This includes the  new addition in Gibsons and the  prefabs, moved from Gibsons  for use in Sechelt.  The (board approved the use  'of Elphinstone gym for roller  skating on Saturdays from 1 to  4 p.im. with possible other evening, times likely ..if: the gym  would be available. Principal  W. S. Potter informed the board  that owing to pressure of school  activities at Elphinstone school  nothing could be guaranteed at  present. Skating will be allowed  in Pender Harbour school Fridays'from 7 to 10 p.m.  Sechelt Motor Transport advised that the new: school bus  rate on a three year contract,  would be four cents higher per  mile than last year. This works  out at 44 cents per mile. The  new rate was accepted by the  board. ':,'  The B.C. Ferry Authority rate  of $21 per day for transiportation  of children, from and to Gambier Island was. also accepted.  The South Coast Region salary coordinator reported that  a partial joint zonal agreement  was ' contrary to the. Public  Schools Act. The board decided  to seek a new contract with the  -teachers - association devoid of  joint agreements.  The department of highways  reported that a flashing traffic  -beacon iwould->be "installed catfthe  -highway"and' Nfi..ITRoadi\ with  an amber light for highway traffic and a red light for crossing  from North Road. It was also  suggested that a 30 mile zone  be established  on' North -Road  approaching the school. The  present speed limit is 50 mph.,  A student arid vehicular count  will be taken at Sechelt to see  if a crosswalk is necessary to  get to the water side of the high  way. Trustee Leo Johnson was  of the opinion it was not, as  children had no need to cross.  The problem of maintenance  crew and equipment use outside  school areas was debated and  an arrangement will be made  with Giibsons Athletic Association which desires to spread  lime and fertilizer on Brothers  Park football field.  The request. of the Sunshine  Coast Golf club for the use of  a tractor, spreader, mower,  aereator and other equipment  on the golf course led to a _isr  cussion on cost and it was decided that a compatalble arrangement could' be agreed to.  It, was also decided that staff  members "only be in charge of  such machinery.   vY ' -'  When ittf came. to confirming  the appointment of G. L.

What was regarded as adverse publicity for the area  was discussed at Monday  night's meeting of Gibsons and  District Chaimfber of Commerce  in the Bank of Montreal staff  room with President Frank  Hay in the chair. ,  Discussion involved a letter  which appeared two weeks ago  in the coast News and some  advertising in which the Gibsons Better Citizens Society was  mentioned.  Concensus of the discussion  was that the district could well  do Without such publicity. Mem  bers felt that the chamber was  not in the position of seeking  action to curtail such activity  but hoped that people involved  would avoid any further publi  city.  Charles Mandelkau reported  on the result of a meeting to  discuss the Eric Hensch proposal for an area community centre.

Harry Turner of Elphinstone  school ' comimerce class proposed to the chamber that it  help finance a project involving  the exchange of colored slides  with other schools in the province. Chamber members decided they could not afford to  go into this type of effort.  Members decided the Timber  Trail Riders gave Gibsons good  publicity by entering the PNE  parade and winning second  prize for their horse entry. They  granted $25 at the time of the  parade. Members added another  $25 in view of the TV publicity  that followed.  Chamber memlbers were  pleased to note that Gibsons  council had fulfilled their request for a street light at the  Prowse road launching ramp.  Next meeting of the chamber  will be held Sept. 23, a dinner  meeting, the place yet to be decided. Tickets will be available  shortly.  Mill fo close  Howe Sound division of Canadian Forest Products Ltd. announces that its kraft pulp mill  at Port Mellon will be shut  down for a two-week period beginning September 30. This is  the second shut-down for the  mill this year. Port Mellon was  down for one week last February.  Both shut-downs have been  caused by weak markets and  an over supply situation facing  kraft market pulp producers.

The long tea table, set with a  hand-crocheted cloth and centered with a bowl of pink and  yellow dwarf dahlias was presided over by Mrs. L.C. Bengough, wife of the vicar's warden and Mrs. A.M. Harper, president of the ACW.  Mr J.W.H. Sear, a long time-  church warden, presented Mr  Kelly with a purse from the  members of the congregation.  Miss Ena Harrold presented  Mrs. Kelly with a monetary  gift from the ACW. She also  gave Barbara a personal gift  and Mrs R. Cumming did the  same to young Miss Anne. Miss  Harrold made and presented  corsages to Mrs Kelly and the  girls.  Mrs A.M. Harper brought  from the parishioners on Gambier Island regrets at the  thought of losing their vicar,  who, like the rest of his congregation, they had learned to  love and respect.  She presented him with a  purse in token of their appreciation of his ministry and kind  care for them.  ,Be_ore this goes to press the  Kellys will have reached their  new home in Birmingham  where Rev. Kelly will immediately begin working on his new  assignment.  On Thursday last, Mrs A.M.  Harper entertained the Kellys  and friends with a farewell  luncheon at her home Shasta  Lodge, New Brighton, Gambier  Island.  The young folk were able to  enjoy the beach and swimming,  while the grown-ups enjoyed  rambling   through   the   woods..  Rev. Kelly called on 12 families, bidding one and all goodbye.  Sewers big problem  Members of the Regional District board and municipal councils of Gibsons and Sechelt will  attend the Union of British Columbia Municipalities annual  convention in Vancouver, starting Wednesday of next week and  lasting three days.  One of the major items to  come before this convention  will be the problem of financing sewage systems. To date  the provincial government had  stated it would finance some  part of the cost of treatment  plants.  Municipalities generally have  regarded this news as being  helpful but they are worried  about the financing of sewer  systems in view of general  municipal bond market conditions, which are not favoring  small communities.  The convention will have be  fore it resolutions asking that  higher level governments do  something about making money  available so that sewer systems  can be built. Then they would  be prepared to tackle the treatment plant problem.  The financial bind which  starts with the higher level governments added to the lack of  a bond market has presented  municipalities with a problem  they cannot overcome without  government assistance.

Better late than never  "This study (provincial-cmunicipal finances) will enable us to  work out what the common denominators of provincial and municipal government really are, so that revenues can Ibe applied on  the basis of justice and need." So says Hon. Dan Campbell, provincial minister of municipal afifairs commenting on the formation  of a joint study committee to tackle the problem involving municipal financing.  With rapid growth in population and government responsibilities this long overdue move to examine complaints of lesser  governmental bodies in this province could clear away the fog  which has covered the dialogue between provincial officials and  those of municipalities. Until recently, for municipal officials to  get action out of Victoria, was like trying to grasp smoke.  There is a great need for the examination of the financing of all  forms of government from the federal field down to the municipal.  The B. C. government is putting pressure on municipal government  to assume greater responsibility. It has organized regional districts as municipal government then expects this form of government to make its bricks without the aid of governmental straw.  Government Iby the people for the people should not tolerate  a $130,000,000 provincial government surplus while lesser governments are pushed to the wall (by new and increasing responsibilities and left to struggle with insufficient finances.  A strange interlude  Ben Franklin once remarked it was strange that a man who  has wit enough to write a satire should have folly enough to publish it. This could be a good way to explain the unusual advertising' that appeared last week on the Sunshine Coast.  It did jar most people. The Coast News telephone was kept  quite busy with people demanding to know what was going on and  why such advertising should appear. Most questioners were chiefly  concerned with the unusual sponsorship of the advertisements, the  Better Citizens'Society of Gibsons.  Questioners wanted to know who make up this society? Then  they would ask who is going to be the next victim?  That is the part of the advertisement which created most  controversy. It also is, the most damaging. It could without too  much stretch of the imagination come close to falling within the  scope of creating a public mischief. No such society exists on  record.  The abjective of the advertiser was to stir things up That is  just what happened. Whether the stirring-up process achieved what  the advertiser desired is a matter for him to decide. The advertisement did smack of character assassination which could be well  left to other climes.  One thing is proven and that is that readers do read advertisements, ^vcx  Coast 'New*  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Father O'Grady of St. Vincent's Mission has been moved  to Ocean Falls where he will  take over the mission there.

PRINCE  Dr. Prince is associate  professor of sociology at 7  Eastern Washington State 7  College, where he directs  the undergraduate social  work program. He is an experienced family and marriage counsellor and has  done extensive research into  family problems.  Can success in marriage, be  predicted with some degree of  probability? Can we determine  during engagement the marital  adjustment of a couple? If so,  what are some of the factors  found to have a measurable relationship to success in marriage?  Marital prediction $ studies  have followed closely upon attempts to predict personal adjustment in other areas of human behavior. Prediction techniques have already been applied to school achievement,  vocational adjustment, personnel selection, behavior on  parole, etc.  Predicting marital adjustment or success in matrimony, v  however, is much more difficult than predicting adjustment  in these other fields. In the  aforementioned areas, prediction is made for the behavior  of only one person, while in  marital adjustment we must  take into account the interaction of two persons and how  they will react upon each other  in unforeseeable situations.  Nevertheless, studies conducted to date demonstrate the feasibility of predicting before mar-  Point of law  riage the probabilities of marital success. And ' a listing" of  selected factors family sociolo^  gists have found to have a relationship to success in marriage ''follows.'���:��� ;.  One, here is considerable evidence to support the claim that  happiness of parents has a significant relationship to the marital adjustment of the child.  In other words, a young person has a better than average  chance of marital success if he  has been reared in a home  where the parents are happily  mated and where they have  close and affectionate relations  with their children..  There are exceptions, of  course. Some whose home experiences have been unhappy  may be highly motivated to  avoid similar mistakes in their  own marriages. They may,  therefore, actually have better  marriages for having grown up  in homes characterized by conflict. In general,' however, happiness of parents' marriage is  an asset in looking forward to  marriage and an unhappy family  experience a liability.  Personal happiness in childhood is also associated with  favorable marital adjustment.  Happy children generally make  happy adults and well-adjusted  marriages; unhappy children  tend to make unhappy adults  and poorly adjusted marriages.  There is strong evidence that  mild but. firm discipline with  only moderate punishment and  lack of serious conflict with  parents   are   favorable   to   the  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied foi  What    is common  Question:  law?  Answer:   This is  a  shorthand  way of saying the common law  of England. This is one of the ;  sources of our law, the others '������-  being  statutes,  equity and customs  of the trade. In deciding  a  problem  under  common  law ;|  or equity it is necessary to re- :*  fer   to   cases   decided   by   the  courts in the past.  After the Norman Conquest  (1066), a regular system of  courts grew into being replacing the old primitive Anglo-  Saxon system of law. Judges  decided cases in the individual  counties according to local custom and as appeared to them  to be just. Naturally, different  judges had different notions of  what constituted justice and the  customs of the people varied  from place to place.  In order to make it certain  what the law was and to provide for a method of ascertaining the law on a given subject,  cases as they were decided  came to be recorded and these  were consulted by judges to  guide them as new cases came  before them for decision. This  case law was called common-  law because it was common  throughout England. It had its  great growth under the reign  of that great reforming King,  Henry II who reigned from 1154 y  to 1189. The doctrine of precedent grew up which requires  that lower courts must follow  the decisions of higher courts  where the facts of the case are  similar to the earlier reported  case. This system of reporting  cases still continues in existence. Now-a-days, there are  vast encyclopedias of the law  which may be consulted by a  lawyer in an attempt to find  precedents favorable to the decision he seeks.  Common law, however, is a  slippery term and has, in fact,  several meanings. Originally it  meant the case law that was  common to all of England.  Sometimes, it means case law  other than equity which is another and different type of law,  but which also has reported  cases.  Common law may also be  used to distinguish this system  from foreign systems of law,  such as Roman or French law  which have been adopted by  European countries and which  are codified or gathered together in vast systems of codes  of statute law.  The most usual sense of the  meaning of this  term  is,  how  ever, law that is not the result  of legislation, that is, the law  created by the custom of the  people and decision of the  judges.  The common law system  spread all over the English  speaking world and thrives today in full force and vigor in  all English speaking countries  and in all former and present  ^British colonies.. Today, when  fa lawyer in British 7 Columbia  or; Australia or Kentucky says  that the law on such and such  a subject is a matter of common law, he, of course, is not  necessarily referring to English cases alone, but also to  cases decided in his legal jurisdiction and its hierarchy of  courts.  Quebec in Canada and Louisiana in the U.S.A. do not have  the common law system. The  spirit of the common law is  that it grew from the customs,  habits and traditions of the  people of England. Other law  systems had, in a sense, an opposite source, that is, they were  laid down for the people by  some ruling or governing authority. Our system is much  more complicated and its rules  are more difficult to ascertain  but it provides a method of deciding each individual case on  its merits in accordance with  past decisions. Comprehensive  as the European codes of law  are, it is impossible to make  a rule to cover every imaginable set of circumstances that  can arise in the future.  marital adjustment of both hus1*  bands and wives.  ,'��� TMarriage7-in the late twenties  is Ymore favorable to marital  adjustment than marriage at  teenage or in the very early  twenties.  Participation in social life and  membership in social organizations, when not carried to an  extreme, have been found to  indicate a likelihood of success  in marriage. This seems especially true of women.  Adequate sex information, especially from encouraging parents, and restriction of petting  also appear favorable to marital  adjustment.  There is clear evidence that  religious training and church at  tendance ' indicate k likelihood  of success. inv ma^jciagei People  who are respectable in regard  to religion present themselves  as respectable in regard to marital adjustment.  Evidence is fairly extensive  that education and similar  amounts of education, shared  common interests prior to marriage, similar, cultural backgrounds, and similarity of religious faith are favorable to  the marital adjustment of a  couple.  Space does not permit a complete listing of the factors fami-  lysociologists have found to  have a relationship to success  in marriage. However, the fol-  (Coritinued on Page 3)  N.

Excerpts will also come from  another school hook by local  talent. It is called A Way of  Seeing.  THE   SPOOKY   ISLAND  In 1859 I was walking an old  trail which, had led me right to  an old shack. As I went in the  bedroom door opened then closed after I was in. I lay on the  bed     and     something  kept  on  bumping me  under the bed.  I  looked under ��� there was nothing. I went to the closet and a  skeleton fell out onto the floor.  Under the foot of the skeleton  there was  a piece of paper.  I  looked  at   it and   every   name  on   it    started    with    Spooky,  Spooky House,     Spooky    Barn,  Spooky Lake and Spooky Island.  I went into the last room  where there was a door with a  lock on it. I started looking  around for the key. I finally  found it under a mat which was  nailed to the floor. I opened  the door and there were stairs  going down. When I went down  the door shut and locked. I  found a tunnel full of water  and a boat too.  I got in and it started, rowing down the tunnel. It led me  out into the open sea. I kept  rowing, but I didn't know which  way I was going. At last I saw  an island.  I took out the map  to see if it was marked. It showed where you enter the basement, it showed how to get to  Spooky Island. When I got there  I tied my boat up around a  rock.  I started walking and I fell  in a hole and was sliding to  the bottom when I saw a chest  full of treasure. There was a  tunnel leading out of the hole.  I started walking out dragging  the treasure. When I got out  I put it in. the boat and went  home. I put the treasure under  the house without anybody seeing me. I told the other folks  but they didn't believe me. I  showed them the key, the map,  the boat, and the island. Last  of all I showed them the treasure under the house. ���Wilfred  Ralph Gonzales, Sechelt Residential School.  and headed after him. Then I  went up the wharf and grabbing my dad's .303 got our boat  and followed the other two  boats. When I caught up I slowed down and followed them.  Finally they went in to shore  and started a gun battle. One  man was shot so I pulled out  the .303. Just as I did one more  got shot, so I loaded the gun  and took a crack at the one that  was still alive. My shot hit him  in the head. I wanted the boat^  so I towed it in to the police  boat in Gibsons and said I had  found it in the middle of the  Strait of Georgia and I had the  right to place salvage claim on  it. That is the easy way I got  the boat named The Black  Panther. ��� Bobby Hopkins,  Langdale School.  #  *      *  THE BLACK  PANTHER  Once I was on the wharf with  my girl friend when I saw a  beautiful boat coming.into the  wharf. There was an old man  on it. When he was docked he  asked me if I had seen a Sunbeam Sports Car come down  the road. I said I had not. He  did not believe me, so I told  him again. This time he believed me.  Then all of a sudden a sports  car came down the road. The  two men got out and ran down  the wharf. Just as I was going  to tell that man that they were  coming he lept in his. boat.  When the two men came down  they started to shoot at him  but he got away. Then they ran  down  the  ramp,   stole  a'boat,  BALLET  ROYAL ACADEMY- OF DANCING SYLLABUS  Anne Gordon  Charter   Member   C.D.T.A.,   B.C.

A request by Ted Osborne for  a 100 foot extension of his water  lot lease in Porpoise Bay wharf  vicinity caane before Sechelt's  municipal council at the meeting held on Wednesday night  of last week. Council decided to  table it until more could be ascertained about the request.  Council sanctioned turning  over taxes7,collected for the  school board amounting to  $16,000. Up to the present council has turned over $37,000 and  there is still another $19,000  yet to be paid.  John Motherwell, professional  engineer retained to help council with its water problem informed council he was so busy  that he would try to meet with  them within a three week period or immediately after three  weeks had expired.  After hearing. Aid. Adele deLange report on a regional  health meeting council decided  to write the department of  health supporting the move for  financial assistance and the additional service of a health inspector. ,  With the idea of investigating  small boat harbors Aid. Morgan  Thompson asked that a copy of  the Small Boat Harbor Development Assistance act be ob-.  tained from the Queen's Printer.  A further approach will be  made to Sechelt Waterworks to  have the sunken areas where  pipes have been laid across  walk areas, be filled to a proper  level.  An arrangement has been  made with Don Henderson as a  public works maintenance man,  Aid. Charles E. Rodway reported.  Aid. Harold Nelson reported  on oil dumping from boats at  Porpoise Bay wharf and asked  that a letter be sent to the fisheries inspector of this area.  St Pierre, MP  af Sechelt  Last week's meeting at Sechelt with Paul St. Pierre,  Coast - Chilcotin member of  parliament gave Mr. St. Pierre  a chance to find out from the  public what problems they wanted him to consider during the  coming session.  Not too many attended this  function but Mr. St. Pierre obtained information on the background of some problems affecting the area. He is now in  Ottawa awaiting the opening of  parliament.  This week the Gap has been  ably filled by Maryanne West:  With reference to youthful -  dropouts, it seems to me hat  most of us are guilty of dropping out of society in one way  or another. For example, we  feelfree to criticize local government,, school board, executives etc. ��� but how many of  us are willing to run for office?  We may attend local events,  Fall Fair, July 1 celebration  etc. and remark safely "Not as  good as last year" but how  many of us are willing to contribute anything however small?  False modesty ��� I'm not good  enough ��� is a mighty poor excuse.  How many of us use our right  to vote ��� especially for local  referenda and plebiscites? Even  if we do vote, how many have  really taken the trouble to be  well informed and to know what  it's'all aibout?  We complain about poor ferry  - service, dirty beaches, poor facilities, roads etc. We "more than  likely berate the local civil servant, but how many of us bother  to write pur M.L.A.? Worse  still, how many say the kind  word, never mind write the gracious letter, in recognition of  good service?  If we are all doing our share  how come the youth organizations, sports, scouts and guides,  athletic clubs and church groups  are all crying out for responsible adult help?  We are holier than thou about  the excesses of youth, but how  many of us try to escape from  ourselves via over-indulgence in  alcohol, food, trashy literature,  aimless watching of TV, depen-  dance on tobacco, tranquilizers  etc.?  Which of us is really law a-  biding when the cop's not watching? Do we observe the posf.  ted .speed limits and resist thej.;  urge to slide'through stop signs-?**-  Aren't many of us just plain  selfish and lazy? How many of  those bottles of liquid refreshment taken on picnics or fishing  trips are brought back? Mostly  they're tossed into the bushes  or the sea to become a menace  of broken glass on trails and  beaches.  How many of us are too mean  to pay for garbage pick-up? Can  it be only tourists who leave  piles of unsightly and unsanitary refuse beside every trail,  creek and beachfront?  With this attempt to bridge  the Generation Gap the Editor  has offered an open forum ���  space to express our ideas and  thoughts ��� to try and communicate with each other. How many  of us will bother?  If so many of us hadn't chosen  to opt out perhaps we wouldn't  have empty churches, abandoned PTAs and youth groups,  penny pinching taxpayers ever  ready to settle for the cheap  deal today, never mind tomor-  row'si ruined spawning grounds,  polluted beaches, devastated  forests. We've short-changed  our children's need for continuing education, abandoned our  retarded, emotionally and mentally sick children. I can well  understand why the younger  generation is concerned about  us ��� our sense of values must  seem to have slipped a cog.  Most of us take a very philosophical attitude to war, poverty, slums, ghettoes, skid rows,  starvation ��� we don't complain  about animals being tortured in  the name of science or exploited to provide a Roman holiday  at stampedes, rodeos or circuses. We accept racial, religious and other forms of discrimination. We allow unethical  and disgusting advertising on  TV and in newspapers. We'd  cheerfully sell our inheritance  for a quick buck today. All  these things we can be tolerant  about and find excuses for ���  but let someone go skinny-swimming and we lift the roof!  There are more than 4,300  specimens from 352 species of  marine life on display at the  Vancouver Public Aquarium.  Measures to increase the  earning power of British Columbia salmon . fishermen and to  permit more effective management of the salmon resource by  controlling the entry of fishing  vessels into the fishery will be  put into effect in 1969, it was  announced today by Fisheries  Minister Jack Davis.  Mr. Davis said that the new  regulations will curtail the size  of the fishing fleet and, on a  long term basis, reduce production costs. He stressed, however, that boats presently fishing for salmon would not be deprived Of fishing rights. Any  person will still be able to buy  and sell these salmon vessels.  Government studies and briefs  from both fishermen organizations and industry groups have  sought limitation of licences,  Mr. Davis said.  The new regulations call for  two categories of vessels based  on recorded comimercial landings of salmon in 1967, or in  the current year up to September 6, 1968. In either category  transfer of vessel ownership  will be allowed with the salmon  fishing licence accompanying  the vessel.  In the first or A category will  be those vessels with a production of 10,000 pounds, or more of  pink or chum- salmon or the e-  quivalent in other species based  on the following formula: one  pound of sockeye or coho equals  three pounds of pink or chums,  and one pound of spring salmon  equals four pounds of pinks or  chums. In terms of landed val-  reg  ue of production this would be  equivalent to about $1,250.  Salmon licences for the vessels in this category will be renewable annually. If a vessel is  to be newly licenced in the salmon fishery it must replace an  A category vessel.  In the second or B category  will be those vessels with a production of less than 10,000  pounds of pink or chum salmon  or .the equivalent in other species reported in 1967, or in 1968  prior to Sept. 6. These vessels  may renew their salmon licence  annually but cannot be replaced  by a new vessel. Most of the  vessels in this category are  small vessels and in terms of  commercial catch account for  approximately one percent of  the value of the total salmon  production. This regulation will  allow these small vessels to continue in operation.  Vessels that were licenced for  salmon in 1967 or 1968 that did  not record any commercial landings in 1967, or prior to Sept. 6,  1968, will not be licenced for  salmon in 1969.  The salmon licence of a vessel that, is removed from the  fishery by an accident of loss at  sea will be cancelled and cannot be replaced. However, the  fisherman suffering such a loss  will be free to purchase another  licenced vessel in either category.  An appeal committee will be  set up to consider the licencing  of vessels that do not meet the  above qualifications because of  special   circumstances.    Repre  sentatives: of fishei_nen7 and industrygroups will ibe as&ed to  serve as advisers to the departmental committee.  The minister said that new  vessels built for ownership and  operation by native Indians under the Indian Fishermen's Assistance program would be exempt from the provisions of this  plan.-: . ���,���". -YY  It is the intention of the minister to increase the vessel licence fee to engage in the salmon fishery from $5 to $10 in  1969, the first step in increasing  the value of -the salmon fishing  privilege.  It is anticipated that, as the  fishing privilege becomes more  valuable due to the reduction of  the size of the fleet, vessel licence .fees for salmon fishing  will be further increased. Currently the cost to salmon fishermen is $10 for a commercial  fishing vessel registration, $5  for validation to engage in the  salmon fishery and $5 for a personal fishing licence.  Mr. Davis pointed out that the  new steps were the first in a  continuing series to establish a  firmer economic base for all  segments of the industry. He  added that a review oif their  affect would be made in 1970.  He said the new measures  would supplement, in the interests of a more profitable salmon  industry on the West Coast, the  conservation measures and the  research programs that are in  progress to ensure a continuing  and increasing supply of the  salmon  resource.   ,  September busy garden month  September can be a very perplexing, as well as a busy month  for the home gardener, for there  are so many jobs to be done,  requiring a great deal of attention and decision as well as  hard labor. At this time of the  year, many of you, no doubt,  are considering making a number of drastic changes to the  garden to make it more attractive. This may be accomplished  often by simply moving a two  or three-year-old tree or shrub  which is not quite in the right  place, adding to the patio,  building a walk, or by the complete renovation of the perennial border.  . If you have decided that the  perennial border needs renovating, there is no better time  than this month for the job.  Many perennials  may be  divi-  More building  With building permits for  Gibsons village at the $193,100  mark at the end of August,  Clerk David Johnston of Gibsons municipal council has not  hesitated in saying that this  year's estimates will go well  beyond the $200,000 mark.  With home building on the  upturn in Gibsons from the low  of 1966 when it totalled $93,168  it is expected that with the  approach of sewers coupled  with a good water supply plus  boundary expansion, that figures of the past will appear  small when the influx of new  residents   really  gets going.  Peak building was reached in  1965 when the total was $420,400.  Wide experience  George Sawyer, owner of  Nuts and Bolts Sales and Service, Gibsons brings with him  from his former White Rock  Shop, a wide experience in the  repair of washers, dryers, electric stoves and vacuum cleaners. He is incorporating this  with outboard motors, lawn and  mower repairing along with  chain saws.  He has brought with him from  White Rock a lawn mower  sharpener which he believes is  the only one on the Sunshine  Coast. He operated in White  Rock for eight years. His earlier  training included a period in the  Los Angeles major appliance  schools and he still makes periodic trips to Los Angeles to  keep  abreast  of developments.  ded right now and those that  are still' flowering may be  moved with little setback or loss  of growth. To renovate the perennial border, you should dig  every plant out and move them  to an area where you can place  them temporarily in a trench.,  Dig the border deeply and add  lots of compost, manure and  bonemeal and' divide and replant.   7  Although it is not the correct  time��to' divide iris or poppies,  they will not suffer too much if  the job is done as soon as possible.  On the other hand, it is a  good time to carefully replant  lilies, divide peonies, lift shrubs,  evergreens and of course to  plant spring flowering bulbs.  Before the first frost, you  should take cuttings from your  choice geraniums and bring  in some of the old plants. After  taking the cuttings and inserting them in vermiculite or  clean sand, cut down-the old  plant and pot it in a good soil  mixture in a four or five-inch  pot; then allow the new growth  to produce cuttings which you  may take in February or  March. Keep the plants in a  well-lighted window or under  flourescent lights in the basement. Cuttings may also be  taken of other tender bedding  plants such as lantana, heliotrope, begonias (wax), impa-  tiens and coleus. These will give  you good indoor plants until you  need them for spring planting.  Because autumn is the time  of the year when the majority  of weeds complete their growth  cycle, new seedlings offer little  competition. The scars from  renovation heal quickly, too.  Fertilizer, bolster seeding and  good autumn weather add up to  a thick, fresh turf within a few  weeks, that will be pride of the  household next spring.  The early autumn season, September to early October, provides the last opportunity to destroy a number of weeds that  survive to mar the lawn in the  spring.  It's a good season to get rid  of dandelions -���and plantains,  to say nothing of winter annuals such as duckweed or cress,  which may be starting at this  time.  Weed control in autumn utilizes much the same chemicals  as in other seasons. To control  perennial broadleaf weeds, use  2,4-D exactly as called for in  directions with the product, and  preferably on a reasonably  warm day when the weeds are  growing  actively.  For some of the harder-to-kill  weeds, such as ground ivy, clover and mouse-ear chickweed,  2,4-D/Mecoprop or 2,4-D/Mec-  oprop/Dicamba mixtures are  recommended.  These chemicals will not  harm the better turf grasses.  - Kentucky...-bluegrass, and its  many varieties, and the fine  fescues, are especially tolerant  of most chemical treatments.  Bentgrasses,, especially the  creeping sorts, may exhibit  temporary discoloration.  This is a good time to dig up  some of the more shapely plants  for decorating the house.  When picking apples, avoid  bruising the fruits. They store  best at a temperature of about  forty to forty-five degrees. Do  not pick them until the fruit  stalks break off easily as the  apples are lifted.  Watch the pumpkins and  squash this week. They are easily frozen when the temperature  gets much lower than 28 degrees F., and yet should not be  harvested until the outer skin  hardens to the extent that it is  difficult to make an impression  on it with the fingernail. They  will store for a longer period  with Droper ripening and handling prior to harvesting.  Get your ticket!  There are still a few tickets  available for the Sunshine  Coast Senior Citizens' raffle before the prize drawing which  will be at the end of September.  Drawing date will be announced next week.  For those who have not yet  bought a chance on the hand  knitted bedspread, the priceless  Eskimo soapstone carvings and  the 400 day clock, time is short,  but tickets are still available  from Mrs. Irene Greene and  Mrs. Terry Thompson in Gibsons, Mr. Eric Rosen in  Roberts Creek, Mrs. E.P.

COMPLACENT   DINNER  Some wasps sting and paralyze their prey without killing  it. The insect is then placed in  the nest with a wasp egg. When  the egg hatches, fresh food is  ready and waiting for the larva.  The digger wasp is selective  and chooses only a certain tarantula spider as food for its  young. Curiously enough, the  spider seenis quite unaware of  its doom and allows the wasp  to crawl over its body in search  of the vulnerable sppt in which  to place it's sting.

Upon filing a claim recently, I was unable to send my  insurance book with my application for benefit as my employer  mailed it to the head office of  the company to have stamps  placed in it. I asked for my  book and my foreman told me  that the company would mail  the book directly to jme but I  have never received it. Today  I received a letter from the Unemployment Insurance Commission advising me that I have  been disqualified indefinitely for  failing to lodge my book. The  head office of the company is  over 1,000 miles from, my home  What action do they expect me  to take to obtain my book?  A. You should advise the Unemployment Insurance Commission office handling your claim  that you asked for your book  and were unable to obtain it.  The Unemployment Insurance  Commission office will then  take steps to contact your employer on your behalf. If it is  found that you were unable to  deposit your insurance book for  reasons, beyond your control,  the indefinite disqualification  imposed on your claim will be  rescinded.  Q. How many contributions  do I need to qualify for regular  benefits?  A. At least 30 contributions in  the last 104 weeks. Eight of  these contributions must have  been in the last 52 weeks or  since your last regular benefit  period, whichever is shorter.  If you are making a new  claim less than 104 weeks after  the commencement of your  base initial claim, in addition  to the 30 and 8 you will need  24 contributions in the last 52  weeks, or since the commencement of your last regular or  seasonal claim, whichever is  the longer period.  Q. I am unemployed at the  moment, but "I worfc on weekends. May I continue to receive  benefit?  A. Yes, you may continue to  receive benefit, but you must  declare your earnings and the  days worked in the claimant's  report you complete every two  weeks.  Help needed  by villages  Both villages have engineering  reports on sewer systems but  the matter of cost has been the  stumbling block. Now that the  provincial government is making some effort to keep pollution of waters under control,  municipalities are being pushed  into the.sewerage business and  some governmental money  sources must, become available.  In both instances the councils  have been mulling over the idea  of village sewer systems. Gibsons is further advanced having  plans for a vote probably this  side of Christmas.  Both Mayor Feeney and  Mayor Swain will keep their  fingers crossed in the meantime hoping that there will ibe  federal as well as provincial  support available when needed.

This  decision was taken at an executive meeting of the association on Monday, August 26.  The executive, elected at a  recent general meeting, consists  of Fred Corley, president;  Grover Sinclair, past president;  Raymond Hull, vice-president;  Lloyd Elrick, secretary-treasurer and Mrs. Peter Sluis.  The association is concerned  with furthering the interests of  the Gower Point area, from the  ��SO����W��*>��i��^-A'AV.-.;.-.-.-.-...-...-.-.w^  western limits of Gibsons village to the end of the Gower  Point Road.  Pollution is a major concern  of the Association, pollution of  creeks and subterranean water  sources, and pollution of the  sea and shore by sewage or  other means.  The Association will continue  to press for zoning regulations  that will protect the area from  ugly, dirty or noisy developments "~ such as junk-yards,  gravel-pits or other industrial  operations. It will join with the  rest of the Sunshine Coast in  pressing for an improved Lang-  dale-Horseshoe Bay ferry service.

It is  understandable that there is a  great deal of confusion and  speculation about the symptoms  and causes of stomach  ulcers.  Stress, worry, fatigue, poor  eating halbits and the other  known causes are certainly contributing factors in the development of an ulcer. The Canadian  Medical Association says, the  key, factor, however, is usually  an- excessive amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.  This produces the symptom of  pain, heartburn, nausea and  vomiting. Many people experience these symptoms without  having an ulcer. The excess of  hydrochloric acid in the stomach  may only be producing inflama-  tion.  An ulcer is a small hole in  the lining of the stomach, or  more often in the lining of the  duodenum, which is that pdr-  tion of the small intestine that  follows directly after the stomach.  The CM.A. advises that when  the symptoms persist the person should see his doctor for an  examination and advice regarding further tests and x-rays.  The doctor will give advice regarding proper diet and drugs  for treatment. Ulcers should  not be neglected, even if the  discomfort is small, because of  the dangers of hemorrhage and  perforation.  perty-owners within our limits,"  says President Corley." We  want to get 100 percent membership, of residents and absentee-owners alike. If we work  together, we can preserve Gower Point as one of the loveliest  residential areas on this coast.  At the general meeting of the  Association Frank West described the proposed regional water  supply. He also pointed out that  the Regional District has considerable powers, and is in process of getting greater powers,  to work for the good of residents. But the district cannot  act to best advantage without  detailed, authoritative, local information. It is from such local  organizations as that in Gower  Point, that such information can  be forwarded to senior governments.

Mr. Jack  Nelson has been elected .Campaign Chairman.  We feel confident that the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  will generously support CARS  through the local Lions Club.  In so doing they could bring  hope to the child victims of  juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, of  whom 123 are, at the present  time, undergoing treatment by..  CARS in Vancouver. In 5% of  these cases blindness would develop without early diagnosis  and treatment. Hope too, could  be brought to the arthritic wage"  earner with heavy financial responsibilities, as well as to the  arthritic housewife with a family to care for.  It is not generally known that  approximately 70% of all people disabled by arthritis are of  working age. Imagine what this  means in terms of cost to the  economy!  CARS main objective is to  find the cause of and cure for  arthritis. Its researchers work  unremittingly to this end. At  .the same time CARS brings relief and hope to thousands  through its treatment services.  Early diagnosis and treatment  can prevent permanent disability in 4 out of 5 cases.  We know the Sunshine Coast  citizens can be relied upon to  respond to the appeal which the  Lions Club will be sending  through the mail. May we express the hope that the response  will be generous and prompt,  thus making the load lighter for  all concerned and giving much  needed encouragement. We  must not forget that neither  / CARS nor the Lions Club enjoys having to ask for money,  bht neither do the victims of  arthritis enjoy their pain.  ���  Mrs. Eileen   Goldberg, Campaign Manager.  Editor: I wish to relate a  similar incident to that recently  reported in a letter to the editor  with reference to the conduct of  a Giibsons cafe owner. I was  sitting at one of the side tables  in the Welcome Cafe when in  walked a man and woman attired in a manner not always  socially acceptable.  Nevertheless, they were gentle humans and no doubt Canadian citizens. But before they  could get half-way to the counter, the man in behind leaned  over, stared at the two visitors,  then bawled out at the top of  his lungs, "We don't serve Jews  here."     ,  Now, this isn't Germany in  the '30s, but it does seem we've  spent our six war service years  in vain. Wasn't that last world  holocaust to destroy hate?  Probably not, but that's what  we thought at the time. And  now, here it is growing nice  and robust right in our own  back yard.  I'm neither Jew nor Hippy,  but I'd rather a thousand of  each than one barbaric creature. Better a respectful tongue  from shaibby attire, than malice  from the impeccably dressed.  I hope veterans who still remember what they were fighting for will avoid patronizing  this particular establishment.  -��� Maxwell Hammersmyth.  Editor: I must add my name  to those residents of the Sunshine Coast, concerned with pollution. If Giibsons is allowed to  carry out their present plans  we will no longer have a Sunshine Coast but a Sun Slime  Coast. Raw effulent treated by  grinding alone does not prevent  pollution. This problem affects  those communities bordering  Gibsons and their feelings  should be given proper consideration. Carol Anne Sinclair,  Gower Point.
