Array Provincial Library9  Victoria, B. C��  SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published  at Gibsons,   B.(_C  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number 37,   Sept.   26,   1968.  lOeper copy  A better moment     Letters     Perrault warns chamber  in parliament  By PAUL ST. PIERRE, M.P.  Coast-Chilcotin  One of the features of the  house of commons which comes  to the attention Pi a nW Member of parliament is that there  seems to be a lot of politics in  the place. This is not always  attractive.  The games politicians (play  irritate some Canadians and  bore a great many more. Only  a few findthem good sport.  Perhaps for these reasons,  many new members of the  House will remember one day  the Throne Speech .debate as  Diefenbaker Day. It began' this  way:   .: 7Y7''>Y;"'-'  Prime Minister Trudeau rose,  very-much at ease,7very relaxed  -Y'a refreshing change from the  attitude of barely concealed  boredom* with which he spoke  for an hour and ten minutes on  the Throne Speech itself.  ' There was, said the prime  minister, a very select club in  Canada ��� the Prim,�� Ministers'  Alumni Association. There are  only three living memlbers, only  one in the house of. commons  chaipter ���\and I must say that  chapter has never been in better  shape."  It's doubtiful that many members of the opposition parties  remembered that it was Mr.  Diefenbaker's birthday, but  these words were enough to  signal that the most prominent  private member in Canada was  involved in some sort of celebration; and a few thumped -  their desks in applause.    '  The, prime minister continued  "It's distinguished and veryjac-,  five' <representative ���- here T.Yis  known by different names- to  different people ��� Chief Great  Eagle, Chief Walking Buffalo,  Chief Many  Spotted  Horses ���  Absentee voting  motion  made  Paul St Pierre, member of  parliament for the new British  Columbia riding of Coast-Chilcotin, has introduced a private  member's resolution in the  house of commons calling for  absentee voting in federal elec-  .t-ohs. Y Yv .7. .���/^.::.:77 .   ���_:.. :������  The resolution called a notice  of motion, also urges changes in  the counting of Armed Forces'  ballots and the extension of  voting rights to Canadian civil  servants posited! to foreign  cobntries.  "The resolution's prime purpose," said St. Pierre,' "Is to  enable Canadians to vote on  election day at polling places  far from their homes."  His notice .of  motion  would  entitle  the  elector  to vote  on  polling day in his Electoral District, by casting his vote in a  pollingstation; ?or Electoral District other ihari;h.S;'own, using  an    absentee    ballot;    provide  , that Armed Services ballots be  1 called absentee ballots and be  counted     simultaneously    with  ; other absentee ballots without,  ' however,   altering   the  present  method   of   balloting   by   the  'Armed   Services   and   provide  that   members   of  the   Public  Services  of  Canada  arid' their  dependents     stationed    abroad  shall be able to cast absentee  . ballots in the manner prescribed  for the Armed Services.  OFF TO HONDURAS  Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hansen  and their five children plus one  dog will be leaving Gibsons  early in October for Honduras,  South America on mission work  for the Jehovah Witnesses.  It is their intention to travel  by car stopping at Motels or  camps along the, route. They  have lived in Gibsons for about  five years.  and some of us from other tribes  call him by other names at  other times. But in the House  of commons and to' the people  of Canada in general, he is the  honourable member for Prince  Albert.  (Canadians do not know him  as the member for Prince Albert.- They know him as John  Diefenbaker. But names may  not be named in the commons.  The prime minister was doing  his best.)  "The opportunity I have  seized to make this report to  the house of commons is on the  occasion of the right honorable  gentleman' s seventy-third birthday. On behalf of the government, indeed on behalf of all the  people of Canada, I want to wish  him many happy returns, of the  day. I hope I will have the occasion for many years, and possibly even my successors will  have the occasion, to make this  annual report."  The prime minister then  crossed the floor of the house to  pin a blue carnation in Mr. Dief-  enbaker's lapel. "An expression  of good will from the flower  people," he called it.  Mr. Stanfield, Mr. Lewis of  the New Democratic party and  Mr. Caouette of the Creditistes  added their congratulations, but  the house was impatient. It wanted to hear Mr. Diefenbaker.  When he rose, it was to speak  briefly, but with an enveloping  warmth.   '  ',The house of commons is a  place where from time to time  we reveal an understanding of  each other, and an .appreciation  of members sitting^ ^opposite,,  .which, dispels^the ~%aceibities "of -  party warfare and which causes  each of us to form deep and  abiding admiration for those  members who sit in every part  of the house."  What history may say of Mr.  Diefenbaker's career may be  left to history. The future will  be better prepared to deal with  his place in Canadian .affairs  than any man of the present.  But there could be no mistaking  the quality he lent.the house of  commons in those few minutes.  Every spirit was lifted.  "The longer honorable members are in parliament the more  they will Jove the institution. To  the young members who have  just come in, I would say that  for the first six months after you  are here you will wonder how  you got here. Then after that,  you will wonder how the rest of  the members ever got here." r  One of Parliament's better  moments.

He was addressing the 21st  anniversary banquet of Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce Saturday night at a .fume-'  tion attended by about 150 persons in the new Peninsula  Dining room.      7  What wa needed was a bigger  economic pie from which to  finance the country. New industries were required. Slow growth  will have to be scrapped by  keeping a closer tab on unemployment conditions. Trade barriers could be eased. He suggested that trade liberalization  should be welcomed by Canadians. He preferred multilateral  instead of bilateral agreements.  Some members of parliament  were planning to fight for lower  tariffs.  Mr. Perrault's theme was im-.  proved economic development.  He said he considered it a great  privilege to be a member of  parliament no matter what party. His first experiences in parliament were to hear the first  young Indian member make his  maiden speech- and later, the  first Canadian born negro member speak. There were, he  added, emphasizing the ethnic  breadth of parliament, members  in the house of Irish, French and  Polish descent.  Separatism lie regarded1 a  great tragedy.

One of the governmental factors .. that could help the Sunshine Coast area, Mr. Parrault  said, was the federal ARDA  policy, but because the provincial/7 and federal governments  cannot get together there is a  roadblock. There is no reason  why some development could  not be accomplished. The area's  trouble is that it is too closely  linked with Vancouver in the  matter of economic factors.  Eric Hensch, president of the  chamber was chairman and introduced James Parker and  Jack Mayne, two original members of the board of trade organized in Secheit. Mr. Parker  explained the reason why he  was thus honored with Mr.  Mayne was that both had been  able to pay their dues over the  21 years.  J^hn Hayes, a former president of the chamber, oh behalf  of the chamber presented . Mr.  Parker and Mr. Mayne with  life memberships, not only as a  token of appreciation from the  chamber but also from all pro-  Happy message  sent by Queen  A message from Queen Elizabeth was read at Saturday  night's celebration of Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce 21st anniversary.

So many of the members of  the auxiliary have worked hard  in the past years for worthwhile  projects, many of them are  getting on in years and find it  hard to get around, but most of  them are fortunate enough to  see where they are going on  behalf of other, less fortunate  people.  When your CNIB canvasser  calls, please give what you Can,  no matter how small, it is so  heartwarming to see with our  own eyes the look of gratitude  from those who cannot see. Help  them please when your authorized CNIB canvasser calls. She  can identify herself; she also  will have the signature of her  campaign chairman, Mrs. Schindel said. Ask for CNIB credentials before making your donations. We are not selling  books, or asking for donations  for books   alone,   we  will  not  have books to show you. So  please make certain you are in  contact with an authorized CNIB  canvasser, she added.  Dr A. J.

He used them to describe in a few words the position  in which the nation finds itself.  Perhaps what Prime Minister Trudeau said earlier during ttie  debate on the Speech from the Throne will explain what Mr. Perrault meant. Here is what Mr. Trudeau said:  "Even if the government were to introduce no new programs,  the costs of some existing ones will rise faster than any reasonable  estimates of the rates of growth of our economy and of government  revenues. Under federal-provincial arrangements. which now exist  in the field of health services, welfare programs and post-secondary education, for example, developments over which the government has little or no control will result in substantial and continuous increases in the demands on the federal treasury.  "The magnitude of thi_ problem is apparent when we realize  that the costs which are sbared by the federal and provincial  governments in these activities could more than double in the next  four years from their current high level of approximately $3.5  billion."  In other words we are running too fast now so we can stand  still. It should not be thought that this economic paradox is solely  a Canadian condition. Not so! It can be found in the United States,  Britain, France and most other countries.  Robert Stanfield, Conservative leader, agreed on the subject of  economics. This is what he said in the reply to the Throne Speech:  "We know that a large part of the problem in regard to the rate of  growth is related to inflation. The economic council suggested that  between 1963 and 1970 we should not permit the price level to rise  by more than 10 percent, but already by 1968 we have inflation to  the extent of 16 percent. This is eating into our growth rate. It is  taking a bigger and bigger chunk out of what the wage earner  takes. It is bearing more heavilly on our pensioners, upon those  with low incomes."  He blamed inflation on the poor management by the government.  David Lewis, NDP spokesman, when it tfame his turn to reveal  the NDP party stand, said that in the field of economic policy all  we have had so far is retrenchment and emphasis on the irrelevant  concept of the balanced budget. This is not merely outdated, especially at a time of sizeable unemployment, but it creates a  financial strait-jacket which makes it Impossible to deal imaginatively with the problems crushing many sectors of Canadian life,  he said.  NDP policies have never been noted for their desire to consider  retrenchment, so the remarks by Mr. Lewis are true to form.  Mr. Perrault in his speech to the Chamber pf icomanerce Saturday night implied that we need a bigger economic pie, with more  new industries. We must stop being too greedy and must slow up  inflation. We are in trouble if we lack proper fiscal controls. His  reference to greediness and inflation speaks for itself.  The United States, Britain, France and most other nations are  feeling the effects of the general whirlpool of economic disruption.  Perhaps a slowing up and a careful appraisal of the situation is  what Prime Minister Trudeau is trying to achieve. '  Paul  ST. PIERRE, MP  Coasf - Chilcotin  Some reflection on a inew  member's first week on Parliament Hill:  During the election campaign  I forecast that a Liberal government would make some hard  and unpleasant decisions if  elected. There have been a few.  The cancellation of the telescope project in the south Okanagan was one, cancellation of  the winter works program another.  I believe there will be more.  The prime minister has not  taken me into his confidence on  the matter. He is not likely t'p  do so, having taken pains recently to warn his own cabinet  ministers that they will be  promptly discharged if they  violate their oath of cabinet  secrecy. But the tone of the  Throne Speech was cautious and  there was much emphasis on  the need for getting the Can- ,  adian economy into better bal-  ance.  This balance can't be achievT  ed by following the common  practice of recent years in  which governments have spent  first and wondered about where  to  find the   money  afterwards.  Cancellation of the winter  works program will impose  hardship on some this winter.  However there are indications  that the program was not altogether wise or equitable. Of all  the winter works money spent  in the nation, more than half  went to a single province ���  Quebec. This seems less than  an even balance.  The cancellation of the telescope project was bruising in  another sense. Half a century  ago, Canada led the world in  astronomical research. We have  slipped far from this position  and will slip farther as a result  of the latest decision.  However I was one of those  who criticized government overspending and demanded surgery on. the budget. I have no  reason to scream at the sight  of the knife.  In  the house    of    commons,  government and opposition  benches are separated by an  aisle the width of which is can-  culated as 'follows: It is wide  enough that two men, pointing  swords at one another, will fail  to touch the tips of their blades.  It was a custom introduced centuries ago by the British,' who  don't like arguments to become  messy. As you can judge from  this, tradition has a prominent  role in a Canadian parliament.  Consider, for instance, the, official opening of this session:  At 10:30 the commons met and  had no Speaker. Summoned to  the senate by a distinguished  gentleman known as The  Gentleman Usher of the Black  Rod, a quarter of a thousand  MPs milled about (behind the  bar of the senate, chatting  about the weather, their wives  dresses, the ' cost thereof and  other such weighty matters.  Asked if they had elected a  speaker,  their answer was  no.  The, governor general might  be pardoned for saying "What?  Again! "In hundreds of years,  the commons has never remembered to elect a speaker until  asked. Possibly for this reason,  His Excellency Roland Michener  didn't attend that morning. He  sent a deputy to get the usual .  discouraging news.  . The MPs,'still a noisy gaggle,  rambled back to their own'  chamber to choose Mr Lucien  Lamoureux, to the surprise of  absolutely nobody.  Prime Minister Trudeau and  Oposition Leader Robert Stanfield led Mr. Lamoureux to the  platform from which he will  act as the commons chairman  and official spokesman.  Both held his arms very firmly. The prime minister even  threw a hammerlock on Mr.  Lamoureux' left arm. This, too,  has a meaning. In the days  when British'-kings were less inhibited than now they were apt  to deal unkindly with commons  speakers who brought them bad  news. Ever since, reluctant  speakers have been frogmarched to their chair.  Having so spent the morning,  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons new Twilight Theatre  was officially opened and>Eric  Thomson, bagpiper, greeted the  100 guests with a blow on the  pipes.  Construction on tbe new St.  Mary's hospital at Sechelt has  been ordered and contractors  will fee on the job within one  week.  bumping of garbage on the  B & K road, Roberts Creek  has raised fears with Roberts  Creek Community association  that when the rains come the  water  supply will  be  polluted.  Tenders have been called for  the construction of a Credit  Union building at Madeira Park  lar because of tree life destruction, Terue Borrodaile in a letter said he was moving out of  the area.  Farmers Institute plans to  sponsor a project to make Gibsons high school grounds suitable as (a playing field.  B.C. Power Commission has  decided hot to extend its service until a stretch of road near  Halfmoon Bay has been surveyed and put  into decent  shape.  MPs refreshed themselves with  a hearty noon meal and returned to the doors of the senate  in the afternoon in answer to;  a second summons from the  governor  general.  There they heard the Throne  Speech, most of them by loudspeaker. Few could see the governor general.  MPs may not enter the senate  chamber. (It is one of the few  "powers still held by the Canadian senate ��� barring MPs.)  MPs, in turn, never, call .the  senate the senate. In the Commons Chamber, the senate is  referred to as the other place.  On the following morning, debate on the Speech from the  Throne began. This, too, sustained one small delay. 7  Before the motion to adopt  the Speech from : the Throne  was introduced, the prime min  ister introduced a bill so innocuous in'...'content that scarcely-  an MP in parliament could at  this- moment'recall it. This is  to demonstrate; that the business  of the people comes before the  business of .the-Crown.  Curious place,  Ottawa.  Coast-Chilcotin is a vast area,  poor in communications. Also  Ottawa is very distant. During  a session, a member of parlia-  , merit must ^depend to 7a large  extent upon letters from constituents in order to keep himself informed.        t  No postage stamp is required  for letters from residents of  Coast Chilcotin addressed to:  Paul St: Pierre, MP, Coast Chilcotin, Ottawa;  I hppe that even some who  are not angry will find time to  write..  ...���.-* .'���'".���  N.

They went downstairs and I  followed and watched myself on  T.V! I sat on the rocking, chair  and the fboy on T.V. sat down.  I started rocking. He started  rocking. Mom and Dad walked  in.

I slowed down to ��� see what it  was but when I tried to pass it  just manouvered in front of the  spaceship. Suddenly I realized  what it was, it was a thing-a-  bing-ig-enstden (zut- for short).  I remembered that a zut was  unmanouverable from my space  training.  The only thing that could kill  a ZUT was a zotmic bomb. I  didn't have a zotmic bomb with  me, so I thought if I hurried I  could make one in half an hour.  By the time I got the zotmic  bomb finished the ZUT had almost reached the( ship. I loaded  a zotmic bomb in the'. bomb  shooter and shot. With a loud  explosion that was the end of  the ZUT. ��� Allan Feeney, Langdale school.  D. G. DOUGLAS VARIETY & PAWTS  McCall's Patterns, Laces, Remnants & Singer Supplies  Sunnycrest Plaza, Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2615  THE   UPROAR  The severe tremor uprooted  the towering trees. It swept  through the broken countryside '  swiping at everything within its  super-strong reach. The uproar  caused houses arid barns to go  swirling into the rumpus of the  furious wind. This violence lasted for three terrible days. Then  one savage gust of wind came  along and everything stood still.  The houses crashed piteously to  the board-strewn ground. Then  the blood - splashed "survivors  walked sadly through the piled  up houses to bury the dead.  Then they kneeled down and  prayed for help.  Soon after came the floods.  ���    Nina    Christmas,    Roberts  Creek school.  Remembrance??  It is likely that in the last few  years a good many people have  come to feel that there is a  lot of hypocrisy in the holding  of the November 11th Remembrance Day Holiday. For most  of those who are given the holiday ��� the civil service, post office, financial institutions and  schools ��� it is simply another  day off. Services are sparsely  attended, hardly noted by most.  Barney Dansonr-<newly-elected  MP for Toronto-York North,  has proposed that the holiday  be cancelled and that in its  place a day of remembrance be  celebrated on the Sunday prior  to November 11th. He proposes  , also that veterans of all nations,  including those . that Canada  fought against in either of the  two World Wars, be encouraged  to take part in the memorial  services.  Mr. Dansom's proposal could  give us a better Remembrance  Day than the present thin-heart- ���  ed affair. Perhaps the only objections would come from union  leaders, who have succeeded in  writing the present holiday into  some contracts. But even they  must feel that what is implied  by Remembrance Day is hardly the occasion for a paid holiday. ������ The Clip Sheet.  Coast News, Sept. 26, 1968      ;3  New issue of  savings  coming  A new series of Canada Savings bonds that will repay two  and one-half times an investor's  original purchase after 14 years  is annoiinced;.by Hon. E. J. Benson, minister of Finance.  This 24th series of Canada  Savings bonds, which goes on  sale this fall, offers purchasers  an interest yield that averages  '6.75 percent when the (bonds  are held to maturity on November 1, 1C82. -    Y    '  The new Canada Savings  bond issue continues the feature begun two years ago  whereby investors have the option of compound interest, by  which they may, leave their, interest coupons uncashed in order to earn extra interest. In  the last two regular series, this  option allowed purchasers to  double theirToriginal investment  over 13-year periods.  Now, with the new series, a  purchaser   can   get  back  after.  14 years $250 for every $100 invested. This is because at maturity, the purchaser who puts  his interest to work in this way  will get back $95.50 in regular  interest coupons and $54.50 in  compound interest payments,  along with his, $100 priginal investment.  Bonds of the new. series will  i>e available on October 7, will  be dated Nov., and may be pur-  15 at face, value without pay-  dhased up to and including Nov.  ment of accrued interest.  UIC news  Q. Why do government forms,  including UIC ones, have to be  so difficult to understand, and  what is being done to make  sure that people understand and  so give the right answers?  A. It is necessary that forms  completed in connection with  a claim for benefit provide all  information required to enable  the insurance officer to arrive  at a decision conforming with  the requirements to the Legislation. The amount of information required depends on the  nature of the 'issue involved.  The forms used in connection  with claims, for benefit are subject to continuous review and  changes are made when it is  evident that a particular form  is causing difficulty to the public. When changes are being  considered the "'��� suggestions  from both office staff and the  public are  taken into  account.  Q. Must I obtain my Unemployment Insurance book before  filing an application for benefit?  A. No, it is not necessary to  have your book in order to file  an application for benefit. However, it is important that you deposit it as soon as possible at  your UIC office, so that the  contributions contained in your  book may be computed. If you  do not deposit it, or do not take  the necessary steps to have  your book deposited at the UIC  office, you run the risk Pf being  disqualified from receiving benefit.  W88&8&  HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE  . Among the few known factors that play a part in the  cause of primary high blood  pressure ��� hypertension-heredity is by far the most important. The Canadian Medical Association reports, that an inherited defect of some sort is  suggested.  It is a well-established fact  that there are "���families with  strong tendencies to hypertension. Individual members of  such families will often, show  tendencies to high blood pressure early in life. These tenden-  R Ns. resume  their meetings  The Sunshine Coast chapter  of the Registered Nurses Association resumed its regular  meetings Sept. 9 at Seaside  Park. The weather was perfect  for a beach party and members  enjoyed .it. Some time was  given to "discussing the possibility of a wine and cheese  party as a fund raising project  in the near future.  Copies of tentative plans for  the coming year were given to  all, date and places of meeting  to be announced later.  October dinner meeting at 7  p.m. at Castle Martinez, Davis  Bay; Nov., business meeting  and speaker; Dec, Christmas  party. ���'  Jan., business meeting and  film; Feb.,* dinner meeting;  March, business and speaker;  April, dinner meeting; May,  business and June, dinner meeting.  cies might include nose bleed,  flushing of the skin, migraine  attacks, palpitations and nervousness.  When the patient shows an  elevation of. his blood pressure  during his first visit, to a particular physician, the doctor  may assume that the patient  has unstable blood pressure. He  has probably suffered for years  from transient hypertension before permanent high blood pressure became established.  One survey indicating the importance of heredity revealed  some startling facts. In families where the parents had normal blood pressure, only 3%  of the children developed the  disease. Where one parent was  hypertensive, 28% of the children developed high blood pressure. When both parents were  hypertensive, 45% af the children were later afflicted; It is  obvious, concludes the C.M.A.,  that if a family history of hypertension is present, regular medical check-ups take on new importance or as one physician  puts it: When it comes to high  blood pressure children are advised to choose their parents  carefully.

One  can hardly believe that human  beings could be so lacking in  vision as ever to make plans to  desecrate the sea and land, especially when they know there  is a way out of such foulness.  These sewage plants are not  expensive considering that they  may be paid for over a long  period. It is expensive to destroy the fish in the sea, wildlife  on land and human health and  pleasure. Such a plant would  help to clean up Gibsons waterfront which is gradually becoming more dirty as the years  go on. ��� Kathleen W.

Bill C-195, an Act to amend  the Criminal Code, given first  reading in the House of Cpm-  monsfof: Canada, Dec. 21, 1967,  provides^ for the compulsory  registration of all firearms in  Canada, including rifles, and  shotguns. This same bill also  contains controversial liberalizing sections on abortion and  homosexuality.  Bill C-195 will, undoubtedly,  be presented early in the next  parliament for final approval.  Concerned Canadians and all  owners of rifles and shotguns  should immediately write, telephone or telegraph their federal member of parliament,  forcibly stating their disapproval of this gun legislation and  demand that their M.P. oppose  it in every way possible. ��� S.  J. Neilson, Box 1,000 Carlton  Place, Ontario.  Editor: Recent happenings in  Czechoslovakia bring to mind  the sequence of events in the  communization of that country  twenty years ago. The sequence  included: registration of firearms, confiscation of firearms  a few months later and communization by legislation shortly thereafter.  This familiar pattern of events  has   occurred   in   many  areas  Editor: I saw your editorial  in last week's paper about a  Community hall.

It had  been her intention to spend two  days only, but she decided to  stay the extra day, which she  felt was warranted.  During her visit, she slept in  one of the rooms in the sick  bay, and she had her meals with  the boys in the cafeteria-type  dining room, having the same  kind of bill of fare as did the  boys. She was given her own  set of keys on her arrival at the  school, and as a result, was able  to visit all sections of the school  on her own initiative, which included the Mtdhen, securjU'y,  classrooms,    auto   shop, wood-  Generation  Revolution, such as that exemplified by recent non-racial  'riots' ��� in Chicago during the  Democratic convention, is the  natural extension of the two-  party system.

The classic definition  of a defamatory statement is,  "one that has a tendency to  injure the reputation of the person to whom it refers; wjhich  tends, that is to say, to lower  him in the estimation of right-  thinking members of society  generally and in particular to  cause him tos be regarded-i with  feelings of hatred, -contempt,  ridicule, fear, dislike, or dis-  esteem."  Publication is necessary. This  does not mean that the defamatory statement (or imputation,  as it is > called) must be published in the: usual meaning of the  word, but simply that it must  be made public. There must be  at least three parties: The defaming party, the person being  defamed and at least one other  person to whom the imputation  is spoken, written or somehow  communicated.  An insult or "verbal abuse"  (even if published) is not defamatory. Nothing can be done  about it.  A defamation may . be , by  means other than spoken or  written words. It may be by  some action.such as a gesture,  a picture or cartoon, a pantomime br an effigy.  There is generally no such  thing under our law as a class  defamation, such as all lawyers  are crooks, all Jews are dishonest, all preachers are hypocrites."  How much does the guilty  party have to pay? The amount  of damages could be any figure  from the cent up ���- depending  on how much the innocent, person has been harmed, the gross-  ness of the imputation, his station or prominence in life, the  amount of money he has lost in  his business, the extent of the  publication and all the surrounding circumstances.  There is an important distinction between libel and slander.  Libel is written defamation.  Slander is spoken defamation.  To obtain damages for slander,  for example, "John Doe is an  alcoholic," "Richard Roe beats  his wife and children," it would  be necessary for the plaintiff to  prove special damages, that is  that he actually lost a sum of  money as a result of the slan-  AT STUD  BOOK NOW FOR SPRING TO THESE BEAUTIFUL HORSES  Purebred Arabian Stallion  Shanfara Ferseyn Dappled Steel Grey A.H.C. 28104  SIRE: Rifala's Naseem ��� DAM: Jinnyls Ferda  3-4 Arab Golden Palomino  Shurab's Golden Sundancer  Limited to three bookings for his first year.

If, however, these words were  in the form of a libel, the plaintiff could be awarded general  damages, that is a - sum of  money though not actually having been out of pocket. If-the  plaintiff could prove special  damages as well so much the  better for him.  There are four important exceptions to the rule concerning  , slander: 1. An imputation of  having committed a crime, 2.  an imputation of having ia  .venereal disease, 3. an imputation of undhasitity against an  unmarried woman, or adultery  in the case of a married woman, and 4. an imputation in  the way of a person's business,  . trade or office, 7 for exartiple,  "the goods in John Doe's store  are shoddy," "Richard Roe, a  schoolteacher, is immoral concerning his students." In these  cases, the rule is the same as  for libel.  The defendant escapes; responsibility if he can prove -that  the statement he made is true,  but the burden is on himy to  prove it, not on the plaintiff to  disprove it. 7  Certain statements are privileged, that is they cannot, be  sued for, however defamatory  or untrue. Some of these are:  1. parliamentary privilege ���  anything said on the floor of  one of the houses of parliament  while it is in session. 2. judicial  privilege ��� anything said in  court during, a trial by the  judge, counsel or witnesses. 3.  a fair, accurate newspaper report of judicial proceedings.  This whole subject is very  complicated and there are  numerous exceptions to all the  above rules. For individual  problems, a lawyer should be  consulted.  Fly lying can  be studied  Fly tying courses, one at  Elphinstone school for seniors  and another at Gibsons Rod  and Gun club, for juniors are  planned in October by the club,  Roy Malyea, club president  announces.  Anyone interested in pistol  shooting can register their  names with Walt Nygren in  Gibsons. On the club's date pad  there is a Burns shoot set for  October 6.  A team or two interested in a  club shoot with .22 rifles between Gibsons and Sechelt clubs  should report to the secretary  Mr. Jones.

Hydro official warns.  P. A. Hoare, Hydro chief security officer, issued the warning as the hunting season in  the province approaches its  peak.  He said thoughtless target  shooting at ppwerlihes can bring  inconvenience and loss to Hydro  customers as well as serious  danger, and result in thousands  of dollars in annual expense to  the public. Such* vandalism reflects unfairly upon the majority of hunters, who are responsible and considerate, said Mr.  Hoare.  Powerline insulators shattered by bullets can cause a live  wire to fall; causing a hazardous situation. Inconvenient and  potentially disastrous power interruptions also can result.  Earlier this year, a gun user  severed the 60,000-volt power-  line between Vanderhoof and  Fort St. James, leaving people  and j businesses within a wide  area" without  power   for  more  rj.  than five hours during peak-  load evening hours.   ...  B.C. Hydro offers. a standing  reward of up to $250 for information for the identification  of any person causing 'wilful  ��� damage  to  a  powerline.

' Coast News, Sept. 26, 1968.       7  By Dr. ALFRED J. PRINCE  Dr. Prince is- associate  professor of sociology at  Eastern Washington State  College, where he directs  the undergraduate social  work program. He is an experienced family arid marriage counsellor arid has  done extensive research into  family problems.  Approximately one-fourth of  all marriages in the United  States at any given time, are  broken by the death of orte partner. It is generally the husband  who is - taken,: the wife who is  widowed. How many of these  widowed spouses remarry? How  successful are the remarriages?  In our society, a widowed person has a better chance of remarriage than a single person  has of getting married for the  first time. At age 30, for example, the chances of remarriage for a widowed woman are  60 in 100; for a single woman,  only 48 in 100. A widower's  chances of remarriage at age  30 are 92 in 100; a bachelor's  chances of marriage, only 67  in 100.'  The interval from widowhood  to remarriage will vary by sex  and age of the surviving partner. In one study, the average  length of time from widowhood  to remarriage was slightly over  three years for widowers and  over six years for widows.  In the United States, widowed  women exceed widowed men by  more than three to one. Almost  a half million wives in our country enter widowhood annually.  Many of these women have a  number of years ahead of them  when their mates die.- For example, approximately three women in four widowed at age  50 will live 20 years more. Even  for women widowed at 65, more  than half will live another 15  years.  For a number of widowed  persons, the contrast between  the loneliness of life without a  mate and * the companionship  and security of married life tips  the scales in favor of remarriage.  ' In our society, it is generally  more expected and socially approved for a widower to remarry than for a widow. Indeed,  if the widower is left with  young children, social pressure  to   remarry   is   often   great.  A  widowed woman, however, usually is not subject to the same  social pressure to find a husband. In fact, in some communities, she is expected to refrain  from remarriage put of respect  for her departed spouse.  In remarriage after widow-  hood, there are several areas  of potential difficulty. For one,  the widowed person may idealize the former spouse to such  an extent that no new mate can  measure up to the mental  image of the former partner.  Also, as one family specialist  writes, knowledge that the partner's first marriage was not  terminated voluntarily /may  imply to the second spouse that  if the first partner were still  alive, the mate would still be  with him and that he is thus  a second choice.  In addition,..former relatives  and friends may feel that the  new partner is an intruder. Too,  family members may compare  the new spouse to the former,  leading to problems for the second one.  Finally, the impact of remarriage on children must be considered.. When children are involved, they.; will need to adjust to a stepparent. Generally,  very young or grown-up children tend to assimilate a new  parent more easily than do adolescents.  The surviving parent must also radjust7tO; someone new in  the counter parental role. This  may be a problem for some individuals who first shared the  parent role with their first  spouse, then played a combined parental role when widowed,  and finally, through remarriage,  moved back into sharing the  parental roles with a new marriage, partner.  How successful are remarriages of trie widowed? Data  seem to indicate that they have  about the same probabilities of  success as; do first marriages.  One study * reported that two-  thirds of the widows and widowers rated their remarriages  very happy. One investigator  explained the success of remarriages after widowhood as follows: v.;  Widowed and then remarried  persons probably are highly  adaptable or they would riot  have entered their second marriages; if they are more adapt-  CROSSWORD    +   +   *    By A.

', Another explanation for the  success of remarriages is that  the widowed are likely to enter  second marriages with less romantic expectations. Their first  marriage .may have provided  the satisfaction of their romantic needs,. and the second marriage may be entered for more  rational reasons.  In remarriage of the widowed, what are the attitudes of  the new partners toward the  spouse's first marriage partner? One study found that 39  percent of the husbands and 47  percent of the wives felt friendly toward the spouse's deceas  ed first partner. Husbands were  more indifferent towards their  spouse's first mate than were  wives. Few of the new spouses  felt jealous or . resentful of the  spouse's first marriage partner.

What friend of Alex Harbinsori  has not been greeted by this  query and the humorous joke  that followed, throughout the 46  years of his life in this community? No one knew where he  collected his great supply ;pr  how he remembered them, but  they were limitless, a new and  dififerent one for each occasion.  Harbie, as he is affectionately  called, was born in Glasgow  and in Scotland learned his  trade, that of ships' joiner. With  a party of friends from1 the shipyards he came to America to  seek his fortune, stopping first  at New Orleans. From.1 there he  made his way to San Francisco  which was then recovering from  the great earthquake of 1906.  There he found violence and unrest which was not to his liking,  and he went on to Canada and  settled in Esquimalt.  In 1907 Louisa Ball, who was  born near Coventry, in England,  arrived in Victoria where she  met Hailbie, and in November of  1909 they were married in the  Had mi  Many Sunshine Coast residents mourn the'passing of Rev.  It. R. Morrison, particularly his  neighbors at Davds Bay and Wil-  san Creek. He was an active  member of St. John's United  church, Wilson Creek and attended services up to the Sunday before his death.  He was born in Yorkshire,  England, Nov. 12, 1885 and died  in Sechelt, Sept. 11. He leaves  his sisterin-law, Mrs. A. Chilton of Davis Bay also neices  and nephews in the United  States and England. He was a  past president of the B.C. Conference of the United Church  of Canada.  The funeral service was held  Sept. 18 from Harron's Chapel  of Chimes with burial in Moun-  tainview cemetery.. Ministers  who assisted in the service;  were Rev. W. Evan Fullerton,  Rev. W. Murray Cameron of  Gibsons, Rev. H. B. Wallace  and Rev. Whitehouse.  He was received as a candidate for the ministry in the  Weslyan Methodist church m  England and influenced by Dr,.  James Woodworth came to Canada in 1909 and served in the  mission fields of Saskatchewan  at Outlook, Belle Plaine and  other points. He matriculated  from Regina college and following a severe illness transferred  to British Columbia and studied  theology at Columbia college.  New Westminster.  After ordination his first  church was North Lonsdale.  Methodist church in North Vancouver and a church in West  Vancouver. He was instrument'-  al in the building of the North  Lonsdale Methodist church and  in West Vancouver organized  the first local Union church in  B C  During World War 1 he served overseas with the YMCA  and after the war. took over  a pastorate at Revelstoke and  from there moved to Grandview  church in Vancouver.  He challenged the men of that  church  to  build a  gymnasium  Royal     Naval     and     Garrison  church in Esq-timalt. y.    .  In 1922, the Hartoinsoris moved  to Roberts Creek and bought  property next door to Mrs. Har-  binson's hister, Mrs. Bill Roberts, on the waterfront. There  Harbie built a workshop and  worked as a carpenter in the  district. During depresion days  he started a taxi service which  he later sold to the "Klein  brothers.  For many years Mrs. Har-  binson worked for St. Aidan'-s  W.A. until an illness suspended  all outside activity.
