It was explained that, owing to  the long dry season nothing  could be burned but now it can  be attendeU to.7v   ���     .  A regional planning department letter covering Sechelt  council's request for advice on  rezoning of the west side of Porpoise Bay road for industrial  purposes drew considerable argument but resulted in council  deciding to go ahead with that  rezoning.  Chairman William Swain  sought from council an answer  to the difference between commercial and ir_<_ustrial as far as  Sechelt was concerned. Clerk  Ted^lRajmer offered the advice  , than on industrial zoning living  quarters above the plant were  not countenanced. Living quarters were planned in the machine shop.  Councillors were working from  a map of a proposed zoning  plan prepared inn 1961 and an  opinion was expressed that the  provincial planning department  was trying to scuttle this project via letter and red tape. It  was argued there was little  enough business in Sechelt.  The present situation as regards the land which council is  considering for rezoning industrial is that on the east sifdie as  far as the B.C.

Miss Adele de Lange;  vice-president, took the chaijr  and explained that it was with  great regret that she had to  announce the resignation of the  Club President, Mrs. Grace  Harling, who was moving with  her family back to Vancouver.  Mrs. Harling will be greatly  missed as she is a charter  member of the club and worked very hard as the first secretary when the club was formed  in 1964.  Miss de Lange regretted that  she was unaible to step into the  presidency this year due to her  heavy commitments on behalf  of the Sechelt village council.  Mrs. Helen Bathgate of Egmont  was  elected president.  Mrs. Bathgate has been a  regular and reliable member  of the club since its early  stages. She has held the offices  of emblem, chairman, secretary  arid treasurer. She was one of  the club's delegates to its provincial conference at Pinewoods  Lodge, Manning Park, last May  and also attended the Lower  Mainland regional conference  with other cluib members in  March.

One, at 4  p.m. Monday was a truck fire  behind the Shell Service Station.  The flat deck truck was being  worked on by Budd Kiewitz,  Shell Oil Distributor, its owner,  and as he was starting it fire  broke out.

Damage   was   reported  slight.  The other, fire at 6:30 p.m.  Sunday was in a cedar shake  shed behind the Women's Institute cottage, containing a chemical toilet. The blaze looked  spectacular but when the firemen had the fire under control  the shed was burned out and the  side of the institute cottage was  scorched. Damage was regarded as light.  Strange case  ROMP received a call Sunday  at 11:45 a.m. that a man was  lying in the dense forest between Twilight Theatre and I &  S Transport. On investigating  the man was located1. He was a  naturalized Austrian who had  lived in Canada since 1951.  He was paralyzed on one side  but had made his way aboard  the ferry at Horseshoe Bay anid  got off at Langdale. Police  learned from him he had been  lying there soaking wet since  Wednesday afternoon and had  not eaten for seven days. Asked  if he was hungry he saiid no and  asked to be left there for about  another seven days. Police took  him to St. Mary's Hospital  where he is now resting.  couver. Mrs. Marilyn Wigar&i  of Sechelt was elected membership chairman; Mrs^ Lois  Stannard of Sechelt was elected United Nations chairman;  Mrs. Phyllis McLeod was elected treasurer.  A letter of thanks from the  bursary recipient, Merrilee  Olson of Elphinstone High  School was read. She reported  that this summer she had taken  a six weeks' course in I.B.M.  keypunch operation at Western  School of Commerce in Van-  cover and is now employed  in the data processing dept. of  the B.C. Telephone company.  The club will again be selling  UNICEF Christmas cards and  will have a supply on hand in  the near future. Proceeds go  to UNICEF, a branch of the  United Nations, to help needy  children the world over.  Funds have to be raised to  pay the club's portion to the  federation's Centennary Year  foundation, a foundation set up  by the federation of all clubs  in Canada, the interest from  which will be used in various  ways but chiefly in some form  of education. It was decided to  run a raffle for a Christmas  Hamper. Tickets will (be .on sale  shortly.,  Business Women's Week will  be/ observed Oct. 22 to 28 and  a committee is working on the  club's presentation.  It was announced that the  speaker for the next meeting,  Tues., Nov. 7, at Ole's Cove,  will be Mr. Norman Watson,  chairman of the regional district.  Anyone interested in joining  the BPW Club is cordially invited to contact the membership chairman, Mrs. Marilyn  Wigard of Sechelt, or any other  club member.  Development of a land area  south from School Road behind  the Elementary school, involving reparcelling of lots for a  road1 through the area was  agreed to in principle by Gibsons council at its Tuesday  night meeting.  The land lies between O'Shea  road and the rear of the school,  extending so upwards towards  Stewart, road. If the plan is  carrield out a new road, midway  across the lots, paralleling Abbs  road would be put through  which would veer into Abbs  road at its southern end dtie to  steep ground beyond that point.  Two parties are involved in  the lai-d reparcelling and they  are Ray Johnson, logger and  Dr. J. J. L. Crosby. Council decided to bring town planners  Robert Williams and Associates  into the discussion relative to  costs that might be involved. A  three acre park area would be  inclulded in the scheme.  Discussion   on   the   Regional  District board's location  of its  office was started by Councillor  eFred Feeney who outlined what  thoughts had been expressed at  the last Regional board meeting.  He is council's representative  on that board. The Regional  boarld) was of the opinion Roberts Creek area would be a good  location. Council decided to go  on record that the Regional  board office should be established in the heavily populated Gibsons area. When it came to mulling over the school board's intentions of building its own office building, possibly in conjunction with the Regional board  Councillor Feeney expressed the  desire to see more school rooms  built, as they would be more  preferable.  Chairman Wes Hodgson complimented the volunteer firemen  for their prompt turnout at Sunday night's fire behind the Women's Institute cottage on South  Fletcher road. He said the turnout in four-and-one-half minutes  after the alarm during a holiday period deserved congratulations and added, double congratulations for the speed with  which the fire was got under  control and ��� extinguished.      .   ,  recently intimated the BjC. Ferry Authority was reviewing the  ferry system from Horseshoe  Bay through''to the Powell River  side of Jervis Inlet. As the  Barford,report outlined, the discharge of 160 vehicles at any  one time could be beyond the  ability of the present road system to accommodate. This could  lead to construction of the bypass from Langdale to the vicinity of the Peninsula Hotel. It  would also mean a larger ferry  on the Jervis Inlet run, if the  authority discovers there would  _ also be an increase of sufficient size at that end of the  system.  THowever information from the  Ferry Authority and the provincial roads department is as  sparse as usual and speculation continues to be the: only  source in the gathering of information, With the entry of a larger ferry on the Langdale run it  is reasonably safe to assume  that something will be done  about the road system at the  Gibsons end. Traffic according  to the South Coast Region Economic Survey issued in February  of this year shows that summer  peak traffic during July and  August is heaviest in the Gibsons area tapering off when it  gets into the  Sechelt area.

Mr. Bollington made his entrance in the dark by the light  of an old-fashioned candlestick  in a nightdress and mob cap  and was a perfect Ma Murray.  Singing of a harvest hymn  was followed with Canon Alan  Greene  reading the Centennial  proclamation by the lieutenant-  governor and a letter from the  Centennial commission. Following a short prayer the 40 members heard Roy Holgate tell of  the work done on converting the  woodshed into a dressing room  with a level plank walk to the  hall.  The meeting decided to send  a wreath as a mark of respect  for Mr. A. Young After discussing the financial state of the  hall it was decided to send copies of the constitutional1 changes  to all members.  A half-hour community singsong followed1 with slides and  musical accompaniment by Mr.  and) Mrs. Leuchte intermingled  with excellent Expo slides by  Mr Duff. A few rounds of dancing followed to whet the appetites for turkey sandwiches and  apple or raisin pie. Kevin, 3 and  Trevor, 6, grandchildren of Mr.  and Mrs. Comyn, created amusement in their readiness for  the eats.  The fine vegetable display arranged by Mrs Olive Clear was  auctioned by Mr. Holgate and  bids were high. The donated  door prize was won by Mrs.  Duff and a redraw saw it won  by Mr. J. Cooper.  1.

This is the reason 21 adults  are studying Spanish at Pender  Harfbor Secondary school. Mrs.  Doreen Lee wanted to learn a  second language, but nothing  was available at the school-  here. So she began a telephone  carivpaign and rounded up 21  interested people.  The problem of a teacher was  quickly solved with the recruiting of Mrs. M. C. Blue, who  maintains it's always a pleasure to teach adults. Mrs. Blue  has taught Spanish at Senior  Secondary School level and at  Dalhousie University in Nova  Scotia. All 21 contacted attend  ed the first class on October 2.  The school facilities were arranged through the co-operation of F. L. Fuller, director of  adult  education.

A worthwhile report  With quite a few reports covering economics and other phases  of the Sunshine Coast now available it leads one to the thought  that more attention is being paid to the area.  The first of these reports was that of the provincial bureau of  economics and statistics which in 112 pages covered the area described as the South Coastal Region including the Sunshine Coast,  Howe Sound and Pemberton Valley.  As an aside one should thank the person who brought forth the  name Sunshine Coast. It has become a defined area which extends  from Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet and is a definite name for a definite area. This is now established by legal processes.  Before the South Coast Region report existed we had for the  area surrounding Gibsons, the Martin Dayton report on the water  potential. It serves a good purpose in outlining possibilities for a  good water supply. Soon after came the Bullock report which was  an extension of the Dayton report in that it covered the West Howe  Sound Region, specifically to Gower Point but generally to the Sechelt area. It too gave some aspects of the water potential which  are worthy of consideration.  Now we have a planning report, turned out by a young man  named Jerry Barford, a university student recommended by UBC  to help the Sunshine Coast Regional District board this past summer get itself set up with proper maps and other necessary municipal paraphenalia to help the board of directors in their work.  The Barford report, most of which has been published during  the last two weeks in the Coast News, is more along the line of  observations that have arisen as a result of Mr. Barford's work in  lining up necessary detail for the Regional District board. He  should be congratulated for his effort.  His observations on population trends while not new have been  outlined in one section. Many people have made guesses as to the  movement of population in the area but Mr. Barford has confirmed  their thoughts. His analysis of the forestry situation in the area is  that forestry is not an industry on which we should rely too heavily.  Recreation and tourism have been analyzed along with the need  for water and transportation. In his observations he asks the question should the district emphasize secondary manufacturing or rec.  reation? He also asks whether the rural atmosphere should be preserved at the, expense of growth. The Regional District board at  its recent meeting, the one which received Mr. Barford's report,  felt that quality should not give way to quantity. Judicious planning  will be a great help. The Regional District board will need plenty  of such help.  110 youngsters waiting  Ninety Brownies and 20 Guides are looking for leaders. They  are willing to take on the role of being useful to their community  and now they desire to have some leadership to help them become  the type of citizens most adults would like to live among.  These Guides and Brownies are in Giibsons which is the largest populated centre on the Sunshine Coast. Surely there are some  people who have the interests of youth and the community in their  thinking. Such guidance directed to the young people should show  beneficial results and it is such results that most people are clamoring for in the lives of our young. But unless they have guide-  posts to follow in the form of good leaders we must not expect too  much from them.  So if there are people who feel they will be able to help, the  Coast News recommends they telephone 886J2458 or 886-2423. Do  your part to help the youngsters feel they are a part of our civilization.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Les Peterson in his column  wrote: Time was when not so  many years ago, an observer  from a boat on West Howe  Sound could count the lights of  Gibsons and name to himself  whose home each came from.

Fire destroyed a building owned by Len Swanson on Fletcher  read near Winn road.  A $38,000 garage and storage  building is under construction  for B.C. Electric at its Sechelt  substation.  FROM THE REGIONAL DISTRICT BARFORD REPORT  Population  data  for  the  Regional    District    showed    that  persons 65 years of age or over  comprised   15.2%   of   the   total  population    in    1961, compared  to 7.6% for Canada as a whole,  and  10.1%   for  B.C.   This   fact  attests to the attractiveness of  the  area  for retired people ���  the mild climate;   the rural atmosphere    and    quiet pace of  life   (the  latter being  mentioned in 'many  surveys     as    the  primary factor in the choice of  a    retirement    location);     yet  proximity   to   a   major   urban  centre offering a wide range of  goods  and  services;   relatively  low  cost land, when compared  to   current   prices  for   residential land in Vancouver;  and recreational  and leisure-time  advantages,     especially    boating,  fishing   and   beach-area   activities.  Many couples in early or  late middle-age buy a lot in  the district for a summer cottage with the intention of retiring to it in later life.  *: * *  With this in mind it seems  reasonable to suggest that retirement, along with recreation  and tourism, could become a  major factor in the regional  economy.  Retirement can be viewed as  an industry. By the retirement  industry we mean a service industry specifically catering to  the needs of retired people. But  one point should be made quite  clear ��� with retirement age  set at 65, there are still five  to ten years on the average of  continued activity and demand  for the normal range of services before mobility is in any  way curtailed or awareness is  impaired, and, hence, before  increasingly specialized care is  needed.  ^     *     *  With improved medical health  practices, the proportion of  people over 65 in any community is increasing, and the retired are becoming an increasingly important component of  society. Further, with increasing productive capacity and a  growing commitment to electronic technology, retirement  age may be progressively lowered, making the need to provide retirement-oriented activities and facilities, and to recognize these people as a fac  tor in any community or area,  more acute.  We recognize basically , six  facilities that should be pro-  vived within any area. Education programs- are needed,  tailored to the requirements' of  retired people; under this heading would be included the provision of a public library system. Leisure fills a large proportion of a retired person's  activity pattern :��� here we include outdoor recreation (fishing and golfing), and indoor social and cultural facilities.  Shopping and commercial enterprises are also important,  especially with regard to ease  of access.  *  *  *  Health service facilities, including physicians, special clinics (for arthritis and diabetes,  for example), and nursing services are increasingly needed  as age progresses; the hospital  in Sechelt may prove to be a  significant location influence.  And finally, circulation; in an  area such as the Sunshine  Coast, where public transit is  minimal, this could be a problem as mobility decreases with  age. This would probably restrict the impaired to the village communities, where the  services are accessible on foot.  Although this concentration of  retired people has not been induced  by any   positive   policy,  there are various forms of residential    facilities    that it may  well  be  possible  to  attract  in  coming years. At one  end are  real-estate  developments,     promoted by independent developers or by public or semi-public  institutions such as religious organizations   and   fraternal  lodges.   These   may  form   part  of, and are hence integrated into, existing communities or developments,   sharing   the  same  services;     or    they may form  separate retirement villages. At  the middle level are three residential types:   dispersed   dwelling   communities   (isolated   or  small 'groups of low-rise apartment     dwellings);     trailer villages;  and   .retirement    hotels.  At the opposite end are the full  care   homes  and   communities.  *        *        jjs  Within Canada, the Sunshine  Coast has a high potential for  attracting retired people, and it  is therefore ' quite feasible for  the district to capitalize on this  advantage.

If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c^/o this newspaper.  Many queries have been received concerning the rights  that a person has who is charged with a criminal offence.  An accused (as he is called)  has the following rights:  To know what offence he is  charged with.  To employ a lawyer to defend him.  To contact a lawyer though  he is in custody.  To appear in court promptly  (generally within twenty-four  hours if he is in custody) and  apply for bail.  To a presumption of innocence in his favor.  To refuse to answer any question asked by anyone except  routine matters such as his  .name, Etc.  To procure the attendance of  witnesses at his trial compul-  sorily, that is, by siibpoena and  by arrest by the authorities if  necessary.  To be given certain particulars of the evidence the prosecutor   proposes   to   present  at  POINT  OF LAW  ���the trial.  To a prompt hearing if in  custody ��� or alternatively his  release ��� by habeous corpus  proceedings.  To be present at his trial.  To a court open to the public.  To a jury trial, in certain  cases.  To plead not guilty.  To require the crown to  prove his guilt.  To cross-examine the witnesses the crown calls at the trial,  concerning their evidence.  To require his witnesses to  testify under oath.  To testify himself.  To decline to testify himself.  To, if convicted, speak to  sentence, that is, to suggest  any reason.  To the court why the sentence should be lenient.  To appeal or apply to appeal  the conviction.  To appeal the sentence.  To a fair, just hearing by an  impartial court.  It is only by insisting on the  strict exercise of these rights  that an accused person is fully  protected under our law. Of  course, if an accused throws  away some of his rights by, for  example, failing to request bail,  pleading guilty, failing to engage a lawyer, or failing to  apply for an early trial date,  Etc., he cannot complain later.  example of what can be achieved. The retirement industry  does offer an opportunity to  diversify the local economy and  provide alternative sources of  regional employment and income. At the same time, we  must acknowledge a possible 7  danger from having a large  proportion of retired people in  an area. This group is, on the  average, most likely to be conservative and cool towards continued development and increased spending on services from  which they do not directly bene-:  fit (for example, schools). This  factor may, therefore, be detrimental  to  long-run  growth.  CHILDREN HELPED  More than 1,000 British Columbia children are benefitting  froni the new rheumatic fever  prevention program.

It is  the  route  through  the  Selkirk   Mountains   of   British  Columbia that was adopted by  the   C.P.R.   for  its  main  line.  Snowslides and the difficulty of  maintaining the road in the  winter led to the building of  the   five-mile   Connaught   Tun  nel. The pass lies between the  Hermit and Sir Donald ranges  of the Selkirks, north of Glacier  station in Glacier Park. It was  named after Major A. B. Rogers who explored it in 1881. In  1956 it was decided to adopt  the Rogers Pass route for the  Trans-Canada Highway.  Electric iron ease improved  L.A. ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION BRANCH 109  RUMMAGE   SALE  Saturday?

VOLUNTEER FIRE SERVICES  Comparing old - fashioned  housewares with modern appliances makes one realize that  housekeeping was not all beer  and skittles in the good old  days. Imagine, for example,  what a chore it must have been  'to keep the family in starched  shirts and flounced 'petticoats  with the aid of an old fashioned  sad iron.  Since electric irons were developed, there have been many  improvements in the original  models ��� lighter weight, more  comfortable handles, temperature controls, faster heating, a  groove to iron around buttons  and optional positioning of the  cord to suit right and left-  hand workers. But possibly the  most useful improvement was  the development of a combination steam and dry iron with  a switch to change from steam  to dry ironing as required.  Two   new  and   practical   de  velopments are a spraying device to dampen the fabric by  spraying ahead of the iron and  teflon-coated sole plates. The  first device eliminates the  necessity of sprinkling on all  but heavier materials which  might be better sprinkled by  hand.  A scratch on a teflon-coated  sole plate isn't so likely to snag  sheer materials as it is when a  steel sole plate is scratchpfl.  An extra coating of the teflon  on the tip of the iron which  receives the most wear, is a  practical feature. If eventually  the teflon coating wears off,  the iron is still usable.  Here are some points which  you might like to check when  purchasing a new iron: Test  the handle. Is it comfortable  to hold? Is the temperature  control easy to see and reach?  Has the iron a window to  check the level of water in the  tank?   Is   the   opening  to   the  tank conveniently    placed    for  filling?  Is the position of the cord  convenient?  Tips on Care and Use: To  prevent a build-up of mineral  coating inside the iron, a de-  mineralizer to condition tap  water is recommended even in  soft water areas. It is especially important in hard water  areas.  Always disconnect the iron  before emptying or filling the  tank. Empty tank after iron is  used and store iron on its heel.  Wax sole plate by running iron,  set at a low temperature, over  wax paper. Then buff plate with  a soft cloth.  Coast News, Oct. 12, 1967.

This is the same feature introduced in last year's  Centennial Series. If interest  coupons are held to maturity,  13 years, money is doubled.  Average  yield is  5.48  percent.  There are new features. Interest for the first six years is  5.25 percent, highest initial interest yet.     .  For the first time corporations, partnerships, syndicates,  trusts, churches, charity  groups, clubs and associations  can purchase. Previously sales  were limited to individuals and  estates. Limit for a buyer now  is $50,000 instead of $10,000.  There are the old features  that have made the bonds a  big part of a Canadian citizen's  thrift scheme for 21 years and  while playing a major part in  government financing.  They can be cashed anytime  for face value plus interest;  bought from banks, investment  dealers and through the popular payroll savings plans in so  many    plants,    firms and factories.  More than $19 billion have  been bought in 21 Series. Last  year was a record, 2.4 billion.  Payroll sales set a mark of  $269 million (14.3 percent over  1965), were bought by 694,260  employees in 5,100 firms.  WHY GIVE THE BURGLAR  AN ENGRAVED INVITATION?  "You might as well give a burglar an engraved invitation to help himself at your house, if you leave valuables  lying about," says Frank Daugherty, manager of the Gibsons Branch of the Bank of Montreal.  Mr. Daugherty adds that behind the steel doors of a  B of M vault is the safest place for valuables such as  bonds, leases, stock certificates, insurance policies, deeds,  birth certificates passports and other important family  documents.  "It costs less than three cents a day to rent a B of M  safety deposit box" he says, and explains that hundreds  of thousands of Canadians use B of M safety deposit  facilities, an indication of the popularity of this service.  "It pays for itself again and again in peace of mind  alone."  "Give the burglar a brush-off at your house. Keep  your valuables in your personal strong box ��� it's exclusively yours ��� in a B of M vault."  Drop in soon and see Mr. Daugherty about renting  a safety deposit box ... it will set your mind at rest.  Avt.  Some heating fuels give you "extras" you'd be better off without. Like fumes and soot. With electric heat, no fuel is burned  so no dirt is created to mar your furnishings. You get even,  comfortable heat; operating costs are low, and your heating  system requires little or no maintenance. Come to think of it,  electric heat does give you one extra... the extra resale  value it adds to your home. As the trend to all-electric living  continues, more and more homebuyers will be demanding  modern, efficient electric heat. That could mean a lot when  the time comes to sell.  14,000 homeowners have made Electric Heat B.C/s hottest seller!  B.C. HYDRO  +  C & S SALES & SERVICE     PARKER'S HARDWARE LTD.

Editor: I am appealing to  you, through your newspaper  readers,  for some information.  I'm sure the residents of the  Peninsula are aware of the Girl  Guide Camp situated at Wilson  Creek.

Also Tipi-wai-kin, Si'al'um,  Ko-wa-ka  and Naw-i-_ak.  The unnamed site, used by  the Burnaby Girl Guides, needs,  a name. We would like to have  Sparkling Water or Shining-Water translated into the Sechelt  language.

Editor: What right gives one  man the power to control the  morals of thousands of people?  Does Mr. Campbell (Vancouver's mayor) think he is the only  only moral person in Vancouver ^ Or does he think they cannot think for themselves.  I doubt very highly that Mr.  Campbell ever thought to take  a look at some of the books  on the Vancouver scene. If  Georgia Straight is obscene  v/hat is Fanny Hill and others  like it?  The Georgia Straight, whether  Mr. Campbell likes it or not,  prints the real truth aibout Vancouver. It does not stop when  someone says it might give  Vancouver a bad name.  I cannot as a Canadian citizen soe how one man can have  control of the morals of thous-  sands of people. ��� Mr. James  Skinner.

One of the major forces promoting the continued development of the district is the ferry  route connecting the Sunshine  Coast, and any change in the  time-distance relationship of the  district and metropolitan Vancouver will undoubtedly have  a significant effect.  The traffic department of the  B.C. Ferry Authority is at present initiating a review of the  Horseshoe Bay - Langdale and  Earls Cove - Saltery Bay routes.  Operations will be assessed in  the light of population changes  over the past few years, and  predictions of population and  traffic growth for the future.  The present ships, with average capacities of 80 and 83 vehicles each per trip, are at  present running at capacity  most of the time, particularly  during the summer months; and  a program of mid-week promotion is being conducted to build  up the weak spots.

Changes will have to be made  at* the Langdale terminal to accommodate the vessel; further,  the discharge of over 160 vehicles at any one time may be  beyond the ability of the present road system to accommodate. The capacity of the Powell  River Queen on the Earls  Cove - Saltery Bay run is inadequate to cope with present  volumes, and steps will be  taken to improve the situation.  Improvement in the Powell  River - Comox route, at present  operated by the Toll Authority,  are also being considered, and  these may have some effects  on travel habits, particularly  those  of tourists,  in the  area.  Highway 101 provides the  spine to the district, and in  conjunction with the coast, a  major locational force for development. Relocation of the  highway to bypass the Village  of Gibsons is at present being  actively considered by the provincial department of highways.  This will have an effect on future development of the north  of Gibsons, and also on the  commercial area centred  around the  government  wharf.  Two other projects may be  in the process of consideration,  but appear to have a low  priority. Highway 101 north of  Sechelt is sub-standard as a  two lane provincial highway,  and its inconvenience and frustration potential is recognized.  Improvements will be undertaken, however, only when the  pressure arises.  A. cost-benefit analysis of a  projected road from Woodfibre  to Port Mellon was undertaken  several years ago. This demonstrated the construction problems and high cost involved,  and such a route could only be  considered when traffic volume  is beyond the capacity of the  ferry system.  Traffic  volumes  on Highway  101 show  a     general     upward  trend over the past seven years  ��� more than twice the volume  in 1966 than there was in 1960.  The average daily figures would  also seem  to indicate that the  greater  part  of the volume  is  generated by the area between  Gibsons     and     Sechelt.     This  points     to     the fact that the  south-east section of the district'  is the major activity area. To  go beyond this somewhat broad  statement and indicate the pro-  , portion   of through  as  against  local   traffic   would,   however,  need precise information on the  directional flow of traffic past  these and other points, as well  as    the    average daily traffic  volume   handles   by  the   ferry  system. The    configuration    of  the road system would allow a  relatively    accurate    and inexpensive    determination    of the  flow patterns of vehicular traffic, and such information would  toe  immensely   useful   from   a  olanning viewpoint.  Big fish derbies expensive  For   the   past   29  years   the were  estimated  at  $13.78  each  Vancouver Sun has sponsored  a free Salmon Derby which has  become one of the largest in  B.C. This year, the derby was  held oh Sunday, August 20, and  it was estimated that 12,000  fishermen operating out of 4,-  600 boats took part in this one- ���  day event.  The Sun Derby was selected  for a special study by the department of fisheries and on  Derby Day, field assistants of  the department interviewed at  random a total of 1,400 fishermen obtaining their names and  addresses and some (basic information on the extent of their  fishing activities.  The list of names was used  for mailing purposes and a special questionnaire requesting  information on costs and fishing success on Derby Day was  sent to 700 of those interviewed.  A total of 317 questionnaires,  or 42% of those sent out, were  completed and returned.  On the basis of these returns  it was calculated that the total  amount of money spent on the  derby by the 12,000 fishermen  participating was $143,000. Boat  owner   and   operator   expenses  while the cost to other fishermen averaged $10.77. Boat operating costs, including rentals,  gas, launching, etc., totalled  $38,000. Fishing tackle purchais-  ed or rented was $46,000 with  $11,000 spent on bait, $27,000 on  food, $20,000 on other refreshment and $1,000 on accommodation.  A total of 408,000 man-miles  was travelled by all fishermen,  or an average of 34 miles per  person. The total number of  salmon caught ��� chinooks, co-  hoes, pinks and grilse ��� was  estimated at 7,200 or an average of .6 fish per person.

Some homes were  wooden shacks made of small  poplar logs, as shown in the  lower right of the drawing. The  spaces between the logs were  filled with clay or a mixture  of mud and straw, both inside  and out.  '  Sometimes the original homes  were sod cabins and even caves  dug into hillsides, " with clay  floors and white-washed walls.  Some British families built  dwellings of steeply slanted  poles, thatched with coarse long  grass  from  the  sloughs.   Most  straw-filled mattresses and  eventually, as farming developed, the luxury of feather ticks.  The coming of the railway  and promotion of Clifford Sif-  ton, minister of the interior,  greatly increased the flow of  settlers. Small towns mushroomed, providing a store, a  grain elevator, perhaps a cabinet maker, carpenter, blacksmith and weaver. When sawn  lumber . became available, it  made possible the type of barn  at the upper left, a combination of logs and frame construction.  A salute to Suomi!

GREENE)  (Copyright)  I was billetted with Dr. Aino  Teitehnen who lived in a three  room apartment with her mother and a maid. When her mother  died she was given one week  to fill the vacancy so she appealed to #ie British Council.  Luckily I answered the phone  and went to see her that evening after work and agreed to  teach English at mealtime in  exchange for board and lodging.  Hot water was turned on  once a year so one kept a pot  of boiling water on hand daily  for bathing and laundry. I gave  her my extra rations and she  was amazed. Previously for the  first month I had a rented  room at 3,000 marks a week, a  cold tap and basin, borrowed  sheets and towels and an  epectric saucepan. Breakfast  consisted of a boiled 21c egg  and ovaltine made from the egg  water also black rye bread. No  warts internal or external resulted as prophesied.' To pay  the <rent I had to give three  English lessons per week to  the daughter of the house and  only paid 2,000 marks per week.  I also had the privilege of one  bath a week, an unheard of  luxury. I washed hair first,  then body then the laundry.  However hot and ready food,  prepared by the maid won the  day. I had one room, Dr. Aino  the other, the third was her  consultting room. The maid  gratefully slept in a kitchen alcove. She was a Karelian refugee, an ex-university student in  Viipuri   and   did   extra   mural  PLAY BINGO  THURSDAY  October 12  GIBSONS LEGION HALL -8 p.m.  19 GAMES $10 or OYER  20th GAME  $500-50 CALLS        $100-54 CALLS  $250-52 CALLS        $50-55 CALLS or OVER  Minors under 16 not allowed  GIBSONS WELFARE FUND  Door Prize $  Draw  Winner must be in Attendance  courses at  night  school.

It is hoped he will stay with us at Red-  roofs this November to recoup  from    his    celebration and go  fishing,  his favorite  relaxation.  I was devoted to    his    first  wife   Marietta  when   I   stayed  from   January  to May in 1938  and again in 1939, to teach him  English.   She   died   during   the  war.

As for war scenes, go to  Suomi (Finland) for the real  war commission films if you  want to see real nightmares.  To the large Finnish population "on the Sunshine Coast, if  I have brought back bitter  memories, I apologize. My facts  are .rue as they were checked  with the late Finnish ambassador in London, before I lectured for the General Manner-  heim appeal and the Finnish  Red Cross under the leadership  of the murdered Count Berna-  dot in the 1940s.  I salute you as a people I  have been privileged to live  with for one glorious fishing  summer and fine hard working  winters. So Ketos (Thank You).  7 DEAR DORIS ��� My husband  left us several years' ago and  he has neither visited nor supported me and the four children  since then. Usually sends a  card at Christmas. Once in a  while returns to the district  and I am told enquires about  his children.  (1) Should we send him a  letter telling him of my daughter's coming marriage, or a  wedding r.nvitation?  (2) Should both his name  and  mine  appear  on the wed-  Coast News, Oct. 12, 1987.       7  ding invitation?  Wondering  DEAR WONDERING ��� (1) A  letter or an announcement is  probably best. Usually such a  separation is evidence of bitterness: a bitterness which, if  he were present, could cast a  pall over an. occasion which  should be the last word in happiness.  (2) Just your name ��� unless he were to contribute to  the cost. I gather this would be  the farthest thing from his  mind, even if he were to be  consulted about it.
