Poole of Grantiiams Landing,' which, has  created so much interest across Canada';   <,  Indian culture is morediffir  cult to delineate because the  Indian continental race was  made up of hundreds of isolated, societies representing many  languages and a surprising  variety of customs..In the entire tribal mosaic it is now  possible to discern some customs and beliefs which were  clearly antithetical to 'others*  There,'were,- however, many  cultural features0 common" to  nearly all, if not all Indian societies so that they may he re-  garded as representatives of  the entire race. For example,  if one looks for the central  meaning, of Indian life, one  finds that the most widespread  definition of this resided in the  vision quest and the religious  beliefs and practices surrounding it. Tbe primal purpose of  Indian life could be realized  only through the vision experience. Thus, each individual, at  the appropriate time and in the  prescribed ritualistic manner,  sought, literally, to become possessed by a spirit, greater, wiser, more powerful than the ego-  self. Success in any undertaking, achievement in all of life  depended upon this displacement and this surrender. This  was the dominant feature of  Indian culture.  It is evident that in the essential sens^ of the meaning or  purpose of life, Indian and  White cultures were not merely divergent, they were thoroughly opposed. There were,  however, not a few customs  common to both cultures and  it was along these paths of  practice that relating proceeded. Both cultures, for example,  entered easily and readily into  trade. Both were traditional  traders. Trade, indeed, continued always as the most enduring means of communication between the, two races, so  far as it went, but the Indian.,  was not a merchant. He had  no cumulative concept of  wealth, no monetary system  and thus, no real concept of  purchase. The White mind was  unable to appreciate the difference. Split on the rock of  divergent customs, trade never  did succeed in developing into  commerce.  As with trade and commerce, ���  so with work and employment.  Tho Indian was quite accustomed to work, hut for him, work  was rewarded with achievement rather than monetary re- ,  compense, His gains wcro in  personal areas of satisfaction-  physical and psychological. Except perhaps for certain tribes  of tho Pacific Coast, no Indian  could havQ undcrsto<kl incentives which could only bo satisfied by material gains valued  not in term:, of "enough," or  oven, "moro" ��� but "more  than," The Indian response to  need-filling wan a direct* application to self, to the resources  of, environment and above all,  to tho Powers of life and  growth. Ho could conceive of  making weapons, artifacts,  tools, but making money' was  beyond his ken.  But tho, greatost breakdown  In relations occurred as a ro<  suit of tho divergence of Whlto  and Indian customs with regard to tho land. To tho In-  dlun, the concept of owning tho  land was ns foreign as was  that of owning tho atmosphere,  to Whites, Hut It was moro  than this. Tho Indian hnd no ,  ��� ��� tradition'' i:f"castles,"moats and��  drawbrldgo..

Ho shared tho  land, tho water and the, atmo-  . phoro will. ,hl�� brother, and  other forms ^of rlife. The land  was neither owned nor managed by man. It was possessed  by a Great Spirit and ii  managed itself with innate wisdom,, for the earth was not a  dead thing. It" was vibrant wit.  a life peculiarly and vibrantl.  its own. It blossomed with life-  forms as the wild plum bloomed with flowers,, and - judging  from such records as exist, ii  would appear that the Indian  AVas quite happy to share tb<  land and its resources with hi.  JVhite brethren.'      " - " (   ' -  Butt to   the   European,   the  traditional relationship of man  to land resulted in alienatinf  him from a total environment  and insulating him against nature.   To  the' descendants   of  John Stuart  feudal serfs and lords, private>   faftfi *%tuart  ownership of land was the-key   #w��ii J*Wiu ��� ��� ���  Lake named after  ' -   -��    - - _  Scottish pioneer  to security, to freedom, to life-  itself. Without private land a"  man was at best, an indentured  servant, at worst, a homeless  vagrant. With it, he was a respected citizen with defined  rights. It was psychologically  impossible for tbe European  immigrant to accept the impersonal and unpossessed land  as a comfortable definition of  home. He could be comfortable  only with titled land���a specialized -fragment cut from the  corporate body of nature,.personalized by fences and possessed by the right of private  use.  Since it was impossible for  the Indians to see something  \yhich they had no conception  of owning, land was ceded to  the Whites. The basis of these  transactions was trade rather  than purchase, and they were  consummated and legalized after the European pattern of  "treaty." It is certain that the  intent of the initial treaties was  not understood by; the Indians.  It is likely that until they found  themselves forcibly ruled off  ceded lands' they had no realization of loss. Subsequently,  they obstinately resisted the  ceding of land and submitted  to treaties only under duress.  Thus, the first result of the  European's psychological need  to be' fenced in, was that the  Indian found himself fenced  - out. For a long time he was  merely bewildered by White he-  havior. For a long Un\e he did  not seem to feel the squeeze  of the fences. And even when,  finally, he was retreating with  his back to the west, he did  not seem. able to believe what  was happening. His disbelief  took tho form of stole, sometimes sullen resistance. But  when, exasperated beyond endurance, it could and did  erupt into explosive retaliation.  This brief comparison attempts no more than to suggest thoso most prominent differences in tho two cultures;  those conflicting features which  seem to have contributed most  directly to what, In White culture is now referred to as the  "Indian problem."  WHEN Simon Fraser's men  met hostile Indians at the  mouth of the great river they  had explored in 1808, it was the  last straw.  Buffetted by the rapids, worn  out by long portages, frightened,  by their remoteness, they were  ready to desert. It was Fraser's  clerk and lieutenant, John Stuart, who stood by him and  calmed the men and convinced  them that only by pulling' together could they survive.  Stuart was born in Straths-  pel, Scotland in 1779. He joined  the North West Company in"  1799 and. was sent to the Peace  River where he joined Fraser's expedition to the coast  Later he became a partner in  the firm and. in, 1821 when a  merger took place with Hudson's Bay Company, Stuart became a chief - factor. He returned to Scotland in 1839 and  died ��� there eight year later.  Fraser named Stuart Lake in  his honor. '  At one point in his career  Fraser suggested Stuart should  rewrite the, Fraser' journals  which Fraser readily admitted  were "exceedingly, ill-wrote,  worse worded and not well  spelt." But Stuart never, undertook the task.   \  The historian Bancroft explained later that Stuart's own  journals were "very badly written . .". by far the worst specimen of literary composition by  a fur,trader" that he had ever  seen, with exception of Fraser's  journals. But then, penmanship  never conquered a wilderness.  Veteran suffragist to young  woman tossed into jail for parading illegally: "Put your trust  in God, "my dear. She will protect you."

The Sechelt Fire Service has been  given the runaround despite the fact the  Minister informed them he would personally  assist the project, which was all set to go.

The  breakwater for instance, which wfe expect to  see constructed this year, took more than a  decade to bring about.  This does not in any waiy suggest we have  to fight for years in order to establish a much  needed facility. The main point is that if wc  have so many projects under consideration in  Victoria^ Jt is logical to assume the departments must be inundated with thousands of  similar requests, petitions and deputations from  communities throughout the province.  We have every right to expect full consideration of our demands but it is a two-way  street and the old adage that Rome wasn't build  in a day, is still an applicable yardstick.

Page 6     Sechelt Peninsula Times     Wed., Morch 9, 1966  Egrnont Eye  ���by John Dunlop  WINTER paradise?���This week's column is being writ-   [  ten in Nanaimo where, believe it or not, we have  had nearly a foot of snow since 11 p.m. on Monday,  Feb. 28. It is now noon, on March 2 and still snowing  with no signs of any let up in the foreseeable future.  Weather reports do not indi  cate present conditions on the  Sunshine Coast but ray guess  is that the sun will be shining  over there, with clear sky and  balmy weather. Our tourist association would never admit to  __3���hluaacd.   ���.lifh   a<;   this,   hap-  pening on the Sunshine Coast  in the month of March.  Due home today, it appea/s  that Lillian. Neil and grandson  John will have to put up with  us for another day or so, (we  couldn't be snowbound in a better place) until the weather  moderates and we can travel  without chains. Yup, par 'or  the course as far as I am concerned and I have certainly  lived up to the motto of 'be  prepared'. in this instance. My  chains are carefully oiled and  hanging up in Gene Berntzen's  service station in EGMONT.  How about that?  TIMES CHANGE  Bumped into Al Campbell,  one of Sechelt's wild-blue-yonder boysrin downtown Nanaimo  tbe other night and it reminded ine of other occasions when  we used to fly across the Gulf  under Al's skilful care. Nowadays, with a little more time  to spare, we take the more  leisurely ferry route and enjoy a good meal while crossing  to Nanaimo. Sorry Al, now tf  you only had a dining room  on your aircraft?  HOPE FOR THE AGED  Was very interested in a  news broadcast today to the  effect that Health Minister  MacEachen is favorably inclined toward the guaranteed  minimum income plan for senior citizens as is presently advocated by a ��� special senate  committee. In this column's  opinion the proposed plan  would be much better than the  Old Age Security of $75.00  monthly plus whatever increases, if any, that may be granted  in the future. At the present  time, all citizens, subject to  proof of age and length of residence in Canada, are entitled  to OAS on reaching the age ���>{  69 years, this age limit to be  progressively reduced to 65 by  .970.  Very many of our people depend on this $75.00 for their ox-  istance, to many others It is  just an additional amount to  jfritter away, they do not need  it, hut all will receive it on  ��uitabir. application. ThI.. is not  right as, under present leglsl a-  tion, Old Age Security imposes  a tremendous burden on the  taxpayer, much of which is  unnecessary. Tho senate  recommendation would set n  minimum income of $1,260.00  a year of $105.00 av month, for  single persons n��cd 05 and  over ..nd $2,220.00 a year for  couples. (President LB. Johnson has stated that an annual  Income of $3,000.00,Js tho lowest  level at which poverty cqn !>o  avoided in the 0,S.A.)  Under the senate proposals,  senior citizens with incomes below tho annual amount agreed  upon, Would bo assured of ��s��  sistance up to the limit set,,  those with incomes in excess  of such limits would not re-.  quire benefit, neither would  they receive it. This would require some kind of a means  JssLJait there is nothing wrong  with a means test that will save  unnecessary expenditure on the  part of the government and, at  tbe same time, give assurance  that only those of our senior  citizens who require assistance  to maintain an adequate standard of living will benefit.  each and every person of G5  and over, irrespective of financial worth, is poor business,  extremely wasteful, and can  certainly be improved upon.  The report of the senate special committee is one of the  first constructive steps to be  taken toward giving reasonable  assistance to, those .of our old-,,  er people who need it most.  Let us hope that the government will see fit to act upon it  without too much delay.  EGMONT   EYEDROPS  Picking up on, a two jveeks  absence.  Saturday. February 19 saw  a group of local citizens, with  shovels, hoes, mattocks and  rakes, attacking our community club grounds in an effort  to get them in shape for this  year's May Day sports. As is  usual these days, in most community affairs, the turnout  could have been larger. A few  more hands would have lightened the load and additional  work on the grounds would  have   been   accomplished.  The day's work was undertaken mainly for the benefit of  the youngsters and to give our  younger people a place in  which they can enjoy outdoor  games and recreation. The  men and the young folks who  worked on the grounds, the  women who prepared and  served a hot lunch, and others  who participated in one way or  another deserve a special vote  of thanks from the entire community, They did a good job.

RECOMMENDATIONS  Mr. Dober estimates that .it  the present rate of purchase of  2,000 books per year, the district, will still require an additional 4,000 books by the end  of 1968 to bring the number to  the approved total of 10 per pupil. He therefore recommended  that the board double the library budget for 1967 and 1968.

The great  wave of nationalism of the mid-'  twentieth cetttury has led to  a frantic demand in the emerging nations for trained and  educated personnel to put them  on an economic and social level with the better established  nations; whereas the- powerful  and the well-established nations  state in order to maintain their  relative, economic, political and  social position, they have been  frantically involved in pressing  for .more and better trained  citizens.  Our interest in Canada in  education has been strengthened by the growing need to' re-,  train personnel in those areas  where former skills and jobs  become obsolescent. This demand for more learning facilities has been strengthened by;  the pressing need for more  skilled; workers, by r the need  for many more professional  people. Furthermore, an Increased recognition and appreciation of the desirability of  providing every Canadian with  a training or education commensurate with his or her native ability In order to satisfy  both economic and social  needs, "in order to loarn how  to bo human and how' to organize and operate a human  society," in order to prepare  for the possible increased a-  mount of leisure time has sparked an increased interest lt\  education, This resurgence in  interest In education In Canada stems, too, from the real-  i/.ntion that wo aro now economically capable of affording  extensive educational offerings for all our citizens, child  and ad lilt alike.

Ferrari . .  M elementary teacher  views science program  THE PROBLEM���The present B.C. Elementary  Program is text book centered and treats  as a collection of facts to be presented in an authoritarian manner.  Pupil evaluation usually consists of objective tests designed  to test the ability of children  lo recall previously presented  "facts." No attempt ��is made  - to evaluate the pupils scientific    sense the importance of science  out  their  own   guided  gations;  (c) "To give,  a 'feel' for science . . .  municate    the. excitement    of  science  .  .  .  to help them  to  . creativity or his understanding  ��� of basic science concepts.  How can this  unsatisfactory  approach   be   changed   to   one  which  not  only   teaches   facts  - but also leads  children  to  an  understanding  of the  true  nature of science by giving them  an   opportunity   to   carry   out  their own investigations?  The present B.C. Elementary  Science Program���1. Outlines  the units to be taught at each  grade level.  2. Actual topics to be taught  vdtbin each unit are outlined.  3. A text book is prescribed  i* -.-.-         ,.---. for-= each  grade_-one ..per. pu-_  pil.  4. A spiral approach is used  in which topics are retaught in  various  grades.  5. The program in many instances is taught by a non-  specialist.  6. The teaching method commonly used: (a) reading of text  and discussions; (b) copying of  notes; (c) occasional teacher  demonstrations; (d) testing uf  fact contained in notes at the  end of each unit.  ADVANTAGES OF THE  PRESENT PROGRAM  1. Easily fits a graded school  program.  2. Easy to cover by teachers  with little science training.  3. Well-suited to the traditional elementary school classroom, which i has no facilities  for practical work, since no  practical work by pupils is required.  ;. 4.   Che^p  to   operate,   since  only a minimum of equipment  ;; is  needed for teacher  demon  strations.  , 5.   Pupil  evaluation  is  easy  ; since   aims   are   narrow   and  . '  , "fact" oriented.   ,  \      ' 6,    Teachers   feel   confident  when teaching this type of pro-  :;     , gram since the development of  each   lesson   is   pre-arranged  and the outcomes are known.

Development of new cur  ricula, methods and materials  designed to meet the new objectives���(a) Several groups  working in the U.S. have developed new methods and ma- .  terials. Some are: Elementary  Science Study, American Association for the Advancement of  Science Project, Science Curriculum Improvement Study; and  School Science Curriculum Project; Most of these groups have  developed methods which involve teacher and pupils in in- \  vestigations using specially designed equipment which is  cheap enough' to be made available on a class-set basis.  3. Problems involved in introducing the new "Pupil Discovery" approach���(a) Need to  change the attitude of teachers  orientated to the present  authoritarian approach; (b)  Need for improved design of  classrooms; (c) Slightly higher  cost of new programs; (d) Difficulty of evaluating effectiveness of new approach; (e) Difficulty of evaluating pupil progress; (f) Re-thinking of  authorities in regards to present examination system.  4. Signs of change in B.C.���  (a) B.C. Teacher's Federation  appoints a curriculuiji revision  committee;     (b)    Some    new  , schools being built with project rooms in addition to normal classrooms.  (c) Better elementary school  libraries will facilitate pupil  research; (d) A few school districts are trying out some of  the new units.  A CONCLUDING THOUGHT  "In the., final analysis, a  ��� science course is not covered-  it is uncovered,"  Whereas there is a definite  need for a complete change in  the outlook toward, science in  the elementary school, It, should  not be considered the "bandwagon" subject, A loss of perspective regarding its actual  place in the curriculum should  not be over emphasized.  Progress  CONSTRUCTION of a new service for the Davis Bay  area is well underway. This foundation is the commencement of a biulding which will house a building  ^ supply and various stores, with apartments above. Well  known pioneer of the district, Mr. R. F. Whitaker and  son Jake, are the two men behind the project which  will serve the rapidly increasing population in the area.

Funds aire  required .urgently "so as to .provide fully equipped activity  halls and other equipment, so  that the job at hand might be  done most effectively. We, as  educationalists, must also Ire-  evaluate our position in regards to our traditional approach in teaching techniques  in this area. We must also endeavor to have the child male  the most of his cwn capabilities, and to accept his own  ��� limitations. To stimulate also  his natural desire towards competition and become a self-engulfing disease. We must make  the child aware of his own individual growth so that he may  -also compete with his own limitations and accept these with  reality.  We, as administrators, must  also take a hard look at our  present use of the gym equipment and activity hall, so that  its facilities are used for the  maximum development of the  child, and that it should serve  as a social centre of the community.

"The decision was arrived at  logically, not with power-seeking ideas but by membership  demand," he said.  While attending a conference  of the international in New  York some years ago, Mr. Macphee said he realized a number  of changes were required and  although he did manage later  to bring about some changes  when attending a wage conference in Cincinnati, finally found  that Canada had UUle voice.

Vice-president of the International Brotherhood of Pulp. Sulphite and Paper Workers Stan  Green, recently elected in New  York, said he was born in Vancouver and is first and foremost a Canadian. He said his  views differed little from those  ot Macphee and agreed. that  changes were needed in the  constitution and would be  made. "We knew these changes were needed and stayed o  fight for them while others  walked out," he said.  As to the alleged corruption,  Green claimed the international was investigated in 1961 and  '62 by the FBI who found no  evidence to support the charges. A Canadian directorship  has been established and is  working very well, he stated,  and said he fell it on|y a matter of time before Canadian  autonomy is obtained.  On the question of distribution of funds; he said a fair  proportion is actually distributed in Canada." "This does not  worry the American workers  for this is unionism. Wo must  think in terms nol only of nationalism but of world national'  ism," he said.  Secretary-Treasurer of tho  B.C.

This was later  heatedly denied by Angus Macphee who argued an invitation  bad been forwarded to O'Neil.,  Touching on automation, O'  Neil said no union can solve  this problem, and the future of  many thousands will depend on  how it is faced up"to by unionists.  Commenting that he has  been a trade unionist -for 29  years, he said he does not feel  a label can be put on a union.  Whether it is a good one or a  bad one depends on the members, he added. He agreed that  changes in the international  were needed but c said: he did  not think this could be brought  about by isolation.  "I.am not going to tell you  what to do," he said. "I only  intend  men are able to walk with their  heads held high and not afraid  of the boss."  Mr _ Eric Grafe of Sechelt  started the question period by  first  stating   how   pleased   he  Wed./ March 9. 1966    Sechelt Peninsula Times    Page 11  was to see leaders of both  unions attending a meeting together, at last. He said he was  glad to hear Mr. O'Neils remarks about workers walking  with their heads held high buz  found it difficult to associate  this with his stand behind a  constitution which in some respects  is  dictatorial.  Resultant shouting between  divided parties was subdued by  Mr. Green who rose and said  he had not appeared to take  part in a shouting match. The  meeting then continued with a  maWng   sure   working    large number of questions and  answers from both sides. No  decisions were reached but  hope was expressed by the  Canadian group that further  meetings- be held at a future  date.  Plan demonstration  by music students  MUSIC   students   of   Mr.   H.

The specially invited guests on the floor^  of the house were incredulous.  RARE  SITTING  Recently ,the Premier called  the Legislature into a rare Friday night sitting. Alan Mac-  farlane (Lib.-Oak Bay) who  bad been attacking the government, tried to adjourn his  speech to- the following day.  The Premier refused this courtesy and called an unexpected  night sitting.  In the confusion the. Premier  threatened to call a snap election. . The situation was. hard to  believe.  The latest snafu was created  when the Premier called a  press conference last week.  Because most of the reporters  were late, (it was a hurriedly  called conference), the Premier locked all.of them out ex-,  cept an unfortunate radio reporter, who arrived early. He  was told to tell the rest. When  the Press Gallery complained  about their treatment tbe Premier threw their letter into the  wastepaper basket.  Edwin  Bolwcll  in the  Globe  House. He ran and lost against 0. L. Jones, MP, a New  Democrat, and returned to the  Provincial Legislature  in  1949.  A 1965 article in the Vancouver Sun, by Mac Reynolds,  said;  "Few outside his family  would call him lovable. Cece  Bennett is about as prone to  humility as Cassius Clay. It  is .inescapable that a strong  politician, .makes .enemies,; and.  Bennett makes enemies effortlessly.  "Perhaps the wittiest definition of his sense of fair play  came from a resident Toronto  correspondent, who wrote that  Bennett would win even if it  meant moving the goal post  while the game was in progress."  'GOOD LUCK'  The Premier understands  showmanship and possesses  good luck. Twice in his coalition government days, Mr. Bennett tried to win the provincial  Conservative leadership from  Herbert Anscombe. Mr. Bennett failed each time, and you  cannot get luckier than that.  You would think that with  the successes Mr. Bennett has  won to date that he would have    and Mail of June 23, 1S62, quot-  become benign and unruffled in    ed Mr. Bennett as follows:  carrying out his duties as Premier, Strangely, that has not  ^turned out to be true.  His failure to answer letters  is peculiar. Even Royal Commissioners have found that the  Premier does not like to ans-  "Von and I can both be successful hardware merchants,  my friend, You and I can be  successful lawyers!

CONTINUOUS   CARE  Conforming to the wishes v��f  ratepayers and resolutions passed at the last annual mooting, regarding a continuous  care institution, the hospital  with representation from HID  has formed a construction committee to submit a brief to pro-  yincial authoriUes >nd obtain  "approval in principle" for  such a project,  BALANCE SHEET  The district's long-term debt  was reduced by approximately  S23.000 in 1965 and now stands  at $366,600; further redemptions of S25.000 are scheduled  for the current year.  All construction bills have  been paid and BCH1S has completed the final construction  audit, which entitles the hospital society to receive the balance of the federal and provincial grants in the near future, which have in the meantime been financed by bank  borrowing.

Rcmrid about the town  -   ���  ��� ���By Ed Green  THERE seems to be, some. alarm among, the citizens  about what is going on at the village council meetings. Some of them say they are very inharmonious and  they would not be surprised if the chairman got mad  enough to commit aii axe murder. This is not. very  likely as she has only a gavel which has been hammered lop-sided trying to bring order among the-wranglers. While this might be considered an- alarming situation by some it is quite normal for all council meetings  from the United Nations down and is nothing to be even  mildly upset about.    of ammunition to kill one Viet  Cong, who -might not be a Viet  Cong at all but a visiting fireman from Cambodia.  Of course' we are still a long  way from Sechelt but Ottawa  isn't much different. Since the  House opened this session they  have used up enough hot air  to make Canada a tropical  paradise. All the. parties seem  to. be in mortal terror of agreeing on anything and Mr. Dief-  enbaker cgrtainly isn't going  to run this risk. He is the Leader of Her Majesty's loyal Opposition and he is going to be  loyal to Her Majesty even if  he isn't to Canada. He is going to oppose anything, even  good legislation and he feels  that if he does this good enough Her Majesty- might be so  grateful   for   his   loyalty   that  The U.N. is said to be an assembly comprised of 9S nations more or less bnt by  the time this is printed there,  might be more because the  minute an African who controls  ten or fifteen acres falls out .  ot a tree to greet his son who  has recently graduated from  Oxford he gets his chief medicine man or witch doctor to  make a flag and declares himself king of a newly freed nation and therefore eligible to  join the U.N.  This is soon arranged and  he then applies to the U.S. for  foreign aid and they give him  some pink Cadillacs, white uniforms and electric refrigerators. They even give him some  bricks and mortar to build a  school and hospitals even if he  has no more teachers or ~doc~  tors than he has roads or electricity but he does" have' a v  vote in the U.N. which makes  him just as important as. the  United States or Russia who  only have one vote too.  This will give you a small  idea . of why , a JJ.N, council  meeting is anything but sweetness and light. By the . time  King Zozambooloo has finished  trucking and trading his one  vote he has enough machine  guns and mortars to win some  more territory and enough  money, stored m Swiss banks  so he can get the heck out  and enjoy life when they start  firing them.  This pattern set by the peace  worshipping UN" is followed  by one and. all. Even in the  House of Lords they are calling each other cads and bounders while over in La Belle  France, Angel Sait De Gaulle  is calling the whole- world  things he is going to'be sorry  for when they get around to  talcing care of him.    .  Of course all this is very'  far away but on coining closer to home we find L. B. J.  is having fun in Washington  trying to assure his followers  that they can have guns and  butter, too and also fire thirty  thou.s. nd million dollars 'worth  qf! hardware to land a man on  the moon. These statements  generally cause, ,9 racket so  .loud'that the senators don't  know whether they aro in Washington or Viet .Narh and  there are a lot of them \vh��  would rather be 'in Saigon than  on the Potomac, This causes I,  B, ,1, to hare off .to Texas  where ho can put on a cowboy  suit nnd lido nroupdvhi.s ranch  and wish he'd never left it, A  lot of others hnvo the same  wish including those unlucky,  enough to bo In the Vict Nam  .unfiles where they use up thir-  tyi f|ve thousand dollars worth  she will find, an. unused..title  laying around, the . palace and',  he will be- able' to retire as.

Mr.  Gordon. Gibson who made several millions  of dollars, doing: the very thing  Mr.  Bennett, will not permit,  shouts so loud- and bng that  his   secretary   is- - driven^ half  nuts   finding, new names  for  him to call the government tbe  next day. Mr.. Strachan. who is  leader of the Opposition has a  lot of new names and charges  he would' like to- shout about  and will as soon as Mr. Gibson runs out of breath, which  does not seem, likely for the  moment. Mr-'-Percault who is  leader   of   an  obscure   party  once known as the Mberal wonders why he came in the first  place and is  waiting for the  first break: in Biff Wind to of-  far   Ms   objections   to   something or other. But there is no  break    because   Mr.    Bennett  says that if they don't get down  to business, which means they  must   be   ready   to   vote   for  Whatever   it  is  he   wants,   he  will call an election. This is a  terrifying threat because they  know he will charge them with  Wed., March 9,1966    Sechelt Peninsula Times - Page-IS  being- obstructionists and, -point  to the- illustrious record of the ���  Social Credit Party which has  gathered and spent more money than, was ever printed since  Confederation. Nobody is going  to vote for anybody who is a-  gainst this dazzling performance. They' grumble, but follow.  Of course the Sechelt Vilr  lage Council is, hampered by  the fact - that their Council  chamber is not as, big as the  men's room in Mayor Eathie's  private office in the Vancouver  City HalL This cramped space  doesn't lend itself to dignity  or anything else but irritation.  According to all reports,, well  displayed on television, Vancouver's Council Chamber doesn't either. All the aldermen  attend each meeting with 3.  tomahawk which they are  ready to bury in each other's  back and the only thing they  can agree on is to bury them  all in Mayor Rathie.  These are merely observations and should dispel any alarm felt about the apparent  dissension in our Council. They  are no better or no worse than  any other Council and there  will come a day, or night, when  they will all agree on something or other. When that time  comes we had better look out  because the' moment,, when; an \  entire council agrees on. some- ,  thing- without, a? ,.aatfctsfflt.,����.  some kind' is the moment, dem- '  ocracy as- we know-it, starts, to. 5  deteriorate.

As soon as the  group was established as an official organization, council  would be asked to assist financially, In order to obtain government assistance, one third  or $10,000 of the estimated to-  tal cost of $100,000 would have  to1 be raised locally,  Accepting the report, council  agreed to, give the proposal every consideration when the  time comes.  jection last December of Referendum No. 7 for the amciunt  $768,000, school trustees decided, with the approval of Victoria to raise the cost of the  proposed new school administration building by $17,000.

The department did register  disapproval of eliminating a  proposed new school in the Bargain Harbour area in favor of  a two-room extension to Madeira Park School, by refusing  to share in the transportation  costs of pupils.

ART CLASSES  Request from Mr. Arthur  Lisch for use of the Art Room  at Eiphinstone High School, one  night per week was set aside  for consideration. Mr. Lisch  explained that he had been approached by a group of teenagers who intend going to art  school next year, for creative  are lessons.  To accommodate the youngsters and further their interest  Mr. Lisch has been teaching  them in his own home. Under  existing regulations full-time  students cannot attend adult  education classes, so they can  not take advantage of 4he art  course which Mr. Lisch is conducting at Sechelt.  Fire extinguishers have now  been installed in classrooms of  purchase when the referendum    Sechelt Elementary School fol-  is approved.  SUPPORT VERNON  Changes m Secimdary School  Curriculum require additional  teaching staff resulting in such  schools having an over entitlement of teachers. Although the  changes were enforced by the  dept. of education, the proportion of students to teachers has  not been lowered accordingly,  leaving the school district to  pay the additional salaries with  no assistance from the provincial government.  This situation has prompted  Vernon School District to seek  support from other districts  in    petitioning    through    local  lowing a series of incidents  where small fires of incendiary  origin have been discovered.
