George Nowlan had to tell the House was his faith in Confedera tion. look back along that road to give themselves faith in the future. , When lie says that he believes Confederation will, not disintegrate Mr. Nowlan call's ort the support of history. Secession talk is nothing new. In 1867, 17 of the 18 federal election candidates in Nova Scotia ran against Confederation and were elected.

He knows its personalities, its politics, its present problems. He has no doubt about the future: "When" you think, of what we have done in 97 years, then to say that Confedera tion is collapsing is ridiculous." Mr. Nowlan unlike some colleagues in the House, does not take the short, view. His case, in an eloquent speech. was that Canada has travelled a rough good education. But in the latest census figures on individual incomes related to schooling, they, can see, in dollars and cents, just what a man' education is worth in Ontario. The . 1961 figures show that of the 16,000 in the province who had no schooling, about 37 per cent were earning less than $1,000 a year. The average, income of this group was $2,218, Those who had some form of formal education, whether at kindergarten or road and Canadians should pause and elementary school, were earning $3,438 on an average. For those who nan com pleted one to three years high school the average income was $4,136; for those who completed four to Jive years high school it was $5,070. Some university education meant a man could expect to earn $5,301 annually... ., The. difference made by a university degree was a sizeable one.

No Nova Scotia premier would come foraigrtratemice- comes greater than $6,000. The average earning for" the degree holder was $9,370. Patterns at Dawn Dew is moisture manufactured during the night.

In this case we H are . finds . the background of th Cyprus trouble very hard to put in focus. It chances that the current issue of tha Internatioo-el Journal has a first class review of the Cyprus situation from the pen of Mr. J. King Gordon, now of the Department of Political Economy, University of Alberta. . Mr. Gordon puts the background this way: . 'The Greekness of Cyprus goes back to Mycenean times. (ISM B.C.) Not that It was ever Greek in a true sense culturally, , in the' Hellenistic period, but never politically. (And when the British offered the island to Greece in ISIS. Greece would have nothing to do with it). Overrun by e succession of conquerors for three millennia or more. Cyprus preserved its Greek language and Its people a sense of Cypriot identity. In the ttth century, the Turks took over the Island from the Venetians after a bloody struggle, and made son effort at colonization. They retained Cyprus until 1871 when,, at part of a Near East settlement, Britain occupied the Island and took over its administration still acknowledging Turkish ' 'sovereignty. Britain annexed Cyprus is' MM, three months after the outbreak, of war. and administered it at a colony until ISM." 7 -''- JTARLY. in 1SSS the foreign . .. ministers and prime minis-ten of Greece and Turkey met Shorfits From Hansard OopasltiM Leader : DWea-baktr: I compliment the minister (Transport.

This was later ratified' in London by the British government and approved by the Greek and Cypriot communities, along with a treaty of alliance. Says Mr. Gordon of the plan: "The purpose was (1) to eliminate the central source of conflict by ruling put both snots (union with Greece) and partition: (2) to provide firm guarantees tor the rights of the Turkish Cypriot minority; and (3) to place behind these constitutional provisions the solid guarantee of the. -United Kingdom, Greece and Turkey." - The Cyprus settlement came Into being August IS, 190, and the British government granted Cyprus independence, retaining certain rights to defence bases and the use of roads, airports and barbers, '"" . By ISO it was clear that the Turks were restive under what they , believed to be Greek domination of the island. Last November President , Makariot proposed major amendments to the constitution that would greatly reduce Turkish authority In the island. The Turkish Cypriot objected violently both to th Makarios proposal and to' intensifying oppression. The UN became "seized" 'of the Issue and sent In a fire-fighting force in March. On April 4, 1S4, Makariot declared tha treaty of alliance between Greece, Turkey and Cyprus, drawn up at the London Conference (Feb. 17-11, ISSS) had been "terminated" because of Turkey's refusal, to return Turkish troops stationed In Cyp- V- J rus to their base. ,Bul on April ft Dtt. !

Here is Mr. Gordon's dramatic summary of it: "The eastern Mediterranean is a region where myths are made at we might speak of a region where weather it made. It hat been going on for millennia and it It still going on. Historian! describe the region as the crossroads of the great invaders: Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Macedonians, .

The conquerors brought their gods with them and left them behind when the armies retreated , gods of the desert and the great rivers of the desert, gods of the mountains and the islands and the teas. ; A traveller steps across the lintel of an early Christian church converted Into a mosque and looks down to discover the worn' cartouche that once embellished the walls of an Egyptian temple.
