 7-X1: W>V^f^\��K^^  Vast improvement . . .  We3t Canadian Graphic Industries Ltd.,  1606 West 5th Ave.,  Vancouver 9, B.C.  MEASURED  by the  number of visitors '  to the Sechelt  and District's tourist ���  bureau,   this   past   season's  venture  has  ptoved   highly  successful with  recorded  enquiries more than double that of last  year.  During the summer or 1069 a bureau  was operated from quarters in .the Sechelt  bus depot, and a total'of' 556 enquiries  were reported. This year the Chamber  ventured a step further and acquired a  smaTf trailer which was set "up complete  with sighs, adjacent to the highway at  Peninsula Motors, thus providing lots of  pull in space for visitors. As a consequence tho total Was expected to pass the  1.200 mark by September 15th at which  time it will be closed for the winter.  Figures broken down by the reveal  122 enquiries in June, 483 in July and 576  in August. Eighteen volunteers under the  guidance of Mrs. Charles Murray kept  the.bureau open six days a week and  even with this number it was not easy  due to the fact the ladies all had other  demands upon their time including taking care of visitors of their own. However, reporting at a meeting with the  Chamber executive last week, Mrs. Murray expressed the view that the project  was an outstanding success.  In her detailed report she drew attention lo the fact that approximately twenty  per cent of visitors- indicated interest in  purchasing property in the area! Almost  95 per cent had campers and a similar  number had boats with them.  Of. major importance to visitors were  ���Mf-*     ^ATf  '-WJJaWf"*���0/r*rVf*.1J^^'VfV/<AV��J(rtlW��*ai��-ll,/.��.

Hydro,  is   encountering   problems   with trigger  happy   gunmen   who   appear   to derive  restaurants, launching ramps, picnic-sites,  campsites and beach access. Other popular requests were for information on  fishing, oyster and clam beds and swimming beaches.  Sadly lacking i in the whole, area are  adequate signs: In Sechelt some confusion exists regarding the Porpoise .Bay  area where, to some, the road from the  highway to Porpoise Bay is known as  Wharf Road. Then the road branches off  to the East and West sides of the. Bay  and are each called Porpoise Bay Road.  It was also pointed out that visitors  passing through often fail to locate the  waterfront and it was felt signs should  be erected in suitable locations. Those  who did av-a.il- themselves --of'the waterfront facilities, picnic tables etc., expressed pleasure with the area. Others  who headed for Pender Harbour, not having* been there before, reported back  later that* they had passed through without locating that area. It appears they  had expected to encounter a village and  had not realized the area was split up  into small communities off the highway.  List of recommendations compiled by  tho bureau volunteers included: Display  cf maps of the Sunshine Coast on the  ferries in order that visitors might familiarize themselves with the general area  before arrival.  More government campsites or extension of the Sechelt Campsite near Roberts  Creek. It was also suggested that some  of the trees in the park be cut-down in  order that a little sunshine be permitted  to enter.  Need for launching pads, in the general area, for about 95 per cent of enquiries were for these facilities.  Benches under trees at Hackett Park  in order that elderly persons might rest  or relax.  Also, establishment of road-side rest-  rooms for the travelling public similar  to those put up in other parts by the  provincial government.  Finally, walking trails, look-out spots,  and access through to the Skookumchuk  rapids.  Chamber members agreed to approach  the various governmental departments  with a view to seeking some of the improvements suggested;  Local airline assists  marooned logging crew  a   logging  crew  Serving the Sunshine Coost, (Howe Sound to Jervis Inlet), including Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing, Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selmo Pork, Sechelt, Holfmoon Boy, Secret Cove, Pender Horbour, Madeira Park, Kleindale, Irvine's Landing.

ELPHINSTONE Secondary School has  becri granted accreditation for the  three year period, from 1970 to 1973. Accreditation, gives the school authority to  recommend students so that it is not  necessary for them to sit ihe government  examinations. ���  The school's exceptional improvement  during the past year was noted by Mr.  John Meredith, Assistant Superintendent  of Instruction, who pointed out that the  school average was above the Provincial  average.

Three planes belonging to Tyee Airways picked the men up and returned  them 'to Sechelt.  It seems their vessel had struck a  log which damaged thc propeller and put  the boat out of commission. Mr. Ted  .Osborne of Osborne Logging later took  out his own boat and towed the crew  boat in.  "la  ment examinations, showed that the  school is not over-assessing achievement  and there is no indication of over-recommending students.  COMMENDATION  .Commentjng on results obtained by  students "in*;thp^^arruary; and'Uufii^ provincial- examinations, Superintendent of  Education, Mr. F. P. Lcvirs has commended' all those concerned with tlie  results. He said that the three year accreditation may be taken as an expression of confidence that Elphinstone can  maintain acceptable  academic standards.  Mr. Lcvirs also fell that the students  and staff at Elphinstone, the school board  and its administration would be interested in knowing that the standards at  Elphinstone   compare    very    favourably  with those in all other accredited schools  in the Province.  Commenting on the letters received  from the Department of Education, Dis-_  trict Superintendent Mr. R. R. Hanna told  the School Board that something has been  done for the school and Mr. Ellwood and  his staff are to be commended.  PROTEST  Mr. and Mrs. Bud Fisher of Gower  Point and Mr. and Mrs. Phil Gross of  Sechelt have written to the School Board  protesting the levy of a 50c "caution  fee" being charged Elphinstone students  this year.  It  was stated that  thc charge  is .to  cove,r damage inflicted by students dur-  Jng^the^year.  Fatal Damage  Second motor vehicle accident within  a week on the same stretch of highway about one quarter of a mile  from Gibsons on the Langdale Highway, took the life of Geoffrey Higgs  who was travelling alone in this Nisj-  san car, badly damaged on the driver's side as it left the road in tlie  early hours of last Saturday morning.

Fa ...      ..  f  i<  ' l<     . a  Trustee Dave Ganshorn felt that ft  was not legal to levy such a fee and  that the School Board should have been  consulted  first.  Secretary Jim Metzler commented that  such a charge was common practice in  mai'-ajLsci-ii'-i^ -  Trustee Jim Hayes felt -that a locker  rental of $1 per year should be levied on  a refundable  basis.  After much discussion it was decided  the fee would be suspended and the board  would investigate thc matter further.  Students presently pay $4.50 or $5.00  text book rental, depending on grades.  $1 student council fee and a charge of  $1.50 for a combination lock, if they require one.  While fees were being discussed,  trustee Bernard Mulligr.n wondered why  Gibsons kindergarten children were being charged a S- fee this year for the  first time. \Mr. Hanna said he would investigate  the  matter:  SUBSTANTIAL increase in camper traffic on the Sunshine Coast this season  has made clear the -need for���additional  facilities. As a consequence, .Sechelt and  District Chamber of Commerce has asked  the Department of Recreation and Conservation to consider development of thc  provincial park-site at Porpoise Bay.  Replying last week, Hon. Ken Kiernan  told the Chamber*. "I am in receipt bt  your '.letter: in; which you indicated need  for camping facilities at Porpoise Bay  and also for installation of a sani-station  in this general area.  "Your comments on tlie increase in  tourist traffic reflect to a large degree  what has happened throughout the  province this year and we realize that  in many areas facilities are not entire".^  adequate  to   meet   this  sudden   increase.  "The development of camp "grounds  in Provincial Parks is undertaken on a  priority basis for the entire province and,  as such, these are only commenced after  very careful assessment of the many  factors involved.

Editor, Tho-Times,-  SiriTJpon reveling your editorial (one  set of* rules ��� .Sept. 2, 1970) which purposes to Uphold a fair and "equal to  all" approach to building bylaws, you  have in our opinion completely invalidated your point of view by including  numerous;, unnecessary, unfair, biased and  prejudical remarks regarding these so-  called bylaw violators.  Of what significance are the qualifications you have applied to these people? "American individuals", "American  hippy types", "rabble", "draftdodgers".  It would seem the first and cardinal rule  in crusading for fairness in law and law  conformity is that one shows his own fairness and objectivity. This you have totally  failed to do. Certainly, you must see  that; be these people American, Canadian  or bantu; be they hippy types, straight  types, young types or old types; be they  draft dodgers or Los Angeles dodgers,  makes absolutely no difference to the  question at hand. No matter what their  country of origin, social position, or political beliefs they are residents of this  community and have the right to be  treated. equally with "long time taxpayers" and residents.  Again, in paragraph 8, you have stated  "an element from afar entering the area  and breaking all the rules in the book"  this reveals an unbelievable attitude of  parochial mistrust of anyone from "afar"  ��� opposed to, we assume, to anyone from  right here on the Sunshine Coast. There  seems to be doubt about their having  broken the building bylaw as you suggest, but have certainly not substantiated  in any way. From this you assume that  these people are "nose thumbing at authority" and "breaking all the rules in  the book." Surely this reflects an exaggerated bias against these people,_  Furthermore your reference to "rabble" is not only tasteless but inflammatory  and falaciously derogatory.  We also could not fail to notice a  news story on the front page of the same  issue covering cases in Gibsons police  court, in which you have used the subtitle "hippy types" to describe three persons appearing to face charges. Again,  sir, do you not think that this" qualification you have made is both unnecessary  and prejudicial to a fair trial. AtAhe  time of your article these persons had  been charged and their cases remanded.  One would assume that only the name,  address and charges faced would be proper, as indeed you have limited your reporting on the other cases (all local people, save one) further in the article. Is  it therefore significant that these people  are "local" and therefore not qualified in  any terms, but "transients" are labelled  "hippy types"? Are we to assume that  all transients are hippy? What does "hippy  type" imply? The length of hair? Mode  of dress? social position? Be fair ��� you  do not label *local people as to appear-  *��ancc- or social "Standing:"*; A-'" ������������"���--  These totally unnecessary qualifications you have included in a front page  story and an editorial would certainly  seem to issue from a bigotted and prejudiced point of view which we would  have hoped had gone out with witch  hunting and the Klu Klux Klan.

An Order-in-Council was passed  by Cabinet today sotting out the regulation.  Attorney-General Leslie Peterson said  "Wc have set January 1, 1971 as the dale  after which all new motor-vehicles manufactured for sale in the British Columbia  market, must be equipped with devices  to control crankcase, exhaust and evaporation emission on gasoline powered  motor-vehicles. The regulation also provides for opacity limitations in the exhaust emissions of diesel powered heavy  duly vehicles."  The regulation covers all vehicles  which require to be licensed for highway  use. It will not effect vehicles which are  built for industrial operations, such as  forestry and mining.  Lately there have been numerous  reports of tho drastic effects of ait* pollution in many metropolitan areas  throughout the world. ���  It is apparent that many of these unhealthy air situations are aggravated by  congested traffic problems. Cities on- the  West Coast are vulnerable due to atmos*-  phere conditions which result in the inversion of air currents, these in turn work  to delay the dispersion of motor-vehicle  air pollutants.  One of the important factors concerning pollution control for motor-vehicles in  North America is that all authorities adopt  uniform standards'.. The British Columbia  Government regulation complies.with.tho  same regulations in the United Slates  Federal Standard. The Ontario Government also adopted this same standard.  In British Columbia, motor-vehicle  registrations  near  one  million  and  the  total grows at an annual rate of over six  percent, a much higher" figure than the  national average.  Attorney-General Peterson said "This  new regulation is an important stop in  the Government's programme to appreciably reduce vehicle emissions which  contribute to thc pollution problems we  face today."   a -   li nT***   '  2S  %"  SUILDB.-M*�� ?

you put into new tires for your automobile is to follow a tire rotation plan
- in usingthem^aUvrsesUTe^TCrAutomoBile
Most drivers know that tires do not
wear evenly on all wheels. Common wear
losses are 40 per cent on the right rear
tire; 30 per cent on the left rear; 20 per
cent on the right front and 15 per cent
on the left front.
These differences in wear loss can
be largely ■> overcome by a rotation pattern. Even wh2n alignment is correct,
uneven steering and rough road surface
cause wear loss in about the proportions
Unevenly worn tires are unsa/e, and

comfort. The BCAA says that by rotating    breakwater at Selma Park, a large    done the same thing throughout tlie    1967,  the Federal Government an-    provements, but so far no develop-
tires, thc driver gains:
For more effective braking, as nearly
identical tread contact with the road
surface helps him to make smooth stops.
For better rubber mileage, because.the
life of each tire is increased.
For improved comfort, since tires
worn unevenly make riding rough, even
though alignment, balance and steering
are proper.
Tirqs should be rotated and run in
different wheel positions in accordance
with car manufacturers' directions, or
every 5,000 miles, tc equalize wear. The
most commonly accepted pattern for rotation is:
Spare tire to left front wheel. — Left
front to left rear. —- Left rear to right
front. — Right front to right rear. —
Right rear to spare* tire.
The BCAA recommends that t?re inflation be rechecked after rotation to
insure, proper front and rear pressure

MUNDY  After the disastcrous winter  of 1968-69 Big Game populations are slowly recovering  over Southern British Columbia. The over-all prospects for  1970 arc excellent for Moose;  good for Deer and barring any  unforseen developments; excellent for Grouse.  British Columbia is divided  into twenty-eight Management  Areas and these areas have been  grouped into nine Regions.  Specific regional details (best  area, best time, equipment, and  best hunting methods) follow.  REGION I (M.A. 1)  Blacktailed deer populations  on Vancouver Island wintered  well and are continuing their  recovery from the 1968-69 winter. The perennial producers of  Sooke, Deerholme, Copper Canyon, Meade Creek are expected  to produce good numbers of deer  this year. If the weather co-  ��� operates, rain during the latter  part of August to ensure commencement of the hunting season, there are plenty of big  bucks for the trophy hunter in  stands of .mature timber on the  ridges.  September hunting is primarily for trophy bucks with  excellent opportunity for the  hunter to pick up a youngJ-uck  as a bonus. Carry over counts  have indicated that tlie deerare  increasing in numbers - however they are still below their  record high in 1968.  On the north end of the Is-*  land the best chance for success is in the Nimkish Valley.  Although tlie deer were wiped  out in some areas of the Valley  big bucks still arc available for  thc ardent hunter.  Thc antlerlcss season is the  same as last year, one week on  thc lower end of the Island and  four weeks in the north. Those  seasons both open Nov. 7 and  afford previously unsuccessful  hunters an opportunity to bag  a deer.  On Aug. 29 the grouse season opens - one week before the  deer season. Barring a forest  closure, preliminary flushing  counts have indicated that brood  survival has been good and an  average, or slightly above avor-  nge season is In sforo for tlie  bird hunter.  The, most productive areas  for Blue grouse nre 5-10 year  old logging .slashings in the  Chcmanlus, Alberni, Gold River  and Courtenay areas.  Ruffed grouse appear to be in  good numbers and again the  season. has been left open until  the end of December to provide  recreation for those hunters  who become vveaj^ of Christmas turkey.  REGION II (M.A.'s 2, 3, & 4)  The Lower Mainland hunter  has a choice of Blacktail or  Mule deer in his Region. A  relatively untouched source of  blacktails can be found on the  Islands in the Gulf of Georgia.  Nelson, Gambier, Bowen and  Thormanby Islands all have  good populations of deer and are  within easy access to the Lower  Mainland hunter.  For the September hunter  wanting a trophy Blacktail buck  the Skagit and Chilliwack Valleys or the east side of Harrison Lake from Cogland Creek  to Big Silver Creek, in tlie alpine, are good bets.  For the Mule deer hunter the  Lillooet, Pemberton and Boston  Bar areas arc all consistant  producers of good deer. Again  the trophy hunting isinSeptem-  ber, well off tlie highway and  into the alpine for the best  chance of success.  Much over-looked sources i  good deer hunting are the municipalities of Surrey and Langley. Both these areas have firearm restrictions but permit  shotguns. For a deer within easy  reach of Vancouver these areas  cannot be beat.  -Within these same municipal-'  ities there are areas where all  firearms are prohibited, but  Bows and Arrows are not. For  the Bow hunter who is concerned  about being mistaken for game  these areas are highly recommended. The deer populations  in these areas are such that the  chances for success for the  specialist hunter are high.  Hunters availing themselves  of these areas are urged to  contact Municipal authorities  for specific detail son thc closed  areas.  For thc hunter who, is concerned with tlio best time for  success, November in any of  tlie above areas, is recommended.  Black bears are in good supply throughout the whole Region,  with thc highest number In the  Lower Fraser Valley. Tho  Coastal Inlets provide n unique  nnd tough hunting opportunity.

A survey made in 19(59 Indicated that almost 10,000 hunting licenses were Issued last  year to persons under the ago  of 18.  About 600 qualified hunter  training Instructors will bo conducting the courses by February,  1971. '  BY GEOFF WARDEN  B.C. WILDLIFE FEDEIUTION  The expanding popularity of  thc snowmobile as a recreation  vehicle is opening up our wilderness to a growing numbor of  outdoor enthusiasts. This remarkable machine enables' us  to make full use of tho recreational opportunities which exist  during winter months. No longer does snow mean an end to our  outdoor pleasures, but rather  presents a whole hostof exciting  possibilities for those hardy  souls who venture forth Intoour  winter wonderland.  That summer cabin which  used to stand empty through  long winter months has now become home base for a whole  new sot of delights and experiences. Thc hunter nnd fisherman who previously could only  dream of remote snow-bound  areas now travels with comparative case to once dreamed-of  places.  On thc more practical side,  tho snowmobllo has revolutionized winter travel In northern  regions. Tho more speedy and *.  efficient snowmobllo has taken  over whore once dogtcams provided the only method of winter  transportation. Trappers aro  able to cover larger nreas more  frequently nnd with greater  ease. Oil ond mining exploration Is now carried out during  periods which previously were  out of the question. *.  Yes, tlie snowmobile is truly  a remarkable machine with a  variety of uses. However, as in  the case of the automobile,  snowmobiles are often subject  to misuse and abuse *  The B.C. Wildlife Federation  Is becoming increasingly concerned with the cffoctB of this  misuse on wildlife and wildlife  habitat. Not only docs tlie Irresponsible uso of the snowmobile havo a detrimental effect  on wildlife, but the adverse publicity generated through the actions of a few people Is casting  a shadow upon legitimate users.  Wihtor often exerts extreme  hardships on wildlife Deep  snows drive the animals from  thoir high summer ranges into  lower, concentrated areas of  winter range where food and  cover Is moro abundant and  conditions less severe. ^  During Uils lean period many  animals live only a stop ahead  of starvation, their energy ro-  sorvos depleted almost to tho  point of non-existence. Under  these, conditions survival Is a  full time job and wildlife is  highly vulnerable and extremely  sensitive to any form of disturbance.  Snowmobllo operators Ignorant of tho laws which govern  wildlife during tho winter season, have been known to chase  coyotes, wolves, deer, moose,  otc., in an attempt to photograph them or simply to get a  closer look. Chases such as  these may exhaust the already  weakened animal to such a degree that tho outcome can bo  death for tho unfortunate creat  ure.  Guilt by virtue of ignorance  may be excusable, and is correctable. Wanton destruction of  wildlife is a far more serious  problem.  We have all read accounts of  unprincipled "sportsmen" who,  lacking the skill to hunt in our  "ethical" fashion have used  snowmobiles to run game tothe  point of exhaustion in order to  assure themselves of a kill.  This typo of sadistic behav-  Significant amendments to  previously-published regulations under British Columbia's  new Litter Act have been announced.  The amendments mean that  Section 3 of the Act, which deals  with containers for beer. ale.  carbonated beverages and other  drinks^ *oecame law Aug'! i5,  1970, insofar as exchanges are  permitted, and remains Jan. 1,  1971, as  applied to refunds.  In addition, containers of both  metal and glass will be subject  to the same refund requirements.  While Section 3 becomes effective Aug. 15, the remainder  of the Act becomes law on July 1,  1970,   as      jvounced  in May.-  From *.ug. 15 to Jan. 1 the  merchant has the option, in lieu  of refund, to exchange the same  number of full containers, at  no extra charge to the pur chaser for the containers, for empty containers delivered to him.  Effective Jan. 1, all containers  will be refundable and containers bearing any indication  that they are not refundable or  that no refund is payable shall  not be used in British-Columbia.  To avoid the possibility of  empty containers being brought  into the province for the purpose of obtaining refunds, no  merchant will be required to  refund more than 18 empty containers for any one customer in  any one day. The refund is two  cents per container;'  iour is inexcusable and in direct  opposition to the high moral  and ethical standards which the  B.C. Wildlife Federation represents. Until legislation is  passed governing this aspect  of snowmobile misuse public  opinion is the only check on  this needless destruction of our  wildlife resources.  DTrG  ,��... a.

Continued from Page 1  Goats are obtainable at the  heads of the inlets but the  hunting is difficult due to the  terrain and the vegetatiop.  For the Upland bird hunter  Blue grouse are available in  the alpine and subalplne early  in the season. -Ruffed grouse  hunting in the lower valleys is  expected to be good, but the*  hunters should wait until after  the leaves have dropped from  the trees, in early November.

Mule deer are thc biggest  drawing card in this Region and  the best areas for success are  somewhat scattered. In M.A. 14  Reed Lake, Darfield, Loon Lake  and Jesmond are the best bets.  North of Tunkwa Lake and the  north side of Mahood Lake are  also good.  As with other areas in the '  Province early season hunting  is spotty with the big bucks,  high in the alpine. But September is the start of the downward migration which can result  in good success for the hunter.  Improved success comes with  the first cold weather in late  October or early November.  If this is late enough to coincide with the rut the chances  for success go up. In this Region November is the best time  for success.  Moose populations in the  Kamloops area are continuing  their long, slow decline, as the  range continues to deteriorate.  Management Area 14 is still  producing moose with "the  Bridge Lake area being the best  Consistent producing areas are  Meadow Lake justoutof Clinton,  the Eagen Lake - Young Lake  area, English Lake and the Rae-  field River.

There is a peak of  availability in early October  which coincides with the rut and  then another peak associated  with the cold weather towards  the end of the season.  Upland game is a mixed bag.  Blue grouse are definitely down  due to the drought conditions.  Ruffed grouse are above average with success expected to  be about the same as 1959.  ' Chukar populations have  made a tremendous recovery  from near extinction following  the 1968-69 winter. A combination of two good hatching seasons plus the mild 1969-70  winter has resulted in Chukar  populations near the 1968 level.  A pointer and strong legs are  definitely an added advantage in  the WalhacMn area.  The long* spell of drought has  resulted in low water levels,  throughout the Cariboo Plateau.  It is expected that diving duck  populations will be down over  1969 with dabblers about the*  same'as last year.  I ' ���'������   i  REGION IV (M.A/s 5, 6, 7, & 8)  Hunting prospects in the Okanagan Region are average or  slightly below average. This  area was one of the most severely hit with the winter of  1968-69 but the mildness of  last winter plus an early spring  have helped wildlife populations  begin their recovery.  Management Area 7, especially in the Princeton - Tula-  meen areas, should be ideal  for Mule deer hunters. For the  hunter who wants a trophy buck  the Ashnola is aconsistantpro-  ducer.

Blue grouse hunting will be fair  to poor as drought conditions  this summer have reckiced  brood survival. FranWWt5'and  Ruffed grouse himting promises  to be good.  Exotic upland game is recovering from the die-off following the severe 1968-69 winter. Quail are available in good  numbers south of Olive*, especially along the. river bot-  toms��. For the Pheasant" hunter  the North Okanagan will be the  best -area. The Vernon -Ann-  strong and Armstrong -Ender-  by areas have indicated good  hunting opportunity. Hunters  are urged to ask for permission to hunt in all areas of the  Okanagan Mainline as most of  the land is privately owned.  REGION V<M.A.'s 9,10, & 11)  Mule deer are the major  attraction of the Kootenay-Re-  gion. In the early season'trophy bucks are in the alpine  and subalpine especially/in the  area south of Fort Steele. It is  this area of the East Kootenay  (M.A. 11) which consistently  produces the majority of the  deer killed in this Region. In  M.A. 104, late.

For these hunters  the high country in September  is the best time. The Elk hunting deteriorates to fair in October and then picks up from  fair to good in November,.  The day of shooting elk off  the road is over in the Kootenays. The population has been  undergoing a major change both  in composition and numbers.  There are elk available but the  hunter must get off the road  and work for his animal.  .Sheep hunting in the Kootenays is still minimal. Following  the 1965 dieoff only one of the 5  herds affected have recovered  to pre-dieoff numbers. The  other herds are recovering but  very slowly.  Upland bird opp6rtunities appear to, be as good as they were  in 1969. Ruffed grouse are in  good number and hunters should  experience little difficulty.  For the Waterfowl hunter  there will be excellent water->  fowl hunting in the Columbia  Marshes in September and October. The Creston Flats will  also produce good duck hunting  in October arid November.  Geese populations are scattered  throughout the Region and will  again provide limited hunting  opportunity.  REGION VI  (M.A.'s 16,17,18, & 19)  Moose; deer and waterfowl  hunting are the major attractions of the Williams Lake Region. Fortunately much of the  Region escaped the severity of  ttte 1968-69 winter.  .Moose are available in the  Horsefly, Likely Area, for the  land hunter and along the Cariboo River, for the river hunter.  Hunters with large boats (14'  of longer) have good chances for  success in the.Quesnel Lakes  area.  West of the Fraser good sue -  cess is assured along the Chil-  t cottn River, especially late in  the season. Early season hunting Is spotty west of the Fraser  bat colder temperatures and  ��� snow in November move the animals tolowerelevations.  The Blackwater -NazkoArea  is a good producer in Management Area 18. The best hunting  times are during the rut in early  October or during the month of  November.  Mule deer are available  throughout the Region and tend  to be associated with Douglas  Fir ridges and south facing  slopes. Trophy animals are  found in this area and tlie careful hunter is assured of success.  The Chilcotin Plateau westof  Williams Lake is one of tho few  areas in the Province whore  Sharptailed grouse can bo found.  Indications are that all native  grouse In this region aro In good  supply.  As in tho Kamloops Region,  water levels In 1970 aro down  and this has reduced tlio pro--  duction of most ducks. Divers  are most affected while dabblers will probably bo at their  1969 level.  REGION VllandVni  (M.A/S 20,21,22,23,24,25, &2G)  Mooso aro tlio major attraction to tho Prlnco George -  Torraco Regions. Hunting thoso  animals to a largo extent Is tied  in with access to whore thoy  are.  Areas with tho best mooso  ' populations and best access Is  Management Area 22. Mooso  populations in tlio following  Management Arena aro all good  but thoy liavo decreasing  access: M,A. 20, M.A, 25 and  M.A. 21,  Dost timo to hunt in during  tho rut - Sept, 20 to Oct. 20.  Boat way to hunt Is from a  ' boat (minimum 14' aluminum  with n 5 ill* motor) on tha rlv-  orn. Tho hunter can either drift  tho river or slowly navigate  tho wator courso. With n boat  tho hunter cnn stop and hunt  likely-looking meadows off the  river.  For tho trophy hunter tho  bulls como to 'grunting' during  the peak of tho rut - October  1st to 12th.  Tho nntlorless season starts  at tho end of tho rut and continues until early December,  Novomber is tho best month  for hunting and tlio mooso Imvo  a quiescent poriod for tho month  following the rut.  If hunters arc going to uso  boats, a 12' enr top can boused  but only with extreme cnutlon,  To be on the safe sldo hunters  Are urged to Imvo as largo and  tint bottomed n boat ns pos-  Blble. *  Tho Region's next best hunt  ing opportunity is for goats. The  best areas are widely separated, the McBride area in Management Area 20 and Hazelton -  Babine-Mountains in-Manage- _  ment Area 25. Goats iire present Invaryingnumbersonmost  mountain ranges in the Region  and the time to hunt is in August and September.  Caribou are present, in the  Region but are difficult to hunt  Thc best time to hunt them is  September through October but  the areas with road access are  very small in number. For the  hunter interested in a river  boat hunt caribou are available  in good numbers in the Upper  Finlay and the Murray Ranges.  The Monkman Pass also has  caribou but again this is either  an aerial or a long pack trip.  Upland birds, especially the  forest grouse, will be excellent  in the Prince George ftegion.  Indications are that 1970 will  be as good or better than 1969.  REGION IX (M.A.'s 27 & 28)  The 1969-70 winter was one  of the mildest on record and  this combined with an early  spring has produced an excellent outlook for the fall. Northern British Columbiaescaped  much of the severe snowfall  and teniperatoireVpf the I968-6.*.  winter and this has resulted in  excellent hunting success and  good carryover of wildlife populations.  Any moose hunter who returns from the Peace River  Region without a moose did one  of two things. Either he wore  a blindfold or he spent the entire trip in the bar!  The area between Mile 101  and Mile 200 is laced with oil  exploration roads (most are  passable to pickups) and the  hunting technique is to drive  these roads and hike through  the moose country.  The best time to hunt is during the rut, Sept 15 to 30. This  will produce good trophy bulls,  but most people hunting the  Peace River wait until the ant-  lerless season opens Oct 4.  River hunting should be good  but a minimum of 14' is required on the Peace, Ft Nelson,  and Muskwa. The latter two are  farther up the Alaska Highway.  Elk are available in Region  IX but again access limits their  practical availability. If the  hunter is trailering a 14' plus  flat bottomed boat to the Muskwa for moose he could shoot  for elk as well by continuing  up the river towards the headwaters.  If the moose hunter cannot  hunt the Peace River Region  during the rut it is best if he  waits.until after November 15.  Like his southern neighbours  the Peace River moose has a  quiescent period for a month  following the rut With the colder weather and the start of  snowfall chances for success  increase. Should a hunter have  a SWdoo and wait until there is  snow on tho ground, the Mile  101 to Mile 200 area is guaranteed to produce a moose for  him.  BY THE LATE  DR. G. CLIFFORD CARL  Vancouver Island is large  compared with most coastal islands and is not far removed  from the mainland, yetitsfauna  is unique in many ways. For  example, certain common and.  well - known mainland animal s  are not found on these although  Hying conditions are apparent-  ly no different from those on  the adjacent coast Lacking are  skunks, porcupines, pack-rats,  moles , chipmunks and rabbits. Less obvious absentees  are jumping mice, pikas, pocket-gophers, shrewmoles, red-  backed mice and flying squirrels. Also includedonthe list  grizzly bears, coyotes and bobcats since these too are*com--  mon mainland species yetare  not found on the Island.  The number of animals native to Vancouver Island is relatively small compared with  tits number foundon the mainland coast The list of native  species Includes shrews (three  species), bats (eight species),  black bear, raccoon, marten,  weasel, mink, wolverine, otter,  wolf, cougar, marmot red  squirrel, beaver, whitefooted  mouse, meadow mouse, wapiti (elk) and coast deer.  The mountain goat,muskrat  .Norway, black and roof rats,  the house mouse, domestic cat  and fox have all been Introduced in recent times and are  now part of the permanent  fauna.  How Is it that some animals  are found on Vancouver Island  while others are not, and yet  only a little over a mile separates these land masses in  some places? No person knows  the complete answer but it is  interesting to speculate a bit  along tills line. It is generally  accepted that British Columbia, including the off-coast  islands, was swept, clear of  all living things during the  Ice Age and that population of  plants and animals as we  know them became established after the ice had left. We  can assume then mat those  species now on Vancouver Is  land   and all the other islands  ot the coast for that matter,  got there by some means in  comparatively recent   times.  Some of the larger mammals  could have got there by swimming, which is probably how  wapiti, deer, bear and cougar  came to the Island. It has also  been suggested that for a time  at least there may have been  an ice connection between the  various islands and the mainland - bridges over which animals could easily have moved from one area to another  over the water. .    ..  It Is possible that such Ice  bridges persisted over such a  long period of time that they  even supported a growth of  plants on theft* surfaces as in  the tundra country nowadays,  making it easier for aningals  to live and move over them.  Thus living creatures could  easily have spread from the  mainland to various islands  through seasonal migration ox-  exploratory wanderings.  How is it then that some animals such as chipmunks, porcupines, skunks and rabbits  foiled to cross over?  It may be that these animals  were not present on the mainland during the period of the  supposed ice-bridges and by the  time they hadarrivedonthe adjacent coast the bridges had  disappeared, isolating the islands by a more or less insurmountable water barrier.  The water gap has not been  completely insurmountable.  Some small forms of amphibians, some mice, shrews, reptiles and land invertebrates  in general may easily have  been transported to Vancouver  and other islands by rafts of  debris swept into the ocean  by landslides. It has beenpoint  ed out that such slides occur at  intervals, particularly where  the coastline is steep.  Perhaps we will never know  how Vancouver Island became  stocked with wildlife, but with  each piece of evidence gathered, yet another piece is added  to the jigsaw puzzle which In  time may give up its secret  This six-year-old Labrador  and two 5-month pups disappeared from Shell Beach, Lady-  smith, July 6. She's marked  Cazu2 in her right ear. The  pups are not marked. Find  them and a record reward is  offered. Phone collect ANY  information to Bill Jones at  731-5311 in Vancouver.

Is  that your secret vice, and only  your wife knows, and she's one  too?  Do you spend long evenings  with maps spread,out on the  floor, tracing routes, wondering  if all those trails are driveable?  How's the hunting?  Want to know an area, about  nine inches across by six inches  deep on a standard road map,  that has more going for it than  most places you can name?  Well, no more suspense. It's  that territory between Prince  Rupert on the Pacific Ocean and  Prince George in the north-  central area of British Columbia, and it is bisected by a thin  red line ��� Highway 16 West  Doesn't sound all that great?  Don't knock it until you've seen  it In that vast chunk of real  estate are some of the finest  lakes in aprovince of fine lakes,  lakes with names like Ootsa,  Babine, Francois, Morice and  Takla, and mountain ranges called Hogem and Omineca and  Hazelton and Skeena andBabine  andBulkley, and villages so far  back of beyond, named German-  sen Landing and Grassy Plains  and Aiyansh and Old Fort and  West Landing, that they are  little more than trading posts.  And the moose - and geese -  and fish!  Sounds inaccessible, this  frontier? Not really. Not too  many tourists in summer are all  that adventurous, but there are  roads into these lakes, and a  hundred more, and the mountains are there for admiring, if  you know which range is which.  And the tiny villages are also  on roads, and getting behind  and beyond the ranges is part  of the fun.  You don't need safari equipment and survival gear. But a  good vehicle in good condition,  with good tires, is a necessity.  And a good camping outfit fishing tackle, enough food, possibly  a stout cartop boat and a measure of common sense.

The whole project from 1948  to 1970, including a hugh electrical generating site'back in  the mountains at Kemano, has  cost nearly $500,000,000. By all  means, take a tour of the smelter.

Five are  native to the northeast Pacific Ocean; Chum, pink, sock-  eye, coho,- and chinook. The  king salmon is king of them  all in size, reaching 100  pounds; in length of migration,  to 3,000 miles; in food quality; and in sport fishing quality, with some 90 percent of  all salmon taken on sport fishing tackle being kings or co-  hoes.  Salmon regenerate in the  gravel beds of streams. These  beds are known as "riffles " or areas where the  stream current is fairly rapid  and washes around and through  the bottom gravel. Laid in  the late summer and fall, the  masses of eggs incubate until  early winter. They then hatch into "alevins," or small  fish with the yolk sacs attached. In the spring these emerge from the gravel as about  inch - long "fry."  Some species immediately migrate to the sea. Others remain in fresh water up^  to a year or more before they*  head out to sea to mature in  salt water. Species vary, but  after two to five years, they  begin the return to their exact  stream and place of origin.  Salmon have been observed to  jump walls of fish hatchery  ponds on their return to  the place of origin. If they can't  return to the area where they  hatched, salmon may not  spawn. Strangely, eggs can be  moved to new locations, but  once they are hatched, the navigational "fix" is permanent  The valiant struggles of sal--  mon to reach,their upstream  spawning beds are awe - inspiring and the migration is truly  one of Nature's marvels. The  fish stop feeding when they  reenter fresh water. They live  on stored body fats as they fight  their way up - stream. Consequently, fish caught on their  spawning run in the upper reaches of streams are not considered too palatable. They even  change color; some species become quite "blotchy" or highly  colored in appearance and  sometimes look downright unhealthy.  The female digs a nest  or "redd", in the gravel by  hollowing out with her tail a  crater - shaped pocket as much  as 2 or 3 feet in diameter and  up to 18 inches deep. Depending  on the salmon species and size,  up to 8,000 eggs are deposited  in tlie redd. Simultaneously, the  male fertilizes them by covering them with a milky fluid  called "milt". The eggs are  covered with gravel; within the  next few days, the parent fish  die and the life cycle is complete.  Clean gravel is necessary to  enhance free circulation of water through the spawning beds  to provide oxygen necessary for  survival of -fcggs aftd fry and to  wash away metabolic wastes.  The lower the sediment content  of the gravel, the better the  circulation of water and the  higher the survival of salmon  embryos. Research in artificial spawning channels has  shown this time and again.  MOT k STO?

The advice is sound and  should be heeded* Carolessuse  of a firearm can turn an enjoyable hunting experience into  disaster and tragedy.  A risk far greater than that  attributed to hunting faces the'  sportsman, but it seems to be '  overlooked. He is exposed to it  while his gun is still encased,  while he is traveling to his hunting area or returning homo.  Consider these facts, compiled by a UjS. insurance firm  from a survey of highway traffic accidents in 1968.  Road accidents claimed the  lives of 55,300 persons and  injured an additional 4,400,000.  Almost 70,000 motor vehicles were involved in fatal highway crashes, including  moro than 55,200 privato passenger cars.  Driver crrror was responsible for more than 80  percent of highway casualties.  What's all this havo to do  with tho shooting sportsman  who will bo out hunting during  tlio coming months? A good  dealt  Hunters spend In $1.0 vicinity  of $300 million annually on automobile traveling for gasolino,  oil, tiros and maintenance and  replacement of cars. Thoy travel extensively to nnd from  their hunting nrens. Thoy aro  motorists as woll as hunters.  In short, tlio sportsman will  bo exposed to a greater risk  on tho highway tills fall than In  tlio woods and flolds with his  favorite gun, whoro the nccl-  dont rnto Is only a small percentage  of tho highway toll.  This doesn't mean tho  sportsman should bo loss careful whllo hunting - It moans ho  can't afford to relax before tho  hunt but ospoclnlly after. It's  after tlio hunt after a day of  tramping tho hills and fields  tliat tho hunter becomes very  relaxed, but vory tired.

M.  "BOB" HOBBS  From Alberto Sportsman  - Canadians, -with the exception -  of the rain drenched inhabitants  of its coastal areas, have long  winters to either endure or enjoy. Thirty years ago winters  were to be endured. The car was  put up on blocks, the furnace  banked, and the heavy clothes  donned to go outside only when  absolutely necessary. We hibernated. Today Canadians are  ; year -round outdoor people.  Rotary plows clean the roads  as the snow falls, cars start,  and people go on their studded  snow tires. Technology has pro*  duced lightweight winter clothing for people to wear while  enjoying new winter sports.  Newest, and the fastest growing, is snowmobiling.  Interestingly enough, this  sport is yet ten years old. The  man who started it all is a Can-.  * adian, Joseph Bombardier of  Valcourt Quebec. TheBombar-  dier name has a familiar name,  recalling heavy vehicles used  over snow and muskeg by the  military and commercial operators. It was this same man  that tinkered in his shop to  produce the small, lighttracked  vehicle powered by an air cooled motor with two skis in front  ��� that everyone knows' as a "Ski-  doo."  Forty other manufacturers  have entered the great snowmobile competition. In Western  ^ -Canada there is an explosion of  snowmobile sales. Never before  have so many manufacturers offered so many makes to amar-  ket that whisks the machines  off the dealer's floor as fast  as they can be unc rated and assembled.  Most snowmobiles are being  bought by people who simply  want to have fun. Naturally they  are being used by trappers,  prospectors and linemen with  serious purpose, and in the  North they have all but replaced  the dog sled. The useage we  will consider, however, is for  hunting and fishing.  ' The arrival of every typcof  new vehicle has opened new  areas, to the access of sportsmen and created problems in*  the-management of wildlife. I  recall the introduction of four-  wheel drive shortly after the  war that opened vast areas and  had -worried outfitters predicting* the virtual extinction of  big game. The airplane has  opened other areas accessible  by no other means, and in the  case of at least one species, the  Polar bear, has serious effect  on numbers. More recently  lightweight trail motorcycles  have created controversy. I  predict, that of all these vehicles the snowmobile will have  the greatest impact on the management of big game.  The crux of the problem is  that. by its very design the  snowmobile offers the best  and most effortless transportation to big game areas at a  time tiie animals are concentrated and vulnerable to hunting. Over three feet of snow...  the snowmobile can whisk the  hunter at high speeds into areas  inaccessible at any other time  of year. Under these conditions the game is seriously hampered by snow depth and concentrated to small areas of  suitable food supply.  Lest I be misunderstood, let  me hasten to state that I am in  no way opposed to use of snowmobiles for hunting. I welcome  this solution to a transportation problem. Nor is it entirely  a bad thing that more game will  be taken through the use of  these machines. In Northern Alberto today we are confronted  with' an overabundance of  moose, which snowmobiles  could assist in toe harvest of  animals to a non-critical level.  What I am trying to point out  is that regulations are necessary; This could be a simple  matter of reducing seasons to  compensate for increased harvest by the snowmobile hunter.  Chances are the snowmobile  will accelerate an overdue ap  praisal by the Game Department of all areas ofthe Province wherein under-hunted  areas might be open to any  means of access, others might  have hunting pressure regulated  by permit, and possibly others  where muscle power, even foot  power, will be the only allowable hunting method. With proper game management, hunting  by any particular means will  never pose a threat to our  wildlife. Future generations  will, of necessity, be more  concerned with the preservation of a suitable game environment  As with any motor vehicle,  the snowmobile is a means of  transportation of a camp into  the hunting area and jyay to get  game out. When lazy hunters  try to hunt from the machine  they succeed only in driving  game away and annoying the  real hunter. On opening morning of moose season I stood on  the edge of a huge muskeg  waiting for enough light to spot  and stalk the feeding moose. No  one in our party was to see a  moose that day because just as  the first sign of light appeared  in the feast a hunter drove his  snowmobile through the centre  of the muskeg.  Later in the? fall I dropped my  elk eight miles off the road,  having hiked into the area on  two feet of snow on snowshoes.  Without a snowmobile I would  have had a difficult, if not impossible, job to get it back to  the road* Next morning I drove  in, tied the elk high against the  back seat for added traction,  with the hair facing the right  direction, and squeezed the  throttle. Thirty minutes later  I skidded the elk in behind the  trailer, ready to be. loaded,  without even having Worked up  a sweat. It is the heavy, back  breaking torturous part of abig  game huntthe snowmobile changes, and I welcome thechange..  Until the game is domfthe hunt  should be the same^ai jit always has been quite and-^oot  Tearing through the woods, at  full throttle is fun, but make no  mistake about it, it is not hunting--  Except for prairie grasslands  big game terrain does not permit, toe snowmobile to chase and  harry game, even if he wished  to break the law in so doing.  On the open range a new form  of predator hunting has developed however. Coyotes that are  caught in the open are run to  the point of exhaustion, the  final refinement being the running of the coyote over with tlie  machine in preference to shooting him. This, in my opinion,  is totally lacking in sportsmanship. Coyote control is necessary, and even the above method  is preferable to the vicious 1080  poison campaigns of recent  years. I still prefer to shootmy  coyotes. Some farm groups are  expressing concern for the coyote, for he is a desirable predator in reasonable numbers.  They have little to fear. Even  now coyote parents will be  teaching their pups new survival  rules: stay close to fence lines  and* draws in daylight, and you  can never outrun a snowmobile;  so you must out-manoeuvre it  The ice fisherman has been as  profoundly affected by the snowmobile as the summer fisherman was by toe outboard motor.  No longer restricted to lakes  with easy access, available  fishing area has been greatly  increased. The snowmobile is  used not only for transportation  to and from the shanty, but to  tow it into place as well." At  least  one   manufacturer  has  come up with a collapsable  -shanty on a sleigh designed  specifically for this purpose.  There are a few basic rules  of safety anil sportsmanship.  The snowmobile usually starts  with the first pull, so check for  free throttle movement before  starting. Should the throttle be  stuck in an open position the  riderless machine will cut a  wide, destructive path, leaving  only the spruce it finally wraps  itself around undamaged. Extreme ; care must be used driving the machine onto its trailer;  in fact many experienced riders  do this by hand. Just a tiny  touch too much throttle and the  snowmobile jumps right over  the trailer into the rear of your  car.  It is quite possible to travel so  far in an exhilarating thirty  minutes ride over deep snow  that it is impossible to walk  back. Snowshoes aire an essential addition in cross country  travel over deep snow, as anyone who has ever stepped off  his machine into chest deep  snow will tell you. The buddy  system, with two machines,  should be used for safety.  A basic tool kit containing an  extra drive belt and spark plug  should be carried in the seat  compartment, although mechanical problems are not common. "Very few snowmobiles  have gas gauges, and this might  be used for an excuse by the  commonest form of stranded  snowmobiler, toe one that is out  of gas. Heavy snow conditions  can increase fuel consumption  drastically, or the rider can  simply lose track of the time  and miles. In any event, the  more experienced riders carry  an extra gallon, reserved for  emergencies.  The easiest and most effortless way to carry passengers  or heavy loads is on a sleigh  towed behind the machine.  Large loads can be carried on  a sleigh with little loss in speed  and no change in the handling  characteristics of the machine.  The sleigh must be attached by  a rigid tow bar. Rope, haywire  and other improvisations simply do not work.  It is quite practical to carry  a wall tent stove, lantern, buck  saw, and other essentials of a  winter camp on the sleigh into  a hunting area. In reasonable  terrain elk and even moose can  be skidded out whole, but in  any case two quarters can be  transported on the sleigh. Camp  should be located a half hours  walk from the area to be hunted, to be certain the game is  not alarmed. In the mountains  there is no recorded instance of  a hunter ever shooting an animal while riding his snowmobile, so be careful to plan a  careful separation of the transportation and hunting phases of  the trip.  Common rules of sportsmanship apply to this sport If you  are the racing type, there are  dozens of races to be entered.  Respect people's privacy. When  a rider charges full throttle  through a cluster of ice shanties the fishermen are truly  impressed - but notfavourably.  With a little thought you can  create good will, too. Although  the hunter that has slogged three  miles through two feet of snow  is not going to greet your appearance with enthusiasm, he  might later down a deer and  will be forever grateful if you  No matter how you slice it!  feaftuip  yit  Yet it's only  Never before has a lightweight chain saw ever had as  many great features as this 2071.

New models are more highly  powered and reliable than ever.  Horsepower ranges from 10 in  light, low priced machines  through to 45 in full-blown racing machines. The buyer #an  expect the machine to function  through reasonable use and a  certain amount of abuse with  no major mechanical problems.  The prospective buyer should  talk to owners who operate their  machines in the same area  where  he will be using his.  Generally speaking, the 15  tochntrack-. models are highly f  manoeuverablo, and the rider  usually rides with his feet in  the stirrups, throwing his  weight much as a motorcycle  rider might The wider track  models are more stable, and  usually ridden with the feet under the cowl while the rider is  seated. Basic cost increases  with horsepower, ranging from  $800 or less for the 10 h.p.  models through to $1,100 for the  25 h.p. models that represent  tho maximum useablepowerfor  tho sportsman's purposes.

Weighing heavily In tho decision will bo tlio confidence you  ooo  What's in a good knife? High - quality carbon steel. Many  of the best knives are handmade, but not all. Designs vary to  suit the needs of the prospective purchaser, with hundreds of  different models now on the market.  When shopping for a knife use this rule - of - thumb - always  buy the best you can afford. Good knives are expensive, but  the service they provide more than makes up for the initial  cost  Only about a dozen manufacturers produce truly fine knives.  They use the best steel available mixed with a small percentage  of carbon. The raw, stamped - out blank is heated glowing  red, quenched rapidly, .then reheated until properly tempered.  The blades .are then hand - ground into shape and honed to a  razor - sharp edge.  Choose a knife with your outdoor needs in mind. Fishermen  will want a long, thin blade for filleting, while the big game  hunter who spends time around a campsite will want a heavier,  thicker knife.  Shy away from war surplus knives, they were designed with  purposes other than hunting in mind. Check with other outdoors-  men in choosing a brand. They will know what make and model  has served them the best in the field.  ���Veteran woodsmen disagree upon* what size, knife wfll^afford  the best all - around service. A short Jiglffe well ,-vcurved .  blade makes an excellent tool for skinning, yet it is not too  handy for chopping through the boney parts of an elk or deer.  In the same light, the heavy - duty blade will not serve for  cleaning small game or filleting fish.  Most experienced big game hunters use a small sharp knife  for skinning and a hand - axe for chopping through bone.  Don't ruin your knife by sharpening on a grindstone or emery  wheel. You may ruin the temper.  Sharpening should,be done with a stnall, moist handstone.  Hold the blade so the back is about 15 degrees up from the surface of the stone. Rub the blade against the stone edge first  using a circular motion.  Bo sure and turn tho blade over frequently as you hone. If  tho knifo is tough and dull, try dipping it in boiling water before  honing....tho temperature chango can make a big difference  In tho way the blado takes an edgo. *���  If you'vo Bpent tho kind of monoy It takes to buiy a good  knifo, it's Silly not to tako caro of it. Always clean iand dry  tho    blado    after using. Novor, never sheathe a wet bladet  When -storing, coat tho blado with oil or vaseline and leave  It out of too shoath. If( tlio blado becomes stained, a quick  polish job with a piece of crocua cloth will havo It clean in no  timo. \  Rust can bo removed with a flno grit cmory cloth or steel  wool, finishing up with a flno polish with crocus cloth.

One of the newest has already  become one of toe largest developments. If you've read atall  about skiing in this province  you've heard of Whistler.  There, in spite of its.loss to  Denver in the bid for the 1976  Winter Olympics, lurks North  America's highest, lift serviced vertical drop.  The huge shoulders of Whistler Mountain conceal some of  toe world's finest open bowls  for intermediate and advanced  skiers.  And even beginners Mil find  T-bar and chairlift serviced  slopes with an international ski  school under the direction of  Jim McCosltey that boasts dozens of instructors who proudly  wear toe hard earned pin of  the Canadian Ski Instructor's  Alliance.  That pin means, even if you  only take a few lessons there,  you can be assured of picking  right up where you left off at  any of the other certified ski  schools throughout Western and  Eastern Canada.  But, back to Whistler. Located about two hours North of  Vancouver. British Columbia  and reached by a scenic  all weather highway or equally  scenic trip by Pacific Great  Eastern Railway, Whistler of-  fers...good comfortable accommodation in condominiums  and superior to first class accommodation in the Highland  Lodge and Cheakamus Inn. The  Christiania Inn is a major  break - through too because it  boasts a heated outdoor swimming pool, bar and restaurant  at its pleasant location on the  shore of Alta Lake about  five to ten minutes drlve.from  the lifts.  The ski season is one of the  longest in North America with  snow from early October to  mid July. Best skiing starts  around Christmas and runs to  the 24th of May weekend. If  you're thinking of siding there  in January and February when  tho deep powder falls, dress  warmly because tho rldo on tho  chalrlifts that serve tho upper  parts of the mountain can bo  nippy* But, bo prepared to  shed your heavy weather gear  in March because as soon as  tho spring sun appears, so do  tho bikinis. And skiing In  shorts becomes .quite common.  Although its slopes don't  compare to Whistlor, Grouse  Mountain and Mount Seymour  aro favorites of many Vancouver and lower mainland skiers  because of their accessibility.  Both aro virtually within too  city limits of tills burgeoning  metropolis on Canada's West  Coast Of too two, Grouse  is most spectacular.

A ski scliool ropo tow or two  aro good for beginners and  Ornulf Johnson'n  Instructors  ALBERTA  BY W.A. McINTYRE  will soon have them trying the  more challenging slopes.  While the apres ski faculties swing, the big advantage  for the real swinger is the  proximity to the pleasures and  accommodation of the city of  Vancouver.  But what about the interior of  the province?  I remember a time when 1  thought all they had up in toe  Okanagan was tree fruits..  Lately they've been adding  ski runs so fast that the sport  has taken over along with power snow sledding and the Vernon Winter Carnival rivals the  summertime at Kelowna and  the Peach Festival at Penticton  for a general, community -wide  turn on.  The slopes of Vernon's Silver Star Mountain carry good  skiing snow from Christmas  until it's almost time for water skiing on the lakes in the  valleys near its feet Silver  Star while known primarily as a  family ski area is serviced by  three t - bars, a rope tow, a  poma lift and a chairlift so it  offers plenty variety for every  grade of skier. The gently rolling slopes nearby and in winter, the snow covered valley  floor make it ideal for cross  country skiing and power sledding.  Down the roadapiecethere's  a sign at Kelowna that suggests  "Sid Big White." TryitinDec-  ember or in May as I have  done and you'll find fine deep  powder siding. *      .'  The fashion and accommodation in these far flung areas of  B.C.'s Okanagan are for from  the posh and plush of, say the  Sun Valley lodge but the hospitality is real.  If the bring - your - own  sleeping - bag style of accom-  modatioir does not appeal, you  ��� can find a few. oases amongst  the multitude of comfortable  hotels and motels in the towns  like Kelowna. The Capri Motor  Inn boasts a heated swimming  pool and a few blocks away,  the Caravel Inn with its unique  fireside lounge and charming dining room are well worth  consideration.  Most southerly of the major  sld resorts in the Okanagan is  Apex Alpine, 22 miles southwest of Penticton.  Al Menzies manages Apex and when you watch him  dusting off tho tops of moguls or carving intricate turns  you can see that the area is  designed primarily for intermediates or experts. However,  Al's wife Millie directs, a ski  school that can tune up tho  technique of any calibre skier.  Now, If you'vo stayed with us  this far and arc nbout to ask  arc there any moro places to  ski In B.C. Well, tho answer  Is a resounding yes. There aro  places llko tlio steep slopos of  ItoBslnnd's Red Mountain where  Nancy Grccno learned and later  polished hor World Cup winning  style, or North Star nt Kimberley In tho Eastern part of tho  Provlnco or ono of tlio most  Western resorts, Forbidden  Plateau on Vancouver Island.

Fever - Ski Fever.is sweeping the country! It is prevalent throughout Canada but reaches its peak in Alberta's Canadian Rockies.  There is no cure for this *  malady. It is highly infectious,  quickly becomes chronic and  flares to an amazing pitch on  the slightest provocation.  But treatment?Oh! That's the  thing! A trip to the Canadian  Rockies in Alberta will keep it-  Ski Fever - under control, at  least until a return visit is  possible. Transportation by  rail, plane or highway is easy  and accommodation good.  Choose any of Alberta's fabulous ski areas. Start the treatment anywhere.  Of the five ski resorts in  Alberta's   Canadian Rockies  three are in the Banff area-  Mount Norquay, Lake Louise  and Sunshine Village . Skiers  rave about    the slopes   at  Mount  Norquay, the amazing  variety of ski - lift and services at Lake Louise, and the  utterly fantastic beauty of the  Sunshine Village setting. The  assurance of early ahd late season skiing at the resort in Jasper National Park - Marmot  Basin    makes that area increasingly   popular.   Family  skiing is particularly'stressed  at Pigeon Mountain justoutside  Banff National Park. Down in  the  southwest corner of Alberta, near Waterton Lakes  National Park, West Castle Ski  Resort also has snow early in  November and late' in April.  Mount Norquay, is often affectionately called the "Hoary  Old  HiU ", It has been operating for 40 odd years, and  experienced skiers still stand  ..and gaze in amazement at the  steep slopes of the North American and the Memorial Bowl  runs - they are so exactly what  the experts want! Then, over to  the- right,  the  skier who is  . looking for something a little  less^ arduous" finds-'the Wish-  bbhe area. There are runs and  slopes for everybody from the  Bunn-v.' to the first  -  class  skier. At the end of a delightful day, including a visit to the  Cliff House Tea Room (via  chairlift to the 6,900 ft level)  there is the long smooth Gully  Run right from the Day Lodge  to the doors of a modern hotel  on the Trans Canada Highway.  Lake   Louise, in Banff National Park, world famous in  summer, is the.centre of the  largest  ski  area in Canada.  Three chalrlifts and a network  of othor tows give ready access  to tho entire complex. Ski touring Is at its best hero and  Slcoki Lodge and Mount Templo  Chalet aro popular centres for  apres ski activities. The rune  and slopes aro challenging and  varied throughout too region.

"Continued production  of DDT nt this plant was Inconsistent with this policy."  Government standards for Uio  plant restricted DDTomlsslons  to 10 parts per billion parts of  water. Olln stated that It was  oporatlng substantially below  these limits. However, conservationists had sought stricter  standards to protect wildlife.  four lifts and numerous slopes  and runs fan out from the Day  Lodge in ail four directions.  The delightful Sunshine Inn has /  accommodation for about 200  persons. Sunshine skiing is  storybook fairyland fun.  Jasper, In Jasper National  Park, reached by a black -  ribbon glacier - spangled highway from Lake Louise has one  ski  centre - Marmot Basin.  Marmot Basin! Skiers agree  that skiing conditions of the  vast expanses of this fantastic  region are as near to perfect  as it is possible to come.  High above the surrounding valleys, but sheltered from the  wind blasts by stalwart peaks,  great fields of untrodden snow  attract sportsmen who like to  get away from the crowd. .And  yet, closer to the Day Lodge,  runs, slopes and tows are waiting for all types and classes  of skiers.  For those who like to ski  closer to the city there is Pigeon Mountain Ski Resort, at  Canmore,, just east of Banff  National Park. Family skiingis_  stressed, and it was here that  the "nursery" ski theme was  developed.  Down in the southwest corner  of the province, near Waterton  Lakes National Park, close to  the mountains that form the'  Great Divide, lies Grafenstaff-  el Ridge and West Castle Std  Resort. Similar in many ways  to Mount Norquay this area also  has steep and swift runs for  te expert and well graduated  ones for the not - so - experienced and the beginner. From  the top of the lift the viewer  can see Brlish Columbia, Alberta and Montana, U.S.A. The  Lodge, the tows and the long -  season snow are all features  that are making the name West  Castle a popular one in std'  circles.  ndWin@Dii*��ES  'ff-V^  *0~  WHERE IS IT?

WATCH TRAILER LOADS ON WINTER HAULS  . Boaters long ago found out  just how valuable a trailer can  be. Now snowmobiles are joining the trailer bandwagon, and  discovering how many more  snowmobile areas are within  easy reach.  Here are a few tips from  Outboard Marine that will help  the average snow cruising enthusiast enjoy new snow areas.  First make sure the trailer doesn't outweigh the .car.  Usually there is no problem  here. But watch out if you're  trying to haul a large four-sled  rig with your compact car!  A    car with an automatic  transmission, according to toe  experts, is better for snowmobile trailering. The automatic transmission provides  smoother shifting and easier  grade negotiation. A load-level  ing hitch, although not always  a necessity, is a big help because it distributes the hitch  load so that the tow car's  front wheels and toe trailer's  wheels are sharing the burden, fen per cent of the trailer weight should be on the trailer tongue. Top much weight,  too far back, causes the trailer to sway arid results in excessive tire wear. If the weight  is too far forward, the car will  ''bottom out" on the smallest  of bumps.  There are also afewchang-  es you'll have to make in your  driving technique. Swing wide  on corners in order to clear  curbs. Give yourself extra  braking room. Use an outside  rear-view mirror.  Back up presents its difficulties, too. To make the trailer go right, first turn leKTthen  after the trailer has startedits  turn, quickly reverse'the direction of the car. The opposite  will hold true for backing up to  the left A lot of practice is  in order here.     .A^  There are several manufacturers now producing snowmobile trailers, and single bed  trailers are priced around  $130. If you already own a  boat trailer with the tilt-bed  feature, you may be able to  convert it to snowmobile  use. Remove the rollers and  cradle pads and bolt on a 4 x  8 foot sheet of three quarter  inch plywood for a platform.  Use eyebolts to anchor the  machine in front and back,  with strong manila line or  chains for tie-downs.  ���BY DALE K.

KOWALSia, MD.  (Illinois Medical Journal)  Through the years wool was  peerless for one who had to  brave winter's * icy blasts.  Sheepskin-lined clothes and  boots were worn by many and  served them well early in World  War II. For general all-purpose  outdoor wear it still holds a  commanding position. It is relatively inexpensive, comes in a  wide assortment of weaves, finishes and weights, is readily  tailored to any need, and when  dry, has excellent heat-retaining properties because of its  esiiientXibersand-tr-appet  spaces.  But several shortcomings are  apparent. Outer woolen garments invariably need professional dry cleaning services and  when soiled frequently, this cost  must be considered. Wool is  subject to almost constant insect predation which necessitates special protection and  storage.  Careful laundering is necessary to minimize shrinkage or  misshaping; this will certainly  occur from repeated washings.  It will not endure steady, abrasive use, and it is not wind or  water repellent Itdries slowly,  as every camper will attest;  there is nothing wetter than a  pair of soggy woolen socks. But  wool is still the trusty standby  of the outdoorsman, be he farmer, utility man, or hunter.  For snuggling warmth, nothing can equal Grandma's goose  down quilt. It was remade and  patched and handed down from  one generation to the next. For  good reason: no man-made substance even now can be compared to it for lightness and insulating qualities.  Waterfowl down is best for  protection in zero and below  temperatures, be it in outer  garments or sleeping robes.  It is very light, dries readily,  and is the most compressible  of the insulation materials. It  can be laundered as well as  dry-cleaned, but it is subject to  insect attack, though to a lesser  degree Uian wool. It is pervious  to wind. Mid moisture.        A  ' Outdoor gear has improved  remarkably in the last fifteen  years with the development of  synthetic fibers. These are  known under trade names of  Acrilan, Dacron, and polyester  fibers. Their insulating prop-  mmmmmmmm,mmmmm,Mmmmmimammm  erties are good, wearing qualities better than wool; they  launder and dry well, are not  affected by insects, and are virtually indestructible. They, like  wool and down, need an outer  covering to repel moisture and  wind. Presently they are used in  insulated underwear, coats-and  pants, and sleeping robes. For  rugged, continuous outdoor  wear they have no equal, despite  -a, slight weight increase over  down.  None of the above fibers and  fabrics are fully protective in  themselves unless covered by  vuidjrbreakex^A-.w-aterproof--  parka worn over this type of  clothing is best. On a calm day  it can be removed to prevent  excessive perspiration and allow ventilation.  But reckon with the wind!  Cold on a windless day is tolerable even when the thermometer reads zero, if one remains active. However, light  and variable winds - two to five  miles per hour - begin to waft  away the covering of warm air  that surrounds the body, and  the discomfort increases with  the wind velocity.  The successful British assault on Mi. Everest was due  in large measure to development of windproof fabric impervious to winds of 100 miles per  hour. Such winds are an almost  daily occurrence above 25,000  feet, and the temperature is  constantly below zero.  Though cold tolerance depends on adaptation and psychological characteristics, we  cannot withstand severe cold  accompanied by incessant wind.  Should such conditions arise,  seek a shelter,     and  soon.  Only the bison will face the  storm; we, like our cattle, must  present our backs to it. Protect  the head, neck, wrists and ankles. If these* three areas of  the body are adequately protected, the remainder of the body  will be comfortable.  When properly clothed, the  rigors of winter hold no fears  for us. Many cold weather ac- ���*.  tivities- foimerly-enjdjfT^'enly'  by a certain sub-species are  now available to the many. The  renaissance is here - thanks to  better utilization of well-known  fibers, development of new  ones, and an understanding of  cold phenomena.  ,*���a|  CHILLY but rewarding is the rapidly growing sport of fishing for trout through the ice. Warm clothing, a fishy lake, and  simple equipment  is all you need.

The southbound migration was winter's warning.  Today the presence of waterfowl, and the mystery of their  migrations still provide the  spiritual uplift they gave Canada's early settlers. To a society becoming even more conscious of the relationship between living things and their  environment, waterfowl are an  admirable reminder of the  uous thread that links  ing things to the land and water  on which their very existence  depends. In southern British  Columbia we see waterfowl as  birds of passage, knowing that  their survival depends on the  Arctic tundra and other distant  breeding grounds, the resting  and staging areas that we can  provide, and the essential win-,  ter habitat of the southern United States and Mexico.

The Creston Valley Wildlife  Management Area was established in 1965 to ensure that critical waterfowl habitat in the  Kootenay Valley is retained as  a part of our contribution to the  perpetuation of waterfowl On  this continent.  The Management Area is near  Creston on the southern Trans-  Canada Highway #3, between  Cranbrook and Nelson, bounded  by Kootenay Lake and stretches  along the valley bottom to the  International border.  The valley floor has been built  up from silt deposited by the  Kootenay-River since the last  Ice'-"Age. The agricultural potential of the fertile soil was  recognized in the 1890's. Since  that time drainage and reclamation programs have put 23,000  acres under cultivation. Conservationists and sportsmen  recognized how important the  remaining 16,000 acres of the  valley wore for the wild creatures that depended upon them,  particularly waterfowl, to whom  tho Creston Valley was one  essential link In achalnof stopovers from the Gulf of Mexico  to tho Arctic.  Dedicated individuals, government biologists, local  sportsmen's groups through tho  West Kootenay Rod & Gun Clubs  Association, and tho B.C. Wildlife Federation, all urged tho  provincial government to preserve the Creston wetlands ns a  wildlife refuge. Tho thirty years  of efforts woro rewarded In tho  1965 establishment of tho Wildlife Management Area.  Tho Management Area Is  made up of 3,800 aero Duch  Lako in tho northeast, Six Mllo  Slough to the west, Leach Lake  south of Six Mile Slough, and  immediately south of that, Corn  Creek Marsh.  Indian Reserve ' marshes  south of Creston have by agreement between the Indian people  at Creston and the Canadian  Wildlife Service been included  in the Management Area's operation, and the smaller Dale  Marsh at the International boundary has been endowed to the  Area. Because of the jointFed-  eral and Provincial responsibilities for waterfowl management, the ManagementAreaisa  good exampleof cooperation between the Federal and Provincial Governments ona resource  project.  Without question the mostre-  gal of the birds in the Valley  are the' large' white whistling  swans. In late March and early  April the area is a haven for  several thousands of these maj  estic birds en route to their  Arctic nesting grounds.  The valley bottom is usually  snow free by February, and by  early March the great blue heron can begin feeding around the  holes rotted in the ice by the '  warm spring sunshine. Overhead the bald eagle begins his  search for fish and the returning migrant coots.  By March and into April the  ducks, geese and swans begin  their movement north. The can-  vasback, the courting scaup, the  redhead, and the whistle of  goldeneye wings testify to the  quickening pulses of the living  marsh.

I shot bettor with that gun  that I had any right to ��� probably because it was fast and  light (16-gaugo Modol 12s had  tho same dimensions as tho  20-bores) and the stubbybarrol  made it oven faster.

'  A fow years ago, shot pattern was almost entirely controlled by barrel chbko nlono.  Today, patterning is not only a  function of barrel choke but at so  shell doslgn. Tho principle of  alcoved shot loads has had a  dramatic effect on shotgun patterns. Tho patterning of a shotgun Is Improved greatly by ro-  duclng flattening of pellets against tho stool barrel wall, and  pulling such fliers back Into  tho main pattern whoro thoy  belong.  It Is misleading to say tliat  with modorn sleeved shotsholls  tho modified choko becomes full  nnd tho Improved cylinder choko  becomes modified, Hntltor, with  tho now ammunition, tho Bbot-  gun cl��ko performs tho way It  was truly designed to, fortlicao  shells exploit tho maximum efficiency of tho ct-oko boring. Tor  tho purposes of tlio nvoiageup-  Innd gunner, this means that  ho's ovorgunnlng hlmnolf with  a full-choko gun.  �� For all-around shooting today  In uplands nnd woods, either  tho Improved cylinder or nVodl-  flod barret IS excellent, Wo Imvo  Boon hundreds of pheasants  dropped ot all ranges with trod'-  Iflcd barrola -- usually with  high-brass loads with number 0  ilvot.

Rather, two  places: in long-range shooting,  and/or delivering a massive  stroke at moderate range.  Tho first uso Is overrated.  RelaUvcly few hunters aro capable of exploiting a full-choked  12 gaugo at marginal ranges.  I've known only a half-dozen  waterfowlors, for example, who  could wring tho full potential  from a full-choke, 3-tnch, 12-  gaugo magnum. Tho average  gunner Is much better off with  n modified barrel, shooting ot  ranges within 40 yards or not  nt all.    -  Tho second uso of the full  choko Is practical. It Is ah excellent choice for geese and  Is most cffectlvo when throwing  a hoavy chargo of numbor 2 or  4 pellets from ono of tho magnum shotsholls for maximum  patterning efficiency with tlio  big pellets.  by  Hon. Jack Davis, P.C.,M.P.  Minister of Fisheries    and  Forestry..  FROM AN ADDRESS, TO THE  CANADIAN MANUFACTURERS' ASSOCIATION.  Fortunately we have caught  our mercury problem in time.  We have caught it before there  has been any real danger to human beings. Once Mercury has  been spotted we have closed  the fishery. Either that or  we have bought up all the fish  and had them destroyed. Noth-  _ing has escaped the waicfiluT-"  eye of our Federal Fisheries  Inspection Service - a service which is regarded, the  world, over, as tops insofar,  as fish quality and public health are concerned.  The discovery of significant  amounts of mercury in Canadian fish is alarming. However the situation is well In  hand. We began our study of  mercury losses in chlor- alkali plants in the Fall of 1969.  Now we know how much mercury each plant consumes and  how much spills into its local  waters. Wherever the losses  have been significant we asked  the firm in question to install  a lagoon and to recycle its  effluent We have insisted in  other words, that it keep its  mercury problem inside Its  own factory fence.  Once the outflow of mercury has been cut off the  concentration in the bottom  muds, in the aquatic vegetation  and in the local fish populations begins to fall. This has  been our experience,: for in  stance, with cages of rainbow  trout which we have put in  tlie Saskatchewan River. Quickly picking up mercury in the  original waters the tests have  subsequently shown a steady  decline in mercury content after the plant effluent was curtailed and as the fish themselves began to eliminate this  worrisome element..  Some .kinds of fish, as it  ���> happens, are more susceptible  to mercury contamination than  others. Some pick it up more  rapidly and others retain .it  for longerperiodsoftime.The  bigger predators, which eat  smaller fish, also tend to concentrate mercury. This concentration process- this distillation of mercury up the living  pyramid so to speak - is one  of nature's ways of dealing  with an unnatural substance of  this kind.  Pick off tho fish eating fish,  tho predator fish, tho carnivorous fish like the pike, the  walleye and the pickerel, and  you chip off tho top of the  pyramid. If you continue to  fish for these species you also  tend to mine somo of tho mercury out of our rivers and  streams. This is what has  been happening out on the  Prairies where wo have been  buying up, and destroying thoso  species through tho winter  months of 1969-70.  There aro othor natural forces at work. I gather that thc  average "half llfo" of mercury In fish is about 60 days.  With tho mercury supply shut  off the avorogo fish will therefore eliminate half of its mercury content in a two month  porlod. In four months tlio con-  , ccntratlon will be down toone-  quartcr of Us peak lovol, In  eight months it will be-down to  one-eighth and so on.  There is also the flushing  action of the rivers themselves. Gradually mercury  combines with other substances and forms chlorides, sulphides etc. These mercury  compounds, in varying degrees, are soluble. They are  dissolved and flushed away by  the spring, freshets. We can  therefore expect that, by the  end of this spring freshet season, the mercury concentration j in the Saskatchewan River system will be down to a  fraction  of its present level.  Incidentally,   it was on the  "Saskatchewan River system  that we first spotted mercury  in freshwater fish in this  country. The Interprovincial  Cooperative Company, using  the mercury cell process to  make caustic soda and chlorine, had been dumping excessive amounts of mercury into  the Saskatchewan River since it  started up its plant there in the  early 1960's. No catchment  basin. No recirculation. No  provision to recover the thousands of pounds of mercury  which were being spilled from  the Coop's plant into the waters of the Saskatchewan.

And we're still  -lositigl       ' ~~  Virtually every stream, river, lake, and estuary in the  country is polluted to some degree. The Great Lakes are  becoming dirtier every year.  Lake Erie is the worst followed by Lakes Ontario, Michigan, Huron and Superior. The  once , great commercial and  sport fishing industry in Lake  Erie is dead, and recent DDT  ��� threats to Lake Michigan foretell.the same fate for it  Water pollution takes many  forms: Municipal waste and industrial effluent; pesticides and  fertilizer run off from agricultural operations, heat released  through cooling operations;  radiation from atomic generating plants and chemical disposal from military uses.  *    *    *    ���  Because water is such an intimate part of our daily lives,  most of us give little thought to  it. But few if any problems are  more closely woven into the  fabric of our modern society  than the control of water pollution.  Clean water is essential to  life. '"Moreover, it is necessary to industry, to agriculture and to the conservation and  use of the many natural resources upon which our richer life depends.  People of today are very  concerned of their safety, and  they try to increase comforts and modern gadgets, to  make physical life happier,  yet the danger of life itself js  increasing l .dayby day'a^the,  result of poMtftn'pf our' waiter  supplies.  There is a world wide concern with the menace to human life arrisihgfrom thescar-  city of water in places where  it is needed and the pollution  of water used by the people  and by tho creatures wo uso  as food. Two-hundred scientists  from' thirty-three countries  met in Paris last year to discuss this problem. As to-  scarcity of water, they found  .that in somo places wator is being taken from tho ground obout  a thousand times faster than  It is being replenished by  rainfall. As a result water  must bo used ovor and over  again.  Thero is nothing criminal or  morally wrong in the development of industries and cities.  It Is,the product of man's constant effort to adopt his physical environment to his changing economic and social needs,  What would be wrong would bo  to contlnuo taking water for  granted without doing anything effective to repair tlio  damago caused to It by our  own v acts. Wo havo to  como to terms with tlio  poisons wo mako. Up to now  wo seem to havo bypassed tho  ^uostlon: "How much poison  can I stand and still live?" and  wo havo contented ourselves  with calling upon science toglvo  us some corrcctlvo andproven-  Uvo proscriptions.

We have, In the past relied  trustingly upon nature to protect us, but to burden a stream  or other body of water with  grass polluting material and  expect safe and attractive  water to be immediately returned, is demanding of nature that it do more than its  share.  Before our population - industrial surge, pollution was  not a serious problem, because the wastes from every  city were diluted bytheflow-  -^ittg-ytaterrvtdriiie^yWx^ria;  used as fertilizer by the water plants; and filtered through  the river sands and gravel,'  so as to reach the next user  in fairly clean condition.  Multiplication of cities and  their discharges has loaded  the water with an insupportable amount of poisons from  the factories, offal from the  slaughter-houses, raw sewage  from the homes. These kill the  cleansing plants, use up the  purifying oxygen in the water,  and clog the filtering gravels  with filth.  We have been accepting all  that and expecting our municipal Alteration plants to transform the dark coloured fluids,  sometimes half sewage, into  water for drinking. It is a  grievous reflection on the intelligence of those who permit  the condition to endure.  * * * *  It should be made clear  that we ourselves are responsible for pollution of our  water supplies. "Pollution of  the discharge of material that  unreasonably impairs the quality of water for maximum beneficial use in the overall public  interest".  Of what does this material  consist? It is made up of body  wastes, used in bath and dishwater, washings from restaurants and laundries, refuse  from hotels and hospitals, and  wastes from other establishments serving our needs.  That is our personal contribution. In addition, there are.ln-  dustrial wastes, like acids,  chemicals, greases.  For centuries, if water did  not offend the senses it was  considered usable for ahy purpose. People avoided bitter or  smelly or coloured water. Today, we know from the discoveries of Pasteur, Kochand Lister the dangers that may lurk in  clear odorless water. Tho bacterial yard stick as a measure of pollution has been expanded to include tho viruses. Now wo need a formula  to measure the harmful effects of numerous chemical  substances which may resist  treatment by conventional or  known methods. Any evaluation  of present day chemical pollution must tako account of wastes  from now organic chemicals  such as detergents, insecticides and weed killers, os woll as  of radlactlvlty,  *    a*.    *    *  Today's progrosslvo factory  ownor has just about os much  at stake In tho matter of clean  water as lias any top-water  user. Many a community has  lost industrial opportunities  because tho wator available was  not suited to factory needs.  Too many communities Insist  upon industry achieving Inw-  lovels of contaminants in used  wator, whllo tlio municipalities  thomsolvos pollute Uio streams  with untrontcd or Inadequotoly  treated municipal sewage.

Ray Williston, chairman of the  provincial Land Use Committee. Committee members include the Ministers of Lands,  Forests and-Water Resources;  Agriculture; Mines and Petroleum Resources; Municipal Affairs; and Recreation and Conservation.  The overall impact of the policy will be to set priorities in  land use for such commitments  as forestry, mining, agriculture, and park development, a-  long with control of side effects  such as urban' sprawl and ribbon development along highways.  "This formalizes a committee slxucture set up* to ensure  tltat-progress and tbo public interest are equally served  through a system of liaison and  excliange of information," Mr.  Williston said.  The aim of the new policy,  he said, is to enable the development of land in British  Columbia for social betterment  and economic growth, consistent with protection of the ecological balance of tho environment. The scientific land inventory maps nov/ being prepared under ARDA Canada Land  Inventory will bo used as a  starting point In land-uso decisions.  Adoption of tho policy by tho  Land Use Committee followed  recommendations made by tlio  Technical Land Uso Committee  which based its advico on tho  findings of a numbor of studios  carried out ovor the past half-  year, but most particularly on  the results of studios mado in  tho Vanderhoof-Bulklcy area in  north -"Central British Columbia.  Thero are somo limitations  to application of tho policy, Mr.  Williston said, pointing out thnt  whllo it is recognized that ecological processes and many land  management problems nro governed by physical systems that  nre not confined to legal land  boundaries, the policy nt this  time will deal only with Crown  lands.  It also is recognized, the  minister continued, that wise  development and management of  land should be based on long-  term socio-economic plans, not  only for British Columbia, but  for Canada as a whole. However, until suchplansareavail-  able, the decisions will have to  depend to agreatextentonjudge*  ment arrivedatthroughthepro-  cesses of co-operation and consultation between interested  parties and in the use of local  government community planning effort.  Furthermore, Mr. Williston  added, while rational and defensible judgements and selections  concerning land use alternatives must be based on proper  information, ,it should.be.recognized that presently available  information onphysicalandbio-  logical land systems is often  incomplete. TlWs lack, however, can be minimized by cooperation and consultation between the various land-using  government agencies to ensure  that all available information  and experience is weighed in  making decisions.  To provide for this requirement, it has been stipulated  that the Technical Land Uso  Committee shall meet a regular Intervals to consider major  ��� resource development on ro-  source-uso proposals by any  of tho departments represented on tho Committee, along with  associated potential land-uso  conflicts and Solutions of these  conflicts.  At tlio direction of tho ministerial commlttoo processing  of major Crown land-uso decisions, such as tho establishment of new provincial forests  largo parks, rosorvolrs, gamo  management areas, and largo  ecological reserves, Mr. Williston said, all tho departments  and services represented on the  Land Uso Committee must be  consulted unloss thoro are obvious reasons for not doing so.  .The records must sho'iHhc results of those consultatlohiior  the reason for non-constiltatlol  tho minister added.

Some are a trail hike but  many good fishing spots are  easily reached by car. Fishing  licences are needed to angle in  National Parks and they are  available at information bureaus or at thedistrictwarden's  office where you can alsopick  up fire permits, travel and  climbing, permits and detailed information on trails and the  fishing spots.  The office can also give you  an idea what are the best  baits in the area where you  are going. Flies and lures  vary and what is good in one  area may not even get a rise  in another lake.  There are 10 types of game  fish in the Banff National Park  which has more than 80 lakes  or streams in the eight areas  pf the park.  Topographical maps axe  available at park information  offices along with fishing bulletins, issued . every second  week.  Motorboats are permitted  only on Lake Minnewanka, seven miles northeast of Banff,  and the Bow River at Banff  for eight miles     upstream.  Incidentally Lake Minnewanka is stocked with the fighting Atlantic Salmon and the  fish is also caught in the Cascade River which flows Into  Lake Minnewanka.  Many of the trouts caught  in the park, and nearby areas,  are hybrids. Here is a brief  description of the fish that will  help the angler before he  starts his trip.  For more detailed information on where these fish are  located, and the various lures  used, contact the information -  bureaus at Banff, Lake Louise or the park wardens' offices.  Lake or gray trout: Grey  or greyish.green with paler  spots. Dorsal fins are of a  darker hue. Tail is forked.  Weights are frequently over  20 pounds.  Rainbow trout: A rosy band  along each side of the fish from  head to tail. Below   the band  the color varies from silver  to cream. The back is a dark  green and covered with black  spots or flecks, most of them  irregularly spotted above the  lateral line.  Cutthroat trout: A red mark  or gash on the membrane each  side of the lower jaw, or throat,  gives this fish its name. They  vary in color but the back is  generally dark, green, or  brown-green, a large amount  of black spots more numerous toward tlie tail. Lower  half is yellowish brown with ^  a few black spots. Gill cover"  may extend along the sides,  the same as in the Rainbow  trout. ;  Hybrids: Usually across  between a Rainbow and a  Cutthroat. They are rapidly  increasing in both B.C. and  Alberta, especially in Banff  National Park and in Water-  ton Lake. They usually have  the Rainbow markings and  color and the red jaw of  the Cutthroat.  Brown trout: Brown back  with large black spots. Sides  are also brown with red or dark  spots surrounded by light  rings, some look like red  halos.  Eastern Brook trout: Dark  back with olive green vermi-  culations, or worm-like markings, usually   found on char-  trouts. Blue-ringed red spots  on the sides, black fin or mottled olive green. Pectoral and  ventral fins pink with white  edge. Tall is square cut Coloring of this fish varies with  the  treason and environment.  Splake trout: Another of the  char trout family and is a  cross between the Lake and  Eastern Brook trout. The back  is vermiculated and the belly  1& white. Usually achieves the  size of the Lake trout  Dolly Varden trout: A char  trout that is colored brown to  olive green with large pink or  orange spots on back and sid  -es. Lower fins are darkish \vith  pale   margins.   Forked   tail.  Rocky Mountain Whitefish. A  small, bluish colored fish  with silvery sides. All fins  are tipped with black. About  one foot in length has an  overhanging shout and small  mouth. It can be confused  with a grayling but is not of  that family. It will readily  take flies or lures and is a  good sport fish.  Atlantic Salmon: It has an adipose fin between the dorsal and  anal fins. Drab silver color,  darkish back with fleck spots  in dark and brownish colors.  Has deeply forked tait Just  before spawning time will develop bright hues, and depending on the environment a reddish color.  fell  drale  WMXOffS  To challenge rugged outdoor  conditions, Ronson built thc  new Ronson Butane Windlitc  And like thc name says.'Windlitc"  is amazingly windproof��� and  much safer than matches in thc  woods, ideal for camping, hunting,  or fishing.

There were two things,  mainly, that I knew about Holland as I boarded CP AIR's  Empress of Buenos Aires in  Vancouver for the nine-hour  flight across the pole - that it  was the Land of Tulips - and  that it was there that ice skating was first introduced to Europe and the world.  As we flew high above Hudson's Bay, glided over grey-  brown Baffin Island, and the  dotted shore of Greenland, I  decided to learn what I could  about this chief of all winter  sports, which Canada adopted  early in her history.  Despite international setbacks of late; lost hockey  games; defeat In our attempt  to get the 1976 Winter Olympics (defeat in Amsterdam; incidentally!) Canada is still  known as THE ice-skating  country of the world.  My first connection with ice  skating in tiie Netherlands came  as the smooth speed of our air '  Empress slowed to take sixth  place in the "stacking" above  Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.  For Schiphol Airport, with  accommodation for the largest  of airliners in Uie air and on  the drawing boards, handling  well over 3 mil lion passengers,  100,000 tons of freight and 7,'000  tons of airmail annually, lies  13 feet below sea-level, and  was, in 16tii century, thc site  of many sea battles between  the fleets of Holland and Spain!  And, it was near Schiphol,  (variously called Ship's Haven,  Ship's Hole or Ship's Hell) that  In 1572 a Dutch patriot fleet  was frozen, with Spanish troops  advancing across the Ice, heavily shod in clogs studded wlUi  nails.  Dutch sailors, by now skilled  In skating, as woro almost all  Hollanders, donnod their ico  skates, first cut a moat about tho  flcot, then with deadly effect  dWtcd victoriously around, In  and about tho Spaniards.  Later, during tho selgo ot  Haarlem, now a city-suburb  of Amsterdam, It was tho  skating prowess of tho mon,  women,and children which kept  tho soigo from becoming effec-  tlvo until tho canal Ices melted.  Ico Skating originated apparently, In tho northern reaches  of Siborla and tlio Scandinavian  countries, where walrus tusks  and bones were tho first  "skates". Sovoralofbolh, pierced to permit thong bindings,  hnvo been found nnd are on display in museums.  But It wan In Holland, with its  cold wenthor but relative freedom from snow, that tho many  canals provided perfect "footing" for skates, first wooden,  thon wood-nnd-lron, nnd later  Iron with nn iimor and .outer  odgo.  And It wns on these canals  whoro, pushing with polos developed "with alternate strokes  of each foot" tho speedy, graceful, skilful gliding sport that wo  know.  From Uio Netherlands whoro  a young woman, lain red while  skating near hor homo at Schiedam In 1390, Inter became the  Patron Saint of Stinting, tho  activity spread across Europe  and to Asln, In an early I*ltz-  ���Stephcn Chronicle of Morrlo  "England, tho sport wns "reviewed":  "When tho great fenne or  mooro Is frozen, ninny young  men play on the Ice, somo,  1 n'trldllvt, as wide as they may  do, slide swiftly - somo tvo  bones to their feet and under  thoir heolos and shoving them  selves by a little picked staffe,  do slide as swiftly as a bird  flyeth in the aire, or an arrow  out of a crossbow. Sometime  two runne together with poles,  and hitting one the other, eyther  one or both doe fall, not without  hurt some break their arms,  some their legs, but youth desirous of glorie, in this sort  exerciseth itself against time  of warre."  (The latter section could almost be a description of current NHL hockey!)  But it is the Scots, who formed the first "Skating Club  of Edinburgh" in 1642, who are  credited with bringing skating  to Canada.  There is a story that a Canadian settler, or fur-trader,  captured by Indians, discovered  a pair of ice-skates, probably  the relic of a luckless previous  captive. Obviously the Indians  knew nothing Of their use, so  the ingenious trader offered to  show them. After skilfully performing a fewcirclings, hedar-  -Jed tiirough the ring of amazed  Indians to the opposite bank -  and safety.  An American dancing teacher, visiting in Austria, is credited with inventing "fancy skating" to music, in Uie modernized form of which many young  Canadians, including of course,  Barbara Ann Scott in 1948, havo  brought world fame to our country.  Hockey may have been first  played in Northern England but  despite earlier claims from  Halifax, thc game is said to have  originated with Uio garrison at  Kingston, Ont. and in 1908 tho  first professional league was  formed.  Since Uicn, Canadian players. . .mostly born and raised  in smaller communities of Western Canada.. .have dominated  the hockey rinks, while there  aro few such communities  whore fond mothers don't send  thoir daughters - and somo  sons - to learn fancy. . .or  figure . .skaUng.  In Amsterdam, Tho Royal  Netherlands Skaters' Association organizes long-distance  skating tours, races and other  events whenever wcaUior conditions are suitable, Uio most  famous of which is tho traditional "Eleven Towns Unco" In  tlio province of Friosland.Many  artificial rinks hero, as olso-  whore, permit annual events  which ronk high In national popularity.  So It Is that Holland contributed to the development of tho  foremost Winter Sport, whoro  skating proficiency ranged from  plcnsure to communication  means between towns Isolated  nlong frozen canals, and to a  iinvnl-mllltnry victory on Uio  situ where, among other great  airships of the world, giant CP  Air Empresses nro Uio flag-  bcarors of Canada as thoy Innd  and depart dally from Schiphol.  And,- In noarby Dan llaog,  sent of Government, skating  may woll havo contributed to  the introduction of mlnl-sklrtsl  Thoro, during tho stay of English Royalty during Uio Crom-  wolllnn Period, tho Princess of  Orange "defied tho custom of  the time, by not only ''Showing  an ankle, hut, tucking her unusually short petticoats halfway  to tho waist, demonstrated that  skating requires freedom of  action,"  It wns the French Ambassador who recorded himself ns  being most shocked of nil I  CAMPER GROWS"  SOMETIMES SMART  BY EDDIE BARROW  If there's anything to the  theory of reincarnation, then  my wife and I have spent at  least half of our few lives in  somo kind of caravan or tent  In our last life quite likely we  were Romany gypsies doing a  brisk trade in fortune telling  and changelings as we pushed  our wagon across Europe. Before that we were probably MongolianI wandering sheep herders  pitching our tent wherever the  grazing was best To put is  succinctly, there is Wanderer  iTri'o.ur blood.  It was this mutual compulsion  to see and do new things that  got us together in the first place.  As I recall, we met in a youth  hostel stopover somewhere  close to Nanaimo. Being a woman she could tell you exectly  where, what time, what we cooked for supper that night, and  the brand of sneakers I was  wearing.  Youth hostelling was the thing  to do in those days. The provincial government subsidized  the hostels, and all you had to  do was hike or bike from one  hostel to the next carrying a  rain slicker, a tooth brush and  enough small change to pay for  a night's lodging in "clean but  plain" shelter.  I pushed by C.C.M. over a lot  of miles that particular summer  together with my wife-to-be and  her girl friend (a female who  suspected my % motives, and  whose tires had the habit of  going flat in rain storms).  The war put a serious crimp  in marriage plans. Both of us  got involved in it finally, but we  kept in touch and, in fact became engaged on a mutual 48  hour leave. We rendezvoused at  Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and ...  you guessed it . . .went on a  bike excursion with a couple  of oUiers through the fabulous  Maritime countryside. .After .  that we didn't see one another  again until the end of the war  and several thousands of miles  worth of experience in various  parts of the world.  There didn't seem to be any  point in putting itoff any longer.  We were married four months  after we got back to Vancouver.  The honeymoon? Ten fantastic"  days in the Cathedrals above  Keremeos at a time when that  was virtually untouched country. We lived in a tent, and we  ate great fish from the lake beside our tent pegs, and we bathed with clenched teeth in that  same lake, and we were amazingly, solitarily happy.  The point Is that the habit  pattern was established. Wo  were, and still arc hooked on  the out-of-doors and the need  to get onto a back road somewhere and just go. Our Uieory  Is that people need recharging  more often than batteries, and  there's noUiIng like wind In Uio  trees, sun across the face of a  lake, the look and atmosphere  of a new town to do the job.  Of course as we have become  more mature and pleasantly-  encumbered, (my wife and I  prefer the word 'mature' to  'older') we have made certain  concessions to this business of  roughing it When the kids came  along, three of them in fairly  rapid succession, we invested  in-a five-place tent with all the  amenities. The luxury of gas  stove and lamps, fold-'-away  bunks and all that nonsense  bothered our conscience after  camping the pure and primitive  way for so many years. . .but  my wife admitted one nlghtafter  the kids were asleep, mat a little  comfort in camp , didn't go  amiss. I'm glad she said it before I did.  The kids are older now. The'  oldest boy will, be striking out  on his own any time - by choice,  not as a revolutionary. We got  to know one another pretty well  on those camping trips. Four  years ago I made a good deal  on some propertyalongtheShu-  swap and we put up a nice A  frame cottage. Built it  ourselves.  I bought a Datsun pickup, with  an eye to economy, and we  moved everything we needed  into the site. Wood for the cottage was pre-cut and ready for  assembly. The pickup worked  like a charm, carrying some  skookum loads over roads that  had seen better days. The last  mile into the cottage was nothing  but a bulldozed trail for more  than a year.  The kids are enjoying the  cottage, but growing away from  it as they develop new friends  and interests. The wife and I  will get more use out of it than  they will - until, they marry  and start to look for a summer  place.  In Uie meantime the two of us  are on to something new. Remember the caravan bit the  gypsy blood, the compulsion to  hit the open road? If you can't  fight it you've got to join it  We've found a great camper unit  to go on the Datsun pickup. It's  got everything the two of us  could ask for, and more.  "'We've had some great trips  this summer. The pickup will  go anywhere and take all kinds  of punishment We can go farther into the backwoods with  less gas.  Of course it's nothing like the  camping we did along that lake  in the Cathedrals. That was a  special situation and I don't expect anyone could repeat an experience like that. One thing I'll  say for tho pickup-camper deal  we've got now though. . .It's  more comfortable. I don't mean  for mo. The wife likes a soft  bed and a dry floor when she  goes camping these days. Anything to keep a woman happy.  b'*//A;L  Barrows Choice: Datsun Pick up with campor.

Our population has   steadily    shifted  from rural to urban living and  at the same time has immensely increased its mobility  on  land,   on the water and in the  air.  Changes of the same kind  have been going on at the  same time all over the continents. This same period has  seen the major part of the  development of the pulp industry and the whole growth of  those little private kingdoms,  the Tree, Farm Licenses. It  has seen the beginning ofttie,  restoration of the Fraser River Salmon runs and the return of a measure of stability  to many salmon streams  through reforestation, both  natural and artificial.  Few of these changes and  developments, would come altogether as a surprise to the  conservationist of the thirties;  he forecast nearly all of them  in his arguments for better  management of resources, especially the recreational .resources which, then as now,  were treated as poor cousins  of the others. What might have  surprised him is the speed with  which these things have come  about and the extremes they  have reach in so short a time.  On the other hand, he probably would be surprised at  some of Uie discoveries of research and some of the techniques of management1 these have  suggested. And he might well be  surprised to know that we, his  successors to-day, find ourselves faced with materially  reduced resources and the  Immediate prospect of vastty  greater and more rapid social  changes than he could possibly have imagined, yet that  is precisely where we stand.  Wc have lost and damaged  a good deal in the past thirty  years. Yet population will go on  Increasing at a steadily more  rapid rate; tourist pressures  will multiply In ways we have  scarcely dreamed of yet; working hours  will continue to de  sportsmen and we were only  beginning to realize the importance of habitat Federal work,  thanks  largely to the Migratory    Birds Convention Act,  was somewhat more sophisticated, but then as now grossly  understaffed.  It was not until  after World War n thatthe first  wildlife biologists were employed by the provincial government The excellent field work  of these few men and their  equally sound public relatlonsi  work quickly developed an entirely new   understanding  of  wildlife nianagementthroughout  the province.  We��� and I mean the sportsmen ��� have now learned that  there is always a limiting  factor to wildlife populations  and that neither predators nor  hunting pressures are likely  to play a significant part in  this. It is , nearly always,  for resident game species, the  carrying capacity of the range,  and especially the carrying  capacity of the winter range.  In other words, if we want  adequate stocks of animals '  we must be sure that they  have adequate scope for living  and especially for survival  through winter and early  spring.  We have learned also that  other land uses inevitably  affect the range and distribution of wildlife ��� extensive  logging of coniferous forests  for instance, opens up new  ranges, ensures a flowering  of population and relatively  easy harvesting. Coniferous  regrowth just as certainly  reduces range and restricts  harvesting. A prime example  of this is in the great burned over areas of Vancouver Island. Since Immense areas of  our province are under climax  forest and since extensive logging is and always will  be carried on, we know that  successful management must  .consider and take advantage of  these changes. We have still  a great deal to learn about  the exact ecology of goodgame-  producing areas and the precise biology of their use. Full  answers can only come from  basic research.  Wildlife management must  I am sure, become increasingly regional and local as  time goes on, and it seems  altogether likely that hunting  pressures in certain areas and  on certain stocks will have  to be limited by regional and  even specifically local licenses. It is obvious that control of means of transportation will become an important  tool of management But management will not by any means,  bo for hunting only.

From a handful bf small operations have  sprung dozens of "ski areas",  many of them ranking in facilities with the best in the world.  Nobody knows for sure how  many skiers there aro in the  province, but estimates range  between 100,000 and 150,000.  In annual spending, estimates  aro in the millions of dollars.

Tagged "Operation Grassroots", the study  was designed to examine and  report on past and present land .  use in the area, and to evolve  recommendations for better integrated land use in the region.  Basic ecology, forest succession, land settlement,.grazing  and wildlife receivedparticular  attention in the project which  was undertaken by Howard  Paish & Associates,\environ-.  mental and resource, management consultants. Dr. V. C.  Brink, of the Department of  Plant Science, University of  British Columbia, was engaged  by the consultant firm to deal  with the specialized aspects of  range ecology.   ���  Initial impetus for the study  came from members of the  Cranbrook Rod & Gun Club who  were concerned about diminishing wildlife populations.  Hunter success on bighorn  sheep, elk and. deer has declined in recent years in the  East Kootenay. Over-grazingof  the ranges has been blamed for  a major die-off of bighorn sheep  that occurred during the three  years from 1964 to 1967.  Major sponsors of "Grassroots'' included the B.C. Wildlife Federation, East Kootenay  Wildlife Association, Cranbrook Rod & Gun Club, Windermere District Farmers Institute, Waldo Stock Breeders Association, Columbia ValleyGui-  des Association, WestKootenay  Wildlife Association, B.C. Beef  Cattle Growers Association and  other associations affiliated  with this group.  Land use conflicts intiieEast  Kootenay have been a growing  concern' for many years.

All Greyhound's highway  cruisers have huge baggage compartments where your  ski gear and luggage will be  stowed. This gives you Uie  opportunity to climb aboard,  adjust your bus seat to your  preferred position of comfort, and enjoy your trip without     any baggage    worries.  The ski slopes of Banff are  Sunshine, in a snow-bowl at  7,200 feet, with two chair  lifts and two T-Bars. And  a real challenge for the experienced skier is Headwall, at  Sunshine.  Then were is Temple and  Whitehorn at Lake Louise, in  the Banff National Park, .with a  vertical drop of 2,100 feet.  It has sedan and poma lifts,  chairs and T-bars. There  is Mount Norquay, only 15  minutes from the BanffSprings  Hotel. It has an ideal "begin  ners' or novice" slope but is  also renowned for Its ski runs  along the eastern ,,|toas of the  Rocky Mountains ^Hn Alberta  and has an area of 2,564-  square miles.  The park activities, revolve around its two famed  resorts, Banff and Lake Louise.  Banff is situated atanele-  vation of 4,538 feet. Close by  are the majestic peaks, Mount  Assiniboine (11,870) Mount  Bundle <9,838 feet), and Mount  Norquay.  And    there are other nearby  peaks  that can be climbed by    alpinists    or hiked,  along trails   on their slopes.  They include Mount Eisen-  Jhpwer, Cascade Mountain, the  Three Sisters and the Valley  of the Ten Peaks in Uie Lake  Louise area.  Banff began in the railway  construction days ofthel880"'s  and with the discovery of hot  springs, the area was set  aside as parkland and for many  years was known as The Canadian National Park.  Banff has been described  as one of the seven most scenic places in Uie world. Many  travellers consider the Rockies more spectacular in the  fall, winter and early spring  than during Uie summer months.  All these magnificent vistas  are easily accessible by luxurious Greyhound cruisers.  You can become an "armchair  traveller" while touring Uie  Canadian Rockies.

The occasion  -Iwng^ie-ftftiettr-lwt-hduy of the house  "Shasta Lodge", built in 1920 by Mrs.  Harper's, husband, the late Mr. Justice  A ^M. Harper, as a summer home for  his family, where many happy hours have  been spent.   Four generations of the Harper family  and a few close friends, gatheied to renew acquaintances and exchange reminiscences of fifty happy summeis, in  and around '"The Big House" as it is  affectionately  known.  A bright red Pepper plant, the gift  of Mr and Mrs S. V. Claike, and a large  bouquet of purple heather fiom Mr and  Mrs E. \V Snetsingei, brightened up the  rainy clay. Mis Haiper was also presented  with a scrap-book, cleverly compiled with  suitable captions, by -hei daughter-in-law,  Mrs. Arthur M. Harper, containing a  pictuie histo.y of Shasta Lodge. It was  compiled from a collection of snap-shots,  to which all thc guests had contributed  from their own albums.  In thanking the family and guests for  their* thoughtful kindness, Mrs. Harper  said, nothing could have pleased her better than the book with so many, happy  memories stoicd inside. It will most certainly   become  a  family  heirloom.

Liberal Leader Pat McGeer, M.L.A., lias called for the establishment of a provincial  economic council coupled with a tough  but impartial labour court system.  The present system works against the  public interest, McGeer stated, and until  we do away with labour settlements achieved through confrontation and disruption, B.C.'s economy will never achieve  its potential. Only through such a new  system can there be a genuine improvement in the amount of meat and potatoes  on the dinner table of working men and  employer alike."  Proposing a six-point plan, Dr. McGeer said that -labour and management  must accept guidelines; any settlement  falling outside the guidelines must be sent  to an impartial labour court for a binding decision; and government must never again negotiate its labour laws.  "The government's role must be to  remain on top and lead", Dr. McGeer stated. "Allowing labour to push the government around on Bill 33 was completely  unforgivable", he added and blamed thc  Bennett government's weakness and lack  of leadership for the troubles that have  boset the province this year.  "The price the people and the economy  of B.C. have paid while the Premier  wavered and failed and then postured in  an attempt to try and salvage his image  as a man in control pf the situation has  been enormous.  "Unemployment in B.C. in July .soared  over 8 pir ceiit . . . the highest in the  country and well above the national average of .r),9 per cent. At 8.3 per cent our  unemployment was and and a half points  higher than the supposedly depressed  maritimes, But statistics are nothing compared lo people, 7(1,000 of whom were  walking Ihe streets of B.C. in July looking for work.  "A combination of weak leadership,  bad judgement, greed, ignorance and lack  of co-operation plunged tlie economy of  Ilritish Columbia into a tailspin from  which it has not recovered. It demon-  is! rates  how   even   the  most   prosperous  economy is vulnerable to a high degree",  he said in an address to the Canadian  Pulp and Paper Association Kr.i"t Paper  Section in Vancouver, Friday,  f  Insisting that both labour Jhd management should be represent^ on the  provincial economic council and in the  compostion of the labour court, McGeer  also proposed special laws to deal with  industries or unions who refused to be  bound by the combination of guidelines  from the economic council and binding  decisions from a labour court.  He called also for an end to government mediation in industrial disputes because it conflicts with their responsibilities to give leaership in setting policies  that must have only one purpose: the  public interest.  To make the system stick, McGeer  proposed that government be prepared to  suspend the privileges granted to unions  and to industry. The public has made the  unions powerful by giving them thc right  to dues check off and to compulsory  membership. "Industry has its privileges,  too. It is very sensitive to the, privileges  it has been granted to log, to mine, to use  and develop the resources . . . that belong to thc people."  "The whole objective of these stiff requirements is to establish a reasonable and  sensible framework that will lead us to  the future prosperity we can all forsec.  We can only get there by insisting that  not only do wc not permit thc Socialist  to kill the golden goose, but that our non-  socialist government stop allowing people to wring the goose's neck every few  years. It's a pretty frail goose, as wc have  .seen this summer.  As an added deterrent to any government's attempt to win short term'political advantage by favouring unrealistic  awards, McGeer also proposed that. "We  should give the Labour Court sole control  over the wage rates of the province's civil  servico and those persons engaged in essential services where thc right to strike  is so extremely damaging to thc public  interest or safety. This could readily lie  achieved by automatically extending the  court's  awards to cover such  groups  of  New Pro|ecr  -Talented young artist and musician,  Tyrone Joseph's latest project at the  Sechelt Student Residence is carving  a 12 foot totem pole from yellow  cedar.

Helping him is  his younger brother Ian who also  plays in the band. From North Vancouver, the Joseph family have been  travelling this year.

"This concept may even be extendable  to those who are chronically the last to  catch up in a wage spiral and the first  to suffer in inflation . . . those on assistance of various kinds.  "Besides eliminating strikes in essential services, this step would have the virtue of obliging the government itself to  live within the scope of any untoward  settlements it might be tempted to foist  off on thc public."

It would be neither practical nor resourceful to publjish more than a small  portion of this type of material for much  ef it is open jp considerable speculation,  some of it CaMrcmely questionable and  some fit-only for the refuse container.  In other cases we are pleased to  give publicity when possible even when,  as in a number of cases, the cause is  a worthy one but is in fact sufficiently  necessary that funds should be made  available without the necessity of cari-  vass's. Unfortunately the present system lacks in many ways with the result  that important organizations such as the  Heart Foundation, Cancer Foundation,  -CARS, Canadian National Institute for  the Blind, just to name a few, have to  resort to charity.  While most of us acknowledge the  fact that such institutions as these arc  genuine, many past donars have been  taken by less reputable organizations  which make quick canvass for some vague  project and arc gone for ever more.  Consequently, after a while they begin  to treat all campaigns with suspicion.  Thus, volunteer canvassers encounter  hostility instead of support, with the end  result that donations dwindle each year.  Within the next couple of weeks the  Canadian National Institute of the Blind  will be conducting its annual campaign.  This is a commendable project and one  .worthy of the utmost support. However,  it too has been used by other less reputable organizations, some of them  operating from afar. With this in mind  we advise readers that the CNIB is  usually represented by long established  and well-known Ideal volunteers. The  canvass is scheduled for the first two  weeks of October and will be publicized  in The Times.     ������*���'������'  Wc. are not adding support to this  organization above any other worthy  cause but rather with thc object of warning against another canvass usually  conducted in -close proximity to the  CNIB. Many people have donated to  this other cause under the impression  they arc helping CNIB but, such is far  from thc case.  Under -the name of something resembling CNIB, this organization is located in the heart of the United States  and, to be best of our knowledge, at  least some of the funds collected are  reputed to go toward providing religious  tracks in braille to the blind.  in recent years, the same man has  canvassed the area with the approach  "I assume you wish to give your usual  cheque?", The gullible quite easily fall  for this and are too polite to question  ���credentials or seek furthc> enlightenment. They hand over a cheque and the  paid collector proceeds on his lucrative  way.  From tirne to time we have come  out with similar warnings regarding disreputable individuals making a killing in  areas such as this. Invariable, despite  warnings, there are those who continue  to, fall for every sharp operator with a  smooth tongue but life is that way and,  we suppose, always will bc. We therefore simply suggest, unless the canvas--  ser is known to be representing a genuine organization, check his credentials  thoroughly and if in any doubt, do not  hesitate to notify the RCMP.

ECOLOGY is a word meaning, basical-  . ly, that branch of science concerned  with the interrelationship of organisms  and their environments. It is by no  means a new word or freshly coined expression but has gained prominence of  late due to the present call for pollution control.  So popular has this cause become  that the genuinely concerned have virtually lost out to the hordes of banner waving enthusiasts who have boarded, this  hucst bandwaggpn with aspirations of  gaining fame as self styled "ecologistas".  Certainly there is ample reason for  alarm in many areas of industry and, in  fact, right down to the "personal level.  In this latter regard it is strictly a matter of education, for when adults continue to drop litter on sidewalks, cigarette ends and match sticks on store floors  and flick ash over merchandise, regardless of ash trays, then their education  has obviously been sadly lacking.  This, together with indiscriminate  gcirbage dumping, is steadily changing  as a new awareness gradually penetrates.  As lo industry, quite obviously, this  is one of thc major. sources of pollution and contamination, but is one in  which realistic preventative measures  have been taken by both government  and industries concerned. Industry as a  whole is fully aware of its responsibilities and just about all n,iajor companies  are pouring millions of dollars into pollution control annually.  F.very new industry springing up is  faced wilh rigorous anti-pohutivc restrictions and as a consequence the problem will eventually resolve itself. Therefore, it is a safe assumption lhat the  cries of woe and wails of disscntion  greeting any suggestion of a new industry  on grounds of possible pollution or  contamination, are, in general, so much  hogwnsh.  It is true that existence in a garden  of I'den has its attractions, indeed, we  all seek a Shangri La of some sort but  common sense must prevail and eradicate  the pink tinted spectacles. Life is not  quite thai way desirable though it mighj  be. We havo to face up to the Tact thai  life does not revolve around idealistic  dreams. Without industry we cannot  exist and progress.  Monetary pin is the axis about  which our civilization rotates he il the  western world or thc easfern type of  indoctrine. Not ono country has yet  come up with n belter system and so  it will be.  One cold fact of life is Ihe fact that  industry is inevitable nnd necessary unless we are to revert to the stone age.  Al I lie same time there is no reason why  it cannol be controlled within reason.  An example of the way in which  some industries aid the economy of an  area niight he gathered from Ihe Kaiser  The Pmimuhh*:j<mteb*  Publkhcd Wednesday* at .Sechelt  on ll.C.'s Sunshino Coast  by  IScchclt Peninsula Timcn ltd,  Bon 310-Seehell, II.C.

There arc undoubtedly certain disadvantages involved with such an operation from an ecological point'of view  but as stated, it is hardly practical to  convert the province into a large garden  paradise. Benefits however would appear  to far outweigh any disadvantages and  in the case of Kaiser, capital investment  for the production commitments has been  estimated at $48 million. Employment  at the mine and Roberts Bank was expected tof reach 920 by 1970 which includes 370 new jobs over and above the  previous Crows Nest Industries mining  operation. Several hundred -addifidnal  jobs are also created in transportation,  manufacturing of supplies and by re-  spending of payrolls earned in course  of production and shipment of coal. -  During thc two year construction  period about $6 million will be paid to  the province and S8 million lo the federal  treasury. During thc first 15 years of  operation thc company expects average  payment of S10 million annually in taxes.  Broken down this will be SI million  to local government, $4 million to thc  province and $5 million to thc federal  government.  Added to this is an estimated $21  million in induced investment in the  Crowsnest area to provide for increased  population. This will include housing,  hospitals, schools and, commercial construction. Along with thc operation go  a number of side benefits of various  types. ,  While we are quoting monetary  advantages it must he remembered that  this same money means jobs and prosperity and this whether everyone likes it  or not is what makes the world rotate.

England, by James Biggs who  had lost his own sight. He found it so  successful in his local district that he  begap to tell people about it. He wrote to  the mayors of most large cities in Britain,  Australia, and Canada, which brought  wide-spread * use and recognition of the  White Cane. In 1931 Mr. Biggs gave a  lecture series to more than 700 Lions  Clubs in the United States and Canada  and this increased further the awareness  of the sighted public.  In the thirties many types of canes  made their appearances as inventors tried  to find an easier and better method for  blind persons to find their way. Battery powered canes, wheel-equipped  canes, and folding canes were all tried.  With so many blind veterans returning  from the Second World War the long  cane technique was developed at a U.S.  veterans hospital. This involves the use  of a long cane which is arced from side  to side. Thus the area into which they  are walking is thoroughly explored. Now  only the long folding cane" for active  people and the wooden cane for the  elderly  are  used.  Tho White Cane can legally only be  carried by blind persons. The laws of  eight Canadian provinces protect this  right with penalties for others who might  attempt  to use it.  Tlio search still goes on for more effective devices. The use of electronics  i.?. thc latest. This method, however, has  jiot been perfected. Until a device which  affords totally independent travel to thc  blind person is developed, the friendly  arm of a sighted person in crossing a  street or boarding a bus makes the road  smoother. In the meantime the Canadian  National Institute for the Blind offers  mobility instruction in the long cane  technique; thus enabling the blind person to travel in a safe and gracious manner. Independent travel can mean the  difference between employement or welfare. When you support the local CNIB  campaign for funds fou make this service  available to the blind persons in your  community.  * '-&'-;  ..-  i  ^ ^  VS.-'*  \-     ASS'S   i_  ���f   ������  "V  .�����  ' -A-  af* "* -A*  >..   *  Travelling Around  Z-aa.LH.^U-.a.       ���,*,�� ^   ,J L^ I,S?
