Water  rate is  debated  The annual meeting of South  Pender Harbour Waterworks Dis-"  Jrict was held in the Madeira*  Park Legion Hall April 27 with  , the trustees and 44 property owners present.

Councillor James Drummond  thought it would be a good idea  to plant some trees in the Gibson Memorial Park which is now  seeded for grass. He, was of the  opinion some trees scattered  about would be beneficial.  Some public spirited residents  who favored turning the area into  a park, with or without animals,  thought that perhaps a walk  could be run across it from the  Fletcher road corner down to the  water pump house and thus keep  some pedestrians off Winn road  and Gower Point road.

Alan is  a grade nine student at Elphinstone Secondary school and has  been in Scouting for five years.  He attained his first class badge  when he and Dick Scott completed their first class journey. The  boys walked during the Easter  vacation from Port Mellon to  two miles short of Rainy Lake, a  distance of fen miles. Deep snow  prevented them from going further.  Breakw'ter  indefinite  Rumors that Sechelt and Gibsons breakwaters ' were just a  matter of time before their announcement from Ottawa is regarded by Jack Davis, M.P.  being premature.  By telephone, Mr. Davis  plained to the Coast News that  there are still hurdles to be surmounted, one being a definite  commitment resulting in a change  of. policy towards breakwaters.  ���������Mr.7" Davis explainedythat if -the  Change, of \policy: allowed breakwaters chiefly for pleasure craft  there were three projects which  the government might consider.  Until this policy is definite no announcement is possible; ,  Next hurdle to surmount would  be the treasury board which has  the plans before it for consideration in the event of a policy  change.  Blood needed  A blood donor clinic will open  in the Health Centre basement on  Monday, May 17 from 4 to 8:30  p.m. and any person needing  transportation to get to the clinic can phone Jerry Dixon at 886-  9804.  The majority of. people in average health between the ages of  18 and 65 years can give their  blood. There is no diet restriction and donors can eat: anything  they like before making their  donation.  Three-quarters of a pint is taken, about one-twentieth of the average body content. This is replaced within 24 hours. Donors  can give blood every three  months if they so desire. .  Donated blood is used to con-  Hol Hemorrhages, to assist burn  ctms and babies with heart or  yiood defects and many other afflictions.  two operators of commercial properties who objected to being  billed with water tolls when they  were not as yet using the system's water. It was pointed out  by the trustees that in both cases  the operators had signed the application for water services which  includes the sentence "and agree  to become a user when the system is installed."  The trustees further pointed  out that it was not until the completion of the first year's opera-  ion of the water system at the  end of June 1965 that it would be  definitely determined to what extent revenue had met the cost of  operation including the payments  due of principal and interest on  debentures. On a motion by Mr.  W. White it was unanimously resolved to call a special meeting  of property owners as early as  practical upon completion of first  year's operation to consider possible reduction of water tolls.  Mr. E. Garvey questioned whether the water users had agreed  to the present water toll rate of  $5 per month. The secretary stated that a special meeting to consider this matter was held bn  Dec. 8, 1963 after being duly advertised and notices posted. A  further examination of the minutes of this ���meeting reveals that  96 property owners were present  7 and two resolutions were unanimously passed as follows :7  ."7' Moved by L. E. Alexander, seconded by E. G. T. Payne, that  Haslam Lake and Creek be used  as a water source. (License is  already held for Haslam Lake  and application has been made  to abandon licence on Paq Lake,)  Moved by James Cameron, seconded by E. Er Garvey, that water toll, may, if necessary, be  increased from $4 per month to  $5 per month and commercial  rates pro rata. '  The chairman - and secretary  both stated again that the trustees have continuously been  aware of the desirability of reducing waters tolls and making  concessions to persons only using water for the summer months  at the very earliest it.is practical  to do so.  while this year it-is . $44,250 with  a heavy increase of expenditure  on roads, drainage and other items.  Councillor, Ben Lang commenting on, press^ handling of reports  of council meetings requested that  when matters were reported in  the press, ��� a ��� balance' be maintained- and-thai,fair reporting for  all membsrsVof council should get  jonsideratiph.''

Councillor Gordon's motion of last  December cutting council, indemnities ,,in half was then declared  out of order and a motion to this  effect passed. Councillor Gordon  refrained from "voting on this motion moved and seconded by  Councillors Swain and Lang.  Councillor Benner on recreation reported that swimming  classes would be continued this  summer covering the areas of Sechelt, West Sechelt, Halfmoon  Bay, Wilson Creek and Selma  Park with Sechelt Kinsmen contributing $300 towards expenses  and Sechelt council $200 through  the recreation committee.  Councillor Lang suggested  council call tenders for construction of the kiosk on Hackett Park.  He said estimates from three local contractors were quite close.  Boos greet villian!  HER 93rd BIRTHDAY  Mrs. Anna Hjorthy who lived  on Gambier Island 50 years and  several years after that in Gibsons, celebrated her 93rd birthday on April 29 in Kirkpatrick  Home on Kingsway in Vancouver. Mrs. Di Jewitt of Horseshoe Bay supplied a birthday  cake so that the patients in the  home could hold a birthday party  for her.  -iW-u_u__muu_Mnmmittn\\nwumttMmiMnMinim  It was one of those hilarious  nights at Elphinstone Secondary  School, auditorium when more  than 400 persons Saturday nigh-  tried to keep up with the Tidewater Players in their skits Don't  Call Us.��� We'll Call You and No,  No, a Million Times No.  The Madge Newman Don't Call  Us half with Nancy Douglas as  secretary, Harry Robertson, director (Hollywood style) and Diane McFadden his starry-eyed  left hand gal with photogenic  knees all kept under some sort of  control by Gloria Fyles, messenger, sought to collect a cast of  characters which somehow provided good entertainment but  poor prospects for the producer's  show. The auditions wound up in  a general melee when Portia as  done by Diane Laird without permission from Will Shakespeare  rocked both sides of the house, on  stage and in the audience.  The auditions, with a preview  by two char ladies, Jane Lisch  and Molly Almond in Wouldn't  It Be Loverly, gave way.to Helga  Connon in Domino with Jack Inglis gypsying on his violin. Arthur Lisch with Joanne Van de  Meeberg had their juggling performance broken up by the usual effects of a human triangle.  In singing roles were Lucille  Mueller with Mrs. G. Webb at the  piano, the Banana Belters, Jack  Inglis, Mort Mackay, Stan True-  man and John Brighton and folk  singers Helen Weinhandl, Bill  Morrison, Bud and May Blatchford, accompanied by Bill Garrison and Ray Johnson were unable to find a soft spot in the director's heart. The three witches  Molly Almond,. Helga Connor and  Jane Lisch filled the auditorium  with delighted witch squeals  which we . feel. the director  should have recorded then and  there. Lome Blain soloed with  his ukelele but the ��� director'has'  by then been removed in a coma-^  tose state. Portia' then-'really  tore things loose.  No, No, A Million Times No! ���  a mellerdrama with a moral gave  Gerry Van de . Meeberg, Jane  Lisch, Gloria Fyles, Molly Almond, Bill Morrison, John Brighton, Arthur Lisch, Lottie Campbell, May Blatchford, Belle Dube,  Vera Farr, Virginia Murdoch, Lucille Mueller, Dorothy Schoene-  wolf, Lily Edgren, Loiiella Wiebe  and the chorus of Sharon Kraus,  Bud Blatchford, Helen Weinhandl, Don Marcroft, Sandra  Smith, Nancy Douglas, Larry  Boyd, Jenny Scott and Rex Davey, plenty of room to help the  moral along. The moral is that  Tidewater Players and Gibsons  audiences should get together  more often.  The Lisch villain with Pappy  QuackeribusR, the Noble Halted  Bill Morrison, with their female  foils, the fragile daughter Nellie,  (Jane Lisch), Birdie Seed (Gloria Fyles and Emmaline (Molly  Almond) and Iffy Cann (John  Brighton) aided by Gwendoline  Fine Feathers (Lottie Campbell)  the flame around which moths  fluttered, provided fine entertainment ably supported by the chorus which put the needed brake  on the speed of the performance.  The plot can be covered in one  paragraph but the review of the  show is worth much more.  opening  of school  (By Mrs. M. WEST)  Tribute was paid fo school trustees by Mr. W. D. Reid, chief inspector of schools, Victoria, at  the official opening of the new  buildings of Gibsons Elementary  School.  Amid applause from the audience he said we can be proud of '  the talented . members of the  board, who are looking forward  ' to the increasing demands of: an  expanding population and a  changing curriculum.  Having visited most of our.  schools duringrthe two days, Mr.  Reid was satisfied that although  more -schoolsy would- be needed  within- the next few years, the  present^buildings and equipment  are good and" without a backlog of  inadequacy' it should be possible  ��� to \ keep/abreast of the exciting  developments in education today.  yTeam/ teaching, the possibilities  openedup by the use of many different sorts of modern equipment  and.'machines including Educational TV which although still in  the experimental stage will make  it possible to improve the teaching situation. Mr. Reid spoke also  of the importance of the new vocational courses being offered in  the high.schools.  The invocation was given by  Rev. H. Kelly, of the Ministerial  association, followed by the  Lord's Prayer sung by Mr. J.  Ferrari's grade 7 class. Mr. J.  R7 Horvath, chairman of the  school board and Mr. G. E. Johnson,' .district superintendent'���_ of  schools* shared the pleasure of  welcoming7the guests and intro-  ; ducing> Mr.7Reid;7 7  7 7In:7ac^pting\Jhe 'syn_b��>lic:key,  Mr7:G7^'A7 Cooper^ pfincipaj.men-  tioned the importance not only of  the buildings but of the children  and the aspirations of the sfeff to  impart not only knowledge, but  an understanding of moral values  and citizenship.  A group of Grade 6 and 7 girls  trained by.Miss M. Sturdy sang  the Chimney Sweep's song from  Mary Poppins. Highlight of the  Drama club presentation of Han-  sel^and Gretel was the clear, true  singing voice of Virginia Campbell as Gretel. Greg Hogue played the part of Hansel, the parents were Juanita Chamberlin  and Danny McKay. Patsy Hicks  a fairy and Toni King the most  realistic witch. Mrs. McMillan  directed the play which received  well-earned  applause.  Refreshments were served by  the PTA. Parents had a chance  to look over the school.  Pipe sizes  debated  A letter from Martin J7 J; Dayton, engineer, on costs covering  . a proposed pipe line from Chaster Creek to the Gibsons.: water  -supply suggested that council coh-  ���. sider   a   two-inch  pipe.: Council  preferred a  three inch  pipe,  it  was revealed at Tuesday night's  meeting.  No reason was given for the  selection of the two inch pipe,  but it was suggested the smaller  pipe could be handled better over  the rough terrain. The matter  was referred back to Mr. Dayton.  Mrs. John Glassford reporting  on her correspondence with provincial officials to make the park  graves into an historic site, said  she had learned there was no way  to declare it as such after writing to three departments.  A grant of $25 was made to the  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair.  Gerry Dixon and Ken Goddard  on behalf of the Kinsmen club  sought tax relief from the village  on the Kinsmen park which the  club holds by lease. The club  plans to add to facilities there.  The proposed wading pool was  discussed again with the hope it  would materialize.  Councillor Fladager said he  ivould prefer to see some improvements at the park before  council offered tax relief. Last  year's taxes were $133 and this  year could be $171. Council proposed that if improvement was  shown by tax collect..��� n time consideration cook! p. ?iven.

Last week's White Rock Sun contained a news item which suggested women should familiarize themselves with -Hansard and determine for themselves what has been accomplished on the floor of  the federal house. The suggestion was made by Mrs. Irene McCann,  provincial president of the Social Credit auxiliary.  One can only wonder why Mrs. McCann should desire to wish  the terrible fate on anybody of reading Hansard to find out what  has been done on the floor of the house. One can only wonder whether  she reads Hansard herself. We could think of no more terrible punish-  . ment than to read the speeches that echo in the house punctuated by remarks from listeners with some of the punctuation not  even reaching the level of school-boy humor.  There is a more simple way to learn what has been going on.  The party in power usually puts out literature on what it has done.  This should have been recommended by Mrs. McCann  Suspenders and morale  There are certain things about the younger generation of men  that have caused us concern in the past. We have gone through an  era of fancy belts, for example. Haberdasheries have, in the past,  heen cluttered with the flamboyant lengths of material meant to  hold up a male's trousers. It wasn't enough to put metal on belts  of twine, ribbon, horsehair and designs all over good leather; whoever it is that decides such things began making furbelowed.rope.  Now we notice that suspenders are coming into style again. Not  only that but we see the trouser supporters made of colors that have  emphasis and authority. Blue, green, yellow and brown have their  adherents. But for genuine, deeply-satisfying, all-around masculinity  give us suspenders with a red that is red. Not one of these pastel  shades of henna or maroon. But real scarlet eye-arresting red that  says its say without equivocation or mental reservation. When a  man's wearing a pair of 'em it does something good to his morale.  ���Contributed. . ,  Minute message  And if Christ be not raised,  your faith is vain; ye are yet  in your sins. 1 Cor. 15:17.  Every year, millions celebrate  the birth of Jesus Christ, His  death, and resurrection, yet if  Christ be not risen, it is all in  vain.  Multitudes observe the rites of  baptism and the Lord's supper,  but if Christ be not risen, it is  all in vain.  No matter what we do regarding church ordinances and worship, if Christ be not risen, it  is all in vain.  But Praise God, ' Christ is  risen, and sits on the right hand  of God, making intercession for  those to whom the resurrection  is a living reality in their lives.  The miraculous chanjge wrought  in the lives of thousands is proof  that Christ is risen, and lives in  the hearts of those who will put  their trust in Him.  Therefore if any man be in  Christ, he is a new creature; old  things are passed away; behold,  all things are become new. 11  Cor. 5:17.���Rev. Walter S. Ack-  royd, Pender Harbour Tabernacle.  Do any unexplored mountain  ranges remain  on  the  Canadian mainland?.  Yes. There are still several of  which it is true to say that they  are virtually unexplored to this  day. The Encyclopedia Can-  adiana, comments on a mountain range of the Yukon Territory. "The Ogilvie Mountains  are not penetrated by any navigable stream or natural route  of travel; and although they are  only a short distance north of  Dawson, they have been little  explored."  The    Ogilvie    Mountains    lie  north of the central Yukon Plateau  and  are   in   effect a  continuation   of   the   Selwyn   Mountains,   extending  to   the   Alaska  boundary and a little beyond. To  their north lies the plain drained  by the Porcupine River.  A few  peaks   reach  7000   feet,   but  the  general  level   of   the  ridges   is  five to six thousand feet. These  mountains are named after Wil-  ilam Ogilvie, later commissioner  for  the   Yukon   Territory,   who  crossed them at the west in 1888.  In a public address in eastern  Canada by Hon. Maurice Sauve,  federal minister of forestry he  used as his subject the extent  of poverty in Canada and outlined a new dimension to poverty,  largely rural, which should be  of interest to people in this area.  Part of his speech follows:  We can no longer blind ourselves to a stark fact about Canada in 1965: there is unacceptable poverty in the midst of our  plenty. How much poverty is  there in Canada? The answer  to that question depends on how  we define poverty.    ..  *     *'*������.  What is poverty? Poverty is  a relative concept. The definition of poverty varies according  to time and place, and according to the general level of prosperity of a given society. We  would all agree that people are  poor if they cannot afford the  basic necessities of human life:  food, shelter, elementary medical care. Any man or family  that cannot satisfy even these  primary wants is poor by any  standards ��� we might agree to  call such a condition absolute  poverty. But to most Canadians  in 1965, a man or family can  remain poor long after the absolute minimum requirements of  life have been met.  Perhaps the easiest way to  define this kind of relative poverty is this: a Canadian in  1965 is poor if he is prevented  for any reason from enjoying  basic minimum levels of security and benefits that most Canadians take for granted in our  prosperous nation. ,  *��* **��� *!__  -V* *V�� <r*  This definition emphasizes the  essentially political nature of the  decision as to what constitutes  poverty. The definition of relative poverty depends on the consensus of most Canadians that  none of our fellow citizens  should be forced to live in conditions that we no longer con-  -sider acceptable in Canada today.  To put it another way, we feel  that in a country as wealthy as  ours, every citizen should have  a right to expect a certain minimum standard of living. This  minimum standard falls, somewhere above absolute poverty  and below Canada's average  standard of living. Probably it  will vary slightly from region  to region, as do our average  standards of living, and as do  average. income and the average  cost of living.  In  fact,  if we     express     our  minimum    acceptable    standard  of living in monetary terms, we  obtain in effect a minimum cost  of living figure. This would unquestionably   be   subject   to   re-r  gional  variations,   and  is  therefore difficult to calculate for all  of Canada. Insufficient research-  has so far been done  on mini-;  mum   cost  of  living   figures   in  various parts of Canada.  *     *     *  ARDA,  however, in  an effort1  to make a preliminary estimate  of the extent of relative poverty  in  rural   Canada,    chose   some 7  arbitrary  income  figures  which"  ARDA   officials   feel   are   minimum income levels  required to  meet   rural   living   costs   today.  These   figures - were,   for   farm  families, gross sales of agricultural products of $2,500 a year;[  for non-farm  rural  families, an  annual income of $3,000: and for'  male rural non-farm wage earners,   annual   earnings   of  $2,000.  I am sure you will agree that  these income figures are set at  a fairly low level.

From Garden Bay this note:  "Contrary to many rumors it is  desired that the public be notified that Mr. Edison Brisco of  Jorgenson's logging camp is not  dead." He was in hospital for a  serious operation.  farm families iri Canada, or almost 100,000; families, had gross  sales of less than $2,500 a year,  and very little income from other  sources; that 43% of all rural  non,-farm families, or almost  300,000 families, had incomes of  less than $3,000 a year; that  32% of rural non-farm wage-  earners, or over 200,000 rural  men, had incomes of less than  $2,000 a year.  These figures tell only part  of the story. For in order to  have access. to the minimum  advantages of modern Canadian  civilization that I discussed  earlier, it is not always suffi-  cient to have a certain minimum level of income. In the  first place, these advantages  may simply not be available in  some areas, regardless of the  individual's ability to pay for  them. I am thinking particularly'  of community services such as  schools, teachers, hospitals, doctors, cheap transportation, electricity, running water, and so  on. The availability of such services cannot always be conveniently expressed in terms of cost  of living figures.  . *      _�� ' r  *' 7  In the second place, even  though the necessary goods and  services are locally available,  and within the income of a given  person or family, the people in  question may fail to take advantage of them^ preferring instead to spend their money on  so-called luxuries or other less  important things. This brings up  the tricky problem of motivation, and of the right of the  individual to spend his money  as he sees fit. Often, however,  the individual derives part of  his income from social welfare  policies, at least indirectly; this  should probably involve legal restrictions on his freedom to  spend it. In the absence of such  restrictions, motivating people  becomes a question of educating  them. I will return to the question of education later on.  How much poverty in Canada?  On the basis of the definition  we have reached of relative poverty, can we now say how many  Canadians are poor? Not with  any precision, for two reasons.  First of all, we have yet to decide on the exact components  and levels of the minimum standard of living that we can consider acceptable in Canada today. Secondly, we do not yet  have enough data on costs of  living and on incomes broken  down on a regional basis. Going solely by national income  figures, however, it is reasonable to assume that at least one  fifth of Canada's population is  living at levels that the other  four-fifths would consider unacceptable. In rural areas, the  figure  is  as  high  as  two-fifths.  * *     *  It was President Kennedy,  speaking of the United States,  who wrote, "poverty in * the  midst of plenty is a paradox that  must not go unchallenged in this  country." The same paradox  faces Canada, carrying with it  the same challenge. We do not  yet know enough; but we know  enough to make a beginning in  the fight. We know that we must  put the benefits of Canadian  civilization in the mid-century  within the reach of all our people. It has been said that the  problem of poverty should remind us of a simple truth; he  who wishes to live in a civilized  community must take responsibility for more than himself.  This is the basic philosophy of  ARDA. Within this framework,  ARDA has devised some fundamental approaches for dealing  with low income in rural areas.  Rather than simply attempting  to create new or better-paying  jobs for unemployed or underemployed rural people, ARDA  ties employment to the develop- .  ment of the resources of the  area. Areas that are particularly  suited to a global approach to  integrated resource development  can be designated by the provincial and federal governments  as Special Rural Development  Areas.  * *     *  Such areas warrant a comprehensive co-ordinated approach to  economic and social development because they are subject  to widespread low income, have  major, adjustment problems, and  have recognized developmental  potentials.  A comprehensive rural development program involves the  following:  (1) physical, economic, and  social studies and investigations  necessary to the determination  of the development problems and  potentials of the area;  (2) the involvement of local  people through the ��� establishment  of rural development committees or similar bodies;  (3) the preparation of comprehensive rural development plans;  (4) the undertaking of a broad  range of projects for the develop-    ;  ment of the rural development  area in conformity with the development plans, to increase income and employment opportunities and raise standards of  living. 7 ���'" y-i   !

Yet a few  chance words can prove very fortunate sometimes.  Years ago, an unknown young author had his book accepted,  and the publisher asked which he preferred, a hundred pounds  for the copyright of a royalty arrangement.  The young man chose the hundred pounds, but while the publisher went out to prepare the contract, someone whispered,  "I'd take the royalty if I were you."  Swinging around, the author observed an elderly clerk, already back at his work. The author didn't take long to decide.  He went back into the publisher's office and settled for royalties.  The book, "King Solomon's Mines" by Henry Rider Haggard,  became an all-time best-seller, and what that advice cost the  company no one has dared to compute.  Now here's a "bit of advice" you'll find worth heeding. The  easiest, safest and surest way to avoid financial stress and strain  is to make regular deposits in a Bank of Montreal savings account. Then when unexpected need or opportunity arises, you  have the ready cash waiting for you. You'll be amazed at how  handy it can prove. To start your account, visit the Gibsons or.  Sechelt branches of the B of M soon. Ken Holness or Danny  DenHoed, the accountants there, will show you how easy it is,  and how profitable in the years to come.  Adt.

Geared to an expanding economy  it allows for certain tax cuts.  These, however, have been limited to personal income tax. Corporation and i sales taxes remain  as-before.- '  The biggest news was the 10  percent cut in our individual income tax returns to Ottawa. For  those earning $5000 a,year this  means a saving of up to ��5 a  month. Hundreds of millions of  dollars, in other words, will be  kept in circulation. In this way it  create additional job opportunities in this country.  The soundness of Mr. Gordon's  latest budget can be seen by balancing ' the; nation's income  against its expenditures. The deficit or shortfall, for many years,  . has been around ten percent. In  1964, however, it was cut to one  percent. This year, even allowing  ��� for acut.in personal income tax,  Canada's chronic-deficit wiii have  largely disappeared.  Mr. Gordon has managed to  PUt our financial house in order.  But his budget is not without controversy. Take for instance the.  setting up of a billion dollar Canada Development Corporation. Its  jobris to sell shares in modest  amounts to Canadians and invest  the proceeds in industry which  might otherwise fall under foreign control. Socialism? Well  hardly. The government will only  get the corporation going. Afterwards ) it will be run like every,  other 'business with the profits  going back to the average -Canadian who is willing to invest his  savings in this way.  Mr. Gordon has also moved to  protect the position of Canadian  will call for more production and  Many trophies  Talking of trophies, Mrs. Mary  Walker of Welcome Beach has  what must be almost a record  collection of trophies which she  won for decorated cars while she  was the owner of the Rose Dress  Shop In New Westminster. Some  of the trophies in her collection  come from the Penticton Peach  Festival (1950), the P.N.E. (1950  and 1952), the New Westminster  May Day parade (1951), the Seattle Fair (1955), the Kelowna  Regatta (1955), the N. Burnaby  Christensen Trophy (1956), the  Hudsons Bay Company (1857) and  the Port Moody Kinsmen  (1963).  FURNITURE CHECKED  After having spent a day in  Vancouver checking over second  hand and new office furniture  for the new city hall, Councillors  Sam Fladager and James Drummond along with ''Gibsons village  clerk, C. F. Gooding, decided that  it would be more advisable to  buy new furniture. This they reported at last week's council  meeting. Council has set aside  about $4,000 for new furniture.

Soon however they will  be in a preferred position. The. expenses of Canadian based .firms  advertising at home" will be ���, recognized for tax purposes; Spent  outside the country they will be  ignored.  Many other items appear in the  budget. Research is to receive a  further shot in the arm. Drugs  may yet escape the eleven percent federal sales tax. And some  goods imported from the United  Kingdom may have easier access  to the Canadian market.  In all Mr. Gordon's announcements add up to a sunshine budget. But it does not, at the same  time, point to a fall election. On  the contrary it shows that the  government, is looking confidently into the nation's future.  Wire-elects  Mrs. Corlett  Mrs. J. Corlett of Gibsons was  re-elected president of the district board of Women's Institutes  at the 35th annual meeting of the  Fraser Valley District Women's  Institutes at Haney with 150 delegates, including eight members  and two visitors from - Gibsons.

Legal /fee'  arg  Sechelt's Councillor Joseph Ben;  ner expressed deteririination at  last Wednesday's council meeting to fight the calse through,  when council, as the result of a  letter from J. E. Brown, deputy  minister of municipal affiairs,. decided it was not council's responsibility to pay legal fees involved in an election recount.  The issue arose: when Councillor Benner presented a bill, at a  previous meeting covering $69  legal expenses involved in the recount. Mr. Brown's letter followed as the result of council's seeking advice from Victoria. Council had passed the bill with the  reservation that advice from Victoria should be sought..  Argument during the discussion revealed that Mr. Benner  hired a lawyer before he was a  councillor; that the council was  responsible only for the judge's  fees at the recount hearing; that  the motion was questioned by the  municipal auditors, the auditors  maintaining there was nothing in  the Muncipal act covering coun-  cl's right to make such payment.  Discussion evolved to the point  where it was left. for Councillor  Benner to consult his lawyer' for  further advice.  LETTERS  to editor  Editor: Judging from letters  which have appeared recently 't  can be construed that there is  some type of cohesion among certain people in Sechelt who are  striving to mislead the public/  I do not think they have accomplished their objective. During  my residence on this same ,sec-  tion of shoreline I have witnessed  other attempts to install other  methods of hauling out boats and  all unsuccessful. The number of  taxpayers who have used this  contraption, I feel sure could.be  counted on the fingers of my two  hands. There may have been r,__  few others who were not taxpayers.  ���  When the last $600 of taxpayers'  money was squandered on this  contraption (the boat launching  ramp) iri the spring of 1964 I asked that a book be kept there to  be signed by the people who used .  it. This was not done...  The hard cash spen'fjom this impractical scheme, .amounted to ap- .  proximately $1,300 .At this point  it might be appropriate to mention the considerable amount of  voluntary work donated to the  work by mernlbers of the Sechelt  Rod and Gun Club. A considerable, amount of other money,  about s $1,900 was also a pure  waste as the trees cut down to  form a retaining wall on the front  retained nothing as the winter  storms washed what they were  supposed to retain, away. They  also bulldozed logs away, which  had been on the,beach for years,  forming a natural breakwater.  As to the. so-called waterfront  park, it is not a park and never  was and never will be. It is a  road. As to the abuse directed at  the gentleman who lives on the  road, at least he has given of his  time arid substance to the public  good, more especially the Scouts  where he has 'done yeoman ser- ������-'  vice.       7 Sam Dawe.

R: Hourston, director of  federal fisheries department in  Vancouver expressing- its pleasure at the efforts of the department to develop sports fishing.  This was decided at Sunday's executive meeting which started! at  the Ruby Lake Motel and ended  at John Haddock's Marina, Madeira Park.  Executive members were informed of what the department  had done to. support sports fishing and learned that some efforts  were being made to curtail herring fishing which it was reported had done a great deal towards  diminishing the supply of salmon,  through netting as well as depriving them of food.  The possible harmful effects  of the Strait of Georgia herring  fishery on salmon sport fishing  and a salt water sport fishing  licence were the major topics  of discussion at the third meeting of the British Columbia advisory committee on salt water  sport fishing. Mr. W. R. Hours-  ton, director, Pacific area, . of  the  Department of Fisheries of  LOST '.  Fluffy grey, white and tan cat  missing since April 21 in Sechelt  area; Finder please phone 885-  9793.  Canada, chaired the meeting.  Almost all committee members  expressed serious concern over  the possible effect of the Georgia  Strait herring fishery on Chinook  and Coho salmon stocks in this  area. Mr. Hourston. assured the  committee that his department  was cognizant of the ^problem  and was exploring ways and  means of minimizing the incidental catch of salmon while at  the same time providing for the  harvest of valuable commercial  stocks of herring, y  The committee heard a detailed comparison of two possible  sport fishing licencing systems  under study by the department:  Display of art  The art display Saturday evening in Elphinstone Secondary  school auditorium which was available for public inspection after  the Tidewater Players presentar  tion of its two. plays, drew considerable comment.  The display showed paintings  done by pupils of Mrs. K. Wells  and lined two walls, with many  of them finding favor with the  viewers. Some artists had quite  a number of exhibits. Comment  overheard expressed the opinion  that the area contained quite a  number of people who/could wield  the brush effectively.  At a safety program dinner in  Seaside hotel at Port Mellon on  Tuesday night of last week, E. C.  Sherman, new manager of Canadian Forest Products pulp mill  expressed the hope that for the  next year safety would be a big  factor now that building programs  have been completed  He thought it significant that'  with contractors operating around  operating machinery which i>ro{  vided some hair-raising cases,  that the 1% cord was not too bad.  He thanked the staff for its effort  in keeping down the accident rate  terming it a. good job.well.done.  He hoped the accident ratio for  the coming year would be brought  closer to normal. All sorts of  things have been done to place the  mill in a safe condition. Most accidents, he added, were caused  by not thinking.  C. R. Rustemeyer, director of  safety ^programming at the mill,  thanked the staff for its work of  the last year in keeping the accident ratio down. Getting dovirn to  his safety theme he said that six  percent of the people involved  caused 50 percent of the accidents/ This meant that 30 employ?  ees were iriainly responsible.;  They were unnamed, unknown,  unimportant employees.  Some people thought only  squares conformed 7 to authority  and" that laws were to be broken  and not upheld. This meant that  people were - the problem and  some way must be found to prove  that authority in safety rules /was  necessary/,:���/  ���,��� 7."~ '     /������''' :-:  Fred Corby, president of IiOcal  297 expressed thanks for the dinner to showr appreciation for the  work done in safety during the  year. He recognized the great  problems that faced the 1964  safety committee and felt that  most of the accidents were/the re-  result of construction .���? contracts  and not so much a mill operation responsibility. He added that  on behalf of the union he thanked  management for the help it had  given the employees.  r  If you're  yy. -."t y. 0y"p -Uo  yourself  Thismessage might provide a pjitive answer.

Ferries are manned beyond the requirements of, the  Canada Shipping Act, M. F. Aldous, general manager of the  B.C. Ferry Authority, says in a  press release.  Recently there, have been reports in the press that B.C. Ferries do not have the required  number of crew and that management is trying to make every  man do the work of two.  The B.C. Ferry Services compare more than favorably with  the other two Ferry Companies  operating the same type of service, namely the Black Ball  Transport Inc. and the Washing-,  ton State Ferry System.  The B.C. Ferries main services, Tsawwassen to Swartz  Bay, Namaimo to Horseshoe  Bay have a crew of 34,- which  compares  as  follows:  Pas. Autos Crews  B.C.

Ferries has  instituted a working program  whereby the workload is lessened for the crews in as much as .  an outside company is employed  to do the ship cleaning and a  separate staff of painters is employed  to  do the ship  painting.  Wages for B.C. Ferry Personnel compare very favorably with  other operations in British Columbia, namely Northland Navigation, Canadian National Steamships and Canadian Pacific  Steamships, as illustrated:  Seamen   Stewards  B.C.

On April 12, grade 8 students  from Elphinstone visited'' Fort  Langley, the historic, site. of. the  1858 proclamation of. the Crown  Colony of British Columbia. The  first Fort' Langley, a. Hudson's  Bay Trading Post, named after  Thomas Langley, a director of.  the company was built in 1827  some two' miles downstream from  the present site, to which it was  moved in 1839. In 1840 it burnt  down but was immediately., rebuilt. Within the palisade were $5  buildings, the largest-a 2-storey  house, 70 ft by 34 ft. for the officer in charge and his assistants.  Fort Langley played ��� an important part jn the history of the  west coast. Very little Of the,early  fort remains but a skillful authentic restoration was started as a  centennial project in 1958. There  are: at present three buildings,  the officers* quarters, carpenter's  shop and. storehouse, part of the.  palisade and one of .the three bastions which each* housed two nine  pounder cannons. ' f'  Giha Bennet, Tbehise Quarry  and Liese Rosalind wrote the f ol-  Iowing account.pf- the field trip.  "It  was71ate 7in\ the   morning  when we arrived at the Fort and  were introduced to Mr. MacKenzie, our : guide. We went first to  the. officers quarters, a reconstruction of the original building.  Touring trie house we found many  points of interest, including the  first piano to be brought to B.C.,  the room where Premier Bennett  holds a cabinet meeting every  Nov. 19,. "quill pens, written documents las well, as many other  things. We were all impressed  with the importance of tea, which  ' was always kept under lock and  key.  The next building we visited  was the carpenters shop. It was  amazing to 7 see : so manjr hand-  operated tools. The general store  was the only building made of  the original wood. Here we saw  various cooking utensils,.a turnip  grinder, an old school register  and many other interesting  things. We were able to climb up  into the ibastion and look out over  the surrounding ^countryside and  the Fraser River. 7'  "Our route back to Vancouver  took'us through the Deas Island  Tunnel, yy"' ��� '7 .v      :, 'r y  ''In Vancouver We  stopped at  the museum and toured through  the Indian section. There were  many large masks representing  dogs,'wolves, cougars and other  animals. We also saw an Indian  skull tnat had been operated on  by a witch doctor.  "The trip was very enjoyable  and we all had fun. Special thanks  go. to Mr. Brighton, Mr. Harrison  and the school board who made  the trip possible.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  One of the most controversial...  items in  the current budget  is .7  Finance Minister  Gordon's  new "  Canada Development Corporation.  Government Backed, it is to be 7  the small man's pro-Canadian in-  -���vestment   agency.. But   its   first  objective is to" make/a profit, in  other words it'will endeavour to  mobilize  Canadian  savings   and  channel them into growth indus-^  tries   many   of   which   are   now"  owned and controlled abroad.  Some of the critics are saying  that this is an7exercise in .state  socialism.  But  they  are  wrong.  Ottawa   cannot   own  more  ttian-  ten percent of the shares. It will  only appoint a few. directors. The  rest, drawn largely from private :  enterprise, will run the new Can- "  ada Development Corporation in  much, the same manner as any  other Canadian industry.  Ghangfes for  jr. wardens  Marc W. Gormely was elected  president of the Junior Forest  Wardens of Canada to succeed  Elmer J. Palmer; P. H. Dietrich  was named vice-president at the  annual meeting iri Vancouver,   y  Mr. Gormely said the training  program    and    uniform    would  undergo  changes.  The. directors-  have recommended that courses  of instruction be     widened,   to  cover" fish and wildlife conservation,   survival   and  junior   rifle  safety  and  a full  study of  rer  source management fbr,>the;new "  Conservation - Wardens aimed at 77,  boys, 15- and 18. 7.4  Radio   communication  iristfuc-,  tion will replace..

The uniform/will be re^'.  vised so that all boys entering*-  into the forest will wear regular  approved, hard hats. In addition,  the uniform hatv will have some  change in design to    meet    all  weather   conditions.   The   green  tie will be replaced by a para- ...  chutist's type scarf and new design long   pants   in   olive  drab  will replace the    forest    green  ���trousers.     Many     changes     in  badges are also contemplated. -  Mr. Palmer .pointed out .that  there are now 76 Junior Forest  Warden clubs tfdth a total, of 2,-  322 members operating in ��� British Columbia and Alberta with  an additional 3,969 in the' Lone  Patrol.  > A few are saying that the new  1 corporation will be used as a club  to threaten, foreign'capital. This  is, also, untrue. Foreign investors wili be welcomed with open  arms. But the new CDC will frequently buy into. successful foreign dominated concerns. Also,- it  may take a controlling interest  in older Canadian owned enterprises whenever they are offered for .sale in the international  market place.  '7 /y^yy  Some skeptics take another  tack. They say that the $1 billion  CDC may turn out to be a gigantic financial Ilop7 Two. hundred  million shares at $5 apiece is, a  big stock issue. But Canadians, I  ; think, will respond to the challenge. Some will be inspired by  patriotic motives. Others will  gamble on the nation's. future.  But .the great majority will; see a  profit in th6 offing. They will  count, in other words, on the Canadian Development Corporation to  be business like and to rank nationalism second to the sound  management of the corporation's;  affairs. ,  Nor will the CDC be merely a -  paper operation. Several well-run  government owned industries like  the multi-million dollar Polymer  Corporation will be turned over  to it at the Outset. They,, in other  j words> will' be denationalized. ,  ���-."They,'.in effect,/will enter into  the grey area between Crown' Corporations on the one .hand .and  . private enterprise on the other.  This then is a positive measure. At the same time it .will  also face up to the problem of  /./steadily^mounting foreign ownership and control' in this "country.  But the corporation's success al-.  "ready appears to be assured.

StadiumyMay  7 and 8. Although the four athletes did not. win any awards  each had the satisfaction of  either bettering their own personal Tnecord in their chosen  event or competed in an event  where the. winner broke meet  records.  In the case of Edna Naylor  she was competing for the second time in the womens open,  javelin throw and for the'first  time this year, her throw in this  I meet was 112 feet. This effort  would have got her fourth place,  but due to the wet grass she  slipped over the foul line.  J  Mouren Owen ran the grueling  womens 880 yard in 2 minutes  39 seconds to better her personal record by 5 seconds. The  12 year old Miss Owen finished  7th in a field of the best middle distance runners in Western  Canada and the United States;  she also had 'the satisfaction of  beating a girl she ran second to  the week before at New Westminster. 7    ^  Mike Clement and Dave Burritt both ran in the High School  Junior Boys 660 yard run turning in times of one minute 34  seconds and one minute 38 seconds respectively.  Neither boy had run this distance before, but their times  can be considered very 7 good.  Clement normally runs the 440  yard race, and Burritt specializes in the 880 yard run. Out of  a field of 32 runners they-ran  14th and 15th.  ' -  A number of the contenders  in this 17th running of the Vancouver Relays are athletes of  international and national status.  The fact the four local athletes  were good enough to compete  in the same meet was rewarding.  socc  BOWLING  E & M BOWLADROME  (By ED CONNOR)  ... rj  Monday Ladies: Sirens ' 2468  Schnooks 970. M.

The first five-minutes of play  belonged to the7Select with the  flow being towards the United  goal, but it was noticeable that  Hoehne did not have to clear the\  ball once in that time. Kenny'  Bland leading the visitors attack,  seemed to spell danger with every move He made, but it seemed  as though he' had- no support..

Gradually the United  applied the pressure, and when  it became more ;and more evident  that the Select' defence had no  answer to the long throw in, or  the two interchanging centre forwards, it came as no surprise  when Hansen applied the finishing touch to a Winn and McKay  move after approximately 10 minutes play.  Inside the 20 minute mark, McKay, coming in from the wing,  took a pass on the drop, and from  about the 18 yard line ..just hammered a vicious ball past the  keeper.  The Select left winger had one  of the nicest through balls ,1 have  ever seen given a winger, he beat y  Thomas neatly on the inside, and  chipping the ball over, found  Bland on the run. The big fellow  did not hesitate and doing what  any good centre should do, drove  the ball hard and low. for the net.  This' shot had goal written, all  over it, until Hoehne, diving full  length to his left clutched the ball. .  to his chest and put paid to that  effort.
