Mr. Ritchey was born in 1903  in Ohesaw, Washington, the oldest of five children from his father's second marriage. His parents, born and raised in Canada,  emigrated to the United States  where they settled on a barren  homestead in Okanogan County,  Washington. Here Alfred and his  two brothers and two sisters  were born.  There followed years of poverty and struggle to make a liv-  lihood as the five children grew  up. Wihen Alfred completed his  second year of high school his  formal education ended as the  local school did not go beyond  that grade.

By the time he had finished  school he assumed the role ;of  oldest brother and cheerfully  helped his parents with the raising of the family.

At times he worked for  Jackson Logging company and  others before forming his own  Middlepoint Logging company. .

Players get board help  Driftwood Flayers who have  produced one Draana Festival  prize winner and recently regaK  ed Sunshine Coast audiences  witli an excellent farce, appeared before the school board with  a plea to be excused having to  pay rent. The Driftwood delegation learned that it would have  to pay the rent amounting to  $100 but if they would consider  placing their projects under adult education direction they  would then be able to use the  hall rent free.  Presenting their case the Players explained that receipts from  the Sechelt appearance totalled  $40. Total receipts including the  Gibsons performance reached  $267.41 but expenses were such  that    the"   deficit    now    totals  $159-69.  Driftwood Players pointed put  that the school board paid out a  good-sized sum on Holiday Playhouse productions and Driftwood  Players were of the opinion they  could do the same job and use  local talent to do the same type  of productions.  The board was informed that  Driftwood Players were on the  verge of success as a respectable community theatre organization. They wanted to try for  a. greater Community theatre.  Board members were sympathetic and recommended they  turn their efforts into coming  within scope of the Adult Educa-  1 ion program with drama as  their accon.plislh.ment. This  would help them cut expenses.  School trustee wanted  Laundromat fire  At 11 p.m. Sunday night, fire  was discovered in the Laundromat on Marine Drive. Firemen  and RCMP investigating traced  the cause to boys throwing firecrackers down an air vent, igniting rags which helped the fire  to spread. Ken Strange of Janitor services found the laundromat filled with smoke on entering. Damage was not serious.

Also present  was P. L. Prescesky who has  placed his name before the board  to fill the vacancy following the  retirement of Trustee Dr. Walter Burtnick who has filled his  two year term. As no nominations were available for an election it will be up to the board  to recommend someone to education   department  officials   to  fill the seat.  To stem further violations of  fire regulations on school premises when rented for public  functions the board' revised its  rental form and provided that  any infringement of regulations  be reported directly to the maintenance supervisor, R. J. Rutter.  Supt. R. R. Hanna reported  that the school band at Elphin  stone would practice in the electricity shop on a trial basis at  the end of January thus dispensing with use of portables if possible.  Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metzler read a letter from McMillan  Planetarium advising of the good  deportment of students visiting  the Planetarium from Elphinstone and Langdale schools.  dt��MttmiiMmii_mmiMttiiunntuuiiuutnuiiniiiu��iuntwi  Road blocks  Road blocks by the RCMP are  now in force on the Sunshine  Coast, particularly in the Gibsons detachment area.  Official records show that liquor has been involved in 41  percent of accidents in this area.  Last Christmas and New Year  holiday season checkups held  accidents down to a minimum  but since then accidents have  shown a considerable increase.  MnranmiitMinBiiMwnTiM  Hampered by lack of water  and a tank of furnace oil adding  to the fire hazard, Gibsons Volunteer Fire department fought  a blaze which had smouldered  inside the Garry A. Boyce home  in Crahthams early Sunday. "Thes  alarm was turned in at 6:15 a.m.  The building, one of the older  ones in Granthams was completely gutted inside along with  its contents. Mr. and Mrs. Boyce  were in Seattle at the time of  the fire. Insurance is expected  to cover most of the loss.  Firemen were still igetting at  the last of the blaze at 8:30  when the above picture was taken.  Division 7:  Chessmen came up with another win as they beat Kenmac  Bombers 3-2 Sunday, Dec. 13,on  the grounds behind Gibsons Elementary school. This was a well-  matched game, Kenmac Bombers playing one of their best so  far and appear to be improving  rapidly.  Chessmen opened scoring on  some good ball control by Kerry-  White when he went around the  two   defence men   and shot  it  past the goalie to the lower right  hand corner, not giving Chuck  Esslemont a  chance.  Keranacs  came back to tie the score on a  penalty shot by Scott Phillips.  In the second half Kerry White  scored goals 10 and 11 of the  season in Kerry's second hat  trick of the season. Kenmac  Bombers then completed the  scoring with one minute left as  Scott Phillips broke in from left  wing and beat Ken Guenther  with a shot just inside the post.  Chessmen have now won  three, lost three and tied one  half way through the season.  Again it was pleasing to see so  many parents out for Division  seven game to cheer their lads  along.

While there were no upsets in Saturday's Regional District and  Gibsons municipal elections there were some interesting developments from what could be termed a quiet election.  In Gibsons Aid. Mandelkau and Goddard were re-elected. The  third candidate Winston Robinson tallied a surprising 140 votes,  double the number most people estimated he would get.  The total Gibsons vote was 25 percent of voting strength and  Aid. Mandelkau obtained exactly the same number of votes, 209,  as he did in his 1969 vote to fill the seat vacated by Wally Peterson who achieved the post of mayor, when Mayor Feeney was moved to Prince'George. However the surprise was the slump in Aid.  Goddard's vote. In his previous election in 1968 he was elected by  acclamation. In his 1966 and first election he topped the polls with  212. The 25 votes he dropped fell to Mr. Robinson.  The results in the Regional District vote were not surprising  because it was felt Mr. Thorold of West Sechelt and Mr. A_mohd  of Roberts Creek were the pick of the field. Mr. Thorold topped  the poll with 98 votes and Rita P. Relf who once worked folr the  Regional District board and quit before the election obtained a  strong 87 votes while the third candidate Mr. Holgate managed to  get 35. Where the Holgate voters would have gone if he had not  run is an interesting question.  In the Roberts Creek area Mr. Almond won with 79 votes  and one candidate on a perennial performance, Mr. McLean, came  out a poor second. In the 1969 election against Mr. Gilker he polled 53 votes compared to Mr. Gilker's^ 83. Mr. Gilker decided not to  run this year. As second man on the list Mr. McLean dropped to  32. Mr. Jaimes, not regarded as a likely winner obtained 22 votes.  It is of interest to note that one of the signers of nomination papers  for Mr. James was Mayor Wally Peterson of Gibsons whose attitude towards the board does not mean complete co-operation.  However the Regional District board directors and Gibsons  aldermen appear to be on course for next year arid in view of  opposition to [Regional board affairs (becoming more vocal and the  possibility bf -r-bsoris municipal^ scru  tiny in the months to come, it does appear that the subject* of municipal politics will contain much of interest to taxpayers generally.  Whatever happened?  ��� f Changing times have brought us a long way from the unsophisticated family fun which marked the yule season of 50 years ago  when there were skating parties, taffy pulls, carolling arid parlor  games. Sometimes it seems as though Christmas has degenerated  into a grab and grasp season of overspending, overeating and  credit buying, an excess of tastelessness, frenetic ugliness.  Sometimes the decrying of commercialism is just a cop-out  from the whole Christmas scene by those too uncaring or insensitive to explore and re-discover Christmas as the happy, sharing  experience it was meant to be.  Those Three Wise Men certainly didn't know what they started  that night so long ago! They brought their most treasured possessions, gold, oils and spices, commodities of great importance in the  trading economy of the day. They gave their best as an act of  worship. Whatever happened to that idea?

Sechelt Theatre's special  Christmas entertainment will be  Walt Disney's Cinderella with  one show Christmas day and  three on Boxing Day.  Imperial Oil's Nove_r_ber Review magazine contains an item  headed Lower Education, written by Jocelyn Dingman which  asks why all the fuss about  schools for V/2 year olds? What  good does it dothem? Here are  some excerpts from that article  . which may add some stimulus  to the local nursery school situation:  For most middle-class parents  who send their children to nursery school, intellectual stimulation is not a primary concern.  Their children have lots of toys  and books at home, and parents  who take them to parks and zoos  What Arnold Gesell and Frances Ilg wrote about the nursery  school nearly 30 years ago in Infant and Child in the Culture of  Today still holds true: "The nursery school may be interpreted  as "a reaction to the psychological needs of the urban child, beset by the restrictions of modern  life . . .the cultural complex in  which he lives has both shrunken and expanded to an almost  fantastic degree ��� shrunken by  the confines of an apartment  without brother or sister, at one  extreme: expanded by the space  defying, technologies of radio,  motion picture, telephone, automobile, and^^ airplane.'' (Today  we might add television, and  thatmost stimuiatirig of all educational children's television programs, Sesame Street, which is  now being shown on the CBC.)  In   older   times,   with  larger  families, the, authors point out,  someone  was   always   near  to  look  after  the   preschool  Child  and take him by graduated stages into, his widening world. Today the family is smaller, the  home more restricted, the outside world more dangerous. The  burden of  the preschool  child,  falls mostly on the mother, and  the nursery school provides  a  safe, stimulating environment so ;  that they  can  get away from  each other for a while. This is  one;, oftlje _no_t; valid reasons,^  Afor. sending aK child to nursery' ,  ;'''s^hbo^la_^':X;viftKihk no mother  should feel guilty about it.  In recent years, though, a new  element has entered debates  about nursery school. Burton  White, who has been running a  preschool project at the Harvard School of Education, has  identified a striking shift of interest, unprecedented in history,  toward the first-three years of  life. One effect of this new professional interbst has been to  make more middle class parents  nervous about their young children's schooling. Does preschool  education; give a child a head ,  start so that when he gets to  regular school his intellectual  development is ahead of other  children?  Should one shun the traditional nursery school, with its emphasis on music, art, and groupi  play in favor of something like  the   Mohtessori   system,   where  the child works, step by careful  step, into an orderly comprehension of space, numbers, letters,  colors, and often learns to read  at four?  The Montessori system is based on the pioneering work of  Maria Montessori, an Italian  doctor, who worked with slum  children in Rome about 60 years  ago. She discovered that these  children, whom many people  thought were retarded (today  we would call them culturally  deprived) could be taught many  things at an early age through  the special educational materials she invented. Her materials  are in fact the basis of many of  our best educational toys.  In recent years the Montessori  system has become popular and  there are schools using this system in a dozen Canadian cities.  A Montessori school emphasizes  self-discipline more, and free  play less ,than the traditional  nursery school, although in fact  the child gets many of the same  social benefits he would from  any well-run school. My impression is that Montessori schools  ��� are better suited to some children than others: very active,  aggressive little boys for instance, may have trouble unless  the teacher is very skilled.  One of the most promising  movements is the parent participation preschool movement;  there are over 200 parent co-op  nursery schools in Canada, and  more are being started all the  time. The Quebec Council of  Parent - Participation Preschool  Centre has its own teacher training center at Baie d'Urfe.  Nursery . school expenses are  supported almost entirely by  parents' fees ��� which mostly  run from about $25 to $40 a  month for a half-day program,  depending on whether or not the  program is subsidized. A few  progressive apartment developers have provided buildings for  day nurseries and nursery  schools. A more frequent form  .of subsidy is the use of facilities  ^iri a neighborhood churchfor a  modest rental. (Even this can  cost the church a lot; the Church  . of the Messiah, on the fringe of  downtown Toronto, recently  spent $i8,000 renovating the top  floor of the parish hall to meet  provincial day nursery regulations.)  In fact, if you can find a reasonably priced" nurseiy school,  close to home, you're lucky. And  if you're the kind of person with  enough push to start your own,  the place to start is with the provincial day nursery branch', to  find out what you're up against  in the way of fire and health  regulations; in the eyes of government, these come before all  considerations of intellectual con"  tent.  Or you can pack up ypur  youngsters and move to a city  where the board ot education  will do it for you.

Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  In the September-October issue of Canadian Consumer, president of the Toy Testing Council  of Canada, Mrs. A. R. B. Lawrence, stresses that the responsibility for the. protection of  children lies not only with toy  designers, manufacturers and  legislators but ultimately with  the parents. She then offers  some safety suggestions to con-'  sider when buying toys.  When purchasing rattles and  similar infantJoys, Mrs. Lawrence suggests that you avoid  the thin brittle plastic because  it is extremely splintery and  dangerous when broken, besides  the parts of the noise-makers in  the broken rattle can be swallowed. Be sure that any visible  bells and balls incorporated into  infant toys are of a size top  large to swallow should they  become detached.  -: Check to see that the wheels  of push arid bull toys are securely fastened and will not pull off,  leaving a sharp, exposed axle.

Metal cars and trucks should  be examined for sharp edges  as these can give nasty cuts;  wooden trucks and toys should  . be fastened with screws rather  than nails which can work their  way out and become a potential  hazard.

This age group has no.wjay of  understanding the potential fire,  shock and burn hazard, or even  Nurses show  need for better  health services  The Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia remains concerned about a number of problems in the delivery,  of health care services in the  province and made its views  known to the minister of health  at a meeting in his office this  month. :'���-���''���  The association-recognizes the  need for adoption of efficient  and economical methods for the  deli very/ p. health care services;  and was gratified to learn tne~  government view that nursing  services should not be an issue  in necessary budget reductions.  It is the association's opinion,  however, that recent budgetary  restraints have resulted in levels  of nursing care that range from  minimal to frankly unsafe in  many hospitals and health agencies in British Columbia.  The Registered Nurses' Association believes that establishment of a comprehensive intermediate care program is vital to  economic and adequate delivery  of health care services in British Columbia. Such a program  has been urged by this association arid by the United Community Services of the Greater  Vancouver area. Establishment  of intermediate care facilities  would free acute care hospitals  and extended care facilities from  the care of patients who do not  require these more expensive  srvices.  The provision of home care  services throughout the province  was another means advocated  by the Registered Nurses association to reduce the need for  institutional ibeds. The RNABC  delegation was assured by the  minister that this program will  be given top priority in the planning of health care services.  The association has. long advocated that nursing education  programs should be conducted  under the aegis of the department of education, with schools  of nursing operated by hospitals  being phased' out wherever possible. The RNABC delegation,  therefore, urged that the budget  of a hospital phasing out its nurs  ing school be sufficient to compensate the nursing department  for the staffing component previously contributed by students  in the nursing school. This would  assure adequate clinical facilities for students of educational  institutions planning to initiate  nursing education programs.  EGG ON FLOOR?  Dropped an egg on the floor?  But it's not a mess to clean up  any more. Cover the entire egg  with salt and pick the whole  thing up with a paper towel.  Everything will come up in a  jiffy.  the potential of an electrical outlet, and should riot be given anything that needs to be plugged  in. A simulated piece of _quip-  ment with an imitation cord terminating in a suction cup or  magnet is equally satisfactory  for this age of make-believe..  In the article on "Safety in  Toys", Mrs. Lawrence reminds  that any toy can be unsafe if  given to the wrong child at the  wrong age or if it is misused. A  marble, for instance, can mean  hours of play to a nine-year-old  boy and death to a baby.  Parents should be aware of  the dangers inherent in some  toys and when there is a wide  age span between the children,  Coast News, Dec. 16, 1970  the older ones must be taught to  keep many of their toys out of  the reach of the younger ones.  Finally, the Canadian Consumer; article stresses that the balloon, that most innocent-appearing toy, has been known to asphyxiate children who inhaled  instead of exhaling while blowing them up. It is important to  see that children are never allowed to put a deflated balloon  in the mouth and that those old  enough to blow them up are  warned of the possible danger.  In the end, the burden is on parents to see that they and their  children take care.  nttnuBninmuuinmHttniimnunnnttummuuittttnra  -Cr  Photostats  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS  and other required paper.

The beer  that  with you.  KERATITZKSr  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S TEACHERS  ARE NOW COMMITTED TO  "UNNECESSARY"  The B.C; Teachers' Federation has beer, negotiating with,  the Provincial Government for oyer 18 months in an  attempt to improve the worst teachers' pension plan in  Canada. There are many injustices in the present plan  that need to be corrected, and this has been conceded  by experts brought in by both sides. The question now is  ... when is something going to be done about it?  In a referendum conducted, by the Federation on October  30,197Q... British Columbia's 23,000jteachers were ;  asked if they were prepared to back these negotiations :'  with strike action if "substantial improvements in pension  legislation are not introduced to the 1071 session elf the  Legislative Assembly".  WHAT'S WRONG WITH TEACHERSPENSIONS?  Put very simply, we pay more to get less! Teachers in  every other Province get a better deal than we do, and  so do federal and provincial civil servants. Under the  present plan, B.C. teachers pay an average of $500 per  year into the pension fund, with the Provincial Government contributing $200 per year for each teacher. On  retirement, teachers receive an average pension of $250  per month, after an average contribution period of  30 years.  This is approximately 30% of their average salary... less  than half the 70% of final salary defined as "adequate"  by most experts.  COST TO THE TAXPAYER? NOT A CENT!  The Government is not being asked to increase its  contributions to the teachers' pension fund. The improvements we are requesting can easily be absorbed by  the money already in the fund, which now totals more  than$165 million; and is growing by more than $18 million.  each year. The $6 million paid out annually in teachers'  pensions doesn't even use up the interest on the fund.  Teachers are only asking for a fairer share of their  own fund.  WILLTEACHERS ACTUALLY STRIKE?  Yes, if necessary. Teachers are determined to get abetter  pension plan. However, negotiations are proceeding now,  and it is to be hoped that the very strength of the teachers'  case for a better pension scheme will achieve a decent  and reasonable settlement without any necessity for work  stoppages. Why, then, has this advertisement been  placed in every newspaper throughout the Province?.  Because we feel, as teachers, that we have an obligation  to inform the public, and to explain why if became  necessary to take a strike vote at all.

Testimony and E__bortat_on  Tne_��Uy     Service 7:00  With once a month Special  EvangeUsticService  At the Elphinstone School graduation in September, 1970,  many students and parents discovered that no one knew the  meaning of the school's motto,  "Cause Causit." In fact, there  was even some. mystery as to  what language/was used.  As local experts were unable  to shed any light on the mystery  the school wrote directly to Lord  Elphinstone who had authorized  the use of his family's crest and  motto by the school. Lord Elphinstone reported that his family's motto had indeed puzzled  many people^ and as a result his  grandfather had made a considerable effort to investigate it.  Lord Elphinstone advises that  the motto is not written in Latin,  Old English, or Old French; hut  in Old Scots. He indicated that  the Scots of that day appear to  have 7 spelled and pronounced  their words quite differently to  what we do today. Lord Elphinstone! cites as an example the  Old-Scots use of language, the  fact that they used "it" in place.  of "ed" as a word ending.  Realizing this, the Elphinstone  motto���when written in modem  English would state Cause Caus  ed. Lord Elphinstone indicated  that his grandfather had added ^  an "it" to the end of the motto  to improve clarity of meaning.  Therefore the motto would state  Cause Caused It.  One can interpret this motto  to infer that once a person had  made a decision or embarked  upon a course of action he must  be prepared to accept the results of such action be it good  Or bad. In other words, we determine our own fate by the de-.  cisions we make.

The matter came before  Thursday night's school board  meeting when Supt. R. R. Hanna  piloted the recommendation and  obtained the board's approval.  In outlining the areas where  co-ordination could be effected,  Mr. Hanna said there were 108  secondary schools in the province, four universities, eight regional colleges, 10 vocational  schools and two technical  schools.  Not only are schools involved.  The apprenticeship and industrial training branch of the department of labor, Canada Manpower, industry and adult or  continuing education projgraim_.  What is sought by the Trustees  association is a board similar  to the universities and colleges  Academic board which would operate at the lower education level and provide similar necessary cohesion between all units.  Overlappings and inconsistencies involved are admission requirements tp, the numerous institutions, reciprocal counselling  services, duplication of space, ~  equipment and personnel between secondary and vocation-  al schools.  The master plan to achieve improved co-ordination would be a  provincial authority responsible  to the council of public instruction, through the minister of education.  8      Coast.News, Dec. 16,1970.

County  Court, up to $3;000. Supreme  court, no limit..  'There is however, more to  ^jurisdiction than-, this. Jurisdiction refers to whether or hot a  court has the power to hear a  case. '7  ��� There is also geographic jurisdiction.'. Each smallclaims division court,' will have jurisdiction over a certain area of land  ��� and/or water��� or for that  matter, the. air space above it.  Each county court has a similar limitation, namely its own  county. In some cases there is  more than one court registry in  the county and a person suing  can pick the most (convenient  one for him. The supreme court  of British Columbia has jurisdiction throughout the province  but not beyond it.  There are of course numerous  exceptions and qualifications to  this entire area of our law ���  for example,1 all7mechanics' lien  claims of whatsoever monetary  size are heard in county court.  Certain matters cannot be sued  for in small claims division or  county court and must be heard:  by the supreme court. These  are actions for:  1. Maliciious prosecution.  2. Defamation of character.  3. Seduction  .4 Breach of promise of marriage.  It is not practical (but possible) to sue in county court or  supreme court without a lawyer  For any special problems regarding ��� jurisdiction in these  courts, a lawyer should be consulted.
