In  ihe'  meantime it will ibe aeFCcessary to send  someone to Victoria for instruction io -he  details involved,  BIG DECISION  Letter from the proposed recreation  centre committee explained that interest  in the- project is growing-, financing is hoped to be carried ont through the regional  district and council's moral support fox  the centra was sought. ,  Many and varied r^sons were put forward as to why council would haye to exercise extreme Fcare in committing itself.  Alderman Ken Crosby explained tbatL-the  committee 'has wri-ten to almSost weiy organisation on the Sunshine Coast "they are  not asking for financial .support as some  seem to think, merely for general approval  of the project" he said.  Alderman Geny Dixon said he did not  see how council could help financially, "we  have too many other important things to  worry about .such as sewers and water" be  added. Aid, Dixon also expressed the view  that once the centre progresses, there will  be lots of problems as to location "a central location could leave things wide open"  ie said.  Alderman Ken Goddard said te did not  see bow council couldl refuse to lend its  support to the project.  Following leng-hy discussion and with  obvious reluctance, it was finally agreed  council would accept in principal a feasibility study of a recreation centre.  Bequest for support to an .application  for a (tariff change by Gibsons Radio Cabs  was filed following general agreement  that council was in no position to support  sucb a request Mayor Feeney said it is up  to ike applicant to take the matter, up with  the PXJC in -the same manner as |he bus  lines. "It would !be setting a present if  we were to support it" be added."  POLLUTION  Commenting on success of the Village  Sewer Bylaw, Alderman Dixon said he has  noticed a number of people are making  thgir homes on boats anchored at the  wharf, lie wondered "what action, if any,  council might take (regarding any pollution that anight result.

PENDER    .  'Principal of (Pender Harbour Secondary  school,1 iMx. Don Skelton presented ihe board  with ai report on small secondary school-.  Pender Harbour with 122 students is one  of il4 in the Province with an enrollment of  less than 259 students.  Pender Secondary is believed (to he the  smallest to receive accreditation which Mr.  Skelton said is due to good facilities and a1  good staff. However, ��� there are problems  which are outlined in the report.  Junior high 'subjects", can be handled  without too many problems and at Pender  a choice of 5 eleetives is offered. Only 17  senior courses are offered compared with  Elphinstone.? 40> courses. Pender.-/offers  graduation in 3 fields while Elphinstone  has ten.   -  Many courses at 'Pender are offered alternate years so that students often study  by correspondence which is not satisfactory, .yen under; supemsion 5/6 of the  ccurses are' not completed or passed.  _rnali secondary schools have more  teacr.: . ever entitlement due to the small  number of students in senior grades. At  Pender there is- an average of 14 students  per^ .class in grades .11 ^nd 12, in junior  grades fixe average is 25 per course,      !��  " . listing .he many disadvantage^ of A>  so.aU secondary school; the *epw* fctete$ _;  Wey/er, courses mean a greater chance ft>��.  a-pupa to find school tereteyant.       .. ./���_  ^Tbere is mote chance of a personality  ej__h between student and teacher Jwbfcfc  c attnot be remedied by changing teacher^  High achievers are brought down - to  class median; occupational students ate  either carried along or foiled. ��'  <}na small community there are mote  drop-outs due to _>pi��rt___iies for uflS&iUefl  iOhs. Tbere are fewer chances, of seeing  the benefits and possibilities of a good  education., Maturation Is speeded up when  teenagers are thrown in witb mature adults;  Many students find it difficult to tnafce  ibe transition from a relatively isolated  community io an urban area and therefore  see little reason tto obtain a good education  which in turn .means leaving the community.  One factor which can alter the'organization of a small school is the proximity to a  larger secondary schooL Where such a  school is close, the senior students can be  transferred.  Once a larger secondary school affects  the. operation of a smaller school, many of  the problems of the small school are eliminated.  A second factor is the availability of  specialized non-teaching personnel such a_  special counsellors.  - Superintendent H. R. Hanna congratulated Mr: Skelton on a good report and commented that Pender Harbour is a different  school" to operate.

Land Surveyors  Whitaker Block - Davis Bay  R.R. 1 Sechelt, B.C.  885-2332 or ZEnith 6430  His confidence is backed up by a very  strong  batgaming positioa  vis-a'WS . __e  provinces.  He has a imaJFority government, and does  not have to fear transfer of the dispute into  tbe Commons Fchainlber where a minority  administration would risk defeat by a hostile opposition.  The Supreme Court has already indicated that it is sympathetic to Federal control of the o_fehore resources. In an advisory opinion last year, it rejected British  Columbia's claim to amneral rights seaward  of the ordinary low wa .er mark and outside  inland waters like bays and harbors.  The provinces are divided among themselves.   Newfoundland and New Brunswick  almost   _an__ediately   made   known   their  agreement with the offer while the landlocked pr-V-aces.-obAlber-a and.Sflskatche-  wan are unlikely to have complaints since  it could;M/iie_iJ; shark^itftfte^S^uesr  Most of the other proviiices.l^d,:i>y British <Mu_n-ia'a_d <&ebec. are 3___ly to Mjk  pressing their claims to undivided jurisdiction over natural resources whether they  are on dry land or under the sea.  But the'-teams, of the Federal ofier could  divert their- attention frFom Ottawa to an  iDter-provinciai dog fight since the formula  for splitting up the share Of some revenues  is left open to- negotiation among the provinces themselves.  *~'Mr. Trudeau's offer would give the eigit  coastal- provinces the right to administer  mineral resources-noil is ithe one that really  counts���in about nine per cent of the continental shelf oftf the easst and west coasts,  plus an -mdetenmined area in Hudson Bay.  Each province would collect the revenues  from the area* under its control.  The rest of the shelf, outside of Mineral  Re.sour.ce lAdministration lines drawn -  around the  coasts  Iby   Federal  officials,  would ibe administered by the Federal Gov-  . ernment.,.........  Half the revenues from the Federally-  adminjstered territory off the east and west  coasts and in the Hudson Bay area would  be put in a pool to he shared among the  provinces, ilt is _<# dear whether A_berta  and Sasifca.tchewan would share.) The other  half���plus aU.' the revenues from the Arctic  ���would be Ottawa's.  Mr. Trudeau called the o_��er generous  and it was clearly drawn up as attractively  as possitole(in the interests of a speedy  settlement which Ottawa hopes will stimulate exploration by private campa-des that  have been unwilling to get invplved in a  YF^eral^^^ dispute.  The Federal^^ _ovifer__nent is clearly conscious of the potential of the continuental  shelf which covers an aafea estimated to be  almost 40 per cent as large as the total  land area of Canada.  >     .  -  'The reference in theS British Columbia  case coyM beghr again in every province,  and indeed 1 suppose there would foe nothing to prevent "endless iingation Jjy.private  companies that would try to get peranits  from one pjovihee or anpther," Mr. Trudeau told the Commons, explaining the Federal desire to settle the issue quickly.  "It is to avoid all this litigation that we  have racked our brains,to come up with  some kind of equitable arrangement, and  we think a 50-50 sharing is a .pretty igood  place to start. , . . One way or the other I  think it was important that 'the Federal  Government state the proposition or state  the itenms of a settlement out of court. This  is all we, did."  The provinces can be forgiven for seeing  things in a different Bight as they weigh the  Federal offer against the hopes many of  Ihem entertained to get total control of offshore resources along with the revenues  they will ibring.  For one thing, they were led to expect  that the whole issue would be left to negotiation. Instead, Ottawa has chosen to  leave them out of the process of drafting  a' compromise and has simply (presented it  to them as axf otKer.  And as they look at their maps, the provinces imay get the feeling that Ottawa's  offer is not really as generous as it anight  appear at first glance. The nine per cent  applies only to the east and west coasts  where, it represents about .42,000 square  miles out of 470,000 square miles. The Hudson Bay - Hudson Strait portion of the shelf  rcpr-jsents nearly as much again���400,000  ersbip of the seabed, only the right to explore and exploit it. Internationally, Ottawa will be responsible on a continuing  basis. For example, France bas already  claimed a large piece of the shelf under  the Gulf of St. l_iwrence around its islands  of-St, Pierre and Mquelon and the Federal  government is negotiating over this.  Secondly, there is some fear that the  provinces might engage in cut throat competition to attract investment. Exploitation  w_a be done hy the giants of the industry  and in terans of coj|��$ervail_ag power, it is  thought besl that Canadians be represented  by a single and their biggest government.  But that is no. going to prevent the provinces, or many of them at least, from howling that their interests are being disregarded. They could raise the issue at .the constitutional conference later this month, ahd  inject a sour note into the attempt to reach  a concensus on the direction of constitu-  tional reform.  A. millionaire left the following wili: "Being of sound mind, I bequeath my entire  fortune to my secretary, being of sound  body."  ,D'atsun eaih and trucks in Canada.

And when a Datsun 1600  sedari wia,- needed on short notice for a  dealer meeting in Toronto, the car arrived  by Air Canada within hours.  "Our 150 Canadian dealers span the continent, from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland. It's very reassuring for them and  their customers to knpw that this instant  service is always ready, no matter where  they may be located," says Vice President  and General Manager, H, M.

"Nissan's telex system between Halifax,  Toronto, i__ontreal, Vancouver and the Tokyo Head Olflce relays parts and service information within minutes���and delivery is  handled promptly and efficiently."  \ A complete and rapid parts/service setup was .the first thing Nissan planned in  Canada, with priority even over Datsun  dealership recruitment. The strategy proved iiself in sales figures, which have advanced to an estimated 9,000 vehicles in  1868 from.3700 in 19S7.

His scheme involved the bringing  together of people throughout the 'world  through the media of cultural activity.  Already considerable support has been  gained _mo_g__.it Canada and the United  States, with particulaxly wide acceptance  in Chechoslovakia. Here, his idea; which  centres on tbe young people, has won him  wide acclaim among cultural groups which  during his recent visit showered him with  an incredible number of gifts consisting of  books,, calendars, music, records and pic-  wires together with a medal by the Pair-  kyne University in recognition of his "Children to Children" ��� cultural exchange  programme.  Following is a contribution -to The Times  by 'Mr. Headley which, particularly at tbis  time of year, emphasis the dire need for  a iproject of this nature:  At this Christmas time, as always, our  thought- turn to children ��� for Christmas  has' a special meaning for children.  In 1966 in i��ur community was born the  Cultural Exchange Programme ��� Children to Children. F_he message is the  Christmas message���peace and good will  towards men. This programme has a special 'significance at this time which can be  best described by quoting ifrom a brochure  being drculated around ihe world.

Anyone who believes an the control of  i change should be concerned. Control over  nature has given us science. Control over  man  has given us the  huma'naties.  The  greatest challenge, lies in the ways *hai  a man can exercise control over self. In  this area he has mjich to learn. Man's  failure to control self has resulted in conflict, violence and wide-spread suffering in  all .countries of the world.  Change is inevitable ��� it will come  through evolution, revolution or both. This  programme is built upon the conviction  that social evolution -(trough orderly processes is the most effective and satisfactory way to create a better world (for our  children. In practice the children will p_ay  a major role in their own salvation. Control ovier self then becomes the core of  education. Therefore, teachers, parents and  those who are not parents- have everything  <to gain through -their dedication to and  action in the implementation of the objectives as stated.  Hundreds of children in Czechoslovakia'  and Hungary are already involved in the  programme. Upon the first occasion of my  work 'with ^school children in Czechoslovakia, 3__7, a young girl in Prague handed  me a card with her name and address on  it and asked me to- find a girl in Canada '  with whom she could correspond. My  daughter, Claudia, has been exchanging  letters with this Czech girl, whose name  is Hana, for almost a year. Although her  English is strange to our ears, the meaning is very clear. We all have been impressed with the national spirit and desire  for freedom in .Czechoslovakia, The last  tetter reoeivsed from 'liana dated Prague,  December %18S8, speaks for itself:  Dear Claudia, ''  1 tha'-k-jjou very much for your nice  letter. 1 'haven't-'got any another.

The fact that possibly there are more for

Speakers on behalf of fluoridation
have recently criticized the press for devoting space to anti-fluoridation groups.
This in itself condemns the very cause
for which they are fighting for in effect
they are suggesting the press should
publish only their side of the argument.
Most of the groups opposing medication of this nature are comprised, on the
whole, of responsible and greatly concerned individuals who have dedicated a
great deal of time, labor and money to
investigation of the controversial subject.
Within their ranks ,are medical doctors,
dentists and people Jfrom all walks of life.
They certainly are not crackpots and have
every right to state their viewpoint and
findings. Considering the widespread rejection to fluoridation throughout the

enforce its use by its advocates, there

WE have in the past warned of the possibility of infiltration into the field of
education by leftists and idealistic crackpots who could well impose their dubious
indoctrines upon the more gullible of the
youthful element with whom they come
in contact. That such is indeed the case
has been made abundantly clear during
recent months both nationally and internationally.
At no time have we specifically included our, local centers of education
although we have, on occasion, had good
reason to ponder the possibilities. Cause
for further alarm arises this week as the
result of a letter from a Vancouver man
enclosing copy of letter he has dispatched
to Education Minister D. L. Brothers
drawing his attention to what would appear to <be undesirable books in school
libraries in this school district, if there is,
truth in what the complainant alleges,
then we would suggest an investigation
would be in order.
We make clear the fact that we have
no personal knowledge as to whether this
situation exists and we are sure it will

has requested, we publish his letter to the
Minister in order to clarify his accusations; ■ |
Dear Sir:
It has come to my attention that a

Mr, Dick Gregory, is in the library of
the Elementary School in Gibsons, B.C.
1 iim told there are other similar books
in the same school and in thc High School

Just because our air is polluted with
poisons and harmful substances, this does
not mean that we deliberately put the
same into the food that our children eat.
When books of this type appear in our
school libraries, it has the appearance
of condoning such language, yet if our|
children were to use these words, they
would be severely reprimanded for it by
the same people who appear to condone
I ..understand that this book is not
. on the regular list of books recommended
by the School Board. It is with these
thoughts in mind that I would appeal to
you, as our Minister of Education, to
exercise your authority to protect our
children from this kind of foolishness
and hypocrisy, which* would endeavour
to spoil our educational institutions which
we are normally prou<l of.

You can't buy baking powdet
on way home from, 'te hookey'
by John Gould
IN QUEBEC Province it is now mplawfed
to operate a retail grocery after wwip
on a Saturday. It might he interesting to
hear some professor of Big Gwerpm?i_
justify a law 'that makes it a crime to g>i?k
up a can of hairing powder on the way
home from le hockey, but it is easy to
understand how such laws come to pass.
Wages and hours regulations, making no
allowance for special instances, created an
imbalance tbat toould xmly he corrected by
more la-w. If a lot of little fellows can't a-
fford to stay ©pen, then close their competition, and while this throttles a few
under the iguise ictf pubhc welfare it also
leaves the public standing with money in
hand before locked doors I suppose if law
can close a store it has every right to open
I believe there is a direet relationship
town and it was put\hy the.sidevplk, 1? the
shade, so people might sit :anji ta|K. Dr.
Piummer used to walk *icjr$$s and"* sit on
it, but hardly anybody else Wer did, and
the day was done. It wag" his small and
vain gesture to <comba£ what ba£ happened
to Saturday nights at the grocery. Our
town built a new firehbupe and the be^ch
had to be moved rl liave :$> ide'g' where it
went, but since then <_ur it§w-tJ|S- lacked
even that place to sit awj <&&• '
It was amusing when $ie J^in Street
Merchants' Association mef'to *_£cuss closing on Saturday nights. They votfld to
stay open Friday nights, instead, saying
customs had changed and people TKOuld
find FiTidays ihore' .convenient. -0ter that
anybody who kept open Saturday night was
"unfair." Nobody reflected -Jia't a %ood part
of the change in custom had come from
lack of chairs, and that buying groceries
was   not  tbe  total , reason-' fpr  Saturday

between the Saturday sessions in tbe old-   jnights. I catft ^member that I evet saw
time general store and the vigor of the "'Old Charlie spend'a'cent!
democratic principle.   Both ha>ve declined      '—^ .	
in the some era.  Three Plummers,  two '^
Babcocks,  a Griffin, Soule,  Johnson  and -
Maybury, settling all things in Higgms's l»('.
Market   could  run  the  United  States   of " -
America better than Congress does and
the proof lies in a simple fact—now that
Higigm's store is gone our peo>ple come
into town meeting without the slightest
idea what's on the agenda. The stately
halls of the supermarket, where discourse
is disco-traged, do not prepare the citizenry for igielf-determination.
" Being from the back road, we didn't get
in on the Saturday sessions too often—
Friday afternoon was our market time.
But once m a while for some reason we'd
go on Saturday and linger, and it was
pleasant to jog along behind old Fan in
the 'early dank and ponder, the wisdom that
came with1 sUgar, flour, and molasses.
"Old Charlie -was in rare f6rm tonight!" '
What Charlie (bnomulgated, whether he effected any converts or not, had nothing to	
do'with retail trade, but you 'got one be-'
cause iof the other. So with Charlie in 'mind1  ,
it can be argued that legislation affecting  ,
grocery, stores is itruly an unconstitutional
bridle 'Otf free speech, the right to assemble
and the basic struciiuaeof democracy, Nobody ever .comes right' ou* 'and is ays the
Charlies must be ssilepcod,' but evFcrybody,
wants to iput girocerp sfiores through tho
wringer— and the end effect is Identical.
There came a time in oui: little .commu- , ,
nilly,  coincideadta!" with the dosing of our
last real   giroc'dry,   When  our it'own's  Dr.
Phinri'mtT  larruped  into   our  kitchen  one
morning and headed % the rocker -by the ■
Window. It was his custom to stop in and"     , '
'"talk"' if, he passed, our'place1 ion a caid.
He was the last of the old time country mien

' The   hall  sparkled   "both   Foutside   and  within   with   'the'   traditional'   Christmas  colours, lights, evergreens, candles, lamps  and streamers added a truly festive aid to  the occasion.   . ^  Jim Cooper,  vice-president of the Society,   welcomed   the   29   members   and  guests present OjEfering apologies on behalf  of President Roy Holgate, who had been  called to the city. It was agreed by all present that no  apologies were  necessary,  since nobody had given more generously  of -ihe and _��f��rt on behalf of the Society  than Mr. Holgate and Jhi��. wife --Elsae.  The serving table groaned' under a tremendous variety of hot and cold dishes  which were pronounced  excellent,  <ie_.ci-  ous.and superb. J-inner convenor was Mrs-  I_eith Comyn,- who was assisted by Mrs.  Ea_p& ______& and Mrs. C Clear.  After  dinner,-  -hristinas   carols   were  sung,, with   Ed   Cook,   a   most   capable  pianist,  at  the  piano.   The  Hugh  3>uiE��s  showed their fine collection of sides of  their recent trip to Oa__or_ia and Oregoh.  A reaUly hilarious prngramme'iof' |fama_  followed, arranged by -Mrs. Lyncts- One iof  ..ham,, which 'Mrs. Lynds assured her victims had been played by the former Mayor  of iBurnaby and could, therefore, hardly be  too unditgni-ied for the present company,  consisted of iwa__ing with a tin plate balanced on the head and an orange held between the legs just above 'the knees. The  results provided a 'good deal of mirth and  entertainment,   particularly   for   the   bystanders.  In another game, each lady had ito design _ hat for her partner, who then modelled it. With the tables strewn with coloured paper, cloth remnants, plastic flowers  and pins,   some  truly  fantastic  millinery  ���"Creations   were   improvised   and   judging  �� proved a difficult problem for the judges,  Mrs. <G. H. Duff, iMrs. A. Kadin and Jerry  Williams.   The   1st  prize   was   eventually  awarded ito an exclusive model designed  by (Mrs. V.

IMPROVEMENTS ASSOCIATION  Also on Saturday, twelve (members of  the Ha__noon Bay (Improvement Association held their annual Christmas dinner in  the. congenial surroundin'gs of the Patioi  Gardens where ,they enjoyed an excehent  a la- carte' dinner.  A happy touch to the evening was the  arrival of (two surprise visitors, Doug aind  Marion- Foley, who had arrived unexpectedly from IMca Creek and, failing to _____  any of itheir feends at home, eventually  Jrac-ed them down at the Patio Gardens.  CHRISTMAS PARTY  (Permission has now been received from  the Schijwl IBoard for 'the use of the Half-  moon'Bay School for a daildpeii's Christmas party to be held on iMonday,. December 23rd at 6 p.m. All pre-school children  ���4>y Mqry /Tinkley  and -children attending school who live m  Halfrnoon Bay and the surrounding area  up to -and including Secret Cove and Nor-  West Bay are cordially invited. It is first  planned to have a party _&r the younger  children, when it is hoped that Santa will  look in, followed by something for the older  school children.'  IN BRIEF  There is quite a -migration from Half-  moon Bay this week. The Len Van Eg-  monds have already headed south in sear>ch  of sunshine,  Mr. and iMrs. Andy Hansen, accompanied by Andy's nephew, Kurt Hansen, are  leaving 'this week to fly to Fjyiajorca where  they plan to spend Christmas, after which  they will visit Denmark. During their absence, Albert Thompsoh wil reside .in their  Btedroofls home.  Ulan and Bailie Graves are on their .way  to Aiustra'lia to spend the winter in the sunshine.  :Ma\. and ;Mrs. iGuy Clear were recently  in Courtenay to aittend the Annual Christmas Dinner of thePoIyamna Club of which  Mrs-. Clear is secretary. They returned oh  the night of December _3t_ when a- fierce  gale was blowing and waves broke over  the Nanaimo ferry on tp the car deck.  On December 15>th, Ralph McCrady  spent his 81st birthday in St. Paul .Hospital.  Still' more tra'vellers have returned home  after a trip to Reno. They were Peter and  Tony Tschaifeowsky whose only complaint  was that the temperature was down to 1B  degrees during 'their visit. They experienc-  ed considerable .snow on the Shasta Highway.  While so many HaikEmoooers are leaving tbe bay to head south, one visitor arriving from Watson Lake in the Yukon,  thinks this is a pretty mild climate. He is  Ole Kadin who is the. guest of bis brother  Anton Kadin at Euieka.  Popular T.V. actor  in hilarious comedy  MOVIE-goers who have seen any of bis  previous, films or his Emmy Award  performances on television are in for a  laugh treat when Don Knotts comes 'to the  Twilight Theatre Gibsons this .weekend in  Universal- hilarious comedy in Technicolor, "The Shakiest1 Gim in The West."

Mourice MemistfeeJ-  WELL! t^ET me" tell you-, we went to one  ", of the; best CSuistmas. ssquare danep  partys we have, ever, ailitended-. The place,  Hopkins Hall wiith the Gibsons Squarena-  der's and jBieir talented caller Harry  Robertsah who; as usual, was tops in my  book with -Jfltck Inglis on deck to lend a  hand. Then Harry called on me: to bring  fForth slightly tarnished golden tones. Fellow square dancers, it could 'have been  worse.  The hall was beautifully decorated with  evergreens and coloured nick: knacks,  streamers and lights majestkly spread a-  bouit in a professional manner.  Main attraction was the Christmas tree  on stage, about ten feet tall, decorated up  fit for a palace. Yes, the square dancers  who did all of this deserve a great deal of  credit for a terrific evening.  At refreshment time the table, ful length of the hall, looked {good enough to eat  but I am glad I waited for the goodies that  were served. One should not sit down to a  table loaded like that if a light eater or on  a diet. Once again, the foods committee ~  should get a lot of .praise.  The first spot prize went to Pearl Tre-  thewey and Ant Holden and the, second to  Florence Robertson iand Syd Spain. ' :  All told there iWere just oyer three sets  on the floor but I would; bet that anyone  ;, listeanng .on the outside would'have guessed aibout a hundred sets were having fun  the Fsquare dance way.  The next square dance wil be held at  the H-pMns Hal on Jan. nth, 3SS9, usual  ���lime with the ���Gibsons Squarenaders.  Bad Blatchorfd says that the Port Mellon ! Heeze and Sheeze have 'been ambling  along with .two sets ior better this season  but hopes when 'they start again in.January they can build the club up to 20 and  a half sets so I.asked why the extra half  set and he said, "Maurice old felow all  good clubs should have extra squared an-  cers..'  Pick up a Peninsula Times next week for  memories -pf the square dance season of '68,  see you then.  In Iowa, a group of farmers held a  goose-calling contest to raise ononey to  buy a calf for the local Four-H club. The  contest attracted eight ithousiamd goose-cal-  ler_ and spectators, but not one goose  came, ,  Now some 40 members strong, Elphinstone School Band is making itself known in the district.. Under the  leadership of music teacher Frank  Postlethwa-te, the band will be playing at schools throughout the district  this week and for i shoppers and the  -hospital at Sechelt from 12-1 p.m.  on Saturday and at Gibsons from 2  to 3 p.m. Comprised mostly of Grade  8 _tuden.s, the band i_=_s- been well  received having played 'at the Gi>  *sons Armistice Service and-alt .St.  Hilda's Church "Fun Night".  ent Insurance  sw-yg  4MII|l||jyj||P  Gibsons  MQ LTD.

The Board  beard your case on Oct. 17. Your conten-  .tion was that after you had just undergone  15 months of training in your trade, it was  unreasonable you should be required to  undertake a job which was in fact only' pot  washing.
