 Provincial Libraryf  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. Volume 20, Number 16, April 21, 1966.  7c per copy  TWILIGHT THEATRE  PROGRAM PAGE  10  ��� Ph.  886-2827  Mayor Rathie of Vancouver  in starting the fence painting  craze did not realize it would  reach Gibsons but Arthur Lisch  who does, art teaching in the  area, aided by various merchants, has really got Gibsons  into a fence painting binge.  At the mome:nt of writing  there were 26 panels, some  painted completely, others half  finished and the remainder  awaiting the touch of genius to  transform the flat surf aces into  works of art.  It started Saturday when Mr.  Fix elock!  If you want to keep up  with the times change your  clock Saturday night before  retiring because on Sunday  morning you should have  lost an {hour of sleep by'  pushing the hour band one  hour: ahead. You will regain  that {hour in the fall when  you push the hour hand  back. .y''  ..rt  More blood 7 is used at St.  Mary's Hospital, Sechelt, than  is supplied by residents of the  area, Red Cross officials report.  At the jsame time these, officials  urge" those who desire to donate  their blood' toy attend /the:: clinic  to. be held' Monday at Gibsons  Health, Centred The hours will  be from 1:30 to 4:30 and 6:30  to 8:30 p.m.  ���. If the collections reach the  anticipations of the committee  in charge there will be a surprising-demonstration on Gibsons main thoroughfares. The  goal sought,, is 300 pints and in  the case ofNGibsons and area  [here is a local' touch.  Five-year-old Randy Pilling,  son of Mr. and Mrs. L. Pilling  >f Gibsons will soon undergo  >pen.heart surgery and this op-  ;ration alone will require some  !0 to 30 pints of blood. The com-  nittee urges you to get out, do-  late your blood and see that the  irea does not lag behind in its  lonations for use at St. Mary's  lospital.  Caravan visit  lures 2,500  About 2,500, persons including  ���Mldren journeyed through the  lirovdncial   Centennial   commit-  lee's    caravan    which    visited  Gibsons area Tuesday, April 12  pn "the Sunnycrest Plaza parking area.  Arriving on the first ferry in  ihe morning it was greeted- on  ite by Councillor Sam Fladager, chairman of Gibsons Cen-  ennial committee. As help was  equired to set the caravan up,  bhone calls were made to quite  p. number of people before some  lyere obtained to assist in get-  ing the caravan in an operat-  ng condition.  Throughout the day a steady  Itream of parents and children  bassed throt|jh the caravan  [vhich offered depictions of life  n British Columbia in years  >ast and outlined future possi-  >ilities in the years to. come.  Trom here the caravan moved  o Powell River for a two-day  litand.  NEW TYPE  GUM  The Highway Safety Commemorative stamp which will  go on sale May 2, will be backed with a new adhesive known  as Davac gum. The properties  of this adhesive have been described tasteless, virtually invisible gum with superior adhesive qualities.  Lisch in conference with Ken;  Watson, possessor of an area  under construction . with possibilities of a fence fronting his  Lucky Dollar Store, decided it  was a worthwhile proposition. It  caught on and soon there were  boards sponsored by Mr. Watson, Gibsons Building Supply,  5-10-lSc Store, Thriftee, Co-op,  Jay Bee, Mr. Peterson and othr  ers added since.  It is now advisable that others  who desire to display their artistic endeavours at this present location phone Arthur Lisch  and make arrangements with  him. At the time of writing  boards were arriving and places  to put them were vanishingj at  a rapid rate.  Some painters started Saturday, and the stretch of boards,  from the Watson store passed  the Drummond office and Soi-  , nik home, to the Jay-Bee furni-  turn store, were quickly marked  with names as reservations.  Chairman Wes Hodgson of Gibsons council was- one of the  first to complete his harbour  scene and Mrs. Small with her  abstract was second. This abstract has drawn considerable  comment and one claim was  it is a representation of'Love  in Spring. Another saw an octopus giving birth to a young octopus who stumbled into a pretty dark world as represented by  a coal mine at the bottom. Still  Sechelt refuge  harbor deferred  another advised that if you cannot figure this abstract out today, try tomorrow and then if  unsuccessful try the third day,  but if eventually you could come  to no conclusion 7 it would not  matter anyway.

Gibsons council will be asked  by letter to see what can be,  130 women  here day  One - hundred - and - thirty women from Gibsons area and  other parts of the province will  attend a one-day convention of  North Fraser district Women's  Institutes in Gibsons Legion  hall.  Mrs. G. Corlett, of Gibsons  W.L, president of the district  institute will preside. Delegates  from outside points are expected on the 10:30 a.m. ferry by  bus or by own cars. Among the  visitors will be Mrs. M. Palmer,  provincial president of Women's  Institutes and the vice-president, Mrs. Hazel Woodward  from Brentwood, Vancouver Island.  Following a short morning  session luncheon will be served  in the Legion hall by members  of the Legion's auxiliary. During the afternoon session there  will be a tea  done about placing signs at available spots where tourists can  find directions to parks and  beaches in Gibsons. While on  parks and beaches, Councilor  Fred Feeney reported that he  had informed council about the  stones thrown through the roof  of the toilet facilities at the municipal beach leaving gaping  holes.  The executive supported a  suggestion that a covered walk  be arranged for walking ferry  patrons at Langdale, similar to  those at other ferry terminals  and a letter will be sent to the  ferry authority seeking the  same. It was argued the walk in  the rain was unnecessary.  Chamber of Commerce Week  will be observed in Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender Harbor and  across  Canada,  April  17-23.  President R. H.

Unify in the Community gets things done  More civic pride needed  Civic pride, if it can be classed as a commodity, collects  dividends and if any community can develop civic pride it is  going a long way towards becoming better known. What is better  than to have the goodwill of visitors and people within the community.  Take for instance the recent civic honor conferred on seven  young citizens by Council Chairman Wes. Hodgson, on their departure from Gibsons to Victoria where they received from the  lieutenant-governor their Gold Cord certificates, earned after considerable work within the Girl Guide movement.  To take a situation in reverse what can be more disheartening  when something like a Centennial Caravan, containing depiction  of life in British Columbia over the past century with the official  in charge expressing the opinion that perhaps he should not open  up as on his arrival it appeared no one was interested. Help was  rustled and eventually it was put into operation.  It should not be thought that the official in charge of the  Cavalcade expected a brass band and a lineup of dignitaries to  greet him. However it should be an example of lack of feeling  by the community towards events that are going on around them.  There could have been some sort of opening remarks included  in a ceremony at which someone would have welcomed the Cavalcade.  Some planning ahead could have made the entry of the Cavalcade somewhat more distinguished. A community should develop  some form of welcoming committee be it civic or chamber of  commerce inspired. Perhaps in time civic pride will rear its  head and reveal that Gibsons is after all a place filled with people as inspiring as the scenery in which it is set.  Information required  There is little reason why any child should lack a complete  knowledge of life since there does not appear to be anything left  to the imagination in today's paperback^books. What he or she  may lack is the knowledge of the dangers involved and information of this nature should be taken care of in everyday family life.  To put sex education in schools in these times when rape,  perversion and sex life are paraded openly in the major part of  our news, magazine and TV media is like carrying coals to Newcastle if biological aspects only are contemplated.  It will be tantamount to striving to educate children not to  rob apple trees. Just as long as there are apples on trees they  will be the prime objective of those capable of climbing trees,  no matter whose garden they might be in. It would be possible  to keep a few, but very few youngsters off apple trees even after  prolonged courses on the moral aspects of taking apples awaiting  a picker.  It is not the intention of this editorial to oppose sex education anywhere but the term loosely used deserves some amplification. The general public was not in the position of listening to the  teacher's convention discussion on this problem last week so they  and the writer have no knowledge of what is meant by sex education. Perhaps some explanation would help. Who has it? The  individual teacher, the school principal, or the department of  education?  It should be remembered that sex does not mean the same  thing to all ages. The teenager and the middle-aged person would  view it differently. Just what can an educational system teach  about sex beyond its biological aspects. It is in the area beyond  that education is needed most.  THE COAST NEWS  is nug ii.ii  Preliminary plans for three  new schools for the district  have been submitted to the education  department  in  Victoria  C. P. Ballentine announces  plans to build a block of stores  with a dance hall above, on  Marine Drive and ask council's  help for the removal of tree  stumps.  When Gibsons council learned that half the amount for the  firehail property had been donated it proposed to supply the  other half.  Helped by Gibsons Board of  Trade a board of trade for Sechelt and the peninsula area  was organized at a meeting in  Sechelt. E. S. Johnstone was  the  first  president.  The sum of $300 was contributed by 18 men attending  a meeting for improvement of  the  playground in  Gibsons.  Sechelt's PTA meeting in the  Legion hall heard Mrs. A. A.  French read an article on Sex  Taught in Schools, written by  Miss Marchant of Sechelt United school.  Back in 1943, Hon. J. L. Ils-  ley, minister of finance in presenting his first report of operations of the Wartime Prices  and Trade Board stated. that  it has been estimated that  every rise in the cost-of-living  index costs Canadian consumers as a whole about $35,000,-  000 a year. Based on the population of Canada at that time  of writing, which was approximately 13,000,000 the added expenditure caused by a one point  rise today with a 19,000,000 plus  population would be closer $50,-  000,000 more or less.      -  The increase to the cost-of-  living index during recent years  has been fractional month by  month with some months not  showing any increase at all and  rarely has it shown a decrease.  * *       *  Canadians will experience a  sharp jolt May 31 when the  first major provision of Finance  Minister Sharp's budget takes  effect, Vancouver chartered accountant Edgar A. Downey anticipates. He likened the shock  to that of a car braking sharply.  "The braking system on the  economy may be rather like  power brakes on modern cars,"  he said. "Until you get used to  them, they may grab too hard,  bringing everything to a grinding halt and pitching the riders  through the windshield."    j  Downey arid chartered accountant N. J. R. MacKinnon  were speaking on the budget  and its effects to a riieeting of  the Canadian Plumbing and  Mechanical Contractors' Association in Queen Elizabeth  Theatre restaurant.  * *     *  Downey said the shock will  come when the 'five percent  cash flow tax' takes effect because it is going to drag about  five percent of the cash out of  the economy.  "From the point of view of.,.  B.C. standing alone, slowing^?  down our boom is far from ^desirable," Downey said. We have  vast quantities of wealth to be  developed in this province and  we could survive fairly well  even if inflation increased a  little more, say up to five percent a year. But we do not  stand alone. And every province is not as dynamic ��� to  use Mr.  Bennett's word ��� as  British Columbia."  Not many people are honest  enough to admit that what they  are selling could be a bad buy,  but a business firm does just  that. in an unusual advertisement inserted in a Toronto  newspaper. Moreover, the advertisement states that the  questionable merchandise includes government bonds. And  the factor that has damaged  the goods, says the ad written  in the form of an open letter  to Finance Minister Sharp 'by  McConnel & Company Limited,  a member of the Investment  Dealers' Association of Canada,  is the government's own policy  of "controlled" inflation.  Inflation, says the company,  is "possibly the most inequitable tax" because its burden  falls heaviest on thrifty people  of modest means. Needing assured income and unable to  protect themselves by sophisti-  acted equity investment, they  rely on "money" investments���  savings accounts, bonds issued  by governments or corporations, and preferred stocks.  This form of savings has been  important to our economic progress, and has been encouraged, by successive governments-  as good for the country and  good for the individual. It is  still a good deal for the borrower, but not for the lender.  *     *     #  As an example of inflation's  unfair tax on the thrifty, the  advertisement, cites the case of  a person who owned a $1,000  Government of Canada bond  through 1965. Interest rates are  very high, in part probably because fewer investors are willing to put money into bonds, so  that the owner received the  good return of $55 as interest.  But the decrease in the value  of his $1,000 during the year,  resulting from the rise in the  consumer price index, was  $28.40, leaving an actual income of only $26.60. Further,  in this illustration the bond.'-  owner was paying income tax  at the rate of 25. percent, so  that the tax on the bond's $55  interest payment was $13.75. In  other words, without spending  his principle, the owner of the  bond had only $12.85 available  for spending.  *       *     ' *  To protect the  public's  savings     the     investment    house  makes the suggestion that it  may become necessary to  make" bonds payable in "constant" dollars; that is, if the  buying power of the dollar fell  by 25 percent during the term  of the loan, the owner of a  $1,000 bond would be repaid  $1,250 on redemption. Further,  as an immediate reform the  company suggests that Ottawa  should permit the taxpayer to  deduct from the income received from savings accounts, mortgages and all fixed return securities, the loss of principal  incurred during the year from  inflation as calculated by the  Dominion  Bureau  of Statistics.  These are unusual but not  illogical proposals since government is primarily responsible  for inflation.  Determining fac  tor in the value of money is,  basically, the supply of money  ��� a' matter that is now solely  inr the hands of governments.  "If the government stops increasing the quantity of money," the American economist  Henry Hazlitt wrote recently on  this point, "the average level  of wages and prices cannot be  raised. An excessive increase  in the price of any given product will either reduce demand  for that product or leave less  purchasing power for other  products. . But if the government continues to print more  money, and then tries to sit  on individual prices,-it will unbalance and disrupt production.  Only governmental monetary  policy, by commission or  neglect,   can   create inflation."  N.

It  started 25 years ago in Hong  Kong where Douglas Tann, a  civilian component of the Royal  Canadian Army Service Corps  served along with Canadians in  the war there. He concluded  that some day he would like to  settle in Canada.  Mr. Tann, a naturalized U.S.  citizen who has for the past five  years resided in that so-called  paradise and romantic city of  Honolulu, Hawaii, has come to  Gibsons, a choice that perplexes,  as experience has indicated that  this trend seems to be unusual,  in fact, in the opposite direction.

A practial linguist who is  fluent in six major Chinese languages, Indonesian and Malay  in addition, he possesses considerable/background knowledge  of commercial procedures in  Asia with a flair in dealing with  various nationalites in all walks  of Ife.  Among his accomplishments,  he successfully undertook a  three-month field trip, to acquire materials for research, on  behalf of the East-West Center,  University of Hawaii, to the  Philippines, Viet-Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Japan. Mr.  Tann had also offered his service, in similar capacity, to the  University of British Columbia  in 1965.

"Lincoln said  that all  men  were created equal ... he  didn't mention women."  -LlM^iOli  we planted  our  ty millionth tree.  Last week, in the Ash River Valley, on Vancouver Island, we placed in the soil a very  significant seedling'. It was the 50 millionth  tree we have planted since the start of our  reforestation program.  A statistician would tell you that within  approximately 80 years these 50 million  trees will yield 17 billion board feet of lumber. Enough to build one and three-quarter  million average homes. More than enough  to house the present population of Canada's  four western provinces.  Eachyear we plant more trees than any other  company in Canada. What does this reforestation program mean to you? It means  that in the forests we manage, B.C.'s most  important natural resource is being replaced: that tomorrow's jobs and prosperity  are already taking root.  Fifty million trees today...and in ten more  years we'll pass the hundred million mark.  Your grandchildren will have a wonderful  future here in British Columbia. We're  busy planting it.

The ceremony marking the  planting of the 50 millionth  seedling, a two-year-old Douglas fir, took place April 14 in  Ash River valley, near Alberni,  on Vancouver Island.  Coast News, April 21, 1966.       5  Band plans  return visit  Pressures discussed  The rafters at Elphinstone  Secondary School must still be  reverberating from the sound of  the Kitsilano Boys Band music  as brought about by close to 50  young stalwarts who performed  magnificently Saturday night.  Arthur Delamont, their conductor, traversed from Cole  Porter's Can-Can to Sullivan's  Lost Chord which, with 14 trumpets including Delamont's stirring solo preceding the massed  trumpets, brought down the  house. This number was played  as a result of the wish of C. P.  Ballentine, a friend of Mr. Delamont, and who once had a son  in the band.  There were many interesting  spots in the evening's entertainment including Mr. Delamot's  efforts to get some of the younger fry in the audience to blow  into instruments, but to those  ears attuned to beautiful music  the solo trumpeter left little to  be desired. His tone was that of  a master and he could have had  a solo spot which would have  been quite satisfying..  The band let itself go in various numbers, and. Alford's  Standard of St. George gave  them ample scope in a rousing  march. Chabrier's Esipana Rhap  sody called for snappy fingering, which proved the bandsmen to be alert and furthermore  with a liking for such music.  This was played for the first  time in public.  Selections from the Sound of  Music and the Hootenanny along  with Annie Get Your Gun provided up - to - date selections  which left the audience wanting  more.  An operatic melange pleased  the older section of the audience, providing excerpts from a  half-dozen operas and the various encores between programmed numbers were of the type  that invited the tapping of feet  but an audience participation  number gave hands and vocal  cords a chance to express themselves.  Mr. Klyne Headley, supervisor of music for the school district, an old friend of Mr. Delamont, was invited to the platform to conduct a number. The  band showed brittleness where  needed and a smooth tone when  smoothness was demanded. The  reed section showed proficiency  when called on to take over the  melody and the bass instruments although not too numerous helped swell the sound of  music splendidly when called  on.  Mr. Delamont when summarizing the evening for himself  and the band expressed the opinion that he would be delighted  to return to Gibsons which  pleased the audience to the point  where its applause left no doubt  they would welcome the band's  return.  Mr. Ballentine when presenting Centennial medallions to  Mr. Delamont and each member  of the band thanked all who had  taken part in arranging for the  band to appear. He expressed  his gratification at being able  to , hear this wonderful band  and hoped for an early return.  The hall was about three-quarters full but the enthusiasm of  those present overwhelmed the  vacant spots. ��� F.C.  Bypass concession  At the April meeting of Sechelt Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital April 14 in the lounge  of the Nurses' Residence, president Mrs. O. Moscrip in the  chair, members dedided to bypass operating May Day Concession booths this year. A float  will be entered and any member wishing to contribute ideas  should contact Mrs. A. Zeron  at 885-2883.  A bake sale," convened by  Mrs. D. Segouin and assisted  by Mrs. E. Paetkau and Mrs. G.  Hall was held at the hospital for  the staff and proved successful.  ���Preparations for the annual  Auxiliary Luncheon June 16, are  underway. Mrs. A. Swan and  Mrs. W. Burtnick are co-convenors. Mrs. S. Dawe reported  on the Bursary Fund to help a  future nurse. A motion was  passed stating that the successful bursary winner will receive  a grant of $25 per month for  the first year of training. Mrs.  J. Morgan was appointed chairman of the Bursary committee.  A hairdryer is to be purchased for use by the volunteer hairdresser in the hospital. Nabob  coupons are still needed to obtain a second dryer and these  should be given to Mrs. M. McDermid.  It was announced that a Lower Mainland regional meeting  was held April 21 at Lions Gate  Hospital, North Vancouver.  The next regular meeting will  be held May 12 in the lounge of  the Nurses' Residence. New  members are always welcome.  BOOKS WANTED  The Boy Scout book sale  slated for April 23 has been  postponed until a later date but  anyone having books to donate  can call 886-2201 and they will  be picked up and prepared for  the new date of sale.  Amid the 1200 delegates at the  Bayshore Inn in Vancouver during the Easter week were Mr.  M. B. Mactavish and Mr. Stan  Trueman, teachers representing  the 85 teachers in this school  district.  Pressures on secondary school  students brought concern to the  convention floor when the teachers' curriculum committee made  its report. "Because of world  tensions, societal pressures and  parent and employer anxieties,  children are being subject to  greatly increased pressures to  succeed academically," said the  report submitted by Mrs. I. A.  Cull, chairman and past president. "Children work far harder in school than do the members of the adult world. Some  function well under pressures,  but others suffer psychologically."  Harold Parrott, of Sooke,  claimed employers need all the  new facts if they are to accept  products of the new programs.  A university degree is no guarantee that a boy will be the  best kind of worker for that particular kind of job, he said. Our  other - than - traditional courses  are doing a fine job now and  lhe hiring swing is to technicians  and specialists trained in school  special courses. When every  child is in the right program  the most certainly destructive  pressures of the learning situation will be half gone.  Gradng and promotion are  soon to go if the curriculum directors have' their way. Levels  of attainment and continuing  progress in learning despite all  handicaps will see the old grade  system and promotion system  done away with. Already experiments going on in the province  have proved that old methods ���  of grading are insufficient to  produce the best possible student no matter what his ability.  A child in grade one who does  well will move right into the  next level while his colleague  still in the same classroom who  does poorly will gain more skills  at the same time.  "The world we live in cherishes illusions and dislikes reality," said Dr. G. Neil Perry,  speaking for the first time to  the teachers since his appointment as deputy minister of educations-  "Your students reflect society's reluctance to observe this  set of troublesome environmental factors," he said. They need  to be taught a method of penetrating, rigorous analysis. They  need wits razor-sharp. We must  teach them to do this in the artificial environment of the  school.  "More money must be spent  on education by all governments," said Rudy Kaser, president this past year for the  B.C. teachers. More money  means lower pupil-teacher ratio  and gives teachers time to individualize inStructon. Current elementary classes often run from  40 to 45 pupils and in secondary  schools from 35 to 40 students.  The provincial government  shares the cost of providing  teachers on a ratio of one teacher for every 37 pupils in elementary and one in 30 in secondary.  School boards have to bear the  full cost of every teacher added  above this ratio.  B.C. teachers voted fairly  unanimously to. tell the department of education that their  school leaving examinations  should be abolished.

Mrs. Dawson was Social Credit  candidate in the last provincial  election. She had no news as regards an election date  house stated that abolishment  would mean teachers lose control over these examinations as  the universities design their  own. Such loss will result in a  wild curriculum in secondary  schools to keep up. Students  have stated, three to one, in a  survey that they would work  harder towards a government  exam than towards a teacher-  prepared exam. Some system  for using 50% of exam results  and 50 % of teacher assessment  should be made, he insisted.  John Young; of Campbell River, insisted that he and his  staff were perfectly capable of  assessing the readiness of the  student to leave school on any  program and that exams were  no longer necessary. Freedom  from these government exams  would mean freedom to develop  our share of the continuing education program at a much  more up-to-date effectiveness,  he said. j  B.C. Teachers Federation officers elected for 1966-67 were:  President, J. H. Robertson, Kiti-  mat; first vice-president, R.-M.  Buzza, Burnaby; second vice-  president, Thomas Hutchison,  Windermerre.

Seek change  Gibsons village council will  seek .to place before the fall  convention of the Union of B.C.  Municipalities a resolution asking for deletion of a section in  Public Utility Commission water  regulations which states there  must be no discrimination in  the use of water.  Council is of the opinion that  there are circumstances where  the PUC should be looking after  the public generally and not individuals. The point was  brought out when a PUC letter  containing the wording of-this  section of regulations, asked  council to outline its water  policy, before the PUC decides  on whether a public hearing  should be held in connection  with the Norman Procknow application for water to his new  motel on the Sunshine Coast  highway.

The Davis Ottawa Diary  By  JACK DAVIS. M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  Finance Minister Sharp's first  budget has been welcomed by  friend and foe alike But some  eyebrows were raised when  Walter Gordon got up to speak  in the house of commons recently. Having resigned as finance  minister last November, he was  expected to keep quiet. Nevertheless Mr. Gordon felt that he  had something important to say.  He said that his first job,  when he was finance minister,  was to balance the budget. This  has been done. Now Canada  was booming. Nearly everyone  was at work and spending was  on the increase. Prices, as a result, were also beginning to rise.  So inflation, or the threat of inflation, presented the main  challenge insofar as the orderly expansion of the Canadian  economy was concerned.  3:       #       s}e  But Walter Gordon couldn't  resist saying something about  the growth of foreign ownership  and control in this country. Foreign investment, he said, had  brought great wealth to Canada.  But it had gone too far. Witness  the guidelines which had been  announced recently in Was'hing-  to. They applied, not only to  U.S. firms, but also to U.S.  owned branch plants in Canada.  Following them would cause  our exports to fall and our imports to increase. Unemployment would start to rise again  and U.S. dollars would be harder to come by. Mr. Gordon, in  effect, was saying that, while  we should still welcome other  people's savings, there was a  limit. This limit was when Canadian based firms stopped acting as if they had the best interests of Canada at heart.  *     *     *  Mr. Gordon, who incidentally  is writing a book on the role of  foreign investment and control  in Canada, then made three  main points. These were that:  (1) Large, foreign owned  companies, because they could  rely on their parent firms to  keep them in funds, could raise  money more readily than small  Canadian owned firms. In other  words, Canadians were more  likely to be affected by Mr.  Sharp's    budgetary    measures  NEED A CAR?  New or Used  Try  Peninsula Motor Products  Ltd.

These  problems, and opportunities, are  a result of the new Canada-U.S.  Free Trade Plan. Big U.S. owned companies, on the other  'hand,  can  take them in their  stride. ���'  (3) Mr. Sharp was now. wiping out the special depreciation  allowances . given to Canadian  owned firms by Mr. Gordon in  his budget of 1963. Perhaps this  concession could be dropped in  boom years. However Mr. Gordon thought that it should be  restored whenever the current  swing in capital investment  showed signs of tapering off.  His successor, Mr. Sharp,  might well ponder these points,  Mr. Gordon said. Otherwise he  was in an expansive mood. Mr.  Gordon congratulated Trade  and Commerce Minister Robert  Winters on his latest announcement. This was the one in which  Trade Minister Winters. had outlined a code of behavior of foreign corporations. Twelve points  were listed and, if these foreign companies met them all,  they would be first class corporate citizens insofar as Canada was concerned. But exhortation is all very well, Mr. Gordon said. If these Canadian  guide lines are not lived up to  they will have to be enforced.  Finally Mr. Gordon got around  to the 11 percent tax on machinery and equipment. This he  introduced back in 1963 in order  to balance the budget. Now that  the budget is balanced the 11  percent tax is on its way out.  Mr. Gordon said that he was  glad to see it go. Not only had  it added to our costs but it was  an obstacle to freer trade in  automotive products. Canadian  companies which were attempting to penetrate the U.S. market had to be relieved of this tax  if they were to obtain a large  volume   of   business   for   their  plants in this country.  Nothing that Mr. Gordon said  was embarrassing to the government. Indeed he was loud in  his praise for the way in which  Mr. Sharp had tackled his first,  budget. But one could not help  feeling that Mr., Gordon was  still, at heart, one of the most  nationalistic members of the  house of commons. Mr. Sharp,  his successor in the finance  Portfolio, is a freer trader and  an internationalist by comparison.

Advice for new gardeners  The first tools you should  choose for gardening this  spring are not hoes, rakes or  spades but pen, paper, seed and  nursery catalogues.  By doing some digging and  plotting with these, you cart  map out a plan that will give  your gardon-to-be a better appearance with less cost, time  and effort.  When making your plan, consider first the house, walks,  driveways, and so on and work  on creating your    garden    for  year-round beauty.  Don't overstep yourself in  your eagerness to try new material. Keep your lawn one  solid expanse; don't chop it up  with flower beds and tree arrangements that only break the  pattern and make cutting, watering and general maintenance  difficult.  Try to picture the eventual  size of the plants or trees and  fit them into the pattern. Don't  let them crowd each other or  cover   walkways,   or   windows.  Coast News, April 21, 1966.       7  Booh review  THE GOLDEN CITY. London  between the Fires 1666-1941. By  Bernard Ash. J. M. Dent &  Sons (Canada) Limited, Toronto. 224 pp. $5.25.  In The Golden City, Bernard  Ash gives us a historical essay  on the City of London between  the Great Fire of 1666 and the  bombings of 1940 and 1941.  His story is limited to the  mile-square area which is the  city proper and he gives a running description of it, politically and socially, as it moved  through the period of nearly  300 years between the fires.  This is straight reading to  gleam a mental impression  rather than a book to study for  facts. ��� Percy Maddux.  WILL INCREASE COURSES  Construction of a new wing  to the B.C.

Ralph Edwards, an outstanding pioneer  who has homesteaded at the  head of the Bella Coola Valley  for over 50 years.  The film, sponsored by the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club, was  presented in person by Mr. Edwards' son, John E. Edwards,  who made the film and who  gave a comimentary on it.,  At Lonesome Lake, an isolated spot 75 miles from Bella  Coola and 20 miles from the  nearest post office, Ralph Edwards reared and;educated his  family. He tilled tlie rich virgin  soil of the valley which repaid  him with bountful crops. At 62  he learned to fly and now, at 75,  he is an acknowledged aeronautics engineer and flies his plane  regularly to Bella Coola and  Vancouver.  The film has some excellent  nature pictures. There are intimate studies of the deer who  wander around' the homestead  fearlessly and take food from  the hands and mouth of Ralph  Edwards; glimpses of moose,  elk and other wild life which  -abounds; magnificent pictures  of the trumpeter swans which  return year after year in increasing numbers to winter at  Lonesome Lake, where the Edwards family spreads food for  them and breaks the ice to enable them to feed.  Among the fine scenic studies  were some of the Hunlen Falls  which have a free fall of 1300  feet and which John Edwards  ���  '                                , *                            '  ���  -  ��� ���.  ���  ���  WE CAN SUPPLY  YOU  WITH , .
