Report outlines  zoning for region  An industrial zone south of Port Mellon and urbanization  from Langdale to Roberts Creek are suggested, in a preliminary  . planning report prepared for the Sunshine Coast Regional District  board of trustees. The report was presented to the board last  Friday night at a regular meeting of the trustees in the board's  Davis Bay office.  The report was prepared by J. Barford, the regional board's  planner who during this summer set up for the directors a mapping ,of the* area in its various aspects. He describes it as a preliminary report only.  The report covers the physical setting, population, subdivision  and real estate ' activity, the economy and transportation. Most  of the sections of the report are covered in this issue but sections on recreation and tourism and -the retirement angle of the  economy, aflso the transportation section have been left over until  nextf week.  The final section of the report covers observations made as  a result of the work entailed in preparing it. These observations  follow:       ;  Director Wolverton,. discussing    economy, activity systems, land  the rep^rrin^ufr^^Ketnerthe -use, and^services irfust'be maiie  Two fined  over fires  Two persons were fined $25  and costs in police court for  starting a fire during a closed  season without obtaining a permit. They were Mrs. Janet  Thornington and Mrs. Lorraine  Johnston of Granthams. Both  fires resulted in calls being  . turned in for Gibsons Volunteer  Fire department help in putting  them out.  Three. brush fires last week  were on North Road beyond the  B.C. Telephone office and the  second behind Elphinstone Secondary school when fire started,  at a point where some students  had been eating their lunch and  smoking cigarets The third was  close to Fred Feeney's home on  Sargent road.'  So far there have been eight  brush fires in the area.  Kiwanis hosts  Ed Fiedler, 47, Gibsons contractor, was found dead in his  oyerturned station wagon Sunday morning at the Gower Point  ; road end of Pratt road. His car  1 failed to make the first turn off  Ifratt road.'  ���Mr. Fiedler was last seen  about 8:30 p.m. Saturday evening in the vicinity of School  voad and the highway. A woman  ��� walking past the corner spotted  the overturned car in. the bush  and notified a neighbor who investigated at about 8 o'clock  Sunday morning and notified the  RCMP.  \ The car apparently went over  a pile of slash logs, struck trees,  flipped over and finished up on  its side. ��  A jury viewed the body Monday night then, it was released  for burial Wednesday. The inquest will take place Friday  evening, Oct. 13.  Bowen  Friday night's meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District board at Davis Bay was informed by letter from Hon. Mrs.  Isabel Dawson that the issue  of Bowen Island's  inclusion in  the Sunshine Coast Regional  district would be settled to the  ...satisfaction of the board. The  board does not favor taking  Bowen Island in its region.  -Debate on the possibility of  occupying office space in the  proposed school board administration building resulted in the  Mr. Fiedler, prominent in  Royal Canadian Legion affairs,  was president of the Gibsons  branch in 1956 and again in 1965.  He was also a member of the  Kiwanis club.  The funeral took place Wednesday at 2:30 from the Harvey  Funeral Home family chapel  with Rev. H. Kelly officiating.  Cremation followed.  ; He leaves his wife Ivy, sons  Ken of Gibsons and Ted in the  Royal Canadian Navy and three  daughters', Mrs. Dianne McFad-  den, Kamloops, Mrs. S. Jay of  Gibsons, and Deborah at home  also two grandchildren, Terri  and Allan.

North Road people wanted some wells dug now and the  board argument was that if  these wells proved to be dry  holes it would be a waste of  time.and.money. Specified area  surveys would have to be paid  for by the area asking for the  survey.   ; ;  A Selma Park complaint that  at times it suffered insufficient  water pressure was referred to  area wanted fast quantity progress or quality progress. Directors favored quality progress.  Director 7 Wolverton maintained  this area would become the recreation playground i for a vast  area of; the northwest part of  the northern continent and that  we should be prepared to plan  it that; way.  It was generally accepted that;  the cost of education was a DiS  factor in the area and that there  was a brain drain. Unless some  way is found to keep the younger people here they would leave  and probably come back in their  old age.  The   Barford   report   conclusions follow:  During the past four months  we have undertaken a series of  preliminary steps towards the  establishment of planning on a  sound basis in 7 the Sunshine  Coast Regional District. We  have made reconnaisance surveys and the first estimate of  existing conditions and trends.  From this it has been possible  to outline the District's principal problems and needs.  The next step is to assess  more fully the current situation  and to prepare a set of interim  planning controls. This will complete the first stage of the planning program.  The second stage is to formulate a series of goals and objectives to act as the guidelines  to future planning. What is the  most suitable form for development to take in the light of available resources and potential?  Should the District emphasize  secondary manufacturing or recreation? Should the rural atmosphere be preserved at the  expense of growth?    :  Progress will inevitably involve some sort of change; if  the potential of the District is  developed to any great extent,  it will most likely alter present  living patterns. Planning, while  supporting regional development  can help to strike a balance between the old and the new.  Once these policy considerations  have been made, we enter the  third stage. More detailed examinations   of   population,, the  More detailed plan surveys,  such as the waterfront plan and  the extensive assessment of recreation I suggested above should  be completed. And from these,  the formulation of a comprehensive regional plan based on an  overall regional concept, with  the necessary controls and  stages incorporated to  achieve  it.  ������."-v;./.;--;'7'7.-.r'v'  *  I believe the district must limit future residential development. The difficulties of providing an adequate level of domestic services are already immense, and the ability to provide them will never catch up  with demand unless growth is  controlled. Developers could be  required to share in the provision of the necessary services,  and their possible threat of bypassing the area would be a  hollow one.  Recreation is, I think, the key  to the future, and, because of  this, I have attempted to discuss it more fully. One point I  did not develop, however, was  the attraction of pleasure boat  (Continued on Page 12)  MOTHER DIES  Mrs. Bertha Agnes Kallaway,  82, mother of Mrs. Irene Sykev  of Gibsons, died Sept. 25. T".e  funeral service was held at  Roselawn Funeral Chapel Wed.,  Sept. 27 with Rev. Jl R. Davies  officiating. Mr. and Mrs Sykes  were in Vancouver to attend  the funeral.  BUSINESS CHANGES HANDS  Mrs. Christine Johnston of  Chris's Jewelers, Sechelt, announces the sale of the business  to Mr. L. Fox, a watchmaker  and jeweler from Smithers, B.C.

Accompanying the '��� visitors  was Art Felton, Lieut.-Governor  of the Kiwanis Pacific Northwest Division No. 2. Don Douglas, president of the Gibsons  group, welcomed the guests.  The feature of the evening was  the premiere showing of a film  produced by P. C. Wilson, the  club's secretary, on the Sunshine Coast. This film in color  covers the area from Langdale  to Pender Harbour and presented a colorful half hour along  the Sunshine Coast Highway. It  will be forwarded to the Kiwanis  Club at Daytonview, Ohio, members of this club having adopted the local organization for the  balance of the Centennial year.  This came about as a result of  a visit this summer from two of  the Daytonview Kiwanians vacationing in this area.  Graduates  HI-C BAKE SALE  Gibsons Hi-C thank those who  helped, make the bake sale succeed. The proceeds from this  sale go towards the support of  a 13 year old Korean foster child  Young Kil. A special thanks  goes to members of the Co-op  store staff for their, assistance.  Marion Louise Vaughan of  Egmont, valedictorian at Pender Harbour Secondary school  graduation Saturday night, received the Sechelt Teachers'  Association bursary and the  Pender Harbour Legion bursary.  Janet Webb was presented  with the Pender Harbour Legion  Auxiliary bursary and Bud Klein  the Order of the Eastern Star  bursary. Bud Klein and Janet  Weibb shared the Pender Harbour PTA bursary.  Guests were served coffee  and cookies made by the boys'  cooking class. Gordon Johnston,  district supervisor and W. P.  Malcolm, school trustee attended the ceremonies. Mr. Johnston  addressed the graduates.  TENDERS OPENED  Tenders were opened by the  school board for the Langdale  school activity room. The low  tender submitted by Calla Brothers Cement Contractors Ltd.  amounted to $66,482. which was  17.66 percent higher than the  estimate of $56,500.  space instead of taking part in  any construction costs. Chair-  ' man Norman Watson argued the  regional' board was too young  to afford such costs.  More speed from government  sources will be sought over establishment of garbage dumps.  - .Officials on one hand push antipollution measures and on the  other delay the setting up of  garbage dumps. The complaint  arose over the delay in getting  the Pender Harbour dump legalized.  TDiscussion on garbage collection revealed a flat charge  would be made against all properties as such collection would  add to the value of all property,  vacant or built on.  Syd Walter, Sechelt garbage  collector complained he was unable to carry out the board desires on ditching and backfilling at the dump due to the rates  charged. The board waived this  part of his operation, maintaining it would straighten itself out  when the garbage bylaw had  become operative after the  plebiscite.  Gower Point water committee  has asked for technical details  on Specified Service area. North  and Reid road areas are also  seeking some immediate help in  the  form  of wells.  The board  G  complained to the board by  written statement about surveyors ; invading his property apparently for highway purposes  and running the survey line  through his house. Mr. Ruggles  said he had no intention of letting anyone survey his proper-  ' ty- '���������-..������'  The board maintained it had  no power in the matter and suggested he write the local member of the legislature. Mr. Ruggles argued there were at present two other road allowances  available   and   added   that   he  could  not   see   the  department  putting  a   road  allowance  through    Gibsons    water    area  which lies beyond his property.  The Regional board will make  enquiries    as    to    where    the  through road from North road  may be located, but in the meantime  passing  the  matter  over  to the regional technical planning committee for advice.  Director Gilker brought up the  matter of Phil Lawrence having  left the district leaving the area  without a recreation official.  The area recreation committee  hoped to be able to carry on  but if no successor is appointed  it would disband. It was moved  that the board ask recreation  officials to visit the area Nov.  15 and offer a solution.  Board seeks health official  At Monday's  meeting of the  Union Board of Health in the  G'bsons Health office, it was  decided to write the minister of  health outlining the need for a  resident health officer in Gibsons area.  This has been a bone of contention by municipal councils,  chambers of commerce and  others who felt that work which  involved the attention of a  health officer was slowed up  under the present two days a  week system.  A notice of motion for the  next meeting of the board was  passed which would open the  way for the Regional District  board to have a representative  on the Union health board.  Peter   Wilson,   school   board  secretary-treasurer appeared to  speak for a better arrangement  in.' connection with the dental  clinics for the area as arranged  by the board of health for school  purposes.  A JAPANESE  FILM  At the invitation of the women  of St. John's United Church, Wilson Creek, the women of Gibsons United Church will join  the Wilson Creek group next  Tuesday when a film loaned by  the Japanese Consul will be  shown. Mrs. J. DeKleer, president of the St. John's United  group will be hostess.  Pumpkins are  quite large  This week's display of fruits  and vegetables shows a seventeen ounce apple at the top.  a one-and-a-half pound pear  next, a 100 lb pumpkin and a  15^ lb. cabbage with a 30 lb.  pumpkin.  The apple is displayed by Nelson Winegarden who obtained' it  from Mr. G. C. Hamilton of Reid  road.  The pear came from the trees  on the Ed. Thomson orchard  on South Fletcher road. As an  employee of the Coast News he  is not eligible for the $5 cash,  prize for the most unusual exhibit.  The 100 lb. pumpkin came  from the garden of Mr. J. Ris-  bey, West Sechelt.  The cabbage and pumpkin  were grown by J. N. Marleau  of Langdale.  There is something off color  in the tomato news his week  at Roberts Creek. A plant, home  grown from seed, has produced  fruit which is round, symmetrical and a glowing golden yellow color. In flavor it tends to  be just slightly more delicate  than its red sister. Although  somewhat on the small side, it  is without flaw or blemish, and  the plant produces as many tomatoes as the ordinary ''ind. Coast News,  Oct.  5,  1967.  A salute to Suomi!  Serving the Mt.

Things GROW here  If there is one thing the Coast News vegetable competition has  produced it is to bring out the point that things do grow exceptionally well in this part of British Columbia.  The Sunshine Coast from Langdale to West Sechelt produces exceptional growth. There is still extant the famous strawberry story  which details the fact that one jam producer favored the strawberries grown in this area and placed a premium on their value. However a labor problem resulted in this phase of growth becoming a  dead issue.  We are living in the shade of a mountain which as it recedes  from the sea slowly rises forming numerous benches on which  people can live without having t oclimb precipitous hills. This  countryside has an eastern and southern exposure, sheltered from  the north and west. Damaging frost is rare.  iSomewhere, somehow, somebody is going to catch on to the  idea that fruit can be grown here and go into it in a big way. What  is available from small holdings? There are apples, pears, peaches,  plums of many varieties, apricots possibly, various nut trees and  berry crops that are copious in production including the wild ravaging blackberry or bramble berry, whichever you desire to call it.  Those blackberries would really find a prairie market if they  could be cultivated and shipped quickly. We now have rapid transportation and berries picked within an hour can be on Vancouver  store counters within two or three hours ��� a far different situation than the area existed under before the ferry system started.  It is going to create work for a good many people at crop time; It  is a subject that should be explored.  Not a borderline case  The Vancouver hippie paper under a temporary ban is definitely not the sort of publication that should be allowed to have a  circulation in an age group where it can be damaging. '  With this most people can agree. Perhaps, too, they will agree  with the hippies that there are plenty of other publications which  are available to youngsters which should also come under a ban.  These other publications are not sold at points where juveniles  cannot help but congregate.  It is on this basis that one should take a good look at what the  so-called hippie organization is striving to do. They are not turning  out smut and suggestive items for their own type of pleasure. What  the backers of the paper are doing is sheltering under present laws  to carry out, if they can get away with it, someone else's instructions.        . . ���      -      ;        f  Obscenity is something that changes from time to time in the  public mind. Back in the 20s when some books dared to peek on  the other side of the moral fence, Boston was a famous place for  censorship. Today Vancouver is the centre of the stage with a  publication that is testing the law to its utmost limit. The public,  we suspect, has a pretty good idea where the moral line should  be drawn.  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.  Following a recent article on  the question of attempting to  obtain the assistance of. the  police authorities in seizing a  car unpaid for, a number of  letters have been received concerning when it is lawful to use  force to effect seizures, repel  trespasses,  Etc.  It is almost never lawful to  use force under our law. Force  may be used to prevent the  commission of certain crimes  or in some cases to protect  property or repel trespassers.  Force cannot be used to seize  goods unpaid for, even if the  seizure is perfectly lawful and  pursuant to the terms of a  chattel mortgage or conditional  sale agreement. A private  bailiff has no more powers than  anyone else. (We recommend,  however, that they be employed to seize such goods as they  are experts at bluffing.)  POINT  OF LAW  fcy ~/t [-'racticinf eLawpr  Force cannot be used to effect a foreclosure on lands,  that is, to evict a purchaser  who has missed payments.  Force cannot be used to evict  tenants for non payment of  rent. Etc. In all these cases,  if the other party will not cooperate, a court order must be  obtained, and if necessary, the  court will send out an official  such as sheriff's officers and  they can use force.  A reasonable amount of force  may be used in self defence  but only so much as is necessary under all the circumstances to make the attacker  desist. Force may be used to  repel trespassers. Generally  speaking, the trespasser must  first be ordered off the premises. If he refuses to leave,  he should be gently pushed.  The degree of force should be  gradually increased until it is  sufficient to expel the intruder  and if necessary prevent his  re-entry. The private investigator gathering divorce evidence falls in the category of  a trespasser.  If force is used unlawfully or  excessively, the user may be  convicted of assault and sued  civily for damages.  (By DOROTHY GREENE)  PART ONE  , (Copyright)  Since the arrival of Finnish  born Evert Nyfors, "a Swedish  speaking Finn, as manager of  the Royal Bank of Canada in  Gibsons, my ^memory has gone  back to the first visit I made  as a tourist in Finland-5 back  ,   in 1934. _',';���'. :r. %'Aypy-  It was the first year the  Arctic route postal bus service  had been completed from  Rovaneimi oh the Arctic circle  to Linahamari on the Arctic  coast, 350 miles, a truly thrilling two-day ride.  Linahamari is an ice free  port owing to the warm Gulf  Stream finishing just off shore.  It now belongs to the USSR,  as war reparations in 1945 along  with Karelia, the oldest province to the east of Finland'  bordering the previous boundary of 'the USSR.  This contained the medieval  city of Viipuri, with its ancient  monastery of Russion orthodox,  monks that had been allowed  to remain when Finland gained  her independence from 100 years  under the Czarist regime ending with the 1917 revolution.  A civil war followed in Finland with in some cases a Red  brother fighting a White brother. The result was triumphant,  a free independent Finland  after 600 years of serfdom, 500  under the great Swedish empire which on the whole ruled  wisely and well and allowed  the Finns to speak their own  language. Under Czarist rule  and Cossack riders' whips  the Russian language was,  however, compulsory in all  schools. i  I was privileged to witness  the revolution films and the  Winter War of 1940 when 4,000,-  000 or snore Finns kept USSR  armies at bay, chiefly by the  use of the molotoff cocktail.  This bomb was invented by the  Finns to be: used by a lone ,  soldier sitting in a trench; on  a logging trail in the unending  forests in temperatures to 60  degrees below zero. He would  thrust it into the bowels of. a  tank as it rolled above his head.  This was suicide but. it halted  Russian convoys from penetrating the lake country via logging trails. .  Films    describnig    the above  were   shown   privately   by   the -  Finnish War Office to members  of  the  British  council  in   1948  when I was librarian there.  The USSR then had a huge  control commission in Finland  and had already occupied the  Lapland northern arm of the  country with its open port,  Harelia to the south and Pokula,  a section of the coastline and  islands off the capital city of  Helsinki (Venice of the North).  It was also the country's main  port.  *      *      *  The Finnish government had  been forced to hand over all  steamers, and tourist transport  and had to use their own ice-  breakers'to keep the inner passage open between the Porkola  Islands and the mainland ��� the  Russian south zone.  I travelled out to work for  the British Council in a 12 passenger Finnish .cargo boat.  Great Britain could not afford  to have a control commission  having too many commitments  with collapsed Belgium, France,  Holland and Norway not to  mention a starving and defeated Germany.  Outside the Russian zone our  convoy of six small cargo boats  behind an ice-breaker was halted by a Russian control boat  and told we could not enter.  So there we sat in sight of the  close Finnish land for three  days with the ice-breaker cruising around us. The only relief  from monotony was when  youngsters from a nearby  school skied out. We threw  them oranges, probably the  first ones they had ever tasted.  The captain, a Finnish speaking Finn (10 percent speak  Swedish and all signs are in  the two languages throughout  this democratic country) was  as usual unmoved and said we  had lots of food and heat and  water and not" to worry.  #   7   * ',:"���'���'#   7  I was worrying as I thought  this would make headlines in  the press. My recently widowed  mother would be frantic. Luckily an American freighter created so much fuss that one convoy was allowed out and we  were allowed in. The inner  zone passage was then closed  for the winter of 1948 and the  Baltic sea then became a mass  of ice.  As a result longshoremen  at Helsinki docks were on relief and there was no accommodation for those at Turku.  Conditions in the country were  . appalling. Russian' control police with pistols were everywhere. All modern apartment  blocks and main hotels were  taken over by the Russians I  had to buy my ration book at  the police stations. I still have  my stamped passport.  Coffee and tea were $9 per  pound and, only obtainable on  the black market. Eggs were  21 cents . each. Milk, sugar,  meat, butter, cheese, bread and  all fats were rationed strictly.  Extra sugar could be obtained  in place of cigarettes or tobacco rations. (One needs extra  starch in a cold country).  Every article, shoes, sheets,  carpets and towels were made  of Finnish gold (paper) products  of the forest industry ��� at a  price, and what a price. Apples  were $3 a pound and so on!  At the British Council offices  in the Lasipalassi (Glass  House) we were given Paris  rations as part wages. This included six pounds of apples,  ��� one pound of tea and coffee,  three pounds of sugar per  month and were allowed to buy  duty free, one bottle of alcohol  and one of wine. I received 11,-  000 Finn marks a month and  found it barely enough to pay  tram fares to and from the office  The    Karelina,    Lapland and  20 YEARS AGO  COAST NEWS  L. S. Jackson wrote a long  letter to the Coast News about  a recent board of trade meeting which he described as a  fair sample of how not to do  things.  Three Sam Armours were in  Gibsons at the one time. One  pair were father and son back  from fishing upcoast while the  other was Grandpa Armour who  came to Gibsons in 1910.

The date of landing  was Oct. 1.  The last stretch of paving on  the highway to Earl's cove was  completed. The question arose  as to when the North Road  from Langdale area would be  payed.  Gibsons Meat Market advertised low prices on grade A  lean ground beef at three  pounds for $1.  St. Mary's hospital auxiliary  with Mrs. Norman Lee as president organized a fall bazaar  to raise some of the $700 for  the purchase of a tumbler dryer  for the hospital.  Farewell parties were arranged for departing Cpl. and Mrs.  J. Morrison of the RCMP who  are moving to Haney.  Porkala refugees filled every  available, room; The USSR gave  them. the choice of living under  the Soviet regime or walk (in  wintertime) and carry their  possessions on their back.

Father Lacombe persuading
Chief Crowfoot of the Black-
foot Indian tribes to allow the
Canadian Pacific railway to be
built across their land. This
was one.of the few obstacles
encountered by the C.P.R. as
it pushed dts tracks across the
prairies from Winnipeg in 1881
to Calgary in 1883 and the
Rocky mountains in 1884. Up
to six miles of track was laid
in a day: Settlers from eastern
Canada thronged into the west
via railway to take up homesteads. Towns mushroomed!
around  railway stations.
Father Lacombe was one of
the first Catholic missionaries
in the northwest. He came to
Edmonton in 1852 and started
the first school west of Manitoba. In his immense parish he
ministered to the scattered Indian and Metis population between the Bow and Peace Ri-•
vers and from the foothills to
the Saskatchewan forks. His
parishioners held him in great
respect. He was able to persuade Chief Crowfoot and his
tribe to accept other lands to
replace those needed by the
Crowfoot as a young brave
had been regarded as a fierce
warrior. Many victories in
tribal wars enhanced his reputation. But he soon' came to
realize the folly of tribal wars,
and with Father Lacombe he
was able to influence his people not to join Sitting Bull's
hostilities against white men.
Later Crowfoot and Lacombe
prevented  the  Blackfoot  tribes
Q. When 'a man meets a woman on the street and walks
with her, and she is carrying
a number, of packages, should
he offer to carry them for her?
A. Only if the packages seem
bulky and heavy, or if she is
loaded down with them. Otherwise, it is not necessary.
Q. Are the announcements of
a young widow's second marriage worded the same as those
for her first marriage?
A. Yes.
Q. What do you think about
a woman's rising from her
chair when acknowledging an
A. While this is not considered necessary, and while not
generally expected, still I like
to see a woman rise when
acknowledging an introduction.
It seems to indicate a more
genuine pleasure over the meeting.
Q. Is it ever permissible for
the parents of a young man
who has just become engaged
to make the announcement?
A. Not the official announcement. Only the parents of the
bride are entitled to make this.
If she has no parents, then her
nearest relative has the priv-
from joining the Northwest Rebellion of 1885. Crowfoot was
eventually given a pension by
the C.P.R. for keeping the
peace. He died near Calgary
in 1880. Lacombe died in 1916
after many years of service to
his people, his church and his

Can a gentleman
find happiness with
Old Style Beer ?
A very important question. Better consider it slowly and thoughtfully- over a
glass of Old Style. While you're meditating, note the flavour. Bold, forthright.
Yet there's nothing rough about it, is there? On the contrary, natural aging
has made it mellow and mature. Gentle, in fact. That's it! Suddenly, the answer is clear and you realize... you're happy. This calls for another Old Style!

Ph. 885-900S  SECRET COVE  11 miles  west of Sechelt  Sunshine   Coast  Highway  ���Most of the Regional District  area falls within the Quadra  Public Sustained Yield Unit, administered directly by the provincial Forest Service: Although  the sustained yield principle of  forest management can introduce stability to the industry on  a province wide basis, this is  not guaranteed at the local level.  A particular logging operation  may, for instance, operate for  five years out of ten. Due to  over-exploitation in previous  years, the first growth in the  area has been cut, and the second is roughly half gone.  Locally, therefore, the logging  picture does not appear too  bright for the next 15 to 20  years. Eventually, sustained  yield should in theory protect  the( future of the industry from  past malpractices, and introduce  some measure of overall continuity to production. One cannot,  however, discount the possibility of a decreasing demand for  wood and wood products, especially in the construction industry, with- the increasing use  of, for example, plastics and industrialized building methods to  meet the ever-pressing needs of  housing.

In order to survive today,  the independent logging:operator must expand the size of his  operation; to achieve this, he  can only buy out the quotas of  smaller or less successful concerns. This trend has resulted in  the virtual disappearance of the  small one or two man gyppo operations, which logged intermits  tently. As scale and capital investment increase, so it becomes uneconomic to log smaller or less accessible stands. In  these terms, survival is almost  a question of continued growth.  Logging operations are now  situated mainly along Jervis,  Salmon and Sechelt Inlets, and  Prince of Wales Reach; and average size is between 10 and 25  men. These have small local  employment potential and their  contribution in terms of payroll spent in the area is alsi  roll spent in the area is also  are flown directy to and from  the metropolitan Vancouver  area.  Other  discernable  trends  are  vertical integration through con-,  traetual   agreements,    and   increasing domination by the five  largest companies.  ^A number of small sawmills  can be found in the area; but  these   are   mostly   intermittent  and   tied   to   local   market   demands.  However,  as  the  question of pollution becomes more  and more acute and the cost of  waterfront land increases in the  Vancouver   area,   Howe   Sound  may well develop as the major  Canadian west coast wood processing region.  L and K Sawmills have already purchased a lot on the  west coast of the Sound in the  event that they may toe forced  out of the Vancouver waterfront.  Other operations may well follow this lead, thus providing a  new and significant source of  employment and income. But  the danger remains of /having  too may eggs in the wood basket, and a greater attempt must  be made to attract industries,  which can provide a larger  measure of long-run stability  and strengthen the regional ec-y  onomy. '���''''  The local forest industry is  dominated by the Port Mellon  pulp mill of Canadian Forest  Products. The. mill, with a  bleached kraft capacity of 520  short tons per day, utilizes pulp  chips accumulated at the company's sawmilling and plywood  operations, and purchased from  independent sawmill operators  on the contractual basis ��� none  of this is derived locally.  Operation of the mill is closely tied to world market conditions, and production is sold en-  I  jtsSfev  PQ  tirely on the open market. The  July 1967 output was approximately half the average monthly production of 14-15,000 tons,  and the outlook over the next  two years is not promising.  The mill employs approximately 500 persons, with a payroll of  roughly $2.8 million (net) an-  ually. Using an average family  size of 3.5, the mill supports directly some 1750 people, or approximately 20>% of the district's 1966 population. Further,  if there is one service employee  to every employee engaged in  manufacturing (an arbitrary  figure for the sake of illustration), the mill can be said to  support a further 500 employees in service industries (or a A brief reference was made  total of .40% of the districts in a recent issue of  population) In addition, this^.t0 a trip taken by myself and  economic  effect  of ^the mm _is^friend   Mrs.   Nell   Dolley   (not  ., ^oiiy ^^ reported).

Port Mellon's contribution to  the economy is, therefore, very  significant, and it is probably  safe to say that without the mill  the region would collapse economically. This is a strong argument for developing other industries which have local potential, and can provide alternative, and perhaps more secure,  sources of employment and income.

This information was supplied  the regional board at its meeting Friday night of last week  and was based' on information  obtained by Clerk Charles Gooding from the department of municipal affairs in Victoria. To  settle this point, Victoria officials will be consulted.  A draft byaw for formation of  a garbage disposal area has  been sent to Victoria. The expected cost of this service will  be made known when the issue  comes to the plebiscite stage in  December.  The new building inspector reports four applications for permits, many enquiries regarding  building and sewage disposal  arrangements. He finds the public and contractors are happy  with the building inspector setup for the area. Mr. F. A. Rey-  burn,. the inspector, said he  found a dollar variation in  square footage costs between  here and the mainland. Over  there costs were $14 to $15 a  square foot and here costs ran  to $15 and $16. He put this down  to added transportation costs.  He also reported new septic  tank regulations which he said  meant that in future such disposal fields had to contain separate trenches six feet apart, no  more cedar plank covers, two-  family dwellings come under  the control of the provincial pollution board and eventually the  public health service might take  over the issuance of septic tank  permits.  Complaints were made by directors on what was considered heavy postage due being applied to mail received by them  from the regional office. Some  had 14 cents and others 16 cents  postage due added. A letter will  be sent to Vancouver postal officials to get clarification.

After opening the many gifts,  the bride-elect was presented  with, then cut a beautifully decorated pink and white shower  cake, after which refreshments  were served.  tional   words   might   not   come  amiss.

Of the 14 plans, 11  could be classified as minor alterations ��� the consolidation of  two adjacent lots into one, or  the subdivision of a single lot  into two. The other three, two  on Beaver Island and one in  West Sechelt, were subdivisions  creating 17, 12 and eight lots.  Activity in the real-estate market reflects, as might be expected, the present distribution  of population. The greater pre-  ponderence of homes offered for  sale were in the area between  Gibsons and Sechelt.  The   acquisition   of   sufficient  quantities  of water for domestic use is the key to further development. If this can be provided, then residential expansion  will   follow.   At   present,   such  amenity factors as direct access  to the waterfront and, to a lesser   extent,   view,   play   a  very  important role in demand. However, in the choice locations, say  around   Roberts   Creek,   waterfront property  can fetch  from  $40 to $65 or above a front foot,  mabing the price of a 100 ft. lot  anywhere from $4,000 to $6,500,  onto which must be added the  cost of a relatively substantial  house.

Bender Harbour has enormous potential for  the development, of recreation  and tourist facilities tied to. boat  ing and sport fishing,; and; with  it both permanent and summer  homes. \  To perhaps generalize the picture somewhat, the ddstrict can  be divided in two by a line  drawn several miles west of  Sechelt: below this line, the  area will remain primarily residential, probably concentrated  in,the half circle from Langdale  to; Roberts Creek; above the  line, the area will cater more  to recreation, tourism and summer homes focussed on Pender  Harbour and Egmont, with new  development of this type along  Sechelt Inlet.      -  A major problem that will  arise in future years will be that  of replotting; especially along  the coast, where many lots are  600 ft. to 900 ft. in depth. This  problem must not be tackled on  an individual and haphazard basis, but must be worked out with  in the framework of an overall  plan. .     ���  New VW station bus with  sliding door is one of complete  new line of multipurpose commercial vehicles for 1968.

Alas, even science now confirms that family spending  peaks at a much later date.  A study on family expenditures by the Dominion Bureau  of Statistics finds that, going  by the age of the family head,  those from 45 to 55 have the  highest expenditures on food,  shelter, clothing, transportation,  medical care and personal care,  recreation and education. The  only exception to the pattern  was in purchases of furnishings  and home equipment, where the  big spenders were in-the 25-'  to-35 years age group.  Another possible exception to  the pattern concerns purchases  of tobacco and alcohol, which  seem to be highest in the 55-to-  60 years age group. But DBS  wonders if this is quite true.

Well, science  or no,  parents  who have experienced it will  confirm that family costs rise  in direct relation to the needs  and demands of teenagers.  Those who are in that situation  can only grin and bear it, and  look back on those happy days  when baby-sitting fees seemed  to be digging a big hole in the  family budget. ��� C.  J.  H.

Total.population in  1951 was 6471; in. 1956, 6673; in-  1961, 7210; and in 1966, $169 ���  representing increases of 3.2%,  .8.0% and 13.3% respectively  over each five year period.  Over the fifteen- year period,  the village of . Gibsons increased from 722 to 1450 and Sechelt  decreased from 676 to 468.  In broad terms, the population  is relatively evenly distributed  in the form of linear development along the coast and Highway 101. The almost continuous strip form of development  along the shoreline is, even in  non-urban terms, wasteful of a  waterfront potential which  should be enjoyed by all and not  just a fortunate.few. Further, it  *  *  *  Age groups  Age group statistics indicate  that the district has a lower  than average proportion of the  population in the younger age  groups, and a much higher than  average proportion over 45, especially over the retirement age  of 65. The area, thus, has a definite attraction for retired persons.  School enrollment figures for  the period 1951-66 show a general upward rise. In the five  year periods from 1951 to 1966  the population increased 3.2%,  8.0% and 13.3%. Over the same  periods school enrollment increased 45.5%, 16.3% and 22.3%  respectively, indicating that the  population is becoming progressively younger.  Growth in enrollment cannot  be accounted for solely by natural increase; in migration of  young families with school-age  children would appear to be  quite high, and this has ramifications for the type of services,  especially school and recreation  facilities, that must be provided. The population may in fact  be heading towards a greater  degree of balance "between the  age groups, and* although remaining^ high ^-the; proportion of-  the population over 65 may be  decreasing in relative terms.  The population growth rates  indicate a fairly high level of  in-migration, and therefore a  projection, which is usually based on past relationships i will  tend to be inaccurate. There is,  however, no real alternative as  a basis without dissecting  growth into its various components and deriving a series of  factors to express future trends.  Elements affecting a decrease  in population are out-migration  of young people, a higher than  average death rate, and a decreasing birth rate; .those affecting an increase are in-migration of settlers and retired  people, greater employment opportunities, and increasing subdivision activity.         Projections can be derived in  a number, of ways. Bullock, in  his West Howe Sound Water Report, used the B.C. average annual growth rate of 3.5% compound. When applied to the 1966  population of 8169, this gives a  forecasted population in 198L of  13,683. (The growth rate for the  district represented by the 1961-  66 increase is 2.5% compound.)  From various projections, a  reasonable forecast for 1981,  based on past trends would be  13,000. However any such prediction must be used only as a  guideline. ,  Freezer Bread  2tf��F  per LOAF on  20 loaves or more  Gibsons Bakery  Gibsons & Sunnycrest Plaza  Phone 886-7441  Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-9900  will present major problems  when domestic services, water  and sewers, are considered.  An examination of the population distribution by census  enumeration areas shows the  following pattern. The Gibsons,  Sechelt and Pendier Harbour  areas have the largest numbers  of people. But over the 15 year  period) absolute decreases were  experienced in the Gambier and  Bowen Islands, Port Mellon,  Pender Harbour, Nelson Island  and northern areas, and in the  village of Sechelt. Relative increases, measured by an increase in percentage of the total   population   in   a   particular  enumeration area, occurred, in  the village of Gibsons, along the  coast west of Gibsons to Wilson  Creek, and also in the area just  west of Sechelt.  These trends indicate that the  relative importance of Gibsons  and the area west of the village  (the south-east section .of the  district) is increasing; while  that of the area west and north  of Wilson Creek, with the exception of enumeration area 53, ie%  declining, most likely due to,a  decrease in resource-oriented  activities.  This   appears   to  be   a  long- '  term trend, and it is more than  \>robable that it will be accen  tuated by increased residential  activity around Gibsons in the  next five to ten years. Pender  Harbour could maintain or improve its position, however, if  this area was to develop its potential as a recreation and tourist area.7  The foregoing figures do not  take into acQourit summer-only  residents who own cottages in  :he district, and use them predominately in the months of  July and August. From the picture produced by the results of.  the land use survey, which.depended largely on data contained within the assessment roll,  -i~...ier cottages form a  large  proportion of the total residential use especially north of Sechelt,   and   to   a   lesser  extent  ' south of the village.  A reliable indication of summer cottage population are the  seasonal residential accounts of  the B.C. Hydro and Power Authority. Hydro statistics show 914  (1967 estimated) seasonal residential connections. Multiplying this by a factor of four (assuming these families to be of  a larger than average size) estimated summer population  would be approximately 3600, a  proportion of which may maintain continuous summer resi-  ..^nce,   while   others   may   use  Coast News,  Oct.  5,  1967.  their cottages only on .weekerio_3.  While the economic effects of  these summer residents may in  fact be small; planning for the  district must effectively.^ take  into account both the^permanent  and temporary population. ;  Hydro accounts show a significant number (above 20% of the  total) of seasonal connections in  the following areas: Williamson's Landing, Hcptans ___tnding  and Granthams Landig -���36%;  Roberts Creek ��� 30%; Porpoise  Bay 33%; Halfmoon Bay, Secret  Cove, Middlepoint and Bargain  Harbour ��� 47%; the Pender  Harbour Communities ��� 22%;  Gambier Island ��� 59%; and  Keats Island ��� 96%.  1  <ii%_B  WITH AN  AUTOMATIC CLOTHES DRYER  Sure is!

E. Ritchey, vice-president, in 7 the chair, TEt. J. Maxwell, secretary and controller,  presented the report on the ten  months' operation showing a  net profit for _he period of $7,-  237.13 or 2.2 % which the chairman pointed but was a very  favorable return in comparison  to the 1% average net profit  turned in by many of the; large  chain stores.  Frank Hay, Co-op store manager, pointed out that many of  last May's recommendations  had already been installed in-"  eluding implementation of  weekly sales budgets in all  three divisions, groceries, meats'  and produce; man-hour control  records in all department's. Inventories were found to be well  balanced. It was also noted  that quantities of hardware and  dry goods are appearing on the  sales floor. These additions as  Mr. Hay explained would help  round out the sales picture and  increase profit levels.  Consideration to the organization structure was also outlined and the breakdown of the  various functions, including  ownership, stewardship, management, finance, control and  accounting records each defined closely.  The present position of Co-op  membership indicates it is down  slightly, this largely due to the  withholding of dividends last  .'������'���.���        . v '���     ���  Pork, potato  supply heavy  Heavy supplies of pork and  potatoes are likely-to keep  prices low for a while says a-  Food Outlook for October prepared by the Canada Department of Agriculture economics  branch.  Eggs: Egg prices are not likely   to   change  much.   Grade A ���  mediums will be relatively more  plentiful   than  larger   sizes.  Turkey: Light roaster turkey  prices could be lip slightly for  Thanksgiving as supplies have  been reduced. Prospective supplies of heavy birds appears  adequate for demand.  Chicken: Broiler chicken  prices steady with supplies  ample. Supplies of light roaster  chicken remain excessive in  Central Canada.  Beef: With a strong consumer  demand for beef and lighter  supplies, prices are expected to  remain firm.  Pork: Supplies are expected  to be even heavier than usual  for the season and prices weaker.  Potatoes: Newly dug potatoes  are offered in large quantities  and prices are still low. This  will ilikely last until potato crop  is put into storage, when prices  may rise due to the crop being  much smaller than last year's.  Apples: A very large crop of  good quality apples is coming  to market. Prices are firm  mainly due to the smaller crop  of most other tree fruits.  Fresh Fruit: A good variety  of domestic fresh fruits is finding a strong demand and prices  are firm.  Fresh Vegetables: Peak offerings are past, and prices  are rising for most fresh vegetables.  year. However, the chairman  pointed out there is a good indication a dividend' will be declared on the current year's  operation. A motion was made  that such a dividend be paid  into the hands of the members  three weeks before Christmas,  this to be taken under advisement by Mr. Maxwell who conceded the feasibility of such a  move. Frank Hay on receiving"  a hearty vote of thanks for the  great improvement in the company's  position  during the  ten  months of the confirmation of  his appointment as manager,  gave, full credit to his staff and  particularly to Mr. Maxwell  who had maintained close control on all phases of the operation. The present actiyemem-  bership is just under 300 with  25b regular member shoppers.  Dollar-wise members spending  represents slightly less than  half of the total sales. It was  also indicated there are many  valued and faithful customers  who are non-members.  In the question session a recurring note was the desirabil-  ity of the same type of beef  sales promoted by other chain  stores. Several members, were  quite outspoken on this subject  and pointed out that in making  the family food dollar stretch  to the limit, it was economically necesary for them to take  advantage of such specials and  in doing so, there was the tendency to stock up on other  commodities while seeking bargains in the meat section..  L.A. ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION BRANCH 109  RUMMAGE   SAL  Saturday, Get. 14  <    ��� ���.   - .  10 a.m. to 12 noon  LEGION   HALL - GIBSONS  ALL ARTICLES OF CLOTHING, Etc., APPRECIATED  Please phone Mrs. Marie Clark 886-9606  Next time you're in the woods and you see someone  with a spray gun marking certain trees with blue paint,  don't call a forester. A forester pianned this and the  man is just doing his job. He's marking trees that are  crowding their neighbors. Later, they'll be harvested  by logging crews.  Nature seldom provides the careful spacing young  trees require to grow their biggest and fastest. Overcrowding robs some of them of sunlight and soil nutriment. The underprivileged trees become stunted:  many die. Worse, they also prevent their healthy  neighbors from reaching their optimum growth.  So we thin them out when they reach a harvestable  size - say by age thirty or so. And B.C.'s entire forest  economy gains in two ways. First, because we turn into  pulp and other marketable products trees that would  otherwise die. Second, because vigorous growth of the  remaining well-spaced young trees results in a much  larger total yield of quality timber.  Commercial thinning of second growth stands is  one of many things MB is doing to secure more jobs  from the forests of today - and a bigger, better crop  for tomorrow.  That blue paint marks a rosy future for the forests. SHINE COAST DIRECTORY  Coast News, Oct. 5, 1967.  '*-��-^-_3F  WANT SOMETHING DONE!

Report outlines  (Continued from page 1)  traffic from the Pacific Northwest. The ownership of pleasure craft is increasing annually,  especially in the United States,  and the Sunshine Coast offers  some unique opportunities for  cruising in sheltered waters.     ,  Further to the question of  zoning, I mentioned the possibility of west Howe Sound developing as a major wood processing area. In view of this, a_v  industrial zone could be erea'^d  along the coast south of Port  Mellon.  Other trends indicate that the  Langdale-Roberts Creek area is  likely to become urbanized in  the coming years* A special  study should be conducted to  examine the development potential, the number of people the  area could accommodate, the  possible densities, the facilities  that would be needed.  I have said that the Sunshine  Coast Regional District has considerable potential. I believe  this to lie in the direction of recreation and tourism; and the  ability to support industry other  than forestry and that connected in some way with recreation  (boat building for example) is at  present low. But the district  should not wait for this development to come of its own accord  and on its own terms. Other  areas within the Strait of Georgia have a similar potential. The  district can pursue an active  policy of attraction and control.  Original oils  In the window of Kruse Drug  Store, Gibsons, are two eye  compelling original oil paintings of the local scene by Councillor Wes Hodgson. One oil,  painted in 1960, as a shore bit  on Barter's Island; the other a  recent painting along the Howe  Sound coast.  Mr. Hodgson paints with a  sureness and clarity of natural  detail, blending his colors from  the vivid blues of the sky to  the more sombre shading of  rock and foliage  The artist diversifies, favoring portraiture as his metier.  One of Mr. Hodgson's oils, the  portrait of the late Major Harry  Mullins V.C., former sergeant-at  arms in the Saskatchewan legislature, was commissioned by  the provincial government and  hangs in the provincial capitol,  Regina.  He has exhibited originals in  Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg,  and at the Western Arts Studio,  Vancouver.
