Booth . expressed profound appreciation,  on behalf, of the trustees and members, to  Mr, Norminton who has served'three consecutive three-year terms as a trustee and  especially commended him for his work  on the construction committee. > '  In reply" Mr. ^Norminton stated that it  had been his pleasure ,to serve'as; a trustee witfr a group of dedicated and democratic people. Attendance at approximately 200 meetings had been 90 per cent.   .-  ADMINISTRATOR'S REPORT  Figures released in Norm Buckley's  report showed that in particular the aver  age number of out-patients treated per  month is rapidly rising. During 1965 which  was the hospital's first full year of operation, an average 311 persons per month  were treated; this figure includes nine  newborn, 38 short stay, 153 out-patients  ^  and 111 in.patients.  A previous report showed that the  monthly average at Garden ,Bay Hospital  was 78.  During 1965, 1,440 in-patients were  treated at St. Mary's; the but-patient department treated for diagnostic purposes,  1,838 patients and 462 emergency patients.  MEDICAL STAFF   REPORT  Df". R. A.

Replying to a question by Comm. Ben  Lang, Who sought advice on the subject,  the clerk said he felt we had an efficient  service at present which presented no  problems.  Comm. Lang disagreed, explaining that  the garbage collector, Sid Waters, encountered difficulty in collecting, payment  from a number of residents. "There is  also a number who, rather than pay the  small fee, prefer to dump their refuse,"  he said. "If we put Uie charge on taxes  they would be only too pleased to avail  themselves of the service," he added.  Acting Chairman Lorite Hansen agreed  with ....ippmm,. .JBeraer,^.ythp;.ijugg^ted_,.Uie^  gate to the dump be left open. "Those who  object to paying a small charge could  then dispose of their own refuse rather  than dump it indiscriminately," he said.  ...' Comm. Lang explained that, this had  been tried once before, the result being  that there were.those tod tired even to  take their-refuse to the dump, instead they  man Christine Johnson will have recovered,  sufficiently from  a  recent operation,  &>  be present.  School mill rate  VI Ps  visit  Peninsula  FISH  CRATES L . ff  The chairman announced that following    ricoc*   mil   mfcot  publicity in The times regarding previous   .MOOO  AJUl   UUOC1  council discussion on unsightly and smelly  fish crates at Porpoise Bay, he had been  notifed by Mrs. Mel Jeffries that she would  like it known tbe crates did not belong  to them;   .  Comm. Lang asked the clerk whether  he had written the owners of the offending crates,*but was told that he himself  had agreed to approach the owners.  GRANTHAMS BRIDGE  Council:of Gibsons, seeking improvements to the antiquated Granthams  .Bridge, asked for support of Sechelt Council. ���-.-.-��� ^���,��*.. ,  It was moved they be notified council  supports the request but suggests consideration be given to seeking action on an  alternative route through North Road.-  CONVENTION  SECHELT School District mill rate for  , 1966 will'be 25.65, an exact increase of  two mills over last year's rate. The provincial average for 1966 is 26.47. Government grants amount to $260,251 and local costs amount to $1,077,966, so tiiat in  )vthis district tiie government pays .-\pprox.  20 per cent of the'total costs.  Many homeowners will not be affected  by the two-mill increase as it will be offset by the $10 increase in the homeowner  grant. J  A person whose property had a market  value of $12,500 which would be assessed  at $5,000 would pay 5x25.65 which equals  $128.25. Deducting the homeowner grant  of $110 leaves a school tax of $18.25. Last  year when the mill rate was 23.65, tbe  same person paid 5x23.65 equal to $118.25,  less $100 which comes to tiie same amount  NOTABLE visitor last Sunday to the  Peninsula was Hon. Maurice  Sauve, minister of forestry, who met  with Sunshine Coast Rural Development Committee. From left rear, Joe  Benner, Sechelt; H. P. Gordon,-special assistant to the minister; Mrs..

Comm.  Lang suggested the  clerk, in    of $18.25.  accord with other municipal officers, a^-,'   .* Persons owning property with a greater.,  tend the annual Municipal Officers' Con-    assessed value will pay more in school  closed, he would be unable to go.  quisition amounts to< $984,134.  Early completion . . .  Park building plans  gain final approval  argument by Comm. Ray Clarke that a  set amount should be budgeted for park  improvements. He said he did not agree  with the present system of" including parks  in general expenditures, stressing the fact  that nothing ever gets spent on parks because the money is always used for other  purposes.        . )  The clerk explained that when certain  specific items arc budgeted for, the money  has to bo spent on that particular project  Big project  DESPITE  numerous  delays,   the  Hackett  Park   building,   approved   by   council  somjetimc last year, is finally scheduled for  actual construction, subject to approval by;  the department of public health.  Comm. Joe Benner told council he had  acquired three sets of plans and specifications for the building, but had been informed by the clerk that ho required 12.  Rather than delay the project further,  ho had personally  contacted  local builders together with ono outside contractor,  advising them that plans were  avuilablo  at tho village offjec.

Sechelt Phone  885-2171  9443-18  Returning to Nanaimo, Emily, who was  now about eighteen, met Robert 'Jeffries  who was then working in the famous Nanaimo coal mines and the couple were married in 1900. The years from 1902 to about  1905 saw Emily in Jervis Inlet where her  husband was logging; first, in Hotham  Sound, then at Deserted Bay. There were  also times in this period when they looked after the Sisters Rock lighthoiise on  Lasqueti Island during the absence of the  regular keeper, Bob's brother Alf; and  Mrs. Jeffries has many vivid memories  of the- wintry gales that battered their  rocky and isolated fortress. Then followed a couple of years in Vancouver while  husband Bob travelled up and doven the  coast cruising and staking, timber claims.  The next few years were spent in logging  camps on Lasqueti and in Jervis Inlet.  Bob's employment with the old P. B.  Anderson logging company in Bargain Harbour brought Mrs. Jeffries to Pender Harbour for a four year stay. In 1916 the  family, now increased by the addition of  five children, moved to Egrnont where they  lived on a float-house. In 1919 the Jeffries  went. up to Princess Louisa Inlet where  the next four years were spent before  moving back to Pender Harbour for another two year period.  Along about 1926, Emily, Bob and family decided to settle down and took up  permanent residence in Egrnont where  they became an integral part of the community. Of their original family of eight  children, five are still alive and are well-  Joiown residents of the Peninsula area;  Jim, Vera (Mrs. Josh Grafton), Don and  Edna (Mrs. Jack Howitt), all of Egrnont  and Joe residing in Sechelt.  Mrs. Jeffries husband, who, in addition  to his logging and mining activities, was  also a troller and part time fish-buyer,  passed away "in "1947'!.'" Wilfred/thi eldest "of  the Jeffries' sons, died in early boyhood  and another son, Allen, passed alway  shortly after returning from army service  in 1945. The late Mrs. Dora (Jud) Johnstone, well known resident of Saitery Bay,  was the eldest of Emily and Bob's large    the loth has produced a,few fair catches  of the V.I.P. treatment received by his  father, John, during John's recent sojourn  in St. Mary's had a decided bearing on  Dorhn's decision to go dowji. Sort of 'what's  good enough for Dad, is good enough for  me'.  The third patient was 12 year old Kerry Vaughan who suffered painful facial  injuries incurred in a bicycle spill on the  Egmont dock, Khpcked out by the ' fall,  Kerry was take nto the hospital for treatment and after being held for observation  for three days was allowed to leave. Just  remember, Kerry, it is easier and much  less painful to dismount from a bike in the  regular manner.  Mrs. Olive Porte of Sechelt is spending  a few days, up here in the banana belt, ^s  the guest of her very good friend Mrs.  Myrtle Dalton. Olive has the right idea; if  you are not fortunate enough to live in Egrnont the^ next, best thing is to visit here,  and that dive does frequently. ;���  Another visitor in our midst these fine  days is Mr. Carlos Chapman of Kooteiiay  Lake, B.C. Carlos has been visiting with  old time friend, Mrs. Nellie McKeague and  Tony Saulnier. Just getting away from the  last gasp of an Interior winter, Carlos?  Our community gals held a successful  rummage sale on Wednesday, April 20th,  added a few dollars to the club's funds  and Vi Berntzen won the door prize.. Funny people, these wives of ours. They get  rid of all their bits and pieces, discarded  clothing and other unwanted items to the  rummage committee and for the first time  in months there is a little vacant storage  space in the house and a fellow doesn't  have to hang his best (and only) suit on  the floor. Then comes the big sale day,  the gals go hog-wild, and next day the  empty space in the house is again^ filled  with (junk).�� Back goes your one and-only  suit on the floor. That's the way it goes,  but the women have fun and it Is all for  a good cause. At least, that's what they  tell me.

It has indeed been indicated that this is the one  reason for opposing the suggested expansion.  Should this be so, and they certainly have a good point, then there is all  the more reason to support expansion  of village boundaries. There are capable  taxpayers in Sechelt who, unfortunately,  lack either the time or inclination to  sit on council. While residents of West  Sechelt might complain that we have an  unsatisfactory council, it must be remembered that expansion would provide for representation from that area,  in fact thc potential is such that the  bulk of commissioners could be from  West Sechelt.  This is just one aspect, others include the fact that taxes instead of going to Victoria would come to Sechelt,  thus providing additional funds for road  work, park improvements and many  other facilities. To say that this is fine  for the village, is of course absurd, for  West Sechelt would then be part of the  village.  The economy of the village is excellent, taxes have remained exceptionally low  and expansion  would ensure  facilities for the youngsters. A community hall is badly needed; existing halls  are now far too small to cater to a, large  audience, while the, demand 'Increases  continually.  This does not mean we would get  these things immediately. They will  nevertheless be within the realms of possibility, and a new, progressive council  would be in a position to provide them.  Another objection, rising mainly  from personal reasons, is that certain  controls will be enforced regarding  building. There are those who feel it  should be their right to erect a shack or  whatever they chose on their oVvn  property. In most cases, these very  people would be the first to object  should a neighbor devalue the property  by constructing unsightly buildings, or  setting up a hamburger stand. This is  where a little control is necessary and is  greatly appreciated by most home owners. For every taxpayer who feels he  should be permitted to deface his property as he sees fit, there are a dozen or  more who value restriction on this respect.  We cannot fight our own destiny, the  Peninsula faces a tjremendous future and  it is up to the majority to make sure  our progress is hot retarded by the inevitable few.  Improve Driving Habite  RECENT revelations regarding lack of Ihcleedi anyone driving over Lions Gate  safety features and unsafe condition Bridge and through  Vancouver during  of a'number of automobiles has created rush   hour,   without   incurring  at   least  something of a bombshell within thc in- some   superficial   damage,   deserves   a  dustry, the result of which, will be higher priced but far safer vehicles.  The resultant investigation, while  not before time, has produced many  and .varied accusations and counter accusations which add up to the fact that  a spring cleaning of constructional  standards is definitely needed.  This does hot in any way suggest  our auto manufacturers are to be held  medal of high distinction. We see examples of careless driving in rural areas  but Vancouver boasts a full compliment, and the world's best driver would  Up extremely fortunate to survive a  week there unscathed.  We have every right to expect that  all possible safety features be incorporated into the manufacture of a motor  vehicle, at the same time, recognizing  responsible for all thc carnage on the    the fact that safety is a two-way street.  highways which has now reached mas  sive proportion. Hazarding a guess, one  might assume 'that 99 per cent of high-  Way accidents are caused by carelessness or plain stupidity on the part of the  driver.  It is all very well to claim a door  flying open on impact resulted in serious  or fatal injury, the simple fact remains,  thc accident should not have occurred.  If Cars were to be built like tanks, it  would not necessarily mean fewer mis*  haps. Human nature is far less reliable  than machinery and the safer thc auto,  thc more chances taken, thc faster they  are driven, and the . morons become  more moronic. :  The road habits of many drivers leave  a great deal to be desired and often  give good reason to ponder the fact  they ever obtained a licence in the first  place.  Heward Grafftey, a Quebec MP emphasized this point last week when addressing the annual meeting of the P.O.  Safety League, He said; "On thc provincial level, we must educate better  and safer-drivers, build better and safer  roads and insist on the regular inspection of motor vehicles relating to safety  factors.  "On thc federal level, it is thc obligation of the federal authority to bring  thc automobile and all motor vehicles  Ample proof of the  true cause t>f    uncfer, the rule of the law. The federal  "'"' '    '     government must order that all scientifically proven safety features be included in' all cars made or imported into  Canada."       , \  Graffty points out that wc arc seven'  tim. s safer in thc air than on thc highway, the reason being ...that millions of,  dollars have been spent on licencing  sa|'e pilots, air traffic control and navigation rcguhi. ions, arid building safe  aircraft..  Enforcement of similar regulations  in respect to the automobile would go  a long way to eliminating the present  high rate of highway casualties.  accidents   may   be   obtained   with   one  nerve-testing drive  through  Vancouver.

' '-  Casta vote  Editor, The Times: -   '  Sir���On,December 11, 1965, the taxpay-'  ers ol this, district defeated a school referendum/ Since__approximately- only 22 _per_  cent of the eligible voters cast ballots, the  ahove statement 'does not represent a' true  picture., A breakdown of the figures reveal.'a rough estimate of about 10 per  -ceht^f4h^total-voters-of-this-(Ustrict_wto���  have, in effect,- dictated that there will ,be  oo .building or expansion of school facilities jm this area. This should be a challenge  to those who would have "voted "yes," but  for yarious reasons failed, to vote at all.  ~    A post mortem on this defeated referendum disclosed that many agreed to the  necessary school building  and  expansion  program, but were in doubt as to the need  for a larger administrative centre.  As with a young and growing family,  who either expand their present home, or  move to larger'premises, so it is with the  school board. Ten years ago, in March  1956, the board found it had outgrown the  quarters provided in Mrs. Anne Burn's  home, and moved to tbe present site. At  that time there were three staff members  doing the administration work for 10  schools, with a teaching staff of approximately 35 teachers, and a school population oi 130^*students. ; ^.     . ���  During the past 10 years the-staff has  increased by one plus the addition of  three educational advisors, only one of  whom has the space in the present office.  Space is required also for the part-time  assistants to these advisors. Due to. lack  of room in the existing facilities, the district superintendent keeps our school district  records and data in his office in Powell  River board headquarters. Our staff presently looks after the business affairs of  12 schools, two of Which have additional  separate buildings added Within the last 10  years, and all of which have expanded.  There are 91 on the teaching staff, and  approximately 2000 students.  Your elected board of trustees studied  this growth of the district's school family  from all possible angles, using the advice  of impartial experts, a survey of other  school districts, and the department of  education policy, and reached the decision  that expansion was necessary.  :._,-.Convinced-that ^economy and efficiency  will be attained in a consolidated administration centre, your trustees are representing the referendum on May 5, 1986  with the firm belief that the ratepayers  will concur with the decision of the board  in this matter.  Whether we agree or disagree with the  decision oLthe board, the most important  aspect of this matter is to vote.  ���LESLIE  R.  JACKSON.

EXTENDED CARE  UNIT  Mr. J. E. Parker, chairman of the continuing care committee stated the committee had held two meetings, reaching the  conclusion that as the present hospital is  operating to capacity, additional beds will  will be required in the near future.  The construction of a twenty-bed extended care unit would alleviate crowding  of the present hospital.  A brief is being prepared for submission to the minister of health services in  Victoria outlining the need for such a unit  and requesting "approval in principle."  When this 'is obtained, it will be necessary to retain architects to supply plans  and estimates, These in turn will require  the approval of BCHIS, AH this will take  time and it is.\safe to say that construction will not be started for one yoar at  least.

Speaking of~the_incident laterrwitlrhis  surgeon, ' Richard Blanshard said: "Benson, ydu, told me" that all trails-led to the  fort, but you did not tell me they all led  away .from it." This was typical of the  disillusion that made his colonial career  a short'one./.    ' '  Vancouver Island had long <been controlled by the Hudson's Bay Company. In  1849 it was established as a crown colony  under the jurisdiction of the company,  which had undertaken a colonization program as protection against an anticipated  encroachment.from the U.S.A. Richard  Blanshard, a barrister and the son of a  London merchant, was sent out to appease  those who feared the island might become  a company empire." .',  Blanshard arrived in HMS Driver on  March 10", 1850: 'There was a foot of snow  in Fort Victoria. He had no secretary, no  troops, no servants, and only a loom,  though a cottage- was built for him later  at the corner of Yates and Government  Streets. His relations. with the company  and its facjtor, James Douglas, were bad  from the st^rt.I Blanshard was .disenchanted. Poor health^ and" frustfatipn hrouglit  about his retirement in' 1851 at age 34.  Richard Blanshard died in England in  1894 at 77. He had married well, and lived  a gentle life in his native land. But it is  unlikely that he ever forgot that James  Douglas, who�� had resisted his administration, succeeded him as governor.  Sechelt Peninsula Times  Wednesday.

The  meeting Was held and the ballots counted  at the Log Cabin on Joyce Avenue, Powell  River, B.C. Tony Gargrave, 39, was first  elected to the Legislature in 1952.  Gargrave said the election which has  been threatened by the Premier on more  than one occasion during the last meeting  of the Legislature was flippant and unnecessary. Gargrave said that he expected  a September election.  The local member said the significant  issues during the election would be morality in government, parks conservation and  pollution, the provision of proper chronic  care under the B.C. Hospital Insurance  Scheme, rapid implementation of Workmen's Compensation Act amendments,  and the provision of an automobile accident compensation scheme in British Columbia which would compensate all those  damaged and injured in automobile accidents on the basis of loss and not fault.  Gargrave said the present government  in Victoria had been in office too long and  had become arrogant. The threat to call  an unnecessary election, the refusal to  re-enumerate voters, the existence of political bagman like Mr. Williamson and Mr.  Gunderson, gerrymaking provincial ridings, legislation by exhausting night sittings, the refusal to provide a Provincial  Hansard, and the refusal to answer members' questions by ministers of the Crown  are examples of this, he said.

B. Pearson made it clear re*  cently at the Quebec City founding convention of the Federal Quebec Liberal Federa*  tion, that he is prepared to carry on ��s  leader of the party. He said he Was rfe*  solved to continue his work; to-carry on  for as long as he has strength and vigor  and the party wants him.  That seemed to pretty effectively rule  out any early leadership convention. There  is a minority group within tbe party that  would like to see Mr. Pearson- step dowtt  this summer turning the October conference of the party into a leadership con-,  vention. But it is a small minority. By  far the great majority wants him to continue at the helm throughout the centennial year.  There is a possibility that he might indicate in the summer of 1967 and he had  decided the time had come to go into retirement. .That would mean a leadership  convention in the fall of the next year  or the spring or 1968,  Four of his cabinet colleagues, aware  that Mr. Pearson lias no intention of  carrying on for another four 6r five years,  have quietly let it be known thW, "Barkis  is willin'." They include External Affairs  Minister Paul Martin, Finance Minister  Mitchell Sharp, Trade and Commerce  Minister Robert Winters and Defence  Minister Paul Hellyer.  All four were seriously considering  making the trip to Quebec City for the  founding convention of tbe new federal  section of the party.  Their plans became public knowledge  and at a caucus of the Liberal MPs just  ahead of the Quebec meetings there was  a protest raised. The Liberal backbenchers  suggested it was embarrass��ag to Mr.  Pearson and presumptious -of the aspirants  to be appearing to set off a~pre-leadership  convention campaign in Quebec.  _._ ^hejout members ^  the hint and dropped plans to make the  trip to the French-speaking capital. Mr.  Pearson went alone and got a tremendous  ovation at the dinner meeting he addressed  when he said he had no intention of stepping down for some time to come. He  joked with the press about i the noticeable  absence of the more ambitious members  of the Cabinet.  But overlooked in the speculative stories that appeared as a result, was the  name of Mr. Gordon. He is planning his  return to power within the Liberal party  carefully.  He has written another book. It is to  be entitled:  "The Choice for Canada���In-  depedohco -of Colonial 'Status./* -It -will-be  on, the bookstands in May. ,Mr. .Gordon'  hopek it,will'stir up a controversy in the  ���country, ah^partipularly within .the ranks  ^Jthq> Iberia, pwty oyer whit policy that  p&tty }sj.oulcL follow* ip the; years,.ahead/  Th^,sbook' presumably will' have a, strong  appeal" jjQ the left wihg elements within  tluj .Liberal party an4 to, nationalists.

That conference has  been called for Oct. 9' to 12 in Ottawa. It  is expected to be attended by' 2,000 delegates from all across Canada/  ��� Mr,. Gordon,, according to close associates, hopes to be in a position to exert  a strong influence on, the policy ' discussions in that conference. He ��� percipitated  the controversy in February Ayithin the  Liber&l caucus at Ottawa over* the1 question of whether to lift the six per cent  interest��� ceiling - on chartered bank lending, i   < ' ,  the former finance minister spoke out  at" the caucus against any proposal ,to lift  the six per cent limit. In this position he  had the support of a large group within  the caucus who are worried that, if the  party agrees io the removal of the six  p^r cent limit it will be immediately labelled, the party of "big business"-by the  Conservatives and the New Democratic  Party.  /  A cabinet committee is hoping to work  out a compromise. The solution it hopes  to come up with would give the banks  more flexibility in fixing interest rates  without removing tbe ceiling entirely.  Mr. Gordon's ability to exercise influence within the party has not been destroyed by his departure from the Cabinet  late last year. He was one of Mr. Pearson's closest friends and presented his  resignation to the prime minister on the  grounds that he had given the party leader bad advice in persuading Mr. Pearson  that the time was ripe to hold a federal  election. There had been suggestions that  Mr. Gordon was somewhat surprised to  find that his offer to resign was taken  up by the prime minister.

For example while the band  plays music which dates from the Renaissance period, the audience will be able to  Watch the Ndtiofial Film Board's beautiful  color film 6f Venice, "City out of Time."  One of these pieces, Gabrieli's Chorale St.  Marks owes its inspiration to Vertice.  4 Later in the program Dillon's The Far  Country will be teamed with another NFB  color film, "The edge of the Barrens" following the caribou migrations in the Canadian Arctic.

Lloyd is the eldest son of Mr. and  Majs. Ed Burritt of Gower Point. -He  graduated from Eiphinstone in 1958. He  studied music at UBC and was awarded  a Canada Council scholarship to continue  his studies in London. For the past two  years he. has been teaching at Rutland  in the Okagagan and last summer won a  scholarship to the famous summer school  of the Boston Symphony Orchestra at  Tanglewood, Mass.

Round the town

NOT BEING within spitting distance of
Viet Nam and wishing to live dangerously I decided to drive around the village
roads ignoring all risks. This is a very,
foolish thing to de because it does not take
me long to see. that the Commissioner in
-Charge- of—Doing—Nothing About Village-
Roads is more than doing his job and I
reflect that the peasants certainly can't
complain about him being on the ball. They
do not seem to realize it will take a lot

LAST SATURDAY was a special day
: for young ibowlers at Sechelt
Bowling Alley. Trophies were awarded and presented by Mrs. Q. Moscrip. Winners of the individual trophies were, standing, Laurie Allan
(girls' high average 91), Susan Jor- .
trophies
gensen (high 2-310). Sitting, Bobby

Frigon was not present to receive
the girls' high single—155.
of gravel ancl oil and things to make even
a small impression on the streets and since
all this stuff costs money it is easy to see
how much he is saving the pillage by not
having it done. *,
Anyway it was done once and our commissioner isn't going to be silly enough
to have the same thing done again because
the next batch of holes we get might not
be of such high quality as these could
possibly cost twice as much even if they
are paid for in full before they are half
done, or even started.
The uninformed citizens complain loud
and long about this matter but they do
not understand the fine qualities cf politics. All they know is about getting something fixed in the old fashioned way. This
is no good and will not last. I^ight now
we are looking for somebody to run for the
Commissioner of Doing Nothing About Village Potholes and if he is half as good at
his job as the Commissioner of Doing
Nothing About * Village Roads; we can't
call them streets because before you can
have a street you have to have a sidewalk,
each pothole will link up with the other
until the whole thing is one big pothole
and there will be no more problem. By
this you will see that pothole experts think
deep.
A lot of people who have nothing more
important to do than to find, money to pay
so many taxes that they hardly have
enough left over to buy Scotch whisky,
think there is nothing to this commissioner business. They are dead wrong. It is a
highly complicated piece of business especially when you have nothing to commission about. The office of Doing Nothing
About Dog Licenses is a fine case. What
would happen if hie were elected to Do
Something about them? Nothing, that's
what. Where would he start? Who owns
what dog? Nobody when it comes to paying
out good cash for a licence. Where is the
pound' and why isn't it^ You can easily
see that such an office would be most difficult to fill.
Another sad case is that of the office
of Doing Nothing About Sechelt Airport.
There are two flies that play on the end
of his nose during council meetings, a
he-fly and a she-fly and they must be married because they do all the things married people do. They are also very untidy. For this reason the Commissioner of
Doing Nothing About Airports we Don't
Have is thinking about doing something
about something and as soon as he finds
out what it is, he will make a start.
The   Commissioner   of   Doing   Nothing
About   Recreation   says   he   has   done   so
much he has worked himself out of a job.
He points out that despite all his efforts
there are now goal posts at Hackett Park
and if he has his way there will also be
a building there that will be a credit to
the   community.   This   goes   over   big   because if there is one thing this community
likes  best   is   credit.   However,   he   says,
it is hard to recreate something that has
never been created in the first place but
if he can get the. money he will try. This
causes a great silence to fill the place because if there is one subject nobody knows
anything  about  it  is   public   money   and
about   the   only   time   the   citizens   know
anything about it is when the auditors have
gone over the books and found that according to some peoples way of thinking two
and two make seven. Since we don't have
enough money here to make seven of anything we are quite safe.
Speakng in a general way, wHich i.s the
way all generals speak, wc are in.a good
position but we need at least , two more
councillors.
The first and most imperative need is
a Commissioner to Do Npthing About a
New Municipal Hall. He must be well-qualified and able to prove that during his
long and arduous life he has done nothing
for himself either. All he needs to know is
how to get- theabsolute least for the absolute most. Using other people's money'he
can do this quite easily if he works hard
enough at it. If it wasn't for tjie grave
danger of putting a good man out of a
.job we could sell the present hall to 'ourselves for a dog pound but this could be
worked out somehow. This is not as silly
-as-it-sounds -because if-we-can-got-enough -
for the old building we will have enough
to build a new one. Just drop a line to
Mr. Bennett in Victoria and he'll tell you
how it can be done; he's been doing it for
years.
The next post is to elect a man To
Make Sure Nothing Is Done About Garbage Disposal. This thing iCa^ady getting out of hand when people start complaining about stinking garbage atid rotten fish boxes lining our roads. How else
are we going to attract Nature's cjuidren
like bears and cougars?
Neither the people nor the Council of
Sechelt ought to feel too bad abput things
as they are; not if they can read the newspapers. Things are the same all oyer.
Even Parliament has its differences; they
haven't agreed on anything sincQ they
agreed to hand themselves an eight-thou-.
sand-dollar-a_yeaf boost which made them
feel so good they gave the old-age pensioners a boost too, six dollars a month,
and promised they would give them eight
thousand dollars if they lived that long.
By this it will be seen that Sechelt is
almost ahead of the early settlers. The
mark of civic progress we are told is
lights, water, sewers and paved roads.
The Indian Reserve has them right now.
Sechelt hasn't. Why?

I am, going to tell you in this column  Df one of the national projects about which  1 am quite excited. It is the Armed'Forces  [Tattoo, the big big cross-Canada "show  which will be presented by the department  bf national defence.  At the time of writing I am particularly  excited about this event because I have  fresh in my mind an advance look at the  program. At Centennial Commission headquarters recently Brig. C. Arnold Peck  and Captain Ian Fraser of the department  of national defence centennial planning  jstaff described the two-hour show���of  which there will be, 147 performances in  40 cities across the country���and provided  rstqrybc)ard;iillustrationsand; taped, ex.qi.rpts  pi tiiestirririjEf mUsicespecially composted  ^or the centennial.  ;'   I can predict; that, Canadians  will be  'given a thrilling' surprise .when they see  |he Armed' Forces Tattoo, which will be  |>ne of the highlights of the 1967 celebra-  lions. The advance presentation which we  saw and heard at Ottawa showed that the  forces'  project is  being conducted in  a  fiighly professional manner.;  ^    There will be 80 colorful selections in  12 major scenes of the Tattoo with static  ��>ands, marching bands, pipes and,drums,  ���scenes from history as far back as 1665,  naval gun-hauling race over obstacles,  drummer boy's idea of what war was  like in 1812, 150 sailors dancing a hornpipe,  hction scenes on the battlefield���even an  lictual World Wai*- II Spitfiffe^ih^ari enactment of a Battle of Britain "scramble."  .    The Armed Forces centennial team has  done research deep into history., through  the years to the period when the early  French  and  British regiments  were  stationed in Canada, and they have produced  not only the music of 7tBe regiments but  also  the servicemen's  songs  of  the  canteens  and  messes  which  also  have  been  sung by the citizenry of yesterday and today.  Research also has been done ��ror the  Tattoo in Europe by Captain Fraser for  considerationt,of the best military tattoo  productions arid techniques at Edinburgh  and on the continent.

OAPO was guest speaker- at  Wilson Creek Hall on Thursday, Aprir21  when members of Sechelt and Gibsons  branches united in welcoming him.     ���'  Mr. Yates, in a vigorous and stimulat>  ing address, reported to the members on  the work of himself and his council for  the .betterment of conditions for OAPs.  He said they had had some successes and  some failures. Reporting on his efforts to  get the Old Age Security increased .to  $100, he suggested that if the Prime Minister persists in his stand towards increasing the pension, a march on Ottawa should  be organized.  _.,_.._  "L _  Mr. Yates has also negotiated with the  provincial government in an effort to get  exemption from school taxes for people  reaching pension age who have aireadf  done their share of 'building schools, lie  has endeavored to get more beds in hospitals available for long-term care, but the  Hon.

Employment patterns^  in pulp and paper  EMPLCKyMENT,_generally_ throughout the  month of March reflected a steady pattern of activity in most industries, said  Millard Ross, Zone, office .manager of the  Vancouver National Employment Service.  At month-end, approximately 16,500  men and 7,100 women, a total of 23,600  sought employment through ;the Vancouver  offices of the Employment Service. This  was approximately- 900 fewer than February, but about equal with March a year  ago.  As additional logging camps opened,  some shortages of rigging, crews began  to develop in addition to other supporting  occupations. This also applied to miner  and mine tradesmen.  Employment in forest products manufacturing appeared to indicate a prevalence of labour stability, with only limited  turnover reported. A very good production level was maintained throughout most  of the industry, particularly among, pulp  and paper mills. .  Needs for tradesmen in the metals field  and for trained retail sales people accelerated, while requests for construction workers were limited. In the executive and  professional area, employment opportunities continued at a fairly rapid pace.  lf��*  To add wing ...  New courses to be offered  at BC technical Institute >  CONSTRUCTION of a new wing to British  Columbia Institute of Technology building in Burnahy, which will enable the institute to teach nine new technologies,  in additioirto its present 17, is expected to  begin within'the 'next month or two, it was  announced by L, R. Peterson, minister of  education.  Tenders   have   been   called   and   were  be available for the up-grading - and retraining of'presently employed technicians.

' ��� I..      .    ���   Festival of Logging  PNE special feature  SKILLS  and  status  of  a  logger  will  be  highlighted at the Pacific National Exhibition in its 1966 feature, "The festival  of Logging."  "The choice of the logging feature by  the PNE shows recognition of the importance of the industry and its men in B.C.,"  said W. D. Moore, past president of the  Truck Loggers' Association.  The PNE is constructing a special "Feature Attractions Area" on a three-acre plot  of liahd~ihrthe centre of; Exhibition Park  where this year's "Festival of Logging"  will take place. Three one-hour shows will  be presented daily at the PNE which runs  from August 20 to September 5, excluding  Sundays-. v   The. shows will highlight logging sporting skills which are in danger of becoming  forgotten as the industry continues to move  toward mechanization and mobilization in  the woods.  ���These skills include log birling, axe  throwing, standing block chopping, obstacle  pole bucking, pole climbing, power saw  bucking and pole falling.  Once an integral part of a logger's  working skills, these are now seen only  at loggers' sports days held annually in  scattered centres. At the PNE this year, it  is .anticipated that over 1,000,000 will  wateh and enjoy this spectacular event."  Union and management leaders are  working jointly to encourage young loggers  to take up the traditional skills and enter  the PNE 14-day event.  A committee has been working for  many months to implement all phases of  the loggers' competition.  Prize, money  totalling  $i5,000  wil| be  awarded to the top contestants daily, with  Championship First Place Awards, ranging from $600 to $200, to be presented on  Labor Day, the closing day of the 1966  PNE.  This show will be a prelude to a full-  fledged "Festival of Forestry" at Exhibition Park in 1967, which will be the PNE's  Canadian Centennial Show -featuring every  facet of the industry and which is expected  to draw participants from many parts of  the -world.-.It will be -the most ambitious  show of its kind ever attempted in Canada.  Tire saiety standards  aim of Consumers Assoc,  HAVE YOU ever wondered about those recaps on your car, particularly on some  stretch of road like that between here and  Langdale?  If so, you may be pleased to note that  somebody is trying to do something about  the problem.  Concern about the safety of re-capped  tires and the correct labelling of textiles  ^prompted two of the resolutions passed  at the annual meeting of the Vancouver  branch of the Consumers' Association of  Canada:   ������ ���**<���> ������      *-   <>���  The association will request the provincial and federal governments to establish national standards for all re-capped  tires, with the proper labelling of the conditions under which the tires may be safely used.  A second resolution asked for instructions on the care of each fabric to be given,  and;the fibre content to be named for the  , customer.  The resolutions will be presented to  the provincial annual meeting in Vancouver this month and will later go to the  national convention in Toronto.  Tidewater Players  plan July 1 float  TIDEWATER Players decided at thc April  17  meeting, to work  on a  centennial  theme for the July 1 float. ���  Discussing t h e current workshops,  everyone agreed,that they are both beneficial and highly enjoyable. It is hoped  that more members will attend to take advantage of what Is being offered.  At thc latest workshop held before the  meeting, Impromptu skits were again presented by members in groups of three, and  the,' improvement in ideas and ad-libbed  dialogue was quite noticeable. Poetry reading ' and a recorded extract from King  Lear were also oh the program/  The next meeting and workshop will take  place on May 15 at 8:00 p.m, in Roberts  Creek Hall. Guest speaker will bo announced later.  Federal action asked  by fishermen's rep.  A   PRESENTATION   was   made   to   the  House of Common fisheries committee  last week calling for an annual expenditure of $10,000,000 for the rebuilding of  salmon runs on the Pacific coast  Speaking on the idea was Homer Stevens, representing the United Fishermen  and Allied Workers Union of Vancouver.  In seeking the expanded program, Mr:  Stevens noted there was need to arrest the  declining salmon catch and that pollution  from forestry, mining and industrial operas  tions were having a severe effect on rivers.  He said more artificial spawning  grounds and rearing stations must be installed to expand fish culture programs.  Mr. Stevens also told the committee  the Canadian fish catch is some 40,000,000  lbs. in comparison to the combined Russian-Japanese take of up to 2,400,000,000  lbs, of groundfish.  Study and development should be en^  couraged* he added, to exploit other species of "grburidfislT such as dogiish" which  abound in B.C. coastal waters, but which  are considered a nuisance by fishermen.  He said other countries provide subsidies to establish markets for these fish.  returned to the department of public works  on April 15.  Mr. Peterson said the four-storey addition of 164,000 square feet would increase  the student capacity of the institute from  1,370 to 3,200 and would help to satisfy a  growing demand for technicians;  The institute opened its doors in the  fall of 1964. Its first class of graduates,  some 500 students, will emerge from their  two years of intensive preparation for  highly-skilled work this spring. Demand for  their services is so great, with very few exceptions, all have already received job offers. Their training has been oriented to  the application of theory, rather than  theory itself, and they are expected to  fill positions mid-way between engineers  and tradesmen.  Existing technologies taught at the institute are building, business management,  broadcast communications, chemical and  metallurgical, civil and structural, electrical and electronics, food processing, forest product utilization, forestry, gas and  oil, hotel, motel and restaurant management, instrumentation and control, mechanical, medical laboratory, medical  -odiography, mining and surveying.  The new courses which will be taugh,  either as new technologies or options to  existing ones are technical management,  food production, bio-chemical technology,  public health inspectors, medical records,  radioactive isitopes, diploma nursing, pho-  togrammetry and restaurant and catering.  The new technologies, and the amount  of expansion in the capacity of the old  ones, were decided upon by the Institute's  Advisory Council after more than a year  of research into the needs of industry and  commerce.  Mr. Peterson said he expected the new  wing would be in operation by the fall of  1967 to accommodate students in tbe new  technologies and the expanded existing  ones/r He ^said" further expansion southwards on the campus can be provided if  the demand for technologies continues to  increase.  The entire facilities of the institute will  Sechfilt Kinsmen  cienn-up anve  SECHELT Kinsmen launch into a clean-up  "campaign this weekend, offering householders an excellent opportunity to dispose of unwanted items presently littering up the home. ..'
