Frank Lewis pro tern chairman was elected to continue as:  chairman this year. *  Various committee chairmen  were named and last year's  activity was examined to see  how things could be bettered  this year.  Mrs. Joan Quarry was named  secretary and Mrs. J. Cramer,  treasurer. Ed. Meldrum of Little Bit Ranch will be parade  marshal and the Kinsmen club  will see that Kinsmen Park is  in shape for the big day. Gibsons Athletic - club will be approached., for the arranging of  junior sports and the Garden  club will be asked to assume  decoration   of- the platform.  Hon. Isabel Dawson, minister  without portfolio will be invited to open the day's ceremonies  which will include the crowning  of a new queen to Ibe selected  from among school pupils of  the area.  This year's    committee    will  have about $300 to start working  on  this  year.  The  matter  of bahds is being checked with  the definite promise so far of  a Legion pipe band from Vancouver.  It is anticipated that the Le-.  gion will continue its cabaret  dance in the evening "with the  high school set holding their  chaperoned dance at the school.  The Arts Council will be approached with the idea of starting a competition in which contestants will have the pleasure  of drawing suggestions for  floats. William Murray volunteered to do this year's fund  collecting in the lower section  of Gibsons and Jack White will  take the Sunnycrest area from  Pratt road  to Reid corner.  TWO MINOR ACCIDENTS  Two minor accidents occurred : during the weekend at  Reid corner in Gibsons which  RCMP regard as their chief  traffic trouble spot.

Pender Harbour students number 34Yin Grades 11 and 12  with a possible 57 by 1971, after  allowing a 10%  dropout.  This problem could be solved  in  the following ways:  (1) Putting Elphinstone Secondary School on shifts.  (2) Building an addition to  Elphinstone.   Present   buildings  . were  not  suitably  planned  for  future   expansion.'  (3) Building a Junior Secondary School. This would not  solve problems of Pender Harbour senior  students.

Disposal of the dog will  -r>pt take place until after a  . "notice has been posted that the  dog is impounded.  I An owner can redeem an impounded dog after paying a 35  impounding' fee plus $2 for the  first day in captivity then $1.35  d day after that.  I The dog license fee nas been  set at $5 for a male or spayed  female and $10 for a female.  Under the bylaw dogs must  not run at large without being  controlled on a leash. If a court  case results the owner of the  4og can be fined up to $50 and  costs. Previous license fees  were $1 for male and $2 for  female dogs.  This bylaw has been given  three readings by Gibsons council and will be given its final  reading at the next meeting.  Members of council have been  battling with the dog situation  for some time and believe they  now ���have a bylaw which will  have, some effect.

He suggested the way the  Sunshine Coast area was growing it could well be considered  a part of the metropolitan Vancouver area. He urged the planning board to extend its boundaries to include the Sunshine  Coast but no action was taken  at the meeting.  Museum opens  When it opened for the 1968  season Saturday Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum in the Municipal Hall lower floor was fortunate enough to be able to show  the visiting public samples from  the remarkable Ross Gibson  Collection of Eskimo artifacts.  Among the pieces on display  were stone knives dating from  the now extinct Tuvik Eskimos  of 2,000 years ago. One whole  showcase was filled with leather, stone and ivory articles  collected by Mr. Gibson during  his years spent throughout the  Eastern Canadian Arctic. The  museum will continue to open  from 2 to 4 p.m. each Saturday.  WEEKEND TRAFFIC  ROMP are of the opinion that  this year's holiday weekend  traffic was the greatest so far.  Traffic was at one time lined  up almost to the vicinity of the  spot where the old Granthams  bridge stood. At 3:30 p.m. Monday it was lined up halfway up  the hill from Hopkins Landing.  wiiiuunmwmimmuHuimnmii-Miiimiimiiimmmiimiiiu. .1  Dayton and Knight engineering reports on development of  tank  facilities by  Imperial  Oil  and Shell Oil on Gibsons harbor  water front has received consideration of Gibsons municipal  council. The result was to delay any consideration of tank  farm extensions or changes  until further study was made.  Imperial Oil will be allowed  to construct floating facilities  at the Gibsons Boatworks plant,  a permit for the same having  been issued. Delay on the setting up or changes to present  tank farm facilities is to allow more time for the harbor  development study now under  way.  Letters from H. M. Rosenthal  of UBC Extension department  and T. B. R. Adams of the  Union of B.C. Municipalities  were read in reply to a request  for holding municipal seminars  on the Sunshine Coast which offered the suggestion they may  be arranged later this year.  Issuance of a business license  was approved in principle to  N. Radford who desires to  open a confectionary and  grocery store on Marine Drive  in Gibsons.  Council also approved in  principle the application by F.  Nevens of Gibsons for a cable-  vision service in this area, subject to the approval of the department of transport.  Mr. W. Laing for the Kiwanis  club which is striving to develop Georgia Height's park  suggested that owing to costs  the club might have to develop  it in stages. The club intends  to develop the beach area for  a picnic ground.  Alderman Crosby reported  there   were   now   three   planes  based at the Gibsons-Sechelt  municipal airport and that the  club was now looking into the  possibility of providing a hanger.  Mayor Feeney appointed Aid.  Goddard and Peterson as a  committee to work on construction of the proposed restroom  in Marine Drive park. All bids  on the rest room were rejected  on the grounds they were too  high. The highest was $9,998  and the lowest was $7,565.  There were five bids.  ; Mayor Feeney reported on  the need for a suitable marker  to be erected on the property  (Kinsmen Park) granted to the  Village for public use by the  late Mrs. Dougall. As approval  was signified by council suitable arrangements are being  examined. .'  Council will arrange that the  recent amendment to the Motor Vehicle act covering control of motor vehicles noise be  included in the next amendment  of the village traffic bylaw.  Council decided to place the  building inspector on a municipal employee basis at the  rate of $75 per month. It also  decided that the caretaker for  the municipal hall Ibe on a  contract basis at the rate of  $60 per month.  BEARS ARE VISITORS  There is an influx of bears  since hibernating days are over  and they are seeking food. The  Shaw road area is reported by  RCMP to be a focal point but  bears have, also been reported  elsewhere. Last week a mother  bear and two cubs spent some  lime treed near the bridge in  Port  Mellon  area.  a��\ii\UH\innitiiniiiiniiuiuuraiuumniimM\mmimu!ivaunu_ 2       Coast News, May 23, 1968.  utuwum  Serving the Mt.

A boost for Gibsons  The Dr. How report on small boats published in last week's  Coast News gives Gibsons a boost as one of seven ranking ports  in the straits airea. This can be described as toeing realistic/Try  and find as well-sheltered a port anywhere in the gulf area.  Dr. How's report stat-d that when the proposed Class A harbors, Campbell��� -River��"Qualicum, two at Powell River, one in  Prince Rupert and another in Victoria area, as well as Gibsons,  were plotted on a map they could in effect form the framework  for a fully-integrated small-boat harbor system to serve the west  coast. -������-���..  When Dr. How's report becomes government policy, it will be  a move in the right direction in view of the ever-increasing motor  boat traificon the coast. As far as Giibsons is concerned it comes  at the right time. Its council has under consideration along with  (professional planners, consideration of a policy of port improvement. Now that pressure is on from'the increasing number of small  boats, action becomes necessary.  It will take some time before effects of Dr. How's findings  will be felt in this area. The pressure of numerous floating craft  will be the driving force which will put pressure on government,  officials and Gibsons aldermen to get busy and plan for the not  too distant future.  The report recommends that the federal department of transport take a more active part in small boat .problems. It is quite  possible there might ibe modifications or extensions to Dr. How's  report but for the present it will be something to work with at the  ministerial level.  To date there has been more than one government look at the  harbor situation at Giibsons and other points. With other supporting material it should not be too difficult for government departments to obtain a good picture of the requirement in Georgia  Strait area. We shall await with considerable interest howthe report will !be received. The fact it was allowed to be released to  those interested is a good sign.  A message from Edinburgh  "As long as it works, we can take it. Only fools would go on  the way we were ��� but ��� will it take this time?"  The above was scrawled on an Edinburgh newspaper sent to a  Giibsons friend. The message it reveals concerning Britain's budget is one Canadians could well consider and consider deeply.  There is no use blaming any one sector of the public. Most of  us are to blame. Too many free-wheelers are living off those who  desire to work honestly. Too many people have-their future mortgaged to the hilt. It all costs money and the economics of the use  of money are well worth serious study. However the general attitude is ��� so what!  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  20 YEARS AGO  Two Seattle men, A. Nelson  and Jack Wise accompanied by  Jim Parker and W. Morrison of  Sechelt caught 31 trout in Sak-  inaw Lake on the previous Sunday.  The Machigonne ferry transported about 600 persons to Gibsons over a two day weekend  period.  Fine weather was cracked  over the weekend with a terrific  storm on fhe Saturday night.  A. A. Lloyd, of Pender Harbour has resigned as school  trustee owing to pressure of  business.  A four-room Selma Park home  on a 77 x 124 foot lot is offered  for sale at $1,650.  Work on a road connecting  Squamish with Britannia Beach  is now about one-and-a-half  miles from completion.  10 YEARS AGO  St. Hilda's Anglican church  at Sechelt held 156 Anglicans  who attended the North Vancouver Deanery meeting.  Some 22 members of the Sechelt Square Dance association  journeyed to a square dance  session in West Vancouver High  school and returned via Blackball Ferry the same night.  Construction of an automatic  telephone exchange building for  Port Mellon has started.  Giibsons Kinsmen Club presented George Hunter with a  life membership in consideration  of his work for Kinsmen.  5 YEARS AGO  The Catholic Women's League  held an archdiocese convention  at Sechelt. For lunch 205 persons were seated in the Legion  Hall.  Sprinkling regulations were  ordered effective during June,  July and August in Gibsons. Per  mits had to be purchased for  such  sprinkling.  Effective May 17 the B.C. Toll  Authority Ferry System schedule for the summer supplied 15  ferries daily leaving Langdale  starting at 6:30 ajm. and ending with a 10 p.m. ferry.  Sechelt's   Volunteer   firemen  appeared  before the  municipal  council seeking support for the  -purchase of a new fire engine  for the area.  Coast Queen  In 1951 the Motor Vessel'Va-  cationland (3844 tons) came  down the' ways of the Great  Lakes Engineering Company  shipyard in River Rouge, Michigan. She was built originally  to carry automobiles and passengers across Mackinac  Straits lor the State Highways  Commission. It was the intention of the owners to keep the  iceprone route open all year,  so they ordered the ship, built  with a sturdy, heavy-duty hull.  She was billed as the world's  largest double-ended ice-breaking ferry.  After the Straits were bridged, the ferry was purchased by  Quelbec owners and rechristen-  ed the Pere Nouvel. She was  used between Rimouski and  Baie-Comeau across the St.  Lawrence River, a run of approximately four hours.  Meanwhile out on the West  Coast, Sunshine Coast traffic  was building up. A sparsely-  settled "region, the Sunshine  Coast and Powell River areas  were undergoing an industrial  resurgence in lumbering^fi|h-  ing and pulp and RaperZ T^ur-.  ism was booming. City dwellers  were purchasing summer cottages or retiring to enjoy the  fine climate, magnificent scenery, fishing and other outdoor  activities. I  Howe Sound was for Tmany  years served by the old Union  Steamships which called at  isolated communities with the  Capilano, Lady Rose, Lady  Cynthia, Lady Cecilia, Lady  Pam and Lady Alexandra. Later,   Black Ball Transport  inau-  ~1_3 :  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  . Q. What is civil law?  A. Wow! You really asked a  question there. This unfortunate  term has at least five meanings, but it is heard all the  time and it is important I to  understand what is usually  meant by it.  Our vast body of law may be  generally broken down into  criminal law and civil law.  Criminal law concerns offences  against the state such as theft,  robbery, breaking and entry,  etc. Civil law concerns quarrels  between individuals over breach  of contract, unpaid debts, par  accidents, defamation of criar-  acter, etc. The expression civil  law means, therefore, all [the  law that is not criminal law,  and 99% of the .time this is  the  way  it is  used.  The term may, however,'be  used in other senses. It sometimes means all the law that  is   not   ecclesiastical^ law.  Ec-  gurated direct car service between Horseshoe Bay and Langdale and the vessels SS Smok-  wa and MV Bainbridge plied  these waters.  In 1961 B.C. Ferries purchased the Black Ball operation and  soon after introduced the Sechelt Queen (formerly the  "Chinook" ��� 83 cars) and the  Langdale Queen (formerly the  "Kahloke" ��� 80 cars) to the  run. By 1966 traffic had increased to the point where  these two ships together were  under strain to meet traffic  peaks. The B.C. Ferry System  began shopping around to find  a suitable alternative.  The Pere Nouvel, with its  strong hull, massive capacity  and ability to manoeuvre without turn-around was the answer. She was purchased from  her Quebec owners, Compagne  de Navigation Nord-Sud L'tee,  for $1,600,000. A B.C. Ferries  skelton crew was sent to Quebec to take delivery and bring  the ship to British Columbia  via Y the 77: Panama Canal, an  ocean adventure the crew will  long remember.     7  Since her arrival the ship has  undergone complete refurbishing at a cost of $606,000. Mezzanine decks have been added  to her commodious car deck  to give her a capacity of over  185 automobiles, more than  double that of either of her  predecessors and - half again  that of her Gulf of Georgia  sisters. Passenger facilities  were torn- out and completely  remodelled. .  A fast-service cafeteria has  been installed to serve snacks  and light meals during the 50-  minute crossing. The cafeteria  will seat 212 passengers at a  time. Comfortable observation  lounges have been opened up  and furnished with new beige  fibreglass chairs to accommodate the licensed passenger  capacity of 725 persons, plus  25 crew members.  Powered with four massive  engines (2360 bhp each) with  twin screws fore and aft, the  ship  will   cruise at  16.5  knots.  clesiastical law or church law  still forms part of our law  in certain fields of * domestic  relations. An ecclesiastical lawyer would so use it.  Civil law is also used to contrast and distinguish the vast  codes or encyclopedias of laws  of European countries with the  English common law system,  which relies moire on case law,  decisions made by the courts  as individual problems come  before them and are decided  and recorded.  This expression sometimes is  used to mean all the law that  is not public international law  (the law of nations) and a public international lawyer would  so use it.  Lastly civil law is used to  mean all the law that is not  , military law. Military law concerns offences which have no  civilian counterpart such as:  desertion, cowardice, insubordination, etc. When a soldier  wishes to speak of a law .which  is not part of military law he  calls it civil law.  Her double-ended feature will  make the complex landings and  departures at both Langdale and  Horseshoe Bay faster, easier  than ever. The Sunshine Coast  Queen is 360' long and 73' 7"  wide, largest in the B.C. Ferries' fleet.

In defence  of the ever increasing demands  for a specific academic-scientific program by every student,  here are the aims and ideals  of home economics in the modern  day  school curriculum.  The approach has changed  drastically as. far as content, is  concerned. The subject-is closely related to the.home and the  pattern of family life has also  changed. drastically. It is intended that the relationship be  Co-operative -arid hot compete-  . tiye7 aiid} to offer; training for  t^7; complex 7and y demanding  position in Sfamily life; also to  provide some introduction of  home economics related to employment possibilities. In Grade  8 all.' girls take a combined  course of foods and textiles, incorporating aspects of home  management and child care.  From Grades 9-12 the courses  are termed electives and can  be selected by students following  all programs. >  ^jn ^ffe ^^^  Last year boys were allowed  to elect the foods course for  the first time and, .in most  cases, have integrated well into  a field hitherto considered exclusively female. Several have  overcome the disadvantage of  not   having   the   basic   training  ���^  in Grade 8 arid have continued  into the more sophisticated  work of Grade 11. This illustrates the flexibility of the  course,     where     boys  can be  taught to develop the cooking  skills and, at the same time,  follow the assigned courses  dealing with nutrition, food  selection, Y storage and use,  which go to make up the successful running of the modern  home.  Basic skills are not neglected,  but new emphasis is given to  the utilization of modern equipment and the foods available  on the market, both of which  are now an integral part of  family life. At the same time  social training is developed by  simulating the family unit and  #'..  ��  TRENCHING  DITCHING  EXCAVATING  GRAVEL FILL & TOP SOIL  Phone: Days 886-2663  Nights 886-2378  or        886-7764  Fiedler Bros Contracting  Coast Highway, ��� Gibsons  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  PLANNING DISPLAY  A display of Maps and Plans of this District prepared  by the Department of Municipal Affairs Planning Division  will be on view to the public at the following locations  and times:���  GIBSONS MUNICIPAL HALL  Monday, May 27th ��� 4 - 8 p.m.  MADEIRA PARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  Tuesday, May 28th ��� 5 - & p.m.  DAVIS BAY, WHITAKER BLOCK  Wednesday, May 29th ��� 3-8 p.m.  Representatives of the Planning Staff and the Regional  Board will be in attendance.

The main  objective of the clothing and  textiles courses in the high  school curriculum is to combine both theory and practice  to help girls develop competence  and skill in planning and selecting suitaible clothing to meet  their needs.v  ��� .7'      ���' %\'. .*������������   *  This broad objective includes  a study of the principles of  color, design and texture, a  study of. textile performance  and care, a study of the operating and care, of equipment and  a study of construction skills  and techniques suitable for the  course level. Simultaneously,  each student develops a standard for evaluation of clothing  selection, construction and care  and becomes better able to  recognize workmanship in ready  made as well as home constructed garments.  Home management, apart  from the general relevances to  the other courses, has/not been  offered as an elective subject  in recent years, as there are  not the facilities for the present curriculum to be carried  out effectively. Whenever possible, the principles of management are integrated to help develop efficient work habits and  a high standard of workmanship.  .''���������' *       *    -   ��� ���  The objective:, of the child  care program are wide. It is  intended that the student will  develop an interest in, and enjoyment of young children, at  the same time to recognize  some of the basic needs of children through knowledge of their  growth and development. This  "incorporates such aspects as  knowing the physical needs of  children, keeping them safe and  to realize the responsibilities assumed when taking charge of  young children.  The course also develops  some ability in the selection  and use of play materials and  the ability to share experiences  and work co-operatively with  others in looking after children.  The Child Care Course also  covers both the theoretical and  practical home management,  foods, and nutrition and clothing relating to the young child.  Zone luncheon  A dozen members of Roberts  Creek Royal Canadian Legion  attended the zone luncheon in  Sechelt and were pleased to  learn that this year's project  will be the same as last year,  donations to the Senior Citizen homes and the Powell  River hospital.  At the May 6 meeting final  arrangements were made for  the Friday, May 24 rummage  sale also for the branch birthday party on June 8 starting  at 7 p.m. and taking the form  of open house from 9 p.m. on.  Members of the auxiliary and  branch can bring a friend.  At the May 10 meeting members were reminded that the  next zone meeting will be held  at Texada on June 15. The  gavel will be taken to Sechelt  on June 22.  Vanier Instifut  centre not same  It is apparent from correspondence received by The Vanier Institute of the Family,  from occasional letters to newspaper editors - and from rare  press comment, that some people are7 confusing The Vanier  Institute of the Family with the  F. H. Vanier Centre, (Centre  Francois Vanier) which advertizes that it employs methods  to, ..". . . .discover and introduce compatible Canadian men  - and women," and invites enquiries.       "  There is absolutely no connection between The Vanier Institute of the Family and the  F. H. Vanier Centre, and no  connection has ever existed between the two.  The Vanier Institute, of the  vFamily was named after the  late General Georges P. Vanier,  its founder and first patron.  It is our understanding that the  President of the F. H. Vanier  Centre is an F. H. Vanier. We  have it on the best authority  that there never existed any  connection between the Vanier  family after whom the Institute is named and the F. H.  Vanier Centre. We also understand that the F. H. Vanier  Centre was incorporated before  The Vanier Institute of the  Family was established.  SHOPLIFTERS   EXPENSIVE  Shoplifters are costing Canadian retailers $375 ^ million a  year, according to a report in  Home Goods Retailing. "All  merchandise is sold on a temptation business today," says  Brian Cavanagh; personnel and  security manager of Henry  Birks & Sons, Montreal. "This  is good merchandising. People  feel the article,... then buy it.  But sometimes when they feel  it, they are tempted and take  it." Only about 10% of shoplifters  are professionals.  Editor: We are quietly warming up in the federal election  campaign. Since 1907 I have  had the opportunity of watching these campaigns here in  B.C. Without question we shall  again witness one unvaried  feature the marked contrast in  pre-election and post election  activity. Over the years we've  had minority governments and  not many years past a government with an outstanding majority all with one thing in  common painfully slow motion  action in bringing into effect  any' semblance of the things  promised during election campaigns. This pretty well applies  to the dififerent levels of government.  Fortunately most of us can  recall the odd individual whose  conduct was exemplary and  just as unfortunately have little trouble thinking of many  whose conduct is best forgotten.  My point in writing is to express the hope that we put our  complaints forward to the candidates at every opportunity  and not take any wishy washy  hokum for an answer.  There's little question but  what beneficial changes have  taken place over the years but  many more worthwhile changes  are long overdue. We had one  demonstration where ��� parliament acted with speed 'and  practically no advance publicity or political differences arising when a hefty advance in  salary was harmoniously s arranged. How nice it would be  to see other pieces of much  needed legislation so speedily  put into effect. ��� Dave Rees.  .

NDP candidate speaks  Before a sparse audience  Hartly Dent, NDP candidate in  the federal Coast-Chilcotiri election, spoke in Union Hall, ���' Gibsons Wednesday evening of last  week. Along with him were  Tom Barnett, M.P., for Comox-  Alberni and Chris Huddleston,  campaign manager.  Mr. Barnett spoke on federal  issues and Mr. Huddleston on  campaign affairs, urging NDP  workers to knock on all 5,000  doors in the community.  Mr. Dent outlined the resources in this constituency by  showirig that the interior was  cattle and the coastline mainly  fish. He was of the opinion that  federal policies were discriminatory when comparing the low  income group with others. He  favored implementation tbf the  Carter tax report.  He found that the Indians  were victifns of government red  tape resulting in frustrations  which he thought called for a  greater need of a co-operative  relationship.  ' Housing also received attention and he was of the opinion  the cost of homes for people in  unorganized areas was too  high and something should be  done about it. He also urged  greater conservation in the  streams that abound in the  area and greater measures  taken to see that spawning  grounds remain open. Geoff  Thatcher  was  chairman.  Thrift shop needs dishes  The Roberts . Creek Auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital met at  the library May 13. Reports  ���on the- ���* Co-ordinating * councils  and .Thrift shop were read by  Mrs. Muriel Tibb. and Mrs. J.  Forbes gave the financial report. Letters- of thanks and appreciation from executives of  the auxiliaries' association regarding the regional meeting  were read by Mrs. Stan Rowland.  Mrs. Muriel Tibb. was delegated to attend the National  Hospital auxiliaries' Workshop  which will be held in Vancouver May 29-31.  The secretary, Mrs. Tibb,  was authorized to purchase a  text book on catering which  has been a successful irieans  of, raising riioney for the hospital.  It will be Roberts Creek's  .turn to staff the Thrift Shop  on June 1 and members were  reminded that there is a need  for dishes and household goods.  Mrs. Rowland announced that  she would show movies of the  auxiliaries centennial tea at the  next meeting.  Mrs. J. Shields was the winner  of the  evening's  draw.  Warn paintings on show  During the past year a remarkable' number of paintings  by local artists have been shown  in the Arts Council gallery at  Sechelt, but the work of Joan  Warn on display this week and  until the end of the month, is  different from anything exhibited before. Mrs. Warn, well  known in Roberts Creek, has  taught for eight years and spent  her sabbatical year at UBC enjoying a series of fine arts  courses.  Of the work she has done  during the year she has chosen  a collection of drawings and  etchings for display. A variety  of subjects  and  media  are  in  cluded, portraits, dancing  figures, work done in charcoal,  pen and ink, conte pencil and  , felt pen as well as print's made  from an etching on metal. One  intricate forest scene reflects  Joan Warn's deep and continuing interest in and affinity for  trees, the result perhaps of living remotely on Gambier Island for many years. In September Mrs. Warn will be  teaching intermediate art at  Sechelt Elementary School.  :;. On Saturday afternoon, May  25 Mrs. Warn will be at the  gallery to explain the various  techniques used in her work.  Coffee will ibe served.  80 at Witness event  Why does God permit wickedness? That is a question that  needs answering, said Laurier  Saumur of Toronto, addressing  an audience of 1552 at a convention of Jehovah's Witnesses at  Carson Graham Secondary  School, North Vancouver, Sunday, May 19. Eighty attended  from the Sunshine Coast.  For thousands of years men  have ruled the earth with governments of their own making  and God has permitted this. The  resultant distress and disappointments have settled the issue as to whether rule independent of God is good for the human family.  Although no man knows the  day or hour, we are at the close  of the generation which will see  the end of wickedness. G"bd's  Kingdom government will see to  that, he said.  Nine new ministers expressed  confidence in God's purpose to  remove wickedness from the  earth forever by dedicating  their lives to his service. They  symbolized this by water immersion. It was announced that  preparations are now underway  for Jehovah's Witnesses to hold  a convention at Haney Centennial civic Arena, July 11-14.  *H  KEEP OFF POLES  Campaign managers of all  candidates eritering the race in  the federal election called for  June 25 are being asked by the  B.C. Telephone Company to  keep election signs off telephone poles.  uuiim  (Continued from page 1)  make up full complement for  Pender Harbour Secondary  School.  (6) Building a new Senior Secondary  School   at   Sechelt.  The school board has decided  that for long range planning  a centrally located senior secondary school offers the best  solution.  ADVANTAGES  (1) All students would have  an adequate choice of courses  to prepare for further education  or  employment.  (2) Lessening of problems inherent in granting freedom to  senior students. Last year in  spite of the number of new  schools built, there were 14  fewer schools enrolling senior  secondary students. The drop  was caused by small senior  secondary schools sending their  senior students to a large  school and becoming junior secondary schools.  (3) The present facilities in  Elphinstone would then be adequate for Grades 8-10.  COSTS  (1) The Department of Education controls cost of new  buildings. Under the present  restrictions $22,500 is allowable  for each classroom for a secondary school.  (2) The school board is presently looking for land for a  proposed senior secondary  school in Sechelt area. The site  at Gibsons is adequate for any  new building which may be  necessary in  the future.  (3) The. present student ratio  for Gibsons to Sechelt is 2:1  in senior secondary grades and  3:2 in junior secondary grades.  It could mean more students  would Ibe travelling from Gibsons to Sechelt than presently  being transported to Gibsons  from Sechelt. With the possibility of a new highway from  Langdale to Earl's Cove, the  time factor may be changed  considerably. For Pender Harbour students there would be  a longer bus ride but time of  leaving home would be approximately the same as at present.  It may.be necessary^ to^place..  Elphinstone students on ~ shift  (before a new school can be  finished and this will add greatly to the cost of transportation.  The writer also asks if Elphinstone will still retain its  name. It most certainly will;  a new name will be given to  the new school.  The school board welcomes  comments and suggestions  from interested people and will  endeavor to keep the public  informed on future plans for  the school district.  Trustee asks  for more help  On recommendation of Trustee Leo Johnson of Sechelt the  district school board may consider drafting a resolution to  go before the B.C. School Trustees association convention asking for a greater federal Indian  Affairs department contribution  towards the cost of including  Indian children in the school  system.  At present the grant is $25 per  month per student but in view  of today's costs Mr. Johnson  was of the opinion it should be  larger. The subject came up  when the problem of school  room space was discussed.  There are about 50 more students to be considered and now  it does not appear that the board  will be able to acquire built  space before 1970.  The board was also asked to  consider a full time adult education director as good work  was being done among the reserve people. A free tuition policy was announced for dropouts  who decided to return to school.  Unscheduled stops for school  buses will be stopped following  a complaint of a bus stopping  on Langdale hill. A letter to  this effect will go to the schools  and to those controlling the  school buses.

Rain held  off from the time the parade  started at about 12 o'clock and  dried put even' more as the  afternoon proceeded. The sandy  park ground did not develop  sloppy footing except in a few  spots.  The parade which started  from the Reserve school  grounds was led by three  RCMP led by Cpl. O. Horseman.  While the parade was wending its way toward Hackett  Park, four Tyee Airways planes  made passes over the parade  route and added to the thrills  of the parade.  Spectacular in the parade  was the first band, that of the  _K^nlpqps���. ^Residential ?., ^school  which "while only in" training  for seven months under Const.  Jim Fitzpatrick a former Sechelt member of the ROMP detachment, performed remarkably well. The band numbering  almost 50 revealed good marching precision which was later  increased by some fine countermarching during the" platform  ceremonies. The other band,  the Sechelt Reserve school band  were their usual selves and  also gave a good account of  their efforts during a countermarching demonstration in  front of the platform.  Judges of the floats were  Father Power, W. H. Parson,  Mrs. F. Newton and Mrs. B.  Redman. Their job was made  easier by the rain having caused some floats to withdraw.  George Eberle was parade  marshal.  Float winners were: private  class: Rickshaw, Christa Harris and Tommy Brown; bikes,  Mark and Evan Gray; organ:~a-  tions, Powell River Sea Fair;  comic, Sunshine Coast clowns;  non-commercial, Homemakers  and commercial Lissiland F!ovists of Gibsons.  The event was arranged by  the Sunshine Coast Lions club,  assisted by the village council.  Mayor Swain complimented  Mrs. Redman on her work in  producing the platform presentation which ran off smoothly  including the square dancing  two groups of Sechelt school  pupils and the Sechelt school  Maypole dance.  In the evening the May  Queen attended the banquet  arranged in her honor and later  the May Queen's ball in the  Legion hall. Maurice Hemstreet  was dance master of ceremonies.  Quite a large crowd enjoying the convenient lack of rain  watched the platform proceedings and when it was all over  wended their way to the concessions where most kids had  the fun of taking in some of  the rides, eating candy floss  or watching their elders at  bingo or enjoying themselves  at the barbecue stands whero  steaks, chicken and salmon  were available. 6       Coast News, May 23, 1968.

"No, we don't," eight youngsters from the British Columbia village of Sechelt, about  35 miles northwest of Vancouver, are assuring pupils at  Seattle's North Beach Elemen-  teary School.  The three Canadian boys and  five girls, all seventh-graders���  the highest grade in their school  ��� and their principal, Weldon  L. Reid, are spending the week  at North Beach, hosted \by  families of North Beach pupils.  Reid promoted the trip because "our children do not  have the opportunity to be exposed to the city way of life."  It has been a two-way education. Most Of the Canadians  met their first Negro youngsters here, voluntary-transfer  pupils at North Beach.  And the North Beach youngsters    got     to    meet    Kenny  Karuse,     13,      an Indian  boy  whose   father  fishes   and  logs  at     Rivers     Inlet,  an isolated  British  Columbia  coastal town.  "Kenny 'is   the   only   Indian  boy at elementary level attending   a   provincial   school  being  in  a   foster  home  through  the  Dept. of Indian Affairs. Most of  the    native    Canadian    Indian  children from remote areas attend boarding schools, he said.  Sechelt '    Elementary's     420  pupils   are   25   percent   Indian.  "We're    the    only integrated  school in our area," Reid said.  Kenny and his classmates (believe the Canadian schools are  more athletically inclined. Kenny also added a sage observation  of   another   difference  between here and "back home:"  But Arthur, whose father runs  a dairy farm, noted that North  Beach offers Spanish and economics,   subjects   not   given   in  his school.  Eleanor   Swan,   12,   daughter  of  a   Sechelt   doctor,   said  the  "The water runs faster (out  of faucets) here!"  The British Columbians believe   studies   are   easier  here.  "I think we had most of this  sixth-grade   stuff  in   grade  5."  Arthur Hoefsloot, 13; said,  girls dress alike up north and  here. '  Boys are nice here, "but  they're better at home," said  Janice Mullen, 12.  Denise Frigon, 12, said the  North Beach-area homes "are  sort of elegant.'' North Beach  School, whpse enrollment is  about the same as Sechelt; is  much bigger, "but.I sort of like  ours better," she said.  i "Bowling isdifferent here,"  Susanne Jprgensen,Yli, said.  "You have 10 pins. We have  both five and 10 pins."  Visitors and hosts yesterday  visited the Ballard Locks, the  Pacific Science Center, the  Space Needle and the waterfront.  The British Columbia youngsters arrived Sunday and were  to leave today.  The visitors have come in for  some good-natured ribbing from  their  counterparts here.  "They call us 'turkeys' and  say 'gobble-gobble' when they  see us," Laurie Allah, 12, said.  "But it's all in fun," Reid  said. But to the visitors the  understatement of understate-  riients came . from a North  Beach teacher as reported by  Susanne:  "This teacher came up and  said, 'you almost look like an  American'!"  mm  REMODELLING or REBUILDING!

The trip was made possible through special arrangements by the Vancouver Opera  Association.  Transportation was partially  subsidized by the school board  and seven teachers donated  their time and energy to  supervise the excursion. The  students left on the 12:30 ferry.  At the opera comments like  the following were heard:  "I never thought the opera  would be this great ��� It is exciting ��� The acting was great  ��� Did you see the way they  changed the scenery? ��� Why  did he take so long to die? ���  What opera are we going to  see next year?

SWIMMERS WARNED  Recent Red Cross statistics  point out the fact that drownings in British Columbia increased for 1967 by 18.9 percent. Among the causes is extended breath holding under  water. Teen-agers and younger  children must continually be  warned of this danger. Gerald  Cook, B.C.-Yukon director of  Red Cross Water Safety services, said. Parents should give  warning of the danger of competing with each other to see  who can stay under water the  longest. This is particularly important at unsupervised beaches  and pools.

It is  situated 3^_ miles west of Sechelt and is about five acres  in area, cut in half by the highway. There is ��� a 500 foot safe,  clean, pebble beach with a lovely view of sea and islands.  The camp has operated in the  Vancouver area since 1932, and  Kay Butler for  C of C convention  B.C.'s Parliament of Business  meets May 26-28 in Victoria  when more than 350- delegates  will attend the 17th annual  meeting of the B.C.

The camp is administered  and financed by the Gamma  Phi Beta Sorority, an international . association of women  university students and graduates with affiliated chapters  in Canadian and American universities. The Sorority holds a  Valentine Party every spring  for a reunion.  The girls heeds are supplied  while they are in the camp  with clothing, bedding, toilet  articles and towels in addition  to regular camp facilities. This  camp is only one of many Gamma Phi Beta philanthropic projects and therefore careful  budgeting is called for. Yrhe  other big camp is called Indian Hills and is situated in  the mountains of Idaho where  they concentrate on horseback  riding   rather   than   swimming.  All the Vancouver camp  board members who organize  the camp are volunteer Twork-  ers. In the summer operation  of the camp, all the counselY  lors are hiembers of the sorority, usually undergraduates.  They come from all "over Canada and the U.S.A. arid are unpaid volunteer workers also.  There are 6 or 7 counsellors at  each session, each one being  in charge of five or sixyoiing-  sters. The director and the waterfront counsellor are also  Gamma Phi Beta members arid  they are paid a salary. The  cook is the only other paid  staff member. ���  Volunteer labor also does  most of the repairs and main-:  tenance. The greater proporY  tion of funds for supporting  this camp for Canadian children comes from the United  States.' /Y-v  The camp is in operation for  six and one half weeks, starting at ��� the beginning of July.'  It provides a 12 day holiday for  three groups of 32 little girls;  all underprivileged, a total of  108 per summer. They are from  8���12 years of-age. These children are selected by the metropolitan health ischool^ nurses in  Vancouver, entirely on the  basis of real \ need. 7 There a re  no restrictions as torauce, color,  ���:Or creed.   :.i \77'7:Y :;Y7VYY  Each chad has a medical  exam before coming to camp.  At the request of _he social  service agencies each family  is asked to pay $5 to cover, the  cost of transportation, insurance, and medical exam, in  order that the family may retain its self-respect and sense  of responsibility. It is felt that  this is not a hardship, as they  do not have to feed or clothe  their child for the 12-day period.  However, no child is ever excluded because of inability to  pay all or part of the $5.  The main aim of the camp  is to give the children a safe,  healthy, and happy holiday with  lots of loving attention, which  these particular children often  need desperately. Many of them  come from appalling home conditions, and a need is'filled  that is not met by ordinary  camps.  One of the most popular directors, Miss Sandra Davis  ^rom Miami, Florida, will be  back for her fourth year in Sechelt, this summer. During the  time these girls are at the  camp, an open-house is, held,  and the public is welcomed to  the camp for tea and a guided  tour usually conducted (by the  counsellors or the girls themselves. The girls also put on a  short entertainment and there  is a display of the handwork  done by the present group. The  popular caretakers of the Gamma Phi Beta camp are Olive  and Bill McGregor.
