IMWCb 65  GISONS Village Chairman Wes Hodgson  , expressed' surprise at last meeting, of  council on learning that approval had been  given for construction of a garage in a residential area of a somewhat larger size than  usual;  Protesting the fact that a building of 450  sq. feet and 14 feet high could very well  be utilized as a workshop, Mr. A. Barnes  Of Gower Point-Road also complained that  the resident/involved, Mr. 0. Peterson,  has two driveways t6 his property which  not know^and was not interested. The contract' waST"let' ahd that is it," he said.  Comm. Feeney reported that recent6  heavy fain' had held up road work but the  pavers were doing well under the circumstances. ;  He said he had received a number of  complaints regarding dumping of old autos  in lanes.

Village clerk, Charles Gooding explained that there is no bylaw against two  driveways but the usual rule is one only.  Chairman Hodgson said the plans had  not been brought before council "They  will be in future and I would like it known  that this is a ruling from the chair," he  said.  Mr. Barnes argued that two driveways  are" not allowed elsewhere, _ilso allowing a  garage of such size is not fair to other  residents. "You might as well let everyone  start building 14-feet-high garages," he  said.  council would be in a position to prosecute.

Comm. Fred Feeney explained that  apartment blocks are classed as residential  buildings but he was surprised to learn of  the two driveways and would investigate  the situation. The chairman agreed, stating he was -surprised and concerned to  learn it has been passed.  It was suggested that due to the ab-  sense of Building Chairman Comm. Jim  Drummond, the matter be held over to the  next meeting during which time the public  works and building committee will look  into the matter and report back. Mr.  Barnes was invited to attend.  The chairman asked that all 1967 permits be brought up before next meeting  of council for approval.  Stating he had had a number of phone,  calls from people who. preferred to withhold their names, the chairman said^ they  wished to know how much per cord the village had received for timber on the site  of the new reservoir.

Residential use  Regional Board approves  Egmont lease application  FIRST item on the agenda at the last meeting of the regional district, held in the  new quarters at Davis Bay, March 31 was  an application io lease Hand at the Skoo*  kumchuck for residential purposes.  Lands branch superintendent notified  the regional board of the application and  asked for comments on the situation.  Two lots, each of 100-foot frontage were  involved and although a lack of detail was  enclosed, directors decided the applications  applied'to property on the side of the channel across from Egmont, and not commercial.  Directors agreed with the chairman  Norm Watson, that there was no, reason  for objection and'moved approval providing access, would be-available to any pub-'  lie parks.  Director Cliff Gilker suggested that in  future, the clerk clip out any such lease  applications as advertised in local papers.  Drawing attention to the recent attempt to  lease Davis Bay waterfront for commercial  , purposes, he explained that the applications of a detrimental nature could quite  easily slip through. He also drew attention  to the fact that'an application was already  advertised for land to be used as a holly  farm and suggested this perhaps would  be worthy of Investigation;  Chairman Watson said lie could sec no  harm arising from a holly farm which  would be some years under development.  * ,0n the subject of the .Skookumchuck, the  chairman Nald he had been' told by MLA  Isabel Dawson that plans were underway  ���to push through an access road, to the area. -  Director John Dunlop of Kgmont said he  was aware of the proposal but had been  given to understand, the member did not  want publicity at this time,  \ Members of the press agreed to check  .with, Mrs. Dawson before publicizing the  matter, since when, it it has been announced at n public meeting by Mrs, Dawson who said local loggers were being  approached for estimates providing an access to Ihe Skookumchuk. f  Plan to establish another job by the  school board received the cold shoulder.

As bids have to be in to the Dept. of  Public Works by April 27th it is assumed  the project will be under construction in  the near future and, no doubt, completed  this summer.  Many doubts have been' (cast as to  whether such a project can be completed  for the budgetted sum of $220,000 but general opinion of those who have worked  toward the facility feel that once started it  will naturally be completed and that no  government would be likely to leave such  ^job half completed, and most contracts  'leave room for contingencies.

Needs More!"-1 admit I wasn't too attentive, what with piling cordwood and all,  but I did listen some, and I never heard  this" character say just what it is he thinks  B.C. needs more of. So it looks to. me as  if the traditioal campaign promise which  heretofore has always had some semblance "  of substance is'now on a,par w|l;h an^,r,n|b;j  of-the-miil   Madison   Avenue iBla^|jj^s|i  toothpaste is 40 per cent mpj^70t^0e0  this corn oil has 60 per cent less ���l^'.'JJ.'C.  needs more. ',  ]  I have seen the pie-in-the-sky technique  develop. I have watched the new style pf  vote-'gettirtg amiability learn how to fill the  air nvith the sweet scent of ��� regimented  benefits and settle into a routine, but until  this year a candidate always seemed to  have something in jnind. It was the old  folks, or the, young folks, or some folks, and  you knew whether it was in education or  welfare, highways or foreign trade. This is  the first general invitation I've noticed���  a chance for the entranced voter to write  .his own joyful, ticket. B.C. needs moif-  (fill in the blank). -V  What B.C., and I suppose, any province  really needs, of course, i_��less. A good  deal less. I think we seed as much less  as politicians seem to think we need more.  Perhaps even more less than that. And  fewer. I believe a good' many fewer, here  and there, would help. Less, fewer, and not  so much. This, I know, is not progress, and  leadership, ahd forward-looking vision, and  consequently is not good politics, but it is  a theory I hold to ih the quiet of *my meditations.  I can remember withsome warmth the  firsl^politician I ever met, and on that  occasion he nailed down a vote ,without  promising a single thing. He was the MLA,  and he came to see my grandfather. There  was no radio and television then, and the  supermarket sell was far in the future.  Candidates, then, made up their own remarks and reached their own decisions-  there were no speech writers, psychologists  to advise about projections; and assistants  to plan ahead." Our MLA got off the boat,  hired a rig at the livery stable, and rode  out through the back country to call on  people. He didn't have any banner on his  vehicle, or a squawk-horn to announce his  purpose. Grandfather and I were cultivating corn. ' *������"-' /   At the precise moment, in fact, we were  sitting on the stone wall under an oak tree  on the knoll to rest Tige. Tige was old and  full of years, and knew how to cultivate.  Sut Granfather and Tige indulged me, for  I was small, and they let me think Tige  needed a driver., Tige know how to plod  down one row "without plunking one of his  big feet on corn, and at tho,��nd-be would  make a wide turn so-Grandfather could'get  the handles of the cultivator ^ swung about,  and then Tige would plod the other way.  With a grainbag over Tige's pitebj-roof  backbone for the closest we evp came to  a saddle, I would thus sit aloft and "drive"  Tige. I had no reins, and the only thing to  hahg to was the clipped mane, but I could  shout gee and haw, to which Tige, paid no  heed, and I could rowel him with my bare  ���ieeis, to which he paid likewise. I was a  obig .belp. But we had cultivated that morning, and as the sun warmed up we took a  breather, and Gramp and I were on the-  cstipne wall and Tige was pulling grass along  We edge of the piece. Then we saw r this  man coming up" the lane from the house.  We saw him turn a couple of times, and  look over the fields. H�� seemed to admire  tbe piece of buckwheat, and: at the corner  of the orchard he found himself a green  apple. He came along chewing at it, and  the blowing out the chewed-up the way you  do.vYou could see that he knew how to  handle green apples. By that time Gramp  knew who he was, and by the time the  man was half-way up the corn piece Gramp  called hello at him. He called back, "Good  morning, Thomas���you've got a good day  for; it!"  He shook hands with me in all the dignity of ambassadorial protocol, tousled my  hair, antl said I was a good boy. Then  he spanked old Tige on his rump and came  around to lift his muzzle and look in at his  teeth. The MLA and Grandfather both  laughed then, because Tige definitely had  40 per cent fewer, and maybe even more.  Tige was more than three times as old as  I was, then. Anyway, the MLA sat on the  stone wall with us and he didn't promise  anything. He didn't say he would change  everything and bring us .all sorts of good  things. I remember he got a knife from  his pocket and picked up a stick and  whittled at it while he talked. He listened to  Gramp and Gramp listened to him.  He^finally shut his knife together and  stood up. He told Gramp to let him know  whenever there was anything to write  about, and he shook toy; hand again as if.  I wereTthe personal envoy of some  tate, and he waiked down the lane again  switching at daisies with the stick he had  obeen whithng. I thought he was an awful.  mce man.  Maybe that's what B.C. needs more of.

Lois and the kids were along for a  good time and I was after the oluslve steelhead, perhaps the word elusive gave you a  clue as to how I made out.  Early Saturday morning I was perched  ,on a bit of a cliff. I believe the trail to the  river has only been used by mountain  goats and crazy anglers, overlooking one  of the nicest pools I have over laid eyes  on. The river was a clear as glass (so ',  cle^r1 in fact that I blamed this for my  getting skunked) and I could see three  beautiful doe gently carressing the bottom.  I was down the bank as fast as a runaway boulder and in the 'matter of a few  seconds I had the roe on my hook and  had made one of my better casts, (you  should see some of my .bad ones). I gently*  bounced the tempting morsel towards my  resting prizes, knowing in my heart that  any   second   Bow,   Kapow! _ Well;. sir,   I  bounced that., roe tight  paist their noses  and the darn things didn't blink' an eye..  The letdown was almost too much for this ���-  humble being to bear. My heart _ahk to my  toes; my warm hands suddenly started to  feel the chill of early morning and if fife',  truth was known,!,.shed,aLsmaU,^ear.;Aft��r:  about five or six such performances -by  yours truly  and  my company of fish, T  guess the supporting actresses got a little  bored. They looked ray way and with a  flick of their massive tails were off to a  less distu/bing spot. ,  I worked that pool every way I knew  how, and a few ways I invented on the  spot, but the result was the same, no takers. Finally after two hours and 10 minutes of frustration I gave in and headed  for another stretch of the river.  The pool to be my next target did not  look half as inviting and the steelhead must  have thought so too. I didn't see one, I  didn't roll one and to add insult to injury  I lost tackle on every third cast.  After deciding it v/as just not going to  be my day, hopes began to brighten. There  was always tomorrow and perhaps April  fool's day was the one day of the year,  that Tom Porter should spent the day in  bed and forget about fishing. Anyway it  ,was0,a.;gQ9d....$eqrya.^  Sunday morning I was back at the pool  I had fished .the day previous. This time as  I looked into that stretch of water about a  dozen fish gazed back. Today was going to  be my day of revenge.  Well to make a long story short, Sunday  cal  military' reorganization   in  the   past  three-years with so little trouble.  The trouble is coming only now, when  it is probably too late to change the direction of defence policy.  The Conservative opposition,, backed by  retired admirals, generals and air marshals, is fighting to defeat unification���the  final step in creation of a single force.  The Bill .now before the defence committee will abolish as such the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force,  and the Royal Canadian Army.  In their places will be a single service  called the Canadian Armed Forces. There  will still be soldiers, sailors and airmen,  but they'll all be members of the single  service. There will eventually be a common uniform and common rank* structure.  The unification bill follows three years  of intensive integration - of the armed  forces. After legislation was passed in 1964  without much opposition, the first steps  towards a single service were taken.  A single chief of staff replaced the old  committee system. The number of military  commands was reduced from 13 to seven,  and the commands were integrated according to "function rather than geography or  service.  This process of integration is now vir^  tually complete. Supporting services, such  as material, transport, medical services,  have been integrated.  Now the government is attemptmg to  take the final step���giving this integrated  service a new name, The Canadian Armed  Forces.  ' All the opposition is now concentrating  on tins current bill. Former serving officers who have resigned or were fired  come before the committee to say that  integration was fine and necessary, but  unification is poison.  They've made a powerful case, these  intelligent, tough-rninded combat officers,  against the government's policy. They  don't want unification. They don't want the  nayy...Joi lose,its identity. They don't want  '''''ewryOne',iC'i_iie"''same uniform. They don't  ivant the "military to be turned into a mobile peace-keeping force armed with billies  and whistles.  They've testified that morale in the  service is at an all-time low, that communications  have ...practically.... disappeared,......,was.'--no--o_iierent.v.To"put-"-it---bluntiyv--i got  John Fall Allison  m  JUPHII lil  ipnee  snakes  o pigs  WHEN. JOHN Fall Allison took his bride  into the Okanagan's Westbank district  in 1872, they found their land overrun with  rattlesnakes. ' {  They heard pigs would keep down rat- s  tiers, so they got pigs. But when the pigs  overran their garden they decided the  rattlers were easier to live with. And neither them nor their children were bitten.  This is one of the stories of the Allisons, who were honored pioneers of the  Okanagan. Their first home near Prince-  tpn was the subject of a painting by Edgar  Dewdney. But Allison is remembered best  for his discovery of Allison Pass used by  the Hope-Princeton Highway in crossing  the Cascades.  Allison was born in Leeds, Yorkshire,  and While still a boy came with his parents to settle in Illinois, sometime around  1848. Ten years later Allison came to the  west in the Fraser gold rush, to seek Ms  ^fortune. ^- '���'���������-���'��������� ���-    ���-   ,������-  Governor James Douglas asked him to  search also for a shorter route between  Fort Hope and the Similkameen. The Allison Trail that he blazed became a major  east-west route for travellers.  ' He married Susan Louisa Moir at Hope  in 1867 and. later took her on an overland'  trek with their first three children into the  Okanagan. But he never forgot the first  impressions; he had of the land near where  . Princeton now stands and eventually that's  where they settled to raise cattle and a.  family of 14 ehildfen. Allison was a pioneer  storekeeper and justice of the peace and  many of his descendants still are scattered  throughout the province.  FRANK E.

But what they consistently attack is integration���the process  that has been going on, for three years,  that many of them developed and carried  out, the process they say is good.   .  This has' given the defence comniittee  hearings a somewhat unreal, air..,    .,;  These expert witnesses say that integration has resulted in economies ahd' efficiencies in the. forces. They're all for it.  But they're against unification. ,t  Then they pinpoint problem areas,,suc_t"'  as morale, the .changing defence roles," promotion systems, command structures,  training methods, which, are the result not  of the proposed unification, but of the integration which has taken, place in'the past  ,������ three 7ears.:. '..-���  These officers are pretending to support  integration while fighting unification, and'  this requires some pretty impressive mental contortions.  It   must   be   admitted,   however,   that  these   admirals,   generals   and   air, mar-  .., shals have successfully'cast unification; in  the light of the supreme evil.  They've been able to do this because  neither Defence Minister Hellyer nor any  serving officer has been able to make a  good strong case for creating a single  service with a common uniform and rank  structure. ;  Peep down, the retired admirals don't ���  really like integration. They've been able  to atta9k it directly by, attacking unification.  It can bo assumed that Mr. Hellyer is  not convinced that tho integration process  has been nailed down firmly pnoiigh, Without tho final,step being taken, serving officers over the next 10 years might be ablo  to dismantle soino of the process.  Furthermore, Mr. Hellyer's underlying  purpose seems to bo to create a distinctively Canadian, force, something that wll].;  bo recognized ns such anywhere in tho  world* For this purpose, tho unification bill  is Indosponsablo, , (  But if you don't accept this as a valid  " purpose, then the Bill becomes something  ^    less than Indispensable.  !

Around Gibsons  mountain in a few brief moments than all  MR.   AND* Mrs. "Ron  Swabey have  sold.  .    ... . , ��� .     their property on Henry Road, formerly,  he open pit ���^'��^Jff^^_X^kiiowa as Cannery Road, where they have  in that .year, (over ^million cubic yards).  |lived for 22 years.  tion.  In total concept conservation implies  the preservation' and enhancement o| the  quality tof our environment and demands  the wise use of our natural resources.  There is, however, a wide variation in the  belief of  what sound conservation ,should  ��� mean and some extreme views favor the  .   idea 'that no use for any commercial purpose is the only method by which the desired level of "conservation can be reached.  There, are situations Where the principle  of none-use can realistically be applied  but here again such wide differences of  opinion exist that there appears to be no  general rifle that is capable of application.  In conservation as in every other aspect  ��� of our modern society we are faced with  the necessity of selecting priorities. The  establishment of a pulp mill in a community is hot an unmixed blessing and while  such an industry undoubtedly improves the  economic stability of the community it  a^so creates problems of air _iid water pol-  ^lution which must be dealt with.  POLLUTION  Pollution as a term lends- itself to a  wide range of interpretation.' People pol- '���-���  lute the air around them every time they  exhale,���close this room off from outside  air circulation and in a period of time  we would find the air had reached the point  of absolute pollution insofar as its capabili- ���  ties to sustain human life were concerned.  Just a word of caution then���in speaking  of pollution,, let us not engage in talking  vague generalities.  The fact that a pulp mill provides a  practical use for much of the timber and  mill waste which was formerly left ih the  bush or burnt in burners at the millsite  is a very real contribution to conservation  because the forest area is now more thoroughly harvested and much less waste  material left lying about to create a further problem.  The province in which we live is- in  the process of rapid development. Change  is a part of that, progress and it is un-  * likely "ffiatJthe-majority:  to halt thisljdevelopment. At the same time  however, v?e should not needlessly and  heedlessly destroy the natural "beauty pf  our land.  "Vyfiile some of the problems of both^air  .,, andlwater pollution,...are...��ffl..the.^subjecl.r,  of research it is obvious that we are making real progress and further progress is  at least in part a matter of continuing  public awareness.  Litter along  our  public, highways,   on  qur streets and in our parks has greatly  diminshed over the past decade but there  is still plenty of room for improvement.  In the provincial campsite-where facilities  for waste .disposal  are- provided  we  are  afble to keep the ���problem under control.  | Therei are many areas of Crown Land  in the province where tamping and picnicking by the public can be enjoyed provided the people using these areas make  their  own   provisions   for  sanitation   and  garbage  disposal. ,A  short-handle   shovel  for this purpose should be required equipment for1 everyone who makes use of such  an area. This should be obvious but the  condition of some of these  areas  clearly  indicates the lack of application of even  these  rudimentary   anti  by, some people  who use the great outdoors.  In some areas of our province, Winter  range is already the key factor that determines the si?.,, health and productivity of  bands of mountain sheep ahd herds, of  moose, elk, deer and caribou.  ���When' flying above our province one  realizes the vast areas that are mountainous and the comparatively small areas of  sheltered valleys and foothills. With the  coming of winter the animals are forced  from the higher;slopes...and must seek food  at the lower>%fels: ��� These lower levels,  however, are whierev we .tend to build our  roads, develop odr' cBlrimiinities and carry  on our. agricultural activity.  Heavy summer and fall grazing by  domestic livestock over the same area as  the wild animals use for their winter,  range can leave the area so depleted of  winter forage that .despite the abundance  of summer range at higher levels the wildlife can be faced with a major threat of  mass starvation in that three or four-  month period of heavy snows. The carrying capacity of many areas of the province is therefore predicated almost entirely on the availability of winter range and  in game management this is one of the  key factors upon which our biologists base  their recommendations.0 for hunting seasons, and antlerless hunting is a necessary  part of game management, since a doe  deer that survives the winter as a bag of  bones is not likely to produce a healthy  fawn.  Here again we come back to the question of. priorities. Which should have the  prior right on these vital winter ranges���  domestic livestock or game animals?  On one side of the question lies the interest of the farmer and rancher whose livelihood in varying degrees depends on the  amount of range available to his cattle  and horses. On the other hand if the winter range is not available to the wild animals in those crucial winter months their  survival is seriously endangered.  Ranges are being set aside for the primary or exclusive use of wildlife but one  of the basic problems is the necessity to  '��� show-the; comparative v  for .-this purpose in terms of dollars and  cents as against the benefit to be derived  from some alternate use.  While some useful work has been carried out in this field, we should remember  . there areJLmportent^..factors in, pur spciety  that cannot be accurately valued in dollars and cents and we cannot accept the  proposition that the dollar yardstick is the  sole measure to be applied in all cases.  It appears evident that in many cases  a variety of uses can be enjoyed oyer a  given land area if there is proper understanding among the various users and a  recognition by each of the other's needs.  In most cases it is possible to sustain  winter ranges in good condition providing  excessive grazing is not permitted. A  range once seriously overgrazed, however,  can require years of careful' management  to again reach its maximum productivity,  yet it should be obvious that maximum  productivity is in the best interests of aU;  range users. .     ,     .  Change is part of nature and if we seek,  in the process of our development" toifepre^  serve the best of our natural envirqnirtent  we must continually seek a better understanding of what makes our environment  tick.  - On occasion we will be confronted with  a situation where no compromise exists,,  the decision not to build the great Morran  Dam on the main stem of the Fraser River  despite the great economic and flood control .^benefits this . project offered, was"  based on the realization that-such a dam  would virtually wipe out the Fraser lUvef -  salmon runs, and the Peace River at a  greater distance from major power load  centres was the practical .alternative.  The decision to establish the Duck Lake  water fowl conservancy near Creston was  made in realization of the fact that if the  area Was not preserved for this purpose-  one of the very few major wiid waterfowl  nesting and resting places in the southern  half of our province would be eventually  wiped out.  In our efforts directed to conservation  we accept that change is inevitable, but  change, if carefully planned, can still preserve the, quality of our environment, and  in our nature conservancy areas spread  throughout the province we can preserve  intact for . our selves and future generations, nature at its best, unaltered by the  hand of man.  Let us not, therefore, concentrate our  attention only on those factors that are  wrong, to the exclusion of the many factors that are right, lest we erroneously  conclude thair-thfligs-are going badly when  in fact that is not the truth.  In 1945 their home was surrounded by  bush but working diligently and overcoming    many    difficulties    and    hindrances,  their combined efforts have resulted .in a  flourishing commercial poultry  enterprise.  The green and' pleasant acre's which now  surround them are a joy to see.  ���'���    Besides  poultry farming,   the  Swabeys  also kept a flock of sheep and  the first  iambs in the area -usually arrived at their  farm-  Mrs. Swabey's mother, Mrs. Duckman-  ton who- lives with them  and is  over 90  years old-is ready to go along in the Swa-  's   newly-acquired   mobile   home   when  the proposed institution.

heard news,of Doctor and Mrs. A. W. Holm.
Dr. Holm'was, our,first resident doctor in

FIRST evidence of underwater mineral
deposits in a B.C. coastal inlet has resulted in a considerable .■•stit. It is of particular importance in this ?area because the
discovery, by a team of, UBC geologists
and bceanographers, was in Jervis Inlet.
The research group, headed by Dr.
James W. Murray, assistant professor of
geology and oceanography* found nodules
of manganese oxides last summer in 1,200
feet of water in the inlet.
Manganese is a valuable mineral for
industrial purposes, and is widely used in
the steel and glass manufacturing industry.  •   „
It is the first time that these minerals
have been found beyond the shoreline in
a B.C. coastal inlet or on the continental
shelf of the Pacific northwest, the doctor
"This is an exciting find, and one which
opens up the possibility that there may be
---aifl_-rwater deposits of minerals of commercial value in B.C. coastal inlets," Dr.
Murray said. He warned, however, that it
would be premature to attempt to mine
these minerals at present,- or t6 assume
that commercial quantities of metals are
available in B.C. coastal inlets.
"In the first place," he said, "This is
an isolated find which only suggests that
there may be other deposits in other inlets. We have no evidence that there are
such underwater deposits elsewhere on the
B.C. coast. In addition, underwater mining is in its infancy. Some techniques for
accomplishing it have been worked out, but
the economics of such an industry are unknown at the present time.
"What we are undertaking presently
is a detailed study of the marine geology
to determine if the minerals are associated
with any special geological conditions;
and a careful study of the geochemistry
of the area- to determine the conditions
under which the metal can form.
, Dr. Murray said the nodules were discovered on the sea bottom 10 miles from
the head of" the inlet atop a submariher
ridge which rises approximately 400 feet
above two adjacent flat-bottomed basins.
They were located by Dr. Murray and a
graduate student, Bob MacDonald, in June
of 1966.
The  doctor  commented:
"The nodules are relatively soft and
couldn't possibly have withstood the rigorous forces of glacial transportation. We
believe, therefore, it is likely they are a
chemical precipitate either from1 sea water
or from water in the sediment.
"We think that the ridge itself was
formed as a result of glaciatio'n approximately 10,500 years ago, a very' short time
in geological terms.
"If these assumptions are correct, we
are dealing with a very rapid rate of manganese deposition."
The concentration of manganese in the
nodules is very high. Tests carried out by
Dr. E. V. Grill, a chemical
at UBC, indicates a value of 38.1 per
manganese oxide. This is a relatively high
concentration in comparison to/th;e average for, nodules discovered elsewhere.
There should be no problems in the metallurgical extraction of the mangae_e.
Dr. Grill said: "The chemical processes
which cause the manganese to precipitate
out and form nodules on the inlet floor
are not'at all clear."
According to Dr. W. H. Mathews, head
of UBC's dept. of geology, any commercial
survey of the incidence of metallic minerals .in coastal inlets would be premature.
Dr. Mathews said: "Much, more basic research needs to be done on underwater
geological and' geochemical conditions be*
fore such a survey would be useful.
"If we could determine the conditions
under which metals would form in specific
instances, we then might be able to predict where it would be useful to look for
undersea minerals."
Dr. Murray said that additional tests
had been carried out to determine if there
were any other minerals present on the
floor of the Jervis Inlet ridge.
"We found that the manganese nodules
Page 6 The Peninsula Times
Wednesday, April 5, 1967    '   , .
         i           —
, also contain major concentrates" of eight
elements, including magnesium, - eopper,
.aluminum, sodium and iron;' minor concentrations of six elements, including zinc,
nickel, molybdenum and 'vanadium; and
traces of seven, elements, Including silver,
lead, chromium and boron."
Dr. Gill stated that on the basis of
present information it appears .that 'the
Jervis Inlet nodules will not differ fundamentally in composition from those found
in other areas of the oceans.

Wg, sigh of relief aiFd' relax,' You're  home   ag#n on  familiar   territory   and  -have left the'hustle end bustle of the big  ,  city "behind, at least until yqur next visit.1  Not fhat<a.jBhort stay in.yancouver-orany '  , other, large city is not an a eiajoyable and  looked forward to break, ih" up-country .  living. It is; providing that one doesn't '  stay rtoo long and can> avoid the heavy *  downtown traffic when going about one's i  business..  Getting together with family and relatives and the occasional visit with old  friends and acquaintances is part of the  enjoyment, as is browsing around the  stores, dining out and taking in the odd  show or night spot. These are some of the  things that one Jooks forward to, but bucking, the congested auto traffic in downtown  Vancouver is another story.  One way streets, traffic signals, no  turn, no left turn, no left turn 4 to 6 p.m.,  watching the car ahead, the ones on either  side, the fellow behind, the pedestrians  (or as Donna Vaughan says, the presbyter-  ians), and all the while keeping a wary  eye open for the boys in blue who might  tag an unsuspecting country cousin for  some unknown traffic violation. Just get  - behind the wheel after having one drink  and sure enough some clown will clobber  you, and try, just try to explain that one  to the traffic policeman who is sure to be,  there at the time.  Attempt to change lanes or turn left  where permissable and a hundred horns  will blare at you, even though your directional signal is flashing like mad for the  last block. At times like this I wish I had  the courage of a friend of mine who got  tied up in a traffic jam on Burrard Bridge  at the height of 5 p.m. traffic. The driver  immediately behind Art had been leaning  on his horn button for the best part of the  five minutes that traffic was stopped, and  needless to say Art was getting madder  at htm by the minute. At lasl he could stand  it rio longer and, just as the traffic was  starting to move aht-ad; Art jumped out,  raced to the car behind, reached in the  open window and withdrew the ignition  key which he promptly; heaved"* Over the  side of the bridge. "Now you have some-  thing to blare about." and with*'these, part-  1 ing words Art climbed into his own car  and took off, leaving the startled driver  to his own devices. ,  .? "Then there's the modern |day.version ���  of annoying happenings at the? movies.  The long-run movie picturizatioh of .TSmes  Michener's best selling novel 'Hawaii' is  well worth the $2.50 admission price, but  not when your seats are immediately behind those of three of Vancouver's chattering females. The chattering did not bother us too much, it was the continual lean-  ing-to-listen-to-what-the-other-was-saying a-  ttitude that interrupted our view. And with  high hair-do's yet; ^o, they were not teenagers but were certainly old enough to have  teenagers of their own.

I      One yery -sieve/e type of food poisoning,  ! 'which fortunately^is' rare,' is called botu-  ' Jism/ Most outbreaks  of  botulism  occur  from the use of home-canned foods which  ^are improperly processed.  '  ' Chemical poisoning of foods 'is not uncommon. For example, if acid foods are  placed in cadmium-plated utensils such as  pitchers or ice trays, sufficient cadmium  is dissolved to cause severe illness.  Another .type of food  poisoning  occurs  1 when  shellfish^ which feed on  poisonous  foods such as sewage, are eaten out of season. Also, plant poisoning, especially from  inedible  mushrooms,   may   cause   severe  illness and even death.  The CMA recommonds the following  precautions to avoid the above-mentioned  types of food poisoning-: (1) When attending public 'gatherings, especially during  the summer, avoid the many questionable  foods..mentioned above if they have been  unrefrigerated more than six hours; (2)  be sure your methods are scientifically  correct and well-advised, if you do home  food preserving; (3) do not eat shellfish  out of season; (4) avoid the combination  of acid foods and cadmium utensils, and  (5) beware of inedible mushrooms.  If you are unfortunate enough to encounter food poisoning, consult your family  physicians promptly, the CMA advises.  FRANK E. DECKER,; D.O.S.

Since we have just gotten over  the Easter holidays I thought this would  be an appropriate way to open my column,  and for" those who share my interest in  etomology, to mention the development of  this word and several others. '  In the Hebrew language shalom means  peace. In Israel it is used as a greeting  meaning both hello and goodbye and is  ierived from the same root as complete-  .uess and holiness. The idea implicit in  this being that of goodwill and 'peace .be  with you' rather than mere,ly a superficial  greeting.  Arabic, which, like Hebrew, belongs to  the Semitic branch ��� of languages, has as  its equivalent 'salaam' which is also an  oriental obeissance. Due to the Arab conquests to spread Islam, the word was carried eastward even as far as Malaysia  where it became in the Malay language  'salong.' British soldiers stationed there  brought it back home as 'so long.'.  Have you ever wondered where the  term 'eavesdropping' originated? In medieval England houses were made with curved  troughs projecjjag^lfut over the sides of  the roof to<?arain away rainfall. These  eavesdrops, as .they were called, made convenient hiding places for the unmannerly  'clods'���they had them then too-^-who were  not averse to standing under these eaves-  drops' to overhear what people were doing  in their own homes.  . One that quite surprised me was the  origin of the word 'teetotaler.' A member  of the Temperance League who was also  a stutterer ardently advocated t-t-t-total  abstinence from all alcoholic beverages.  This amused and was repeated by so many  people that finally the rest of it was dropped and the expression 'teetotaler' was  coined.  There are many expressions we use  without knowing. why. For instance, we  speak of someone being up on his high  horse. This, like eavesdropping, dates from  the age of knights in shining armor. In  those days when a knight prepared for  battle he donned his heaviest armor. To  support bis weight he needed an especially  strong horse. Therefore he would get on  his high" horse" whenever he prepared to  enter into combat. Nowadays whenever a  person is in a deligerent mood ..we say'  he is up on his high horse.  Speaking of horses leads to Lady Godiva.  When she made her famous ride the only  person rude enough or should I say lewd  '.' enough; W peep through the shutters at'tier  ���was" a. taylor named Tom. Hence the name  "Peeping Tom."  The term "hitch hiking'' also has to do  with horses. In the days of shortages two  people often set out on a journey with but  one horse. The first rider would proceed a  few miles, dismount and hitch tiie horse,  Jeavmg it _br Ms walking companion,  while he continued on foot. This combination of hitching and. hiking led to the term  "bitch hiking."  Since we started discussing foreign  words, here are a few more. The expression  "cbeck-mate"  used in   chess   comes  comes from the French m'aidez meaning  "help me." Diabolical originates with the  Greek "Diaboles" cr devil. This world  also .appears in Spanish as Diablo.  Being curious as to the views of my  class mates on foreign languages I asked  them if they had a chance to learn a foreign language which -one they would choose.  It would appear that certain languages;  seem to be more popular than others judging by their' frequent occurrence 'among  the replies I received. Five votes for Italian seems to indicate that the "language  of love" is popular around Pender. Four  voted for Swedish^ and one each for Danish, Latin. Gaelic and German. Two chose.  the French language���may their dreams  come true. Russian received two bids and  Latin only one. Spanish was second in the  running with four votes.  Ole!  Three month jail term  on each oi tour counts  MARSHALL Joseph Billie of Secheit was  sentenced to three months - in Oakaila on  each of four counts when he appeared before Magistrate Charles- Mittlesteadt in Secheit March 29.  Charges, arose on a series of offences  including driving while impaired, driving  while his right to drive was under suspension, intoxication and consuming in a  public place.  Billie, age 22, has been given every opportunity by the police during recent  months but has continued to end up before the magistrate. Each sentence will run  concurrently which means he will serve  only three months.  Vancouver resident, Hans Kessler, employed at Powell River faced two charges  arising from a motor vehicle accident last  January 8 in which he sideswiped another  vehicle while passing on a double__solid  line.  "Both autos were heading for the ferry  and it was agreed the matter be di-epssed  when they were aboard. Since then, police  offncers had been attempting to trace Kess-  ler. Appearing in, court March 29, he was  fined $50 for driving without due care and  attention, and $25 for failure to submit an  accident report.  Peter Charles Emerson of Gibsons,  charged with being a minor in possession  following a dance-at Roberts Creek, also  appeared before the magistrate March 29.  He was fined $50.  a   ****T  I.  *  * j*. ���       _4   �� t ��  ���   _E "  #*a4*-  .V  SI  A*^_  ? -f vV**Vs_       ' 1** * -"���__.*��"}  *���-_-.   -~ -_.-.T--. *v* .- "f- a. __>**  ?*y'7',s\   '  ��� i *A .few  Kwakiutl totem  AT A COLORFUL ceremony on lie  Notre-Dame, a 65-foot Kwakiutl  totem pole carved by Wes't Coast Indians was unveiled in front of the  Indians.of Canada pavilion at Expo  67.

Phono 885-2111 .-__ Ted Farewell  INDIAN dancers in strange masks swayed  slowly to the deliberate beat of the Raven  dance as an exquisitely carved 71-foot  high totem pole was unveiled recently jit  the 1967 World Exhibition's Indians of Canada pavilion.  . The. colorful Kwakiutl ceremony was  performed before Expo 67 Commissioner  General, Pierre Dupuy; Minister of Indian  affairs, Arthur liaihg; Indians"of Canada"  pavilion Commissioner General, Chief Andrew Tanahokate Delisle and a crowd of  attractive Indian hostesses, press and  other .officials.  Heart and soul of the event was a dedicated Kwakiutl family from Thunderbird  Park, near Victoria, B.C. Chief carvers of  the elaborately sculpted totem pole are  father and son team, Henry and Tony  Hunt. Working enthusiastically at the Provincial Museum of British Columbia, the  Hunts carved out the enigmatic masks of  the raven, grizzly bear, killer whale, two  headed snake, hunter and beaver (in ver-  "tical order) in-less than three months.  Henry and Tony were not merely content to take their bows at the unveiling;  they took an active part .in the dancing.  Henry's father, 91-year-old John Hunt was"  there too. Still spry and active, he led the  ensemble of masked dancers and singers  by banging on a large, flat drum.  Henry's wife, daughter of an important  Kwakiutl chief, was also on hand to explain  the meaning of the various dance rituals,  handed down from father to son for many  generations.  Although the main architectural feature  of the $1 million Indians of Canada pavilion is a 100-foot high stylized tepee, the  pavilion tells much more about the Indians than their traditibna Tarts and crafts.  It deals with the dilemma of the contemporary Indian, caught between 20th century North American technology and ancestral moral and philosophical values.  STREAKING SAND  Meteproids are usually fragments of matter about the size, of a pea or even a grain  .^of.^sand.^whte^  around the sun. Sometimes they are pulled  into the earth's gravitational influence.  When this happens; the friction of our atmosphere makes them glow and we see  them as a streak of light across the sky.  ���by Jack Davis, M.P.  BOB THOMPSON has gone. He has stepped.; down as leader of the Social Credit  Party in Ottawa. Some people, are even  wondering whether his going signals the  end of the Social Credit Party itself ��� the  end, that is, on the Federal scene.  i<>      '  '' Bob Thompson, M.P., is a likable man.  He is'also a plausible, TV personality. But  Bob Thompson as,a national party Jleader  left a lot to be desired. He was too naive  and too disorganized for that!  Give Bob Thompson top marks for sincerity however. For six frustrating years  he tried to make Social Credit a- national  movement. That he failed to do so is a  reflection of the fact that Social Credit  does not provide practical answers to the  practical problems of our times.  Canadians ���or "at least most of them ���  are a practical lot. Often they vote for' a  man rather than an idea. They don't follow  a political party through thick and thin.  And, to ask them to vote for a party which  claims to be "above politics" is asking  them to do the impossible.   , ���  Eailj in life Bob Thompson? decided to  be a missionary. He spent many years doing missionary, workKiJ^>Wi^tfcir^p3^^v,r^:_t^i;_a  return to Canada in the late 1950'. i��(i Ijok  up with Social Credit. He has been looking  for converts to that faith ever since.  Oddly enough it was John Diefehbaker  who gave Bob ThompsonJttis chance. Social  Credit, having been sw_ept out of Ottawa  as a result of the Diefenbaker landslide of  1958 was thought to be on its way back.  Premier Manning nominated Bob Thompson as leader. Premier W. A. C. Bennett  backed Real Caouette. Thompson got the  nod over Caouette at the Party's National  Convention in 1961.  An uneasy coalition followed ��� coalition  between Thompson the sad-eyed earnest  missionary from the Prairies and Caouette  the fiery French-speaking separatist from  Quebec. To make matters worse Thompson elected^ only four Socreds from the  West. Caouette marshalled twenty-six  M.P.'s from Quebec in 1962. Obviously  Thompson, as a leader who couldn't speak  French, and who was broadly internation-  "alist in^butldokr wasviiii trouble from the  start.  Though they frequently crossed each other, up in the House of Commons, Thompson  and Caouette fought the 1963 election side  Page 8 "-The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, April 5, 1967  by side. The results were none too encouraging. The Party's numbers dwindled,  mainly in Quebec, and. this was all' that  was needed to reveal the basic split. ���  The Creditiste split off with Real Caouette as their leader. And the general election of 1965 finished the job. Since then  Bob Thompson's ��� Socreds, as a party in  Parliament, have been fifth on the list.  Hidden behind the NDP and the Creditiste  it hardly looks' like a party at all.  Bob Thompson's recent resignation, is, in  some ways, typical both of the man and  of the party. He went off for'a month long  junket in the Far East. While he was far  off Saigon his caucus announced that Mr.  Thompson was  stepping down as leader.  Bob, Thompson has gone. Certainly he  has gone as leader of the Party in Ottawa.  Social Credit is down to a corporal's  guard. Perhaps it will disappear entirely.,  But Social Credit theory does not die easily. So B��h Thompson's passing may be  merely an incident in its endless struggle  for recognition on the- national scene.  i  ]  The TIMES  Phone 885-9654  Secheit, B.C.
