A pre-requisite to the issuance of any permit is ..the making of an application in accordance with the.

Accordingly, if and when the  Village of Gibsons decides to  make another, application ��� for a  permit such application will be.  treated as a new application and  the requirements of the regulations relative to, the matters of  posting, advertising, "etc., will  be invoked at that time.

If your district were to op-v  pose, such a specific application-  on the  grounds,   for   example,  that that particular area should,  be left open for public recreational use then the department  would disallow the application.

Today it has an edifice and equipment which after 24 years  experience in the community leaves little to be desired in (banking.  Back in 1946 it was a two day a week operation with employees  coming from Vancouver to transact business. Today's resident  staff offers almost every conceivable type of banking needed.  Perhaps the bank has been fortunate in its managers, all of  whom have added to the stature of the community. Theed, Larson,  Smith, Henniker and now Daugherty filled the managerial posts  of the bank in succession. Perhaps Messrs Theed, Larson, Smith  and Henniker had visions that Mr. Daugherty is now experiencing.  Perhaps they had visions more conservative than what has actually happened. -..

Ottawa  During the past few days,  florists everywhere have been  busy packing and dispatching  all kinds of plants for Christmas gifts. These plants, have,  no doubt, been received with  joyous ecstacy, an.emotion that  may later change to a feeling  of perplexity or , one of complete frustration, depending on-  how much the recipient knows  about plants.  Some of these plants will-be  appreciated for several weeks  after they are received, and  some for rn^ny years if the proper care is given. A few, however, barely last over Christmas and cannot be rejuvenated  after flowering. These should  be discarded as soon as their  usefulness has passed.  SJC 3j^ 5��C  ...' Nothing has been spared by  "the grower in producing lovely  flowering foliage specimens for  his customers. They are .given  special greenhouse condi#oiia(,  soil mixtures, temperaturey humidity, fertilizer and - in some  cases special equipment hasty  been used so that the plants get  extra carbon dioxide from the  air.' .' ���-...-  The shock to a plant that  travels from ideal conditions,  such as these, to a customer's  home is tremendous, and yet  much of this shock can be minimized if you,. the customer,  know the care required for various house plants.  Here are some of the gift  plants you might receive this  Christmas and a few words on  how to look after them.  Azaleas:   Never  let the  soil  of an azalea dry out. It requires  a good   soaking   daily,   and   if  starting ,tb  wilt,   immerse ^he  entire pot in a pail of tepid wa-  ter    until  air  bubbles    cease.  Keep them  in   a   light   sunny  window: even after   they   have f  fiiushedl- flowering.    Then    in! ^  sprang, y^pli-nge vthe pots , out-- .",  side  and  keep  the  plant   well"  watered.   Bring  them   in   next  year after a few heavy frosts,  say, about the end, of Novem-'  ber or early December.  Fibrous begonias: Give these  plants a fair amount of light  and a cool temperature at least  at night to insure much more,  bloom. Nip the tops offN tail  shoots to encourage branching  and more flowers.  wither, save some fruits and  discard the" plant. It is better  to treat these as annuals and  start afresh from seed each  spring. In order to effect cross  pollination and secure lots of  berries, these plants must be  planted out in nursiery rows in  summer, and be brought inside and potted before freezing weather occurs.  Chrysanthemums: Potted  mums are very popular at  Christmas. These >may be watered sparingly after they finish flowering, then removed to  a basement window until spring,  when they can be divided and  planted Out in the garden.  The kinds in florists' shops  are mostly late-flowering types,;  and will not be early enough  to flower outside in the garden  You may pot them- in the fall  before frost and bring them indoors. Make sure they are  placed where there is no artificial light to prolong the natural short days necessary for  flower development. The chances are, too, that if you bought  a dwarf pot mum it has been.  treated with a dwarfing, compound. Next year it may be 3  feet high.  * ���  *  *  *  *  Christmas Peppers and Jerusalem Cherries: Keep these in a  a sunny window and a cool  temperature of 55 to 65 degrees.  Once the leaves drop and fruits  Cyclamen: Water cyclamen  daily, particularly during blooming period, with water at room  temperature} Although these  plants may be kept from year  to year, they are quite difficult  to manage and need very special treatment, so it is better  to discard them. To, prolong  flowering in the home, place  them in a cool temperature at  night at least . If possible, find  a place with a temperature of  55 to 60 degrees.  Kalanchoes: . These ^ are delightful succulent plants and  should be kept in a sunny window all year where they will  flourish indefinitely. They are  hardly without flower all year,  but take care not to water them  too much.  Cinerarias: These are annual  plants  and must be  discarded  "when they are through flowery  ing. . ' '   v'~  *     *     *  Poinsettias: Keep this traditional Christmas plant well watered until all the leaves have  dropped, then remove it to the  basement and keep entirely dry  until April, At that time cut the  stems back to six inches and  start the plant into growth ^  again giving it water and moving it to a bright room.  In June plunge the pot outside  in a shady corner of the garden  and keep the plant growing all  summer. Bring it in before  frosts and be careful that it is  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE   YEARS  AGO \  The first of 20 Years Ago  feature started in the' Coast  News but the dateline then was  19 Years Ago.

Pot Plants: Many other pot  plants are now available from  florists including the Christmas  cacths, bromeliads and foolproof plants like Chinese evergreen peperomias and philoden-  drons; These will, give long-lasting pleasure if attention is paid  to certain details. Keep the  plants as cool as possible when  they are inside and flowering.  Except for  poinsettias, do  not  allow them to dry out completely, but withhold water gradually.

The. 5,000-specimen  collection has been described  by a museum scientist as probably the finest amateur eollec  tion in Canada^ -    '  -Mrs. C.A. Johannsen, whose  late husband was an avid gatherer of shells during his lifetime, has given almost the entire lot to the museums.  Dr. Arthur Clarke, curator, of  malacology for the National Museums of Natural Sciences, said  one group of shells within the  collection is probably the most  complete in both Canada and  the United States. He said a  number of individual shells are  worth as much as $100.  The assembly of. volutes, a  group of shells that are hoth  showy and expensive, said Dr.  Clarke, is the best I have ever  seen. Our museum has only  about one-third of the volutes  contained in the Johannsen collection.  The late Mr. Johannsen, one  of Canada's well known contractors, had displayed his shells  in specially made cases, which  are also donated to the Museums.  f'When the museum opens  again," said Dr. Clarke, "We  hope to be able to show the collection as one unit..probably in  the same cases. Both the shells  and cases are ideal for display  purposes."  The museum already has a  collection of 2,500,000 specimens of molluscs, the largest in  Canada and fifth or sixth in  North America. Its Canadian  collection is "by far the largest in the world" and there is  a rich collection of world-wide  molluscs.  In spite of this, only about  one-half of the Johannsen collection is represented in the~mu-  seum's national collection.  ROOM FOR ERRORS  Bill Forbes, editor of Canadian Printer & Publisher, quotes  W.H. Cranston of the Midland,  Ont., Free Press Herald as saying that there are no fewer than  4,367,428 chances of making a  typographical1 - error on each  newspaper page. Cranston gives  some other figures, too. There  are well over 5,000 men and women engaged in producing weekly newspapers in Canada, which  serves 2,397,400 faimiliei}. .well  over half the nation's total population., and during tMS past  year those same weeklies carried some $12,999,000 of advertising mostly error free.  ���u ���  Rieflectioiis after a house party  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886-2812]  LAND ACT  V  NOTICE OF.

S  as  I  ALSO Al SELECTED USED CARS  What to do  on  NEW WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION BOARD PROCEDURES  Effective January 1, 1970 the Workmen's Compensation Board wilt introduce new  procedures designed to speed Compensation payments to injured workmen  covered under the Workmen's Compensation Act, simplify paperwork for workmen, doctors and employers, and reduce administrative expenses associated  with the processing of claims.  After that date, here is what will be required:  THE WORKMAN  THE EMPLOYER  ���f    Provide suitable transportation and attention tp  the injured workman from the  scene of the injury to the ",.-  nearest doctor or hospital for  initial treatment, if required.  O   Report the injury to the  ���       WCB within three days.  -I   Report to first aid attendant  1   if one is available.  2   Get medical aid, if required.  3   Notify your employer  advising HOW, WHEN and  WHERE the injury occurred  and the names of any witnesses.  4 Send in an application if  you lose more than three  working days as a result of an  injury. You do not need to  submit an application in other  cases unless the Board asks for  it. When the Board receives  notice of a "time-loss" injury  (more than three working days  layoff) from the doctor or  employer an application will be  mailed to you. An application  will also be mailed in other  cases where it is felt advisable.  The new procedures will in no way affect the workman's  right to compensation and will speed up the processing  of claims. By accepting the doctor's or employer's report  of a "time loss" injury, in many cases, an initial payment  can be made to provide for the necessities of the claimant  and his family even before his application is received.  It is still important that workmen inform their employers  of any injuries that occur.  To ensure further that the workman's rights are completely  protected, a claim will also be initiated upon receipt of  notification from him.>-The new methods are expected to  streamline procedures for the workmen, doctors, the WCB  and the employers of the province who finance the    .  entire cost of workmen's compensation.  THE DOCTOR  ���f   The new procedures will.  eliminate the. doctor's first  report of injury in most cases  where a workman will not be  disabled for more than three  working days.  O   In the majority of "no  time-loss" cases the doctor's final report and account  form along with the employer's  report of the injury will contain  sufficient information to allow  payment of medical aid.  woRKmen's  compensaTion  BOaRD8SS.ff��-  707 West 37th Ave.; Vancouver 13, B.C.

Ph. 886-2481  School grants  ST.PI ERRE, MP  \     COAST-CHILCOTIN  After debate on the White Paper on Taxation some of the  controversial aspects are becoming clear. It was not made  altogether clear in opposition  speeches. Conservatives found it  too socialistic. One, Eldon Woo-  ���liams of Calgary, referred to it  as the Red Manifesto. But, then  Mr. Wooiiams likes bold statements.  David Lewis, who led for the  New Democratic Party, perceived a very. different fault.  The document was much, much  .too far to the right. It was a  paper designed to please onty  the privileged classes of Canada.  But, then, this is Mr. Lewis'  style. Almost every-time I hear  Mr. Lewis speak I am reminded  of the stirring words of William  Jennings Bryan: "You shall not  press down upon the brow of  labor this crown of thqrns. You  shall hot crucify mankind upon  a cross of gold." However, Mr.  Bryan spoke in 1896, before my  father was a gleam in my grandfather's eye, and that is a long  time, ago.  When the water of partisanship  is squeezed out of the speeches,  there remains nevertheless much  solid material of criticism which  will afford plenty of work for the  standing committee now charged  with its examination.  Hyliard Chappell, a liberal  MP for Peel South, attacked the  proposed capital gains tax on%  houses with some impressive  figures on houses at Valuation  Day, some day at about the  time of the tax implementation.  By Mr. Chappell's estimate, if  all the valuators in Canada were  set to work immediately on every house, they would require  40 years to complete the job  while at their current inadequate  strength. This; said the Liberal1  MP, was one example he perceived in the document which  indicated that there had been  too many theorists at work in  its preparation. Mr. Chappell's  question is one. of the sort which  will have'to be fairly1 inetiby  witnesses from the finance ministry.  Mr. Stanfield was .concerned  about the provision which would  oblige shareholders to pay; every five years, on increased val  ues of stocks which they hold  but have not sold. For a small  company in rapid growth, such  as a successful mine, this could  put such a strain on cash resources as to oblige sale of some  stocks. This, said the opposition  leader, was a cllear invitation  to more American takeovers of  Gapadialni industry, the very  thing which the White Paper  set out ostensibly to prevent.  Indian Affairs Minister Jean  Chretien announces a $628,267  grant toward hew high school1 facilities at Fort McLeod, 25 miles  west   oif - Lethbridge, ; Alberta,  that will accommodate 270 Indian  children from the nearby Blood  and Peigari Reserves. Indian  students-,educated in/p^^  > school systems^ he said* mingle  with non-Indian students and  have a better chance of adjusting to varying social, economic  and cultural conditions in Canadian .society. .Construction contracts totalling $1,238,226 have  been awarded by the Indian Affairs department during the  three months ending Nov. ,30 as  part of a continuing program.  The contracts, all over-$50,000,  are for miscellaneous work,  mainly on Indian reserives  across Canada.  In addition,.. about $500,000  was committed over the same  period for .minor contracts, and  ' authorizations to enter into agreements for public utilities and  services.  The Workmen's. Compensation  Board of British Columbia will  introduce new procedures to collect employer assessments effective-January 1, 1970. Under  the new procedures employers  will be assessed on actual payroll expended, rather than by  the present practice of assessing in advance based on payroll  .estimates.  With the exception of operators applying for coverage on a  temporary basis, employers will  be asked to remit their workmen's compensation premiums  at the end of each calendar  quarter, or in some cases, at  the end of the calendar year.  Detailed information regarding -  the new programme is now be-  ing compiled and distributed to  all employers in the province.  To simplify calculation, the  WCB will send to the employer  a remittance notice at the end  of each remittance period. This  -notice will indicate assessment  rates and previous payments  and the employer will have only  to enter his payroll amount and  multiply this by the printed  rate. The resulting amount represents the assessment due  which is to be remitted to the  Board. The cycle of remittance  notices will be either quarterly  or annual, depending on the type  of industry.  The valuation tax proposal is,  some say, a tax not on capital  gains but on capital itself. It  will hot pass easily into law.  But perhaps the most prominent point of MP disagreement  with government oh the White  Paper proposals is the suggestion of easing the tax on small  businesses. This drew, criticism  from speaker after speaker, notably, in my list, Mr. Stanfield,  Bob Kaplan (Liberal Don Valley)  and Toni Goode (Liberal Richmond).  The two-level system of corporation taxes, which now gives  an edge to small businesses to  enable them to expand, is also  being used as a tax dodge by  private citizens who incorporate themselves to v delay and  sometimes to avoid full payment of taxes. The White Paper  proposes to eliminate the. two-  level system. "'���  ''  The opponents, to whose view  I incline, say that some other  method of preventing abuse of  the two-level system must be  found. Mr. Kaplan suggested  replacing it with an expansion  allowance, which would permit  small growing (businesses _ to  plow profits back into expansion  There were other suggestions.  There will be more.  Out of the debate, which is in  its closing hours of its second <  day, I write these notes, thre9  major   issues   of question   and  concern have arisen:  1. The tax on capital, which is  attributed to the five-year valuation system;  2. The lapse of tax benefits  for small businesses;  3. -The graduated tax rates,  their fairness and practicability  or the lacfe of them.  To these I would add another.  No, tax, system is workable "if  too complicated'. In further discussions and studies of the tax  system, I want to see demonstrated that the new system can  be simpler than the old.  Oddly enough, out of this debate V-out of reaction across the  country generally, the biggest  tax innovation of all seems to  have, met general" acceptance.  Practically no one is disputing  the principal! that capital gains  should be taxed.  HI!

(By a Practicing Lawyer)  Following are earlier articles  on the mechanic's lien act, we  have received a number of questions regarding just what it is  that lien claimants must..prove  to establish their liens.  Any contractor, sub contractor,  material man or workman  may file a lien in the land registry office    against    land on  which he  has worked.  Let us  assume  John Doe is   the  land  owner, Mammoth , Construction  Ltd.  is the contractor,  employing, among.others, one Hammer  as a, carpenter. Kilowatt Power  is the electrical sub contractor  employing,  among others,  one  Sparks  as  an   electrician,   and  Steel Strength Sheet Metal supplies   sheet   metal.   The   sheet  metal is shipped to Kleenvent  Ltd.  for fabrication  into  ductwork and delivery onto the site.  When    construction    of John  Doe's building has reached the  half  way  stage,   Mammoth is  forced into   bankruptcy.   They  cannot  pay Kilowatt  oi*  Hammer or Kleenvent. Kilowatt and;  Kleenvent are forced against the^  wall and Sparks also is not paid  his wages. Liens flutter into the  land registry office like leaves  falling   in   autumn.   Sometimes  there will he hundreds of them.  An   earlier   article  dealt   with  the  15  percent holdback, .payment of same into court,  and  priority of payment when there  is not enough funds to go around.,  Let us assume an all around  agreement  and   settlement  between    all    partiesycannot .be  reached and the matter comes to  trial.  Hammer and Sparks must  come into court (havng sub-  poened the time keepers, pay-r  masters, etc.) .and prove by  sworn oral testimony, backed up  by pay records, that they were  not paid the wages to which they  were entitled. Kleenvent must  also come into courty ahd prove  by* truck drivers, swampers and  watchmen, etc. with signed packing notes receipts, etc., that  they delivered such and such  materials.: Steel.Strength must  similarly prove delivery , of  sheet metal to Kleenvent, and  they must go .further and foi: ?  ���low the material through all. the ;  hands they.,passed onto the site.  Januanrltood  PORK:   Domestic  supplies   are  ." increasing with prices femain-  .   ing firm.-        :  BEEF:   Prices   can-; be   expec-  tedl to remain steady.    ,  EGGS:    Plentiful    supplies    at  lower prices.        ^     .... -  POULTRY MEAT: yBroiler and  roaster chicken will be in-plen-.  tiful supply at relatively > low  prices.    Supplies    of   broiler  turkeys, will be  adequate   to  short at firm prices.  APPLES:      Supplies   plentiful;  prices slightly lower.  PEARS:   Large  supplies;   prices steady.  POTATOES:      Ample supplies;  prices slightly higher.  CARROTS & ONIONS: In good  supply with prices firm.  RUTABAGAS:    Light   supplies;  prices strong.  Prepared by the economics  branch, Canada Department of  Agriculture.  (Copyright)  If Kleenvent intermixed the  sheet metal with other jobs and  if the material is not marked or  stamped or. otherwise' identifiable, Steel Stength is out of luck,  It will be apparent that what  started out as a legal action  against Doe has developed into,  a battle' between all the lien  claimants against, one another���  each one trying to reduce or  knock out the claims of all the  others. There is not enough money in the holdback to go around  so the court will be vigilant to  see that no one succeeds in padding his claim. The moral is  get your lien on early���be able  to prove it..and watch carefully for false claims of others.  Of  grows  Canada's population as of  Oct lV has been ^estimated at  21;180;000, aih \^^^^^0^  during the Uiird quarjter of this  year. This campares 7with 82,-  000 in the second quarter and  of 07,000* rin" the first quarter.  Since OCt. 1, 1908, the increase  amounted to 323,000 or 1.5 percent. Canada's population rose  by 390,000 between ,0'ct/r'l, 1966  and Oct. 1, ,1967, and 309,000 between Oct. 1, 1967 and Oct.l  1968.      ..  The total increase, 323,000,  during the 12. months between  Oct. 1, 1968 and Oct. 1> 1969 was  not distributed evenly among  the provinces. Ontario's growth  was 163,000yor 50 percent of the,  total Canadian gi^^th;V hot only  because over one-half of immigrants chose Ontario as the  province .of" destination, but also because a large proportion  of interproyincial migration was  destined to Ontario.  British Columbia's share was  61,000 or 18 percent, Quebec  gained; 17.6 percent of the total  of 57,000.ypersons. Small gains  were also- shown'by Manitoba  .5,000, Newfoundland, 4,000; No-/'  va Scotia, 2,000;"%Prince Edward  Island and New Brunswick remained -the samer while JSaskat-  chewan lost 6,000: due largely to  out migration to other prvmces.

He' dropped me in  the square, loaded with buses  ,and collectives and I, rushed  to my. hotel, swung my heavy  pack on my back and returned.  to the square along a muddy  alleyway, intent on returning to  Lima after my sojourn, in the  Andes.  Re-entering the small square  on this busy Monday I squeezed  past throngs of scurrying people,  sizing up the numerous buses  as I went. Small boys cried out,  the destinations and departure  ���times. To such and such place,  leaving in ten minutes they  would cry, while the driver sat  gunning his motor periodically,  to give the impression that he  was leaving immediately. .

Asking the j  price I was told 50 soles. When }  I looked astonished and hesitant  he quickly lowered it to 40 soles,  which was 'what the Peruvians )  paid. Though the driver enthu-r j  siastically gunned his motor as \  if impatient to leave, we in fact  didn't leave until the bus was  full, about forty 'minutes later.  I found this most amusing, thisY  large discrepancy between stated'  and actual departure times. Ourj  criterion for leaving was getting;  the seats (often the' aisles) and^  roofrack filled with people and >  their produce  (chickens,  sacks v  of buns,   potatoes,   corn   etc.)  rather than strictly adhering to  some abstract schedule.  During the voyage the co-pilot (extra driver) sat beside hie  and sharing a grey llama blanket Over our knees, we conversed  in Spanish. While he told me a  few words in Quechua, the language of the Inca empire. He  constantly kidded the, luggage  boy, calling him a ohico' borra-  cho or drunken child due to liis  cheeky antics.y'y ���  When my friend, a very warm,  lively mah; spelled off the other  driver, I sat in silence as we  rolled through the frontier lands  of the llahios and my mind  roamed far and wide with many  thoughts: As we stopped for coffee (the driver and I) in a small  brown town - with a Quechua  name, we heard some popular  music such as might be heard  on. ay local /Vancouver popy star  tion. It seemed a little incongruous in this fantastic wilderness  austere land with little ' brow*.  windswept towns and numerous  rock walls, sheep and llamas,  seemingly little changed " since  Inca days. ���  It caused me to reflect on the  global village���how we are all  . tied up with each other iii the  world. Cultural diffusion has  spread Northamerican popular  music even into this_distant corner of the world. The Incas  can no longer exist in their  closed empire, oblivious to the  world around them.  No place is exempt from at  least some aspects of worldwide culture such as transistor  radios, Coca Cola, money economy, buses clocks and booze.  Where once the Incas were physically invaded by the conquis-  tadores, now the Peruvians are  invaded by the new consumer  products and their corresponding affect on human values.  Where once the most highly valued-activity may have'been to  work productively in the fields,  now amongst the young- it is  changing to a desire to go to  the U.S. and get a higher education and live like a 'North-  americano' with all his luxuries. Some think the US is equivalent to Paradise with its huge  cities and heaps of flashing,  shiny gadgets and promise of  living 'in the lap of luxury'. On  the other hand I met Peruvians  and many other Latinamericahs  who are strongly opposed to the  war in Vietnam and dismayed if  not angered by the existing.  (world role of the U.S.  . One young Peruvian high-  school student I later met made  a particularly strong impression on me. First he told me I  didn't look like an Anglo-Saxon,  but rather with my dark hair  and eyes and "facial features,  more like a Latinamerican or  perhaps even Peruvian. This I  took as a compliment and I became most sympathetic to him  and what he had to say. As we  v wandered amongst the Inca  stone buildings above Pisac he  expressed bis fierce hatred ��� of  the. conquering .Spaniards for  their ravaging of his land and  people.  Earlier, in Mexico City I had  mef a pleasant "Spaniard, a chemist, , touring -Latihamerica yby  , plane, wh*. said let bygones be  bygones and admittedly the con-  quistadbres did rotten things  but that was long ago, a page  of history and now the peoples  of Spain ahd Latinamerica  should be' friends. Which is true  but which overlooks the fact  that damage. done in the past  doesn't  automatically erase it-  ongst the great majority of people. The Spanish Conquest  helped to destroy people's faith  in themselves by destroying  their inimitable works of architecture, ���engineering, religion and  replacing these with Spanish  structures and Christianity.  In Chihuahua, Mexico I met  a Mexican professor of enty-  mology who had travelled in  Central and South America and  who/had felt immense hatred  of what Spaniards had done  wherever he went and which  he felt strongly himself. So  Latinamericans haven't forgotten and a few countries like  Peru, which recently expropriated an American oil company  intend to halt modern foreign  ; exploitation of *; their. countries.  ; But now to return to my bus  trip, wherein we were approaching La Oroya. We had picked  up a passenger on the lonely  roadside who spoke loudly and  excitedly, sometimes with strong  tears, othertimes with smiles.  He'd apparently just been in a  bus accident (we saw a bus  bashed against a bridge pillar)  and his hands were bruised and  bleeding a bit. His demeanor  tugged at my sympathy chords  though ambivalently I resented  his loud intrusion into my reflections. He brought me back  to reality and human misery.  The driver, my friend, spoke  long and sympathetically with  him as he drove, shaking his  head at the recounting of the  bad accident.

news
Anyone receiving a disability
pension cannot make contributions to the Canada Pension Plan
as long as he receives the pension. At age 65, his disability
pension automatically is replaced by a retirement pension. -
Should a contributor die* while
receiving a disability pension,
survivor's benefits become payable to his widow and children.
The plan also provides benefits for the dependent children
of a disabled contributor. For
each dependant child, up to four
children, $26.53 will be paid per
month in 1970. For each additional child, one-half that amount
will be paid. Total payments for
the children are divided equally
among them. Payment will begin at the same time as the
contributor's disability pension,
and end when the child is no,
longer eligible or when- the contributor stops receiving a disability pension.
Since - circumstances and relevant details of each case vary,
Health and Welfare Minister
John Munro urged applicants to
consult Canada Pension Plan
personnel at CPP district offices across Canada, or at the
local offices operated on a part-
time basis by district office
staff members.

therefore" ^equal ' contributions

man gets more when he is out

A. While it is true ^hat. a
family* '.man contributes the
same amount of money to the
Unemployment Insurance. Fund,
as a single man elarning _the
same rate bf\pay, he neverthe
less has a,greater obligation
than a 'single' man,' being "obliged to support his family.1 The
rate of benefit is therefore adjusted -to permit, him to' discharge these responsibilities. As
a matter of /act, it is quite common for ar single man to be
listing a dependent, for example
an invalid - mother ' whom he'
wholly or mainly supports.  •

ere is no doubt in my mind that advertising
is a powerful means of communication.
And an efficient one.
So why don't we use advertising to
sell ideas as well as products?
Things like safe driving.
Or recruitment of police and social workers.
Even understanding between nations. J J
