The building, opposite the Medical Clinic, was set alight about  7:45 p.m. and was soon a mass  of flames.  The interesting part of the fire  concerned the protective measures the firemen took, keeping  the blaze down when required.  A new wrinkle known as a wall  of water was set up on the School  road side, protecting overhead  wires and wetting down . the  ground. This spray fans out putting a wall of water straight up  covering a front of about 25 feet.  Photographers were busy taking shots of the flames at their  best. The old home which according  to   oldtimers  was  built  in the early 1940s had a che'quer-  ed~ career. The first building,  smaller than the one destroyed,  was in turn a real estate office,  an L. S. Jackson' butcher shop  andxa dentist abode for a"-while.  Earlier and before the building  had been erected by Ernie Buckingham, a real estate office held  down the corner.  When the large Corbett family occupied it it was enlarged  with a windowed verandah which  increased the appearance of size.  In later years it lay derelict and  Charles Mandelkau of the Shell  Service Station after considerable negotiation with seven members of the family was able to  purchase it. Mr. Mandelkau  plans to use it for the time being as a parking lot.      -  *  Only 7 interested  It was apparent that the residents of Roberts Creek Wouldn't  care less about using a sum in  and for those who drive past, and  there include tourists and visitors in buses, the one-time centre  could use a face-lifting and general tidying-up.

Wallace,     who    is  ^chairman of that committee. He  .-has assured me that his board  would   consider  such  a  project  favorably.  ,i l' am perfectly aware that  some communities have already  decided on1 some* very worthwhile projects. Good luck to  them. But there are smaller communities who are at a loss as to  what to undertake. The amount  of cash they would raise through  . the per capita    provincial    and  according to two of the seven at-   federal  grants,   plus  their  own  sloot, observer, pet keeper and  house orderly.^ For 1st Wilson  Creek boys badges were presented Barry West for house orderly  and Allan Goodwin, petkeeper.  Leaping Wolf badges were presented to Michael Jackson and  Grant Furuya.  Sechelt Scout Bob Hayes obtained his swimmer and entertainer badge; Garry Newton,  marksman and entertainer and  Rickey Eldred, entertainer. Bob  James earned his assistant Cubmaster badge and Michael Toynbee his assistant Scoutmaster  plume.  The dinner which was prepared, and served by^ the mothers  of the scouts was to say the least  tends from the cemetery to Tyson Road, one side of the road  being in Wilson Creek and the  other in Roberts Creek, and contains several communities. Many  of its residents never set foot on  what was once the Roberts Creek  centre.  For those who do, and there  are. many within walking distance of the store and post office,  the meeting.  Two were interested in the  housing^ scheme for senior citizens, two in Brothers' Park. Several ideas were discussed. Where  the. members were not decided  upon what they really wanted,  they were definitely firm in their  convictions as to what they did  -not want. , ���-:  It was decided to contact the  residents by mail and to call another meeting for March 29.

Were those  groups who have not settled on  a final project willing to throw  in, their cash potentiality with  that of other groups, we might  have a sum that would really  help us to realize our project.  From data I have gathered'to  date, .1 figure that it would cost  vs $75,000 to build one' large  eight apartment building suitable  for single persons or couples.

A letter from C. Dudley Twee-  dale one of the property owners  involved writes: "The government has expropriated my property at the Soames Creek corner. We want to let our many  friends know we shall miss their  company: Although we have  been summer residents for over  16 years we have always felt at  home there and have enjoyed  the life of the Sunshine Coast.  "We shall- certainly miss fish-  ,    ,       ...        ��  -ing'at-the Rock and the friendly  Thousands   took   advantage   of-.  visits .to pisher's store.  It was  enjoy  it  as   much   as  we  have  Granthams."  Two other properties are reported to be involved in the  straightening out of the highway  at the bridge, the Hoag and  Flook homes and these are also  in the scheme for improving  the roadway.  Booth attracts  the Sunshine Coast, information  booth at the increasingly popular annual B.C. Sportsmans Show  Meld at the P.N.

Butler Realty were  on hand at all times answering  a personal loss to my family to  have ^ to give up the place- but  one .cannot stop progress and if  "by ^having "the-'place-, taken from  us makes it safer for everyone  using the road then I have no  complaints.  -'We have purchased 16 acres  :on Galiano Island with waterfrontage between  Gossip Island  COLLEENS BUSY  The colleens are busy baking.

There will be a meeting of /persons interested in establishing a  museum in this area, Monday,  March 15, -starting at 8 p.m. in  the Public Library building. All  . .   ..       uuuiug-  ,-_..��,.~v._.  ^.,...��_. __     interested "persons are invited to  questions   and  handing   out   tne    an<_..Lion Islets and hope we will     attend and express their views,  various brochures and maps of  the area. Prominently displayed  were a fine collection of photographs covering the whole area  and loaned for the occasion by  the Dennis Gray Studios of Sechelt, Mr. Eric Thomson of Hopkins Landing and Coast News,  Gibsons.  How would we finance such a  project?  First, a society would.have to  be incorporated under the Provincial Government Elderly Citizens Housing Aid Act. This society would be similar, to the  St. Mary's' Hospital society, and  any and everybody , is .^eligible  for membership. The -society  would elect its governing board,  and from then on that board  would be responsible for the raising of the money required, and  later for the management of the  homes.  Towards the suggested sum of  $75,000 we would ' receive one-  third from the provincial government. The federal government  does not make grants to_ such  institutions. ToV_a_Hs .Imbalance ���  of $50,000 we would have a possible total of Centennial funds  of say, $10,000 based on .3,500  people who might get behind this  particular project. That is a little more than half the estimated  population submitted to us by  Mr. Wallace and his general  committee.  These figures are only guesses  at the final ones, but they will  serve as a guide to many as  they ask questions.  That leaves $40,000 to be raised.  I have been informed that the  federal Central. Mortgage . and  Housing corporation is ready to  loan funds for such projects on  long term payments.v In Powell  River, they built centennial  1 units of the type I have mentioned  with  local   contributions,  and -a loan from the C.M.H.C.  Through the .small excess - of  rental revenue each year over  operating costs, ,they have now  almost wiped out the whole debt.  Who would be eligible for residence in such homes? That  would rest .with the administrative board. Each case would be  considered on its "merits. The  Act   says   that  all   persons   re  quiring  such     accommodation  may not have an income greater  than $138.60 per month. This  figure includes old age pension  and social assistance grant. Out  of that income, reasonable rental  rates would be taken by the society, leaving ample for the residents to pay costs such as food,  light and heat.  This as not a boarding house  plan. Each resident must be  able to look after himself. They  simply become tenants ,.renting  so much living accommodation.  No domestic staff therefore is  needed to run the place. It is  not a nursing home. When the  guest becomes ill, he simply  seeks admission through his doc-  Dream foretells  John Simpkins, aged 15, who  was chewed up somewhat by a  cougar while working on the  James Baker ranch at Loon  Lake, is the son of Mr. and Mrs.  Alex R. Simpkins of Davis Bay.  Mrs. Simpkins reports the. attack by the cougar occurred Friday, March 5.  Mrs. Simpkins also said that on  tlie Friday night of the day of  the mauling, she dreamed about  the boy and in the dream he was  lying in hospital. She worried  about him all that day. She did  not know anything of the attack  by the cougar until friends ��� informed her Jt^was.being carried  by radio stations.  ,  CofC meeting  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce  March meeting falls on Monday,  March 15 at Danny's Dining  Room starting at 7 p.m. Mr. A.  Thiesson, director of the recreation branch at New Westminster  will be the speaker. The public  is invited to hear TVIr.

Coming events for Friday,  March 19 starting at 7 p.m. will  be aimed at encouraging graduates from 1912 to 1964 to attend.  Starting at 7 p.m. there will  be a tour of the school, a basket-  tor to the hospital.  This raises the point of location."  ��� The "society could explore the  possibility* of' a . suitable site  within reasonable distance of the  hospital. They would also keep  in mind , recreational facilities  and . the problem of nearby  stores.' The v site purchased  should be chosen with a -view  to enlargement of the plan as  the need' grew. - '  I have no figures as to the  present number of elderly folk  who would wish to live in such  a home but - our doctors, field  nurses and social workers have  assured me-tbat there is a real  need for such - accommodation.  That again ,would be one of the  jobs to be/,undertaken by the  society, but I, think we are all  agreed that there is a very, pressing! need for,-such homes'.  May I ask'therefore that each  Centennial committee place this  project'on. their list as number  one for the consideration of their  fellow'Citizens.  >YOur i Centennial chairmen are  meeting on March 24th to discuss v the whole matter again,  and'^.they' .will probably bring  wit-V'themAlists showing the ob-  jects.vjto.wards which each Area  Group' isy ready, to give its support:" '"',, \   '   '.'.

Mrs. M. Hately was asked  to be recording secretary for the  meeting. President Mark Myers  expressed disappointment at the  small number of members who  attend the general meeting each  year.  From the business of last year's  meeting, the- C. U. & C. group  health plan was again discussed  at some length but it was disclosed ��� there were not enough  names, 35 being needed to form  a group. Further information is  to be gathered.  'Mark Myers presented the  board of directors' report which  showed the year 1964 was most  gratifying. Having the services  of the secretary-treasurer unbro  ken for the entire year,1 coupled  with the change from manual to  machine accounting, and' the  move to new' business premises  made the oper'ation much more  efficient.  According to the Credit Union  Act, members, in order to be in  good standing, are expected to  purchase a minimum of one  share per year up to a maximum  of five years.  The board recommends a  share dividend of 4% and a patronage refund of 5% on interest  paid by borrowers. The assessment of $1 membership was not  levied, as'was done in the past  two years.  G. M. Liddle presented the  Treasurer's report, explaining all  figures quite fully. Total income  of $11,898.33; expenses $7,287.76.  The chequing account takes a  considerable amount of the treas  urer's time, having processed  4,000 cheques on the old scheme  and 1,780 under prepaid chequing service.  Mrs. J. Benjafield reported for  the supervisory committee the  books and records of, the Pender  Harbour Credit Union are in excellent order.   ,'.���'  Report of credit committee was  presented by Bill Cameron. In  1964, 83 loans were made totalling $53,906.37. Since incorporation a total of 1,327 loans amounting to $613,068.  A motion was passed to reinstate the yearly $1 membership  fee for adult members. This is  mandatory under the Credit Union Act, schedule 2, section 9.  An education committee is to  be set up, one purpose for a  school savings plan, to instil savings by students. The question of  the bursary was raised. One $100  bursary was paid in 1963, but  none in 1964. A suggestion was  put forth for the education committee to consider a bursary  again.  Guest speaker was Mr. Mc-  Ewan who outlined what members receive for the $1 membership fee, which also includes the  B.C. Credit Unionist magazine  which costs 50c per year He also  pointed to the many advantages  of borrowing through Credit Unions as compared to finance companies. All Credit Union loans  are insured.  An interesting film, People of  Koleohu' was shown.    >v  Results of the election of three  directors were: J. Edmunds and  R. Mair, three year term; J. Di-  vall, 1 year. Supervisory committee, Mrs. E. Scoular, 1 year.  Coffee and refreshments  brought the meeting to a close.  mediate plans call for the' completion of three single accommodations on the upper floor with  the others remaining as shells  until completion.  A letter will be sent to' the'  minister of education as the result of council's consideration of  a copy of a telegram which was  supplied by the school board.  This telegram urged a more  equitable cost of sharing education, between the taxpayer and  the government. Council offered  its support.  It was announced that the tag  day planned by St. Mary's Hospital Sechelt auxiliary which was  dated earlier for March will not  take place until May. Hackett  Park will be reserved for school  sports on either May 29 or June  5.  The matter of caterers from  outside when catering for events  in Sechelt having a Sechelt business license resulted in Councillor Joe Benner going on record  as voting no when a motion was  passed asking that the Winning  Post at Ole's Cove be billed for  a license because it catered for  the Chamber of Commerce dinner.  Council learned that the Kinsmen, club was awaiting a reply  from Norman Burley covering a  complete explanation of the arrangement allowing the use of a  portion of his property as a park  with tables, water, benches and  sanitary equipment. 2      Coar* News, March 11, 1965.  y I 2E0 Unseen Audience?   - y  A WEBSTER CLASSIC  /^fftlSlS UK6^ PRESCRIPT/ON >&U*.

"        -    ���' **  Time for improvement  In one of the recent Al Lloyd publications issued at Pender Harbor a complaint was made about having to attend magistrate's court  in Sechelt, particularly when there is an appointed magistrate living in Pender Harbor area.  The complaint as registered did not think too highly of the 50  mile return trip to and from Pender Harbor. The same could be  said of Gibsons and Port Mellon. For Port Mellon people it is a 50  mile return, trip and for Gibsons people a 30 or so mile return trip.  Population in the area is growing along with the increased use  of the present sitting magistrate in other areas. This cuts down the  ���time available for arranging court for this region. As a result Saturday appears to be-the only day court is held. It is true that most  of the cases are minor in nature, which is fortunate for the area  and the people involved in holding court, ,the magistrate and the  RCMP.  ..'.���������*.  Courts can be set up wherever the magistrate decides to sit and  there is no reason why the area should not now have a magistrate  either of a travelling type within the district or have magistrates  say in three areas, Pender Harbor, Sechelt and Gibsons. There is  no desire here to be critical of Magistrate Johnston's activities as  magistrate. He has been moving about to fill vacancies on the bench  at other points. However that does not help the situation along this  coastline. Perhaps something will be done about it before long.  Multilingual money?  In the' Laurendeau-Dunton report on bilingualism an interesting  comment was produced by someone on the prairjes. Here is what  he said to the commission during one of the hearings:  "As time goes on there will be fewer and fewer people who will  be purely French-speaking and more and more people will be English-  speaking. Quebec is not only a part of Canada, it is also a part of  the North American economy and there is a tide flowing that economically will force them to become increasingly industrialized in  that province and have a knowledge, and a good knowledge of the  language of commerce. That language of commerce I think we will  have to admit, will be English in the North American economy."  There is a lot of sense in the above. One can not visualize Quebec chasing the dollar on a purely cultural basis. There will have to  be some sordid commercialism involved and on behalf of the French  in Quebec, the sooner the better. Money speaks in a language that  all nations understand. ���  ���_.  Memo for speakers  Attending meetings and hearing people speak on a multiple of  subjects does raise habits in the mind of the individual who has the  job of reporting what the speaker is laboring to explain.  Sometimes the speaker is well-versed in his topic. Other times  he or she is just filling out time with words that appear to be applicable. The average speaker is mostly like a boxer who telegraphs  his punches.  This brings to mind the story of a judge and a court reporter.  The judge noted the court reporter was acting somewhat lackadaisical so he stopped his remarks to the jury to inquire of the court  reporter whether he was getting his words down correctly. "Sure  judge," was the reply, "I'm about 15 words ahead of you right now."  This happens quite often with some speakers.  *  *  *  People, it has been said, can be placed in three classes: the few  who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and  the over-whelming majority who have no idea what has happened..  ���Nicholas Murray Butler  III YEARS 11,11  MARCH   11  John Haddock has opened a  new machine shop at Madeira  Park. His wife and son Albert  have arrived to join him.  Sechelt Improvement association meeting with Sidney McKay  in the chair heard a report on  an interview with Union Estates  officials on the much discussed  water project.

George Frith and Gordon Ballentine are~awaiting the arrival  of a sister ship to the Commuter  which is expected to take care  of increased ferry traffic.  Confederation, the birth of  Canada, took place in 1867. But  the province of British Columbia  was not created until 1871 when  the west coast colony joined the  partnership.  Interest is being shown in this  area in the federal governments'  Agricultural Rehabilitation and  Development Admi nTstration,  which for everyday use, has been  reduced to ARDA. It is under the  jurisdiction of the federal forestry department. Recently Hon.  Maurice Sauve, minister of forestry, in a Montreal address,  said he expected that during this  year's parliamentary sessions  the department will become  known as the department of forestry and rural development.-  In view of what has been done  elsewhere in Canada there is the  possibility of an increasing  awareness as to what can be  done in British Columbia and  particularly on the > Sunshine  Coast.  Reviewing ARDA's first two  years of activity, Mr. Sauve  quoted a total of 598 projects,  involving a total cost of $42,-  367,000 ��� of which the federal  share is $23,191,000.  MINUTE MESSAGE  Positive and negative  "Most of these projects are  now under way," said Mr.  Sauve, "and many have been  completed." He added that the  purpose of the ARDA program,  stated briefly, is "to improve or  alter existing land use, carry out  soil and water conservation, and  improve income and employment opportunities in rural  areas."  ARDA projects to the end of  1964 included 174 for alternate  land use, 177 for soil and water  conservation, 25 rural development projects, 93, joint federal-  provincial research projects ..and  129 federal research and study  projects.  In the Atlantic Provinces, 148  projects are in progress or completed ��� 43 in Newfoundland,  costing $1,288,000; 23 in Prince'  Edward Island, costing $417,000;  50 in Nova Scotia, costing $1,-  223,000; 32 in New Brunswick,  costing $920,000.  project.  Another major   Quebec  Think  positive!  Have you ever heard someone  say that? - We feel great when  a friend pats us on the shoulder  and tells us we are a really swell  guy.. '  But much as we like to emphasize the positive, a realistic  person admits that life consists  of two constantly warring contrasts. There cannot be an east  without a west; there is no right  unless there is a wrong.  The Bible teaches that men,  much as they would like to think  otherwise are "born in sin arid  shapen in iniquity" Psalm 51:5.  It is true that God is love but  he is also just. Men's sin must  be punished as well as good rewarded.. There cannot be a  heaven without a hell.  Romans 6:23 states another  contrast:   "Tlie wages of sin is  death . . . but the gift of God  is eternal life through Jesus  Christ our Lord" Christ spoke  twice as much of hell as heaven.  Psalm 9:17. warns ' -The wicked  shall be turned into hell, and.  all the nations that forgot God."  God does not want to send any  man to hell for He pleads:  "Turn every rnan from his evil  way, that I may repent- me of  the evil which I. purpose to do  unto them because of the evil  of' their doings." Jeremiah 26:3.  Will it be. right or wrong?  Christ or self? Positive or negative? .'; There is no neutral ground  for iri Matthew 12:30 Jesus said  "He that is not with me-(definitely on my side as amplified in  the New Testament) is against-  me." The choice is .ours, the consequence eternal. ��� Pastor J.  Anonby, Pentecostal Tabernacle,  Gibsons.  An opportunity for writers  CBC radio, noting the good response to its 1963 writing competition has announced a second  New Writing Contest for entries  from young authors.  The contest is for original  short stories and poems by  Canadian citizens or permanent  residents under age 35. The winner in each category will receive $500. Contest closes May  31, 1965.  Broadcasting of contest entries  on the CBC radio network will  start in July and will run 13  weeks.  The final winners in last year's  competition were two Montreal  writers, short story author C. J.  Newman, and poet Leonard  Cohen. Each received $500 for  their works, which were judged  best in their respective categories from nearly 1,000 submissions by some.900 writers across  Canada.  Rules for the New Writing  Contest: Manuscripts should be  submitted in three typewritten  copies to: New Writing Contest,  CBC, Box 500, Terminal "A",  Toronto,  Ontario.  Short stories and poems must  be original, unpublished work.  Short stories should be between   approximately   2,500  and  4,400 words in length. Any number of poems may be submitted  by one author but the CBC reserves the right to select a'group  from among them for broadcast.  Writers must be prepared to  prove they are under 35 years  of age as of May 31, 1965.  . Writers wishing manuscripts  returned should include a stamped self addressed envelope.

'  COMMONEST FUR-BEARERS  The white-footed mouse and its  cousin the deer mouse are the  commonest fur-bearing animals  in Canada's forests. Because of  their noctural habits, we rarely  encounter them but from dawn  to dusk the woods are fairly alive  with them scurrying about in  search of seeds and insects. The  whitefoot does not hibernate, but  remainsN'active all through the  winter, living on seeds stored  during the warmer months. Their  tracks, like tiny rabbit spoor,  will often be seen on snowy  stretches wheri day breaks over  the forest clearing.  project,  valued at $1,260,000,  is  ARDA projects in Quebec totalled 144, at a-cost of $10,815,000;  those in Ontario    -number    37,  costing $4,568,000. A total of 203  projects were approved for the  Prairie   Provinces���60  in   Manitoba at a cost of $5,269,000;  108  in   Saskatchewan,   costing   $11,-'  208,000;   35   in  Alberta,   costing  $4,676,000.   There   were   25   projects   approved  for   British  Columbia for a total cost of $1,-  078,000.  In addition to these cost-shared projects, a further 41 were  under-taken directly by the federal government, at a total cost  of $1,105,000.  Under ARDA, each province  initiates and carries out its own  projects,, with federal financial  and sometimes technical assistance. Emphasis on the type of  projects varies between provinces, according to their needs.  For example, Saskatchewan has  concentrated on community pastures, with a total bf 59 in process of development. The .Newfoundland ARDA program has  consisted chiefly of research  work, with 38 such projects under way or completed. While  Quebec has had a diversified  program, the emphasis is on improvement of watercourses, to  improve and increase- the arable  land, on many hundreds of farms.  A Quebec project of special interest at this early stage of  ARDA's development is one of  detailed research into economic  and social conditions in the  Gaspe region, being carried out  by the Bureau d'amenagement  de Test du Quebec. To date, $2,-  470,500 of federal - provincial  funds has been allotted to this  designed, to provide heavy, motorized machinery for improvement of various farm lands',in  the province. And in Saskatchewan, a $200,000 project has been  organized to study social and  economic conditions in Census  Division 16, north and west of  Saskatoon. This project is being  carried out under contract' by  the Centre for Community  Studies at the University of Saskatchewan.  All ARDA projects to date are  being carried out under the federal - provincial ARDA,General  Agreement, signed between the  federal government and each pro  vince in the fall of 1962. A new  agreement, to. cover the period  from 1965 to 1970, is currently  being discussed. Under this new  agreement the federal government has agreed to provide $25,-  000,000 per year^plus a $50,000,-  000 special - projects fund over  the whole term of the agreement.

(By TONY GARGRAVE, M.I..A.,  Mackenzie Consituency.)  The Canada Pension' Plan is  very . much in., the news these  days. This,is the federal scheme  ; which will .provide Canadians  with a  contributory pension- or-  '���_ ganized arid ^administered ,by the  federal government.  Of  equal   importance   to   millions of Canadians is his private  pension plan. Bankers, industrial  < workers; union employees,\ postal  workers,  department  store- .emy  . ployees. and..: policemen ": cdntri-'  bute. to ^pension plans in every  'province in Canada. We regulate  ' insurance ,'. companies,     banks,  trust companies,  lawyers'  trust  funds,  but  except for -the  pro-  _ vince of {Ontario there, is no legislation in Canada;.: whjch    lays  down ground rules" for the private pension plan.  The   regulator,  of   private   pensions   is   a  ^provincial responsibility:  vy A: worker  niay!. be   employed  for 25 years for one, particular  company which then goes bankrupt, arid he finds when.he consults his lawyer" that he has no  contractual rights for a pension  at all. His only right may be to,  ��� receive, his   contributions   back;  with or without interest. If it is  a   non-contributory   pension,   he  may : have no rights whatsoever,  eyen  though  he  stayed   at  his  job   on  the  understanding  that  he would receive a pension;  I have; known cases in which  a small company- has merged .  ;.���. witht a larger company, and the  large company says, "you made  no . contract with: us, and we  have no responsibility to pay  this pension to you."  Last Tuesday, I placed on the  order paper, a resolution which  asked the house to refer the subject of private pension plans to  the select standing committee on  social welfare and education:  Private pension plans affect Pa J  large number of people. They  affect the employer,; the employee, the union who often bargains for pension rights and^at-  ' tempts to police pension plans,  trust companies who often man  age these plans and-insurance  companies who offer package  plans particularly to small companies.  Beneficiaries under pension  plans often have no idea where  their funds are invested, who  manages the fund, and whether  it is solvent.  The first immediate problem  to an employee when he goes  to work for a company is "Am  I eligible to enter the pension  plan?" Sometimes the plan is  for the benefit of the upper echelon employees only, sometimes  the employee js forced to join  the plan as a condition of his  employment. XHe would then  worry about solvency arid whether his money was "safely invested at the best possible rates,  compatible with safety.  The employee would then want  to know whether his rights under the plan were safe. In other  words, if he was fired would he  lose his pension; If he, changes  his job can he take his pension  with him. We all know the jokes  about the railway conductor'or  aged clerk who hates his job but  is afraid to move because of his  pension.,-  All these above points and  others I have incorporated in my  resolution so that the subject  can be thoroughly canvassed by  pension trustees,.- beneficiaries  and investment experts. The purpose of the resolution is to conduct a thorough enquiry giving  all parties the opportunity to be  heard with the object of eventually drafting legislation which is  fair to all parties concerned but  is workable. Hardly a person in  the province is unaffected.  At one time a family's"; most  important asset .was the family  home; but now the most important' family asset is the breadwinner's pension.  Cash income of Canadian farmers reached a record $1.6 billion  in the first six months of 1964,  greater by 13 percent than 1963's  preceding record. helf-year high.  iT^ftWL-^  _t4Uj  H4  970���CREATE A ROSE GARDEN with a bedspread of 6-to-the-inch  cross-stitch roses and buds.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  When parliament reconvened,  Finance Minister Gordon made  an- important announcement.  Coritrol, over* banking, he said,  must remain in Ottawa's hands.  The provinces must not entei*  this.field and the Bank Act will  . shortly be amended making it  impossible for them to do so.  Mr. Gordon told a hushed  bouse of comirions that the proposed amendment will prevent a  provincial government from buying shares which have voting  rights; Premier Bennett, in other  words, can still buy certain  kinds of shares. But he will no  longer be in*a position to appoint directors and control the  lending policy of a bank with  its headquarters in British Columbia.  Canada's minister of finance  was on firm ground. Our constitution clearly states that control over money and banking  rests with the nation. The provinces, separately or collectively, cannot print money. Nor can  DAVIS INTERESTED  Jack Davis, Coast _- Capilano  M.P. has written Walt Nygren,  chairman of Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce' marine committee  working on a brief, for the federal authorities on the breakwater and harbor improvements,  that he has noticed mention of  the brief in the Coast News as  outlined before Gibsons council,  and has offered any assistance he  can give towards its presentation.

Private companies can, do so.  But they must obey a federal  law. Provincial governments, on  the other hand, are in a special  position relative to Ottawa. They  cannot be told what to do. It  would take months to disallow  . each move in the courts. And,  with the best will in the world,  a federal-provincial conference  would have to be held every  time a change in financial policy  was indicated for the country as  ,a whole.  Mr. Gordon said that once the  provinces had their own banks  there would be confusion as to  which level of government had  the last word in banking matters. To avoid this danger, he  announced that henceforth no  shares of a charter or savings  bank may be registered in the  name of any government or its  agents.  Concentration. of ownership in  other hands is also frowned  upon. The Bank Act will soon  place an upper limit of 10% on  the shares of any. bank which  can be held,' directly or indirectly, by a single shareholder. In  other   words,   ownership,, which  still rests largely with small  shareholders, will continue to be  widely dispersed.  Mr. Gordon obviously favors  greater competition amongst our  lending agencies. To this end he  hoped that current legislation  setting up a Bank of Western  Canada, with headquarters in  Winnipeg and the Laurentide  Bank, with headquarters in Vancouver would soon be passed by  the house of commons.  Most Conservative M.P.'s  agree with Mr. Gordon. Social  Credit and Creditistes M.P.'s,  on the other hand listened in  stoney. silence. They still want  Mr. Bennett to get his bank. The  New Democratic Party is divided. Some support Mr. Strachan's  idea that each, province -should  have its own bank: Others  among the NDP believe in-planning on a national scale. They  have serious misgivings about  Quebec, for instance, being allowed to go its own way insofar  as banks and, monetary policy"  are concerned.  I, personally, want to see an  expansion of bur money supply.  I am also in favor of more-  banks and lower interest rates.

Sea Scouts  next move  Scouting and cubbing is really  forging ahead in the Elphinstone  group these days and compared  with this time last year the enthusiasm is riding high. This  time'last year there was a lack  of leaders and those who struggled along" manfully then are  now seeing the results of their  efforts.  A sea Scout troop will become  a reality in the near future and  the whaler which has been purchased through a generous supporter of the movement, will be  invaluable in the training of  boys in seamanship and camaraderie.  Boxing and pistol . shooting  have been introduced in Gibsons  and these activities are expected  to keep the boys edging towards  further advancement in the  ranks of Scouting. The four  Queen Scouts at Port Mellon are  now in turn helping to train  younger Scouts.    v  It didn't take long for people  to   recognize   the .advantage   of  the' electric  light bulb when it  was  first' introduced.   Within   a  short time,  people were replacing their oil lamps with the convenience and cleanliness of electricity. Electric living has ,come  a  long  way   since  those  early  days. Now we see the all-electric  home as a new way of life. Many-  people are already enjoying the  comfort and convenience of living in an all-electric Gold Medallion home. Still others are looking  into the   possibilities." What  about you? Could an all-electric  home be the answer to the convenience, flexibility and comfort  you've   been   looking   for  in   a  home? Let's take a look at electric heating ��� a very important  part and significant of the joys  of living in an all-electric home.  Maintenance ��� Aside from the  total convenience, flexibility and  comfort derived from electric  heating is probably the feature  that pleases users most. Electric  heating is practically maintenance free. With most units, there  are no rotating parts to wear  out, no filters to replace, no  cleaning or adjustments to make.  Properly installed electric equipment can last the lifetime of the  home with little, if any repairs.  Operating Costs ��� The cost of  operatingy an electric, heating  systent was once a consideration,; but the new all-electric  rates have cut the cost of. electric heating' by 20 percent. To- .  day electric heating costs little  if anything more than other auto-,  matic systems.  When the advantages and costs  are compared with other heating ,  systems, most people find that  electric heating is a wise invest  ment.. If you. are  interested in  learning '��� more    about - ielectric  heating call your.  B.C.    Hydro  Office. Homeowners are" invited -.  to contact -B.C. /Hydro's Heating  Advisory Service regarding mies-  .  tions   on   automatic   heating., A  new pamphlet,. Electric Heating  Facts is also available free- of  charge. " ���  There are three areas of cost  to consider: installation; maintenance, and operation. Electric  heating equipment can run a little higher than with other auto-  "���   " - ^  i  matic s systems. For one thing  with, room-by-room temperature  control you need more thermostats.' In a. sense, each room has  its own heating system, regulated by its own thermostat. This  control soon:pays for itself, however in operating economies and  comfort. ���" \   ..  Installation costs, will be, a little ' higher, because in' order to  obtain efficient. operation, the  electrically heated home must be  well-insulated. This investment  too, quickly pays for itself in '  fuel. savings. Extra insulation  also allows the,builder to install  heating units of. a lower heating  capacity, so the initial equipment costs can be reduced. Another factor to consider, when  installing electric heat in a new  home, building costs can be cut:  no chimney-or ductwork is needed, so there is. a saving in building . materials and labor. The  home's design can be simplified  and full use made of all space.  *-*���" ���i\\\\\,.^.\,vv7'.f."-,^\-^Aty,'*-y.'77i'T^  Baseboard Heaters are the popular choice of many homeowners  and contractors. They can be installed economically and quickly,  providing gentle,.even heat.  SUNSHINE COAST TRAILER PARK  1 mile west of Gibsons on Hiway.

The present act controls water  contamination only. The. Gargrave amendment adds the word  air contaminant to the act, whichv  will allow the pollution control  board to determine what qualities and properties of the atmosphere constitutes a polluted condition.  - The amendment would also al- ���  low the board to prescribe standards regarding the quality and  character of the air contaminant  which may be discharged into  the atmosphere and!.order any  person to increase the degree of  treatment of The air contaminant  or to alter the manner or point of  discharge of it.  Another amendment, first moved by the government and Supported by Mr. Gargrave, provides for the appointment of advisory or .technical committees  to advise the board.  "I urge- the citizens to write to  Mr. Ray Williston, Minister of  Water Resources, Parliament  Buildings, Victoria, B.C., supporting the air pollution amendment to Bill 24, An Act to Amend the Pollution-control Act,"  Gargrave said.  Mr. Gargrave said he strongly  disagreed with the provincial gov  ernmeht's view that pollution  control is a municipal matter.'  "Air pollution crosses municipal boundaries. Many industrial  plants are adjacent to muncipali-  ties but outside their boundaries.  Furthermore, Powell River is  prevented from instituting pollu--  tion control - by, the wording of  its special act. One particular  mill should not ,be placed at a  competitive disadvantage with another mill, by one mill being required to eliminate air pollution  and smell at considerable cost,  while another mill is not being  required to do so. This would be  the effect of municipal control,'  he said.  Two matters of interest were  noted at the Parents' Auxiliary ,  meeting at Roberts Creek school  i Monday evening March 1. ��� One,  that, the notices which were sent  to the parents to advise them of  the meeting were- written by a  grade 4 student, Joan Blomgren,  and were as perfectly written as  writing can be, and demonstrated the Italic style presently being taught in the school.  Two, that there were 13 parents present at the meeting.  Since there are 135 children en- .  rolled, this could mean that the -  above parents have large families, or that .there is a lack of  interest in the school.  Mr. A. A. Merling, the school'  principal, spoke about Education Week, and brought up the  subject of Sports Day. To ease  the work of the parents who, in  1 the past, have assisted with the  sports events, he reminded them  that this year he would have as.  aides, four student teachers who  will be at the school for three  weeks. The parents' then would  be free to handle the refreshments. *  /The president of the auxiliary,  Mrs. M. W. MacKenzie, reminded the mothers of last year's  school closing events when they  played baseball with the grades  6 and 7 and suffered defeat in  spite of a few changes of rules  and the sudden left-handedness  of the grade 7 boys. She made  the suggestion that the mothers  this year challenge grade three  to a game. ;  The auxiliary agreed to buy  printed ribbons for the sports  events. They also invited Mr.  Merling to select a plaque for  the school hall on which will be  , engraved annually the name of  either pupil or house who wins  most points in sports.  Mrs.  L.  Flumerfelt agreed to  ' look into the milk situation and  find if it is possible to have milk  delivery  to  the  school  children  at noon.  Priess elected  ��� At the regular meeting / of  Mount Elphinstone Chapter  Order of DeMolay Ken Preiss  was elected ' master councillor  for the next six months.

Mr. Merling demonstarted the  overhead projector, which is a  new and exceptionally valuable  teaching aid.  Only two members of the  auxiliary took advantage of Mr.  C. A. Bedford's invitation" to  visit his home March 1 after the  auxiliary meeting. He had set  out about one tenth of his famous collection of shells and a few  rocks, polished, and some interesting bits of driftwood, in  every available spot in two  rooms.  There were shells so tiny as  to appear as particles of sand  without the aid of a magnifying  glass, and there were others  large enough to make into table  lamps. They came in all shapes,  ages, designs and colors, hundreds cleaned with acid to bring  out their gorgeous blending of  hues and dainty, intricate designs.  It is remarkable that a chance  walk on the beach at Boundary  Bay and the discovery of an interesting shell should have resulted in this collection of over  100,000 shells, the. largest in  Canada and in all probability,  in America. Making the collection, cleaning and displaying it,  cataloguing it, and all the studying it entailed, has been accomplished in 16 years.  Something else which is remarkable "'is the large number  and variety of shells found right  here at Roberts Creek, dozens of  shells that native.Roberts Creek-,  ites do not known exist though  they may have spent years of  summers on the beach beside  them. .

As a  tree increases in diameter, wood  of the main trunk grows out  over the limbs, encasing them.  Knots are the cross-sections of  the encased portions of the  limbs. Live limbs continue to  grow along with the trunk and  form a natural graft, resulting  in tight knots. Loose knots are  formed when the wood grows  around dead limbs.
