 Provincial Library���  Yiqtoria,  B.  C*  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 27  Number. 13, March 27, 11974.  cost soug  Two important^motions wete  passed by Gibsons Voters association meeting Thursday  night last week, one asking  for council to find out what a  100 percent garbage collection  would! Cost in taxes. The other  motion seeks information from  the Department of Transport  about expansion of the float  area for Gibsons area. The  only known space would be  north of the wharf on shores-  line extending as far as George  Hill's repair shop.  These two subjects were discussed and supported by Giihh  sons Voters association at its  monthly meeting Thursday  night last week in the El_-  mentry school library. There  were 31 members present out  of a total membersftiip of 37.  The meeting opened under  chairmanship of Vic Eckstein  and heard school board chairman Mrs. Agnes Labonte discuss the school situation and  said the department of education thought the board, in  view of the feasibility study  recommendation, should consider a school at Seohelt. This  would ibe a 300 pupil school.  At present tthe (board has no  land except Crown.land for it  even though some land prps-  pects were outlined in the  feasibility study. Mrs. (Labonte  said no . indication had yet  come, from. Victoria to what  the  board   should . do   about"  schools.     r ,  ,Y\     '..'.,���,��� ������  Thie department had said it  would assume added costs due  to the .delay J.n getting construction started on Elphinstone - school. These costs had  already gone up 12 percent and  the board has been assured "  that if tenders are higher the  department would meet the  increase. Y  __es_ent ^ool, popidation  was 775 and will increase to  900 in two years and after then  will fall off_, In the event of  the Seehelt school becoming a  reality the 600 pupil school for  Gibsons would be; ampte How  much more money would be  necessary   If   the   900   pupil  yet been estimated.  Mrs. Labonte was of the  opinion a gymnasium' at Sechelt (would be of great benefit to students in that area.  Aid. William (Laing inquired  about community involvement  in the new school structurte.  He referred to the library and  Mrs. Labonte replied that if  the demand became obvious  the facilities 'Would be available and such added cc_ts'  would have to be taken care  of.-,    '  Aid. Laing discussed the municipal wharf problem and outlined the requirements the village faces in managing the  wharf. The main contention by  members of the audience was  the number of boats that appeared to be berthed there  permanently and wondered if  something could not be done  to remove some of them, to  allow normal 'berthing for in-  and-out boats.  The chairman argued there  was more junk tied up there  occupying space that should  be used by tourists. Aid. Laing  maintained that so long as  they paid their berthing fees  nothing could be done about  it. Aid. Kurt Hoehne said anyone wanting to add to the  float facilities should be encouraged.  On garbage colle&tion ' AlcL  Ho-hne said council wanted to  sound out the public to .find  jquV iwhaf- rw^:-w^nt^d4.;i  spoke of a collection contract  by tender which would be instituted on a taxation basis.  The present situation was that  some people used the dump),  some used1 Kelly's service and  others Were using' the Sunshine Coast Disposal Services  Ltd. This last collector does  the Regional District garbage  icolle;ction at a cost approximating $7.50 per year direct  taxation. .  most present thought Kelly  A show J of hands revealed  was doing a good job. A motion followed which asked  ���council to find out what direct  taxation   would  cost  for  this  Watershedr ft rip- -, -^iiJh8e&  real shocker  for  NORM PETERSON  Life member  About 70 past and present  Kinsmen and ���wives gathered  at Gibsons Legion Hall Saturday night to celebrate the 25th  anniversary of Gibsons and  District Kinsmen club  Highlight of the evening was  the presentation by President  Tucker Forsyth of a L__e'  Membership to Norm Peterson*  Norm joined the club in September, 1055 and has held every elected1 office in the club  at least twice. The award was  based on his service to the cluib  over the past 10 years. ^   j  He is only the second Life  Member of the Gibsons club.  the other being George Hun-,  ter, now a resident of VanderY  hoof,  Gibsons Aid. Ted Hume visited the. watershed recently,  which Mayor Walter Peterson  steadily defended against encroachment while he was in  office.  Aid. Hume informed council at Tuesday night's meeting  he was shocked with What he  saw, adding that it was unlbe-  lieveable what Gibsons people  were depending on for their  water supply.  He told council he'would like  to take every taxpayer up to  see what they had been depending on for water. "They  are living on a hope and a  prayer." He was shocked. He  had been very, very misled, he  said7 ; "   ''  7 -7  Aid. Hume made these remarks during reports from  committees after Aid Kurt  Hoehhe had discussed briefly  activity with the Regional  board on the water situation.  He added he had taken Aldi  Hume to the watershed' which  is at the top of Henry Road;  starting at the'corner of Reed)  Road and extending beyond  the power line. The trip lasted  two hours. While Aid. Hoehne  did not express himself as forcibly as Aldl Hume^ he has  never been a. supporter of the  idea it was a good watenshed.  Aid. Hoehne said he thought  all aldermen should be informed about the watershed situa-i  tion.  Aid. Hume's remarks were  received by Mayor Larry Labonte and Aid. Hoehne and  Winston Robinson. Aid. William Laing was not present.  Aid. Laing also covered the  same route with Aid. Hoehne  on a separate trip.  This watershed has been described by former Mayor Walter Peterson as being Gibsons  water supply and he defended  it every chance he could. He/  objected to the-proposed highway being taken across it because of its value to the village as a water supply.  $1,000 donated for minibus  ���Minibus Target $11.0,000 got  its biggest boost Saturday  when a cheque for $1,0007 was  received from ^Sechelt's Ijboyial.

How1-  LIONS 400 WINNER  This week's "Lions 400 Club  winner is T. P. Allen of Delta.  The ticket was drawn by Victor Walker.  ever, as a result of the delay  in the proceedings of the esti-7  mates it has become necessary to announce this program  now so that preparations can  be made for its effective implementation.  Among the incentives offered students are replacements  during summer periods in  government offices and new  inventive projects on an experimental basis for the government. Small businesses can  receive up to 50% of the wage  bill up to $300 monthly if they  had not hired students in the  past. -  The government will pay  up to $100 wages per week for  environmental cleanup programs. Regional districts can  hire students for a variety of  projects at $125 per week plus  il5% administrative costs. A  professions for tomorrow program provides $125 per week  for graduate students who. engage in career oriented employment.  The departmental officer to  contact in regord to this program.is: R.S: Pleacas, Employment Programs Section, Department of Labor, Parliament  Buildings, Victoria, B.C., telephone number 387-3294.  Sechelt bylaw  covers rink  Bylaw 136, calling for loan  authorization under provincial  government auspices to raise  $200,000 for the ice arena was  given three readings at last  week- meeting jof Sechelt  council.  This bylaw is a governmental requirement both federal  and provincial, to cover their  forgivable loans until such  time as the ice arena is completed. On completion the loan  is wiped put. The bylaw goes  to Victoria for approval.  Another matter affecting the  arena came up in the disicus-  ion involving the road which  will lead from the present village centre to the arena area.  JThis road will be a continuation of Trail northwards, swing  ing westerly to contact roads  already in existance in vicinity  of the arena.  Bleacher supports were considered when Hackett Park  was mentioned in Aid. Ernie  Booth's report on progress at  the park. Aid. Norman Watson  offered the suggestion that a  Sechelt made pipe structure  on which boards could be laid  (would be cheaper than purchasing the same setup elsewhere. Mayor Harold Nelson  "thought wooden bleachers  were cheaper than metal ones.  SELMA  PARK FIRE  Fire destroyed the home of  Mrs.' M. Doig, of St. Mary's  Hospital JR-ray department, at  about 4 pjm.

Gibsons council has referred the Tequest to its finance committee.  Garbage pickup  license granted  Sunshine Coast Disposal Services was given a. license to  go into the garbage container  pickup business in Gibsons. At  Tuesday night's council meeting Aid. Ted .Hume informed  council there was no reason  why the license should be refused.  The same request for a license made about one year  ago was turned down by the  council of that period.  Mayor (Larry Labonte said  that if the garbage collection  services (including Bob Kelly)  work well there will foe no  trouble. If not it would have  to come back to council.  Land for rink  passed fo village  Gibsons Winter club can now  go ahead with its plan to have  a curling rink. Council Tuesday night received a request  from the Lands Branch in Victoria that the /village send a  cheque for $105 to cover costs  of transferring the five acres  of Crown land nexfrto the Twilight Theatre on lease to council. Aldermen agreed with Mayor Larry Labonte that the  matter -ftiould be completed as  quickly as possible.  You are a nurse on the staff  of St. Mary's hospital and a-  long comes a letter from a Sechelt alderman asking what  facilities would you like to see  established in the Sechelt area.  You circulate the letter a-,  mong hospital nurses for their  suggestions. The nurses pass  their suggestion to Mrs. Dana  Kearney, acting director of  nursing who mailed them to  Aid. O.H. Shuttleworth.  Aid. Shuttleworth reads the  letter to council Here are the  suggestions: An indoor. swimming pool preferably with  sauna bath; tennis court; theatre both movie and live shows;  public washroom and bathing  facilities for tourists as well  as local people.  The letter continues with:  'And of .course, they all concurred that there is a lack of  males in the area.' Mrst.  Kearney wrote that she did  not know what council could  do about the lack of males but  perhaps the other ideas might  help.  Council after debate decided  tojjaERJeal to the ladies auxilr  iary of the Sechelt Legion  branch rto see what could be  done to help the nurses to a  better Social life.  20 dead frees  Arboriculture and lawn care  were subjects of discussion at  Sechelt's council meeting last  week when it was reported  that of the 30 trees put in the  ground on village streets 20  had died. Council decided to  replace them.  On the subject of the lawn,  Clerk Neil Sutherland reported that people were taking  short cuts to get to the door  of the Municipal Hall, thusv  tramping over the lawn. Council decided to construct some  sort of fence, leaving the materials required up to the buil<_-  er of the ilence to satisfy  council's  request.

The education industry  British Columbia government's attitude towards education when compared to other government operations  is a subject which should cause deep thinking.  When the word education is used here, that is precisely what is meant. Not administration, teachers or  buildings.  Our provincial government is not regarding education as a production commodity in line with its industrial financing ventures. These profit-making units help  swell government income and operate in the same way  as private speculation.  It may not be fair to compare government financial  ventures against education but there is still a connection.  The point is our school boards are still caught in the same  tight financial noose set up by the previous government.  The complaint is that money is being lavished more freely on projects set up for the benefit of increased income  for the government treasury.  A point' to be considered is what is education worth?  Does it offer any immediate financial return to the government? Government thinking seems to be as there is  no return to the treasury, keep the screws on spending.  To this there will be an immediate department protest. Yet you can recall how $30,000,000 was pumped into  the school system to benefit teachers through salary increases. The government is quite ready to look after  the teachers but is not that ready to show the same generosity in other directions affecting education. Teacher  votes are more important?  Hon. Eileen Dailly's White Paper on "Public School  System Directions for Change," notes that "the school  system is organized like an industry, with the department  of education as top management and the classroom teachers as production workers." That is where the comparison stops. There is no reference to the type of product  which should be produced. Nor on the dividends the  province would gain from a soundly educated student  body, an even greater dividend.  Where you have a large and varied body of school  trustees operating the schools it.is necessary to have'  restrictions on the allocation of money and how it is  spent. Teachers are well paid but there is something seriously lacking in the product turned out by them. Trustees, who are not as well paid, succeed in complying with  the somewhat harsh departmental requirements.  Discipline is a major factor in school operation and  it is not the desire to see what is known as armv disci-  pline,' although there is considerable educational value  in it. The discipline of the mind into the meaning of education is most desirable. A classroom well disciplined  ���gains more from education than any other type. If classes  were disciplined as carefully as trustees are things would  be better.  The White Paper says "We believe. that a major  responsibility of the school system is to provide a measure of success for every student. The fact that it fails  to do this in some instances calls for an examination of  the whole structure within which the student is expected to learn." The question is what "success"?  While the comparison between industry and education may appear somewhat forced, the argument contains  merit. Industry depends on education in order that it  can produce the required returns expected from the financial outlay. The same could be said of the educational  system. Is it producing a return for the money laid out  for it? The' White Paper says no. Let us hope the flood  of words the White Paper argument produces will be  productive of something which will show a definite understanding of the situation.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  Gibsons Kinsmen club celebrates the 20th anniversary  of its formation.

She attended Gib-  sons Elementary and secondary isjchools, a period at S.F.XJ.  also a session at CarenporttJ  Bible sldhool in Saskatchewan.  Her parents are Mr. and MrsJ  George A. Owen of Seaview  road!.  By  Maureen  Owen  I could start my story in  Vancouver, Canada, where my  original flight was delayed  and I had to be rerouted'  through Toronto, leaving me  a very short time to make  connections both in Toronto  and London. But I won't.  Tlhe real escapade begins in  Rome. When I left Vancouver  my ticket read: Vancouver -  Toronto - London via Air Canada; London - Rome - Abidjan  via Alitalia. Very simple!  My arrival in Rome was  late biy 30 minutes. I had only  20 minutes to make this last  connection and be safely ori  my way to Abidjan. I ran off  the plane, into the airport, up  the stairs to the Alitalia ticket agency, thrust my ticket at  one of the officials, then stood  there panting. A glance at his  watch, information neatly fed  into the computer, and the  verdict was announced, 'Flight  /closed'. They had over-booked  the flight and I stood watching  as the jet took off 20 minutes  later.   (It had been delayed.)  Well, what to do now. 'Go  see my friend at the end of  this row,' advised the ticket  agent. *He will get you onto  another flight.' Several minutes of waiting in line C then  'you're at the wrong desk. Go  to the one around the corner.  I was able to see this girl B'  almost' immediately. It was  Monday and the next flight  out of Rome for Abidjan was  not until Friday. She tried to  have me rerouted through  Paris or Frankfurt. No luck!  tit was her leaving time1 so she  gave my information to her  partner A and told me that  this girl would look into my  problem.. iSo I went to the end  of the line at A. I (waited a  half hour before I could) see  her "Look,' she said, 'I can't  serve you notw. Come back at  4:00.' It was about 3:45 p.m.  so I returned to the back of  the line thinking that it would  be at least 4:00 p.m. by the  time I got to the front again.  It was during all of this  waiting-in-line that I began to  laugh. And you would have  also if you could have seen the  situation. I was not the only  one in trouble iThere was a  group of about 10 Arabs at D  who seemed 'rather' displeased1  with the service! Their spokesman would argue to the agent  in French, then would turn to  his group for support, quickly  translating into Arabic. The  group would respond appropriately, converging upon the  agent in a babble of outraged  Arabic, shaking their heads  and -waving their fists. They  would fall back only when  their spokesman would continue the battle with much  countr-jbanging and ticket  waving.  Meanwhile a party of three  Greeks (hoping to get to  Athens) was left standing at  wicket B with no one to serve  them. After a half hour of  (waiting, they began hurling  at the agents as much abuse  as they could with their know1-  ledge of English. All to no  avail. ' They were ignored.  They finally came over to our  foooth at A. They crowded  around the front of the counter, yelling and pushing their  tickets into the girl's face. Just  then a friend called something  to them in Greek. The plane  they had been booked on was  loading. Picking up their bags,  they ran off down the corridor  I can't imagine what transpir-  ened on the way  ed when they arrived at the  boarding gate; without passes,  ibuit they were back at countier  A within 15 minutes. One of  them confided to me, 'Next  time I come here with machine gun and Ah -��� ah ah. ah ah!  I shoot them all down! He  made a sweep of all the Alitalia agents with his imaginary  gun.  71 continued to wait patiently  laugh and visit with the other  passengers. Paul, a student  from Iran, advised me to press  pny point." 'You've got to  sfcsream at these people,', he  ,said. 'It's the only way!' Anfd  he demonstrated his method  several times. I was too tired  ,to argue even if I'd Wanted  to, not having slept for 25  hours.  From approximately 4:30  p.m. to 6:00 p.m. the girl in  charge of rerouting worked on  any case She tried every possibility with no luck. She finally sent me downstairs where  they would arrange for a hotel room. 'And we will call  your hotel in the morning and  advise you which flight to  take.'  Oh, I could feel that bad!  Downstairs I waited in line a-  gain. (16 minutes) The girl  there was not going to give me  a hotel unless I had a definite  on-going fight. I explained  that the woman upstairs had  tried for one and half houiriS  to make some arrangement.  That didn't suit her. Sure  enough, after the half hour  of telephone calls, she found  a booking for me on Nigerilan  Airway�� to Lagos, Nigeria;  from where I could fly on to  Abidjan. The departure time?  3:00 sum. I've never $elt worse  about what should have been  good news! That bed had been  so close and now Fd have to  wait in. the airport. Further^  she' could , riot confirm my  flight .Lagos-Abidjan because  Alitalia has no communications with Camaroun Airlines.  She wasn't too upset. I could  always return to Rome if it  was impossible to pass through  Lagos !���/   ,.���.������'.���������  'Well,' thought I, T might as  well see if anyone knows  where my luggage is.' Since  I had had very close connections all along, it icould have  been left at anyone of the airports. -  The man at the baggage  check 'was the epitome of nonchalance. He assured me that  my cases were probably already on.their way to Abidjan  and even if not, , they'd get  there sorme day or else Alitfalia  would pay me for their> cost  plus the cost of the contents.  Nothing to worry about He  did agree to pass on a message  that if my suitcases arrived  later, they should be transfer-  ed -to Nigerian Airways. He  picked up the phone, dialed,  and carried on in Italian. For  all I know he said, I have an  idiot woman on my hands here  - how's your day been?  Since all hope of sleep was  gone (the airport had no .  couches; only single seat,  straight-back, plastic chairs), I  went back upstairs to ask for  a meal ticket. There, I was  shuttled back arid forth between two desks. One man  would only say, 'Go to information.' before I had even finished my question. Then he  would leer at me with clenched teeth. I supposed he  thought it part of his job to  be friendly as well as helpful!  At information I was told  ���where to go to send a telegram  to Abidjan, advising them of  the new arrangements. The  telegram office informed me  that such a message would  cost $10.00. I 'had heard that  airlines .were supposed to pay  for such in a case like mine.  Back to information. They absolutely would not pay for it.  Was I crazy?  And .hen I asked for a meal  voudher. The girl didn't think  I should get one because real  ly, I had had lots of time to  oateh my flight out of Roime.  That did it! 'Do you think I  want to stay in Rome?' I yelled, 'I have not slept and now  have to wait here until 3:00  a.m. I have had nothing to eat  for 10 hours! Do you think I  like it here?! No!! I know I  had lots of time to catch my  flight! But they told me it was  dosed.-: Your airline over-sold  the flight! ������ I got my meal  ticket..  After dinner I sent my telegram, visited with some Aifri-  cans in the airport (I was not  impressed with their knowledge of Canada), and when  their plane left, settled dbWn  to try to sleep even in those  uncomfortable chairs.  A gallant Greek arrived on  the scene attempting to 'hustle' me. I spoke with him for  a while before deciding he was  harmless. Off we went on a  tour of Rome. I saw the Mediterranean Sea and touched it.  I returned to the airport at  "2:00 a.m. where I learned that  the Nigerian Airways flight  iwas cancelled. I was being sent  to a hotel f!or the night witjhi  the other prospective passengers. We1 .would leave. for London the next morning and  hopefully, from there to Lagos.  A bed never felt so good and  morning had never before  come so much too soon.  1:30 p.m. the next day we took  off for what would be my second go-around in London. Out  of the number of people who'd  spent the night at the hotel  three of us developed a strong  sense of camaraderie; a gov-  iernment representative from  Manila who had spent five  days attempting to get. to Lagos, a Nigerian who was returning home for the first time  after seven years at the univer  sity in Washington, D.C- and  myself. We laughed all the  way to London, until the tears  rolled down our cheeks}, in  speculation of where we could  next be sent.  We arrived in London at  3:30 their time. Here we learned that our flight to Lagos was  with British Caledonian air- A  lines and would leave from  Gratwick Airport, about one  hour's drive south of London.  There is not a luggage transfer between Heathrow - and  Gratwick. We were all instruct  ed to pick up our own luggage  and take it out to Gratwick  ourselves. Since I'd left that  message with the baggage department in Rome to send my  cases on a flight which I never  in fact took, I thought 1,'d; better try to find'my bags in case  they were following me on  this goose chase. Heathrow has  three terminals and one must  ride a bus from one to the,other. I was in terminal 1 and Air  Canada in terminal 3. Off I  rode to terminal 3. Air Canada  had definitely shipped my  bags fo Rome. Now I must  check wh;h Alitalia, terminal 2.  Another bus ride. In terminal  2 I hunted down Alitalia's obscure claims office.

The commercial, production  of mushrooms began in Canada in 1-12. Since then it has  grown rapidly. Last year the  annual production was 40 million pounds. Ontario is the  largest producer, followed by  Quebec and British Columbia.  Mushrooms are available all  year in various forms - fresh,  canned, dried or frozen.

Foif sauces  gravies,   hors   d'oeuvres   and  salads, button mushrooms are  best.   Medium-sized   are  ideal  for   sauteing,   broiling,   slicing  and  chopping  and   the   large  size as a vegetable course.  - Look for quality fresh mush  rooms     with    tightly    closed  heads, short stems and smooth  white,   cream   or  brown   unblemished  skins.   If  the  caps  are open there may be a certain lpss of moisture, but not  of flavor or goodness.  Processed mushroohis are  sold as canned, frozen and  freeze-dried. Canned mushrooms are available -whole,  button, sliced, stems and pieces  usually in a 10-ounce size. In  some stores, diced, sliced or  whole freeze-dried'. hxushrooms  are available. Frozen mushrooms are sold in six and ten  ounce packages.  One pound of fresh mushrooms is equivalent to: one  quart whole; 20-&4 medium;  flive cups sliced; four cups  minced or chopped; two 10>-  ounce cans, idrained; one  pound frozen or three ounces  dried.  There are many ways to use  mushrooms - sauteed in butter  and added to an omelette or  scrambled eggs, fresh in a  saladi marinated as hor_;  d'oeuvres, or added to a soup  stew or sauce.

Canada has established sea  safety regulations which become effective July 1 and the  rules amend the Canada Shipping Act and'are the result of  widespread concern about the  frequent loss of life in recent  years from towboat sinkings  in B-C. waters.

WANT SOMETHING DONE?  You'll find the help yon need  in the Directory  British Columbia motorists  are reminded that they'll soon  be receiving mini auto-licence  tags for key chains in the mail  from the Tuberculous and  Chest Disabled Veterans Association.  Purpose of the mini-tags is  the traicing by the TB Vets of  owners of lost keys (OSGOOD  sets returned to date). Proceeds of the annual campaign,  wflaich provides employment  for TB Vets arid other handicapped persons, is used for  scholarships and research into  respiratory diseases.  As a result, search buoys  will be compulsory for tugs  above five tons gross.  Exempted from the rules  are log salvage boats, tugs operating in' sheltered waters  such as Vancouver harbor, or  in inland lakes.  Each search initiator buoy  must be radar reflective and  fluorescent orange in colorf,  and mus(t be equipped with a  radio transmitter, a flashing  light, an anchor line, a mooring rail arid a floating mooring line.  The radio transmitter will  automatically come into operation when the search indicator buoy is afloat and be capable of transmitting for at  least 48 hours on specified  frequencies.  The   flashing    amber    light  will be visible all around the  horizon for at least five miles,  and  operate  for   at   least   48  hours at peak output.

According to Joe Battis-  ta, the unit's production manager, filming got under way  last week on the first of the  26 episodes which will run  through, a segment every five  days, until next mid November. ���       i  The opening episode entitled  Benyon's Gbost was located  for the most part on Por.poisd  Bay. An innovation this season  is the floating dressing rooms  and equipment locker, a newly  painted white structure moored out in the bay to one of  Smitty's floats. This structure  will be a timesaver in getting  the   cast  and  crew on water  locations   and   save   the   long  trip up the ramp to Mollis  Reach.

Jack  Radford, minister of recreation  and conservation announces.  Collections will cease Sept. 9,  the same date as last year. The  camping fee will remain at $2  per night.  Sunshine Coast area parks  involved include Plumper  Cove, Porpoise Bay, Robertg  Creek and Saltery Bay parks.  The advancing of the collection starting date to April 1,  will enable the Parks branch  to exercise better control of  the camp-grounds, especially  those in the Lower Mainland  and on Vancouver Island  which are now being used) extensively during April, and  particularly during the annual  Easter school vacation. Lack  of gate-house. registration and  adequate staffing in parks in  April has caused overcrowding  in some campgrounds and the  over-taxing of facilities. With  the earlier collection of fees,  it is hoped to keep these projb^  lems within manageable limits.  The campground occupancy  limit of 14 days applied in all  park campgrounds is unchanged. The seven days docking  limit at Newcastle Island Provincial Marine Park and $2  per night docking fee instituted two years ago will be top-  tinued -as will the $1 per night  fee for cabin shelter accommodation in Mount Assirii-  boine Provincial Park.

A funny thing  (Continued from page 2)  The Alitalia officials were  in when I returned to their  bureau. They had no way of  knowing whether or not my  suitcases had gone on to AJbid-  jan, but sent a telex to Rome  (cancelling the first message  I'd left there.  Back to terminal 1, dinner,  the -drive to Gratwick and take  off for Lagos at 10:30 p.m. The  agents at Gratwick informed  me that I had little better than  a 50 - 50 chance of being allowed to wait in Lagos if or a  flite out. I had neither a Nigerian visa nor an advance  booking. But someone would  oneet me at the airport and try  to make arrangements.  4:20 a.m. London time we  touched down in Kano, Niger-  da. We had to remain in the  plane while we were boarded  by officials who inspected it.  They confiscated . two newspapers. (They're low on TJP. in  Kano!) I was on African soil  for the first time and tried to  whip up some feeling of awe;  but I was too tired. Three-  quarters of an hour after landing in Kano, we took off for  Lagos.  . We circled Lagos several  times before the pilot annouc-  ed that the hamarttan was too  thick to attemp a landing and  that we would have to go on to  AcCra, Ghana. At this word I  burst out laughing. Myself and  my two 'companions had a new  round of 'what next?' jokes.  We were permitted into the  airport at Accra, so I spent  about an hour looking over my  first display of African handcrafts. By 10:00 a.m. the hamarttan had cleared and we  backtracked for our second attempt  to land  in Lagos.  We  Is Your Sewer  Hooked Up Yet ?

Miss Ward saved me no end of  trouble. She walked me  Straight through the guards  and all, only repeating, 'in  transit.' She explained my situation to a trustworthy African and he agreed to come and  fetch me from the lounge at  2:30. Miss Ward also arranged  for my lunch. I had the one  and only specialty of the house  loomed beef sandwiches and  tea. Did I gobble them down.  Although I was again very  tired, I enjoyed my short stay  in Lagos. The Africans were,  very friendly! I fell into conversation with one man who  (wanted to see my pictures of  Canada. I brought them out  and the next thing I knew, a  small crowd' developed, all  pressing intensely over shoulders to glimpse the photos.  One of the washroom attendants (her job seemed to be  opening the door for anyone  who wanted to go in and closing it after them.) seemed  ivery happy so I told her so,  explaining how much happier  a place Lagos seemed to be  than Rome. We were laughing  together about several things  When another African came  over and commented, You are  happy!' 'Well,' I thought, I  guess I don't look as haggard  ias I feel.'  At 3:10 p.m. Lagos time my  flight to Abidjan left the  ground and at 7:10 p.m. we  touched down in that city.  This last leg of my journey  was uneventful...: Except for  the fact that I got off the plane  in Dahomey and got half way  through immigration, before  realizing I was. not in Abidjan.  Did I run back out to that  plane! At the beginning of the  flight I had asked the stewardess if it was direct to Aibidjian.  She sad 'yes', meaning that I  wouldn't have to change  planes. I had meant, 'Is Abidlr-  jan the first stop?'  Don Webster, Wycliff Dirv  ector for the Ivory Coast and  Esther Petermann were waiting to meet me at the airport.  That morning they had received my telegram from  Rome, saying Vd arrived the  day before. Don had wondered  at which point he should send  out notices, 'Maureen Owen.  Lost in the world!'  (Over a late dinner at the  Websters I told the story of  my trip. They commented, 'No  wonder you were so unconcerned When we found only  one suitcase at the airport!*  (I'm still waiting for the other  one). They have given me a  French African name: Dub-  riante. It means, 'take two  sticks, make a fire' and has  the connotation, whatever we  igive you, you will make do.  I will be flying to Man soota.  Announcement  ROYAL BANK  Gibsons, B.C.

Easter  Seal House, operated by the  B.C. I_ions Society for Crippled Children is open to disabled  children coming to .Vancouver  for treatment, and their parents. The house is also open to  disabled adults and their escorts. Easter Seal House is located within a block of the  Children's Hospital and the  VSancouver, General Hospital  which makes it easier for all  concerned. G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre and other  treatment facilities are also  close by.  The iSociety icharges $3 per  night for a small housekeeping room which includes cooking facilities. As with all its  services the small fee is waived if the applicant cannot afford the $3 rate. Easter Seal  Funds, now being raised across  B.C. and the Yukon support  upkeep and ��� administration  costs, in addition to subsidies  for those wiho cannot pay the  fee.  Easter Seal House is now  too small to handle all the requests which come in every  year. Over 700 disabled persons and their escorts used the  House in 1973, and more applicants than ever before are  expected this year.  The    society    therefore     is  negotiating with .the provincial  government   and   officials   ot��  Shaughnessy Hospital and the  Vancouver General Hospital to  arrange a land swap. A parcel of land on the Shaugihnessy  grounds may be traded for the  existing facility,   and the  society will build a newer, more  modern ahd larger Easter Seal  House.   Much of  the  funding  will come from the provincial  government, but many thousands of dollars will be raised  from   the   public   during  this  year's and future years' Easter Seal Appeal.

Coast Chilcotin  Many,Canadians know little  about the Canadian Indian.  Their only experience and  knowledge come either from  beer-parlour . encounters or  from Hollywood in the form  of movies where they are usually stereotyped as scalp  hunters and  undesirables/  History books and school  text-books have dbne a disservice to the Indian people  in the past and perhaps helped to contribute towards  school drop-out rate that has  not only been way out of line  but has also been indicative  of a school system that failed  to serve the interests of this  native minority group.  In the field of Indian Affairs the average person would  probably be surprised to learn  that there had not been any  formal . arrangement to respect the hereditary rights of .  the Indian people in B.C.  He would also be surprised  to learn that Indian' people  from 1878, just a few years  after B.C. joined Confederation, had been pressing their  case for a just and fair agreement to have their hereditary  rights recognized1.  -Little has been done by the  government regarding such representations. The force of a  white dominated government  and society gradually had the  effect of eliminating the interest that many Indian people had! in the subject of aboriginal rights.  However, recent events and  proddings by some of my colleagues such as Frank Ho!ward  (NDPnSkeena) and Wally  Firth (NDP- Northwest Territories) have helped to move  the government in the right  direction.  Recently an agreement in  principle * had been made between the Government of Canada and the Union of B.C.  Indian (Chiefs that the subject  of the Land Question -was going to be negotiated between  those two groups.  There is no doubt that a lot  of credit must go to those Indian people who kept this subject alive themselves over the  years. Without their persistent  voices such progress as is taking place would never have  occurred.  There is also no doubt that  a minority government has resulted in a more responsive attitude on the part of the government and members of the  NDP caucus feel justified in  trying to keep parliament in  operation until sudh time as  the government fails to respond to the needs of the people.

Of  these, 123 contained coded  wire tags. Each nose-tagged  fish was identified by the absence of the small fleshy f3n  on the back just in front of  the tall fin. Each tagged head  turned in paid a reward of $3.  Mr. P. Nassichuk of Powell  River and Mr. N Nishio of  Nanaimo were the two lucky  $1100 bonus draw winners. Mr.  Nassichuk's fish, a two year  old! chinook released from the  Capilano hatchery, Was caught  at Powell River. Mr. Nishio's  fish, a two year old chinook  released from the Nooksack  hatchery was caught at Har-  mac.  The distribution pattern has  hardly changed since the Oct.-  Nov. collection period. Canadian hatchery chinook, found  throughout the strait, primarily occupy the northern por-  12 Coast News, Mar. 27, 1974.  tions of the strait while American hatchery chinook still occupy the southern portions.  The most noteworthy phenomenon of the December-January  results was the enormous nun  bers of chinook salmon caught  off Powell River. The majority  of marked chinook from both  Qualicum and Capilano hatcheries came from this area.  Most of the coho salmon  were caught in and around  Saanich Inlet, a known winter  rearing area. Qualicum Hatchery coho are found (to occupy  the western side of the strait,  while Capilano Hatchery coho  move south and west and are  caught in good numbers in  Saanich Inlet. American coho  show in very small numbers  and four only caught in Saanich Inlet.
