Access to Hall . '.  Regional District help  sought by Egmont group  Chamber project  DESPITE lack of volunteers, Secfcflft    last  Sunday.  The  sis^een-foot^ide   2>}(|y 01 DrOSBCUllOIl  ALTHOUGH a local resident has offered  to donate ten feet of his property to- :  ward an access road to the Egmont Community Hall, school trustees have refused  to co-operate by. donating ten feet of school  property, thereby forcing residents Jto. use  a private road in getting to the hall,  This situation was brought before the  regional district directors at the last meet-  ing, March 9. However, Chairman Norm  Watson explained that there appears to be  little the directors might do at this time.  "These people think we represent them  and to some extent we do," he said. He  said he had phoned the school board chairman who denied any knowledge of the offer of 10 feet by the local resident, and  stated that- space at the Egmont school is  so scarce that to consider giving away 10  feet is unthinkable.  Asked by Watson how he would feel if  he had given away a chunk of property  and on realizing, he had. been too generous  asked for a miserable 10 'feet back, only to  be refused^ ChairmanTJoe^Horvathrexplain-"'  ed he was only one on the school board.  Director John Dunlop said he was unaware of the letter being sent to the regional district but added that he was the resident prepared to donate the 10 foot strip  and that the school board was well aware  of his offer.  Directors agreed to acknowledge the  letter but advised the residents that there  is little they can do at this time.  PLANNING REPORT  Directbt: J&rne*-^  a meeting with a planner from the departv  ment of municipal affairs, stated main objectives suggested ��� were  a   major overall  plan of the area for land use and secondly:  land use of specific areas.  . It,.was also suggested that student planners from UBC be contacted and asked to  correlate and up-date existing maps of the  district, .. ,   ,', ������.'  V   Secretary-Treasurer, Charles Gooding,  had agreed to seek the services of a planning student, while on a visit to, UBC; this  it transpired was not as simple as had been  believed, Ho reported back that jobs during summer recess awaited tho ' students  and that it was impossible to obtajn one  ', under between $-150 and $500 per month.  ..���)y!.T,ne board agreed to pay $500 should a  student  be found  to accept  the position.  student for three to four months.  Asked if the planning grant was permanent or just for the first year, Mr. Chris  Woodward of the Department of Municipal.  Affairs, present at the meeting, said he  would assume it would continue. "Once a  grant is made it is usually continued," he  said.  BUILDING  BY-LAW  Discussing the building by-laws, included in the planning function of the board,  the chairman advised that it should be  well explained to the public in advance  "not only in the press but at meetings with  organizations and possibly even public  meetings," he said.  ��� ^Director John Dunlop; stating he represented what was probably the most rural  area in the district, agreed that great diplomacy would be required.  Director Cliff Gilker disagreed with a  pussyfooting attitude, pointing out that all  directors knew.of situations whereby,someone might build a good home, possibly in  the price range of $14,000 only to have the  next lot owner put up a tar paper shack.  "This Fmmediately devalues the whole  area which is not good enough. This is  what we are out to stop and it is up to us  to take the first step," he said.  , Advisability of obtaining expert advice  on the building cade was discussed and Mr.  Woodward suggested he send over a man  from Victoria who would be happy to outline pertinent details to the board.

MEETING with > the Sunshine Coast Regional District last week in Secheit,  Chris Woodward of the, department of  municipal affairs, advised against establishment of too many garbage dumps.  His   warning  followed   a   run-dowh  by  Chairman   Norm   Watson   who   explained  that   three   dumps   had   originally  'been  planned but a fourth was being considered  this type of dump to which Woodward objected. >  Watson agreed that an open . dump  posed problems in that' people quickly  fille,d the entranceway rather than deposit  their garbage in the.actual,dump. Director  Cliff Gilker said, he felt it better they dump  indiscriminately at the .dump than elsewhere. ., ,  : ���',,:..  Director Lorne Wolvcrton stressed  the  Chairman Wa^on advised the board that���   for Egmont. which   would  be  unserviced,    point that Gibsons had a dump which is  this was well within tho planning budget    simply provided for residents in order to  and that it would be necessary to hire the  eliminate   discriminate   dumping.  It"' was  kept locked, consequently he had certain  refuse the collector will not touch and it is  therefore creating an eyesore on his lot. ,,  . It was explained^hat a,dump has been  located at Pender Harbour! and application  is being made for it to the crown.       ..;,���  Secheit has a dump, which is almost  full and another Is badly needed. The  chairman, said he thought the council  would bo more pleased Jo get out of the  garbage business and tna't" the regional  board had a site in niind at East Porpoise  Bay.    ,,  Another location was available in the  Gibsons area- which could serve the outside areas. Director Fred Fcchey; how-"  even.i)salc| he could not speak for council  but it was |ils belief the present arrangement which has so far, proved economical,  Is considered satisfactory.       i  Director Wolvcrton commented that  people are already complaining that the  Gibsons dump is edging into Langdale  'Creek. i  <  wJ^JM<hng���Jlic^  nate dumping, It was suggested a fovf stiff  fines.,might help eliminate the problem.  Chairman Watson added that the police  wore reluctant to tnko action, possibly due  to difficulty of making! the, charge stick.  Also to be discussed are tbe resolutions  to be presented to the annual P-TA convention  which will  be held tins year in  , Vancouver at Easter. These include several  controversial topics: A driver deveJopineni  course for Grade X guidance to combat the  alarming accident rate, progressive,, lover-.  ing of beginning level of, French language  instruction with ultimate goal of starting  the two national languages si-aultaneously, ,.   ,. .    and a request to amend the Public Scbool A^S 3 fcnle ��aasg�� ra __* -ffifanailiar  Act to delete the requirements in regard to suixw_i_4--g$ of a start. raSao sap-bo; were  Bible Reading in schools'.

';���..'.    ��� ..���,.- .  t ���-by Mary Tinkley  MRS.    ELIZABETH    Wakefield,    who    is  affectionately known as. Granny Wakefield among her friends in Selma Park  and, Secheit, was born near Worcester,  Englaod, 86 years ago.  She married Edward Wakefield whom  she had known since they were children  together at school. He had emigrated to  Canada where he had, a ranch in Alberta,  and it was on a trip to his home in Worcestershire in 1910 that he married his old .  friend and neighbor. Together they re- ���  turned to Canada and settled in Calgary  where their son Stanley was  born.,  Living conditions at that time were  primitive amf when the baby became sick  the young parents found it impossible to  get for him the care or even the fresh  riiilk he needed, so they took him home  to England. A year later, with the baby  nursed back to health, they again set out  for Canada, but this time with the intention of going on to Australia. However, they  got no further than Canada, for by the time  tlu\v reached the west coast, war had broken out and there were no passenger boats  to Australia. Instead, they m#,ved T6 Port  Alberni, which at that time consisted of  noting but a  collection of shacks.  Mrs. Wakefield found the going hard  and must have often thought wistfully of  her comfortable home in England. Five  years later, they mp>e4 to ��� Surrey Centre where they. oporlfted a dairy farnrfor  25 years, marketing their milk in" Clover-  dale. ,  . On the death of her husband, Mrs.  Wakefield sold -the farm and worked for-,  seven years at Martin's restaurant in Port  Alberni. Eleven years ago, she moved to  Selma' Park to be near her son who was  logging in the Secheit area. He bought  for her the cosy home in which she has  since  lived.  In  the spring of  1960.  Secheit  mourned .  one of its bitterest tragedies. Stanley Wake-,  field    was    one   of   six    men    who   were  drowned when the boat in which they were  returning  from   work,   capsized in  Secheit  Inlet.  Mrs.  Wakefield  treasures  the  memory of her only son. for he was .^jkvays kind '  and thoughtful, but she is fortunaS in having the warm  friendship of���her daughter-  in-law.  Edna, now  Mrs. Jack  Fisher,  and  of her  grandson,   Douglas  Wakefield, who  is  serving  in  the  RCAF  in  Germany.  He  will be 21 years old in September,  Mrs. Wakeiield has been a staunch  Anglican all her life and has worked for  the church both in Surrey Centre and in  Secheit. She is a member of St. Hilda's  Church., and was active, in the WA as long  as she was able to get around. Her pastor.  Rev. R. Barry Jenks. visits her iaithfully,  so that she is not deprived of the comforts' of her church by age or infipmity.  She is cheerful and friendly: she likes  people and has many good friends who  visit her and perform deeds' of kindness  for her.

The first Humanities and Science Symposium, sponsored by the University and  the IBM Corporation of Canada, will give  29 leading students from senior grades  an opportunity to discuss their work in a  variety of fields, before an audience of  teachers and other students.  All those completing grade XI or 'XII  in B.C. schools were invited through their  principles to submit a paper on a subject  of their choice, or examples of their work  in the arts. The best of 100 papers submitted will be presented by their authors, who  and the implications of modern technology.  In the   creative   arts,   several   student  submitted their own poetry, paintings, and  music. One applicant, David Duke of Vancouver, included samples of all three arts  and will stage them simultaneously in what  he terms "an analysis and experiment- in  multi-media project form.''  .    Dr. Cary F. Goulson of the University's  faculty   of education,   who  is   symposium  chairman,  said  that the  panel of judges  was    "tremendously    impressed    by ��� the  scope of the entries, and by their number."  "We hope the symposium will become  an annual event," Dr. Goulson said. "The  quality of the response this year promises  some exciting sessions  at the end of the  month,   and  shows  that  the   project  has  caught students' imagination."  As well as  discussing their own  material, those attending the symposium will  receive expenses for their visit to-'.the" Un-    hear three special lectures and see some  HAND carving leather is becoming  a lost art but Mr. Steve Vesely,  of Wilson Creek who learned the art  in a Texas leather shop, has a superb . collection of articles made for  the family.

School representation will  also include 26 teachers who sponsored  the project among their own pupils.  Students will come from 26 centres,  some as far afield as Kimberley and  Dawson Creek. The papers to be given cover almost the entire range of subjects  taught at the university level. One paper  is entitled "The Death ol God". Others  deal with bilingualism, the school system,  thing of University life. Sessions were arranged for the Easter vacation to permit out-of-town students to attend.  Speakers include Dr. J.. Tuzo Wilson  of the University pf Toronto physics department, who will give the keynote address March 31 at 9 p.m. Dr. Wilson is an  internationally known geophysicist and  commentator on current affairs. Others  who will speak are Dr. S. W. Jackman of  the University's department of history and  Professor C. A. Emery of the School of  Fine Arts, who was recently appointed  director of the Vancouver Art Gallery.  FISH, either canned or boiled and drained, can be the cook's best friend.  Fish dishes are ,-fast to prepare, inexpensive to serve and so good for people.  All fish are an excellent source of complete, high-quality protein necessary for  growth and repair of body tissues and for  life itself. Fish protein is just as complete  and disgestible as beef and, in fact, pound  for pound, contains more protein than  beef.  Thus it behooves us all to think kindly  of fish. This recipe for Friendly Fish Loaf  is an unusualr way to serve either canned  fish such as tuna or boiled and drained  white fish: We think you will like it.  Flake two cups of either canned fish or  boiled   and   drained   white   fish.   Combine  fish with one cup medium white sauce,  two tablespoons lemon juice, two tablespoons chopped cucumber pickle and two  tablespoons chopped pimento.  In a separate bowl, combine two- cups  fine bread crumbs and four eggs, well  beaten.  Grease an S^ inch by 4V_ inch loaf  pan. Make layers of half the fish mixture,  a thin layer of half of one three ounce tin  of lobster paste and half the bread crumb  mixture. Smooth each layer with a spatula and repeat layering with the remaining  half of the mixtures.  Bake in a preheated moderate oven (350  deg. F.) for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in  pan for five minutes. Then turn out on a  wire rack. Slice and serve, either hot or  cold, with chili sauce.  Upset traders . . .

WILLIAM Duncan rejected his church and  his country to serve British Columbia  Indians, proving that with fair treatment  and leadership they could create a civilization to'rival that of the white man.  Duncan was born in 1832 in Yorkshire,  England. He was trained as a "clerk and  a salesman and was highly successful.  Very devout, he joined the Church Missionary Society in London and when a call  came for religious men to serve the Church  of England among British. Columbia Indians, he stepped forward.  He arrived'at Victoria in 1857 and soon  decided he could better help the Indian  away from the influence of the fur trading  community. So he travelled north- to Fort  Simpson to live among the Tsimshians '  where he soon earned respect, despite  ..early ..opposition from the tribal, medicine  men.  He spent almost five years there and  established a school,, In 1862 he resolved  to build a,,Christian community of Indians  apart from the trading post at a place  called Matlakatla, 20 miles distant.  About 350 of the band accompanied him.  Tliey laid out town lots,, built.... houses and  a church, n town ha,ll, a smithy, a cooperage, a sawmill! a soap factory, a co-operative store,, a bank and a cannery, Thoy  ���owned their own schooner and traded with  Victoria.  Enmities built up with while traders  who were stopped by native policemen  from usintf liquor In their trade with tho  Indians, Tho Church Missionary Society  prole-Mod Duncan's teaching methods,  which lacked rltmtf.  These frictions led to near conflict and  provincial   authorities   wove   cool   toward  Duncan because thesp troubles cost money  ,lri sending gunboats to preserve the peace, ���  Duncan averted .trouble., by moving, his  whole eomtviunUy Into Alaska territory, and  building u new Metlakatln In 1887 on Annette Island, with oven more Industries and  better homes, It was here that Duncan  died In 1018 at. the ��ro of 8fl, his only re  Hrlllsh Columbia to create his  Promised  Land.  p  ST WAS A HORRIBLE MISTAKE  m  BUT ...

Needless to say. numerous reasons  .....can,be drummed up as to why money  taken from the local taxpayer has to be  utilized to bolster the economy of the  lower mainland, validity of these excuses  however, are somewhat que*  It    would   appear   arrangements   of  the  t questionable.  arrangements  - purchase were put in the hands of  Board   Maintenance   Supervisor  who.  it  appears, told the local dealer he shopped  around extensively first.  He-also stated  he had called on the local dealer but did  not reveal himself as a representative of  the  School Board. This it seems is not  done but rather under a cloak of secrecy.  What  rubbish!  on  many items,  the  School  Board gets  a discount  and. the  dealer  tells  us  this applies  to vehicles.  Why then the cloak and dagger stuff when  a discount is available?  The simple fact is that no-one on  behalf of the board took the trouble to  sit down with the local dealer to discuss  reguirements and obtain a written quote.  In fact the first indication he received,  was on reading the boards intentions in  The Times, by which time it was too late.  This is not good enough, we have too  many eager beavers paid substantial  salaries by the taxpayer who almost fall  over themselves in their hurry to spend  even more of the, taxpayers money With  outside interests. ������*"  To give the School Board credit, a  great deal of business is done locally, at  the same time,  when great lengths are  .gone to in order to persuade the-taxpayers  to vote  in  Referenda,   in  other words  cough up more of your hard earned capital. If at all possible there should be no  question of .spending it out of the area.  ' This situation is not restricted to the  School Board for there are other organizations which depend upon public funds  vet have a fondness for spending it outside.  We refer to one group which raffled  off a colour T.V. Tickets were pushed ���  particularly hard in the High School  where by means of instigation of the  competitive spirit, a large number of  tickets were sold.  This is fine to a degree, considering it  was for a worthy cause. The sad fact is  that it was decided to purchase the Television off the Peninsula. The age old  story is that someone, knew someone who  would do a good d&al.  ��� There are merchants on the Peninsula  who would probably offer similar terms  if asked. One thing is certain, any question of donations and the merchant is the  first target, too bad this is so quickly forgotten when it comes to giving a little  business.  It is indeed a fact that most organizations have the member who "knows someone". It is also a fact that we have many  merchants who in the event- of a good  cause will supply a product at near, if not  co_t. That a stranger from afar is prepared to play fairy god-father to a strange  community, out of kindness of heart, is  very doubtful. There are those who see  the world through clouded pink spectacles  but unfortunately it is not that way. It is  cold hard fact governed by cold hard  cash.  When public groups depending on  public funds have money to spend, it  should be remembered, this is not a prosperous area, every penny spent helps and  out of common decency should be ���spent-  right here at home when possible.

Unfortunately, under this system, the  scales of justice are becoming increasingly weighted in favour of the criminal. In  general principle the law is fair and just  but there are many occasions when one  has good reason to question the way in  which it is administered.  This' cavalier attitude presently making suqh a mockery of law and order js  by no,means confined to this, country, indeed not; the same sorry situation blights  that staid pf old seat of justice, the United  Kingdom. ,  Of course,, despite , qny,illusions to  the contrary, dispensation of British justice has, for centuries, depended to great  extent on the colour of one's blood. There  have been numerous examples of questionable justice.  Latest incredible dismissal in that  country involved a nineteen year old  youth who drove a very high powered  motorcycle'into an auto, PJea put up by  his lawyer was "sleep-walking",  Yes indeed, not only had the unfortunate youth shown frequent symptoms of  sleep-walking but, had been known to get  up in his sleep and take the family dog  for a walk. As his lawyer pointed out "he  ., could not have been guilty of any offence  if in a state of unconsciousness."  What a turn-up for the book and what  a break for future law breakers?'The po,  tential is fantastic and docs not necessarily  mean that it has to be night time to claim  sleep-walking when baughi committing a .  felony, The same golden opportunity is  available lo those on graveyard and If so  ,inclined may well pull a job in broad day-  eriMie  light. If caught they simply hold their  arms out in front 6f them and providing they land a gullible magistrate they  have it made.  We do not actually suggest future  wrong-doers take this seriously for it is  extremely doubtful ��� if two magistrates  could possibly fall for such a story. It  does, however, emphasize the sloppy  present day attitude to law breakers and  the ease by whichVso many magistrates are  manipulated by sharp lawyers.  Much more of this nonsense and it  will be necessary to form a vigilante com-  $ mittee to protect, the police. They sure as  heck aren't getting too much protection  insbmc of our so-called courts of law.

FRED Kirkharii who was born in  (Market Drayton, Shropshire. England,  corning to Canada with his family as a  young boy of 14 years, celebrated his  93rd birthday on- March 6.  Formerly of Kirkhams Groceterias.  Vancouver, Mr. Kirk-ham came lo live at  Gibsons 15 years ago. His wife Florence  for many years telephone operator here.  is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs.  Smith who were residents of Gibsons from  1917.  Open House was held on Monday at  the Kirkham home on Reid Rd. and many  friends called to. offer congratulations.  Mr. Kirkham w as th e - r e c i pi en t of numerous cards, gifts and\ flowers and a poem  was   especially   written   for   him.  As he is an ardent bridge player, it  was a happy climax to an enjoyable day  when a surprise bridge party was arranged  for the evening.  Sunday visitors at the home of Mr. and  Mrs. Kirkham were Mr. and Mrs. Angus  Campbell and Dr. and Mrs. Crowbridge of  Vancouver.  The   poem   written   for   Mr.   Kirkham"  reads:  I wonder if you realize  How much you guided me,  From  the reckless days" of childhood,  When I was too blind to seo.  Rememer the day when Maldwin and I  Came slinking over the fence?  You caught us by the garden, wall  And  asked for  our sly pretence. '  We hung our heads most shamefully,  For dnce, quite lost for words.  "You came to steal my apples,  ���   The silliest thing I've heard.  Now come to the house to get a bag  I'll help with the filling  task.  To apples you're ever welcome.  But always come and ask.

IF THE word epidemic is taken to mean  "a Wide-spread disorder seriously affecting the lives and well-being of many thou- .  sands of people," it is correctly applied to  the increasing number of traffic injuries  and fatalities, the Canadian Medical Asso- "  ciation says.  In five years non-fatal traffic casualties,  have increased 56 per cent and 'fatal  casualties 35 per cent. If these figures were  related to diptheria or smallpox, the situa*  tion would be considered a national emergency.   ��� ' ~  There are many causes of traffic accidents: careless driving, often combined  with alcoholic impairment; disregard of the  rules of the road; failure to maintain one's  car in proper operating condition; failure  to make use of approved safety devices  such as safety belts and head rests, and  many others.  The CMA asserts that if every driver  could be persuaded to criticize iris own  driving performance under these, categories and then take the necessary corrective  action, a reduction in the number of serious  traffic accidents almost certainly would result.  Indifference, immaturity and lack of a  sense of personal responsibility, are invariably .demonstrated by those individuals  ��� who drink to the point.of impairment, then  take to the highways incapable of any  thought for the safety of others or of themselves.  It is important that all drivers recognize  the rights of others'on the roads and highways, and do all in their power to prevent  accidents. Otherwise, the injury and death  rate will continue to mount and more  government . control- will be required.  Mounting public protest ha< brought revision of inadequate laws in the past, and  it will do so again.  The "CMA. points out that precision  engineering in your car can never "ompen-  sate for defective judgment in your driving.

In order to counteract the buyer's  apparent oppositibn to their product,* the  money-hungry manufacturers of the baby-  boy doll state that It is in no way intended  to arouse, anxiety and that it should not  shock anyone. They further state that it  is a healthy ;,approach to a controversial  subject and intimate that the baby-boy doll  will actually be of educational value in 'a  biological way.    '  The so-called "free thinkers" and  "hippys," a small but vociferous minority  of today'js younger generation, have already introduced enough weird innovations  into our daily living to-last a lifetime. Let  us not further complicate matters for the  already   bewildered  parents.  My old friend, "Haggis McPyke," a  character who has been around for a long  time and is far from being a prude, summed it up nicely when informed of this  latest promotional scheme.  .  "Mebbie it's no for the wee wains that  they're makin* the dolls. Mebbie it's the'  bigger folk that'll use them. The ones that  hang oot aroun' RObson an' Granville wi'-  their riurrty bare feet.

EGMONT   EYEDROPS  Hear that Tom Peddle has been chosen  as Powell River's 1986 "Citizen of the  year," and will be presented with the  award at a public ceremony on March 16.  This presents a golden opportunity for this  column to make use of the oft-repeated  phrase 'local boy makes good', as Tom,  his good wife Rose and sons Phillip and  Jock were well-known residents of Egmont  prior to moving up to Powell River about  11 years ago. Tom's record of community-  minded effort and his keen interest in the  younger generation was in evidence long  before he moved north, and it is extremely  gratifying to hear that recognition of these  outstanding qualities of a good citizen has  come to Tom Peddie; who well deserves  the honor.  Mrs. Olive Porte, well-known and longtime resident of Secheit,. is spending a few  days in Egmont's balmy atmosphere as the  guest of her very good friend, Mrs. Myrtle  Dalton. Olive would probably .never admit  it; biit (!<��� suspect that' her annual pilgrimage to jpthese *e"r parts" is to recuperate  from th��j rigors ("���) of her home-town winters.

However, it has now been  found that in pine plantations affected by  the pine shoot moth the wild carrot will  prevent the spreading of the moth when  the pine forest is in its young, vulnerable  stage  Since the wild carrot plant depends on  large open areas, the pine tree eventually  crowds it out and destroys it. However, by  this time, the pine is able to successfully  combat the dangerous moth.  Scientists are now faced with the fact  that we will possioly have to change the  law to allow the wild carrot plant to grow  freely in the pine plantation areas. The  only problem will be to stop it from spreading beyond the plantation  Weclnes-fay, March IS, 1967 tiie Peninsula Time-  Page 3  tiff"  it  ^**VK  wrtna in\  Choose from our colorful selection  DRESSES -SUITS - COATS - SKIRTS  BLOUSES - KNITWEAR - SUMS and TOPS  H.

CANADIANS   deeply   mound .the   passing  of one' of our great countrymen, Gov-  ernor General George P. Vanier who passed away Sunday, March 5th.  He was born in 1889 of an Irish mother  and a French-Canadian father. A descend-  ent of one of Canada's first French settlers, he had an immense pride in his an-  cesfry~that was surpassed only by his fer-  veht love for Canada and his hopes for  the unification of the provinces.  Discord between the English and French  speaking Cnaadians distressed him deeply. In his New Year's address, ushering  in the Centennial Year, he expressed his  love for every one of the ten provinces and  his pride in all their citizens. He earnestly  wished that the borders of- the provinces  would cease to be barriers and that Canadians could surmount these walls and join  together as people of a country and not  just as inhabitants of a particular province.  Mr. Vanier served his country devotedly and well as diplomat and soldier for 50  of his 78 years. He.- in the words of John  G. Diefenbaker, embodied and epitomized  the best, of Canadian citizenship. His passing leaves a great sorrow in all Canadians.  My introduction to live Shakespearean  acting came when the excellent troupe.  The Holiday Theatre, performed at our  school on Thursday, March 2nd. This marvelous group comprised of Leo Burdak,  Loyola Bunz, Brian Richman, Janet Wright,  Jim McQueen, Bob Sime and Wally Mc-  Sween put on "Shakespeare 67" which was  composed of important excerpts of some"of  Shakespeare's more noteworthy plays.  In the opening scene narrator Jim McQueen described early Canadian theatre,  or. as the Indians aptly named it, the_"Hee  Hee House".  In -this scene, Leo Burdak, an outstanding performer, portrayed an extremely animated town crier. This vital actor also  gave excellent performances as the grave  digger in Hamlet, Sir Andrew Aquecheek,  in Twelfth Night and the physician in  "Physician in Spite of Himself." The last  named was the final scene, an excerpt from  the play by the celebrated French playwright Moliere.  Other highlights were Wally McSwcen'vS  portrayals of Sir James Douglas in the  opening scene and Sir Toby Belch in twelfth Night; Loyola Bunz as Rosalind in "As  You Li.ke It" and the physician's wife in  "'"Physician",' ''''"'''"' ���''���'''' "'���'''" '���''���' "���  Wonderful performances were also given by Jim McQueen, Janet Wright, Brian  Richman and Bob Sime. They were all terrific entertainers and entirely deserved the  prolonged ovation at the end of their per-  .'���..,. ���by Donna Vaughn  formancfe.    .  Judging from the comments it would  appear, that the. rest .of the school enjoyed  the show as much as I did. _ome of the  comments were: "They were good actors.  I enjoyed it live much more than I would  have if I'd read the plays from a book".  " Ithought they were neat. I liked Leo Burdak". "Definitely, absolutely better than  the books". "You get a lot more out of it  seeing it live". "Much more interesting  than the book. I liked Leo Burdak best of_  all." "Really good".  This week we are bringing Mr. Friesan  into the limelight. Mr. Friesan teaches  Math and French at our school. He was  born, in Drake, Saskatchewan, and attended a country school for his primary grades.

It started as a short  item in this column a few months ago and  grew and grew and grew, until last week,  when the posters were finished, the crest  arrived."and the membership cards were  printed.  The posters 'carry the details of how  anyone can become a member absolutely  free but for anyone who has not as yet  seen them I thought I would run over the  hows, whys and wherefores of the club:  To begin with, it is not a club in the  true sense of the word. There are no meetings, dues, etc. and membership is not  restricted to age or sex. On the other  hand it is a very exclusive "club". The  one and only way a person can-become a  member is to catch a salmon 25 lbs--Qr  better, anywhere on the Sunshine Coast  and weigh it in at one of the locations listed on the posters.  The Sunshine Coasti' for the purpose of  this "club", Js ,roughly from Port Mellon  up through Malaspina Stfait to Jervis Inlet including Princess Royal Reach, down  past   Egmont and   through- the Skookumchuck and  into Porpoise?, Bay  and  as the  surveyors say, "all the water in between".  I   believe   it   goes   without   saying   that  the   membership  is only  open to   anglers  taking their, fish on sport tackle so if any  of you potential members have a  gill-net  in your hip pocket better trade it in for a  rod and reel.  If you are one of the more fortunate.  or  should   I   say  "skillfull"   anglers;   who  lands a "big one" and weighs it in at one  of the listed locations you will receive  a  membership  card   and  a  club   crest.   The  cards reads that you, having proved to be  ' a fisherman of outstanding "ability by catching a'chinook salmon fii excess of 25 lbs.  are awarded membership in the  Chinook .  Salmon Club". From then' on if any person  doubts   your   prowness   as- an   angler  all  you  will  have to  dp  is  produce your  card and stand back and watch your tormentor .eat crow.  There   will   be   prizes   awarded   at  the  ��� end. of this'year to the three heaviest fish  and the top fish will take the  'Fins  and  Tails' trophy which shall be his to keep;  (th angler not the fish);  .. So there it is, simple and straight, fpr-  ward. ISo entrance fee, no special dates,  (it is in effect now until Dec. 31, 1067), nothing to{ buy. and'��� almost,."no' >��� boundaries.  Now all you have to do is find a big "lun-  ker", hook him, play him, land him  and  . wejgh him in! at one of Ihe many official '  '.locations, It sounds/yso, .simple that, even I  ���,J  might' h&ve a charte'e nt "becoming a mem-'  ber, and  be  able to sew a,crest on my  ,,sweater._ I don't think, I wjjll  count ;on it ,  though', more than likely the bi�����c,st fish  I will  take  all year  will weigh  24 ' lbs., ���  A couple of fish caino Into Haddock's  Cabana 'Marirta up at Madeira'Park over  the weekend that'jeame pretty darn close  to getting their captors into the club.

LADIES Auxiliary to Royal Canadian Legion, Elphinstone Peninsula Zone, comprised of Vananda, Powell River, Madeira  Park, Secheit, .Roberts Creek a,nd Gibsons  held a very busy year in 1966.' Members  total 211, including 13* life members and  26 new members admitted during the year.  Total receipts for, the six LAs amounted  tQ,',$8,827.88, with .expenditures totalling  ��7,892.74. Zone project was the donation  'of a television set to parents at Shaugh-  nsssy Hd_pital.  To^al help given the branches amounted  ���to $2,285,81 in the form of furnishings,  flags, catering, patients in hospital, past-  presidents' plaque, kitchen .supplies and  many other items.  Money sent for comforts for patients at  'fehaughnessy totalled $333.50 and aid given  Powell River and Secheit hospitals, $291.77.  Other donations to hospitals amounted to  < $48.25. Welfare work is always a first concern for veterans and dependents and was  not as high this year, total being $447.35.  Scholarships  are very  important  to  all  'the ladies auxiliaries both locally and from  command  and totalled $406.65.  Aid given other organizations came to  $644.00    including    Canadian    Red    Cross,  Muscular Dystrophy; Senior Citizens, Boy  Scouts, Science Fair., Kiwanis, Heart Fund,  Girl Guides, C'NIB, Central City Mission,  Centennial Projects, Salvation Army, Cancer Fund, Mental Health, Save.the Children Fund and the Loyal Protestant Home.  Assistance given community projects  included not monies but many hours of  donated time; centennial projects, residential School Band, clothes for needy  blood donor clinics, tag day for Multiple  Sclerosis, Baseball Rotary Club, Fall Fair  and many others. ,       y^  Money is hard to raise with so- many  other groups and a-ctivities but through  long hours of work, many banquets have  been prepared,, teas held, rummage sales,  bazaars and raffles which go tp make all  the donations and help to others possible.  The total results are?very gratifying.  New members are always welcome and  an increase in membership is needed to  carry on the work that is being done.

Burdetts went on the rampage from the  opening whistle and were a goal up after  10 minutes. Pegasus looked as if they had  never been on a soccer field before. The  defence were shaky, the forwards lacked  sting and were not aggressive. Pegasus  somehow survived several attacks and  were under constant pressure. Gordon Dick  gave the team some of their confidence  back when he streaked down the middle,  drew out the goalie, slipped by him and  scored. Half time 1-1.  A much different team came but ��� to  play the second half, they were the same  boy's but with a different attitude. Gordon  hit home number"2 and a few minutes later Roland August made it 3-1. Tommy^Blain  took a ball in his own penalty area and  passed back to his goalie, but it was a bad  pass and went wide of the mark. -Dave  recovered to boot the ball away before it  crossed the line but the referee, who was  almost at the half way line gave Burdetts  a go_l. This was a bad break and things  got blacker a few minutes later when Burdetts were awarded a penalty kick. From  the side line it looked like the Burdett  player was the offender and the spectators  were surprised when the referee pointed  to the spot. Dave Fossett rose to the occa- "  sion and tipped the shot over the bar. ��� ��� ��� ��  Pegasus   had  no   trouble', holding   them  after   this   and  the   final   whistle   blew   to.'  end the game. Pegasus will now enter the  district final against the Eagles at Ambleside Park, kick-off 11 a^.m.

Playing against these older  boys. Pegs put on a good display of soccer,  and both teams were very evenly matched  as regards ability. At the half way mark  the score was  even, 0-0. ,.  In the second half, the Pegs started to  tire, but held their ground "until twenty  minutes from time, when Buchans scored.  Lorne Edmunds tied it up for the Pegs  with eight minutes to go, but Buchans popped in the winner with just the injury time  left on the clock.  This game was played in the true spirit  of sportmanship, and quite different, from  the rough and tumble of league and cup  play. The Buchans parents and players put  out the red carpet for the visitors, who  were shown a good time, with everything  laid on from roller skating, to bowling,  .and the Pegs are looking forward to many  more meetings with teams from this area.  .RECOMMENDED  !&8V,- OFFICIAL,v  .APPOINTMENT;  10 SLEEPING AND HOUSEKEEPING UNITS  ELECTRIC HEAT and  COOKING  VANITY BATHS & SHOWERS - TV - COMPLIMENTARY  COFFEE  (JmSiue S^k  ON BEACH AT BEAUTIFUL DAVIS BAY  HIGHWAY 101 - 2 MILES S.

Isabel Dawson  THIS week a few facts and figures of in-"  terest-from-the-provincial" secretary's  department and the department of health.  Throughout British Columbia, there are  nearly 400 local centennial committees.  The Confederation Caravan will make 100  exhibit stops throughout British Columbia  while spending 200 days and travelling  5,619 miles in the province. In 1966, the provincial centennial committee arranged  events which visited 200 communities for a  total of 400 appearances.  One hundred and thirty-seven chief executives this year will use the centennial  travelling gavel. The S.S. Beaver will be  visiting many ports in British Columbia  and also to the States of Washington and  Oregon. Other highlights are the Centennial International Abbotsford Air Show in  August, the greatly expanded B.C. International Trade Fair at Vancouver in May,  the opening of the historic Fort Steele, the"  1967 Festival of Logging, the Youth Travel  exchange of students visits, the student's  100 project, participation of armed forces,  pacific command ships will also visit remote and isolated areas, an international  fleet assembly at Vancouver and Victoria,  and impressive military tattoos, and over  300 dedication ceremonies of commemorative centennial'projects .to ^ tune of $8,500,-  000 from all levels of government.  Civil defence, covering 104 municipalities in British Columbia, has proved its  value to the community during 1966 and in  our area I might mention the Powell River  Area Civil Defence assistance to the R.C.-  M.P. in the search for two lost boys last  year. -^~.  Under health, the Medical Grant Act  (B.C. Medical Plan) has been expanded to  include payment of services of oral sur  geons and to include payment for*...Abe services of podiatrists. The advisory committee is actively studying the field of optical  care, particularly as it pertains to tests of  eyesight to determine the need for optical  glasses. As of February 10th, 1967, 371,935  persons or approximately 20'; of total popr  ulation are presently covered. under the  B.C. Medical Plan on individual voluntary  basis. Over 65'/, of the subscribers to the  plan receive assistance in the payment of  the basic premium.  The mid-year population of B.C. was  1,862.000 people, an increase of 73,000 persons over that of 1965. There were about  1,000 fewer births than in 1965, and they  exceed deaths by about 13.000. This, means  that some 5-4,600 people were immigrants,  mostly from other provinces.  Public health staffs administered some  386.000 individual treatments, given to protect against communicable diseases, of  which 166.000 were Sabin Oral vacines  against polio. The home care programme  services is now provided in 102 communities, from 56 health centres and includes  approximately*8-l", of the population within the provincial unit area.

The rem-irider" included  Workmen's Cdriipebsation, armed, forces  personnel or visitors to the province.  A further change was' the extension of  coverage to include out-patient cancer therapyin the facilities operated by the B.C.  ^Cancer Institute in Vancouver and the  Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria. In November acute care hospitals  were- advised  . that arrangements has been completed for  the free P.K.U. testing of all-neWborn infants suffering from Phenylketonuria would  be provided with Lophenolac through the  anti-patient care at Woodlands School.   .  'At the end of the year, 1,000 new beds  were under construction, representing a  cost of $25,000,000 and major projects in  advanced stages of planning represented  a futher investment of $57,000,000. There  are approximately 1,000 extended care  beds (including the Powell River one) in  advanced stages of planning.  "The-value of mentaf health clinics" is  very evident and expansion of these is pro:  gressing as rapidly as staff can be recruited. I believe that decentralization of the  mental health program is an excellent one  and also I believe will gain the support of  most people,  :.:v   There are many other points of the  plans for the mental health and for Woodlands, etc, that are most interesting and  worthwhile, but like other subjects would  take too long to explain in .a weekly column.

As they  say, "We 6hly live for the holidays". Exams are after th<$ holidays this year, because Easter is early. I wonder hbw many  of us will spend our ten days pouting over  our books.  Let's sel now, what happened worth  repeating this week. Plans arid arrangements for our Mardi. Gras are. well underway. Although the date isn't set definitely  yet, each division has plans for their booth.  Let's hope' we get as good a response to  this as we did. in selling the pool tickets.  Wednesday afternoon an assembly was  held in memory of Governor-General Vanier. Although it was only fifteen minutes,  after leaving the assembly you realized  just how great this man must have been,  and if he was proud to be called a Canadian, you were proud to be able to say  you're a Canadian.  During the assembly, a brief biography  of bis life was given. It sure made you  realize how much he devoted his life to the  Canadian people. Wouldn't it be great if we  were all as patriotic as he was?  marks   Human Rights Year"  MONTHLY dinner meeting of the SCB &  - PW Clubr was held March 7 at the  Winning Post at -Ole'-s Cove Resort, with  11 members present.  Following the dinner, usual business  "reports were presented by the, committee  chairman. In the monthly newsletter from  the provincial president, members learned  -that 1968 was to be marked as "Human  Rights Year," and that yet another'hew  club had been formed at Quesnel. The  secretary was asked to send a letter of  congratulations and expressing the club's  good wishes to the president of the new  club.  ��� Annual regional meeting of the lower  mainland clubs took place in Vancouver  on Sunday, March 12 and Mrs. L. Dunlop  and Mrs. J. Benjafield were nominated as  delegates and two other members also  attended.

There were a few spot dances, freeze  dances, elimination dances ,and bingo dances.
