Mrs. Alice Newton Mrs.- C.  Harbord and ��� Mrs. -Goirdan  Reeves presented St. Aidan's  Church with a ��� trained junior  choir of eleven youngsters for  the Thanksgiving servce. The  W.A. to the church, ever working, had their annual garden  r?rty at the F.W. Downs' home.  Mrs. C. Graham taught a Sunday School at East Roberts  Creek School.  The local PTA was in opera-  t:on and in September 'sent 3  teachers and 4 parents' representatives to Pender Harbor to-  attend the District 46 convention. I  Mrs. Harry Smith headed the  local Red Cross, while Mrs. Peter Edmunds was president of  the V.O.N. The VON didn't let  much grass grow under its feet,  what wrth teas, meetings, bazaars and sales.  The Canadian Legion and the  Auxiliary both were occupied  with  edihmunity  affairs;     The  hall board   met  regularly   and  ' kept.the ' ball \going/ The" OES  ' started on" 'itV" Cancer "project.  Theire was a Players' Club and  ��� a- Discussion     Group.     A high  .school  play   was   directed   and  rehearsed at Roberts Creek, and  it and two others were performed at the Hail. Ann Jervis taught  a class in dancing.  The forming of a string orchestra under the direction of Miss  Margaret Mclntyre was a boon  to the community. It not "only  afforded pleasure to those who  attended the concerts but it  brought out little used instruments and renewed an interest  in playing for their owners.  The Smith-Williamson store on  the Lower Road was closed and  ,v immed'ately snapped  up for a  place for the Drawing for Fun  Club. This club sponsored a ceramics   course,  the  site  of  the  workroom a   building   on   Dr.  Lowe's   property.  Two tons   of  clay were ordered together with  materals to construct two electric   kilns. , Renovations   were  made to the building and the  classes did not get started until  January.   The   instructor   was  Mrs. Helen Lowe, with Mrs. C.  Haslam, Mrs. R. Cumming and  Mrs. J. Ward on the executive.  There were private lessons in  oil painting  and  water  colors,  with field trips for the latter.  And then as now there were music teachers keeping the youngsters busy.  Dancing.at the Hall was quite  the usual thing on Saturday  nights.  '&  7 The regular riieetingjofv. the  Pender Harbory Hospital: Auxiliary took place on Oct. 8 with  14 members present arid one  new member welcomed.

Police,  firemen  in rescue  The fact that Jim Rodgers,;..g-  tree-topper passed a phone.num- ?  ber to two boys in the event an $  accident occurred probably sav- 3  ed his life Saturday. The; two  boys, Fred Tucker and Jeff Ni- a  all had talked with Rodgers ear-1  lier and he advised them if any-|  thing happened to him to call %  Roy   Taylor,   his   father-in-lawVjj  At about 5:30 p.m. Saturday j  the lads, watching Rodgers.'; saw J  he was in difficulty arid was |  dangling by his safety] belt 50 J  feet from the ground. They phori-f  ed the number he had given "t  them and that started a se-1  quence involving the RCMP and?  others. ���'������->  Arriving  on   the   spot  RCMP _  saw   they   would   have  to   use j  ropes to get the man down. A\  car   was   dispatched   and   had,  ropes  there  in   quick time.   In-*  the  meantime  Rodgers  on   the ^  tree   was  losing  consciousness. ��  In all three RCMP cans, an ambulance   and   the   Sechelt   fire "  truck   rushed  to  the   scene  on *  White   road   near   the   former >  Cummings property.  In   lowering   the  man   to   the *  ground  Const.   Stuart  Cameron :  who climbed the tree to put a:  harness on the man so he could-'  be lowered,  met with an accident himself. As he was climb-^  ing^ down to  get more rope a��'  ladder   slipped   and   fell   with^  him on it. Cameron suffered a^l  forehead "gashf ,- requiring ��� six.i\  'stitches; "also   bad   scrapes  to '[  h;s   cheek   and   chin.   Rodgers  unconscious    on    reaching    the  ground   was   given   mouth    to  mouth    ressitat-on    by    Const.  Cameron. Dr. Irish who had arrived  took  charge  of the man  and  sent   him   to   the  hospital  for   further  treatment  and   examination.  More close  Mondays"  Gibsons merchants* at a meeting in Coast Inn last Thursday  noon decided by a vote almost  2-1 that they would shut up  shop all day Monday from now  on. This will mean that all but  a few stores will be closed each  Monday. The Monday closing  idea grew from the need for  food stores to change their closing date from Wednesday to  Monday.  Next meeting of the merchants  will be held Tuesday Oct. 21 at  Coast Inn when discussion will  centre   on Christmas  activities.  UCW potluck  Gibsons ' United Church women will hold a Thank offering  Potluck lucheon in the church  hajli Oct. 23 at 12 oclock. The  ' speaker will be Mr. S.

CFP official outlines efforts  -. - ������ ' ��� '���-.������' ^  to control pollution at mill  : Canadian Forest Products will  spend about $250,000 in the near  future on plans to help reduce  pollution from mill waste. This  was revealed at last Thursday  night's meetiiiig in Elphinstone  school by Dr. Ralph Patterson,  an official at the Port Mellon,  mill. v  Dr. Patterson explained krat't  pulp created less water pollution and more air pollution.  Chemicals used in productdon  were recooked and as they included sulpher the problem was  one of gases and no mill has  completely overcome the effect  of such gases.  Adequate furnace capacity for  the reclamation process is a big  help so long as there is careful  operation of the furnace. Good  oxidization before , reclamation  resulted in a net gain by reducing the odor. Even if 190 percent  of the odor was removed some  people would still detect it by  smell.  Port Mellon uses" 30,000,000  gallons of water daily which eventually comes out as effluent.  Polilutilon is created by flyash,  lime, sand from chips and spills  at the mill during the process.  The major part of the content  is beaching chlordnation and the  10 percent that is lost goes into  sea water. Dissolved solids are  reduced with tlie aid of; screens  and another assist is keeping  mill spills away from the sewers;  He said there!was no health hazard -,-to hun.an7.life oftJbo7fish, v  \' As ah:asideT-^^rii^lc^ that"  ten, years ago the word pollution was difficult to find Ans. any  newspaper.: Now he added the  slory ds different. 7However the  day may come when all. heating  will be done by electricity and  .today's automobile will have to  go. Considerable money has  been spent on the subject and  over many years..  Opening the meeting to questions he    answered    those    on  smoke by explaining that black  smoke was partially the responsibility   of   the   furnaceriian. It  could be regulated, white smoke  contained more steam, he said.  Port  Mellon   water  pollution  was   about   the   same   as   anywhere else. The >B.C.  Research  council   lested   the   effluent   of  seven mills and found 35 percent  of  the   time that  baby  salmon  survived in 100 percent effluent.  He wondered why this occurred  and this part is still under examination by the council. What  they hoped  to discover is   the  reason how  the 35 percent effluent  differed from  the   other  65 percent.  One questioner claimed that  her car was covered with ash  while at Port Mellon and the  tree  branches there  were also  covered with such ash. Residents of Port Mellon of years  standing refuted this, claim and  \ said nothing of the sort had ever  been experienced.  Dr. Patterson, when the discussion got around to fish, said  that there were salmon being  caught up to 30 lbs. right off  Port Mellon Dock. Others agreed  that salmon were being caught  in that area. One questioner  ssiid that any such thing was  impossible because when he  went up there he put a bullhead  fish in a sample of Port Mellon water and it died in 15 seconds.  This comment also appeared in  Friday's Vancouver Sun in a  story about West Vancouver  School District students 11 and  12. years old attending an outdoor science school in Langdale  area. The story revealed how  they compared Roberts Creek  water with Port Mellon water.  Another questioner claiiriied  Port Mellon water was affecting  the Fraser River. This Dr. Patterson stated was an impossibility. When a mill finds a way  to reduce pollution all mills  will most certainly adopt it.  There has been -an awful lot oi  scare material about pollution.  However, he said that based on  the mill increase in production  of pulp the ariiount of pollution .  has decreased.  If production of pulp was  necessary there must be some  pollution. No pollution no pulp.  He would not care to aibolish  the cause of mill pollution.  Mention of a Japanese mill,  reputed by a cabinet minister  who visited Japan to have com-  . batted the pollution problem, Dr.  Patterson said he expressly  made a trip to that mill to,verify the report and he found the  mill management was very  much embarrassed by the minister's remarks as they had by  no means combat.ed the problem. \'\  Dr. Gerald Evans of Roberts  Creek expressed considerable interest in the pollution problem  and as well as asking numerous  questions asked for the reference works that had been printed on the subject so that he  could study them. These, Dr  Patterson said, would be made  available to hiim.  Once again iri sumation Dr.  Patterson said that with zero  pollution it would be impossible  to manufacture pulp and a plant  would have to dose down, therefore . no pollution no mill, we  have to get into an area of com-  prpmise.v T'Dr. Patterson added  that people read panicky headlines but,cannot take a reasonable emanation. ;  ���mei^e?y-7  theRichrnmit-f AntirPo^utiori:As-;  sociation on Friday, Oct. 3  w'heels were set in motion for  the establishment of a British  Cbluihbia Environmental Council.-1-  z���"''''y''      ".'������:. -;-:  The meeting was well attended by M.L.A.'s alderriieri from  Lower Mainland municipalities,  . scientists, labor unions, BC.

Dr. Ralph Patterson of Canadian Forest Products, Port Mellon, presented his views on pulp mill pollution, Thursday night in  Elphinstone school. He outlined the position in which mills found  themselves and in summarizing his remarks said that just as soon  as one mill is able to beat pollution all other mills will be "quick  to follow.  Both Dr, Patterson and Dr. Gerald Evans of Roberts Creek,  a member of the audience, implied that present circumstances  meant that no pollution meant no pulp mills.  Naturally there were memlbers of the audience who indulged  in obvious exaggerations such as there being no salmon caught in  Port Mellon waters and that one visitor's car was covered, with  flyash and the trees were also covered similarly. Both resident  and former Port Mellonites were quick to refute these remarks. Exaggerations by either side are riot the best means of dealing with  the problem as they tend to belittle the utterers.  There are other forms of pollution taking place away from  pulp mills, which are created by members of the public, which  generate heat amongst a very few people. The general garbage  situation in British Columbia can be cited as a definite case. However it can ibe surmised that with some of the pulp mill protesters  this particular issue is not serious enough to consider. Another  public form of pollution concerns smoking at public meetings ���  such as occurred at the meeting addressed by Dr. Patterson. Cig-  aret stench and butts on the floor are a form of unnecessary pollution. Casting the first stone is a democratic right one must suppose but it should be remembered that the casters are not necessarily without sin.  A verbal battle occurred over the issuance of reports concerning pulp mills. It was argued that the B.C. Research Council was  hired to do a job: Dr.-'Patterson ihapperis to be^ chairman of the  Research council. He pointed out that such reports were a basis  from which the individual mill could start work on its problem.  One can take the attitude that all mill bosses are reluctant to  take heed of the pollution problem and prefer to sweep the matter  under the rug. However the record does not show this. There are  governmental authorities alert, very much so right now, to serious  situations arid are working on them.  Dr. Patterson's background contains high academic qualifications with many years of work in pulp mills, having been part of  the Powell River setup under the Foleys where he was director of  research. He is now general manager, of the Port Mellon'inill materials division and is also chairinan of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association Pollution committee.  One can hope that fair play will prevail in arguments where  pollution is concerned.and that exaggerations will be carefully examined first. The situation is that the growth of pulp mills has created a broad pollution problem but it is definitely not the most serious pollution problem facing the citizens^of British Columbia. The  general sewage problem is one that all levels of government should  face squarely. Public health is definitely involved; Port Mellon,  while no health resort, is riot that bad.  Minority rule obvious  Campbell River municipal clerk Shelley Kriowles tells us only  85 tenant and resident electors registered before the September.3  deadline for this year's civic election in this -nunicipa_ity. He has  no \vay of knowng exactly how many people living in rented premises would have been eligible to vote, since they are requried to  have lived here for six months or more. No doubt that figure would  far exceed 85. .     ^  When one considers that -only 3,000 people in this municipality  are eligible to vote, and less than 50 percent of therii do sb. it is  rather frightening to realize that Campbell River's destiny is in  the hands of about 1,300 to 1,400 people.  Something must be done to increase this figure. And a door-to-  door enumeration seems to be the answer.  Our MLA, Dan Campbell, Minister of Municipal Affairs, can do  something about it. He should, and with a push from you, he may.  From the Campbell River Upper Islander.  CBC Times to disappear  The CBC will cease publication of its English language  weekly prograrh magazine, CBC  TIMES as of the issue covering  the program week Dec. 27 to  Jan. 2, it was announced in Toronto by E.S. Hallman, Vice-President and General Manager of  the Corporation's English Networks.      ^      7  '.-:'���-.'.'   '   "  '7  The last issue of the magazine  publ'shed in three editions fromv  Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver, will be '.mailed, to subscribers  on December 19. Subscribers  wil receive refunds under a  formula being devised.  The move, Mr. Hallman said,  was related to an overall review  of the corporation's operations  directed towards obtaining dollar savings and greater cost efficiency. CBC TIMES, since its  inception in 1948, has been one  of the Corporation's major pub-  -, lie relations arid publicity tools.  In recent years, rising production and mailing costs, plus the  easy accessibility of more comprehensive program guides,  have created an imbalance between the cost; of publishing the  magazine and Its effectiveness  in terms of audience reach.  Union strength continued to  grow in Canada in 1968 but the  forrriatiori of new Canadian unions in the public service sector  has resulted in a decrease in the  international unions' share of  the total membership. : '".  As of January 1969, union  membership in Canada stood at  2,074,000. This increase of 64,000  or'3.2 percent during 1968 is the  1 result of general growth in the  union movement and the inclusion in the survey of new unions  of government employees, mainly provincial.  This membership figure of  2,074,000 represents 26.3 percent  of Canada's labor force and 32.5  percent of non agricultural paid  workers, compared with 26.6 percent and 33.1 percent respectively in 1968.  In 1969, there were 101 international unions, 59 national unions, 196 directly chartered locals (152 with CLC; 44 with  CNTU) and 124 independent local organizations.  International union membership comprised 65.0 percent of  total union members this year,  the lowest since 1944 when the  percentage was 64.6. Although  there has been no actual decrease in the total membership  of initerriational unions, the  membership of national unions  has grown faster due to the formation of new unions in the public service sector and continued  growth in the service sector;  There appears .to be a trend  towards larger unions. In 1969,  18 unions (13 affiliated with the  CLC, 4 with the CNTU, and 1  independent) reported a membership of 30,000 and over, as  compared with 14 unions in 196S.  The five largest unions in Canada in 1968 and their membership are listed below:  1. United Steelworkers of America     (AFL���OIO/CLC)     150,000.  2. Canadian Union of public  employees   (CLC), 124,500.  3. International Union, United  Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers  of America   (CLC), 113,000.  4. Public Service Alliance of  Canada (CLC) 96,200.  5. United Brotherhood iof Carpenters and Joiners of America   (AFL   CIO/CLC, 73,500.  It is significant that two of  the new unions, in the over 30,  000 membership group are the  result of mergers. There have  been seven mergers since the  1968 statistics were compied.

My passport stamped with the  visas of the six Central American postage stainpr���size republics, I stepped aboard the Cristobal Colon bus to Oaxaca, arid  left Mexico City behind. Tower;  ing office buiidiriigs gave way to  poor suburbs gave way to scattered country villages of adobe  ��� hiits clustered tightly 4bbut dominating, elaborate cath^rais.  The southern door to the hazy  \Talley of Mexico closed as the  backside pf a snow���-anointed  peak, possibly 'Popocatepetl,  swung across our rear window.  It was a stifling, sticky, slow  trip in omV Cristobal -Colon  (Chrfstopher Columbus in English) bus! Like the dry stream  beds, our. throats were parched  by the dessicatinig Mexican sun.  In the hottest parts of the afternoon,  everyone lay still,  gasp  ing for breath and; not uttering  a >v<>rd.r And these were all Mexican passengers so it can be imagine how I, a child of the-cool,  damp Pacific Northwest felt !  In one town the concerned  conductor even inquired if -anyone needed a,.'.farhiiacia (drugstore): The worst heat was ,in  the cactus country which was  dehydrated and baked to a pale,  withered austerity.  7.The driver guided us gingerly  but unerringly through bailtoy  burros and unperiturbed cows  scattered along the narrow road.  The odd pig or coyote would  dart off to the side. Out of the  corner of my eye I caught a  pack of coyotes bent over a meal  of dead donkey, or so it appeared. Eventually we graduated to a grassy stream valley  oases which seemed luxuriant  to us passengers. They momentarily   quenched   our thirst  for  NOTICE TO ELECTORS  MUNICIPAL VOTERS' LIST  Notice is hereby given that a Court of Revision will sit )at  the (Municipal {Hall, Sechelt, on the first day of ^November  next from (the (hour of ten o'clock until the hour of (twelve  o'clock in the (morning, for the purpose of hearing and determining any application On the part of any person to Jbe jadded  to the list of Voters, and remove any names Incorrectly*  placed thereon.  t  The list of Voters as corrected and revised by the (Court; of  Revision shall be that used at the Annual Municipal ���Election  to be held in the month of December 1969.

After a short stay in Oaxaca,  where I visited the _niins of  Monte Albari arid Mitla,! I continued - s6uthw4i"d, ever corir  sciOus Of my South jAinericari  objective���-Peru. Firom Oaxaca  to Guatemala City was a punishing 26 hour ride on buses  which yielded one a~ splitting  headache, cramped legs . arid  sore eyeballs. A three hour stop  to fix a flat tire (happened far  away from any 'town's)" didn't do  anything for the patience.  As to topography, we unwound  ourselves from the Mexican Se-  erras in.o the humid plain���-the  istmo de Tehuanitepec���- where,  at its beginnings, we emerged  from the bus for supper. Twas  hot and humid, men lay about  in hammocks, crickets chirped  in unison arid the roadhouse  was dimly lit, silhouetting the  dark shapes of bus passengers  seated at tables niy first glimpse  of the real tropics^  Later, towards Tapachula in  southernmost Mexico, the veg-  atation grew thick arid lush and  buzzards flopped put of our path  from their meal of highway yic-  ijiriis. Banana trees drooped  their huge leaves.  Soon I entered my first. Central American country��� Guatemala. Wasn't difficult and they  didn't even bother to check my  bags, thpujgh they did in all the  other Central American countries. Border crossing was a  process which I foimd.''absurdly  repetitious in Central America  and made me wish they would'  all amalgamate, thereby replacing six" rummagings through  my bag with one. The number of  limes Tmust7 have written my  name, passport riuriiber and; profession is ridiculous. Made me  think of Major Major Major in  Catch 22 who, fed up withall the  official eridorsemerite on military documents^ began to;exper-'���'.  iment wtli different signatures  like Washington Irving.  I suggested:to an ;American  girl I was tra'Velling with that  I should give a different profession at 7 each border, just for;  fun. Soriie' bystanders at one  border were quite awe���inspired  when I gave my profession���  geoiogo and they thought  I said teologb (theologist). Judging by tlie look of adrriiratiori  in their eyes, I shouldn't have  corrected them.  Anyway, to return from my  digression,to Guatamala, which  we had now entered.. The first  part of the Guatamala journey  was through United Fruit type  country���bananaland, lush tropical growth, bright green colors  that screamed the fertility of  the tropical conditions��� hot sun,  plenty of water and thick volcanic soil. I didn't care for this  and 'fait more in my element  when we began to climb through  the western  belt  of  volcanoes  Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza  is expanding and improving  shopping facilties again]  Coming soon to the Plaza  A Western Drug  (Part of the Cunningham Chain)  with a full (ime qualified pharmacist in attendance  A new spacious  with ample level parking  Now more  ever your one  Shopping Centre  into the dry, cooler interior with  '���- its unusual pirie trees with foot  long needles.  What made me most uneasy  in the lowlands were the numerous police or army checking stations. The display of machine  guns was a little unfamiliar to  me. In Guatemala City all the  important building, including the  post office, had troops stationed  with rifles and niachine guns.  To put it mildly ^ one felt a tension in the atmosphere. This  was shortly after an American  ambassador was killed in tihe  city. But throughout Latin America I was to see much more  open display of weaponry by the  military and police than we are  accustomed to in Canada.  Bordering the interior highlands to the west and south,  guarding against the infringement of the tropical growth, are  an impressive belt of volcanoes  with names like Agua, Fuego,  Acatenango, Tollman and Paca-  ya��� the most active one. I was  to see some of these volcanoes  from both sides��� from the highlands viewing their accessible  backs and later from the tropical Pacific coastal plain, their  bold frontal aspects.  In Guatemala, as in all the  tropics, it is altitude that makes  the difference, not latitude as  in Canada. So if you want relatively slight vegetation and a  cpoi climate, you gp up instead  of north. So in this way in a few  hours by car you can see starting contrasts in climate and vegetation and the people that go  with these contrast's.  I spent most of the time in the  highlands, but ventured once  down to the hacienda of a young  friend and did somer horseback  riding and watched cowboys  or vaquerbs going about their  duties, such as castrating Brahma bulls. My friend offered me  some fresh bulls testicles for  lunch , holding a freshly severed  pair up to me, but I declined the  generous offer j somehow fighting back the temptatiori to try  such a rare delicacy.  Another time I went to Antiaua  Guatemala or the ancient city  of Guatemala by bus arid met a  young Gerinan education student, recently graduated, on his  holidays. He was quite artistic,  showing me sketches and paintings of Indian markets, volcanoes, Mayan villages and lakes.  Together we toured the roof-  ess cathedral a severely scarred survivor of the damaging  earthquake of 1773. Not even an  elaborate Catholic cathedral is  spared the'wrath.of the strained  earth. ;���.-  Antiqua lies at the base of the  volcano Aqua, so named for  its inactive crater full of water.  Overfowing one time, that water  washed away an earlier Spanish town nearby; It was as if  nature were angry at the intervention of the Spaniards.

How is it that my neighbor  gets just as much Unemployment Insurance benefit as I do?  He has no children and I have  five. His wife works part time,  while mine stays home to look  after our children.  A. Under the provisions of  the Unemployment Insurance  Act the dependency rate is paid  to a claimant if. he has a depend-  7ent.lt is immaterial that he may  have one, two, or more dependents. The rate is the same for  one as for five.      v  Q. Am I entitled to benefit  if-I am locked out by my employer?  A. Generally a person who has  lost This employment by reason  of a stoppage of work attributa-  be to a labor dispute is disqualified from receipt of benefit.

They riot only have donated hours of their time, but  threes of them signed a promissory note for thousands of dollars, withj'E-bsolutely lio thought  of any financial gain; as* a matter of fact, if the children had  not had the interest in the iskat-  ing, thesemen stood to lose a  great deal of money. This money, of course, was to pay for the  skates, at $43 per pair. There  was also the sound equipment,  and insurance to carry. These  skates were' so expensive due  to the fact that the wheels were  made of a special plastic, guai--  anteed notto mar any floor.  I shoud also like to state that  no one hasjreceived a cent piece  for their work. All the money taken in has been to pay for the,  skates. We have also paid $8  per hour to the school for rent  for the gym, which amounted to  approximately''-'from $200 to $250  per month. Included an this  amount was the rent of the Pender Harbour gym, where a  group from the club go every  second friday. They have to  truck all those heavy skates all  that way, but did it in order to  give the children there a chance  to enjoy the Tskating.  The response to ;,the skating  bas been weU worth all the effort these people have put into  it, and they feel that this is reward enough; so you can imagine our feelings at this time.  We have spoken to a number  of mothers who bring their  small children on Saturdays,  and they all feel the same way  we do^ that it is moist unfair.  We hope other mothers.of children who aittend our sessions will  be good enough to send in letters  of protest and, that the School  Beard will have a change of  h.art.  ���Mrs.   A.

The decorative possibilities  using light are limited only by  the imagination. You can highlight the texture of draperies or  panelling���accent the contents  of a planter box, bring subtle  attention to a painting or art  object using incandescent or  fluorescent light, and fixtures  such as adjustable 'eyeball'  types and recessed floodlights.  The student needs properly-  located light and enough of it  to create the most comfortable  situation for homework. A long  linevof built -in fluorescent over  the front of the desk will give  even distribution of light and  eliminate shadow.

Now I find  I can buy it cheaper from another company. Do I have to pay  the first company?  A. Yes - This type of oral contract is fully enforceable. Very  few contracts have to be in writing. In fact 99 percent Of contracts are simply by word of  mouth.  Q: I made an oral contract  to sell my car for $2,200. The  person has changed his mind.  Can I sue him? It will be my  word against his. How can I  prove it?  A. You should sue if you have  to. We don't think you should  assume the other person will  commit perjury. No doubt you  have good reason to think he intends to lie when he gets in  court. Many witnesses start out  with this wrong intention. Most  change their minds when they  actually stand in the witness  box and face the judge. Apparently there are no other wit-  riesses. You can prove the case  by simply telling your version  of the' events to the judge under oath. The judge will decide  who is lying and who is ���telling  the   truth.   Judges   are   pretty  good at this. ^,  Q. .1 Received A separation  agreement frorii my wife's lawyer and signed my name next  to a little r_d bit of paper. There  is nothing for me in the agreement - It is all for my wife's  benefit. I have heard that an  agreement cannot be enforced  against a person unless fie is  receiving some benefit under it.  Do I liave to do all the things  and make all the payments in  Blake C.

It looks like you are out of  Juck, but you should consult  your own lawyer. There is a  rule in contract law that a person paying under a contract  must receive consideration, that  is, some benefit from it. This  however does not apply to contracts under seal. That is why  the little red wafer is always  attached in this type of written  agreement.  Q. I signed a contract which  said "signed, sealed and delivered". It was not sealed but  I was to receive payments under it.I now, want out of the  deal, do I have to go through  with it?  A. See the last two sentences  of the preceding answer. A contract is enforceable if there is  consideration, or if it is under'  seal. In general, If there' is consideration and a seal - the seal  is an unnecessary precaution.  Similarly if there is considera-  'ton and words indica_i_ig that  the contract is to be sealed, but  there is no seal, the omission  would not be fatal to the enforcement of, the contract.  Q. I pulled my truck into a  lumber yard and loaded up  with some lumber and left a  cheque. There was nothing in  writing and I never even spoke  to the cashier or anyone. She  was busy doing something else  arid I kriew the price. No one  spoke to me either. I noAy want  to return the lumber. Do I have  to let my cheque clear?  A. Contracts are; usually either oral or in writing and in the  latter case, may or may not be  sealed depending on the pres  ence or absence of consideration. A contract .may however  also be ''understood" by the  actions of the parties. It may,  that is, be a tacit agreement.  It sounds as if this is the type  of contract you have entered  into. This js common in making  small purchases at a shop. The  customer makes his selection  and leaves the amount of the  sal-e price on the counter. You  better keep the lumber and let  your cheque be honoured.  women  BINGO  THURSDAY  OCTOBER Mr  8 p.m. Sharp  NO GAMES LESS THAN $10  JACKPOT $200  50 CALLS  DOOR PRIZE $20  Winner must be in attendance  GUOOIIS LEGION HAUL  Sunshine Coast Highway.  do much work  The Ladies Auxiliary to Pacific Command of the Royal  Canadian Legion raised $416,7fe9  for community and Legion projects.,  The efforts of the 9,745 members in 159 branches accomplished this terrific effort by  hours pf voluntary service, catering meals, running rummage  sales, birigp, .'��� bazaars, fashion  shows and raffles.   *  Of the total $387,911 was dispersed directly to every type  of deserving case.

British Columbia is  behind all other provinces, with  the exception of Newfoundland,  in granting meaningful collective bargaining to public employees he said.  Both the-B.C.

The vote to change the name  from association to unioiii climaxed a tliree-hour debate.  General Secretary John Fryer  said the name change was very  significant to the organization as  it mounts its campaign for collective bargaining rights.  Those arguing against the  the change of name said the  term union could scare off professional government employees  and that any change of name  could cause an unnecessary rift  in the organization., 7  Speakers in favor of the name  change said it was more in keeping with the organization's number one priority, the acquisition  of collective bargaining rights.'  Delegates let out, a loud cheer  when the results of the voting  was announced. ,- .  Another important,decision,affecting the future of the organization was77.be passage of a  resolution cal-ing for the restruc  turing of the union to provide  for membership in occupational groups rather than by geo-  giiaphidal locataoh.

Yet I  I think nothing is more refreshing than a large shrub iriitfull  glorious bloom alongside peren-  ial asters, mums and the gpld^  en glow of the helianthus and  rudbeckias.     7  All across Eastern Canada,  the prominent shrub right now  is the Pee Gee hydrangea , most  often fondly/called the Four Seasons shrub because of its four  changing flower colors from  white to pink to green and finally brown.  This large, vigorous plant is  seen in practically every public  park from here to Prince Edward Island. The common name  is an abbreviation of its botanical epithet-pee for paniculata  and gee for grahdiflora. Although this cult-var (variety)  was introduced many years ago;  there has been no other one  worthy of merit^introduced since  except perhaps Praecox, an ear-r  lier kind with slightly inferior  flowers.  #    ;���   * 7    *  Both of these types make excellent lawn specimans when  grown as trees. You can purchase plants already trained  with four to six-foot stems or  train them yourself by selecting  a strong growing shoot and  keeping all side shoots cut back  until the desired height of trunk  is reached. Of course a good  stake is essential for the first  few years.  One of the most little known  and yet exciting shrub for September flowers is the Kansu  buddleia a hardy strain of the  more or less tender butterfly-  bush. This particular shrub was  listed by thie Manitoba Hardy  Plant Nursery, at Dropmore,  Manatoba, as Buddleia crisp;.-  Farreri which is even hardier  and more beautiful, but very-  difficult to acquire.  ���   9-y y #      *  .-  The Kansu buddleia has violet  purple    bloom,   on    a    shapely  dwarf,   twiggy,   dense plant.  It  is much less rampant than ithe  ordinary butterfly-bush and thus s*  makes a more presentable shrub  for foundatian planting. One on  each side of the steps would be  a   good position.   What  a  nice  welcome they would be on our  return  from the  summer holidays. The plants mighf get frozen at the tips in the Winter,  but since they ,blGom on the current years wood, they will flower as prolificaily as ever.  .,   The many other butterfly-bush  selections   are   quite tender in  most parts of Canada. They can  be grown in the East in a vwarm  border close to the house if they  are cut back in the fall and cov-  eredwith straw. The old shoots  will die to the ground anyway.  Since they produce a quantity of  new shoots every year, which  will each terminate in a long  spiky bloom, cutting them back  in the fall will not destroy future  flowers. You can get itheise  plants from nurseries in colors  varying from deep j deep purple  to redish-purple, lilac, white and  cream.  7 * *. ���     *   7-  Another shrub that can greet  you on your return from your  summer vacation is the five-  stamen tamarix that blooms  through August until the end of  September. No plant surely can  be as graceful as the tamarix.  Even when not in flower its  ferny, feathery foliage adds  beauty to the shrub border all  summer. If planted as a specimen plant with a white background, '-.���"' it will dominate the  whole garden. The cultivar Pink  Cascade is the one usually sold  in preference to the species; it  has long sprays of light rosy  pink flowers..  The summer sweet bush is  another very unusual shrub seldom seen in Canadian gardens. It  has plumy, fluffy, white flowers  on a neat, pale, green-leaved .  bush. The cultivar -Rosea' or  Rose sweetpepper bush has pink  flowered spikes -of bloom on  dwarf shrubs not more than  three or four feet high. The flowers are very sweetly scented  and the foliage is deep green  when the plant is growing in a  damp environment in semi-  shade. In the full sun it is apt  to become yellowish. I suggest  giving either of. these plants lots  of humus in the form of peat  moss and watering them well  during dry periods.  About  the end of the month  strap-shaped petals of the witch  hazel   start to unfold,   but  its  flowers ; won't  really begin   to  present a very beautiful picture  until the October leaf-fall- This/  is a shriib that should be planted  in  most  gardens  where  space  7  can be found for it. It is an unforgettable sight with its bright  golden flowers glowing brilliant-.-,  ly in the late Autumn sunshine,  when leaves are falling gently  from   every   surrounding   tree.  For the milder parts of British Coumbia, the Niagara region  and points hear Windsor and  Chatham, Ontario good fall flowr  ering shrubs are Abelia grand-  iflora, Caryopteris clandonensis,  many selections of Ceanothus,  the turquoise fruited, Clerodend-  roh trichotomum, Escallonia in  many charming rose and white  cultivars, Fuchsia megallanica  and F. Riccartohi, Hisbiscus  syriacus, and Vitx agnus-castus  and its new white cultivar  'White Spire.'  L:A.; Royal Canadian Legion Branch 109.
