The houses were built during the 1950s and vacated by the forces families earlier this year. The Indian affairs department negotiated for thier purchase by the In- dian bands with the depart- ment of national defence and Crown Assets Corp. The Indian affairs department allowed to for purchase and transportation of each house. Most of them were bought for about each, with moving and barging costs of more than a unit. Ten bands applied to buy the homes, most from Van- couver Island.

G. Wells still sends shock waves across time. A recently published book of this prophet of the future, prolific novelist and popular historian, brings Wells to life in all his brilliance, charm' and irritability. Drawing on unpublished private papers, the book, The Time Traveller by Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, illuminates many aspects of his tur- bulent life and character. Most controversial even in this age are H. G.'s views on sex and his tempestuous love life. Twice married, he had a series of love affairs with some remarkable women. As early as 1906 he was attacking convential marriage, advocating free love and writing about polygamy and group marriages, "Wells found sex a vital anodyne for the authors say. "When he was depressed by overwork, he would break down sometimes with rage, sometimes to the point of tears, and then the release of emotion would pass into love-making, followed by a sound sleep from which he would wake early in the morning and resume writing with fresh enthusiasm." H. G. himself put it another way in a remark to Charlie Chaplin: "There comes a moment in the day when you have written your pages in the morning, attended to your correspondence in the afternoon and have nothing further to do. Then comes that hour when you are bored; that's the time for sex." Though his sexual oraltiy and views scan- dalized many contem- poraries, H. G. Wells played an immense role as a literary and political figure in the first half of this century. He and George Bernard Shaw often at odds with each other were a pair of giants of the British left. Wells first achieved fame with a series of science fiction novels, published before the end of 1897. Novels like The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The War of the Worlds are powerful sym- bolic fantasies pervaded with the sense of an im- pending apocalypse, stating the view that man is only temporarily domi- nant on a planet which itself is doomed. Wells was by now evolv- ing the philosophy he was to hold, with dome refinements, throughout his life the idea that mankind could be saved only by some kind of elite leadership.
