The federal department  can only assume such cost  when it affects the Canadian  people at large: district officials  were told : ��� >;;  To open parl^  After many years of hav,i  work by many people of Gibsons and the area, a dream  will- come true. /Gibsons -Athletic Association and7mariy''������ of  its supporters are : putting the  final touch to an area to be  used by the Little League and  7 some of the softball /teams,  Terry Connor, president announces. 7 . /; Y'-Y'Y ���������  .The park is much needed because school play fields are  being used to full capacity by  children and adults and /Dougal  Park is used by the women's /  teams and by children for  other activities. Y^  The opening of the playing  field at Brothers Memorial  Park will be at 1:30 p.m;,Ylune  9, followed by a Little League  baseball game. The association  vice-president, Peter Mouzakis  hopes. that the many 4 people  who have worked to build this  park will be on hand to see  their efforts crowned.     Y  Nine years of striving to  obtain area garbage collection  and disposal by private committees and later .the regional  cTstrict board are stymied because of a government departmental stand against the supply  of a tax roll and the maintenance of the same when changes  of land ownership occur. The  roll is needed for tax collection  purposes.  This was revealed at Friday  . .��--." ��� meeting of the Regional  District board in its Davis Bay  headquarters. .Discussion on  garbage collection and disposal  occupied considerable of the  board's time: Regional -board  clerk Charles Gooding who attended a municipal conference  in Victoria, during a recent  weekend reported .on the su!b-  ^jpct'in the following manner:.-.  .While in "Victoria last 'week  ���'���I followed .lip'our requestfo the  department of municipal affairs  for the provision of property  owner's lists for the garbage  collection areas. I spoke with  the assistant deputy minister,  Mr. Baird and members of his  staff and it is apparent that we  will be unable to get the information we require from them  this year.  The provincial government  computer will require re-programming to provide the . information needed by regional  districts and a decision on this  has, as far as I can gather, not  been made.  ;. The only alternative that I  can suggest to the board is that  we encourage local contractors  to collect garbage, provide the  facilities for disposal and bring  in an interim garbage disposal  bylaw covering the provisions  for the use of our dumps and  containing . stiff penalties for  dumping or permitting dumping  to take place elsewhere.  . Chairman France West  termed the situation as absolutely stupid and just-.', hopeless  Members of the board argued  that   the   board was   emascu-  After many weeks of planning two members of the local Aero  Club lefit by plane, a two place "Piper Vagabond on a trip Ithey  hope will take them through most of the Canadian provinces and  parts of the U.S.A.

Their destination is Yarmouth,  Nova Scotia, where they will visit Sid's daughter, Mrs. Lloyd  (Susan) Sweeney, before returning /to British Columbia.  lated (because certain things  were not being made available.  Without a tax roll the board is  powerless to set up a collecting  system. The garbage tax would  apply only to those actively  occupying property in the district. This would include  summer residents.  Board members noted that  Victoria has the most modern  equipment at its disposal and it  would be a matter of programming its computer to obtain the  information for the tax roll.  However it was reported that  the finance minister would not  sanction any such move.  ���" Other matters concerning  garbage involved the Pender  Harbor dump over which Director J. -H. Tyner of Pender  Harbor area reported he had.  ~fao -letters-protesting the. loca-  tion'^Fthe dump, maintaining  it affected the water supply in  that area. It was expected the  Big day se\  for June 23  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce is still working on  the proposed B.C. Offshore  Racing association power boat  race and display for June 23 in  which some 25 to 35 craft will  cross from Sunset Beach to  Giibsons.  This was announced' at Monday night's meeting of the  executive at Cedars Inn. Various  angles have to be settled and  arrangements made 'for the";  docking of the boats on arrival.  There wil1 be a stay of a couple  of hours in the harbor and during then there will be a display  by power boats for the general  public.   ��� -Y  Norman Rudolph urged a  combined effort of the. three  chambers on the Sunshine  f ....���<��� see what can be done  about attracting; secondary industries to the area. Letters  will go to various governmental  departments and/an effort will  be made to get provincial cabinet ministers to visit, the area  and meet the populace.  Kay Butler reported briefly  on the C. of C. convention she  attended recently in Victoria  but will have a more detailed  summation for the next general  meeting. She was also delegated  to attend a regional chamber  meeting later this month probably at Pemberton along with  another delegate. .  The board decided to grant  $10 as is usual each year to the  July 1 celebration committee.  Each member was urged to get  out and see what can be done  about increasing the membership of the chamber.  LIBERAL MEETING i  Everybody Interested is invited to attendi the Sunshine  Coast Liberal association riding  general meeting on Wednesday  night starting at 8 p.m. in  Selma Park's Community hall.  provincial Health inspector  would give an opinion in this  matter.  Director Tyner was of the  opinion the present Pender Harbor dump would not last more  than a year or so. There was a  deep ravine about half-mile  distant which he thought would  be better and, last a number of  years. Tre matter was turned  over to the garbage' and the  iPlanning coimmittee for conw  sideration.  Getting back to the main  bone, of contention, the lack of  a-voters list for taxation purposes, the" board decided to ap.  proach government officials to  see what could be done about  rectifying the situation.  Ted Sundquist of Pender Harbor has informed the board  through Director Tyner he is  ready to collect garbage in that  area with a one ton truck twice  a week and that he would set  the rates. In view of the fact  Pender Harbor: area turned  down the -garbage plebiscite  this is the "way such collections  would' have to be done.

Even on a national scale, a solution, to our overall problems,  now caught up in international involvement, is nothing f>��r any  political party to be glib about. Any utterance . accompanied by  a wave of the hand dismissing it in a few carefully chosen words  signifies a desire to avoid such an issue.  When you shear away all party verbiage and look at the  candidates, the parties, the national and the international situation, no whoop-de^do should have any effect on where you mark  your ballot. Without striving to influence any voter it can be said  now without prejudice, that a basic middle-of-the-road policy  is going to be the one that will have best effect in the months!  to come. v  Be careful, dear lady!  It is not often Gibsons can reach out and become involved  in something in Edinburgh, Scotland. But believe it or not that  something happened.  The editorial of two weeks ago commenting on what an Edinburgh lady had written on the copy of the Edinburgh Scotsman,  a daily newspaper, was the cause. She commented on the foolish  economics prevalent in Great Britain. A copy of the editorial  was sent her airmail.  In her haste to show the editorial to a neighbor, she fell and  broke a leg. We write this in a consoling mood in the hope) that  when she reads it she will kindly refrain from breaking any other  of her limbs.  An intelligent approacH  With a public committee busily exploring education as it affects local children and letters to the editor also exploring school  affairs it would appear that the public is becoming vocal about  such matters.  The school board publicity chairman has developed articles  explaining how school classes operate, their usefulness and what  they hope to achieve.:  This is all to the good and should help develop a deeper and  more intelligent interest in local school affairs.  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Sunshine  Coast  Hospital  Improvement  District   reported  .hat Commonwealth Trust Company, Vancouver had taken the  full issue of $375,000 debentures  for the new St. Mary's hospital  at 5^_ percent interest.

The  building cost $30,000 and an  earlier $10,000 was granted for  the purchase of property. -  Gunraar Wigard was granted  a building permit for construction of store building opposite  the Centopath in Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  A new resort, Ole's'' Cove  opened for public use and the  owner Ole Elmholdt announced  he intended to have 11 cabins  ready eventually.  Twenty-four members attended the vestry meeting of St.  Aidan's Anglican church, Roberts Creek, and elected Len  Matthews  as   people's  warden.  Halfmoon Bay PTA is planning a Centennial celebration  at the school June 29. Improved   equipment   for   the   school  should be installed by then it  is expected.

Tenders have been called for  the building of a school at  Madeira Park and the school  board is considering another  building for Gibsons.  Coast-Chilcotin. Liberal candi-,  date Paul St. Pierre says orie  of the things wrong with Canada is that governments have  a tendency to put their brands  on the people rather than the  people putting their brand Y5h  the government. '       ',  St. Pierre, author of two  ' books ��� one of them the bestseller Breaking Smith's Quarter  Horse, which is about the Chil-  cotin ��� a pair of stage plays,  two dozen national television  plays and several hundred  newspaper columns, believes it  is time government was put in  it's proper perspective.  . * * *  A theme of his campaign so  far, and indeed of everything  he has ever written on the subject, is that governments exist  for :{he benefit of people and  ���not people for the convenience  s of government.  "I am always fearful of politicians and parties which want  to impose some kind of a system," he told a recent campaign rally. "The trouble with  systems   is   that   pepple   have  to be made to fit them.  "I   think  government   has   to  be   something   like   a   favorite  old  coat ��� it  has  to fit comfortably   around   its   owner   no  matter what  shape  he  is."  ' ��� A   riding is   not  created  by  putting   a   boundary  around   a  chunk    of    real    estate."    St.  Pierre  says. "It is created by  a boundary around a collection  of   people,   and   every   one   of  them is a little bit different.  "I- don't know how one man  can represent each     of    them  adequately. In fact I'm reasonably sure no man can. He can  only/do his best." .  St.   Pierre,   44,   was   born-  in  Chicago    with    dual Canadian-  US.   citizenship.   He   gave   up  the' latter when  he joined   the  RCAF   as   an   aircrew   trainee  in 1941. He spent his childhood  and got his education in Dartmouth,   Nova   Scotia.  After     a     medical discharge  from     the     air    force he was  licensed   as   a   merchant   navy  wireless  operator  and came  to  British    Columbia    seeking     a  ship.     Before;    he   found   one  World   War. II   was   over   and  Point of law  he went into newspaper work,  first with the New Westminster  British -Columbian, later with  the now-defunct Vancouver  News Herald, and from 1947 to  the present with the Vancouver  Sun.  In recent years, as a Sun  Columnist, he has travelled extensively, most often in British  Columbia, and mostly at the  wheel of his own car. This year  he drove from Yellowknife to  Vancouver ��� some 1500 miles���  in less than two days in winter.  His home, on the southern  fringe of the riding, is a rambling house perched on a shoulder of Vancouver's North Shore  mountains up a steep incline  which with pronounced understatement he calls Cardiac  Climb. There he lives with his  wife, Carol, and three children.  At Big Creek, in the Chil-  cotin, he has a small log cabin  to which he retreats" to write  in the summer and fall and it  was here that he did much of  the work on his award winning  series of television plays which  were shown under the title  ��� Cariboo Country.  He is a man who wears a  business suit with difficulty and  not often by choice and is'more  at home with a gun, a dog, a  small boat or a horse than he  is with the accoutrements of  the city.  JJC # *  Among those who know him  he is as highly regarded for  listening as he is for talking,  and he talks usually in short  sentences rich with anecdote  and a fine, dry humor. Some  of his best stories of life in  the Coast-Chilcotin riding are  told in his books and; plays.  One of his favorites is in-  Breaking Smith's Q u ar ter  Horse. It. is a story of how  Smith, caught out in the Chil-  cotin's bitter winter, starving  and near death, decides that  his priority for survival exceeds that of his scrawny dog,  Rappaport, which he kills,  cooks   and  consumes.  Then Smith, a good-hearted  man, looks at the remains and  says, "My how that Rappaport  would have liked to have gnawed them bones:"  "(By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  We have received a number  of miscellaneous questions concerning the repayment of debts:  Q, Is an I.O.U. good?  A. Yes ��� the person in whose  favor the document is made  may sue the person signing it  and the document is evidence  of indebtedness. It is not, however, the best way to record  a debt which should be done  Toy way  of a  promissory note.  Qj. I have a demand promissory note ��� when can I collect on this?  A. Anytime. You must first  make demand for payment by  the maker (the person who  signed the note) and if payment is not *' made you may  then  sue.  Q, What is a bill of exchange? Can . you force the  man who signed it to pay?  A. A bill of exchange is an -  unconditional order in writing,  addressed by one person to another, signed by the person  giving it, requiring the person  to whom it is addressed to pay,  on demand or at a fixed or  determinable future time, a  sum certain in money to or  to the order of a specified person, or to bearer. The. person  to whom the bill is addressed  would normally be holding some  money for the person who signs  the document. If the bill is  presented for payment and it  is dishonored, the person signing may be sued provided  prompt notice of the dishonor  has been given him.  . Q. Can I sue for a rubber  cheque?  A. Yes. A cheque is a bill of  exchange drawn. on a bank. See  the preceding answer. '  Q. Can I force the backer of  a promissory note to pay it?  A. Yes ��� an endorser may.  be sued unless he negotiates  without recourse.  Q. Can I sue for cash loaned.  I have  no     promissory /  note,  cancelled    cheque,    I.O.U.    or  anything. How can X prove it?  A. You can sue. If the person sued denies the loan it will  be your word against his and  the decision will depend on  who the judge believes. Usually  there are witnesses or some  other evidence of the loan. If  the judge can't make up his  mind who to believe, or if the  case is teetering ��� you lose.  Next time, obtain a promissory  note ��� or better still neither  a borrower nor a lender be.  HOUSING PROJECT  Approval of a $1,228,770 federal  loan for a senior citizens' housr  ing project in Vancouver, British  Columbia was announced by the  Hon. Paul T. Hellyer, Minister  responsible to parliament for  Central Mortgage and Housing  corporation. Provided ,under the  National Housing act, the loan  will be madeYto the Chalmers  Foundation, a nonprofit corporation sponsored by the  Chalmers United Church congregation. The loan is for a  term of 50 years with interest  at 6% percent.  Of Coast-Chilcolin St. Pierre  "says "most of us are interested in primary production, forestry, mining, ranching and  fishing. We have a general, interest in freer, world trade and  we're not overwhelmed by any  impatience to build more tariff  walls' around eastern Canadian  industries.  "Except for the Indians, who  came here thousands of years  ago, most of the Coast-Chilcptin  people live in the region by  choice. Scarcely anybody is  roped and tied to the place  where he was born and the  people here aren't here by accident. This gives the .riding  a character that isn't common  lo some of the older settled  regions of eastern Canada and  even less of old Europe. Who-  ever's elected had better realize  this."

CANON HEBER GREENE  Canon Helber Greene, brother  of canon Alan Greene of Halfmoon Bay area died last Friday  in Shaughnessy hospital at the  age of 80. After serving in various Anglican churches in the  province he teamed with his  brother on the Columbia Coast  Mission boat whfoh serviced  the religious needs of coastal  people. He retired in i064. A  funeral service was held Wednesday at St. Marys church,  Vancouver with Rev. G. D.  Kelly officiating.  retiring logger  On Friday, May 24, a dinner  and reception was held in the  Masonic Hall, Roberts Creek;  with approximately 75 in attendance, in honor of Daniel Jay  who is retiring from M & M Log  Sorting Co. Ltd. He has worked  at Andys Bay since 1953 when it  was operated by Coastal Towing Co. and continued on when  M & M Log Sorting Co. took  over the management in 1959;  Mrs. Wilma Morrison, a partner  of the company, was hostess for  the evening and was assisted  with the baked salmon dinner  by the wives of the employees  and members of the Masonic  Lodge. Mr. Sparkle New, manager of Coastal Towing Co., and  an acquaintance of Mi\ Jay for  over 7 20 years proposed, the  toast.  Presentations were made, to  Mr. Jay foy Ed Gill on behalf of  his fellow workmen; by Bill  Mackintosh on behalf of the executive staff of M &.M Log  Sorting Co. and. the Morrison  family; and by Dave Wilson,  worshipful master of Mt. Elphinstone Lodge No. 130 on be-,  half of its members. Mrs.  Kathy Dunn presented Mrs. Jay  with an artificial floral arrangement on behalf of everyone  present.  Dancing followed the dinner  with music provided by volunteer musicians, Mrs. Caryl  Cameron, Harry Mylroie, Jack  Macleod and Ernie Hume.  ighting priced  Cost of installing highway  lighting in the Selma Park-Wilson Creek area arose when  names of 22 persons in favor  of the project came before the  Regional District board in correspondence.  A letter from F." H. Norminton, area Hydro manager, stated the cost of an estimated 25  vapor luminaires throughout  the area would be $1,070 per  year and others could be added  if required. Damage from vandalism 'would be a cost to Ithe  Regional  District.  To obtain these lights the  next move would be to outline  a specified area, prepare a bylaw and then seek a public vote  on  the  same.

D. R. McLean AH impartial musicians and  music \ lovers were in ^complete  agreement that never was anything written in music so incoherent, shrill ,,muddled and  utterly shocking to ;the ear ���  this criticism is hot, as you  might think directed by a contemporary pundit ,at: .sonrie  avant-garde experiment in electronic music but was written in  1806, the reaction of critic Herr  von Kotzebue to a performance  of the overture; to Beethoven's  now well loved opera Fidelio.  tSimsiiar comiments djowini  through the years from 480  A. D. to the present day a-  mused those attending the  electronic music and art workshop presented by the Sunshine  Coast Arts council and produced by Lloyd Burritt of  U.B.C. and Doug Eliuk of the  National Film Board.  The audience was introduced  to modern music and art  through an under standing of  the progress man has made in  musical discovery from 400 B.C  and the Greek four note scale  through the infinite variety of  forms, harmonies, rhythms and  orchestrations to the beginning  of new discoveries using the  four basic electronic patterns  of sound.  FolUowing this interesting*  flash back through the history  of music, illustrated with taped  commentary, recorded musical  excerpts and slides showing the  comparable changes in painting, so closely allied to music,  the group divided into two sections. One group under Lloyd's  leadership exploring the theory  of electronic music and finding  that it wasn't so complex or  involved as they had expected  and going on to experiment  with sounds which could be  made with things around them,  jangling keys, effervesing pop,  clinking glasses etc. Everyone  contributed a series of sounds,  individually and combined in  groups and eventually a tape  was completed of this music of  everyday  things.  Meanwhile the other group  with Doug Eliuk had watched a  film by NFB's Norman McLaren and then, with felt pens  and ink, made at series of experimental film strips. When'  seen through a viewer these  produced the simplest form of  animated film, changing shapes  and colors, and some beautiful  effects were created often reminiscent    of    oil    on    water.  Everyone from 5 to 50 became  involved arid without doubt the  highlight of the evening was  the final film showing. Doug  7had painstakingly: spliced the  film loops and great was the  delight of young and old when  their combined work of art was  shown oh the screen, synchronised Tvtith^ track  madeby the other group. This  instant film1 making was a tremendous success and revealed  all; manner of ideas for further  'development   and   experiment.  Lloyd and Doug had given  considerable thought and much  time in planning the workshop  and the excitement and enthusiasm; of everyone involved in  the creation of the spontaneous  light show was their well-  earned reward, and a climax  to ah evening of fun and information which sent everyone  home with food for thought and  a deeper awareness of the  make-up of their environment.  The workshop will foe repeated in Madeira Park Community Hall at 7:30, June 8.  Choir leaders  presented gift  Departing choir leader Gilbert  Sykes and organist Mrs. Irene  Sykes were honored at a function following Sunday morning's  Gibsons United church service  and presented with a silver  tray.  Rev. W. M. Cameron spoke  briefly commenting on the good  work the Sykes had done in  their capacities with the choir  and then introduced an old  friend of the Sykes, Mrs. Edward Grant who expressed  sorrow at seeing them leave the  area.  Mrs. Lucille Mueller, representing the choir thanked the  Sykes for the pleasure that had  been the experience of choir  members during their association with the choir. Following  the presentation members of the  congregation, over tea and  cookies, chatted with Mr. and  Mrs. Sykes, who have been with  the church for a little more  than two years. They intend to  settle in Burnaby.  The sassafras tree produced  the first commercial forest product in North America.

Building rules  to be observed  Building problems continue to  arise in the Sunshine Coast Regional District and a shack  thrown up at a bridge in Pender  Harbor area; also the putting  up of a used prefab building in  Halfmoon Bay area were discussed at last Friday's Regional  board meeting.  Directors wondered whether  there might be a health problem  involved in the shack near the  bridge and would seek a report  from the health officer on it.  The prefab difficulty was in  the use of 2 x 3 instead of 2 x 4  studs, contrary to the building  code. The majority of directors  did not favor relenting on code  requirements but decided the  building inspector should investigate to see what could be  done to help in compliance with  the code.  Directors duHng discussion  thought it would be better for  the public if producers of prefabs obtained National Research board approval before  marketing their product.  President Jim Cramer, on behalf of Gibsons and District  Kinsmen, recently presented  the children's ward of St.  Mary's Hospital with a TV set.  Receiving the set. on behalf of  the children who will be using  it, were Lee Berdahl (left) and  Michael Talbut, being held by  Mrs. Mary Gordon, director of  nursing. At the back are Mr.  A.

Roberts Creek  knitters meet  A pleasant afternoon was  spent Wednesday at the hoine  of Mrs. A. Rutledge when members of the Roberts Creek Red  Cross branch gathered for the  final meeting of the season.  The business meeting was short  and informal and reports  showed that the organization  was solvent and <tha!t since  September 1967, 968 knitted and  sewed pieces had been sent to  headquarters. These included  children's dresses and panties,  babies' nightgowns, kilmontas,  crib afghans and so on.  Mrs .Ruth Mitchell, .he president, presented a gift to Mr.  and Mrs. B. L. Cope, who so  kindly had seen to the heating  of the work rooms each week.  Mrs. Mitchell was also honored as it was the last meeting  she would attend as a resident  member, she having sold her  home here to Mr. and Mrs. J.  Boldack, of Williams Lake,  who will take possession on  June 7.  Mrs. Mitchell joined the Red1  Cross group in 19_i when she  first came to Roberts Creek,  and has served as president,  secretary and campaign manager.

After a few meetings  the Little League Baseball association which has been in  operation in Gibsons and area  for 17 years decided to join  the association.  Executives elected were:  President, Terry Connor; vice-  president, Peter Mouzakis;  treasurer, Larry Labonte. All  team managers and icoachjes  are on the board of directors.  The councillors of ..Gibsons";  granted permission to s use the  old municipal hall. During the  winter months the clubhouse  was ^pen every night from 7  .o 9 p.m. under the supervision  of association .members. Boys  have been entertained with  games donated by merchants  and members of the association.  Three Little League teams in  Gibsons under the sponsorship  of the Merchants, Firemen and  Kinsmen Club are now part of  the seven team league covering the area from Port Mellon  to Sechelt and involving 150  fooys from 9 - 12 years of age.  The association had hoped  for two Babe Ruth teams, but  only one was organized under  the sponsorship of the Lions  Club of Sechelt. Members will  be w��rkm�� djuring, winter  months to promote a four team  league for next year. This will  permit boys of 13-16 age to  continue playing ball.  Meetings will be held in July  regarding soccer organization.  It is hoped to receive co-operation from members in this endeavor. Approximately 225  members arte paying $3 7 per  year to support this organization. Merchants have, been askedfor $1 per month.  Tihe, executive and board of  directors' thank the supporters  of the Gibsons Athletic Association for their financial, moral  and physical support.  Obtain grant  Terry Connor and Larry Labonte, representing Gibsons  Athletic club appeared before  Gibsons council at its last  meeting and appealed for a  grant to help out in this year's  summer swimming lessons for  youngsters.  . Council decided to grant the  club $175 which along with '$100  from the Kinsmen club, fees of  $2 per pupil and $5 per family  and other donations will make  up the total. The classes are  becoming so large that it is  expected they will have to be  split up this year.  Mayor Fred Feenejy donv.  mended the association for the  work it is doing adding that  what it is accomplishing was  sorely needed for this area.

School Utilization committee, set up to study possible  methods of obtaining greater  use of public school facilities,  according to the Hon. L. R.  Peterson, Minister of Education, who formed the committee earlier this  year.  The Sechelt Teachers association has considered sending  some information and a committee was formed to explore  possibilities.  Mr. Peterson said that already the committee has received more than 30 submissions from interested groups  and individuals, and expects to  receive formal submissions  from several major organizations directly concerned with  education and educational finance.  The Utilization committee  membership consists of nominees of the British Columbia  Teachers Federation, the British Columbia School Trustees  Association and Hhe British Columbia Parent-Teacher Federation. Its purpose is to study  and report to the minister on  alternative overall organizational patterns in the schools, including quarter and semester  systems, and alternative organization of the school day to  get greater utilization of facilities. It will also consider the  availability ��� of facilities for general community use.  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Mrs. S. CampbeU, of White  Rock, is the guest of Mrs. Ruth  Mitchell this week. Mrs. Campbell   formerly   lived   at   Silver  Sands.  Visiting at the B.L. Cope  home were Mr. Cope's niece,  Mrs. C. Bolstads and Mr. Bol-  stads, of Portland. Both were  much taken with .���.,the,.spring;  beauty of the Sunshine  Coast.  Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Montgomery, (Gladys Crow) of Powell  River stopped' in during the  week to visit with folks on  Crowe Road. They probably do  not know that the name of the  road honoring the Crow family,  pioneers of the district, is misspelled, as the sign at the high-  was was, as usual, missing, torn  down by vandals. One wonders  if the late Joseph Crow would  enjoy an E being added to his  name.  Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Stacey,  with their daughters, Jean and  Vera, and niece, Leone Jackson, have , come from Burnaby  to. spend a week or so at the  Jackson summer home.  Guests at the W.

OF FISHERIES  (Period ending May 26)  The heavy silt load spilling  from the freshet-swollen Fraser  and Squamish Rivers is adding  a drab tan color to Vancouver-  Howe Sound waters. We maintained a few years back that  the first showing of the colored  water in the spring marked the  disappearance of the early-season cohoes hereabouts, but such  is not the case, say some of  the local opinions. At least the  slow-up isn't' felt right away,  they would add.  However, cohoes are sitill  available, according to the  fishery officer's report, and  some fairly good catches have  been taken along the south  shore of Bowen Island and from  most of the regular trolling  areas in lower Howe Sound.  Chinooks to 35 lbs. were boated from time to time during  the week with 35 pounder com  ing jfroim Salmon Rock near  Gibsons. The bite was off during mid-week which may have  been the result of killer whales  which appeared briefly in the  area.  Mentioned as (being fairly  steady producers of heavy fish,  apart from Salmon Rock, were  cape Roger Curtis, Tunstall  Bay and the Gibsons vicinity.  Smaller chinooks to 8 lbs. have  been reported in waters around  Anvil Island.  The Horseshoe Bay area gave  up a few cohoes and small  chinooks as did waters around  the corner from Whytecliff to  Point Atkinson. East of Point  Atkinson in the Cannery area  the fishing was- slow most of  the week.  Once again the most productive fishing in the northern  Sunshine Coast area was  around Scotch Fir Point, Saltery  Bay   and Telescope   Pass.  Steady rain on May 20 dampened the spirits of some anglers  and the results recorded at  Westview show only fair returns for those who ventured  a try. Twelve of 19 boats checked ashore had*no fish aboard  while 8 chinooks, 2 jacks and  3 coho were reeled in by the*  others.  The warm weather over the  weekend of May 25 and 26  brought out more sun-bathers  than fishermen. Fishing was  rated as poor and little effort  was expended in that direction.  The triangle from Texada Island to Powell River to Lund  showed poor returns.  The mornings of the May 19  and 20 saw some good sized  chinooks showing up at the  south end of Agamemnon Channel and at the drop-off at Telescope Pass in Jervis Inlet. Lat-  Coast News, Jurie 6, 1968.       7  er in the week large fish to  38 lbs; were taken at7Sa_anaw  Bay, Lee!

A check on Sunday  evening at Sakinaw 'Bay, Lee  Bay and Pender Harbour recorded 7 nil catches, arid 18  boats with 10 chinooks, and s- 5  coho aboard. The fishery officer indicates that these results Twere poor compared with  the catch at Lee Bay in the  afternoon when several 18-25  pounders were caught. ,  Coho are in good supply from  Sechelt to Jervis Inlet although  dogfish have been a nuisance  in some areas, particularly at  Egmont and Telescope Pass.

Maintaining the municipal  airport at Wilson Creek would  become increasingly a regional  project rather than a village  one, Mayor Fred Feeney of  Gibsons at Friday night's Regional District board meeting  asked) board members' to consider taking over its control  sometime in the future.  The airport is now under the  jurisdiction of both Gibsons and  Sechelt municipal councils, as  called for under federal government regulations, each bearing  half of annual costs, involved  amounting to $2,400.  SCHOOL DISTRICT No. 46 (SECHELT)  Attention all Parents  KINDERGARTEN AND  GRADE ONE REGISTRATION  MONDAY, JUNE 10th to FRIDAY, JUNE 14  TIME: 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  IT IS IMPORTANT that all children who will be going to KINDERGARTEN and GRADE  ONE in September 1968, be registered AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and not in a Last-  minute rush.  The School Board cannot guarantee to have suitable accommodation, teachers  and equipment on hand for all children in Sepember unless it Is able to know  well in advance what the demand will be.  If your child will reach the age of five on or before December 31, 1968, he  may be registered for KINDERGARTEN m Gibsons Elementary School, Sechelt Elementary School or Madeira Park Elementary School. There is no fee but transportation fo the school is the parent's responsibility.  All children who wjill reach the age of six on or before December 31/1968  should be registered for GRADE ONE at the nearest elementary school.  No school registration may be made without proof of age by means of either a  birth certificate or a baptismal certificate.  Pupils presently in kindergarten should be registered for Grade One. In those  cases where a registered form has been sent home with the kindergarten pupil,  and has already been returned fo fhe school, if is not necessary for the child  fo be registered again. A waning by; Chairman  Frank West of the Regional  District board that when the  regional board eventually takes  over the Hospital Improvement  District chore as part of its  operation that it keep the Hospital Ibudget separate from the  Regional bfoafld budgalt, was  sounded at last Friday night's  meeting of the regional hoard  in its Davis Bay office.  Mr. West almost shuddered at  the idea it should be included in  the regional budget owing to  the fact that most hospital districts are operating on a deficit  basis. He preferred the hospital  district be separate when it  came to financing. He regarded  the hospital operation as a completely separate activity from  usual regional district functions  therefore it would be advisable  to continue the hospital district  board in order that a separate  board would be responsible to  the regional __u.tr_ct board instead of its affairs becoming  intermingled' with regional district operations.  The regional district board  operates under the eye of the  department o|f municipal affairs. The hospital would be  operating under BCH_�� and  responsible to the provincial  health minister. Intermingling  municipal expenditure wiith!  hospital expenditure would lead  to complications, Mr. West  said.   While   there   is   nothing  separate  definite yet on administration  limitations of the hospital "within the regional setup it is  expected the hospital budget  would be OKd by the regional  district board then sent to the  BOHIS for approval.  Following the meeting Chairman West pointed out that his  remarks were confined to the  government level of the hospital  district and would in no way  affect the St. Mary's Hospital  society board which would continue to operate as in the past.  Hospital matters were discussed at a conference of  municipal and regional1 clerks  in Victoria which Clerk Charles  Gooding attended. He reported  as follows:  The conference May 22, 23  and 24 was as usual most informative. The program was  almost entirely concerned with  administration and financial  matters and for the first time  there was a division during the  discussion for those officers  responsible for regional districts.  I attended sessions on municipal communications, problems  of larger municipalities concerning law and administration,  a panel discussion with municipal affairs staff on amendments to the act, a .panel  discussion on data processing  and talks on hospital financing  and planning.

There will be opportunities for  regional districts to avail themselves of federal funds through  functions which carry federal  assistance.  The Interpretation act has  how been amended to permit  action to be deferred from a  non-working day to the next  working day.

Sale of debentures ^ on behalf  of municipalities was explained  and copies of the necessary bylaws provided but the system  seems to ibe unnecessarily complicated and I am certain it  will have to be simplified to  speed up the procedure in marketing debentures. It was emphasized that when financing  through a regional district,  municipalities are responsible  for any naqtessary intertim  financing. ^yy'-y-  Books in library  GIBSONS  JUVENILE DEPT.

A multi-color 5c commemorative stamp to be issued by,the  Canada Post Office on August  7  pays  tribute  to     the     Hon.  Qeorge Brown, one of Canada's  Fathers  of   Confederation   who  was born 150 years  ago, Postmaster     General     Jean-Pierre  Cote has   announced.   In  addition    to    playing a prominent  role in the emergence of Canada as a nation, George .Brown,  a native of Scotland,    left   ~a  legacy in a continuing Toronto  daily    newspaper    which    he  founded as The Globe in 18441  The institution of slavery was  a target of Brown's unyielding  opposition;     significantly,     the  stamp   in   his   honor   is   issued  during the   International   Year  for   Human   Rights.   A   public  acknowledgement of his journalistic   endeavors   came   in 1967,  Canada's Centennial year, when  he was named to the Canadian  News Hall of Fame.  He was an untiring worker  in the cause of responsible government; he advocated union  with Canada of the vast fertile  plains west from Upper Canada to the Rockies, and it is  recognized that the Northwest  Territories were acquired by  Canada largely as a result of  his persistent efforts.  First elected to Parliament  in 1851, he played prominent  roles in the Quebec and Char-  lottetown conferences; it was  in this era that he provided a  remarkable example of country before self when he joined  forces with his political foe,  John A. Macdonald, to facilitate negotiation of the terms of  Confederation. Elevation to a  seat in the senate came in 1873.  George Brown's life ended on  a tragic note in death from a  wound inflicted by a disgruntled  worker who paid for his act  on the gallows. Seated in his  private office on the afternoon  of March 25, 1880, Brown had  been confronted by a man who  demanded a signature to a  paper   acknowledging   years   of  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons - 886-28121  satisfactory service in the newspaper office. .

Funeral Service Association  members will provide  funerals without cost for  all B.C. subscribers  to Pineview Memorial Plan  Although no members of the B.C.F.S.A. were involved in the defunct Pineview  Memorial Plan or other similar schemes, and even though the Association disapproves of promoting prearranged funerals in this way* in order to protect the  good name of the funeral industry as a whole, B.C.F.S.A. members have agreed  to furnish an adequate funeral for anyone living in British Columbia who is known  to have been covered by the Pineview Memorial Plan. The Vancouver Crematorium  will furnish any cremations involved, without charge.  While we are endeavouring to make this commitment as nearly unconditional as  possible, there are some minor qualifications to our offer- for instance, we regret  we cannot be of assistance in cases where the funeral took place before our members assumed this project. Pineview Memorial subscribers in B.C. are invited to  contact the B.C.F.S.A. at 806 Granville Ave., Richmond for details and confirmation of our undertaking.  *We recommend the Canada Purple Shield Plan for those  wishing to buy funeral insurance.

At its  conclusion the school board requested guidance from teachers  and a mandate from parents to  enable it to improve the quality of education in our schools.  With this impetus the subject  brief was complied with the ultimate objective of providing  this mandate.  'Many persons who signed the  brief as sulbimitted and others  who have indicated interest  have been patiently waiting to  hear of the outcome and possi  ble subsequent actions j particularly inasmuch as a pulblic  meeting had been requested.  The brief itself originated  from a very concerned group  of parents who found that pur  Sunshine ��� Coast school system is  not providing our children with  a sound basic education upon  which they can build their future, whatever vocation they  choose. It was concluded to be  our responsibility to draw this  shortcoming to the attention of  our school board and to insist  that the system be improved.  Subsequently Mr. Gordon  Johnston, district superintendent  In a recent issue of the Coast  News there was an article on  education outlining the home  economics subject taught at our  high school. There was a similar article not many issues ago.  What bothers me as a father  of several children is the emphasis that our school gives to  such a course. To put it another  was this is an elective course  that is toeing given the teachers,  facilities and the emphasis that  should be given to more basic  subjects, some of which are not  receiving such favoralble treatment.  It would seem to me that there  is an air of defeatism in all this.  It seems that the view being  taken is that most of our children are going to drop 0l~t he-  fore grade 12. We therefore concentrate in gearing our schools  in favor of the drop out. Our  children seem to be learning to  be well dressed according to the  latest fad, to be alble to cook  the latest cake mix, to be expert about textiles, nutrition,  sewing and baiby-sitting.  We may be turning out good  baby-sitters but I do not believe that these children will be  better wives and mothers than  their parents. There are distressing signs that the opposite  will be true.   7  Only after a school has provided the best possible basic  education should such emphasis  be put on electives. A lot more  money has gone into the home  economics lafbs as compared to  the facilities and equipment for  science courses.  One should expect that a high  sichool would provide guidance  at grade eight and nine level so  that a student would be helped  to choose a career. Yet the student is expected to make a nearly final choice in these grades.  A school should provide encouraging talks on careers from  doctors, lawyers, nurses, chemists, engineers, computer technicians, etc. We are demanding  a choice from our young people without giving them knowledge of the careers that are available to them if they persevere  in their school work.  English as taught in our  school is a good (or bad) example. Typing teachers are forced  to teach their students how to  write a letter. They find their  students deficient in grammar.  The French teachers have to  teach grammar to their students. Naturally they have to  teach French grammar but they  should not have to teach English grammar. Try asking grade  eight students to conjugate a  verb.  I sometimes feel that our children do not learn our language  from anywhere else but radio  and television. This is, of course  an exaggeration but I cannot toe  convinced that the teaching of  our language has improved in  the last 20 yearsi  Standards in education are  supposed to be considerably  highher but I do not believe that  this is true in the teaching of  our language.  It is very easy to attack a  system or an institution and I  regret that much of what I have  said is more destructive than  constructive but it is true.  I do not blame the majority of  teachers nor are the school trus  tees fully at fault.  I am inclined to agree with  Mr. Klyne Headley  ���Chris D. Johnson.  Coast News, June 6, 19k8.       9  of -schools, arranged a meeting  'between the original group, several board members and himself .At that time a panel consisting of7 Lome Wolvertori, Joe  Macey, Chris Johnson, Bipin  Oza, Clem Bulger and Dave  Ganshorn presented the various  facts of the torief in more detail. We offered any services  which the board may feel that  could use.  Unfortunately the trustees had  not studied the brief in sufficient detail prior to the meeting  and thus did not question the  panel. The meeting closed with  an agreement to have a small  committee meet with the trustees to study the details. The  group of parents agreed to establish the priority of topics for  discussion and advise the board.  The original group of parents  has continued to meet and will  continue to press for improvements in the school system.  The first of the committee  meetings was held on May 16  under the auspices of the education committee, board of school  trustees. Mrs. Labonte chaired  the meeting with Mrs. Kitson,  Mr. Malcolm and Mr. Douglas  representing the board and Ed  Sherman, Jack Willis, Clem Bulger and Lome Wolverton representing the Parents committee. The meeting discussed secondary education and counselling as introduced by the brief.  We found the meeting interesting and - fruitful. Subsequent  meetings will discuss the kindergarten, primary education  anjj parent-teacher relations.  The committee thanks the  school trustees for taking the  time to discqss these subjects  and looks forward to other fruitful discussions. We have very  definite ideas of what is required and no doubt will, at times,  try the patience of the trustees.  We will submit for publication  some of these ideas.

Kinsmen seek  smaller park  Gibsons Kinsmen club feeling  that Dougall Park, usually  known as Kinsmen Park is becoming too much . of a project  for them is seeking a smaller  park  on which to work.  This was- explained to Gibsons council ait its last,meeting by Jim Cramer, club representative, when he reported on Kinsmen operations on  the park during the last year.  He outlined what the cluto  had done, fixing fencing, a new  top on the well, installed a  merry-go-round for young children, provided a tennis net,  new roof on the rest rooms,  spreading fill and getting the  new paddling pool ready.  Council suggested that the  name of the park be changed  to Dougall Park, in memory of  the donor of the area for recreation purposes. This Mr.  Cramer thought was the proper  thing to do. Council has arranged for a 14x10 inch plaque  to cost $118 to be placed at a  suitable spot in the park. The  Kinsmen intend to erect three  flag poles and finish other jobs.
