Roth accompanied drug  squad members on their visits  to suspected- places.  At one place eight school  aged boys were rounded up and  released., The narcotic reported  to have been in possession of-.  '   Trower was marijuana.  RCMP have been receiving  complaints and asra result the  Vancouver drug squad was called in to make a check. It is possible that further charges may  be laid.  Inquiry to  visit here  An inquiry into the problem  of small boat harbors on the  west coast has reached Gibsons.

Let'i get iix the swim  Montreal is celebrating Canada's Centennial with Expo.  Gibsons and area with Port  Mellon'will celebrate with two  fine projects, Brothers Park  and construction of a swimming  pool. Construction of the pool  will start shortly after the canvass which is set for May 12,  13, 15. The canvass will be a  success judging by the individual voluntary donations; received by mail. The minimum donation to date has been $5. The  maximum received to date is  $50.    ..  History is being made as a  result of Centenary. All donors  names will be entered in register to be placed in Gibsons  museum. A commemorative  plaque has been ordered to be  mounted at the pool site as  well. as one for the cairn at  Brothers Park.  Construction: Instant pool  construction methods could  complete the project in three  weeks, weather and money permitting which means a grand  opening July 1.  The pool with a filter system  and chlorinator can operate the  whole' swimming season on one  filling. With the great improvement, in Gibsons water supply,  water should be plentiful for  all users and the pool.  How much? Because tenders  have not been let to either of  ,the firms interested in constructing the pool specific  figures cannot be revealed.  Here are approximate figures;  $18,000 for a pool and changing  rooms and toilet with shower  facilities $4,000, and safety  fence $1,000. The committee  now has $14,500 and acknowledges with thanks donations  from Sechelt Motor Transport,  the Arts Council, Universal  Timber employees and Company and several other personal donations.  Convention  at Kelowna  Three members of Royal Canadian Legion branch 109 Gibsons will leave shortly for the  29th biennial convention of the  Pacific command at Kelowna  Sunday with Premier W. A. C.  Bennett performing the opening  ceremony.  John Wilson, president; Bob  Carruthersj welfare officer and  Ron Haig, past president will  represent the local Legion  branch. The convention closes  Wednesday with a banquet.  GOLDEN  WEDDING  Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Hauka  of' Gibsons celebrated their  golden wedding Sunday at the  horn�� of their son, Don Hauka  and his wife Margaret. It was  a family gathering with members of the family, chiefly in  Ontario, telephoning their con-  .���ii_ii_i._  w.uing the day.  A second floor to St. Mary's  Hospital has received tentative  approval; of health department  officials in Victoria, memibers  of the hospital expansion committee report, said J7 E. Parker,  chairman of the, committee.  Mr.: Parker was reporting on  the work of the expansion committee, to the annual meeting  of St. Mary's Hospital Society  Sunday in Sechelt's Legion hall.  Directors elected were Mr: E.  Booth, Mr. R. Jackson, Mr. G.  Hopkins and Mr. R. Norminton.  Following the annual meeting  directors met and. re-elected  Ernie Booth as chairman; Frank  West, vice-chairman; and Archie  Rutherford, treasurer. Com_nit-  tees.will be formed at a later  meeting.  Here  is  the  complete  report  of the expansion committee as.  read to the annual meeting:  In 1966 this committee prepared a brief outlining the need  for an extended care unit, in  conjunction with the present  Acute Care hospital.  Scbuts trip  First   Roberts   Creek   Scouts  took an active part in the Scout-  .ing in Action show at the PNE  on April 22.

FIRE IN HOME  Fire at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday night at the home of Iain  Stewart, Seaview Rd., Gibsons,  was apparently caused by a spill  on a cook stove resulting in fire  smouldering its way up a wall  and inside. Gibsons volunteer  firemen spent considerable time  in locating and extinguishing  the blaze.  ��� The brief  was  presented  to;  the-:minister of; health for his  approval  in principle.; The  research  branch   of   the  BGHIS  made^a survey of our>hospital  and the area: it serves, at which.  time it  became  apparent that  more .'acute ; care   accommodation was urgently needed.  > Scfine time! later the minister  granted approval in principle to  proceed with the planning of an  addition consisting of 13 acute  and 10 or more extended care  beds.v;  ItVis the opinion of this committee1 that a full second floor  should be  planned,   and   after  consuitihg with Officials in Victoria, this has/been tentatively  approved7 A full second floor  expansion, could, provide some  30-3577more beds.  At th^: present time preliminary studies are being made as to  ^ the best'v/ay to integrate acute  anil extended care patients under one roof 7  ThisX'committee, will proceed  . as quickly, as possible'. to.finalize  plans.for this urgently needed  expansion, but it should be un-  derstood^jthat many months of  plahndngj are ahead before tenders- can71>e called. 7  7���J.

During their first visit they were  regular visitors to the old Gibson "Memorial United Church "when  Rev. D. Donaldson was minister. They will return to the Netherlands \ on Sept. 6. .  Festival Sunday  If you have not been successful in getting tickets for the second annual Music Festival at  Elphinstone on Sunday do not  despair. The festival committee  of the Arts Council is making  every effort to secure the return of tickets which will not  be used by parents of the children performing. Seats will only be held for ticket holders until 1:45 p.m. After that time all  seats will be filled on a first  come first served basis.  So no one need be disappointed and miss the concert because  of lack of space in the auditorium arrangements are being  made for an overflow audience  to hear the concert in an adjoining room in the school.  Owing to the necessity to  check the sound equipment with  the orchestra and choirs the  auditorium- will not be open to  the public before 1:15 p.m.  Doors will be closed at 2 p.m.  to allow the concert to start on  time. Performers only will use  the front entrance to the school,  the audience is asked to use the  rear doors to the auditorium.  Dave Robbins who will be  bringing his orchestra to the  Sunshine Coast for the first time  is one of Canada's most outstanding musicians. Originally  from Indiana he was formerly  with the Hollywood Bowl orches  tra, and spent six years with  the Harry James Band. He has  made his home in Vancouver  since 1950, is the musical director for the Canadian Broadcast-  , ing Corporation and is well  known for his radio and television appearances. Mr. Robbins  a tremendously busy person,  plays first trombone with th':  Vancouver Symphony, lectures  at UBC, as well as his own orchestral work and jazz workshops.  Local young bands have been  looking forward to the day when  they will open the program playing with the Dave Robbins band.  A short history of jazz will be  presented by Dave Robbins and  his band but the highlight of the  program will likely be the Duke  Ellington work Ain't But the  One. This is taken from Duke  Ellington Sacred Music In the  Beginning God which was first,  performed as part of the consecration service of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in 1965.  It was repeated later the same  year in the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York  and the following year before  the high altar in Coventry Cathedral in England. The success of  this highly individual conception  has been partly due to its accord with the rising tide of.  ecuminity.  The soloist in this work and  also the Lord's Prayer will be  young CBC singer Miles Ramsay. Originally from California,  Miles Ramsay has (been a member of the Roger Wagner Chorale.

Unity in the Community gets things done  'Theyliospitcd meeting  The annual meeting of St. Mary's Hospital Society revealed a  hospital organization which is a credit to the Sunshine Coast. Right  from the top to the bottom of the organization, internally as well  as externally St. Mary's Hospital and the people in it and those  [backing it, including the auxiliaries would be a credit to any community. ^ 7       ;.        ,  Its monetary value in the community is listed at $1,176,809 but  its actual value to the people of the area cannot be estimated in  dollars and cents.      .  Ralph Waldo Emerson described society as being a hospital of  incurables and as regards St. Mary's Hospital society members  they apparently are incurable in their support of the institution for  which they battled-sodefinitely during bygone days.  The need for Sit. Mary's Hospital was so well defined that the  Sechelt Indian band decided to donate reserve, land for its location. Its consftruction has left no doubt as to the community's need  for it. This need has become so pronounced there is an effort under  way to have the second floor added. This iwould double the size of  the hospital and would also allow for extended care operation,  something this area requires badly.  As the extension committee report outlines, a full second floor  expansion could provide 30 to 35 more beds. In a growing community now is the time that construction of the second floor should  , start. The need for increased bed space is evident in the increase  in occupancy from 80 percent in 1965 to just albove 95 percent today. Two years from now how will the hospital be able to cope  with increased requirements, if the needed space is not available? -  normal occupancy today is raited at 85 percent. Therefore the need  for expansion, is obvious.  f  Psychodelic homework!  Education has been described as that which discloses to the  wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.  Perhaps'those, who frown on homework might discover a grain of  truth in that description. They would most likely agree (but continue to rail against (homework.  Based upon written reports on homework as prepared by students themselves there is a lurking suspicion that while they would  like to be alble to get along without it they realize that it is a part  of school life and therefore must be tolerated. ..  True, today's attractions are such that homework cannot get  priority in the home except through compulsion. Before TV days  radio was the impediment and it was used extensively, producing  a noise that jangied the nerves of the pre-radio generation. Yet  tricky problems were apparently worked out, to allow the student a  passing mark. j  It is marvellous what the human ear can stand particularly if  you are young and possess a portable radio placed so obviously on  the field of homework operation. How in heaven's name one can  concentrate on any subject with today's longhaired specialists  warbling uncontrollably about nothing, is perhaps the origin of  what is now described as a psychedelic trip. As a result one can  have a spark of sympathy for the gangster who after shooting his  grandmother had to go home to listen to his Beethoven, Mozart  and Bach records. ,  Nevertheless, dear students, while you may have feeling's which  do not lean towards homework, it will most likely (be with us for a  while longer. What is needed is automated education giving students more time for leisure. Work on it, lads and lassies.  By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Success with roses needs no  unique formula. First - class  plants and proper planting are  the two most important require:  ments. Quality plants obtained  from reputable . nurseries, or  garden centers;, rather "'than bargain counters, give you a good  start on the road to success.  The following planting steps are  easy and routine but should.be  carried out to the letter/    . \  Roses are not fussy about  soil if it is reasonably fertile  and friable. They will grow in  sandy or clay soil. Sandy soils  need lots of added humus and  clay soils will benefit from added organic materials such as  straw or peat litter. Roses do  need a place in the sun, though,  and it is also best to avoid sites  that are near trees or large  shrubs where roots will deprive  the roses of much-needed nutrients.  Bushes should be planted as  soon as they are received. If  you must postpone planting a  day or so, keep them in the  package and store them in a  cool place. At time of planting,  unpack the bushes, put them  in a pail with enough water to  cover the roots and take them  to their planting beds.  Prepare the planting holes in  advance   so  that  the  soil  will  have settled. The hole should be  (about 18 inches wide and 12 to  15  inches deep.  To  enrich  the  soil, combine the earth removed with one quarter of its' bulk  . of peat moss, well-decayed  '* leaves, or well-rotted manure.  . Place several inches of the  loose prepared soil in the hole  to form a cone-shaped mound in  the center. Plant the bush on  the mound, spreading the roots  naturally down its slope. Be  sure to give the roots enough  ��� room,, and if need be, make the  hole bigger. Place the bush on  the mound so. that the bud  union (the knotlike swollen area  where the top growth or canes  originate) is about at ground  level. Cover the roots with soil,  working it around them so that  no air pockets remain. Fill the  hole to near ground level and  tamp down firmly. Then fill the  rest of the hole with water and  allow it to soak in.  After the water has drained,  finish filling in the hole with  your planting mixture and then  mound up around the canes to  a height of about eight inches.  Allow this protective mound to  remain until the top growth  starts. When shoots appear,  gradually remove the mound.  Roses are thirsty plants.  Plenty of moisture assures  even and steady growth, es-.  pecially during the hot summer  months. Water at least every  ten days if there isn't enough  rain to soak the soil to a depth  of at least ten inches. The best  way to water is to lay a shingle  or piece of wood at the nozzle  to break the force of the water  and allow the  stream to flow  POINT  OF LAW  e��y ~/t /-Practicing. oLawu,  COPYRi-Hl  APPLIED FOB  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will ber-answered in thir'  column.-''Letters must be"  brief,- signed and- your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  c/o  A common question asked by  a client of his lawyer concerning a law suit is what are my  chances? There are a lot of  answers but any of' them could  only be understood by having  a knowledge of the steps in a  law suit.  The first step is the issuing  of a summons out of the appropriate court registry. The  lawyer of the plaintiff, (the person suing) prepares this document and issues it and has it  served upon the defendant (the  person being sued). The defendant has eight days to go to his  lawyer and have another document filed indicating the claim  will be contested. If this is not  done,, the plaintiff may enter  a default judgment on the ninth  day���in, other words, the plaintiff has won by default.  Assuming the plaintiff does  hot obtain default judgment ���  the plaintiff then files a statement of claim. This sets out in  detail the facts upon which the  plaintiff will be relying to prove  his case and outlines the losses  the plaintiff has suffered and  specifies what the plaintiff is  claiming ��� usually a sum of  money. The defendant then files  a statement of defence which  must deny any facts in the  statement of claim which the  defendant wishes to force the  plaintiff to prove.  There : may be further docu-  er  ments but the next usual step  is that each side demands of;  the other a sworn affidavit of  Spjl^cuments; Each party must  ';tnen prepare a statement of all  letters, bills, documents or  writing in connection with the  ; case. Each ���. side may inspect  these and make copies. The  next usual step is that each  side demands to examine the  other side before trial. The  parties must attend at the court  , house and, after being sworn to  tell the truth, subject themselves to be cross-examined by  the other side's lawyer in the  presence of a court recorder,  who prepares a typewritten record of the questions and answers.    .-.'���'  At this stage, it will be almost always found that the  parties are much closer together than they were to begin  with. Each7 knows exactly what  the, other side's case is and  what documents the other side  can use and what the Other  party's evidence is going to be  at the trial. No document not  on the sworn statement may be  used and each side must give  testimony at the trial that is  only consistent with that given  oh his examination. Thus neither side can be taken by surprise. It is at this stage that  most cases are settled out of  court.  flf the differences cannot be  settled, the matter must go on  to7; trial which will be the subject of another article. The  parties are, however, well advised to compromise and settle  if at all possible because it is  still true that "no one wins a.  law suit"���'Considering the costs  involved and the wear and tear  oh the nervous system.

This wets the foliage  and" encourages disease.  Roses respond readily to regu-  ' lar feedings. The* simplest way  is to, use a packaged, 5-10-5  fertilizer and apply' one heaping teaspoon per plant on the  surface soil around the base  of the bush about six to eight  inches from the stem. Rake in  ��� lightly    and    follow    with    a  Nthorough watering to dissolve  the fertilizer. Apply the recommended fertilizer early in spring  about the time the new growth  is four inches long, again when  the bushes begin to flower, and  ��� once more in July after the  first big flowering period.  Spraying'or dusting should be  considered routine, done as a  preventative ��� measure  and  not  .when insects are present or disease has started. Once you de  velop���a- regular -schedule, the  challenge ,to keep' your roses in  excellent ,fprm' will prove highly gratifying. Use a commercially prepared all-purpose rose  spray or dust in the spring  when the first leaf buds start  to form. Continue on a weekly  to fortnightly basis. -During the  heat of summer, reduce the' frequency to every . ten days and  after every fain. .   ''  As soon as the buds start to  swell in the "spring, prune as  follows. Hybrid teas should be  cut back to four buds. The cut  should be just above a bud that  faces outwards. Remove any  weak or straggly shoots. Flori-  bundas should not be cut back  much farther "than the, dead  wood caused by" winter injury.  BE A POOL BOOSTER  N.

April 20,  27, "May 4,  11,- 1967- ���  of the level of the hospital payroll and accounts payable for  supplies raised the present borrowing limit of $20,000 to $40,-  000. This borrowing enables the  hospital administration to carry  on while awaiting, re-imburse-  ment from the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service.    ;.;  The   third  change ^increased *  the   spending  authority  of the '���  hospital administrator from $200  to $400. This has been done to  facilitate the obtaining of needed drugs when, necessary.  The annual meeting decided  on a motion 'by Mrs. Ada  Dawe that the annual meeting  could be held on a weekday  evening instead of on a Sunday.  Following the conclusion of  the special meeting the annual  meeting: received the following  reports from the president, administrator and other sections  of hospital and society- operations:-'-  President  It is with great pleasure I submit this report for the year 1966.  The year has been most successful. Despite difficulties, results  have been most gratifying, much  new . and expensive equipment  has been added to facilitate the  best possible care for 7 all bur  patients, staff has been maintained at standard level, and.our  financial position is greatly 'stabilized; '���'���'.  On behalf of the board of trustees and the members of this  society I take this opportunity  to. express thanks to all who  have helped to make 1966 the  success it has been, particularly our administrator, the director of nursing, the medical staff,  the hospital staff, the auxiliaries  the Hospital Improvement Dis-.  trict No/31, community groups,  local clubs, and residents who  have donated finances and time  so generously.    /  The following interesting statistics undoubtedly prove the  great need, and more than justify the existence of this hospital:        v  In 1965 the overall rate of  ;  occupancy was 80.1%.  in 1966 the occupancy rose  to 87.5%.  At the time of this report  it is in excess of 94.7%.  The normal occupancy level is  regarded as 85% ��� giving ample  proof of the great need for additional bed accommodation,  and while this subject is covered fully in Mr. J. E. Parker's  report, I would like to assure  you that the board of.. trustees  has taken every possible preliminary step to achieve this objective.  It is regretted that landscaping of the hospital grounds has  not ^progressed further, but in  view of anticipated expansion  plans, it is not considered wise  to proceed further until a decision is reached regarding location of the new expansion.  Another project nearing completion is a permanent Book of  Remembrance in which it is intended to record the names of  those who have contributed so  generously to the hospital, with  special attention to the many  memorial funds and bequests. It  is planned to have this book  suitably placed in the lobby of  the hospital.  The financial statements will  be of interest and I should like  to draw attention to the 68.7%  paid out for salaries and wages  ��� this figure is below the aver  age for hospitals in British Columbia.  In closing, may I add a personal expression of appreciation  and thanks for the support, cooperation and assistance of the  members of the society, .-the an&  board of trustees and the hospital staff, during the past year  ���of" my office as president of the  St. Mary's Hospital Society.  ���E. W. Booth,' President.  Regular monthly meetings  the Medical staff were held.  In addition to the' handling' of  routine business, a new set of  Medical Staff By-laws were  drawn up and adopted, with the  co-operation of the Board of  Trustees.  We feel that a high level of  co-operation has existed between ourselves and the Board  of Trustees, the administration,  and the nursing staff, and wish  to express our appreciation in  this regard to all concerned.  ���J. D. Hobson, M.D.| chair-  AuxMaries  Reports have, been received  from the following auxiliaries:  Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour,  Port Mellon, Roberts Creek and  Sechelt.7 ;.;':V':.7-777;7-7:-7;-:<'t'.  These reports all show a busy  year has been'.;���; completed by  each auxiliary since7 the last  annual meeting of the Hospital  society, and much success has  attended the efforts ;amd projects  undertaken. The hospital has  been greatly helped financially  by the donations of expensive  valuable   equipment   pur  chased by these auxiliaries^ - ~ -  The very sincere 'thanks of the  Hospital society is due to every  officer   and  member   of  these  auxiliaries and this opportunity  is taken to publicly express our  appreciation and to extend our  best wishes for success in all  phases of their work in the year  we have entered.  ���E.

The quarter guard under the  ; command of Lt. John Ayris in  7 taking first place in a feu de  ��� -. joie and  drill competition carried off the Eric Hamberg Cup  and one other trophy.  All, the pomp and panoply of  an all-out military tattoo was  , staged for two nights before  large audiences. The massed  pipes and drums of. the Seaforth regiment and cadets augmented by the band of the  Royal Westminster Regiment  added color and martial circumstances to the impressive  swing of the march past. A  three-round salute was fired in  honor, of Prince Philip. Colonel  D. Anderson, O.C., of the Canadian Seaforth regiment, took :  the salute. Organizer of the display was Major A. :G. Balyis.  The Quarter Guard of Company B marched off the field  in triumph headed by their own  piper T. McHardy.  Lt. Ayris and the following  members of Gibsons Seaforth  contingent took part in the display: Sgt. M. Parson, Cpl. R.  Wray; L.C., S. Maklam; L.C.,  G. Wood; W. John, W. S. Skinner, M. Henry, J.

St. George tea  Members of St. Aidan's (Roberts Creek) Anglican Church  Women (A.C.W.) held a successful St. George's Day tea in the  Parish Hall on Friday, April 21.  The president, Mrs. A.. M.  Harper, welcomed the guests  who were each presented with  a red rose corsage. Rev. J. H.  Kelly introduced Mrs. F. A.  Jones, past president of St.  Bartholomew's A.C.W., Gibsons,  who opened the affair.  The tea tables were tastefully  centred with St. George Flags  and red roses, the work of Mrs.  R. Cumming. There was a stall  of home canning, cards and  plants and the proceeds were  divided between the Eastenders  Society in Vancouver and work  among   coast   Indians.  A  typical pub at  Expo   67  will be The British Bulldog. It  will be run by three teams of  husband-wife pub keepers, serving  typical  British  fare.  Regional district will  seek control of water  Sunshine Coast Regional District directors will seek a  change in Letters Patent so that  water can be included in their  operations.  This was agreed to at last  Friday night's meeting of the  board in its Davis Bay office.  After commenting on the recently issued Bullock report by the  water rights branch, which covers West Howe Sound area,  members of the board agreed it  would ibe best now for the board  to bring water problems within  its jurisdiction.,.  The Bullock report is of the  opinion that the district as far  as Roberts Creek could develop  its water systems into an area  water board; The directors at  the same time saw fit to seek  the preservation of Chapman"  Creek watershed for area domestic use.  ���Sechelt gaifnage dump on  Crown land is now brushed out.  Pender Harbour dump is awaiting surveyors.- The Gibsons  dump became a matter of mixed up maps resulting in the  board deciding to get the lines  correct on one map.  Director John Dunlop of Pender Harbour area said he had  figured out costs of garbage collection could be around 45 cents  per week. Chairman Norman  Watson agreed. The question  arose as to whether such rates  should be set on an area-wide  basis or by regions. It was argued that populated areas, in  paying a stated tax could be  subsidizing other areas. The  matter was left for future discussion.  To Sechelt council's request  the regional district- help out  on the present Sechelt dump  which was used by areas outside Sechelt, directors expressed  sympathy for Sechelt but added  technically it could do nothing  for them.  On the subject of requests it  was directed by the directors  that in future all requests be  presented in writing.  So far the board has issued  five land leases, three in North  Lake and two in Ruby Lake  areas. A road in one lake area  brought forth the board policy  that such roads be left for use  until such time as proper roads  are built.  Chairman Watson reported  via ministerial correspondence  that the hospital improvement  district will remain intact, its  boundaries being similar to that  of the school board. There were  fears of its being included in a  Powell River regional setup.  On recreation matters, Trus-  OFF  TO  BRITAIN  With the arrival back in Gibsons . of . Dr. Hugh Inglis who  spent a year at Carmel Mercy  Hospital in Detroit, Michigan  in the United States,v Dr. J.' D.  Hobson left on May l'with his  family for Great Britain. In  turn each doctor of the clinic  spends a year overseas in rotation, at some medical institution, to improve on techniques.  tee Cliff Gilker reported that  Phil Lawrence, regional recreation director, will remain in  this area until September. This  led to lengthy discussion on recreation and parks. Trustee Gilker said the provincial department was apparently looking  upon the Sunshine Coast area  as an experimental one and that  the regional board should get  into this field of. endeavor. Trus-  iee Gilker reporting on a meeting with Mr. Panton of the recreation department stated that  t hat board had no alternative.  but to accept Mr. Panton's proposition of associating Mr. Lawrence with the regional board  in an unofficial capacity until  March 31 with no financial ob^  ligation involved. When the vote  was taken Trustee Feeney dissented. He explained he felt  the provincial government was  trying to dump everything on to  regional districts. He urged  caution.  IOOF appeal  During the past 17 years the  Independent Order of Oddfellows has sponsored over 12,000  young students in a project called The Oddfellows' United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth. Last  year the Pilgrimage included  nine students from British Co-  . aumbia. In 1968, The Arbutus  Rebekah Lodge No. 76, Gibsons,  hopes to send one student at  least, from Elphinstone secondary school on this pilgrimage  to the United Nations. It has  sent two during previous years.  The main point of the pilgrimage is the week spent in New  York attending lectures, touring the United Nations buildings, visiting missions, and embassies of other countries. To  launch this project to send a  student from grade 11 on the  1968 pilgrimage, the lodge is  sponsoring an evening of films  on May 31 in Gibsons Elementary School activity hall. Mr.  Vedder Miller will be speaker  for the feature, a color film,  Prelude to Peace Youth and the  United Nations. Two National  Film board films, City of Gold,'  a tale of the Gold Rush commentated by Pierre Berton and,  Above the Timberline, will also  be shown. There will be a silver  collection.  Klondike!

Rinse  well, and, dry.  Q. Please suggest a. good,  quick  facial-mask  treatment.  A. Paint the white of egg  over face and throat, allow to  remain on for at least ten or  fifteen minutes, then' rinse off  with warm water.  Q. What is a good formula  for a homemade hand cream  or lotion?  A. Two-third^ cup of mutton  tallow, ^-cup of mineral oil,  one teaspoon of borax, and  three tablespoons of water. And  for a nice aroma, you can add  some oil of geranium.  Q. In what manner do you  suggest applying one's eyeshadow?  A. Half-close the eye you're  working on, then blend your  shadow over the lower half of  your eyelid, from corner toward  temple. Use your fingertip to  smooth the color out into the  surrounding area. It should  fade out to nothing at the outer  corner of your eye.  Q. I have a quite noticeable  fuzz on my upper lip and, rather than shave it, I'd like to  bleach it in some way. How  can I do this?  , A. Regular lemon juice applications are often effective in  lightening such hair.  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. When one is attending a  banquet and doesn't drink coffee, is it proper to indicate  this fact to the waiter by turning one's cup over?  A. No. Much better to indicate the fact by a slight shake  of the head and a "No, thank  you."  Q. Where should one's return  address be properly placed on  the envelope of a letter?  A. The preferred position is  in the' upper lefthand corner  of the face of the envelope���although when the envelope is  too small for this, the return  address is sometimes written  on the back flap.  Q. When making introductions, how do you decide in  which order the persons should  be spoken?  A; Always say the name of  the person you are introducing  last, and |he name of the more  important person is spoken  first. Thus, if introducing your  daughter, Jane, to elderly Mrs.  Mullen, you would say, "Mrs.  Mullen, this is my daughter,  Jane."  I. C_. Although I've been married two years, I still don't  know how to address.my wife's  parents. Mr. and Mrs. sounds  too stiff, and Mother and Dad  doesn't seem appropriate.  ; A.

One Specialist in Seniors' says  there : are now three classifications:  (1) The young old (between  60 and 75).  (2) The middle-aged old  (75 to 90).  (3) The old old (90 to  100).  She even suggested still a  fourth class: the very old old,  for the growing group of over  one hundred's!  The barrier to employment  may be broken by taking further training, or producing a  persuasive reference, or offering to work for a short trial  period. Or running one's own  show at home.  We, are all needed somewhere. I'm sending you my  ten-cent leaflet "A Salute to  Seniors", which may' inspire  you. (Others may have this by  writing in for it.)   ���  DEAR DORIS ��� I am going  to be 14 in a short time, so  short it is making me nervous.  You see, I am going ��� steady  with a boy 17 arid he doesn't  know my age. I look mature  for my age, and like so many  girls these days I am more  :mature.  I'm"throwing arparty for my  *_irthdayt and I .want to know  vhether to tell him the reason.  it wouldn't lie to him. He might  ���think I'm too young to go  j steady, or he might; decide he',  ."oves me just as much. ;  Don't advise me on my age  or say I'm too young; just say  if I should tell him.  Sweet Fourteen  DEAR    FOURTEEN    ���  Would the alternative be to  keep your, age a secret forever? Better come clean and let  him decide whether he thinks  you are all grown up, like you  think you are.  A Sweet Fourteen has very  little way of even knowing  what the word mature means.  Anymore than you understand  the word love.  DEAR DORIS ���  I  am   19  years old and I'm finishing  grade 12. I find it hard to  concentrate on my subjects. I  study some work one day, and  the next day I'll have forgotten it. This is getting me down.  I get so moody and can't stand  the least bit of noise.  Most of my friendsTare work-;  ing on their careers and here I  am7 7-.'"'"7'-        :;''   "v"''  Blues  DEAR BLUES ��� You'd be  an exception if you didn't find  ~it tough going without a teacher. It takes rare discipline to  stick with correspondence  studies. Arid a highly desirable  goal. Book learning comes easy  to some. But just wait until  you get into practical work;  you may outshine your pals  then.  Do this: Set aside, regular  times for studies; change the  subject you work on fairly often; be sure your study spot is  in a quiet corner. Then get enough, rest, and soirie recreation  every day. If possible find a  . t e a c h e.r who'll discuss what  troubles you most, once in. a  while.  Don't give up. Success is so  close!  CROSSWORD:!..>���_��;���:;>   *    By A.C.

A NEW SHIELD for having the greatest increase in meriibership  during 1966 was presented to the Sunshine Coast Kiwanis club of  Gibsons. Above is Don4 Douglas on the right, this year's president  and on the left is R. D. Hopkin, chairman of last yearis memoer-  j-iip committee under the. presidency of James Drummond. The  increase in members totalled 88 percent arid led division two of  kiwanis clubs in this field of endeavour. The Gibsons club is the  first to have its name on this shield:        .;���'���'  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By   .fACK  DAVIS.   M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  The first session of Canada's  27th parliament is  oyer.  After  gone up. They have gone up because Finance Minister Sharp  believes in charging for these  additional services ori'a pay-as-  you-gp   basis.   But  there   is   a  a record breaking 249 days, it  firnit0~to~ what   CanadTans "can  afford. This is why the main  emphasis, in the next session  which begins early iri May, will  have to be on cost cutting especially in some of our major  government departments.,  The government's program  will be outlined in the next  speech from the throne. But  here again the accent must be  on economy. There/will be a  thorough overhaul of the Broadcasting act. The immense budget of the CBC will have to be  cut back. And the M.P.'s themselves, will have.to turn to less  expensive matters like divorce  reform and pollution control,  to   that  wound up at 3:00 a.m. on the  morning of April 27. A long  drawn out affair it is true but  a great deal was accomplished  nevertheless.  Fortunately, the committee  system really began to work.  By taking much of the detail  of the floor of the. house of  commons, small groups of energetic M.P.'s were able to get  down to cases. With the aid of  expert witnesses they altered  a good deal of legislation ���  legislation which could not possibly have passed through the  house of commons in its original  form.  No less than 30 committees  were at work. Comprised of  ��� M.P.'s from all parties they  ' dealt with matters which ranged all the way from drugs to  deposit insurance. Here are a  few of the more than -50 major  items which the Pearson government has now put into effect  since the. general election in  1965.  A new National Transportation act ��� one which will,  at. long last, make it possible for our major railways  to pay their own way.  A complete overhaul of  the Bank act. By making  our chartered banks more  competitive this should help  to reduce interest rates to  small borrowers.  Federal assistance for the  training of workers who  want to upgrade their skills  or move to other occupations.  A' new Immigration act  which places the main emphasis on skills as a criterion for entry into Canada  Unification of "Canada's  Armed Forces with a view  to cutting costs and improving the effectiveness of our  defence effort.  A guaranteed minimum  income of $105 to, Canada's  senior citizens.  A new Canada Assistance  act which would underwrite  provincial schemes for social security on a dollar for  dollar basis.  Medicare, again on a dollar for dollar basis with the  provinces to be brought in,  nationally, by July 1,' 1968.

Bank helps  out golfers  Handicap chairmen 'arid their  committees across the country  will now have help from Bank  of Montreal computers in calculating golf handicaps. G.  Arnold Hart, chairman and  president, said the bank has introduced a new service to relieve golf clubs of the chore  of calculating handicaps.  The program was developed  with the approval of the Royal  Canadian Golf Association, at  the Board of Trade Country  Club in Toronto, where it received enthusiastic support.  The service has been endorsed  for countrywide application by  the RCGA, whose rules will  apply.  Twice monthly, participating  golf clubs will receive summaries of members' handicaps  calculated by computers at the  bank's Genie centres in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.  Clubs and golfers will be able  to use these summaries both to  ascertain the handicap and to  post new scores.  In addition, individual~ handicap cards will be provided for  members of clubs affiliated with  the provincial golf associations  and the RCGA, and cards will  be renewed automatically at  least once a month. The cards  will . be valid for tournament  purposes.  Each of the bank's 995 offices in Canada will act as relay points for the regional  Genie centres.  8       Coast News, May 4, 1967.

This board is made up of representatives from four municipal councils and three school  boards from Powell River to  Pemberton. One such meeting  during 1966 held at Squamish  saw three members attend. The  meeting was called off. Recently the board decided to consider opening a headquarters  at Squamish. This would apparently cover a smaller area  than from Powell River to Pemberton.  Gibsons Councillor Ken Goddard has arranged to attend.  Councillor Louis Hansen of Sechelt has decided not to attend  owing to the time it takes to  get there and, as he added at a  recent council meeing, not  enough is done to warrant taking that much travelling time.  Stamp honors  Canadian Press  AN EXPLANATION  To   clarify the  so-called ambulance which Gibsons fire department is purchasing, a better explanation would be to call  it a rescue truck. While council  deliberations at the last meeting termed it as an ambulance,  this label has drawn criticism.  It is . not a public ambulance.  It is  for rescue work for the  fire    department    carrying  stretchers,   lighting   and   other  requirements for rescue work at  fires.  r"  The 50th Anniversary of Canadian Press will be marked by  the issue of a 5c Canada Post  Office commemorative stamp  on August 31 Postmaster General Jean-Pierre Cote announces.  Canadian Press is a co-operative that makes no profit and  declares no dividends. It is a  news-gathering and news distributing service which has  been regarded as a unifying  force in Canada since its founding during the wartiirie stresses  of 1917. Each of the 103 Canadian newspapers represented  in its membership, whether  large or small, has an equal  vote in the affairs of the association.  Designed    by    William    Mc-  lauchlan of Mount Albert,  Ontario,   the  new  stamp  will  be  large in size, horizontal in format  and  produced  in  varying  shades of blue on white. Principal element of the design is  an oblate spheroid    form    in  which is contained a map centering     the     western     hemisphere;  superimposed    on    this  area is a white strip,  pointed  at each end.  A-. film, demonstration and  practice of the method of mouth  to mouth resuscitation was the  main feature of a meeting held  recently of the Sunshine Coast  Power Squadron at the home of  Dr. and Mrs. E. Paetkau. The  film, entitled The Breath of life  and a life size model were  brought from Vancouver by B.  B. Scott of the Vaucouver Power Squadron.  During the meeting, plans for  floats for the May Day and July  1 parades were discussed. It  was announced that the membership of the squadron would  be swelled by four new members, who had recently successfully completed the navigation  course. The new .members will  be introduced to, the squadron  at the May meeting, which will  take the form of a sea-food din-"  ner at the home of Dr. and Mrs.  A. Swan. To facilitate the  smooth running of the new  squadron, it was  decided  that  Grandale unit  explores Indians  The UCW Grandale unit held  its April meeting at the home of  Mrs. F. M. Lord, Soames Point.  For the past three montihs, under direction of Mrs. A. Y. Far-  is, the group have made a study  of the British Columbia Indians.  The subject held interest and  challenge. Each member was  assigned research work.  At the April meeting which'-,  concluded the study period,  each gave a report of her study  into the Indian traditions, their  culture arid the frustrations and  difficulties of adjusting to life  beyond the boundaries of the  reservation.  Adding interest .to the reports,  Mrs. Lord showed pictures of  life among the Indians living at  ���ootka Sound and Friendly ���'  Cove on the west coast of-Vancouver Island.  Mrs. J. S. Macey again offered her fine home on Georgia  Heights for a Centennial tea on  May 17. The tea will be carried ���--,  out along this theme, with the  servers wearing Centennial  dress.

The Building Inspector will have instructions as board policy to adapt to conditions, to be helpful, or to work to protect the builders interests and invest-*  ment.  Our policy overall in adapting these various construction regulations is to raise and maintain the standard of the  whole community, to protect the existing owners from loss of  values, the actions of rogues, and finally to protect fools  from themselves. ���  The area directors are listed below and will make themselves available to any resident who wishes information or  assurances.
