Array Provincial Library,  Victoria,  B.  C. -  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone  Volume 21Y  Number 11, March 14. 1968.  10c per copy  v  council proposal  outlined to Kiwanis club  Explanation of the proposed  community council which is to  cover the Sunshine Coast Re-  J gibhal7 District was presented  last Thursday night at a meeting of the Kiwanis cjub of Giibsons.-;:; ,--;  Mr, B. C. MacKenzie, special  counsellor at Elphinstone school  and Mike Blaney, supporters of  the formation of the ccfuncil outlined what the council -would  mean,in the area.  The community council would  be a co-ordinating body with no  powers other than that delegated to it by its member groups.  It would bring together diverse  groups to make possible a look  at the total community, its  needs and its resurces. It would  also provide a more intelligent  method of setting up priorities  in filling community needs. It  would also eliminate duplication of services and free energy sources for tackling problems which are not being handled adequately and act as a  useful bridge between citizens  and elected officials. It would  also be of use to elected offi:  cias to supply important information to elected bodies and  help out in decisions.  It is the intention of supporters 7otf the council plan to approach the Regional District  board for its support. It asked  for Kiwanis club support. This  would have to await the meetingyot Kiwanis trustees before  a decision can be made.  Mr;Y MacKenzie discussed a  pb^t^whi(^{^uld;bear qn^the  control of -s_U2h^sfrpia_:: moves as  the^hippies aind he suggested  that perhaps they could be directed; by obtaining informed  views vwhich could set boundaries and limits on such. He referred to people who when desiring to get a change in laws set  themselves out to break such  laws. Such problems, could be  studied and the result presented to higher authorities.  The proposed council would  have as its chairman a director  from the Regional district board  There would be directors ap-  . pointed by the community council covering the various aspects  of social life and these directors would set up a cross-communication which would be the  sounding board for the organization.  Once organized, experts could  be called in to make a co-ordin-,  ated   approach   to   a   study  in  depth of the community and in-.  terpret its findings and evaluate projects. It was anticipated  that the study would be subsidized through -government  sources.  The background for this community council starts with the  school board educational meeting on drop-outs which was attended by about 125 persons on  the evening of Nov. 27. At this  meeting a committee of 28 was  formed and later a smaller subcommittee to further the discussion in a general way. As a  result of a discussion at a  school board meeting with Mr.  Henry Rosenthal of UBC who  is working on foundation project in the fields of rural education, the drop-out sub-committee veered into the larger concept of the community, council.  Sechelt to use Regional  g inspector  Sechelt's municipal council  has decided to use Mr. F. A.  Reyfourn, the Regional District  building inspector as Sechelt's  (building inspector.  Arrangements have been  made with the Regional board  on the basis of a fee rate of $100  for the rest of this year for 10  houses and a fee of $10 per  house over the $100 for further  new construction. A bylaw will  be prepared to cover this.  Mrs. Lee Redman, former  May Day celebration chairman  wrote council in which she offered constructive c"r i t i cism  such as making the May Queen  the chief event and omit the use  of concession games and noise  until the May Queen observances were completed. She stated  she was hot alone in her opinion and suggested that council  should be interested in seeing  that children were featured in  the yMay. Day celebratio��Y She  addedii that if: she .could heiprthe  May Day committee she would  be quite willing. Council decided a copy of the letter would be  sent to Ted Farewell of the Sechelt Lions club.  A letter from Mrs. Gladys  Clarke regarding the 30 mph  speed tin-it on East Porpoise  Bay road which she maintained was a menace to children  playing in that area will be dic-  cussed with the RCMP. Only  recently it was decided with  RCMP consent that the general  speed limit in the entire village  area be 30 mph.  Mr. Laurence Evans complain  ed to council by letter that a  highway culvert overflow was  flooding his property and he  could get- rib satisfaction from  the roads department. A copy  of his letter will go to roads department officials.  Council gave an OK to Ted  Osborne's request for the enlargement of. his water lot on  Porpoise Bay in vicinity of the  wharf. As the village had a reserve for lands and recreation  purposes in the area he had to  obtain permission through council. It was reported that he  plans a marina in the area. The,  department of lands will be informed council has no objection  to the enlargement of the lease.  A letter frorii a -cable TV organization seeking a peiTOit to  explore ;the area to see -what  commercial aspect it had fori it  drew the question from Councillor Morgan Thompson as to why  it ;did7not come bfefbre-: cbtmcil.;  Clerk Ted Rayner ' explained  that as Gibsons council had applied to legal counsel to see just  where council stood in the matter, the letter had been held in  abeyance until the matter had  been clarified toy 'Gibsons council. Chairman William Swain  added that it was as much his  fault as it was the clerk's that  it was not placed before council on arrival. The point which  has to be decided is whether  a license for such work is.necessary.

If Squamish area cannot obtain a sewer system it will have  to go without a provincial Union  Board of Health, office. The problem came before last week's  meeting of Coast-'Garibaldi Union Board of Health, attended by  Gibsons and Sechelt representatives along with others from  Powell River to Squamish.  No permit can be issued for  a septic tank setup there owing  to the present regulations which  will, not allow septic tank construction owing to the water  conditions not being suitable for  septic tank and tile field disposal- ,  Squamish has applied for provincial government financing  without success. Mr. W. Kennedy, Squamish, said Squamish  had gone to Victoria and out-  1'ned -ts program which entails  the sale of bonds in which Squamish hopes to be able to get  some government assistance}  The board of health decided to  continue its support of the Squamish effort to get a sewer system.  fflmMW\mnHW\_iMranmwrattiMni!immii��i��iii��nunr.  MORE NEW HOMES  R. A. Whiting of Giibsons obtained a building permit through  council for construction of a  fourplex dwelling on Trueman  road opposite Gibsons United  Church. The cost will be $25,000.  M. and K. R. Bjornson were  granted a permit for a $12,000  home to be built on Stewart  road. ....;���������.  Gibsons   municipal   clerk   attended as alternate representative replacing    Councillor    Ken  Goddard for that meeting. Charles Gooding, Sunshine. Coast Regional District clerk asked for  representation on the board for  the   Regional   District.   It   was  argued that with other Regional  Districts cropping up it will be  necessary  to  include  them   in  the Union Board of Health. As  a result the Sunshine Coast and  Powell River Regional districts  will have representatives on the  board. It was also decided that  alternative   delegates   from all  organizations would have voting  powers when they attend meetings as atemates.  Subject to discussions with  school principals and .counsellors, the health department  must consider education in the  field of drug taking. Councillor  Adele deLange of Sechelt, asked the board to investigate a  report that the Indian band on  Sechelt reserve were planning  a trailer court on beach property. She questioned the sanitation  effects. Dr. P. J. Reynolds,  health unit secretary, said the  board had no jurisdiction over  Indian -lands but that he would  take up the matter with other  authorities.  A family life education program will be carried out in  schools for grade eight pupils  with the possibility of grade seven being considered. Today's  youngsters were getting considerable information: on sex, alcoholism, V.D. and drug addiction through the various news  media.  With, the resumption of the  Ferry service, the road from  Langdale to Pender Harbour is  once more a hustling highway  and prominent in the coastal  traffic is the movement of 12  Sechelt Motor Transport buses  with their Sunshine Coast banner emblazoned prominently on  the side of each vehicle.  According to George Hopkins,  operating manager of SMT,.the  loss of revenue from more than  2,200 passengers and freight  from the tie up will be heavy.  Fortunately through , the foresight of the operating manager,  five of the buses held up on the  other side were put to good1 use  on short run private charter.  When questioned on the feasibility of a strike shuffle service  between Sechelt and Gibsons to  link with water taxi service from  Horseshoe Bay, Mr. Hopkins  stated the SMT schedule was  not set up for local operation  and to attempt to link up with  the' indeterminate arrivals and  departures of the water taxis  would be at best a helter-skelter  arrangement with no proper  schedule to work to.  Now. that  the  regular  ferry  yiiuiu(mimiiu\iirainMraittuiRiiiuinnuniuiiu\iiraramiiiuu  FERRY WORKERS TO MEET  B.C.

He was the driver of  that initial scheduled run.  A look over the company's  operating log from 1964 to 1967  discloses the following figures:  Total number of miles, 1,231,678  charter miles, 544,018; charter  miles in U.S.A., 304,679; chartered trips 601; chartered trips  to U.S.A., 173; passengers car-  riel 270,928; charter passengers  19,232.  It is particularly interesting to  note the scope and extent of the  SMT charter business with trips  ranging from Vancouver to Alaska, Montreal, New York, Miami and the Mexico border. Major cities travelled to by the  SMT were Fairbanks, Prince  Rupert, Prince George, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa,  New York, Chicago, St. Paul,  Minneapolis, Bismark, Seattle,  Portland, Sacramento, San Fran  Cisco, Los Angeles, San Diego,  Tijuana, Reno, Las Vegas, Salt  Lake City, Grand Canyon, Phoenix, Cheyenne, Laramie, Nogal-  es, El Paso, San Antonio, Huston, Baton Rouge, New Orleans,  Tallahassee, St. Petersburg, Miami and Key West.  Four of the company's drivers, Gordon Foster, Don Ros-  ner, Al Williams and Dick Gray  are on charter trips practically  75% of their time. George Hopkins recalls Jim Davidson piloted the first SMT bus on charter  to the States in 1063.

This was revealed at last  Thursday night's dinner meeting of the club at Cedars Inn  when under the chairmanship  of Ron McPhedran, . William  Laing reported on the senior  citizen committee efforts to  date.  Ray Chamberlin stressed that  the club should have some project behind the annual boat  raffle which the club holds and  asked the club to consider  something along this line to  back up the sale of tickets. ;  Continued efforts are under  way to assist the Scout movement in the area and a report  to this effect was made stressing some possible financial  aid.  The club's $200 bursary for  use in some other educational  field than university was announced and applications from  students will be received up to  April 1.  DENTIST  BURGLARIZED  Sometime during Wednesday  night of last week the dentist  office at Sunnycrest Plaza was  broken into and cash to the  amount of $245 plus $173 in  cheques was reported stolen.  As far as can be ascertained  nothing else was taken. RCMP  are investigating. 2     Coast News, March, 14, 1968.  Iff!  A wav of life  Serving the Mt.

Y  'uuuuiuiHWiuiM^  The college plebiscite  The result of the Thursday plebiscite on the regional college  will please some people and leave others with a feeling of disappointment; ; ���  Reasons for the defeat are many. The chief could-foe hasty preparation coupled ^^^^ climate abetted by misconceptions. Even this could be modified based on the. results froih  the other three school districts which were more than 60 percent in  favor. There were also complaints of the lack of-information in  those three school .districts but it was not apparently judged so  by the 60 or more percent in favor.   >.  ��� The^Co^st News has no intention of retreating from its editorial stand Of last week ��� that we can afford to pay for the college.  What would be an interesting; action and an illuminating sidelight  on how' some people think, wotild be to ask them for some reaction  on the fact that for every dollar spent on alcoholic beverages in  this area the provincial and federal governments take about 70  cents of that dollar in the form of taxation. There would not appear" to be any noticeable, demurring. Perhaps the answer would  toe ��� so what! 7 .  .:... Do not get the idea the Coast News has any fight with the liquor interests or the average imbiber. The intention of this editorial is to point out how money is used and could be used. When  one stops to consider that close to one million dollars will be absorbed in the use of various alcoholic beverages during 1968 in this  Sunshine Coast territory, through two liquor stores and liquor consuming outlets we have, give further consideration to the fact  that about $700,000 of that will ibe a tax.   ,  ��� -Census figures reveal that there are approximately 2626 individuals on the Sunshine Coast up to the age of 19 and in the 20 to  54 class there are 2807. In the 55 and over class there are 1775. ,  Therefore the Coast News draws to the attention of the middle-  age group something which has apparently been overlooked:  In the August 10 issue of last year the Coast News printed a  school board advertisement with a black heading reading Voters'  List. This advertisement explained that registered owners and.  qualified persons other than property owners who are tenants in  occupation" of real property within the school district, if not on the  Voters' List could.have their names included. This also applies to  corporations. It was also explained that no names would be carried forward without a renewed application.  If one desired to make a wild guess at the number of such  electors who are on the Voters' List please do not go beyand 20  covering Gibsons, Sechelt and the school district lists. If one would  like to check with Mrs. Joan Rigby, the returning officer as to the  number that should have been on the Voters' List she would no  doubt suggest quite a large number. Her.-telephone was buzzing  all day Thursday with tenant elector inquiries from people not ori  the list.  Perhaps the result of Thursday's plebiscite, vote will .awaken  them to the fact they have the right to vojte providing they follow  required procedure ��� get their names on the list. Any moral to  be taken on this we leave to tenant electors who have quite a number of children attending our schools.  ��� * ml  The mainland shore" of West  Howe Sound welcomes ..the visitor at night with a galaiyYof  colbredV lights outlining- homes  from   Georgia  View  at   its  en-  cabin, just as the mode is today, but only a 9-HP gasoline  engine. 7 The operation of :this  cruiser was, in the hands of  the son,  William  Collister, and  trance, to     Langdale     Heights  ^he didn't have to use a press-  above the ferry terminal.' Not  long ago, along this 7 shore a  few oil lamps dimly pierced the  blanket of the dark above the  three,"unlit landings. That gives  rise to the query as to what  brought here the owners of  these homes, with money in  their pockets and clothes on  their backs.-  The first white pioneers who  bit out their homesites 'from  the fores't are now dead, but  from the Gibsons Story, they  sought a.kind of freedom, and  a way of life, and while none  of them, became even well-to-  do in this \yorld's goods, they  led a full and colorful life in  surroundings of their own makr  ��� ing. ���'*:::-'���  \n the last 20 years the writer had some part in establishing their successors in this  Land��of Goshen, .and has listened to these newcomers of all  walks of life, from the newest  of New Canadians to distinguished American doctors and  professors. .  *        #       *  The common factor extracted  from their vastly interesting  stories is they too sought a  way of life, in a land, to them,  beyond the sunset, where one  doesn't have to wear a, collar,  literally or metaphorically.  That leads to the personal question, What brought. you here.  I came in by the back door,  on special invitation, and this  is the story.  My fathei was Hudson's Bay  Company manager in Vancouver in the early '90's, and later  HBC manager in Victoria. When  we lived in the Westend of Vancouver, round the corner from  us, near where that lofty blue  tower now rises Jon Robson  Street, lived the Loutit family,  Mr. Loutit and my parents all  being from the Orkney Islands.  When we moved to Victoria,  across the Gorge Road from  us lived the Colliste'rs. Mr. Collister was manager of the Albion Iron Works there and was  eventually moved to its Vancouver plant. I was away from  British Columbia for 10 years,  and when I got back to Vancouver late in 1914, that city  had enjoyed a wonderful boom,  and this new wealth brought  the first motor boats. Mr. Collister owned one of them, the  Elaolite, a, 35-fpoter, which had  comfortable accommodation for  eight with galley,     toilet    and  Point of law  gang to raise his crew, for  there were plenty of young fellows who were only too glad  to help out with the care and  maintenance.  * * ���  At that time the Vancouver  Yacht Club had its pavilion  and floats on the Stanley Park  shore of Coal Harbor, and its  sail and motor craft were pul-'  led up for the winter in cradles  along the shore. Everybody  knew everybody in Vancouver  in those days and many of the  leading business men, doctors  and lawyers were yachtsmen.  As a newly fledged and newly arrived lawyer, I marvelled  at what happened to these dignified   seh:ors   when   they   got  into working clothes  and  "suffered a sea change, into some-  . thing rich and strange," for'in  those   days   it was very   much  a case of do it yourself. When  the    days    began to lengthen,  Sunday    saw    this    Vancouver  yachting fraternity busy getting  their respective craft ready for  the   24th   of   May,   the   official  opening     day     of  the  season.  Elaolite had her  spring makeup applied by as deft a set of  face-lifters   as   there  was,   but,  as the lowest of the lower deck,  I drew the dirty but necessary  job of copper-painting her bottom. ��� _..  Elaolite, resplendent alow and  aloft  set  out  with  a  full crew  for  Howe   Sound   for   the   1915  Victoria Day week-end. We anchored for the night just around  Hood Point, in the bay where  the Rotary   Club   now has   its  cottages. For me, it was a return to Paradise, to smell again  the   haunting   perfume,  of   the  British Columbia spring, and to  pick up a tommy cod at every  throw   of   the  line,   after   long  years, in exile.  *.'..*���    *  The" next day we cruised leisurely  up one   side   and  down  the   other   of   the   Sound,   and  in   the  afternoon  we   came   to  a land where it seemed always  to be  afternoon.  We  had been  talking about boyhood days  in  Victoria, where the 24th of May  heralded the start of the swimming  season' in     the     Gorge.  Somebody said, "What's wrong  with this place?", so we shoved the Elaolite's bow up on a  silver  beach  and  in  we went,  and found that we could forget  Victoria  and her  Gorge.  The   only   sign   of  habitation  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Cemetery board reports burial costs for burying  indigents are out of line. It  costs $15 to dig the grave which  added to other costs leaves $5  as. the undertaker's fee which  is regarded as too little.  St. Mary's Hospital at Pender Harbor has announced it  will increase its daily rate to  $6 owing to increased costs  William Faulkner and Lloyd  Davis were named chairman  and secretary of the Pender  Harbor section of the Sechelt  Peninsula   Board   of  Trade.  George Hill was elected president of the newly formed Gibsons Liberal association with  E. Bingley as secretary-treasurer, T. R. Godfrey, T. Davey,  A. C. Hill, L. Speck, C. Gray,  H. Reichelt and L.

Dick McKibbin retired as  chairman of Gibsons Library  board.  Sechelt Rod and Gun members have installed a new trap  for   firing   clay  pigeons.  Forty-five members attended  the annual Legion meeting at  Sechelt when    Charles    Brook-  man  was  elected president.

ELECTORAL   MAPS  A free nine-page folder listing  the new federal electoral maps  of Canada is now available from  the map distribution* office of  the department of energy, mines  and resources, 615 Booth Street,  Ottawa.  The new maps have been pub-  ished by the department's surveys and mapping branch under  authority of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, passed in 1964, and show the new  boundary lines that have been  drawn as a result of the population shifts revealed by the 1961  census.  With one exception all the  maps listed may be purchased  for 50 cents each. The exception  is a large map of Canada, rough .  ly three-and-a-half feet by five  feet, which shows all the federal electoral districts on the one  sheet. This is priced at $1.00.  Cheques or money orders for  these maps, the folder states,  should be made payable to the  Receiver General of Canada.  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  The stormy seas of matrimony     have     cast  up  on  our  shores several enquiries concerning what, if anything, an  unhappy spouse can sue for in  a divorce action, in addition to  the divorce itself.  There are several remedies  that can be sued for together  ��� in suitable cases. This  article will assume that the  suits described are contested  and successful. A wife usually  sues for a divorce, interim alimony, permanent alimony, security for costs, custody of  children and the costs of the  action against the  husband.  If the wife applies at the  start of the action, she may be  awarded a sum by way of interim alimony, interim, till the  trial, to maintain herself and  any children. Permanent alimony will usually be provided  for at the trial. The wife may  apply at the outset for an order forcing the husband tp pay  into court a sum of money to  secure the costs of the law, suit.  This would be about $375 plus  . about $50 for expenses paid for  such items as court registry  fees, court recorder, process  servers, etc. plus the fees Of  the private investigators. The  $375 which she is (with the  other items) entitled to collect  from her husband should be  enough to cover her lawyer's  fees. ;  The husband usually sues for  a   divorce  and  costs  and only  occasionally, damages against  the other man. The male defendant would normally be ordered to pay the costs ��� as  above, but only if the husband  can prove the male defendant  knew the wife to be a married  woman at the time of the commission of the act of adultery.  Damages in any sum of money  (according to^ the value of the  wife as such) may be awarded  the husband against the male  defendant in cases where there  has been an enticement and  alienation of affections. The  wife usually obtains custody of  the children even though she is  the guilty party (unless she is  leading a grossly immoral life)  and the husband usually receives visiting privileges.  If the plaintiff has himself  or herself been guilty of adultery, he or she must also claim  that the judge exercise his discretion i.e. not refuse the divorce for that reason, as the  judge has the power to do. The  plaintiff's adultery need not be  disclosed in any of the documents served on the defendants,  nor need it be disclosed in the  plaintiff's evidence at the trial  but 'full particulars must-be set  out in a statement placed in a  sealed envelope which is for  the judge's eyes alone. At the  trial the statement will be read  by the judge who may, depending on the circumstances, cause  it to be delivered to the opposite party, or ��� as is more  usual ��� simply exercise his  d'scretion , and grant the divorce.  on the half-_niie of beach was  a small mail-order cottage apparently deserted, of which  more later.      Y  Some time after that, my father, then HBC land oemmis-  sioner (Chief Factor) in Winnipeg visited Vancouver on  business, and we went to visit  the Loutits who were still living in the same house on Robson Street. What impressed  me, and I was impressionable,  were the four beautiful daugh-'  ters of the house,, and that one  and all treated me with such  marked respect that I was certain that there was something  behind it all. I later discovered  that their father had dared  them to try any monkey business on Jim Thomson's son,  who was just back from Edinburgh.  Summer came, and brought  an invitation from Mrs. Loutit  \o a young Orkneyman and  myself to come to camp for a  weekend. Memories of our  iCamp at Esquimalt told me to  bring a nose-bag, and my Orkney friend, who worked in a  wholesale  hardware  warehouse  By ERIC THOMSON  brought  a   seven-foot  cross-cut  saw.  We boarded the Marine Express, a small, rough and ready  freighter which served the  West Howe  Sound  settlements.  The Hopkins Landing wharf  was out of commission, so the  captain of the Marine Express  just shoved her bow up on the  beach, and we got ashore, exactly where the Elaolite had  berthed for our swim. The little house was the original Hopkins place, a simple mail-order  cabin hung on posts, with one  big room above, kitchen behind, verandah all round, and  a number of bunks down below. Mrs. Loutit had a large  family, but was always short  of stove wood and water.  My friend and I got that saw  moving and that evening we  bucked and split enough wood  to keep ;our hostess going for  the summer. This lady, born  in Iceland, was a keen fisher-  woman, so very early next  morning, I took her out fishing  in the camp punt, arid off  Soames Point to her delight  (Continued on Page. 7)  N.

The problem came up at  Tuesday night's council meeting last week when Chairman  Fred Feeney drew council's attention to a Kitimat story in  the Vancouver press which revealed that the council there  had., taken action against  premises which they classified  as nuisances and ordered them  repaired within six months  after April 15.  The buildings are the Curling  Club, the YMCA and the Kildala  /elementary school. The first  two are owned by the Aluminum Co. of Canada, which built  Kitimat.  Council took action under section 873 of the Municipal Act,  which deals with the removal of  erections and things dangerous  to public safety or health.  Damaged roof beams were  discovered in the three structures earlier this winter after  heavy snowfalls. The municipal  , building inspection department  ordered the curling rink and the  YMCA closed for several days  until the roof snow was removed.  School ~ authorities    failed to  notify   the   municipality   of the  damaged  beam,   one of  seven  /supporting the    school    lunch-  ' room roof, until nine days after  the discovery.  Gibsons council has battled  with the problem of building  nuisances for years without  reaching any clear cut solution  as to what action it can take.  Council after discussion decided to seek information from its  solicitor to see just where it  stood under section 873 of the  Municipal act in connection  with actions against such nuisances.

D. R. McLean Coast News, March 4, 1968.  to  Editor: Help! Please, help  our children on the North : React!  This new by-pass is a potential child-killer. Our little ones  have a rough road to travel  as it is! They must travel in  blinding dust in the dry months  and in mud for the remainder  of the school year.  ���;������ .';  To further complicate matters  the government has seen fit tor  snake across the North Rd.,  not once, but twice with a 60  m.p.h. by-pass. We, the property owners of the North Rd.  were under the impression that  this by-pass was to make travel  to and from school safer for  the school children. As it stands  now, the children above Chamberlin have three highways to  negotiate twice a day, and the  remainder from lower North  Cemetery, and Reid Roads now  have two in place of the one  now existing.  Just what is the purpose of  this by-pass? Are our children's  lives not to be considered? If  the government can provide  over passes at the same time  as the by-pass, very good, but  failing this we believe the bypass should go through the uninhabited area close to the  power-line and make everyone  happy. ��� Mrs. A.

These badges were presented at  the Baden Powell service on Feb. 25 by Father MacDonald and  Mr. Jack Warn.  2 major projects for  school board program  Will there be a building program and what will it contain?  If we are going to retain a  reasonable teacher-pupil ratio,  and if we are going to be rid  of expensive temporary accommodation there should be a  referendum placed before the  ratepayers. There will be two  major projects in the program:  1. additions to S'echelt Elementary  2. proyison for - secondary  school expansion  These are being studied very  carefully in an attempt to find  the best solutions.  Why do we need more secondary school accommodations?  Where will this be provided,  Gibsons   or   Sechelt?  When present construction is  completed at Elphinstone, this  school will have a capacity of  625 students. In September  1971 we will have 850.  The problem of location of  new secondary classrooms is a  tough one. It would help if we  could look several years into  the future and know where future population expansion- will  take place. But we do riot have  a crystal ball. There should be  two   main   considerations:  What is best educationally?  What is economically reasonable?  We have two main alternatives -r add the classrooms at  Elphinstone or start a new  school in another location. Arguments pro and con for each  alternative readily suggest  themselves. When the time  comes��� very soon now ��� for  a decision, the board will try  to make clear all the reasons  for its decisions. When the time  comes to seek ratepayer approval v/e hope that the school  district will be united in support  of the proposed program.  There has been some talk of  Photostats  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  and other required papers  can be copied by photostat  Coast News  Ph. 886-2622  a  secondary school at Sechelt.  Is this a likely move?  Such a step has many advantages and is well worth  careful consideration. If this  turns out to be the board's decision, a school at Sechelt  might start out as a senior secondary ��� Grades 11 and 12.  Still later on' it might, if school  population warrants it, become  a complete (Grades 8 - 12)  school.  If our school population was  growing very fast ��� which it  is not ��� the decision would be  easier. For the next few years,  however, our senior students  (Grades 11 and 12) must be  kept together. Under modern  conditions and curricula it takes  300 senior students to offer a  reasonably complete program.  By 1971 we expect this number,  based on present population.  What students would go to  a senior secondary school at  Sechelt?  All of our Grade 11 and 12  students, including, perhaps,  those from Pender Harbour.  - What effect'?' would; a' senior  school, centrally located at Sechelt have on transportation  costs?  It would tend to reduce transportation costs as buses would  carry junior students one way  and the same buses would return with senior students.  Is Pender Harbour too far  away to transport senior students?  To Elphinstone, yeis. To Sechelt, perhaps not. It is a long  ride over the present highway,  even to Sechelt. What we have  to consider is this ��� would the  educational advantage to Pender Harbour seniors offset the  inconvenience created by fairly long rides on a school bus?  Is the small secondary school  at a disadvantage?  Definitely yes. Pender Harbour students cannot hope to  have offered to them the same  courses and programs available  in a larger school.  Trip for Louise  Eighty students from B.C.  secondary schools will take part  in free-wheeling discussion sessions at the University of Victoria, April 19 and 20. Louise  Johnston will attend from Elphinstone Secondary School.  The second annual Humanities and Science Symposium,  sponsored by the university and  IBM Corporation of Canada,  will offer a platform to 28 leading, students from senior.grades  throughout the province.  ^All those completing grade 11  pr 12 in B.C. schools were invited through their principals  to submit a paper on a sulbject  of their choice, or examples of  their work in the arts.

T. Mattick of Clo-  verdale who were visiting Mr.  and Mrs. B. Firth over the  weekend.  Mrs. Doris Richards of Vancouver spent Wednesday and  Thursday visiting with her sister Mrs. Irene Shaw and her  husband Loren, before going on  to Gibsons where she spent a  few more day_ visiting friends.  Rev. Barry Jenks of St. Hilda's has been in Vancouver attending a conference for the  past few days. In his absense,  Prof. R. Mugford of the Theological College at U.B.C. conducted the services in the Anglican church'in Sechelt. Prof.  Mugford and Mr. and Mrs. D.  Hayward were luncheon guests  at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Stan Bryant, before attending  the 3 o'clock service at the  Church of His Presence at Redrooffs.  Well attended was the ibaby  shower in honor of two month  old Timothy David Jenks, son  of Rev. and Mrs. Barry Jenks of  Sechelt, which was held at the  home of Mrs. Stan Bryant with  Mrs. Eva Hayward as co-hostess. The gifts were presented  in a blue and white decorated  bassinet and Mrs. Jenks was  presented with a pink camelia  corsage grown by Mr.- D. Hayward. Among the many present were Mrs. M.

Some food tips  While prices of other meats  may strengthen in March, say  CDA economists, beef prices  are easing down. Large stocks  have also weakened the potato  market.  PORK ��� Increases in output  over year-ago levels are slowly declining. Prices in the immediate future are expected to  remain  steady.  BEEF ��� Supplies of higher  ���quality are relatively more plentiful compared with year-ago  levels. Prices are easing downward.  BROILER CHICKEN ��� Prices may rise slightly because of  reduced supplies.  BROILER TURKEY ��� Prices will be steady to higher, later, in the month.  EGGS ��� Prices will be steady to slightly higher.  APPLES ��� Retail outlets are  well supplied with dessert varieties. Cold storage stocks are  about depleted and Controlled  Atmosphere storage apples are  becoming available. Prices are  steady.  POTATOES ��� Market is  weaker due to pressure from  - large North American stocks.  ONIONS ��� There is a fair  volume of domestic and export  shipments and markets are  steady.  Zone meeting  Some 47 members of the Elphinstone Peninsula zone of the  Royal Canadian Legion met at  Roberts Creek Legion hall on  March 2 and discussed resolutions concerning veterans and  their dependents to be placed  before the Dominion convention  in Penticton in May.  Geoff Thatcher will be sent  as a delegate representing the  Roberts Creek branch.  On March 30 members of Gibsons branch and auxiliary will  visit Roberts Creek branch for  a social evening. The Roberts  Creek auxiliary has made final  arrangements for its April 5  bazaar and have also set the  date 'for a rummage sale on  May 24. At the March 8 branch  meeting Carl Law became a  member by transfer from Port  Alice.  To imp.oyephone facilities  The B.C. Telephone company  will spend  nearly $130,000 this-  year   for   additional   facilities  serving   customers   in   the   Sechelt and Gibsons areas.  E. R. Boyce, manager of the  company's North Shore district,  said the expenditures are part  of the company's $67 million  capital construction program  for 1988 and are included in his  district's $4 million share of  this. v  Largest item for the Sechelt-  Gibsons area is $53,000 to cover  placing of two miles of aerial  cable north of the Sechelt telephone office to Mason road on  the Coast Highway, and to place  four miles of cable south of the  office to the Davis Bay and Selma Park areas.  An additional $19,000 will be  spent for seven miles of cable  to Sandy Hook, Tillicum Bay  and Tuwanek on the Sechelt Inlet road where customers now  are connected through grounded wire facilities. The installation will provide for growth as  well as improvement of transmission.  ,  Cable installations through the  Gibsons     telephone     exchange  Skate club  changes name  Because of expansion into  Port Mellon and Pender Harbour, the Gibsons and Area.  Skate club has changed its  name to the Sunshine Coast  Skate club. While the club has  grown in area,,it unfortunately  has not expanded very much in  membership.  In an effort to encourage  more volunteer help/ as well as  provide more opportunities for  everyone to skate, the last Tuesday of each month has been set  aside for adults.  Only persons who are 21  years and over will be permitted to skate. This, is not intended as discrimination against  teenagers but as an /invitation  to the many adults who, for one  reason or another, have not attended other sessions.  Tuesday, March 26 is the first  adult night and skating will begin at 8:30 in Elphinstone gym.  Show your support.with a good  turnout and take the opportunity to discuss working with the  club in the future.  area will require $14,000 and an  additional $10,000 will be spent  to install equipment creating  five more circuits on long distance transmission facilities between Gibsons and Vancouver.  Mr. Boyce said additional  sums will be spent for customer  equipment and customer connection in the area, which now  has about 3,000 telephones connected.  At Pender Harbour $14,000 is  being spent this year to place  telephone cable in the Hotel  Lake and Oyster Bay areas. An  additional $48,000 will be spent  for 10 miles of cable from Pender Harbour to Ruby Lake to  serve the area between Kleindale and Ruby Lake.  ��� BANK OF ������'���  BRITISH COLUMBIA  REGINALD B.

Transient fad or long-lasting  influence? This is the question  arising in the minds of women  everywhere, says Style, as they  hear about the new mid-calf  length being shown in couture  salons or worn in the streets  of London and by socialites to  New York parties.  The recent Paris collections  did nothing to solve the current hemline dilemma. In fact  they added fuel to the controversy by showing everything���  the mini, the midi, long and  just plain short skirts.  The mini ��� six to eight inches above the knee ��� hasn't  completely relinquished its fashion   grip.   At   the   other   ex  treme are the midi ��� mid-  calf ��� and the maxi ��� below  the curve of the calf. In between is "just plain short,"  which means one or two inches  above the knee or just brushing  the kneecap.  With Paris no longer providing strong fashion leadership,  there are reports that New  York manufacturers have sewn  ribbons on the hemlines of fall  dresses but left them hanging  on' the racks, waiting for last-  minute directions about skirt  lengths.  Canadian manufacturers are  playing the fashion game just  as cautiously, says Style. Rather than showing a barrage of  midis with shoot-from-the-hips  force, they have produced a few  skirt and dress items with mid-  calf hemlines to test the range  and wind velocity before firing  their fashion salvo.

(Continued from Page 2)  she caught helf a dozen large  cut-throat trout. We never had  that luck again.  In the forenoon-, I solved the  water problem. There was no  esplanade as now along~\. thle  beach, just bush, but I found  a damp place in from the shore  and started to dig. Even in  those days I had to make a  considerable hole to allow me  to get down below. When I  got about four feet down, I  dug into an underground stream  which filled the hole with ice-  cold water so quickly that I  was unable to shout for help,  or get put. However, I managed, and thereafter sank a big  barrel in the hole and added  a few buckets of pebbles from  the beach, and that took care  of. the water situation.  The Marine Express called in  for us in the evening, and when  my friend and I, standing on  the beach at its prow, made  our manners to Mrs. Louitt, she  said: "You boys had better  just put your blankets in the  bunk house, and come up here  any time, you want." We both  must have stood in a trance  as she held open for us the  doors of Paradise, for neither  of us made a move. "I mean  it," she added, and we obeyed  her then and thereafter. From  then on I had a dream of living some day on that pleasant  shore, but a war, marriage,  and a long hard start from  scratch were to intervene, but  we made it.  Visits to Gambier  Visits to Gambier Island are  being instituted by Rev. H. Kelly of St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church. A visit will Ibe made  on, the third Thursday of each  month in the Veterans Hall.  Beginning on Sunday, March  31 and every fifth Sunday of a  month a joint Anglican-United  Church service will be held in  Roberts Creek United Church.  The service will start at 3 p.m.  and Rev. W. M. Cameron will  preach the sermon.  MORE PORK AVAILABLE  With more pigs on his farm  this spring than he has had in  a decade, the Canadian farmer  faces a year when his U.S.  counterpart, with eight times  more production potential, is  likely also to market a record  high quantity of pork. Therefore prices will likely be lower  than last year's in both countries.  ROSE BUSH FLOW  The annuai flow of rose  bushes from the United States  is flooding through ports of  entry, from British Columbia to  the Maritimes. It is estimated  that some $6 million worth of  rose bushes are brought in  from the U.S., mainly in the  first three months of each year.  COVERED WAY POSSIBLE  Gibsons council has learned  that its request for a covered  way from the ferry ticket office to the ramp to board the  ferry will depend on when funds  are available for such construction.  Growth in the numbers of  Canadians enrolling in vocational and technical institutes, city  and community colleges, government retraining programs  and adult education courses in  the 1960's has been truly astounding, according to the Bank  of Montreal in its February  Business Review, just issued.  Equally amazing, and Tto  many dismaying, has been the  phenomenal increase in' the  cost of providing these facilities, the B of M states.  It notes that: current total  educational costs are estimated at $4.5 billion, an increase  of 97 percent in the last five  years. ,  Education is the main item  in provincial budgets, averaging  ing some 30 percent of expenditures. In some provinces, the  percentage is higher, an example being Ontario with over  40 percent. In the current fiscal year, the provincial governments will have contributed  an estimated $2.1 billion, almost half the total spent on  education.  Elementary and secondary  schooling receive about 65 percent of the expenditures, a drop  from 74 percent five years ago,  and the percentage is likely to  continue to fall. But the costs  of post-secondary education  have been rising very rapidly,  tripling from $384 million to  $1,158 million in five years.  In the 1950's, attention was  centred at the elementary level  as millions of post-war youngsters trooped off to class, happily unaware of the king-size  headaches they were creating  for school administrators desperately trying to find sufficient seating space, let alone  enough teachers and textbooks.  Present and projected lower  birth rates indicate growth in  elementary school enrolment  should continue to slacken,  with the possibility of fewer elementary pupils in 1975 than at  present. While demand for pre  grade-one class facilities is expected to increase into the  1970's, secondary school enrolment has begun to show more  moderate   growth.  Heavy demand for skilled  personnel and expanded training opportunities are providing  strong incentives for young people to stay in school; at the  same time, increased incomes  and greater . scholarship and  loan assistance have put higher  education within the reach of  many more students.  In 1952,5 percent of the 18-  24 age group took further  studies; today, 15 percent do  .'and, by 1972, an estimated 20  percent will continue their education. In the last ten years,  full-time university enrolment  has grown from less than 90 -  000 to 268,000, with 70 perceni  more expected by 1972.  Technical institute attendance  has grown even faster, from  14,000 five years ago to the  present 43,000 and expected at  least to have doubled by. 1972.  While of vital importance to  Canada's economic growth, the  increase in the number of university -graduates (from 23,000  in 1962 to 44,000 in 1967) is only  one of the outstanding educational developments of the  1960's; equally significant is the  great expansion of ��� educational  opportunities for those who  have left the formal school system. '  While educational costs are  high, "the economic growth of  the nation largely depends upon  the amount of time, effort and  money we are willing to commit to an educational system  within which all citizens have  a chance to learn in order 'o  earn a better standard of living," the Bank of Montreal  states.

By   JACK  DAVIS,  M.P.  (Coast Capilano)  Few people are happy aibout  the way we will be choosing our  next prime minister. They do  not like the fact that the choice  will !be made by 2,472 Liberal  delegates at a special convention to be held, in Ottawa April  4-6.  But what is the alternative?  Should every Canadian voter  have a say in this matter? Or,  should we go to the other extreme? Should we leave the  choice to our members of parliament as they do in the United  Kingdom?  Personally, I prefer the British system. The M.P.s know the  leadership, candidates personally. They know what their policies are. And they have seen  them perform in the house of  commons. So why not leave the  choice of a leader to the members of parliament in Ottawa?  Some people might say that  this is not a deihocratic way of  doing things. But they are  wrong. Our M.P.s are elected  'by the people themselves. And  they are close to the scene. Everyone has a voice in their election and they in turn have to  work with the new leader in any  case.

What about going directly to the people? They at. least  make a stab/ at doing this in the  United States.        ,  There one at least gets the  impression of spontaneity. A  small group of men and women  get behind a candidate, their  goal being to convince millions  of other Americans that their  man is the man for the presidency.  His name in entered, along  with those of other party candidates, in a dozen or more "primaries." And these primary elections, in as many as 20 states,  can be either open or closed.  In the open primaries anyone  off the street can vote for a  new leader. In the closed primaries, on the other hand, only  registered members of the Republican or Democratic party  can take part in the balloting.  The primaries in these states  accomplish two things. They  show whether a given candidate7  has popular appeal. And they  select roughly 500 delegates to  go to the final leadership convention.  Five hundred, in other words,  are elected directly or indirectly  by the general public. But there  is another 1,000 to account for.  They come from the states  which do not hold presidential  primaries. Their delegates, instead, are chosen by local conventions in which the party organization is all powerful. In  many states the governor himself controls his party's delegation and bargains using it as a  bloc at the final convention itself.  We, in Canada, have developed a more rational system. As  in the United Kingdom our elected representatives, the M.P.s  and senators, have a vote. But  these are outnumbered, more  than 7 to 1, by party delegates  who are elected in separate  meetings in every one of our  264 ridings across Canada.  Obviously, the United Kingdom, or parliaimentary way, of  choosing a leader is the cheapest. It does noticrdst very much.  The U.S. approach, on the other  hand, which involved a good  deal of campaigning at the grass  roots level, runs into tens of  millions of dollars. We, in Canada, meanwhie, seem to have  chosen a course mid way between the two. And, while the  proceedings leading up to the  Liberal leadership convention in  April will involve the public to  some extent, they won't cost  anything like as much as the  election of a presidential candidate in the U.S.  i  Drop-out talk  Mr. B. C. MacKenzie, school  district counsellor, was the,  speaker at Roberts Creek school  Tuesday at the Parents' Auxiliary meeting. His sulbjec t,'  School Drop-outs, provided the  17 members present with an in^  teresting and perhaps entirely  new concept of the problem.  No child, Mr. MacKenzie stated, is ever born emotionally  disturbed. Behavior is learned.  A four-year old asks his mother.  400 questions daily, he said, and  later, at kindergarten, he must  un-learn some of the answers.  It is possible that the little 5-  year-old, starting off to kinderr  garten, hopes and expects o  find his daddy there, since daddy leaves the house every morning. He remains under the feminine influence for his first ten  years or so and believes the balance of power is in favor of his  mother.  Conflict is preferable to dull  harmony. In any case, dropouts do not accommodate to our  system. Following Mr. MacKenzie's talk, refreshments were  served and the subject was further discussed over the tea cups  SOCCER  Division 4  Madeira Park 1, 297 2.

For the past few weeks  drop-in visitors to the Sechelt  Indian Reserve Community hall  have observed a class of students learning chart plotting  and other navigation skills,  under the guidance of experienced ship masters.  The group is part of two  adult education classes that  have been in progress since  early February. The first, recently completed, ran for two  and one half weeks, five hours  a day. It was taught by Captain Arthur Davidson of Victoria. The second class, now  in progress, is being taught by  Malcolm Mactavish, Roberts  Creek Elementary school principal and master mariner.
