This is not a concert   It is  His talk, emphasizing the importance" of eye safety, was  supported by a short film showing the removal of a metal  splinter from the eye of an injured mill worker. He told his  listeners that last year, eyejn.  juries cost, $250,000 and that  there was an increase in such  injuries of 43 per cent above  1961. Although vulnerable, the  eye is the nv��st"3easily protect*  ed part of the body, be said.  t. Stressing  protective eye s&ielHs. &Ir.  Watts-demonstrated the advantage of safejty lenses for glasses wlncii "arii' almost indestructible yet add no], _more': than a  couple of dollars to the normal  price of glasses. "A. recent survey reveals an increase in eye  injuries in all walks 6. life,"  he concluded;  Representing Local 297 of the  International Brotherhood Pule,  Sulphite laifii%Ptfefl��l_m Work  ers, lit, ��� Andy Knowles commended, the great strides taken  at the Port Mellon mill on he-  half of safety which, he said,  is in the best shape yet of the  past seven years endeavor.  Mr. Knowles also, expressed  the opinion that the recent appointment of Mr. Norm Rudolp  to safety representative was a  big advance and was already  proving beneficial.  Chairman of the event. Mill  ' Manager Ed Sherman, termina-  ,  ted the event by thanking the  safety committee for the good  ���<���'. job- carried  out  during   1965,  upon which, all concerned may  look back with pride. "We hope  to do even better during the  coming year and will make a  strong, sincere effort to reduce the accident rate," he  said. ,  Referring to the small disputes occasionally arising between management and labor,  Mr. Shermen said that in safety, both worked toward a common cause. We intend doing the  .best possible job;and,wall enforce safety even if we have io  take disciplinary measures, he  added. In this respect there  should be no chip on anyone's  shoulder.  a presentation of typical class-  teaching so that the parents  and others may know the objectives, values and procedures  involved.  Children from scattered communities will have an opportunity to meet and play with others. In this way it is hoped the  first step may be taken towards more unity of purpose  in music education and that is  to learn to play an instrument  and have fun in music! The  choral music program is well  established and it is hoped that  a similar meeting for choirs  as well as instrumentalists  ���"������"may^'takc place later this  spring.  Parents often wonder about  the Avicrd sounds made on instruments   at  home   and   per  haps feel that no good can  come from such squeaks and  blasts. It may come as a pleasant surprise to hear tbe children in ensemble and find out  that there might be a more  pleasant and worthwhile purpose behind these endeavors.  Furthermore, children need the  support and encouragement of  their parents as well as the approval of their friends. Let us'  help motivate these children by  coming out and supporting  their efforts.  The growth of choral and instrumental music in this province has been rapid and astonishing.  Results obtained by  Jfor two ��� months every year  ^vhile all other trades attend  for ode month.  * With 44 apprentices, the mill  had to schedule 54 months of  vocational schooling per year  .Without- upsetting the normal  'Shop complements.  . In-plant training necessary to  .prepare apprentices for their  terms at vocational school  necessitated drawing up of  I'lnplant Tr aining Outline"  booklets for each trade. This  Was dene by Ray Delong, the  division's training coordinator.  In addition to co-ordinating the  departmental training and apprenticeship training, Mr. De-  long acts as the apprentices'  counsellor for on the job problems and interpretation of company policy governing apprentices. He also acts as tbe liaison between the company and  ft  Happy return  CRASHING shortly after take-off last Thursday afternoon from ThornMll Creek, popular pilot Bill Bry-  son was rescued early Friday after spending the night  in the hills between Thornhill Creek and Port,Mellon.

Tragedy sometimes mars the  season when safety rules are  ignored, and children���and adults, too���fly kites too close to  electric' "power"' lines'^ "*" " y  Here arc a few simple rules  for thoso who fly kites: y��� ���  First, always fly kites in open  fields, well away from electric  power wires, transmission tbw-  cj-s, and highways.  Second, never use any kind  of metal In making a kite, aiid  be sure that the attached string  Isn't tinsel.

Nature of the terrain proved  difficult; for the local planes  and it was finally decided the  helicopter would be most suitable in effecting a rescue,when  approximate area of the missing plane was established.  Taking off from Porpoise  Bay on it's second attempt, the  machine -spotted the crashed  plane within ten minutes and  immediately landed,, to find  the missing pilot safe' ancl'air  most unscathed, putting tho  finishing (ouches to a pair of  \  iod of acute anxiety^ for Mrs.  Bryson as well as lor numerous friends who quickly'rallied  around. Although greatly concerned, fellow pilots who were  aware of Bryson's , capabilities  as a pilot, were , confident he  would be found alive, nevertheless, an air of suspense grew  until his safety ^yas reported.  In an interview with The  Timqs, later," Mr.' Bryson said  the plane was completely demolished but he was able to cushion ,the impact by striking  wing first.

As a result, for the first three years of its existence,  the united colony haid two supreme, courts!  Needham said the aboli*    ~   .      "   ~  Mr  tion of Vancouver island's supreme court was not provided  for in the terms of union. Judge  Matthew Baillip Begbie of the  British Columbia Supreme  Court said the union destroyed  the old colony of Vancouver  Island and all its institutions.  Governor Frederick Seymour  advocated amalgamation of the  courts^ '"&dir "as "'��"" Wmpro'ftiisf;'"'"  gave each chief justice sole  jurisdiction of his own part cf  the new. united  colony.  The   controversy   was   unsettled fcr three years: Then the  legislature....ruled...that   on  the   death or resignation of either  Begbie or Needham, the survivor would have sole authority.  This came about in 1870 when  Needham resigned to become  chief justice in Trinidad, and  for hie services there he Was/  knighted. '  . He had come to. Vancouver  Island in 1865 from London  where! he had been called to  the bar. When he health gave  way he decided to travel and  he succeeded David Cameron  in the s. nior judicial post. During his term in office he once  travelled to the Cariboo when  serious trouble thi-eatened over  a claim-jumping complaint on  Grouse Creek. Only his tact  prevented bloodshed, it was be-  lievedr He died in England at  the age of 83 in 1895.  Scows ������  SECHELT TOWING  & SALVAGE LTD.  Heavy Equipment Moving  & Log Towing  L.

Letters to the Editor must carry a signature and address, although a  pen-name fuiy be used for publication.  Credit where due  Editor, The News  Sir���Re ^ the West Sechelt  waterline^-otedit where credit  is due���the workmen on that  -project have made a very fine  job of it. It has also given  more space at that side of the  highway _ |or_r.pedestrians^ to_ __edit  walk. Before tHey had to climb used,  a tree when a car was coming. It, is also a worthwhile  venture' that was badly needed.  Congratulations.  I myself was, behind the  door when grey matter was issued out. But who ever thought  up or drew up the plans for  the project was only issued  tjiree fifths of four ninths of  the grey matter I have.  Why was not a two inch line  taken across the highway at  every road allowance to feed  all houses on the other side?  The way it stands a line is  cut across the highway for every house. Eventually a new  surface will be put on the  highway, and,a new home will  go up. Oh! Oh! another cut  across . the highway. The final  out-come will be a cut and a  bump every fifty or sixty feet.  At the rate of growth this will  happen in less than ten years.  I cannot give credit for that.  W. FLAY  and taste of an audience To assume that this is what is wanted.

Every  voice helps but the fight to suppress lewd magazines, obscene  pictures. and filthy jokes sometimes seems hopeless. As you  say,, the average person deplores the prevalence of these  conditions but feels helpless to  do anything about them.  * We vcanv raise our voices anyway, and I, for one, protest the  use of dirty stories told under  the guise of entertainment at  some of our local functions. It  is an insult to the intelligence  RED CROSS  IS ALWAYS THERE  WITH YOUR HELP  Moral support  Editor, The Times  Sir���Irhrough your paper, we  wish to thank the many people  who helped in the search for  our two boys, Wayne and  Brian. Also those who were  ready to join in the search at  the time the boys were found.  There were so many people  ~Aoo many to mention and  thank personally. It is heartwarming to realize that so  many people, even those we  don't know, were willing to  help. Wonderful neighbours  and relatives also helped in  the search ahtf giave us the  moral support, we needed at  that time.  We're happy to say the boys  haven't suffered at all from  their Ordeal, in fact it probably  bothered them less than it did  us and all those close to us.  Once again, may we say a  sincere "Thank You".  HELEN &  GLENN  PHILLIPS  ���With Your Neighbours  ANOTPER old friend of Sechelt has passed on���Mr.  *    _Wchie Cawley^ a^  9.

Many who might have read the methods  by which the defenceless creatures are slaughtered, probably discredited such stories as impossible, for after all, since the days of con-  fleeritration  camp   bestiality,   civilization   has  fobliterated brutality. This at least is the happy  |^situation, we thought existed.  Those who witnessed actual movie shots  1 j6f the atrocities tarried out behind the flimsy  ffacade of modern culture, must surely have  experienced acute shock to see great hulking  brutes clubbing extremely attractive and  friendly baby seals to death. Some of the more  callous mercenaries actually ebmeqeed cutting  open and skinning them while stijl alive.  In the event of a race of savages forced  to kill for food and clothing, there would be  some excuse. Should the seals be a serious  hazard to the welfare of genuine fishermen,  then humane methods of extermination would  be the answer.  The present reasons and methods are inexcusable and provide ample grounds to justify  claims that we are indeed a decadent society  sinking to depths of degradation generally  associated with barbaric Dark Ages.  Since the whole sorry situation has been  publicised and exposed, certain action has  been taken and some charges laid. It is a foregone conclusion, the fines, if any, will be trivial  and the carnage will undoubtedly continue.  This is not a time for kid glove justice.  The Western world has been shocked at these  revelations which will not be quickly forgotten,  and any repetition should be made impossible,  there is no place in our desired way of life for  depraved brutality. Drastic penalties are called  for and should be instituted without delay. It  is inconceivable that such morons should be  permitted to carry on their nefarious occupation under the guise of making a living. Work is  not so short that they have to become engaged  in depravity of this nature as a means of  making a living.  Every man to his own trade, that is not a  trade, it is an astrocious crime against all that  civilization stands for.

E  __EowelLJBkerJQueen is_becoming more apparent,^a;y_to.t<;aie you\;_1JJ3____ _  A report has beeto received  that garbage is being brought  in to Egrnont by 'private cars  from outside districts and be-  ,ing disposed of from the end  of the government dock. We  in Egrnont, ^ tajge>>, a certain  amount of pride in our community and certainly do not regard  it as a garbage dump. Others  should  do  likewise.  Put Profits First  WE were intrigued by the news note that the  Imperial Tobacco Company, one of  Canada's largest controllers of the manufacture  and sale of the addictive weed, is not content  with its present monopoly, but would like to go  a step further-  Imperial is going to reduce the number of  wholesalers from 900 to 675 outlets, to allow  more profits for the remainder. "Studies of  the present distribution system," said the  president, "clearly show that there are, in some  areas, too many wholesalers involved in the  distribution of our, goods in relation to the  total volume of tobacco business available,  :t6wpermit" such wholesalers to'coridticty an  efficient and profitable operation."  Now it would seem to us, as supporters of  the principle of free enterprise, that the to-  baccco wholesalers would be the first to discover this fact, and the first to do something  about it. What they would do is of course to  go simply out of the wholesale tobacco business  when it became unprofitable. / :  When we see a giant like Imperial doing  this thinking for them, we suspect that Imperial is not interested in the wholesalers so  much as it is interested in the possibility of  increasing its own profits by .the simple expedient of increasing* wholesalers' profits, then  raising prices to the wholesaler. >  PedicatioM Deserves Respect  REGARDLESS of whether one approves or  . ^.^..^disapproyes ,the. proposed school district  Referendum, there is little" dpuBt1 '^e:"'tnKtees'":  themselves deserve a big E for effort, and are  to be commended for the vast amount of time  and work put into the project.  In general principle, most of that involved  in the Referendum is badly needed, such items  as a new school board complex appears to.be  subject to some doubt, but'this too, in actual  fact Will definitely be needed in the not too  distant future. Already growth of the school  district'���.������has accelerated considerably.during the  past two years and school board ffiaff ��� is experiencing many inconveniences". With the anticipated growth during the next few years, problems will undoubtedly increased"    ""  Taking into account the monthly rental  which exceeds $200, plus maintenance, for  what is now inadequate accommodation, construction of a new building could well prove  an economic venture. i  From an educational poiqt of, vjew, we,  have to compete with areas such as the North  Shore, where funds appear to flow freely and  in large quantities. This puts a far greater  burden upon a district such as this which is by  no means a prosperous one. At the same time,  the future of our youth should not-be jeop-  arized due to inferior or insufficient facilities.  As our elected representatives, the trustees  shoulder a heavy load of responsibility for  which there is no monetary gain. As with all  people in public life, criticism is inevitable,  some of it is possibly warranted, but again,  we all make mistakes. Gn the overall picture,  a great deal is accomplishbd,and each trustee  in his or her own way is sincerely working toward a common goal '  During recent weeks, in order to acquaint  the public with the fullest possible details pf  the Referendum, the board has travelled the  length of the Peninsula, attending meetings  with various organizations, Committee meetings, special meetings and regular Board meetings have all taken a tremendous toll upon  the important thing is to vote. During past  years, extreme apathy has been prominent at  Tlef&eiMurh polls with as low as 12% turning  out to indicate their interest in an event of  major importance.  Three quarters of a million dollars is a  lot of taxpayers money for the Peninsula, it  certainly is not to be taken lightly. The trustees have done their part and the least they  might expect is that the voting public has  the courtesy to cast a vote. Whether it be Yes  or No, let us at least show sufficient interest  in community affairs to voice an opinion.  Minute Messages  "Most people are bothered by  those passages of Scripture they  do not understand; but . . . the  passages thai bother me are those  I do understand". '��� Mark Twain  ON WHOM WE SERVE  AN old saying is, if March comes in like a lion,  it will go out like a lamb. The Word of God  states in 1 Peter 5:8, Satan is like' a roaring lion and  Psalm 51 ;5 says "... I was shapen in iniquity; and  in sin did my mother conceive me." Romans 3:23,,,  ". . . All have sinned and come short of the glory of  God." John 8:44, "Ye are of your father the devil,  and the lusts of your father ye will do ..." These are  heart searching statements, even though many \yill  not want to acknowledge ihem.  In contrast to this, John the Baptist said of  Jesus, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away  the bin of the world, John 1:29".  ��� We come into this world like a lion, that ��� is,  only concerned about our own wants, yet through  God's grace,.we can leave, having the love of God,  \yhereby^we,��rc more concerned about tho welfare of  others more than ourselves, "Isaiah 64:6 .says. . _ nil  ourrighteousnesses are as fihhy rags,"' but 2 Corin-  thinris'5:17 says; ", , , If any man be in Christ, ho  is, a new creature;  old  things  ore passed  away;  -. .    ,,.,,.., . behold, all things are become new," Christ can even  their free time, und when people are dedicated take a quick tempered person and give him n lamlj"  to. this extent, they deserve the utmost con- like meekness, but it all depends on vvhom we wish  stdcratton and support. <o serve. *  ' Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, ^Rcv, Wf>'!. r S,/vckroyd, >  how to vote on the Referendum is their right, PcndefHarbour Tabernacle  th'tiiw'l;e  I Is r-.l f V s'it J rr rflsf'��i��i(l by Iho UqUpr' Cpnlrol Opirrt or by i>>e Co.ornrnonl al Pnli��>i Columlri*  ��� " .���r-l���v^Tt ���      -    ��� ���        ^r presenting *Wl  tSBSM  mm mimmii mm  BUBBLES; HOPS  i nrol i v.

The rapidly expanding industrial and business development  in the Powell Rivet area is resulting in an increasing number of fir eight-trucks, many of  them of the tractor-trailer variety, making use of the ferry  and also of the almost non-ex-  istant parking and attendant  facilities. At times, long lines  of waiting traffic extend from  the dock for a considerable distance up the highway and  around a blind curve, all on a  one-lane approach. It is only a  matter of time until a serious  accident with possible loss of  life will be the result of this illegal, but at present unavoidable blockage of ,the highway.  The heavier movement of  freight must also bring premature grey hair to the ferry personnel, particularly when, is  happens frequently, they have  to load numerous large trucks  and trailers on a vessel not  designed to handle other than  a very limited number of these  carriers. On one night recently  there were seven trucks, four  large tractor-trailers the  through bus to Powell River  and eight or ten private automobiles waiting to board the  last trip to Saltery Bay. Despite  efficient service on the part of  the ferry crew, and much juggling and no little cussing by  the drivers, it took almost half  an hour to load the vessel.  This is not an isolated case by  any means and conditions will  worsen with the approaching  tourist season and its accompanying boat and house-trailer  traffic.  A larger ferry that will accommodate large freight car-  -" riers as well as passenger-cars  should replace the 'Powell River Queen' and off-highway  terminal facilities at Earl's  Cove should be made available  without necessary delay. Increasing traffic warrants it  WHAT MAKES  ISABEL  RUN?  Had a short between-ferries  visit from Mrs. Isabel Dawson  the other afternoon. A few minutes to spare, a friendly chat  over a cup of coffee, then off  again. Always on the go, that's  Isabel. For a person who hasjio  official standing in our provincial government other than her  being a very prominent- and  active member of the Social  Credit League, Isabel has probably worked harder for the betterment of conditions in this  r!3I3^ than almost any other  private citizen in the district.  Her narrow margin of defeat  in the last provincial election  did not in any way lessen her  attempts to have needed improvements implemented. A  bundle of energy, yyith a home ,  and family to attend to and an  exacting and time, constim.ng  job in private life, Isabel Dawson still finds time for service ,  and community work in her  home district of Powell River  and will lend her suppdrt to  any worthwhile effort to imp-  prove conditions in the entire  : area.      '  Where Isabel finds time for  her many activities is a source  of wonder, as is the effort she  expends. Who aay3 women, are  ' tho weaker se ,;?"

KA few boats are out but they  aro a far cry from the numbers that used to fish every  cod-reef from  Egrnont to the  Gulf a few years back. A com"  bin.tion of wind nnd tide conditions, plus a shortage of bait,  Is probably tho main reason  for the poor showing so far.

The Sechelt  driver will then bring the American students to Pender Har^  hour.  The dance club is planning  to have a St. Patrick's Day  Dance on March 18th. We are  planning this event as extra  entertainment for the exchange  students.  Many mothers and some fathers visited our school on Education Day, March 9th. The  Future Teachers Club did a  very- good job of escorting the  parents to various classrooms.  I am sure the afternoon was  enjoyed by everyone.  Say You Saw It In 'The Times'  TEEN OF  THE  WEEK  We have selected Allan Wal-  laSeTfor "this week's "Teen of  the Week". Allan has always  been a very popular student  and is very well liked by everyone. He is kept very busy���  he usually writes this column  and I must say, he does a  very good job!  He is president of^th^ Annual  Club and is trying to get everything under control so the  annuals can be. published. He  is also vice-president of the  Dance Club -and is an outstanding member.  Allan was captain of the  basketball team this year and  ended up being top scorer for  the year. He is a very good  basketball player.  As one of his hobbies, he  plays the guitar, he has an electric guitar and amplifier of  his own and plays is very well.  Allan is in grade 12 this year.  As you can see he is a born  leader. We all wish Allan the  best of luck for the future  and I know he will be a great  success.  Charity doesn't always be^  gin at home.

There is also the realization that the old people who  cannot or will not change, will  eventually die off.  It is perhaps understandable  that to the bureaucrat or the  social engineer this mode of integration seems _not only practical but also humane. Thus,  the sincerity -of the architects  of this policy is not *There in  question. But one "must question the assumptions' upon  which it seems to rcsf. Namely, that Indians, ought to be  attracted .to the white way of  *llfe;' thatThdians, once processed, will not want to' return to  the reservations and will be  equitably accepted into white  communities; that integration  is a one-way street.   ^.JL&Js.,,^  must be a two-wSy street paved  with the enduring macadam of  equality. Which is to say that  the white community must look  for and discover something to  admire and. desire in. the Indian way and the Indian as a  human being--just as4t .is presently assuihed that'the Indian  ought to be attracted |o white  cultura and ought to fiiid some-  lowing questions:  ���Withiri the communally oriented Indian culture there \yere  simply no concepts of employment, money manipulation,  real estate or commercial competition.  Has Indian culture changed  to accommodate these concepts9  If so, to what degree and in  what way?  Within the feudally oriented  white culture there was no concept of an uncompetitive, communal society, no appreciation  of religion other than the  Christian, no concept of meaningful work other than employment or commerce, no concept of security other than the  material, no concept of freedom other than the politico-economic.  Has white-culture broadened  to accommodate concepts more  inclusive  than  these?  If so, in what way and to  what  degree?  The unlegal Indian mind was  apparently incapable of confronting cupidity with anything  hut unbelief. Treaty after treaty was agreed to, solemnized  and accepted as final, only to  be, subsequently, broken and  dishonored by whites.  Why does the white practice  of dishonoring treaties continue  to this day?  Since the dynamic and dominant white culture intruded upon Indian culture, the burden  of responsibility in the areas  of inclusive understanding and  sensitive appreciation must  rest principally upon white society. Yet the aggressive-dogmatic nature of white culture  has been productive of humorous historical examples of monstrous arrogance and has resulted in policies dictated solely by egotistical blindness.  Typical of this myopic tendan-  cy was the policy of conversion; a policy which rested on  an assumed, superiority and  which proposed to change "pagans" into useful Christians  and "savages'* into servile civilians  Has white culture become  less blind? More visionary?  More tolerant?

INTEGRATION of Canada's Armed Forces is proceed-.  ' ing apace. For those irritated Admirals, irate Generals and infuriated Air Marshalls who have had to resign it tiiay be going too fastTBuflothe averag~e-���ana-  ' dian integration makes good sense. At last our defence  budget is under control and an effective force is being  forged out of Canada's old Army, Navy and Air Force.  ,   Canada's experiment, for that  is what it is, has attracted a  great deal of attention abVoad.  This is obvious from the frequent visits to Ottawa of delegations from the United States,  Britain and France. Often they  come to criticize. More often  they go away to write learned  articles  on  the  advantages  of  Jm^mitWWIWfVWWWWWKVWWWMWVWMI  No Cents  In Waiting  ��� . . Let  The Times  Classified  Make You  Money!  [The Times  Phone  885-9654  integration from both a technical and economic point of view.  Canada, as is often the case,  has been forced to take this  step. We have no conscripts in  our Armed Forces, only volunteers. Ottawa therefore has to  pay more to get them and to  keep them in uniform..Pay and  allowances have therefore tend^  ed to get out of hand. Cut  backs have laeen necessary in  other places and this meant  cutting back our outlay on  transport  and  equipment.  When the Pearson administration took over in 1963 it  was faced with two alternatives. Either it could cut out  buying new equipment altogether, or it could cut down on  manpower and start equipping  a mobile force worthy of the  name.  The then new Defence Minister Paul Hellyer chose the latter course. He began to streamline his organization. A lot of  the brass had to go. Overlapping services had to be done  away with.  PAYS OFF  In overall dollar terms this  has paid off. Mr. Hellyer has  held  this  line.  Canada's  total  defence expenditure still rounds  at around $1.6 billion a year.  But, in the context of a growing economy this is not so bad.  We now spend less than four  per cent of our total national  income on defence. The corresponding figure in the United  Kingdom is seven per cent and  in the United States 10 pet  cent.  A���booming���economyy���how--  ever, presents its own problems. Industry is bidding for  skilled help. Men with trades  now get tempting afifers. A  qualified radar mechanic ge*s  $6,000 a year if he is a married  man and a sergeant. Private  enterprise, however, is offering him between $8,000 and  $10,000 a year for his talents.  No wonder that 21,000 out of the  26.000 leaving Canada's Armed  Forces over the last 18 months  have been in the highly trained  category. No wonder, also, that  Mr. Hellyer is having to offer  special $200 a year bonuses to  keep key men in the forces a  while   longer.  The opposition in Parliament  has been pointing to what it  calls the dreadful state of morale in Canada's Armed Forces.  This may be true of the more  highly paid ranks. But the  great majority, faced with private industry and the defence  department both bidding for  their services are bound to be  happy. Nearly two thirds of  them voted for the Liberals in  the last election. Apparently  they are not afraid of integration. A more popular image is  also helpful in boosting their  sense of being useful to the nation.  t     _  r.

Our resources are not inexhaustible,' and British Columbia is one of the last resource  outposts of North America.  Since most of our land acreage is unproductive we must  be careful to protect our river  valleys. Only two percent of  our land is arable. A plane trip  over the interior of the province  on a clear day proves this.  We   are   fortunate   that   wc  have a laboratory adjacent to  our boundaries in which we can  foretell  the  future.   While   observing   our   neighbor   to   the  south,   the   United   States   of  America, we can see the unfortunate misuse of resources.  By observing, what has happened and is happening,1 we can in  many casts forecast) the future  with great accuracy in British  Columbia.   Since   the   pace   of  development is  now accelerated, often the warning is short.  There is no,,need.,to make certifiable  mistakes  In the  management of land resource.   In  the handling of our resources  we   must   remember   unborn  generations  have   a   claim   on  the resources of British Columbia equal to our own.  The one fundamental fault In  this government', thinking Is  its belief in the "B. yth of Superabundance." This myth still  stfdks the halls of our Legislature, and it Is a myth which  must bo abandoned.

It is well-staffed and well-  equipped. What is more important it is ours. It was brought  into being by  a  hard-working,  civic-minded, group who worked  day and night to bring it about.  The   people   of   the   Peninsula  threw themselves wholeheartedly  behind  it  and  voted  overwhelmingly    to    shoulder    the  cost. Even now they are talking about adding another storey  to accommodate more beds and  also a chronic care wing. BoUi  will be needed.

March 16, 1966  report  ���The Times' Ottawa Bureau  "UNION workers in Quebec have been noticeably deaf  v .to the siren calls of separatist agitators. The separa-  ���^tjsisfliliemsreh^^  _ failure to appeal to the ordinary, working class French-  canadian. ��� ���-  �������'���  _ This <Joes._ not mean however, that Quebec trade unions  don't want to have their own  specially-adapted Organizations.  In���.the field of labor, as in  politics and culture, there is a  turning Quebec desire to resist " domination by English-  speaking majority groups, and  to develop home-grown structures.  - This is part of the background to the open conflict that  has broken out between the  Canadian Lab'or Congress and  the Quebec-based Confederation  of National Trade Unions.  On the surface, it is an unequal contest. The CLC, with  more than 1,200,000 members,  is the central labor body for  Canada. The CNTU has about  186,000 members, nearly all of  them in Quebec, and fewer  than the CLC has in Quebec.  But the CNTU is aggressive,  militant, ambitious, and is  growing rapidly, partly because  of its unabashed raids on membership of Quebec unions affiliated with the CLC.  It has the CLC on the defensive, just as the Quebec Government has the federal government on the defensive. The  parallel is fairly close. Even  though the CLC President,  Claude Jodoin, is a French-  Canadian, his organization is  accused of favoring federal or  English interests at the expense  of Quebec.  ONLY VOICE?  The CNTU, like the Quebec  Government, pretends to be the  only true voice ol Quebec.  ��*sLate��ftin-'.February, in the  same week, both labor organizations presented briefs to the  federal government Some  philosophical differences were  immediately apparent in the  presentations.  The CLC, for example, was  concerned about regionalism,  decentralization, and favored a  strong central government for  Canada.  The CNTU, on the other  hand, emphasized decentralization, and was concerned  about some aspects, of federal  economic policy- which appeared. Jo infringe on ^ovincial  rights. .  Philosophical arguments  may be - pursued calmly and  peaceably. Real fighting doesn't -start until a specific issue  appears, and it already has.  The issue involves 600 CBC  Stagehands in Quebec, who are  nonrepresented by the International Alliance of Theatre  and Stage Employees (IATSE),  a CI>C alteliate:  , The CNTU canvassed the  membership and succeeded in  winning a vote as bargaining  agent The trouble began when  application for certification  was (made to the Federal Labor Relations  Board.  TURNED DOWN  The board turned down the  application, on the grounds  that the CBC, and other national companies, should deal with  employees uniformly across the  country.  -Th&re are four union members on the federal board-  three appointed by the CLC,  one by the CNTU. It was apparent to the CNTU that whenever it as a union organization  was in conflict with tho CLC,  it could not hope to get a favorable decision from the  board. .  The CNTU officers made this  the chief point in thojr brief  to the government. They threatened to boycott the Canada  Labor Relations Board unless  the board is made bilingual,  and unless tho effective control, by the CLC was removed,  The federal Labor Department asked time to consider  these demands, and further  meetings were to bo held.  ���._..,., But4ho>'' CLC��WBs��.not*Bo��dlp-  lomatlc; Following an executive meetinghere, President  Jodoin fired off a statement  that amounted to a'declaration  of war on the CNTU,  Ho accused tho Quebec organization of, making a deliberate attempt to disrupt labor  ' legislation ,, and, collective ,, bargaining practices In Canada,  And bis criticism went beyond  labor matters,        '  The CNTU, ho said, was also  ' trytyg to 'undermine the whole  structure'of Canada . . , with  a'deliberate attempt to cut tho  tics ittiqt bind people of varlouh  provinces   and   racial   back-  ,, .grounds ..together ...as ;_ Cnna��  dlans."  Jodoin   also   said   that   tho  CLC represented more workers  .in Quebec than did the CNTU.  The CNTU policy would lead  to wage differentials among regions.  FROZEN WAGE  Workers in Quebec, for example, would see their wages  frozen and would be unable to  overcome, the wage gap with  Ontario and other provinces  which now exists.  He predicted "chaos." For  example, a small group of employees in one locality could tie  up a trans-continental railway  system.  "The Canadian Labor Congress will fight this with every  ounce of energy we command,"  warned Jodoin.  It may be assumed that the  CNTU will fight equally hard.  What does seem clear is that  in the makeup of the federal  labor relations board there is  a built-in disadvantage to the  CNTU.  On the other hand, abandonment of the hard-won right to  bargain on a nation-wide basis  would surely bring hardship to  workers in poorer provinces,  including Quebec.  This could be the biggest  problem the Federal Labor Department has faced in many  years. It has all the aspects of  the wider problem in Canada���  Canadianism versus Quebec-  ism, English versus French.  Its resolution, certainly, will  be no simpler than the resolution of the larger Canadian  problem.

Gargrave (NDP-Mackenzie),  during debate on Attorney-General Bonner's estimates, said  the institute might be run in  connection with the UBC law  school. He said the government  should provide something like  $50,000 to assist the attorney  general in research into law.  He said with the tremendous  expansion in the province there  is a chronic shortage of lawyers, and research into law going on now in the U.S. might  prove of value in B.C.  Easter Seals  MEET MISS Mildred Mpiiw, age 6.4 years of 759 Williams Road in Richttipnd, B.C.. recently selected as  this yearns -^Taxxm^-^j^^c of Crippled Children ;for  the Coming Easter Seals Appeal. Mildred was born with  Spina-Bifida, a crippling disease of the spinal column.  She wears braces, uses crutches, and is presently undergoing some therapy treatment. Her brother's name is  Ronald.  But what a^ change in the  people!  Old records in the provincial  archives show that the population of the two Crown Colonies  of Vancouver Island and British Columbia in 1866, by the  most generous estimate, well  inside the 65,000 mark.  And today we're nudging two  million.  No census had been taken in  1866. But it was thought there  were at most 7,000 whites on  the island and 18,000 Indians.  On the mainland, whites and  Chinese. were said to number  10,000 maximum and the Indians 10,000.  The number of white people  took a drop every winter because many of them were gold  miners who scooted south from  the Cariboo and Fraser gold-  fields, with,the coming of snow.  The,two colonial governments  in 1865 had total budgets smaller than most municipalities today. B.C. spent $676,810 and  Vancouver  Island  $351,300.  More than half the colonial  revenues   after   the  two   colo  nies merged in 1866, came from^  customs  revenues.  There were duties to be paid  on most food items and many  manufactured items brought  into the colonies.  Vendors of spirituous liquors  paid excise taxes that contributed another huge block of  the revenues of the day. A licence to operate cost ,$100 for  six months in the townihd $30  in the country for a like period.  Opium sales to the large  Chinese population were legal  and the government collected  from this nefarious trade. A  licence cost $50 for six months.  A dance hall could be licenced  for $200 a year while a banker  paid $400. A miner's certificate cost $5 annually.  ,.. Gold was still tiie, mainstay of  the industrial wealth .o��- the  land. In 1866 an estimate^$3.l5v  to $5 million was dug from* the.  earth. Coal however was of increasing importance, especially  to the ships of the Royal Navy  who   for   a   year   had   made  There were about ��� a dozen ,  sawmills gnawing tt the timber  wealth-of the new united colony. Lumber from 3.C. was going to Australia, the Sandwich  Islands '(Hawaii) China" and  South   America.  There was no militia law in  British Columbia but there  were two volunteer rifle companies drilling, one at Victoria  and one at New Westminster.  Paper money was being issued as notes of the Bank of  North America and the Bank  of British Columbia.  Silver and gold coins in circulation were either from  England or the United States.  But the English coins had to.  be "translated" to the dollar  scale.  One of the most serious lacks  cf the colony however lay in  the field of education. On Vancouver Island there were only  404 children in common schools'  and 419 in private schools. No  reliable figures were available  for the mainland���but it was  certain the situation there was  not as good.  Notes from Pender  ���by Lorill Kilborn  REGULAR meeting of Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital was held on March 9 at Madeira  Park Clinic. In the absence of Mrs. J. Love, first vice-  president Mrs. D. Philip presided.  Final  plans  were  made  for  the Spring Tea, which will be  held on March 26 at the Community Hall in Madeira Park,  at 2 p.m. There will be a sale  of home-baking, aprons, plants,  mystery parcels and greeting  cards, a white elephant stall,  door prize and raffles.  Added attraction again this  year, will be an exhibition of  paintings, the work of students  of Mrs. Stephanie Hooper's Art  Class, which will be of interest to all.  Mrs. T. Scales reported that  the Auxiliary Cook Book is selling quite well, and anticipates-  an increase in sales during tbe  coming tourist season.  Next meeting  will  be April  13, a 2 p.m. at Madeira Park  Clinic. New members are welcome.  FORMER   RESIDENT  Formerly resident in Pender  Harbour for many years, Mrs.  Muriel Hatt-Cook, now of Toronto, is on an extended visit in  the Harbour, as the guest of  Mrs.'Linda Andrews.
