SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Homework!  Homework! A panel aided by  an audience in Elphinstone Secondary school Monday night  heard chairman Principal W. S.  Potter summarize the evening's  deliberations by stating that the  majority of speakers found  homework not necessarily good  but a place remains for home  study or research "which will  depend on the goals of the  student.  The meeting, part of the  school board's program of meetings with the public on education issues, was attended, by  about 30 people. The panel included the chairman, Lorna  Sneddon and Steven Lee, representing students along with  Eugene Yablonski for teachers  and Trustee Don Douglas, the  school board.  After the panel had aired its  views, the audience expressed-  opinions that covered some of  the ground left by panel members. The trend of discussion  appeared to lean towards having more time for study at  school with less homework.  Complaints were made that assigned work was never .checked  so what was the good of giving ;  such   assignments..  Another complaint was that  on one particular day there  would be homework arranged  by up to five teachers which  meant quite a pile-up of homework for that evening. It was  felt that there should be some  form of a check to avoid piling up.  Lome Jones, a grade five elementary, student offered his  views.   He argued  that  home-  do on your own, you would probably always depend on your  teacher but at home you don't  have your teacher to depend on.  ��*_ _��> ��l_  ����- .��,�����.. n<,  I think homework is a good  thing because it gives you a  responsibility.

Representing the founding  committee or the building of  senior citizens homes on the  Sunshine Coast Canon Alan  Greene obtained unanimous  consent of Sechelt's Old Age  Pensioners "'Organization to proceed further.  Two resolutions were placed  before the meeting and the first  called for empowering the  foundation committee to proceed with negotiations for. the  purchase of three acres of land  immediately west of Hacket  park in Sechelt and immediately north" of the Elementary  school. The resolution further  asked for the founding committee to raise $1,000 as a down  payment on the ��� property, such  funds to be held in trust at the  Bank of Montreal in Sechelt.  The second resolution, also  passed unanimously, stated that .  on receipt of letters of incorporation as a society, the founding committee to call another  public meeting for the purpose  of enrolling members in the society and the election of a  board of directors, ten or more  in number, representing ,the  whole Sunshine Coast area from  Port Mellon to Earl's Cove and  Egmont, with powers from the  date of such public meeting of  handling all matters related to  the raising of funds, the building and maintenance of senior  citizens homes and that with  the appointment of such directors the present founding committee will cease to function.  There were 70 members of  the OAPO present at this meeting and Canon Greene occupied  their attention for close to ten  minutes to place the resolutions  before them.

Sechelt's council at last Wednesday night's meeting decided  der a ten mill rate.     . '     *  When the vote was taken coun-j=  preferred research reporting  was fine. Much of the assigned work was not too valuable  he thought.  From among the audience  came the idea that responsibility in the home and at school  could be a big help. One speaker asked what had happened to  the former idea of study as a  discipline.  At the start of the meeting  copies of student views on  homework, were distributed.  Here are some of those views:  .;.*���'������..     * 7'*  For me, homework should be  a part of life. It does not necessarily have to be every day, but  that it" is balanced. Some days  you my have tons of it and then  the next day none. Teachers  should be wise to the fact that  making  large   assignments  for  the next day will possibly mean  hurried periods at home (with  unsatisfactory results) or children working long hours into the  night to finish. Therefore, children will not be as attentive in  school the next day. .  Homework should be the work  that has not been finished in  school hours plus (maybe) short  reading assignments that have  not been taken up, but will be  the next day.  There should be a limit to  homework; as, for the better  half of the day, children are in  school. When they come out they  want some time to themselves.  *fi rfi -j-  I don't think we should have  homework because it takes too  long to do. I,don't mind one or  two subjects a night, but not  four or five. I think we should  cut homework out for about a  couple of months and see if we  can do the work in class. If  we don't get it done in class we  could do it after school instead  of playing basketball and floor  hockey.  My honest opinion is that  homework is okay because it  gives you something to do. It  makes you think back, what  happened in math. It helps you  to remember things that you  take up in math. For instance if  you didn't have homework you  wouldn't think as much as you  this year" at yterr;^lls^ This "decision   came,-.. when   Councillor  Adele deLange suggested that  on a matter of principle she  would prefer to see the mill rate  raised and the surplus funds  left intact.  It was pointed out by Clerk  Ted Rayner that while the budget would include up to $2,500 of  surplus cash there was no indication that all budgeted funds  would be spent.  Chairman William Swain put-  lined public taxation which  would have to be provided this  year such as the school tax, municipal tax, garbage tax, fire  district tax and regional district  tax. All of these are not collected through the village but  they are taxes that have to be  paid.  Councillor Morgan Thompson  felt that with, only three payments left on the new municipal  hall that if the mill rate could  be kept at ten mills council  would have $5,000 available after the hall was paid for and un-  her- vote. in favor be' recorded?-  (See editorial on page two headed Economics in Sechelt. In this  editorial the two more payments  on the municipal hall should  read three more payments.)  During ( budget discussion it  was mentioned that five street  lights of the mercury vapor type  will be installed, two on Mermaid, two on Dolphin and one at  the western end of the waterfront boulevard.  Cpntiuing argument on assistance for the clerk resulted in  council deciding to advertise for  ��� such help. (The advertisement  for the same will be found on  page five under the heading  Help Wanted.)  There were two tenders for  the old Sechelt municipal hall,  one from Joe Benner at a price  of $300 and the other from D.  F. Henderson of Halfmoon Bay  at $75. Council decided Mr.  Benner made the best offer. He  has until mid-May to move it  and place the cheque in the  hands of the clerk.  f or'TMay 12,"13 'arid "15r The "pool  committee at a meeting last  week decided on those dates for  the area canvass. Two commercial firms, L & K Logging and  Palm Dairies have displayed  their confidence in the pool project by making contributions.  Don't forge!!!  Don't forget St. Mary's  Hospital Society meeting  Sunday starting at 2 p.m.  in the Legion hall at Sechelt. The meeting will be  informed that all directors  representing the Hospital  Improvement District have  been re-elected. Other reports will, be presented  along with the hospital financial statement and comments of the administrator.  Concert  Festival on May 7  Preparations for the May 7  Music Festival which 'began last  September are getting into high  gear now. Mr. Kurt Hoehne has  offered his sound equipment for  the performance. Although the  Elphinstone auditorium acoustics are better than the elementary school gymnasium they still  leave a lot to be desired and  Mr. Hoehne's experience and  help was one of the factors behind the success of that first  festival.  This year's festival will feature professional musicians and  singer from. Vancouver as well  as local talent and to give the  performance that professional  touch Mr. Tommy Lee, a former  stage manager of ��� Vancouver's  ���famous Theatre Under the Stars  will bring additional lighting  equipment and will be in charge  of stage management.  Continuing the idea of a correlating commentary to ' tie together individual items on the  program Mr. Gordon Inglis, the  chief CBC announcer will be  the narrator assisted by two lo  cal children. Canada's Centennial will naturally be the theme  of this year's program, and the  script is the work of Ray Hoi  brook of Gibsons, Gordon Inglis  and Tommy Lee.  Hoping   to   improve   on   last  year's organization the 600 seats  in  the  auditorium  will be reserved for ticket holders until  1:45 p.m.   Tickets  were  issued  to the parents of the 200 children who will be performing in  the choir and band. The committee hopes  that parents will  co-operate in returning any tickets they cannot use as the tickets for the remaining 200 seats  are going fast. This will mean  that some people will be disappointed, but that those who are  fortunate in getting tickets will  be able to enjoy the performance in more pleasant and 6afer  conditions than last year.  Dr.  Don Gibbard of the UBC music  department  met  the   combined  elementary school choirs for the  first time Saturday at their rehearsal.  He was very pleased  with their performance  Supplementing the coming  Music Festival, Mt. Elphinstone  Chapter No. 65 Order of the  Eastern Star, will sponsor a  variety concert, in Elphinstone  High school auditorium, Saturday, May 6 at 7:45 p.m.  This will be a strictly local  talent affair, involving student  performers from pre-school age  to teenage young people, and  drawn from the area between  Sechelt  and Port Mellon.  The entire proceeds from the  concert will be devoted to the  O.E.S. Cancer Fund. Admission  charges are low enough so that  whole families can attend and  hear singers, pianists, violinists,  elocutionists, and see Highland  dancing. Enjoy the evening, encourage the young talent, and  help a worthy cause by attending.  FASHION  SHOW  The Mount Seymour Kinsmen  Club and the B.C. Fashion industry are presenting a fashion  show featuring B.C. designers  at Bayshore Inn, Saturday, May  13. This will be followed by a  wine tasting party of B.C. wines.  A limited number of tickets are  available from Marie Cruice,  88.-9379 or Dorothy Tepper, 886-  2043  This year's school tax rate will be 30.63 mills, practically five  imills above last year, on a requisition seeking $1,312,368.  This tax will be broken down between Sechelt, Gibsons and the  rural area in the following manner:  Sechelt will collect $46,233 or 3.52 percent.  Gibsons will collect $73,339 or 5.58 percent.  The rural area will supply $1,192,796 or 90.90 percent.  This will be done on an assessed value for Sechelt of $1,507,851;  Gibsons, $2,390,671 and the rural area $38,943,508 for a combined  total assessment of $42,842,030.  Hillcrest seeks  to join village  Hillcrest Ave. residents have  petitioned Gibsons council to  become part of the village of  Gibsons. The petition was tabled  at Tuesday night's meeting for  study in connection with the  general extension of boundaries.  There are about 72 lots involved in the subdivision and the  chief objective- of the signers of  the petition is to get tied in  with the new village water supply. Chairman Wes Hodgson  said it was time council got  down to business of increasing  the size of the village.  Council decided to support the  school board's effort to get traffic control at School and North  roads at the Sunshine Coast  highway corner by agreeing .to  attend a meeting with highways  officials.  The medical clinic has decided to construct a new clinic on  the Sunshine Coast highway in.  vicinity of Sunnycrest Motel. A  letter from Dr. J. D. Hobson  acquainted council with this  fact. The letter,was tabled for  further consideration, The new  clinic: would be built some timfe;  within the next 12 months.  Mr. and Mrs. R. Fraser, North  Road, asked for a domestic water connection which council  turned down until village water  mains reached that area. Mr.  Buckhorn, Avalon Drive, sought  replacement of a dead end sign  to avoid traffic involvement in  a narrow road. Council learned  that hoodlums in autos were going the rounds tearing, down  signs with the use of a car and  chains. The Avalon Drive sign  will be replaced.  An application from Frank  Wyngaert for a business licence  to sell eggs, fertilizers, feed,  home furnishings and scrap metal was granted except for scrap  metal. Council preferred to  avoid granting scrap metal licences on main road property.  Scrap metal licensing could result in a used car lot appearance, which council did not favor.  Walter . Hendrickson of Gibsons Boat Works asked-what  was council's delay on an extension of his water lot in the  bay. He was informed council  wanted to get further detail before giving filial approval. He  said his dredging arrangements  were involved and he needed  some action. The legal end is in  the hands of officiate in Victoria :.\He-7-has already ordered a  float. costing $61,000. On receipt  of; a map or information from.  Victoria confirming the correct  position of the foreshore lease  council agreed to act promptly-  to help put Mr. Hendrickson.  Council plans to  review  the.  charge made on water connections   because   in   some   cases,  costs   of \ installation   have  exceeded the set fee of $50. A car-  parked ori the Municipal beach,  graS:se(_7l_rea, will have to be re-"  moved and its owner will be-  so. informed.  Parking-planning  in vicinity of the library area  will be.looked into by council.  The problem of the Corlett  property re-alignment is expected to be settled, Chairman Hodg  son reported.  Fire call  Fire completely destroyed an  old vacant building opposite  Reid's corner on the Sunshine  Coast highway early Wednesday. The alarm sounded at approximately 3 a.m. The fire department was prompt in arriving, the fire had engulfed the  entire building.  Firemen kept hose ready to  quell outbreaks in surrounding  grass and bush. The old home  formerly owned by Bob Ritchie  and later by Ernest F. Cart-  wright suffered a fire several  years ago. Since then it had  been left vacant.  Time!!  Change your clock Saturday night before turning out  the light.  Remember the simple formula, spring ahead ��� fall  back. This means put your  clock ahead in the spring  for fast time and turn it  back in the fall for standard  time.  FERRY CHANGES  Word reaching Gibsons Wednesday morning is that there  is a comprehensive change likely in the government ferry setup which will include an improved landing facility at Earl's  Cove  Mrs. Margaret Helen Whit-  worth, 90, was the guest of  honor on Tuesday when her  daughter, Mrs. J. T. Newman,,  entertained a ew friends at tea  at their home on Crow Road.  Mrs. Whitworth, a resident of  Roberts Creek for 50 years, was  presented with a Centennial  medallion by Mrs. Ruth Mitchell, acting on behalf of Mr.  J. Forbes, chairman of the Centennial committee. The committee also presented her with a  beautiful plant and corsage.  Flowers from John Galliford's  garden decorated the living  room.  Among the guests were Mrs.  Whitworths' nieces, Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Galliford. Also  Mrs. A. Heath who came to  Roberts Creek 45 years ago. Coast News, April 27, 1967.

Unify in Ihe Community gets things  Economics in   Sechelt  The suggestion that Sechelt's council dig into its surplus up to  $2,500 to keep the mill rate down came to light when Councillor  Adele deLange decided to test council on a matter of principle. She  proposed that the mill rate be increased and the surplus be left  intact. Council argued and came to the conclusion it- would be  best iri view of an increase in school taxation, coupled with other  forms of taxation, to keep the tax rate at ten mills.  Discussion provided the chief reason why council should not go  along with an increased mill rate. Examination of the budget for  this year revealed there would be $5,000 for the new municipal hall,  the second payment and only two more to come.  This is the only term debt the municipality has to contend with.  The municipal hall was constructed with a loan advanced by the  builder on a five year basis. If this arrangement had not been used  it could have meant the usual 20 year debentures which would have  been more costly. '       i  What the argument in council did reveal is that Sechelt will  have an item of $5,000 in its annual budget which will be paid off  in two year's time. With that budget maintained at the end of two  years, even on a ten mill basis,the $5,000 would still be there so  why add to the mill rate now? It would only build up a surplus and  resentment in the mind of the taxpayer.  At present there is no major work facing the, village. There are  ���some things which will have to be attended to in time which can  wait until the village hall has been paid for. This sounds like good  economics for Sechelt ratepayers. Considering that' Sechelt was  incorporated in February 11 years ago the appearance of the village generally and its careful financing speak- well for its future.  If its financial condition can be maintained and if things develop  faster than expected the municipality will be in an excellent position to obtain funds, when necessary^  Economics elsewhere  It does not need an expert in accountancy to reveal that what  is happening in British Columbia government financing is not  creating much happiness, if any, inside the province and is definitely not kidding anyone outside the province capable of analyzing the situation.  It is true that the levels of government in this province are in  a period of transition due to present growth and greater expansion  This is part of the problem but only a small part.  For several years now municipal, hospital and school officials  have been knocking on government doors repeatedly. Sometimes  the door would open and a grudging offer be made on a take it or  leave it basis, because you (have no other, choice.  It does appear odd that when a Social Credit cabinet minister  of health retires and another takes .over, that his successor should  find what he described as a situation that was taxing his capacity  to the limit. One can only wonder what would happen if other cabinet ministers resigned.  It is unbelievable that a Social Credit government which puts  the taxpayer on a pedestal and then throttles the services the taxpayers require, should be in such a dangerous position. Social  Credit was supposed to have solved our monetary ills. However  after some 14 years of Bennett Social Credit we have some of those  ills with us and they are not mental. One can guess or perhaps one  should say dream of what could be done in this province at the taxpayer level if the cash poured in the Peace River hydro was used  a bit closer to home.  Every taxpayer, Social Credit or otherwise should give complete support to municipal, hospital and school officials in their  fight for what is really due to them. They have a thankless task  under the present Bennett regime. It is time the taxpayer penetrated the fog created by the (homeowner grant and took stock of  the greater possibilities that can be accomplished iby less unorthodox financing. How many taxpayers are now paying more assessment taxes now than they were paying before the homeowner grant  existed?  COAST NEWS  19 YEARS IUI  Residents of Sechelt and summer visitors now have an opportunity to view the scenic  wonderland of Sechelt Inlet  from M.V.  Breeze.  Jim Veitch, of Sunset Hardware, has opened a Records  and Appliance Shop in Bal's  Block.  Victor Neilsen of Vancouver  officially opened    his    modern  bakery shop in the Sechelt Village Centre block.  The Sechelt Board of Trade,  will present Public Works Minister E. C. Carson with a brief  asking for definite road improvements.  Plans for construction of a  one-room unit of a consolidated  school at Madeira Park were  endorsed by representatives of  School District No. 46.  The Anglican and United  Church's general commission on  union has given encouragement  to local and regional meetings  of members of the two denominations for study and dialogue  leading to unity.  The commission, composed of  20 representatives of each denomination, also will approach  the , denominations' boards of  Christian education to ask that  information about both churches  and their ultimate union be included in the church school  curriculm.  The commission met March  29 for.the first time since the  United Church general council  approved the Principles of  Union last September. The Anglican Church gave its approval  at its General Synod in 1965.   .  The general commission now  takes over from the committees  of 10 which drew up the Principles of Union and will be responsible!   for    and    supervise  other commissions on oonstitu-  iftipnal, legal, doctrinal and  liturgical  matters.-  A fifth commission on The  Church in the World, proposed  by the United Church general  council, was approved by the  commission, subject to the approval of the Anglican Church..  President A. B. B. Moore of  Victoria University, Toronto,  and Most Rev. W. L. Wright of  Sault Ste. Marie, Archbishop of  Algoma and Metropolitan of  Ontario, were elected co-chairmen.  Rev. George Morrison of Vancouver, United Church minister,  and Dr. John Gwynne-Timothy,  Anglican layman and history  professor at the University of  western Ontario, London, were  named  vice-chairmen.  Co-secretaries are Rev. Ernest E. Long of the United  Church, and Rev. Canon Ralph  R. Latimer of the Anglican  Church. Both are from Toronto.

Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c^/o this newspaper.  We keep receiving queries  about a cooling off period in a  contract or agreement. It cannot be stated too often that  once a contract has been entered into there is no such thing  as a cooling off period. Either  the parties are bound contractually or they are not and there  is no half way about it or any  such thing as an interim agreement. ..  There are four essential parts  to a contract: 1. form, 2. offer,  3. acceptance, and 4. consideration or a seal. Form simply  refers to whether the contract  is in writing, by word or mouth,  or understood. Offer, someone  must offer to do something, for  example, to buy or sell a piece  of land. Acceptance, the person to whom the offer was  made must accept it. Consideration or seal, consideration usually means the payment of  money. A  contract under  seal  POINT  OF LAW  bu ~/t f^racUcina oLawyer  need have no consideration.  If any of these four elements  are missing, there is no contract, and if all these four elements are present, there is a  contract. '  There can, however, be a  waiting period after the offer���  in which the person making  the offer may change his mind.  Let us say sellor has offered  to sell his business to buyer  by a written offer���to remain  open for one month. If sellor  cools off he may cancel his offer at any time before acceptance. Alternatively, if sellor  wants time to consider, he could  have an offer drawn in which  buyer offers to buy the business  from him ��� setting out all the  terms ��� the offer to remain  open for, say, one month. If  buyer's signature can be obtained to this document���then  sellor would have one month  to consider! Sellor, of course,  takes a chance that buyer will  cancel his offer within the  month before his acceptance.  A lawyer should be consulted  re the wording of the offer, acceptance, and cancellation and  for the exact method of delivering these documents. A later  article will deal with the ef-.  feet of such document's passing  through the mail.  Minute message  In the book of the Revelation  of Jesus Christ we read: And  the living One; and I became  dead���Rev. 1:18.  This claim by Jesus Christ  as to His deity has truly been  ' substantiated by the best authenticated fact in history, His  resurrection. It refers not to  mere manifested life, but to life  inherent and underived. The  life here claimed by Christ is  life coeval with the creation of  the world, and which had an  eternal subsistence with the  Father before the world was.  It was the same eternal life  which was with the Father ���  John 1: 1 and 2.  It needs no other to uphold  it. It came from none, and is  sustained by none but itself.  Immortality may be imparted  to creatures, but God only has  it in and of Himself. When  Christ declares Himself to be  the Living One, He claims and  asserts a con-substantiality with  the self-existent God from  Whom all things proceed and  on Whom all creatures depend.  Yet, He became dead. With  our dull powers we cannot pry  into the depths of this divine  mystery. In the predetermined  councils of eternity, He, in the  Father's mind was crucified  from the foundation of the  world ��� Rev. 13:8. No man  could take away His life, and  He proved His deity again by  laying down His life and taking  it again. (John 10;  18).  In John 10:36 He says: I am  the Son of God. He that honors  Me, honors the Father. Doubt  Him and you dishonor God and  make Him a liar, for He testified, This is My Beloved Son.���  S. Cassells, Sunshine Coast Gospel Church.  Are you one?  Are you one of the eight out  of ten who drink coffee? If so,  you've probably wondered as  you've sipped your 5th cup, how  it affects your health. Here are  some answers from the American Medical Association's Today's Health:  One or two cups will raise the  temperature inside your stomach, make your heart beat faster, cause certain glands to become more active and force  your kidneys to work harder.  Fortunately, most of these effects wear off within an hour.  In moderation, coffee doesn't  make people nervous. But nervous people shouldn't drink excessive amounts of it since caffeine may effect them adversely.  Coffee seems to have some  effect on sleep. One experiment  showed that those who drank  two or three cups before retiring found it difficult to fall  asleep. But for others a single  cup helped them sleep better.  again on June 13 and 14. It  expected that its work will be  carried out over several years.  Members went on record as  encouraging across the nation  meetings between members of  the two churches for discussion,  study and dialogue on parish,  congregational, deanery, presbytery, conference and diocesan  levels on the general subject  of union of the two denominations.  The commission will welcome  reports on the findings of these  meetings together with sugges-  tons and questions, all of which  will be considered, vit stated.  Canada's four Anglican archbishops say they will not support any segment of their  church which organizes to oppose union with the United  Church of Canada, the Canadian  Churchman states in an article  this month.  The Anglican Church's national newspaper says the four  metropolitans have bluntly rejected any more to create what  one   called  a   schismatic   pro-  is gram within the church.  The. article says a loosely-  formed group known as Canadian Confirmed Anglicans will  seek support from Anglicans to  oppose implementation of the  Principles of Union drafted by  the two churches.  Most Rev. "H. H. Clark of  Winnipeg, prdmate of the Anglican ChUrch, ��� said "If I ��� have  any second thoughts j they are  about the difficulties we shall  encounter in' this adventure."  Most Rev. A. H. O'Neil of  Fredericton, said he supported  the Principles of Union when  they were passed by the Anglican Church in Vancouver in  1965.  Most Rev. W. L. Wright of  Sault Ste. Marie, said he is  a strong advocate of Christian  unity movement wheh, he said,  will eventually triumph.   .  Most Rev. H. E. Sexton of  Victoria, B.C., said Anglicans  know there are problems to. be  faced in union but that an effort must be made - to work  them  out.  N.

Advt Supplementary allowance argument political badminton  In connection with the payment of the provincial government supplementary allowance  of $30 per month to old age security cases now receiving an  additional $30 guaranteed income supplement from the federal government, the following  department of social welfare  press release has been issued  through Hon Mrs. Isabel Dawson, Mackenzie MLA:  PENINSULA  SEPTIC TANK  SERVICE  PROMPT EFFECTIVE  ON-THE-SPOT SERVICE  CAL__-r  886-9533 or 886-2230  (after 5:30)  In order to ensure, that all  cases receiving the provincial  government supplementary social allowance will not have  their allowance affected in any  way by payment of the federal  government guaranteed income  supplement of $30 per month,  the provincial government made  representations to the federal  government to exempt the guaranteed (income supplement of  $30 as income when determining  eligibility for the provincial government supplementary allowance.  This was refused by the federal government which stated  that we must include their payment of $30 as income when  determining the amount of the  provincial government supplementary allowance to be paid  to recipients; If we did not do  so then they would not continue  to share in the provincial government supplementary allowance.

This will  require a review of the financial  circumstances of approximately  22,000 recipients. Each case will  be assessed on a needs basis  taking into account the above  maximum requirements.  When the federal government  issues cheques covering payment of the guaranteed income  supplement retroactive to Jan.  uary 1, 1967, no person will be  eligible for the present provincial government supplementary  allowance because Of the increase in their income that  month.  However, even though the federal government will not contribute, the government of the  province of British Columbia is  prepared to continue paying its  share of the provincial government supplementary allowance  in March or April as the case  may be to those persons who  who would have been eligible for  this supplementary allowance  had they not received the federal government retroactive  payment.  In subsequent months persons  who are eligible for the provincial government supplementary  allowance will have their needs  met up to a maximum of $135  per month for a single person  and $240 per month for a married couple. The majority of  persons will enjoy an increase  in their total monthly income.  GILMORE'S VARIETY SHOP  SEWING NEEDS, BUTTERICK PATTERNS - Sechelt, Ph. 885-9343  Perraulfs  viewpoint  Ray Perrault, leader of the  Liberal party in British Columbia speaking on April 18 in Vancouver said the following in  connection with the B.C. government policy on pension payments:  During. the last provincial;  election campaign, the premier  of this province pledged that  regardless of the benefits received under the federal goy-  enment's guaranteed income  plan, the supplementary allowance paid to B.C.'s pensioners  (a maximum of $30 a month-  financed 50% by Ottawa) would  continue to be paid.  The premier, once again, has  bro_.i.n h:_ word.  Letters. are going out to thou-  . sands of pensioners to inform  them that. their supplementary  allowances will either be reduced or eliminated. Ottawa is  made the scapegoat.  Under the terms of the new  federal Canada Assistance plan,  the fact is that senior citizens  of British Columbia, instead of  receiving an estimated total of  $3.2 million a year in extra  federal aid beyond the $75 a  month universal pension will  now receive an estimated total  of over $20 million in extra aid  ��� an increase in aid to senior  citizens of at least $17 million  a year. This $20 million amount  includes the federal guaranteed  income bonus of $30 a month  to at least 42,000 British Columbians (as of March 31, 1967 ���  with more applications now being processed) and partial  bonuses to at least another 28,-  000 (as of March 31, 1967). The  final figures with respect to the  number of British Columbians  to be helped under the federal  plan will be considerably higher  than the total of 72,000 as of  March 31st, last.  Prior to the establishment of  the Guaranteed Income plan,  23,000 old age security pensioners in British Columbia received full or partial supplementary allowances���financed 50%  by the federal government.  Ottawa has now accepted  full responsibility for these 23,-  000 people and an additional  47,000 (as of March 31 last) will  receive all or part of the supplementary bonus ��� with not  one cent of expense to the provincial treasury.   .  Beyond this vast increase in  federal aid to our senior citizens, the federal government is  prepared to pay half of any  additional grants to our senior  citizens where need exists. The  federal government's suggested  criteria of need were established by the Canadian Welfare  council, but the provincial government interprets, determines  and applies the standard of  need.  . Let me repeat, if any person  receiving the federal universal  pension of $75 a month together  with the guaranteed federal income supplement of an extra  $30 requires aid beyond the  basic figure of $105 a month,  Ottawa will continue to. pay  half of the necessary additional  amount in conjunction with the  province of British Columbia.  It should be emphasized, however, that this Social Credit  government which boasts of its  "debt-free" position and its  huge surpluses ��� may pay to  our senior citizens, independently, any bonus it wishes, without  any means test, and without  affecting in any way the federal government's guaranteed  .income supplement.  The Canada Assistance plan  legislation passed by the fed  era! goverment specifically exempts social assistance payments ��� paid    by provinces or  municipalities as income when  establishing a pensioners' income position.  Totally apart from politics, as  a British Columbian I resent  the continuing wilful distortion  of facts by this Social Credit  government. It is obvious that  under the guise of alleged federal discrimination against British Columbia, Bennett and his  cabinet- are moving to reduce  their contribution to the welfare of senior citizens. The  money they hope to save because of massive aid to B.C.'s  pensioners flowing here from  Ottawa will be diverted into  the premier's own pet projects.  We saw the same thing happen when the federal government assumed 50% of the cost  of Hospitjal Insurance. Social  Credit proceeded to reduce its  percentage contribution to hospital care in this province.

HODGSON)  Following the April meeting,  members of the Women's Institute visited Gibsons museum.  Once inside the museum, which  is in the basement of the Municipal Hall, time turned backwards. Wonderment was expressed at the great collection  accumulated through the enthusiasm and endeavour of Mr.  Les Peterson of Gibsons.  Immediately insiide, stand the  once shiny large vats used at  the cannery in the days when  Gibsons strawberry jam had a  wide market. There is a collection of old farm inmplements,  and the smaller gardening tools,  and an ox yoke used locally in  the logging days of long ago.  A wooden frame plouh holds  a fascination, one must give it  a gentle -push before passing  along to the next exhibit.  Against the wall, standing higher than a man, are the forge  bellows used by a Finnish settler in the community in those  early days.  The archeology minded finds  delight in the variety of rock  formations and ancient stones  displayed. Naturally the home  makers interest centred on kitchen utensils. They viewed with  some amazement an early butter churn, tiny milking stools,  flat irons almost too heavy to  lift, and mentally compared  these to the feather weight  smooth gliding irons of today.  The round wooden contraption  with the long iron handle was  the modern washing machine of  the day.  The kitchen status symbol at  the turn of the century, the knife  cleaning machine was there also. The pride of the parlor, a  large horn gramophone complete with cylinder records  stands in one corner, perhaps  stirring nostalgic memories of  winter evenings of long ago.  There is the treadle sewing  machine on which Mrs. George  Gibson, wife of the founder of  Gibsons Landing turned out perhaps miles of stitching for her  family and friends back in the  1800s. The machine is blackened  not by age, but by the fumigating acids used when a smallpox  epidemic swept this part of the  country.  Admired, but in no way envied for today's living, was the  glamorous gown with its frills  and rich laces of 10.0 years ago.  One wall holds photos of the  early settlers of the district, and  great interest was shown by the  visitors in pointing out relatives  and friends now passed on. Pictures of the very active dramatic group stirred nostalgic memories of past winter evenings.  Country living would have been  a lonesome existence without  the enthusiasm and community  spirit of that gallant little band  of people, . working ' under the  dim lights of coal oil lamps and  the   difficuty  of  transportation.  It had been on interesting visit, and as the "group left for  their push button homes to prepare the evening meal on their  push button stoves, they pondered ��� were they really the  good old days?

Still if you  only have a small amount of  homework you'll be able to finish it correctly. It might even  let you do your work better than  having a lot of noises. I thinfc  homework is a good thing even  if it does take an hour or so  away from your time at home.  If we had no homework we  might slip down in our schooling. All I can say is homework  helps us in our responsibility  for later years of life.  * ��� ��� ���  I like homework only if we  don't get a lot of it. Homework  helps us get better marks on  our report cards. When we get-  tests we should take books home  and study for the test. If we get  our homework done before it is  too late we can still have time  to play.  '.- ... j;:  I 'think homework is not too  bad because if we did not take  any homework home our parents would be wondering what  we are doing in school. Homework helps our marks go up in  Work Habits. '  The kind of homework I like  best is Arithmetic and if we did  not do math homework it would  be slower and would take more  time to finish the Arithmetic  book. So we do need homework.

Once again it is time for the  Solarium Junior Leagues' annual appeal for funds. This year  the Solarium Spring Shower  will be held from April 14th to  May 14th. This is a province  wide appeal which is conducted  in the form of a mail campaign.  This Spring Shower is for the  purpose of raising money for  the Queen Alexandra Solarium  for Crippled Children. This year  the goal is to raise $15,000.  The Appeal child this year is  Greg, 5 years of age. Greg has  been in the Solarium since July  5, 1965 (2 years). He is just one  of the many children who have  had Legg-Perthes disease,  which affects the hip joint. This  disease, in many cases in time,  may be cured.  Arts council  opens gallery  The Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in the Credit Union building  in Sechelt will ibe open Saturday,  April 29. The former Sechelt  Taxi office has been transformed into an attractive gallery  and showcase for the skills and  talents of craftsmen and artists  living on the Sunshine Coast.  With so many creative people  in the district lack of exhibits  is not anticipated. The Arts  Council already has the support  of many painters, photographers  and ceramists, lapidarists and  skilled craftsmen of the Indian  community.  Much of the inspiration and  hard work which has gone into  the transformation of two ordinary small rooms into a gallery  which will become a show piece  for the whole district has been  the work of Cuyler and Sheila  Page who have given many  hours from their candle-making  business.  The Arts Council acknowledges with appreciation donations  of various sorts and help from  the Roberts Creek Credit Union,  Parker's Hardware, Miss Orm-  orod of Sechelt, Mrs. Garnett  of Selma Park, Mrs. R. Finlay-  son and Mrs. T. Meredith, Gibsons.  Drop into the centre and see  what your neighbors are doing.  Plans are for a changing display in the gallery and an increasing variety of work for sale  in the showroom. The Arts Council hopes to be able to announce  special displays and exhibitions  on a monthly basis. Present  plans based on volunteer help  will find the place now open on  Friday and Saturday.  nminuniwnuuiuMunimuramnuttmnnnummnnuumnuii  Deadline!

Jim and Phyllis Gurney, the  youthful operators and owners  of Gibsons latest and flourishing light industry ��� The Gibson Coach, have the answer!  Located well1 lip the Cemetery  road, in the bush is a modern,  up-to-date assembly shop set up  by the Gurneys for the production of 10 to 12 roadworthy trailers ��� the Gibson Coach Vacationer. Already four of these  compact, well equipped units  are on the assembly line in the  frame-up stage and the tight  production schedule undertaken  by Jim and Phyllis, practically  on their own, with a bit of part-  time help from members of the  family, is well underway.  On completion, each unit will  be moved out to Burnaby where  Norman Taylor of Taylor Trailer Sales is enthusiastic concerning the Gurney-built Vacationer.  Mr. Taylor has the exclusive  franchise for the sale and servicing ��� of these locally manufactured units 7  How did all this come about?  When the Gurneys, both residents of Gibsons, were married  three years. ago, housing, as it  is to all young marrieds, presented a perplexing problem,  particularly as they would be  moving around quite a bit. It  was Jim's father, a retired trailer builder, who came up with  the suggestion that they build  their own mobile home on  wheels. Jim, a draughtsman had  the plans for their first trailer  off the board in jig time and  they were soon on the road.  That was in 1964. Next year  Jam and Phyllis built their second trailer, a bit more compact  this time and then came the big  cing  JIM ANB PHYLLIS Gurney, hard at work producing their new  Vacationer line of trailers at their plant on Cemetery road.  idea They had built two trailers  and lived in them. Why not go  into the business?  Came 1966 and with further  modifications came the prototype of their present model,  th�� Gibson Coach Vacationer, a  compact 1300 lb. moderately  priced, well equipped popular  size family trailer. Four units  rolled off the line after a late  start that summer and were  readily sold. This season dn  their new workshop, they plan  for the completion of ��� ten or  twelve of the same model along  with a dozen or so truck canopies.  Jim Gurney, a youthful 26  years old and' Phyllis, more than  a bit under that, and much too  dainty and feminine in appearance to be engaged in-a man's  operation, already have their  plans for the production of 30  units next year. Twenty will be  the popular Gibson Coach Vaca  tioner and 10 of a new and  somewhat; larger Gibson Coach  . Holiday trailer. They have also  projected an additional super  all-year-round family model, the  Gibson Coach Tourist, preliminary plans of which are now  on Jim's draughiting board.  Another item or two for 1968  is the enlargement of the present Gibson Trailer plant to include separate welding, paint  and sitorage areas and also the  employment of at least two  others on full time seasonal employment.  Call it what you like. . .star-  struck, eternal optimise of  youth. Whatever it is, the Gurneys go about their business of  turning out. a good product in  a quiet, but fully determined,  sort of way that indicates, with  a bit of continuing luck, they'll  be tops in the business of building mobile trailer homes for  many   years   to   come.  Sechelt Peninsula! Where is it?  The following letter has been  received by various news media  in the Vancouver area. The letter explains itself:  Editor: May I suggest to  . members of the entire news  media in Vancouver and its  environs that before they proceed further in discussing  coastline areas just outside  Vancouver, that they peruse a  map.  The map would not have to  contain much detail because the  object; of their study would be  simple, so simple that they  will no doubt be astounded at  their ignorance.  If they will study the map of  the Howe Sound and Sunshine  Coast line around to Jervis Inlet they should arrive at an  inescapable discovery. It would  be that Sechelt Peninsula  starts at Sechelt and its coastline runs north-westerly towards  Jervis   Inlet   taking   in  such places as Halfmoon Bay,  Madeira Park and Pender Harbor then turns at Earl's Cove,  ���around past Egmont and back  through the Skookumchuk to  Porpoise Bay. From there it.  is a walk of less than a mile to  the Georgia Strait side of Sechelt Peninsula.  After having done this and  decided to leave it engraved on  their minds perhaps they will  forever  refrain  from including  Beauty  hints  John Barnes  See me for your  USED  VOLKSWAGENS  1960 V.W.

Phone  COIXECT  876-9811  By LYNN CARTER  Q. Just what causes whiteheads on the skin, and how  can I treat them?  A. These are small fatty de-  ' posits, usually associated with  dry skin. Massage the affected  skin while you are cleansing it.  A beauty-grain massage is excellent. In time, the whiteheads,  will come to the skin's surface where they can be rolled  out easily!  Q. What can I do about unpleasantly clammy and damp  hands, caused by nervous perspiration?  A. An occasional quick spray  with a deodorant and perspirarit  will temporarily do away with  this annoyance.... . . or at least  reduce it to the point of sparing you embarrassment.  Q. What type of beauty pack  or mask is especially good for  an oily skin?  A. Fuller's earth and witch  hazel, mixed to a smooth paste.  ��� Q. How should eye shadow  be applied?  A. Over your powder, which  covers the entire upper lid,  draw or blend on the eye  shadow color of your choice,  from the centre of the lid up  and out, toward the tip of the  eyebrow. Try to keep the color  light and blend to almost nothing at the edges of the upper  sweep. Then pat on a little face  powder over the shadow to set  its color.  Q. How can rouge be employed to help cover up crow's feet?  A. By using it in a small triangle, well blended, that extends from the corner of the  eyebrow to the outer corner of  the eye, and back about a half-  inch.  Port Mellon, Langdale, Hopkins Landing, Granthams, Gibsons, Gower Point, Roberts  Creek, Wilson Creek, Davis  Bay and Selma Park in the  area known as Sechelt Penin-  -Hsula.    . - >-^.-7   .. v.,. ;:  By no stretch of the imagination can Sechelt Peninsula contain name places not in the  area of Sechelt Peninsula. Perhaps it would be feasible to include name places not on the  peninsula in an area known  as Mt. Elphinstone. district because all of them are at the  foot of Mt. Elphinstone, all the  way from Port Mellon to Selma  Park.  It is to be hoped that members of the news media will  not spurn this lesson in the  geography of the area many of  them know so well? Quite a  number spend weekends somewhere in the area. ��� Fred  Cruice, editor and publisher of  the Coast News, Gibsons (not  on Sechelt Peninsula).  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. Is it considered proper to  repeat a person's name when  you are acknowledging an introduction?  A. Not only proper but practical as well. Many . persons  have trouble remembering the  names of people to whom they  are introduced. Repeating the  name, as, "How do you do, Mrs.  Fillmore," helps to imprint the  name on one's memory, and  indicates too that you are paying attention to the introduction.  Q. What amount of tip is it  customary to give a bellboy  who brings a telegram to your  hotel room?  A. Not less than twenty-five  cents.  Q. At a banquet recently  when I was served a cup of  coffee filled to the very brim,  rather than risk spilling some  of it by lifting the cup, 1 bent  over and took a few sips from  the cup where it rested on its  saucer. I have since been told  this was poor manners. Was it?  A. Indeed it was! In a case  lake this, use your spoon to dip  out a few sips of coffee to the  point where you can safely lift  the cup.
