with a very strong degree- of paternalism, and this  cannot be good; it must go. I  certainly agree that the earlier  the Indian affairs branch can  bring about conditions in which  it is ho longer required, the  better it will be for the Indians.  The story of a young Indian nun who teaches at a residential  school for Indian children, in the Yukon, Sister Balonika stars Vi  Powlan^n-the-title'.role. The 90-miriute^film-^drama,^shot on Canada's west coast, will be telecast on CBC-TV's Festival series,  Wednesday, March 26. In this scene from the film, Miss Powlan  as Sister Balonika is seen with one of her young pupils, plsiyed  by Donna Dick.  I too, would like / to see the  Indian Act abolished but we  must realize that we have certain obligations to the Indians  of this country by treaty. Some  of these treaties we have bent,  and others we have broken.  Then, as hon. members are  aware, there are Indians in  British Columbia with whoni we  have never signed treaties of  any kind. -  Nevertheless, since we have  signed treaties and assumed responsibilities to these people,  how are these responsibilities  to be discharged except through  an Indian Act ��� call it by another name, if you wish. I think  the Indian people must themselves surrender these special  rights voluntarily. We have no  right unilaterally to push aside  these agreements and wipe this  legislation off the books.  It seems to me that whether  . we call it an Indian Act or  something else, we must keep  legislation respecting the special rights of the* Indian people onv the law books of this  country until and unless they  themselves choose to ask that  it be removed.  There is one other point I  should like to raiseV and I feel  it involves a moral responsibility on the part of the white  majority in this country. There  are many Indian's who wish to  leave the reserves, move into  white society and integrate  completely, losing their Indian  identity. This should be their  right. Since in most cases they  are disadvantaged people, I believe we have a duty to give  them special help in this re^  gard. But what of the Indians  who wish to remain Indians,  who wish to live on their reserves and lead the traditional  lives of their people? Is this  not also their right? Do they  not haye the right, if tihey  choose, to continue to exist as  a separate, non - integrated  group in Canadian society? _  >je      *      *  It seems to me that both by  treaty and in terms of ordinary  justice the Indians who choose  to remain Indians have '��� the  right to do so. Does this neces-j  sarily place them in the position of being second class citizens? I believe that throughout most of our history this  has been the effect. By choos-  iing to live on the reserves, by  choosing to retain the old ways,  they have tended to become  second class citizens. Surely,  the Canadian nation can find  some way to guaranteeing that  these people can live different  lives without obliging them to  be poor for the most part, as  they are, or poorly educated,  or discriminated against in any  real way because they are Indians.  Surely,    out    of our present  examination  of the Indian Act  the   most   important   thing  we  can bring forward is a recognition on the part of the government, on the part of civil servants  and  on the part of the  ordinary people of Canada that  when  we  meet  an  Indian we  are  meeting a person,  one individual. And there is every bit  as niuoh variety among people  of Indian ancestry as  there is  among peope of any other race.  " ';*     *     *  Before I close, I should like  to comment on one point made  by the hon. member for Skeena.  I should like to give my fullest  support to his plea for the early  setting up of an Indian claims  commission. Let us not fool ourselves. The government of this  country  has  neglected :to   sign  treaties such as the Jay Treaty  and  Treaties  8  and  11  in  the  north.   We have  made .treaties  and broken them. We have failed to make treaties in British  Columbia  west  of the  rockies.  and in other parts of the north  with the Eskimos'.  This record of doubtful faith,  and in some cases of bad and  broken faith, is a festering sore  in this country. Let us not delay any longer than is necessary before forming an Indian  claims commission to review  these old disagreements, to  patch up old difference and to  start us in the 1970s with some  of the old hatred and bitterness wiped away. I thank the  house for its attention.  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  ((By a Practicing Lawyer)  Many questions have been  asked' concerning the granting  of bail in a criminal case.  Every person charged with a  criminal offence is presumed  innocent till the contrary is  proved. This, being one of the  bed rock principles of our  criminal law, ithe question  might well be asked, "why then  should an accused be held in  jail pending his trial?" Against  this, is the very practical necessity of ensuring that an accused  will be present when the trial  date arrives. These opposing  principles are resolved by a  recognizance or recognizance of  bail. This is an obligation or  promise to appear for the trial  and follows logically from the  legal presumption of innocence.  In countries where there is a  presumption of guilt and an accused is required to prove himself innocent, for example,  France, recognizance of bail is  very rare.  When will an accused be released without bail or on his  own recognizance? When will  a cash bail be set? ��� And in  what amount? When will sureties be required ��� and how  many? The answers to these  questions depend on a number  of factors. Firstly the accused's  record  must  be  considered.  If  Copyright applied foi  it is long and serious, and especially if it includes a previous conviction of jumping  bail, bail may be refused or  set at a high figure. If the  accused has at the time been  released on bail on another  charge, this will be a reason  for a refusal of bail. The seriousness of the alleged offence is  important ��� the more serious  the charge the less likelihood  of bail being set or the more  likelihood of it being set at a  high figure.  The most important factor is  the degree of the accused's  roots in the community ��� has  he a job, a home, a family,  does he own real property? If  the answer to these questions  is yes, he is likely to appear  for trial.  In serious cases, for example,  charges of trafficking in narcotics one or more sureties  may be required, that is one  or more other persons may be  required to post a cash or real  property bond. If the accused  fails to appear at the itrial date  ��� estreatment of bail proceedr  ing.s are commenced. The sureties may appear and offer some  explanation why the bail should  not be forfeit to the crown. All  or any portion of the bail may  be ordered forfeited.  Nursing group planned  A luncheon meeting to introduce Mrs. B. D. L. Johnson,  regional vice-president for the  mainland coast of the Red  Cross, was held March 11 at  the home of Mrs. William Y.  Higgs, Gower Point Road.  Ways and means were dis:  cussed for the holding a fund-  raising drive for the Red Cross.  Mrs. Johnson mentioned that  assistance to burned-out fami-  .lies, supplying blood plasma  and. water safety classes held  at Gibsons and Sechelt are  some of the benefits the area  has received from the iRed  Cross.  Instructors for swimming and  water safety cost the Red  Cross    approximately    85c per  student, she said.  From discussions at the meeting it was evident there is considerable interest in forming a  borne nursing group. Mrs. Johnson reported the possibility of  providing Red Cross training in.  this field will be investigated  and reported on at the next  meeting: A follow-up meeting  will be held in the Red Cross  headquarters at Roberts Creek  at 2 p.m., Wed., March 26. At  this time it is hoped that a  committee will be formed to  carry, out a campaign forfunds.  Present at the meeting were  Miss E. Harrold, Mesdames N.  Ewart, P. Finlayson, J. Blake,  L. Labonte, C. Bulger, C. Warn,  J. Macey and E. Sherman.  move into a Westwood home  this spring  Rents are soaring. Apartments are becoming a luxury.

The beginning in elementary  school of a change over from  the old curriculum-eentiered  lock-step grades dn which a certain amount of knowledge was  ito be acquired in a certain  time, to a system of individual  development, in which a pupil  progresses at hjis own rate.  Abolition of letter-grade report ' cards in elementary  schools, replaced by parent-  teacher conferences and individual comments on each child.  Introduction of open-area  classrooms.  Hiring of a highly specialized  supervisory staff to help teachers.  Introduction of the Initial  Training alphabet to (teach  reading.  Deployment of elementary  school staffs to take advantage  of special qualifications such as  music and art.  Hiring of professional help at  the elementary level for the  emotionally disturbed child.  Eight other items were of lesser significance but showed  what progress was going on  such as formation of a band,  education meetings and the issuing of bulletins to the public.  Having made this impressive  progress over the last few  years, the report continues, we  seem to have come to a standstill on the road to better education at this time. There is a  growing concern among many  people that the board is about  to abandon its responsibility to  education by listening to counsel of unquestioning submission  to Victoria. We do not believe  that the school board is the local  agency of the legislature'-' but  represents the municipalities  and rural areas of the district.  We are concerned that the  board's inability to explain the  financial situation to parents  and taxpayers will jeopardize  the progress already made.  We are confused by the fre���;;  quent references to the number  of teachers over entitlement and  pupil-teacher ratios as laid  down by the department of education. We think a much better  understanding of board problems by the general public  could be achieved by a full  and careful explanation of what  is meant by these terms.  We do not believe we can afford to economize by increasing  the number of students per  teacher. A study should be  authorized by the board immediately and strong recommendation to Victoria for the  recognition of the need for a  number of small classes for  disadvantaged children.

We are concerned that some  of the budget cuts will be detrimental to the proper upkeep of  our capital assets, buildings  and equipment in which millions of dollars of taxpayers'  money  is invested.  It should be possible for the  board to give a straightforward  assessment of our financial  plight, how many instructional  units we have and how many  are recognized by the department.  We are perturbed by the secretary's announcement' of alleged over-expenditures in past  years which have to be repaid  to the government.  Various school districts have  benefitted  from   the 21  million  dollar supplementary estimates  for the department of education.  Our board has not told us whether they too have requested additional funds for the current  budget.

The prominence of this statement plus your objective and  unemotional editorial are to be  commended. I admire Mrs.  Glassford's statement.  The above are in sharp contrast to the emotional front  page editorializing done in Sechelt.  I hope on the basis of these  statements the citizens of the  Sunshine Coast will back their  fellow citizens of the Sechelt  Indian band in not letting this  matter drop till satisfactory  answers have been obtained.  ��� John Daly, Garden Bay  'Editor: I was quite amused  with the third editorial on the  second page of your last issue.  It reminded me of the remark,  on what food doth this our Caesar feed that he has grown so  great. I wonder how long the  writer has known the Mounted  Police,  I  first knew  them  in  1907 when they were known as  the North West Mounted Police,  I was living in Lethbridge. I  have seen first hand the work  of the police in Quebec, Ontario  Manitoba, Alberta and British  Columbia.  I have done aibout 11 years  police work myself, first up in  Northern Ontario when in  charge of the largest ^sulphite  mill in Canada at that time for  the receiver and then as a justice of the Peace and finally as  a Stipendiary Magistrate. The  latter two are peace officers and  if any trouble breaks out and  no police are present to deal  with it it is the duty of the Justice of the Peace or magistrate  to do the police work.  _j^say without any hesitation  that this experience over 60  years has shown me that I would  far rather deal with the Indian than the so - called' white  men. I never had any trouble  with the Indians around Minstrel  Island and there were three reserves within five miles of there  Add to that the fact that the ho-  CROSSWQRD   +   +   +   By A. C.

I have counted 85 boats moored in the harbor and at that  time the total payroll from the  adjacent camps was'well over  a million a month, I compiled^  ���' the total after calling on every  camp. So I am stating undisput-  able facts. In fact when I wantY  ed help it was the Indians that I  called on.  The best example is the day  the Indians were first admitted  to the beer parlors. There was  a great roaramong|he RCMP  when it was announced that  they were going to be admittedY  they (the ROVliP) were going to  turn iri their uniforms, they did  not want to be police under;  those conditions.  As there were no police sta-t'  tioned at Minstrel Island it was  my duty to check up the Ibeer,  parlor the first day the Indians  were  admitted.  I went to the  hotel about three in the afternoon   arid when I  opened the  front  door I  heard  an   awful  racket in the beer parlor. On  going in I found three lots of  so-called white men fighting toot  not   one   solitary  Indian,   they7  were all seated at their tables  drinking sensibly.  Some of the white men appeared before me and were fined for their part in the fights.  This is rather a different story  and is founded on first hand  facts. The RCMP have been  going down hill since the lf30s  when James Macbrien quit as  Commissioner is a well known  fact. ���B. L. Cope.  Blake C. Alderson, D.C.

Stuart was unable to keep his lecture appointment, but hope to hear him at  another date.  President Mrs. S. Rowland,  and Secretary Mrs. M. Tibb reported on the Thrift Shop purchase of a flame photometer  and blood gases machine, important laboratory equipment!  needed by the hospital.  Volunteer workers whose day  at the hospital is the 4th Monday will in future aid in the  physiotherapy  department.'  Several inquiries have been  received as to the auxiliary's  catering service and plans were  discussed for jobs on the agenda.  Interested persons are invited to visit the Roberts Creek  Red Cross cottage on March 26  when Mrs. B. D. L. Johnson,  Regional vice-president for the  coastal area will be present. As  well as meeting with the local  group, Mrs. Johnson hopes to  encourage women of Gibsons  to form a working unit there  since there- is interest shown  in this respect/ The local work-  ers.will exhibit-samples of their  work and supply information  where needed. They hope to  welcome, besides Gibsons  guests, new local members for  their own group. Roberts Creek  Red Cross has been in operation  for 30 years.  Visitors at the Leask home  on Beach Ave were Mrs. Leask's  daughter, Mrs. Angie Duncan,  and Mrs. Rosemary Barnaston.  They, enjoyed the good weather  and spent much time on the  beach.  Mrs. Martha Weal is a patient in St. Mary's Hospital, in  London, England. To visit her  son, Don, she left Vancouver  one afternoon recently, stopped  briely at San Francisco and  New York, and arrived in London at midnight, their time.  After a few days of sight-seeing  with her son, she found herself  in the hospital, where, according to word received by her  daughter, Mrs. Arnold Blomgren, she seems to be enjoying  the coziness of the hospital and  the care and humor of a staff  consisting mainly of Irish girls.  At the time of writing she  had no idea as to how long she  might be detained there nor  how long she might stay in Eng  land, but possibly it will be late  summer before she returns.  This is the first long trip for  one of the district's pioneers  who came to Sechelt as a tiny  child, later moving to Gibsons,  where she received much of her  schooling. She was living it-  Vancouver, at the time of her  marriage over 40 years ago and  returned to the Sunshine Coast  with her husband, Albert Weal,  to settle, at Roberts Creek,  where she has remained. She  has been an active participant  in the growth of the district.  22nd Annual Meeting  Pender Harbour Credit Union  JOLLY ROGER INN  Secret Cove  Friday, March 28 ���8 p.m.  COMPLEMENTARY DINNER 6:30  Reservations available at Credit Union Office by  Wednesday,   March  26  Ttltphon.
