'    Twenty adults and 11 elemen-  ���;- tary   grade   students   attended  r Monday" night's meeting of the  ��� Centennial pool committee to decide  what  sort  of future  the  ; pool had.   ,..,,,.-���.-���        ...  The/meeting billed  for  7:30  started at 7:45. Shortly before  9 p._ri. Chairman Sam Fladager  :. decided   the   com'triittee   would  continue  until June^ 30 and if  nothing had been, achieved as  regards the $6,000 still required,  for the pool, .-the ���������:'���'cbihiriittee  would then resign.  Jim Cramer, Kinsmen club  member, ��� volunteered to see  what could be done with another  campaign which could perhaps  deal with pledges or any form  of public contribution, also the  possibility of a change of pool  site.    ,; ��� ; -.-:v7' ������'  Various adult speakers, some,  supporters of the. pool project,  aired viewis on another project,  a community hall. Others who  had worked with the project for  two or more years wondered  where the $6,000 was to come  from. This is the amount the  pool fund requires to raise $23,-  500. There is something less than  $17,000 now held in trust at the  Bank of Montreal. ;  Council . chairman Wes. B.  Hodgson informed the meeting  it had to'face facts arid find put  frorri- where the $6,000 was to  coirie. Chairmari Fladager said  he was definitely disappointed  with the lack of enthusiasm on  the Tpart of the; public.  Charles Mandelkau referred  to the selfish attitude of certain individuals who had spread  propaganda against the pool. He  thought that something could be  given from most baby bonus  cheques to help the children.  Others pointed to the size of  the crowd and described it as  an answer from the public to  the committee.  ^diiiigsters aboard  -���  (By iED  THOMSON)  She lay; about a quarter of a  mile off the -wharf at Sechelt,  sleek and gray, bathed in. the  bright June sun, H.M.C.S.

Saker, along with Lt.  J. B. Minnagh, Centennial coordinator and Lt. Peter Watt,  the ship's public relations officer, lined the rail ready to greet  the guests as they came up the  companion ladder. Once aboard  Petty Officers R. Kerr, R. Robson, H. "Marsh, R. Bochee, A.  Cumiming and R. Baker took  charge and divided up the party  for inspection of the ship, ending up with hot dogs and soft  drinks in the men's mess.  It was a red letter day for  the kids and the Navy with its  usual wholehearted thoroughness  gave the children the time of  their lives. One couldn't help but  think the ancestors of these very  youngsters might well have ibeeri  on hand to greet other naval  craft of an earlier time, Captain  Vancouver, Cook, and Quadra,  the Spanish captain.  Just before leaving ship the  guests were assembled on the  after deck and addressed by the  captain 'who complimented the  youngsters on their interest and  good behaviour throughout the  visit.   .

Devey of  the Sechelt RCMP detachment  and Mr. Phil Lawrence, recreational director. Unfortunately  Capt. Sam Dawe was a bit down  by the head and unable to attend.  During the ship's three day  visit, officers and ratings joined with the folk along the Sunshine Coast in- a round of activity including a bit of mountain climbing by a group of seamen, soccer and football games  on Monday and Tuesday evenings, a spectacular fireworks,  display off the deck of the destroyer, reception by the ship's  officers for a large group of local folk, not forgetting a similar shipboard party to that stag-  Mr. and Mrs. Vic Franske of  Davis Bay received a pleasant  surprise from their son Vaughan  Able Seaman serving aboard  HMOS Mackenzie.

Essay prizewinners  After considerable reading and re-reading by members of Elphinstone school teaching staff and Coast News judges, winners of  the Coast News essay competition have been selected. They are:  Velma Stanley, Grade 12, first.  Stan Stubbs, Grade 11, second.  Connie Francis, Grade 8, third.  The first prize is a $25 cash award, second prize $15 and third  prize $10. Pictures of the winners will be found on page seven of  this issue, along with their essays.  Tax date under lire  A method of making municipal tax payments easier for the  public was suggested at Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons  council by Chairman Wes Hodgson. Discussion was left for another meeting.  Complaints have been noted  that the 30 days now allowable  under the early July date on  which tax penalties start is not  sufficient. The tax penalty date  used to be Sept. 15.  A notice of motion for the  framing of a sewer bylaw was  presented. This motion will  come up at the next meeting for  discussion.  Council is also looking into a  possible increase in the charge  to be made for water connec-  tons. The feeling is that present  costs are on the low side.  A letter from the regional  board of directors asking council to offer its views on an application by 74 people  seeking  water in the North Rd-Reid Rd.  section, which had been received by the regional board, was  tabled for further consideration.  Comment recalled that Martin  Dayton, who is engineering Gibsons water expansion, has advised council not to add any more,  consumers, living outside the  municipal area.  The problem of access to harbor installations arising from extension of Walter Hendrickson's  Gibsons Boat Works float has  been settled by agreeing that  so long as there is 75 ft. clearance between dock floats and  the Boat Works float, there will  be no complaints.  Premier Bennett's office wrote  acknowledging receipt of Gibsons council letter asking that  the new ferry on the Langdah  run be named the Queen of G'b-  sons. Hon. Mrs. I. Dawson replied to her letter from council  that she was working on it. Coast News, June 8, 1967.  Phone 886-2622       P.O. Box 460, Gibsons. B.C.  Published Thursdays at Gibsons, B.C.

A much needed report  The Bullock report on the West Howe Sound water study is  one which should not be put on the shelf for future reading. It  is a clearly < written document, accompanied by ample maps,  charts and1 statistical data.  The idea it presents, that of forming an area water organization is sound advice and there should be some effort made, at't  not too distant a date to get action under way.  It will not be an easy matter to get all thie llocal water boards  to see their way clear to get into positive action quickly. Menu'  bers of these local water systems should be the ones to press for'  actiofn in the event their officials are not responsive without pressure.  The territory to be covered by the recommended area water  organization is from north of Langdale to the Gower Point region.  It will use Langdale Creek as its main water supply, according  to the report.  The advantage that would effect Gibsons would be that of'it  turned its water supply over to the water board it would not have  the responsibility of expanding its water sources later on. This  would be a matter for the area water board to tackle. All that Gibsons municipality would do would be to purchase its water supply  from the area board which would have control over the main distribution.  One could editorialize on the report at much greater length but  it should suffice to say that now the West Howe Sound area has a  comprehensive report on which to base judgment. If nothing comes  of it officialdom of the West Howe Sound area will have itself only  to blame.  Was it necessary?  Rumors unless checked can prove embarrassing. This happened in the case of a Gibsons area woman who through well-tin-  tentioned telephone conversations which left doubt in her mind  about her husband's safety suffered an unnecessary anguish.  As well as the phone conversations there was considerable  talk following the recent power blackout. According to one version  it had a man blown, as the result'of blasting, clean across the  top of a pole bearing three high tension wires ��� and the story  continued ��� he was sizzling on the wires until power was cut off.  Not nice, is it? However it turned out there was no man involved, just a protective blasting blanket. The spreading of such  gossip without confirmation is deplorable. One can only hope it  wijil not occur again. To have solicitous enquirers! wanting to  know if there is anything they can do when you haven't the foggiest notion of what they mean, is disquieting. It is better to refrain from spreading information of any kind until you have confirmation of what you have heard.  Civilization marches on  *  CBC's Northern Regional Radio Service, known among Eskimos and Indians as The Big Voice, is ensuring that thousands of  Arctic and sub-Arctic residents who do not read English or French,  learn about procedures to be followed in the forthcoming Northwest Territories council elections.  "In co-operation with: the chief electoral officer and the NWT  government, the Northern-/ Service is broadcasting election information in the three major dialects of Eskimo and in the five  main Indian languages of the Northwest Territories ��� Chipewyan,  Cree, Dogrib, Kutchin, and Slave."  There will be novelty in the early stages of such broadcasts  but wi'tho/ut doubt time alone w)ill tell whether the nuances  within the Eskimo and Indian languages will be able to cope with  the political gobbledegook which will eventually reach the outer  areas. We pity the translators who wlill have the job of making  the political jargon intelligible to those who are supposed to be  listening.  Minute message  Of those who profess to have  faith in God there are some who  show a lack of good common  sense. Irreligious people cannot  help wondering if religious faith  tends to make a person fanatical. But it may be said "quite  conclusively that faith in God  does not cause anyone to become  a fanatic.  In spite of the way some people speak and act, religious faith  is not opposed to common sense;  it does not separate us from our  reason or discourage the use of  reason. To quote from a noted  writer, "Faith is never opposed  to reason in the New Testament."  No one need be skeptical of  religious faith. It is a blessing  that is greatly needed today.  When one makes the contribution to society of a spiritually  dedicated life, he sends healing  currents through all the world.  A young college student, well  endowed with common sense,  was persuaded to visit an art  gallery where a great picture  was being exhibited. After studying the masterpiece from every  angle, the young man turned to  go. One of the attendants, who  had watched his interest and  eagerness, said to him: "It is a  great picture." "Yes," said the  lad, "it is a great picture.''  Then he went back and looked  again upon the face on the canvas and softly said these words:  'O Jesus of Nazareth, thou Saviour of the world; if there is any  thing I can do to help you in the  great work you are doing in the  world, count on me! Count on  me!"  We may have a reputation for  good common sense. But have  we also religious faith. Can Jesus count on us? ���Rev. W. M.  Cameron, United Church of Canada.

Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  In response to past enquiries  concerning the collection of  debts after judgment, we have  dealt with the garnishing of  wages or other funds and the  seizing of assets. This article  will deal with the judgment  summons which should only be  used as a last resort, that-is,  if the other two methods are  not suitable, or have been ex-  haused.  The garr.ishing order is a  court order directed to an employer or other person said to  owe the debtor a sum of money  ordering him not to pay same  to the debtor but to pay the  funds into court to await a later  disposition -���usually to the  creditor. A warrant of execution is a court order', directed  to the sheriff to seize the debtor's goods and sell same to  satisfy the debts.  The judgment summons is also a court order���this is directed to the debtor ordering him  to appear before a judge at a  certain  date,  and to  bring  all  POINT  OF LAW  his business books and papers;  to subject himself to examination concerning his means and  expectation of  retiring the in-.  debtedness.  Should this be ignored by the  debtor an order committing the  debtor to prison for ten days  for contempt of court may be  obtained. After the debtor has  served his time in prison a new  judgment summons may be issued with the costs of the imprisonment being added on.  If the debtor appears to the  judgment summons, he will be  cross-examined by the creditor's  lawyer   who   will   go   into   all  aspects of the debtor's affairs  such as his source of income,  where he banks, income tax returns, what assets he owns, .who  owes him money, what dependants he has, his debts and generally   how   the   debt   can   be  paid. At the completion of this-  cross-examination,    the    judge  may decide the debtor is not in  a  position   to   make   any  payments and dismiss the hearing  or adjourn to a later date. Alternatively, and depending what  assets and income the examination  discloses,  the  judge  may  order, the entire debt or a portion of it paid iminediately or  he    may    order monthly payments of any suitable amount.  The usual order is for small  monthly   payments  and   should  these not be made the creditor's  Sechelt's water picture  FROM THE BULLOCK  REPORT ON WATER  The Sechelt Water Company's  present intake which is fed by  a catchment area of 25.4 square  miles,; is situated at the top of  a series of falls and is at.an  elevation of about 480 feet.  The dam consists of a timber  crib wedged against the large  outcrops of bedrock which project above the stream at this  point. It seems to be adequate  for its present purpose but may  be subject to considerable leakage in very dry weather and it  should be replaced by a properly founded concrete structure if this source is to be developed. The site is admirably  suited to .a small intake with  a height at about eight feet  and a crest length of about 60  feet.  A good location for a high  capacity spillway exists on the  east side of the stream bed.  Upstream the creek passes  through a narrow gorge and  seems to have a solid bedrock.  This feature seems to have  protected the intake from the  impact of large rocks and bolts  pf timber at times of flood.  The dam would have little  storage capacity even though  the valley opens out somewhat  above the gorge. The existing  pipeline from this intake follows  a tortuous path along the steep  western side of the valley, and  is supported at intervals with  rather precariously sited trustle  structures. The valley side appear to be subject to landslides.  The route is the most direct to  Sechelt and is very good, apart  from the valley section.  Improvements to the alignment may be difficult and expensive but would have to be  undertaker;, since a failure of  a trestle or a landslide could  interrupt the supply for an extended period, well beyond the  capacity of the storage facilities.  The eastern side of the valley appears to be a Mttle less  difficult, but as the length of  pipeline in the valley would be  increased there seems to be  little advantage in taking this  route.  A dam site with more storage  would be an advantage and the  valley has been studied with  this in mind. The best site appears to be at the outlet at the  largest lake on the main stream.  This has a relatively narrow  neck   and a   modest   structure  could raise the level of the lake  some ten to 15 feet, providing  storage of 150,000,000 gallons.  This site has the disadvantage  that it is some ten miles from  the intake and large losses  could be expected in this dis-.  tance if it were merely used  to regulate flow. Alternatively  a pipeline between the two  could be constructed but this  would be very costly.  The conclusion arrived at in  the report reveals that Chapman Creek has a large catchment but very little holding  power, and diversion of water  for water supply purposes is  not recommended beyond 1,000,-  000 gallons per day, based on  present records of the stream  flow unless extensive storage is  involved.  Such storage may be obtained  by the provision of. a control  dam at the small lake at the  upper end of the catchment, but  the cost would not be warranted unless the full flow then  available was utilized.  It is recommended that the  communities which now obtain  .. a supply from Chapman Creek,  < should take steps to install a  permanent intake and recording guage at the present Intake  site, so that adequate and accurate records of the stream  flow at this point are available  when further development of  their present supplies becomes  necessary.

If the debtor ignores this,  he will be committed to prison.  If he appears, the judge will  question him and look at documents or adjourn so 7that witnesses may be called, etc., in  order to satisfy himself that the  order was disobeyed, whereupon he may again commit the  debtor to prison.  If it transpires that the debtor was unable to pay through  a decrease in his income caus  ed, for example, by loss of-em-  ployment, he will not be ordered imprisoned, and the matter  may be dismissed ��� to await  a fresh judgment summons.  This dreary proceedure can  go on indefinitely. The. law is  ori thetside^pfj thCi debtor who  can make use of all sorts of  delaying and ������ evasive tactics  but a creditor can usually collect if he is persistent and is  walling to. pay' his own lawyer.  All legal costs are added on to  the indebtedness.  The moral is not to extend  credit to persons not regularly  employed for wages. Garnishing  wages remains the best method  of collection.  N.

These springs can supply 150,000 gallons a day or  more and are still a valuable  sourpe  supply.  From 1931 to 1941 the supply  was adequate although there  were pressure difficulties and  numerous complaints from the  residents of DL 685 which had  hot y(_t; been, included in the  municipality. By 1941 however,  it was obvious that the - new  growth at the upper end of the  village/would have to be serviced. T^ the 7 hew  school which had developed  following consolidation of Roberts Creek with the :Howe  Sound school board. To Robert  Burns, who was village clerk  at'the time, it was clear that  a booster system from the new  reservoir on School Road would  /be inadequate and it would be  necessary to recommend development of the springs on  DL 1313. These springs, then  known as the Co-op springs,  were already being used by the  Co-operative cannery on Henry  Road.  Burns, who was also on the  cannery board, arranged a new  system from the springs, via  the cannery pipe, with an hydraulic    gradient    designed so  that there would be an adequate  supply to the upper areas, water for fire-fighting at the  school and reliable delivery of  about 90,000 gallons a day to  the School Road tank. Such an  arrangement would save on  pumping from the municipal  springs. This was a large undertaking for a young municipality  and it was not until the summer  of 1945 that the new works became fully operative. ���  About the same time, - the  municipality extended its boundary to include DL 685 and this  partly accounts for the sudden  large increase in population in  the period 1914 to 1951. Growth  was very rapid and the system  had to be expanded to keep  pace. New springs on DL 1313  were tapped and Inge Creek  piped to the Reid Road reservoir in 1949. At about the same  time the water license of the  Cannery was taken over and  other licenses extended so that  the authorized diversion from  the municipal springs, Co-op  springs and Inge Creek totalled  220,000 gallons a day by 1950.  In 1952 the diversion of 200,-  000 gallons a day from Chaster"  (Payne)' Creek was proposed,  and acquired and. a provisional  water license obtained. Doubts  about the actual water ��� available ir; dry weather held up  the exploitation of this source  and apart from the relaying of  mains no further progress was  made, until 1965 when the Chaster Creek flow was temporarily  diverted to the Reid Road reservoir. By this time water shortage in Gibsons was chronic and  extension of the system in  the unincorporated surrounding  areas had to be halted.  Since the village had through  the years made a practice of  supplying water to the consumers in the unincorporated areas,  separate water supply organizations in Gibsons Heights and  the North Road areas did not  develop and new consumers  ���looked.to the village for their  water supply. The suspension  of new services brought formal  complaints and an inquiry  which was decided in favor of  the consumer. This incident is  likely to mean a further increase in the number of consumers supplied from the municipal system and the drilling  and proving of a further well ���  on  Lot  A  DL  685  is  timely.  The    new    well put down in  Coast News, June 8, 1967.       3  1966 has been pump tested and  indicates a reliable yield of 360,-  000 gallons a day. This will be  a very valuable addition to the  existing water supply facilities  of Gibsons especially in dry  weather when the flow in Inge  and Caster Creeks is depleted.

Plan cleanup  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District board at its Friday  night meeting were cheered by  a letter from the Port Mellon  Community club which proposed  to provide money for the disposal of garbage which has accumulated at the S turn on Port  Mellon- Highway.  While the general complaint  is that most of this garbage apparently has been left there by  Gibsons people, the Port Mellon Community club is prepared  to see that it is gathered and  buried at a spot already chosen.  Directors expressed the  oplinion that this was a step in  the right direction. For some  one to volunteer a cleanup job  is a rare event and one that  pleases the directors who are  faced with the major garbage  job for the area.  Gibsons council granted the  Port Mellon club free use of its  garbage duimip to help them out  in their Centennial clean-up  problem.

Maps necessary   Jobie installation  What the regional district  board will have to do as regards  getting maps organized for the  district, was explained to the  directors at Friday night's meeting by Mr. B. Jawanda of the  provincial regional planning department.  For about one hour or more  he explained what maps would  have to be prepared and their  use. There will ibe one wall map  showing the entire area of the  region and a series of atlas  books showing the various sections on a larger scale. The  maps will show land use, contours, facilities, geography, subdivisions and zoning among  other things.

Ten years ago they  spearheaded the establishment  of a United Nations peacekeeping force there. They, more than  any other contingent, helped to  head off the Suez crisis. Now,  with our Canadian Anmy units  back home again, the Arabs and  the Israelis are free to go to war  with each other once more.  Having to get out at short  notice is humiliating enough;  But Egypt's president Nasser  has hurt us in another way. He  has tried to make Canada look  like a pawn of the major powers ��� a satellite of the United  States and, to a lesser extent,  of Great Britain.  This hurts our credibility as  a keeper of the peace. True, our  UN contingents are still in Cyprus and the Kashmir. But there  are other areasin which Canada may suddenly be called upon to do a policeman's job. So  the charges made by Presiden/  Nasser must be played d_<��#n.  They must be played down, not  only because they are untrue,  but also because they make Canada look as if we always side  with the United States.  Our acceptibility ; depends, to  a large extent, on our independence. Certainly it depends or  the extent to which we app**ar  to have a foreign policy of our  own. We cannot always be at the .  beck and call of the United  States. Instead we must foe a  middle power whose inter__rts  are similar to those of other  countries who wish to make  their own way in the world.  Quiet diplomacy is all very  well. But quiet diplomacy often  makes Canada look like an agent  for Washington or London. So  we must speak out loudly. We  must speak out even if it means  being critical of the United  States.  Being critical of the U.S. all  of the time, is silly. Washington  is not always wrong. Nor does  :       TURTLES IN B.C.

The one thing most  important, - however is to build  and strengthen my democratic  government. This means that  government rests in the hands  of the people themselves. It is  a government of their . own  choice, and it exists for the  purpose of carrying but the  wishes of the people.  ' The ideal democracy is: however more than a system of  government. It is a way of life.  In order to make democracy  completely successful, the individual citizen must be prepared to recognize and strive to  practice in his daily life the  main ideals of democracy ���  equality and justice for others,  regardless of their race, color  BOOOOOOOOOOOO. .... seeing ghosts? Find  TELEVISION SERVICING fast in the YELLOW PAGES.  Where your fingers do the walking.  or religion.  I think that democracy recognizes that every man, woman and child have dignity and  worth, not only to themselves  but to their community and  country as well. The emphasis  which is placed on the worth  and welfare of the individual  is a major characteristic of a  democratic society.  I have said that democracy  is government by the people  themselves. It is obvious that  all Canadians are not in a position to devote their time and  attention to public affairs. Factories and shops must produce  and sell goods, services must  be provided in order that the  daily life of the nation may be  maintained.  What I am trying to say is  that the vast majority of the  people are concerned with earning a living by working at jobs,  trades or professions or by performing the hundreds of services necessary to a community, but at the same time these  same people must realize that  however employed, their voices  must be heard if democracy is  to work.  It is essential that young people of today take an intelligent  interest in our democratic government. We cannot form an  honest opinion about our government unless we know and  understand _t. Forming an  opinion, I think begins through  discussion with various people  and by watching television and  listening to the radio. It doesn't  matter whether you are for the  present government or against  it, an opinion has been formed  on such matters and that is.  what is important. It is an individual opinion and does not  necessarily, reflect the thinking  of the i general public.  Every Canadian should be  aware of the. basic rights or  freedoms; such as freedom of  press, religion, movement, etc.,  but even more aware of the  responsibilities that must be,accepted if democracy is to thrive  and flourish.  One of the" basic responsibilities is the. respect for other's  rights. Just as we enjoy the  right we fought for, so must we  constantly regard the rights of  others. It must be remembered  that the responsible person exercises moderation in asserting  his rights and has every reason  to assume that others will do  . likewise. For example, if we  expect to enjoy -the right to  worship in the church of our  choice and to practice our religious beliefs without fear, ,  then we must be prepared to.  recognize and defend the freedom of others to differ from us  in their religious beliefs and  practices.  If we place the proper emphasis upon the dignity and  worth of the individual then we  must grant to all others the  same rights as we hope to enjoy ourselves ��� regardless of  their race, color or creed. I  think it is important that we  protect everyone from injustice  if we want assurance that our  own rights will ibe respected  and preserved. However if we  want justice then we must understand and respect the laws  of today.  Freedom of speech has led to  the passing of laws that protect us, therefore, it becomes  our responsibility to respect  the laws. I don't think this  .means we should accept any  law without question, but we  must abide by it until it is  changed.  I stated earlier in my essay  that democracy was more than  a form of government, but more  important a way of life. Then  we as Canadans, must be prepared to contribute within the  limits of our skill, training, experience and interests, to the  welfare of others.  Members of    voluntary    ser-  Printing IS Our Business  vices lend strength and meaning to our democratic way of  life. The nature of democracy  requires that we have continued  interest in the welfare of others.  My concern for what is best  for myself leads me to consider  what is best for all Canadians.  Ideal democracy has never  been achieved in any country  but this must not prevent the  people in such a democratic  state as Canada from constantly striving the ideal.  Second  By STAN STUBBS  First let us discover the  meaning of the two controversial words in the title, responsibilities, and Canadian. Responsibilities are defined generally as the ability to meet an  obligation or actions that which  one is accountable for. A Canadian is simply referred to as  a native or inhabitant of the  geological and political division  of the world called Canada.  Now that I've tried to explain  the meanings of the two vague  words, let us push on into the  real purpose  of this essay.  My responsibilities, ever since  I was born, have been very  restricted, and they will continue to be so, until I attain  the age of 21 years. With the  restrictions on responsibilities,  comes a restriction on privileges. My parents were fully responsible, and still are somewhat so, until I reached the age  of six, or the beginning of  school. I was then responsible  and expected to attend and do  my best at school. I still have  that responsibility, and will  continue to have it until I finish  school, pre and post graduate.  As I continue through life I will  always !be gaining more and  more responsibilities until a  peak is reached and from there  on some responsibilities are lost  to younger and more capable  men.  At the age of about eight, I  received my first job in public.  Previous to this I had my responsibilities or duties at home.  My "first job was delivering  papers for someone else. A year  or so later, the responsibility of  having my own route was then  endowed upon me. As previously stated, the more responsibilities that I gained, the more  privileges I received, and vice  versa.  As I became older, my real  responsibility as a Canadian became more apparent. I learned  more, about the laws, civil and  moral, of a community. I also  learned more of citizenship.  As a teenage driver, I feel  that I have a responsibility in  keeping my name and the  names of others on the road,  off the statistic sheets. I have  a responsibility also in proving  that young drivers can be safe  and good drivers.  When 1 become legally old  enough to vote, I must take an  active part in local, provincial,  as well as federal elections. I  should have my own ideas, and  I should voice them, not be a  vegetable as I flow along with  the crowd. Individuality and  nonconformity can be good if  not carried to extremes. I  should study the platforms and  theories of the different political parties when I am voting.  It is mine and all other Canadian's responsibility to try to  attain a high standing in society, both socially and economically. We should plan our  future as well as our present.  We should not grow too accustomed to having social services,  etc,  to  fall on  in  case  of an  emergency.  vWe should plan our lives so  as to be able to take care of  ourselves in old age. A person  should.be independent without  being  an isolationist.  I think it is every Canadian's  responsibility to fight for what  he believes in. We are supposed  to stand for democracy. Also,  we are supposed to be a prime  example of capitalism. If we  are to be examples then, let  us be good ones, so others will  be proud to be Canadians and  follow in our footsteps. It matters not, whether we are in  peace time or in time of war,  we must always strive to attain  our best in everything. This is  the key to nationalism.  munity the best possible place  to live dn. Where is my community? My community is at  the. Resi dential school and at  home in Stuart Island. What  "can I do to make these places  better to live in?  First in school everyone recognizes the fact that much  more can be accomplished  when there is a fine spirit of  co-operation, good-will and willingness to work for the common cause. The same thing is  true of a school: If there is a  spirit of friendliness, co-operation and enthusiastic loyalty  among the students and a mutual understanding between  teachers and pupils, the school  will be outstanding. The students make the school and the  school can be as good as the  actions and attitudes of boys  and' girls of whom it is comprised. It is a much better plan  to leave behind you a record of  honor and fair play with pupils,  teachers and principals. 7  Responsibility. at home on  Stuart Island is to help other  families who need my help and  to make my home the best to  live: in.

Pick a simple slip-of-a-dress  pattern. With ibrown paper,  trace complete front and back  pattern pieces. Pencil in your  own geometric shapes (straight  lines are easiest). Cut along  the pencil lines and add seam  allowance as you cut each  shape from shbck-hu^d remnants being sure to retain the  grain direction. Seam shapes  together and sew up dress as  usual. Try brilliant pink, peacock and sun-gold.  Shape a sleeve tiny and barely there. Add to a slither of  crepe ��� paled and pretty.  Smother the sleeves with mas  ses of soft crepe bows. Result?  A dreamy dress to sweeten up  any evening.  Mix is in; Match is out. The  all-one-color look is out of tune  with spring's symphony of hues.  Try shoes, orange and gold  striped dress, beige bag, helmet in red and beige. Or clashy  blights, navy skimmer under  neon-pink coat lined in lime.  Everything matchy is out this  year in favor of co-ordination.  The dandy shirt makes a lady  out of any pantsuit. Sew sheer  in pastel-pretty gingham, front  lavishly ruffled and iced with  lace.

Then along came a letter from  Mrs. I. Greene of Granthams,  suggesting that a proposed 20  lot Enemark subdivision project  on Granthams upper level would  have a lessening .effect on  Granthams water supply.  To the Reid road petitioners  the directors informed them the  regional board will include the  petition in the overall regional  water study. At theTsairie time  Gibsons council will be asked  to give its point ofVview on the  problem of supplying the petitioners with water.    7  As regards the Greene letter  the board decided to investigate before it passed judgment.  The directors also discussed  a meeting for officials'of wa  ter organizations which it is expected will be attended by C.  W. Bullock, who produced the  West Howe Sound water report;  Martin J. J. Dayton of Vancouver who produced the Gibsons  council report on water possibilities and if he can make it,  Jack Davis, MP, who will be  able to explain possibilities of  federal government assistance.  This meeting will be held on  June 19 starting at 7:30 p.m.  in Gibsons Health Centre.

Commenting on the regional  board's part in the water (issue,  the chairman, Norman Watson,  explained the board would be  concerned with supply only. Distribution would be up to local  water boards.   He  backed   the  May rainfall light  (By R. F.

FISH NEWS  Issued by department of fisheries for the week ending May  28:  The lower Sunshine Coast reports Chinook and coho fishing  is spotty but rates the overall  picture as fair. Lee's Bay chinooks were scarce ��� a big drop  from a week ago.  Saturday and Sunday evening  saw a few heavy fish taken in-'  side the Pender Harbour entrance by mooching and by .rollers working slowly with live  herring. A. L'ajl'ar of Vancouver  took a 19 pounder Saturday at  the Indian Island hole. Archie  Scott of Vancouver took a 16  and an 18 also on Saturday. Sunday evening produced a pair  weighing in at I8Y2 and 15 for  John Schleimer of Vancouver,  both fish by mooching at the Indian Island hole. Sunday again  saw a 16 and a coho for Eileen  Harron   of  Vancouver.,  Chinooks were reported in fair  supfpiy in waters from, Francis  Point below the Harbour entrance and up Agamemnon  Channel to Egmont. Telescope  Pass on the Jervis Inlet side  also yielded a few heavy fish.  Top chinooks for the Egmont  area included a 35 Saturday  boated at the L & M log booms  below the Skookumchuk rapids  by R. A. Ross of Vancouver,  and a 12 and an 18 pounder here  on Sunday.by anglers unknown.  Doc Bromwell of Vancouver limited in two hours Thursday at  Secret Bay near Egmont. An 18  was his- best fish.  Coho have been only luke  warm generally speaking although a few rods have met  with good success. The fish are  running 4 to 5 Lbs. in weight.  Coho waters mentioned in the  fishery officer's report were '  Welcome Pass, Pearson Island,  Fearney Point and Egmont.  Thursday was apparently the  best day last week at the latter  spot. Welcome Pass produced  the odd good catch Sunday including a limit of 8 fish ;  Bullock report stand that local  water areas attain improvement  district status in order they;can  improve their borrowing power.  He added there appeared to be  differences of. opinion on ; this  between cabinet ministers Cat <ip  bell of municipal a_fairs and Wil-  liston of water resources.   ���  Comment was also offered on  the division of jministerial opinions on regional parks and 'recreation but a conference on this  later this year is expected. Ministers involved in this dispute  are Williston for parks and Peterson for recreation via the department of education. 7  However, regardless of argument concerning opinions on water vadaninistration, the chair-  . man felt the directors could go  ahead with their study on the  water situation and if necessary  retain a water consultant.  Covering the garbage scene,  directors decided to seek lots  three, four and 14 in vicinity of  Gibsons dump7 In so doing they  would avoid placing themselves  in the position of contaminating  the.water creek there. This was  the advice offered in the Bullock report; The Pender Harbour garbage area will be registered shortly. Sechelt's dump  tender was awarded to Ted Osborne at $500. Top bid was $1800.  Figures came from a second bid  asked for when directors f-?lt  the conditions for the bid were  not understood. The first Osborne bid was for $400. Egmont  district is still looking for. a  dump for that area.  BOWLING  E & iM BOWLADROME  Mon.
