That was the question of the evening at a Justice Development commission meeting last week, and if the- opinions of the 39  people present are any indication, the answer to the question  is a resounding yes.  SECHELTRESIDENTTom Wood  reads out trie initial  motion recommending retention and enforcement of  the death penalty at last week's Justice Development  Commission meeting in Sechelt.  Sechelt council briefs  Alderman questions employee's work  Aid. Morgan Thompson expressed concern that a village  employee, Gerry Freeborn was  working on the Sechelt Marsh  project; Thompson said it was the  responsibility of the Second Century Fund to develop the marsh  and not Sechelt council. Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth said.the village  lends v^istiflce-; to the project-  when required.  Council will install a 30 MPH  sign on the arena road near Lookout. Council noted that a child  had been struck recently by a  speeding car. The child was apparently not seriously injured.  Council will also ask the Department of Highways to remove  the stop sign recently installed at  the corner of Highway: 101 and  Wharf Road. Instead, council will  ask that a yellow caution light be  installed. Aldermen were concerned that the present stop sign  may cause traffic to back up on  Highway 101 in front of the hospital during the busy summer  season.  Council did not agree with a recommendation from the traffic  advisory committee advising that  the proposed highway through  Sechelt should be elevated to a  height of 30 feet with an underpass for Trail Avenue.  Aid. Morgan Thompson said a  raised highway would cause a tre-  mendtasvoisefotlw^ Aid.  Shuttleworth said it would be  cheaper for the department of  Highways to use fill to raise the  highway than it would be to blow  out a hill that lies in the path of  the highway. Aid. Thompson indicated he didn't care so much  about the cost to the department  of Highways as he did about the  traffic noise in the village that  would result from a raised.  highway.  The Traffic Advisory Committee had also recommended that  parking be eliminated on the  north side of Cowrie Street in the  vicinity of Inlet. Aid. Thompson'  said he' didn't agree with that proposal because "the village has a  parking problem already."  Council will further study the  report from the Traffic Advisory  Committee.  Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth reported that the local branch of the  emergency  measures organization received a $1300 government  - grant recently. Shuttleworth said  the money has been designated  for communication equipment including a citizen's band radio.  ���       *       *  Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth volunteered to be Sechelt's representative on a dog control committee. The committee's other  members are Jim Ironside, representing the regional district and  Kurt Hoehne representing Gibsons. The committee will meet to  discuss Gibsons' recent proposal  for a dog pound to be located in  Gibsons.       .  Aid.  Frank Leitner,  who  is  manager of the meat department  ' at Sechelt's Shop Easy store, said  he would supply bones for the  proposed pound.  * * *  Council expressed concern over  garbage being dumped under the  powerlines. Aid. Thompson said  he would investigate the matter  and try and find out who is dumping the garbage.  plan meeting  The Sechelt Vicinity Planning  Committee has released the details of three possible options for  the future of the Sechelt area.  The public will be given the  chance to express its views on  these options at a meeting to be  held at the Old Legion Hall in  Sechelt Sunday, March 21 at  ��� 2 p.m. The committee, which is  composed of representatives from  Chairman for  Tirnjber Days  Timber days are looking much  better.  This was the comment made by  Sechelt Aid. Frank Leitner last  week as he reported to council  that Sechelt residents were now  beginning to take an interest in  the annual month of May celebration.' ���������'������  Earlier reports from council indicated there was no interest in  organizing the event and council  feared that Timber Days may  have to be cancelled this year.  Last Wednesday night, Aid.  Leitner informed council.that Lil  Fraser has taken on the job of  Timber Days' Chairman. He said  other people have also indicated  their willingness to be involved.  Sechelt village, Sechelt Indian  Band and the Regional District,  will then take these views into  consideration and produce a draft  of a detail plan for the area.  Three options are being presented by the committee, seeing  the Sechelt area as a regional  town, a public recreation centre,  or a resource development centre.  Each option represents a different  amount of development activity in  the vicinity.  The options are designed to  encourage people to think about  the vicinity as a whole, and so  details concerning particular  pieces of property will not be  formulated until the draft plan is  prepared.  Policies that are applicable to  all options involve definite boundaries for the spread of the developed area are established, based  on the agricultural land reserves,  tree farms, parkland, and topographic features. Development  beyond the boundaries is discouraged, and directed to land  within them.  (Continued on Page 41  Former Sechelt Alderman  Norm Watson reported to council  that he had received word from  the provincial government that  the regional district would'have  the sewer function bylaw within  the next two weeks. Ihe bylaw  will allow the regional district to  finance the Sechelt sewer project. *  Watson also recommended that  the village contribute $50 to  sewer hook-up fees for senior citizens. That would bring the hookup fee down to $100 for about 50  Sechelt residents over 65 years of  age. Council accepted the recommendation.  Council gave third reading to a  Revenue Anticipation bylaw 158  which will allow the village to borrow as much as $60,000 for expenses until tax revenues are received. The interest on the borrowed money will be 9VS percent.  Aid Frank Leitner reported that  the Lions Club was not interested  in taking on the landscaping of  Hackett Park. Aid Leitner said  the lions club had lost several  members and felt the project was  too big.  Last Thursday's meeting in the  Sechelt Senior Citizen's hall was  called by the Justice Development Commission especially to  discuss two criminal law amendment acts presently before federal Parliament in Ottawa. The first  act includes legislative amendments relating to gun control,  dangerous offenders, special  crime inquiries, electronic surveillance, and custody and release of inmates.  The second amendment, and  the one uppermost in the minds of  most Canadians today, proposes  to abolish capital punishment for  persons convicted of murder and  to replace it with sentences of  life imprisonment. This amendment also includes provisions for  sentence administration that will  vary depending on whether murder is first degree or second  degree.  At last Thursday's meeting,  chaired by Sechelt Alderman  Morgan Thompson, the prevalent mood was that "society has  gone down the tube" and the vote  at the end of die meeting was  strongly in favor of the retention  of capital punishment. Out of 39  people present, 32 voted in favor  of a recommendation to the federal government stating in effect  that capital punishment should be  retained and enforced. Four people voted against the recom->  mentation and the rest abstained  One idea that came out pf a discussion held prior to the vote-  ���. suggested that the death penalty  not only be applicable to police  officers and prison guards on duty  but to the general populace as a  whole..  "We need justice for all, not  just for one segment of society,"  was the comment made by one  person.  It was also felt that societh/ in  general was deteriorating and in  order to keep die streets safe at  . night, strict punishment must be  enforced as a deterrent to those  who kill fellow human beings.  One man also critized the fact  that the taxpayer must supply the  money "to keep the animal incarcerated" and there were several  more criticisms levelled at the  "do-gooders" of our society who  favor the abolition of the death  penalty.  One of the spokesman for the  few who voted for the abolition of  capital punishment, Tim Frizzell,  said he is against killing in all circumstances and that there were  no statistics that proved the death  Accident claims life  PearsalVs trip delayed  MP Jack Pearsall said last week his trip to the  Sunshine Coast will be delayed by about one  month. The MP had earlier announced he would  be touring the riding from March 11 to 19 making  stops in Sechelt and Gibsons.  In a telephone call from Ottawa last Friday,  Pearsall said that changes beyond his control have  forced him to reduce that trip considerably and  that he would not be able to stop in this area. He  added that he will be visiting the Sunshine Coast  sometime in April. Exact dates are not yet known.  Pearsall said in a recent newsletter that he has  altered his constituency visits and now spends one  week per month in the riding.  A two vehicle accident Saturday  night claimed the life of Roberts  Creek resident Earnest John  Drew, aged 71. The accident,  which occurred at 10:27 p.m. on  Lower Road, sent two other people to hospital with minor injuries. '  Gibsons RCMP said the Drew  vehicle was in collision with a vehicle driven by Derrick Daniel  Cameron of Delta.  Another accident occurred Saturday evening when a vehicle  driven by Thomas Forsyth failed  to negotiate a curve on Reed Road  in Granthams Landing. Police  said the vehicle left the road and  rolled 125 feet down an embankment. The driver and another  occupant of the vehicle suffered  minor injuries.  Searchers find boy  An 11 year old Coquitlam boy  was found alive and well last  Thursday . morning after being  lost in the woods for a night near  the YMCA camp at Langdale.  Gibsons RCMP said Michael  Hardy spent a cold and frightening 16 hours in the woods before  being found by searchers who  were part of a volunteer search  . party. The youth apparently spent  the night under a log in temperatures below 0 degrees centi  grade.  The boy was on a school sponsored outdoors program and  police said a lecture op survival  prevented him from panicking,  which probably saved his life. He  was taken to St. Mary's Hospital  and was released the following  day in satisfactory condition.  Gibsons RCMP have expressed  their appreciation to all persons  who volunteered and aided in the  search.  penalty  to be a deterrent to  murder.  Frizzell pointed out that imposing the death penalty "is only an  easy way out" and that it never  gets to the root of the problem  which, he said, usually starts here  at home. Frizzell said we must  look to our own community to see  what we are doing wrong to breed  people who go out' and later  commit a murder. 7  - Referring to prisoners, recently  involved in an attempted escape  at the Okalla Penetentiary in Bur-  naby, Frizzell said by imposing  the death penalty on such people  we don't find out what went  wrong in their background and  that by the mere fact of then-  hanging we think we've eliminated the problem.  Frizzell, who presently works  as a swamper on a garbage truck  although he has had several years  of experience working with deviant individuals, said that in the  past we have always shipped  troublemakers off the Peninsula  and in doing so we think we have  rid 'ourselves of die problem,  like capital punishment, Frizzell  said, that was ahvay the easy way  out.  Probation officer Neil McKen-  zie agreed with Frizzell.  "If we hang diem then we fool  ourselves in thinking that we've  solved the problem," McKenzie  told the group! "You are either  for killing or you are against killing and if you're against killing  you're against it all the way." " -  McKenzie added that "we are  so upset with people who commit  murder and then we turn around  and do it ourselves."  Besides the recommendation to  enforce capital punishment, the  meeting also resulted in several  other recommendations dealing  with the death penalty. It was  recommended that capital punishment be applied to: murder of  prison guards and personnel,  murder of a policeman, murder  during kidnapping, premeditated  murder, murder resulting from a  crime of violence, murder resulting from drug oriented activities, murder during a 1_ jacking,  and death resulting from drunken  driving.  A further vote gaming almost  unanimous support recommended that if the death pe&ahy is enforced, the appeal should be cut  off at the Supreme Court and not  become a political decision. It was  also suggested by the group that  both the federal and provincial  governments spend more funds  searching out potential criminals.  Several present at the meeting  also critized the federal government's proposal to damp down on  gun control. There was no official  recommendation made on this  matter.  birthday present  Gibsons Mayor Larry Labonte  was presented with a new white  oak gavel last week to mark What  he called his 39th birthday. The  gavel was purchased by the municipal staff and aldermen and  presented to the mayor at last  week's council meeting by Aid.  Stu. Metcalfe.  '   I   .  In other council news, Aid.  Kurt Hoehne reported that 23  sewer connections will be made  along .. Highway 101 between  North and Crucil Roads before the  end of March. Hoehne said the  work was being done now to avoid  competition with the paving  crews due to resume work on the  highway April 1.  More letters have been received by council voicing opinions  both for and against a proposed  cabaret above Kens Lucky Dollar  and a neighborhbbdpub proposed  for the Pazco Fiberglassing site  by MTR Holdings. All letters concerning both proposals are being  filed by the council. The response  so far is predominantly against. A  final decision has not yet been  made on either application.  Deficient  hydrants  Seaside village in Sechelt has  been asked to correct what Aid.  Ernie Booth termed "deficient*'  fire hydrants. Booth told Sechelt  council last week that several hydrants in the new sub-division are  deficient because they have been  partially) covered with soil.  Booth said if there was a fire in  the Seasid village, the fire department would have problems connecting hoses to the hydrants. He  'iaid' Seaside vinage^has ~V  asked to correct the akuation.

Hanging is murder  The issue of capital punishment is  serious enough that it cannot be dealt  with without a whole lot of trepidation  and careful consideration. Sooner or later  though, one must come to a conclusion  on the matter. This applies especially  to our members of parliament who will  shortly be voting on the Criminal Code  Amendment Act, to decide whether or  not this country will retain the death  penalty for first degree murder.  If the Justice Development Commission meeting in Sechelt last week was  any indication of prevalent thought, the  proposed amendments do not stand a  chance. Sunshine Coast residents voted  about 80 percent in favor of retention  and enforcement of the death penalty.  AO over the country, in fact, police  chiefs, law enforcement associations,  municipal politicians and private citizens  are demanding the return of the noose  or some other form of execution for murder. Whether it be for the murder of  policemen and prison guards, premeditated murder, murder by insane persons  or simple crimes of passion, there seems  to be a vocal and substantial section of  society that believes capital punishment  is the only suitable way of dealing with  murder.  The reams of statistics, the endless  studies by competent authorities and the  clear pronouncements by many leaders  that hanging is no deterrent for murderers and merely brutalizes society seems  to have little effect on people who are  engulfed in revulsion when they hear of  a particularly senseless or brutal crime  inflicted on some innocent child.  All society is afflicted with horror  at such crimes. The perpetrators must be  dealt with but to eradicate them is simply an act of social revenge. Our laws  could be toughened up sufficiently to  ensure that no convicted murderer would  be released until it is certain he will  not repeat the act.  But death, by whatever means and  let us be clear there is no ' 'humane" way  of execution, is morally indefensible. Forgiveness, compassion, rehabilitation are  part of the moral fibre of our society at  its best, and these instincts must not be  blunted in the first waves of emotion.  Those who suggest that capital punishment is a deterrent must be prepared  to return to public executions and put  them in prime family hour TV viewing.  That would no doubt be the fastest way  to ensure this barbaric method of punishment is forever eliminated.  The irrevocable act of hanging on  the part of society ��� all of- us ��� precludes any chance to study and remedy  the causes of these crimes. It strikes at  the very sanctity of human life that our  Judeao-Christian heritage so cherishes.  Hanging is the easy way out.  Surely we can find more humane, effective and just ways of seeing that  threats to our life and liberty are dealt  with, than by hanging people.  One wonders, thinking of those people in Sechelt who voted overwhelmingly  in favor of retaining the death penalty,  if any of those people could personally  pull the trap door on the scaffold or the  switch on the electric chair and feel as if  some sort of justice had been accomplished.  It's easy to put up your hand and  vote yes for the death penalty ��� it's easy  as long as that act of social vengeance  can be put out of sight and out of mind.  But it doesn't eliminate our responsibility. Nor our guilt.  We can only agree with what probation officer Neil MacKenzie said at last  week's justice meeting: You are either for  killing or against killing and if you're  against killing, you're against it all the  way.  The retention of the death penalty  means nothing less than legalized  murder.  On gun control  And while we're dealing with the  issues discussed at last week's justice  development commission meeting we  would also like to comment on statements  made by some of those present on gun  control.  One man said the proposed legislation on stricter gun control was an infringement on his rights and it further  contributed to the domination that our  Prime Minister is supposedly imposing  on his new society.  We wonder at the mentality of such a  man and we wonder at the mentality of  a society that sanctions capital punishment and at the same time sanctions the  unrestricted use of guns.  We have demonstrated in the past,  and we are increasingly demonstrating,  that we cannot handle such lethal weapons unless we are prepared to cope with  an increased incidence of people shooting  people.  It may be simplistic to state that  without gun ownership, shootings would  be drastically reduced but to the practical  mind the removal of the cause of a problem goes a long way towards its solution.  The powerful lobbies of the hunting  groups and the gun manufacturers seem  still to be in a position of keeping our poli  ticians from coming to grips with a trend  to ownership of arms that is reaching  epidemic proportions.  There is simply no need for people  to own firearms without strict registration and then only the type of weapons  that hunters feel they must have. Ownership of handguns, automatic or semiautomatic weapons should be banned  from Canada except perhaps for the  armed forces or the legitimate police  force.  Some people would still manage to  obtain such weapons on the black market  but the legitimate, source of supplies  would be dried up. Manufacture of required arms should be done under strict  supervision and the penalties for firearms infractions should be severe.  There is simply no justification for  the average Canadian to own any form of  weapon and most of us would not miss  this alleged infringement on our rights,  as some people claim.  The government that has the guts to  ban ownership of guns and control their  manufacture would, we suspect, have the  support of the majority of Canadians. If  not, we have some serious thinking to do  about ourselves and about our so-called  civilized and sophisticated society.  *n^*tpy;p9*m  *m****m*m'!i'nyyyi  ��� ���Hint  "���I   FIVE YEARS AGO  Rain   and   snowfall  totalling  40.06 inches, for 1970 was the  , lowest in nine years, the nine  ; year average being 52.12 inches.

News of this malicous plan to  overthrow the economy of the  coastal regions first leaked out  when Human Resources Minister  Vander Zaun, apparently while  peeking at Norm Levi's mail, discovered a bill from a Surrey-  greenhouse for $130,000 worth of  gardening. Thinking that his was  a trifle high for mowing the lawn  in front of the legislature, the  Honourable Minister decided to  investigate and in so doing soon  discovered that he was now the  proud custodian of 2.6 million,  one foot high yellow birch and-  . cottonwood trees that cost over7  $100,000 a month to feed and like-  all newly conceived problems  were about to outgrow their baby  baskets at a repotting cost of up to  one million dollars.  Vander Zaun's immediate reaction was to send these newly  immigrated European welfare  cases out to sweep the streets  of Surrey, but as one of his brighter aides pointed out, the sudden  influx of over two million leafy  foreigners onto the streets of Surrey would not only tend to make  Surrey look like Sherwood Forest  but would also mess up the Minister's front lawn, excite the local  dogs to madness and put the  "welfare workers" out of a job  (except of course raking leaves).  It was also this same daring  young civil servant who made two  other points, perhaps the NDP  had actually planned to use the  trees for some useful purpose  (heresy) and if it got bad enough,  he pointed out, Vander Zaun  could always give the trees to Pat  McGeer, since it had recently  : been stated, wh^m government  ' circles add without, mat McGeer  "couldn't see the forest for the  trees" anyway.  As the plot thickened it was  found that the trees were destined in some way for what else but  Habitat, then, just when the Cabinet (die problem was growing too  large for one mam) was saying  "Hah-hah now we know what  Habitat is" our bright young civil  servant once again entered the  room to throw darkness on the  subject.  "If every house in Greater Vancouver (including apartments and  hotel rooms) were to plant about  ten trees the problem would be  solved" he stated. The idea was  briefly considered until someone  mentioned that maybe this was  what the NDP wanted.  The civil servant was demoted  to checking ICBC licence plate  stickers and the trees grew in  pregnant silence while a "special  committee" looked into the rapidly expanding problem.  The answer of course was simple. Certain areas of Vancouver  "have long been an-NDP strong-'  hold and so has the logging indus-  try. The philosophy is basic: If the  people won't go to the forests  then let the forests come to the  people. Two and a half million  trees might give Barrett the camouflage he needs to win his upcoming by-election.  ' Make sense? No?  Well how about reforesting Victoria. It's always been a bit  dense.  Commission  appointed  The village of Sechelt now has a  six member recreation commission. Appointed to the commission by council last week are  Norm Watson, Frode Jorgenson,  Gordon Dixon, Les English, Doris  Crowston, and W. Wilson. The  appointments will be in effect for  one year.  The purpose of the commission  is to initiate and co-ordinate recreational activities in Sechelt. the  commission is expected to hold  its first meeting shortly.  Letters to the Editor  PUB AN ASSET  Editor: "You are either growing  or dying'', is something I find myself saying to the students with  whom I get together at Elphinstone Secondary.  "So what!", is often the reply  from the student who thinks I am'  talking about 'growing' in purely  a physical sense, and away we go,  off on a discussion about 'growing' in terms of learning, that is,  an expansion. It takes these  bright young people very little  time to understand dearly that if  one chooses to merely sit in  school without learning then one  is certainly 'dying'.  This'dying'can be applied to a  community as well. It is'grossly  naive to think that a community  doesn't or shouldn't 'expand'.  There are several examples of  'dying' communities in British  Columbia where all change was  resisted. They are bordering on  becoming ghost towns.  The important thing in a living,  growing town is having community input and community control  of growth. Intelligent, well planned growth reflects and services  the needs of the community. The  people who run die Dogwood  Cafe have demonstrated in a truly  responsible way that they are able  to fill a need in their community.  Their praises have been sung by  many on this peninsula. Now  these same people have responded to another community need,  the need for a small, locally  owned and locally controlled pub.  All of us grow weary of hearing  about the marvellous institution  of the English pub, but at the  same time we are all ready to admit that the congenial friendly  atmosphere of the British pub has  done more to promote and encourage close community ties  than any other organized or unorganized past-time on their island.  It is inevitable that the community of Gibsons will grow but  only through careful responsible  planning can we be sure of expanding in worthwhile directions.  It would seem to me that the  development of a local pub by the  friendly people of the Dogwood,  would be a far greater asset to our  town than, the sterile drinking  barns we see in Vancouver. My  family and I support their  application.  ���DonMacLean  FIRE PROTECTION  ' Editor: Recent reporting on the  Jolly Roger fire has raised a number of good points in the columns  .regarding fire protection.  Let me point out that it is only a  result of the progressive thinking  oh the part of the present fire-  chiefs Ranniger, Kraus, Ono, and  Wilbbe, and the past chiefs, such  as Scott and Rob__-d that we  have some of the best volunteer  "fire departments in B. C. right'  here on the Peninsula.  Their co-operation in establishing mutual aid agreements is part  of this thinking. Fire bylaws for  all areas are also in the embryo  stage and under discussion. It  ; doesn't happen overnight.  People, business, and governments are against two basic needs  for fixe protection: Control and  money expenses.  To enact more stringent controls governing local problems of  fire protection we must have bylaws for local problems and people to enforce them (which many  people are against) or we must  spend more money on equipment  to put out fires.  In rural and semi-rural areas  such as ours, we must take a different posture than those residents of a city where population  density offers ah easier answer to  i finances, laws, and operation.  *     On the Sunshine Coast we must  accept the rural atmosphere and  : the risks that go with it; we must  become builders of communities  ; and therefore accept certain risks  and pay as we go; and we must  cut our cloth according to our  needs for control and protection  by volunteering ourselves  and  asking for community co-operation.  / In most cases you can bet your  life these men have already discussed what would happen 'if I  had afire at my house.' All I can  say is, listen to them. Their advice is free, realistic, and expert  as well.  You can help the fire departments most by giving your support to their requests or advice in  all matters concerning fire protection. They need adequate water  mains that are up to recognized  standards, proper equipment,  training time and aids, and they  need people to abide by existing  law and public support for future  bylaws and budgets.  Unlike our more spohisticated  brothers in the .city", one of the  biggest problems here is~ communication. It is correct to state  that early warning devices such  as smoke detectors, heat detectors, and sprinkler systems are  not always required by law even  though the use of them amy be  though the use of them may be  recommended. Most people in  business opt out because of the  expenditure. Yes, we only get  what we pay for.  By the way, what is the fire department emergency . number  where you live or work? It would  sure save time if it was conspi-  ciously posted by your phone,  wouldn't it?  ���C. Mahlman  Local Assistant Fire Marshall  Gibsons Fire Protection Dist.  CLARIFICATION  Editor: May I use die hospitality  of your columns to clarify two  matters which have recently been  reported in the news.  Firstly, the Gibsons School  field trip, no educational funds  will be involved in that project at  all. At one point in the 'discussion  it was suggested that the school  could .use some of its travel budget proportionate to the number  of grade seven students in the  school but that point was later  withdrawn and the formal motion  provides that all funds will have  to be raised by the school. There  will be no involvement of school  board travel funds in the field trip  Secondly, I am advised that  some readers .have misinterpreted comments made two  weeks ago relative to the mill  rate, the Elphinstone improvement budget and the effect of  Federal salary guidelines on employees' salaries and budget.  Incredibly, some people seem  to have interpreted die report as  implying that the cost of budget  overrun, which includes corrective construction at Elphinstone  Secondary School, will come from  a roll back of teachers' salaries.  The facts of the situation bear no  resemblance to that invalid assumption, nor can I see how such  an impression could have been  gained. That, however, is not important. What is important is that  the misconception be cleared up.  The essence of what I said to  the reporter was that the budget  as adopted would result in a some  what higher, mill rate for education purposes that the district  paid last year. At the time of the  provisional budget I stated that if  the final budget were in the same  amount as the provisional budget  the mill rate would be significantly less than 1975, by about  three mills assuming the Department of Education did not change  its mind about the size of the  basic levy, since this is the most  significant part of the local mill  rate.  In explaining how a provisional  budget that would have led to a  significant reduction in the mill  rate became a final budget that  would require a higher mill rate  I stated that the two biggest factors were (1) the inclusion of  $100,000 for the improvements to  Elphinstone. Secondary School,  and (2) the fact that the provisional budget had been calculated using staff salaries determined by  federal guidelines whereas the final budget used staff salaries as  negotiated since the province had  not yet brought itself within the  federal guidelines.  I went on to say that if the province brought itself under the federal guidelines this would reduce  the salaries payable to school  board staff and this would permit  the board to reduce the final budget by the amount of the salary  rollback. If this happened I anticipated that the final mill rate  would be slightly less than last  year.  The fact that the total district  payroll reduction that would result from application of federal  guidelines retroactive to January"  of 1976 would be about $100,000,  the amount provided for improve-  _��� ��� that  birthday  problem  by CAROLYNNKCHLER  Here I go again, my husband's  birthday is coming up and I  haven't the faintest idea what to  get him. What do you get for the  man who has everything? I want  to get him something really clever  and novel, and that's where my  imagination comes to a. screeching halt.  If I ask him what he wants he'll  say, "anything", or "nothing",  so I'll still be in the same mess..  What a dilemma. Thank good-"  ness birthdays are only once a  year.  I suppose it wouldn't be quite  so bad if I liked shopping and  browsing. I have a friend who can  spend an entire day in stores, going from one department to  another, looking at every item on  every rack, . picking through-,  everything on display tables and  loving every minute of it. I went  shopping with' her once, only  once, and I was a raving maniac  after a couple of hours.  I like to go into a store knowing  what I want, get it, pay for it, and  leave; but then I am left with this  problem of what to get for dear  hubby. I'm sitting here racking  my brain, and I keep producing  blanks.  If they only had a phone number that you could call and ask for  advice, Dial-a-gift. Dial with a  smile, and get a gift that is terrif  would be their motto. When you  called you would give them the  particulars, age, hobbies, interests, likes, dislikes, etc., and  Dial-a-Gift would rack their  brains for you.  Enough dreaming, back to reality. What in the heck am I going  to get for that man? What would  he like? Perhaps I should give,  him something of myself, a  pledge. I'll get some parchment  and write, in my best penmanship, a promise to do something  special for him. Something that  would please him, something I  don't always do. Like for one  week I will make dessert every  night, or I won't nag, or complain  or a million other things that irritate him.  That's not a bad idea and it's  certainly more economical than  buying him something he really,  doesn't need anyway.  ments at Elphinstone, is purely  coincidental. The Elphinstone  project is one which the board as  a locally autonomous body have  decided to do out of local, capital,  funds. The matter of federal  guidelines is a provincial policy  matter over which die board has  no control. A salary rollback, if  legislated by the province, will result in a saving to die operating  account of the budget which under no circumstances can be  transferred to the capital section.  There is no basis for the erroneous conclusion apparently  . reached by some of your readers  which seems to relate the funding  of the Elphinstone improvements  to a rollback of staff salaries. The  one is not contingent in any way  upon the other either in the budget format or in the minds of the  hoard.  ���Board of School Trustees  R. Mills  Secretary-Treasurer  CRUSHING NOISE  Editor: It seems I will be turned  down on my application to operate a sawmill between Cemetery  and Reed Roads as it would be a  non-conforming operation in that -  area.  Noise seems to be a big factor  in the rejection and what is bothering me is the fact that a rock  crushing plant is being installed  next door which will make considerable noise.  Maybe a rock crushing mill has  a more pleasant sound than a log  sawmill in the minds of the  powers that be.  I just thought the sounds of a  sawmill and a rock crushing mill  might harmonize real well.  ..   ���Dan Cattanach  WANTED  'Used furniture on- ��r*_f  have yon  M'S (KID FURihlRt  WE BOY BEEH  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2_1_  7*q  m  k  hi  h rmmy^t m MtMt t-at.���.���.���,! .'*.��.*l^|.*.^fl*l��^'^l^.^^��;^,;'^*?_>y?'t,?,?^?.^l^. l.*Il!T??iy?g,!,y JCTf.'1^?* '^  ' fV' I I I t r ��� ���  Film Society  Sunshine Coast News, March 9,1976.  Fund-raising dance planned  by ALLAN CRANE  CLOSE���UP OF glittering rocks and waves on a Sunshine Coast beach.  ���Photo by Randy Boyes.  Singers needed  At present the Madrigal group  consists of eight singers, five of  whom have sung with the group  since its inception in January of  1975, one who joined the group a  few months later and two who  have joined more recently. The  group rehearses each Monday at  .7:30, and it performed most re-  ; cently in a concert of early music  - presented in Gibsons, Sechelt and  Madeira Park. The group will  take part again in the Kiwanis  Festival of Music and Drama this  spring, and will probably give a  concert later in the year.  There has been no funding for  the group other than the resources of its members, but a grant is  expected this year from the Sunshine Coast Arts Council, and it is  then hoped to arrange a weekend  workshop with Scott Andrews,  musicologist, singer and director  of the SFU Madrigal Singers with  whom the group had an evening  workshop in November.  Previous performances have  been centred around English  madrigals, but the group is currently rehearsing Italian madrigals. Many of these, and most of  Monteverdi's, are in five parts.  so the group is looking for two experienced singers to supplement  its number, .one bass and a soprano or. mezzo-soprano who  could alternate between second  soprano and alto parts as needed.  Anyone interested is asked to  contact Allan Crane, telephone  885-9210 (weekends and evenings) or 886-2820 during business hours.  C. B.C. RADIO SCHEDULE ON PAGE a  Few people came to last Sunday's meeting at Roberts Creek  ��� Community HaD, but it is much  better for them to come to the  films, and organizational details  are more easily dealt with by  small committees. Although the.  4 Film Society is now solvent, it  - was agreed that a fund-raising  dance should still be arranged to  *' ensure that it remains so. I am  awaiting confirmation from Rick  - Scott, but tentatively the. dance  will be held in the Gibsons Legion  on Saturday, April 3 with the Pied  Pumpkin supplying the music. I  expect to hear from Rick on  Monday by which time this will  have gone to press, so further  details will appear in next week's  paper.  There were the usual mixed re-  ��� actions to last Wednesday's film,  but I seldom expect the Film Society's presentations to have uni-  ; versal appeal or even to be widely  accepted. With the next issue of  program notes, I am hoping to arrange with Keith Wallace, who  is happily with us again after a  winter in Eastern Canada, to include a ballot which will be a  means whereby members of the  audience can rate the films and  make comments. This will give us  an indication of audience reaction  which we can subsequently publish and which should prove interesting to our audiences and helpful in planning future programs.  Later on in the season, a questionnaire will be sent to all members, and, as in the past, members will be asked to suggest  types of films, films by directors  whom they like or specific tides of  films which they would like to  see.  This Wednesday sees the  screening of our second Bunuel  film of the season, The Milky  Way, a much more recent film  than last week's. In fact this film  is the one Bunuel made immediately prior to THstana and The  Discreet Cham of the Bourgeoisie, the latter of which we  are screening next week. Here is  a review for this week's film  which Keith found in the Mosk -  Films  ��� iri'Ai  Burt ReynoW^^  Spread-eagled in a canvas-back  chair on the Paramount set of  "Hustle," his first major love  story film with Catherine De-  neuve, Burt Reynolds was talking  about the bumpy Hollywood highway that has led him ��� finally ���  to super-stardom.  It all started with a bum knee���  and a book. As a freshman at  Florida State, Reynolds started at  halfback in half a,dozen varsity  games. In his sophomore year he  suffered a knee injury, dropped  out of school and went to New  York where he found himself in  the company of actors a great deal  "I don't know why," he admits.  "I had no eyes to be an actor;  Somebody asked me if I'd ever  read 'Catcher in the Rye.' Hell, I  was 21 years old, and I had never  read any book at all. So I read  'Catcher in the Rye,' and I  thought, 'Hey, this is good.' That  book got me interested in reading, changed my life.  "For a TV show named  "Frontiers of Faith' there was a  bit that called for' a guy to be  thrown through a window. I did  it and got paid something like  $132. After that I did a lot of TV.

There were no stunt men because  TV was live. I'd say' my three  lines and get knocked down. As  the years went by, I began getting  knocked down less and talking  more."  Thinking perhaps of his days as  a stunt man, Reynolds grins,  "I'm always afraid somebody is  going to tap me on the shoulder  and say that from now on I'll get  paid what I'm worm, which is  about $3.50 an hour.

As for establishing his film  career, he feels that die catalysts  were "The Tonight Show" and  "Deliverance." Reynolds' bright,  easy conversation as "The Tonight Show" host was a revelation to those who thought of him,  if they thought of him at all, as an  actor who played cowboys or Indians and took his shirt off a lot.  And his performance in "Deliverance" as an intelligent man tormented.by his own sense of machismo came across powerfully  and boosted Reynolds' career onto a different level.  During the "Deliverance" period Reynolds appeared in the famous nude Cosmopolitan centerfold. It had been predicted by  some that the photo would make  Reynolds into a joke, but instead  it pointed up the comedy of the  whole nude foldoutbusiness. Women all over the country got  copies of it with which to razz  their husbands and feed their  fantasies.  "I did it to take a swing at  Playboy," Reynolds admits. "I  felt I had the sense of humor to  bring it off. After the magazine  came out, I was fully prepared to  get in an elevator with a bunch of  guys and either have to be funny  or fight my way out. But men  seem to recognize the humor in it  faster than the women. Of course,  there are always guys who love  to show off by calling you a  movie-star faggot, but most guys  just laugh and kid me about it.  "The day the magazine came  out, I was booked as host on To  night, ' a calculated move. For the  opening monologue, I told the  writers to think of me as Don  Rickles doing a routine on Burt  Reynolds and to use every terrible  rotten joke on me they could think  of. By the time I'd finished that,  monologue there was nothing left  for people to say. I'd said it all.  And I've still got one-liners for  any occasion. Like maybe I get on  a plane and a guy whisdes at me,  and I say "Thanks, the flowers  were beautiful,' I was in a restaurant one night and the violinist  looked down at me and said, 'You  wouldn't be anything if it hadn't  been for that magazine picture.'  So I told him he ought to pose for  one and then maybe he could be  playing at Carnegie Hall." .  Hustie plays at die Twilight  Theatre Thursday, Friday, and  Saturday, March 11,12, and 13.

Just as it is not necessary to be  Jewish to like Fiddler on the Roof,  one does not have to be a Catholic  to savour, enjoy and be intrigued  by luis Bunuel's latest picture  delving into the heresies that be- \  set Catholicism during its 2,000  years of history. Bunuel is a surrealist, anti-clerical and maybe  even an athiest, but he has never  made didactic films, but rather  treated all characters, priests included, as people doing their  work and with as much interest  and sympathy as anyone else.  What has emerged is showing up  misuses of human, religious or  any other type of precepts.  So here are two pilgrims set  out from Paris to go to the tomb  of Saint John De Campostello in  Spain. It finally emerges they  may have had various motives:  one, to a place for easy begging;  the other, a man prone to defy  God, if he exists, rather than to  believe blindly. And as they go  they enter into other times, meet  God and Biblical characters as the  theological aspects of heresy are  Books  It demands  to be finished  by ALEXIS DAVISON  Never Sleep Three in a Bed by  Max Bntthwatte, McCeftuad and  Stewart Ltd., el%9.218p.  Never Sleep Time In a Bed is  the funniest book I have read for  many years. It is light-hearted  and to the point. It is a book which  once begun, demands to be  finished.  In this collection of humorous  incidents in his early life, the  author describes his youth in  Saskatchewan from his first recollections of life in the small town of  Nokomis to his senior year in high  school in Saskatoon. His vivid  anecdotes of sleeping three in a  bed, youthful pranks on Hallowe'en, the trauma of starting school,  learning to play hockey in Saskatoon, and the emotional problems  of a first love, will appeal to readers of all ages.. r.  But the boyhood experiences  he recalls don't just apply to one  man in one place at one time.  They are reminiscent of everyone's past ���they certainly evoked memories of my youth in.the  50s and 60s. These incidents also  serve to illustrate Canada's past  ��� what life was all about during  the first quarter of this Century.  The author captures on paper the  essence of growing up, from the  vantage point of maturity and  perspective.  Max Brafthwaite is Canada's  most prolific freelance writer. He  is the author of books, magazine  articles, radio', television and  movie scripts.  Never Sleep Time In a Bed is  the first book of an autobiographical trilogy which also includes  Why Shoot the Teacher and The  Night They Stole the Mountle's  Car (which was awarded the  Stephen Leacock Medal for Humor). Once you have begun to.  read Max Brahhwaite you will not  be satisified until you have read  all three books.  These books are available at  Books and Stationery, Sechelt.

Call it parable, theological  study or whatever, it is still an  immense, unusual, witty, comic  and brilliant probing of religion in  general and CathoKc aspects in  particular. Transubstantiation,  Jansenism, the attitude toward  the body and soul, and other aspects of Catholic history, pass  smoothly in review during this  cascading pilgrimage into time,  ideas, beliefs and dogma.  Bunuel's surrealist touches are  as usual instinctive and yet acceptable. Careful handling should  get this unique film plenty of attention. Perhaps its heady insights, perceptions and many allusions may not be clear at all, but  it is clear enough and probably  a milestone in its brilliant mixture  of time, symbol and pkturization  of elements that are too often  taken for granted. Religion goes  beyond just an established one in  this sparkling pic and calls for reactions which are a part of the  film as a evolving art form as well  as business. It is well played and  finely hued. The title, The Milky  Way, refers to a pilgrimage to the  tomb of Saint John in Compostel-  lo, Spain as well as to the Milky  Way in the heavens.  I am informed by one of our members, Tony Archer, that the tomb  which is the object of the pilgrimage is that of St. James of Campostello, not St. John as the review  has it.  ST.

Sechelt  ��� ���   ���  vicinity  (continued from Page 1)  Areas of lower and higher residential densities are designated,  separated as much as possible by  greenbelts, to preserve the character of die suburban areas, and  to provide more homes within  walking distance of the commercial centre.  An area for light industry is  established, separated from other  development to avoid conflict. Important natural areas, recreation  areas, and views, are identified,  and steps are taken to preserve  these and improve access by the  public to them where desirable.  A Highway 101 by-pass around  Sechelt is built following a route  based on that of the power line.  Buildings over three floors high,  and apartment developments, are  disallowed.  As the population of the area  increases, the development this  population produces is directed  towards Sechelt,as a centre. Sechelt' becomes 'a compact small.  town, and continues to be the  service centre for,the area. By  setting limits to the spread of development, and by identifying  and preserving important natural  areas within and surrounding the  vicinity, the presence and impact  of the natural environment remain important features of the  area, accessible to all.  By deliberately separating  areas of different residential density, the character of the rural  areas, the suburbs, and the centre of the area are preserved as  much as possible. Keeping the  higher densities in one area of the  vicinity allows for better design /  of this development and less expensive provision of the necessary services and utilities. How-  . ever, limited building heights and  apartment development allows  the human scale and personal  character of Sechelt to be retained  School  below  estimate  School District secretary-treasurer Roy Mills announced last  week that tenders for the Sechelt  Junior Secondary closed last week  and the project is $24,000 below  the estimate.  Mills noted that immediate approval for the tenders can now  be obtained from the provincial  department of education which  will help to move the project:  along smoothly.  Supervisors for the project stat-'  ed at a recent school board meet-���  ing that the school construction  is on schedule.

NANAIMO���A load of specially-cut logs has left this Vancouver Island city bound for Florida  and a logging sports showdown  between British Columbia's fop  loggers and the best lumberjacks  in the United States.  The ��� logs, provided by. the  Greater Victoria Water Board,  were felled and prepared by  champion logger Jube Wickheim  of Shawnigan for use in the U.S.  Bicentennial National Lumberjack Championships at Fort Lau-  derdlae, Fla., April 15 -17.  They are being transported  5,500 miles by sea aboard the  36,000 ton Norwegian freighter  Sandvaag, along with a load of  MacMiilan Bloedel lumber destined for the U.S. east coast.  MB's shipping subsidiary, Canadian Transport Co., is providing  space aboard the Sandvaag,  a CTCo charter, at cost.  Wickheim, for 10 years the  world's champo��� log roller prior  WORLD CHAMPION log roller Jube Wickheim of Shawnigan, B.C., checks a load of special logs being shipped to  Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for use in the United States Bicentennial National Lumberjack Championships April  15-17. Logs left Nanaimo aboard the Norwegian freighter  Sandvaag, under charter to Canadian Transport Co.,  MacMiilan Bloedel's shipping subsidiary. Six British  Colmubia loggers will travel south later to compete in  the event.  *�����<'!  to his retirement from active  competition in 1969, will serve as  master of ceremonies for 10 different logging sports events at  the festival, including such activities as pole climbing, sawing,  chopping, axe throwing, log rolling and canoe jousting.  He said he expects six or  more of B.C.'s top loggers will  travel to Florida for the festival,  the first major event of the North  American logging sports season.  Although the Canadian contingent has yet to be set, it is  expected to include world champion steel cable splicer Alan  Boyko, a bridgeman in MB's  Taylor logging division on Vancouver Island.  More than 140 loggers and  lumberjacks from across the U.S.  will also compete for prizes totalling $11,000.  "It looks like it's going to be a  showdown between the lumberjacks of the east coast United  States and the loggers from British Columbia," said Wickheim.  "They call 'em lumberjacks and  we call 'em loggers. Since we're  supplying the wood this time,  It'll be interesting to see how  those eastern lumberjacks do with  western Douglas fir."  Wickheim personally supervised falling and preparation of  the timber that is now bound for  Florida, "and it was so cold that  the sap froze solid as it oozed out  of the logs."  The Sandvaag cargo includes a  pair of 65-foot-high Douglas fir  Credit union  readies for  opening  ��� Port Mellon Industries Credit  Union will soon be celebrating the  25th anniversary.

Most will head for the unfinished basement and a  major improvement project.  Since the space is uncluttered, the project can move  smoothly and quickly.  In most cases, planning is  a key factor.  For one, basement finishing  project the family planned  to. conceal heating equipment., laundry facilities and  storage areas. That still left,  a large L-shaped area for a  spacious recreation room.  An attractive stairway was  designed to hide the furnace  and water heater. It brings  guests down Into an informal.  relaxation area.  The main portion of the  room has space for the children to play on rainy days.  A ping-pong table also is  available.  The "foot" of the L-shaped  area was used as an adult  recreation area. A pool table  is the center of attraction  here.:  If a large party is planned,  the ping-pong table can be  folded up and additional  chairs brought in for guests.  Ah informal decor was established by combining light  and dark wormy chestnut  paneling. The lighter tone  was used in the main area of  the basement, the darker  tone in the adult area around  the pool table.  Construction went quickly'  because the 16"x8'.prefiri-  ished planks are attached  with adhesive and metal clips  to furring strips. And though  paneling has the look and  feel of wood, this plastic-  finished hardboard - can be  damp-wiped clean.  A suspended acoustical  ceiling minimizes noise.  Flooring with an imitation  brick design blends in with  the informal mood of the  basement.  Stained beams add character to the basement. Recessed  spotlights provide plenty of  illumination. Accessories in  each area complement the  low key theme.  AND LAND DEVELOPMENT LTD.

LORRIE GIRARD  886-7760  JON McRAE  885-3670  HAYDEN KILLAM was elected co-ordinator of the  Justice Development Commission at a meeting in  Sechelt last Thursday/ The  meeting dealt extensively  with the question of capital  punishment.  climbing poles, 10 Western red  cedar logs for log rolling, 18  alder logs for chopping events,  4 20-inch-diameter cedar rounds  for use as axe-throwing targets,  and four 10-foot-Iong Douglas fir  logs for use in sawing contests.  "The eastern lumberjacks are  used to working with Atlantic  white pine. The stuff we're sending down is quite a bit different in  terms of chopping and sawing  events in particular. This may  give the Canadian competitors  a bit of an edge."  The logs will arrive in Jacksonville, Fla., on or about March 1,  where they will be offloaded for  trucking to Fort Lauderdale. Most  events in the lumberjack championships will be held in that  city's International Swimming  Hall of Fame, which includes a  6,000-seat stadium and a large  pool.  The big Douglas fir climbing  poles will be set up on the Fort  Lauderdale beach, and organizers  expect thousands of people will  watch the climbing events.  This is the first time the national lumberjack championships  have been held in Florida.  Wickheim expects the Canadian competitors will do very well  in climbing, sawing and chopping  events.

WYNGAERT  When Vancouver newspapers  last week announced the death of  one Lucy Woodsworth, wife of the  late J. S. Woodsworth, founder of  the New Democratic Party, the  news was not received either by  surprise nor shock for she had  achieved the ripe old age of 102.  But to a few of us, indeed a very  few, we can be in reminiscence of  bygone days of this family of national distinction ��� and of a  brave and gallant lady.  Reverend J. S. Woodsworth  and family came' to Gibson's  Landing in 1917, the First World  War years. He had accepted a  post with the Methodist Church  and both he and Mrs. Woods-  worth taught school.  The family was not long in the  service of the church until realiz- .  ing that, in comparison with the  number of residents within this  district, only a meager number attended church, and they resided  near the waterfront. In taking inventory of why more people were  not availing themselves of Christian fellowship, the minister was  soon to realize a difference in  racial class between many of  those on the Hill settlement, and  those near the waterfront. Travel  by foot, and sometimes by use of  "Paddy", the saddle horse used  by Dr. Frederick Inglis, to make  calls to hinterland homes, J. S.  Woodsworth came face to face  with an entire Finnish settlement.  While most spoke limited English  some could not so much as read  English print.  Some of these folk, although  Finnish, were raised in Russia.  They opened their hearts to the  minister, and spoke freely of the  deprivations in that country, before emigrating to North America  Memories of the greed that had  transpired within the confines of  the Russian church had by now  prompted most of these local folk  to become Marxian Socialists.  They held a soft spot in the heart  of J. S. Woodsworth and he was  determined to do something for  them.  TAUGHT THE FINNISH  Firstly, J- S. Woodsworth and  his wife held classes in the manse  where basks in writing and read-  ii ���.. 7,     ,, ..,, ������������-:*  ing were taught to the Finnish  housewives. Secondly, in an effort to include the husbands, as  well as anyone else in the district,  public meetings were arranged  for each Friday evening during  those first winter months. The  Anglican Church building, then  not in use for Christian service,  accommodated for the first three  meetings, after which time meetings were held in the school house  across the road.  A graduate of Oxford University, J. S. Woodsworth was a man  well, versed in many topics. Both  he and Mrs. Woodsworth had  travelled quite extensively, including much of Europe, Palestine, eastern Asia, including  Japan. He spoke with pronounced  clarity, and hallowed in sound. Interest spread among the residents  and the school house was always  packed.  OUT OF FAVOR  But this venture on the part of  the minister did not find favor  with two or three of the extremely  few within his church. For J. S.  Woodsworth opposed war, and  was not hesitant to make use of  the pulpit to express his feelings.  This resulted in the Sunday  school superintendent and the  preacher becoming engaged in  verbal combat, and the former  sought the support of his colleagues.  This interference greatly disturbed J. S. Woodsworth. For  with him there was brooding  within his soul, a feeling that,  perhaps he could not adequately  define. While in compliance with  his up bringing and schooling, he  desired so earnestly to serve his  church and God. Yet on the other  hand, the predominancy of a new  outlook, a new theory, if one may  use that expression, could not be  denied.  As already intimated, J. S.  Woodsworth loved people; and h  seemed evident that the poor and  the working class were of his  prime concern. Opposition from  within the church became so intensified that, having somehow  acquired a philosphy of such dual  intellect, there apparently remained no choice other than a resignation. He loved his God; but  LUCY WOODSWORTH  STAYED WITH INGI1S  Having been extended unlimited hospitality by Doctor and Mrs.  Inglis, the Woodsworth family,  comprising six children, were  given the basement section of the  large Inglis home as their new  dwelling place. These were trying  times; employment was hard to  find. His resignation from the  church became effective June 18,  1918 and thus he too became one  of the long list of unemployed.  While this sudden change in  the routine of this family posed a  need for unusual adjustment,  there was now a sense of added  shock as the husband and father  of six growing younsters made  preparation for temporary withdrawal so that he might seek employment. Nevertheless, he  possessed a sincere confidence in  the capability of Mrs. Woods-  worth being well qualified in  exercising the social and spiritual  needs essential for proper upbringing of her family.  While J. S. Woodsworth had  rather anticipated finding employment as a teacher, or in an  *��  s��  ^WESTERN DRUG MART  THE BEST FOR LESS AT  GIBSONS  WESTERN DRUG MART  Pampers   $1.63  Toddlers, 12s  Contac C    '1.23  Band Aids    4.49  J &J Variety Pack  100s  10s  Dimetapp Extentabs  1.09  $  Maalox Suspension  $1.87  12oz.

A vacancy at  Howe Sound School prompted'  Mrs. Woodsworth to file application. Stiff opposition from four or  five persons, including the Sunday school superintendent, almost resulted in rejection. But at  a special school board meeting,  with the school inspector sitting  in, the outstanding qualities of  J. S. Woodsworth and his wife  were not so soon forgotten.  TAUGHT AT HOWE SOUND  Mrs. Woodsworth commenced  her teaching duties with opening  day, September 1918. As author  of this article, may it be said, it  was my pleasure to be one of Mrs.  Woodsworth's pupils during her  teaching period of two years. Her  teaching technique could not be  challenged and her French was  excellent. '   ���   \  . From a salary of less than $50  monthly, Mrs. Woodsworth provided food and other minor  necessities, as well as employing  someone for housekeeping and  laundry. One can imagine how  every penny was spent.  On the dock in Vancouver, J. S.  Woodsworth, a man small of stature, and unskilled in such arduous labor, discovered himself confronted with reality. It was no  longer a matter of theory. He was  now amidst the working man.  One must not conclude that because this man had resigned from  the pulpit that he in turn was re  futing the teachings of the Holy  Bible. Perhaps he now had opportunity to present truth in a realistic manner, and perhaps intro  duce a thought that might blend  Christian truths with Socialistic  theory.        HELD THE FORT  And, all the while Mrs. Woods-  worth held the fort back at Gibson's Landing, in such a gallant  manner, the one-time preacher  suffered aches and pains to the  muscles of his body. Yet these afflictions were as nothing compared with the damaging effects  to his soul, as he remained constantly subjected to the uncouth  ways and vulgar expressions of  his fellow workers. But this was  not the time and place to reveal  himself as the recent minister of  the Methodist Church of Gibson's  Landing.  How long he would be subjected to these conditions along  the waterfront, he did not know.  However, he became suddenly  aware that here was the proving  ground for what, until now, had  been mere theory. He was acquiring first hand information. It was  to be an incentive for greater, zeal  in the quest for more equality for  the Labor Party movement. He  suddenly found himself active  within the Labor Party and followed by becoming involved in  forming the Federated Labor  Party of British Columbia. It was  this intense activity and outstanding leadership that prompted an  invitation to have J. S. Woods-  worth speak in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Here was a man seemingly destined to become a leader within  the Labor movement. He became  involved in the "Winnipeg  Strike'' of that day which resulted  in intense harassment to himself  and fellow colleagues, followed  by police apprehension and jail.  BACK AT GIBSON-LANDING  Back at Gibson's Landing, Mrs.  Woodsworth and elder of her  children, Grace, Beh/a and Charles, had feared the worst. Bravely, though, these youngsters went  about their dairy school routine,  disclosing nothing unusual in  their composure.  While Mrs. Woodsworth harbored an untold burden within  her heart, we, as pupils, discerned no outward emotion. Boldly, and courageously she held the  fort until ultimately there broke  forth the dawn of a new day and  a brighter horizon as she and her  family of six were again united  with the man who became both  founder and leader of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation. Of him it was said, no greater orator spoke in Canadian Parliament and he was esteemed as  one of the most outstanding  among Canadian statesmen.  To a few of us, perhaps relatively few, Lucy Woodsworth will  be remembered for her true and  sincere dedication, for her out-,  standing qualities, and her loyalty  to a man so revered by the Canadian people.  walk wise  WITH YOUR EYES  Sunshine Cbast News, March 9.1978.

CSC Radio  Geor  The first in a series of programs  dealing with playwrights in the  contemporary Canadian theatre  produced by drama critic Peter  Hay, chronicles the harsh and un-  poetic circumstances which have  moulded George Ryga into one of  the leading dramatic poets in  the literature of English Canda.  This 90 minute profile, "A Long  Day's Journey into light" will  be broadcast Tuesday, March 16  at 8:03 p.m.  Ryga's career has spanned  poetry, song, novels, TV and radio, documentaries, screenplays  and the stage, all accompanied by  fierce controversy among the critics, the public, the press and  even in the House of Commons.  He is still banned from the Vancouver Playhouse, which he  helped to fame in the '60s, following the commissioning and  rejection of Captives of the Faceless Drummer.  First-person accounts of his  childhood on a farm in northern  Alberta, the marginal existence  of his Ukranian parents and the  people around him, his meagre  formal education, the shaping of  his sensibilities in literature and  his political views, are followed  by excerpts from his major plays  and commentary from actors and  producers.

(Proverbs 25:11) One such  is the word of appreciation. Think  back to the times you have received it, perhaps as a total surprise.  We have so many opportunities'  to encourage and help others by  just a kindly word:  "George, you really look sharp  inthat outfit!"  "This is the best meal ever,  Mary!"  Or a phone call to thank your  son's teacher, or again, a note of  thanks to the store manager who  extended himself to serve us well.  We all need this word, and we  all can give it. When we do, the  world's a warmer place to live  and work in.  And* you know it works two  ways: Always it helps the one receiving it. And it leaves a good  feeling in the heart of the giver.

Peter Fritz has rejoined us after  a prolonged sojourn to Indonesia.  Unfortunately (or is that fortunately?) his correspondence material never reached him so he was  unable to do any school work.  The story is that while swimming one hot day Pete stepped on  a sting-ray and was consequently  stung. The spiny tail struck him in  the leg and he had to be sent to  the hospital to get some shots. He  says he now feels fine. Welcome  back Peter.  Our words of wisdom this week  are: "Everything that coruscates  with effulgence is not aureus."

Martha Warnock is  no exception to this rule.  Mrs. Warnock still lives in the  small house overlooking Bargain  Harbour that her husband Martin  towed into the site shortly after  they purchased the property in  September 1919. The walls of her  living room are covered with the  pictures and souvenirs of her long  life, there are photographs of early Pender Harbour, the fishing  boats and tugs owned by her relatives and the everyday snapshots  of friends and family. Given the  least encouragement Martha  Warnock win be only top happy to  haul out her countless photo albums and scrapbooksto show you  even more memories. To Mrs.  Warnock the development of Pender Harbour is not history, it is  just a matter of remembering the  people you knew and the places  you used to go.  Martha Warnock, orininally  Martha Rouse, was born on La-  squeti Island in 1894 and was  raised in Ladysmtth until she was  fourteen years old. Her father,  Bill Rouse, was a German smelter -  worker and her mother, Mary  Ann was a half breed Sechelt Indian who worked as a professional  midwife. In 1909 Bill Rouse was  1 advised by his doctor to leave his  work at the local smelter and  shortly thereafter he purchased a  small steam tug the "May",  loaded up the family possessions  and headed focJervis Inlet in July  of that year. A few days later the  family landed at what is now  Earl's Cove and became the only  residents of the area. When they  first arrived they found "a part of  a log house there and you  couldn't see it for ferns and brambles and bush and everything, but  that was our new home". One of  Martha's family duties soon became teaching her six brothers  and sisters the basics of reading  and writin g since she was the only  member of the family who made it  to the /'Fourth Reader" at the  Lsdysmkh school.  When suppbes. were needed it  was necessary to make the dangerous journey down Agamemnon Channel to hvines Landing at  Pender Harbour. Martha can still  remember the times when the tug  was gone and they used to have to  make the long trip "by a rowboat  or canoe, anything we happened  to have at the time, sometimes  leaking and bailing aD the way in  all kinds of weather, rowing  against the tide". As for going to  town on a visit or for shopping  "you just didn't go anywhere, nobody did. You just landed on the  beach and then you stayed there''  At this time Irvines Landing was  the sole source of supplies, the  next closest town was at the new  pulp mill at Powen River. Later a  second store was opened at Don-  hely Landing on Francis Peninsula.  In this early period of settlement the Sechelt Peninsula was  still virtually unpopulated, the  only other settlers known to the  Rouse family were the Silveys at  Egmont, the Klein' family who  were logging at Gunboat Bay, the  Dames who owned Irvines Landing, -the Gonsalves who had a  ranch on the present day site of  Madeira Park and the Wrays  who had been the first settlers  in the area at Sinclair Bay. Two  of Martha's daughters were later  to marry into the -Duncan���Gonsalves family and others of Martha's five boys and four girls were  to remain in -the area for many  years.  In January 1912 Martha Rouse  became Mrs. Warnock when she  marriedi Martin Warnock a fisherman and logger she had known in  Ladysmith. Martin Warnock had  worked on the C.PJL ships Princess Victoria and Princess Adelaide and when Martha moved to  Earl's Cove in 1909, Martin  wasn't far behind. In 1912 Martin  and Bui Rouse bought the 60ft.  tug "Nagasaki", a teaked hulled,  Japanese built steamer and operated it as a beachcomber until it  was wrecked off Jedidiah Island  in a sudden storm during 1915.  Shortly thereafter they purchased  the "LueUa May" a 42ft. cruiser.  The young couple lived first at  Flat Island, then at Lang Bay and  Egmont before finally settling at  the property Mrs. Warnock still  lives on along the waterfront on  the Francis Peninsula side of Bargain Harbour. The main road  along that side of the bay is still  known as Warnock Road. The  original land was purchased for  $100 an acre but by the time  they had "run out of firewood"  and needed to buy the adjoining  five acres of waterfront in 1932  the price had fallen to $60 or $12  an acre. The "LueOa May" towed  the present house into the bay in  September, 1919 and the War-  nodes became Bargain Harbour's  first residents.  During the 1920s and 30s, Martha saw the Pender Harbour area  slowly begin to grow, when  Brindbon's Store was opened  Garden Bay began to become the  centre and when the hospital was  added shortly after a big ceremony and public holiday was held  to commemorate die event Before this it had been necessary for  the Warwick's boat the "Luell*  May", the fastest boat in the  area, to make several emergency  trips to Vancouver.  Pender Harbour was now the  centre of a small coastal area, but  basically it was stiD a sleepy  coastal community with the big  events of the year being the May  24 celebrations, the August  sports day and the arrival of the  at first weekly, then later twice  weekly Union Steamship Co.  coastal steamer with the merchandise ordered from Vancouver  Holiday visits to the Indian Islands in the mouth of the Harbour, where a large Indian population converged each summer,  were also favorite outings for the  CROSSWORD  PUZZLE  TODAY'S   ANSWER  ACROSS  1 One kind of  statesman  6 Big name  in the  phone book  11 Main  artery  12 "I Pagliac-  ci" tragic  hero  13 Somnambulist  15 Chinese  pagoda  16 Carney  17 "September  20 Footless  animal  24 Tycoon  27 "All the  , Things  You -"  28 Citizen-to-be  29 Stocking  thread  31 Pulpit talk  (abbr.)  32 Lintel;  crosspiece  34 Maintained  36 British  princess  37 Cereal  plant-   v  39 Actress,  Ruby ���  42 Lullaby  (2 wds.)  47 Art stand  48 Terre ���,  - Indiana  49 Plantlike  50 Aquatic  animal  DOWN  1 Dude  territory  2 Songstress  Falana  3 Elmer Rice  play (2 wds.)  4 Surnmer(Fr.)  5 Criminal  charge (si.)  6 Wound's  memento  7.

Warnock family.  The first rough road from Sechelt to Irvines Landing came  through in about 1929 but it  wasn't until, the Blackball ferries  initiated their Horseshoe Bay ���  Gibsons run.in the early 30s and  the relief workers improved the  road a few years later that the  ��� area really began to open up. By  the end of the Second World War,  Pender Harbour was well on it's  way to becoming a tourist centre.  One of the most tragic events of  this period was the wartime removal of several Japanese families that had settled in the area  and had-become popular members of the community.  When "Grandpa Gonsalves"  finally sold his 160 acre Madeira  Park ranch, named after his native Madeira Island, a store was  opened by Col. Johnson and  Madeira Park slowly grew into  the major commercial centre of  the Pender rlarbour area.'  Martha Warnock has known  the Pender Harbour area for over  67 years, during that time it has  developed from a back woods  fishing and logging settlement to  a fairly modern recreation oriented area. You get the feeling  ' that Martha isn't entirely pleased  with what tiie area has become, it  would be hard for anyone to accept the changes that have been  thrust on this area in the last 60  years. The May Day celebrations  are gone, Indian Island is deserted, the summer months are celebrated by a massrve influx of tour-  Auxiliary  plans for  luncheon  byJOANHGBY  Twenty-five ladies'braved the  , crusty ice to walk or drive to the  hionthly meeting of the Gibsons  Hospital Auxiliary at.the Health  Unit, Fletcher Rd. ft was a busy  meeting, with discussions on the  area conference ��� the BCHA  convention and our own annual  Dogwood Luncheon, and the dis-.  tribution of raffle tickets to.be  sold on a beautiful afghan knit for  us by Mrs. I.

Because of the rising costs of providing services, B.C. Hydro has  been facing a current deficit of about $35 million. If action were  not taken, the loss next year could be $80 million.  One thing we're doing is tightening our own belts by deferring  almost a quarter of our planned construction spending for 1976 and  planning significant operating cost reductions. Fortunately, the provincial government has taken up the great bulk of Hydro's current  transit deficit.  Despite these strong measures to improve Hydro's financial position, more needs to be done. Our customers are being asked to bear  part of the burden through rate increases. These increases deal only  with electricity and gas problems, and are needed to avoid losses on  these services during the coming year. ���  It is unfortunate that rates must be raised, but the serious state  of Hydro's financial situation offers no alternative.  The increases will apply to all classes of our, electric and gas  customers. For most they will take effect with the first full billing  period beginning on or after March 1, 1976. For customers on bimonthly billing, the increases will not appear on bills until May or  later. .  .  The following information will tell you what to expect.

For more than 85% of  residential customers, the increase will be less than $3.00 a month.  In.fact, if your monthly consumption is about average (678 kilowatt-  hours), the increase will be under $1.95 per month.  The minimum charge will be increased by 76e" for a two-month  billing period.  Account service charges, affecting customers who move into  premises already served by Hydro, will be increased to $5.00 on  April 1, 1976 from the present $3.00. New connection and re-connection charges will be increased to $10.00 on April, 1, 1976 from  the present $5.00. These charges also apply to other classes of  customers.  Other electric rates.  All rates, including those in diesel areas, are being increased.  Increases for commercial and smalj industrial users, in the majority of cases will range between 12% and 16%.  Those customers in the large industrial category who receive  power at transmission voltages and have one-year-notice contracts  will experience a rate increase averaging 10% on April 1, 1977,  followed by a further average increase of 8% a year later. Bulk customers with two-year-notice contracts will experience an average  increase of 19%, effective April 1, 1978. Customers in both categories have faced increases of 50% to 70% over the last two years.  In recent years, increases in the cost of electricity compare favourably with increases in the cost of most other goods and services.  Even with the new rates, electricity remains among the best bargains around today. In fact, the cost of cooking Sunday dinner  with electricity will still be only about ten cents.  We're not alone.  B.C. Hydro faces conditions similar to. those which are forcing  electric and gas rates upward throughout Canada. Virtually all major  utilities increased their rates substantially in 1975, and further increases "have already been introduced or are planned this year in  Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.  B.C. Hydro plans to continue to provide a good standard of  service to all our customers and meet the growing energy needs of  British Columbia.  B.C.

DESTROYS FEAR  Drivers who have "had a  drink" tend to abandon their  usual road safety practices, says .  the B.C. Automobile Association.  Worse, they are usually not aware  they are doing so. Alcohol destroys the necessary fear of the"  consequences of dangerous traffic  behaviour.  Foods Feature'  The value  Do you remember the fable of  the raven who had a fondness for  cheese? But the raven was a vain  bird and dropped his cheese in  order to show off his splendid  voice. Unlike the raven, let's be  wise as to the value of cheddar  cheese. It's a nutritious, economical and versatile food that should  be in ��� - ample supply during  1976.  Cheddar cheese features both  flavor and food value. Since a gallon of milk is required to make a  pound of cheese, it follows that  cheese contains the principal nutrients of milk. Cheese is an  excellent source of protein and  calcium, and a good source of  Vitamin A.  There is a flavor of cheddar  cheese to suit every taste. You  can buy mild, medium, old or  sharp cheddar cheese (the difference is determined by the time  of aging). The longer storage time  'of medium and old cheddar accounts for the higher price of  these cheeses. Cheddar is the  only cheese graded, and practically all of it is "Canada First  Grade" quality.  It is a rare meal that cannot  include cheese, either as an ingredient or alone. Furthermore,  cheese can be cooked so fast that  cheese omelette, grilled cheese  sandwich or cheese sauce take  hardly any time at all.  At this time of year, during a  seemingly endless winter, we become bored with the limited selection of root vegetables and  other "winter" foods. Cheese can  perk up our menus. Cooked and  diced carrots, parsnips, rutabaga  and chopped cabbage are particularly well complemented by a  cheese sauce.  A salad may be transformed  into a main dish by adding  cheese. Try mixed vegetables and  grated cheese; tomato and cheese  aspic; green salad of lettuce, cabbage or spinach with  cheese.  Cheese can be used to replace  all or part of the meat in a meal  because it has comparable protein value. It can also be used  with vegetables or cereal to extend the protein in a recipe and  thus render it more nutritious.  Cheese is also used to top many a  sandwich, which makes up the  major part of a -meal.

The settlement of  the Pacific coast is generally  looked.upon as a peaceful expan-  sionof established territories, but  in reality four nations struggled  for possession of this area for almost ISO years.  Britain, Spain, Russia and the  U.S. were almost drawn into war  over disputes arising from the  trade and cokmzotion of the  North Pacific on many occasions, ���  but at no time was this more evident than during the "Nootka  Incident" of 1789.  The situation arose when  Spain, considering me entire west  coast to be her territory, became  concerned over the incursion of  foreign traders into the virtually  still unexplored northern waters.  Captain Cook's third voyage had  shown this area to be an excellent  source of valuable furs and by the  early 1780s British and American  ships were actively trading along  the coast. Spain realizing it had  no chance of retaining this territory unless it maintained a per-  menant settlement there, in1789  finally dispatched Don Estaban  Jose Martinez to establish a base  at "Nootka Sound", the main  port for the early fur trading  operations.  Upon his arrival at Nootka,  Martinez detained two American  ships, the Washington and the  Columbia and a British trader the  Iphigenia, owned by English adventurer John Meares. Martinez  was finally persuaded to release .  the ships but when a second  Meares ship, the North West  America, returned to Nootka '  loaded with furs Martinez finally  seized the ship and later confiscated two other Meares' ships  and some land Mooes had ' 'purchased" from the Indians.  Spain7had forced^Britain from  the north west coast by these actions, but ironically, later that  year Martinez received orders to  dismantle the fort and return to ,  Mexico. The site wps not reforti-  fied until 1790.  7    v  /  �����,*"���  i  f  With a Westwood,  you really are master  of the house.  .

Box 167 Gibsons, B.C.  886?2B42  When the British Government  learned of these seizures Prime  Minister Pitt immediately demanded compensation for the incident. Spain refused to negotiate  and both countries were brought  to the brink of war before Spain  finally backed down. The "Nootka Sound Convention of 1790"  forced Spain to drop her claims to  the entire Eastern Pacific rim and  for the first time Britain was in a  strong position in the North  Pacific.  It still remained important for  ���an officer to be sent to Nootka to  receive formal restoration of the  land and to explore and survey  Britain's new foothold on the Pacific. It was also hoped that the .  ' new expedition would permenant-j  ��� ly settle the recently revived  North West Passage theory.  In 1791 the Royal Navy assigned the ships, Discovery and Chatham to this task and the man who  was selected to lead the expedition was George Vancouver, a  young captain being given his  first command.  George Vancouver was born in  1757 in the English port of King's  Lynn, Norfolk, his father1;was a  customs collector andju such the  Vancouver famib'were pari of the  : upper middle class thjujjprovided  so many of the Royal Navy's, officers, ft was only natural that  Vancouver should join-{he navy,  and shortly after his 14 birthday  he began his training as ah. "able  seaman''. The first ship he was to  sign on to was the "Resolution",  the command ship of. Captain  Cook on both his second and third  voyages.  Little is mentioned of Vancouver on the second Cook voyage,  one of the few times he is mentioned in Cook's journals was.  When the expedition was forced  to turn back on its attempt to  reach the South Pole and the  young George Vancouver climbed  .out on to the bowsprit just before  the ship turned to yell "Ne plus  ultra", in later life George Vancouver was proud of the fact that  he had been further south than  any other man.  When the third voyage left  England in 1776, George Vancouver, now a midshipman was again  part of the Cook expedition. It  was on this journey that Vancouver first saw the west coast of  North America and became one of  the first Europeans to explore the  area as Cook wound his way up  the coast from Oregon to Alaska.  When Cook was kffled in Hawaii  in February 1779, Vancouver was  one of the men oh the beach who  tried to save him from the hostile  natives. The extensive knowledge  that Vancouver gathered on this  expedition was one of the major  points considered in giving him  command of <his own expedition  13 yearslater ;'.<*��/, 7 ���  When the Cook' expedition returned to England in 1780 they  found that the, American Revolution had developed into a major  war between Britain, Spain and  France. Vancouver was Promoted  to lieutenant and for the next few  years saw active service in the  Carribean. While stationed in  Jamaica,1 Vancouver was given  the .task of surveying Kingston  Harbour, this' experience along  with the training he had received  while with Cook made him. admirably suited for his task as, Surveyor of the Pacific, which he assumed shortly after his return to  England in 1789. Originally it was  intended that Vancouver should  join the expedition as first Lieutenant but die voyage was cancelled, during the' mobilization and  when it was again reinstated Vancouver was given the command.    .  The Discovery and the Chatham left Folmouth in April 1791,  they rounded Cape of Good Hope  later that year and by March of  1792 they were in the Sandwich  Islands (Hawaii), after taking'on  WHY PAY ICBC?

The great survey that was to occupy the next three years was begun from this point. By April the  ships had reached the Strait of  Juan De Fuca and passed through  into Puget Sound. In the next few  months Vancouver was to_name_  most ��f the major landmarks  around the present day cities of  Vancouver and Seattle.  While returning from an advance survey party to Birch Bay  in the Discovery's launch, Vancouver noticed two sails off of the  newly named Point Grey. The  ships turned out to be the Spanish  explorers ValdesandGaliano who  ences in their instructions prevented them from completing the  transfer. Vancouver's respect for  Quadra was shown when he named the newly discovered island,  Quadra and Vancouver Island. In  October Vancouver sailed to California to discuss the problem with  the Spanish authorities, then  returned to Hawaii to take on  supplies before once again starting his survey off Northern Vancouver Island and charting the  coast to Port Protection (near  Sitka) that summer. That fall Vancouver again called into Nootka  and California in an attempt to  sort out the problem of restoring  the land at Nootka but the Spanish had become even less co-operative than they had been the preceding year.   "  In. April 1794 Vancouver's ships  once again headed for America  after wintering in Hawaii, this  Mendocino, California to Kodiak  Island in Alaska. They had still  found time to survey parts of  southern California and the  Hawaiian Ti^y"^g and in the process they had laid to rest the age  old North West Passage theory.  Many of the coasts major landmarks such as Burrard Inlet,  Puget Sound, Mount Baker and  the Gulf of Georgia had been  named by the men on this voyage.  The immensity of the job is  easily realized by looking at a  map of the B. C. coast and yet  Vancouver's charts were accurate  enough to be incorporated into  modern charts many years later.  On the homeward journey Vancouver again visited Nootka and  California but was finally forced  to leave the Pacific unaware that  a treaty signed that year called  for the mutual abandonment of  CAPTAIN VANCOUVER meets Spaniards off Point Grey and welcomes rjaiiano  and Valdes aboard the Discovery.      ���Photocourtesy Vancouver City Archives.  were conducting similar work for  the Spanish authorities. The two  parties joined forces for awhile  but Vancouver was anxious to  complete the season's surveying  so the ships finally seperated as:  they continued further north.  In the late summer of 1792  Lieutenant Johnstone returned  from ail advance party to report  the discovery of a channel to the  open ocean through the islands to  the expeditions north. It was finally realized that the land body  to their Vest was an island and after a dangerous voyage through  the inland passage the ships completed the'first season's survey  and headed for Nootka Sound to  take possession of the restored  property.  The new-commander of the  Spanish fort, Juan Francisco de  Bodega y Quadra and Vancouver  - became firm friends but differ-.  time they made their first landfall  at Kodiak Island in Alaska and  during that summer they completed the survey to Port Protection where they had finished the  last season's voyage.  In three seasons Vancouver and  his crew had charted virtually the  entire Pacific Coast from Cape  Nootka Sound.  The voyage tetumed to England by way of Cape Horn and  ��� only a few months after returning  to England, Captain George Vancouver died of an illness that developed during his epic survey of  the Pacific Coast of North  America.

On a  monthly  basis,  the  average  family uses about twice:the  amount of electricity to j operate the dishwasher as it uses  for washing clothes according  to a provincial Hydro;estimate.  If dry dishes aren't needed  immediately after the end  of. the cycle, it's a good  idea to turn the dishwasher  off when.the wash portion  is completed and to open  the door slightly.

One of the great advantages is  that the school offers pre-public  school experience at a far lower  cost than the various private pre-  schools. It is a school where parents are able to share pre-school  experiences with their children.  Parents involved in the school  are required to attend monthly  general meetings and assist in  duty days. In doing so, parents  are able to observe their child as a  group member, watch any progress and find new ways to handle children by observing the  teacher and other parents. The  predominant philosophy at Jack  and Jill is that the parent and  child should have fun together.  A sense of humor is an essential  requirement for both the parent  and the teacher.  The school is supervised by  Lorna Duteau who has three  school age children of her own  and who has credits from Saturday morning workshops taken at  UBC. She has taken a course  "psychology of Early Childhood"  which contributes to her certificate as pre-school supervisor.  Administration of the school is  handled by the following parents: -  President, Gail Smith; vice-president, Joan Covey; treasurer Willie Olson; publicity, Margaret  Buchanan; parent education, Ber-  nice Tyson; enrollment, Gladys  Elson; equipment, Kathy Wallis,  and liaison, Ann Pearsall.
