' The explosion occurred while  the craft was berthed at the refuelling dock. Immediate action  after the fire started resulted  in the craft being towed into  shallow- water near: the. beach.  It was .here that members of  Gibsons fire department tried to  get the "blaze under control.  pboard to get quicker action in  ..obtaining a supply, of water for  .; .the area.

The editor of this paper gave  me a Coast News dated Jan. 18  1967 in which was reproduced, a  photograph of Gold River's  modern sewage disposal unit. A  comprehensive article accompanied the photograph on page  2 of the newspaper giving interesting particulars of this plant.  I quote from this article ���  "The. treatment system built at  a cost of about $200,000 was  designed by Associated Engineering Services Ltd. of Vancouver, consultants on Municipal  services. 7. The plant will foe  capable of serving a town of  about 10,000.'. . The plant will  prevent pollution of the Gold  River."  My reason for again making  public these facts is that many  people in Gibsons and surroundings   are  apprehensive  regar-  reasoning for objecting to "a  sanitary sewer system discharging treated sewage into  the sea.'' ..:  There is nothing complicated  about the reasoning of any of  us who use the beaches or go  swimming or fish the r/a'ers  about the, proposed dumping  area. We do not want Gibsons  sewage, in fact we do not want  our own sewage or anyone  else's, polluting and fouling thr  ocean. Nothing could foe plainer  to understand or more reasonable. We want and need clean  beaches for all.  I could just as well say that  I am at a loss to understand  the reasoning behind the proposed plan for Gibsons to go to  the expense of pumping sewage  some distance out of the village  and up grade when it would be  far easier to dump it in the bay  area where sewage has been  'discharged for some years.

The decision to take  this action came at a public meeting attended by approximately  100 persons. The show of hands left no doubt as to the feeling of  the meeting when 772 voted for seeking Regional District board  help. One lone voter was against it. Y  Regional district representatives explained to the ratepayers  there were two ways to go about seeking water. One was by operating as a water district controlled by the water rights branch  which would demand a 100 percent approval before the department  would take action. This would involve a tremendous amount of  work in contacting every land-holder and would mean that every  owner of each piece of property^ woMd\have to be traced and his  ���opinion sought, a job that would take considerable time and  expense.  The other method would be to let the Regional board take over  the job, handle the entire planning operation, provide necessary  referenda and complete the preliminary work at less expense.  Under the referendum method a majority of 60 percent would be  sufficient ��� something which could foe achieved, more readily.  The Bullock ���West Howe Sound water report from the water  rights branch became available to this area in June of last year.  While it covered a considerable area, it did not deal with Roberts  Creek. Mr. Bullock said he had data on Roberts Greek but had not  'been asked for it.  There is one point Roberts Creek officials should bear in mind  if they intend to do things in a legal fashion. Tne chairman and  other speakers referred to the Roberts Creek areaY as being on  Sechelt Peninsula. If this attitude is'maintained any TlegaLpapers  with which they may become involved had better foe double  checked to see that the proper geographic location is mentioned.  The Sunshine Coast Regional District's maps of Sechelt Peninsula  do not include Roiberts Creek.7 YY  Restraint would help!;;^^%'  The present move towards censorship of violence in TV shows  and movies has brought home to some people that censorship is a  necessary facet of life, regardless of whether we do or do hot  like it. Y  When things get too far in one direction some restraint is  needed and censorship is a restraining influenceV Conitrol or restraint, call it what you will, is the foundation of our every action  or thought and the sooner this is realised the better will be our  way of life.  Assassination and destructive rioting in the United States has  forought home this lesson to the land where inhibitions -were  frowned on as a retarding influence. r  Restraint in offering the public 7a summation of events in our  communications media is needed. This ^does not mean that we  should enter a pol'lyanna period. There is a dignity in life which  must be observed. There is little being shown in circles which have  in its hands the power of guiding our daily life to the best advantage. The sordid is having its way at present: Examples of a better  way of life are apparently taboo because of the lack of sensationalism. But is sensation our norma way of life.  ,   COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  Dr. Prince is associate  professor of sociology ait  Eastern Washington State  College, where he directs  the - undergraduate social  work program. He is an experienced family arid marriage counsellor and.has  done extensive research,into  family problems.  By Dr. ALFRED J. PRINCE  How successful are interfaith  marriages? What are the major  areas of conflict in such unions?  How do couples resolve their  Tdifferences over religion? How  successful are childless mixed  marriages?  Our study of several hundred  cross - religion marriages  throughout  the   country  sought  answers to these questions.  Couples in our sample had  been married from six months  to 46 years with an average of  10 years and five months. Approximately 10 percent had  ibeeri married 20 years or more.  -Less than six percent were married under two years.  Our study of cross-religion  marriages also included ., the  study of interdenominational  marriages or marriages between members of Protestant  groups. Length of marriage for  couples in this group was approximately the same as for the  interfaith marriage group.  Approximately one-third:; of  the interfaith marriages and 25  percent of the interdenominational marriages were childless.  Of the childless couples more  than one-third had been married less than two years.

Benjamin     Morgan,      music  leacher   at   Ephinstone   school  and also Gibsons United Church  choir leader, was honored with  several farewell parties.

(By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  Question: What is equity?  What is an equitable.:, right?  What is a. court of equity^ What  does it mean in a contract when  you -read, in law arid equity?  Answer: Equity is parjYof our  law. It is a branch of the law.  Like many institutions'''-' that  have survived "down through  the centuriesY it can only Ibe  -lnderstoodJh its present form  if one knows a little bit about  its history. ,  Equity had  its  origin  during  the   reign   of  Edward I  which  lasted  from  1272  to   1307.   The  lawYat   that   time   (since   the  Nornaan   conquest,   1066),   was  strictly   administered.    If   one  did riot adhere to the letter of  a contract, one was out of luck  in   a   court   of   common   law.  Moreover,      powerful      parties  could, by bribing or intimidating  jurors,   sheriffs  and  other officials,    twist    the    system    of  justice to their own advantage.  In   cases   where   the   courts  were at fault, parties petitioned  the   King   or   his   council   and  these were.-referred to an official   known   as   the   Chancellor  whose duty it was to administer  a restraint on rigid legal rules  and prevent injustices. Naturally such petitions became popular and the Chancellor came to  exercise the function of a judge.  Chancery, or equity, became an  independent   court   under   Edward   II's    reign    (1307-1327).  In 1616 the court of chancery  was  recognized  as  a court of  equal status with other courts.  Records   of   decisions   were  kept as in the other courts and  these were used as a guide. A  whole new body of law ��� that  is equity ��� grew up over the  centuries and courts of common  law and courts of equity operated side by side. Each court  evolved its own complex rules  and procedures and the disadvantages of such a system foe-^  came   apparent.   In   1875,   the  administration of the two courts  were fused and the courts enforced both the rules of common law and equity at the same  time.    Canadian    courts    have  been fortunate to have inherited  the  English  legal  system  and  have followed suit.  Equity is used in disputes  arising out of such matters as  mortgages, trusts, wills, etc.  Where there is a conflict between a rule of law and a rule  of ^equity the rule is that equity  is to prevail.  married with each other far  more frequently than with Jews.  Jews have intermarried with  Protestants more frequently  than with Catholics. These findings are in agreement with  those reported in a recent census survey Of iriterfaith marriages in the United States;  The ; cumulative effect of  mixed marriages is evident by  the fact that more than half the  spouses were themselves Y offspring Yipf 7 ^ religious  marriage^  With wwhom do individuals  contemplating a mixed religious  imarriage discuss this profoleiri?  Persons consulted most of ten by  both spouses; were, iri76rder:  mother;. father; clergyman; .  sibling; friend; and relative.  More than 90 percent of the  spouses had discussed their  cross-religion marriage with  one   or   more   of   the   persons  listed. '77:7 ������ Y. '���'  Approximately 75 percent of  the couples in the iriterfaith  marriage group and 85 percent  in the interdenominational  group were married by a7 religious official.  7  More than half the men and  approximately three-fifths of  women reported they attended  church three times a month or  more before-marriage.  The question arises: What  effect does marrying outside  one's faith have on church attendance after marriage? Four  out of five spouses who contracted interfaith marriages reported their ^church attendance  after marriage .remained the  same or increased.. Protestant  men who contracted interdenominational marriages showed  the highest percentage increase  v Surprisingly, Protestant women  in this same group reported the  highest percentage decrease in  church attendance after  marriage.  When people of different religious faiths marry there are  few alternatives open to them  for resolving their differences  over religion, the spouses may  maintain their own faith; one  .,spouse may adopt the faith of  the f other; ;i^ ,-���  adopt a new religion acceptable  to both of them; or they may  follow no religion.  Iri more than 65 percent of  the interfaith . marriages, the  spouses maintained their own  faithYOur data thus eorroiberate  the findings of other studies  which show that couples in  interfaith marriages' attempt to  resolve their differences' over  religion most often by each  spouse maintaining, his or her  ' own religious faith.  On the other hand, couples  who contracted iriterdenomina- -  tional marriages attempted to  resolve their religious differences most often iby. one spouse  adopting the faith of the other.  In interdenominational marriages either spouse was equally likely to change to the faith  of the other. In interfaith marriages, however, the wife  changed religion more than  twice as often as did the husband,   r  Most conversions7 to the faith  of the partner took place before  the   end   of the   first   year  of  marriage.  Galley one ^ ��  Studies show that children in  mixed religious marriages tend  to follow the -faith of the  mother. In our study, approximately 55 percent of the children followed the faith of the  mother,' 40 percent followed the  faith of the father, arid approximately five percent adopted a  religion different from that of  both parents or had no religious  affiliation.  Our data also showed that  when one parent, regardless of  sex, was Catholic or Jewish,  the children were usually  reared in the Catholic or Jew*  ish faith, respectively.  More than half the spouses  who contracted interfaith marriages and approximately 70  percent of those in the interde-  non_inationa_ mariiiage group  were either very much satisfied  or entirely satisfied with their  marriage. Less than 10 percent  reported any degree of dissatisfaction.  No relationship was found between the degree of satisfaction  with the marriage and the religious cdihbinait-on of the  who resolved their differences  over fellgiori Iby one spouse a-  dopting the faith of the other,  couple.  Furthermore, couples without  children were not significantly  more satisfied with their marriage than were couples with  children.

YWfoat are the major areas of  conflict in cross-religion marriages? Sources of friction most  often reported toy spouses in  both interfaith and interdenominational marriages were, in  order: conflict over religion the  children will follow; conflict  over church attendance; conflict over interference of inlaws in religious matters; and  conflict over size of family or  spacing. of children. Most couples.; reported they had experienced one or more of the problems listed.  Three out of five couples reported their major area of conflict was friction oyer the religion the children would follow.  Our research thus supports the  findings of other studies which  show that the chief source of  friction iri mixed religious marriages centers on the religious  training of children.  It was interesting to note that  couples without children reported this also as one of their  major areas of conflict. The  problem was reported second in  frequency foy this group; the  first was conflict over church  attendance.  Do individuals who cross religious lines and marry regret  their decision? Given a second  chance would they, marry outside the faith a second time?  "'Less than 10 percent reported  they would not. The remainder  were undecided.  Auxiliary adds  to membership  Pender.

Gibsons and Burquitlam  FUNNEL  WEB  WEAVERS  Even the most careful of observers seldom realize what an  immense number of spider-  webs are spun upon the grass  in the fields. But, occasionally  in the early mornings they  spring into view as the dew  condenses on them. Then we  see the grass covered by an  almost continuous carpet of  silk. Most of the webs we see  at this time are of the form  commonly known as funnel-  webs. They consist of a concave sheet of silk, with a funnel-shaped tube at one side and  numerous lines extending in all  directions to the supporting  spears of grass. The tube serves'  as a hiding for the owner of  the web. From this retreat the  spider runs out on the upper  surface of the web to sieze any  insect that alights upon it. The  tubes open below, near the  roots of the grass so the spider  can escape from it if a too  formidable insect enters the  web.

Four years ago at the age of  76 Alex Znotin finally sold his  boat and retired from the sea  and.fishing which had been his  life for 39 years along the B.C.  coast:  He had always been able to  draw arid had filled spare moments at sea and during wintry  months on shore by sketching  and carving. Later he experimented with oils.  Naturally he paints what he  knows and loves foesty ships and  the sea in all its moods and a  lifetime experience of observation and understanding of  the ocean is reflected in his  large canvasses.  The gallery is open five days  each week, Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The  painting Garden Bay foy Kay  Wells donated to raise funds for  the gallely was won by Mayor  and Mrs. Fred Feeney at the  July 1 draw.  VORACIOUS MOUSE  For many years when foresters planted tree seeds on  logged over land few seeds  would germinate and grow.  T"he foresters wondered why.  After close study they found  that a single white - footed  mouse can. eat up to 200 seeds  in one night. At this rate many  years and much seed would (be  lost before a forest could become well established. To protect the seed and change the  eating ha/bits. of hungry rodents,  a silver-grey mouse repellent  coating is placed on the seed  before helicopter or nursery  seeding. Foresters are alert for  signs of animal damage and  work closely with ��ame departments and sportsmens groups  to help maintain animal populations in balance with food  supplies.  WALTERS - WOOD  Patricia Ann Wood, only  daughter of Mr. arid Mrs. John  Wood chose the anniversary  date of her parents' wedding  to exchange vows with Henry  Walters,    son    of   Mrs.    Rosa  Walters. :   ,  The ceremony was performed  by the Rev. Dennis Harris in  the historic little chulch of St.  John the Divine, Maple Ridge.  The simplicity of the lovely  bride's white peau de soie  gown with scooped neckline  and three-quarter length lily  point sleeves was further enhanced by a full length floating  nylon panel. Her three tiered  veil of silk illusion was caught  by a small spray of lily of the  valley, while her cascading buo-  quet of yellow rose buds and  stephanotis was accented by'  entwining yellow tulle and ivy.  For the ceremony, the bride  wore her grandmother's hand-  engraved gold  bracelet.  Karen Hansen, the bride's  only attendant, was charming  in a turquoise ribboned lace  sheath. The colors of her  tulled marguerite colonial bou-  guet were reiflfected in her hair  as single blossoms formed her  headdress.  Best man was Grant Me-  Dougal and ushers were Leo  and Jack Learry, all of Vancouver.  Following the nuptials, * a  family friend, Rev. Dennis  Harris, acted as master of  ceremonies and uncle of the  (bride, Mr, Douglas Dawes of  Kamloops proposed a toast to  his neice.  For her honeymoon the bride ,  chose   a   two-piece   beige  lace  suit with tangerine accessbries  and a corsage  of orange rose  buds anl feathered carnations.  Among a number of close  friends and relations attending  were Const. Barry Wood and  Mrs. Wood, Kevin and Wendy;  Mrs. Florence Narifield; Mr.  and Mrs. Doug Daws and  Dennis; Miss Dorothy Narfield;  Mrs; Ricky McSharte anl Terri;  Mr. and Mrs. Don Montgomery  and family;Y_vfiss ?<Jean Robert-^  son; Mr7 and Mrs. Bernie McLeod; Mrs. Sam Hansen and  Christine.

Klyne Headley  My narrative is not one of a  tourist. Just as a painter must  from time to time stand away  from his painting in order to  gain a greater perspective, it is  also true that the traveller far  removed from home gains a  greater perspective of his own  nation's   culture.  Czechoslovakia has come into the news arid the people  proudly speak of the Czech  spring, which is another way of  saying there is a new beginning.  A contemporary author in the  GSSR, Vaclov Pelisek, has  written "We know that people  everywhere have a lot in common. It is our fate to live together in this stormy century���  in spite of everything, for the  time being, that divides us; we  love many of the same values."  This is my second visit to  Czechoslovakia. So that we  may appraise the cultural situation of Canada and our own  community in particular, it is  necessary for us to^ establish  certain standards or means of  evaluation.  Much has been written in the  last few years against nationalism; the argument being that  we are forced to think internationally or even globally. My  observation of the people of the  GSSR has revealed a strong  nationalistic spirit which has  unified their nation and made  it possible for them to survive  wars occupation by foreign  peoples, atrocities, privations,  and economic problems. I have  observed, in the OSSR, people  who have not lost their sense of  humor,, who have not succumbed to adversities; but who  have, on the contrary, resisted  and are now emerging victorious. Their kindness, generosity  and warm hospitality serve as  reminders that spiritual and  social values make a solid  foundation   for   any   nation   or.  CRASH INQUEST  The inquest into the death of  two   flyers in   a  crash  in   the.  Clowhom area  of Sechelt Inlet  will  take   place   at   Sechelt   on  July 31.  Sandy Mann, 23, student pilot  and Bill -Palmer, flying instructor were in a Cessna plane  when it crashed during a two-  hour training flight starting at  about 2 p.m. July 15. Searchers  found the wreckage in a canyon at the head of Clowhom  lake, north of Sechelt. An armed Forces Labrador plane spotted the wreckage.  }Bqi    uiqiiA.   7/.}iunuiuioo  YSub  nation.  From ancient Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia, three provinces of Czechoslovakia, has  come a very rich musical heritage. It has been said that  every Czech believes he is a  musician and he sings or plays  "rn instrument to prove it.  In the city of Brno, the capital of Moravia, there is a modern opera house which is filled  to the capacity of 3000 persons  for every performance. There  are numerous exhibitions of art  in galleries. There are many  productions of live theatre.  Every Sunday morning during the season the opera house  is filled with children brought  in from outlying districts by  bus free of charge. No expense  is spared for the education and  cultural development of the  children.  Since the occupation by the  Germans during two wars and  the 'liberation' by Soviet Russia, the communist government  has tried to suppress religion.  However, the beautiful 13th  century cathedrals and other  churches in Brno are the living  proof that the spiritual values  that caused their creation cannot be stamped out. It has been  reported to me that many of  the young people are now turning to, the church.  The inroads of some of the  questionable influences of Wes:  tern society, such as the beat  music, long hair on boys, and  mini skirts, are everywhere in  evidence in the large cities.  The rush of traffic at great  speed might lead a visitor to  believe that there is little difference   between    these    cities  and Ours. However, there are  differences which are worth  noting.  Families  do  things   together.  Hiking,   going   on   picnics,   attending concerts, theatre, opera  ��� these are a few examples of  family activities.  It is not;my purpose to make  value judgments concerning  beat music, long hair and mini  skirts, but rather to show that  the world has shrunken and  ideas and social patterns from  the West have rapidly spread  to the East.  To repeat; a visitor to these  countries cannot escape the effects of the deep feeling expressed through the arts and  through social and recreational  pursuits.  It is not always possible or  advisable to import cultural  characteristics and practices or  try to superimpose these upon  another community. On the  other hand, is it not worth considering: either we are going to  change according to a long  evolutionary process, or it is  possible to exercise controls  through education. Through  science and technology man  has learned how to exercise  controls. Control over, nature is  science; control over society  leads to the humanities. Our  failure so far involves control  over self. 7-  We had better get on with  the job of learning more about  the control of self or the natural processes of evolution may  be diverted by revolution.  The   final  question   must   be  answered    by    the   individual:  How do  these ideas effect me  and   my   responsibility   to   my  family and to my community?

Born in Vancouver, Carol has  spent much of her life in the  country. Today, despite a time-  consuming interest in the lives  of her three teen-age children,  Carol continues to spend much  of her leisure time in the outdoors.  '.British Columbia has the  the most beautiful scenery in  /the world," she says without  hesitation. "And a person has  more freedom of movement  than in other parts Of Canada."  During the past few weeks,  of course, Carol has had a  major and special interest in  her life, travelling through the  CoastjCh_lcotin country she  knows so well with her husband  Paul, the Liberal candidate in  the June 25 federal election.  Cheering their dad on from  home, where they are attending  to high school studies, are the  three  St.  Pierre  children.  Eldest is Paul Robert who,  at the age of 17, plans to enter  the University of B. C. in September. Hard work in school  has won Paul a bursary to further his education, but during  his spare time he puts the  books to one side and has produced some interesting effects  as  the  lighting director for  a  More Insurance  for fishboafs  Insurance protection provided  for commercial fishing boats  under the federally sponsored  Fishermen's Indemnity plan  will be extended to coyer craft  havihg a maximum appraised  value of $25,000. The new extension, announced by Fisheries  minister H.J. Robichaud, will 7  become effective - June 15. It  will supersede the existing in- ���������.%  I suraible.maximum    limit    of  modern band.  The two St. Pierre girls are  both . athletes and scholars.  Michelle, 16, is a member of  her high school basketball and  " track teams, and Suzanne, 13,  recently travelled to Montreal  with the B.C. synchronized  i, swim team. ���.['���'  One soon has the feeling, in  talking with Carol St. Pierre,  that she has a deep sentimental  attachment for the one room  log cabin they built at Square  Lake about 11 years ago. Her  husband, her father and she  discovered the spot while wandering around the Chilcotin  country.  ' 'As soon as we found it we  knew this was our hideaway.  Paul knew that this was where  he would want to do a lot of  his writing."  So they set to and hewed  their own four mile road into  the lake, found an Indian who  knew how to use an axe, and  built their unpretentious but  cosy cabin. Carol spent summers there with the youngsters.  Among many incidents she  recalled one which she will  always remember. A forest fire  started at the end of the lake  one day. As night closed in, it  took on raging proportions and,  with Paul away, Carol had the  full responsibility of the  children.  In this dry belt country she  knew that with encouraging  wind, the fire could easily  sweep in upon them. Realizing  from the" location of the fire  that their get away might also  be cut off, she loaded the jeep  with necessities ready to drive  it out into the shallow water of  ��he lake. She also readied the  lioat so that the family could be  loaded into it and rowed out to  safe anchor. Since animals  seek water in the face of a  forest fire, this was the logical  thing to do.  (Setting the clock that night  for hourly awakening, she  watched the progress of the  fire. But she did not need to  imake use of the precautionary  measures. The fire veered off  in 7 another   directioh   and   the  Tom Smith of Big Cleefc helped  ais build it."  Ottawa could well be in line,  for a log cabin hewn from the  forests of the Laurentians.  jOn the status of women,  Carol felt it was almost too  (broad a subject for anything  but   detailed  discussion.  "I was disappointed with the  average newspaper reports on  the Commission," shesaid. "It  was treated much too superficially."  She sees the whole . thing  boiled down to three main issues ��� -discrimination against  women in the business world,  legal rights of women and the  providing . of day nurseries  which would allow, women who  need, to work and want to work  the opportunity to do so.  "Right here in Williams  Lake," Carol observed,, "are  women who find a small town  offers greater equality for their  ita'ents. In a city as nowhere  else in the world, does a woman  ��� or a man, for that matter -���  know the feeling of being completely isolated."  These are words that help us  see Carol as a young matron of  loomposite personality, since on  one hand, she is a home lover,  yet on the other, she holds a  pilot's licence.. She hasn't done  much flying lately but she  hopes to do more in the future.  "Paul took his Pilot's licence  and decided It would be a good  thing for me too. I got my  ticket at the Vancouver International Airport before the  training school was moved out  to Pitt Meadows.  "Guess who was my first  passenger?" she asked. "My  mother-in-law.  A good sport."  PR is the scholar in. the  family. He loves chess and was  champion chess player at Ar-  gyle Secondary school last  year. He also likes to operate  a" light show which produces by  complicated means, psychedelic color patterns for a local  North Shore musical group,  The Frantics.  Suzanne loves swimming.  She went to Montreal in March  jwith the B;C. synchronized  swimming team to compete for  the Canadian championship.  They came second.  Michelle, besides being an all  round athlete, is the organizer  of the family: She should be  working on the campaign. Only  last Saturday her school relay  teaum came second in the B. C.  ' provincials--  '."I'm keen on swimming too,"  said Carol. "I instruct in swimming quite often."  .'Paul; of course, loves hunting  and fishing, and he used to  train dogs.  "Gardening and sewing are  two of my pet; occupations, and  bird watching and rock  hounding."  Mrs. St. Pierre was enthusiastic about her attempts to  transplant wild flowers of B. C  to her North Vancouver  garden.  " Penstemon, a roadside  plants daes very weaj;," she.  said, "but alpine flowers are a  real challenge. They just exist.  The touchy white Ladyslipper  can travel across Canada in an  envelope, but it rebels at taking  root in a garden."  *^^^*^^w^*^#*.  f  suraible ; ^maximum    lamix    ^>^ifc^ famlilyiih 4he Square Lake  $15,000; The miniim_m appraisel^;. ^jj, --^g^ l&tlimharmed.

Other amendments to regulations involve premium rates.  The premium of one percent  on fishing craft whose home  ports are in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland or British Columbia  will be raised to one-and-a-half  percent of the appraised value.  Boats eligible for this rate must  have an appraised value from  $250 to $15,000, The one-half per  cent premium increase on fishing boats in the two Atlantic  provinces and British Columbia  was necessitated because of the  high loss ratio in those areas.  A two percent premium will  apply to all fishing boats with  an appraised value of over  $15,000 and up to the $25,000  limit. This means that the owner of any fishing boat having an  appraised value of $15,000 plus  will pay two percent of the full  appraised value and not just  the amount in excess of $15,000.  The fishermen's Indemnity  plan agency has insured nearly  8,000 boats in Canada having a  total appraised value of 35 million dollars ��� over W million  dollars in British Columbia.

If it is warm enough (at least  74 degrees) sunbaths can be  started when he is three weeks  old. Don't give a sunbath just  after bathing or feeding; wait  an hour. Start very gradually,  two minutes on front and back,  with the baby wearing a shirt,  diaper and cotton bonnet with  a brim to protect his eyes. Increase by one minute a7 day  for a week, then start all-over  again, this time, without the  shirt. Increase the.periods until  baby is staying in the' sun ten.  to fifteen minutes a day.  If balby's skin gets red,; or  if he has a slight rise in temperature, discontinue the sun-  baths for a couple of days. In  very hot weather, have the .  sunbaths before ten in the morning and after three in the afternoon. Fair-skinned babies are  much more sensitive to the  sun's rays than dark-skinned  children.

I would also like to  publicly thank - Dr. Hardwick;  who gave of his own time to be  an impartial yet interested;,  chairman for the meeting. His ,  insistence that anyone who  wished to speak be given an  opportunity well fulfilled bur  ���hopes for the conduct of the  meeting.  The total attendance was disappointing but good compared  to many educational meetings.  It is sad that most meetings  suffer this way.  We were most disappointed  that our school board did not  see fit to accept our invitation  to speak; however, we thank  Mr. Bill Malcolm from Pender  Harbor for coming all theYway  to speak as an individual trustee. We were also pleased to  pee Mrs. Kjison and Mr. Hough  join the aJaience after a previous meeting: We hope the  school board will be represented officially next '\tin_eY  ';!?;   Y  Our notes  from  the meeting  indicate   several  .points   either"  not   covered   by    or   differing  from  the  press reports:  1. More people are talking  about our efforts. Maybe they  are even considering the problems in the educational system.  2. The prime vocal counter  to our presentation was made  toy a group of teachers; Yet  their points were mainly; (a)  that everything is okay; -that  our system is no better ; or  worse than others:' Yet "this: is  why our group is operating ���-  we disagree: They provided no  answers ���' and that our tactics .  were wrong.

Eric Thomson  (Continued from Page 7)  800 yards from the beach, and  to find that beyond it there had  been deposited several .new-  acres of sand, not quite dry at  low  tile. r-  On shore there/ were a few  little birds, and no squirrel, but  Willie filled the bird bath and  scattered the sad-looking contents of several boxes of breakfast food which had stood on  the stove all winter. That  brought customers, first one or  two, and then as the boys got  the word, the little fellows  came in flocks for bath and  Veafcfast,    and   eventually    a  squirrel came, travelling wid-  dershins, unusual, as they gen��  erally travel clockwise, and we  watched him try a cprn flake,  to find it giood, .and then sit up  for. a good tuck in.  Our radio brought us the bells  and choir service from the  ' Church of the 'Nativity at  Bethlehem, and it was a matter  for thought that these came on  the instant -from an old land,  --��� half-way round: the world, where  jarring sects and warring races  kept ^neasy truce, to a peaceful, remote island, still a strangerytb religious observance.  -These   thoughts   had   hardly  registered    before    we     were  talking with  a man from Calgary who had flown out to locate  some  lots  which he  had  bought somewhere near us and,  .    following   him,   we  had   three  young people from Lethbridge,  who had found their lot in the  primeval    bush;     This    island  Y,seems to have a fascination for,  our Alberta neighbours, and for  that   matter, YI   was   born   in  ��� Calgary. y ,-..>'���  Monday brought back the  kindly west wind, sunshine and  shadow, brought out the fish-  boats for the opening day of  commercial salmon fishing, the  birds for bath and breakfast,  the migrating brant by the  thousand for the sea grass on...  the tide flats, anl an osprey, to'-':.  the   eagle's  look-out  tree.  We were listening to the Courtenay radio,  and the weatherman said that there would be  snow.  We heard; a door bang,  and  another  voice  said   "It  is  snowing   now".   We   could   see  from where we were that there  was a massive snow storm for  miles     along    the    Vancouver  . Island    shore,    and.   when    it  stopped Tfchose Island hills were,  winter white. Tuesday was the'  same, and there was a marked  inclination to do nothing, so the 7  three of us wandered along to  the meadows,  which" are  treeless acres of grass topping  a  hundred - foot    sand    cliff"   for  about a mile, on'the side of the  island   which   looks   over   the  Gulf of Georgia and, high on'a  windy plain,  af ter: listening   to  the Y radio ���    recouhtihg'  - how  heavily it was raining -' in Van- =  couver, one sifter the other weY  fell asleep in the sun.    i  That  evening  we visited   the  one   permanent   resident,   who  lived near the hotel. He gave <a ���.,  vivid account of the big storm,  which ;7was a combination of a  bad  south - easter and  a  very  high   tide.   These combined. to  shave off the bank by shoving  the thousands  of drift logs as  scrapers  along; the shore.  The  tide, backed by the wind rose  .  until the sea was level with the  top of the.bank,' and out in the ���  water huge logs went right up  in the air/ making a fearsome  \ crashing  noise   to   add  to the  noise of thewind.;   \'���}.   ,  . Glen had inquired about clam  chowder, so we prospected for  clams.    Off   shore    there    are  countless    thousands     of     the  finest oysters, but we had not  so far been interested in clams.  They were there, too, in quantity and it took no time for us  to collect half a pailful. Ingre  dients were suggested by all  three of us, celery, bacon,, tomato soup all went into the pot  with the shelled clams, and the  ' result was surpassing, and  there was enough for a second  day's feed, which was even  better. '���-������ "  Thursday gave us a scare.  We had by then to consider  getting back to the mainland  next day, and, ;.���that morning  there was a'violent storm with  rain and hail added. It seemed  too strong to last, and sure  enough, in the afternoon Ythe  wind turned suddenly back to  the west, which brought sun-'  shine, blue skies and quiet  waters. Also it brought transportation.  One of our neighbours had  brought his family up in a fast  power-boat on the Easter weekend, and by reason of the storm  had been obliged to leave his  boat on the islands As he was  coming up to take his family  home, his wife asked Willie to  run the boat over to Lund and  leave it1 there so that her husband could use it on arrival to  cross to the island. So all we  had to do was put our things dn  our neighbour's boat next day  and be on our way.  That afternoon, when the sun  came out and everything looked  and smelt beautiful, I took my  bagpipes and got on the road.  It was one of those times when  they fell into tune right away  and played themselves.  I had  no clear idea as to where I was  going,  and I came out of my  trance  to   see   the   lady   from  Saskatchewan  laughing   at   me  from the steps of her cottage.  Her fears had proved  groundless, and she too had fallen in  love with the place. What she  wanted now was for the two of  us tp stand at the end of the  road where we had landed, and  she had a photograph taken of  me   playing  to   her,   with   the  background of blue sea towards  Lund, and the miles and miles  of snow-clad mountains back of  that. ' Our departure was  easy  an a fair and sunny morning.  This   time   /it   was   with  .the  knowledge     that     things    had  changed.   No  longer   were   we  the only pebbles on our beach,  for   there   wasn't   a   morningY  afternoon   Or  evening   that  we  didn't see people Yalong the  shbrei or hear Ithem al6__gythe  road, or following the amiable  custom of the country, come in  to see us and what, we were  doing, and children were all  oyer the place. One other evidence of the passing of the old  order "was the presence of a  brand-new plastic B. G. Telephone booth at the road June-,  tion back of us, the same kind  of knee-length model as there  is opposite the Hudson!s Bay  store in Vancouver. And, where  the word Telephone was on  either side of the booth, vandals had already  shot out the  letter o as a bull's eye. That  Yelearly indicated the end! of .'&'.-  chapter, ; no more isolation, no  more respect for. the property  of others. Y.-Y...  \ Savary will always be . an  enchanted island, but whatever  pleasures it will- have for us  and ours in the future, it 'has  been a wonderful experience to  have had the privilege of coming ashore on thiat Easter morning 8 years ago to a primeval  wilderness . and to have had  some part, under the kindly eye  of the owner, of creating there  a thing of beauty and a joy  forever.

By calling at Hopkins to  collect me and a carton of  ���delicacies provided by the wife,  mother and grandmother of the  travellers to eke out iron  rations on a far-off island, that  allowed the ferry traffic to get  ahead of us by. ten minutes, so  we had the unusual experience  of not seeing another car, coming or going, right through to  Earl's Cove.  What did strike us on that  green and gold Sunshine Coast  morning was the development  which had taken place all along  its 52 miles during the last year.  The Powell River Queen took  all the waiting cars, trucks and  campers. What a difference  from the deep-bosomed Quillay-  ute which wallowed comfortably across to Saltery Bay while  its passengers had time to order  something to eat in the galley,  the orders being shouted  through a hole in the wall to  two Chinese administrators who  handled them on top of a large  old-fashioned range. Y  Today, in the plastic, but  comfortable, up-to-the-minute  cafeteria of the present Queen  there were ^avaiHable viands  which could only be. described  as preconceived to fit in with  the shortened crossing time.  On the other side, the road to  Powell River showed as many  changes    over   the   year,    and  when we came to Westview  Willie turned uphill to the Shopping Centre, where we had  lunch in the brand-new Inn,  which provided a very good  meal in comfortable surroundings, quite up to anything in  Vancouver.  We got to Lund, the end of  the road, to find the car park  full, the water taxis all busy  and a colorful picture of boats,  .cars and people relaxed in the  sun on what is going to be our  Riviera. We met an island  neighbour who had arranged for  a fish boat to take him and his  party across to our end of the  island, and we got in on this.  The young owner of the boat  had married a Savary Island  girl and was on his way to visit  her, between trips.  One of our passengers was a  lady from Saskatchewan, and it  so happened that she and I  landed in the cuddy. She had  arrived in Vancouver from her  prairie home the day before,  and her only boating experience  to date had been one session in  a row-boat on a slough near  Regina. She wasn't happy at  the prospect of crossing the 6  miles of Pacific Ocean facing  her. However, down in the cabin, she became womanly curious about the house-keeping  arrangements on board, and I  showed her the various things  that pulled out from the walls,  and what was behind them.  Meanwhile George, the automatic pilot, spun round over  our heads and the heavy fish-  boat plowed right along. Finally,  .curiosity satisfied, my lady  came back to earth, and in a  worried tone asked where we  were. I looked out of a port-  FRANK   E.   DECKER,   d.o.s.

This time there was a  high tide, and no waves, and  the people on shore had a large  aluminum boat ready to take1 us  and our gear- ashore, a very  different landing from that of  other years. My lady's last  words to me were that she' didn't know how she was going to  spend the week-end without  television; ���'"  We took what we couio carry,  left the rest for engineer transport, one man one wheelbarrow,  later, and arrived home at 3  p.m. a record. There had been  a bad storm at New Year's,  tout no damage had happened to  the house, although there were  trees down all over the end of  the island. While Willie got the  shutters off, I got the wheelbarrow and went back to pick  up what we had left on the other  side.  The air hummed with the zing  of power-saws as our neighbours sawed themselves into or  out of their cottages through the  deadfalls left toy that storm.  The woods were full of girls  and their chatter, and with the  blue sky and sea, and the golden sunshine patching the trees,  a pagan Greek would have expected Pan to have been there  too. He was, but wasn't then in  business, as his pipes were un-  /der our cartons of groceries on  the wheel barrow. Some days  later he made up for it.  One of those girls earnestly  asked me if I had seen Stevie.  I thought that she was trying  some new approach on me, but  on taking a second look at her,  I noticed that she was distraught, and concluded that she  was a big sister looking for a  kid brother. She was, in fact,  the young wife of our boatman,  and what had happened to  Stevie was that he and two  other two-year olds had been  playing on the beach. The  other two came to their cottage  saying that they had left Stevie  still playing there. When it  came time to round up Stevie,  he had disappeared. The evening star, which brings all  things home, didn't bring Stevie,  xand searchers found him at twilight one mile along the beach,  -tired, scared-and~bungry,Ybut  safe.  Glen and I beavered our way  out from the house to the road,  cutting the windfalls as we  came to them. These tall, thin  firs had practically no roots,  and what roots they had were  rotten. Willie by then had dinner ready for us, Bristol cream  sherry, a chicken dinner with  strawberries and cream to  follow, served with all the appointments of a gracious home.  I cast my mind back to our  first evening meal on our first  Easter. We" had it in the open,  in a howling gale with a pounding sea alongside, and in  gathering darkness, where behind a wind-fl>reak of fir branches Willie contrived to cook  two super steaks on an oil-  burning Coleman, the flames  from which blew to leeward  rather like a barbecue at the  entrance    to   Dante's   Inferno.  This year, for the first time,  there was no construction work  to be done. After eight years the  house was finished from turret  "to foundation stone, except for  the stone facing on the chimney, and it was well on its way  to completion, so we had time  to relax and to see what other  people had been doing.  That night a storm blew up  and a grim dawn showed us a  south-easter tearing past  beyond the backwater at the  end of the island. After breakfast we surveyed our beach and  found that the big storm of last  winter had not only cleared off  many years' accumulation of  logs, but had also cut quite a  few feet off the foreshore, but  a recent high tide had deposited, right end up, two fine fir  butts of nice fire-place length.  These were split at once and  kept us going for most of the  stay.  We took a look at the other  side of the island where the  hotel is, as we had heard that it  had been damaged in that  storm. There had been a similar erosion, and some trees had  been uprooted, but that was all.  By Sunday the storm had  blown itself out. and on a very  low tide we were able to walk  out almost to Eagle Rock, about  (Continued da Pag* 8) 10      Coast News, July 25, 1968.  Boating monthly  iiow available  .��������������� British Columbia's first complete boating monthly, 'Pacific  Yachting Journal' is now available. Published in Vancouver,  the new magazine is on sale  at newstands and {marinas  throughout the province.  The need for Pacific Yachting  Journal is emphasised by the  inadequate coverage that has  been given to this area by existing North American boating  monthlies.  So that the magazine should  speak authoritively on all Pacific North Western matters, an  editor with great local knowledge was sought. Don Tyrell,  Vancouver journalist and boating correspondent was appointed. Don will maintain a high  calibre of editorial content serving impartially and constructively the best interests of the  readers and the local (boating  industry.  1st "5 and 10       In  After nearly; a quarter-century in business, Saria:Fladager  has sold his 'ladies' wear store  in Gibsons to Mr. and Mrs.  Ken Goddard.  7   ���        7  In that -time tie opened the  first 5 and 710 cent store on the  Sunshine Coast; and later his  ladies' wear under the Thriftee  Stores name. He moved the  ladies wear into the block now  occupied by it andthe Bank of  Montreal and Y^nverted the  store under the-Medical clinic  offices into a dry goods store  selling yard goods, bedding and  sewing machines. Later the  Simpson - Sears agency was  added.  On selling the Thriftee stores  Mr. and Mrs. Fladager recall  the struggle they had to; make  the first store a successYThere  were plenty of days when their  total -sales - amounted to $5.  While Sam was completing the  house, Edith ran the store and  things looked discouraging. How  ever, faith in the area kept  them     going     until     success  started showing up.  In the last 15 years Mr.  Fladager has had the same  faithful  employees, Mrs.. Ethel  Bingley, Mrs. Jean Duncan and  Mrs. Ann Triggs and his wife  Edith. To these he gives his  heartfelt thanks. Without faithful help no one can succeed,  Mr. Fladager says. To his hundreds of friends and customers  on the Sunshine Coast Mr.  Fladager is forever grateful.  DATE INTERPRETATION  The simple matter of a date  may cause confusion when a  Canadian citizen tries to cross  a foreign border, the B.C.. Automobile Association reports in  urging adherence to World  Health Organization requirements on the way dates should  be recorded on health certificates, such as vaccination records. It should be written as  5 July 1968, for example. Confusion can arise if the date is  recorded as 7/5/68, which can  be interpreted as May 7,  1968.  John Gilligan, Vancouver,  caught speeding - in- a radar  x area was fined $200 and suspension of his driving licence  for six months when charged  with driving while impaired.  John Charles Wray and Ron  Anthony Brackett of Giibsons  charged with attempting to  steal a battery from a parked  car were fined $100 each.  Dean   Hobson,   charged   with  creating a disturbance at Cozy  Corner   in   Gibsons   and   using  abusive    language    was    fined  .$100.  John Popham charged with  -assault following an argument  over parking at the ferry slip  was dismissed.  THOSE   SPARROWS!
