 Proyinolal Library,  ���Vl'Q&or��k:+y&,yC:* :Y,  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number   18,   May, 2,   1968.  10c per cop>  SchoolI rate up 4.35 mills  Good crowd at  Bill 33 debate  Close to 100 persons attended  the debate Tuesday night in  Gibsons Legion hall on the provincial government'ls controversial Bill 33. The meeting was  orderly except for one or two  guffaws on hearing certain  statements from Herb Bruch,  MLA.-' -"��� Y      --.-; ��� 'i\  ��� ".'  Mr.   Bruch  was  the government defender of this legislation  which labor argues is a menace  to; its existence. Ernest Freer,  president of IWA Local-1-71 and  Ray Haynes, secretary-treasurer  of the B.C. Federation of Labor  presented    labor's     argument.  /Frank Fuller, director of adult  education for this school district  was chairman.  '   Mr. Freer opened' wjith background   history   of   the,   union  movement. Mr. Bruch followed  with his review of the growth of  labor legislation in the province.  Mr. Haynes got right down to  the controversial side of the legislation. The crux of the labor  argument was how does the gov  eminent mean to decide on what  is  public interest and welfare  ivhen it comes to deciding when  to step into a strike situation,  r Labor speakers asked why so  much legislation against labor  with very little legislation im-  josed  on  the  other side.  Mr.  Bruch argued that government  would  have  no base  to  work  Tom if it had ho labor Iegisla-  ;ion.  Numerous questions were ask-  Jd at the dose of the debate  md most of them were pointed,  giving Mr. Bruch more exper-  ence in the'field of agile think-  ng. \   " /  W lining up  This bevy of Japanese gowned Gibsons beauties added color  .o the Gibsons United Church UCW potluck luncheon Thursday  of last week in the church hall when Rev.

Thatcher, secretary; Eric Prittie, treasurer and  Mrs. N. Hill, memberships.  Due to earlier commitments  covering the next two months,  Mr. Thatcher will take the president's place. Anyone desiring  to join the club can contact any  memiber of the executive.  The next club meeting will  .e held Sunday, May 5. at 7:30  ;>,m. at the home of Eric Prit-  ie, Orange road. Hartley Dent  s the NDP candidate for Coast-  2hilcotin riding and he has the  ull support of the local NDP  organization.  Due to overcrowding as a 35  bed unit, St. Mary's Hospital  bed capacity has been raised to  52 by the new administrator, A.  W. Wagemakers. The hospital  will be^accepted by BCHIS officials in' Victoria on a 52 bed  .. basis.  This was announced at Monday night's; annual meeting of  St. Mary's Hospital society by  E. W. Booth, president, who also  pointed out that last year the  financial deficit amounted to  $677 compared to $5,041 the previous year. He also announced  this year's hospital district mill  rate will be reduced from 1.15  for 1967 to M for this year.  Trustee J. E. Parker commenting on the small deficit termed  it a remarkable figure as most  hospitals were working on a  much larger deficit. It was also  announced that the membership  of the society now totals 189.  The meeting was held in the Sechelt Legion hall.  Four retiring trustees were reelected, Norman Franklin, J. E.  Parker, A. J. Rutherford and  Frank West; Mrs. E. Moscrip  was chosen as a trustee repre-  . senting the co-ordinating committee of the hospital auxiliaries  Directors following the annual  meeting elected Mr. Booth to  remain as president with Bob  Norminton as vice-president and  A. J. Rutherford continuing as  treasurer. Secretary of both  meetings was Mrs. H. Gray.  Mr. E. W. Booth, president of  the hospital society expressed  thanks to all who have helped  to make 1967 the success it has  been, particularly administration, the medical staff, the auxiliaries, the Hospital Improvement District No. 31 during its  time in office, local clubs and  residents who have donated so  generously finances and time.  The following interesting statistics undoubtedly prove the  great nee<_ for the existence of  this hospital and more than justifies the need for expansion: In  1966 the occupancy rate was  '87.5%, and at the time of this  report is in excess of 118%.  The normal occupancy level is  regarded as 86%, Thus we have  ample proof of the great need  for additional bed accommodation, and while this subject is  fully covered in Mr. J. E. Parker's report, I would like to assure you that the board of trustees has taken all possible action to achieve this objective.  Landscaping of ho s pi ta 1  grounds is being carried out  with caution in view of our anticipated expansion.  The financial statements will  be of interest and I should like  to draw attention to the 67.4%  paid out for salaries and wages.  This figure is below the average  for hospitals in British Columbia which is approximately 70-  72%.  Mr. J. E. Parker, hospital expansion and construction committee chairman said the year  1967 saw our plans for expansion of our present hospital facilities finalized to our satisfaction followng numerous meetings with our architects and  BCHIS officials in Victoria.  Many delays and changes of  plans were necessitated due to  the limited information available regarding acceptable planning for extended care. It is  somewhat unusual to have extended care and acute care facilities operating as a single  unit, hence our planning had to  be done on the premise that  within five years or so, the extended care unit we are presently planning will be converted  to acute care, at which time we  will have to provide a separate  building for extended care on  an adjoining location.  At the present time our plans  and estimates are before BCHIS  officials in Victoria. We are  awaiting their acceptance and  approval to go to working drawings preceding the calling of  tenders.  Optimistically, with no blocks  being thrown, we could be ready  to go to tender this fall. To be  more realistic, we should be  well along with construction at  this time next year.  It is almost a certainty that a  (Continued on Page 4)  This year's district school  tdx will be 4:35 mills higher  than last year. Total mill rate  will ibe 34.98 against 30.63 for  last year.  Sechelt's taxable assessment  of $1,601,402 will provide $56,-  012  . Gibsons taxable assessment of  $2,571,927   w'll   provide   $89,928.  .Ths rural area with taxable  assessment of $41,227,925 will  provide $1,587,869.  This. will result on the.school  district's taxable assessment  providing a total tax of $1,587,-  SG9.  Offsetting some of this taxation will be the provincial government homeowner grant which  is $130 this year. Another angle  is that Canadian Forest Products   will   be   paying  approxi  mately 45 percent of the school  tax. This will mean the average homeowner will pay about  half or less of the total assessment.  Explaining how the new education- finance formula would  affect School Boards in 1968,  the Hon. L. R. Peterson/minister of education, said the net  result would mean an average  increase of only 1.19 mills across  the province and, because .of  the increase in the home owner  grant, many residential property owners would not feel  even this nominal increase.  In explaining how,the school  boards would be able to finance  a $36.5 million increase in their  1968 gross budgets and yet only  require a modest increase in  the  province-wide average  mill  Query new school  Editor; Before the establishment of a completely new secondary school at Sechelt is considered as an inevitable development, I believe more information should be available  to the taxpayers and the general population. The school-  board takes the stand that since  they have been chosen by the  people, they should be entrusted with the planning without  too much interference.  Certainly the school board  must decide on what they consider is the best program, but  I believe they should communicate as fully as possible with  the parents and taxpayers. I  believe they should be able to  justify the decisions made and  show why various possible alternatives are. harj^  oimcYor "impo__^blev _$ey also  must do this in order to get  the required votes for the  money bylaws and increased  taxes.  With regard to the establishment of the senior secondary  school might this not be presented as a fairly detailed report? It could give information  on the following:  .. (1) The increase of population of hgh school age in the  different areas of School District No. 40 and the addition of  rooms-and teachers required.  (2) The cost of the new rooms  k and  of   the new   library,   new  laboratories  and equipment.  (3) Show how the proposed  plan of a senior Sechelt secondary school would best provide  for the required.expansion both  in the immediate future and  later.,.  (4) Show what alternate methods or means might be used  to provide the required training and what the disadvantages  would be,  (5) Show what would happen  if no increased building program were undertaken and an  attempt were made to continue  as at present.  Reports could also be provided from an outside authority  as to what is the best program  for secondary school expansion  in this school district.  The essential consideration is  that the children of this area  receive a training and enjoy a  school environment equivalent  to the best available so that  when they have completed the  course they - will know they  have an equal status and opportunity with any other B.C.  students.  The next consideration is that  the proposed program be one  which permits of further expansion without too much tearing down and rebuilding.  Another consideration is the  location of the buildings to  minimize unnecessary bus  transportation;  The other unavoidable consideration is that of keeping  down costs.  Some arguments against the  plan of a new separate senior  secondary at Sechelt which  come to mind are as follows:  (1) It will mean that the ma  jority of the senior secondary  school enrollment will have to  come in by*a rather long bus  ride from the area of greater  population in the Gibsons district. The number of homes  with teen age children is" likely  tp increase in the Gibsons area  as this is closer to the main  industry at Port Mellon.  (2) Certain rooms and equipment already present at Elphinstone such as the library and  laboratory will have to be built  again  at  great  extra   expense.  (3) This program will split  the school into two parts. Will  this be a disadvantage? Will  it ibe harmful to school unity  and school spirit? - Will the new  school be. entirely separate?  Will the YElpbinstpne , name, "be.;  retained?, ; Y^ y^- ^uY;  "(4) 'Some~ "Gibsons ~feln&enls  may consider that Elphinstone  as we now know it will be downgraded and object to this.  (5) Is this senior secondary  school arrangement expected to  be permanent?  Will the  senior  ' students of the Gibsons area  always have to make this bus  trip?  (6) It has been stated that a  senior secondary school will be  needed in Gibsons at some time  in the future when an increased population makes this necessary. Should not this expansion  be planned for now? Sufficient  land area in Gibsons will then  eventually be necessary and  should be considered and planned for now.  These are some of the points  in the school building program  which I feel have not been fully  explained and discussed. I hope  we will have more information  and communication on these  important matters. ��� H. Inglis.  Three burned  Three persons burned in an  explosion on a cabin craft about  2 a.m. Saturday morning are in  St. Mary's Hospital and in fairly satisfactory condition according to reports Wednesday.  Trapped in the craft's cabin  when the explosion took place  were Dave Geoghegan and Dave  Maw of Gibsons and a young  woman, Jackie Bannister. A  rourth person on the craft, Dean  Hobson, escaped burns at the  time of the explosion and fire  by leaping into the water.  The craft was on its way from  Plowder Bay to Port Mellon  when the accident oceured.  Power outage  To make improvements to the  electrical power system in the  rural area west of Gibsons  B.C. Hydro announces a power  outage for Sunday, May 5, from  7 to 9 a.m. The area to be affected will be the Sunshine  Coast highway from North road  to Pratt road including Park,  Payne, Pratt, Shaw and Gower  Point roads also Chaster road  also known as Honeymoon  Lane.  rate, the minister pointed out  the provincial government had  raised the basic education program , which is shareable, by  $64.6 million over 1967. The effect of this "is that a far greater amount of school district  costs is being supported by the  resources of the province as a  whole, and not limited to the  resources of the individual  school districts. On the other  hand, increased assessment  values throughout the province  will make the local tax levies  more productive. The net result is a $36.5 million expansion  fin the gross budgets with a  modest average mill rate increase.  The average mill rate, inclusive of operating and capital  expenses, on a province - wide  basis is computed to be 31.21  mills for 1968 as compared with  30.02 mills for 1967.  One-third of school districts  will have a decrease in local  school taxes. The others will  have increases ranging from  zero to a high of 4y2 mills in a  few isolated instances, dependent upon the particular circumstances - in those districts.  Mr. Peterson said further  that the increases in local  school taxes for 1968 are extremely nominal in view of the  increases in school district  budgetting. For example, school  district budgetting for teachers"  salaries, which represent some  70% of their- operating costs,  increased from $142,085,397 in  1967, to $163,615,380 in 1968��� an  increase of $21,529,983 or 15.2%  which is the equivalent of 4.14  ;mills. Y 7..'Y  Y This, increase' represents not  only YtheY employment of additional teac.^^^ as a  result of increased pupil enrol-  . ment, it also represents sub-  .: stantial increases in actual  salaries paid.  In conclusion, Mr. Peterson  said that the provincial government is doing everything possible to assist school districts  and local taxpayers meet the  rising costs of education. He  pointed out that due to the increase from $120 to $130 in the  home owner grant, coupled  with the decrease in school  taxes in some school districts  a great many residential property owners will find themselves having to pay less, and  many no more, in school taxes  in 1968 than in 1967.  Seek location  With the announcement of  federal and provincial grants  for the senior citizens project  at Sechelt, housing for the elderly in that area will become a  reality. Many such projects  have been established in the  large and small communities  in the province. Here, on the  coast where we are blessed  with a favorable climate such  accommodation will undoubtedly be popular.  Currently, at Giibsons, a committee of the Kiwanis Club is  actively looking into various  locations to establish a similar  government assisted project in  the general Gibsons area where  many of our senior members  have chosen to reside. Such  projects, integrated with the  community in which people  have a desire to spend their  golden years deserve the assistance of all concerned.

Hon. Dan Campbell, minister of municipal affairs is striving to  bring about a form of togetherness in his plan for regional districts  and is meeting with some success. Now ihe has come up with a new  campaign, labelled LAYMAN GO, outlined elsewhere on this page.  It is a campaign which has merit but scoffers will have a field day  with it. ���' - '  His final question among the 20, which summarizes his objectives, asks this: Has your community organized itself in such a  way as to feel happy with the development of not only its physical  resources but if its human resources by providing an environment  in wihich the activities of your professonal inventory is co-ordinated  with the ability of your lay citizens, in common cause?  The word organized is the problem in his question. This community is organized to the hilt in small segments that are unable  to get together to work for the common betterment of the community. The history of the Sunsbfine Coast as experienced by the  writer over 14 years can point to one solid result in that time and  that was the building of St. Mary's Hospital on Indian donated  land in Sechelt area. Even this produced a battle royal with Pender Harborites but the rest of the community was united for the  hospital.  Mr. Campbell should consider some of the recent-changes  achieved in the Municipal Act. Take for instance extending the  franchise to both tenant and resident electors. Ostensibly this came  about because of the lack of togetherness exhibited by the hard  core of voters, a population minority, who do not like to have their  status quo disturbed. He also arranged that local municipal!government can embark how on major sewage, water and drainage pro-  jects without consent of the electors. Extra taxation is never liked  but sewers, water and drainage are necessities.  It is too bad that similar leeway in government cannot be extended to schoor boards under their present circumstances. Perhaps Mr. Campbell should become minister of education?  To get back to Mr. Campbell's considered changes, can he  come up with a solution to the disorganized form of organization  we are experiencing on the Sunshine Coast and most likely elsewhere? If he has such a solution, Gibsons area would like to find  out if it would work. Over the last several years there has been  talk of a coimmunity eM> for Gibsons, taking in representatives  from all organizations to work for the common good. We need it.  Perhaps if Mr. Campbell could come up with a (benevolent dictator with a yelvet glove and a big stick, his LAYMAN GO proposal might be effective. Otherwise hope will be slight.  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  Q. A number of readers have  asked about obtaining free legal  advice.  Legal services without a fee  are provided by the B.C. law  society to which all lawyers belong. There are two ways of  obtaining this ��� through the  legal aid plan and through the  criminal legal aid plan.  Each local bar association  will have different arrangements and should be applied to,  but the legal aid plan in Vancouver is typical. In Vancouver,  the applicants appear at the  main court house at 8 p.m.  each Wednesday evening. They  are interviewed by a committee of three junior lawyers and  are screened to determine their  eligibility. They must swear an  affidavit concerning their income and assets.  If these are small, they will  be directed to a lawyer who  will handle their case including a trial if necessary, without  a fee. They must, however, pay  any expense such as court recorder's fees, process server's  fees and court registry fees for  issuing a summons ��� from $10  ��� 20. In practice, most applicants have simple problems  that can be answered on the  spot by the members of the  committee. Legal aid will not  be.supplied for divorces.  A representative of the Salvation Army tours the Vancou  ver jail each morning and applicants for criminal legal aid  may giye him their names.  These are passed on to the  chairman of the criminal legal  aid committee of the law society and they are screened for  financial  eligibility.  Applicants must also pass the  five year rule, that is. must  not have been convicted and  imprisoned during the previous  five years. If eligible, the applicant has a lawyer assigned who  will handle his case without a  fee. If the charge is a serious  one such as murder, the lawyer  appointed is usually well experienced in such matters. The  five year rule does not apply  to serious cases, e.g., murder,  manslaughter, rape, arson,  treason, habitual criminal  charges, or dangerous sexual  offender charges. The lawyer  is paid a small fee by the government. Lawyers are not required by the profession's code  of ethics to serve under these  schemes, but most lawyers regard it as a professional obligation.  There is also a lawyer referral plan. This exists to refer  clients who need a lawyer and  do not know one, to lawyers  who have agreed to serve on  the plan. The lawyer is allowed to charge $5 for the initial  interview and advice, etc. ���  after that the parties are on  their own. Application is to be  made to the local bar association.  The time has come to take  a complete inventory .of the  community resources which we  have developed in the" social  service field. We need to measure the present resources in  terms of both quality and quantity. We need to know if our  priorities are reasonable. We  have to find new ways to coordinate the professional and  lay activities in the social' service field. We need to make the  social service field everybody's  business. We need to ensure  that the development of our  physical' community assets are  balanced 'by the effective development of our social community environment.  Therefore, we are asking all  communities in British Columbia to spend some time on examining themselves. To keynote the emphasis needed here,  we are proposing that each  community ask itself the accompanying 20 questions. The results, we hope, will permit each  community to participate in  this year's theorie program  which is to be known as:  LAYMAN  GO  Sincerely,  Dan Campbell,  Minister  20   QUESTIONS   FOR   THE  COMMUNITY  1.

"If I take my application  form for Unemployment Insurance benefit to the local office  of the UIC instead of posting it,  can I get paid quicker?"  The answer is no. In fact the  new system under which application forms are mailed was  designed to speed up operations  with modern computer methods.  Calling at the office would be  a waste of your time. Your  benefits will be sent to you by  mail in any case.  Q. "The Canada Manpower  Centre has arranged for me to  take a course away from home  as the prospects of a new job  in my old trade are bad. I do  not qualify for training allowance. Do I qualify for unemployment insurance benefit if I cannot say I am available?"  Yes, if you are otherwise entitled and if your UIC office  has given you a formal direction to attend the course, you  can receive benefits.  Q. "This week the UIC office has not sent me the benefit warrant I expected. Why is  that?"  It could be for a number of  reasons. If payment is tetat-  porarily suspended, you should  receive an adjustment later, or  official advice why payment  has not been made.  gs  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  Tues. 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Thurs. 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Sat. 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Post Office Building Sechelt  Telephone  885-2333  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886-28121  K & E Towing  & Auto Salvage  ROBERTS CREEK, B.C.  24-HOUR SERVICE  Phone 886-2810  ^fv^S^iSiv' ���*S*fcv4��  V.V-VWV.-S    S V  vwiww  ��.s_  Business  Forms  CONTINUOUS REGISTER  CONTINUOUS CARBON  CARBON SNAPS   '.

This  is a question we are. oftefci  asked, and it is a good one.  The first step is to establish  the need for the accommodation. This is the responsibility  of the district superintendent  who must estimate the growth  in pupil population over the next  three years. Government regulation restricts us to a three-  year projection for any one  referendum.  The next step involves the  preparation of education specifications and initial discussions  with the architect. This is the  most important part of the entire procedure and may take  several months. Here we attempt to set out, guide lines  for the architect^ to describe  the school and its use as we7.  see it. It is not a matter of  saying to the architect we want  a school with 15 'teaching areas,  you produce some sketches. It's  for more complicated than this  and a lot of study is necessary  at this stage to save time later  on and to make sure that the  design when produced will be  functional and economical. This  initial study stage is done by  committee.  It may be necessary for the  board to consider a site for a  new school, or additions to existing schools. Again, 'this can  be time-consuming. A good site  may be available but it may  be too expensive and involve  negotiations With the owner.  Sometimes; a board may have  to resort to expropriation and  where this is necessary, legal  procedures can take up a good  deal of time.  Where a site has been selected the board may take an option on it.  This is approximately where  we are now ��� determining a  site for a possible new secondary school. Until this done,  the architect cannot go too far  with sketch plans, because the  nature of the site will determine  to some degree the kincl of  building that goes on it.  As 7soon as the site has been  determined, the architect can  go full speed ahead with sketch  plans and preparation of estimated building costs. These  have to be approved by Victoria and may have to be revised several times. This sketch  plan and estimating stage for.  a project like this will probably take two or three months.  It could take longer.  Once the department has accepted the sketches and estimates, the board may determine a referendum date.  After the ratepayers have approved the building program,  a one month's quashing period  is required by law during which  time any person can question  the conduct of the referendum.  The next step is the preparation of working drawings and  specifications. These must be  approved by the board and by  the department. The length of  this stage is mainly up to the  architect but it is estimated  that it will take another 2-3  months. When completed, the  board, with department permission again, may go to tender,  and a contract let to the lowest  bidder. Once the contract has  been let, we are really in the  hands of the bidder as far as  time is concerned. There are  so many things that can affect  the speed of construction, and  the board has little or no con-  NOTICE TO CREDITORS  DONALD   WILLIAM   WALKER  formerly of Roberts Creek, B.C.

If everything went right it  might be possible to complete  the school in six months. From  experience we know that this  is not likely to happen. With a  great deal of luck a school  could be ready some time in  the fall of 1969, but the board  is not very optimistic and it  will probably be some time in  1970 before we could move students into a completed, furnished, and equipped building.

The statistical report submitted oy the hospital administrator, A. W. Wagemakers, revealed that patients admitted during 1967 totalled 1,066, an increase of 164 over 1966. Patient  days totalled 11,509, an increase  of 324.  Births increase^ foy nine over  1966 totalling 192.

Approximately 275 delegates and  members arrived from Vancouver, White Rock and New Westminster in four chartered buses,  with several arriving from  Powell River by car. For many  of these ladies this was their  first trip to the Sunshine Coast,  and all were impressed by the  beauty of the area.  The convention opened shortly after 11 a.m. with the reading  of the auxiliaries' prayer led by  Mrs. Cotton, regional representative. The ladies were welcomed by the hospital administrator, Mr. A. Wagemaker, who  was not too much disturbed by  the fact he was the only man  present.  After the report on the past  years' activities, a panel discussion was led by Mrs. Grauer,  chairman, from the Richmond  General Hospital Auxiliary, on  the topic My Work as a Volunteer. Five of the delegates,  each from a different hospital,  told of their work as auxiliary  members, consisting of services  given to patients in the hospitals and raising funds to purchase equipment and supplies  for hospitals.  Mrs. Lowell, of the Holyf.  Family Hospital auxiliary told  of the much needed help given  to elderly and lonely patients  and of the efforts made to provide an atmosphere of friendliness. Services such as giving  entertainments, writing .letters,  feeding patients and' taking patients for drives are provided.  She said that efforts are being  made to interest more men and  more young people in this work.  Mrs. Magnusson of the auili-  ary to the ^Children's Hospital  in Vancouver, discussed the  work of her auxiliary as clerical workers, drivers,- services in  sewing and mending, and as -  "play ladies" to the children.  Mrs. Black of the Powell River auxiliary outlined the work  of the Economy Shop in that  , area. This shop was opened in  April, 1966, and has carried on  successfully since that date,  raising funds for the Powell River hospital and at the same  filling the need for low-cost serviceable . clothing and household items. Her talk was of  particular interest to the women of Our own area where a  Thrift Shop "has been in operation for the past 18 months;  The    morning    session    was  brought     to.   a  close by Mrs.  Browrilee of the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westmin-  . ster.

Benefits  of this  work  are two-fold  for members of this auxiliary-  making contribution to the community, and providing a feeling  of self-expression  and of being  needed, to the members them-  . selves.

With this in  mind, members of Roberts  Creek area made and packed  over 1,000 sandwiches, while  Gibsons members made delicious cookies and the Port Mellon group prepared individual  cups of jelly dessert. Pickles  and mints were added to the  boxes, and hot tea and coffee  were served.  Mrs. Joan Rowland of the  Roberts Creek Auxiliary was in  charge of the lunch. Members  of the Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, and Sechelt auxiliaries contributed greatly to the  success of the convention in  making the plans and helping  with the arrangements. Mrs.  Thomas of the Sechelt auxiliary  provided the lovely flowers for  the head table, and the decorations for the lunch boxes. Mrs.  Eve Moscrip, also of the Sechelt. auxiliary, was chairman  in charge of the convention and  in her usual capable manner attended to the may details of its  planning. From the many compliments received from the  visitors it was evident that the  auxiliaries of this area left little room for doubt that anything was lacking by way of  hospitality on the Sunshine  Coast.  After lunch, Mrs. Pattenden,  president of the British Columbia Hospital auxiliaries, outlin-.  ed   plans    for   Hospital    Week  4 Coast News, May 2, 1968.  which will be observed on May  5 through May 12. She stressed  that while we are willing to  work hard towards making  money for equipment for our  hospitals we must take steps  through our members of government to make them more  aware of the need for larger  government grants to the hospitals.  Mrs. Johnson, vice-president  of the national association, discussed plans for the Canad'an  National Association of Hospital  Auxiliaries convention in Vancouver, May 29, 30 and 31. Panel discussions on Membership  Involvement and Leadership  Training will offer a good deal  of help to all auxiliary members, and it is hoped that many  delegates from this area will  be a'ble to attend. The annual  provincial convention is to be  held at the Hotel Vancouver on  Oct. 15 through 18.  Following the election of Mrs.  Hewitt of St. Paul's Hospital  Auxiliary to the position of Regional Representative of Lower  Mainland Area, an interesting  film on the work of our most  outstanding Canadian doctors  was shown.  Since it was necessary that  the buses arrive in Langdale in  time to catch the 4:30 ferry, the  proposed tour of St. Mary's  Hospital had to be cancelled,  much to the great disappointment of most of those attending  the convention, especially the  local members who are so  proud of the hospital and its  staff.

In 1965, 33 boaters drowned .  in the lower gulf because they  took their vessel from an area  of good weather to one of adverse weather. As a result  meteorological office at the request of the B.C. Safety Council  co-ordinated four present condition weather reports daily  from lighthouses and yadrfields  from Comox to Victoria and  down the mainland coast. These  are assembled, transmitted im-  service to the radio stations  mediately by broadcast news  and put on the air. A forecast  is inserted if necessary.  In 1966, first year of the  broadcasts, one boat was lost  to weather during daylight saving time, with three people  drowned. Last year there were  no  drownings from this' cause.  The Safety Council has sent  posters to all marinas, marine  filling stations and boat clubs  on the lower gulf, showing the  times of broadcast. The council  urges, for safe boating:  Carry  a  radio  and listen to  the broadcasts.  Before you leave, make sure  someone at home knows your  destination and time due back.  Letters fo editor  Editor: In last weeks issue  of your paper I see a photograph of the new 30,000 gallon  tank for the Rock Gas Company  on the approach to the wharf  here. Their plans call for three  tanks so we will no doubt see  the third one landed with the  other two shortly.  You will remember a short  news note in your paper under  the heading Wharf to go. This  told us how this wharf here  was going to be dismanteled.  The note was given you by the  well-known Liberal at Gibsons  he got the news from the member of parliament for this riding, at the time. Neither one  was interested in seeing the approach and wharf put to good  use and the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce, in whose district  Roberts Creek is, were evidently quite unconcerned.  The minute I saw the news  item I wrote the member of  parliament and told him the  wharf was not going to be removed and requested him to  come and see me about it. Fortunately Dr. White of the University of B.C. was here when  he arrived so we three went  to look it over. After the other  two had made a good search  the member for the riding said  "I do not see why that wharf  should be pulled down."  Why then did he advise the  department of public works in  Ottawa to pull it down. The  approach and wharf were sold  for a good price, I know that,  I obtained the information confidentially. ��� B. L. Cope.  Wear a life jacket if the. sea  becomes rough: if you are in a  dingy or if you have to unsnarl the prop, stay with the  boat if you do overturn. Most  drownings occur from disregarding these measures.  Get    a    free copy of safety  afloat from B.C. Safety Council  also available at the Coast News  3 tick types  are dangerous  Of some 20 species of ticks  to be found in British Columbia  only three normally bite humans. Although their bites may  be painful and slow healing,  there is little danger.of disease  provided the tick is removed  promptly. Here are a few  simple rules to avoid paral-  7ysis.'. ������-=-������'._.'.-.'  Wear trousers or slacks tucked into boots when on outings  Or hikes in the  country.  Make daily examinations for  ticks, paying particular attention to the public region, the  base of the skull and the head.  Remember, paralysis symptoms do not appear for five to  six days after the tick begins  feeding and complete recovery  follows the removal of the tick,  providing it is removed early.  If it is overlooked, death may  result.  Remove ticks by a very: slow  and gentle pull. This will normally remove the mouth parts.  Treat the wound with a disinfectant. If there is an indication of paralysis, contact a doctor immediately..  Q. Is it necessary to reply to  a wedding invitation.  A. Invitations to the wedding  itself do not require an answer. If a reception card is  included, one answers in the  traditional third-person form ���  "Mr. and Mrs. John L. McLean accept with pleasure Mr.  and Mrs. Robert S.
