ICBC   proposals ridiculous  Mackenzie MLA Don Lockstead  says the Social Credit government's announcement that ICBC  rates woulkd be doubled and  tripled was ridiculous and shocking.  In a press release dated just  prior to the government's more  recent announcement that the  ICBC deficit would be paid off  from genera] government revenue, thereby reducing the  previously announced increases,  somewhat, Lockstead said he has  received a flood of enquiries from  angry constituents.  "I am very concerned about the  depth of anger and worry being  expressed by so many people and  I am particularly concerned by  suggestions that people will be  prepared to break the law to  resist the government's unfair action," Lockstead said.  "I agree that the government's  proposal is ridiculous and shocking and that it is completely  unnecessary." He added that the  former NDP government proposed to raise the rates only 19  percent and that $150 million  from gasoline taxes was earmarked for ICBC.  He said that if more money  must be raised to keep automobile insurance rates down it  should be by road taxes, which  are paid by the driver as he drives  Keep report alive  The recent flurry of indignation  shown by students of Elphinstone  Secondary and by STA president  George Matthews deserves no  more than passing public attention exceopt that it does remind  us of recent developments or lack  of developments in the rights of  children in our province.  So states George Cooper, former supervisor of elementary  education for the Sechelt School  District, commenting over recent  restrictions placed upon students  frequenting the Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza.  "Where other provinces and  countries have taken steps to enact laws that provide rights for  children, British Columbia has  got only as far as the published  reports of the Berger Royal Commission on Family and Children's  Law Reform," said Mr. Cooper.  "And what is more dismaying is  that the Berger Commission report may disappear in the archives unless there is some outcry from the public.''  Problems  with flooded  basement  For the Muellers on Gibsons  North Fletcher road, Boxing Day  brought the second flood in three  years to innundate their basement. Both floods were caused by  blocked culverts along Highway  101. The Muellers filed a complaint with the Gibsons council  asking for larger culverts or better maintenance.  Council, in turn, have sent a  very strongly worded letter and  several photographs of the site to  the provincial minister of highways. Mrs. Mueller said in a letter to council that a sump pump  was use d in an attempt to keep  the house dry but it couldn't cope  with the flow of water. The flood  ruined a new India wool rug and a  good vacuum cleaner. Mrs. Mueller suggested the village inspect  the culverts periodically to prevent another flood.  Mr. Cooper suggested that secondary students and the Sechelt  Teachers Association president  can ' 'step beyond their superficial  complaints of whether students  can loiter on a sidewalk and earnestly dig into that part of the Berger Commission report that deals  with the utter lack of legal status  for children in this province."  he went on to say that the  alarming talk of fingerprinting of  children arrested for offences and  the initiating of curfew laws  brings the matter sharply to our  attention.  "We can do something about it  by keeping discussions going on  the Berger Commission report,"  Mr. Cooper said.  and also out-of-province drivers  who use British Columbia highways.  "It is probable that the Social  Credit goverment's proposal to  .increase ICBC rates to the point  where many people could hot afford to.own cars will be followed by the legalized entry of  the private insurance companies  into B.C., Witit government insurance priced out of 'sight,  these companies could then take  the cream of low risk insurance  while ICBC would be left to take  the losses.  -. "Could such actions be interpreted in any other way than as  a 'payoff' to the private insurance companies?" the MLA  asked.  "I wish to assure my constituents that I will use every legal  means available to me to fight  this arrogant proposal and I urge  you to do the same. Let us not talk  of breaking the law, but let us organize a storm of protest such  that no government would dare to  oppose it."  School sites  eleven possible sites of a new  Pratt Road area elementary  school are under scrutiny by the  building and grounds committee  of the school board. All of the  sites are between five and seven  acres in size and a decision will be  made shortly.  Therapy program grows  Domiciliary physiotherapy has  now completed its second month  of operation and the report for  December shows a slight increase  in the number of home visits  made.  Mary Walton, coordinator for  the home physiotherapy reports  that five new referrals were made  during December. A total of 31  home visits were made during  that month with a total of 534.6  miles travelled.  It was also reported that Mrs.  Fosberry was actively involved in  the Homemakers Association instructing new homemakers in  body mechanics. The course was  considered beneficial and will be  repeated sometime this year.  The physiotherapy organization  Dental  service  A dental hygienist service will  be inaugurated in district schools  on January 19., The hygienist,  who will come from Nanaimo,  will visit each school twice a year  to give dental examinations and,  wjth parental consent, fluoride  treatments to Kindergarten, and  Grade 1,3 and 5 classes.  thanks the Ladies Auxiliary to the  Gibsons Legion Branch 109 for  their financial donation. The  money is going towards the purchase of much needed physio-,  therapy equipment.  Mayor's  thanks  At an inaugural council meeting last Monday night, Gibsons  Mayor Larry Labonte congratulated both the OAPO and the Gibsons Winter Club for their efforts  in the construction of two new  facilities in the village. The OAPO  have recently constructed a recreation hall and the Winter Club  recently opened a new curling  rink.  Mayor Labonte also thanked  the Gibsons Athletic Association,  the firemen, and the various service clubs who have contributed  to the making of a better community.  The Mayor said that 1976 will  see further work on the proposed  Gibsons boundary extension and  he hoped that all problems concerning the matter would be  solved.  Pastor G. Foster was present at  council's inaugural meeting and  wished the mayor and aldermen  the best in 1976.  \  Regional Board - School Board  McNevin-Fisher heads  While the Regional District inaugural meeting inSechelt last  Thursday  saw  the  election   of  John McNevin as chairman of the ;  board for 1976, trustees at the \  year's first school board meet- ?  ing in Gibsons elected veteran ;:  trustee   Celia   Fisher   as   their ;  newchariman. r  At Regional District offices, ';  McNevin, representative for area  F, took the chair by capturing the  majority of ballots over Peter '  Hoemberg and James Metzler ]  who were also nominated for the :-  position.  In a brief opening speech, Mc- \  Nevin thanked board members  for their support and said he ,  would have a dfficult time fol  lowing in the footsteps of the  previous board chairman, Frank  West who was defeated in last  November's election.  McNevin said he would like to  continue the board's policy to  keen meetings as open to the public as possible. He said one of the  first jobs for the board would be  to engage in a day long.meeting  to review district bylaws and discuss particular problems facing  the board.  Besides the election of a new  chairman, several new regional  directors  were also  sworn   in.  Gibsons Alderman Jini Metzler  was sworn in as regional director representing the village  of  Sechelt  Council Briefs  Bylaw 146, Sechelt's new zon- \  ing bylaw, was tabled for an \  extra two weeks in order to give <]  new Alderman Morgan Thomp-}  son time to study the document. \.  The bylaw has been approved ���  by Victoria and now awaits adop-:  tion by council Council also indi- ���  cated there would be an amend-<  ment to one or two words that \.  were ambiguous. ?  ���       ���       ���  Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth sug- .  gested to council that with a new;;  provincial  government   in   Victoria,   local   authorities   should,,  make another application for a ;  second health inspector for the t.  Sunshine Coast. Applications to f  the   former   government   were ;-  turned   down   because   it   wasv"?~\  claimed the province suffered^'a^i  shortage of health inspectors.        ''  ".'.     -*".   ' *       ���       /C  Aid. Ernie Booth, acting mayor  in the absence of Harold Nelson,  informed council that Sechelt's  new firehall was now substantially finished. The new fire hall is  located on Inlet Avenue adjacent  to the present firehall.  ��� ��� ���  Sechelt's provisional budget for  1976 was adopted. The budget, in  the amount of $333,083, was increased by 15 percent over last  year. Council noted the increase  covers inflation and also assumes  an increased tax base, continued  gas revenue, continued grants  from the gas revenue sharing act,  and proposed increase in municipal assistance.  The finance committee recommended that all salaries of village employees be increased by  'ten^percent except?'the salary of  ihe^ building inspector, which  was tabled, for further discus-  soin. Council accepted the recommendation.  Sechelt backs inspector  Sechelt Council has made it  clear that recent statements  made by a former alderman concerning Building Inspector Roy  Taylor are not the opinion of  council.  At a regular meeting last  Wednesday, council passed a motion of confidence supporting  Roy Taylor, building inspector  for both Sechelt and Gibsons.  Referring to statements made  by former Aid. Norm Watson to  the effect that the building inspector's "track record shows he  is not entirely objective in his  thinking," Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth said last week it was the  opinion of one member of council, and not of the entire council.  At the December 17 council  meeting however, when the controversial statements were made,  no resolution was put forward  either supporting or denying  former Aid. Watson's statements  ��� At last week's meeting Aid.  Year's  building  down  The Building Inspectors report  for 1975 showed that total permits were down compared to last  year. In 1974 there were 62 new  starts, while 1975 only had 60,  with a total value of $1,283,000.  The 1974 permits totalled $3,062,-  000.  Aid. Metzler reported that the  wharf netted $10,728��� in revenues last year. More than double  that figure will be needed to complete replacement and improvement of lighting on the wharf.  The existing lights will be replaced by a Sidney electrical firm  with 250 watt street light fixtures  at a total cost of $24,000.  Aid. Lang reported that Dougal  Headlands and Glen roads need  repairs as soon as possible due to  heaving and erosion this winter.  Roads in the Bluff area and Sargent rd. are also in need of reconstruction. Gower Point road  will be completed as soon as  weather conditions permit the  pouring of new cement curbing  and an additional inch of asphalt.  Shuttleworth said the incident  was turned into "a storm in a  taecup" adding that if he knew  the press was going to print the  story, he would have contradicted Watson's statements.  Supporting the motion of confidence, Aid. Frank Leitner  added: "I have talked to quite a  few people and they seem to be  satisfied with the work of the  building inspector."  Expect more  earthquakes  Large and damaging earthquakes have occurred in this  area in the past and we can expect them to occur again.  So states the Victoria Geophysical observatory in a report on  earthquakes that shook the Sunshine Coast and other coastal  areas recently. The report, submitted to Sechelt council after  that village requested information  regarding earthquakes in this  area, also stated that the recent  quakes and aftershocks in this  area were centred in the Strait  of Georgia half way between  Vancouver and Nanaimo.  . "This was one of the small  earthquakes which occur quite  regularlyin southwest British Columbia," the report states. It  adds that most of the quakes are  too small to be felt but several  times 'a year earthquakes are  large enough and close enough to  a population centre to be felt.  The report continues: Thus far,  our studies of these small events  have not led to the identification  of any potentially dangerous  faults in southwestern B.C.  However, large and dangerous  earthquakes have occurred in historical time and we can expect  them to occur again. For this  reason Sechelt is included in Zone  three in the National Building  Code seismic risk map.Statistically we expect earthquake shaking of damaging proportions to  occur in the Sechelt area about  once in a hundred years.  In a more recent letter, Sechelt  ��� council has noted that Mt. Elphinstone is an extinct volcano and  inquiries are being made regarding possible commercila geo-ther-  mal energy under that mountain.  Gibsons. He will be backed up by  alternate Kurt Hoehne who represented Gibsons on the board  last year.  Sechelt Alderman Morgan  Thompson took the oath as the  representative for Sechelt. He  fills the seat left vacant by Norm  Watson.  Edward Johnson, the Hopkins  Landing resident who beat out  Frank West in area E, was also  sworn in as was Barry Pearson  representing area C (Davis Bay-  Selma Park) and John Patterson  representing area A (Pender Harbour).  At the school board meeting in  Gibsons, also held last Thursday,  Celia Fisher was elected to take  Man  ... . '     *z  acquitted^  - insani  Sunshine Coast Disposal Service was awarded the 1976 garbage pick-up contract for the village of Sechelt with a bid of $525  per month. The new bid represented a $125 per month increase over last year's rates.  Tom Gory representing Sunshine  Coast Disposal, told council Wednesday there were 47 more  picu-ups this year as compared  to last: Council felt the new rate  was justified by the new pick-ups  and a general 10 percent increase.  ���   ���'    ���        ���  Council's decision on buying a  street sweeper has been postponed until May. One model being considered was in the neighborhood of $10,000 but it was indicated that such a large amount  of money would not be spent for a  street sweeping machine. Council  also considered the purchase of  such a machine jointly with Gibsons and Gibsons council will be  approached on that matter some  time in the future.  CELIA FISHER  over the reigns from last year's  chairman Peter Prescesky. The  vice-chairman for this year will  be Maureen Clayton who won the  position by acclamation.  New trustees sworn in were Jo-  Anne Rottluff, representing the  village of Gibsons, and Claus  Spiekermann and Don Douglas  representing rural area B.  The first order of business for  the new Chairman was to regretfully accept the resignation of Mr.  Lloyd Yorkston as Assistant Secretary-Treasurer of the Board effective April 30.  In other School Board news,  Nancy Wallander, representing  the Sunshine Coast Cultural Society, was present at last Thursday's meeting to affirm the  Board's, support in principle for a  cultural centre on the Coast, possibly as an addition to the new Sechelt Junior High Gymnasium.  She said the addition would not  be drastic, only a larger wing area  and higher ceiling on the stage  area. Ms. Wallander was appointed to the planning committee of  the. new school to achieve the  changes, jf they are feasible*.. It  was also noted that if an application was made, the Department of  Recreation and Conservation may  be able to supply funds for the alterations.  A Nelson Island man was ac>  quitted for reasons of insanity;  after facing charges of forcible  seizure and dangerous use of a  firearm.  Edward Robin Howett, 32, was  acquitted by Sechelt provincial  court Judge Ian Walker last Wed-:  nesday after psychiatric tests indicated he was not responsible  for his actions on the afternoon  of August 27 when the accused  shot and wounded another Nelson Island resident, Ralph Payne.  Howitt was ordered by Judge  Walker to be under the strict  custody of Riverview Hospital  until the Lieutenant-Governor  makes a further decision on the  matter.  Police said Howitt was arrested in Green Bay August 28 after  shooting 29 year old Ralph Payne  in the hip with a .22 calibre  rifle. The incident occurred in the  Moon Bay area of Nelson Island.  An acquaintance of Payne, Roma  Bonwick, 19, of New Westminster was also present but apparently hid in the woods and  escaped injury.  Stolen  vehicle  Sechelt RCMP are asking assistance in the location of a car  stolen on the evening of December 22. The vehicle is a 1969 Dat-  sun two-door, red in color, with  B.C. license plate number PTD-  600.  RCMP said they have not been  able to locate the vehicle and  would appreciate public assistance in doing so.

In defense of the reporter  The question of fair and objective  reporting sits in the shoulders of any  newspaper reporter like the yoke on  the oxen's back. Objective reporting, a  newspaper veteran will adamantly tell  you, is the dictum that any reporter  must live by. Objective reporting, another newspaper veteran will tell you just  as adamantly is hogwash because it does  not and cannot exist. It cannot exist because of the very fact that reporters have  minds, opinions, and biases, and no matter how hard a reporter strives for objectivity, the biases, no matter how  subliminal, cannot be erased.  In one sense then, the Sechelt  Village Clerk's criticism (see letter to the  editor, this page) of a story that appeared in the December 23 issue of the  Coast News may be valid. But the suggestion that such a story affects the  credibility of this newspaper, we cannot  agree with.  The creation of a news story usually  involves the process of a reporter observing an activity, jotting down notes, and  then going to the typewriter to produce  the "copy." During this process the reporter searches for an "angle" in his  story. The angle serves to place the  story in a given perspective and it gives  that story a meaning and a justification.  The particular story that concerns  us here involves the accusation by a Sechelt council member that the village  building inspector may be biased in some  of his decisions concerning the granting  of building permits.  That accusation came out in the discussion of a particular incident involving  the building inspector, the village clerk  and a Sechelt resident.  In the discussion of that incident, .  former Sechelt Alderman Norm Watson  made it quite clear more than once that  in his opinion, the building inspector, and  we quote, "has allowed his personal  feelings to carry him awa'y on more than  one occasion."  According to the reporter's judgment, it was not the petty, personal dis- .  pute between the building inspector and  the Sechelt resident accused of building  without a permit that constituted the  most important "news," but rather the  idea that, according to former Alderman  Watson, some Sunshine Coast residents  may be denied a building permit because  of certain  biases  on   the  part  of the  building inspector.  During and after the council meeting  concerned, some members of council  agreed that the whole incident was  really nothing and members of the  press were told the story was not worth  reporting. That, obviously, was their  opinion, but not the opinion of the reporter for this newspaper. Quite the opposite, actually, because if an official  elected representative states, and we  quote again, ". . .his (the building inspector's), track record- shows that he is  not entirely objective in his thinking,"  we trust that representative is not speaking merely to make a noise.  If the representative makes the  statement that the building inspector may  be biased in some of his decisions then  we, as a newspaper, feel responsible to  our readers and the residents of this area,  to report that statement. We do not feel  responsible to members of Sechelt council who suggested that we kindly not  bother with the article because, according  to their opinion, there is no news in it  and it's therefore not worth reporting.  One further point we would like to  clear up involves the claim by Sechelt  council that the statements made by former Aid. Watson do not represent the  feelings of council. As far as this newspaper, and the reporter, are concerned,  what any elected official states between  the time a public meeting is called to  order and the time that meeting is  adjourned is the responsibility of the  elected body on which that representative  holds a position. That is especially so  when the representative concerned is  acting mayor ��� as was the case in ,this  incident.; (  ��� -After the discussion during the December 17 meeting, Sechelt council  made no resolution whatsoever either  supporting or denying the statements  made by former Aid. Watson. We feel  that if those statements should not have  been printed, they should not have been  said.  In the opinion of this newspaper,  and in the opinion of the reporter involved, we feel that being responsible to  the public, even sometimes at the expense of embarrassing some of the officials involved, does not indicate a lack  of credibility.  Depression fever  At times one wonders if the media,  press and radio, are not intent upon  thrusting the dreaded depression down  the people's throats. They quote unemployment and depression percentages  and talk stridently about the depression's threat to this western world's  high standard of living. It sounds almost  as if these so-called signs of an economic  crisis are for deserved faults we've committed against the sacred principles of  that clay-footed god, our present economic set-up. Press and radio sound almost  glad, if somewhat depressed ��� as if the  world is getting something it eminently  deserves. All these threats of doom are  so smug and so all-knowing.  Let's take a look at one of these  threatened idols ��� the lowering of this  western civilization's present high standard of living. What's so wrong about  lowering it? What would be lost? Certainly nothing that really matters. We would  certainly learn to be more discriminatory  ��� to judge by quality, rather than transi  ent fads ��� to cut out those things we  may have grown accustomed to, but don't  really need.  Some are doing this unconsciously.  Note the number of people who pause  nowadays to conscientiously read content  labels, and compare ounces. How very  empty the store shelves would become  if all the products which are simply over-  refinements of foods, and cleaning conveniences to save time and effort, were  removed. The modern fast pace of living  has made these products seem necessities.  With depression and work shortages, people would have more time and  these so-called necessities would disappear. While none of these changes  would work drastic differences in our  standard of living, they would certainly  reduce the sheer cost of living. Why  not give it a try? Perhaps it may help  to lower the inflationary cost of ordinary necessities, such as potatoes, eggs,  milk and sugar.  ���White Rock-Surrey Sun.   i i i i > ��� .���'.'A>.'.^.^.,.'  p^��^^v��"^^*^"*���  ���iiiiiiiiliilili  V.V.V,,,,.,.'.'.'.'.'.'.'.'.'.'.V  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council seeks to fin  ance its $845,000 sewage project  in part through the provincia  government.

Letters to the Editor  INSENSITIVITY  Editor: An open letter to Dr.  PatMcGeer:  Dear Dr. McGeer:  Your announcement yesterday  of ICBC increases, and your statement regarding teacher salaries  and the federal government wage  and price controls show an  unbelieveable insensitivity to the  situation of middle and lower income British Columbians.  Your statement, broadcast on  CBC television on January 2, that  those who cannot afford car insurance should  sell  their  cars  shows unbelieveable arrogance.  While I agree that the automobile  is  an  inefficient  mode  of  transportation and ideally should  not be subsidized by government,  it is a fact that the private automobile is a necessity in B.C. Are  you  aware that there are vast  areas of this province which are f  not served by transit buses on^a||.  15 minute shuttle schedule? Jn^  fact   that   have   no   alternative^?  transportation whatever? f  As long as urban transportation  is subsidized, it is necessary that.  rural transportation be subsidized'  either  by   auto   insurance   discounts or by initiation of regular  rural transit systems. The 10%  surtax on gasoline  initiated by ���  the previous government was intended as a transportation subsidy, and it must be made clear  how your government intends to  use it.  With regard to your statement  that teachers' salaries must meet  the federal wage guidelines, it is  evidence of your insensitivity that  you would make this statement inv  the same breath as your announcement of the insurance increases. As a teacher, I believe in  the guidelines, and was happy to  comply with them in our contract  this year, however if government  agencies are to be as irresponsible as yours, there is no way  that a just standard of living  can be maintained. Already almost one third of my anticipated  net increase this year will be taken by the ICBC, and I have only  one car at the minimum rate. It is  impossible to expect individuals  to take a reasonable attitude with  an unreasonable government.  A government cannot serve its  citizens inless it is sensitive to the  needs of all. It is strongly evident  that you are not sensitive to those  needs.  ���W.B.FORST,  Gibsons. .  A SALES PITCH  Editor: Mr. Dykstra must obviously be motivated by the dictum that' sensation sells papers.  This can be the only conclusion  from reading his account of the  "Gordon-building inspector" incident aired in Sechelt council on  December 17.  Statements by Alderman Watson were taken out of context,  reported to the exclusion of any  other statements made, and magnified out of all proportion by  the sensational front page headline, leading all and sundry to  believe that Sechelt council has  no confidence in its building  inspector or clerk. Anyone read-  ?ing 'a different account of the  "same incident would never believe they were reading the same  story. The Coast News report was  all the more incredible in the light  of the same edition's editorial  urging the populace to back up  their village council.  Unless a retraction of the said  article is made, the credibility  of the paper is in danger. It is  to be hoped that the motion of  confidence in its building inspector that was made in Sechelt  council on January 17 will be  correctly reported.  ���THOS. W. WOOD,  Village Clerk.  Editor's note: See editorial In  Defence of the Reporter.  SOMEPRAISE  Editor: The Gibsons Auxiliary  thanks you for your good coverage in the past, and hopes we will  enjoy the same in 1796. We believe the auxiliaries serve a vital  service in our community, and are  grateful to you for helping us  make known our work. We believe new members are encouraged to join as they realize from our  news reports just what we are  doing.  ���JOANB.RIGBY,  Publicity,  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary.   .  TRUSTEE REPLIES  Editor: .This is in reply to an  open letter by Mrs. Anita Strom-  quist who expressed disappointment that- the- school board  had not, sanctioned a trip to  Mexico by some Grade seven  pupils. Since my name appeared  in Mrs; Strbrnqiiist's letter, I  should like to express my views  on student travel.  As a member of the board, I  ��� have to consider, all children in  the school district in making a decision. 1 had to take into consideration the' fact that for whatever reason, barely half of the  Gibsons grade seven, students  were able to undertake the 1975  Mexico trip. -Considerable com:  munity support resulted in bene-,  fits, tp-a small number.of privileged children. .'<" '  "Had I been a member of-ihe  Board when the 1975 trip was  sanctioned, I might Jiave expressed my disappointment that the  community support had not been  applied to a less ambitious project which could have included  all the Grade seven classmates.  Mrs. Stromquist has her own  ideas about a community's responsibility to its youth. Surely  it is not to indulge a privileged  few!  In my opinion, the community's  responsibility to its youth is twofold:  1. To provide the best facilities  the community can afford, in the  form of schools, playgrounds,  libraries, recreational facilities  and caring personnel to Work with  the young people;  2. To provide opportunities  for involvement and 'service for  all ages, including the children.  Surely we do not all have to be  bused to Mexico to experience a  "foreign" culture! Here on the  Sunshine Coast we have many  cultures which offer unequalled  opportunities to learn how to work  together in more productive  ways. Through our schools,-our  children are being exposed to an  ever broadening understanding of  our environment, its use and misuse. I support practical field trip  experiences, combined with appropriate classroom instruction.  The advantage of these locally  developed programs is that every  child can participate.  As a board member I hope that  this ever growing knowledge of  the community being developed  in the, .schools will develop  "civic pride." Through education  we may be able to reduce vandalism, shop-lifting, petty thieving,  damage to public and private  property. A Grade seven student  should, as his civic responsibility, be generating positive and  constructive attitudes toward law  and order,'and toward those in  the community less fortunate  than himself.  I have no quarrel with the Thesis that travel is good for anyone.  It is my opinion that extended  vacation-field trips should be financed by parents (or groups of  parents) and should not be delegated to our teaching staff,  in  school time, with a consequent  drain on the -tax dollars which  have to be stretched 'to cover all/  children  in  the ^School   District*  in a fair and equitable manner.  -^MAUREEN CLAYTON:  THE ENTIRE WATCH  Editor: Regarding your article on  the Elves Christmas project in the  January 6 issue of the Coast News  the list of contributors contained  the names of Mrs. Jardine, Mrs.  Blomberg and Mrs. Fossett.

In memory  of Hunachin  Princess  by LES PETERSON  Once upon a time, so the Se-  chelts say, a young princess  named Klaya-Klaya-Klye lived at  the village of Hunachin, at the  head of what is now called Jervis  Inlet.  Late in the year, according to  this story, the husband of this  young princess was hunting  Swayt-Lye, the mountain goat,,  high up the slopes of Min-Atch-,  the mountain behind Kulse, Mt..  Victoria, which stood behind their:.  village.  A herd of goats the three bra-- .  thers were following suddenly-'  disappeared. Upon searching, the if  hunters discovered the entrance.,  to a cave, partially concealed by  some bushes. Inside the cave' :  were the goats. The brothers rec-- !  ognized the cave as the one in������*  which their, ancestors, ages be-. ���  fore, had sought refuge from' '���  Paht-Ah-Mohss, the Great Flood;  A sudden snowstorm forced the'; ���  men to remain through the sever* ���!  est weeks of winter in this cave. "  When the first signs of spring ap- ���  peared, they made their way:.'  down the mountainside toward ;  their village, where they could';  see, from high up, that their peo-:,:  pie were fishing the first run of ��� <.  herring. ���-.:  As they neared home, they met.:  a young boy, practising with his  bow and arrow.  Of shoes and ships and sealing wax  by ROB DYKSTRA  For some time now California has been some sort of window on the western world and  especially so for the eastern  part of this continent. Picture  those snobby easterners peering reluctantly but so enviously across the great plains and  over the Rockies to keep a  checking eye on what was happening in the Sunshine state.  Whether it was fashion or  sexual mores, it was sure to  start in California and then  dissipate slowly to the east and  the north.  California was and is definitely unestablishment and if the  girl from New York City and  the boy from the Arkansas  farm came to realize that the  streets weren't really paved  with gold, it didn't really matter because the most important California experience is  symbolized by the freedom of  cruising up and down the Sunset Strip or perhaps flying  down the Ventura Highway on  a hot summer Sunday afternoon.  Having popularized an entire culture based paradoxically on freedom of spirit and  crass commercialism, those indigenous and ingenious Cali-  fornians are now popularizing  a state of mind. It's the state of  being mellow.  The word mellow is certainly  not a new word in our diction.  In the past we have used it in  reference to anything we  wanted to describe as quiet,  relaxed, smooth, soft, sweet,  juicy. According to one American dictionary, the root word  'melu' means soft and rich. In  California, the basic meaning  of the word has not been altered drastically except that,  in the popular culture at least,  the adjective applies almost  exclusively to people and furthermore it's a word that's  used quite prodigiously when  talking about people. In other  words, the Californians have  again taken an otherwise pedestrian item and are in the  process of turning it into a  myth. A California myth.  The guy in the bar describes  himself as feeling mellow after  having a few beers. He then  goes on to talk about his Viet  Nam experience and says that  after spending almost three  years in the jungle he returned more of a mellow man.  Not a mature or a more  thoughtful man, but definitely  more mellow.  On the other hand, his  younger brother escaped the  draft by going to British Columbia. His brother lives in  Vancouver now and he hasn't  seen him in a number of  years. But from his letters he  can tell the guy has turned  into a real mellow person.  And that's probably because  of the influence of that city.  Compared to Los Angeles,  Vancouver is a mellow place to  live.  On another night I was  sitting on the beach with a  young lady from San Diego.  The moon was out over the  water, a light Pacific breeze  rustled the palms behind us,  and the wine earlier that night  had been good. I told her I  thought it was all very romantic. She said no, it wasn't  romantic at all and before I  could ask her to explain the  denial, she informed that,  rather, it was mellow. I then  asked her to explain the dif  ference between what I was  trying to convey with my word  and what she was trying to  convey with her word. She  looked at the sea and sighed  and after a few minutes she  said she didn't feel like engaging in a polemic on semantics because at that point she  felt all too mellow for. anything  like that. I should have known.  In California, the word mellow in unequivocally applied to  that person on the very verge  of Nirvana. And just as in  India, it's a terrible faux pas  to eat with your left hand, in  California it's terribly uncool  to use mellow when talking  about kumquats or pipe tobacco.  I suggest that the enterpren-  eurs in New York, and the rest  of us on the North American  continent for that matter, get  the hang of the word, as it  were, because the joie de vivre  of the California Pepsi generation is about to be replaced by.  mellow yellow.  Can you dig it?  v  I  -> *  *��  LENAJOE  - "Is ,my, wife afe'home?" the j  eldest brother asked the young ;  boy.  "No,"     he     replied.     "She  thought you were dead, and has  ;  left the village. *' The second bro-  ,  ther received the  same  reply.  "And what of my wife, Klaya-  ]  Klaya-Klye?" the youngest brother asked.  "She is at home, waiting for  ;  you," said the boy.  Because the young princess-  had remained faithful to her hus- ;  band, through the long winter  when all hope for his survival  seemed lost, the aristocrats of  Hunachin held a great Kluhn-  Uhn-Ahk, a celebration that later  came to be known throughout this  coast by its Chinook name, the  Potlach. At this occasion, to  which many important guests  were invited, the young woman  was set on a great swing, a Kay- "  Kah-Toh, made from the hair of  the Swayt-Lye, symbol of wealth  ���but only the great chiefs were  allowed to push her.  The late Lena Joe, nee Jeffries, could trace her heritage  directly back to Klaya-Klaya-Klye-  When, in the last year of her  life, her husband, Clarence, Sechelt Band Manager, commissioned the building of a modern  fish boat for the family, Lena insisted that the vessel be named  the Hunachin Princess, in commemoration of her illustrious  ancestor.  Such insistence typified the  calm but firm resolution that sustained the life of this woman,  whose passing removes from her  people another of their very few  links with a tradition that reaches  back into times immemorial.  Lena Joe came from a long line  of women who, generation after  generation, unflinchingly faced  ceaseless toil to nurture their  people and to perpetuate their  culture.  Seeing six homes burn, with all  worldly goods  ��� most  during  times of little help from beyond  her people ��� she managed to .  raise her family strong.  Never obviously guiding, she  led " her children, her grandchildren, and even great grandchildren along a difficult path, out  of an older, into a newer kind of  world.  During even her years of suffering, her home never failed to  feel and to reflect her presence. Only a short time before  she died, she spent her day ���  as she had spent many years of  days ��� knitting for her family.  Beyond  even   the  clan ..over  whom she presided as Matriarchy  we who knew her will sorely miss-  Lena Joe.

From a tippling southern lawyer in Easy Rider, to a suave  private eye in Chinatown to the  unkempt, unscrupulous schemer  of Mike Nochols The Fortune  . . .Jack Nicholson never plays  two roles alike.  The only repetition in Nicholson's career, in fact, is the frequency with which he receives  Academy Award nominations.  There have been four to date, and  it will come as no surprise if his  slovenly, light-heartedly lecherous characterization in The Fortune results in yet another.  Columbia Pictures' zany comedy  is about two fortune hunters who  use matrimony and murder plots  to separate a 1920s heiress from  her wealth.  Born and raised in Neptune,  New Jersey, Nicholson came to  Los Angeles at the age of 17 and  supported himself with employment in pool halls, toy stores and,  finally, the animation department  of the MGM studios. He began  acting on television and became  a regular on such daytime programs as Divorce Court and  Matinee Theatre.  His first movie was The Cry  Baby Killer, directed by Roger  Corman, in 1958. In the next few  years, Nicholson worked with  Corman in 11 films.  In 1973, he starred in The Last  Detail, directed by Hal Ashby  and adapted by Robert Towne  from Daryl Ponicsan's novel. In  1973 and 1974, he also made The  Passenger for Michelangelo An-  tonioni and Chinatown for Roman Polanski.  Nicholson has been nominated  for an Academy Award for Five  Easy Pieces, The Last Detail,  and Chinatown. In 1974, he  received the Best Actor Award at  the Cannes Film Festival for his  performance in The Last Detail.  The Fortune plays at the Twilight Theatre in Gibsons January  18, 19 and 20. The film is rated  Mature.  SCOTLAND HIGHEST  Scotland has the highest casualty rate in the British Isles for  pedestrians, according to a recent  report.

This is a question that is being  asked by many consumers today.  It was also the question asked by  the federal Food Prices Review  Board. In the most recent quarterly report the board notes that  during 1973 and much of 1974,  the chief reason for the increasing  food prices was rising domestic  and international prices for many  ������- raw food commodities, including  grains, oilseeds, sugar and beef.  ', The board specifically concluded  that labor costs and food company  profits were not major contributors to food price increases during  -   much of that period.  The situation has now changed.  The cost of farm products is still  the  major  influence   on   rising  food prices. However, the prices  of those farm commodities which  have declined do not necessarily  result in retail price decreases of  ������'   the same dimensions. The reason  '���   for this is the behavior of other  I    costs beyond the farm gate/ The  board's  forthcoming  report   on  ;    food company profits examines  ;   these cost increases (as well as  '    changes in profits) in some detail.  It is evident that labor costs are  now an important factor influencing the rise in food prices. Average hourly earnings in the food  and beverage industry, which had  increased by 15 percent from 1973  ���;.   to 1974, rose a further 15 percent  during the first sue months  of  :    1975 to a level about 3 percent  .    above that of earnings in this industry in the U.S. Since 1973 paid  .. worker productivity in all industries has been declining and in  the first half of 1975 the rate of  ���;. decline accelerated, while, in the  .r same period, the cost of wages  and salaries per unit of output  ^ rose by 17.5 percent, the highest  t rate of increase in recent years.  ;..     The recent supermarket labor  . dispute    in    British    Columbia  / brings this problem into focus.  .-������. After examination of proposals by  ���*; both sides of the dispute,  the  ';. board concluded that both the  ���';" current demands of the food in-  ; dustry and the current offer by  * .the employers exceed what the  board would regard as a responsible increase under present economic   conditions,   and   would  have a significant impact on food  prices.  *��     Available    statistics    indicate  H that rising energy costs had a sig  nificant impact on food prices  from 1970 to 1974. This impact  will doubtless have been increased by the further rise in energy  costs in 1975. However, there are  other factors that are relatively  more important.  The board has now appealed  for restraint in income demands  in every quarterly report since  last September as a condition for  dealing effectively with food price  inflation. In spite of this, British  Columbia, which is already faced  with the highest urban-area food  prices in the country, is on the  verge of yet another rise in food  industry labor costs. It may well  be that a high food industry settlement in British Columbia could  have an inflationary impact on the  food industry and other labor  settlements elsewhere in the  country. In the end, it will be the  consumer who will pay.  The OECD estimates that increases ��� in  unit  labor  costs   in  Canada,   along   with   those   in.  France, the United Kingdom and  Italy,  will  be  in  the  two-digit  range during 1975, and that in  Canada, the United Kingdom and  Italy, these increases will exceed  those in 1974. Canada is the only  one of the ten major OECD nations whose foreign merchandise  trade balance worsened in the  first half of 1975 as compared to  the second half of 1974.  The spiral of wages and prices,  or prices and wages, must be arrested. But how does that happen? Who takes the first step?  Is it the responsibility of unions to  demand less than "what the market will bear" for their members,  even at the risk that their incomes  relative to those who are  less  public-minded might be eroded?  Is it the responsibility of business  leaders to resist any rise in wages  and salaries that would cause labor costs to rise and, therefore,  selling prices to rise even at the  risk of an extended shutdown of  operations and the loss of business to competitors and serious'  inconvenience to consumers? Is  it the responsibility of businessmen to deliberately hold or reduce profit margins, to maintain  or reduce the return on shareholder investment, even at the  risk of curtailing internally generated cash flow or reducing the  firm's ability to attract outside  capital finance for fixed capital  investment for new plant,  new  machinery and for job expansion?  Or is it the responsibility of governments with their own wage  and hiring policies ever before  the public eye, and with their immense and ultimate power over  spending, taxing, money creation  and demand management? Who  will take the first step?  Good year for Auxiliary  ByJOANRIGBY  It was encouraging to meel  with 32 members of the Gibsons  Hospital Auxiliary. The annual  reports of the various areas oi  service were gratifying and an incentive to work with enthusiasm  in 1976. Eleven auxiliary members served 203 hours in the extended care department of the  hospital. Two double birthday  parties were given, and patients  were taken to shop in Sechelt,  along with the hours of 'ordinary' doings.  Eight bridge parties were enjoyed by an average of ten  tables, zten auxiliary members  served 200 hours in the Hospital  Gift Shop, and the ladies served  207 hours in the Thrift Shop.

After coming back  on Monday with bleary and,  gummed eyes we students of El-  phie accepted the fact that,  school is definitely not out forever.  Basketball got back into full  swing with the Senior Boys winning over Caribou 82-49 and losing to Port Coquitlam'77-85. The  Senior Boys have won 10 out  of 14 games. The Junior Boys,  however, cannot boast such a  record. They were trounced by  Edmonds this week 82-54.  The Student Council had a  meeting on Friday that very  nearly had serious results. It  was the very first meeting in  Seminar Room Two. Turnout  was nearly 100 percent. At first,  talk was informal. Then the subject of the lunch room came up  and the most renowned janitor  in the school, Mr. Stew, was  reportedly getting disgusted  with going into the lunchroom  every day after lunch and pick-,  ing up three garbage bags full  of old lunches and other paraphernalia.  "What are you going to do  about it?" was the question  asked. It was suggested that  only seniors should be allowed  in, hoping that would smarten  the juniors up. "Who said it's  the juniors?" screeched the jun-'  iorreps. "How many seniors do  you see in there?" asked our  presidnet, Susan Dixon. There  was a sullen silence. "Just  isn't fair," grumbled one. A  huge meaningless squabble  then ensued, while Scott Ver-  rachia and this writer discussed the feasibility of adapting an eight-track player to the.  P.A. system for the radio  club.  Gradually, banter and sweet  reason prevailed and it was  agreed the reason nobody respects the lunchroom is because  there's nothing to respect.  "I mean, what are you going  to eat on the ping-pong table?"  asked vice-president Pat Gaines  He was referring to the ancient,  byD.J.HAUKA  decrepit ping pong table placed  in the middle of the room. It  takes four tables just to hold the  wretched thing up.  We need tables to eat on,  clean chairs and more garbage  cans, was the general consensus. The only problem is the  chronic table shortage. The ping  pong table will just have to find  some way to defy the law of  gravity. The regular tables ordered for the lunchroom, of  course, haven't arrived yet.  The students were finally able  to tell what they felt was needed  to be done in our new school.

Being one of the boys  isn't always easy  by ROB DYKSTRA  Sitting upsrairs and watching  the hockey game from the comfort of the lounge, you could hear  them all cheer for her, especially the ladies.  "Come on Edna!" "Way to go,  Edna!" "Nice save Edna!"  For most local hockey fans it's  no big deal anymore but for the  odd newcomer who watches that  small figure bundled up in goal-  tender's equipment, stopping  hard drives from the blue line,  it does produce a raised eyebrow  or two.  Edna Naylor, goaltender. A  young lady who one day thought  she would like to play hockey and  did. zdespite the fact that all her  teammates are men. Which  brings us to the question: What is  a nice girl like you doing in a  place like this?  "It all started out as a bit of a  joke," Edna said, explaining how  she got to be number one goal-  tender for a men's hockey team  called the Pontoons. "Last year  we wanted to start a scrub hockey  team in Roberts Creek but all of a  sudden hockey became very serious for everyone. One of the  teams needed a goaltender and  nobody else wanted to take it so I  did."  So Edna bought herself a pair  of goalie skates, about $500 worth  of equipment, and even though  she had never skated before, she  put on the pads, stepped out on  the ice and became one of the  boys, so to speak. And now no  one thinks anything about it.  Well, Edna admits, there are  some problems sometimes. Dress  ing rooms, for instance. Edna  says in a matter of fact way that  she dresses in the same room as  the other players but every once  in a while before the game, one of  the players, a newcomer obviously, asks Edna where she is going  to dress. And Edna shrigs her  shoulders and says, in the dressing room, of course, where do you  think? She does make sure that  she s finished changing before  anyone goes into the shower,  though.  She hastens to add that she  hopes she's not offending any of  the fellows'wives.  "If I thought some of them  were against it, I would drop out  right now."  Hockey is important to Edna.  EDNA NAYLOR tending her goal. She  says with all the equipment  on   it's  almost impossible to get hurt.  M.V. Titanium  and/or M.V.

EDNA NAYLOR  She tried to start al all girls  team last year and only a few girls  expressed any interest. Certainly  not enough to sustain a hockey  team. But Edna already had her  mind made up about playing  hockey, so play she did. And after  a couple of times on the ice and a  few bruises to reward her efforts,  her interest grew.  Mind you, Edna is not a total  stranger to sports. When she was  a student at Elphinstone Secondary, she won the most valuable  female athlete three times in a  row. She also accumulated the  most points for track and field  three      years      in      a      row.  As a matter of fact, Edna  nearly went to the Olympics in  1968. She had participated in several provincial track and field  finals and one year in Trail she  ran in the half-mile and also decided to enter the javelin throw.  As it turned out she won second  spot in the javelin and the following year she went to the Western  Canadian, finals and won the  championship.  Sports officials then asked her  to participate in Mexico but Edna  didn't want to go. She regrets  that now but says at the time she  really wasn't interested.  "Training for individual sports  is hard work," Edna says. "I  like team sports much better.  It's the enthusiasm and the  team spirit I like and everyone  gets a chance to participate. If I  had the chance to go to the  Olympics again I'd probably keep  up the training though.''  But she's too involved in hockey now. Most nights there's a  hockey game on television, Edna  will try to watch it. She watches  the goaltenders especially, to see  if she can pick up any pointers.  The best goaltender in the  NHL? Rogatien Vachon. Why?  "probably because he's small and  1 identify with him," she says.  She likes the Russian style of  hockey the best, though, because  she's not too keen on a hard  hitting style of game. When the  Russians were here she kept a  close eye on Vladislav Tretiak, the  goaltender for the Soviet Army  team.  Is Edna a little afraid of getting  in front of a hard blue line slap-  shot?  "No, I'm not really afraid at  all," she says, "as long as I can  see it coming. It's really hard to  get hurt with all that equipment  on. And the guys don't favor me.  Once you get wrapped up in the  game you forget all about taking  it easy."  Does Edna feel like a women's  maverick   in   a   men's   world?  "I believe in equal pay for  equal work," she says, "but it  stops there." She feels that in  sports as long as you can meet  the    requirements,    it's    O.K.  Edna wishes she was about a  foot taller because then she could  cover the net a little better. But  that is her only regret. That she's  a female in a man's game doesn't  bither her at all. The only thing  that concerns her is being able to  go and do what you want to do.  "I don't understand people  who sit around and do nothing."  And Edna also says she would  be lost if she couldn't play hockey  And what would hockey be without Edna Naylor?  Public skating  enjoyed by all ages  The new Gibsons Winter Club  was opened for public sakting  shortly after Christmas, with  times set up to protect the younger skaters. The club was happy  to see that most people agreed  with this and came at the allotted times.  Many thanks to volunteers for  time given to supervise skaters  from Winter Club organizers.  Without their help, skating would  not have been possible.  Hopefully curling will be starting this week and without any  setbacks it should be possible.  Curlers are asked to contact  Art Craze (886-9882), Marlene  Biornson (886-7037) or Haig Maxwell (886-2045) for drawings,  whether or not they are debenture holders.  The equipment needed for curling will be: rubbers or curling  shoes, a warm jacket or sweater  and a pair of gloves. Brooms can  be rented for a small charge  or purchased through the club.  A general meeting will be held  on Monday, January 26, and all  members are asked to attend.  SECHELT  CHRYSLER  Division of Copping's  Car Town Sales Ltd.

Making a clean sweep  by HARRY TURNER  Since many of you will be going  out and buying equipment for  curling in the new Gibsons Winter Club Arena, let me tell you  a little about picking a curling  broom. There are many types of  broom and depending on the way  you sweep, there is a broom to  match your style. If you sweep  rather straight up, then you will  want a broom with a side bristle  because you will be sweeping  with the end of the broom and  you want to make the widest possible contact with the ice. If you  sweep stooped over, then you will  be sweeping mainly with the side  of the broom so a narrow broom  is appropriate. The more skilled  you are, the more you will bend  and the more effectively a narrow  broom can be used.  Brooms are different in another  way which is not so important to  helping the rock down the ice.  Some brooms are made to make a  loud noise which is supposed to  impress everyone on the ice with  how hard you sweep. One of the  ways the broommakers make  brooms to create noise is to turn  the centre bristles so the thick  side is down. This stiffens the  broom and gives it a loud cracking  sound when swept. It is a hindrance to the beginning sweeper.  because he cannot apply sufficient pressure to make it work. A  hard core broom also wears out  faster and loses more bristles on  the ice surface. Another gimmick  to make the broom crack is to put  a piece of plastic down the centre.  Again 1 question if it has any effect in getting the rock farther  down the ice, which after all is the  object of sweeping.  Besides picking a soft broom, if  you can find one these days, the  beginner should also look for a  broom that is a suitable length.  If necessary you should cut off  the handle. After you have established what is a comfortable  sweeping stance for you, mark  the handle at the top of your upper hand and saw the end off. File  the end round and you are ready  when the skip hollers "Sweep,  sweep!"  PUBLIC NOTICE  COMMISSION OF INQUIRY ON  PROPERTY ASSESSMENT AND  TAXATION  (Public Inquiries Act, R.S.B.C.

Plentiful supplies are available  and consumers would be wise to  take advantage of this economical  source of skim milk and use it frequently throughout the winter.  All instant skim milk powder in  Canada is Canada First Grade  and is fortified with vitamins A  and D so that, with the exception  of fat, it is similar in nutritional  value to fresh whole milk. An  eight ounce glass of skim milk  made from powder contains 90  calories, while an eight-ounce  glass of whole milk contains 160  calories. Used often as a beverage  skim milk powder may provide  extra protein and calcium* when  incorporated into various dishes,  even when the recipe does not  call for milk. It also has all the advantages of a long shelf-life. Unopened packages may keep for  one year on the kitchen shelf and  after they've been opened they  will still keep for two months.  Just be sure the package is closed  tightly after each use; otherwise  the powder tends to pick up moisture and become caked.  Aside from being nutritious  and easy to store, skim milk powder is convenient and economical.  It is simple to measure and mix;  one pound of the powder can be  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 to April 20-  This should be a generally  favourable week.

To make partly  skimmed milk, mix equal quantities of reconstituted skim milk  and whole milk to obtain approximately 2 percent milk.  ' Use the powder right from the  container and sift it with the dry  ingredients for cakes and breads.  Although the usual proportion to  make instant powder into liquid  skim milk is Vi cup to 1 cup  water, the amount of skim milk  powder may .be increased to Vj  cup when making soups and  sauces, in order to give more  body and add extra milk nourishment to these dishes. For meatballs, loaves and patties, add Vi  cup skim milk powder for each  pound of meat, mixed with the  fluids. For mashed potatoes, add  'Ato Vi cup skim milk powder to  each three cups of mashed potatoes; use the cooking water to  give the right consistency. When  using the powder with flour or  crumbs for breading, it is recommended to oven fry the food because the higher temperature of  frying may cause the product  to brown too rapidly.  With main dishes in mind,  Food Advisory Services, Agriculture Canada have created a  "Macaroni and Cheese"; afamily  favorite, this recipe is bound  to please everyone. Cream soups  made with skim milk powder also  give good nourishment at a small  cost. The hearty "Vegetable  Chowder" is well stocked with  vegetables and flavor. As it is  so full of vegetables, there is  no need of flour for thickening.  With croutons and breadsticks, it  can be served to begin an otherwise light meal or as an accompaniment to after-ski" or "after-  skating" chatter.

B.C.Y.P., when it was started  52 years ago by the Tuxis group,  was run as a mock parliament  or* proper parliamentary procedure. Today there is one main difference." We are now a year-round"  service organization.  When we arrived in Victoria  we went straight to parliament  and became familiar with our  desks and procedures and began  the business of discussing and  voting on bills and private members', resolutions. Some subjects  under debate were capital punishment, wage and price controls, educational discrepencies,  physical   fitness,   discipline   in  BILL JAMIESON  schools and municipal amalgamation. We have also started to organize a national Premiers' conference which would hopefully  start an inter-provincial youth  parliament.  Being in caucus and the legislative assembly, sitting where  MLAs sit and passing resolutions  and bills that might actually pass,  and be enacted as laws was an  educational and interesting experience I would highly recommend to other students.  In the area of service work, the  Youth Parliament sponsors a one  week summer camp for underprivileged children who are between the ages of eight and 12.  The camp is held at George Prin-  gle Memorial Camp at Shawnigan  Lake on Vancouver Island. It is  held during the last week of  August.  We are also involved once a  month in work at the Salvation  Army's House of Concord, a  home for juvenile offenders, and  we sponsor two minor league lacrosse teams in East Vancouver.  Most of our work in financed  by tax-deductible bonds. Anyone  wishing to support this organization can do so by contacting  Bill Jamieson at 886-7271.

For  example, the main purpose  of the Export Development Corporation is to  serve as a sales finance  company for Canadian  branch plants of foreign-  owned multi-nationals.  ��� ��� ���  The fiscal and monetary  policies which were designed for a market economy collapsed when conglomerates became powerful enough to set and maintain their own prices. Two  sets of rules are needed  now -- one for the owner  managers, the doers and  risk-takers, and the other  for the bureaucracies of  big business, big-labour  and big government.  ��� ��� ���  The first set of rules requires new tax policies to  encourage entrepreneur-  ship; new government  purchasing policies with  set-aside provisions for  small business; guaranteed  loan programs at favorable  rates; and tough measures  to maintain competition.  ��� ��� ���  Such changes will  strengthen and enlarge the  competitive sector which  employs more than half of  all Canadians. By doing  so they will increase small  business activity and thus  provide a more effective  check on the private  bureaucracies than Ottawa's attempts at regulation.  ��� ��� ���  The pattern has been set  by Japan, where the  government has established five distinct finance  institutions to meet the  needs of small and medium  enterprises. By joining  together in cooperatives ���  of which there are already  50,000 - small firms gain  the scale advantages of  big business without sacrificing the driving force  of their own entrepreneur-  ship.  ��� ��� ���  These cooperatives are  similar to the voluntary  chains formed in Canada,  for example among drug  and hardware retailers.  But the difference is that  the Japanese government  encourages the cooperatives with long-term, low  interest loans. In other  words, the government  wants them to compete  with big business and  makes it possible for them  to do so.  ��� ��� ���  It pays. Small business  creates new jobs at one  tenth the cost of big business. Given the right environment, as in Japan,  the small business community fertilizes ' itself,  soaking up the labour force  as new enterprises spring  up in response to man's  urge to be independent.

This undertaking was given  today by Harry Kenmare, region  al director of the federal old age  security program.  "The forms usually are in the  mail by the end of the old year,"  Mr. Kenmare said, "but this  year there has been a delay in  printing and delivery.''  The federal guaranteed income  supplement to the old age pension is for one year at a time, beginning each April 1. A new application is required each year  because entitlement depends on  income, and marital status, in  the preceding year.
