 GOLDEN ;CUP AWARD  COFFEE -  at DANNY'S  COFFEE HOUSE &  MOTEL.  Gibsons ��� Ph.  886-9815  Provincilt-I  Library,  Victoria, B�� C.  ' SERVING THE GROWING  SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C.    <        Volume 19, Number 12, March 25, 1965.  7c per copy  Kinsmen offer Paving for Gibsons  comment on  withdrawal  Sechelt's Kinsmen club as the  result of Norman Burley's withdrawal of an, offer of the use of  land for. a park has in a letter  to the Coast News expressed the  thought that "when personalities  and petty politics play , major  roles in everything and anything  that is done in the village, then  it is about time something was  done about it."  Here is,the Kinsmen letter followed by a copy of. the letter Mr.  Burley wrote to the Kinsmen outlining his reasons for withdrawing the offer:  Dear Sir:  . Enclosed you will find a letter written to the Kinsmen Club  of Sechelt. We have full authorization to- publish this letter verbatim and on behalf of the club  I am taking this opportunity to  do so as to my mind it points up  something this community is  lacking ��� community spirit.  When the Kinsmen club thought  of this park project it was in  our opinion everyone from local  residents tb tourists alike would  benefit:; However,' when personalities and petty politics play'  major .roles in everything and  anything that is done in the village then, it is about time something was done about it.  The proposed park was a very  generous offer on the part of  Mr. Burley and he should be  commended for his spirit in trying to better the town. However  through a lack, of knowledge and  an overbearing attitude the, guiding hand of the village has lost  to the community an excellent,  and. may I say, only park area  with good facilities for picnicking  Gibsons street paving for this  year was announced at Tuesday  night's council meeting last week  and will include paving of the  following streets by the H. Williamson Blacktop and Landscape  Ltd.:  Trueman Rd., Cochrane Rd.,  Glassford Rd., Skyline drive,  north and south and Abbs Rd.  Amount involved for this paving  will be $15,000.  Council also ordered that Mo- ���  bile  Stationers  Ltd.   required  a  business .license   before   it   can '  transact business in the village.  Difficulties have arisen in the  operation of Kinsmen park by  the Kinsmen service club which  resulted in considerable discussion by council. The matter arose  when the club sought some relief  in taxation. It was felt that the  club could not carry on its responsibility for the park.  When a steel gate is completed  for the garbage dump the dump  will be closed 'to all except the  contractor appointed by the municipality Who will have the sole  right of entry for the disposal of  garbage.  Museum given name  A nucleus of people who a  short' time ago indicated their  interest' in establishing a' local  museum, met at 8 p.m., March 15  in the Gibsons Library building.  Considerable discussion centred around the legal requirements.  The secretary, Mrs. Bernie Morrison, is currently engaged in  preparing, necessary data for  Earl Dawe, who is handling the  legal aspect of negotiating with  the Registrar of. Societies in  searching possible (h-P^ca^on of  museum name, ' obtaining by-  law~s, constitutions, with intent  to register. The , tentative name  is Elphinstone Pioneer Museum  Society.  Membership of $1 annually was  paid by those present as well as  being submitted by some not in  attendance. Mrs. Lenore Inglis,  treasurer, welcomes ( anyone interested in becoming a member.  Considerable ground "wort has  already been prepared by-the  president. Lester Peterson, in  obtaining from local residents  many pioneer museum pieces.  Others "are retaining certain-articles of value, pending establishment of permanent quarters.

Kinsmen club hope to stir a storm  of controversy and raise people  from their apathy. Then, in my  opinion, we will,be starting on  the road to creating a better  community.  There are too many people in  and .around Sechelt, who sit back  and criticize the efforts of others without contributing anything  themselves. After this fiasco I  think that some people should get  off their, haunches and .-pour a  little effort into their community. ~ , Glen R. Phillips,  President, Sechelt Kinsmen.  Dear Sir: <  ... When you approached me for  the use of a portion of my land  for a parksite I offered; you an  acre and a half on the following  conditions: : '.  a. Anything  done  on  the  property  must  meet  with   the   approval  of Mr.  C.  McDermid  as.  he was right next to the site.  ��� b. Proper sanitation would be  supplied.     y  c. You would obtain full co-operation from the "Village; Council  sOj that any picnic arrangements  they might have would be centralized in the; one-area, on account of sanitation-problems.   ��� .  d. If this agreement was to  cause any ill feelings whatsoever  then the offer would be withdrawn. ';Xx  As I was tying up this property for ten years on a lease at one  dollar a.year, and paying taxes  on the land and also on any improvements, I thought that the  conditions were very reasonable.  However as the people of the village through their elected representatives Benner and Gordon  have taken strong objections to  my terms and state that I am  very demanding, and should be  ignored, I must regretfully withdraw my: offer.

Some of these  consisted of tools and household  ejects, which are no longer  used. The owners realized no value in them.  "Unfortunately none of us realized years ago the value of a  local museum. Mr. L. Peterson  has for the past few years devoted considerable effort towards  this goal, and personally, I feel  that we owe him much praise  for his achievements to date."  $15,000 fire  Fire destroyed the Gordon Walker home on Mason Road,' West  Sechelt last Friday night resulting in a loss estimated at $15,000.

New classrooms and new teachers compounded school trustee  problems at Monday night's meet  ing of Sechelt District School  Board in its Gibsons office. The  problem involved synchronizing  classrooms and teachers.  Should teachers' be hired for  the two-room school on Mason  road and for the addition to Lang  dale school, on the understanding the classrooms would be  ready for the next school term?  ��� or would they? Result of debate was. that Gordon Johnson,  school superintendent should proceed/to' arrange: for up to- nine  more teachers for the next term.  Later in the meeting discussion arose on the using of what  are called internes for schools.  Internes are on their way to becoming teachers and are hired  as, fill-ins in school districts to  obtain further experience. The  board left the idea in .the consideration stage.  When a motion received no  seconder covering the report of  efforts of Trustee Mrs. Ball > to  obtain a department official for  the opening of the new Elementary classrooms, Mrs. Ball tendered her resignation as chairman of the public relations committee.  It was learned that the board  has under, consideration a plebiscite for $220,000 for additional  classrooms  which  might  be  put  PENSIONER LOSES MONEY  An old age pensioner reports  losing a small sum of money on  Saturday in the vicinity of Ken's  Foodland between 4 and 5 p.m.  The finder is asked to phone the  Coast News at 886-2622.  ~     21  FINE  DAYS  During the last 24 days the  area has experienced only one-  fifth -of an inch of rain. The unbroken fine weather from Feb.  28 to March lasted 21 days  ac-  before the public by the enS of  the year. At present the board is  stymied by the department which  has set the amount of the plebiscite and by builder prices which  range   $40,000   higher.  On a vote the board decided  to purchase a TV for use in Pender Harbour school area '  Chairman" Horvath reported on  a meeting between trustees and  parents concerning school discipline arising from a recent junior section dance at Elphinstone  Secondary .School. Parents inquired 'whether some tightening  up could riot be instituted. Chairman Horvath asked the press to  note that discipline starts in the  home and that the schools could  not accept the responsibility for  the lack of training shown by  some.

The trustees feel that this is  the proper time to express to all  ratepayers from Egmont to Port  Mellon their gratitude for the  support the ratepayers have given during, the long years of preparation and actual construction.

Following his meeting with  municipal officials of the area  he will address a public meeting in Sechelt.  A motion at the previous meeting confined the attendance at  the dinner to Sechelt only. Councillor Ben Lang who was not  at the previous meeting seconded  Councillor Swain's move  to  rescind the, motion confining the  affair to Sechelt only.

By your willingness, as expressed in two plebiscites, to be taxed by the Hospital Improvement District, by  other taxes paid by you to the  federal .and provincial governments, you provided the funds  needed for erection of the hospital. Therefore, without dwelling  on any details about the legal  ownership of the hospital buildings and content, we emphasize  that you can rightly look upon  the hospital as yours.  Your interest in the,, hospital  is fully safeguarded, and the bylaws of the hospital society, as  approved by the provincial authorities, provide that the district  and the provincial government  appoint one representative each  to serve on the board of hospital  directors.  The only duty remaining for  the time being is the administra-:  tion of the district and- the provision of annual taxation for the  repayment of our debts- to the  provincial government and to the  holders of our debentures. Our  debt to the provincial government will be paid off in the course  of 1966, the one to the debenture  holders in 1982.  It is anticipated that the present hospital facilities will be  adequate for a number of years  and no long-term borrowing appears necessary for some time  to come.

Babe Ruth or Connie Mack  baseball are urged to be at Hackett Park, Sechelt, at 2 p.m. Sunday for the purpose of registering! Also anyone interested in  coaching or assisting with the  teams is invited to attend.  (By MRS. M.  WEST)  Elphinstone Secondary School  is building traditions and one' of  the pleasantest promises to be  an annual Homecoming. The  first reunion of grads took place  Friday night* and was a great  success, although as it had been  arranged at short notice it had  not been possible to contact everyone.  It seems that girls go all to  pieces after graduation as the  grads could only persuade seven  stalwarts to volunteer for basketball. The school won 10-4 but  the grads, Marilyn Anderson,  Helen Bezdeck, Pat Hogan, Dianne McDonald, Shirley Nelson,  Leanna Whitaker and Linda Yablonski proved themselves heroines. At one time the gym resembled a roman arena, but the  casualties limped back to take  part in the game  . Many hours of practise must  have gone into making the Elphinstone Cheerleaders such a  well co-ordinated team. They  didn't have to work too hard however to whip up enthusiasm as  the boys' game vvas touch and go  from the start and excitement  mounted to fever pitch, in the  last minutes as each team scored  alternately.' The final score was  37-37 with Gary Butler, Gary De  Marco, John Lowden, Lome McKibbin, ��� Bill' Nimm o, Perry Oikc  Lowell, Pearl, Wayne Poole,  Bruce Puchalski and Dean Robil-  liard playing for the grads against the senior boys team.  Between games and the dance  the returning grads were welcomed by Mr. S. Potter, and  Judy Gathercole, president of  the student council. Refreshments were served. Mr. Wiljo  Wiren cut the homecoming cake.  There have been many changes  since Mr.' Wiren graduated in  1923 from the old Howe Sound  United School known' affectionately as the Barn.

In  1946-47 when the Squamish  schools became incorporated into  the Howe Sound School district,  the Howe Sound United School  changed its name to Elphinstone  There were 69 returning grads  representing the years from 1952-  64, several coming from Vancouver and Burnaby. Leanna Whitaker visiting from Edmonton,  extended her holiday in order to  attend and Lloyd Burritt arriving home from Kelowna for the  weekend at 10:30 p.m. came up  to the dance.

Reporting on last year's activities of the district, the annual  zonal meetings of the ratepayers  filled the vacancies on the board  of trustees. The 1964 board was  ; composed as follows: Chairman,  : J. E. Parker (Zone 3), secretary-  treasurer, F. West (Zone 2), trustees: J. M. McMillan (Zone 1),  N. R. McKibbin (Zone 2), F. W.  Stenner (one 2), H. B. Gordon,  (Zone 3), S. A. McDonnell (Zone  4).      >  With the close of the 1965 zonal meetings the term of office of  Mr. Parker and Mr. Stenner come  to an end and election notice has  been given for the two zones concerned.  The financial, statements submitted to the ratepayers with  :��� this report show that the district  ended the year with a surplus of  about $80, reducing the deficit  carried forward from previous  years to just over $50. This deficit should be fully eliminated by  the end of the current fiscal year,  if no unforseen expenditure has  to be met.  The revenues required by the  district could be obtained with  a millrate of 1.85, which was .15  less than anticipated. Although  no final assessments for 1965 will  be available until some time after the courts of revision have  finished their hearings, it is believed that the millrate for hospital taxation will not go up, as  our oblgations for 1965 are practically the same as for the previous year, approximately $32,500  for long-term debt service, $15,000  for short-term debts and $1,500  for administration.  Total revenue for 1964 was  about $62,000, of which $5,200  came from village taxation of  Gibsons and Sechelt, $47,000 was  raised by tax levies under bylaws No. 7 and 9, and approximately $9,400 was received as  interest on the proceeds of our  debenture issue, which was temporarily invested, until the funds  were required for construction  progress  payments.  Revenue    from    interest    was  made   available   to   the   hospital  society in the form of grants-in-  (Contimied  on Page 5) 2      Coast News, March 25, 1965.  ^^QUPIH(^JT;JS  Pensions geared to inflation  CENTENNIAL MEMO  In 1895 teacher     salaries    in  B.C.   ranged   from   $25' to   $135  <_foast Mjeuis  Fred Cruice, Editor and Publisher      Phone Gibsons 886-2622  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  P.O.

Dan Campbell, minister' of municipal affairs when he  visits Sechelt on April 9 is a move in the direction neighboring councils should go.  It is not often a provincial municipal minister brings himself to  the point where he will visit a Gibsonsl-Sechelt area when he has  many, many more problems of major proportions in other more  populated areas.  His visit should be a matter of convenience for all municipal  officials within a reasonable distance of Sechelt, to giVethem an  opportunity to informally discuss with the minister some of the  things which have been a bother to them. It also helps the minister  to find out what problems are facing local municipal officials. There  is much of a sameness in problems facing both municipalities.  It should be remembered that Gibsons, being the senior municipality having been organized in 1929, an interchange of informa-  iton between the village clerks would be of inestimable value to  the municipality of Sechelt which is not yet ten years old.  The rescinding.of a motion passed on March 3 by Sechelt council on March 17 cleared the way for offering Gibsons an invitation  to meet the minister. The rescinded motion confined the event  solely to Sechelt's council. Cabinet ministers having a heavy load  of work to carry would prefer to meet the largest number of affected officials at any one time. If there was a distinct advantage  to be gained by limiting such a meeting to Sechelt only that would  be an entirely different state of affairs but at the moment the only  thing there is between Gibsons and Sechelt is a matter of 14 or 15  miles of highway.  Orbiting signposts  The suggestion that our speeding provincial cabinet minister,  Hon. Phil Gaglardi would feel at home as an astronaut has merit  because astronaut's travel thousands of miles an hour.  There is however a point which might not sit too well with Mr.  Gaglardi. It was revealed by a wag who suggested it would not suit  him because he would not experience the feeling that lie was moving  at all. It could be arranged that a few stationajry sign posts could  be orbited so as to overcome this deficiency. He could then tick  off the miles to his satisfaction.  Who is responsible?  There is a saying that one should hot knock the weather because nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it  didn't change once in a while. There is a variation to that theme  when we experience a long spell of more than 20 days of brilliant  sunshine ��� particularly in the variable month of March. The fact  the wea'ther is not changing becomes the subject of conversation.  There are those people who have blamed the various H-bombs  for bad weather. To whom shall we attribute good weather?  THE COAST NEWS  19 itos ago  MARCH   25  United Church Harmony group  presented a program of solos  and readings at the guest house  owned by Mr.  L.  Steadman.  Newcomers to the district include the Solnik brothers, Frank,  Walter and John who have purchased Mrs. I. Thompsons property.  ' Gibsons Landing tax rate for  the year was set at 20 mills with  extra income from the tax increase to go towards building  a municipal hall.  The Anglican church in Gibsons Landing started plans to  increase the capacity of the  church building.  A landslide created a disturbance which resulted in the discoloration of the water piped to  Selma Park residents.  George Batchelor was elected  president of Sechelt's Legion  branch 140.  INSECTS MAKE SCENTS  Many insects���notably moths,  some butterflies, honeybees and  ants ��� have an extraordinary  sense of smell. Lacking any nose,  they have sensory organs located in the outer segments of their  antennae or "feelers." We know  of an instance when the scent  of a female Cecropia moth, newly emerged from a cocoon in a  cage within a greenhouse where  a few windows were partially  open, attracted scores of males  ���some of them from miles away  Bees in search of nectar are attracted to flowers as much or  more by their scent as by their  color. Ants follow odor trails  made by co-workers. They live  in a world of smells.  .,<^p;*  '���%&'���'  .n_P,  ���   By JACK DAVIS. M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  The Canada Pension Plan will  s9dnribecome law. Also there is  a 90 percent chance that, you  will-be paying into it next year.  So Canadians individually, as  well as collectively, should try  to understand this new legislation.  We already have Old Age  Pensions in Canada. Soon everyone who reaches 65 will be getting $75 a month. The new Pension Plan adds to this amount.  -.': But each of us must pay more,  in if we are to get more .out.  Usually these payments will be  deducted >by your employer.  They will amount to 1.8% of  your income.. Self-employed, if  they wish to join, will pay 3.6%.  Your contribution goes to Ottawa. A credit entry is made  on' your Social Insurance card.  A fund builds up in your name.  ��� And when you retire at 65 it  may be,worth as much as $104  a month.  You can count on $75 a month.  Depending on how much you  contribute you could get up to  $75 plus $104 or $179 a month.  Why am I all for the Canada  Pension Plan? One reason ..is  that the benefits- are portable.  You can work anywhere in Canada. And you can move from  job to job. Wherever you are  and whatever you do, your pension plan entitlement will continue to grow. Previously, employees had to think twice.  Changing jobs' often meant losing pension rights. So there has  been a stickiness to the movement of  people   across   Canada  and into better jobs which will'  be removed by the Canada Pension Plan. ������'  I support' the Canada .Pension  Plan ���for another reason. Any  increasei/in the' basic flat rate  of $75 tends to ' discriminate  against Western Canada. With  higher incomes, we pay, more  taxes than people in other parts  of Canada. Our cost of living  is higher. So, under a flat rate  system, .we pay more - into the  scheme and .get less, out of it.  An individual, contributory system is better. It is better for  most working , people - in high  income ���- areas ' like British Columbia.  What about funds accumulating in the early years of the  Canada Pension Plan?' These  are returned to the provinces  from which the contributions  originate. There they can be  used for any provincial investment such as power dams, highways,  schools and hospitals.  What about Quebec? Quebec  is introducing an identical plan.  Being fully integrated with Ottawa's plan, it follows that a  Canadian can work in Montreal  and retire to Vancouver with-.  . out any difficulty whatsoever.  What about private plans?  These are not directly effected  by the Canada Pension Plan.  Also the Insurance companies  can expect to extend their coverage as they have done in the  United States where a federal  contributory old age pension  program has been in existence  since the 1930's.

Well-known    forest    historian  Gerry  Wellburn reported  finding a number- of Douglas fir  in excess of 1,300 years of age.  The tallest Douglas fir on record is 305 feet in height and  was located near Woss Lake on  Vancouver Island. A giant fir\  measuring 14 feet 4 inches .in  diameter was felled in 1886 near  the corner of Georgia Street and  Granville  Street,  Vancouver.  The most controversial record  for a large tree in B.C. is the  so-called Lynn Valley tree or  the Carey fir named after  George Carey, a resident of B.C.  since 1884. Mr. Carey is reported to have felled a Douglas fir  measuring ,417 feet in height;?  300 feet to the first limb; 25 feet  through the butt, with bark 16  inches thick; circumference was.  77 feet and the diameter 207 feet  aboVe the ground was 9 feet.  Existence of this tree has been  questioned by many leading foresters and historians but the belief by a few in its existence has  kept the legend alive.  Western red cedars in B.C.  have been found in excess of  230 feet  high,  over 1,100, years  Vancouver 3rd  Big city newspaper librarians  often have to settle bets about  the tallest mountain, which city  has most population in the world  arid who died when. To forestall anyone phoning the Coast  News about populations in Canadian cities here are the figures  as at Jan. 1:  of age and the largest in diameter had: a measurement of 17  feet 8 inches. ������;  The oldest yellow cedar was  found jn the vicinity- of Howe  Sound and reached an age of  1.030 vears. Another yellow  cedar found in the Nimpkish  Valley had a diameter measurement of 110 inches.  Western    hemlock    has ' been  known to reach a height of 243    %  feet with the greatest. diameter  ever recorded as 101" at 5 feet  from the ground.  The largest Sitka spruce ever  recorded; in B.C. was felled in  the Queen Charlotte Islands.  This tree scaled 51,004 board  feet, or enough lumber to build  five average-sized homes: Es-  timated height was between 250 x  and 275 feet. The tallest Sitka  spruce on record is one measuring 286 feet in height found near  Port McNeill on Vancouver Island.  Although interior species are  not renowned for great size or  age, the Forest Service has reported finding an Engelmann  spruce west of Invermere, B.C.,  with a diameter of 48 inches and  in excess bf 525 years of age.  A sample of white bark pine  measuring 37.7 inches in diameter with a height of 114 feet  was located in the Moyie Lake  area.  Unfortunately only a few records have been kept on the  giant trees felled during our past  history. The British Columbia  Forest Service is extremely interested in learning of record  trees of all species and would  appreciate receiving any interesting statistics on trees still  standing or felled.

WEST) ,  Although itrwas just an ordinary working day at Gibsons Elementary, owing to the upheaval  caused by moving to the new  school no special programs were  arranged, there was a gala atmosphere. The", brilliant sunshine  and the cheerful bright new classrooms of which the children and  teachers were so obviously proud  and the crowds of happy parents  all contributed to the relaxed  holiday feeling.  In a rather hurried visit several things caught my attention,  the beautiful cork panelling in  the new classrooms for picture  displays, Mrs. Neilson's all boy  class self-portraits, all cowboys  booted and spurred coming to  school, the beginnings of some  good shell collections, a well  designed and executed mural on  logging in B.C. in-Mrs. MacMil-  lan's room and a lively panel  discussion in Mrs. Skidmore's.  The program of films arranged  by Mr. E. Yablonski in connection with Education Week, was  of a high standard, relevant,  stimulating and sometimes amusing and worthy of a wider audience of teachers and parents.'  .. Of interest was a typical Japanese elmentary school, poorly  heated and lacking janitor service but every child in a grade  six science lesson on electricity  had batteries, wires, bulbs, the  equipment to set up his own experiment.  The teaching profession was  discussed by leading educators in  the film Teacher, Authority or  Automaton. The need for teachers to take more responsibility,  for the curriculum, text books,  courses, was emphasized. A  teacher who just repeats a lesson as given in a text book is a  technician but not a professional.  .The Test, a dramatic story of  cheating at school showed how  closely community standards effect , the school and how powerless teachers are without community support.

Mr. Leo Nimsick (NDP, Cranbrook) last week made an urgent plea for immediate reconsideration of Workmen's Compensation Board pensions. He  pointed out that these pensions  had not been increased since 1954  and some of the pensions1 awarded as early as 1944 and '45 had  never been increased at all.  He also emphasized that the  rates being paid" widows" and  children who had lost a husband  and father in industrial accidents  were_ receiving pensions set in  1954.  There has been a royal commission investigating the operation of the Workmen's Compensation Act for almost three years. -  Unfortunately the first judge appointed as the commissioner  died. This meant a long delay  while the new chairman examined all of the earlier evidence.  Unless legislative action is taken to increase pensions this year,  it means at least another 12  months delay. Mr. Nimsick returned again and again to the  subject, demanding that a change  be made, and he-was supported  by opposition speakers and government back benchers.  For several hours Mr. Peterson, the minister of-labor, remained adamant and,would make  no move to change the situation.  Opposition members > clamoured'  for an immediate boost without  waiting for the report of the royal commission. Only-the legisla-  INSURANCE CARD FOUND  If Bill Hamilton has lost an  automobile insurance service  card bearing his name it was  picked'up on Fletcher Road by  David Mcintosh who brought it  to the Coast News office.  tive assembly has the authority  to increase pensions and the  MLAs insisted that some action  be taken during the present session.  Eventually Alex Macdonald  (NDP, Vancouver East) suggested that the minister introduce a  bill under which the legislative  assembly would give the cabinet  power to increase the rates between legislative sessions, so widows and dependents would not  have to wait another year for an  increase.  Finally, Labor Minister Peterson said he would be pleased to  give this consideration, and he  further stated that when the report of the royal commission did  come in, he would recomanend to  the cabinet that tbe increase be  made retroactive to January 1,  1965.  This undertaking represents a  major victory for the members  of the opposition.  John Hind-Smith  REFRIGERATION  PORT MELLON  TO  PENDER HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. .

The complete overhall, and  modernization of Highway 101  between Langdale and Powell River was urged in the Legislature  on Thursday, March 11. The plea  was made during the highway estimates by Tony Gargrave, MLA  (NDP, Mackenzie).  ''This highway improvement is  imperative," Gargrave said. The  impact of the great industrial expansion at Powell River .will result in heavy haulage of material and frequent passage of vehicles over this highway, ,he said.  The village of Gibsons should be  by-passed by a road from Langdale to rejoin the Sechelt Highway behind Elphinstone school,  Gargrave told the minister of  ���highways, Mr. P. A. Gaglardi.  The debate arose while the  ���minister of highways' salary was  -being discussed in the legislative committee. It is during this  .time that the policy of the department isy reviewed, y  the village of Gibsons*, and the  complete blacktopping of road  approaches to Roberts Creek.  Another bottle-neck on Highway  101 is the Lois River bridge, Gargrave said. The Lois River bridge  is old and it has difficult approaches. Ths bridge must be  replaced, he said.  The local member also urged  the minister to increase*the priority for the consideration of a  highway around Howe Sound.  "The Sechelt Peninsula is an important recreational area," he  said.  Tony Gargrave also discussed  with the minister of highways the  necessity for more federal help  lo highway-building programs in  the' province. Mr. Gaglardi  agreed.  The road approaching Gibsons  from the Langdale ferry passes  ���over ��� a small bridge, which; is narrow, inadequate and dangerous,  Gargrave -said.   "In   any   case  this bridge should, be replaced -r- ���  it is an important approach to  the village of Gibsons," he said.  ��� He y alsQx told   the   legislature  ;that ferry transportation was vital to the south end of Mackenzie riding. Though ferry service  across   Jervis: Inlet   and   Howe  Sound is the responsibility of the  B.C. Ferry Authority, service to  Texada  Island and the Comox-  Powell River ferry service is the  direct responsibility of the minister of highways. "Industrial ex-  panson at Powell River will place  unbearable burdens on these ferry services," Gargrave told the  legislature.  /. The local MLA also urged improvement and blacktopping of  ���secondary roads in  and around  ';"'���'���/     o  "'::':..-  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  MON.,  THURS.,   SAT.  1678 Marine Drive ��� Gibsons  Phone 886-9843  Hot X Buns  Fresh Daily  AVAILABLE  NOW  GIBSONS BAKERY  t      Ph. 886-2415  Power system  for Alta lake  ; BX^ Hydro lias announced  plans to construct a power; distribution system this year in the  ^Alta Lake area, about 30 miles  north of Squamish.     y  Extensive". development is expected to take place in this area  following completion of the Squa-  mish-Pemberton Highway.

Sechelt's  municipal  council is  angling to get the national defence   department   to (move - its  v naval   radio   .station   at  Aldergrove to the Sechelt area. '  The matter was placed before  council of Wednesday night of  last week by Councillor William  Swain who said he noted that  the station had to be moved  away from Aldergrove because  of the encroachment of industrial plants too close to the station. �� y  j  The Ottawa dispatch which  arounsed ^Councillor Sy/ain's interest follows:  The purchase of properties  around then naval radio station  at Aldergrove will have to continue, a spokesman for the national  defence  department said.  He said the alternative would  be to remove the naval establishment  to a remote  area.  The spokesman was commenting on complaints about the  land purchase expressed by  Aldergrove merchants, who  claim the displacement of families constitutes a serious threat  to the community.  The spokesman said it is ab  solutely necessary 'to .create a  land buffer around the naval  radio  station   to.-prevent   com-  ,   mercial or industrial  expansion.  "The property hasv to be acquired    to    prevent   intolerable  "> interference to reception and  transmission that industries  might create," he said.  "Evert the establishment of  one small machine shop in the  buffer area could cause trouble:"  The first- bank to be founded  in British Columbia was the Bank  of Vancouver, in 1910.

The announcement was made  from Victoria by the Hon. Dan  Campbell, minister of municipal  affairs, and MLA for the Comox  riding.  Officials have also received approval for completion of a 12-bed  unfinished section of the hospital.   The   provincial   government  ^will  share ( up  to  50 percent  of  costs of both projects.  The hospital is the first in the  province to receive approval for  a; nursing unit for treatment of  chronically ill patients. Last year  the hospital board of trustees  initiated a study into the needs  of a centre for treatment of  chronically ill patients, and a  brief outlining of the findings  was presented to the government  for consideration.  The brief estimated that cost  of construction would reach about  $345,000. Provincial government  participation in the scheme could  cut this figure in half leaving  only $175,000 to be picked up by  ratepayers over a period of years.

The Rayonier company is nov  in process of > expanding from  250 to 550 ��� tons of pulp a. day  and claimed it would have to  have���pulpwood  from   this  area  Mr. Williston said the disallowance should not jeopardize  the expansion plans. He said  that in his opinion the wood  requirements could be met by  increasing the utilization standards on Tree Farm Licences 6,  24 and 25, which the company  holds. This would mean logging  trees down to a size of' 9 inches  diameter at breast height, a  policy which is coming into  force in coastal public sustained  yield units, and also logging to  lower stumps and smaller tops.  At the same time the company  would purchase wood from established operators and bid on  directed pulpwood timber sales  which will be made available..  The minister explained that  in, coastal public sustained-yield  units it has been the practice  ' to log only 13 inch trees or bigger. They will now be logged  ..down to nine inches. The extra  timber available will be allotted  so as to' increase the allowable  cuts of established operators,  make pulpwood sales available  to pulp mills and leave the Forest Service a 'contingency reserve.  Mr." Williston said the decision  was based on a policy of not  granting exclusive pulpwood  harvesting areas *on coastal public sUstained-yield 'units because  the material is required and can''  be utilized by more than one  pulp mill and should be open  to competition to ensure best  utilization.
