According to correspondence, Mr. REPORT CARDS  Wolfe is presently on an extended trip to  Europe.  The costs apparently 'covered court  work and arbitration hearing and trustee  Johnson commented that most of tbe time  seems to have been spent travelling. Trustees felt they are obligated to pay tbe fee  but it was suggested that next time an arbitrator be hired who lives a little closer to  the distort.  Principal of Elphinstone, Mr. W. S. Potter reported that 365 report cards had been  picked up by parents and felt thait the arrangement was quite successful this year.

Mr. Dixon  will report back to 'the fire ntarshall who  may have missed the two exits. The fire  hydrant is required and regardless of who  pays for it should be installed rather than  jeopardize the schools.  Trustee Johnson commented .that this  had been discussed 2-3 years ago when the  fire department agreed it was their responsibility. "The board is always getting  slugged; it was the same with tbe sewer  system,'' said the trustee, who recommended that the matter be referred to tbe Planning Committee.  NOT   EXCITED  Superintendent Gordon Johnson commented he was net excited about a suggestion by Mrs. Jean Silvey of Egmont  that a play or nursery school be established in the one unused nom at Egmont  School. Mrs. Silvey stated that as it is a  remote 'area there is not much opportunity for children to mix and it would be a  good __ng' for 3-5 year olds* >  - The super^riendeht staled that tbe room  is used and 5%e_r old children could attend Madeira^ Park kindergarten.

Water taxis; apart from ferrying  freight, also took care of a number of  travellers and came in for a great deal of  praise for helping out in what could have  proved an extremely difficult situation.

Last time the tug was definitely identified, according to reports given at the  inquest on February 8, J9C7, was at 1:40  p.m. when she was recognized by a Tyco  Airways passenger off Trail Islands, heading towards White Islets. Many shore  observers believed they saw the vessel  lakr than that,  Seymour was spotted by the pilot of a  . West Coast Air Service Beaver at 2:50 p.m.  in the vicinity of White Islets where there  was an oil slick and flotsam from the tug.  He circled the area until the arrival of tho  RCAF helicopter from Comox at 3:50 p.m.  Seymour waved to the plane but despite  ithe courageous rescue by ithe helicopter  crew did not regain consciousness after  being picked up.

Sechelt council held a special meeting  Wednesday morning and moved accordingly. Gibsons held a special meeting  Thursday at which-the resolution by Sechelt commissioners  was  fully supported.  This will probably be the last time  councils will have amy say in school budr  gets. Education Minister Leslie Peterson  has announced a new scheme which, it is  expected, will throw Ml responsibility into the hands of trustees. It is assumed  this will make the board responsible for  its own tax collection. ^  Sechelt chamber meets  provincial president  SECHELT,Chamber of Commerce presid-  I enl, Erich Hensch, advises members a  meeting is planned at the Village Cafe on  Friday.

Times warns public  of possible racket  AS A PUBLIC service The Times this week  warns business people on the Peninsula  to be on the lookout for what bears'all (the  earmarks of the old "skin" game in (the  form of an invoice indicating participation  in some kind of advertising promotion.  This particular invoice bears the heading "White Cane Courier" and carries a  slip assumed to be a tear sheet of an  advertisement but with no indication of the  publication in which it is to be inserted.  Bottom of the invoice carried the phrase  "Support The Works of The Blind" and the  amount the merchant is expected to submit  to a private address in Edmonton is, in this  case, $14.  From The Powell River News, it has  been learned the same invoices have been  circulated to various business people and  in at least once case a .copy has been  handed in to The News>  Publisher Al Alsgard states: "The person involyed was quite unaware of any  such .organization-and, being a new Canadian, unfamiliar with our English' language,  sought .out assistance/'  ,  Mr. Alsgard has , already taken the  matter up with the Better Business Bureau  and has _lso presented the matter to  various newspaper 'organizations' for further investigation  Sadly missed  The late Mary Ellen Paul, pictured  last year after receiving the Pioneer  .Centenrial medallion.

Donatiosi of Activity rocpi  assists Fall Fair project"  SCHOOL Trustees agreed at last week's  meeting to once again donate the Gibsons Elementary School grounds and activity room for ithe annual Sunshine Coast  Fall Fair.  Chairman of the Fall Fair Committee,  Len Wray and Mrs. C. K. Chamberlin had  explained to the board earlier in the meeting, ithat if rental rates of $80 per day had  to be paid for the four days, the fair would  have to be cancelled. They were, also  concerned that bingo is not allowed on  school premises as the bingo proceeds pay  for the prizes. Mr. Wray explained that  the organizer's put in a tremendous amount  of work to do something for the community; also in 1941 when the Women's Institute donated the building to the community,  which is now used as the School Maintenance Shop, it was (understood that facilities  would always be available for the fair.  Trustee Cliff Thorold observed that  special arrangements should be made for  the Fall Fair; every year trustees get into  a debate about it and it is an imposition  that delegates have to beg for the facilities.

Trustees approved Chairman Don Douglas' motion that the Board sees no reason  to waive policy at this time. During the  discussion Mr. Douglas commented that he  objects to receiving phone calls regarding  decisions which he cannot personally, make  but require approval of the whole iboard.  Gibsons 'Rod and Gun Club requested  that /the Board consider reduced rental for ,  Elphinstone auditorium for' the showing of  Wild Life Films. The letter outlined ithe  instruction which the club gives to some ,40  junior members.  Trustee Leo Johnson observed ithat the  same films were shown by the Sechelt Rod  and Gun Club in the Sechelt Theatre with  the co-operation of owner Mr. John Hayes,  Trustee Agnes Labonte commented that the  Gibsons Theatre is used six days a week  so that no free night is available.  Trustees decided to refer the club to the  Board's policy whereby the $8 per hour  community rate would be applicable.  SKATING  Popularity of the skating program has  made it necessary for the organizers to  seek facilities at Pender Harbour and an  extra evening at Elphinstone for adults  only. Trustees gave permission for Pender  Harbour Secondary gymnasium, to be used  every other week for ope night but would  noli grant an extra evening at Elphinstone,  which is used for skating three hours on  Saturday afternoon and two hourm on Tuesday nights.

MLA points io $10.6 million project . > .  mister .Without Portfolio  awson says centre going on  Westminster and Tranquille in Kamloops.  MINISTER without Portfolio Isabel Daw-  eon indicated in the legislature that the  Social Credit government does not intend  to abandon plans for a 500-bed retarded  children's centre on Vancouver Island.  .She said the $10.6 million Glendale {project in Victoria will be one of three large  centres for the retarded SA the province.  Mrs. Dawson, MLA for Mackenzie, said  the ultimate aim, as expressed repeatedly  by' Health Minister Wesley Black, is to  have a series of small units throughout the  province under the policy of decentralization of mental health facilities.  'CONFIRM. FEARS'  But outside the house, Dr. Ray Parkinson, the psychiatrist who represents the  riding of Vancouver-Burrard for the New  democratic Party, said Mrs. Dawson's  statement confirms the worst fears of  retarded children's associations in the  province.  "She announces decentralization of mental health services and then follows with  an outline of what everyone ih the field  has been complaining about," said Parkinson. .      '       ' t  ,He-.said reUrded-children's-associations'  hoped that Bla^k*^* announced policy of  decentralization would- mean a- series of  smaller units around Vancouver Island and  abandonment of the Glendale plans.  Construction of the first phase of the  project already has begun.  "Other large treatment centres for the  retarded are at Woodlands iSchooLin New  HOUSING PROPOSAL  Mrs. Dawson also said in her speeeh  that the cost of architects' services should  be eliminated in building low-cost housing  for elderly citizens.  She said this -would allow more money  for furnishing in these projects.  The minister suggested pre-fabricated  housing might be the answer for this type  of housing.  Mrs. Dawson paid tribute to retiring  Lt.-Gov. George Pearkes, as a great man  loved by all citizens in the province.  She said of ithe lieutenant-governor and  Mrs, Pearkes: "Throughout the length and  breadth of British Columbia and indeed in  Canada as a whole, 'they are not only  admired and respected by the populace,  indeed they are loved."

MODIUM MACMIHB  THIS week the weather has been quite  sunny althou^i -round Elphie it has  been a little damp! Tuesday a plague hit  our school: "squirt-guns", and guess who  started it? The Seniors, the ones who are  fighting for more responsibilities. It was  rumored ithat ���5 of them (squint-guns, that  is) had been confiscated and are being sent  to the Bed Cross, although Vietnam had  been suggested!  Mr. Pete's home room is at it again.  This week a "jack-in" was held at noon  hour. Would you believe a bunch of people  playing jacks??? At lunch hour or practically-every noon hour this week some -unloving students joined Mr. Pete on the front  lawn with a Frisbee.  * With the amount of construction around  the school lately it was hardly a surprise  that theie were a few. blackouts. Friday  ^morning the , bottom ; floor was without  Jj^bts for the first part of the first period.  *p^I3_ielo4he ferry _aixHip^ <��jr teams that  were to travel to Alpha ih North Burnaby  were unable to go. Th^y were to go Jo  Squamish on Saturday.    /.  ��������� Friday afternoon Grade 10 and 11- students were treated to a show at the Twilight  Theatre. The movie "Lord of the Flies"!  is a Grade 11 ;nove_ Next -weekend our  Senior dance is being held with Meddy's  people. The dance begins at 8:30 p.m.  About 6:30 ithere will be !two homecoming  games. All past grads of Elphinstone are  invited to attend and also to attend Ihe  dance following. Refreshments will be  served.  On the first of March the games, scheduled to be held at Alpha, will take place.'  On ithe following -weekend, March 9, Elphie  is holding its Penny Carnival. It will be  from 10 a_n. ito 9 p.m. All sorts of events  are going to be taking place like games,  contests, and a Red Barter Cafe. Every-,  one is invited to attend and help make ithis  project successful.  , This week an incident happening around  our school was brought to our attention, so  we asked the persons involved if they  would like ito view dheir feelings here. We  feel it is important to all students concerned. ,  Here it is:  STEAMING OFF  February J3 was an unlucky day for the  respectable students of Elphinstone Secondary. The students may not know it but  ���their positions were knocked down even  lower ilhan it was previously. The incident  happened in a small coffee shop.  Five students sitting at a table in the  shop were asked if they would not take so  long in the shop so as to make room for the  adults. The others and myself could have  gone along with ithis approach; but I  ���thought -his is the type of insult that teenagers of North America have been subjected to for years. If an adult was subjected  to the same itrcatmcnt ihe uproar would be  heard clear across Gibsons. I suggested  to the person who asked us to leave that  perhaps they would rather have our money  and not our presence? The reply was a  simple "yes".  11 would not be using such a sledge  hammer without reason. Students in this  coffee shop clean the tables and put dhc  used cups in the garbage. Do adults do  this? The students in the coffee shop arc  quiet, well (mannered and clean.  This type of ili-catrncm. Is not only restricted to students. I personally know one  adult who refuses to go dhcrc.  If adults, for ten minutes every day,  would stop knocking teenagers and look at  (themselves,'they would see teenagers arc  a mirror of adults about them.  Ironically I have been attending sd>ool  meetings about 6(udent-adult relationships.  One reason,.that their rrlaUonohip Is poor  is because ihe adult refuses to rccognir-c  lhc teen of today as an individual.  This entire article has been pro-tccn for  one reason. The type of treatment received  in becoming mo��� and more typical. The  moncy-bunKry adult doc* not realize that  over half of the money in North America  Is controlled by the teen.  There is a lot wrong with the younger  generation. But the wrong was caused by  the moulding of' <thc teen try tho second  generation. How can we not have problems  If the adults don't care? It is very obvious  that they dp not  An example is the pool  ���by Rob Boyes ond Marilyn Hopkins  project' or the sports centre, where adult  help is almost non existent. Mr. Bennett's  soccer team flopped because the children  could not afford ferry fare. The result is  inevitable.  Of an average adult population of 1,000,  they cannot raise enough money for a hall.  If a teen group wishes to hold a dance they  must go to the dump in Roberts Creek.  Why must the iteen put up with such shoddy  treatment, are we not individuals with  individual rights as adults?  4his September in existing school facilities,  Jthe time available for publicity is short.  Plebiscite date is March 7, only two weeks  away.  Leslie Brooks, who is adult education  director for the North and West Vancouver  school districts and who has acted as  secretary of the Community College Coordinating Committee since its inception  several years ago, .will speak on the Community College with particular reference  to the need for Sechelt School District to  participate. Cost to taxpayers of this district, why another institution of higher i  Icarinng as necessary and what the curriculum: might be are other topics to be  covered./^.  Mr. Brooks' talk will be followed by a  question and answer period, during which  members of the audience will be free to  direct questions to a panel of local people.  On the panel will be a trustee, the district  superintendent of schools, the principal of  Elphinstone Secondary School, a student, a  teacher, a community leader and the  secretary-treasurer.  Trustees hope that all parents, voters,  teachers and students w_l attend the  meeting, which will be held on Monday,  February 26, in the library at Elphinstone  Secondary School, Gibsons, starting ait  7^30 p.m.  $35,000 rental  SECOND news release by the hoard' of  school tnisteesVdhis week-explains the  reasons for "the use of expensive portable  classrooms, -states why-they are in use,  how they, could have been avoided and the  length of time they .are likely to be conV  tinued.  Are portable units necessary and cam,  their use be avoided? How long must we\  retain them?  We have 10. This year'it will, cost us  over $35,000 to rent them. In one'sense,  this is "money down the drain." But what  are the alternatives? In theory, we COULD  do without these units. The alternative  would be many large classes or double  shifts, or some of both. This is a decision  for the trustees to make. We feel strongly  that these two alternatives should be  avoided if at all possible. Perhaps we are  wrong, hut we think that most parents of  school children would agree with us.  The question has been asked���why not  buy portable classrooms  and own them  ; permanently rather than rent them?   The  answer is simple���wc are not permitted to.  The only way, we can get classrooms is to  put- ithem in a referendum to be approved  by the ratepayers. ' >  ��� This takes time���too .much time. At  Gibsons right now we would-not require  the four portables we are using if we had  been able to move faster on the eight classrooms which the ratepayers approved in  the last referendum. The delays have been  most frustrating to the trustees. The so-  called temporary "freezes" by government  may not be finished with. Although working drawings are now almost completed for  the Gibsons addition, there is no guarantee  that the board will be- permitted to go to  tender. We certainly will not have this  addition ready much before the summer of  _969i Thus we will have to get by for all  or imost of .ithe, school year 196^69 with  present accommodation.  The old four-room building at Gibsons  which! the government agrees should be  dembhshed will have to remain in use for  a feW years to come.

Elsewhere in The Tinies is an from a group of 53 last year from Elphifl-  advertised list bf places at which votes st6rie is sufficient indication that sdrfie-  may be cast. Main importance of this thing is Wrong. One of the arguments for  particular   plebiscite   is   that   eligible a.Regional College is that many students  voters get out and use their vote to good graduate but are unable to make the  advantage.  From our own survey it would appear  the bulk of taxpayers have? gone-; jiist  about as far as they intend to ���%i^a_^ed  and, certainly questionable, educational  facilities.

The "College" will provide two years  after Grade 12 graduation. During this  time they have the Opportunity to attain  university standards.  This-is all fine except for one little  detail If the Regional College is expected to bring them up to standard, it is  logical to assume.they are not getting an  adequate education here.

The  Commission emphasized r that individuals  and families will have itp/assume the responsibility of caring for-"themselves in all  but cases of serious illness.  In addition, Emergency Health Service has stated that in'case of disaster, one  person in every home, proficient in Home  Nursing, is an absolute necessity.

Miss Margaret M\ Hunter Reg. N., Chief  Nursing Officer for St. 'John Ambulance,  Says the Association is more concerned  about patient tare in the home today than  ever before.  "Although new hospitals are being  built," she says, "there are still not enough to meet the needs of our population.  sing courses, it tells the homemaker^ hew  to do everything from preparing an ice  pack to coping with emergency childbirth.  It is filled with simple procedures that  make caring for an invalid at home easier  fdr both the patient and the homemakcir.  For example, did you know that pills  for small children should be crushed between two spoons?���that beds in the home  cause discomfort to both patient and  homemaker because they're too low and  that raising the i bed jUst a few inches with  wooden blocks or tin cans.'filled with sand  will make a big difference in convenience  and comfort?���,that a simple, cardboard  cradle made from a box with'two sides  removed will protect the patient from bedding which can weigh very heavily en the  feet after a few days?  The manual is available to the general  public through local St. John branches, but  Miss Hunter emphasizes that it is meant  to supplement, not supplant the Home Nursing course.      r  A St. John Home Nursing course takes  two hours a week for eight weeks. It helps  a mother protect herself and her family  against accidents; teaches her to recognize early signs of illness; shows how to  prevent the spread of infection, and teaches her simple nursing skills.  , Miss Hunter points out ithat there are  "very good personal' reasons why young  mothers and homemakers should have a  knowledge' of home nursing skills*':' She I  adds, ''Many patients, particularly' children and older people, seem to respond  more readily to care in their own beds."

The population in  British Columbia has increased by 23%  since i960 while the rest of Canada increased 13%. The population for Canada by  1980 is 25,110,000 persons and by this, our  British Columbia population should be  about 3 million by the same date, 1980. The  labor force should increase by 64% to VA  million persons.  The total Budget estimated is $866,712,-  000, which includes ferry receipts, which is  an overall increase of $126,640,000, and allowing for the transfer of the B.C. Ferry  Authority to the Department of Highways,  a net total of $105,790,000 (transfer is $20,-  850.000).  ONE THIRD EDUCATION  In the fiscal year, the Department of  Education will spend $275,053,000 or almost one-third of the total Provincial Budget and 40 million more than in the current  year.  The Department of Health and Hospital  Insurance accounts for $168,401,000 and the  Social Welfare Department $75,277,000. The  above three Departments, will take up  61.5% of this large Budget. The current  welfare cost sharing formula with municipalities to pay. 10%, will be altered to 20%  sharing by local authorities similar to the  sharing programme of other Provinces.  The additional cost to local administration is $5,550,000 and the special contribution for highways within municipalities of  $650,000 will be eliminated. However, to  Offset this, the Provincial Government' .yr3L  increase "local government per capita grant  payments to a straight $25 per capita. The  increased grant payment will cost the government $11,700,000, and (thus a net gain to  municipalities of 5V. million dollars.  ; 4V. million is noted for adjustments of  civil servants salaries.  HOMEOWNERS GRANT  The $120 Homeowner's Grant is increased to $130, and the ��� Home Acquisition  Grant will be nicreased to $1,000 for the  construction of new homes. The grants for  senior citizens nonprofit homes has been  more than doubled from' $1,200,000 to 2%  million. For public low cost housing tbe  Provincial Share has also been doubled  from 2% million to 5 million. For these  four above facets of housing assistance, the  total additional grants are $17,300,000.  Record levels in personal income, mineral production and export trade contributed to the success of the year. Increased  investment in Jrydro electric development  projects and __tsural gas lines offset, to a  great7.e_l_^,."1J_e decreases in forest products plant capital expenditures last year.  The port of Vancouver^ was the busiest in  . Canada, handling over 23 million tons of  cargo, ;J967/68 was another record tourist  year in all parts of the Province. No general tax increases are proposed for our  citizens, but certain adjustments will be  made in rates applied to industries utilizing the Province's natural resources and  legislation will be recommended to the  Mining Tax and Logging Tax Acts.  EDUCATION   FOREMOST  Knowing tbat education has been foremost in the minds of many in my riding,  a few points that are of interest to all.  Elementary and secondary schools will account for $131,750,000, and with the Homeowners Grant, bring this to a total of $127,-  700,000, an increase of almost 19 million.  Universities will get $73,695,000 and Provincial technical ond- vocational schools  $12,976,000. Technical and vocational school  capital expenditure accounts tor 1{J million  and adult education $682,000. Total Education grants is $275,053,000. 'University  operating grants are increased 8 million)  and capital grants are up 4 million. The  total increases of $12 million in University  grants to a total of 65 million, represents  a single year increase of 22.5%.  SUMMARY  I have attempted to give you, my reader, a summary of the main points of interest in the Budget Speech. As stated by  tlie Prime Minister, we can all look back  with pride on the accomplishments of this  Province during the past lG years, but  much has yet to bo done to aitain full utilization of our resources, We must not be,  complacent with our auccesw but press forward on all fronts, from greatness to greatness, for the benefit of not only the ore-  , sent, but all future generations. With the  full  co-operation  of  all our citizens  and  | with the dynamic policies of this Government, British Columbia's future is bright  indeed,'  will  probably never understand how! bitterly  disappointed I am with you.  How could a school that started out so  clean and healthy a few short years ago  have reached what appears to be the beginnings of a Blackboard Jungle?  'to life imprisonment. Had _hey been 'taught'  to m-id. their own business _iey could each  Jbe living a useful, free life [today. These,  ���boys had been brought up in so-called  '*���ood" homes and had been accustomed'to  many social advantages. Yet 'they had  "never been, taught-that "differences" .are  only meaningful or cause for alarm when  they are' a, serious threat or' harmful -to  'someone else.,   i<  ,  J am acquainted with some of jthe 'boys  who felt they'were entitled to make rules  for their contemporaries.' Troey also are  well brought up. In some cases their  families have worked hard and long for the  betterment bf ithe community. .Strong religious training has been the way of life.  Assuming, then, that their parents have  been teaching them to respect the rights  of others, who within your portals has been  undermining, ithe parental advice and direction? Did these boys 'think a little apple  polishing, or to be more vulgar, boo_icl_ng,  might in fact, improve their own image?  One certainly wonders.  I repeat, you are a sick school.

Rates for facilities are charged  HOLIDAY.IN SOUTH ���'*:/"/        '  Mr., and Mrs. Cecil Gordon arrived back  in Sechelt. on "Wednesday night after a two  week holiday in the south. They motored  sputh with Mrs. Gordon's parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Jim Parker. They spent three days  in Los Vegas, Nevada and while (there,  saw Danny Kaye in person, as well as'  other entertainers. From there the four  ���motored to Yuma, Arizona; Mexicali,  Mexico; and on to Palm Springs for six  days. Mr. and Mrs. Gordon flew back to  Vancouver Wednesday evening.' It was a  ^three-hour trip by Western Airways and  they were home in Sechelt that same  evening. Mr. and Mrs. J. Parker' will  motor back later this month.  VALENTINE DANCE  The Lions' Valentine dance on Saturday,  February 10 proved a success. Tbe Legion  Hall was decorated by the ladies of the  Lions. Many hours were put into making  the motifs which were on a Valentine  theme.  Tickets were sold on a raffle of two  large valentine-shaped boxes of chocolates  and an amusement game, Mrs. Don Laurie  won one box of chocolates and Mrs. Joe  Benner won the game.  The chairman of the dance committee  was George Eberle. Master-of-ceremonies  was Neil Campbell. Music was provided  by the Rhythm Ramblers. Approximately  one hundred and sixty people attended tbe  dance and enjoyed the evening. Guy winning of Ole's Cove catered for the supper.  OCEAN VOYAGE  Ben Lang returned on February 11 after  a 17-day-trip to Hawaii. He flew to San  Francisco via Western Airlines and boarded  the Matsons Company's liner the S.S.

That saner heads  prevailed is a miracle! The fact that any  one student could be singled out for special  "treatment" by a group who somehow had  been led to believe they were acting for  the benefit of t_e school is really frightening.  I understand (that some of the staff who  publicly profess to teach and believe in the  freedoms of democracy thought this little  act of harberihg should be treated as a  joke. It was suggested that if all the boys  at the school would wear conventional haircuts it would.; vastly improve the school  morale and. public image*  This violatirm of bask civUvrights would  be a great ^joke^ And an old, well-tried  one at that. -After all, it was just this same  kind of joke that caused (thousands, of; Jews  to laugh themselves io "death iin the gas  chambers of Germany a few short years  ago. They too looked different, and so of  course, were robbed of the ultimate human  right!.  .      , '.���.....-'.....--���...���.-',:.".;-!  .,".-.,   .: -  Yes Elphinstone, you, certainly have  changed. Are you realty jsb sick as to ithink  that a student's style of hair or dress is  what creates the image of a school? Have  you forgotten that it is your students' consideration of one another and scholastic  achievements that causes your community  ;to be proud of you? Who amongst your  ' teaching staff could possibly have permitted your senior boys- 'to think their  vigilante game could;'be played?  In 'this school dii^ici we pay for the  services of a special,counsellor.: Has sthis  rrjan been called upon to deal with the boys  involved? What is his opinion of .'this sort  of thing?

Voters are asked to approve the establishment of a college. At any time in the  future, should the enrolment outgrow the  high school, a money ^bylaw would be put  to the voters. They would have the opportunity to support or reject this bylaw, and,  full costs for a new college wouhi be set  out on the ballot  Why was it necessary to have a vote  at this time. Why not wait until the  municipal elections in December and save  this extra expense?  The college to serve,, the, four school  districts on the North Shore of Burrard  Inlet has been under study 'by an interim  college committee for three years.  - First a study was commissioned showing, the need.   With that established, the  Vancouver and Howe Sound support it?  Sechelt students would have no claim  on the college. The students from the 'vote  majority' areas would be served first and  at the $106 per semester, or $200 for full  term of. two semesters, fee.

PHONE  PROBLEMS  One lady in this area who recently had  ' a telephone installed thinking it would save  ber time and much xiu___g around,  is  sadly   disiflusioned.   She  spent  the  best  part of one day trying to ring a neighbor  but always got ithe busy signal. Tit; turned  out the neighbor was on * her'"Own' party",  line and therefore she needed to go fcrough  a special procedure to ring her.������ Procedure is clearly ou__.ed in the telephone dir-  .ectpry, but what's the use of'flus htforkha--  tion if you dp not know who is on" your  ���party line. This is information the B.C. Telephone Gmipany treats as secret and confidential.  In a community as small as this, when  one has no hestitation in calling on any  neighbor in cases of emergency,... this is  surely essem_al information.  ' In these days when scientists and engineers have landed guided spacecraft on  the moon and on Venus ��nd are even talking of landing a man On the moon, it is  extraordinary that a telephone company  cannot think jap a method of indicating to  callers by a clear signal or recording  whenever a line'is out of order. This would  avoid a repetition of a case last December  when a local subscriber did not receive  news of the death of her husband in .a  Vancouver hospital until two days later.  Though her line had been down for sev  er an engaged signal and may consequently have no imdicaton that he should use  some other method of getting in touch with  the subscriber.  c  SECRET COVE  Secret Cove area has lost two of its  long time residents with ithe death of Ralph  Grover on December 18 and Tom Sinclair,  February 10.. Both were well known in the  district, having fished the gulf for many  years. Mr. Grover resded at Secret Cove  for 23 years. Mr. Sinclair was a resident  for 40 years.  Squaringly Yours  ���by Maurice Hemstreet  LAST Saturday night at the Hopkins Hall  the Gibsons Squarenaders held their  ninth Valentine's Anniversary dance with  caller Harry Robertson at the microphone.  More than three sets of square dancers  were present. It was without a doubt the  best square dance anniversary I have ever attended. I  Of hand there are many good factors  that make a good square dance evening.  Mainly they are the necessary rules of the  square dance world. On this particular evening all rules were regarded with the highest respect The friendship, gaiety,  lack  of what is commonly known as a "click"  in a club, and <the laughter and comments  . alone were all that was needed to ensure  a caller with a successful night to mark  down with Ms past victories. Here is hop-  ���ing the next nine ah_flvereari.es  will be  -��� jus*as������great. ���<-������ -.r  t Here, are a few dates from the past,  when just as good a?time was had. One  . was on. May % 1964 whenthe Sechelt Pro-  menaders joined the) Gibsons Squarenaders at the Hopkins Ha_-for a wonderful  night of square dicing; Gns July 18, 1964  all square dancers met ait' the &.A- lot ih  Sechelt and held an open air square dance  with a return visit to the Hopli_rjs HalL  Then came ithe!'square dancepicnic "at the  Roberts Creek Park Aug. 16, 1964 where,'  with picnic lunches and cranky kids, a  good time was had because It was a square  . dance get together with Mends. ;  Now with these past dates^__,in my  memory, the main idea is to bring to your  mind the coming St. Patrick's Jamboree  ait Roberts Creek Hall March 16 wiih. free  coffee and so on. Prices are slashed to  98c egr head. Bring your own, lunch. We  need*_f_x)iimatidn as to billets and transportation needed from .the ferry to the dance.
