Ja'mes Fergus-  son and his vivacious wife  Jill left this community they  - said-^goodbye -to-many-friends-  old and new. This talented and  dedicated couple seldom refused  an opportunity to visit' with  young people of all denominations, lending their voices and  guitar music to many happy  gatherings.  Some of their newer friends  were the pupils of the Barker  Free School at Roberts Creek.  One of their visits which \v��ll  long be remembered was t'a  lighthearted afternoon of sing-'  ing at the school. Old songs a��4  new were sung and as Christmas was then just around the  corner, the traditional carols,  spirituals and hymns were joined in by all. The chilu'ren and  staff found the enthusiastic approach of the Fergussons very  contagious and the wallsechped  with the sounds of mullet and  laughter.  The community will find it  very difficult to fill the gap left  by the Fergussons and their  cheerful and uplifting presence  will be missed "for a long time  to- come.

Sir ^Alexander Mackenzie  Centennial feature . . ��  Sir Alexander Mackenzie  pioneered unknown west  THE FIRST man to cross continental North America  by land, Alexander Mackenzie was disappointed by  his achievement. He knew his journey was so difficult  that the route never could be used as;^an artery of the  fur trade���and that, not fame, had been his purpose.  Born in Scotland in 1764 he    ~  had come with his parents to  New York in 1774. He was  schooled in Montreal and entered the fur tra4e as a clerk  in 1779. In 4785 he travelled west  for the North West Company,  was soon made a partner and  The Times  Phone/885-9654  was placed in charge of Fort  Chipewyan on Lake Athabaska  in 1788. In 1789 he explored a  route to the Arctic along the  river that today bears his name.  Mackenzie returned to England in 1791 to study astronomy  and navigation and the following year wintered oh the Peace  in preparation for a journey  into the unknown west. May 9,  1793, with his lieutenant Alexander Mackay, six .voyageurs  and two Indians, he set out  by canoe toward the Rockies.  The explorer followed the  Peace to the Parsnip, went  south over the continental divide and began a descent of  the Prascr, contending with a  crew ready to desert, with hostile, Indians, rugged portages  and turbulent waters which  finally forced him to abandon  the river route. Below the present site of Quesnel he turned  westward, trekked 15 days  overland and came down tho  route of the Bella Coola River  to the salt water of Bentinck  Arm, Knighted in 1802 for his  achievements, he lived to gain  a sent in the Legislative  Assembly of Lower Canada; Ho  died in Scotland in 1820,  Widely   spaced;, .though   the  cuts have'.beerjr," barriers to Canada's international trade have  been coming down.

Canada's own tariffs have  also-heen~dropping7-While ~\ve~  still protect many of our sec-  ��� ondary industries our tariffs, on  . the average, are now less than  20 per cent of the selling value  of the imports we bring from  other countries.  While these barriers to trade  have been diminishing &-other  significant development has  been taking place. Various  countries overseas^ have been  banding together to form regional trading blocks. Like the  European Common Market  they have done away with all  obstacles to the free movement  of goods and services between  themselves. Freer trade is  therefore becoming the rule on  a continental scale in Europe.  And to a lesser extent in other  major areas of the world;  Canada, so far, has resisted  this, trend. It has not joined in  ���v one of these regional trading  ..,���,.. blocks,,, Jnstead of this, it has~  plumped hard for multi-lateral  trade on a non-discriminating  ��� basis.

This is in line with the  spirit of the General Agreement  on^ Tariffs and. Trade, which  most countries signed at the  end of JWerld, War IL We are,  in other, words," still- prepared  to treat all countries and all  nations- alike.  Why has' Canada continued to  do this? The answer is to survive as a nation., Thejmoskob- .  vious ^regional block which we  might join is one involving the  United States. For U.S. would  dominate. It would, in effect,  be" setting out tarriff policies  for us. Canada's trade pattern  as well as its trading policies  would be made in Washington  rather than in Ottawa.  'Viewed against this background the current confrontation between the United States  and the European Common  Market in Geneva takes on  added significance., JThe^ECM,  prompted mainly by France, is  becoming increasingly protectionist minded. It is apparently  unwilling to cut its tariffs. In  other words, it is resisting the  main purpose of President Kennedy's .Trade Expansion ��Acfc^  the steps towards freer international and inter-continental  trade which are the principal  objectives to the so-called Ken-  TSSTTTSBbuia  fiie  Johnson ~Aa%,  ministration .seriously advocate*  .the'' formation   of   a   North,  American Regional" trading'  block, we, in Canada, will bo  faced .with 'a difficult situation;  We will have to choose whether  we will go along with this con��  tinental  approach to  trade or  whether we can still, in some-  measure, .follow  an independent course.-  Personally, I think we must  continue to pursue the industry  by industry approach. Individ-  _ualjJacls,_alang_the-lines-of the~  Canada-U.S. Automotive'" Free  Trade Agreement should m be  negotiated. One dealing with,  forest products would be of particular advantage to Western  Canada. Such agreements, I believe, are essential in any case.  However, there is one over-riding consideration. As in the case  of-automobiles and -parts, we  should continue to trade on a���  non-discriminating basis. Any  tariff concession which we  make to products originating in  the U.S. should also apply to  similar products which we may  wish to -bring in from other  countries.

Before Mr. Pear-'  son's cabinet announcement,  Joe Greene was clearly  , ."preaching for a call" os ho  went around,, saying federal  form policies" had been "too  timid, too halting and too late.",  LAST CHANCE i  In one speech, he painted (his  as the eleventh hour for Canada's rural areas���the .last  chance to get legislation to meet  farm problems while the farm  voice In still strong In the Com-  jmons.     , '  : Now  with  tho   portfolio   ho  wanted, Mr, Green fnecs some  to get ready to face the House  of Commons���a house where  most of the farm voices are on  the other side, politically committed to his destruction.  Mr. Green's past activities in  the Commons won't make his  job any easier. With a cutting  -edge to his voice and a natural  talent for,needling and heckling,    was called, in question in, the  men as Maurice Lamontagne,  Guy' Fevreau and' Maurice  Sauve, who; with better luck or  better management might have  been rivals for the top jobs.  HAS HOPES  Mr, Pearson is probably hoping he has heard the last of- the  allegations against his ministers. Three ministers against  whom varying charges.bad been  made resigned from the cabinet.  Mr. Favreau,'whose-judgement  Mr." Greene/ has been one" of  the ��� most effective rough-and-  tumble infighters in the Commons.  - The result is an accumulation  ofi scores against Mr. Greene  which opposition members, may  try to.pay off now that they'  have him pinned down inagrU  culture. A minister is more vulnerable than a backbencher and  the new head of the agriculture  department will need all his de-^  bating skill to hold off the  critics,  While Mr; Greene does his  best to come to terms on behalf of his party with rural  Canada, it is evident from Mr.  Pearson's new cabinet lineup  that the scats of the mighty are  in the cities and especially in  Toronto.        '     .  ADDS PRESTIGE    '  Heading the list Is Finance,  Minister Mitchell ��harn who  adds to the prestige of the finance job the control of the  Canadian Wheat Board and any  political credit it may generate  by sales of grain abroad.  Not far behind Is Robert Winters, tho Lunenburg, Nova Scotia boy who went to Bay Street  : by way of Ottawa and became  a   giant   Among   the   tycoons,  Rivard case, stays, on but in a  more minor portfolio than Justice which he once held. And  Mr. Sauve might have, gone up  the Cabinet ladder but for the  charges of election irregularities in his Magdalen Islands  riding. t ,  ^But Mr. Sauve is one of three  Quebec ministers whose jobs  could rise in importance once  the massive government shake*  up proposed by Mr. Pearson is  carried into reality.^ ���'"���'"' ''"���"���'''������"  As minister of rural development, he, holds the rural counterpart to. the ministry of manpower held by .Jean Marchand  and the ministry of resources  and energy of Jean Luc, Pepin.

However, Mr.  Gordon knew better because you  can't have culture, Toronto  style, unless you have dollars,  any style. The smell of the last  election had hardly died away  before Mr. Gordon who knew  a lot more about dollars than  he did about politics, ran for  Toronto like he was training for  the Olympics. Why? Because  only a short time before a smiling high compression whizz  named Bennett from that foreign country beyond the Rockies had let it be known that he  wished to start a bank.  The very idea of such a thing  appalled Mr. Gordon who knew  that Mr. Bennett generally got  .t.i,what^ibei��went'-after-on0��way*or  the other sooner or later; so he  dropped Ottawa like a hot potato and hastened back to check  all the locks on the Bay Street  'Piggy banks, for. he \vells knew  that if Mr. Bennett once got his  pink digits into the banking  business there, AvouldSbe* av lotf  of morning coats . and striped  pants going cheap.

The beautiful simplicity of the Bennett Act was that  Mr. Bennett didn't have to consult anybody but Mr. Bennett,  on^ any venture whatever and;  he' never disagreed with himself,   "' " -t  A lot of suspicious people had  some scurvy thoughts about  why Mr. Bennett wished,to get  into the banking business. They  said a lot, of things, none of  them complimentary but the  fact is that Mr. Bennett had a1  Sechelt  Beauty Salon  Mr.  Omer Lepitre  Now, In The  Rlchtdr Block  Cutting and Styling  Tuctday to Saturday 9-5  Phone 885-9525  his desk. He'd proven that when  Ottawa's arch enemy, Quebec,  had ' discovered that they  couldn't finance the" province  and the politicians too. They  couldn't or didn't want to pinch  the politicians or. there wouldn't  have been anybody left to run  Quebec, so after making them  promise to be good boys, and  also because there wasn't much  left in the provincial treasury  to tempt them, the, remaining  politicians who had been proven  either honest or slow had to  come up with a few millions to  stay in business. Since even the <  most reckless investors wouldn't  risk a plugged yen since Lucien  Rivard went out to water the  skating rink they, were very  gloomy indeed. Mr. Bennett  wasn't He had a whole suitcase full of millions that had  been paid for water he hadn't  even.started to deliver so he  simply handed '"'"Over''"^/few mil-"'  lions to Quebec, made a mark  in his scribbler with one of his  ball point pens, (three for a  quarter), that indicated Quebec  owed him half a million dollars  more than he had loaned; it.  This, he reflected, was even  better than the watered whisky  business; in fact it was better  than any other kind of business  he'd ever heard of, so it is no  wonder he wanted to own a  bankt t Besides, he had a lien  note on the whole province of  Quebec for security so it; is no  wonder he didn't bother talking  the deal over with anybody but  himself.  It is now evident why a deal  like this appalled Mr. Gordon  and caused great shudders to  run, through his body, it upset  him so bad that he urged Mr.  PeaTsoni to call an; election so  that he could cancel Mr. Bennett's passport and keep him out  of Canada but this would have  made no difference to Mr. Bennett because he hadsbeen, reading up on how banking started  and it was fascinating .reading  indeed. It had; he learned,;start-  cd during the Crusades when  the rich barons and Knights took  all their loot to tho local pawnbroker who made a small ���  charge after, deducting for food; <  chastity belts and tho rental;^f  keys for them.

Commissioner Ben Lang �� . .  local voyager recounts  inaugural winter cruise  LEAVING Vancouver at 10 p.m: on Nov: 28, the^Princess Patricia commenced her inaugural shake down  to the port of Long Beach, California. I was a passenger  aboard for this most exciting and interesting cruise which  included a" day at Long Beach followed by visits to four  Mexican ports. -���  Now under charter to Princess Cruises Inc. of Seattle,  the Princess Pat is the CPR's  famous Alaska cruise ship during . the summer months. She  will make 10 round trips to  Mexican ports, returning to the .  Alaska run in April; Long  Beach will be her home port  during the Mexican cruises,  i Accommodating 347 people,  the Princess Pat is turbo-electric twin screw, capable  23 knots, 374 feet long with a  displacement of 10,000 tons. The  vessel is completely air conditioned and equipped with every  navigational aid to make cruising safe and comfortable. Officers and crew are the finest���  especially picked from CPR  members.   At 5:30 a.m. on Monday 29th,  we rounded Cape Flattery' running into some heavy weather  which built up,,to .winds' of 50  knots during'the day, quite common in the open Pacific, The  ship rides very well but there  were some unhappy ipassengers  and crew; I managed to find  my sea legs quickly and didn't  imiss a meal���nor lose one, The  dining room seats 145 nnd it was  fun trying to keep things'.on the,  tables.  Capt. Qeorge Black, the ship's  master and I had several mil-  , in.fi.1 friends in the CPR, CNR  itn^l the, old Union and became  acquainted right a way.. As a result, I spent many hours on the  bridge, in the wheelhou.se and  chartroom. . Charting and recording was interesting as "the  ship had never been in these  waters before. The chief engineer and chief officer were shipmates of old friends of mine,  adding to the interest of the  cruise.  The next day the sea was  still somewhat "lumpy" but  gradually abated and the weather grew warmer.  Our arrival at Long Beach  was right on schedule-^-8 a.m.,  Dec. 2. In beautiful weather,  we received a boisterous welcome���spouting fireboats, esr  cort launches, navy ships, TV  stars and a 42-picce band. It  was a gala "Bicnvcnidos Ami-  gos."  Waiting to come aboard were  Mr. Laura Alvarez Morphy,  Consul, of Mexico. Honorable  Edwin W. Wade, mayor of Long  Beach, J, G. Blsson, Canadian  Consul General, officials of  Princess Cruises, Actress Kasey  Rogers (Julie Anderson of TV's  Peyton Place), Barbara Parkins (Julie's daughter, Betty In  the TV series).  Wo sailed from Long Beach  at 10 p.m. pec. 3 for our first  Mexican port of call Puerto  Vallarta.       ' ,  The ship now,had a .full pas  senger list, people from all  walks of life, interesting and  stimulating. Ship board life is  the finest way to meet people,  it only takes a few hours to  feel you have known many for  a long time���after all you are  all in the same boat.  Steaming south, the temperature climbed and out came the  shorts arid loud* sMrtslr Most"  popular spot on the ship, other  than bars and dining room, was  the forward deck���right at the  sharp end. Watching flying fish  and porpoise, sometimes by  the hundreds, became a,.favorite pasttmeT',"As'lve:'"''gbt father  south, turtles paddling lazily in  the warm water were plentiful  and sea temperatures were 80  to 85 degrees.  Being an early riser, I always  made a tour of the deck a few.  times, both for exercise and  not to miss anything, (10 times  around was a mile). Coffee was  available from a'big serve yourself urn from 6 a.m. till breakfast and I'm sure some people  had a cup each turn of the  deck.  Many mornings before sunrise, the thermometer outside  the wheelhouse registered in  the 70s.  Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful, remote, semi-tropical vil-  ' lagc, with thatch roofed dwellings clinging to the long slopes  of mountains surrounding the  bay and inaccessible by road,  except in a jeep.  The arrival of our ship was  historical in that it was the  first time a passenger vessel  "'���'���had ���"entered';'the''harbor" since  1704 when the Portugese sailed  there with settlers.  An improvised small'clock"had  been built on. pilings, from  which launches took us ashore  from, our anchorage.

DECEMBER 22 brought relief  to students and teachers alike  as they wrapped up the last  school, day of 1965. During the  morning a few exams were  written but spirits rose as the  Christmas 'concert* neared.  Soloist Eloise Delong started  the afternoon entertainment, accompanied by Brian Swanson  with his accordian. Other per-.  formers during the afternoon  were the school choir, which  sang a well'arranged selection  of carols, accompanied, on the  piano iby Mr. Headley, and-soloist Mary Lamb. Everyone ,  joined   in - when  the -^'teachers  - choir' appeared on the stage to  ' lead in the singing.
