 Published at Gibsons, B.C.  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Volume 21  Number 10,  March 7,  1968.  10c per copy  2 letters  on college  seite  Editor: It has been suggested  apparently because of the reported remarks of two trustees,  that all the trustees of this  school district might not be  wholly and unanimously behind  the Community College.  The two trustees, Mr. Leo  Johnson and Mr. Norman  Hough, were quoted as saying  that the campaign for the college would not succeed. The inference was that they did not  support the college.  Mr. Johnson and Mr. Hough  have since stated emphatically  that they fully endorse the col-  ". lege campaign and that their remarks were only intended to  convey their fear that the unavoidably brief period during  which the campaign could be  held, would make it difficult to  convey to the voters all the information about the college  which they should have in order to vote intelligently on the  issue on March 7.  In order to clarify the matter  once and for all, a motion was  passed at a meeting held on  Feb. 29, at which all seven trustees were present and voted.  The motion was proposed by  Mr. Malcolm and seconded by  Mr. Leo Johnson and reads as  follows:  "Be it resolved that we, the  seven trustees forming the  Board of School Trustees of  School District No. 46 (Sechelt)  reaffirm our unanimous support  of; the Community College, both  as a board and as individual  ��� trustees..";... YY...Y ������'������������..*'.''..  The motion was approved unanimously.  ���Don Douglas, chairman;  Norman Hough, Leo Johnson,  Sheila Kitson, Agnes Labonte,  William Malcolm, Clifford  Thorold, trustees.  menace  Stirs council  Too many unlicensed dogs are  roaming Gibsons streets menacing citizens, children and  small dogs which they are attacking and killing. This was a  conclusion reached at Tuesday  night's meeting of Gibsons mutt'cipal council.  . What, will be done about it?  An effort will be made to see  what the SPCA can do and whether it is advisable to advertise  for a short-term pound keeper  and thus get the menace under  control.1  The problem came up in a  letter  from  Mrs.  M.

The school board  has used this hoax long enough  to justify their excessive spending.   Y  This misleading statistic is  arrived at by dividing the total  assessed value of the school district (by the number of pupils  attending school. The greater  the number of pensioners and  retired people, the smaller the  number of children, therefore  the richer the district, or so say  our school board.  At the meeting held at Sechelt  on Tuesday it was stated that  the Sechelt school district was  three times as rich as the West  Vancouver school district. The  panel later did not and could  not deny that foy using this same  formula it was costing three  times as much to educate a  student in the Sechelt district  as it was costing to educate a  student in the West Vancouver  school district.  May I point out to you that  the same will apply to the cost  of   the   proposed   college,   provided the same percentage of  students     attend    from     each  school district. Now let us suppose that due to closer proximity five times as many students,  percentagewise, from West Van  attend   than  from   the   Sechelt  school district. We will then be  paying 15 times  as  much per  student as West Vancouver. BE  WISE, VOTE NO.  ���L. A. Fraser.  6 ft.

Male members of those families  were the ones who trapped the  monster.  Apparently the whale likes  music. It has been attracted by  girls playing their flutes and  has surfaced to enjoy the proceeding^.  It appears from stories going  the rounds at Pender Harbour  that on the afternoon the whales  were sighted in the area, it was  also the day for the celebration  of the wedding anniversary of  one member of th__ crew that  trapped the whale. However the  lure of the chase was so strong  the wedding anniversary was  forgotten, for the time being. It  has been celebrated since. Coast News, March 7, 1968.  Serving the Mt.

A good many people are finding it difficult to make up their  minds about what to do with their vote on the proposed regional  college. There are also a good many apathetic people who know  what they intend to do but will refrain from voting.  Between doubtful voters and those who will refrain from voting lies a group of positive people who have been hard at work  convincing others that the area requires the college. It will be  through the efforts of this group that a positive vote can be  realized.  There is an interest in the college because close to 200 persons attended meetings in Gibsons and Sechelt to hear what it  was all about. A few, very lew were definite in their opposition  but the majority outside of the questioners were generally seeking information.  However when the vote is taken on Thursday there will be  ���a definite answer. In casting one's vote it should be remembered  thai while there are over-crowded institutions with programs that  go beyond the secondary school level, there is definitely room  for a college that will come between present secondary education and that of higher learning in universities, vocational and  technical schools.  Most people are in favor of a regional college on the Nortih  Shore. There is no argument about that. But why, some people  ask, should our school district become embroiled in it? The answer is not too difficult if one thinks logically. The North Shore  Regional College Study by Tantalus Research Limited, the basis  for the setting up of this college, presents a condition which applies to the North Shore area and in a lesser degree to our school  district.  Problems that have been found difficult to overcome on the  North Shore apply to students in this school district. There should  be institutions of learning that fall between the top grade of  secondary schooling and universities, a type of education that  would prepare students for the more serious business of university education.  If university administrators were free to speak on the subject they would most likely claim that regional colleges should  have been established years ago in order that the load of university dropouts could be handled at a lower level instead of cramming universities with people who may drop-out after a couple  of years.  On this basis there is something to be said in favor of regional  eolleges. In the long run it will be cheaper to have smaller universities with better chances of offering education to those who  really want it and use regional colleges as stepping stones towards university education.  The phasing in of regional colleges has advantages. It allows  the public an opportunity to see what a regional college can  offer before that issue becomes one which requires considerable  sums of money for buildings, campuses and staff. Considerable  misunderstanding can be cleared away* when students become  involved and there is what had been described as an existing  college population.  On this basis the Coast News would prefer to see an affirmative vote in this area. There are some people who think of their  taxation dollars seriously but they should also give the same  serious thought to the educational facilities for the present and  coming generations. The biological urge rarely gives consideration to the future. Nevertheless the production of that urge deserves consideration.  Some $701,355 was spent in the consumption of liquor beverages on the Sunshine Coast in the fiscal year ending March 31,  1967. The price of one bottle of hard liquor will more than pay  the bill when it comes time to pay taxes.  Point of law  On the problem of prescription drugs, for the elderly Hon.  Mrs. Isabel Dawson in her  legislature address on Feb. 23  said all social welfare cases  are given a health service card.  There are approximately 22,-  . 000 elderly citizens over 67  years of age, and 4,974 between  the ages of 65. to 67, a total of  almost. 27,000 who now hold  health service  cards.  These cards also include  medical, dental, and optical  services without charge. This  service also includes children  in care, unemployable people  and old age supplementary assistance. This card entitles the  party to all services. They have  the right of choice of their doctor who may also send them to  a specialist if this is required.  The doctor gives them a prescription and the party take  the prescription to a drug store  themselves, and the bill is picked up by the government, when  such is sent in by drug store  for payment.  The new benefit list of drugs  was compiled by an independent  group of doctors and on the  basis of using drugs of common names rather than brand  names. This use of common  name drugs avoided purchasing name brand drugs with a  savings  in  cost.  In the area of elderly citizens we opened our new Powell  River 40 unit Olive DeVaud  Boarding Home, the grant from  this government being $94,500.  We now have a very fine complex started in Powell River.  In 1958, we built our first self-  contained non-profit units, and  since then, . have costructed  more of them.  The Sushine Coast Senior  Citizens Housing society at Sechelt is now hard at work planning for low-cost, non-profit,  self-contained housing unit, and  the Gibsons Legion is working  on their plans for the same  type of project in their area.  Both of these, no doubt, will be  coming up for approval within  the next few months.  One of the needs of the elderly citizens is lower cost ambu-   \  lance service.  However, I know the problem  is receiving    active    consideration by this government. Three  Regional   Districts   have   them  in   their   letters   patent   and   I  suggest    that    other    districts  might do well to look into this  need  and  explore  this  method  of providing ambulance service.  It  has   been   my  belief  that  there is  a  need for some  sort  of   personal counsellor   service  for the elderly. Someone, if possible, from their own ranks who  could  attend   a   seminar  of   a  few days,   and be  given information   that he   or   she   could  take back to his or her area.  Many of the questions the elderly   ask  could  be  answered  by  someone from their own group  or groups, if  they  had sufficient knowledge and information,  hope will be in the near future,  This program will go forward  this   year   and   in   the   welfare  estimates    there    is    provision  for a consultant and I am also  pleased  the  minister   of  social  welfare is at present in search  of such a person. To carry this  counsellor service through, an  elderly citizens seminar will be  held next fall, most likely in  October. It is our intention to  have about 25 or 30 of these  counsellors to start with - and  as the setup proves it worth, to  increase the number to possibly 50. It is something quite  new and I am all. for starting  it in a small way and building  it up as it proves itself and  I feel sure this will prove to  be the case.  Mrs. Dawson said government is recommending an urban bus pass program to meet  the needs of certain low. income groups of senior citizens  in urban areas. The costs to  Hydro will be met from the  $1,000,000 urban transportation  assistance provided in the 1968-  69 budget. The passes are to  be issued by the division of  the aged on behalf of Hydro.  They are to be of durable construction and contain a photograph   of the holder.  The pass shall be available  on application to all senior citizens who are in receipt of supplementary allowance at a  charge of $5 for a six-month  period, and applications may  be made after March 31. The  pass shall be good for urban  transportation six days a week  from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; from  7 p.m. to close of service, and  all day Sunday.  During the past few months  considerable work has been  done on secondary or side  roads. Re-construction and  black-topping has been done on  a number of them and some  $618,000 has been budgeted for  Mackenzie for the next fiscal  year.  Field  work  on   the proposed  Gibsons by-pass,    with    design  work to be completed later in  the  year,   is   progressing   well.  It will be a boon totraffic, es-  pecialy   driving    from    Powell  River to the Langdale Terminal  In looking into the future one  can easily foresee a seaway of  ferries, through its length, and  I   shall   continue   to  press  for  these, for this is our main mode  of travel. We are indeed pleased  to   see  that  much activity  and   construction   of  terminals  on our ferry links, including the  Horseshoe* Bay Terminal, Langdale  and Earle's  Cove,  where  acquisition  of     our     Sunshine  Coast Queen, which will go into  service     towards     the  end of  March   or   early   April,   means  a total expenditure of over 5^4  million dollars.  The Powell River-Comox ferry  has proved popular not only for  tourists, but for the local residents; the people in the Powell  River area are looking forward to the day, which they  when a more adequate ferry  terminal will be constructed  and a larger ferry carry the  ever-increasing traffic to Vancouver Island.  Powell River is really going  places. Last July, number ten  paper machine, a part of a  $105,000,000 construction went  into service, and with the capacity of 500 tons a day, from  aidsoiiglit  this one machine, our total capacity in the mill is now 630,-  000 tons a year at full production. Our Kraft Mill, with its  first cook being done this past  weekend, and with its two digesters for sawdust and chips,  is expected to go into production around March 1st, and will  produce 525 tons per day.  L;ke other areas, parks are  important to us. Since 1965,  $402,100 has been spent on  parks in our area, of which  some $394,000 was spent on  acquiring property, which will  be developed in the years ahead  Smuggler's Cove; 150 acres  Crowston property near Sechelt, and the 40 acres in the  Pender Harbor area and also  Myrtle  Rock  at Powell  River,  which has been classified as  a Class. C;Park,,The important  thing was* to" acquire ?the land  while it coirid ^stilT be"* had.  Skookemchuck Rapids could  be one of our greatest tourist  attractions. However, T feel  sure that development of a  road, or at least an access to  this, is not too far distant at  this time.  Around May 15, Powell River  will see the opening of its new  26-bed Extended Care Hospital,  and also space for our new  emergency department, kitchen  extension, medical records and  also facilities for occupational  therapy. Total cost is estimated to be $1,145,669. St. Mary's  Hospital at Sechelt is also waiting for final approval which  could be given any day now,  for a 22 extended care bed extension, and 13 acute care beds.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  Q. I sold my farm. The buyers paid their lawyer the money  and I went to his office to sign  the papers. Berore signing, I  asked him if he would .give me  his cheque when I signed. He  said he wouldn't but would  pay me when he got the papers  back from the land office and  it was in another city and the  papers had to go by mail. I  wouldn't sign. The interim  agreement which the real estate man wrote out didn't say  anything about waiting for any  land office. I don't understand  the whole deal.

You have  made just about every mistake  possible.   Never   sign   a   docu-  what I want to know is, can I  ment concerning anything as  important as a sale of land  that is drawn by a real estate  agent. There is no such thing  by law as an "interim agreement." If you don't understand  the transaction you should have  your own lawyer advise you.  Don't consult the buyer's lawyer ��� his duty is to his clients  only.  As far as the time for pay  out in concerned, the lawyer  is quite correct. No sane seller would pay out the sale price  till the documents were registered in the land registry office. For all the seller's iawyer knows, you may have sold  your land to another, or mortgaged it, or have had a judgment registered against it, or  any number of things since he  conducted his land registry  search. He won't pay you till  the documents are registered  and he has satisfied himself  that nothing- has been registered against' the land.

Since that time  modern medicine has achieved  one of its most dramatic successes. The story can be told in  statistics: between. 1950 and  1962, the death rate from hypertension dropped more than 50%  among middle-aged Canadian  men and women, ages 45 - 64.  The secret weapon in the  successful counter-attack on  hypertension is really an arsenal: several potent new drugs  which singly, or in various  combinations, can bring down  high blood pressure and keep  it down ��� if the disease is detected and treated early.  Because high blood pressure  can encroach and advance  without producing any warning  symptoms, the importance of  regular physical examinations  cannot be stressed too often.  Regular physical examination  will bring high blood pressure  to light.  The new pressure-lowering  drugs are only a part ��� albeit  the major part��� of the attack  on hypertension. Other measures to control blood pressure  include:  Reduction of excess weight,  since overweight aggravates  the condition and the risk of  heart attack;  Cessation of cigarette smoking, 'because smoking just one  or two cigarettes brings an immediate rise in blood pressure,  also smoking is an added  coronary risk factor.  In suitable cases, reduction  of salt intake in the diet, if the  doctor prescribes it.  You and your doctor can  work together now to control .  your blood pressure and reduce your risk of having a  heart attack. Meanwhile, scientists all over the world are"  working to discover and eliminate the underlying causes of  all cardio-vascular disease. Until they do, the B.C. Heart  Foundation urges, give yourself a head start in heading off  heart attacks.  Further information and free  booklets on this subject may  be obtained from the B.C. Heart  Foundation.

The Institutes' colors of green,  white and yellow were used on  the tables in snowdrops, Crocus and fern and on the icing  of the birthday cake, which  was cut by Mrs. W. Hodgson,  president.  The evening was spent in  playing of games, contests,  charades and bingo.  A presentation was made to  Mrs. J. Corlett for her faithful work during the past year  and an officers pin to Mrs. J.  Warwick on the completion of  her term as a director.  Letters fo edifor  Editor: I see T rated the front  page of your good paper last  week re our lot in Headlands.  That was a most stupid remark  made by a member of our council. Surely he can tell the difference between a lot not cleared and a mess of machinery,  etc.  We did clear that lot 2-3  years ago then some idiot dug  a deep ditch and bulldozed a  heap of mud and debri in front  not much incentive to go on  clearing.  One lady on the street asked  if I would like to borrow a pair  of boxing gloves. That might  have been a good idea it I  knew which council member  made that remark but I guess  he vvas not man enough to  sign his name. ��� Lily Hammond.

Powered with a  6LX Gardner, it develops 110 H.P. at 1,300 R.P.M. The name is  still undecided. The next couple of months will find Dave busy  rigging it for fishing in April. Also installing electronics.  Editor: In reference to the  Community College for which a  referendum comes up in March.  It rather seems as though  Gibsons.and the Sechelt Peninsula may be subsidizing the  north coast, West Vancouver,  North Vancouver, Horseshoe  Bay, etc.  The hours of classes are to  be from '4:30 p.m. to, 10:30 p.m.  I understand. Any of the North  Shore residents can live at home  and go back and forth by car;  our young people would not be  able to do this and I fear that  boarding facilities might not be  easy to find in West or North  Vancouver and at 11 p.m. travelling back to Vancouver is  not too easy.  I think our taxes would be  better spent on having a grade  13 at Elphinstone High School.  If necessary at night. It would  be easier of access and the pupils able to live at home.  ���M. E.

The Gallery was one of 48 Arts  Council projects in B.C. to qualify for a grant from the Centennial Cultural fund. This is  an annual affair and grants  must be re-applied for.  The Gallery committee would  welcome suggestions and ideas  as to how to use this grant to  the best advantage of the maximum number of residents of  this area. With their representative on the gallery committee  the Indian people of Sechelt are  now wondering how best to use  part of the grant, to foster interest in traditional crafts, or  branch out into, something new.  Ceramics enthusiasts are interested in a kiln and artists seek  a workshop.  CARPET WINNER  Mr. Ervin Benner was the  winner of the Gallery carpet  rafifle.

D. R. McLean  HON.  ISABEL DAWSON  Here we are once again, having completed the fifth full week  of the 2nd Session of the 28th  Parliament of British Columbia,  and these sessions continue to  be quite lively, for now the  budget debate is completed, we  are dealing with the estimates  of the various departments.  Last week we saw completion  of the premier's office, the department of finance, and the department of industrial development, trade, and commerce.  Numerous bills have, come  up for second reading, including Bill No. 22, the Act Respecting Workmen's Compensation, which now goes to the  standing committee on labor, of  which I am a member. I notice  we have two meetings this week  on this, Wednesday and Thursday morning.  * * *  Today, March 4th, I chair a  meeting of senior officials in  the division of aged and the  welfare department to finalize  arrangements for B.C. Hydro  bus passes and to start plans  on the elderly citizens counsellors project.  A standing committee that is  receiving considerable publicity  is the social welfare and educational committee, of which I  am also a member. We are  studying the affects of marijuana and lysergic drugs, particularly on young people. Last  Monday, we listened to, and  questioned, Mr. Hoskins and  Mr. Maurice Young, of the  Narcotic Addiction foundation,  and on Thursday and Friday,  we had Superintendent Price  and two of his drug squad from  Vancouver. A ' tremqndous  amount of data is being compiled, which will prove of great  importance and value to all of  us in B.C.  * * *  Two items of interest to the  Sunshine Coast is that from  June 21 to September 2, the  Langdale Queen will supplement the Sunshine Coast Queen  and with these two ships on the  run, we will have the carrying  capacity equivalent to almost  three ferries, of the size that  have been operating on the run  for the past few years. This  hourly service will go into effect also for these busy periods  where such service is indicated.  Also, I am pleased that in  addition to the $800 cultural  grant to the Powell River area,  $194.50 has been approved to  the Powell River and District  Music Festival for the fiscal  year, 1967/68. This is based on  statistics sent to us by the B.C.  Music Festival Association and  is based on the formula of $100  per Festival plus 50 cents per  entry in the Festival.  It was also my privilege, Friday, to unveil a plaque in the  rotunda of the legislative chambers on behalf of the Provincial Council of Women and the  B.C. Centennial committee. This  was in commemoration of women obtaining their franchise.  * * *  Last week in the legislature,  we were treated to bright golden daffodils placed on every  members desk by the Greater  Vancouver Visitors & Convention Bureau.

Coast News, March 7,  1968.    5  Fire assessment problem settled       35 attend  At a meeting of the Council of  the Sechelt Band, attended by  George F. Gallagher, of the Indian Affairs Branch, Vancouver,  Monday night, the question of  the renewal of an agreement between the local fire district and  the Band for fire protection of  the Reserve village was discussed.  Contention between the fire  district and the people of the  Indian village, arose last year  when a second $250 was asked.  This was turned down by the  band, contending it had already  paid the regular annual amount.  Notice was later given that  an assessment of $500 for the  year would be made. Exception  to this notice was taken on two  counts by the Band, first, the  term assessment implied a  house-to-house tax and as the  Reserve is under the federal department of Indian affairs, such  assessment cannot be levied by  any government unless in the  form of an agreement by the  chief council and members of  the band.  Second, the levy of $500 to  supply fire protection for the  Reserve was unreasonable and  the methods employed to extract  this  sum unbusinesslike.  The spokesman for the Reserve said the Band council regretted the contention that had  arisen, as there had always  been such harmony with their  neighbors. This was indicated  by the free gift donation of 11  acres of reserve land to St.  Mary's Hospital several years  ago. He also pointed out that  the incidence of fires in the Reserve village has been remarkably low.  As an emergency measure of  fire protection the Indian council also considered the advisability of re-equipping'the village  with fire hose and extinguishers.  A proposed agreement to supply fire protection for the Reserve between the fire district  and the Indian Affairs branch,  Vancouver, on behalf of the Sechelt Band was presented to the  Reserve council by Mr. Gallagher, and after much discussion, a  basis was agreed upon, the  draft of which is now in the  hands of the Indian Affairs  branch for presentation to the  fire district.  Many at Prayer service  Mrs. AY F. Willis welcomed  more than 50 women to Calvary  Baptist church, March 1, the  World Day of Prayer. Representative women of the Anglican, Baptist, Pentecostal and  United churches led the congregation in the service of prayer  and commitment.

"You can," Dr. Coolie Verner  of the UBC Adult Education  staff told participants in' a recent workshop on adult education in Gibsons, "(but it takes  longer," he added.  The all day workshop, sponsored by the Adult Education  department of School District  No. 46, held on Feb. 24 at the  Cedars Inn, drew 35 participants from a wide cross-section  of the community.  They included members of the  night school teaching, staff, man  agement, labor, the public  school teaching staff, the Sechelt Indian Band, the school  board, the village council and  other groups.  The goal of the workshop was  to introduce the psychology of  adult learning and instruction  methods to members of the  community involved in adult  leadership and instruction.  Dr. Verner demonstrated his  subject by examining the why  and how of the learning process  that was taking place in the  workshop among the participants. The all-day session was  the first of a series of work  shops on adult education. The  next will be in October.  Hall paintings  given praise  (By FRED  CARNEY)  The paintings of Mrs. Hall,  which can be seen at the Sechelt Art Gallery, exhibit some  of the best qualities of amateur  paintings. I'll hasten to add,  since the word amateur has so  often been used as a slur, that  good amateur painters such as  Mrs. Hall, display a regard for  the craft, subject and meaning  of painting that many professional  painters   could heed.  Mrs. Hall is concerned particularly with her subject matter, but unlike painters such  as Edward Hicks or Grandma  Moses, this concern for the subject does not involve that meticulous search for detail that  marks the works of the primitives. It's not just a difference  of emphasis that separates the  primitive from the amateur but  a quite disparate approach to  painting While the primitive is  consumed by his particular  vision that excludes, really,  any consideration of the tradition of western art, Mrs. Hall  constantly refers to this legacy  and learns from it.  She has already developed a  quite competent technical ability and there is every indication  that this competence will continue to grow. This technical  igrowth will, I feel, only enhance her already sensitive response to and indeed contemplative approach to the world  around her.  Thus, her love of the subject  and her knowledge of craft result in paintings like Storm  Scene where a sensitive response to landscape and a careful consideration of form have  resulted in paintings that become something other than just  competent painting but are  rather works that explore her  unique view of the world.  Author wi  lelp writers  Raymond Hull, currently  teaching classes in creative  writing for the school district's  adult education department,  will lecture this summer to the  Pacific Northwest- Writers Conference  at Bellingham.  The P.N.W.C., a non-profit  literary association, invites  Canadian writers to attend its  sessions, and to enter its literary  contests for short stories,  articles, poetry and novels.

By imaginatively using spools  of mercerized cotton thread,  you can add a special touch to  your gift packaging.  Attach the designs to packages with double-faced tape,  and they can be saved for another holiday season.  To make pompoms, take a  spool of thread and slash across  it with a single-edged razor.  Remove the thread from the  spool in one bundle and tie it  in the centre with matching  thread. Then fluff.  A single pompom will make  a thread flower. Loop a pipe  cleaner under the centre tie  of   the   pompom,      and     wind  florist tape around the pipe  cleaner. Start at the top and  catch in the thread tie. Continue twisting tape around the  pipe cleaner, and catch in velvet leaves on either, side.  For a topiary tree, you will  need three small spools of red  cotton mercerized thread. Two  pompoms can be made from  each spool by tying the thread  bundle on each side of the centre and cutting between the  ties.  Sew the six small pompoms  to a four-inch red felt circle,  interspersing with holly berries.  ���Use green velvet ribbon for a  stem, and cut a flower pot  shape from red felt.

UNDER-STORY WORKER  When cutting down a tree,  the beaver uses only his lower  incisors as cutting tools. The  upper teeeth are used merely  to hold onto the tree. The  beaver must be assured of water at. least two or three feet  deep the year round as a refuge  from its enemies, a highway to  float food and lumber, and a  cache for its food reserves. Not  all beaver build dams to surround their houses with water.  Many live in deep ponds or  rivers where, even at lower  levels, there is ample water  for their needs.

CONSTRUCTION   COSTS   UP  Look ���for a 1968 increase in  construction costs similar to  that of last year, warns Ed  Trefiak, editor of Building Supply Dealer. And wage increases  will figure prominently in the  rise. Last year the index of  building materials prices was  up 3.7% and the wage rate was  up by 9.8%, for a combined  rise of 8.8%. In 1968, 85% of  firms surveyed recently forecast a 3% to 10% increase in  wages, and another 10 % of  firms expect wage hikes of 10%  or more. Last year, 92% of  firms surveyed paid higher  wages. -  First Gibsons B Pack celebrated its father and son night,  Monday, Feb. 17.

Elphinstone  Chapter No. 65, Order of the  Eastern Star, cancer dressing  group.  After dinner the ladies were  entertained at the home of their  convenor, Mrs. H. Pearson, Wilson Creek.

Members are again appealing  for flannelette and -cotton sheets  in Sechelt where plans were  discussed regarding the Regional meeting to be held April  24 in Sechelt's Legion hall. It  was suggested that members  of this auxiliary serve tea and  assist in conducting tours  through the hospital. A letter  of thanks was read from Mr.  Buckley for our donations to  the hospital.  A discussion on membership  teas resulted in the following  members offering their homes:  Mrs. T. Sparling,- Garden Bay;  Mrs. L. Alexander, Francis  Peninsula and Mrs. O. Sladey  and Mrs. G. Gooldrup, Madeira  Park. In this it is hoped to increase the membership during  Hospital Week, May 5 to 11.  Tentative plans for money  raising activities were discussed.

The next  meeting will be held March 13  at 2 p.m. at Madeira Park  Clinic' building.  Bus problem  Necessity for a daily bus service on the Sunshine Coast was  stressed in a letter to the Regional District board from Mrs.  B. Garner of Wilson Creek.  Mrs. Garner protested the  lack of a daily service during  the strike and comments by  directors brought up the point  at Friday night's meeting that  many people depended on the  buses for the delivery of drugs  and medical services.  Desite the fact it was not  within the powers of the regional board to handle such matters  the chairman said he would approach Sechelt Motor Transport officials to see what could  be done.  To discover what is possible  under such circumstances the  board will write the Public  Utilities Commission to ascertain what responsibility there is  for maintaining a bus service  within the area under abnormal  conditions.

Sechelt News  (By MARIE FIRTH)  Now that the ferry strike is  over, everyone seems to want  to go somewhere and those who  have been somewhere are anxious to get back home. Among  those to finally arrive home on  the first day's run were Mr.  and Mrs. Dave Hayward who  extended their holidays nearly  two weeks and sat out the strike  at friends in Burnaiby. While  holidaying in California, they  spent several days at Desert  Springs where they met Mr. and  Mrs. H. Sawyer of West Sechelt  who have been spending the win  ter in the sun, also Mr. and  Mrs. C. Davis, former residents  of the Sunshine Coast, and Mrs.  Roberts of Davis Bay.  Visitors over the weekend at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. B.  Firth were Mr. and Mrs. Steve  Firth and Karen of Coquitlam,  Mr. and Mrs. Eldon Isaak and  Laurie of Dawson Creek, and  Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Daly of  Murrayville.  Books in library  GIBSONS NEW BOOKS  Adult Non-Fiction:  The S>mug Minority by Pierre  Berton.  Beyond  the  Furthest  Fences  by Margaret Ford.  Adult Fiction:  The Scorpio Letters by Victor  Canning.  Rafe by Weldon Hill.  About 200 persons attended  the illustrated lecture by H.  Klyne Headley, school district  supervisor of music, aided by  colored slides, tape recordings  and three classes of songsters  from two elementary schools.  The first part of the evening  was devoted to listening to the  youngsters from Mrs. Marie  Scott's kindergarten class at  Gibsons elementary. The children displayed a freedom on  stage which one would not expect and sang their numbers  with great confidence. They enjoyed what they were doing.  Mrs. Muriel Neilson's grade  one from Gibsons elementary  showed fine co-ordination and  they too had no thought of stage  fright. Miss Shirley Hooker's  grade three from Roberts Creek  school sang with noticeable clarity. All three classes gave more  than was anticipated in their desire to reveal their various stages of musical ability.  The recorder class under Mr.  Drew McKee, instructor of Gibsons elementary school, displayed their abilities on their instruments which were pleasing to  the ear. The Trapp Family in  their concert programs throughout the United States have done  considerable to extoll the usefulness of the recorder as a  musical instrument. The performance of Giibsons pupils was  delightful.  Not on the program but quite  welcome, was Mark English,  who, on the difficult French  horn, with Mr. Headley at the  piano, tackled some Mozart and  Mendelssohn. If that was his  first solo public performance  he is a natural.  The  second part  of the program was Mr. Headley's experiences  on  his  trip to Hungary  and Czechoslovakia. Difficulties  with the electronics part of his  lecture were  a  distraction but  experience can overcame them.  His   dissertation  on the   arts  generally in those countries was  informing and as he pointed out  the   children   could  have  been  from  classes on  the  Sunshine  Coast.   As   regards   dress   and  manner they were no different.  One angle of music instruction  he brought back with him was  the simple method of equating  the hand with the music staff on  which  notes   are  written.   This  simplifies   in   the   young  mind  how to rememlber the position  of notes as written.  His experience in Europe revealed the arts were just as  much a part of the educational  system as was arithmetic. Coordination in the mind as revealed through development of  music was just as important as  mathematical coordination in  the use of figures.  In 1965, the Kodaly method  from Hungary was introduced  into district schools. Zoltan Kodaly, who died last summer at  the age of 85, was one of Hungary's foremost contemporary  composers and had for many  years concentrated on the teaching of music, especially to young  children. As a result of the work  done in Hungary and Czechoslovakia a remarkable worldwide reformation, in music education has come aibout.  Last summer Mr. Headley  made a study of music education in these countries. His colored slides and tape recordings  supplied additional information  of teaching techniques and allowed the audience to hear some  of the children's work in these  countries. This talk and demonstration of the methods and  techniques used in music education was sponsored jointly by  the school board and the Sunshine Coast Arts Council.

Mr. and Mrs. Jay Hemming  and three children, driving  from Ontario, pulled into Horseshoe Bay just in time to make  the first ferry on Friday, and  are guests of Mr. and Mrs. S.  T; Black.  Mrs. W. Luoma, Campbell  River, and her hosts, Mr. and  Mrs. C. Hilchie, benefited by  the ferry strike inasmuch as a  visit that was to be for a couple  of days lasted more than two  weeks and gave Mrs. Luoma  an opportunity to renew old  friendships.  The Luoma family which included three children, Helen,  Robert and Bruce, arrived at  Roberts Creek with the B & K  Logging Company and remained until it closed down at which  time they moved to Campbell  River. Their home was on the  McMahon property on Beach  Avenue and the children attended  the   old  Elphinstone   School  tovwhich they walked daily. All  are now married and living in  Campbell River, and among  them have seven grandchildren  for Mrs. Luoma. Bill Luoma  passed away last spring.  Mrs. C.
