It was started iji this coun- try ill June, 1969, at Keromeos, B.C. It's a 20-day course; costs "It Is worth every Baleman says. "They put you out on yonr own for a three- ciay solo. You have to hack it by yourself." The Canadian Outward Bound Mountain School has its headquarters at 1616 West Ave., Vancouver 9, B.C. John Hasell is Uie director. It's for young men, 16 years ami older. They learn moun- taineering, canoeing, ar.d other outdoor activities. Tuition fees and donations are tax-deductible. The Duko of Edinburgh is a patron.

This is what he says about it: DAD SAW STORY "I saw an article in Reader's Digest. Dad asked me if I want- ed to go. In fact he saw it first and got me interested. "It started out in England to teach British sailors how to take care of themselves. "It is a non-profit tloii. Ttiis is the first year in- structors arc putting in full time. Most of them are from England. "The first day they took us on what they called a 'quiet valk.' Took through swamps; river tfoing through there, going pretty fast. We had to make a chain and go out in the middle of the river; up to our necks in muddy water; that was the 'quiet walk.' They say it is the only dishonest thing about the whole course. "Sure teaches a guy. If they don't like your attitude they tell you right to your face; to teach you what your abilities are and show you what oilier people think of you. "There's no smoking, no drinking, notliing like that. "One guy on heroin kicked it while at tte camp. "They came from as far as Miami, from Montreal. "The first few nighls they gave us equipment and stuff told us a bit about the camp and stuff. Next few days physical fitness. Then we went out on our first expedition. Eight thousand feet was Uie highest we went up. "First expedition we did, our instructor went along with us, maybe a 14-mile hike up tliis mountain, camped overnight. We had to do alt our own cook- ing. Sleeping bag, tarp, ground slKel; slept out in the ojxm. We took ropes course for phy- sical fitness. "There, (lie last week of the course, I made it right through, look half an hour to make it through the course. Had a swinging log for balance. "About 43 took it, there were a few that didn't make it. There were a couple of guys who quit. One guy, a real reli- gious guy, he didn't like the PAUL BATEMAN HAD TO HACK IT idea of doing anything on Sun- day. "They put you on a rope down to your belay position. Ho's got your rope; he takes up flic slack as you come up. If you think you are going to fall, you yell 'tension' and they pull it real tight. "You can climb up; you won't fall. "It was a real challenge. Up on the mountain you're king of the world up there. "They don't let you go back to the same camp again. There can only be for a course and only six courses in summer. "There are quite a few in the Slates. I could go anywhere else but not Kcremeos again. "Then there's map reading. You use a compass. AYe had to go 14 miles to find a lake, one-quarter of a mile long, we missed i', by 100 feet. "There is a lot of deadfall. We had to go through two Alpine Meadows. Once you got up to the top it is clear sail- mp "We did a lot of canoeing too. They try to get you to learn swimming. It started out, wa had to jump into this freezing- cold creek. One guy did jump in. Then the rest followed. It was the group that held you to- gether, forced everybody to inake it." Did your mother go along with it? Wasn't she worried? "My mother thought it was Bateman, 18, is a Grade 12 student at the County Central High School, is interested in drawing, painting, the sciences. He is the son of Rev. Richard and Dorothy Bateman. Any injuries? "Not in our camp, some minor, one pry just drowned." F r i g li t e ning expedience? "Yes, because I didn't know that I could do it, at the time." Sum it up: "We went on tJ'rce expeditions, two days long, and the final which was nine days long. This included a three-day solo, which I did with a sleeping bag, a knife and no food. The rest of our final we climbed 14 different moun- tains."
