Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  SERVING.   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published  at Gibsons,   B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 22  Number 44, November 19, 1969.  10c per copy  Sewer application rejected;  Council told to try again  The Pollution Control board  has informed Gibsons council  that.its application for a permit  to go ahead with its sewer system has been turned down.  At'the same time council has  been advised that when re-applying it should include in the  application the present sewer  lines from Elphinstone school  down School Road to the water  and on Marine v Drive and Gower  Point Road, new tied in with the  School Road line.  The correspondence which was  addressed to council was in the  form-of two letters, the first  being registered and from W.N.  Venables, director of the Pollution Control board. It reads as  follows:  Re: Application for a permit  pursuant to Pollution Control  Act, 1967 dated February 0, 1969  This will advise that pursuant  to Subsection 3(a) of the Pollution Control Act, 1967 a Permit  for the above application has  been refused.  In considering this application  it is apparent that there is a lack  of evidence at this time to assure that there will be no impairment of the aestetic quaulities of  the receiving waters with only  conditioning of the wastewaters  as proposed.  W.N.Venables, director.  A letter from the dame office  on the same date, Nov. 4 from  R.H." Ferguson, staff engineer,  projects and research as follows  Further to our registered let-,  ter of November 4, 1969 and "in  anticipation of an application in  accordance   with  the Pollution  Control   Act,   1967 we  wish   to  these discharges should be incorporated into a municipal system.  Please take this notice under  advisement.  R.H.- Ferguson, staff engineer  projects and research.  Permits 1 and 31 cover the  two'sewage systems now in operation, one from Elphinstone  sfchooi and the other on Gower  Point road and Marine drive in  the vicinity of school, road.       - y  . Wednesday  night  council - ar--  ranged to meet with Martin Day:  ton, council's engineerfon Thvifs^ -  day   and   as   a   result, of "this",  meeting" and after'communication with thQ .chairman of the  pollution' control- board,"   council  decided it would make another  application  after   further  consideration with the pollution,,  control  board in Victoria.  Chamber of Commerce  backs new tourist plan  Ramifications of the new tour-  -��� ism drive for the'Sunshine Coast  were outlined at Monday night's  meeting of Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce with  President Frank Hay in the  chair.  Mr. Mike Ovenall, co-ordinator  of tourism for the Mainland  Southwest, aided by a double  screen pictorial presentation of  the program, explained that for  $300 from Gibsons council  matched by $300 from the Chamber of Commerce Gibsons could  have 6,000 booklets containing  eight ..pages covering Gibsons  and area which could be ' distributed .far and wide in order  to attract tourists. He argued  that Gibsons,main job was to,  get tourists from the Vancou-  , ver area, as this , was its largest potential market.  Chamber members fell in with  the idea and thought it would  be a good thing for Gibsons area  morning session if they could.  Generally it was found that, the  shift- system, while a handicap  in homes where the students  are involved in a morning and  afternoon sessions, has created  a home situation which is not  of the best.  Mrs. Labonte during her explanation said as regards to the  extra room in the referendum for  Madeira Park school that it  may or not be built, basing her  contention on the -population  factor which might cause the  board to make its decision either way. Mrs. Labonte also  stated it was better to put all  they could into the referendum  because if it passes the educa-  t:on department pays up .to ,90  percent of the cost. If the construction or furnishing was to  come out of the school budget,  the taxpayer would have" to supply the full amount through  taxes. - -       '  Mr. Hanna informed chamber  MRS. GAYLE OHLER and some ofyiher small charges; at the nursery school being operated in the United Church Hall. The nursery  School provides an opportunity for children three to five years" old  to learn to play together and co-operate with other children before  "reaching kindergarten. ��� :    7 ;   *  g surprise  Like a refreshing bubbling  brook The B.C. Boys choir under direction of Donald Forbes  .submerged a fair-sized audience  in Elphinstone school gym Saturday evening in unadulterated  music and left the audience  -wanting more.  - The sheer .untrammelled music which came, from- the choir  of approximately 35 was a delight and the four soloists, Donald and Ronnie Haney, Bob  ' Croft and Ed! Freisen expressed  quite clearly the fine training  that this choir.has received from  the hands,of their .director.  They  sang  church music as  a -definite form in our minds.  They are truly wonderful. A new  bond was created; something  more than friendship, because  our host, the Canadian families,  have given us a feeling -of a new  home.  I would like to express my  warmest thanks to you, Mr.  Headley, to your wife and your  daughter,; Claudia, for; your  great effort, hospitality and organization, which surpassed all  our   expectations.

Bill'  was born in Vancouver in 1939  and came to Gibsdns with his  family in 1945.  Educated,in Gibsons, Bill graduated from Elphinstone in 1956  He has worked in Port Mellon  since 1956, started in on the  production line and then appren-  ticed as machinist millwright.  During the last four years Bill  has been president, trustee, executive member and now is  first vice-president of Local 297, <  International Brotherhood of  Pulp and Sulphite Workers.  He has always been interested  in sports and prefers more re-,  creation  for 'young and old  Roberts Creek  has fire vote  December 6 is Plebiscite Day  at Roberts Creek, and it is the  hope of Fire Chief Stan Rowland that the area, will vote  in the affirmative. 7  The recent appeal for donations to help out the fire department in this area has resulted  in fan overwhelming response,  Chief Rowland said. "We  thank you most, heartily. This  response has caused! the spark -  to v glow brighter after nine^  nionths of frustration and untiring  work. "  'fOn Sunday, Nov. 30 at 2:30  at 7 Roberts Creek Community  Hall we are holding a public information ^meeting, and hope you  will bring your questions and  comments, and hear what your  fire department has accomplishedyto 'date?' y-  be-open for Gibsons district ad  vertisihg." This could be sold  through the Chamber at space  rates and possibly help the chamber with an addition to its  funds.  Following Mr. Ovenall's presentation members of the school  board explained what was involved in the referendum for  further school construction. Present was R.R. Hanna, district  superintendent, board chairman  Mrs.' Sheila Kitsdn, Trustees  Mrs. Labonte and Don Douglas  and J.R. Metzler, Secretary-  treasurer.  Questions were asked chiefly  on the effect of the split shift  system now at Elphinstone Secondary school. It was revealed  that students attending the  morning sessions were quite  happy about their school hours  but those in the afternoon would  be   willing  to   change   to   the  school could be "handled on/ a  shift basis while remaining  classes would revert to normal  morning and afternoon sessions.  Chairman Hay recommended  to chamber members that they  do all they can to see that the  referendum is passed so schools  would obtain what is actually required. Each member should  get out and help, he added.  Chairman Hay also pleaded for  stronger support for the chamber  of the next year. New members  were required so a nominating  committee would have a wider  selection of members from which  a strong executive "could bo  formed.  Next meeting of the Chamber  will be on Monday Dec. 1 at  Cedars Inn when the nominating committee will present a  new slate of officers who will  take over at the turn of the  year.  FISH can help  Some people in Gibsons area  have decided to do something  about the problems created by  our growing urban environment  and they're aiming. to combat  the cold impersonality with a  little neighborly interest.  To this end they have formed  a group called FISH, continuing  the FISH movement which started in England several years ago  and which spread to the U.S. and  Canada. An advertisement on  page four outlines the Gibsons  area activity/.  The hamie FISH may puzzle  yoii. ItK goes back to the fish  symbol used, by 'Christians'"to  identify each other and to avoid  detection by the Rbmafts who  were ^intent <m-throwing them  to^the^liohsV Todays FISH members' lions are the coldness and  lack, of neighborliness .-in; our  society, so they want to promote the; closeness and7friendship that existed in that early  group. ..,,-.',- ..-=..  ���FISH members in a Burnaby  organization are untrained, ordinary people who try to help in  their community. Some of the  services provided are rides for  ?  you:  the elderly, emergency family  care, emergency transportation'  and reading for the blind.  Most of the Burnaby calls have  been from lonely people who  just need someone to talk to.  It's amazing the number of  men and women who don't even  know their neighbors, they have  discovered.  There have also been callers  who know that FISH can't solve  their probems but want to know  which agency or organization to  see.

Their clear dulcet tone was  refreshing and from the first  number to the last they were  quite happy with, their accord  between themselves and their  audience of all ages. There were  some former choirs boys in the  audience long past hitting the  right note and the right time  who ' were just as * thrilled as  were the novice singers who  came to hear a combined choir  revel in music.     r  One number was repeated���  Do you hear what I hear��� arid  in spite, of dire warning from  the: director it might not be as  good, was for most of the audience even better.  Mr. Forbe's accounts of the  choir's experiences travelling in  the Old world this summer were  extremely interesting and revealed the great warmth which  developed between the boys and  their hearers. Choir singing in  some of Europe's great cathedralsy captivated their listeners  to. the point where Mr. m Forbes  intimated, they would be" doubly  welcome on a return trip including a tour through Russian centres*^  Ed. Burritt, representing the  Sunshine Coast Arts council read  a letter from leaders of the Brno  choir which visited Gibsons this  year.

Ken   Goddard   as  chairman. Aid. Goddard (explained  that he  was   appointed by  Mayor Wally Peterson to get a  Centennial committee organized  ' Mayor Peterson urged the meet-.  -ing to get down to business' as.  soon as possible and pick a project and get to work on it.  Aid. Goddard was chosen com- ���  mittee chairman with Ross Gib-'  son   as   vice-chairman.   Karen  Archer is secretary and Municipal l Clerk   David    Johnston,  treasurer.  As soon as the committee gets  itself organized and reports to  Victoria it will receive in return information it will require  to get Centennial project wheels  in motion. Aid. Goddard said he  had already received a couple  of letters "defining projects, one  concerning the proposed Sunshine Coast Recreation CentTe,  and the other outlining a library  museum complex in Giibsons.  The next meeting will be held  at the Municipal Hall Dec. 3  starting at 7:30 p.m.  Four bylaws  given readings '  . 'Four bylaws were before Gibsons municipal council ;at -its  Nov. . 12  meeting and two   re--  ^-'ceived'. final>- readings-^ahdUJthe^.  ~* others three readings. ~ .  The" two given final readings  . concerned one to set up an advance poll for the Sat., Dec. 6  municipal election. The advance  poll at the Municipal hall will  be opened from two to eight ,  p.m., Tuesday Dec. 2. The other  was one which raises the interest  rate on past due taxes when  paid, from six to seven percent.  Bylaws given three readings  included one enabling the council to allow the public tomake  prepayment on their taxes. Pre-:  payment starts Jan. 1 and ends.  ; towards the mid-May and allows  the village to pay six percent  interest on such taxes; Last year  close to $3,000 was prepayed.  This year, the second year  in operation it is expected that  more taxpayers will take advantage of the idea.  The other bylaw concerned a  tax exemption " for the B.C.  Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation which owns the building in,  which Ron Brackett is the pro-,  prietor of a shoe repair shop.  7  Babas on tour  A party attended by some  50 friends took place at the Baba7  home on Saturday when Robert  and Ronnie Baba entertained in  honor of their parents who left-  Vancouver by plane on Nov. 16  to visit Japan and witness the  the Olympics.

T�� those anticipating they will set the world on fire if they  manage to get elected' to the school board, dispel the idea immediately. With "Victoria keeping the financial reins very tight on  educational affairs, the headaches definitely should not cause a  rush for aspirants to trusteeship on the school board. However, this  being a democratic world in which we live, there are some brave  soiils who are going to try;  ���Municipallythere will 7be a fight for the mayoralty in Sechelt  withtwo hats already in thering. Three aldermen will have to be  elected. In Gibsons there will be the mayor's chair at stake with  one vacant-aidermanic seat and two endK)f-term aldermen probably,  seeking^re-eiectiori. For the vacant one year aidermanic seat there  areapparentiy:t^y,o men who riiay have their hats in the ring for  voting day, Dec.1 6.  This year all members of the Regional District board step  down so that the proper sequence of elections can be set up. The  six rural seats from Pender Harbour to Langdale will be wide open~  with half the seats for one year candidates and the other half for  two year candidates. Seats, held by Gibsons and Sechelt councils  are filled by council appointments.  For the firsts year Regional District directors were appointed  and for the first election two years ago, all seats were vacated.  This year only half will be elected for two years and the other, half  for-one. year, so"there will be no chance of a completely new board  taking over after this year. f '  So with the election picture revealing greater magnitude than  in past years, the public should take note of how and where they  are affected. All are involved in the school board election; rural  people only in Regional District affairs and in Gibsons and Sechelt,  mayor and aidermanic elections plus for Gibsons a. vote on Sunday  entertainment.  iSo, dear public, start sorting things out now and don't forget to  get out and vote on-Dec. 6. Do not have later regrets that you  should have voted.  Wage settlements through July, August and '. September  brought an average annual base  rate increase of 7.9 percent, according to statistics analysed by  the Canada Department of labor.  Settlements in the second  quarter of the year resulted in a  7.7 percent increase. .  Contracts covering bargaining  units of 500 employees and over,  with exclusion of all m the construction industry, are examined. ^  There were 76 such settlements  in the third quarter, affecting  the wage rates of approximately  197,385 employees.  Annual average increase for  settlements signed during the  third quarter of 1968^ was 8.5  percent. .;.'.. ';'7 :���.-.  Twenty-five of the 1969 third  quarter settlements analysed  covered 39,570 employees in'  manufacturing, and provided  base rate increases - averaging  9.3 percent. The average increase in the second quarter was  8.7 percent.  The  51   settlements   covering  157,815 employees "outside manufacturing provided for an average increase of 7.4 percent, the  same as in the second quarter.  The impact of the 76 new settlements,   when   taken   in   con-  . junction with the wage provisions of existing contracts, sets  the annual base rate increase at  6.6 percent, or 15.5 cents an b��ur  for the 12 months ended September 30, and 3.9 percent during  the preceding 12 month period.  Deflating the wage increase by  the Consumer Price Index increase, the average hourly base  rate increased in real terms by  2.0 percent during the period  ended September 30, 1969, and  by 2.4 percent during the period  ended a year earlier.  Contributing  to  these   yearly  figures is the coining into-effect  of  second and third stage in- :  creases in contracts negotiated  in 1967 and 1968. -  Again the analysis is restricted to those agreements covering  bargaining units of 500 workers  or more, excludingythose in eon-  , struction. There were 636 such  agreements in force as of September 30, 1969, covering approx-  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  Safe Driving Week  Traffic deaths during Safe Driving Week have been consistently lower than the toll taken by traffic colM-dbns during the remaining weeks of December. The December 1-7 period has become recognized as the yearly period when the attention of Canadians is  concentrated on the need to prevent accidents.  The question raised by many observers is why the reduction  of traffic deaths during the,campaign can't be sustained throughout the year. .  The Canada Safety Council says .the answer comprises education, engineering and enforcement with the main emphasis on education. The council promotes defensive driving as the proven technique to reduce traffic accidents, a method doubling the motorist's chances of avoiding an'accident.  PUBLIC HEARING  ZONING BY-LAW No. 92  Take notice that the ICouncil of the Corporation of the  Village of Sechelt, will hold a Public Hearing at the Municipal Hall, Sechelt, at the hour of 7:30 p.m. on the 3rd Day  of December 1969, under provisions pf (the Municipal \Acjfc, to  consider the proposed rezoning of property described as:  That portion of Block 7, D.L. 303 and 304, GP. 1, (N.W.D.

Originally it. was felt that 15 7  communities might compete in ���  20 sports. Today over 60 communities are making active preparation to compete in 50 sports  while associated pageants and  cultural events are legion.

STABLE  INDUSTRY  ,-.-. The forest Indus try of British  Columbia had its beginnings dur-  the period 1778 to 1788. The industry, at first was concerned  chiefly with spars for ships.  Construction, on the first sawmill ever erected in what is now  British Columbia commenced in  January. 1848. The site chosen  was Millstream at the head pf  Esquimalt Harbor and on November 24, 1848 the first lumber  was sawn.  10  YEARS   AGO  Margaret Ve/ale, Trudy Preuss  and John 'Trueman were awarded $100 bursaries by Gibsons  Canadian  I.egion.  Gibsons Board of Trade  named William Wright to head  a committe to look into a water  supply for the Sunshine Coast.  As a result of a storm fishermen in Gibsons harbor report  they are not too happy with the  breakwater and are expecting  improvements will be made.  The dress of students at Elphinstone school will come up  for discussion at a PTA meeting along with a talk on report  cards.  15 YEARS   AGO  St. John's church in Wilson  Creek was fe-dedicated as a  United Church.

Identification of problem areas will require comprehensive  studes and investigations and we  must appreciate that, in many  instances,; it has yet to be. as-,  certained whether the hazard  caused by the -pollutant is one  that affects such factors as  health, recreation, - economics,'  etc. ;v:  , Therefore, it is evident in this  field of pollution, control, too,  that we again will be. faced with  the necessity Of considering each  case individually. '  However, whatever the final  definitions of the problem, the  government intends;to continue  its drive for effective pollution  control in every natural envir:  onment. :-::":- J  This is the last of three art-,  icles by the Hon. -Ray'Will-,  istdri, minster of lands, f or: .  ests, and water resources  on the subject of pollution  control in the province's expanding pulp and paper industry:  In niy opening remarks at the  beginning of this series, I said  that it is expected to have every  pulp mill in. British Columbia  operating under a pollution control permit by the end of 1970.  The only reason this situation  will not, exist earlier is because  it is essential that a mill take  inventory of the quantity and  quality of its effluent before it  can properly make; application  for a permit������and these inventories take time. 7:  ��� The pollution control branch  of the British Columbia Water  Resurces Service has been contacting mills in border of priority based- on their impact on  their local environment. .The  branch has contacted 7 all mills  not  already under perrriit and  , the necessary���'���effluent inventories now are being made.  1 should point out that the gov-  , eminent recognizes that interior mills frequently are faced  with different cost considerations  than coast mills in establishing  pollution control equipment and  MAVERICK ��� FALCON ��� FAIRLANE ��� MUSTANG ��� T-BIRDS  ��� I  ��� mm  H  I  V)  ��  Eh  I  I  8  For  Personal  Service  E.

I  9  ALSO Al  SELECTED USED CARS  meeting standards set .down in  their respective pollution control  permits. One . of the reasons,  which I mentioned in an earlier  column; is that most coast mills'  enjoy the benefit of flushing action of tidal waters.  These cost considerations  must, of course; be borne in-  mind in the establishment of  - new interior mills which, after  all, have to manufacture their  product on a. competitive basis,  whether ifc be foi- the local, national  or  internat'idnal 'market..'  The; cost  of   producing   Ihe  commodity therefore is frequently, influenced by millysite location in the province and is one of  the  reasons  provincial authorities: pay particular attention to  the   "pollutiori   .control-������-requirements'and,  w^ of  each mill rather than simply applying an oyerall set of pollution control permit requirements  which y would Ignore' ithe   exis-  terise  of a '';.;yariarice';\:^;'':':'coridi-,i-'  'tions ������^e^n^h^ion^i0y--^^::^  .

The occasion  was a public meeting in Wilson  Creek Community Hall, and the  topic was gravel mining. Three  members of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board were on hand to  tell the; people the facts about  the two gravel mines proposed  for this area. f V  The hoard members iold tis  that Sechelt Sand and!

There will be  a man-made island, complete  with docking, loading facilities  etc. The land to he mined will  -be purchased by Construction  Aggregate, and will be developed as a suib-division in the future. The total area involved for  both companies is aibout 20 sq.  ,'mi.  .- V" .;'������'.���' ���",'���"���..'.'  After digesting this information, the "nuts" started asking  questions.  One wanted to know if the  companies would continue to  mine; gravel as long as they  were making money, and how  much igravel there is on the  Sunshine Coast. The regional  board, member conceded there's  a lot more than 20 sq. mi.  Another nut jumped up and  asked about the problem of erosion. It seems the companies  have admitted there could be a  problem with erosion.  It then developed that if Sechelt Sand and Gravel uses the  Trail Bay loading: facilities, this  would mean a 24 hr. a day operation. How the gra^ to be  conveyed from Porpoise Bay to  the Sechelt waterfront was not  divulged.-.'"  To give you an- idea of how  ridiculous some people, can be,'  some of the radical memlbers of  the: audience ^mentioned' that -  they had spe-jt a lifetime working for a homeland had chosen  to live on the penihsulabecause  of its natural beauty.

However,  we could always set up vigilante  committees to keep watch on  our natural resources.  Anyway, after all this preliminary nonsense, a way-out  maniac asked what the people  would gain from the gravel  mines. The board memiber replied that; mores people would  move into 7 the area, which  means more money. The ^ember was then asked was it not  a possibility that some people  would move out of the area arid  others:would change their plans  about coming in: The regional,  board member allowed1 this was  a possibility..      -  Next a memiber of the audience reminded the board that a  v petition opposing gravel mining  and sighed by 130 people had  been submitted to the Sunshine  Coast Reigional Board. A board  member replied that the petition had been disregarded, as it  was based on hearsay. Aren't all  petitions based on hearsay? For  that matter, aren't all politicians  elected on hearsay? Are we then  to conclude that those in power  -have the right to over-rule the  results of a democratic election  if, in their opinion, the people  were mis-informed through hear  say? :,:  Anyway, to end this fool's  tale, here's the deal. The gravel  companies have shown just  cause why they want in. Money.  We are told we must show just  cause to keep them out.  The   conclusion   reached   by  this "rait" is that people don't  count.       MARY GROSS,  ��� Sechelt.

However in the free-for-all  comment which followed Mayor Peterson said he was of the  opinion the Sechelt Secondary  school was no selling point in the  referendum. All agreed ' that  what the school board had, in  mind generally was far better  than the present rabbit hutches  (portable classrooms of which  the taxpayer had to bear the annual rental costs.) It was explained by the trustees that the  grants .covering. Indian pupils  would be deducted.from the, total of the referendum.       :     *'"  Questions were asked respecting the $57,000 that had been  included in a previous referendum for an administrative building for the board. Trustees explained that' the government  would not allow; them to proceed with this and that the  sum was still Ton the records  (to be drawn in actual cash as  required). The question why unused funds were not used for  othed projects drew from the  school trustees that they did  not want to do this as it works  against them in future cases.  - (There is the feeling that money  for something at Madeira Park  and used somewhere else because of a changing situation  left repercussions which did not  help the next referendum)/  Included iri the referendum  but not discussed was the sum  of $107,600 for acquiring and  developing sites and $229,600 for  furnishing and (Equipping buildings for school purposes.

Take notice that Frank, Eric  Appelbe of Vancouver, B.C., occupation advertising manager,  intends to apply for a lease of  the following described lands:���'  Commencing at a post planted  in- above mentioned bay thence  300 feet north; thence 100 feet  east; thence 300 feet south;  thence along shoreline approx.  100 feet and containing two-  thirds acres, more or less.  The   purpose   for   which   the  lease is required is recreational.  FRANK ERIC APPELBE  Dated Octoiber 13th, 1969.  Nov. 5, 12, 19, 26  the conditions are intolerable.  We have hardly spoken for years  except to quarrel. He won't  leave our house because if he  does he knows I can.force him  to support me. I won't leave  because if I do he won't have  to support me. We have been  married 24 years and I have no  particular trade to earn a living by. Neither one of us can  get the other on aduLtry, alcoholism, cruelty, etc. Is there  any answer?  A: Yes��� unless you want to  go on living in hell��� compromise. If he deserted, you would  be entitled to about a third of  his income! If you desert, you  are entitled to nothing.'We recommend you do three things:  (1) Suggest to him a separation  agreement in which he pays you  a sixth of his income���this will  be meeting him half way, (2)  sell your house and divide the  proceeds���either of you can  force such a sale anyway, and  (3) Obtaim at least part time  employment - in some unskilled.  capacity. With the funds from  these three sources, you should  be able to live quite nicely.At.  any rate, anything would be  better than the way you are living now.

He has a good job but  won't support me unless I go  and live with him. Is there anyway the law protects me?  A: Yes���sue for a judicial separation. The grounds are aduLtry or desertion for two years  or cruelty. The usual ancillary  remedies . follow���alimony, etc.  A judicial separation is similar  to a divorce but the parties  cannot remarry.  Q:  I signed a separation agreement that my wife's -lawyer,  drew   up  agreeing  to  pay her  $300 a month. I am a salesman  and   was  making  good / money  then. Now my commissions have  dropped.  She always knew my  income  varied.   Her  lawyer  is  threatening to sue and garnish  my salary, and if I.had to pay  $300 a month, I couldn't live on  the  balance.  Don't   tell   me   I  should have consulted my own  lawyer at the time���I know that  now.  A: We don't see much rope  for yoii but you should consult  your own lawyer now. He will  try to work something out. lie  will probably take- the position  that the written agreement was  subject to a qualification, that  it was always understood that  the $300 a month was subject to  a reduction corresponding to  vour income. A clause to this effect should, of cO/Ursef, have  been in the original agreement. ���  A new system to be introduced  next   October   by the   Canada  Post Office will provide complete  privacy and save time for the.  millions of Canadians who pur-  Under the hew system, an im-  chase post office money orders,  printing machine will enter such  items as date and amount, with  the personal details to be filled  ,in by the purchaser in privacy  and at a time most convenient  to him or her.

Here they were,  broad, rounded, dull green bare  mountains not impressive as in  Ecuador and Peru. Jack cheer-  ��� fully informed us that busloads  of people sometimes careened  over them, killing all. Then they  would be stripped clean of watches, money, jewelry etc. by  the nearby villagers. But he  reassured us there were no longer the hold-ups and mass slaughter of busloads" as there were  in the 1950's.

Yesterday was a long  day in which David and I covered much ground most of it  very mountainous.

We passed through a  long valley, the continuation of  the Cauca, with mountains to the  west.

"Ipiales    airport    was    most  charming    with    hard   packed  gravel runway and small brown  #md     white      brick     building  amongst high green shrubs."

Gone  were the pickpockets arid slums  .��and debilitating heat and hum-  ; ility of   the  tropical   lowlands.  Life. here seemed more simple  and secure and the pace slower.  We breathed more deeply in  the thin sierra air as we walked  slowly over to the taxi area A  taxi took us to Ipiales where the  sidewalks were lined with brown  and    grey    ponchoed    Indians  awaiting a long stream of bicycle racers who we passed on  the dusty road in.  Quite amusing��� a big stream  of cars from the; airport, keeping constantly and diving in and  out , appearing and disappearing out of and into clouds of dust  and bicycle riders  intent only  on the race, puri-ping away.     .  We   reached the   Ecuadorian  border but couldn't pass as the  exit stamp was back in lpiaies,  so we waited about an hour for  our taxi to return arid take us  back.  While  waiting the young  customs official, a Medicine student   from  Bogota,   showed  us  around.

He whistled at them but they  were unperturbed. Later, over  coffee, he said he was unhappy  in Ipiales because there' were  too many Indians and too slow  a pace, unlike the fast living  and better women of his beloved  Bogota. ^  Finally we got our stamp and  got into Tulcan, Ecuador, to the  Quito���bound bus. On boarding  the bus, we committed ourselves to a tiring ten hour journey. I reluctantly hauled my  packsack up on the roofrack  .(ney/ to me) but -it arrived safely..
