LIQUOR SALES 7REPORT  The 46th annual report of the  B.C. Liquor Control board covering the governmental fiscal  year ending March 31, 1697 reveals that between the two liquor store outlets on the Sunshine Coast, one in Gibsons and  the other in Sechelt, total value  of spirits, wines and malt liquors sold was $701,356.  Gibsons council Tuesday night  arranged for a cleanup week  from April 1 to 6 and will endeavour to have the nuisance  ground opened up each afternoon for the dumping of unwanted heavy materials not usually picked up during garbage  collection.  Details will be worked out for  the cleanup campaign and it is  expected it will include the asking of support from various organizations in the area to help  the elderly people by supplying  the muscle and transportation  to remove some unsightly articles that would be better disposed of at the nuisance grounds;  Co-operation is expected and  arrangements will be detailed  as the week approaches for the  cleanup.  Northwest Communicati ons  System, now" serving the Delta;  ���area, obtained from council a  trades licence so it can make a  '-: customer survey to see if it  fwould; be7 worthwhile installing  a cablevision system. The system would be using; B.C.

Ferry strike prompted emergency  measures Monday by local, Sechelt and Pender Harbour merchants, in replacing depleting  stocks of basic commodities,  particularly foodstuffs. This  condition was relieved temporarily with the arrival at Gibsons Monday of three -barges  operated by the Mercury Water  Taxi out of Horseshoe Bay.  The 16-ton cargo was consigned to-Ken's Lucky Dollar,  Co-op Store, Super-Valu, Redman's Service ,>Store and Shop,  ;��asy:-"Sec_reTL "Stofe^ staffs and  willing volunteers unloaded the  groceries, produce and .dairy  products in  record time./  Ken Watson who initiated the  shipment; praised the work of  the volunteers. ;The supplies  came from Vancouver-based  firms including Meteor Meats,  Pacific Meats, Crown Dairies,  Dairyland, W. H. Malkin and  Kelly Douglas. Mr. Watson  stated 'Jrs shipment will help  to take care of normal demands  for a week at least and others  would follow.  Apart from inconvenience and  more costly carrying charges  store business was normal, but  if the strike continued for any  length of time the added costs  might have to be passed along  to the  customer.  PTA undergoes ordeal  ��� ���' Nine members of the public,  six school teachers, the district  superintendent and one member  of the school board attended  Monday night's meeting in Elphinstone school' library to decide whether PTAs are" necessary.     ���'���;."     .  On the one hand some speakers said the PTA was a failure  as it now operates. The chief  argument was that the educational system was becoming so  complex that even the teachers  were unable to grasp it in its  entirety, much less PTA members.  On the other hand it was argued that a parent-teacher combination was necessary in the  development of children. There  was need for an organization to  make the co-operation a reality. It was also suggested that  these days there was so much  organization that we were being meetinged to death. Teaching like logging required the use  of energy and like the logger  the teacher preferred to remain  in his or her own cabbage patch  after hours.  There was some preference in  the parent-teacher plan to use  the school report cards as the  best way of meeting the parents  some teachers regarding contact of more value to parents  than what is done by the PTA.  Operations of the PTA were  discussed and some thought the  PTA should be more active in  the social side of school functions, taking a more active approach to its association with  the school staffs, also there was  not enough co-operation with  school administrations.  An argument put forth was  that there was no need for the  PTA to regard itself as a pressure group if it had a good  cause for which tft work. As an  example it was suggested that  the PTA could perhaps do more  work in explaining the school  budget and how the money was  used.  Superintendent Gordon Johnson in evaluating the discussion  remarked so much was said  that said so little. He found five  areas of agreement. One was  what the PTA should not be.  Teachers and parents agree that  the PTA was not successful. A  PTA was not successful when  it was composed of 25 parents  and one teacher.  Further, Supt. Johnson said  the PTA needs a cause. However he added that the PTA members had a sincere desire to be  informed. Mr. Johnson added  that there was one field in  which the PTA could do good  work during the coming months  and that was to work on behalf  of the coming school referendum  which he maintained was going  to be a tough one to handle.  7 Sechelt reports no panic buying although purchasing had  been heavier than usual over  last weekend. While the laid  down cost of transporting foodstuffs had more than doubled  iii the present emergency, unless the. strike was drawn' out,  no upward adjustment in prices  was contemplated by his company. Meantime normal stocks  of bas;c staples were adequate.  7 Monday's food shipment was  followed at 4 - a.m. v Tuesday  .with the arrival at Hillside of  -$?? -.��self-propelled barge, operat-  7 ed by Georgia Transport out  of Vancouver. On board was an  I & S Trailer with its load of  dry merchandise and ' school  supplies. AnoMier followed on  Tuesday. It contained a large  consignment of food stuffs, produce, including freight for the  Canadian'Forest Products Mill  at Port Mellon and supplies for  Pender Harbour, transshipped  to that point by Hansen's  Transport. It is also reported  ! hat several fish boats have  been commissioned to bring  other emergency supplies.  A limited passenger service  is being provided by Mercury  Water. Taxi. F; Wright, manager of this carrier, reports  four crossings from Gibsons to  Horseshoe Bay Daily. The demand for this service has been  heavy and extra boats will be  placed on the run this weekend  should the  traffic require.  Tyee Airways also report increasing demands on their Se-  chelt-Gibsons-Vancouver passenger and freight service. The  company's three aircraft making as many as five return  flights daily, with a record of  55 passengers flown into Vancouver Monday, arid particularly heavy booking is noted  from Gibsons.  Al Campbell, manager of  Tyee said his pilots and operations crew are coping well  with the emergency conditions  and are prepared to double or  triple their regular daily schedule between  these points.  One interesting feature in the  Sunshine Coast airlift is the  number of older people making  their first flight and enjoying  the novelty of air travel.  BOOKS WANTED  The Gibsons Hi-C have been  asked to assist the Older Boys  Parliament of, B.C. in a book  drive from now till the end of  March. The books will be sent  to various Indian schools and  hospitals in B.C. Books for all  ages, kindergarten to adult level, are needed. Please do not  send badly worn books or books  in bad taste. There will be a  box at the Coast News for those  wishing to donate books.  r'^imnimimmnwmumROTunuiiuuuuHuuuuuiiinumraa  '"Weaver  Ellen Paul. 84. dies  By ED. THOMSON  Sunday morning on the deserted rain-swept porch of Our  Lady of Lourdes, the traditional  church of the Sechelt Indians,  a bedraggled dog from the  nearby reservation moaned dis-  . consolately as he kept his lone  watch outside the closed doors  of the tall spired church by  the  sea.  ..  Inside crowded to its' doors,  Indian and white joined in paying final tribute to Mrs. Mary  Ellen Paul (Hopalitch, the  Weaver) the last of the tribal  basket makers and grand old  lady of  the  village.  At the Requiem Mass celebrat  ed by Father Power and assisted by Father MacDonald, the  band's Parish Priest, special  recognition of Mrs. Paul's lifelong contribution to her people, the church and her family  was  accorded.  Father MacDonald from the  chancel steps pointed out that  in this life, it is not the imparlance, of who you are, but  what  you are.  Mary Ellen, a woman imbued  with   deep   and   abiding   faith  in her religion, her home and  daily   life   held   fast   to   those  unchanging    principles,    would  ever  be   an  inspiration   to all..  Clarence Joe rose and spoke  feelingly    of    this     hereditory  member of a  highly  regarded  family,   of   Mary  Ellen's   constant   efforts   in   raising   funds  to     help     the  community,  the  school   and   her  church,   pointing   out she  had  worked  hard  and long to make possible the  new   lighting,   the   Stations   of  the   Cross  and   the   altar   and  chancel statuary,  of these and  many other good deeds she will  always be remembered as one  of our truly great  people and  the    last    surviving hereditory  member   of the   third   generation  who in  their time did so  much to unify the Band.  Clarence, in expressing sympathy for the bereaved family,  pointed out that in spite of the  large    turnout    present,  many  more relatives and friends were  prevented from attending by  the ferry strike. Later in private, he remarked that in the  old days, before such penalizing restrictions that come with  civilization, when the word  went out of a death in the Band,  fleets of cedar dugout canoes  from Vancouver, Nanaimo ami  all up and down the coast, sped  the relatives and friends to the  place of ihourning.  Mrs. Sam Dawe, a girlhood  companion speaks with great  affection of Mary Ellen, a  daughter of William Jeffries,  an English sailor who in the  windjammer, days of sail in the  mid '80s, forsook the sea to  marry Mary Ellen's mother,  Tghagaute, a tribal princess of  the Sechelts and settled for the  remainder of his days on the  reservation where he became  an accepted member of the  Band and a respected member  of the community. He and his  wife raised a family of five  daughters, Mary Ellen Paul,  Mrs. Maryann Rouse, Mrs.  Susan Page, Mrs. Emily Mitchell, mother of Chief Billy  Mitchell and Mrs. Janette August, also four sons William,  Alfred, Abraham and Robert  Jeffries.  In Mrs. Dawe's recollections  of Mary Ellen, a beautiful girl,  who in earlier days was as militant as any English suffragette  in standing up for the rights  of her people, always impressive in her convictions and  carriage and outstanding in her  chosen craftsmanship of basket  weaving.  Just a year ago, Mrs. Dawe  had the pleasure of presenting  Mrs. Paul with a Centennial  Pioneer medal on a visit to the  Carlton Nursing home, Vancouver where Mary Ellen was a  patient for several years. It  was a happy reunion.of two  old friends and the day being  mild, Mrs. Dawe wheeled the  patient, in excellent spirits, out  (Continued on Page 8) Coast News, Feb. 22, 1968.

When Premier Bennett maintains his huge budget is defla-  tionary.he is .using the word deflationary as a smoke screen behind which he can operate with impunity. To begin with his tremendous project involving the B.C. Hydro Peace River power  construction has produced the greatest inflationary trend that  this province has experienced up to the present. He curtailed  the labor market, forced wages upwards, and diverted funds  away from public use thereby creating a cost factor which has  affected practically all school districts and most other governmental organizations at public level.  Restraint is another word he likes to use. In this year's budget address he had this to say: Mr. Speaker the word restraint  is a popular one these days. In my 1967 address for example I  referred to it on at least two occasions as follows: "While the  government has recently asked for restraint as an aid in the  fight to hold inflationary wage and price pressures in check,  it has practiced restraint itself for 15 years by living within its  income." And in riiy concluson (he continued) I stated "our aims  can only be obtained if intelligent restraint is exercised at all  levels of our economy."  Well ��� if the average Mr. and Mrs.? Joe Blow were able to  budget themselves on collected mandatory public revenues they  could afford to plead restraint and live * within their income ���  and show a surplus. This they could do without Mie aid of mirrors.     ���-..-������.  When it comes to horse and buggy thinking which he claims  surrounds Ottawa he should revise his own thinking about  the  meaning of the  words  deflation  and restraint.  Neither of these  economic factors have anything to do with British Columbia So-,  cial Credit government muddling when it comes to using public  money.  . The premier every now and again raises the bogey of Socialism with the implied threat ������ elect me or else. Perhaps during his  fits of virtue he overlooks his own "socialistic" practices which  make orthodox socialism seem tame. He also overlooks the fact  that Saskatchewan had a GCF government for 10 years' and survived. Perhaps he has forgotten that his wealthy Social Credit  machine spent a considerable amount of money in Saskatchewan  trying to crack the hold of the CCF some years ago. His efforts  were rejected, soundly.  Let's not kid ourselves that the world comes to an end when a  government falls. Let's not kid ourselves that other poliicians are  unable to do better than the present Social Credit government. If  the present government is the best B.C. has ever had, British Columbians have a very sorry political past.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  D. M. Matheson of Quality  Surveys outlined a metropolitan water board to Gibsons  Board of Trade to cover the  area from Hopkins Landing to  Sechelt. A committee of P. G.  McPherson, H. Tibbs and Gordon Ballentine was formed to  check with existing water systems to see what could be done.  Charles Brookman was elected president fo Sechelt's Canadian Legion branch 140, with  Fred Mills and J. Archer vice-  presidents.  A license has been granted  the Veteran's Memorial Hall to  serve beer Saturday nights,  from 7 to 11 p.m.  10   YEARS   AGO  Gibsons Elementary PTA  celebrated its 12th birthday.  The school in 1946 had 80 pupils  and four teachers and the first  chairman was Mrs. Nestman.  Sandra Arthur and Roger  Lucken were chosen as delegates to the 11th annual High  School  Conference  at  UBC.  Mrs. Jean Rousseau was  elected president of Legion  branch 112, Pender Harbor  auxiliary.  Tenders were called ��for moving the Port Mellon church 100  feet and placing it on a prepared basement foundation.  Twenty years ago ' the columns of the- Coast News contained stories reminiscent of  what happened recently in the  area mentioned .track in 1948.  The heading on the story  written by Earle Gray read,  Mass Meeting at Sechelt Discusses Incorporation. The following is what Mr. Gray wrote:  Residents of Sechelt, Selma  Park and Davis Bay thoroughly discussed the proposed plan  to incorporate Sechelt, at a  mass meeting at the Legion  Hall last Friday night (March  5). The meeting was sponsored  by the Sechelt Improvement association:  After a 33 to 14 vote to continue investigating the possibility of incorporation the following committee was elected  to probe the advantages and  disadvantages: Mr. W. Young-  son; Ted Osborne, R. Beatt,  Mrs. W. Waddell and Mrs. F.  French.  Before a packed hall of eager  listeners, Mr. W. Morrison,  chairman of the meeting, Mr.  J. Parker, secretary of the Sechelt Improvement association  and Mr. F. Archer outlined  several advantages ensuing  from incorporation.  Mr. S.

We want to make a private adoption of an illegitimate  child, but have heard we have  to do everything through the  adoption agency. Can we do  this ourselves? What has to be  done? We don't have much  money.  A. It is not necessary to do  everything through the agency.  The child welfare authorities  will put a little pressure on  you to let them make a placement ��� that is choose a child  for you. They have to investigate the home conditions and  make a recommendation about  adoption to the superintendent  of child welfare. I think you  will find they will be quite fair,  and even though you do not  accept their procedures they  Will make an unprejudiced report on the home conditions.  A court order must be ob-"  tained. This is a legal proceeding and you should see your  lawyer. Various documents  must be prepared including the  consent of the mother and her  affidavit and an affidavit of a  witness   to   her   consent.  Don't make the mistake of  taking the child into your home  till you have the, consent of  the mother. She may change  her mind and there will be a  lot of heartache for you if she  obtains her baby back. There  is a procedure for dispensing  with the mother's consent, but  this is possible only in very  rare cases.  There is a six months waiting period during which a social worker will call several  times to investigate home conditions. If the superintendent,  acting on the advice of the  social worker, submits a favorable report to the court, the  adoption order is usually granted as a matter of course. If a  favorable report is not submitted, a judge will hear the matter in full and listen to the  evidence of all parties and the  judge  has   the  final   say.  Don't worry about your small  income.

In. outlining the Yad-  v a n t a g e s ' of incorporation:  speakers brought out the following points: Y  The mill rate under provincial ,iaw cannot exceed 20  mills. Property will be asses-  7sed at 75 percent to total value,  while the provincial government now assess- the property  at 100 percent of total value.  Under provincial law the  council cannot spend or borrow more riioriey in one year  than it can raise in the'fiscal  year. Before money may be  spent on any project a bylaw  must first be passed by the  voters and then the project approved by the provincial government.  These laws act as a brake  and prevent the council from  going hog wild and into debt  such as South and North Vancouver and Burnaby have experienced. Under village incorporation (the only practical  type with Sechelt population)  the schools, administration of  justice and main highways remain the responsibility of the  government. 7  Those opposed to incorporation brought forth the argument that Sechelt's population  was two small and scattered,  and despite all advantages it  is neither practicable nor- feasible   at   the  present   time.  Speaking on the rapid growth  of Sechelt, Mr. Parker said  there is a possibility of Sechelt  becoming a shack town and  the only way to prevent this  was to incorporate. At the  present time there is nothing  to prevent the construction of  mere shacks or worse beside  attractive houses in the midst  of the residential area. Besides  detracting from the beauty ..of  the district such buildings will  devaluate   adjacent   properties.

HEAVY ON  PETROLEUM  Canadians use more petroleum products per person than  anyone else in the free  world, according to the latest  edition of Imperial Oil's Facts  and Figures About Oil in Canada. The nation's estimated oil  product consumption for 1965  averaged 750 gallons per person. That's nine gallons more  per person than in the United  States. Canada as a whole consumed more than 40 million  gallons per day.  DECEPTIVE PACKAGING  At a recent women's club  meeting in Toronto at which  90 females of various ages  were present, a survey was  conducted which resulted in the  following information, reported  in Canadian Packaging: 12%  wore false eyelashes; 28%  plucked their eyebrows and 28%  wore wigs or hairpieces; 30%  wore mascara; 59% wore pad-  der brassieres; 77% wore face  powder or rouge; 84% wore  girdles; 100% wore lipstick.  The subject for discussion at  the meeting was: "Deceptive  Packaging."  only solution is to incorporate  and pass a bylaw preventing  such  construction  in Sechelt.  In answer to a question Mr.  Archer stated that were Sechelt incorporated, it would  ; not necessarily accept the responsibility of the water works,  and if it did it would be, ill-  advised in his opinion, to carry  out the proposed plan to extend water services to West Sechelt because of the high cost  involved.  In another story on the same  meeting Aries, a writer covering hews in Sechelt, wrote that  on a show of hands it seemed  that Selma Park and Wilson  Creek were definitely not interested. Sechelt and West Sechelt favored further investigation.:  Most of the dissenters were  afraid of excessive taxation,  particularly school taxes, but  this would not be affected  by incorporation as this is a  provincial government field entirely apart from any municipal action.  A letter from Union Steamships which was read indicated that  the company was cer  tain incorporation would come  sooner or later and they were  laying plans on that supposition. They intimated that the  company would be willing to  sell the water system to the  village if incorporation took  place.  That ends the retelling of the  two stories back in 1948. Further check on Coast News files  failed to turn up any action  for the remainder of the year  that would be concerned with  incorporation. What did show  up was .the amalgamation of  the Sechelt Improvement association with the Sechelt Board  of Trade with no mention of  any effort towards incorporation.

The minutes of the regular  meeting Feb. 6, when Councillor  Wally Peterson asked for the  resignation of Secretary-treasurer Peter Wilson of the school-  board, are recorded as follows:  There was discussion in reference to the meetings with the  school board and the 1968 budget received at the Jan. 31  meeting. Councillor Peterson expressed his views from a prepared statement to the general >  effect that questions asked on  the over-scale number of teachers had not been satisfactorily  explained, the necessity for the  number of non-teaching staff  and the high salary scale was  open to question and that some  of the expenditures on school  grounds had been wasted.  Councillor Peterson felt that  the villages should not condone  extravagances. He felt the budget should not be accepted until the secretarytreasurer resigned, feeling he was responsi-  budget  ble for the undue expenses. He  felt so much of the budget was  unnecessary and there would be  little tax funds left for the villages to work with.  Councillor Crosby agreed the  issue was frustrating but questioned the reference to the secretary-treasurer to resign as the  school board was the responsible  body. Chairman Feeney agrieed  ; feeling that this was / pretty  strong. He felt that the school  situation was unsatisfactory and  that.*expend_tures shpuld be subjected to a priority of real need.  He noted that the elected school  representatives had final responsibility. It appeared there were  relatively few graduates for the  large expenditure involved.  Councillors Goddard and Dixon agreed with the views expressed by Chairman Feeney arid  Councillor Crosby.- The possible cost of arbitration was discussed. The position and responsibilities of.; the secretary-  treasurer and the school board  were  outlined by  the  clerk.  It was decided to hold the  matter over for further discussion in conjunction with the Village of Sechelt,-noting that the  Public Schools Act required acceptance or a demand for arbitration by Feb. 20, 1869.  The meeting adjourned on the  motion  of Councillor Peterson.  Events that followed this  meeting were that Sechelt council met in regular meeting the  next night and decided to.hold  it over until the fnext council  meeting. However' 'aY specisil  meeting was called Feb. 14 at  which the joint motion was passed. Gibsons council held its spe-  cial meeting Thursday, Feb. 15  passing the same motion.

World Day  of Prayer  ,: Bear one another burdens is  the 1968 World Day of Prayer  theme and in Gibsons, the host  church this year is the.Calvary  Baptist on Park Road. The service will be at 2 p.n. Friday,  March 1. The public is cordially invited. V  ��� The planning committee, representatives from 7 St. Bartholomews Anglican, Calvary Baptist, Pentecostal and Gibsons  United churches met at the  home of Mrs. J. H. Kelly,  . where program arrangements  were  finalized.  This year, the order of service has been written by one  of the most energetic, much  travelled and greatly loved  churehwoman-of Ceylon, Ratine  Selvaratnam.  By her nature, she was born  a dynamic:;leader, to influence  others by the warmth of her  personality, to face difficulties  and to overcome them.  As a young girl, she used  to accompany her father to the  Leper Asylum .when he went  to take services fbrr them. Her  extra curricular activities were  mainly with the children of the .  Orthopaedic  hospital.  During World War II she and  her family were evacuated,from  Malaysia to Ceylon where  they eventually settled and  Rathie met and married the_-  Rev. John Selvaratnam, presently warden of St. Thomas  College.'  Her name, is a household  word among- those who know  her as friend and fellowrwork-  er. Her wonderful, personality,  depth of commitment, her persuasive powers and charitableness, have the power to inspire others,. and the impression always given y when she  enters a room is as if the sun  suddenly shone.  A favorite text of hers is  Launch out into the Deep,  which she certainly has done  and continues to do, while the  faint-hearted stand on the brink  shivering, doubting and debating.  Elect officers  for Thrift Shop  Mrs. Muriel Tibb gave a detailed and interesting report on  the progress of the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliaries' Thrift  Shop, Sechelt, at the regular*  meeting of the Roberts Creek  Auxiliary Monday evening.  Several gifts have been made  to the shop for the improved efficiency of the business and the  benefit of customers and per- I  sonnel: The' 1967 proceeds from  the project have been most  worthwhile.  President Mrs. Stan Rowland  advised the members of the Regional tea on April 24 at Sechelt Indian School hall, and  asked that those who expect to  attend register at the next meeting, March 11. There are approximately 150 members in the  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliaries.  Mrs. A. E. Mcllwaine responded to a request for an alternative member on the co-ordinating council. Requests for catering service from two sources  were discussed.  Mrs. C. Beeman drew the evening's prize, Valentine cake tins  and ^ will be her pleasure to  provide next month's prize. Mrs.  R; McSavaney provided the refreshments which she served at  the close of the meeting. Seventeen men-bears and guests  were present.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  Coast News, Feb. 22, 1068.       3*  SYDNEY JAMES BOYTE  Syd Boyte, retired printer who  installed linotypes in the old  Coast News office several years  ago, died in his 71st year. He  leaves his wife Gertrude, two  sons, John of Victoria and Bill  of Prince Rupert and two daughters, Mrs. Audrey Isaacs and  Mrs. Doris Stalman, both of  North Vancouver. There are  also 12 grandchildren and two  sisters.  The Boytes came to Roberts  Creek about 17 years ago and  bought the Taylor place ,on Elphinstone Road. When Mr.  Boyte's health began to fail  four years ago they moved into  the city. Mr. Boyte served in  WW 1 with the Seaforth Highlanders and in WW 2 in the  RCA.  Each  year,   more  and  more  Canadians may be eating their  way to premature heart attacks, the B.C. Heart Foundation warns, changes in our eating habits are in, order for all  of us, young and old, sick and  well. This warning was sounded' on the basis of growing  scientific evidence indicating  that dietary control may be a  key factor in turning the> tide  of increasing mortality from  coronary artery disease and  heart  attacks.    .  The underlying process resulting in heart attack is  atherosclerosis: a build-up of  fatty deposits along the, inner  walls of the coronary. arteries  feeding the heart muscle with  vital blood. This process, starting silently early in life, can  narrow these vessels to the  danger point: the point at  which a blood clot can plug  up a main branch of the network and deal a damaging or  even death blow to the heart.  What has this to do with  what we eat?  The diets consumed by most  Canadians are not only excessive in calories,, but also high'  in total fat, saturated fat and  cholesterol ��� the very food  components leading to high  levels of cholesterol and other  fats in the blood. Furthermore,  several studies have -shown  that high blood cholesterol  levels in middle-aged Canadian  men can be brought down sign-  nificantly by carefully controlled diet programs. And, researchers feel, there is good  reason to believe that lowering these levels will also lower the incidence of' premature  coronary artery disease.  The prudent diet, providing  2,700 calories a day, allocates  only 30-33% of the total calories  to fats, (the average diet is  est'mated to contain 40-45%  fat calories). Moreover, in the  prudent diet, a significantly  larger proportion of these fats  comes from polyunsaturates -���  vegetable oils, fish and poultry  ���rather than the - saturated  fats that ordinarily predominate  in the diet.  7 In suggesting that Canadians  modify their eating patterns  along the lines of the prudent  diet, the B.C. Heart Foundation underlines the need to  make sound food habits "a  family affair." It advises, the  public to: Eat less saturated  fat (usually of animal origin);  Increase the consumption of unsaturated   vegetable   ollls   aind  , other poly-unsaturated fats,  substituting them for animal  fats wherever possible; Eat  less   food   rich   in   cholesterol  ��� and if overweight, reduce.

'.;���'���  The report of the auditors and  directors was presented by Mr.  "Holland and R. J. Maxwell,  president and secretary with  ^ Frank Hay, store manager assisting. The financial report  showed a better year and unlike last year when no dividend  was declared it was decided  that there would be a three  percent dividend on purchases  and three percent on dividends.  During the discussion period  there were questions regarding  the expansion of the co-operative into other lines. While the  idea was not turned down Mr.  Holland, in the chair advised  caution as in some cases follow ups and maintenance of  such sales could prove embarrassing.  Music exams  At the recent winter exams  held by the Toronto Conservatory of Music, pianoforte pupils of Irene Sykes, L.R.S.M.,  were successful.

In vocal classes the following  pupils of Gilbert Sykes were  successful:  Grade 1 singing, Colleen Husby; Grade II singing, Nona  Veale; Grade II singing, Douglas Taylor, who passed with  honors.  Of this singer the examiner  made encouraging remarks,  calling him a musical young  man, with good vocal texture,  excellent technique and perfect  marks in ear tests.  In commenting on these remarks, Mr. Sykes added that a  strong parental interest is of  considerable help and encouragement..

COLLEGE  COMMITTEE  A citizen committee to circulate information about the  proposed Community College  has been formed under the  chairmanship of Mr. E. C.  Sherman, resident manager,  Howe Sound Pulp Division,  Canadian Forest Products, Port  Mellon.  JOINT CHURCH SERVICE  The monthly joint Sunday service between Anglican and United Church congregations will  take place next Sunday evening  starting at 7:30 p.m. in St. Bartholomew's Anglican church at  the corner of North Road and  the highway. Rev. H. Kelly, and  Rev. W. M. Cameron will take  part in the service. CONSTRUCTION is proceeding  rapidly on the improved Lang-  ' dale terminal, as, shown by this  view looking from the highway  towards the water, over the  new area of the parking lot.  The area has been widened to  provide for two unloading lanes  and four lanes for traffic proceeding to the ferries, two of  which will be holding lanes. Between in and outbound lanes  there will be parking space for  150 cars.  College will  be discussed  The school board's educational meeting this month will be  devoted to a discussion of the  Community College, particularly as it affects the students, voters ana taxpayers of this school  district.  Trustees are anxious to see  that all concerned get full information about the college and  the reasons why this school district should participate. Because  of the fact permission for the  plebiscite has only just been  given by the department of education and because trustees and  educators want to see the college open this September in existing school facilities, the time  available for publicity is very  short. The plebseite date is  Thursday, March 7, only two  weeks away.  Mr. Leslie Brooks, adult education director for the North  and West Vancouver school districts who has acted as secretary of the Community College  Co-ordinating committee since  its inception several years ago,  will speak on the Community  College with particular reference to the need for this school  district to participate, what it  will cost taxpayers, why another institution of higher learning is necessary, what the curriculum might be, and so on.  Mr. Brooks' talk will be followed by a question and answer period during which the  audience will be free to direct  any questions to a panel of local people. On the panel will be  a trustee, the district supen-  intendent of schools, the principal of Elphinstone Secondary  School, a student, a teacher, a  community leader and the secretary-treasurer.  Trustees hope that all parents,  voters, teachers and students  will attend the meeting, which  will be held on Monday, Feb. 26  in the library at Elphinstone  Secondary school, Gibsons,v  starting at 7:30 p.m.  HATHAWAY  APPOINTED  Charles W.

OAPO resolutions  discussed at Sechelt  sleeve  Roll up your  to save JL  a life... T_H  BEA^LOOD DONOR  The meeting of the Sechelt  branch of the OAPO last Thursday was well attended with Mr.  Harry Hill presiding. There was  a discussion of the resolutions  submitted by the Federated Legislative Council of the Elder  Citizens' Association of B.C. in  a brief to the provincial government. These resolutions concerned matters of vital interest  such as ambulance service,  continuing care hospitals, school  taxes and the cost of drugs.  Reporting for the welfare  committee, Mr. Percy Grice advised that during the past month  he and Mrs. Grice had made 12  visits to the hospital and had  visited 43 patients. Members in  hospital at the present time are  Mrs. Mary Watson, Mrs. Hazel  Evans, Mrs. Clark and Oliver  Geer.  All members of the bnanch  are asked to advise Mr. or Mrs.  Grice of the names of any mem  bers in hospital. Please make a  note of their phone number as  it is not yet in the book ��� 885-  2360.  Mr. Louis Hansen has asked  for helpers to work on a scheme  being launched by the Sunshine  Coasit Lions Club to raise money  for the Senior' Citizens' homes.  He explained the working of the  Community Birthday Calendar  project, in which any family ordering a calendar can have the  birthdays of each member of  their family printed on the calendar. On these special days  there will be-privileges offered  by the local stores and tradesmen to those with birthdays  whose names are printed thereon. Mr. Hansen and his group  of workers will be happy to take  orders for the calendars, which  will be available July 1 and will  cover a year from July 1968 to  June 1969.  In the absence of Mrs. Evans, who was in hospital, the  entertainment program was arranged by Mrs. Dorothy Stock-  well. Mrs. Guy Clear gave a recitation Our Centennial Year,  and there followed community  singing led by Mr. T. W. Mars-  tin who was accompanied by  Mrs. Stockwell on her auto-  harp.

One thing which will be done  is the finding of a name for  the reserve park for which a  prize will be offered. It was  also decided that a speed limit  of 20 mph will be set for roads  through the reserve and signs  will be erected. It was also decided if possible that street  numbers will be placed on  homes within the reserve.  New housing will be considered and a program will be  drawn up to cover the remainder of this year. The question of attending school board  meetings was discussed and it  was suggested that the women  of the band should take a  greater interest in school problems and other community affairs.

COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886-2622  Coast News, Feb. 22, 1968.       5  Davis fo speak  Encouraged by the interest  in community resources, shown  recently by various groups the  Arts council has asked Mr.  Jack Davis, MP, to focus our  attention upon our community  and;human resources;  Mr. Davis will speak on how  to make our community a better place in which to live on  March 23 at Elphinstone school.  Since its inception two years  ago the Sunshine Coast Arts  council has been struggling to  keep intact its vision of. the  Sunshine Coast as an integral  unit and to grow out of the  old parochial nooks and crannies. To this end directors have  been chosen or incorporated to  represent different areas and,  together and in committees the  idea of community betterment  has been continually discussed  and fostered.  One of the difficulties encountered by the Arts council,  apart from the geography of  the area, has been to overcome its public image created  automatically in most people  by the use of the word art.  Daily living is the art in which  we are all involved, and success is influenced in many ways  by the community in;, which we  live.. This will be the first of a  series of events planned by the  Arts council in a community  betterment program which  could lead up to a conference  on community resources.  A GROUP OF 22 Gibsons Cubs recently made a tour of the Coast  News printing plant, under the leadership of Mrs. Doreen Matthews  and Mrs. Jill Hill:,They were shown the workings of the Linotype  by Norman Geoghegan, and after having seen the shop, they went  away with a better understanding of what goes into making their  local newspaper.  Pepper problem answered  To housewives who wonder  why it is hard to keep the pepper shakers clean and free  flowing, Canadian Hotel &  Restaurant responds that the  answer lies in changing tastes  in that most popular of spices,  black pepper.  Pepper users have found that  coarse grinding means more  aroma and flavor than the fine  grinding that used to be favored. This means that the holes  in the caps of most pepper shak  er are smaller than the grind,  or mesh size, of the pepper.  A recent trade survey disclosed nowadays manufacturers of both salt and pepper use  exactly the same mesh size for  the product they sell to hotels,  restaurants, hospitals and institutions, which are simplifying  their operations by % making  sure that the holes in both salt  and pepper shaker caps are the  same size.

If the plebiscite for approval  of establishing a community college on the North Shore is passed March 7, it will be the first  time a college has been set up  in existing facilities in British  Columbia  Because the four school districts, North and West Vancouver, Sechelt and Howe Sound,  decided to use West Vancouver  Secondary School rather than  build a college, costs will be low  for operation.  There will be no money bylaw  only a plebiscite asking if voters approve the establishment  of a college to serve the four  districts. If this passes, classes  would start in September.  Peter Jones, chairman ot tne  interim college committee said  that costs to North and West  Vancouver would run about ��/���  per year for a family wife a  as  an  individual.  Community service ��� This  program would see the college  become the focal point of the  educational and cultural life of  the region.  Jones said with universities  raising their entrance standards  more and more talented youngsters were denied equal rights  to post high school education.  These are the mechanics of  the plebiscite. In each district  where the plebiscite is passed  by the electors the school board  may then participate in the formation of a community college  council, which is the governing  board    of    the    college,    and  through the council will assist  in planning the college itself.  Its students will have a prior  right to attend the college. In  any district where the plebiscite  is defeated, the school board  may take no further part in the  college, and its students have  no claims to attend unless there  is excess space. They.would also  pay a higher fee.  Since the act at present does  not provide for a plebiscite to  be offered more than once in a  school district, Jones said it  was important that the March  7 vote be passed. There are 81  students in grade 12 in the Sechelt school district.

For non-academic, general interest courses for adults, there  would be no prerequisite for admission.  The curriculum would provide  the following:  Academic ��� The first year  academic would replace the  present grade 13 in high school  and add another year. These  are transfer programs and students graduating from either  first or second year will be accepted at universities.

Earlier in the meeting Len  Wray, and Mrs. Bernice Chamberlin, fair board representatives, appealed to the board  to give them some relief from  the $80 per day rent on the  use of the Elementary school  activity hall and school  grounds.  It was their contention that  such a fee would put them in  the red as last year the fail .  board finished up with a slight  surplus only. As a result the  school board decided to continue its present arrangement  with the fair board.  Mr. Wray pointed out that  the old school hall, turned over  to the school board about five  years ago was maintained for  community use but there is apparently nothing;on record with  the school board to say such  was the case.  Other rental problems were  discussed including $8 per hour  policy rates for Gibsons Rod  and Gun club and the rejection of the Five Pin Bowling  club application for a May 11  annual bowling banquet in Elphinstone gym for an estimated  200 people, because liquor was  to be served. Board policy is  against gambling and drinking  on school property.  When the official notice of  the March 7 plebiscite came  up, Trustee Leo Johnson said  he doubted whether it would  pass as it is too close to the  school budget presentation and  there is only three weeks in  which the public can make up  its mind. If the board had tried  to push a referendum in the  space of three weeks it would  not pass, he added. Joan B.  Rigby returning officer for the  last school trustee elections  was named returning officer for  the plebiscite.  Trustee Leo Johnson reported that he expected to have an  Indian band representative  available as an observer on  school board affairs probably  for the next meeting. The Vancouver Underwood, McKinley,  Cameron firm of architects was  appointed for planning purposes  on referendum No. 9, preparation of which is under way.  Robert Rutter, maintenance  man reporting on school conditions suggested ipedesitraan  guide lines at the Elementary  school in Gibsons should be repainted and added that a warning amber blinker light should  be installed at the highway intersection.  Teacher recruitment takes  place March 11 and 12 in Victoria and at UBC in Vancouver. Supt. Gordon Johnson will  take part along with Elementary grades supervisor Mrs.  Grace Wiren and Trustees Mrs.  Labonte and Kitson. The budget review early in March will  take place in Vancouver with  education department officials  in which members of the board  will  have their say.  Fire officials investigating  the report of the need for another exit from Elphinstone library concluded that the present number of exits was quite  adequate.  An application for the opening of a private nursery school  for three year olds and up  from 9 to 12 daily was rejected. Supt. Johnson said he could  not approve it.  Board members were informed that the cost of arbitrating  teacher salaries recently cost  $960, involving 32 hours which  included travel time.  John Dunlop of Egmont wrote  the board that his offer to  match a ten foot donation of  land from the board in order  to provide an access road at  Egmont was withdrawn as the  property was being sold.

Mrs. Elsie Willis Port Mellon,  the retiring president, thanked  all auxiliary members for their  efforts to make the Thrift Shop  a financial success.  In the fall of 1966, the Port  Mellon Hospital Auxiliary  brought the idea of a Thrift  Shop to the co-ordinating council. The task of looking into the  pros and cons of such a venture  fell to Port Mellon. In January  1967 a committee was formed  consisting . of two representatives from each auxiliary to  manage the Thrift Shop, which  opened for business on Jan. 28.  Arrangements were made between the hospital board and  the committee for the use of the  Hospital Cottage. From its inception this venture has been a  great financial success due to  the generous donations from the  public and to the untiring efforts of the six auxiliaries who  staff the shop.  Explorers hit  some deep snow  Two local youths spent the  weekend exploring the mountains which rise just beyond  our own backyards. Armed with  provisions and sleeping bags  they set off on Saturday morning and planned to return on  Tuesday. As the day progressed  the rate of speed lessened and  so did the provisions.  According to the boys the hills  are perpendicular with hidden  snowdrifts ranging up to 30 feet  through which they caught  glimpses of a tiny Sechelt far  below. When night overtook  them they found it too cold to  sleep and, instead, took advantage of bright, moonlight and a  starry sky to slide down the  glistening slopes on improvised  sleighs.  In the distance Vancouver lay  before them in all her splendor,  her lights illuminating the heavens. With morning came the  pangs of hunger as all the food  had been consumed the previous evening and the boys returned home. Fresh cougar  prints in great numbers greatly  assisted the run down the mountain.  Laing's thanks  Thank you very much for the  excellent arrangements that  you made for my recent trip  to Sechelt, writes Hon. Arthur  Laing, federal minister of Indian Affairs to Clarence Joe of  Sechelt Indian band.  The letter from Mr. Laing  stated that he was very impressed with the young chief  and council and the attitude  with which they were pers'i'ng  their task. Mr. Laing was also  impressed by the excellent relationship that the band had  with the non-Indian neighbors  at Sechelt.  Mr. Laing stated officials are  studying the brief presented to  him at the conference in Sechelt recently and he will write  later  on   the  points  raised.  More telephones  B.C.

Sechelt News  (By MARIE FIRTH)  Mrs. Julian Julian returned  to her home in Santa Clara, California, last week, after spending 12 days visiting her brother  Dr. A. Swan and his family in  West Sechelt.  Three young nurses from St.  Mary's Hospital are migrating  to warmer climes for an indefinite stay. Leaving for Hawaii  are Miss Myrna Burtnick, Miss  Faye Shindell ancTMiss Joanne  Coleman. The three girls graduated from the 1967 class at  Royal Columbian Hospital and  have been stationed at Sechelt  since then.  Another couple that has just  returned from basking in the  sun is Mr. and Mrs. Dave Hayward. Together with Mr. and  Mrs. Harry Mould of Burnaby,  the Haywards have been holidaying in Desert Hot Springs  and surrounding area for the  past month.  councils from neighboring reserves together with members  of the band and close friends  of the family, stood watch  through  the. long  night  hours.  At the conclusion of the service at the church, the choir  and congregation joined in the  singing of Mrs. Paul's favorite  hymn Abide with Me. A most  impressive and moving sight  as the children of the Sechelt  Residential School and the entire congregation filed slowly  past the draped casket, flanked with candles, to pay their  last respects to Hopalitch last  of the tribal basket weavers  and grand Old lady of the Sechelt  Band.  The casket was borne by six  pallbearers, Gene Silvey, Hubert Joe, Chris- Julian, P. Hig-  gens, Arthur Jeffries and Joe  Jeffries. They led the procession on foot to the Reservation  cemetery just beyond the  church and close to the sea.  Final rites were performed at  the graveside and there a moving tribute was paid to his  grandmother by Chief Billy  Mitchell. As a final touch, the  young girls of the band and  Sechelt village, placed the  many floral tributes around the  grave close to that of her parents, William and Tghagaute  Jeffries.  ; Mrs. Paul, 84, who passed  away last week in Vancouver  General" Hospital after a long  illness, was predeceased by her  husband Dan Paul three years  ago. She is survived by two  sons, Reg. and Henry and a  daughter, Mrs. Sarah Silvey  all of Sechelt and by nephews,  nieces, grandchildren and great  grandchildren numbering well  over 50.  Born Mary Ellen Jeffries,  July 1, 1885, at Eburne, now  Marpole, district of Vancouver,  Mrs. Paul spent her earlier  days at Piper's Lagoon, Departure Bay near Nanaimo.  She was the last surviving  member of the five Jeffries sisters. Her funeral so widely attended by her people and many  friends /along the Sunshine  Coast was a fitting tribute to  the veneration and love of all  with whom she came in contact  during her long and useful life.  Get go-ahead  The go ahead for parks and  recreation to be included in  Letters Patent of Regional districts has been allowed by the  department of municipal affairs, the district recreation office in Sechelt reveals.  Mr. J. Pan ton, director of the  community programs branch  of the, department of education  and Mr. D. McCooey regional  consultant have announced  they will be in the district for  a meeting on Feb. 28 in the Regional District office at 8 p.m.  This office is at Davis Bay.  Main purpose of the meeting  is to explore the possibility of  extending the Letters Patent of  the Regional District board to  include parks and recreation.  PANCAKE SUPPER  Hi-C members will sold a pancake supper Tuesday, Feb. 27  starting at 6 p.m. in the United  Church Hall.

(Continued from page 1)  ed.  Council  turned  the matter  over  to  Fred  Holland  of  the  maintenance department for a  check.  The puzzle over $42 sent by  the provincial recreation commission was solved by a second  letter from the commission  which stated the money should  be turned over to the area recreation committee at Seohelt.  The lane in rear of Marine  Drive between Jack's Lane and  Beach Avenue was checked following a letter from Mrs. H.  Lee. It was reported the lane  needs   levelling   off   but   that  ''Something should be done about  widening it." An added: suggestion urged that people with fences along that lane should see  that they are put into proper  fence shape.  A letter -,��� from the Sunshine  Coast' Tourist association will  be turned over to the Chamber  of Commerce for consideration.
