However council feels that for better control  over the dogs it will be necessary to have regulations tightened. Alderman Crosby said he  was seeking copies of dog bylaws from other municipalities  for comparison.  Letters from the department  of highways in Victoria and  from Hon.

Hydro's newest high-  voltage transmission line.  The 230,000-volt powerline  was built along 50 miles of difficult, hilly terrain between  Cheekye, near Squamish, and  Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast.  This line has been energized initially at 138,000 volts. It  makes more power available to  the area northwest of Sechelt,  including the McMillan Bloedel  Ltd. plant at Powell River. Sechelt, Powell River and other  Sunshine Coast communities  previously were served by a  single 132,000-volt line originating at Cheekye.

Tickets may be obtained from Walt Nygren's at  the top of the wharf, Gibsons,  any member of the club or  phone President Roy Malyea,  at 886-9575.  Holiday weekend  traffic very heavy  If you had disembarked from  the Langdale ferry at Horseshoe  Bay Good Friday at about 11:30  a.m. you would have found the  waiting ferry traffic lineup extended from the slip back as far  as the West Vance liver side of  the Fishermen's Cove lookout  spot.  For about a mile from the slip  they were parked three deep,  then two deep and at the receiving end of the line one deep. Returning if you had caught the  5:30 p.m. ferry to Langdale you  would have received an identification ticket which would be  in the 950 plus range, which  could have meant that more  than 1,000 cars took the trip to  Langdale that day.  Boatloads returning to Vancouver Sunday and Monday did  not create too much havoc. The  late evening ferries Sunday  were not full and on Monday  traffic   was   heaivy   throughout  the day and well on into the  evening.  It is quite possible that the  amount of traffic that went  through the Horseshoe Bay slips  during Easter weekend, both  ways, is something of a record.  RCMP Police report heavy  traffic but only one minor accident in the Gibsons area.  However two radar traps were  set up, one in Sunnycrest area  and the other in the Granthams  20 mile zone. There were 48  speeders nabbed.  In Sechelt RCMP area, traffic was also heavy with one  accident in which four Powell  River people were hurt, with  facial cuts, bruises, a broken  arm and broken ribs. Injured  were Glen, Eleanore, Shirla and  John Hartley of Powell River.  William Golko of Burnaby was  driving the other car involved  in the mishap in the Halfmoon  Bay area.  .v-v7/ -% H_P-^y/  On his return from a recent  trip to Ottawa conferring with  Hon. Arthur Laing, minister of  Indian Affairs, Clarence Joe of  the Sechelt band was presented  with a voluitne containing  Treaties with the Indians of  North America dating from 1763  and placed in book form in the  reign of Queen Victoria.  While in Ottawa he was taken  on a conducted tour of the new  dept. of Indian Affairs quarters  and was impressed with , the  number of young Indian men  and women employed as clerks  and secretaries in the many divisions throughout the department.  Indian problems aired  Home from the 14th annual  conference of Indians . and  Metis in Winnipeg April 4, 5  and 6, Clarence Joe, manager  and general secretary of the  Sechelt band, in company with  Guy Williamson, President of  the National Indian Brotherhood of B.C., expressed their  appreciation of the work accomplished at this meeting.  More than 2,000 Indians and  Metis from New Brunswick to  British Columbia conducted one  of the most far-reaching conferences ever held by Canadians  of Indian birth. The address of  welcome was given by Walter  Weir, premier of Manitoba, at  a dinner in the Marlborough  Hotel sponsored by the Community Welfare Planning council in co-operation with the  Manitoba Indian Brotherhood,  the Manitoba Metis federation  and Indian and Metis Youth of  Manitoba and attended by delegates, civic, provincial and federal officials.  The meeting was addressed  by George Munro, past president of the Indian and Metis  Friendship Centre, Winnipeg.  The speaker was introduced by  Louis Riel. direct descendeht  of the famous Metis leader.  During the dinner word was received of the assassination of  Martin Luther King and in respect to another great leader,  the meeting stood in silent  tribute.  Out of the three-day deliberations in which every aspect of  the Indian problem was covered, a meeting of the National  Canadian Indian Brotherhood  was called for May 22 at .Regina by Chief W. P. Deiter,  President of the Federation pf  Saskatchewan Indians at which  time consolidation of all Indian  and Metis Tribes and Bands into  a national brotherhood is the  objective.  At the conclusion of the three  day conference, Clarence . Jpe  came away with the conviction  shared by the other delegates  that tribes from the interior,  particularly the prairie provinces, were even more organized than the coastal brotherhood in an awareness of the  developments and opportunities  offered by the new Indian Act  in choosing a path for advancement for all Indians and Metis:  Giant bingo to help OAPs  Sechelt Branch OAPO is planning a giant Bingo party on  May 11 at the Legion Hall, Sechelt.. The local Legion Branch  is donating the use of the hall  and providing bingo cards and  a real effort will be made to  raise funds which will go towards the Sunshine Coast  Senior Citizen's Housing project. A $200 jackpot will be the  highlight of the evening and  there  will be  cash  prizes  for  every game. Come on out and  help in this community effort,  and have fun at the same time.  The Legion W.A. will serve refreshments.

Martin Luther King  Two weeks ago the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., pacifist  leader of Black America, died from an assassin's bullet. He was  only thirty-nine. In the lasit dozen of those thirty-nine years he  changed the face of America forever.  The foundations of the injustices that remain have been undermined and shall never be shored up again ��� undermined by the pacific but practical dream that he himself so eloquently described.  Men may confer and men may consult, but iman must dream  alone and his great dream that someday his people might have  equal opportunity with all other Americans was made of the stuff  that touches the hearts and souls of men.  To bring life to such a dream is to accept danger and pain as  normal and to constantly walk hand in hand with death.  In the last few weeks of his life this man carried something  more than a premonition of death; it became a peacefully accepted foreknowledge. Into Thy Hands, O Lord.  Great lover of life that he was, he yet seemed to feel that his  day was almost done and that, if fate so decreed, the last and  probably greatest service that he could render his race would be  to die a violent death.  Fate so decreed; for one final, brief, but unforgettable moment  he focused the eyes of America and the conscience of the world on  his people. God rest his soul. ��� Jules A. Mainil..  In praise of children  If behavior as shown toy Sechelt school grades, two and three  while on a tour of the Hough farm on Pratt road and through the  Coast News plant are an indication of what is to Ibe expected from  our young generation, the future, based on their behavior, is promising.  Trustee Norman Hough at the last school board meeting where  Principal W. L. Reid outlined the day's tour of the two grades,  spoke right up and said he had never seen 'better behaved youngsters and in such numbers. There were more than 50 of them.  A few kind words now-and again have the knack of creating a  better atmosphere and grades two and three of Sechelt's- Elementary school have now created a niche for themselves in the school  hall of fame.  After visiting the farm they visited the Coast News office and  became absorbed in how a weekly newspaper operates. Luckily  one of the early press runs was underway and most of them were  enthralled with the operation of the big four page press spewing  out sheet after sheet all neatly printed. They were no trouble at  all and none were reported temporarily missing when it came time  to take the bus home. Children like that are always welcome.  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)   '  Copyright applied for  Q. I have heard that a lawyer  ican only charge 2% of the  .value of an estate for handling  et. Our lawyer is charging 4%.  What can we do?  A. It is not the rule that a  lawyer can charge only 2% for  "handling" an estate. He may  make a charge of 2% for obtaining a grant of letters probate and preparing and filing  ,probate forms, provincial and  federal death tax forms, settling the amount of death taxes  and duties payable to both the  province and Canada, and  where necessary, obtaining the  court's approval to the accounts  of the executor. /  If the lawyer is only being  paid 2%, he could stop at this  point but this would leave half  ��the work yet to be done. The  executor couldn't very well  complete the estate as it really  4s a job for a lawyer.  , After doing all the above  mentioned things, there would  still be all the assets to transfer. Land has to be transmitted in the land registry office.  This would have to be done  twice ��� once to the executor  ,and once again to the beneficiaries. Stocks and bonds have  to be transmitted. The records  ipf the registrar of motor vehicles have to be altered where  applicable.. Bank accounts must  be transferred. AH legacies  must be transferred and payments made of gifts and debts>  etc.. For all this the lawyer is  entitled to make an additional  charge according to a laid  down scale at so much for each  Jtem -��� letters, documents, attendances, etc.  It is common, however, for  an addtkmal percentage to be  charged. The executor is in  general entitled to 5%, but only  if he does every thing beyond  the work included in the 2%  charge. If the lawyer does it  the extra charge would have  to come out of the executor's  portion. If, in your case, the  lawyer is receiving 4% and the  executor 3% ��� this totals 7%,  ihe same as 2% plus 5% and  ;this sounds about right. If there  is a disagreement concerning  the lawyer's fee, you can apply to the registrar of the court  to set his fee.

I regret that we did;not have  all the time that we would have  liked to have spent at your establishment. The children found  the various phases of making a  paper absolutely fascinating,  and even though they may be  young in years, I feel that they  gained a much better insight  and understanding towards what  care and effort goes into making their local newspaper.  Please convey our appreciation also to your staff for their  kindness and patience.  ���W. L. Reid, Principal.  Editor:   The  board of directors  of the  B.C.

Editor: Our executive director, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova  is presently in India on a tour  of USC projects in that country. It has been brought to her  attention that recently, over  $331 was raised in Gibsons for  the USC Cup of Milk fund.  She has asked me to write  and express her deep gratitude  to the people of Gibsons for  this magnificent contribution.  Her thanks also go to Mrs. R.  F. Bennie who made this gift  possible by holding a Cup of  Milk Coffee Party. This amount  of money will provide many  cups of milk for children and  on their behalf we say a most  sincere thank you. ��� (Mrs.)  Sheila Bennett, assistant to Dr.  Hitschmanova.  Editor: We are safely moved  and settled on Saltspring Island.  With our thanks to a very efficient mover, Len Wray. We  highly recommend him.  ���George and Grace McDonald  Editor: During the 15 years  that we had our old dog that  was killed a year ago we paid  the $1 tax regularly/ My wife's  son gave her a poodle and as  soon as - it was, past the four  months she purchased a tag; the  price has been doubled, it was  $2.f So how we have paid $17  dog tax like a good decent law  respecting person would. But  by doing so we haye been penalized because there are hundreds of d��Ss running round all  over the unorganized territory  without any tag.  Part of the oath taken by a  member of the RCMP when he  becomes a legal member of the  police says: "I, A.B., solemnly swear; I will faithfully, diligently and impartially execute  and perform the duties required"  of me as a member of the  ROMP."  Is it not part pf the duty to  enforce the provisions of the  Sheep Protection act which covers the taxing of dogs in uhor-:,  ganized territory? The taxpayers are losing many hundreds  of dollars because this law is  not enforced as it should be.  Roberts Creek is part of the  territory included in the charter of the original Gibsons  Board of Trade, now called the  Chamber of Commerce. But  they d�� not seem concerned in  this-case, it is certainly par^of  their responsibility.  ���B. L. Cope.  ARDA gets  to interior  Some 1,125 acres of irrigated  orchards, involving 129 farms,  in   British   Columbia's   Okana-  gan Valley will benefit from; an  ARDA project recently approved by federal forestry and rural development minister Maurice Sauve and British Columbia  agriculture minister Frank Rich-  ter.  The project, to be implemented by the B.C. Water Resources  service, department of lands,  forests and water resources calls  for the rehabilitation of a por-.  tion of the Lakeview Irrigation-  district water distributing system, with cost to be equally  shared by the federal and provincial governments and the  Lakeview Irrigation district.  The latter will; operate and  maintain the project.  In addition to providing an assured uninterrupted irrigation  water supply for the highly productive orchard lands,, this  ARDA - sponsored undertaking  will ensure a domestic water  supply for the 120 farms that  comprise the area.  Beetles licked  Valuable saw and peeler log  booms in B.C. coastal waters  will be protected from the  wood-boring Ambrosia Beetle  ,this year by the use of a new  insecticide, B.C. Loggers' Division, Council of the Forest  Industries of British Columbia,  said today.-  The insecticide, methyl trith-  ion, which decomposes quickly  on exposure to water, is the  result of three years of research  sponsored by the council to discover a better means of log  protection with a maximum of  safety for other forms of life,  the division said. The insecticide will be applied by helicopter to logs in booms.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Lots on Sechelt's main street  were, advertised at $325 and  $425. Lots were 62x122 feet.

"We will  riot permit unconscionable profits  to business,"   the phrases  usually go. "We will not permit the public to be mulcted."  However, when governments  are in business things are quite  different, as indicated by figures regarding the prices of  beer and liquor made public  following the most recent sales  tax increase.

Where your fingers do the walking.  With the passing of Mr. John  Dew on March 28,/in yancouver,  Gower Point lost one of its  most successful gardeners. In  the 12 years he had lived here  John Dew made many friends,  his enthusiasm for life arid unfailing cheerfulness endearing  him to young and old.  Fiercely independent and determine d to live his own life  without fear or favor he was  also madly generous. A visit to"1  his garden invariably resulted  in your going home laden with  fruit, flowers, vegetables and  precious cuttings.  His greenhouse provided tomato plants and seedlings for  all his friends and the only payment he ever accepted was a  small token cutting or plant  from your garden. Plants which  turned sickly and refused to  flourish for the rest of us were  miraculously restored to health  and blossomed profusely when  given to John Dew.  Born in Lincolnshire, England in 1892 he came to Canada  in his early 20sI; and lived for  many years in Cloverdale in; the  Fraser Valley, and, before retiring to Gower Point, at Park-  hurst. He leaves a son, daughter and eight grandchildren in  Vancouver.  Coast News, April 18. 1968.

(By MARffi FIRTH)     ;  Guests for Easter dinner at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. M.  A. Shaw, were Mr. and Mrs.  W. McGregor of Sechelt and  Mr. Morris Dean; of Vancouver.  Mr. Dean is a very well known  organist arid besides teaching,  plays in the Collingwood United  Church,  Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Russell  of Tuwaneck" have finally moved into the new home they have  been working on. Both Mr. and  Mrs; Russell are retired constructional engineers and have  designed and built their modern  six-sided home on a beautiful  site overlooking Sechelt Inlet  and plan to landscape the  grounds  Japanese  style.  Mr. and Mrs. Pat Mullens  with daughters, Janice and  Jerri, flew to Nanaimo,to spend  the Easter weekend with relatives.  Summer residents who came  up to the Sunshine Coast this  weekend, instead of having  lovely spring weather in which  to clean up and get their camps  in order, have had all they  could do to keep warm. Those  who are lucky enough to have  wood or coal stoves or large  fireplaces have been using  them. Visitors for the same  week last April all had sun-  tans and one day in particular  at Pender Harbor the sun was  so hot straw hats were needed.  Among the many Easter visitors in Sechelt are: Mrs. Christine Baird of Youfbou and her  two tiny daughters, Toni and  Tina, who are visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Stan Bryant for several days. Mr.  Stephen Baird arrived to join  his   family over  the   weekend.  The Friendship Tea at Mrs.  D. Hayward's home on April  23 contains an invitation which  will welcome  all visitors.

Rennie  home for the week are Mr. and  Mrs. J. R. Bothwell and two  sons, of Butte, Montana.  Mrs. Ruth Linton, of North  Vancouver, and former prominent resident and writer of Roberts Creek, has been advised  that her Centennial prize winning story has been' published in  a volume entitled My Home,  My Native Land, which is to be  used in supplementary reading  in Canadian schools. Mrs. Linton is pleased, and only hopes  the little ca_>tive readers will  enjoy the story.  The A. Craigheads came last  weekend from North Vancouver  to their summer home at the  beach for a pre-season visit.  Attending the 112th Ex-Service  Women's reunion recently in  Legion hall auditorium- in Burnaby from Robertfs Creek, was  Mrs. W. F. Clark, who served  as a Staff Sgt. with the CWAC  in London, England, for three  years during World War #.  Among the more than 600 ex-  Army, Navy and Air Force wa-  men present was Mrs. Isabel  Dawson who was pleased to  meet one of her constituents.  Mrs. Clark enjoyed meeting  many of her girls, with whom  she had served overseas and  found that they were girls no  longer, but matrons with girls  of their own. She was frequently asked if she had written her  book yet, the book being a  threat she had held over them  during barracks days. Exposures were to be frank and numerous. It seems she has not  yet completed it.  Mickey Balbla, ifbrmerly of  Roberts Creek,' suffered third  degree burns on his hand and  arm while working in the garage in which he is co-owner  with Brian Flumerfelt at Wil-  laans Lake. On returning to the  Creek after visiting him, Mrs.  K. Baba reports that, although  he is well and making good pro-  ress| he will be" in * hospital for  some time yet. Members   of  Gibsons United Church  CGIT provided Easter,  favors for patients in St. Mary's hospital. Above is one of them  with a number of the favors, all ready, in the background.  Librarian now painter  Paintings on display in the  Gallery until the end of the  month will be an inspiration to  those who wish they had time  to paint and are afraid opportunity is passing them by. Eleanor Ormrod has had a happy  and successful career as a  school librarian and teacher of  history but far too busy to follow up all her many interests.  Now retired and living in Sechelt she has time to paint for  pleasure.  Miss Ormrod describes herself as strictly a beginner. Four  years ago while on a South Pacific cruise she was able to take  lessons for six weeks from Warren Brandon, Californian artist  and Fellow of the Royal Society  of Arts.  Miss Ormrod's canvases represent a variety of land and seascapes and a lively, adventurous  mind, continually probing and  searching, is revealed in the  variety of techniques, media and  subjects, oils, water colors, palette knife, traditional and abstract.  Name change  by resolution  At the well attended annual  meeting of the Roberts Creek  Credit Union, presided over by  retiring President J. R. McSay-  aney, in the Anglican Parish  Hall, Gibsons, the progress and  financial standing shown by the  secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Florence E. Johnson, indicated excess of revenue over expenditure of $6,608.75. Payment of a  patronage refund of 10% on interest loans in 1967 was authorized and a dividend of 416% on  the minimum quarterly balance  of shares will be paid to members.  In an extraordinary resolution  the name of Roberts Creek Credit Union was changed to Sunshine Coast Credit Union in order to eliminate confusion with  the credit union being situated  in Sechelt.  A collections office to serve  Gibsons area is open and operating on Gower Point road, with  Mrs. Florence MoSavaney in  charge.  Incoming officers are Eric Rosen, president; Gordon Walker,  vice-president; directors, Gordon Wing and Eric Inglis. Continuing directors are Mrs. Eric  M. Ball, Eric Rosen and Gordon  Walker, cliff Connor was elected by acclamation to the credit  committee and Mrs.^_C. Hall to  the supervisory committee.  SECHELT BREAKINS  While no breakins were reported by Gibsons RCMP, Sechelt detachment reported two.  At Joe Benner's store a radio  and some cash was stolen. At  Campbell's Variety store a  check is continuing to find out  what was stolen.  DRAW FOR PAINTING  Mrs. Kathleen Wells has donated her much admired painting of Garden Bay to raise  funds for the Gallery. A donation of 25c will entitle you to a  chance on- the May draw. Mrs.  O. Swanson, Trueman Road,  Gibsons, was the. holder of ticket No. 30, and won the coffee  pot donated by'Mrs. Rose* Hauka.  Miss Ormrod credits her inspiration to her long association  with the Port Alberni Sketch  clulb, of which she was a supporting rather than active member, and the many fine artists  and craftsmen who were the  founding members of the Alberni Arts Council. Miss^ Ormrod  was a member of the steering  committee which formed the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council and  is a valued member of ,the gallery committee. On Friday, April 19, the gallery will be open  from 7 to 9 p.m. for a social occasion to meet the artist. Coffee will be served.  Delegate back  from convention  By HEATHER WHEELER)  (A Delegate)  Hurrah! Vive le Canada! Tru-  deau-Canada!  As Mr. Trudeau made his way  to the podium after victory on  the fourth ballot, the chant in  Ottawa's Civic Centre changed  from We want Trudeau! to We  got Trudeau!  This was the high point of the  National Liberal convention, a  new leader and prime minister.  The delegates cheered. It's a  great way to release tension  built up in seven or eight hours  of voting.  The delegates themselves had  to be elected by their own riding association. The candidates  then wooed the delegates in  speeches, informal talks, in hospitality suites, with- coffee,  breakfast, bands, and demonstrations. Strangely enough the  delegates kept their perspective. They seemed to have conscientiously chosen their candidate with an eye to ability rather than showmanship. Yet,  some said the final choice of  1,203 delegates was a gamble.  Well, yes, Mr. Trudeau is a  gamible. As with the other candidates, there is the chance  that Mr. Trudeau could be a  failure as prime minister. However, there is also an excellent  chance that Pierre Trudeau will  make a great prime minister.  Care to gamble?  Any complaints?  Hon. John N. Turner, minister of consumer and corporate  affairs, announces that consumers may now mail complaints or  inquiries to The Consumer,  P.O.  Box  99,   Ottawa, Ontario.  Mr. Turner explained that in  the past the consumer has not  known where to send complaints  because consumer legislation  is administered by many government departments and agencies. "I represet the consumer  in the federal government, and  I want the consumer to have  easy and direct access to me  and my department," Mr. Turner said.  Complaints or inquiries sent  to The Consumer, P.O. Box 99,  Ottawa, Ontario will be assured  of quick action.  ARE BEST SELLERS  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886-2622  Coast News, April 18, 1968.       5   .  era for  Canadian voter  Davis expects  By   JACK  DAVIS, M.P.  (Coast Capilano)  Canada is in a restive mood.  The Canadian electorate wants  a change; it wants a change in  leadership and is .looking for  new goals, new policies and new  ways of doing things.  Proof of this can be found in  the recent Liberal leadership  convention. Who won? Pierre  Elliott Trudeau, the freshest  face in the Liberal party.  But the mood for change can  be demonstrated in other ways.  Bob Winters, who also became  a memiber of parliament (again)  in 1965, polled 954 votes at the  convention, second only to Pierre Trudeau's 1205.. Together  these two new faces oh the federal scene got a 95% backing  from the convention. And they  got this backing because, they  both wanted a change ��� a  change in the way things are  being run in Ottawa these days.  Both are anti-establishment  men. One, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, is a non-conformist, an  individualist, a free spirit who  refuses to be bound by the doctrinaire approaches of the past.  The other, Bob Winters, would  finance new programs by economizing elsewhere. He would  launch new projects by cutting  out old schemes. And hold the  line on taxes that Canadians', as  individuals, would have a greater say in how they will spend  their income in the future.  Both Pierre Elliott Trudeau  and Bob Winters, believe in the  free movement of goods, money  and men. They believe in attracting U.S. capital to Canada.  They believe in freer trade.  No special status for Quebec  for them. And no more univjer-  sal programs for social security! Government cheques are  not the answer to many of our  human ills, says Mr. Trudeau.  And I can just hear Bob Winters sayinjg Amen. :  7  When the house of commons  meets again on April 23, we will  be entering a new era in Canadian politics. A new prime minster will face a new leader of  the official opposition. And the  Canadian public will, at long  last, have a clear choiceMt will  be able to choose between two  major political parties, the Liberals and the Conservatives,  whose leadership and whose  policies are clearly different  one from the ,other.  STAFF  CHANGE  Until a secretary-treasurer is  appointed by the district school  board the administrative section of the board will continue  with Peter Wilson as secretary-  treasurer with Lloyd Yorkston,  accountant filling in as accountant and doing work of the assistant secretary.  Appointment of the top positions of the administrative staff  will await the selection of the  secretary-treasurer. He will in  turn  hire the necessary  staff.  BOAT IS  MOVED  The RCMP power boat established in Gibsons area has been  moved to Pender Harbor region, according to recent developments. This will leave  Gibsons area without an RCMP  boat but the police if necessary can always hire available  craft in an emergency. Vancouver RCMP craft are available within an hour.  UCW THRIFT SALE  The UCW oi Giibsons United  church will hold a thrift sale  Friday in the church hall from  10 a.m. until noon. There will  be clothing for men, women  and children also millinery,  jewelry, books and plants for  the garden. There will be something for everyone and who  knows, a three-legged chair  might show up.

LANGUAGE ARTS IN  ELEMENTARY   SCHOOLS  At  Mrs.   Kwasney's  Grade  1  class,      Gibsons      Elementary  school,     Glenn     Littlejohn    is  working on mural of a farm.  Maureen Forsyth and Tim  Robertson are examining the  mural on the wall.  It was a nuge picture, brightly colored and attractive, with  a black sun in the sky''and  white tires on the car. Danny  had written this story to go  with his picture. This is my  Dad's car. It is night-time. My  Dad's car has snowtires.  It was just five months since  Danny had started school. Already he had read the first two  texts of the beginning reading  program, in addition to three  preprimers. At least twice a  week he and his group would  paint a picture and write the  story  for  it,  with  any needed  help from the teacher. This  was the new language arts program in action.       ;  The language arts program  of the elementary schools comprises oral and silent reading,  oral and written language, spelling and handwriting. Teachers  must assess the relative emphasis on listening, speaking,  reading, and writing. Today's  world is one in which the ability  to listen to radio, television,  record player, tape recorder  and talking film, and then to  interpret and evaluate it, is of  utmost importance to a citizen  who needs to understand local,  provicial, national, and international affairs.  Good listening habits, are  recognized, cultivated, and  practised from a child's entry  into school and throughout his  school life. ./.'  Reading is not simply the  ability to pronounce words.  Meaning must be   attached  to  these "words. Comprehension of  what is read is the first necessity, but there are many reading skills that are crucial. Children must have skill in locating  information, in organizing material, in taking notes, in converting notes to connected talk  or writing, in outlining, in recognizing sources of information  on any problem, and n developing ways of recalling or of  memorizing those ' facts and  principles. .  Dramatics, not necessarily  dramatic play, is another example of language arts. The use  of puppets, the impersonation  of a character, pantomine,  similated radio or television  broadcasts all have their part  in the language arts program.  Included then, > ih the lian-  guage/ arts program are all  parts of school learning not included in arithmetic, music,  art, social studies, science and  physical education.  Fashion show fills two halls  It was a sell/out affair at both  Pender Harbour Secondary  School and Port Mellon Community Hall last week when the  auxiliaries of St. Mary's' Hospital held their spring fashion  :- show Spring Around the World,  convened by Mrs. Isobel Gooldrup and Mrs. Paulette Smith.  The fashion show depicting  fashion highlights around the  world was presented with a running commentary by Margaret  Christiansen with entertainment  by accordionist Wolfgang Buck-  horn, soloist Mrs. Lucille Mueller and accompanist Mrs. Mae  Freer.  Mrs. Isabel Dawson, minister  without portfolio, was on hand  to present the autographed copy  of Dr. Martin P. Shulman's best  seller Anyone Can Make a Million, to Mrs. Lynn Panasuk.  Door prizes were won by Mesdames Jo Macey, Forda Gallier,  Gail Pednault,. Home, Lorraine  Knapman, Ken Black, Oscar  Johnson.  An  outstanding  hit  was   the  Fly your kite  to avoid lines  Three power failures in the  past month were caused by  careless kite flyers, according  to B.C. Hydro. Each resulted in  inconvenience to many people,  but ��� more important ��� each  could have resulted in a tragic  mishap.  The outages occurred in Kamloops, South Vancouver and  Surrey when loose kites with  metallic parts hit powerlines.  Typical was the incident in Surrey last Saturday when a kite  crossed a 12,000 volt powerline  near 146th Street and 105A Avenue. The contact burned two  wires, throwing out an entire  circuit and blacking out a large  residential area for more than  half an hour.  Had the young kite flyer involved been holding on to the  string when the kite made contact with the powerline, he  could have been seriously injured, or killed. Even if the kite  had had no metal parts, a damp  string could have resulted in a  serious accident.  So, says B.C. Hydro regional  manager Bob Norminton, kite  enthusiasts should fly kites in an  open field, away from electric  power wires" or transmission  towers.

At all times, and especially  when a member of the family  is ill, disinfect .cotton cloths  and house hold articles by adding a liquid chlorine bleach  or a pine oil disinfectant to the  load when you wash. If you  use the bleach, put it in the  wash water so the chlorine will  be removed in rinsing. A pine  oil disinfectant may be added  either to the wash or to the  rinse water.  Removing Fruit Juice Stains:  Because a fruit juice stain becomes  invisible  after  it dries,  it's best to remove the spot  immediately after juice is spilled. Otherwise the stain will  turn yellow with heat or age.  To remove a fresh stain from  cotton fabric, sponge with cool  water, or pour boiling water  through the spot from a height  of about a meter (one to three  feet). Remove old fruit juice  stains from cotton by bleaching.  Preventing Iron Sheen: To  prevent an iron from making  fabrics shiny from steam pressing, cover your iron with a  thin white cotton sock. Slit the  sock above the toe, and pull  it over the tip of the iron. Tie  the sock to fit smoothly around  the bottom of the iron.

GRANT ERBROOK DAVIS,  Executor,  By:  H.  S. ROBINSON,  4'"        Solicitor for the  : Executor.;  Litter pt resig  Music supervisor  Coast News, April 18, 1968.  In the following letter by Mr.  Klyne Headley, supervisor of  music for the school district, he  is critical of the lack of support by Mr. Gordon E,. Johnson,  district superintendent. Mr.  Headley's complete letter to  Mr. Peter WilsonV school board  secretary-treasurer, follows-:  Dear Mr.Wilson:  It is with regret that I tender.  my   resignation   as" Supervisor/  of Music for School District No.  46 (Sechelt)  effective June 28,  1968.  I wish to thank the Board  of Trustees for their support  of the imusic program which I  have attempted to establish in  the schools.    ,  I am deeply interested in and  also concerned about the future of music education and the  opportunities that can be provided for the children. I have  found the children most responsive in all of the schools and  their potential for learning and  achievement, through the discovery of their abilities and  skills, is unlimited. There is  .concrete evidence of. progress  which I should /like to discuss.  The following facts are offered  in support of my belief that  progress has been made.  I Progress Report  1. On June 11, 1965, I submitted to the District Superintendent and mailed a copy to the  Board of Trustees, a "Proposed  ���Program for Music TEducation  for the Sechelt School;.District  No. 46." I should like to state  .that most of the objective's  listed have been attained, I  should like to draw attention  to page 3, III, Summary   7  "Before a program of music  education    can   proceed, it  will be necessary to know  about policies and budgets.  May I please have a reaction  to  this  proposed  pro-  ... gram. "...,���, -������ ���. .7 ���...,.- 7.7; ,.~..  I received  no   answer,   comments, criticisms or suggestions  from Mr.  Gordon E.  Johnson,  District Superintendent, regard-,  ing this proposed program for  music education.  2. A balanced music education program includes general  music education for kindergarten through grade 12, choral  and instrumental music instruction. The band and orchestra  program was begun as well as  the choral program in the fall  of 1965 and some of the results  were seen at the first Festival  given in May, 1966. The general  music program which involves  the teaching of singing, the development of co-ordination, ear-  training and listening became  a major project. In-service  training for teachers, demonstrations by myself in the classrooms, district workshops and  many other means were employed to up-grade the teaching and co-ordinate work.  3. At considerable personal  expense, I took three research  courses at the University of  British Columbia, prepared a  Survey for the British Columbia Music Educators entitled  "The Status of Instrumental  Music Education in the Public  Schools in British Columbia."  (March 31, 1967.) This research  led to a continuation of studies  in Czechoslovakia and Hungary  where the most progressive  ideas and methods and teaching  material had been developed.  Progressive school districts in  most of the countries of the  western world, as well as the  far east and Russia, have been  effected by these contributions  in music education. In 1966 I  began .to introduce some of  these ideas into the schools of  this district and have continued  to make available to the teachers and children, the fruits of  my research. The results were  and are V easily seen through  observation within the classrooms "Where those ideas,have,  been put into effect.  4. The finest teaching aids,  niusic books and supplies have  been provided for every school.  5. The co-ordination, as well  as^the organization of the music  program, has required a considerable amount, of office wQfck  which" is unavoidable. In spite of  this, work that had to be done  was done. The monthly reports  to the District Superintendent  will show a considerable amount  of time. that I spent in the  schools in supervision, consul-  tatian, teaching, demonstrating  and in conference with the  principals. I have these reports  to substantiate this statement  for the Board of Trustees upon  its request.  I make this offer so that I  may refute, with facts, statements consistently made by the  District Superintendent that too  much of my time was spent  in administration and not  enough time was spent in the  schools.  6. A second Festival was presented in May, 1967. The junior  band appeared in concert with  Dave Robbins' orchestra from  CBC and a massed choir from  the schools also participated.  The quality of their performance is a matter of record.  7. During this school year a  document concerned-" with analysis of the duties and responsibilities that I assumed and  carried out as Supervisor of  Music was made available to  each member of the Board and  also to the District Superintendent. A preview of this report  Will show the complexity of my  position; and the amount of time  required to carry out all of  the duties., outlined in. this document. This position was not one  that could be filled in a seven  or eight hour day but has required work throughout the day  and the evening seven days a  week over the past three years.  II. Obstacles to Progress  1. With one exception, Mr.  Gordon Johnson, District Superintendent of Schools, has failed  to support me in my efforts  to establish and develop a  music education program in the  schools. The exception came  about because of a petition  signed by over a hundred parents who requested more school  time for the teaching of instrumental music. The first report that Mr. Johnson prepared  and submitted to me, the  School Trustees and .the Department of Education in Victoria, was the first poor report I have received during my  37 years of teaching. I have  in my possession the confidential reports of college presidents and '" superintendents of  schools covering a period between 1928 and 1965 which I  am prepared to offer to the  Board of School Trustees for  examination. All of these reports are positive and enthusiastic in reference to me and  my work. It seems very strange  that in this} school district that  there should be such a drastic  change in my abilities and work  as was suggested in Mr. Johnson's first report in May, 1966.  Since my coming to this district, and the beginning of my  work in 1965 until the present  time, Mr. Johson has not once  been in my classroom where  I was teaching, demonstrating  for the teachers or in any other  manner carryng out my work  in the schools. Mr. Johnson's  report was based upon the  opinion of others rather than  from actual knowledge gained  from his own observations. If  an inspector is charged with  the responsibility of giving an  actual and factual report, it  would seem most unfair to gain  these impressions second hand  and also with very limited information.  2. The instrumental music  program which got off to a  good start in 1965, was discouraged by Mr. Johnson and,  in many cases, supported by  the principals af the elementary schools. In spite of the  phenomenal (growth of instrumental music education in this  province, and the high degree  of success of instrumental  music education in the Powell  River District, ' Mr. Johnson  continuously tried to limit the  band and orchestra program  here. This was done, particularly in the school- *year-" 1&66-  .1967,..by,an order to the effect  that    general    music must be  ins  programmed first. This forced  the principals and myself, to  schedule band instrument instruction for 20 to 30 minutes  at the end of the school day,  once a week. Mr. Robert Williams, who was employed in  September, 1967, was unable  under this program to. teach  satisfactorily ���- hence the petition for more instructional time  mentioned above. This condition  steriously set back the band  program which led to public  criticism. When the critics of  the music program were most  vocal Mr. Johnson was quoted  in the press as saying that the  music program was "not very  good but he hoped that it would  get better. This is hardly the  kind of support that would give  confidence to me, Ma:.. Williams,  the schools or the public.  3. On February 7, 1968 a letter from Mr. Johnson to me  discussed the music program  and his personal opinions as  well as those shared by some  members of the Board of School  Trustees regarding the question of whether or* hot there  should be a supervisor of music  for this district. Mr.. Johnson,  in -this letter, stated that he  believed that there should be  a supervisor of music to plan  and co-ordinate the music program.  On Monday, March 25^ 1968,  Mr. Johnson informed me that  he, was recommending to the  Board of Trustees that the position of supervisor of music  should be abolished. Again, in  a little over a month, Mr. Johnson has reversed his position.  He gave as his reasons criticisms from some principals and  teachers. I should like to repeat, that without first hand  knowledge, through direct observation within the classrooms,  that this is a questionable procedure to follow. I have urged  Mr. Johnson to accompany me  and see for himself the progress  that the children are making  within, the classrooms of our  schools. He agreed that this  was a good idea but never followed through.  III. Summary  This lengthy letter has been  carefully and thoughtfully prepared so that the School Trustees may be motivated to consider all sides of this problem  ��� namely the future of music  education in this district. It is  impossible for any member of  the teaching or administrative  staff to do his best work without support, without confidence  and in .the face of certain pressures that inevitably grow out  of the kinds of relationships  and situations created by Mr.  Gordon Johnson. The unrest,  the open criticism by some of  the principals of Mr. Johnson  are well known. My purpose in  making these statements is to  help, not hinder, the correction  of a critical and dangerous  situation that has developed  within our schools.  I should like to conclude with  the sincere hope that this  School District may solve its  problems for the sake of the  children who deserve the best.  Respectfully submitted,  H.

ISABEL DAWSON  Of the many bills that passed  through the legislature, the following are some of the more  important ones:  1. The Workmen's Compensation Act, which with several  amendments, has greatly increased the scope of the Act  and, I believe, has provided a  much, more favorable attitude  to the compensationable worker.  2. Bill 33, with its amendment  allowing only the legislature to  remove the chairman or commissioners from the mediation  commission. Once more, in regard to Bill 33, I would like to  point out that while binding arbitration set out in sections 18  and 1<9 is objected to in some-  quarters, it should be observed  that binding arbitration has existed in this and other jurisdictions for many years. Recourse  to binding, arbitration will only  be taken when all other possible solutions have been exhausted and a lock-out or strike  would, or is of such serious im-  pact on society generally, that  it is essential that anTearly set-  . .lenient be found.  3. An act to amend the Regional Districts Hospital act.  4. An act to amend the Public  Schools Act.  5. An act transferring the  British Columbia Ferries to the  Department of Highways.  6. An amendment to the Credit Union Act.  7. An amendment to the Protection of Children Act.  8. An amendment to the  Teachers' Pension act. ^  9. The $1,000 Home Acquisition grant for new construction.  10. Increase of the Home Own  ers Grant from $120 to $130.  11. The amendment to the  Forest Act.  12. The amendment to the Pollution Control act.  I have found��������� this to be an  interesting and instructive session an_i feel I have broadened  my knowledge of parliamentary  affairs considerably. Once again  I would like to thank the people of my area for the opportunity of representing you in  Victoria. I shall continue to  have your interests at heart.  During the next few weeks, I  shall have the opportunity of  meeting many of you again. I  look forward to the occasion.  Q. "I put in a claim for Unemployment Insurance benefit,  and for the first week they  have not sent me my money.  What can I do? It is the first  time I am unemployed."  When you have a car accident, there is a certain amount  deductible from claims and riot  met under the insurance. It is  the same with unemployment  insurance. For the first week,  or waiting period, of your initial  claim no benefit is normally  payable. If however you re-  qualify for continuing benefit on  a subsequent claim, the waiting period,is liable to be waived.  Your questions too can be referred to this feature for reply.
