Basis of the refusal was the  condition arranged by Minister  of Municipal Affairs Dan Campbell Twho with representatives of  the district agreed that Powell  River would be deleted from the  regional area and that the Sunshine Coast Regional district  would cover- the area from Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet.  Members of the board argued  that Bowen Island's future lay  with. West Vancouver and not  the Sunshine Coast. It was pointed out that senior students are  now attending West Vancouver  schools at the expense of Sunshine Coast ratepayers and that  Bowen was now rapidly becoming a suburb of West Vancouver  through its 20 minute ferry service. ���'������  Inclusion of Bowen Island ter  ritory in the Sunshine Coast re-  nightmare, directors, felt. The  gion would be an administrative  motion which was voted unanimously was against inclusion because of a previous agreement  concluded with the government.  The regional meeting was  called following - the arrival of  a letter from the department of  municipal affairs notifying the  board that Bowen Island' would  be included' as part of the regional district.  Discussion reviewed recommendations that were made during the formative days' of ��� the  regional district. It was then  that the f minister decided with  theinteim directors that the  Sunshine Coast Regional District would extend from Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet and that  it would be a unit as it stands.  At the conclusion of discussion members of the board decided on the letter which would  go to Hon. Mr. Campbell revealing their refusing to consider Bowen Island as a part of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District. ,1  6 month ferry job  Bids oh reconstruction work  at Langdale Ferry slip, opened  Friday, gave the contract to/the  Fpaser7 River Piiedriving company/: of New, Westminster for  a total of $484,549. it is expected  the work may cover a six month  period.  High tender from Greenlees  Piiedriving Co.-Ltd., was $676,-  633. There were six tenders in  all." ' . ���������/';.   >���;  The Fraser River company  will be concerned with reconstruction work at the docking  end of the terminus. This will  involve dredging more than  50,000 yards of fill to be placed  at the end of the present ferry  slip  area, adding  possibly  an  other. 100 feet out to deep water. 7 ;,'.;:; . :':������. , j . . -::J  Available information reveals  that there will be two ferry  slips at the end of the new extension. They will be on two  arms, one to the south and the  other to the north with docking  facilities on each. , ���. > ~-,���:,-  " Work on "the area between "the  highway and. the toll booth will  involve government workers,  probably from the roads department who will clear the land  purchased from the Salvation  Army. First reports stated that  a strip of 50 feet on the Salvation Army side of Langdale  creek will be utilized for traffic use.  Summer influx heavy  Real estate operators all report that enquiries about proper  ty along the Sunshine Coast continue strong. The past summer  has seen plenty of new faces in  the area, they report.  Ernie Burnett, the Coast News  On the Waterfront reporter,  found the harbor attracted more  sail boats this year. He was of  the opinion the larger American  cruisers found their way to up-  coast points rather than Gibsons. His report will be found  on the back page.  Walt Nygren whose marine  business at the head of the  wharf reports in a story on page  six that enquiries through his  establishment were considerably  greater than last year.  Ferry traffic through the sum-,  mer showed an increase over  last year both in general volume  and in the number, it is expected of out of province travellers.  Rumors continue about the  new road to bypass Gibsons  from the ferry terminus but  there does not appear to be  anything definite on that at this  time.  In another story on page one,  some detail of the almost $500,-  000 the B.C. Ferry Authority expects to spend this winter on  improving terminal facilities.  Some increase in provincial  travellers was noted in the area  as the result of B.C. Ferry  Authority advertising in Vancouver papers on the merits of  a Sunshine Coast tour.  Zhivago an epic film  Boris Pasternak's celebrated  novel Dr. Zhivago takes place  entirely in Russia, but bringing  it to the screen as it will be  shown at the Twilight Theatre  Sept. 6 to 12, MGM was involv-  ' ed in a giant international operation which took production  units from England to Spain,  Finland and finally to the Canadian Rockies . where many- of  the specific scenes were shot in  and around Banff before the  final editing and .scoring was  done at the MGM studios at Culver City, Calif.  Rarely has a motion picture  combined the talents of film  makers and celebrities from so  many countries. Of the nine Dr.  Zhivago stars contributing to  the six Academy Awards won  for this production included  Geraldine Chaplin, born in America and educated in Switzer  land; Julie Christie, born in India; Tom Courtnay, Alex Guinness, Ralph Richardson and Rita  Tushingham are British Siobhan  McKenna hails from Ireland,  Omar Sharif from Egypt and  Rod Steiger from the UjS.  A group of 3,500 film extras  participated in the Moscow  street scenes and the Red riots  in this spectacular picture, including 32 White Russians now  living in Spain.  World wide requirements for  the filming of Dr. Zhivago entailed a record total of 3,000,000  passenger miles of travel, 23 air  lines were used, eight railways  in various countries and international steamship lines based  in numerous countries were also  employed in shipping much of  the heavy production equipment  between America, England and  the various countries involved.  Couple missing  in small boat  A 20 foot clinker boat with  two people aboard is missing  somewhere between Secret Cove  and Vancouver. Aboard were a  Mr. and Mrs. Bickerstaff of  Vancouver.

MAIL DELAYED  A letter mailed on Monday of  last week took five days to get  from Sechelt to Gibsons. The  letter from the office of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District at Davis Bay, was placed  in the Sechelt post office late  Monday afternoon and was received by the Coast News on  Saturday morning. The Coast  News mail box is cleared every morning by 10:30 a.m.  It is understood that some of  the regional directors did not  receive their mail until quite  late.

Kitten back home again  Picking up the last copy of  the Coast News available in the  place where she shops, Mrs.  Henry Guenther, Halfmoon Bay  area, spotted the picture of her  lost cat (shown above).  This cat at that time was in  the hands of Mrs. A. Davidson  of Abbs Road, Gibsons. It was  found in the Trout Lake region,  s veral miles from Halfmoon  Bay when Mrs. Davidson stopped her car and got out on a  Sunday afternoon. Now the cat  is back with the Guenther family. Mrs. Guenther phoned Mrs.  Davidson and the young puss is  back home again.  Water community need  Roberts Creek Community association is preparing for an  active season of meetings as  a result of varied municipal activities through the Regional  council  taking place.  So far the regional council  has placed buildings, plumbing  and sewage under specific bylaws. The regional council is  also delving into the business  of supplying water, something  which Roberts Creek residents  need badly, especially after a  dry summer.  The Roberts Creek Community  club meets on the third Wednesday evening of each month in  the Roberts Creek community  hall. Mrs. Jen Monrufct is protein secretary.  The club has a water committee now organized to work  in conjunction with other areas  in the event that water becomes a flowing issue before  too long.

Bowen Island quandary  Amove to place Bowen Island within the jurisdiction of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District should be examined objectively.  At a special meeting as a committee of the whole last Wednesday night in the Regional District office at Davis Bay, members  of the district board considered the proposition and decided they  could not see how Bowen Island would fit into the present regional  setup.  . . 7   ' ' "7"..  There are valid reasons for this. Looking back to the past  and comparing it with the present, should be reason enough to substantiate the-board's decision. At one period Union Steamships  maintained the transportation by boat to most points on Bowen  Island, Howe Sound and upcoast to Sechelt and beyond, and Bowen  Island was within the circuit of the area from Vancouver to Pender Harbour. This steamship line is now non-existent and Bowen  Island's means of transportation to the mainland is a 20-minute  ferry link to Horseshoe Bay. Any link there might have been with  the Sunshine Coast is completely severed.  Its secondary school pupils are sent to West Vancouver at the,  expense of the Sunshine Coast school district. There is practically  no communication today between Bowen and the Sunshine Coast  area. Bowen residents are rarely seen on Sunshine Coast soil. What  resident would take two ferries to do business in Gibsons when  the one ferry to Horseshoe Bay opens for them all the attractions  available in West Vancouver and Vancouver.  Administrative arrangements between Bowen Islanders and  the Sunshine Coast would be cumbersome. Geographically Bowen  Island has no attachment with the Sunshine Coast, no matter how  you view the problem. Therefore the Regional District board in its  thinking that Bowen Islanders have more in common with, mainland organizations have taken a logical view.  Some time ago when the Regional district was formed, Powell  River was to be part of the setup. However Municipal Minister Dan  Campbell came to the decision that such an arrangement was unsuitable and arranged that the Sunshine Coast would be a separate  regional entity. It is to be hoped the minister is not going to burden  this Regional district with an appendage which will become an  unnecessary burden. What is the opinion of most Bowen Islanders?  Acceptance questioned  The oddities that arise during one's lifetime are puzzling. Take  for instance those days when poetry and prose reading were for  intelligentsia tea sipping aided by one's little pinkie extended to  the full revealing charm, if not grace. Today poetry and prose  readings connected with a tea or coffee house appear to be minus  charm and grace.  Such institutions are developing resistance in the minds of a  good many people. There is wide disparity between the efforts of  the local Arts Society in its desire to advance the social life of a  community and that of the- coffee house type of the same thing.  The Bohemian type of existence of the past was without responsibility. Socially it had a black mark against it. What has happened since is that Bohemianism has spread in a debilitating manner in what appears to be an effort at the breakdown of our society. Whether that society is more or less perfect is one aspect. Another is that there is no reason why it should be torn down by individuals who shirk responsibility.  Some modern art and the noise which passes as music, along  with an exaggerated desire to express one's feelings in way-out  poetry and prose, may be an expression of the times. Attitudes  have a way of changing. Long hair music of the past is not the  long hair music of this age.  The attitude of Gibsons councillors in holding up a license for  an establishment which openly desired to set up a coffee house  for the purpose of attracting youth is the only one members of  council can take. No matter how sincere the applicant might be,  the thought lingers that it would develop in a manner contrary to  the general acceptance of the public desire for the village of  Gibsons.  Early this year, when snow  still swirled around the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, a  member of parliament and several university students met  and made plans to conduct a  public opinion poll. The idea  was simply to send an interviewing team across Canada to  find out what people felt were  the  most  important  issues.  It' was not to be a scientific  poll; it was to be a politician's  poll, and the politician was He-  ward Grafftey, MP from Brome- ���  Missisquoi in Quebec, so the  Progressive Conservative Public Opinion Poll came into being.  The poll found there are only  four issues in all Canada that  can be considered national issues in the sense they are of  true and intense concern to  Canadians from coast to coast.  They are, in order of impor-.  tance: .7  1. Foreign Affairs.  72. Taxes and the Cost of Living.  -3;  National  Unity.  4. Political Leadership.  These four areas each share  two characteristics: (1) in almost every poll they were emphasized; (2) on each issue  there is a consensus. The consensus can be summarized as  follows:  1. Foreign Affairs: Canadians  are intensely interested in what  is happening -in' ��� the world  around them. Arising out of this  interest is the desire to have  leadership, which, according to  answers in the polls, should include (a) taking definite stands,  and (b) explaining those stands  to the people. There is also a  majority view that Canadian  foreign policy should be written  in Ottawa rather. than Washing-  tori, thus giving it greater Can-  dian content.  2. Taxes and the Cost of Living: Tremendous concern is  shown for the amount of money  it is taking people to live these  days. While complaints about  taxes have been around as long  as taxes themselves/ the problem of inflation has not. In general, people want government  to exercise more restraint in  spending so as to keep taxes  down; they want people living  on fixed    incomes,    especially  pensioners, to be given a break;  and they want government to  tackle inflation before it prices  food right out of the reach of  the people.  3. National. Unity: In every  province of Canada there is a  strong feeling that one of Canada's biggest problems is disunity. To cure this, many people  feel, a sense of national purpose must be injected into matters of state. When this has  been done, and a greater feel-  ��� ing of national unity achieved,  many other issues, according  to numerous people should take  care of themselves/       7     .  Confederation needs a strong  central government to-direct its  course,   is     another     majority  feeling  across  the  country.   In  several   provinces,   particularly  (but   not   exclusively)   Quebec,  this   feeling  is  balanced,   however,  by  the  desire   to   guard  and guarantee provincial rights.  For   many     people,      national  unity is a euphemism for keep-,  ing Quebec    in    Confederation.  Yet   for   others,   also   a   large  group,     it     takes  on a much  broader meaning.  v    4. Political Leadership: There  are at least three qualities the  Canadian   people   find   lacking  in present political leaders,  in  all parties.   In  the  almost  unanimous  view   of  people   from  St.   John's   to  Vancouver   (although it was  not stressed  as  much in the Atlantic region as  elsewhere),     men    aspiring to  leadership    roles    should    be:  younger, because "a young and  challenging nation requires new  men with new ideas"; bilingual,  because   "anybody   who  wants  to lead a nation that has two  language groups should be able  to     communicate     with  them  both"; be able to set priorities,  because "Canada  has a lot of  things to do, but we can't unfortunately    do   them    all    at  once."  These four are really the only  issues that emerge and are  clearly recognizable right across  Canada; the other; issues, like  numerous and multi-colored  threads, are woven together into some kind of national fabric,  but the pattern of it is not always clear. There are two reasons for this. First, issues emphasized in some parts of the  country may scarcely show up  COPYRIGHl  APPLIED FO*  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers.

COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Returning from a Saturday  night dance in Gibsons George  Frith, Ben Lang and Jack  Ingles were involved in the  capture of a youth who had  stolen some goods from the  Co-op   store   and  other places.  Several entries in vegetable  classes at the PNE exhibited  by W. Elliott fo West Sechelt  drew first prizes.  Roberts Creek Badminton  club after a hectic summe decided to lay off for the month  of September so as to accumulated renewed vigor for the fall  months.  Considerable pottery made by  Mrs. Jack Reeves and Mrs. A.  TV. Lowe were exhibited in Gib  sons annual Fall fair and drew  considerable praise.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Ratepayers association plans an early September  meeting to get the organization  rolling again.  Jalopy racing during weekends attracted people to the  track at West Sechelt.  Wes. Hodgson rescued one  man from the saltchuck of Gibsons bay when a boat carrying  three people flipped over. The  others swam to.shore.  Mrs. Jean Wyngaert won the  aggregate award in four out  of six classes at the fall fair  in Gibsons.  Q. A man owes me some  money. 1 have a chattel mortgage on his car. He won't pay  me and won't let me on his  property to seize the car. I  have been to the police but  they don't seem to want to help.  I have been told to see the  prosecutor. What should I do?  A. Neither the prosecutor nor  the police will assist you unless  a crime has been' committed.  From what you have said, you  have purely a civil claim. All  our law may in general be  divided into criminal law and  civil law. Criminal law is concerned with offences against  the Queen or, if you prefer,  against society ��� such as robbery, theft, breaking and entry.  Civil law is concerned with  quarrels between individuals.  These two branches of the law  are quite separate and criminal  and civil trials take place in  different courts, before different  magistrates, toy different procedures, according to different  standards of proof, and with  different results.  The one act may, however,  result in two legal proceedings  ��� criminal and civil. For example,   an   accident  causd by  POINT  OF LAW  oy ~/r f^racticintf aLcLwyr  drunken driving, the drunk may  be charged criminally by the  crown with drunken driving, by  the innocent party for car damages, injuries or doctors' bills.  Your claim being purely civil  in nature, the public authorities  will not assist you. You cannot  use force to seize the car. If  the debtor has possession of it  and resists your seizure by  force, you must back down ���  or. you would be committing a  crime ��� not him. You should  hire a bailiff to do the seizing.  If they are unsuccessful, you  will have to sue and obtain a  court order. Alternatively ��� or  in addition ��� you should see  your own lawyer who will sue  civilly for the debt.  A PERFECT GEM  The nest of the hummingbird  is a marvellous creation. Made  of moss and tiny rootlets, covered with lichen, lashed with  cobwebs and lined wich thistledown ���- truly a fairy structure.  John Burroughs wrote: The  woods hold.not another gem as  the   nest  of  the  hummingbird.  SLIPPERY  STAIRS  CURE  To help avoid nasty falls  from slippery stairs leading to  the basement, which too often  are poorly lighted and steep,  try painting them a light color  and sprinkle sand over the surface while the paint is still wet.  The, sand will absorb the color  and.beuhnoticeable^ and| when  the paint dries the treads will  be non-slip.  elsewhere. For example, Indian  Affairs are seldom mentioned  except in the West. And secondly, there are issues that are  mentioned frequently in most  parts of the country, , but on  which there is no nation-wide  consensus. For instance, social  welfare was often discussed,  but people in some parts of  the country are adamently opposed to it, while others feel  just as strongly that social welfare measures should be extended.  It is now possible to put to-,  gether a national listing. Care  has been taken to assess proper weight to each issue so  that when they are placed together,, an accurate and balanced nation-wide picture is presented. The 17 most important  issues are:  1. Foreign Affah":?., .   .  2. Taxes and the Cost of Living.  3. Leadership.  4. Economic  Development.  5. National Unity.  6. Social Welfare.  7. Government of the Country.  8. Housing the.

VOLUNTEER FIRE SERVICES Coast News, Sept. 7, 1967.  Samuel Hearne on his journey  to the Coppermine, 1770. He was  the first man to reach the Arctic overland fromv Hudson Bay.  After working for three years  as a mate on the ships of the  Hudson's Bay Company, young  Hearne was given command of  the company's exploring expeditions inland from Hudson Bay.  It was from Fort Prince of  Wales at the mouth of the  Churchill River on Hudson Bay,  that Hearne set out in 1770 on  one of the most remarkable  journeys ever made.  From the Indians Hearne had  heard of hills composed of copper;) all in: handy lumps like  heaps of pebbles. Accompanied  by Chief Matonabee and a group  of Chipewyans he  reached the  mouth of the Coppermine River  on the Arctic Ocean after an  eight-month trek.  The company had hoped to  establish a permanent shipping  port on the Arctic but this idea  was quashed when Hearne saw  the great ice-packs stretching  from shore to horizon. He found  no hills of copper, but only one  recognizable piece! of ore in an  area that is now being re-explored by modern methods.  Hearne discovered Great  Slave Lake on the return journey. In all he covered 1700 miles  of some of the bleakest territory in Canada. Parts of his  trail have yet to be trodden by  any other white man.

GOODING, Secretary  Fr*m tbt Imperial Oil Collection  ParttolT  checks inlet  A , recent archaeological survey of Bute Inlet and parts of  the northern Gulf of Georgia,  has added significantly to the  slowly-growing archaeological  map of the province, reports  Donald Abbott, provincial anthropologist.  A seven-member field party  from the Provincial Museum  carried out the survey from  the converted 85-foot tug Point  Hope, donated to the museum  for a week by the owners, Mr.  and Mrs. Richard I.

Coast News  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2622  Health Act  The minister of health services and hospital insurance has  announced that Orders-in-Coun-  cil have been approved covering two sets 7of regulations under the Health Act, public swimming pool regulations and sewage disposal regulations.  Swimming pool regulations,  which do riot cover those in  private homes and apartment  houses, have been promulgated  in the interests of the health and  safety of all users, especially  visitors to the province and our  own residents who travel  throughout British Columbia.  In "addition to general safety  features in construction and design of pools, regulations cover such important points as adequate visibility and satisfactory  bacterial level of the water, absence of greasy and slippery  poolside surfaces' and availability of attendants and lifesav-  ing equipment. Operators of existing pools will be allowed until Jan. 1 1969 to meet the new  standards;  'Sewage disposal regulations  apply mainly to unorganized and  other areas where septic tanks  are the means of sewage disposal. Permits and subsequent  approval by the medical health  officer will be required for all  new installations. There- are  standards for the design and  placement of the septic tank  and the absorption field. Tank  materials must meet government standards. The regulations  cover schools and other larger  buildings in addition to private  residences.  All persons planning construction where sewage disposal by  septic tank is involved are advised to contact their medical  health officer or the health unit  public health inspector for information concerning the regulations.

Nature's Scr,  Herbs,- were an important  source of food, medicine, scent  and flavor for the early settlers  who planted sriiall herb gardens  as soon as enough land was  cleared for the precious seed.  Many marvellous cures were  attributed to herbs, and recipes  were handed down from generation to generation.  The herb garden . at Black  Creek Pioneer Village is laid  out in the same manner as the  settlers' of more than 100 years  ago.  Here is a sampling of the 34  varieties of herbs and their  early-day  significance :  Archangel: A perennial with  angelic healing powers, warded  off plague, made the heart  merry, drove away witches  and drew splinters.      '.. .  Borage: An annual���a borage  flower floating in a cup was  always presented to a knight  departing for the Crusades to  give him courage.  Comfrey: A perennial ��� used  for ruptures and broken bones.  The Pennsylvania Germans  fried the root in lard for treatment of wounds and bruzses.  Dill: An annual��� used as a  preventative for obesity. Seeds  were also called "Meeting  House" seeds in New England  because they were often chewed in church during a long service.  Rue: A perennial ��� improved  sight,  sharpened the wits,  cui-  ed   madness,   guarded   against7  plague, drove out devils. Tine-1  ture was used by Pennsylvania  Germans to cure stomach disorders.  Southern Wood or Old Man:  A perennial ��� was considered  an antidote for deadly poisons  and also was used as a hair  restorer and cure for ruptures,  convulsions and sciatica. It was  also an insect preventive for  ants and moths.  Tansy: A perennial ���soaked  in buttermilk for nine.days and  then used to wash faces therewith, causing maids to look  very fair.  Wild Marjoram: A perennial  ��� strengthened . the stomach  and head, restored the appetite  and was also used as an antidote for poisons.  FRANK   E.

HIGH  STYLE  CONTEMPORARY DESIGN  Plan No. 11375 (copyright  No. 117093)  This 7 s a high style contemporary design that makes utmost use of building area to  create a home smartly up to  date, with maximum living  space.  Good designing has combined  with dollar value to produce  a home of distinction and  uniqueness, particularly suitable for a level lot with a view  to the front.  The entry is through the  finished foyer on the grade  level. Stairs to the upper floor  are judiciously set where they  will not impede future expansion of the basement area into  additional rooms.  Contemporary styling shows  sloping ceilings in the living  dining area, with plaster between the glu-lam beams. The  kitchen is practical, and compactly arranged, in U shape,  with a large family eating  nook!  Three bedrooms across the  back of the house with plumbing "en suite" and a walk in  closet in the master bedroom,  combine with well > designed  main bathroom to complete the  upper floor amenities.  The basement area can be  developed into additional bedrooms, recreation or family  room, or if the prospective  owner is a professional man,  into a study or consultation  rooms.  The installation  of  an  inter  com system between the front  door and the upper level living  quarters eliminates the necessity of running down stairs to  answer the door bell each time  it rings.  The roof of a two car carport doubles as a sun deck,  covered for maximum use in  all types of weather, and the  deck extends around the front  of the house1 for additional convenience.  The strictly utilitarian look  of many of these houses, is  avoided in the exterior of this  house, by the use of brick, or  ceramic tile at the front under  the deck, plywood ornamental  panels, vertical siding and  stucco, while the beams of the  sloping living room ceiling project to add interest.  Practically and aesthetically  speaking, this house is, dollar  for dollar, .the best investment  the prospective home owner  can make, besides being a joy  to live in with all its potential  living space.  It is designed to the standards  of the National Building Code  fo Canada, and blueprints for  N.H.A. or, conventional mortgage approval can be obtained  by writing the Building Centre  (B.C.)

Coast-Capilano Constituency  Special status for Quebec?  I am against it. So is nearly  everyone else who lives in the  west. So any political party  which backs this cause is bound  to loose ground in English  speaking Canada.  One party is already tully  committed. This is the NDP.  At two of its latest annual conventions, its delegates have  voted overwhelmingly in favor  of the Two Nation Concept. So  NDP candidates in the next  federal election will have their  hands full trying to explain bow  they, personally, would vote as  MPs if they were . sent back  to Ottawa.  The < Liberal party, having  tested the opting out formula  has now turned its face firmly  against the idea of making any  special concessions to Quebec.  This new attitude is due, in  large measure, to the convictions and the resolves of two  new ministers���Jean. Marchand  and Pierre Elliott Trudeau in  justice. They feel that French  speaking Canadians should be  given equal treatment along  with other Canadians no more  and no less.  Now it is the Conservative's  turn. Conservative leadership  candidates are trying their  luck in the self same dangerous  waters from which the Liberals,  with some difficulty, have recently   extracted   themselves.  Why? Because about one  quarter of all the delegates going to the Conservative leadership convention in Toronto will  come from Quebec. So the candidate who is best able to give  voice to the popular prejudices  of many French speaking Canadians may well think that he  has a good chance of becoming  John Diefenbaker's successor.  Personally, I think most French  speaking Canadians do not  think  of  themselves  as  under  privileged. They don't want  special treatment from Ottawa.  But the excitable politicians ���  and most leadership candidates  are excitable these days���tends  to go overboard. If he does,  and if he makes serious commitments in this connection, he  will do so.at the nation's peril.  Recently a so-called Thinkers  Conference was held by the  Conservative party in Quebec  City. The leading spokesman  for the special status cause was  Marcel Fairbault. Perhaps he  went farther than he intended.  But after listening to several  arrogant lectures from some of  our delegates from English  speaking Canada, he warned  that Quebec had to be given  some degree of special status.  Otherwise the country will blow  up. This caused many Conservative policy thinkers to alter  their course. It certainly affected the statements some of  that party's leadership candidates have been making since  the conference ended.  The tactic, from now on, will  probably be to accuse the Liberals of being a centralist party  ��� of trying to keep too much  power in Ottawa's hands ��� and  of down grading the authority  of the provinces. Also, in Quebec, they will be saying that  there has .been a break of  trust. The Pearson government  in Ottawa has been entering  fields of provincial jurisdiction  without receiving appropriate  authorization to do so.  Most of this is fiction. Marcel  Fairbault, like many French  speaking Canadians purposely  ignores the intentions of the  Fathers of Confederation. They  were centralists with a vengeance. Here, for example, is  what Sir John A. Macddnald  had to say during the Confederation debates:  "We have strengthened the  general government.   We   have  Coast News, Sept. .7, 1967.       5  given to general legislature all  the great subjects of legislation.  We have conferred on them,  not only specifically and in detail, all the powers which are  incident to sovereignty, but we  have expressly declared that  all subjects of general interest,  not distinctly and exclusively  conferred upon the local governments, and local legislatures,  shall be conferred upon the  general  government itself."

Beneficial effects of combining ihe new school board office  with the regional board office  in one building were discussed  at Friday night's meeting of the.  regional board in Gibsons municipal hall.  This would mean both would  have available the same tax  roll and other genera} lists which  operating through IBM systems  would greatly facilitate work of  both organizations.  Commenting on the fact that  the regional board and councils  of Sechelt and Gibsons were obtaining the services of one solicitor, for legal work, C. D. Mac  Quarrie, of Union of BjC. Municipalities, Director Gilker described the action as a demonstrable example of co-operation.  At    present    Gibsons    school  board is committed to build a  school board office on the site  of the former school hall, after  the hall is moved towards the  rear. The department of education has allowed the board the  sum of $54,000 for work on the  office.  The department has given the  school board the go-ahead to  get plans ready for the board's  office. In the meantime overtures may be expected from the  regional board to incorporate  its office in the same structure.

By* A. B. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Although most landscape  architects avoid using or advocating the use of shrubs with  colored foliage in landscape  planting, I feel that there is  definitely a place for them.  There is, of course, a big difference between planning a  garden so that all materials  will enhance and complement  one another, and planning a  garden for the plants and plantings you enjoy.  The first plants to come to  mind are the shrubby dogwoods, including several with  variegated foliage and colorful  bark. Best of these are the  Spaeth dogwood, with yellow  and green variegation and the  variegated dogwood, which has  white leaves marked with a  band of green. These are , extremely attactiye and are' almost velvety underneath.  The best and most reliable  purple-leaved cherry is the  purpleleaf sand cherry, which  not only produces deep purple  leaves all summer but white  flowers with purple stamens i n  the spring. A similar tree,  which would' be admirably  suited for planting near the  patio, * is the purple-leaved  chokecherry or the Shubert  chokecherry, which has large  purple leaves all, summer long.  This tree will be in; every  nurseryman's list in a year or.  so, since it is ruggedly hardy  and quite distinct.  It would be hard to find a  faster - growing purple - leaved  shrub than. the Arctic willow.  This graceful small shrub-  makes a good hedge or specimen shrub and may be pruned  to any shape when it is.���quite  young.     7 V;.-;.;-  The elders, which have some  good cloor forms, are brightest  in full sun but they will withstand shade- The European-  golden elder has yellow foliage,  and the variegated elder has  white and green leaves of distinctive form. The. berries of  both shrubs, if you can gather  enough, make good elderberry  wine since these iare forms of  the European species. The  feathery golden elder has  feathery golden foliage and  bright red fruit.  The Royal Purple smoke tree  is perhaps among the best of  all shrubs for colored foliage.  It has beautiful deep-purple  leaves, and its reddish plumose  flower stems in July last well  into September. There is no  time during summer or fall  when this delightful shrub is  not attractive.  Many people are often disappointed when they buy the  golden mock-orange for they  expect to see it produce yellow flowers. However, the  golden foliage for which it is  named, adequately makes up  for any illusions they may have  DEPARTMENT  OF  PUBLIC  WORKS OF CANADA  TENDERS  SEALED TENDERS addressed  to Supervisor of Tendering  Dept. of Public Works, 2nd  Floor, Pacific Palisades, 747  Bute Street, Vancouver 5, B.C.  and endorsed "TENDER FOR  APPROACH AND FLOAT RENEWAL.

The few creamy-white flowers  it produces may not be showy  but will make their presence  felt by their pleasant but extremely strong odor. Plant this  shrub on its own where you  need a good rounded specimen  or use it to bring out the  bronze, silvery or red foliage  effect of other colored plants.  For a tall shrub or tree, I  would not hestitate to recommend the golden popular. It  does not have the stupendous  vigor of the common populars  but it does have golden leaves,  which look like those of a small  maple. The leaves have wooly  "rfaces on both sides.

Irrepressibly young describes  the mood of the new fashions  high-lighted by wrap-around  kilts, mini skirts with chain  belts, short tunic dresses and  abbreviated jumpers. Communicating the same ingenue spirit  are the above-the-knee pant  dresses, the mini jumpsuits and  the crisply tailored bermuda  shorts. All travel in the same  fashion circle with knee socks,  co-ordinating stockings, hats  , and high boots.  As with all new seasons and  fashions, cotton fabrics play an  important role.

For the dime,  the critic would be expected to  compose, print and produce  one edition of the local newspaper and deliver it to. Russell's  home.  Russell stipulated one condition: The contents of your  newspaper with all the news ,  that's fit to print, must (include  more reading ��� material than  contained in the current best  seller.    ;   ;  The editor then indicated that  this reading should comprise  the latest accounts of meetings  of the town fathers, the parks  board, the school:boards, secondary and primaryy the social  events, the hospital board, the  cemetery board, with such an-  cillaries as; births, marriages  and deaths.  Also, picture of a local coming event, free of charge, on  every page. For that solitary  dime, he went on, we'll expect  to see the mayor turning the  sod for new construction.

H. Potter and Son, Liverpool,  England, in 1876. This beautiful sailing ship changed hands  several times and in 1907 her  deep sea career ended. She was  found half-submerged off the  Oregon coast and taken in tow  to Astoria. In 1911 she was resold and became a coal hulk for  the OPR out of Vancouver. Finally she became a logging operation breakwater for the Co-  mox Logging Co.  Back in 1964 Mr. Singlehurst  won honors at the Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver fairs.

"Has that touchdown been on INSTANT PLAYBACK vet?'*  On the Waterfront  (By ERNIE iBURNETT)  The summer is over for most  people, and ' now it's back to  school and back to work, but  with memories of a wonderful  summer. For those who were  lucky enough to spend their holidays along our coast you could  not have had it better. With all  our good weather, traffic was  down in the bay. Yet there are  hundreds more boats on the water. Last year there were far  more American boats came in  than this year. With the improve  ment of areas further up coast,  many of the larger boats are  going on by us, and staying further up.  This year showed a big swing  to   sail  boating,   and   many  of  them were former power boat  owners. There was also a great  number of women boat operators this year, mostly on sail  boats.  The fishing has been down this  year, though there is still time  to get in some good fall fishing.  After the Labor Day holiday,  it gets very quiet in the bay,  with the departure of the people other sounds came, the  sounds of the water fowl returning, the sounds I love to  hear. So for now, good luck,  and be a good sportsman.  Where did Canadian  agriculture begin?  At least 400 years ago, on  the shores of the St. Lawrence  and in the Georgian Bay region  of Ontario, bands of Indians  were tilling the soil and raising  crops.
