It Is surmised that the  fire started. through some elec  trical source. Damage, to part  of the home was considerable.  Later in the same day the firemen tried tracing on a fire first  in vicinity of Glad Tidings tabernacle then up the hill at the  Pentecostal church. Delay was  caused as the result of phoned  misdirections. The blaze,, created by fat on a stove, was quelled without the aid off the-firemen soon after the alarm was  turned in.  Low tender  on harbor  The Jim Rohib Contracting Co.  Ltd., of Chilliwack, B.C., has  been awarded a $150,985 contract for the construction of /a  boat harbour at Sechelt, Coasts  Capilano M.P. Jack Davis announces. The successful tender  was the lowest of nine opened  April 27. High bid was $326,788.  An irregular area of approximately 400 feet by 180 feet will  be dredged to a depth of 10 feet  and a 615-tfoot long breakwater,  requiring the transport of. 42,000  cubic yards of quarried rock,  constructed.  Purpose of the work is to provide a refuge harbor for transient fishing vessels and pleasure  craft.  Supervision of the project will  be under William Koropatnick,  director of the Pacific Region  of the Federal Department of  Public Works, 1110 West Georgia  Street, Vancouver 5, B.C.  The following statement has  been issued - by the Gibsons -  Port; Mellon Centennial Pool  committee:,:-  The Gibsons - Port Mellon  Centennial Pool Committee has  concluded from the results of the  recent canvass that the people  of the community do not desire  this project.  We have decided to hold the  collected funds in trust until  June 30, 1967 and should no  public action be taken before  that time these will be returned  to the donors.      !  We must therefore turn over  the continuanc of any Centennial project to the original committees.  Port Mellon Centennial committee has already stated that  its pledge is entirely dependent  on the construction of a swimming pool.  With the denial of the swimming pool project it will then  be necessary to. start anew on  any Centennial project.

J.  V. Clyne, chairman and chief  executive officer of the company, announces. It will employ  about 300 people.  IS  MAIL (CHANGE  A later pickup of mail-  through Gibsons post office  started daily Tuesday with mail  for Vancouver closing at 5 p.m.  Postmaster James Marshall announces. This should give business houe and the general public a little more time. The previous mail pickup time for  Vancouver    was     three    p.m.  L. L. G. Bentley, senior vice-  president of Canadian Forest  Products Ltd!, has made the  following announcement to the  employees  of the Howe Sound  Pulp Division at Port Mellon:  "It has been apparent for the  last two or three years that the  construction of new pulp mills  and the   expansion  of  existing  ���mills had inevitably to result in  a temporary oversupply of market pulp. During the last few  months   this   situation  has   become  increasingly  critical  and  we now find that our markets  will simply not absorb pur, full  ^production for the remainder of  ���?>ttiis year. .-^\-.:.- .���-  ; "The Port Mellon mill will  v shut down at 8 a.m. on June 30  arid will start up at 8 a.m. on  July 17. Although every effort  is being made to sell and ship  as much pulp as possible, there  is a distinct possibility that additional down time may be re-  qured later in the year."  The Port Mellon mill produces  kraft pulp which is marketed  throughout the world.  While no official statement  has been given the Coast News  on the subject of wages for employees during this layoff period  it is understood the layoff is re-  arded by mill management as  a summer holiday period and  those who have not had their  holidays will not suffer loss of  pay. It is also understood that  less than ten percent of mid  staff have taken their holiday,  so far. They will be the <nly  ones whose pay will be affected.  It is likely that in view of  present inventory situation of  stocks at puljp mills that the  government may take a second  look at the dates that have been  set for the start of work on new  mills in British Columbia.  The export market situation  has not changed, judging from  most recent export conditions.  What has happened is that the  present number of mills have  produced sufficient pulp as to  create an oversupply in inventories and until this is reduced  a shut-down is in order. It is  also quite probable there may.  be another shutdown in the fall  months but on this there does  not appear to be anything definite. A lot will depend on the  supply situation based on stockpiles in : the hands of the mills  in British Columbia.  Traffic heavy  over holiday  This year's May 24 holiday  traffic to the Sunshine Coast  broke all records, so much so  that the Ferry Authority had to  switch ferries from other runs  to clean up accumulating traffic  at Horseshoe Bay and also at  Langdale. Even the Bowen  Queen was used. It can handle  50 cars.  The experience of many people can be outlined by what happened to Mel Hough who travelled from Kamloops to Horseshoe Bay and then spent about  the same time as the trip from  Kamloops in trying to get  aboard the ferry. Another visitor from Seattle waited from 5  p.m. until 11 o'clock to get over  to see relatives in Gibsons.  One ferry Friday carried five  SMT buses, two chartered and  three passenger traffic. Gibsons ROMP report only one  minor traffic accident.  Four applications for the job  of assistant to Sechelt's village  clerk are under consideration  This was decided at a meeting  .of .council on Wednesday evening of last week. There were  five applications but one was  considered unacceptable.  A reply from Sechelt Waterworks in answer to a letter from  council seeking a price on the  water system, stated that up  to the present no price had  been set but the officials of the  system would be willing to receive  any offer.  The Red Cross application  for a $400 grant from the municipality was turned down. The  Red Cross by letter informed  council it was unable to get  any help from private persons  to help in the annual campaign  therefore the Red Cross had no  alternative but to ask for a  campaign grant as a token of  appreciation for the work of  the Red Cross among citizens  of the community. No arrangements had been made in the  budget to allow for such an  amount to be  donated.  Later  council granted $10 tov assist  the Sunshine Coast Fall Fair,  this being an annual grant  which had been set up in the  budget.  Charles McDermid's application for a building permit for  a two-storey cement block building on Lot 24 on Porpoise Bay  Rd., was held up so that further information could be presented on how the building was  to be used. It,was understood  the upper part would be living,  quarters.  Councillors were in sympathv  with the idea of a commercial  building in that location, maintaining that that side of the road  should be commercial. However there were two problems  involved in the application, rc-  zoning    and    industrialization.  ROCKHOUND MEETING  The Sunshine Coast Rock-  hounds will hold their monthly  meeting Thursday, May 25, in  the Lapidary Class workshop  Gibsons Elementary school,  7:30 p.m.  above statement from the campaign committee, held a special  meeting and decided that the  problem should be turned back  to the original committee to  see what could be done. This  meeting will be held Thursday  evening at 8 o'clock in the Municipal Hall.        .  The campaign comittee which  organized the "door to door canvass over a recent weekend  found that the public response  was definitely nowhere near  what. was required financially  to help the committee get the  pool under construction. This  failure to achieve an objective  means apparently that the Port  Mellon money in the pool totalling $4,850 will now be withdrawn, leaving Gibsons village  with less than $10,000 with  which to work.  Gibsons council has discovered iby telephoning" Victoria officials that the site of the project can be . changed and not  only that but the project itself  can be changed if such action  is necessary.  This is the Centennial gavel  which arrived in Gibsons Tuesday under escort of Sgt. Don  Wilson of Squamish RCMP and  Sgt. Norman Kenny of Gibsons  RMOP. along with Councillor  Mel Carricow of Squamish.  It was passed to Chairman  Wes Hodgson of Gibsons council in a brief ceremony in the  Municipal Hall and used to  bring to order Tuesday night's  council meeting. Present at the  ceremony were members of Gibsons and Gibsons rural Centennial committees and guests.  On Wednesday it was taken to  Sechelt by Chairman Wes Hodb-  son accompanied by Sgt. Kenny  and   handed   over  to   Sechelt's  z:-i.���-s^  council chairman, William Swain  He will in turn pass it on to  Powell River later Wednesday  and from there it will travel  down Vancouver Island to the  provincial archives where it will  find a resting place after having  passed through the hands of  more than 100 municipal councils.  Aceessnot  yet settled  Henry J. Smith of Sanitty'sc  Marina, Gibsons harbor, wrote;  to Gibsons council pointing out.  that 75 feet clearance between:  the Walter. Hendrickson proposed : Boat' and the' government  floats would be insufficient access to his new marina.  The letter came before Tuesday night's meeting: At the  same time provincial government engineers in estimating a  clearance of 210 feet as an access area informed council that  the estimate ���. was incorrect and  that the access area should read  66 feet. Mr. Smith maintained  that 75 to 100 feet is necessary.  'Councillor Wally Peterson was  of the opinion that council should  go along with harbor development but that this matter should  not be drawn out as there was  too much involved. Council  would have to see what engineers would allow as an access  area.  Mr. Smith argued that he was  spending a considerable amount  of money on his development  and he wanted good access to  the marina. Mr. Hendrickson of  Gibsons Boat Works wanted to  extend his float. At an earlier  council meeting he stated he  had already arranged for a float  to be installed.  Coach times  The Centennial Stage Coach  which will arrive in Gibsons,  Thursday, June 1, will make its  first stop at Elphinstone school  at 12:15 noon. Students from the  elementary and the Secondary  schools will have a chance to  see it then.  It will be escorted by a L.  B. Ranch riders and from the  school area it will move to the  Bank of Montreal parking lot  where.a scroll will be presented to council Chairman Wes.  Hodgson.  Afterwards it will proceed to  the Municipal hall where the  register will be signed. It will  then depart from Langdale via  ferry to North Vancouver where  it will travel the Caribou trail  to Fort Steele, its final destination.  SOCCER AWARDS  It will be awards night for  the Juvenile Soccer association  Friday night starting at 7 p.m.  in Sechelt Elementary school  activity hall.

Centennial pool blocked  Lack of support of the Centennial pool leaves no doubt that  the public is indifferent. This is the only conclusion one can draw  from the result of the house to house canvass. The financiall return was poor,  very poor.  It has been the editor's lot to have followed the course of,  the pool project right from the first meeting and it has been one  of the most frustrating experiences anyone could wish to have  had. However that is now water under the bridge and nothing  can be done to change it.  It should be a lesson to those who took part in the exercise  of striving co arrange a Centennial project for Gibsons. It wajs  hoped that with the increased impetus give the committee with  the entry of Port Mellon that somehow something could be achieved. Perhaps the entry of Port Mellon came too late.  Many people put a good number of hours into the project.  They gave up considerable of their time to give what they thought  would be a good Centennial project. Therje is nothing wrong with  it. With well-directed enthusiasm it possibly could have become  a fact.  It is hoped that a new project, if the citzenry can be  single-minded about it, will not have too prolonged a waiting  period before some positive action is taken towards its accomplishment. We will not be having another Centennial celebration  it is hoped, for many, many years. So if the citizens of Gibsons  want to have "something to commemorate the 1967 Centennial let  us have definite action as quickly as possible. It is understood  "Victoria Centennial officals are not binding Gibsons to any specific project ��� but they want something done. So let's get busy.  Unity in the Community gets things done  Rescue lessons would help  Drownings rose 141/, percent in 1966 to 1^,265. This is the highest figure tallied since the Canadian Red Cross Society began  compiling figures.  Drownings associated with boating, swimming and falling into  water continued to account for the majority of fatalities; 861 victims or 60 percent of the total.  Drownings in the following categories increased by 180 percent or more: Wading; poor swimmer; diving intjo water; attempting rescue;  occupational; non-aquatic vehicle;  seizure.  Provided we have average  summer weather, it is estimated  that there will be 1,210 drownings in Canada in 1967.  The Red Cross has announced a new swimming course in its  water safety educational program. It's called Survival Swimming,  an all-encomoassing course designed to teach self-survival in the  water as well as the helping of others in distress.  The course attempts to duplicate realistic emergency situations. For most of the skills, the candidates are required to wear!  light clothing. Treading water is one example. The candidate,  while wearing clothing, will be taught how to tread water and  don a life-jacket at the same time; a useful skill if your motor  boat happens to hit an unseen log and capsizes. /  The candidates in the Survival Swimming course, in effect,  go through a rehearsal of realistic emergency situations in the  water. The idea behind it is that if you go through an approxima-:  tion of the real thing and learn what to do to save yourself you'll  know what to do if the real thing should actually happen.  It's just the thing for people who, somehow, have never managed to get around (to learning how to swim or learning what to do  when! a water accident happens. May 28 to June 3 is Red Cross  Water Safety Week in Canada. Learn to survive and stay alive!  Be water wise, and take a Survival Swimming course.  School TV analyzed  Some school systems are buying closed circuit TV without  first assessing the educational  task to which it will be assigned, according to School Progress.  Many administrators are laboring under the misunderstanding that educational tolovision  will: solve the shortage of  qualified teachers; help alleviate over-crowded facilities;  save time and money; be educationally fashionable. Many  school systems are investing in  instructional television because  they think it's the fashionable  thing to do; some school officials are quick to jump aboard  a new bandwagon.  Instructional television is not  a toy. It can be an effective  means of solving some educational problems. It can also be  an expensive educational disaster if not intelligently used.  Television is a dependent variable relative to the solution of  educational problems. Just as  t^-ols, to serve their purpose  effectively, must be appropriate  ^rr the job and the hands of  skilled craftsmen, educational  television is not a universal  answer. It can be one answer  to some specific clearly defined educational problems.  Television does not supplant  the teacher. It is a medium of  communication and, as such,  can provide some unique communication functions. Instructional television will not improve a poorly conceived curriculum or weak teaching methods. A school system should  survey its total educational  program, including general curriculum, to find out wheih educational tasks could be more  effectively accomplished by employing educational television.  It should know the focus, scope  and specific objectives of its  instructional program before  considering the implementation  of educational television.  By ERIC THOMSON  Seven years of Easter visits  to Savary Island might create  the impression that this year's  trip was routine, but, while the  road is the same, the 90 miles  of Sunshine Coast display many  images to those who love it.  This year my son, Willie, decided to get ahead of the weekend traffic by coming from  North Vancouver in his Volkswagen bus on the Thursday  night, so as to be on the road  before the first morning ferry  came to Langdale. Last Easter,  he and his family had toured  Spain in comfort. in this bus,  and it certainly has the advantage of plenty of room for everything and everybody.  We didn't meet a car from  Hopkins Landing to Lund, and  the only cars going our way  were five off the first ferry,  which overtook us near Earl's  Cove. When we were passing  through Powell River, we noticed several boys with fish  poles heading for the breakwater, where there were fish  boats trolling close in, and it"  appeared that the boys were going to jig herring.  Easter being early this year,  there was not a leaf or dandelion in sight on the roadside  between Powell River and Lund,  which we have seen as a double  ribbon of gold set in green.  What was more important, and  heartening to '"lis," was the  seascape north and west. This  time everything was all smiles,  like a Mediterranean scene,  just a ripple on the water and  no wind.  After the somnolent places-  through which we had passed.  Lund was humming with a'c*  tivity, station wagons, campers  and cars parked everywhere,  boats by the half-dozen, and a  line-up for the water" taxi.  Everybody was talking to everybody without introduction in'the.  up-coast way, and the only  glum faces were those of three  beer-parlor habitues, who were  leaning on its verandah rail, because it was closed on Good  Friday. There was a riot of  color, the houses, the cars and  the boats with the background  of the green hills and snowy  mountains, and the blue sea in  front making a picture that  somebody some day will capture.  Willie and I sat in the front  seat of the Volkswagen admiring how the world was made,  and the varied bustle on the  wharf, and knew that we were  faced with over an hour's wait  for the water taxi. It occurred  to me that it would pass the  time to play some tunes on my  bagpipes up and down the  wharf, and I got them out. Without any hitch they played themselves, and I could see that  they added the right note, particularly at a station wagon  parked nearby from which  three young men were unload-  POINT  OF LAW  6y ��/v f^raclidnf oLawf  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.  We have received several  questions asking how collection  agencies operate. We recommend that these be used to collect accounts or defhts that  would otherwise be written off  or forgotten. The creditor  should .first exhaust his own  efforts to collect. He should  contact the debtor several  times ��� by phone or letters.  If he can't get anywhere, he  should write a final letter saying that if satisfactory arrangements for payment are not  made in (say) ten days, he is  instructing his iawyer to sue,  etc. If this doesn't produce results he should then turn the  account over to a collection  agency.  The collection agency is set  up to collect debts and they  know and employ all the psychological tricks. This is now  a highly specialized job. They  will charge a good fee ��� up  to one-third of the amount collected ��� but if they don't collect, they don't charge ��� so  there is nothing to lose. The  agency starts off with a series  of letters and phone calls to  the debtor which increase :n  severity. They will bug the  debtor till he pays something.  They all employ a skip tracer  ��� another highly specialized  occupation ��� to trace debtors  who move around. The agency  will locate the debtor's employer, his bank account, and the  source of assets or income. If  they can't succeed, the agency's  iawyer will write a letter  threatening a law suit and the  garnishment of wages, etc. (All  collection agericies dngage <a  lawyer on a permanent retainer.)  If all fails, the agency will  go back to the creditor and advise that the time is ripe to  sue or write off the debt. They  will explain that they require  an advance of a sum of money  to cover legal fees and expenses and that these are added  on to the deibt and will be re-  *r  turned if successful. At this  stage, the creditor must decide  whether he wishes' to invest  some money in the venture or  whether this would be throwing good money after bad.  If the creditor decides to proceed and the debt is under ��500,  the agency will suev in small  debts court themselves where  no lawyer is required and the  legal costs, are low. If the debt  is over $500 the agency will instruct their lawyer to sue and  perhaps garnish wages. The  agency may obtain a motor  vehicle search with a view to  seizing property.  Some debtors are extremely  difficult to collect from, for example, itinerant laborers, self-  employed persons . and those  with hidden assets or incomes.  Most debtors can, however, be  forced to pay if the creditor is  willing to persist and to pay  for all collection procedures. A  previous article has dealt with  the garnishing of wages. Later  articles will deal with seizing  property and the judgment summons.  LUMBER'S ORIGIN  The use of the word lumber  to designate items of sawn  timber is commonly supposed  to have originated in Boston in  pre-revolutionary days. The  phrase lumber and other goods  first appears dn some Boston  records of 1663. In English usage lumber is generally applied  to that clutter of old and discarded household items which  accumulate over the years in  attics and lumber rooms.  In the Boston of colonial days  it was their hajbit in referring  to the logs, timber and boards  which littered the harbor front  to use the term lumbered up.  Inevitably, the colonials came  to refer to such timber simply  as lumber.  ing what looked to be  an explorers'  outfit.  I got talking with them, and  my guess was correct. The eldest of them, a young Scot, who  had been in Canada three years,  had  bought   a  lot   on  Savary,  sight unseen, and had been assured that it was "high and  dry."    Willie    pointed solemnly  to the sand cliff at the middle  of  our island,   which  is  about  (Continued   on   Page   3)  N.

These adventurers had in  addition to the usual camp essentials, rifle and shot-gun and  belts of ammunition, and the  largest size of a methodist axe,  on which the leader had already cut himself..  Our time came to move and  we got our belongings on board  the water-taxi, and by that time  a junior water-taxi came in for  our. three musketeers, with the  idea of landing them on our side  : of the island about level with  their lands and premises. We  made our trip and got ashore  at the high tide mark, dry foot  and without incident.  While we were packing 7 our  things up to the house, the little taxi pulled in exactly whWe  ours had landed us, the, men  reported that it had been too  rough and rocky to go ashore  level with their lot. They sized  up their gear, and it was obvious that it would take several  trips to pack it all to their lot,  a mile away. It was also obvious that it was going to rain.  Willie dryly observed that  . they would be a tired, wet, and  hungry crew by the time they  had set up camp, and made  the suggestion that all they had  to do was to open the door of  his cabin, hear the house, and  from there work on their lot.  The cabin door was opened, and  there was everything, stove,  fuel, beds, dishes, water and  light. They just got under cover  when the rain came. Willie and  I had got the big house partly  opened up when our three  guests appeared to thank Willie for his kindness.  I suggested that as we had  all had several kinds of good  luck, it was proper to pour a  pagan libation to the guardian  genius of the place, and mentioned that Willie and I, seven  years ago to the day, had stepped ashore on this beach, the  first to land there, to build this  house, and that we wished them  the same good fortune in their  PENINSULA  SEPTIC TANK  SERVICE  PROMPT EFFECTIVE  ON-THE-SPOT SERVICE  CALL-  886-9533 or 886-2230  (after 5:30)  Extension  Phones are  PRIVATE  PHONES  No need to share all  your phone conversa-  tidns with the family,  when extensions cost  so little.

I  made for the kitchen to get the  bottle, but our Scot's friend  knew his stuff and quietly stated that he had figured out the  situation the same way, and  produced a bottle of Vat, 69,  which was the right spirit in  the right place. The pledge was  duly honored, and I could see  our visitors looking with interest, and I think, envy, at my  son's gracious home.  We didn't see much of them  after that, but after Willie and  I had gone down to the shore  in the last of the twilight to  have our usual last look at the  splendor of the sunset, I noticed our Scot headed in the same  direction betwixt the gloaming  and the mirk for his first picture of the same scene. Thereafter they located their lot, and  Willie was busy installing a new  bathroom in a house along the  shore.'  The night before they left,  our visitors paid a free and  easy party call at our house,  and the talk got round to fishing. Our Scot's friend had dipped his flies in most of the  rivers and lochs of Scotland  between the Solway and the  Pentland Firths. He was a trout  enthusiast and a successful one,  anyway he could spin convincing fish stories. I went to (bat  for our side and told of the  salmon fishing right in front  of where we were sitting, and  we had photographs to prove  it.    ������  I also mentioned that I had  seen our friend going down to  the shore the first night that  he was here, and I asked him  what he thought about what he  had seen. He said it was as  beautiful as the view from the  Ayrshire coast across the mouth  of the Clyde, over the Cumbraes  and Arrant  To each his own: in my time  I have been there when the  mist comes o'er the Cumbraes  and the Arran Peaks are grey  and, to be told that what this  young man had taken with him  as his memory of. his home  land had its equal in what he  had seen at Savary for the first  time, is more than a compliment. One of these days there  may be a song written absut  it to equal Rothesay Bay.  We played them off next  morning on the water-taxi to  We're no awa' to bide awa'.

Nearly 40  years ago, when I was camping at Hopkins Landing under  very primitive conditions, I had  a young Scots wife come up to  see what it looked like, and  she fell in love with the place  and is there now.  (To be continued)  WHAT'S THE  NEW CANADIAN DAIRY  COMMISSION DOING ABOUT  FEDERAL GOVERNMENT  PRICE SUPPORTS?  Mi  **<  - _"*������_ rv  ������*<*  ��� The new Canadian Dairy Commission took its first  step in furthering the development of a sound, efficient  dairy industry in its stabilization program for the year  starting April 1,1967.  ��� It is supporting market prices of major dairy products  at levels which are equivalent to about 29 cents a  hundred more than a year ago for manufacturing milk  testing 3.5%.  ��� The federal government is providing funds to the  Commission for a subsidy to manufacturing milk and  cream shippers equivalent to $1.21 a hundred for 3.5%  milk. The rate last year was 85c. From the $1.21 there  will be a holdback equivalent to 11c for export price  equalization, with any unused amount refunded at the  end of the year.  ��� Basis for the payment will be the volume of manufacturing milk and cream required for the Canadian market,  approximately the amou nt for which subsidies were paid  I  m  i  ft  f  to manufacturing milk and cream shippers in 1966-67.  ��� After mid-May, when 1966-67 records are completed, each registered producer will be informed of the  volume for which he will be eligible for subsidy in 1967-  68. This will be based on the volume for which he  received subsidy in 1966-67. The amount for the year  will be broken down into monthly quotas, based on the  normal percentage of milk and cream marketed each  month. Those who received subsidy for less than  50,000 pounds (1,7.50 pounds butterfat) last year will  be eligible for subsidy up to that amount this year.  ��� This new program, in terms of price support and  subsidies, represents ah increase of 65c, or 16%, over  the federal program for 1966-67. It is over a dollar, or  33%, higher than in 1965.  ��� What's the new Dairy Commission doing to help  improve the dairy industry? Quite a lot. And it's only  the beginning.  ,.u  CANADIAN DAIRY COMMISSION  OTTAWA  HON. J. J. GREENE, MINISTER 4    coast News, May 25,1967.   MISC.

Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. Someone told me that a  bride properly has about six  months in which to write thank-  you notes for wedding gifts received. Is this correct?  A. Indeed not! Good taste  and good breeding dictate her  acknowledgment of all gifts as  soon as possible.  ' Q. Is it correct to have one's  monogram engraved on the envelope  of personal  stationery?  A. No; the monogram is engraved only on the note paper  itself.  Q. Is it proper to hold the  fork or spoon in the hand at  the dinner table while engaged  in a lengthy conversation.  A. It looks much better if you  lay the 'utensil down when embarking on a lengthy discourse.  If held in the hand, you are  likely to find yourself waving it  about, and that would definitely be improper.  Q. What is the appropriate  thing to say to a friend when  you meet him on the street  just after you've learned of a  bereavement in his family?  A. A brief, but warm handclasp should be enough. Or just,  I'm very sorry. Don't launch  into any long speeches or ask  questions.  fashion  news  FASHION CONSULTANT T8 THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANAOAi  BY NANCY  GAYLORD  Can you crochet?

Now we have  it from the highest authority.  Now we have it from Two Nation Tommy. Now we have it  from Tommy Douglas himself.  The New 'Democratic Party  ��� the NDP ��� is definitely committed to a two nation state.  It is commited to a separate  status for Quebec. Proof of this  is to be found in the official  records in the house of commons; On May 11, 1967 ��� only  a few days ago���Tommy Douglas moved a motion of no confidence in the Pearson government. He said that it had failed, in this Centennial Year, to  make arrangements to amend  Canada's constitution. . It had  failed also to give special status  to the province  of Quebec.  Tommy Douglas was serious.  His motion if adopted would  have brought the government  down. It would have caused a  general election. It was the  most serious and the most provocative thing that the leader  of Canada's NDP Party could  'have done.  It.was interesting to note the  reaction of the French Canadian M.P.'s. Real Caoiiette,  who spoke right after Tommy  Douglas, said that no self-respecting French Canadian.wanted to be given special status.  All he wanted was an .even  break. So the NDP, in. trying  to outdo the Creditiste from  Quebec, could only number  among its supporters the true  separatists in the house of commons, the arch tory, Monsieur  Allard from Sherbrooke and  Gilles Gregoire, the self-appointed separatist spokesman from  Lapointe  in  Quebec.  Tommy Douglas ��� Two Nation Tommy ��� wasn't merely  having a brainstorm of his own.  He was following the NDP party  line. This two nation line, this  special status for Quebec line,  was laid down by a national  convention of the NDP, held in  Toronto in 1965. Catering to the  malcontents from Quebec it  said that the province of Quebec should be ^encouraged to  opt out of any national program  which, in any way, dealt with  matters which were wholly or  largely provincial under our  constitution. '  Tommy Douglas ��� Two Nation Tommy ��� would go-even  further. He would apparently  pass special Federal legislation  which would treat the people of  Quebec differently from those  living in the rest of Canada.  This, mark you, is an act of  desperation. The NDP has been  woefully out of touch with Quebec. It has never elected an  NDP member to the house of  commons for instance. Flunking at the polls so to speak,  it has been tempted to go to  extremes. Now it is catering to  the malcontents in the Province  of Quebec ��� to the small one  or two percent of the population which would tear up our  present Canadian constitution  in order to set up a socialist  state in La Belle Province.  What is my proof of this?  Well, in the last provincial election, in 1966, the NDP refused  to go along with Jean Lesage.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  It didn't like Daniel Johnson  either. So it decided to support  the RIN. RIN, incidentally,  stands for Rally for National  Independence. You know what  that means.  It means a highly organized,  socialistic government headquartered in Quebec City. It  means a government in Quebec  which is hostile to Ottawa. It  lies in the direction of fewer  contacts and lass communication with the rest of Canada.  These are . the people��� the  separatists and nationalists ���-  which Tommy Douglas7supports  in Quebec. These are his true  ' supporters, also, in the house  of commons. So the New Democratic Party, openly and as a  matter of public policy has now  committed itself to the idea of  a two nation state or of an,  associate status for Quebec, or  for Quebec having a particular  status in the overall, Canadian  scheme of things.  There it is, the NDP policy  on Quebec for all to see, I can  only say, like the Hon. Pierre  Trudeau, our present minister  of'justice in Ottawa, that to  follow this course would be to  scuttle Canadian federalism and  bring about political, economic  and social chaos in this country.

Adventure minded folk1' from  ten to a hundred are in for a  travel treat at Elphinstone Secondary School Friday night  when Adelard Boulanger, an  amazing 75 year old traveller in  far away places presents his  fabulous wildlife film Alaska  Arctic, under the auspices of  the Kinsmen Club of Gibsons.  In appearance, producer Bou-.  langer has Ibeeh described as a  mild mannered old gentleman  with a shock of white hair-and  a smile crinkled leathery countenance, '���������'���syy.  Since his retirement from, the  sawmill industry several years  ago Mr. Boulanger has covered  aN sizeable amount of territory.  Armed with cameras and ";���'hundreds of feet of film instead of  pick and shovel and gold 7pan,  the pictures he has brought out '  of the Northland are epic. While  the  souvenirs   he   carries  with,  him lend color and credibility to  his color film on Eskimo life in  the Arctic, Point Barrow, Kotzebue,   and   Nome.   Boulanger  travelled  13,000 miles  in  1963,  more mileage than many men  would cover in a lifetime to film  animals in their natural habitat, breathtaking shots of "polar!  bears on Arctic ice, bears fishing on Kodiak Island, walrus by  the  hundreds,  caribou  migrating by the tens  of  thousands,  reindeer and fur seals on Priibo-  lof Island.  Boulanger gravelled another  10,000 miles in1964 to get some  spectacular photographs of the  Alaskan earthquake disaster.  Again in 1965;. he devoted most  of his travelling time to the  northern-most areas of British  Columbia., and the result is an  excellent film.' featuring the province's wildlife.  No matter what age you won't  want to miss Adelard Boulanger. His rich philosophy of life  is wrapped up in his saga of the  hard gruelling miles travelled  in the northern hinterlands since  Guides honor mothers  Rangers, Guides and Brownies  from Gibsons and Roberts  Creek honored their mothers at  a dessert and coffee party in  the Christian Education Centre,  United Church, Gibsons. Repre-.  sented were the Air Ranger  Flight, Gibsons Guide Company  and three Brownie Packs, and  Roberts Creek Guide Company  and Brownie Pack with their  Leaders,  The   entertainment was   provided   by  the   girls   and   with  several    aspiring   young musicians  and  dancers  it was not  difficult to put together a delightful concert.    Carol   Olson,  company leader of the Gibsons  Guides was M.C.  The  Ranger  Flight prepared- an amusing skit  which    provided     considerable,  fun in the preparation. Debbie  Fiedler, Janet Hart and Valerie  Roberts of Gibsons 2nd Brownie  Pack also gave a well prepared  skit. First Giibsons Brownie and  the Guide Companies were represented  by   dancers.   Elaine  Gant, Deanna Glass and Susan  Lawson,    tap    dancer    Cheryl  Guelph  and   Patti   Hogue   and  Joanne Jorgenson. Breda Mac-.  Kenzie's poem My Mother was  well   received.   Kathy   Whiting  played  a  recorder  and  Shelly  Benson, Teresa Labonte, Susan  Peterson,   Maria   Rinaldis   and  Kathy Zueff are all promising  accordian   players.   The   grand  finale, a salute to Canada was  given by the newly-formed  third Gibsons Brownie Pack  which sang Canada's Centennial song with enthusiasm persuading everyone to join in an  encore and putting the guests,  in a happy mood to enjoy the  social hour.  The toast to the mothers was  given by Ginny Alsager to  which Mrs. Lenore Inglis replied. A presentation on behalf  of the auxiliary was made to  Mrs. Betty Allen who recently  retired from the Guide company.
