Y  Rcglstrotion No. 1142'  2nd Class Mail  "WITH expansion of Gibsons village boundaries and ever-increasing municipal  maintenance work, Alderman Ken Gotl- ���  dard, at last meeting of council, drew attention to Ihe fact that consideration  should be given to employing a full time  assistant for works superintendent Fred  Holland.  In the past it has been sufficient to use  part time assistance but Mayor - Wally  Peterson commented that it will now be  necessary to make an appointment on a  salary basis after assessing actual needs.  Aid. Goddard replied that the time has  arrived and the matter cannot be left  much longer. It was therefore agreed to  investigate the situation further.  HOSTESSES  Aid. Gerry Dixon told council he had  been given to-understand by a B.C. Ferries employee that it is possible to obtain  the services of tourist information hostesses on the Langdale - Horseshoe Bay run at  no cost. i  "They have them on the Nanaimo and  Victoria runs and I understand it is simply  a question of making a formal request,"  he said.  It was agreed that the Chamber of  Commerce-would be "the logical body ito  make such a request and it was moved  the local Chambers be made aware of the  situation.

Mayor  Peterson,.told 'council "we  might not get it until after the first of,  the new year. It "is possible we might get  a portion of it this year."   '  Mr. Johnston quoting from the munic- ���  ipal act said such monies are due*in* Janu-  ary��� of   the_ year   following   expansion.  "However, as it was "carried out by June  1 there is no reason'why we should not"  get the per capita" grant?"

Crosby made clear the 'fact "he'is'  opposed to yield signs in 'the village. Aid.  Goddard agreed, pointing "out that such  a .sign is used normally only where two  roads merge. This is not the situation  relating to Winn Boad. -      -    -  It was moved Aid. Crosby look into  the situation and make- recommendations  at next meeting.  SEA CAVALCADE   .

Communities throughout the province  have been asked to come up with plans for  projects for which a grant will be available from the Provincial Government.  The grants,, based on per capita, amount  to such small sums thai it has been generally concurred that rather than go to the  trouble of arguing the merits of a series  of small and often insignificant schemes,  one  combined project might   prove" of  greatest benefit.    Letter from a local resident stated she - CABINET SHOP -  Creek. Therefore she felt such. money  should be kept for a project within the  village.  Mayor "Wally Peterson told council "1  think we can all agree with-this." Alderman Ken Crosby, however, said he feels  the matter should be turned over to the  Centennial Committee for its recommendations. Mayor Peterson agreed but  .stressed the fact that if possible the project should be kept in the village, where,  he said, -it will prove of greater benefit  to old age pensioners.  Alderman Crosby added that, a lot of  people are -under the false impression that  such funds will be turned over io a< central recreation jommissioo.  understands Gibsons share _pf the grant  was "destined to go into a ^central fund  which in turn would go toward the proposed Kecreafcion Centre.

Kenneth Kensall was picked up fol-v  lowing complaimts by residents of North  Road,, Gibsons, August 31. .He-appeared  in Gibsons court Tuesday, September 2  and was fined $250 and had his-driving,"  licence suspended-for-one month- --  . ��� John .McLoughlin of West~VanepuY  ver was seen driving-erratically Jseptem- ]  ber 3 in the Secheit area and was 'charged^  when found- -ito - be impaired.

JElfiDUCED WHARFAGE * ..  . Letter from Mr. J. E. Lee suggested  that in light of plans to employ a wharfinger and to charge wharfage fees, consideration be given a reduced rate for old  age pensioners.  Alderman Gerry Dixon expressed the  view! -that to differentiate would prove  somewhat difficult. Alderman Crosby suggested the matter be turned over to the  Wharf Committee and added, "It would  be nice if we could give them a lower  rate, others 'do it,"       <  LETTER FILED  ���, Circular letter from the former Secheit  Waterworks still claiming legal ownership  of the Secheit' water system was given  the speedy treatment and filed with the  comment that most people have either  received a similar letter or read it in the  press. Further it is of no concern to Council of Gibsons.  END OF EYESORE  The sorry saga of two shacks, originally  destined for conversion to residential properties, is drawing to a dose, Administrator Dave Johnson told council the second and last of the two Unland buildings,  which council had battled for, some years,  to get removed, is now up on blocks and  indications are' tliat it will be removed at  any time. After a number of requests by  council tliat he proceed' with proposed reconstruction, Mr. Unland was finally ordered to remove the buildings from thc  bay area and clean up ithe property.  MOMENT of truth, arrived for council-bf . ertiesr.

Norm ^Watson expressed the view~  it-is-only a two-day-a-week job and obviously* 'the village ; cannot pay that  amount' "'which means-we shall have-to  change our'plans," he added.  ��� It was-agreed Alderman Watson meet  with, the twp contractors individually and  discuss'the situation further. .  .-In a discussion later with' one of the  each fined $50.  Keith Wayne Rhodes, aged 21, decided  to take his aunt's car and go for a joyride.

Mayor Bill Swain .said the total cost to  the Regional District is, only $19,000 yet  they are asking the village to.pay almost  half ' (that . amount; for,. service," involving  Council approves .  START on the Secheit waterfront sea wall  is expected to start sbontly and, as ithe  result of excellent terms offered by the  contractor, considerably more work will  be carried out this year than had been  originally planned. '  . One tender only was submitted for the  project, that of Osborne Logging,,and was  at tht; jirice of $20 per lineal foot. Another  contractor had previously suggested consideration of a k>g' wall but had failed to  submit artender following advertising by  council for bids.  The Osborne bid was for a rock wall,  undenstood. to be 4.0' 'from existing property lilies arid filled in to road level. This  would allow for a twenty foot road, the  v  (������V'  ���.-���  ' ,.- "I*.,-.

This allows  for two cans per property each two weeks  - whether privaite.or .corrjimercial. Village of  Secheit, however, had originally provided  ' for one" 'can per' private residence once  weekly, commercial properties twice  weekly and as , many' cans , as they required. In some cases this could amounj.  to considerable garbage pick-up yet feasibly at no greater cost than a private  residence,  ' The contractor explained that providing commercial premises were, restricted  to the same one or two cans weekly land  charged extra by the contractor for additional pick-up, .then apart from being moie  equitable, cost to the taxpayer would be  considerably .-educed. '  WATERWORKS  ��� Alderman Thompson, referring, to a  circular isent to users by the former Scchclt Waterworks-Goi^papy,,said he was  purzled as to where the company had  come up with a valuation figure of JfiH),-  .000 attributed Jo,ithe Motherwell Report  , carried out for the 'Village.

This in effect will jptermit' con-'  struction of three years proposed work' of  a planned five-year contract.    *    ',       ' '  ���   Alderman Morgan Thompson .said he  considered this a very fair offer but Aid.  Norm Watson, who originally suggested,  the rock wall, said he would still like to  know cost of a timber wall. ���    ���  Mayor Bill  Swain drew attention to  the fact that a recent engineering study-  indicated that timber would be contiider-.  ably niore t-xpensive. This was supported  by Aid. Chuck Rodway, himself p Hogging   ���  contractor. Y  ,  Aid. Watson staled he had been iidviBC'd  that a log wall would cost $10 per foot  but. added ' tliat' he was not sure; of this *  hi-Aself. Aid. Harold Nelson also said he ,  thought  labor  costs   for  a   limbo*  woll  would coESt far more than rock., Aid. Watson agreed that UjIs might positiibly be to ���  and added, "Anyway, the man who was  keen on the log wall Jias failed to put ih;  a bid on it."  Clerk Tccl Rayner suggested council  consider having 300' done this year for for  $2,000 plus $100 cost of moving equipment.  Aldermen Thompson and Watson, however, expressed the view that the offer  was a very good one and tliat It could  never be cheaper. It was therefore moved  and approved that the foritx|acl as outlined  be accepted.

7/ie £ver Changing Scene
* ^*_
WHEN visitors arrive from the Prairies or
Eastern Canada and command me;
"Show us Vancouver!" I invariably find
we are discovering new things to see and
do together,   -
It works both ways, of course.
They will want to see some sight they
heard from back in Winnipeg or TorontoJ
from a previous visitor to the city. Or I
"will decide to take them to some place I
have heard about but never got around to
seeing, even after 20 years of living on
the Lower Mainland.
, So Vancouver and district, in that sense,
is a moveable feast, or, in another way, the
sum of the parts always adds up to more
than the whole pie-

and wife and kids caine out from Edmonton. He worked for the Canadian Pacific
•Railway, and be said he wanted to see the
terminus of the railway, the Pacific end
of all those thousands of miles of^trapk.'
I* thought hard, and then a soft little bell
tinkled in my head. We drpv<^'40W'n, to
the Bayshore Inn, parked, and, "walked
across the road and, lo and behold, there
was a heavy bumper at" the eh3 ot a 'single
track. Not much to Jo&k #t, but,i_i£ eotf

visit was the hit of the trip, and-the photos
are a great conversational piece -back iri

You see, it doesn't take much to please
some people, but the whole -area, -the
Fraser Valley, Greater Vancouver, Howe-

Some want to go fishing for salmon.
I jsend <them out to Horseshoe Bay where
they ,can re-out a boat for severar&wirs for
about eight dollars. I know the marina
attendants will fix them up with-(equipment, and tell them how to troll, and I
cross my fingers.
Or they want to climb mountains. Ey-
eryone crawls before they walk,' so I send
them up Grouse Mountain in the skyride
with a haversack lunch and they spend all
the sun-filled day roaming the trails and
alpine slopes and they have something to
talk about all winder long. '   '
Swimming, lying on the beach, girl
watching? That's almost too easy. Point
them at 10 a.m. in the direction qf English
Ray or Jericho or Spanish Banks, or send
them out ithe Dtas Thru way to Cnescent
Reach or White Rpck and you can forgejt
about them until dinnertime. l
Whencyer I can, J take my friends p
Stanley Park and give them my own
supcr-i-upex tour. A £ay long, it involves
a visit to the aquarium, gawking at Skana
the killer whale, o ride on the, fascinating
train, a tour of the zoo -wifji. ,i'0-ij$ :S^>ps

Okay; so you've taken three jaunts, and
you'd like to see more of the eity to wind
up your $rip. Welcome aboard.
Dining out? - Ten "years ago, Yd haye
.said you-could-eat cut, in every sense of
the word.'But ten years have seen an
astohfshing inerease in the number of top
restaurants. You ean still go Wrong, of
course, and blunder into a hash house disguised by-$100,000 worth of decorr but it
is highly unlikely. Today, a top restaurant
has to be'tops or it gees under. Yon like
plain Engiish beef? A chop house? French
cuisine? Hungarian fare, with waiters excitedly running about? Or the best fish
a?jd chips in the west? Or Indonesian
food, prepared for 20 persons on a stove
the size of ,a. large me#t platter? Or German food in one of the many cafes on
JRobsonstrasse? Or Greek food, ..eating
alongside the exuberant crew of a Hellenic
ship moored at Centennial Pier? Ix>bk,
enough is enough, Vancouver has food, of
every kind, to'suit eyery pocketbaolc.
And'dpn't forget Chinatown, .second
biggest'on'the continent, and loaded with

to, worry, Peporjreally .doesn't mean .all ■
thai mucb' Just go^ in. You won't be .
'faking a" chance, i'guarantee it.
So you're stuffed, and want to enjoy
yourself.   Look in the newspaper enter-
lainment sections and see who's playing
at the  nightclubs,  Isy's,  the  Caye,  the
Marco Pplp. Want to dance, to mix waltz- *
ing with frugging?   Try the Panorama -
Boof of the' Hotel Vancouver with the *
world's greatest view.  Want to just strip
' all you>' gears? Fine, try Oil Can Harry's
and see if ypu can stay half-way eyen
with the youngsters.  Or go out to Play-
land- at the Pacific National Exhibition
and scream  on   the  roller coaster  and
giggle in the House of Mirrors and eat
spun-sugar candy and have a ball.
Of course, there are concerts too, usually, at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and
professional theatre by the Playhouse
Group, and you might be in town on a1
symphony night, or when the city's opera
company is en display.
All" this is just sticking in our thumb
and plucking out a plum here and there
from this moveable feast that is Vancou-
yer,"'and its surrounding area. I suggest
you try it personally. You know what
you want.  I can only suggest.

Bowen Is*-  ;land had cohoes, but small stuff .'mostly,  from grilse size to about 4 lbs. " 7   '  Further,out  again, Worlecombe and  Popham Islands produced larger cohoes  - including a-16 pounder-which is about the  biggest for the Vancouver-Howe Sound  area this season.  Gower Point produced good coho fishing and sizeable cohoes as well; also the  odd small chinook. Salmon Rock close by  turned on the same kind of action'during  ' mid-week but folded on the weeknd. The  Rock was the scene of a tussle with a 28  pounder which was mooched here last  week.  Inside Howe Sound there were few  boats arid fewer fish except for some limited activity for rental'boats working the  area between Horseshoe Bay and Lions  Bay. Catches here included a mixture of  cohoes and coho grilse plus a few small  "chinooks.  From the Sands Heads and the North  Flats area comes word of light effort but  fairly good results. Catches averaged a-  bout two fish per boat Sunday, mainly  jack chinooks along with ,the odd coho  and larger chinook to 15 lbs.,'and also a  few pinks. Killer whales numbering about  "40 were sighted ih the area during the  day.  Boat checks at Indian Arm turned up  po fish,this week.  SUNSHINE COAST  . Word from the fishery officer covering the upper sections of the Sunshine  Coast above Jervis Inlet is that last  week was one pf the few really good fishing weeks in his area. The warm-up came  Thursday- and continued through" the  weekend with practically all boats from  the Ferry Landing at Saltery Bay clear  up to Desolation Sound taking fish���chinooks, .tp- 53 lbs., medium chinooks and cohoes.  .Sarah Point remains quiet, however;  and Toba- Inlet continues slow as it has  been for muph of the season-  Mystery Reef between Savary and Har-  wood Islands was reported good for cohoes this last Monday although coho  grilse were a menace here.  Last' Thursday- evening, boat returning from waters between Douglas Bay  and Texada' Island found good fishing in  the area.  Egmont produced cohoes and a few  medium chinooks intermittently during  the week but was slow most of the time.  A boat.check afloat in the area Sunday  evening found 7, of 15 boats with fish.totr  ailing 10 cohoes averaging 6 lbs. and 5  coho grilse.-  Porpoise-Bay in Secheit Inlet the same  evening produced a catch of 5 chinooks  around the 12 lb..mark and 2 cohoes of  about-10 lbs. for 5 boats checked afloat.

He said they will debate such potential solutions as asking the government  to form a marketing authority to sell  municipal and regional district bonds, and  to back it with provincial guarantees. According, to the spokesman, the municipal  bond market it at a standstill and a solution will be hotly demanded by the delegates.  Municipal Affairs Minister Dan Campbell is expected to face the delegation and  give a major address on September 17.

The water, acting as an .electrolyte, allows the electricity to flow and  when the water .goes below the bottom tip  of the electrodes, the flqw of electricity  is automatically, shut off.  Cleaning vaporizers is very important  to their successful operation, and long  life. All models have adequate instruction  in this respect but check for ease of'dismantling, for cleaning. A small screwdriver is needed to dismantle one model.  Some units list spare parts in their  ���instruction  leaflets..

So when shopping far a vaporizer remember to look for these points: The unit  .produces steam at a reasonably good rate;  the rate of steam production can be increased if desired; replacement parts are  available; it can be easily cleaned.

An economy wave the government  might have thought about'five years ago,  hut didn't in ihe heady atmosphere of implementing various election promises, will  result in a 10 per cent cut in the ranks  of the public service.  ""* Dozens1 of time-lionored, and some forgotten federal programs will be put to the  axe.  'The armed forces will be further reduced in strength from their present ceiling of 98,000 to between 80,000 and 85,000,  with accompanying cutbacks in the reserve force and civilian staff.  A number of military bases and establishments will be closed. So will an unspecified number of foreign embassies and  high commissions, although "modest" increases will be allowed in Canada's foreign aid program, a priority project  The object, as Trudeau explained in a  lengthy���and largely off-the-cuff���television statement, will be to cut the country's  cloth according to its tax resources, without resorting to further increases or higher  borrowing.  Efficiency will be the watchword, and  t_e enemy is inflation.  The most potent criticism of the Trudeau austerity measures is that it is a  case of locking the barn door after the  horse has bolted. Implemented five���or  better, 10���years ago, it might haye saved  Canada, and particularly pensioners on  fixed incomes, from much of the misery  of the galloping increase in costs that has  gripped the economy since the Diefen-  baker era.  Note that Trudeau can't be held to  blame for the errors of his predecessors.  He wasn't even in parliament when many  of the costly welfare and education programs were introduced.  Nor is he responsible for the massive  borrowings that shoved the public debt  up to astronomic levels for which we are  now paying in inflated interest costs.  The Trudeau diagnosis of the country's  economic ills is orthodox enough, and undoubtedly accurate. But his method of  balance the books, or curing the disease,  promises to be more controversial.  While most government departments  will feel the freeze on spending, the prime  minister's own office will grow in both  budget and manpower, and some of his  pet projects, such as regional development  and bilingualism, will be allowed to expand and develop unhindered by financial  considerations.  The measurement of departmental efficiency will be Trudeau's own. To him, a  broadly-extended establishment under his  personal control is justified because it will  be concerned with overseeing the cost-  cutting program elsewhere.  When other government departments  show they are operating efficiently and  holding their spending down, it will be  time enough to clamp down on the growth  of the' prime minister's' and privy council  offices, he explained blithely.    ,,.  .-.  The hostile reaction to the new austerity program wasn't long in coming.  Prime Minister Trudeau had'hardly  reached the door of the press conference  theatre in Ottawa's National, Press Building when leaders of the public service  unions launched a blistering counterattack.  Leslie Barnes, executive director of the  12,000-member Professional Institute of  ihe Public Service, decried the government's efficiency blueprint as "pretty inefficient except for shortrun emergency  situations." 7  "I was a.little disappointed to see the  return of the broad-axe approach/' he  added, "especially when the government  is just swinging at the civil service in the  hope that everyone else will follow in the  fight against inflation."  The Canadian Labor Congress���natch-  followed up with an accusation that the  government was "going off half-cocked"  in trying to fight inflation by eliminating  public service jobs.  This was "false economic theory," argued CLC President Donald MacDonald,  based on a '"national myth" tliat wage increases are tbe root cause of inflation.  From opposition politicians, there was  more derision and condemnation.  "/V pretty crude instrument/' dec-bred  Tory leader Robert Stanfield.

Now \in its third year, the contest  which runs from early September until  November 1, will award 10 young Canadian writers���one from each province���  $500 each. The grand prize winner will  win an additional $500. In addition 20  certificate awards will be 'presented in  each province.  Open to high school students from and  including grade 9, in the nation's public  private ,and parochial schools, the'.contest has1 already brought to the fore a  "number of gifted young Canadians who  intend to make a career in writing.  Contestants are asked to write in 2,500  words or less on any subject in English  or in French. The entry can be fiction or  non fiction or any form of creative prose.  "Our objective," said Canada Perma-  nent's president A. Bruce Matthews, "has  been to stimulate the young minds of this  country and to encourage them to put on  paper their inner thoughts and motivations. According to the comments of-our  distinguished judges and educationalists  across the country we have been successful in this endeavor."

Publisher  muuun-MMn  Firaflt tthiiogs fiwfll;  DURING thc past few months during  . which tourism reached its peak the  increasing difficulty of packing became  very apparent and on numerous occasions private entrance ways leading off  the main street of Secheit were blocked  off. It is a true but sad fact that few  motorists are prepared to walk even half  a block to shop.  This is a situation which could be  remedied by means of Bylaw and non  parking zones proyiding alternative parking areas are available. Unfortunately,  council appears to be taking the soiirse  of many other councils elsewhere by  waiting for the problem to first become  acute and by which time suitable property is not only difficult to obtain but,is  at a premium.  It would be safe to say that this is a  situation already in existence; it would  prove somewhat difficult at this time to  find suitable property-at anything like a  reasonable price iri proximity to the  shopping area; At the same time, council did recently purchase two lots near  Hackett Park some months ago at what  might be considered a reasonably fair  price.   Both were poor properties from  a building point of view but could be  put to use for parking. It might also  prove a wise move to buy more if there  are adjacent lots available.  While, at this time, such a location  might appear to be some distance from  the business area, it is in actual fact but  a stone's throw compared to the distances  one has to go in the cities in order to ���  park for any length of time. There is  also the fact that the village, during the  next few years, will inevitably grow at an  accelerating pace and that is the time we  have to plan for, now.  We do have the strip down Inlet toward the waterfront, filled in some years  ago in order to provide additional parking area, and this is discussed from time  to time with no resultant action. When  finally cleared up and established as an  effective parking zone it could accommodate maybe thirty or so cars. This again  would still only be a partial solution and  if we are to plan with a little vision, and  heaven forbid, it is high time, then future  adequate parking facilities should have  far greater priority than ways and means  by which a few shrubs may be stuck up  along Cowrie Street.

At the present time it sadly lacks  population although residential development is taking place to considerable extent either side of the actual village.  Acreage wise there is lots of room for  growth, and with two first class view  subdivisions already under development,  chances are that the much needed population is not too far away.  There was a time, about three years  ago, when council attempted to bring  about amalgamation of West Secheit.  Due to reasons not even worthy of comment, the move was strongly.opposed and  defeated. Consequently, village council  has, quite rightly, refrained from repeating such overtures and has adopted the  attitude that any future proposals can  come from residents of West Secheit.  Several members of the Secheit District Chamber of Commerce are residents -  of West Secheit and recently indicated  is that; tfiey,:.v/q^l;:!^7to';-see;:OO^cU-ag^n'  make an attempt to bring "about expansion as a logical step toward progressive  development of the area as a whole.  Council indicated it would not oppose such expansion but made clear the  fact the onus now rests with West Secheit.   Meetings subsequently called by,  the West Secheit Water Board, which ap-j  parently supports amalgamation, revealed  the  fact that while many were inl  favor, the same old questions and objections were raised, "what will we get out  of it" or "Secheit requires our money for  its own ends," etc., etc.  The whole situation revolves around  one simple fact, regardless of thc fact  Fletcher's Philosophy  ���Harry W.

We originally had the argument that  outside residents were opposed to planning as it applied within the village.  Shortly afterwards the Regional District  came into being and with it came added  expense and planning.  At this time the village mill rate is  slightly above that of the outside area,  this is because council has budgetted for  waterfront improvements on a five-year  basis. Taxes compared to other growing  communities are still very low and are  not likely to increase to any large extent  'for a long time to come.  Outside the village is another matter  altogether for cost of having a Regional  District and its functions, needed though  they are, hasn't even started to show yet.  Now in its third year its administration is expanding rapidly.   It started off  with a secretary-treasurer.  Next a build-  i. rog-jrispector, a sten9grapher,.��n;assistant  (fully   trained)   secretary-treasurer   and  now a works superintendent at almost  $10,000 per annum to start.  We have  seven directors and a chairman at $25.00  per meeting each. Cost of quarter is in  excess of $200 monthly.   Next logical  step will be its own building.  First phase of the water system is  due to start shortly which will take care  of half a million dollars without cost of  buying out of the Secheit Waterworks  and any smaller systems involved. There  will also, at a later date, be the expense  of a reservoir and at present day spiralling costs, we would hazard a guess that  there will be little change from a million  dollars.  Let us make no mistake, in order to  progress, we have to have these- functions. Cost to present population is questionable but there is little doubt such  functions will ultimately bring in both  population and light industry.  Which all boils down to the simple  ; fact that Sc"cl_elt*���. win |row. *quit& nicely ���  and economically  on its" own without  fear of the potential outside tax burden.  AFTER being closed for a year, Halfmoon  Bay School re-opened last week with  Mrs. M. Mellis as teacher ahd an enrollment of 24. There are complaints from  parents that it had been understood that  the school would cover only Grades 1 and  2 and they were never advised of the  Board's decision to go back to the'four-  grade schoolroom-  While Grades 1 - 4 are not doing as  much travelling as last year, parents are  being kept busy driving their children to  and from school and kindergarten. Eight  children from the Bay are attending Kindergarten at Secheit and a car pool-has  been organized by the parents. - -  AUXILIARY  The Halfmoon Bay Auxiliary to.

"VISITORS'' ; ���"*?_.-'.->  Recent guest at the Alan Greene home  was Dick Lonsdale of Chemainus who is  doing graduate work at Victoria , University. Mr. Lonsdale, who is working on  a thesis on the Columbia Coast Mission for  his M.A. was able to get a great deal of  the information he needed from Canon  Greene who was superintendent of the  Mission for 23 years.  , Two 19-year-did English girls arrived  in Secheit by bus one day recently with  the idea of visiting Mrs. Guy Clear at Sea-  crest. They were unable to reach the  Clears by telephone so started walking  towards West Secheit, both carrying  heavy packs which included a tent. They  had fortunately not gone very far when  a lady stopped her.car, picked them up  and. delivered them right to the Clear  home.  Mrs. Clear would like-to express her  grateful thanks to the Good Samaritan  who'did not give her name but said she  was a resident of Halfmoon Bay.'  The two English girls, who are members of a fencing club in Birmingham,  England, had been spending the summer  vacation superintending the Redwing  Camp for girls at Adirondack on Lake  Schroon, New York State. On completion  of their duties at the camp, they decided  to see something of the west coast and  so they .took a circular tour by bus  through Canada and back through the  UTS. before returning to England.  m BRIEF  There have been, reactions to the report in this column last week of geese flying south on August 27. Suggestions have  been. made" that they were not Canada  geese, but more likely cormorants, crow-  ducks or black geese. Perhaps we can  take comfort from-the implied suggestion,  that winter is not as close around the  corner as we had begun to fear.  Guests of Mrs, Pat Ness have been her  sister-in-law, Mrs. Stan Ross and her husband from Surrey. Mr. and Mrs. Ross are  former, residents of' Halfmoon Bay and  ��� bought the ranch from Mr. and Mrs. Tom  Robilliard Sr, when the Robilliard's moved to Redrooffs. Mrs. Ness was in Powell  River last week to visit her mother, Mrs.  Sarah Wall at the West Haven Guest  -Home. .;Y  Visiting the Pat Murphy home are Mrs.  Mary Shakeshaft of Delta, with her four-  year-old twin daughters, Dianne and  Elizabeth and her niece, Carol Smith.  Bill Gilbertson of Surrey has been the  guest of his grandmother, Mrs. Elizabeth  Pearce.  Mr., and Mrs. Hugh McPhalen have  been spending a holiday'at their cottage  with their grandson Robbie Mitten as  guest.  Readers Right  Take action  Editor, The Times,  Shy-Every fall a few misguided citizens; wearing red jackets straggle into the  woods.  Responsible hunters wish they'd stay  at home.  - These are the irresponsible characters  who mistake other hunters and domestic  s*eck for game. Given access to leased  timber lands, they repay the favor by  shooting at logging equipment, with damage ��K.metimes running into the thousands  of dollars. They tear down fences, leave  gates open; trample crops, disregard game  laws, shoot up 'No Hunting' signs and  powerline insulators, and generally behave  like spoiled and destructive children.  Fortunately these nuts are not numerous. But the great majority of responsible  hunters and. sportsmen for their own protection must rid the woods of them. They  give every hunter a bad name.  If you're a hunter, this means you. If  you value your privilege of free access  to the woods and fields each autumn, it's  Up to you to take positive action to protect  that privilege. Otherwise, sure as shoot-  ; ing, it will one, day be lost to you.  What action can- you take?  Next time you see _;ome irresponsible  character with a rifle violating game laws,  or darrjaging private property, report-him  to the appropriate authority.  You owe it to yourself, andtd every  other responsible hunter.  B.C.H.  Around Gibsons  AFTER an enjoyable holiday in England  and Wales,  Mrs.  A.  M.  Harper  has  returned to her home, Shasta Lodge at  New Brighton on Gambier Island.  While in Wales, Mrs. Harper attended  the Investiture of His Royal Highness,  the Prince "of Wales, at Caernarvon Castle,  also the International Eisteddfod at Llangollen.  When in England she visited the Rev.  .J. H. Kelly and Mrs. Kelly who sent their  love and kind remembrances to all .their  friends on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Harper also made a pilgrimage to  Royal Bamburgh in Northumberland  where she found the original St. Aidan's  Church after which the little Church of  St. Aidan at Roberts Creek was named.  This Church was built in 1131 and  stands on the site of the first church built  by St. Aidan in 635 A.D.  The Rector Rev. Stephen F. J. Wennett  made Mrs. Harper very welcome and was  greatly interested in how *^he relation of  the two churches came about.

Mr. Munro had earlier reported that about  10 per cent of color TV sets tested in the  recent survey by the Radiation Protection  Division were found to emit radiation  somewhat in excess of the accepted manufacturing standard. Examples of such sets  had been found among all popular makes,  the largest number being among the models purchased before 1967. The causes are  complex and are attributed partly to component desiga and partly to servicing.  The Minister repeated that, in the  opinion of his Department, these radiation-  emitting sets are not a significant health  hazard if given the usual degree of respect  accorded many other household appliances, The radiation was observed only at  the back, bottom or sides .of the sets, not  in the normal viewing position and this,  coupled with the very large satety margin  inherent in the accepted standard, made  the health hazard extremely small. How  ever,, to give more definite assurance of  hazard-free viewing, the Department is  suggesting the following "Safety Rules for  Color TV Viewers";  1. Do not attempt your  own servicing:  consult your authorized repairman.  2. On his next servicing call, ask the repairman to check the voltage regulating circuits and radiation shielding as  specified by the manufacturer.  Cultivate good viewing habits; do not  regularly sit closer than 4-6 feet from  the set and do not allow children to  lie with legs extended beneath the set  while viewing.  4. Place all color TV sets against a wall;  do not locate chairs immediately ad-  jaceht to the side or back.  These simple rules will assure safety  even iri cases where radiation emission  is somewhat in excess of the accepted  manufacturing standard.  3.

Said Mr. Williston, while  the Legislature was still  in session:  '.'In recent years British  Columbia has done as much  or more than any province  in Canada to protect Crown  lands for public benefit,  It is true that in earlier  days land was disposed of  which should not have been  alienated. However,development of many of the  parks and campsites that  we enjoy today has been  made possible by foresight in land administration policies.  "There has been a tremendous demand for lake-  front and waterfront,lands  and, with the common use  of aeroplanes, the lack of  road access Is not the  deterrent to many of, our  beauty spots that it used  to be. To prevent future  governments having to buy  back lands desireable for  public recreational needs,  a policy has been established whereby no application for lakefront or waterfront land is given favourable consideration until  a careful field examination  of the whole adjacent  waterfront area has .been  made.  "By granting leasehold  tenure to lakefront and  waterfront lands rather  than permanently alienating such ^property by sale,  control for future public  benefit is being retained in  the Crown. The policy now  in effect will protect recreational lands."  Earlier this year, Mr.  Kiernan addressed a loggers' convention:  "About one-half of British Columbia Is destined  tQ provide our forest crop  forever on a sitstained-  yield basis. Another 30  percent of the province is  described as rocky or  barren.  ���The forest crop has a  harvest cycle of from 30  to 100 years.  "The concept that the  public has the right of.  access to what are fundamentally public lands encompassed in the half of  the province under sustained-yield management  is traditional and well  established. British Columbians, like most Canadians, have long been  relatively free to wander  at .will throughout,. tho  vastness of, their land.  Indeed, people in other  countries recognize this  freedom as a Canadian  peculiarity.  ",  7  *���.,  ii-.  - . *   VHS."  is.***.  -*   V- s*J   - '.  r *��� I  I *-  /  *J*Vl  "t Af-��  �����.

It  has attained recognition as  a specialized science re-j  quiring trained personnel  for the administration of  sound policies. But there's  a thorn in the aide of every  tralhed biologist wherever  he may be, and only time  and education will remove  lt.

He'sa self-  styled expert on all hunting  matters, ond his sole qualification is ownership of a  hunting license,  Tho ffi.orK.man'-- chief  complaint la that the wildlife biologist doesn't know  tho score. The hunter's  most common mistake Is  failure to realize that he,  like the biologist, can be  wrong. His error, however,  in apt to have more serious  results than that of tho  biologist.  Duck laws build up deer  herdB but they can create  more serious problems In  the process; after the lawn  have served their purpose  they are difficult to eraee  from the books.  Hon. W, K. Kiernan  "public has the right."  "Any philosophy that  would exclude the public  from sustained - yield  lands, which Includes some  of the most attractive areas  pf the province, cannot  be accepted.  "The principle that  rights are balanced by  responsibilities must be  heeded here. If wc ��� the  public ��� have the right of  access to sustained-yield  lands, we must accept the  responsibilities that go  with that right. In places,  at times, for certain reasons, It can mean restrictions, usually temporary,  of that right to those who  seek access for the purpose of recreation. We can  think of several situations  which might bring about  such denial; thcflrehazard  Is one; thc fouling of on  area by accident, carelessness, or vandalism, creating danger to both people  and the forest; tho threatened security of logging  company equipment and  facilities Is another; and  the safety requirements at  logging operations.  "Let the stated policy  ' be this: except where tho  safety of tho public or tho  forests materially in  threatened, the public has  a, right of access to sustained yield lands, re-,,  strlcted only by reasonable  'safeguards."  He's just a little tougher  than sun-baked steer hide.  His   blue denims,  broad-  brimmed hat and deeply-  tanned face are the trade  marks of a profession that  is conducted in the remote  wilderness   of   mountain,  forest and stream. There's  hardly-a situation that *pc-i  curs in the bush that he  can't   whip   single-handed  and   armed   with   nothing  more than a pen knife and  a neckerchief. This is the  image   of   the big   game  guide,   and   for the most  part it's not too inaccurate.  But can you imagine him  going to school, I sitting in  a classroom, taking notes  arid graduating with a certificate? Well, that's what*s  happening  in British Columbia and it's part of a  scheme to provide sportsmen   with   a   standard of  service   second   to   none.  Most of the woods and  nature can be learned only  by experience in that great  classroom where the open  skies are the only celling,  But there is much more  required of today's guide  and outfitter than simply  being able to survive in  the wilderness, find the  haunts of fish and game,  put together colorful colo-  qulal phrases and exist on  a diet of beans, bacon and  bannock. In an era when  men have walked on the  moon and events half a  world away are watched  as they happen, the guide  of the present is having to  cater to a clientele that  live in a up-to-the-minute world and:*A*ho require  the old-time trophy hunter  who was almost as tough  and resourceful as the  guide himself. Sp, keeping  in step with the rest of the  world and its changes,  guiding has gone to school.  The course is maintained  through a co-operative effort of the Department of  Manpower and Immigration  of the Canadian Government, the. Department of  Education of1 the government of British Columbia  and a Training Committee  from the Western Guides  and Outfitters Association,  representing the guiding  industry of the Province.  The guiding Industry has  declared the necessity for  such a course and suggested the curriculum that  should be followed in order to provide a maximum  benefit to the industry and  to the market it serves.  Canada Manpower, through  federal adult education  funds, hasi supplied the fin-  y^ncial support needed and  the7 provincial Department  of Education has made  training facilities available  at the Prince George Vocational School.  At present there are two  courses per year being  scheduled, each being of  two hundred and fifty hours  duration. Under a normal  school schedule, this would  entail ten weeks of Instruction, but when the guides  go to school they absorb  this instruction in six  weeks.  And what do these men-  of -the-mountains learn  when they go to school?  They learn first aid (St.  John's Certificate), swimming (Red Cross Certificate) and water safety rules  and regulations. They are  taught public relations,  basic psychology and employer -employe e-client  relationships. Federal and  Provincial laws pertaining  to fish and game as well  as land-use and labor laws  come within the scope of  the" course:.': Use "and maintenance.: of radio -., telephones, search7- and - rescue techniques and Co-operation, health and sanitation, food catering, business administration, photography and Canada Customs regulations are all  covered and these are only  some of the subjects that a  guide learns at the Prince  George Vocational School.  Don't be too surprised  or skeptical when thatgriz-  led guide proudly displays  his class picture and, his  certificate of graduation on  the log wall of his hunting  camp. He has been to  school, and he's ready to  make your outdoor vacation  more satisfying and pleasurable because of it.  Federal wildlife service  tends nation's migrants  How does the Canadian Wildlife Service fit into the  national wildlife picture?  The Canadian Wildlife Service carries out both  wildlife research and management. As a bVanch of the  Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development,  it is entrusted with federal responsibilities for wildlife,  a renewable resource of ever-increasing importance to  the national welfare and economy.  Each province has control over the natural resources  within its boundaries, including wildlife. However,  because Canada signed the Migratory Birds Treaty with  the United States in 1916, there is a federal responsibility  for the management and protection of migratory birds.  The Canadian Wildlife Service administers the Migratory  Birds Convention Act and Regulations, for the federal  government. In practice, federal and provincial governments co-operate in ail matters concerning migratory  birds. The Canadian Wildlife Service studies, migratory  birds throughout Canada and conducts scientific research  into other wildlife problems in the Northwest Territories;  the Yukon Territory, and Canada's National.Parks; it  also co-operates with administrative agencies when  wildlife management programs indicated by research  are instituted. ��  The Wildlife Service staff includes mammalogists,  ornithologists, limnologists, pathologists, a pesticide  investigator, and a biometrician. The head office is in  Ottawa and there are regional offices in Edmonton and  "Ottawa. Smaller offices are located at Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory, Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon,  Winnipeg, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick, Nova  Scotia and Newfoundland.  The Service administers 94 migratory bird sanctuaries throughout Canada. It is now participating with the  provinces in a major program of preserving, by purchase  and long-term lease, wetlands necessary to migratory  birds  for breeding and for resting during migration.  Safeguarding wildlife  is sportsmen's aim  By   Geoff  B.C.   Wildlife  Warden  Federation  British Columbia offers  some of the finest hunting  in the world, but will it  always be so? Hunters who  have been forced to move  farther ,:.. afield to find  hunting opportunity comparable to what they; used  to enjoy almost In their  own backyards are certainly aware that changes have  taken place In the past  twenty years. Industrial  activity,, water impoundment, sprawling housing,  highways and other developments have transformed  British Columbia's landscape.  Bighorn sheep have been  reduced to a fraction of  former numbers through  competition on their winter  range. Mountain goat have  deserted some of their  former haunts now accessible by road. Pheasant  populations have declined  under changing agricultural   practices and    the  pressure of numbers of  hunters. Waterfowl have  been displaced by drainage,  urban development, reclamation and reservoir  flooding. Grizzly bear and  caribou are being confined  to shrinking wilderness.  Piecemeal, other changes  have reduced the capacity  of the land to support wildlife   and hunter freedom.  What can the hunter do  about it? Watch his sport  disappear? Or simply move  a little farther north,  higher up the mountain.  How long will those solutions be practical? Must  he resign himself to smaller bag limits, shorter  seasons as the province  develops?  British Columbians have  long accepted the presence  of wildlife and freedom to  . hunt as things to be taken  for granted. It is an attitude that permits destruction of wildlife habitat  without protest.  (continued on page 4)  Kamloops mill  wins award share  Kamloops Pulp & Paper  Co.

Few hunters bother with
a year-round exercise program. After a long layoff,
a reconditioning of the body
is essential if it is to withstand the strains of a
rugged hunting experience.
There's a better way to
get in shape though, one
that will give you more
enjoyment and probably
pay off in bag limits. The
smart upland hunter will
take periodic walks through
his favorite gunning areas,
getting the exercise he
needs while at the same •
time picking up valuable
information on .the daily
habits of the game he will
be hunting.
If you don't hunt upland

it on the map for what it
really is, I hate to see
someone else make the
same mistake of coming
here to hunt moose."
He leaned over the map
that lay unfolded on our
camp table and pointed at
the tiny blue dot that looked
so innocent and pretty
among the green and brown
lines of the Snowdon Range.
"Just look at it again,"
he shoved the map over to
me and continued, "it
hasn't been named yet. I
suppose either nobody's
had the guts to put a tag
on this swamp or else we
are the first nit-wits ever
to come here. No-Catchum

With the last bite of
ptarmigan, safely chewed
up -and * Bwaiiowed he muttered 'as if to himself but
still audible enough to be
meant for me.
"No moose, no caribou,
no sheep and no fish; and
for that we've come all the
eighteen hundred miles
from Vancouver to Atlin."
I didn't really blame
Phil for being bitter and
disappointed although he
hadn't hired me to guide
him; being my brother-
in-law, I had taken it upon
myself to, show him some
of Britibh Columbia's
better moose range. He
hadn't hunted anything
larger than gophers and
when he had asked if he
could come along on this
hunt I had answered enthusiastically. I had hinted
at the possibilities of collecting a new world record
trophy, and we both had
laughed at that suggestion.
"Charter that Beaver

this sourdough country,"
speaking directly now he
continued his lament, "the
trouble with you is that
you're too darn optimistic. Just like the chairman
of the Chamber of Commerce and the Tourist
Bureau rolled into one.

"Well now," I couldn't
let him get away with such
a statement, "if that's what
you're after, we'll pack up
here and I'll take you on
a guided tour of Vancouver's skid road."
"No, no, you know what
I mean; in seven days of
hard hunting we didn't
find one single species of
big game." He heaved the
ptarmigan skeleton into the ,
fire. *T2ven these are impossible-, tougher'n grizzly
bears," he cussed.
Phil was only partly right
because on our third day
out 1 had a run-in with a
mean she-wolverine and I
had to shoot the beast;
then we had found a flock
of Stone sheep but only a
single 3/4 curl ram with
"He's too small to brag
about," Phil had said, "and
besides, I woundn't want
to be known as the guy
who shot the last of the
Stones. Anyway the wolver-
ine's hardly bigger'n a
Keremeos chipmunk."
We had searched the high
ridges around the swamp
for caribou when we found
a bunch of ptarmigan.
'."Suppose I can hunt them
with my bow and arrows?"
he asked.
"Sure, I have no personal
objections, if you have the
right type of arrows and
know how to use them,"
I replied.
The following morning
he brought his hunting bow
"Sixty-five pounds of
pull," he explained, "and
it won't even disturb other
game." \
His accuracy amazed
me. The slender aluminum
shafts drove straight and
true and although a ptarmi-
fan is a rather small bird
Till didn't miss. His first
shot pierced about halfway
through the bird and stuck
fast. Not the ptarmigan
though, it unwound In a
flurry of feathers and
wings and sailed off downhill. Half way across the
deep canyon It suddenly
dropped dead. Phil wasn't
discouraged. He tried again
with similar results; finally he nailed a bird to a
clump of moss; that's the
one I had cooked for him
and like he said, it was

"two-ninety-five per shot.
Wholesale that is."
While Phil studied the
map I finished my supper
too. As I stuffed my pipe
I glanced through our open ,
tent flap and saw a splash 1
of water down on the lake
where a small peninsula
cut half way across from
the opposite shore. I reached for my binoculars.
"What're you looking at
"There's a moose in the
lake," I said; then, after a
second look, "there are
two large animals in the
water near the peninsula.
Still want to call it No-
Catchum- Lake?"
"Yup, we haven't got one
yet, haye we."
Phil I busied himself with
his big spotting scope.
"Holy smoke, there are
three animals," he corrected, "but I can only
see two of them clearly,
they are cows."
'The third must be a
bull, want to go after him?"
Phil tested the wind.
"It'll be dark in an
hour," he said, "and that
breeze is all wrong,jit's
blowing right from here to
them. Sure, why not, let's
go after 'em."
He rummaged among his
gear and broke out his
chest-high fishing waders
and while I inflated our
rubber boat he put them
"We'll need the axe and
some rope too," he reminded me. "And don't forget the lantern, we might
have to skin that moose
by gaslight."
Originally Phil had planned to hunt moose with his
fibreglass bow but I convinced him to take his rifle
along., I Just didn't like the
idea of having a bunch of
razor broadheaded arrows
In the fragile boat.
"Take lots of shells
along," I said.
There was only one
chance to approach the
moose and that meant to
cross the lake and then
to row or drift down on
them; hoping they wouldn't
get our scent.
The sun had Just dipped
behind the snowy ridges of
the Snowdon Range on our
left. I knew we'd have to
hurry. Hugging the shoreline on our right I hoped
our silhouettes might blend
with the willows of the
swamp and rowed again.
. "For goodness sake be
careful," Phil complained,
"don't splash so damn
much! The moose will hear
That figures, I thought,
It's his first big game hunt
and he sounds like an expert
"You're sure It'll be a

"It better be. I hate to

just for the fun of it. Can't
you see him yet?"
"Yeah, there's something black moving about
the bushes on the far shore.
It's coming into the lake
now. There are ripples on
the water. Now there's
something white way up
over its back. What is
I stole another glance
over my shoulder anjl my
heart stopped for a
moment. That something
black was indeed the greatest bull moose I had ever
seen. He stood ankle deep
in the lake and looked like
a black plow horse, wearing
a halo. His huge antlers'
shone like the white of a
Dall sheep.
Phil's city eyes still
hadn't recognized him for
what he was but the bull
waded out towards us. It
seemed he wanted to join
the feeding cows. I peeked
through the bush to check
on the cows and sure enough
they had their heads under
water to feed on lily roots.
Just then one cow looked
up and saw us. In a flash
the water exploded into
foam; half running and half
swimming she headed for
the swamp.
Then the bull moved too.
He hadn't grown Ito such
gigantic size by waiting
on hunters, he stepped
high and fancy to reach
cover. Then Phil recognized him. He shivered with
"Whoal Hold off a
second!" I shouted at him,
"You can't shoot him while
he's still in the lake. Hang
on - how! take him quick!"
The next instant I regretted saying it. Phil
stood a little behind me
and to my left; the muzzle
blast of his magnum near-
Ty.blewmy ears off.
"He's down," Phil hollered.
The bull had fallen onto
his haunches, then in a
shower of water and mud
he turned over on his back.
He struggled for a moment
and regained his footing.
Another flash and a blast
and again the bull fell,
the whomp of a solid hit
echoed across the lake.
The bull was in real trouble
now he struggled to get
up. He shovelled water and
mud with his broad antlers
and then he sat up like
a big dog. Phil's fo-mh
shot brought him down
"We'll skin and quarter
him tonight and tomorrow
we'll bring out the trophy
and the meat," I said.
We rowed over to admire
our trophy and then sat In
the boat frozen In disbelief of the slow motion sight
that met our lantern's
beams. The moose, trophy
head last, was slowly sinking Into the deep mire at
the margin of the lake.
Aral ©o it happened, wet,
bare and cold I rowed back
to our camp. The moose
was lost for good.
Later that night after
we had cleaned up and enjoyed the beneficial effects
of a hot and strong beverage, Phil sat down to brood
over his lost trophy.
"Dammit all, I wouldn't
have guessed it; bo much
bad luck. And who'd believe,
me back home? It was such
a great bull, it mlght've
been a new world record,

There's no  pat answer to this question but there are some guidelines  that can be followed and which will give a better than  average ' chance of ensuring a "fair shake." But it  should also be remembered that a hunter-guide  relationship"is not a one-sided thing. The sportsman  has some responsibilities to his guide, too. -  In British Columbia there is a law which requires  every big game hunter who is | not a resident of the  Province to be accompanied by a guide who is a holder  of a current license issued by the Fish & Wildlife  Branch. This means that non-residents are forced to  decide which guide to choose while the resident has  the option of a do-it-yourself hunt. But as more resident  hunters are realizing that a do-it-yourself hunt is far  less satisfactory and not that much cheaper, they too  are concerned over making- a wise choice of guide-  outfitter.  Here are a few pointers;  First it has to be decided what species are to be  included in the hunt because costs vary according to  the species and the habitat in which they're found.  Alpine species such as sheep, goat and caribou require  a guide to supply a more elaborate outfit than for lowland  game and also, mobility is desireable in the mountains  and this is expensive. Grizzly hunting is going to cost  money no matter where it's carried on.  If it-is going to be a multi-species hunt, more time  will be required and consequently more expense. So  start your thinking with the idea that the .cost of the  hunt is going to be a criterion of whether or not you're  dealing with a reputable guide. This is not a completely  foolproof guarantee of good service, but it is an important  factor to consider. Y  When it is decided what species you're going after  you will probably have a choice of several areas In  which that particular game is found. The British Columbia  Tourist Directory lists game by species in the various  Management Areas and this is an easy reference to use  when making your choice of location.  Now, you've made your choice of species and also  the area in which you intend to hunt. All you have to do  now is choose the right guide-outfitter in that area,  and that's what this is all about. In the back of the  B.C. Tourist Directory is a list of guides by Management  Areas, but unfortunately the list Isn't too reliable asr  it usually runs behind the times and it lists the holders  of guide's licenses, not reputable guides. This, however,  is the best source available at present and it does  give the prospective hunter a place to start,   y  If there are some names that you recognize from  advertisements or mention in outdoor articles, these  should be jotted down first and then pick a few at random  till you have a list of a half-dozen or so, together  with their addresses. Write letters of enquiry to each of  these ( and here- is where a hunter's responsibility  starts) and specify the type of gamkyou are interested  in, the number of days you wish to hunt, advise of any  physical disabilities you might have that would affect  the hunt, state whether you are after trophies or not  and how many people will be in your party. All bf  these are important to a reputable guide and he will  not be able to give you a satisfactory Answer unless  .'.'���he is kwarrof them;'i,tf * ��� *'," ������ v'jv';i'" l?7 ��� "7"-':"*:1 Yy-  Literary skill is not necessarily an attribute of a  reputable guide so don't pick your guide by his ability  to write a fancy lettet." A good operator, will/however  give you direct answers to your inquiry and he will tell  you whether/ or not he can cater to your party. By  comparison of prices ��� and remember these guides  should be quoting on the same area and species ��� you  will be able to make a judgment on which is ready to  provide the services you want and which isn't. If the  price is comparatively low you can bet that the guide's  standards are similar and that he is cutting corners-  somewhere. If the price is comparatively high, the  guide is probably supplying some services that others  are not.  Another mark of a reputable operator is one who  requests a reasonable deposit when booking your reservation. The hunting season is short and no good guide-  outfitter can afford to have a vacancy in his bookings  after making his plans to hunt that period. If the deposit  requested is less than one-third of the total price, you  may be dealing with a man whose whole operation suffers  from apathy.  The Western Guides and Outfitters Association has  been working for the past three-and-a-half years toward  eventually being able to assure all sportsmen of receiving  fair service for fair cost, but to date this organization  is not in a position to recommend or reject specific  guides in the Province. There is one more check you  can make, however, in helping to determine whether  or not you're dealing with a reputable guide. Inquire  if he is a member of this association, and If he is,  it's Just one more step you've taken to decrease your  chances of "buying a pig in a poke."  If after all this, a hunter still finds he's drawn  a dud, it is his responsibility to his fellow hunters and  to the guiding industry of B.C. to place a report with  Western Guides and Outfitters Association so that that  organization can continue ltB work of upgrading the,  standards of guiding in the Province. The Association  would also like to hear about the reputable guide you  get, too.  ��� i  ** V  fS    * "��� \ J**iV-y'  **���      I..***    r   **��� '*  Y& ?'*%*.'.

Unlike other forms of  hunting, the trophy quest  is a specialized endeavor.  It requires selectivity on  the part of the hunter, a  considerable amount of  patience, and a basic  knowledge of what the  record quarry looks like  on the hoof and a hundred  yards from the tape measure.  - Taking measurements in  the field is quite out of the  question. A bit of research  into the subject Will help.  A basic requirement is  knowledge of existing trophy records. Once the  hunter knows what he is  after, the next step, is to  be able to recognize it at  long distances in the animal's own habitat.  Photographs in hunting  magazines^and encyclopedias Will help. Illustrations  showing different views of  the animal at varying distances should be studied  carefully.  Attention should be paid  to such details as ear width  and height, antler curl,  number and placement of  points, rack height and head  size, and the relationship  of one to another.

To make a diick caller  out of anybody but a thoroughbred mallard takes  time and practice. But  more important it takes  instruction. Only for ducks  does the art come, more  or less, naturally.  Where does a man go  to get competent instruction in duck calling? Or  where/ for that matter,  .does he go to find instruction for calling on crows  or geese or predators or  whatever?  From a practical standpoint, finding such help  isn't easy. Friends and  relatives most often are  the most logical source of  expertise, but for some  reason those most eager  (tp' give help'.and. advice are  ��� those' whose ability is most  questionablf. Real experts  are often quite chary about  revealing their secrets���  especially, as in the case  of professional guides,,  when their livelihood may  be involved.  Today the most reliable  source of Instruction in the  art of game calling is  through recordings. Several types are on the market.  These records have had a  great deal of success in  giving the would-be duck  caller ��� or crow caller or  predator caller ��� the facts  to get started in the sport  right.  Game calling, whatever  the species sought, is not  simply a matter of producing the tight sound. It is  more the production of a  song, because rhythm is  probably at least as Important as tone and pitch.  Few .biologists believe  that animals actually have  a language of the kind and  complexity used by man.  Most animals, though ��� at  least the more intelligent  species ��� do talk to one another   by  various means.  A common example of  animal "talk" car. be seen  in the dog. Its language is  sometimes through sounds,  growling and many kinds of  barking -_ but also is  through other means, such  as panting or "laughing,"  ritualistic wetting of trees,  sniffing here and there, etc.  Geese    In   formation  constantly, of  What they are  no one knows, but  audible changes in the talk  occur just before changes  are made in formation or  in course. It probably can  be assumed that plans for  these changes are being  revealed in advance of the  changes through some kind  of language.  The task of a good calling  instructional record, then,  is to let the learner hear  die entire song in all of  its important (for hunting)  variations.  A duck hunter, for instance, wants to know not  only the "highball" but the  "comeback and the feeding "chi-Ckle."  Another example is in  predator calling where the  calling  should imitate the  sound of the death struggle  of a small animal. Obviously the call starts at a high  pitch and declines eventually to a wimper. but one  must hear it to get the idea.  Ideally a game calling  record will present its instruction in such a way to  allow the learner to practice on his call right along  with the instructor. And a  really good record gives  tips on other facets of hunting, too.  And aside from their  value as a source of instruction to the novice,  game calling instructional  records have another use.  They can serve as a source  of reference through the  years' to the experienced  caller who might from time  to time brush up on his  skills*  new a  One of the most welcome  additions to the list of items  that have caught up with the  modern evolution of  graphic arts is the manufacturer* s catalog.  A good example is the  new 1969 catalog from the  Remington Arms Company,  Inc., on Remington sporting arms and Remington  and Peters ammunition.  The cover of the newcata-  log looks like the introduction to a collection of  fine, outdoor art prints.  And, in fact, it is a  beautiful waterfowl print  itself, in full color, by  outdoor artist Bob Kuhn.  comparison of the head  in question, using the factors mentioned, will help  you determine whether you  should take the shot or pass  it up for a bigger trophy.  In short, know a little  about the quarry you seek,  especially if you are not  familiar with this type of  hunting. If It's your once-  in-a-lifetime hunt, you  can't afford to make any  mistakes.  The novice big game  hunter also must remember that he will be limited  to one, perhaps two, animals, depending upon local  laws. He'll have to be selective, passing up many  opportunities until the one  he thinks he wants presents  itself.  When it does, he can't  afford an error in judgment. The time to clear  up any question about  trophy heads is before you  leave home not when the  animal is staring at you  through the other end of a  telescope.  Nannies off limits  to goat hunters  The Fish and Wildlife  Branch has included a billies-only season for Mountain Goars in its hunting  regulations this year.  The season, which will  precede the any-sex goat  s e a s o n in Management  Area 11 (East KoOtenay),  will run from September 13  until October 10 and is  being instituted on an experimental basis in only  this one area to determine  whether such management  is practical for goat herds  which are in easily accessible areas. A similar season has been carried out  in Colorado for the past  three years. The billies-  only season was considered  as an alternative to total  closure.

DEALERS  . (continued from page 1)  A hunter can do little  by himself to ensure that  access to hunting grounds -  on lands primarily as-,  signed to some other use  is kept open. Nor is his  one voice likely to influence legislators to make  an investment of public  money in the resource. No  matter how highly he regards wildlife and ail the  other factors that give  him enjoyment in the outdoors, he can do almost  nothing to change attitudes  that have simply accepted  the continuing erosion of  natural values as the price  of progress.  But the hunter need not  be alone. There is an  organization whose prime  purpose is to ensure the  wise management of fish \  and wildlife, parks, and  outdoor recreational resources! it is the B.C.  Wildlife Federation, most  effective conservation organization in Canada. The  Federation concerns itself  with all resource development, rather than wildlife  alone.  Federation   members  realize     we must    have  Butane tighter  a hunger's must  One of the best items the  outdoorsman can carry is  a lighter fired hy butane  gas, according to the woods  experts both here and elsewhere. In fact foresters  have put their stamp of  approval on Ronson's  Varaflame Windlite modeL  They maintain that the  greater control of the flame  puts it in a preferred class  by itself. As for matches,  they'd rather have you rub  two sticks together over  tinder than have you carry  them in the woods.  Ronson, pioneers in the  field of gas-fired items of  every kind, have really  backed up the forest industry.  Hunters who plan to camp  on rangeland or .in the  woods this fall, should look  at the butane-fired cook-  stoves and midget heaters  on the market. They are  one of the best how-to-be  popular-with-the-landown-  er camp accessories to be  found.  New map shows  logging roads  The Provincial Government has recently published a map of access roads  on the north-end of Vancouver Island involving  roads built by five or more  forest companies. These  maps are obtainable from  the Queen's Printer, Victoria, B.C.  Maps and access instructions including times  of opening, lists of campsites, picnic sites, and boat  launching facilities may be  obtained from many of the  companies concerned.  B.C.'s forest industry  expects around 100,000  hunters to use the 7000  miles of road open to them  this season, according to  Gordon Draeseke. president of the Council of Forest Industries.  These areas would be inaccessible to hunters and  other recreatlonists if if  were not for the primary  industrial roads opening the  land for logging. Yet for the  record we expect about  100,000 hunters will use  company access roads during the 1969 season," he  said.  economic. development to  fill our material needs, but  they flrmlybelieve that we  can safeguard our wildlife  and outdoors at the same  time. Through its publications, press, radio and  television, the Federation  has made British Columbians more aware of the  value of our outdoor resources. Through studies,  briefs, resolutions, public  hearings, liaison with other  resource users, the Federation has advanced the  conservationists' viewpoint, and has become  recognized as a strong,  responsible body speaking  for cooperation between all  resource users.  The current public a-  wareness of the dangers of  pollution is one indication  of the Federation's success  in re-aching both the public  and politicians.  It was Federation  members who^kept alive  the idea of preserving and  developing the Duck Lake  area near Creston for  waterfowl, and now the  Creston Wildlife Management Area is a reality.  The Federation helped  shape a new Wildlife Act  that gave the Fish and  Wildlife Branch, a legal  right to hold land and  manage it for wildlife.  Publicity given the Rocky  Mountain bighorn' sheep  die off and the plight of  the California bighorn by  the Federation played a  large part in acquisition  of critical winter ranges.  Representations to government made with ranchers  have brought about better  recognition of the needs  of wildlife in grazing programs.  Access to ranchlandsfor  the hunter has been retained    through access programs     worked out with  cattlemen and many other  rural lands have been kept  open to the huiiter through  ^hunting with permission"  posting. Access programs  negotiated with the forest  industry     have opened  thousands     of acres    of  forests on Vancouver Island,  To date over 16,000  young people have successfully completed the firearms safety training  course given through Federation member clubs,  schools, and organizations'  throughout the province.  Basic support for the  B.C. Wildlife Federation  comes from fish and game  clubs throughout the province.

These Brittany  Spaniels are among the more popular breeds at present,  combining the close-in work of the spaniel and the  staunch pointing habits of the setter.  Shorter days and a  certain crispness in the  evening air are already  stirring a mounting awareness in sportsmen ��� the  hunting seasons are coming.  And if you sense the  change in the air, you're  not alone. Your dog needs  no calendar to tell him what  time of year it is. Lower  temperatures seem to multiply his energy and the  breeze itself tells him a  story. Watch him lift his  nose in the early morning  sorting out scents from the  field like a gourmet sampling a grand buffet.  ' when you hunt with a dog,  you are twice blessed,  because there's no question  that this will add greatly  to both your enjoyment of  the sport and your success  as welL But before you  turn your four-footed radar  set loose in the field. It's  only fair and wise to give  him ! the tune-up he deserves for top performance.  For example, a dog tliat  has been confined to a  kennel or limited run all  summer should be given a  chance to tone his muscles  and develop his stamina  before being asked for a  hard day's hunt* At least  a month or so before hunting starts, try to get him  out for a run of fifteen to  twenty minutes a day, and  an hour or two on weekends. This is really all he  needs to harden up and  crank the cobwebs out of his  system.  During this fall training  tune-up, you should also  spend time reviewing the  basic obedience commands. While no more than  ten minutes a day need be,  or should be, devoted to this  phase of your partnership,  ��� it is important. A dog in the  field that won't sit,; stay,  heel or come when commanded can be more of  a   headache   than a help.  And though you don't want  a fat field dog, make sure  his diet matches his increased activity. Just the  cold weather alone will  enlarge his fuel needs.  Another good practice is  to add a good tablespoon-  ful or two of lard to his  daily winter ration. If he's  picked up some summer  pounds, however, let him  trim down to good running  weight before upping his  feed.  Finally, if he hasn't seen  the vet for a year, this is  the most appropriate time  for a complete check-up.  A healthy dog hunts better.  So will you, incidentally,  when he's running point for  the party.  The B.C. Fish and Wildlife Branch hunter training  program graduated its first  students in February, 1969.  The objectives of the program are.-  To teach the fundamentals of wildlife management,  conservation, and sportsmanship. This involves  learning about, game laws  and .regulations, identifa-  cation of wild species, the  value of habitat, and kindred subjects.  To emphasize the sportsman's responsibility to  farmers and land-owners,  and to foster good relations  at all times when aJjeld.  To instruct in the safe  handling of ail types of  firearms.

Once a gun has been in  the field for a period of  time, however, opportunities for minor changes or  improvements frequently  become apparent.

ESI  HUNTERS* SUPPLEMENT  SEPTEMBER 10.  1969  a-_��_sm_  safes  BOB" HOBBS  by R.M. "Bob" Hobbs* _    -  The selection of the right rifle calibre is becoming  downright confusing. Remington list 46 calibres in their  latest catalogue starting with the .218 Bee and finishing  with the .458 Winchester. This list does not include the  Weatherby line, popular European calibres, or any of  the    wildcat    cartridges.  There are literally hundreds of calibres available  to suit every type\of game  from   rats   to   rhino  and  elk  to   elephant. To    be  completely    equipped for  any contingency, how many  rifles does a man   need?  My   answer   is  four, but  before I say why let's have  a look at what can be done  with just one rifle, and the  advantage, if any to owning  a couple dozen.  If I were to be allowed  only one rifle for all hunting there is no doubt about  the calibre I would choose  - the .30/06. That was the calibre of the first big game  rifle i ever owned, and had harsh economics limited  me to that single rifle I still would haye made out all  right while on the three continents that I have hunted.  The O-Six barks a little too loudly when you touch off  a 110 grain bullet at 3370 f.p.s. at a crow, and the 150  grain bullet at 2970 is not quite as flat as some of the  newer Magnums, but the 180 grain bullet at 2700 f.p.s.  is an ideal moderate range load for all North American  game and the majority of African game, only the\thick  skinned species excepted. The 220 grain bullet at 2410  tp.s. and 2830 foot pounds of energy might not have all  the knock-down power of a .338 Winchester, but it is  still a safe and adequate load for Kodiak bear. The  .30/06 is not an ideal calibre for the smaller game,  nor for the largest, but it will do an adequate job  throughout. The greatest trophy hunter of ail time, Grancel  Fitz, was successful in having his name recorded in the .  Boone and Crockett Records for every species of North  American big game. This fantastic achievement required  a lifetime of hunting and a vast expenditure of funds.  The cost of a rifle or two could not have mattered one  iota, but Crancel Fitz used only a .30/06 for all of his  trophies.  * * *   '  Fortunately for those of us who admire guns as  works of art and the epitome of man's development  of tools that have made him unique, there is no limit  on the number of guns that you can own. You can own  a whole rackful of fine rifles. To justify this revered  collection of. fine weapons a lot of hunters point to this  rifle as their moose rifle, that one for e\kt still another  for coyotes, and so on. Surely each calibre was designed  to do a certain job well, but if the collection includes  combinations like a .30/06 and .308 Winchester, a .243  Winchester and a .25 Roberts, a .270 Winchester and a  .280 Remington, ..... then the owner should 'fess up  and admit he owns all those guns because he likes guns.  To hunt the world over I would select four calibres;  the .22 rim fire, 6m.m. Remington, .270 Winchester,  and the .375 Holland and Holland Magnum. These four  rifles would all have rubber butt pads, quick detachable,  sling. swivels, - and *24* inch barrels. The .22 would have  a full size stock, carry a 4X scope, and weigh 7 pounds.  The 6 m.m. Remington would spoyt either a 6X scope  or a 3X-9X variable, and with its stiff, heavy barrel  it would weigh just over ten pounds. The.270 Winchester  would weigh 7 1/2 pounds complete with a 4X scope and  a full magazine. The .375 Holland and Holland Magnum  would weigh 9 1/2 pounds bare with its express type  open sights, 14 ounces heavier when it wears the variable  1.5X-4.5X scope that it is also fitted with. This selection  leaves out some fine calibres, but if someone will loan  me a .458, I'll attempt to defend myself!  ' The .22 rim fire may be the only one of the four  that would receive majority acceptance with no  argument. It is not only a matter of the .22's suitability  for taking small game, fur bearers, and pests, but also  important is its role in acquiring and maintaining marksmanship. Its the easiest to learn with, the most accurate,  the cheapest to shoot. That's a combination that J s  unbeatable. I never plink with a .22. Every 6hot is fired  with the most complete concentration I can muster.  Thanks to the .22 and a minimum of five cartons of long  rifles I fire annually I haven't lost a big game animal  for many years.   ,  The next rifle in the line-up, the 6 m.m. Remington,  is the ticket for coyotes, crows, antelope, and ground hogs.  It could be used very nicely for deer, too, except that  our next rifle in the line-up, the .270, is a better deer  rifle. I selected this calibre with a heavy barrel, so its  not as portable as it could be. Where I use a 6m.m. there  are no hills and no more than a reasonable amount of  walking so the extra weight is an investment in accuracy.  ' Canada rnay not have any wild turkeys, but a lot of  domestic birds can be won at turkey shoots with a straight  shooting 6 m.m.  ,    * * *  My third choice is ,the .270 Winchester. It was  introduced ��� in 1925, and more recently Introduced  cartridges have been getting the publicity. It is still  my choice for most North American game; deer, elk,  sheep, goat, and black bear. The selection is based on a  four rifle battery, if for any reason there were only  three rifles in the battery I would likely use the 7 m.m.  Remington Magnum. In this case, though, we can leave  the Kocilaks, grizzly, and moose to .375 H & H, and the  .270 can be selected for its advantages over the belted  Magnums. The .270 is a tremendous long range rifle,  mostly  because it has little -recoil and this makes for  good  shooting.  # * _ k<  Our next rifle in ihe line-up is a Magnum, the  venerable .375 Holland and Holland Magnum. This is the;  back-up rifle of the Alaska brown bear guides, the all  round rifle for Africa. It is the heaviest rifle that can be  Justified for North American big game, and the lightest  rifle that may legally be used for elephant in Kenya.  The hefty 9 1/2 pound weight of ihe rifle helps minimize  recoil, so does the thick recoil pad. To further eliminate  recoil effect the absolute minimum of shooting in  sighting and practice is done from the. prone position or  off the bench. Recoil effect is drastically reduced from ,  the sitting and kneeling positions, and these positions  are completely practical for tlie larger dangerous  game that Is shot at reduced ranges. The .270, as you  recall, in the long range rifle. The free recoil of the  .270 is 14.8 foot pounds, the .375 delivers 33.6 foot  pounds. This is double ihat of a .30/06, but only half  that of a .458, The .375 shoots a 300 grain bullet at  2550 f.p.s., developing 4330 foot pounds of energy, and  a 270 grain bullet at 2740 f.p.s. If you are going to  Africa many problems are vastly simplified by taking  only one rifle, and if you take only one rifle the .375  Is the only choice. The .270 would be welcome for the  smaller game, but Africa's short ranges enable the use  of a .375 which shoots through the smaller antelope  with no expansion and little damage.  By Jim Harrison  British Columbia moose  hunters have a lot. of territory to choose from, but  it looks as if the best spot  of all this year should be  the Peace River country.  A glance at the hunter  questionnaire returns published by the Fish and Wildlife Branchtells the story.  While returns are not  yet available for the 1968  season, the pattern should  not be much changed from  1967, when an estimated  51.5 percent of the hunters  shot a moose'in Management Area 28 (Peace River)  and an additional 4.1 perT  cent shot two.  This puts the Peace  River region well up on the  list of the best moosehunt-  ing regions inNorth America, and the good access,  makes it even more attractive. The area is served by a good highway  system, and there is also  an abundance of side roads  to make hunting easy.  Of course, a good many  hunters never get as far as  the side roads since they  are lucky and bag their  animal right along side a  main highway.  However, Management  Area 28 does not hold a  lock on good moose hunting.  Rigbt.be_.ind in 1967 was  Management Area 26 (At-  lin-Stikine) where an estimated 54.8 percent of  hunters got a moose despite a one-animal limit.  Close behind was Management Area 21 ( Finlay-  Parsnip) where 43.1 percent of the hunters bagged  one moose and a further  5.6 percent shot two.  Other relatively-good  areas were Management  Area 9. (Big Bend) with a  47.9 percent success rate,  Followed by Management  Area 22 (Stuart-Nechako)  x with 46.5 percent andMan-  agement Area 12 (Wells  Gray) with a 45.3 percent  rate of success. Management Area 27 (Liard) also  showed up well\with a 45.1  percent- success rate.  The worst moose hunting area turned out to be  Management Area 23  (North Coast) where only  18,4 percent of moose hunters succeieded in bagging  ananimaL  Because many hunters  chose the more-accessible  Management Area 22 over  Management Area 28  Stuart-Nechako ended up  equal with the Peace River  region in terms of total  hunter harvest of animals.  An estimated 3294 moose  were taken in Management'  Area 22, as compared with  an estimated 3283 animals  in Management Area 28.  Next i n\, line was Management Area 20 (Upper  Fraser) which logged an  estimated 2753 animals.  The above figures should  not be regarded as absolute,  however, since they were  based upon Fish and Wildlife Branch questionnaires  returned by hunters at the  close of the 1967 season.  About 20 percent of moose  hunters were sampled, and  predictions were made on  the basis of their replies.  The  survey  thus never  producesahsolutely precise  answers, but the estimates  always fall within fairly  narrow limits of accuracy.  Some persons tend to  question the validity of the  procedure, since the results are based solely on  hunter replies (and some  hunters are liars), but the  answers are generally of  good quality and the results  of the survey are remarkably similar, in pattern  from year to year.  In any case, the hunter.  sample remains the only  way the Fish and Wildlife  Branch can determine the  size of the harvest in each  Management Area. And  without these estimates,  moose management in the  province would be considerably less sophisticated  than it is.  For instance, ever since  antlerless seasons were  introduced in the mid-  1950* s, the cry has been  raised annually in some  quarters that moose populations are on their way  to extinction. The same  cry, of course, has been  ' raised repeatedly for deer,  elk, mountain goats, and  just about anything else that  hunters chase in-the fall.  There is some justification for worrying about  mountain goats, which by  reason of their biology are  quite vulnerable to hunters.  Despite the fact that they  live in rugged country,  goats are accessible to  those who don't mind a hit  of climbing. And once hunt-  ers reach goat country,  they stand a pretty fair  chance of bagging one.  This would be no problem  except for the fact that  goats appear to exist in  close balance with their  environment, and that disturbance by hunters can  upset this balance considerably. They do not appear  to have the resiliency that  many other wild cloven-  hoofed .animals possess,  and so they do not bounce  back from over-hunting as  readily.  Mountain sheep of course  fall into a similar category,  and it may be that elk do as  well, although not to such  an extent.  Experiments whereby  hunters have tried to eradicate deer from areas  throughout the world have  normally ended, in absolute  failure unless the area was  extremely small. In New  Zealand, for Instance, the  government wished to wipe  out red deer (similar p  our elk) which had been  introduced by sportsmen  but which ended up destroying native vegetation. But  despite the use of poison,  professional hunters, and  a bounty system, red deer  remained a pest and in  many areas continued to  Increase in numbers.  The pattern is probably  similar for moose in this  province, and the harvest  estimates have borne this  out.  Moose hunters have en-  Joyed continually-increasing harvests since the harvest estimates were begun  in 1*?50. These increased  harvest s have resulted  from   the   liberalizing  of  hunting seasons and because hunters are now willing and able to travel  further afield to get their  animals.  And these increased harvests cannot have harmed  the populations, since the  harvests have traditionally  been composed mainly of  mature males despite the  fact that bulls form a minority in the population. If  hunting were having an important effect upon population, the proportion of  mature males should have  decreased markedly since  they were being taken at  a greater rate than other  classes of animals.  There has been very  little evidence of such a  change anywhere in the  province, despite the fact  that moose populations  have declined in-some  areas such as tlieCariboo-  Chilcotin,'  So hunters are presently  riding the crest, and it  seems likely that the pace  should continue for the next  few years. In fact, it may  even pick up.  For the present season,  providing hunters are willing to go reasonably far  afield, prospects' look  bright.  The central and northern  parts of the- province experienced one of their most  favorable winters on  record last year as far as  moose   were concerned.  This was in marked contrast, of course, to the  southern part of the province, which took a beating  from snow.  But if prospects look  good for 1969, they look  even better for the future.  For the pulp mills have  reached central and north-  central British Columbia  in a big way, and that can  only mean good for both the  moose and the hunters.  Wild geese have been  known to live to the ripe  old age of 70.  i  T.  ,m_r'->  ��� - * -��� f ��� -  "�����.!*��-���;* *_ r* *-.

From Walburn Creek  it is possible to reach Barn-  field by following the trail  and the seashore.  The section of trail that  has been opened is passable  but very rough.

The  grizzly, too may be found in a variety of hues.  One widely held fallacy about bears concerns their  winter sleeping habits. Bears do not hibernate in the  true sense of the term, with characteristically lowered  heart beat and body temperature. Most do, however,  den up and take a long winter snooze. But the male  polar bear, except for occasional naps, spends the  entire winter on the constant prowl for food. -   "  Neither do bears emerge from their winter sleep  lean and starved. They still have plenty of lard aboard  when they awake, and it's during the following month,  when they eat. lightly, that the remaining store of fat  is burned up.  Another curiosity about bears is the birth of the cubs  during the sow's winter sleep. Blind, hairless and weighing  less than a pound at birth, the cubs will have more than  quadrupled their weight by the time the old girl stirs  to springes alarm clock.  All bears are omnivorous and will eat virtually  anything, including each other on occasion. In fact,  one of the bear's favorite diets ��� honey and all types  of berries ��� has afflicted him with a malady common  to man, cavities. Consequently, his frequently bad  disposition may sometimes be caused by nothing more  than a toothache.  Bears are ail excellent fishermen. They don't,  however, slap fl6h up on the bank with their paws but  seize them in the water with their jaws. German folklore  ascribes the bear's ridiculously skimpy tall to his love  for fish. A fox, the stqry goes, once persuaded him to  fish with it through a hole in the Ice and, as a result, it  froze off. \  Polar bears are also remarkable swimmers and have  often been found at sea miles from any land or ice floes.  , Unlike browns, blacks and grizzlies, though, polar bears  , have extremely keen eye-sight. All have noses that would  make a hound dog jealous.  Man has long used the bear as a symbol. Reportedly  the practice by early California���, of chaining grizzly  bears to fight a maddened bull led Horace Greeley to  coin the Wall Street terms 'bull' and 'bear.' And the  famous symbol of the U.S. Forest Service, 'Smoky the  bear,' was an actual cub rescued from a New Mexico  \ forest fire in 1951.  Without question, the great bruin is interesting.  Let's hope civilization allows him to stay with us in  fact as well as fiction.

Forever departed  was tlie exhilerating opportunity to spend a weekend crouched in a fir  bough leantp while the rain  made mud out of the camp-  fire. Jack has a point, and  there is considerable nostalgia woven into his remembrance of the glory  days of roughing it.  The past has a way of  burying itself however, and  a new breed of outdoors-  man has appeared on the  horizon   in    considerable  numbers. The fact that the  female of the  species is  now a* large and vocal part  of the category known as  'outdoorsman'    has   done  much to change the whole  ritual of wilderness camping. The little woman can't  take ail the credit for those  changes though. Anthropologists   like   to point out  that survival in the wilderness was a man's game  as far back as Adam - and  that it still is a    man's  game.  What has happened is that  big cities and big populations have driven the wilderness areas farther and  farther     away  from   our  doorsteps. The time when  a man could pick up his  trusty weapon,   whistle up  his dog,  and take off on  foot for a few days in the  bush,      is   now part    of  Canada's mythology. When  the wilds backed up a little  a horse solved the problem.  Later on, the Model T could  get you into  some pretty  good country if you brought  along extra gas and a spare  tire or two. However, when  , you got to the end of the  trail or what passed for a  road, you were back to the  same     old game bedding  down on balsam tips, cooking on an open fire, and  risking, damage from chill  winds in the absence of an  outhouse   or   flush' toilet.  Men don't mind that sort  of thing. Most women do.  With the kind of evidence  confronting us these days,  I begin to  wonder if   we  males enjoy the 'survival  in the wilderness bit* as  much as we say. Sit on the  edge of any highway and  watch them  roll by:   the  thirty   foot   land     yachts  complete with flower pots  in die  windows;  the car,  trailer,     rooftop   boat,  motorbike     combinations;  the car, trallered boat, tent  combinations.     Men    are  driving  these things. Men  are  pausing at the end of  an   arduous   day   in    the  wilderness,  washing    and  shaving   in   a  chromium-  trimmed bathroom before  crossing to the bar to mix  a couple of strength restorers. After that they'll  spend     a  tough    evening  watching the weather re-   ���*  -t  t--������ ��� ��� ji  i        1 . *"  **   ����� /-V"_>       11  s  ��_��  -l.  ���-*  A  Co-^   <*    k*/  V  K  .V  A camper like this, specially designed for mounting  on the Datsun pickup becomes the outdoorsman's comfortable home away from home.

Cutn  ports on TV while they sort  out their fishing tackle and  adjust the fine tuning on  their electronic fish finders. Outside the wind is  heard faintly whimpering  around the aluminum eaves  of their 'leanto'.  I've got to side with Jack  Scott when he looks down  his nose at this new breed  of cheechakos. At the same  time I contend that there  is a happy medium to be  considered. There's no  denying that it takes longer  to travel to good fishing  or hunting these days. Most  of us have got to get there  and back on a weekend and  there is considerable logic  in having a camping rig  thar gets you into the back  of beyond in a hurry and  eliminates the need to have  to pitch camp in the pitch  dark.  People like Nissan have  hit on a good thing. Take  the Datsun pickup-camper  combination, for instance.  For a modest investment  the outdoorsman can overcome the time factor, drive  in safety and sleep in comfort.   The idea is so good  that   Datsun  sells     more  pickup     trucks than     all  other truck imports combined   in North  America.  Trailer and camper manufacturers have hastened to  design    campers for   the;  trim little pickup, and they  have   done   a   first-class  job. Companies like Capl-  lano and Kenco are turning  out   fully-insulated campers capable of sleeping up  to four adults in absolute  comfort.   Miniature kitchens complete with propane  stoves,   refrigerators and  running water with a generous built-in water supply  are all standard features.  So is a chemical toilet.  For those who like to do  things their own way,  camper kits are available  on the market ready for  final assembly, or a good  camper can be 'custom  constructed' at home using  plywood, aluminum and  a certain amount of imagination and ingenuity.  Ottawa aids  trap shooters  Department of National  Health and Welfare's Fitness and Amateur Sport  funds have given considerable "assistance to target  and trapshooters, according to a departmental  spokesman.  Stanley Spicer, in a reply  to a query from this newspaper, replied]  "Since 1962, nearly  $49,000 has been granted  to the Shooting Federation  of Canada for such purposes as administrative  assistance, holding national championships, sending  competitors to world  championships and holding  special Centennial events  during 1967. On at least  one occasion, trapshooters  were specifically assisted  in travelling to a world  championship.  "A number of current  requests for funds, including one from the Shooting  1 Federation, are now under  consideration but no decision has yet been made."  fatedml tek��e serwes b&th puhlk ��f Mrds  By   Suzanne   Westphal  The western tip of West-  ham Island, in the municipality   of Delta,     British  Columbia,     was once     a  lonely   place,  known only  to duck hunters and fishermen.

Prante  Our horses fairly steamed with sw$at as they  climbed the steep slope  to Juniper Ridge. Breaking  through the knee-deep'  crust of spring snow, (  Gypsy, my saddle mare,  snorted nervously when she  came to cross a fresh bear  track but she followed Pat  Wright's big Appaloosa  gelding and finally scrambled out of the timber onto  the grassy windswept  rtdge.  Pat halted and stepped  down. Turning to Ken  Bostock and myself he said;  "Anytime now, and we  should see your California  bighorns. They like to  graze in the windshade of  this ridge. Keep your eyes  open."  Then,   as if surprised  he pointed to a patch of  pasture sage fifty   yards  downhill. "There they are,  see 'era?"  Ken and I dismoiinted.  hurriedly.  "Take it easy," Pat  whispered, "go slow or  you'll Y spook the whole  bunch clean into Washington State. Get your gear  and come along." He dropped his horse's reins to the  ground and sneaked ahead.  I wiped my eyes for the  umpteenth time to see the  sheep but the icy winds  caused them to water con-y  tinuously. How*d Pat see  anything in this wind, I  pondered, then Ken poked  me in the ribs from behind and pointed bis finger  too.  Suddenly the sheep popped from the tall sage.  They stood still for just  a moment and then milled  about their dark chocolate-brown and fully curled  ram; their leader it seemed. I counted quickly to  eighteen.  "Wow!" Ken whispered  hoarsely, "What a selection of rams. Too bad the  season isn't open just  yet."  Some of the younger and  lighter colored rams pushed their way forward  through the bunch to get  a; better glimpse at. ys,  then they backed off quickly. Only two heavy horned  rams stood their ground  near the leader as if to  stare us down.  Great haste  I snapped a few pictures  in great haste, then the  sheep poured down the  slope into the timbered  canyon below.  ''Well! What'd you say  to that? Pat asked. "Get  any good pictures?',  "Don't really know yet,"  I answered, "they kind of  surprised me."  Well, don't take it too  hard partner, they kind of  surprised a few other  people besides you, To  catch 'em unawares' like  trying to kiss a duck's  cheek without gettin' feathers in your mouth.  Pat operates a ranch and  guiding outfit near Princeton, B.C. and since he'd  previously squired many  prominent sportsmen and  women including Queen  Elizabeth 11 -- I just knew  that he Is a good and  trustworthy guide. I also  knew he'd probably be too  busy during hunting season  to take me but. Then he  truly surprised me when  he called at my home In  Port Coquitlam, saying he  .oc  had a little time to spare  and would I like to ride  with him to scout for sheep  in the A shnola River watershed in the Okanagan Mountains and perhaps take a  few pictures of sheep.  , Being self employed,  operating a boat repair  business in Vancouver,  B.C.," I made time available. Ken Bostock, Pat's  friendof Princeton, B.C.,  had come along for the  ride.  That afternoon in our  lean-to camp on Flatiron  Mountain I couldn't resist  probing some more.  "Couldn't you just spare  Old Gypsy for the ten day  season in September?" I  asked.  "Probably," he replied,  grinning as usual, "but  don't you forget, come  September and the hunters,  these here rams'll probably be twenty miles away.  Maybe even across the  border In Washington  State."  Further Information  l^ater, during that Summer I gathered further  information. I checked with  the B.C. Fish and Wildlife  Branch, and then with every  sheep hunter I knew. .-'I  checked the Bdorie and  Crockett records too and  found not one sheep from  our California bighorn  ranges entered. But I also  learned that only a precious  1500 to 2000 heads of this  species exist in the world  today and that the Ashnola  watershed with its approximate four hundred head  population is one of the  better and more important  ranges for the species.  Dave Spalding, a biologist  with the Wildlife Branch  told me that perhaps a  maximum number of  seventy-five legal heads  may be hunted there.  By legal heads he meant  that rams must have three-  quarter curl or larger  horns to be taken but that  had seemed immaterial at  first. Surely, I thought,  I'll recognize a trophy ram  when I see him.  Then came my first real  hunt. Of course Pat had  packed my gear and myself  right into the middle of the  best sheep country. On the  third day of the t hunt I  found a handsome ram. He  lead five smaller brothers  single-file through an old  burn. It was such a simple,  such a perfect situation.  The rams trotted past me  at a hundred paces, I took  careful aim and unhooked  the round from my 30/06.  Swinging the rifle with the  ram my bullet hit the dry,  upturned root of a Pond-  erosa pine.  Later, that night when  I told of my misfortune Pat  just smiled. "Keep on  i tryin' old partner," he  said, "Old Gypsy isn't so  old that she couldn't ride  you around for a few more  seasons.   With  some real  food tryin' and a deal of  uck you might just catch  up 'with that sneaky ram.  He didn't even run faster,  when you fired, huh?"        i  it's the truth, i thought,  but how does he know all  these things.  Beside gatheiring practical sheep hunting experience I also met other  dedicated hunters. The  following     day  I watched  when      Dick   Nlckell    of  Wenatchee,      Washington,  killed a beautiful ram with  one long shot. He had  surprised the ram on the  open South Slope of Flatiron  Mountain, a mile and a half  from our camp. The beast  made- tracks for the creek  bottom. Dick piled off his  horse threw himself prone  to the ground and fired.  His bullet hit the ram in  the back of the head and  killed him instantly.  Too, I had hunted and  talked with Richard Dimick  of Canyondam, California^  who told me that his state  protects its few bands  native sheep. "You can't  hunt them there," he said,  British Columbia is the,  only place with open seasons."  of   Copenhagen,  v, who now lives in  ^"������������('������"W*1*!'1*'^"*******^^  Then I met Ole Hanson  formerly  Denmark  Vancouver and is a friend  of Pat Wrights'. Ole had  hunted the Californians for  a number of seasons. One  night he came back to our  camp in a state of exhaustion. He nearly fell off his '  horse, then he planted himself, by the fire and practically refused to eat his  supper.  This was strange behavior for Ole, he usually  displayed a healthy appetite.  "I don't know what .the  trouble is," Ole said,  "something must be wrong  with my rifle."  "What's wrong with it?"  Alec probed gently with  sympathy in his voice.  "I think it shoots   too  low,"   Ole   replied,  "and  too   high,   and   too  much,  to   the  right  and  to the  left."  "That's good," Alec  replied dryly, "you might-  've shot the one I'm looking for."  Last-minute jobs  Then the 1967 season  came along. I hurried  through all my last-minute  rush-jobs, closed my shop  again and drove the two-  hundred fifty odd miles to  the Ashnola again. It was  dark on my arrival, Pat  and his party had already  gone. He had left a big  roan horse for me,Ytied  to a tree. A note was pinned  to the saddle explaining  that Old Gypsy would be  waiting for me at the camp  but, that Harry (the horse)  could carry me and my  gear much better.  With the dawn still below  the horizon I slipped into  my boots and saddled the  horse. Harry was most  reluqtant to leave his alfalfa hay; he might have  remembered the previous  season and the steep trail  to the sheep range.  It was nearly ten a.m.  when I reached the camp.  All my riding muscles  urged a rest. A note on  the cold coffee pot explained that Pat and my  partners-to-be would hunt  the Joe Lake area for a  couple of days but "...We'll  be back. Make yourself at  home."   I   moved  on up.  I hadn't seen any rams  on the open slope grazed  a dozen ewes and lambs.  The heatwaves sorely  tried my vision but I  searched on. Suddenly a  young, buckskin colored  ram bolted from a patch  of golden shivering aspen  A big brown ram ran after  him; when the young ram  stopped the big one bumped  a*'Nh__l__MM_aa<M-M_____M__tf-_k_Mh_M-Ml*^^a--^^^t.

The big one  backed off again to look  about. His massive horns  looked great. The young'  ram's peelage showed up  well, his sickle horns left;  no doubt about his tender  age. He couldn't have been,  more than three years old.  The big ram's forehead  showed almost white in  contrast to the chocolate  brown of his hide. I'll never  get him, I thought, he'll  be long gone before I can  get into shooting range;  he is nearly a mile away.  Feverishly I searched  my pockets for a copy of  the Game Regulations.  Feeling silly and foolish  I unfolded it before me on-  the ground. I found what I  was looking for - the illustration of a legal-sized  ���"ram."'"'  The ram had resumed  his feeding, he was slowly  moving about. I found  another solid rest for the  rifle and held the cross  wires on the ram's ear;  like the illustration shdwY  ed.

Just as the recoil set in,  I saw him crumble and  fall. My rifle had done its  part well.  My (trophy was beautiful; no record-breaker to  be sure, my tape showed  one horn to be just over  thirty-two inches long  while the other was slightly! broomed off at thirty-  one inches. Both bases are  fourteen and a quarter  inches in circumference.  Somehow it doesn't matter  how much or how little  these horns may dry and  shrink over the years,  they'll never make the book  anyhow and that^s still  alright with me. Perhaps  some other season will  produce a greater trophy  for me but until then this  regulation-size California  bighorn is my greatest  treasure ever.  Preparation* is the word  for archers before the bow  and arrow deer season  opens. It involves much  more than establishing  the shooting accuracy of  their equipment.  The serious, and most  likely successful archer  is drilling practice butts  long before the season's  opening. Once he's convinced his arrows are  flying true, he begins the  second half of his preparation, which consists of  practice shooting under  simulated field conditions.  He'll walk a wooded  course, firing at game-  faced targets from varying  distances. He'll make_ use  of a moving deer target  if one is available.' He'll  release arrows from  kneeling and crouched  positions. He'll shoot  through brush or small  openings. Perhaps - he'll  walk through a field, releasing arrows at clumps  of sod or grass.  When he's through, he'll  be ready for just about  any field situation that's  likely to confront him  during the season. He  prepares himself so meticulously for one reason.  He knows he can't afford  to miss the first shot.  The gun hunter, be he  rifleman or shotgun shooter, enjoys a feeling of  greater confidence in this  regard. His firearm Is not  as limited as the archer's  in accuracy and distance.  As any experienced deer  hunter will tell you, hitting  a deer with the first shot  is not the cinch it appears  to be. Too many yariable  factors are involved, ajid  in many cases there s'no  second chance.  The same,is true with  a scattergun. How many  bird hunters do you know  who are capable of bringing down every grouse  or pheasant they shoot  at? Had they put in a little  practice before the season  they would have increased  their chances for success.  The least a deer hunter  can do is sight in his rifle.  Most see to this basic  requirement; but that's  as far as it goes. A little  practice on a moving deer  target will pay dividends  when the action starts.  Many sporting clubs offer  this type of facility. If none  is available, try random  shots at safe and suitable  targets in the field.  In any case, don't make  the mistake of being overly  confident. Borrow a bit of  the     archer's philosophy.  Once.he feels he's mastered either sport, he  might sharpen his reflexes  further by substituting  crows or starlings as  targets. He may find he's  not the expert he thought  he was.  feres h��wt��sm��k^ ��ome  Smoking of fish and game  is an art. Smokehouses,  once used primarily for  preservation of meat, have  been replaced by deep  freezers. However, delicious flavour added to  foods by the smokehouse  can never be duplicated.  Fishermen and hunters interested in smoking their  catches will find the following suggestions and  directions helpful:  Good fresh fish and  game should be used. Any  hardwood may be used for  smoking, alder, maple,  cherry, apple, or dry corn  cobs are all good. Do not  use softwood or conifers.  Cottonwood gives an off  flavor. To test wood, burn  a piece and smell smoke.  Do not use an aluminum  container when brining.  , After building smokehouse and securing freel)  game or fish, these recipes should produce some  delicious eating.

"To insure the population of ducks required by  1980 will require a minimum of another four and  one-half million acres of  dependable wetlands over  and above the two million  now D.U. controlled.

Don't rescue young of wild animals  Fawns and other young  animals may look abandoned    when people      come  ���across;them inthe woods,  but the impulse to "rescue"      them   should    be  strongly   resisted.     This  advice was issued by Dr.  James   Hatter,     Director  of the British    Columbia  Fish and Wildlife Branch.  Wild animals face many  problems between birth and  maturity, riot the legist of  which is the danger of being  " saved'' by well- intention-  ed   but   ignorant humans.  Queen of Prince Rupert  easy route for hunters  It is common for wild  animals to leave their  young for as much as a  day .'at 7a':: tiine> and thus  even though ah animal may  appear totally abandoned,  this is rarely-the case.  Generally the mothers are  . concealed nearby and will  return to their young when  the humans depart.  Experience has shown  that young animals raised  in captivity often become  incapable of fending for  themselves in the wild, so  the "rescue" of an "abandoned" creature virtually  dooms it to a life of  captivity.  Some   of the    greatest  hunting and fishing in the  world  awaits   passengers  who  travel  the     British  Columbia   Ferrielp'   route  from Northern Vancouver  Island   to   Prince   Rupert  on   the   northwest    coast  of the province.  ,  The   modern   Queen   of  Prince   Rupert   plies   the  inside  passage from Kel-  sey Bay to Rupert.

These|rateB  permit the traveller to save  25 percent over the regular summer fares.  The trip along 300 miles  of protected waterways  takes 20 hours (overnight).  Veterans of hunting and  fishing in all parts of the  province know that if they  want to go after big ones  of all species, this area  of north central British  Columbia is the place to  vlr.it.  Of B.C.'s ten largest  lakes, five are near Highway 16, which runs from  P r 1 n c e Rupert through  Prince George to Jasper,  Alberta. Each abounds with  a variety of fiEh.  In addition there are  , nine rivers, including the  Kispiox, where the world's  laJgeBt steelhead - a magnificent 36 plus pounder  - was reeled in. Tlie  Fulton and Stellako,' considered the best fly-fishing  streams in the province,  are also in this area.  Chinook salmon abound  In the coastal waters.  Expert fishing gi-ides at  Prince Rupert and Kitimat  can practically guarantee  limit catches. Great salmon, weighing up to 50  and 60 1J>&, are* nor uncom  mon. Early fall is the time  to catch them. (  The region is particu-  lsfrly well-known for its  moose hunting. They are  found in abundance in the  whole area. Moose meat is  a staple food among many  of local residents throughout the year.  Deer are also to be found  in the  area, with elk and  mountain   sheep   at     the  higher levels. For the real  adventurer, a grizzly bear  hunt in the  river valleys  is   a thrilling experience  but it is, a specialist sport.  Many  hunters from all  parts     of the  U. S. and  Canada,  who  return time  and time again to northwestern  B.C.  to hunt and  fish, remark on the comparatively easy access to  the     hunting  and   fishing  areas that modern ferries  and good highways provide.  Not too many years ago  these areas were   sealed  off to.all but tho rich who  could afford to charter aircraft or boats to take them  in.   Today they are within  fair   reach of everybody.  '. i*  Otters return  British Columbia Fish  and Wildlife Branch have  released a number of sea  otters off the northwest  end of Vancouver Island,  the Honourable Kenneth.  Kiernan, Minister of Recreation and Conservation,  announced.  , The release, was the  first attempt to re-introduce sea otters to die  British Columbia coast.  These waters contained  thriving populations of otters when white men first  explored the coaB., but they  were rapidly decimated an  the fur trade reached its  peak.  Since that time there  have been numerous reported sightings, but they  have in all cases been  found to be the closely-  related but smaller river  oner, which often ventures  into the -ocean-  7  That the 1967-68 hunter  sample represented the  18th consecutive publication of this record of game  harvests in the Province,  and was one of the most  comprehensive surveys  undertaken ih North America?  That the Queen Charlotte  Islands contain one-of the  last healthy populations of  peregrine falcons in the  world, and a strict harvest  policy has been instituted  by the Fish and Wildlife  Branch?  That the Fish and Wildlife Branch, by surveying  various lakes and undertaking a fish-stocking program, has been able to obtain permission from logging companies for public  access to the lakes?  While watching the action  at the Grand, American  tra.-psho61 in Vandalia,  Ohio, this year, the astute  observer noticed an unusual sight in trap shooting  procedure;'''':.'Many of the  nation's top trap experts  who were shooting over/  unders used modified or  improved modified, rather  than full/choke barrels at  27 yards in the handicap  event  This would seem to be  a radical departure from  the standard practice of  shooters who have depended upon long barrels and  full chokes for the tightest  patterns possible at long  distances.  Why, then, the trend to a  more open choke in over/  under s? The modern shot-  shell with its plastic collar  is the main reason.  Today's shotgun ammunition has had a considerable influence upon  the choke patterns of shotguns, so much so, that  upland hunters need to  revise their thinking when  selecting a new gun for  a particular field use.  iThe average bird hunter,  for example, has traditionally depended upon the  modified choke for the  loose pattern he needs in  fast shooting at short  range. The ammunition he  is using now is more apt  to give him too tight a  pattern for the best results. He may find it to  his  advantage to consider  MmisMb Mmitm duke  an improved cylinder  rather than a modified  choke!  Likewise, the man seeking a tight pattern in a full  choke will do well to  consider the larger, modified or improved modified  bore. The plastic collar,  which holds the shot together longer after it  leaves the barrel, makes  the difference.  The result is a tighter  pattern   at a  longer dis  tance, thus - altering considerably the effect of a  particular barrel choke.  If the nation's top trap  shooters, who depend upon  shotshell pattern and reach  for their best scores, find  it necessary to make adjustments, upland hunters  would be wise to follow  suit.  I, -  Rattlesnal.es get a new  rattle every time they shed  their skin.  By Patrick Martin  In the hustle of modern life we are apt to pick up  catchwords and use them thoughtlessly. This applies  alike to both the professional writer and the layman. The  word CONSERVATION is one that has been bandied  around so often that it has become a catchword ��� largely  without meaning. There are many similar words -u  communist, red, reactionary, smear ��� which are used  in articles and speeches and, when examined critically,  have no real meaning. We should not allow CONSERVATION to become one of these words.  Conservation has a dictionary meaning of preserva- ,  tion but it has deeper implicatipns. Natural resources  can be divided into two different groups. There are the  wasting resources and .those that are renewable. The  former group includes such things as mineral wealth,  petroleum and so on which, when taken from the ground,  are gone forever. Renewable resources are those which  do not become depleted when wisely used. They include  ranges, fisheries, forests and wildlife. Conservation in  its true sense deals with the productivity of these things  and even goes further and can develop productivity.  While such a concept was never defined in Europe,  farmers there have certainly practiced the conservation  of soils and timber for a great many years. On this  continent it was mainly Theodore Roosevelt who crystallized "conservation through wise use" in the minds of  thinking people. There developed a Roosevelt,Doctrine  of Conservation of natural organic resources,'the main  tenets of which were:  That all outdoor resources are part of an integral  That their CONSERVATION THROUGH WISE USE is  a public responsibility, and their private ownership a  public trust.  The value of this- concept is clear. Surely no living  person will question that all natural living things bear  some relationship, either directly or indirectly, to all  other, living things and that which affects one eventually  affects the others. Men <are living things and enter into  the conservation concept as surely as do ducks and deer.  That: conservation is a public responsibility and  private ownership a public trust should be fully realized.  The public holds the resources in trust for future generations. These treasures do not belong to any one generation;  the government holds them in trust fpr all who come after.  The resources are to be husbanded zealously, I say  "husbanded" with good reason. The renewable resources  should not be allowed to rot away through neglect and  disuse but developed and brought to full flower through  management.  Those who axe private owners of natural resources  are in the same position as the public ��� only with far  more implications. What right, for instance, has a farmer  to  mine the _soil and deplete the fertility of his land?  That science is the tool through which the responsibility should be discharged is self-evident. Most farmers  today recognize that science is a valuable tool.which  can be used to advantage in developing the proSyctivity  of their lands. The same applies to game managements  Let us use the truths garnered by the research scientist  and apply them to game management.  We must dispense with the old ideas that were too  often born of predjudice and biased thinking. The use of  the scientific method is essential if we are to get  sound information on which to base valid conclusions  for use in effective management programs. T wonder  how many so-called conservation clubs started off with  such a basic doctrine? And how many were started in  desperation in order to halt the depletion of game and  fish in the district? Some 'may. 6ven''have'"b^ri'ih��ttatfe<l'''''v  ^ in order to see that nobody but the| worthy "conservers"  got the largest share of the game.

Include:  ABBOTSFORD, SUMAS & MATSGUI News  This kind of advertising  just doesn't pay off!  By John Madson  Gun thefts are on the rise. Many of the victims are  gun dealers and collectors, but most are sportsmen.  There's not much the honest, run-of-the-field hunter  and shooter can do about it except insure, take certain  precautions, and trust to luck.  Your guns may be fully covered in your home  policy under "household contentb" ��� but don't count on  it. Check with your agent to be sure. You may even  want to Insure them under a special rider. In any case,'  be sure that an exact valuation is placed on each gun,  by serial number, and that you have a full list of the  serial numbers of your gun a on file.  What can be done to keep guns from being stolen?  Little enough -- but these steps may help:  While an a hunting trip, even for the day, never  leave guns or gun cases Jn a car where they can be seen.  If you stay in a motel, always take your guns in with  you at night. A thief can spot a hunter's car a mile  away, and knows it's a treasure trove of gune, cameras  and binoculars. We know city shooters who won't even  put   .sportsmen's   club  dccals on their car windows.  If you have a gun cabinet at home, place it where  it can't be seen from the outside. Better yet, keep your  guns hidden. We know a hunter who keeps1 a full gun  cabinet stocked with * "loaner" guns as a burglar decoy  and his good guns are stashed elsewhere. A farmer  friend keeps only his. work guns at home ��� a couple  of ,22'a and an old shotgun. The rest of hie muisketB  are kept hidden with a friend In town. One of our local  trapshooters, who also lives on a farm, may rake his  best guns with him in the trunk of his car when he leaves  home for the day.  It doesn't pay to advertise. \  BURNS LAKE Lakes District News  CAMPBELL RIVER Courier  CHILLIWACK Progress  CLOVERDALE Surrey Leader  COURTENAY Comox District Free Press  CRANBROOK Courier  DAWSON CREEK Peace River Block News  DUNCAN Cowichan Leader  KAMLOOPS News-Advertiser  IADYSMITH-CHEMAINUS Chronicle  MISSION Fraser Valley Record  POWEU RIVER News  PRINCE GEORGE Progress  QUESNEL Cariboo Observer  SALMON ARM Observer  SECHELT PENINSULA Times  SIDNEY Sqanich Peninsula & Gulf Islands Review  SMITHERS Interior Hr,*%  TERRACE Omineca Herald  VERNON News  WILLIAMS LAKE Tribune  LANGLEY Advance  Distribution of tho 1969 HUNTERS* SUPPLEMENT approximates 150,000.
