Trio to ctebate controversial Bill 33  The merits of Bill 33, the controversial labor legislation sponsored by the B.C. government,  will be the topic of a' panel  discussion at a public meeting  on Tuesday, April 30 in Gibsons Legion Hall.  Supporters of the bill have  asserted that it will bring peace  to the labor management scene  in B.C. Opponents have charged  that the bill threatens the freedom of every worker in B.C.  Speaking in support of the  bill on the panel will be Herb  Bruch, MLA, from Esquimalt,  deputy speaker of the legislature and acting National leader of the Social Credit Party.  Speaking against the bill will  be John McNevins of the B.C.  Federation of Labor, and Ernest Freer, President of IWA  1-71. Frank Fuller, will be  chairman; and impartial moderator. Y v  The meeting which starts at  7:30 p.m., is open to the public  and all interested citizens are  ��� invited to participate. The meeting was arranged by a committee from local trade unions including Local 297 Pulp and Sulphite, IWA Local 1-71, The  United Fisherman, Local 801  Canadian Union of Public Employees, and the Langdale Local  of the K:rry Workers. Mrs.  Isabel Dawson, MLA, from the  Mackenzie District arranged  for Mr. Bruch to speak.  $88,500 for Sr. Citizen homes  Hon. Isabel Dawson, reporting from Victoria said an Order-  in-Council April IS approved an  outright grant of $35,000 for the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens  Housing Society, at Sechelt, for  the construction of ten single  self-contained units. The remain--  der of construction cost is raised by local participation, of 10%  and through a loan from Central Mortgage and Housing.  Ottawa has approved a 50  year $53,500 loan.  Directors of the Sunshine  Coast Senior Citizens Housing  society are receiving congratu-  ��� lations on their fine brochure  which fully* outlines the plant  for providing homes on their  property on Ocean avenue in  Sechelt. The pictures of many  places along the coast give the  brochure a very appealing  note.        * ~,  Along with the ' brochure  which will be distributed through  the mail on the Sunshine Coast  are the donation cardsx and a  letter from the Rev. Canon Alan  D. Greene ^ho is the president  and chairman of the board of  directors. He will be returning  from England shortly and will  be interested in the response  of the citizens. Canon Greene  will head the special names  committee. Many of these  names belong; to people who  have left here or who may have  family or friends here. Already,  Canon Greene has received  many' generous gifts from  donors whom he knew in the  early days along the coast.  If you have not received one  of the brochures, you may have  a copy by notifying the assistant  secretary of the board, Mrs.  Charles Tinkley, R.R.I., Halfmoon Bay.  Power boat race likely   soccer evenf  School budget  slash ordered  }. The department of education,  in Victoria has ordered the  school board to reduce the operating section of the 1968 Budget by eighty or ninety thousand dollars. The secretary-  treasurer received a telephone  call to this effect at noon on  Wednesday, April 17 and was  requested to reply to the department on the following  . morning with details of the proposed cuts.  The secretary-treasurer informed the district superintendent and the school board of  a meeting to be held at 9 a.m.  the following morning with the  secretary-treasurer and the  superintendent of buildings and  grounds.  At this meeting, in consultation with its administrative  staff, the board reluctantly decided on cuts totalling $67,085.  This involves cutting down the  present teacher over-entitlement  by about a third also maintenance, janitorial, and grounds  staff.  This was as far as the board  felt it could go, particularly  since it had not been possible  at such short notice to discuss  the proposed cuts in detail with  those concerned, and the department of education was so  informed.  The British Columbia School  Trustees association advised us  that they are aware that many  other school districts have been  asked to reduce their budgets.  It is not possible at the  moment to predict the exact  effects of this severe cutback  in the budget on the education  program in the school district,  but: serious consideration was  givbn that cuts would not be  detrimental to the basic education of the children.  The board has not been informed what cuts, if any, the  department may have made to  the capital section of the budget, in addition to the above-  mentioned cuts in the operating  budget. The capital section is  used for site development, alterations and additions to existing buildings and the purchase  of additional equipment for the  schools.  (Readers should read the lead  editorial on Page 2. It has  something to do with school  board affairs.)  Sechelt ups taxes  Sechelt's  council has  decided  on a 2.24 mill rate increase for  this   year's   taxation.   This  will  raise the .10 mill  rate for the  last   11   years   to   a 12.24   mill  ���rate.,   uy\  ���-���;;���;      y /'���������; -    ���  Reason for so doing /was to,  aUpw an increase' of,$5000 in the  capital^exipei^itu  get. This ''"would bring capital  expenditures this year up to  $12,OO0YThe motion for increasing the" mill rate was moved  by Aid. M. Thompson and seconded by Aid. Charles Rodway.  Earlier in the meeting coun  cil was informed by the provincial surveyor of. taxes that  the Sechelt Fire Protection District levy would total $4,304.23.  This would mean a mill rate of  2.76.  Thus, Sechelt would through  .assessments, provide something  like 15 mills for municipal operations'and fife "protection, ph  top of that would be the hospital tax af slightly more than  one mill making the overall  total more than 16 mills.  Council is now preparing the  provisional budget for presentation shortly.  Hospital Week May 5  Possibility of a 25 power  bdat race_ from Sunset Beach  to Gibsons around June 23 was  brought to the attention of Gibsons and Area Chamber of Commerce at Monday night's meeting at Cedars Inn. It was revealed by Mayor Fred Feeney  in a letter from the B.C. Offshore Racing association.  The letter made the proposal  that if it could be arranged it  could -become ah' annual .event.  There would be four permanent  trophies already existing and  some lesser annual trophies  which would be provided by the  chamber, of commerce.  The craft in the race would  arrange to reach Gibsons for  a box lunch and before departing    would    stage power boat  racing in the area.  Mayor Feeney said an estimate of the value of the 25  power boats which would take  part would be in the region of  250,000 and it would be a big  day for Gibsons area if it coulfl  be arranged. The matter was  turned over to the incoming  executive.  OFF TO TALLHEO  Mr. Carl Johnson of Roberts  Creek will spend his 21st summer when he leaves shortly, at  TaHheo Camp near Bella Coola.

A 10 year battle  If anyone has the idea the present education jangle between  the public, school boards, municipal councils and the provincial  government is of fairly recent origin read the following from the  Coast News of ten years ago dated April 24, 1958:  "The following telegram was sent to Premier Bennett by the  village council: Preliminary figures issued by your department  indicate marked increase in local levy for school costs over last  year���stop���We urge that provincial government contribution be  increased to ease burden on local taxpayer.  "Council at that time also sent a letter to Tony Gargrave,  MLA, complaining that one of the costs of local school operation  is interest paid /on casual borrowing through which the school  board is forced to obtain money in lieu of payments by the provincial government."  The letter went on to say that "quite regularly these scheduled remittances are not received but the department has authorized the local school board to borrow from the bank in the meantime with the local board paying the interest charges. In effect  this means the local taxpayer is financing the government. This  may help toward that heralded debt free state, but we the local  taxpayer are carrying the load."  There does not appear to have been any significant change  made as a result of that telegram and letter. Perhaps Mr. Bennett  has considered too literally.Tennyson's lines: - r.  For nien may come and men may go  But I go on forever.  .   However he may have overlooked the fact that he has dammed the brook.  Bill of rights for squares?  In an editorial in the Stouffville, Ont., Tribune the editor  points out that no one today ever mentions majority itights. The  TV, radio and daily press is crowded with cries about minority  rights. We all stand wide-eyed at so-called civil liberties groups  who push for everything from drugs to obscene art.  These groups, which continually hit the headlines are in favor  of all the oddball items, seeming to make the rest of us look like  a group of old doddlers because we won't go along with a concept of life which contains little backbone and no sense of morality.  Others of the so-called under-privlileged groups think its fun  to picket everything from parliament,to foreign embassies under  the guise of anti-Viet Nam war, or any other excuse, to cause  trouble.  We squares are getting a bit fed up with it all, he says in  conclusion.  With this, quite a number of people will agree heartily. Under  the Bill of Rights the squares should organize and ask for equal  time on radio, TV and in the press to depict how fed up they are  of having to be entertained or educated in the minority way ,of  life. Some of it might rub off on the groups that push flor ejvrey-  thing from drugs to obscene art. Who knows? At least it is worth  a trial!  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE   YEARS   AGO  An 80 percent annual meeting  vote in favor, gave St. Mary's  Hospital society power to borrow $150,000 for financing hospital  construction.

Ferry  System, I would like to draw  the' following to your attention:  On Thursday, April ll my  wife and thousands of other  B.C. residents arrived at Horseshoe Bay between. 2 and 4 p.m.  We waited for three hours to  get a ferry to Langdale. Granted you have your problems, but  this in neither good business  nor good advertising. We need  more Ferries/ more frequently.  But get this statement: On  Sunday, April 14 we still waited  three hours to return home.  This is not good enoughs You  must be aware of the number  of cars you handle on a long  weekend, yet you allowed cars  to line up to Granthams Landing when a spare ferry was  docked at the Langdale Terminal, and not put into use until  3:30 p.m.  The ferry should be running  every hour on every weekend  from April on, and-certainly  every holiday . weekend. It  seems moist unreasonable to put  the public' to such Inconvenience  time after time. We feel as  B.C. taxpayers in two communities, in. common with a great  number of the commuters as  well as. the ferry fare, we are'  fully paying our way. It is bad  enough for people like my wife,  myself and our doggie, but  what of the many families with  young children, sitting in their  cars on the highway for hour  after hour, far away from rest  rooms, restaurants or other facilities.  : We need better operational  procedure.

Already alarming facts have  been gathered. From marine insurance underwriters who have  reported 356 vessels large and  small were damaged last year  by striking submerged objects  resulting in claims of 321,742.00.  Rescue, co-ordination centre  dispatched rescue flights or  coast guard vessels on 19 occasions to assist holed vessels.  Nine of these sunk but due to  prompt action by the centre in  only; two incidents were ithere  N drownings.  Two other lives were lost in  accidents to which the rescue  centre was-not called. One in  September when a sport fisherman's boat hit a deadhead, and  one in December when a commercial fish boat sunk from  damage to the hull!  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  A few questions on our criminal law.  Q.  A guy owes     me     some  money on va rubber cheque and  I told him if he  didn't pay I  was   going   to   the   police   and.  he says now I can get in trouble  A. He's right. You have committed the crime of extortion.  The fact that the man you have  been dealing with is also guilty  of a crime, or that he owes you  the money, is immaterial. You  may threaten to sue him in" a  civil court (and you may sue  him) but you may not threaten  him with criminal proceedings.  You may apply to have a  criminal charge laid against  him because of the cheque. Our  advice now, however is to sue  him civilly and stay away from  the police station or you may  both take a ride in the paddy  wagon together.  Q. I have heard that the  supreme court of Canada is an  appeal court only and that it  does not hear trials. How is it  that in the Trtiscott case, Trus-  cott was tried by the supreme  court and they heard evidence  and witnesses?  A. You are quite correct ���  the highest courts of each province and the supreme court  of Canada do not conduct trials  ��� they only hear appeals, that  is, arguments about points of  law. There is, however a special provision that the minister  of justice may order the supreme court of-Canada to conduct a, .'trial and this is what  happened in this unusual case.  We believe this is the only case  of its kind. It is interesting that  Hhe court agreed with the finding of guilty by the jury in the  original trial and that not one  of the nine supreme court of  Canada judges believed Trus-  cott's testimony.  Q. Can you settle a bet for  us? I say that in a criminal  case you have to plead guilty  or not guilty. The guy I'm betting with says you don't.  A. You lose. After the charge  is read out, an accused person  may: (1) Plead guilty; (2)  plead /not guilty;, (3) plead  autrefois acquit; (4) plead  autrefois convict; (5) plead pardon; (6) refuse to plead; or  (7) fail to plead.  Autrefois acquit means that  the accused has been charged  before with the same, offence  and has been acquitted. Autrefois convict means that the accused has been so charged and  been convicted. Pardon, means  that the accused has been pardoned. If the accused says  nothing, or refuses to plead, or  ..insists on . making a speech  about it at this point, or if  the charge is one that carries  a death penalty, the magistrate  will order a plea of not guilty  to be entered in the records and  the^ trial or preliminary enquiry  proceeds.  In cases of. criminal libel a  special plea that the published  statement is true and for the  public benefit is allowed. .Too  bad about your bet. We hope  a large sum isn't involved, but  if it is any consolation to you,  you may legally refuse to pay  it and your friend cannot successfully sue you.  I Heard" the Owl Call. My Namie  by Margaret Craven, published  by Clarke Irwin, reviewed by  Jules Mainil, Giibsons Public  Library.  Out of a prosaic, almost a  contrived situation, has been  created a work of art.  A young Anglican Vicar, with  an incurable disease, which he  knows nothing about but which  is known to his bishop, is sent  as a missionary to the Indians  of Kingcome, B.C. It sounds  almost artificial doesn't it? Instead of that, it is a work of  unbelievable strength and  beauty. The character of the  Coast Indian is delineated with  force and truth. Great love is  here   but  never   sentimentality.

In British  Columbia the objective is $145,-  000 for work in the province,  across Canada and throughout  the world. The demand for the  scriptures is the greatest in  history and the 1967 world distribution of over 104 million  scriptures was far short of  meeting the  demand.

Gibsons  Phone 886-7051  the poor must be tackled on  a very broad front. It i�� obvious  that the front lines are in the  communities of British Colum  bia and therefore British Columbia communities must establish mechanisms to tackle  the problems of welfare on their  doorstep.        7  Welfare problems are obviously not merely a question  of rates paid;but involve more  deeply rooted factors such as  lack of education, and lack of  job opportunity. Both of these  conditions can lead to the creation^ Of the individual that we  now know as the chronic welfare .recipient.  At the community/level public and voluntary funds - have  created a great use of services  in the social service fields.  Many of these social services  have inherent tie-in one with  the other. However, it is often i  to be, found that at the community level these social services remain -essentially, uncoordinated ,; and veryr often little  known by the community as a  whole.YY . ���'"  It would seem wise in each  community to establish councils  involving all of the social service agencies in order that programs can be reviewed as < to -  their:Ycffectiveness but also be  reviewed so 'as to avoid unnecessary and costly duplication  of effort.   .;.���'���  Community life in ,the.

Contracting  Coast Highway, ��� Gibsons  essential reason is that the cen-.  tralized approach to welfare,  while transmitting vast sums  . of money from senior levels of  government to the local comr  m unity, is also responsible for  a lack of awareness in the communities that personal involvement is the. real base upon  which a good community environment rests;    .7  Today it is simply not enough  to pay one's taxes and expect  that some unknown mechanism  of the state will have provided  air the answers in the social  service area.;The poor man obviously is the neighbor of someone and obviously the poor  man and his problems would  be better known to his community than to any centralized  apparatus that one could design. , - /'.;���.-.  There is no gopd reason why  communities cannot develop  voluntary employment agencies,  for example, in order that by  that means job opportunities  can be pooled. Who has not  in recent years, indicated/ a  complaint that it is "almost impossible at the community level  to find people,who are willing  to do odd jobsY The potential  for odd job work I would suggest is great in every community in British Columbia and yet  this potential for giving some  chronic welfare recipients some  work experience is very much'  under utilized.  It should be very evident that  the old bogey of. working for  welfare is really a question of  semantics. For example, in the^  United States welfare recipients  are often given an opportunity  on a voluntary basis to work  on state and community projects at the going rate for labor  in the area/ When some of these  programs were introduced they  were severely criticized by some  of the fussy thinkers in the professional echelons of the welfare world. The programs were  degraded by referring to them  as work for relief.>/  The professional niceties were  apparently solved when these  programs were given such ;  titles as work experience, job  opportunities, operation maintenance,- operation opportunity.  They were .given a further aura  of acceptability by tagging them  with the usual initial designations, for example/Work Experience became that famous  program called WE.  With these changes communities not only accepted these  programs but. in fact, felt that  they had come upon a new  idea. The new idea that they  had come upon was that it was  reasonable to expect that any  income should be the result of  some effort on the part of the  individual. Old fashioned as this  new idea really is, dressed up  in the jargon of the professional  it became acceptable.  In short, I think it is time  that the communities of British  Columbia examined the social  environment which. they have  created. It is time that personal  involvement replaced the mechanical creations of the State.  It is time that we realized that  social problems affect your  neighbor and mine and these  can only be solved at the community level.  Postal Paqs  The Canada Post Office announced the introduction of two  new stamp booklets to be sold  across the counter at $1 each.  The booklets will replace the  cello-paqs now in use. Available in the four and five cent  stamp denominations, the booklets will be more economical  to produce and more convenient to carry in pocket or purse.  Their introduction will come  gradually, as current supplies  of cello-paqs become exhausted.  At the same time, stamp  ���booklets priced at 25c will lose  their present format in favor  of an improved moisture resistant one. featuring a vinyl coating on appropriate surfaces. In  a few weeks time, the 25c booklets will be available only from  vending machines. This measure  is expected to reduce pressure '  on post office wicket clerks  during busy periods, and to in-,  crease sales of the one dollar  booklets.  Coast News, April 25, 1968.  ARDA assists  water users  Rehabilitation of the Southern  Okanagan Lands Irrigation District - irrigation system, being  carried out under the ARDA  program/is to be modified, so  that a year-round domestic water supply ��� might be provided  for dwellings within the district  boundaries.  The Southern Okanagan Lands  Irrigation District contains 5.-  000 acres of orchard land, and  there are within its boundaries  approximately 550 rural dwellings. The majority of these  dwell-'ngs are dependent for water supply on cisterns which  are* filled from the irrigation  system ��� an unsatisfactory arrangement, particularly, from  the health point  of view.  The overall rehabilitation project, expected to. be completed  ���by 1970,/involves the construction of nine separate irrigation  systems, drawing water from  Osoyoos Lake, the main diversion canal and possibly from  wells.     *  Implementation of this major  ARDA-assisted program, being  jointly financed by the federal  government, the B.C. government and the district itself, is  the responsibility of the B.C.  department of lands, forests  and water resources.

Drought in two of the southern  provinces affected 2 million  farmers at the close of the year  and sent thousands into cities  already unable to feed or house  their existing populations.  These conditions have aggravated what is always a difficult  period and the Unitarian Service Committee has sent additional barley to help feed hungry  children and adults.

Hi-C is a small group of  teens who gather each Sunday  night to discuss many different and sometimes controversial  topics. Any young teen over 15  interested in joining is welcome.  We offer special thanks to Mrs.  Hume, our counsellor and to  Mr. Potter, who is always helping when we need something.  Hi-c members have just returned from a conference at St.  Andrews, North Vancouver, in  which several Hi-C groups from  all over B.C. participated. At  the conference we found many  ideas from the various groups.  We also found many things in  which our own group is lacking  and we are taking steps to rectify this.  We had several church services which opener our eyes  and showed us that religion  does not have to be formal.  Special note was taken that re-  Mrs. Daisy Crowhurst, 84, one  of Giibsons respected oldtimers,  died April 22. The funeral will  take place Thursday, at 3 p.m.  from the Family Chapel of Harvey Funeral Home, ~ Gibsons,  with Rev. H. Kelly officiating.  Cremation will follow.  Mrs. Crowhurst was Gibsons  Centennial Year Queen for 1966.  She has been a resident of Gibsons since her husband's retirement in .1947.     ,.��:,-.Y  Mrs. Crowhurst has actively  participated in activities of the  Canadian Legion, Red Cross,  St. Bartholomew's Anglican  Church and the Old Age Pensioners Organization.  During both world wars she  knitted socks and sweaters, and  later sewed layettes and gowns  for the Red Cross. She was a  Past Mistress of the Ladies  Orange Benevolent Association  No. 90.  -  Mrs. Crowhurst has always  taken a keen interest in gardening and raising indoor plants.  She especially prized her African violet collection.  Mr. Crowhurst, who was a  veteran of the South African  war, died in 1950. For 25 years  he was employed as a painter  by the Vancouver School Board.  Sons and daughters are Mrs.  May Hall, Whonnock; Frank C.,  South Burnaby; Fred, Powell  River, and Albert at home. A  brother Joe is in England. There  are 18 grandchildren and 24 , missionary effort  great-grandchildren. seven adults joined in for ves-  ligion is now updated and can  be pointed toward youth. We  hope in the near future that we  can hold a churdh service that  may 'be directed to everyone.  At the conference we noted  that chaperones were not necessary, the most at any one time  was at a church service, when  pers and fellowship afterwards.  The conference was organized  by four people ^who were not  adults, but Hi-CTmembers. Friday evening we all attended' a  dance with the Poppy Family  and then had a love feast, a  communication service which  gave usr a new insfight into the  Last Supper. This was followed  by a final mugiup and 'a tearful  farewell. ~  Special thanks goes to the  U.C.W. who helped pay for our  registration and extra special  thanks to the people who billeted us. We were pleased to find  such great cooperation from the  parents who took us in, put us  up and put up with us.  In one discussion we were  asked to compare ourselves  with an orange. We will share  some of these comments in the  next column. In the meantime  ask yourself this question Why  is youth like an orange?  St. George tea  by St. Aidans  In brilliant sunshine, Friday,  April 19, St. Aidan's Anglican  Parish hall, Roberts Creek, was  the setting for a delightful tea  by the Anglican Church Women  of St. Aidan's, in honor of St.  George, the patron saint of  England. .  Mrs. W. M. Cameron, wife of  Rev. W. M. Cameron of the  United Church declared the tea  open. Mrs. Cameron was introduced by Mrs. A. M. Harper,  president of the A.C.W. who also received the guests and was  ably assisted by Mrs. J. H. Kelly, wife of the vicar of St. Aidan's the Rev. J. H. Kelly.  The hall was tastefully decorated' with the flags of St.  George and bunches of red roses, and all the guests were presented with a rose bud to wear.  On the centre of each tea table was a small white basket  holding miniature red roses and  a St. George flag.  Mrs. R. Bernard was in  charge of the tea arrangements  assisted by Mrs. J. R. Marsh,  Mrs. F. W. Downes, Mrs. L. C.  Bengough and Mrs. A Dube.  The home cooking stall was presided over by Mrs. R. Cumming  and Mrs. J. Matthews; cards  and novelties by Mrs. Ena C.  Harrold and Mrs. C. D. Clough;  and plants by Mr. L. C. Bengough and Mrs. C. Bedford.  The d<>��r prize tied with a  large bow of red and white ribbon was won by Mrs. W. E.  Oakley of Roberts Creek. Proceeds of the tea will go toward  a scholarship fund for the education of the children of clergy  serving in Uganda, the country  the A.C.W. are studying as their  Counsellor's Comments:  What's the matter with the  younger generation? Well, after  spending three days with HO  young adults, I'd'-fiitf not too  much, if they're given a challenge and a responsibility. Four  young people with the guidance  of Rev. Wes Warren planned  the program, arranged transportation, billets, food, speakers,  and a dance. I'm not saying it  went with no hitches but they  were soon corrected by the committee itself.  But you say these aren't ttyp-  ical teenagers, they are under  the influence of the church.  Maybe they are under the sponsorship of the church but only  a few of them are committed.  These are the ordinary home  grown variety of teenagers,  some of which through this conference have found it not sissy  to talk and to be involved with  religion.  Maybe as adults we should  give these kids a challenge with  responsibility instead of complaining about a communcation  gap that wouldn't exist if adults  would only care to listen and  become involved with the youth  of today. Who knows, maybe  you'll even gain something from  them.  Coast News, April 25, 1968.       5  home and workshop.  Within a month of their return to Vancouver they disposed of their house and were  back, children, dog, bag and  baggage in early October. By  Christmas they had cleared the  land, built their home and  workshop and as Hal remarked,  completed the chjimney on  Christmas eve just in time for  the old gentleman with the  whiskers.  "It's taken quite a bit of settling in," said May Aubin who  as mother, homemaker and  Hal's number one assistant she  still hopes to find a bit of time  for gardening.

The fairways are also taking  shape, With numbers six, seven  and eight almost ready for seeding. In spite of the continued  cool weather the work is proceeding on schedule.  Foundation and sub-floor of  the clubhouse are all but completed. The decision was made  by the directors to move one instead of two cottages from Port  Mellon and this is now on skids  awaiting transportation. With a  bit of refurbishing this unit will  become the groundskeeper's  quarters.  .,. Construction of a modern pro  shop to complement the clubhouse in construction and design  will be undertaken as work on  the former is a bit more advanced. Slash fires continue to  burn along that part of the  course bordering the Sunshine  Coast highway permitting a panoramic vista of fairways and  greens along that part of the  highway. Bill Sneddon, chairman of the membership comimit-  tee reports that membership is  now more than 240, heading for  the second cutoff at 250 when  cpst of memberships will be in-  ged at $300 and accompanying  annual dues increased to $100.  With warmer weather in the  offing the call has gone out to  all members to join the volunteer weekend cleanup parties.  OCEAN  HOUSING  The Japanese Fishery Agency  is experimenting with various  types of housing on the ocean  bottom in the hope of repopulat-  ing fishing grounds off the country's coasts. While the more  sophisticated experiments involve the building of concrete  .blocks in various forms, some  '"tests employ more simple devices. Old truck tires are being tried for raising abalone.  In other cases old buses have  been sunk to sea-_ottom to provide apartments for fish. The  results have been inconclusive.  Some of the buses disappeared,  apparently swept away by  strong undersea currents. Some  others have been erroded or  badly distorted. So far, metal  structures have not proved  satisfactory.  THREE IN COLLISION  Three cars were in a collision  Saturday evening at the bottom  of Granthams Hill. A truck driven by James E. Jansen of Abbot-ford, apparently was unable  to stop and collided into the rear  of a new car driven by Melvin  Hargas of Powell River which  in turn came into contact with  a car driven by Winnifred Irene  Anderson of Giibsons.

I wonder how many of us  realize the importance of this  plant? Or even realize it exists?  We probably do not. And  that is only because it is there,  doing its job well by keeping  the residents of Gold River  free from the dangers of, poorly treated sewage.  Every day we read of pollution in rivers and lakes, caused by untreated or poorly-treated sewage. Every day we read  of the danger of disease. Hepatitis is a year occurance in  some parts of B.C. Gold River  is not among them though because of its secondary sewage  treatment. It was costly ���  $250,000. The plant has a capacity for 10,000 people, so we are  safe for years to come. Maintenance costs are low, but its  value continues to rise.  The plant at present handles  90,000 gallons of sewage a day  using the extended aeration  activated sludge system. Activated sludge is nothing more  than a mixture of sewage solids  and micro-organisms.  It is formed by suspending  sewage solids and bacteria in  water containing dissolved oxygen. -They are held in suspension by a mixing action created  when compressed air is bubbled into the water. After a  period of time the solids clump,  and are separated from the water by sedimentation. The water  is then clear of offensive material. The microbes in the  sludge dissolve or digest the  sewage with the energy from  the oxygen which is derived  from the air forced into the  tank.  Viewing   the   plant,   you   will  see the huge green tank where  the   sewage   is   being   treated.  Beside the tanks is the source  of energy  needed  by  the  microbes   to   do   their   job.   The  source   is   an  air   compressor  which  forces  the   air into  the  tank, without which, these aero-   .  bic bacteria would not exist to  do their job   of eating the  organic materials in the sewage.  The treatment goes like this:  First  the   sewage  is   strained,  removing rubbish before it enters  the  aeration  tank.   There  the sewage is thoroughly mixed  with the activated sludge  containing  the   microbes.   In   fact  over a 24-hour period, the mixture   will   travel   seven   miles.  From there it flows in to the  settling tank where the  sludge  drops to the bottom leaving the  treated sewage    to    gradually  run off. The sludge is returned  to  the aeration  tank  where  it  begins  the work  again  on  the  untreated  sewage.  Once the clear sewage leaves  the settling tank it is safe to  return it to the river, but one  last process assures its safety.  The chlorination tank,, which  introduces chlorine one part per  million into the water. This will  destroy any remaining pollutants and "at the same time not  harm fish in the river.  I examined the sewage outlet at the river and we actually had some difficulty finding  it because there is no discoloration evident.  Health authorities who come  to Gold River are satisfied with  the treatment.  mot^  PANCAKE BREAKFAST  The L.A.

BUCKLEY  With the first warm days of  April, the urge is great to again  become active in gardening.  For the gardener it is an anxious period. Many tasks require careful thought before being attempted. One such job is  uncovering  roses.  If the covering is left too long,  the rose shoots will become  mildewed and damp off. If uncovered too early, they might  be frozen by late spring frosts.  This is a job that must be done  gradually, leaving some protective covering until the new  growth becomes a little hardened before full exposure to the  frost and sun is given.  If your soil is sandy it can  be dug now, but if it is heavy,  delay it for awhile. If digging  was not done in the fall, it is  better left until it is fairly dry  and not sticky like glue. Add  lots of well-decayed compost to  sandy soils, and peat moss to  clayey soil and supplement this  with a light fertilizer such as  6-9-6.  A good clean-up of the perennial border is in order right  . now. Old peony or any perennial stalks should be cut back  just below the ground level if  this was not done in the fall.  Most flowering shrubs will not  require pruning until after June.  However,   if you   have a  fall-  flowering pee gee hydrangea or  a   snowhill   hydrangea   or   any  shrubs that flower in the late  summer or fall, they should be  pruned now before growth commences:   Remove   some  of   the  old wood back to the stump or  the main stem and shorten the  younger  growths.   This   operation    ensures    getting     larger  blooms on a more symmetrical  plant.  Remember though,  that  this applies  only to late  summer  and  fall-flowering  shrubs.  Those  who like tp  get  early  sweet peas may sow the seeds  now if the land is at all workable. Here is a trick to adopt  to get real good long-stemmed  big flowers: Dig a trench eight  to twelve inches deep as though  you were planting a hedge. Fork  up   the   bottom   and   add   peat  moss.   On   top   of   this,   place  three inches    of    well-decayed  leaves,     compost     or     notted  manure and fill in the trench  with    three    inches of topsoil.  Then sow the seed;  they won't  germinate for awhile and when  they    do,     will withstand any  frost likely to occur during the  next few weeks. As the plants  grow and are staked with wires  or other supports, fill in the  trench to within two inches of  the top. This allows a shallow  groove in which to pour the  large quantities of water the  plant requires for good flower  production. The Royal Series  strain has greater heat resistance than the older Spencer  types and is best for planting  in hot areas.  Seeding to thicken the sod or  fill in bare spots should also be  done right now. Use only top  quality seed with a 60% Kentucky blue and 40% fescue or  similar mixture at three pounds  per 1000 square feet. Cover  bare spots thickly but use less  in areas where there is some  grass. Don't expect, a new  seeding to sprout instantly in  cold weather ��� weeks are needed when the soil is not much  above freezing, but it is still  good to get the seed out early.  It works nicely into the frost  pits if the soil freezes at night.  u>inmmninnrai��mmu��mnmM!nwiumnun��nimmimn..j  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone -86-2622  UP TO 3 p.m. TUESDAY  wii>ramim��nwiimmwimimuHuiiinni��Hiraiiiu(H��(uuinm  ABOVE IS a line drawing of the  comfort station to be built on  Gibsons Park land, next to the  Bank of Montreal on Marine  Drive.

To  give embroidered items a neat,  smooth appearance, always iron  embroidery on the wrong side.  Place a cotton terry cloth towel  between the embroidery and  your ironing board, which  should be welkpadded.  Colored and white cotton  sheets can be washed together  in the same machine load unless you plan to use a bleach.  You can use a mild chlorine  bleach on a load of vat-dyed  colored sheets. Always dilute  bleach in a quart of water before adding to the wash water.  Pants for women have finalr  ly won the fashion vote of approval. Dressy hostess pajamas,  sporty pants suits, and comfortable short culottes are included in the "pants for women" trend.. This summer, the  culotte dress, in cool washable  cottons, will be a favorite all-  purpose outfit.  HEALTH TIPS-  HEART STRAIN  The heart muscle and the  blood vessels of a young man  or woman can respond to a tre-  piendous range of demand.  However, because a few young  people have damage to their  hearts from congenital abnormalities or rheumatic heart disease, athletes are examined  prior to extremely strenuous  exercise.  The Canadian Medical Association reports that young people, very rareiy. suffer from  Jieart strain. It seems that the  heart muscles show some deterioration after age 30, leaving it with less reserve. What  .reserve is left seems to benefit from constant training. Thus  .the man of 65 who decides to  shovel the snow from his drive-  ,way, or push a car, or run  ,quickly for a bus, is probably  unwise. There is additional  danger to the older man if he  has had a recent respiratory  ,infection which causes added  .strain.  , The lesson to be learned  about heart strain is that the  older person should not subject  his heart to sudden and unusual strain, like wrestling or  shovelling snow. For those over  40 the C.M.A. recommends  ^gentler exercise such as walk-  4ng, playing golf, skating or  skiing.  has completed graduate work  in the fields of education, clinical psychology and social work  in that order. He holds a B.A.  degree and a B. Ed. degree  from Acadia University (Wolf-  ville, Nova Scotia) and B.S.W.  and M.S.W. degrees from the  University of British Columbia.  In addition to this training, Mr.  MacKenzie completed a year of  graduate work in vocational  guidance and clinical psychology  at the Institute of Psychology  at Ottawa university.  After graduation Mr. MacKenzie worked as a psychiatric  social worker at the Burnaby  Mental Health clinic (four  years) as a medical social  worker at CARS (one year)  and as a senior social worker  at the Children's Foundation  in Vancouver, a residential  treatment centre for emotionally disturbed children (four  years).  Mr. MacKenzie comes from  School District No. 24 (Kamloops) where for the past three  years he was employed as the  district special counsellor.  Mr. MacKenzie's- , interests  and training are chiefly in the  area of individual and family  group interviewing, group'  counselling, research and community organization.  The public is invited to hear  how our students may benefit  from these counselling services  at the next school board educational meeting on April 29th,  at 7:30 p.m. in Elphinstone  Secondary school.

Success of the Nonsuch  venture is credited by historians  with the opening of Canada's  West through the fur trade.  Mucilage employed for this  issue is the virtually invisible  material used on two previous  occasions for Canada Post Office stamps. Customary First  Day Cover service will be provided by the Postmaster, Ottawa 2, Ont.  Canada, in dark blue lettering, is printed vertically at the  extreme left of the stamp; immediately adjacent is the ar?  tist's concept of the Nonsuch  with billowing sails proceeding  in   relatively   calm   blue   seas  against a backdrop of icebergs  and the aurora borealis in which  shades of light green and rose  are predominant.  Bean exolai  Two versions of what the  three foot bean pod held up by  Craig Norris of Gibsons in a picture last week. One version  from Mrs. Lawson, Gower Point  road, maintains it is a jacarun-  da pod, a tree of the bean family grown mainly in the torrid  zone. It was also thought that  it was from these dried beans  that the maraccas originated.  A maracca is used by orehef tras  with a South American flavor in  their music.  Another version from. Vince  Bracewell claims it is a carrop  or carapa, which has much the  same type of description as the  jacarunda.
