Secretary Treasurer of the school board, Ernie Chambers, gave a report on a meeting licld with an official of the department, of education, Victoria, and a delegation representing the school district. The delegation included Bruno Bevalaqua, Norman Gill, Percy Pullinger and Mr. Chambers. The delegation went to Victoria to obtain approval to arrange intermediate planning for the secondary school requirements for the district. The tremendous growth in the district in elementary school enrolments will1 mean that a much larger than normal provision will have to be made to accommodate the enrolment as the students reach the secondary school ing the referendum in conjunction with the Municipal Election December 11. The necessary approval was not received in time to do this.

Mr. Walsh lectures for the Canadian League of Rights and travels all over Canada. He was in the RCMP security branch for four years, is f 'om Quebec and dedicates IK time to informing Cana-cians of "Communist trends and infiltrations." He was invited to speak in the Magrath Assembly Hall by jrivate citizens. A total of 30 were present. This is his second appearance in Magrath. "Can we afford to let Quebec he asked. "We know Communists are behind the separatists. The FLQ is controlled by pro Castro and pro-Maoists who wanl a slale like Quebec in Canada as a training ground. Problems would slart the next day as the majority of Quebcccrs do not want to separate. A minority government plans to take Quebec out of Confederation. Only 23 per cent voted for separation and JtO per cent of the fanners arc nol for it. It is not an ideal thing as the separatists want is to said Mr. Walsh. Problems lo consider were outlined by Mr. Walsh: "The Maritimcs would nol he able o survive economically. Quebec would take Labrador and Newfoundland with the giant electro hydro plant, iron ore reserves to supplement separatists ague of Rights ones in the U.S. and probably that part of Ontario which has 80 per cent of the world's su v ply of nickel. "Ttcre would be a mini-war with Labrador people who built it up and with the people in Ontario who don't want to be annexed. "Then there is the St. Lawrence Seaway which is vital for shipping wheat. It might be closed to the Prairie provinces. Farmers wrould be affected and taxes would be increased to finance uprisings which will come from those who do not want to be annexed." Mr. Walsh feels 1972 will be a decisive year. The Canadian League of Rights has been proclaiming w hat communistic take over will mean to farmers and laborers. "Stalin and Trotski murdered peasants w 10 rebelled against them. Communists will do the said Mr. Walsh.
