A segment of students who  appeared to be more concerned with the fact they could not  carry packs of cigarets in their  shirt, pockets when in classrooms^persisted with-their argu-<-  ment^to the point where one  adult from the floor inquired  whether the future of' society  rested on the smoking of a cig-  aret.  The remark: which drew most  applause was uttered quite early in the open discussion period  when someone spoke up and  said discipline should start in  the home.      -  Superintendent Johnston during the discussions urged that  the meeting get down to specifics. He doubted whether more  facilities were the answer. The  biggest factor, he said, was that  the reasons for dropout's was  beyond control of school boards  and the school board, he maintained was not the place where  one should expect a solution.  B. C. MacKenzie, special coun  sellor, towards the close of the  meeting suggested formation of  a Family group committee as  there was a necessity of the  involvement of family association.  Poster contest  for children  Children living in the Port  Mellon to Sechelt area have the  opportunity of competing in a  poster contest with first, second and third prizes of $40, $20  and $10. The Roberts Creek Credit Union is planning a 4' x 8'  back to its Sechelt parking lot  and would like a poster to cover it rather than have a blank  wall.  To get ideas for this poster,  it was decided to hold a competition in- the schools, and for  ideas the schools have been  provided with Credit Union literature, from Which the children can take any theme suitable. The schools are organizing the competition /by setting  closing dates, etc.  Some ambitious students will  gain money for Christmas  spending and from all reports  the competition is keen, some  entrants wanting to submit  more than one poster. Judges  for the competition have not  been chosen.  1 Nominations show School Board  aroused  Twenty-seven nominees in Sunshine Coast Regional District,  school board and municipal elections will give voters something to  chew on this year.  Usually elections have been at a minimum with the odd opponent cropping up now and again but this year with the Regional  District added there appears to be an increased incentive to get  elected. Today is the day for the school board vote.  An all candidate public meeting for Gibsons nominees has been  called for next Wednesday night in the United church hall, when  each will have a turn to speak his or her mind.  Gibsons  Fi_Gl_ Y VOLEN  Dl'CSk RANNIGER  Gibsons will have quite an election this year with two seeking the chairmanship of council and three seeking two coun-  '  cil seats.

Those   seeking   the   chair   of  Gibsons  council are the sitting  chairman Wes B. Hodgson and  Fred    Feeney,    whose    council  ��� term  ends  Dec.  31.  Seeking the two vacancies on  council will be Councillor James  Drummond, seeking re-election,  Gerry Dixon, barber, and Ken  Crosby,   Port  Mellon   engineer.

Children take     School Board  parr-in service  >St. Bartholomew's and St: Aidan's churches held an impressive service of the Five Candles Sunday, symbolizing the  five events from the >��� birth of  Christ to Pentecost. The children of the congregation took  an active part in this service  as five candle bearers each accompanied by a member to light  it, placed the lighted taper in  the five-holder container at the  chancel steps.  Each of the candles was of a  different color, again symbolizing the five acts of God ��� the  Nativity, the Crucifixion, the  Resurrection'; the Ascension and  the coming of the Holy Spirit.  The children taking part  were Peggy Swanson, Jeanette  Swanson, Stephanie Gibson,  Michael Hinz, Roxanne Hinz,  James Mackay, Anne Kelly and  Laura Carmody. The fifth candle was lighted by chancel server Elliott Trueman. The first  lesson was read by Stephen  Hoops, lessons were also read  by the Rev. Kelly and Ross Gibson, lay reader.  The Rev. J. Henry Kelly, vicar, emphasized the teachings of  Christ came down in unbroken  continuity, through the ages.  This particular ceremony originated years ago in the Cathedral of Gibraltar. Later a compassionate Truro priest, in an  endeavour to cause a group of  blind children to visualize the  five acts, had each child count  each act on their fingers. Rev.  Kelly suggested it might not be  a bad idea for a good many of  us today to practice this five-  finger exercise.

An election looms for the Regional District board of directors.  This board is just one year old. Its members who were mostly from  the former ARDA committee who were working for the benefit of  the Sunshine Coast community as a whole, gravitated into a committee, at the advice of Hon. Dan Campbell, to interest itself in  the water and other problems of the Sunshine Coast.  This was done because the ARDA committee did not appear  to be getting anywhere provineially. So it decided to get into the  provincial field and see what could be done closer to home. It took  the water problem under its wing and approached provincial officials and received what amounted to a brush-off. However the  brush-off was temporary and the provincial water officials did offer some guidance and as a result the district now has more water  information under its belt than it has ever had.  Next along came Hon. Dan Campbell's Regional District concept. As the Sunshine Coast already had a body of men whi were  devoted to acquiring whatever it could it was natural for those  same men to tackle Mr. Campbell's Regional District idea. So they  obtained Letters Patent to cover various operations within the  district. One of the first battles was to get the district confined to  the Sunshine Coast only, eliminating Powell River and Squamish  areas. In this they were successful and after this they were able  to throw back other efforts to expand the area.  Since then they have organized the Regional District by progressive steps after careful consideration and have laid a foundation which has a solid basis on which they can build for the future.  Each one of them deserves to be allowed to continue their work  for the next two year electoral period. So when it comes time for  voting for your Regional Directors give a thought to the work they  have already done and give them a chance to continue their effective work.  Dips into the past  Looking back in the files of the Coast News in order to produce  the 21. years ago and 10 years ago items of news is a distinct education on the life of people in this area.  For many years the Coast News was centred on Halfmoon Bay  and as the result of the population mounting in the Gibsons area it  was natural that it should be established finally in Gibsons Landing  The history of the Sunshine Coast began years before white  *olk ventured to its shores. Lester Peterson has done a marvellous  job in placing that history in printed form through the columns of  the Coast News. He has also authored a book on a later period,  The Gibsons Landing Story.  However the day to day life of the white folk has found its way  into the columns of the Coast News and it is with those events that  the nostalgic aroma of bygone days reopens the memories of many  folk. To some the words of Stephen Leacock who said he did not  raalize the old grave that stood among the? brambles at the foot of  the farm was history ��� contain a great deal of truth. To others  the old grave has no meaning because they are too busy making  the history others will forget just as readily.  Recalling 20 years of life of the various communities as they  ',v'.n ��xisted gives one some of the background necessary to obtain  a more rounded picture of the past, present and future of the area.  There were days when electric power did not exist. There was no  road to Pender Harbour. One provincial policeman was the guardian of the law. Telephones did not exist. Today the baby carriage,  once a novelty, is a necessity. So is electricity and phones'.  Delving in the past brings a stabilizing influence to one's thinking. We should be pleased that some of the Sunshine Coast's history is so readily available. It keeps us in touch with our own history.

A wooden ramp has replaced  the earth fill at the Co-op store  in Gibsons. Another was built  at Thorburn's garage.  Three shipping companies are  now serving Gibsons daily as  a result of improved wharfing  facilities.  10 YEARS AGO  Alfred Funnell was again  elected chairman of the district  school board.

If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this news7  paper.  Following recent articles on  a lien on land and a lien claimed on a car for repairs, we  have received a number of  questions on liens generally.  A lien is a right in one person, to retain that, which is in  his possession, owned by another, until certain demands of  the person in possession are  met. Thus if you can't pay for  repairs to your watch or shoes  or car, the workman or mechanic may hold them. If you  can't' pay your hotel bill, the  hotel will seize your luggage.  All sorts of persons can exercise a lien ��� a lawyer over  documents, a warehouseman  over stored goods, a railroad  or shipping company over shipping charges, a horsebreeder,  for stud fees; a thresher or  logger over grain or a boom  of logs for unpaid wages.  There are general Mens and  particular liens. In the case of  a general lien all goods may  be held for an unpaid bill. If  you store separately both a  piano and a deep freeze, the  warehouseman may keep both  till the fees of each are paid.  Where a particular lien exists,  the lien claimant must surrender each item separately. Thus  if three crates are shipped  from Vancouver to Toronto by  rail, the owner may demand  one crate by paying the shipping charges on it alone  The mechanic lien act deals  mainly with liens on land but  also deals with liens against  chattels and provides that anyone who has improved a chattel and has possession may not  only exercise a lien but also  sell the chattel.

There is a special  provision for garage keepers;  exercising a lien against a motor vehicle and keeping the  lien in existance although the  vehicle is surrendered back to  the owner, provided the proper  documents are filed with the  superintendant of motor vehicles within the proper period.  It sometimes happens that  the lien claimant wants to surrender the goods back to the  owner although he has not been  paid but hesitates for fear of  losing  his  lien  rights   such  as  DON'T NEGLECT A  SORE THROAT  /.        ".- ���  Even a minor sore throat can be extremely  dangerous to a child if neglected. It might be  one of the early symptoms of rheumatic fever  and this disease causes more deaths than polio  did before Dr. Salk.  The cause of rheumatic fever is the strepto  coccus germ which can be easily identified by  your physician. The diagnosis must be as soon  as possible. Beginning symptoms are the innocent looking minor sore throat, a feeling of  fatigue and mild joint pains. Don't wait for the  severe stages when the sore thoat develops with  a high fever, sore neck glands, red and swollen  joints. By this time irreparable damage may  have been done to the heart.

Director Ciiff Gilker reported  to the board that at a recent  meeting between government  recreation officials and mem-.  bers of the area recreation  group he found that the situation as regards departmental  control was still unsettled and  that it would be best for the  regional board to await clarification at government level before it ventured into the recreation field. It how rests in the  hands of each community association to approve the old system of a government grant for  each small area of whether it  forms a total area association  with government assistance.  Director Frank West discussing a meeting with school board  representatives on the subject  of merging with the Regional  board in the construction of one  building, for both operations, .  said he didn't know whether the  school board looked on it with  favor. He urged leaving it over  for next year's directors to  solve. The subject was tabled  for the February meeting.  A Regional District letter to  MacMillah Bloedel on the possible use of alder wood in its  operations drew a reply that the  company found the cost of logging alder expensive. The company was not using any at present in its operations and was  selling it to furniture manufacturers.       7  COAST NEWS  CAROL SHEETS  Available to organizations by  enquiring at the Coast News  Coast News, Nov. 30 1967.  muununiiiuuiuuinHuumimiHunumumiumiunuuiuumuuiB  CHORALE REHEARSING  Canfor Chorale is now re^-  hearsing the Christmas cantata  When Love was Born for presentation on Wed., Dec. 13 at  8 p.m. in Port Mellon's Community church.

The Elphinstone District  reluctantly   has   to   turn   away  away because it will not lower  the standards in existing packs  by overcrowding. Perhaps seeing the boys in action will encourage others to join in this  happy community experience.

As-I am  working and earning ray own  living I can meet the financial  responsibilities. I have .$500 saved with which to buy it and  all necessary equipment.  The problem is this: Do I  need my parents' permission to  buy a horse? They do not want  me to.  Lover of Horses  DEAR LOVER ��� At 19 you  are still an infant in the eyes of  the law; so you cannot contract  to buy anything not considered  a "Necessary." It would take a  wild stretch of the imagination  to thus classify a horse.  This is why a car salesman  always insists that a parent join  in the purchase agreement of a  minor. If your horse dealer  sells to you without this, he  runs a risk, since he could not  sue in the case of your failing  to pay.  Then again, your parents  must not allow you to acquire  any "dangerous thing." Unless  you are a past master at horse  handling, it could be a plenty  dangerous thing for you.  Better wait until you ar 21.  DEAR DORIS ��� You might  laugh at my problems but it  sure isn't a laughing matter  with me. I nursed both of my  babies and after I quit I lost  my figure completely.  I might ibe able to get used to  it if it wasn't for my husband  who keeps teasing me about it  and giving out insults. If he  sees another girl with a good  figure he rants and laves and  carries on.  When I tried talking to him  about it he told me I shouldn't .  be so touchy.  No Figure  DEAR NO ���     What     gives  Faultless Freddie carte blanche  to pull somebody else apart and  then call her touchy?  It's a perverted sense of humor which works at deflating  the other fellow. Your so-called  loving husband needs to open  up his narrow world and start  thinking along more interesting  lines���and I don't mean curves!  There are padded bras, which  are fashions which help the figure. If you are underweight you.  can build up your diet. But  most of all, the man who is  supposed to care about you  needs to improve his conversation.  WASTE LAND  There are vast areas in Canada which are marginal for  agriculture or forestry. There  are millions of acres, however,  which were cleared for farming but are not suited for it  although they could produce  good tree crops.  Christmas parly i  The December meeting of the  Sunshine Coast BPW club will  be held at Ole's Cove on Tues.,  Dec. 5. A smorgasbord supper  will be served at,6:30 p.m. This;  will be followed by a short business meeting and the rest of:the  evening will be given over to  the club's Christmas party.  Contests, games and prizes  are being. ^arranged and gifts  will be exchanged. Each member should bring; a small gift  worth not more than 50c, together with one for any guest she  may be bringing. Members, old  and new, are welcome and encouraged to bring friends.  Please contact Mrs. Marilyn  Wigard, 885-9345, or Mrs. Jo.  Benjafield, 883-2336, before Sunday evening, Dec. 3, to let them  know if you,;will be coming, so  that correct numbers for the  smorgasbord may be given to  Mr. Winning.  Beauty hints  By LYNN CARTER  Q. What is a good lubricating  remedy for dry, chapped, or  weather-toughened skin?  A. Lanolin, Ibaby oil, olive oil,  oil of sweet almonds, cucumber oil, or odorless castor oil  . . . any one of these is excellent for this purpose.  Q. While there are many women who favor rouge, still  there are others who do not.  What do you think about  rouge?  A. Mine is an affirmative  vote. And rouge does seem to  be One cosmetic which most  models refuse to do without.  If of course you have a naturally rosy complexion, then you  probably don't need the addition of rouge ��� but if you don't,  rouge deserves a place in your  . makeup routine. Nothing perks  up a dullish complexion so fast.  Q. When are the must times  for brushing the hair?  A. Every morning, quickly, to  groom it. Every evening, thoroughly, to stimulate and shine  it. Before every shampoo, to  loosen dust and grime.  Q. Do you advocate the use  of the very pale shades of lipstick?  A. The pale mouth is pretty,  if your chin is firm and strong,  and if you're very young or  young-looking. Otherwise, I  think it's better to accent the  lips.  EASILY   SATISFIED  Trees do not make great demands on the soil. They often  grow well on land which will  not raise farm crops. Land  worn out by poor farming  methods may grow trees and  be restored to fertility at one  and the same time. Even land  that has lost its topsoil by erosion will grow trees, and in  time ��� a long, long time ���  its topsoil will be restored.  Here is another way in which  trees work  for  man.  "Then after all that careful  planning, I walked up to  thd window, pointed the  note at him and handed  him the gun."  Etiquette  By ROBERTA LEE  , Q. Is it considered poor form  for a i woman, at her second  marriage, to have three or  four  bridesmaids?  A. Yes. The second marriage  should be as simple and informal as possible, and the  bride should have only one attendant. 7    '  Q. Must a guest at a christening bring a gift for the new  baby? 7  A. Not obligatory ��� but cus  tomary. . ; -'���  Q. * When eating prunes,  should the fruit be cut ; from  the pit in the dish, or may  the whole prune be taken info  the mouth, and then the pit  removed from the mouth to the  saucer with the spoon?  A. It is better to cut the  prune in half, and leave the  pit on the plate.  News intended for publication in the Coast News  should be in this office as  soon as possible.

Leopold, research hydrolo-  gist. Little has been added or  lost in the hundreds of million  years since the first clouds  formed and the first rains fell.  The same water has been pumped time and again from the  oceans into the atmosphere,  dropped upon the land, and  transferred back to the sea.  In this hydrologic cycle, at any  instant, only about 5 gallons of  every 100,000 gallons of the  total water supply is in motion.  Most of the water is stored  in the oceans, frozen in glaciers,  held in lakes, or detained underground.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS ARE REAL SALESMEN  ...try a stretcher,  sometime.

Have a  Grey Cup  Wash Tub  Party  B-1281  BlacK* Label  Editor: The writers feel sure  that many of you will recall that  nine Christmases ago before  the deluge of locally sent and  received Christmas cards decorated the mantlepiece for a  short time before their inevitable fiery end, a small group  agreed to send a donation  (equal to the dozens and dozens  of cards we send to friends and  acquaintances we come in contact with frequently) to the  Central City Mission in Vancouver.  This was done rather than  sending Christmas cards locally, so that some less fortunate-  may better enjoy his or her  Christmas and possibly appreciate that Chni'st did not die in  vain after all.  This small group has been  growing each passing year so  this letter is directed to any  and all who wish to contribute  in this manner to ensure that  more and more people will have  a happier and brighter Christmas as it was intended.  This year the proceeds will  go to Central City Mission.  Those wishing to join with us,  please, contact Mrs. F. Feeney,  886-2121 or Mrs. Fred Holland,  886-9513.  Money may be deposited in  the Gibsons Christmas Card  Fund at the Bank of Montreal,  and must be in by noon Friday,  Dec. 15, signed as you wish it  to appear in the paper.  that Mr. H. W. Herridge has  introduced a bill, An Act to amend the Senate and House of  Commons Act, so wrote him  and said that I hoped it included sections that would mean  that members must attend better than they have been doing.  The only way I can tell how  badly they are attending is when  a vote is taken and during October the analysis of the reports in Hansard show that in  one case there were 112 absent  when a vote was taken and in  another  case   102.  This   is   fol-  four other, votes. The  quorum  in the house is just 20.  Mr. Herridge tells me that  last Friday, Nov. 10, to quote  from his letter, "For the greater, part of the afternoon there  were not more than 30 members present, and at one point  the number sank to 21, just one  above the quorum." That surely is disgraceful.  His bill also includes the provision that any member of the  legal profession who accepted  a fee for any work he should  undertake as an M.P. would  lose his seat. On the last count  there were 67 lawyers in the  house of commons. I wonder  how many still carry on their  legal work.  When are the voters going to  wake up and see that the representatives they send to Otta  wa attend to business instead of  as one Ottawa paper said some  years ago, spend their time on  the street looking at the pretty girls. Having lived in Ottawa I know there are plenty of  pretty girls to look at.  The section dealing with a  lawyer losing his seat in the  house if he accepts a fee is copied from the act in Great Britain. ��� B. L. Cope.

Ph. 885-9551  Editor: As a reader of Hansard for over 20 years I have a  good idea of just what loafing  is done by the members of parliament in Ottawa. I noticed  lowed up by 50, 79, 64 and 62 on  Royal Bank  award coming  Nominations for the 1968 Royal Bank awfard have started to  flow in to the committee which  will select the recipient of the  $50,000 cash award for 1968, according to Dr. A. W. Trueman,  chairman of the committee.  "We are encouraged at the  calibre of the nominations received," he said, "and of course  hope that we will receive many  more between now and the nomination deadline, which is Feb.  28, 1968."  The award, created by the  Royal Bank to honor a Canadian citizen or person domiciled in Canada, whose outstanding achievement is of such importance that it is contributing  to human welfare and the common good, was presented for  the first time, last June, to Dr.  Wilder Graves Penfield.  In reviewing the experience  gained during the first year of  the award, Selection Committee  Chairman Dr. A. W. Trueman  stated: "Perhaps because the  award was new some people  thought of it as a prize and the  award selection committee actually received a number of applications for the award sent  directly by the person concerned. The regulations stipulate  that no one may apply in his  own behalf, but that two other  persons must make the nomination and provide documentary  evidence to support it."  Another fairly common misunderstanding that emerged  was the belief that institutions  were eligible. "This is not so,"  Dr. Trueman stressed. "Teams,  such as those working on medical or other research projects,  are qualified for sponsorship.  Should the award go to a team,  the $50,000 would be equally divided among the team members."  The deliberations of the selection committee are kept completely separate and independent of the Royal Bank. Correspondence which could lead  to a nomination for the award  is seen only by the members of  the selection committee, and its  secretary.

Mr. Crosby has accepted  many responsibilities an the Gibsons area and has fulfilled them  well.

FRED  FEENEY  My nominators are community and cost conscious people  who are sincerely concerned  about the future development of  Gibsons.  This is why I think I can do  a good job as chairman:  1 am 45 years of age, married  with a growing family.  I am employed by a firm  whose policy is Service: the  B.C. Telephone Company.  I have 22 years local residence. I have 26 years service  in the Volunteer Fire Service of  which five years was served as  Fire  Chief.  I have four years experience  as commissioner with the Corporation of the Village of Gibsons Landing.  I am presently actively engaged in: Chamber of Commerce, Gibsons Rod and Gun  Club, Kiwanis Service club, and  Royal Canadian Legion.  As a nominee I sincerely ask  all eligible voters to cast their  ballots on Dec. 9 so that we can  start on our second century  with a positive and constructive  policy.  PEGGY VOLEN  My reasons for wanting to be  your school trustee in the Village of Gibsons for another year  are:  I would like to see continued  progress in the education of  the children. They are the ones  who must compete with the  working forces of tomorrow and  we owe them an education  which will allow them to 'be employed, pay taxes and so contribute their share to society.  The education department sets  the curriculum and with realistic study along with consideration for those paying taxes we  can have good schools and good  courses which lead to good citizens and a good community.  I am a past president of the  Gibsons Parent-Teachers association, am married and have two  children in school.  Besides the meetings and work  at the local level, I have attended many seminars, branch meet  ings, and work shops during the  last four years as your trustee  and feel that the knowledge  gained qualifies me as one who  is able to serve you and the  school pupils.  Please vote on Dec. 9 at the  Gibsons Municipal hall.  Mrs. Charlotte (Peggy) Volen  JAMES CRAMER  I wish to become a school  trustee to further serve the society and educational system  we now enjoy. Apathy must not  be allowed within this structure  if we are to meet the challenges of tomorrow. I have been  active in the community as a  Kinsmen member, July 1 chairman, Centennial committee  member and as a trustee for  IBPS&PMW. I think my interest  in service work will be an asset. Do you?  SHEILA A. KITSON  Mrs. Kitson who is seeking  election on the school board  representing Gibsons rural  area is 27 years of age, is married, has two children aged  five and four. She was born in  England and has had opthalmic  and general nurse training in  England. She has lived on the  Sunshine Coast since 1962. Her  husband is Michael Kitson, a  civil engineer employed at  Port Mellon. He is a UBC graduate of 1956.  The Davis Ottawa Diary  One of the first items mentioned in Prime Minister Pearson's bill of fare for the fall  session of parliament is a new  broadcasting act.  And tied up with this is the  question of educational TV. Both  Aliberta and Ontario want to  get started. And other provinces  will undoubtedly want to use  this vital new medium of communication in order to cut costs  and at the same time, raise  their educational  standards.  Educational TV is bound to  be controversial. Broadcasting  comes under the federal government. However education ���  and especially education of the  very young, comes under the  provinces. So there will undoubtedly be a heated exchange, especially with Quebec,  as to how educational TV is  to be handled, in this country.  ETV has great possibilities.  They were outlined recently in  a speech by the secretary of  state, the Hon.. Judy LeMarsh.  In it she said that a number  of countries were already making extensive use of TV for  educational purposes.  Italy is a case in point. Their  Telescuola, as it is called,  broadcasts secondary school  programs from 8:30 in the  morning until 2:30 in the afternoon. Originating in Rome, they  make use, not only of the most  modern TV techniques but also  the best qualified instructors in  Italy.  Miss LaMarsh, after seeing  this system at work in Italy,  said that the teachers record  their programs in a real classroom setting. In other words.  they are actually teaching  classes and answering questions  as they would normally do.  Viewers are located anywhere  and everywhere. They are to  be found, not only in classrooms, Jbut also in community  halls, church basements and  the kitchens of ordinary homes.  One can imagine what the  availability of these programs,  on ordinary TV sets has done  in remote areas. It has helped,  quite dramatically, to raise the  standard of education, not only  among students at the secondary school level but also that  of the adult population especially in Southern Italy.  Not only can ETV help immeasurably in the teaching of  science or the presentation of  plays by great authors like  Shakespeare, but it can also  help to cut costs. The problem  of crowding for instance, is loss  acute. By using large screens,  modern audio techniques and  closed-circuit-transmissicn systems the audience numbers can  be     increased      substantially. Centennial theme for tea  The centennial theme combined with an unusually colorful display of magnificent chrysanthemums set the scene for  the annual Fall OES tea and  bazaar recently at the Gibsons Elementary school hall.  The tea tables were centred  with decorations in the Star  point colors, and this year's emblems, sheaf of wheat, white  rose and delphinium, were used  on the stage curtains along with  dogwood and the Centennial  maple leaf.  The affair was opened by  Mrs. Zoe Eades, past matron of  Mt. Elphinstone Chapter and  present grand chaplain of the  Grand Chapter of British Columbia. On hand to welcome the  guests were Mrs. V. Franske,  WM, and Mr. E. J. Shaw, WP.  They were assisted by Sue O'-  Stitch, a little known character  who stood mutely at the door  labelled with verses advertising  the bazaar's wares.  Many of the staff were in  centennial costume, and Mrs.  Doreen Stewart made a most  attractive saleslady as she per  ambulated an array of dainty  handkerchiefs fastened to her  gown. The various stalls enjoyed a brisk session and goods  disappeared rapidly.  Past matrons poured at .the  beautifully appointed tea table.  The door prize, a set of glass  stemware, was won by Mrs.  Stan Trueman. Winners of the  grocery hampers were: Mrs. J.  Bilton, Roberts Creek; Mrs. R.  Telford, Gibsons; Mrs. D. Davidson, Roberts Creek and Mrs.  R. J. Eades, Roberts Creek.  Mrs. E. Ramsay won the cake  draw and the doll and bed went  to little Miss K. Brett. A handsome pottery tea set made by  Mrs. B. Bing was drawn by Mr.  A. Richter of Sechelt. Isobel  Gooldrup, Pender Harbour, won  a painting by Mrs. S. Trueman.  The members of the OES are  pleased with the returns of their  labors and grateful to those who  contributed so liberally to their  Cancer project.

In older men, this condition  is usually due to enlargement  of the prostrate gland, which  is located at the lower end of  the bladder. In males this gland  normally enlarges with age,  and sometimes reaches a size  large enough to interfere with  the ability of the bladder to  hold large quantities of urine.  It may also interfere with the  valve mechanism at the lower  end of the bladder, causing the  patient to experience difficulty  in starting or stopping the  urine stream. People with such  symptoms should consult their  physician.  The C.M.A. says, it is some,  .times necessary to have an  operation io remove a portion  of the prostrate gland in order  to relieve the obstruction to  the outflow of urine from the  bladder.  8       Coast News, Nov. 30, 1967.

GOODING,  Secretary ANIMATED  WALKING  STICk  The rambler in forests is  often surprised to discover that  a part of the casually-plucked  branch in his hand is alive. A  certain twig that was stiff and  motionless a moment ago suddenly walks off on long slender  legs, as awkwardly as if it had  never tried to walk before.  Strange and uncanny creatures  are these walking-stick insects,  with their long, pointed bodies  and with legs colored and looking exactly like glossy twigs  and leaf petioles. While .only  one species (wingless) is found  in      British      Columbia      and  throughout North America, a  tropical variety is rendered  even more deceptive with wings  that are veined like leaves.  Walking-stick insects are very  casual mothers, dropping their  eggis on the ground under the  trees, where, they are left to  their fate.

JEAN MAINIL, Returning Officer  The vast majority of accidents are caused by a single  driver's losing control of his  vehicle, according to a report  in Bus & Truck Transport. In  a study of 111 accidents in  which 146. occupants were killed over a three-year period,  two accident researchers examined victims for the causes  of death, the body areas injured and the structures that  had caused the injuries.  Their findings: 84% of accidents had occurred on the open  road, not at intersections, and  the majority, 60% of the total,  were one-car collisions with  some obstacle on the roadway.  About half the accidents involving more than one car resulted from one vehicle invading the roadway of another by  .crossing the centre line or  median. In other words, the  vast majority of accidents were  caused by a single driver's losing control of his  car.  More than half the vehicles  involved in one-car collisions  struck trees or utility poles.  The others collided with bridge  abutments, , guardrails, posts  and earth embankments, or they  rolled over because of poorly  designed ditches, slopes or other  parts of the road. While the  professional  researchers  blame  Coast News, Nov. 30, 1967.       9  drivers and poorly designed  automobile interiors for collisions, they also see a need  for clearing roadsides and doing more to prevent cross-  median accidents.  They note that in most cases  if the driver had time to regain control of his vehicle before striking something, an accident could have been prevented. They estimate that sonre  80% of the accidents they studied would not have occurred if  the roadway had been cleared  of obstacles for 33 feet from  the edge of the road.

Trouble has also arisen over  the use of a road through the  Indian reserve to the new regional district garbage dump  outside Sechelt and it was reported to the board that Clarence Joe of the band said by  phone that the road on the reserve leading to the dump might  be closed. He was informed that  the board required such information in writing and could not  deal with a telephone conversation.  Director Cliff Gilker reported  that this trouble between Indians and regional distracts, started in the Maas area and since  then has spread to Indian bands  Wherever they come into7 contact with regional districts. The  feelings of the ^Indian bands  generally is that they should  have the_r own share of taxes  for use on their reserves.  Clerk Charles Gooding reported on the situation as the result of a conference in Victoria.  Here is What Mr. Gooding passed on to the directors:  "I attended a meeting of Regional district secretaries at  Victoria on Oct. 31 and'Nov. 1.  The first day was taken up with  discussion at the department of  municipal affairs and the second day at the B.C.H.I.S.  "The   municipal   affairs   discussions  opened with  an introduction from the minister which  developed   into   a   round   table  discussion  involving the  minister, deputy minister, his advisr  ers and the secretaries and this  was a very interesting session.  ' Among the points diiscussed  were Indian Reserves within regional districts. There were continuing discussions between the  federal government and the department on the matter of en-  Sewage law  tightened  The Regional District bylaw  covering ��� sewage -has been repealed because the responsibility for the application of sewage disposal regulations has  been placed under jurisdiction of  medical health officers, operating with provincial health units,  under the Medical Health act.  This was done at Friday  night's meeting of the Regional  District board. The new regulations governing sewage disposal were approved August 24 by  Order-in-Council and under it  no person shall commence construction or installation of a septic tank or sewage disposal system unless a permit has been  obtained from the authority  having jurisdiction. Construction shall not commence until  a permit has been obtained.  This removes from the jurisdiction of the Regional District ���  board any authority in connection wiith septic tanks or sewage  disposal systems.  Having repealed the district  sewage bylaw directors turned  their attention to a request  from the medical health officer  of Coast-Garibaldi' Health Unit  who asked that the building inspector be used to help with  sewage inspections. Dr. Reynolds said regulations must be  strictly enforced and in the  meantime he was endeavouring  to obtain the necessary help to  cover inspections. Clerk Charles  Gooding informed the directors  the board was having more  grief over septic tanks than anything else and it was bad public relations for the board.  Chairman Norman Watson  suggested that if the government desired to raise sewage  standards it should hire more  people to look after them. He  felt the government was pinching too hard.  The directors decided on a  motion by director Lome Wolverton that the board wished to  co-operate but suggested the  work be done on a cost sharing  basis. It was pointed out that  next summer when the building  inspector's work became heavier it would be necessary to  hire further help.  abling legislation which would  permit Indian communities to  incorporate and take advantage  of the-provincial municipal services. Existing regional district  services could be applied to Reserve lands only at the request  of the Indians themselves. In  many areas regulations are applied to leased land.  "There was considerable discussion on the matter of alternate directors in the electoral  areas but the minister was adamant that the existing method ���  of appointment under the act  would stand.  "The session then resold id  into three groups, administration, planning and finance, under the respective municipal department- directors. The groups  interchanged and' again met as  a; whole to discuss the major  points raised. A great deal of  the matter discussed was administrative detail and in general  the attitude was that both they  and the regional districts will  have to make the best use of  the limited legislation available and adapt.it where necessary to meet local situations.  "I discussed planning with the  director, Don South, and it  would seem that their policy is  to continue to operate as planners for such districts as ourselves. Fiinance was mainly  concerned with discussions on  capital budgeting and I think it  would be advisable at the time  of the annual budget next year  for us to draw up a capital bud  get.  The day spent with BOHIS  was of interest to me but not  having any background in hospital financing I could not follow  all the discussions. It was apparent very soon after ! the  meeting opened that a simple  change-over on Jan. 1 of all the  Hospital Improvement Districts  to Regional Districts was impossible under the rules that had  been set up. Very briefly the  talk by the deputy minister, Mr.  Cox, advised us that the regional hospital board, identically the  same as the regional district  board, would be respons-ble for  the capital financing of the hospitals within the regional hospital district. They would act on  advice and recommendations  from hospital advisory committees. We shall probably be involved with setting up a hospital district early in 1868."

Whittaker beach  coffacie burns  Whittaker Beach, between  Langdale and Port Mellon, has  been visited by what is suspected as juveniles who broke  into four cottages and set one  of them on fire. If it had not  been for the work of Lloyd Bingley and' Bob Wilson the fire  could have engulfed the others.  Evidence left at the scene included a gasoline can which  had been scorched possibly by  an explosion. The theory is that  whoever handled it must have  suffered at least singed eyebrows an_l other scorching.  ROMP have investigated and  are now working on what evi-  dence they have.  A   PORTABLE  SCHOOL  At Aklavik ,the delta town  at the mouth of the Mackenzie  River, school this October is  a cluster of portable 10 classroom schools for 160 Eskimo,  Indian and other children, The  units are set on blocks above  the permafrost and are equipped with all the facilities of a  modern schoolroom.  Coast News  Phone  886-2622  Just over two years ago,  small group of Christians, under  the leadership of Rev. Samuel  Cassells of West Sechelt, bought  a piece of land in D'avis Bay  and proceeded to build themselves a new church. The  ground was broken and a basement dug.  Apart from the land, which is  not yet fully paid for, a building of two stories, measuring  60 x 25, has been erected, by  voluntary labor. The lower floor  is ready for use; and is being  opened free of debt. There have  been no fund-raising schemes,  and the people involved are not  monied people, but their faith  in God proved what can be done  in this materialistic age.  From far and near money  came in but never in large amounts. Ah old church in North  Vancouver was to be demolished to make way for an apartment block, and the members  of the new church were offered  any of the fittings and furnishings they washed. Thus, with  willing hands, and the minimum  in transport costs, all the windows, most doors, pews, chairs,  lighting fixtures and other items  were brought up to Davis Bay.  The cost of labor was kept  low by volunteer help, some of  whom came from as far away  as Spokane from the Fourth  Memorial Church, carpenters,  school teachers, a dentist, a  preacher, an automotive mechanic, all aible men and keen,  and as many as could brought  their power tools with them.  Mr. Cassells himself has missed  very few work days during all  this   time.  The women, also, must be given credit for the work they  have put in, wherever possible  and helping with the painting  and such like. A local man has  offered, at his own expense, to  install cupboards in the kitchen  after Christmas, and another  has offered to make the pulpit  in time for Christmas. A lady,  now one of the members, formerly of Vancouver, sent her  piano while a local gentleman  gave an organ, and another a  Communion service. .All these  gifts, whether money or m'ater-  ials, were given without any  ' solicitation  whatsoever.  Next summer, the Spokane  volunteers plan to return to Davis Bay and help finish the top  floor, which will be the church  proper. Meanwhile, services will  be held in the lower part of the  building, starting Dec. 3. There  a will be "two services on Sunday,  11:15 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. and  also a Sunday School at 10 a.m.  A midweek service will be held  on Wednesday evenings at 7:30  p.m. and a special Children's  program each Friday evening  at 6:45 p.m.  Mrs. Cassells will be Sunday  School superintendent and has  a staff of local teachers helping. Rev. S. Cassells is the minister of the new Sunshine Coast  Gospel Church, on the corner  of Davis Bay road and Arbutus,  beside the school. The building  stands as a monument to God's  faithfulness   and   a   proof   that  prayer can accomplish miracles  Local companies employed  were Simpkins for cement, Sim  Electric on 7 wiring, Rockgas  Propane for heating and Tilli-  cum   Plumbers,   plumibing.
