Noi as  many succeed as they would like but it  must be remembered that many students  have to study in a new environment  amongst strangers and it is tougl) on, them.  Pressures sometimes build up until the  youngsters explode in some way.  There are three types of schooling  available; residential schools for children  from isolated areas or broken homes,, orphans or children of nomadic parents.  Day schools^ oh the reservation for those  wishing to, retain their own system of education, or integration into the provincial  school system.  Indian children learn better by doing  rather than listening, said Mr. Lawrence,  while parents' are always talking, telling  their children what not to do but Indian  parents a'r'p:; more, inclined to let children  ... learn through Experimenting, The Indian  public school act, only requires children  to attend school at seven years but more  and more parents arc demanding kindergarten and oven nursery schools.  The (cdcral government has not entered  tho field of secondary , education, but provides capital for enlarging schools to  accommodate Indian children and.provides  , a per capita grant for children integrated  into the provincial system,  Residential schools could become hos-i  tela-as'"children are ���Integrated Into the  ' provincial system.

Early on the agenda was the controversial Davis Bay proposed marina project! Letter from the ministry of recreation and conservation advised that the  department had "forwarded letter of objection from the board to the minister of  lands^ arid forests,ahd water resources together "with comments by Hon. Kefipeth  Kiernan who supports the views of the*^ regional district board.  .-The letter stated that senior parks planners of the department are" "quite familiar  with the recreational qualities df tiie area  and this was indicated in-the letter to the  landsyfprests and water resources minister. - (  Chairman Norm Watson expressed the  view that he did not feel there was any  likelihood the proposed marina would be  approved. He said"te_fjdPthat wifli little  cost, the roadside Sreacould be expanded  to permit (more parking facilities during  summer months. A small triangular' area  near the sand spit extending from the road  verge has been offered for public use by  Mr. Whitaker and this could also be developed, at little cost, for possible parking  or a barbeque area.  Director Cliff Gilker pointed out that in  all fairness io Mr. Anderson, who had hoped to obtain lease rights, he did try and  in the right location his scheme had considerable-merit. He felt tiie board should  notify Anderson of the board's feelings in  this respect.  It was -greed to go along with the suggestion that; Mr. Anderson be notified that  the board jvould be pleased/.to; give consideration to his proposals if in a suitable location.' - "-"." '"'������-.'''     ���. .   1 y,.  *".  It is hoped! the board will be able to  move into its:new quarters-,at.JOavislBay  by the end of March. The chairman suggested that as the board has had use of  the' Hospital Cottage since the: idea of a  district-was horn he suggested a .donation  6f $75 ,ih "Hed of rent be made to the1 ���Hospital - Society. Also, use of eqjupnient^ materials amir labour by the Village ^council" of  Gibsons amounted to at least $500 which  shduld~he~pai6r.""/ v >^  Unatrimous approval ;was^given' ttie sug-  gestjon. and- a * motion to. that effect was  :~-ik___-_fc? -^-^y^y -?  S^*  lege which he said has been arbitrarily,  turned down by Education Minister Les  Peterson. "This does not really come under our jurisdiction but it would seeni others have been approved in areas, with a  far lesser need than ours."  Director Gilker expressed the view that  it might be a better idea to push for local  school budding expansion first. "If the  young ones are unable to get education  they are not likely to have use for a regional college," he said  "Director Frank West said he considered  that as the Secheit District-School Board  is involved with the regional college,' the  board should go the whole hog-'and?re^s-  ter protest at the minister's arbitrary decision.  Disgust was also expressed at the fact  that due to the government hold-hack on  school building programs1, portable classrooms had to be rented at a cost- of $380  each a^montb.-Any repairs are at the expense of the school board who had no option as;to where they were rented from.  Chairman Watson, somewhat amazed  at the situation asked "just what the heck  is going on'?"  v  Father-son banquet  proves popular event  SECHELT Legion Hall was filled with fathers and sons on Friday night' when 125  enjoyed a smorgasbord supper' at the annual father-son banquet  ���Grace was said by Mark Evans and  Gary Newton' introduced the' head table  guests.

The ball rang with cheers .as thanks  were expressed to the hard working .ladies  who had prepared the" supper.  A Cub display followed the supper and  the "Going Up" ceremony- saw Derek* Nelson, Billy Higgs and Mark Evans take a  step forward in the world of scouting; __ny_jr<'  Rennie'was presented .with his��� 2nd class  badge by District C^mn^ssioner Phil Law-  ?8^^����i^ii��^  tence;'  ���*����H-* _ik  FIVE MEMBERS of the RCMP, together    arrived'and "the^  with an auxiliary officer rushed to Gar; ,ers. out, iTwp/^eitiiber-^bf J.,the fbrc^ stayed  den Bay last Saturday evening when- trou-f around to make ,_ur_.;;there';was\;'^;,'-T.epiti-'  ble broke:put between. local residents and; xti  a group of mptprcyclists f rom, Vancouver - the local folk .who ���were quite, hostile,"-c<'^  and Powell Rivcrl ;'"./'.

He   is'the .fteyP  Canon  Alah  Greene,   who  was   born in  Qr'iliia, Qniarip on Feb. 18, 4889.  It was hardly surprising that he and  his, brqther, the Rey. Canon Heber Grreerie  went into theHhurch, for they we?e born  into a family with strdng ties with the  church, Their father, . who was born in  Ontario, ���was the Rev. Canon Rlcliard  W. E. Greene, rector of St. James' Church,  Orillia, who wa3 Stephen Leacock's inspiration for the character of Dean Drone in  Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town. Their  paternal grandfather was *Dr. Thoni-��  Green, I.L.D., a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, who came to Canada and was  ordained in the Diocese of Toronto. Their  maternal grandfather was Canon Alexand4  er Sanson,, who came to Canada from  Scotland and became rector of Little Trini;  ty, Toronto. With a nePhew, Rev. Canon  Robt. Green of Calgary, this means that  there have, been four generations of the  Green family in the ministry of the Cana-  dian church. '  Canon Alan Greene graduated from  Toronto University with a BA and studied  at Wycliffe College for his diploma in  Theology. From 1911 to 1914, he spent each  , summer on the B.C. coast running the..nus-  sion ship Irene for the Columbia' Coast  Mission. He was ordained as a Deacon  by Bishop De Pencier in Christ Church in  1912, and a year later joined John Antle  as a priest on the Columbia. In 1914 he  returned to Toronto where, for two years,  he served as assistant to Dr. H. J. Cody  at St. Paul's Church. This was- an inspiring and stimulating experience for the  young cleric, for Dr. Cody was one of the  great Anglicans of that day and one of  Canada's  greatest preachers.  But the call of war was pressing in  on Alan Greene. He. believed implicity in  the righteousness of^the Allied cause and  in 1916 became chaplain to the 123rd Btn.  10th Royal Grenadiers and later to the  125th Brantford Battalion. He spent the  last yeaRof the war in France, Belgium,  and with the Canadian Army of Occupation  on the Rhine.  Discharged from the army in 1919, he  returned to Canada, married his wife Gertrude and returned, to the Columbia Coast  Mission; During the next 17 years; while  he patrolled the whole southern area of the  mission territory, his family made its  home at Quathiaski Cove on Quadra Island.  His patrol area extended from Pender  Harbour and Campbell River north as far  as Cape Scott, and Seym  the inspiration and example of working  under that remarkable man, John Antle,  who had founded the Columbia Coast Mission in 1905 and in the course of a very  few years, had built four hospitals and  two hospital ships which were to travel  hudreds of thousands of miles to bring  healing and comfort���to the early loggers,  fishermen and settlers.  Canon Green's first ship was a sturdy  36 ft boat, the Madehewi, but he then  organized a fund-raising campaign which  yielded $6,000 to build the 35 ft. Rendezvous and this-was the ship in. which*he  sailed until he succeeded John Antle as  superintendent in 1936. s  During his 23 years asr superintendent,,  he made Pender Harbour his marine base,  while his family lived in Vancouver. His  brother, Canon Heber Greene served with  him for 13 years as chaplain of the hospital  ship Columbia. Three churches were built  on Cortes Island and one at Campbell  River. The hospitals at Pender Harbour,  Rock Bay, Alert Bay and Carriden Bay  were maintained and three medical clinics  were established at Whaletown, Kingcome  and Village Island. The two latter clinics,  with resident nurses in charge, served the  Indian, population, At, Village, Island, near  Alert. Bay, Mis. Kathleen O'Brien' built  ��� Huyatsi, a solari&m, and devoted 30 years  of her life tomaHinB H a sanctuary of  healing and learning. She was awarded  the 'M.B.E, for her devoted services to  tho, Indians of the B,C, coast,  ��� At- Its peak, the Columbia Coast Mission  7 accepted . the responsibility of medical  service to 15,000 people,, Including 1,500  Indians, and offered the only medical  service in many isolated settlements along  the inlets ��nd Islands'of the, cpqst, The  hospital ships at* .that time wore making  .   _ ��     v'Vi i . - L_._ __'    . ��.._____.__  Rev. Canon Alan D. Greene  105 ports of call, mostly to small logging  camps. But now things have changed. With  most of the small camps gone and with  improved methods of communication and  transportation, the need for the hospital  ships no longer exists.  -During 48 years as a marine missionary, Canan Greene made many friends  among the people of the coast. Oldtimers  to whom he has ministered for many  years, children he has christened, couples  he has married and men and women he  has comforted in times of sorrow, ail greet  him as a dear and trusted friend when  he visits them. It was an indication of the  affection in which he was held that when-  his retirement was announced in 1959, the  people of Pender Harbour presented him  with a cheque for $1,200. He received another cheque for $1,100 from the 125th  Brantford Battalion to whom he had ministered as Chaplain 41 years before. These  generous gifts enabled him and Mrs.  Greene to take a trip to Europe. It was  on the return journey, when they stopped  to visit their youngest daughter, Catherine  at Canso, Nova Scotia, that his wife was  taken ill and died. He returned alone to  the retirement home which he had built at  Redrooffs. In 1962, he married his wife  Dorothy while on a visit to England.  For Can^m Greene, retirement "has  meant a continuation of his service to his  fellow man. He built the Church of His  Presence at Redrooffs with contributions  and largely with voluteer labor. He helped  raise money by broadcasting stories of  the coast and its people for the CBC. He  has served on the board of St. Mary's  Hospital Society ever since the society took  over the operation of St. Mary's Hospital.  -He is chaplain of Branch 112 (Pender Harbour) of the Canadian Legion and of Secheit Boy Scouts. He is chairman of a committee which is earnestly striving to establish housing for senior citizens in the Secheit district, and he is chairman of Redrooffs Road Centennial  committee.  Looking back over 78 years of his life.

TO HAWAII  After a nine-week trip to Hawaii, Mr.  and Mrs. Bob Wilkinson are at their Welcome Beach home with somewhat mixed  feelings. They visited Kauai where they  enjoyed the sunshine, the 70 degree temperatures and the excellent food. They  continued on to Maui, but there Mrs. Wilkinson was taken ill and rushed to hospital  for surgery. After that experience she had  to recuperate for three weeks before she  was able to continue to Honolulu. There,  after a few days rest, she was able to fly  home. She considers she was most fortunate in having such a lovely spot/at La  Heina, Maui, for her recuperation.  Still basking in the sunshine of Hawaii  ���_��y Mary Tinkley  and swimming every day, is Don Ross who  sends greetings to all his friends and neighbors.  NEW FILMS  On March 7, Program 10 of documentary films to be shown at Welcome Beach  Hall wi|l include the National Film Board's  widely acclaimed feature film, "Nobody Waved Goodbye." Filmed in Toronto,  it is a study of teen-age conflict and  sources of delinquency m an affluent society. A short film in color "Down Through  the Years," gives a contrasting view of  the older Montreal with the new pulsating  growth. Members of this group who were  disappointed at missing "Labrador Diary"  and "Batu Caves" when the projector  broke down on February 21, will be happy  to learn that an extra program will be run  at the end of the series including all the  films that have been missed for any reason.

This makes it  possible to divide the Grade 8 class which  makes up one-third of our school population.  A welcome addition to our lunch hour is  hot soup sold ih the Home Ec.

Many thanks to our swinging deejays  Claire Donley, Cheryl Clay, Fay Girarjjl,  Terry Cameron, Kathy, MacKay. who lufj$  up our free time at school by spinning our1  favorite discs over the PA.  In this column we hope to include a  run-down on the backgrounds of our teachers. So in our Spage Age vernacular, we  take you to our leader Mr. Skelton, the  principal of, our school. .  Mr. Skelton was born in Vancouver and  received his elementary, and high school  education there. He went to Normal School  in Vancouver and the next year began his  teaching career in the Chilcotin where he  stayed, for a year. He then moved to Britain River tot another year. (Attention Mr.  ���Dunlop: He thinks he was the last teacher  there). Then it was,off to Europe for an  extensive tour. When he; returned, it was  to UBC to get his R.Ed. The next year  saw him, and his bnde, in North Vancouver.. From there he went to the Okanagan  where he advanced to a vice-principalship.  It was an easy step then to take over  Pender Harbour, High as principal.  Since this is centennial year and there  is  a   controversy  regarding  "O Canada''  ns our national anther, I Jhoijght perhaps  'the readers would bo interested ih hearing  some of our students' opinions on this mat*  ter. Here are some of tho comments: "It's  a good ono. It tells what tho land is all  about   In   one   dong,"    "Pretty    good."  "Okay." "Sure, sounds all right." "Leave  It," Pretty good. Arouses mo to patriotic  feelings."  "I  gucs  it's  all  right.   Never  thought about it." From Mrs, Fnlr: "I like  it. I also like the new one. It has 'lots,.pi,  pop. Somo of the \vords to "0 Canada"  could   bo   changed   because   they   might  worry the French Canadians," From Mrs,  Whlttaker:   "J  llko  it.  I also like  "Tho  Mnplo Leaf Forever,"  It represents  tho  country," That la pretty well all of tho  favorable , comments.  Now for tho other  s|do of tho coin,  "It .portrays Canada ns ft 'chicken'  co-ntryrvory-stodRyrThowords-makcCan'i  ndn out like a friend you wouldn't want to  Invito to o, cocktail party, Tho tjmo Is  monotonous and It goes on Just monotony,  monotony," ��  SpcnklnR for myself, 1 llko "0 'Cannd��."

General plan of the  proposed course has been mapped out and  will include three greens to start together  with club house and parking area.  A great deal has yet to be done but the  directors feel the project will soon reach  fulfilment and will prove of tremendous  benefit to the entire Peninsula, particularly  from the point of view of encouraging tourism.  To speed up progress, memberships are  needed in order to provide funds. A great  deal has been accomplished, more has yet  to be done and, the support of all who  seek progress is sought now.  Applications  for  membership may  be  made tiirough the following: Frank New-  "ton,"Ed Alder son, Be^  Morrison or Margaret Evans.

About a year  and a half ago, a deputation from council  made a visit to Victoria and investigated  possibilities of obtaining the timber rights,  estmated to be worth about $50,000.  The deputy minister of lands and  forests at that time advised that should  council expand its boundaries to bring  the property within the village, council  could then ask the minister to deed the  land, including timber rights, over to the  village. This could be tione by" order in  council should the minister feel set inclined.  . Subsequently,! resident of the West  Porpoise Bay area were petitioned with  the result the expansion was approved  last year. From that time on, the council  ���* sat on the project and did nothing more  despite frequent mumblings of another  visit to Victoria.  Some time ago, a further application  was actually sent to Victoria asking that  consideration be given to including an  adjacent block of Crown property in with  1472, the whole for recreational purposes and to include a public golf course.

Should he be unqualified and inefficient it is too bad for  both council and the. community as a  whole. On the other hand, a qualified,  efficient^ clerk proves a tremendous asset  to the district.  In 1963 legislature was passed that  municipal clerks had to have diplomas in  municipal administration. This has never,  been enforced, simply because a large  number of communities throughout the  province would suddenly find themselves  minus a clerk.  . Perhaps the time has come to remove the gloves. Those without such  qualifications have had ample time to  study and sit for the diploma, they also  get the opportunity to -attend conventions annually from which is gained a  great deal of valuable knowledge.  Those who chose to ignore these  opportunities are obviously not interested and should be removed. It costs a little  more to hire the services of a qualified  clerk but the amount of money he saves  the community through his know ledge  far outweighs his salary. This has been  proven by council of Gibsons and appreciated by the ^newly formed regional  district boardAvhich has made certain of  obtaining the services of a well qualified  administrators     r  The fact that council of Secheit should  have been advised to overlook possibilities pf .obtaining close to $100,000 work  of timber without even making enquiries  is abominable.

Letters to the Editor must carry a signature ana  address, although �� pen-name may be used foi  .  ���   > publication. ���;  Excellent article  Editor, The Times:  Sir���Having read in The Times of the  disgraceful treatment being accorded, to  the nation of Rhodesia by Briton's Prime  Minister Harold Wilson, consisting of your  editorial entitled "Rhodesia Stabbed in  the Back," Barry Jenk's letter critizing  that editorial, and J. S. Browning's letter  expressing divergent views with Mr. Jenks,  I feel constrained to offer some further information on this subject.  Firstly, I want to say that I consider  your editorial an excellent article and  quite true to the facts as they exist. I have  read all that you say and much more to  substantiate iU from thoroughly dependable  sources. But. before giving any statistics, I  desire to express my personal opinion on  the despicable way that Harold Wilson  seems to be trying to" destroy Ian Smith,  and in fact the whole Rhodesian community. My understanding of. the British Commonwealth when it was formed Was that  each participating country was free and  equal, that Briton no longer held any  authority over any other member but became simply a sister nation in the association of free and equal nations* If what  she is doing to Rhodesia is legitimate, then  she. could just as well say to Canada, "Do  thus and so because I say you must"  Now, may I add a few facts to those  already stated'in your editorial:  ���Africans are not barred from the  vote.  ���^-Africans can.stand for Parliament;  ���Measures to thwart, at the outset,  any proposed, racially discriminatory  legislation are part of the law of the land.  *������." ���The entrenched clauses of the Constitution (including anti-discriminatory measures) cannot be altered without the approvals, established by referenda, .pf each of  the four main racial groups.  Any qualified African can stand for  election to Parliament, and can even be  the head of state.  When the British settled in Rhodesia,  some sevently years ago, there were  400,000 native Africans in what is now .  Rhodesia. This population has grown to  over 4,000,000, which is a phenominal rate  of growth. This increase is due in great  measure to the influx of Africans from surrounding areas because of the attractive  advantages available. Of the 4,000,000  Africans, about 500,000 are from outside  Rhodesia, working on contract, and are not  entitled to any say in Rhodesian affairs.  2,600,000 are under  21  years  of  age   and  therefore* have   no'right' to "any say   in  government. This leaves only 900,000 adult  Africans, and 700,000 of these live in the  tribal reserves under the: complete authority of the tribal chiefs. (There is an effort  being made to bring the tribal chiefs into  the government by creating an Upper  House of Parliament consisting entirely of  native, chieftansj. There are, therefore,  200,000" urbanized Africans entitled to vote  if the One-man one-vote principle is accepted. Most Of these .200,000 could all be voting  now if they registered. Comparatively few '  Africans enrol and use their electoral  rights (a faet ignored by the critics of  Rhodesia): The reason the majority of  Africans have little interest in political  voting, they have been terrorized by the  revolutionaries, or they do not want to  accept the taxation responsibility which  must be accepted if voting rights are obtained. (I wonder how many Canadians  would forego voting" ��� rights to escape  taxes)." ;        i " "."'���     !   .  ' :"<'  Rhodesia is one of the showcases of  stable government in Africa.' It was, and  is, moving rapidly toward expanded suffrage and improvement Of the standard of  living for the native population.

In 1985 the following wore added:  ���58 new primary schools; 20 additional  secondary schools;   ,; ' '  Planned to ho open in 190(3:  ���9(5   additional   primary   schools;   13  additional secondary schools.

There are volumes more to refute  and discredit the babblings of those who  have been utterly brainwashed by the  propaganda of those seeking to bring about  utter chaos in our world, today.  A thought which constantly forces itself  upon me is "Why has the African not long  since developed a civilization and culture  to equal, or perhaps surpass1; that of any  other race?': He has had the same number  of centuries in a land teeming with natural  resources. The answer would seem to be  that the Creator (for His own good reasons) did not endow him with the capabilities for such development. There is much  that could be said to demonstrate this  fact, but suffice it now to say that it is a  fact -when we should duly consider in our  endeavors to elevate the black race to a  higher level. I am. sure God has a purpose  and a blessing for these people, but as yet  we have not comprehended His will. Rhodesia and Soiith Africa have done and are  doing (with great success) more than all  the rest of" the "world for. the advancement  and uplift of. the black people. And we  heap upon theni the most dispicable abuse  for their efforts. Instead, we should be  daily praying for their, success. It is quite  evident that the schemes and efforts of  most others are bringing only grief and  suffering.  BESSIE G.  HIND,  Vancouver.

' '  S^r���One of the crudest tactics of the  "Crush Rhodesia Movement" is found in  the cynical cancelation, of massive health  programs of the UN's World Health  Organisation and designed specifically to  aid Rhodesia's black population.    ,,,���..*,.,-���,,  According to a preps release from Rhodesia's Secretary of Health, Dr.'V'Mark  Webster, the UN agency has cancelled its  project?: of fighting malaria in Rhodesia  and stopped sending doctors, workers and  supplies. Similarly, the World Health  Organization 6f the UN has ended its participation in Rhodesia's��� fight against malnutrition among .Rhodesials natives and  has even, coased providing, the Rhodesian  government with routine notification of  possible   dangers   to   expectant   mothers  who take certain, antihistamine drugs.  This ���cynical move of the UN indicates  a patently political interest in world affairs  on the part of an agency supposedly dedicated to .humanitarian causes. One might  well ask the .UN���are the black babies of  Rh.odesia any less human than .the babies  of Poland, Cuba and Yugoslavia who continue to receive aid? x  While Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson donates a bow tie to help raise, funds  for the Quaker group sending medical aid  to North Vietnam and the Viet Cong (via  the USSR) may I suggest that he also  donate to the Milk for Rhodesia Fund of  Canada which has stepped in to do the  job created by the withdrawal of funds,  -information and workers by the so-called  impartial World Health Organization of the  U.N.  JOHN   STONE,  985 Broughton Street,  Vancouver 5, B.C.  For what is right  Editor, The Times  Sir���It must be very, obvious that your  correspondent Barry Jenks (Feb. 8th) has  given little attention to the real facts of  the Rhodesian' situation, although he is  well up in the' propaganda supplied by Britain -in her attempt to overthrow the so-  called 'rebel'.

The 1966 zonal general meetings of the  ratepayers, were .held in spring, transacting normal business and holding elections,  where required. The Board of Trustees for  1966 was composed as follows:  J. E. Parker (Zone 3), chairman; F.  West (Zone"2), secretary-treasurer; M: J.  McMillan (Zone 1), trustee; N. R. McKib-  bin (Zone 2), trustee; F. W. Stenner (Zone  2), trustee; H. B. Gordon (Zone 3), trustee;  S, A. McDonell (Zone 4), trustee.

As mentioned in our last gear's report  to the ratepayers the "trustees are giving  their full support to St. Mary's Hospital  Society to provide for ah extension of the  present hospital, which is proving more  and more insufficient to cope with, the  rapidly rising demand for hospital services  in the area. We have been advised that .the  average occupancy during 1966 was well  oyer 80 percent with extended periods exceeding 90 percent and 100 percent and requiring the need for extra beds being put  up. When planning for the present hospital  was, under way, about six or seven years  ago, the projection of hospital days required for the .present period indicated about  10,000 patient days.- In actual" fact St.  Mary's Hospital experienced an occupancy  in 1966 in excess of 11,100 patient days. The  trustees of the district, therefore, are firmly convinced"that an enlargement of the  hospital is urgently needed and have given  active support to the brief submitted by  the Hospital Society to the provincial government; ThiSifView of* the ^trustees and the ;  Hospital Society was fully sustained by the  research branch of the B.C.H.I.S., and  after a delay of many months word was received from Victoria that "approval in  principle" has befgh given to start active  planning for the addition of 13 beds for  accute care and abdu^io^beds for extended"  care, the latter subject to further study  by the authorities. The construction committee of, St. Mary's Hospital Society, on  Which two district trustees serve, has gone,  into action immediately and is at presents  drawing up plans with the architects for  submission to Victoria. Progress reports  ���will be made to the ratepayers in due  course.  -       : ���  Late last year the district received final ^audited accounts for the 1963/64 hospital construction, ,and as , promised�� the  following information is. passed on,to the  ratepayers.     ,"���'���' ':'2 ��� ^f ���'<  CONSTRUCTION COST  Building incl, architect's fees and clerk  of works' remuneration $905,707; Fixed  equipment outside prime contract $8^886;  Land, land development and landscaping  $41,380; Equipment and supplies $128,521;  Working capital and unalL chgs. $14,258;  Interest on bank ldan $4,719; Total cost  $1,103,521.     . .

Because of the manner in which federal  and provincial grants are made available,  It was necessat-y to obtain bank credits  at various times and in various amounts  during the construction period. The district  has been advised that for reasons unknown  the provincial government does not consider Interest on such brink loans ns "shareable ���costs'1' and disallows them when calculating their grunts. St. Mary's Hospital  Society was forced, therefore, to appeal to  the district for grant-in-aid to meet this  charge, ns no funds were loft in, tho construction accounts. The trustees after due  consideration nnd lengthy discussion have  approved a grant of $4,747, which sum was  included into tho 1967 estimates.

"Once the programs have been agreed  upon, they will be pressed with vigor," he  said. "They are going to succeed no matter what the obstacles because they will  enrol the Indians themselves to make them  succeed, and no one in Canada has a greater incentive than the Indians themselves."  The exact amendments to be introduced  will be decided after the meeting of the  Indian Advisory Council in April.  Mr. Laing noted that the Indian population is rising at such a rate that the present reserves are reaching the point where  they cannot support the population. He  urged the Indian people themselves to develop the resources of the reserves to generate the maximum possible emptoyment  and income. Such development would also  provide a practical training ground for the  Indian people in the arts of management,  administration  and  operation of  business  , The minister, sa,i|, "we>khow the reserves will have to Johtihue to- be centres  of Indian community, life for many years  to come, but reserve* communities will not  be the only place Indians live.

One was not to let  Lome Wigard fish from my boat again,  as the last time he. shared my boat he took  all the fish and I got skunked. -i  Well it. took a while but I got some  measure of revenge.  A couple of Saturdays ago I was mooching up at the waterfall in Bargain Harbour.  Lome was sitting in his freshly overhauled  14-foot run-about, riding nicely at anchor.  He had his two rods over Uie side and  his net at the ready, in anticipation of a  ���scrappy spring. The weather was a little  nippy and the wind was making it difficult for me to hold my "10-foot yacht"  steady. The fact that I did not have my  boat heater and my hands were almost  numb didn't help matters.  An hour or so had crept by when Lome  " hollored over and asked if I wanted to tie  up behind his boat. I pounced on the offer  like a dog coming in from the Cold and  after a few minutes of hand rubbing, the  feeling started to return to my finger tips.  Just as I began to feel comfortable,- my  rod tip gave a couple of quick dips and  then "slack line." I grabbed the rod and  ^    started to reel as fast as I could; after I  ' had retrieved about 30 feet or so I caught  up to. my caller^and I set  the hooks.  I  shouted to Lome to cut me loose and began  to play my salmon. Ten minutes later 1  was heading back towards Lome with a  seven-pound spring safely in the boat.  I pulled in behind Lome and he threw  me the line along with a couple of remarks such as "Lucky," "My fish," etc.  No more than, five minutes passed before  I again hollered at Lome to cut me loose.t  Another battle and another spring, this  one a bit bigger.  This time as I rowed gently towards  his stern he threw some more remarks  but for some reason no line. When I was  within about ten feet of his boat I hit into  another one which promptly left, leaving  me with bare hooks.  I guess that was the straw that broke  ��� the camel's back because Lome informed  me that my  mooring  privileges  had for  all times ceased. Oh well,  the wind had  died, I had two fish in the boat and need-  v less ;to say, Lwas feeUng quite a, bitwarm-  er.  An hour or  so  passed  before   Lorne  hooked a fish, Ms only bit action that day.  I wonder if it was a fisherman who coined  the phrase "the sweet taste of revenge."  I spent part of last week travelling all  over our Peninsula making the final ar-  ; ^angements for the Sunshine Coast Chin  ook   Salmon   Club.   The   enthusiastic   response I received was not only surprising  but very gratifying. The amount of building renovating and remodeling going on at  almost every motel and marine really surprised me. Everyone seemed to be getting  into the act. The new marina at Smitty's,  the new floats, at Fisherman's Cove Resort,  the road work at Love's Marina, the expansion at Vic's Motel, the new cafe and store  at Egmont, the trailer facilities at Duncan  Cove to mention just a few.  ..,���,.,The; days^yof, run-down shacks. and inade-  quate facilities for the tourists" are coming  to an end. here on the Peninsula., The Sunshine Coast is rfast- becoming the vacation  land in' B.C. and the resort and marina  operators   who offer   modern,   clean  and  ' courteous ��� service are our greatest asset,.  and their greatest asset is a happy and  sajjsfi_d"'.., guest A visitor to the Sunshine  Coast who; is treated like a  "kingv will  return vand j'more often than not he will  bring someone with him and it is apparent  that most of the- resort operators, etc., are  out to prove that the Sunshine Coast is a  year-round 'vacationland, ,       ;,' ���      ,,;  The fishing is year-round arid last week  proved to be fairly good for a few anglers.  Wally Erickson, Davis,, Bay; took a 1, 12  and a 29V- mooching last Tuesday evening  at Sargeant Bay. Chuck Jones, Secheit,  , weighed in three fish at Haddock's on Sunday, tops 14,8. Quite a few fish taken all  around the Pender area but I would not  call it red hot yet. A couple more weeks  shpuid tell the tale^ Heard of a couple of  springs bei^g taken up at Narrows Inlet so  it-houldn't be long before they are down  r , in Porpoise Bay.,,Down Port Mellon way  not too much action but the odd nice fish  coming ashore., Earl's at Gibsons reported  four springs last week coming from Port  Mellon, tops around 35.

A letter from Victoria had advised that  an application had -been received for logging rights. This might* prove beneficial  to the village when it finally decides to  clear the area, it pointed out.  -  Council when told by the clerk that it  would be out of the question for council to  obtain the timber, agreed to go along with  the suggestion that the application be. approved but selective logging be carried  out and the area cleared up afterwards.  A previous council had been told by a  deputy minister that there are ways by  which village could obtain title to both  land and timber and had been working to  this "end. ���  Chamber executive moved a letter be  written the Department of Lands and Forests registering protest and asking information as to how the timber could be deeded over to the village.
