 Provincial  Library,  Victoria,   B.   C.  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 1,  Jan. 4,  1968.  10c per copy  three car suspensions  The ROMP at Gibsons and  Sechelt report a quiet Christ-  masnNew Year holiday period  on/the Sunshine Coast. Road  patrols issued only three suspensions on car drivers somewhat the worse for. liquor. One  was in the Gibsons area and  two in the Sechelt district.  There was one accident resulting in injuries involving two  men in the Gibsons area and  one minor off-the-road accident  in-Sechelt  district.  Victim of the accident in Gibsons area was Ronald Hilmer  Olson, of Gibsons who was driving with TLionel Gordon Speck  of Vanderhoof, - B;c. The car  was proceeding along South  Fletcher road at about 5 a.m.  Sunday from Winn road towards  the Municipal Hall. when it  came into contact with a parked car. The collision : caused  both men to suffer facial injuries from windshield gla.ss.  Olson, the driver, walked  back to the Health Centre building and endeavouring to reach  a telephone for help, broke the  glass window of the door, gained entry and phoned for an ambulance. Dr. Hugh Inglis also  responded to the call.  In the meantime Olson; bleed  ing considerably, left bloody  marks in the area. Having obtained help he went to a nearby  house and awaited the; doctor  and ambulance. Both men were  taken to St. Mary's Hospital  for' treatment. Police are" investigating the accident.  ROMP at Gibsons and Sechelt reported the- road blocks  worked perfectly and both detachments were pleased with  the general attitude of drivers  in keeping the accident and suspension activity at a low mark.  Years work  Public meeting Jan.  outlined  Picture of the year!  THE MOST CHEERFUL picture that can be presented to Gibsons  residents for the year 1967 concerns the one million gallon reser-/  voir which now occupies the space above which was photographed  Ikst May while it was toeing scooped out. -Itis now flilled.  A public meeting will t>e held  at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6 in  the Union Hall on Wyngaert  Road in Gibsons (old Hilltop  Building Supplies). Bob Prittie,  a federal member of parliament  from the Lower Mainland, will  be at this meeting to answer  questions and discuss the performance of the past year's  parliament.  Whil^^ it   is  hoped Hartley Dent, NDP candidate for the new federal riding of Coast^Chilcotin, will also  be there to answer questions  and meet people. Mr. Dent, a  school    teacher    at    100    Mile  House in the vast new riding of  Coast-Ohiltcotin, is the NDP  candidate that did so well an  the provincial by-election which  satw Attorney-General Bonner  running for his political life.  All persons are invited to attend this meeting. With the possibility of a federal election  soon taking place it is not too  early to begin considering the  critical issues confronting Canada today and how they may  be most effectively met. The  meeting, once again, will toe  this Saturday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m.  in the UnionYHall, Wyngaert  Road.  ���iOttg  t  ? Yxhe   following   statements is  chairman, British Columbia Cen  tennial committee:  In British Columbia 1966 and  1967 were years of excitement  and significance. Two successive centenaries were celebrated,  with almost every citizen in the  province involved to some degree.  As 1967 closes off Canada's  first century and 1968 heralds  the beginning of Century H, it  is appropriate to recognize the  hard work and imaginative action on the part of many thousands who were directly connected with the success of two centennial years.  On behalf, of the ,board of di->.  Centennial. committee, I-am privileged to extend a very hearty  well done to the chairman and  members of 23 sub-committees  and 384 local committees.  'These dedicated people put  an exclamation point on the  ending of Century I. We can be  confident that the resulting im-  ' petus wall surge over into Century IT.  To all Centennial workers,  may I say thank you very much  for your efforts and your I accomplishments. To all citizens  of Brutish Columbia, I wish a  happy and prosperous Second  Century.  Films on city problems  The views of Lewis.Mumford,  one of the world's foremost  authorities on the city, will highlight the theme of the winter-  spring film series of School District 46 Adult Education department. All films in the series will  be built around the theme  Where Man Lives.  'Filmed in 11 countries by the  National Film Board, six of the  films in the series are an engrossing study of the city as it  once was, the city as we know  it now, and the city as it may  be if it survives the dangers  which Mr. Mumford points out  to you on the screen.  These films are, in fact, a  master-view of the city and the  glories of city life, with all the  achievements, failures, and promises of our urban culture  made plain. Throughout the  films you feel the warm attachment to cities which underlies  Mr. Muimford's conviction that  the city is man's most precious  collective invention.  The film program will begin  on Jan. 9 at Welcome Beach  Community Hall, on Jan. 10 at  Sechelt Elementary school, and  Jan. 11 at the Gibsons Elementary school.  Scout Capers succeed  During the final council  meeting of Gibsons municipality last week, Chairman Wes  Hodgson, who relinquishes the  chair to. Councillor Fred Feeney issued the following statement on work done by council  nuring the  year:  In leaving the chairmanship  I do so with the knowledge that  I have given my best and which  has made an indelible mark on  the future of the village as the  following projects show:  Town Planning: The first  year of a five year project completed.  Landscaping: The. first year  completed of the five year plan  of beautifying the village.  Water:   Increased  water   available for douhle the popula-  :i{tip^eo^^e.ed^_j967;,        *��'';���>  Extension: Village plan completed.;  Magistrate's Court: Made available in the municipal hall.  Road work: Two year's work  done in 1967.  Dougal property. The title of  the Dougal property transferred to the Municipality and  leased to the Kinsmen.  Centennial Project: It was  necessary to take over this project and it has been completed  before the expired time of December 31, 1967.  Change of Name: From Gibsons Landing to Gibsons.  Re-appraisal of Village Assets: Not previously shown.  Happy days!  Remember the note on page  one of the issue before Christmas when someone had lost a  Christmas parcel on the 4:30  p.m. ferry?  Well, it had a good ending  and the parcel eventually reached the owner after information  received by the Coast News  was passed on to both parties  involved in the mixup.  It appears that on the ferry  parcels were in close proximity  to each other and the one involved in the mixup was discovered by a Halfmoon Bay family when its members reached  home and started sorting out  what they had.  MR. AND MRS. A. G. GRATTAN of Beach Ave., Gibsons, on January 7 will celebrate their golden wedding They met in England  , ^tiring thp. First .War-and, were married.in Devon. .The ..famil^r.consists of three children 'and five grandchildren; Mr. Grattaii has  spent most of his working period during the last 60 years in the  B.C. coastal country and before retirement was with the Hudson  Bay Company. He moved to Gibsons 12 years ago.  ^f^fjtSJft+fSfjfSfSSS* ���*���"  GETTING AROUND the Sunshine Coast to meet people last week  was Hartley Dent, (right) N.D-P. candidate for the new federal  riding of CoastOhilcotin. Apart from attending several short  meetings Mr. Dent visited the Canadian Forest Products pulp mill  at Port Mellon. Accompanying him on the mill tour was Mike  Blaney, vice-president of Local 297 of the Pulp, Sulphite Union.  New Scout commissioner  The show Centennial Capers,  held in. Elphinstone High School  Dec. 1, was a great success. In  addition to the experience and  fun had by the boys and the  audience, the district has been  able to obtain s__3f_cient funds  for the ensuing year's Scouting  operation. Thus it will not be  necessary to assess the individual groups in Gibsons, Port Mellon or Roberts Creek, nor will  it be necessary to canvass further this year from local citizens,    ��� '       ,.:,,      '.,-,.:,   ���:.-   .  Profit on the show, including  tickets and program advertising will be about $350. In addition there is a generous dona  tion from the Howe Sound Pulp  Employees Charity Fund of  $200, making total income $550.  This as been budgeted as follows for 1968: Administration,  $30; Whaler maintenance, $25;  leader and lay training and  meetings, $50; district Cub and  Scout program $145; District  support for the larger area organization (regional, provincial  and national) $300.  WINS DRESSER SET  Chris Christiansen of Gibsons  was winner of the ladies' dresser set drawn  for on Dec.  23  at Earl's in Gibsons.  C OF C MEETING  The annual general meeting  of the Pender Harbour and District Chamber of Commerce  will be held at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at the Pender Harbour Hotel, Madeira Park. Election of the executive council  will take place at this meeting.

This will be followed by  a question period. All members  are urged to attend -fad guests  Robert Simmons has been appointed'assistant provincial com  missioner for Scouting for . the  provincial council of British Columbia and the Yukon. This  appointment is in keeping with  the adoption of the new challenging and exciting program  for boys in the 11 to 14 age  category.  The new program will toe implemented in September 1968,  but in the interim much work  is necessary in fully informing  the Scouting family of its ramifications. Special emphasis will  be given to the training of  volunteer personnel to ensure  a smooth transition from the  old to the new.  Bob Simmons, a native of  British Columbia, started scouting in this province and continued his interest as a volunteer Scouter in Vancouver, San  Francisco, Washington, ~ D.C.,  Montreal, . Toronto 'y and how,  having completed the cycle, -s  back where he started. He has  held virtually every position in  the volunteer field and was decorated by the Boy Scouts of  Canada (Silver Acorn) and the  Boy Scouts of America (Silver  Beaver) for distinguished service to boyhood.  Goes far  During November and December the Coast News received orders for the Beautiful B.C.  magazine to be sent to such  countries as South Africa, England, Scotland, Wales, the  Channel Islands, New Zealand,  Estonia, Africa and the USSR.  In the United States they were  sent to Vermont, Florida, Minnesota, California and in Canada to Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Quebec and Ontario.  During one morning two lists  of nine subscriptions apiece  came from two persons.

Bennie,  Hopkins Landing, $300 was  raised, [. $100 more than last  yearYOnly ten persons managed to get to the party but many  others telephoned and later  sent  donations  by mail.  Port Mellon Teeners sent $20  and Mrs. Scott's kindergarten  sayed v their pennies and one  little lad saying up to 100 which  he aded to the fund.  Mrs. Bennie thanks all who  donated and receipts will be  sent from Ottawa to persons-  who sent their donations in the  form  ofY cheques.  me  The regular January meeting  of the BPW club will be held at  Ole's Cove Resort on Tuesday,  Jan. 9.

The first comes from the reliable Ladies Home Journal  which has pioneered in many fields. It is a poetic exposition on  the language of hippies by Jane Goodsell to whom we offer congratulation on having produced the following:  Remember when HIPPIE, meant big in the hips,  And a TRIP involved travel in cars, planes and ships?  When POT was a vessel for cooking things in,  And HOOKED was what grandmother's rug might have been?  .  When MX was a verto that meant mend or repair,  And BE-IN meant simply existing somewhere?  When NEAT meant well organized, tidy and clean,  And GRASS was a ground-cover, normally green?  When lights and not people were SWITCHED ON and OFF,  And The PILL might have been,what you took for a cough?  When CAMP meant to quarter outdoors in a tent,  And POP was what the weasel went?  When GROOVY meant furrowed with channels and hollows,  And BIRDS were winged creatures, like robins and swallows?  When FUZZ was a substance that's fluffy like lint,  And BREAD came from bakeries, not frorii the mint?  When SQUARE meant a 90-degree angled form,  And COOL was a temperature not quite warm?  When ROLL meant a bun, and ROCK was a stone,  And HA'NGtUP was something you did to a phone?  When OHICKEN meant poultry, and BAG meant a sack,  And JUNK trashy cast-offs and old bric-a-brac?  When JAM was preserves that you spread on your bread,   ;  And CRAZY meant balmy, not right in the head?  ���   When OAT was a feline, a kitten grown up,  And TEA was a. liquid you drank from a cup? *  When SWINGER was someone who swung in a swing,  And a PAD was a soft sort of cushiony thing?  When WAY OUT* meant distant and far, far away,  And a man couldn't sue you for calling him GAY?  When DIG meant to shovel and spade in the dirt,  And PUTJON was what you would do with a shirt?  When TOUGH described meat too unyielding to chew,  And MAKING A SCENE was a rude thing to do?  : Words once so sensible, sober and serious  .     Are making the FREAK SCENE like BSYOHEDEUERIOUS.  It's GROOVY, MAN, GROOVY, but English it's not,  ' Methinks the language has gone straight to POT.  Next from the Inland  Printer,  published in Chicago   comes  some interesting information by Ramsey Oppenheim, a San Francisco' advertising and public relations vice-president.  He writes  on hippie art, there being considerable poster work coming from  print, shops in that city. Some samples hive reached the Sunshine  Coast. ,  Mr. Openheim writes that the art form that best expressed the  world they are trying to build was similar to Art Nouveau, in vogue  from the last days of the 19th Century to the mid-_.920s. Its best  known exponents included Audrey Beardsley and Toulouse-Lautrec.  Mr. Oppenheim also concluded that a large part of the hippie  stock-in-trade is to play games with the credulity that encrusts us  as we get older. Their pleasure comes from laughing at us as we  raise our eyes in wonder.  . Comment from Gibsons would advise that there is every reason  to suspect words will eventually revert to their usual meanings  and that the revived Beardsley esthetic art movement of the 1890s  will return to the limbo awaiting another generation to set a new  movement afoot.  COAST  NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  It was estimated there are 62  homes in the Halfmoon Bay  area from Sergent Bay, a distance of six miles, compared to  two on the main highway. These  figures were produced to back  the need for the Halfmoon Bay  road.  Canadian Legion Branch 219  held a New Year's Eve Dance  in Roberts Creek Community  hali. The Pony Pals provided  entertainment.  Mrs. E, Wheeler of Granthams Landing reports having  a dogwood tree in bloom.  Residential school pupils in  Sechelt provided a concert  which drew quite a number of  people' from all points in the  area..  'A New Year's Eve dance was  held in Bal's new hall over the  stores on Marine Drive. Attendance was  exceptionally good.  The shrimpboat Foxhill struck  a snag in shallow water off  New Brighton, Gambier Island.  Ruben Hill, one of the crew of  three, was reported drowned.  10  YEARS  AGO  Jack Mayne prepared a series of nine articles on the history of Sechelt for publication  in the Coast News. It ran for  about nine weeks.  Dick Kennett, the weatherman, reported that ' 1957 ; total  precipitation for the year was  six inches under normal. Highest temperature was 82^9; degrees and the lowest 10.5.'  Al and Queehie Lloyd ��� have  sold their motor court "in Pender Harbour area to Mr. J, B.  Love of Vancouver.  Dave Rees of Gibsons pre?  sented Gibsons'council with the  gavel he had used for many  years as chairman of many  labor  and  other meetings.   \  Because municipal w o r k  around the village was increasing Gibsons council decided to  advertise for a full time maintenance employee.  By JULES MAINIL.  It is a dark gloomy day ���  rain with the odd flake of snow.  A day to write about something cheerful, something  warm. Jean and I are bird  watchers. I do not mean that  we go around with binoculars  and weighty textbooks, avid  for exact recognitions. We just  like birds and give them whatever protection we can in an  unobtrusive way.  Directly in front of the house  we have a wild spot some 50  feet long by 30 feet wide. It  is a tangled mass of wild  cherry, wild plum, small fir,  and hemlock, huckleberry,  bracken, ferns _tnd some largish  broom. All around this area  are untended fruit trees. There  are birds in and around this  spot the year round, particularly in nesting time.  Amongst our favorites are  the Cedar Waxwings; beautifully colored, alert yet friendly,  brave as lions in defence of  nest 'and home grounds. Last  year to. our dismay we noticed  a pair of Waxwings starting to  build a nest in one of the small  cherry trees late in July ��� the  hottest and dryest part of the  year. Even as they were building the nest the leaves were  beginning to shrink and shade  was becoming sparse.  We had noticed previously  that Waxwings would fight  mightily to protect their nests  from excess heat and the direct rays of the sun, but that  if the heat situation got beyond their control they simply  abandoned their nest. To watch  the parent birds shading the  nest hour after hour, turning  with sun, ceaselessly beating  their wings, became a matter  of real concern to us. We had  to try to help, but nature in  its  delicate processes    is     not  Waxwings;;  easy to help.       v  We   decided   that   we  would  wet the bottom of the tree and  a small surrounding area with  a fine spray of water, three or  four times  a  day. At first we  sprayed for a couple of minutes  very close to  the ground. The  birds were nervous but stayed  on the edge of the -nest. Each  time  we   sprayed ��� we  raised it  a foot or so until finally, after  atoout     three     days,   we  were  spraying just   below   the   nest.  Finally    we . ��prayed the ,hen  bird and the nest itself and for  a minute the    bird's    courage  failed and it  hopped  a couple  of feet to a  branch  while  the  male nervously s perched on the  watching   tree   some   ten   feet  above our heads. We retreated  a few   feet,   the   hen   dropped  back  to the  edge  of the  nest,  opened her ibeak    and    started  slowly to fan once again.  From that moment it was a ���  joy to spray that tree and that  nest. We were completely accepted, as soon as we approached the nest with the fine water spray turned on, whatever  .bird was in attendance turned  toward us, opened its beak and  gently spread its wings. The  second bird, usually perched on  the bigger cherry tree, would  glance at us and then" resume ,  its guard duty, "watching for  jays, small hawks or squirrels.  The five eggs hatched, the  five nestlings matured. I do  not think that anything ever  gave Jean and me more pleasure than to- see the five cocky  young Cedar Waxwings hopping an their little cherry tree.  Three days later they and  both the parents had started  south. Next spring, when the  first Waxwing comes back to  our yard, one will get you two,  that our first remark will be  I bet that is one of our Waxwings.  COPVHIGH1   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 "Poini  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  Q. A guy owes me $500 and  he gave me a bum cheque. I  went to the police and they  wouldn't do anything so X went  and saw the prosecutor but still  got the run around. What can  I do to get a charge laid?  A. Not much. It is within  the prosecutor's discretion to  proceed or not as he sees fit.  If he thinks there is sufficient  evidence to take the case to  court, he will do so. If he does  not think there is sufficient evidence to proceed, he won't.  Prosecutors are not in the habit of wasting the court's time  by bringing hopeless cases before it. The prosecutor must  prove, among other things, that  the accused had the guilty intention to commit the crime  with which he is charged. It is  an everyday occurrence for perfectly honest persons  to write  POINT  OF LA  oy ~/r f^racticinp oLaivy  cheques for a larger amount  ��� than they have in the bank, either through error or forgetful-  ness. This does not mean they  intended to defraud anyone.  You have no particular status  in any criminal case that may  arise as a result of the dishonored cheque. The case -would  be called Regina versus (say)  John Doe. You would only be a  witness, or you might not even  have this function. You can sue  John Doe in a civil action. You  should see a lawyer and sue  John Doe in county court, or,  better still, sue yourself in small  debts court where no lawyer is  necessary or even desirable.  You would then be the plaintiff and John Doe the defendant. As plaintiff you could proceed or not as you saw fit or  settle the case out of court, etc.  There is, however, a procedure provided in the criminal  code whereby a complainant  who has laid an information  (that is, sworn an affidavit that  someone has committed a  crime) can bring the question of  whether or not the prosecutor  must proceed before a justice  of the peace who, after a preliminary hearing, will decide  the matter. This, however, is  only rarely used.  Money for Indian housing  Over six million dollars have  been spent during the last six  months to improve living conditions on Indian reserves, Indian Affairs    Minister    Arthur  Lairig has announced. The 5-  year, $112,000,000 reserve improvement program was designed to hit hard at the low standard of living in many Indian  communities7  More than three quarters of  this money has gone toward  housing.' Five hundred and  eighty houses have been built  so''far "this year, and another  1,178 are under construction.  Electricity has been extended to 991 Indian houses at a  cost of $274,198, making power  available for small appliances  and light for children studying  at home.  A total of $357,693 has been  spent to install pressurized water in 330 homes and to provide  another 232 with' sewers or  septic tanks. One "hundred and  seventy miles of new roads are  making it easier for>' Indians  to get to and from schools and  centres of employment. Another 170 are being constructed, bringing the total cost to  $602,403.  N.

Ottawa' will spend $10.3 billion  this year. This is a 5% increase  over 1967. Why the increase?  Why any increase at all? The  answer, basically, is wage increases in the civil service.  Last  year, wages   throughout  Canada rose by about 8%. The  unions, from one end of the  country to the other, were asking for -more money. Management, in most industries, gave  in. They gave large increases,  many of which are being reflected in the civil service as well.  But we have a brand new situation   in    Ottawa.

DECKER,   d.o s  OPTOMETRIST  For Apointment  886-2166  Every Wednesday  Bal Block  Gibsons  BY NAMCY  GAYLORD  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  Elegant and feminine styles  inspired by the Victorian era  come to the fore in party dresses that are a refreshing change  from the kooky and pseudo sophisticated looks. Notable fashion details include high necks,  lace-edged collars and yokes,  long sleeves with deep cuffs, or  baby doll seeves that are short  and puffy.  Sumptuous fabrics like flowing cotton velveteens, frothy  cotton laces, and lustrous cotton satins richly interpret the  holiday mood.  Black velveteen is a special  favorite when softened with  wide white collars and cuffs,  or stand-up ruffled lace edging  at the neck. One designer uses  it for a short sleeved A-line  with double rows of buttons  down the front. The deep U-  shaped neck of the dress is filled in with tiny rows of white  baby lace. Another version is  a black velveteen dress with a  low Garrison-buckle belt. It has  a wide white platter collar and  gold-linked French cuffs.  Most elegant of all are the  cotton lace party dresses. White  tablecloth lace fashions a long-  sleeved small smock dress with  a high yoke accentuated with  pale blue velveteen ribbon.  Many of the frilly party dresses  are complemented with fancy  lace-trimmed pants.  bargaining is now the order of  the day. Soon7 the federal government will be faced with fresh  demands from its 200,000 newly  organized public servants. And  we will be lucky as taxpayers  if the government gets away  with a 5% across-the-board increase this year.  Bank presidents and company  executives, of course, are quick  to offer a word of advice. Ottawa, they say, must set an example. It must hold the line.  And it must be tough even  though the general public may,  suddenly, demand a settlement  at any price.  Remember the summer of  1966. Remember the postal  strike. And remember how the  public began to say that the  postmen should be paid more  ��� a good deal more. Government under these circumstances  has a more difficult time holding the line than industry does.  These are new circumstances.  Collective bargaining in the private'sector has been between  management and labor with society itself looking on. And, as  an onlooker, it could provide a  mediator as well. But in the  public sector ��� when it comes  to an argument between the  government representing the  tax paying public and the civil  service ��� there is no third party standing on the sidelines.  There is no one to step in and  help settle the dispute. In other  words, at this critical time when  inflation is a serious problem in  Canada, we are entering into  a new phase in labor relations  in this country.  The federal government, I  think, was too quick to give its  civil servants the right to strike.  Binding arbitration, especially  if the awards are too high, can  also be an albatross around our  necks. Anything more than a  5% increase is bound to have  serious effects in the rest of  the economy.  The current situation is not  without a touch of irony. Collective bargaining in the civil  service comes at a time when  the minister of finance is calling for restraint. And restraint  if it is to be convincing, begins  at home.  Can Ottawa really practice  what it preaches? Can it really  hold the line against the greatest aggregation of white collar  workers ever to be unionized  in Canada?.I certainly hope so.  But to make sure that it does  not run over its 1968 target of  $10 billion, it should begin laying off a number of civil servants in any case.

In addition to  these agents of destruction, the  small birds' natural enemies  are always active. Crows and  magpies feed upon the eggs and  nestlings, as do snakes, while  Cooper's hawks and sharp-shinned hawks are also deadly enemies. Rats, squirrels, chipmunks, white-footed mice and  larger animals, such as the  skunk and coyote are equally  predatory when it comes to  birds eggs.

Why should  we of Gower Point have Gib*  : sons filth on our beach?  It; would be far more econ-  mical to dump this sewage at  Gibsons.

CONSTRUCTION  Everything ior your  building needs  GULF BUILDING SUPPLIES  Sechelt. Phone 885-2283  Editor: Through various mediums such as the press, portable classrooms as built in  this area and leased to the  school board have received  some public attention and the  writer wishes to clarify all  phases related to this local effort.  When 1967 budget expenditures were being formulated  and additional portable classrooms were under discussion,  the writer suggested that the  school board maintenance department construct such buildings as required at a figure of  $5,800 per unit. This was received with considerable enthusiasm.,  Apparently Victoria was not  as enthused and again apparently capital expenditure was  under freeze for such items as  portable classrooms as well as  construction money, the word  apparently used, as no correspondence re the above was ever  viewed t��y the writer.  The plan as submitted to-the  school district was discussed  subsequently with interested  parties in Nanaimo and Porta-  Fab Leasales was, formed to  propagate classrooms as an industry ��� enjoyed by many  other companies.  Peninsula   Woodworking   was  formed to produce these buildings on the Sunshine Coast and  after architectural changes  were made in design for a satisfactory building, they were  produced in this area with local money for the factory setup.  Materials purchased locally  were from Twin Creek Building  Supply, ��� Gibsons Building Supply, Sim Electric, Rockgas Pro  pane and paint from the Douglas Variety store resulting in  an expenditure of $35,000 and  only $3,600 was spent outside  the Sunshine Coast area, the  labor being local and by the  shop investors.  The resulting product was  rented to the school board at  $290 per month each, $35 a  month less than previously contracted to other suppliers. Porta Fab Leasales were equipped  with everything except desks.  In the two year contract with  the school board these buildings  will be fully maintained by local tradesmen and will liquidate  the principal investment only  and will have given the owners  no cash return.  In 1968 it is hoped that many  more of these buildjfcgs wlil be  produced and find their way to  many school districts, thus giving the Sunshine Coast the added industry it badly needs.  ���A.

Mr. Albert Cote and Mr. Henry Langan were recently appointed to positions of Justices  of the Peace by Saskatchewan  Attorney General\-D. V. Heald,  Q.C Both men are from the  Cote Reserve neatr Kamsack,  Saskatchewan.  Mr. Cote, 45, is chief of the  reserve and farms one section  of land. He has served on the  band council since the elective  system was introduced to his  reserve and plays an active part  in community affairs, both on  the reserve and in the town of  Kamsack.  Mr. Langan, 55, is a prominent member of the community  and is currently employed as  , a carpenter on the reserve housing program. He has been a  member of the band council  for several years and is presently a communications worker and provincial treasurer with  The Federation of Saskatchewan Indians.  Both men served overseas  with the Canadian Armed Forces during World War II and are  presently members of Branch  311 of the Royal Canadian Legion.  The appointments came about  after several meetings between  the provincial1 attorney general  and the Cote Band concerning  problems of law enforcement  on the reserve. The appointees  were trained by the attorney  general's office and the ROMP.  Since that time, they have been  frequently engaged by members of the force for consultation and guidance in matters  of law enforcement.  I.D.B. loans  aid business  During its 23 years of operations ended Sept. 30, the Industrial Development Bank  authorized almost 19,000 loans  totalling over $960 million to  Canadian businesses, according  to the bank's 1967 annual report.  Of this volume, 2,168 loans  totalling $113.1 million were  authorized in the bank's 1967  fiscal year compared with 2,-  334 loans totalling $122.6 million in the previous year.  The president, Louis Rasmin  sky, noted that 45 percent of  the IDB loans approved in 1967  were for amounts of $25,000 or  less and 91 percent were for  $100,000 or less, with the average size of loan being $52,000.  He said that the marked concentration of loans in amounts  of $100,000 or less, and the relatively small average size of  loan, reflect the special attention given to financing proposals from small businesses.

"I climbed to the top of Chip-  man's hill and watched the sails  disappearing in the distance,  and such a feeling of loneliness  came over me that, although I  had not shed a tear throughout  all the war, I sat down on the  damp moss with my baby in  my lap and cried." The grand-  - mother of Sir Leonard Tilley  thus described her arrival in  1783 as a Loyalist refugee from  New York.  The property of the Loyalists  had been confiscated almost everywhere in the 13 newly independent states, where they were  outnumbered about 2 to 1; and  their debts had been repudiated. The British government  had come to their rescue with  transportation and promises of  new land in Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick.  Arriving in three main flotillas during the year, most of  the civilian refugees settled in  the Nova Scotian peninsula lining the southwestern seaboard,  establishing a mushroom town  at Shelbourne, and filled in vacant spaces in the northeastern  part of the peninsula. A few  hundred went to Cape Breton  and Prince Edward Island. The  later arrivals included about  4,000 disbanded soldiers with  their women and children. They  had to squat near the mouth of  the St. John River, because  some of the land in the area was -  tied up on previous grants, and  the rest was unsurveyed; eventually they had to move several miles inland, where they  settled on both banks of the St.  John and up the east bank of  the St. Croix River.  As first the settlers were supplied with materials and tools  to  build  their  houses but  the  supply gave out. The latecomers  who were forced to go further  up the river, had to carve their  homes out of the forest; but the  supply of axes gave out and  many of the disbanded soldiers,  much to their disgust, were issued small hatchets. During  their first winter some had to  shelter themselves in huts of  bark or in tents banked up with  snow. Some of their women  and children died of exposure  and malnutrition.  The complaints of the Loyalists over their plight and the  lack of adequate preparations  for them,- led the British government to set up a new province for them north of the Bay  of Fundy. In 1784, New Brunswick was formed under an appointed governor and its own  executive council, composed  mainly of Loyalists; the next  year elections were held.  The refugees who went to  Prince Edward Island had  .great difficulty in obtaining  titles to the lands on which they  settled. Most of Prince Edward  Island had already been granted to large landed proprietors,  and these tried to compel the  settlers to become tenants, instead  of  owners   of  their  own  lands. It was many years before  the Loyalists in Prince Edward  Island became freeholders.  The settlement of the Maritime provinces by the Loyalists  was full of tragedy and this,  under the circumstances, was  perhaps inevitable. A few of the  settlers gave up the attempt to  wrest a living from the wilderness, and drifted back to their  former homes in the United  States. Some of the first settlers  in what are now Quebec's "eas  tern townships" were Loyalists.  A few others went to Upper  Canada. But the sterling qualities of those who remained enabled them eventually ito make  good in their new homes.

How about brittle, cracked,   or  split fingernails?  A. These are often due to  over-frequent applications of  polish and remover. When nails  chip excessively, remove the  polish, . treat with petroleum  jelly and hand lotion, and give  your nails a few day's rest from  any more polish until they recover.  Q. I like to wear bangs and  I wear them full ��� but they  always seem to look terribly  unkept. How can I make them  smooth and even?  A. You can try setting them  on large rollers ��� or combing  them down and holding them  in place with some transparent  tape until they are dry.

That, after all, is what each  one of us is to the scientist's  who study the pattern of a disease ��� the sum of all factors  that may be involved in producing it ��� in a population.  . A very special group of statistics are the people taking  part in more than a dozen such  studies of coronary disease and  heart attacks now going on in  many parts of the States. Over  the years and across the country, their individual histories  have merged into a composite  . picture from which it is possible to single out various factors that raise the risk of heart  attack.  The B.C. Heart Foundation  reports, that, on the basis of  these findings, analyzed and  correlated from several  sources, a medical census-taker could draw your coronary  profile ��� your risk of suffering  -a. heart attack. But first, this  is what he would want to know:  Your sex: It makes a difference. Men in their middle years  (45-64) die of heart attacks almost three times more often  than women in the same age  group. At 50, men are five  times likely than women of the  same age to suffer a heart attack. Not only do women develop symptoms of coronary  artery disease some 10 - 20  years later in life than men;  women tend to develop less  dangerous forms of the disease.  Your age: You may think  youth is your shield and armour, but approximately 30,-  000 people in Canada who died  of coronary disease in the past  year never reached three-score  and ten. They died too young,  between the ages of 25 and 64.  Evidiice is mounting that  atherosclerosis (the artery clogging that sets the stage for  heart) starts early in life ���  perhaps- even in infancy.  Your weight: Everybody may  love a fat man, but ��� among  middle-aged men who are 20%  over their normal weight, the  risk of a heart attack is twice  as great as among middle-aged  men of normal weight.  Do you smoke cigarettes?  Cigarette smokers in a population study which has been  going on in Framingham,  Mass., since 1949 had twice the  risk of non-smokers of having  DONATIONS INCREASE  Donations to date from Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society campaigns in B.C.  have jumped to $33,184. This  represents an increase of $4,441  over last year. Final results are  still to come in from some  areas which are not covered by  United Appeals.  CANADA'S MAJOR NATURAL  RESOURCE  The forest is the chief element in the economic growth  and prosperity. of Canada. On  it are based her great forest  industries and in particular the  pulp and paper industry which  is her leading manufacturer and  exporter.  a heart attack. This study also  indicates that smokers who give  up cigarettes reduce their risk  to nearly the level of people  who have never smoked. It was  also found that pipe and cigar  smokers have no more risk of  heart attack than non-smokers.  What do you do for a living?  The answer to this question  may provide the key to your  way of life. Is your job sedentary, or physically active? If  it's sedentary, do you try to  compensate after hours for the  lack of physical activity on the  job? Or do, you have too many  labor-saving gadgets for your  own good?  If you're .not getting much (or  any) exercise after office hours,  yau may be putting yourself  in a high-risk category on this  count. Surveys of several occupational groups ��� Israeli collective farm workers, London  transport workers, American  trainmen and postal workers���  suggest a recurrent theme. The  heart attack death rate is significantly higher among the sedentary echelons: the clerical  personnel vs. the field workers  on the Israeli farms; the drivers vs. stair-climbing conductors on London's double-decker  buses;     railroad     clerks     vs.  switchmen and other active  railway workers; the post office clerk vs. your friendly  neighborhood postman. The  more they move, the longer  they live.  How's your blood pressure?  cholesterol? Only your* doctor  can answer these questions, and  it might be a good idea to see  him if you haven't had a physical examination lately. High  blood pressure and high blood  cholesterol levels spell high  risk of heart attacks. In this  case, however, the B.C. Heart  foundation says, what goes up  can come down, and therein  lies the key to what you ��� with  the help of your doctor ��� can  do to reduce your risk on these  two fronts.  No one has yet discovered the  fountain of youth, nor is anyone suggesting that men alter  their sex; ibut everyone can see  his doctor and do something  about overweight, smoking,  exercise, high blood pressure  and high blood cholesterol.  Subsequent articles in this  series will deal individually  with the specific risk factors in  your coronary profile. More detailed information is available  from the B.C. Heart Foundation.
