That discharge of untreated domestic sewage to enclosed  or confined bodies of salt water  be prohibited where there is any  doubt as to the adequacy of the  flushing effect of the tide.  2. That the discharge of untreated domestic sewage to any  Sbody of fresh water such as a  'lake, a river, a tributary to a  river, be prohibited:  3.

S$d<_^et_^^ b&y  returned to the people wher.e it  belongs instead of being rthe nar-  rowvdomain of a .special interest ! group, was the message  brought to a special seminar  meeting of school trustees by  Jaimes Campbell, president of  the iB'.C. School Trustees association. Speaking at a meeting in  Vancouver, Saturday, Campbell  called for an extensive revision  of the method of. establishing .  curriculum for British Columbia  schools.  At the moment the school curriculum is established, by a series of committees consisting of  a majority of classroom teachers either appointed or nominated by the B.C. Teachers? Federation, university personnel and  department of education officials. There is. no lay-elected voice  in the establishment of curriculum and the decisions on what  is taught, as well as how it is  taught, are completely in the  hands of the teaching profession  Campbell   went   on   to   say:  'Teachers   are   special   instru-  .^s^f;,^^^jv.^fe^^:;^ii^7.^^  ^be^fTih^iatear^by Tthe-system  from any real role in these decisions."  ,  A complete restructuring of  the approach to curriculum was  suggested by Campbell and the  time has come, he said, for the  provincial government to abandon the present cumbersome  traditionMbound system of developing curriculum, and publicly  and positively adopt a new approach to this vital question. He  urged the establishment of a  provincial curriculum board  consisting of the minister of education and two of his senior  officials, representatives of all  parties in the legislature and the  balance of the board coming  from the ranks of the province's  school trustees. This board  maintaim a continuing review of  the purposes of education in  this province to ensure that education remained relevant to developments in society.  TRUSTEE  PRESIDENT  -.;-   ..., ��� . Y^^*^?��^Y$r?  The- second level   would -rbe  curriculum steering committees  with representation from the discipline involved, whose function  would toe to apply the broad  principles established by the  curriculum board in developing  approaches to specific subjects.  The third level would be curriculum revision committees  consisting of teachers and specialists who would plan the details of the courses to reflect the  philosophy of the steering committee and the curriculum board  CampbeLl said that he would  like to see the development of a  provincial core curriculum  which would be required in all  school districts, but which would  leave ample time in the school  day for the local school board  and it�� staff to give programs  entirely at the local option. This  would go a long way to solving  the problems of _f lack of flexibility in school programming.  Elect 7 to Arts Council  ments1 of organized society and  as such cannot and must not be  totally free agents. Their own  view of the process must always  be important, but must cease to  be exclusive. Their realm of decision making, as a class, must  be more carefully defined, to  encompass ways and means and  must not include dominance over  purpose and aims. The present  condition in which a rather  anonymous selection of teachers  university people and departmental officials plan quietly and  privately to work their collective will on the public is a natural outcome of the defensive position of the civil service and does  not represent the effective expression of the wishes of the  fommunity."  jjpHe concluded by stating: "I  I'd the increasingly miEtant demands from the ranks and file  __ the teachers that they ibe in-  / volved in the decision making  process interesting. I interpret  this as both an indictment of the  system and an indictment of  .hose making the decisions now.  The interesting thing is that the  >vrath of the militants is turned  on the school boards, who have  The Sunshine Coast Arts Coun  cil March 22 annual meeting,  chaired by Mr. Bipin Oza, elected seven directors, Mrs. Judy  Baeckmann', Mrs. Alice Murray,  Bud Blatchford, Ross Gibson,  Jack Whaites, Stan Trueman  and Bernie Baeckmann. Three  continuing directors, Mrs. Doris  Crowston, Mr. Vince Bracewell  and Mr. Harry Almond, have  one more year to go.  Charles Bedford 'displayed  part of his famous shell collection for which he has received  offers from the United States.  Mr. Oza explained Mr. Bedford  would much prefer the collection be retained in the community and asked if anyone knew of  a suitable lodging place for it.  Mr. Oza also spoke of lack of  support for local artists, particularly visiting artists who were  educated here.  Mrs. Klyne Headley, who accompanied Mr. Headley on his  trip to Czechoslovakia last year,  showed pictures of people, events and places that she took, in  eluding some of Mr. Headley  working with Czechoslovakian  children in their spotless, attractive   schoolrooms  and with  Dr. F. Lysek, choir director.  Mr. Headley, president of the  Children-to-JChildren Foundation  of the Cultural Exchange program, is largely responsible for  bringing the Brno Children's  choir here in July.  Speaking on the Children-to-  Children movement, Mrs. Head-  ley stated it was dedicated to  exchange the best that children  are creating in the humanities  and sciences to help lay the  foundations for world peace  through understanding; through  exchange to motivate children  ot achieve higher standards of  equality and increase their productivity; to establish in all  countries agencies for receipt  and distribution of children's  creative work, and through the  mass media to facilitate communication and the sharing of  these ideas for the betterment  of mankind.

Further attractions have been  obtained to add to the numlber  of outstanding industrial displays promised for the fair. Mr.  W. A.

That, where a sampling  program is to be undertaken in  any area where there is a matter of health significance, it  shall be deemed expedient that  such.a program shall undertake  to co-ordinate the respective interests of the health department  and the Pollution Control branch  in:a single joint effort.  These policy declarations are  carried out through the issue of  control permits. Regulations gov  erning procedures are summarized to encourage a better public understanding of the responsibilities involved.  As already stated, under the  Pollution Control act it is necessary that a permit be obtained to discharge waste. The details, of the procedure to be followed in obtaining a permit are  set out in the regulations pertaining to the act.  These regulations require that  upon receipt of an application,  the director of pollution control  forward copies to the various  government departments such  as health, water resources, and  recreation and conservation,  which are directly concerned in  pollution control activities. This  requirement has been established to-ensure that the interests  of. these agencies onYbehalf. of  the public: are co-ordinalted,in  any permit issued.,    ��� 77'7Y..Y'YY-  Pollution ; G6ir.trof-boardto ineqr- Prison  porate the various control requirements into a single permit.  Health determines the water  quality standard's which must be  met from a health standpoint.  Recreation and conservation pre  scribe standards for fish, wildlife and recreation. These examples serve to indicate the individual responsibilities of affected departments and agencies.  The regulations also provide  that any person who considers  his rights would be affected by  either the issuance* or non-issuance of a permit may, within 30  days, present; objections to the  director of Pollution Control.  Following the waiting: period  for the lodging of objections in  connection with an application,  the director of Pollution Control  then; must consider all relevant  material presented' to him before he arrives at a decision as  to whether a permit should be  granted or refused.  Beyond this, British Columbia's pollution control/legislation makes further provision for  an appeal to the Pollution Control board against any decision  of, the director of Pollution Control, whether this decision is  either to grant or refuse a permit.  In the event of a disagreement  with the Pollution Control board  decision on the appeal, the act  offers yet further avenues of  appeal: ���  cuts  Garbage rate  kick expected  An inquiry by Aid. Morgan  Thompson about garbage collection taxation caused Sechelt's  Mayor William Swain to volunteer the opinion that he expects  a terrific kick about taxation on  a mill rate basis. Clerk Ted  Rayner said that the general  trend he had noted was that  such a tax was included in the  mill rate. ���  As there were too many imponderables connected with the  problem until the Regional District board has made up its  mind on the type of taxation to  be used, the council decided' to  await the Regional board's decision.  Mayor Swain urged some action be taken on the three lots  set aside for municipal use. An  effort will be made to find some  local person who would do the  clearing.  Council decided' to take out a  $10 associate membership in the  Sunshine Coast Tourist Association. Aid Rodway voted against  this.  THEATRE FACE LIFT  In keeping up appearances  and presenting an attractive exterior, Gibsons Twilight-Theatre  is receiving a face-lifting. Surrounded by scaffolding, the theatre is taking on a new look as  stucco is applied to the outside  walls. Further refurbishing to  the interior is planned at a later date. Meantime it's business  as . usual with Ray and Pam  Boothroyd, theatre managers.  DON'T FORGET  Do not forget the UCW dessert party Friday evening. A  smorgasbord of favorite desserts  with tea and coffee will be available from 7 to 8 p.m. It will  be followed by a talk on The  Dugout by Sid Lane of Vancouver.  sentences for three  young - men, appealed by David  F. Leslie, lawyer, were reduced  in the B.C. Court of Appeal on  March 18.  Joseph Gibson on a charge of  theft of an auto was given one  year definite and two years indefinite. The appeal court reduced this to six months definite  and one year indefinite.  Kenneth West and Leonard  Latham, involved in breaking  and entering Parker's Hardware  store at Sechelt were sentenced  to two years less one day plus  two years indefinite. The appeal  reduced West's sentence to a  two year suspended sentence  plus a $1,000 good behavior bond  Latham's sentence was reduced  to nine months definite and. nine  months indefinite.  The appeal court is reported  to have termed the sentences  imposed by Magistrate Mittlesteadt harsh and excessive and  not suitable for the rehabilitation of the accused.  Sears celebrate  Golden Wedding  Brilliant sunshine and smiling  faces greeted Mr. and Mrs.  John W. H. Sear of Roberts  Creek last Wednesday, when  Miss Ena Harrold honored them ���  at a surprise tea for their 50th  wedding anniversary.  The tea table was centred  with a floral arrangement of.  golden mums, friezias and gold  ribbons and a large 5pth anniversary cake.  Miss Harrold had invited the  members of the Church commit- .  tee and the A.C.W., Mr. and Mrs  Sear being members of both or- .  ^anizations.

He argued the curriculum should be  returned to the people where it belongs instead of being the narrow domain of a special interest group.  In view of the recent brief placed before the district school  board by the Association for Support of Progressive Education,  signed by four interested citizens, his remarks are timely. However he does not place the (blame on school boards for the present  situation. '  To quote his press release here is his opinion on the situation:  "The present condition in which a rather anonymous selection of  teachers, university people and departmental officials plan quietly  and privately to work their collective will on the public is the  natural outcome of the defensive position of the civil service and  does not represent the effective expression of the wishes of the  community.".  . Continuing Mr. Campbell said: "I find interesting the increasing, militant demands from the rank and file of the teachers that  they be involved in the decision making process. I interpret this  as both an indictment of the-system and an indictment of those  teachers making decisions now. The interesting thing is that the  wrath of the militants is turned on the school boards, who have  beeriinsulated by the system from any real role in these decisions."  Mr. Campbell complained'that there was no lay voice in establishing the curriculum and that decisions on what is taught as well  as how it is taught are completely in the hands of the teaching  profession. (A complete report on Mr, Campbell's press release  will be found on page one.)  The local Pro^ssiveYEducation Association brief presented to  district school trukees stated that the association believes that  progress in educafem can only come about by a free and continuous dialogue between everyone involved and interested in all phases  of educatiohHru-Jt^s,'^ public.  However such dialogue will only be possible in ah-informal atmosphere of mutual trust, remote from all political implications and  unencumbered by employer-employee relationships.  The brief recommends study groups, which will, research and  report to members all new ideas in the field of education ��� also  discussion groups which will help to select such new ideas which  might be suitaible and desirable for our area and assist in preparing the way for their implementation  To this one can reply that public participation in educational affairs is generally understood from experience to result in minor  donnybrooks which result in the complete breakdown of any form  of communication anyone seeks to achieve. This can hardly be  denied in this school district. Examination oif the size of votes we  expect for the average referendum, despite the amount of money  used to get across the school board message; is another example.  In spite of all this the school iboard, teachers, maintenance staff  and pupils, carry on as best they can.  The brief now in the hands of all school trustees states that:  "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. Our children and their educational requirements should be  first and foremost in the school board's mind."  With this one can agree but ��� the same applies to the municipal councils and the regional district, board. They have the public  foremost in their minds. They also have lurking in the misty background the officialdom of Victoria which even to them works in  its mysterious way to frustrate completely wherever it can.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons Kinsmen club has received word that the Health  Centre will be opened officially  by Hon. Eric Martin on April  23.  The Sunshine Coast Lions club  has requested' Sechelt Council  that it be allowed to take over  the May Day celebration.  Sechelt Rebekah Lodge held a  church parade to Bethel Baptist  church.  Sechelt's council was informed that plans are afoot for tlie  settling at Sechelt of an area  recreation director.  At a recreational meeting in  the Peninsula Hotel one delegate put forth the idea that all  areas pool their Centennial  grant for a community centre.  Other delegates felt co-operation  was not likely.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons council complained to  the department of education  about the reduction of the government school grant from 50  percent to 38.3 percent resulting in a 25 percent increase in  the mill rate levy.  Two hundred boxing fans saw  a six bout program arranged by  the Peninsula Boxing Club at  Gibsons School Hall.  What was advertised as a  beautiful view lot in Giibsons  was listed with a price of $750.  Sechelt's village council has  decided to ask the department  of public works for the installation of a winch and crane on  Porpoise Bay wharf.  20 YEARS AGO  A call for tenders on a $50,000  reconstruction of Sechelt wharf  is reported. There is also a  rock-Mled approach under way  at Roberts Creek.  Herbert Gargrave MLA asked  the government for some further commitment on the completion of the road to Port Mellon.  The new forestry station at  Sechelt is receiving its final  touches before it becomes completed.  A party of young people exploring Mt. Elphinstone discovered on tht south slope a small  settlement of log dwellings used  by draft evaders.  (By CHACK CHACK)  I had watched Jack as he  went aibout testing this or that  bit of my work on my new 12-  ton yawl. At last he came to  where I was finishing up something before the tide was high  enough for us to move out of  the Creek moujjh. This was to be  my first test of my own labor  for we were aboard Chack  Chack No. 1, though she had. no  name at that time.  Jack had told me he knew  nothing about such a small sailboat. He was, as my own father, of the full rigged ship ���  that piece of the best labor of  man. I had hoisted the three  sails.  "Are you going to try to sail  out from here?"  "I've not got tihe engine ready  yet but I believe she may get us  out." The gulf-was well splashed with white for the west wind  had not gone with the sun which  wasn't quite re,ady to leave the  gulf clear for night to make its  landing. The west shore with its  timber sheltered us from this  wind... Just, enough puffs came  around the point to move. Jack,  with the long pole, had helped  to keep us close to the west  shore. One last push and he had  us1 clear and the sails filled.  With a jump the boat went  ahead. The jib sheet caught on  the anchor winch. We felt two  light bumps as we went over  the south bar. I put the wheel  to starboard and went to clear  the jib sheet. Coming back over  the cabin top my toe caught and  I turned over but landed beside  Jack with my hands on the  wheel.  "Well, you sure did something but my eye wasn't quick  enough to catch it! What happened?" asked a surprised Jack.  "Oh, nothing much. I just got  ahead of myself coming back:  You helped by keeping clear of  me," I assured him.  We were clear of the land and  going fast and the boat taking  it, as Jack said, "like a real  ship." Then he asked me "Are  you glad now about the rocks  under the cabin floor?"  "Well, of course, we hadn't  sailed before you set them  there," I replied, a little evasively.  "But do you feel she would  stand this without ballast?"  "The old Spray and Slocum  only had the usual old junk such  single - handers always had  aboard."  "Yes, that's right," said Jack  thoughtfully.  We had run a mile off shore  when I brought her up into the  ' wind to come about for the run  back. But she failed. I tried  again and failed. Then we found  the metal ring which held the  mainstays had worked down  and the stays were slack. Finally we went round with a gybe.  But I realized too, the boat was  sluggish and something was  wrong so got Jack to look  around. He found water on the  cabin floor, lifted the boards and  started bailing which he kept up  till we reached shore, where his  home was at this time. He rowed away after I had assured him  I could manajge alone.  This I did, but not as Jack  would have liked. I sailed on  around Gower Point out of the  wind and dumped all of the  round stones (about the size of  Jack's two fists) from the bilge*  overboard and got the water  out. This had come in by my forgetting to plug a hole at the  transom which was above the  vwater line, at rest. In the lea of  Gower Point I dropped anchor.  By the time I was ready to  move again I'd sent every stone  through the open window. Jack  must have set two or three tons  of rock down there. The round,  washed stones from the creek  bed had been set in so carefully and snugly they couldn't  move ��� tight between keel and  planking and the cabin floor  timbers and the floor. He had  i^^ne thi^ sp well I felt badly un-  Yfdbihg his good work but I knew  ' my boat.was not a deep-keeled,  blue;. water ship.  With the off-shore wind and a  settled sea I had been sitting  easy and I mean easy, for the  boat was slipping along almost  as if at resit. We had' gotten  about half a mile around the  poinit when, fortunately, I looked back and saw the dinghy  with the dog in it had)c gone  adrift. I put the wheel hard  over and headed back, came  alongside, grabbed the bow line  and watched Buster jump  aboard. That joib couldn't have  been done better by any boat  float and I felt proud of my  ship.  Buster sat beside me as we  passed the different landmarks.  There was-no light, so Jack had  gone to bed after his first small  sailboat sailing lesson. There  were a few people about the  dock-head. They had seen the  boat coming and ready hands  took the line asi she came alongside.  "Was this landing by the wind  or engine?" asked a gentleman  I had never seen before.  "Well, sir, as the engine is  not yet.in shape to run it must  have been other than that, and  as I've seen no under-water  maidens about here, I guess it  was by wind."  "Then you must be Roberts  Creek Harry, himself."  "May be so. Would you care  to come aboard?" I asked, and  so I met Commander Maud of  the Gulf Islands. He was staying with friends and had heard  something about R.C.H.  'Sometime aifter this he set out  with his own small' rig as a single hander, got some five or six  hundred miles south but was  forced to return because of eye  trouble. His ship was under the  30 foot length.  He gave me a hand to make  my boat safe for the night; then  we walked ashore; then came  that "goodnight, sir," from each  as we went our separate ways.  It was some time later that I  had Jack aboard again. This  time the boat behaved well. He  was/ aibout to leave me when he  said, "Any time you need a  hand for the South Seas just let  me know. Yes, I really mean it,  for no boat could do better no  matter whose hand was at tihe  helm."  Jack's last bit of work with  which he gave me a hand (years  later) is just above my head as  I sit here at Sunray, Nelson Island ��� the  seven log rafters  which hold up this,part of the  roof. ' Y  '���������'"  "Well, now that this is done  and you have no more log work,  I'll be getting on my way, for  as you know, there is always  something waiting for the likes  of us to do." Next morning, with  his bit of sail full of west wind,^  I watched it grow smaller arid*  smaller as he made for Weir  came Pass, and this was the last  time I saw Jack Charman. The  Blue Water, Sailor had headed  for HOME ��� Gibsons.  NEED A  PASSPORT  PHOTO?

The Board's  statement "He made four premises" allows residents to think  for example, that it was I who  maintained that sections A-D  (operating sections) of the 1068  budget were overspent by $275,-  260. This is not correct. My  statement read "Available information shows that over-expenditure in sections A-D (operating sections) of the 1968 budget totalled only $19,430."  The school board press release  states "the many errors show  Mr. Bell's lack of understanding  of the fundamental�� at stake  and his failure to check his  facts and sources of information." Is it possible that the  board is basing its rebuttal upon  emotion and not upon rational  analysis of the statements I have  made? I: make this query after  reading the March -3 Newsletter published by the Board of  School Trustees for study of this  newsletter will reveal that the  budget figures given for 1968 are  incomplete and do not balance.  ���John C.

PB-17  Editor: Taxpayers of this province: got your school assessment yet? "Whopping, isn't it?  Wait until you get your tax bill.  You'll foe jumping up and dawn.  In your anger don'ft shoot the  school board. Like the legendary  piano player they're doing the  best they can.  Direct your ire instead to the  provincial government. Through  an involved formula deliberaite-  ly made so complicated that Mr.  and Mt��. Average B.C. won't  understand it, the provincial  government collects your education tax dollar, socks it into a  bank account and then tells the  school boardis to go dig another  one out of you.  Then once a year, like Jack  Hornier, the Finance Minister  (W. A. C. Bennett) pulls out a  plum in the form of a gigantic  surplus, in tihe most recent case,  $27 million. This particular plum  includes $6 million appropriated  for education that -went unspent  last year while mobile class*-  rooms dotted schoolyards all  over the- province, kids were  drowning in seas of schoolyard  mud, and mothers were going  squirrelly trying to cope with  all kinds of meals at ungodly  hours due to shifts. The year  before nearly $12 million of education funds were thrown back  into the surplus kitty.  Through this cost-share formula the government gives t  minimum grant to the school  districts and tells them that if  they want any more, they'll have  to raise it themselves through  an additional levy on the property taxes. In order to give  your kids a half decent education, the school boards have no  choice.  And this, dear taxpayers, is  the Whole point. The school  boards become the villains' in  the piece, not the provincial  government, which is exactly  what was intended by this clever formula!  The upshot is that you are  paying twice for the same service, education. Once to the  provincial government and then  again to the school boards.  This is a unique form of double   taxation,   two   very   dirty  words in my book.  ���Phyllis Young.  Airport weather  Letters received by both Sechelt and Gibsons municipal  councils from Dick Kennett,  Gibsons weatherman, suggesting  there should be an airport meteorological' station at Wilson  Creek, were considered at the  respective meetings of both  councils.  Their decision was to turn  the matter over to the Gibsons-  Sedhe.lt Municipal Airport management committee for its consideration. Mr. Kennett in his  letter maintained that weather ���  conditions at the airport come  from Georgia Strait and could  vary with conditions at Gibsons.  Pender Harbor St. Mary's  Hospital auxiliary at its March  12 meeting in Madeira Park Legion hall, with President Mrs.  O. Sladey in the chair, decided  to hold a wine and cheese party  Sat., April 2��, and possibly a  plant sale in May,, a fishing derby in July and a carnival and  fall fair on Oct. 25.  The meeting approved1 the offering of the auxiliary's support  towards establishment of a recreation centre on the Sunshine  Coast. Mrs. G. Gooldrup provided a report on the activities  of the Co-ordinating council and  Mrs. R.. Deane reported a need  for volunteer shoppers at the  hospital.  The Thrift Shop report by  Mrs. Brown suggested that articles could be left with her. Reports on publicity, Sunshine and  Blessing Jans and novelties  were made by Mrs. G. Wolfert,  Mrs. R. Course and Mrs. ft  Alexander. Mrs. Alexander urged that members with left-over  wool, old nylons, lingerie or  scraps of material, to save them  for her novelties.  Members voted to buying  needed, hospital equipment and  Mrs. Warden outlined the objectives of St. Mary's Hospital Society   which   holds   its   annual  meeting on April 21. In order to  vote at that meeting members  must be signed up by March 21.  Membership cards can be obtained' from Mrs. Gilbert Lee at  $2 per member. Mrs. W.

Rodeo in April  The wild, wild west comes to  Vancouver April 8-13 when the  world's top cowboys compete in  the first annual Pacific Coliseum Rodeo.  The six-day show, first of its  krnd in the Coliseum, will' feature 300 head of stock supplied  by -Rosemary, Alta., rancher  Reg Kesler. World champion  cowboys will come from all over  Canada and the United States  to compete in the five major  events of rodeo,bucking horse  with saddle, bucking horse bareback, Brahma bull riding, calf  roping and steer wrestling.

I filed a claim for Un-  employment Insurance about a  year ago and later commenced  a training course paid for with  living allowance by Canada  Manpower Centre. The course  is completed and I have filed  a renewal claim. I have not  worked since last September.  Will I requalify; when my present claim runs but?  A. The Training Allowance  act provides that a claimant's  regular benefit period can be  extended beyond the normal 52  weeks  by the  period that the  claimant was attending a course  of instruction and in receipt of  a training allowance paid by  Canada Manpower Division.  Your present claim should be  extended automatically providing a balance of entitlement remains on your claim. If you  have exhausted your benefit entitlement on your claim filed  a year ago, the period of training for which you were paid  a training allowance may be  used to assist you in requalify-  ing by applying for an extension of the qualifying period.

Portfolio  Another week Of the third session of the 28th legislature has  just- concluded and it has been  a busy week which has included  four night sittingB in addition to  the five day sittings.  Select standing committees  have been hard at work each  morning j hearing the remaining  briefs and in some cases, finalizing reports. The special committee on automobile insurance,  of which I was _a member, has  submitted its report to the  house and we are now waiting  for legislation to be brought in  as a result of the report.  The forestry committee, of  Ywhich I am secretary, heard  our final briefs which were presented: by the B.C. Truck Loggers, Independent Log Haulers,  Prince George Truck Loggers,  Independent Squamish Truckers,  Cariboo Lumber Manufacturers,  Canadian Forest Industries, and  B.C. Federation of Labor. This  has been an interesting committee, which dealt with' problems  facing forestry in areas of slash'  burning, fire fighting, grazing,  wildlife, recreation, mining, and  the 30%-50% clause for contractors. '������������.  One of the highlights of this  week has been the opportunity  to  welcome to  the  legislature-  students from Ocean Falls, Bella  Coola,   Stillwater   and   Kleena  Kleene. The parents1 of .the students have reason to be proud  of   their   sons   and  daughters,  whose enthusiasm and good behaviour was commented upon by  a number of people. I felt a little special pride in the boys and  girls from Stillwater, along with  their teachers, because hot only  had   they   and   their   families  worked so hard to bring about  this  trip, but they were  from  families whom I had the privilege of serving on my mail run  for a goodly number of years.  It  is  my  earnest hope  that  other schools in the years ahead  will   follow   these  students   by  visits- to Victoria. It is important : to   good   citizenship   that  young people observe the legislature in action. I also congratulate the principal and teachers for their efforts in this: regard, for it is indeed a great  responsibility   to   bring   large  groups such1 as these for suoh  a trip. And so, to all who helped or took part in this trip and  the  other  trips  to Victoria  ���  congratulations'! .,  Monday, the last group from  the Powell River area visited  the legislature, and they were  members from the local Air Cade ttes.  When will this legislature be  prorogued? Well, from where I  sit, I would say around April 2  or 3.  The American alligator, a  .species seen at the Vancouver  Public Aquarium, has been  known to stay underwater for  five hours without any ill effects.  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Several diifficult question��  have been received involving  when a child may be sued for  damaging another's person or  property and whether or not the  child's parents are liable.  A more accurate legal term  than child is minor which means  anyone under 21 years of age.  The questions involve torts co_n-  mitted by minors'. A tort is a  civil wrong other than one arising out of contract, for example,  trespass, assault, defamation of  character, injuries caused by  negligence, etc. The car accident is probably the commonest  tort today.  Such questions must be answered by looking to how similar cases have been decided in  the past and there is a great  scarcity of such cases. Doubtless this is due to the fact that  children are seldom sued' because few would have any assets or means to satisfy a judgment.  In general it. may be said  that a minor is liable for torts,  such as trespass, which are a  breach of the peace, or for  wrongful interference with or  detention of the goods of another. An infant can usually be  sued' for torts which contain a  mental element like malice or  negligence only if he was* old  enough to know better. A 17-  year-old has been held liable for  defamation.  A 5-year-old who accidentally  injured another of the same age  Bunny Buses  Easter project  The British Columbia Society  for Crippled Children was organized and incorporated by  Vancouver Lions Clubs in 1952,  and is now. supported by 78  Lions clubs and affiliates  throughout the entire province.  The society provides and oper- *  ates 26 Easter Seal buses, formerly known as Bunny Buses,  which serve Greater Vancouver,  Burnaby, Richmond, Kelowna,  Victoria, Mission and Prince  George; and financially assists  in the transportation of crippled  children in Port Kells, Port  Moody, Port coquitlam, Coquit-  lam, Burquitlam, Cloverdale,  Langley, White Rock, New Westminster, Surrey arid Delta, and  hopefully, someday, every city  in the province.  In Vancouver alone there are  over 600 handicapped children  and adults using the Easter Seal  buses. Several of the buses are  specially equipped to handle  wheelchair Cases. Starting as  early as 7:15 a.m., and finishing  as late as 5 p.m., the Easter  Seal bus drivers transport these  children and adults to 36 schools  for special classes', training and  rehabilitation.  The Easter Seal bus transportation system) is supported by  the annual Easter Seal campaign, so when you receive your  Easter Seals this year, won't  you please give generously?  Copyright applied foi  in play was held not to have  reached that stage of mental development where he was legally  responsible for his negligent  acts. A 16-year-old has on the  other hand been held liable for  accidentally shooting a person  with an air rifle, while larking  about. Of course minors driving  cars are liable for injuries caused by collisions.  Parents are not generally li:  able for their children's torts.  An exception occurs where the  minor is employed by the parent, and the tort is eominitted  by the minor in the course of  employment. The parent is li-  able_ in the same manner as if  the tort had been committed by  an adult employee ��� for ex-.  ample, a customer injured in a  store caused by dangerous -situations' on the premises created  by the minor.  A second exception to the general rule occurs where the  child's tort was1 due to the negligent control of the child in  respect of the act which caused  the injury. In one case, a father  gave his 15-year-old' boy an air  gun and the boy smiashed a  neighbor's window with it land  the father allowed the boy to  continue to use it and another  boy's eye was injured by the  continued use. In a similar case  a 13-year-old boy was told by  his father not to use an air rifle  but did so and injured! another.  The father was held not to be  liable..  In summary ��� parents are  very seldom* liable for their children's torts but this subject is  a tricky one and for individual  problems . a lawyer; should "be  consulted.

Telegrams  were received' from the Hon.  Isabel Dawson and Paul St.  Pierre, M.P.; letters came^from  the Archbishop of New Westminster, Archdeacon Swanson of  Calgary and Principal1 Ramsay  Armitage of the Diocese of Toronto telling of the great work of  Canon Greene during 56 years'  of church ministry with a very  special note of his war service  during the First World War.
