 .V^etarliu B�� C��  SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 9, Feb. 29, 1968.  10c per copy.  meeting  One hundred thirty parents,  including some teachers heard  a speaker explain why we need*  edi a community college at the  monthly school district educational meeting Monday night in  Elphinstone school.  ,       7  Mr. Leslie Brooks, adult education director for North and  West Vancouver school districts  and -secretary of the North  Shore Community College coordinating committee' explained,  as fully as he could why the  area should join the proposed  Community College.  With him was a panel of people of this area under the chairmanship of Frank Fuller, adult  education director of this school  ' district. They and Mr. Brooks  answered questions.  Mr. Brooks pointed out that  students might be able to attend  regardless of the situation in  this school district as regards  the plebiscite but they stand the  best chance of attending if the  area votes to join.  He explained there were 40  classrooms at the West Van  High school so there would be  plenty of room. Classes would  be held four nights a week providing 24 hours of instruction.  There would be five courses'  with one-ahd-one-half hour per  iods during a 16 week term.  University classes run as high  as 400 'students, but the college  classes would be smaller. However standards would be the  same as at universities. Student  fees and local taxes plus 50% of  costs from- the government  would provide financing.^ fi%. .^  Furthermore, he said, extension courses could be offered  people in this area when the  need arose. A grade 13 in this  area would cost practically the  same amount as what will be  spent on the college by this area  in the initial stages. He visualiz;-  ed the growth of a college population for this area and cited  examples of such experience in  other areas. He did not visualize any trouble in obtaining  teachers, in fact he had some  applications, already. Teachers  would have to have a masters  degree before being accepted.  When questioned aibout possible secretarial courses he could  not answer yet as there would  be staff problems but he did not  expect difficulties.  Local woman  to be on TV  Mrs. Celia Fisher, trustee on  the school board of Sechelt district, will be interviewed on TV  next week on Channel 6, Wednesday, March 6. Mrs. Fisher  will appear on Ida Clarkson's  program which starts at noon.  The subject will be the proposed North Shore Community  College, and Mrs. Fisher will  explain the need for this post  secondary school facility to  serve students in the Sechelt  school, district.  Mrs .Fisher is also on. the Ci-  t:zens' committee working for  the college and plans are under  way to canvass the area with information on the college and  ask all homeowners and' also  those who rent, to be sure to get  out and vote March 7.  Others chairing committees  include Ed Sherman, Port Mellon and Mrs. Marion West, Gibsons.  Principal W. S. Potter of Elphinstone school offering an explanation of the need for a wider education said that in the  past eight years schooling was  considered essential. Today the  requirement is from 13 to 14  years to get the type of education that qualifies a person for  present requirements.  Mr. Ed Sherman, Canadian  Forest Products mill manager  emphasized that the type of education needed today required  technological institute training  as essential. The pace for hu-  man knowledge was accelerating. Mr. Brooks, found that the  larger the institution the smaller the individual student became.  Questions from the audience  came from about a dozen people out of the 130 present. The  questions were chiefly on how  the college would operate, some  leaned towards wondering why  the college was necessary for  an area of this size but others  were seeking information as to  how it would run and what it  would do.  Student Mary Lamb of Elphinstone when asked what students thought of the college said  she felt they were more interested in university but not much  discussion had taken place on  the subject. The meeting lasted about two hours.  Here are the first limericks as  turned in to the Coast News.  Try your skill at them.

According to the Coast News  20 Years Ago column in this  issue/; a ^Gibsons fireball com-,  Yrhittee 7of five - was delegated  to draw up plans for a firehall.  Today the fire department, now  a Gibsons and area department  has two firehalls and up-to-date  equipment including a new $21.-  000 fire truck.       ,  Thursday, night, of last week,  the annual meeting of the Fire  Protection District under which  the firemen operate was held  in the firehall. Attending were  12 persons, seven of them firemen, two executive , members  and three of the general public. V  Chairman Cecil Chamberlin  and Secretary Wilgo Wireri in  making their reports were  pleased they did not have to  worry about collecting Ifunds  for the department. Now as a  fire district the assessment is.  collected v:a taxation from all  taxpayers.

A budget for this  year of $1,950 was debated  some believing it was a bare  bones budget which should be  increased. Lack of ��������� attention  from the public.at annual meetings drew comment from various members ranging ��� from  spending-more money resulting  in a protest from the public  to lett'ng the firemen carry on  and not worry about lack of  public interest.  It was pointed out that the  average meeting, and last  Thursday's meeting was an  average one, saw more firemen present than public.  The argument which also  concerned the budget resulted  in a motion passing that the  situation be surveyed and a  report made to set a guideline  for next year's budget.  The firemen of both divisions,  inside and outside the municipality were congratulated by  ���the chairman for the work they  had done during the past year.  Bypass outlined to  Regional District hd  LAN&0&&-S  The provincial planning department has plotted a map  showing a bypass route from  Langdale to a point about three-  quarters of a mile beyond Seaview Cemetery which contains  three ways of getting down to  Reid road area running westerly from North Road.  A map of the route was dis-  . played Friday night at the Regional   District   board   meeting  at Davis Bay by Mr. Jawanda  of the provincial planning department. He was asked to  come, to explain to the board  what he could about the bypass  road.  According to his map the  road runs directly off the entrance to the ferry slip up Langdale Creek area curving in a  loop to meet North road about  a  quarter-mile before it reach-  Committees formed  Chairman Frank West of the  Sunshine Coast Regional district  board when naming committee  chairmen at Friday night's  meeting urged committee chairmen to call on citizens as required for help and to maintain  a liaison with the numerous organizations.  Director Archie Rutherford  was named chairman Of the finance committee along with the  chairman. Mr. Rutherford will  also be chairman of garbage  reollection, "-Director: Gilker will  look after existing sites and Director Tyner, acquisition problems.  Chairman of the health com-  ���n'ttee will be Director Adele  deLange;; planning and bylaws  Director Wolverton; recreation  and parks-, Director Gilker; water survey, Director Wolverton  and special projects, Director  Hubbs.  bershp fee based on population  is $195.  If it can be arranged Direc-  ton , Wolverton will attend a  Spokane convention covering  parks and recreation on March  21, 22 and 23.  Further consideration was  given the problem of Rev. Walter S. Ackroyd's Pender Harbour Tabernacle in Construction  of his church. Mr. Ackroyd informed the board by letter what  had occurred since the building was started back in 1954  andYwhatlhad occurred since  the Regional District had passed its " bylaw covering building  construction. The present building inspector wants a building  permit to be taken out. Mr. Ackroyd maintains he does not have  to. The matter was turned over  to the planning committee for  consideration.  es the juncture of North and  Cemetery roads. It then crosses  the paved section of North road  in vicinity of the firehall then  turns to run parallel to Reid arid  Sunshine Coast highway level  with Russell road and, continues  westerly to a point on Sunshine  Coast Highway about three-  viuarters of a mile from Seaview  Cemetery corner.  Mr. Jawanda said it would be  a 60 mph highway with service  roads on either side. This could  mean a roadway of a possible'  200 feet to accommodate the  main road and service roads  either side.  Anyone acquainted with real  estate maps can trace the road  through Lot 3 at Langdale, then  across 1401 and. Lots 20 and 21  of, 1402, through section 6 of  4692 to the firehall then across  the top third of Elphinstone  school lot and in a straight line  through to Russell Road and  continuing on to the Sunshine  Coast highway, at the corner of  Lot 904.  The planner's map also con-  ,tauied���4wo^other routes -a^  proaching North road, one  slightly beyond Reid road, joining it at Henry road then down  to Russell road. The other route  was at a slightly different angle  in its approach avoiding the  firehall area altogether.  Mr Jawanda said the school  board was satisfied with an arrangement made with the roads  On  the  problem   of  mainten-     rt.nal4mfl ,      .. ,���- ��������  ance   work   on   Indian   leased     Jjepartment   which   means   the  Regional districts can now be-     lands it was revealed the roads     ���j��� f ���  *f opposed to having  come members of the Union of department treated such lands ijjIP]1jn~,tone school ground top  B.C.

Problem considered  HEADLEY TO SPEAK  Mr.   Klyne   Headley,    school  district   supervisor   of   music,  Mrs. D. C. Horner, leader of  the evening unit took Japan as  her subject for the United  Church Women meeting Feb.  22. She said half of the one percent of Christians in Japan are  Protestants. An accompanying  color film with sound increased  the knowledge of Japan providing a deeper understanding of  Japanese progress and also  problems.  It pointed up the effectiveness  of the progress of Kyodan (the  United Church of Christ in Japan) leaving an awareness of  their difficulties showing how  many become confused by conflicting ideologies and pressures.  The discussion which followed  revealed surprise, pleasure and  concern for Japan today.  The lighting of three candles  was Mrs. Tucker Forsythe's devotional      theme.

Neilson's  grade 1 class and Mrs. M.  Hooker's grade 3 class from  Roberts Creek will help demonstrate the new methods.  Boyes appealed for help in locating a leader for the Explorer club. Mrs. Nelson Moore, citizenship and social action chair  man asked that all members  read the February Chatelaine  article on Women of B.C. with  special   attention   to   Georgina -  Archie.  The Vancouver Council of  Women has appealed to the  Presbyterial UCW for support  in pointing up the discrimination  of this article which although  quite true does not make a com-  arison on an equal economic level. Those believing this article  to be discriminatory are asked  to write their disapproval to  Mrs. J. P. O'Donnell, citizenship  chairman, Vancouver Council  of Women.  The presbyterial delegates,  Mrs. Allen Boyes, Mrs. Evelyn  Clarke, Miss Fannie Grant,  Mrs. Nelson Moore and Mrs.  R. W. Vernon reported informally in dialogue of their worthwhile experience at the. UCW  Presbyterial annual meeting in  Vancouver  SATURDAY   SYMPOSIUM  Is change necessary to educational philosophy? This will  be the subject for a community  concerned with, the rising costs  of education at a symposium in  the United Church Education  Centre, Gibsons, on Sat., March  2 from 10 a.m. until noon.  Sechelt's council at its Wednesday night meeting of last  week received an agreement for  consideration from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board  covering the use of the board's  building inspector for Sechelt's  construction work.  The matter was tabled for  consideration at the next meeting. With Councillor Adele deLange as Sechelt's representative on the Regional Board she  was delegated to inquire from  the Regional board at its Friday  night meeting what would be  the required financial terms.  At Friday night's Regional  District meeting Councillor deLange discussed the problem  with the board. The finance  committee of the Regional board  will take the matter up with  Sechelt's officials and see what  terms can be arranged.  Council decided to see what  the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit  could do towards helping out in  Sechelt sewage problems Director P. J. Reynolds wrote that  the health unit could be consulted for help so council decided to find out what help would  be available. Council also decided to get the engineering firm  of Dayton and Knight's sewage  survey four years ago updated',  the financial aspects of which  it was estimated would now be  20 to 25 percent higher. When  it came to spending money,  Chairman Swain suggested  council should make up its mind  what it wanted to do first, obtain a water system or work on  sewage. Water will be required  for a sewage system.  A Lions club letter thanked  council for its $450 grant towards the May Day function.  NDP  Play strong game  On Saturday, Feb. 24 Gibsons  Legion Juvenile Soccer team  played in North Vancouver  against the Bimdett B. The  team travelled to Horseshoe  Bay by water taxi and were  met by vehicles supplied by the  opposing team.  The ground was very muddy  which made the going heavy  ��� but it seemed to suit.the  boys from Gibsons who were  much lighter than the North  Vancouver  club.  Gibsons pressed home the attack obtaining four corner  kicks in the first hr.lr and were  unlucky not to score.  After the interval Gibsons  were in the attack again and  the opening goal was scored  by Roy Smith who had been  playing an outstanding game at  outside right. This was followed by another goal by young  Schindel and five minutes before the final whistle a long  drive by Barry Blatchford made  it 3.  The Gibsons team played a  good strong game in spite of  only having 11 players, which  did not allow them to have any  substitutions.  meeting  The newly formed Sunshine  Coast NDP club will meet Tuesday, March 5, 8 p.m. A general  meeting will be held at the  Howe Sound Union hall, (the  old Hilltop Building Supplies  building). This meeting will be  for an election of officers, signing up of new members and  ageneral discussion of various  topics.  Anyone interested in joining  this club or helping to support  it are most welcome to attend.  It is hoped that meetings will  be held at various places on  the Sunshine Coast.

Dr. Pat McGeer, Vancouver-Point Grey Liberal MLA, discussing budget matters in the provincial legislature developed a theme  which should interest a great number of people. It concerns housing and as Dr. McGeer put it it was one of the most disappointing  aspects of the budget.  His argument \*as that home ownership for thousands of families is utterly impossible in Canada of 1968. He maintained government policy on housing was unrealistic. Thousands of B.C. families would not be able to share in home acquisition bounties and  home-owner grants.  Government policy he maintained assisted some families but  was beyond the reach of the thousands of low income families. In  this he is right because the time when families scrimped and saved  in order to own their own shelter, has long gone. Today's family  is living right up to the last cent of income, chiefly owing to social  pressures. When young couples now marry they must start married  life at the same level as the parental homes which they left, not  caring one hoot how long it took those parents to obtain what they  now have.  Accepting this as a standard of living for today it would appear that government policy is somewhat unrealistic. He asks how  many people buying their first home fall into the $12 to $13 thousand a year income bracket? This, he argued was the income needed for home purchases these days.  Dr. McGeen maintained that a substantial portion of the money  for housing should go into the development of housing for people  who earn less than $7,000 a year. The provincial $25 million home  acquisition fund combined with federal money could build $100  million worth of housing for people earning less than $7,000 yearly.  He pointed out that the ratio of new accommodations which  was at one time 30 percent rental and 70 percent new homes is  now 60 percent rental and 40 percent new homes. He added that  "$500 million lies this year on the federal table for housing needs.  Bend over and pick some of it up for citizens of B.iC." With this  ���we think the greater number of people would agree heartily.  They are the same men!  If one seeks an organization in Gibsons area which deserves a  pat on the back the Coast News can recommend the Volunteer  Fire Services.  Twenty years ago a committee of five men was named by the  Ratepayers' Association to draw up plans for a firehall. That firehall stands today on Gower Point Road with many improvements  added. There is also now a firehall on North Road.  It is only recently that the district and Gibsons firemen (usual-,  ly the same men) got together and amalgamated1 fire equipment.  The firemen, who have never been found wanting when the  fire call sounded, have done a great deal towards keeping the fire  -menace under control not only in firefighting but in inspections.  Fire rates in Gibsons area are low thanks to.them.  So if you feel in the mood to spread a little cheer where it is  most deserved, pass it on to the firemen. They will appreciate it.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Tenders have been called for  the clearing and burning on the  site of the proposed Roberts  Creek school and negotiations  ere under way with Pender  Harbor Community club for a  clearing  of the  school site.  New president of Gibsons  Recreational society is Eric  Inglis with Jim Drummond,  vice-president and Cliff Leach,  secietary. H. Gough offered the  use of his truck for transportation of equipment.  Gibsons 1948 tax rate was set  at 10 mills and the water rate  was raised to $15 to cover costs  of   improving   the   intake.  On advice from Victoria,  Headlands residents decided to  drop the idea of amalgamating  with the village of Gibsons  landing.  A Gibsons firehall commits  tee of five, Eric Inglis, Cliff  Leach, Dick Fitchett, Ben  Knight and W. Skellett was appointed by the Ratepayers association. They were to draw  up plans and start work immediately.  William Youngson was named  prexy   of  the  newly organized  Sechelt district Liberal association for the purpose of electing  officers.  Mrs. Robert Sharpe was reelected president at the 10th  annual meeting of Pender Harbor's auxiliary to St. Mary's  hospital.  10 YEARS AGO  Four federal election candidates were nominated for the  March 31 general election. They  were Hon. James Sinclair, Liberal; W. H. Payne, Conservative; Hugh Clifford, CCF and  Edward Gallant,  Social  Credit.  Dave Herrin was elected  noble grand of the Sunshine  Coast Lodge No. 76 IOOF. Robert Wilson was elected vice  noble grand.  A grant of $250 was given  Sechelt Volunteer Fire department with the understanding  of an increase in the grant  when  the  budget  is   discussed.  Ben Lang reports a real tussle with a 23 pound salmon  and Bob Norminton landed an  11 pounder in a fishing expedition at Secret Cove.  With the College -Nov^,campaign underway, we have received many. calls asking questions about the proposed community college to serve the Sechelt area, as well as Howe  Sound, North Vancouver and  West Vancouver.  To answer as many as possible, we have set up a question  and  answer  format.  How long would the college  be at West Van. High? Have  we any assurance that we will  not be faced with a high cost  for a new campus?  The highest cost you will be  faced with, as a resident of the  area with a home valued at  $25,000, would be $3.50 tax per  year on the basis of the campus  being at West Vancouver High  School. As this school can  handle up to 2,000 pupils, has  superb facilities for such a college (a half-million dollar new  vocational wing, nine labs,  theatre, four gymn floors, etc.)  it is expected it will handle  the enrolment for several years.  Vancouver City College has  been in operation for six years  and has now 3,768 pupils, serving a much higher population  density area.  Voters now are only asked  to approve the establishment  of a college. At any time in the  future, should the enrolment  outgrow  the  nigh   school,   only  then would a money, bylaw be  put to the voters. They would;  have the opportunity to support  or reject this bylaw, and full  costs for a new college would  be set out on the ballot.  Why was it necessary to have  a vote at this time. Why not  wait until the municipal elections in December and save  this  extra expense?  The college to serve the four  school districts on the North  Shore of Burrard Inlet has been  under study by an interim college committee for three years.  First a study was commissioned showing the need. With  that established, the government was petitioned to allow  a plebiscite asking approval, to  establish a community college.  While the government in 1963  endorsed the plan by Dr. J.  B. MacDonald advocating community colleges throughout the  province, permission was not  given the North Shore for a  plebiscite until February 2,  1968.  The committee had a choice.  It could delay the plebiscite until the municipal elections in  December 1968 and start the  college in September 1969. Or  it could call for a vote at the  earliest possible moment  (March 7) and when passed,  would have barely time enough  to  organize the     college     for  This man Trudeau! D���^  Who is this man Trudeau?  What does he stand for? And  why his sudden popularity?  These are among the questions  which the delegates to the Liberal leadership convention will  be asking themselves as they  go about electing the next  prime   minister  of  Canada.  Why all the interest? Why  is Pierre Elliott Trudeau suddenly the man of the hour?  True, he brings intelligence ���  and frankness ��� to politics.  But there is more to it than  that. The Canadian electorate  want to see a new face in Ottawa. And this impatience has  infected the rank and file of  the Liberal party as well.  The new minister of justice  was only elected in 1965. He  has only been in the cabinet  for a year. And his speeches  have been few and far between.  Fortunately he has been a prolific writer. So it is to his various books and articles that we  must turn in order to get a  better idea of the man himself.  Here are a few excerpts:  ��� There Should be a declaration of (human) rights  entrenched in the Constitution which would be  binding on all Canadians  and on all our governments.  ��� Cultural pro tectionism,  like the economic, tends to  weaken a culture.  ��� In matters of international trade, we must move  ���towards a free exchange  of goods  and services.  ��� We should leave social services to the provinces. On  the other hand the central government (should)  take  more     responsibility  in  the  field  of  economic  development.  ��� Canadian capital should  be induced to enter more  into the speculative sector where the yield is  higher;  and finally,  ��� The time has come to borrow from the architect  ���that discipline that he  calls functional and throw  out the thousand prejudices with which the past  burdens the present. Let  us cast down the totems,  break the taboos. Or better, let us consider them  void. Dispassionately, let  us be intelligent.  Too little administrative experience to run things in Ottawa? Perhaps. Not egotistical  enough to be a real leader?  Maybe. But able to handle the  house of commons? Yes. Pierre  Elliott Trudeau has a way with  him and his star never shines  brighter than when he rises to  speak to a host of M.P.s, who  can quickly understand and  usually believe, everything he  says.  This man who piloted the new  divorce bill through parliament  last fall and is now rewriting  Canada's Criminal Code is of  mixed parentage. His father  was a wealthy, self-made  French Canadian (Champlain  Oil Products Ltd.). His mother  was English. Pierre Elliot Trudeau has studied law and economics. Among other things he  is a graduate of Harvard, the  University of Paris and the  London School of Economics.  And he is a world traveller.  Perhaps this, more than anything else, contributes to his  broadly based and essentially  universal   approach   to   things.

You will have to  obtain the consent of both parents and, being under 16, you  will     have     to  obtain a court  order authorizing the marriage.

You will have also to obtain  a second court order dispensing with your father's consent.  In order to obtain this you have  to prove to the satisfaction of  a judge that your father is unreasonably withholding his consent or that he is refusing his  consent from undue motives.

Ttigboatmen advocate  Trail Islands shelter  Tugboat owners have asked  the federal government to help  them obtain a necessary shelter for their craft at Trail Islands, near Sechelt.  Jack Davis, M.P., Coast-Cap-  ilano, has asked the federal min  ister of public works to look into the possibility of the development of Trail Islands for navigation and protective use, also  whether the federal government  would consider some cost-shar-  insg agreement with tug companies, involving a conventional  or floating breakwater.  In a letter to Hon. G. J. Mc-  Ilraith,, minister of public works  Mr. Davis asks for a recommendation as to whether Trail  Islands have a navigational potential as a place of refuge for  mariners. Here is what his letter contained:  "Back in 1956, the federal government took the position that  the construction of such a project could be considered if the  towboat companies were prepared to put up a 50% share of  the cost of installing a breakwater. Perhaps this is also the  position today. Were the entire  project to cost,, say, $700,000,  the federal share would be $350,  000. While this is a large sum of  money it is not out of line with  other investments when the federal government has been making in order either to protect or  to provide greater access to new  industrial developments on Can:  ada's east and west coasts.  "Recently I understand that  three Trail Islands have been  put up for sale. A fourth has already been sold to a group of  U.S. industrialists. In view of  these developments and because  their development for summer  houses could preclude the use  of the Trail Islands as a. shelter  for log booms and other tows  at times when storms are at  their height, I think a careful  study of their ultimate use for  navigation and other purposes  should be made at this time.  "Could you therefore please  have someone in your department look carefully into this  matter with a view to making  recommendations as to:  "(a) whether the development of the Trail Islands should  be considered in any way with  a view to ensuring their use for  navigation, protective, and other  purposes;   and  "(b) whether the federal government, at some future date,  would be prepared to enter in  to some cost sharing, agreement  with the industry (bearing in  mind the possibility of building  conventional or floating breakwater in that area).  "I understand that were the  federal government prepared to  take a position of supporting the  development of the Trail Islands, for navigation, protection  and other purposes, the B.C:  towboat owners would be prepared to purchase several of the  Trail Islands.    v  "Your considered answer to  this question will, of course, be  awaited with interest. ��� Jack  Davis, M.P."  The Tugboat Owners Association letter in part reads:  "The B.C. Towboat Owners'  association and other main business interests consider that the  provision of facilities for safe  navigation through such an essential waterway, was most definitely the responsibility of the  federal government. It is believed that the department of  public works ceased to be interested in this project about 1956.  The requirement has not disappeared, in fact it is even  more urgent and important today because of the increased"  use of waterborne traffic and,  therefore, the provision, of adequate refuge remains a matter  of great concern to this association.  The area inside the Lots 1386  and 1388 has, as already pointed  out, been used for shelter by  the towing fleet on the B.C.  coast for many years and the  area is listed under the reserves  or havens set up by the provincial government. The legality of  these reserves, however, is a  matter of some doubt at this  time and, because of commercial development, we can reasonably assume we may lose  some of these refuge areas, in  particular the Trail Islands reserve.  While we realize it is unlikely .  that the federal government at  this time may be prepared to  undertake the building of a  breakwater, we are wondering  if they would niake a start by  protecting the position by purchasing two islands, namely  Lots 1386 and 1387. It is believed they could be purchased for  $1,500 an acre and there is a  total of 48 acres involved. By  such action the groundwork for  an essential aid to safe navigation would-be assured.  ���G.

L. Peterson, minister  of education, airing the views  of both councils on the school  board budget. Here is the letter: Dear Mr. Peterson:  The councils of this village  and the village of Sechelt have  3ust accepted the 1968 expenditure budget of school district  No. 46 (Sechelt) with considerable reluctance.  The purpose in writing to you  is to protest the position in  which    our    municipalities are  placed by the statutory provision requiring acceptance or  arbitration, in a matter of'three-  weeks, before the effect of current legislation onv the, same  budget is known.  In Sdhool District No. 46 (Sechelt), almost 91% of the school  budget is raised in the unorganized territory, with something like 60% of this, we are  told, being on the only industrial concern, a pulp mill. The  remainder is levied on Gibsons  Village 5.5% and Sechelt Village 3.5%  With'you'only in Mind!  Get with it in '68 with a new, flattering  hairdo   that   highlights  your   personality.

Ob) That on any arbitration  of the budget they will receive  credit for only 9% of such reduction, the remaining 91% going to the unorganized area.  (c) That the expense of undertaking arbitration would not be  shared by the unorganized 91%  but would be the sole responsibility of the municipalities. ,  With both councils concerned  with directing their energies  and funds to urgent basic  needs, such as water and sewers, they are virtually precluded from going to arbitration by  the considerable odds against  them.  With such a background, a  school district need not be too  concerned about municipal approval or arbitration. In fact  we are not aware of any other  agency that presents a budget  for approval without first, having some estimate of what revenues and grants may be  forthcoming in order that a  local cost may be indicated.  Both councils hope that your  reported announcement proposing to remove approval responsibility from municipalities, and  to provide for a revision of bud-  getting procedures with a direct responsibility by the school  board to the ratepayers, will  be effective.  Yours  very   truly,  D.

Qinn��UMUttunMMiuMMimni\u\\tt\i\Muunttuiikiiittn  The Narwhal of Canada's arctic seas, or sea unicorn as it  was known to early explorers,  will be illustrated in its natural environment on a Canada  Post Office four color Wildlife  5c stamp to be released on April 10, Postmaster General Jean  Pierre Cote announces.  The new issue marks the return of John A. Crosby, of Ottawa, as a designer of Canadian  stamps. His polar bear design  was selected for use on a Canadian Wildlife issue released in  1953. The new stamp is being  produced in four colors by a  combination of the photogravure  and intaglio steel engraving processes.  The narwhal is a small whale  rarely exceeding 16 feet in  length. It owes its name, corpse  whale in old Norse, to its curious coloration: slate blue in  new born young, becoming fleck  ed with intense white patches  and splashes. In old age most of  the lower half is pure w_iite. The  most remarkable characteristic  is the tusk which develops in the  upper left jaw of the male. This  tusk may grow to a length of 7  feet and measure 3 to 4 inches  in diameter at the base. In Arctic Canada, narwhals are mainly confined to the north and east  coasts of Baffin Island and the  Repulse Bay area in northern  Hudson Bay.  &lo ������***���***���*# v��%*��*��%^ ��� ���  GALLSTONES  Gallstones are stones which  are formed from the bile salts  in the gallbladder. Bile is formed in the liver and stored in  the gallbladder. It passes from  there by way of a tube called  the common duct into the intestine, where it aids in the digestion of food. The gallbladder  is only a storage sac for bile,  and when it is removed, the  bile simply flows directly from  the liver into the intestines.  The Canadian Medical Association advises that the patient  who complains of abdominal  pain and indigestion after meals  may have gallstones. They are  usually detected by x-ray.  Gallstones may be present  without causing any symptoms,  but more commonly they cause  inflammation in the gallbladder. The patient complains of  pain and indigestion after  meals. If one of the stones escapes into "the common duct  between the gallbladder and  the intestine, it causes very extreme pain. If the stone becomes stuck in the tube, it will  block the flow of bile and the  patient  becomes   jaundiced.  Cancer of the gallbladder, although not common, is more  likely to occur when gallstones  are present, the C.M.A. reports.  When gallstones are diagnosed,  usually  by  x-ray,   surgical  * Mm  removal of the gallbladder before complications develop is  often recommended unless  there is some other health problem that makes it risky for the  patient to have an operation.

At that time she was the largest of the fleet 9,339 tons with  a speed of 13 knots and made  a triumphant and successful  passage on her maiden voyage  to Australia. On her second  homebound voyage the Waratah left Adelaide July 7, 1909,  arriving at Durham, July 25.  Next day she sailed for Capetown, South Africa and was  afterwards reported All's Well  by the S.S. Clan Mclntyre, the  last ship to sight the Waratah.  Nothing further was heard. The  Waratah disappeared with all  on board, leaving no trace, becoming one of the mysteries of  the sea.  This tragic event was a  severe blow to Mr. Lund at  the age of 72 and the Lund  Blue Anchor Line was never  the same. His two sons carried on for a while until the  line was taken over by the P  & O line. Mr. Lund passed away  on May 7, 1928 in his 91st year.  URBAN   PLANNING  E. J.

Mr. H. Klyne Headley supervisor of the school music department concurred.  This could now be made possible with the finally revised  band schedule, providing for  one regular school period and  a noon hour session weekly.  Mr. Williams declared _he  talent is certainly here and with  the continued support of the  parents and teaching staffs  there is no reason why this  community cannot eventually  boast of a concert and marching band of from 60 to 70 regular players. Already 72 students are enrolled ,23 quite advanced players and 20 enthusiastic beginners from the high  school and 30 budding musicians  scattered through the district's  four elementary schools.  Both Mr. Headley and Mr.  Williams paid tribute to the  parents, the school trustees and  principals for their continued  interest and co-operation in seeing the group over the rough  spots and particularly a warm  word for Mr. Gordon Johnson,  district superintendent of  schools, who in accepting the  recommendations contained in  a petition sponsored and c'r-  culated by the parents, made  possible the implementation of  the revised band program.  During discussion several aspects of the undertaking wee  dealt with from the parents'  point of view, including careful grading of the musical altitudes of each applicant. The  need of more direct and frequent communication between,  the parents and supervisor was  also recognized. The desirab:3i-  ty of including grade five students in this training program  was  admitted.  It was pointed out that the  curriculum set out by the provincial dept. of education in  Victoria worked more effectively in the larger schools. Mr.  Williams cited Powell River as  an example. This district with  5,000 pupils have a staff of  seven in the musical education department whereas the  local school district with 2,200  students spread over fov.r  schools, Langdale, Gibsons,  elementary and secondary, Roberts Creek and Sechelt, has  only two directors responsible  for the musical training alons  with the individual teachers.  Pender Harbour is at present  without the services of sur.h  a  teacher.  Another point brought ouf by  Mr. Williams was the salvaging of instruments and equipment from forgotten storage  areas. Instruments checked  against the school inventory,  showed a considerable number  missing. Mr. Williams will make  every effort to trace the whereabouts of the missing equipment and secure its return. An  appeal will also be directed to  former students who may not  have yet turned in their school  instruments, with the request  to leave them at the principal's  office  at  Elphinstone   school.  A member of the auxiliary  suggested it will be more gratifying to hear directly from the  students on their first performance. Mr. Williams said this  would occur though it may not  be quite up to New York Philharmonic performance but it  will be loud and clear.  Pieces of wood over 50,000  years old have been fourv'  under glacial soil deposits in  Toronto. NOTICE  ft,  Rhodes  Doctor of Opfometry  204 Vancouver Block  Vancouver, B.C.
