Array Provincial YLIbrary,  Victoria,   B^C,   I  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 19,  May 9,  1968.  10c per copy  Joseph Benner of Sechelt was  elected president of the Sunshine Coast liberal association  Monday night in Selma Park  Community hall at a meeting  attended by 20 persons. Norman  Watson; of Sechelt, who declined the presidency for health  reasons Twas elected vice-president; George Eberle of Selma  Park, treasurer" and Miss  Heather Wheeler of Gibsons,  secretary. YS.'  Temporary Chairman Norman  Watson explained that this new  Liberal association was now an  all-inclusive unit, provincial as  well as federal in political activity, similar to7 the provincial  Liberal association which now  covers both political fields.  7 A membership drive is under  way and members hope to field  a strong front during the federal political campaign which  for Coast-Chilcotin will ihave it  is, expected, Paul St. Pierre,  Vancouver Sun writer as its  candidate. The president of the  organization will represent all  proxy, votes at the nomination  meeting.  A move will get underway to  attract young Liberals, anyone  under 30 coming into this category of a young Liberal. Also  the executive will be arranged  so that Young Liberals will be  represented;. and that there  would also be a representative  for women. '  Meetings will be arranged  throughout the area and the  next one will be held in the  Pender Harbor area after the  nominating convention at Squam  ish.    ; ._.. .  The meeting passed a motion  supporting the candidacy of  Paul St. Pierre,- a; prominent  writer on the Vancouver Sun  who has considerable experience in the presentation of TV  feature movies of the Cariboo  country.  Retiring temporary, chairman  Mr. Watson decided that his  $50 kickback on party expenses  to the convention which selected Prime Minister Trudeau as  leader would go towards giving  20 members a 50 percent cut in  membership fees.

Sechelt tax  rates climb  Sechelt council at its meeting Wednesday night of last  week set this year's mill rate  at 12.24, which is 2.24 higher  than last year.  In view of the increase in  numerous mill rates which,will  be paid by Sechelt ratepayers,  this year's total mill rate including the municipal, school,  hospital and fire district rates  will be 6.16 mills higher than  last year's 44.76 mills. This  year itv will be 50.92 broken  down in this manner: Municipal,  12.24; school, 34.98; fire district,  2.76 and hospital, 1.94.  Sechelt council, to make up  its total budget for this year,  will draw $8,973 from its surplus which would be now reduced to about $9,000. It is  quite possible this amount from  the surplus intended for capital  expenditure may not be used  at all.  STORE BURGLARIZED  Gibsons Black Market store  was burglarized several nights  ago and cash amounting to  about $185 was stolen along  with some clothing.  menace  PAUL ST. PIERRE  who will seek nomination as  Liberal candidate for Coast-  Chilcotin constituency at a convention Saturday-night in Paradise Valley Inn, Squamish, a,t  8:30 p.m. It is expected up -to  ten members of the Sunshine  Coast Liberal association will  attend this nominating convention.   ���  , HARTLEY DENT    ;    i.  NDP candidate ,_ftr;federal .'election in June. His home is at 100  Mile House in Cariboo country  and he visited the .Sunshine  Coast area last November,  speaking in Union Hall, Gibsons.  School operation  check asked  In view of public criticism of  Elphinstone   Secondary    school  operation   it   has   been   agreed  by the school board, superintendent of schools, principal, vice-  principal   and   staff   jointly   to  request    an    education department inspection. The inspecting  team  would  also be  requested  to  consider various  aspects of  the operation of the school and  offer comment and,suggestions.  This  decision was arrived at  during a special meeting of the  board    Tuesday    night of last  week.  The board also decided  to  invite  Mr.   J.   Phillips on of  the department of education to  visit the district and study the  board's plans for extensions to  Sechelt  Elementary  school.   It  is intended to make the department   aware   of   the   scattered  nature of the present school facilities at that school.  The board will survey alternative school accommodation  in Gibsons and Sechelt for possible use in September due to  lack of classrooms and the  avoidance of split shifts.  The board passed its Tax Notice No. 1, a bylaw to adopt  the annual budget and levy a  rate for school taxes. This bylaw calls for $1,587,869 to be  raised by taxation for 1968. The  mill rate will be 34.98 on 100  percent of land and 75 percent  on improvements.. With $265,-  289 contributed to the budget  by the department of education, the gross budget will be  $1,853,158. This bylaw is necessary under the new financial  setup for boards.  The fooard agreed that the  three trustees who left on the  expiry of their terms in December, be invited to a meeting  on June 11 to. be presented with  a token of appreciation of their  services with the board.  A four and a half million dollar program to upgrade fishing  -, .vessels owned and operated by  Indian fishermen in British Co-  ������   lumbia,   arid   to   provide   them  ��� \ with technical training and ves-  ';  sel   repair 7 facilities,   was   an-  Y'nounced     by    Indian    Affairs  ,- Minister Arthur Laing.  : ]      The 7 program was planned at  the    request    of    the    Native  j  Brotherhood   of, British  Colum-  j- bia,  the Indian fishermen's br-  \ ganization which has worked on  the    proposal    for some time.  The federal department of fish-  '���  eries   co-operated  and  the  re-  <.  suiting   program,   jointly   plan-  \ ned, is supported fully by them.  The Indian Fishermen's Assistance     Program     will provide  -"  loans and grants to enable In-  ' dian  fishermen  to  buy  newer,  more efficient vessels or to re-  '.  model existing craft which are  ' of   sound   construction   but  in-  .   adequately     equipped.      New  v   wharf   and   vessel   storage   fa-  : cilities   will  be  built. near  In-  ���-. diari villages. Indian fishermen  will be given training in newer  methods   of navigation-,   engine  care, electronic equipment, fish  handling,    and    other technical  .'.   subjects.  The plan will be administered  ;   by   a   five-man   Indian   Fisher7  :   men's Development Board con-  "- is ting     of ���   .one  representative  r; from  the department of fisher-  ' ies,-. one <h_ember  at; large  appointed-? by the minister of fish-  :-: eries, Y two    representatives of  ' jhe Indian fishermen,  and. one.  Y^tJ^r^i^ember7:appointed' bx .the -  '���'"'"minister:, of  Indian' Affairs." "*-'"  The program is estimated to  cost    approximately    $4,625,000  over  a   five-year  period.   It  is  intended   to   assist   Indians   to  master; improved   management  techniques   and  the  latest  methods of fishing,.as well as to  upgrade   their ^equipment.   One  of     the     basic\ problems,  Mr.  Laing said, is that the Indians'  vessels   are older and less efficient     than     the  other  coast  fishing vessels.   ,   .  In 1966, .15.8% of the fishing  vessels operating commercially  in B.C. coastal waters were  owned by Indians, but they accounted for only 11.8% of the  dollar value of the fish landed.  Part of the reason is that many  of the Indian, vessels are smaller and obsolete. New equipment is coming into use and  many Indians who fish have  not yet learned how to handle  it. It is the new devices which  make the modern fishing vessel  economically  successful.  The department of fisheries  have estimated that there were  2,200 Indians engaged in fishing operations between 1963  and 1967. Of the 7,297 vessels,  which made up the fleet, 1,191  were operated by Indians. Conditions for the Indian fishermen have deteriorated over the  last few years partly because  Indians have hot had the necessary technical and business  training and access to sources  of credit on a comparable scale  to others.  Mayor Fred Feeney of Gibsons has appealed to the public  to assist in curbing vandalism.  He urged the populace that  when  they   see   some   form   of  destruction or deliberate haorm  taking place anywhere to call  the  RCMP  immediately.  He cited broken street lights,  pushing over street signs, damage to the same, breaking windows, destruction of warning  signs, damage 7 to . fences and  property and other ^forms of  vandalism.  He also drew attention to a  new Motor Vehicle act regulation which covers noise from  motor vehicles. The section of  the act reads that no person  shall start, drive, turn, or stop  any motor vehicle or accelerate  the engine while the vehicle is  stationary, in a  manner which  causes any loud and unnecessary noise in or from the engine, exhaust System, or braking system or from contact of  tires on the road.  A request from the Chamber  of Commerce for a $500 grant  to cover publication of brochures  for the benefit of the village  was turned over to the finance  committee for consideration in  the budget. Two water applications for supplying water to  residents in the VLA ro_td area  were granted.  A; request from Mrs. F. Beau-  chesne for a home occupation  beauty salon was granted subject to fulfilment of sanitary  regulations. The matter of a  light for Wyngaert road was  left over until the fall months  when it would be needed most.  The light was sought by Dr.  E. A. Baja. 7  WINNERS of the Coast New's Sunshine Coast JuvenUe Soccer Cup  as league and district ohaanpions are shown above.

A letter writer supreme  An occasion arises now an<_ again in which one can write of  an individual who has done a tremendous work, yet his lack of  presence before the public has been a self-sought submerged  anonymity.  This individual is not known generally. However people are  acquainted with his work ��� that is one out of every 38 persons in  Canada. His efforts have been towards inspiring personal improvement, whether it be of education, health, enjoyment of living, or in  .a business capacity.  His name is John Heron and a good many newsmen of respectable age who were concerned with the gathering of news back in  the dirty thirties most likely heard'from him as an editor on the  Toronto Star, either by telephone, telegram or personal contact.  But John Heron the newsman dropped out of sight and not  much was heard from him ��� except through a job he has been  doing quietly ever since 1943 ��� turning out the, Royal Bank monthly letter. This letter now reaches close to three quarters of a million people monthly. Schools, Universities, business houses, governmental units, national, foreign and state legislators have all partaken of the use of John Heron's Royal Bank letter.  To call it John Heron's" Royal Bank letter is only fair. It is the  child of his brain and has been so for the last 25 years. His policy  is to be constructive. It is> so easy, he says, to knock things down,  that many writers take that path. They go along, like the Roman  dictator in his garden, swinging their sticks and knocking off the  .tallest and best flowers. They find it easy and lucrative to denigrate greatness, to attack the establishment, to aggravate cbnfu-  .sion.  Mr. Heron is a believer of the idea that a writer should not get  in the way of what he is writing. His work goes therefore to the  public bearing no byline. With this one can agree because there is  so much being written today by people with nothing but a name.  The Royal Bank letter is unique among bank publications. It  is not of the kind that outlines business trends. It is more along  the lines of a general education and if one had a library of every  issue turned out by Mr. Heron, he or she would have much more  than university classes could give them during their university  training days. So Mr. Heron, keep up your good work. You will be  a hard man to replace. (Your editor knew John Heron back in  those dirty thirties.)  Life's like that!  The first touch of spring lightly turns editors thoughts to philosophizing. A careful look at the appliance and electronics industry  prompted Bill Ince of Home Goods Retailing to ponder on Murphy's laws applying to this industry in the same way as to other  things:  If anything can go wrong, it will.  Nothing is ever as simple as it seems.  If you fool around with anything long enough, it will eventually break.  H you try to please everybody, somebody isn't going to like it.  It is a fundamental law of nature that nothing quite works out.  It is easier to get into anything than to get out of it.  If you can explain something so clearly no one can possibly  misunderstand, somebody will.  ��� !   Whatever you want to do, you will have to do something else  first.  The extraordinary, activity in  world   gold  markets   in   recent  months,     concurrent    with the  progress made towards the establishment  of  a  new  international reserve asset under the  auspices of    the    International  Monetary  Fund,   have   focused  considerable   attention   on   the  international payments   system.  Financing of the bulk of the  world's trade, which in the last  20  years   has  almost   doubled,  is carried on for the most part  through the world's foreign exchange markets, using facilities  of the commercial banking system. Under the system of fixed exchange rates which exists  today,  the pressures, of supply  and demand on currencies, both  for the  purposes  of trade and  for   other  commercial  transactions,   necessitates   the   holding  of reserves by national governments,  which  they  use  in the  foreign exchange markets when  necessary to maintain their currencies at    the   internationally  agreed exchange rate. The net  result of such governmental activities   shows   up   as  gains   or  declines in foreign exchange reserves.  Until modern times such reserves were held in the form  of precious metals, mainly gold.  However, by the 19th century,  national reserves were already  being supplemented by a currency, the pound sterling, and  the practice of holding reserve  assets in a variety of forms  has grown with increasing complexity to this day. The items  now normally included in reserves are: 1. Gold; 2. Official  holdings of foreign currencies;  3. Reserve positions in the  I.M.F.  Gold remains the principal  world reserve asset. Its importance as measured by the proportion held in world reserves  has been declining; accounting  for some 92 percent in 1937, the  proportion had fallen to about  70 percent in 1951 and now  stands at just above 50 percent.  This decline reflects the fact  that while total reserves have  been on the increase, the production of gold has risen only  very slowly and competing demands for the metal for indus-  trial uses and hoarding have  grown rapidly. Since late 1966,  the absolute size of monetary  gold reserves has actually declined.  When confidence wanes in the  ability of a nation to support  the reserve asset nature of its  currency, external holders of  that currency take steps to con-  convert it to another form of asset, first into another currency,  but ultimately into gold if confidence in the most commonly  used reserve currency is not  sustained. The underlying factor behind the recent massive  shift out of major reserve cur-<  rencies, and into gold was international concern over the  balance of payments positions  of the two major reserve countries.  Of particular and continuing  concern^ was the large and persistent deficit that had developed in the United States balance  of payments, which had as its  counterpart a sharp rise in  liquid claims on the United  States, a resultant loss of gold  by that country as foreign  monetary authorities converted  their excess dollar holdings into  gold and the concurrent speculation in the market as a whole  as to the future price of the  yellow metal, which has been  pegged at U.S. $35 an ounce  since 1934.  Similar, though less spectacular     runs     on the U.S. dollar  have   occurred  in  the  past   20  years, and following the uneasy  gold  market   situation of  1959,  when    private   demand almost  doubled, the Gold    Pool    was  formed in an effort to maintain  stability  in  gold  markets   and  thus in the international monetary   system!.   Eight  major   industrial nations (the U.S., U.K.,  Germany,     Italy,     Belgium,  Switzerland,    the     Netherlands  and   France   who   dropped   out  in June, 1967), agreed to supply  the  London  market  with  gold  from   their   reserves  whenever  needed to support the $35 price.  This    arrangement    effectively  dampened speculation until the  recurring crises of the last six  months.  Total private demand last  year, concentrated in the fourth  quarter, was so great that it  absorbed not only the estimated  $1.4 billion new gold produced  but also $1.6 billion from world  monetary stocks. An additional  $2 billion at least is estimated  to have been taken by private  buyers in the first two and a  half months of this year alone.  The drain from monetary stocks  became so serious that the Gold  Pool was formally disbanded  March 17 and a two-price system instituted. Under this system the U.S. $35 price applies  only to gold moving in official  transactions between governments. All other transactions in  gold take place in a marekt  where the forces of demand and  supply determine the price.  The  recent approval  by  the  executive directors of the I.M.

Q. Is capital murder the  murder only of a prison guard,  policeman or sheriff?  A. This is a popular misconception, under the new provisions in the criminal, code  separating murder into the two  offences af capital and noncapital murder. Capital murder  is very complicated . to define  but includes murder in many  other circumstances, for example, planned and deliberate  murder.  Q. Can you settle an argument? Can a person be executed only for capital murder? If,  for any other crimes, what are  they?  A. A person may be executed if convicted of: 1. capital  murder; 2. treason, certain  types of treason;     3.    Piracy,  under certain circumstances;  4. Under military law: Traitorous or cowardy misconduct in  the presence of the enemy,  traitorous breach of security,  traitorous surrender or co-operation with the enemy, spying  for the enemy, mutiny with  violence and officer on board  ship  failing  to   defend  convoy.  Q. I read where a juvenile  charged with murder was found  not guilty because he had been  sniffing glue at the time. Other  times you read where people  are acquitted because they were  drunk, can this be so? Can you  explain?  A. This is correct. Before a  person can be convicted of any  criminal offence, it must be  proved that he had a guilty  mind or a guilty intention. If  a person was so drunk or in  such a stupor at the time of  the commission of the act that  he was incapable of forming  such an intention, he is not  legally guilty.  N.

Paetkau, medical staf *  chairmjari:  The year 19&7 continued tJ.*  trend of increiased activity in  all phases of medical activity.  The medical staff was increased to nine and two dentists. Included in the increased service  was the activity in the out-patient department, greater utilization of the physiotherapy, and  greater use ^laboratory ser-  ��� vices. "v7;-:7'7- ���.."���:������ ->;-y  The program of post-graduate  training was continued. It has  become very apparent that the  ��� present hospitals facilities are  not adequate, and the medical  staff's activity supports the expansion project. The anticipated  community growth will place  even greater demands on our  hospital.  The need for present expansion is urgent and in the near  future will be acute.  The medical staff thanks all  professional and non-professional staff for their help in making  this a very satisfactory year,  also the hospital auxiliaries  whose donations fill a real and  obvious need:  We look forward to the chal-  lenge of 1968 with anticipation.  Mrs. Joy Philp, chairman, of  the co-ordinating council of the  auxiliares to St. Mary's Hospital, took pleasure in announcing a most successful year for  our organization. Eight meetings were held in the Hospital  board room with an average attendance of 13. The treasurer's  report showed a bank balance  of $366.  The Volunteers Shopping Service continues to provide a most  needed service and we are most  grateful to all the dedicated women who carry on this work.  Thanks also go to all who have  contributed so generously to the  balby case, which has shown a  marked increase in sales this  past /ear. The hairdressing service has also been-most appreciated by the patients.  A Thrift Shop, sponsored by  the council, was opened in 1067  and had a most outstanding  year. Over $3,500 was raised for  future use of the hospitaLTfPlans  were finalized for the use; of the  Hospital Cottage and property  for the shop and are proving  most satisfactory to all concerned.  Christmas gifts for the patients this year were looked after (by the Halfmoon Bay Auxiliary, and the <ba1>y spoon for  the first baby of the New Year  was purchased by the Pender  Harbour Auxiliary.  ; The Friendship Tea, an annual affair, where all memjbers of  the six auxiliaries get together,  was held this year in Port Mellon and was most enjoyable, i  In April, the Lower Mainland  Regional conference was held in  Richmond, and it gives me  pleasure to report we had the  largest representation at this  meeting of any hospital. Probably as a result, we were asked to host this year's conference  at Sechelt.  The combined, auxiliaries  agreed to the purchase and the  equal sharing of cost of two  heart machines and a de-static  machine for the operating room.  Other purchases of equipment  ���by the individual auxiliaries  brought the total expended to  $4,081. It was felt that other  money raised be held in abeyance till the plans for the new  addition to the hospital are finalized.  Mrs. Ina Grafe, Volunteers to  St. Mary's Hospital director, re-  Dollar!  ported that the combined auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital  personal shoppers called on patients Monday, Wednesday and  Friday, each week and served  741 patients, time 36_J hours 20  minutes, goods ordered amounted, to $754.  The hairdressing service head  ed by Mrs. Marge Burley, now  has six volunteers who served  22 patients. These volunteers  are on call whenever a patient  wishes her hair done.  Mrs. Irene Rurtnick, and Mrs.  Rosa Swan were in charge of  baby photos. They took 75 photos. Cigarette sales were discontinued in May with a profit  of $30.11.  The magazine racks' are kept  in good order by Mrs. Ada  Dawe who twice weeldy rotates  the magazines which come by  subscription from the auxiliaries and various individuals.  Mrs. Eva Hayward looked after the gift counter. Knitting was  done by members of the auxiliaries and also by non-_nembers.  This is greatly appreciated' and  many beautiful articles were  sold. Besides laiitwear the show  case carries stationery and  other incidentals. Total profit  for the year was $144.20, time  52 hours by one volunteer.  Many volunteers contributed  willingly to provide these worth  while services, and co-operation  Bypass route protested  Editor: I wish to register a  protest7 against the proposed,  route of highway 101 from Langdale through the Giibsons area.  I consider this location to be  harmful, dangerous and unnecessary.  It is harmful and dangerous  as it places a busy, high-speed  highway through what will soon  be a built-up residential area  of Gibsons. A considerable number of homes will be situated  north of the highway and people and vehicles will be requir-  er to cross this frequently at  risk to get to the Gibsons shopping and business district.  It is particularly harmful and  destructive as it cuts through  the Elphinstone Secondary  school property reducing the  land area which may be des-  parately needed for later expansion. It cuts through the  Brothers Memorial park actually dividing it into two parts  separated by a forbidding barrier when the original idea  was   to   have   a   large unified  Meetings with  A postponement of meetings  with Indian Band spokesmen to  discuss the Indian Act is ..announced by the Hon. Arthur  Laing. "I do this with considerable reluctance," the minister  said.   ' . :,'..,  The minister stated he had  been asked by a number of  Indian leaders r and organizations to postpone the meetings  and to provide more time for  study. They also wished to  avoid all possibility of the question being invaded by political  considerations in the election  period.  The minister said the meetings will be re-scheduled for  immediately after June 25.

This asset, if created,  will be basically of the owned  type. It will consist of a bookkeeping entry, denominated in  U.S. dollars (but with a fixed  gold value) and apportioned to  members in proportion to their  quotas.

Inaugural run from Langdale for the new Sunshine  Coast Queen will take place  Thursday, {May 16, on the 1  o'clock trip leaving Langdale, Hon. Isabel Dawson,  minister without portfolio,  has announced.  .ary now  four years old  Four years ago, on May 11,  seven months before the completion of St. Mary's Hospital, a  ceremony at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall installed the.  first officers in the newly-formed Roberts Creek Auxiliary. Of  the 33 women who joined the  organization, most were there  to witness the installation which  was performed by Mrs. D.  Fyles/ past president of the  Gibsons auxiliary.  The original officers were  Mrs. L. Flumerfelt, Mrs. A.  Swanson, Mrs. S. Rowland, Mrs.  R. Birkin, Mrs. R. McSavaney,  Mrs. L. Farr, Mrs. C. Beeman,  and Mrs. J. T. Newman.  The auxiliary was formed a  month earlier, April 13, at a  meeting which took place at  Earl Haig Camp, with Mrs. N.  Ball in the chair.    ,  During the four years that,  have elapsed since that day the  the auxiliary has made many  worthwhile donations to the hospital, both separately and in  conjunction with its five sister  auxiliaries.  A.G. Fellowes  Allan Gilmore Fellowes passed away in hospital on April 27.  Born in Toronto, Mr. Fellowes  came to Vancouver in 1911. Active in sports, he organized and  captained the Towers Hockey  club which became a source of  pride to Vancouver and famous  in hockey circles. When it disbanded in 1930, scrap books and  records were placed in the  Sports Hall of Fame.  He was a member of a tennis  club, a rowing club and the  Vancouver Riding and Driving  club. He served as trustee on  the Vancouver school board for  six years and was secretary of  the B.C. School Trustees Association for 12 years.  In 1938 he married Helen Evans, and four years later they  bought their summer home at  Roberts Creek and have spent  all possible weekends and holidays   there.     I .,.7;..;..>.'  After retiring from his insurance business in 1963, Mr. Fellowes made plans to move to  Roberts Creek and started remodelling the camp for a permanent home. The move was  to take effect in September of  last year, but in August he suffered a stroke from which he  did not recover.  He leaves his wife Helen, son  John, of Roberts Creek; two  daughters, Miss Mary Fellowes  and Mrs. J. (Frances) Brown,  Vancouver, and a brother, F. B.  Fellowes, Vancouver. The funeral service was held April 30  in St. Mary's Kerrisdale church,  Rev. Boyd officiating.

From the iperdominantly musical program of the past two  years which had to be based on  Elphinstone Auditorium, Festival 68 is expanding to embrace  the whole Sunshine Coast community, to provide a spectrum  of entertainment' for young and  old, opportunities to watch experts at work and occasions for  personal involvement.  For a rollicking start with fun  for the young in heart of whatever age the Arts Council has  invited Dick Oertel to return  with his famous marionettes. He  will be bringing an entirely new  show but an old time favorite  story of the intrepid' and resourceful   children  who thwart  their parents attempt to get rid  of them, outwit the wicked witch  to be united with their repentant family, Grimm's perennial  favorite Hansel and' Gretel.  The jpuppeteers who are members of Vancouver's Puppetry  Guild, who have made previous  visits to Port Mellon, Gibsons  and Sechelt, will stage their  show this year at Pender Harbour in the Secondary School  gymnasium at 7:30 p.m. on May  11.  The following week, May 18,  an Art in Action similar to the  successful event held two years  ago will take place in Sechelt,  and in June music and dancing  programs are planned.

ANDY     CAPP  There is mounting unrest  among those concerned with  education. At the recent Penticton meeting of the B.C.  Teachers Federation, attended  by M. B. Mactavish, David  White, and Eugene Yablonski,  delegates representing 19,000  teachers recognized that a  crisis existed. They called for  a grass roots dialogue to focus  on educational problems.  The Sechelt Teachers Association agrees that there has been  a breakdown in communication  between parents, teachers, administration and government  officials. In an attempt to  remedy this situation the association will offer for publication, articles and briefs that  may help to clarify the problem. The following is such an  article. It is quoted, with permission, from the CBC Television program, Viewpoint. The  author is Stanley Cohen, an  educational    specialist    and an  associate editor of the Montreal  Star. He said:  What is happening in Quebec  ��� this mounting unrest among  teachers��� is happening all  across Canada and the United  States. And Quebec is not the  only place to have had teachers'  strikes in recent months.  There are three major issues  in these disputes: money, working conditions and professional  dignity. In terms of money,  teachers for the most part still  don't get salaries befitting their  academic and professional  training and their years of  classroom experience. It's about  time we stopped equating their  incomes with those of unionized  labor, and compare them with  engineers and experienced accountants, let alone doctors and  dentists.  With regard to working conditions, they are far from ideal  Or conductive. There is still a  myth that teachers have it easy  GIBSONS JULY 1st CELEBRATION  A meeting will be held at the Gibsons Munftipal Hall  on THURSDAY, MAY 16th, 1968, af 8 p.m.  All interested parties and representatives of clubs,  groups and other organizations are urged to attend.

Sure,  some join the profession for  this reason but studies have  shown that a good teacher  spends more than 50 hours per  week at work. This includes  time in the classroom, preparation and grading, non-teaching  duties, like standing guard  over a water fountain and  supervising extra - curricular  activities without additional  pay. Also, many are enrolled  in courses after school hours  and during summer vacations.  In terms of professional dignity: It is a search for personal dignity as well as for community respect befitting their  difficult task and their professional skills. Teachers are still ;  taken for granted.  As adults with a great deal  of influence over the young,  they have always been expected to display a public, behavior  more exemplary than the rest  of us. like clergymen, they  were expected to make financial sacrifices in order to carry  out some mission in life. And  in many places they still have  little say in what or how they  are to teach, or in how a school  is to be run. They are part of  a paternalistic system. In effect, they are to be seen but  not heard outside their classroom walls.  All that has changed, particularly with younger teachers.  They are of a different generation, they are no longer submissive, they see no dichotomy  between unionism and professionalism. At university they  challenged many of our established institutions, only to find  themselves in the middle of  one. They regard much of what  they are required to teach as  irrelevant.  Teachers    are    not    without  fault_4 to be sure.  They  have ^  often Y protected    incompetence  '  in the name    of    professional  solidarity;   they   have   resisted Y  changes    in    curriculum    and  methods;   some  of their union  leaders no doubt have personal  power; ambitions; and when the  chipsiare ;&own, they have often  sold put ibe higher salaries at  the   expense of better working  conditions. They are, after all,  only human.  But if schools exist for children ��� no matter what beautiful buildings are erected, no  matter what curricular innovations are made, the key to  everything is the teacher. Good  teachers will only be attracted  to our school systems and remain in them if they receive,  good pay, decent professional  working conditions, high morale,, a consultative role and  the respect they deserve. And  there is nothing degrading about  their having to use collective  bargaining methods in order to  achieve those goals.  If any group wishes to have  a teacher speak to them regarding this matter please contact,  Mr. David White, Roberts  Creek, B.C.

By JACK DAVIS, MP.  ;       (Coast Capilano). ,  ���*: Onet of the reasons Prime  Minister Trudeau gave for calling the federal general election  on June 25 was that there was  One of the reasons Prime  now a million young Canadians  of voting age who had never  had a chance to express their  opinion in the conduct of national affairs. These, were the  young men and women who had  reached age 21 since November  1965.  But there is an even more  compelling reason. For the first  time in our history we will have  representation by population.  Constituencies, from one end of <  the' country to the other, will  be roughly the same population  size. Each will foe inhabited by  75,000 Canadians. This is a far  cry from the 6,000 member constituency of the Madeleine Islands in Quebec or the 265,000  riding of York-Scarborough  There are shifts in party re-  presentaition all right. Effectively they benefit the city based Liberals and New Democrats and weaken the conserva  tives whose strength, particularly in the Diefenbaker era,  lay mainly in the countryside.  The swing is not as pronounced as the pundits first thought.  On re-allocating the results from  52,000 polling stations in the  1965 election they have found  the Liberals would only have  won five more seats. These five  seats, raising the Liberal total  to 136 out of 265, would however have given the Pearson  administration an overall majority.  Redistribution had it ibeen in  effect in 1965 would also have  raised the New Democrats from  21 to 24 seats. The Conservatives would have dropped from  97 to 92 seats, the Creditiste  from 9 to 8 seats and the Social Credit from 5 to 4 seats.  If the 1965 election had been  fought in the new ridings, a  shift of five percent in the vote  would have caused an upset in  no less than 44 swing constituencies. In other words, five  more votes in every > 100 could  have added considerably to the  Liberal party's  scant  majority  Coast News, May 9, 1968,  in the house of commons or,  alternatively, could have put  Mr. Diefenbaker back in power.  The average age of the Canadian voter is a little lower.  In 1968 it will he 40 as opposed to 41 years in 1965. And  more electors, regardless of  their age, will probably come  out and vote. These trends, together with the pronouncements  of our new leaders and new  candidates will make for a more  exciting election in 71968. But  the results of the vote on June  25 still remains, very much, inr  doubt.  sin life  can  Like ail the dairy products  you want when you want  them���which is a/ways!.  It's hard to think of cfairy  products not being in:plentiful supply (how wbulcfcyou  explain that to the family?).  They are, because a lot of  people see to ft that you  have all you need. That includes Canada's 200.000  milk and cream producers,  the firms which process and  merchandise dairy products, and the Canadian  Dairy Commission.  There are two main parts  to the dairy industry. One is  bottled milk and cream.

Part of the job of the  Dairy Commission is to help  assure that dairy farmers,  whose milk and cream goes  into manufactured products, get an income which  permits them to serve consumers with a steady, reliable supply.  How do we do it?  First, we support the market prices of dairy products.  That's a protection for the  producerand the consumer.  It gives the producer a  steady income from his  milk and cream, which he  needs like everybody else.  And it assures the consumer of steady prices for dairy  products!.  Market prices, though/  aren't enough to give pro  ducers the income they  need to stay in business.  And without federal help  supplies would drop, and  prices wou|d increase.  So we supplement their  market income by help-out  payments: (not hand-outs)  but only for the amount of  milk and cream for the products which the market  needs (we don't encourage  the production of costly  surpluses).  Our aim is a stable, profitable dairy industry���and a  continuing supply of high  quality dairy products on the  Canadian market.  So ;by all means go on  taking dairy products for  granted. You can afford to���  because we don't.  Commission  OTTAWA  HON. J. J. GREENE. MINISTER 8       boast News, May 9, 1S68.

To inform the piiblicY and  members of the ���regional district board of directdrsY Hon.  Dan Campbell, minister of  municipal affairs has issued the  followting letter directed to the  chairman of Regional .district  boards.     ���' 7.Y'-'Y    ''"''  This letter' was sent to Frank  West, chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board  and reads as follows:  Dear Mr. West:  It has  been  brought  to  the  attention of both, my staff and  myself that there is  some uncertainty in the  minds  of the  Directors of many regional districts as to precisely what the  government    ^envisages     their  /role to.be. While we have,tried  vf.to'' outiihe : our  concept|TOf the 7  Y role of the' regional: ^strict,- ity-  '': is  quite  evident  thaTJ it;bea:rs '  elaboration. 7 Y-  I   have   set out  below   what  I consider an appropriate pro-  > gramYof the kinds of activities ���  in Y which Y reg-ohaiY districts  could engage. I would not; want'  it to be inferred that riegional  districts   could  not   engage   in  other    activities    nor Twould I  want it inferred that a^r,egionaJ..,  district should enter iMthesje'_.  fields all at, once.   / Y^ VY   .  The activities lof Regional dis- '  tricts   appear   to   break   down  into    three   broad   categories,  first;  those that, are  of rather  general benefit to the citizens  of a region regardless of where  they live, secondly, those that  have a more limited benefit to  particular areas and groups of  people within the region and  lastly, certain actiyitieis for  which there is clear gain if the  region in effect undertakes  these on behalf of the7member  areas as a work i or service  which in some] cases would be  on  a contract ^ basis.  Dealing, with the first group  we' have: .'   -yr.'-:' y 7 Y '- -.Y/Y  1. The local responsibility for  the provision of hospitals and  hospital facilities.  2.

Lastly, we see the regional  board undertaking and providing certain services for the  members on a service or contract basis and in this we would  include:  1.

The following letter was sent  to Hon: Isabel. Dawson, MLA  for this constituency:  "Dear Mrs.-Dawson:  ." "Once again, the International  Brotherhood ~ of Pulp, Sulphite  and Paper Mill Workers membership wishes to protest the inadequate ferry service, even  though appeals to the Socred  government seem to ibe a waste  of time.  "It should be noted that before the government decided to v  form its own navy, we had a  late ferry every night, enabling  the residents of this area to vis- -  it evening events in Vancouver  without the cost of staying overnight. There was also a ferry  early enough in, the morning  that a day worker could get to  work by 8 o'clock. Since the  government take over, both  these advantages have disappeared." So much for the government's consideration for the  voters and tax payers of this  area.  "With regards to the tourists,  Easter weekend was a good example, cars were lined up for  a mile and a half on a public  highway blocking normal traffic. Families with children sat  for six and seven hours without even a washroom and to  ad_ insult to injury a radar  trap, operated by the Red Coated Revenue Collectors, was stationed not too far back in an  area where there is no excuse  for a 20 mph zone. This was to  ensure that the tourist paid his  $25 fee for coming to the Sunshine Coast. This sort of treatment is bound to encourage  more tourist trade?  "Now the government has the  -nerve to ''propose a schedule  with two hours and 40 minutes  between ferries, if this is. an  example of progress, we are in  sad shape.  "To sum up, the government  collects taxes from this area,  in an amount larger than the  average person thinks and gives  nothing in return. In a word the  ferry service STINKS..  "We are soliciting the support  of our sister^local at Powell River Whose members are also  subjected to "- this disgraceful  service, and no douibt our displeasure w^ll be demonstrated  at the polls during the next election. ��� Lome E* Smitji, secretary."      v  Hi-Cs to have  .v  - V - ��  young speaker  Arrangementifvare under way  for having Ya�� a speaker a  member ^of Y;Jthe; Older Boy's  Parliament.

Gope  B. L. Cope of Roberts Creek  celebrated his 85th birthday  Monday. Here are some highlights of his life:  Born in LeMars, Iowa on May  6, 1883, moved to Carberry,  Manitoba in March 1893. Worked on father's farm most of the  time until August 1899 when I  entered the employ of the Union  Bank of Canada as junior. Moved to their branch at Rapid  City in. January 1903, got sick  of the job so went to Montreal  in September 1906 to work for  the Sovereign Bank of Canada.  Saw that they were going broke  so went to Lethbridge, Alberta  as assistant cashier of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation  company who had the railway  lines to Cardston and Coutts  and a large irrigation system  and about 500,000 acres of land  to sell,* also operated the Gait  Coal Mines.  When the miners went on  strike on the Crow's Nest Pass  I got the Lethbridge Board of  Trade to call a meeting at Macleod but got tired of the endless arguing so moved a resolution that the federal government be. wired asking them to  send a councilliator out to settle the strike. W. L. Mackenzie  King arrived two days later  and settled the strike in two  hours.  I was the one who suggested  the post office advertizing, cancellation stamp be used the  first place in Canada for that.  Went to Toronto in September  1912 and went to work the day  after I arrived for the Retail  Merchants Association of Canada. Was told by Charlie Burton, chairman of the (board of  directors of Simpsons-Sears,  how collection agencies were  opening up offices, collecting a  lot of money then vanishing so  I organized the first bonded  collection agency in Canada.  Select elementary supervisor  Coast News, May 9, 1968.  In 1916 I joined the staff of  Mr. G. T. Clarkson the receiver  and manager' and trustee who  was always appointed to the  big jobs by the court and I was  the one sent out to represent  him. First important job the  National Railway association  which had gone broke after  about half a million in stock had  been subscribed and about $135,-  000 paid in, so there was about  $365,000 unpaid stock subscriptions to collect. Held a meeting in Revelstoke where I was  told to get out or they would  hang me. I held the meeting  and had good success.  Next big job was the largest  department store in Ottawa  420 staff, half-million in stock  and 36 departments. I had never  worked in a retail store in my  life. Took charge for the receiver on June 23, 1918 with his  instructions to get the store on  a paying basis so it could be  sold. It was sold on Dec. 9 the  same year.   ,  Next big job was Matagami  Pulp   and   Paper  Company   at  Mr. Walter J. Barton, now at  Lund, B.C. will be the supervisor of elementary grades of  the school district following the  return of Mrs. Grace Wiren,  present supervisor to teaching  an elementary remedial class  for one year before retirement,  the school board announces.  Mr. Barton received his education in England, and taught  schools there moving about to  the Channel Islands, then across  to the West Indies and into the  northern part of British Columbia and the Yukon. He has  taught all grades from one to  12.  The board has decided to re-  UIC news  Q. I chose to serve 30 days  in prison rather than try to  pay a $100 fine for making what  they said were false statements  to get $150 in Unemployment Insurance benefit I had not been  entitled to. Now the UIC is trying to make me repay the $150.  Why is that? I think I paid  my debt when I went to prison  and even spent Christmas there.  The judge imposed a fine of  $100, with alternative of 30 days  in jail, because you obtained  the $150 fraudulently. As you  made no attempt to pay the  fine, the jail term applied, but  the penalty imposed by the  court did not in any sense represent the $150 you have  wrongfully obtained from the  Unemployment Insurance fund.  The Unemployment Insurance  Commission has passed on answers to some of the questions  that have puzzled contributors.  Your question too can be referred to this feature for reply.  Q. I am waiting for the first  payment on my Unemployment  Insurance claim. How long do  I have to wait before I receive  it?  It should normally arrive' in  the third or fourth week after  you filed your claim. That is  provided you have met the conditions of entitlement.  u\uraraniiiui��uirauuiramimuMUMMuuiu���M\itmr.';w  ARE BEST SELLERS  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886-2622  UP TO 3 p.m. TUESDAY  WMQIfflU-  tain Olaf Kirgan in a temporary position until July at which  time he would take over the  position of janitor at West Sechelt Elementary school until  his 66th birthday.  A deficit covering seven performances of Holiday Playhouse  in this area amounted to $592  which the board will cover.  Holiday Playhouse supplied recent entertainment for youngsters at a nominal cost.  Pender Harbor Secondary  school has been accredited for  the two school periods ending  this year and next. The Hospital  Improvement District directors  have asked the board as a taxpayer supported organization  that it should not be charged  rental fees for Jhbldihg meetings  with ratepayers. The matter  Was sent to the policy committee for solution.  Smooth Rock Falls in Northern  Ontario, mill with 150 tons  daily capacity. Arrived there in  late September 1921. They had  their own forest supply good  for 50 years, employeed up to  2,000 men when real busy but  were only making just over  100 tons a day. Mattagami River is about 65 feet deep 700  feet wide.  We had a flood in 1922  due to extra heavy snow and  when I saw that the holding  booms were not properly snagged I told the boom crew to  go home and five of us took  over the boats. I. ordered a  floodlight put near where we  had to work, ordered a railroad length and big log hauled  over by a small hill, had a V  shaped chunk dug out of the  ' hill and put the holding wire  - calble through, it and wrapped  soundly arround the railroad  rail and big log so that the  whole side of the hill would  have to be pulled away if it  broke loose. Result? we lost  about 100 cords of logs while  the mill at Kapuskasing, just  ten miles west of us lost about  half-a-million cords, and they  had expert engineers from the  U.S. there to advise them.  The ordinary flow on the Mattagami River is about 2,000 galr  Ions a minute but at the height  of this flow it was 40,000 gallons a minute, I had the man  in charge of the electric plant  measure it for me at its high  point.  I did not even know what  sulphite was when I left Toronto to go to that mill. When  I left that mill in January 1927  we were making 130 tons of  unbleached and as we had built  a bleaching plant out of profits while I was in charge we  were making 50 tons of that  so the total was 180 tons a day  from a mill with only 150 tons  a day capacity.  I got my first taste of police  work at that mill. We had our  own man, sworn in as a provincial policeman but when he  needed help I was the one who  did it. When appointed a justice of the peace at Minstrel  Island and after that promoted  to a Stipendiary Magistrate the  RCMP detachment was 29  miles away so as I was a peace  officer I had to do the police  work in the absence of the  regular police,- and often when  there was a policefman in  Minstrel Island and I could not  find him. I had about 12 years  police nyork altogether and only  hit once and it cost Mm 300.  This does not cover one quarter  of my experience in various  ways at various places under  * various conditions, many of  them quite dangerous.  They say If God is with you,  you need not fear what man  can do to you. I have proved  that to be correct.       .  BACK HOE  & LOADER  SERVICE  ��� THKHING  ��� DITCHING  ��� EXCAVATING  GRAVE!

On the desk  sits a modest container and a  card inviting borrowers to donate any small sum they wish  in lieu of a set fee.
