Council decided the Municipal  hall would foe opened Monday,  Fefo. 27 to expedite the issuance  of motor car licenses to the public. This is done each year towards the end of the period  when licenses are issued.  Council was informed foy the  provincial surveyor of taxes  that the West Porpoise Bay extension now a part of the village has a tax assessment totalling $982 and that on 1966 taxes  only $79.67 has been paid leaving $903 unpaid. The assessor  said he would advise ratepayers  there to make them payable to  the village Municipal office.  When a building permit was  sought for a suite on top of C &  S store, an', argument arose as  to the need of copies of village  bylaws so that members of  council would be able to express  an opinion respecting them  when questions way be asked  covering subjects covered by  bylaws. Clerk Ted Rayner explained there are about 75 bylaws on record, half of them being not current. He suggested  that it would be better to await  the result of Municipal Act revisions expecjte^.b��fore;^thie legislature and that it would also  be better to wait to see just how  the new regional district would  operate. Councillor Morgan  Thompson moved that these bylaws be prepared for councillors toy June IS. The clerk replied he could offer no guarantee.  Councillor Ray Clarke report  ing on Hackett Park declared  he  Saw Centre saws with the only  expense involved the use of the  saws. Men have been cleaning  up the park and felling dangerous trees. No labor costs are involved, he said.  When the school board budget was presented for council's  approval Councillor Morgan  Thompson requested it be left  over until the next meeting and  in the meantime copies be obtained for each member of council so they could foe perused.  However after the chairman  advised that it be passed a vote  was taken resulting in a divided council two-to-two with the  chairman casting his first deciding vote in favor of approving the school board budget.  Council will apply to the district director of health for the  nursing care program covering  the village. This would entail a  cost of 10 cents per person in  the village, the total amounting  to $49:60. This nursing care, details of which are still being  formed by the health board will  be at the discretion of doctors  DINNER MEETING  There will be a dinner meeting of the council of the Pender Harbour and District Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday,  Feb. 14 at the Garden Bay Conference centre.

The centennial committee agreed to send plans of the  pool and its location to the  board for approval by its architects.  The board indicated that it expected to begin development of  the lower play area at the  school almost immediately, to  replace the play area which will  foe occupied foy the pool, and  that it seemed certain that construction of the pool could begin as soon as adequate funds  had been raised 'by the pool  committee.  halted      school budget  The failure of the naval De- CD  Long service honored  Members of Sechelt's village  councils>past and present, hast-.  ed '^al - enjoyable" dinner party  to honor Mrs. Christine Johnston who retired as ^chairman  of Sechelt Village council.

While there is no definite report available from the  judges it is surmised that they  decided to give Miss Vernon  another year of schooling before advancing her in the regional competitions.  2 accidents  Two auto accidents caused  three persons to be hospitalized.  One, on Saturday at about 3:30  p.m., involved Albert Rorison,  70, of Port' Mellon in an accident when his car ended up  against a pole at the entrance  to Port Mellon from Gibsons.  He is in St. Mary's Hospital  with internal injuries.  The second mishap about 4  p.m. Tuesday afternoon occurred on a private driveway when  a car driven by Syd Basey  struck a tree.

Dawe presented  Mrs. Johnston with a beautifully designed gold brooch, suitably engraved From the People  of Sechelt 1956-1966, also a scroll  which had been lettered and  decorated by Brother Mac-  Donald of the Residential  School.  Mrs. Johnston expressed her  pleasure and sincere thanks for  these two gifts from the people of Sechelt with their kind  thoughts and good wishes.  Those present were Magistrate Andrew and Mrs. Johnston, Chairman William Swain,  Mr. and Mrs. L.

The failure of the naval Destroyer escort Yukon to turn  up any trace of the tug Gulf  Master off Trail Island is disappointing Cecil Cosulich, president of the Riv Tow Marine  Ltd., owners of the lost craft,  declared in an interview with  the Coast News.  Mr. Cosulich felt there we're  two broad possibilities for the  sinking, one that she went down  for some unknown reason in  the middle of the Bay, or more  likely the Gulf Master might  have piled up on an inshore  rock and slid off into deep water.  Reluctantly, and only after  exhausting every possibility offered toy the electronic search  equipment, both on board the  company's search vessel Redfir  9 and the Yukon, Riv Tow  would now be compelled to  turn the locating of the wreck  over to the underwriters.  One remaining clue is the  stcry of a woman eyewitness  on Mission Point. She told of  an unusual occurrence, a boiling up of the waters off the  Point lout soundings of the  search vessel, which after repeatedly cruising that area  could raise only a low reading  on the magnometer, not sufficiently high to be the boat.  However it is possible the  underwriters will explore this  bare possibility on the strength  of this eye witness story, engaging local scuba divers to  makeja further attempt to lo-  ^^clrte the^sihikeh ';tu_v~-- '  $ over  % over  % of 1967  % of 1966  1966  1966  (budget  budget  Administration  6,647  8.8  5.2  5.7  Instruction  84,707  11.5  51.9  55.8  i(Teachers salaries  75,103  11.5  46.1  49.6)  Operation  57,205  40.7  12.5  10.7  .Repairs, Maintenance  48,011  62.6  7.9  5.8  Transportation  842  1-0  5.2  6.1  Aux..

J. C. K. Deevy of the  Sechelt RCMP for his untiring  vigilance in tracking down any  possible, clues. Mr. Cosulich  made an urgent plea that if  anyone in the Davis Bay or  the slightest evidence of wreckage, adrift or on shore, to in-  Scchelt area came across even  form the RCMP at Sechelt or  call direct to Riv Tow Marine,  Ph. FA 5-8231 Vancouver.  It's like working on a jigsaw puzzle, said Mr. Cosulich,  every piece has to be in place  before the picture is completed,  a grim puzzle that may yet reveal the cause of the unexplained loss of a well-manned, well  equipped, highly seaworthy,  tl:ree-year old metal-hulled tug,  tr.king with her all five members of her crew off Sechelt  Farbor on a squally wintry  Jan. 11, 1967.  The school board's budget for  the calendar year 1967 is 19.9%  higher than the 1966 /budget.  The actual dollar increase is  $262,085, resulting in a budget  which has now, at $1,580,806  topped the one and a half million dollar mark for the first  time. However, the increase  is lower, both in dollars and  percentage, than the increase  in budgets between 1965 and  1966.  Neighboring and similar sized  school districts are experiencing similar budget increases  ranging from 20 to 27%.  Almost half the budget increase is .caused by increased  salary costs. Teachers salaries  alone account for 46.1% oi the  entire budget. A 25% increase  in funds for teaching supplies  for kindergarten pupils, the provision of a minimum of $50 for  athletic supplies in small schools  a. 75% increase in funds for library books for elementary pupils, and; the doubling of funds  for music supplies-for Elementary pupils, and special allotments for home economics and  industrial education courses are  other factors. So is the implementation of a plan which will  almost double the clerical assistance given to schools in order  to help free principals and  teachers from clerical work and  enable them to devote more  time to education. The board has  also provided funds to hire two  school librarians, a music teach  er for Elphinstone Secondary  School and a specialist to help  students with physical or mental  learning problems.  Operating, repairs and maintenance and capital costs show  heavy percentage increases.  One of the biggest is the $28,750  figure set aside for the rental  of portable classrooms due to  the current government freeze  on school construction, which  prevents the board from building classrooms approved by the  owner electors under Referendum No. 8. Another factor is  the provision of adequate funds  to upgrade all school sites over  a period of years in conjunction  with the Board's new landscape  architect. Also, more lease  lights are being provided around  schools to increase night time  security.  Small additions to the Davis  Bay and Roberts Creek Elementary Schools and Pender Harbour Secondary School are  planned, mainly to provide much  needed storage facilities.  One  happy  note is  the fact,  that, in spite of increased appraisal values, better coverage,,  allowance for coverage on possible construction this year and.  the provision of boiler insurance  overall   insurance   costs   have  been reduced foy more than 14%  due to the introduction of the  primary and excess system of  fire insurance.  The transportation section of  the budget shows the smallest  dollar and percentage increase  in the budget, due to the board's  decision not to provide transportation for kindergarten children. There has, however, been  a 50% incease in funds for extra-curricular travel foy school  children. Dental program costs  have been reduced as there appears to be a probability that  the Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  will confine its dental program  to the Pender Harbour area in  1967, in view of the permanent  presence of a dentist at Gibsons.  Firemen awarded mugs  ttt f, t**tS*+S  Kinsmen of Gibsons have been hard at it this past week in  mailing out 1,600 Mothers' March appeal letters for release on  Tuesday. They hope the people of this area will respond to this  annual appeal with open-hearted generosity that has characterized  the previous door to door canvass.  Twenty-seven members of Gib  sons and Area Volunteer Fire  department at the annual banquet in Danny's Dining Room,  given to the firemen by the  council of Gibsons village, received their Service Mugs. Firemen are not paid for their services during the year.  Among the 27 who received  their awards are Fred Feeney,  Norman Mackay and Bob Wilson each dating back to 1947.  John Wilson joined in 1948, Bill  Scott, the chief, in 1954 and Marvin Volen with Herb Winn in  1954, Cliff Mahlman in 1955, Roy  Malyea, Ed Kullander and Fred  Holland in 19158 with Brucfe  Campbell joining in 1959. Fifteen others range from 1960 to  1966 with two more being on  probation since late last year.  The Service Mugs have the date  of joining the department engraved on them and on leaving  the department that date will  be added.  A presentation of a fly fishing rod with shiny gang trolJ  was made to Roy Malyea, the  former secretary of the fire de  partment for a good many years  With the aid of a landing net,  part of the presentation, it is  expected he will enjoy many  hours in a pleasurable way.  Owing to the absence of Councillor Fred Feeney, fire committee chairman who was filling in in North Vancouver on  a key job for hs employer, B.C.  Telephones, Councillor Ken God-  dard, present with his wife Lorraine thanked the firemen on  behalf of council for their fine  efforts during the year, including the time taken on weekly  practices. -;  Fire Chief Bill Scott thanked  council on behalf of the volunteer firemen for its co-operation  in strengthening the department  for service in the village area.

Unity in the Community gets things done  The school board budget  If the government of British Columbia can add a whopping  $82 millions of dollars to its budget for 1967 with practically no  public outcry there should not even be slight murmurings over the  $262,000 increase to the district school board's budget for the year.  It might be right at this point to point out after close examination of the budget that total wages and salaries reach $946,141 and  if one adds transportation costs, that of .pupils foy fous and travelling  allowances due to the widespread nature of the school district, one  gets the figure of $1,032,081 ��� this before one considers other fixed  expenses, building maintenance and supplies and possible capital  expenditure..  Having eliminated salaries, wages and travel expenses, there  are other fixed expenses covering defot servicing, heat, light, fuel,  water, insurance and now rentals, as the fooard is forced into the  position of renting those round school rooms at a cost of $28,750 this  year because the government has placed a freeze on new construction. The total of these fixed expenses is in the region of $275,000.  This leaves the school fooard slightly less than $300,000 for general maintenance and exigencies that are bound to arise.  The moral of it is that the individual who will pay only one  dollar in taxation due to the home-owner grant is in a more favorable position to have a good night's sleep more often than does a  member of the school board, not only when battling with the budget but during the rest of the year.  All government costs, federal, provincial, municipal and school  fooard are rising not only due to pressures from inflation but because of public demand and in the case of British Columbia because its government is denying lesser governments the right to  operate in a normal manner. The power of education is being  throttled by another type of power which has the right to exist but  not at the expense of education.  Municipal councils are viewing with great concern the problem  of educational budgets. They have the right to question the total  budget but cannot arbitrate specifics within the budget. The claim  has foeen made that municipal councils are asked to approve a pig-  in-a-poke. This is correct because they have no knowledge of what  will foe the actual cost to the taxpayer. The education department  apportions by formula how much of the budget costs the government will pay leaving the remainder for the taxpayer to pay and  the municipal government to collect and hand over without question  to the school fooard. Further it is expected to pay to the school  fooard before it collects any of the school tax, a certain portion of  the school budget. Many have to resort to the bank for some of  these payments during the early part of the year. Some do not  which places the school board in the position of having to get  money with which to carry on from the bank.  No one in their right senses can claim this is an equitable situation. Further troubles are added when the provincial government  is unable to place on the money market debentures already approved by the taxpayer for necessary expansion of school affairs. With  a provincial government piling up surplus after surplus it is about  time the taxpayer took a good long look at provincial government  .management of school, hospital and municipal affairs and provincial government policies concerning the same.  The carrot, representing the home-owner grant, now being  dangled before the eyes of the taxpayer, is blocking the view.  While the public remains apathetic, this will continue.  COAST NEWS  19 u: ins ii,ii  It was reported that the  Headlanders are dropping all  thought of amalgamation plans.  Winter held the Cove in an  icy grip all last week, a thick  sheet of ice covered the approaches to the govt, float, so  no boats called.  New president of the Gibsons  Recreational Society is Eric  Inglis with J. Drummond, vice-  president and Cliff Leach, secretary.  Many    residents    of    Sechelt  who remember Miss Bette Fee  as a school teacher here in  1942 and 1943 heard her speak  over the air from London.  February has had a record  for storms, and the loss of the  ferry. The Island Flier is an  example of the need for a telephone  line  to Gambier Island.  A recent visitor to Kleindale  was Father Baxter of Sechelt  Residential School. He held a  first mass in Pender Harbor  Sunday in the home of Mr. and  Mrs. O. Dubois.  Thirty  minutes  from  Sechelt  to Vancouver!  Twenty minutes from Gibsons  to Bayshore Inn!  This is the type of daily express air passenger and freight  service Al Campbell, owner-  manager of Tyee Airways,  hopes to inaugurate on acceptance of his company's brief  now in preparation for submission to the Air Transport Board,  Ottawa.  Mr. Campbell maintains there  is sufficient volume of (business  for both passenger and freight  not already being handled by  any other air carrier in this  region to justify such a service.  If sanctioned by the air transport board, existing passenger  rates could automatically be  reduced from the present $31  one way charter flight to at  least $9.  The proposed extension of the  Tyee Airways present service,  which extends from Sechelt to  Jervis Bay, serves at least 25  licensed points including Nelson Isle, Pender Harbour, Egmont, Salmon Inlet, Secret  Cove, Thornamby Isle and Gibsons. An air service from these  points to Vancouver would be  of the greatest service to loggers, Port Mellon mill workers  and booming grounds, business  people, summer commuters at  Gambier and Keats, booming  contractors at far out points  such as Nelson Island and Salmon Inlet.  It would also supply a fast  air freight service at reasonable rates for emergency supplies and men. Such an extended service would also be an important adjunct in aiding the  further growth and industrialization of Gibsons and Sechelt.  Mr. Campbell explained that  due to the economic fluctuation  of the logging industry, we must  look to other sources of revenue such as the summer tourist industry and people on the  move from Sechelt and Gibsons. The problem facing the  Tyee Airways is to maintain  and improve the present schedule.  She obvious solution lies in  extending the present schedule  to Vancouver. Such an extension would not cut into the  operating revenue of other air  carriers, he said.  At the present time the Tyee  fleet consists of a seven-passenger Norseman, two three-  passenger Cessna 180's and a  Cessna 185 on order. With the  granting of'the extension of its  schedule through to Vancouver,  this fleet would be increased  by at least one six-passenger  Beaver and the addition of further aircraft as the expansion  of  the service warrented.  The company based in well  sheltered Porpoise Bay maintains a modern quonset repair  shop hanger and is in constant  contact with its aircraft by two-  way radio. The present staff  includes four pilots with total  of more than 12,000 hours of  accident free operation. A  licensed air mechanic and des-  patcher secretary completes  the operational staff.  In support of this proposed  Vancouver-Gibsons-Sechelt run,  R. G. Bentall, vice-president,  Dominion Construction Co. Ltd.,  Vancouver writes that as a resident of Keats Island, it would  mean a great deal to have air  service to the Gibsons-Keats  Island area. There are a number of business and professional  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOB  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c^/o this newspaper.  Q. What do the letters Q.C.  after a lawyer's name mean,  and what is the difference between a barrister and a solicitor.  A. Q.C. stands for Queen's  Counsel but it doesn't mean  much in Canada except in B.C.  In Britain, the title originally  meant that a lawyer.was eminent enough to be retained by  the Sovereign. If the Sovereign  was a king the initials K.C.  were used. The award of this  honor soon came to be given  to any eminent barrister whether he acted for the crown or  not.  English lawyers are divided  into two separate professions���  barristers and solicitors. Barristers appear in court. Soli\%-  lors cannot conduct court cases  but draw wills, deeds, mortgages, contracts, incorporate  companies, etc. A lawyer in  England cannot be both a barrister and a solicitor. A client  cannot consult a barrister directly but must do so through  a solicitor.  In Canada, most lawyers are  both barristers and solicitors.  The English system is by far  the best but as only about one  tenth of lawyers are barristers,  the introduction of the system  here, as has been suggested,  would work a considerable  hardship on clients in small  towns where a barrister could  not find enough work to do.  One would have to be brought  in from the larger cities where  POINT  OF LAW  Of ~/r fJraclicinp JLawyw  they would tend to congregate.  To return to the honor Q.C,  this in Canada has degenerated  into a piece of political patronage, except in B.C. where it is  reserved for a small percentage of the profession. About  one-half the lawyers outside  B.C. are Q.C.'s. There are more  Q.C. in the city of Toronto than  in al of Britain. This empty  honor not only does not indicate court room ability fout has  even been awarded to sheriffs  and librarians who were also  lawyers.  Unfortunately, even in B.C.,  there is some evidence of late  that what should foe only an  honor and reward for ability  as a counsel is becoming a reward for political services rendered.  A HUGE FOLDER  A brochure, believed to unfold into the biggest state  travel folder in the U.S., is  available from the nation's biggest state. Alaska has just produced a 24 by 36 inch full-color  information piece which contains more than 65 pictures and  lots of how-to-go, when-to-go  and where-to-go information  about the 49th State.  Available from Alaska, too,  is the 49th State's 1967 Calendar of Events folder which lists  approximately 200 events of interest to visitors. These vary  from traditional sled dog races  and skiing in the winter to a  number of once-only festivals  and spectaculars to be staged  this summer in honor of the  Alaska Purchase Centennial. It  was 100 years ago this year'  that the U.S. purchased Alaska  from Czarist Russia.

The people on Keats  Island have found the ferry service from Horseshoe Bay to  Keats Island awkward and  frustrating. To have a schedule air service from downtown  Vancouver would be a tremendous advantage and would  serve to reduce both time and  cost. Furthermore there are  many visitors who come to the  Island  during the  summertime  and it is most difficult for them  to take the various forms of  transportation right from the  downtown area, he maintained.  "I, therefore, feel that if this  service can be effected it would  be well supported by the residents of Keats Island, and can  assure you that Mr. H. C. Ben-  tall, the president of the Dominion Construction Co., together with myself and members of my families would use  this service," Mr. Bethall concluded. ,  N.

Additional zoning  districts would be an unnecessary complication. However,  should the village boundaries  foe extended it would probably  be necessary to add a heavy  industry zone, a small holdings  or agricultural zone and possibly others to cover such  things as extractive industries.  ZONING POLICY  Until such time as the sanitary sewer, storm drainage and  water supply systems have  been improved, there will be  problems in accommodating  most kinds of major development. For this reason we suggest that Council adopt a conservative policy in the Plan  Section of the Zoning Bylaw.  The possibilities of major harbor improvements and urban  renewal projects also favor a  conservative policy until decisions have been made on  these matters.  SINGLE FAMILY ZONE  The Single-Family Zone is intended to regulate only those  areas where more expensive  houses are built and where  there is likely to be some local  demand for this type of zoning.  Only the bluff is suggested for  this Zone. We do not believe  that it is either necessary or  desirable to zone any of the  remaining residential areas for  single family housing only. If,  however, there is a reasonable  request, say, in connection with  a replotting scheme, or in areas  subsequently, incorporated into  Gibsons Landing, extension of  the single family zone should  be considered.  TWO-FAMILY  RESIDENTIAL ZONE  The Two-Family Residential  Zone which. is proposed for  most of the residential portions  of the village differs principally  in that duplexes and second  suites would be permitted. The  requirements would ensure that  the residential character of the  areas covered by it would be  preserved. However, because  of the lack of sanitary sewer  facilities in the village, it is  ijecommended that two-family  dwellings require the approval  of the Medical Health Officer.  MULTIPLE  RESIDENTIAL ZONE  The Multiple Residential  Zone is intended to provide  areas for apartments and other  multiple residential development including conversions  where they may be rationally  related to the services, facilities and other development in  the village.  The    existing    demand    for  apartm ent    accommodation  would appear limited. The new,  34 unit  block  on .School  Road  plus one or two  similar sized  projects  would probably  satisfy the locally    generated    demand within the immediate future. Beyond    this,    additional  new     multiple .   development  would    have    to jbe based on  changed conditions.  One  possibility is the increased popularity of apartments for retirement  living;   If the   village,   through  improvements to    the    harbor  and   other  facilities,   can   improve  its  .competitive  position  as a place to live, it could expect to attract a substantially  increased    retirement    population. This would, of course, increase   the  demand  for  other  types of housing in  the area.  It would not seem possible to  arrive at an accurate estimate  of future demand for multiple  residential land at the present  time.  Within the foreseeable future  we would expect that most new  multiple development would  take place on vacant land.  Given the relatively low price  of land in the village and the  availability of vacant sites, we  would not expect that existing  buildings would be cleared except along the waterfront.  Consequently we propose a  fairly generous zone for multiple dwellings in our long  range proposals. The zone  would cover all existing apartment and multiple development  not included in the commercial  and waterfront zones. The proposed multiple zone covers  those areas which in our opinion  are most suitable for apartments and smaller multiple  structures including lodging  houses and .tourist homes. The  properties north-west of School  ^  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS LANDING  CONTRACT No. 398-2  CONSTRUCTION OF RESERVOIRS, PUMPING  STATIONS  AND WATER MAINS  CALL FOR TENDERS  Sealed tenders marked "Village of Gibsons Landing Contract No. 398-2 for Construction of Reservoirs, Pumping  Stations and Water Mains" will be received by the undersigned up to 11:00 a.m. local time of Friday, February 24,  1967, and will foe opened in public at that time and date.  Contract drawings and specifications may be obtained  from Dayton and Knight Limited, Consulting Engineers,  1463 Bellevue Ave., West Vancouver, B.C., on or after January 31, 1967, on payment of $25.00, which will be refunded  on return of the documents in good condition within 30 days  from receipt of tenders.  The work comprises construction of two pumping stations, approximately 1,600 feet of water main and a ground  storage reservoir. The Corporation will supply the major  waterworks materials.  The lowest or any tender will not necessarily be accepted.  C. F. Gooding,  Municipal Clerk,  Village of Gibsons Landing,  Gibsons, B.C.  Road and south of Winn Road  have adequate depth for apartments and have good access  to the main commercial and  civic areas. While lot and potential site depths are more  limited in the remaining areas  suggested for multiple zoning,  they are close to the centre  of the village and 'have good  views over the harbor. They  would foe suitable for smaller  multiple structures and conversions. It should toe noted that  apartments, are also permitted  in the commercial and waterfront zones.  For the immediate situation,  and until the water system is  improved and sanitary sewers  and treatment are provided, we  .recommend that the Multiple  Residential Zone generally be  limited to those properties in  residential areas currently used  for multiple purposes.  We have proposed one, rather  than two or more multiple  zones. We believe that with the  limited amount of multiple development that can be expected and the other possibilities  for controlling the relationships  between multiple residential  and other forms of development  that this would be unnecessary.  The suggested requirements  of the zone would permit a  wide range of multiple housing  forms including high rise apartments, even though they are  unlikely to be built in the immediate future. The regulations  would relate the permitted feet  per dwelling unit; would control the height of buildings in  relation to nearby one and two  family zoned properties; and  would limit ground coverage on  the basis of different building  heights. In this way, one zoning classification can serve to  control development in a variety of situations. We have at  the same time, tried to keep  the nature of the controls  simple while allowing flexibility  of development.  GENERAL  COMMERCIAL ZONE  The objectives of the General  Commercial Zone are to provide an area where a wide  range of intensive commercial  uses can Ibe .developed in a  compact form. For this reason  extensive uses such as service  AVAILABLE  FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE  Centennial Medallions 50c  St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliaries Cook Book $1.75  at the  Coast News  GIBSONS  stations and car sales lots are  excluded.  This zone would cover the  existing commercial development in the main commercial  area along Marine Drive and  Gower Point Road. The regulations would permit flexibility of  development for both small and  large scale projects. Given the  existing breakdown of ownership and the larger sites available elsewhere we would expect that most new development in ths area would probably be on an individual lot  basis.  HIGHWAY  COMMERCIAL ZONE  The purpose of the Highway  Commercial Zone is to provide  Coast News, Feb.  9, 1967.       3  areas for more extensive commercial uses, particularly  those associated with automobiles, where they will not interfere with other types of development. Service stations^'  drive-ins and used car lots are  among the uses that would be  permitted in this zone but excluded from the General Commercial Zone.  This would cover small local  commercial areas and parts of  the periphery of the main commercial area. Larger parking  lots to serve the main shopping  area should be confined to the  Highway Commercial Zone.  (To be continued)  NOTICE  R. S.

The drop in  egg prices reflects the recent  sudden upsurge in production  from Canadian poultry farms.  WILL BE MISSED  Miss May Walker will leave  on Feb. 16 for Kelowna where  she will enter a nursing home.  She will be near her niece Mrs.  Grant Davis, whose home is in  that city.

This gentle lady's pres<  ence will be missed at Roberts  Creek where she made so many  friends.  Beauty  hints  (By LYNN CARTER)  Q. Please comment on the  treatment of problem skin, that  is, blaickheads.  A. Give your face a good  steaming, or make a mask of  hot water on cotton with a little soap. Leave this on 15 minutes. Then squeeze the blackheads gently. If they don't come  out easily, don't insist. Moisten  again and try once more. Twice  a week, treat yourself to a facial mask.  Q. What is a good, softening  treatment for the lips during  cold weather?  A. Try winterizing your lipstick the way the models do.  With your lip brush, mix some  . petroleum jelly and lipstick,  and apply this as usual. The jelly adds a pretty, dewy shine,  eliminating the need for a lip  gloss, as well as providing an  extra protection for your lips  during the cold months.  Q. How can the distance between one's eyes be seemingly  increased or decreased through  the magic of makeup?  A. If the eyes are too close  together, blend a light shade of  eye shadow from the center of  the lids to the outer corners. If  the eyes are too far apart, apply shadow at the corners of  the lids nearest the nose.  Q. Can you suggest a quick  and simple facial to combat  brow wrinkles?  A. The simplest and most  convenient I can think of is  achieved by soap. Simply work  up an extra-thick lather and  leave it on your brow until dry.  Then rinse and.apply your favorite moisturizing cream, using  an upward massaging motion.  ' Q. My hands perspire excessively on special occasions.  What can I do about this?  A. Try applying a little anti-  perspirant to your hands, or if  you prefer, a touch of cologne  of toilet water, just before you  go out.  Etiquette  (By ROBERTA LEE)  Q. When a bride is writing  her thank-you notes for wedding  gifts received, does she write  also to the bridegroom's parents  and to her brothers and sisters  for the gifts they gave? ;  A. If she has already given  them her sincere verbal thanks,  it is not absolutely necessary to  write to them. On the other  hand though, there never is anything wrong with a personally-  written note of thanks ��� always  an indication of good-breeding.  Q. Would it be all right for  me to have my wedding invitations engraved in gold ink?  A. For wedding invitations,  only black ink should be used.  Silver or gold ink are frequently used for 25th and 50th anniversary invitations, if one wishes.  Q. What is the proper way to  eat raw apples or pears at the  table?  A. You should operate on  these with your knife before eating them. The fruit should be  quartered, peeled, cored, and  then each quarter eaten with  the fingers.  Q. I've heard that there are  eight "primary observances" in  the way of wedding anniversaries. What might these be?  A. One year, paper; five  years, wood; ten years, tin;  15 years, crystal; 20 years china; 25 years silver; 50 years,  gold; 75 years, diamond.  Q. Should a hostess keep on  eating as long as her guests do?  A. Yes. A thoughtful and tact  ful hostess will notice which of  her guests are a little slow with  their food and she will manage  to pace her own eating with her  slowest guest.  Editor: Having moved from  Yacalt to Walla Walla in Washington state I find your paper  comes to me later the closer  I get to the border. Straighten  this out please. I enjoy reading  the Coast News very much. ���  E. N. Paul, Walla Walla.  Editor: All residents living  nearby will be interested in  knowing we have a real hunter  in the area, a dog hunter!  Our German shepherd came  home Saturday morning, Jan. 28  with a bullet in his upper jaw.  A person like this has to be  sick. Even if the dog was being  a pest, there aren't but two or  three in this vicinity,, so the person could have made some effort to get in touch with us, and  we would have kept him tied.  This seems cruel enough punishment for a big dog, but not  as cruel and sadistic as a bullet. Had the bullet entered his  head one quarter' inch higher  the poor animal would have  died in prolonged agony and  probably would never have been  found. I just can't find the  words to describe the feelings  of contempt for this person who  is so obviously sick and without  a grain of human decency.  ���Mrs'. Ken Fiedler, North Rd.  Gibsons.  that the N.H.A. code means progress. The' latest word is that it  is to become mandatory for the  whole of B.C.  Instead of 500 buildings costing $5,000 these people would  be obliged to build at least $10,-  000 buildings. So Victoria could  pick up an extra $50,000 in five  percent tax on materials and  their assessors could go to work  on $2H million more of real estate.  It looks like this pensioner  paradise of ours is about to  come to a sudden and sorry end.  ���A. R. Simpkins.  Editor: The Church Committee of the Parish of St. Hilda,  Sechelt, wishes to thank your  paper for the coverage it has  given the various activities of  the Anglican Churches during  the past year. We shall look forward to continued interest in the  coming year. ��� (Mrs.) Beatrice  Rankin, Secretary, St. Hilda's  Church Committee.  Editor: One oil truck on one  eight hour shift in Vancouver  collects one million dollars a  year gasoline road tax for Victoria. Two old trucks oh Feb. 28  will cost me $450 re licence renewal for Victoria. It would appear that those happy boys have  enough money to get by on.  If 500 ..summer campers or  pensioners each built a $5,000  dwelling the B.C. government  would then have 2V�� million dollars of new real estate to assess  and tax (in many cases no  home-owner grant).

Due to the tremendous effort  of community newspapers in  the province and other sales  agencies, we have again experienced a record demand for  subscriptions to our magazine.  The results of this promotion  have been very encouraging.  Sales of the Winter issue of  our magazine have exceeded  150,000 copies, which places it  among the best sellers in Canada. Also, we had a record  number of Bonus Diaries available and Were able to put these  in the hands of over 75,000 subscribers.  We look forward to another  excellent promotion effort this  Fall and wish to extend to you  our very best wishes for the  coming year.���- G. L. Levy,  Business Manager, Beautiful  British Columbia Magazine.  Dateline Victoria  John Mika, Victoria Times legislative reporter wrote the following concerning the appointment of members to legislative  committees:  Mrs. Isabel Dawson emerged  as the first among equals in the  government's battery of three  women ministers-without-portfo-  lio.  The list of memberships in  legislative committees struck by  the house shows the Mackenzie  riding representative sitting on  four committees.  They are municipal affairs,  forestry and fishing, labor and  social welfare and education. All  but labor are high-ranking committees.  Her membership on social  welfare and education indicates  she may have been the one Premier Bennett really had in mind  when he first announced expansively that all the women ministers would play vital roles in  the government's program of  services to people.  Her busy schedule contrasts  with that of her colleagues.  Mrs. Grace McCarthy has  been seated on the private bills  and municipal affairs committees. However these both will  be very active this year.  But Mrs. Pat Jordan, who was  much-praised by Premier Bennett during the election as the  former Vernon beauty queen,  has been relegated to the public  accounts and labor committees.  Public accounts meets only  once or twice in a session on  purely routine matters and the  labor committee has not met at  all for years.  Among other conveners selected this year, Ernie Lecours of  Richmond, the government's  severest critic in its own backbenches, will be watched closely  to see if he will kick over the  applecart as chairman of the  labor committee which has been  kept moribund for years.  Mr. Lecours said he would  like to see the labor committee  meet for discussions for a  change, particularly on the question of ex parte injunctions  which he feels has been misrepresented by union spokesmen  "But it's all in the hands of  the house," he said. "They've  got to refer something to us  first."  That was the ruling last year  after NDP members of committee created an uproar because  the Socreds wouldn't convene  the agriculture or labor committees to study problems they  were interested in.

Add51,565  Th number of telephones in  service in the B.C. Telephone  Company's system grew by a  record 51,565 during 1966. At  the same time, the company's  capital expenditures reached an  all time high of $60,681,708.  The number of B.C. Telephone  employees stood at 7,243 at the  end of 1966, up by 906 from December 31, 1965 and the highest  figure in the company's history.  The previous high was 7,130 in  1957, before many of the company's offices were converted to  dial service.  By 1966 year end, 98.7 per cent  of the telephones in the company's system were on dial service. The number of telephones  in the company's system totalled 761,129, up 7.3 percent from  a year earlier. The gain in 196S  was 47,856 telephones or 7.2  percent.  The average number of daily  local calls made through the  company's system during 1966  totalled 4.9 million, up from 4.5  million in 1965, the previous record year.  Average daily toll calls totalled more than 97,500, up from  87,400 in 1965 and this increase  was achieved even though the  number of long distance calls  in several regions was reduced  by the introduction of expanded  flat-rate calling areas.  The Greater Vancouver flat-  rate calling area was enlarged  in October with introduction of  cross-core calling which removed tolls, from calls between  North and West Vancouver and  the Port Moody, New Westminster and Richmond telephone  offices.  Dividend  up  Mr. Ronald C. Brown, branch  manager of the Great-West Life  assurance Company's Vancouver Pacific branch, announces  that his company has approved  an increase in its dividend  scale for participating policyholders effective Jan. 1. The  rate of interest on dividend accumulations has been advanced  from 5.25 to 5.35 percent.  Mr. Brown said that the increase marks the ninth time  in the past 11 years that his  company has increased dividends for Canadian policyholders. He also said that the new  dividend scale reflects the continuing improvement in earnings on company investments.

Memories are  sharpened, experiences recaptured. It is a day when togetherness  means so much and ��� as always with B.C. TEL���costs so little.  Now a student son or daughter away at college can afford a  long distance call home .(especially if they call "collect"!).  Long distance rates are among the very few items of personal  expenditures which, over the years, have lagged far behind  the general rise in other living costs. In fact, many long distance  calls actually cost less in dollars and cents today than 10 years  ago. Moreover, after 6 pm and all day Sunday they are cheaper  by about one-fifth.  Check the rates yourself in your telephone book or dial "O"  and ask the operator. You'll be surprised how little it costs to  enjoy "the next best thing to being there."

S.  Mallory, members of the Roberts Creek Hospital Auxiliary,  presided in the Thrift Shop at  Sechelt last Saturday.

VALENTINE  BINGO  FRIDAY  8 p.m.  INDIAN VILLAGE HALL  SECHELT  $15 MINIMUM  CHANCE FOR $300  SECHELT TOTEM CLUB  DEAR DORIS  advice ihrdm -;:���������  Doris Clark  Stick it out nursie  BOWLING    Safety pennant flown  DEAR DORIS ��� I would like  to add a little to your answer to  Nursie, because I am a registered nurse and I think it is a  wonderful profession.  Training is hard but you certainly grow up quick. Things  aren't handed to you on a silver  platter. But isn't that life?  I suggest that when the girls  feel really blue a bunch of  them should go to a show or  out for a pop just to get out of  residence for a while. They'll  feel much better afterwards.  Stick it out, Nursie. Knowing  how to be a good nurse will  help you all your life, whether  you stay at nursing or decide to  get married and raise a family.  One Who Knows  DEAR ONE ��� How true!  Sometimes married couples get  so disgusted they would like to  give up. But they put their  chins up and keep going. After  the rough time is past they are  glad they stuck it out. Same  with nursing ��� or anything  tough and worth while.  DEAR DORIS ��� My husband's parents are quite wealthy and have been helping us  in many ways, while I've felt  that if we had tried, we could  have lived on my salary while  my husband completed graduate studies. Always strings are  attached to this help.  My husband feels his parents  would feel rejected and hurt if  he refused to accept the money,  even though he is now working.  My suggestion is ��� if so ��� put  the money in our 17-month-old  son's bank account ��� while we  pay and decide ourselves  (about a car, a new suit, etc.)  Am I drawing the line too  fine?  Breaking Apron Strings  DEAR   BREAKING   ���   Not  for my money ��� or theirs. You  two need to stand on your own  four feet.  But be gentle. Generous,  wealthy in-laws are hard to  come by. They are human people and have a habit of being  needed. And Hubby has habits  of getting helped.  Once he gets the idea, he'll  be the one who is proud of  being able to function as a  grown-up independent . unit  with you. It may take years.  DEAR DORIS ��� My future  husband will be working nights,  five nights a week. I have never  spent a night alone in an empty  house and I am afraid. I realize  this is silly but my whole family have been like this since my  father died two years ago.  The hard part is that quite  often I have nightmares in regard to-death and I wake up,  shaken up, and being all alone  in the dark would not help matters. My husband may not be  able to get a day shift for  years, so I have to fight this  problem.  I do not want to start bringing over my sisters to spend  the night with me, as this  would complicate things for everyone.  Afraid At Night  DEAR AFRAID ��� It's not  silly. Many married women  with babies find themselves alone at night once in a while  and don't like it. A convenient  sister might visit occasionally,  but five nights a week?  For one thing, that nightmare business needs solving;  which may mean bringing into  the open your submerged and  terrifying experiences with  death. A session with a psychiatrist ��� even one session ���  might be all you'd need.  Then a talk with the police;  the establishment of neighborly relations with the people  next door; a telephone you can  ring in an emergency; these  will all help you to sleep in  peace.  Don't, for heaven's sake,  leave yourself so vulnerable  that you pass on your fear of  the dark and aloneness to your  own small fry, when they get  there.  Confidential to Modesty ��� If  your inquiry is;/on the level*  write in again, this time  supplying your name and address for my reply. Restate  your question.  To Ambitious ��� To find out  about joining the navy, write to  The Canadian Armed Forces  Recruiting Centre, 239 Queen  Street, Ottawa, Canada.  Plan cooking school  THIS VITAL  YOUNG  RELIGION  many paths  ONE GOD  many colours  ONE RACE  many countries  ONE WORLD  There are three million peoplo  around the world today who believe that the unification of mankind  is the will of God for our age. They  call themselves Baha'ls.  Perhaps Baha'i is what you are  looking for.  Information upon request! 15 Lola  Road, Toronto 7.  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliaries Co-ordinating council held  its first meeting of the year  Jan. 31 at the hospital. The  new director of nursing, Mrs.  Mary Gordon, outlined a list  of equipment that the hospital  needs at the present time.  Sechelt Auxiliary reported  their annual smorgasbord last  fall had been an outstanding  success; Pender Harbour reported similar success with  their fall bazaar and Roberts  Creek reported similar results  from the Christmas coffee  party.  Mrs. Willis reported from  Port Mellon that the initial  opening of the Thrift Shop had  far exceeded expectations. It  will be necessary to keep up  a continual stock of items for  sale, and this will mean���good  bit of canvassing, lt was suggested that each auxiliary  should have an organized pickup to simplify matters and ensure that people would have  parcels ready.  Mrs. J. Parker outlined plans  to hold a cooking school on  April 26. This is to be known  as In Tune With The Times  and will be sponsored jointly  with the Hospital auxiliaries  and the B.C. Hydro. Tickets  will be distributed shortly and  complete information will be  published within the next few  weeks.

Seek action  Memberships are wanted now  by the Sunshine Coast Tourist  association if members want  to be included in the association's brochure. There have  been two extensions in time for  members to get their entries  in and it looks as though another  might  be  necessary.  Response from the Gibsons  end has been poor and a little  better from Sechelt. Pender  Harbor support has become divided with motel and resort  units turning out their own  literature to attract tourists.  Powell River response is reported as excellent.  Skits coming  At the initial meeting on  Feb. 6, an enthusiastic group  of Tidewater Players, including  five new members, mapped out  plans for a few variety skits.  These skits will be included in  the Kinsmen's Talent show in  April to help round out the  program.  Next Sunday will be a busy  one as rehearsals in the form  of a workshop will start, pre-  ceeded by a meeting and election of officers. Dues for the  coming year of 25c will also  be payable..  Those who could not make  it last Sunday are urged to be  out at Roberts Creek Hall, 8  p.m.,  Sunday, Feb. 12.  On Feb. 2, representatives of  Local 297, International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite &  Paper Mill Workers and Management of Canadian Forest  Products Ltd., Howe Sound  Pulp Division, gathered at a  ceremony to raise on the flag  pole the pennant awarded by  the Pulp & Paper Bureau for  their winning performance over  competing mills in the province  Guides to  split event  The monthly meeting of the  Sechelt Girl Guide Association  was held at the home of Mrs.  G. Potts with 13 members present, and decided to hold a Mother and Brownie evening, Feb.  16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Sechelt  Legion Hall. Mothers of Brownies will be contacted, and each  child will bring home a note  with details.  The same type of evening will  be held for Guides on Feb. 27  from 6 to 9 p.m. at St. Hilda's  Hall. This will be a dinner and  evening of fun and games.  Brownies and Guides have increased in number so much in  the area it was necessary for  the association to do away with  the annual mother and daughter  banquet and split it up into two  separate groups.  In commemoration of the Lord  Baden Powell Thinking Day, a  church parade will be held Feb.  19 and here again a note will be  sent home with each child giving details.  Coffee party  A coffee party and bake sale  at which young children will be  taken care of while mothers  enjoy themselves, will take  place on Feb. 14 from 10:30  a.m. until noon in Gibsons  United Church hall.  Members of the Evening unit  of United Church Women cordially invites all who would like  to attend. There will be aduit  supervision of young children  and refreshments will be served to them as well.  Want to fly?  Elphinstone Aero Club will  present its annual smorgasbord,  Sat., March 11 at Roberts Creek  Community Hall in the form of  a Chinese dinner. The event  starts at 7 p.m. and dancing will  follow. As the sale of tickets is  limited to 150, with two one  hour flights as door prizes, those  desiring to attend should get  them early. For reservations  phone Mrs. V. Swanson at 886-  7701 or Mrs. M. Meredith at 886-  2370 or call at the Kenmac plant  on the highway.  ��� ���- the Division having operated  with a zero frequency.  Tom Kennedy, Local 297, and  Fred Sanders, H.S.P., co-chairmen of the 1966 divisional advisory safety committee, raised  the pennant in the presence of  committee members.  The Safety Pennant Award is  forwarded to the winning mill  for each quarter by the Pulp  & Paper. Bureau representing  all the pulp and paper mills in  the province. The employee  group at Port Mellon have been  strong competitors in the pulp  and paper industry throughout  the year, ending the year 1966  with second lowest frequency  of 4.12 among 14 competing  mills in British Columbia.  In order to curb and eliminate industrial accidents which  would result in lost time earnings, both union and management have co-operatively developed continuing accident  prevention programs with  strong emphasis on education  in   job  content   procedures.
