''���,'::' *'-;';:\?' ���  The speakers explained the  mechanics of credit reporting  and offered the suggestion that  a direct phone line toll free  from Gibsons would give rapid  service which would cost SO'  much per month divided among  members.   Membership  in  the  Vancouver bureau would cost  $60 per, year plus an addejl cost  on reports made on request of  the member. -  > One - speaker pointed out that  people are mainly honest and  ; that 75 percent remained out of  trouble, 20 percent became problems and five percent chronically troubled.  The credit bureau was not only  a credit reporting organization  but also collected debts and its  program of debt collecting was  outlined starting with letters  and ending if necessary in  court���       .... ..,.,.:.���,'....        .

Chairman  Frank Daugherty asked members of the audience to consider  what they have heard and bring  forward their ideas at a meeting: ;which wrill be called at some  future date,       i  Numerous questions .were  asked, some concerning specific  cases and what would,' happen if  the bureau took oyer.

Jim Gurney, president, was  Heights. Director Frank West  also spoke and he proposed that  shortly a meeting to form a 1971  Centennial committee would-be  called. "."���  Some members during the  questioning period were not too  pleased with the proposed high  water rate of $8 per month as  compared to $3 per month in  lower regions of the water system. However the meeting was  informed that before anything  was done about pipes ratepayers  would be asked if they wanted  the system installed.

The , meeting   was   addressed  by chairman Cliff Gilker of the  .Regional board on the subject  ���'of zoning and by Director Lome  Wolverton who spoke on the future water, supply for Gibsons  pages on  '.]A 16 page brochure with six  pages devoted to Gibsons and  the Sunshine Coast! Could be an  interesting idea.'  However it is more than an  idea It is a reality and through  efforts of Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce there  will be several hundred copies  of such a booklet available before the tourist season opens.,  It will happen because of the  formation of the Mainland South  west Tourist /Bureau which is  operating a $160,196 budget  made up of 60 percent government funds and 40 percent funds  from Mainland Southwest tourist groups banded together to  further their tourist industry.  Organization of the 16 page  brochure has already started  and shortly a representative of  Bequest  Bill 11 an act to amend the  Succession Duty act introduced  in the legislature by the minister of finance, Premier Bennett,  created some consternation in  Gibsons when hews about the  bill got around/"  The measure intends to make ���  some changes to the Succession  Duty act and in some cases will  apply to estates from April 1,  1968. Some Giibsonites acquainv  ted with the fact Gibsons United  Church was recipient of a $10,-  000 request recently were won-  dering; if ;'}10'^percent was tax;  free and 90 - percent liable for  succession taxation, would mean  a reduction to /the.' bequest when  taxes were��� removed'. -.;���  A Monday morning phone call  by the Coast News to Hon.

In the booklet will be special  >pages devoted to merchants,  where they are and their products. There will be data on  the place of Gibsons on fb^Sun-  ishine Coast and what it has to  offer the tourist.  Mike Ovenall is the regional  eo-ordinator for this tourism  development. He has appeared  before the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce to  explain what Mainland Southwest means to the community.  Dick Blakeman,. president of  Gibsons District Chamber of  Commerce recently attended a  general meeting of Mainland  Southwest at Chilliwack where  development of the .brochure  scheme was' outlined. It Was  explained that most of the advertising the organization plans  to do outside of British Columbia will be in the prairie provinces as last year cars from the  prairies outnumbered those  from California. >  tribunal.     Gibsons and Sechelt  are members of UBCM.  President Mayor Hugh Curtis  of Saanich said in a letter to the  premier that such a proceeding  is necessary so that residents of  this province may know whether  an increase in electricity rates  at this time is justified.  - The UBCM made a similar rec  ommendation to hydro chairman  Dr. G6rdon7 Shrum following a  recent meetihg at which Shrum  told UBCM officials a rate increase should ho longer be delayed;  Curtis suggested to Bennett  that before any decision is made  unilaterally on rates the Hydro  authority should present its case  before an independent tribunal.  Only in this way; he said, can  B.C. residents understand clearly the accomplishments of the  authority in recent years, its  'responsibilities in the immediate future, and what must be  done to ensure its financial stability.  "We believe such a course  would be of great benefit to all  concerned��� the government,  the authority, and most importantly the people." Curtis said.  "Then if the necessity for increased rates were clearly  proved the step would be much  more readily acceptable."

Last week it  was reported with no names  mentioned that frogs were in  concert nightly in the vicinity of  westerly  Gibsons.1 '������;  Hopkins Landing reports the  frogs have got past the spring  croaking stage because spring  is so far advanced there that  camelias, dogtooth violets snow  drops and grape hyacinth are  in bloom.. No names will be  mentioned from Hopkins but the  Coast News has the evidence in  a vase on its desk for .all to see.  So Hopkins has thrown down  the gauntlet to the rest of the  nation���including Trudeau country the other side of the Rockies.  JOINT SERVICES  St. Aidan's Anglican church at  Roberts Creek and , Roberts  Creek United church will begin  monthly united services starting  on the first. Sunday' in March.  Services will be held in the  churches alternately on the first  Sunday each month. On June 7  the Joint services will be reviewed with the idea of holding  such services twice a month so  that there will be one minister  present at Roberts Creek on  joint service Sundays.  Adverse publicity arising from  a recent dance in the high  1 school auditorium has prompted the formation of a new group  in Gibsons who hope to hold  teen dances on a regular basis.  The group, as yet unnamed,  held their first meeting Sunday  night with representatives oJf  the Kinsmen club, Royal Canadian Legion and high school students present.  Plans were laid for the first  of these dances in the Legion  Hall, Friday, March 20. Due to  the size of the hall, 250 tickets  only will be pre-sold for this  dance in order to gauge the size  of crowd that can be expected  for such affairs. Tickets will be  made available at the high  school.  PLAYGROUND   SUPERVISION  The Kinette Club of Gibsons,  who provided playground supervisors last year on Dougal Park  would like to do the. same again  this year. However they require  a show that the parents of the  area are willing to help with the  financing of this project. They  welcome all donations and would  like to receive them by Friday,  March 13/ If sufficient interest  is not shown by the parents of  the area, all donations received  will be (returned. Donations  should besent to Kinettes Playground; Box" '^ Gibsons. *  group  Memberships will be available  of the dances under the super-  which will take over the running  of the dances uder the supervision of the Kinsmen and Legion. Policing at the dances will:  be primarily by the teenagers  themselves, but representatives  from the other two groups will  be present.  Labonte resigns  Gibsons Athletic Association  announces the resignation of.  Larry Labonte as co-ordinator  of the Sunshine Coast Little  League Baseball association.  This position must be filled in  order that the leagues can be  organized for this year.  A meeting of the - association  will be held in March and this  will be an important topic of  discussion.

An earlier notice that the dates would be  March 13 and 14 was incorrect.  uig  procesfe-m- our  own   communities.  What better time to pay tribute to a section of our own com  munity   whose  job when   well  done   contributes   in   no   small  way to the quality of education  in   this   district.   Our janitorial  service. I have been most 'impressed  by  the   attitude  taken  by  our janitors;   that old fashioned   pride   in   their   work   as  they strive to keep our schools  in top  shape. Regretably they  do not always receive the support   they   should   have   from  those  iioij   wihjose   benefit   the  school exists. How about it kids?  The   sixties   saw   tremendous  changes in the educational picture  in this  school district reflecting the     changing thought  across the continent. Added to  the  challenge  of  a rapidly  increasing      school      population  which      caused  most     of   our  schools to burst at the seams,  were  the      new   ideas     which  confronted us at every turn.  The changes are too numerous to do more than mention a  few of the more important ones,  such as the establishment of.  kindergartens, the addition of  library���resource, centres to  elementary schools, recognition  of the school's responsibility  to supply remedial help for the  individual child's learning problem's and perhaps most important and far reaching in its  ultimate effects the gradual improvement in the. flexibility of  the curriculum and the schools  efforts to adapt it to individual  needs.'     -  If 1 may be allowed to forecast some personal opinions, the  seventies are going to offer us  a   continuation   of   these   same  challenges, in fact we'll probably have  to  cope  with   change  at an even faster rate. Especially in the growth of the school  populations and the pressure on  our   existing   plant.   They   are  going to be years in which we  shall  have     to  use     the  best  brains and ideas available to us  t.o  cope  with  the  problems  on  financing   the   facilities   which  our children will need and we  will have to go even further in  making maximum use of existing facilities:  Working   with   young   people  has  always  been  a  rewarding  pie, ready and eager to take  a share in the exciting work of  improving the society in which  we live and coping with the  problems of our times. We  should be encouraging them and  finding opportunities to use  their talents, their enthusiasm  and their energy.  The name of the game will  be to be well-informed and  understand what is happening  and why. This will be, I believe  a very important part of the  School Board's function, not only that we understand but that  we find ways and means to  share that understanding with  the community especially with  those of you who pay school  taxes.  This education week effort to  bring you and the schools into  closer contact marks the beginning of the Board's public  relations committee's concern  to make this a year round project. Lets keep in touch.  MEETING DATE CHANGE  The meeting announced by  .., the Sunshine Coast Protection  Society for March 6 to discuss  forestry problems, slashbuxning  and sustained yield in this area  has been postponed to April 13  because of Gibsons Rod and  Gun Club's arrangments for a  return visit from Mr. Cunningham to show outdoor films at  Elphinstone   on   that  date.

On the subject of establishment by the federal government of  a bureau to be known as Information Canada the editor of the  Coast News is in the position where he will be opposite the general attitude of the press and other news media.  Information Canada according to Prime Minister Trudeau's  explanation in the house of commons will promote co-operation  among federal information offices now operating in mutual isolation. The object, he said, would be to increase effectiveness as. well-  as save money by reducing duplication in the use of staff and equipment and by better joint use of government information resources.  Now, to state the case of the Coast News editor, he has for  years, whenever he was able to strike up conversation with federal cabinet ministers, suggested that in view, of incomplete new information of what a government is doing, it should have 4ts own  information branch so it can state its case clearly for general public consumption.  It is for this reason that the Coast News, on any major issue,  prefers to have the government or board involved state its caste  its own words and not in the words of the. editor or anyone else.  From that beginning readers can make up their own minds without having to strive to form a opinion oh incomplete information.;  That is also why this publication is giving both Mr. ^Frank West  and the municipal council complete freedom to state their case on.  the sewage issue. Editorial opinion will be confined to the editorial  page only.  But to get back to the federal government situation there was  a time when the government departments produced reference papers on subjects which they were deliberating. This was of considerable value to anyone deciding to delve into government actions.  It should be continued. ,  The editor believes that the government has the same right  as any public relations organization to outline its point of view  and will be looking forward to operations of Information Canada.  Formation of Information Canada will not stop pressmen and  others from doing their own job in their own way, but it will help  the public if it can get a government point of view clearly stated.  There is the age-old argument still extant about a piece of pro  posed legislation which the government has Worked over for two or  three years before presenting it. A copy is sent to a newspaper editorial writer. In 20 minutes he tears the thing to shreds in an editorial. Can you wonder why governments are organizing information bureaus?  A romantic early stage  President Nixon's proposals to Congress for stopping pollution  of the environment strike a high-reaching and hopeful tone. In  may ways, his message befits the present romantic early stage of  regenerating the environment. Americans now are united in their  sense of mission on this issue. Of this there is no doubt.  In a way, civilized man now is embarking on a second conquest  of nature. He now faces a wilderness of his own creating. This is  an alien region of ugly, harmfully fouled water, air and land. The  President's proposals, in a more comprehensive way than even the  most optimistic political observers had expected, would introduce  a number of practical remedies on all these pollution fronts. For  example, water pollution would be fought not only with funds for  waste treatment plants, but also with a tighter national river-basin  cleanup master plan and with stiffer enforcement action. An air  pollution end would be sought with enforceable national standards  and the phaseout of high-pollutant automobiles.  Only in two key areas could tbe President's plan be faulted.  Both of these were assumptions. He said the nation's environment  crisis was not the by-product of "advancing technology or of grow  ing population." Perhaps he said this to avoid debate over population control or over the need to monitor the nation'�� production  -expansion. However neither he nor the American people can ignore  the role played by sheer numbers of people in the environmental  souring. And with America's population expected to increase half  again by the end of this century, but 30 years from now, the need  either to prepare for such numbers or to moderate the growth rate  is clear.  Likewise, one must ask whether industry and technology can  be allowed to grow like wild untrellised vines, choking such natural resources as remain. Indeed, in imposing pollution standards  on the nation's auto production, such monitoring of industrial output is already being put into effect. Whether the nation is going  to allow itself to be buried under mountains of waste, without demanding that products either be reused or not made in the first  place, is likewise being answered "no" in the President's own  message. ��� Christian Science Monitor.  GET YOUR MAP  of the  SUNSHINE COAST  at the  COAST NEWS  GIBSONS  :/\ (By ERIC THOMSON)  When *ny sister Thelma was  in Victoria recently after ah absence of many years, she paid  a nostalgic visit to North Ward,  where we lived in the days of  Queen Victoria, and she noted  that North Ward school had'  been demolished. She said in  jest that she ought to have taken a brick from the ruins as a  memento.  My wife and I were in Victoria a few weeks later, and I went  to the site to remedy my sister's  oversight, but found that the  Victoria School Board had outdone the Romans, who had left  not one stone on another on their,  destruction of Carthage, as there  wasn't enough left above ground  of the old seminary to make a  door-step, and the only relics  were the remaining half-dozen  huge chestnut trees, in full  bloom, trees that I saw being  planted.  ' While we were in Victoria,  my wife and I called, on Mr.  Ainsley Helmcken, the City Archivist at the City Hall, and in  its luxurious committee room  we were discussing how old  Victoria, people and buildings  had vanished, and he told us  that on the North Ward site  would arise a tall building to  house the operations of the Colonist  and the  Times,   and the  and lived in one and then the  other until 1904.       ;   '  I started school life at North ���  Ward,  and went, right  up and  out. The school had just been  completed when we got there,  but   when   the   session   opened  there  was some' trouble about  the tower, and while that was  being fixedjclasses \were held  in    the    Centennial   \Methodist  Church and Sunday School. One  wet day there descended on this  church,  like the  Assyrian,'the  principal,    Mr. A.R-    MacNeil,  known to his pupils as Old Mac,  and he must have been all of  .30 years of age. This visit Created the same foreboding that a  move    was    impending     that,  years later, a visit of staff officers created in the mind of the  troops put at rest. There followed  a flitting to that unpretentious  building, where we got an education like the school, .straight  up and down arid no frills, and  even  the  style of handwriting  was  Gage's Vertical.'  Some of the teachers were  from Nova Scotia, and Evangeline formed part of our literature, to be memorized, and we  got to know the murmuring  pines and the hemlocks really  well, and have never forgotten  them, now how these young and  homesick teachers impressed  upon our innocent and receptive  fact that there had been  this���minds, the beauties of the Mari-  school there would be forgotten    times. ,  .  if somebody didn't write it&  story. As an early alumnusi of  North Ward, and for years ih;  exile in Scotland the recipient  of the Colonist Weekly/ and a  delivery boy for the Times when  bicycles were new, I got the  idea that Mr. Helmcken: was  putting the finger on me to  write a requiem/   -  Back in the early '90's, my  father, James Thomson, was ;Hv  B.C. store manager in Vancouver. In 1896 he moved to Victoria, where the Company of  Adventurers of England had  varied interests, a wholesale  branch, a fur trade depot,  farms, then rented to Chinese,  and an interest in the Canadian  Pacific Navigation Company,  the fore-runner of the C.P.R.  Coast Service. The Colonist in  reporting his doings quaintly  referred to him as the local representative.  We stayed at the New England Hotels until our house was  ready. Victoria was larger than  Vancouver at that time, and our  mother warned my sister and  myself not to wander from the  hotel in case we^got lost. We  then moved to one of Humber's  two story brick houses on Gorge  Road, almost across from thn  Centennial   Methodist   Church,  We;; young Victorians, and  proud of it, wondered if this was  so, why these teachers crossed  a continent to Victoria, and the  reason was financial; for the go?  ing pay in Victoria was all of  $75. a montn^..agamst $50. in  Nova Scotia; They also impressed on us that there was no sin  in i Acadia. This conviction  stayed with me for many years,  until in the first war I was for  a time with a Nova Scotia unit,  and what these North Shore  Novies did in the Bucket of  Blood in Folkstone^on pay nights  shattered that iUuision:  At that time the lObndyke  Rush was on and one of these  young men hit the trail of '98.  His going-away presents from  the school were a pick and shovel, a red tie, and 40 feet of  rope. I have always thought  that there was some sinister  significance in that last item.  Old Mac rah his school on" a  tight rein. On the morning lineup the classes stood in two  ranks.

Sometimes there was also  deposited on the school steps  a sack of flour or a sack of potatoes.  On this memorable occasion,  in the lunch hour, There drew  up at the centre, steps a one-  horse delivery rig, and full to  the brim with salted herring,  this being a present from a fireman named Babchuck one of  the crew of the Barbara Bos-  cowitz, which traded up the B.C.  Coast. Present day Victorians  can draw easy inference from  these names that these herrings  were not Canada Grade A. We  sniffed, and confirmed this, and  one orphan gingerly removed a  herring from the barrel, and  being taunted by a v non-orphan  on having to eat it sooner or later, settled that question immediately by slapping the taun-  ter across the face with it.  Within seconds the. air was full  of herrings and joyous boys,  and,the school steps and gravel  playground littered with high  and oily fish. The school bell  rang, the principal looked over  the serried ranks and the corpses on the battlefield,  and we  all had to wash up. but the  stink and oily marks remained  for weeks.  We didn't have any fire; drill,  but' on two occasions I recall the  school being evacuated in a  matter of minutes. The first  time was when we had a sizeable earthquake, which sent  bricks thundering down the furnace chimney. Professor Robertson, who was at the receiving  end who complained of rheumatism, on which he played on  the feelings of the boys so that  they would feed the cordwood  sticks into the furnace, lit from  ,. his domain like a. deer, bound  for Douglas Street, the rest of  us following him. He stayed  there but we kept on going.  The other time happened thus:  In those days the Fire Department had an arrangement with  the Victoria Phoenix Brewery  to signal the number of the firebox on a fire taking place, so  that kibitzers knew where to go.  For example, 2���7, two toots  followed by seven more was the  alarm box at the corner of Government and Chatham, then the  redhght district  One afternoon the whistle tooted and kept on tooting, and  some boy shouted "Mafeking is  relieved" and made for the  door, and' by the time he hit  Douglas Street, the rest of us,  teachers and all were after,hint.  There certainly was turmoil  down outside the New England  Hotel when we got there, bands  getting under way, beer at 5  cents a glass flowing like a river, and Chinese stores firing  off crackers. One of these stores  was throwing double-fused crackers the size of beer bottles  from an upper window, and a  number of North Ward boys  were stamping on the fuses and  salvaging a fair number of the  crackers.  In those days the North Ward  playground was made of cinders^ from the gas works, and  on it was played a game of marbles called Stink-pot. This consisted of five holes spaced like  the five on a domino, and the  contestants had to roll their way  around the five. With minor  deepening these holes formed  ideal burying places for loot,  and the resulting explosions  were many times louder than if  these bombs had been exploded  in the openv It took seven loads  of cinders to level off the holes,  and the remarkable thing was  that in spite of all this noise  and debris, no one had paid any  attention as.to who was doing  all this, and naturally Old Mac  came up against blank wall of  innocence, and there was no  aftermath. I wasn't in on the  theft of the bombs, for I cleaned  up Chinatown that afternoon at  big ring marbles and came  home with both pants' pockets  full, more than I ever had before or since.  We had no social activities  at North Ward, other than the  school break-up in the middle  of June. This took place in the  'top floor of the school, in a kind  loft, and the visiting dignitary  who distributed the prizes was  the miniter of the Metropolitan  Methodist Church, a tall, stout,  ANDY  CAPP  and discursive sky-pilot, who  looked dignified in a broad  black hat and frock coat.  His address, which never varied from year to year, was on  three words, inspiration, realization and perspiration. I don't  know about the first two, but  he was the living exponent; of  the third word, for in that uninsulated, crowded and uncomfortable room, he simply boiled  over. He dried up at last, and  the boys lit out for home to doff  Sunday clothes for bare feet and  bathing suits, and then down to  (Continued on Page 6)  SUB-DIVISION  18 LOTi 72' x 130-CLEARED with FRUIT TREES, ALL SERVICES -. 1BLOGK FROM SHOPPING CENTRE  CENTRE, SCHCmLS, TRANSPORTATION/ CHURCHES, BUS STOP, PARK  ���luarles English Ltd.

Some 50 people attended and  an evening of true fellowship  was enjoyed. Community singing was ably led by Mr. and  Mrs. Peters in leadership and  piano accompaniment.  The birth, origin and purpose  of the breakfast Groups was  based on the original founding  on the first; Breakfast of Christ  with the Fishermen of 'Galilee  at the Sea of Tiberias.. Brief  Testimonies were given by each .  member of the Breakfast Group  as to how and why they found  the Christian life.  Finally a powerful presentation of a life in Christ was delivered by Jack Tomlinsori, a  layman from Seattle and a mem  hereof Nthe Seattle group, stres-  v sing convincingly and with great  conviction the urgent and drastic need in our world today of a  turning, to God through Christ  as the only one hope for civilization.

The  issue came before council in the  form of a letter.  , Following the meeting he explained his negative vote. He  said that it was not the job of  a municipal council to support  any particular sect or sects.  The letter came from the Canadian Council of Christians and  Jews.  The letter was also (read by  Mayor Swain at Sechelt's council meeting and the aldermen  jocularly voted "to support the  motion because the organization sought to get publicity as  the result of council's action.  exam  Finance,Minister E.J.

Old Victoria  (Continued from Poge 3)  the Gorge at Selkirk Water, to  swim at Wood's Point and Flat  Rock, how covered by the B.C.  Forests Products -mill, but then  in parts, Palmer's Orchard, and  in part a grove where grew a  profusion of Lady Slippers.  The first undertaking of the  summer was the purification by  fire of Halkett Island, that rock  marked the furthest that any  of us could swim. It had been  an Indian cemetery at a time  when the dead were hung in the  trees. These had long since disappeared, but the tale was that  the Indians had died of smallpox, and we might catch it if  the grass wasn't burnt. After  the purification by fire there  was a ritual search for beads,  and there were lots of them,  nearly all small blue glass ones,  but I found two made from  some kind of stone, which today  would be museum pieces.  The only other outstanding  school ceremony that I remember was the memorial service  at the Metropolitan Methodist  Church on the death of Queen  Victoria. We were marshalled  in column of twos, and went  along Cook to Pandora. While  we were waiting to be fed into  the church, one of the biggest  boys decided,to dodge the ceremony, left the ranks, and instead of running back towards  North Ward, made tracks for  South Park, closely pursued by  our -redoubtable principal, Old  Mac. The boy was getting ahead  of his pursuer, when the principal threw the school bell after him. This was in the shape  of a double bicycle beU, with a  short handle, and of considerable weight. The bell hit the boy  at the back of the neck and  knocked him cold. He fell to  the ground, and for the moment  it looked as if we were going  to attend a double funeral service. The. corpus delecti was removed into the church, where  he recovered and lasted out the  service, and lived to become  that daffodills and damask dentist above mentioned.  When that Nova Scotian was  getting ready for the Klondyke,  one of the senior teachers at  North Ward was a lady named  Miss Carrie Dowler, sister of  the City Clerk. Looking back at  the scores of instructors under  whom I have sat in an unusual  number of schools, colleges and  countries, I place this lady,  known to us as ��� "Auntie"* right  at the top of the roll of honour.  She taught us more than the  three R's. In those days the  teachers gathered -in a staff  room next to her class room,  after school, for something to  keep body and soul together.  This was prepared by Auntie  on a couple of gas rings in the  class ante-room, and consisted  of tea, toast, bacon and eggs or  scrambled eggs. She also had  her delinquents.  On the assumption that the  Klondyke might last long enough for us to get there, she  taught us boys to darn socks,  sew on buttons, and to cook on  those, gas rings, acting on the  example of Tom Sawyer . and  his white-washing. As an inducement to get our work done fibr  which we had been kept in, the  first two or three boys finished,  got the job of fixing up those.,  eats; from marketing to waiting on table. I remember get-;  ting the makings at Johns Brothers, eggs 25 cents a dozeh,  butter, 25 cents a pound, and  bread at 5 cents a loaf. The  skill thus early acquired is  still, with me and for the last  26 years I have made Sunday  breakfast a la Dowler.  She had a delightful change of  pace for the last period on Friday afternoons. Kipling was  new then, and she; read us the  Mowgli stories, and she could  read, and kept us spell-bound.  A very; long time after, I was  in Victoria, and enquired about  Auntie and learned that she  was approaching retirement and  that the School Board know-  ledgeably had given her a junior class at South Park School,  near her residence. Quite by  chance I happened to be passing  that school on Friday after-y  noon, when the little children ,  were at recess. Something  clicked.and I made enquiries  for Auntie's room, found it,  chose a back seat, and was  there when heir class and Aun  tie entered the room.  My presence in the back seat  was the subject of giggles, and  presently-Auntie spotted me and  said: "Well, little boy; where  are you from," I toldher to  guess, a long, long time ago at  North Ward. She mentioned  names like Ken McCaridless,  whom I had seen in his baby  buggy. I toldi her who I was,  and she remembered my sister  Thelma, tout not me. I then  asked her if she still had those  Friday afternoon entertainments  and she said that she had, but  this Friday there was going rto  "be a complete change of program, for I was to do the story  telling.  I  took her  up on this,   and  told the class and her to make  themselves    comfortable,    and  told them the story of my own  Odyssey down the years to that  afternoon.   I had   never   done  anything like that before, but I  had been as far afield as that  old    Greek,    and I   guess    he  helped me tell the tale, for when  I quit right on the biutton as the  buzzer went to end^tne day,; I  had the children spell-bound for  the anoment, and Auntie'; too.  XTwo years ago, iny wife and  I were in'Victoria and saw from  the hotel window that huge oil-  ;driiling rig '-then at the Outer  \Wharf.   It   was   pur  last  day  there,  so we went put on the  bus to"have a look at it. I re-  inemibered that the other end of  that bus line was but Douglas  Street,  and  as-we had  heard  that the North Ward School was  to be torn down", we found that  there was     nice time   . before  lunch. to pay a farewell visit.  We found that the principal was.  ill and  the  vice-principal  was  away on some business for the  morning, so my wife ;gotltalking  with the  principal's  secretary,  and as  they were both Scots,  that put me out of the picture,  so I rambled through the ground  floor corridor.  There was little change, other  than that there were pictures  all along it. There appeared a  tpacher for a breather, having  -set his class some task, so I  explained my presence to him.  He. returned to his class-room  and re-appeared with a slightly  quizzical expression on his face,  and fold me that he had told his  class that there was a man in  the hall who had been a pupil  at North Ward school when it  was new, and one of the boys  had asked ' him "if he was a  spirit". I was invited to show  myself in the flesh, entered, the  class-room and came; ihvfdr a  pleasant surprise. ?  The pupils, as ini my^day,  were a league of nations as; to  racial' origins^"hut while they  were better dressed than we  were, they had, the hall-marks  of Victoria, ���-the nice mariners  and that pleasantly modulated  way of speaking which indicates its background. On my  way out, I asked my teacher  friend  if  they  still  had  those  Friday spell-outs, and he  showed me on the wall the last  week's results.  The old school wasn't much to  look at, but it did the job well,  andjmaybe when that lofty new  building arises on its -site, there  might* be a sufficient number  of bricks resurrected from the  debris to put round a drinking  fountain, a minor reproduction  of ^hkt was done dn Centennial  S^u#re, or in some dignified  memorial room the new owners  provide classes in basic English  for Victoria radio sports announcers.

In private life, Mr. Danson is  a plastics manufacturer. He has  curly auburn hair, a face composed largely of nose and is usually found smiling. Mr. Danson  is one who believes that a bit  of laughter is not misplaced,  even in our sometimes somber  Parliament.  Even when he complains he  complains gently. Hansard once  listed his name as Barley Dan- ;  son. He rose on a question of  privilege, but only to note that  this went against his grain.  However Mr. Danson is sometimes serious, even while smiling, as you may detect in his  introduction to Coast Chiicotin  of the Danson Cash Card.  "The crux of my idea is to  bring cash back into sityle.'  (Cash, if /you recall, is that  green paper stuff with pictures  of the Queen on it.

This presents  ttwo problems. Firstly, because  we can delay payment, we are  seduced into buying the things  we NEED. Secondly, the retailer usually has to pay the credit  card company anywhere from  4 to 7 percent of the sales price  and this getts built into the;,  price he puts on an article or  service.  "When you and I go into a  shop and pay cash, the retailer  makes 4 to 7 percent more on  our purchase. In effect, we are  paying a penalty for our frugality.' I am urging that you request a discount on such purchases and I think retailers  should be happy to give you 4  or 5 percent for your prompt  payment.  "When the retailer receives  prompt payment, he can reduce  his bank loan, on which he can  , be paying 10 percent yearly.  Secondly, his cash position is  improved so that he can buy-  more competitively from his  wholesaler, who also can- use  cash and thus buy on better  terms from the -manufacturer^  With credit being so scarce and  thus expensive, everyone can  ..���benefit.  ' :'"  "The ��� effects can pyramid.  Costs can be reduced and we all  tend to become more competitive. Ultimately, our entire economy could be on a sounder  basis. It might even force us to  re1-think our somewhat freewheeling and high-flying- methods of operation which nave  tended to accelerate in recent  years. We might recapture  some of those old-fashioned, but  sensible, virtues such as thrift."  "Now I'm not saying it's as  simple as all this, or that cash  buying alone is the answer to  our inflation problems. As long  as there 'is a high degree of inflation "in the U.S., we will continue to have a tough flight. We  can, however, be a lot worse off  and this is pne\of a combination  of things we can do to fight inflation."  So says -Mr.   Danson  on  the  subject of inflation. -  He     has  had     printed some  (  Cashex cards which read "Busi-  ���  nesses   allowing   credit  or   accepting credit cards are urged i  to give  the  bearer  a discount  when   paying   cash,   equivalent  to their credit cost.  "Mr. Retailer: Inflation can  only be beaten by the concerted  effort of all Canadians. Reduce  costs, where possible, by eliminating credit charges for those  paying cash."  Any Coast Chiicotin residents  who want to carry a cashex  card may write- my office for  one. Barney has provided me a  supply. (He paid cash for them,  he says.)

Point of law  SUNSHINE COAST DIRECTORY  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Many people wonder why sentences in criminal cases seem to  vary so widely.  Our criminal law usually places a wide discretion in the judge  as to whethei* the sentence is to  be severe or Jehierit. In other cases the judge is held within cer-  limits.        ;>: v  Many offences are punishable  by a maximum term of six  months imprisonment or $500  fine or both. In some serious  cases the sentence may be up  to life imprisonment. For some*  crimes the sentence is set, such  a$ the sentence for capital murder must be death. The punishment set by the judge for a second conviction for impaired driving must be. imprisonment for  not less than; 14 days and not  more than three months.  What  factor may   the  judges  take into account when decidingX  on senetence? Unless the punish- 4  ment is fixed he may consMer:  The seriousness of the offence,  me punishment provided, by law,  the  deferent effect   on  others,  the likely reformative effect on  the! accused,  the.accused's re-  (Copyright)  cord, and any  extenuating circumstances.  What can the judge not consider? He may not consider any  feeling of anger, malice or revenge he may harbor. Sometimes a judge will adjourn sentence to allow himself to cool  down. The judge also may not  consider any previous record  not proved, any. pending charges,  or the fact that the accused has  pleaded not.guilty.  Our criminal laws system of  setting sentences has been much  criticized.on the grounds that it  results in wide variation of punishments between individual  judges. Of course no two judges  - Will ever view a case in exactly  the same light. Some judges  view certain crimes with abhorrence, others^: with tolerance.  h Our.. system- is flexible and to  overcome this orMcism it would  ;be necessary to set punishments  within narrow limits which  would detract from the fIexibil-  Kity..' In any event, the sentence  is always appealable to the higher court's and these exercise a  smoothing or uniform effect: ".;^  Nurses accept contract terms  Terms of a new two-year contract for nurses at 69 British  Columbia hospitals have been"  accepted by a vote of 94 percent. The agreement between  the Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia and the  B.C. Hospitals' Association was  reached with the assistance of  mediation officer Ed Sims.  The agreement is effective  Jan. 1, to Dec. 31, 1971 and provides for an 8 percent salary increase in the second year.  The 1970 base irate for a registered general staff nurse will  be $549 to a maximum of $684.  The base rate in 1971 at that  level will be $590 to a maximum  of $740. The base rate in 1969  was $508 to $633.  The contract also provides for  a shorter work week of 38%  hours in the first year and 37%  hours in the second year.  The portability clause provides for transferable salary increments, sick leave benefits  arid service credits towards extended vacations if not more  than 60 calendar days elapse after a nurse's last employment in  another British Columbia hospital.  Other benefits include a shift  differential of $1.20 for each afternoon and night shift worked.  The Registered Nurses' association of British Columbia has  asked the provincial government  to adjust the budget for public  health services in order to provide at least the level of serviced  in effect three years! ago. The  recbmmehdaiion was- made in a  .;���;������ brief submitted to the provincial  cabinet by the association. , -  The situation has become even  . more critical this year because  the government has allowed no  increase in nursing personnel. ���  School health services by public health nurses, for example,  have been curtailed in the^ Surrey Delta, Coquitlam, New West-  ��� minster and Kandoops areas.  School boards in these areas  employed 247 additional teachers in "1969,'/.No additional public health nurses were permitted.
