British Columbia  Teachers' Federation was at-;.  0 tended by Dale Franklin, Malcolm Mactavish and Gene Yablonski, delegates from the Sechelt Teachers association.  The  convention   opened  with  President   Hutchison's'   address .  which   set   a   professional   and  inspirational tone on many key'  issues of education.       '''  Referring to the education report, Involvement, he said that  normally those who commission  a report have the direct power  to commission it. We hope, he,  said, to Tniove from, the back  seat to the front and si-ice we  are all learning; we don't mind  duar controls. '    v  On education finance: with  this formula we have taken a  giant step backwards. We have ,  a formula which looks to average practice ahd which takes as  its justification,, equalization of  educational opportunity and  holding down costs. /We have  quarrelled with the averaging  principle. From Belmont Park  which has the lowest per pupil  cost, to Chilcotin, the, highest,  there is a difference of $473 per  pupil. How can an average be  struck and; still provide equal  opportunity to quality education.  The Kitimat referendum defeat was brought to the attention of delegates who later  passed a resolution pledging full  financial support to teachers if  they walk off their jobs effec- .  tiire May 1 protesting teacher,  librarian, janitorial service and  teacheryaid 7euts7!

Many resolutions and recommendations passed; by the delegates reflected the concern of  teachers that their professional  ideals are always mindful of the  student in their care. The feature speaker, Lloyd A. Dennis,  co-chairman.of the Ontario Royal Commission on Education,  complimented the BCTF on the  publication of the three man  commission report Involvement  which could be referred to as  an educational ideal;  Mr. Dennis criticized some of  the traditional authoritarian aspects of teachers and placed  emphasis on the self-discipline  ideals. Teachers, he said, should  concentrate on the opportunity  they have to instil a sense of  freedom, creativity and imagination in young people.  Copies of Involvement, published by the Teachers Federation, are available locally  through any member of the Sechelt Teachers Association on  loan or it can be purchased from  the B.C. Teachers Federation office in Vancouver. ,  There is likely to be a slight  drop in the school board mill  rate for this year according to  early reports, Last year the  rate was 34.98. and this year it  is likely to be 33.83, a drop of  Lis. ; .  Now that the provincial government finance department has  announced the calculation) of  grants (see More School Financing on page 3) school boards  have been able to set this year's  mild rate.

RELIEF FUND, ANYONE!  Anyone interested in contributing to a relief fund for those  who suffered considerable loss  in the big Trail flood of last  week?  There is a Gibsons donor who  is willing to make a contribution provided there are others  willing to make their donation.  Some 100 women from various  churches in the area Gibsons  to Powell River attended a  UCW luncheon in Gibsons United Church hall, April 24 at  which there were 12 from the  7 Anglican church, five from the  Catholic church;, five from  ��� Pentecostal -churchY 'eight from ���  Wilson Creek United church  ," and ��� nine from Roberts Creek  Uniitied church plus 21 from  Powell River United churches.  Gibsons UCW were, hosts and  tables and decorations expressed a Chinese theme including  attractive hand-painted oriental  looking place cards. Inside were  written various Chinese proverbs. The painting on them was  the work of Miss Hilda Hinder  and drew many appreciative remarks.  Following the buffet luncheon-  Mrs. Kay Moore, president of  Gibsons UCW welcomed the  guests and introduced the head  table which included Rev.  David Wen. Kev. and Mrs. M.  Cameron, Rev. D. Morgan and  Mrs. E. Vernon, leader of the  Gower Point unit which planned  the luncheon.  A brief devotional period was  led by Mrs. Vernon. Mrs.. Hilda  Lee provided  a solo,   It  is No  Secret.  The offering  from this  meeting goes to the church Missionary and Maintenance fund.  . The meeting was then turned  over  to  Rev.  Mr.  Wen- of  the  Chinese United church in Vancouver.     Born     and raised in  China   he   left   there   some   20  years     ago.    He    summai{ized  briefly     Chinese     history back  some 5,000 years, the rise of the  Chinese  empire  from  an  unorganized    primitive    prehistoric  culture   to   a  consolidated   and  well-organized nation.  The age  of dynasties followed then contact with the western world resulted  in   numerous   wars   and  finally ai democracy when the  Chinese   Republic   was  formed  on Jan. 1, 1912.  Foreign governments continued to try and control China  which resulted an the formation  of     the    Chinese     Communist  NO FALL FAIR  Owing to lack of interest in  developing a fall- fair for this  year, the Sunshine Coast Fall  Fair committee has disbanded.

He closed his talk with some  fairly recent slides taken in  Shanghai,   Canton   and' Peking.  Mrs. Smith, president of the  Powell River UCW thanked the  speaker for his interesting picture of China yesterday and today.  Among those attending from  Roberts Creek were Mrs. R.  Leask, Mrs. C.

AN OSLER STAMP  Sir William Osier, Bart., M.D.,  a native of Bond Head, Ontario,  who achieved world recognition  as a medical teacher and as one  of the finest diagnosticians of  his day, will be commemorated  on a 6c Canada post office  stamp to be issued on June 23.  Following Mayor Fred Fee-  ney's objection to the provincial  authorities detailing where council should spend its government  grants and backed by similar  comments from aldermen, Gibsons council at Tuesday night's  meeting decided to table a letter of instruction from the finance department of the provincial government for further consideration.  The letter explaied that the  extra three dollars per population ; added to the municipal  grant .was to be spent in this  -ri-annef: $1 towards ambulance  service, $1 on tourism and the  remaining dollar on industrial  development.  Mayor Feeney's attitude was  that the council was receiving-  money to which it was entitled  , yet the provincial;government  ',.������ comes ;i sdongil and;; fells,, it ^just  what to do wi-hitY:::' "'r���'"'"*'''"'"'".'  The letter also referred to the  fact that council was supposed  to make a separate statement at  the end of the year on the specific use of the extra $3 per person added to the regular grant-  None of the aldermen looked on  the idea favorably and their expectation is that other municipalities will protest the mandatory attitude of the finance department.  Council also decided it would .  have to do something on a long  term basis year by year on Gib-,  sons parking problems and will  consider  placing   something   in  the five year capital works bud--  get in  order to  cope with  the  situation.   Mayor   Feeney   said  the problem' would have  to be [  considered   seriously  andr costs  must be reasonable but council  must come up with an answer.  Gibsons   Athletic   Association  advised council it would be prepared to supply $510 dollars towards"   completing     the     new  floats at the Municipal Beach. .  Council will supply $600 towards  completion of a three-float setup for swimming purposes.  TWO MEMBERS of the Gibsons Seaforth Highlanders militia unit  are going on to regular army careers. They are Dave Henderson,  left, who is heading for the transport section, and Jim Mullen, who  is looking towards becoming a weapons technician. Both will be  initially going into the infantry. Formula covering financing of education  HON. ISABEL DAWSON  Minister without Portfolio  The Education Finance Formula has been the object of much  discussion recently, and there  has been some suggestion that  it was implemented without  warning.  Mr. Peterson, as far back as  1961, advised boards of school  trustees concerning rising costs  of education that the govren-  ment would not subsidize excess costs in any way.  Our government has given top  priority to education, and its  budget of $325,274,000 indicates  that we are at this time spending almost a million dollars a  day.  The government, on behalf of  the taxpayer, is insisting that  the taxpayer gets good value  for his dollar. This is being  done in several ways:  Considering the payments by  the province on behalf of boards  of school trustees for teachers'  superannuation, free textbooks,  etc.,  as well as direct  grants  paid   to   school   districts,   plus  the Home-Owner.grants paid to  residential property owners  so  that the burden of local school  taxes might be eased, the government paid 60% of elementary  and secondary education costs.  And, this  same   percentage   of  costs will be paid by the province in 1969. The 40% paid by  direct   local   school   taxes   will  be shared in bulk by business  and  industry,  leaving   residential property owners some 9%  share in.the total cost.  During 1953 the government  brought in .the Assessment  Equalization Act which meant  that school districts are similarly assessed in every part of the  province.  From 1958 to 1961 the government policy was -to pay 50%  of the operating costs of education, and school boards were  at liberty to spend whatever  they wished while the government paid half the cost. It will  be obvious to many people that  this policy did not act as an incentive toward economy or efficiency at local levels.  This policy came under fire  because it was difficult to avoid  subsidizing unnecessary expense  when paying supplementary  grants.  These are the reasons the  government is abandoning the  policy of sharing in unapproved  UIC problems  When I started working as  receptionist for the British Columbia Government, I was told  we were to get stamps for the  first six months. But I was  charged for three months and  then they changed over to  superannuation instead. Should  I not have got at least the three  months I paid for? Also, I quit  before my six months were up  because of transportation problems. Should this not entitle me  to the full five months stamps?  t never got any stamps at all  for working the five months.  A. If after your first three  months in provincial government service, your status was  changed from that of temporary  to permanent public servant,  this may be the reason why contributions ceased to be made  on your behalf.  ; In such case contributions are  not returnable. If you now take  up insurable employment, the  contributions already made for  you would count towards the  establishment of a benefit qualification. If contributions were  deducted for a three month  period but no stamps have been  placed in your book, you should  take this up with your former  employer.  GROUNDED  GEESE  For a period of perhaps six  weeks during the summer adult  Canada Geese are incapable of  flight, owing to the moulting  of their wing-feathers. At such  times they become much less  obvious on the nesting-ground,  sulking in the marsh and brush  where they rarely are seen..  By the time the adults, and the  yearly birds that do not breed,  have moulted, most of the  young are strong on the wing.  costs. From now on ��� only approved costs will be considered:  In 1968, the new Educational  Formula was devised and it is  designed to accomplish three  things ��� these are:  1. to ensure that every pupil  in every part of the province  has every opportunity to obtain  the finest education possible;  2. to encourage boards of  school trustees to practice efficiency and economy and provide the maximum value for  every educational tax dollar  spent;  3. to protect the local taxpay  er breach ^school district since  he pays the full cost of any  expensive features and services  the board wishes to provide.  The design of the formula is  such that the cost of the basic  program is related as closely  as possible to the actual operational costs. Boards are' made  aware of the amount of the  basic program and can prepare  their budgets accordingly.  Rise in prices, and increased  enrolment are provided for.  School boards can spend up to  10% above the basic program  without approval by anyone.  However, if districts fash to  spend more than 110% of the  basic program, they must justify their actions and obtain approval of ���municipalities of taxpayers.  In spite of a critical money  market, 860 classrooms were  constructed in the last calendar  year ��� and this representjs  more than four classrooms for  every day of the school year.  The government has extended  the $16,000 and $22,500 limit (per  classroom) placed, on school  construction last year, to include    washrooms, administra  tive areas, .etc., to establish  maximum shareable cost. Assuming continued cost control,  applications 7 to proceed with  gymnasiums and (activity rooms  will be processed after ApriL  There, has been a suggestion  that the 85 school districts in  the province ��� concern themselves with a study on possible  amalgamation.  The cost of education is growing at an alarming rate ��� not  just in our province, but in  other provinces. In 1952 education cost approximately;,11.4^  of the provincial budget, while  2      Coast News, April 30, 1969.  in the present budget, 31.8% of  the budget is earmarked in this  area.  Our government is proud of  the fact that it has been bringing down balanced budgets  since 1952 and has provided essential services within its means  at a time when other provinces  face serious financial difficulties.  At the recent. B.C. Teacher's  convention in Vancouver, the  point was raised that the formula" was a new implementation  and it was suggested that it be  given a trial. Let's give it a  itrial ��� it was designed with  you, the taxpayer in mind.  The people of British Columbia are invited to participate in  Festival of Sp  May 18-30,1970  The feats of Nancy Greene, Elaine Tanner,  Harry Jerome, Ralph Hutton, Debbie Brill,  Karen Magnussen, and many others in the  field of individual athletics in recent years have  thrilled every British Columbian. Nineteen Canadian Champions and three World Record holders  come from our Province. Our rowers and other  teams of young people on playing fields and courts  far from home have been an inspiration to us all.  This year, your government has announced a  broad program to encourage British Columbians in  all forms of sport activity. As part of this program  the Department of Travel Industry has been  charged with helping to organize and promote "The  British Columbia Festival of. Sports", an annual  event which I hope will gain participation in every  community of the province and become a great  source of encouragement to the youth of British  Columbia.  The time period chosen for the Festival, ranging  between our "Victoria Day" weekend and the U.S.  "Memorial Day", was selected initially because it  included or was adjacent to the broadest spectrum  of athletic activity.  The importance of this event to the visitor industry in every region of the province is vital as well.  I hope that fans and families of athletes will take the  opportunity to visit communities throughout the  province, make new friends, enjoy the fine recreational facilities and see first hand the great developments in the province. I hope, too, that these communities, will help give the Festival international  stature, these Festival events, falling in advance of  the peak of our visitor season, will receive major  promotion by the Department of Travel Industry in  nearby states and provinces.  You are invited, through your constituted municipal and regional  organizations  and  through  the British Columbia Sports  Federation and the British  Columbia Recreation Association, to plan and participate in  this great province-wide event.  Honorary President,  The British/Columbia Festival oi Sports  The British Columbia Festival of Sports  is to be organized at the community level.  1$. is estimated that there are more than  seventy communities in the province, in  the eight tourist regions, which are capable of staging one or more sports tournaments and related events.  A Directorate and Selection Committee  will be made up of representatives of the  British Columbia Sports Federation, the  Provincial Government, the Provincial  Tourist Advisory Council and other segments of our population. This committee  will arrange with interested communities  and the province-wide amateur Sports  Associations to allocate events equitably  throughout the province.  The Festival is primarily interested in  promoting amateur athletics, but professional and semi-professional organizations will be encouraged to stage events  at the same time and thus benefit from the  British Columbia Government promotion.  Cities that already have historic pageants, carnivals, parades and similar  events during the summer months will be  encouraged to stage some parts of their  program at this earlier time in order to  gain additional benefits from the "offseason" promotion.  Athletics in British Columbia  The following sports are organized into  the British Columbia Sports Federation.  Federation members have been asked to  submit proposals for their sports on a  provincial basis.  Archery ��� Badminton ��� Baseball ��� Basketball ��� Bowling, 5 & 10 pin ��� Boxing ��� Camping ��� Canoeing ��� Cricket ��� Curling ��� Cycling  ��� Fencing ��� Field Hockey ��� Figure Skating ���  Football ��� Golf ��� Gymkhanas ��� Gymnastics  ��� Handball ��� Hard Court Tennis ��� Ice  Hockey ��� Judo ��� Lacrosse ��� Lawn Bowling  ��� Lawn Tennis ��� Life Saving ��� Marksmanship ��� Parapalegic Sports ��� Rowing ��� Rugby  ��� Skiing ��� Soccer ��� Softball ��� Speed Skating  ��� Swimming and Diving ��� Synchronized  Swimming ��� Table Tennis ��� Track & Field,  Indoor ��� Track & Field, Outdoor ��� Volleyball ��� Water Polo ��� Water Skiing ��� Weight-  lifting ��� Wrestling ��� Yachting.  Other sports which  should be considered although not presently members  of the Federation are:  Auto  Rallies  ���  Bird  Watching  ���  Dune  buggies ��� Falconry ��� Fishing Derbies ���  Frost Bite Races ��� Logger Sports ��� Marathon Swimming ��� Mountaineering ��� Predicted Log Powerboat Races ��� Rodeos &  Stampedes ��� SCUBA & Skin Diving ��� Skeet  ' Shooting ��� Sky Diving ��� Soaring ��� Speedboat Races ��� Sports Car Races ��� Squash ���  Surfing ��� Trail Riding.  How your community can  participate in the British  Columbia Festival of Sports  Written submissions are being requested from municipal councils and/or  whatever group (Chamber of Commerce,  School Board, Fair or Rodeo Committee,  Athletic Association, etc.) is designated to  be the constituted body representing the  community. These submissions are requested on or before Monday, June 23,  1969, and should be addressed to:  Dr. Robert Hindmarch,  President,  British Columbia Sports Federation;  1336 West Broadway,  Vancouver, British Columbia.  During the summer and early fall, field  representatives of the Selection Committee will then visit your community for further discussion. Announcement of Festival  locations will be made soon afterward.  The written submissions will form a  catalogue of community interests and  facilities with the idea that it will be upgraded in years to come.  These submissions should include:  1. The make-up of your Festival Commit-  . tee' (names, addresses, positions or  particular sports interests).  2. A list of sports facilities that would be  available during the Festival period ...  stadia, arenas, playing fields,, swimming pools, etc. (giving dimensions,  seating capacity and other pertinent  features).  3. A brief statement outlining what sports  events your community has staged in  the past and how you might be prepared to stage an event in conjunction  with members of the British Columbia  Sports Federation. Each event should  be designed to be self-sustaining.  4. An indication of how many extra visitors could be handled in your community and environs during this period.  5. A list of ancillary events that might be  organized in your community during  the Festival:  a. Novelty events  b. Parades, pageants and  extravaganzas  c. Cultural displays, festivals  d. Historical and commemorative  events  6. A" indication of the earliest convenient  dates your committee could meet in  your community with our field representative.  * * *  In order to give regional balance to the  assignment of events, the Directorate of  the British Columbia Festival of Sports  will be made up in.part by one representative from each of the eight constituted  provincial tourist regions. This director  should be selected by the interested communities in conjunction with their respective tourist promotional body:  "A" Vancouver Island and the  Gulf Islands  ���  "b�� Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley,  Sunshine Coast  "C" Okanagan and Similkameen  Valleys  "D" East and West Kootenays  "E" Trans-Canada, Yellowhead and  Nicola Highways  "F" Cariboo-Chilcotin Country  "G" Highway 16 (Prince Rupert to  Alberta)  "H" Peace River and Northern  Districts    ,   ; ,  Names of these'Regional Directors  should be submitted to the Deputy Minister of Travel Industry, Mr. R. B. Worley,  Parliament Buildings, Victoria, by May 30,  1969, by the President of the Regional  Travel organization. Approximately four  directors' meetings will be held during the  year and these directors will receive travel  allowance.  *       *       *  Like our highly successful centennial,  this is a great challenge to British Columbians everywhere. From the interest,'the  healthy environment and the sports facilities developed locally will come the athletic champions of the world.

Back  in 1905 Cliilf ord Sif ton resigned his position as minister of the interior over the education clause in the Autonomy Bills, which incorporated the new provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Clause 16 covered education and did not give the new provinces  the right to legislate on educational matters. Siifton did not like  this. He resigned and this forced the federal government to change  the clause and allow the provinces to legislate their own educational matters.  later, in 1911, Sif ton, as a member of the house of commons,  led 18 other Liberals in a revolt against the Laurier ministry over  the reciprocity issue and his campaign helped defeat Laurier. This  he did in spite of the fact John W. Dafoe, editor of the Sif ton owned Manitoba Free Press, supported the reciprocity issue.  Educational autonomy plus reciprocity were deep issues then.  Just how deeply the housing problem issue will affect the Trudeau  government remains to foe seen. Laurier backed down on educational autonomy for the new provinces but Sif ton helped lick him on  the reciprocity issue. The Trudeau government can back down on  the housing issue and thus provide Mr. Hellyer with an issue for  support of some cabinet ministers and also members of the house.  It is going to be interesting to waitch how Prime Minister Trudeau will handle the situation in view of the fact that his problem  of autonomy between the federal and provincial fields is on the  political block with a Hellyer lurking on the sidelines.  An exchange of views  Discussions on union between the Anglican and United Churches in Canada are continuing in this area and one point which has  been brought up is that the congregations of those churches should  exchange their church magazines and other publications in order  that each side can see what is developing within the various church  organizations.  Joint study groups are being organized across the nation and  one has been formed on the Sunshine Coast. These groups are for  the purpose of discussing all parts of the suggested plan of union.  The general discussion on union will take considerable time  before the issue crystalizes into something put before any type of  commission for action. A joint commission on Church Union met in  December and one of the problems which received notice was  United Church reservations about bishops and Anglican reservations about intercommunion.  Those who remember events leading up to the. Methodist-  Congregational-Presbyterian'union in 1925 can look forward to  some interesting debate, theological as well as matters that do not  come under theology.  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Co-operative association announced it will build  a $50,000 store next to the Bal  block on Gibsons Marine Drive.  Three garbage sites were  selected by the Garbage Disposal and Collection board after  hearing a report from a fact  finding committee.  Consultations are going on regarding the laying out of the  old United Church property as  a park containing the cemetery.  April was dry and sunny but  cool with 2.54 inches of rain  on nine days and a mean temperature of 45.  Three ratepayers attended a  public school board meeting to  discuss how transportation rates  for school buses can be reduced.    At the second meeting of Sechelt's newly organized fire department team captains were  appointed and practice nights  settled.  10 YEARS AGO  Voters will ballot on a $211,-  000 referendum on May 9 to  acquire sites and add eight  rooms with furnishings ito four  schools in the dstriict.  C. P. Ballentine started clearing off the gravel from th��  land behind his block on Marine  Drive.  A general tightening up of  education in B.C. with better  salaries for all concerned were  among the recommendations  made by the B.C. School Trustees association to the Chant  Royal Commission on Education.  Seventeen persons attended  the first meeting of the Wilson  Creek Archery club. Practice  shoots were arranged on two  nights a week.  20 YEARS AGO  'A school vote for May 28 is  announced to include a high  school for Gibsons, a three  room elementary school with  activity room at Roberts Creek,  an additional two rooms at Sechelt and a six room consolidated school at Madeira Park, to  cost $605,000.  A fine turnout of Kinsmen  and Kinettes at a banquet and  dance honoring charter night  was held in Gibsons with about  30 visitors from Vancouver attending. Alf Whiting was Kinsmen president.  Roberts Creek Parent-Teachers association held an open  house with Mr. J. Jervis as  speaker from England.  Work has started on enlarging the Union Store at Sechelt.  This year the changes in the  education finance formula are  being fully implemented and  over 90% of the total gross  amount budgetted by school  districts for operating expenses  of the public schools is eligible  for grants by the province. The  local contribution to these shareable operating expenses for 1969  has been set at a basic levy of  24.60 mills, only three-tenths of  a mill higher than the levy of  24.30 mills   set for  1968.  Also, starting this year, the  provincial government is paying  60% of the total of the school  districts' college costs instead  of 50% of the net costs as previously paid. With additional  new colleges commencing to  operate/and increased costs of  existing colleges, this increase  in grants by the province materially reduces the burden of  taxes upon the  local taxpayer.  In addition to the very substantial increases in grants to  the school districts, the provincial government .has increased  the home owner grant from $130  to $150 to further reduce the  burden upon the local taxpayer.  As a result of this overall increased assistance by the government, the majority of residential property-owners in the  province will find themselves  having to pay no more school  taxes in 1969 than they paid  in 1968.  The calculation of grants to  school districts under the education finance formula and in-  creaseed grants for colleges  will result in an average increase of only .34 mills across  the province and, because of  the increase in the home owner  grant, the vast majority of residential property-owners would  have a reduction in local school  taxes for 1969, Hon .O. T_.  Brothers, minister of 'education  announces.  The 1968 overall average-mill  rate on a province-wide basis  for elementary, and secondary  schools and for colleges was  31.38-mills. .For 1969, the overall average mill rate on the  same basis and for the same  purpose is 31.72 mills. The mill,  rate for the district covering  the Sunshine Coast was 34.98  in 1968 and it is expected to.be  33.83 for this year. "  The provincial government has  provided $141,000,000 for direct  grants to school districts for  elementary and secondary  schools, an increase of $21,000.-  000, or 17.5% over the amount  voted last year. In addition to  this amount, the government  has provided $5,920,000 on behalf  of school districts for teachers'  superannuation and $6,350,000  for college grants to school districts. Also, to reduce local  schoo taxes on residential property-owners the government  has increased the home owner  grant from $130 to $150 and  provded $50,000,000 .for this purpose. These combined figures  make a total of $203,270,000 in  grants and payments for the  school districts' education costs,  as against $98,827,000 five years  ago.  Mr. Brothers pointed out that  in spite of the enormous overall increase in school district  budgets for 1969, and without  taking into consideration the  home owner grant, the increase .  in local mill rates are extremely nominal. The minor increase  of only .34 mils in the province-  wide average mill rate for 1969  is positive indication, the minister said, of the increased financial assistance being given  by the government to the school  districts for the public schools  and colleges.  Commenting on the mill rates  in individual districts, Mr.  Brothers stated that of the 85  school districts, 49 districts will  have a lower mill rate in 1969  than in 1968, another 32 districts  will have an increase of only up  to 2 mills, and the remaining  13 districts will have increases  of over 2 mills. These variations  in increases of local mill rates  are of course dependent upon  how much the individual school  districts have budgetted for expenses in excess of the amounts  eligible for provincial grants.  Mr. Brothers concluded by  saying that, in spite of criticisms  being made, the new education  finance formula does provide  a more equitable distribution of  greater government financial  aid to school districts throughout the province. This coupled  with the government paying 60%  of college expenses ensures the  provision of the finest educational opportunity- possible to  every pupil and student regardless of the local financial wealth  $10,000,000 machine  A revolutionary new newsprint  machine is being installed at the  Powell River Division of- MacMillan Bloedel Limited at a cost  of $10,000,000, Hon. J. V. dyne,  chairman and chief executive officer of MB announces.  Developed after 11 years research, the new machine is the  first of its kind to go into production in western North,America. Erection of the machine  is now underway, it is expected  to start up late in I960, and to  enter regular production in early  1970.  The key to the new concept in  the manufacture of newsprint is  a technique known as Verti-  Forma. For more than 100  years newsprint has been manufactured by forming the sheet  on a horizontal screen.  The new machine operates as  follows: The raw material, or  stock as it is called, (a combination of kraft pulp and ground-  wood), is fed from a headbox  above the machine downward  between two converging screens  The paper sheet takes form as  the stock ds compressed and as  water is removed by a series.of  deflectors. The paper then  moves on to a conventional  press and drying section.  Both sides' of the newsprint  sheet have an identical surface  and' the sheet structure is more  uniform. The hew technique also  enables faster operation of newsprint, machines.  The new machine will have a  width of 224 inches and a speed  of up to 2,500 feet per minute,  depending on grade of newsprint  being produced, but engineers  anticipate that the technique  in the future will enable newsprint machines to operate at unprecedented speeds in excess of  5,000 feet per minute.  of the community in which he  or she resides.  The provincial government  makes total grants and payments to, and on behalf of, the  school districts throughout the  province equal to some 60% of  their total education costs. The  remaining 40% of these costs  is provided by local direct taxes  paid by business, industrial, and  residential property-owners, but  the effect of the provincial  home owner grant payments is  that   the   contribution   by   the  Coast News, April 30, 1969.       3  residential property-owners is  less than 9 % of the total education costs.  The provincial government is  doing'everything possible to assist the local taxpayers in meeting the rising costs of education  by allocating 32% of dts billion  dollar budget for education. But,  said Mr. Brothers, the spending  of these public funds is done  by the local education authorities, and it is their responsibility to make certain that full  value is received for every education tax dollar they spend.

The establishment of'a family practice teaching unit at the  University of British Columbia  will be assisted with the approval .of .a $70,101 contribution  from the federal government's  Health Resources fund.  . The assistance provided by  the fund will aid in .modifying  an area of a building of the  Vancouver General Hospital  housing the unit. Teaching- and  research facilities will be available to accommodate five graduate students, residents and internes, and 60 undergraduate  students per year. Approximate-  15 nurses, four social workers  and a rehabilitation worker will  also be involved each year in  the training program.  The establishment of a family practice unit was proposed  by the University's faculty of  medicine, in recognition of the  essential role of the family  physician in the provision of  health care. The unit wall be  developed and administered by  the faculty's division of primary health care, department of  health  care  and epidemiology.  The purpose of the family  practice unit will be to provide  learning and research experience in a model family prac-;  tice for undergraduate students  in the health sciences, and for  health team personnel after 7  graduation. The unit will demonstrate the provision of  health care by the allied health  professions and their supporting personnel under the leadership of the family physician.  It is alsp proposed that the  unit will intrwiuoe innovations  in family health care based on  advances in the biological, :  psychological, behavioral and  clinical sciences. It will also  engage in epidemiological studies and other research designed to improve the quality of  health care received by families  TWO-DAY O.A.P.

EST.  Terrace garden should be planned  The iterrace or patio garden  is the centre of interest throughout the summer .'and fall. It  should, therefore, be planned  carefully as to location, construction and planting. A well-  placed terrace in harmony with  the house 'has., a-real estate  value far greater than its cost  of construction.  Technically, a terrace garden  as its name suggests is an area  raised above ground level, and  a patio is, (in modern/usage),  an outside area enclosed by  walls, but this doesn't always  follow. Both types are often referred to as patios whereas the  term terrace would-., be more  apt whether the garden be at  the same level as the lawn or  a few steps higher.  An enclosure should be made  with walls, hedges or small,  neat shrubs and outlets leading  from it to open up vistias beyond. The patio need not be  too elaborate but surfaced with  gravel or stone set in sod and  bordered with a simple selection of plants. It should be an  extension of the living, quarters  and a vantage ppoint from which  to view all angles of the garden.  Hedges to enclose the terrace  garden should be small and  slow-growing. The Japanese  Yew or Korean box are two -  suitable evergreens for this purpose. The dwarf snowball, or  Arctic willow will grow taller,  are not too course and lend distinction of foliage to the garden.  In front of the hedge a small  narrow bed is often left. This  should be planted with a small  groundcover such as periwinkle,  Japanese spurge, or bearberry.  Among these plants, set small  flowered spring bulbs such as  Siberian squill, grape hyacinths,  and miniature narcissus where  they are hardy.  When constructing the terrace,  leave spaces for good specimen  plants or group plantings. This-  garden calls for formal exotic  plants some of which may be  planted in tubs and stood in  strategic places. Plants such as  the dwarf Alberta spruce, hostas  and daphnes may be planted  here in groups.  In the tubs grow tender plants  like the blue hydrangeas, English holly or bay laurel. These  must be transferred to the basement for the winter and kept  fairly dry in areas outside the  milder part of British Columbia.  If the terrace is laid on good  sandy soil, small rock plants  may be used for the crevices  between the stones. They add  color and often form mats of  two or three feet in diameter  and will withstand a certain  amount of traffic.  The annual sweet alyssum in  its small compact forms, such  as Carpet of Snow, may be  seeded right into -the crevices.  If the location is hot and sunny  try the annual ice plants and  single or double portulaca.  It is a matter of some dis  cussion whether planting in the  crevices of flagstones or slabs  is desirable or not. True, the  end result if properly carried  out, is interesting and extremely attractive.  The argument against plants  set in flagstones comes mainly  from visitors who feel they have  to tread very carefully to avoid  stepping on them even though  told they will withstand it. Grass  between small flagstones may  be mown with the lawn mower  if the stones have been set in  properly, but it tends to grow  into uneven clumps and looks  weedy. ..-������'  At the other side of the terrace wall or hedge, another  planting must be made. Here  low spreading evergreens intermixed with interesting, neat,  flowering shrubs are advisable.  What could be better in such  a location as the very early  shrubs that flower almost as  "soons as the snow disappears  and when the rest of the garden is  muddy  and dreary?  The lovely, waxy white flowers of the White Mezereon are  usually lost in a shrub border.  But in this location they would  be admired while the snow still  stands on other parts of the  garden.  The Korean golden bells would  give a garden picture of its  own in early spring and the  dwarf Anthony Waterer spirea  with Lemoine's deutzia could  follow later. The terrace garden  usually extends from the kitchen  back door or a porch providing  easy access to these early  shrubs.  Amalgamation  idea rejected  The monthly meeting of the  Port Mellon branch of the auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital,  April 9 at the home of Mrs.  Christiansen with 12 members  present, discussed the -recent  Fashion Show and ways and  means of improving the next  one. It was considered a good  financial success.  A letter from the Gibsons  auxiliary was read asking that  amalgamation with its group be  considered1.. After much discussion it was decided to thank  them for their request but to  maintain the present status at  this time.  The next meeting will ibe held  at the home of Mrs. W. Booth  in Port Mellon on May 13. Visitors or prospective new members will be welcome to attend  the meeting.  The Romans made good  use of their excellent roads by  linking cities with chains of  postas. These were men's  quarters and stables along the  routes of their ancient "pony  express" system.  now necessary  In planning a second group  of senior citizens homes-, it is  necessary that applications be  made for admission in advance  of any building, as the government will not make a loan until  it is convinced1 there is a need.  .Directors of Greene Court are  therefore requesting that any individual or couple who might  consider living in the homes at  any future time, should now present an application. -Many  changes- will occur before any  one is asked to move in but 't  is wise to have your name listed.  A priority'list is kept at all  times.. Application forms may  be obtained from Mrs. Charles  Tinkley, R.R. 1, Halfmoon Bay.  Government regulations do not  permit a couple to live in the  homes if the combined income  is over $300 per mionth. It is to  be noted that this is income, not  cash assets. The rental scale  will likely be. in the neighborhood of $50 to $55 per month single and $70 to $75 double. This  is subject to ratification and acceptance by the government.  Even if the application is never taken up, it is worthwhile to  have it on the file.

Indian  fishermen reveals that two federal government departments  will combine in a resource survey of shrimps in British Columbia's Bella Bella area o the  Coast Chilcotin riding, with the  hope o invoving local Indian  fishermen in the commercial  fishing industry.  The announcement was made  jointly by Fisheries Minister,  Jack Davis and Indian Affairs  Minister, Jean Chretien, dividing the responsibility between  the two. departments. Fisheries  has contracted with Millbanke  Industries Ltd., to outfit five  vessels to find out whether  shrimp exist in commercial  quantities off the Bella Bella  coastal area.  Indian Affairs . have contracted with the same company to  train - at least ten Indian Women and one Indian supervisor  in shrimp .processing.  In addi  tion,  an Indian fisherman  will  accompany each of the vessels  to learn the techniques of modern shrimp trawling.  Depending on the success of  the survey, the numbers of Indians to be trained in this pilot  project could reach as high as  forty.  The survey is being undertaken to offset the effect of a  cannery closure in the central  fishing district of British Columbia. Shrimp caught during  the survey will be processed by  the Millbanke cannery, using  Indian workers.  Operations are scheduled to  begin at the end of April and  will continue for one month.  The Fisheries department also  hopes to diversify the local  fishing industry which has  hitherto been dominated by salmon fishing. The importance of  the project is further emphasized by the forecast of smaller  salmon runs than usual for 1969.

Question ��� A man owns a  vicious dog but keeps it in an  enclosed yard. A gate being  carelessly left open, the dog  escapes and bites a passerby.  Has the injured person a claim?  Answer: Yes. The owner of  the dog must have known of  the dog's vicious propensities:  Assuming that he did, he will  have to pay all doctor's bills,  etc., and a sum for pain and  suffering, loss of wages (if any)  etc.  Q. A cat lover keeps a number of cats in her backyard and  they continually disturb ���^:--*��-  bors by their yowling. What can  the neighbors do?  A. They would have to prove  that the yowling was sufficient  to constitute^ an unreasonable  nuisance. Assuming they can do  so, an injunction prohibiting the  continuation of the nuisance can  be obtained.   An   injunction   is  a court order and if disobeyed  may result in contempt of court  proceedings whereby the person disobeying it can be fined  or imprisoned or both.  Q. A dog owner is taking his  dog for a walk when the animal  suddenly bites another stroller,  causing injury.  A. There is~ an old saying in  law ��� "A dog is entitled to one  bite" ��� If the owner knew the  dbg was not to be trusted he  is liable. If. this was the first  such incident, the owner is not  liable��� but he  will be liable  next time. "���  Q. Cattle trespass on to a  neighbors property and cause  damage.  A. The owner is liable. This  rule is not qualified by the  necessity of prbving the owner  had knowledge of any disposition in the animal to cause the  type of damage in question.  Cattle includes, horses, oxen,  sheep, swine, asses, goato,  geese and ducks. Cats and dogs  are not included in this rule.  Want fo succeed as a gardener?

Hospital Auxiliaries regional convention held in White Rock on Tuesday, April 23, when a chartered  bus load of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliariies' memlbers made the  day trip. Of these, 13 were from  , Sechelt, two from Pender Harbour, 15 from Roberts Creek and  eight from Port Mellon.  The White Rock ladies were  gracious hostesses at the Elks'  Hall, equally skilful in conducting an interesting business meet  ing and serving a delicious noon  meal, as well) as morning coffee on arrival and afternoon tea  later at the Hospital after a  guided.tour.  The hospital seemed to Iaek  nothing in the way of attractive  furnishings and efficient equipment indicating that its many  auxiliaries are on the job,, and  it was noted that the memlbers  were indeed familiar with their  hospital and were accepted as  part of the staff.  More than 200 members of  BCHA attended the convention.  Newcomer to  have art show  The next display at the Arts  Council Gallery in Sechelt will  feature the work of a talented  newcomer to this district, Jim  Jordan, who grew up in Brant-  ford, Ontario, and spent four  years at the Winnipeg School of  *Art. Since coming to the coast  he has had one man shows at  the Leafhill Gallery in Vancouver and the Village Square in  West Vancouver.  These paintings were all done  within the past two years, and  cover a variety of styles and  influences. There are still life  studies, traditional and realistic and the everyday grouping  of contemipbrary bric-a-lbrae  makes them relevant to the sixties. Some of the earlier work  is representational and. two  large panels reflect his interest  in the Art Nouveau of the Edwardian era, brought up to  date with today's brilliant colors. '���'���-,  The paintings will be on display until May 10- and the Gallery is open Wednesday through  Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  JUBILAIRES  ORCHESTRA  SEE PAGE 12  THIS WON'T HURT A BIT, Dr.  Roberta Hartman tells Skana,  the Vancouver Public Aquarium's famous killer whale as she  readies the needle for the 5,000-  pound animal's bi-annual antibacterial vaccine shot.

It has been the life-long desire of Mr. Baiba, or Mack, as  he is familiarly known, to work  among flowers and shrubs and  to this end he has quit the woods  and as of March 15 has ibeen in  the nursery business.  Mack fills orders for plants  and trees not in stock by personally picking out choice ones  in out-of-town nurseries, and for  this he is well qualified having  graduated from agriculture  school Kyushu in Fukuoka, Japan.  The Baba family has lived in  Roberts Creek since 1951 and all  seven of their children have been  educated in the local' schools.  Editor: May we use your columns to ask for the help of the  public in compiling a booklet on  What to do with your child's  art work? The Association for  the Support of Progressive Education is assisting art teachers  in collecting ideas and suggestions.  A child's work is very important to him and parental approv-.  al and appreciation are essential  to his feelings of worth and self  respect. Parents with two or  three children are faced with a  continuing problem of how to  display their children's work.  Wall space and notice boards  are ,used, and we heard of a  mother who sandwiches a painting between sheets of heavy  plastic and uses them as place  mats. What do you do with the  drawings , your child brings  home from school? We would  like to include your ideas, how  you use your child's drawings,  ceramics, sculpture, designed  fabrics etc. so that we may  share them with others.  Please contact Joan Warn,  telephone 886-2681 or Maryanne  West, 886-2417.  ���Joan Warn, and Maryanne  West.  Editor: At a meeting that I  recently attended the talk was  about the proposed idea of The  Anglican and United Churches  merging into one grand Company of Church people, and I  mean by this, as people, who  are engaged in running man  directed Churches instead of  God directed, which means complete Spiritual failure, which we  find ourselves confronted with  today, and people asking what's  wrong with the Church. Why  doesn't it draw young people  and so on.  Lets get to the bottom of this  ever unanswered question, what  is wrong with the Church. The  answer simply is what's wrong  with us Individually. This is the  question we won't face because  it is too costly, the price. of  personal Salvation is too disturbing for nice Church people  who are kind, considerate, honest, possibly pure, so lets keep  the Status Quo, God can't disturb that, but when we might  start to deal with Sin then he  will offer us His Son Jesus  Christ, and we just don't want  Him, too personal.  So Church Union will not produce Spiritual Revival, new  Vitality, and activity in the  name of Christ unless the  Churches regain,the Gospel, its  message for and 'mission to the  world.  Only on .these terms can  Spiritual Unity be achieved  through individuals," not large  bodies -of Unconverted people,  Jesus never changed large  crowds of people, he changed  Individuals. One could site a  number of them throughout the  Bible.  The Unity of Our Lord is open  to  all   sorts   of   men   not   only  Anglican and Uniteds, It is not  for Men only or Jews Only, or  Gentiles only and no particular  Class.   It  transends   Denominational barriers The Born again  (and  many   of  us   have   great  difficulty in understanding what  that Born again means,) Nicode-  mus did ��� we sometimes think  that our Confirmation, or Ordination,   or  some   other Anglican  Ritual    constitutes    Re - Bicth  Spiritually.  No  it  has  to  be  a  specific     individual transaction  with   God   constituting   a   complete change in our Lives, Selfishness   replaced  by   Selflessness Hate replaced with Love.  Resentments    banished.    Christian   Fellowship   must   replace,  any form of departmental pos-  sessiveness.  The Born again Anglican  shares this Unity with the Born  Again Non Conformist. But not  with the merely nominal Church  Going Anglican, i.e. with anyone who has never been born  again.  The nature of this Unity is  the Unity of the Twice Born,  which is a Unity of those who  share the same nature and only  as we become partakers of the  Divine Nature can we possibly  share this Unity.  So called Church Union must  be of the True Church, which  is ��� this. The true Church is  composed of all Believers in  the Lord Jesus. It is made up  of all God's elect, of all converted men and women', of all  true Christians, in whomsoever  we can discern the election of  God The Father, the Sprinkling  of the Blood of God the Son, the  sanctifting- work of God the  Spirit, in that Person we see  a member of ChrHst's true  Church.  All members have the  same marks ��� They are all  born again of the Spirit, all  possess Repentance towards  God. They all hate Sin, they  worship differently but all with  one heart. They all draw from  one single Book The Bible. The  foregoing are the only people  who may expect a Union successfully, the present plan of  procedure must fail, and merely become a much larger and  Stronger financial, structure,  more Social, activities, bigger  coffee parties, bigger Sunday  Schools, and so on.  The Angli-  12     Coast News, April 30,71969,  can and Methodist effort in  England -is lalling apart for the  same treasons. Iiets become  Christ men and women, instead  of Churchmen and, women, and  under God we will prevail.-^-AN.
