Davidson of  Abbs road, Gibsons, stepped out  of her car to view the scenery  on the Halfmoon Bay side of  the Trout Lake area Sunday afternoon she was surprised.  It was not a bear, not-nearly  that size. It was a kitten, black  chiefly,   with   white   paws   and  under chin, could be part Persian and was quite friendly. It  also appeared well fed.  Taking it home was no trouble. It settled down in thecar  and in the Davidson home knew  what a box was for and nestled  down. If it belongs to anyone  please phone Mrs. Davidson at  886-2192.

In  the   meantime   the   fire   department was called and neighbors  of  the area  with  shovels  ���:  and sacks appeared.  y.   Luckily the fire was contain-  7 ed  to  a  smouldering  root  and  ��� "log. If it had burst into flame  y the result could have been serious. - ���  There is a very heavy stand  of timber in that area and it  could have created considerable  damage if it had got out of control. Firemen from both sta-  ; tions were oh the scene in rapid  time.  A second fire alarm was  sounded an hour later from the  same location but in a spot  some 60 feet away from the first  fire. It too had a dangerous aspect but was nipped quickly by  the fire department aided by  nearby residents.  This is the third fire to have  taken place within a small area  of that specific section of land.  The first was in a pile of old  logs near the roadside at the  Miahlman house. It was noted at  about 2:15 a._n. August 7 by  Mrs. Mahlman's mother.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  district board has accepted the  committee of the whole motion  regarding bulk water supply  throughout the regional district.  The committee of the whole  decided that the engineering  consultants, Dayton and Knight,  be engaged to carry out a feasibility study on the supply of  bulk water throughout the regional district. The motion  reads that the study would be  of a general nature throughout  the regional district but would  include, specific recommendations for the West Howe Sound,  Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay areas  Due to the drought in this  area this summer water operations of the regional board are  being watched, with great interest: It was brought to the attention, of the regional board that  Garden Bay is facing a water  scarcity situation due to low  levels at the "water intake. This  situation'is the" first time it has  happened during the last 27  years,    according : to    remarks  passed by board members. It  was also revealed that the regional board has been receiving overtures regarding water  from many other points.  Obsolescence. of many of the  smaller systems now in use was  mentioned. The move by Sechelt  council to obtain an evaluation  of the Sechelt Waterworks Ltd.  was noted and the board will  ask for a copy of the report.  As a result of all the pressure  for water now evident along  the Sunshine. Coast the district  board has decided to go through  the procedure of extending its  functions to include water.  T Chairman Norman Watson  commented that the board-  meant to do something definite  about water. There is an urgency, he added.  Directors were informed that  assistance is being sought from  federal government engineers  to have a new gauging station  on Chapman Creek.

Children can be registered on  the day school opens, Sept. 5,  but parents may avoid the hectic excitement of school opening day by. seeing the school  secretary on the Friday before,  Sept. 1.  Birth certificates are needed  for registering children who are  just beginning school whether it  is kindergarten or grade one.  Local stores have the supplies  which the school requires pupils to have for school opening  on Tuesday, Sept. 5.  CHEVY CAR KEY  A Chevy car key on a ring  was picked up at Roberts Creek  picnic park Monday night and  left at the Coast News office.  Gibsons Centennial committee with $8,500 left in its project  fund has decided to go ahead  in Kinsmen park with a wading  pool for youngsters, a shuffle  board and checker board for  oldsters and landscaping as  far as the money will go,  This was reported at Tuesday night's council meeting by  Councillor Fred Feeney as representative of council on the  committee.  Plans will be sent to Victoria  Centennial committee headquarters for approval and once that  is obtained tenders will be  called.  It was suggested that the 3,500  gallon pool could also be used  in winter, if the weather is cold  enough, as a small skating rink.  If arrangements can be made  a drinking fountain will be built  on which there would be a  plaque informing the public that  it is a Centennial project.  British Columbia's teachers  bave been advised to seek "significant" salary increases for  ithe coming year.  The B.C. Teachers' Federation's agreements committee  made this recommendation following a week-long economic  seminar at Prince George College.  Actual percentage increases to  be sought will be decided by  ieach teacher association in the  [province.  This school district expects  Ito be involved in teacher salary  negotiations shortly as the two  lyear agreement previously arranged comes to an end.  There is also a move afoot  Ito have the services of a professional negotiator in dealings  iwith teachers. Such negotiators  iwould operate in a region which  would cover more than one  school district.  The 89 local associations of  ,the teachers' federation, which  (will begin salary bargaining  sessions with school boards in  late September, have also been  advised to consider seeking establishment of supplementary  sick leave benefits, shared cost  group life insurance and detached duty, or educational leave,  provisions.  UNNECESSARY PAINTING of slogans on public buildings in Gibsons village centre has the ROMP working to find out who did it.  ���The Co-op, Bank of Montreal, Thriftee Dress Shop and the Coast  News were plastered with what looks like brown shingle stain like  the one shown above.        -���'���'���  Comments made by passersby were to the effect that such  actions did not show much love and aroused animosity.

This event will start  at 2 p.m.  There are 90 attending this  camp from Kelowna, Penticton,  Powell River, Vancouver Island  and some other mainland areas.  Bandmaster Ron Smart of Hollywood Temple band is conducting the music camp.  Tenders for what has been reported as $400,000 worth of improvements to Langdale ferry  slip to include extra lines for  ferry parking, were reported  opened Tuesday afternoon but  further consideration was left  over until Friday.  It is understood the tenders  include a considerable amount  of dredging at the mouth and  adjacent to Langdale Creek. It  was also reported that the ferry  authority has purchased property on the Salvation Army side  of the creek which would place  the creek completely within the  property of the Ferry Authority  from the highway to its mouth.  The   building,   plumbing   and  sewage bylaws of the Sunshine  Coast    Regional    district    will  come into effect on Sept. 1 in  the   area   from   Langdale   to  Earl's    Cove    extending    from  1,500 feet inland above the highway, down to the water's edge.  This  was  decided  at Friday  night's meeting of the regional  board in Gibsons municipal office. The board is expecting difficulties to arise as a result of  the placing of the  area  under  . restrictive- bylaws   but  it  was  felt that for the  protection  of  all there  must be  regulations.,  F. A. Reyburn, from Burnaby  the new district building inspector,   will   be   on   the  job  after  Labor  day  and  will  be  available  Saturdays,   but not  Mondays.  Sechelt's rat situation may  be eased now that, starting in  late September, garbage will  be taken to the new Regional  District dump on the east side  of Porpoise Bay, according to  a decision made by the Regional directors Friday night.  At present Sechelt is using  the village dump on Sechelt  Lands property, the lease of  which expires at the end of Sep-  SOCIAL HOUR  A social hour followed the  Regional District meeting in  Gibsons on Friday night of last  week. It was arranged by Gibsons council with Mrs. Wes  Hodgson, Mrs. W. S. Potter and  Mrs. Jules Mainil serving coffee and refreshments at the  close of the business  meeting.  tember. Application was made  in a letter by Syd Waters to the  board seeking permission to use  the dump. This was granted at  the cost to him of $10 per load.  He must also keep the dump  clean and look after his own  fill. To avoid complications with  a reserve dump, signs will be  put up informing the public  where the regional dump ia  situated.  Garbage plan  Complaints have reached the  Coast News over the garbage  pile-ups on the government dock  and floats. With increased boat  traffic and no facilities supplied for containing garbage, it  becomes scattered. This is creating an unpleasant picture of  Gibsons harbor facilities.  Questions over responsibility  point to federal officials and  expectations are that before  too long some containers will  be available to which visiting  boatmen will be able to place  unwanted garbage.  Budd Kiewitz of Shell Oil distributors wants to place two garbage containers on the government dock, providing the village council arranges a garbage  pickup. Councillor Feeney  agreed at Tuesday night's meeting something should be done.  He explained in the past such a  system attracted other people  to leave their garbage in the  wharf containers. As a trial four  standard garbage cans will be  placed for a two tmonth trial  with a pickup arranged. Coast News, Aug. 31, 1967.  Phone 886-2622       P.O. Box 460, Gibsons. B.C.  Serving the Mt.

Peterson, provincial minister of labor, must have  dictated with tongue in cheek the following sentence from his Labor Day message:  "It is my sincere hope that labor and management will wholeheartedly co-operate with the department during the years ahead  to the end that even more can be accomplished in the next half  century."  The honorable gentleman must be cognizant of labor's general  feelings toward his government's efforts to regulate labor. He has  no doubt that his sincere hope is just what he says ��� a hope.  It would be of definite interest to have a written history of the  labor movement of British Columbia in relation to the labor picture of the northwest United States.  The northwest area,, taking in the western states and British  Columbia, has for years been far from a peaceful labor relations  field. Whether government action in the labor field will ever reach  the point where it can proclaim an outbreak of labor peace, is  something on which to ponder. Hon. Mr. Peterson's sincere hope  can be termed a gesture, nothing more.  Some while back Dr. Stuart Jamieson of the UBC department  of economics described this province as a remaining frontier region, a breeding ground of militant labor influenced toy American  wage and living standards to a greater degree than workers in  other provinces.  British Columbia like the entire west coast region of the North  American continent is being discovered by more and more people  from the eastern side of the Great Divide which separates the  coastal area from the more placid world of labor east of the mountains.  Militancy of unions along with a combative provincial government keeps labor news in the daily press. Nowhere in all Canada  ' is there so much press space taken up with labor news as occurs  in British Columbia. Whether this be good or bad will have to be  left to the decision of the reader.  Unions maintain it is the employer that is militant, with government support, citing Bill 43. Cause and effect may enter the  picture here but who is going to admit which is the definite cause  and which is the definite effect.  However, Labor Day is coming up, a day on which labor, the  bosses and the government can, under our present weather conditions spread out on a beach or lawn and have a sunbath.  Wanted: 1 monkey wrench  To keep readers posted, the paragraphs that follow are offered along with a concluding comment:  From the Vancouver press: Prime Minister Pearson announces  hundreds of millions of dollars to be cut out of departmental spending.  Heading in the Sunday Telegraph (London): In the Whitehall  {government) Wasteland ��� Why the government cannot learn  from private industry how to control its spending.  In Canada the residential building materials cost index according to bureau of statistics figures for 1935J39 was 100; for  1949, 159.3 and for July 1967, 363.3. (What could be bought for $100  in 1939 now costs roughly $363.)  ���The prime minister announced in Ottawa the government has  decided to postpone expansion of the housing program until later  in the fall.  Finance Minister Mitchell Sharp in announcing his budget this  year recalled what he said of the 1966 budget. He said: "The keynote of this budget is moderation."  ���Colin Cameron, M.P. Nanaimo-Cowichan, speaking in this  year's budget debate: "I could almost see this minister (Hon. Mitchell Sharp) standing in the pulpit wagging his finger to the house  and preaching the virtues of thrift and hard work."  From Canadian Business, a monthly magazine for management: "With the third quarter of the year under way American  business leaders are still waiting for fulfillment of Johnson Administration forecasts of a resurgence in the economy.. .Sales of  virtually all durable consumer goods are down 25 to 50 percent below levels of the 1964-65 boom years. Inflation has cut the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar by 2.8 percent in the last year."  (Now, having taken a rather hurried look at the economic  whirligig on which we are involved, including the slow but steady  rise in the price of everything, make one guess as to its outcome.  Who is going to put the monkey wrench in the economic merry-  go-round on which we are now riding,  A monetary reform plan without gold or dollar basis is reported to have been achieved by non-communist nations at a special conference. Apparently the situation is not going unnoticed.  AN IMPORTANT TREATY  Very few Canadians realize  that the important Halibut fish,  caught for the West Coast was  responsible for our final break  from the Colonial Office in London.  Prior to 1924 all of the foreign  affairs and state documents  with    foreign    countries    were  handled by the London Colonial  Office. In 1924 with the completion of the Halibut Conservation Act, Prime Minister  McKenzie King decided that  Canada would sign the Act herself and so completed negotiations with the United States  Government. From this day on  Canada looked after her own  international affairs.  I  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FO*  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers.

I ran into another car  and injured a passenger, a boy  aged six. The accident was all  my fault. Neither N nor the  other driver had insurance. I  have paid for the damage done  to the other car and have made  an agreement with the boy's  parents that I will pay his  doctor's bills and $500 for his  pain and suffering. I don't want  to pay this money without being sure there will be no further claim later on. I believe  what I need is a release. The  parents have offered to sign  any document I require. Am I  fully protected?  A. You sure aren't. ' An infant (in law anyone under 21  years of age) can't give a release and no one else can give  it for him. You are quite correct in your thinking that you  should obtain a release. If you  don't receive this, an additional  claim could be made against  you in the future.  You should see your lawyer  and obtain a release from the  owner and driver of the car  for the car damage as well as  an admission that he or they  are not injured and are settling all claims for the money  involved.  Only the court (or in certain  cases, the public trustee) can  release an infant. This is what  is known as an infant settlement.     Ordinarily     a     person  POINT  OF LAW  bu ^Ar [-Practicing. oLawytr  claiming damages as a result  of a car accident has one year  in which to sue. In the case  of an infant it is one year from  his 21st birthday.  An infant settlement is a procedure whereby your lawyer  will appear before the court  with the proper documents and  affidavits, testifying to all the  circumstances of the injury,  and the court, if it sees fit, will  order a settlement on this basis.  The doctors' bills and medical  and legal expenses will be  ordered paid and the $500 (if  the court approves this amount)  will be ordered paid into court  till the infant is 21.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Selma Park Community association held its sports day  Aug. 23 with races, a ball game  and water sports. Proceeds  were added to the fund for  the proposed hall.  Mr. A. Holden still holds his  gift as water diviner by witching water at a depth of three  feet on Campbell's property,  Hall road, Roberts Creek.  Owing to an overflow of students the school board found  it necessary to rent Gibsons  Legion hall on a temporary  basis to use for high school  students.  C. P.

Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa  Dogs are still hanging on to  their role as man's best friend  in an increasingly city-type of  existence that is completely  foreign to wild life as their  ancestors knew it.  Estimates vary but there are  certainly more than 2,000.000  dogs in Canada.  Purebred dog breeding is on  the increase ��� perhaps another  indication of the affluent society  ��� but the dog has friends in  high and low places. Today he  travels by air, lives in air-conditioned apartments, rides In  the family car, goes hunting,  works for protective agencies,  and carries out some important  chores on the farm. It isn't  much fun barking at a tractor  but the Collie is still an all-  round farm dog especially suited  to  Canadian   conditions.  In the city the unpedigreed  mutt does his share of baby  sitting, house watching and occasionally visits the city pound  and the humane society.  Dogs give employment to  people apart from the daily  walk around the block. They  are the inspiration behind several pieces of legislation, they  give work to a large staff operating the Livestock Pedigree  act, they command high stud  prices, keep obedience classes  fMled and of course they use  collars and kennels and leads  and consume vast quantities of  pet food. To pet lovers the  merits of dogs far outweigh  such questionable traits as going around unclad, fouling up  lawns when the owners let them  out between dusk and dawn arjd  harassing postmen engaged in  delivering H.M.  mail.  The number of purebred dogs  registered with the Canadian  Kennel Club went up to approximately 41,000 last year, an increase of some 2,500 from the  previous year.  The club is incorporated under the Livestock Pedigree act  which is administered for the  and since then it has doubled  registrations  show     only     833  dog owners by the Canada Department v of Agriculture.

The pedigrees are maintained by National Livestock Records, a  grouping of most of the purebred livestock associations of  Canada formed for the purpose  of verifying the credentials of  purebred animals.  The Kennel club has kept records since the 1890's when it  listed 35 breeds, of which 11  were terriers. Cocker spaniels,  St. Bernards and fox terriers,  Collies and setters seem to have  been the most popular breeds  in the first year.

In the far north  any dog that can mush is a  husky, which explains why  there is no breed of that name.  The Collie, probably the best  all-round working dog in agriculture in this country, has  been well represented in the  stud book since the beginning  of the century and there are  1,100 Collies currently registered. .The so-called Miniature  Collie is actually a Shetland  Sheepdog.  The terrier group has seen  a big fall in registration of fox  terriers. The Boston terrier (818  entries) doesn't come under  that grouping but is classed as  a non-sporting dog.  Perhaps the favorite hunting  dog in Canada, if purebred registrations are a clue, is the  again to 110 breeds recognized  by the  Canadian Kennel  Club.  In the 1965 litter record and  stud book, poodles are shown  to be in first place with around  9,000 registrations and they still  lead. No other breed comes  close to this. The poodle (toy,  standard and miniature are  counted together under the  breed name) has become popular, say breeders, partly because it adapts well to apartment living. It was originaly  a hunting dog but civilization  refined him (or spoiled him)  and now he takes as much  pride in clean housekeeping as  his owner does.  Other indoor pets that show  substantial registration are the  Chihuahuas with 1.800, Dachshunds with 1,900, Pomeranians  with 1,100 and Pekingese 850.  Spaniels continue to have a  firm grip on man's affections  both in the home and on the  hunt. More than 2,000 of all  types are registered. The first  dog registered in Canada was  an English Setter named Forest  Fern.  Numerically second to poodles  with  3,350. registrations,  is the  German Shepherd, perhaps  Ihe  outstanding ' worfcing   dog;    he  does police and guard duty and;  is  famous  as the  Seeing  Eye.  By  contrast  the   proud Dober-  man  Pinscher,   a  one-man dog  sometimes   trained   for   guard  duty, has only 374 registrations.  Although    there    are    many  thousands of huskies in Canada,  retriever, five breeds of which  show a total  of 2,200 registrations. In  contrast the German  pointers  muster  only  400.  Some breeds have enjoyed a  burst of popularity through  publicity such as that given by  Walt Disney to the Cairn Terrier arid by: the Royal Family  to the Welsh Corgi but the  German Shepherd was well established before the canine  film star R_n Tin Tin came on  the scene. The King Charles  spaniel breed was the favorite  of the monarch ��� the one who  kept his head ��� and it is still  around as a toy dog in this  country.  The Arbutus Rebekah Lodge  No. 76, Gibsons held a Raspberry Tea at the home of Mrs.  Elsie Hutchins of the Headlands on the afternoon of Aug.  16.  Noble Grand, Mrs. Lionel  Singlehurst opened the tea and  District Deputy President Mrs.  Gladys Brown of Middlepoint,  with Mrs. Singlehurst, shared  honors of pouring tea. The  beautiful floral arrangement on  the tea table was done by Mrs.  Doris  Drummond.  Mrs. Martha Weal and Mrs.  Drummond were in charge of  a well-stocked bake table, while  Mrs. Ritchey and Mrs. Gladys  Armour presided over the  apron and novelty table.  The ticket booth was in the  capable hands of Mrs. Vida  Burt, Mrs. Eva Peterson  with Mrs. Elsie Hutchins and  Mr. and Mrs. J. Hutchins jr.  of Coquitlam, nobly served in  the kitchen.  The Misses Hutchins and  Odette Voisin and friend charmed the ladies during the after  noon as servitors. Members of  the Arbutus Lodge thank their  many friends for joining w:th  them on this pleasant occasion  making the afteroon a resounding success.

When the forest closures are lifted there will be  widespead putttiq notice and  hunting seasons as set forth in  the Game Regulations will be  automatically  open.

Plan  No.   980  (copyright  No. 117093)  980 square feet  Into every life there comes  a time when the family has  grown and the old home is too  big for mum" and dad. The  first impulse is to sell the big  house, and to move into an  apartment, but after a while,  apartment living palls and the  thought of a small house with  a garden around it becomes  attractive.  Here is an ideal plan for a  retirement home. It has 980  square feet of compactly arranged living space. The living  room is large, 21' x 11' with a  fireplace on the end wall. Note  the attractive dining and family  room which opens out into a  patio at the rear of the house.  There is an efficiently planned  kitchen with utilityand furnace  room immediately adjacent.  Storage is planned at the end  of the carport with doors opening both into the carport and  out onto the garden-.  The bedrooms are large with  lots of cupboard space, and  the bathroom has a full wall  vanity with a storage under.  This is a little gem of a home,  with the roof line projecting  to cover the sidewalk and provide shelter from the carport.  Horizontal siding with a shake  roof, "colonial type" windows  with shutters present a look  of coziness not always noted  in small houses.  It is designed to the standards  of the National Building Code  of Canada, and blueprints can-  be obtained by writing the  Building Centre (B.C.) Ltd., 96  Kingsway, Vancouver, B.C.

Henry Kelly of St. Bartholomew's Anglican church, who  with his wife and two daughters,  Anne and" Barbara, motored  along the California coast on a  return visit to the area they enjoyed five years ago.  The only one of the family who  didn't go was pet Joe, the family six year old Corgi, who was  the disconsolate guest of good  neighbors.  Once over the border they  soon entered the off-beat road  leading through the tall, majestic redwoods. The Kellys noted  destructive evidence remained,  in spite of the reconstruction  following the heavy flood in that  area four years ago. A visit to  San Francisco included a trip to  the fabulous Golden Gate park  where Padre Kelly renewed a  nodding acquaintance with the  usually placid giant orangutang,  who by the way, went berserk a  day or so later and gnawed the  arm off his keeper.  One of their projects on this  safari as on the previous one,  was to visit the old Spanish  Missions along the El Camino  Real and on this occasion, San  Luis Obi-bo, a venerable mission dating back to 1772 well  repaid them with the peace and  quietude of its old world surroundings.  The high moment or tne Disneyland visit was the New Orleans Square, a true to life replica of New Orleans during the  French period, iron railings and  all. The Kellys came away after a full day's visit at this  fabulous never-never land, marvelling at the skill and craftsmanship of even just this comparatively small segment which  kept them on the go from early  morning until late in the evening.  San Diego with its famous Balboa Park provided a world of  interest with its zoo, museum,  art gallery, outdoor bandshell  and the replica of Shakespeare's  Globe Theatre. It was here the  family's travel finances received a stiff blow, as Gov Reagan's  five percent across the board  tax bill went into effect, and  with it, spiralling costs on almost every commodity ���.cigarettes went from 33 to 42c a  pack, gas 39 to 47c a gallon,  food prices took an immediate  jump and state park tolls went  up 100% It was not until the  family arrived back in Oregon  where there is no state tax, that  they felt the easement on their  badly strained pocket book.  In Olympia, Washington state  capital, they marvelled' at the  marbled grandeur of the dome  of the capitol and the fabulous  flower gardens now tended by  a former gardener of Butchart's  in Victoria. A brief side visit  was made to Sacramento, Salem  and Lake Tahoe, now over-run  by commercialism and equally  commercial - minded tourists,  then back over the border. The  Kellys noted considerably more  campers, like themselves, and  experienced difficulty in obtaining admission to state park  camp facilities, even to queue-  ing up to register in the long  line-up as early as 7:30 in the  morning.

Nevens  TV shop, asking Gibsons council  to consider granting him ia license to operate a cafe type  business to be known as the Sea-  Dog Run, resulted after discussion, in the letter being held  over until the next meeting,  while other investigations were  underway relative to it.  His letter explained he planned to hold poetry and prose  readings, also .film showings  which he hoped would be produced in this area. He stressed  his desire to improve the social  life of young people.  Councillor Drummond commented that we already have  an arts and crafts council. Councillor Feeney thought it would  -not be conducive to the betterment of the community. He did  not feel Gibsons would benefit.  Later he added that he feared  an invasion of hippies from  Vancouver  A letter from Hon. Dan Campbell, municipal affairs minister,  instructing municipalities to  solve their sewage problems,  drew from the . chairman the.  remark that if the village could  get some of the $130,000,000 in  the Bennett government surplus  it would be happy to comply.  The letter will be acknowledged  and the minister will be informed the village is doing the best  it can under the circumstances.  Chairman Hodgson will repre-  rent Giibsons council on the Regional College board with Councillor Drummond as alternate.  This board is considering the establishment of a regional college possibly in West Vancouver to cover five school board  areas.

Well over 60 guests, a number from out of town, and folk  from West Sechelt and Roberts  Creek enjoyed a pleasant afternoon with the vicar, Rev. J. H.  Kelly, his wife and members of  the St. Bartholomew Gibsons  branch of Anglican Church Women, under whose auspices the  Raspberry Tea was held.  ���In charge of the tea was Mrs.  Jean Atkinson, assisted1 by Mrs.  E.

At least not since he met up  with a truck on the 'highway  ���in front of the Twilight Theatre  as he was attempting to follow Pam Boothroyd across to  the Sunnycrest shopping centre.  At first the worst was feared, such a little pup and such  a monstrous size truck! However in spite of a cracked pelvis and partiially paralized  front quarters and barking  muscles impaired four-year-old  Mark Boothroyd's six month's  old pup survived the accident.  With expert nursing by Lucy  the Boothroyd's cat who constantly cuddles and. licks the  victim's wounds, this in spite  of the sudden arrival of her  own two kittens with eyes  scarcely opened yet, plus the  ministrations of all three Booth-  royds, Whiskey though still far  from frisky is back on his feet  in spite of a decided wonk to  his left paw. As for the bark,  just hear him sounding off at  mealtime!  Younger members of the Port  Mellon Community Association  not only enjoyed a full summer  of swimming under the watchful eye of recreation and swimming instructress Jeanette Hay-  man, but they also qualified  for the Red Cross Water Safety  certificates.

Under the supervision of Miss  Hayman, a qualified swimming  instructor and fourth year physical education student at University of British Columbia,  Seaside Beach has been the  scene of much activity during  July and August, the favorite  recreation spot for 50 or more  youngsters who spent vacation  time with all sorts of things to  do. Apart from swimming they  were taught the fundamentals of  water safety, including mouth-  to-mouth resuscitation. A full  program throughout the season  of events included games, crafts  volleyball, along with such special weekly features as a swim  and log rolling meet, weiner  roast, fish derby, pet show,  dinosaur egg hunt (the eggs,  huge watermelons) ��� finishing  up the season with a penny carnival.  Bipin Oza, chairman of publicity and public relations committee, gave full credit to Miss  Hayman for the progress made  in all divisions of the swimming  and water safety program and  also for her well organized recreation activity throughout the  summer months.

And as supreme guardian of  the International Order of  Job's Daughters, she is also an  unofficial ambassador of goodwill to other countries.  Mrs. Wilson was installed in  office two weeks ago in Portland, Ore., and last Thursday,  she was in Gibsons, one of the  B.C. points she visited. Powell  River and Prince George were  the others.  Before the end of 1968 she  will have visited 44 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, and  seven countries.  On Tuesday she flew to Alaska, prior to returning to Canada to visit London, Ont., and  Winnipeg..    ���,  Job's Daughters is an organization of teen-age girls. of Masonic relationships, and the purpose of Mrs. Wilson's travels is  to visit and inspect the Bethels,  the individual groups that make  up the Order.'  Mr. Wilson will accompany  his wife on the Australia-Guam-  Phillippines-Hawaii leg of her  overseas inspection tour.  In 1969 the Supreme Guardian  will be Mrs. William Erith of  Vancouver, the first Canadian  to hold that office. The supreme  session will be held in Vancouver in 1970 -���the order's 50th  anniversary   year.  The Order does a great deal  of work for charity in. various  local areas, although occasionally appeals are organized on  an  international scale.

In  fact Coon showed many of the  physical attributes of his sire,  the puffed out head, black bushy  eyebrows, the striped markings  on body and tail and the slanty  eyes.  One other characteristic de^  rived from his father, the ability to sit up quite casually and  munch food held by his front  paws. Tragically Coon met up  with a tractor and is gone from  this world.

INN  for fine  CUISINE  come to  Secret Cove  RESERVATIONS  885-9998  Public mind revealed  In the opinion of Western  Canadians, foreign affairs, social welfare, taxes and the cost  of living are among the main  issues the federal government  should be dealing with. Other  important issues are leadership,  national./unity, and econoniic  development . of the country.  These areas of concern were  pinpointed by samplings of  public opinion conducted in  Western Canada during July  and August, in the third stage  of a nation-wide opinion poll  for the Progressive Conservative Party.  The PC Public Opinion Poll,  organized by MP Heward Graf-  ftey from Brome^-Missisquoi  constituency in Quebec, has  been operating since May 25.  Some 1,700 people in Manitoba, ' Saskatchewan, Alberta  and British Columbia were asked the same question: "What  do YOU think are the main  issues facing Canada that your  federal legislators should be  dealing with now?" Their  opinions filled 110 hours of  tapes. Transcribed and tabulated, the diverse thoughts of these  people, from widely scattered  areas, are brought together  here in this report.  To capture the overall mood  of the west, we pooled all our  findings, and in order of importance the issues are:  Foreign  Affairs.  Social  Welfare.  Taxes and the cost of living.  Government of the nation  (Methods,   procedure,   etc.)  Leadership.  Economic Development.  National Unity.  French ��� English Relations.  Education.  Divorce, abortion, birth control.  Housing..  Agriculture (low rating because interviews were in cities  and towns).  Indian Affairs.  Dominion-Provincial relations.  Conservation ��� including water and air pollution.  This list is the amalgamation  of findings in each of the provinces. Within one or two provinces, there were variations  from the above list in the  order of importance of the issues.

Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. How does a hostess properly issue her invitations to a  shower in honor of a bride-  elect?  A. She may either phone her  invitations, or write notes. And  she should inform her guests  whether it is to be a general  gift party or one of a specific  kind, such as lingerie and Jinen,  or kitchenware.  O. What are the cocktail  wines?  A. Chilled sherry or dry  champagne ire often served  instead of cocktails. A chilled  dry white wine, such as moselle,  is preferred by some.  Q.

After his  Highland Scot father died while  serving the British Army in the  American   Revolutionary   War,  : young     Vermont-born     Fraser  joined the North-West Company  "and served as a clerk in various  Canadian outposts.  He became a partner in 1801. He set  up trading posts in  the  Peace  River    district,    explored west  of the Rockies and established  Fort   St.   James,   Fort  Fraser  < and Fort George.  yy On May  28,     1808,     Fraser  launched an    expedition    from  Fort George, immediately south  of   Prince   George,   to   explore  the length  of what he thought  was the Columbia River. He led  two   lieutenants,   19   voyageurs  and two Indian guides in four  canoes.    The    party    returned  August   6   after   completing   a  very   difficult   journey   of   discovery down  the  Fraser River  to the area   of  New  Westminster,  where hostile  coastal Indians   turned   them   back,   and  they   re-traced   their   route   up  the river.  PYaser reported in his journal  "my    great    disappointment in  not seeing the main ocean, having gone so near it as to be  almost within view. We besides  wished very much to observe  the longitude. The latitude is  49 degrees nearly, while that  of the entrance of the Columbia is 46 degrees 20". This river  is therefore not the Columbia."  On June 9 Fraser reports finding the worst rapids they had  yet seen: "Here the channel  contracts to about forty yards,  and is enclosed by two precipices of immense height which,  bending towards each other,  make it narrower above than  ( below. The water which rolls  down this extraordinary passage in tumultuous waves and  with great velocity had a frightful appearance. However, it being absolutely impossible to  carry the canoes by land, all  hands without hesitation embarked as it were 'a corps  Perdu' upon the mercy of this  awful tide. Once engaged, the  die was cast, our great difficulty consisted in keeping the  canoes within the medium of  fil d'eau, that is, clear of the  precipice on one side and from  the gulfs formed by the waves  on the other. Thus skimming  along as fast as lightning, the  crews, cool and determined,  followed each other in awful  silence, and when we arrived  at the end, we stood gazin��  at each other in silent congratulation at our narrow escape  from   total  destruction."

I!  En Are Unions necessary?  Monday is Labor Day. Labor,  of course, refers to anyone and  everyone who earns a wage but  .this article will be restricted to  labor unions, which is what is  usually envisioned when Labor  Day is mentioned.  Labor Day: Will you reflect  on what that day represents or  will it be just another holiday?  It is an important day for unions as it offers us an opportunity to tell our story in a conducive atmsphere that exists only  once a year. One day a year  labor unions become socially  acceptable and so strive on that  day to extend their acceptability for a longer period of time  than just a day.  Unions have won acceptance  as legal entities in this great  country but are not yet accepted socially; they are only tolerated, save for one day a year.  Unions must win social acceptance if they are to help in solving the growing problems of  our increasingly complex society and it is our hope that the  following article on unions will  lead us towards that goal.  Unions are part of our democratic machinery. Individuals  can do little to protect themselves in our modern mass society. In unity, however, there is  strength  and  the   labor  move  ment uses this strength to protect and help the working man  and his family, our older citizens, our younger people and,  in many cases, the less fortunate at home and abroad.  Many people ask, since conditions are so much better now,  do we still need unions? The  answer is yes. Seventy percent  of the working force remains  unorganized. Many of these people are still subject to sweatshop conditions or receive minimum wages of $1.25 an hour or  less in many cases. At least one  quarter of the Canadian population lives in poverty, often because of low wages through lack  of unionization.  Unions  not only bargain collectively for a share of the returns of what they produce, but  they   act   as   watchdogs   over  their    industries.    Unions    are  chiefly responsible for most of  the   safety  devices  and  procedures that have developed over  the   years.   They   carry   grievances   from   the   employees   to  the    management    about    bad  working   conditions,   unjust  firings and poor company policies  and practices. And they concern  themselves with the future.  There are many new challenges such as automation. Automation can bring prosperity and  rising living standards to all.  But   it   can   also   destroy   jobs  BOWLERS WANTED  I  for  Sechelt Sports Ciub  J.  ELDRED  886-2474  E. JOHNSON  885-9383  R.

If  . the worker is out of work and  not earning, he is unable to buy  the products that automation  produces. And if the products  are not bought, there is no point  in producing them. People tend  to forget that the consumer is  also the producer. If he cannot  afford to consume the merchandise produced, production stops  and profits disappear.  Unions are in favor of automation. In spite of the problems  that will  arise  they  are confident that through expansionary  government policy and increased  vocational  training  and  retraining, these problems can be  solved.  Special  cushioning provisions in collective agreements  can help individual workers hit  by automation. Such provisions  were won by the Oil Workers in  B.C. in 1965 but only after the  province  was led to  the  brink  of   a   general   work   stoppage  because of the refusal of the oil  companies   to   sign   automation  provisions in their contracts.  A historic break-through was  scored when united British Columbia labor through aroused  public opinion, caused the provincial government to endorse  labor's stand. The implications  of the resulting B.C. agreements  are now being, felt across Canada and throughout the United  States. Labor's position that  automation should be negotiated has been supported by Mr.  DeMolay DANCE  featuring  Vancouver Specter  SATURDAY, SEPT. 2  Elphinstone Gym  8:30 to 12 midnight  $1-50 single  fashion  nGWSR-S  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADaJ  Little girls, decked out in  brightly colored, creatively patterned cotton knits, head back  to school for fall '67, reports  the Canadian Cotton Council.

He said: "The  present situation which permits  management to make, unilateral  changes in working conditions  during the contract period is a  manifest inequity which clamors  for attention and correction."  What Adam Smith said in 1776  is   still   true  today.   Employers  "are always and everywhere in  a sort of tacit, but constant and  uniform    combination,    not    to  raise  the   wages   of  labor..."  Yet   in   an   economy   which   is  growing,   wages   must   rise   so  that people can buy the increasing number of goods  and services produced. If wages do not  rise, depression will result. Unions, therefore are necessary to  maintain   :the   balance   in   the  economy that is a condition of  continued prosperity. "/.  The following quote from Abra��'-  ham Lincoln seems to sum up  our purpose very well. "Whenever there is a conflict between  human    rights    and    property  rights, human rights must prevail. . .Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is  only the fruit of labor and could  not have  existed if labor  had  not existed first.  Labor is  the  superior of capital and deserves  much    the    higher    considerations."  ���Mike Blaney, on behalf of Local 297, International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers.

Improved facilities aid swimmers  Port Mellon's Community association, reviewing the activity of the children's swimming  and recreation program this  summer, report it one of the  most successful in the 20 year  history of this active group.  Improved facilities including  the new causeway and new  mooring for boats added greatly to the access and convenience  to Seaside Park, resulting in  greater interest and activity  throughout the season by the  250 members.  Those folk working in the  Canadian Forest Products mill  and resident in Port Mellon con  tributed  extra  fees  toward  the  expansion  of the program.  The association also sponsored baseball, soccer and recreation in Port Mellon, Roberts  Creek and Sechelt. Other activities vf or the senior members included a most successful summer program in arts and crafts,  square dancing with lessons for  members; baseball, tennis and  indoor badminton also had their  place.  One of the most popular features of the association's broad  range of activity is the well  stocked public library, free to  members.  This year's slate of hard work  ing officers are, president, R.

Kindergarten beginners report at Gibsons and Sechelt  Elementary schools or Madeira  Park school at 10:30 a.m.  While no definite figure on  school population will be available until mid-September it is  expected there will be approximately'2,050 attending public  schools in the district. This  does not mean there is an increase in the general population because the school attendance increase is made up  largely by the entry of children  from the Indian reserve to  kindergarten, elementary and  secondary school classes.  The breakdown is expected  to   be   approximately   1,500   in  elementary schools ,and possibly up to 600 in the secondary  schools at Gibsons and Pender  Harbor secondary schools. Elphinstone secondary school will  be taking on about 50 in upper  grades from the Indian reserve.  While building operations will  have some effect at Elphinstone  school it will not have any effect on present accommodation.  Growing kindergarten classes  will have an effect on future  building requirements. The fact  that the school board has been  forced into using 10 detached  classrooms at a cost of not less  than $3,000 a month, strictly out  of budget and non-shareable as  regards departmental participation, has relieved the accommodation situation. Over a one  year period these temporary  classrooms are costing about  $30,000.  September food outlook  Ample supplies of apples, potatoes and most vegetables,  with lower' but steady prices  for vegetables, are predicted in  the Food Outlook prepared by  CDA's Economics Branch for  September.  Egg prices are likely to advance moderately to near their  seasonal high for 1967.  Heavy Turkey prices will remain relatively low as stocks  and early marketings are both  large.  Broiler Chicken prices could  firm slightly, production having  been reduced.  Beef   prices   may   strengthen  under strong consumer demand  and relatively  lighter supplies.  Slightly easier prices are predicted for pork because supplies are likely to be up.  A bumper crop of apples is  in the making, especially in  British Columbia. Early varieties are in plentiful supply and  demand is good.  Potato growing conditions  have been good and the fall  crop should be ample.  Local production is ample for  most vegetables, with lower but  steady  prices.  Supplies of lettuce are barely  meeting the demand.

A startling and proven fact: one classroom of  high school students is wiped out every week because of  car accidents.  It is an unbearable statistic, but true. More young  Canadians are killed in automobile accidents than by any  other cause.  Young drivers as a group are involved in more  automobile accidents than any other drivers. This is the  simple reason insurance rates are higher for them.  We, in the automobile insurance industry, provide training courses, bursaries and technical assistance  to high school instructors to help them teach safe driving  to their students.  Students who pass approved high school driver  training courses earn lower insurance premiums.  At present, only 14% of high schools across  Canada have these driver training courses.  Parents, teachers ��� just ask yourselves: Must a  classroom be wiped out next week?  You can help prevent such tragedies by supporting driver training programmes in your community.

On the Waterfront  (By ERNIE BURNETT)  Another wonderful week has  past and the forecast is good  for a couple of weeks yet. The  unfortunate part of it is that so  many who depend on the woods  for a livelihood are out of work.  For those like myself, who live  and work on the water, it's fine.  The fishing is picking up  again, with a few nice large fish  showing, but over the summer, ���  the fishing has been far below  average. The weekend brought  a lot of visitors to the bay, but  with the same old complaint,  not a store open, and is> there  a garbage can on the dock.  Those of you who were around  the dock over the weekend know  where the garbage goes. Very  pleasant, wasn't it? Really,  though, it wasn't as bad as last  year, but there weren't as many  boats  laying  over here  either.  I personally know a lot of  boats that are bypassing us,  and there will be more next  year, unless something is done.  Next week I will try to sum up  the summer overall, so until  then, good fishing, good luck,  and be a good sportsman.  Fish news  Dept. of 'Fisheries  Aside from Sun Derby doings,  best spots last week according  to the fishery officer's report  were in the Howe Sound entrance area from Cowans Point  on up to Gower Point. Pinks  were the main item here accounting for about half the  catch with the remainder on  even split between small  chinooks and coho.  From inside waters came  word last week of a few heavy  chinooks to 25 lbs. taken at  Cotton Point at the' northeast  corner of Keats Island and up-,  inlet farther in the Anvil Island vicinity. Pinks are present  inside the Sound and the report mentions that fair numbers have been taken.  Upcoast Quarry Bay came up  W^h some fair coho fishing last  {week with several limits being  -<:taken  in  the  area  Wednesday,  '"^Thursday .and again  on Satuf  day. Saturday's     efforts    here  came up with several big  fish  to 8 lbs. Herring strip and plug-  cut herring have been the big  producers.    Other    spots mentioned for coho    were    Bjerre  Shoal     and    Egmont. Egmont  catches also included fair numbers of small chinooks.  Lees Bay, the Pender Harbour  entrance and nearby Bargain  Harbor have given up a num-  the three spots looks to be Lees  ber of heavy chinooks. Best of  Bay although dogfish have been  a problem here in the morning  and hake a real menace in the  evenings.  Big chinooks last week included a 25 pounder Saturday at  Lees Bay by a Mr. Lavender  of Ladner, a 20 Saturday at  Lees Bay by Bud Volp, a 20  and a 19 at Lees Bay Saturday  by Mrs. Reg.

You will remember when the  question of the nuisance dogs  were around the school and you  printed it in your paper the ar-.  tide also said that the police  were powerless as there was  no law dealing with it. So credit is without doubt due to the  new Corporal who knows that  there has been a law on the provincial statutes since 1949 that  given them the power to deal  with this in,the case of any dog  over four months old.
