Here is the letter received, by  Miss Adele de Lange who was  one   of   the   active   committee  which organized the opposition .  to Mr.  Anderson's application:  "In reply to your letter dated  March 10, 1967, I would advise  you that the application of Wes  ley John Anderson to lease certain unsurveyed Crown foreshore has-now been disallowed  by the department as not being  in the public interest.  "The department is now investigating the possibility of establishing a recreational reserve  in this area and the land, inspector in Vancouver is being requested to make , a thorough  .study to ascertain the area  which should be set aside.

It will be of the latest design  and contain all necessary equipment for good fire fighting in  this area.  This new truck is the result of  the recent formation of the Gibsons Fire Protection District,  which takes in the area from  Langdale to the Seaview. Ceme  tery, excluding the village.  The money for the payment  of the truck has been amortized  over a period of 16 years, which  means the 1.07 mill rate which  we started with, will remain  the same. This is approximately  five to six dollars per average  home, which is the same amount  that was donated before the  formation of the distract.  The low fire insurance rates  within this district are the direct  result of the fire fighting equipment on hand, and are less'  than a third of.the average unorganized district. Delivery of  the truck is expected some time  in October.  Cross shines from Keats Is.  There were many in Gibsons  startled to see what appeared to  be a .laming [cross on the bluff  north of Keats Island wharf.  Thoughts .swung to some Klan  activity but it was,nothing like  that.  It was the realization of an  idea presented to the area Ministerial association by Sam  Fladager, former councillor of  Gibsons. He suggested an illuminated cross on Georgia Heights  facing the mountains. However  the Ministerial association decided on Keats Island.  The Ministerial association includes Rev. J. Henry Kelly,  Anglican, president; Rev. Don  Park, Pentacostal, vice-president; Rev. A: F. Willis, Baptist,  dean of Keats Camp, secretary-,  treasurer; Rev. Barry Jenks,  Anglican, Sechelt, Rev; Murray  Cameron, United Church, Gibsons ''and Rev. W. S. Ackroyd,  Madeira Park. .  On receiving permission from  the Baptist authorities, a work  crew, including Ed Anderson'  and his teenage son, Rev. Mr.  Kelly and daughter Barbara-  along with Rev. $_r. Willis scaled the slippery 250 foot height  and erected a 16 x 8 ft. cross il  luminated with 50 red lights.  They retraced their ascent down  to ground level laying a 300 ft.  power line to the nearest cottage  from where they could obtain  power.  The keeper of the cross on  the bluff is Rev. Mr. Willis of  the Baptist" camp. It will be  used on.special occasions only.-  ����imuimiiuimu��ui��u��>ninimnnimmiumi��imu��u����ii>.av  To plant tree  As a Centennial project, the  Women's Institute of Canada  were asked by their federated,  council to purchase and plant  a flowering crabapple tree. This  the local Institute has done and  given it to the Village to be  planted in Gibsons Park on  March 31.  The W.I. will hold a Spring  tea and bake sale at the cottage  on S. Fletcher Road. From the  proceeds a donation will be  made to the Gibsons library.  At, the conclusion of the next  regular meeting on April 18,  members will pay a visit to the  museum.  *_v"  -��  HID board  to remain  lve  Hon.

The  pioneers were toasted by Magistrate A. D.Johnston. He mentioned the fact that two were  native Indians, the others coming from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairie provinces and British Columbia.  Mrs. ��� Dawson presented each  medal with a word of congratulation and was later thanked1 by  Mrs., Alfred August.  ( Miss- A. de- Lange on behalf  of the Centennial Committee  presented Mrs. Dawson. with a  gift to commemorate the occasion.

Council  appeared to be satisfied with  the present collection and had  no desire for a change until a  basic regional cost analysis was  provided.  Frank Wyngaert by letter asked council to allow a sign directing the public to the location of the museum. Council referred to last year's decision on  this which granted placing of a  sign at the post office corner  plus a directional sign closer  to the museum location beneath  the municipal hall.  Chelkwelp Water board, covering nine permanent and some  summer residents just outside  the north end of the village ask  ed for an improved water supply as soon as council could arrange it. In this case the village .  AN  ARTS  CENTRE  The advice to jump in the  deep end if you want to swim  is being heeded by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council. Instead of  talking wishfully about an ambitious arts complex sometime in  the future the Arts Council will  open a small centre in the former Sechelt Taxi Office in the  Credit Union building. This has  been made possible by a generous donation for the project by  a resident who wishes to remain  anonymous.  The Arts Council plans to use  the centre as a show case for  local artists and craftsmen, it  will be a place to relax and chat  would sell water only. The request was turned over to the  water chairman. The matter of  rates may have .to be arranged  by the Public Utilities Commission.  The problem of water from  the post office paved exit will  be turned over to the government department of public  works to instal a grating across  the drainage area. Council is  awaiting a reply.  The request from council for  a fire hydrant pipe on the wharf  to suck up water in the event of  a dangerous fire is being considered by the department of  public works, a letter to council stated.  Clerk David Johnston was  authorized to attend the Municipal Administrator's conference  May 25, 26 ind 27 in Victoria.  Regional administrators will  also attend and it is expected  numerous problems between  both types of administrations  will be discussed.  A. Barnes, Gower Point Road,  appeared before council protesting two driveway entrances to  property next to him and also  the construction of a 12 ft. high  garage which he maintains is  blocking his view. Council decided to check bylaws to see  what can be done 'at the next  meeting of council. As council  did not review this building permit the chairman requested a  review of all 1967 building permits.  Chairman Wes Hodgson proposed that a stone cairn with a  copper plate on it be prepared  to commemorate the donor of  the present Kinsmen Park. The  proposal was turned over to  Councillor Ken Goddard for action.  Word from Mon. Mrs. Isabel  Dawson, provincial government  minister without portfolio, states  that reports that under the new  regional district hospital scheme  the Sunshine Coast Hospital Improvement district will be disbanded, are incorrect  Hon. Mrs. Dawson announces  she will be in Gibsons, Friday,  March 31, for a meeting in the  Anglican Parish Hall starting at  8 p.m.  The H.I.D. under the new regional district hospital plan will  continue as a unit for this area.  According to information from  Hon. Mrs. Dawson, the only  change that is involved concerns  financing only and that with the  province being divided into a  number of districts for hospital  assessment purposes only such  financing will spread hospital  costs over a greater assessment  area. -  Until a copy of the measure as  it passed the legislature is available a clear understanding of  the government's intention is-  not available.  In connection with this issue  the following letter was received Monday by the Coast News:  - Editor:     Your    editorial    of  -' March-2 pointed out very clear-  7%^ a-warning of trouble ahead:  for St. Mary's H.I.D. if the present regional district is broaden-  .  en. However nowdt appears 'that:'  the "wait and see" attitude has:  given  the government time ta  pass this new legislation. It is to  *��e hoped -that'.' enough protests  ; 7\wll7;be.'.written to Mrs. Dawson  :-- _unl"Mr;1>an Campbell ;jo prevent the order in council "-being  signed when parliament reconvenes on April 3. The ratepayers  of Columbia-'Shuswap wired Robert. Strachan on March 6 voicing  their  disapproval;   perhaps  this  district will still be heard  and  St.  Mary's  H.I.D.  will be  able   to  opt   out   and   continue  the excellent job that has been  done here.  ���Mrs. I. Green.  Auxiliay  for band  A parent auxiliary to support  the district band and orchestra  has been formed with Mr.  George Ruggles as chairman.  Other members of the executive  are secretary-treasurer, Mrs. M.  West, communications chairman  Mr. Frank Yates, transportation  Mr. D. R. Barclay, social chair-  .man, Mrs. L. Hume, program  chairman Mr. Charles English,  and Mrs. M. Hately and Mrs.  T. Hume.  The auxiliary will give financial aid and guidance to the  . band and orchestra, help to provide instruments for beginners  and plan for the time when the  band will want to .become a  marching band complete with  uniforms Also to consider projects which are a part of the  band and orchestra educational  program and to discover and  foster talent. Plans for a music  camp weekend and ways of  raising money are already under consideration.  PIONEER LUNCHEON  The joint Halfmoon Bay and  Redrooffs Road Centennial committee is planning a luncheon  at the Winning Post, Ole's Cove,  Sunday, April 2 to honor pioneers of the area. Mr. L. J. Wallace, general chairman of the  Canadian Confederation Centennial committee of British Columbia has agreed to attend and to  present the Pioneer medallions.  Eleven pioneers have so far accepted the invitation to the  luncheon. 2     Coast News, March 30, 1967.  rs  Public education wide open for Indians  ����� /  "They certainly compete for business... don't they y[j  Phone 886-2622       P.O.

On Dec. 15, 1951, ratepayers of Gibsons voted 162 in favor and  45 against bylaw 93 covering an expenditure of $50,000 for an improved water service. The bond issue covering 20 years carried an  interest rate of 4^ percent.  This bond issue will be retired April 1 with the final payment  of $4,500 which means the life of the issue was 15 years. Money  from this bond issue furnished the village with a reservoir on  Rocky (now School) road. It also resulted in water distribution  mains increasing to 8,000 feet resulting in a possible 660 consumer  water connections, practically doubling the number of water services to villagers.  In April, 1952, Gibsons had a population under the 1,000 mark.  Now it is close to li500. The 1952 expanded water supply was to  have been sufficient for the village for a few years. It has been  good for 15 years. ���  For the lifetime of the bond issue the revenue from water  consumption except in few instances paid for the bond issue and  interest rate. It was less than the $70,745 forecast when the issue  was put on the market.  Citizens of Gibsons should be commended on their achievement  and they in turn should be grateful for the type of members they  elect on their councils, members who see that the water system is  maintained so it can pay its way. j  With the cleaning up of the old 1952 water debentures the citizenry is now faced with a $113,000 expansion to the water system  which it is estimated will service up to 3,000 persons. With the enlarging of water mains from the water source, it will mean quite  a number of water users will have a chance to be tapped in on the  water supply and thus increase revenue in that department.  Gibsons has been fortunate that its growth has been fairly  steady without putting serious strain on the various village services. However one can hardly plaice a time limit on when the coming enlargement of the water system will.be. sufficient. There is  no telling when pressures from incoming residents will begin to.be  felt. It will take a few years but it should not be regarded as a sufficiency for the next 15 years. Perhaps ten years from now we may  get the same cries experienced this last three or four years, that  something will have to be done to increase the water supply. Maybe  by that time an area water board will be in control and we may  be able to purchase water from that board and be concerned only  /with the distribution within an expanded village of Gibsons.  Some day we'll try it  Walking is a form of exercise in which one foot is placed in  front of the other and the process repeated an indefinite number  of times. Competent authorities have declared it is one of the best  forms of muscle utilization ��� especially for those who have come  within hailing distance of middle age.  However, as with many definitions, the description does not  cover the total situation. There are many sub-species, variations  and individual differences among walkers. There's the man who  carries his back like a ramrod; there's the man who attempts to  balance a protruding front by leaning backward. Some, anxious to  arrive at the store for possible cigarettes or a bit of hamburg, lean  far forward, with their legs and feet trying desperately to catch  up with the body. There's the middle of the sidewalk addict who  makes it hard for a person to pass; and always there's a group of  ladies who hold a conference on the sidewalk ��� usually flanked by  baby carriages and shopping bags. Yet, walking is good, wholesome, salutary exercise. Sometime we must try it. ���(Contributed)  COAST NEWS  19 YEIRS 11,11  Gibsons PTA held a social  evening in the school hall. The  program included folk dancing  by grades 5 to 8.  On Feb. 14, the PTA raised  $70.35 from their Valentine  dance. The funds will be used  to buy an encyclopedia for the  high school.  In a recent transaction the  Summit General Store in West  Sechelt changed hands. Mr. A.  Hanson and his sister Mrs.  Hartman, sold out to Mr. and  Mrs. J. Lund of New Westminster.  A contest among high school  students was sponsored by the  Sechelt Improvement association for essays for and against  incorporation  as  a  village.  Miss Marchant has started an  after- school .hours recreation  class at Halfmoon Bay.  Minister of Indian Affairs and  Northern Development, Hon.  Arthur Laing, says the country  is winning the long up hill battle  to get all Indian children into  ���school.'  Mr. Laing said his department  regards its educational program  as the most vital and effective'  single effort being put forth, and  one that will be the prime mover in resolving the problems  which have beset the Indian  people.  'Speaking in Vancouver to the  ���convention of the National Association of Principals and Administrators of Indian Residences, Mr. Laing said Canada's Indian educational program1 is one  of the finest of its kind operating anywhere in the world. -  "Any Indian who can achieve  passing marks can go to any  level of adult education," he  said. "Money need not stand in  his way. The department will  pay his tuition and it will pay  him a living allowance for training in any of the universities,  technical colleges, vocational  schools, or other institutions of  learning."  The minister noted that in  1945 there were 16,000 Indian  children enrolled in schools.  "Today," he said, " 62,000, or  95 percent of all Indian children  of school age are in school."  Mr. Laing produced some further startling figures when he  pointed out that there were only  100 Indian children attending  high school in 1945, whereas  today there are more than 5,000.  The minister said that part of  this story of success lies in the  appropriations for the Indian Affairs branch. The branch budget  in the fiscal year ending in 1946  was $4,573,000. The appropriation for 1966-67 is $98,600,000,  less than five percent of which  goes for administration.  In   spelling   out   .the   department's educational program, Mr  Laing said one of the goals is  to  provide  kindergarten  training for all Indian children. "This  is essential," he said, "because  25  percent  of  Indian  children  starting school have no working   knowledge   of   English   or  French, and if they are to carry  out   their   schooling   on   equal  terms with other children, they  must   be   given   this   working  knowledge    before   they   start  grade one." This he called "Operation Head Start,"  and said  that within four years the bulk  of Indian pre-schoolers will be  receiving kindergarten training.  The minister also praised the  role  of television in  educating  the Indian community by teaching   children   the   English   or  French    language,    introducing  them  to  the  folklore  of other  children, and acquainting them  with the world.  He announced a program for  supplying television sets to all  Indian schools and hostels situated wherever a television signal is available. ,''7'7 ���"���';��� ;7  . Speaking in Calgary to a meet  ing of the Men's Canadian Club,  Mr. Laing said that-fundamentally the problem of the Indian  people is that of a gropp whose  way of life has remained relatively unchanged in a society  which has changed radically.  Over the years circumstances  have forced them into a state  of dependency.  "It is one of our principal  aims to restore to the Indian  people the dignity of permitting  them to manage as much of  their business as they feel able  to undertake and to encourage  them in every way to extend  that commitment until they are  self-sufficient," he said.  Mr. Laing-pointed out that a  .primary task is to bring the  Indians' physical environment  up to standard. This, with the  full help of the Indian community, is well under way. A further aim is to foster self-government on reserves and to develop  the talents of leadership among  the Indian people and encourage  positive leadership training  through adult education facilities.  The bulk of the Canadian community has a role to play in  helping the Indian people achieve cultural self-realization.  There is, he said, more to do  than merely deplore the present  situation and think that responsibility ends with placing the  blame on the Department of Indian Affairs.  The minister called upon the  assistance of specific groups  within the community. He urged  Canadian employers with operations in the remote areas- to ���  consult with the Indian leaders  in their province and to work  out employment arrangements  beneficial to everyone, that  would avoid the encouragement  of dependent status.  "Our regional officers are available to discuss with companies' personnel officials what can  best be done to help both the  employer and the Indian people.  Bear in mind that while there  are Indians who are capable of  doing almost any job in Canada,  tfierte are some jobs at which Indians will excel," said Mr.  Laing.  The business community has  always been willing to make its  specialist skills available for  the good of the community. As  the Indian Department's Reserve Opportunity Program gets  operational, the help of businessmen will be needed.  The minister also urged the  trade union movement to consult with his department. It is  essential, he said, that Indians  should not be regarded as a pool  of cheap labor. Part of the  equality  sought,  in  which  the  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FO!  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.  Many questions have been  asked regarding how long a  person has to sue, before the  claim is outlawed.  This is what is known as the  limitation period. There is a  limitation period for almost  every type of legal action���anywhere from two days to twenty  years. The reason for limitation  periods is that evidence becomes more unreliable as time  passes���witnesses die, or move  away,  their memory fades.  The common limitation periods are: Action on a written  or oral contract such as a debt,  six years; action on a written  contract under seal, 20 years;  action in tort, a civil wrong  other than one arising out of  a contract, such as trespass  or   libel,   generally   six   years.  POINT  OF LAW  op -/r f^racticing. oLawytr  But: assault, battery, false imprisonment are four years; motor vehicle accidents, generally one year. Action under the  testators family maintenance  act, to attack a will, six months;  action under the Bulk Sales Act,  six months; to file a mechanics  lien 31 days; to enforce a judgment, 20 years; to prosecute in  a criminal action, generally, no  limitation period; action by an  infant, generally, after his 21st  birthday,' one year.  In the case of a debt, if the  debtor makes a part payment  or acknowledges the debt another six year period commences to run, from the date  of such part payment or acknowledgement.  The limitation period means  that a summons must be issued  out of the registry of the court  concerned (or other similar  step taken) within the period.  It does not mean that the matter must be tried by the court  and concluded within the period.  The periods as stated above  have exceptions and for specific  problems a lawyer should be  consulted.  unions can make a specific contribution, is equality of earnings..    ���  "It isn't only in employment  and. opportunity development  that problems arise," noted Mr.  Laing, "the Indian population  is growing fast. The infant mortality rate has dropped by 25%  in the period 1962-1966. Indians  born today have almost equal  life expentancy with all other  Canadians.  "The reserves no longer offer  ���an adequate base for the Indian  peoples. Like all Canadians, Indians are moving to urban areas  Here especially, in making the  adjustment to urban life, they  need the assistance of the non-  Indian community. There is thus  a role for all community groups  and service clubs to play in this  job."  Emphasizing the role of the  whole   commtmity,   Mr.   Laing  (Continued on Page 7)  N.

Local 297, Pulp Sulphite Union.  A study of Canadian autonomy  has been endorsed by a unanimous vote of 218 delegates to  the first all Canadian conference of the International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and  Papermill Workers of Canada.  The B.C. delegates spoke freely and convincingly on the problems that led up to this resolution. The only way we could  maintain unity in our organization was to find some means to  counteract the fight we have  with the P. & P. W. of C. Our  west coast rivals have made  their headway on the call for  nationalism, and greater autonomy within the international,  was the ammunition needed to  fight off the raiding union.  Eastern delegates spoke on  the similar problems they have  with the Confederation of National Trade Unions (a national  . trade union mainly located in  Quebec). They charged that the  C.N.T.U. started in Quebec under the guise of the church (at  that time they were called the  Canadian Catholic Confederation  of Labor). After that, the effect  dropped off, so they assumed  the nationalistic form of attracting trade unionists to their fold.  It was suggested that the committee look towards setting up  changes in the constitution so  as to emphasize the national  right of each and every country  united by our international union.  ...It was agreed that another  Canadian conference will be  held and resolutions will be accepted. This conference will be  held sometime in 1969 following the International, convention.  However a Canadian caucus will  1 beheld before the International  convention in 1968 and at that  time we can discuss the results  of the committee on Canadian  autonomy. Any Tirecommenda-  tionsfrom this committee will  go to the International convention.  I can only say that the work  and efforts of the B.C. delegation that succeeded in obtaining good relations with the central arid eastern delegates has  obviously done a great deal in  helping us achieve our goals on  a national basis. Friendly relations, common goals, and unity  in large numbers is the backbone of any strong union. As  long as we're on this road I.  have to question the reasons  anyone' might have for wanting  to - split our union.  I sincerely hope the efforts of  our executive may be directed  at improving our local situation  this year and not in trying to  keep our unity which is the only  real strength we have.  ���G. E.

At the close of the legislative  session the lieutenant-governor  gave royal assent to 65 bills, out  come of a 43 day session with  23 night sittings, longest ending  at 4:30 a.m.  It was a thrill to look up to  the galleries and see the smiling  faces of people from all over  the riding including a good number of young people. I enjoyed  the sessions. They were a tremendous experience.  Among the various acts introduced, was one of particular interest ��� the Workmen's Compensation act. Because of its  tremendous importance it will  be studied carefully before it  becomes law in the next session.  Although I was disappointed  that this important legislation  could not be passed this session  I was pleased to learn that the  labor minister will request the  compensation board to carry out  in principle this new set of rules  as far as possible until the day  the act becomes law.  I have received communications from unions and individuals on compensation problems  and it is my intention to pursue these complaints and watch  College still  live issue  The regional college proposal  for the area including the Sunshine Coast and the Vancouver  North Shore area is not a dead  issue, Hon. Mrs. Isabel Dawson  minister without portfolio in the  provincial government announces.'  A statement issued by her  comes as the result of many  coriflicting staitementis regarding  the proposed' regional college.  The statement clarifies the following points:  1. The proposal for a Regional College has not been rejected  by the government.  2. The department of education considers that there is merit is a regional rather than a  piecemeal approach to the prob-  71em. :    -||��; -  -. 3. MeetingsfPSre being scheduled with the interested school  districts with a view to resolving the difficulties.  "Rest assured," Mrs. Dawson  adds, "I am as anxious as you  to see this kind of facility available to the young people of  my constituency."  Mrs. Dawson informed the  Coast News she has received  several communications about  the new regional hospital set-up.  She explained it was important  it should be understood that the  actual regional hospital districts have not yet been decided  on. When they are established it  will be for financial operations  only. Each hospital will remain  under its present set-aip, locally  administered by the hospital  boards already established.  Trio jailed  in assault  Three Powell River men involved in a fracas with an  RCMP constable last October  which resulted in his being hospitalized, were sentenced in the  Sechelt magistrate's court.  Gerald Taber, 25 received 18  months, Barry Gordon Wilson,  24, received 15 months and Garry William Ekland one year in  jail. The constable during the  fracas received a blow which  rendered him  unconscious.  The incident occurred near  Secret Cove at about 5:15 p.m.  Friday Oct. 21 when Const.  Winch arrested Alexander  Gerald Taber on a charge of  impaired ditiving. A disturbance  followed resulting in the constable being taken to St. Mary's  hospital in Sechelt. Later it was  found he suffered from concussion and back injuries.  The charges involving assault  were heard before Magistrate  Mittlesteadt.  September 15, 1887 a mail  subsidy of $220,000, was granted the CPR by the British government for mail service between Hong Kong and Montreal.  closely how the application of  the act, in principle, is carried  out.  I appreciated the opportunity  of meeting with the executives  of Locals 76 and 142 recently.  It is my earnest wish to understand their problems. Their assistance was keenly appreciated.  There should be more of these  meetings, particularly one in the  near future to go over the compensation act and "see how it  stacks up for the point of view  of the unions.  Locally, further work is planned for some of the roads in  this area. There is a comprehensive plan for the ferry setup.  Some of which will be put into  action this year.  I am pleased that I have been  given the task to co-ordinate  and investigate the: various aspects of senior citizens in the  new department for the aged.  This is a province-wide task and  I intend to devote a great deal  of time and- effort to this in the  months ahead and at the same  time attend to matters that concern all of us in this vast riding.  It is a full time job and I intend  to spend full time at it.  B.P.W. meeting  The next meeting of the Business and Professional Women's  Club will take place in the Winning Post, Ole's Cove Resort,  Tuesday, April 4, at 7 p.m. Prospective new members and visitors will be welcomed.

What suggestions have you  on the lipsticking of rather full  lips?  A. Use bright red lipstick on  all the upper lip, but use it just  to outline the lower lip, filling in  the centre with pink lipstick, or  white underneath the light red  tone.  Q. What is a good way to 'set'  one's freshly applied facial  makeup?  A. Dip some cotton into cold  water, wring out, then press this  ���gently over all the facial area,  being sure to spread, apart the  eye crevices and laugh-lines.  This not only sets and adds  permanence to the makeup, but  also seems to relieve that tense  or tight feeling in the skin that  sometimes accompanies powdering.  Q.. How can I exercise to encourage shapeliness in my legs  and thighs?  A. Sit on the floor leaning  back with your hands- supporting your body, and then, keeping  the legs straight, toes pointed  out, raise and separate your  legs. Then bring them together  again, lower them back to the  floor, and keep repeating this  entire routine, at least ten times  per session.  Q. Any ideas on the improvement of a 'muddy' looking complexion?  A. Try switching to a powder  that closely matches your skin  or is, if anything, a little darker. Too light a powder often  tends to make the complexion  look muddy.  Q. How can I soften my hair,  which is also somewhat on the  dry side?  A. Some vinegar added to your  final after-shampoo rinse will  not only soften your tresses, but  will add an attractive gloss to  them. And how about some pre-  shampoo warm-olive oil treatments to help combat that dryness you've mentioned?  Q. I don't wear my fingernails overly long, but just the  same T am continually breaking  or splitting them on my typewriter at the office. Is there  any preventative for this?  A. You can add more body  and strength to your nails if  you'll apply polish over the ends  of your nails to the other side.  Maya's color on screen  (Collin Hannay, Vancouver  born explorer, adventurer,  mountaineer and photographer  who will show fabulous color  film of his expedition to the  Land of the Ancient Maya at  four centres on the Sunshine  Coast in April is no new-comer  to this area.  Having sailed the coast since  his youth Mr. Hannay bought  property in Madeira Park in  1948. His mother, Mrs. Leta Hannay, lives at Welcome Beach.  As the representative of United  Investment Services Ltd. Mr.  Hannay is becoming well-known  in the whole district.  It was on a photographic expedition to the ancient stone cities in Mexico that Collin Hannay heard from pilots flying  over the Guatemalan rain forest  that they had sighted people living in small isolated- groups in  the jungle. The possibility that  these forgotten people could be  descendants rof the once proud  Mayan race, fascinated Collin  Hannay. This early civilization  developed great architectural  skills some 3,700 years ago and  their calendar was based on  knowledge quite as accurate as  our own today. They lived in  stone built cities planned on a  grandiose scale with- terraces,  plazas, sunken courts, palaces  and temples, embellished with  carving, statuary and inscriptions.  Collin Hanney returned to  Vancouver to finance and equip  an expedition. The film he will  show is the astonishing story of  this journey into forgotten  times, of how by plane, mule  and dugout they fought their  way through dense tropical rain  forest. This is the country into  which the Spanish conquistador  Cortes sent an entire army to  its doom. Not a single man returned.  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council Mr. Hannay  ���will show his film and artifacts  and answer "questions- in.

Long service rewarded  Two long-service employees  from Canadian Forest Products  Ltd., Howe Sound Pulp Division,  each received a gold watch and  a service recognition pin on  Saturday, March 11 at the Canfor Group of Companies third  annual 25 Years Service Award  banquet.  The two men are Edward  Victor Freer, machine, room  foreman, and Christoper fl.  Wood, fire protection inspector.  Ed Freer first became involved with pulp making while  working with Vancouver Kraft  at Port Mellon in 1936. In January, 1940, Sorg Pulp Company  became owners of Vancouver  Kraft and Ed continued working with Sorg Pulp until 1949,  working up to the position of  machine tender. When Canadian  Forest products took over . the  operation of the Port Mellon  mill and commenced production in April 1951, Ed returned  as one of the senior machine  tenders. He continued in this  capacity until July 1, 1955 when  he was promoted to tour foreman. In 1957 Ed was transferred back to the machine room  as machine room foreman and  has held this position since.  Ed was one of the original  signers of the Pulp Sulphite  certification, giving Local 297  bargaining rights with Sorg  Pulp Company at Port Mellon  and was on the local union executive for many years while  a  union member.  He is a keen musician, having played the    accordian    in  many of the early bands in Vancouver and still plays occasionally at various functions. With  his   credited  starting  date   established   as   September,   1941,  last  fall Ed became  the first  Howe Sound Pulp Division employee to qualify for membership in the Canfor Twenty-five  Year club.  Chris Wood was employed by  the Sorg Pulp Company from  January, 1942 until April, 1951  as iron worker foreman; In  April, 1951 when Canadian Forest Products took over operation of the Sorg Pulpmill, Chris  was first employed as a yard  department strawboss^, "working  in that capacity until May, 1955  at which time he was promoted to the salaried position of  shipping foreman. Chris continued to work in the shipping  department until November,  1961 at which time he was transferred to the job of demolition  foreman and in June, 1965 because of re-organization of the  mechanical department, was  transferred to the position of  fire protection  inspector.  Chris has served as President  of Local 297 for two years and  was also fire chief of the Port  Mellon Volunteer Fire Brigade  for three years. He is active  in the Masonic Lodge and an  original member of the Port .  Mellon Burns Night Club committee.  A total of fifty-seven new  members were honored and  membership in the Canfor 25  Year club now totals 132. This  year's banquet was held in the  Fraser Room of the Bayshore  Inn.  COAST   NEWS  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2622  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. How is the handwritten  acknowledgement to a formal invitation properly worded?  A. Always in the third person,  just as was the invitation itself. "Mr. .and Mrs. James G.  Livingston accept the kind invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Richard L. Stanton to a reception on  (Saturday, the fifteenth of November, at eight o'clock, the  Mayberry Hotel."   r  Q. To me, the habit of some  people of talking with a cigarette drooping from their lips,  looks unsightly and rude. How  does it look to you?     ,  A. Unsightly and rude.  Q. Are 7 invitations to christenings as formal as they are  to some other ceremonies?  A. No. It is perfectly proper  to invite friends personally, by  phone, or by friendly note to a  christening.  Q. I have just broken my en-.  gagement. What do I do about  wedding gifts I have already received, and how do I explain  about my broken engagement?  A. You return all the gifts. It  isn't necessary or in good taste  to make any lengthy explanation about the broken engagement, except that it was terminated by mutual consent.  Q. Which.are the proper wines  when only one or two are to be  served at a dinner.  A. Sherry may be served v.ith  the first course, and champagne  from then on. If only one wine  is served, it may be champagne,  a dry white wine, or claret, and  it is served throughout the whole  nieal.  Q. Should one always apologize after a sudden sneeze in  public? ���  A. Certainly...

The  entire structure was covered  with sod and dirt for insulation.  When completed, the structure  looked like a large mole hill  with an opening in the top which  allowed smoke to escape and  was sometimes also used as an  entrance. Some dwellings had  side openings for a doorway.  The particular pit dwellings  to be restored are located between the reserve church and  the cemetery, and there is some  indication they may have been  joined by tunnels.  The estimated cost of the project is $2,500 with the money being provided by federal and provincial centennial grants and an  allocation of money from the  band's fund.  Indians  (Continued from Page 2)  pointed out that many Canadians have the fixed and incorrect idea that the Department  of Indian Affairs is wholly responsible for every aspect of Indian life.  "Indians should enjoy provincial government services on  the same basis as other Canadians. They are entitled to these  services and to deny them is to  perpetuate racial prejudice of  a'distasteful kind.  "It is the responsibility of the  whole non-Indian community to  encourage the Indians to press  on toward independence," said  the minister, "to grapple with  their problems and break the  (bonds of dependence and replace them with full and functional independence.

I am very happy to  see the provincial government  has at long last eliminated the  Granthams bridge which for  many years has been a menace  to the increasing traffic oh this  highway.  But I extend my sympathy to  the local Social Creditors to  whom this job. will stand for  many years as an embarrassing  monument to the blatant favor-  tism of the Social Credit government. They must have had  the plans all ready so that as  soon as the opposition member  was defeated they could start  work.; They had hardly finished counting the ballots before  there were men on the job. If  the opposition member had retained his seat would we be  still using the old bridge? I  wonder ��� Peter Jenkins.  Editor: I see in the Coast  News that the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce has  been pleased to record the passing of the Granthams bridge.  ��� Now, just what were they cele  brating?

Stevenson has been  keenly interested in the Far  East since 1950 when the Toronto Daily Star assigned him  to Korea to report the conflict  -TiTBill No. 16, 1967 has been passed in the B.C. Legislature and:  this bill known as the Provincial Home Acquisition Grant Act  deals with the proposal of the  government to make a grant of  $500 available to eligible persons on the purchase of property  which would qualify for this  grant.  A perusal of the. Act shows  that any person over the age of  19 who has been a resident of  the province for one year immediately preceding the purchase of the home or the completion of construction of a  home; will receive from the  government a grant of $500 towards the purchase of this  home or apartment suite of  which the value not including  land units be at least $4000.  The grant is made available  upon the declaration of the purchaser that he intends to occupy the home or apartment  suite as a resident for period of  not  less  than  five  years.  If the applicant has previously  bought   property   in   British  Columbia   and  has   received   a  Homeowner    Grant,    he would  still qualify for' the $500 bonus,  but the amount of Homeowners'  Grants paid out to him during  the time of ownership of a previous   residence  would  be deducted from the amount of $500  that  he  would receive  as  the  Home Acquisition Grant.  In  other words,    any    person  having  owned  a  home  during  the last two years and having  received  thereon  the  last  two  years'      Homeowners'      Grant  which  would   total  $210   would  appear    to    be  eligible for a  Home Acquisition Grant of $290.  If the person applying for the  Home Acquisition Grant wishes,  he may apply for the grant at a  later date,  and for each year  he holds up his application, he  will     receive     an     additional  amount of $25, that in 1968 for  a home built in 1967 he would 1  receive $525, in 1969 $550,  1970  $575,  in  1971 $600  and  in  1972  $625 and so forth.  If a person after receiving the  Home Acquisition Grant decides  to   sell   the   house   within   five  years he would then have to repay the grant of $500 to the  minister of finance.  Alternatively if upon the sale  of his house he would purchase  another home he could transfer  his grant rights to the other  home where he would then  therefore not have to repay the  $500, provided always that the  next home he would acquire  would qualify under the terms  of the Act, that is have a building value of $4,000.  Under the terms of the act a  purchase of a home by a member of the family of a person  who would not be eligible under  ���the act would not be considered  as a bona fide purchase for  the purpose of this act.  The government intends to set  up an eligibility committee  which will review and determine each and every application to see whether the applicant would qualify.  The    government    intends to  protect itself by  registering a  certificate  against the title  of  ��� the land belonging to the applicant, stating that the owner has  received a    Home    Acquisition  Grant.   This  certificate,   to   be  filed by the minister of finance  against    the    property,    would  have the same effect as a caveat  and until  cancellation  of  the certificate is filed or until  five  years  have  expired after  the payment of the Home Acquisition Grant, no property may  be conveyed unless the minister  of  finance   has  been   satisfied  that  the  grant will  be  repaid  or transferred to another property.  Special application forms are  understood to be made available and a fund of $25,000,000  has been set aside for payment  of these grants.  There are various other conditions and terms but the above  would appear to be the basic  concept of the new act:  It is not known yet how long  it will take to process the application forms and when this  act will take effect, however  the present bill before the  House does stipulate that it is  to be retroactive as from April  1, 1966.
