 Provincial Library,  Victoria,  B.  c.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 29, Number 15  April 13,1976  15* per copy  on newsstands  LAST WEEK'S WEATHER  April 3  April 4  April 5  April 6  April 7  April 8  April 9  Week's Rai  Low  IC  4C  IC  6C  3C  7C  6C  High  13C  12C  14C  14C  13C  9C  14C  Ram  Nil  Nil  11.4mm  Nil  3.6mm  7.4mm  Nil  1976-502.4mm  April 22.4mm  Cutbacks may force  teacher layoffs  As many as 42 teachers may face a lay off in this district  and education services may have to be cut back drastically in  order for the board to lower its budget and make the school mill  rate palatable to local taxpayers.  Commenting on a recent announcement made by Education Minister Pat McGeer to the effect that local school districts  would be responsible for increased costs in education, School  Trustee Claus Spiekermann told the board at a meeting in Halfmoon Bay last week that' 'it is very difficult to do anything else  but lay off teachers."  "   L  } r-  J J., ,  �� ,l  ROAD HOG  AND YOU'RE THE  line-ups. Wait until  ONE that's always beef in' about ferry  you get behind something such as this  four legged monstrosity recently found hoofing his way  up to Pender Harbour  kind.  You want to steer clear of such  4  Spiekermann said either teachers will have to be laid off or some  * education programs may be dras-  tically; cut. Some of these programs include alternate education  for both Elphinstone and. Pender  Harbour, the program for mental-,  ly retarded children in Gibsons,  and the upgrading of Elphinstone. It was also felt that the  learning assistance program  would be in jeopardy but district  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills  said that program is individually  funded by the province and will  not suffer unless that specific  budget is cut back.  The increased burden on local  taxpayers comes as a result of the  provincial government's announcements that education  grants would be cutback and that  local school districts would be responsible for education costs  which have increased significantly over the last few years.  It has been estimated that the  provincial education grant would  be about $30 million instead of  the $100 million which is the  amount needed to keep the basic  levy at 26.5 mills.       *  The 26.5 levy was suggested by  the former NDP government.  Education Minister McGeer indi  cated to the B.C. Teachers Federation annual meeting last  month that the basic mill rate set  by the province could be as high  as 32.5 mills. This is an increase  of six mills.  For taxpayers in this district  that means the basic levy could be  increased from the currently estimated 37.3 mills to 43.3 mills. If  none of the local programs and  services are cut back and no  teachers are laid off that six mill  increase means the district has to  dig up an additional $551,842  from the pockets of local taxpayers.  In his report to the board last  week, Secretary-Treasurer Mills  told the board that it will either  have to prepare itself and the  general public for a significant increase on the mill rate if the budget remains unchanged, or for a  series of budget cuts that will result in a mill rate that the board  feels able to support and to impose on the public.  Mills said that either of these  courses of action are likely to be  amongst the most significant and  far reaching decisions that the  board will be forced to make this  year. A special meeting to discuss  the budget has been called for  3 p.m., April 22.  Reacting to Spiekermann's  statement that 42 teachers may  have to be laid off. Trustee Peter  Prescesky said at last Thursday's  meeting that there was not that  much cause for alarm.  "I don't know why the BCTF is  creating such a spectre of laying  off teachers ��� I don't think it will  happen," Prescesky said. He  added that he felt austerity was  necessary but that it wouldn't  take the form of teacher layoffs.  The BCTF is particularly con-.  cerned about the possible teacher  layoffs not only because a great  number of teachers throughout  the province will lose their jobs  but also because it would drastically increase the pupil-teacher  ratio, which, says the BCTF will  bring down the quality of education.  The school district budget must  be adopted in its final form before May 1.  School Board to  alter boundaries  Dr. Peter Ransford head of the  Emergency. Health Services  Commission informed the Coast  News in a Friday afternoon  telephone interview that the  Minister of Health has decided  that the Halfmoon Bay ambulance  will definitely remain at its  present location, at least until a .  new ambulance station is opened  at the new Pender Harbour  Health Cbnic later this summer.  Dr. Ransford stated that letters  have been mailed to the Pender  Harbour Rate Payers Association  and the Sunshine Coast Regional  District informing them of the  departments decision.,The letter  to the Pender Harbour association  has. further advised them that  approximately 12-16 volunteers  will be needed to man the station  and that though the commission  is willing to supply the ambulance, equipment and a building  adjacent,to the health clinic, it  will be up to the' association to  find the necessary volunteers to  i take a limited training course.  The fate of. the ambulances  operated by Joan Clarkson of  Halfmoon Bay will not be finally  News flashes  An order by the B.C. Superintendent of Insurance,  Tom Cantell, has brought the development of Sechelt's  Seaside Village to a halt. The; order for the 241 lot subdivision was issued last week against Glenmont Holdings  Ltd., four other companies connected with the development, and two individuals. ,7  The order alleges contravention of the Real Estate  Act and directs those involved to stop selling, leasing, or  offering for sale or lease lots in Seaside Village.  The order is directed against Stanley James, President of Union Steamships Ltd;, S. James and Associates  Ltd., Sechelt Lands'Ltd., Interfacial Designs Ltd., and Bud  Gairns, an official of Interfacial.  The order alleges that purchasers of lots in Seaside  Village were required to enter into building contracts with  one or more of Glenniont's agents and that no such representation was in the prospectus.  ��� ��� ���,  A four year old Gibsons boy, Greg Cooney, was taken  to St, Mary's Hospital with a broken leg last Tuesday after  being struck by a vehicle on Highway 101 in front of Sunshine Coast Trailer Court.  Gibsons RCMP said a vehicle driven by Jack Skellett  of Gibsons hit the youth after lie darted out onto the highway. According to the police report, the boy had been behind the mailboxes along the highway and could not be  seen by the driver.  Police said the accident was unavoidable and no  blame is. being placed on the driver of the car. The accident occurred about 6:25 p.m.  The four year old is reported to be in good condition in  St. Mary's Hospital.  "    * * *  A two vehicle accident at the corner of Highway 101  and Lower Road caused $2,000 damage last Tuesday.  A vehicle driven-by Alice Bassey was southbound  when it collided with a northbound vehicle driven by  Bernhard Krafczyk of Port Mellon. Police said Krafczyk  was attempting to make a left turn from the highway onto  Lower Road when the accident occurred.  No major injuries resulted from the accident.  decided until after the Madeira  Park station is fully operational.  It was intimated however that the  proposed move to Sechelt will  still be made at that time. Dr.  Ransford admitted the public  pressure put on the commission  by the people of Pender Harbour  and Egmont, through both letters  to the minister and newspaper  reports had played a large part in  the reversal of the decision. He  admitted that the recent cutbacks  in both training and service funds  may hamper the opening of the  Pender Harbour station but he  promised that though the course  may be shorter than normal, the  volunteers would be fully qualified before being allowed to oper-  /  ate the service and that the original funds allocated for the new  station would still be available.  Dr. Ransford admitted that  there seemed to be a lot of misunderstanding about the. commissions decision and that  possibly the announcement  should not have been made until  all the arrangements were  finalized.  For-the residents of Pender  Harbour it is a hard won victory  over bureaucratic bumbling  and insensitivity. For Joan Clarkson at least it is a reprieve,  the question of where the Halfmoon Bay ambulance is to be  stationed will be- fought again  in the next few months.  The school board is considering  two   boundary   proposals'  that  would: give the new Sechelt Junior  ' Secondary School either 284 or  265 students this September.        '  ,      A study on the boundaries and r  ^^entiaV^^  thetnew school has been done by  principal Roland Hawes and the  results of the study were presented at last week's school board  meeting held in Halfmoon Bay.  The meeting was held in Halfmoon Bay because it was felt the  boundary decision would affect  ' persons living in that area the  most. About ten parents were on  hand at-Halfmoon Bay Elementary School to present their views  to the board.  One boundary proposal includes the area from Secret Cove  Road, sometimes known as the  , Jolly Roger Road, on the north, to  the cemetery corner (Highway  101 and Lower Road) on the  south. These boundaries would  give the Sechelt Junior Secondary  School 284 students, Pender Har  bour Secondary 154, and Elphinstone Secondary 616.  A second proposal would have  the northern boundary at South-  wood Road', presently- the southern bus boundary for Pender  Harbour-7Secondary, and: cerap-  tery corner on the south. vThese,  boundaries would give Sechelt  Junior Secondary 265 students,  Pender Harbour 173, and Elphinstone 616.  School superintendent John  ���Denley stressed last Thursday  that the boundaries are set primarily to establish staff and  equipment requirements for the  schools and that they were not  necessarily inflexible for the individual.  The boundary proposals will be  further studied by the board and  public, opinion is invited. The  school board will hold a special  meeting in Pender Harbour April  14 at Pender Harbour Secondary  to give residents in that area a  chance to voice their opinion on  the boundary matter.  m&:  Gibsons opposes ferry increases  ��� Another protest has been voiced critizing the  possible ferry rate increase this time from Gibsons  Council.  Aid. Jim  Metzler suggested at  last Tuesday  night's council meeting that a letter be sent to  - ^tates^t^ncr^^^ toll-char^ ^IsoW're^  instituted on the bridges going \ti and out of Vancouver.  Metzler said the ferry is the link with Vancouver  for Sunshine Coast residents just'as any bridge in  Vancouver is for people living outside the city.  He said increasing the ferry rates would have a  detrimental-effect on the Sunshine Coast because it  would increase the cost of living and would also hurt  the tourist trade here.  Metzler said the ferry was merely a movable  bridge and that increasing rates was 'highly unfair'  to the people living on the Sunshine Coast.  At press time the BC government had not increased rates although an announcement to that  effect is expected soon.  Businessman accuses  village of error  NETRESULT  . .IS WHAT YOUGETwhen you charge full speed ahead out of his crease in last week's final game that the Creek  and miss the goaltender. Even then Roberts Creek goalie took r>4 to win the Commercial Laegue championship.  John Crosby could swat the unidentified Gibsons player   You know what they say: If you can't take the puck into  the net, try taking the net to the puck ...  Hayden Killam, a Sechelt  businessman, accused the village  clerk and the village building inspector of incompetance at last  Wednesday night's council  meeting.  Killam told council he had received a "without prejudice" letter from the village clerk that  - gave him until April 26 to bring  his building, occupied by OK  Tires and Sechelt Building Supplies, up to National Building  Code standards. He claimed that  the building inspector had illegally approved the building in the  first place and that therefore the  fault lay at least partly with the  village.  The argument, which began  when Killam first started to rent  the upstairs portion of the building to another business, appears  to be a long way from being settled yet, though the upstairs portion, according to Killam, is now  vacant.  Killam had originally applied  for the building permit on the understanding that the upstairs area  was to be used only for storage.  When another tenant became involved council and the building  inspector decided that according  to the National Building Code  there was not adequate fire protection in the original design to  house the upstairs business. After several confrontations it was  finally agreed that the problem  should be sent to arbhrarion and  that both parties would abide by  the board's decision. The arbitration board found that two major  commercial tenants was not vi  able and also that the rear wall of  the building did not conform to .  the standards even for use as  originally planned.  The problem now appears to lie  in   the   interpretation   of   the  board's decisions. Killam claims  that it would have only cost him  $20 more to build the structure to  code specifications if the building  inspector had advised him of the  fire wall  discrepancy, but  that  now, because of the building inspector's alleged incompetence,  it will cost him much more to  bring the building up to village  standards. Even then he wiS be  unable to change 'his proposal  to include a second storey tenant  without making further changes.  Last    Wednesday's    meeting :  turned into a shouting match with  ' Aid. Morgan Thompson threatening to walk out unless acting  Mayor Ernie Booth kept better order. Aid. Frank Leitner told Killam he was "sick of his constant  complaining" and that since he  had   agreed   to   arbitration   he  should stick by the arbitration'  board's decisions and make the  necessary changes.  Killam admitted that his own ignorance had  played a large part in the developing of the current problems but  kept insisting that even if the alterations were carried, out the  building would still be non-conforming and even suggested at  one point that maybe they should  just "tear it down."  Council agreed to hold a further  meeting with Killam in late April  'to discuss the matter and to study  a written brief prepared by him.  V@f��( myp^wiawmfrDw  Sunshine Coast News, April 13, 1976.

We have elected a government in  Victoria that believes in giving it to us  right up front where it hurts. The most recent provincial budget has shown us:  if it's more services we want, if it's better  quality life through increased and improved social programs, fine, as long as  the individual taxpayer is prepared to  reach deep down to the bottom of the  pocket or purse to come up with the  necessary funds.  And so it is with education.  Recent indications from the Department of Education show us that local  school districts will be responsible for  a larger amount of school expenditures.  According to Education Minister Pat McGeer, school boards have been spending  lavishly and as the financial weight is now  being shifted to the local taxpayer, we  might surmise that we are being slapped  on the wrist for getting carried away with  the pursuit of an ever increasing quality  of education.  We might also surmise that we are  being slapped on the wrist for electing  the former NDP government. Former  Premier Barrett and his government were  elected with full and active support of the  province's teachers and once elected,  that government placed great emphasis  on improving the quality of education.  In the past five years the thrust  of education has been towards more  teachers, resulting in a lower pupil-  teacher ratio, special education programs  such as those for childern with learning-  disabilities, and better equipment and;;-  teaching aides. All that costs money, no  doubt. But as most experts involved in  education and the social services would  agree, it's worth it because a good quality  education probably helps to insure a  quality individual and as a logical conse  quence, a quality society.  We should not scrimp on education.  But neither should the local taxpayer be  faced point blank with a possible six mill  increase in school taxes. During times of  austerity and wage and price guidelines  no school board can in good conscience  toss a six mill increase in the lap of the  taxpayer. The result is that budgetary  expenditures will have to be cut and that  could mean anything from a teacher layoff to curtailment of special programs,  and a freeze on building expansion.  If it is the intention of the present  government to cut back spending on education, it could at least use some sense  and diplomacy by not turning the bill for  education into a political firecracker and  tossing it into the unsuspecting lap of the  local taxpayer simply to balance the government books.  Some tKrift  With hues and cries about the village  of Gibsons being broke, coming from  time to time out of such unlikely places  as the back woods of Roberts Creek, it  comes as a pleasant surprise for villagers  to see the state of the local economy is  rather stable.  The financial report for 1975.showed  that even with the mill rate held down to  29.4,/the village is  still  managing  to  accumulate  substantial   equity   without,,,  v incurring any hew major debtee     7�� $;^:  ;;;ltfs also nit^irf this da^-ia^d-age^  of rampant inflation to see that spending  for general government purposes was  actually about $3,000 lower in 1975 than  it was in 1974.  The federal government,  perhaps,  could learn some lessons there.  Students first  A special school board meeting will  be held this week to decide whether or  not to cut a significant chunk of money  out of this year's budget, and as School  Board Secretary-Treasurer told trustees  last week, it's likely to be one of the most  significant and far reaching decisions to  be made by the board this year.  The choice is this: Keep the budget  the same and let the local taxpayer suffer  the consequences of the provincial government's shift in financing, a decision  that would cost this district a half million  dollars or six mills, or cut back the budget  and by so doing curtail various programs  and projects that contribute to a higher  quality education for the children in this  district.  It's not an easy decision.  However, we do feel that six mills is  an unreasonable increase and we trust  the board will in all likelihood make an  effort for a substantial decrease in the  local budget to make the tax increase, if  any, a little more palatable.  Once the decision to cut the budget  has been made we also trust the board  will apply its austerity to the matters that  least affect the quality of education in this  district, and more to the administration  side of the budget.  People power  Last week's decision by the Emergency Health Services Commission to reverse the stand on moving the Halfmoon  Bay ambulance to Sechelt shows that people working together can indeed overcome the brick wall of bureaucracy.  When he announced that the ambulance would stay in Halfmoon Bay, Dr.  Peter Rancer, chairman of the EHSC,  admitted that the decision resulted mainly because of the public pressure.  Dr. Rancer has announced that the  ambulance would not move at least until  new ambulance facilities have been built  in the Pender Harbour area. His decision  was nothing more than common sense.  liiiiiiiiiiliiiiii  FIVE YEARS AGO  A $40,000 Gibsons Municipal  Hall expansion will include a  library, museum and court room.  A Regional District board  assessment on Gibsons for  $10,000 instead of last year's  $3,000 jolts the mayor and  aldermen.

Public Utilities Commission  asks Gibsons Council to define its  policy on water connections beyond village boundaries.  Bertrand Sinclair, Pender Harbour and Hubert Evans, Roberts  Creek were honored by the B.

Sechelt's (old) Legion hall will  be extended the length of the  building on one side of the hall.  v Gibsons council rejects Ernie  Carrwright's application to build  a marina in the harbor at the base  of Georgia Heights.  20 YEARS AGO  A school district vote coveting  $537,000 for added classrooms  passed 636 to 154, the result surprising board members.  Gibsons Board of Trade is striving to get an annual July 1 celebration organized to replace the  defunct May Day celebration.  25 YEARS AGO  Routine legislative approval is  expected shortly on the 25 year  franchise for Black Ball Ferries  system in Howe Sound.

The Village Council of Parksville  anounced  this  week  that  'about half of the letters they  mailed   to   every   village   and  regional   district  board   in  the  province in regard to the *lah-~  guage  question'  had  been  re-:  turned with favorable replies^ The  letters, mailed out about a month  ago, asked for support for a letter ���<  to   Premier   Bill   Bennett   ad-. .  vocating   the   adoption   of   the  English language as. the official  language of British Columbia.  The tone of the replies would  seem to indicate that some local  governments are not as gutless as  we think/Unfortunately the same  can not be said for the Villages of  Gibsons and Sechelt and for the  SCRD, they all decided to 'table'  indefinetly the Parksville request.  Their excuse is that it is not truly  an area of local jurisdiction,  although other -f councils and  ���brar^  ���of thei��job to-cc^mmunicate the  feelings of the people of their  area to the senior levels of government. It appears more likely  that since On other occasions  they have seen fit to criticise  the provincial government for  their handling of such primarily  non-local problems as human resources and highways legislation,  that personal sentiment and not  jurisdictional respect is the key to  understanding their attitudes  towards the request.  The Parksville request should  not be taken lightly, there is a lot  of merit in the village's.proposal  to make 'English our official Ian-.  guage'. Hopefully, it would once  and for all show Ottawa that' we  do not want bilingualism on a  local scale and that we are  unwilling to accept such policies  as the turning'over of radio and  TV rights to a very small min-  .  ority.  Why should the French have  special rights that other larger  i ethnic groups are denied?-  I could understand the concept  of a multi-cultural TV station with  time alloted on per capita basis  much better than I can grasp the  need for a French only network.  The idea of a truly bilingual  Canada -does not apply to the  west. The French colony in B.C.  lags far behind other major ethnic  groups such as the Chinese and  ^ Eastern European communities  in both" population and impact oh  our lifestyle, yet many products  meant only for local consumption  must still bear the added expense  of two language packaging.  On a natioanl level the bilingual  policy makes sense. It is imperative that in order to maintain  our unity we must respect the  rights of the French population  in areas where they represent a  reasonable proportion of the local  ii community. It is time we realized  ithat Canada is too large for the  [ broad   edicts  that   the  federal  government is constantly issuing.  What is good for one part of the  country may seem totally ir-  relevent 3000 miles away.  A reasonable alternative to  national bilingualism is a system  of designated French, English  and bilingual areas with the  choice being made by the residents of each region. This idea  is not as radical as it may seem  to many of this country's small '1'  liberals. After all it is merely a  matter of recognizing a pattern  which has existed since Wolfe  and Montcalm met on the Plains  of Abraham. In many areas of  Quebec the local people refuse to  speak any other language than  their native French, and rightly  so. In B.C. we constantly resent  the intrusion of another 'official  language' into our political and  social systems and again, rightly  so.  I am quite prepared to grant  Quebec the right to choose its  own language, by individual area  or by provincial means. All. I  am suggesting is that B.C. be  given the same right to make its  own choice. If any province wants  to adopt a bilingualistic approach  let the people of that province  make that decision for themselves. As a nation we can adopt  a dual language system for the  necessary areas of communication such as national government  and trade without running roughshod over the local right of lan  guage determination.  It would be nice to see each  province given the democratic  right to determine for itself  whether it will adopt a single language or follow the federal  bilingual program.

Letters to the Editor  WRONG RALLY  Editor: After reading the Sunshine Sketches column in the  March 30 issue of the Coast News  about the Women's Rally Idecid-  ed the writer could not be writing  about the same "Women's Rally  for Action" I attended in Victoria  March 22.  His anonymous informer was  not one of the official group of  lobbyists I accompanied to Victoria. The lobbyists for Mackenzie  included three women from Powell River, one from Bella Coola  and Betty Berdahl and Joan Hag-  gerty from Roberts Creek.  These women met with MLA  Don Lockstead for at least one  hour and received encouraging  sympathetic support in our protest for the present government's insensitivity to the women  of this province.  A brief entitled "Issues of concern to women of British Columbia" had been previously sent to  all MLAs. Our lobbyists spoke on  three issues in the brief���family  law, child care, and education.  Don Lockstead was well aware of  the inequities in these areas and  in other areas as pointed out in  the brief. He promised support  for our demands and noted that if  his party was returned to government, the departments for women  that have been closed by the present government would be reinstated. The lobbyists and Don  Lockstead planned a future meeting after this vession of parliament. A far cry from the reporter's version.  ing after this session of parlia-  that women could not agree and  support one another even during  such a crisis and the suggestion  that the lobbyists were so foolish  as to talk of lesbian rights can be  totally discounted.  This reporting is so typical of  the media's usual coverage of any  event relating to the women's  , movement that I am hardly disap-  '7 pointed with our own Coast News,  c But disappointed I am.  v~ This is the decade of equality,  j so declared by the United Na-  ; tions. So come on Coast News,  j Surely local history is no more  ) ''practical" than protesting the  historical and present discrimination against women in B.C.  H���SHARON CRAIG.  g DON'T LET IT DIE  I? Editor: The following is a copy  jipf a letter, addressed to Peter  (Hoemberg, Chairman of the Sun-  ; shine Coast Regional District  ^Public Utilities Committee.  i     May I add my voice to the  'clamor which I hope will go.up  pleading the cause of recycling.  \ The Sunshine Coast was smart  enough to get a system going  through the good offices of two  commendably public-minded citizens��� Mr. Tom Haigh and Mr.  Glen Watts. Let's not be so stupid  as to let it die on the vine!  I read in the Coast News that  there is some danger of this happening and yet right along side  *(said article on the front page of  'April 6 issue is an item'entitled:  The auditors... were satisfied  with the results and considered  the SCRD to be in excellent  financial shape'. Note the word  'excellent'.  , Surely, in these circumstances,  there is no excuse for us to bog  down on efforts to live more  thriftily, more intelligently and  with at least some heart for our  fellow man on this earth. Years  ago, when I heard harrowing tales  of the working conditions of the  nien who were employed in the  tin mines in Bolivia and elsewhere in South America, who, as  a result, had a life expectancy  of only twenty-five years, and I  realized how fast the result of  their deadly labor was going to be  plowed back into the ground  again, I was horrified. I remember trying to 'stir powers  that be' of the time but was a  little ahead of what our economy  could then achieve. But now that  we have been, at last, able to get .  something started, please shore  the effort up.  I went right out and bought  myself an electric can-opener  so that I could take the tops  and bottoms off all tins, flatten  the body and save at least my  small bit. What we need is a  good educational program about  the .origins of tin and glass and  paper. But how many in spite of  the nearness of mills to us have  been through the mill at Ocean  Falls, Powell River, Port Alberni  even our own small one here at  Port Mellon. Then we should  have a look at the glass-blowing  industry and start a campaign  for those tin miners. Could we  ever hold up our heads again if  we countenanced j any waste in  these materials.    ,  After all conservation of mass  and energy are self evident  fundamental first laws of nature!  Whatever comes or goes let's  keep those two good fellows at  their worthy work!.  ���A. M. MARTIN  MUCH PROGRESS  ; I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the article  written by Carolynn Bichler in  the April 6, 1976 edition of the  . Coast News, relating to children  with learning disabilities. Y  believe that much of what was  written in the article was informative and hopefully provided  information to the general public  as to the nature and extent of the  problem that each child has, and  that the problems the district  has to face in attempting to serve  their special needs.  I have discussed this matter  on many occasions with various  members of our School Board.  I believe them to be aware of the  problem and they are sincere in  doing their utmost to provide  the means- to assist teachers and  parents to help children. I feel,  also, that much progress has been  accomplished over the past few  jtears in the district, particularly  in the area of remedial programs.  I am certain that the school  board members will agree that  there is still more that must be  accomplished when finances-  and further expertise make "  possible.  While I can only speak of my  own personal experiences, 1.  have never doubted that the  teachers in this district are very  concerned and recognize that  the children with learning dis-  . abilities require special attention  and programs. The professional  staff are truly dedicated and are  doing their very best to guide  these children towards individualized programs, best geared  for each child to achieve his  maximum potential.  ESTHER REID  Gibsons  MORE PROTESTS  Editor: I protest the intended  move of the Halfmoon Bay ambulance service to Sechelt. Gibsons  and Sechelt residents would then  have all the ambulance service  plus hospital in a 17 mile area  leaving the 40 miles to Egmont  without any service at all.  If the ambulance station is to be  moved it should be relocated at  Pender Harbour or Egmont.  ���DIANE BOSCH  Egmont  Kinsmen  pool survey;  the question of the Kinsmen's  proposed swimming pool project  came up again at last week's Gibsons council meeting and it was  suggested that a public survey beheld in conjunction with a Gibsons vicinity plan survey.  Council had orginally decided- -  to hold a public referendum on-'.  the  poll   question  during  next' "  November's municipal elections���"  but a letter from a Gibsons resi-i  dent.   Lera  Cleland,  suggested'  that council hold the referendum  now or forget the project alto- .  gether.  Council is in favor of the pool  project but is also concerned  about receiving taxation money  from regional district areas E and'  F whose residents would probably  be using the pool facility.  The Gibsons Kinsmen Club has  offered to pay $600,000 for the  capital costs of the pool but after  that the village would be responsible to subsidize the net operat-i  ing costs of the project. Kinsmen;  officials have estimated the yearly  operating costs of the pool to be  between $70,000 and $80,000 and  they feel that 80 percent of that  would be recovered through nor-.*  mal operating revenues.  Council's major question now is,  whether the residents of areas E  and F want to contribute to the  operating deficit of the project. It"  was noted at last week's meeting'  that the increase to the taxpayers,  of areas E, F and Gibsons would-  be a fraction of a mill. ;  Council will discuss the matter  further in an upcoming planning  committee meeting.  Gibsons stays  in the black    ���  The year end financial report  for Gibsons was released as last  week's council meeting and according to administrator Jack  Copland the village is in excellent  financial shape.  The report, prepared by the  Vancouver accounting firm of  Dunwoody and Company, shows  the capital revenue fund to be  well up over 1974 even though the  mill rate has remained stable at  29.4 mills. The 1975 capital fund  , stands at $1,312,691 compared to  the previous yearns $8467647. ' -'"-*'  The village's only major outstanding capital debt as of  December 31 of last year was  $79,000 for the sewer system. The  sewers are a self liquidating  operation and a total of $11,300  was paid off for this debt during  1975.  The general surplus and equity  for the village stood at $796,559  at the end of 1975 compared to  only $539,998 at the end of 1974.  The water utilities fund experienced a surplus of $3,245 last  year.   Capital  funds  for water  stood at $485,889 with surplus'  and   equity  totalling   $368,324.  Capital funds for sewers totalled  $1,394,684    with    the    surplus  and equity coming to $247,246.  The sewer surplus last year was  $53,994.  Even though inflation hit hard  . in 1975, village spending remained   surprisingly   low   compared  to the  year  previous.  General  government expenses, including  such items as salaries and office  expenses came to $54,740 compared to well  over  $57,000  in  1974.  Transportation expenses were  $77,891, up about $13,000 over  the year previous and enviro-  mental health services, including  garbage was $2,006, down  slightly over the year previous.  Environmental development  services (planning and zoning)  and recreational and cultural services stood at just over $12,000  which is up slightly compared to  1974.

The  sermon will commence at 7 a.m.  Mr. Nessim will also be guest  speaker at the two Baptist  Churches, at the 9$;30 a.m. service n Gibsons and the 11:15 a.mh  service in Sechelt.

Doug says: "It can only be  hoped that die regional board will  listen." Listen to the people, I  assume.  May I say that if the board does  not listen then let us by all means  fire the directors. After all we did  hire them and it's at our option  that they stay. I'm afraid a lot of  people lose sight of that very important fact.  ���S. ANDERSON  UNION ERRORS  Editor: Your April 6 issue  included a history of the Union  Steamship Co. The author seems  to have compiled his first instalment in large part by summarizing Gerald Rushton's book  'Whistle up the Inlet'. However,  if Mr.Sewell will examine again  page 75 of his source he will  find that he has introduced  several errors not attributable  to Mr. Rushton.  (1) The All Red Line Ltd.  was not owned by Bert Whitaker.  The principles in the Company included Capt. Charles Polking-  horne,   Capt.   Sam   Mortimer,  Capt. W.H.M. Townsend and  Capt. Willesden. Before the All  Red Line was incorporated in  1911 Capt. Mortimer worked for  Bert Whitaker.  (2) Bert Whitaker was Managing Director of the Sechelt Steamship Co. Ltd., which operated  S.S. Sechelt-. This vessel was  never in the service of Union  Steamships. Many lives were lost  when S.S. Sechelt sank in the  Strait of Juan de Fuca in March  1911 after Bert Whitaker had  sold her to a Victoria firm.  (3) In January 1913 Capt. Sam  Dawe took S.S. Tartar via the  Skookumchuck to Porpoise Bay,  where Mr. Whitaker had decided  to lay her up for the balance  Crusher hums 'Adeline  byMDXEJEPSON  Things are really humming up here  And I have much to relate.  Someone has set up a rock crusher mill  Right next to the Cattanach Estate.  Now Ian was very much upset  So he phoned our friend Ed.  He said if you let them keep crushing rock  I'm sure someone will.be dead.  Now Ed is a man who does his job;  This is a fact you can't deny.  He rushed right up to that gravel pit  To find the reason why.  He  said  someone  is making an  awful  noise  And the neighbors it does bug. .  I would like to talk to the manager.  I think his name is Doug.  So he started up the crushing plant  And everything went fine.  Ed said it sounded like it was humming a tune  Of Dear Sweet Old Adeline.  Now Ian was not yet satisfied  As he is a man of strong will.  So he wrote a letter to the Regional Board  For permission to build a sawmill.  The Regional Board's reply was very prompt.  And it also was nay.  It said you are not zoned for such a plant  And you must not non-conforin in any way.  Now noise is noise, this is the truth  No matter where you be;  Whether you work in Area A  Or live in Area E.  Now I don't wish to criticise  And I don't want to cause ho offence   .  But it makes a person wonder x  If our bylaws make good sense.  Well Ian did build his sawmill  It was tuned to key of C,  My old dog is tuned to key of B,  ' And that rock crusher is tuned to G.  Now when they get going at the same time  It sure does not sound very nice.  I don't care what you say  It does not harmonize.  Oh my poor aching head.  Where that noise comes from I don't know.  I can't hear the neighbor screaming at her kids  Or hear my rooster crow.  Oh well someday it will all end;  The rocks will get crushed and lumber all sawn  And it will be so goll darned quiet  You will not be able to get to sleet til dawn.  I'll be able to hear my rooster crow  And my dog barking at the moon  And Vicki screaming at her kids  I hope it happens soon.  Foods Feature  How is making a good salad like  behfg a brilliant diplomat?  "To make a good salad is to be  a brilliant diplomat. The problem  is entirely the same in both cases  ��� to know exactly how much oil  to put in the vinegar''!  There is always truth in this  quote from Oscar Wilde, the famous English playwright except  that today, in addition to our own  salad dressing recipes, we are  fortunate to have countless ready-  made ones from which to choose.  And then, of course, there is an  unlimited number of ingredients  at hand to combine and to mix  and match.  Basically, there are three types  of dressings: mayonnaise, French  and salad dressing. They differ in  oil content. To be called mayonnaise, the dressing must contain  65% vegetable oil; French and  salad dressings must contain 55%  oil.  Mayonnaise and salad dressings look very much alike. Mayonnaise is emulsified with egg to  form a thick dressing. It also contains vinegar or lemon juice, salt,  _ sugar and seasonings. Commercially-made salad dressing does  not have as much oil as mayonnaise and has added thickeners.  French dressing is liquid and is a  temporary emulsion of oil and  vinegar with seasonings. Since  the oil separates from the vinegar, French dressing must always  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 to April 20   LIBRA - Sep,. 22 to October 22  A tremendous "chance of a lifetime" is awaiting Aries individuals.

'  Economical homemade  salad  dressings can be prepared with a  variety   of   ingredients.   Dairy  foods, such as sour cream, yogurt  and cheese make refreshing and  unusual dressings for the summer  months. Vinegar, which is an ingredient common to almost any  dressing when lemon juke is not  used, can be seasoned for added  flavor. Select herbs such as dill,  oregano,   thyme  or  marjoram,  crush them in the palm of your  hand and add them to die measured   vinegar   needed  in   the  recipe. Leave in a tightly capped  bottle for several days in a warm  place. Strain the vinegar through  cheesecloth and incorporate if into the dressing recipe. If possible,  prepare salad dressings ahead of  time to allow them to develop a  full flavor. To avoid having a soggy salad, add them only at the last  minute.   Make   sure  the  salad  greens are clean and dry. Dressings cling better then.  Mayonnaise is the most com-  ,   mon ingredient in many dressings  It combines well with a variety of  condiments and seasonings. Thin  it with lemon juice and add ketchup and Worcestershire sauce  for a delightful main salad dress-,  ing, For a nippy topping, mix blue  cheese or Roquefort with it.

TOMGREGORCHUK  Publicity ��� Chairman    for  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons.  the  SERIOUS WASTE  Editor: The following is a copy  of a letter addressed to the Sunshine Coast Regional Board.  Dear Sirs:  We are not quite certain from  newspaper reports whether a  final decision has been made  vis-a-vis funding the Peninsula  Recycling Project. The disposal of  waste matter of all types has  become one of the most serious  problems of the modern world.  We feel strongly that the  argument that we cannot afford  to support re-cycling is not  valid in this last quarter of the  century'-, on the contrary it  becomes increasingly obvious  we can no longer' afford not to  recycle.  We urge you to take this matter  very seriously and . re-think  if necessary. It wasn't so long ago  that garbage pick-up paid for by  everyone was considered impractical - if we all pay for recycling more-of us will make that  small extra effort to use it and  savings for us all will result.  FRANK & MARYANNE WEST  GRATEFUL  Editor: At the annual luncheon  meeting of the Vancouver Coast  Region, Boy Scouts of Canada, on  Sunday March 28, 1976, held  at the Bayshore Inn, a sincere  vote of thanks and appreciation  was extended for.the support your  newspaper has given scouting in  the past year.   .  The attendance was 358 from  Greater Vancouver, Powell River,  Sunshine Coast and East Howe  Sound communities.  We are indeed grateful for your  fine support of the many scouting  activities   and   hope   this   will  continue in the year ahead.  S. MANNING  Chairman,  : Annual Meeting Committee  Pepper Mills and Salt Shakers  by "Baribocraft", well made  and folly guaranteed. Miss  Bee's, Sechelt.  Sunshine Coast News,April 13,1976  My grandmother is in her 80s  and feeling pretty well these  days. As long as I have known  her, she has been on a restricted  intestinal diet because of diverti-  culae (pouches) in her colon. This  meal regime was very bland and  easily digested.  Ever since being hospitalized  three summers ago, she has been  eating food relatively high in fibre  ���whole grains, bran, most vegetables and fruit. And she feels  wonderful.  Why?  Fibre, that is skins, seeds and  structural parts of plants and  flesh, is duly necessary for the  proper muscular shape and tone  of the intestines. It provides for  proper evacuation of the bowels  and carries with it unwanted residues, bacteria and parasites.  Take a look at the refined products which are so common in  people's shopping baskets. White  flour, sugar, processed convenient cereals and cheeses etc.  ��� Just as common are fibre-  related diseases like diabetes,  obesity, gall bladder disease,  varicose veins and hardening of  the arteries. Not to mention colon  problems.  Dr. Burkitt and his research  colleagues in Africa are revealing  what should be obvious. The fact  is that where the diets in Africa  have been traditionally high in .  indigestible fibre, bowel move-  WANTED  Used furniture 01 what  have yon  AL'S USED FURNITURi  WE BUT BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  by DONNA GAULIN        '��������  ments are regular and very loose.  The Incidences of the diseases  mentioned are quite rare.  The refining of foods ��� a so  called technical advance ��� causes the loss of much or all of its  nutrition and roughage. Certainly, over-processed "quick energy" foods have little relationship  to   wholesomeness.   Otherwise,  the nutritional and medical status  of our country would be better.  Bran, the outer husk of the  wheat kernel is hard cellulose  which cannot be broken down by  the digestive enzymes. It is, unfortunately, lost in the milling of  refined white flour. Natural bran  is one of natures laxitives and can  be added to baked products and  cereals. I occasionally slip a few  tablespoons into casseroles.  If you have any of the medical  problems mentioned, see your  doctor before radically changing  your eating habits. Moderation is  always important just as is  change.

This is the second part of a two  part series fn which Doug SeweD  takes a look at the Union Steamship Company and how it Influenced the early days of the Sunshine Coast.  The war period had proved to  be a boom time for many of the  coast settlements and with the expansion of both the Powell River  and Port Mellon mills after the  armistice, it was decided to add  two new day trippers to the Selma  Park-Gulf Coast run. The "Chil-  koot" was placed on the weekend  run to Cowichan and ^avary Island and the 135 foot "Capilano  11" was built for the new resort  being developed at Selma Park.  Each weekend the Capilano II  brought hordes of visitors to the  Roberts Creek and Wilson Creek  "camping centres" then continued on to the Union Estates resort. On Sundays the trip in-'  eluded stops at Halfmoon Bay,  Pender Harbour and. Buccaneer  Bay.  In December of 1920, Captain  Jack Cates sold the Union Co. his  Terminal Line, including the  Bowen Island property and the  . A ships Ballena-��nd Bowena. The  company how had a virtual monopoly on the Howe Sound trade  and the new resort on Bowen was*  immediately developed into Vancouver's "seaside playground."  When the Bowen resort was  brought up to date, the ships Capilano and Cheam were reconditioned and' added to the new  route. The Bowen Island resort  became incredibly popular during  the. early 1920s and it was soon  necessary to add two more vessels on a run from Whytecliffe  in West Vancouver to the Snug  Cove wharf.    ... ,  The Lady Alexandra, a 225 foot  day tripper was finished in 1925 ���  and was licensed to carry 1400  passengers on the Bowen run.  . The. nighttime "dance cruises"  ' aboard the "Lady Alex" became  a popular event during the roaring twenties. By 1930 the Union  Co. had carried over half a million  visitors to the resort island. Two  large day trippers, the "Lady  Cecilia" and the "Lady Cynthia"  were built for the Howe Sound  and Powell River runs in 1925.  The Union Steamship Co. was  at the height of its popularity and  the successes with the Bowen and  Selma Park developments had  wet their, taste for more resorts.''  In 1920 the Sechelt Hotel and 240  acres were added to the company  holdings and by 1925 Sechelt had  become the company's most popular resort. In its heyday between  1925 - 29, six vessels were serving  the Selma Park and Sechelt developments.The "Chilco" was kept  : on a regular Pender Harbour run  | and for awhile the "Comox 11"  ���\ was put on a special excursion run  from Porpoise Bay to Pender Harbour through the Skookumchuck  ! Rapids.  The "Gulf Coast" was a popular area when all of a sudden the  bottom dropped out of the tourist,  economy as the depression set in.  , The Bowen Island resort held its  j own through the worst of the de-  j pression but it was to be many  1 years before the Sunshine Coast  ! tourist industry revived. By the  time the economy had returned to  normal the Union Steamship Co.,  was meeting with serious competition on the run and with an outdated fleet, slowly her hold on the  , lower coast began to slip.  The Bowen resort, however, re-  \ mained the company's strongest  i asset, in 1937 they carried over  171,000 day trippers to the island.  ; By 1939 the Bowen Inn had been  modernized and it was still a popular family outing.  The Union Company slowly began to move away from passenger  service in 1939; when they pur-,,  :chased/ prank Waterhouse & Co.,  iof^anada Ltd. and put six more.,  cargo ships on to the coastal run,  The company was slow to recover  from the depression and by the  time that  pleasure travel was  banned in 1940 they were just be-  E.

B.C.  r  Indonesia - Three thousand  miles of cultural contrast  If you're looking for someplace  just a little bit different for this  year's vacation, the Indonesian  archipelago is well worth considering. The thousands of small  islands that snake their way  from the Pacific to the Indian  . ocean and from Australia to Asia  have a special tropical, charm  and Asian romance all their own.  These are the fabled spice  islands of centuries past, a crazy-  quilt of contrasts in culture,  religon, geography and development." With 125 million  people, two thirds of which are  packed on to the two islands of  Java and Bali (just seven percent of the nations land area).  Indonesia is, in population terms,  the fifth largest country in the  world, yet it is also one of the  least explored and most-undeveloped areas ^of the "earth's  surface.

Jakarta, the capital of the independent republic is a flat,  sprawling city of red-tiled roofs  and minaretted-mosques. The  Indonesian government seems to  have a passion for building monuments, the most remarkable of  which is the National Monument  that towers over.Jakarta topped  by a golden torch flame worth  over a quarter of a millon dollars.  The city's streets are a cacophony  of noise, street pedlars, honking  cars and buses and the bicycle  cart, Beckaks. Sites to see include  the bird markets, the lush orchid  gardens, Jalan Surabaya market  and the gambling casinos to the  north of the city.  In central Java is the awesome  Borobudor, a fascinating collection of ancient Buddhist  architecture and ten miles east of  the town of Jogja lies the ninth  century Hindu Prambanan temple. The town of Jogja is the cultural centre of the Island of Java  and includes the residence  of the national dance company,  the batik factories and the  Indonesian silversmiths.  After the noisy confusion of  Java the - quiet solitude and  dignity of Bali is very welcome.  The beaches at the towns of Sanur  and Kuta are the island's main  attractions and set against the  backdrop of the ancient Balinese  religon (which is still actively  ��� practised) and the beautiful  volcanic mountains, it has an  allure which is not easily forgotten. Among the not-to-be-  missed excursions are the San-  geh, holy monkey forests, the  ancient temples and monasteries  and the craft centres at Mas,  Ubud, Celuk, Klungkung and  Lenganan.  The Bali people solemly believe  that too much thinking makes you  grow old and that life should not  be rushed. If you are in a hurry,  give it a miss, the slow pace will  drive you mad.  Java and Bali are only two of  the thirteen thousand islands  of the Indonesian archipelago,  the more adventurous traveller  could spend a lifetime exploring  the small coral atolls and the  quiet volcanic islands along the  3000 mile chain.' But for a vacation that is something different,  few places rival the ancient  splendor and fragrant tropical  charms of this famous 'paradise  on earth'.  George Townsend  885-3345 eves.  ginning to modernize their, fleet.  In 1941 the C.P.R. sUently bought  control of the company but did not  interfere with the day to day operation. One after another the company's ships were taken for war  service and by 1944 they could no  longer maintain service to the '  Selma Park property and therefore decided to sell the development later that year.  In May of 1946 the new Gulf  , Lines began, service to Sechelt  and Powell River and took much  of the Union's business away with  their faster more modern ships. A  series of accidents culminating  with the grounding of the "Lady  Cecilia" on Buccaneer Bay in  1947 further hurt the company's  service. By the end of 1949 the  day excursion trade had fallen so  badly that the Union decided to  halt the Sechelt run after the 1950  season. The competition had been  too much and by 1951 the Gulf  Lines had gone broke. The Union  Steamship Company service to  the Sunshine Coast was finally  destroyed for good when the  American, owned Blackball Ferry.  Sendee--began:; operation, from.

In 1953 Sechelt was finally phased  out of the Union Estates holdings.  The company was in a terrible  financial position, their refusal to  move into the car ferry service  and bad management had taken  their toll. In 1958 all passenger  service, even aboard coastal  freighters and northern vessels  was halted and on January 14,  1959 the entire Union Company  fleet was sold to Northern Navigation.  For 70 years the Union Steamship Company of British Columbia served the isolated communities of the B. C. coast. With out  them it is doubtful whether much  of the coast could have been  opened up and if many of the new  settlements could have survived.  The people of the British Columbia owe a lot to the men who  ran those sturdy ships through  some of the worst waters in the  world, m weather conditions that  would stop most modern ships  from sailing.

The  dance would not have been possible without the help of many  people who generously gave of  their time and energy to organize  and promote it. I would like particularly to thank Mick Henry who  not only designed the tickets but  also made and distributed those  fine posters, and to the proprietors of the Dogwood Cafe, Joy  Graham, and the volunteers at  Whitaker House who sold the  tickets. Special thanks also go to  Norm Sallis and to Bob and Joy  Graham who co-ordinated the arrangements for the hall and refreshments, and to Hugh Archer,  David Hauka, Danny MacKay,  Linda Mosely, Bob Morgan,  Clarke   Steabner,   Jeremy   and  Judy Young, Keith Wallace, Susan Wolpert and Lola Woodley,  all of whom helped with various  other tasks essential to the function's smooth running.  Ballots were provided for  reactions to the last two films  screened by the Film Society,  'L'mvitation and Love which  allowed the audiences to rate the  films, excellent, very good,  good, fair or poor.

Some  commented on Love to the effect  that the pacing of the film was too  slow, but another member termed  it 'A beautiful production...If  it came next week, I'd see it  again.'  The program for this Wednesday is an all comedy one  featuring Ingmar Bergman's  comedy A lesson in love and The  pawnshop with Charlie Chaplin.  A comedy by Ingmar Bergman  will come as no surprise to  members who saw Smiles of a  summer night last season which  well demonstrated Bergman's  lighter vein. Here is a review of  this week's film taken from Robin  Wood's'Ingmar Bergman'.  A lesson in love is one of  Bertgman's most underestimated  and neglected films. The popular  image of Bergman as a frigid  intellectual can scarecely survive  a viewing of this film. Indeed,  the generosity shown to the  characters quite contradicts the  opening's visual suggestion  that they are to be regarded as  musical-box mechanical dolls,  and the superior-ironic tone of the  introductory commentary which  tells us that we are to see a very  elementary lesson that we can  watch with an indulgent smile.  This is of course the point: Bergman's irony here is directed not at  the characters of the film but at  any superiority to them that we  may affect.  The improvisatory freedom of  construction allows Bergman a  satisfying inclusiveness in his  treatment of human relationships. Husband and wife, husband and mistress, wife and  lover, fathers and daughter, man  and parents; relationships between three generations; different stages in the development of  attitudes to marriage, from the  daughter's adolescent demand  for idealism and purity, through  the varying contracts, compro  mises, and breakdowns of the  Ernemanns, to the stable but very  limited relationship of the grandparents; different stages in the  development of social attitudes,  from the grandparents' unquestioning acceptance of the permanence of the marriage union to -  the breakdown of such conventions in the Ernamann's generation and their consequently more  casual attitude to marriage and  family:, in A Lesson In Love,  Bergman covers all this with a  marvellously sure touch. The~  structure may look loose but the  proportions are perfect.  In The Personal Vision of Ingmar Bergman, Jorn Dormer says  of the film: The blend of the banal  and the important is splendidly  demonstrated in A Xesson in  Love. It is very funny, elegantly  presented; but in spite of the  flashback technique the actual  movement is mainly in the words.  A Lesson In Love oscillates between farce and seriousness,  poetry and realism.  40th. Anniversary Honors  Mr. and Mrs. L. Coates (Len  and Gladie) were honored March  21 at the Roberts Creek Community hall on the occasion of their  40th wedding anniversary.  The family of six children, Lois  McLean, Anne Phare, Linda Mc-  Guire, Dinah Reed, and sons Robert and Ray, and their partners,  children, and friends, decorated  the hall and supplied a well-  laden smorgasbord for the 120  guests.  The head table was centered by  a beautifully decorated two-tiered  wedding cake done by Helen  Weinhandl.  Bill Malyea did a very efficient  job as MC and provided music by  records and sound equipment to  which both old and young danced  with much enjoyment.  Out of town guests were  Gladie's uncle, Paul Harrison  from Sonningdale, Sask., cousins^  Don and Dorothy McDannald,'  and Harry and Dorothy Grad-  strom from Everett, Wash. Further out of town guests were  Len's brothers Allan Coates and  wife Isobel from Calgary, Ed  Coates and wife Rose from Rich-.  mond, his sisters, Mabel Heim-  becker from Richmond, and Inez  and Bob Smith from Surrey. Len  and Pat Pilling from Maple Ridge  and Fred and Pearl Feeney from  Chilliwack, fomerly from Gibsons  also attended.  A money tree was provided for  ' the guests to hang their gifts on. .  Len and Gladie also' noted that  30 years ago on the same date,  they arrived in Vancouver from  Ontario and shortly thereafter  moved to Gibsons to establish  a home on Reed Road. They have  15 grandchildren and one great-  granddaughter.  They have, seen many changes  in those 30 years and have enjoyed good health, good times,  and good friends. They have had  an active life in the affairs of the  community.  Canoeing for beginner to expert  ONE OF THE many watercolors by Chas. Murray on display recently at Whitaker House recently.

Depending on your interests, experience and equipment you can explore isolated waterways or dangerous rivers. As with other outdoor activities, it is very important to be prepared to be familiar  with your equipment and your  environment, and above all, exercise care and caution.  If you're a beginner or an amateur canoeist who wants to improve,    you    should    examine  Canoeing  and  Kayaking  ��� a  ' 'how to*' book with excellent text  and   illustrations.   The   author  analyzes the kinds of crafts available, ,��� material,  design and  size, as well as various paddles.  He provides detailed instructions  on the basics of canoeing and  kayaking  (such as straight-line  travel and turns) as well as chapters on white water, flat water  racing and touring. This would be  an excellent addition to your library. '  Once you've mastered the  canoeing technique, you're ready  to take a canoe trip. The most recent edition of British Columbia  Canoe Routes is an excellent resource book for this purpose^  Each river is graded according to  the international river classification system (explained in the beginning of the book). In addition,  the trips are preceded by explicit  and absolutely mandatory safety  procedures. There are 92 trips  contained in this book, covering  all areas of British Columbia,  including Vancouver Island and  the Interior. Each trip has details  as to length of the trip, duration  and difficulty as well as camping  site availability.  If you're interested in combining your canoeing with some hik  ing and exploration from a fixed  campsite, then almost any of our  Provincial Parks is an excellent  choice. Roland Neave has written  a very good Visitor's guide to  Wells Gray Park, which is about  85 miles north of Kamloops.  i Wells Gray Park has been known  '��� in the past for Helmcken Falls. In  this book, the author attempts to  acquaint the visitor with other exciting sights, such as the vol-  canos, lakes and lesser falls. This  .'book provides detailed informa-  - tion about all the areas of interest  in the Park, location, hiking  times, camping spots etc. There  is an appendix of 12 topographical  maps of the Park and specific  areas of interest.  If you prefer to get entirely  away from civilization and rough  'it in the wilderness, then you  should read How to Stay ABve in  the Woods. This book was originally published in 1956 under the  title Living Off the Country, and it  is still in demand to day; its value  is clear.. The author maintains  that at some time, for. whatever  reason,., you., may be. dependant  on your environment for survival;  everyone should be prepared for  this eventuality. How to Stay  Alive in the Woods tells you how  to provide for your basic needs  such as food, shelter, warmth and  safety. In addition, he has included a chapter on orientation ���  how to determine where you are  and how to "stay found" ��� or  how to avoid being lost.

FIRE CHIEF  Welcome To My Nightmare .  is Alice's most carefully planned  project first conceived over two  years ago when he became  fascinated with the demonic  visions that appeared in his  dreams. Realizing that his own  nocturnal images were only a  handful of the billions being  dreamed around the world, Alice  decided to present a set for everyone to share.  After choosing some of his  most horrifying visitations, Alice '  began pre-production work for  the sound track in association  with guitarist Dick Wagner and  composer Alan Gordon at Alice's  Los Angeles home.  Welcome To My Nightmare  presents yet another musical  facet of Alice Cooper; a more  diverse, melodious and haunting  side to the master of macabre  and mayhem.  It's been called the Jaws of  rock. It's the latest extravaganza  from the shock-rock master Alice  Cooper and k's a film that's  dazzled critics from coast to coast.  The Los Angeles Times called  Welcome. To My Nightmare  lavish family entertainment. It's  more likely, however, to attract  tha hard-core lovers of hard rock  and those that are bored with  character and plot and, instead,  would rather opt for a bit of kink.  ��� The film, which opens at the  Twilight Theatre in Gibsons,  Sunday April 18 and runs for"  three days, features such Cooper  classics as Eighteen, School's  Out and his latest top hit Welcome to my World.Dozens of  other outstanding numbers are,  according to the film's promoters,  presented in a lavish riot of color,  sound, music and fantasy settings.

The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons  have announced that Haig  Maxwell was elected the new  Deputy Governor for the Lower  Mainland Zone at the spring  zone meeting April 3 and 4 in  Port Coquitlam.  The local Kin Club, spen^  ' several weeks visiting the other  .eight clubs in the zone, campaigning at meetings. The club  also conducted a large final  campaign at the spring zone  meeting.  This seems to be a year of firsts  for the Kinsmen Club. Besides  having the .first deputy governor,  the club also won the Brian Prentice Zone Participation trophy  for the first time. This award  goes to the club that has done  ��� the most to raise its standards  by   participating   in   as   many  Kinsmen functions as possible.  Such functions include zone  curling held recently in Gibsons,  Schmockey, Mother's March, the  Kin Win Lottery and the blood  donor clinic. Another Kin activity  is the operation of the Kin hut  at the \ Langdale ferry terminal  which is set up every summer to  raise money for the community  swimming pool.  The blood donor clinic is not  a money raising venture but is  considered a community project  since any person in the community may need blood one day  to save his or her life.  The Local Kin Club also re  ceived recognition for having  the highest attendance at the  spring zone. This was another  first for the club. The Kinsmen  club thanks the residents of this  area and the local Kinette Club.  Without the support of the Kin-  ettes, a local Kinsmen spokesman said, none of these firsts  would have been possible.  Going through the Change of Light?

The club is  coached by Steve Holland.  "Not to worry" is a friendly little slang phrase which often offers comfort. And it's one frequently needed.  But how can we achieve a state  of mind where we can honestly  dispense with worry and still do  our active part in the world? In  her book, Science and Health with  Key to the Scriptures, Mary  Baker Eddy says "Desire is  prayer: and no loss can occur  from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded  and exalted before they take form  in words and in deeds". Certain  ly, simply to ignore that which  seems wrong about us neither  heals the situation.nor helps to  put our mind at rest. We must  pray to be shown the positive  steps necessary for us to take,  and then help where we can.     '  When we have honestly done  what we can to alleviate the human condition, it is time to leave  the situation in God's care. We  can obey with trust the Bible directive "In returning and rest  shall ye be saved: in quietness  and confidence shall be your  strength'' Isaiah 30:15.  OTTAWA  and Small  Business  Fallacy of minimum wage  By KENNETH McDONALD  All Canadians share  concern for the plight of  the working poor. They  prefer work to welfare. Yet  recipients of welfare are  awarded benefits -- public  housing, free health and  dental care, subsidized  transportation - which  provide a higher living  standard than can be got  from working. But  attempts to help the working poor by raising the  minimum wage only cause  more distortions.  ��� ��� a  Wage differentials are  created by unions in the  public and the private  sectors. In order to narrow  the gap between the organized and unorganized  sectors of the labour force,  governments raise the  minimum wage. It hasn't  worked. Each group continues to maintain its own  differential and the whole  wage structure rises.  Result: more inflation.  Ottawa sets the pace  with a $3 per hour minimum. Provincial rates are.  as high as $2.80. Yet in the  U.S. the minimum is $2.20.  In December. 1975, a U.S.  economist testified before  a Senate committee that  raising the minimum to  $3 would increase unemployment by one per cent  and the Consumer Price  Index by two per cent.  ��� ��� ���  Service businesses in  rural communities-feel the  immediate effect of higher  minimum wages. But as  higher wage costs spread  into manufacturing the  results are even more  serious. Canadians cannot  compete with Korean  manufacturers, paying  hourly rates as low as 28  cents; but to be noncompetitive with the U.S.,  our major trading partner,  is suicidal.

The danger is that the resulting  tax bill for such a program  would eventually be seen  by taxpayers as an employers subsidy. Political  pressures would then force  governments to raise  minimum wages again.  Union leaders call for a  minimum wage that would  cover ihe needs of a family  of four. But that would  be over-generous for a  single worker and still  inadequate for a larger  family. In any event, pay  is related to the job performed, not to the number  of dependents.  ��� ��� ���  The solution is to tie the  minimum wage to the  basic needs of a single  person and to increase  assistance to dependent  children. Single workers  at the minimum wage do  not live in poverty.  $13.99  $7.69  LAWN  CHAIRS  10.95 each  GARDEN RAKE  SHOVEL $6.95-$14.95  GIBSONS  Building Supplies  886-2642   or   886-7833  ���IMMMMMMMMM  .���**^sl  .�����������"~,  ������oee  ���.'���8c<  �������������������  :-��>.���>^  "*������������������  &. ���^ �����������  V-*-"- ""���"--o... ��... -^.^V  iS*^"'"  i:K:S  j%  MEATS  fe  CO-OP Recons.

Eugene Evanetz of Sunshine  Design and Development has already received council's approval  in principle for the development  to be located on what in now commonly known as the Wyngaert  property. The property is already  zoned to accommodate condominiums and will not need rezoning.  Evanetz told council Tuesday  night that each unit in the development, consisting of four and six  unit clusters, will sell for a maximum of $35,000 and that with  government mortgage assistance  monthly payments .could be as  low as $206 based on a 35 year  repayment schedule. Down payment for a unit could be as low as  $750 with the $1,000 B.C. Government Housing grant, for first  homeowners.  Evanetz said this medium density project would, provide housing for many people in the area  who can't afford to pay $45,000 to  $50,000 for a single family unit.  v He said the project will depend  entirely on pre-sales.- If 75 percent of the units can be sold  prior to construction, the project  will go ahead. Evanetz stressed  that initail commitments from  prospective tenants will not involve a cash deposit, but only a  letter of intent.  Grounds for the medium density project will be maintained on a  co-operative basis and each unit.  will come complete with washer,  drier and carpet. The size of each  unit is 1232 square feet.

A priority committee has been  formed to determine where the  money will go and how much will  be spent on a particluar- project.  The committee is made up of a  student representative, Bill Brad-  shaw; school board Trustee Don  Douglas, Maintenance Superintendent Bob Rutter, and Elphinstone Principal Don Montgomery.  All funds for the upgrading of the  school will be channelled through  this committee.  Students at Elphie have already indicated that the courtyard is a priority item. One"1 project, the painting of the cafeteria,  was completed by a group of students during the spring break.  . Indications were at last week's  school Board meeting that some  of the funds allocated in the bud*  get for the upgrading of Elphinstone may have to be cut back due  to. a recent announcement by  Education Minister Pat McGeer  to the effect that local school districts would bear a larger burden  in education financing.

NOTES FROM PENDER HARBOURSEOONOARf  WELL KNOWN actor Neamiah Persoff, a  veteran of many films including Al Ca-  pone, The Harder They Fall, and more recently the CBC production of Kaleshni-  koff, was in Gibsons last Week as guest  star for a Beachcomber episode. He plays  the role of.a cantankerous old man who  insists he's going to sail the Pacific Ocean  alone in his small sloop. The episode, is  called The Old Man and the Greek.  The sun is shining,. birds are  chirping and here we sit wishing  Spring Break wasn't oyer, finding  excuses to go outside and hoping  summer comes soon.  Noisy halls indicate the bustle  which occurs here. May Day  which was formerly cancelled  has been revived by Mis. Hoff  and some concerned citizens.  Among helpers are Community  Recreation 12 who are organizing  a super sports day for everyone -  from the very young to whatever  age wishes to compete. So some  exciting new races have been  devised. Maybe a whole new  spirit of May Day will occur.  Our Outdoors Club is going to  do their part too, by planning  a Carnival to run all May^Day.  Word has leaked out,^��:the'  Outdoors Club is sneaking  off again this year for a week  Jong canoe trip. It hasn't been  finalized but their hopes are up.  ' The Students Council is putting  on a dance a week from Friday,  music is supplied by 'Banshee'  and every student here is allowed  five guests.

Prices are low as $3. a person and  $5. a couple so come along and  enjoy yourselves.  Ah music; lovely strains of  assorted choirs and bands are  floating down the hall today.  Why? There's a music festival  occuring in our gym, that's why.  [The musicians are being judged  by SUSAN McCRINDLE  and last night at Roberts Creek,  Lhevinne Talento and EarlAntilla  both competed. Lhevinne won  first in her piano class and received many favorable comp-  Iiments.The _ Pender Harbour  choir also claimed awards, first  and best in the choral group class.  Track and field is beginning  and the Haida vs. Nootka challenge is on. Volleyball results  have Haida leading but a series of  fast moving basketball games  has me in doubt until the next  set of pouits are displayed.

Valencia Developments  reapplies for permits  sfc  Walter Froes'e.of Valencia Development has again made ap;  plication to Gibsons Council for  an apartement-commercial  complex that was earlier rejected  because of unfavorable public  reaction.  The developer has asked-that  lot 86, in the area of Highway  101 and Crucil Road be rezoned  from residential to commercial.  A six month waiting period was  necessary after the initial rejection before the application  could he'  According,to the initial proposal the development would  contain ten apartments, a licensed restaurant, a furniture or  carpet showroom, and professional offices.  The  matter  will   be   further  discussed at a planning meeting.  When the initial proposal was'  first presented, Crucil Road area  residents made it clear to council  that they did not want the area  zoned commercial.

For example, the proposed airport expansion on Sea Island will  have grave consequences which  will affect not only people living  in the Lower Mainland but also  those living all along the coast.  If the proposed runway is built  on Sturgeon Bank, marshland  which is an important habitat for  fish and wildfowl will be lost. The  Pacific coast fishing industry  could be hurt by the destruction  of the Fraser marshland and mudflats. The Fraser Estuary is an important rearing and feeding  ground for salmon, herring and  bottom fish such as flounders.  The salmon grown in its waters  represent a $73 million annual  commercial catch as well as a  large sport catch and a substan  tial Indian food fishery catch.  Twenty percent of the B.C. crab  fishery in dependent on the Fraser Estuary.  The Fraser Estuary-Delta also  supports the largest concentration of wintering waterfowl and  shorebirds in Canada and a large  number of migratory birds.  Destruction of the Sea Island  mudflats and marshland will increase pressures on other fish and  wildlife habitats in the Estuary.  Many of these other habitats have  Soap operas show humaness  by CAROLYNN BICHLER  Are you in the doldrums?.  Is your life exciting enough?  Do you want to experience more?  Here is the perfect answer to  your deepest hidden desires,  watch   television   soap   operas.  From 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.  there is a steady stream of  serials, as they are called in the  TV guide. You can become totally  engrossed in Mary's malignancy,  Mickey's break down, or Mona's  meddling. Never a dull moment  in the lives of these people.  You can share in their tears and  pain. Joy and happiness are  usually short lived, but you won't  be bored.  Every base, corrupt, or sexual  detail is paraded across the  screen with vivid realism, and we  women sit glued to our sets loving  every minute of it.  I have known a lot of people,  but none who suffer through as  much pain and trauma as my soap  heroes. Actually they are far from  heroes; what makes them so  appealing   is   their   humaness.  They carry on in ways that we  would never dare, and they suffer  for their transgressions while  we watch and suffer along with  them.  When we see these troubled  lives on our TV screens our lives  seem brighter and more positive.  We have all their experience  vicariously, so when we turn off  the set we can be greateful that  it's them and not us. Yet we have  run the gamut of emotions,  fear, hate, love, trenderness,  sadness, joy, despair and depression,   all  in   an  afternoon.  I first became addicted to the  soaps about ten years ago when  I was ill and had to have complete  .bed rest. I tired easily so watching a picture was. better than  reading. Today I still catch my  favorite programs when I can.  The great thing about serials is  that you can miss days or weeks  and pick the story up the next  time you tune in.  All of the fourteen soap operas  on TV today are financially  successful. People from all walks  of life watch them. Carol Burnett  is enthralled with 'the Young  and the Restless' and Sammy  Davis Jr. won't miss 'Love of Life'  At Princeton University about a  quarter of the student body  watches "the Young and the  Restless"  each afternoon. You  see we soap freaks are in good  company,  Soaps originally were meant  to be subliminal advertisers.  Oxydol's Own Ma Perkins,  begun in about 1933 on radio, was  the first successful program.  Proctor & Gamble's commercials  were buried in the plot, hence  the name soap operas. Advertisers are no longer subtle about  their product promotion, and they  do make a bundle from their  afternoon dramas.  If you're interested in sex,  excitement and tears that can  be turned off and on, the soap  operas await the flick of your  wrist. There is never a dull  moment, and life on TV allows us  to experience, without paying  the price that our troubled  television heroes have to pay.

A decision to expand airport  facilities on Sea Island will mean  the loss of this area for recreational and agricultural purposes.  Access to beaches in the area will  be cut off. Increased air pollution  Snd air traffic noise will make Sea  Island parks and beaches unappealing to the public. Airport expansion will increase traffic congestion and commercial development on the island but will make  Richmond a less desirable place  for people to live.  Estuaries are unique and vital  to the preservation of fishery  stocks and other forms of wildlife.  Deltas provide rich land for agriculture and scenic areas for recreation. Ad hoc development of  these areas threatens the preservation of our fisheries, wildlife,  agricultural and ��� recreational resources. Lack of planning by governments prevents the public  from choosing appropriate land-  uses for its deltas.  Expansion of the Vancouver  airport on ����a Island without consideration g�� the fishing industry  and of agricultural, ecological and  recreational interests could set a  dangerous precedent for development of port facilities or hydro  dams affecting other estuaries  along the coast.

Our student newspaper ever  watchful for controversy, started  critizing the radio club and not  without some justification.

Enough of this teeny  bopper crud. So from Wednesday  when the paper came' out until  Friday we played nothing but  the hardest rock we could get.  . Nazareth, Deep Purple, Alice  Cooper and so on. This was done  with the express purpose of  making everyone sick of rock so  we could turn on CFUN. It  worked.  By Friday hundreds of students  with shattered eardrums were  pouring into the radio room  begging for anything but rock.  What about the DeFranco Family  or Donny Osmond, they asked.  We grinned sadistically but the  battle was won.  The Student Council has been  asked to participate in the Sechelt  Timber Days. We all sat down to  .have a good think about it. After  Lawrence Jones finished both  his lunches we still hadn't decided anything. Then out of the  blue ski to speak, the idea  occured. Why not buy a used car  and raffle it off?  All right used car dealers this j  is   your   chance.   The ��� student  council is looking for a good used ;  car, not too expensive. Contact  the school office.  As you may have guessed from 7  all those students running around  a couple of weeks ago it was  spring break. When we all got \  back to Elphi we stepped into  the  lunchroom - and  marvelled, ;  there in front of us, behind us  and all around us was no longer  the dingy gray walls that had  pervaded the school, but a nice <  light sky blue. Not only that, but  on the far vail beautifully designed and colored arrows cut  across the blue.  It is, a sight  to behold. So I sought out two  of  the   master  minds  of  said  painting, Cathy Gibb and Jamie  McPhedran.  'Don't you just love it?' they  asked.  "Well, that is to say, yes and  no. What does it mean," I  queried.  . "What do you mean, what does  it mean?'  "Mean. You know message."  'Oh' said Cathy, Veil...'  and that led into an arguement  on the meaning of the painting,  the values of contemporary art,  and the competence of certain  school journalists. I walked out of  .the argument numbed.  To recover from this devastating attack Bill Proctor and I went  to the cafe across the street. We.  were well on our way to setting  a record for the most number of  refills while writing articles for,  newspapers  when  a  small   ar-1  gument on corporal punishment'  ensued. We wisely left before we  could get involved.  I wish all my readers a happy  midterm  and  good  results   on:  your report cards. To the rest of '  you a happy spring.  The grade seven class of the  Gibsons Elementary school has  asked the village of Gibsons for  co-operation in a spring clean up  week. The clean up week is another one of the money making  ventures that will allow the students to pay for a trip to Alberta  and parts of this province in late  May.  Ihe grade seven class, under  the direction of school principal  David Rempel, has asked council  if students could be hired for various village projects in conjunction with the village's own spring  clean up program.  Besides working through the  Equipment  rates rise by  20 percent  Ervin Benner, "��� owner and  operator of the Village of. Sechelt's contract backhoe, grader and  truck services defended increases  in his hourly rates of up to 20  percent at last Wednesday's  village council meeting.  The new 1976 contract was  drawn up after the village advertised in January for applications and bids. Benner was the  only local contractor to answer  the ad and was therefore awarded  a new contract for the third con-.  secutive year. Benner explained  that the rate increases were  justified because over the last  two years he had deliberately  given-the village a break by  agreeing to rates that were considerably below that paid by the  Department of Highways. The  new rates bring the village to the  same levels paid by the provincial  department. Benner explained  that due to increased costs he  was no longer able to give the  village special treatment.  Alderman Morgan Thompson .  was concerned that the new  contract violated federal anti-in  flation guidelines arid had been  drafted for a two year period  instead of the standard one year  term. It was further questioned as  to who had authorized the advert -  isment in .the local papers and a '  search of the minutes of previous  meetings found no approval had  been given.  The   contract   will   likely   be  finalized next week..  village, students will also be making themselves available to perform a number of tasks for Gibsons residents including painting,  cleaning and gardening.  On Saturday of the clean up  week, the date of which will be  designated later, students will  participate in a trash-a-thon in  which each student will solicit  sponsors. Sponsors will make a  financial contribution based on  the amount of garbage the student picks up in the village.  A gavel sale and public auction  is planned for the Saturday evening of that week.  At last week's council meeting,  Aid. Jim Metzler suggested that  the village buy a number of  brooms for the students, that they  can then use to clean up what he  termed our "filthy" streets. For  this work, the students would  then receive a cash donation.  A date for the clean up week  will be announced shortly.

Robert Duns-  muir had been drawn to this small  northern Vancouver Island settlement at the instigation of his  uncle, Boyd Gilmour who was  . working as an independent coal  prospector under license to the  Hudson's Bay: Co. They spent the  next two years slowly.searching  the rugged northern island before  finally giving up and moving to  tjie new  H.B.C.  settlement  at  Nanaimo. Gilmour soon decided  to return to Scotland, but Robert7  Dunsmuir kept on working and  finally the family began to pros-  per as a few small seams were  brought into production.  i In 1869 Robert Dunsmuir disr,  (jovered the rich Wellington Mine  and the poor Aryshire coal miner  suddenly became one of the richest men in the Colony of British  Columbia.  y There are few success stories  that match that of the Dunsmuir  family. Robert Dunsmuir laid the  foundation for an empire that his  sons James and Alexander were  later to build.  r.       ���     ���, ''.'���* '������  '. James Dunsmuir first entered  his father's business shortly after  the discovery of the Welungton ,  Mine in 1869 but later he decided  to further his education at the  Wesleyan Institute in Dundas,  Ontario and the Hamilton Academy in Virginia, where he met  and in 1876 married Laura Surles  a native of. North Carolina. When  they returned to B.C. shortly after  their marriage they found that the  family business had grown tremendously since the opening of  the new mine and that his father  had built the young couple a costly new house called "Ardoon" at  Departure Bay.  Robert Dunsmuir had long  been interested in politics and in  1882 he finally decided to stand  for legislature and when he won,  much of the responsibility for the  family business was transferred  to James. The careful management and the modern methods  that he introduced into the running of the mines soon raised the  daily output from 30 to 1500 tons.  His brother Alexander Dunsmuir  was given responsibility for the  San Fransisco offices of the company and when Robert Dunsmuir  later entered the cabinet of Premier Alexander E.B: Davie the  sons took over still more of their  father's duties.  ;" Through  the   long   years   of  struggle and poverty Robert and  Joan Dunsmuir had dreamed of  the day when they could afford to  build a castle with all the trim  mings. Craigdarrock mansion was  not finished until after Robert's  death in 1877 but his wife lived  out the rest' of her life in the  "dreani castle" they had worked  so hard to build.  In 1896 the Dunsmuir empire  was formally incorporated and  James and Alexander purchased  the interests of their mother and  sisters for three million dollars.  The Dunsmuir sons were now  very wealthy men and they soon  became the leaders of Victoria  and San Francisco society. James  built the elegant "Burlieth" in  Victoria,, and Alexander created  the remarkable "Southern  -Farms'* in Oakland at a cost of  over $200,000.  The poor miner's family from  Scotland had indeed found their  fortune in the colonies.  It was only natural that James  Dunsmuir should drift into the  political arena. In 1898 he was finally convinced to stand for legislature and was duly elected by the  Comox district. He supported the  government of J. H. Turner and  when it was dismissed by Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes he refused to back the new Premier,  Charles Semlin. During this first  session he was quite content to  remain a back-bencher . and  showed little ambition to pursue  a political career. When he ber  came Premier in 1900 it was  merely because there was no one  UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA  SPECIAL SERVICES  FOR  HOLY WEEK  Maundy Thursday:  ' *. ���  Special Celebration of '  The Lord's Supper  Gibsons United Church Christian Education Hall  at6:30sharp  Good Friday Service:  in Gibsons Church at 7:30 p.m.  **^*s; if^*^ -rttrv-iT  >*h>-**- V^+^iO&Aiefimgi, ^ mfc^-u&i*%*&*vs%it  Easter Sunday:  St. John's (Davis Bay) ��� 9:30 a.m.  Gibsons ���11:15 a.m.  The Honorable James Dunsmuir  PENINSULA CLEANERS  WILL BE CLOSED ON  fWf C*��WT t*Ti ~^-\m**&"sr-*-+>.<'\-  MONDAYS  '[������)   FROM APRIL 12 ONWARDS  R.

The j6b  fell to the inexperienced Dunsmuir strictly by default,  1900 was an ominous year for  , the Dunsmuirs, the death of Alexander at the age of 46 created  family quarrels because his will  left  everything to  his  brother  James. The rest of the family took  this slight seriously'and it was  1906 before  the  courts finally  awarded the money to James.  ,,The feud between him and his  mother never really ended.  James. Dunsmuir took office as  B.C.'s 13th Premier on June 10,  1900 and immediately named his  old friend J. H; Turner as Minister of Finance and a young Richard McBride was given the Mines  portfolio though he later resigned  over the appointment of J.  C.  Brown as  Provincial Secretary.  The Dunsmuir'government once  ( again brought out the "Better  Terms of Confederation" issue,  claiming that B.C.-was paying  out more than it's share of federal  costs and they also initiated the  , Redistribution BUI of 1902 which  finally gave the mainland a fair  share of the  legislative  seats. .  Dunsmuir was doing a job which  he didn't enjoy and it showed. He  was not a politician and by1902  he had finally decided to resign in  favour of E. G. Prior. Dunsmuir  had been an unfortunate choice  for Premier, he was a quiet, taciturn businessman who was not  overly concerned with, speeches  and public functions.  It was probably the potential  threat to his business by the  rapidly encroaching trade union  movement that finally made up  i Dunsmuir's mind to return to private life. The.Western Federation  of Miners from the united States  was ' infiltrating Nanaimo and  when shortly after leaving office  he found it necessary to lock out  his employees he claimed that he  would never recognize the union  and that he would rather "keep  the mines closed for years."  In 1906 he was offered the position of Lieutenant-Governor and  . eventually accepted the appointment largely, to gratify his wife's  ;,social ambitions. ,He found ,it,a  rduTicult, and. tedious ,jot>/vand  . <though he showed little reaction,  he was the target of much criticism for his refusal to recognize  the unions and his support of importation of Chinese labor. His  coal empire was plagued with  problems and once again he decided to resign. In 1909 he returned to private life and never  again held publicoffice.  James Dunsmuir was by now  an extremely wealthy man. He  had a sizeable country'estate, a  beautiful 50 room mansion home  near Victoria called Hatley Park,  a 218 foot yacht the "Dolaura"  worth over $200,000. and a family  of eight daughters and two sons.  The second son, James Jr. had  joined the army on the eve of  World War One and unfortunately sailed aboard the ill fated  "Lusitania". James Dunsmuir Jr.  had been his father's pride and  joy and his death seems to have  greatly affected the last few years  of James Dunsmuir's life. He became a lonely and quiet man who  was miserly with-his money and  was given to long solitary trips  aboard the family yacht. When  James Dunsmuir died at Cowi-  chan in 1920 he was by far the  richest, though perhaps not the .  happiest man in B. C.

The local Health Inspector,  John Mullineux has been unable  to cope with the regular duties in  the last few weeks and it has  recently been necessary to bring  in additional help from Powell  River and Squamish. The trustees  saw fit to send a delegation last  week as the situation had become  completely intolerable.  Council will further discuss the  problem after Alderman Shuttle-  worth returns from the meeting.  Shuttleworth stated on Sunday  afternoon that he was pleased  with the results of his Victoria  trip and hopeful that an aux-  ilary inspector would be appointed as a temporary measure.

Burkinshaw  Crown Life Insurance Co.  Telephone 385-9756  500 International House  880 Douglas St.  Victoria, B.C.  <~>   #*{   , -%#>*"��,-  Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster have often turned down  offers to perform in the U,S. for great gobs of money, but they  prefer to live and work at home, mainly on CBC television. You  might say they're available only in Canada and since they have  entertained Canadians for more than 30 years they are  certainly not your average comedy team.  Aid. Jim Metzler recommended that $6,000 be paid to Coast  Paving for work completed at the  Gibsons-Sechelt airport. The  money is a progress payment for  paving done last year, paving  of the ramp is being completed  this spring. The village will be  reimbursed by the federal government which is financially  responsible for the paving  project. ,  New floats will be installed at  Armour's Beach. The floats are  being built under an LIP program  and Aid. Jim Metzler suggested  the program also include a  general clean-up of Armour's  Beach.  West Gibsons Heights Ratepayers have requested that the  village portion of Gower Point  Road around the Gospel Rock  area be widened. Aid. Bill  Lang noted that the improvement  is a cost sharing project between  the village and the provincial  highways department. He said  council has already approached  the department to set up a  meeting to discuss the project.  Gibsons mayor and aldermen  1 received  a ten . percent   raise.  Bylaw No. 289, Council Indemnity  Bylaw, was given first reading  last week.  This brings the Mayor's annual  salary up to $2630 and Adermen's  up to $1490.  The village recieved a total of  $2587.46 from the provincial  Community ' Recreation Fund  for the new tennis courts at  Elphinstone Secondary. The  tennis courts are finished and the  money will be forwarded to the  school .which was responsible  for the building of the courts.  A Gibsons businessman has  protested the increase in his  business license. E.R. Mulcaster  of Gibsons Lanes said his business license was $50. last year  and $120. this year. He feels the  140 percent increase is unrealistic.  Council will discuss this matter  further in a finance committee  meeting.  Aid. Bill Laing reported  to council that paving of Highway  101 within the village will commence April 20. The village  works crew is presently installing  new sewer lines along the highway. The village' is concentrating manpower on the sewage  project so that it will be- completed before paving begins.  Council has accepted a bid from  a Vancouver Steel Company  for fencing and gates for the new  municipal works yard, the dog  pound and the water reservoir.  The bid. is valued at $11,715  which council considered extremely low. Other bids for the project  ranged up to $15,000.  Council will support the Sunshine Coast Resource Society  in a bid to the provincial government to maintain funding  for various projects. The government earlier announced that  some of the funding to community  resource boards and societies  would be terminated.  The Highways Department has  refused to cover an over expenditure on maintainance and capital  construction on North Road and  Gower Point "Road. The projects,  jointly funded- by the province  and the village, went over budget  but the highways department  states in a letter to the village  that funds for this type of work  had already been committed  and the extra cost could not be  absorbed.  The extra costs will be paid by  the village.  The Provincial Government  Forest Service has informed  Gibsons council that 1700 trees  are ready for pick-up. The trees  were purchased earlier by the  provincial government for  Habitat but because of lack  of federal government -participation the trees will go to  various municipalities rather  than Habitat. The regional district will be getting 2300 trees and  Sechelt will get 1000.  r,ic#ccto  "DON'T SHOW ANY FAVORITISM OR YOU'LL HAVE A BIG  FIGHT ON YOUR HANDS."
