Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B* C.  GOLDEN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE  HOUSE & MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph.  886-9815  SERVING THE  GROWING  SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Vdwnjer ��0,'Number 12, March 24, 1966.  7c. per copy  TWILIGHT THEATRE  PROGRAM PAGE 8  Fresh approach taken  in area  An  meeting  area water committee  at Sechelt with Hon.  Dan Campbell,: minister of rtiuni-  cipaf^ affairs or sorheorie from  his department present is planned. Date for the meeting would  be left to arrangements with  Victoria officials. This was  agreed upon at Friday night's  meeting of the water committee in the Health Centre, Gibsons.  The meeting heard Wally Peterson recount the water committee delegation's experience  !iri Victoria, being informed that  there was no water at Chapman creek and that; the area  should not be spoiled for the old  people.  Martin J. J-. Dayton, professional engineer who reported on  water possibilities to Gibsons  council in. a brief described by  .water rights branch chief as a  goofd brief, said it was putting  it mildly to say the delegation  was not happy at its reception.  He;added he was disturbed on  being challenged on their survey  of Chapman Creek.  He said the estimated flow of  water of 660,000 gallons per day  in his���:; report to Gibsons council  of Chapman Creek flow was incorrect1 as'the federal government figure estimated a 3,000,-  7000'5'gallon per day flow at a  point higher up. The 660,000 gallon-figure came from a survey  [made at a gravel bed at which  point there could be a consider-  As Iheeom-  ['^Ta:n^d'-~  ed ; 2,000,000 iper: day flow he  thought there was ample water  availably at Chapman Creek. He  still was of the opinion that was  the best source of water for the  area! -f-  Mr. Dayton offered the suggestion in view of the water  rights branch attitude, that a  lesser scheme should be considered which would tie in the  existing water systems on a six-  inch .line controlled by a greater water district organization  which would sell water to existing and future systems. The  areas to be included would be  West Sechelt, Sechelt, Davis  Bay,r; Roberts Creek, Gibsons,  Graiithams, Hopkins, and Langdale^ The water district would  eventually purchase the present  water sources.  ���He set as an.absolute minimum a cost of $825,000 for the  setting, up of the water district  system including six inch piping ", throughout to serve the  areas. Financing would not be a  matter of taxation as it would  be self -supporting from water  delivery costs with financing  averaging: about $95,000 a year  ever a 20 year period. It would  ccst v/r.i.r u"cr." nor; ilci in en  systems about $50 a year. Those  not tied in would pay connection  costs above that amount. A feasibility study to survey possibilities would cost about $3,000. He  estimated there are now 2,000  available consumers with the  probability of there being 2,500  to tie in.  Under this system Gibsons  municipal council would not be  responsible for its source of  water as it would make wholesale purchases for distribution  /through its present system.  Mr. Charles Gooding, Gibsons  village clerk suggested that the  Politics  William Price, of I & S Transport and Chairman of the water committee for Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  in reporting to the chamber at  Monday night's meeting said:  Progress to date of the ARDA  committee and the Sunshine  Coast Water Development District seems to have reached a  stalemate in its efforts to attain  provincial government assistance. The ARDA committee  feels that it has now gone a  full circle in its approaches for  aid. Tit has been politely^ told  that ho help is immediately  available that the facilities for  a survey are directed elsewhere and that it would be  some time before they could  get to us/        ���  "It seems that there are two  ARDA  projects   scheduled   for  the Okanagan that have imme-  date   priority.   The   committee  has.    operated   approximately  ���; -seyenrm^  people involved have"   put    in ;  considerable  work]   They now.  feel   that   the  main   result   of  their efforts is to find out that  no   help   will   be   forthcoming.  This   could   be   considered   an  accomplishment   at   least   we  now have been told where we  stand.  "The delegation from the water development committee received much the same treatment. At the request of the  water rights branch in Victoria  we sent a delegation to meet  with Mr. Debeck. After an exchange of correspondence an  appointment was made. When  the committee arrived Mr. De-  beck was not in his office. We  were then interviewed by Mr.  Sutherland the legal council for  the water rights branch. Basically the reaction was: There  was   not enough  water  avail-  cipalities centred on Sechelt and  Gibsons could be the basis of the  water district but the idea must  be sold to Victoria officials.  - Mr. Fred Holland, Gibsons  maintenance official pointed but.  that a good water supply would  decrease fire insurance costs as  well as give a good supply of  domestic water,  setting up of two district muni-  . able for our proposed plan and  it was not economically feas-  able.  When we persisted in our request for help, to encourage development in this area we were  told "Why spoil it for the old  people."  .... There has since been two  meetings of the Water: Committee, the outcome of which  is a letter has been sent to the  dept. of municipal affairs seeking some possible assistance  in this direction. No answer  has been received to date.  "To summarize: The ARDA  committee is now preparing a  report, outlining its efforts and  the results obtained, a copy of  which will be sent to Premier  Bennett and all other departments and interested parties.  Until some indication of useful  assistance is given or a change  in the political -climate is forthcoming there will be no more  meetings. 7 pyy  ���:��� The'" water' * commiiie'e' '%ill  continue to plug away. Exploring the possibilities of a .new  plan proposed by Mr. Martin  Dayton and will seek further  help from other sources, such  as the dept. of municipal affairs.   .  ��� In my conversation with various people throughout this program the general view seems  to be that unless there are  some changes in our political  status we may go on like this  for years.  Was this necessary?  O Pictures of the perpetrators of this vandalism would make  ihe above scene have a more definite value as a news picture.  How about phoning the Coast News and let us oblige you. Maybe  you could put the stones back on the bank where they belong.  That too could be photographed. Where is it? Behind the Bank  ;of Montreal in Gibsons.  Scholarship council?  I For some years the Gibsons-  ���jSechelt and Roberts Creek  Parent-Teacher association and  ^Parents auxiliary have been offering a yearly scholarship to  an Elphinstone student proceeding to university and have maintained a bursary loan fund to  provide interest free loans to  students who require financial  assistance in acquiring further  education at vocational schools  yor university.  >^s\pthri -the.:., need ,7for Tpost /se-.  condary training becoming  more evident and with more  students wanting to take advantage of such training it is  felt that the scholarship bursary fund for the Sechelt-Gib-  sons area should be increased  and broadened.  To achieve this, it is proposed  that a Scholarship Council for  the area be formed, to include  representatives not only of the  PTA's but of other interested  groups as well. Such a council,  it is anticipated, would in part  co-6rdinatt existing scholarships and bursaries, encourage  the provision bf additional  scholarships and bursaries and  administer the loan fund and  attempt to increase its funds.  To this end a meeting of representatives -of7 all ��� groups in-,  terested as well as any individual interested will be held  in Elphinstone Secondary  School on Thurs., March 31 at  8 p.m. You are cordially invited to have a representative  of your organization present to  assist in the setting up of a  council.  Easter Seals now in mail  The result of lengthy discussion on the water situation was  the passing of a motion by the  Chamber of Commerce members  that the committee be commended for its work and that it  be supported in its further efforts on behalf of the public to  obtain a good supply of water  for the area.  The Sunshine Coast Kiwanis  club are pleased to announce  that for the tenth year they  are sponsoring the Easter Seal  Drive. The area covers the  whole of the Sunshine Coast  plus surrounding areas. Donations to this worth while cause  are to help crippled and handicapped children in British Columbia.  One of the interesting features of the society is the Crip-  BandpStudents perform    Kinsmen dine  Band coming  The internationally famed  Kitsilano Bays' Band, under  the direction of its equally  famous founder, Arthur Dela-  mont, will appear in the auditorium of the high school in  Gibsons, Sat., April 16 at 8 p.m.  Tickets for adults may be obtained in advance from members of the Gibsons and District Central Centennial Celebrations committee, or from  the Arts Council, or many of  the stores and offices in the  area. Students and children 12  and under may pay their admission at the school on the  evening of the performance.  Prices are: Adults $1.50, students $1 and children 50c.  To start this Centennial Celebration with a bang, all are  invited to hoar this grand young  IliCsIlcno Boys' Band.  Mr. Klyne Headley's band students provided an exciting demonstration for parents on Wednesday evening. Parents from  Madeira Park, Sechelt and Davis Bay.brought their children  to'Gibsons to join with the Langdale, Gibsons and Roberts Creek  groups. There were some 60  children in all.  Mr. Headley described the  new approach to teaching music  using the Godaly method which  originated in Hungary. With the  help of eight little boys from  Mrs. Kwasney's grade 1 class  Mr. Headley showed parents the  initial stages in learning beat  and rhythm, accent notes and  phrasing. Those taking part  were Nicky Bergnach, Glen Cramer, Donald Hauka, Terry and  Timmy Hickman, Wayne King,  Gerry McConnell, Walter Nygren and Tony Williams. By  grade 3 these children will be  able to read music and sing at  sight without the help of a piano  or teacher. Glen Cramer gave a  delightful unaccompanied performance of the Sinking of the  Bismark.  Assembled together in one  large band were the trumpets,  flutes, clarinets and drums, 50  waiting to demonstrate their  growing skill. Playing together  t'hey made the rafters echo with  joyful  sound.  Ingrid  Blomgren  and    Mark    English,    Roberts  Creek,  played  a  trumpet duet  and  trumpeters   Stuart  Hately,  John Malcolm  and Ricky Ver-  mette,  Madeira  Park,   William  Passmore   and   John   Rudolph,  Langdale,   and   Mark   English,  Roberts Creek played solos accompanied by Mr.  Headley  at  the   piano.   An   inspiration   to  team up Mark English, William  Passmore   and   John   Rudolph  was  as  rewarding for the  chil  dren as it was for the audience.  Ona  Burnett,   Davis   Bay,   who  has already established a happy  relationship  with  her  clarinet,  played I Love You Truly accom-  panied by ,Mr. Headley.  The eight violinists also demonstrated the techniques they  ara learning to control their instrument. A'; the initial stages  of learning the violin take longer 'hose potential musicians are  not yet ready to play with other  instruments.  Fcr the grand finale the band  played in unison, in two parts  and with Mr. Headley added a  trumpet descant. The drums  were given their chance to show  their prowess.  Parents Who have heard their  children practising were' surprised at the pleasant sounds  produced as they played in concert.  A St. Patricks Day Social  was held in the Kinsmen Hall  on Sat., March 19, when Gibson's Kinsmen branch was host  to Sechelt members, President  Morgan Thompson, W. Takaha-  shi and guests.  Gibson's president, Ken God-  dard was the opening speaker  and Jim Cramer gave the Kin  Grace. Mo Girard lead the Kin  song, Vi Peterson the Kinette  song and M. Thompson gave  the toast to the Queen. Guest  speaker was W. Takahashi who  thanked the Kinettes, on behalf"  of all the Kinsmen, for the  buffet dinner that was served.  An   entertaining   evening   was  BYLAWS TO BE COPIED  Sechelt's council at its meeting Wed., March 16 with Councillor Ben Lang in the chair due  to the absence of Chairman of  council Mrs. Christine Johnston,  voted for copies of all Sechelt  bylaws being reproduced so that  each ccuncillor will have a set.  At I he same time council decided to purchase a photostat type  copying machine to help out in  office work. Clerk E. T. Rayner informed council that as  there were some 70 bylaws and  TC".r o? them three or four typewritten sheets long, the amount  oi work entailed in copying bylaws would cover several weeks.  pled Children's summer camp.

OAPO trips  Wilson Creek hall was decorated with an attractive Irish design when Branch 96 O.A.P.O.  held its general meeting on Mar.  17. Plans were discussed for a  charter bus trip to the Cloverdale rodeo on May 21 and an  afternoon bingo to raise money  for the senior citizens' housing  scheme. Canon A. D. Greene reported that an application had  been made for incorporation as  a society whose object will be  the building of homes for elderly citizensj He advised that the  legal part of the business was  now in the hands of Mr. Tom  Campbell, a Vancouver lawyer.  As was appropriate on such  a date, the entertainment which  followed the meeting was Irish  in character. A Little Bit of  Heaven was sung by Mrs. Dorothy Stockwell; Mr. Charlie  Brookman entertained with humorous stories and poems and  music was supplied by Mrs.  Charles Evans, Mrs. M. Livesey,  Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Baker and  Roily Reid. Members who have  not paid their 1966 dues are urged to do so as soon as possible.  Speed  reduce  To alleviate a traffic menace  on Sunshine Coast Highway a  slow-to-35 mph sign has been  placed at the Gibsons bound  traffic lane approaching Pratt  Road. This was reported at  Monday night's dinner meeting  cf the Chamber of Commerce  in the Welcome Cafe dining  room.    .  Walter Nygren, marine committee chairman, reported that  the reef in vicinity of Gospel  Rock had been reduced by the  Essington when it was in this  area recently.  Kay Butler reported on Tourist association operations in an  area  booth  at  the  Boat  show  in Vancouver in which she took  a major part in presenting tp  the public pictures and information about this  area.  A  great  many  were   interested   in   the  new circle tour available with  a ferry from  Powell  River to  the Comox area.  More people  as a result know  of the  Sunshine   Coast  than ever before,  she added. (More detail on this  will  be  presented next week).  Tony Gargrave,  MLA,  spoke  on  present. day  area   troubles  which had developed as a result   of   growth.   The   problem  he   advised  was  in  municipal  organization and a long range  study  group should be set up  to  go into  the various angles  such as the type of municipal  area   that would  be best,  village, town or district municipal-  ���ity_�� _He_.favored . the  improvement  'district  where  the  area  could   get  financial  help   with  its  bend  issues being  guaranteed by the government.  Water close  The West Sechelt Waterworks  District system is fast nearing  completion and in just a few  days, possibly by April 1, will  be available for general use, at  which time operating expenses  begin.  The day water is made available the district is required to  pay in advance for the bulk  water it will use. Therefore on  this same day property owners  o. home owners who have contracted to become consumers  will be billed in advance for the.  three months foll>wing the day  the water is turned on regardless of whether or not ihey have  rr.coe all the necessary changes  needed to use wale.: from the  new system.  Permits to connect are available free by contacting the trustee secretary. A representative  will inspect trenching, piping  and turn on the water. If further information is required,  contact Mrs. Eva K. Hayward,  trustee   secretary,  885-9755.  Films ended  The Sunshine Coast Arts council presentation of four National  Film Board films about Canada  was well received in the communities of Pender Harbour, Sechelt and Gibsons. This was a  fascinating group of outstanding films, showing some of Canada's most magnificent, virtually unexplored scenery in the valley of the Nahanni River.  The   particular   problems   of  the  younger  generation   of  Indian peoples who belong to neither the white society nor the  culture of their elders were sympathetically   portrayed    in    the  Circle   of  the  Sun.   The  beginnings of the Shakespeare festival at Stratford, Ontario, made  an exciting documentary and the  beautiful photographic record of  Eskimo  life  left  an  increasing  admiration for these people who  conquered    their    environment.

Unify in the Community gets things done  Serious growing pains  Expansion of Gibsons municipal boundaries is now a live issue before Gibsons councillors. The idea has been talked about  in the past but with there being no immediate pressure involved  nor any help from town planning officials it was left until such  time as necessity became pronounced.  It can hardly be said the necessity is immediate. It Is not  quite that serious but something must be done to get things started now that there is a different type of municipal regulation  covering such "expansions. The provincial department of municipal  affairs is now anxious that municipalities expand and also where  possible to form district municipalities.  For example a district municipality for Gibsons could extend  from ��� Port Mellon to say the Girl Guide Camp as a boundary  and that another would extend from the Guide Camp to Halfmoon  Bay. The one would have Gibsons as its core and the other Sechelt. At the same time the municipal councils of both villages  would operate as such and also have representation on the district municipal council.  As regards Gibsons desire to expand the trend of discussion  is that if Gibsons takes in the area to Henry and Pratt roads  down to the waterfront and move towards Granthams on the  north end and expand westwards to take in Reed road it would  double Gibsons population:  Councillors explored the area on a map and agreed without  any finality that such expansion would perhaps be advisable.  However with the expectation of the arrival of a town planning  engineer, his advice would be sought before discussion would  move in any specific direction.  Residents of Henry, Pratt and Reed roads should not become  too enthusd over the prospect because before the final stage  of any expansion occurs there might be changes which would  either modify or expand the area under consideration. At least  council's talk on expansion has taken another step towards eventual realization.  f  Spotlight on libraries!  Your public library will come out of its quiet and secluded  shell and find itself well in the spotlight for at least one week, ���  from March 26 to April 2.  To thousands of people, the public library holds almost the  status of a university. To many men, women and children' of  limited education, their library card can be their key to the  learning they could otherwise not afford, learning that is available in thousands of dollars worth of valuable books, free for  generous periods to the students or researcher.  The intellectual is not the only one to benefit from the library shelves. There is much for the person who seeks relaxation and the therapy of humor. The dreamer who cannot afford  to travel to those faraway places can settle down in his armchair and visit via the printed page.  For the man or woman planning their life after retirement,  there are books on hobbies, handicrafts and suggestions for the  leisure days.  Parents, relatives and friends who would like to start a youngster on his literary road without the aid of comic strips, would  be well advised to have a talk with the local librarian ��� librarians are very understanding of chidren and can usually prescribe  the books to fit the child's years and tastes ��� as well as the  financial status of the donor. Visit your public library often.  Minute message  g^  WHY GO TO  CHURCH?  Why should I bother going  to church? I like sleeping in on  Sundays. There are too many  hypocrites. I can live a good  life at home. Have you ever  heard these   feeble  excuses?  We all agree to the necessity  of a systematic schooling for  mental education. Attendance  is compulsory. We continue to  send our children even though  they may prefer to sleep in.  The fact that some children  fail to apply themselves academically does not cause us to  pull out our children.  Why then should not the same  reasoning apply to church attendance? Our spiritual and  moral education is equally important. The slackening morals  of our country have become  cause for national concern.  The truly Christian church  has always warned that men  are by nature inclined to evil.  Only the transforming power  of God in a person's life can  alter that nature. This is what  the Christian church teaches.  This is why we need to go to  church.���Pas-tor J. Anonby, Gibsons Pentecostal Tabernacle.  The passengers on the morning bus from the Sunshine Coast  look down from the Upper Levels as they approach West Vancouver and see the many storey-  ed apartments rising pink, blue  or white on that waterfront, and  beyond   the   green   expanse   of  Stanley Park see the  complex  of tall new buildings over English Bay taking form so rapidly  that they resemble a new species of sky-reaching mushrooms.  This  most modern living accommodation   has   given   birth  both to a new concept of living  and of law. There has recently  been issued by the Real Estate  Institute of British Columbia a  short and well-written brochure  dealing with new principles of  ownership  and  occupancy now  , necessary to meet these developments,    and    explaining    the  changes proposed in  the Land  Registry   Act,' now   before   the  Legislature in Victoria,  in  the  new "Strata Titles  and Condominium Act."  Up to now title to real estate  covered surface ownership  against which charges like leases and rights to purchase were  registered as encumbrances.  This surge to 20 to 40-storey  apartments has given .rise to the  concept of three - dimensional  space occupied by an apartment  any number of storeys above  the ground floor, and the entitled owner will be able to deal  with this rectangle of space as  if it were on the ground.  This is to be done by filing a  ground plan in the name of the  actual owner of the ground lot.  Against this will be registered  the various rights of access, use  of garden and parking space,  and the other amenities shared  by the individual apartment  owners all the way up. There  will also be a register of the  owners of these apartments  and to each apartment space  will be annexed its proportional  right to these amenities and also  its proportional obligation for  their maintenance.  This is what is to be called  "Strata Titles Condominium;'*  strata meaning layers, and condominium meaning ownership in  common. This system has been  adopted in Australia, and our  system of land-holding is based  on the Australian Torrens system, and it is also being tried  out in a number of the individual states in the U.'S.A. A somewhat similar method has been  in use in Scotland for 100 years.  The ownership, or leasing Of  one of these apartments is expensive, and the builders of  these blocks have the theory  that they will appeal to executive types, and to elderly couples who have raised their fam  ilies in the suburbs, and now  wish to move back to the centre of things.  I had the opportunity recently of visiting a lady in one of  these new high-rise apartments.  There is an underground car  park, from which there is an  automatic elevator to an apartment tastefully designed witn. up  to the '.lruhutc facilities. Ir did.  seem, though, that while everything was efficient, the building just missed something that  gives the sense of home. My  hostess was very happy with  her apartment, buf agreed that  it was much easier for a woman  to adjust to this new way of life,  and that it would be difficult for  a man to get used to a life in a  box half-way between heaven  and earth, like Mohammed's  coffin, with no animals and no  garden.  Already , legend forms on the  life of tomorrow. One tells of  an elderly gentleman in a state  of slight intoxication, returning  to his high-rise, entering the elevator and pushing the button  for the 42nd floor. He was silently and swiftly uplifted, and  when it came to the 42nd floor,  to his surprise, but not concern,  the elevator seemed to keep on  going up. After a considerable  time it gently came to a stop  and the occupant stepped out  into a hall the replica of his hall  on the 42nd floor, but from the  appearance of the receptionist,  who had a halo and keys, our  friend correctly surmised that  he had 'arrived.'  It was 'St. Peter who was on  deck, and after welcoming the  new arrival, enquired if he could  show him around. The two of  them looked at suites exactly  like what there were away down  below, and our friend began to  think that this was going to be  a grim way of spending eternity,  when he noticed Peter, as he  quietly opened a door to a  suite, put his finger on his lips,  and cocked his eyebrow to indicate quiet. The open door re  vealed a considerable number  of self-satisfied people seated in  : meditation on either side of a  long table. Peter as quietly  closed the door and with a trace  of a smile said: "These are the  True Testifiers. They think that  they are the only ones up here."  Joking apart, what a change  has taken place in a lifetime at  these two locations. In 1011  Ambleside, in West Vancouver,  was a tented town of summer  camps, and long before that, in  1896 when we lived there, there  was nothing at all at English  Bay. It makes one stop and  wonder what changes the next  60 years will bring. There are  some of us to whom this life in  a bee-hive has no appeal. The  Church union opposed  The Rupert's Land News says  a national Anglican newspaper  will make its debut in Winnipeg shortly.  Called The Communicator,  the monthly tabloid will have  an initial press run of 10,000  and will be edited and published by Rev. Maurice Hardman.  Mr. Hardman, former editor  of the Rupert's Land News,  resigned that position in December over a split with church  officials regarding union with  the  United  Church  of Canada.  Staffed by correspondents in  each major Canadian city, The  Communicator will "oppose the  principles of union documents  as insufficient reason for union  between Anglicans and any  other church."  Mr. Hardman, a polio victim  confined to his bed for the past  eight years, said his eight-page  newspaper had received "considerable" financial backing  and hoped to cover all current  church problems.  "These include the new  theology, new curriculum,  group dynamics, rights of individuals in the church and the  ciuestion of secularization of the  state."  Mr. Hardman said The Communicator would encourage  wide-open debate.  "We will print, without editing, letters in opposition to our  own editorial policy. These letters will be emphasized and  make the paper a real, free  debating medium."  "Initially,   it   will   be   distri  buted personally by friends  across the country. We'll provide bundles for parishes and  clergy and ask that they be  handed out free to those people  that may be interested."  19 MRS 11.11  THE  COAST NEWS  Better wharf facilities for Roberts Creek have been promised by the federal authorities,  wider and of a more permanent  nature. ;  Wells dug in Madeira Park  area were striking v/ater at 30  and 35 foot depth.

J. Lissiman who lived in that house  at one time, have produced  some old bills covering quite a  bit of lumber.  The wood came from the  Gibsons Landing Lumber company which was run by A. and  G. R. Cross and was situated  near the present Gibsons Boat  Works building. The date on  the bills covering purchases  was Sept. 20, 1912 and here are  some of the prices:  1,000 ft. 8" shiplap    $17.00  1,000 ft. - B.C. Rustic   $32.50  8M No. 1 shingles       $22.40 ���  14  18  ft.   2x4 $ 7.30  Then came varied, pieces and  lengths with 2x4, 2x6 and 2x10  at $15 per thousand ft. ���In all  excludng the shingles there  were more than 4,000 pieces  of timber, from eight foot to 24  ft. lengths.  Today's, dollar compared to-  values in 1912-13 is worth about  39 cents or may be less. When  one recalls that in 1912 a week's  salary would buy a man's suit  of clothes, it still takes about  one week's salary to buy the  same suit today. However today the suit buyer has a wider  range of cloth and patterns  from which to make his selection. Anything beyond a blue  serge suit in 1912 was in the  luxury class.  A phone call to Gibsons Building supply brought the information that comparable 1,000 ft.  of shiplap today would cost $52 "  and 1,000 ft. of B.C. rustic  would cost about $132.  sg!        i]s        %:  Tokyo house builders are  eyeing the growing teenager,  the Japan Reports bulletin  says. For the past 40 years  Japanese teenagers have been  growing progressively taller  and heavier than their parents.  Since 190O the average height  of 14-years-old has jumped by  some five inches.  To meet this trend, schools  are being equipped with larger  desks and seats. If this trend  continues, it is anticipated the  building industry will introduce  new construction specifications,  raising the height of doorways  and ceilings.  Attributed to higher living  standards,, the changing height  and weight pattern became  most marked during the 1950-  65 period. While all age groups  showed increases, 14-years-old  boys recorded the biggest  weight gains with an over-all  20 percent increase during the  15 year span.  The study, conducted by the  Ministry of Education also revealed that Japanese youth, especially male, are becoming  increasingly long legged.  v. -V ����_���    ���  * ��_- --^ *j��  George Washington, only  president of the U.S. who n^ver  lived in the White House, laid  .the cornerstone for the building on October 13, 1792.

This is the way John  Fisher, commissioner    of    the  Centennial commission characterized the support of the Canadian population to that aspect  of the Centennial celebrations  for 1967.  Speaking in Ottawa before  the Chartered Institutes of Secretaries', which groups leaders  of the business, finance and  governments, he referred to  criticism that the Centennial  Commission and the provinces  are erecting cultural mausoleums for mice. He released the  latest figures showing the preference .under the federal-provincial cost-sharing programs  for permanent Centennial projects :  Parks 282.  Recreations structures 271.  Community Centres 144.  Recreational  areas  141.  Municipal Buildings 115.  Museums and Art Galleries  36.  Libraries 79.  Restorations 17.  Memorials and monuments 13.  Town clock and clock tower 3.  Theatres and Performing Arts  Centres 3.  Recalling that together the  Centennial Commission and the  provincial administrations have  so far contributed 25 million  dollars to these permanent memorials, Mr. Fisher stressed  that the municipalities, together have on their own contributed Siy2 million dollars, or more  than the joint federal-provincial  /effort.  Mr. Fisher added that up to  date, 1,397 local projects have  been approved and another  thousand remain to be ratified.  Projecting these figures, the  Centennial Commissioner added  that once all projects are approved, this will mean a total  expenditure by the three levels  of government in excess of $100  million. "Think," he suggested,  "of the tremendous boost to the  economy, apart from the net  benefit of this expenditure to  the municipalities involved,  durable works which will commemorate the 1967 celebrations."

You don't have to overheat some rooms  to make others warm enough to live in. Maintenance costs? Practically nil - because there's practically  nothing to go wrong. Depreciation? Lowest of all because electric equipment normally lasts much longer.  Operating costs? At today's low rates, electric heating costs little more than other automatic systems.

Stores pledge  is big help  Treasury officials at the Three  Universities Capital Fund were  surprised by a pledge from Kelly Douglas & Company Ltd. for  $10,000 after having received a  $50,000 from the company earlier.  Company Secretary-Treasurer  CM. Humphrys explained the  extra $10,000. The $50,000 gift  had been made on behalf of the  parent company, Kelly Douglas  & Company Ltd., and its subsidiaries, Nabob Foods Ltd., Super  Valu Stores Ltd. and Dixon Importing Ltd. However scattered  throughout the province are 47  independent Super Valu store  operators. When they heard  about the gift they decided to  take a hand as well.  - The independent store operators pledged a total of $10,000,  sent it into Kellly Douglas head  office in Vancouver and increased the company's overall pledge  to $60,000. The Gibsons independent store operators are Keith  Wright and John Matthews at  Super Valu store No. 23.

Maclnnes as Director of Public  Relations in the British Columbia Telephone Company is announced by J. Ernest Richardson, Company President and  Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. M_clnnes graduated from  the University of British Columbia in 1950 with a Bachelor  of Applied Science degree in  mechanical engineering and  began his career with B.C.TEL  in June of the same. year. By  June 1955 he was Senior Engineering Assistant and the following year he became District  Outside Plant Engineer. He became Safety Director in 1958.  Since August 1963 he has  served as Coastal Division  Engineering and Construction  Manager.  He is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of B.C. and of the  American Society of Mechanical  Engineers.  By ANTHONY GARGRAVE  MACKENZIE MLA  One of our good debaters in  the Legislature-is Alex Macdonald, MLA (NDP - Van-East).  He has class, as the phrase  goes. Mr. Macdonald usually  manages to squeeze a quote  from Ibsen or Shakespeare into  his speeches. Recently he dealt  with a more mundane subject  in legislative debate. He was  concerned about children's  dental care. This is what he  said:  Parents with young children  are caught up in a spiral of  rising dental costs. High dental  bills mean that families cannot,  afford preventive measures,  such as cleaning and fluoride  painting, and that means higher bills later on.  It is time this legislature set  up dental clinics where all elementary school children would  receive full dental services.  Take an actual Vancouver  family, with four young chil- ���  dren. Their dental bill is over  $300 a year. Not being able  to afford this, they have to  cut back on cleaning and  fluoride for the children.  The last health branch report found that the average  seven year old had one third of  the deciduous teeth attacked by  decay. All but seven percent  of the 15 year olds needed dental work.  I applaud the dental program  of the Vancouver metropolitan  board of health. It helps in examinations of pre-school children, and dental care in Grade  I. It is fine as far as it goes,  but it goes no real distance at  all.  I am not talking now about  dental bills of adults, although  they seem high and inconsistent. The mother of this family  paid $9 for a 5 minute examination only. But these costs should  be part of a medicare program.  It is children's dental clinics  I am after.  I am not attacking the soft  drink and candy business, although tempted to do so, for  it is sugar in the saliva for  hours on end that ruins many  ' a child's teeth. What v/e need  is more sugarless gum on the  shelves, and sugar-free pop.  Nor am I attacking the dentists, who have the last howl  anyway. I think their campaign  for fluorides deserves high  praise. But it is as plain as  my bicuspid that treatment of  children in dental clinics, employing dentists, nurses and  dental- hygenists, would save  dollars all round.  SHAKES RECOVERED  RCMP are investigating the  theft of about $280 worth of cut  shakes ready for shipment and  owned by Roy Dean. He had  been working in the Port Mellon district. Police have recovered the shakes but are still  exploring the theft.  Ether was first used as a  painkiller before an operation  in 1842.  RED CROSS  IS ALWAYS THERE  WITH YOUR HELP  The basis for school clinics  is there to build on. The board  of health in the Lower Mainland, and health units elsewhere do valuable preventive  and educational work, but  should not be restricted to  Grade I pupils only. And dental  clinics must be set up for full  dental care of all young children, financed by federal, provincial   and   municipal  grants.  Homes for aged  Approval of a $96,000 federal  government loan to assist in the  construction of a housing project for elderly persons in  North Vancouver, is announced  by the Hon. John'R. Nicholson,  minister responsible to parliament for Central Mortgage and  Housing  corporation.  Provided under the National  Housing Act, the loan will be  made to Kiwanis Senior Citizens Homes limited, a company sponsored  by the  North  Vancouver Kiwanis Club. The  loan will be repayable over a  period of 50 years with interest at 5% percent per annum.  The project, at St. Patrick's  Avenue and East 1st Street,  will consist of 30 bachelor units.  Housing rents will be $40 per  month for 12 units that will be  provided with balconies and $37  per  month  for the remainder.  The province will provide a  capital construction grant of  $57,000. This is the sixth loan  to be made to the company,  for a total of 128 units.  /&Mi&3k  ���m��m  Payroll Sheets  with cumulative totals  and deductions  COAST NEWS  Ph. 886-2622  wr ,vt?r,5!?i~w" >���-  BRITISH COLUMBIA MEDICAL PLAN  ANNOUNCES  APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED  ENROLLMENT PERIOD MARCH 1-31, 1966  FOR COVERAGE COMMENCING APRIL 1, 1966  NEW LOW RATES Applicable to New and Present Subscribers  Basic rate for ��� .

The land on which the water  will be used is Lot 6, Block 44,  west part of District Lot 1316,  Plan 7305 N.W.D.  A copy of this application  was posted on the 72nd of February, 1966, at the proposed  point of diversion and on the  land where the water is to be  used and two copies, were filed  in the office of the Water Recorder at Vancouver, B.C.  . Objections to this application  may be filed with the said  Water Recorder or with the  Comptroller of Water Rights,  Parliament Buildings, Victoria,  B.C., within thirty days of the  first date of publication of the  application.  Date of first publication is:���  March 24.  March 24, 31, 1966  awrevam  RED CROSS  IS ALWAYS THERE  WITH YOUR HELP  +  Gibsons new building bylaw  received three readings at last  Tuesday night's meeting and  has been sent to the department of municipal affairs in  Victoria for approval before  final reading is given, making  it law.  This bylaw worked over by  Councillor James Drummond  and Clerk Charles Gooding is  based on the federal government National Housing vact  usually referred to as the NHA  and is administered by the central Mortgage and Housing administration. The NHA is the  construction industry's bible  and it is also accepted as a  policy guide by most municipalities.  Changes from the old building bylaw in the new one concern the issuing of permits.  Under the new bylaw two copies in duplicate . ,are needed  covering specifications and  scale drawings of the building  showing dimensions of buildings, proposed use of each room  or floor area, dimensions of  land on which it is to be built  and the grades of streets and  sewers abutting the land.  The new bylaw defines the  powers of the building inspector with greater clarity and he  can direct tests of materials,  construction methods and foundation conditions at the expense  of the owner unless sufficient  evidence of adequacy is presented, where such action is necessary to meet regulation require-  ,where such action is necessary  to meet regulation requirements. Records of such tests  must be kept and made available for inspection as required.  There is a new schedule of  fees. The new rate will be $5  for the first $3,000 or less of  the estimated value of work  covered by the permit; $2 per  thousand thereafter up to an  estimated value of $35,000 and  50 cents for each $1,000 or fraction in excess of $35,000. The  estimated value of the work  shall be determined by the  building inspector.  There will be a fee of $5 for  *        . *  moving a building and a $5 fee  for the demolition of a building  of part of a building. Each'  ���permit will be issued with the  proviso that work will start  within three months; construction must not be discontinued  for a period of not more than  six months and exterior finish  must be completed within one  year of the date of the permit.  Suitable entrances and exits as  necessary must be provided  with culverts installed either  standard galvanized or concrete  to conform with existing drainage. The culvert is purchased  by the owner and installed by  or under supervision of the  municipality.  Written approval of the building inspector must be obtained  *  Hours, store problem  Gibsons municipal council  wants to have removed from  its jurisdiction any responsibility of setting store hour closing and will present a resolution to that effect at the September convention of the Union  of B.C. Municipalities.  Councillor James Drummond  moved and Councillor Sam  Fladager seconded the motion  to which 7 council agreed. Comment during discussion revealed that there was a growing  trend for municipal councils to  leave the problem of settling  closing hours up to the merchants themselves. Experience  in Gibsons during the last ten  years when three or more efforts have been made to get  uniformity, the most recent effort last month to get all day  Monday closing, have met with  failure. As a result council prefers to leave such matters to  the merchants. At present the  provincial law requires Wednesday afternoon closing unless  the municipal council decrees  otherwise.  A letter from Dr. J. D. Hobson, for the Medical Clinic suggested construction of a Medical Clinic on the municipal lot  at Gower Pt. and Winn rds.  was discussed and agreed to  in principal but that the matter  of a lease or purchase payment to the village and other  matters be discussed with  council. The proposed building  would be near the Health Centre.  An invitation from Elphinstone Museum society suggesting a tour of the museum was  accepted. Letters from the  minister of lands and forests  and MacMillan Bloedel covering  logging and logging leases on  Mt. Elphinstone and in connection with the watershed in that  area, were tabled for a report  on them at the next meeting.

Having received no tenders  for the removal of the old Gibsons home next door to the  former Coast News office, council decided to leave to the firemen the job of demolishing the  building. Council learned that  because the deadheads over  which it had previously complained, were not in shipping  channels the department of  public works was not involved  in removal of them unless circumstances were exceptional.

We want the interest of responsible citizens from Port  Mellon to Egmont.  The second is that from such a membership, the Society members will have  a far bigger number of responsible people from whom to elect the members of  the Hospital Society Board of Trustees.  And third, that there will be ,a Society of widely representative members  who should and could discuss ALL the problems related to hospitalization of our  residents. Such a Society should discuss the big problem of Continuing Care m a  Unit separate from from the present acute general hospital.  Fourthly, any Society needs money with which to carry out its program.  A minimum membership of 1000 should be the goal and this would give the  Society $2000 working funds. Costs like the rental of Halls for annual or other  public meetings are paid from this fund. Delegates to Hospital Association Meetings are paid their expenses from this fund. Secretarial supplies are paid from1  this fund.  If is the duty of everybody in the area to_belong fo a Society*whose great  concern is proper hospitalization for all. It should not be left to a handful to' carry  the burden. We are all involved.  REV. CANON ALAN D. GREENE  FURTHER INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:  Port Mellon, MrsT N.
