Subject of' her complaints  were two old bunk houses which have  caused a problem for some years. Council  still seeks ways and means'to remove the  eyesore.  Mrs. Hammond also drew attention to a  contractor's yard nearby which, she suggested, creates something oif an eyesore.  Commissioner Ken Crosby expressed (the  view there must surely be something council can do about the situation. Chairman  Fred Feeney said the buildings might be  considered a fire hazard and action should  be taken accordingly. As for the contractor's lot, situated where it is before  the bylaw came into effect, it was agreed  Coanmissioner Wally Peterson should investigate the situation.  VILLAGE EYESORE.  A similar complaint came from N. E.  Harris who drew attention to the bad state  of a lot right in -the village centre at School  Road' and the Highway, Council agreed  some action should be taken, and moved  that a letter ibe written the owners seeking  their co-operation in view of council's plans  for a clean-up in the village.  Mrs. J. Lee wrote council pointing out  that while taxes continue to rise each year,  nothing has been done to improve a lane  at her property on Marine Drive, and that  it is now in a deplorable condition. Action  is also sought on tar-paper exterior homes  being permitted. It is felt they are a  detriment to good homes in the vicinity.  Chairman Feeney explained that a bylaw exists which enforces completion of  new homes by a certain period once building commences. It -was pointed out the  house obviously (referred to has been in  rundown condition for about ten years.  Commissioner Peterson commented some  people permit this in order to save taxes.  AIRPORT  Commissioner Ken Crosby, reporting on  a recent meeting of the Municipal Airport  Committee, said he discovered the committee operates on a small budget which  permits little improvements at the airport  He suggested council consider submission  of an annual budget by the committee  which might penmitjmore improvements.

Council agreed to go  along -with ithe suggestion.  BEAUTIFUL B.C.  It was agreed ito proceed with a proposal toy- Commissioner Crosby that a letter  be sent to the appropriate source seeking  coverage of the Gibsons area in the provincial magazine "Beautiful B.C."  S. B. Chairman  gives reply  FOLLOWING statements by Commissioner  Wally Peterson at the last meeting of  the Gibsons council regarding the 1988  school budget and the reluctance of bom  village councils to accept the budget so  far, Don Douglas, School Board Chairman  issued (the following statement! Monday at  the trustees meeting.  "It is difficult to comprehend the sheer  ignorance behind the vicious attack against  a hard working Board of School Trustees  and especially the employee of the board,  Mr. Peter Wilson. In the first place, the  commissioner who was responsible for the  attack was not present at the meeting between councils and the board when ithe  budget was discussed, and for him to sujj-  is�� eassiffiiisss  ' ���*��  Non-sharing...  VERY much in th news these days, the  School Trustees hav recently been in  the firing line regarding continued substantial increases in school budgets. A sews  S^J^ftJSe i *1?^3.~T::* release by .the Board tins week" explains  Wilson only indicates that the commissioner  is woefully uninformed about the method  of budgeting.  "The budget is the product of, the de-  "inands of education in the district as the  board and its professional advisors see it.  It is especially shocking to find such an  uninformed citizen serving on a responsible  -council. The commissioner is seeking  headlines.  He accuses .the Board of School Trustees  of being guilty of 'extravagances, mismanagement and of committing crimes'.  If this is the opinion of the councils both of  Sechelt and Gibsons, and it obyiously is as  they have withheld officially approving the  budget on the strength of these statements,  we < the Board-of School Trustees suggest  that both village councils demand arbitration under Section 197 subsection 2(b) of  ihe Public Schools Act.  ���"Fur-ttieismore this School Board ha�� no  m'vu'ion of asking for the rebynj-Uon of  thL.r Mcre'-ary-lreasurcr since he ha*> served tne bjard well on every occasion "  LangdaEe terminal  Dredging and pile-driving is bow  underway at Langdale temsmal to  provide a second dockrog slip, Hals  one is reported to be for tfee new  Sunshine Coast Queen- Tmseks axe  using 1he old. dock, ojb. left, to transport fill from barges to file parMng  area. Rumored curtailment, of tbe  ferry service doling tbe ammmer  months hardly seems feasible after  such an extensive egpamsioaa.  what is meant by over-entitlement and is  it necessary;  Teacher entitlement refers to the formula on which government shares in teachers' salaries. The fact that we are some  20 teachers above entitlement does not  mean that the government does not ap-'  prove the appointment of these teachers���  it means that government will not share  the salary bill of those teachers over entitlement. To put it -simply, present government policy is to share in the elementary  schools'of over 3 classrooms on the basis  of l teacher for every 36 pupils on the average. If we stuck rigidly to the government's formula, we would have quite a few  classes of over 40 pupils per teacher. We  believe that this would be undesirable: H  there is any place to cut expense this. Is  not the place. Our elementary classes at  Dreseut /not counting our 3 very small one-  room .schools) average 30 pupil* per teacher This is the main reason for being  over-entitlement   The fjet that we nave  Substantially built.  30 pupils per teacher (and not 36 or 40)  gives us a better teaching situation and is  a j very large factor in attracting teachers  to our area. The day is gone forever when  a teacher can successfully teach 40 or 50  pupils in -one classroom.  - -We know of no district in the province  which operates strictly within entitlement.  We think tins is one area where it is wise  to spend more money. Many Boards, educators, and teacher associations are suggesting that primary classes be limited to  25 pupils per teacher.  Our secondary schools are also over-en-  tiUement. There are 2 further reasons for  this. Ai Pender Harbour, the enrolment is  very small for a high school. We deliberately auow this school to be 2 teachers  over entitlement so that we can offer there  a variety of courses and programs suited  to the needs of different kinds of pupil interests and abilities. If we stayed rigidly  within entitlement, we would have a very  narrow "-and confined program and there  would be many more drop-outs. Even hav-  ing 2 teachers over entitlement puts resections on. our offerings because the total  humber%f pupils is--small. ' I  -;       At Elphinstone we are pelrfcaps, at the  moment, too many teachers | over entitte-  , J!P{dk>^i��-i%A.4iff��^^  -, r -   ���  ^ ohre..

This situation  will improve and correct itself as our senior secondary studect population grows in  number. t  RUMORS of a deteriorating ferry-system   between Horseshoe", Bay and Langdale  still cause concern on the Sunshine Coast  and despite conflicting reports, both MLA  Isabel Dawson and B.C. Ferries' general  manager Monty Aldous claim the service  win be quite adequate.  Following representations by Council of  Gibsons, two letters were received and  read by clerk Dave Johnston at last  regular meeting. The first from Mrs.  Dawson stated: "As you are no doubt  aware by now, the B.C. Ferries "will  shortly be under the department of highways, and I feel 'this will prove beneficial  for the people of the area. It is my sincere  belief that some of these trying matters  that have plagued us will be ironed out to  the satisfaction of all.  "I have approached the minister of  highways on the schedule and should be  hearing from him on this very shortly."  From Mr. Aldous came the assurance  that the new ierry will be supplemented  when necessary. He stated: "I am sure  that if you travel on the ferries you will  realize that during off season,'loadings are  very light, and .the two hour service is  more than adequately carrying all traffic  "We are, as you know, making i very  great improvements at both Horseshoe Bay  and Langdale in order to handle traffic  ' more efficiently. The new vessel with its  much greater carrying capacity will, I am  sure, have She ability to take care of all  traffic. It will be supplemented on a  planned basis with additional service."

Seciielf joins Gibsons  protests school budget  ANTAGONISM displayed at last weeks"  meeting of Gibsons Village Council towards the soaring costs of txJiucatloni was  repeated again next day by Council of  Sechelt, butlliike Glibwnu, approval of tho  School District budget was held over until  next meeting.  Salvos levelled at. the Hoard Secretary  Treasurer Peter Wilson were, fiml by  Gibsons Village Commissioner Wally Peterson wlw reading from a prepared report staled "Uie budget was accepted In  the past ae a mere formality up until laU  year when it was signed under protect.  This was an increase of 20 per cent over  1he previous Ixidgct and sUirt<cd us looking  into the reawrns for spiralling costa above  r/trmal growth. Some of those- arc, legitimate and easily explained, other reasous  were so far afield that when we ask questions wo receive 'nothing' (answers,"  Following a depressing liM of oxpcndl-  Uurcs, the bulk of wiikh have been previously published in The Time*, Mr. Pater-  wm told fellow commissioners ithat should  council aseej*!, tiwm budget, fully aware, of  all these facts, then, council as elected  rcjirescatatives of ��h�� taxpayer would bc  co��ik��l4ig these "eaiUravagAncos and mis-  manajjeineuts" and ehouid feel asi guilty  il  as the scjipol  trustees  themselves.  Expressing the view .that.the excessive  expenditures by the Board all go' back to  the time Mr. Wilson was employed, Comm.  Peterson said "the only solution, as I sec  it, would be to reluctantly accept the budget at the time of the resignation of the  School Board's Secretary Treasurer. He  is, I believe, wholly responsible for our  undue expenses and as long as he remains  we will get nowhere but further,and further into the mdrc. Next year wc would  start complaining again, too late and 'a  ho avail." \  While council 'uoanimouslyl eJiarvd the  views of Commissioner 1'ctcrson, consideration was given the fact that it is hardly  fair ito put tho entire blame upon one man  and'even though he is tbe paid administrator the trustees themselves are equally  guilty. Jt was therefore moved acceptance  of the budget be shelved until tiie next  meeting during wlilch time commissloncra  will consider what action lo take.  SECMfcLT AGREES ,  M<"mtMTn of Sechelt Council followed  up on Comm. I'ctcrflon'B report by expressing exjual concern arwl although council as  a   whole   indicated   extreme   di&approv.  al, Chairman Bill Swain said he did not  think it fair to lay the entire blame on one  man. "There is a Board of Trustees wbo  should 6houldcr equal blame," be 6aid.  Comm. Thompson said he was more inclined to support Comm. Peterson for while  we do indeed have a Board of School Trustees, the Secretary Treasurer appears to  be a large part of the operation. Comm.  Adele de Lange commented that it is obvious commissioners all feel the same way  in tiiat tho budget is excessive, "It is extraordinary the way it has increased from  1964 to the present time,' 'she said.  INFORM VICTORIA  Chairman Swain, suggesting something  should be done by way of informing the  Department of Education of'council's feelings in the matter, asked Clerk Ted Rayner what means there were available for  doing tliis. He was told the situation calls  for an efficiency expert to investigate tho  non-teaching and administrative staff organization. It was explained that costs for  arbitration cpuki prove more than the village can afford. *  Comm. de JUange said she did not like  the way many tilings were ihidden during  tlie earlier meetings with the Trustees,  Comm. Nelson questioned the fantastic  telephone expenditure and Comm. ftodway  said Uiat without <he Secretary Treasurer  present to explain things he would not havo  understood a thing about tiir budget. "In  fact, come, to think ot it, he made things  even worse," he added.  Regarding the school muac program,  the Chairman said, "we were told of a  petition circulating seeking after school  musical instruction, this could have been  about six names, too bad we did not e*Jk to  see it."  On a rnotion by Coram. Thompson it  was agreed 4hc budget approval bc left in  abeyance peodi^s further word from Cib-  sirts Council -ond posxlbty the Board of  School Truitoei.  SUNSHINE Coast Lions Club will again  take over responsibility for operation of  Sechelt's May Day celebrations. What has  proved a popular event for some years has  previously been operated by committees or.  groups working in co-operation' wi.th council  but last year permission was given by  council for the Lions to assume full responsibility on a trial, basis.  Letter to council from the club indicated  that as usual members are actively preparing for 4he celebration and asked did  council wish the club to carry on as pre-  viously and if so what financial arrangements were suggested.  Commissioner Morgan Thompson expressed (the view that as the club did such  an excellent job, council should welcome  the offer to undertake responsibility again.  He also suggested ithat as the club received  only $400 last year, considerably less than  costs involved, and considering rising costs,  Council should Increase the grant to $450.  Questioned by Chairman Bill Swain as  to whether the club makes money from  tlie event, Comm. Chuck Rodway agreed  that while funds are raised from various'  sections of the May Day project, ithat phase  involving ithe queens, court and hands, etc.  did indeed cost more than council grant.  This was previously financed entirely by  Council.  The Chairman said he appreciates the  work carried out by (the club and realizes  Uie intent is to bring in more bands in  order ito provide a large May Day as in  the past, however, he feels that council  has many commitments and the $400 grant  la6t year was quite generous,  Commissioner Thompson argued that  whilst $400 has been previously budgeted, ,  cowls have increased considerably, therefore in light of the fine Job done last year  by the lions he would move an increase  of $M>.  Following comment by Comm. Adele de  Lange that many people welcome the  annual event, council unanimously appro v.  ed  tlie  increase.  SEWER  SYSTEM  Further oon!>ldcraiti<m was given prospect of installation of- a aewer ��y*4em for  the village and although Uie Chairman said'  he did not think borrowing power of the  village would be anywhere near tho amount  required, it Is planned to discuss the matter  with (the Union Board of Health engineer.  ��� ���' The Chtirasan ��aid that to a discuwtei  with engineer Maitim Dayton. Mr. ��ayUm  had stated'ihe wwld be paying' a visit to  Victoria during wMcfti foe woanHd toe pleased  to discuss the matter <a>rar tlBaone ��as behalf  of council. However,, sinnce iBaem a leUter  from the compaany ��J Dayton ami Knight  to council now offers to Ibofc junto, tube situation for a fee off ^j��. "In lagbl ��tf,HMs, I  would suggest that ratfeer tUbaum give them  $250, we aval! awirsellwes of .HA*  offered by the Boatmd of BleaMa,'  man added.  During a dlscuMiem wiitth Mr,  stance  advised "there was no cause to worry" in  that they were in sound condition and  W3uld comply with regulations. Watson  also advised council a real estate agent  had suggested that the adverse publicity  could make the homes hard, to sell. "Fur-  dher to this," he added, "there bave been  a few, supposedly joking, remarks going  around that as Chairman of the Regional  Board I was responsible for bringing build-  log restrictions into the unorganized art  eas, then by devious means I build in the  village in order to avoid these by-laws."    '  In warning council that in future such  statements should be checked before being  ��st4ered-m public, Watson urged council to  acgujre the services of Ma^aeburn in order to make sure the"tm3$fjmg hy-laws are  adhered to.  ���* i  BEWARE PRESS      fJJ "  Chairman Bill. Swain rented.that council is presently considering such action and  on behalf of Comm. Rodway explained he  had no doubt his remarks i were made in  good faith. Also as a now^member of  council be has yet to realize that with the  press at each meeting there are times when  some things' should perhaps not be reported- ';���;-. ������;';;'  Watson reminded him the press has  every right to be present at council meetings'and thai it is up to commissioners to  make sure of their facts when making  statements. "They have the right to publish anything that is 'said," lie added,  Comm. Rodway said that in regards to  the statement that the homes were condemned at Port Mellon, he was simply  asking a question rather than making a  statement of fact. The Chairman however  agreed-with Watson that this was not hit  understanding and that in his opinion there  was nothing wrong With tbe press report.  Comm. Harold Nelson expressed the  view that under the circumstances any  building to be brought into tlie village  should be approved by a building inspector first It was subsequently moved a letter be sent to the Regional Board seeking  the services of Mr. Raebum to act for tho  Dayton,  pa��eX_^yillagc]  February meeting...

Isabel Dawson  THE Ifirst full week of the Second Session  of the 28th Parliament,of British Columbia has been completed, and I must say  it has'���been a rather lively one so far, full  of a great deal of debate, and one could  almost say, interspersed by regular speeches" on the Throne Speech.  Monday, we heard from the Leader of  the Official Opposition, Mr. Stracham, and  the Leader of'the Liberal party, Mr. Per-  r'ault, and because of an amendment coming in between, we sat Monday evening as  well.  Then ithere followed speakers from all  parties, the Attorney-General leading off  for the Government on Tuesday afternoon,  the  Minister of Health,  Wednesday,  the  Minister of Labor, Tuesday, and the Minis-  tes of Industrial Development on Friday.  T^ere were some interesting and important  highlights   aside  from  the speeches  themselves, which on the whole, I found  were well prepared and delivered. There  were divisions of the House, on amendments to the Throne Speech which sparked heated debate from all sides. Two rather unusual events occurred on Thursday.  .,. I was, to say the least, surprised and  rather amazed when the Minister of Labor stated that the Workmen's Compensa-  tioh Act would go.to the Labor Committee  for study, there was  vocal objection, or  outcry  from  the NDP   Oppositioin Mem-  Dated Jan. 15, 1968.  1362���Pub. Feb 14  Although the defendant could well have  afforded to pay the $20,000, his lawyer was  strongly opposed to setting a precedent in  this manner. Considering the number of  accident attributed, to an "Act of God",  counsel argued that it would not be long  before his client would be stripped of all  his worldly possessions. Right from the  start, the proceedings were plagued by one  infernal delay after another, until it seemed  the case would go on to eternity. A feeling  of unreality .pervaded the whole affair, and  many people (remarked that it was absolutely out of 'this world.  When the decision was made public,  there was the devil to pay, but the plaintiff  seemed quite satisfied, and bis lawyer exhibited an almost unholy glee.  Many people, howeyer, felt a sense of  foreboding when ithey heard that the defendant had elected to "settle the matter  out of court"���a conclusion with highly  ominous overtones.

MOST rural districts contain areas  that  are especially favored by  a "sheltered  location so that they are warmer than the  general, average>of (the district.   A south- .^worjjjI1g people  have been desk thumping instead, espec  ially as we all know the B.C., Federation  of Labor had requested the action of the  Minister.  Howevers one should be fair about this,  for ajl members of the House recognize  such vocal protests as just that, protests,  that occur on most matters brought up in  the House. All Members in the House, I  am sure, are in agreement, that.<:'in��-..-^ct  should get complete "airing" before passing through the House and becoming law.

Phone BBC 9303, Gibrvms, B.C.  130��<fn  ward slope of good sandy loam sheltered  from cold northerly winds by rising land  behind and'forest growth would be an instance of such an area, particularly if. it  were near the shore; 'that late frosts would  be tempered by a great body of water. ^  Those who use lon��,^or4s] would say  that such areas enjoy a^'micro-climate''.  and it is worth noting -that a northward  slope of cold clay soil can also claim that  distinction. Being colder than the average,  it may still be useful for plants that require such conditions. 1 \ ���  But one naturally prefers the waijm  aspect and it is just now, when the appearance of every late-winter flower brings us  a glad message, that we note and appreciate the difference even a short distance  can make. I. could walk down to my  friend's house near the shore in ten'minutes or iso, leaving no sign whatever of the  life that still sleeps under the >od oh my  own place. I would find the snowdrops  and-tiie crocus in full flower, with the  green fronds of the daffodils already above  ground, promising buds to follow soon.  Those,, "daffs" will certainly "come before  the swallow, dares and take the winds of  March with beauty," but mine will not;  the swallows will' have built their nests  before I find ithe first yellow trumpet. \  Before any development work Is done  on such an area the wild native growth of  every kind--will tell the, same story, as'  birds and insects know. There is a full  month,of difference and in all the years I  have never quite become used to it. Someone suggested a move as the obvious cure  but when one is dug in for bis last stand,  that might be rather serious���and the old  guard is reluctant to isurrender.  Also I had my fun with micro-climates  years ago when we held a large acreage  and work was play to me. In addition to  the main cropping area, we cleared, fenced  and cultivated three outlying gardens on  sites chosen especially for early growing  on a commercial scale. That required considerable/labor. Tho views that my friends  expressed on those projects would be unfit  for family reading and their reports of my  doings to others would be worse 1 But  nothing cared lj as the hippies of today  would put it. I was doing "my thing", and  with satisfaction. For all those outlying  gardens paid off in returns, bdth in good  average growing years and the odd years  of cool, wot summers when all the blight  and fungus and mildew troubles were on,  the rampage.  Our plantsi growing strongly on those  chosen flpwlts showed high resistance, and  even  tliose   so  susceptible   to   trouble   as  tomatoes   stood   up   and  ."took   it"   and  cropped well Jn a year of general failure, /  Vivo le'micro-climate!

Federation met with myself and I  feel we had a frank discussion various  matters brought up which will assist me  ih my own study of the Act.  Another event that camenpjor- discus-  siow was the mbt^oh ot the Attort^^3en-  eral that the Repor^of the RoyaT Commission on Gasoline Prices be placed, before  a Special Committee. This report was before a committee last Session, and although  it.was decided, at the..time, to lay it over  uitil the 1969 Session; because of strong  requests for it to be brought up again this  year, this has been done and as- a result  goes to a Special Committee. I do hot  think Opposition was expected to this being  done. However, after a very heated debate and a division being called, all the  Liberal Members with\ only four NDP  members . voted with tfye Government in  favor of it going to Committee. Standing  committees have now been appointed, ahd  it looks like some of these committees are  going to be,very busy indeed, and this is  good.  .. Tuesday evening I gave my first speech  and it was in main, my report on what I  had done this past year although I did  is^peak on Elderly Citizens Housing in some  detail. On my next speech which will be' on  the Budget, I will be going into more detail  oh various phases of the Elderly Citizen  , as well as the Riding itself.[Date for this  speech is February 23rd.

On Friday night they travel to Alpha Junior  Secondary in North Burnaby and on Saturday, move on to Squaimish. This was one  of the reasons why our Valentine Dance  was postponed to the following weekend.  Our teams' were unable to travel to Hugh  Boyd Junior Secondary in Richmond last  weekend due to a cancellation from that  school. It if hoped the games will be held  in the near future.  Mrs. j Richardson, girls' rP.T. instructor,  has set up a schedule ofhpon-how "house"  basketball games for senior and intermediate  girls.   No one should  be  mixed  up  during play now, thanks (to-an efficient  schedule.

The new library is coming along quickly;  the' carpet was put down this week.  ��� Friday at noon "The Company", a  group of fun-minded students on the Peninsula, decorated one of Elphie's prize trees.  "As"you walked-over~to"the"shopping centre"  you could see a tree, gaily decorated with  tin foil, wire and colorful finery. The good  weather this past week has brought a few  of the classes outside and Mr. Portman has  taken pictures of them.  Lately there has been controversy over  the length of boys' hair, and we have ithe  opinions of some members of our student  body. Here they are: "It's okay as long  as it is kept neat". "If you like long hair  it's your'own business"; "It's the business  of the individual, only. No one has the  right to tell him to get it cut except-the  administration of' the school and the  parents." At this time the influences on him  should only be from these sources, other  than ithe law"; "As long as it doesn't  bother me, I couldn't care less"; "It's his  head; a guy should be able to do what he  wants with at"; "If they want long hair,  why not? It's like having the liquor law.  How many guys under 21 drink? Most of  the teachers seem to be for it"; "It's fine  as long as it is cut clean and doesn't hang  in the eyes when a person is working". .  Sechelt News Notes  Coasi-Capilano MP  Arts Council speaker  -ENCOURAGED by ithe interest in community  resources,  shown recently, by  various groups, the Arts Council has asked  Mr. Jack Davis MP, an outsider ,who can  look at us,objectively but who should know  _us well as-he has an interest ih our well  being,  to  focus our  attention upon bur  community and our human resources.  Mr,  Davis will give .an address on "how to  make our community a better place in  which ito live" on March 23 at Elphinstone.

One of the difficulties encountered by  the Arts Council, apart from .the geography  of the area, has been "ito overcome its  public image created automatically an most  people by the use of the word Art. That  of a group of well-meaning, slightly crazy  people dabbling in paint, dwelling in ivory  towers completely divorced from the business of everyday Mfe of making a living  and bringing up a family.

Trustees from time to time insist  they are guided solely by their own find/  ings and are not. influenced by individuals or groups. This we would question.  They are only human beings and are  as susceptible to pressures and sales pitches as anyone else. We had one little  ^group pressing some time ago for a  psychiatrist This we now have under the  name of.a "Special Counsellor" at the  cost bf $13,1000 annually. Another IMle  group sought music instruction and. this  we how have .at a cost of $9380 plus  salaries amounting to close to $25,000.  These are but two instances of min-  HOSTttJTY toward the Board of School  Trustees by so many taxpayers and  councils is by no means unique for similar protests are presently in vogue  throughout the province and certainly  nor without very good cause.  Most councils are bending over backwards in order to hold budgets down  to a minimum and indeed, so dr> hospital-  boards, and it is a natural re-action to  object strongly to school district budgets which each year reach new heights  of fantasy-  On behalf of the trustees however,  it is pointed out that theirs is far from  an easy,course to navigate,, for, education  seems to have fallen into the category  of the "right forthe plucking"-dassairi  so many pitfalls lie in wait for the unwary administrators. Numerous half-  baked educational aids are.cohhed isnto  the imsuspeetingand^  ed onto the over-burdeheid taifjpayerj  with the insidious insinuation that^ta ire-  fuse *ould% tedeprive the sttt&ats  of facilities utilized elsewhere.  Another^ aspect is the fact that various groups of individuals, more often  than not idealists with heads protruding  above the clouds, indoctrinate certain  trustees with pet projects which, again,  "the students must have". Trustees  themselves make visits to various  schools on the lower mainland and invariably fall for a concept which might  be within the price range of that particular area and return hell-bent on im-  plimenting something similar in their own  district.  One should not discredit trustees for  an ambitious outlook and a keen desire  to ensure |our own students lack nothing,  and, providing the educational standard.  shows a idefmite improvement, then it  ��h^U  3>AN  ority groups at work; The benefits, if  any, of these specific items is another  matter. Sufficient be it to say these are  examples of pressures bought to bear  upon the trusts. They are .elected ty  the people and it would seem every taxpayer and his, or her, dog, have pet  schemes considered worthy of the utmost'support.  Our present system is very much out  of date and changes will eventually be  brought about A standardized school  program is necessary which should ap-t  ply to buildings, poHcy, curriculum, and  accent upon elimination of frills with a  straight forward honest to goodness education as the basic ingredient. This  would take the burden from the shoulders of elected trustees and greatly reduce  experimentation with idealistic clap-trap.  "Next thing jou know we'll need visas to play afthe Forum!"'

In the fall of 1366, (the Port Mellon  Hospital Auxiliary brought the idea of a  Thrift Shop to the co-ordinating * council.  The task of-looking into-tihe-pros-and cons-  of such a venture fell to Port Mellon. In  January 1957 a ^oramittee was formed consisting of two representatives from each  auxiliary to manage the Thrift Shop which  opened for business January 28. Arrangements were made between the hospital  board and the committee for the use of  the Hospital Cottage.  From its inception, this venture has  been a great financial success due to  generous donations from the public and to  the untiring efforts of the six auxiliaries  who staff the shop.  i  Golf and Country Club  preparing for seeding  SUNSHINE Coast Golf and Country Club  directors have now gone into high gear  and announced this week, purchase of a  . used rniek.

Rights and wroni  together with re-actioj  sible groups and the  Trustees are something  /(The main; issue is that at long last one  man has shown sufficient courage to  speak out in public and seek action.  While it was evident fellow commissioners agreed with him, there was an  obvious reluctance to take the necessary  action, in other words, the age old story  "we support you but you shout alone".  We feel Commissioner Peterson deserves high praise for having the courage  of his convictions and whether he be right  or wrong he has at least made a stand  and until others join him by expressing  their views, rest assured, taxes will continue to spiral.  IPop^t's Cwfi&r  FOR an area this size and one which in  the   words   of   certain   provincial-  officialsj "is for the old folks" our school  costs have indeed reached incredibly high  proportions during the past four years.  During the'past months The Times  has drawn attention, by hieahs-UJof-  editorial comment ahd facts, to what we  have considered^ to be an undesirable  situation and one iwhich would have been  expected to brfeg forth considerable  public opinion. Apathy however has led  to these situations prevailing wifli the  result high school taxes predominate.  Regardless bf reluctance by taxpayers to raise protests, they do, nevertheless, continually phone or drop into  our office either commending us for  taking a stand or suggesting we soar to  even greater heights to unload journalistic brick-bats on the perpetrators of the  high1 expenditures- supposedly in the pursuit of education.  We do not fall for this approach for  it is our firm opinion that it is high time  the taxpayer stood on his own two feet  to do something about the matter. We  could all con others into fighting our  battles for us so that we emerge impregnated with the odour of roses when the  ballon bursts; but it is not good enough.  Most of us have been gifted with two  feet and it is high time they were used  to stand upon.  It could be this reluctance to speak  out stems from the fact that the average  'person just has to have a leader and in  this respect perhaps looks to councils  and other semi official organizations to  start the ball rolling. Should such be the  case, then, recent events would suggest  that the ball is about to roll with devastating certainty.   '  A ratepayers association was recently formed at Pender Harbour Which  has already made clear one of its primary  interests is high taxation. Both village  councils  have   expressed  concern   and    ���   ......   .  , ... ���"    ..       ...a.       1.    i     Exploited the ignorant poor.  have met twice recently with the school    , j *-,���.'

'Ihe hospital which is itself a substantial undertaking also operates at an  cxtremclcy low figure, yet school costs,  despite an incomparable student increase or indeed, improved educational  standard, have continued to soar, This js  ' why concern is finally breaking through  for there is always a breaking point and  everyone will go only so far.  Greatest breach came Inst week with  the dramatic lowering of the boom by  Gomniiwsioncr Wally Peterson of Gibsons  who <in a report io council strongly rc-<  commended approval by council of the  196K f.di(H)| district budget bc given only  when the Ktylcct of the secretary  treasurer be dispensed with.

We were giving out infonn-  atloitMhe number of tax dollars available  per pupil. Despite this, our per pupil costs  of operation are still lovi-er than the provincial average. Compared to others, we  are not a poor district.  "School Board extravaganza greatly  concerns councils". It would have been  fairer and more honest to use the word  "budget" in place of "extravaganza". The  board's budget concerns ihe trustees even  more than it does the councillors.  The first draft of the budget, which  contained all ithe things considered necessary by trustees and administrators showed  an increase of 35 per cent over last year's  budget. After many hours of work, it was  finally reduced to 22.356 per cent. We just  ���fhn't- spp. haw ^ ^p^id havp bppn -rut any  further without making serious sacrifices  which would not be in -the best interest' of  our pupils. Most bf the" increases in this  year's budget are beyond 4he control of  the Board. For example, salaries alone account for three quarters of the 22 per cent  increase. As for, teacher's .salaries the  Beard did not just hand out without ;qnes-^  toon, .increases' in wa|^s���these were decided by an Arburation: Board because the  trustees would -noV -grant the increase requested by (the teachers.

Tbe ifitfee'elementary^remedial reading  teachers -could go./^f-isoine children are  pk-esent but at that time (1929) a family  by .the name of Brewis .rented the cottage  and we knew they had small children. .As  stated we had no truck with' which Io get  to a fire and of course we had to run like  mad to. get to the fire as quickly as possible. I remember Frank French and ^myself running to (this particular fire and X  said COftLE ON FRANK GET GOKG and  he turned to me and said WHO THE HELL  DO YOU THINK I AM? PERCY WILLIAMS? Percy Williams in those days was  a Iambus nmner. (Mr. R. S. Hackett was  the ftre chief and E. S.( Clayton,- Frank  French, Jack Mayne, Cyril X&nower, Fred  Brown were just ordinary firemen).  However, we rushed 4o the Union Store  to pick up pur equipment, axes, buckets,  etc., and dashed along the waterfront to  No.< 8 cottage shouting at each other to save  the WOMEN and CHILDREN first We  arrived at the cottage all out of breath  and panting, to find a large fire on the  beach.  ~ Whoever gave' the alarm saw the - reflection in the windows and thought the  house was in flames. After looking at our  equipment we found that'Mr. Hacked bad  brought -the handle of the axe only and out  of three buckets, two of them had holes;  so we, were ^thankful it was not a real fire.  ,' 'The tlnion Hotel, which stood where the  Home .Oil Tanks are at present, was 4be  biggest fire we had as it contained about  25 rooms, with a large lounge and dining  torn. It tcjs ln��tt of ceaar lambed  throughout and when it got started did not'  last long. It happened at midnight.on a  Sunday evening in July, 1936. It burned  to She ground in about three hours. All  that mas left were the bathtubs, toilets and  Jtaick jehimneys.  . - We had a few funny incidents. The fire  bell was attached to the wall of the hotel  and when Mr. Brawn pulled on the rope  to. ring the bell it all collapsed and fell (to  0ie ground The rope was worn thin and  also the ^boards on <the wall It' had not  beeh used for years.  The forest ranger at the time was, I  suppose, the only one who knew about fire'  figMng and he came with hose and some  equipment. One of the boys, I believe it  was Alan Wood, was on a sbed with the  hose and tbe forest ranger shouted DROP  tae hose. There was a good force of water  as'_U was^ being pumped from thej5ea_and  Alan gave the hose a piteh andlt started"  like a snake with the^ water pouring out.  "f$ie nozzle, made of brass and being quite  biavy, struck the forest ranger on the  head and he was oat cold.  *'* We volunteer firemen got our little hose  from its track. We connected to the Union  water system and shouted, Turn the water  on. We looked at the water just coming  out and then we noticed there was nO  nozzle attached. The nozzle was locked in  the Union Store for safe keeping; we had  lost so many nozzles when they were left  outside with ithe hose. We did not need to  bather as the whole building was destroyed  and we concentrated on ,the store which  was across the road and which had already  caught fire from sparks. Tbe windows  were red ho* with the heat.  As stated ihe fire started at midnight on  Sunday and practically all the guests bad  returned- home on the Union boat leaving  at 6 p.m. Sunday. Only about six guests  were in the hotel. They had rooms on the  -first���fkrarr-^They���-watted- out���in���nigM-  clothes, losing alL clothes and baggage.  Had the fire taken place on the Saturday  al midnight I am afraid there would have  been a loss of life." Every room was taken  on all floors and quite a few children were  staying with, parents. It would have been  impassible to get all of them out-safely.  Each room had a rope attached to a  jing in the floor. The rope had to be  Shrown out of the window, wish the people  in each room leMng themselves down on  the rope. You can imagine how children  would attempt to do 4his stunt especially  in the dark. The only light was from gas  lamps in each room. There was; no electricity whatever. What -a difference now  with our electric light, street lights and a  wonderful Volunteer fire depanfenent.  W. J.

But now, as a result of a school board  decree, it has 'been reinstated.        I  Pender now has a smoking machine.  This consists of a cardboard figure of a  man with tubes running from the lung to  a series of bellows. A cigarette is placed  between its lips and the bellows are -pumped, creating the smoking action. The  machine measures the amount ,ol tar and  nicotine inhaled into the lungs with different brands of cigarettes.  Last Friday Academic English classes,  il and 12, put on two plays. Tlie first, entitled "The Sand Box" was a biting satire  on the wealthy, modern, American family,  their shedding of responsibilities and their  desire to do everything perfectly, including  dying. The play concerns family members  Maureen Gardiner, Jackie Griffith and  Hazel Wray preparing the old grandmother,  portrayed by Wendy 1 lately, for dea4h,  She is placed in a sandbox full of  sand and (toys and she waits to die,  serenaded by guitar music and surrounded  by .the watching family and (the Angel of  Death played by Greg Northrup. He is  lifting weights, and he symbolizes the  American mania for body building,   ���  The second play "Passion, Poison and  Petrification" was a Victorian drama in  which a Lady (Fay Girard's) Jover Adolph-  us (Martin Donley) is poisoned by her  husband   (Claire   Donley).    After   he   has  ���by Donna Vaughan  taken the poison and .the -wife promises the  husband her undying love he decides that  perhaps there was something to be said  for the old arrangement. He tries to. provide an antidote for the poison. The best  one he can .think of is lime so they all  throw their boots at the ceiling. After he  has finally taken lime, in .the,form of a  melted down lime bust, it solidifies and he  becomes petrified. A doctor (Dave Malcolm ) is called. At the end of ithe play  lightning strikes, killing most of the' people.  . Bo;th plays were well acted and enjoyed  by the students. I hope there will'be more  plays.like this in the future.  13.

For instance! the Sechelt Promen-  ' aders (travelled to the*Hopkhis Hall ifcOr-jom  the Gibsons Squarenaders  and four sets  were present.   I often wonder if it would  ~ be possible to get ithe Sechelt Pramenaders  on the ball again even if we only made  hall rent ito start with.  I am ever willing.  '      Now   on April   25,   1964,   the   Gibsons  Squarenaders returned the favor by joining  our ��lub at (the St.  Hilda's Hall in  Sechelt.    Then   came   one   of   our   local  callers outstanding events on May 2, 1954,  with a Chinese smorgasbord at the Roberts  Creek Hall and it wals just great to be able  to call ithe sets to a packed house.  On May 18, 1364, we squared up our  sets on .the Shell parking lot in Sechelt  with a very good turn out. Now 'these are  just a few of our successful square dance  undertakings (that people have talked about  for many yearsjso pull uip a chair and I  will fill you in"on ithe next great adventure  of Harry Robertson, Bud Blatchford and  myself.  The itype���St. Patrick's Square Dance  Jamboree on Saturday, March 16, 8 p_n.  till , either the callers give up or the  dancers .call it a day., The placed���Roberts  Creek Hall. All square dance clubs and  square |dancers welcome just bring your  own lunch; coffee, tea and trimmings will  be supplied all evening for free. We would  appreciate advance warning if you should  require billets. It might even be a good  idea ito bring your own sleeping bags. I  am sure .this will not be a square dance  that you will forget in a hurry and by the..  way, the admission donation has toe��fa  slashed to 98 cents per head so will all  those details in mind we look forward to  happy square dancing.  The next square dance with the Gibsons  Squarenaders will be their Valentines an-  niversary square dance at the Hopkins Hall  on Feb. 17, 1958, at 8:30 p-im.  North Van convention  local Witness speaker  JOHN Risbey, local, presiding minister of  Jehovah's "Witnesses, addressed a convention in North Vancouver this weekend.  Speaking on Saturday morning, Mr.  Risbey said, "One of the chief reasons for  increasing world delinquency is general  apathy to vital issues."  "As Christians, vJe must be keenly  aware of ithe fulfillment of Bible prophesy  in current events in order to alert others."  The convention was attended by 1607  delegates, 75 of whom were from the Sechelt pendnula.  Feature speaker was Laurier Saumur,  of   Toronto,   whose   public   address   was,,  .   "-Will God Intervene in Men's Affairs?"  stresses importance ol vote  IF THE' plebiscite for approval of establishing a community   college   on   the -  -North Shore is passed March 7, it -will, be  the first time a -college has been set up in  existing facilities in British Columbia.  - Because (the four school districts, North  -and- West -Vancouver, Sechelt and Howe  Sound decided to use West Vancouver Secondary School rather than build a college,  costs will be low for operation. '  There will be no money bylaw, only a-'  plebiscite asking if voters approve establishment of a college to serve the four  districts.  If this passes, classes would start in  September.  Peter Jones, chairman of the interim  college committee, said, today that costs  to North and West Vancouver would run  about $7 per year for a family with a home  valued at $25,000. In Sechelt and Howe  Sound, a similar home would be taxed $4  per year for the college. ,  FEE  $200 YEAR  Jones gave details of college hours, cost  and curriculum:  Hours would be 4:15 pjri. to 10:30 p.m.  Monday .through Thursday.   There  would i  be itwo  semesters  of four months  each.  Fee would be $100 for each semester, or  $200 for the full year's term.  There would be three levels for entrance  requirements.  First, for the student entering two year  academic and technological program at  college level, high school graduation would  be needed.  For older .students with less than Grade|  12 standing, ithere would be academic upgrading courses to reach entrance level.  For non-academic, general interest  courses for adults, there would be no prerequisite for admission.  CURRICULUM  Academic���The first year academic  would replace the present Grade 13 in  high school and add another year. These  are transfer programs and students graduating from either first Or second year will  be accepted at universities.  VOCATIONAL  Technical and vocational programs will  lead to careers in tbe 'community. They  will be two years in length and terminal  in character.  They would include accounting, business,  data processing, specialized secretarial  training, drafting, insurance, finance and  investment, laboratory technicians, electronics, and so forth. Particular courses  offered would depend on demand,  ADULT EDUCATION  For adults who seek retraining or upgrading of technological skills, a part-time  program of cultural interest, an opportunity to learn new skills in order to re-enter  business or professional fields, or a worth  while way-in-which-(to use leisure time. **  COUNSELLING ~"~"'-.  i ��� '        ��� -  There'would be an active counselling  service 'which would assist the student in  seeking out and pursuing' the mQstt bene-'  ficiai course for him as an individuaL     ���* (  COMMUNITY SERVICE  This program would see the college become the focal point of tiie educational and.  ���cultural life of the region.  Jones said .with .universities raising  their entrance standards,' more and snore  talented youngsters were denied equal  rights to post high school education.  COUNCIL FORMED  These are the mechanics of the plebiscite.  In each district where the plebiscite is  passed by the electors, the school board  may then participate in the formation of  a community college council, which is the  governing board of tthe collegej and through  'the council will assist in planning the  college itself.  Its students will have a prior right to  attend the college. In any district where  the plebiscite is defeated, the school board  may take no further part in the college,  and its students have no claims to attend  unless there is excess space. They would  also pay a higher fee.  Since the Act at present does not provide for a plebiscite to be offered more  than once in a school district, Jones said- it  was important that the March 7 vote be  passed.  There, are .81 students in Grade 12 in  the Sechelt school district.  UNCLE KICK'S  >  -.-">  Exciting new movie  for Gibsons Theatre  PRIMITIVE rites and civilized wrongs are  the subjects of an exciting new motion  picture, "Weird Wicked World", currently  being presented at ithe Twilight Theatre in  Gibsons.  The camera takes the audience to near���  and far corners of tbe world where strange  customs and habits prevail. Some would  perhaps best be forgotten; some are lovely,  some funny and some beautifully rotten.  Unusual and often shocking customs  from -Borneo, Africa, Hawaii, Germany,  Italy, China, Spain, Hong Kong, Japan and  many other developed and undeveloped  countries are vividly illustrated in Technicolor to make "Weird Wicked World" one  of the oddest and most dramatic of motion  picture entertainments.  Following this, more spectacular entertainment at the Gibsons Theatre, with the  latest action packed Bond movie, "You  Only Live Twice". It's his fifth in the  series, and the first in which he '"dies".  However, Bond is indestructable, and at  least five more films are scheduled.  Special ceremony...  VENTURER Scout Bruce Cobleigh of the  1st Sechelt Scout'Company has Qualified  for his Queen's Scout badge which was  presented by provincial assistant-commissioner, Robert. Sjmrnons at a special ceremony held on /Monday, February 5.  Brace, ithe son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E.  Cobleigh, is the third scout in the Sechelt  district ito attain, this highest award in  scouting.  Regional field executive Jack Adair  prusen!ed achievement badges to Bruce  Cobleigh, pathfinder and lifes'aylng; Jerome  Julian, lifesaving; Scott Henderson, silver  swimming badge. | '  Scout master Norm Burley assisted by  acting assistant Chris Julian and patrol  leaders, invested the following scouts:  Randy Joe, Andy Henderson, Vern Joe,  Mcrrel Dixon, Steve Joe, Marvin Craigen,  Bruce Joe and Willard Joe.  Chris Julian, acting assistant Scoutmaster, was commended by the provincial  assistant commissioner for offering his  services and was presented with a Scouting  beret.  To keep pace with changes in society,  the seoutinn program has changed totf be  more adaptable to the needs of individual  groups of boys and communities, In this  way the Initiative, intelligence, experience  and talent of boys and adults at all levels  of Scouting are best utilized,  People liT the community with specialized talents may now be invited to instruct  scouts,   and  a   boxing .program   has   been  introduced in the Sechelt district. By  making use of persons on a part-time basis,  Scout leaders have more time to perform  their primary task of helping boys,  ACHIEVEMENT  The new achievement and award scheme  focuses on ithe community and out-of-doors,  with all badges relating to these areas.  Primary emphasis is given the Citizenship  badge which is obligatory. There are  'twelve achievement badges: anchor, camp-  . craft, citizen, conservation, |lexplorihg, first  aid, life saving, personal fitness, safety,  swimming and winter Scouting. They are  all designed to complement and encourage  pai'.rol life and many requirements are  carried out by two or three Scouts working  together, while others are achieved by the  whole patrol working together.  Introduced, last year, the new program  has been well received by Scouts and  leaders.
