 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21 v  Number 11,, March 16, 1967.  7c per copy  186711.967  tMNNM-COXFEDEfWUi  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Davis Bay lease awaited  Whoop-up   Granthams bridge site at March 12  event at  Davis Bay  Things were really on the  jump at Simpkins Place up on  the top of the hill at Davis Bay  Road Saturday' when well over  500 guests responded to the Open  House invitation issued by  Squire Simpkins and his wife  Rosamund.  Guests started arriving in time  for breakfast and were issued  hot cakes by Marilyn, the eldest daughter of the house and a  bevy of assistants who^ served  breakfast, lunches, dozens of  doughnuts and gallons of coffee from 7 a.m. until after the  last guest had departed1 at 10  ' p.m.   ���  The big feature 7<>f the mornings was- the children's Easter  egg hunt, partidpated! in with  scramblings and gleeful shrieks  by over 165 youngsters, including , a goodly number of Cubs,  Brownies, Guides and Scouts.  The; younger ones held their  huht^n the security of the school  yard; complete with sitters marshalled by Mrs. Simpkins who  had little if any time to do any  sitting, while the older children  scrambled over hill and dale,  led. by their host, a genial Pied  Piper, in search of the 1600 odd  Easter eggs hidden in nooks  and crannies all over the  grounds.  The older folk, in a more sedate manner explored Simpkins  Place, the saw mill, the gravel  pit, orchard, swimiming pools,  thp. Centennial log cabin which  drpw* much-commeat-.-^complete-^  . ly lurnished even to a ^miniature  telephone. At the house the huge  living room was the scene of  continued activity, many 'viewing the Honda in' its bower of  evergreen��� admired and examined and were invited to take  along; samples of the -many  woods including yew. Others  congregated in complete sociability around the huge fireplace  enjoying their coffee and dough-7;  nuts, while the youngsters re- ���  turning from 'the hunt dug into  the hampers of apples-, oranges,  lollipops, ice cream chocolate  bars and boxes and boxes of  animal crackers and soft drinks.  The only one who. missed the  festivities was son Johnny who  returned a bit late to take part  in the fun, but nevertheless received a noisy welcome home  from a seven-month stint With  the RCAF at Camp Borden, Provost corps, now a full-fledged  AC1.  All in all, it was a whoop-up  happy-happening ' tip ��� - at Simpkins Place last Saturday  JULY 1 MEETING  A meeting of Gibsons Julyl  Celebration Committee will be  held Saturday, March 18 starting at 8 p.m. in the Kinsmen  clubhouse. This being the national Centennial Year, it is expected a bigger celebration than  ever will be organized.  To carry out an expanded  celebration it will require a  committee  of 25.  Kinsmen to expand  facilities at park  When the provincial minister  of lands and forests receives an  application for the Davis Bay  ���foreshore lease from W.J7: Anderson, it will be referred first  to the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board for consideration.  A letter to this effect was read  at last Thursday evening's meeting of the district board in Sechelt's Hospital: Cottage. 7Up;to  the time of writing the letter  the minister said he had received no. formal application.  . The board, also- received a  copy of a letter from Sechelt's  Chamber of Commerce to the  superintendent of lands asking  for guidance on the 'procedure  for obtaining land for recreational purposes. The board's ad-  2 Diirsaries  for scholars*  Representing the Roberts  7 Creek Parents' Auxiliary, Mrs.  Hod MacKerizie attended a  meeting last week at which the  Elphinstone Scholarship and  Bursary Fund was discussed at  length.  The fund makes, student loans  available for study at technical  and vocational schools as well  as at university. It has been of  use to several students in the  past. The loan is taken with the  understanding that it will be repaid when the student graduates.  The fund provides a $250 academic scholarship annually and  has loaned in the neighborhood  of $1700. Although yearly dona-,  tions of $175 are received more  is needed to raise and keep the  balance at the desired $1,000,  and anyone is welcome to contribute to it!  For further information contact Principal W. S. Potter at  the high school, Geoff Thatcher  or Mrs. J. Azyan, Gibsons, or  Mrs. Rod MacKenzie, Roberts  Creek.  Fair meeting  The March 13 meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair Committee was cancelled when so  few people turned out. Another  meeting will be called for March  20 so preparations can be made  for this year's Centennnial Fair.  Owing to previous August fair  dates conflicting with other events it has been decided to hold  the fair one week earlier, August 11 and 12.  The March 20 meeting will be  held at the Gordon Clarke home  on North Road starting at 8  ip.m. ,��fl  it  Mrs. A. Aitchison, worthy matron of Mt. Elphinstone chapter,  Order of the Eastern Star, Roberts Creek, announces that the  chapter will provide a $50 bursary which may be won by any  situdent graduating from Grade  12 at Elphinstone or Pender  Harbour Secondary schools in  June, 1967.  A committee of three, Mrs.  Rankin, Mrs. Mylroie and Mrs.  'Ramsey, swdll decide on the recipient after consulting with the  principal of each secondary  school. This committee will be  guided in making its choice by  considering the scholastic standing, character, attitudes toward  work and financial need of the  applicant.  The student may be planning  to attend any institution for  further education during 1967-68  not necessarily a university. Application forms will be available at each of the secondary  schools.  vice was that the chamber write  to have a reserve placed on the  required land until a local authority, in this case the regional  district board, can take control  of such eventualities.:--?  ���--  The district board: has riot yet  reached the point /where it is  able to operate in T^this area of  municipal affairs, present legislation, covering parks arid recreation areas are under process  of revision in the legislature.  An Egmont problem concerning the Community Club and. an  access to its property was placed before the, board in its correspondence. The school board's  refusal to grant a ten foot; strip  from its property is involved  along with p ;t?ri foot strip donated ; by 7 Jofin >D*unloprfi'The-  school board" arguiherit ,is- that  it has so little flat space'for the  school grounds that it would be  unthinkable to let ten feet go.  The regional board was unable  to help out and suggested that  Mr. Dunlop, Egmont director,  keep the regional board informed.  |Mr. Dunlop informed the  board that Egmont was taking  a most favorable look at joining the move for acquisition of  garbage dump ; sites and plans  are under consideration to see if  a site can be obtained for Egmont.  Director J. L. Wolverton reported on his discussions with  Mr. J. Juwanda, of the department of municipal affairs, on  the setting up of planning for  the regional board. This will in-  Mrs.M.I.Fyles  Margaret Isabel Fyles, of  Hopkins Landing, who died Mon  day, was born in 1888 at South-  port, England. She came to  Canada with her parents in 1905  and completed her education in  Victoria where her father was  minister of Church of Our Lord.  In 1921, after teaching school  in Victoria for 14 years, she was  married to Thomas Fyles. They  lived in Vancouver until after  Mr. Fyles' retirement and in  1951 came to live at Hopkins  Landing which had been their  summer home for many years.  :She was keenly interested in  the work of the United Church,  especially medical missions to  underprivileged countries, and  painting. Another of her interests was the study of wild flowers and shrubs of B.C., of which  she had acquired considerable  knowledge.  She passed1 away on March 13  at St. Mary's Hospital after a  long illness leaving her husband  three sons, ten grandchildren  and one brother.  The funeral service will be  held Friday at Gibsons United  Church starting at 1 p.m. with  Rev. W. M. Cameron officiating.  Burial will be made in Ocean  View Cemetery, Harvey Funeral  Home will be directors.  volve   considerable   map   work  but the maps and air. photos are  available in government departments 7 The job would be to correlate them with the operations  pin which the board will become  * involved. Mr!.  Juwanda proposed the hiring of a student plan-  '  ner during the summer to cor-  ' relate the maps into a workable  setup.'

It was pointed out that  .a building bylaw would not interfere   with   present   constructions. These would come under  bylaw   regulations   when   new  construction was added or the  building was renovated.  Mr. C. H. Woodward from the  department of municipal affairs  in Victoria informed the region-  el board that when it was ready  for thhe consideration of a garbage bylaw for a plebiscite, his  department would be able to  provide what is needed. He suggested' the board obtain copies  of garbage bylaws from other  district municipalities.  He explained that under the  bylaw, areas must be defined  and a decision must be made as  to whether all areas would proceed at the same time. Rates  would have to be determined  and tenders obtained. It was  moved that letters be sent to  the villages asking .them for  their opinion on being included  in a regional garbage collection plan.  PTA decides  Following a successful carnival last week, the PTA meeting on Tuesday, March 21 in  the library at Elphinstone Secondary school at 8 p.m. will  have the privilege of deciding  how best to allocate the money  raised. Suggestions so far received include Centennial projects, Scholarship fund, and improvement of acoustics in the  elementary school gym.  Also to be discussed are the  resolutions to be presented to  the annual PTA convention in  Vancouver at Easter. These include controversial topics such  as a driver attitude development  course for Grade X guidance to  combat the alarming accident  rate, progressive lowering for  beginning French language instruction with an ultimate goal  of starting the two national languages simultaneously, and a  request to amend the Public  School Act to delete the requirements on Bible reading in  schools. Lively discussion is expected.  A brief containing a five year  plan for improvement of Kinsmen Park was presented to Gibsons council at Tuesday night's  meeting and discussed with coun  cil by Jim Cramer of the Kinsmen club.  The plan includes a proper  cement block building for lava-  .tories, a larger hall which can  be obtained from Port Mellon's  unwanted buildings, a shower  pool for children in the centre  of .a play area, expansion of concession area and buildings,  along with other improvements  to be added* as finances permit.  Mr. Cramer explaned that the  Kinsmen would do some of the  financing. Some would be  through help from the village  and other funds could be raised in various directions.  Chairman Wes Hodgson hoped  that a cairn would be included  in park plans commemorating  the fact that Mrs. Dugald donated the park to public use. The  brief was left' for council to  consider.  Miss Adele de Lange, a member of Sechelt's municipal council was a visitor at the council  meeting and was invited to sit  next to chairman Wes- Hodgson.'  The   Regional  District  board  informed council that its part  of the district budget amounts  to $1552 which council passed  without question.  Mrs. R. Telford wrote she  was surprised at council's! reply  to her on drainage water from  the post office property, maintaining it was a post office problem. Council still' insists it is a  post office problem.  Volunteer Fire Services asked  that the Municipal beach and  floats be fixed up for annual  water sports events sponsored  by the firemen. Councillor Ken  Goddard, parks and beaches  chairman will check on the situation and report.  Hon. Phil Gaglardi, roads  minister, has proposed a conference with Gibsons officials  on the incorrect property lines  for the Corlett property on Gower Point road. Council has arranged a meeting in the last  week of March.  Council endorsed the action of  the Union of B.C. Municipalities  in its telegram to Premier Bennett to reconsider his action in  maintaining municipalites had  been abusing grant privileges.  The UBCM asked Premier Bennett to remove such a stigma  : from municipal council officials,  because it is untrue.

Of proud   lineage,   MacBardo  of Woodwynn 2nd, was sired by  Hechettier    3rd,    PNE    Grand  Champion. His grandpappy was  Don   Macs   Bardo   Lemere   10,  Chicago Grand Champ. He was  acquired   by   the   Chamberlins  from    the     Woodwynn     Stock  Farms as a yearling.  The owner accompanied the  white, or rather black hope,  over the ferry to Wonnock,  where, with a shipment of seven  other Fraser Valley cattle, they  will be trucked out to Kamloops for the big stock show  March 13 to 16.  The Chamberlins first became  interested in cattle raising in  1961 to encourage their daughter Linda in 4H Club activity,  by purchasing a steer and also  a hiefer, the latter still out in  the    pasture    and referred to  jokingly by the family as Mac's  boss cow.  Linda took on from there, and*  in 1964 her Angus steer placed  first in its class and fifth in:  the whole show. In the following year the cow repeated its  good performance at the Clover-  dale Fair.  Let all help!  Anything we can do to help  Sechelt will be done gladly,  Chairman Wes Hodgson said at  Tuesday night's council meeting  when Councillor Fred Feeney  presented a Calypso cafe meaL  counter check for payment.  It happened this way: Chairman William Swain was having  a meal there and Councillor Feeney was at another table with  a co-worker telephone man. He  spotted Chairman Swain across  the room and Chairman Swain  spotted him. As Chairman Swain  was leaving he jokingly approached Councillor Feeney and  asked whether he would not like  to help poor Sechelt. So in the  same spirit Councillor Feeney  said he most certainly would  and took the bill and paid it.  Tuesday night he presented it  to Gibsons Council. Chairman  Hodgson expressed pleasure at  being able to do something to  help Sechelt. 2    Coast News', March 1'6, 1967.  Phone 886-2622       P.O. Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.

A Vanier memorial  If there is a particular event by which one should remember  GovernorjGeneral and Madame Vanier it could be the formation in  April, 1965, of the Vanier Institute of the Family. Formation of  this institute was the outcome of the Canadian conference on the  family which the late governor-general had opened a little less  than a year earlier on the lawn of Rideau Hall.  At. that time not a great deal of attention was heaped upon it.  Its board of directors contained the names of important Canadians serving under the presidency of Dr. Wilder Penfield. Outside  the executive there are provincial representatives numbering more  than one hundred. Nine of them represent British Columbia.  ���There are six groups involved in this institute, the Anglican  Church of Canada, the Canadian Catholic Conference, the Jewish  Congress, Council of Churches, Presbyterian Church and the United  Church. The institute is financed by contributions from private  firms and individuals and a foundation.  A brochure issued some time ago detailing some aspects of the  institute offered the Vanier Institute as a Centennial project for all  Canada. It provides an opportunity to contribute to a cause that is  above partisan politics and sectional rivalries and at the same time  to pay tribute to a man and a woman, who for over 40 years here  and abroad, served Canada with distinction.  To bring family life to the fore as a Centennial project is the  most worthy Centennial project one can think of. Family life does  need some encouragment in these difficult times. The Vaniers regarded the family as the basic unit of our society. Upon its strength  and vitality the moral fibre of the nation depends.  Waterfront changes likely  In reproducing the efforts of a young cartoonist (see page 3)  to depict what he termed a momentous monumental survey -- that  of his view of the waterfront area of Gibsons at the federal wharf,  this young cartoonist was in agreement with the actual situation.  The welcome sign is there for all to see and one cannot help, on  reacting land, but bump into the liquor store. The young cartoonist  added a totem pole, apparently overcome by the thought of the  contents of the liquor store.  ���The young cartoonist, a newcomer to the area, did not know  of the Williamson report on town planning for Gibsons which without hesitation pleads for an improvement on the waterfront. This  report pays particular attention to the area from the School road  which runs in to the government wharf, 'around to Prowse road.  The report urges council to do something about that area. Council is not able to do very much about it for the next few years. It  is likely the area will be improved as requirements necessitate  changes, such as property changing hands for a specific project  like a hotel or probably an apartment block.  If council decided to raise funds through some government  authority it would require -quite a large amount because handling it  piecemeal would prove far too costly. It is possible that private  enterprise might step in and change the area section by section,  the one enterprise attracting another. Visions of an esplanade  circling the harbor are pleasant dreams but if no start is made on  acquiring the land in question the esplanade will never come to  realization. However there is one thought council might mull over  and that is an esplanade could be built by using reclaimed land  piled up through harbor dredging. Such land has been reclaimed  elsewhere.

Dr. H. F. Inglis  will  be the new health officer.  The Canadian Legion at Roberts Creek will stage a concert this Easter. The artists  will be mainly visitors to the  district.  A good omen for B.C. fishermen is the report from California that pilchards have appeared in vast numbers. The  fish first appear off the Mexican coast in the spring and to  the B.C. coast in July and Aug.

FIR  TREE TEA  Early seafarers often suffered from a vitamin C deficiency  and developed scurvey as a result. Jacques Cartier avoided  the disease by feeding a brew  made from leaves and the bark  of a fir tree to his crew during  their long voyage of discovery  to North America in 1534.  COPYRIGHT 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.  Readers have asked a variety  of questions concerning the sale  of a dwelling house and the signing of an interim agreement  prepared by a real estate salesman.  Firstly there is no such thing  under our law as an interim  agreement. Either there is a  contract or there is not a contract. There is no half-way step  or cooling off period. Secondly,  Do not sign any document dealing with anything as important  as the sale of land without legal  advice. Better still, if you are  the buyer, have the documents  drawn by your lawyer. He will  make a land registry search  first, check the state of the  title and advise you of the di-  9f  mensions of the lot as appear-  pearing in the land registry records and of the existence of  such things as a right of way'  for a power line or sewer or  the right of the municipality to  take a portion of the land for  a  lane  allowance.  If you decide to. use a lawyer  engaged by the real estate firm,  make sure you and not the real  estate firm are his clients.  Make sure you only are paying his fee. In this way he will  be obliged to advise you and  you only. Your interest and the  interest of the seller and the  interest of the real estate firm  are not the same and a lawyer  cannot act for more than one  party who have a conflict of  interest.  Generally the buyer pays the  lawyer's fees and land registry  fees, and the seller pays the  real estate commission. A wise  seller will consult his own lawyer. There is usually very little for the seller's lawyer to  do. He merely checks the documents as drawn by the buyer's  lawyer and the fee for this is  generally small.

Mrs. Isabel Dawson  It was my privilege to visit  Weyerhaeuser   Company   Holdings in Washington at Cenfralia,.  Washington. We visited the Forest Research centre. This is a  program on forest sciences and  under this is sail investigation,  the   physiological   investigation  that deal with the fundamental'  aspects   of   the   several   fields  of research at Centralia,  such;  as - the herbicidal   ; effects^   of  chemicals on brush and.tirnber  species and the development of  selective   systematic   chemicals  for dwarf mistletoe control and  as an animal repellent.  *     *     *  Also the forest genetics research includes extension and  consolidation of forest-tree, improvement activities and addition of new studies to further  production of high-quality seed  from both cone production  areas and seed orchards.  Under forest management,  there are regeneration studies,  which covers the problems encountered in obtaining, in the  shortest possible time, stands  of young trees in the numbers  sufficient to stock cut over  areas   adequatelv.  Also with silviculture which  studies, the features of pruning  practices aimed at producing  the best combination of quantity and quality of wood in the  company's young-growth forests.  Then there was forest management research, a combination of fundamental studies of  stand growth and yield, and  the development of operational  ���guides in stand improvement,  thinning and harvesting. Under  forest protection they reviewed  the forest disease research  which includes studies of relationship between the hosts of  ponderosa pine and Douglas  fir and their dwarf mistletoes.  Also, there was the wildlife,  the biological investigations  that concern the serious problems related to animal damage  to forests.  *       *       *  One other research that is  done here is entomological research directed toward reduction of losses caused by major  forest insects. These include  cone and cedar insects, the balsam wooly aphid, the Douglas  fir beetles and various other  insects. One thing that is quite  different in regard to Weyerhaeuser and MacMillan Bloedel  Limited or Canadian Forest  Products or Crown Zellerback  in British Columbia, is that  Weyerhaeuser land is all privately owned by the company.  In contrast, in British Columbia,  about 93% of the forest land is  controlled by the government.  One of the most interesting  pieces of equipment we viewed  in action was what they . call  Skagit equipment. This is a  large grapple yarder which runs  along a 650 foot cable down the  mountainside and gets hold of  a log-and brings it up the mountainside as. though it were a  toothpick. This is a very interesting operation, and we spent  sometime watching this piece  of equipment at work.  * ��� ���   .*       *  Sunday  morning,   we   visited  one of the yards at one of the  pulp mills and saw the different types of logs used for this  type of pulp. I could not help  but feel how much cleaner and  better organized the pulp and  paper mill yards are in our  area, for at the one pulp mill  visited, there was a tremendous  amount of mud and water all  over the place.  Our next stop was a visit to  a high yield Douglas fir area.  Most of this area had been logged off many years hence and  they are now experimenting  with ways of reforestation,  taking into regard the animals  and insects in the area. It was  quite enlightening to see the  amount of damage that had  been done by mountain beaver  and also bear and deer. There  were also several acres of land  that were planted with trees of  various ages: three weeks, one  year, two, three and even six  years. Some of the trees they  are using in experimenting with  the use of fertilizers, and others  they were experimenting with  the different methods of protection from animals. All in all,  it was a very interesting trip  indeed.  * *     *  As we flew back to Victoria,  I could not help but think how  many of the same problems,  especially in the field of reforestation, applies to both the  U.S. State of Washington and to  British Columbia. Each and  everyone of us in our riding  are concerned or should be concerned in that business which  is our prime industry in British Columbia ��� Forestry.

It is a question of  not ; only bringing in new development but "of organizing it  in a rational and attractive  manrier for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.  We are convinced that the  key to Gibsons' future lies in  developing its waterfront area.  The alternative of concentrating intensive development on  the hill could result in a quite  undistinguished c o m m u nity.  With the growth of leisure and  earlier retirement, the scenic  quality and general character  of communities will become an  increasingly important factor m  development.  First priority should therefore, we believe, be given to  waterfront development. This  would, as pointed out in this  report, involve a range of approaches which could include  federal assistance for harbor  improvements, urban renewal  and private enterprize.  Secondary priority should be  given to improving the School  Road - Sechelt Highway intersection including the proposed  diversion and parking and to  replotting which will help solidify development around the  centre of the village.  GOVERNMENT   ASSISTANCE  FOR URBAN RENEWAL  The availability of federal  and provincial assistance is a  key factor in urban renewal  planning. The federal government through C.M.H.C. and the  provincial government generally contribute 50% and 25% respectively towards the cost of  preparing and implementing  urban renewal schemes.  Based on Sections 23A and  23B of the National Housing  a,w_t which the provincial act  relates to, the municipality  may receive a combined contribution of 75% towards the  cost of the following items:  Preparation of an urban renewal Scheme including staff  salaries, consultant fees and  the undertaking of research and  special studies.  Implementing an urban renewal project including:  Cost of acquiring and clearing land and buildings including normal expenses attributable to the operation.  Consultants' fees, appraisers,  brokers,    engineers,    planners,  architects,   solicitors  and market research.  Cost of moving families and  small businesses.  Cost prising  from  the  aban-  donment or  removal  of murii-  ,\ cipal services and public utili-  .. ties. ;������:..       ;>  Property management costs'.'  Staff salaries including fringe  benefits.  Cost of construction, reconstruction or improvement of  municipal services or works,  other than public buildings in  accordance with the urban renewal scheme. This cost may  involve: Streets, overpasses and  underpasses, either vehicular or  pedestrian curbs, gutters and  sidewalks, traffic lights, street  name signs, street lighting, fire  and police and other communication systems.  Local water distribution systems are included also public  electricity and gas distribution  systems, sanitary sewers, storm  drains, culverts, local parks  and playgrounds including  walks,. lighting, furniture and  fencing, rough grading as required for disposal of Jand,  planting street trees and retaining walls when an essential part of streets.  It should be noted that these  items apply in both redevelopment and rehabilitation areas.  Some items such as rough  grading and retaining walls  have special significance for  Gibsons because of the steep  topography.  In addition, under the National Housing act, Section 23C,  C.M.H.C. may make loans to  municipalities or provinces  amounts up to % of their cost  in implementing a scheme.  These loans may be for a term  up to 15 years and must be secured by debentures issued by  the province or municipality.  Owners of residential properties in urban renewal areas can  obtain loans under Section 23D  from approved lenders or CM.  H.C. provided that their properties meet or will be rehabilitated to meet the requirements  of the scheme and the standards prescribed by C.M.H.C.  The senior governments would  also share in the recoveries  from the project including: Salvage value of buildings and  improvements, estimated rental  revenue from properties pending demolition and estimated recoveries from the sale, lease  or other disposition of land.  The senior government assistance for urban renewal offers  substantial advantages to municipalities.  The provisions rele-  vent to rehabilitation, for example, cover many items that  would otherwise come under  local improvements or out of  general revenue. This could also make it economical for the  village to service and have developed lands which might  otherwise remain vacant.  Indian Midden  T0PS0IL  PROMPT DELIVERY  5-Yard Loads  Out at . . .

The story of his predicament,  which appeared in the Coast  News, brought his Sechelt  family Ed. and Iris Kohuch and  their three children, on the run,  overjoyed at the recovery of  the missing sixth member of  /thev family.  It appears the dog was stolen  from the Kohuch home and was  seen earlier in West Sechelt  with a chain around his neck.  Later he turned up at Halfmoon  Bay and was given shelter by  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lyons who  put out a call for Len Wray  Gibsons SPCA inspector.  Timbo again found himself in  good hands when he met up  with Len who boarded him out  first at the Blossom Lane Kennels and then took him up to  the Hyltons, meantime seeking  the owners or a new home for  the stray. He had only just placed the dog with folks at Granthams when the Kohucks arrived to claim the. family pet.  When interviewed along with  the family, Timbo gave every  indication of his joy to be back  home again. At that moment  he was busily gnawing an oversized hambone. Both he and his  folks express gratitude and  thanks to the folk who looked  after him, especially to his  friend Len who came for him  at Halfmoon Bay in the middle  of the night.  "It was a great reunion when  Timbo came home," said Iris  Kohuch ... It was hard to say  who was most excited, Timbo,  Ed, or the kids."  Intrigued by the name Timbo  Mrs. Kohuch recited the following doggerel which they had  heard several times on a radio  program, the chant of a little  Indian boy: '  Nikki Nikki Timbo, oh so  rimbo, oomah goochi, ama  gama goochi.  Interpreted by the Indian lad  ��� "Fat dog, long name, no can  say."  Timbo is just a bit over a  year old and Dr. Hylton's  hunch as to his ancestry being  a cross between Elkhound and  German Shepherd was correct.  While loved by all the family,  Timbo is the constant compan-.*  ion of Shane aged four.

I turned off on to the  verge  to give it room,  but it interval, and he took my breath  turned off too, and to "my surprise ground to a stop.  The driver rolled his window  down and there was John Simeon. I expressed my pleasure at  seeing him again after a long  At the Sunshine Coast Business and Professional Women's  Club dinner meeting at Ole's  Cove Resort on Tuesday, March  7, the president and members  . learned from the provincial pres  ideht's newsletter that 1968 was  to be marked as Human Rights  Year in the National Federation.

Letters fo editor  Editor: As a resident of the  ���Gower Point Road for the past  lew years I wish to protest,  strongly, the indiscriminate  dumping of garbage along the  road and particularly at Gospel  Rock. For many years I have  enjoyed, as must countless  others, the view from there of  the Gulf, the islands and the  small boats fishing in the Gap  and in the proximity of Salmon  Rock.  Today I stopped by and with  feelings of disgust and a sickness of heart, I see the offal of  some unappreciative lovers of  nature scattered there ��� an old  fridge, cartons and cans, etc. ���  there must be about two truck-  loads.  Just what is wrong with the  people who would dump it  there? Are they in such financial straits trying to keep up  with the Joneses that they lack  the few cents necessary for its  removal or are they simply callous to the feelings of others  who appreciate such a beauty  spot?  : I am not, by any stretch of the  imagination, a wealthy man but  I would gladly pay, if I knew the  culprits, for the hire of a truck  and helper to gather up this  stuff and dump it where it belongs ��� on these people's front  lawns, that is if they have a  lawn which I very much doubt.  These characters have no regard for the beauties of nature  nor for anyone else who may  appreciate it and should be living in a sty where at least the  straw could be removed from  time to time by some considerate person to prevent them wallowing in their own filth  ���D. Cruickshank.  Cut this out for future  THE THREE ROLES OF THE REGIONAL iDISTRICT  1. Regional Institution ��� Primary role. To carry out any work or  service or impose such regulations as are necessary or beneficial  to citizens at large within the whole region or for two or more  member areas. Examples are:  Wholesale water to memlber areas  Wholesale sewage disposal (treatment plants)  Wholesale garbage disposal (disposal sites or plants)  Regional planning  Hospital capital financing  Ambulance services  Costs shared among participating members on some acceptable  formula.  2. Contractor��� for works or services for individual member municipalities who have the authority to enter into such contracts.  This applies to incorporated municipalities and improvement districts only. Examples are:  Building inspection for the municipalities  Engineering services  Planning services  Construct and/or maintain water works, sewer works, etc.  Central purchasing of equipment and supplies  Full costs borne by the contracting member.  3. Municipal Council ��� Act as such in a limited sense for small  areas in unorganized territory where there are too few people to  warrant local incorporation.  Retail water or sewer service or provide other local services  such as fire protection and charge for them by general taxation,  frontage tax and/ or user charge. Such can only be instituted by a  benefiting area vote or in some instances by petition.  Capt. H.

He seemed very happy about  it and in that car and at that  moment, he had a right to be,  for he had in mind to acquire a  place between Duncan and Victoria and there live the life of  Riley. I assured him that he  certainly would be missed by  the natives, and by everybody  with whom his manifold activities had brought him into contact. He had had his duty to do,  and did it; and while some times  he had had to lay down the law,  he had handled the curious situations as they arose with a def-  ' inite savoir faire.  My contact with him over the  years was in the matter of adoptions, as one of the many facets  of his Pooh-Bah activities concerned the placement of children in the homes of young resident couples for adoption by  them.  Somehow, I got a lot of these  applications, and in course of  preparing the documents for the  Court, I had the opportunity to  take a good look at the little  people, the subjects of these  adoptions, and at the prospective parents, and the combined  picture was highly satisfactory.  It is not generally known that  in another field of endeavour  John Simeon is an artist, but  his knowledge of what is beautiful and where to put it was  nowhere better shown than in  these placements, for he had an  uncanny knack of locating most  beautiful babies, particularly  girl babies, and placing them  with matching parents. Nature  herself couldn't have done it  better, that was the rub, she  hadn't done it at all.  He brought love and happiness  to many homes round Gibsons,  and in course of his work here,  was called on for a repeat performance, in one case up to a  "full house." Now that he has  left us, with colors flying, we  wish him the luck and happiness  he bestowed on many of us here  may follow him and his lady to  their Island home, with the fitting valedictory Si monumentum  requiris, circumspice.

What is a good, general-  purpose facial beauty mask or  pack I can prepare?  A. One heartily-recommended  one consists of white of egg  mixed with evaporated milk,  patted over face and throat  with cotton pads, left on until  thoroughly dry, then rinsed off  with warm water.  Q. How can I mix a special  lotion for treatment of actively  perspiring feet?  A. Mix three ounces of alcohol, two drams of tannic acid,  two drams of borax, two ounces  of good witch hazel, and six  ounces of double - strength  cologne, or your favorite toilet  water, and massage the feet  with this.  Q. Please comment on the  makeup of eyebrows.  A. A little policing and artful shaping is generally enough  for most people. Pluck out any  obviously wayward hairs. Then,  with an eyebrow brush, brush  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. Would it ibe proper for  me, the bridegroom-elect, to be  present at a shower that is being given for my financee?  A. Since these are usually  all-female parties, it would  hardly be appropriate for you  to attend. You may, if you wish  however, put in an appearance  towards the end of the party  to help your fiancee home with  her loot.  Q. May one pour gravy from  the gravy pitcher, or must one  always use a gravy ladle?  A. If there is a ladle in the  pitcher, by all means use it.  If, however, no ladle has been  provided, then it is quite proper to pour from the pitcher.  Q. Are the male attendants  at our wedding supposed to pay  for the rental of their, own  formal attire?  A. Yes.  Q. How does a father properly introduce his teen-aged  daughter to an older married  woman?  A. Mrs. Smith, this is my  daughter, Joan.  the brows upward* 'and; smooth  off the top line. If it's becoming  to your shape of brow, brush  the ends upward and outward  and, if necessary, darken them.  In general, use a pencil of their  normal color, or one just slightly darker.  Q. What is a good tummy-reducing exercise for a teen-aged  girl?  A. Lying flat on that tummy,  legs together, arms close to  the sides, bend the legs back  and up towards the buttocks,  circling your ankles with your  hands. Then raise your head  slightly, and rock back and  forth from shoulders to knees.  Strenuous, I agree ��� but very  good!  GOOD IDEA DROPPED  Citizens of Glenrothes, Scotland got a  soothing  lift when  two officials recently decided  to pipe sofe music into washrooms in the town's public centre ��� but it was short lived.  Ted Hewitt, editor of Mechanical Contracting & Plumbing, reports that a tape-recorder was  installed and the charge for  using the musical toilets was  raised from one penny to threepence. Then the performing  rights society got wind of it.  A body which protects composers and musicians from exploitation, the society advised town  council that playing taped music comes under the heading of  a public performance. It demanded a licence fee, and the  whole idea was scrapped.

PSYCHOTHERAPY   BILLED  An attentive and sympathetic  ear and sound advice have long  been an important part of the  service provided by the family  practitioner, the Medical Post  reminds us. However, although  he may spend lengthy periods  of time soothing someone's  troubled spirit, the general  medical practitioner, the old-  time family doctor, has not in  the past been able to charge  more than the standard office  consultation fee. Now the patient who takes his worries to.  the family physician is going  to have ta pay for the privilege,  in one province at least. The  revised fee schedule presented  to the Medical Society of Nova  Scotia lists a new item: psychotherapy,  $7.50.  DEAR DORIS  advice from  Doris Clark  For an emergency frouier hangar,  open a large magazine, Inter, wire  clothes hanger, dote.  Am I silly?  DEAR DORIS ��� Last night I  dreamed about my sister, who  15 years ago, took her life after  suffering with a breakdown for  over three years. She was telling me to try to get'her to the  hospital, that she needed help.  My husband just tells me I  worry too much, so I do not tell  him how I feel all the time. I  have tried spiritual reading and  prayer, but I guess I do not try  hard enough, as it always seems  to come back.  The village where we live  now has no knowledge of our  family's past. It has always hurt  to talk about my sister's death  as to me it was so unnecessary.  Or maybe down deep I am  ashamed.   I do not know.  My husband does not know I  am writing this; would probably say I am silly, but I must  do something.  Sleepless and Upset  DEAR SLEEPLESS ��� Nothing is more futile than to give a  worried person the brush-off.  There is a. good deal of good  sense to putting a problem  down on paper.  This long-time nightmare of  yours is a deep hurt which you  usually manage to confine to  your subconscious; but the  sleeplessness and the dreams  testify that it is still there and  ready to erupt at any moment.  Until you are helped to get it  out and look at it, I'm thinking  you'll have no real peace. A  counsellor or a trusted, under-,  standing friend, could help you  sort it all out, find what the  shame is about; and siphon off  all those pent-up feelings.  DEAR DORIS ��� My grandparents are nearing their 90's.  Can't see too,good any more,  but they vvould still like to be  useful in doing something  which would pass the time for  them.  I have tried ��� with some of  . my own ideas, but I am running out of them. I am sure you  have had this question come  your way before and can give  me some of your good ideas.  Flora  DEAR FLORA ��� If they can  get around at all, link them up  with the handiest' seniors' club.  They are sprouting all over  these days; your own church  may be thinking of starting  one.  And there are useful activi  ties to engage in at home. One  grandmother I know buys up  remnants; acquires old cotton  skirts at rummage sales for a  song. Then produces a pretty  apron and a pillow slip. She'll  buy an outworn baby dress and  pick out the smocking by hand.  Presto! It becomes a dish towel; or two bibs for the current  toddler.  Can Gramp cook? I'll send  you a copy of "George's Cheese  Bites" ��� with variations ��� if  he'd like to make up the tasty  spread George's canapes are  made from. Then he. could invite his favorite pal or grandson to drop in for a snack.  DEAR DORIS ��� Bob really  fell for me, but I just didn't enjoy being with him after a few  dates. Then three weeks ago I  met Jim. We really dig each  other and we've been going out  ever since.  Every time Bob phones me I  either tell him I'm sick or babysitting. So far he has believed me, but I know it won't  last. I really like Bob, and I  don't want to hurt him by telling him about Jim, but I know  he'll have to find out somehow.  How can I tell him so he  won't be too hurt and so that  we'll still be friends?  Desperate  DEAR DESPERATE ���  Here's your chance to show you  are really grown up. You are  unkind to tell Bob anything  less than the truth.  Explain that you value his  friendship; that he is a fine  person and the right girl is  bound to come along for him,  but that you don't want to  waste his time in thinking that  he has a chance with you.  He'll be hurt, but he'll get  over it ��� bravely!  Confidential to Imposed On  ��� Better call a halt before you  blow your top. Your neighbors  are showing the thoughtlessness which sometimes goes  with extreme youth; and need a  little coaching in how to carry  their own weight.  Suggest you use cars turn  about: theirs one week, yours  the next. Decide how often you  are willing to baby-sit and warn  them not to count on you as a  regular. No one likes to be  used.  fashion  news  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN QAgASA.  BY NANCY  GAYL0RD  Leather leads a glamorous  night-life. No longer restricted  to the casual, suedes and leathers burst forth with beautiful  surprises: Birthday-pink suede  curved into a skimmy shape,  all bedazzled at neck and hem  with silvery sequin frosting:  Buttery-soft lavender suede in  a romantic sweep of evening  skirt, it's glamorous partner ���  a man-tailored shirt of delphinium satin: Silvery kid, as supple as silk, shaped to a sliver.  Anything wool, cotton or silk  can do, leather is doing. The  clever seamstress can buy  skins and sew her own leather  fashions.  Co-ordinates are in; separates  are out. So, increase your wardrobe in pairs that do wonderful things for each other. Sewing slacks? Buy fabric for a  team-mate jacket, at the same  time. A new skirt on your shopping list? Choose a co-ordinate  sweater in the same store.  Saves time and mistakes!  To press darts smoothly,  first press the fold to the tip  of the dart by holding as you  would for stitching. Open up  the fabric and pull slightly as  you press the dart in the correct direction. Horizontal darts  are usually pressed towards  the waistline and vertical darts  are pressed toward the centre  front or back.  Total cost of accessories  should equal the cost of your  ensemble. Cheaper accessories  will detract. So, if your suit  cost $50, the total cost of shoes,  handbag, hat and gloves, to coordinate should be about $50.  This is a good reminder when  you choose between a suit that  co-ordinates with present accessories and one that requires  new ones.  Just for fun are the mad mod  fakes.

Arthur Laing, minister  of Indian affairs and northern  development, called on the Indians of Canada to assume control of their own destiny by  managing as much of their own  business as they possibly can."  Speaking to the convention of  the Native Brotherhood of B.C.  in Vancouver, Mr. Laing said  amendments to the Indian Act  will include provisions under  which reserve communities  wishing to take the step will  be able to have a greater degree of self government.  "This," said Mr. Laing, "will  provide the training ground in  which Indian leaders will find  self realization and explore? their  own capabilities. With this self  realization will come an awareness of the possibilities for  good which will provide the lift  for the Indian .people in their  struggle for parity."  The exact amendments to be  introduced will be decided after  the meeting of the Indian Advisory Council in April.  _v_r. Laing noted that the Indian population is rising at such  a rate that the present reserves  are reaching the point where  they cannot support the population. He urged the Indian people themselves to develop the  resources of the reserves to generate the maximum possible employment and income. Such development would also provide a  practical training ground for  the Indian people in the arts' of  management, administration and  operation of business and land  development.  The minister said, "We know  the reserves will have to continue to be centres of Indian  community life for many years  to come, but reserve communities will not be the only place  Indians live. There will be an  acceleration of the movement  off the reserve of those who no  longer wish to stay," he said,  ,'however, the reserves must  provide an essential time-cushion while Indian people make  their own decision as to the  kind of life they want to lead."  This book  about publicity  Effective publicity is an art.  How to get it is the theme of  a book written by experts, all  members of the Vancouver  Women's Press Club.  Published by the organization  to raise money for its scholarship fund, Publicity and How to  Get It outlines the ground rules  for approaching editors, radio  and TV news media. It covers  promotion, paid publicity, public speaking, films and all the  important aspects of a good  public relations program.  Organization and publicity-  minded individuals looking for  time and space will find the  booklet a valuable and instructive tool in informing the public about its projects and making headlines.

TOP LAST YEAR  Latest Christmas Seal returns  for B.C. indicate donations will  be up over last year but below  projected expenditures for 1967.  The last province-wide tally  from 46 Christmas Seal Committees shows the total of $335,-  127, up $5,596 over last year's  amount of $329,531.  As previous donors are responding to a recent reminder,  Christmas Seal dollars are still  being donated to the B.C. TB-  Christmas Seal Society, 906  West Broadway, Vancouver, or  to local committee chairman.  The 1965 Christmas Seal Campaign realized a total of $340,-  000 and officials were anticipating $360,000 to meet anticipated  programs.
