Also Chairman Frank West  was quite pleased' at Friday  night's meeting because Hon.  Dan Caimipbell, minister of municipal affairs, has advised him  that the board/ should maintain  its dual representation (regional  and hospital) but to keep the  affairs o_ each -separate.  Chairman^West also informed  board memlbers that he had  made it quite clear to government officials that the regional  board was not going to flbe-any  rubber stamp as regards hospital aiffairs and that the board  would vflatliy relfuse to be responsible for any operating  deficit accrued (by the hospital.  The regional Hospital board  was instructed by letter frdm  the B.C. Hospital Insurance and  Services it can borrow up to  $25,000 annually, an amount  which can be raised without  having to go to the public. This  money should be earmarked for  capital works. The hospital ad  ministration will approach the  Regional Hospital board with  an estimate of requirements and  the Regional Hospital board will  make the final decision.  Hospital financing is complicated with a federal-provincial  formula for grants and limitations affecting what is and what  is not to.be included.  Appointment of an advisory  committee to the Regional Hospital board will require selection of one, from1 the medical  staff, one memiber of the hospital board and one Regional District memiber. The Regional District member will be Director  Harvey Hulbbs who will ibe chair  man of the advisory committee.  ": One other item the Regional  District board had to consider  was to appoint a member of the  Regional District board ' to the  mahagement , board of St.  Mary's hospital. This will ibe  "done ona renewable one year  basis. In the meantime the  present situation will continue  with; Director Harvey .Hubb�� as  government representative on  the hospital board and Regional  District representative, to St.  Mary's hospital board.  2 winners in area  Station opened  Gibsons municipal rest station in the park at the School  road corner is now iri operation,  Aid Wally Peterson reported to  council Tuesday night; Signs  will; be placed to |aicqnaint the  public of the use of the building.

The department of highways  will be approached for a directional sign at the junction of  Marine Drive, School road and  Gower Point road to acquaint  visitors of the route they should  take. Council may also approach  the chamber or commerce for  signs entering the village at  both ends.  It: was the biggest thing that  ever struck the Gibsons waterfront. That was the opinion of  people  involved in  marine  occupations in Gibsons area. What  they meant was that the Super-  Valu   $25,000   fish   derby   gave  ; Gibsons a considerable amount  ; of free advertising and also put  ���quite a few dollars in the busi-  l ness life of the community. Six  r out of 27 winners came through  I Gibsons   checkpoint.  The    Gibsons    check    point,  Smitty's Marina, came up with  in the weight oif fish from fifth  to 26th. This number of winners  is believed to be the largest  from any checkpoint.  Here are the winners through  Gibsons checkpoint: '  Bob,Young,  28 lbs,  5th.  Phil Raines, 23 lbs, 17th.  T. Kurluk. 19 lbs 12 oz, 21st.  M: Skytte, 19 lbs 4 oz, 22nd.  Geo. Norton, 18 lbs 9 oz, 23rd.  Bill Aures, 18 lbs', 26th; '  Young wins a  16 foot house  S  Zoning plan for area  Draft copies of zoning and  subdivision bylaws are now being considered by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board.  Before settling down to study  these bylaws which are quite involved, members of the board  heard Mr. B. Jawanda of the  planning division of the department of Municipal Affairs outline his observations with the  aid of prepared maps.  At last Friday night's Regional board meeting he described  his planning intentions as covering three residential zoning,  one rural, one a holding zone,  two for -commercial zones and  two for industrial. These zones  ���varied slightly where there was  more than one type of zoning  involved.  For. instance the shoreline  residential zone did not allow  the use of mobile homes. Another called for no living aboard  boats unless it was of the sum-  er tourist variety and for recreational purposes only.  Generally speaking, while  there were some requirements  open for future discussion, the  general trend of the zoning varies little from present trends.  What the zoning bylaw would  do would give the Regional District board control over zoning.  As in the case of municipalities  where there is an existing building or commercial venture  which would fall in a specified  zoning area, it would be allowed to continue as long as there  is continuous operation of the  venture.   Such  ventures   could  also be sold and continued by  the new management but if  there is a lag of 30 days in  which the business does not operate it can be subject to rezoning.  The Sunnycrest area is slated  as commercial as extended to  Payne Road, both sides of the  highway. From Payne Road to  Henry road is marked on the  new map as industrial. The property from Henry road to the S  turn and the area behind the  Sunnycrest plaza area is marked as holding, presumably farm  land which Could be used in  various ways.  TAKES BAPTIST CHARGE  Rev. A. F. Willis, former manager of the Keats Island Baptist  camp, starting Sept. 1 will take  charge of the two Baptist  churches on the Sunshine Coast,  at Sechelt and Gibsons. The  Sunday service will be held in  the morning at Sechelt and in  the evening at Gibsons. Mr.  Willis and Mrs. Willis have put  in six years of managing the  Keats Island camp.  W.I. WHIST PLANS  Gibsons Women's Institute,  ready to start another social  season, plans whist drives for  the second and fourth Tuesdays  in each month'. With the whist  there will toe also three rounds  of Bingo plus afternoon tea at  35 cents per person. These events will be held from 2 to 4  p.m. on the planned Tuesday  dates.  Rev. J. H. and Mrs. TKelly of  YSt- :. Bartholomew's?: Anglican;  church, arid their family; will  be: leaving Gibsons to catch a  jet plane leaving Vancouver  direct to London, England on  Sept. 10. Rev.

His area will be centered on  Birmingham arid it will include  the co-ordination of work of  various secretaries. He will also  lecture on the aims of the "Leprosy organization and already  has enough bookings lined up to  keep him1 busy well into next  year.   ,      .  Among the functions honoring  the da parting Kellys was one at  the home of Mrs. F. Ross when  St. .Bart's Altar Guild presented  Mrs. Kelly with a gift bag and  a corsage of lemon yellow carnations. The ACW meeting in  the home of Mrs. R. F. Kennett  presented Mrs. Kelly, who was  the ACW secretary, with a  purse of money and a corsage  of red rose buds.  Born just alter World War I  in Newcastle-under-Lyme, he  attended St. George's and St.  Gile's Boy's School, then was  apprenticed to the Forestry  commission.

Many have come to know  Rev. Mr. Kelly and his keen  wit and hearty laugh will long  be remembered.  He  continued  his.    fire    fighting    association  while in Gibsons iby joining the  Gibsons and area Fire District  serving for a time on the administrative side.  At the last meeting of the  Kiwanis club, of which Rev. Mr.  Kelly was. an active member,  he was honored at a special  dinner and presented with a  farewell gift. The Royal Canadian Legion Gibsons branch, of  which he was padre, also honored him by presenting, through  the church, a farewell gift.  Following Sunday marning's  11.15 a.m. service at St. Barts  both Rev. Mr. Kelly and Mrs.'  Kelly were honored guests at  a congregational social in the  Parish hall.  A BUSY WEEKEND  Ferry Authority officials reported a busy weekend with  overloads returning to Horseshoe Bay starting at about 11  a.m. Monday morning. Traffic  continued heavy until the last  load which was cleaned up by  11 p.m.  six winners from fifth place to  26th with a ten pound variation  trailer, Raines a cartop boat,  Kurluk a freezer and the others  each won a TV.  There are two Sunshine Coast  wihners in the list and they are  listed as T. Kurluk and M.  Skytte.     *  Britt Varcoe who was busy  fishing got a surprise when he  landed a 4V6 foot wolf eel.  : Anotheii iriahY watched what  was described as a 30 pounder  escape when his line became  tangled ������_ with some other line  which also had a fish on. The  other line boated a dog fish,  which he did not want.  7   There    were    many    stories  " iriteresffrig " reading 'concerning  the luck of the fishermen. One  Powell River man brought in a  4.2 salmon and insisted on having it weighed. It was weighed  and he got a certificate. It miade  him happy. He said he had been  fishing in derbies for the last 29  years and this was the first fish  he had ever caught under derby  auspices. He was going to frame  the certificate for all to see  that he had caught one fish in  one derby at least.  Others run something like  this: A fisherman came in with  a 17 pounder and within an  hour was back with a 23 pounder; the ones that got away  usually exceeded the- weights of  those landed; crossed lines  were blamed for some breaks ���  anyhow that was the reason it  goa away.  The number of craft that  could be seen in the Sound  while heavy on Saturday, increased Sunday and showed  some decrease for Monday due  to better weather conditions  existing in the''open water area.  Marina staffs were kept busy  on all three days and the  clearing up on Tuesday morning  revealed a much quieter situation along the waterfront.  Quite a number of United  States boats used local services  and apparently like the fishing  in the area, some of them expecting that if the deiflby runs  next year that they would be  back. ���  ELEMENTARY RESEARCH  Judi Gathercole of Gibsons  left Tuesday morning to fly to  San Anselmo. California, where  she will participate in educational research at the elementary school level under Dr. Selma Wassermann who is prominent in the education field.

After following the recent Republican and Democratic Conventions in both the press and on television, certain observations  might logically be made.  The first of these observations would be that, by and large,  the real power in both parties still rests in middle age, middle)  class, well-to-do white America ��� in the Establishment. Little  more than token interest or token attention appeared to be paid  to the delegates of Mexican or Afro American' descent.  This is not nearly as outrageous as it may sound. Most of the  delegates are people who have given long and devoted service to  their respective parties; a service that usually antedates the time  when either of thb above ethnic groups had much opportunity too  participate in the political responsibilities of the country. Th_s<  is changing and will probably continue to change at an accelerated pace.  The second observation that could be made is that it possibly  might be beneficial for the United States to have a third party  oriented to the liberal left. Such a party would attract, polarize,  and be a creative political home to the disenchanted, to many  liberals and to a considerable segment of the intelligentsia.  It is doubtful that such a party would ever come to power,)  indeed, it is doubtful that it would be good to have such a party  come to power. Its real purpose and reason for being would be  to constantly feed new and provocative ideas into the mainstream  of American political thought. Some of these ideas would eventually be accepted and put into effect by the major parties to the  benefit of the whole? couritry. heh i 7   ao  Because the Democratic and Republican parties are today  so similar in basic policy, a truly alternative vote could only be  cast through a third party; moreover the threat of a wide use1  of that genuine alternative vote would be a useful discipline on  the old line parties.  An obvious observation which should be made is that it seemed odd and a little sad that our great and friendly neighbor found  it necessary to use such stringent security measures to> safely  carry out these-essential political processes. The recent tragedies  lie heavy in the hearts and on the minds of its citizens and fcnay  tend toYriiake their  authorities fear^ suspicious," Tiand,r  sometimes very harsh.  Finally, the sight of convention delegates using the state block  and open voting method comes as a bit of a surprise to a Canadian  accustomed to the secret ballot. To each his way.  A foreigner is always in danger of! making superficial or even  invalid political judgements ��� and yet, these are some of. the  thoughts brought into being by the television screen. JULES A.  MAINIL.  The way people live  There is a considerable discussion these days about the return of beards, long hair and eccentricJ ways of dressing. Th|s  really is nothing new in the history of civilization. It has happened before and will happen again.  The whys and wherefores for this cult are still a matter of  academic argument with points of view spreading across a wide  range of. thought. However to get to a rock bottom basis it should  be stated that there is no law which says one should dress thRs,f  or that way. There is social acceptance which is a loose sort of  unwritten law but beyond that nothing other than what our male  and female fashion designers and hairdressers have to offer1,  applies.  Let's go back to the days of King Teddy when beards were  the accepted mode. True they were the work of tonsorial artists  mostly and the unbearded individual felt uncomfortable only  when faced by a stern be-whiskered tyrant. The beard then did  have some effect. This situation does not exist now. Today's  beards lack personality.  Moving up to the early 1950's one can find that the expression of being a long-hair was supposed to mean abnormal. Now  long hair is a fad. How times and modes do change!  So you bearded and long-haired people please be a little more  definite about your beards. Develop a hairdo which will draw  commendation, not condemnation.  How you live is your own concern but eventually the crux  of existence will catch up with you and you will find there is  no way of escape. The world will continue on its inexplicible way  a/.d you will go along with it. A dismal outlook? Not if you have  any spunk in your makeup.  Recall the words of Robert Owen on severing his business relations with his partner, William Allen back in 1828. He said:  All the world is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a  little queer.  Time may march on but it has not changed the meaning of  Mr. Owen's remark. The Latin poet Ovid must have faced some  situations that are still with us. He wrote: How little you know  about the age you live in if you fancy that honey is sweeter tham  cash in hand.  ANIMATED  WALKING  STICK  The rambler in forests is  often surprised to discover that  a part of the casually-plucked  branch in his hand is alive. A  certain twig that was stiff and  motionless a moment ago sud-  deny walks off on long slender  legs, as awkwardly as if it had  never tried to walk before.  Strange and uncanny creatures  are these walking-stick insects,  with their long, pointed bodies  and with legs colored and  looking exactly like glossy twigs  and leaf petioles.  What's'  to family life?  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS, AGO  By Dr. ALFRED J. PRINCE  Dr. Prince is associate  professor of sociology at  Eastern Washington State  College, where he directs  Y the undergraduate; social  work program. He is an experienced family and mar-;,  riage counsellor and has  done extensive research into  family problems.  What is happening to the  family? Is it deteriorating? Has  it become too democratic?.  In the past 75 years the North  American family has changed  considerably. A list of some of  the more Y important family  changes would include: increasing divorce rate and changed  attitudes towards divorce; decline in the authority of husbands and fathers; increase in  the number of wives in the labor force; increase in premarital sex relations; increasing individualism and freedom of  family members, decline in the  size of .the-'family; transfer of  protective, productive, educational, religious and recreational  functions; and wider diffusion  of birth control.  Specialists who have studied  family life admit that the family  is changing profoundly, but they  do not agree on what it is becoming or where it ought to go  from here. One point of view  holds that many of the aforesaid changes are signs of decay  in the family and that the family is likely to collapse in the  not too distant future. Others  would argue that the family is  not really disintegrating but  simply changing its  form  and  of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied foi  Q. I bought a gravel digger  under chattel mortgage and the  man I bought it from won't  give it to me. I have a contract  to dig gravel and I.need the  digger now. How can I get it?  A. The question of who actually owns the digger will apparently have . to be decided  after a trial, which would not  come up in court until months  after you sue. However, the  law recognizes a need for haste  in such cases and provides a  special procedure called Replevin, whereby you may be  able to obtain possession of the  digger now.  You have to sue and you  may immediately apply for a  court order giving you possession of the digger. You must  file an affidavit setting out the  following: (1) Description of  the digger. (2) Its present value. (3) A statement that you  are the true owner. (4) A  statement that you are entitled  to possession of the digger. (5)  A statement that you have  been wrongfully or fraudulently  deprived of possession. (6) A  statement that unless you obtain such possession immediately, you will suffer financial  loss by reason of delay.  There is a catch though ���  to prevent persons from abusing Replevin proceedings, the  cjrston suing must; pay in|4_*  court a bond equal to double  the value of the digger. If you  meet the requirements, the  digger may be ordered delivered to you. Later, at the trial,  the judge will decide who owns  the goods.  If you are successful, you are  confirmed in possession and  full ownership, and are entitled  to your bond being paid out of  court to you, and the other man  must pay you certain legal  costs. If you are unsuccessful  at the trial, the digger will be  ordered returned, and you must  pay certain of the other side's  legal costs, and the bond is  available to pay any losses resulting from any damage or depreciation to the digger or  other proved losses which your  actions may have caused.  Start digging now ��� for both  your legal rights as well as the  gravel.  values to keep up with the permanent changes taking place in  our society.  Though there is a great deal  of disagreement among the experts as to where the family is  going next, most would agree  that we have travelled a long  way toward democratization of  the family; The question is now  being raised,'however, whether  we have not travelled too far in  this  direction.  The focus of attention in this  respect is the position of the  husband and father in the modern family.  Under the patriarchal system  power was unquestionably vested in the male family head.  The father figure was the symbol of authority.  The democratic idea is to distribute the power among all  members of the family. In  theory this is.an excellent idea.  But evidence is accumulating,  writes one authority, that in  practice it will not work, because differentiation of roles is  essential to good family functioning.  He continues: All cannot be  treated as equals, because in  fact they are not so. A man and-  a woman may be equal as persons in society. But as husband  and wife, acting out their masculine and feminine roles in  marriage, they are different and  complementary; the concept of  equality is meaningless1 here.  A parent and a child simply  cannot be equal, because the  child needs the protective authority if his parents are to give  him the security withhout which  he cannot grow healthily into an  adult.  By undermining the authority  of the man in the family we are  not damaging him but harming  other family members as well.  The wife cannot function in her  feminine role if her husband's  masculine role is taken away  from him. The family group  cannot function as a family if  its natural head is dethroned.  Thus,  some feel,  our experi-*  ment with equality and democratization in family life is not  proving   to   be   an   unqualified  success.  What is being suggested by  some experts; is not, of course,  a return to patriarchalism or to  the oppression and subjugation  of the young by the old. A husband can play the dominant role  toward his wife without being  domineering. A father can exercise authority in the home  without being authoritarian. It  is not power that modern man  needs to recover, but the exercise of his proper function iri  the home.  THAT   TUMBLIN'  TUMBLEWEED  Tumbleweed, <or Russian  Thistle, immortalized in songs  and stories of the west, is not  a native of this continent. It  inadvertantly arrived in North  America less than a century  ago. The pollen of tumbleweed  is one of the major causes of  hay fever in the prairie country of the Canadian west.  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons muriicipal council decided that it would be up to  householders to obtain and place  their house numbers on their  homes. Decision to number  homes was made earlier.  Because their water supply  had dried up residents on Pratt  road at the Gower Point road  end were seeking to have Gibsons council supply them from  its present system. Council informed them it could riot carry  out their suggestion.  Tax collections for 1963 were  good Jules Mainil, municipal  clerk reported to council. The  percentage figure was 92;4 percent just six-tenths below last  year. ������  Sechelt is expecting delivery  of a new fire truck for the village fire department sometime  in November.

Richard   McKibbin  A   PERSONAL   INSURANCE   SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C.  :iilH  WHEN   SHOULD   YOU  TRY SEUF-MEDICATION!  Medical authorities agree that self-medication  should be restricted to first aid for symptoms  of conditions that one can recognize easily. Examples are, a simple cold that does not persist;  occasional constipation, simple headaches, minor  aches and pains, infrequent indigestion, or minor  burns.  But, if symptoms persist, or re-occur frequently, it is dangerous to keep masking them with  home remedies. A physician should be ��� visited  to diagnose the true causes of any ailment and  to treat them for a cure. Treatment at the beginning of any problem is usually more effective and can prevent much future pain.  Your doctor can phonenv when you need a  medicine.

Some workers in lower pay  brackets go on paying into Unemployment Insurance year after year, and because they go  on working for the  same firm  and don't get laid off they never  get back a red cent.  Would it  not be only fair that some system of benefit for those who go  ��� say five years ��� without a  claim be started?  Alternatively  should there not be lower rates  of premium in such cases? Perhaps,   after  ten  years   without  claim, there should be benefits  to  be credited to  the  person's  Canada  Pension  credit?  A.   Unemployment Insurance is  not-a savings plan. It is more  like fire insurance: The insured  person is protected against the  fire  or   unemployment   as   the  case may be;  hut if he never  suffers a loss he does not get  either an indemnity or any repayment of premiums.  -':': TheYgrading of p_emiumsr in  accordance with the claim experience has been given extensive study, but it has not been  considered practical  under the  Unemployment   Insurance  plan  that  we have in Canada.  For  one thing, it would be difficult  to apply such a graded system  to an Unemployment Insurance  plan with a tripartite basis of  contributions by employers, employees   and   the   government.  Second, such a variation in the  rate of an individual's  contributions would require a radical  change  in   the  provisions now  existing    for    determining     a  claimant's   entitlement.   Under  the present plan each claimant's  rate of benefit is determined by  reference to the average of the  contributions he has paid.  fASHION MEWS  There's foig fashion in the  new little fall cottons. This fall's  children will be children, not  babyish, but rather, sophisticated,   knowing little  children.  Like the grown-ups there is  a strong nostalgia for other  times, other places. They borrow the Valentine laciness of  the Victorians, the mannishness  of the 30's, the cool mysticism  of the Near East and translate  them into shirtdresses, Nehru  coats and coatdresses, two-piece  look dresses, often with mock  men's ties, often with vests.  The silhouette is soft and  more shaped, high and close at  the top, dirndl or flared "A"  at the bottom. The waist is  high.  The waist is low. And if  it's in between it's usually  marked with a wide belt or  smocked midriff.  For the young man it's strick-  ly Nehru and meditation beads.  There are Nehru coats, Nehru  jackets, Nehru suits and Nehru  shirts. It promises to be a fall  of mini gurus.  The fabrics: Corduroy, . in  every wale, worked horizontally  or vertically, printed in plaids,  tartans, tattersalls, hounds-  tooths, wallpaper stripes, double  knits, bonded knits, twill knits  in solids and stripes and  checks, broadcloths and oxfords  in little florals and Ibig florals,  often treated for permanent  press; canvas and cotton fake  leather  (lethakin).

R.   BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute, Ottawa  No other kind of flower has  so completely changed, almost  beyond recognition, as the day-  lily. Most of us remember day-  lilies as those yellow May or  June-flowering plants of old  gardens or as the orange lilies  of deserted homesteads ��� extremely rugged plants which  seemed to thrive with neglect  but which lacked exciting and  diverse flower colors.  Not   many   of   us   know  that  Counselling  advice given  The Vocational Counselling  Service for British Columbia  provides help to people who  need advice and guidance in  planning their careers and in  seeking the jobs for which they  are best suited.  The* service is given by a professionally qualified staff. It is  intended primarily for young  people who are n<? longer in  school, ibut many older people  are helped as well. High school  students are provided with  counselling service if they are  referred by their schools.  People from anywhere in B.C.  are eligible for the service, but  they must come to Vancouver  to receive it.  Application may be made in  person to the office at 525 West  Pender Street, or an appointment may be made by letter  or telephone (681-5047).  The Vocational Counselling  Service for British Columbia is  a non-profit organization, registered under the Societies Act  of British Columbia. It is governed by a board of directors  which represents a wide variety  of government departments, and  also several voluntary community, organizations, including  educational, health, and welfare agencies.. ���>      <    v:     --- =  Financial support is received  from the United Community  Services and the provincial government, the remainder of the  operating costs coming from  fees.  The service, which has been  in operation since 1947, was  started by the Vancouver Rotary club, with the help of the  Vancouver YMCA. The number  of people receiving help has increased over the years and the  counselling service has been of .  a high professional quality.  SNORES THAT HAUNT  There are two major owl classifications in B.C. ��� the horned owl who is king of all the  smaller forested creatures, and  the short eared owl. The horned owl is the big bird that  hunts almost anything from  wild game to barnyard creatures and usually at night. The  short eared owl is a friend that  usually only hunts mice, in  marshy and brushy prairie  country. It is a fact that the  sleepy owl, when we get to  know him, constantly snores  while sleeping and his snoring  is quite often attributed to the  mysterious sounds that are  heard eminating from "Haunted Houses."  LEGION  BINGO  THURSDAY  September 5  8 p.m. Sharp  NO GAMES LESS THAN $10  DOOR PRIZE $5  these plants may now be obtained in many colors, that  there are over 3,000 varieties  in existence, and that more than  200 new ones are being introduced each year. Besides introducing newer colors, breeders of these fascinating plants  are concentrating on kinds  which open later in the evenings and which give a repeat  performance of color pageantry  later in the season.  The modern daylily with its  brighter and more varied coloring fits in very well with our  modern plantings. Some folks  have planted whole daylily gardens and thus are assured of  bloom from spring until fall,  for by selecting cultivars with  different seasons of Moom the  flowering period is extended to  include plants in flower every  growing month.  The cultivation of the daylily  varies with the type. Most of  them have the characteristic  trait of the older cultivars and  will withstand almost any abuse  and still survive. They all respond to good treatment by producing larger iand more abundant blooms. Most daylilies  have a heavy fleshy root system and prefer a loose friable  soil. To get this add peat moss,  straw or gravel to heavy non-  porous clay soils to loosen them  nd to andy soils add lots of  humus in the form of peat moss  or manure.  The time to plant is not as  important as with many other  kinds of perennials although  early spring and late summer  are two periods when the least  disturbance is apt to occur. You  cannot go too far wrong in  planting at any time but you  must guard against setting them  too deeply or they will always  remain as stunted plants lacking in vigor. The crown where  root and stem join should be  one inch below the soil. If the  plants are set out during the  midsummer when in full growth  the tops should, be cut back to  within four inches of their base.  In an ordinary garden soil  daylilies require little in the  way of extra food, but if the  soil is sandy or poor, feeding  with liquid fertilizer will be  helpful. One good feeding in  spring and another at just about  the time the first buds appear  should suffice.  Although these plants withstand severe drought conditions  there are periods when a heavy  watering will be beneficial; this  is when the flower scapes first  begin to develop. A heavy  watering at this time will ensure the materialization of every  flowering bud.  Propagation is usually effected by division of the clumps in  spring. Dig out the clumps and  divide by inserting two forks  back-to-back in the middle of  the clump. This operation may  be repeated to get four quarters.  After that, division may be done  by working the plants loose  with the fingers.  Division may also be carried  out in August or September but  in colder parts of Canada spring  division and planting insures a  well established plant to go into  the winter.  Care after planting should be  mostly confined to pulling out  weeds and cultivating. A few  sprays DDT 50% WB may be  necessary 10 days apart to  eliminate thrips that will feed  on the blooms and mar their  color, especially those flowers  with darker colors. These pests  are not as serious on daylilies  as they are on gladioluses and  the injury may go unnoticed by  the average observer. They do  cause a blemish which would  not please the fancier and the  flowers might harbor pests  which could spread to other  types of plants.

Pension Act. The report. ���, a  1,300 page study of veterans'  legislation ��� contained 149 recommendations for changes in  legislation and procedure.  At the meeting in Legion  House, Robert Kohaly of Estevan, Sask., Dominion president  of the Royal Canadian Legion,  drew particular attention to the  recommendation that the basic  rate of pension should continue  to be based on earnings in the  unskilled labor market. The Le-,  gion, as well as other veterans'  organizations, he said, had consistently advocated'this basis as  a determining factor in establishing a reasonable amount for  100 percent pension.  The formula, adopted in 1919,  embodies the principle that pension is compensation for a disability which diminishes a pen-  soner's earning power in the  unskilled labor market but  leaves him free to earn monies  i in. other vocational pursuits  without affecting his right to  pension. The veterans' organizations were opposed to any  other formula.  Particular significance was  attached to the recommendation  that there should be an appeal  beyond the Canadian Pension  commission. The veterans'  groups unanimously favored the  institution of an appeal board  as recommended in the majority  report of the Woods' committee.  They rejected the minority report of the committee which  suggested the appointment Of an  ombudsman to deal with dissatisfied pension claimants.   ���  The meeting took special note  of the Woods' Report recommendation that disability pensions not be subject to income  tax and voiced strong objection  to the recommendation by the  Carter Commission on Taxation  to the effect that the exemption  be removed.  The veterans' representatives  differed with the Woods' Committee on two minor matters of  interpretations of the regulations, one concerning the special allowances paid to totally  disabled veterans, and the other  concerning the date of the end  of both World War I and H as  it affects pension claims.  All representatives expressed  the hope that the new parliament would act on this important document as soon as the  house convenes.  '*r��-K<-x��,_v_|0'  ^^^^^^i^ii^iiiPP^iP?  Strokes are usually caused by  '. one of the three varieties of  disease processes. The Canadian Medical Assoc, reports.  The most common of these is  thrombosis, which is a plugging,  of the arteries of the brain. Beyond the point of the plugging  of the artery, the brain tissue  dies.  Symptoms of thrombosis include short episodes of weakness, dizziness, difficulty in seeing, numbness and tingling in  the arms or hands. Relief from  these symptoms sometimes can  be brought about by the use of  blood-thinning agent's known as  anticoagulants. These medications must be used with extreme  caution by experienced physicians.  Cerebral hemorrhage, or bleeding into or around the brain,  is the second most common  cause of strokes. There are  two varieties of cerebral hemorrhage, one related to high  blood pressure, which is ofiten  fatal and the other a rupture of  a berry-like swelling where the  arteries divide, which is less  often fatal. Cerebral hemorrhage often can be .prevented by  control of high blood pressure.  The third most common cause  of strokes is the release of an  embolus or small blood clot into the circulation, which in turn  plugs a brain artery, causing  paralysis. These embolic  strokes usually follow changes  in the heart valves brought a-  bout by rheumatic heart disease. BloodH-hinning agents,  frequently used by doctors  caring for patients with rheumatic heart disease, sometimes  reduce the frequency of embolic  strokes.  The CM.A: advises that many  strokes   can   be   prevented,   or  reduced   in   severity,   if   treatment is commenced soon after v  the first symptoms appear.  It is not advisable to use artificial sweeteners indiscriminately, says the federal health department publication,. The Consumer's Handbook.

Generation Gap  "I read your column this morning for the first time and would  like you to know that just last  evening I had a very long and  worthwhile discussion with one  of my daughters and her young  friends trying mostly for my  own selfish reasons to find out  where they were at and what  they really thought was happening. None of us really  reached anything but we felt  better. It seemed to me that  there was a great deal of fear in  our relationships and that something could be done aibout that  and there would be more understanding." M.B.  There are a great "number of  brilliant specialists today who  would proffer the concept of  fear* as one of the mainstays of  our ecology. The job of overcoming this fear has been likewise transformed into industry  by well-meaning hut misguided  individuals who invariably thinik  first of their bellies and then  about their relationship to the  existant social order.  The thought Keeps occurring  that the pause in meaningful  discourse referred to. by the  title of this series is actually  caused by the slow takeover of  our bodies by the things we  have created to make life  easier.. It is our intention to  show that ease is not as easy  as it looks.  Why  did Ernest  Hemingway  put that loaded shotgun in his  mouth?   What  need did Henry  Luce have to take LSD? If this  is such an affluent society, why  must we do battle with one another    to    keep     the    pantry  stocked?  Why is condemnation  the   first   response   from   most  people to the appearance of a  free individual? We know you're  not satisfied with your way   f  life, so why put down another's?  Mysteries,      mysteries.      How  far do you think this language  we are creating will take us if  the labels we have attached be-  -gin  to  fall   off?   ���How  many  people actually agree with Herman Kahn when he says death,  however dealt, is information?  Facility   in   our   daily   lives  should,    by   now,    have   been  proven to be of litte use. The  more we take it easy, the more  our ease is cluttered with these  man-made   and   malfunctioning  products   which   have   become  central to our lives. There does  seem to be more to life than  produce and prizes. The order  of   things   does   include   much  that will not fit in to your, or  our, philosophy.

IT'S  WORTH INVESTIGATING.  THIS AD PUBLISHED BY���  THE BETTER  CITIZENS  SOCIETY  OF GIBSONS  HEALTH TIPS  PREVENT CROOKED TEETH  One common reason for a  new permanent tooth growing  in crooked is the tooth that  got away too soon, says the  federal health department publication, Crooked Teeth���Crooked Faces, They Can Be Prevented.  If a baby tooth decays and  is lost" or has to be pulled out  (before the permanent tooth is  ready to take its place, the  teeth on each side of the space  where it was will tip over toward each other, closing the  space. When the permanent  tooth does try to come through,  the space that it should have  is already occupied, and it has  to twist and shift out of line in  order to find room for itself.  This kind of crooked tooth is  easy to prevent. First, the number of cavities can be greatly  reduced by  teaching the  very  young child to brush his teeth  immediately   after   eating,   and  by  seeing that  he  doesn't  eat  candy and sweet food too often.  Secondly,    have    the    child's  baby teeth cared for by a dentist from the age  of three ��� .  then tiny cavities can be filled  before  they  destroy  the  tooth  to  the  point  where  it  has to  come out.  Thirdly, if a tooth is lost too  soon,     the ,  dentist can put a  space   maintainer  between  the  remaining    teeth    to hold the  space for the permanent tooth, his eyes on the road.  The same one cent miracle:  Cup or can, it doesn't matter  as long as there is milk inside.  This small girl has been waiting  since 3:30 a.m. for a Unitarian  Service Committee sponsored  milk distribution in Madras,  India, which begins at half past  five.  Last year,, the USC distributed  5,344,000 cups of milk in 15 different areas in India and Korea.  Despite rising costs the USC can  still provide a brimming cup of  milk for one cent. Milk is often  the only protein food these  children eat.  Fifty percent of India's diseases continue to be caused by  malnutrition. .

If you sent in your  application in July, you should  receive your first pension  cheque in January, 1969.  The age at which pension becomes payable is being gradually reduced from 70 to 65. In  January, 1968, pension becomes  payable at age 67; in January  1969, it will become payable at  age 66, and in January 1970  at age 65.  It is important to note that  an Old Age Securiy Pension  will not be paid to you automatically. You must apply for  it. Only after an application has  been received and approved by  the Regional Director of Old  Age Security, can you receive  the monthly pension. Age and  residence are the only requirements for eligilbility. Application, forms are available at all  post offices in Canada.  Don't startle  Tips for safe motoring are  usually addressed to the driver,  but here are some hints from  the B.C. Automobile Association on how to be a good passenger:  i Never startle the driver.  Don't #hout "Look!" to call the  driver's attention to the scenery.  Don't irritate the driver by  continuously pointing out traffic signs or other driving conditions obvious to him. Hold  your advice for a real emergency which you're reasonably  sure has escaped the driver's  attention.  Learn to read maps. Be the  navigator on long trips. Be helpful  in  letting the  driver keep  continue to depend on their  daily supply of Canadian milk.

JACK DAVIS  MINISTER OF FISHERIES  No one likes restriction��. No  one, least of all our West coast  fishermen. They would like to  be able to fish where they want  and when they want. But in this  modern age of rising expectations and declining fish stocks  the line has to toe drawn somewhere.  Ottawa has the main responsibility. In an industry in which  there has been no restricted  entry it also must take a greater  interest in the management of  the resource. It must be interested, not only in conservation  but productivity. It must try to  raise the income of the average  fisherman while, at the same  time, keeping down the price of  fish to the consumer.  The story of our commercial  fishery makes dismal reading.  The total salmon catch today  is much the same as it was 20  or 30 years ago. Not only are  the same number of fishermen  employed in taking this catch  but the investment in fishing  Vessels and equipment has more  than doubled. Productivity, in  other words, has been slipping.  And the resource itself is being  depleted by an industry which  is being told that it can only  fish for weeks or months each  year. ;���.  The economics of much of our  West coast fishery is upside  down. We have too many boats  and too many fishermen already. And yet bigger and more  powerful vessels are being built  and new means are being devised for detecting fish far out  at sea.  What is the answer? What is  the answer to over-capitalization  but shorter and shorter fishing  seasons and the declining incomes in the fishery as compared to other industries?  The answer, it seems to me,  is license limitation. Fewer  boats and fewer fishermen can  bring in the same catch by  working more hours each year.  But only Ottawa can decide how  these limitations on licensing  can be imposed.  The Canadian taxpayer has a  real stake in this matter. He  already puts up $1 in tax support for;every $3 worth of fish  the industry catches. In the interests" of making this public  investment .pay off we, too,  must insist that it operate much  more efficiently than it has done  in the past.  [CROSSWORD ���->������<����������   By A. C.

While he benefits  from most of our conservation  measures he, too, is having to  go farther and farther afield in  order to catch fish. Better management and more efficient  management in the commercial  fishery can mean that there are  more fish around. And so license  limitation, either applied on the  boats or to the fishermen themselves, appears to be inevitable.  The issue that remains to be  settled is how license limitation  should actually be put into  effect. Should it be a restriction  on the number of boats or a restriction on the number of fishermen? This, too, will have to  be decided shortly if the West  coast commercial fishing industry is to turn the corner and  make a real contribution to the  rest of the Canadian economy.  Meat prices  may go down  No price reduction in meats  is expected in September, according to the forecast of the  economics branch, Canada Department of Agriculture. Only  potatoes in the fruit and vegetable section, may fetch lower  prices.  BEEF: With supplies steadv  and demand strong, prices will  continue firm.  PORK: Supplies will be below year ago levels and prices  moderately higher.  EGGS: Egg markets firm to  slightly stronger due to seasonally lower production.  TURKEY: Heavy turkev  prices will be stronger as supplies are silghtly below requirements. Broiler turkey prices  firm to*stronger.  CHICKEN: Broiler chicken  prices will be steady and supplies plentiful.  POTATOES: Favorable yield  expectations point to plentiful  supplies and reduced prices in  all areas.  APPLES: Later season varieties of higher quality will attract heavier demand anl  strengthen prices.  ONIONS AND CARROTS: Domestic supplies will return to  the market at prices above last  year.  TOMATOES: Reduced yields  will hold prices firm.  GOOD   SOCKEYE   RUN  Record runs of sockeye salmon to Rivers and Smith Inlets in British Columbia coupled  with good catches of pinks,  chum and coho salmon have resulted in value of fish landings  for the July period reaching a  record of 24.5 million dollars,  nearly seven million dollars  more than the previous July  high of 17.6 million dollars  reached in 1966, according to  a report released by the regional director of the Canada Department of Fisheries. Total  salmon landings were worth 22.9  million dollars to fishermen;  halibut 1.2 millions dollars, and  other fish including shellfish re-  turing 400 thousand dollars. If classes fo start  The 1968-1969 School District  No. 46 Adult Education program  will begin in the last week o_  Septemlber. Some 40 to 50 courses will be offered at the beginning of the program with others  to be offered1 later.  Examples of new courses that  are of special interest are new  mathematics for parents, band  music for parents, and a special  course for people wanting to  learn more about B.C.  The new math course is designed for parents of elementary  children who have been puzzling  over their children's math and  want to understand it. The  course will be taught by Mr.  Mike Seymour, school district  elementary teacher.  For those persons who love  and want to know more aibout  British Columbia there will be  a course called Beautiful British  Columbia. It will be especially  useful to those in the tourist industry. Mr. Gary Foxall. geography instructor at Elphinstone  will teach this course.  Adults who wish to learn to  play a band instrument will be  given an opportunity to receive  instruction on various instruments in an adult band music  class. This course starting in  September will cater to those  adults with little or no experience in music. Mr. Frank Pos-  tlethwaite, the new music man  for the school district will teach  this course.  Announcements will toe appearing in the next week or two  giving dates', times, places, and  instructors. Brochures will be  available.

Undoubtedly most readers  were delighted when the Czarst  regime was overthrown in Russia. We welcomed the thought  of the opportunity for promoting remedial changes in the  horrid conditions so long suffered by the Russian people.  Communism was freely spoken  of and the average person who  dreaded the vicious exploitation  saw much merit in the propaganda put forward by communists. There were numberless interpretations of the communist ideal, but in the main  satisfaction was felt that much  needed changes would be  brought about.  May I divert to state that for  the past 20 years or so I have  'been removed from active participation in the Trades Union  movement, but for many years  prior to settling here in Gibsons I played my, part. Over  the years one found the tendency on the part of the average worker to let someone else  do his thinking. We idb not find  too many workers. nowadays  with the courage to speak out  as did some of our noble forerunners who made it possible  for the improved conditions enjoyed today.  For quite a time in South  Vancouver I noted the actions  of individuals who were members of the C.C.F. later N.D.P.  In their estimation nothing done  by Moscow could be wrong.  Said individuals were by no  means helpful to the Socialist  movement. I merely make that  statement to draw attention to  what I felt was the finest brief  summary of the present Czeck  situation. One commentator last  Saturday in three words had it  well analyzed. He said it was  a "Monumental socialist blunder." >    "  I take the opportunity of appealing to the average member  of the Trades Union and N.D.P.  movement to think out present  day enigmas more for himself  rather than completely depending upon the press and public  speakers statements.  Should you decide to take a  little session of thinking things  out, ask yourself the point blank  question what have I done in  my lifetime to promote a better world with healthier conditions. Should your answer be  very little, think of the old  cliche "It's never too late to  mend." ��� Dave Rees.  Coast News  Phone 886-_*>'22  By R. F. KENNETT' -  Aug. '68      Aug. Normal  Aug.
