"'������...  He also announced that from  previous referenda about $30,000  remained unspent and that he  hoped the board would be able  to use this source of cash.  Trustee Sheila Kitson reported [ on Yrneetings with Sechelt  Elementary school and other  officials on the proposed building program there. The plan  for expansion calls for the ac-.  commodation of about 600  pupils. In the meantime to help  out, four portables from Gibsons area will be moved and  erected at Sechelt at a cost of  about $3,000. This will take  care of the situation until new  buildings would be ready.  Negotiations will continue with  Sechelt Indian band and the department of Indian Affairs concerning the acquisition of Indian  land in Sechelt for a proposed  new secondary school. It is understood   the   referendum   now  being prepared for presentation  will include only land purchase  money and not the cost of the  school. The referendum will be  chiefly for money to cover expansion  of  Sechelt  Elementary  school'." ' '" ""'.' '"' v","/'--- ���"-  ; With Mason and Porpoise Bay  roads now paved it was suggested by Trustee Leo Johnson  that perhaps it would be simpler to accommodate the-now  closed Halfmoon Bay pupils at  West Sechelt school with possibly some of the higher grades  attending  Sechelt  school.  Principle   W: L.   Reid   of  Sechelt Elementary school reported that come time during late  July  a  radio  and school petty  cash of between $20 and $25 was  removed  from   the   school.   No  visible   means. of  forceful   en.  trance was noted. Board members   suggested. that   such   an  amount of cash should not have  been left at the school. At that  period there were men working  inside   and   outside   the   school  buildings.  Remedial elementary summer  classes drew 96 pupils and the  average attendance was 86 per-  fent. While the classes did not  pay for themselves, income being $960 against expenditure of  $1,575, including four teacher  salaries, board members thought  the project worthwhile. Reading  and arithmetic were chief subjects.  The board also learned that  adult education revenue totalled  $6,500 for the past school year  with a teacher payroll of close  to    $7,000    plus    $3,000    other  expenses.

The layouts did more than  what.the printed word could do.  They gave a graphic picture of  the area involved and with well  defined lines showed what was  proposed.  A good many people checked  the sewage proposal and found  it to be informative, giving  them a better picture of what  was intended. .    \  Gibsons Rod and Gun club  also had a good exhibit with  members of the club on deck  each day explaining the objectives of the club.  Bill Malyea, as master of  ceremonies for the entire fair  period, introduced Hon. Mrs.  Isabel Dawson, Mayor and Mrs.  William Swain of Sechelt and  acting Mayor Wally Peterson of  Gibsons'who extended greetings  to all at the official opening.  Mrs.^Berriice Chamberlin and  the July 1 Celebration Queen  Lee of Gibsons were also remembered when corsages were  pinned on the honored guests.  Eric Prittie, president of the  Farmers' Institute wished the  fair well thus paving the way  for Mrs. G. Corlett, oldest member of the Fall Fair committee  to cut the ribbon guarding the  entry to 'the fair.  On entering the hall one could  not .help but examine the fine  painting of Gibsons by Kathleen  Wells of Gibsons which had  been presented to Hon. Mrs.  Dawson ! earlier.

Yet garbage  ^ was stre\vh alt over the place.  '. He is giving. some thought to  the idea that signs spotted here  'and^thexeidirjecting^-to-'th'e garbage might have some effect.  The containers are available but  the garbage must be carried to  them. There is no cleanup man  available.  g"  Remember the fun produced last year arid the year before with  log rolling at the Volunteer Firemen's water sports day at the  Municipal beach in Gibsons?  There wil be log rolling again this year and with the naturally  rising shoreline at the beach there will be plenty of room for all  landlubbers to watch without getting their feet wet.  The varied log rolling events provide considerable fun and also  bring out the stamina of the contestants, particularly in the dunking  competitions.  The big day will start at about 11 a._n. with swim races for  the younger element which will wind-up towards late afternoon  with the loggers taking over and showing their.wares. First event  on the card will be the annual (long distance swim from Keats  Island to the Municipal beach. Brian Thicke won it last year and  his time was 35 minutes. An effort will be made to beat that time  this year. .  Pancakes on Ausf. 24  The. Sunshine Coast Kiwanis  club is '��� holding its annual Pancake Supper and boat draw on  Saturday, August 24. on the  Government wharf  at  Gibsons.  This event takes place on, the  eve prior to the Vancouver Sun  Salmon Derby and each year,  more and more boat owners  are coming, into Gibsons to be  in the heart of the salmon fishing area for an early start on'  Derby day.  In addition to the Pancake  supper, plans have been made  for. a free public dance on the  wharf and to climax the evening a draw will be .made for a  uimraiimnnunimiinuiuinn!uiiminuiuuiuiiiuitoii\i!��iiiunni!

In view of the ever increasing  number of people, attending the  pancake fry, permission has  been obtained to use the complete facilities of the government wharf. Public co-operation  is requested in removing all  vehicles from the wharf and  approach ramp prior to noon  August 24.  Lyn Vernon won $1000 in the  Merola Program in San Francisco for the voice with the  most promise. This is. an annual event.

In the past the bus would  leave the traffic lane and park  to allow Langdale passengers  and those meeting cars on the  parking lot to get off there. 2       Coast News, Aug. 15, 1968.

Fall Fairs held in hot summer weather are apparently having  their troubles. A good miariy of them this year report a falling  away of interest. The fact that the Sunshine Coast Fall Fair was  held a week earlier coupled with hot weather could be a very  good reason.  Inclusion of the word fall in the title of the fair organization is  somewhat misleading as the fall is usually September weather and  then the actual start of the fall season does not come until Sept. 15..  Perhaps if the tfall fair aspect was dropped and it became the  Sunshine Coast Annual Exhibition it might open the doors to something interesting. Usually the word exhibition has been applied to  larger centre events. Perhaps the time has come when the concept  ���of. a fair and exhibiition become completely synonymous regardless  of the size of the event.7  Even if the Sunshine Coast Fall Fair did change to being an  exhibition it would still have trouble finding accommodation in September. Once school has opened the use of school buildings is out.  We do need either fair or exhibition grounds and buildings. It is  something local organizations could work on.  A warning: REGISTER!  Next week's Issue of the Coast News will contain an advertisement of interest to voters in the Sunshine Coast school district area.  It will draw to their notice the fact they are required to register  their names if they want to vote on school matters.. There will be  three categories which can register for voting purposes .owner-  electors, residenke_ectors and tenant-electors.  The advertisement will contain the required information to  allow individuals to make up their minds as to the category in  which they fall.  This editorial is written not to fill space but to acquaint the  many, many folk who during the regional college vote last March  found themselves unable to cast a vote because they had not  registered.  This registration costs nothing except a little time. It becomes  of value to you when an issue comes up and you feel you should  express your opinion on it. It would not be an exaggeration to say  that most of the people who found they were not on the voters list  had more to gain by being listed than many of those who were  listed.  The three age groups in the area reveal the 20 to 54 year olds  as being the chief group with the younger element to 19 coming  second with 2626 and the oldsters third with 1175.  So. the message is: If you want to vote, register.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  July, 1963 was moist with  3.46 inches falling during seven  days. On the wettest day 1.48  inches fell. High temperature  was 75 and low 45.  The architect's sketch of the  new Bank of Montreal building  in Gibsons was on display, Ted  Henniker,   manager  announces.  Mermaid Queen Nadine Gant  was chosen to officially open  the Gibsons Volunteer Firemen's  sports day August 25.  Tenders have been called for  the construction of a nurses  home for St. Mary's Hospital,  Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  Weather reports for July reveal that no rain fell at all during that month. Highest temperature during the month was  93.7 degrees and the lowest  48.7. Cloud cover amounted to  34 percent.  Tenders have been called by  the federal department of public works for the breakwater to  be erected as an extension to  the present wharf.  The Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  opened August 15 with entries  coming close to the 500 mark.  The HSP Employees' Charity  Fund disbursed $500 to organ-,  izations involved in non-profit  charity work in the area.  20 YEARS AGO  Bob MacNicol has resigned  his position with the Canadian  Legion provincial command.  Both he and Mrs. MacNicol will  reside in Gibsons.  To accommodate pupils,  school rooms have been arranged in Gibsons Community hall,  the Legion hall, and a room  in the High school basement.  Indications point to a full house  when school starts.  Parking limitations were discussed by Gibsons council resulting in no parking on the  water side of the highway also  no parking at the United church  corner.  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lueken  have sold their home in Vancouver and will move into a  Wilson   Creek   home.  Credit for  fur farmers  Long-term credit for fur farmers is announced by Agriculture minister J.J. Greene.  Through an amendment to the  Farm Credit Act regulations,  the definition of farming has  been expanded to include the  raising of fur-bearing animals,  thus making fur farmers eligible for loans from the Farm  Credit Corporation.  The decision to make this  credit available, said Mr.  Greene, was taken after a detailed survey of the mink-farming industfy by corporation  officials, with the cooperation of  the Canada Mink Breeders' association.  The minister noted the importance of the industry for export as well as domestic markets. He indicate! that the provision of long-term credit was  intended to strengthen the position of Canadian producers in a  very competative business.  By Dr. ALFRED J. PRINCE  Dr. Prince is associate"  professor of sociology at  Eastern Washington State  College, where he directs  the undergraduate social  work program. He is an ex- ^  perienced family and marriage counsellor and has  done extensive research into  family problems.  Another hazard to marital  success is intermarriage or  considerable and significant  differences between mates in  such factors as religion, race,  cultural background and economic level. These unions are  considered mixed marriages  from a sociological point of  view. Although many do sue- ���:���  ceedj, studies show that the  chances of a successful marriage are decreased when lines  of religion, race, ethnic and  social class are crossed. Wide  gaps between marriage partners  in these areas can create  special problems and extra  hazardousness.  of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied foi  Canada's constitution is in  the news a great deal lately  and many persons have made  enquiries revolving around the  division of law-making powers  between the federal and provincial governments. The question with regard to any particular subject, for example, crime  or sale of land, is which government may pass laws on it ���  the national government at Ottawa, or the particular provincial government concerned?.  Canada's basic constitutional  document is the British North  America act which is simply  an act of the British parliament  which came into force 100 years  ago. This act, or statute, divided responsibility between the  federal government and provincial governments as they were  set up at the time. The three  colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia  and New Brunswick were federally united and divided into  the four provinces of Ontario,  Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New  Brunswick and, of course, six  other provinces have joined  since.  Some countries have only one  government for the entire country, for example, France, New  Zealand, or Great Britain (if  we ignore the limited law making power of Northern Ireland  and the Isle of Man.) Other  countries are loose groups of  states with their own governments and a central government to deal with such common affairs as national defence  and foreign affairs, each individual state having the power  to declare itself independent.  The Soviet Union is, in theory,  such a country. A third type  of government falls in the middle with law making power  'divided and individual provin-  c^s or states not having the  legal power to secede from the  union. Examples are the U.S.A.,  Australia, West Germany and  Canada.  In Canada, the provincial governments may make laws on  property and civil rights, direct  taxation only, the setting up of  the provincial courts, municipal  affairs, land and all matters of  a local nature.  The federal government may  make laws on foreign affairs,  national defence, money and  banking, crime, divorce and  many other subjects including  all matters for the peace, order arid good government of  Canada ��� a sort of catch-all  to cover the items not mentioned.  Neither government can make  laws on the subjects assigned  to the other. The courts decide  whether the government in  question has exceeded its power regarding any particular  statute, and, over the years  they have declared numerous  statutes invalid; one such statute being the anti-margarine  legislation which plagued the  B.C. housewife for so many  years.  Unrealistic expectations of  what marriage can bring in  terms of interpersonal fulfillment plus undue emphasis on  the romantic motif can also  jeopardize a marriage. "The  dream of romantic ecstasy,  effortlessly sustained in marriage," writes one authority,  "has supplanted in our time  the age-old quest for the philosopher's stone; which, it was i  believed, would transform base  metal into gold."  'Marriage is a rewarding relationship. -But it cannot insure  complete happiness. It cannot  bring relief from all frustrating  experiences. It is not the panacea for all our problems. What  marriage delivers is strictly dependent on what husband and  wife biring to it in terms of  enlightened understanding and  sustained effort.  Husbands and wives who  hoped to find paradise in the  married state; comments one  authority,: put the blame on their  partners, . and conclude that  they have made a mistaken  choice. Sometimes, no doubt,  they have. But at least as often  they have asked more than was  reasonable of an average  human being.  Unrealistic and childlike expectations of what marriage  can bring in terms of personal  happiness and fulfillment can  result only in frustration and  early discontent with the marriage. Marriage, avers one  writer, suffers most from our  regarding it as a failure when  it falls below a perfect score.  Lastly, the importance of  parenthood as a binding force  in marriage has often been un-  derestimated. A child can intensify the attachment of husband  and wife to each other and  deepen their mutual regard and  affection, children in the home  can contribute to parents an  increase in the range and complexity of family interaction, an  expansion of family interests,  emotional satisfactions of lifelong duration, and insight into  the true meaning of life.  This is not to imply that  having children is the way to  insure marital happiness or to  solidify a marriage. Most married couples do, in fact, have  children ��� 8 put of every 10  couples. However, whether parenthood will be a binding force  in marriage will depend, in  large measure, on whether the  /Cioujple's preprarenttial ife^ation-  ship is characterized by love  and understanding. If this situation is not present, then, in all  likelihood, the net impact of  parenthood will be negative.  The above factors, briefly reviewed, are, in the opinion of  most authorities, some of the  major hazards to marriage and  family success.  Why do so many marriages  end in separation and divorce?  Why are so many others rocked  by constant conflict and quarreling? What are some of the  chief hazards to marriage and  family success?  One major hazard to marital  happiness is marrying too  young. The average age at  which young people marry in  the United States has been declining for the last half century.  In 1890, the typical groom was  22, the typical bride 20.  Today more than half of all  girls have married by the .time  they reach 20. Over "half of all  males' who marry do so before  their 23rd birthday. Thus, at the  age when young people reach  their majority, half of then-  are already married.  There are many reasons why  the age of marriage is low in  the United States. Certainly  going steady at a young age  motivates early marriage. To  this one must add the factor of  the country's economic growth  which makes it relatively easy  for young people to find jobs so  that a period of saving before  marriage is not regarded as important as it was a century ago.  Some of these marrying youngsters are also able to receive  .financial help from their  parents. In addition, some  marry young to escape . intolerable home conditions.  It must be remembered too  that many of these early marriages are forced because , of  pregnancy. In fact, between  one-third' to one-half of all  early teen-age marriages involve a premarital pregnancy.  Youthful marriages, of course,  do not automatically fail. Some  no doubt are successful. But  too many early marriages, because of the immaturity of the  couple and other reasons, do not  have a chance for success.  Accumulation of research data  shows clearly that the younger  the age at marriage, the higher  the divorce rate. Indeed, about  half of all divorces in our ��� country; involve those who married  before .their 20th year. One in-  vestiga-drfound that the divorce  jjate,; *of iwotirieh married before  age 18 was three times as high  as for women who married between ages 22-24. Another study  revealed that when both... partners were 16 or younger at the  time of marriage, the divorce  rate was 40,0 percent higher  than for marriages where the  husbands were 20-26 and the  wives 22-24.  uttnttuinuiiuuuuuuuiuuMmnrauiumiuuHuwiuiuuuiuuih.

This is not true. Pharmacists are taught much more, while attending  a college of pharmacy.  A pharmacist must know the art of compounding /and how to store medicines to preserve  potency. He must know the safe dosage of thousands of drugs. He must know their actions,  uses, and precautians while taking them, and  how to combine them safely with other drugs.  And, he must use this knowledge to check the  safety of every prescription he dispenses.  Your doctor can phone us. when you. need a  medicine.

Discovery of an old newspaper  called The Peninsula Times recalls to mind a claim made  some time ago that E. Parr  Pearson and others established  the Peninsula Times at Sechelt.  This does not appear to be  borne out by established fact.  The copy of the Peninsula  Times in my possession is dated Tuesday, Nov. 1, 1949. The  editor and publisher was Claude  S. .Hoocfspith and the printing  was done in West Vancouver at  tlhe Lions Gate Times office, if  my memory serves me well.  Gibsons was the ��� home port of  TIRE-RIFIC  Discounts  TIRES FOR ALL VEHICLES  Prices on Request  CARS ��� TRUCKS  OFF-ROAD EQUIPMENT  Will Install on-the-Spot  Call  886-2905  the Peninsula Tames. In those  days E. Parr Pearson, Bill  Sutherland and others were interested in the Coast News  which was then printed at  Powell River. At first the Coast  News had headquarters in Halfmoon Bay, then,at Sedhelt and  later at Gibsons.  Some of the writers for the  Peninsula Times of that period  were Madge Newman, Do Wort-  man and Hazel iC'ritlchell. In  those days it was a free delivery paper to every home between Port Mellon and Halfmoon Bay.  Some of the news stories covered items such as a bylaw to  ban 24 hours parking-in Gibsons, the Gambier Island Taxpayers' association under Francis Drage endeavored to split  the school district into two with  one part covering the islands  only, inclusion of the Headlands area in the village of Gibsons and a mild scarlet fever  epidemic at Sechelt.  The Peninsula Times eventually was taken over by the  Coast News.  I thought this information  might interest you.

Paintings by  Mrs, Morrison  to be displayed  Miss Jessie Morrison oif Vancouver, whose paintings will be  on display in the Gallery Shop:  until the end of the month has  been a member of the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council since its  inception fn 1966. The Morrisons  who have been summer visitors  to Gibsons since 1935 hope eventually to retire to their Marine  Drive home.  Jessie Morrison's interest in  painting was also fostered at  night school classes in Vancouver in 1961. Since then she has  taken every opportunity to increase knowledge and expand  her talent. She has taken art  courses at U.B.C. and the Vancouver School of Art as well as  lessons from private- teachers  including John Poole ^Yest. Vio-  lette Mahalme and Robert Alexander.;  Jessie Morrison does not confine herself to any one form of  art��� always reaching put for  new ideas and new ways of expressing ideas in art form. Her  paintings include7; landscapes,  flower arrangements' still life,  portraits and abstracts. As a  teacher of music it is natural  that she should be interested in  the correlation of music and art  and is experimenting with musical gestalt art, different' ways  - to express music in color, form  and pattern.  As the Gallery is7 so small  Mrs. Morrison will change her  display during the three weeks.  On August. 24th she will be  present at the Gallery from  2 to 4 p.m. Coffee will be served.

Know Canada  Throughout Canada's history  it has been the private welfare  ��� agencies that have pioneered in  the development of social welfare sendees. The first children's aid society was established in Toronto in 1891, and the  first prisoner's aid society in  Montreal in 1892. The first Canadian Conference of Charities  and Corrections��� a forerunner  of the Canadian Conference on  Social Work-���was held in Montreal in 1898. In 1899, the first  family agency, now the Family  Welfare Association, was established; and the first probation  service was organized in Ottawa in 1906 by the Ottawa Children's Aid Society. In 1914, the  first graduate school of social  work was organized iri Toronto.  The first community chest was  established in Montreal in 1917  while forty years later, the United. Appeal was, instituted in Toronto.  The following is a letter received in response to last week's  dramatic episode: -  "First of all, I am one of the  older generation, one of the  fuddie duddies as you call us.  1 don't think you can blame the  older generation altogether for  the communication gap. Some  of the young people are not able  to put their thoughts .across  very clearly either. I have yet  to see or hear a lucid explanation for the young'people dropping out of society.  "Yes, they say they are  against war, especially the Vietnam war, against the establishment, . don't like the way the  world is run. etc. But what are  they doing to try to rectify  things? Will dropping out of  society help either them or the  world?  Do they think thai roy adopting  weird dress, letting their hair  grow, going round in bare feet,  and forgetting to wash (what's  wrong with soap and water?)  and smoking pot, that they are  going to improve things?  We didn't agree with a lot of  things in our generation but we  did what we could to try and  improve things, and have made  a much better world for the  young people of today than it  was 50 or 60 years ago.  Not to put all young people into the dropout category (they  are in the minority) a lot of the  young people ARE trying to improve things. Some working in  our own country, some through  C.U.S.O. in foreign countries  doing what they can to help  people who are worse off than  themselves and not doing it for  the money either!  All growing generations' think  they have all the answers but  find out eventually that; they  havenM;. A contributor.  Laying blame is not our purpose in running this series. No  blame has been laid. The opinions expressed in last week's  column were singular.     ,  Most people find it extremely  difficult to put their ideas across  withYany clarity; Our language  canYnever seem to satisfy our  neecNfco communicate. As far as  we've seen, the young people  who drop out of the existent  social order only reject this; one  and seem desirous of establishing some new order against the  designs of1 a technology that informs only those who would conform to those designs.  Many young people, a few  years ago they were called disaffiliates, feel that non-participation in the highly competitive  business and war games of society will eventually mean that  there will be no negative friction  between people. Those same  people are finding it very difficult to exist in the world this  way; many are naive, but many  are sincerely looking for some  re-establishment of innocence.  The majority, of the people on  earth  are imprisoned in  their  MOVIE NEWS  Sydney Poiter and Rod Steiger  appear in the starred film In  the Heat of the Night at Gibsons Twilight theatre until Saturday of this week. It is an  unusual crime drama which has  merit in the performances by  Poiter and Steiger.  Next feature will be Where  Were You When the Lights Went  Out,  starting Wednesday, Aug.  2 and running to Saturday. This-  film is set against a backdrop  of the paralyzing power failure  that blacked out Manhatten in  1965. It is a comedy starring  Doris Day, Robert Morse, Terry  Thomas and Patrick O'Neal in  a scramble of uproarious situations;  Then for one full week starting August 26 the Barrow Gang  in Bonnie and Clyde depict a  group of bank robbers that terrify the whole of the Southwest  during the 1930s. Starring are  Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Warren Beatty, Faye Dun-  away and Michael J. Pollard.  It was filmed on location in  North Texas, the area in which  the Barrow Gang operated, during its wide- ranging'crime  spree,   y.-.-'y-- '; '��� ���'   '  own lack of material wealth.  What do they think about our  New World? Does anyone think  anymore that he can change  himself? The small number of  colorfully dressed, long-haired  individuals-of whom you speak  are, in some circles, a recognized religious movement, but  not an official one, and still a  fledgling in a world that is intolerant notoriously of new religious movements, which must  be' attacked and harrassed because of the subversive nature  of its search for a new order.  Nothing these young people  do should impose j>n your person; their appearance and actions can only mutely question  your sense of values, which, as  I can plainly see from your  letter, you militantly defend.  Space limits discussion in  print; we only barely cross the  gap; but there are definitely  two voices here. Any more?

It was intact and  its contents unharmed.  Another occupant of the  Abrams home was Brian Mcintosh; 17, driver for Shell Oil  who at the time was on the  toeach talking with other young  people. First indication he had  of a fire above him was a reflection on the water. He was  unable to save anything and is  reported to have lost his wallet  containing $60.  Mrs. Abrams reported flashes  of white light occurring which  could have come from breaking  power lines The  same flashes  of  white  light  were  noted iby  people while running to the fire.  Gibsons   area   volunteer  firemen responded rjjiickly despite  some battery difficulty with the  Giibsons truck. The new Gibsor|3  Heights trade reached vthe fire  first. The alarm given located  the fire  c_ose to George -Hill's  place.   There  are   two  George  Hill, places, the marine station  and his home, less than a quarter   mile   apart.   The  firemen,  acting on the assumption that it  was close to the marine station,  coupled to the nearby hydrant  immediately. Noting their error  they abandoned that hose  and  sped to the other location near  Marine Crescent. A few minutes  were lost but in a short space  of time the hoses were ^praying  water on adjacent buildings in  order to save them.  The old house in which the  Abrams had lived was then a  mass of seething flame, attracting boats from Keats island  and places closer by.  About the time the firemen  had their sprays ready, the  nearby Thorburn home was becoming singed and some spots  showed sign of flame. Sprays  soon got those out and luckily  the wind was negligible or the  firemen would have had a more  difficult job.

Gibsons Bakery  Gibsons & Sunnycrest Plaza  Phone 886-7441  Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-8900  An amendment to the Municipal Act of significant importance enacted by the IMS Session of the legislature was the  provision whereby the Lieutenant-Governor in Council may,  upon the recommendation of the  minister, by Letters Patent, incorporate the residents of any  area of land within a reserve  as defined in the Indian Act of  Canada as a village municipality.  The intjolvemehftj of Indian  citizens in local government is  desirable so that they may have  a voice in the affairs of the  community and so far as the  policy of the department of mu-  niaipail a_jfai_ls is concerned,  there is no reason under the  provisions of the Municipal Act  to bar any of our native Indians  from becoming a resident-elector of a municipality or a regional district, and just as in  the case of anybody else, he  would be entitled to run for office when his name appears on  -the current list of electors and  the list of the immediately preceding year and thus become a  participant in local government.  Also if the board of directors  of a regional district and the  Indians so desire, the board  could request an amendment of  the Letters Patent for the creation of further electoral areas  to* represent predominately  Indian areas. The question of  the number of such electoral  areas to be created and the  precise boundaries would be determined by the board in cooperation with the Indians and  submitted along with the request. It is suggested that the  board would wish to consider  the effect of. creation of additional electoral areas on the  overall balance of representation between the incorporated  municipalities and the electoral  areas.  It may well be that the board  would) want to follow a mixture  of the two approaches, encouraging the registration of Indians  on the voters' list, and in some  instances where the concentration of Indian population is  particularly high, the creation  of an individual electoral area.  If separate electoral areas  are cre_tted some decision will  have to be reached as between  6       oast CNews, Aug. 15, 1968.  the board and the Indians on  the cost-sharing arrangements  with respect to any function in  which the Indian electoral area  is participating. Also because  reserve lands are not taxable  under the Municipal Act some  arrangement should be made  whereby the costs of the district apportioned to the Indian  electoral area are recoverable.  Perhaps the department of Indian __ffairs could guarantee  the payment of such requisition  and the question of raising the  requisition would be left to them  under the provisions of the  Indian Act.  If the planning function has  been assigned to a regional  district,. Indian involvement is  particularly /desirable for this  purpose.

I made7ah ;application7for  benefit after I had to lieave my  employment because I lost my  honie arid had to niove 25 miles  away. I have rio^car and there  was no -transport for me. I am  still without work, butTthie; UIC  office refuses my Yunemploy-  ment _>a��. Why?; ,7  We have checked your case.  There was a liability to disqualification from benefit for up to  six weeks if you left your job  without just cause, but the insurance officer has ruled 7 that  did not apply. HoweveiY whereas you earned} $1.48 an hour in  your former job as a stitcher,,  since yoii moved and registered  for employment' you have claimed $1.98 an hour. Under the  Unemployment Insurance rules  you must make yourself available for suitable employment,  and it has been decided that,  having, regard to the rate you  are asking, you > are not doing  that. In the circumstances you  have toeen disqualified from  benefit for an indefinite period.  Q.' "I had been getting un-\  employment insurance benefit  for a month when I found a  job. Because of it, I forgot posting to the UIC the report for  the last week I didn't work.  Now they won't pay me for  that week, and I don't think  it's fair."  Sorry, but there's a regulation which lays it down benefits cannot ibe paid where the  necessary reports are posted  more than a week after return  to work. You can, if you wish,  request a formal insurance officer's decision.  Q. "The UIC office had my  insurance book in only a few  weeks ago when I put in a  fclaim.TNow they have asked for  it again. Is this a 'mistake?"  You have filed a new claim  sincie the one dn connection  with which you sent in your  book. To consider your entitlement to benefit, the UIC office  needs to check the most up-to-  date information in your book.  Failure to return your insurancebook after a request for  it has been made can result in  .disqualification from.,benefit. ,v  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886-2622  UP TO 3 p.m. TUESDAY  During the peak blaze period at the fire which destroyed the  Abrams home in Gibsons about 3 a.m. last Friday morning, a tall  tree blazed spasmodically (above) when flames hit the branches.

The chief charges  levied against him are. that he  pulls sprouting corn, injures  corn in the silk, destroys cultivated fruit and feeds on the  eggs and young-of poultry and  wild birds. These undesirable  habitsj, however, are offset by  his dedicated war on noxious  insects, mice and destructive  rodents.

Or mayibe it's a  blue baby, half a continent away  who will soon he given the gift  of a full life by a miraculously  complex and delicate open-  heart operation.  Or it could be your own healthy youngster, who will be protected from the dreaded rheumatic fever aftermath of a strep  infection by prompt ,'���' treatment  with penicillin.  All these young hearts and  thousands- more are the direct  and dramatic beneficiaries of a  mere two decades of medical  progress. Twenty years ago, the  outlook for a blue balby ��� a  baby born with certain defects  of the heart and blood vessels ���  was poor. Open-heart surgery  was still in the realm of science  fiction, and heart-lung machines  were only projects on an investigator's drawing board.  Before medUcine haii Ya sure  fire weapon ��� penic-llinY��� to  knock out streptococcal infections, strep throats cast a sinister shadow of rheumatic fever  whenever they struck. And because there were no defenses,  they might strike again and  again each time carrying the  threat of more damage to the  -victim's  heart.  Even  the  statistics  are dramatic. The death rate for rheumatic    fever    and    rheumatic  heart   disease   among   children  and young adults 5-24 years of  age has declined 83 percent over  the past 20 years. As many as  10,000  Canadians probably owe  their   lives   to   heart   surgery.  And for the thousands of youngsters with a history of rheumatic fever, protection is available  against   repeat   attacks',   while  the menace of initial onset has  been lifted for untold thousands  now growing to adulthood.  ��� And then there are the babies  who could never have been toorn  before   the   era   of   open-heart  surgery.   Surgical   repair   of   a  number   of  inborn or  acquired  heart defects has enabled many  women   to   conceive   and   bear  children.   Necessary   corrective  surgery has even been  carried  out during pregnancy, with survival of both mother and baby.  Each year we gain new knowledge and new weapons, giving  more    and    more    children    a  chance   to   live   normally*   As  scientists learn more about the  manner in which heart defects  arise in the developing embryo,  even the frontier of life before  a     n  MARINE   DRIVE  AVAILABLE IN GIBSONS  For Further Information  Ph. 886-9892  birth will be breached.  Medical research will one day  find the answer to the big  rheumatic fever question: how  do streptococcal infections trigger an attack of rheumatic  fever, why are only a small  percentage susceptible, and  what causes the heart damage  rheumatic, fever may leave in  its wake? This knowledge can  help us to consign rheumatic  fever to medical limbo, along  with such former scourges as  smallpox and polio.
