 Provirifflial  Library��  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number  48,  Dec.   14, 1967.  10c per copy  Election  With three new trustees present at Monday night's school  board meeting, the 1967 board  of trustees, came to the conclusion that a plebiscite for more  school rooms by 1969 will have  to go before the public early  next year.  Reason for the conclusion was  a report placed before the  board by Gordon E. Johnson,  district superintendent. This report recommended four more  classrooms for Gibsons Elementary School, eight classrooms, a  full sized library and an activity room for Sechelt Elementary school and two more rooms  on the present site or elsewhere  for Madeira Park Elementary  school.    '...'.-���'.  The report suggested the possibility of a hew primary school  for Gibsons area and thp need  for further space in Elphinstone Secondary school by 1071  which would mean six to eight  more classrooms or teaching  areas.  He spoke of the need for a  referendum in 1968. He asked  the question can we predict, 8O0  students for Elphinstone by 1971  arid answered it by stating he  thought this probable. The  school has a capacity of 620  students now. He based his conclusion on the present school  district pupil, population without  allowing for a general population increase.  As considerations he offered  the  following:  What is, or should be, the  maximum size  of ^Elphinstone?  At what point do we consider  a junior secondary school, in  the Sechelt area, rather than  add, to Elphinstone?  Should our long range plan  consider a senior secondary  school at Sechelt, in the geographical centre of '.our district, with grade 11 and 12 pupils commuting to such from  Gibsons and Pender Harbour?  Such - a plan might mean that  Elphinstone and ', Pender Harbour become junior secondary  schools, feeding one senior secondary at Sechelt. Figures for  1971 indicate 477 in grades 8 to  10, not enough to use it to its  620 pupil capacity. 1  When the new addition to Gibsons iscompleted* and if we do  not add at Langdale, and if we  demolish the old building, and  get rid of the portables, we  have a case for three or four  new classrooms at Gibsons by  1971. Should they be added to  the present Gibsons school?  Probably not, a 669 pupil school  is big enough! Has the time  come, then, to plan for a second elementary school in the  Gibsons area? Where should it  gency tneeting  on sewage  A situation arising from sew  age problems in Squamish bears  a warning for the municipalities  of Gibsons and- Sechelt. The  warning was given.at an emergency- meeting of the"* Coast-Garibaldi Union Board of Health in  Gibsons Health Centre on Monday of last week.. \.  As a result of this meeting,  the board's chairman Dr. P. J.  Reynolds, was directed to write  Hon. Wesley Black, minister of  health, under whom the new  sewage disposal regulations operate, requesting his help in obtaining necessary funds for the  district to construct a ��� sewer  system. Copies of the letter will  be sent to-other government departments and to Hon. Isabel  Dawson, MLA for this riding.  The situation as explained to  the emergency meeting involves  the water table and regulations  outlining where and how sewage disposal units can be placed and constructed.  Dr. Reynolds read a report  given at a council meeting in  Squamish Nov. 28. The report  was drawn up in 1950 by a public health engineer from Victoria describing area as lying  on the delta lands of the Squamish River. The ground is very  flat with consequent poor drainage. The site of the village is  on a deposit of clay 4^ feet  thick below which is a bed Of  sand and-gravel. In winter.the  water table rises to the surface and in summer only drops  to a depth of 3^ feet.  The area is protected by dikes  but in winter, at high tide, particularly if there is a south  wind, the sea overtops the dikes.  The new regulations refer primarily to water course level of  not less than four feet at any  time. He stressed that many existing sewer disposal systems  do not conform to the regulations and these systems constitute a danger to public health.  He further stated that no permits could be issued where the  requirements of the regulations  are not met.  As a result of this it may well  be that erection of buildings  within certain areas of the municipality will cease. The incidence of infectious hepatitis in  Squamish is of epidemic proportions, The only satisfactory  solution is a sanitary sewer system designed and installed by a  competent engineer,  the report  stated.  ISquamish will send a deputation to Victoria to "see the ministers of health and "finance *  Mr. H*. B.1" Catlin, senior public health inspector, reported on  the alternate methods of sewage disposal He stated that  while the addition of porous fill  to certain areas of Squamish  may be a satisfactory method  of complying with the regulations, this should not be permitted in the low area. In Brac-  kendale fill might be a solution  due to lower population density and lower ground water levels. Mr. Catlin felt that the  Health unit would be justified  in refusing permits in the lower  area even whe'n porous fill is  added because effluent would  still easily'enter the water table arid find its way into the  roadside ditches, and the determination of the necessary  amount of fill, if in fact, fill  were permitted would be very  difficult if not impractical. In  many areas water levels are  affected by tide levels.  Mr. Catlin showed the board  photographs taken of effluent  running in open ditches. Characteristic sewage bloom was  very evident in the pictures.  Councillor Barr spoke of the  economic progress * of Squamish  and pointed out that now they  have no alternative but to forego issuing building permits in  some areas. -  Dr. Reynolds said that he  would write to the municipality expressing support of the  Coast-Garibaldi Union Board of  Health.  Councillor Ken Goddard of  Gibsons council attended the  meeting and reported back to  Gibsons council at its meeting  on Tuesday night of last week.  Councillor Goddard noted that  under the new regulations any  further building in the Gibsons  Bay area was virtually prohibited due to the high water table  affecting the septic disposal systems. Other areas of the village where it was particularly  wet would also be affected until  such time as there was a proper sewer system.  Miss deLange reported to Sechelt council on the situation  as presented to the Union Board  of Health, at its meeting on  Wednesday of last week.  be?  On the Madeira Park school  situation he commented that at  present we operate eight divisions, with the Kindergarten  class using the new activity  room. Present enrolment of 228  is right on entitlement of seven  classrooms.  Here we seem to have the  same problem as at the time of  the  last  referendum  ������'...under-���''  Safe beats  yeggmen  Safe  crackers  entering by  a  side  door, attempted  to jimmy  the   safe   in   the   basement   of ~  Marshall   Wells   Store,   Gibsons  late  Sunday night  The thieves wrecked over $100  worth of tools from the store  shelves.

During discussion on Mr.  Johnson's report there were  comments on the general tight  situation as regards new building that con'.'nues to exist in  the d:rectives from the department of education.  The new trustees present  were Mrs. Agnes Labonte for  Gibsons, Norman Hough and  Mrs.  Sjieila Kitson.

The annual re-enactment of  Christmas in lights is under way  for the 15th season at the home  of Charles Robinson in Giibsons.  For the past week three of Dad  Robinson's five sons, Carman,  Godfrey and John, have een  hard at it putting up the 600  lights,. positioning the set pieces including the creche, Bambi,  the Seven Dwarfs, Santa Claus  in giant proportion and this  year, a group of shepherds make  their appearance as a further  addition to the floodlit figures  on the Robinson lawn.  This colorful Christmas display grew over the years from  a single string of lights to a  sparkling Christmas fairyland  which will greet the five Robinson sons, Carman, Charles,  Winston, John and Godfrey, and  their families for their 15th  Yuletide reunion with Dad Robinson sitting right proudly at  the head of the festive board.  The masterpiece of the outdoor setting is the towering  giant blue spruce remembered  as a seedling and holding the  place of honor each Christmas  "all decked out in sparkling  lights. In recent years the tree  has grown to such proportions  that the boys have an increasingly difficult problem in scram  bling up to the topmost branch-  2-in-l party  The first week in December  produced a gay time for the  Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal  Canadian Legion branch 109.  The ladies and husbands celebrated their annual birthday  party and Christmas party at  the Cedars.  A delicious dinner was served  and a beautiful cake, made by  Henry Hinz of Gibsons Bakery,  was a delight. Imbedded in the  colorful icing was the L.A. crest  The highlight of the evening  was a visit from Santa Claus,  with gifts for everyone. A special thanks goes to Mr. and  Mrs. Schwabe of the Cedars,  who went out of their way to  make  the  evening  delightful.  es and this season, in spite of  Godfrey's best efforts, he could  not quite reach right up to the  top. It is pretty well agreed  that next year they'll have to  call in the B.C. Hydro's special  equipment to take care of this  detail.  Food galore  Turkey stocks are large enough to keep prices low while  broiler chicken prices will ibe  firm to higher, according to the  December outlook prepared by  Canadian Agriculture depart-"  ment's economics branch. The  forecast for some main food  items follows.  TURKEY ��� Prices will remain low because storage stocks  are large.  EGGS ��� Prices may decline  slightly due to seasonally rising  production.  BROILER CHICKEN ��� Prices will be firm to higher.  BEEF ��� High prices will continue with reduced supplies and  strong demand.  FORK ��� With heavier than  usual seasonal supplies, prices  will remain below summer levels.  APPLES ��� Storage holdings  are lower than last year and  prices slightly higher.  POTATOES ��� Supplies are  plentiful and prices continue  relatively low.  RUTABAGAS ��� This vegetable which is seasonally plentiful and of excellent quality is  a good buy.  COLLEGE MAY OPEN  The Regional college which  involves this school district, is  considering opening up with  night classes in West Vancouver senior schools, Peter Wilson, school board secretary-  treasurer reported at Monday  night's meeting of the board.  This college covers the North  Shore, Squamish area and Sunshine Coast area. In order to  get the college under way, using the North Shore institutions  would be a measure of economy.

Mild shakeups occur  Elections are over and an analysis of results will show that outside of the defeat of the bylaw covering garbage collection in the  Pender Harbour region of the Regional District the situation for all  governmental units does not contain much which can be termed  problematical.  ���In Gibsons, chairman Wes Hodgson went down to defeat in a  two to one vote. Councillor James Drummond, low man in a field  of three seeking two seats on council also lost his seat. The new  councillors are Ken Crosby and Gerry Dixon. Dixon was 20 votes  below Crosby's total of 286. The Gibsons vote was rated at close  to 50 percent of the possible total, which shows the electorate was  aware of the need of getting out to vote. The council new chairman Fred Feeney will work with shows good strength. The two  elected councillors are new to municipal politics but they have suf-.  ficient stability to be good councillors.  In Sechelt Chairman William Swain had sufficient strength  without having to dig votes for his re-election. The two men elected to council, Harold Nelson and Charles Rodway should be assets  to work with him.  For the school board, re-election of Don Douglas was expected. He topped the poor poll this year with 145 votes. In his previous election two years ago he amassed a strong 315 vote. The addition of Norman Hough and Mrs. Sheila Kitson, also representing  Gibsons rural, give the board no cause for concern as Mr. Hough  has had previous school board experience and Mrs. Kitson, a newcomer, will first have to find out what is, involved in school board  operations. The defeat of Trustee Mrs. Peggy Volen and election  of Mrs. Agnes Labonte for the Gibsons school board seat replaces  one good trustee with another potentially good one.  To complete the Gibsons vote the referendum to change the  name of Gibsons Landing to Gibsons passed with more than enough  to ratify it. The actual vote was 320 Yes and 105 No, with 255 Yes  votes needed to pass. So now when referring to Gibsons, one is  quite correct. There will be no more Gibsons Landing, except for  historical purposes.  In the Regional District vote there were two upsets. One was  the defeat of Norman Watson, chairman ever siriceJ the Regional  District started. He was ousted by A. J. Rutherford of Halfmoon  Bay who is treasurer of St. Mary's Hospital Society arid a capable  asset for the Regional board. The. other upset was the defeat of  Eric Prit.ie who had done considerable groundwork for the Regional District organization. He was a valued man and deserved  re-election. However Harvey Hubbs was strong enough to take  the seat away from him. .  Defeat of the garbage bylaw in Pender Harbour is, of course,  democracy at work. However Sechelt and Gibsons rural areas have  agreed to garbage collection and disposal. This gives the Regional  District board a sufficient area in which to get a system into operation. Now it has been passed in these two areas the board can  get down to detailed work.  The election results removed some well-established individuals  from official participation in public affairs and in some cases it  was due more to personality clashes than anything else.  The newly elected candidates will more than likely be seeking  advice as to what they will have to face as members of the governing force they represent. Their two years of work to come as trustees, directors or councillors will definitely be a challenge to them.  The future of governing authorities in this so-called age of affluence is no bed of roses. The thorns are taking over.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  C P.

In a recent speech at Fort  Langley, Premier W- A/C!. Bennett of the B . C. Social, Crectft  government gave his description of what he expected to happen in British Columbia' 100_  years from now. Here is part  of what he said: >  By th 21st century, education  will be one of the central themes  of our lives. The need to produce broadly trained, adaptable people will become increasingly important at all levels. In  the future, more students will  be taught, and taught more.  There will be a greater choice  of programs, and by the year  2000, the dropout will be a thing  of the past.  Even today, British Columbia  has an exceptionally high level  of educational attainment; over  the next hundred years I can  forsee 30 universities in this  Province, enrolling at least a  million students.  But the high level and quality  of tomorrow's forma, education  system must and will be kept  in proper balance with other  . forms of training. We already  recognize this need in British  Columbia through our technical and vocational programs. In  the future, many students will  benefit from industrial participation in education, through "in-  service" training in the high  skills the future will require.  " It would be possible, ladies  and gentlemen, to spend much  more time in discussing the opportunities and benefits which  await this province of ours during the next hundred years, the  problem is not where to start,  but when to stop.  But I promised earlier that  before I finished my remarks  tonight, I would make some  firm predictions about our future. So if you will promise in  return not to criticize one or  two bad guesses) when we all  meet here again in the year  2067, I'm game to try.  I believe we can state with  confidence that our second century of progress will include:  A Province of British Columbia extending from the 49th  parallel to the Arctic Ocean.  The no^thland, can never be de  veloped by isolated administrations and therefore British Columbia, like the Prairie provin-  ces, will extend its boundaries  to the Arctic Ocean to promote  : the growth of all the northland.  A population of well over 50  million ��� two and a half times  the population of the whole of  Canada today.  A labor force of more than  17 million persons.  Three million people in metropolitan Vancouver by the year  2000 ��� only 32 years from now.  A northland whose newly developed riches will be the magnet to attract millions of people into unsettled areas.  A major manufacturing and  industrial city at Prince George  with a population over three-  quarters of a miUion.  The world's largest and most  diversified forest industry.  A mining industry, concentrated in northwestern and central British Columbia that annually supplies, in terms of today's dollars,: well over $1 billion worth of products. -  Water in abundance for domestic, industrial, recreational  and power requirements. A surplus of water that will be the  envy of North America's one  billion people.  The growth of manufacturing  complexes including smelters,  iron and steel mills, petrochemical industries, aerospace in-,  spallations and other industries.  A Pacific Great Eastern Railway extended to the northern  territories and Alaska, and diversified into many other forms  of transportation.  A vast export economy, with  our trade growing to at least  25 times its present level.  A tourist industry catering to  well over a hundred million vis1-  itors yearly.  Beyond all reasonable doubt,  therefore, the next century will  offer the good life to the fortunate British Columbian.  His hours of work will be reduced and his leisure time increased.  His income will be higher -r  one of the highest in the world.  He will work with  advanced  technology while advanced tech-  COPYRIGH1 APPLIED FOR  We v/clron.e written questions on legal, points from  readers.

I gave a man $400 for  two dozen cases of scotch but  he never delivered the goods.  What can I do?  A. Nothing. This is an illegal  agreement, under the government liquor act. A number of  problems arise under the heading of illegal agreements. Generally you cannot even sue for  the return of the goods. The  general rule concerning property passing under an illegal contract is that the goods lie where  they fall.  Let us suppose your friend  had delivered the scotch to vou  and you refused to pay or paid  with a cheque that you later  dishonored, he could not sue for  the return of the goods or on  the cheque. The classic case in  POINT  OF LAW  by mSr f^ractUiny aLawyr  our English common law system was that of two highwaymen which was decided centur-  . ies ago in England. One robber  made off with the swag and  the other sued him for his half.  Needless to say, this hopeful  litigant was unsuccessful.  A lady of the night cannot sue  on a dishonored cheque given  for her favors. The person who  receives a cheque in payment  of a gambling debt is in a similar position if it is dishonored.  All contracts made on a Sunday  are void under the Lord's Day  Act, except acts of mercy or of  necessity which are allowed  and are specified in the act, for  example, operation of restaurants or professional practice by  medical doctors.  I It is common for real estate  salesmen tp have the parties  sign a contract for the sale of a  house on a Sunday but back  date or post date the contract  one day to avoid the provision  of the Lord's Day Act. Such a  contract is, nevertheless, void.  Our courts will not allow themselves to be used to enforce any  type of illegal' agreement.  nology works for him.  His family will 7 be better informed, better educated and will  lead a longer, healthier life.  In an age of technology, these  are attainments we can reason-,  ably expect. During the century that lies ahead, however,  the most important attainment  of all will require not technology; but a constant, deep and  genuine effort of the heart to  live at peace with our fellow  man, and a proper appreciation  of the real moral and spiritual  values. Given this attainment,  those who come Rafter us will  truly be able to say hi the year  2067 that these were our greatest hundred years.

I  think it should be postponed until our national finances are in  better shape., Ottawa is already  borrowing heavily from the  Canadian public 7 It shouldn' t  have to borrow more 'money  merely to help pay the premiums of schemes most of which  are already in effect in this  country.  But let us be clear on this.  National Medicare is not a  scheme for telling the doctors  what to do. Nor does it tell people which doctor to go to. It  merely makes money available  to the provinces��� your tax  dollar and mine ��� so that our  own provincial governments can  administer the programs, many  of which are already in effect  today.  Take British Columbia for example. Under Ottawa's new  Medicare act, the federal government will have to raise taxes. These taxes will be turned  over, in a lump sum, to Premier Bennett. And Premier Bennett, if he goes along with the  spirit of the legislation, will cut  our premiums by a corresponding amount.  This, is Only accounting you  might say. Our doctors bills  will be paid, half by taxes col-  ected by Ottawa, and half by  premiums. So it is not really  inflationary. It won't add to the  total value of all doctors bills  in B.C. unless the doctors themselves charge more for their  services.  Nor does it mean a lot of red  tape in our doctors' offices. If  Premier Bennett has his way  there may be fewer individual  plans in effect. But this is up to  the provincial government to decide. And, if there are fewer  plans in effect, there will be  less paperwork in any case.  So what are we really worrying about? We are worrying  about balancing our budget in  Ottawa. We are worrying about  making another $500 million  transfer to the provinces. And, .  if our federal budget is to be  balanced-, Ottawa's tax take  must be raised accordingly.  Of this, Premier Bennett will  be getting- about $50 million a  year. Willhe pass this money  on, directly, to the people of  B.C.? Will he reduce their premiums by $50 million? Or will  he merely pocket Ottawa's contribution   for  Medicare  as*  he,  Coast News, Dec. 14, 1967.       3  did in the case of hospital insurance?  If he does, Ottawa is bound  to look bad. It will look bad,  hot only because it is raising  taxes, but also because it was  foolish enough to think that the  niceties of a- national health  plan would, take precedence  over the building of dams and  highways right here in JBX..,  Ghristoias at  Art Gallery  The Arts Council Gallery,  Wharf Street, Sechelt, has a  special   Christmas   display   to  illustrate the Christmas message of goodwill.

Verri Totten and Bob Green  found themselves confronted by  four killer whales; The men 'estimated the whales were up to 30  feet in length with <_orsal fins  five feet high.  Both divers had close calls  with the whales, known also as  blackfish, when they came to  within five or ten feet of them  while they were trying to reach  their floats. Luckily the whales  were more interestd in a.small  seal close by and ate it instead  of the men. -  Wives and families watched  helplessly on the beach as the  whales churned the water close  to the divers.  After the herd (pod) of whales  had passed the men braved the  waters once more but the usually plentiful supply of fish had  all disappeared into caves and  crevices.  The men, both members of  the Tiderippers clulb, say they  are still ���quivering over that  close call.

This marketing assistance program, which was started last  year, is designed to test the  economics of a new industry-  . which could not only provide an  additional source of employment for B.C. fishermen, but  also reduce the number of dogfish off the West Coast of British Columbia, Jack Davis M.P.  ���reports.  This assistance payment will  be in the. form of the payment  to fishing companies of a maximum of 11 cents per pound on  the production of skinned dogfish flaps. Companies are required to pay fishermen a minimum of $50 per ton for round  fish or 13V_! cents per pound on  unskinned dogfish flaps on a  delivered basis for all dogfish,  purchased under this plan; 7*  >  A;total of $24,000 has been  provided and this will provide  for the production of approximately 200,000 pounds of dogfish flaps.  There is a ready market in  Germany for these flaps and  companies are also hopeful of  selling some of the skinned carcasses in the United Kingdom.  Companies wishing to participate in this assistance program '������ should contact the Department^, of Fisheries ^regional  office in Vancouver. -.:'���.'; ������'  Fishermen .wishing to participate should arrange \with a company for purchase of dogfish or  dogfish flaps before proceeding  to fishing grounds.

BY NANCY  GAYLORD  FASHION CONSULTANT JO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  If you would like to sew yourself a really elegant-looking dinner dress, consider the .: eyecatching appeal of decorator  cottons. Handsome cotton damask, basketweave cottons, sculptured looking jacquard weaves,  and petit-point cottons are a  few of the many interesting  fabrics to be found in decorator  piece goods) departments. Keep  in mind that decorator cottons  are often less pliable and require more skill to sew into a  garment than regular -piece  goods fabrics.  For back-to-school wardrobes  the most versatile loungeiwear  style may prove to be the sleep-  shirt with companion wrap  skirt.'A co-ed can sleep in the  knee-length shirt, and wrap its  matching skirt around her for  sports or even classes. The  lounge-sportswear outfits are  popular in tartan and madras  plaids. One classic sleepshirt  made of solid blue cotton has  madras elbow patches and a  matching madras wrap skirt.  Here's! a tip that may save  many hours of spring cleaning  xnext spring: A double thickness  of cheesecloth taped to the vents  of a forced-air heating system,  catches most of the oily film  which  would otherwise be  de-  . posited on your walls or drapes.

MEASLES:^ ".    7 ^ >  It has been taken for granted for years that every child  sooner or later must have measles. In facty ainaosty all children in the past have at one  time or another had measles.  However, measles is a serious  disease and can cause death and  disability, according to the Canadian Medical association. Some  children develop severe pneumonia and have a difficult time  recovering. Occasionally a child  has a severe nervous 7 system  complication which leaves him  crippled for life. .;:���  Newly developed vaccines for  the prevention of measles have  THURSDAY  DECEMBER 14  8 p.m. Sharp  NO GAMES LESS THAN $10  20th Game - $100  1���5���10���15 will be good  neighbors at $2.50 each side  proven to bev.extremely effective. There areV two types of  vaccines: . the killed measles  vaccine and; the live measles  vaccine. At the present time  medical opinion favors the live  vaccine which has been treated  so that the virus which normally causes measles has been  weakened so it causes only a  very mild disease ���- a little bit  of fever, ^perhaps some headache^ a little cough. The child  gets the same protection he  would have after having had  the full-blown disease.  There are two forms of live  vaccine: One is combined with  gamma globulin in order to  minimize the symptoms that  might develop. Another form  of the vaccine is further weakened so that it does not require  the giving of gamma globulin  along with it.  The CvM.A. advises that  Measles vaccine should be given to children over the age of  nine months. In this way measles can be prevented. It is in-;  teresting that the >mUd,; modified measles induced by the  vaccine is non-infectious and  yet it produces the. same lifelong protection that the regular  disease produces.  "Guess what?"

LLY'S  GARBAGE REMOVAL  .\).  Homage to a man  (By JULES A. 'MAINIL)  7 Some  eight  years   ago,   Bob  .Burns,  clerk of Gibsons Landing for a long time, had a stroke  ;    and died shortly thereafter  There is nothing biographical  about this, it is merely my personal  homage  to  the  man  he  ���was,   or   more   correctly,   the  man as I remember him Physically he, was large of frame, had  a well shaped head with- a rugged face on which lines of suffering were deeply etched.  He  had had various serious   accidents,  one  of which had  cost  him   a 4eg;   he  suffered' from  djabetes.  'He was a strong-willed man,  aJ determined man, refusing to  concede anything to either ailment or disability^ How well I  remember    seeing    him    walk  fipom  the old Municipaloffice  to the post'Office,  then to 7the  bank ' and).finally  back -to  his  office.   What   a   via   dolorosa  those walks must have been at  times,  but he saw his village,  and his village saw him.  In my dealings with him and  from my observations, I foun&  him a strict but far from rigid  :   administrator. He was forward  looking and progressive, yet economical. The lesson of the depression had not been lost on  him,   he  understood  very  well  indeed   that   there   are   fluctu-  .ations in the affairs of men and  7 that it is well to look to  the  morrow.  V The day after Bob suffered ?  his stroke council appointed me  clerk pro tern. What follows is  something I have wanted to say  for a long time. It is something  that I found unbelieveatole then  and still wonder at now. The  work in the office was completely up to date. The cash was in  exact balance, > all entries had  been made, all letters had been  dealt with, all ' unfinishdr business had been carried as far  forward as time and information permitted. ���  To people unfamiliar with municipal administration this may  seem ordinary; to the experienced, it seems little short of a  miracle.  About a month after his stroke  Bob died and;I succeeded him:  Digging into the job, I soon  realized that the easily observable good work of my predeces-  . sor was the least part of his  task: I found obedience to his  council but never subservience,  I found, a thorough knowledge  of his community, I found integrity and justice, I found a  profound concern for the Corporation of the Village of Giib-  . sons Landing and1 for all the  people living therein. Because of  the qualities /I found in .Bob  Burns and in his work, I decidr  ed very quickly indeed, that to  the best of my abilities,. I would  follow his general policies and  methods; a decision that I never once. regretted.  This  may sound  odd, I respected Mr. Burns from the first,  iHWUurau��mnuu\uuuuuuiiin\iiimummiiuiimuimiu\iiinmi)  WANT SOMETHING DONE!

According to statistics prepared by the Alcoholism Foundation of British Columbia, the  average.adult in B.C. consumed 1.85 gallons of absolute alcohol ��� which, incidentally, is  above the national average.^ of  1.70 gallons. Statistics show that  between* 1954 and 1964 the per  capita consumption of alcoholic  beverages increased by 23.3%,  and shows no sign of levelling  off. So ��� how much booze is  enough?  .The misuse of alcohol is one  of the major causes' of the guilt  and despair which accompany  social, emotional and! economic  deterioration prevalent in our  society today. It has been estimated that there are approximately 28,150 alcoholics in the  province and that the incidence  is increasing. Between 1954 and  1964 the number of alcoholics  per 100,000 of the population in  Coast News  Phone 886-2622  B.C.  aged 20 years  and  older  increased by 28%.  Comparing the rate of consumption and the rate of alcoholism, one can see a positive  correlation between the two.  This is interpreted by some people to mean that alcohol is the  sole cause of alcoholism, and  although this statement is not  entirely true, it must be remembered that alcohol is a  drug.  More people have developed  a psychological dependency on  al'cohdl' than those who have developed a psychological' dependency on marijuana, and a few  of these have found alcohol as  physiologically addicting as  heroin is to the regular user. If  alcohol were newly discovered  today, it would be considered  a crude intoxicant capable of  causing total loss of control,  and would therefore be balnned  from public usage, for the sake  of protecting society in general.  Although there are other factors which must necessarily be  present before a person becomes an alcoholic, all the ans-,  wers to the question who is liable to succumb to this illness?  are not yet known. When looking at statistics from a public  health point of view, one realizes that increased per capita  consumption may mean increased loss of control ��� and' this is  the jumping off point where the  problem d-rinker begins to develop: In British Columbia today, alcoholism is not under  control ��� so, how much booze  is enough?
