Families in the  area wishing to enroll their children in the school are asked to  phone 885-9744.

The two charges were driving  without using reasonable due  care and attention. Walker paid  both fines.  Organize to  aid Red Cross  Mrs. Ruth Mitchell, president of the local Red Cross  working group, has been,asked  to head the Roberts Creek district Red Cross annual campaign  for funds. Mrs. Mitchell feels  that she can take care of the  funds and the bookkeeping, but  is not up to walking the roads  and ringing doorbells, as she  has done in the past.  She is therefore appealing to  young women who would be will  ing to shoulder this responsibility, even to small areas near  their homes. It would likely take  but a few hours. Unless, of  course, the job becomes too social with too many delays for  cups of tea. This, too, has happened in the past.  Eight members attended the  first of the season meeting on  Thursday and started on the  sewing and cutting which will  keep them working steadily all  year. There is an urgent need  for more workers.  Before closing camp for the  season, the J. T. Arthur family  are entertaining Mr. and Mrs.  C. R. Sebastian of Regina, and  Mr. and Mrs. R. Mainwaring.  Mr. and Mrs. T. M Hartley of  Calgary, are guests of Mr. and  Mrs. L. R. Smythe for two  weeks.  UCW THRIFT SALE  A United Church Women's  thrift sale will take place Friday, Oct. 13 in the church hall.  There will be good used clothing, white elephants, plants,  books and other articles on  sale.  FIVE PAY $20  Five speeders appeared in  Magistrate's court Monday and  were fined $20 each.  Forty-two out of 52 graduates  at Elphinstone Secondary school  commencement exercise Saturday night heard . sage advice  from Mr. Lome Smith, a former  teacher at Elphinstone school  and now principal of the 7 RX!.  Vocational Institute at Burnahy.  He advised them that their  education was only beginning  and was not completed becaiise  they} were graduating. He urged  them to make use of their leisure time and regard graduation  as the beginning of their education. ��� . 7;r'  Elphinstone Principal W. S.  Potter led the profession of graduates to the platform and7 it  was noticeable that the male,  ^eo-ri$eme]_4^  platform numbered 10 out of  14 who were listed as graduating. There were 42 on the platform.  ed < by-product and once gone  you will never get it back. Think  for a moment of the quarter-  hour in the , morning before  breakfast; the odd half-hour after breakfast, remember the  chance to read or to figure or  to think with concentration on  your career. -  Remember, he said, that man  is wise who avoids boredom by  keeping, his mind wide open and  responsive to what is going on  about him. But remember, this  involves effort. He repeated the  remark that their education was  just beginning  just now beginning. If they were  persistent in their attempt to  learn more and more about life  he could assure them that they  will be much happier. It was by  work that we attain our best  sense of achievement. Dr. Wilder Penfield, prominent neurosurgeon was once asked what  he could teach adults and his  reply was "constructive use of  idle time."  Continued learning was an urgent social responsibility. Many  adults found that when they left  school or college there was a  vast range of things they did not  know and that many of the  things they knew had changed.  The broader your education becomes so does your wisdom and  understanding. *  :: The man; who is always killing  time is really killing his own  chances in life. Carry on with  your education and utilize all  your odd moments. This will increase your store of knowledge  and increase your chance of success. Remember, he warned,  this is notthe end of your education^ but the beginning.  Hotel-iiiarina  Rev. Barry Jenks of St. Hilda's church gave the invocation  then Principal Potter aided by  teachers and others presented  the awards. Diplomas were presented by Mr. Gordon Johnson,  superintendent of schools for  this district. The valedictory address was delivered by Lorna  Sneddon and Miss Mary Lamb  sang the solo My Best to You  which, followed by The Queen,  concluded the ceremonies.  Mrs. E. V. Freer was pianist.  This year's grade 12 class prepared the Centennial theme decorations which were simple yet  effective and flowers were provided by Mrs. F. J. Wyngaert,  Mrs. R. Stroshein and Mrs. Ruth  McDonald.  Addressing graduating students Mr. Smith said he still  looked upon them as his kids.  It was the fifth graduation ceremony he and his wife had attended at Elphinstone and he  felt honored at being requested  to address them at this important milestone in their lives.  Mr. Smith wished that he  could outline a format of life for  the graduates whereby happiness and success would be predetermined. He urged graduates  to remember that this was not  the end of their educational career. It was in fact only the beginning. What was going on in  the world has a greater influence on them today than it had  in the old world. Today's world  was shrinking and what occurred on the other side was felt  more quickly.  Discussing the use of leisure  time he said in these days much  of the profit and sometimes the  whole of success depends on  utilizing what he termed the  odds and ends and the so-called  by-products. Time was the one  true thing we possessed. Future  success depended upon the use  now of our time and its by-product, the odd moment. The odd  moment was the by-product he  was talking about. The men  who made great success in this  world are the men that have  used wisely these odd moments.  Every minute lost is a neglect-  Thirty-two Gibsohs 7 and District Chamber of Commerce  diners at Welcome Cafe Monday night heard a plea for some  action to improve the Gibsons  harbor area.   ��  With Ron Haig, president, in  the chair, Mrs. Kay Butler  urged chamber members to  keep pressure on federal, provincial and municipal authorities until there was some action.  The remarks from Mrs. Butler covered considerable ground  concerning harbor improvements and shorefront possibilities. She informed the chamber  that the Ernest Cartwright pro  perty on which a hotel arid  marina was to have been built  is now on the real estate market seeking a buyer.  There are eight lots involved at the base of Georgia  Heights at the east end of the  bay. It was his proposal to  spend something like $350,000  there on a hotel and marina.  This occurred during the early  1960s when Gibsons council  after hearing bay area opposition to rezoning the eight lots  for commercial purposes decided to make the change from  residential to commercial. Since  then Mr. Cartwright has been  seeking financial backing. Now.  Industries desired  . Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce should become involved deeper in the  subject of attracting secondary  industries  to the district.  This opinion was expressed  at Gibsons council meeting on  Tuesday night of last week by  Councillor Ken Goddard.- His  argumnt was- that in view of  there being an improvement in  the water supply and an even  greater improvement planned  regionally it was time something was done to attract more  business.  He referred to the fact that  Kay Butler of Butler Realty  had as a chamber of commerce  member, interested the L & K  Lumber Co. in eventually moving its North Shore plant into  the Howe Sound section of the  Sunshine Coast.  Councillor Fred Feeney added  information about the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board  study into commercial aspects  of the area and is expecting  a report to be available within  a month.  Students exchanged  More than 600 British Columbia students will be criss-crossing the province for the week  'commencing Sept. 23, L. J. Wallace, general chairman of the  British Columbia Centennial  committee announces.  ..Three will visit other points  from this school area and three  will visit here from other areas.  The three from this area will  be Trevor Johnson who goes to  Penticton, Clint Booth who goes  to Lytton arid Rita Ono who  goes to Haney. The visitors will  be Carolyn Clark of North Surrey, Ursula Schmiing of Vancouver and Bruce Wilson of Coquitlam. All are secondary  school pupils.  They will study in unaccustomed   classrooms    under   the  British Columbia Youth Travel  program, a provincial Centennial project now in its second  year.  In 1966, 572 students took part  in the exchange program. This  year it is expected 613 students  from 157 schools will take part  moving by air, train and bus.  They will be guests in the  homes of pupils of a similar age,  will spend from three to five  days in classes. Arrangements  have also been made for industrial and scenic tours of the  communities visited.  SQUARE    DANCING    STARTS  Square dancing will start this  Sat., Sept. 23 at 8:30 p.m. at  Hopkins Hall.  he has decided to dispose of  some of the lots unless someone steps in to buy all eight  lots.  Alfred Ritchey, former council chairman, gave as his  opinion that the area outside  the bay extending from the  wharf towards the George Hill  dock should get some attention. He favored a breakwater  to extend out 600 feet from the  old Co-op store location which  would offer considerable protection for a wide area.  Chamber members decided to  continue pressing for action on  the harbor area at the various  levels of government. Reference was made to the Dr. How  report expected shortly following his tour of the Georgia  Strait area in an.effort to find  out what is required as a small  boat harbor policy for the federal government.  Guests for the evening were  RCMP Cpl. R. H. and Mrs.  Duffin.  Mrs. Lee Macey, secretary-  treasurer announced she would  be relinquishing that position  at the October meeting. In the  meantime the chamber will  look for someone to replace her  in that position.

A well deserved honor  Honoring two firemen after 20 years service with Gibsons and  Area Volunteer Fire Department brings back memories to many  oldtimers who can recall the early days of the fire department. .  First came a fire-fighting force with a home-made hose reel  and cart to carry it. The firemen during the Second War joined  the Air Raid Precaution group and were able to get more equipment.  It was shortly after this that both honored firemen, Norman  (MacKay and Ed Kullander, who were presented with binoculars  bearing an engraved nameplate, at the Municipal Hall last Tuesday, joined the force.  For many years the firemen labored on, adding to equipment  piece by piece. They also expanded in an unofficial way their services to the outside area. Wherever it was possible for the fire  trucks to go they went, regardless of weather.  Now the outside area is organized into a fire prevention district which will be of greater value to the firemen, relieving them  of being dependent on a few people who were willing to obtain a  membership and thus help financially.  Gibsons and area should be grateful to these firemen and honoring two of them after 20 years service is just a small token of  what the area owes all of these men. - ���     ���    '  Solution for Bowenites  If Bowen Islanders want a solution to the problem to get under  the low taxation umbrella of the Sunshine Coast Regional District'  they have a means to this end.  AH that would be required of them would be to form a municipality of the whole island. By this means they would be their own  regional district and look after their affairs to suit themselves.  This way they would not have to worry about what the regional board is liable to or not to do. They can hold their own meetings,  have their own battles and settle them in their own way in their  own backyard. So here's to Bowen Islanders and their future as a  municipality!  Joys of childhood  While young mothers may not be joyful over the ramblings  of younger fry when supposed to be headed homeward from school  there is some consolation to be derived.  Let's go back to our own childhood. We more than likely did  the same thing and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Time was  -when a certain mother during school lunch hour came beetling up  to a certain Egg Pond in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and rounded up her  innocent sons to get them home so they could be fed.  Time means nothing to the young mind but as one grows older  the effects of time bear down and things must be done according to  the clock. When it says it is time for lunch there is no escaping that  fact. Not so with the young mind. The event, the glorious spasm  of freedom is refreshing.  Carefree moments are all too brief, containing joys of companionship which have no bearing on time. They are to be enjoyed  until a somewhat frantic mother breaks in on the scene to bring the  young mind back to the horrible thought that this is the lunch hour  ��� and boy ��� we'd better get going!  Ten years ago .Hackett Park  1 in Sechelt became a civic  reality. Actually, the park had  been set aside back in 1952 to  wait the day when Sechelt became an incorporated village.  The date for incorporation was  Feb. 15, 1956. Correspondence  then started with the board of  trade and later the municipal  office and Union Steamships  company.  In September, 1957, Sechelt.  council's chairman Mrs. Christine Johnston issued the following statement:  In March 1953 the Sechelt  Board of Trade was advised by  the Union Steamships Company  that a five-acre block of the  USS Company Ltd, would be  deeded to the Sechelt Board of  Trade in trust for the community until such time that Sechelt became an incorporated  . village, the property then vbe  deeded by the trustee to the  village.  Certain   conditions   were   imposed by the USS company such  as  the  construction  of a  road  and certain clearing to be done  on the property. E. E. Coe was  appointed by the board, of trade  as chairman of the parks committee   and   organized   several  successful   drives   and clearing  bees, resulting in all conditions  laid down by the company being met in full and even exceeded, with a large square being  cleared for a ball field in addition to making adjacent roads.  The late E. Parr-Pearson was  a tireless worker for the park.  Osiborne    Logging    contributed  greatly with     machinery     for  clearing and many members of ���  the   board   of   trade   supported  the work with donations, money  and labor.  In May 1956, the village of  Sechelt having become an incorporated body, the Sechelt  Board of Trade requested the  company to transfer the title to  Hackett Park directly to the  village. Correspondence was  entered   into between   the   Vil  lage council and the  company  with the result    that    Hackett  Park   has   now  been   properly  .surveyed and finalizing   of the  transfer of title from the company to the Village of Sechelt  is now in progress..  Great plans for the develop-  7 ment   of   the   park   are , being  pushed by the local Centennial  Committee. A baseball diamond  complete   with   bleachers,   special playground for children and  general development of Hackett  Park  as  a beauty  spo.  within  the  Village   of  Sechelt,   is   the  ambitious program of the Centennial    committee    uoder the  chairmanship   of   village - commissioner, Capt. Sam Dawe. 7  I urge all citizens of Sechelt  and  surrounding   area   to   give  their full support to this worthy  project which in years to come  can give both to young and old  lasting pleasure and enjoyment.  Christine Johnston, Chairman,  Sechelt Village Commissior.  Hackett    Park    was    named  after the late Bert Hackett who  was   the   popular   manager   at  Sechelt for the company. In the  winter and early spring of 1953  and 1954 the parksite was bulldozed and cleared by volunteer  labor under supervision of Ted  Osborne, Sr., with Jackson Logging providing some equipment.  In    1958    Sechelt    provincial  centennial   project   burned   the  accumulated     debris,     further  clearing was  done and bleachers erected. The area was then  seeded. In 1960 a backstop and  flagpole were  erected and the  park was  first used that year  for   the  May   Day   celebration  arid ball games.  Since then a stage was added,  steps built and a public ad-,  dress system purchased along  with tents for refreshment  booths. Power poles were positioned and B.C. Hydro saw to  it that power was available.  Considerable volunteer labor  was involved during these  years. In the early years considerable work was done by  Tom Parish, Leo Carlson, Ron  'Larsen, Sr., and the late Ron  Larsen, Jr., Curly Tyson, Bob  Tyson, Rudy Crucil and, Leo  Johnson. Ted Osborne, Sr.,  provided a donkey, engine with  rigging and Ted Chalmers operated the same. Jackson Logging provided a grader.  In later years a building was  erected containing facilities for  the serving of food also change  rooms for those taking part in  sports events, baseball, soccer  and others. Reserve military  units have also used the park  as a training ground during  summer days.  Including the cost of the  building and other expenses incurred for maintenance and excluding volunteer labor something more than ��15,000 has  been spent on Hackett park  sincei it became village property  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOB  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers.

COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Kullander Bros, garage in  Gibsons has changed hands and  the new proprietor is Lew Reid.  One of the newest stores to  open up in Gibsons is Usher's  Yard Goods store and including  women and children's shoes.  Johnny MacDonald went of a  spin in his merry Oldsmobile  from Gibsons and wound up at  road's end, Irvine's Landing. It  was the first time this car had  traversed that road.  Roberts Creek PTA discussed  the need for reference books for  grades seven and eight at East  Roberts Creek school.  Sechelt Improvement association has been informed that  work on the $37,000 wharf for  Sechelt will be started at the  end of the tourist season.  Mrs. A. A. French of Sechelt  has been awarded a life membership in the Canadian Legion  women's auxiliary.  10 YEARS AGO  C. P. Ballentine, member of  Gibsons council and one of the  original members of the board  of trade was honored by being  named Good Citizen.  Clearing up of the purchase  of the garbage disposal site by  Gibsons council was ordered by  payment of $513 to complete  the deal.  Ken Watson of Gibsons Meat  Market doubled the size of his  store when Sam Fladager vacated the other half of the  premises.  Long distance phone calls are  now being placed through the  Gibsons telephone exchange instead of through the Vancouver  central office.  Tve noticed that they nwer  interrupt a COMMERCIAL  for a n*ws buUetinf J  Numerous husbands have  written in wanting td^ know if  they can prevent their wives  running up bills in the husband's name, by advertising in  a local newspaper.  The answer is no. It would  be necessary to prove that the  store received such a notice.  In a city the size of Vancouver,  it would be impractical to give  every store a notice cutting off  a wife's credit. This may be  accomplished by advertising in  a circular subscribed to by  most retailers and published by  a credit investigating company.  A lawyer should be consulted  for accomplishing this.  It is a husband's responsibility to support his wife for the  necessities of life. This means  a reasonable quantity of food,  clothing, shelter, etc., according  to his standard of living. She  may pledge his credit for necessities which fall within the domestic department usually confided to the care and management of the wife.  A tradesman could not generally sue a husband for luxuries or extravagant items bought  by the wife. The tradesman  would be left with the unsatisfactory remedy of suing the  wife only. The husband escapes  liability also if he can prove  that his wife was already well  supplied with necessities or with  an allowance to purchase them  or that he expressly forbade  her to pledge his credit. These  principals of law apply also to  POINT  OF LAW  of ~/r f^raclicing. <JUawif*r  the relationship of a man and  woman living together though  unmarried.  Each case is, however,, decided on its merits and a lawyer  should be consulted for specific  problems.

Metis is a French word derived  from the Latin miscere ������ to  mix. The name was given to the  offspring of the white fur traders and the native women of  Canada ��� it was natural for  these men, living among the Indians and far from their own  traditional society, to unite with  the Indian women.  The Metis developed as a separate culture. They were proud  of their mixed blood, and being  remote from white settlements  for more than a century, they  evolved an independent way of  life that was neither Indian nor  European. Physically they combined the best characteristics of  these two races: according to  Southeslk,. they were " * -taljl,  straight and well proportioned,  lightly formed but strong and  extremely active and enduring.'  Another observer wrote: They  are a merry, light-hearted obliging race, recklessly generous,  hospitable and extravagant.  The Metis were as free as the  wilderness they were born in.  They loved the excitement of  the hunt. Many of them depended on the buffalo for their livelihood, while others would leave  their small farms to join in trie  chase. On occasion they would  use the original Indian method  of hunting down a herd and  stampeding it of f a cliff or creek  bank. They would dry the meat  and grind it with crushed berries to make pemmican for the  winter. The buffalo (or bison)  also provided skins for warmth  and leather, and the dung was  used as fuel. Full-grown male  buffaloes were up to six feet  high and weighed a ton or more.  Concentrating in the Red Ri-  OPEN  ver area, the Metis gradually  had to abandon their farms to  follow the dwindling buffalo  herds farther and farther west.  These hunting expeditions were  well organized. The Metis used  buffalo carts, travelled in bands  under chosen leaders, and hunted according to a code of rules  and restrictions. Often they  were accompanied by priests  who celebrated daily mass,  taught the children and visited  the sick. In winter, many of the  Metis camped -, out rather 4h*n  return to. Red River.  As the buffalo grew scarcer,  these camps became permanent  villages and eventually the villagers had to fall back on farm-,  ing and fishing to make a living.

Two years ago  the move was started to have  a special bill sponsored in the  provincial legislature but no  action was obvious arid the matter passed through two sessions  without any interest being taken at the legislative end.  Council has now asked Hon.  Mrs. Isabel Dawson to introduce  a private bill at the next legis-  . lative sitting to change the  name Of the village to read  The Corporation of the Village  of Gibsons.

R. Buckley, Plant Research Institute, Ottawa  Now when vthe lawns are probably looking better than at any  time since June, it would seem  foolish to talk about weed killing and fertilizing; yet these  late summer or early fall days  are the best time for both of  these operations.  Remember last June when the  grass in your lawn seemed to  have been replaced by dandelions! Most of these plants  came from seeds that were  floating in the air soon after the  weeds in your lawn had been  sprayed. Spring-feilled weeds  die and leave small patches  in the lawn, which make excellent seed beds for the floating,  parachuting seeds of the dandelion. "   .  These seeds grow into fair-  sized plants by fall and are  ready to flower and repeat the-  cycle again next spring. If you  spray in September and kill  the weeds, there will be fewer  seeds to grow in the exposed  soil. By next June, when the  seeds are once more in the a.r  from neighboring areas, the  grasses in your lawn will have  had a chance to fill the bare  spots.  Herbicides may be used for  the selective control of weeds  in lawns. When using herbicides  follow the instructions given for  each product and be especially  alert with weed killers that may  volatilize, such as certain esters  of 2,4-D and Silver. These  should not be used near ornamental shrubbery nor on windy  days. This applies not only to  spraying with these herbicides  but also to weed-bar applications, wihich can be particularly  dangerous when the wind blows  the treated grass clippings on  to plants.  There are no hard and fast  rules for feeding turf, for some  soils are richer than others and  contain different amounts of  nutrient. To play it safe, use  a complete fertilizer (one containing nitrogen, phosphorus  and potassium) twice a year,  in 'the early spring and again  in late summer or early fall.  In some areas booster fertilization with nitrogen may add  color seasonally.  When you fertilize in the fall  you do so when the bluegrasses,  fescues and bentgrasses are'at  their best. They are then developing underground rhizomes  and thickening above, but not  producing the leaf growth that  demands extra mowing.  Two to three pounds of actual  nitrogen (that is, 10 to 15 pounds  of a 20% nitrogen fertilizer) is  advised for every thousand  square feet per year, the nitrogen being applied one or two  pounds at a time. For the  money, nothing improves the  appearance of the lawn more  than fertilizer used at the right  time. Fertilized lawns hold up  better, have a deeper green  color and resist weed invasion  much more effectively than unfertilized ones.  The usual fertilizer ratio recommended for lawns is 2:1:1.  This means that the first number should equal the sum of  the other two. For example,  10:6:4 or 12:6:6 are good lawn  fertilizers. According to the  2:1:1 rate this means using 12  pounds of 12:6:6 or 15 pounds  of 10:6:4 for every 1000 square  feet of lawn. Mark your lawn  off into strips and measure  your fertilizer according to the  square feet of surface in each  strip. This ensures an even  distribution and will avoid dark  and light areas, which often  follow the feeding of lawns.  If a mechanical distributor is  used, the job is much easier,  but be careful to set the machine  correctly and test it on  FUELS  Stove and fireplace wood.

All chemical fertilizers should  be applied when the grass is  dry and then thoroughly soaked  with water immediately after  the application. Use a coarse  forceful spray from a hose  nozzle. The object is merely to  wash the fertilizer from the  leaves  to prevent burning.  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  It was decided at the Roberts  Creek Hospital Auxiliary meeting on Monday, to send two delegates to the provincial convention at Penticton, Oct. 2-5.  Although meetings were deferred for the summer, auxiliary members have not been  idle. Besides taking their turn  at the Thrift Shop and in the  hospital, they catered, very successfully, to two weddings, and  also held a Centennial tea and  bake sale.  Because of the Thanksgiving  holiday, the October meeting  will take place on Oct. 16 instead of Oct. 9.

Ontario lad  wins national  essay contest  Winner of the Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association Cen-  tenial Essay Contest announced  at the annual meeting of the  association was Urmas: Vilman-  sen of Chesterville, Ontario.  Born in Canada, his parents  came here from Estonia.  As winner of the Ontario division contest he competed with  entries from the other provinces  including B.C., and the Rt. Hon.  Vincent Massey, in his comment  on the finalists, said they possessed a number of characteristics in common.  "The writers all refer to their  pride in their country and also  their obligation to Canada as  citizens, expressed in different  terms, of course, On the whole  there is a healthy absence of  complacency. Some of.the essays are a little too concerned  with detail, but- generally speaking, they reflect thoughtfulness.  All the essays except one express pride in Canada as a nation. The exception relates to  an essay which discounts nationalism as a sinister force, and  expresses the hope that Canada  will perform her duties in the  international world. How that  can be done without approaching world problems as a nation,  he doesn't say.  "In conclusion, I would like  to say that those who organized  the essay competition should be  pleased with the result. It undoubtedly stimulated a great  deal of thinking on the part of  those who participated, which  no doubt has achieved the main  purpose of the whole effort. I  am very happy to have been  asked to judge the competition."  Arthur Stanley of Kaslo, B.C.,  a director of Canadian Weekly  Newspapers Association i n  charge of the Centennial Essay  competition has announced the  names of the B.C. winners. They  are:  1. Stephanie Fisher, Division  eight, West Vancouver Secondary School.  2. Susan Marnoch, Grade 10  Kamloops Secondary school.  3. Dick Fowler, grade 12,  Stanley Humphries Secondary  school Castlegar.

Mrs. Dawson gave a running  account of her activities especially in regard to the findings  and preparation  of a  re-  to the minister of health and  welfare on the condition of  senior citizens and elderly pensioners throughout the province.  Within the past few months,  Mrs. Dawson has travelled  more than 10,000 miles and investigated the condition and  needs of more than 195 senior  groups. She laid particular emphasis on the need to co-ordinate the problems of elder  citizens throughout the province. The need of adequate  housing and extended medical  care were two phases which  will be dealt with in her report.

As there is still much travelling to be done and until the  findings are all in, she was not  able to give her recommendations to the meeting.  Mrs. Dawson pointed out that  her presence at this gathering  was by way of a special occasion���the first anniversary,  Sept. 12 one year ago when  she was elected to represent  the Social Credit in the B.C.  Legislature.  Charles Mandelkau thanked  the speaker then the meeting 7  turned to a question period arid  Mrs. Dawson soon tound her-  self defending the Hon. Phil  Gaglardi, minister of highways.  Canon Greene led off the attack flourishing three letters received from the minister assur-  Tug captain  In spite of the fact he was  born and raised on the coast,  the son of a logging master, and  went to sea at the age of 12,  Cliff Olsen, master mariner  and operator of the tugs Sea-  foam and Totem, based out of  Gibsons, still becomes violently  seasick practically every" time  he puts out of port. -  Capt. Olsen like the valiant  Capt. Hornblower of Saturday  Post and Hollywood fame, has  learned to live with, if not conquer his squeamish stomach and  during the past V/2. years has  directed his tugs in assisting  tows up and down -the coasts.  Previously he operated out of  False Creek. During the war  years, he did a stint with the  fishing packers of the Fraser  Valley.  Now at the age of 50, married  ��� his wife Nonnie provided him  with a ready made family from  a previous marriage, three children, two boys 9 and 11 and a  girl 4. Cliff admits he still has  a long way to go to measure up  to his father who retired only  last year as a troller at the age  of 83.  ing him that a fill-in of a dangerous gravel pit bordering the  road at Halfmoon Bay would be  filled in- Nothing had been done,  the pit was still there.  Canon Greene suggested it  might be poetic justice if the  minister of highways were to  meet up with a major mishap  in this murder trap and suggested a monument be erected  on the site as a constant reminder of his ignoring this  menace and procrastination in  remedying the situation; The  Canon entrusted Mrs. Dawson  with yet another of his cartoons  to add to the collection which  he has already provided Mr.  Gaglardi.  Mrs. Dawson defended Mr.  Gaglardi and pointed out a list  of road improvements already  carried out with many more  highway improvements along  the Sunshine Coast scheduled  for next year.  Questions were raised concerning the new 200-car Langdale ferry how soon would it  be placed in operation. While  Mrs. Dawson had no definite  information on this, she pointed out contracts had been let  jointly by the government and  Ferry Authority for improvements on the Langdale ferry  terminal to include additional  parking space. This brought up  the question of the seasonal  traffic problem on the stretch  between Langdale and Gibsons.  Mr. Lafond of Hopkins suggested a red signal light at the  ferry exit and the highway controlling the flow of traffic to  and from Port Mellon or the  RCMP speed up the incoming  ferry traffic at the intersection  of the ferry exit and the highway.  Other strong recommendations included a one-way ferry  traffic along the narrow Gibsons-Hopkins stretch by diverting the flow up the North Road.  Another constant danger to  pedestrians and particularly  school children was the stretch  between Granthams and Gibsons where a deep ditch on one  side, water filled in winter and  on the other side the precarious  EARLY BANKER  While it is possible that a  merchant or a public scribe  founded the institution of banking, it is generally believed an  English jeweler pioneered this  vocation. Sir Francis Child, a  17th century goldsmith who lent  large sums of money to the  government, is credited with being the first to convert this  trade to a banking enterprise.  He is often called the father  of the profession of banking.

JOHNSTON,  Municipal Clerk  ___��� 8       Coast News, Sept. 21, 1967.  Forestry develops dollars  Canadian National Forest Products Week this year runs from  Sept. 17 to 23. It is a period set  aside by the forest industry to  remind employees and the general public of the importance of  the industry to the economy.  The theme in British Columbia  will once again be: Half your  dollars come from the forest  industry. National chairman this  year is Harry Archibald, a Toronto lumberman. Paul Cantwell,  Sales Manager, Canadian Forest Products Ltd., Eburne Sawmills Division, is the B.C. provincial chairman.  In excess of $40,000,000 has  been spent by the British Columbia forest industry in a continuing pollution control and  abatement program.  Prior to 1960 the pulp and paper section of the industry had  expended about $8,770,000 and  during the following six years  an additional $21,800,00. was  spent.  Wood products plants have  spent in excess of $10,000,000  since 1956 on pollution control  devices and on waste handling  machinery which has had a decided effect on pollution abatement.

In forest products sales values, which total just more than  one billion dollars, lumber provides 44 percent of the total.  The remaining value is provided by pulp and paper mills, plywood plants, shingle and shake  mills and other plants manufacturing such iteans as laminated  beams  and other products.  During 1966, the total timber  scaled in the province was in  excess of 1.5 billion cubic feet,  a record in B.C. About 68 percent of the timber came from  forests on sustained yield operations, Tree Farm Licenses producing about 405 million cubic  feet and Public Sustained Yield  Units another 640 million cubic  feet.  The production on TFL's was  greater in 1966 than in 1965 while  the scale dropped some 47 million cubic feet on Public Sustained Yield Units.  The decrease, in a theoretical  case, was the equivalent of 15  years employment seven days a  week for a logging operator employing a labor force of 30 men,  plus supervisory personnel.  The year's actual production  of more than one billion cubic  feet was accomplished by about  22,000 people in the logging sector of the forest industry.  In. both Tree Farm Licenses  and Public Sustained Yield Units the scale was well within required limits for sustained yield  production. The 38 Tree Farms  in the province have a government approved annual allowable  cut of 484 million cubic feet and  76 Public Sustained Yield Units  have an annual commitment of  654 million cubic feet.  Tree Farm Licenses are on  9.5 million acres of forests and  operated by private industry  which has responsibilities for reforestation, road and bridge  construction, and protection of  timber from fire, insect3nfesta-  tion and disease. .:^t;  The Public Sustained^ Yield  Units cover an area some eight  times larger than TFL's, 75.5  million acres. Here, the B.C.  Forest Service is responsible for  management and public auction  of the cutting rights for timber.

At Toronto she joined Rev.  and Mrs. James Fergusson,  former Anglican minister at Sechelt and now of Mission City  and the party then journeyed  by air to the island in the West  Indies. The party was billeted  in twos in local homes.  Their first job was at the  Montago mission where they  built a dhibhouse then they  moved on to the old harbor  and dug the foundation for a  church hall, placing the Canadian centennial sign on the wet  cement.  The local people were all  friendly and 20 Jamaican students joined the party and {took  part in discussion on how to  make programs for Sunday  Schools. Miss Potts was given  a class of 30 five and six, year  olds and then 55 aged 11 to 12.  They were mostly ragged but  clean and full of fun also eager  to learn.  Group activities included ;  considerable travel in crowded  trams and ranged from organizing games for juveniles to  swimming off the deserted white  sandy beaches. The blue Car-  ribean was a terrific attraction  and at parties and night clubs  they enjoyed the strange foods  of breadfruit,    unhusked    rice,  fresh bananas, coconut milk  and sugar cane.  The final service at St.  Michael's, Kingston was an  American folk mass: They then  flew from the island in daylight taking pictures as they  did so.  Miss Potts expressed . her  gratitude at being able to take  the trip and her excellent colored slides showed that she thoroughly enjoyed herself.  a car  :���������-��� Our new aufo rating  plan offers many money  saving advantages  Consult  J.
