Array Provtaeial library f  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 13, March 28, 1968.  10c per copy  School board secretary and assistant ous  community  meeting draws 125  Let's  T  More than 125 persons heard  Jack Davis, M.P., talk on How  to Make Our Community a Better Place in Which to Live and  also heard answers to questions  from the floor and from a panel  of eight persons.  The meeting called..''by the  Community Resources committee of the Sunshine.;Coast Arts  Council also was informed that  the next meeting, sometime in  April, would tackle the motivation of human resources.  H. Clyne Headley was chairman.  On stage was a panel including Mr. Davis, Claire Donley,'  Pender Harbor student; Dave  Hill, union local 297 president;  Gordon E. Johnson, school district superintendent; Budd MacKenzie, special school counsellor; Steve McCourt, student;  Ken Sneddon, SFU; Frank  West, Regional District chairman and E. Sherman, Port  Mellon Pulp  mill manager.  Mr. Davis said he approaches sub j ect with trepidation  but he was pleased to be. addressing the largest audience  he had ever appeared before  in- Gibsons. There was approximately 125 persons present.  People underestimate ��� their  capabilities, he said, and assume that there is a higher  knowledge available elsewhere  in the,form of experts.7He personally did not think/this should  bej the case r and maintained  that the answers would be found  within ourselves.  Self help is a large factor in  problems and he cited as an  example the Gaspe, Quebec experience where a society was  organized away from the old  seignoral system to a system  set up to train the young for  other projects than farming or  fishing. Provincial and federal  ���help stepped in and speakers  were obtained to visit the area  for meetings with public participation. It was, better to  spend $15,000 per family in the  area than to allow them to continue to be under social welfare type of life indefinitely,  he said.  Discussahg pulblic laceptahee  of voting responsibilities he  pointed out that 75% voted in  federal elections, 50% in provincial and 20% in community  affairs. In North Vancouver's  last municipal -vote only 15%  turned out. This revealed that  the public does not focus on  subjects at lower governmental  levels.  The Sunshine; Coast could do  the same jobs as are done in  other areas but there will have  to be a change of attitude in  the area and in Victoria. He  explained that on federal projects it was a case of one-third  responsibility at the federal,  provincial and local levels.  Agriculture was not our biggest  industry yet provincial aid problems are based on agriculture.  The Sunshine Coast could be  moving from fishing and logging to tourism and servicing.  It is one of, the most favored  areas m.tiiey world and there  must be forward looking 7ahead  Gibsons Municipal Council has  proclaimed next week as Cleanup and Paint-up week. Under  the signature. of Fred Feeney  the proclamation asks residents  of the village to clear unsightly objects from' their property  and to clean up and paint up  generally.  The Municipal dump will be  opened for the  disposal of un  wanted heavy goods and with  co-operation a considerable effort could result.  ���Kelly the cleanup man is  rcad'y to offer what help he can  during cleanup week.and those  living close toy old folk unable  to help themselves are urged  to give them a hand and see  what can be done to make the  village of Gibsons that much  cleaner.  atement reveals  nternal strife  Home gets loan  A CMHC 50-year Io��,n totalling  $53,500 has been granted the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens  Housing project, according to  information received Tuesday  by the  Coast News from Jack  Davis, M.P., in Ottawa.

As regards the  guaranteed income Mr. Davis  was of the opinion the $3,000  figure was unrealistic because  it would not mean the same  across Canada. He preferred  an income that would be based  on production.  QUESTIONS ASKED WERE:  For Ken Sneddon: What  would you think of a motto  for life:  Work or starve.  Is -the Community Arts council trying to take over functions that should be exercised  by local, provincial or national  governments?

Anyone interested in museums is invited to  attend.  The meeting will concern itself mainly with the operation  of the museum on the lower  floor of the Municipal Hall in  Gibsdns during the coming visitor season. Those persons desiring to take part in preserving and recording the story of  the Elphinstone area should  find this meeting interesting.

There will  be a nomination and election of  officers.^  it  proximately $1,000,000 to be put  before the ratepayers probably  in September.  He explained he was reporting on the decision made to date  by.the school board based on a  three year projection of requirements. The pulblic, he said,  would toe kept fully informed  over the next few months of developments within the referendum. He added that he was  quite willing to attend any coffee party where the public wanted to know more about the problems of the referendum.  Trustees all over the province  did not like having to go to the  public for money to build  schools but they must be realistic and do what they have to do.  he said. It was the intention of  the board not to put anything in  construction of schools which  will not toe approved of or not  shareable with the education  department.  In view of circumstances surrounding the construction of  schools involving approvals and  the time it takes to get actual  construction started it would not  be possible to get into any new  construction under the proposed  referendum before September of  1970.  There is an existing shortage  of 17 classrooms and this does  not take in any possible increase in school population.  Present plans do not call for  destruction of the old, elementary school as those robms .will  be needed. The referendum  would cover additions /to, the  Gibsons and Sechelt elementary  schools and a senior high school  at Sechelt. The alternative  would be to increase the size of  Elphinstone secondary school  which now has a total of 625  pupils.  The present situation is that  Gitosoris requires 11 more school  rooms, Sechelt five and'Madeira  Park one making a'total bif 17.  Sechelt had the problem of  integrating the Indian school  population. Langdale's grade 7  would be moved to Gibsons. The  Indian integration would toe  completed toy Septemtoer next  year. By 1970 he expected Elphinstone school could be housing 850 pupils.  Many ���questions /were asked,  and some sought to know whether architect fees could not be  reduced by having sets of standard plans for use throughout  the province, why component  parts could not be used gener-,  ally, toetter utilization of present  ���buildings with split shifts and  why did we not have grade 13.  To this Mr. Potter replied that  there were better facilities available close at. hand for such  students without having grade  13 at Elphinstone school.  Mr. Johnson added that if the  ratepayers wanted to foot the  toil! the area could have grade  13 in the school system. An increased science laboratory was  urged' and Mr. Potter explained  that science classes can be  maintained with present equipment but that individual experiments were not possible. However some of the class was writing towards scholarships.  Jack of all trades wanted  Wanted: Dog catcher, wharfinger, parking patrolman and a  municipal beach and park attendant for the municipality of  Gibsons. This type of an advertisement may yet appear but in  the meantime the village council is giving consideration to the  hiring of such an individual.  The matter came up at the  last meeting of council and was  left in abeyance for further consideration. Now that summer  months are approaching and the  influx of. summer/residents anticipated, such things as parking  time limits, park caretaking and  some semblance of control at  dock floats will be necessary.  Councillor Ken Goddard informed council that the B.C. Offshore Racing association is considering a power boat race from  Giibsons to Vancouver. It could  also include a demonstration  and   display  sometime   during  the summer months.  Members of council also supported a move to get a later  ferry service. Under the new  schedule the latest ferry leaving Horseshoe Bay leaves at  9:15 p.m. Also it is the desire  of council to have an hourly service running from May 24.  Permits for new homes were  granted to Hector Lepage for  a $15,000 home on Burns road  and for a pre-fab home for G.  Hauka at Gower Point road at  the corner turning opposite  Prowse road. This is to be a pre  falb type home and council decided to have a look into the  pre-fafo situation to see how  they'comply with building specifications.  Council also learned that as  far as its liability was concerned at the airport for the landing of planes that planes landed  on  airports at their own  risk.  Peter Wilson, secretary-  treasurer of the school board  resigned Saturday. Previously  the assistant secretary-treasurer's position had been ordered  vacated, by Ray Chagiberlin at  April 30.  The school board after deliberation decided' to., dispense  with the services- of Mr. Chamberlin on a specified date. Mr.  Wilson apparently fired him' on  the spot. This the board did not  like. As a result it received the  resignation of Mr. Wilson.  At a Sunday morning meeting  "with      press      representatives,  Chairman Don Douglas read the  following statement:  I've called this meeting this  morning to inform you of the  facts of Mr. Wilson's resignation  and the release of Mr. Cham-  erlin. The board has for some  time felt that Mr. Chamberlin  is not capable of assuming the  work load involved in this office and for this reason advised  the secretary-treasurer to ask  for Mr. Chamberlin's resignation  effective April 30th. If Mr. Wilson could not obtain this resignation he was instructed to give  Mr. Chamiberlin notice of termination of employment as of  April 30. Mr. Wilson, however,  chose to ignore the board's instructions and released Mr.  Chamiberlin immediately.  This, has proved very embarrassing to the board but clearly  .demonstrates the animosity between these two men. At a  -tooard- meeting \<Saturday ���night ���'���  Mr. Wilson; our secretary-treasurer, tendered his resignation  and it was accepted. Although  this is a regrettable situation the  board has no desire to further  aggravate this, incident and it is  our intention to pay Mr. Chamberlin until the end of April.  The letter of resignation to the '  school board reads:  I wish to resign from the position of secretary-treasurer of  School District No. 46, (Sechelt)  In order to give the board  time to find a suitable successor, which will probably take  at least a couple of months by  the time the board has advertised, scrutinized the appications  and short-listed the best, interviewed and perhaps had some-  applicants tested by management consultants, reached a decision and notified the chosen  applicant, had him give his  present employers at least a  month's notice, and then had  him work with me for at least a  week or two, I would suggest  that the resignation take effect  at the end of May or June.  This will also give me time to  find another position and would  enable my son to finish his  grade one year at Gibsons,  where he is in Mrs. Kwasney's  ITA class, so that one or other  of the albove dates 'would be  quite convenient for me, too.  My resignation will, of course  be made public immediately and  this might ease the pressures  being put upon the fooard.  Coming at the end of May or  June, my successor will have  the relatively quiet summer  months to become accustomed  to the district before being  pitchforked into the hurly-burly  of a new school year. In the  meantime, I can finish off the  work of this school year.  This is not a sudden decision  on my part. I have felt for some  time that such a step would probably   prove   to   be  necessary  and that it is probably ultimately best for all concerned.  ���Youra truly,  Peter C. Wilson,  Secretary-Treasurer  Mr. Wilsons statement:  I have offered my resignation  to the Board of School Trustees  of  School District No.  46  (Sechelt) and it has been accepted,  effective   the   end   of  May   or  June, 1968.  This is not a sudden decision  on my part. I have felt for some  time that such a step ���prould  probalbly prove to be necessary.  A small but highly vocal minority of persons in this district  has had the trustees under con  siderable presscure for moritha  and the Board has withstood  that pressure to the best of it��  atoility. It was, however, obvious that there was a breaking  point and a point beyond which  it was no longer worth it for me  to continue to try to serve the  cause of education in this dis  trict.  I seriously douibt that my re_  ignation will satisfy the wolves.  On the contrary, I strongly suspect that they will be encouraged  to  increase  the  pressure ,  on trustees to further retrench  their efforts to improve the educational system and that thes  will seek the removal of other  progressive persons working for  this district. In fact, I can only  forsee a bleak prospect ahead  for all concerned if the people  of this area do not get behind  the; trustees   and'  their   professional staff, both teaching and  non-teaching, and give them the  support they need. In this connection, I have every sympathy  with  the  trustees  in  the  hard  and thankless,'joib that they have  undertaken.   I   wish  them   and  their staff every success.  ���"'" ���F6r"'my"part, I have tried for  the past three and a half years  to do whatever I sincerely believed was in the best interests  of this  school district,   regardless of the personal consequences to me. I am proud of the contributions I have made and have  no regrets. For the final two or  three months of my work here,  I   shall  continue  to serve   the  district to the best of my ability.  ���Peter C. Wilson,  Secretary -treasurer.  Victims should  be protected  The forgotten people in Can  ada today are the victims oi  crime. Even the criminal is given better treatment by the state  . Jack Davis, M.P., said during  his address Friday night at Elphinstone school.  The criminal is properly housed, given legal advice and helped to get back into society. The  victim of a crime is, on the  other hand, often ignored. He is  left to his own devices. Society,  in a sense, turns its back on  him and goes on its merry way.  It is basic to Canadian law  that a person is deemed to be  innocent until he is proven guilty, But the guilty today are often painted as being innocent of  the crime which they have in  fact committed. They are given the 'benefit of the doubt.  They are helped by various  agencies. They are housed free  of charge. And they are retrained, often at public expense.  We should set up a publicly  administered system for the  compensation of victims- of  crime. Ottawa must take the  lead. But the provinces, also,  should get into the act.  Compensation should toe paid  regardless of the victim's income.  Compensation should be paid  regardless of whether criminal  charges have been laid or not.  Compensation should be paid  regardless of the nature or 'results of the crime.  Compensation should be paid  whether a civil action has been  successful in the courts or not. 2     Coast News, March 28, 1968.  Indians will be consulted - - Laing  Serving the Mt.

British Columbia's Social Credit government has been given a  solar plexus blow in the forced resignation of Hon. Phil Gaglardi  as minister of highways and it will take superhuman efforts to recoup its position as a dynamic force in the political world.  Mr. Gaglardi in his latest press release quoting Bob Reeds,  described as a veteran newsman wrote: "This vicious campaigning by the political parties, the news media and some radio stations  is to get Gaglardi and Bennett and defeat the. government. The tragedy is that if this happens a socialist type of government could  toe elected which would be the ruination of the province of British  Columfoia. Certainly it is about time the true facts were stated and  made known."  Mr. Gaglardi had plenty of time in the legislature to state the  facts. As regards election of a socialistic government the Social  Credit government presided over toy Mr. Bennett is not in any  sense the type of government that smells any sweeter than what  Mr. Gaglardi calls a socialistic government. Saskatchewan survived 16 years of so-called socialistic government. No 'bonfires were  lit when it was defeated. Mr. Gaglardi's activities, right or wrong,  have knocked the skids out from under the Socred government and  opened the door for what can -become a vicious fight in the next  election.  Breaking new ground  The minister of education for British Columbia has presented a  new setup for school board financing. It is a toill which is breaking  new ground as far as financing at school (board level is concerned.  Based on information from the daily press and a press release  from the B.C. School Trustees Association this particular piece of  legislation contains problems which require amplification. However one aspect of it is good and that is one which incorporates  kindergartens in the school system. This is long overdue.  There is one phase of the new legislation which most school  trustees will not like. Perhaps the words of Frank Beinder, School  Trustee Association president in his press release, will explain  what it is. He says: "We cannot agree with the principle that levels  of operational1 expenditure deemed as necessary toy school boards  must be decided toy referendum. For many years, school trustees  have felt that the referendum requirement, even in capital construction, is not valid because it places the educational needs of  children in an area in which decisions are made for reasons totally  unrelated to education. The extension of this principle to operating  requirements will foe totally unacceptable."  He is speaking here of operational expenses. It also applies to  the larger field of general referenda which usually ends up in the  hands of minority voters. It is true all voters have the right to cast  their ballot but if they are to leave voting to those opposed it is  time the referenda procedure was overhauled, for the benefit of  the school children involved. They, having no vote, are at the  mercy of minorities.  In the municipal field we have the minister of municipal affairs amending the Municipal Act so that it will not toe necessary  for municipalities to seek money bylaw votes for waterworks and  sewerage systems. At least one government department has recognized the danger in minority rule. This school district and many  others know how damaging the effect of a defeated referendum  can be.

Kelly, CBC-TV Features Department, Box 500, Terminal  A, Toronto 1,  Ont.  Indian Affairs Minister Arthur Laing has announced that  the Indian people will be consulted about the changes they  want in the Indian act. The  minister circulated to members  of parliament a departmental  booklet designed to help individual Indians and families to  discuss questions which arise  in amending the Act.  Each Band is asked to select  one of their number to be their  spokesman. A series of technical papers will be forwarded to  these spokesmen before they  meet with department officials  at various locations across the  country, in late April or early  May.  The minister said he had discussed the Indian act with his  cabinet colleagues and the government has agreed to support  an act which will allow Indian-  bands to choose from a number  of options, the form of self-  government which will suit  them best.  The booklet reviews the provisions of the act which it says  sets out the rules under which  individual Indians, the Band  Councils and government itself  must work on the things they  do together on reserves.  The Indians are asked if they  want the act to allow Bands  who wish to do so to form Reserve Municipalities which  would provide all the services  other municipal governments  operate. If the Indians agree,  the act will also permit bands  to organize corporations to  manage band assets.  Among the questions which  the spokesmen will discuss is  one which asks should the  children of unmarried Indian  mothers take their mother's  status regardless of who the  father might be? Under the  present act, if the father of an  illegitimate child is not an Indian, the child's status can be  protested and it might be the  only member of a family with-  ARDA in Alberta  Agreement between the federal government and the government of Alberta covering approval of, a comprehensive rural  development plan for Census  Division 14 (Edson - Hinton -  Whitecourt area) of Alberta  was recently signed by federal  forestry and rural development  minister Maurice Sauve and  Alberta agriculture minister H.

This ARDA undertaking, although comprehensive in scope,  is referred to as a mini-plan  because\of the comparatively  small ^area involved and the  limited financial commitment in  comparison with the costs of  comprehensive develop ment  plans'" initiated in special rural  development areas under the  Fund for Rural Economic Development Act.

Don't be a jackrabbit. When  pulling away from a stop, accelerate g-r-a-d-u-a-1-l-y, or you  will overfeed your carburetor  and waste gasoline.  Look ahead���far ahead. You  can thus pace yourself to minimize jam-ups, slow traffic, and  red lights.  Don't exceed the speed limit.

The area to be developed  encompasses 11,760 sq. miles  (with a population of nearly  20,000), bounded on the west by  Jasper National Park, in the  north chiefly by the Athabasca  River, and by the Pembina River to the east;  Local participation and involvement in project initiation  and implementation was begun  in the area three years ago.  The plan provides for: land development (clearing); assistance  in forest development programs  associated with recreation and  tourism; opportunity for academic upgrading, vocational  training, job corps training; assistance , with water conservation measures; research into  socio-economic problems and  physical projects such as water  resources, access roads and  wildlife  development.  ii       '    ''   ' - ;  your car!  drastically at high speeds.

Point of law  Q. 1. I am living common  law with a man but am married to another man. I use the  name of my common law husband but all my documents and  records have my real name on  them. Is it against the law for  me to use the name I'm using?  Q. 2. I was in trouble with  the police once years ago and  for business reasons I dropped  my real name. I'm using an  alias. Can I do this?  Q. 3. How does a person  legally change his name?  A. There is no such thing in  B.C- as a common law marriage. It is illegal to use a  name other than one's own. A  name may be changed legally  by going through the process  specified in the B.C. Change  of Name Act.  In some provinces it appears  to be legal to use any name.  The B.C. Change of Name Act  states however that no person  shall change his name except  as under that act or by legal  process such as marriage, divorce, adoption, etc. This implies that everyone has a name.  This in turn is provided for  in the B.C. Vital Statistics Act.  For      persons       unfortunate  enough to be born out of B.C.,  but in Canada,    there     would  normally be  some  similar act  ; governing.    For    persons from  i primitive countries where there  f is no birth registration system  ��� or   for  unregistered   births   in  ; Canada, Eskimos   or  even  for  those with births registered in  a foreign country with arc alphabet different from the English, alphabet, it is a good question as to just what their legal  name is.  To return to the three quesc  tions ��� anyone may be prosecuted for breaking the provisions of the Change of Name  Act. The act does however provide that no-one can be prosecuted without the permission . of  the attorney general and it is  not the policy of the attorney  general's department to give  such permission unless the person concerned is using a false  name   for   some fraudulent   or  ��� criminal purpose.  1     To  change a name you can  apply to the local office of the  director of vital.statistics ��� or  hire a  lawyer  to  do  what is  necessary   which   includes the  ' filing of various documents, ad-  ; vertising  in a   newspaper  and  ! the obtaining of the permission  from the director.  out band membership.  The Indians are also asked  if they want the wives of Indians who marry non^Indians  to have band membership, and  of they want Indian women who  marry non-Indians to retain or  lose membership rights.

FERRIES  Phone:   Horseshoe Bay 921-7411  Langdale 886-2372 Davis backs Winters for  By  JACK  DAVIS, M.P.  (Coast Capilano)  How am I going to vote at  the Liberal leadership convention? My answer is: Winters  first; Trudeau second.  I will continue to vote for  Bob Winters as long as his name  is on the ballot. If he is knocked off, I will vote for Trudeau.  I will vote for Trudeau against  Paul Martin for instance.  What are the reasons for my  choice? Bob Winters, in my  view, will make the best leader.  He has leadership qualities. He  dominates the room. He has  command in the house of commons. I've never seen him  flustered. And he knows how  to delegate work. He could  keep a good, strong team together. And he would eliminate  most of the static here in Ottawa. Bob Winters, as Liberal  leader and prime minister,  would make things run smoothly. They would run smoothly  because he would have half a  dozen bright, young ministers  running interference for him.  Bob Winters is an engineer.  Most of the other candidates  are lawyers. Bob Winters  knows what it is to be poor.  He is interesting to talk to.  And, like Bob Winters, has the  respect of the House of Commons. Perhaps, Trudeau is  sharper than Winters on policy.  But he has never run an organization of any size.  I think that Pierre Elliott  Trudeau would make an able  Lieutenant to Bob Winters. He  would continue to knock the  idea of special status for the  province of Quebec. He would  encourage foreign investment.  And he would back up Bob  Winters in his drive towards  freer trade. Trudeau and Winters, in other words, are compatible. But one has more experience and   more    command  Fashion show  Pender Harbor's hospital  auxiliary plans to have a fashion show and dessert party  April 9 in the secondary school  starting at 8 p.m. For this event  there is an admission price of  $2 and for students $1.25.  The big feature" will be exhibits arranged for the Port  Mellon auxiliary fashion show  which takes place on the next  evening. The fashion show's  theme will be Going Around  the World with fashions of various countries involved. There  will also be a table of novelties  and a display of ceramics by  Mrs.   Beatrice Fair's   class.  The meeting, held at the home  of Mrs. A. Alexander with 15  present and Mrs. D. Philp presiding, discussed the regional  conference which is slated for  Sechelt on Aipril 24. Pender  Harbor members will staff the  Thrift Shop on March 30 and  on the subject of this shop Mrs.  Gooldrup gave a report on the  continuing success of the shop.

But running a minority government in a world where  finances and costs are our main  concern, is another.  Paul Martin? He is too far  to the left. He would plunge  Ottawa deeper into welfare  programs of one kind or another. Also he would negotiate  with Quebec rather than stick  to the Constitution. And one  would never be sure ��� really  sure ��� where Paul Martin  stood. The master of the well-  rounded phrase would always  leave the public guessing. Paul  Martin as Prime Minister would  always be a conundrum ��� a  conundrum out in left field  somewhere.  And what about John Turner?  He looks good. He's bright.  And he speaks well. But John  Turner has never been a force  in the House of Commons. He  doesn't command the attention  of the M.P.'s. Also many of us  are still trying to find out what  John Turner really stands for.  Paul Hellyer I like. And Mit  chell Sharp I like. But Paul  Hellyer tends to be heavy handed in the Commons and Mitchell  Most of the others don't. He  was brought up the son of a  hard working Nova Scotia fisherman. John Turner and Pierre  Trudeau (like Bob Stanfield,  the Conservative Leader) always had money behind them.  Bob Winters, by contrast, is a  self-made man.  Pierre Trudeau, meanwhile,  is a man with a flair. He has  a brilliant mind. And he refuses to "be- doctrinaire or dog  matic. He sees issues clearly  and he says what he thinks.  Sharp is too closely allied with  the mandarins in the Civil Service. I want us to cut out more  of the fat; not spare the feelings of the bureaucrats in Ottawa.  I am not alone in my opinions.  Here is my latest tally of what  other M.P.'s are thinking.  Trudeau is out ahead. Thirty  M.P.s are for him; half of them  in Quebec. Winters is second  with 22; nine from Quebec. Hellyer has twelve. Paul Martin  eight, Mitchell Sharp five and  John Turner has four. The rest:  Allan MacEachen, Joe Greene  and Eric Kierans aren't in the  Coast News, March 28, 1968.     3  race    insofar     as Liberals in  Parliament are concerned.

No Canadian should remain indifferent to the fact that there is, in this  country? a program whose objective is to promote progress in disadvantaged rural areas.  ARDA is a joint Federal-Provincial program and its goafs are to  increase income and employment opportunities of rural people and  increase the efficient use of rural lands.  In order to achieve these objectives, AR DA is using various means:  ��� land use has been improved on two million acres in Western  Canada through community pastures, grazing reserves,  recreation and wildlife projects.  ��� rural people are being assisted to find alternative employment opportunities.  ��� new jobs are being created through resource development  projects in rural areas.  ��� comprehensive regional development programs are underway in the Interlake District of Manitoba and in the Edson  District of Alberta. The Interlake program under ARDA/  FRED provides 85 million dollars of federal and provincial  funds for human and physical resource development.  ��� over 40 million dollars have been committed to drainage-  flood control, irrigation system renovation and land conservation projects throughout Western Canada.  In brief, social and economic development for rural people and optimum  utilization of natural resources are the two concepts inspiring ARDA.

The revised date for the bus  trip to Vancouver, postponed  because of the ferry strike, is  Tuesday, April 9. Get in touch  with Mr. Bill Coffey if you care  to go. There was also discus^  sidn of a trip in May and among  the suggestions considered were  a three day trip to the Okana-  gan and a two day trip to Vancouver Island/ with an overnight  stop at Courtenay. The executive will arrange a schedule to  put before the April meeting.  Mr. and Mrs. Grice, the visiting committee, have made six  visits to the hospital since the  last meeting and reported that  Mr. James Leith has just been  re-admitted to St. Mary's. Mrs.  Daisy Crowhurst, in a message,  thanked members for. their  greetings and was happy to report that she is improving in  health and hopes to be back  with the branch soon.. Members were reminded of the importance of advising the committee when any members are  sick or admitted to hospital.  Appointed to attend' the annual provincial convention in  Vernon in June are Mrs. Lorene  Yates and Mrs. Hazel Evans.  To raise money for the delegates' expenses, a rummage  and home baking sale will be  organized in May.  The chairman spoke with real  enthusiasm of the Community  Birthday Calendar project which  is being promoted by the Sunshine Coast Lions club to raise  funds for the Senior Citizens'  homes to be built in Sechelt.  These calendars, said Canon  Swan, have been popular in  Eastern Canada for 40 years.  If a worker has not called on  you, telephone your order to  L. P. Hansen, Mrs. William McGregor, Harry A.

It seems the present government has made impossible for  the middle class or common  people to live peacefully by  heavy taxation while writing  off millions of dollars given to  countries who are ridden with  (undecipherable). These dollars  can be utilized to achieve peaceful living in this country. What  is your view?  This writer recommends the  possibility of shift systems, to  make better use of modern, expensive buildings and equipment.  Does   the   panel 7believe   we.  have toa many service clubs and  organizations  trying  to  do   the  same  job  and  sometimes  running in  competition?  To  Mr.  Davis:   When  will  it  be  possible  to  have     a    boat  shelter constructed.at the mouth  of Roberts Creek,    similar Yto -  the one-Sechelt now enjoys? v  If more income is the  cure-  all  why not have  the  government  give   us   all,   say  $25,000  per year then none of us would ;  have to work? Y :  To  Mr.   Davis:   Do you   not :  think the    guaranteed    annual,  wage  might  be justified  when  the   results   of  automation  are  fully realized?  Have you any comment on  the necessary part played by  home and parents in influencing the young child and through,  him, community betterment? .,'���<  Also any comment on the ..assault being made on parents'  morals arid ideals by the deteriorating influences of our affluent society?' Y  To Mr. Davis: What are  some practical ways that we  as individuals can promote and  encourage us in our community  to make it a better place to  live in?  With a guaranteed annual income of $3,000 within 20 years  is it not probable that this  amount would not be near .  enough to live . on? Also the  probability of more people than  jobs  is  highly likely?,/  How /do you propose to rehabilitate or retain those who  prefer or seem to prefer living on social assistance?  Could the current urban renewal program apply to a community of Gibsons size? What  would the local cost be.  Could you please explain the  aims of the Community Resources council?  For what purpose is a Community Resources council being formed?  To have a community there  must be rules. How can you  improve the rules without infringing on the rights of the  individual?  I may have missed the point  but what suggestions were  made by Mr. Davis on how to  make "our community a better  place in which to live?  What are your Views on total  disarmament ��� destruction of  all atom bombs and death dealing weapons?  Do .you consider this turnout  sufficient or rewarding or does  ���it show what kind of participation that would take place in  any other discussions of this  type?  To Mr. Davis: Ottawa may  be 3,000 miles away but Vic-.,  toria is, not and neither are  you. What can we do to get  you as our representative to  act in our behalf for some of  those federal funds to improve  our   communications..  Is this community betterment  for the people that are here  now or is it for the people that  are to come in and commercialize the  area?  Are we hot too socialized already? Tourism is the first  thing* to suffer in time of degression so why all the emphasis as an alternative to  such things as secondary industries?  There is an ARDA program  known as FRED. Can we come  under its umbrella in any way?  This area is under-developed,  yet it's only 20 miles from Van-*"  couver.    7  'is it- not true there where  people have been moved en  masse to. other locations for  better employment, they tend  to drift back to /their original  locations. This being the case  who: is correct, the economist  who -says move the people or  the sociologist who says don't  disturb the grass roots but provide employment for the people  in their native' surroundings?  Why did" the federal' government not provide sufficient  funds to provide an adequate  breakwater in Sechelt, one that  would provide protection for  tugboats and tows during the  wild storms of the winter  months. It would appear that  this present effort is too small  and inadequate to cope with the  small-craft traffic that is unprotected between Halfmoon  Bay and Gibsons. It would appear that the federal government, as usual is somewhat  short-sighted in this respect.  How can we involve ourselves to interest more people  to stay on .the Sunshine Coast.  Teenagers must leave the coast  for jobs, because there are no  openings. We rely on the Port  Mellon mill for our livelihood  but there is nothing to draw  the people to live there or in  Gibsons. Our tourist trade  booms in summer but in winter  the Sunshine Coast dies. How  can we keep the life going  through winter and the young  people all  the year  round.  The next four paragraphs  were by one individual:  For tourism, .we require natural resources. What conservation methods are the industries  doing to safeguard our resources? Port Mellon water and  air pollution, logging on Elphinstone leads to depletion of  animals and maybe a beginning of soil erosion.  Where are the steelhead runs  of Hastings Creek near Port  Mellon after Hillside sandpit  clogged the creek? What effective measure is the government  taking?  Where are the game wardens  when people sight their rifles  on black bears at, Gibsons  dump?  Where are the basketball and  tennis courts that are in an  operating condition? Where is  the organizing of these facilities  and why not?  If it requires $105 for an old-  age pensioner to live��� our  wages are much to high. I  would suggest we get rid of this  insulting token fee.

You can keep the liying  room at 70 deg., bedrooms at  65 deg., the baby's room at 75  deg. .... you just turn the  dial to the temperature you like.  This control not only adds to  your comfort but saves money,  too, because you need heat only  the rooms you want, when you  want ��� a particular saving in  spring and autumn months  when heat is often needed for  only a few hours in one or two  rooms.  Individual room temperature  control also enables you to balance heat evenly throughout  the house. A conventional central heating - system cannot do  this as efficiently, because its  single thermostat can only control temperatures according to  conditions in: one room or part  of the house. With room-by-  room temperature control you  can adjust the heat so that  rooms on the north side of the  house are just as warm as those  on the sunny side.  There's no combustion with  electric heat. So no soot or dirt  of any kind is created. Walls,  drapes and' furniture stay  cleaner, longer. You save on  housework ��� and on cleaning  and re-decorating, too.  Electric heating is gentle and  constant. There are no cold  spots, no drafts, no blasts of  hot air.

Electric heating is 100% efficient. No heat is lost in combustion���and none is wasted up  the chimney. In fact, there's no  need for a chimney. Also most  electric systems have heating  units in each room. Therefore,  no heat is lost through transfer  from a central source to the  various rooms.of the house. In  short, all the electricity you pay  for is turned into usable heat.  Modern electric heating units  are compact, take up little or  no floor space, and can be  easily installed in both new and  existing homes. With most  units, no furnace, fuel tank,  ductwork, pipes or chimney are  needed. You can make full use  of your basement space for recreation.  $5,000 cheque  to help blind  R. C.

HEALTH TIPS-  REJUVENATING  SEX HORMONES  The ovaries of women during  the childi-ibearing era produce  two types of chemical or hormones : estrogen and progesterone. These sex hormones are  part of a whole family of compounds known as progestines.  These hormones are produced  in the body, but others can be  treated or synthesized by the  chemist. In clinical medicine,  the hormones usedhave? basically the same effect, whether.-'  synthetic or naturally produced.,  The Canadian Medical Associa-'  tion says it is important and reassuring to the patient to realize that these hormones are normally produced in the body.  The use of these sex hormones is particularly evident in  oral contraceptives and in treatment of the menopausal and  postmenopausal woman. Because these uses have become  so widespread during the past 10  years it is natural that the general public should display great  interest in them. It should be  stated, however, that estrogens  in particular have been in use  clinically for about 30 years,  and therefore are not new by  medical standards.  Under certain experimental  conditions, and in certain types  of animals, it has been possible  to initiate breast tumors by the  use of estrogens. Naturally this  has caused some concern on the  part of physicians, but there is  no established evidence that estrogens can cause cancer in a  human. On the contrary, estrogen is often used in the treatment of breast cancer, and may  cause the disease to shrink and  remain inactive.  The C.M.A. reports that during the period- of time estrogens  have been in use clinically, doctors have not detected any increase in the number of cases  of breast or genital cancer. Published studies of women receiving oral contraceptives over  long periods of time have shown  no evidence of an increased .  number of cancers of either  breast or genital organs.  COME IN.'

"The UIC local office says  I do not have enough stamps  to qualify for benefit now I  have lost my job, but I am sure  that I have. How do I go about  proving them wrong?"  Prepare a complete list of  the employers for whom you  have worked in the past two  years. Indicate clearly the dates  on which you started and left  and give; their addresses. Send  this list to the UIC local office  together with your current insurance book and any supporting documents you have been  able to provide, and ask for a  check to be made. There will  be a thorough examination, and  you will be advised of the result.  Q.' "I am sick and am not  working. Can I be., paid Unemployment Insurance?"  This depends on the circumstances. If you had built up  enough contributions to qualify,  had completed the statutory  waiting period and were qualified to begin drawing benefit  when you became ill, your right  to benefit is not affected. If,  however, you lost your job because of illness, you cannot be  paid benefit until you again become capable of working and  available for work.  .1     eft1 WISH'THEVbBRINB  II     ����>THE RETIRIN*A<3-L T  KM  rd*  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886-2812]  Photostats  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS;  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  and other required . papers  can be copied by photostat  Coast News  Ph. 886-2622  TV TROUBLES?
