Plan  to spend the day at the beach.  World travellers!  (By  ERNIE  BURNETT)  Over the weekend you may  have noticed a sail boat anchored in the bay, a common occurrence, but if you had looked^ a  little closer, you. wouldthayje  seen that she was flying^the  maple leaf flag as a courtesy  flag, and her flag staff was flying the Royal Hong Kong Yacht  club flag. She is the mast head  sloop Haida Sea, 35 ft. 3 inches  long, 8 ft. 9 inches beam, and is  powered by a 6 hp. Volvo Perita  which is used only for charging  batteries and for entering and  leaving harbors. 7   ,  She is owned and skippered by  retired Major J. R. Roberts, and  his charming wife Barbara. Major Roberts retired in Saigon in  1962, and then a long and most  interesting voyage started. They  left Singapore and went up Malacca Straits, stopping only at  Port.Dixon, Penang, and to the  island of Ceylon's Colombo about  the middle of February, 1963.  Then a 23 day passage to Aden  and a stop over for five weeks.  They then sailed for Ethiopia  :  Port   Sudan,   and   cleared   the  Suez Canal at the end of June,  1963, and spent the summer in  Lebanon, the Greek Islands and  as far as Corfu by the end of  the summer, then spent the winter in Malta. The following summer, 1964, they sailed to the  Italian Riviera, French Riviera,  Monaco, Balearic Islands, south  coast of Spain,and in September were in Gibraltar, getting  ready to cross the Atlantic.  They had a very bad* passage  from the Canary Islands to Barbados and the (trip took 42 days.  Then from Barbados to Grenada  and the next two years were  spent sailing up and down the  Caribbean, down as far as Trinidad. While in the Virgin Islands  their daughter decided *o get  married. Last October they set  out once more going south to  the Dutch Islands and several  stops along the way,  and then  JULY DRY  MONTH  The weather for July according to Dick Kennett, Giibsons  area weather observer, resulted  in a high of 82 degrees with a  mean average of. 62 degrees.  There were four days with rain  and total fall for those days was  1.37 inches. Sunny and warm  was his report about the month's  weather.  Panama, where they had mechanical difficulties and were held  up for a month. After 14 days  to the Galapagos, they spent 10  dajfs; then 3200; mile_7in 2$7day;s  7 fto 7Nukihiba''��� irif th^7Marquesas;;  ithen"anqtheii-.2300 odd miles to  Honolulu where they, slipped;the  ship and got ready for the trip  to Vancouver. They arrived in  Victoria on June 18, then into  Vancouver where they picked up  an old friend, Dick Stacey and  took a cruise around the coast  area.  Arriving in Gibsons on Friday,  they spent the weekend, leaving  early Monday morning for Vancouver, where they will rest up  and prepare for a return trip to  Grenada about the middle of  August.  Pick 1 of 82  Mr. F. A. Reyburn, of Burnaby has been selected as regional  building inspector by ' the Sunshine Coast Regional District  board of directors. His services  start Sept. 1- and by the same  time the building, plumbing and  sewage bylaws become effective  Mr. Reyurn has been with Burnaby municipality building department for the last many  years and was senior member of  the department. He was one of  four chosen out of 82 applicants  to get consideration for the job.  Starting salary will be $575 a  month. He has a summer home  in Pender Harbour area.  Protest made  Operation of a sawmill in Roberts Creek near the provincial  campsite park drew four letters  of protest to the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board meeting Friday  night in Roberts Creek school.  The letters argued the sawmill would reduce real estate  values in an area of residential  property, and that it was a menace to health as it drained towards a creek running through  the area.  Board members discussed how  firm were the regulations it  could use to .stop its operation  and came up with the advice  that the men involved in thh  sawmill operation apply to the  board and check on requirements under building, plumbing  and sewage bylaws before proceeding further.  Gibsons rejects  Bullock report  MAGISTRATE ANDREW Johnston of Sechelt died Tuesday afternoon at 2:15 in .Vancouver's  General" Hospital^ Death came  after a prolonged illness follow-,  ing a major operation. He had  been magistrate on the Sunshine  Coast many years and had served as magistrate in Vancouver  courts during the last 18 months  Mrs. Johnston was at the hospital when death came. Funeral  arrangements are being made in  Vancouver pending word from  relatives in Norway:  ���Gibsons village council has  decided not to go along with the  water-project as presented by  the Bullock report of the provincial government water rights  branch. ,  This report favors using Langdale Creek and available ground  '.water sources for a water system covering from Langdale to  Gower Point.  Instead the council favors the  Dayton report which favors.use  of Chapman Creek and an area  water board. Chapman Creek  watershed is approximately 10  times as great as Langdale  Creek and could service a much  wider area.  The Dayton report issued in  July, recommends.  1. That the village of Gibsons  advise the Sunshine Coast Regional District of its interest in  and support for an area water  organization to finance, design,  construct, operate and maintain  a primary water supply for the  Sunshine Coast.  2. That the village of Gibsons  advise the Sunshine Coast ��� Regional District that it will not  support   or   participate   in   the  specific plan of primary water  supply recommended in the 1967  Water Rights Branch repprt because the plan is inadequate and  unacceptable.  3. That the village of Gibsons  urge the Sunshine Coast Regional district to initiate and sponsor  a large scale plan of primary  water supply, utilizing Chapman  - Creek as the , source, designed  to serve both the initial and long  term requirements of the area  between Langdale and Halfmoon  Bay.  Argument produced in council  at Tuesday night's'meeting revealed the council was of the ���  opinion that local area water  district board would mean that  local district borrowing powers  would be tied up in the lesser  Bullock scheme. This would  leave no borrowing power available for the Chapman Creek  scheme. It was argued that it  would tend heavily towards double expenditure to eventually  bring in the Chapman Creek water source. Council felt that one .  expenditure even if larger,  would be cheaper in the long  run.  . Gibsons council Tuesday night  protested strongly against the  Public Health Unit's move to  "establish health officers in Powell River and Squamish, to service the Sunshine Coast area.  7  This would mean that no  health officer would be associated with the Gibsons "Health''Unit;  ��� ^Phil; Cremptoh; the ��� health off i-  7 ccr >fo. 7 rosign^7receritl^;"^wiil"  not-fbe replaced according id information provided by letter  from Dr." P. J. .Reynolds, director of the Regional Health Unit  from Powell River to Pemberton  Council decided to inform Dr.  Reynolds of council's attitude.  A copy of the letter will also go  to the Regional District board as  it too; is involved in health problems.^  B.CV Hydro asked for a water  supply to its North road substation by Oct. 31. The letter with  the request explained that $4,000  will be spent on landscaping the  south and west areas, work to  be completed by the end of October.  Bob Kelly, garbage collector,  has asked council to put up no  shooting signs around the garbage dump as he had suffered  experience of pot shot endeavours by persons in vicinity of  the dump.  Dumps open  After debate garbage dumps  under control of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District were left  open to the public until such  time as garbage collection is  organized.  This was decided at last Friday night's meeting of the board  in Roberts Creek school when  the problem of what to do with  Sechelt dump came to the fore.  It was decided that signs would  be erected showing the way to  the dump.  Chairman Norman Watson,'  basing his views on past experience, preferred the dumps remain closed to the public but  he bowed to the will of other  members of the board who were  o. Ihc opinion it was cheaper to  c'can up around dump areas  'hen it would be to have to clean  _._> .he highways from Port Mel-  Ian to Sechelt area.  r'EEK  WATER  BOARDS  n^bvts Creek and Gower  Porn! communities are planning  to c.ganize as water improvement districts. Meetings have  born held in both communities  :i v'ew of recommendations in  the  Bullock water report.  Regional men cautious  Which water should be used  for an area bulk supply, Chapman Creek or Langdale Creek?  The answer to this question is  sought by the Regional District  municipal board.  The .problem came before the  board at its Friday night meetr.  ing in-rRbberts .CreekrSchpph^The;  7b��ard?/mem^  a.  report,  on   the   situation   by:  Clerk Charles Gooding.  .In. summing up the situation  regarding bulk water supply at  present and some recommenda-  ions for the board on possible  action they could take, Clerk  Charles Gooding reported as follows:  ���There are two main areas in  which the board is concerned  with ��� bulk water supply. These -  areas are West Howe Sound and  the Sechelt, West. Sechelt and  Davis Bay area. In between the  Tsawcombe Indian Reserve area  and Roberts Creek have population pockets requiring supply  and distribution systems. I have  not considered Halfmoon Bay  area because at- present the  board has little information available on which to work.  From our present information,  the Bullock report and the Dayton report there is sufficient water available and sufficient users to make the exploitation of  these bulk supplies feasible. The  problems involved in obtaining  and. putting these bulk supplies  into Use are complex but are not  insurmountable providing the  existing legislation available under the Municipal Act and the  Water Act is used intelligently  and with the best interests of the:  user (taxpayer) being made the:  main consideration at all times..  In the West Howe Sound area.  . the problems are in two groups;,  and one is engineering. There is:  a difference of opinion over the  origin.of the bulk supply for the  . West Howe Sound areia. The Bul-  ^-pek-'-re^  ���dale Creek,  the Daytoi.-report  Chapman Creek.' The differences;  centre upon the supply of water  available from Langdale Creek.  Dayton considers it insufficient-  Bullock recommends it but with  auxiliary wells.  Bullock  thinks  Langdale and wells better than  any   other   alternative.   Dayton  thinks Chapman Creek with its  comparatively   huge  watershed  the answer to the whole area.  Both these men are experienced  engineers in the water field and  I believe sincere in their opinions.  Problem number two is the  organization of existing and potential water users in the bulk  supply area. This problem is  basically that of obtaining funds  to provide a bulk supply where  a large proportion of the existing users are not immediately  in need of water and are not  therefore eager to contribute as  organized units This resolves itself broadly into a situation  where approximately the .concentrated and organized haves  and an almost equal number of  spread out have nots effectively  create a stalemate.  To create an area water organization   in   the   West   Howe  (Continued on Page 12)  Bathtub coming to Fair?  Something new in the form of  a Mutt Show will be part of this  year's Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  opening Friday, August 11 and  continuing Saturday.  The Mutt show Saturday morning at 10.30 will have entries for  the longest and shortest tail or  legs, longest ears, shortest and  fattest dog, the smallest and  the best performer.  This should be an interesting  event with prizes being awarded  which will include some of the  Dr. Ballard animal food products.  Another unusual exhibit may  be the winning craft of Sunday's  Nanaimo - Vancouver bathtub  derby. The winner, Rusty Harrison, 21, of White Rock, is a  grandson of Ron Haig, Royal  Canadian   Legion   official   and  chairman of Gibsons and Area  Chamber of Commerce. Mr.  Haig is trying to get the winning  bathtub over to Gibsons for the  two days of the fair. Young Harrison is an employee in B.C.  Telephones' postal drafting department.  Gerry Clarke, secretary of the  fair, reports that there appears  to be a keen interest in, this  year's fair and it is quite likely  that with the excellent fruit weather this summer such exhibits  will be quite numerous.  There will also be Co-op dog  food donated as prizes and Co-op  flour for other events.  CAT ON LEASH FOUND  A grey cat with collar and  leash was found on the Sechelt  Queen ferry July 31.

A big decision  necessary  With two reports by engineers covering water possibilities in  the area from Port Mellon to Sechelt it would be reasonable to  maintain that Sunshine Coast Regional board directors would have  all that is required to go ahead with a scheme to supply the area  with water.  Such is not the case. The Bullock water rights branch report  prefers to use Langdale Creek as the basis of its water source  while the Dayton report, prepared for Gibsons village council prefers Chapman Creek.  The Bullock report outlines the use of Langdale Creek as the  base water supply for the area Langdale to Gower Point. It also  utilizes present local area water sources as ipart of the system.  The Dayton report regards Langdale Creek as a secondary supply and bases its contention on the use of Chapman Creek on a  much wider scale covering the area West Sechelt to Langdale. It  also utilizes local water sources as being part of the system.  The Langdale Creek project would take two years to put into  operation and the Chapman Creek project at least four years. Some  thinking by Regional District board members is'that increasing  population demands for water in the entire district would require  the greater of the two water projects, Chapman Creek, to satisfy  demands. This.point of view has created a doubt in the minds of  board directors as to which is the best scheme to consider.  During discussion on the problem at the last Regional District  meeting there was a suggestion dropped that perhaps the provincial government had some reason for adopting a hands off policy  as regards the use of Chapman Creek. As only top level govern  ment sources would have knowledge of this no answer was or is  available..  To help decide what would be best for the area board members  have decided to set, aside one evening in a committee of the whole  meeting to give the issue as wide discussion as possible before,  there is thought of pinning down any project.  With Langdale Creek being an uncertain water source in dry  periods and Chapman Creek being extremely expensive to develop  for the whole area's use, there fs reason for doubt as. to which  system to support.  Linguistic atrocities  When one hears atrocious sentences uttered on TV or radio and  sometimes appearing in respectable newspapers, even as respectable as the Coast News, one can only wonder how some of the millions of dollars used to educate the young were used.  Not only does sentence construction create wonderment but  the fact that periods creep into sentences is of no account to some  announcers who prattle on regardless of places where they could  at least pause half a second.  There is the prime example involving a proofreader, a woman  of precision and extreme propriety who checked a story written by  a reporter. He wrote as follows:  "Willie Brown, the boy who was burned in the West end by a  live wire..."  On the following day the reporter found on his desk a frigid  note, asking: "Which is the West end of a boy?"  It took only an instant to reply: "The end the son sets on, of  course."  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  B.C. Fir Company Ltd., Sechelt division, plans a $100,000  sawmill on the east side of  Porpoise Bay.  Dr. Hugh Inglis has extended  medical service to cover Sechelt and Halfmon Bay areas.  Sechelt Union Estates store  safe was broken into and some  $6,000 in cash, bonds and  jewelry was stolen.  Porpoise Bay lots were advertised from $160 up; Gibsons  $350 up and Gower Point $400  each.  Announcement was made that  the Summit General store was  going to be opened at West  Sechelt by Mr. Hartman and  his sister.  Comment was made by one  writer on the unruly behavior  of ch'ldren attending mo Vie  shows.  Official opening of the new  wharf at Gibsons was set for  August 16 with the Salvation  Army band taking part.  Changes to the Navigable  Waters Protection act. to cover  the effects of water pollution  created by cargo vessels is advocated) by Jack Davis, MP,  Coast-Capilano in a letter fo  Minister of Transport J. W.  Pickersgill. Argument present--  ed by Mr. Davis refers to (he  probabilities of another Torrey,  Canyon disaster in Canadian  waters similar to the oil problem this wreck created on the  coast of England and the s5nk-  ing of an oil barge off Pasley  Island,   near. Gibsons.  The   letter  from   Mr.   Davis  reads as follows:  Were Canada to be faced with  a Torrey Canyon incident, it  would be in bad shape: The  Navigable Waters Protection"  Act does not cover incidents  like this. It never has. So the  entire cost of cleaning up the  mess would fall on the should- -  ers  of the Canadian taxpayer.  The chances of a $17 million  Torrey Canyon incident in Canada are growing daily. Oil  tankers are getting bigger. And  more oil carriers are moving.,  along our coasts. It is only a"'  matter of time before a major  accident occurs. And when it  does we should be prepared to  deal with -it, not only in terms  of cleaning up the pollutioi:,  but also in terms of recovering our costs from those who  are primarily responsible for  hazards  of this kind.  We have already had an example of what can happen under these circumstances. When  a large oil barge sank in Howe  Sound in 1964 it caused a great  deal of damage to surrounding  property. An oil leak developed with the result that considerable wildlife was destroyed and  neighboring beaches were rendered unusable for several  seasons.  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOR  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  A reader wants to know if a  business can be forced to sell  an article at a given price as  offered in a trade catalogue.  Every contract must have  four parts: form, offer, acceptance and consideration or a  seal. Form simply refers to  whether the contract is in writing, by word of mouth, or understood. Offer���someone must  offer to do something, that is,  buy or sell an article of goods.  Acceptance���the person to whom  the offer was made must accept  it. Consideration is, for example, payment of money or  delivery of goods. A seal vs a  small red paper wafer stuck  to a written contract ��� which  does away with the necessity  for consideration.  To return to the question, it  implies that the offer may be  accepted by letter. A contract  can indeed be, and quite offen  is, entered into by a series of  letters through the mail, if the  letters properly set out the  four parts of the contract mentioned above. The offer that  appears in the trade catalogue  would not, however, in general  be regarded by our law as an  offer in the sense that this  term is used in law ��� as be:ng,  that is, one of the four essenr  tial parts of a contract. This  is not really an offer in the  eyes of the law ��� it is rather  an invitation to treat ��� or to  bargain. The reply to such a  catalogue listing would bo the  offer ��� which would have to  be accepted by the person who  proposes to sell the goods.  To be an effective offer, the  words used must be capable of  being applied to a specific per-  marine  The company which' owned  the barge, Barge Ten 'Company;,  of San Francisco, (at the tiihe  of floundering it was carrying  fuel oil from the Texaco Refinery in Anacortes, Washington to the Canadian Forest  Products Company's mill in  Port Mellon, B.C.), abandoned  the hulk. It threw up its hands  and left the Federal taxpayer.  in the position of having to  raise the barge in nearly 300  feet of water. .The resultant cost  was fantastic. The Auditor Genr  eral's report for 1965 said that  a total of $430,000 had to be  spent before the source of pollution was removed. The1 lives  of two divers were jeopardized  in the process. And despite all  this the Barge Ten Company  of San Francisco got off scott  free.  This incident in Howe Sound  should not be repeated; And  we have had sufficient warning. The $17 million Torrey  Canyon incident off the south  coast of England merely serves  to underline the need for our  Navigable Waters Protection  Act to be amended and amended immediately. Section 15 of  the Navigable Waters Protection Act should be amended,  perhaps, as follows:  "When any vessel, cargo, or  other thing is wrecked, sinking, lying ashore or grounded  in navigable waters and is not  an obstruction to navigation but  is causing water pollution, or  constitutes a danger to waterfowl or marine life,'or is detrimental to the enjoyment of  coastal property, the Minister  may order the owner of such  vessel, cargo or other thing to  begin forthwith and prosecute  diligently to completion, the removal or destruction thereof  and may, in case of default,  order such removal or destruc-  ution  POINT  OF LAW  u ' ���;  bf -/v [-Practicing. aLawyr  son who acts upon them and  thus accepts the offer.

When you plant a bed of annuals, use dwarf compact edging annuals at the front. For  example, Blue Kiss or Blue  Blaze ageratum, Bravo dian-  thus, Snow Carpet sweet .alys-  sum or Mrs. Clibran lobei:a  are all very effective cultivars  for this purpose./  If you want a distinctive, bed  of annuals, use dwarf types  like ageratum, fibrous rooted  begonias or Dark Opal swect:  basil, and dot the. bed ��� with  plants like the s'lyery-leaved  dfisty miller to give height and  interest.  .���, Another very effective combination is white petunias and,  here  and there,  plants  of  the  Dark Opal basil  or the taller-  growing deep red-leaved perilla.  Other planting arrangements  you might like to try are Salvia farinacea 'Blue Bedder'  and Pink Button zinnias, which  will provide color in the garden  all summer long as well as  abundant material for cut flowers. Deep blue petunias such  as Blue Magic and the golden  yellow French marigold-Sparky,  produce a very colorful effect.  Yellow and green leaved coleus  and blue ageratum will give  you a -'combination that will effectively brighten dull shady  corners.  In the rock garden use the  dwarf bedding types such as  sweet   alyssum,   ageratum,   lo  belia, pygmy marigolds, sanvi-  talia and fibrous-rooted begonias. The Floral Carpet  snapdragons and the new dwai-f  pompom zinnias are also excellent plants for this location.  However, avoid large and colorful petunias for the rockery as  they will overshadow the more  exquisite fine-textured alpines.  Instead, plant restrained types  such as the yellow Moonbeam  or Brass Band primroses, or  small blue ones such as Capri  and Sky Magic.  Tall and medium-sized zinnias grow well in the herbaceous border, where they will  hide bulb foilage and grow over  the oriental poppy leaves. Use  lots of the edging mound types,  too, at the front of the border  and tall annuals like cleome  and cosmos  at  the  back.

The   scream  of  600  mile   an  hour jets and the soft purr of a  plane that is almost 50 years old  will be part of the sights and  sounds of PNE '67.  The jets are the Royal Canadian Air Force's famed Golden  Centennaires ��� an offshoot of  the equally famous and now disbanded RCAF Golden Hawks  aerobatic team.  The Golden Centennaires will  put on dazzling aerobatic displays over Exhibition Park  grounds at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00  p.m. on August 25 and 26. The  group is giving 100 shows across  Canada to celebrate the country's Centennial.  The Centennaires have a var  ied format using five, six, seven  and nine Tudor jet aircraft during their displays.  The double bomb burst with  a solo vertical roll followed by  a cross over is one of the highlights of the show.  For those who like the oldies  there will be two AVRO 504K  military trainers that were first  used in 19-18. They will putt-putt  across the grounds on the same  two days at a dashing 80 miles  an hour.  There will also be a CF-1C4 operational fighter aircraft in the  displays.  The PNE with its "Century  Pacific" theme runs from August 19 to September 4.  Fire Alarm Procedure  To place a Fire Call at Gibsons OR Area covered  by the Gibsons Fire Protection District.

Letters to editor  Editor: I was delighted to see  Mr. Freeman's Canadian Red  Cross' letters on the front page  recently.  If one stops to think, our swim  ming classes on the coasts have  had instructors who were taught  Bronze medal standards under  Red Cross auspices.  All invalid equipment is available including wheel chairs,  bed pans, commodes, crutches  and other items .  Further if the public demands  it classes in home nursing, invalid cooking and sewing can be  had with Red Cross instructors.  In this area the blood clinic  is run by the Kinsmen club but  who finds the equipment?  Our good friends the volunteers work hard and collect  money for the excellent Red  Cross service all over the world  for those who are destitute, refugees, victims of war, pestilence and earthquake.  When a real campaign starts  here remember if yqu are not  undernourished help those who  are less fortunate and give generously.     ��� Dorothy Greene.   "'  When  did Armistice   Day  become Remembrance Day?  Until i931 what we know as  Remembrance Day ���November  11 ��� was called Armistice Day.  It is an annual statutory holiday in Canada and now honors  the memory of those who died  in the two world wars. From  1921 to 1931 Armistice Day. was  observed, together with Thanksgiving Day, on the Monday of  the week in which- November  11 fell. The symbol of Remembrance Day is the red poppy  of Flanders fields, replicas of  which are made by .disabled  war . veterans and distributed  by means of a tag. day organized by the Canadian Legion.

A few months  ago the Kinsmen discovered that  the Kiwanis club was in need  of a gavel with which to conduct  their meetings. The hat was  passed among Kinsmen members and the sum of l!0c was  raised to be donated to the Kiwanis as the beginning of a fund  to purchase-'a new gavel.}. The  Kiwanis seemed deeply appreciative of the gesture, but, feeling the same pinch that everyone else does, felt that they  were not able to carry on the  fund, but pointed out that a gavel, suitably engraved as being  presented by the Kinsmen,  would be warmly treasured.

Recreation  mess noted  Until a clear-cut policy on  recreation is established by governmental departments the Sunshine Coast Regional board of  trustees will refrain from giving consideration to recreation  matters in this area.  The only consideration of the  subject possible until that time  would be if some area presented the board with a recreation  program. Then the board would  have to tackle the request.  Reason for leaving the recreation field alone is that three  governmental departments are  involved in recreation and all  three are working in diverse directions.  As a result of a letter from  one of the departments, that of  municipal affairs, the board decided to inform the department  that its letter on recreation will  be tabled until such time as  there is a firm policy laid down  by the senior government. The  board asks the government to  state its policy of financing and  the level of government responsible. The board also asks for a  definition of parks.

Last Saturday, Eric Huskin of  Berkeley, California^ now a summer resident of Roberts Creek,  came in to express his appreciation of the Savary Island articles written by Eric Thomson,  a director and contributor to  this paper.  Born in Calgary .'-Mr. Huskin  received his early education in  that city and later took, his de*  greeas a chemical engineer in  Vancouver. Moving across the  line he obtained ., his master's \  degree at the University of Mi  chigan and then on to California But the'tug of Canada's west  coast was ever present and after exploring the possibilities of  Vancouver Island for a spot in  which to settle down when retirement, came, the Huskiris finally located *..at Roberts Creek  and dunng their five weeks vacation are taking the first step  in re conditioning their cottage  for permanent occupancy: Eric's  only regret is they are just too  busy to take enough tihie out  for fishing.V but that, he says,  will come when they finally  shake the dust of Berkeley and  , return to these parts for keeps.

Sunshine Coast Highway ��� Ph.  886-2808  Plan No.  11630  (copyright  No. 117093)  The population "explosion"  of many of our rapidly growing  towns and cities make duplex  housing a desirable method of  not only coping with the housing problem, but also providing  revenue for the owner.  Plan No. 11630 is a duplex  that has much to recommend  it to the prospective owner/  builder or contractor builder.  Each unit has 1026 square feet  in area, which makes it possible for rooms to be larger  than is usual in duplex housing.  Complete privacy in- the sleeping area is ensured by situating the two bedrooms at the  back of the house, ack to back  fireplaces in the living rooms  are economically installed. The  kitchens are especially large,  with lots of cupboard and storage space, and space for dining. ���  One side of the duplex features a den or third bedroom,  or a small dining room if desired, while the other adapts  the same space for storage,  and access to the full basement.  Each bathroom has a large  vanity, broom, and linen closets  Private entries located on' the  extreme corners of the build-  nig, make coming and going  completely private. The exterior appearance is simple  with clean lines, featuring a  semi flat roof.  This duplex could be built  economically, and provide excellent revenue possibilities in  any area.  It is designed to the standards of the National Building  Code of Canada, for N.H.A. or  conventional mortgage as desired. Other duplexes are featured, along with a good selection of two and three bedroom  homes, and fourplex units in  book,   which   can  be   obtained  our Select Home Dssigixs Plan  by sending 85c in coin or money  order to the Building Centre  (B.C.)

And it  should be made before the, next  expensive incident occurs  rather than after we run into  a situation as developed " in  Howe Sound, B.C., in 1964 and  off the south coast of England  earlier this year.���Jack Davis,  M.P.    :  The (report of the auditor-  general covering the cost of  salvaging the barge which sank  off Pasley Island reads as follows:  On March 5, 1964 a barge in  tow with a cargo of oil sank  in over 200 feet of. water off  Pasley Island in Howe Sound,  B.C. Leaking oil fouled the  beaches in the area. After the  charterer had endeavored to  contain the pollution and clear  the surface of the sea, he.notified the department of transport that he was abandoning the  vessel because the risk of rupturing the hull during any attempt at salvage and the cost  ��� of salvage were too great to  contemplate.  The oiHaden barge remained a serious threat to waterfowl, marine life and coastal  property and its removal was  regarded as essential by the  department. As the wreck was  not a menace to navigation,  there was no legislation under  which the private interests involved could be held responsible for its removal or for  costs if removal were undertaken by the Crown. Acordihg-  ly, the department engaged  salvage experts to investigate  and report on the best means  of dealing with the sunken  barge.  Salvage operations commenced in June 1964 under a no  cure, no pay contract. After  the contractor's costs had exceeded the contract price, with  little progress : having been  made, : he indicated that he  wished to withdraw from the  undertaking and minimize his  losses. This led to treasury  board authority 7 to negotiate  with the same contractor to  proceed on an incurred cost  basis.  In October 1964 the barge  was finally raised and removed to Vancouver, where it was  sold for $12,752 by Crown Assets Disposal corporation'. The  remaining oil was found to  have been so badly 'contaminated by sea water that it was  valueless. Salvage costs pn'd  to the end of the year amounted to $265,000. The total expense  of the operation is expected to  be at least $430,000.  We understand that consideration- is being given to recommending legislation to place'financial responsibility on the  owners for the removal of a  wreck or its cargo, in circumstances such as the above.  news���  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  Make a Mini part of your  summer scene.. .

Rev. A. Crewe performed the  ���marriage service.  '         The bride was given in marriage by her uncle, Mr. Joe Er-  lendson. .  The fair-haired bride wore a  charming   gown   of  white  lace  styled   with   pettipoint   sleeves.  The fitted bodice was enriched .  with   rhinestones   and  the 7 lace  fell   in   tiers,   each   tier   being ;  caught in a scallop with rhinestones. The shoulder length veil  fell softly from a crown of aurora toorealis. Her only jewelry  was   a   necklace   of   cultured  pearJs  with matching earrings,  the gift of the groom.  . Red  roses  and  white   carna- /  tions formed her  cascade  bouquet.  There were five attendants,  Eloise deLong, matron of honor  and Donna Albrams, Cathie Morrison, Linda Wood, cousin of the  bride and Leslie Anderson as  bridesmaids.  All attendants wore floor  length shift dresses of ice blue  lace over taffeta styled with  mussel sleeves. Their headdress- .  es were tiaras with aurora bor-  ealis teardrops. They carried fan  shaped blue tulle bouquets with  white carnations.  Best man was John Baird  while Danny Watson, brother of  the groom, Ray Lewis, Albert  Carter and John Barners of Gib  sons acted' as ushers. The  groom's brother Johnny and nephew Buddy Bealy were door  boys at the church.  Following the wedding, a reception was held in the Cumberland Recreation Hall where  the bridal party with the parents received the guests in front  of .a prettily decorated arch.  Mrs. Ferguson chose for her  daughter's wedding a beige lace  dress with beige accessories and  a contrasting hat while the  groom's mother Mrs. Mima Watson wore a two piece brocaded  suit with pink hat and white accessories. Both mothers wore  corsages of carnations. Mr. Henry Watson acted as master of  ceremonies and called upon Mr.  Bill Nairn, of Port Alberni, to  say grace. The toast to the bride  was given by her uncle Mr.  Magnus Erlendson and ably responded to by the groom. Mr.  John Baird toasted the bridesmaids. Soloists a.t the reception  were Mr. Jack Bennie and Mr.  Tom Shilton. The bride's table  was covered with a hand crocheted table cloth loaned by  Mrs. Barbara Luzyzyn and was  centred with a three tiered wedding cake embedded in white  tulle.  Leaving on a honeymoon to be  spent in California, Mrs. Watson  donned a two piece blue and  white checked suit with an off  the face sailor hat and accessories of white. Red carnations  formed her corsage. Mr. and  Mrs. J. Watson will take up residence in Courtenay.  Beauty  hints  TASELLA SH0PPE  FOR YOUR YARDGOODS ��� Sechelt  Ph. 885-9331  By LYNN CARTER  Q. Any suggestions for a  homemade hair-dressing liquid?  A. Try this one: Cut two  lemons into slices, drop into a  pan, and add just enough water  to cover the lemons. Boil until  the thickness of the water indicates that all the lemon juice  has been extracted, then strain,  and use the remaining juice  and water mixture as your hair  dressing.  Q. Do you have any tip for  adding naturalness to my makeup jobs?  A. After treating yourself to  a good soapsuds facial, apply  your makeup just before you  jump into your hot-tub bath.  The steam from the bath will  impart an attractive, dewy look  to you facial artwork.  Q. What is a good and effective homemade hand lotion?  A. Equal parts of glycerin  and camphor does a good job.  Etiquet    '<"  By ROBERTA LEE  Q. Someone has told me it's  not good manners to use the  handkerchief while at the dinner table.  Is  this true?  A. This is not so much a  matter of good manners as of  necessity. Certainly, if the handkerchief is necessary, use it ���  but do so as inconspicuously  and as  quietly  as  possible.  Q. Is it proper to typewrite  the names on place cards for a  wedding dinner?  A. No. The names should be  handwritten in ink. If legibility  is a problem with you, you may  hand-print  the   names.  Q. When a man who doesn't  smoke takes out a girl who  does, is he supposed always to  help her light up when she takes  out a cigarette? ���  A. It would probably look  more thoughtful and courteous  if.he made a practice of carrying a book of matches with him  on these dates, and when she  takes out a cigarette light it  for her. Or, even if he doesn't  have matches with him, he can  use one of hers.  Coast News,. Aug. 3, 1967.       9  Q. Is it all right, if more convenient, to mail out the marriage announcements a few  days before the wedding itself?  A. No ��� and for the simple  and logical ^reason that the  couple is not really married before the wedding has taken  place. These announcements  are properly mailed out immediately after the ceremony.  JOLLY ROGER  INN  for fine  CUISINE  come to  Secret Cove  RESERVATIONS  885-9998  We are Pleased  to Announce .

The brothers,  Francoise and Louis Joseph,  belonged to a prominent family  of Quebec fur traders who explored deep into the continent.  In 1739, Francois led the expedition which discovered the  Saskatchewan River. In 1742,  with Joseph, he started exploring the country to the southwest, and eventually they  reached the foothills of the  Rockies. The brothers found  that the Indians to the south  had numerous horses, mules  and asses, which had descended from the first horses !.n-  troduced by the Spaniards. The  natives  had  not  developed the  wheel,  and their only previous  beast  of burden had been  the  dog.  They     eagerly     acquired .  horses from the Spaniards and  from each  other,  through  capture     or     trading,  and helped  spread them    throughout    the  continent.     The    possession of  horses brought about an entirely new way of life for the In��  dians.  Hunters  could surround  and chase down the buffalo on  which they depended for food,  clothing  and shelter.  Tiresome  foot   journeys   could  be   made  rapidly   on     horseback,      and  heavy loads carried easily with  the     travois,     a  sort  of sled.  Horses also gave them greater  speed and mobility in warfare.  (This historical feature is one  of a series which readers may  wish to clip and save.)  Tidal survey along coast  Warping her way in an easy-  as-she-goes manner alongside  Gibsons wharf, Canadian Nayal  Auxiliary Vessel (CNAV) Lay-  more paid an overnight visit recently. Her mission according  to Commanding Officer Capt. J.  Maloney, RON, as an ocean research vessel, was the making  of a tidal survey along the Sunshine Coast as far as Lund. This  is but one of the varied assignments of this naval auxiliary  craft which in some respects  could be likened to the mythical  USN Reluctant in the play Mr.  Roberts, referred to by its crew  as This Bucket, which operated  in the back areas of the Pacific  on a regular run characterized  in the play as from Tedium to  Apathy and back, about five  days each way.  Apart from its appearance as  a U.S. Navy cargo ship, the Lay-  more was in fact a former World  War 2 American Auxiliary craft  intended for service in the South  Seas and acquired by the Canadian Navy. Here the similarity  to U.S.N. Reluctant ends, as she  is a happy ship, well manned by  personnel from her home base,  Esquimau.  Serving with Capt. Maloney  are the three mates, W. Frame,  1st, N. Vanderuyt, 2nd and J.  Marsh, formerly of the Royal  Navy, 3rd. She is a sturdy craft  of 559 ton burthen, equipped  with a miscellany of gear used  in oceanic research, complete  with a laboratory. At the conclusion of this five-day mission,  she will return to Esquimalt to  report for the next odd job  along the coast.  Roberts Creek News  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Prior to her marriage to Mr.  Ron Ward, Miss Ruth Phare  was guest of honor at a miscellaneous shower given by  Mrs. M. Danroth. Invited  guests included Mesdanies A.  Phare, W. Loitz, V. Walter, I.  C. McLean, P. Davies, V.  L'Estrange and B. Parker;  Misses Bonnie Macfarlane, E.  Charman, A. Andreeff and  Susan Phare.

COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  Department of Fisheries  Sports Fish Bulletin  Week Ending July 23  Lower Sunshine Coast waters  from Roberts Creek to Gower  Point held coho last week, and  trollers, strip-casters and mooch-  ers met with fair success on a  number of occasions. Surveys in  the area Sunday morning found  several boats with coho aboard.  Gower Point waters also gave  up a number of chinooks to 25  lbs. during the week.  Salmon Rock, Worlcomtoe Island and Cape Roger Curtis  came up with mixed catches of  coho and chinooks. A few early  pinks were taken between Cowans and Gower Points. Weights  ranged from V& to 5 lbs. Horseshoe Bay last week produced a  few coho and several chinooks  to 18 lbs.  This week should have seen  the peak of the chinook run in  upper Howe Sound but reports  last week mentioned only a few  chinooks from the Porteau area  and only one noteworthy fish of  IW2. lbs. from Britannia.  At Horseshoe Bay, anglers are  asked to' stop at an orange colored box and fill in a brief questionnaire regardless of their success afloat. It won't take a minute and we would very much appreciate the information.  Coho-ing seems to have picked up all along the Sunshine  Coast. Maybe this is where the  Island fish have gone. Fearney  Point and nearby Cape Cock-  burn waters provided many limits and near-limits during the  week as did the Egmont area  and the southern end of Las-  queti Island. Biggest coho seen  during boat checks was a SYz  pounder.  The main sport fleet on the  weekend concentrated around  Pender Harbour. Sechelt Inlet,  Bargain Harbour and Secret  Cove saw little action salmon-  wise and relatively little effort  compared to Pender Harbour.  Moochers fishing chinook  holes adjacent to Pender Harbour were stricely after heavy  chinooks so failed to click on  the coho, although there was  evidence of these fish around.  af convention  Enthusiastic approval was registered by the local congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses who  attended a four-day: district convention at Queens Park Stadium  in New Westminster. Memlbers  reported a larger than expected  attendance taxed the facilities  of the Royal City's stadium making it one of the largest of the  coast-to-coast series of Witness  conventions.  A. W. McNamara, special  Watchtower representative from  Toronto, spoke to 7,855 attentive  delegates Sunday on Rescuing  a Great Crowd of Mankind out  of Armageddon. By insisting on  their national sovereignty, he  said, the nations of the world  are challenging God's sovereignty over the earth.  Absolute refusal of blood  transfusions for Jehovah's Witnesses and their families was^  also reaffirmed by MacNamara  who said that with few notable  exceptions the medical association treat God's law as a myth  or as no longer having force.  They put the life of imperfect  men above the law of God.  Highlights of the four-day meet  included a swimming-pool baptism of 109 new ministers, scriptural dramas with Bible characters coming to life in costumes of the historical period,  and the release of new textbooks for the Witnesses' ministry.  The 1,400 volunteers worked  tirelessly throughout the four  days to look after the Witnesses  every need. 15,000 hot. meals  were prepared on site for the  delegates.  More than four out of five  obese persons may be diabetics,  and when obese diabetics lose  exicess weight they may no  logger ,be diabetic, researchers  were told at a conference on  diabetes and obesity held by  New York City's Acadcni3' of  Sciences and reported in MD  of Canada.  Dr. W. J. __.'��� Butterfield, professor of medicine at Guy's  Hospital medical school in London, England, told the conferees  that the human body's fat pad  of adipose tissue competes with  muscle tissue for insulin. In  the obese adult diabetic the  fat pad tends to win: it increases fatness and because  muscle tissue does not metabolize insulin effectively the insulin level in the blood rises.  Similar studies with noridia-  betics showed that insulin clearance into 'muscle tissue diminished progressively as obesity increased.

The close to 100 persons at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council  concert Saturday evening in Elphinstone school auditorium  were treated to excellent madrigal singing and other entertainment which could be termed  controversial.  The first five numbers involved lute and vocal works of the  15th and 16th centuries and the  fine voices of Corlynn Hannay,  Marg Neil, Doreen Oke, Lloyd  Burritt and the lute of Ray  Nurse left little to be desired.  All were from the UBC music  department. The voice of Miss  Hannay delighted particularly,  being refreshing because of its  lack of today's type of professionalism. The remainder of the  vocal group, equally proficient,  were the highlight of the evening.  Section two provided Mel Bowker a chance to display his piano technique in a J. S. Bach  Partita and Moszkowski's Caprice Espagnol. In the Bach  number he showed his command  of the piano but in the 'Caprice  he really showed his versatility  and left no doubt he could translate the printed note into living  music. At times one could almost hear a choir of mandolins.  Section three provided music  by Schubert and Cyril Scott.  Schubert's Whither sung by  Mrs. Peggy Burritt saw Mr.  Bowker accompanying. Schubert  is usually melodic and Mrs. Burritt was successful, yet a trifle  heavy for this type of song. Mrs.  Lucille Mueller and Mrs. Burritt sang an unfamiliar aria from  Madame Butterfly, the Every  Flower duet, -quite  acceptably.  Following the intermission  with Cortland Hultberg directing, a choir containing singers  already   mentioned   and   Susan-  Dunham, George Ross, Mr. Bowker and Barry Liesh, sang Lloyd  Burritt's 1967 opus, Kyrie, in its  premiere performance. It was  commissioned by the Berkshire  Music Festival at Tanglewood,  Mass. Like all works heard for  the first time it would be better  to wear a bit on listening ears  before proper judgment can be  formed. It did have its moments  and it could stand up as church  music. It may require polishing  up.  The National Film Board's Op  Visuals, a multi-screen projection with Doug Elittk at the controls, can be described as unique but anything else to say  about it would contain elements  of controversy. The colored geometries were interesting but  whether the entire performance  heightens the status of the NFB  might produce argument.  The Lloyd Burritt song cycle  Landscapes, of eastern U.S.  coastal area, with Miss Hannay  and Miss Oke aided(?) by the  voices of the same pair reproduced from tape found an audience somewhat satiated by the  previous Op Visuals less inclined to accept the unusual ��� as  these Landscapes indisputably  were. Tiring of the repetitious  noises unassociated with the visual pictures one . normally has  of countryside, the applause  dwindled sharply towards the  end.  But ��� the situation was saved  with the return of the choristers  to close the program with Hal-  sey Stevens Weep O Mine Eyes  and four of the Hindemith Six  Chansons with Mr. Hultberg directing. They dispersed the  nightmarish effect of previous  oddities and returned to music  that sooths the savage breast.  - F.C.  Continued strong beef prices  and lower lettuce, and tomato  prices are forecast for August  by economists in the Canada department of Agriculture. Here  are the details of their food outlook for the monlth:  EGGS: Egg prices have  strengthened from a weak position and further small increases  are likely as supplies decrease  seasonally.  1 TURKEY: The 1967 heavy turkey crop has started to market  and will be equal to last year.  Price outlook is slightly weaker  than a year ago. Broiler turkey  marketings will be reduced, but  storage stocks are larger.  CHICKEN:    Broiler    chicken  marketings will be up both seasonally and from last year. Little   price   change   is   expected  from current level.  PORK: Supplies continue plentiful and no immediate changes  in prices are expected.  BEEF: Under heavy seasonal  demand, prices will continue  strong at current levels.  STONE FRUIT: Peaches and  plums are expected to show  smaller  crops  than last  year,  Coast News, August 3, 1967.  with firm prices.  APPLES: Early varieties will  be available with general crop  prospects equal to or better than  a year ago.  VEGETABLES: Lettuce, and  tomato prices are expected to  ease from present high levels as  local supplies become more  plentiful.  ��� Mr and Mrs. Lyle Schwabe, the new proprietors of Danny's have just completed the second phase of the complete renovation of this popular Sunshine  Coast Eating place and Motel.

There is no immediate problem in the Sechelt area, but  there is the potential danger of  the collapse of the supply system. If Sechelt village makes a  positive move towards taking  over the utility then they will  obtain professional engineering  advice, the system will be put  in good shape and it is presumed that the area will benefilt by  the transfer from private to public ownership. If the village does  not act then it may be advisable for the Regional District to  step in.  Conflicting engineering recommendations should be resolved. This is particularly necessary as in one recommendation  Chapman Creek forms the  source for both areas, and this  would have an obvious effect on  board policies.  To make the best use of the  available legislation consideration should be given to forming  a Specified Area or Areas. The  exact method of forming the  area will depend upon the circumstances and the amount of  money involved.  Provisionally it would seem  that a vote would have to be put  to the people within a defined  area asking them if they wish  ed to form a Specified Area for  the purpose of obtaining a bulk  water supply and also, if known  at the time and also desired, the  amount of money required could  be included. This must be in the  form of a bylaw and it seems at  present that this must be voted  upon. It is not possible under the  amended act to advertise, and  vote if 10% of the taxpayers require it as was done in Comox.  If this policy is to be followed.  then it is suggested that action  should take place to provide for  referendums to be held at this  year's election in December. It  is not practicable or economical  to hold separate referendums  at other times if it can be avoided.  I would suggest, he commented at the end of his report, that  the board form a committee of  the whole to discuss this, matter  and bring forward recommendations for consideration at the  next meeting.  After debating the report the  board decided to meet shortly  as a committee of the whole and  to hear Martin Dayton explain  his preferring Chapman Creek  over Langdale Creek for the  area water supply.
