Tughoat Owner- Association Has be Spared to'purchase several of the  approached M.P.Jack Davis seekfog bis  - assistant in a bid to persuade the Miiuster  of Public 'Works "to give coosideratiob to  constnictott of a breakwater between the  Islands.   The Association points out that  - already one Island has been acquired by  American interests and three others recently advertised for sale in the Vancouver  press.       1  It is feared that acquisition and develop-  meat of the remaining Islands by private  interests could well rob the tug operators  of the only possible shelter between the  Howe Sound and Halfrnoon Bay. At present  the Islands provide only partial shelter fox  a limited number of tugs and their tows.  Losses in one year, including mainly  logs, could reach $1,000,000. Some of these  logs are recovered but at considerable expense. Others constitute a hazard to vessels or clutter beaches along the coast.  Discussing the same problem in 1956,  the" Government indicated that such a  project couM be considered only on the  basis of the companies concerned bearing  at least 60 percent of the cost of a breakwater installation. Cost at that time was  estimated at $700,000. However, there are  alternatives available today such as floating breakwater, or caissons, worthy of  consideration.  Dr. Davis has already acted on behalf  of the Tugboat Owners Association and in  a letter to Hon. George Mcllraith, Minister  of Public Works, pointing out that the  Department did offer to pay half the cost  in 1956 and that, should this same situation  exist, coat would n$t be too much out of  line with other Federal investments made  to protect or to provide greater access to  new industrial developments on Canada's  east and west coasts.  Mr. Davis stated:  Recently I understand that three Trail  Islands have been put up for sale. A  fourth has already been sold to a group of  U.S. industrialists. In view of these developments, and 'because their development for sumer houses could preclude tne  use of the Trail Islands as a shelter for log  booms and other tows at times when storms  are at itheir height, I think a careful study  of their ultimate use "for navigation and  other purposes should be made at this  time.  Could you therefore' please have someone in your department look carefully into  this matter with a view to making recommendations as to:  (a) whether the development of the  Trail Islands should be considered in any  way with a view to ensuring their use for  navigation,-protective and other purposes;  '*���*___�� -"  West Canadian Graphic Iadustri-sJ-td.#  Trail Islands.

Police were called together with local  skin diver R. White who succeeded in bringing to the surface the body of Norman  West of Irvines Landing.  West, aged 39,, married with three children was apparently driving home from  Garden Bay when his Volkswagen left the  highway and dived into the lake. His auto  was recovered the following morning.  Police report an enquiry will be held.  Successful auction  hetos Arts Council  A HAPPY crowd turned out to the Arts  Council Auction Sale on Saturday at the  Wilson Creek Community Hall. Mr. Benner,  the auctioneer, had everyone laughing ^ond  enjoying themselves while a remarkable  variety of treasures quickly found new  owners.  A sculpture, described tongue in cheek  by its creator as a paperweight for holding  down taxes, was coveted by an eager four-  year-old, catching a whole quarter fortune.  Everyone unselfishly refrained from bidding  against him and be was, with help, able  to carry his bargain home.

A. C. Bennett,urging a speedy termination of the B.C. Ferry tie-up.  Both Chambers expressed extreme cone  cern pointing out that economy of the Sun-  ihine Coast lies in jeopardy while the  rtrike lasts. Considerable disgust has been  expressed that a great deal of publicity  lias been given the fact that smaller Islands have suffered hardship, yet it is noted that while Powell River is still serviced  by Highways Department Ferry service,  and Vancouver Island 'has the Canadian  Pacific ferry in operation, here on the  d    a   ���    \uu 1 " " Peninsula we are entirely dependent upon  Pender s Whale small water taxis.

It has now been transferred to a herring pond and on Sunday morning, trainer  of Skana, the Vancouver Aquarium whale,  arrived to take over the taming of the 15-  foot whale, which has already been named "Pender" by local residents.  Cecil Reid Jr., who led the capture,  states the whale will require 150-170 pounds  of locally-caught big gill net herring each  day, which is going to keep somebody  busy. There are herring in the pond and  it is believed that the whale was feeding  on Sunday.  Crowds of people have been visiting  Garden Bay to see the whale and there  is no doubt it is just about the most exciting thing to happen in this picturesque  at this time of  resort, usually deserted  the year.

General opinion was that sympathy for  the ferry workers is cooling somewhat, at  the same time the situation has been  known to tSoe government for a considerable time and strong views were expressed at tbe inability of the authority to  have settled the grievances long before  a strike became imminent.  fe��eis��Eti��Bi  SECHELT Rod and Gun Club held its first  annual presentation of tbe Gus Crucil  Memorial Trophy Saturday, February 17.  Presentation was made during an evening  of entertainment which included a dance  party.  First recipient of the award was Harry  Batchelor of Selma Park who qualified by  reason of his achievements to the cause of  recreation over the past year. The trophy  is perpetual but Mr. Batchelor gets a small  replica which he keeps, together with a  "Sportsman of the Year" crest.  The club has been operating a successful training program for young sportsmen  involving instruction and safety with fire  arms.

Comm. Thompson heatedly, argued that  taining net is being specially made in Vancouver. Bert Gooldrup is making a frame  for it so that Pender can live in comfort  in natural surroundings while being trained. He confirmed the Vancouver Aquarium  purchased the whale for $5,000, stating the  fishermen did not want to make a profit  as.'long as their time was covered and  Vancouver has a local whale. :   '  , ;.

Peterson, mlnieilcr of cducaUon  during bis recent address on education to  the 1/cglslaturc. ,  School Boards are being asked to plan  practical buildings and avoid design features which suggest lavifihneiss, The me  ot pre-bullt component and e'andar'di/.ed  materials imunt lake precedence over any  concept of cuMomlring a school.  The MiinMer gave examples of navinRK  made In venlous school districts. In Cran-  brook, tender for an elementary school of  conventional dcwlun and construction wan  $141,000. The prc-bulH version, larger by  700 square (oU cost $117,000 representing  a saving of $C per ��quare foot.  School Boards were advised to exercise  discretion as estimates indicate that 6"av-  infia can be made. In Victoria a five room  addition, plus lange activity room was estimated *t $400,000 wink at tlie *>ame time.  in Fort Nelson, a Ctam contracted (or an,  eight room addition, plus library, activity  room and administrative area for $376,000.  Mr. Peterson further ��� stated that his  department Is becoming more convinced of  the need ito standardize components and  'eventually move In the direction of modular  co-ordination  and  pre-bullt componenl-s.  SCHOOL  FACILITIES  A coiinimilttcc to study the use of ischool  facilities ha�� been formed. It. ���will study  a possible alternative organization pattern  which might increase utilization of school  facilities such as: a quarter .ycilom; a semester syistcm; dual ��hift ��ysteim; collcfie-  typo timetabling system in any or all of  the various types ot public ischools.

J'arent-Teaeher Fed-  citation .od Mr. Peter I'owedl, nominee of  the B.C. School Trustees' Association.  Lange agreed, noting the .more facts and  figures council might acquire, the better,  and that at would be a retrograde step to  let the mailter\l drop.  It was therefore moved tlie health unit  engineering branch should be contacted  in order to find out what services are actually' available.  BUILDING INSPECTOR  Following request by council for information from the Regional Board regarding use of the services of the Regional  Board building inspector, a reply indicated  such a service could be arranged by agreement. On behalf of the board, Clerk Char-  . les Gooding suggested an annual lump sum  with all building permit fees.  Chairman Swain suggested the matter  be tabled and argued that council could  obtain the services of a qualified man and  pay him for his services. Comm. Thompson disagreed and cast the view that to discard tlie Regional Board inspector would  be "going back".  The chairman explained It was not in-  1 tended the matter be dropped. "Simply  find out Just how much they propose to  charge u~ annually first," he isald. Building chairman,'Comm, Chuck Rodway agreed the costs should be checked on first,  but &ad ho felt council should, obtain the  cervices of a capable inspector,  Further discussion as to the amount  council might consider as an annual lump  mm resulted in (the suggestion that Comm.  de Lange discus, the matter at Uie next  meeting of the Regional Board, Friday,  February 23.  f  Harvey Hubbs elected  president of Centre  SELMA Park Community Centre held its  annual meeting on Tuesday, February  20 when election of officers took (dace,  The current slate was re-elected with the  addition of A.

EXPLAINING the purpose of the proposed  new highway from Langdale Ferry  Terminal to a point on the present highway  101, planning officer B. S. Jawanda of (he  Department of Municipal Affairs told the  Regional Board that it would definitely not  be a section of a' through highway to Earl's  Cove but strictly a bypass of the buihVup  Gibsons area.  Mr. Jawanda further stated that no decision had yet -been reached but three  alternatives are being considered; one  cutting' across school - property and the  Brothers Memorial Park; another following Reid Road and a third following Cemetery Road.  The Planning Officer stated. a personal  preference for the road cutting'through the  park, stating that the School Board appeared to be satisfied and suggesting that the  Shirks costs share  Indian Council  osingfire protection  FAILURE   by   Ithe   Sechelt   Indian   Band loss of life and property.      ...

A spokesman for the Fire District told  The Times tins week "we have bent over  backwards in an endeavor to encourage the  Band to contribute its fair share toward  upkeep and operation of the service but  despite the fact that most of the fires we  attend are actually on the reserve they  will not agree to an Increase. It is therefore with extreme reluctance that we have  no alternative but to take away the service  and protection."  , Sechelt Village with a population of  about 500 pays in the region of $4,000, tbe  Reserve with a near equal population has  been contributing $2T>0 but refuses to pay  the $500 asked by the Fire District. Letters  have been sent to the Department of Indian  Affairs but it seems apparent that onus  rests strictly with the local Band.  Following such representations to the  Department, G. f. Gallagher of the Fraser  Indian Agency has 'written to the Band  Council Chief, Theodore Joe reminding him  that tbe Department has previously approached him and the Council on various  occasions within the past six1 months about  obtaining fire protection for the Village,  Mr. Gallagher stated, "You have been  advised by the Sechelt Fire Protection  District and by tbla office that the Fire  District _.sk�� for a fee of $MW per year do  supply services. ,  "You, the Council I and the ^ Secretary  have taken a stand on this and Mate that  you are not.going to pay this amount.  "We are not, aware that you have ever  a|>i>rbached the District io talk this over,  but you are aware that as of 12.01 a.m.  March 1, 1908 you will be without fire  protection from tlie District.  "We ask that you t_knt a good look at  this and asfcc&B tho situation In tho light of  School Board and "Park 'Authority, combine  playing field facilities.  Apparently there has been vociferous  outcry from Reid Road residents concerning the Reid Road cut off. Mr. Jawanda  personally did not consider the high cost  of building a" road along the B.C. Hydro  power lines, warranted at this time, furthermore he did not appear to favour hew  roads, being built too far, from existing  highways. .   '...,/..',':'' ''"''. .'',./ ���  Director Gilker, stated that he considered Cemetery Road continuing along the  power line would be the logical route and  would not be bisecting roads as the one  favoured by Mr; Jawanda would do.  ' The new bypass would have restricted  acess which directors pointed out would  necessitate an access road for houses along  the route.  PLANNING  Secretary Charles .Gooding stated in his  report to the board that Department of  Lands inspectors have discussed the problems of handling applications for lease or  Kurchase of large lots adjacent to existing  uilt up areas. There is a problem here,  states the report, which would be solved by  early introduction of a subdivision control  bylaw. .,  Discussion with Mr. Jawanda indicated  that .there is concern regarding land which  should be held for park or school purposes  and if not held may result in municipal  bodies having to pay high prices for such  lands in the future.  Welcome project . . .  Cable Vision installation  granted council's go-ahead  GIRSONS-Counejl bf Gibsons at its regular meeting February 20 welcomed the  possibility of Cable Vision installation in  the area as pro]>osed by Northwest Communications Ltd.  Clerk Dave Johnston told members lie  first received _n application from the company for a trades licence as _ preliminary  to commencement of commercial surveys  and actual construction work. Following- a  request by Johnston for more Information,  the company replied stating tiiat coaxial  cables and equipment such as amplifiers,  directional couplers and tap-off devices  are erected on and attached to tlie poles  and cables of the B.C. Tclcplwne Company throughout the companies service  area.

I  CLEAN-UP  Commissioner Wally Peterson reported great stride, have been made by tho  owner of the Seaside Plaza to carry out  necessary Improvement, to the building.  Complaints by a resident regarding adjacent properties, which she claimed wero  unsightly, have been dealt with.  "However, on investigating the prop-  pcrties involved, I notice tlie property of  tihe complainant is in worse condition than  the one ��he complained about," lie paid.

Councils' register protests;,,  write Education Department  FOLLOWING, reluctant decision by both  village councils. to accept. tbe School  District budget for 1968, both approved  last week a letter to the Minister of Education drafted oy Gibsons \V21age clerk Dave  Johnston. Both councils expressed the view  that it clearly indicates their feeling, regarding the budget situation.  Letter states:  The Councils of this Village and tbe  Village of Sechelt have just accepted tihe  1988 (expenditure budget of School District  No. 45 (Sechelt) with considerable reluctance.  The purpose in writing to you is to  protest the position in which our municipalities are placed by the statutory provision requiring acceptance or arbitration, in  a matter of three weeks, before the effect  of current legislation on the same budget  is known.  In School District No. 46 (Sechelt), almost 91 percent of the school budget is  raised in the unorganized territory, with  something like 60 percent of this, we are  told, being on the only industrial concern,  a pulp milL The remainder is levied on  Gibsons Village 5.5 percent, and Sechelt  Village 3.5 percent.  If the Councils are of ^e opinion ithat  .there could be a reduction in the budget,  without affecting the quality' of [education,  they are faced with the following facts:  (a) That the budget has already received preliminary acceptance by the'unorganized area representatives who are  holding office on the' School' Board and  represent.the 91 percent  (b) That on any arbitration of the budget  they will receive credit for only 9 percent  of such reduction, the remaining 91 percent  going to the unorganized area.   1 ���  (c) That the expense of undertaking  arbitration would not be shared by the  unorganized 91 percent but would be the  sole responsibility of the municipalities.  With both Councils concerned with directing their energies and funds to urgent  basic needs, such as water and sewers,  they are. virtually precluded from going to  arbitration by the considerable odds against  them.  With such a background, a school district need not be too concerned about  municipal approval or arbitration. In fact  we are not aware of any other agency that  presents a budget for approval without first  having some estimate of what revenues  and grants may be forthcoming in .order  that a local cost may be Indicated.  ���> Both Councils hope ihat your reported  announcement proposing to remove approval responsibility from municipalities,  and to provide for a revision of hudgetting  (Procedures with a direct responsibility by  the School Board to the ratepayers, will be  affective..

Phono  KELLY'S GARBAGE COLLECTION  886-2283  Langdale to Roberts Creek  including Gower Point  THE LIBERAL CIRCUS  OTTAWA-"1!-., noisy gathering of Western  liberals in ���wirmipeg at the weekend of  Jan.. 21 marked ihe turning point in the  campaign to elect Canada's 15to Prime  Minister in 100 years.  From now until the last ballot is counted  in Ottawa's new Civic Centre in the late  afternoon ox evening of April 6, t_e conn- j  try will be caught up in a furious contest  for its biggest political prize.  Within a few days, all itihe candidate.  for Mr. Pearson's dual office as party  leader and Prime Minister will nave  shrugged off their unbecoming shyness and  declared themselves openly.  As matters stand, at least eight of the  possible 10 runners will be men who  served, and indeed still serve in the Pearson cabinet. They Avail be under a severe  strain to carry on their ministerial responsibilities and campaign across the  country at the same time.  They will also be subject to. the greatest  temptation .to declare their differences on  current government policy as well as the  direction in which they would head the  par^y and the country";;H elected.  , Already several ministers have admitted  to differing views on the question of Medicare, a matter on which Parliament has  long since passed judgment, and which it  wiM be difficult to reverse.  Transport Mn__ter Hellyer was the first  among the cabinet men to indicate reasons  why Medicare should perhaps be deferred  once more���although be did not actually  call for deferral.  No doubt these reasons, shared by an  increasing number of people, are being  looked at by the cabinet now as it once  again reconsiders Medicare timing in the  light of the concern of most provinces and  the Canadian financial and balance of pay-  .meats position.  Bis view is shared hy Eric Kierans,  whose role as an outsider���a former  Quebec Provincial Minister, but never a  member of the House of Commons���enables him to speak out without inhibition,  A few days after Mr. Hellyer indicated  his feelings, Trade Minister Winters announced he would not participate in the  leadership race and made noises about  fiscal integrity while calling for going  ahead with Medicare on time.  Although he didn't name names, it was  obvious enough that be was referring to  Finance Minister Sharp and his predecessor  in that portfolio, Privy Council President  Walter Gofdpn. They were the men���the  only men���to be held directly responsible  for the mounting hiidgei deficits of the  Liberal Government since it took office in  1363.  But Mr. Winters too, like Mr. Hellyer  and other cabinet leadership candidates  'must bear fringe responsibility for the  economic situation these unbalanced budgets have created. And if any seriously  disapproved of what was going on, their,  duty was to resign. '  ��� But while the public is entitled to  assume that by staying in the Government  they accepted these policies, this does not  necessarily mean those were the policies  they themselves would have followed if  they had been the Prime Minister or the  particular Minister concerned.  The'possibility of an open split in the  cabinet On key policy must be worrying to  Prime Minister Pearson, who has to bear  the load of governing #he\ country for another 2V_ months while his team players  squabble over which one will succeed him.  But Mr! Pearson really has no one to  blame for the situation but himself:  . He chose, alter all, his method of departing, and the timing was his own as  well.  He complicated matters further by declining to offer," any guidance, either privately or publicly, as to his personal choice  for a successor.  . The only clues that could be drawn from  his timing and method of resigning were  that they indicated personal disapproval of  'his one-time rival Paul Martin, who has  been actively seeking the top post for more  years than Mr. Pearson himself has serve,  in the Commons.  It's a good bet, in fact, that the Prime  Minister would prefer to see Justice Minister Trudeau take over. But he may have  doubts���as Mr. Trudeau himself may,have  doubts���that he can win. Consequently he  will leave it up to the convention itself to  decide.  This is perfectly valid reasoning, but  it makes it more difficult for the candidates  to avoid'open scrapping that reflects no  credit on the government as it exists.  Some Observers have suggested that the  campaign might be made more "honest" if  the contenders were to resign weir portfolios until the issue is decided.  But this Idea is rather- impractical since  it would mean that other inexperienced  men would have to take over, and do  double duty if they already occupy other  portfolios in the Pearson administration.  The best answer seems to be that all  the Minister-candidates will 1 have to carry  on in their jobs, saving their campaigning  for evenings and weekends when Ihey can  get away from the office.  It's not an Ideal arrangement, particularly isln'cc Parliament will bo sitting  through most of the campaign period. But  Mr. Pearson, as a gesture'to bolster government efficiency as well as case W10  task of the candidates, might well seek  opposition co-oporation In calling an early  recess.   ' ���   ���        I ��� |  Conservative leader Robert Stanfleld  has already indicated lie would not j oppose  such a proposal. The Tories were able to  sort out .their problems during a (similar  recess last year, and should li^vc no objection to the Liberals following the same  course.  WHATEVER the weather, seed catalogues  are standard reading at this tame. The  seedsmen whom I Savor with my order���  and it is good business for both buyer and  seller to order early���have always been  first in the field in pursuit of the gardener's  nimble dollar and this time they beat their  own record, < for the New Year's number  came to band before we had rung out the  old year.  But, it is good to look through, for  every year brings something new and  tempting or something old that has been  "greatly improved"���according to advertisement.  The first item that struck my eye���  and it bit hard���was the offering of seed  of a Sweet-pea described as "deep Primrose" in color. Even allowing a little discount for enthusiasm I had difficulty in  swallowing that one for there has never yet  been a true yellow in that family. But  plant specialists work steadily crossing  and re-crossing to obtain something new,  so I took the bait and sent the order and  a growing tost will do the rest.  Those specialists have a most potent  weapon to use on a poor plant today and  at a time when we hear so much about  drugs,   it  is  one  called  colchicine   that  seems able to alter the very nature of a  plant By reading I find that it affects the  number of ^chromosomes in the  plant���  which makes me no wiser than I was before! One can only suppose that the chromosomes  are essential to  the life of the  plant and that when their_n-mber is altered it is likely to  monstrosities of vario^  chance of something useful a;  Colchicine was useful lately  ing the new food grain named  which  is a  hybrid formed  by  crossing  wheat and rye. Hybrids are usually sterile,  like the mule they have no pride of <. ancestry and no hope of posterity, but among  the many attempts in this case one specimen of Triticale proved to be able to reproduce and since it is above average both  in protein content and weight of crop the  hope is that it will be a useful weapon in  the world's war tagainst hunger. At present  it is still in the field-testing stage and not  yet available for general distribution. The  name, is -pronounced Tri-te-cay-leai.  Natural mutations in plants are rare  rather than common, but (hey do occur  and nature works more gently than the  plant wizards, using bees, other insects or  wind to make the cross. La some eases  the soil and what it contains will- effect  the color of flowers, one well-known instance being that of the Hydrangea, which  can be blue or pink as the gardener  chooses.  For years past there has been a sweet  pea of a pleasng mid-tint blue in our collection of the floribunda type and its seeds  have been saved with those of its companions of summer. Last year a much  darker blue appeared on one plant only  and was promptly marked. This year will  prove whether it was just a "sport" or  whether it was a true mutation tbat will  carry on yearj after year. There is always something to try for, a true-blue  carnation is yet to be produced, though  sometimes nature comes most tantalizing-  ly close to it���as though aware that a certain old "has-been" is more than a little  keen on blue flowers. A satisfactory blue  rose is also the object of much trying a-  mong dedicated rosarians and in that case  too some near hits have been scored.  It is just as well to be on the watch for  mutations; last year the great Burpee firm  seedsmen was offering $10,000 for one  xigold plant that was producing' pure  ite flowers, and probably the offer wiH  be open this year. A pale but very  pleasing lemon yellow was the best we  could do���but hope springs eternal! Some  xot the ways in which fertilization is achieved would give anyone food for thought.  The night-flowering desert plant, Yucca is visited by swarms of flying and crawling insects, but only the moth Pronubas  can do the trick and ensure that there  will be more yuccas���and more Pronubas,  since she serves her own purpose too.

March 8 the adults of ^_r school  ct will be voting on a referendum to  (>le the students from Pender and El-  to attend a Regional College in  Vancouver, which is hoped to be  opened in September. On Thursday after-  non a representative from (the College  gave rour grade eleven and twelve students  a talk on the advantages of a college of this  nature. We hope that this referendum goes  through, as it would be to the advantage  of the students in Industrial and Clerical  programmes.  Another assembly was held on Friday,  at which the entire school witnessed the  presentation of Centennial Athle_c\ Awards.  Then the cheerleaders gave us a "pep  rally." where they displayed their cheers  and got some participation from the student body.  A bit of fun was stirred up when Mr.  Peterson arrived to find one of the double  doors to his room had been removed. In  humor, every-one pretended they didn't  notice, and instead of walking through the  empty space, they casually opened the remaining door and walked in.  r>ue to unforseen circumstancs our basketball teams were unable to travel last  weekend and, the games were re-scheduled  to a later date.  Friday night our senior boys played a  few of our past grads. Our past "greats"  ���by Rob Boyes ond Marilyn Hopkins  showed our boys that age doesn't mean aU  that much and defeated Elphie. Although  at one time they seemed to think it was  alright to play 6 against 5! This event  preceded bur Valentine's Dance. A few  of our students worked hard and came up  with a great light show which equally  matched the sound of "Meddys People.*'  A very good turn out result��^ in everyone  having a groovy time.  We'd also like _to remind everyone of  the Penny Carnival coming up.  Note: Re Readers' Right entitled  "Blackboard Jungle". Is it fair that one  canbe so narrow-minded that they judge  an entire school on the -actions of a few  students. Could it be that it's not the School  that's sick?

After all, people should think of others.,  Si%|.pS  SERVICE  PHONE 086-9662  concern  Editor, Tbe Times  Sir���In the February 14 Peninsula Times,  Mr." Douglas, S. B. Chairman, states that  I  viciously attacked the  school trustees.  This is hot a fact. 11 feel that the school  trustees of last year cannot be held'responsible   for   this   year's  school  pudget  Since that time we have had a change of  trustee members as well as chairman. I  also feel that our newly-elected board of  ���trustees cannot be blamed. I do not feel  that' anyone, without 'experience, holding  an Joffice .for so short a period should, be  expected to be able to prepare"^ budget'  of this magnitude. My only accusation of  them was ignorance of facts which would,  be necessary for them to prepare this budget. On the other hand, they have been  elected by the taxpayers to tbis responsible position, and have to realize that they  alone can deal with any existing situations.  Behind the scenes I almost detect another guilty whisper other than the voice  of our school board chairman. I just cannot figure out why  Mr. Chairman is  in  such a hurry to take all the blame upon  his own shoulders. Is this again in ignorance?' I have already pointed out that I  do' not pelieve that he has held this office  long enough or has had time or experience  enough to prepare such a budget. The Gib-  soiis's and Sechelt  councils jointly agree  ��� that the budget is far larger than necessary and will overburden,, the taxpayer a  little greater year by year. Now, if Mir.  Chairman did not help prepare the budget, but only helped accept it just who did  ��� prepare the budget for the trustees' acceptance. The only entity left is our administr  ration staff.  I. myself, am all for education, but as  a taxpayer I think it is about time we all  became a little more concerned over just  where our school tax dollar is being misspent.. What has happened to our ratepayers! associations? I have spoken up and  voiced my opinions���now how about a little  support from the general taxpayer?  WALLY PETERSON  Parents failing  Editor, The Times:  Sir���A meeting was held at tlie Union  Hall I (Old, Hilltop Building Supplies) on -  Thursday evening which had been well  advertised to try and get together with  parents to discuss sports and the ideals of  the Gibsons Athletic Association. Alas, five  1 parents turned out, together with seven  persons who arc members of the executive  and team coaches of the four soccer teams  that play in Gibsons, entailing some 60  children. These people give many hours  of their time to "babysit" your children on  Saturday and Sunday afternoon and many  do not have" any children of their own.  Don't fret, we do riot loose heart from  such lack of supiwrt and will not give up  what wc are trying to build in this community.  To tho few parents that do support Ihcir  children wlicn they play soccer on Sunday  , afternoon and the few that offer to transport teams to Sechelt for the away games,  our warmest thanks. Mor�� parental 6iip-  port would be greatly appreciated now  that the baseball season approaches.  T.  CONNOR,  President Gibsons Athletic Assoc.  .  ��� 1  Statistics questioned  FiiNor, Tfhe Times  Sir���It, Is always interesting to speculate  on \hu source of statistics quoted in newspaper editorials, or the purpose for which  ihe>f arc used. For Instance, in the issue  of tlie' Peninsula Times of February 21,  you /state that "only 13 boy* actunlly ��ra-  ^iiatcd from "a group of 53 last year from  Elphinstone . . ." Arc you implying that  thej-c were U2 boys, of whom only 13 graduated and 40 failed? If this were so you  would bc quite right in stating that "something Is wrong". If you are not Implying  tWs, then why quote Ihe figures, lor, as  far _as the readers are concerned, there  might have been only 13 boys in the class,  in which case all would have 'graduated?  The Tecord in this instance Would have  been excellent.  So lest the boys take the first implication and get an inferiority" complex, let's  look at the facts. Last year "in" Grade 12.  there were 24 boys. Of these seven'were  registered, inJ Grade 12 but 'werefoot, tak-  irigl fuuV pr^)Si^^..ie]soJi^^^rC'i^adtoAon.

It would appear from discussions I  - have had with ferry officers and crew that  their complaints are, in general, justified.

This goes back .to our first holiday trip  when we went to Powell River for the  Sechelt and visiting Kinsmen and celebrated Founder's Night and the pictured from left: Joe Benner, Dick the Minister's report, states that while ggj!helt Jlm ^^ -^ ^r i^ed With camp-  Kinettes enjoyed an evening of good tenth anniversary of the Sechelt Gaines, Frank Newton, Niels Hansen, there has been an increasing use of the .__ gear and beaded fOT powe_ River, a  --ii_������_;_ ,__*. o__..___.. _,___ __~.    -��,���_    ,-___* _���  ..**���.��-���     t*-~a ��� a c r>  mfirii,..tn   no aui_or__ve anodel for deter-    -ia-e we had never seen in'daylight.  n~ _.u, _,,,.���-. .     .   �����-_ ,_ hi*���. r.-.-n.i. ����-**��-�� m r..tv        T^e weather was great until we arrived  Here To Serve You  NOW LOCATED  at the Office of  CHAS.

Box 500 - Gibtont, B.C.  4J^  Career Development.Service,.-as soon,as  possible.        *  - This new service will attempt to reach  such young people when they leave school  and direct them into some further training  in vocational schools or elsewhere. It will  require a travelling team with- examining  and counselling talents, stated the Minister  in his recent address on education, in the  Legislature.  In many instances it might be desirable  for a young person to enter directly into  employment returning to the educational  environment ait a later date. With this in  mind the Minister will invite a representative of Canada Manpower to join the team.  Since many drop-outs contribute to the  welfare load and some to the, cost of maintaining penal institutions; the venture is  looked upon as a preventative program  which will pay for itself many times over.  Reference to educational television in  the   Minister's  report,  states  that" while  Y  V  fellowship last Saturday when they   Club.   Charter members attending,    Fred Oike and Sonny Benner.  ' F,       "  medium,  mining new policy has as yet been devised.  There is little research evidence to support or refute particular claims, and there  are many indications of complicated technical problems and extremely high costs.  These and other aspects are under constant study by the department and-it is  hoped that a special consultant on the  subject may soon.be engaged.  Mr. Peterson stated that the impression  seems to exist that nothing is being done  in educational television in this province,  but this is not so. In addition to experiments being conducted in several school  districts, television is used extensively by  the school broadcasts division of the Department.  The long term view of E.T.V. is that it  will not be fully exploited as an educational  tool unless it is integrated with other1 teaching aids, used when and! where appropriate,  and accepted with tne! philosophy which  accompanies the whole educational procedure. -!

However,  because a few young people have damage  to their hearts from congenital abnormalities or rheumatic heart disease, athletes  are examined prior to extremely strenuous  exercise.  The Canadian Medical Association reports that young people, very rarely, suffer from heart strain. It seems that the  heart muscles show some deterioration after age 30, leaving it with less reserve.  What reserve is left seems to benefit from  constant training. Thusl the man of 65 who  decides to shovel the snow from his driveway, or push a car, or run quickly for a  bus, is probably unwise. There is additional danger to the blder man if he has had  a recent respiratory infection which causes  added strain.  The lesson to be learned about he^rt  strain is,that the older.person should riot  subject his heart to sudden and unusual  strain, like wrestling or shovelling snow.  For those over 40 the CMA recommends  gentler exercise such as1 walking, playing  golf, skating or skiing.  Impressive piovie show  visits Sechelt Theatre  'CWPf'rS-  FROM all over the United States and Canada, teen-age high school students, a  thousand strong, will again converge on the  United Nations next summer. They will be  in New York to take part in the Nineteenth  Annual Odd Fellows' United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth, sponsored by the In-.  M��J^ * ^ "dependent Order of Oddfellows and \ts sister; organization, the Rebekahs.      '  .'pJanS; are already well advanced for  the project, and the Arbutus Rebekah Lodge1 No, 76, Gibsons is sponsoring a local  student assisted by the Sunshine Rebekah  Lodge No. 82, Sechelt and the Sunshine  Coast Lodge No. | 76, I.O.O.F, Roberts  Creek.  .      .    '  Arrangements are being made with Elphinstone Secondary School for the selection, by competition, of a qualified student  to take part in, the Pilgrimage's week of  observing the United Nations at work.  Students eligible for selection must  have completed the 10th or 11th grade by  June, be 16 or 17 years of age (15 by Special;.-'permission) at .the time of the pilgrimage, and be in good health. Scholarship, leadership, interest in community  welfare, concern in World affairs, and  general fitness to take part in the project  will be taken into consideration.  "The National Association of Secondary  School Principals has placed tihis program  on the Approved List of National Contests  and Activities for 1067-68." The project has  of selection by taking, in February, _  question examination on the United  dons. "UN Study Kits" are ;iaya_ibie  interested students. '  The winner will be determined try  public speak^ngvContest amongri-.th^^h^aj^.,  contestants. Contest must be' .omideted  and the 'delegate" selected by tne end of  March, 1968.  More than a thousand skidents from  all over the U.S. and Canada will take  part in the 19th Annual United Nations  Pilgrimage for Youth. The Project has  been widely praised as one of the 'most  outstanding in the country for educating  teen-agers  in international understanding.  at the other side and then *we were hit by  a hard, fast thunderstorm. Well, believe  me, when first going out camping this  didn't look too good' but aftep checking all  camping grounds, we settled on ithe West-  view camp site and- although!,. everything  was wet we soon had 'camp set 'up. This  was late in the afternoon and, of course,  there isn't that much square dancing in  the summer time. So I called up one of  our square dance friends, told him who I  was, and asked if there were any square  dances around that night? He said, "Well  Maurice, there-wasn't but there will be  now." And within about three hours we  were squaring our sets at the Riverside  Rancho in Powell River. A terrific hall  and a lot of fun was had by the four sets  who turned out so quickly to show us a  good time.  Then there was one of our other jamborees  at the  Roberts  Creek Hall  that  Harry, Bud and I took part in, showing  the square dancers   that   anything   can  happen.  This one was held on a Saturday  _igiht, Sept 02, 1364.  We put on pancake,  topped with ice cream and enjoyed a strawberry supper. Sounds like a mess, doesn't ....  it?  But it went over big, with a full hall of  square dancers from all over the country.  T_ere is just one thing that still bothers  me about ithat square dance and that is,  how did the rubber sink stopper get cooked  '  into the pancake I was served with?   I  have never seen such an innocent kitchen  staff in all my life. ���       i  At our latest effort to show square  dancers a good time and where everyone  . is asked to bring his own lunch, I intend  to keep imy sandwich in my pocket till I  am ready for it. By the way! Don't for- ��**  get, this next jamboree will be a St. Patrick's Square dance at the Roberts Creek  Hall, Sai. March _6^��Rr^ ^ p_i_r #1 ?  Prices are slashed! to 98 cents per square  dancer, with all dancers welcome. Coffee  is free.  If billets and transportation information  are needed, write M. Hemstreet, or phone  885-9941. So far one set is coming from  Victoria'way and up to four, sets from one  of the colleges in Vancouver. So this is a  good start. Get your request for space on  the floor in early. This helps us to cope  with billets. , <  Once I played golf with Dean Martin . The next square dance will be held,  and he missed his first two swings. Phil * Sat.

Strachan. '  Tuesday was a day of usual speeches,  with Honourable R. Williston, leading off  for tbe Government. One or two interesting points from his speech, 1.57 billion  cuMc feet of timber was cut *_|st year  which was down 1.8 percent oveh, 1966.  F5re protection last year cost between 8V_  a_d 6 million dollars in 1967. By 1975 the  Forest Service plans to produce 75 million  seedlings each year for planting, 8 nurseries are now in operation, two more  having been opened in 1967.

Peterson, while delivering Ms speech was rudely interrupted by  a lady in the Gallery standing up and say-  lug she had an appointment with him and  she wanted to know if he would leave the  Chamber and meet her right away. Quite  a flurry it caused, and the lady had to be  ushered out of the Gallery as quietly as  possible and the Minister continued with  his speech.  Thursday, we were visited by members  of the United Fisherman's Union, which  also meant meeting with some of them,  daring the morning and even during the  Session.  Then came Thursday night! It will be  a long, long, time before I forget that night  ���when the Honourable P. A.

Have our sons and darters no rights at all because we are in  Government? Do they not have a right to  work at whatever occupation they choose  the same as any other individual? Certainly we know that what they do or and  how they behave does reflect back on us,  but surely when they are free, and" twenty-  one they are able and should be allowed  to pursue their own walk in life.  Here in the House we should all be sure  in knowing that Democracy prevails. If I  do wrong, I expect that I-shall be brought  to task, and I would hope, given a fair  hearing in the Courts of this land. However, does ones sons and daughters, ones  families reputation have' to be dragged  through .the Legislative Assembly where  they are unable to defend themselves? I  would have (thought not, but evidently  nothing is too sacred to those who aspire  to leadership and will do anything to get  there.  Yes, I am concerned not for myself,  but to me the very moral fibre of our  society is being challenged.  I have said enough .or now.

His  red convertible was displayed on a black  velvet-draped stand with mirrors and minute chrome spotlights enhancing the display.

STARRY SIGN  At Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake  City.- "Cast of thousands! Every one a  star!'? "  HERE at last and told in his own words  is ithe story of Max Ferguson, better  known to many as Old Rawhide. Though  he no longer uses tbis^ title, he still has a  daily morning program on OBC radio in  which he does dramatizations of topics of  tbe day as he sees them.  During his career he has run afoul of  Parliament and CBC officials and has been  the subject of many church sermons and  letters to the editor in eastern publications,  all brought about by his irresistible urge  to poke fun at so-called "sacred cows".  Amusing and colorful anecdotes are told  of other radio personalities like Alan Mc-  ���by Florence McSavaney  Phee, Earl Cameron and Lome Greene, to  name a few.  Told in Max's own peculiar witty style  is an account of the boredom of waiting  for hours on a lonely rooftop to do a commentary on a Royal visit.
