Array GOLDEN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE HOUSE & MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph.  886-9815  ary,  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 20, Number 7, February 17, 1966.  7c per copy  TWILIGHT THEATRE  PROGRAM ON PAGE 8  Sechelt  gets $215,000 boat harbor  Sechelt boat harbor is one of  eight announced in federal government public works _ estimates for the west coast. The  ;cost will be $215,000.  The  other . seven  will  be  at  Port Simpson, Kelsey Bay, Mas-  set,  Port    Alberni,., Quatsino,,  Queen Charlotte City and. Uclue- ���  let, to ;cost a further- $1070,000.  It is expected work will start  on the boat harbor shortly  at the point, in Selma Park  area in vicinity of the road  near Malawhana Drive-In. -  According to earlier information in a letter from the superintendent general of Indian affairs to Jack Davis, M.P. the  public works department had  estimated the cost at $215,000,  involving construction of a  stone mound 'breakwater, together with the dredging of a  basin in the lee of the break-,  water. There is no provision- for;  floats or landing facilities in'  the;item.   . ; y ���;���  District public works officials,  the letter continued, have. scheduled sounding and boring 7 surveys of the site. A firm location for the new works will, be  dependent on the surveys. ���      ?  Consternation    ..followed y'aj  radio     station     announcement  concerning the amount involved;  in the work for the Sechelt  boat harbor. The radio station  stated the amount for the harbor was $15,000; Sam Dawe of  Sechelt who heard that announcement checked immediately with the radio station and  they confirmed that their information read $15,000. However when the morning edition  of the Province arrived from  Vancouver it was checked and  the figure read $215,000.  School board building left in  The district school board at  Monday night's meeting in its  Gibsons office decided riot to  make a separate referendum out  of the proposed $54,000 school  board office to be built on the  old School Hall site.  Trustee Mrs. Celia Fisher reporting for the planning committee said the committee was  unable to decide on the issue so  brought it before the board. The  board when it voted on a motion  to continue it in the general referendum saw Trustees Fisher,  -Volen; Douglas and Thorold  vote in favor and Trustees Leo  Johnson and W.pH. Malcolm opposing. Mr. Johnson is from Sechelt and Mr. Malcolm from  Pender Harbour.  The coming referendum will  place before the public practically intact the contents of the  referendum defeated last December. The board awaits final  approval of the new referendum  from Victoria officials.  In the meantime a situation  has arisen over the proposed  takeover of Union Steamships  property in Sechelt by some  Americans on or about March  15" according to correspondence  in the hands of the board. A!s  Sechelt Elementary school pro-  Motel still without water  Application for water service  from Norman Procknow of Peninsula Hotels Ltd., to use water  from the Farnham property to  supply an adjacent 20 rootaa. motel was turned down by Gibsons  municipal council at Tuesday  night's meeting.  Reason for the refusal as explained by Councillor Sam Fladager, waterworks chairman was  that if this' application was  granted councilwould have to  supply every house and commercial yestablishment .Outside  ;' t_ieiV_lK_.els_^  ; impossible.^iiritil-the; village ob-*  tairied an increased water supply. As matters now stand there  is always the possibility of a  water: shortage in dry summers  with the present supply.  This is another move in Mr;  Prockriow's aim to get a water supply for his motel. Previously he had suggested court  action to force council to give  him water.  A letter from J. McQuarrie,  Chants help  Municipalities of Gibsons and  Sechelt will be slightly better  off ='financially as a result of  the $4 per capita increase to  the ;." provincial unconditional  grants to municipalities.  This grant given on a per  capita population basis, 1961  census, until the recent announcement in the Bennett gov-  ernfnent budget, netted Gibsons$17,456 and Sechelt $7,808:  on the $16 per capita basis.  By adding $4 per capita to  each amount, as announced in  the budget.speech, this will  . mean. that Gibsons will receive  $21,8107 and; Sechelt $9,760. It is  not expected this will have  much .-effect on reducing mill  rates owing to the inflationary  rise in costs affecting municipal  work:  TIDEWATER MEETING  It will be the third Sunday  in the month, Feb. 20 for the  Tidewater Players. , Their  Robinson Crusoe has been suspended for the time being as  some of their players have had  to be absent, but they are working on a substitute show which  should be equally entertaining.  legal adviser for the B.C. Rural  Municipalities association ruled  that Mr. Procknow was not entitled to use water for other  uses than was made in the original application for water to  serve the Farnham property  A - change of stop signs at  Fletcher and Gower Point roads  and Gower Point and Dugald  roads was ordered by council.

Ill  What has been described as  a young arsonist is haunting Sechelt Elementary school and is  believed to have been responsible for two incipient,fires in receptacles such as waste paper  baskets.  This was reported to the district school board at Monday  night's meeting by Principal W.  L. Reid.  Among other items before the  board was the re-appointment of  B. W. M. Bone as auditor; open  ed tenders for clearance of land,  at Langdale school,, the tender  going to A. E. Ritchey at $3000,  which was $300 below the other:  tender. Congratulations were offered those who helped put on  the successful Science Fair at  Gibsons Elementary School.  Congratulations were also extended to the Future Teachers:  club which had provided fill-ins  at the Elementary School in  Gibsons when regular teachers  were involved in hearing details,  of music classes.  Indians left out  WANTED!  Wanted ��� some 2x2 color  slides of Sunshine Coast for  showing at Tourist Association  booth, Sportsman Show, PNE  grounds, March 11 to 20. Slides'  will be returned to owners.  Please leave at K. Butler Realty or your area's director, no  later than March 1.  Mr. Frank Calder MLA, the  native Indian representative  from the constituency of Atlin,  speaking in the legislative  Throne Speech debate urged  that native Indian affairs should  be administered by the provincial government instead of Ottawa. Tony Gargrave (NDP,  [Mackenzie) agreed with Mr.  Calder. Mr. Gargrave said that  he regretted that welfare plans  and medical grants should vary  from citizen to citizen, based on  race. Mr. Gargrave said he understood this problem was created by the provisions of the British North America Act, and may  be difficult to solve.  Mr. Gargrave felt upset that  native Indians could not participate in the Medical Grants  bill which provides medical coverage for people who pay premiums to the B.C. Medical plan.  The federal government has  been attempting to pay the premiums of native Indians for  those entitled to reduced premiums because of low income.  The provincial government had  refused to permit this. The provincial government stated that  the medical coverage of Indians  is a federal responsibility. This  confusion is disappointing, said  Gargrave.  Mr.  Gargrave  also said the  present  administration of welfare services in the province deprives a citizen of almost all his  means of survival before he is  entitled to welfare payments. A  person cannot apply for welfare  if he has more than $250 worth  of assets. This means that welfare applicants have to deprive  themselves of their car or real  estate or life insurance savings  before they can receive welfare.  This interferes with their rehabilitation, said Gargrave.  DEATHS  COLERIDGE ��� Passed away  Feb. 15, 1966, John Clifford Coleridge of 1640 Abbs Rd., Gibsons  B.C. in his 84th year.

HARVEY FUNERAL  HOME, Gibsons, B.C., directors  perty is leased and part of the  Union real estate deal package,  the board is wondering how it  will stand on the $25,000 purchase price for the site.  If last December's referendum had passed the deal for  the purchase of the Sechelt  school property could have been  completed. As a result of it having to go to a new referendum  and the fact the ownership of  the land might change hands  before voting day .the trustees  expressed doubt that the $25,000  price could be guaranteed.  The December referendum  was defeated through lack of  18 votes to give it the required  percentage to pass. Sechelt voted 73 for the referendum and  63 against.

Arts council to organize  Do you like to sing or tootle  a flute? Do you dabble with  paint or clay, polish rocks or  sew a fine seam? Does your  creativity express itself in  building houses, boats or furniture, making fishnets or baking a cake?  Perhaps you are perfectly  sure you have none, but you  do admire and encourage the  efforts of others. The Sunshine  Coast Arts Council is being organized for you, to foster local  talent, creative skills and craftsmanship and to encourage a  high standard of arts in the  community. Also to conserve  the natural beauty and historical values of the area.  Does this sound too high-  faluting? Its not really, just  your friends and neighbors getting together for their mutual  benefit. .  A public meeting will.be held  to launch the Sunshine 7 Coast  Arts council on Monday, Feb.,  21 in the Roberts Creek Hall,  at 8 p.m. The Vancouver Arts  Council has accepted the invitation to send a speaker.

Unity in the Community gets things done  Store closing hours  The problem of store closing hours is one which a good many  municipal councils are sidestepping these days. It is not because  they are not in favor of accommodating merchants. They find  there is seldom any unanimity among merchants as to the day on  which all should be closed whether it be a full or a half day.  For example a check on the most recent provincial department  of industrial development, trade and commerce print of the hours  for closing in various centres, large arid small, is revealing. Not so  many years ago municipalities were helping out by passing the  necessary bylaw to make such closing imperative. Today there is  a trend which is veering away from enforced closing.  The newly printed list of store closings throughout the province  now shows that 55 centres out of a total of 155 have no bylaw covering store hours. Added to that are 15 who have no closing days during summer months, some extending into September.  The move underway in Gibsons for Monday closing is new only  in the day selected. During the last ten or more years there have  been three or four efforts to get some unformity in hours of closing  to get or replace the normal Wednesday afternoon closing.  There is an ever-growing increase in the number of municipal  councils side-stepping the hours of closi__g issue simply because  there is a lack of unanimity among merchants. There is no reason  to suspect Gibsons council has any other motive in mind when it  throws the issue right back at the merchants and advises that they  make up their own minds without the aid of any bylaw.  We have not seceded!  If ever that shield of isolationism can be .pierced and British  Columbia can come to recognize other areas are part of Canada  besides the Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon areas we on the Sunshine Coast might be able to enjoy the benefits offered by the federal government under ARDA or as it is now known EDA, or Rural  Development Administration.  There appears to be a mental block in provincial government  circles when it comes to defining distressed areas. Comparing the  ;SQrry(?) picture of Kelowna, Penticton and Vemon a look at the  sorrier picture of the Sunshine Coast on a comparative basis would  not leave those areas a leg to stand on in the bandying about of  the word distressed.  A distressed area is where the average income is below a certain level, and the federal government is, through ARDA legislation,  trying to help out such designated areas.  To get the RDA picture straight we quote Hon. Maurice Sauve,  minister of forestry under which this program comes. In the house  of commons the other day he said, so Hansard shows, that up to  March 31, 1965, the province of Quebec shared the most in ARDA  programs and projects. The federal government has spent $11,859,-  000 for 179 projects. Next to Quebec comes Saskatchewan which  spent nearly $7 million.  During the 1962-65 period, Mr. Sauve's speech continues, ARDA  spent $1,163,479 to set up 16 blueberry farms in Quebec. The federal  government contributed half that amount.  Perhaps if one were to work through the department of trade  and commerce and show that the Sunshine Coast area can be used  to add to the provincial economic income, we might .get somewhere  but working through normal channels reveals a block which somehow allows Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon to be classified as a  distressed area. Perhaps we should encourage Mr. Bennett to run  for Mackenzie constituency. Without a doubt Tony Gargrave, MLA  for Mackenzie would gracefully offer to resign, well knowing that  Mr. Bennett would refuse, because he has a good thing going for  him in those supposedly distressed area. Democracy is a wonderful idea but in British Columbia democracy appears to be that those  with the mostest gets most.  by TONY GARGRAVE, MLA  - The report of the Redistribution Commission 7has left  /Mackenzie riding largely undis-.  turbed. The report of H. F.  Angus, chairman; F. H. Hurley  and K. L. Morton, commissioners was filed when the legislature-opened at.. Victoria.. The .  commission 'was established on  August 5, 1965, by Order in  Council. The commission held  34 public hearings.  Slight changes made by the  commission were in the Bella  Coola Valley, Lasqueti Island,  Bowen Island and the industrial  townsite of Woodfibre.  Lasqueti Island which is connected to Vancouver Island by  ferry was placed in the riding  of Nanaimo. Bowen Island was  placed in the new riding of  West Vancouver-Howe Sound  as was Woodfibre.  The new riding of West Vancouver and Howe Sound was  created by adding the municipality of West Vancouver to  the southern part of the old  riding of Lillooet which has  now been eliminated.  ���"��� represented   about 16,750: vot-  > ers. Stricitly y speaking) 7: every  .district having more than ;this  -number of voters { per' member  '' is under-represented, and every  ; district having fewer than this  number is over-represented. But  of course no one expects! mathe-  -.matical precision ..in such, matters.  The commission said the  northern half of the province  and in the Kootenays, the demand for disproportionate representation in the Legislative  Assembly appeared to be inspired in part by fear of the  dominance of the province by  the lower mainland, and especially by Vancouver. The extraordinary belief seems to  exist that the people of the  lower mainland were economic  parasites, producing little  wealth themselves, and then  exploiting the people who live  in  the  under-developed  areas.  The commission stated that  its assignment was to provide  for the proper representation  of people and not of municipalities or acres.  The commission further said  that the emphasis on uniqueness in the over-represented  rural regions has been, or has  become, excessive, and that it  has had bad consequences. In  particular, said the commission, it overemphasized the  Ombudsman character of an  MLA and concealed the importance of fair distribution of  political power.  In the last provincial "election, Mackenzie had 15,452 voters, of which 10,480 registered  voters cast their ballot. The results of the last election were  Gargrave, NDP 4,323; Dawson,  SC 3,920; McCloskey, Lib.' 2,147.  The largest poll in the riding  is Westview with 2,889 registered voters, with the village of  Gibsons second with 1,452 registered voters with Ocean Falls  third with 1,342 registered vot-  ters. ^  In the under-represented electoral districts there were very  few complaints by the voters  that they were being denied  the basic right of citizenship.  In the over-represented districts  there seemed to be little consciousness that a member of  the Legislative Assembly was  entrusted with a definite share  of political power to be exercised in the interests of the  people of the province, \said  the commission.  While great importance was  attached to representation in  the Legislative Assembly, very  little importance appeared to  be attached to power as such,  said the commission pointedly.  The commission added that  it must be constantly borne in  mind that the basic principal  in a modern democracy is that  every voter should have an  equal share of political power  and that, therefore, he should  have a vote equal in value to  every   other  vote.  "It follows that, unless other  considerations require some deviation from the principles of  democracy, every electoral district should comprise the same  number of voters per member of the Legislative Assembly.  In British Columbia there  were 873,140 registered voters  in 1963. As there were 52 members in the Legislative Assembly each member should have  THE COAST NEWS  19 YEARS AGO  In spite of a howling southeaster and pouring rain more  than 50 persons turned out for  the Sechelt VON tea and sale  of work. The event netted about..  $100.  Sechelt District School Board  decided to present a brief to  the minister of highways drawing to his attention the poor  condition of roads.  Sketches for a proposed high  school for Gibsons Landing  were studied by the school  board.  E. J. Shaw of Roberts Creek  reported that with the aid of  a bulldozer in a couple of places  he made a trip from his Roberts Creek home to Gibsons  in five hours.  Sunday, Feb. 16, was the first  birthday of the United Church  year round Sunday  school.  Pender Harbor has a new  bakery shop, Nick Zroback's  Bakery, located in the pass in  Whiskey Slough.  The commission said that it  has  persisted     in     presuming  that every voter wants as much  political power as possible and  is not willing to forego his fair  share of power unless there are  valid reasons for the sacrifice.  Referring  specifically to  the  Mackenzie   riding",   "The   commission   recommends  that  the  present    electoral    district    of  Mackenzie    should    retain    its  present boundaries with the exception ...of    Lasqueti    Island,  Bowen  Island   and  Woodfibre.  The   most   troublesome   point  concerned the position of Ocean  Falls  and Bella  Coola,  which,  rather like   Kitimat,  have   no  close    community    of   interest  with  other points.  "At the commission hearing  in Powell River, there was no  complaint that the absence of  roads in the northern half of  the district made the task of  the MLA excessively difficult.  Indeed, there was evidence of  willingness to include Squamish  and its hinterland."  The commission rejected a  suggestion from certain people  on Vancouver Island that a  substantial portion of the present district of Mackenzie be  added to a portion of the Vancouver Island riding of Comox  north of the  Oyster River.  The commission rejected the  theory of multiple ridings and  endorsed the idea that each  member should have his  own  Canadiana  What was Chautauqua?  Young readers will not remember the big tent, the  wooden benches and the varied  types of entertainment that  characterized the Chautauqua  programs during the summer1  months in hundreds of Canadian communities after the  First World War. The competition of movies and radio and  then the advent of the Great  Depression brought Canadian  Chautauqua to an end. It was  through Chautauqua (the name  was borrowed from the Chautauqua Institution in New York  State, which still operates) that  thousands of Canadians saw  their first play, listened to  prominent speakers or heard  chamber music or the famous  Swiss Bell Ringers. In those  days, when entertainments and  cultural opportunities were  few, people were eager to support a program that could  bring them the famous orators  of the day, a varied program  of musical entertainment and  plays that the whole family  could enjoy. The program was  so" organized that almost every  community could afford it.  riding.77;Commissioner ,. ���; K..;. L.,7.

Nose drops are helpful in the treatment of  adults and children. Most physicians prescribe  them. When you get them from your pharmacy  they are pure and potent. But as soon as you  take out and use the dropper, it is exposed to  virulent germs which may enter the bottle,  multiply and cause a severe infection. Removal  of the protective cap of the spray bottles permits  these germs to collect at the top to infect you.  To avoid this, cleanse the dropper and top of  the bottle with alcohol before replacing it. Examine partly used nose drops and if the contents become cloudy, or a sediment develops,  don't use them.

Monday closing delayed  8 p.m.  SHARP  DOOR PRIZE  LEGION HALL  GIBSONS  Monday closing for Gibsons  stores is still in abeyance. Some  merchants have been contacted  but not all have been canvassed  at press time so no development  can  be  expected  immediately.  Walt Nygren of Walt Nygren  Sales along with Gerry Dixon  appeared at the last council  meeting with a petition asking  for Monday closing. Council decided to leave it up to the merchants to make their own arrangements.  A similar move is underway  at Ladysmith, Vancouver Island  with the following results to  date.  Ladysmith council deferred  decision until next council meet  ing on a change of business  closing hours in Ladysmith when  two apposing petitions were  placed before them at Monday's  meeting.  r- _��������__ ^  Cssoj  PARKINSON'S  HEATING Ltd  Gibsons  ESSO OIL FURNACE  NO DOWN PAYMENT - BANK INTEREST  TEN YEARS TO PAY  COMPLETE LINE OF APPLIANCES  FOR FREE ESTIMATE - Call 886-2728  A petition circulated in Ladysmith calling for an all-day Monday closing of businesses to re  place the present all-day Wednesday closing was signed by 22  merchants who favored the  change to Monday and-two who  were opposed. It was placed  before council to be enforced.  At Monday's meeting, Daryl  Rogers representing Ladysmith  Trading Company and its 10  full time and 5 part time employees appeared before the  council with a counter petition  signed by the Trading Company  staff and customers objecting  to the Monday closing day and  proposing that six-day shopping  be made available to the public.  Speaking in support of the  Trading Comany petition, Mr.  Rogers said Duncan and 'Nanaimo were open six days and Ladysmith should be competitive  with them. He said there will be  65 new stores opening in Nanai-  . mo and all will be run on a six-  day opening basis. Mr. Rogers  said that some Ladysmith stores  break the present Wednesday-  doing by-law and would continue to do it despite a change  of day. He noted that other  "convenient" stores selling ���  wide variety of goods were open  seven days a week, and he expressed the opinion that business should be run for the convenience of customers. In the  case of the Trading company,  the plan was to stagger the employees', days off so that each  one had one day a week and  still retain the nine Monday federal holidays of the year. Mr.  Rogers also said that he thought  businesses should be allowed to  close on a day of their own  choosing.  George Geering of Geerings  Ltd. spoke against the six-day  opening suggested by Mr. Rogers.  Mr. Geering said that most  businesses in a small town  were small and few of them employed enough staff to stagger  days off. It would put them in  PUBLIC    MEETING  to inaugurate the  ARTS   COUNCIL  ROBERTS CREEK HALL ��� Monday, FEBRUARY 21, 1966, 8:00 p.m.  Your Committee urges everyone  interested in this area-wide  project to attend.  Details nominations elsewhere  in this paper.  VANCOUVER ARTS COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE fo speak  the position of the owner not  having a day off or hiring extra  help which many of them could  not afford. Mr. Geering favored a five day week and said it  was immaterial to him which  day to close the businesses.  Alderman R. Stillin expressed  the opinion that the open shopping in Nanaimo which permits  stores to remain open six days  or close when they liked, was  confusing for customers.  Mayor Grouhel stated that the  matter should be discussed at  length but that always if a majority petitioned council with a  request it would have to be met.  She also said that she thought  a public meeting should be called after a by-law.  Alderman J. Cocharane voted  against deferring decision on  the grounds that council had a  majority petition before them  and should be given an answer.

Friday, Feb. 11, at Wilson Creek Hall, 75 people sat  down to an excellent pot luck  supper organized by the Wilson Creek Community club.  Following supper, L. P.

Bing and  Les Chamberlain, directors;  Lance Watson, ways and means  chairman; Mrs. Edith Hellier,  entertainment committee; Bob  Keeley, recreation commission  and Harry Gregory, centennial  committee.

The  club will continue its coffee  parties which are held the last  Friday in each month between  10 a.m, and 1 p.m. and among  the events planned for this year  is a Klondike Night to be held  in the Fall.  There was no lack of talent  for the social hour which followed, Soloist Mrs. D. Stock-  well won enthusiastic applause  for her rendering of The Holy  City.

It was not until midnight, six  hours after the start of the  supper, that the party eventually broke up.

As  has been customary in recent  years the first Friday of Lent,  Feb. 25, has been set aside for  services which will unite Christian women in 150 countries and  areas.  Locally services will be held  in  St.  Bartholomew's  Anglican  Church at 2 p.m. It is expected  that women from practically all  ' Christian groups will participate  In preparing the service to be  followed this year the committee, composed of Scottish women in Edinburgh have kept in  mind the needs of churches  round the world. Africa, for instance, asks special guidance  for those in authority in the face  of that continent's rapid emergence into independence. Asia's  women request intercession for  those who may be confused by  the difference between democracy and totalitarianism. They  pray also for freedom in education and that the growing threat  to individual liberty in all coun- ���  tries will be curbed.  The old and lonely are a prime  concern of the women of the  British Isles and continental  Europe, while Latin American  women have asked that prayers  be said for youth who are questioning their Christian principles  and for the church which must  find new ways to approach  many complex social problems.  Offerings^ made by those who  attend the World Day of Prayer  services are divided among a  number of Christian projects in  many lands with special emphasis in literature. Bible Societies,  refugee services of the World  Council of Churches, Braille  books for the blind and other  areas of Christian work receive  grants.  When Canada first joined the  W,orld Day of Prayer in 1921 offerings for the day were under  $400. In 1965 more than $64,000  was distributed through the Women's Inter-Church Council of  Canada which is responsible for  World Day of Prayer services in  this country.  Halfmoon Bay  By   MARY   TINKLEY  Rev. Canon and Mrs. Alan  Greene were in Vancouver last  week-end to attend the wedding  at Christ Church Cathedral of  Robert Sinclair MacPherson to  Barbara Carol Kennett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Kennett of Vancouver. Robbie MacPherson is weir known in Redrooffs where his mother, Mrs.  Sidney A. McDonald has a  summer home. His family has  been associated with Redrooffs  for many years and it was his  grandfather, Howard P. Stoker,  who founded the Redrooffs Annual Salmon Derby in 1935 and  donated the silver cup which  still bears.his name.  The next meeting of the Lovers of Life League will be on  February 19 th when the project for the afternoon will be  work on the church lily pond.  The Halfmoon Bay auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital had a  good attendance at the first  meeting of the year held at the  Mrs. M. Meuse home on Feb.  7. Officers elected were Mrs.  Ruby Warne, president; Mrs.  M. Meuse, vice-president; Mrs.  G. Rutherford, secretary; Mrs.  Lynne Jorgensen, social convenor and Mrs. Greta Jorgensen, sewing convenor. The first  project planned for this year  is a spring tea and sale of  home  cooking  on April  16.  ON   OPEN LINE  Robert Barker, director of  The Free School, Roberts Creek  who was interviewed on the  Dave Abbott, CKNW radio show  Comment, on Feb. 2, will be interviewed again on the Roy  Jacques CFUN (1410) radio program Sound Off, Tuesday, Feb.  22 at 10 a.m.  Sound Off is an open line show  and listeners may question Mr.  Barker on the program by calling RE 1-9201.  The Roberts Creek Hospital  Auxiliary smorgasbord arid  dance which took place in the  Legion Hall on Saturday turned out to be one of the most  enjoyable parties experienced  in these parts for a long time.  No one wanted to stop dancing  . and go home and Rod Lizee,  guitarist, and Herb Rudolph accordionist, obligingly kept the  music going.   ..-���  Mrs. Stan Rjowland, vice-  president, welcomed the guests  to the appropriately decorated  hall where hung Chinese murals  painted by Mrs. R. McSavaney  in observance of the Chinese  theme. It being the season of  St. Valentine, the decorating  committee, Mrs. A. E. Reece  and Mrs. H. Tibb, adopted a  red and white color scheme,  using white trees a-flutter with  red hearts, and tables decorated with hearts and flowers on  red and white tablecloths.  There was food in abundance  served by Mrs. A. Swanson,  Mrs. C. Beeman and Mrs. R.  Hughes. These three and Mrs.  L. Flumerfelt had also helped  Mrs. K. Baba prepare the  Chinese food. Working in the  kitchen were Mrs. Baba, Mrs.  Rowland, Mrs. McSavaney and  Mrs. M. Forbes.  Husbands of auxiliary members assisted and special thanks  were tendered to Alex Swanson, on the door, and Dave  Marshall, Ron Hughes, Geoff  Thatcher and Mac Baba.  Mrs. C. Beeman, in charge  of tickets, regretfully had to  turn down many requests as  all were sold out well in advance.

PENDER HARBOR  The regular meeting of Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital selected March  26 for the Spring Tea and Nov.  26 for the Christmas Bazaar.  Other auxiliaries and organizations are asked to note these  dates when planning activities  so that several events do not occur on the same date/Tentative  plans were made for the Spring  Tea and committees were appointed to work for it.  A report from the co-ordinating council was read, listing  various pieces of equipment  needed by St. Mary's Hospital.  Mrs. Love and Mrs. Philp, who  are delegates, will take the auxiliary's decision to the next  meeting of the co-ordinating  council.  A letter was read from Pender Harbour Centennial committee asking for support towards the erection of a. cairn  commemorating the pioneers of  the area. After some discussion  it was decided to give further  consideration to this matter at  the next meeting which will be  held a 2 p.m. on March 9, at  Madeira Park clinic.  GIBSONS  At the Feb. 10 meeting of  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary it  was decided to suspend operation for a period of one year.  As the auxiliary has been unable to find all the officers ne-  cesary for this term, and drives  for membership have been unsuccessful, the present executive  felt it had no other course to  follow.  An interim committee made  up of Mrs. E. Inglis, Mrs. D.  JoThnson, Mrs. R. Emerson, Mrs  D. Sleep and Mrs. D. Fyles has  been set up to handle any business, inquiries, etc, that may  arise.  Hospital Auxiliary Cook Books  will be available in various  stores and are beng handled by  Mrs. H. Inglis, 886-2620 and Mrs.  D. Johnson, 886-2044, in Gib  sons and Mrs. D. Fyles, 886-  7714, in Hopkins. These books  are $1.75 each.  A meeting will be called in  February, 1967, with the hopes  there may be enough interest  shown to resume the auxiliary.  Mrs. Macklin  Dublin born  Mrs. Nora Fisher Macklin,  who died on Feb. 6 was born  in Dublin on March 25, 1892.  She was baptised into the  Church of Ireland at Drum  Condra parish church. Educated in Dublin, she attended  Alexandra Ladies' College. In  1909 she emigrated to Canada  with her parents and settled  in Vancouver.  Her business career gave her  opportunities to travel to far  away places and to meet many  interesting people. An appointment with the world renowned  British company of Brunner-  Mond sent her to Kobe, Japan,  where for three years she worked in the office of the financial  agent for the British Industrial  Chemical Company, who was  a former chancellor of the Exchequer in the British government.  Her marriage to James  Arthur Macklin was solemnised  at the Church of St. Francis in  the Woods, West Vancouver.  Fifteen years ago, Mr. and Mrs.  Macklin retired permanently to  West Sechelt where they already had a summer home.  Since that time, Mrs. Macklin  has been a faithful member of  St. Hilda's Church, Sechelt and  nas been active in all branches  of church work. She was highly esteemed and had many  friends. She was particularly  considerate in visiting the sick  and the elderly and was a kind  and thoughtful neighbor. IN  THE  LEGISLATURE  By ANTHONY GARGRAVE  MACKENZIE MLA  As British Columbia moves  through the second half of the  Twentieth Century, it is important that we have a greater  regard for the quality of our  daily lives. To this end it is  important that the consumer be  protected and informed to enable him to avoid fraudulent  practices and make wise selections  in the  market  place.  Inferior goods and unethical  dealers, though in the minority,  should be driven ,- from the  market place so that business  men can improve the quality  of their goods and services, the  person of small means stretch  his income, and the busy man  of affluence obtain good qualiThe common law rule of  caveat-emptor (let the buyer  beware) is not broad enough  to govern business affairs in a  OIL BURNER SERVICE  Phone 886-2422  NEED A CAR?

Quality and not quantity should be the aim of the  market place, and this can be  assisted by minimum rules  worked out in consultation with  business, finance institutions  and the public.  The Dominion Bureau of Statistics reports that total loans  to consumers by finance companies and retailers increased  from $1,968 million in 1957 to  $2,253 million in 1960. This is  big business worthy of a provincial government's attention.  I advocate the following action:  1. A Consumer's council  should be incorporated by an  act of the legislature, but operating independent of government, to aid consumers.  2. Legislate to minimise high  pressure door to door selling  which is sometimes plainly  fraudulent.  3. Government cannot and  should not hold the hand of  every person who enters the  market for retail credit, but  government can and should assist the credit buyer by enacting an interest rate disclosure  act. No contract should be recognized at law which does not  tell the (a) cash price of the  goods, (b) total lump sum cost  of carrying charges, and (c)  rate of simple interest per annum.  4. Conditional sale contracts  should be standarized by law,  as has been done in the case  of bills of lading and insurance  policies. Small loan companies,  finance companies and credit  unions should be consulted as  to the format of these contracts.  Lenders need to be given basic  minimum protection to enable  them to make such loans, but  the consumer needs better pro-  Let beauty go to your head  CUTS  ���    COIFS  ���    COLOR  ���    PERMS  ~ WE CLEAN, SELL & STYLE WIGS  Gibson Girl Beauty Salon  GIBSONS VILLAGE ��� Ph. 886-2120  6       Coast News, Feb. 17, 1966  tection than he has been getting.  5. We should insist on accurate and informative labelling  of all packaged products. The  housewife should not have to  compare grams with ounces in  deciding whether a Giant Eco-  omy Size is in fact more expensive per ounce than smaller packages.  6. Unpaid workers need advice and protection in the collection of wages. This can be  provided by bonding, legal aid  and advice, and increased information to workers on how  to protect themselves.  7.

Hatter, director of the fish  and game branch.  The short-term angler's licence will cost $2 for a three-  day period. It is for the convenience of visitors who are in  the province only briefly.  At. the same time, the year-  around angler's fee for non-resident aliens has been increased from $7 to $10. This will not  effect visitors under the age of  18 years who may still fish all  year for the $1 licence fee. Also unchanged is the licence for  non-resident Canadians who  will still pay $3.50 for the yearlong angling licence in British  Columbia.  Dr. Hatter also announced  changes in the expiry dates of  hunting and fishing licences.  All such licences,, except the  trapper's licence, will in future  cover the period from April 1  to. March 31 of the following  year. Trapping licences will re-  FRI., to TUES.  WATER HOOK-UPS!

The black bear tag-licence  will cost 50 cents. Its main  purpose is to discourage the  wanton killing of bears in non-  agricultural areas. Also, information is needed on the harvest of the species arid with  the extension of the tag system  to include black bears this will  now be possible.  Tag-licences are already required by persons who shoot  every other species of big game  in the province, Dr. Hatter said.

Editor: I believe that all herd  law districts have bylaws as  regards to keeping domestic  animals on your own property,  and not letting them roam around at will destroying people's  gardens.  This does not seem so in our  herd law district. We have horses, cows and pigs roaming around destroying everything in  their path, including fruit trees.  They are also a hazard on the  highway. They continue to disrupt traffic, a few animals were  hit by vehicles. The owner was  charged four times under the  herd law act. The animals are  still roaming around, "destroying  gardens, lately our own strawberry patch.  One wonders why the herd  law was enacted. The police do  not seem to want to do anything  about it.  Surely in a herd law district  we are entitled to protection  from these devastating animals.  It is too much for a poundkeep-  ed to even try to look after the  situation. It is too large an area,  furthermore there is no money  in it.  The   onus  should  be  on  the  owner of these  animals  to  at  least pay for damages without  going to court. Property owners have no recourse.  S. P. Dediluke,  Poundkeeper.  *     *     *  Editor: It. is reassuring to  know that the Sunshine Coast  committee for ARDA are forging ahead. In view of the fact  many other municipalities are  also asking help, some having  top priority it would seem important to accelerate the program.  The point was raised recently that $30 a year was cheaper  than anywhere else. We have  received water bills from North  Delta for $24 and Burnaby for  $26. Both municipalities belong  to the Greater Vancouver Water Board for some time otherwise neither would have been  able to hold the line on ever  rising costs. I understand Sechelt charges $54 a year now  so I imagine the $30 wont cover  a very great improvement in  service in Gibsons. Mr. Paul  St. Pierre's article on Campbell  River shows .dramatically how  a small town can" grow with  a good water supply. Only with  a regional water district can  we hope to prosper and grow  likewise.- ��� I. Green.

Pender soars  (By ALLAN WALLACE)  On Feb. 4, Max Cameron  brought their senior boys bas- "  ketball team to Pender. Max  overpowered Pender 45 to 23.  Top scorers of the two teams  were, from Max Cameron, Jim  Quinn (10) with 11 points;  George Light (11) with 11 points  and Bill Barry (3) with 8 points;  and from Pender, Boyd Bennett  (22), with 6 points; Pat Doyle  (11) with 6 points and Barry  Fenn (24) with 5 points. The  Pender boys played a hard same  but lost.  On Feb. 5, Pender took both ...  school buses with four basketball teams, cheerleaders and  spectators to Brooks. The Junior boys started the games off,  full of vigor, but Brooks overtook them'32,12.  The Junior girls played hard  but also lost to \ Brooks 35,11.  The Senior girls were playing  extremely well and won 24-18.  Nena Sundquist scored 8 points  and Fay Girard 6 points. The  Senior boys played a rough and  tough game and came out on  top of a 29-14 score. Boyd Bennett was top scorer with 8 points  and Pat Doyle came next with 6  points.  Jackie Griffith is a new addition to the cheerleaders and  she is doing exceptionally well.  She cheered at the game with  Max Cameron and also travelled  with the teams to Brooks.  House scores are Haida 72  and Nootka 76. It is a rough and  tough battle this year and it  seems most of the students are  taking part in the competition.  Ted Lee is the editor of the  new school paper. According to  reports this paper could stir up  a lot of controversy.  BRIDGE COLLISION  In a car collision on Granthams bridge on Wednesday of  last week damage estimated at  about $800 was caused to the  cars. Drivers of the cars were  Mrs. Bolger of Port Mellon  and William Nasadyk of Gibsons.  By MARY TINKLEY  On   Feb.   2,   Mr.   J.  Milford  McAllister celebrated his 89th  birthday with a  supper party  in his honor given by his daughter, Mrs; William Swain. Present were   Mr;   and Mrs.  McAllister,  Mr. and Mrs.  Swain,  Mr. and Mrs.    Tag    Nygard,  George and    Buck    Crariswick  and Harry Mills. Mr. and Mrs.  McAllister settled permanently  in Halfmoon Bay last June but  had spent the     previous     six  summers ��� there while still owning their house in Vancouver.  Born in St. John, New Brunswick, Mr. McAllister has spent  most of his life ori the sea. His  first years of fishing were with  a   sail-boat,   which   demanded  great skill and resourcefulness  in     the    treacherous    waters  around New Brunswick. He has  on many occasions, had to haul  down  his  sails,   tie  up  to  his  nets and ride out a  storm in  the Bay of Fundy.  In those days, the fishnets  were knitted by the womenfolk  and Mrs. Clara McAllister was  one of the fastest knitters along  that part of the coast. Around  the turn of the century, Mr.  McAllister spent the winters  serving as a seaman on a  square rigger carrying freight  between  the   east  coast  ports.  He came to the west coast  in 1923 and until his retirement  in 1955 spent the fishing season  each year in Rivers Inlet where  he kept his gilnetter and where  he was employed as net -boss  at the B.C. Packers cannery.  Mr. McAllister recalls how,  in his early days at Rivers Inlet he fished in a 20 ft. sailboat. The procedure, he says,  25 YEAR DINNER  Tall tales about tall timber,  and the mills that convert them  into forest products, will flow  freely ,Friday when 156 forest  industry veterans gather in  Vancouver. The occasion is the  annual dinner of the MacMillan  Bloedel and Powell River limited 25-year club, at which 156  company employees who have  completed 25 years of service  will be honored and presented  with gold watches.  was for the collecting boat to  tow about 20 or 30 fishboats  to they fishing grounds 0 on' a  long tow line. A fisherman  could drop off the tow whenever and wherever he wished,  but he was then on his own for  a week, depending only on oars  and sails. The collecting boat  would call and collect his fish.  Both Mrs. McAllister and  their daughter,' Mrs. Mildred  Swain have worked with him  on the nets in TRivers Inlet,  but with the development of  machine made nets, there were  only repairs to be made and  the edges to be selveged.  At 89, Mr. McAllister enjoys  good health and is alert and  spry. He plays a daily game  of cribbage with his friends  Mr. Mills and the Crans wick  brothers. Recently, owing to  the illness of his wife, he has  taken over some of the cooking  and is . making a pretty good  hand at it. He can even do a  tap dance and he didn't make  any fuss about rowing back to  the Bay from Thormanby Island when the engine broke  down on a recent fishing ex-  pendition.  Mr. and Mrs. McAllister are  looking forward to celebrating  their diamond wedding anniversary in August.
