The   re-  iS $9,000 plus will come  from transfers from reserves  and surplus.  The capital budget allows for  ��9,125 for general government,  $18,600 for public works, $6,850  for parks and beaches and $6,000  for harbor development, surveys and sundry. This totals  $40,575.  The waterworks department  expects $35,300 revenue including $7,760 from surplus. On the  expenditure side $17,700 will go  towards debt charges. The remainder will be spent on administration, supply and maintenance plus a contribution to  capital.

Ifrwwked! -  A Gibsonite entered the Coast  News office and enquired whether the editor had viewed the  old United Church cemetery in  the village park. He thought  vandals had been operating.  Earlier the editor had noted  that something had occurred to  the park which looked as though  someone, had done a clean-up  job on it.  -The Gibsonite who thought  vandals had 'been operating  pointed to. piled up broken crosses and what appeared to be wider cracks in covering on graves.  However a Gower Point resident who also noted what had  occurred revealed that the work  was done by some young people  who in wanting to do some good  thought cleaning up'the cemetery would attract attention.  Well ��� it did!  Ferry starts  Ceremonies involving inauguration af M.V.

G. How for  the federal department of transport shows.  Dr. How carried out his investigation during the spring and  summer of: 1967 and has submitted a report with recommendations. He visited the Sunshine Coast during .July, 1967, making  enquiries at Pender Harbor, Sechelt iand Gibsons.  Dr. How's report states  that  the  seven  harbors  envisaged  for Class A; supervison would be Campbell River, French Creek  (Qualieum),  Gibsons, iPowell River: North,  Powell River South,  '"��� Prince Rupert-Rushbrooke and Victoria-Erie  street.  In addition  to  these,  the department   would  be   prepared  to  consider   the  merits of Comox-Courtenay, Sydney and Shoal Harbors.  It  can  readily be  seen,   the    '_,":"'   ��� _....���'_ Y _   '     ,_ .. ,  May  15  to   Sept.   15   as   relief  men.  The report advises that more  foreshore and upland properly*  ibe acquired, through reserve  or purchase, than has been  done in the past when harbors  are approved for construction  or extension.  In supervised harbors there  should be certain zones ^esig-  nated, 7for Y cohiniercial fishing  vessels only, -except with permission of the wharf manager.  It would be up to municipal  governments or local groups to  provide any parking areas required for small boats.  As regards   washrooms,   Dr.  report continues, when these  proposed Class A harbors are  plotted on a map, that they  would in effect form the framework for a fully integrated  small-boat harbor system to  serve the entire west coast  marine traffic in am efficient  manner.  As regards other harbors in  the area, Horseshoe Bay is  given a Class B rating. C Class  harbors in this area include  Egmont, Gambier Island, Halfmoon Bay, Keats Island, New  Brighton,. Pender Harbor and  Secret Cove. D Class harbors  are Hopkins Landing and Williamson's Landing  The- seven .Class    A   ports ' How..suggest��jthe government  "_*.. . *"��� "*"   " - _-���*..,-_-    -   .-��.-.-< " n^hVltfta    <__T_k,.v_*v��*_>.*_'V-+^a4?-4-t-r.    _>_*iv..4-n1  would * be under -year round  supervision by wharf managers.  The report recommends that  the department of transport embark on a more active program  of participation in small boat  harbor administration on the  West Coast, and that mooring  permits to moor at floats be  sold on a space available basis.  Wharf managers would not get  commission for their collections  but would receive an annual  salary. The department would  be responsible for those small-  boat harbors and facilities that  are available to the public generally with no concessions subsidizing particular groups or industries.  Dr. How also recommends the  regulations be amended to allow leases on harbors-for small-  boat related companies and  non-profit . organizations for  Class C and D harbors.  The report suggested that the  continued mooring of vessels  used as living quarters for more  than 30 days be prohibited except when approval has been  given in writing by the regional  director,   marine  services.  It also urged that no launching ramps be built by the federal government and that they,  should not be permitted to be  built on department of transport  administered property in the  vicinity of small boat harbors.  Recommendations by Dr. How  include:  That the department of transport embark on a more active  program of participation in  small boat harbor administration on the West Coast; that  mooring permits be sold on a  space available basis and that  wharf manager be paid an annual salary.  Special consideration for commercial fishermen should be  based only on their general willingness to moor their vessels  alongside each other, thus reducing  the  space required for    be obtained because the board  provide 5fr percentrotf- the capital  cost at Class A or Class B  harbors, if the local community  provides the balance, undertake to supervise and ' keep  them sanitary, andi if the  revenue obtained from side-  wharfage is sufficient, to write  off the government's share over  a 15-year period.  It would be up to the local  community to supply garbage  containers and see that they  are emptied. Power outlets  should be provided when revenue warrants it and power sold  on a daily or monthly basis.  In Class A harbors there  should foe cost shared fire equipment and that lighting and water be installed based on revenue  available.  Dr. How was of the opinion  commercial fishermen, formerly living in outlying communities, are moving into urban  areas and creating a demand  for winter berthing facilities..  The increase of pleasure craft  to about 90,000 in 1965 and still  continuing at a steady pace,  has by itself created congestion  in most of the harbors".  Space needed  Checking over possible accommodation for young school chil  dren attending Gibsons and Sechelt elementary schools, the  school board has opened discussions over two church halls.  One is the United Church hall  in. Gibsons and the other St.  Hilda's Hall in Sechelt. If the  Gibsons hall can be used it  would solve the Gibsons overcrowding problem for at least  one year and would avoid split  shifts, according to discussion  at Tuesday night's meeting.  St. Hilda's Hall in Sechelt is  also still under consideration.  In the meantime checks are continuing to see what space can  fishboats as compared to pleasure craft. -  No organization be permitted  to provide mooring or berthing  accommodation to the public,  or to its members in Class A  or B harbors.  He urged that where necessary students be used as wharf  attendants    during    the period   Municipal  hall.  does not feel it will have any  new accommodation of its own  construction before 1070.

Paul St. Pierre  While it is not the intention  of the school trustees to1 fun  the rentals of the schools aind  grounds as a business, it is  the trustees' desire that the  school . gymnasiums, activity  rooms and other facilities  should be put to the best possible use.  The schools have first call,  especially on Friday nights.  Adult education, organizations  and clubs, including Scouts,  Guides, Brownies, soccer and  other sports clubs are presently  making good use of the facilities offered. Whenever possible,  all (bookings should be made  two weeks in advance, as it is  necessary to consult principals  regarding the use of their  schools, and janitorial staff  have to be on duty.  As the janitorial Tstaff work  a five-day week from. Monday  to Friday, arrangements are required for a janitor for Saturday bookings. The accounts der  partment have also to be notified and fees must be Treceived  by the accountant at the school  board office at least seven days  before   the  booking  date.

They appear  to have made an excellent choice.  Members of Parliament should have ability and integrity and  above all they should be humanists. They need not be experts,  specialists or so called qualified men, these can always be hired  as needed.  To be a humanist is to love and respect and try to under*-  stand all creation ��� the mountains and the oceans, the rivers  and the plains ��� the creatures of the sea, of the land and of the!  air ��� and finally man; man with his great intelligence and boundless stupidity, with his virtues and with his vices.  Humanists are rare; to be a humanist able to express that  humanism with precision and poetic beauty is a combination a(f  qualities that could only be found in a remarkable man.  Mr. St. Pierre would seem to be such a man. ��� J. A. M.  75 percent under 54  Another myth bites the dust. Only 13.7 percent of the Sun����  shine Coast population is in the senior citizen class. The remaining 86.3 percent range between birth and .64 years of age. Of that  figure 50.1 percent are between 20 and 64 and 36.2 from birth tp  19 years old.  Those figures based on the 1966 census and tabulated by the  provincial department of industrial development, trade and commerce as collated by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics tell the  story. So if any government official tells you this is the place  for elderly people make him prove it.  There are* 2,935 between birth  and 19 years,  4,095 between  20 and 64 and 1,119 aged 64 or over. In the age group birth to  19 the 5 to 9 year olds number 830 or 10.2 percent, with 10 to 14?  year olds next at 9.3 percent. The young ones from birUh to four  number 755 or 9.2 percent and the 15 to 19 age 613 or 7.5.  Total population according to the tabulation within the school  board area is 8,167 of which 4,252 are male and 3,915 female or  52.1 male and 47.9 female.  Figures of the early school age and pre-school group are  looking tax dollars squarely in the eye. If you seek a breakdown  of the division of population there are 6,240 in unorganized territory, 1,450 in Gibsons and 468 in Sechelt.  Coast News  5-10-20  5 YEARS AGO,  Health department iristruc-.  tions have been issued for construction of a Health Unit in  Giibsons to include. this/school  district, also Powell River and  Howe Sound.  / Dr. Frank Decker took over  the Dr. Roy Scott optometry  practice in the Bal Block, Gibsons.  Charles Mandelkau, July 1  Celebration committee 19 6 2  chairman, decided, he would  take the job again for 1963.  Mrs. Pearl Betts, assembly  president, visited Sunshine Rebekah Lodge 82 along with other  assembly officers.  10 YEARS AGO  The school rate was set at  15.25 for a $620,099 budget. Sechelt rate for municipal purposes was 10 mills to raise  $6,690 in taxes. Gibsons municipal rate was 13 to raise $12,-  060 in taxes.  Elphinstone Co-dp store was  robbed of $1,000 when the safe  was cracked during the weekend.  W. J. Mayne of Sechelt was  progressive  The recent meeting of Regional, school board, municipal and  hospital district officials in Gibsons for the purpose of mulling  over problems concerning the Sunshine Coast area was a move  in the right direction. It could be the base for future meetings,  even half-yearly during which the various officials could hear  what other elected officials have to say.  Chairman Frank West while concerned with other fields than  finance spoke at length on the possibilities that could face the  area over the next five years. His thinking was along the line  of $6,500,000 that might be needed in that period based on visible  requirements of the hospital, school board and municipal officials.  While the figure is not exact it does show that possible! developments when carried out are going to absorb tax money.  AH this spending would not fall on the taxpayer over the next?  five years because some of it would be long term financing. However it is something that deserves what Mr. West described as  an arrangement of priorities.  When it came to discussing a regional community' council,  the feeling was mainly one of frustration with so many units  taking part through governmental, university and on the ground  operations going on, that responsibility appeared nebulous. Further exploration into this subject will be awaited.  If the meeting has done nothing more than make the elected  officals more aware of the breadth and depth of Sunshine Coast  problems it will have done some good.  <T    * J  notified of his passing examinations for notary public.

I signed an interim agreement for the sale of my restaurant including stock for $20,000  with a bill of sale and chattel  mortgage. The buyer's lawyer  advised this. Now the landlord  won't transfer the lease. We  both want this sale to go  through. What should I do?  A. See your own lawyer ���  don't consult the buyer's lawyer. His advice is quite good ���-  for his client. There is no such  thing under our law as an interim agreement. Actually matters have worked out for the  best for you ��� by accident. If  the landlord won't agree to an  assignment of the lease, the  sale can't be completed.  You shouldn't sell the stock  and equipment by bill of sale  and chattel mortgage, but by  conditional sales agreement. If  you have to re-possess, you can  sue for any deficiency balance  owing under the conditional'  sales agreement. Under the  chattel mortgage you can only  repossess or sue for the balance  owing. If the buyer abandons  the premises, the latter remedy  is not very practical.  You should enter into a new  contract for sale by conditional  sales agreement with a sublease. If you have to repossess,  then you can run the restaurant  again, if you wish, under the  head lease.

An Indian company located on  St. Regis Reserve near Cornwall, Ont., utilizing methods as  old as the game itself and manned by an all-Indian staff, is  recognized as being responsible  for the manufacture of 97% of  the world's production.  Letters to editor  Editor: Having read the Royal Bank letter for upwards of  twenty years I was delighted  to read your lead editorial dealing with it.

MORE SUGAR EATEN  Canadians are demanding  more sugar in their cakes, pastries, soft drinks, canned fruits  and vegetables, says a Canadian Sugar Institute report appearing in Food in Canada. It  said that while per capita consumption has increased about  15 lb. per person since 1920,  total annual production and  consumption has rocketed from  750,000,000 lb. that year to more  than 2,000,000,000 lb. in 1967.  The price of sugar, however,  has remained under an average  of 10 cents a lb. for 60 years.

Gibsons Bakery  Gibsons & Sunnycrest Plaza  Phone 886-7441  Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-9900  gion  s  The Ladies Auxiliary to the  Royal Canadian Legion Pacific  Command raised $406,790 last  year for community and Legion  projects. The 9,319 members of  159 branches ranging from the  Yukon throughout British Columbia to the north-western  States, put in thousands of  hours of. voluntary effort to  achieve this goal, dispersing  $359,020 to everything from soccer teams and scholarships, to  socks and shawls.  According to Mrs. D. I. Wells,  provincial president, the auxili  ary is growing just like the Legion with 1,504 new members  last year. The money is raised  by rummage sales, raffles,  bazaars, teas, fashion shows  and catering in Legion halls.  While the needs of veterans  and their dependants come first  with a whopping $143,612 for  welfare, upkeep of Legion property, junior sports and senior  citizens, hospitals received  cash grants of $22,779 as well  as wheel chairs, TV sets and  other comforts.  Scholarships accounted for an-  growtH  other $12,321 and organizations  outside of veterans needs such  as Red Cross, C.N.I.B., retarded children, S.P.C.A., cancer,  heart, T.B. and cadets, scouts,  guides received $13,180. Another  $24,982 went to community efforts such as Teen Town, Centennial triplets, Christmas  parties, May Day parades, baby  clinics and welfare.  FOOD FOR   GHANA  The Secretary of State for External    Affairs,    the Honorable  Mitchell   Sharp   has  announced  that Canada has agreed to provide $2,000,000 of food aid to  Ghana. Canada has been a  major source of supply for the  flour needed by Ghana for 50  years, and there is now a preference in the country for Canadian flour. This is the third  year in which flour has been  supplied to Ghana bringing the  total of food aid provided to  $6,000,000.  A BAD  SEASON?

Coin Club News  (By WALTER VAIANCIUS)  Ph. 886-2157  It is time once again to ask  all coin bugs to come out of hiding and attend our next club  meeting. I have had several enquiries about the club in the  past few weeks, and I gather it  is time to hold another meeting.  I was talking to Brian, Wilson of  Brian's Drive In Sunday, and  we were discussing the possibilities of making up slide series  for our fall program. We hope  to make series of oddities, varieties and coin grading. At this  time I would like to thank those  people who phoned me regarding the value of certain coins  and asking for information about  our coin club. The members of  our club are always eager to  purchase good coins, preferably  Canadian and American coins  to complete their collections.  , Anyone wishing information.  about the co]n club or about  coin collecting would foe welcomed at our next meeting,  which will be held Thursday,  May 16 at Brian Wilson's, Maple  Cresc.

The chairman was Frank  West of the Regional^ district  board who called the meeting  and present were members of  the Regional District board, the  ; school board, municipal officials  of Sechelt and Y Gibson;, and  members of the Hospital Improvement district.  Topics for discussion were  the proposed community council and Capital Spending. Mr.  West dwelt at length on the  capital spending aspects of  community possibilities pointing  out that the community over  the next few years was facing  the possibility of the expenditure of some six-and-a-half-million dollars and that there  should be some sort of cohesion  between elected bodies so that  financing would not result in  clashes between any one of the  elected bodies involved. In  other words he was looking towards a timing principle which  would avoid the possibilities of  the public turning down anything that might be put to a  vote.  His hearers understood the  logic of his argument but did  not appear to be too sold on  the idea of an orderly priority  presentation to the public. Not  that they were against the idea  but the varying methods of financing modified in some minds  the reason for priorities.  Under consideration Was the  hospital expansion, school board  requirements, Gibsons sewage  proposal, Sechelt's interest in  water andv sewage and the Regional District's probable entry  into the development of a general water supply. This, it was  argued, could all take place  within the next five or six  years. No definite opinion on  the capital -spending item developed within the meeting.  :r:;,When it came : to:. discussing  the proposed community Council it was found that the Community Council was not the  focal point of the argument.  What was disturibing was the  obvious multiplicity of areas  which had become involved,  such as government departments and the entry of the UBC  extension department as well  as the local aspects including  school officials.   .  It was suggested 'that the  area already has an Arts Coum  cil already filling some of the  need in. this direction. Hon. Dan  Campbell's 20 questions on togetherness were regarded as  interesting but would require  organization of many committees which would have to do a  considerable amount of work  in answering them.  Later in the meeting one  speaker aired his views on how  he regarded the happenings of  . today in the field of progressive  effort He maintained there  was too much expertise which  resulted in their being a multiplicity of experts who had all  the answers and could tell you  what to do but lacked any responsibility on their advice. He  harked back to the days of the  Town Hall type of the grass  roots method of handling problems. He was in favor of it and  felt that going to the ivory towers for advice was a costly proposition.  Dwelling on the recreation  aspects of life in British Columbia he said that at present anyone trying to get clear cut decisions out of government  sources  was wasting time  be-  K & E Towing  & Auto Salvage  ROBERTS CREEK, B.C.  24-HOUR SERVICE  Phone 88G-2S10  cause three departments were  involved, education, lands and  forests also recreation and conservation. As a result a veritable game of badminton is in  progress and for airly elected  ibody to become involved in  watching the bird flit from department to department is a  time-wasting exercise.  Mr.      West      sugested      the  Coast News, May 16, 1968.        5  idea that the elected representatives should work ^together  with what 'we have and be united in effort. There is the possibility that a meeting will follow next fall.  IN COURT  Fred Peterson of Gibsons was  fined $200 and costs on an impaired driving charge.

The speaker  was Mr. Fred Anderson who  has under Canadian external  affairs department part-sponsorship undertaken a literacy  program for the education of  natives. He spent 10 yeaite  there.  Mr. Anderson a_.er explaining  the position Zambia has in  African politics and economics  threw the meeting open to questions and based on audience  response provided an interesting evening. He explained that  his literacy job utilized two  natives and two Europeans to  organize books in seven African  languages in order to assist  natives in acquiring wider communication. He spent about a  year in getting the books ready  and arranged follow-up books,  small newspapers and other  aids.

He faded out of the picture when an  African with six years United  States experience returned to  Zambia and took over the work.  Zambia, at one time a part  of the Rhodesian picture is now  on its own with its own levels  of government. Its economy is  based on minerals, chiefly copper. It has little to do with  Rhodesia and its transportation  is geared toiwards Dar-es-  Salaam, capital of Tanganvika.  He explained that the economy of Zambia was attracting  a large number of tribesmen  from other parts resulting in  his literacy work having to con-1  tend with many tongues. The  speaker was introduced by Mrs.  N: Moore, president of the UCW  and he was thanked by Mrs.  R. Vernon. Coffee followed and  further conversation with the  visiting speaker who is now on  a literacy course at Victoria  University.  Snack boom!  Canadians are becoming as  snack-happy as Americans, according to a Canadian Grocer  survey of snack food manufacturers. This market is heading  for the biggest year in its history.  The boom in munch, crunch  and dip snack foods has drawn  major companies into the field  " and more are expected to jump  on the bandwagon. At one time,  potato chips, pretzels and peanuts had the market pretty  much to themselves, but the  story is different today. Party-  food shoppers are buying more  of the newer snack products.  One major company says its  volume doubled over the past  six years on existing products.  Annual retail value of combined snack and chip consumption  in Canada is $2 a head. In 1966,  ��� Canadians munched, scrunched  and chewed their way through  66% more snacks, including potato chips, than they did 10  years ago, Canadian Grocer  says. In 1965-66, they spent $20  million on potato chips alone.  Impulse buying plays an important role in supermarket  sales of snack foods.  USED FIRST IN 1919  The use of aircraft for forestry purposes was pioneered  in Canada and has progressed  steadily until this country is a  world leader today in this field.  One of the first recorded investigations into adapting airplanes  for forest fire control and timber surveys was carried out in  Quebec in 1919.  FISH MARKET RESEARCH  An in-depth market research  study of the Canadian domestic  market for fishery products is  to be inaugurated shortly, Federal Fisheries Minister H. J.  Robichaud announced. The two-  year $200,000 study will be jointly financed by federal and provincial governments and the  Canadian fishing industry.

The neck muscles are  tender to the touch. It results  from continuous partial contraction of the muscles attached to  the scalp. Typically these headaches come on towards the end  of the day when the patient is  tired;  A closely related type of  headache is the psychogenic or  emotional headache. It is due  to emotional upset which may  not be recognized. It is often  described as a squeezing, tight  band around the head, a heavy  weight on top of the head, or  a feeling that the top of the  head is going to be lifted off.  Migraine headaches are also  common. Although occurring in  both men and women, they are  most common in women. There  is usually a strong family history of migraine, and it tends  to occur in the more intelligent,  industrious, energetic, intense  and obsessional people. It results from a sudden expansion  of the arteries on one side of  the head and brain, after a  period of contraction.  Migraine usually starts with  a visual disturbance, followed  by a severe one-sided pounding  headache accompanied by nausea and vomiting. It lasts for  periods ranging from several  hours to a day or two. The  CM.A. says that each of these  types of headache can be eased  by appropriate medication prescribed by the family doctor.  Persistent or frequent headaches are a cause for concern.  People should not try to learn  to live with it.  Library services expanding  Growth of library service in  B.C. is reflected in the renamed Library Development commission, formerly known as the  Public Library commission,  the title having been changed  in the amended Public Libraries act passed recently iby the  legislature.  The emergence - of regional  districts within the province  may be one of the keys to future library development, inasmuch as the national trend is  towards regionalization. The  Library Development commission will encourage and assist  in growing co-operation between  libraries. The establishment of  information pools , and the increasing use of computers and  modern .communications systems will assist in the improved  service that B.C. libraries will  be able to offer their communities.  A long range attempt will be  made to have a complete library service available to even  the smallest community in the  province. The Library Development commission will act as a  clearing house for ideas, a centre to encourage regional cooperation, and the source of  various types of specialized assistance.  The local level of participation in library service will be  increasingly important, and the  responsibilities of public library  boards will be linked with overall library development throughout the province.  Hospital grants  Federal construction grants  of $300,203 for hospitals in British Columibia were announced  by National Health and Welfare  Minister   Allan J.   MacEachen.  Castlegar and District Hospital, Castlegar, will receive  $167,703, for construction and  renovations, adding 60 beds, enlarging basement and main  floor levels to provide space  for new boiler and mechanical  rooms, morgue and autopsy facilities, stores, and a new surgical suite.  Powell River General Hospital, Powell River, will receive  $88,500, for provision of a new  locker room and cafeteria facilities, and an addition to the  hospital building to enlarge extended care unit and provide  new dietary and emergency departments.  , Coast News, May 16, 1968.       7  UIC problems  Q. "I have my wife and three  children to provide for..My  friend, who is also unemployed  is getting the same Unemployment Insurance benefit they are  giving me. This does not seem  right. Why is it?  Remember that this is an insurance operation and not public assistance which takes degrees of need as between those  with dependents into account.  The benefits which you and  your friend are receiving are  on a basis of one dependent  only ��� but you are getting substantially more than a single  person receives who paid the  same contributions.  Q. "I have to file a claim  but I cannot get my insurance  book from my last employer  for a few days. Can I file a  claim for Unemployment Insurance benefit now and let  them have the book later?"  The answer is yes. The rule,  however, lays it down that you  must lodge your book with your  local UIC office each time that  you file a claim. So obtain your  book as soon as you can and  forward it to the office��� to  protect yourself against possible  delay in the payment of benefit. If, despite your attempts,  you still cannot get your book,  let your UIC office know.  SOME HISTORIC FIRES  In 1907, forest fires destroyed  the town of Fernie, B.C., causing 25 deaths and making 6,000  people homeless. In 1916, 224  people were killed near Porcupine, Ontario. In 1946, fire  swept through a large area between Blind River and Chap-  leau, Ontario and destroyed  over 1,000 square miles of valuable timber.  J&$  :\\*t*QStS  address  efficiency!  NAME.

A. Fraser, and Mrs.  Fraser, of Kelowna, and her  sister and brother-in-law, Mr.  and Mrs. S. Davies, of Edmonton.  Mr. Ernest Cook, of Honolulu,  and his son, Ernest, (Buzz) of  San Francisco, visited the Newman home. Mr J Cook and his  brother, Edric Cook, were one  time, outrigger canoe champions of the Islands. Mr. Cook  was at one time swimming  champion of Santa Barbara,  California, and was up against  real competition in Chris Hol-  strum, now living in Sweden,  where he was that country's  swimming champion and a participant in the Olympics.  Mrs. Ruth Mitchell was a  weekend guest of Mr. and Mrs.  D. Fenton, in West Vancouver.  Up for the first time this  year to their summer camp  were the T. H. Thomas family.  Their guests were Mr. and Mrs.  T. M. Bryce, Jimmy and Dona,  of New  Westminster.  Miss Mabel Rogers and Miss  Marty Mayne were weekend  guests of Miss Roger's grandmother, Mrs. R. T. Jenks. Also spending a few days with  Mrs. Jenks is Mrs. Jane Raines,  of Salem,  Oregon.  WHOSE PLIERS  If someone lost a pair of  cheap pliers in vicinity of the  Gibsons Sun paper boys' box on  Marine Drive, the pliers are  resting comfortably at the Coast  News office awaiting their owner to claim them.  controlled  new product  Some 30 persons interested in  keeping brush growth under  control attended a B.C. Hydro-  Dow Chemical function Monday  afternoon at Cedars Inn and  learned of the capabilities of a  product named Tordon on brush  growth. ._.      ;  E. S. Gregory," Hydro's district manager who was introduced by Bob Norminton, area  manager, turned the meeting  over to Bob Hill and Brian Parker of Dow Chemical. They explained that somewhere about  June 10 this area would be visited by a company; truck for  spraying purposes. Tordon can  be sprayed or injected, resulting  in the killing off of undesirable  growth. As a weed killer it allows grass to flourish'-extensively Y./"  Colored movies were shown of  operations in which the company took part in Australia. It  was explained that this product  killed right to the root and did  not allow new growth from the  root. Tordon's sale is controlled  and used chiefly under company  supervision.  A ceaseless battle has been  waged to prevent natural vegetation, destroyed during building, from being replaced by  brush or weeds on right-of-way  areas.  ' In the case of hydro rights-of-  way the problem is one of brush  control. If left undisturbed the  natural fores.ation removed to  make way for the right-of-way  will rapidly reinvade the cleared  area.  In the case of highways, the  problem' is one of weed and  brush infestation along the  sides of pavement and in median strips.  This product has been widely  tested and found to have none  of the toxic effects that it is so  vital to avoid in chemical weed  Ycontrol. In a province such as  British Columbia where tourism  is of such vital importance the  effects of chemicals upon the  wild life must be nil. This is  . the case with this under normal  field conditions and as such it  is recommended by fish and  wildlife authorities for use  around hatcheries due to its  high safety factor.  .; It is essential to ensure that  the chemicals used for weed  and brush control are applied  only on those areas where they  are required. It is most important that beneficial forms of  vegetation are not accidentally  killed off. In this context^ spray  drift must be prevented. Dow  has produced a thickening agent  which when added to the solu  tion prior to spraying causes  the solution to thicken to the  extent that it may be sprayed  from aircraft with complete accuracy, avoiding spray drift.  Ad attracts  Edgar Dunning' on the CBC  Sunday morning Weekly Editor  broadcast gave George Charman of Gibsons some province-  wide publicity over the Charman example of what Mr. Dunning called negative advertising.  For some weeks Mr. Charman  has been advertising that his  tractor was not available for  hire. This struck Mr. Dunning  as being odd so he broadcast it.  Actually what Mr. Charman  was doing was notifying those  who used his tractor each  spring, that Mr. Charman was  doing his own spring plowing at  the time.
