SERVING THE CaiO^ING SUNSHINE COAST  Sechelt may hold  llOmffl  ?  Preliminary budget consideration by Sechelt's council Wednesday night of last week resulted in Clerk ' Ted Rayner  suggesting council could get by  on a 10 mill rate by delving  into reserves up to about $2,-  500.  The budget called for expenditure of approximately $32,000  but when councillors mulled  oyer some, things that had not  been included the clerk advised that the $1,600 he had proposed be taken from the reserve account could be increased to $2,500.  Councillor Louis Hansen suggested there should be more  street lights. Councillor Ray  Clark proposed the village hold  a Centennial street dance for  the public. Councillor Morgan.  Thompson suggested that if  there was anything- left over  "let's have something for the  people."  Included in the budget was  $5,000 for the new municipal  hall, $838 for the regional district board and $1,250 for the  airport, double last year's  grant.  When the    airport    financial  statement was placed before  council criticism arose from an  item of $2,000 covering accounts  paid of which there was insufficient detail according to  council remarks. The report  was held in abeyance until council could hear from the airport  management committee.  Councillor Thompson offered  the suggestion that the regional  district! board should also be  obliged to pay something towards airport costs. Councillor  Clarke in presenting his report  on swings and a slide for Hackett Park said six swings and  the slide would cost in the region of $828, some of which  would have to be spent at the  manufacturing level and the remainder locally. It was moved  that the money be,, provided  from capital expenditures. Fill  to level off the area where the  swings will be placed will cost  cost about. $65.  Council decided to put the old  municipal hall up for bids and  received from B.C. Hydro a  cheque for $461.81 as taxes.

Councillor Feeney reported the  federal department of public  works is showing interest in the  placing of a water line for fire  purposes at the end of the government wharf, at government  expense. This line could be used  to tap sea water in the event  o_ a serious fire. With pumpers  attached a flow of 500 gallons a  minute would ibe possible.  Application;   by <  Councillor.  Mothers' March  The 1966 Mothers March in  British Columbia collected $230,-  926 through 73 Kinsmen Clubs.  This money was used to help  finance medical rehabilitation  services, vocational training  programs for the physically handicapped, and provincial research projects.  This year Gibsons and District Kinsmen Cl-ufb; has collected $483.50 through its mail campaign for the Mothers March.  This is more than in past years,  and the Kinsmen Club thanks all  who contributed generously in  aiding the physically handicapped in the province.

Barnes, Gower Point Rd.,  continued from last meeting his  argument against two entrances  oh one property. He was informed that council had no jurisdiction over a secondary highway  as regards entrances. For other  village areas there is no bylaw  offering any restrictions.  Mr. Barnes suggested that  council pass a bylaw to regulate  entrances to property. Councillor Feeney declared he would  not do so without complete investigation; Chairman Hodgson  asked Mr. Barnes if that would  satisfy him for the time being.  He agreed.  Mr. Barnes alleged that a  building toeing constructed on  the lot involved in the entrances  and next to him was going to be  used as a commercial worikshop.  It was 14 feet high, too high for  a garage. Councillors1 were of  the opinion he was assuming too  much. The; building permit was  issued to cover a workshop and  a garage. Mr. Barnes referred  to the building of cruisers. He  complained about the size of the  workshop. The area is zoned  residential. Mr. Barnes was of  the opinion there was something fishy.  Councillor Drummond said the  owner of the building in .question had stayed within his legal  rights. He added that owing to  town planning being considered  several bylaws had been delayed, one of which was the type  of bylaw Mr. Barnes desired.  Mr. Barnes closing discussion  said he was fighting a technicality to find out where he stood.  Councillor Feeney recommended purchase of a truck for ambulance purposes at a cost of  $2,800. It will be considered  when the budget is lined up.  Councillor Ken Goddard advised that as a result of his explorations into floats for the  Municipal beach which he found  too high, that it looks as though  this issue will have to wait an-  You are  needed  Work is available  for an unlimited  number  of   community^  minded   citizens.

New marina lor Gibsons Harbor  .Damn tough digging, was the  laconic comment of Harry Smith  operator of Smitty's Boat Works  and Marina, as he looked out  to Gibsons inner harbour where  the.dredge Delta dipped her IVz  yard scoop to the bottom.  The job of digging to a depth  of six feet at low water mark to  allow for a 1,000 foot floating  marina may go on for several  weeks. This is due to the hard  pan floor of the harbor, where  under normal conditions the  operation calls for clearance of  at least four scow loads a day.  At the present rate only two  partial loads are toeing cleared.  Smitty is hoping to have at  least 750 ft. of the 1,000 foot  float dockage in operation in  time for the summer season,  with the balance to follow next  year.  This will allow for the berthing of at least three times the  number of boats and "that's a  blame sight better than moor  ing them high and dry as we've  been doing up to now. Let me  tell you before that dredge out  there weighs anchor, hard pan  or no. hard pan, we'll have a  proper marina here yet," Harry  Smith added.  Meanwhile the dredge snorted as it yanked another streaming scoop from the harbor floor,,  and. dropped its hardwon bit of  stubborn hard pan into the waiting barge, preparatory to.dump-  ing its load with the aid of a.  cat, well out into deep water.

So far Sechelt has had kindergarten classes for Indian children. Reason  for taking in the top elementary  grades, as explained to board  trustees, is that these two  grades, the nearest to entering  the high school level, are at  a disadvantage when entering  grade eight owing,to differences  in curriculum.  Future   plans   include   incor-  . porating lower grades in public  schools   just   as soon   as   they  can  be   assimilated.   Chairman  Joseph Horvath informed the  trustees. that .the Indian band  council favored integration  without a dissenting vote. Principal W. S. Potter was of the  opinion, that the two grades  .; would be better off for haying  ^ohie -.-public school - experierics.;  before reaching'high school.  Peter Wilson, secretary-treasurer informed the board he  had received official, notification  from Victoria that the board  could now go ahead with drawing plans for Elphinstone school  additions, Langdale activity  room, Pender Harbor equipment room, an administration  unit at Davis Bay and the proposed school board office.  School necessities get first  choice.  ��� Gibsons Elementary school  traffic problems came to the  fore when a solution was  sought.   One   suggestion  called  Runaway car on hill  Strange lights  Something mysterious is going on at Bowen Island. About  one week ago someone reported  to the Coast News seeing a red  moon back of Keats Island towards Bowen Island.  Monday night, Eric Thomson,  lawyer, of Hopkins, reported  seeing a red vertical light above  the tree tops towards the northern end of Bowen. It appeared  to be free above treetops and  was also noted in the same position at 3 a_m. Tuesday morning.  Tuesday morning the Vancouver Province reported even the  weatherman was confused by  that strange orange light seen  over Georgia Strait and Howe  Sound late Monday night.  "We put up a weather balloon  at 9 p.m. but that wasn't the  light, the balloon wouldn't have  stayed up more than 30 minutes," he said.  FORUM ON EDUCATION  A forum on education with  Dr. A. R. McKinnon of Simon  Fraser University where he is  dean of education, will be held  Saturday starting at 10:30 a.m.  in the United Church Hall. Dr.  McKinnon, who has worked  with Marshall McLuhan, is expected to have some interesting  observations on education.  Wally Peterson had a close  call while driving his truck  down the highway last week.  According to Wally, he was  passing the school at a normal  speed and on changing to second, nothing happened. The axle  apparently had slipped out of  the rear wheel differential. He  hit the brakes, but the drums  had pulled out past the shoes  and Wally had a runaway truck  careening down hill.  He had the presence of mind  to head for the only widening-  out spot on the road, and attempted to nose it into a ramp  across the ditch at the intersection of North Fletcher. Just  as he was about to swing around  further complications arose as  his duals floated past him.  He hung onto the wheel and  headed for the ramp. The heavy  truck slithered on a wide arc in  SCHOOL CONCERT  Again this year under the  capable direction of Mrs. Muriel  Neilson Gibsons Elementary  School choir will present a special concert on Thursday, April  13 in the Elementary activity  room.  This year over 70 eager young  choristers have been practising  in a special music class twice  weekly.  The proceeds from the door  admission, charge is ��� intended  for one of the school projects  a complete circle and ended up  facing the opposite direction.  Fortunately there was no opposing traffic at that moment.  When Wally gathered himself  together, he walked away with  no more than a bump on the  head and a bruised elbow. After  24 hours observation in the hospital, he was back on the job  at Hilltop Building Supplies,  feeling a bit of delayed reaction and fuzzy in the head, but  thankful to get off as easily as  he did.  The Petersons are heading for  their summer place in the Okan-  agan for a few days, to give  them both a chance to get over  that shook-up feeling.  ^lunmnuimmiimunnmnmiMmunninnHnninuinui  Plan petition  The public is invited on Thursday, April 20 at 1:30 p.m. in  Sechelt's Legion Hall to the  monthly meeting of the Old Age  Pensioners' organization to discuss the presentations of a  Founding committee for Senior  Citizens Homes.  There will also be a petition  prepared to go to the provincial  government for a charter of incorporation of a society; which  first of all will undertake to  raise funds for the purchase of  a suitable site for homes.  Any person can attend this  meeting.  for a push-button traffic light,  at the,corner, another a crosswalk; from the school .across:  School Road at the side gate.  The board will arrange to see  7 highway ��� officials and . the  ^RCMP to see what can be done.  ;The; ��� problem of ignoring  School bus lights when stopped  was included in the argument  and Trustee Leo Johnson noted  that even school teachers were  among those who ignored school  bus lights.  Pender Harbor PTA. reported  the school grounds were not  draining properly. Some fill  for low spots will be arranged  as soon as possible but with  similar conditions at other  schools it was a matter of getting a crew together in Pender  Harbor.  Mr. and Mrs. Tom Goode and  Mr. U. Malkin appeared on behalf of Bowen Island ratepayers  who sought some transportation  cost relief for students who go  to West Vancouver secondary  school and use transportation  to attend elementary school.  Buses leave Horseshoe Bay five  minutes before those students  land forcing them to take municipal buses.  The elementary problem concerned departmental regulations which pays for one pupil  in a family only. A second child  is not eligible. The board decided to pay such assistance if  application is made by the parents but that the situation wpuld  be reviewed at the end of "the  year.  This move would also affect  six other children in Pender  Harbor area. The Bowen Island  representatives also inquired if  the board could not include st  trustee from Bowen Island. The-  chairman pointed out that the  Indian band at Sechelt also'  wanted a trustee on the board.  The Merry Island lightkeeper  seeking transportation relief  for his family was informed he  would have to do like previous  lightkeepers had done, seek  help from his employer, the  department of transport. Madeira Park Credit Union seeking to start a children's banking account in the schools will  receive notification that it is  up to the school principal to  make the decision. Two letters  offering space for a school  office will be replied lo with  the act the board can now go  ahead with its own building. Coast News, April 13,; 1967.

' ' ���'������  Canadian tenacity!  f  Not too many men today can write firsthand knowledge of the  (Battle of Vimy Ridge. Their numbers are fading. Those who trudged across that shell-torn slope behind a massive artillery barrage  ion April 9, 1917 did so with the knowledge that the volunteers making up the Canadian Corps were for the [first time in battle as a  ���unit.  It was on that day the Canadian Corps settled all argument  about its ability as a fighting unit. The men had previously proved  ithems elves in Ypres Salient and on the Somme, fighting under  other commands than their own. While at Vimy they were under  the generalship of Lord Byng, but the staff behind him was completely Canadian.  The victory proved Canadian tenacity. Other armies had tried  to take the ridge but failed, with heavy casualties. If one could  only piece the day by day story of Canadians on Vimy Ridge from  October 1916 to April 9, 1917 it would be a story of dogged tenacity  (under conditions which at times were dispiriting. Rain and mud  pnd the monotony of looking at the jagged turrets of an ancient  /abbey at Mont St. Eloi was the winter's landscape. It was always  there, rain or shine.  After April 0 as the line advanced toward the city of Lens and  other mining areas, housing became a simpler problem. There  were hundreds of good dry cellars in which one could live. One  could then look back on the foibidding ridge from the other side.  jLife became far more bearable.  The Canadian Corps except for a brief interval at Passchen-  'dale was guardian of the. ridge until the last 100 days of 1918 when  as attacking troops they were used elsewhere. The fact they had  /captured Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917, enabled the Allied armies to  ijshift the enemy out of France when the time was favorable.  April 9, 1917 proved the Canadian Corps as a fighting unit. The  capture of the ridge that day paved the way for the eventual capture of Mons in November 1918 at which point the armistice took  over. They as volunteers came, saw and conquered. The spirit they  ���displayed that day is-still available.  A gloiv of virtue?  Most men have two general philosophies regarding lawn mdw-  (ing��� and other chores around the house. They think that it's good  (for Junior to assume these tasks. It teaches responsibility, good  /work habits, care of property, pride in accomplishment ��� and  other phrases that a man hears at P.T.A. meetings,, or remembers  \vaguely from that book on Child Care for Parents that his wife  jmade him read before the first baby was born.  ��� Lawn mowing is a little different from clearing out the cellar  or garage. If the lawn goes too long, the grass gets so high that  ���it's hard work to cut it. Therefore, on a Saturday afternoon when  it looks as though Junior's ball game had gone into extra innings,  a man usually stirs himself and gets at it. r  Truth to tell, after a man has read the'papers and looked over  the week's crop of magazines, he's sort of glad to change into old  clothes and get some exercise. It engenders a glow of virtuous  tfeeling. Or does it?  POINT  OF LAW  otf sir f-^raclicintf oLawif  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOR  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered ��� in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  Several readers have written  in about persons injured on  their premises. When is the occupier liable?  In a problem of this nature,  it is necessary to firstly classify  the person injured into his proper category. If a person is on  the occupier's premises in connection with the occupier's business, (the common example being a customer in a store), the  occupier has a much higher  duty than if the injured person  was merely on the premises as  a social visitor, for example, a  house guest.  In the first case, the occupier  has a duty to guard against,  and to warn the visitor of, unusual dangers of which he  knows or ought to know. In  the second case,  the  occupier  er  has no duty to warn against  obvious dangers and is only  bound to warn against concealed dangers actually known to  him.  A third category is the trespasser, who has very few rights.  The occupier only has to avoid  knowingly and wilfully setting  a trap for the trespasser.  Children fall into a separate  category. If the occupier habitually allows trespassing children to play on his premises,  they become, by law, converted into the same category as  the house guest and the occupier owes then a duty of care  accordingly. However, the law  recognizes that a child (especially a small child) does not  have an adult's sense of. danger and if there is some alluring object such as moving  machinery which tempts the  child to enter and play with  any such dangerous thing, the  occupier will be responsible.  In all cases, if the occupier  is liable, he must pay for all  injuries, pain and suffering, disfigurement, medical expenses,  impairment of. bodily functions,  loss of limbs or fingers, etc.  By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Canada's most famous apple  variety and the one that still  is dominant acrcss the country    the Mcintosh Red ��� has a  history   that   goes   back   more  than"170 years.  The contribution of the outstanding variety was the work  of John Mcintosh, the United  Empire Loyalist who quit his  farm in the Mohawk Valley of  New York State to settle at  Dundela, Ont., and of his son  Allan, who was born on the  Dundas County farm in 1815.  It was in 1796 that John Mcintosh, while clearing brush on  his new property, came across  a,, few young apple trees.  The  seedlings     were     still     small  enough to be transplanted and  they   were   moved to  a fenced  plot close to the house.  *       *.      *  How the  seedlings  got  there ^  in the first place is not known*  definitely.   But     their     apples  were   something like   those   of  the  Fameuse  trees brought  to  Quebec from Normandy in the  17th century and it is presumed  that    the     seedlings had been  sown by some early French settler.  Only a few of the trees were  to survive. Among those that  did, however, was one that  proved to be exceptional and it  became the parent tree of the  Mcintosh Red apple variety.  It was shortly after Allan's  birth in 1815 that the father  began to develop his orchard  in earnest. He grew seedlings,  planting some in his orchard  and selling others to farmers  in the district. By the time  Allan was five years old, the  father had a thriving nursery  business under, way at his farm.  *      *     *  But of- all the trees in the ���  Mcintosh orchard, none equalled the one particular tree that  had been found in the brush.  By now it had become the cen- .  ter of attraction for farmers in  the area, winning acclaim for  the excellence of its apples, its  big yields, and its hardiness.  How to propagate this outstanding species and make it  available to other growers was  a problem that remained unsolved until 1835. The Mc-  Intoshes were aware that grafting was required to do this but  they didn't know how to perform the operation ��� nor did  anyone else in the district.  Moreover, there were no agricultural schools or government  departments at this time to  which they could turn for help.  Father and son already had  tried growing trees from seed  of the original Mcintosh but,  as they expected, the fruit produced eventually by the seedlings was no match for that  from the parent tree.  *      *    ��� '*  Finding the seedling tree in  1796 was a stroke of luck. Luck  was involved again���this time  in the spring of 1935 when the  Mclntoshes hired -an itinerant  worker who arrived at the farm  locking for a job. He was from  the United States and, it turned  out, he knew how to graft apple trees.  By the time he quit the Mcintosh farm later that year he.  had taught Allan how to perform the operation.  During the winter of 1835-36  Allan and his father worked at  the job of grafting slips, or  scions, from their prize tree on  two and three-year-old crab apple seedlings. These were then  packed in sawdust and stored  in the cellar until spring when  many were planted in the Mcintosh orchard and the rest offered for sale.  |- ���*'-**  7 Grafting seedlings in the winter, planting them in the spring  and looking after their orchard  made the following years busy  ones for the Mcintosh family.  Allan became a frequent traveller throughout the district, selling seedlings and teaching  farmers the art of grafting apple trees.  ���Although the Mcintosh enjoyed only a local reputation for  some time, its renown began  to spread. By about 1900 it had  become well-established in eastern Canada and it went on to  become one of the leading  varieties, in North America.  Other varieties have appeared since but the Mcintosh still  is the one most widely grown  in this country. In 1965, for example, it accounted, for slightly '  more than 50 percent of the 21,-  435,000 bushels of apples grown  that year in Canada.  *     *     *  The original tree, a young  seedling when it was discovered  in 1796, outlived both the father  and son. John died in 1845, Allan in 1899. The tree, located  about 15 feet from house, was  damaged badly when fire levelled the building in 1893. But the  branches on the side farthest  from the blaze continued to  bear fruit until 1908 when the  old and famous tree finally expired.  In 1912 a granite monument,  paid for by popular subscription, was erected on the Mcintosh property in memory of the  father and his famous tree.

To fail  in the task of creating a new  order is to invite disaster.  If there is to be peace on  earth individuals and races  must not be used as tools in  a political or economic machine.  The infinite value of the human  personality must be recognized  not only in our creeds but in  our deeds. Materialism and  racial prejudice must be overcome.

I see more and more people cutting their bread and rolls  at the table with" their knives.  Is this now considered correct?  A. Not at all. Good behavior  still requires that bread, rolls,  and the like, be broken into  small pieces with the fingers,  and each piece individual^ buttered as it is eaten.  Q. My husband has been invited to serve as godfather to  a friend's child. He is giving  a silver cup to the baby. Should  my name be included as one  of the donors? ;  . A. No. The cup is from the  godfather alone, and should be  marked as from him. No additional gift is necessary fr^m  you.  Q. Should the used silverware  be left on the platter when it  is, being removed from the dinner table?  A. Yes.

How can I de-emphasize  my very pointed chin?  A. If you'll use a highlighting  (lighter) shade of base at the  sides of the pointed part, you'll  impart the illusion of roundness  or fullness to your chin.  Q. What are some good makeup tips for deep-set eyes?  ��� A. Deep-set eyes need a light-  colored foundation around them.  Then blend a light shadow on  the eyelids up to the brows only  a t the outer corners. Extend  the eyes with liner at the outer  corners. Also, false lashes, cut  to fit from the center to the  outer corner are very flattering  to deep-set eyes.  Q. What is the best hairstyling  for my oval-shaped face?  A. Lucky you! Yours is the  ideal and most envied type of  face, and you should play up  its pretty shape with a hairdo  that follows its oval outline.  In fact, the object of just about  every hairstyle is to create the  illusion of a lovely oval, no  matter what the actual shape  of the face.  Q.How can I by use of makeup cope with the deep grooves  between  my nose  and mouth?  A. Smooth a lighter fundation  over<these lines, and-blend, it  in. A spot maketfp stickis also  a handy gadget for this bit of  magic, too.

Parents and friends  are invited for this special occasion.  A Community Conference on  Education recommendation. last  November by Mr. Alan Stalbles,  principal of Delbrook Senior  Secondary School, North Vancouver, was for the .correlation  of subject matter or use of the  cluster system as it is sometimes called. Following this recommendation which was also  endorsed by the education committee a workshop took place  last Thursday afternoon for Elementary school teachers. Mrs.  O. Whitcutt, formerly supervisor of music in Windsor, Ont, now  a grade 5 teacher and director  of music at Teoumseh Elementary School in Vancouver spoke  of the work at Tecumseh in this  field including experiments in  team teaching.  If 20th Century technology has  reduced the world to a global  village, it is essential that we  learn to understand the people  who live across the street. It is  the job of the educator to break  down barriers caused by misunderstanding and prejudice. If a  child is to acquire a sympathetic understanding of people of  different races and cultures' the  bare bones of historical and geographical fact must be clothed  with knowledge that will relate  to the child's experience and  bring the area under study into  focus as a vital, living coaramun-  ity;  This is being attempted at  Tecumseh by a combination of  team teaching and the correlation of music, language, English,  art, drama and physical education with social studies. Mrs.  Whitcutt   took  as   an   example  the unit on Central America and  the Caribbean which is part of  grade 5 social studies and described how the children's interest in the area is stimulated  by the' teachers of many subjects co-operating. Songs and  music of the people are' learned  and enjoyed, dances and games,  legends and folktales as well  as travelers' and explorers'  writings are studied. Art projects include murals and designs for booklets written in  language periods. In addition,  libraries, art galleries, museums and other resource centres  are scoured for materials, books  films, tapes, records. and information gathered from the community from people who have  been recent visitors to the area  or who grew up there.  Tecumseh school serves an  area in Vancouver where people  of many ethnic origins live and  so research for ��� information  about each group and why they  left their homeland to come to  Canada was a natural for a  Centennial social studies project. This occupied the fall term  and provided the basic material  for a Centennial pageant which  was put together in a hectic  three week period before Easter and which involved the whole  school and community.  Mrs. Whitcutt was a mine of  information about resource materials and was . able to give  much worthwhile advice as to  where books and. recordings and  films, etc can be obtained.  A no host luncheon on Thursday of last week was held: in  the Welcome Cafe where she  met a number of local people.  Plan Gentennial Fair  r Further emphasis will be  given to the Centennial theme  for the Sunshine Coast Tall  Fair on August 11th and 12th.  This was the decision of the  executive committee meeting at  the home of Mrs. Gerry Clarke  on North Road, Monday evening.  The third meeting in preparation for this year's August Fair  was well attended with a turnout of 15 members. In the absence of Len Wray, the chairman, Vice-president Alf Clarke  presided. Mrs. Clarke accepted the responsibility of organiz-  ing-secretary for the fourth  year with Mrs. Malyea, convenor of concessions assisted  by Mrs. Cecil Chamberlin.  Out of the business of the  evening came a proposal to invite Mrs. Isabel Dawson, minister without portfolio, to open  this year's fair. The Royal Canadian Shows were also approached on the possibility of  providing the major entertainment.  While this meeting was reasonably well attended, Mrs.  Clarke emphasized the need  for much more active interest  on the part of the folks along  the entire Sunshine .Coast, and  would welcome individuals or  delegations from, all points in  this area particularly Sechelt.  The next meeting is called for  May 8 at the home of the secretary.  Welcome 1st president  The April 5 meeting of Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital, with the president, Mrs. D. Philp in the chair  saw 17 members present. One  visitor was welcomed, Mrs. Dan  Cameron, first president of Pender Harbour auxiliary when it  Was formed in 1937. She is also  a life memiber. It was a pleasure  to have Mrs. Cameron present  and to see her looking so well.  ,Mrs. Philp gave an interesting report from the co-ordinating council, of which she is the  new chairman. Mrs. O. Sladey  reported the Thrift Shop progressing favorably, a substantial bank balance being realized. Members of this auxiliary  will staff the shop on April 8.  Mrs. Harling read the annual  report of Hospital Volunteers.  This service is much appreciated by the  patients.  Mrs.  Mc-  New owner  Danny's Motel and Dining  Room has a new proprietor ���  Jack Gordon Peters, a young  and personable and experienced business man from Vancouver.  Peters, a native of Ponoka,  Alberta, lived for a number of  years in Vancouver, where he  attended Simon Fraser University. He has been around a bit,  including Mexico, where he  learned to speak Spanish when  residing in Guadalaga. He is  unmarried and his single recreation is springboard diving.  He was led to Gibsons, away  from the pressures of Vancouver, largely iby a nostalgic urge  to live once more in a smaller  connmunity, similar to the one  in which he had grown up,  where he found living comfortable and the people friendly.  Naughton told, of plans for Pender Harbour May Day on May  20. This auxiliary will enter a  float or decorated car.  Next May Day meeting will be  held on April 17 at Madeira  Park Community Hall, all interested are asked to attend.  Mrs. Philp and several members will attend the regional  meeting of B.C.H_A. Auxiliaries  division at Richmond General  Hospital on April 13. Mrs. B.  Warden paid a tribute to the  memory of Mrs. H. McCallum,  a resident memiber of this area  for many years.  Canon Alan Greene will open  the Centennial Spring Tea sponsored by the auxiliary on April  15 at 2 p.m. at Madeira Park  Community Hall. There will be  a sale of home baking, plants,  aprons, superfluities, a fishpond  for the children, a raffle and a  good cup of tea. All proceeds  will be given to the Pender Harbour Centennial Fund, so a fine  day and a big attendance is anticipated. The next meeting will  be on Wed., May 10 at 2 p.m.  at Madeira Park Medical Clinic.  Honor pioneers  The Centennial committees of  Roberts Creek, Gibsons and Gibsons Rural area will honor their  pioneers at a presentation dinner in Danny's Dining Room on  Saturday, April 15 at 1 p.m.  Mr. Jack Davis M.P will present the medals, and Mrs Isabel  Dawson, minister without portfolio, will propose the toast to  the pioneers. There will toe six  pioneers from Roberts Creek,  five from Gibsons and 11 from  Gibsons Rural area, along with  their guests.  Sechelt  (Continued from Page 1)  partment as to the cost of  blocks of land adjacent to the  village'-on which some timber  will be removed stated that the  department could not value the  land until logging had been  completed.  When Clerk Rayner said he  could not see his way clear to  attend a municipal officer's  meeting in Victoria, over the  May 24 holiday period, councillors argued that he should  go and that it was time the village had someone who could replace him while, he attended  such events. Clerk Rayner argued that owing to his handling  the motor license branch work  it was not easy to find someone  who- could take that off his  hands. The issue was left in  abeyance until the next meeting.   ..���:. '  Council found it had to pay  legal fees amounting to $240 on  the property donated by Mr.  and Mrs. Ted Osborne. This  donation is a strip of beach  130 feet long at Porpoise Bay.  Councillor Morgan was pleased  with the gift but not happy over  the legal costs.  Clerk Rayner was appointed  fire prevention officer for the  issuance of permits during the  fire control period for this year.  Harry Bachelor was granted a  building permit to allow alterations to the Home Oil Building.  What to do about dogs? This  problem was settled by council  agreeing that it could only consider written complaints which  can come before council for discussion.  DeMolay camp  On April 1st and 2nd a DeMolay workshop was held at  the YMCA Camp in Langdale.  150 DeMolays attended, coming  from all points in B.C. including several members from Mt.  Elphinstone chapter. At the  workshop such as the one just  held, DeMolay are taught the  various aspects of working together, the ritual and to be a  good DeMolay.  The local DeMolay thank all  those who contributed to the  Retarded Children's Drive sponsored by the Mt. Elphinstone  chapter and a personal thanks  comes from Master Councillor  Godfrey Robinson to all who  helped with the installation last  month.  Blood Drive  The annual Red Cross Blood:  Donors clinic will be held this  year on April 24, sponsored by  the Kinsmen club of Gibsons.  This year's clinic will be held  at the Gibsons Health Centre  across from the post office. It  will be open from 1:30 to 5:30  in the afternoon and from 6:30  to 8:30 in the evening.  The Kinsmen club is hoping  for the biggest year, and your  support is needed. Remember,  you too may need blood some  day.  Report clinic  There has been much discussion in recent years of the pros  and cons of report cards and letter grading versus percentage  systems. This year all children  in the primary grades at Gibsons Elementary School are receiving different report cards  in which letter grading has been  replaced by teacher comments  on the child's progress and ability.  Mr. G. Cooper with primary  staff memlbers will discuss the  value and purpose of the new  report cards at the PTA meeting April 21 at 8 p.m. in the Library at Elphinstone.

Plan No. 1862 (copyright  No.. 117093)  The need for more living  space, combined with the  dwindling size of building lots,  is making the two-story Colonial  home more and more popular  in cities and smaller communities.  This lovely example of Colonial designing looks well on a  city lot, but blends into a rural  setting equally as well. This is  because of the happy combination of colonial design in/the  house itself with a typically  ranch type of roof over; the  porch and extending over .the  double  carport at the  side.  Enhanced by shutters on the  outside, the living room features large windows front ,and  back, with fireplace on the;outside wall so that lots of space  is left for arrangement of furniture.  An especially desirable feature of this house is the large  family room, adjacent to the  efficiently planned kitchen  which features the U shape so  desired by step saving housewives. Adjacent to the kitchen  also, the den could - double as  a formal dining room, and the  main floor features are completed with a downstairs "powder  room" for convenience.  Somewhat   unusual     is     the  New stamp  honors women  The 50th anniversary of tht  year in which Canada's.women  were first allowed to vote in  federal elections will be commemorated by a Canada Post  Office 5c stamp to be released  May 24, Postmaster General  Jean-Pierre Cote announces.  The new stamp is based on a  design conceived by Helen Fitzgerald of Toronto; it is medium  in size, vertical in format and  produced in colors of mauve,  black and grey. The design symbolizes womanhood upheld by  the power of the ballot incorporated in the pedestal-like support. Miss Fitzgerald has achiev  ed considerable success in the  field of Canadian stamp design;  her work has appeared on six  previous stamps during recent  years.  Twenty-four and one-half million Women's Franchise stamps  have been produced by the lithographic printing process on the  premises of the Canadian Bank  Note Company Limited, Ottawa.

Four large bedrooms and an  unusually large bathroom with  large vanity for family convenience are found upstairs. The  master bedroom has a large  walk in closet or dressing room,  and plumbing "en suite." Other  bedrooms, have large closets  and the stairs feature an open  wall treatment.  This is a beautifully designed  family home, with clean and  dignified outside appearance,  featuring horizontal siding,  shakes or shingles on the roof.  No matter where the, building,  site is located, this house would  look well.  It is designed to the standards of the National Building  Code of Canada for mortgaging  under N.H.A. or conventional  mortgage. Blueprints may be  obtained from the Building Centre (B.C.)

The five denominations to be  issued will be 4c (Peace); 5c  (Justice); 10c (Fraternity) and  15c (Truth), while the 8c stamp  will show the facade of the  Pavilion.  The 4c,stamp may be used  for. postcards and mail for the  Montreal area; 5c denomination for regular mail throughout Canada and for ��� surface  mail for all of the Americas,  the United Kingdom and other  Commonwealth countries, Ireland, France and Spain and the  8c stamp is for airmail purposes throughout Canada and  the United tSates;  The 10c denomination will  cover airmail postage to Bermuda, Mexico, Central and  South America and the West  Indies and surface mail to  countries other than those  where the 5c rate is applicable;  A 15c stamp is for the airmail  rate to Europe, while letters  to Australia, New Zealand and.  Asia can be mailed with a combination of the 10c and 15c denominations.  In other words, the five  stamps will, either singly or in  various combinations, cover  any existing regular or airmail  postage in or from Canada at  the present time.

Promising developments at the  laboratory include a particle  board from bark that requires  no adhesive. The waxes and'  natural adhesives in the bark  cause it to bond under heat and  pressure.  Researchers are also probing  bark use in a lightweight aggregate for building blocks, for  floor tile, and for use in certain plastics. They've also found  that bark may have use in molded products and has possibilities for extruded products as  well.  Significant chemical utilization  of bark is still in the future.  Some of the promising possibilities include use of two bark  chemicals ��� dihydro quercetin  (DHQ) and quercetin (Q). DHQ  can be used to keep fats and  cooking oils from becoming  rancid, and can also be used as  an anti-oxidfant in rubber, as an  ultra-violet absorber in plastics  and in pharmaceuticals. >,  Bark wax has potential in  shoe, floor and furniture polishes; ink holding in carbon paper; and for investment castings. One by-product of wax,  bark balsam, behaves well as  a plasticizer for rubber.  Certain components of _ bark  wax may be used as ltfloricant*  at extremely low temperatures  and have application to etpip-  ment used in space and under  sea explorations, it was noted.  Tannins from bark were important during World. War H to  the leather tarming industry and  were used in oil-well drilling  compounds. Today, tannins are  also used for water: treatment,  boiler scale removal, ore flotation, vat dying of nylon and  sweetening gasoline. Quantities  used are extremely small when  compared to amounts available.  But it may bo economically fea'g  ible in the future to tap this  vast marfcet.  BE A POOL BOOSTER  Now  Representing  the  Distinguished  At the April 4 meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Business and  Professional Women's Club at  Ole's Cove Resort, President  Mrs. L. Dunlop introduced .three  guests then proceeded with the.  club business.  A report on the Lower Mainland regional meeting in "Vancouver in March, which four  club members attended, revealed the highlight of the event  was the luncheon speaker, Mrs.  Kunelius of Calgary, Canadian  Federation U.'N. Fellowship  Award winner for 1966.   7      :  She spoke of her experiences  as a delegate to the Status of  Women commission at the United Nations, since the International Federation of BPW clubs  has consultant status as a nongovernmental agency on this  and the Human Rights commission. She felt that the six weeks  spent at the United Nations  were richly rewarding and that  she had been greatly privileged  to have gained this special  knowledge in international affairs,  During the afternoon session  _N__BRINE  Canadian Made  Luggage  IVEBRESIE  J/etfiiti  TRAIN CASE $15.95  FITTED VANITY 19.95  WEEKEND CASE    19.95  This group represents  only one of many Mc-  Brine  lines   of luggage  See  these  travelling  companions   today  at-���  MARINE  MEN'S WEAR  Limited  1585   Marine���Ph.   886-2116  of the regional meeting, members were presented with the  principles of parliamentary procedure, outlined by Mrs. Hess  of New Westminster, who is also  a member of the staff of the  UiBC extension department.  The question "Why did you  join the Business and Professional Women's Club?" was asked  of all members at the dinner  meeting by Mrs. J. Benjafield,  program chairman. The survey  showed that the international  aspect of the Canadian federation of B.P.W. Clubs and a pre-  knowledge of its work were primary factors.  Other points were mental stim  ulation, the possibilities of self-  improvement through its functions and it was felt that continued encouragement should be  given to women to study and  aim-towards holding public office at all levels of government.  Career counselling and the  giving of bursaries were to be  considered as the work to be  carried out by the club in the  near future. It might be of interest to note that members donate funds, as one .of the. projects of the Canadian Federation  Coast News, April 13, 1967.       7  of B.P.W.

BILL PRICE PHOTOGRAPHY  886-9361  DEAR DORIS  advice from   _ ^  Doris Clark 'if  f love my teacher  DEAR DORIS ��� I actually  believe I'm in love with my  teacher. He is 26 and I am 17.  He is not married but I have  seen him several times with  the same girl.  I'm afraid I'm going to end  up having a nervous breakdown. This is definitely affecting my school work.  Can't Cope  DEAR CAN'T COPE-  Yours is a schoolgirl crush; often happens when a teacher  combines a fine personality  with the.head start of a few  mature years; quite innocently,  on his part.  The antidote is deliberate attention to boys your own age.  Forget their awkward youthful-  ness and enjoy the fun you  have with them. Remember  that you, too, aren't quite as  polished as you are going to be.  DEAR  DORIS  ���  I  am  54  years old. I'm quite satisfied  with my figure except for my  tummy and it's too large.  I've had three children; the  last one was born 25 years ago.  hi those days we were not told  to exercise after childbirth to  help strengthen those muscles;  therefore I feel that is the  cause of the large tummy.  Do you think exercising at  my age will help? I've tried  dieting which helps some, but I  lose weight in the wrong  places, such as my face.  Fat Tummy  DEAR F. T. ��� The winning  combination is exercise plus  diet. I'm sending you my exercise sheet "Be Figure Perfect"  which has some tried and true  bends and stretches for spot reducing. (Available to other  readers for ten cents and a  stamped, self-addressed envelope.)  In addition, here is an approved massage technique for  that spare  tire:  Stretch yourself up to your  full height, pull in your tummy.  Take hold of the surplus fat ���  so-called spare tire ��� with  both hands. Squeeze it, push it,  knead it, from right to left, until the flesh is a bright pink.  Daily.  What you are doing is breaking down the fat cells, so that  the body may assimilate them  more easily to replace the ener  gy foods you are denying yourself by dieting.  DEAR DORIS ��� I am  an  electrical engineer 39 years of  age. Recently I have been toying with the idea of changing  my profession and "taking  a medical course.  Please tell me if there is any  age limit for joining medical  courses. If not which 'universities are likely to accept me, as  [ presume there is a lot of competition from young students  for good universities.  Changing Horses  DEAR   CHANGING  ���  Far  better to change now than  spend a lifetime as a square  peg in a round hole. Matter of  fact, with modern medical gad-  getry, a combination of medicine and electrical engineering  could be quite useful.  My medical consultant even  thinks there's a chance you  could go directly into medicine,  if your credits are good  enough.  There are no age limits we  know of; universities consider  individual equipment and aptitudes rather than age. Have  you given due thought to the  perils of a long lean period; financially?  Best write to the university  (or universities of your choice  and state your case).  To   Amateur   Counsellor ���  Most couples marry because  circumstances throw them together, they have needs and interests in common, and the  male-female attraction seems to  be operating efficiently.  Choosing a mate for life is,  then, largely a matter of blind  choice. Who's to say it is anything like as promising or intelligent as the choices made by  conscientious parents in the far  East? Japanese parents often  search widely and are not easily satisfied.  Young people in Canada need  every bit of coaching they can  get from parents and leaders.  Surely we can at least give  them some standards to go on.  Otherwise they may rely solely  on emotion ��� and many do.  Then they wonder when work-  a-day conflicts reveal a marriage made any place but in  Heaven.  Hi-Gs at conference  (By NICKI WRAY)  Seven of Gibsons Hi-C group  attended an Easter conference  in Richmond. Mrs. Farr took  three members on the low road  and Mr. Merling three via the  upper levels. Naturally, being  a man, he beat the Farr group  by miles.  On the first night, a "Deach  party was going (full blast inside  the large gym. of the South Aran  church. Games were being played to get everyone acquainted.  Many knew each other from previous years, judging from the  large number of enthusiastic  greetings. Shoes flew off, balloons- were stomped on and  crazy skits drew laughing applause in this get-together session. Two talented singers led  a hootenanny, then vespers,  which ended the rather exhausting  evening.  Someone had had the idea oi  an 8 am. pancake breakfast  and for most, billeted far out,  that entailed getting up at 8  a.m.  Tottering to the bus stop, we  groped our way on board and  dozed off for a second. However  the sun woke us up and, ravenous, we trooped into the hall.  They fed us pancakes, rubber  pancakes, plastic pancakes,  cold pancakes, warm pancakes,  and sometimes good pancakes.  Some jokester replaced the syrup with coffee, and several  break,asters cheerfully ate their  pancakes, au cafe! Our table  speaker, a professor from UBC,  gave us ah excellent talk, after  being forced to run around the  table, because he.had put his  elbows upon it.  A day of well-planned activities followed with various presentations, discussion groups,  some free time, lunch and skippers, fancy name for cleaning  up, more discussion, and then  ��� skits. Short skits and long  ones, all funny, one. for every  Hi-C group at the conference.  Skit night was one of the (best  times of the conference!  The last day was much the  same as the second, with presentations, discussions, meals,  and clean-up. Hootenannies and  crazy games went on in every  spare moment. Everyone seemed to have acquired a singing  fever!  One of the presentations was  called Sealed Orders. Several  envelopes were handed out. The  victims had to perform the orders in their envelopes. One or?  der read "Randy MacKenzie is  a little baby. Rock him to sleep  in your lap." Randy is six foot  three and the girl who got the  order is approximately five foot  three.  Before the dance Thursday  night, those who wished to saw  a film on drug addiction which  shook everyone up a little. It  showed an addict going through  the agonies of withdrawal pain.  The dance itself was really  fun. The band played not too  loud,  and not too quietly,  and  just the right number of waltzes.  This   is   very  unusual,   believe  me!        '  At the end of the conference,  at midnight, we filfed into the  hushed church for a short service with communion for those  who wished it. It was very beautiful and unforgettable, and the  memory of that night, arid the  whole conference, will stay with  us for a long time.  The party, in charge of Mrs.  L. H. Farr, Counsellor, included Bob Watson clulb president;  Thelma Volen, treasurer; Nicki  Wray, publicity; Juanita Wray,  Sheila Campbell.  The B.C.

The bank's chairman and pres  ident, G. Arnold Hart, said the  full B of M branch organization,  serving small centres across  Canada as well as major cities,  will resume mortgage lending  under the National Housing Act  and enter the conventional  mortgage field, as empowered  by the revised Bank Act, effective May 1.     .  Branches will commence processing applications immediately, on the basis of 7 percent interest on N.H.A. loans and at  prevailing rates in the areas  concerned for conventional  mortgage loans. 7  "We realize the great need  for mortgage funds- at the present time in the smaller centres  of Canada and we propose to  recognize thfis need in the allocation of mortgage funds," Mr.  Hart said.  "With our strong branch organization, now exceeding 1,000  offices, we are in a position under the revised Bank Act where  we can be of real assistance to  homeHbuyers in all parts of the  country ��� not only in those urban centres where mortgage  funds have tended to concentrate hitherto."  : Under N.H.A. provisions, loans  for new construction will be available to a maximum of 95 percent of the appraised value, and  up to 75 percent for new and existing properties under conventional arrangements.  Loans will not be limited to  single unit residential property  and in some cases will be available for small commercial  and industrial projects.  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  MONDAY  &   THURSDAY  1678 Marine Drive���Gibsons  Phone 886-9843  Royal Bank of Canada announces a person who has a  steady and assured income can  apply to the bank either for a  National Housing Act or conventional mortgage. This new service has been made possible by  the recent revision to the Bank  Act and while there is a practical limit on the number of  mortgages the Royal Bank can  make, the mortgage programs  should help more Canadians become homeowners.  Under the National Housing  Act the Royal Bank will grant  a mortgage to an approved applicant for bundling a new home  and the money borrowed can be  up to'v'&5. percent of the lending  ��� value. The maximum mortgage  obtainable is $18,000.  A conventional mortgage can  be obtained: up to $40,000 providing the amount to be borrowed  does not exceed 75 percent of  the appraised1 value. The big  difference between the two types  of mortgage is, however, in the  purpose for which they can be  granted. A. conventional mortgage can be used to build a new  house or to buy an existing  home, whereas a National Housing Act mortgage is limited to  new construction' only.  The conventional mortgage  can also be granted for re-finane  ing existing mortgages which  the bank explained with this illustration: a person has a first  and second mortage on a residential property. The ��� interest  rate on the second mortgage is  considerably higher than on the  first. A conventional mortgage  should be considered provided  the overall interest rate on the  new mortgage is less than the  average of the interest beting  paid on the existing mortgages.  The local Royal Bank manage  er has" complete details of the  i:new.programs including a 'comprehensive booklet. called Your  Mortgage.

Further interest in air services along the Coast is evidenced by a brief submitted  jointly by the B.C. Airlines,  Nanaimo Airways and Victoria  air services for regular service  ;between "Vancouver and Victoria  Harbor.  ��� Al Campbell, owner and operating manager of Tyee Airways based out of Porpoise  Bay, has already submitted a  brief on behalf of his company  for' the' establishment of a  similar .daily air service between Sechelt, Gibsons and  Vancouver. He is in full accord  with the Vancouver Island operators' submission to the Air  Transport board seeking services between Vancouver,. Victoria Harbor and Nanaimo, "as  it will link up an air run* with  that of Tyee Airways.  Speaking of the Tyee brief  now in the hands of the Ottawa  authorities, Mr. Campbell quoted from one of the several endorsements accompanying his  brief; this from Dr R.. A. C.  Swan, of the Medical Clinic, Sechelt, in which Dr. Swan has  outlined his reasons for supporting the plan:  , The above Airline has applied  for Class in scheduled service  to Vancouver in order to provide sufficient utilization of: its  facilities. In this maritime area  with its unpredictable weather  this carrier has been of enorm  ous 'medical service and indeed  necessity.  Its base here saves some 40  ���minutes in conveying our local  medical men to the scenes of  logging accidents. In addition-  its Norseman aircraft has been  of essential service in the transport of injured loggers both to  our local hospital and to Vancouver in more desperate cases,  and in transfer of seriously ill  patients to Vancouver hospitals.  In addition its local base enables our local doctors to accompany the patient to a Vancouver hospital in the case of  very serious emergencies and  then return to base here. This  is not uossible with an airline  not based locally.  This carrier is trying to upgrade its service which will of  course increase ts usefulness  as a medical transport.  Also a regular scheduled ser  vice would enable us to bring  in such emergency medications  as whole blood at much less  cost than charter rates. The  service would provide excellent  facilities for patient transfer  for those too fragile to be moved by land transport.  The present charter service  also enables the 7|ocal doctors  to visit seriously ill patients in  logging 'camps and isolated  communities which either have  no road access or extremely  lengthy access because of  mountain ranges.  If the Air Transport board  requests I would be willing to  appear to support Tyee from  the medical point of view.���R.  A.  C.

Row after row of plants  but of a lot of talk of the need  for small industrieis on the Sunshine Coast, particularly at Gibsons, two local families decided  . to do something about it, Cliff  Gilker and his son-in-law Peter  Fromager.  Starting in a modest way  three years ago, on what the  partners refer to as a stump  ranch, they have through sheer  bull labor, cleared five acres,  erected a pilot greenhouse producing 6-7,000 tomato plants,  5,000 of vegetables, and a good  assortment of flowers. They  have also established test and  field plots for hyibrid corn,  strawberries and raspberries.  Commencing with seven varieties of corn two years ago,  they have narrowed this down  to five found to be best adapted  to this area. Meantime, extensive plantings are going forward  in the experimental plots. In  another, area nursery stocks  are being brought along.  One of the most- interesting  sights in the Gilker greenhouse,  is the row on row of. tomato  plants, all green and shooting up  with great vigor and awaiting  transplanting by Sunshine Coast  gardeners. Among the tomato  varieties which have been  brought along most successfully in the past two years are  4,000 Devon Potato Leaf, a hybrid tomato brought over from  Jersey by Peter Fromager, a  native of the Channel Isles, who  brought a few seeds with him  and although he forsook farming and livestock to become a  pipefitter, still has a warm spot  in his heart for the land.  He and his wife Diane have  six husky youngsters of their  own, also a five-year-old foster  child, Ambrose, of Indian birth  who fitted in so well with the  Fromager offspring, that he is  now one of them for keeps.  Cliff and Aletta Gilker tooth  lead interesting and active lives.  Mrs. Gilker, a music teacher  with her ARJCTM degree is conducting an interesting class of  kindergarten, some only three  years old.  Mr. Gilker, a native of Gloucester in the eastern maritimes,  had an agricultural upbringing.  He came west and took up with  the fishing industry, to become  Alaska resident manager of the  B.C. Packers and Booth Fisheries from 1925 to 1965, when he  retired, and as is the case of  so many folk who find themselves on the Sunshine Coast,  with his wife occupied in teaching, both happily admit they  were never so busy in all their  lives.  The Gilkers and the Frontagers with their nursery open for  business on Reid Road, are  looking forward to the sale and  . further experimentation of field,  garden and nursery stock.
