Another complaint offered is  that they were hired through  the civil service commission  which should have some control  over them now. However the  personnel manager of the Ferry  Authority gave them their notices.  According to reports many of  those remaining with the service  may have to take demotions  with less pay and also be transferred to other points of operation' in the system.  The petition, when completed,  will be sent to Hon. Isabel Dawson, minister without portfolio  in Victoria. It reads:  Petition ��� without prejudice:  We the wives of the employees of B.C.

As early as 1940 the Institute  organized the Sunshine Poultry  club, which functioned for/many  years, to be followed with" or*  . ganization of the 4-H Calf Club,  and more recently a Lamb club.  The    privilege    enjoyed    by  youthful members was participation in competitions at local  Fall Fairs, as well as the PNE  competitions in Vancouver. Interests have changed in latter  years,   resulting   in   numerous  saddle horses being stabled between   Langdale   and   Madeira  Park. A local horse club is now  functioning, with outside talent  available for riding instruction.  The institute is interested in  assisting   these   youngsters   in  whatever way possible.  Hence  an appeal has been presented to  trustees of Brothers Memoorial  Park to consider an agricultural building where not only fall  fairs could be held; but various  types of activity, iricuding- horse  shows and riding competition.  became an officer apprentice  aboard the full-rigged ship Cambrian Princess.

Later he also became  partner and managing director  of the Far East Salvage Association operating on the China  coast.  In 1936, due to troubled times  in the far east, he decided to  return to Canada with his family, settling in Sydney, Nova  Scotia. From 1940 until his retirement in 1963, he was harbor  master and port warden for the  port of Sydney. Following his  retirement, he and his wife settled in West Sechelt, where they  made many friends.

R.G.CRICHTON  of Pender Harbour who received an award of merit presented  to those persons who have given  their time, support and leadership during the two years of  Centennial' celebrations in British Columbia. He has also been  conferred with *a federal Centennial medal in recognition of  his valuable service to the nation. He was appointed chairman of the Pender Harbour  Centennial committee in October of 1965.  ing,7 was filled with smoke, he  immediately got his wife and  three children, Jerry 9, Patrick  7 and Gwendoline 5 out of the  house and ran to a neighboring  home and sent in the alarm.  How the fire got started is not  known.'  Recounting his experiences,  Mr. McConnell said he managed to escape with his pants.  The rest of the family were in  their  nightclothes.  Equipment from the North  road and Gibsons firehalls responded. Mr. McConnell praised  the firemen for the way they  worked and said he had never  seen men work so hard in trying to   quell  the fire.  At one point the tank truck  ran out of water but it was replenished quickly at a nearby  creek: but the fire had too big  a hold. The family is now liv-  ;ng in the old McLean home  near their burnt out home.  Aided by Mrs. Charles Mandelkau who some time ago experienced a complete loss of a  home by fire, local helpers contacted the Red Cross in Vancouver which immediately offered necessary help. Neighbors, friends and others have  contributed what they could  and the vacant old McLean  home near the fire destroyed  home, was opened for the fire  victims  by Mrs.  McLean.  Mrs. Mandelkau has advised  the Coast News that persons  desiring to donate usable articles for the burned-out family,  can leave them at the Shell  Service station in Gibsons.  A GOOD  SHIP  A marine visitor for about an  hour Sunday afternoon to Gibsons waterfront was the $500,-  000 Canada 100, a west coast  type seiner, built to be used on  the Atlantic coast.  Commissioned Saturday at  Coal Harbour it made one of  its first ports of call Sunday at  Gibsons and after about one  hour stood out in deep water  where equipment was tested.  The Martin Fishing, New  Brunswick, Ltd., are its owners. It was built at Benson Brothers shipyard and is of 250 ton  capacity, steel-hulled and 100  feet over all.  cern at the ever-increasing  school board budgets. Both  councils are working with each'  other  through   their   chairmen.  Sechelt's Chairman William'  Swain and Gibsons Chairman-  Fred Feeney have conferred on  the subject with members of  council to see what can be  done.  Municipal councils generally  have felt themselves baffled as  regards what to do about school  board budgets. At the same  time it is their duty to collect  the school tax ��� and accept  the blame for high taxes when  such are paid over the counter..  Last year's school tax for the  entire school district totalled  $1,312,368 of which the major  portion was obtained from the  population outside of the two  villages. Sechelt provided 3.50%  and Gibsons 5.58%. The mill  rate for school taxes was 30.63.  Municipal tax rates were 19.17  for Gibsons and 10 mills for  Sechelt.  Municipal councils all over  the province have during past  years battled through the B.C.  Union of Municipalities, to be  placed in a better postion as  regards school board ibudgets.  The general objection has been  against the practice of placing  councils in the position of being collectors of taxes over  which they have no control.  For municipal councils to  register a protest of sufficient  strength to call for arbitration  proceedings it can become a  costly action as the entire  school board budget must then  go to arbitration which could  become a time consuming job.  tia��uu\imnwwuuiuwwuwTOmumm��mmuuumi\iumu..j  FIREARMS COMPLAINT  Gibsons RCMP have received.  a complaint fii>m Gower Point  area concerning the use of a  gun by a juvenile.

There will be three new chairmen, for Gibsons council, the Regional District board and the school board.  New or experienced, they face a year of tight circumstance  economically and will be forced to act carefully regardless of what  they may think about the way their predecessor operated.  All three units, councils, school board and the Regional District  board face a stringent year in view of the general tight economic  situation. What will be done will be through necessity and local  politics will have little bearing on what can be achieved.  The school board is faced with building problems of a severe  nature. Gibsons council, having completed its water program, will  venture towards sewerage but the availability of ready money  will be a problem.  The council at Sechelt if it continues on its present ten mill  rate will not have much leeway beyond necessary maintenance.  The Regional District will have garbage collection and disposal  as its chore for the first half of the year at least. Other problems  will crop up.  The taxation picture is still obscure but it would appear there  will be a definite school tax increase due to the 7.62% salary boost  for the teaching staff. Municipally it is not expected there win be  much of an increase. The Regional District might increase slightly  due to the fact it will be its first full year of operation; its tax  requirements last year covered nine months only.  Growth of the area is shown clearly in the school budget increases. Take 1947 for instance, the first year of the present school  district,, expenditure totalled $89,106. Ten years later, 1957, it  reached $498,199 and in another ten years, 1967, it hit roughly  $1,580,806. School population was 740 in 1947; 1,423 in 1957 and 2 225  in 1967. '  It should be remembered in comparing those figures above  that inflationary considerations must not.,be overlooked. With 1949  equalling 100 the inflation which has taken place requires $150  today to equal $1 of 1949.  Demands of the education system from parents, teachers educationalists generally are such that financing has become a serious  problem and coupled with the school building freeze which is compounding costs tp the ratepayer, the hope of keeping a reasonably  steady budget is unimaginable.  To think school board problems are confined to the Sunshine  Coast is unfair. The entire B.C. education system from top to bottom requires some sorting out. Education is reaching upwards in  all directions and the provincial government is looking away from  it. Something must give. Will it have to be the students'  One of the most modern and  efficient sewage treatment systems in British Columbia is now  in service at Gold River, Vancouver Island.   The   plant   will  provide  what  is  known as  secondary   treatment,   a   form   of  treatment that is in use in only  half  a   dozen   other  B.C.   communities.   Gold   River   will   be  the   only   community   on   Vancouver   Island   that   treats   all  its sewage in a system of this  type.  The treatment system, built  at a cost of about $200,000, was  designed by Associated Engineering Services Ltd. of Vancouver, consultants on municipal 'services at the instant  town nine miles from the Tahsis  Company Ltd's new 750-ton  pulp mill, and is being built as  part of Tahsis Company's overall concern over air and wa-  ter^pollutian.  The plant will be capable of  serving a town of about 10,000.  Gold River >is expected to have  2,000 residents next June' when  the Gold River pulp mill 7 is  scheduled to go into production.: It. is expected to reachfa  population of 5,000 by 1975.   ��  The plant will prevent pollution of the Gold River. It is  designed to be capable of removing up to 90 percent of the  suspended solids in the town's  sewage. Untreated sewage contains on the average about 200  parts per million of suspended  solids. At 90 percent removal  efficiency, the effluent from the  's modern sewage disposal unit  Gold River plant would contain  ���only about 20 parts per million  of suspended solids.  In its natural state the Gold  River, a clean stream, contains  between   12   and   20   parts   per  million of suspended solids.  So  the -'��� effluent    being    released  from  the ���   sewage     treatment  plant will contain approximately   the   same   amount   of   suspended solids  as  the  river itself    does.    When the effluent  flow is diluted by the river, the  increase in    suspended    solids  will not be measurable.  Similarly, the plant will be  capable of removing on the  average between 75 and 95 per-?  cent of what is known as the  biochemical oxygen demand  (BOD) of the sewage (depending on the method of operation). This means that when the  effluent is mixed with river water its claim on the oxygen dissolved in the river will be  negligible, leaving plenty of dissolved oxygen to support normal river life, including game  fish.  ;>, The .sewage treatment system  ^as, been approved by the B.C.  f health department. It, has also  been accepted 'by the federal  fisheries department. The plant  is basically what is known as  an activated sludge type of  treatment system! /  In the beginning, until the  town's population reaches 5,-  000, it will be operated as an  extended aeration process, one  variation  of  the  basic  system.  After thati it will become what  is known as a contact stabiliza-  t'on type of plant, another variation.  In the extended aeration type  of system, the sewage is collected in an aeration tank  which  contains  in  the  aerated  "mixed   liquor"   a   culture   of  organisms    that    breaks down  the organic solids.  From this tank, the sewage  moves into a settling tank. The  liquids are drawn off and, after  (Continued   on   Page   3)  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  ���^"^���^^'���^���������^���'^���,w*S<��!S^P_i__i__��E^OBP*i____^3-���2?^-r-?* 1 *f_\  Gibsons Ratepayers association elected Ben Knight as  president for a third term.

He also;  says I could never come home  again if I did leave.  Can you  help me at all?  A. There is no such thing in  law as a temporary separation.'  Either a married couple are  separated or they are not. If  a wife deserts her husband, he  does not have to support her.  If a husband deserts his wife,  he must support her. The per-'  son who actualy walks out the  door is not necessarily the deserting party. ���'���������������  Our law recognizes construc-i  tive desertion.

Incompatibility of temperament  or the inability to endure the  ordinary irritations of married  life does not justify desertion.  You did not state the exact  cause of.your disagreement. *  In any event, the husband  must support the children and  the wife is not obliged to go to  work. If, however, the wife has  deserted the husband, and she  has a separate income, this  may be taken into consideration in assessing how much the  husband has to pay.  Regarding your coming home  again. If the matrimonial home  consists of a house and you  are a joint owner, you may  come and go as you please.  You and your husband should  make up your minds, one way  or the other and if you agree  to separate, enter into a written separation agreement covering the division of your property and how much he is to  pay for the support of you and  the two children. If he deserts,  he must support you and the  children and you would be entitled to at least one-half his  income if you' desert, he must  pay you a reasonable sum for  the support of the children until they are eighteen.

The Gold River plant is supplied by Smith and Loveless of  Oakville, Ont. It consists of an  aeration tank, an aerobic sludge  digester and a settling tank.  The plant measures 69 feet in  diameter and has a water depth  of about 15 feet.  The Gold River sewage disposal system includes two  sludge lagoons each 110 feet  square and capable of receiving waste sludge to a depth  of six feet. Gold River's first  subdivision of 44 homes���which  has been on a septic tank since  it was occupied last October ���  will be cut into the new sewage  disposal system.  1937 muclt  James Skinner, son of Mr.  and Mrs. Donald Skinner, South  Fletcher Road, while , cleaning  out the basement of their recently acquired home pulled  out a copy of the Vancouver  Daily Province dated August 27,  1937.  The edition was in a good  state of preservation after 31  years in its hideaway, and'  tfears the : mail sticker addressed to James Bradish, a former  owner of the South Fletcher address.   7.  The news of that day included an account of the bombing  of Nanking by the Japanese in  which the British ambassador  to; China, Sir Hughe KnatchtouU  Hugessen was on the danger  list as one of the victims of the  raid. The raid which devastated  a large area of China's national  capital, caused 500" killed and  many more, mostly civilians,  wounded,'.: a merciless air attack an_i a prelude to five years  later, the bombing of Pearl  Harbour.  The Spanish Civil war in  which the arsenals of the great  powers were given a preliminary tryout. was in * its final  throes with the trapped remnants of the Loyalist army; 115-  000 strong surrounded by Franco's victorious columns. The  main body of loyalist Gen. Ga-  miz Uribarri's army was routed and cut to pieces in the final  nationalist assault on Santan-  der.  Lord Shaughnessy, tlien a director of the CPR took time out  to visit the drought areas of  Saskatchewan to report the victims facing their problems with  indomitable courage in spite of  the terrible effects of the  drought on farm crops. They  will never accept defeat, Lord  Shaughnessy declared, however much the odds against  them. Time alone proved the  prophetic accuracy of his statement.

Lowest return claimed  Improvements in the B.C.  teachers' pension plan, to bring  benefits more in line with teachers in other provinces, are being sought by the B.C. Teachers' Federation. A delegation  from the federation met with  tlie provincial cabinet Monday  to present the teachers' case.  BCTF president; Robert Buzza, of YBurnaby, who led the  delegation, ^aid the present  teachers' pension plan offers  the lowest return of any teachers' pension plan in Canada for  long-service -career teachers.  The., teachers are seeking the  following improvments in the  planYY    YY ������������'���.���  -Pension rates  comparable to  those  in  the. civil  service  and  other teacher plans across Canada- ; ������������_���_,.   /   ;     .      '  Improvements     designed    to  make the pensions more closely related to the actual salary.  Reduction in the penalties  levied for early retirement.  Buzza said that the average  B.C. teacher retiring with 30 to  35 years service now qualifies  for a monthly allowance of $275  per month. If he elects a joint  life benefit under which he and  his wife receive a pension until  their deaths, the amount would  be $200 per month.  These pensions are considerably below those received by  teachers in other provinces with  similar service in the profession, Buzza said.  The federation, in its submisr  sion to the cabinet, noted that  the teachers' pension fund has  now reached $130 million and is  growing at the rate of $12 mil-  1'on a,year.-  SUNSHINE COAST REAL ESTATE  EWART McMYNN  REALTY & INSURANCE  OFFICE   PHONES  886-2166 and 886-2248  MEMBER:  MULTIFILE LISTING SERVICE  106 ft. waterfront to best sand  beach, 3 bedroom bungalow in  goodYcondition,- 1.47 acres sun-  7nv slope. $16,900. 3 ways to  i finance: Cash, Cash to 6%%  porterage, or ;$6000 down, bal  at 9%, $140 month.

Letters to editor  Editor: What is the matter  with Canadians as far as marine engineers are concerned?  Not too' long ago it was necessary that, an executive of  B.C.'Ferry Authority go to the  United Kingdom to recruit engineers.  Now Canadian engineers are  being laid off or demoted to  lower positions. In a number of  cases the men who have been  demoted are told their new positions will be at some other  terminal.  All these men are being asked  to answer telegrams right away  as to whether or not they accept these positions or prefer  termination. But all engineers  recruited from the U.K. are being offered alternate positions  with no drop in wages and their  relocation expenses paid. This  is a lot more than is being offered to Canadian engineers.  Would England do las' much  for Canadian engineers?  ���Mrs. B.

She also'gave  a few suggestions for parents  who wish to aid the child at  home.  The next meeting of the auxiliary will be held on the first  Tuesday in March, when another interesting program will  be arranged.  Mr. and Mrs. J. S.

This applies to textiles and  if you're expecting 100 percent  cotton performance, be sure  the article is marked all cotton or 100 percent cotton.  Tags may also bear information on special finishes which  may have been applied to the  fabrics. Here are descriptions  of four finishes commonly used  on modern cottons.  Chlorine-resistant ��� A chemical treatment has been used  to prevent damage and yellowing which may occur when  resin-treated fabrics are bleached with chlorine-type bleaches.  Wash-wear cottons with this  laibel may be bleached with  chlorine-type bleaches. Otherwise, peroxide or non-chlorine  organic-type bleaches should be  used.  Crease-resistant ��� A finish  has been applied to minimize  wrinkling and to help it recover  rapidly from wrinkling. Cottons  treated for crease���or wrinkle-  resistance need only steam  pressing.  Pre-Shrunk ��� This means the  fabric has undergone a mechanical or chemical process to  prevent shrinkage. Cottons  meeting highest standards  shrink less than one percent.  Wash-wear ���  These  cottons  have been chemically    treated  so they require little or no ironing. They may be labeled wash-  wear; no-iron, drip-dry, or minimum    care.    Properly finished  wash-wear cottons are not heat  sensitive and,    like    untreated  cottons, may be washed in hot  water. They also may be dried  in a dryer at high temperature.  Wash-wear    cottons    dry more  quickly than untreated cottons.  If  touch-up   ironing   is   necessary, a warm iron is sufficient.  No starching is required.

Would it be proper for me  to give a birthday party for  myself?  A. Not unless you want to  give the impression that you  are soliciting gifts. If you really want to give a party, extend your invitations without  mentioning the fact that it is  your birthday. Then later during the party you can make  the big announcement.  Q. Is it all right for the  bridegroom to give his bride  something for their home as  his special wedding gift to her?  A. While not exactly wrong,  this is not customary. His special gift should really be something personal ��� usually  jewelry of some kind.  Q. If a man dates a girl who  is driving her own car, should  he pay for the gasoline?  A. He should certainly make  some move in this direction ���  a suggestion that they stop at  a service station for some fuel  for the car.

He will be a lecturer at the 11th annual symposium organized by the British  Columbia     Heart     Foundation  types overweight!  He is noticeably overweight;  he smokes more than a pack  of cigarettes a day; his blood  cholesterol level is above normal; he has high blood pressure. This unfortunate fellow  is a likely candidate for a coronary heart attack,- the B.C.  Heart Foundation says. It does  not. follow, of course, that a  slim, non-smoking woman with  low iblood fats and no hypertension cannot have a heart  attack.  It does mean that each of  the unfortunate factors listed  is known to be associated with  Canada's leading killer, heart  attack, and that the more factors present in one person, the  higher his risk. The basis for  this sharply defined portrait of  the coronary-prone human is  not the result of subjective  guess-work. It is, instead, a  statistically valid finding from  a research project that has been  underway since 1949 in Fram-  ingham, Massachusetts.  In that year 5,000 men and  women were selected at random and given extremely thorough physical examinations.  They are being closely followed ��� with frequent re-examinations ��� for a total of 20 years.  While the data are not yet  complete, an analysis by the  experts of the information collected to date gives a pretty  clear composite picture of those  who have^ had heart attacks  among the 5,000.  The typical victim is ah obese  cigarette smoking man with  high cholesterol and hypertension.  A high cholesterol level presents a tougher problem. Despite earlier claims, no drug  has yet been found which can  safely and ... certainly reduce  blood fats in all patients.  But there is increasing evidence that diets which replace  saturated (largely animal) fats  with polyunsaturated fats  (mostly fish and certain types  of. vegetable oils) are quite  helpful"in this regard.'  As to high blood pressure, m  most people it can be lowered  and controlled with appropriate  treatment, of ten including medication and diet. Here it is  necessary that the job be done  under the supervision of a  physician.  noting: it as never too late to  One final point is well worth  start a risk reduction effort.  Statistics have shown clearly  that the cigarette smoker who  quits reduces his coronary  risk down almost to the level  of the man who never smoked;  life insurance companies lower  premiums for the former fat  man when he returns to normal  weight; and the death rate  from hypertension among middle-aged men fell 50 percent  between 1950 and 1962.  It may seem strange that  anyone Should find these facts  heartening, yet in a way they  are. For it should be noted  that, with one exception, all  the factors which make our  man such a strong candidate  for a coronary are either preventable,   curable  or treatable.  Our candidate cannot, of  course, help being man. He is  stuck with his sex, and statistics     indicate     unquestionably  that men suffer coronarics  much more frequently than women, at least until the latter  reach the menopause. But .there  is no reason under the sun why  our candidate should remain  obese. The weight of even the  fattest man can be brought  down to a healthy level and  kept there.  But it should be done only  under the guidance of a physician. Starvation diets or other  fad methods: of losing weight,  practiced on a do-dt-yourself  basis, can be dangerous. No;  body should pretend that it is  easy for the long-time heavy  cigarette smoker to shuck his  habit. But it can be done, and  the large number who have  stopped attest to that fact.  Here, again, the help of a doctor may be needed. Others  have been assisted in this rugged test of will-power by group  therapy clinics. Others just  stop.  New ship-shore jphones  Six new international maritime mobile radio transmitters  will be installed this year along  British Columbia's coast to expand and improve ship-to-shore  radiotelephone service, the B.C.  Telephone Company announces.  At the same time, alterations  costing $39,000 will be .made at  the company's Lulu Island  radio transmitter to improve  AM radio ship-to-shore links.  Gordon F. MacFarlane, B.C.  Telephone's vee-president of  operations, said the installations are necessary to meet an  increasing requirement for  ship-to-shore traffic in the company's  radiotelephone  service.  He said more than 5,000  marine vessels plying B.C.'s  coastal waters now are connected with the regular telephone  network through B.C. Telephone's ship-to-shore radiotelephone facilities, including four  existing international maritime  mobile channels. More than 15,-  000 calls from these vessels  are handled each, month through  the radiotelephone switchboard  in Vancouver.  B.C.

Single men  accident prone  The attached figures, compiled from material supplied to  superintendents of insurance,  shows the frequency and cost  of third party accidents for  various classes of drivers. The  figures represent damage to  other people, their cars or p"i-  perty. They do not reflect the  cost of. damage to the driver's  own car.  The figures are collected en  a cross-Canada basis and represent the years 1964, 1965 and  1966.  These figures show that:  A car driven to work is, on  the average, 20 to 30 percent  more likely to cause an accident than one which is not.  A car which is driven by a  person (or family) who has  had an accident in the past  year is 30 to 70 percent more  likely to cause an accident  than one driven by a person  who has not had an accident  for three or more years. The  accident will cost, on the average, up to $135 more.  A car which is driven principally by a single man under  25 with no years accident free  is ZlA times as likely to cause  an accident as one driven by  a man over 25, without accidents, who doesn't drive to  work. The accident will cost  about $250 more.  Even the best drivers have  accidents. Fifty-one out of  every thousand best drivers  will have an accident, for  which their insurance company  will pay. within the next year.  Single men under 25 who  drive their own cars cause 50  percent more accidents \$\2ir\  married men under 25.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886-3622 8       Coast News, Jan. 18, 1967.
