Trustee Leo Johnson commented, tbat  the only decision reached was to close the  school, it bad not yet been decided where  the students- will attend school.  COST FACTOR  Chairman Don Douglas explained that  cost is becoming a big factor in education  and in fact, the only factor which jsome  people are aware of these days. It costs  something in the'region of $10,000 per year  to keep Halfrnoon Bay School open, whereas the cost of transporting lhe students to  Sechelt would pnly be $2,000. He further  v I explained that ihe area actually does have  *A ' representation on the board; their representative being Mr. Bill Malcolm. The  Board also, acted on the advice of the  superintendent who believes tbe children  will have a better education in a _arger  school. ���:'.

Now retired and  living in Sechelt she has time to paint for  pleasure. Miss Ormrod describes herself  as strictiy a beginner, four years ago  while on a South Pacific Cruise she was  fortunate in being able to take lessons from  .Warren Brandon, the well known CaWorn-  ian artist and Fellow of the Boyal Society  of Arts.  Miss Ormrpd's canvases represent a  variety of land and sea-scapes and a lively,  adventurous mind continually,probing and  searching is revealed in the the variety -of  techniques, media and subjects, oils, water  color, palette knife, traditional and abstract.  Miss Ormrod credits her inspiration to  her long association with the Port Albenn  Sketch Club qt Which she was a supporting,  rather than active, member, and the many  fine artists and craftsmen who were the  founding members of the Alberni Arts  Council. She was a member of the steering committee which formed our Sunshine  Coast Arts Council and is a valued member  of the Gallery Committee.  On Friday, April 19 tbe Gallery will be  open from 7-9 p.m. for a social occasion  to meet the artist.  Coffee will be served.  DONATION ���  Mrs. Kathleen Wells has donated ber  much admired painting of Garden Bay to  r&ise funds for the Gallery. A donation of  25 cents will entitle you to a chance on the  May "draw.  Mrs. O. Swanson, Trueman Boad, Gibsons, was the holder of ticket No. 20, and  won the coffee pot donated by Mrs. Rose  Hauka.

ABOUT eighiy interested residents attended a .meeting Sunday, April 7 of the"  Pfinder Harbour Ratepayers' Associations,  held in the Community Hall, Madeira Park-  at which guest speaker was Vancouver City  Alderman, Harry, Rankin.  Greatest concern of the ratepayers is  rising cost of administration,, specifically,  cost of the Regional District. It was generally considered ithat while certain planning restrictions arc to some extent necessary, the area is not yet ready for rig&S  controls and the administrative cast involved.  Following a lengthy discussion on this  subject, a motion was passed that a committee be formed to investigate possibSE-  ties of opting out of the regional.district.  Some dissatisfaction with the cost of a  regional district has ��� been expressed in  other areas but apart from a small group  at; Selma Park which ��� recently attempted  formation of an incorporation, Pender Harbour bas been the first to indicate desire to  egdsedt' t&- es%8sssi�� further studies" in a  fisrstgo I2iiag_a2ge in the Faculty of Arts  except, _f emsrse; vflasse _dey are proceeding wiEIa Imgnage study on a University  ffim, sttpatemSs _1as�� bave not completed  Frertsfa 11 tat __�� are otherwise admissible fe�� tbe XStases^ty __1 be required to  iske t_t�� years of University, study in  fcxmgca laugmtage at __e University level.

A diner arose from bis table in a fashionable restaurant and walked toward the  door. He was passing the house detective  at the enltrance when a salver stfgar bowl  dropped from his bulging coat..   <  The guest glanced calmly at the officer,  then turned <with, an expression of polite  annoyance toward the occupants of the  restaurant. "Ruffians." he exclaimed.  ,*Wfao threw that?" and walked out.  \PossoMe~tnerger ��� ��� ���  "-1      ���" "   ���'" '     -������iii-    iri._rn   ii..n_r^ i-i.i ���  ii /  Meoioncil Hospital District  could cut down dupUcafou  back for a while  GROWTH ,  Mrs. Van Egmond suggested the board  might consider^ taking more children into  the school from nearby areas and expand  it and there will foe 12 children attending  next year. She also stated that ,< 100 lots  will be, sold this year which could increase  the child population.  Trustee Sheila Kitson observed that the  school can always be re .pened when necessary.  The Pender Ratepayers' Association  started off in January last with thirty members and has increased considerably ever  since. One of tbe Directors told The Times  "I could appreciate the need for an officially recognized bargaining body for the.  Peninsula but when wc consider that for  one year of operation at a cost of near  $30,000 all it has accomplished is provision  of one refuse dump for Sechelt, then it is  time for second thoughts."

At Halimoon Bay . > . v  Liee gen��rd.tIons  __fday-:c_.co��  FOUR ir/cmbers of a Powell River family,  rcirrcecnting three gcncraUons, were  hospitalized at St. Mary's Sechelt following  a week-end accident al Halfrnoon Bay laist  Saiturday morning. Mrs. Eleama Hartley  aged 78, her son John and his son and  daughter Glen and Shirla were on their way  to Vancouver when their light car collided  with a pick-up truck driven by William  Golka 'of Burnaby.  Two ambulanccal rushed to the eccne  and drivers and attendants helped extract  the fotir Injiircd people from the totally  wrecked auto from which they were taken  to hospital. It is understood lhe two younger membcri! of tlio family were released  Monday but Johiv Hartley will remain for  some days Jtscoverlng from .severe head  and faco lactations. His mother Is rcpor-  ted as being In |>oor shape but expected to  recover from a broken shoulder, broken  arm and ribs.  Damage to the truck was not extensive  and both driver and his passenger, William Sharp��, also of tlio Vancouver area,  were uninjured. Sharpa said "Golka was  visiting the area to check some equipment  and I decided to accompany him for the  ride.  "We were about to Uirn io fo the gaa  station when the wheel came'off the truck  swinging us into the oncoming car."  Mm. Hartley was being driven by her,  family to Vancouver, from where *��he was  to leave for a holiday in her native England, which fihe Mt in 1029.  No  charges  have   yet  been laid "but  RCMP officers  arc Investigating dream-  fclanccs and condition of tho truck.  attend Madeira Park School, people will  object and the board will not be able to  convince them.'.[  Tho chairman cone, uded tlie Interview  by saying that once It is established which  school the children will attend, tlio board ���  will arrange a meeting with the parent..  A letter from Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers was later read stating  they are in complete agreement with  transportation of Halfrnoon <Bay children to  Madeira Park School which is only logical  as transportation is available and there is  adequate room in tho school.  SUGGESTION  Regarding proposed Referendum No. 0  and. tlie (building of a senior high school in  the Sechelt area, Mrs. Joyce Ripper of  Gibsons wrote the board stating that thte  is not the right time to build a school. She  suggested that Sechelt senior secondary  school students should travel .o Pender  Harbour Secondary School.  HIGH STANDARD  Pender Harbour Secondary School bas  been notified by ihe Department of Education that It once again qualifies for  accreditation uiilil the fall of J069.  This is the smallest secondary school in  ihe province io attain this high standard  which means that H meets the requirements  of the department and allows teachers to  recommend students bo that they don't  have to write the government examinations.  There are many larger jschoois, parUcularly  In the Unterior, which arc not accredited.  Many things are Jaken Into acto\m before accreditation is granted includ-% tho  on Deacii comi___mmano  COAST Garibaldi  Board   of   Health , bas  lowered tho boom following contansioa- .  tion of beach area at Myrtle Point, Powell  'River, which | has affected consumption of  oysters in the area.

Mr. West expressed anxiety that If  there is delay in selling debentures, the  Regional Hospital District will bave to  resort to temporary borrowing, which 'Will  be an added burden on the taxpayer.  Amendments to the Regional Hospital.  Districts Act state that when the boundaries of the Regional Hospital District are  the same as those of the Municipal Begional District and if the Municipal Regional Board 60 requests, the lieutenant-  Govcrnor in Council may declare the  M.IR.D. to be the Regional Hospital District  for the area and the Regional Board to be  the Regional Hospital Board, tor tbe purposes of this Act.

CHEMICALS RESPONSIBLE  It bas been established that chemicals  can cause malignant tumors in animals,  and that certain malignant tumors are  affected by hormones. A special effort is  beingdirected toward the discovery of new  viruses in animal tenors.  ' ffisto-Pathology���the differences between  the normal cell and that of the more  tumorous cell are being investigated; this  has been made possible by ithe use of the  light microscope and a . new high-speed  centrifuge which was invented by an  Ontario-bom scientist.  Genetics���_he study of chromosomes by  microscopic examination has shown that  ithere is a frequency of change in the  chromosome pattern of cancer.  Biochemistry���the type and chemical  behaviour of components of cells, the difference between normal cells and malignant  ceUs in itheir ability to utilize food stuffs  and (their response to various chemicals,  the chemical nature of tumor-causing  viruses are all under study.  IMPROVED METHODS        '  Diagnosis and treatment���improvements  in the diagnosis and location of tumors,  have been made through the use of radioactive isotopes, while great improvements  have been made in surgical (treatment and  radiotherapy, ithe "only two'methods known'  today to cure cancer.

Fact: Both the Craigmont strike of  '65 and the present six month long IWA  strike have affected Mcrritt's overall economy to the point where government intervention may soon be the only hope  for survival.  Fact: A short walk down the main  streets of Merritt should convince, even  the most skeptic observer that the community is suffering. About 15 empty  business premises now dot Merrill's  downtown section like decaying eye  sores. I 1  Fact: Of the remaining business, almost all are suffering from a heavy drop  in business volume, and layoffs are becoming more numerous every day.

On tthe Lund highway the group was  told that its condition is presently under  investigation by the department of highways and repairs .will be made as soon  as possible. "The situation will be remedied as soon as the routine budget estimates  are handed down," Ulrs. Dawson said.  Concerning ithe Comox Queen Miard said'  that the department is completely aware  and sympathetic that relief must be given  on the Little Raver to Powell River run.  There are, however, many protWems that  will delay action itaken on the problem,  according to Jolin.  "For one thing there is not another  vessel available which is the size of the  Comox Queen. The teniinals are not suitable for either tbe Langdale Queen or the  Sechelt Queen. The solution lies only In the  complete renovation oE the landing at  Little River,"-Jolin said.  A suggestion by Al Mantoanni that the  Powell River Queen be used in that run if  the Sechelt Queen comes to Saltery Bay  will foe considered by the department.  4 jamming up the meeting Jolin said Ithat  Jfce i-oup'was given a sympathetic hearing  and he felt that some action would result  from the sessions.

Sir���May I take this opportunity to  express my sincere appreciation for the  truly amazing support and encouragement  we have received from citizens in all walks  of life and from all sections of the province  who agree with ithe principles of the new  labor legislation (Bill 33).  It has not been possible for me to  answer personally all the letters I have  received from those such as trade unionists, housewives, pensioners and the ordinary "man-on-the-street" who know they  have most to lose from protracted labor-  management disputes.

HYPERTENSION AND ITS PROBLEMS  In using the term "hypertension," the  doctor usually refers to the condition in  which the very small blood vessels of the  body show increased resistance to the flow  of blood. This, according to The Canadian  Medical Association, is associated with an  increase in the bipod pressures,  This is the so-called essential hypertension, probably the commonest form.  Approximately 5 percent of <the, adult population of Canada is affected, and the  disease is somewhat more common in  females than in males.  The association of diabetes; obesity, kidney disease and high blood pressure is  well known. Certainly being overweight is  a definite factor, although the exact reason  is not completely clear.  Thus Die person who is overweight, or  who has a family history of high blood  pressure or diabetes, particularly during  middle age/is a prime candidate for hypertension. A routine medical examination  may discJose the presence of hypertension  long before the patient develops symptoms  of it.  ' The CjM.A. reports that tho judicious  use of reducing diets, salt restriction, and  if necessary ono or more of the many prescription drugs available, can contribute a  great deal to the patient's well-being. In  many cases this type of treatment can  delay or prevent the serious complications  of high blood pressure that occur in such  vital organs as the heart, kidneys I and  brain.

"A  series of technical papers will be forwarded-  to these spokesmen before they* meet with'  Department officials at - various-ioc^ns'  across the country, in late April'or'early  May. ,   . . ���, \  PROVINCES CONSULTED  The-Minister said later that the provinces will also be consulted as many' of  the changes being discussed have a direct  bearing on .heir attitude to Indian Reserve  Communities.  , '  "We have discussed the kind of changes  the Indian .people want'with the Regional  Indian Advisory Councils and-the National  Indian Advisory Board," the Minister said.  "Now it, is time to go -to the. Indian  people and make certain that the changes  being discussed are along the lines-they  want. We do not have any fixed, views  except that the Act should provide more  scope and should not restrict the individual".  Tbe booklet, called "Choosing A Path"  includes a message from the Minister, a  statement of-the objective of the Government, and discussion of the various, parts  of the Indian Act. The booklet says tbe  Government wants to repeal the sections  on liquor unless the Indians themselves  want these restrictive parts of the Act  retained.  ALLOWS CHOICE  The Minister said that he had discussed  the Indian Act with his Cabinet colleagues  and the government has agreed to support  an Act which will allow,Indian bands to  choose from a' number of options, the form  of self-government which will suit them  best. . <      ,,  "My colleagues have given preTiminas  approval to some other changes whidh  might be made following consultation,!"  said Mr. Laing, "But we must know  extent to which tbe Indian people thi  selves want changes, and the nature of trie  changes before we come up with a finisbejd  Bill. [  "This will not! be an  the Indians. 1 suppose that no one will gt  everything he wants, but he will certainly  be beard and if enough agree alboui .specific points, you ca.n be sure that we will  pay close attention."  The book says that, the government's  objectives for the Indians to have social,  educational, economic and political equality; to iielp to preserve the Indian values  and cultural heritage, and to provide as  wide a' measure of self-government of Reserves communities as the Indians in eadf  community "are willing to support.'  GOVERNMENT AS TRUSTEE  Defining social equality as meaning tbat  Indians are accepted as individuals in their  efforts to earn a living; in their, social life  and in the organization of their communities the booklet says that the role of government will gradually become that of a  , trustee for Indian lands and mil provide  service and expert help where Indians and  Indian Bands ask for it.

J  I .wish to thank the oroara of trustees  for their support of the music program  which I have attempted to establish in the  schools.  I am deeply interested in and also concerned about the future of -music education  and the opportunitie^Hiat can be provided  for Hie children. 4 have found the children  most responsive ig^ali.of- the schools and  their potential for learning and achievement, through (tfeu discovery of their  abilities and skills/1$. unlimited. There is  concrete evidence' of ���> progress, which >1  should like to discuss." The following facts  are offered in support of any belief that  progress has been made.  I.   PROGRESS  REPORT  1. Op June 11,' 19S5. I submitted to the  district superintendent and mailed a copy  to the. board of trustees, a '''Proposed program for music education for the Sechelt  School District No. 46." I should like to  state that most of the objectives listed have  been attained. I should like to draw attention to page 3, III, Summary:  "Before a program of music education  can proceed, it will be necessary to know  about policies and budgets. May I please  have a reaction to tbis proposed program."  I received no answer, comments, criticisms or suggestions from Gordon <E. Johnson, district superintendent, regarding this  proposed program for music education.  2. A balanced music education program  includes general music education for kindergarten through Grade 12, choral and  instrumental music instruction. The band  and orchestra program was begun as well  as the choral program in the fall of 1985  and some of the results were seen at the  first festival given in May, 1966. Hhe general music program which involves the  teaching of singing, the development of  co-ordination, ear-training and listening became a major project. In-service training  for teachers/demonstrations by myself in  tbe classrooms, district workshops and  ���many other means were employed to upgrade the teaching and co-ordinate work.  3. At considerable personal expense, 1  took three research courses at the University ot British Columbia, prepared a survey  for the British Columbia Music Educators'  entitled "The status of instrumental music  education in the public schools in British  Columbia." (March" 31,196T). This research  led to a continuation .of studies in Czechoslovakia and Hungary where the most progressive ideas and methods and teaching  material had been developed. Progressive  school districts in most of the countries of  the western world, as well as the far east  and,Russia, have been effected by these  contributions in music education. In 1966 I  began to introduce some of these ideas into  the schools of this district and bave continued to make available to the teachers  and children, the fruits of -my research.  The results were and are easily seen  through observation within the classrooms  where these ideas have been put into effect  i 4. The finest teaching aids, musit books  and supplies have been provided for every  school.  5. The co-ordination, as well as the  organization of the music program, has  required a considerable amount of office  work which is unavoidable. In spite of  this, work that had to be done1, was done.  The monthly reports to the.district superintendent will show a considerable amount  of time that I spent in the schools in  supervision, consultation, teaching, demonstrating and in conference with the principals. I have thefsc reports ito substantiate  this statement for the board of trustees  upon its request.  I make this offer so that I may rpfute,  with facts, statements consistently made by  the district superintendent that too much of  any time was spent in administration and  not enough time was spent in the schools.  .' . 6. A second festival was presented in  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  Post Office Bids., Sechelt- Phone 885-2333  TUESDAY-���11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  THURSDAYS���11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  SATURDAYS���3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  v7. During'this school year a document  concerned with analysis <rf the duties and  responsibilities that I assumed and carried  out as supervisor of music, was made  available to each* member-of the board  and also to the district- superintendent. A  review of this report will >how the, complexity of my position and fhe amount of  time required to carry out all the duties  outlined in this document' This position  was not one that could be filled in a seven  or eight hour day but has required work  throughout the day and tbe evening seven  days a week over the past'three years.  II. OBSTACLES TO PROGRESS  1. With one exception, Gordon Johnson,  district superintendent of schools, has failed  to support me in my efforts to establish  and develop a music education program in  the schools.   The  exception came  about  because of a petition signed by over a  hundred parents who requested more school  time for the teaching of instrumental music.  The first report that Mr'. Johnson prepared  and submitted to me, to the school trustees  and the department of education in Victoria, was the first poor report  I have  received during my 37 years of teaching. ]  have in my possession the confidential re  ports of college presidents and superintend  ents of schools covering a period between  1928 and 1985 which I am prepared to offei  to the board of school trustees for examina  tion.  All of these reports are positive and  enthusiastic in referehce to me  and mj  work.  It seems strange that in this school  district  there should be  such  a   drastic  change in my abilities and work as was  suggested in Mr. Johnson's first report in  May, 1966.  Since my coming to this district, and th(  beginning of my work in 19S5 until tin  present time, Mr, Johnson has not one*  been in any classroom where I was teach  ing, demonstrating for the teachers or in  any other manner carrying out my work in  the schools. Mr, Johnson's report was  based upon .the opinion of others rather  than from actual knowledge gained from  his own observations. If an inspector is  charged with the responsibility of giving an  actual and factual report, it would seem  most unfair to gain these impressions  second hand and also with limited information.  2.   The   instrumental   music   program  which got off to a good start in 1985, was  discouraged by 'Mr. Johnson and, in many  cases, supported by the principals of tbe  elementary schools.   In spite of the phenomenal (growth of instrumental music education in this province, and the high degree of success   of   instrumental   music  education in the Powell Biver district, Mr.  Johnson continuously tried to limit the band '  and orchestra program here.   Tbis  was  done, particularly in the school year 1966-  1967, by an order to the effect that general  music must  be  programmed first.    Tbis  forced-the principals and myself to schedule band instrument instruction for 20 to  80 minutes at the end of the school day  once a week.   Robert Williams, who was  employed in September, 1967, was unable  under this program to teach satisfactorily  ���hence .the petition for more instructional  time   mentioned    above.     This   condition  seriously set back the band program which  led to public criticism. When the critics of  the music program were most vocal Mr.  Johnson was quoted in the press as saying  that'the music program was not good but  he hoped that it would get better.   This is  hardly the kind of support that would give  confidence to me. Mr. Williams, the schools  or the public.  3. On February 7, 1988, a letter from  Mr. Johnson to me discussed the music  program and his personal opinions as well  as those shared by some members of the  board of school trustees regarding the  question of whether or not there should be  a supervisor of music for this district. Mr.  Johnson, in this letter, stated that he believed that there should be a supervisor of  music to plan and co-ordinate the music  program. .  On Monday,, March 25, 1968, Mr. Johnson informed me that he wa6 recommending to the board of trustees that the position of supervisor of music should be abolished. Again, in a little over a month, Mr.  Johnson has reversed his position. He  gave as his reasons criticisms from some  principals and teachers. I should like to  repeat that without first hand knowledge,  through direct observation within the classrooms, this is a questionable procedure to  follow... I have urged Mr. Johnson to accompany me and see for himself the progress that tlie children arc making within  the; classrooms of our schools.

SUMMARY  This lengthy letter has been carefully  and thoughtfully prepared so that the school  trustees may be motivated to consider all  sides of this problem���namely the future  of music education in this district.   It is  impossible for any member of the teaching  or administrative staff to do his best work*  without support, without confidence and in  the face of certain pressures that inevitably  grow out of the kinds of relationships and  situations created (by iMr. Gordon Johnson.  The unrest, the, open icriticism by some" of  the principals  of Mr.  Johnson are  well '  known. My purpose in making these state- *  ments is to help, not hinder, the correction  of' a critical and dangerous situation that ,  has developed within our schools. ^    |  I should like-to conclude with the sincere *  hope that this school district may solve its '  problems for the sake of the children who j;  deserve the best.

Sharp, unlike other" candidates,  is not going -o be a>le to shut ibe'dopr on  Departmental worries when "he "moves to  the" convention centre. Tbere #re too many  problems arising out of the decision of the  gold pool eonntfjes two weeks ago which  jresulted in'tlie so-called two price syste^.  Some.may prove in ibe end to b? Academic  but "in case they are not tbe Canadian  government must.be prepared. Others are  practical and immediate.

Gold pool, countries bate said 4here will be no need- to  buy from the private'market. This may  not directly affect Canada's traditional export of gold from its O-^mines to the  United States which amounts to between  $60 million, and $70. million a year.     v ~  Under itbe Emergency Gold Mining  Assistance Act���the emergency seems' to  haye beeome almost permanent* and costs  the taxpayer about $12 million a year���  subsidized mines have only one outlet for  their" gold, tbe Royal Canadian Mint The  Mint buys the "entire output, at the-Canadian  equivalent o�� tbixty-^Ye American dollars  per "ounce less jll> cents.   -  The-gold is retained and deMyered to tbe  Exchange Fund which in turn, until sow,  w  WaMdomxim^ghts  ^'lf''  I  U  ���A < >  <-,  \\  ���by Mary Gross  show decrease in Feb.  ififAWC wrij^&tas bseq in yogas in the ,, purist battle ''oyer' ^educatirig 'the whole.

The'mines standing on their own feet,  have, tbe option of selling in the free'  market or to Ibe Mint but there is no  obligation on tbe part of Ibe Mint to buy  it. While the free market price remains  about $35 'an ounce U.S. there is no problem. The,Mint will continue to. act..as  refining agent, shipping the gold for export  as directed, by tbe, mine. About-$30 million  to $40 million is disposed of yearly through  tbis channel.  '  But suppose tbe price on the free market  drops below $35 aS~many experts believe it  wiLL Gold production of tbe non-Communist-world' is -about, twice the .amount, the  fr^e market bas been absorbing. While-the  .subsidized mines would still bave a.floor  as .veil as a ceiling at ,$35. The uosubsid-  ized mines--would nave''to catch-as-catch-  can on the free market or take whatever  price the Mint would pay. '  One suggested solution ds tbat the Exchange $\md should buy the entire Canadian" output, as monetary gold ahd bold in  tbe reserves whatever could not be exported to tbe United States or shipped elsewhere as monetary gold. This would mean  tbat Canada would bave a one-price gold  system which might be costly for tbe  taxpayer. Every purchase of Canadian  gold means an advance from the Treasury  which in this case might be a very tlong  term loan. \  That raises another .problem. \  Under the 1965 agreement with the  United States, Canada has unlertaken not  to let hex reserves of gold and VS. dollars  exceed $2,550 million. Whenever they  reached this ceiling she would have to get  rid of U.S. dollars by purchasing Canadian  or other'securities held by Americans and  turning them over to Ibe government's  security holdings.  .   All this' means  that Mr.  Sharp must  soon: .   k ������ ,      i  1. Amend tbe Gold" Bullion regulations,  This can be done by Order _n .Council.  ^   2. Probably amend the Emfergency Gold  Mining  Assistance  Act  which   will  need  legislation. \  ; 3. Ajpproacb the Americans with a view  , to revamping the 1955 agreement.  Another question that must be discussed  soon with the Canadian chartered banks  and other dealers ih gold is whether Canada, under tbe drcumitances, Is to be part  of the world's private market for trading  in gold. There is no law in Canada against  holding gold or since 1056 importing or  exporting it. In spite of this gold irading  until recently bas been a relatively small  operation.  As in other countries, Canadians joined  the wave of gold buying. A good many of  these buyers were newcomers from Europe, some of whom had bad experiences  which made them distrustful of, paper  money in any event.

The language arts program of the elementary schools comprises oijal and silent  reading, oral and written' language,' spelling and handwriting. Teacberjs must assess  the relative emphasis on listening, speaking, reading and .writing, ^oday's world  is one in which tbe ability .to listen to radio,  television; record player, tape recorder and  talking. film, and .then Ho interpret and  evaluate it, is of utmost importance to a  citizen who needs to understand local, pro  vincial, national and international affairs.  I Good listening habitsr are recognized,  -cultivated and practised from a child's  cintry into school and throughout ins school  life.    -   -     -n^-  i Reading is not simply the-ability "to  pronounce words. Meaning must be attached to these words.' Comprehension of what  is read, is the first necessity, but there are  many reading skills-that are crucial. Children must have skill in locating information,  in organizing material, in taking notes, i in  converting notes to connected talk or writing, in outlining,'in recognizing sources of  information on any. problem, and in-developing ways of recalling or of memorizing  those facts and principles. ;  Dramatics, not necessarily dramatic  play,'is another, example'of language arte.

'���   '  Tables were set on either side of the  hall and, as lhe .guests took their places,  coffee and dainty cakes were served. With  suitable background music the models were  introduced by Mrs. Margie Christiansen,  who gave a most interesting and entertaining commentary on the costumes that were  displayed. These were chosen with a world  cruise in mind as indicated by the theme  of the show, "Spring Around The World."  During one pause in the program, as  the commentary'took guests on an imaginary trip Ito.London, two old fashioned  flower sellers carried baskets, of flowers  among the tables for sale to anyone who  wished to take borne a spray. These were  contributed by Bon Smith of Griffith Rubber Mills, Vancouver. Wolfgang Buchhorn  gave two selections on accordion and Mrs.  Lucille Mueller entertained with two vocal  solos.  - Fashions were from Helen's Fashion  Shop and H. -Bishop Ladies' Wear. Makeup was by Mrs. Laurie Girard and the  jewelry was by Mrs. Hazel Graham. Haute  Coiffure of Vancouver sent three hair  dressers to do coiffures for the models and  also donated cosmetic samples that were  on the tables.at each place.

Bums, M.D. Dr.  Burris was one of the founders of the  Burns Medical Clinic in Kamloops, Ms  brother having earlier started a general  practice there. This is an account of  pioneering in the medical profession, all  the way from kitchen table surgery in  isolated regions to the establishment of a  modern up-to-date medical clinic.  Dr. Burris spent considerable time an  Vermillion, Alberta and Battleford, Saskatchewan, before joining his brother in Kamloops. Several chapters are devoted to  experiences both as a doctor and in participation in land development as the railways pushed westward.  1 There is another chapter dealing wi-h  the early days, of Kamloops and a brief  biography is given of some of the early  pioneers in the medical profession. A  worthwhile book, especially to those interested in all aspects of early pioneering.  Physician and Fur Trader���This is the  diary of ���William Fraser Tolmie for a ten-  year period from 1832 to 1643, giving complete details of a trip around the Horn ais  ��� a young medical officer on Ws way to join  the Hudson's Bay Company at Fort Van  couver in Oregon Territory.  Besides being the medical officer at the  Fort, Tolmie was also a botanist and  scholar anl he identified and classified  many of the native plants. After some  years he also took active part in the fur  trade,  Aside from his regular work be found  time to read all literature that arrived on  tbe company boats and the titles of books  that are mentioned range all the way from  classic poetry to history and of course  medical workb.  This diary makes fascinating reading,  giving, as it does, a first hand account of  every day life at the Fort and both friendly  and hostile encounters with the Indians.  Dr. Tolmie returnel to Europe to further  his medical studies in France and then  returned to the Columbia River to take up  duties as chief factor at Ft Nisqualiy.  Here tbe diary ends.
