Phone 886-2622  Volume  22  Number 47 December 10, 1969  10c per copy  No surprises  in Saturday vote  Use Christmas Seals;  Saturday's elections produced  no upsets as all those holding  office were re-elected. There was '  one unusual event in the counting of the votes and that was at  Sechelt where the vote for mayor and the vote for aldermen  were alike exactly.  Canadian Press officials in  Vancouver queried the figures  but found out from Returning  Officer Jack Mayne that even v  after counting the ballots three  times they came out the same  way.  Giibsons council may drop the  advance poll next year because  only four voters turned up. Last  year the total was six.  Sewer start  by April  Mayor Wally Peterson expects  a start on Giibsons sewelrs by  the end of April, he informed  council at Tuesday night's meeting.  He was commenting on the  results of a meeting in Victoria  with water department officials  recently, who he said had put  council on the' right' track so  they could expect some action  in the near future. -  So, as the mayor said when  he completed hisr review of the  meeting -^Victoria, "We should  start on our sewers next April"  Gibsons Athletic Association's  annual report and 1070-program  came before council. It sought  a further float, and* a: lifeguard  from 4 to il .p.m. vdu^ng!-iwnl__  ~moitfhs:~The��re*w^^  for further consideration. Mayor  Peterson did not think, the 'village could afford a lifeguard.  Application for a license to  conduct business in the liquor  store at the head of, Gibsons  wharf, by W. E. Bradford was  tabled until the lease situation  was cleared up. Harry Smith,  owner of the property, has no  notification yet that the lease is  to be given up.  Mr. Bradford .intends to go  into clothing and general merchandise. Until the lease is given up nothing can be. done,aibout  issuing a business- license.   :  Council gave final reading ;��o  the Sunday sports and entertainment bylaw which obtained public approval in last Saturday's  vote. It becomes effective January 1. '        .  Here are  the results  of Saturday's vote:  X Means  sitting  memiber   (E)  means elected.

Council decided to introduce a  bylaw to set up a Board of Variance for consideration of the  proposition outlined previously  by Dick Clayton. The bylaw was  adopted after required readings.  A delegation of ratepayers  protested any change as outlined by Mr. Clayton as it could  result in depreciation of their  property if further commercial  structures were involved.  Council also gave three readings to a bylaw for the setting  up of house numbering in the  village.

They were molesting a spawning bed and destroying fish eggs  He was charged under sections  of the Fisheries Act.  A   complaint   resulting   from  work on the new water main  crossing' Roberts Creek last  . week resulted in a charge being laid against H.B. Contracting Ltd. the company laying  the water system for the Regional District board's water  system.  The complaint was made by  Ian MacLean, a nearby resident who was also a candidate  for, -.; election to the Regional  board in Saturday's vote. The  matter   reached   a   Vancouver.  Control oil fieaeli logs  sasmon spawning;���  A  meeting of the SCEPS on  Friday Dec.   5 heard five students  from  Roberts  Creek  Elementary   School   discuss .their  participation in a project involving the spawning of chum salmon in'Roberts Creek. The boys _  Matthew Ball, Tim Cotton, Pat,.  Horvath,  Norman  McLean and-  Steven Miles, who made themselves available at short notice  due  to  the timeliness of their <  subject;  presented a very well  prepared   description   of   their \  project:  The meeting in Wilson Creek  Community    Hall    confmenced .*"  with the showing of three/films ,  on   ecology,   after  which' ihel '\  students   made   their  presenta- -  tion. With  the~ aid  of a  chart''.  which they had drawn the boys *  explained in detail the aspects j-  -relating ioJ the spawning of saj��<��&  mon in the creek together wim -���  counts of live and dead fish 'on  related   dates   from   the   commencement of the run. In view  of the recent water pipe laying  in  the  creek  bed the observations   of the students  involved  in the project of salmon spawning   should  be  of considerable  value   to   the   Department   of  Fisheries   in their estimate   of  possibe losses  incurred  to the  spawning  fish and their  eggs.  The   students   also   explained  future   details   of  their project  which includes the possible seeding of     the creek     with  the  spawn of. other varieties of salmon.  The members of SCEPS have  expressed the desire that perhaps a full .-report on the project could be submitted for future publication. They also  wished to express their appreciation to Mr. David White, the  teacher responsible for the project, and to Mr. Mactavish the  principal of Roberts Creek Elementary School and the students involved.  Quite a number of people  have expressed concern about  the possible results of taking  away the logs from Gibsons to  Halfmoon Bay beaches, some  of which have been there for  years and play a big part in the  prevention of erosion of the  beaches.  The Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society looked  into the matter and were told  by Mr. Chamberlin of the Forestry Service in Sechelt that  the operation would be under tht*  strict supervision of that department. Their men will mark the  logs to be taken. No anchor  logs, those that do their part in  helping prevent erosion, will be  removed. There are designated  areas where no logs will be removed, Davis Bay is one of  these, and anyone : wanting in-  :< formation should contact Mr.  Chamberlin who has a, map  showing the  areas affected..  This operation is. an experiment arid as far as''_ the.'beaches  are concerned' will be a one  chance affair as far as the cori-  tracter is concerned; In other  words he will not be able to go  over the same1 section of the  beach twice.  _ The SCEPS suggests that anyone who objects -to this opera-  lion should contact the minister responsible, Mr. Williston,  also send a copy of- the, letter  to Mrs. Isabel Dawson in Victoria.  radio station, and resulted in  phone calls to Gibsons area by  organizations interested in protection of salmon spawning  beds. What happened was the  company in continuing the water line across the shallow  creek used its backhoe to prepare a trench for the laying of  the water pipe. It disturbedthe  area while the digging was go-  ting on.; Fisheries officials'  .checked and the work halted  for a time. Some .spawn'- was  reported to. have been disturbed  but fish were not stopped from  reaching higher up in the creek,  according to witnesses on  the  Gun clubs in  Ski club organizing  Twenty three people met in  Gibsons , Athletic Association  hall to consider formation of  ^^sfl-Jv-qJtabp.^The- meeting \ was  chaired'by Mike Haner of, Port  Mellon, who outlined a suggested set of guidelines to operate a club.  These suggested guidelines  had been developed at a previous meeting at Port Mellon by  a small group of enthusiasts  and beginners. There are sufficient adults prepared to pay  a -$20 initiation fee and give suf  ficient support to form a club.  There are two local areas  which would support good skiing  for the better part of the winter  season. These are the top and  south eastern slope of Mount  Elphinstone and the Rainy River Valley. Mike Jackson elaborated on the suitable areas of  Mount Elphinstone and pointed  out that a previous ski club  had failed in part due to committing it's efforts to an ill  chosen area. Mike Haner described the areas of Rainy Ri  ver Valley which are suitable,  but suggested that they are probably, a secondary choice.  ���   -  y'JIt _ .'could's jbe������-, practicalY.'to.  go ahead if mobile equTpifrgiif  was   available,   at  Reasonable  cost per person, -to get people  to a ski area.  There was    sufficient    unanimous support to make procurement of this mobile equipment'  possible.  A motion to proceed with  forming a club was passed unanimously. This was followed  by election of an interim executive consisting of* President  Mike Haner, Vice President  Lorrie; Wolverton and Secretary  treasurer Doug Howe.  A constitution committee composed of three volunteers agreed  to draw up a draft constitution . based on^Vancouver's  Mount Seymour ski club constitution. Another meeting will  be held Dec.;10 at the Athletic  hall io ratify a constitution,  elect permanent officers,' collect dues and decide on a plan  of action.  Gibsons ;Rod and Gun club  draw winnersare T; Kelly, Peter Madison and: J. Stanway;  Turkey shoot winners were M.  Ruggles, A. Anderson, F. Jorgenson, D. Herie, A.E. Scott  R. Drummond, M.

Alderman fo  :-.{  Gambier Carol service  Vandals busy  Sunnycrest Plaza's giant  Christmas tree might be the  last that will be''erected there  based upon feelings of merchants there.  Each night the tree has been  on display vandals have created damage by stripping it of  wires and bulbs and not doing it  in too careful a manner either.  Plaza merchants are not happy about the situation and may  reconsider their Christmas  activities for next year. Juveniles are suspected.  FLOWERS   BLOOM  So,far it has been a mild fall  with'some plant growth blossoming. Mrs. R.H. Griggs on  Sunshine Coast Highway reports Japonica in bloom and  California poppies have been  found, blooming. The-garden of  the coast* News, editor has roses  and daisies ; blooming. Mrs.  Grigg's. Japondca- had few blossoms ' iifc_Hicf. __*iing-~ but it is  making " up  for   its   tardiness,  At the Gambier Island Community Church Service in the  Veterans Memorial Hall, last  week, the Rev. Dennis Morgan  introduced the Service of the  Nine. Sessions.  This is the first time such  a service has ever been held  on Gambier Island, and it was  appreciated by the congregation of 13.  It is an ancient form of service held in many churches at  this time of the year telling  the Christmas story in appropriate scripture readings called  Lessons with carols describing  the reading being sung after  each Lesson.  The first three from the Old  Testament fortell the coming  of the Messiah, the Place of  birth and the visit of the Wise  Men.  The rest of the Lessons are  from the New Testament and  tell"the story as we all know it.  In large churches the lessons  are usually read by different  church officers thus combining  the whole church together,  starting ��� with a choir boy and  working through to. church officials.  The ninth or Epilogue is read  by the clergyman and it sums  it all up from'the beautiful 1st  Chapter of St. John. .  This service is usually broadcast over CBC on Christmas  Eve from the Royal Chapel of  St. George, Windsor, England/  where it first originated-and  is well worth listening to.  After the service the- cc" gradation enjeyed a soc.:ai hour  a v; d a del' cvous Chr'.stmas tea  was served by Mrs. A...-E.  Negroponte and Mrs. Harold  Wood complete with sausage  > o.ls, Christmas cake and shortbread from a table decorated  with a Chistmas table cloty.  and serviettes.

Voters are happy  Taxpayers of the SunshineCoatst apparently are satisfied with  the way things are going because not one incumibent seeking reelection was defeated. This applies to the Regional District board,  two village councils and school board.  y True some new faces will appear on these boards or councils,  replacing someone who chose not to seek re-election. This speaks  well for the leadership our boards and councils have given over the  last year. Not one candidate seeking re-election was defeated.  Mayor Wally Peterson, elected for the first time by the public  as mayor, after a six month fill-in replacing Mayor Fred Feeney,  along with Mayor William Swain, facing his second term will continue to lead their respective councils. Their records must have  satisfied the electorate.  The return of the Regional District board intact speaks for itself as well. Re-election of the school board chairman and one sitting memsber along with two new members fillip vacated seats  should be heartening to the school trustees who have had far from  a bed of roses latterly.  There were three bylaws which the voters passed. One was  Gibsons Sunday entertainment bylaw, the second was for. Roberts  Creek fire district and the other for Granthams street lights. All  three obtained conclusive votes as opposition was slight.  yNone of the elected bodies will have a cushy year ahead of  them as the money squeeze shows no: sign of easing.  A great growing place  ��� A job has to be done and one which the Coast News has been  hammering away at for some time, and that is the placing of Gibsons as a Sunshine Coast entity in its proper perspective.  This job will have to be done on behalf of radio and TV stations, the daily press and the general public at large in that well-  defined area known as7;the. Lower Mainland. Those Mainlanders  who iare lazy thinkers generally do not appear to realize that Gibsons] is the largest organized municipality on the Sunshine Coast,  with more than 1,000 pppulaton. Today it is actually in the 1860  population bracket and is growing, maintaining solid growth.     -  No matter how you look at the Sunshine Coast, Gibsons is the  focal point because of its size, in the same way that Vancouver is  the Mainland focal point because it is the largest.,  ..However in spite of the lack of what is called publicity in some  quarters Gibsons has plenty of background. It was ncorporated in  1929. It is a sound municipality having had the fortune to be guided  in the past by minds that were practical. It still is in the hands of  practical men and has an even better future ahead of it.  So, purveyor of information about the Sunshine Coast, take a  good look at a map, visualize where Gibsons is arid remember it  is the gateway to the Sunshine Coast, 14 miles from the Sechelt  Peninsula. -. ���".?������ '���'" 7  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  your  One of the most enjoyable,  although with some materials  the most strenuous of tasks, is  the building or rebuilding of garden walks. Nothing, except perhaps a patio, so completely  changes the appearance of the  home or adds so much to the enjoyment of the garden. This is  why it is so important to have  some kind of plan in mind before  you start to build; better still,  put it on paper so that you can  get-right on wfth the job.  ; Now that the cooler and more  invigorating weather has arrived, menial tasks such as building walks and patios do not  seem as formidable as they did  last: sprang when we were soft  from our winter inactivity.  . Garden iyalks aife made of an  infinite variety and selection of  mateiuals, such as white, pebbled or colored concrete, bricks,  flagstones and asphalt for main  entrance walks; and bark, gra-  vel.woodchips, pine needles,  stepping stones or cross sections  of trees called wood rounds for  informal walks leading to spe?  cial features in the garden pro>  per. , -  After the material has been  selected and.the width of the  walk determined, the next thing  to consider is drainage. By providing adequate drainage it is  possible to build walks, patios  and terraces so that the action  of. alternate freezing and thawing will not break br heave them  out of shape.  Paving blocks which are kept  perfectly dry on the inside and  underneath will be unaffected by  freezing temperatures. Whiere  moisture prevails, the frost will'  expand the water as ice is formed and may heave the blocks  out of place and crack them lithe process. The tiny particles  of water which collect in moist;  heavy soil under and around  pavings are responsible for  much of the damage done during cold weather. "  In sandy or well drained soils,  the action of frost will not affect patio or walk pavings provided the water is grained away.  In heavy soils it is necessary to.  arden!  By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research. Institute/  '   Ottawa  ry away excess moisture.  All walks except concrete  should have a three to four inch  base of gravel; concrete walks  should have a four to six inch  layer.  To build a concrete path, use  the same mix as for concrete  walls, only make dt soupier io  fill up all the small spaces. Over the drainage layer pour a  three- to four inch layer of one  to eight cement cinder concrete  or a 1���3���6 cement-sand-gravel  concrete. ��� 7  When it begins to set, it should  be rubbed and- smoothed with  a cement trowel or block of  wood to compact the material  and bring a watery film to the.  surface. After a little more setting, the concrete should be  covered and kept'damp for sev-  . eral days to cure or harden.  Brick walls should be set on  several inches of sand for drainage and also to make the bricklaying easier. To keep the bricks  in place, the outer layer should  be set in vertically or a wooden  or riietal curb placed along the  outside edge and covered by  soil and turf. There are four  common patterns for brick walks  and terraces��� the conventional  alternating pattern, basket  weave with board edging, the  diagonal and the  herringbone.'���'  If it is desired to set the bricks  or patio stone in cement, then  make .the' cubing as for concrete and add, after the cement  has hardened, a one-inch setting bed of one to four cement-  sand mixture as the paving mat  erial is fitted and leveled. The  one���half inch wide vertcal  joints between bricks or tiles  are swept full of dry one to four  cement-sand mixture and wet-  , ted down. Larger interspaces  such as between flagstone and  slate are trowelled full of a wet  mixture of riiortar of the same  strength.  The finished grade of the pav  ing should have a grade of one-  half inch to the foot. On larger  areas such as terraces or patios it might be better to slope  the area in more than one dir-  w,��ection to provide free  surface  excavate and make a sub-ba*^vSrainage^ 'Y *  of gravel, stone or cinders and       It   is   quite   practical -to~ set  to install drainage tiles to car-    heavy   patio   stones   and. flag-1  Health cost alternatives  FIVE  YEARS   AGO  Ernest Cartwright placed before Gibsons council a proposal  to construct a hotel and marina  at the harbor base of Georgia  Heights.

The federal provincial conference of ministers of health  met in Ottawa to consider the  report of tthe committee oiii'  costs of health services authorized by the ministers at their  last meeting in November, 1968.  The urgent concern arises  from factors;, detailed in the  report, such as a steady rise  of more than io percent annually in health care costs, arid  of 14 percent iri hospital service costs. .  The report states: The cost  of health services has risen so  rapidly in Canada in recent  years that three alternatives are  now imminent.  7  The standards of health.care  now available can be reduced,  or; taxes, premiums or deterrent fees can be raised even  higher, or ways must be found  to restrain the growth of cost  increases through better operation of health service structure  now in existance, and: serious  ^consideration must be given to a  future major revamping of the  entire system.  It notes also that the overall  quality of Canada's health sysr  tern is among the highest in the  world, through a 'combination:of  individual dedication, public desire, and government action.,",  The istudy committee setyup  by the ministers was held Tby  Dr. John N. Crawford, recently  retired Deputy Minister Tof National Health. It included .��� deputy  ministers and other senior officials of all the provincial health  departments. 7    -       '"  The seven task forces covered  the v following areas of inquiry :  Hospital Services: Utilization,  operational efficiency, salaries  arid wages, beds and facilities.  Health Services: Methods of  delivery of medical care, price  of "medical care, 'cost of public  health Services.  Members   of the    task   forces  were. leaders in the health professions chosen from universi-;  ties, hospitals, professional asso  ciations, and government.  National health minister John  Munro, chairman of the con-  . ference, noted today that the  wide-ranging report requires important decisions by governments and by the health professions. He proposed that it be  regarded as a progress report  and that the study group be  retained to make further rec-  ommendatioris on iiriplementa-  tion. ... .  Mr. Munro noted also the considerable achievement of the  task forces and 'the co-ordinating committee since their formation early this year.

For iny first night" in Guayaquil, I enjoyed a delicious meal  of shrimps, shiskebobs and Ecuador's famed Pilsener beer,  which I ate in the warm breeze  of my Canadian civil engineer  friend/'s fan, in his apartment  above the Rio Guayas; next to  a brewery. The last time I'd  Seeri this friend was on the chill  slopes of Whistler Mountain before Christmas. Here the temperature was about 90 degrees  at night. 7-    v  Returning to my room afterwards, I discovered the heavy  door was locked tightly,., decisively barring my way. Louder  knocking brought a long narrow tube containing the key on  a wire. This slid down" from an  upper storey window. So riiuch  for the thief situation iri Guayr  aquil.   ^.y.: ..:,;-y y.7; y A 7 -'7? 7,  Thieves are rampart iri Guayaquil. One's wrist watchj,' if on  an expansion bracelet, is highly  unsafe in Guayaquil���-someone  wijth an empty stomach and a  quick hand is liable to expropriate it. I later met a French  traveller in Lima, Peru7vwho  said he'd lost a new movie  camera in Guayaquil. He had  arrived in a bus arid was reaching up to take -his things ofif  the roofraek. He put his movie  camera :on the ground for a  second while he reached up  for something else. Glancing  back at the ground he discovered  it   was   bare   of   his   camera.  ������;." Next morning, early, I ate  "my breakfast���two hard boiled  eggs and a Pepsi, standing on  a tiny car ferry crossing the  Rio Guayas, with Bernhard and  his landrover. Guayaquil  sprawled along the waterfront,  jutting its docks out into the  river,    thereby    expressing its  riiadri reason   for   existence���it  is a''s&ppjftAy.��A'A;'"'���'��� ���'���'���',��� ���������,;������  It; is; the place where great  quantities of Ecuadorian bananas are exported from such  places as Quevedo which we  passed through onthe way down  along the coastal plain. A little .  later I met a young penniless  Peruvian student who had been .,  hitching around Ecuador and,  running out of money plus  hayirig his camera stolen, he  lugged bariarias 7 down on the  docksV loading ships so he could  continue his trip.  Ecuador ships boatloads of  bananas out into the world; and  you and I pick them up in the  supermarkiets. One time they  hung on trees in hot jungles,  now they rest amongst apples  and oranges beneath a cool  superriiarket light. Think about  it next time you eat a banana.  Chance did not put it there.  Swekt and toil did.  But by now the wee ferry had  docked or more correctly,  grounded, and we all drove off  Cuenca, back in the Andes, for  that was to be the base for  Bernhard's mule forays into the  field, tihe pi^cei from which  he would launch his, attack on  Mother Natures Swiftly through  the misty discomforting green  lowlands we bounced. The natural 'tropical! green tfiere I  found:; discomforting, upsetting  compared to Pacific Northwest  greenery. Here the green is  subdued andi fresh appearing.  There it seems too intense and  prolific, too thick and varied,  giving me an oppressed feeling.  Here of course I am far  more familiar with the woods  and what inhabits them. I have  entered arid passed through the  northern woods while at work  or at play and that has dispelled  their bogey men for me. There  are painful pricks fromdevil's  club, salal to bushwack through,  the odd bear or deer, but as  yet I've encountered no sas-  quatches or trolls in my wand-  '���.iimiimmiiumiTOmuiuinmumimimmmuummmmui  ��� BY^ SEAN ^DALY;^" >  M\iwM\mmwu\\aMmmiMWMM%wi\ra  eririgs.

This  happened to a small extent at  a ranch on the Guatemalan  coastal plain. I slept a ' night  there- in a" rahchhouse all alone,  with' people only iri nearby huts.  All the doors unlocked,' insects  clicking and_ buzzing and fluttering around. Despite my fear  and being startled at the slightest sound, I finally slept arid.  16 arid behold I awoke aliye arid  well to a beautiful. day, totally  uriindlested by anyone orv anything.  Later 1 went riding in the  fields rind watched the vaqu-  eros castrating Brahma bulls.  I rode out into several fields  on my own. Nothing attacked  me, no snakes bit me when I  walked around.

Our destination was  wear a shade hat, this from the  Vaqueros. .-/ '.yy^-AAr  Certainly there are. dangerous -  things such as poisonous snakes  or the Brahma bulls themselves, or everi one's horse,  but. : one loses one's /fear  by grappling with. them just  as we do when we drive a car  or run a boat or fall a tree with  a power, saw.  As we crossed,- ithe. plain  towards the wall of the Arides  again, we passed through, alternately, fields of sugar cane,  cacao beans, rice arid villages  of. bamboo :houses on stilts  amongst the mud and dirt in  which fait pigs strolled sleepily.  Cjhildren ran about mostly un  closed, women sat in doorways,  perhaps preparing a meager  meal or suckling a child or  sorting cacao beans or in some  way engaged in activity, though  looking upas we tooted on our  way through.  ANDY  CAPP  Electric raiige 59 years old  The first electric range was  demonstrated 59 years ago in  St. Louis. Sirice,then, the benefits of electric cooking have provided homemakers with untold  hours of freedom, and actual  enjoyment of the daily cooking  tasks.' 7-7', v:  Today's automatic electric  range is the ideal kitchen helper. It can even clean its own  oven! With ari automatic clock  to start and stop the cooking process, the lady of the house can  have roast dinners, casseroles  and desserts ready to serve even when she's been away from  home all day.The thermostatic  control of some surface elements tend to make each pot and  pan automatic. The sensing disc  maintains the preselected cooking temperature.  Basically, there are four styles of electric ranges: The free  standing type contains a complete' cooking unit - surface element, oven and broiler; some  haye warmirig drawers. This  style ds available* in widths  from 21 to 40 inches.  Before  you choose your, new<  automatic electric range, look  oyer the complete choice available to you, to fit your specific  needs. If you would like some  guidance before making a decision, call B.C. Hydro and ask  for the booklet, A Guide To Wise  Buying ��� Use arid Careof Electric Ranges.

The simplest type of law suit  occurs where there is one plaintiff and one. defendant and one  subject matter^ of the action,  for example, Doe vs. Roe on a  promissory note.  Doe may, however, have .another claim against Roer��� on a  dishonored cheque and he can  sue in one action for both debts.  If Doe has sued" twice, Roe may  have the actions consolidated into one��� to save costs, etc. If  there are two claims in the one  action, for example, two separate and distinct breach of contract claims, Roe may have  them severed into separate actions if they cannot be conveniently tried together.  ,Co_uiterclaiim��� this occurs,  for example, when Roe, being a  defendant as explained, has a  claim against Doe. He becomes  a plaintiff by way of counterclaim. The quarrels may be  dissimilar��� for example, Doe's  counterclaim may arise but of  a:car accident; or they may be  similar��� for example, husband  and wife each petitioning for a  divorce  on the grounds of  the  LEGION  BINGO  THURSDAY  DECEMBER11  8 p.ra.

CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  (Copyright)  other's adultry. In either event,  both claims are heard at the one  trial.  A plaintiff may sue two or  more defendants, for example,  a person injured in a car acci'-'  dent sues both the owner and  the driver of the vehicle causing the injury. The plaintiff  cannot, of course, collect twice  but may collect the entire  judgement from either defendant ������ or part from each.  Two or more plaintiffs may  sue one defendant��� for example, a number of owners of adjacent land sue another to stop  a nuisance such as the' production of noisei vibration, fumes,  smoke, dust.etc. Similarly, there  may be more than one defendant in such an action.  Two plaintiffs with different  claims against two defendants  cannot, however, sue in the  same action, thus, if fW owes  X on a promissory note and Y  owes Z for breach of contract,  Y and Z cannot sue W and Y in  the action.  When to interplead ��� An interpleader results where, for  y,example, B holds a sum of money against which both C and D  are claiming B is uncertain who  is entitled or in what propocr  tion the funds should be divided. To save himself from being sued, he should pay the  money into court and relinquish any claim to the funds.  Food outlook  The outlook for food by the  Economics Branch, Canada Der  _>artment of Agriculture, follows:  Beef:    Prjices  -may   sltrengtjheri  some towards the end of the  . year.-   ' " ... - ���������  Pork: Supplies f&re increasing  with prices mainly unchanged.

Canon Greene kindly presided at the opening ceremonies  and presented corsages to the  newly-elected president Mrs.  Madge Hansen, and to the retiring vice-president, Mrs. Alice  Batchelor.  Home baking, sewing,, needlework and white elephant stalls  were soon surrounded by eager  buyers, and the tea tables were  filled to capacity, with a lineup waiting.  The raffle of the Bluenose, an  oil painting donated toy the late  Alex Znotin of Gibsons, was won  by Mrs. O. MacGregor; the  crystal cake plate was won by  Miss Ormrod; the salad maker  was. won by Mrs. A. Batchelor.  Door prizes were not claimed.  The ticket for the adults is No.  18059, and for the children's  prize is No. 18024. Persons holding those tickets may claim  their prizes by contacting Mrs.  Madge Hansen, 885-2029. The  door prizes were donated by  Mrs. Moira, Richter. ,.'..���  There was a most intriguing  display of curios and antiques.  Mrs. Sf.

Shearwater, sunk in the Dar-  denelles. There were other rare  articles that brought back memories to the Veterans, and proved  educational to the younger generation.

I am unemployed arid am  now drawing unemployment insurance benefit. If employment  was available to me at a location where a strike was %m,  would I be disqualified for benefit If I refused: empl(^yment  with that com_)ahy?;  A. No. Under the^Unemployment Insurance Act, employment that has been made possible because workers of a certain company are out on. strike,  or locked out, as a result of a  ���labor dispute is not deemed  suitable. Therefore, no disqual-  ifiioation would be imposed.  Q. My son drives my truck on  the highway. Normally he resides with me, but at present  he is boarding iri another town.  Cart I look after his Uheiriploy-  merit Insurance?  A. If your son is employed by  you under a contract of. service,  he is entitled to Unemployment  Insurance. However, before in- ~  suring your son, you have; <lo  register as an employer with  the Unemployment " Insurance  Commission and you have to (establish clearly that a contract  of service-exists. A j person is  employed under a contract of  service when there is a master  and servant or an employer���  , employee relationship. Such relationship exists when the employer has the right to tell his  employee the type of work to  be done, the mariner of doing it  and the time the work has to be  done. In the absence of such a  relationship, there does not exist a contract of serviee, and the  employment is riot insurable.  BOOSTS PLANT GROWTH  Feed your house plants with  carbon di^Me!
