Here is a copy of the letter:  This letter will serve to confirm that the board passed the  following resolution at its last  meeting: That the Centennial  Swimming Pool be placed on  the Gibsons Elementary or Elphinstone Secondary school  grounds at the discretion of the  planning committee.  A site on the elementary-  school grounds, within the present boundaries of the Village of  Gibsons, is envisaged.  It will be necessary to have  a legal agreement drawn up between the board and whatever.,  group undertakes responsibility  for the operation of the pool  outside school hours. Such an  agreement will spell out the  relative responsibilities of the  board and the other group regarding operating costs such as  maintenance and heating, use  of showers, dressing rooms, etc.  It is planned that the pool would  be heated from' the school heating plant and that the board  would, assume the _ operating  costs of the pooL during, school  hours. The cheating cost, outside,  �� At .a public, meeting last  Thursday, 'of the Centennial  Committee; Chairman ��� Sana  Fladager explained in answer  to a question that family memberships at small cost, would be  sold in order to meet costs of  maintenance of the pool during  public' use. During the school  term, maintenance costs would  be borne by the school district.  Mr. Fladager announced that  bids would be requested from  15 swimming pool contractors,  and construction would begin as  soon as a contractor; has been  selected.  Fatality  Catherine Lindsay Henderson  of Wilson Creek, member of the  Old Age Pensioners Organization was fatally injured about 9  p.m. Friday on her return home  after a ��� three-day bus tour of  Olympic Peninsula. She died at  about 1:30 a.m. Saturday in St.  Mary's Hospital, Sechelt. The  bus was one hour late due to  one passenger becoming lost at  Bellingham.  When the bus arrived in the  region of Big Maple Motel, near  Mrs. Henderson's home,1 Dick  Gray, bus driver, urged her to  remain on the bus until it reached Sechelt where he would be  able to take her to her home in  is own car. Mrs.,Henderson preferred to get off the bus.;  As she tried to cross the highway after one stream of traffic  had passed,, she apparently  walked into the path of the other  stream and. she was struck by  a car driven by Russell E.  Clarke of Selma'Park.  An inquest will be held Wednesday evening at Hospital cottage with Dr. R. A. Swan as  coroner. \  TROPHY SHOOT  Gibsons Rod and Gun club  Burns Memorial shoot will take  place at 1 p.m'. Sunday, Sept. 25  at the club's range on the Sun-:  shine Coast Highway, just past  jSeaview Cemetery. There^ will;  also be five trophy shoots. Rules  are posted in the windows of  -Walt- Nygren Sales Limited.   school hours might have to be  borne by the outside group. It  might be possible to arrange for.  the use of the school showers  and, perhaps, changing, facilities until permanent pool facilities can toe built. When these latter are constructed, possibly  ���some system can be worked out  whereby the school district pays:  a nominal rental fee per student  per year for the use of the facilities. .  So far as the use of the effluent line is concerned, it will be  necessary for us to notify the  Pollution Control Board to see  whether or not this can be done  without further violating the  provisions of permit No. 1.  Ordinarily, the business-like  thing to do would be to iron out  all these details first. However,  in view of the extreme shortness  of time remaining before some  definite construction has to be  commenced, I would recommend'that we proceed immediately with selecting the exact  site. I am sure the details can  be worked out to our mutual sa-.  tisfaction at some later date.  With the goodwill of all concerned, I am certain that this can  be done and it would seem foolish to jeopardize the swimming  pool for the sake of a few comparatively trivial details.  Yours truly, Peter C. Wilson,  secretary treasurer."  Mrs.  ISABEL  DAWSON  Criticized  s desired  A letter from the school board  was read confirming use of the  elementary school grounds as  a site for the pool. This letter  also contained a suggestion that  a legal agreement be prepared  with respect to maintenance  costs and use of school facilities.  A committee to supervise the  financing and construction of  the pool was formed, with Mrs.  B. Littlejohn, Mrs. Frances  Scorgie, Mrs. J. Macey, G. Taylor, Port Mellon, Wes Hodgson  and E. Yablonski in charge of  finance; J. Warn, P. Lawrence  and J. Horvath, construction;  and Mrs. M. Bulger, public relations.  Mr. Lawrence accepted responsibility to have a sign "Site  of Gibsons and Port Mellon Centennial Pool" erected at the  pool location.

Council   learned   at   Tuesday  night's meeting that verbal instruction had been left by the  inspector   that   the   order   will  come   through   the   Vancouver  fire   marshal's   office.   Council  was  informed by  Gibsons  fire  marshal Robert Wilson that Cy  Johnson,   owner   of   the   plaza,  had been given time to rectify  y incorrect methods  in the elec-  /ti'ical -system ^but nothings had  ��� been done.  A fire alarm was sounded two  Sundays ago when some wiring  in the lower part of the plaza  had become heated. This led to  examination by the provincial  electrical inspector's department  Mr. Johnson was given time to  make good but according to Mr.  Wilson's remarks to council,  nothing had been changed.  Council inquired from Mr. Wilson why he had not turned in a  report requested by council on  the fire hazard situation at Seaside Plaza. Mr. Wilson replied  that he would have to be a good  novelist to write a report on the  situation there. His comment on  the wiring was that Johnson was  abusing the system with too ���  many attachments.  Council voted in favor of a  motion by Councillor Fred Feeney that Mr. Johnson finish immediately the sun porch at  street level and steps to the  ground at the lower level. Councillors agreed that if the Sunday  fire had got out of hand people  in the lower section would have  been trapped. It was also pointed out that a bad fire so close  to the Shell Oil tanks could lead  to a serious situation. Safety of  lives over-rides all other considerations, Councillor Sam Fladager added. Council decided to  await further action from the  provincial electrical inspection  department before making further decisions.  Guide dates  There are changes in meeting  times for Rangers, Guides and  Brownies in Gibsons.  Rangers are invited to the  home of Mrs. Meg Meredith,  1029 Franklin at 7 p.m. Monday,  Sept. 19, for a preliminary meeting to discuss organization.  Gibsons Guide company will  meet on Monday, Sept. 19 from  6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Elementary  School gym.  As there are not enough leaders, Brownie packs cannot be  organized immediately. However  Mrs. A. Labonte would like to  meet with mothers of Brownies  and mothers of girls who were  planning to join Brownies this  fall, in the Elementary School  Gym at 3:30 p.m., Monday, Sept.  19  Mackenzie constituency has swung from the ranks of opposition in the legislature into the Social Credit fold with the election of Mrs. Isobel Dawson of Powell River. She defeated Tony  Gargrave who has held the seat for 14 years as a CCF then an  NDP member.  Latest figures available on the vote gives Mrs. Dawson a  majority of 1298 over Mr. Gargrave who won the seat in the  previous election with a majority of 403. Latest totals for the constituency give Mrs. Dawson 4,674, Tony Gargrave 3,376 and Joe  Benner 820. There are eight far north polls to hear from and they  cannot possibly make much change.

W. M. Cameron complimented Mr. and Mrs.  Harry Winn on their 50th wedding anniversary, the Winns  have been showered with felicitations from far and near. Functions for them have already taken place and others are planned.  Lou and Harry Winn were the  first couple to be married in  the old Gibson Memorial United  church on Sept. 12, 1916 by Rev.  R. C. Scott and Rev. P. C. Parker. The Winns have lived in  Gibsons 54 years, coming to  Gibsons in 1912, the same year  that Harry's father purchased  property from Harry Chaster's  father which included a general  store. This operated under the  name Winn and Son until 1919  when the store was sold and  Harry, went into the trucking  and taxi business. This he maintained for 24 years, then he sold  out so he could handle the growing telephone operation.  Harry reports that Winn and  Son had the first automobile in  the area with the second coming  two years later. The road ran  from Hopkins Landing to Sechelt  The road to Pender Harbor was  completed during the depression  years in the 1930s.  In 1923 a B.C. Telephone company boat arrived one morning  with three technicians to instal  a telephone system. It was then  only a telegraph line, operated  by George Wood, now living in  Westview. They started at 10  a.m. and worked through to 2  a.m. The Winns however decided to go to bed and on rising  next morning Lou was invited  to talk to Vancouver. She was  told to turn the crank on the  phone in the hope she would get  an answer.  Phoning hours were from 7 to  9 a.m. and 6 to 11 p.m. because  the telegraph system used the  remainder of the available time.  In those days the telephone sys-  . tern, did not provide tickets for  registering calls, so the Winns  provided such identification by  using a scribbler. Seven calls  per day was a busy period.  When long distance calls were  installed there were 15 telephones between Seaside Park at  Port Mellon and Pender Harbour, taking in Lasqueti Island,  Buccaneer Bay, Hardy and Nelson Islands.lt was years before  Gibsons had a subscriber and he  was the late Dr. F. Inglis. Within a year Jack Inglis had a  phone and Fred Olsen had the  third but within a year it was  back to two.  When the B.C. Telephone company  took  over in  1954  there  were 350 telephones on the system which was becoming quite  (Continued on Page 5) .

Election of Mrs. Isabel Dawson as Social Credit member of  the new legislature did not come as a surprise. She certainly worked for her victory. If other prospective candidates for election  were to be as diligent in heeding public needs as she has been since  the last election, they would be well advised.  She will be one of four women in the house which along with  other new members should make the coming sessions livelier than  we have had in the past.  Tony Gargrave who has served Mackenzie constituency for 14  years did not hold his previous command of the vote. This can be  ascribed to the lack of organization, directly opposite to the keen  organization set up by Mrs. Dawson.  The Liberal candidate, Joe Benner of Sechelt, working pretty  much on his own and lacking organization can be classified as an  also ran.  ~Even a superficial look at the Mackenzie vote result leads to  the conclusion that the defeat of Tony Gargrave speaks for itself.  He did not run a spirited campaign. Mrs. Dawson was riding high  on a wave produced by tireless energy. She obtained 4,194 votes to  Gargrave's more than 3,044 while Benner fell well short of the 1,000  with 754.  The result of the Liberal vote in this election ran mighty close  to what happened to the Conservative party in Mackenzie. In the  previous election the Liberal candidate polled 2,019 votes and to  drop to practically one-third of that total should make good Liberals ask questions. In the two previous elections the Conservatives  managed to get 189 and 487 votes. Tony Gargrave dropped 1,035  votes but has not left the party in too bad a shape at the polls.  Mrs. Dawson's big majority should lead Mackenzie voters to expect some long-delayed government interest to bloom.  Inflationary affluence  The ramifications of a money economy are mysterious and  what is now going on ��� inflation ��� is interesting in that it is  the inflation of an affluent society loaded to the gills with whatever it wants in the'line of commodities.  With any inflation comes a multitude of problems, some concerned with putting the brakes on the rising spiral and still others  with the levelling off when the spiral is stopped.  There is a great difference between the inflation of the postwar period and that of today. Then inflation was mainly caused  by the lack of goods due to the conversion of the economy from  war to peace. These shortages were not national. They were worldwide and it took many years to bring economies of world nations  oa an even keel.  Most people would regard the present Canadian economy  as being healthy. Perhaps it as too healthy with the demands  being put on it creating a great strain. There does not appear  to be shortages arising from production. There does appear to  be a shortage, according to some people, in the supply of money.  More people are wanting more and according to Mitchell Sharp  the finance minister, the production level is not keeping pace  with an expansion of the money supply.  A forecast of increased taxation does not appear to be a pipe  dream. There are those who remember the wartime withholding  tax which was used to drain off part of one's income. It was paid  Iback later when the government felt the economy could stand  an increase in the money supply. How this would fit in today's  thinking when more and more money is the desire, is a question  that could be debated. Taxation appears easier. Perhaps tightening the belt of an economy regarded as healthy might have the  desired effect.  THE  COAST NEWS  19 h:ii:n ii.ii  Roberts Creek Badminton  club met at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. E. J.

Poole Bros, tugboat Bighorn  was launched at Hopkins Landing . .  The authentic replica of the  Hudson's Bay Company ship  was built this spring at HMC  Dockyard, Esquimalt. She is  105 feet long at the waterline,  with a beam of 34 feet, measured from the outer edges of the  paddle boxes. The new Beaver  is driven by a twin-screw diesel  engine, manned by a crew of  ten men, arid captained by Lt.  Ian Sturgess, RCN, of Victoria.  The new ship was launched in  June and, after trial runs in the  early part of July, she set forth  on July 23.  The reconstruction of the old  ship was carried out under the  auspices of the Canadian Confederation Centennial Committee of B.C. Next year, to commemorate Canada's 100th birthday, she will make a far more  extensive tour of the coast.  The replica of the Beaver carries on board a number of articles used on the original ship,  and on similar vessels of her  time, as well as an interesting  map of the B.C. Coast showing some of the historic events  in which she took part.  The original SS Beaver was  the first steam vessel to make  its appearance in the Pacific  Northwest. She was 101 feet  long, with a beam of 20 feet.  She drew 12 feet of water and  had a displacement of 310 tons.  She was built for the Hudson's  Bay Company at Blackwell-on-  Thames, England, and launched  on May 2, 1835. She came round  the Horn under sail to Fort  Vancouver, at the mouth of the  Columbia River, arriving on April 10, 1836.  There, the Beaver was fitted  out with two engines under  whose power she could steam at  10 knots. She was used in the  fur trade by the Hudson's Bay  Company from the time of her  arrival until 1858. In 1862, she  was chartered by the British Admiralty as a survey ship and  was used in that capacity until  1870.  In  July,  1836,  Beaver made  LETTERS  Editor: There are 100 skilled  men living in this area who  work at the building trades.

So we are a body  of small businessmen putting  into circulation each year about  two million dollars. Yet in almost every issue of your paper  we are being figuratively slapped in the face by news items  or advertisements, in one way  or another.  We are just now recovering  from the shock of the new Sechelt Village Hall. The facts  are being circulated so fast and  furiously by word of mouth that  there is no need to give the sordid details here of how seemingly sober local citize. s would  give an outsider the sum of $19,'.  000 plus interest to build a $9000  building because the fellow said  if he had to quote in competition he wasn't interested.

The last Lindall home I installed a fireplace in was masterminded by an outfit from  Washington, half the house was  on fill, half v/as on solid top-  soil, and one corner was set on  a hemlock stump. A run down  of material costs indicated that  a pre-fabricated shell of this  type costs more than double  what it should.  The prognosticators are calling for a recession in the offing. It may be that we will have  to organize to survive. These  municipalities may have to be  forced to do their spending like  intelligent people.  ���A. R. Simpkins.  Editor: After reading through  the recent editorial and letters  dealing with the Guns ��� No  Money Down business here is  another person who heartily  agrees that something ought to  be done to tighten up the laws  regarding the. distribution of lethal weapons.  Information received from the  Department of Recreation and  Conservation states that this  matter is closely controlled by  federal statute.  In view of the apparent ease  with which such weapons may  be purchased the word closely  would seem to be something of  a misnomer.

There are thousands of people who say, No, I don't feel  tired at all, and yet they are  worn out in body and mind.

So we must be sure to recognize the fact that we are growing tired.  Perhaps we are one of those  persons who find themselves  too busy to relax, even for a  minute, but is this really true?  We may take a pill or a powder,  but we find that we need more  than this, for we need to let  ourselves go, and this can only  be done by withdrawing ourselves from the cause, even for  a few minutes. Some people  would call this prayer, other  would call it by another name.  We must get into our thinking that tiredness is not only  of the body and mind, but of  the spirit.

His father, James Hales Drummond in 1926 established the  Howe Sound Trading Co. in Gibsons, and operated it until a  few years ago. The store which  was located where the Bank of  Montreal is now situated served Sechelt and Roberts Creek  with traveling vans.  After two years at UBC Mr.  Drummond joined his father in  business and became local  agent for the Sun Life Insurance company, and various  general insurance companies.  A sport enthusiast, he played  on Gibsons High School basketball teams and on the Peninsula Hotel Softball team. Seeing  a need and interest for youth  activities, in 1955 he organized  Little League baseball in Gibsons.  For four years Mr. Drummond has served as village  councillor, is president of the  Kiwanis Club and chairman of  the Airport committee.  He is married to the former  Anna Windstrom, of Vancouver.

Actually, most species are harmless and unable to pierce the  human skin, but a few can bite  and cause acute illness.  In general, spiders are beneficial as they greatly reduce the  numbers of harmful and obnoxious insects. In the vicinity  of bodies of water where hordes  of aquatic insects, such as shad-  flies and mayflies, provided an  abundant source of food, they  may become very numerous  and their webs an unsightly  nuisance in and about buildings.  *       *       *  In Canada there is at least  one, and possibly two, species  that is closely related to the  black widow spider of southern  North America. The species occurs in southern areas of British Columbia and Alberta,  in southwestern Saskatchewan,  and in southwestern Ontario  along the shores of Lake Huron  and Lake Erie. The name black  widow results from the fact  that' the adult is mainly black  in color and that, after mating,  the female may kill the male  and eat him.  *  *  *  The female black widow  spider has a globular, shiny  black abdomen with two reddish or yellowish triangles on  the underside which form a  typical hourglass marking. The  abdomen is about one' quarter  inch in diameter but may be  as much as one half inch when  the female is full of eggs. The  male is much smaller and  lighter colored. Any spider with  an intensely black and glossy  base color should be treated  with respect.  .  *      *      *  The black widow occurs mainly in rural and suburban areas.  It favors darkened areas such  as rodent burrows, cellars,  garages, outdoor privies, wood-  Halfmoon Bay  By MARY   TINKLEY  Two next door neighbors on  the Redrooffs Road are resting  quietly at home following accidents. Tony Tschaikowsky is  home from the Vancouver General Hospital following surgery.  Next door, Doug Foley is temporarily out of action following  an accident with a power saw  which necessitated ten stitches  in his knee.  A recent visitor to the Roy  Greggs was Mrs. Greggs' son,  David Bissett of Winnipeg.  Visiting the Doug Foleys have  been Mrs. Foley's cousins,  Mrs. Myrtle Frisby with her  daughter Jill and Miss Betty  Andrews, all of Sacramento,  Cal.  Mrs. William Swain's guest is  her sister-in-law, Fred McAllister of Rivers Inlet, while the  Nygard's have had Tag's brothers Chris, with his wife Gladys  and   Clarence  with  son Larry.  Just arrived at the Alan  Greene's from England is Miss  Joyce Kenyon of Eastbourne,  whose plan to cross Canada by  train was upset by the rail  strike. However, she flew to  Calgary and crossed the Rockies  by bus which she found a most  interesting experience.  piles and trash heaps. It occurs  in dwellings most frequently in  the fall, apparently seeking  shelter for the winter. The female rarely attacks except  when defending her eggs or  when the web is disturbed. In  areas where this species occurs, one should always brush  away any webs spun across the  holes in privy seats before using them.  Morality from black widow  spider bites is less than five  percent in North America. The  bite may not be immediately  felt but two tiny red spots and  surrounding redness appear.  Later pain develops either in  the area bitten or throughout  the body;  it reaches a peak of  intensity in two to three hours  then subsides and disappears in  12 to 48 hours. Anyone bitten  should be kept warm and very  quiet until a doctor arrives. Apply ice continuously to the  wound. Give no alcohol as it  increases the toxicity of the  poison, but the victim should  drink plenty of water and sweet  weak tea.  Where spiders of any kind become a nuisance, the following  control measures are recommended:  (1) Screen openings in buildings carefully to keep out the  spiders, even the small newly-  hatched ones, and other insects  that may serve as food material.  (2) Using a stiff-bristled, long-  handled broom, brush down the  webs, spiders and egg sacs,  paying particular attention to  obscure corners.  Spiders may be killed by  spraying them directly with one  percent lindane, two percent  chlordane or 0.5 percent dieldrin. Dusts of these materials  may be applied to spider webs  and to crawl spaces beneath  buildings.  Coast News, Sept. 15, 1966.

Lines were  strung on trees mostly. The line  men, the late George Walker of  Wilson Creek and Ed Lee of  Sechelt, now express agent for  SMT in Gibsons, had quite a  job in keeping them intact.  There were few cars moving  about in those days and it was  difficult to get information from  point to point.        ,  There were few phones in the  early stages and during the war  period when none could be obtained, a whistle and megaphone system was arranged for  those receiving most calls, each  having their own special signal.  In one case a party was called  every 20 minutes for two hours  by whistle. Finally he came out  of breath explaining he had  been over to Keats Island. He  took his phone call and found  he had five minutes to catch the  boat to Horseshoe Bay.  When people left the area for  a brief period they would leave  a Vancouver telephone number  available so that callers could  through the Gibsons office  reach them at the Vancouver  number.  Recalling early radio days  Harry remembered, that he obtained the fifth Marconi radio  made for sale in B.C. but he  had to send a certified cheque  for $225 before they would make  it. It was like three glorified cigar boxes with an aerial 150  feet high. He believes Don Hauka still has two sections of it.  This was in th_- earphone days  before speaker cones were manufactured.  Digging back further in telephone days, Harrj explained  that Lou operated the phone  system for 31 years with Harry  himself helping some of the  time.

The party was  composed of 41 members of the  Sechelt and Gibsons branches  of the OAPO. The weather remained perfect the entire trip.  The route was by Bellingham  and the winding picturesque  Chuckanut Drive, turning west  at Burlington, bypassed Anacortes and' crossed Deception  Bridge with its bird's eye view  of the rapids.  Long narrow Whidbey Island  gave attractive views of snug  coves and pleasant bays on  either side. Crossing Admiralty  Inlet by ferry to Port Town-  send, the party continued to  Port Angeles for an overnight  stop.  . The following day's tour circled the Olympic Peninsula offering a wide variety of scenery.  The Olympic Mountains, topped  by 7965 ft. Mt. Olympus, were  an impressive sight. There was  a drive through Olympic National Park to the Rain Forest  and there were lovely stretches  of road around bays, alongside  mountain lakes and along the  Pacific coast.  After a night's rest at Olympia, the party returned home  by way of Tacoma, Seattle and  Bellingham. Tributes were  paid to Roily Reid, vice-president of tho Sechelt branch who  organized and took charge of  the trip and to SMT driver Dick  Gray for his unfailing courtesy  and consideration, cheerfully  given.

Picked up  in passing  The industrialization of Japan  has had some unusual and revolutionary results on agriculture,  a government release reveals.  During 1964 and 1965 when demand was less than Japan's industrial ability to produce, agricultural production and farmers'  incomes increased steadily. At  the same time the farming  population continued to decrease.  Briefly, as industries and their  supplier companies mushroomed in growth throughout Japan,  more and more men and women left the fields and farms  for regular hours and more pay-  With more money, they not only  bought more food, but their appetites changed from rice and  fish to steak arid potatoes.  This, in turn, has brought a  decline in Japan's ability to be  self-sufficient in feeding the  people, and there has been a  sharp increase in importation  of certain agricultural products,  some of the facts and figures  produced by the white paper  show an interesting change in  the food consumption of the  Japanese people.  Money spent for foodstuffs  has increased by an average  of 4.6 percent in real terms during the past five years. Since  the population increase was  only about one percent per year,  it is evident the Japanese have  more expensive appetits.  In rcent years, the decline in  the consumption of rice and  the rise in consumption of wheat  point dramatically to the fact  that both urban and farming  households are making bread  an item on their daily meals.  A large increase has been noted in the consumption of fruits  Primary insurance  rejected by 3 boards  Dick Kennett of Gordon and  Kennett, real estate and insurance in Gibsons and Sechelt, a  company which has carried  some school board insurance  over the years, inquired from  companies he represented what  they thought about primary and  excess insurance. The following  which Mr. Kennett also sent to  the school board, is their reply:  Inspector of Insurance does  not object, because it is entirely legal. He is not passing on  its  advisability.  Department of Education also  did not object, because they  leave such matters largely up to  school boards.  Primary and excess insurance  has been available on the London market for many years and  contrary to statements made for  the press, has never received  widespread acceptance, largely  because of its obvious shortcomings.  Vancouver, Surrey and Coquitlam school districts have all  examined the concept and rejected it because they felt that  taking the risks entailed was  not in keeping with the obligations implicit in trusteeship.  The single reinstatement provision was referred to as getting $2,00,000 insurance for the  price 0f $1,000,000. Actually the  regular insurance they have always had allows for immediate  reinstatement throughout the  life of the policy, not just once.  It would be just as truthful to  say that with primary and excess insurance, your school district would be buying $1,000,000  insurance for 74% of the cost  of $3,000,000. Actually, both  comparisons are meaningless  over-simplifications, but two can  play a game.  On the theory that no single  loss is likely to exceed the  amount in the largest single risk  of a schedule, that is the amount  of insurance carried. The rate  is then loaded to reflect the fact  that more is at risk than the  principal amount.  Automatic reinstatement is usually limited to once, rather  than continuously as is the usual  case, so the insuring company  isn't too badly off on the deal.  The co-insurance clause,  100% to value at the principal  location, is extremely stiff as  compared to all others, and the  insured is responsible for his  own values.  Points for trustees to consider:  They have a duty to protect  the board's property adequately.. For instance, in this case,  the total bill for insurance probably doesn't exceed $60,000 for  three years, so for a little over  $15,000, they are leaving some  holes in the protection of $2,-  000,000 of property.  A loss in excess of the value  of the principal risk is certainly not common, but a bad storm  (don't forget the policies cover  additional perils too), or an active arsonist could do the trick.  All of the 'buildings in the  schedule are of a nature that a  total loss is the greatest likelihood if a fire got started and  simultaneous fires in the two  largest schools could happen  under the right conditions.  These are remote chances. Or  are they? Arson is becoming  more common, especially with  public buildings. While it can't  be proven, we have our suspicions about most recent large  school fires, the insurance companies' report ends.  and    vegetables,  The consumption of milk, milk  products and meat has almost  doubled during the past five  years. Pork, chicken, ham,  sausages, milk, butter, cheese  and eggs are now major items  on menus, with mutton and  beef also high on the housewife's shopping list.  The disturbing feature to the  Japanese Agriculture-Forestry  Ministry is that the change from  chopstick meals to knife and  fork meals has brought a conspicuous increase in importation of farm produce since 1960.  Nancy ends her trip  *    *  *  The toaster could well become  the busiest kitchen appliance  at breakfast time with the advent of a new form of bacon.  A U.S. firm has developed a  pre-cooked bacon which only  needs dropping in the toaster  to heat. The toaster dial is set  to light or dark, depending on  the desired degree of crispness.  When the bacon pops up, it is  ready to eat.  The product is packaged in  an aluminum pouch containing  five separate compartments.  Each, compartment contains  four slices of bacon. The compartments are placed in the  toaster for heating.  Known as Reddi-Bacon, the  new product is sold in packages containing % lb. of precooked bacon. Market testing  has just begun in three U.S.  cities and will be continued in  two more centres in September.  (By NANCY LESLIE)  After a short visit, in the city  of Nagoya, we returned to Tokyo to spend the" next four days  renewing friendships before  leaving for home.  The students from Keio University  gave   a  farewell  party  for  all  exchange  students  and  their host families. Each of us  received  a Keio University  album, with the Keio crest set on  the velvet background. Our host  families   were   presented   with  plaques     engraved     with    the  names of all the exchange students.  Keio students formed a guard  of honor as we boarded the Japan Air Lines jet on the evening  of Sept. 2. We flew to San Francisco via Honolulu, Hawaii, then  home to Vancouver by bus.  In summary I would like to  express some general impressions of my trip to Japan.  I found Japan to be a beautiful and fascinating country and  the Japanese people to be kind,  hospitable, honest and straightforward in thheir answers. In  spite of the rush of Western  ways and ideas that have swej^t  through Japan creating great  changes, there is still a picturesque foundation of the ancient  and traditional that exists with  the modern.  Japan, unlike other Asian nations, draws its strength from  its predominately industrial economy. Japan's heavy industries today produce ships and  freighters, trains and subways,  trucks, buses and automobiles,  as well as steel, concrete and  glass.  If you have ever jousted in a canoe or rowboat you -will understand why the vanquished gets wet. This picture shows a jousting event at Port Mellon's Labor Day sports and was taken jus*  before one of the jousters hit the briny. It is likely that jousting  may become a water sport along with log rolling.  Religion for the older generation is still Shintoism and Buddhism but the younger generation is not sure and have a tendency to favor Christianity but  yet seem indecisive.  Within the home, Western and  Oriental elements are combined with urban life reinforcing  the new and custom preserving  the old.  It would be my wish to return  to this exotic land in the near  future.  Seek fiddler  Who is the foremost old-time  fiddler in the province? The  British Columbia Centennial  Committee is staging the Centennial old-time Fiddlers' Festival to find out.  Local Centennial committees  are searching for amateur talent to compete in contests to  be held prior to Nov. 1. Local  winners will compete in regional finals, and the top fiddlers  will then tune up for the British Columbia provincial finals  at Vernon July 1, 1967.  Any amateur can enter, must  take no more than three minutes to play a waltz, a jig and  a hoedown, in that order.  Entry forms are available  only from local Centennial committees.  49  YEARS   AGO  After hearing of the momentous decision of the British  Labor Congress at Blackpool.

It was under similar  circumstances and during war  years when he attended the congress as one of a number of  delegates from the Canadian  Labor movement.

When those races are" different enough that it shows in  color of skin or shape of face,  the couple and their children  will face disapproval. Your parents have lived longer than you  have and they've seen what this  prejudice does to people. And  they want you to be happy.  But that is not the whole  story. Is your love for each  other the grown-up, self-forgetful kind? A mature devotion can  and does weather the storms of  loneliness and. makes a place  for itself in the hearts of true  friends.  And let me whisper this: After the marriage parents .are often won over when they hear  news of their first bouncing  grand-baby.  But it's your decision.

BULGER)  Recent visitors from Everett,  Wash., made the trip to the  Sunshine Coast to view Mr.  Charles Bedford's shell collection at Roberts Creek. The  group represented' the Beachcombers Club of Everett, and  they invited him to display his  shells at their club show in October. They also presented him  with a year's membership in  the club.    ...  Mr. Bedford has a collection  of shells which is one of the  largest in Canada.  There are 1700 different  varieties of shells to be found  on. the Sunshine Coast beaches,  he said. The scallop is one of  them.  An interesting feature of the  scallop is its popular use in  designs used by various nations  in every age. In Greek mythology it is depicted. The Incas  in Mexico included it in their  sculpture. Artists used it in  paintings of St. Philip, St. Peter  and Mary in the early centuries  of Christianity. The scallop has  been shown gracing a gown as  jewelery, prominently displayed  as a badge, woven into the pattern . of French rugs and tapestry, and used in designs of the  famous delft pottery. A Roman  tomb in the second century,  A.D. and Roman coins show a  scallop in the designs. A modern day use of the scallop is  in the Shell Oil insignia.  The significance of the scallop appears to be its grace of  appearance and symmetrical design.  Barnacles that have been  stripped from the body of a  whale are on display. Barnacles  V  weighing a total of 2,000 pounds  have been cleared from a single  whale, he said,  Boring clams were found during the construction of the  Panama Canal to be able to  chisel through concrete with  their sharp teeth. He has specimens of these clams in his  home.  A shell of great beauty and  intricacy is the chambered  Nautilus. This shell was studied  by Jules Verne in the 1800's,  and through an understanding  of its structure he evolved the  idea for building a submarine.  He named his imaginary submarine  the Nautilus.  The Nautilus has also been  immortalized in the poem The  Chambered Nautilus, by Oliver  Wendell Holmes.  CHARLES  BEDFORD  He has in his collection a  specimen of coral from Samoa  in the shape of a lamb.  There are 175 different species  of star fish. They have the  ability to regrow tentacles  which have been broken off or  destroyed by predators.  He has discovered that gooey  ducks, which are found in this  area, have a-life span of 35  years. They are usually found  on sandy beaches, arid have recently been" discovered in waters as deep as 100 to 300 feet.  It is the largest of the clams  that live in west coastal waters.  In his collection he has a  stalactite from the tomb of  Napoleon, in France. The  French general is buried in a  series of 14 coffins, and regularly the coffins are examined  and cleaned. A friend who visited the tomb sent to him the  stalactite specimens.  Agatized snail and clam  shells, turned to stone some  millions of years ago, are on  view in his display.  Mr. Bedford is a member of  the Vancouver Aquarium and  the American Malacological  Society.  He has received recognition  for his work throughout Canada and the United States. At  the PNE in 1951 and 1961 he  was awarded the silver and  bronze medals. In August, 1965,  Western Homes and Living featured an article on his collection.  Over the years, Mr. Bedford  has welcomed visitors to his  home to view his collection. He  has on many occasions demon-  started his shells and given  talks  in schools,  halls  and  to  Coast News, Sept. 15, 1966.      7  Brownies, Guides    and    Scout  groups.  He stated that many of his  shells are becoming rare. He  cited paua, an abalone shell of  New Zealand as an example.  These shells are no longer permitted to be collected, as they  are becoming scarce, and the  Maoris and veterans in hospitals in New Zealand use them  in making statues and jewelery.  Shells are no longer permitted to be taken from the  beaches of a national park on  the Florida coast.  Mr. Bedford predicted that  in a short while restrictions will  have to be made regarding  collecting shells from local  beaches. Various shells even on  west coast beaches are becoming fewer in number, and unless conservation methods are  used none will be left.  At present Mr. Bedford is  considering moving his collection to a location more readily  accessible, and where added  space would afford a more complete display.

By-.ROBERTA  LEE  Q. What is the correct manner in which to butter your  bread or roll?  A. In the first place, never  hold your bread in midair while  spreading the butter. Instead,  it should be held against the  edge of the butter-plate. Nor  is the bread or roll ever buttered in one piece. Break the  bread or roll into pieces, and  butter each piece as you use  it.  * *       *  Q. Should one write "Mr. and  Mrs. Henry L. Hodges" on the  inner envelope of a wedding invitation, just as it is written  on the outer envelope?  A. Just "Mr. and Mrs. Hodges"  is sufficient.  *      *     *  Q. When a woman's husband  is a "junior," should she also  use this affix in' her correspondence?  A. Yes, certainly. She is "Mrs.  George W. Harrison, Jr."  * #       *  Q. I've been criticized for  wearing perfume in the office  where I am employed. Is this  really improper?  A. It may be that you are  wearing a too-heavy type of  perfume. Otherwise, there is  nothing at all wrong with wearing perfume in an office, but  it should emit a dainty and  delicate fragrance, not a heavy  and cloying one.  * *     *  Q. I am a girl about to bp  married, but have no father,  brother, or other male relative  to give me away. My fiance has  suggested that his father would  like to serve in this capacity.  Would this be proper?  A. This would be quite all  right.  * *     *  Q. Is it proper to send out  invitations written in pencil or  typed out over the hostess' signature?  A. Neither is correct. When  invitations are mailed, they  should be handwritten in ink  or engraved.  *       *       *  Q. What does a person do if  an uninvited guest drops in  while he is listening to a TV  program in which he is particularly   interested?  A. Explain that the program  is something you want especially to see or hear, and ask your  visitor to join you. "Come in  and watch if you care to ��� it  should be over in about 15 minutes." The visitor can then  either do so or proceed on his  way.  * *     *  Q.

What should a young man  do at a social function when he  finds himself next to a girl to  whom he has not been introduced?  A. He can say some such  thing as, "I'm Bruce Jackson,  I do not believe I have met  you."  *     #...���#  Q. For my wedding, my gown  will be ballerina-length. Should  the dresses of my attendants  also be short?  A. Yes.  Check 2,300  More than 2,300 Coast Garibaldi area residents attended  ,the positive reactor survey of  Operation Doorstep.  This program was carried out  to re-check all adults who were  found to have a positive reaction to the TB skin test at last  year's full scale clinic.  TB specialists estimate that  one out of every 20 people who  have been infected will develop  actual tuberculosis disease at  sometime in their life. The  periodic chest X-ray will diagnose any lung damage in the  early stages when it can most  successfully be treated.  Although not yet complete  the initial indications are that  medical findings will be light.  All those tested will receive a  report from the local health  unit.

Never underestimate the possibilities of  knits: nylon, Orion, Arnel, cotton, wool and a host of others.  All can be. easily packed and  come out wearable. Many are  washable; some require little or  no ironing. From swimming to  cocktail hour, knits have the  answer.  Whether you're planning a  trip or just a comfortable stay-  at-home, you'll find this trick  handy (I discovered it while  travelling  for  a living).   After  unpacking, put everything on  hangers. Turn on the shower  (hot) until it's nice and steamy.  Now hang all your clothes on  the shower rod out of the way  of the water.

We should  find a greater variety of synthetic knits available for home  sewing. If you don't find what  you're looking for in your store,  ASK. Our Singer store people,  and many others, will stock the  item you want if they receive  enough requests.  When sewing knits, remember  these tips:  1. Use a new needle and looser  tension (practice on a piece  of  the fabric).  2. Underline slim skirts or wear  a fitted taffeta skirt underneath.  3. Iroh-on interfacing works  best around buttons and buttonholes, collars, cuffs and  any other areas where a firm  appearance is desired.  4.

COMPETE LIE OF APPUAMES  FOR FREE ESTIMATE - Call 886-2728  By LYNN CARTER  Q. What technique of makeup  will help to camouflage an acne-  pitted skin?    .  A. Try filling in the pits with  a cream base that is somewhat  lighter than skin tone. This base  can be pressed in and set by  using a puff lightly with talcum  powder. For the makeup, use  a liquid foundation cream of a  skin-matching tone, smoothed  on evenly and carefully so as  not to disturb the first cream  base. Then your rouge, and  finally your powder.  Q. What do you suggest as a  good, general, and inexpensive  skin astringent?  A. Witch hazel ... best used  by spraying with an atomizer.  Q. Do you have some special  shampooing tips for artificially  colored hair?  A. First of all, be sure to  rinse thoroughly, since shampoo  or soap of any kind that is left  in the touched-up hair can cause  streaks or marks. In hard-water areas where soap is difficult  to remove, follow the shampoo  rinse with an egg application.  Mix the yolk and white together,  and pour onto the scalp, rub  in lightly, then rinse well with  tepid water.  Q. Please suggest a makeup tip for reducing the prominence of bulging eyeballs.  A. A toucn of eyeshadow over  the entire eyelids, plus a heavier browline, will have the effect of subduing the eyes.  Q. Is there some corrective  treatment I can use for correcting a sallaw-looking complexion?  A. An on-the-surface camouflage for this, of course, is a  warm-tinted makeup base. For  more fundamental effects, however, try using one of the stimulating masks or packs featured  by all the cosmetic houses, and  include some brisk hand-patting  with skin freshener    in    your  usual facial cleansings.    -���-,-=-       '  ' I.-  Q. How is a thin type of face  rouged to add the illusion of  fullness to it?  A. To help establish breadth  to the features, rouge away  from the nose, blending it back  toward the ears. And if you  have prominent cheekbones, as  thin faces usually do, place the  rouge on them so as to lessen  their highlights.  Q. How is a chin- strap prepared for reducing a double  chin?  A. By chilling several thicknesses of gauze in witch hazel,  then tying these firmly around  the face and under the chin.  Q. ��� Please suggest a good  formula for a homemade skin  tonic and bleach.  A. One very good skin tonic  consists of a mixture of lemon "  juice and milk . . . massaged  thoroughly into the face and  throat every night before retiring.  Q. How can I deal with the  unattractive enlarged pores in  my nose?  A. Try frequent bathing of the  nose with a mixture of borax  and tepid water.  Q. What general recommendations can you make regarding  the battle against facial  wrinkles?  A.

Dump lease sought  Sechelt's municipal council at  its meeting last week arranged  to apply for a continuation for  one year of the lease on the  Sechelt Lands property now  used as a garbage dump.  Discussion which followed offered the suggestion that garbage collection should become a  tax instead oi a voluntary effort as it is now and this would  give the village a complete  garbage service. The approaching time when the regional district will be in operation was  also discussed but council  wound up by deciding to let  discussion on future garbage  collection and disposal be left  over to the next meeting.  Councillor . Clarke expressed  the opinion that the old municipal hall would make a good  library building. The library  will however get the plumbing  from the old building. What will  be done with it is not settled.  In the meantime the Municipal  Centennial grant of $2,000 for  the library is now in the hands  of the Centennial committee.  SOCCER  .
