Aided by his lawyerhe  showed how Midway Grocery,  the bowling alley, B.C. Telephone company office, iVLA  homes in Henry road vicinity,  Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza;1 the  drug store, a bakery and others  were getting water and because  he was not getting water discrimination was being shown.  During one part of the hearing when the chainman asked  Mr. Procknow whether he had  given any consideration to the  difficulties faced by the, village  Mr. Procknow intimated that he  was not concerned" with tihem  at all and if he wanted to put  up a 50 room hotel he would do  so.  Considerable discussion evolved around the real estate involved and how Mr. Procknow  ���would have access to the Farnham house water supply for the  motel. There was also discussion on the availability of a water supply from the P & W gravel workings, which Mr. Procknow said he had considered.  During Mr. Procknow's testimony he said he did not have a  building permit for construction  *of the motel.  The "case for the village council assisted by Mr. McQuarrie  included testimony from Charles  Gooding the village clerk, Martin. J. J.

The second role is as a contractor for works or services  for individual member municipalities who have the authority  to enter into such contracts.  This applies to incorporated  municipalities and improvement districts only. Examples  are building inspection; engineering services, planning services, construct or maintain  water works, sewer and works,  and the central purchasing of  equipment and supplies. Full  ccsts borne by the contracting  member.  ��� The third-.role, is as -a municipal council in "a7 limited sensb  for small areas in unorganized  territory where there are too  few people to warrant local incorporation.  It could retail water or sewer  service or provide other local  services such as fire protection  and charge for them by general taxation, frontage tax or  user charges. Such works can  only be instituted by a benefiting area vote or in some instances by petition.  Selection of directors will be  on a population basis with a  voting unit representing 1,000  or less. The municipalities of  Gibsons and Sechelt would  have representation on the  board also on a population  basis. The size of the board  would be based on the number  of municipalities and electoral  areas involved.  SUPERFLUITY SALE  A superfluity and plant sale  (will be held at St. Bartholo-  Imew's Anglican Parish hall,  iNorth Road and Sunshine Coast  (Highway starting at 10 a.m. Friday, May 20. Convenors of the  isale report that everything one  will need can be found on the  tables of the superfluity sale.  Judging from past events a surprising array and assortment of  goods will be available.  Students  up in air  Thirty-six grade 7 students  from Sechelt with Mr. M. Mc-  Tavish and Miss Bell, their student, teacher, had a rewarding  excursion, to Vancouver last  Thurslay. Starting at the airport they were taken on a flight  iri a CPA turbo-prop Viscount,  around Howe Sound, along the  North Shore mountains-to Mission and back to Sea Island in  a big sweep over the Fraser  Valley.  On their return they were  shown over the CPA hangars  and watched .the everyday routine work of checking and preparing airliners for flight. Mr.  McTavish and his students were  ..enthusiastic* about the recep-  ���: tion given them by CPA?; '���:��� pppp--  Also-of' interest" was the visit  to the Sea Island meterological  station which will result in a  personal interest in weather  reports. They launched a hydrographic balloon and studied  modern research. equipment.  The afternoon brought civic  and social studies with a .visit  to the Vancouver police station  where they sat at a court session and inspected the building  including the jail cells.  Grade 7 students raised the  money for this trip, $120 bus  fare and $100 for the flight, by  the sale of hot dogs and a rummage sale, so as not to encroach  on their school budget for excursions and also allow another  class to make a trip this year  too.  90th  BIRTHDAY  Miss May Walker was the  guest of honor on May 10 at St.  Aidan's Parish Hall when  friends gathered to felicitate  'her on her 90th birthday.  She was seated in a comfortable chair and a card table  bearing many lovely gifts was  brought to her.  Tea and refreshments were  served by Mrs. M. Thyer and  Mrs. A. Attrill, and included a  cake, complete with candles  and decorated with pansies,  made by Mrs. T. S. Mallory.  Forty guests signed the autograph book.  Retain committee Gibsons chamber urges  Disbanding of the federal RDA  committee in favor of turning  its efforts to becoming the provincial government regional district committee did not meet  with approval at Monday night's  meeting of Gibsons and District  ChaiKbsr of Commerce. The  chamber urged that the RDA  co .vmittce continue as a separate entity but co-operate with  any other committee working  oi the development of the area.  At last week's meeting at Sechelt when Chris Woodward, of  the provincial department of  municipal affairs outlined how  a regional district could be  formed it was moved that the  RDA committee disband and  turn its operations to the regional district proposition. The RDA  committee  was  named  by  the  three chambers of commerce  in the area and it would be up  to them to decide what should  happen to the committee, chamber members were advised.  Ferry overload parking on the  highway brought the suggestion  that Hon. Phil Gaglardi be urged to construct a third lane on  the .highway at the ferry ramp  entrance to accommodate waiting traffic which now occupies  the section of the highway  used for traffic headed towards  Port "Mellon. At times ROMP  have been forced to direct traffic at both ends of the traffic  line so as to allow through traffic to get by.  A suggestion the post office  remain open all day Saturday  aid close on Wednesday was  discussed ar.d left in anoyance  for the time being in view of  Postmaster James Marshall's  view that the time is approaching when Gibsons post office  will reach a new rating and be  open six days a week.  Gibsons Pioneer Museum society asked for a donation. It was  decided that the chamber was  not able to afford donations and  suggested that every member  of the chamber join the society  and help out in that way.  At the suggestion of A. E.  Ritchey who was unable to attend, the chamber supported the  suggestion that a culvert fill be  used in place of the present  Granthams bridge when time  comes to make the change. It  was also hoped that a pedestrian  lane be made part of the crossing over the culvert.  Walt Nygren brought up the  matter of the annual Gibsons  picnic, organized by fishermen  and others at Plumpers Cove  which he announced would take  place Sunday, June 4 with Les  Peterson assisting. The Pannix  have arranged to provide music.  Gibsons and provincial authorities concerned with crosswalks will be approached to repaint crossing walks where  needed and that a new one be  placed at the school road entrance to Gibsons Elementary  School. Letters will be sent to  the proper authorities.  Following the business meeting and dinner at Welcome  Cafe Britt Varcoe supplied some  music and Phil Lawrence, recreation director for the area  showed movie films on the Amazon in Brazil and Canoe Country.

Cobb, a famous United States humorist who  came up with the expresison that one should learn all the rules,  everyone of them so that you will know how to break them.  The Cobb remark came to mind at a meeting in Sechelt when  it was arranged that a certain committee be dissolved so that  another committee to move in a different direction could be formed. This happened when the meeting, addressed by a provincial  municipal department official outlined what a regional district  meant. The meeting voted with a show of hands in favor of forming a regional district. Then the chairman of the ARDA committee proposed that his committee be wound up and that it be replaced by a committee for a regional district.  Just for the record let it be known that the ARDA committee was organized by the three chambers of commerce, Sechelt,  Gibsons and Pender Harbor and it should be up to those three  chambers to decide whether the ARDA committee will become  defunct.  One suggestion put to the chair outlined the possibility of  using the water group of the ARDA committee as the nucleus  for the regional committee. This was ruled out of order because  of a previous motion that the ARDA committee should take over.  There will be need for the ARDA committee in future months  and for the area to be without some means of provincial and  federal authority approach to an organized body it could be fatal  to chances for obtaining. ARDA assistance.  Perhaps the .chambers of commerce should act quickly and  do something to preserve the ARDA committee. We may need  its services before we get into serious depths in the regional district proposition. It would be extremely dissappointing for Jack  Davis, M.P., to discover when he was able to make a move that  we have no ARDA committee.

Dan Campbell, provincial minister of municipal af-  , fairs has moved wisely in asking the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to assist  in streamlining the present  Municipal act. Mr. Campbell is  the first minister in many years  to visualize that municipal problems are becoming a source of  irritation simply because of an  unweildy Municipal act accompanied by an increasing need  for paying strict attention to  spreading municipal problems  which are becoming greater as  the population of British Columbia grows.  Judging from Mr. Campbell's  thinking not only does the act  require streamlining but 'the  thinking of municipal officials  also needs revision. He is trying to gauge the future by forming various grades of municipal  structures, beyond the present  structure in municipal affairs.  He is having, trouble in finding  a formula which, will have general acceptance judging from  the reception his ideas have received so far.  *���       sH        *  He is striving to do away  with small areas seeking to  form fire and garbage districts,  as an example. Having observed the formation of regional  health units he is looking' towards the formation of regional  areas which can accomplish the  setting up of needed services  over a wider area with greater  ease. He is striving to organize  what are now called the unorganized areas.  At first he visualized this  area as a region spreading  from Powell River , area to  Squamish but has apparently  found this too cumbersome and  has settled on the Port Mellon  to Jervis Inlet territory as being an acceptable unit which  can be welded as a unit.  * *       *  The present Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit does not seem to  be working too well from the  point of view of cohesion between the various areas. It .  might work well enough for departmental officials to cover  but it is not getting the needed  cohesion from the public officials of the various sections  involved. , Meetings . at distant  points have not v produced  quorum attendance.  The plan earlier envisaged  making regional,school districts  and the health unit area was  considered to be the desireable  size. However this does not appear to have got beyond the  paper planning stage. There is  where it may stay.  * *     *  If the Sunshine Coast area ,  from Port Mellon "to Jervis Intel can be left on its own to  develop as a regional district  it is possible such development  can become a fact. It is a unit  which can be developed within  on regional basis as its problems are much the same from  one end to the other. That same  area is now being used in a  guinea, pig role for a possible  general recreation setup for  other parts of the province.  Maybe Mr. Campbell, who is  having some troubles with his  municipal ideas in the Campbell  River area, his own constituency, might find some solace in  getting this area organized to  his liking.  His department we hope is  well aware of what New Brunswick has done in  the general  municipal field. Most readers  are not so aware. To help those  readers here is an editorial  which appeared in the Regina  Leader - Post, offering some  views on the New' BrunsWict  move: .: ���  There's a mistaken idea  abroad that under the sweeping  governmental re-organization  being put into ' effect in New  Brunswick, real property.is being relieved of taxation for education.  This erroneous impression no  doubt was fostered by the assertion that under the new plan  the province takes responsibility  for services which apply to people, such as. education,' and  health and welfare, while municipalities are left with responsibility for services directly, related to property. The latter include police and fire protection,  water and sewer systems,  streets, arid sidewalks.  * * *  All property will pay a tax  for education of $1.50 for. each  $100 of assessed value based on  market value. This works out  to a tax of 15 mills. The province will put a uniform assessment into effect,/subject to revision every five years.  This clearly doesn't lift completely the burden of education  costs from the shoulders of property owners. It simply places  a ceiling of 15 mills on this  levy.  Under the New Brunswick  plan, the province will collect  all taxes at the local government level. The municipalities  will forward warrants, to the  provincial government covering  levies on. property for municipal  purposes/The province will collect the money and-pay it to  the municipalities.  The plan also provides for  cash grants to municipalities,  with the proviso these in total  must not exceed 70 percent of  the total expenditure of any one  municipality in carrying out its  responsibilities.  The province will establish a  uniform salary schedule for  teachers. This will put an end.  to the procedure of playing one  district against another as the  teachers endeavor to maintain  the upward trend of their salaries.  *       *       *  The province will be divided  into 34 school districts. A board  will administer each district,  but while elected members will  be in the majority on each  board, there will be a minority  of government appointees. The  boards will look after the day-  to-day administrative details,  and they will have the power  to hire or dismiss the teachers.  Annual budgets prepared by  the boards will be subject to  review by the provincial government.  Premier Robichaud is at- ,  lished. Likewise, through the  grant system, poorer munici-  tempting to sell the new plan  to the people on the basis that  it is "a program for, equal opportunity."  The program, according to  Premier Robichaud, assures  "minimum standards of services  and opportunities for all citizens, regardless of the financial  resources of the locality in  which they live."  With the province absorbing  all education costs beyond the  uniform 15-mill contribution by  real property, standards in  poor   localities, will   be   raised  THE  COAST NEWS  19 YEARS il.ll  Davis Bay wharf was ordered  closed for about six weeks while  repairs are made.  Tenders were called for the  burning of debris on the cleared portion of land for the new  high school site in Gibsons area  and the site for the Roberts  Creek elementary school. .  A Memorial Playground fund  thermometer was displayed for  the first time and the mark on  the thermometer showed that  $500 had been collected.  ���Port Melton's library observed its first anniversary and held  a social event serving refreshments to mark the occasion.  Fire starting around the chimney completely destroyed the  home of Mr. and Mrs. B. Kames  in the Halfmoon Bay area.  Peder Berdahl, born in Trond-  heim, Norway, in 1889 and who  came to Gibsons area in 1907  died at his home. He was a director of Howe Sound Cannery  and Elphinstone Co-Operative  association.  At a Roberts Creek meeting,  Mr. A. Funnell, school trustee,  spoke of the preparation of  plans for three new schools, one  an eight room high scool for  Gibsons. Roberts Creek and Madeira Park we're to get smaller  schools.  to the minimum that is estab-  paMties'will be eligible for assistance up to 70 percent of  their needs in carrying out their  responsibilities and Improving  their services.  To help the province raise  the requisite revenues for financing the program, the provincial sales tax is being praised  to six percent.  As far as Saskatchewan is  concerned, the program possesses many aspects which might  be termed "revolutionary." Included among these are provisions for greater direct control by the province over education, and the arrangement'  under which all property taxation will be levied by the province.  Strong arguments could be advanced for both    these    steps."  the strongest is that if a province is to relieve the municipalities   of   some   of  their   re-,  sponsibilities, it is only reasonable to expect the province to  desire to extend its-controls to  assure the     maximum    return :���  from  the tax dollars  that are  spent.  Those who are clriioring for  the province and the federal  government to contribute more  toward the cost of, elementary  and secondary education have  the occasion for sober reflection. There are definite limits  to which this assistance can be  given without the senior governments taking some control  over the spending of this money  by the   local   governments.  Those who pay the piper  eventually demand the right to  call the tune.

They came to St. Patrick's in Toronto in 1881, and  to St. Peter's in St. John, N.B.  in 18847 ,Their Vancouver centre has been flourishing for the  past 45 years, known as Our  Lady of Perpetual -Help at 10th  and Crown.

Log sinkers  The Davis Ottawa Diary  Each year over a million do-  lars worth of logs sink during  sorting or storage    in    water.  Some   logs   sink   immediately  when dumped into water;  others gradually    lose    buoyancy  and   disappear.   If the   logger  had a simple means of separating the potential  "sinkers" he  could give these logs additional  seasoning before dumping them.  The    British    Columbia    Research Council has been investigating  this   problem  for  the  past few years. Field examinations of 25 log characteristics,  potentially related to floatability,  were made on  1,000 hemlock logs,  which     species     is  principally involved. Then during  28   weeks'   immersion   the  floatability   of   individual   logs  was   measured.   An   electronic  computer processed the resulting voluminous data in  search  of    any    relationship    between  floatability and log characteristics. Although 10. of    the     25  characteristics proved to be associated with    floatability,    no  basis . for   accurate prediction  emerged.  Finally it was established  that accurate prediction of float-  ability can be made only from  the initial specific gravity of  the whole log. Since this property is difficult to evaluate, in."  the forest, attention is now  focusing on the separation of  logs of low buoyancy at time  of dumping.  By  JACK i.DAVIS.  M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  The debate on redistribution  is over. All the M.P.'s have  had their say and the constituency maps are on their way  back .to the redistribution committees. These independent  committees have the last word.  So it is to them that we must  look for the next political map  of Canada ��� one which divides  the nation up into ;265 ridings  each of which has an average  population of .70,000 people.  The redistribution committees  are independent of politics.  Gone are the bad old days when  the politicians themselves decided where their riding boundaries would be. Gerrymandering is therefore a thing of the  past. Every voter will have  equal representation in Ottawa.  The statisticians, obviously,  have taken Over. Some of us  think that they may even have  gone too far!  Agriculture Minister Joe  Greene put it in a nutshell when  he said that some of his constituents in Renfrew South  were being cast into outer darkness. These Ontario folk naturally look to Renfrew and Pembroke as the towns around  which their lives revolve. The  Ontario committee however,  has attached them to different  centres like Lindsay and Na-  panee. Not only do they have  little in common but political  meetings will be difficult to arrange in this case. Indifference  will take the place of political  activity and democracy, as Joe  Greene put it, will suffer as a  result.  We have a different problem  out on the West Coast. The  proposed constituency of Coast-  Chilcotin is a geographic monstrosity. It looks like a large,  lop-sided "V". One side runs  up the West Coast from Gibsons  to the northern tip of the Queen  Charlotte Islands. The other  runs up from Squamish as far  inland as Williams Lake. Loggers and fishermen are therefore being lumped in together  with the miners and ranch-  hands of the interior. It will  take days to cover this vast  area. Not only that, but it will  'But I dont" want my curls cut off . .. they're hep!"

TR 9-5211  be extremely difficult for our  political parties to organize  their memberships on a broad  constituency-wide   basis.  At the other end of Coast  Capilano we have a new riding  called Burnaby-Seymour. The  connecting link is the Second  Narrows Bridge. However this  Pakistan-like arrangement also  presents difficulties from an organizational point of view.  Those who live on the North  Shore think of Burnaby as a  very different part of the world  and vice versa.  Personally, I think more attention should have been paid  to municipal boundaries. People  are accustomed to thinking in  terms of the communities in  which they live. Highways and  railway lines also influence the.  way in which they organize  their affairs. So constituencies  should also embrace these  major avenues of communication. Then, and only then, will  we have done all we could to  ensure that every Canadian has  ample opportunity to participate  in the political affairs of our  nation.  The new maps, of course,  will not last for. ever. They  will  change  as  our population  Coast News, May 19, 1966.      3  __������ i  changes. Some constituencies  will grow and others will decline as the drift to the cities  continues. Constituency boundaries, in other words, will be  moved. But these additional  changes must come after our  next census taking in 1971.

He will be Jack: louden who will"'be paid $50 a  month for a part time'job keeping ��� tab on sleeper -cars and  others who park too long iri specified areas.  The work is not expected to  be a full time vocation but one;  which will let-people know there  is someone on the job noting  parking irregularities.. Other  minor policing type jobs will be  part of his work  At the same time council noted that the entrances to the village do not display signs noting  the speed limit. New signs will  be obtained with information  on them advising visitors of  speed regulations. /  A letter from Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  asked council to mark beaches  and parks with signs so visitors  would know their way around.  The problem was turned over to  Councillor Norman Mackay who  is chairman' of the parks and  beaches committee. He will see  wjhat can be done about identifying the required spots.  Council received a complaint  over booming in the bay, the  letter maintaining the present  situation was dangerous with  youngsters playing on the beach  in danger" of falling between  logs. 'Fish "traps were also involved. Harbor-master Harry  Smith was asked to check on  the situation as booming was  not supposed to be done in that  area.  The problem of a sidewalk on  the highway uphill towards  Reid's corner was left for the  provincial roads department to  consider. This highway is within the roads department jurisdiction.       -    .  The well which cost $3,559 at  Gower Point and Winn Roads,  now producing a flow of water  is .under supervision of Martin  J. J. Dayton, professional engineer, wh0 will, gauge the flow  and report to council when he  has completed his tests. This  must be done: before council can  consider w$ait to do about a  plebiscite to: raise money for  the building of a reservoir to  contain .the-flow.  (Council received, a report that  Seaside Plaza in its lower part  could be a fire menace and has  asked the village fire marshall  to look into the situation and report ori his findings.

British Columbians made an  average of nearly'4.5 million  local telephone calls daily in  1965, compared with fewer than  1 million in 1945. v  School trustees face |p^ai_idary!  Policy    discussion    occupied  considerable   time  at   Monday  night's meeting of the district  school board  and  one  of  the  policy  items   that. received .a  good deal of attention concerned noises created by construction work during class periods.  . The-policy statement asked for  by    the -teachers - association  . placed the board in a quandary,  whether  to  have  a  policy  to  allow principals to order noise  stopped, whether a policy should  be laid down for contractors to  follow or whether    the    board  should strive to get between the  two.  Trustees considered both  sides, that of the teacher vs  any time lost on construction  ���which would cost the board  money. Principal George. Cooper  Of Gibsons Elementary school  referred to noise made by the  maintenance staff of the school  system who when replacing a  :wmdow at the elementary  school were riot on the quiet  side. Another episode concerned work under Langdale school  flooring which it was suggested  could have been done at a more  convenient time. Trustees after  discovering no easy solution7 decided to leave it over for further  consideration.  One policy .mat  ter agreed to was the holding  of one board meeting a month  on the fourth Monday of each  month. ���  Money unused therefore available, from Referendum 5 will  be utilized in replacement of a  change of period clock, the one  now in use having reached an  age where repairs would be as  expensive as a new clock.

COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  If there is one comment which  should be made on the music  festival held Saturday in Elphinstone Secondary School in  a hall packed with 700 persons,  it would be that the organization of the event was outstanding. It ran like clockwork, a  tribute for those Who did tire  planning.  Starting with the parade from  the school area down to the  post office with the Sechelt Indian Band and majorettes,  Scouts, Cubs, Girl Guides and  Brownies, to the singing of The  Queen to close the event at 4  p.4n., any hitches that occurred were barely noticeable.  Magistrate and Mrs. Charles  C. Mittlesteadt of Pender Harbour were on the saluting stand  as the parade passed by. At  the school grounds Mr. George  Ruggles arranged the order of  rnardh and Mr. Don Andow as  parade marshall kept the parade moving toward its dispersal  point at the post office.  ���From there participants in  the festival were transported by  school bus to the auditorium  where proceedings started with  the Scouts presenting their col- *  ors.

He  was  aided by seven  pages  of  script  arranged   by  Ray   Hol-  brook. Mr. Klyne Headley led  the orchestra of young people  in the opening numbers. A surprise came when young Kevin  Walters of Sedhelt Elementary  stepped forward at Mr. Head-  ley's   bidding   and   supplied   a  clarinet solo, surprisingly good  for his age.

In announcing the grant made  under thhe Centennial Publications Assistance program of the  Centennial Commission, John  Fisher, Centennial commissioner, stressed that this project is  but one instance of the role to  be played in the 1967 celebrations both by women and by  universities.

In  fact only a small proportion of  the- area population     will    be  enumerated   this   week, . Earle  Dawe, of Gibsons, census commissioner   for   the    area   announces,       y  - In theory the census starts  June 1 and continues on until  completed, he said. In actual  fact, because a majority of census takers are new to their  jobs, only a small number- of:  names are completed on the /  first;- dayV; And on the second  day, Thursday, June 2, they  meet together' with the census  commissioner to review problems they have encountered in  their field work.  It is therefore on the third  day, Mr- Dawe stated, that the  census gets into y high gear.

The listing of businesses for  the Census of Merchandising at  the end of the 1966 fiscal year  will also be completed within  that time.  The census schedules are  carefully checked by the census commissioner and get a  further check at the regional  office of Dominion Bureau of  Statistics. Compilation of figures, and the release of all statistical data is made at Ottawa  after returns are processed  through the ,_ computer centre  there.  Mr. Dawe stressed the need  for public co-operation. He said  that this need was emphasized  by the. slogan being used for  the 1966 census, which is: Be  Counted for Canada. The law  ��� requires everybody to answer  the census questions, but the  census can only be complete  and accurate if the public cooperates,  he said.  He; also emphasized the  secrecy of the census answers,  pointed out that everybody  working for the census, which  Dominion Bureau of Statistics  administers, is required to take  an oath of secrecy.  4th ANNUAL AWARDS  MacMillan Bloedel Limited is  again offering an award of $500  for outstanding individual journalistic achievement in British  Columbia weekly newspapers.

The first touch calling service  will be offered in the Trinity  central office area, using new  telephone instruments, featuring  a panel of ten push buttons in  place of the traditional rotary  dial. It will be available only to  customers with individual or  two-party line service because  of the nature of central office  equipment required for its operation.

In recent years 11 deaths  have resulted from SCUBA Diving due to inexperience, lack  of knowledge of maintenance of  equipment, or of basic diving  rules.  Wet suits should not be given  to youngsters unless first a  thorough medical exam proves  the youngster is fit for diving,  and unless he takes instructions  from a qualified instructor.  Never buy used equipment unless it.is checked out thoroughly by a qualified diver.  Obey three basic rules���Never *  dive alone even when qualified  to dive.
