WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1,  1966   IOC  8  <���mBLW  !  i  i  recently, many people iound' their .'names  )'i were omitted from the'Ust and it was too '  late to do anything about it. To clarify the  j situation and possibly  avoid future inci-  " dents, Mr. Wilson offered to outline-proce  dure to P-TA members.  Each year the school board' prepares a  list of electors which is posted in various  locations in the school district on the 10th  day 1 of September, Any person wishing to  make an appeal with respect to the list  should file an appeal in writing with the  secertary-treasurer before September 20.  Appeals are then dealt with at the Court  of Revision held later in September.  I. No ope ever comes to the Court of Revision, said Mr. Wilson so no changes  have ever been made.  t Following the sitting of the' Court of  Revision, the list is certified as correct  and .no changes can be made until the following year. It is important to check the  list every "year, said 'Air. Wilson, because  mistakes may easily occur when the lists  are compiled.  .'In rural areas, voters have no recourse  .once the lists are certified correct. In vjl*  lages it is" possible to vote" after signing an  affidavit and obtaining a certificate of eh-'  gibilty to vote from the village clerk.     <  SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION  v*' MJc. Wilson warned P-TA members not  to be disturbed because school construction was not proceeding immediately after  the approval of Referendum No., 8. Various  procedure was -necessary before building  commences. Following a one-month waiting period, sketch-plans are sent to Vic:  toria for approval followed by working  drawings. Tenders are then called which  still have to be accepted by Victoria. We  are watched every step of the way, said  Mr. Wilson.  MEETING PROCEDURE  Offering advice to Sechelt'"P-T&:i"and'"  speaking as an outsider, Mr. Wilson suggested that minor business matters be  settled by.the executive leaving the regular meeting for more interesting and educational matters.  Commeh|ttnig.i_An.Jbe.).posiUpn^.of,^P;rTA'si.  as fund-raising groups tor the purchase of  school equipment, the secretary-treasurer  observed that the board was the guardian  of taxpayers and money and Often the  most essential equipment was purchased  for a school. Many worthwhile pieces of  equipment have to be rejected and unless; other;/means of purchasing them are  found it is many years before the board  .. (wn,provide ;them. ���,���...���..;'_ ,,..�� ..., ;,.,���_,;'��� .  |: a ; iRfltt^^  If meetings, usually a member of the puhlic  I only attends when there is an axe to grind;  I he commented.  I CONVENTION  [ Mrs. Nonnic Rathbonc and Mrs. Louise  j        t  Campbell gave full and comprehensive re-  T ports of their attendance at the 43rd Annual  l Convention' of   B.C.   Parent-Teacher   Fed-  j eration and brought back much literature  j"' for members to-peruse. They advised' the  } association that although it was "much/more  5 pleasant/or two members to attend, when  I It was election year and  the convention  j was held such a great distance away, it  i was advisable to send one representative  j only.  DONATION  j P-TA members  approved  a  motion to  j purchase equipment for the new booth at  Hackett Park for the price of $400 plus  t tax. This donation to ,the Village of Sechelt  is the culmination of many years pf hard  ( work jjnd effort on the part of a few dedicated members of tho P-TA and will help  provide a very welcome service to;sportlng  activities held at the park.

There  appeared to be no sign of any maintenance  taking place and as the swimming season  was close, the parents of young swimmers  were rather concerned. ...  Comm. Norm MacKay explained that  floats were indeed in bad condition; problem is, getting someone to repair them.  "No-one  appears  to   be  interested,V   he  said.   _... _ :.-.������,.:''.;'..  Comm. Sam Fladager suggested removal of floats, leaving an open beach for  this season, but Comm. MacKay recommended anchoring of logs around tiie swim  airland fo  at low tide.  It was agreed to go ahead and clean  up as best poMble for this year.

Successful test  InigiiieCTS geport arrives  recommends water proiecl  .- > j  ENGINEER'S report on the test well recently sunk as a means of supplementing Village of Gibsons water supply was  received last week and indications are  that sufficient water is available to warrant a substantial new development.  Estimated cost of completing the test  hole as a final well totals $7,800 and includes contingencies and engineering It  was recommended that the same driller,  Rural Well Drillers Ltd. complete the project in order to preserve continuity on the  work.  On top of this, a reservoir will be needed., together with pumping equipment in  order to supply the main reservoir.

Proposed gift . . .  Council rejects offer  not in sewer business  GENEROUS offer by the school board to  turn over the school sewer line to the  village,  free of charge, was declined at  last meeting of Gibsons Village coimciL  This offer is the latest move to get out  from under what could prove,an expensive  responsibility, .resulting from notification  by the Pollution Board that illicit connections should be removed' or the village  take over the utility. Alternative, would be  to extend the "sewer line further out in'  order to eliminate pollution in the bay  area. Although, not' official, it has been  suggested that this would cost in the region of $60,000.  Village administrator, Charles Gooding,  told council he bad checked back oyer the  correspondence relating to the sewer and  it was obvious the connections referred  to as illicit, had been approved -at the  time of installation. "The school board,  council and department of health had in  fact approved, this at the time", he said.  "It ts dovidus' froni ^1fie "engiiifeerS-^F^ft-  they knew the connections- were to go on,"  he added. *  Commissioner Jim Drummond moved;  the school board be notified, council is not  considering going into the sewage business  at this time but when they, do, consideration will be given to.taking over the system.       ���; ,   ' ;���,,;, /y  J .'���.'./'  WATER RATES  Request that old age pensioners be put  911. 'a meter rate or some alternative means .  fty, which elderly residents who use much  .less water than younger families, pay accordingly, was also rejected by council.  ''Apart from difficulty in adminstering  /vairying price structures, it was agreed  that Gibsons water rates, as pointed out  by the PUC, are still quite reasonable.  Further, charges were for a service, not  necessarily water usage. Comm. Drummond drew -attention to the fact that West  Sechelt residents were paying more than  |6 monthly for water. "'"  "Apart from the fact that the engineer  had advised against meters, both Comms'  Fladager and Feeney agreed there would  still be a minimum $30 charge on a meter.  Jt was moved the applicant be notified of the situation as with other requests  in the past.    - -     -  Rock bluff smacks car  tow truck does better  ROBERT Henry Cunningham of Halfmoon  Bay appeared before Magistrate Charles Mittlesteadt last week to answer a  charge of impaired driving following an  incident in which he lost control of a tow  truck which was towing a private car.  The car, the property of John Dunlop,  Egmont, had suffered front end damage  when, driven by Mrs. Dunlop, it fishtailed  on a gravel road and hit a rock bluff.  Cunningham was called to tow the vehicle  away, and while travelling along the highway, both tow truck and car went out of  control, causing extensive damage to the  Dunlop auto.  Guilty as charged, Cunningham was  fined $200 and $3 costs.  Also appearing on a charge of impaired  driving following a routine check by police, Earl Roy Whyte of West Sechelt was  fined $250 and $4 costs.  Consuming in a public place, namely  his automobile, Clifford Johnson of Sechelt  was fined $50 and costs. He too was apprehended during a routine check.  For growing intormation  attend Garden Club meet  PREPARATION and growing of vegetables  and flowers for competition is a fascinating hobby. With the Sunshine Coast  Fall Fair in the offing it is hoped that  many growers will take time to enjoy this  experience. , ."  Results obtained by thinning out Vegetables and disbudding flower stems are  very worthwhile and the admiration which  extra fine specimens evoke from, visitors  is always very satisfying.  Anyone wishing information regarding  growing for exhibition should attend the  Sechelt Garden Club meeting in St Hilda's  Hall on the first Wednesday in each month  at 8:00 p.m.  Qoesmto aciion  Course, include this system,  Council is' presently preparing a  proposal be placed with the department of  municipal affairs, seeking approval of a  borrowing bylaw in order to raise a $100,-  000 debenture loan,  in order to proceed  with the project  Although water has never actually posed  too great a  problem  within the, village,  the situation has been such in the past two  years, that sprinkling was restricted and  the possibility extended whereby consideration was given to disallowing completely.  The necessity was fortunately avoided but  the danger of such action increase each  year,  ,  Clerk, Charles Gooding points out that  findings  of  the Public  Utilities Commission, following the recent public hearing  involving Sunnycrest  Motel, has  not yet  been announced,  ishould they uphold re-  = questsfdr *a- connection* to ithe. motdi*=?counr-  cil will be forced to comply-, the result being that resultant shortage  during summer months could prove both a fire hazard  and a serious problem.  Should council's stand be upheld, the  problem will still exist in that it will be  '���'''c'om'itefl^'"to^^  in the shortest time possible. ���  Mr. Gooding also makes clear the fact  that the loan will not exactly come from  the taypayers' pocket The utility will be  self-liquidating, in other- words, revenue  will be sufficient to pay its way.

We buy and  sell everything  9991-tfn  should be living on easy street. The fact  is/ that although we have reached a new  level of living, the basic impulses of human nature haven't.  For the evarage person, no matter what  they earned in the past, what they're earning today isn't sufficient. Indeed the great  complaint is, "We're barely breaking  even."  Desires for luxuries and extravagances  seem to increase more rapidly than bur  earnings. Our wants grow into needs. We  are in danger of bedomhig so carried  away by material prosperity that .what  we call our "needs"��� will always grow to  match our income unless we! take care. To  indulge in a desire, even a petty one, we  have to take the' price out of need and  that is whete the hurt occurs.  What we need is to take a balanced attitude toward our needs, desires and income and to so plan that we get the trt-  most ih "real satisfaction. This isv'iio�� penny-pinching. It does not demand austere  living. It does not involve; losing face socially. All its means is getting'Value'for  every earned dollar. It is a rather exciting  venture, much more exciting than spending money at will.  The obvious device to ensure getting  what you want is a budget.-It helps you  to be master of your.spending destipy"by  enabling- you 'to* make yoiu money gd  where it will do the most' good. A good  budget will not only make ends .meet, biit  will even add some calke to the plain fare  it provides.  The purpose of your budget is not to  save lor the sake of saving. A budget will,  indeed, help you cope with the'cost-of your  raised standard of living without dangerous guessing. But on the positive sijde it  will conserve your buying power for the  satisfaction of your important desires.  The best budget is a simple one. No  double-entry   bookkeeping   cr   anything   of  _SL_necessary. One word of cau-^  tion, howeverT^hich n.ay save you from  disappointment; you can't cheat a budget.  You need to face facts and reco'gnize the  demands that will "be made upon yourin--  come. You don't get toward a solution  by ignoring awkward evidence.  A family  budget is   a  family   affair.  ELECTRA-CLEAN  Upholstery Cleaning - Carpets  Furniture^ - Rugs  For appointment Phone 886-9890  When the Whole family participates in  reaching the necessary decisions, intense  unhappiness may be avoided, because"  there will be neither selfish extravagant  spending nor miserly control. When everyone in the family knows the limiting factors there will be less likelihood of tiie development of financial crises due to unwise spending. The children will learn not  to aim at too much too soon, and their  elders will learn not to plan too little, too  late.  A budget could well be the answer to  bringing back to people that, sense of the  realities our pioneer great-grandfathers'  knew so well and which many people nowadays brush off with���"What does Grandpa  know about hardships?

Speaking to the Toronto Association of  Administrative Assistants or Private Secretaries, Commissioner Fisher said "no  country in the world spends so much time  in self examination and worry about its  future. Maybe a good enthusiastic centennial will instill pride and enthusiasm in  us."  Recalling that many Canadians think  they will only be spectators of the Centennial events in 1967, because "the government is doing it all," Mr. Fisher said that  the government can only promote interest  in the 1967 festivities by organizing some  of them.

Boisterous, often devoid of  Scruples and lacking allegiance to any  flag, they had to be kept in check. The  man who tamed them was Matthew Baillie  Begbie, first judge in this wilderness and  later first chief justice of tho prbvirice of  British  Columbia.  A struggling, young London Barrister  with a trim Van Dyke and luminous eyes,  he had been a top student al Cambridge,  an all-round athlete, and a singer of repute. But he was firm in the law and fierce  in his application of it.  His life, holding circuit court,, became  colored with legends of the bully he flattened with one blow, of the plotters he  quelled with a bucket of dirty water, of  the floggings and hanging", he ordered.  In truth, he had a horror o' taking a human life, contemporaries wrote. But he  kept the peace by his very presence on his  horse-back; circuit.  He was less respected in calmer days  for his handling of mining disputes and  600 miners once sought his removal. In1870  hdwev'or. He was made chief justice of the  united colonies, first man ��o hold that office. Given a knighthood he died in office  in 1894 at age 75.

I HAVE been "ticked off-by some friends
'for "allowing the subject of crass commercialism" to creep into a few of my pub-, | »

more money as a result of-the expected
boost in tourism aiid. commerce in general.

goes to the few responsible for the recent charitable projects, much of it to help
successful May Day" celebrations in pay off a committment of eighteen him-
Sechelt. , dred dollars for the physio theraphy room
at the hospital.
Other organization^ also were active
participants in the May Day celebrations
and  all working for meritous causes.
While lack of organization might
have been responsible for a few slip-ups,
here and there, it is to be bourne in mind
that, as with most community events, it
is always the enthusiastic few who do all   Without these volunteer workers, May
the work and with few exceptions, year
after year, those same faces are very
conspicuous. On the other hand, most
adverse comments come from people
equally conspicuous, but because of their
absence from community wtfrjj: or projects. '
It is because we have pyblic spirited
citizens that so much is done to create
interest and supply entertainment. The
work involved is tremendous and when
people give so much of their time and
effort for no personal gain, they deserve
the greatest of praise. >
This year, without the Lions Club
Day and many other such events would
have dropped by the wayside long ago,
which would have been a shame for too
many age old institutions have already
been dropped from community life and
certainly to no particular benefit. Smaller
districts lose a great deal this way for it
is seldom anything worthwhile replaces
them.
Plans are already afoot to produce
a May Day next year far superior to anything yet. However, it is to be remembered, an event of this sort brings business to the area in various ways and considerably more support is therefore re-
and its musical rides, the May Day pro-   quired, for while some of our merchants
ceedings would have terminated early in    have already been heard to condemn,
the afternoon. As it was, the rides proved     " .■-......
a tremendous attraction to the youngsters
while game? of chance, also operated by
the Lions, held the interest of the adults.
The club members worked long
hour into the night setting up the amuse-
absence of floats from the larger stores
was very rioticable.
Let us not lose track of the fact we
owe a great deal to a few and for their
efforts they deserve the highest commendation.
Lull Before The Storm
CLOSE proximity to Vancouver marks
the Peninsula as a happy hunting
ground for fast talking disreputable salesmen representing even less reputable
companies, and although little has been
heard recently of these dubious characters, little doubt exists but that they will
return.
Powell River is fortunate in that it
has an extremely efficient licensing inspector who pounces like a hawk the
moment such peddlers set foot in the district. We are not so lucky and consequentlyhave to be constantly on the
alert.
Each week, representatives of highly
ethical companies traverse the area, conducting honest business, in most cases
providing a needed service. Generally,
these men quickly become known as well
as the company they represent, with the
result there is no problem.
Unfortunately, too many sharpies
move in fronr-'time to'time, taking advantage of the ethics established by thc
reputable salesmen, conning unsuspecting housewives into signing contracts
both binding and costly.
Many book salesmen fit into this
category, offering a number of well
known magazines for a mere 25c weekly,
which to all appearances sounds an attractive offer. Having signed the dotted
line, closer investigation reveals, $2 has
to be paid in advance before the first
periodical is delivered. A further payment of $2 monthly is then expected for
so many months which adds up to usually
more than the magazines would cost if
purchased from the book stand.
__ JThis is but one example,ir^
numerous others, particularly involving
appliances, vacuum cleaners etc. Powdered milk with an appliance thrown in,
deep freezers with a regular supply of
food, arev others. Close investigation of
the small print ^
mical figure as the end result.
Considerable heartache has resulted
from foolishly signed contracts which
Could have been avoided with a little
forethought and careful scrutiny.
There has been little activity of this
nature of late, this however, should not
be allowed to create a sense of security,
in fact all the more reason to be on guard.
These people are not easily disposed of
and as long asm quick buck is to be made,
they will return. There is every reason
to assume, this is the lull before the
storm.
Thc simple solution is "No thanks"
and close the door. Wc get only what
wc pay for and when a- plausible door
knocker tells you your name has been
recommended by a friend, beware; he
has arrived and is after your mohey.
What Happened T© Antomatticm
A TORONTO newspaper reports that
because of the present labor shortage 44 trained and untrained girls arc
being brought to the city from England
to work on switchboards in the local Bell
Telephone Company office. There seems
to be quite an expense involved—advertisements in British newspapers, interviews in London, and the refund of trans-,
portsition cost if a girl stays on the job
for u year, But the company sees no hope
of obtaining the needed employees from
the Canadian labor supply. In Toronto
crease of 273,000 over one yfcar before.
In the five-year 1960-65 .period employment increased by more than 900,000,
For all practical purposes the country
has now reached a, condition of full employment.
However, despite the evidence that
jobs have multiplied even as automation
has accelerated, there will still be plenty
of alarmists left to tell us that the machine
is soon going to put us all on the shelf.
newspaper, "'there will  be 47,(KH. job    WMlMltC     UleSSIIkeS
It is, of course, quite right that the
spirit of our birthday celebrations should
maintain a tone in keeping with Canada's
national and historical significance as our
Parliament expressed it in an Act. Nevertheless I continue to declare, in spite of
the concern of a few of my friends, that it
is no sin for the keepers of hotels, motels,
restaurants, roadside lunch stands; shops
and the hundreds of thousands of other
Canadian businessmen, large and small,
who will be selling increased amounts of
paint, flags, musical instruments, gasoline and transportation, to look forward to
an increase in revenues in the year 1967.
It is to be hoped, of course, that all
will realize the importance of fair business
conduct. Let it not be said by any tourist
in our country that he was unfairly exploited during his visit. '
Just to show that there need be no fear
of character damage to a Canadian who
tries to do better, financially, during the
Centennial I point to no less a dignified
body than the Canadian Travel Bureau.
The Government Travel Bureau hopes
to attract a gross income from .--tounsts
from other countries of one billion, dollars
in 1967. The Bureau also has greatly increased its budget for advertising outside
Canada to help produce that hoped-for income.
Knowing that there is a solid national
effort to produce greater tourism many
will be encouraged to accelerate their business activity in the community, particularly with respect to promotion, in a way that
produces local business revenue, and at
the same time boosts the Centennial, as a
national celebration, along with the national economy.
Local merchants can do things with
their shop windows, counters and advertising which will increase sales and at the
same time add to the festive atmosphere
for"the Centennials Local-industries«can
build their corporate prestige by going
along with pur national ■ beautification program: making their properties more attractive, landscaping, cleaning up and
painting up and perhaps putting up a new
flag pole for the celebrations.
Local printers and H. ublishers can get ■
on the bandwagpn too. Mr. Bill Forbes,
editor and manager of Canadian Printer
and Publisher magazine, brimful of ideas
for small town newspapers and printers,
told us recently he is running Centennial
promotion issues of newspapers and commercial printing project plans. (One novel
idea of his for community printers and
publishers is to produce wrapping paper
covered with montages of old front page
news stories published in 19th century issues.) ^ "
Style magazine, newspaper for the retail garment trade, is running a column
every issue to pass along "how-to" information on Centennial sales promotion. Other business editors are publishing similar
material. \
Man can be the most constructive or
destructive of all animals when he is motivated by thc IW9 of profits. Let's take
the view that we can increase revenue in
1967 in a constructive way that will benefit the Centennial and all of us.
Pop. estimates too high?
speculates health officer
SPEAKING    for    Coast-Garib. l<Ji    Health
Unit,  Dr.   A.  J.  Cunningham  recently
listed some vital statistics.
"There were 614 births in the area,"
he said, "and 172 deaths, giving a natural
increase of 442, Birth rate 19.8 percent and
death rate 5.6 percent are both below the
provincial average and make mo think tho
population estimates are too high."
Of iho births for the area, 305 were

Mainlanders generally opposed union
with Vancouver Island. When it came
about in 1866 Governor Seymour elected
to remain in New Westminster. When the
legislature moved the capital to Victoria
in 1868 he finally moved There was a
great row in Victoria because he diverted
the chain gang from street repairs to work
on Government House.
In 1869 he travelled north in HMS Spar-
rowhawk to negotiate a peaceful settlement of a vendetta between the Nass and
Tsirrushean Indians. Drained by the experience, he died at Bella Coola on the
tetum voyage, June 10, 1869 and was
.buried at Esquimalt Naval Cemetery,

Those of us who  live on the Peninsula may obtain this licence by writing tq 'the customs office,  either in Vancouver or Powell River. Include the dimensions and the horsepower  of your craft and your registration will be  mailed directly to you.  Even if your boat is not of' 10 horsepower or; more it is a good idea to register it as it is an invaluable aid in the recovery of stolen or lost craft and also  helps in cases of accident.  The licence number issued must be  marked in block characters ih a color  contrasting to their background and not  less than three inches in height, on each  bow or on a board or boards permanently  attached to the boat so that the number is  clearly visible from each side.  Safety equipment that is required by  law for your protection on boats not over 18  feet in length is as follows: One bailer or  one manual pump;, two pars and rowlocks  or two paddles; if equipped with an inboard motor, permanently fixed or built-  in fuel tanks or a cooking or heating appliance that burns liquid or gaseous fuel, one  class BI fire extinguisher must be carried;  one approved lifejacket for every occupant.  I would, like to say just a little more  about lifejackets. I have read far too many  news reports of drownings as a result of  boats overturning. More often than not,  lifejackets are found in the overtuned craft  wedged under the seats or still in the  plastic containers they were purchased  in.  They will not do you much good if you  don't wear them. Remember a'life jacket  is just like a parachute���if it is not there  when you need it you will never need it  again.  There are' several other common sense  -.:���safety_ru.esi!,.<toatirf:shQi4<i,,_.be,> practised^to  ensure an accident-free, enjoyable boating season. Don't overload or overpower  your boat. When. approaching another  power craft alter your,course to starboard.  Above all don't attempt to be a "show-off".  If you have  a  fun-filled boating  season   and - keep -it safe you .will- be around - next  year to do it all over again.

Th.s  magnificent new addition to the British  Columbia Ferry Authority Fleet, largest  of its kind in the world, travels a waterway of wonder along the majestic "inside  passage" from Kelsey Bay on Vancouver  Island to Prince Rupert on British Columbia's mainland  Anyone taking this 20-hour "drive" will  see islands and inlets held in silence for  centuries, mountains and waterfalls passing in endless procession to make the  traveller wish that time would stand still.  But the scenery doesn't start suddenly at  Kelsey Bay and end abruptly at Prince  Rupert.  The  drive  to  the  ferry  terminal  just  north of fabled Campbell River,  over  a  new   "modern   highway,    passes    through  some of the most beautiful country in the  world. Vancouver Island is known everywhere   for   its   amazing   outdoor   beauty,  from the peaceful, lush valleys ringed by  mountains to the rugged sea coast and its  miles of golden sands. Prince Rupert, the  centre of British Columbia's fishing industry, is itself the start point in a journey  to totems, timber, and tackle-bustin' trout.  From here, the traveller can head north  to Alaska by one of the modern, comfortable Alaska State Ferries . . . or east to  Prince  George  via Highway  16.  By  car,  and "Queen of Prince Rupert" has space  for over 80 of them, the 450 miles of Highway 16 to Prince George is an easy drive,  with plenty of wide open camping spaces  and   excellent    motels    and   restaurants  along the way. Unless you're in a hurry,  there  are  at least 50  spots  to stop and  stare  at  on  this   route. . Rivers   like   the  Skeena, Bulkley, Lakelse, Morice and Kis-  piox  will  make  steelhead  fishermen  forget everything. Lakes and streams, forests,  rolling hills, mountain peaks capped with  summer snow, boom towns,  ghost towns,  Indian   villages   and   mining   camps���and  wonderful    people���oldtimers    with    their  memories  of the  rip-roaring past���young,  eager people with their visions of the future���all .anxious   to..share   this   outdoor  paradise with those who'll take the time  to stop.  Prince George, British Columbia's  boom town, not only offers excellent tourist accommodation of every kind, but is  like the centre of a tourist's compass.  From here, right in the middle of British  Columbia, modern highways strike north  to the vast Peace River country and  Alaska, via the Alaska Highway, or south  to the rolling Cariboo country and its world  famous cattle ranches. First stop on this  route is Williams Lake, scene of the annual  rodeo which now ranks with the biggest  in North America, and gateway to the wild  and wonderful Chilcotin country.  South again is Cache Creek, where the  traveller can turn east to the hunting and  fishing paradise of the Kamloops area, or  continue on through the fantastic Fraser  Canyon to the dairylands of the lush Fraser Valley and the metropolis of Vancouver, busiest port of the West Coast of  North  America.  At Kamloops itself, the traveller can  choose to drive east over the magnificent  Rogers Pass highway to Revelstoke, the  Rockies, and the twin niountain resorts of  Banff and Jasper . . . or south to the  picturesque lakes and orchards of the  sunny Okanagan, centre of a thriving new  wine industry and one of the world's  great fruit growing areas.  The new "Queen of Prince Rupert"  service does more than link Vancouver Island to the mainland north. It opens up  a new world of travel adventure.

John remembers how he was often  punished by being banished to his room on  a diet of bread and water, but this was  no hardship for his mother's home-baked  bread was always delicious and his father  always relented by supper time.  : Eventually. John's father depided ,that  he could never disuade his son from travelling and In 1906 allowed him to emigrate  to Canada where he settled in Winnipeg  for a brief spell but the climate sent him  further west to Vancouver. It was while  crossing the Rockies that John decided  that this vast country was to be his permanent, ho'mle.'

Disruptive efforts  Editor,,The Times:'  Sir���I take exception to the use-of the  NDP club by Orvrlle Braaten for the purpose of promoting a breakaway frqm our  union.  ThegB-Bffsrts started as early as pcto-  bar, 1965, perhaps earlier. Orville is an  organizer in this area for the NDP and  he used his position in the party to promote his union. He is also a business agent  for this breakaway union in Vancouver.  Even though an election is coming, there  is no evidence that there has been any  organizational work done in this area for  the party. It is obvious that he has no time  for that work.  Our local and International Vice-  President Stan Green, together with the  B.C. Federation of Labor, has complained  to Robert Strachan about these activities  both here and in Nanaimo and in other  areas near our local unions. In Nanaimo  the local NDP club has been used by this  breakaway union for a much longer time  and it seems, more successfully than here.  The problem for Mr. Strachan is that  NDP clubs have a large measure of autonomy so that Mr. Strachan cannot "order"  them to quit these activities.  Let me state here that I am a supporter  of the NDP party and my objection is tc  the misuse of some NDP-clubs to promote  the break-up of local unions that have supported the NDP in the past.  If these local clubs had put just a small  part of their efforts into trying to do a  good job of organizing in these areas for  their political party they could have done  something that would have really helped  unions and the people of B.C.  Instead, this and other NDP clubs, have  been used as a centre for their disruptive  efforts. I do not see how anyone who  knows anything about the past history and  problems of unionism in North America  could tolerate the breakup of legitimate  unions.  I would not claim that our international  union is anywhere near perfect. I have  never tried to "whitewash" them, but 1 do  object to indiscriminate charges made  against' people thousands of miles - avvay. *���  This is too easy.  It should be noted that there have been  no serious charges made against International Vice-President Stan Green or the  other international representatives in B.C.  These men are all Canadians and their  activities Ha vie been closely watched^ Stan  Green is one of the most capable union  leaders in Canada.  I would not claim that our local union  executive is anywhere near perfect. A  union executive is usually as strong as  the support that it receives from the  membership and this condition applies  here.  CHRIS  D.   JOHNSON,  Vice-President, Local 297,  Fine achievement  Editor, The Times.  Sir���It was my pleasure to participate  in a small way in the Spring Festival held  last Saturday.

Expostulations from the  owner brought an indulgent smile from the  mother and" a comment to the effect that  "Jimmy doesn't like dogs." It apparently  never occurred to this parent that a good  spanking might teach Jimmy that dogs,  like people, have rights, and that her uncurbed little monster, unless checked, will  in all probability grow up to release his  sadistic tendencies on any human being  whom he happened not to like, even to  the point of murder. The newspapers are  full of such acts of violence by our "liberated" youth.  It would be well if some of these foolish -and ^gullible people who -advocate the ^  pernicious theory of absolute freedom of  thought and action for children, would  realize that a strong; well-adjusted character is one that is built up on a foundation of well-disciplined childhood.  ������   .

THE COST OF THE  MERRY-GO-ROUND RIDE ON MAY DAY  WAS TOO MUCH .  The   Lions   should   be   ashamed   for  charging so much for rides for children.  .At  25c   for  a   ride   approximately   three  minutes "long, they were making ��60 per  hour,'"  Is it necessary to make money on children, on rides the Lions own and dorii't even  need to pay rent on?

When  would the plane* come, for we had been  waiting oyer half-an-hour.  However, finally our flight number was  called; I was excited for it was the very  first time in my life to go up in the Air  Canada jet. As I went up the stairs, I  watched   everything   around   me.  The stewardess showed us to our seats  and 1 was fortunate to get the left side of  the plane, right by the window. We went  over Simon Fraser University, Stanley  Park and other places in Vancouver_,, then  over Gibsons and Sechelt and after half  an hour in the air, returned to the airport.  1 felt a bit dizzy when we got off the  plane and still felt sick after an interesting  tour of the hangars. However I felt better  after having a free colce and doughnut in  the coffee shop.  After that we went to the weather station. We saw the men that report on the  radio what the weather will be like, ,itheh  went right to the top and saw a weather  balloon. It was all very interesting.  The last place we went, but it wasn't  the least, was the police station, We saw  a lot of things there. We had a peek in  the courtroom, looked in a room simply  overflowing,with, either lost ox stolen bi-,  cycles. Also we saw handcuffs and walkie  talkies, but of course there were places  where we couldn't go in, such as the  finger printing room and the jail. But altogether had a wonderful time and I'm sure  everyone will agree. ���Phyllis Crowstoo.  ���    ���' p'V' .''���''  It was a long tedious trip oh the biis;  we sighted the airport and the excitement  rose.

Modern youngsters are real sharp .and-they think fast.  It is a good thing that John Bosch is  a pretty husky specimen of manhood in  order to carry the outsize cast that adorns  his left arm. The doctors know you John,  and your inability to stay still for any  length of time. It appears that Johnny,  after dousing a small roof-Jare on one of  their cottages, took the short way off the  roof. A 15 foot drop; straight down. He  finished the quick descent with a fractured forearm. Fortunately for the Boschs,  the fire was noticed by tbe small daughter  of one of their, weekend guests. It was  quickly brought" under control with little  damage���except to John.  And speaking of guests, there were almost 300 fish, predominantly bluebacks,  checked in through Bosch's Marina over  the holiday weekend. Other accommodation at West's Eesort and Bathgates' was  also filled to capacity with almost all getting fish.  To close this week's column (and possibly finish it for all time.after my wife  sees it in print)  another item about an  Kleindale who tpok us to the hospital without deiay. Our grateful thanks to all of  them, particularly to Harold and Alma for  their kindness and help.  Under the capable hands of Dr. Paet-  kau, Lily was soon treated and put to bed,  fortunately without serious injury but with  a face that looked as ii she had just gone  15 rounds with Cassius Clay. When I was  admitted to her room I thought that Eric  had made a drastic error in his diagnosis  ���she was in the maternity ward. But  .'any old port in a stdrm' as the saying  goes, ahd after the nurse calmed me down  the shock (of the maternity bit, that is) I  realized that crowded 'bed space was the  cause of her being there. For the next  two days Lily received the best of care  from the doctors and staff of St. Mary's  and she and her next-bed neighbor, Mrs.  Don MacLean of Gibsons, became good  friends and talked the hours away, as only women can.  At this writing lily still bears a slight  resemblance to a racoon, as Dr. Burtnick  so aptly described her appearance on the  day following the accident. Dr. Swan agreed; but then doctors, particularly old  friends like Walter and Alan, can get away  with things that a mere husband would  never think of saying. She insists on getting behind the wheel again as soon as  possible. (I should put her back behind  the lawnmower instead.) To close this little episode, WE NEEDED A NEW CAR  anyway.'  so small it was like a big toy. We flew  Over Howe ^Spoind^ and sfollowed the shore  near Gibsons but we could see where Trail  Bay was. We flew over near Bellingham  and saw Simon Fraser University. While  all this was going on we were going up  to the cockpit. There were dials and levers  on the roof and on the dashboard, altimeters, fuel gages,- barometers, speedometers and many other gages and dials  Which I didn't understand.  When I came back to my seat we  fastened our seatbelts and made a three-  point landing.  We were told not to go into the buildings but wait outside our plane for a picture the pilot wanted of us. From there we  v?ent to a large huilding where 'they  showed us how they repaired the planes.  We saw wheels and wings to be fixed  phis engines attd "propellers." They described how  everything  worked.  After that we saw a plane being taken  apart in a huge building big enough for at  least three large planes.  We went after to a cafeteria where we  \were served lunch; we had pop and buns.  From there we rode over to the police  headquarters where we toured the corridors, we were not allowed in the rooms because men .were working.  We left there and got home after a  very exciting trip, at about seven o'clock  -^Greg Hayes.  An inquisitive cowboy ambled into a  blacksmith shop and picked up a horseshoe without realizing it had recently  come out of the forge. Dropping it he  shoved his burned band into his pocket  and tried to appear nonchalant.  "Kinda hot, isn't it?" inquired the  blacksmith.  "Nope," replied the cowboy, "it just  don't take me long to look at a horseshoe."  NEED A  NEW or USED  TRY  Peninsula Motor Prod.  SECHELT. B.C.

The man who held the bomb died when  it  went  off.   Its   lethal   power   may   have  been intended instead for the prime mim-  ster, or for other ministers, or for a score  of members of parliament sitting in the  chamber.  It was an event unprecedented in  Canadian parliamentary history- The shock  of it has not yet worn off. Canadians generally and''members of parliament particularly find it incredible that a man would,  or could, walk freely into parliament with  an explosive device aimed at killing.  It was of course the act of a madman.  But its implications were no less terrifying.  Even before his body was removed  from the Parliament Buildings, however,  the demands were going up for tightened  parliamentary security to prevent such incidents. .  The security shield on Prime Minister  Pearson was. in fact, immediately tightened on his visits, to Toronto and Montreal, and in the area of his parliamentary  office.  Quite apart from these understandable  precautions however, there were suggestions that the security system in general  must be tightened around parliament.  Worried members gave the opinion that  security was inadequate, that steps must  be taken to prevent recurrances, and the  public moved for too freely in and around  the Parliament Buildings.  There was talk of denying access to  the public galleries to all except those  who obtained special passes from tiie  authorities. There were suggestions that  the Commons' protective stall should be  increased, that policing on the Hill should  be more stringent and restrictive.  This current Parliament has many reasons to be grateful to Commons Speaker  Lucien Lamoreaux. And now it has one  more.  This remarkable man kept his head  on .that, .terrible ,day_. when,many, others,,  seemed to be losing theirs. He refused to  blame the protective staff for the incident.  He refused to commit himself to any increased restrictions on public access to  Parliament Hill.  This position is simple and logical. Its  great virtue is that -��� he was able to take  it at a time of real crisis when practically  everyone else was submitting to emotional   stress  "Any place open to the public can  never be entirely safe," said Mr. Pearson He didn't think the point had been  reached in Canadian democracy where  every person visiting the House of Commons would have to be searched.  That course, he said firmly, would  meet with strong objections from the public, and he did not' propose to adopt it.  ^e Commons protective staff is an  excellent one. It could be improved,  of course, as any security system could be  improved.       -'-'-  But this had to be done through careful consideration anil review.  The speaker did not take the position  that all was necessarily well.  In the light of ah incident such as the  explosion, he said, "it would be normal  to review security arrangements. ���'.  But he stubbornly fought off suggestions that any drastic steps should be  taken to restrict the public's free and  easy access to Parliament,,,,'.' ���     :,,  For this, Canadians owe him much  thanks.  Canadians are coming to Parliament  Hill in ever-increasing numbers. Admittedly some come to scoff, some to laugh,  and perhaps a few to applaud. i  But they're coming and they're getting  to know their Parliament. Tourists from  other countries also come in the thousands.' '..;'.  '        '.'��� ":" .'.',',:.'

They can't all be searched, even if any  one wanted to, And anyone determined to  bring in a bomb or a weapon could do so  easily enough. It could be concealed in a  coat, or a package, or a woman's hand-  bag. ,.,���. ,  There have been suggestions Uiat better control could be obtained by adoption  of the British system, where no one gets  A B.C. flashback . . .  ig changes in 100 years  THE passage of 100 years meant little to  some   of   British   Columbia's   Douglas  firs���a few more rings, a broader girth,  a few more fire scars.  But what a change in the people!  Old records in the provincial archives  show that the population of the two Cr^wn  Colonies of Vancouver Island and British  Columbia in 1866 was, by the most generous estimate, well inside the 65,000 mark.  Every Can. child  to get medallion  A   FORMER   Ottawa   man,   retired   chief  engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint,  Thomas Shingles, and a Tofonto artist,  Mrs. Dora de Pedery Hunt, are the winning designers in the limited competition  for the Centennial Medallion, Canada's  Centennial Commissioner John Fisher announced today.  Mr. Shingles, who now lives in Victoria,  and Mrs. Hunt, will each receive $1,500  for their winning designs: Mr. Shingles  for the obverse side of the medallion and  Mrs. Hunt for the reverse.  The medallions, more than 5,500,000 "of  them, will be distributed to all Canadian  school-children, grades one to 13, as reminders of ithe centennial year and its  significance to Canada and to Canadians.  The medallions will be minted by the  Royal Canadian Mint and will be made of  red brass metal, an alloy of copper and  zinc. They will be one and one-quarter  inches in diameter or about the size of a  silver dollar.  Distributions of the medallions will be  done through the co-operation of provincial departments of education, and terri-  ''ton^'-goveriime]^ ..,.,,,.,...-.,...,,-  In the case of the latter, many districts  in far north eastern Canada which cannot  be reached by water within the schedule  for distribution of the medallions will receive the medallions far in advance of  ��� other^.CMa.dian.centres, with aircraft of  the RCAF making drops o? packages of  medallions in the north late next autumn.  They will be presented to the school children on June 1, 1967, in simultaneous ceremonies with those held elsewhere in Canada.  Communities such as those to the northeast of Hudson Bay and north of Fort  Churchill along the west side of the Bay,  as well as such locations as Alert Bay  and Mould Bay on the Arctic islands will  receive the medallions in this way.  into  the  galleries  without   a   pass  from  authorities.  While this seems appealing, it wouldn't  offer any real protection against the bomb  type of incident. It was only two years  ago that Ronald Cawlishaw threw a carton of beef blood onto the floor of the Commons. It could just as easily have been a  bomb.  And Mr. Cawlishaw made his pitch  from a seat in a special gallery which ho  had obtained on a pass from a member  of parliament.  There is quite a bit of support here,  for the,speaker's reluctance to impose any  kind of restrictions on public access. This  is a matter of pride too.  Any Canadian, or any visitor from another country, can drop into the House  any time it's in session and find a seat.  It's a free and easy system, and a good  one. It's akin to the pride Canadians can  feel in the fact that their prime minister,  can move freely about the country without being shadowed by hordes of protective police,  Society can't, protect Itself against Isolated cases of madness without violating  some dear and valuable rights of citizens  in general.  From time to time a mad bomber will  have his way. When he docs, It,Is up to  the rest of us to ensure tljat we don't  panic, 'that wc don't sacrifice precious ad-  vantages for i\ temporary and in tho 6nd  a spurious kind of protection.  And today we're nudging 2 million.,:  No census had been taken in 1866. But  it was thought there were at most 7.J00  whites on the island and 18,000 Indians.  On the mainland, white 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 River goldfields 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 colonies merged in 1866,  came from customs revenues. ,  There were duties to be paid on mpst  food items and many manufactured itenis  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  town and $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 6 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 the mainstay of the industrial wealth of the land. In. 1866 an est  imated $3.5 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 Es--  quimalt a Pacific base.  (The fleet under Rear Admiral Hastings on the Esquimalt station included HM  ships  Zealous,  Malacca,  Scout,  Sparrow-  ' hawk and the gunboats Forward and Grap-  pler.)  ���The- coal-miners at Nanakne-v  ning $3 a day and laborers were getting  up to $1.75 and the mines shipped 25,212  tons that year.  There were about a dozen sawmills  gnawing at the timber wealth of the hew  united colony. Lumber from Bj.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.  The monetary system was a mess. The  public accounts were kept in dollars and  cents.  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 of 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.  y<  SECHELT AGENCIES LTD.
