Y The panel presentation -was  the same ;as given, at; earlier  Gibsons and Pender Harbour  meetings. Questions revealed  little concern over the $1 million' plebiscite in September for  the Sechelt and other school  construction.

The Pertder Harbour meeting  at Madeira Park school, April 1  was about the same size as that  at Sechelt.

This courtroom is in  the municipal office building on South Fletcher road. Space occupied is in the basement. The remainder of the basement is mostly  that of Elphinstone Museum.  . In a late night meeting following the regul-lr school board  meeting Tuesday the resignation  of Klyrie  Headley,   music  supervisor,, was accepted.  However the music program  in the district schck)ls will continue and arrangement will be  made to obtain the required, personnel. ..Y  No explanation as to the background of the resignation was  offered by the board, it is understood that the board had before  it a lengthy letter,  s^The school district spent $2,28iS  ' "^^^Coanmunity Y^o^geYaffa1#s7  out of this year's biidget, it was  announced at Tuesday nightfs  school board meeting.  As a result the department of  education in Victoria has rer  duced the $16,913 budget amount  for college purposes foy _ $14,000  leaving about $624 in the budget for college disbursements if  any show up.  Secretary-treasurer Peter Wilson explained that as far as he  knew the $2,288 for which the  school district has been billed  is all that will have to foe supplied by this district to the  North Shore college administration to. cover costs in which this  district was involved.  A petition signed foy more than  50 residents of Halfmoon Bay  area requested a public meeting with the board as soon as  possible on the closing of the  Halfmoon Bay school. Board  chairman Don Douglas explained that the school was costing  $10,000 a year for 10 or 11 students. Bus costs in transporting them to Sedhelt or Madeira  Park would be about $2,000.  They would also obtain better  education at the larger schools.  ; Mr, \and Mrs. Van Egmont  appeared on behalf/Of ;the: petitionrsigneraandL suggested^ the  board should have taken the  problem up with the people concerned before stories appeared  in the press. Board Chairman  Douglas- said he would arrange  a meeting when the situation  warranted it.  The Pender Harbour District  Ratepayers Association favored  the transfer  of Halfmoon  Bay .  pupils to  Madeira  Park as  a  cost cutting measure.  The board decided that in line  with other wage increases, the  non-teaching non-union staff of  the school district should receive a six percent wage increase retroactive to January 1.  Vow its  Gibsons  Gibsons Landing has faded  into history. Now it is Gibsons  (without the landing).  A bill in legislature presented  1 by Hon. Dan Campbell, minister of municipal affairs among  other things contained Y this  clause: '  With the effect from the  date this act comes into  force and effect The Corporation of the Village of  Gibsons Landing shall be  called and known by the  name and style of the Village of Gibsons and the Letters patent of the village  are deemed to have been  amended   accordingly.  The change of name idea  started back in 1946 when the  board of trade came to an  agreement about calling it Gibsons resulting in the postal department making it official for  postal purposes.  Since that time the post office has been Gibsons P.O. and  the Municipality, Gibsons Landing..  Two years ago the municipal  council sought to have the  name changed but apparently  a" mixup in[thei legislative processes; resulted Jn the matter .  being dropped from sight. It  was attended to during this session of the house and the re- .  quired legislation was prepared.  Along with this change comes  a unification of titles throughout  : the    municipal7; ajd^inistratidn^  7 In-tlie=pasf v'uTage "councils were-  manned     by     commissioners,  towns by councillors and cities  by aldermen.  The top man in  each case was a chairman in  villages, reeve or chairman in  towns and mayor in cities. Now  under municipal legislation  all  are aldermen and the head man  is   a  mayor.   So   Gibsons   has  Mayor   Fred   Feeney   and  Sechelt, Mayor William Swain.  J  to congregate  Fifty-five pupils from Grades  two and ithree of Sechelt Elementary school under guidance  of Principal W. L. Reid visited  the Coast News newspaper and  printing plant Monday afternoon.  In batches of a dozen or so  they were shown the steps  necessary for the turning out  of. the Coast News from linotype setting, advertisement setting, page make-up to the big  press where the youngsters  were able to watch the press  run off part of the paper.  The visit to the Coast News  completed a day on the move,  starting at a farm, then a play  area, Elphinstone Museum,  lunch on a beach and putting  on a short play at Gibsons Elementary school.  This is the; second batch of  Sechelt children to have seen  how the only weekly newspaper  printed on the Sunshine Coast,  is produced.  Teenage girls from all parts  of the province will gather in  the PNE Gardens on April 18,  19 and 20. The occasion will  be the anniial session of the  Grand Guardian council of B.C.,  I.O.J.D..,.,.  It is expected that about 150  adults will meet in business  sessions and about 500-members will participate in business  sessions and about 500 members in meetings, panels, skits  and, other forms of entertainment. Mrs. Roy. Brock 'of North  Vancouver, grand guardian,  and Mr. Bill: Scarlett of Vancouver, associate grand guardian, will direct the sessions.  The Friday evening sessions  will be open to the public, and'  will start at 7:30 p.m.  In B.C. there are 53' Bethels  consisting of approximately  3,200 girls, ranging in'age from  12 to 20 who are related Mason-  ically. Bethels are located in  Dawson Creek, Terrace,. Prince  George, Williams Lake, the  Kootenays, the Okanagan, the  Island and the Lower Mainland.  TJie first Bethel in Canada was  instituted in Vancouver 38 years  ago.  This organization bases its  teachings on the life of Job.  The members are taught the  value of a ; good life, tolerance  and are given the opportunity  of working for those less fortunate than themselves. Many  groups profit by these efforts,  including the blind, retarded,  disabled; elderly,  Cup of Milk  Fund and adoption of foreign  children. The latest addition to  the list is the making of bandages and sending them to leper  colonies.  The most important project  which involves all members in  the province was instigated in  1952 by Mrs. David Caldwell  who at that time was grand  guardian of B.C. The project  involves the work being done  for Lymphoma Research project of the B.C. Cancer institute. The girls donated in 1967  the sum of $5,793.07 and over  the past 15 years, have contributed upwards of $50,000 to  the  institute.  In 1966, they purchased a  cryostat which is used to quick  freeze tissue specimens and in  1967 a liquid scintillation counter which is used for measuring safe Beta Rays, this latter  piece of equipment costing $10,-  000.  The funds for this project are  raised by door to door candy  and peanut drives, carnivals,  car washes, rummage sales  and bazaars.  In 1970, the Supreme Sessions  which will include participation of all the Bethels throughout the Western World, will be  held in Vancouver and this is  a first for Canada. At this time,  Mrs. William Erith of North  Vancouver will be the Supreme  Guardian. It is expected that  this gathering will be one of  the largest of its kind ever held  in Vancouver.  LLOYD BURRITT  A Gibsons young man making;  his way in the music world is  "Lloyd Burritt, son of Mr. and.  Mrs. Ed Burritt, Gower Point  road. Last week he was given  high honor. He presented his  electronic work based on T.S.  Elliot's' The Hollow Men to  members of the American Music Society's convention on Friday at UBC. He had presented  this work in February at his  master's recital.  Meredith Davies, Vancouver  Symphony orchestra conductor  had asked Lloyd for a symphonic composition for the orchestra's fall series. It will also be  played by the orchestra in Seattle while the Seattle Symphony Orchestra will present  the work of a young American  composer in a Vancouver concert.   .     .  Lloyd / has also received confirmation that he will receive a  Canada Council grant for the  third year. It will amount to  $3,500. Coast News, April 11, 1968.  Serving the Mt.

A new Liberal leader  Selection of Pierre Trudeau as leader of the Liberal party and  prime minister of the government was a real cliff-hanger. Now  Canadians must sit back and see how Prime Minister Trudeau's  convention image will srtand up under pressure of government.  Some regard- his selection to be a breath oirfresh air in the  ranks of Liberalism. Others suspect he is too far left for their liking. However the perfect prime minister has not been discovered  so far in spite of the recent discovery of a prime minister in British Columbia.  The career of Mr. Trudeau in the political field will be one of ���'"  interest. He has fine qualities plus an acceptance by the public  which should give him some leeway in which to operate. He is taking over as head of the government at a rather critical time and  if he is able to master the situation and maintain his suavity at  the same time he could carry the markings of a top-ranking statesman. Let us hope he is. We will need one!  A letter of significance  Editor: For the past few years I have watched with interest  educational trends in this district. The school board has endeavoured to. bring in some innovations which are taken for granted in  larger centres. We have had a district library program, later expanded to include travelling librarians, a music program, remedial^  teachers and a special counsellor. v  True, these do cost money, but each contribute in a special,  way to a complete education which we hope will create a more  mature student, ready to meet the challenge of the outside world.  Qnly a small proportion of our graduates will remain in our district. I thought we had a good school board with some very progressive people in our district.  There seems lately to be individuals or groups who are trying  lo pursue some personal crusade. Of course, we need dedicated  people who will work for some cause or belief, but not at the expense of others. Attacks have been made on trustees and even  some of our school board personnel, encompassing everything from  extravagance to incompetency. I think it is time we all had a good  look at our motives. It is only by a unified effort that we can have  a good educational set-up. Our education staff on whom we depend  to maintain the educational standards cannot foe expected to work  conscientiously and harmoniously under such disturbing conditions.  Trustees have been given the responsibility by their electors  for setting the policy on education in this district. In order to make  wise and knowledgeable decisions, they must be in tune with what  is going on here as well as 'being aware of educational trends for  the future. Problems must be studied from all sides and with the  best interests of the students in mind, before a trustee can cast an  intelligent vote. '  I believe the co-operation of parents, 3 teachers and taxpayers  is necessary to provide a good sound educational climate for our  students. The financial situation as it affects education in the province of B.C. is of great concern to all of us and will- create even  greater problems. Let us all endeavour to approach these profo-,  lems on an impersonal basis, keeping; in mind what .would be most  beneficial to the students throughout the entire school district.       '  ���Agnes Labonte.  The above letter is given editorial prominence because it is  what the editor of the Coast News had in mind for this week's editorial.  Today's trustees might well ask themselves "Why am I a trustee?" One can also ask why we had troublemakers over the last  seven or eight years, from the days of Mrs. Donley ��� and do not  think the Coast News escaped her wrath. The editor received from  one of Vancouver's biggest law firms a registered letter demanding an abject apology to Mrs. Donley in the Coast News or else  face legal proceedings. No apology was made and no legal proceedings followed. Like others she was so wrong, and it cost lawyers' fees to find it out.  Ask yourself the question whether the school board itself without reason decided to have 21 teachers over entitlement. Get that  answer straighened out and you will have something to think  about. Horse-and-buggy thinking dies hard.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  The 52 ft. tug Tyee I, ran  aground in heavy weather at  Merry Island, Welcome Pass.  The crew of six were rescued  by the tug LeMars. ���  Mr. S. Trueman addressed the  Roberts Creek PTA on adolescent Psychology. Mr. Trueman.  high school principal, answered  many questions.  Owing to their being no  quorum at Gibsons Ratepayers  association meeting no business  was discussed but Postmaster  Mr. Telford spoke on postal  matters.  Marshall's Hardware store  has had a face lifting on its  front on Gibsons Marine Drive.  10 YEARS AGO  An announcement from the  Chant Royal Commission on  education states that it is now  ready to receive briefs.  Roberts Creek and Gibsons  districts supplied the Red Cross  March drive for funds with  slightly  more than $1,000.  Pat Walsh writing from Halfmoon Bay said beautiful weathr  er brought many visitors. Some  were seen swimming in vicinity  of Duck Rock.  The month of March > despite  its wintry feel behaved like a  lamb both coming in and going  out.  -A wide variety of fisb are  smoked in Canada. Oily fleshed varieties such as salmon,  herring, goldeye, and black  cod are especially adaptable to  the., smoking process, but the  flavor of lean varieties such  as haddock and Atlantic cod is  enhanced by it. r  The fish are first cleaned,  dressed; and washed. The skin  may br may not be removed  depending on the product.  Heads are left on small fish  but are removed from the  larger species. Some varieties  are opened flat with the backbone remaining on one side.  Others are split into sides or  sliced into, fillets.  After butchering, the fish are  immersed in a strong brine.  This salting is an essential and  important feature of the smoking process. If left unsalted,  the fish tend to sour or, spoil  under temperature and humidity conditions in the smokehouse. Then too, the salted product has a much more appetizing flavor than the unsalted.  The length of time the fishTare  left   in   the   brine   depends   on  HEALTH TIPS���  HOUSEWIFE BACKACHE  If you work arourid the house  all day, that nagging backache  you have is hot because you  don't stand up straight on the  job. The Canadian Medical Association notes in Health, that  the common backache suffered  by many, housewives is not a  disease, but the result of poor  posture while doing housework.  Sway-back or lordosis causes  poor posture.;'''This can be corrected through proper stance  and during rest.  Sleep on your side,on a firm  bed with your knees curled up  under your chin. If the pain  persists in> this position, sleep  on your back with ybur head  on two pillows and your knees  flexed over two or more pillows placed crossways and ro|:  led'in a cylindrical shape.    z\l  The C.M.A. suggests that you  take daytime rests in similar  positions as often as possible,  and break up long periods of  activity into short ones; The  strain of standing still can be  eased by placing one foot on  a chair while stooping slightly  and resting your elbow on the  raised knee. Never stoop to  lift anything without bending  the knee, and never treat a  sore back with exercise,  its strength and also the size  and thickness of the fish.  When brining is complete, the  fish are drained to remove excess moisture and are frequently but not .always given a color  wash to improve their appearance and saleability. A food  dye is used, it colors the surface only and penetrates very  little.  ; .Smokehouses differ widely in  type.'In the most modern, tern-,  perature, humidity, and smoke  density are carefully controlled.  Smoke from smoldering hardwood chips and sawdust is circulated gently over and around  the. fish which are hung suspended on rods or movable  racks, or are sometimes placed on mesh trays.  *      *      *  . There are two general methods of smoking fish, cold smoking and hot smoking. In cold  smoking, the method use?d for  most Canadian cures, the temperature is held -at' around 80  deg. F. for a prescribed number of hours which varies with  the different species. At completion,  the  fish  are  still  raw.;  In. hot smoking, the intention  is to cook. the fish -is well as  smoke it. The smoke reaches  a temperature of 250 deg. F.  or so and the centre of the  fish may be at 140 deg. F. Many  European smoked fish products  are hot smoked. On this continent, the method is used by  some processors for smoking  salmon, white-fish, eels, and  sturgeon.  On emerging from the smokehouse,* the fish are''glossy and  golden on the surface and have  a pleasant smoky aroma. If left  at room temperature,; they will  quickly spoil. ��� At refrigerator  temperature they may keep a  week or more. For long term  storage they must be frozen  or canned.  Top quality frozen smoked  fish should foe solidly frozen  and tightly covered with a  moisture-vapour-proof material.  The surface, if visible, should  have a glossy appearance. Beware packages with a thick  layer of frost on the inside for,  this is evidence of long storage,  poor condition, or both.  '   *       *       *  Smoked fish.require a minimum of cooking. As a result of  the smoking process, they are  slightly cooked already. Cook  them just until they flake easily  when tested with a fork.  While the method of cooking  is a matter of personal taste,  the home economists of the Department of Fisheries of Canada say that in their experience moist heat seems to give  the best result. They recommend such methods as poaching," steaming,   and   baking  in  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  Q: I made a deal to buy some  land. The guy who. is selling  signed the deed in a notaries  office. I said I would pay him  when it was registered and we  agreed to go to the land registry office together. We went  there and we did a search, got  out the big book where his  title is, and you could see he  got clear title and I registered  the papers  and paid him $10,-  000 by  certified  cheque.   Later  1 heard I did this too quick. I  went back to the land registry  and everything is 0;K. Anyhow,  what I want to know for another time, i did I do it right?  Should I have waited longer  like I heard.  A. You better believe it. Fortunately, the transaction was-  satisfactory, but you are a set  up for a land fraud. In the first  place, checking the title means  nothing. You had rio way of  knowing that there were not  any number of pending appli-;  cations, e.g. for . a mortgage  or agreement for sale or a  judgment or even a deed at  the time you searched.  When the documents are received by the cashier, they are  time stamped and placeld in  a basket and in a short time  a clerk takes them and enters  in a book called the property  index registry. It is only some  time later when the documents  have all been checked and processed that they are entered  in the book which contains the  certificates of title. Documents  rank in the order that they are  time stamped.  Many persons check the property index, as well as the title,  before filing > documents for  registration, but this means  very little. There may ibe an  application lying in .the basket  for the property index clerk to  enter. -;*,....  Even checking the property  index after your registration,  would not make it certain that  there was not some encumbrance being slipped ahead of  your deed.. The clerk may be  on his coffee break and on a  busy day it may. be minutes',  or even hours before the entries,  are made in the property, index. The man standingr ah'ead  of you in the queue , for the  cashier may be filing some encumbrance on the land and if.  you checked the property index immediately after.your application, the chances are it  would not be entered. The only  safe way is to come back the  next day and conduct a full  search, before paying out. T  notice you didn't search the  judgment register either, if a  judgment was registered against  the seller, you would have to  pay it. Next time, let your notary or lawyer,do the registration.  an   aluminum   foil   package   or  in a covered container.  Keep   in; mind   that   smoked  fish are well seasoned and need  Jittle   embellishirient   from   the  cook. Just a shake of pepper,  a pat of butter, and a squeeze  of lemon is all that is needed.  When poached, some people  like to thicken the poaching  liquid -and serve it as a sauce  accompaniment. *  N.

"Because you know a physician has to spend  so many years at a medical school and internship in a hospital that he has knowledge about  diseases and their treatment that you couldj  not know. Because, when everyone but a physician selects, a medicine to take, they usually  do not treat the cause of the trouble but only  try to stop the pain or discomfort.  Similar symptoms are often-present in differing medical problems. A physician, aided by  new diagnostic techniques, x-rays, urinalysis, etc,  can find out what is causing your trouble and  prescribe the one particular medicine he decides is best for you. That is why, if self treatments do not help immediately, it is wise to go  to a physician before a possible serious disease  can develop.  Your doctor, can phone ns. when yoii need a  medicine.

In future board officers and  employees will no longer accept verbal approvals from  other agencies. All such ��� now  . must foe in writing. This will  be done to protect all employees as well as officials. In. turn  the Regional board will also  make its confirmations to other  bodies in writing.  Director Lome Wolverton. reported for the board's planning  committee on the result of the  meeting Rev.. W. S. Ackroyd,  Madeira Park over the disposition of the building permit for  further construction on the  church.  Director Wolverton reported  that as a result of the. meeting  Golf course  coming along  Progress on the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club,  grounds is continuing well  ahead of schedule. Seventy percent of the irrigation is already  in place seeding of the, greens  and fairways is the next major  operation and it is expected an  early showing of grass on the  seventh green will foe seen by  motorists passing along the  coast highway shortly. Fill for  this horseshoe green was obtained by bulldozing the right of  way of the road bordering the  course.  Operators with . heavy equip-.  ment have been volunteering  their services over the winter 7  weekends, clearing the trees,  heavy brush and fooulders. Work  parties will foe increased during  the next three months to complete the job. Two houses, donated by Canadian Forest Products are now waiting on skids  at Port Mellon for a volunteer  barge tow-when a tug can foe  made available. Work on the  construction of the clubhouse is  well advanced. Here again, volunteer labor is playing its part  through the efforts of skilled/  tradesmen.  The dub's third dance scheduled for April 6 in the Legion 7  Hall, Sechelt, has foeen sold out  for two weeks. Memberships  are now heading for the 250  mark with enquiries being received from outside parties. An  example of the interest being  shown is reflected by.a group  o f golf cronies of a Roberts  Creek resident, who are already  prospecting for suitable summer camp property in the vicinity of the golf course.

Ackroyd   as  the plan, for the church building presently under construction as being commenced prior  to the inception of Building Bylaw No. 6, this building consisting of the present living  quarters with washroom and  meeting facilities and the new  extension which will become  the sanctuary. Accordingly the  board should advise Rev. Ackroyd that a building permit is  hot required for the, construction of the assembly hall.  The committee also recommended that the board's reply  include advice that this church  falls under the Fire Marshall's  Act and that it ������is.'Rev. Ack-  royd's   responsibility   to   fulfill  the obligations of that Act, particularly Section 20.  As a result the Regional  board views the precedent set  by Rev. Ackroyd's submission  as indicating the board should  consider each submission on its  own merits and with a written  statement of events, which indicates the informal planning  system utilized by owner-builders in the Sunshine Coast Regional District in the past, this  be considered and weighed in  determining status.  In general the building inspector must treat each case  on the basis of fact as he observes it and in accordance  with formal plans. In the case  of the Madeira Park Pentecostal Church the extension was  interpreted,   subject   to   formal  Coast News, April 11, 1968.       3  proof which was not forthcoming, as an extension and thus  sufoject to the bylaw. Furthermore the building inspector is  bound not only by the building  code, but by all provincial statutes and thus the responsibility  for assuring that the Fire Marshal's act is complied with  when applicable.

Wagemaker for a  few dayis, is his sister Correy  and her husband Charles Smith  from Portage la Prairie. They  are enjoying our spring weather  on their first visit to the Sunshine Coast as they left two  inches of snow and a temperature of 22 degrees at home.  The annual display of the adult education art class is currently being shown at Parker's  Hardware in Sechelt. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at what our  next door neighbors are doing in  their spare time and I am sure  they all had a lot of fun doing  it. I have always understood  that this particular showing is  of the work dqne by the night  classes during'the past winter,  and I think that is the way zt  should be kept.  Arriving to spend the weekend with Mr. Walter Plumridge  of Porpoise Bay was his son  Bill and Mr. E. J. Wilson from  Langley. They were lucky  enough to get in a bit of salmon  fishing before leaving Sunday.  Mr. Plumridge returned to  Langley with them to visit for  a few days. They also visited  Mr. and Mrs. B. Firth on Saturday night.  Liberal delegates are back  home from the convention in Ottawa and according to Norman  Watson, it was quite an affair.  He figured that 80% of the delegates voted their own minds, regardless of whom their leader  voted for, and the net results  were just about as seen beforehand. Mr. Trudeau will bring a  breath of fresh air into the government and maybe it will be  for the best. Ottawa welcomed  them all' with lovely brisk spring  weather; and the city transportation company co-operated by  free bus trips to any part of the  city for all delegates,  A reminder to all members of  the OAPO of the meeting on April 18 at the Legion Hall in Sechelt.

The back  ground of Eastern' Canada was  shown in contrast to Western  Canada and emphasized the dependence on good leadership  and dedication in getting things  done right.  Roberts Creek  pioneer of 1900  Mrs. Margaret Eleanor Roberts, 78, died in hospital on  March 29, in Vancouver. Born  in England, Mrs. Roberts came  to Vancouver at an early age  and was married there, She was  predeceased by her husband,  Bill, whom she first met in England when she was eight and he  12 when they attended the wedding of his brother, Tom, to her  sister, Nancy, in 1898.  Bill Roberts, after whose family Roberts Creek was named,  first arrived at the Creek in  July, 1900, several years after  his uncle, also Bill, had preempted acreage including beach  and forest land. It was to Roberts Creek that Bill brought his  wife and where their five children were brought up. In May,  1965, the Roberts sold their  home and moved to Vancouver.  Mrs. Roberts is survived foy  two sons, Syd, Oregon; Art, :  Burnaby; three daughters, Dolly, Mrs. G. Stanley, Powell River; Connie, Mrs. C. Potter,  California; Kay, Mrs. R. Kit-  chin, Virginia; 1 sister, Mrs. A.  Harbinson, Roberts Creek; one  brother, Harry B'all, Courtenay; nine grandchildren; four  great-grandchildren.

NOW NOTARY PUBLIC  Ewart McMynn of McMynn  Realty, Gibsons, has received  official notice of his appointment as a notary public.  The monthly meeting of the  Sechelt Garden club was held  on April 3 at the home of Mrs.  M. DeHart with an attendance  of 28. Mr. Frank Read, in the  chair, welcomed, five new members.  Among the subjects under discussion was the May Day parade on May 20. A committee  was formed, headed by Mr. Roy  Olson, to plan a float for the  occasion. Also discussed was  the annual spring Flower Show  on June 22.  Miss Adele deLange will be  asked to open the show and the  judges to be invited are Mr.  Jack. Kirkland and Mr. Barber,  the former Garden Man. It was  decided also, because of the interest shown last year to have  a children's class up to and including the age of 12 years. It  is not necessary for the children or their parents to belong  to the Garden Club to enter in  this class. The hope is it will  create an interest and love for  gardening in the younger generation.  A motion was passed to have  a letter sent to the department  of conservation and recreation,  in conjunction with several other  organizations in the district, to  have one of the Trail Islands  set aside as a Wild Flower preserve. It is said that for the  cize of the island there are more  and greater varieties of wild  flowers than in any comparable  area in southern B.C.  Mr. Jack Kirkland, an authority on chrysanthemums, then  gave a very constructive talk  on the care and growing of these  flowers, from the first stage of  preparing the ground, to the  final delight of producing flowers good enough for the Flower  show. Mrs, Nancy Read and the  refreshment committee then  served   delicious   refreshments.  Mr. Gordon Potts donated a  beautiful cerise colored Cineraria to be raiffled to help swell  the building fund, and the lucky  winner was Mrs. M. Firth.  BETWEEN 6 AND 9 p,m. Wednesday April' 17; Kinsmen members  will canvass the area to raise $100,000. The money will be used  for a capital addition to the Kinsmen Laboratory of Neurological  Research at University of British Columbia. "  The two floors of the laboratory tower are already nearing  completion. The addition will more than double the spaice available  in present facilities.  There are more than 30 people on the Kinsmen laboratory  staff. Although small by some laboratory standards, it is a staff  of brilliant background and enormous potential for achievement.  Some of these achievements and the calibre of people attracted  have gained world attention.  The Kinsmen Laboratory occupies the top floors of this impressive University of British Columbia building. Construction is  already underway.

BENJAMIN D. FIRTH,  RETURNING OFFICER  Glowing colors  Jure Blacks  fo B.C. coast  Because opportunity had become so limited in Dundee,  Scotland), George and Edith  Black followed the trail taken  by so many Scots and emigrated to Canada.  Possbly it was the glowing  colors painted by George's sister, Mrs. Ann Gordon, formerly of Sechelt, now residing temporarily in Scotland, that lured  the Blacks over the ocean and  across the continent to the Sunshine Coast.  Arriving in Gibsons early in  January, George lost no time  in putting his eight years' experience as movie projectionist  and electronics expert in serving TV, Hi-Fi and radio to  practical use in this area, working with Don Hauka, of Gibsons Electric.  The Blacks are impressed  with the friendliness of the people in these parts, although a  bit phased by the free and easy  use of first names, particularly  in business, after being brought  up in an atmosphere where  Scottish decorum required the  formality of Mr. and Mrs.  When attending the recent  local Burns Night he was puzzled by the local pronunciation  of the Bard's Christian name,  Robbie in stead of the Rabbie  Burns to which he was accustomed. However, the ceremony  of the haggis more than made  up for this  slight discrepancy.  Born and brought up by the  waters of Dundee which by the  way George points out is famous for the distillation of good  Scotch whiskey, he is itching  to acquire his own boat as he  was a ski-boat enthusiast back  home. He is also amazed at  the much lower price of gas  and electricity here as compared to over there. All in all  the Blacks while missing their  hameland look forward to the  opportunity and greater freedom, of movement of this new  life  on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Black while qualified as  an office secretary likes to do  a bit of gardening and when  holiday time comes around this  summer, the Blacks hope to  take to the road in their trailer  as vacation caravanning in  Scotland  was   their delight.  UIC news  Q. "I come under the regulations governing seasonal Unemployment Insurance benefits,  and have read in a UIC booklet  that benefits should be paid until the week in which,May 15th  falls. The local UIC office stopped paying me a month before  that. They say that my entitlement has run out."  Seasonal benefits are subject  to conditions of entitlement,  just as conditions of entitlemient  apply to regular benefit. In  both cases you receive in the  measure of your contributions.  Therefore, while the week in  which May 15th occurs is the  last week for which seasonal  benefit can be paid, this does  not mean that all seasonal benefit claims are paid up to and  including it-hat week. Your contributions were apparently not  sufficient to carry you so far.  Q. "I want to file an initial  claim for Unemployment Insurance benefit. Where shall I  get my application form?"  Your local Post Office will  give you ithe form you need.  Fill it up carefully, then mail  it without delay. Make sure the  address card is facing outward  through the window1 when you  place the card in the envelope.  Questions should be referred  to Information Services, Unemployment Insurance Commission, Vanier Building, 222  Nepean St., Ottawa, Ont.

POPULATION INCREASED  Population increases in Canadian cities based on June 1,  1967, figures show a trend different from what most B.C.  people would suspect.  For instance the greatest increase occurred in Kitchener,  Ont., where it reached 23.9 percent. Prairie cities were also  greater than Vancouver or Victoria, who reached 12.9 and  was up 20.8 percent, Regina  17 percent, Calgary and Edmonton both 18.6 percent.  Toronto and Montreal were 1.2  and 15.4 respectively.  Etiquette  Q. When sending a reply to a  wedding invitation and reception, should it .-foe addressed to  the bride-elect or to her parents?  A.

His position, newly appointed,  fulfills many areas of pupil-  teacher - parent involvement  often left at loose ends in previous years. He has become involved in many areas, providing invaluable advice regarding  integration problems, remedial  programs, group counselling,  E.T.V., residential home for the  retarded, and others.  I had intended to write a letter such as this early in the  year, and as time is drawing  to a close in regards to this  present term, I felt that I should  like to express my appreciation  before the year is completely  over. ��� W.

Bob Williams, teacher-  musical instructor and band  master is proud of the progress  being made by his Sousaphone  player who elected to master it  only last fall.  When asked why she chose  this particular instrument, Laurel said she was entranced by  the deep throated tone of this  complicated mass of tubing. As  for her personal ambitions Miss  DeVal admitted she had two in  mind, the first to become a  police woman and as an alternative, a construction engineer.  And if she tackles either of  these vocations with the same  .determination and aptitude that  she handles the Sousaphone, it  is quite conceivable she could  have her choice of either. Meantime she is content to oompah  on her Sousaphone. looking forward to the band's first appearance in public.

THE OLD PROFESSOR mixes a comic brew as Johnny .Wayne  and Frank Shuster get ready for another of their Wayne and Shuster comedy specials for CBC-TV's Show of the Week. Their next  hour in color is April 22.  Auxiliaries praised  Women's auxiliaries to St.  Mary's Hospital are .sharing a  large part of the hospital costs,  and this fact was stressed by  the chairman of the co-ordinating council, Mrs. D. Philp, in  her annual report given at the  meeting of March 26.  Since the opening of the hospital thousands of dollars and  thousands of hours of service  have, been freely given. Members have given of their time  and talents to provide patients  with services such as regularly  scheduled visits, knitting of  bafoy clothing, sewing hospital  garments, hairdressing, providing magazines, etc.  When funds aire needed to  provide equipment for the hospital, members never fail to do  their utmost to raise these funds  The auxiliaries have raised the  money from a variety of projects held throughout the year,  projects such as bake sales,  teas, dinners, catering, raffles,  and a good deal of hard work  every week at the Thrift Shop.  While the membership is  steadily growing, so too are the  needs growing, and the ladies  will welcome new members to  help with thisi most worthwhile  contribution to the life of the  community.  To maintain the supply of  stock at the Thrift Shop the  Roberts Creek Auxiliary will  provide a local pick-up service  on April 8 for White Elephant  articles. There is a particular  need for dishes. If residents  ,/have any in cupboard or attic,  they might manage a spot of  houseoleaning while simultaneously doing a good deed by telephoning the secretary, Mrs. M.  Tiibb, 886-2361 or Mrs. D. Marshall, 886-747_i and the car will  be there on April 8.  Clipping talk subject  At the Giibsons United Church  U.C.W. meeting on Thursday,  March 28, the devotional period  was given by Mrs. K. Faris.  Her topic was God inspires; we  call on Him, from the theme  God speaks, we answer. From  this a timely thought, taken  from a newspaper clipping: A  church which thinks of itself  exclusively as an instrument in  the hands of those who have a  conscience aibout the present  need, is. inadequate to meet the  deepest need of the human personality.  Mrs. Ellen Chamfberlin gave  an enlightening talk on the B.C.  Indians. Starting from their ancient cuture, religion and ability, with primitive tools to form  things of great beauty, through  the coming of the missionaries,  who endured great hardships to  bring education and Christian  religion to the Indians, to the  present day struggles of men  such as the late Rev, Peter Kel-  ley who work tirelessly for the  understanding of the Indians  and their need to be treated for  what they are, citizens of B.C.  Due to the resignation of the  treasurer, Mrs. Lee Macey, Mrs.  E. Forbes,   nominating   chairman put forth the name of Mrs.  F. Daugherty, who was elected  treasurer unanimously.  The service project Meals on  wheels,   was   dropped  for   the  oresent due to lack of response.  Forty letters plus questionnaires  were sent out and 10 replies received. The OAiPO suggested  that a service of car pools for  older shoppers would foe appreciated, and all visiting groups  could foe more active. This will  be set up when more information is available. The Grandale  unit served tea at conclusion of  the meeting.

Contracting  Coast Highway, ��� Gibsons Editor: I have been taught  that in this democratic country  a man can be fairly dealt with,  so I feel that it is now time  for Ray Chamberlin to strike  back, and acquaint the public  with the facts of his summary  dismissal from the School  Board Office.  I believe it is the only time  in history that a man has been  dismissed because he couldn't  do another man's job. Nothing  was said about the job he has  been doing for nearly three  years, the. job he was hired to  do, which includes purchasing  and transportation. No warning  was given that dismissal was  imminent, and - no letter was  sent by the board, nor has any  been received as yet. The dismissal came by word of mouth  from Peter Wilson, and was  effective  immediately.  After, due consideration, I  sent a letter to the board members requesting a hearing,  which was answered eight days  later by a letter from the Board  chairman, saying they could  see no reason to pursue the  matter further. I feel that I  have something to say for myself and have been overwhelmed with the number of people  who have contacted me offering to testify on, my be-  thalf, many people whom I  have dealt with through the office, and friends throughout the  Sunshine Coast.  My family and I have tried  to become a part of this community ��� have bought a home  here and taken part in many  activities, and we would like  to stay here. But on the other  hand, if a man can have his  name blackened in this way,  and have to leave here under  a cloud without a chance to  be heard or clear his name,  then this is a sick place, and  I am sorry for ;you all. ��� Ray  Chamberlin.       VS  Editor: I should like to thank  you for your excellent reporting of the Jack Davis meeting  which appeared in your March  28 issue. 7,  There have been many favorable reactions to the inclusion  of the questions in your article  which came from the audience.  -I personally feel that such  exposure through the press  (questions from the public)  should motivate bur citizens to  do more thinking about community betterment. On behalf  of our Committee on Community Resources, may I again  thank you for your co-operation. ��� H. Klyne Headley,  chairman, Community Resources committee, Sunshine  Coast Arts council.  Editor: Ten days ago we  walked around Gospel Rock and  stopped to admire, with mixed  emotions the Easter Lilies which  were coming into flower. The  joy at sight of these lovely fragile blossoms, with gently curling petals nodding in graceful  stems was mixed with sadness  ��� so few are left where once  BAKED GOODS  The family will enjoy  Easter weekend meals,  with treats from HENRY'S  . . . but order early to  get your share of the  delicious assortment of  ovenHfresh bake goods.

This past Sunday a family,  parents and two young sons,  discovered them and picked every last one. By now these loverly lilies, stiff and formal in a  vase will have withered in the  indoor heat and 'be thrown out  with the garbage. Left in their  natural surroundings, their  shimmering white beauty enhanced foy dark green moss and  delicate freshly emerging leaf  they would last for several  weeks, giving joy and a singing,  heart to every passer foy. Then  when the petals finally faded  and dropped the plant's real fulfillment would take place in living seeds scattered to bring  promise of lilies to brighten our  spring in 1975.  Easter Lilies (Erythroniums)  are slow growers, the small bulb  lying deeprooted takes seven  years to accumulate the/necessary food and strength to produce the flower, and like all  bulbs the root is easily damaged if the stalk is pulled rather  than being carefully snapped.  So when the flower is picked reproduction from seed is eliminated and the existing plant frequently damaged, hence the fast  decreasing numlber of flowers  each year.  We don't think this family intended to be greedy and selfish,  we suspect it was just thoughtlessness and hope that next  year they will' join the ranks  of those who can leave the  flowers for others to enjoy.  ���Conservationist.
