The Public Utilities Commission has backed up Gibsons municipal council on its refusal to  supply water for a 20 room motel on the basis that the proprietor first had no right to act in  the manner he did, and secondly  that he would have to tie in with  a water main to get the water  needed instead of to a domestic  Vz inch waterline.  The PUC in a letter to the  law firm representing Norman  Procknow of Peninsula Hotel  Ltd., a copy of which was sent  to council, pointed out to Mr.  Procknow that a Vi inch pipe  was not sufficient water supply  and that he has the right to tie  in to the nearest water main, at  his own expense. Mr. Procknow  left the meeting with the words  that he would have to haul water until he could arrange with  PUC to,hold a public hearing on  his application sometime in  June.

This  turned away from it but the majority were able to stomach the  rather delicate operation which  resulted in the removal of a  small speck of metal. The resulting moral was that one  should wear safety :. glasses  where such a mishap could occur.  Three doctors were present  to view the (film and operation.  They were Drs. E. J. Paetkau,  J. D. Hobson, and Peter Myle-  chreest. Mr. Watts reported an  alarming increase, 43 percent,  in the number of eye injuries  since 1961.  year's start had been a good one  and,he hoped there would be a  strong and sincere effort to reduce accidents. Be sure newcomers become well acquainted with safety rules, he urged.  On safety matters there is no  fence between .labor and man-  . agement, both are on the one  team.  Mr. Andy Knowles representing union local 297 said that on  safety there was no quarrel between labor and management.  There was a common aim to  reduce accidents at the mill, he  said.  A farewell party  At a farewell party for Cpl.  arid Mrs. Nelson at the Rod  and Gun Club on Friday last,  they were presented with a gift  of a set of china from the 70  people present and others who  were unable to attend. Corporal  Nelson, in charge of the Sechelt R.C.M.P. detachment, is  being transferred to North Vancouver.     ...  A pewter mug was presented  him by the Gibsons R.C.M.P.  Mr. Norman Rudolph, on behalf of Canadian Forest Products Ltd. presented him with  an attache case in recognition  of his outstanding services to  the community of Sechelt. Mr.  Rudolph said that there were  many sides to Ray Nelson. One  side was the law enforcement  officer and other sides were  the humanitarian, the social  worker and the fellow who considered people.  A midnight supper was served by SyJvia Jackson, Dianne  Harris, Donna Kenny, Betty  Ann Ehler and Vera Nelson,  who were also responsible for  the organization of the party.  The enthusiastic and whole  hearted response they received  v/as a tremendous tribute to the  respect in which Ray and Beverley Nelson were held by the  community which they had  served so faithfully.  COLLEEN DAY FRIDAY  The UCW Colleens of Gibsons  United Church are all set for  their Shamrock Tea on Friday  starting at 2 p.m. Arrangements  are in hand to keep the leprechauns out of the kitchen.

Mr. Fisher came to Granthams five years ago and took  ,over the store which also con  tains a post office. The store  will be closed all day Thursday  the day of the funeral service  which will be held at 10 a.m. at  St. Helen's Church, North Surrey. Cremation will follow. The  Surrey Funeral Home is in  charge.  He leaves his wife Elinor and  daughters Mrs. Shirley Szabo,  and Mrs. Connie Wilson; sisters  Julia Graf, Catherine Hem-  stock and Francis Fox, and brothers Bud and John, and a grand  son.  Mr. Fisher, besides being a  member of various committees  working for the area, was past  president of the Granthams  Landing Property Owners association.  School staff recommends a  shorter lunch break for the intermediate grades. This would  allow extra time in the afternoon for sports, hobbies, drama,  music, etc. A trial period of  three months has been suggested.  Tlie school board, PTA and  Kiwanis are working together  to ensure a maximum vote at  the poll. It is. hoped to have the  tape of the Elementary School  Choir s CBC broadcast available for replay.  Booth lures  By the time this appears in  print  more  than 50,000 people  , will have visited the Sportsmens  show at the PNE Agrodome and  a good number of them have  shown considerable interest in  the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association booth, Kay Butler,  Gibsons representative at the  booth, reports.  The varied slides loaned to  show at the booth have drawn  out many questions from onlookers who have stopped to listen .  to the commentator explain the  pictures flashed on to a screen.  More than 2000 brochures about  . the area have been handed out  and the triangle trip through  Langdale to Powell River and  Comox to Nanaimo or Victoria  has created considerable interest, Mrs. Butler reports. Many  and varied were the questions  regarding the Sunshine Coast  and possibilities of a scenic trip  were explored by numerous  ���questioners.  APRIL 15 TEA  At its March 7 meeting, Roberts Creek Legion auxiliary set  April 15 as the date of its spring  tea. There will be a rummage  sale on May 20, Mrs. Olive  Blomgren was initiated as a  member. Thanks was offered  those who had supplied coupons  but more are required. The next  n:ceting will be on ApriJ 4,  lor Feeney offered the opinion  that as' newer' sections of the  village had paved roads it was  time the older sections received consideration. Council argued that as it had been included  in the roads budget at a cost of  $700 that he should go ahead  with it.  Council reviewed its feelings  about expansion of the village  boundaries and the area given  consideration was from the  Granthams end of Reed Rd. and  along Reed Rd. to Henry Rd.  then along the highway to Pratt  Rd. and down to the water. Possibilities and probabilities were  mulled over with the result the  problem was left open for future  discussion when town planning,  zoning and water propositions  were further advanced than  what they are at present. Councillors agreed that all these  items were involved.  Diamond  wedding  Mr. and Mrs. James E. Leith  of Francis Peninsula celebrated their Diamond Wedding anniversary Monday, March 14  surrounded by members of the  family and friends from Vancouver and Pender Harbor area.  Mr. Leith is 80 years old and  Mrs./Leith,, -84^ and-both   re-  -ceived    -felicitatiorts ' directly  from.their many friends or by  phone, letter and telegram.  One letter from Tony Gargrave MLA read: Mr. J.7 L\  Wallace the deputy provincial  secretary has informed me that  on March 14 you will be celebrating your 60th wedding anniversary. This is a remarkable goal for both of you and  may I congratulate you on this  happy event and join with your  family and friends in wishing  you the very best.  GOLDEN WEDDING  Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Warwick  of 1602 Marine Drive, Gibsons,  observed their 50th wedding anniversary on March 9. They  were married in St. John's  church, Victoria and lived in  Vancouver until retirement 19  years ago. They have a family  of two sons, two daughters and  13  grandchildren.  Chatter at  big bonfire  A unique experiment by Gibsons Scout troops during the  Centennial bonfire at Gower  Point on Friday night of last  week saw the use of a CB radiotelephone communication with  another Scout bonfire on Vancouver Island.  Don Hauka, a member of the  Elphinstone Scouter group was  in conversation with Scouts in  the Nanaimo area. Apparently  each fire was seen by each  group and the resultant conversation confirmed what was going on.  Three Scout groups, Gibsons,  Roberts Creek and Port Mellon  took part in the Gibsons bonfire  which was a little balky in starting but with a copious sprinkling with gasoline it flared up.  The Sechelt Scout group held  their bonfire at Mission Point  and this fire was also seen from  Nanaimo.  GARGRAVE SPEAKER  Monday night's dinner meeting of Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce will start  at 7 p.m. in Welcome Cafe and  Tony Gargrave, MLA will be  the speaker who will talk on the  present legislative session in  Victoria.  set for  Friday  To consider its next move for  a water supply following a rebuff from officials of the water  rights branch, the area water  group with Eric Prittie as  chairman will meet Friday night  at 8 o'clock n the Health Centre  At this meeting to be attended by Martin J. J. Dayton, professional engineer who prepared an area-wide water survey,  which received commendation  from the water rights deputy  minister, questions will be asked about the change of attitude  by the department when a delegation from the area sought  help from the water rights  branch.  Consternation resulted when  the committee returned from  Victoria with word that the department had changed its attitude completely and without explanation.  Since. that time letters have  gone to government officials not  only covering treatment given  the water delegation but also  the run-around given the committee working on garbage disposal problems. There are also  rumblings within the committee  working on the organization of  a fire district that correspondence appears to have reached  ���a dead end.      -:-;   --.;      - -y.-p.-  It is expected that there will  be a full complement of members at Friday night's meeting  to hear the report of the committee that went to Victoria and  to decide on what it can do iO  keep the issue in front of the  public and provincial officials.  Appointment of T. F. Daugherty as manager of .the Bank  of Montreal's Gibsons branch  has been announced by A. John  Ellis, general manager for British Columbia, in Vancouver. Mr.  Daugherty succeeds Edward  Henniker, who moves to Rossland in the same capacity.  Mr. Daugherty joined the B of  M in Vancouver in 1954. He later served at another branch in  that city and at New Westminster, before being appointed assistant accountant at Burnaby  in 1959. In 1960, he moved to  Sidney as accountant and, two  years later, to Kamloops in the  same capacity. He comes to  Gibsons from the bank's Government street office in Victoria  where he has been accountant  since 1934.  Mr. Henniker, the departing  manager, has been in charge of  the branch since 1955. He was  also a me:r>b'_r cf the Kiwanis  Club and the Chamber of Commerce.  BASEBALL  MEETING  It must be spring!

Unity in She Community gets things done  Make your gripes official  Once in a while some municipal council will insist on hewing to the line; what it has hewed to the line many times before.  This time council insists that it means business. Nevermore would  this situation arise because what they intended to do would become mandatory.  Naturally it would be so for a few weeks and then in an unconscious way council would find itself back in the old groove  tackling hearsay gripes ��� when it should have insisted that gripes  or suggestions must come before council by letter and not by  word of mouth.  Sechelt's council has gone through this situation a few times  during its ten years of existence. At its last meeting Councillor  Ben Lang supported by the entire council laid down the rule that  no complaints would be placed before council from any citizen  through a member of council, unless it was put down in writing.  It is common for ratepayers to gripe to a member of council  but when it comes to putting one's name to an epistle which  would become public when read in open council ��� they shy away  from it. There are many angles to ratepayer gripes and not all  of them contain the element of sweetness and light. Edmund  Burke back in the 18th century said "It is a general popular eirror  to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most  anxious for its welfare."  Most councillors whether they represent city wards or rural  districts can attest to the accuracy of the Burke remark. Nevertheless they would like all who have a complaint to make to put  it in writing and then let council mull over it. It is a satisfactory  way of doing things.  Saturday nighfs tub  Many a man who stands under a pleasant, efficient shower  remembers the days when he took his Saturday night bath in a  round tin tub before the kitchen stove. In those days before germs,  vitamins, and one's smile became matters of brobdingnagian import, a bath once in seven days was often enough in cold weather  months.  A ganglin, teenage young man had a choice of two techniques.  He could kneel in the tub and scrub, or he could stand up and  toss handfuls of water over himself. A small person could sit  down in the thing. Of course knees and chin came together.  Two or three technical points were important. First, the  kitchen stove should have a hard-burning, crackling fire to keep  the room warm; second, the tub should be placed directly before the stove and the oven door should be open. If the towel  were hung on the oven door it meant a pleasantly warm cloth  with which to dry one's self. As we recall it, no matter how careful we were, Mother's reaction was semi-automatic. "Good gracious! Looks to me as if you were trying to wash the floor instead  of yourself."���Contributed.  Minute message  An old saying is if March  comes in like a lion it will go  out like a lamb. The Word of  God states in 1 Peter 5:8, Satan  is like a roaring lion and Psalm  51:5 says ... I was shapen in  iniquity; and in sin did my  mother conceive me. Romans  3:23, . . . All have sinned and  come short of the glory of God.  John 8:44, Ye are of your  .father the devil, and the lusts  'Of your father ye will do. . . .  "These are heart searching  statements, even though many  will not want to acknowledge  them.  In contrast to this, John the  Baptist said of Jesus, Behold  the Lamb of God which taketh  away the sin of the world. John  1:29.  We come into this world like  a lion, that is, only concerned  about our own wants, yet  through God's grace,, we can  leave, having the love of God,  whereby we are more concerned about the welfare of others  more than ourselves.  Isaiah 64:6 says ... all our  righteousnesses are as filthy  rags, but 2 Corinthians 5:17  says, ... If any man be in  Christ, he is a new creature;  old things are passed away;  behold, all thngs are become  new. Christ can even take a  quick tempered person and  give him a Lamb like meekness, but it all depends on  whom we wish to serve.���Rev.  Walter S. AcKroyd, Pender  Harbor Tabernacle.  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)   '  Integration of Canada's Armed Forces is proceeding apace.  For those irritated admirals,  irate generals and infuriated  air marshalls who have had to  resign it may be going too  fast. But to the average Canadian integration makes good  sense. At last bur defence budget is under control and an effective force is being forged  out of Canada's old Army, Navy  and Air Force.  * *      *  Canada's experiment, for that  is what, it is, has attracted a great deal of attention  abroad. This is obvious from  the frequent visits to Ottawa  of delegations from the United  States, Britain and France. Often they come to criticize. More  often they go away to write  learned articles on the advantages of integration from both  a technical and an economic  point of view.  Canada, as is often the case,  has been forced to take this  step. 'We have no conscripts  in our Armed Forces, only  volunteers. Ottawa therefore  has to pay more to get them  and to keep them in uniform.  Pay and allowances have therefore tended to get out of hand.  Cut backs have been necessary  in other places and this meant  cutting back our outlay on  transport and equipment.  * *      *  When the Pearson administration took over in 1963 it was  faced with two alternatives.  Either it could cut out buying  new equipment altogether, or  it could cut down on manpower  and start  equipping a  mobile  force worthy of the name.  The then new Defence Minister Paul Hellyer chose the latter course. He began to streamline his organization. A lot of  the brass had to go. Overlapping services had to be done  away with.  In  overall  dollar  terms this  has paid off. Mr. Hellyer has  held   the   line.   Canada's   total  defence expenditure still rounds  at around $1.6 billion a year.  But, in the context of a growing economy this is not so bad.  We now spend less than 4% of  our total national income on (defence. The corresponding figure  in the United Kingdom is 7%  and in the United States 10%.  A booming    economy,    however,   presents   its   own   problems.   Industry  is  bidding  for  skilled  help. Men  with  trades  ' now get tempting    offers.    A  qualified radar mechanic gets  $6,000 a year if he is a married  man   and a   sergeant.  Private  enterprise however, is offering  him between $8,000 and $10,000  a year for his' talents. No wonder that 21,000 out of the 26,-  000 leaving    Canada's    Armed  Forces over the last 18 months  have been in the highly trained category. No wonder, also,  that Mr.  Hellyer is having to  offer special $200 a year bon- .  uses  to keep key men in the  forces a while longer.  The opposition in Parliament  has been pointing to what it  calls the dreadful state of  morale in Canada's Armed  Forces. This may be true of  the more highly paid ranks. But  the great majority, faced with ,  private industry and the defence department both bidding  for their services are bound to  A story about a fight!  This is a story about a fight  between an Octopus and a Barracuda, the devil of the Caribbean waters. It all happened on  a warm summer day.  We looked into the waters in  which we were enjoying our afternoon ,swim. We looked toward a cave where we thought,  we saw some movement. Out  of the cave crawled an Octopus.  He seemed to be very hungry  because the first thing he did  was to search the rocks surrounding his cave for food. Once  a Limpet tumbled down and a  tentacle shot out to grab it, but  it was empty so it was dropped.  All of a sudden all the fish  scurried away and even the Octopus seemed to cower. Then  we saw the cause crouching in  the shadows of the rocks. The  Octopus   suddenly   jumped- up  and stood on all legs as if challenging him to a fight. It was  so hungry it would even tackle  this killer. The fight had begun.  iV_ the Barracuda shot past a\  tentacle darted and at the same  time an inky substance used for  protection was squirted out. We  could see nothing of the fight.  As the water cleared we saw  the Octopus sprawled over the  rocks. But he did not give up.  He attacked again and again  the oozy substance was extracted. As it cleared we saw the  octopus. He was dead and one  arm was on the rocks a little  way away. The Barracuda was  battered but swam  away.  We quickly retreated because  we did not want to be his dessert.  ���Toni  King,   Grade  7,   Gibsons Elementary.  Foreshore vs. offshore  During a recent debate on offshore mineral rights Jack Davis  M.P., parliamentary secretary  to the minister of mines and  technical surveys, explained  that under international law  Canada has the ownership of the  soil under what might be referred to as internal waters, those  inside the baseline and those out  and beyond the limit from which  our territorial waters are measured. The question with which  the constitutional lawyer is faced, he said, is whether that  ownership vests in Canada as a  nation or in the separate and individual provinces that border  on these submerged areas.  Mr. Davis in his remarks explained that provinces have  complete jurisdiction over all  resources that lie within their  boundaries and that in effect  what Ottawa is asking the Supreme Court to determine is  where provincial boundaries begin and end. Later in his speech  he referred to a letter from the  province of British Columbia  which referred to provincial  foreshore mineral rights and  added that the B.C. government  viewed with alarm the referring  of the question to the Supreme  Court of Canada.  In his endeavor to find out  what foreshore rights meant he  found that one authority conceived the foreshore as being  the shore between the low and  high water marks. He said he  wondered on rereading the submission of the province of British Columbia whether the province was backing down a little  bit, whether it was going to  take a position which was in effect a partial retraction of the  position which it appeared to  take in public on the matter.

Apparently they are not afraid of integration. A more popular image  is also helpful in boosting their  sense of being useful to the  nation.  N.

Unique marine operation for Powell River       Pollution  Construction crews will soon  launch a unique phase of the  $105,000,000 expansion project  at 7 Powell River Division of  MacMillan, Bloedel and Powell  River Limited.  Ten old concrete ship hulks  and one steel hull, which are  anchored offshore at Powell  River  to   form  a   breakwater,  I John Hind-Smilhl  Refrigeration  PORT MELLON  TO  PENDER   HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Res.  886-9949  are to be relocated in order  to enlarge the log storage pond  at . the world's largest newsprint mill. In addition, an 11th  concrete hulk is to be moved  into the 'line t of breakwater  ships which protect the mill's  log supply from Gulf of  Georgia gales;  The hulls range in length  from 230 feet to 420 feet, in  weight from 800 to 5,000 tons,  and must be anchored to massive 14 to 16 ton concrete  blocks on the ocean floor at  depths from 60 to 200 feet.  Tugs, scows, skin-divers and  conventional air - pump divers  will, join forces on the relocation job, the contract for which  has been awarded to Vancouver Pile Driving and Contracting Co. Ltd.  Each of the 12 old hulks has  its own history: The concrete  vessels were built' during the  last war to carry general car-  ANNOUNCEMENT  FRANK E.

The steel hull is that of the  old Union Steamship vessel  Cardena, a familiar traveller of  coastal waterways for many  years.  The concrete hull of the Per-  alta, a vessel built in 1916,  was once a floating sardine  cannery in Alaska.  In earlier years two of the  hulls were those of U.S. Navy  cruisers, the Charleston and r  Huron. The former warship  Huron sank in 1960 and, lies  on the bottom under one concrete hull.  Each vessel is held in place  by eight to ten huge concrete  blocks, indictive of the scope of  the repositioning job, since 12  hulls are involved.  The Powell River chain of  hulks is believed to be the  largest floating breakwater in  existence, and experience gained from this installation over  the years has led to development of many of today's ideas  for floating hulk breakwater design and maintenance.

The $150,000,000 expansion at  MB & PR's Powell River mill  involves installation of a 10th  newsprint machine, erection of  a new kraft pulp mill, building  of a new deepsea wharf and  other facilities.

Cameras, microphones and lights  were set up under the direction of CBC producer Neil  Sutherland.  The program will be one of  the On The Scene series and  will have Canon Alan Greene  as its central figure. It will  depict part of morning service  in the Church of His Presence,  the congregation coming out  from the church and Canon  Greene, with a background of  sea, islands and mountains, reminiscing about his experiences  along the B.C. coast with interviewer Bob Switzer. The  program will be seen on Channel 2, Monday, April 4 at 10:30  a.m.  W.A.

With his father,  Frank, brother Harry and sister Ida, he crossed Canada by  rail and arrived in Vancouver  in time to witness the July 1  celebrations.  Bill spent most of his life at  Roberts Creek and he and Margaret brought up their five children   here.

School choir on radio  YOUR RED CROSS IS  JL SERVING JL  T   TODAY   TT  READY FOR TOMORROW  It was an exciting experience  to be part of such a wonderful  team. This was the reaction of  the Gibsons Elementary School  Choir after their trip to Vancouver to sing on the CBC radio.  They took part in the CBC  school broadcast Music and  Things on Wednesday afternoon. The team responsible for  the Wednesday afternoon music  program comprises Margaret  Musselman, director of school  broadcasts, Fred Laight, producer, Gordon Inglis, announcer,  Gordon and Pat and Polly the  accompanist, the sound effects  man and other technicians plus  on this occasion 30 members of  Gibsons school choir and Mrs.  Neilson. A full two hours of  strenuous and painstaking rehearsal preceded the broadcast,  fitting the songs to the script  and making sure everyone knew  just what to do. It was hard  work but because the crew all  worked well and happily together it was fun too.  The countdown before they  were on the air was as nerve-  wracking for the first time  broadcasters as for any first  time astronaut. Difficult too was  the first part of the half hour  program beamed to Grades 1  and 2 and in which the choir had  to remember not to sing when  Pat asked the children listening to sing with her. Music and  Things for grades 3 and 4 was  a program of sea songs woven  into a story. The choir sang Jubilate, Blow the Man Down, Father Noah, Aboard the Kangaroo, Rolling Home and the preview of next week's new song,  My Dreydl.  Only three school choirs are  chosen each year to take part  in this program and it was a  great honor for Gibsons, as well  as a wonderful experience for  the children.  Although for the choir the  trip was strictly work they did  manage to squeeze in a short  visit to Stanley Park where  the polar bears, otter, gibbons  and penguins performed for  them.  Nine Grade 3 junior members  of the choir who were not taking part in the broadcast spent  the time exploring the City and  Maritime Museums and inspecting the progress of work on the  St. Roch.  Museum about ready  Monday evening, March 7, the  .first annual meeting of Elphinstone Pioneer Museum Society  was held at Museum headquarters, the lower floor of the new  Municipal building.  While wall board is still required to finish the interior of  the Museum, the members are  nevertheless pleased that articles are now set up and an informative card attached to each.  Members of the executive extend a sincere vote of thanks  to all who participated in this  work. Girl Guides under the  supervision of Mrs. Len Allen  contributed a tremendous amount of work in cleaning, scrubbing, and washing down used  show cases, and applying paint  to one large case. Len Allen  and D. G. Poole erected the 30-  foot canoe in position so that  visitors may walk beneath it,  while Karen and Virginia Alsager applied such finishing  touches as setting many articles on display, with cards attached.  Council members have been  extended an invitation to be  first in viewing museum articles  now on display. While it is possible that early in April members of the Howe Sound Women's Institute may. be honored with a visit of perhaps one  hundred Women's Institute ladies from such points as Mission City and Vancouver Island.  The local group is interested in  these visitors viewing the Museum, and the executive is most  pleased, realizing the value of  such inspection.  Opportunities explored  Stressing the variety of job  opportunities for the young  people of today and the necessity for adequate training, top  personnel officials from Vancouver addressed the senior  students of Elphinstone Secondary School on Wednesday,  March 9th on Careers Day.  Students of Grade X, XI, and  XII, each heard three speakers,  previously chosen according to  interests.  In planning for Careers day  the school hoped to stress the  variety of employment opportunities within an industry or  large business concern. For example, a modern department  store employs men and women from sweepers through to  mechanical and electrical engineers, dietitians, pharmacists,  accountants, personel specialists and many others.  Speakers had also been asked  to point out the facilities for  further training on the job as  well as the need for specialized  training before applying for employment. Some of the speakers  had visual aids, and all answered individual questions and  left behind information for the  use  of the  school  counsellors.  Speakers for the afternoon  were: National Employment  Service,  Mr.  L.  F.  Haggman;  Kite advice  With the arrival of the kite  flying season, B.C. Hydro has  issued a reminder to youngsters  that while kites are fun, they  can be dangerous too.  Tragedy sometimes mars the  season when safety rules are ignored and children ������ and  adults, too ��� fly kites too close  to electric power lines.  Here are a few simple rules  for those who fly kites: Always  fly kites in open fields, well  away from electric power wires,  transmission towers, and highways; never use any kind of  rnetal in making a kite, and be  sure that the attached string  isn't tinsel; avoid kite flying in  wet or stormy weather, and perhaps most important of all,  don't try to remove a kite if it  catches in an electric power  wire or on a high pole.  B.C. Telephone Company, Mr.  W. Spitz, personnel department;  International Business Machines  Co. Ltd., Mr. M. C. Hodgson,  data processing division; The  T. Eaton Co. of Canada Ltd.,  Mr. A.

Student chairmen for the various sections were Lynda Dockar, Carol Mylroie, Laurelai  Sheridan, Carolyn Anderson,  Royleen Nygren, Nancy Inglis,  Lee Goulding, Judy Brown, Phil  Reeves, Cameron Hercus, David  Whittaker, Philip Malpass,  David Burritt, Michael Willis,  Terry Forshner, Ray Moscrip.  Canada films  Canada on Screen, a program  of four films will be presented  by the National Film Board of  Canada and the Sunshine Coast  Community Arts Council this  week. So that everyone may  have an equal chance to see  these films they will be shown  in Pender Harbour Secondary  school on Thursday, March 17,  in Sechelt Elementary School  on Friday, March 18 and at  Gibsons Elementary school on  Saturday, March 19. All programs begin at 8 p.m.  $8,000 fire  Fire destroyed the Nestman  home at Selma Park on March  10 starting about 7 a.m., causing an estimated $8,000 loss. The  blaze appeared to have originated in the basement and was  noticed in one corner of the  house. Sechelt Volunteer firemen turned out and fought the  blaze but the home was gutted.  Mr. and Mrs. Nestman and  their eight children lost everything they owned. Until they  can find another home large  enough to accommodate the  family, they are at the Frank  Yates, the Ben Lang, the^Bill  Sheridan and the Wilf Nestman  homes. 6    Coast News, March 17, 1966.

Speaking very generally, Canada can be divided for agricultural purposes into four broad  areas: the Maritimes, the Central Provinces, the Prairie Provinces and British Columbia.  Natural barriers ��� the Appalachians, the Laurentian Shield  and the Canadian Cordillera ���  separate these areas from one  another.  Each has its own peculiarities of soil, climate and topography, leading naturally to  differences in farming practices. On the whole, where  there is greater rainfall, as in  the east and far west, livestock-  raising and mixed farming are  the rule, for these regions support the vigorous growth of  grasses and other crops on  which these types of agriculture  are based. On the other hand,  the dryer conditions encountered on the prairies favor the  production of wheat and other  cereal crops. In each area are  specialized districts, such as  the Maritimes' dikelands and  Ontario's tobacco fields.  Who named insulin?  Insulin was named by its discoverers, Frederick G. Banting  and Charles H. Best, who were  working under the direction of  J. J. R. Macleod in Toronto  when they isolated the substance in 1921. Insulin is one  of the class of substances called hormones, which have the  function of exciting action in  some organ of the body. In  1922 J. B. Collip did important  work on the purification of the  crude substance and insulin  quickly came into general use  in the treatment of diabetes.  It is produced from the pancreas of cattle.

Here is what the  publication said:  Pender Harbour and District  Chamber of Commerce has another winner to its credit. This  time by the erection of a district directory in the form of  a large  map  showing  the  entire northern  end of the  Peninsula.   Transposed  from   our  aerial maps onto plywood sheeting approximately 10    by    15  feet, it gjves a true picture of  the area. It is situated on the  highway on a site donated by  the South Pender Harbour and  District Water Works  and adjacent to their pipe line shed.  The  huge  sign  was  made  up  by K & R Signs and Displays  Ltd. of Burnaby, a company in  which  Bob  Harper,   a   former  resident   of  Francis  Peninsula  and member of the chamber,  is now a partner.  A graded turn-out allows off  highway parking for about eight  cars and the sign is so situated  as to be visible to approaching  traffic for a considerable distance. A drinking fountain will  also be  installed in  the near  future. Almost all of the business establishments in the' Middle Point to Egmont areas have  participated in the cost of this  directory by advertising their  name and location on the signs,  some 27 so far with about 10  more to be added.  The idea for this type of sign  originated with Mrs. Fleming,  former secretary of the chamber and immediate past principal of Pender Harbour High  School. Mrs. Merle Hately has  done a splendid job in contacting the various business people  and in raising the necessary  funds for this project. The erection of the sign was handled  by Hugo Seaholm, Madeira  Park building contractor. He  was assisted by Rod Webb and  Mark Myers, chamber members who donated their time  and effort.

Conservation is already a great  project all over North America.  I do not wish to argue the  details of conservation, but to  argue for the broad, philosophical approach.  Our resources are not Inexhaustible, and British Columbia is one of the last resource  outposts of North America.  Since .most of our land acreage  is unproductive we must be  careful   to   protect   our   river  valleys. Only two percent of our  land is arable. A plane trip  over the interior of the province on a clear day proves  this.  We are fortunate that we  have a laboratory adjacent to  our boundaries in which we  can foretell the future. While  observing our neighbor to the  south, the United States of  America, we can see the unfortunate misuse of -resources. By  observing what has happened  and is happening, we can in  many cases forecast the future  w_th great accuracy in British Columbia. Since the pace  of development is now accelerated, often the warning is short.  There is no need to make certifiable mistakes lin the management of land resource. In  the handling of our resource  we must remember unborn  generations have a claim on  the resources of British Columbia equal to our own.  BINGO  $100 JACKPOT  FUN FOR All  Thins.. Man Ii 17  8 p.m.  SHARP  DOOR PRIZE  LEGION HALL  GIBSONS  The one fundamental fault in  thiis government's thinking is  its belief in the myth of superabundance. This myth still  stalks the halls of our legislature, and it lis a myth which  must be abandoned. The free  enterprise philosophy has encouraged this myth, and the  new mine in Strathcona Park,  which is going to discharge its  tailings into Buttle Lake, is an  example of the myth in action.  The government should have  .purchased thiis claim many  years ago.  The myth of superabundance  plus the myth of free enterprise  and a philosophy of extreme individualism caused the overgrazing of the American west  and the consequent dust-bowl  conditions, the disappearance  of the buffalo, the Atlantic salmon and the passenger pigeon.  Development can be amazingly rapid. We have little time  in which to learn from American experience. The American  experience is a7.unique look in- .  to the future for ourselves. We  must have more statistical evidence of events in the United  States applicable to British Columbia. We should have a special bureau to sift and distribute  meaningful facts to our own  provincial government departments.  I appeal to this govenment  to abandon the myth of superabundance before it is too late.  BLACKTOP!

BRITISH COLUMBIA MEDICAL PLAN  1410 GOVERNMENT STREET, VICTORIA, B.C.  Initiated by the Government of British Columbia      Approved by the Doctors of British Columbia-  Tine Honourable W. A. C. Bennett, LL.D., Premier of British Columbia  The Honourable Wesley D. Black, Provincial Secretary Doctor defines drugs  Dr. E. J. Paetkau, speaking  at the Parents' Auxiliary meeting at Roberts Creek, defined  the various drugs, their uses  and effects, and how,to detect  the result. TDrugs which he classified as barbituates, pep pills  and narcotics, may be taken in  several ways ��� orally, by smoking, sniffing or hypodermic  needle.  They can act-as depressants,  or they can provide one with  hours of activity without the  need of sleep. They can provide wonderful experiences and  hallucinations. Certain sleeping  pills can cause addiction. A person under the influence of drugs  acts not unlike a drunk.  Fortunately, the young people of this part of the country  are too smart to get involved  with drugs.  Following Dr.  Paetkau's  ad  dress Mr. J. Horvath spoke on  the school referendum. He called on W. S. Potter, Elphinstone  Secondary School; Mr. George  Cooper, Gibsons Elementary  School; Mr. M. McTavish, representing teachers; Mr. J. Ferrari, Mr. P. Wilson, secretary  of the school board and Mrs. C.  Fisher, trustee, all of whom  gave their reasons for wishing  the referendum to pass.  Some 50 people nicely filled  the Roberts Creek school library where the meeting was held.  Members of the auxiliary served refreshments at the close of  the evening.  Expo coincides with the 325th  anniversary of the founding of  Montreal, the second largest  French-speaking city in the  world.  ROBERTS  CREEK  CREDIT UNION  Sechelt, B.C.

One wonders if women realize just how much of  the responsibility for this grievous state of affairs falls squarely on their shoulders when they  insist on clothing themselves in  garments stolen from their  rightful owners and at this terrific cost of terror and agony  ��� and this applies not only to  the  seals.  Possibly many are not aware  of this for if so then they would  purchase the beautiful and long  wearing synthetic furs on the  market today. Some tell us that  this debasing industry must continue since men's living depends  on it. But if,we cannot find a  cleaner and better way of livelihood than this for men what.  on earth shall we do when automation becomes more and more  widespread and more and more  men continue to be thrown on  the labor market?  Recently a TV personality on  Flashback when speaking on the  matter of women wearing furs,  said, "I'd like to see animals  wearing the skins of humans!"  Maybe- he had something there  and it might be one way of  cleaning up the nasty and  bloody mess. ���Mrs. G. E. Webb  Editor: I'm seeking .public  support for a class that I'm  holding in Gibsons. The class,  primarily for teenagers and  young adults, is intended to  help develop creativity. Developing creativity leads to painting, sculpture, acting, writing,  dancing, building and original  thinking. The course will deal  mainly with the areas in which  the, people taking part have the  most interest and talent.  Educational ventures of this  sort are becoming more widespread throughout the country  as we become more aware of  the need for creative young people to cope with the problems of  the next decade. ~        ?"  I've tried to hold the class under the auspices of the night  school program. I was told that  since the majority of my students were high school students  who were being ' offered this  kind of course as a part of their  regular curriculum it wouldn't  be possible to have the course  in the night school program.  I applied to the school board  for free use of the high school  art room on an open evening.  The board  decided  to  rent  us  the room for a dollar an hour.  This seems a nominal fee but  it's nearly half of the money  that comes in. This will make it  difficult for us to use the art  room for the course.  I understand that educational  groups are given free use of the  school facilities. I firmly believe  that this course is educational  and that it is filling a definite  and felt need If you are interested in taking part or in supporting the class please contact  me. ���Arthur P. Lisch.  Editor: Re West Sechelt water  line. The workmen on that project have made a very.fine job  of it. It has also given more  space at the side of the highway for pedestrians. Before  they had to climb a tree when  a car was coming.  However why did the planners  "omit taking a two-inch pipe  across the highway at every  road allowance to feed the other  side? When the highway is paved it will have to be torn up to  supply water as it now stands.  It will mean a bump on the road  every 50 or 60 feet. I cannot  give credit for that.       W.

Just four hours later,  the jet touched down on the  tarmac at Montego Bay and  the passengers stepped out into  the hot Jamaican sunshine.  Among the passengers on this  plane were Mr. and Mrs. Red  nicked up  Md passing  Watching Johnny Longden  win a race aboard George  Royal at Santa Anita Saturday  afternoon recalls days when  . Longden was a rider on prairie  circuit race tracks. Back in the  1920s he rode mounts at Whit-  tier and Polo parks in Winnipeg  and was then one of the better  jockeys. He may have been a  rider at the old River Park  mud bowl but his name does  not ring a beJl there.  Longden then rated a top  jockey, learned considerable  about the mud at Whittier Park  where on one July 1 with Lord  Willingdon, governor-general for  Canada presiding, a horse named WMtrude Wood ran last most  of the way in a feature -race  and oh coming to the finish  post romped away from the  field including the top Ramsay  stable horse named Scissors.  If Longden ever found racetrack mud worse than that of  Whittier park it must have been  mud with a capital M.  *l_ 3J_ JjC  Someone, we know not who  left a clipping at the Coast  News from a Feb. 3, 1947 issue  of the Vancouver Province cov-  ��� ering a story taken from 1893  copy of the Vancouver News-  Advertiser.  The clipping details how  Harbormaster C. P. Smith of  Gibsons Landing found the yellow copy in comparatively good  condition. Gibsons Landing, the  clipping revealed was given a  column of news in the 54-year-  old copy, with Ralph Gibson,  owner of the first store which  is now a landmark at Gibsons  Landing, given top space. Some  25 pupils attended school and  J. Drummond's Howe Sound  Trading Co., general store was  dispensing rubber boots and  raisins to its customers.  The public was invited "to  bring a tent ���- we have no  mosquitoes here" and plans for  an Episcopal church were being made.  V '.! #  The touring National Ballet of  Canada had just completed a  performance in. a small Canadian town when a woman  cornered George Crum, conduc-.  tor of the National Ballet Orchestra, and said: "I think  y��ur orchestra played just  beautifully ��� mind you, I- was  sitting too far back to hear  the singing."  This was one of several humorous incidents from the Ballet's tour recalled by Mr. Crum  during a recent appearance on  CBC Metronome.  CBC Metronome isn't a  comedy show���though it sometimes turns out that way. It's  a lively radio magazine covering the whole field of music  in Canada ��� from classical to  pop, jazz, folk and nightclub  performances.  CBC Metronome, heard on  the CBC radio network Saturdays at 7 p.m. celebrates its  first anniversary next month.  In addition to news of Canada's world of music and interviews with its participants,  CBC Metronome has also been  responsible for a few musical  scoops. The latest was the network radio premiere of The  Centennial Rag, which manages  to incorporate O Canada and  Alouette into a ragtime tune,  written by Toronto ragtime  pianist John Arpin.  Robinson of Middle Point who  planned a vacation in Montego  Bay, one of the oldest towns  in the island. It is important for  the export of sugar and bananas  Once a week white banana  boats anchor a mile offshore  .for loading from the warehouse  by native women, each carrying  a stem of bananas weighing  about 60 lbs. on her head. They  carry them to lighters which  then row out to the boats.  It   is   no   problem   for   these  women   to  get  their   groceries  home from the store. The Robinson's saw one of them carrying a case of milk (48 tall tins)  on   her   head   and   turning   to  smile and greet her friends as  she walked along. The women  have excellent bearing and posture as a result of a lifetime of  balancing loads on their heads.  The Robinsons rented a small ���  U-drive   M.G.   and   toured   the  island. The roads, mostly developed from  old donkey trails,  are narrow and winding. Driving is on the left hand side, a  legacy left by 300 years of British colonization.  While the tourist sections of  Jamaica are modern and contain fine hotels and palatial  homes, the Robinsons were appalled at the poverty and the  wretched shacks which served  as homes in outlying districts.  There is a high unemployment  rate and an urgent need for  more development.  Jamaica is 148 miles long and  55 miles wide, with a population bf nearly 2 million of which  98% is colored. The climate is  perfect, being summer the year  round with temperatures ranging from 86 degrees during the  day to 70 at night. There is no  definite rainy season and there  is always a pleasant breeze as  the island lies within the belt  of the trade winds.  intending vlisitors are recommended to check the location  of their hotels for only about  50% of them are on or close to  the beach. Many of them are  converted mansions far inland.  Kingston, the capital, has only  one of its numerous hotels actually on the beach.  For the average Jamaican,  say the Robinsons, life is still  60 years behind most other  countries.' Goats are still kept  by most families to supply milk,  donkeys with paniers1 are still  used for carrying goods and  many of the women still do their  family wash in the river beds.

He was just in time  to see the Bristol house where  he had lived as a small boy,  for two weeks after his visit  it was demolished. He visited  the school which he had attended and saw .the desk at  which he had received his first  lessons.;  Mr. Stone was impressed  most of all by the friendliness  and cheerfulness of the English people. Everywhere there  were smiling happy faces in  spite of the fact gasoline costs  75 cents a gallon and cigarets  80 cents a packet. He was not  favorably impressed by boys'  shaggy long hair styles.  Another returned traveller is  Jim Graves of the B &. J Store  who has been on a three months  visit to England. He spent most  of the time with his brother  at Wickford, Essex, but flew  to Dublin for a visit with Mrs.  Pat Murphy's parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Stephen Keyes. Mr.  Graves, when asked about his  impressions of London, replied  that he found it small and dingy  ���but nice.  He enjoyed an interesting  day browsing around London  with Mrs. M. Meuse's son,  Lloyd MacDougall, a former  resident of Halfmoon Bay now  living in London. They met one  Sunday morning in a London  pub called The Three Nuns.  They wandered through Petticoat Lane, which is one of London's most colorful Sunday  markets and then stopped for  refreshment at another famous  pub. Dirty Dick's. They visited  St. Paul's Cathedral and Buck-  inham Palace; they attended  Evensong at Westminster Abbey and sauntered through St.  James' Park. Mr. Graves returned to Montreal on the maid  en flight of the new Viscount  10, which has the jets in the  stern and none in the wings,  resulting in a smoother and  pleasanter trip. He came home  convinced of the stability of  sterling and the steady rise; of  the British economy. From discussions he had with his English friends he thinks it is certain that Prime Minister Harold  Wilson will again be returned  to power in the coming elections.  Guests of Mrs. Alan Greene  last week was Miss Kaye Hurley of Ottawa. Miss Hurley and  Mrs. Greene , worked together  in the Canadian Red Cross in  London during the last war.  Miss Hurley has now left for  Vancouver where she will remain until the middle of April.  John Surtees was in the Bay  last weekend for a visit with his  parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Surtees.  The Guy Winning family  seemed to have all the fishing  luck last week. Son Rod, who  was the weekend guest of his  parents,    landed    a   . 15-pound  spring and    son-in-law,     Ron  Jones, was happy to settle for  a   9-pounder,   both   caught   in  Secret Cove.  ?"%&��'������ Z***rT?t*%*&'~$teyr%$ ���&���#&&��� ���  % ss* %    "*,    T  ���yyy  itW .vfyAv.   .
