Volume 21,  Number 5, February 2, 1967.  7c per copy  1867II1967  CANAOA-CONFEDER_QN  133 new homes in 1966record for entire area  School  budget  up 19.9%  The district school board budget presented to Gibsons council at Tuesday night's meeting  stated that this year's 'budget  will pass the $1,500,000 mark for  the first time. It also showed  the budget is up 19.9 percent  above last year.  Council was pleased to get a  copy of the budget as early as  Jan. 31. In the past it was given  a copy for approval almost at  the closing date, Feb. 20, for  approval or objection. Councillors expressed interest in the  size of the budget and precerit-  age of increase and will seek  copies of it for each memlber "of  council.  The school board letter with  a copy of the budget also gave  council the opportunity of hearing members of- the school  board's finance committee if  theyi desired to make such arrangement.. :-.������-....'���������.  Application by Vince Prewer  for a septic tank for the former  Gordon and Kennett building on  Marine Drive started argument  oni the advisability of allowing  improvement to a sub-standard  building. It was moved tha^the  provincial   health , inspector v  b^_3_ed to-state in w]rftu^'fo K  council whether he approves of  such an installation on that lot.  Council   after   hearing   of   a  complaint on overparking in the  business area decided that the  bylaw  will  be  enforced  which  would mean prosecutions will be  pressed.  A mild ruckus arose over the  non-appearance 'before council  of a letter from the Public Utilities commission covering questions on the water supply. Councillor James Drummond maintained it was purposely withheld  Chairman Wes Hodgson denied  this. It had been handed over,  he said, to Councillor Wally Peterson, water commissioner, for  checking into. Councillor Peterson said he had forgotten to  bring it back to council. A motion was passed to bring it before the next meeting.  Council has been advised by  the pollution board that it could  take over the school board effluent line from the school area to  deep  water.   Under health  department   instruction   the   line  down School Road was given official approval.  Since  the  line  originated the apartment block  on School road was been added.  As a result the pollution board  maintains   the   bacteria   count  from that line in the summer  time when school is  closed is  higher. The pollution board argues the school board had no  right  to  issue  further permits  When  the line was proposed  the  village granted permission  lor it to be laid at the same  time the village suggested some  village   connections   be   attached at the lower part of the line  in Marine Drive area. This was  granted   by  health  department  officials. The pollution board allowed  extended  use.  Councillor Drummond suggest  ed the pollution board is now  trying to throw the blame on  the council and school board.  The issue was left open for further probing.  So far council has received  seven applications for the position of the village clerk,  Jobies instal Queen Kathy Morrison  A particularly beautiful opening marked the start of the installation of the International  Order of Job's Daughters, Bethel 28, last Saturday evening.  The ceremony centred around a  golden Centennial Door which  the new slate of officers surrounded with .light and Queen-  elect Kathy Morrison opened  with The Key to Happiness, symbolizing the entry of Jobies into  the Centennial Year. Each girl  carried _the Centennial symbol  in fhe form ;pf a small white, satin P^ow, trimmed with purple.  The installation of officers  was flawlessly performed by retiring Queen Miss Phyllis Hauka, assisted by a team of installing officers, beautifully  gowned in formal dresses.  Installing officers: Honored  Queen,   Miss    Phyllis   Hauka1;  guide, Miss Carol Mylroie; mar-  shall, Miss Judy Brown; chaplain, Mrs. Diana Lukashuk; recorder, Mrs. Arlene Robinson;  reader, Mrs. Nancy Douglas;  musician Mrs. Caryl Cameron;  soloists, Mrs. Rose Jay arid Mr.  Gordon Hauka; sr. and jr. custodians, Mrs. Sandra Morrison  and Miss Susan Taylor, pages,  Misses Helen and Mary Bell.  Elected officers: Honored  Queen, Kathy Morrison; senior  and junior princesses, Marilyn  Hopkins and Carol Forshner;  guide; peborahyHpoekar; mar-  shall, Candy'McMedrah. "���;"���"'.''  Appointed: Chaplain, Jill Cobr  leigh; recorder, Jamis Postle-  thwaite; treasurer, Pam David;  messengers, Nanette Berdahl,  Pam Boyes,. Wilma Mandelkau,  Heather Patrick, Judy Gather-  cole; senior and junior custodians, Darlene Lawson and Eileen  Mackenzie; inner arid outer  guards, Glenys McLeod and  Wendy Tracy.  , Mrs. Rose Jay then honored  .the new Queen Kathy with a  lovely solo. Pins were presented  to the new princesses, honored  .. queen, and past honored queen,  and the top officers introduced  their families to those assembled.  .   As Queen Phyllis retired, her  brother Gordon sang the lovely  number He.  i  The Merit pin is an award giv-  /i^n;as a result of a secret ballot  /by" the girls and council mefn-  bers to the girl who has been,  . in their opinion, the most outstanding Jobie for the past six  months. Winner of the award  for this term was Pam Boyes,  who was presented with her pin  by Cathi Chamberlin, last term's  winner.  Regional district starts budget  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District trustee board's first  working meeting Friday night  last week in Sechelt's Hospital  Cottage passed three bylaws  during a session lasting from  7:30 to 11 p.m.  The three bylaws concerned  one for the general procedure  of 'board operations, one for re-  . muneration and the third for  the first budget. The major portion of the evening was spent  in digesting the 12-page procedural bylaw. The remuneration  bylaw allows board members  to receive $25 per meeting. An  extra $25 was allotted the chairman but as this section was permissive and not mandatory the  chairman, Norman Watson, decided he would not accept anything above director fees for the  time bein_.  .The budget  bylaw  called  for  possible  expenditure  of  $41,000  with garbage collection and disposal having top priority in expenditures.  In this $41,000 budget there is a $10,000 grant for  organization     purposes     which  comes from government sources   and   not  taxation.   The   remaining  $31,400 is still  subject  to revision and a meeting will  be held Friday, Feb.. 10 starting   at   7:30   p,m.   in   Sechelt's  Hospital Cottage, at which it is  expected there will be further  budget consideration. The three  bylaws  were given  their first,  second and third readings.  When the meeting opened  Chairman Watson explained  that Municipal Minister Campbell had offered assistance free  of cost in planning aspects of  the regional district. He was of  the oinion that the regional district board of directors consists  of good men who have good  backgrounds in respect to the  areas they represent.  The manner in which he viewed the work of the board as a  start would be planning by  blocks of land, a building code  which will be the nationally accepted National Housing Administration code, subdivision control and the selection of a building inspector. As regards electrical and health operations  they were covered by provincial department codes. The provincial municipal department  will provide a list of taxpayers  and the properties involved. .  Selection of an office for the  regional district prompted the  chairman to suggest that the  selection should be based on the  geographical position and popi-  ulation density, with . convenience to the public as the main  objective.  The problem of office location  came before the board when a  letter from Sechelt's municipal  council offered its farmer municipal hall rent free for the year.  iJ. A. Law.cnce, recreation di-  rojtor also offered the use of  i��:s  office  and facilities.  As the district board has a  committee at work on this  which has already submitted a  report, the chairman asked it  lo either bring in a new report  based on later information or to  back the report it had in hand.  One director commented that no  maiter where the office is to be  situated there will be recrimin  ations. The chairman suggested  the committee detail its justification for its selection as there  were already some pubic rumblings.  Mrs. Kathleen Nelson protested by letter a garbage dump  selection on Porpoise Bay road.  (Continued on Page 10)  Brother dies  in Vietnam  Casualties in Viet Nam fighting have come close to home  with the report of a Canadian  being in the latest casualty list.  Robert Wayne Kenny, 23, brother of Cpl. Norman Kenny of  the Gibsons detachment RCMP,  who enlisted from Canada in  United States forces is reported  killed in action. Cpl. Kenny received notification of his death  on Thursday of last week. Recently Cpl. Kenny was visited  by another brother. Last June  a sister in Cpl. Kenny's home  town, Seeley's Bay, near Kingston, Ont., died. The funeral of  Cpl. Kenny's brother will be  held at Seeley's Bay and he has  flown down there to take part  in the service.

This was  revealed in the tabulation issued by Bob Normin'.on of B.C. Hydro  which keeps records of new commercial an:'', heme construction  for the area.  Last year there were 133 new homes, the year before 106 and  the year before that, 131. This means that based on ten year  figures 838 new homes were constructed along the Sunshine Coast  including the incorporated villages of Sechelt and Gibsons.  Commercial and industrial construction during the year totaled $734,350 which was below the 1965 total of $1,078,800. Major  construction for 1966 in this category included West Sechelt Waterworks construction, stores and suites at Davis Bay, a motel unit,  Sunnycrest bakery, I & K Lumber, Twin Creeks; Sechelt Municipal Hall, a' laundromat, Sunnycrest Drive-in, funeral home addition, dental office in Gibsons and Canadian Forest Products  workshop at Port Mellon.  Total residential construction during the year was $1,506,118  an increase over the 1965 total of $1,049,200. Naturally the home  construction total for last year is the greatest ever recorded on  the Sunshine Coast.  July was the month with the greatest permit value for home  building. That morith's total was $207,500 involving 14 homes.  September came second with permits valued at $179,000 for 17  new homes. August was third with $160,600 for 12 homes. Heaviest  months for taking out home building permits extended from May  to September. _    . _,.  Selma Pk.  to check  A meeting on Tuesday night  of 'last; week:atSelma Park ended with the appointment of a  committee to look into the possibilities of Selma Park becoming an incorporated district.  The meeting, called by the  Selma Park Improvement district, was held in the Community Hall. Incorporation has been  considered in the past by the  Community association and tabled with the expectation that a  regional district would be the  answer to the problem.  The meeting Tuesday night  discussed the regional district  and numerous questions were  asked including queries as to  who appointed the present officials representing the regional  district and what authority they  had as being such. Mr. Norman  Watson, chairman of the regional committee and Eric Prittie  representing Area C of the Regional District, based on Wilson  Creek area, answered questions  and explained details.  Inquiries asked who appointed the directors, why they were  appointed, their function and  purposes and what would be the  cost to taxpayers. It was argued  by one man that the regional  district was put over on the  public in an undemocratic manner. Generally speaking the  meeting was not as much opposed to the regional district  idea as were the chief questioners.  BPWdinner  The February dinner meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Business  and Professional Women will be  held at the Malawhana Inn, 7  p.m., Feb.  7.

The federal minister of public works has recognized the definite need for a boat shelter at Sechelt in a letter addressed to Jack  Davis, member of parliament for Coast-Capilano constituency.  In his letter to Mr. Davis he wrote:  I wish to thank you for your letter of Jan. 13, with  which you enclosed a copy of a newspaper article describing the sinking of a tugboat with the loss of the lives of  five crew members near Sechelt. .,  It is possible that had the Sechelt boat harbor been  built in 1966 as originally planned, this tragedy might have  been prevented. There appears to be no way of definitely  determining whether this would have been the case, but it  is hoped that construction this summer will prevent such  occurrences in the future. ,  >.  Your interest in bringing this to my attention is appre  ciated. Yours very truly, George J. Mcllraith.  It should also be remembered that the harbor of refuge for  Sechelt was rated No. 1 by Norman D. Lea and Associates, a consulting engineering firm retained by the department of public works  i<  look into small craft harbor facilities.  As the minister stated there is ro way< of definitely determining  whether this tragedy could have been averted by a harbor of ref-  v��e in Sechelt. However it has added to the necessity for som<- form  rt_ refuge in open water areas such as the Sechelt coastline.  The growth was traced  It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about  !them. This appears to be one of the ideas prevalent in discussing  &he newly formed Sunshine Coast Regional District.  It is quite true that a good many people, in spite of all that has  been pushed about the regional district have hazy notions as to  how it will woik.  The Coast News can point to its story on the regional district  in the Jan. 12 edition which traced the growth of the movement  through its various meetings to show how it came into being and  also published in the same story a general summation of what a  regional district meant.  To some people this means nothing. They did not read it, therefore are in a good position to be critical because it is much easier  to be critical than correct.  This publication will await any criticism any reader would like  to offer. It is not assuming there will be no difficulties in getting  the regional district in action. It is hoping the public will give  the movement careful consideraton after absorbing all information  available.  COAST NEWS  19 MRS AGO  The newly formed Native Sisterhood in the Indian village is  planning a good time for March  27. They will be joined by  Church House, Squirrel Cove  and Saanich tribes.  Results of a survey indicated  that Sechelt favors incorporation  by a majority of 53 percent.  The executive of the Gibsons  Board of Trade has decided to  prepare  a  brief  on  the water  question and direct copies to  all organizations affected by this  plan.  Fred Feeney, telegraph maintenance man, last summer saved Fred Aalten, 16, from drowning. The ratepayers asked the  Royal Humane Society to recognize his bravery with an award.  William Youngson was named  president of the newly organized Sechelt Liberal Association.  ARTICLE 2  A Planning Study by Robert  Williams  and Associates  of Vancouver  There are many problems  that must be faced and questions answered in planning for  the future development of Gibsons Landing. In summary, a  list of these matters would include :  1. The question of replotting  awkwardly subdivided land in  order to make the community  more compact and efficient.  2. Shortage of large, easily  developed commercial sites  with access to usable water-  frontage.  3. The competition from the  commercial area up the hill,  outside the Village, which  threatens to overshadow the  older center, near, the harbor.  4. Lack of sufficient sheltered  and deep anchorage for small  boats and yachts, which is preventing the full realization of  the areas tourism potential.  5. Unsightly character of  most qf the existing development around the harbor which  could tend to discourage new  investment.  6. Awkward and hazardous  street and traffic arrangement,  particularly at the junction of  School Road and the Sechelt  Highway.  7. The question of Highway  re-routings in the region which  could effect the development  potential at   Gibsons   Landing.  8. Storm' drainage and the  construction of a sanitary  sewer.  Within the limited resources  available to a community the  size of Gibsons Landing, it is  obvious that the Village cannot tackle all of these questions  at once. Within the scope of  this report we shall attempt  to lay the ground work for  dealing with some of these  problems.  EXISTING ZONING  The existing zoning bylaw for  the village is fifteen years old.  With the substantial growth  that has taken place and changed c.-pdi ions since its enact-  mer.', several deficiencies have  becoi: .' apparent despite the  amer.-.T:::-its that have been  made.  The     lack    of     articulation  among the different types of  residential development is one  drawback. The separation of  high from lower density residential development is generally accepted as a means of preserving privacy and protecting  property values. The combined  business and residential zoning  districts is a similar type of  deficiency. While the intermixture of integration of some  forms of housing, such as apartments with shops may be desirable, the indiscriminate mixture of houses and commercial  uses is not. It leads to poor  environment for the houses and  discourages compact commercial development.  The amount of land zoned for  business is greatly in exces$ of  foreseeable requirements. This  can also discourage compact  development and lead to uncertainty on the part of homeowners in the commercially  zoned areas.  In addition, some of the present requirements, particularly  as they affect apartment and  commercial development, do  not permit the flexibility of design so often a part of new,  larger scale projects.  There are several other points  that could be made about the  existing bylaw, including the  way it is set out. The use of  legal descriptions rather than  a map or plan section to define  the zoning districts makes it  difficult to follow.  PROPOSED ZONING  For a community the size of  Gibsons Landing, zoning is one  of the most important planning  instruments . at its disposal. It  enables the community to exercise a fair degree of control  over the location, siting, and  character of new development  and can help in lessening some  of the unfortunate effects of  existing development.  A zoning bylaw and plan is  not, however, a general plan,  nor should it be a substitute  for cne. It should be a part of  a general plan and serve as  one of the main instruments  for implementing the plan.  The basic purpose of zoning  are outlined in the Municipal  Act as follows:  1. The promotion of health,  safety, convenience, and welfare of the public;  COPYRIGHl APPLIED FOR  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. A dead beat owes me $000.  I want to garnish his salary.  What do I do? How does it  work?  A. See a lawyer. I presume  you have exhausted every  other means of collecting this  debt. A summons will have to  be issued against the debtor.  Any attachable funds (for example, bank account, a debt,  etc.) may be garnished without the plaintiff (yourself) obtaining judgment against the  debtor, except wages or.salary.  You must obtain judgment before you can garnish his salary.  Assuming you obtain judgment, a garnishing order must  be issued against the garnishee  (the debtor's employer) out of  the court registry and served  upon the garnishee ��� all within seven days before payday.  The employer must then make  a little calculation. Let us as-  POINT  OF LAW  oif -xv [-^racticiny oLawyer  same the debtor is paid $400  per month ��� $200 on both the  first and fifteenth of each  month. The debtor, if he has  dependents (a wife or children)  is entitled to receive a minimum of $150 per month ��� in  this case, $75 per peyday. Subtracting $75 from $200, we are  left with $125 which, including  a stated amount by way of  costs, must be paid into court  by the garnishee who at the  same time must file a document in the court registry explaining why he is not paying  in the full $600.  A further application to the  court is necessary to obtain  payment out in favor of the  plaintiff. This procedure is not  automatic and must be gone  through on each payday. If the  garnishee does not comply, he  himself, upon a further application to the court, by the plaintiff, may be compelled to pay  the sum in question. Few employers will stand for this nonsense and it should be possible  for you to enter into an agreement with the debtor that the  employer is to deduct a certain  portion of his wages each payday and forward it to you.  2. The prevention of overcrowding of land, and the preservation of the amenities  peculiar to any zone;  3. The securing of adequate  light, air, and access.  For these purposes, the Act  permits a Council to divide a  municipality into . zones and  within these zones to establish  different regulations to:  1. Regulate the size, shape,  and siting of buildings and  structures within the zones;  2. Regulate the use of land,  buildings  and  structures;  3. Require the provision of  off-street parking and loading  spaces.  In addition to the purposes  outlined above, the Municipal  Act requires that in making  zoning regulations, the Council  shall  have  due regard to  the  following, considerations:  1. The value of the land and  the nature of itsV present and  prospective use and occupancy;  2. The character of each zone,  the character of the buildings  already erected, and the peculiar suitability of the zone for  particular uses;  3. The conservation of property values.  Thus, zoning should not only  be carefully related to existing  development and land use, but  should also be used as a positive tool in guiding the development of the municipality  through the changes that must  be made as it grows and ages.  In this sense, the purpose of  zoning are:  1. To protect most areas from  (Continued on Page 9)  N.   Richard  McKibbin  A   PERSONAL  INSURANCE   SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C.

He would be  glad to have the names of any  senior  citizens  interested.  A birthday tea was served in  honor of the 80th birthday of  President Harry Hill. The cake  which was made by Mrs. N.  Erickson was decorated with  21 lighted candles. Mrs. Ivy  Biggs sang a solo, Mr. C. Brook-  man recited an original poem  by Roily Reid, and community  singing was led by T. W. Mars-  tin.

GIBSONS  Last year's operations of the  Old Age Pensioners organization of Gibsons was featured  by a raffle which resulted in  the purchase of a piano with  which to provide entertainment  at its meetings every third  Monday of the month in the  Health Centre.  Besides that the organization  had a birthday party in March  at which the Kinettes arrived  with a birthday cake and helped with entertainment. A member, Mrs. Daisy Crowhurst was  chosen Centennial Queen for  the July 1 Celebration and with  her entourage was entertained  at a tea after the parade and  ceremonial events.  In July organization members participated in a jaunt to  Bellingham and later joined the  Sechelt organization for a trip  through the Olympic peninsula  country and later at the Golden years day at the PNE.  Mr. William Haley was delegate to the Vancouver convention of the organization and  was named first vice-president  of the provincial organization.  Later he was delegate at the  national organization convention in Saskatoon.  There were two North Shore  regional meetings during the  year. The first this year will  be held with the Sechelt unit  being host sometime in April.  The first public tea was held  in November and gratifying  support was given this event,  funds from which went to purchasing chairs for the hall.  A Christmas surprise was an  electric train donated by Vince  Prewer of Marine Men's Wear  which was raffled off to augment organization fund. The  Christmas dinner was well at- ,  tended. The caterers were the  Legion auxiliary of Gibsons  branch with transportation being taken care of by members  of the Chancellor's club, which <  has looked after this part of  the event for the last few years.  NEW PACK  A new Brownie pack is being  formed in Gibsons which will be  known as Gibsons 3rd pack  The leaders are Mrs. Eleanor  White and Mrs. Marilyn Ranni-  ger and the pack will meet in  the Anglican church hall on Friday nights at 6:30 p.m. starting  on Feb. 3.

Cyr is here from Tex-  ada Island, the guest of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Al Phare,  while her young son is undergoing treatment in hospital.  Not only the Sunshine Coast  enjoys abundant rain. Wilma  Deane, former Elphinstone student, writes from Melbourne,  where she is working in the  Brookes-Gillespie Hospital, that  the field was awash when the  Qantas landed. Since then,  though, the temperature has  fluctuated and, she writes, it  can go from 102 to 75 degrees in  an hour.  Mr. J. C. Bell, school librarian  will be the speaker at the .Roberts Creek School Parents' Auxiliary meeting February 6. A  cordial invitation is extended to  any interested in the school library and its importance. Mr.  Bell will illustrate his talk with  film.   .  A letter was received by rural mail delivery which came  from a mail order house. It had  gone through a collection point  to a Winnipeg post office, and  the Vancouver main post office.  From there it was passed to  Gibsons, sorted, and sent out  by rural delivery to Roberts  Creek. The letter contained folding money and valuable refund  checks. What is unusual about  it is the envelope was open. It  had not been sealed, and a $2  bill was practically falling out.  Yet it was delivered intact.

HELTTACK FDLM  ' The Helitack, a new way to  bring forest fires under control,  plus other aspects on the care  of natural resources, will be  shown in Coastal Forest, a film  on OBC-TV's This Land of Ours  Saturday, Feb. 4 at 4 p.m.  By Hon. Mrs. ISABEL DAWSON  It has been an exciting and interesting experience this first ,  week of the 28th session of the  Legislative Assembly. The opening ceremony was a memorable  occasion with a Royal Westminster regiment guard of honor  greeting the lieutenant-governor  and the ancient Hyack Battery  firing a 15 gun anvil-gunpowder  salute.  Members of the legislative  assembly were seated at one  end of Queen's Park Arena on  a red-carpeted foot high dias  with overhead heaters supplying  warmth. The floor of the house  behind the dias was filled to  capacity along with the bleachers on /both sides of the arena.  It was estimated that over 4,000  witnessed the ceremony.  Mr. W. Murray, MLA, Prince  Rupert, was chosen speaker and  Mr. H. Bruch. MLA, Esquimau,  deputy speaker. The lieutenant-  governor delivered a 45-minute  throne speech without a falter  and highlights of the Centennial  year were mentioned along with  the various legislation which  will be brought down in the legislature, such as the Homeowners First Time Grant, and  new department of travel and  industry, a cultural grant, air  pollution legislation, changes to  the .Pubic Schools Act, an expanded housing program follow income groups legislation  on house to house selling and  fair disclosure of credit, to mention a few.  Before leaving this, I feel that  those who were responsible for  the transformation of the arena  should be commended. It must  have entailed many hours of  planning and work. They did an  outstanding job.  Wednesday, back at Victoria,  the moving and seconding of the  =   W.G.Kennedy  William George Kennedy died  Dec. 6 at Morden, Manitoba, at  the age of 95. Mrs. A. G. Stew  of Gibsons is a niece. He was  born Nov. 13, 1871 at Carman,  Manitoba, son of Mr. and Mrs.  William Kennedy who had moved west from Napanee, Ontario  the year before. He was the first  white child born in the Boyne  settlement of Carman district.  ���In 1895 he .moved to Elm  Creek, Manitoba and farmed  there 55 years prior to retiring  to Carman in 1950. In 1914 he  married Eva Jane Wallace of  Ottawa. Mrs. Kennedy predeceased him in 1957. Mr. Kennedy was a life member of the  Loyal Orange Order.  Mrs. Stew, a niece, is the  daughter of the late Dr. M. S.  Kennedy. Two sons are left by  Mr. W. G. Kennedy, Wallace of  Toronto and George, Elm Creek.  A daughter, Margaret, is Mrs.  N. S. Glanfield of Ottawa. There  are three, grandcnlldren. Two  brothers and a sister pre-deceas-  ed Mr. Kennedy.  Throne Speech were done by  Herb Capozzi and Dr. McDalr-  mid. They did an outstanding  job in their maiden speeches. I  can onlv hope I will do as well  when my turn comes up.  On Wednesday night all M'LAs  and wives and husbands along  with many notables attended  the state ball at Government  House. I was intrigued by- the  large statue-like decorations  made of ice and various types  of decorations and maps made  from gingerbread and types of  icing. These along with the  lovely luncheon were the work  of the Vocational school at Na-  naimo. Gowns of the women  were lovely in their profusion  and the men in their formal attire looked regal indeed. It was  a wonderful occasion in the  lovely setting of government  house. I was proud to attend as  the member of you people in  Mackenzie riding. Thank you  for giving me the opportunity.  Thursday, the leader of the  opposition, Mr. R. Strachan,  NDP,, followed by the leader of  the Liberal party, Mr.'R. Per-  rault spoke in the debate of the  Throne Speech. A motion of  non-confidence moved by the  opposition, was defeated. The  new income tax agreement with  the federal government was  passed after much debate. I did  enjoy the keen thrust of debate.  On Friday the Throne Speech  debate continued with the attorney general speaking' followed  by Tom Berger, NDP, Pat Mc-  Geer of the Liberals, Frank Cal-  der the native Indian NDP from  Atlin and the start of the speech  by Cyril Shelford, Social Credit.  The Throne Speech debate will  continue until Friday, Feb. 5,  when the budget is expected.  My maiden speech will follow  shortly  after.  A  LETTER  TO  THE   PUBLIC  This letter is to bring to your  attention a few facts about the  Gibsons Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital.  Since its inception, the auxiliary played an active and meaningful role in helping the community obtain a hospital. However, as of February of last  year, the auxiliary has been inactive. A lack of interest and a  decline of active members made  it impossible to carry out its  functions. Affiliations and obligations ; to the hospital were  nevertheless kept up even  though monthly meetings were  not held.  The other communities, from  Port Mellon to Pender Harbour  seem to find enough interested  people to keep their auxiliaries  doing their beneficial work and  those remaining in this organization wish it to resume an active and useful role as a hospital auxiliary, but we need public membership and willing participation to be able to do so.  The life of this group depends  on this public interest and in  the event this is not forthcoming, the executive will have no  other alternative than to legally  disband the auxiliary.  This is your chance to help  us and the hospital. A general  meeting is called for Thursday,  Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. in the Health  Centre, Gibsons. Please attend  and help us decide our future.  For those unable to attend but  interested, please phone 880-  7750 or 886-2514 for further information.  ���Executive, Gloria Fyles,  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary.  Auxiliary has good year  Pender Harbour's Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital met on Jan.  25 for luncheon at the Pender  Harbour Hotel. Guests were  Mrs. W. H. Cotton, regional representative for the Lower Mainland Auxiliaries division of B.C.  H.A. and Mrs. J. Berridge, both  members of Grace Hospital  Auxiliary, Vancouver.  Following the luncheon the annual meeting was held at the  home of Mrs. O. Sladey. Reports  of standing committees and executive members were read,  which showed a successful and  rewarding year. The spring tea  and Christmas bazaar, were the  fund-raising events, both of  which were a credit to the efforts of all members.  Mrs. B. Warden as head of  the nominations committee took  over the meeting and election  of officers followed. Mrs. B.  Warden is past president (resi  dent). Mrs. W. H. Cotton installed the new executive consisting of Mrs. D. Philp, president; Mrs S. McDonell, first  vice president; Mrs. W. Mc-  Naughton, second vice president  Mrs. G. Gooldrup, secretary;  Mrs. O. Sladey, treasurer, and  Mrs. R. Course, publicity  Mrs T. Duncan gave a sincere  vote of thanks to the retiring  executive for their work during  the past year and wished the incoming officers every success.  Mrs. T. Scales thanked Mrs.  Cotton for coming from Vancouver on a visit and for conducting  the installation of officers. Mrs.  Warden proposed a hearty vote  of thanks to Mrs. Sladey for her  kindness in offering her home  for the meeting. The meeting  adjurned, delicious refreshments  were served by the hostess.  The next meeting will be held  on Feb. 8 at 2 p.m., Madeira  Park Medical Clinic.

To be able to  look forwards  and backwards at    the    same  time   is   an   ability   not   given  to many, and here is a house  that manages  to  do just that.  Basically the house is designed  for  a  rear view  lot;  but the1  living room is located in such  a   manner  that  view  windows  front and back take advantage  of   the   view  both   ways.   The  siting of the house on the property is excellent in that there  is plenty of space left for lawns  and gardens, which can foe attractively    landscaped    around [  the house.  The entry hall opens into the  large living room, with outside  wall fireplace. The dining room  has sliding doors to lead to the  sundeck, while the kitchen too  has an opening to the deck thus  making outdoor entertaining  easy and efficent. The kitchen  features plenty of cupboard  space, and a family eating area  under the window.  The centre hall provides the  pivot around which is grouped  the bedrooms and bathroom  and stairwell to the basement,  which features an open wall.  The three bedrooms have large  closets, while the master bedroom clothes closet has a built-  in vanity, and plumbing "en  suite" is another convenience  of this room.  The basement area provides  for a recreation room, and since  the house has full depth at the  back a patio area could be planed right outside the recreation  floom.

EGGS: Egg prices have completed their seasonal downward  adjustment and a stronger undertone to the market is now  expected.  POULTRY MEAT. Volume of  production has expanded and  prices of broiler chicken and  turkeys have declined. These  lower prices are expected to  continue.  PORK: Marketings of pork  are heavier and prices are  slightly lower.  [BEEF: Supplies of beef have  ���been decreasing and prices are  expected to remain firm or  higher.  POTATOES: Abundant supplies have held prices below  those of a year earlier and the  seasonal rise may be slower  than last year.  CARROTS: Heavy supplies  are reported in Ontario and  prices below those of last year  are exected to continue.  TIDEWATER MEETING  After a year's rest, the Tidewater Players are hoping to find  enough interested people in the  drama club to begin work on a  new show. This includes those  who find pleasure in directing,  staging, scenery, make-up, etc.,  as well as those who like to kick  up their heels on the stage.  Many folks ask why the Players are not putting on shows and  the plain fact is they ran out of  people. So rally round all you  housewives and hubbies and  single folk too, and we'll see  what we can do. Meeting date,  Feb. 5, 8 p.m., Roberts Creek  Hall.

For several  years he was employed by the  C.P.R. as assistant purser on  boats running as far north as  Alaska and as far south as  Seattle.  Initially he had planned to  become an architect, and  studied towards a degree until  the depression ' years radically  altered his plans.  Then for many years he operated a real estate office in  West Vancouver, and established a branch office in Gibsons.  \Deciding seven years ago to  establish his home on the  Sunshine Coast, he moved to  Gibsons and closed his West  Vancouver office.  The development of the area  has been his main business objective. He is an active member of ARDA, an organization  dedicated to encouraging new  businesses to locate in the area,  the improvement of local services and the promotion of the  district as a tourist area.  Partially realizing his early  interest in an architectural  career, he has designed several  local: homes,;-and-jrecently, ._de-,  signed the new dental office,  located at Sunnycrest Plaza.  Mr. English is a member of  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Ltd., a business interest begun  in 1961.  A leisure time interest is  horse racing.

There is no way  this is more graphically shown,  than in a comparison between  the 1965 and 1966 telephone directories, says B.C. Tel News.  The 1965 directory had a press  run of 26,400 volumes, each containing 48 white and 160 yellow  pages. This dictated publication  of a total of 5,491,200 pages. The  directory for W66 has a run of  34,700 volumes, each containing  64 white arid 192 yellow pages  for a total of 8,883,200 pages.  .The increase in total pages run  was 61.8 percent over the 1965  figure.  Breaking down these figures  further, the number of white  pages increased from 1,267,200  to 2,220.800 or 75.4% The number of yellow pages increased  from 4,224,000 to 6,662,400 or  57.7%.  The dimensions of this growth  can be appreciated when it is  realized that the average annual growth in number of pages  for a telephone directory as  forecast by Dominion Directories, is 3%.

Etiquette  By IOBERTA LEE  Q. When setting the dinner  table, is there any limit to the  number of knives and forks that  are distributed at each place?  . A.; There should be no more  than three forks and two knives  at any one plate. If more silver  is needed, it is brought in with  the course for which it is intended. The dessert spoon or fork  is brought to the table with the  dessert course.  Q. Is the expression "You're  welcome" still considered a fitting and proper response to  "Thank you"?  A. Yes. You're welcome, or  That's quite all right, are always in good taste.  Q. How should a mother introduce her son's fiancee to her  friends?  A. One good way is to say,  "This is Joan Mason, my daugh-  ter-in-ilaw-to-he," or "This is  Joan Mason, Dick _ fiancee."  Q. When writing a note to  decline an invitation' received in  the mail, should one make it  formal?  A. This depends altogether  upon the nature of the invitation  itself. If written formally (in  the third person) then the reply  is written in the same style. If  written informally, you reply in  the same vein.'  Q. Is the bride's family supposed to furnish transportation  for those wedding guests who  have no cars, from the church  to the reception?  A. No: only the transportation for the wedding party itself.  Q. Which-is proper to remove from the dinner table first  the serving dishes or the dinner  plates?  A. The dinner plates are removed first.  Q. How should a married woman have her personal stationery engraved ��� as Mrs. John  H��� Harris, or as Anne Harris?  "''A?: AnheTlarris is only for .a  very young girl, or for a professional woman who is known  by that name. Stationery to be  used for general purposes  should have the woman's full  married name ��� Mrs. John H.  Harris.  Q. When a small paper cup  of sauce is served on the dinner plate, what is the proper  way to.use it?  A Turn the cup over and use  your fork to empty it. Then put  the empty cup on the plate, to  one side out of the way.  Q. When a guest at a large  wedding reception is preparing  to leave, should he seek out the  principals of the wedding party  in order to say goodbye and  thank you?  A. At a large reception, this  is not necessary.  Q. When one is carrying a  tray in a cafeteria, is one supposed to ask permission of a  stranger to sit at his or her  table?  A.   This is not necessary.  Q. Is it proper ever to address the envelope of a letter to  a person without using one of  the titles Mr., Mrs., or Miss?  A.   Never.  7 COUNTRIES INTERESTED  Seven countries already have  indicated their interest in participating in the first Interna-  tonal Festival of Forestry during the 1967 Pacific National  Exhibition from Aug. 19 to Sept.  4. The 14-day event will showcase loggers' skills in three  one-hour shows daily, as they  compete in 11 categories for  prize money totalling $36,000.  POOR ATTENDANCE  Monday night's meeting to  discuss recommendations arising out of the Community Conference on Education, held in  Elphinstone Secondary school  library was poorly attended. As  a result the meeting was not  considered of sufficient value  to be any guide to those who  backed the community conference.

Planning problems  (Continued from Page 2)  encroachment by other uses  that would create an unsatisfactory environment for both  the existing and 'invading' land  use;  2. To direct new development  to areas that are either:  (a) in need of development  (including infilling) and can be  economically serviced, or  (b) in need of redevelopment because of the condition  of existing    development,    the  DEAR DORIS  advice from  Doris Clark  Spanking didn't help  love her for sure.  DEAR DORIS ��� My younger  sister is 14. She acts too much  grown up one minute and the  next she acts as if she were 12.  She wears a lot of eye make-up  that bothers me very much. We  are really ashamed to see her  walking around with her eyes  . painted black and her hair falling over her face. Mom and  Dad have sat and discussed this  with her, asking her why she  wears it, but she cannot give us  any definite answer; only that  she thinks she will look funny  if she doesn't wear it.  Would it help to throw all  her eye make-up away? We  have asked her that; she only  said that she would do something drastic if we did. My Dad  thought if he gave her a good  licking it would help. He did  and it only made things worse.  'She does not go out on dates,  and from my opinion she  doesn't want to. (Even if she  did my parents would not allow  it).  Sister Twenty-one  DEAR SISTER ��� Remember  when you were 14, how much  you wanted to be grown up? Or  did it happen that as the oldest  girl your mother was desperate  for you to become capable ���  and this in itself worked the  miracle?  Sometimes the next one  down is relieved far too much  of the need for becoming adult.  At 14, a girl is changing from  childhood to womanhood; her  excitement at being alive needs  outlets. Clamping down on her,  spanking her, is just plain frustrating.  I'd be willing to wager thac  Little Sister will forego the  black eyes once family decisions are shared with her and  she is challenged to carry part  of the load. And would father  frown on some boy-girl activities in groups?  DEAR DORIS ��� I've been  going out with a certain girl,  on and off, for four years. A  month ago I asked her to marry  me, which now I don't know  whether or not I should have,  because I'm not even sure I  love her. The reason for this is  because I think she has been  going out with other guys.  How can I find out whether  or not she loves me or even  likes me at all? If I was sure  she loved me I think I could  Lost  DEAR LOST ��� You mean  that if she has been going out  with other guys, you don't love  her, but if she hasn't, you do?  Better wait a while before  deciding anything. Better take  out some other girls. When in  doubt, don't!  DEAR DORIS ��� My mother [  and father are separated, but:  my mother still loves my fa-;  ther. Now if she could get a di- \  vorce she could perhaps be-;  come interested in someone i  else.  She wrote Dad a letter asking  about arrangements for one but 5  he didn't answer. Is there any-:  thing I could do? I'm 15, so it's j  not as if I could advise like a.  grownup could.  Jorj  DEAR JORJ ��� Well, if there  is   the   slightest   chance   that;  there is still some love on your'  father's  side, you might help,  find somebody Mom could talk  to, like a counsellor. An understanding   social   worker   can;  sometimes bring together two!  people who thought it was all j  over between them.  Failing all else, her best;  friend will be her lawyer. At;  that point she needs you most:  to be loyal and friendly.  Confidential   to   Confounded'  ��� Your self-appointed nurse-  housekeeper   is    getting   her;  greatest satisfaction from wait-;  ing on the one male avilable to ���  her  ���  her  Dad   and   yours/  Treats all the rest of you, including his frail wife, like dirt.  She is ruining the morale and  good will of a whole household.  She'll take some ousting, and  it will have to be a united effort.  Confer  as a  family and  have the eldest son deliver the  verdict, for all to hear. Then  follow through.  To Bottled Up ��� You simply  must unload. The delicate balance between sanity and emotional illness may be tipped in  the wrong direction by keeping  the lid on too tight. Such seething inside can create a stomach ulcer ��� one of the mildest  reactions. And it can warp your  whole outlook on life.  That is why a patient unburdens himself to a psychiatrist.  need  for  more  intensive  uses,  or both.  3. To direct development  away from areas that:  (a) are less economical to  service than other equally suitable areas;  (b) ought to ibe preserved in  their present use (if any) until  needed for their best ultimate  use instead of permitting uses  that would prejudice the feasibility of this ultimate use.  These purposes are implemented by the zoning map  which shows the present division of a municipality into  the zoning districts in which  the different by-law regulations  are in force and by the strategy  followed in amending it over  time.  The zoning map should be an  instrument for achieving the  goals set forth in the general  plan in carefully managed  stages. It is usually more successful when based on a carefully worked out development  plan. Otherwise either:  1. development tends to freeze  into the existing zoning pattern,  if the zoning control is at all  effective, regardless of its reasonableness, or  2. amendments are likely to  be made without reference tV  broader questions of community  goals   or   relationships  between uses.  To avoid these problems, zoning ought to be reviewed periodically and changed as needed, preferably in the context  of a general plan.  In developing zoning regulations and a zoning map for Gibsons Landing, we have tried  not only to recognize the existing character and pattern of  development but also to anticipate future growth and changing needs. Because of the present servicing problems and the  uncertainty about harbor improvements and other factors,  it is not possible, however, to  make finite proposals on all the  aspects that should foe included. This is particularly true in  the case of the zoning map.  We have, therefore, put forward a detailed zoning plan,  to cover the immediate situation and a more general longer  range plan. This second plan  should serve as a guide for  amendments which will be required as new proposals for development are made.  The suggested draft by-law is  broken down into 14 parts and  a plan section, which covers  the application of the zoning  districts and can be extended  to cover the application of other  regulations. We have included  a part on general regulations  under which regulations pertaining to the whole village are  covered. In this way we have  tried to avoid the repetitive-  ness that characterizes many  zoning bylaws. These general  regulations cover uses permitted or prohibited in all zones,  home occupations, off-street  parking and general siting regulations and exceptions among  other things.  (By LYNNE CARTER)  Q. How can I add an illusion  of fullness to a thin face with  my rouge?  A. You can establish more  breadth to your features by  rouging away from your nose,  iblending it back toward your  ears. And if you have prominent  cheekbones as thin faces usually do, place the rouge on them  so as to lessen their highlight.  Q. Please give some good  tips on powdering the face.  A. First, puff the powder on  very sparingly, then brush off  the excess. Never have your  powder look as though you had  dunked your face in the box. If  possible, work under a strong  light so that you can see what  you're doing. That way you'll  make certain to powder well up  into the hairline and1 down into  the area of the neck and ears.  No. high-water marks!  Q. How is the "hair-pulling"  type of scalp massage properly  done?  A. Grasp small portions of  hair firmly between thumb and  forefinger, and gradually lift the  hair, moving the scalp upward.  Don't jerk. Pull slowly and firmly. Ease up, let the scalp relax,  then repeat the pull. Over the  entire head this way.  Q. What is a good exercise to  help whittle down the hips?  A. Lie on your left side on  the floor, left arm straight tip  and under the head, your right  hand on the floor in front of you  for support. With your legs  straight and feet off the floor,  scissors-kick your legs rapidly  back and forth at least a dozen  times.  Q. How can I make up to  counteract a sloping forehead?  A. Usually a forehead starts  sloping about mid-point between  the upper eyebrow ridge and  hairline. Using this point as a  starting line, apply a highlighting foundation horizontally  across the forehead from temple  to temple. This will bring that  part "out."  Q. Is there any way at all to  fend off the graying of hair?  A. No scientific genius has  yet come up with a natural way  of reventing gray hair, or returning it to its original color.  Your only recourse is artificial  coloring or tinting ... or just  plain resignation. This last  sounds worse than it really is,  because there's nothing in the  least unbecoming afoout gray  hair, and it can in fact add  beauty to a woman ��� if she  cares for and dresses it properly.  Q. How can I remove the  rough spots from my elbows and  the backs of my heels?  A. Mix a tablespoon of salt  with two tablespoons of petroleum jelly, and rub this firmly  over the trouble spots. Repeat  this treatment two or three  times a week if the skin is especially rough ... once a week  if your trouble is rather mild.  Q. I'm not sure about my  body structure, that is, whether  I come in the "big-fooned" or  "small-boned" category. How  can I determine this?  A. One way is to measure  your wrist. If it's less than 6Y4.  inches around, you're small-  boned . .. more than 6}_ inches  you're big-boned.  EVER HAPPEN TO.

When it came to discussion on  area planning the chairman  said the municipal department  did not countenance selection of  a planner on an advisory basis  citing examples of districts having to pay out considerable sums  of money for reports which contained nothing not already  known. The department favored  a resident planner instead.  Local works, and services revealed that the chairman had  already had phone conversations  with Mrs. R. J.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  Pressure groups visiting Parliament Hill usually ask for  something. Often this something  is money ��� taxpayers money ���  to help out a failing industry or  prop up the economy of a region which could not possibly  survive in any other way.  The government does its foest  to resist these demands. But  when it finds itself dealing with  the fate of an entire community they can rarely be turned  down flat.  Take many of Canada's northern gold mining communities for  instance. Year alter year delegations pour into Ottawa asking  for help to keep the mines going.  Take the coal mining communities in the Maritmes. Hardly a  day goes by without a plaintive  voice being raised in the house  of commons on their behalf.  Coal mining and gold mining,  I am told, are two very different  occupations. But the problems  which many of Canada's gold  and coal mining communities  face are much the same. Wages,  everywhere, are going up. Equip  ment costs are also rising. The  price for their products, meanwhile, is either fixed or on the  decline. Caught in a cost-price  squeeze they have nowhere to  turn but to Ottawa itself.  When the Emergency Gold  Mining Assistance Act was first  passed in 1948 it was thought to  be a transitional measure. It  was designed merely to help out  some of our gold mining camps  until the miners could get other  jobs. Little did the government  Ottawa would be paying out the  equivalent of $1400 for each  miner working in our northern  gold fields.  True, the total number of gold  mines has dropped from more  than 80 to 39. True, the total  amount paid out each year by  Ottawa (now close to $15 million) has also passed its peak.  But phasing out has proved to  be a long and expensive process.  Nor is the end clearly in sight.  The coal mining problem in  Nova Scotia is more highly localized. But it now costs the federal taxpayer close to $22 million a year. This works out to  no less than $4,000 a year per  employee.  Ottawa faced with this staggering bill for Nova Scotia coal  has decided to act. In close cooperation with the government  of Nova Scotia it will soon be  setting up a Crown Corporation.  This    government-owned    company is  to acquire,  reorganize  and manage the coal mining interests   of  the  Dominion   Steel  and Coal Company Ltd. Simultaneously  it  will help  to promote  and finance the development of modern industry within  the context of a comprehensive  economic plan for the redevelopment of the Cape Breton economy.  Just how fast the coal mining  industry can be phased out is  not too clear. The consultant's  report says 15 years. Much, of  course, depends upon the success which the federal and provincial governments have in attracting   new   industry   to   the  Lake Cowichan.
