The ratio of money spent for educational purposes today
is higher than what it was when parents were at schoolj(See editorial below.) Therefore, we hope, the results of
spending more dollars per scholar today than 20 years ago
should have produced an improved type of "self starter"

parents at the same age.

Right, here, the old complaint that the teenagers cannot
be farusted, will arise. It does not mean the buildings should
be thrown open to them without super vision.. It does mean
t h a i whatever organized units of teenagers are in existence
should be allowed to use the space on the understanding
t h e y would be responsible for whatever happens.
A lot of tilings hinge on that word responsibility. Perhaps
today's education is suffering because -other segments of
modern living would rather not face up to .the meaning of
responsibility, it should start in high places.
Where taxes go
I t costs money to be governed these days. :
This may not be news to taxpayers but do they realize
t h e extent of this cost?
Here are a few figures to mull over, all figures except
population representing millions of dollars, covering pro•vmcM government operations across Canada:

One might ask where does a considerable portion of this

To where does a lot of this money go? Well here are
three items that absorb a considerable amount:

While it is not possible to break these figures down to
an exclusive British Columbia picture, the extent of.: the
increase in the province is generally no different than any
other except it might be on the heavier side owing to
greater populaton growth.
WhOe the provincial picture only,is shown it should not be
ibrgotieii that the same applies ifi probably the same proportion to the municipal picture.
I t should also be remembered in striving to digest these
figures that part of the increase between the years 1945
