For the past 18 years  it has been handled through local insurance agents.  This is the report the insurance committee presented the  board:  No tenders were received from  local insurance agents or brokers in response to the invitation  to bid on the board's blanket  all property insurance coverage  The committee recommends  the .acceptance of ^Armstrong  and Taylor's proposal to insure  the board's property against  fire, for a three year premium  of $17,973, based on a total insurable value of $2,527,986. (Elphinstone Secondary School,  valued at $687,000, would be  covered up to $750,000). The  committee further recommends  that Armstrong and Taylor be  appointed as the board's sole  insurance broker with complete  responsibility to administer the  entire insurance program for  the board.  j When chairman Joseph Horvath called for the vote, Mrs.  Peggy Volen voted against.  Those in favor were Trustees  Mrs. Celia Fisher, Leo Johnson,  Architect sketch plans have  been submitted to Victoria on  the Langdale and Gibsons Elementary School projects. The  Langdale sketch plans were approved and working drawings  will shortly be sent to Victoria  for final approval. The planning committee reported.  The Gibsons sketch plans  were rejected by Victoria as  being  not  according     to     the  Don Douglas, W. P. Malcolm  and Cliff Thorold.  Mrs. Volen on learning that  only one insurance company  was invited to tender when the  motion calling for tenders referred to three companies,  sought a reason for the change.  Secretary Treasurer Peter  Wilson explained that even  though three companies could  have tendered they would have  all presented the same set of  figures in view of their using  the same brokerage sources. He  maintained they all re-insured  through the same sources.  Chairman Horvath queried  the action and Mr. Wilson re-.,  plied that sometimes conditions  change after a motion has been  passed. The board was informed that the committee decided  to write one firm only, on the  presumption they would all  quote the same figures.  This change in insurance companies will mean that Sept. 15  will be the cutoff date for the  policies now in force. On that  date those policies will be cancelled and new ones issued by  the new insurer will be in force.  It will also mean that there will  be a rebate on the old policies  to the school board amounting  to probably $5,000 or more on  policies cancelled before their  expiry date.  * *  original submission and as being too costly for the money  available. The committee plans  to visit Victoria to discuss this  matter further.  Sketch plans for Elphinstone  Secondary school and the school  board office have now been  sent to Victoria for approval.  The architect's cost estimates  are given below, with the Referendum figures for comparison.  The    proposed    new    school  4 board office to be erected on the  ���old   School   Hall   grounds.   The  11 old hall will be moved into the  I background  and  the  new  two-  level building to cost in vicinity   of   $60,000   with   equipment  will take its place.  The upper  part will contain the board office and board room with offices for staff and the lower section will be an educational centre with spate for the  schools  library, and offices for the var-  ��� ious    departmental    adminstra-  tors.  Big day at  Port Mellon  Local 297 of IBPS and PMW  have arranged a Labor Day  program, at Seaside Park, Port  Mellon.  Mr. Michael Blaney and Mr.  Fred  Inglis   are   in   charge  Preceding the festivities, on  Saturday, Sept. 3, a dance, to  begin at 9 p.m. will be held at  the  Community  Hall.  At 10 a.m. on Labor Day,  Sept. 5, races for both children  and adults, with cash prizes for  the winners, will be the first  event of the day.  Eight loggers from local operations are available to display  their log-rolling skills.  A jousting event, using boats  and jousting poles will test the  dunking abilities of contestants.  Hot dogs and pop will be provided by Local 297 for the children.  Three were nominated Monday to run for Mackenzie constituency in the Monday, Sept.  12 provincial election. The three  are:  Mrs. Isobel Pear. Dawson,  housewife of Powell River, for  the Social Credit party; Anthony  John Gargrave, lawyer of Vancouver for the New Democratic  party and Joseph L. Benner,  merchant of Sechelt for the  Liberal party.  Plans for an all-candidate  meeting in Gibsons may not  materialize in view of the tight  schedule Mrs. Dawson has  which does not give her an open  date. However a meeting with  Mr. Gargrave and Mr. Benner  as speakers is under considera-  .ticn.  Pool funds  questioned  Two items aroused interest at  Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons municipal council. One  concerned how the money was  to be raised for the proposed  Centennial swimming pool and  the other was the proposed  transfer of Kinsmen Park from  the Westminster Anglican diocese to Gibsons municipality.  The first issue was raised by  Councillor Fred Feeney when  Councillor Sam Fladager reported the status of the Centennial swimming pool. He wondered where the money was  coming - f rom'r He -learned " that'  at present the Centennial committee can account for about  $9,000 and according to Centennial chairman Fladager the rest  would be raised without trouble.  Chairman Wes Hodgson  brought up the matter of Kinsmen Park and read to council  a letter from the diocesan office which agreed to turn the  park over to the village if it  could comply with reservations  made in the Dugald will that  the area be used for free sports  and games for the young. In  other words it is to be kept as  a   public   park   for   public  Council has for consideration  sufficient information on which  to come to a conclusion. In the  meantime the Kinsmen club has  signified it would be quite willing to let the village have the  park under its control. The issue will be brought up at next  meeting of council.  School to  get pool  The district school board at  last Thursday night's meeting  decided to interest Gibsons  Centennial committee in building its Centennial swimming  pool project at either Gibsons  Elementary school or Elphinstone   Secondary  school.  Placing of the pool was left  open to allow the Centennial  committee wider discretion in  case it ran into soil difficulties.  Former council chairman A. E.  Ritchey who has done bulldoz-  in gat both sites told the board  that there might be a hardpan  problem. Present at the meeting were Councillor Sam Fladager, chairman of Gibsons Centennial committee, Don Hauka,  Eugene Yablonski and B. Littlejohn, committee members.  Secretary-treasurer Peter Wilson said he checked the School  act and could not find reason,  why school land could not be  used. Mr. Fladager added that  he had checked with Provincial  Centennial chairman L. J. Wallace and said Mr. Wallace was  not holding Gibsons Centennial  too close on location of the pool.  Chairman  to resign  Mrs. Christine Johnston, chair  man of Sechelt's village coun-  cilihas: decided Jo,rjesiign. at. the  end of this year thus renouncing  the second year of her term.  Mrs. Johnston who has been  re-elected by acclamation for  each term she has served since  incorporation of the village has  decided she has had enough of  Sechelt's municipal politics, par  ticularly that of the last couple  of years.  While there is no official notice of her resignation before  council, she has implied definitely that she has had enough of  municipal affairs and is quite  willing to let someone else bear  the brunt after her term comes  to its half-way mark at the end  of the year.  During the last few months  she has not only had to battle  with council disputes but faced  a serious operation necessitating her stay in St. Mary's Hospital for a period in between  council meetings.  100 hear Gaglardi at Sechelt  Project  Referendum  Architect  Gibsons  $191,800  $238,000  Langdale  56,500  53,000  School Board Office  54,000  56,500  Elphinstone   ,  221.600  226.000  $523,900  $573,500  There is a potential deficit  of $50,000 so far, based on the  plans as drawn.  No sketch plans have yet been  submitted on the remaining  building projects on the Referendum, which appear as follows:  Halfmoon Bay $ 3,000  Madeira Park 61,000  Roberts Creek 4,700  Sechelt 12,000  $80,700  Sketch   plans   for   the   other  projects   are   available   at   the  school  board   office   for   study  by all interested parties.  Letters have now been received from three landscape architects expressing interest in  working with the board and its  buildings architect. The committee plans to interview one  or more of    these     landscape  architects and to bring a recommendation to the board at a  future date.  A tender of $100 has been received from A. J. Bergnach for  the paint shop on the Maintenance Shop site. This being  the only tender received, the  committee recommended its acceptance.  Punt results  Kirk Thomas, Gibsons, and  Gary Davis, Port Mellon, were  finalists in the Little Leo Punt  Pass and Kick contest held Sunday at Empire Stadium, Vancouver.  Kirk scored for second place  and Gary placed third, winning  footballs autographed by the  B.C. Lions.  More than 100 persons attended the reception for Hon. Philip  Gaglardi, minister of highways  who appeared in Sechelt's Legion hall last Friday afternoon  supporting the candidacy of  Mrs. Isabel Dawson, Socred can  didate for Mackenzie constituency.  Coffee, tea and cookies preceded talks by Mrs. Dawson and  Hon. Mr. Gaglardi. Harvey  Hubbs was chairman. Mrs.  Dawson stressed the need for  more governmental attention  being paid to senior citizens  and Hon. Mr. Gaglardi in his  opening remarks stressed governmental policies in this direction.  He cited the example in his  own constituency in aid of senior citizens, where an $850,000  senior citizens complex is being built containing 84 suites for  single and double occupancy.  The provincial government provided one-third of the cost he  said and occupants pay $45 a  month for single suites and $67  for doubles with no heat or  power bills to pay.  He urged his listeners to take  a good look at Socred free enterprise policies then pointed  to the diametrically opposite situation in Mackenze constituency  where a socialist NDP opposed  to free enterprise, was elected.  He asked his listeners to tell  him of one place in the world  where socialist theories had survived.  The NDP was exploiting labor and in amplification pointed  to the struggle now between  union officials within the NDP,  with the party leader, Mr. Strachan, battling with Paddy Neale  over union affairs.  "We are your servants," he  told the audience, "and you deserve a better deal." The NDP  was opposing just about everything the Socred government  was proposing. As regards Liberals, he said they were  preaching better relationship  with Ottawa if they were elected. He described this as empty  words.  Commenting on claims there  were too many pulp mills under  construction and operating he  proposed that the Chinese  should be taught how to use  Kleenex. That would provide a  good market, he added.  The government, he said was  reducing taxes and increasing  benefits. He pointed to the increasing population, 16 percent,  in British Columbia and outlined the increases that were being supplied to education facili  ties and to hospitals. What the  government was asking for was  a strong mandate and no fiddling around with this socialistic  business.  Mrs. Dawson, he said earlier  in his talk was a woman of  great ability and tremendous  tenacity. He did not know anyone who was more sincere. He  appealed on behalf of the government that she be elected.  Answering questions, Hon.  Mr. Gaglardi said he did not expect the officers of the ferry  fleet would go on strike. He was  still working on the road  through to Squamish but he  could not make any promises  until he had the plans in his  hands. On general road complaints he urged his listeners  to keep on writing and he would  fix their roads. He said there  were plenty of areas without  good roads but he tried to share  the dollars equitably on such  construction.  Rev. Barry Jenks of Sechelt  questioned Mr. Gaglardi on his  attitude towards opposition  members. Mr. Jenks was of the  opinion opposition members  were essential to the mainterv  ance of democracy. Mr. Gaglardi parried by suggesting he  was attacking their manner of  opposing. Coast News, Sept. 1, 1966.  Coast Mtms  The good old dollar  (By C. J.

In 1939, in fact,  the average factory worker put  in 47 hours for a wage of $20 a  week.  Today  in  the   manufac  turing industry the average is  41 hours for a wage of $90 a  week. The $5,000-a-year man is  now almost the rule, rather  than the exception.  Looking at these figures, it is  obvious that we are much better off today. But a study made  by the National Industrial Conference Board indicates that,  because  of taxation and infla-  Hit from both sides  Unity in the Community gets things done  ^aiuttiuuiuuuuiuiuntM^  Serfs for the pampered?  'Mackenzie constituency is one of the richest ridings in this  fabulous province of British Columbia.  This statement was uttered by a member of the Social Credit  government cabinet in Gibsons Legion hall, the night Mrs. Isabel  Dawson was nominated to run as the Socred candidate for Mackenzie constituency.  Hon. Ray Williston, minister of lands, forests and water resources made the statement and in amplification during his speech  to an audience of at least 50 people, stressed the importance of the  wealth of the area to the surrounding communities on the Strait of  Georgia by the supplying of lags for the mills on this waterfront.  Another matter which at the same time should be drawn to the  attention of the general public, particularly in this part of Mackenzie constituency, is the 1965 annual report of the Water Resources Service, which falls within Mr. Williston's portfolio.  This annual report contains a greal deal of information about  the services supplied various sections of the province and in view  of the treatment an area delegation received when it strived to  find out what it could do about water resources, one wonders if  the annual report is just a fairy tale.  For instance one can read that the Kelowna office supervised  the installation of the Canyon Waterworks District's new domestic  water supply system. Also a prelimiary report on a proposed domestic water supply system for an area along Lakeshore road,  south of Okanagan Mission, was prepared.  The annual report contained plenty of other interesting inforT  mation. For instance a report was prepared on domestic water supply possibilities for the proposed Goat Mountain Waterworks District and Alice Siding near Creston. A study was carried out and a  report prepared on the water supply of Arrow Creek near Creston.  If anyone cares to read through the report they will find numerous other examples of work being done elsewhere that fits the  situation in this part of Mackenzie constituency.  The question over which one must ponder is how high up on  the Socred totem pole must a wealthy constituency be, before its  lower strata officials will deign to look in its direction. With taxation from all this Mackenzie constituency wealth piling up in government coffers it would appear that the people of this area are  just plain serfs for the pampered sections of this province, where  cabinet ministers spread government largesses with the greatest  of ease.  Do not think for one minute that the writer is taking a dim  view of the Socred candidate running in Mackenzie constituency.  Such is not the case. Mrs. Isobel Dawson when she heard of what  had occurred in Victoria to a delegation from this area, hastened  to smooth over the breach and has strived to help out wherever she  could.  If Mackenzie constituency is one of the wealthiest as Mr. Williston has stated, why is it that its populace is not part of its wealth.?  Under a Social Credit bill of rights we are second class citizens  and apparently will remain so until ��� until we see the light??  Politicos ts> subjects  The OBC plans ten one-hour dramas with a fictional member of  parliament as its central character and politics the theme. Some  may recall last year's Slattery series that ran on United States  TV stations which contained insight into the life of a young man in  politics.  Years ago when the Saturday Evening Post was to be found  in most homes, Samuel G. Blyth supplied some rather interesting  stories on politics and also wrote a book on a political campaign,  fiction of course, but based on experience. Why should we not have  political life, trades union affairs and such like developed in a fictional manner so that more people would have a better grasp of  life in these areas? Why have they been on a veilboten list?  .jNot too long ago the CBC had a five minute early morning talk  ���on Union affairs across the country. It allowed one to get a better  perspective on what was going on in the world of unionism.  The news we usually get about politicians is concerned with  politics and not the day to day life he has to lead.

Don Poole won the David  Spencer cup for fancy diving  at the Granthams Landing regatta.  Letting inflation inflate  From the Christian Science  Monitor  Most signs continue to point  toward the unlikelihood of any  strong, early administration  steps against inflation. This interpretation of the White House  attitude is underlined by the  vagueness and weakness pf the  latest report from the President's advisory committee on  labor-management   policy.  This report did little more  than urge (1) voluntary restraint by the public, (2) continued attention to revised and  revisable wage-price guideposts,  and (3) a quarterly review of  the economy by the committee.  None of this shows any great  measure of economics or political muscle. In fact, it leaves the  whole question of fighting inflation almost exactly where  the committee found it.  Despite the warnings of many  economists and the concern of  millions of private citizens (ask  any housewife who has just returned from the supermarket),  it seems increasingly clear that  President Johnson has no wish  to initiate early anti-inflationary  action. Not only is he concerned  lest such action deflate the  economy, but he obviously hesitates to take drastic steps  (such as a tax increase) before the November election.  It is also possible that the  White House is comforting itself with the belief that certain  built-in  deflationary  forces are  at work. Among these is the  steady rise in the interest rate,  which makes itself felt in lessened borrowing and decreased  economic expansion. For example, new housing starts, considered one pf the prime indications of how an economy is  faring are down some 11 percent so far in 1966 as compared  with last year. Such a drop is  a brake against a higher inflation rate.  Reports from Washington say  that the Federal Reserve Bank  intends to let bank credit ��� already tighter than at any time  since   the   1920's  ���  grow  still  tighter.  This  will be  felt  at a  thousand   different   points,   but  perhaps most importantly in a  decrease in industrial expansion.  Yet none of this ��� either the  built-in   factors,  the   action   of  the  Federal  Reserve  Bank  or  the appeal for restraint and observance  of  guideposts  ���  has  stopped this year's increase in  inflationary pressures. We think  that the White House is playing  with dangerous fire in refusing  to take early and positive steps  to combat these pressures. Since  early spring we have been calling for bold and concrete measures. Each passing month has  made their need more obvious.  We hope that the President can  be persuaded that it    is     the  American   pocketbook,   not  the  November election, which is important.  SCHOOL DISTRICT No. 46 (SECHELT)  COURT OF REVISION  A Court of Revision for the list of electors of the rural  area of this School District will be held at the School Board  Office, Gibsons, B.C., commencing at 10 a.m. on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th, 1966. The Court will continue to  sit as long as may be necessary to consider and rule on  all appeals.  Any person who wishes to make such an appeal in  respect of the list of electors must file the appeal in writing  with the Secretary-Treasurer before September 20th.  The Court of Revision shall hear all complaints and  correct and revise the list of electors, and may  a. correct the names of electors in any way wrongly  stated therein; or  b. add the names of electors omitted from the list; or  ���c. strike out the names of persons from the list who  are not entitled to vote or who are disqualified from  voting; or  d. correct any other manifest error therein.  tion, the figures are quite misleading. The Board is a private  economic research group headquartered in New York and the  study dealt with, U S. statistics,  but no doubt it would apply to  Canada in principle.  The income tax takes so much  more than in 1939 and inflation  has so reduced the purchasing  power of the dollar that a U.S.  worker has to earn $13,234 a  year to be as well off as the  $5,000 earner of 1939. The escalation is even more pronounced  in the higher income brackets.  In 1939 the $25,000-a-yoar man  who was married and had two  children paid $1,727 income tax.  To have as much money to  spend today he has to have an  income of $76,416, because out  of that sum the income tax  takes $22,562 and the effects of  inflation will subtract- another  $30,581. .  ���    ,  As noted, these are American  figures, but there is evidence  that inflation and taxation have  undermined workers' income to  about the same extent in Canada. As a measure 0f how much  less the dollar buys because ol  inflation there is the point that  the consumer price index has  risen from 63.5 in 1939 to 143.8  in June of this year, which  means that the cost of living  has gone up by about 125 per  cent in the period. On the taxation side, the combined take of  the three levels, of government  as a proportion of the country's  total output of wealth has risen  from less than 20 percent in  1939 to more than 32 percent  today.  To consider income tax only,  in 1939 the average amount remitted to Ottawa by those Canadians in the $4,000 to $5,000  taxable income bracket ��� who  were relatively well off since  their incomes were four to five  times that of the average factory worker ��� was only $71.  Today the person with a taxable income of $650 pays a tax  of $71. Those with a taxable income four to five times the average factory wage ��� that is,  something like $20,000 a year ���  pay an income tax to Ottawa of  $6,400.  Perhaps it is pointless to  mourn the passing of the good  old days, but the workingman  might reasonably yearn for the  good old dollar.  N.

Money belts wene as  common as Gladstone bags in the old days.  Nowadays it's different. Todays' traveller doesn't need  to worry about losing his bankroll. Mostly because he  doesn't carry a bankroll at all. Instead, he uses Bank of  Montreal travellers cheques. They're the perfectly safe  and convenient means of carrying funds while traveling.  A visit to the Gibsons branch of the Bank of Montreal  before starting off on your next business or vacation trip  can give you complete peace of mind. There the accountant, Jim Smith can sell you the B of M travellers cheques  you need, in whatever denominations you think will be  most practical for your purposes.  Then you'll be able to travel with the knowledge that  if your travellers cheques are lost, stolen, or destroyed,  you won't be the loser because the Bank of Montreal will  arrange to replace them for you.  If you're going abroad, the B of M can provide you  special travellers cheques, or travellers letters of credit  for large sums. Travellers cheques are much more comfortable than a money belt, we promise.  Advt.  TURKEY SALES INCREASE  Canadan turkey output and  sales continued to increase during the first six months of 1966.  Up to the end of June, consumption of turkeys that had  been slaughtered in registered  plants totaled 55 million pounds  ��� 24 percent higher than for  the same period in 1965.  Part of the increase in the  per capita sales of turkey was  due to the comparatively high  retail price of beef and pork  reached in late 1965 and maintained in 1966. Last June, retail price indexes of beef and  pork were 152.2 and 144.6 (1949-  100) and the index of poultry  was only 82.4.  She works with wood  After viewing the many entries in the recent Fall Fair of  Mrs. George Boser, and interviewing her surrounded by jars  and fruits ready for canning,  one could get the impession that  she is a woman who is always  busy.  Just three years ago she accumulated the necessary equipment to pursue a hobby of creating lamps, tables and knick-  knacks from the many pieces of  wood at her disposal;  Her husband's business of  shake operations gave her an  opportunity to choose woods  that were suitable for her work.  A wall plaque she has finished,  cut from a cedar, is a perfect  heart shape.

By  finishing first in the province,  he wins the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. Gold  Medal, the Manly M. Cohen  Memorial Award of $100, and  the Founders Prize of $50.

Of her 20 entries in the Fair  baking section, Mrs. Boser won  first prizes for her peanut butter and coconut-oatmeal cookies, and second prizes for chocolate fudge, bran muffins, and  second prize in an apple pie  contest, sponsored by Five Roses Flour.  Mr. and Mrs. Boser and their  six children have lived in Gibsons for two years, and one  year in Sechelt. They moved to  the area from Haney, B.C.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2622 .

DECKER  BAL BLOCK ��� GIBSONS  WEDNESDAY & SATURDAY  FOR APPOINTMENTS���886-2166  Gargrave  campaigns  The New Democratic Party  opened the 1966 provincial election campaign at Roberts Creek  Legion hall Thursday of last  week. Tony Gargrave, the NDP  candidate took the opportunity  to disclose his party's election  platform.  The program covered five  points: stop rising prices, protect family health, end industrial strife, create better educational opportunities and end industrial pollution of air and water, he said.  The provincial, government  can help reduce the cost of living by the establishment of a  consumer council separate from  the government but financed  from the provincial treasury.  This council could test products  and advise house wives of advantageous buys on the market  and it could warn buyers of  shoddy products, he said.  "We should also bring under  provincial ownership, auto insurance and telephone service  to reduce rates as has been done  with the B.C: Hydro and Power  Authority. We also need more  consumer protection in the area  of conditional sales, interest  rate disclosure, false advertising and door-to-door salesmen,"  he continued.  The NDP candidate also stated that his party would bring in  full chronic care at $1 a day  for those chronically ill. "People are living longer," he said,  "and we must and can afford  to look after our older citizens  when afflicted with chronic illness.  "Ask a hospital administrator and he will tell you that a  chronically ill person cannot  stay in a hospital at $1 a day  under BCHIS and neither can  that person get coverage under  BCHIS in a nursing home," Mr.  Gargrave said.  He also commented on labor-  management relations, opportunity for higher education in  rural areas and the dangers of  pollution in communities and  parks.  Mrs. Billingsley  Mrs. Georgie Billingsley who  died in St. Mary's Hospital on  August 28 was born in Verona,  Ontario. After living for several  years in Kelowna and Vancouver, she finally settled with  her family in Sechelt over 40  years ago.  Since that time she has been  a devoted worker for all community activities and for her  church. She served a term as  president of the W.A. to St.  Hilda's Church and was president for 12 years of the Guild  which preceded the W.A.  She was a keen worker for  the Red Cross and she gave  valuable support to all these  activities with her beautiful  handicrafts. A keen gardener she  was never happier than when  working  in  her  flower garden.  Sickness and physical handicaps assailed her but did not  conquer her, and she was active  until a few days before her  death ��� a great loss to the  community.  Kiwanis boat winner  First intimation for Mrs. Robert Page that she was the lucky  winner of the 14 ft. Sangster-  craft boat in the Kiwanis raffle was when she saw the announcement in the Coast News  last week. Mrs. Page was vacationing at her Redrooffs cottage  with daughter Marta and the  notification had been sent to  her home at Port Moody. When  his wife bought the raffle ticket, Robert Page agreed to go  halves with her, but he never  got around to paying up the 50  cents which would have msde  him an equal partner in the fine  new boat. The Pages have taken their prize home to Port  Moody but plan to bring it to  Redrooffs next summer.  The 25 names drawn in an  elimination contest to see who  would be the winner were: D.  L. Vaughan, Mrs. M. Flack, Jim  Waterhouse, B. Reeves, Walter  Middlemass, J. Reiter, Mrs. W.  D. Warren, M. Shoebottom, T.  R. Nicholson, F.

Port Mellon  A rarity  This is described by A. J.  Charman of Gibsons area as a  sunflower, garden type or to use  its Greek name it is an Helian-  thus. Mr. Charman when describing it said it was a month  or more ahead of its natural  flowering season. It was produced by early sowing under  glass followed by protection  until danger from frost was past.  Few people know of the flower but they admire it at first  sight, he said. He suggests it  could be an appropriate floral  emblem for the Sunshine Coast.  (By M. BULGER)  On August 16 Mrs. R. Ferris  and Mrs. H.

You don't  have to be to wear the new  Athletic Stripes ... in contrasting colors accenting hipline, V  neck and sleeves of the greatest Fall knits. Best colors in  these sporty stripes are navy,  grape or olive ... all with putty  stripes.  What's in a Bond? (I don't  mean James) A bonded fabric  has been head locked to a  smoth, silky backing such as  tricot or taffeta, for form an  "instant" lining. The happy results are built-inshape retention  and wrinkle resistance. The fabric will not fray or stretch and  requires little pressing. Bonded  lace is a fashionable favorite  . . . from cute to elegant in  cotton, Orion* or Terylene*.  Bonding eliminates all the old  bugaboos about sewing lace.  By 1970 "Terylene" will have  a new name: Fortrel*. Same  fabric, different name. The  change will be gradual, beginning this Fall. Remember, when  you see the name Fortrel*, it's  your old friend Terylene* with  exactly the same wonderful  wash and wear qualities.  Bands of darker plastic afford  a certain degree of modesty.  Care to try sewing one for your  self, as a joke of course? Use a  long stitch and avoid ripping,  as marks remain. Choose a  simple pattern with the eased  seams and use a fine sharp  needle.  Young Parisians have a way  of knowing what's right and  coming . . . sometimes even before the designers themselves  fore the designers themselves,  so it's important to know what  they are wearing and thinking  now. "L'Uniforme Parisienne"  (that's what Lafayette calls it)  is a slightly fitted shift with  high, shallow scooped neckline  and narrow sleeveless shoulders.  Sounds like the relief we are  looking for after all the ruffles,  sleeves, colors and prints we've  been wearing lately . . . elegant  simplicity that emphasizes the  wearer instead of the ensemble.  Soft in the Head aptly describes the newest, smartest  hats. Berets, pouffed domes  softly gathered into a narrow  headband, scarf hats and mobster caps carry out the theme.  The clever gal who sews, can  run up a hat to match every  outfit from the leftovers (many  chic hat patterns available). A  couturier touch that spells elegance!

Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-2111  Ted Farewell  Mr. and Mrs. Aeron Lewis,  ,of Cardiff, Wales, have spent  the summer visiting their daughter, Miss Ness Lewis, a home  economics teacher in Elphinstone High school.  Miss Lewis and her parents  toured the States to California,  went on to Mexico, and on their  return made a trip to Vancouver Island.  Cardiff was one of the cities  which was bombed during the  last war, but fortunately the  winter was so cold that many  of the bombs did not go off,  and many dropped harmlessly  in the nearby river.  Mr. Lewis served for four  years with the R.A.F. in India,  Ceylon, Malaya and Hong Kong.  He was based in Ceylon when  the atom bombs were dropped  THEY LIKE THE PLACE  After traveling for a three  week period to Victoria, Courtney, Campbell River, Qualicum  Beach, Kelsey Bay looking for  a new home Mr. and Mrs. W.

GET YOUR  Vote for Isabel Dawson  on Hiroshima and Nagasaki,  and shortly after VJ day August 15, 1945, he returned home  to* Wales.  Mr. Lewis has an administrative position with the University College in Cardiff, which  has an enrollment of 3,000 students. He mentioned that education systems are quite different in Wales, as compared  to Canadian schools. For one  thing, students are required to  finish 6th Form, which teaches  university subjects, before they  can be accepted for higher education. This system, he believes,  reduces the number of dropouts from university, because  of a lack of understanding on  how to study and adjust to the  university level.  Mr. Lewis mentioned that the  Welsh language is almost as  ���old as Latin and Greek, and is  the only ancient language which  is still extensively used. He estimated that 700,000 Welsh people speak Welsh of a population of 3 million in Wales.

Mr. A. E. Ritchey bid  $24,000 and Sicotte Bulldozing  Ltd. bid $4,485. Mr. Porter advised that Sicotte's is acceptable and the Planning Committee   recommended   accordingly.  In a letter to the school trustees Mr. Ritchey wrote: I have  looked at the site and taken  some levels with Mr. Porter's  assistance and find a difference  in height between high and low  points of about 20 feet. A rough  calculation of yardage to be  moved comes to 34,000 cubic  yards, much of which is hard-  pan.  That means there would be  around 11 or 12 feet of cut at  the top end and about 8 feet  high fill at the lowest point and  most of the material must be  moved an average of 450 feet  up to 600 feet. Allowance must  be made of over 25 percent cut  to  fill for  compaction.  This makes it difficult to put  in a proper tender on anything  Fiesta week  Taking a leaf out of West  Vancouver's book where the  sketch club stages an annual  Fiesta week during which the  stores each exhibit a painting  by a local artist, Mrs. Kay Wells  with support of the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council is staging  such an exhibition in Gibsons  to run from September 1.
