Pearkes;  V.C. It was not difficult to be  moved deeply by. his entrance  to the chambers, looking very  regal indeed, for this was his  final opening ceremony at our  sessions He has done a wonderful job in his capacity of Lieu-  tenaistJGovernor arid he and  his gracious wife have endeared themselves to all segments  of society in our province:  .#.       *        *  It was a lengthy throne speech  making mention of several highlights in the Canadian Centennial celebrations throughout the  province, recipients of Pioneer  medallions, Project 100, distinguished visitors to British  Columbia, 350 projects completed in communities throughout  the province and others. ,  Legislative proposals would be  introduced at this session on  industrial relations, the Work  men's Compensation legislation,  legislation which was laid over  until this session; iriiprovements  and extensons of social welfare  benefits, an act to create the  mineral jade as the mineral emblem of the province.

PRICE INCREASE  An increase in the price of  stamped stationery, reflecting  growing development manufac-;  turing and administrative costs,  is announced by the Canada  Post Office. Concurrently, a new  type of stamped mailing envelope is being made available  to the public for the first time.  New envelopes of 4c and 5c  denomination have been enhanced by the inside addition  of a printer design in grey. The  new interior increases the opacity of the envelope and, thus,  assists in the concealment of  contents.  The price of 4c and 5c stamped envelopes goes up by 40c and  44c per hundred, not including  postage, in the No 8 (domestic) and No. 10 (business) sizes,  respectively.  Queen CaroliFi$taZZeei!

Mrs. Philp heads auxiliary  The Pender Harbour Auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital January  24 smorgasbord luncheon at the  Winning Post, Ole's Cove, had  Mrs. W. H. Cotton, regional representative for the Lower Mainland Auxiliaries Division of  BCHA, and her secretary, Mrs.  J. McKenzie as guests. Two new  members and two associate  members were welcomed.  Following the luncheon the  annual meeting heard reports  of executive members and  standing committees revealing a  successful year. Fund-raising  events were a sale of home baking on Garden Bay wharf in  July, which was most appreciated by visitors on boats and local residents, and a family supper on the 30th anniversary in  October. Mrs. B. Warden, past  president (resident) who was  head of the nominations committee, took over the meeting  for the election of officers.  Mrs. W. H. Cotton installed  the 1968 executive: Mrs. D.

In commencing her second  year in office Mrs. Philp thanked the executive and members  for their help during the past  year and asked for their continued support in 1968.  Guests and members enjoyed the magnificent view, and  the sunshine pouring in through  the windows helped to make it  a very pleasant occasion. The  next meeting will be held Wednesday, Feb. 14 at Madeira  Park Medical Clinic at 2 p.m.  OK plebiscite  Last Thursday's Throne  Speech in the B.C. legislature  revealed that the government  has decided to allow a plebiscite for Regional College purposes in the North Shore area  of which the Sunshine Coast is  a part.  The inclusion of this in the  Throne Speech brings to an end  at least two years of deliberations and communications with  the department of education in  Victoria. When the plebiscite  will be held is problematical but  when the date is set it will involve a voting procedure along  the Sunshine Coast.  The first pleiscite it is understood, will be to decide one  question only and that will be  whether the regional college is  wanted by this community.  Second meeting  set by chairman  While municipal councillors were sounding but school board  trustees on what they termed excessive spending, at a special  school board-municipal council meeting last Thursday night, overtones of more spending in order to keep up with school population  were evident.  Superintendent of schools Gordon Johnson informed the board  and councils that with the influx of more grades from the Reserve  school and the fact present construction will not look after requirements, it will be necessary to place a 1968 referendum in order to  be able, to house the school population.  The bone of contention among council members concernYl  teacher over-entitlement, money spent on grounds which could  be used for buildings, the rapid growth of teaching staff compared  to pupil population and what was described as a general over-  expansion in the whole school system.  Members of council  able  to     the supervisory staff above the  be present were Chairman William Swain, and Councillors  Adele deLange, Morgan Thompson and ,Harold Nelson from  Sechelt; Chairman Fred Feeney  and Councillors Wally Peterson,  Gerry Dixon, Ken Crosby and  Clerk Dave Johnston.  Representing the school board  were Chairman Don Douglas,  and Trustees Cliff Thorold, Leo  Johnston, W. H. Malcolm, Norman Hough, Mrs. Labonte and  Mrs. Sheila Kitson with Peter  Wilson, secretary-treasurer and  Superintendent of Schools Gordon Johnson.  Chairman Fred Feeney of  Gibsons in his opening remarks  said the main reason for meeting with the school board was  the rising concern over the tax  structure as it affected village  taxpayers. School board Chairman Don Douglas saidhe" has  arranged to have the councillors at a meeting this Wednesday night when the actual budget for this year can be discussed.  Questions raised involved the  cost of landscaping and preparation of grounds at school  sites, the cost of temporary  school buildings, over-entitlement of the number of teachers  on the staff amounting to 20.3  teachers. Pupil costs which  were regarded as being high  were included also the cost of  nominal teaching staff.  The need for increasing the  size Of Elphinstone gymnasium  was questioned also the fane  Bowen Island was still included in this school district. Board  policy on the construction of  schools was also questioned. It  was also suggested that money  spent on school grounds should  go into new buildings. The cost  of music teaching received attention. The present cost of  $12,000 for a supervisory music  teacher was regarded as too  high.  The jump in the number of  teachers in a three year period  amounting to a 134 percent increase was questioned on the  basis of pupil growth. Secretarial help to principals and  teachers and the board's administration staff- was also ques-  tiohedr     v    '      ���-  Explaining the building program Mr. Wilson mentioned the  plebiscite 8 total was $782,400  which was intended to cover  work at various schools. As a  result of a 27% increase in  one tender and a 17.7% increase  in another and an increase of  $46,200 in an estimate on Gibsons Elementary school construction plus the governmental  freeze on all but urgently necessary type of construction, forced the board to revamp its financing.

More information needed  At the meeting of members of Gibsons and Sechelt municipal  councils with the school board last Thursday night, members of  the councils were there hoping to have some questions answered.  The consensus of councillors present was that questions were answered but the answers did not penetrate the trouble.  There will be a second meeting on the actual budget for this  year. At this meeting questions might get closer to specifics but it  is expected that, with the budget having been decided upon, little  can be done about it at this point.  The budget will be the largest ever put together for this district. To suggest the attitude of councillors on the Sunshine Coast  is an isolated event would be false. The same attitude is expressed  ^by all those involved with provincial and federal governments.  It would appear that the lush days of the big spenders have  reached a peak and the only path for them now is to backtrack  on expenditures. The public generally is calling* loudly for retrenchment. But before school boards can do anything about it, they  have got to receive a better deal from government sources. This  does not necessarily mean more financial handouts but a more definite realization of their problems.  The meeting of councillors with school board members should  have a beneficial effect. Both will learn something but whether  either side will achieve enough satisfaction is problematical No  matter how you look at the situation, the life of a school board  trustee does have its thorny side. The thorns extend to municipal  councillors who have to include the school mill rate in their own  budget. That figure hurts ,and it should be divorced from municipal  affairs as long as councils have no say beyond complaining.  Good going, Sechelt!  .Sechelt people must be beaming with pleasure after reading  their building construction record for 1967. It is the first time since  records have been compiled that Sechelt has surpassed Gibsons.  Gibsons 1067 figure was some $40,000 less than Sechelt's total  but Gibsonites are just as pleased as are Sechelt folk.  ��� The general construction, both residential and commercial for  the year on the Sunshine Coast is encouraging. The fact that 152  new homes were built is a record and the increasing numbers of  homes each year, indicates steady cumulative growth.  While it is true that on the commercial side more than one  million dollars were absorbed in B.C. Ferry Authority construction  and the federal government harbor of refuge at Selma Park, more  than a "quarter of a million dollars went into private commercial  construction. The governmental improvenients will add to the economic future of the district so should not be downgraded.  If Sechelt can keep up the 1967 record it will soon show signs  of bursting at the seams.  A worthy institution  One volunteer organization in Gibsons area deserves a great  deal of credit for the work it is doing. It is Gibsons Public Library!  The library in its early days was housed in various stores or  offices in the village and did not reach the point of self-contained  quarters until the Kiwanis club in 1954 made the library that year's  project. As a result on Nov. 16, 1955 an official opening of the  present library quarters took place. Since then additional space  has been acquired.  Today, as a result of devoted volunteer effort, the library  board operates on a surplus basis and has close to 5,000 volumes  on its shelves. Credit should also be given to individual donors of  money or labor and the Gibsons municipal council which year  after year has equalled the provincial government matching grant  thus giving the volunteer library board members courage to continue their work.  When the library was opened it was regarded by provincial  authorities, as a good example of a small town library, so much so  that the story and picture were used in a UNESCO publication for  world distribution.  Growth of library usage by the public is revealed in the volume of books loaned out during the last four years. In 1964 the  circulation totalled 7,403 and next year it was 8,673, then jumped  to 11,791 in 1966 and for last year was 13,007. The increase is noted  in both adult and juvenile sections. During 1967 only six books failed to find their way back to the library.  The retiring president T. R. Adams and the volunteer staff  that maintained the library under his chairmanship deserve high  commendation for their efforts through the years. The retiring  secretary-treasurer, Mrs. A. Sommers who held that office eight  years received a well-deserved honor from library board members  and from the village council. Board members presented her with  a jewel box and council sent a letter of appreciation for eight  years of service.  Gibsons Public Library has moved along quite nicely with the  growth of the village and area. It operates on an efficient base,  does an excellent job by voluntary effort and deserves the thanks  of the entire community. However, it never has too many volunteers. Would you like to help?  (By ED THOMSON)  1968 promises to be an eventful one for the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country Club and the  progress made since the first  exploratory meeting in 1965 reflects great credit on the small  but determined group that hope  ��� to see the nine-hole golf course  in partial operation at least by  late August of this year.  Reg. Thomas reporting for  the executive committee which  has already held several meetings since the first of the year,  stated plans for the full time  employment of a man to work  on the clean-up and pave the  way for groups of volunteer  work crews who will speed up  the job of clearance as soon  as the weather moderates. Consideration    has    already been  given to the appointment ;of a  grounds-keeper and pro.  The By-laws Committee under the chairmanship of Bernel  Gordon, working along with  Frank Newton, Keith Wright  and Dick Clayton of the ways  and means committee, have  been giving close attention to  the drafting of a workable set  of bylaws taking into consideration of all phases of financial,  membership, and ground rules.  Plans for irrigation of the  course are well advanced and  Roy Taylor, chairman of the  construction committee, who is  responsible for the exceptional  strides in the layout, reports  actual work on the laying of  pipe and sprinkling system, is  expected to begin shortly.  Landscaping is receiving the  attention of Mickey McKay and  is well advanced in the plans  ning stage with valuable assistance received from the forestry department and other agencies. Members will be called  on to take part in an extensive spring tree and shrub  planting bee.  The social committee already  has an eye to establishing the  spring dance that proved so  successful last year as an an  nual  event,   together  with   the  club's fall social -function. 7  Every effort is being made  on the part of the club's executive to widen the scope of  interest in this major project,  not only for its own membership but as a potential attraction   for  the   summer   tourists.  The importance of this was  stressed in a recent article in  the Vancouver Province which  reports the club at Roberts  Creek called the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country club is a  nine-hole layout of 2,843 yards,  par 35 and full advantage has  been taken of rich outcroppings  of rock. It will be seeded this  spring and it is expected will  be open for play in August..  there are lakes as hazards and  the greens have been graded tc  prevent flooding, says the  article.  There are already more than  200 members in the club and  much of the work on the course  has been done by volunteers.  Surveys show that a nine-hole  course will be adequate for the  district for the next ten years,  though some ardent golfers  have in the past taken the ferry  to Horseshoe, Bay at weekends  arid driven as far as TMission  for a game of golf.  The president is Frank Newton and Vice-President is 7 Keith  Wright.  COIN-IN-SLOT DRIVING  It costs Vancouver's George  Federuk more for his driving  than it does most motorists,  according to Canadian Automotive Trade. Federuk's car  won't start until he drops a  coin into a box on the instrument panel. It's part of a car  thief-proofing scheme ex-RCMP  officer Federuk has invented.  If you fail to pay in advance  before the ignition switch is  turned on, the horn starts blowing. And the alarm system also  operates if anyone tampers  with the car's doors, hood or  trunk lid.

COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  A map showing desireable  parking areas along the highway in Gibsons was sent to the  department of public works  for approval.  Elphinstone Co-op shareholders at the annual meeting were  informed 1947 had not been a  good one and there would be  no  dividend.   ���  Sechelt's Teen Town society  reports it now has a membership totalling 32 with plenty of  social events lined up.  Heavy ice was reported on  Secret Cove preventing fish  boats from docking at the  floats.  The annual meeting of the  vestry of St. Aidan's Anglican  church at Roberts Creek advocated that women be eligible  for election to the Synod.  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Board of Trade discussed and referred to the executive committee for action  a suggestion of street; names  and house numbers for the village. ...-.-  The number of telephones in  use in the Sunshine Coast area  expanded from 87 in 1947 to  more than 1,500 in early 1958.  Commemorating the 1958 provincial Centennial, Gibsons  Centennial committee planned  orr a July 1 celebration and the  purchase of more land to increase the size of Brothers  Memorial Park. W. I. McAfee  was chairman.  Names of 56 women were  published as members of canvassing teams to take part in  the Kinsmen club polio drive,  for funds.  TREES GET OLD, TOO  Even though a tree will continue to grow7 in height and  diameter untilYit dies, it does  so at a much slower rate when  it  enters old age   or becomes  "overmature."

This cry gets the action every Tuesday and Thursday night  in the activity rooms of Gibsons and Roberts Creek Elementary  schools when many of the community's young adults battle it out  over the volley ball net.  The games started with a small nucleus of young people organized by Mr. Budd MacKenzie, School District No. 46 Special  Counsellor. The program under the auspices of the adult education  department, began with only six people at Gibsons Elementary  Schol. It grew to 20 then to 30 participants and then expanded in  early January to Roberts Creek where about 10 people are currently playing.  The above picture taken by Terry Kruz shows Sandy Davidson,  Royleen Nygren, J. D. Earle and D. L. McCauley in action.  The need for night time recreation for young adults sparked the  School Board's support of these activities.

Many suggestions have been  made to prevent it, but none  vis foolproof, says The Canadian  Medical Association.  We   have   known  for a   long  time  that   coronary  artery, di-  Scouts have  new program  The Boy Scouts of Canada  will introduce a new program  this>-year for boys in the 11 to  14 age range. Greater emphasis  will be placed upon a more  boy-centred approach with the  content being adaptable to the  needs of individuals and situations instead of expecting individuals to conform to fixed  programs. The restated aims,  promise, law, objectives and  badge awards were boy-tested  for two years in-specific control areas throughout Canada,  validating the wants of today's  youth toy providing appealing  and meaningful activities.  Twenty-two Scouters, representing the provincial council  for B.C. and the Yukon, recently attended a National  Workshop the purpose of which  was to increase the understanding of the reasons for change,  to develop a conceptual understanding of the new Boy Scout  program. Sunshine Coast Scouters are showing an interest in  this program.  sease is more common in people who are very much overweight ��� obese. As a result  there has been great interest  in the matter of diet: whether  the eating of certain foods  might cause and aggravate  coronary disease, and whether  as it appears, a high fat diet  makes a person more likely to  toecome a victim.  During the past 10 years  there has been more medical  interest about factors which  have nothing to do -with diet.  Extensive studies on the smoking of cigarettes seem to indicate that the habit is a very  important factor. The person  who has had coronary disease  can reduce the risk of further  trouble by  stopping  smohking.  The CM. A. reports that  studies are being made of the  relationship between exercise,  or the lack of it, and coronary  artery disease. It is believed  that people who take regular  exercise, or through their jobs  keep physically fit, are less  likely to have coronary artery  disease. It is also felt that a  person who has had a coronary  attack might be less likely to  have further trouble if he participates in a carefully planned program of exercise.  NOTICE    (y;  R.

This is outlined' in his  new book entitle* Challenge of  Confidence.  Reading his book one immediately senses that Mr. Kierans  is a Canadian nationalist. He  stands, in his own words, for  a clear, independent and distinct Canadian identity. This dis  tinct identity would of course  be buttressed by a greater degree of national unity. The aspirations of Quebec, he believes  are important. But they can be  accommodated within a new  federal state of our own making.  His proposals for a new division of powers between Ottawa and the provinces are interesting. The federal government should be largely responsible for economic growth.

The approximately 200  items, collected by Mr. and  Mrs. S. K. Baker and formerly  on display in their Lytton cafe,  are mostly tools made and  used in the Lytton area.  They include adze blades  and some of the blocks of jadite  from which they were made,  stone hand mauls which were  used by prehistoric Indians as  hammers, stone and bone arrow and spear points and pipes,  The most unusual item is a  figurine. This figurine, made of  soapstone, is of a small seated  human holding a bowl.  The woman who sews also  can make clothing for her  family from wash-wear cottons.  Here are some suggestions for  sewing with these new fabrics:  -When buying wash-wear cotton piece goods, check to see  that the fabric is woven so that  the threads cross each other  at right angles.

Before sewing the garment on your machine, experiment with fabric pieces. Hold  the fabric securely with both  hands, and stitch at a slow,  even speed.

The provinces, meanwhile,  should direct their attention towards what he calls meeting  the real heeds of the people ���  superior education, health care,  housing and social security.  In developing his blueprint for  constitutional change Mr. Ker-  ans ��� faces an ancient Canadian  dilemma. How can the federal  government, being solely responsible for monetary, fiscal  and trade policy, really do its  job if it is to turn over to the  provinces all of the great social  spending programs together  with the tax resources necessary to finance them?  Really he is inconsistent for  he says, in one place, that responsibility for overall economic  policy cannot possibly be divided; it must definitely remain  with the federal government.  In another he says that provincial participation, without taking away from that responsibility, can enrich and fortify federal policy making.  Eric Kierans is a confident  Canadian. He believes that Canadians have the ability to own  and manage their own industries. He would have them trade  freely both at home and abroad.  What Mr. Kierans does object  to is the interference of foreign governments in our own  Canadian affairs. He has objected to U.S. government guidelines in the past. And one can  rest assured that if Mr. Kierans  ever becomes Prime Minister  he will do his utmost to offset  President Johnson's directives  to American firms operating in  this country.  Erie Kierans likes to be boss.  This was true when he was  running his own business, di-  ecting the School of Commerce  at McGill, presiding over the  Montreal Stock Exchange or  heading up two government departments. It all depends on  where the action is. And, looking at his record, I would say  that, his views about the federal government's role in shaping  Canada's future could change.  They could change depending  on whether he becomes Canada's first minister or not!  Likes cities  Barrie Zwicker, former Coast  News employee and how education reporter on the Toronto  Globe and Mail has written an  article which has been pub1? shed in the United Church Observer. It details his desires  to live in the thick of city life  in preference to suburban life.  His article states he is married and has two children, a  daughter aged three and ? ���t  18 months old. He views living  in a city and rearing a family  there not as a plight but as a  challenge which can result in n  fuller life for his children than  they can get in suburbia.

The budget totals $72,050,  made up from a $6,500 surplus,  $11,000 in government grants  and $19,360 revenue including  $1,000 building inspection revenue and $18,360 from garbage  collection and disposal services  in all areas except Pender Harbour district which turned down  the service in an election day  vote.  Subtracting the 1967 surplus,  revenue to come and government grants the net cost will be  $35,190 with 89.07 percent coming from regional electoral areas or $32,322; 6.69 percent or  $1,753 from Gibsons municipality and 4.25 percent or $1;115  fromf; Sechelt municipality. The  municipalities provide administrative funds allowing them to  take part in area general planning.   ���-.���;���������  Expenditure will include $39,-  600 for general government, including   executive,   administration and planning expenditures.  The building inspection department costs were set at $8800 and  garbage dumps,  collection and  taxpayer rolls will cost $23,650.  Director J. C. Gilker will be  the regional board's representative on the Sunshine Coast Recreation    commission.     Gibsons  and Sechelt Chambers of Commerce requests for a grant to  aid  in  their work was  turned  down because  the board operates  within  the  Municipal Act  which    does    not . allow    such  grants. A Pender Harbour Cham  ber   of  Commerce  request   for  attendance   of  the   building  inspector at a  chamber meeting  to  discuss building regulations  was approved.  As regards Indian leased  lands the board will enquire  from the minister what works  and services lease-holders on  Indian land can expect in return  for the general taxation levied.  In his monthly report on Re- ^  gional District operations, Clerk  Charles^ Gooding   reported   as  follows:  Garbage Disposal:  Authorization in  principle has been received for the Gibsons site and  the necessary fees paid. I would  suggest that as soon as the new  committees  are appointed that  the   garbage   committee   consider the matter of clearing and  preparation.   There   is   no   further information on the Pender  Harbour site which is at present being re-surveyed. If there  is   no  answer  from  the   lands  department to my recent letter  by the end of the month I will  write a repeat request for permission to go ahead with clearing.  Water Supply: Our engineer,  Mr. Martin Dayton, visited the  office on Jan. 10. He has requested us to ask the water resources branch (federal) to send '*  an engineer and advise on the  position of the flow; recording  gear on Chapman Creek. I have  written to the water resources  branch on this matter. Mr. Dayton is working on the survey and  he will have an instrument man  over here in February obtaining some of the detailed information required.

The intent was to spend the  bulk of the money on one or  two sites to bringthem as close  to standard ,as possible, rather  than scattering small amounts  among numerous sites, other  than minimum upkeep.  Contracts were, in fact, signed in 1967 for site work at:  Langdale $24,235  Gibsons $34,892  This utilized referendum and  budget funds.
