The mill uses 30,000,000 "gallons  of water daily. Y;  Mr. Sherman traced, the  growth. 6f the mill from the  days of Capt. Henry A. Mellon,  when it produced 20 tons a day  through to the present 500 tons  a, day production. In the first  "!'3years of the, life of the mill it  was actually operating . for. a-  bout two years under six owners. ^ '���;..-"7i, ."���    ���.'.. .."../.  The  present  mill  employs  a.  staff of 500* and has an annual  payroll of $3,600,000. Taxes paid  toy   the   mill   total   $470;000   of  which $380,000 is for School  costs and $90^000 in the local  improvements bracket.  He also aided that a process  control computer will be installed to improve production.  This will not effect the number  of employees, he said. Improvement in the baling process will  also be anade . enabling an increase from loading 800 tons a  day to aibout 4,000 tons in an  eight hour period.  " Mr.' Sherman explained the  present price-cost squeeze affecting alP pulp mills in B.C.  ; which has been brought on by  the increase in: the numlber of  mill-so He expected that the 1966  B. C. production of 3,200,000  tons would be doubled by 1972  but he was of theYdpihion' that  the future of pulp would show  improvement within two or  three years. {  Norman Rudolph introduced  '.���;Mr. Sherman and Charles Mandelkau offered the chamber's  thanks for his remarks.

Events are approaching a climax in the education argument  between the school fooard and a group of citizens who have decided to question the quality of education in our schools.  This group of citizens has called a public meeting for June 26  in Elphinstone school hall. Because of this the school board has  decided to drop further deliberation withfthe group.  To trace events as they occurred, in November, 1966, a community conference on education reviewed; educational needs of the  area. The school board asked for guidance from teachers and a  mandate from parents to enable it to iiriprove the quality of education.  A parents committee submitted to the school (board and municipal councils in April a torief, and to use their own words they  "have been patiently waiting to hear of the outcome inasmuch asY  a public meeting had been requested."  The brief contained nine suggestions ranging from transportation for kindergarten classes, to improved equipment and supplies, particularly in science and mathematics and also that the  school board call a public meeting.  In the meantime the district superintendent, Mr. GflTdoh  Johnston arranged a meeting between the parent group, (board  members and himself. From this meeting arose an arrangement  for a small parent committee to meet with, the school board education committee. A meeting was held May 16 when secondary  education and counselling were discussed. The parents' committee  reported the meeting interesting and fruitful. Their thoughts then  turned to future meetings to discuss kindergartens, primary education and parent-teacher relations. .7 7  Neither side presented overtures until early June when according to correspondence from the parent conanoattee'to vthe school  board, dated June 7, it thanked the education committee for the  meeting that had been held.  At the same meeting of the school board another letter from  the parents' committee dated June 7 ywas xeadt^ This letter contained 'four points. ?The|iirs|: was; that |the committee had wiitten  the department of education asking for the removal of Superintendent Gordon Johnston on the grounds that -school supervision  was unsatisfactory.  Point number two was that the occupational education program was grossly misleading. Point three maintained counselling  was nonexistent. Point four attacked school discipline arguing it  was bad, also that the rapport between teacher and pupil was unsatisfactory.  From information that has been supplied the Coast News by  the parents' committee it would appear that the majority of the  parents are associated with technical employees of the Canadian  Forest Products Port Melon pulp miE including the resident  manager of the mill.  In their June 6 statement to the Coast News which was also  received toy the school board, the statement contained this paragraph: "The brief itself originated from,a very concerned group  of parents who found that our Sunshine Coast school system is not  providing our children with a sound basic education on which they  can build their future, whatever their vocation they choose. It "was  concluded to be our responsibility to draw this shortcoming to the  attention of our school board and to insist that the system be improved."  Just what effect a public meeting will have on this argument  is up to this meeting. The Coast News has compiled this summation of what has developed in order to give background information on which to base one's thinking. How many will show an  interest in the issue is problematical.  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council moved to obtain information on costs for  an  initial  sewer  survey.  The Ferry Authority issued  a schedule to start June 19  with the first ferry leaving  Langdale at 6:30 a.m. and the  last at 11:50 p.m. Returning  the last ferry leaves Horseshoe  Bay at 11:30 p.m. There were  14   ferries  daily   each   way.  Gibsons taxpayers were informed on their tax notices the  street number of their home.  This was a start for getting  house numbering under way.  With the retirement of Canon  Alan Greene from parish duties,  Rev. J. B. Fergusson was appointed to take over the Sechelt Peninsula area of the  Anglican church.  10 YEARS AGO  Dr. John Playfair of St.  Mary's Hospital at Garden Bay  will leave on July 1 to fill an  appointment at the Minehead,  Somerset,  England hospital.  Jalopy racing flagman Lloyd  Bingley received a broken arm,  a torn cartilage and ligaments  while giving racers the green  flag at Sunday's races.  W. H. Payne, Conservative  MP for this federal constituency informed Gibsonites that  it was expected tenders for a  breakwater would be called by  July 1.  Hopkins Landing Community  club held a bee to renew the  roof of the Community hall.  Gibsons branch of the Ground  Observers Corps met at the  home of Mrs. C. Beacon to hear  F/O G. Moll explain the duties  for  members af  the  corps.  20 YEARS AGO  Dry weather has forced Gibsons council to place restrictions on garden sprinkling. Delay in delivery of piping has  forced council to forego plans  for reaching other water supplies.  Dr. L. A. Lome opened a  dental office at Roberts Creek.  Mrs. E. L. Wardil announced  the opening of a tea room and  guest house in Gibsons.  Residents of Selma Park area  donated $200 to the Fraser River Flood Relief fund.  By DR. ALFRED J. PRINCE  Dr. Prince is associate pro-'  fessor of sociology at Eastern  Washington State college,, where  he directs the .undergraduate  social .work program; He is an  experienced family ."'and marriage counselor and' has done  extensive research into family  problems.  How  destructive  _ire  martial5  arguments?..Are they invariably  damaging--q the marital borid?^jn��- Destructive- quari  It is an unusual marriage ij#Yth��  other  hand.^leave  marriage in;  which there'; is not some tension and 'disagreement. The  very intensity of the marriage^  relation invites conflict. Maritaf.  disputes 7 inevitably emerge as  two- 'individuals undertake.. a  common life.  Y The   causes   of   marital   discord  are   manifold.   Oftentimes  the   grievance   expressed  by   af  mate is merely a substitute for  with soft words or empty beer  bottles.  There is a tendency to regard all marital quarrels as destructive. :���' We should ��� distinguish, however, between productive and destructive conflict.  .'. Productive quarrels are limited and directed at issues, problems and conditions rather than  getting personal. They most  often lead to a new understandY  ing,;- Destructive    quarrels,    on  a relationship with a smaller sun-  total of assets than it had before. Destructive marital disputes are of the belittling .and  punishing variety...  Productive quarrels generally strengthen the. marriage  bond through a redefinition of  the situation causing the conflict. .. Destructive arguments  most   often   lead  to   alienation  pie or those whose real interest lie outside the home, or  those who, with or without a  day of reckoning, halbitually  bury their antagonism under  the  thick  cotton pad of polite  behavior; Y  The question arises: Would  not restrained discussion have  more adjustment value than  quarreling? Sometimes. The  danger is, however, that calm  discussion usually arrives only  at an intellectual solution and  fails to take into consideration  the   emotional  elements   in  the  conflict.   Quarreling   is   not   ail  ideal adjustment ' device,    but  there  are  times when  it  may  (Continued   on   Page   3)  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  Tues. 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Thurs. 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Sat. 3 p.m. to 5:'30 p.m.  Post Office Building Sechelt  Telephone  885-2333  something else which lies deep-Y  and early divorce,  er and is inexpressible; Y       Marital disputes can, and do,  Many  family   arguments   are^have    many    values.  For one,  N-   Richard   McKibbin  A   PERSONAL  INSURANCE   SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C.  triggered by trivialities ���- leaving the cap off the tooth paste, f  dropping cigar ashes around trie;  house, filing one's nails in the  presence of Yothers, serving  burned toast. As the quarrel  becomes more heated, however,  and both partners give vent'to  their annoyances,'��� the standard  phrase comes forth, And another thing,, and with it an exposure of inore serious problems creating tension in the  marriage.  Marital conflicts need not al-;��  ways, of course, denote physical  or veifoal, battle.; There7 are  some who can express the bitterest hatred by their emphasis  of the word darling. As one  family sociologist has aptly re";  marked, however, conflict is  conflict   whether   it   is   fought  they maintain emotional balr  ance through the release of tensions and resentment. Quarreling also shows each partner  how deeply the other feels on  certain issues, clearing the way  for the formulation of new solutions and routines.  It should not be concluded,  of course,, that quarreling is  a prerequisite to a satisfying  marital relationship. At the  same time, the mere absence  of marital disputes is no criterion of the successful quality  of a marriage. As one authority  writes:  Absence of quarrels is too  often regarded as a criterion  of successful marriage. Usually  it means little more than indifference��� a j superficial placidity attained by shallow peo-  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)   '  Copyright applied for  Certain misleading terms are  is  or   there  is   not,   and  there  no half way step.

There is a separa-'  tion agreement which is simply  a contract agreed' to by separate  ing spouses /which should always be entered into so that!  property may be divided and  all potential legal problems  settled. There is.also a judicial  separation which may be granted in a law suit and which is  similar to a dissolution pf marriage or divorce.  An alibi ��� As used to mean  any defence to a criminal  charge. The defence of alibi  means only that the accused  person is claiming that he was  not present at the time and  place where the crown says he  was when arid where the offence  charged took place.  Guilty��� As used to indicate  the guilt of - an accused person  before trial. This is meaningless as the law presumes the  opposite, that is that every accused person is innocent till  the contrary is proved. It has  only a moral or ethical meaning, but it has no legal meaning, before an accused is found  guilty by a court of. law.  Police court ��� The police do  not make legal decisions in  Canada ��� fortunately, although  they  do in many countries.  Attorney ��� As meaning lawyer. This is a term largely used in the U.S.A. and is not  generally used in Canada,  where it usually means a. person appointed as another's  agent in a document called a  power of attorney.  Court costs ��� In a civil trial.  There are none. Everyone benefits from a system of law and  justice and the expenses of running the courts paying judges'  salaries, Etc. Are paid out iof  general taxation. Parties to a  law suit are, however, required to pay the fees of process  servers, court recorders and a  fee of $10 -��� $20 to issue a summons.

Quarreling is also a better  adjustment device, writes one  family specialist, than brooding,  walking out, or running home  to mother or to a neighbor. It  is better than the - neuroses  Which may develop from constantly ignoring or repressing  hostility issues. It is better than  escaping in drink, in desertion,  in a romance outside the marriage. ;  Most couples cannot, at least  in the early years of their marriage, expect to live without  some arguments. An occasional  quarrel, however, is not likely  to weaken the marital relationship. One of the functions of  marriage, states one insightful  authority, is to weave a rope  of relationship strong enough to  hold each person at his worst.  Ideally, marital disputes tend  to become fewer and less violent as the marriage progresses : and . solutions to problems  are; established. The goal for  married couples is not, however, how to avoid arguments  but rather how to learn to argue  constructively.

TREES ARE A CROP  One of the greatest wastes  of wood in Canada is caused  by: a surplus of old trees. lithe long run, the highest average yield of wood from a forest  is obtained by cutting before  growth slows down due to old  age.  Dept. of Fisheries  Conversations With a number  of commercial trollers and several sport fishermen with a  fair measure of experience  have provided some interesting  observations oh the feeding behaviour of salmon that may be  worth passing along if only for  interest's sake. Some of the  more significant observations  that would influence f-shin$  success are mentioned in the  following:  " .1: Chinooks are most susceptible to a hook and line at daybreak and dusk probably because of a tendency to move inshore to feed during the failing  light. Low slack tides, whenever  they occur, tend to produce  secondary peaks in feeding activity. Heavy fish appear to ibe  predominately deep water foragers, rising during dim light  perhiafpis to maintain .'icpnitact  with their food supply. Towards  midrday, commerlciail^ trojllers  t ake most of their catch on  their deepest gear and trolling  depths for chinooks will range  down to 40 faithoms (240 feet)  and beyond.  2. Generally speaking, cohoes  feed shallop compared to;chinooks and will occupy the top  ten fathoms (60 feet). Because  of their tendency to surface  feeding they can be taken well  out from shore. Cohoes will  feed actively throughout the day  and frequently will take a lure  just as readily at high noon as  at the crack of dawn. An abundance of feed may soon satisfy  their appetites, however, hence  daybreak would foe the most  likely time  to  find  them  with  empty   bejlijes   looking for   a  breakfast opportunity.  Chinooks favor slow-trolled  gear if trolling is the preferred method, and the right lure  action or motion is essential in  order to ensure that the gear is  Paul  St. Pierre  Liberal  Candidate  COAST-CHILCOTIN  Affairs of great national interest are involved in this  election Ibut you have heard them discussed for several  weeks. We needn't deal with them in this space.  Let's look at Coast-Chilcotin. What's in store for this  riding?  In the long run, abundance. The boundaries of this riding enclose the best of B.C.  We have immense forest wealth, minerals and farm  and ranch lands.  We have sea, where, we are told, much of the world's  food may be produced by new techniques in the years to  come. *  We have wilderness, which -��is becoming increasingly  scarce and valuable on this continent.  We have well educated, skilled and adaptable people  to develop the region.  We shall see gas pipelines to Powell River, a major  deep sea port at Squamish and a tourist industry the size  of which is beyond anything we know.  I will not insult your intelligence by suggesting that  these things depend upon my election. But I dearly want to  play a part in these great years of challenge. I can serve  this riding.  We need port development on the coast,' the stimulus  of the ARDA plan in some areas, a national parks development within our boundaries, and a wild life refuge.   ���  In many area, Indians must be given new opportunities  and new challenges. The rights of the independent ranchers  and fishermen must (be protected. The legitimate demands  of Coast Chilcotin must be made known at Ottawa.  (Published  by  Coast-Chilcotin  Liberal  Association)  working well. Probably thev7  most effective commercial troll  gear for chinooks in the flasher-  herring strip combination followed by the -lasher-hoochy  (plastic squid) combination, unless the troller happens to be  an expert plug fisherman. The  same gear, except for the plugs,  works equally well for coho, but  as   a   general   rule  the   small  Gulf of Georgia qbho will prefer a less bulky hoochy or bait  than the;chihookju Cohoes also  prefer a fast-trolledY lure or  bait br one with rapid action.  Without changing trolling speed,  shortening the distance between  flasher and lure will speed up  the action. Increasing the bend  in the flasher: will achieve the  same effect but will add to the  drag on the line.  Color is all-important with  artificial lures and color preferences can change almost  hourly. Commercial boats ��� carry  a wide array of plugs, hoochies,  and spoons and are quick to  experiment when the Ibite  slackens off.  Small fish will take small  lures and will tend to shy away  ANDY     CAPP  Coast News, June 20, 1968.       3"  from anything bigger than a  mouthful. A gear study carried  out this season along the Vancouver Isarid shore between  Nanaimo and Comox found  coho toy4y2 pounds preferring  small spoons to large ones,  shunning sizeable plugs almost  entirely and taking.most readily  to hoochies used in combination  with flashers. Small coho hoochies outfished the bulkier chinook  hochies by a fair measure.

The family homesteaded In  the Roberts Creek area and the  children were educated in Gibsons schools. Later lie joined  the pulp mill staff at'Port Mellon in the days when Capt. Henry A. Mellon operated it back in  1919. From there he joined the  late Hector McDonald, logging.  In 1923 he married Ella Edwards in St. John's Presbyterian church, Vancouver, then  logged forv about two years in  the Twin Creeks area of the  Sunshine Coast. In 1925 they  moved to I Vancouver where  .eight7.'years later he joined the  staff of the Vancouver school  board where he remained for  25 years.  , ^He 7was 7an active memiber of  Vimy Lodge No. 97 AF and AM.

Then he was 16.  Mr. Hicks also served four  years as a member of Gibsons  council.

The funeral service was held  Saturday, June 15 in the family  chapel of Harvey . Funeral  Home, Gibsons with Rev. M.  Cameron officiating. Cremation  followed;  Mr. H. Klyne Headley, supervisor of music for School District No. 46 (Sechelt), has been  honoured toy the secretary of  state, Canada, through the office of the minister without  portfolio, Gerard Pelletier. The  following letter was received by  Mr.  Headley:  Dear Mr. Headley: It has recently come ��� to my attention  that your music, with text by  Miss Elizabeth Mackay, will be  the only - Canadian presentation  at the 8th Biennial Conference  of the International Society of  Education in Dijon j France.  As the minister with special  responsibilities for cultural affairs, I can tell you how very  pleased I was to hear of this  great accomplishment. I extend  to you and Miss Mackay my  sincere congratulations and  best wishes for continued success. Sincerely, Gerard Pelletier, Minister Without Portfolio.  Canada is also being honored.  Mr. Headley was commissioned  to write a composition for choir  and orchestra which will open  the International Society of  Music Educators' conference at  Dijon, France the evening of  July 2, 1068.  ; This is the eighth .Biennial  conference which brings together leading music educators,  the outstanding orchestras,  bands,, choirs and artists from  almost every country in the  world. This composition is built  around a jjoem especially written for this occasion by a very  telented ltfv-year-old Canadian  poetess, Elizabeth Mackay, the  daughter of Mr. A. M. Mackay  of Giibsons.  Mr. and Mrs. Headley leave  oh Saturday, June 22 for Brno,  Czechoslovakia for the stereo  tape recording of this bompo-  sition. This work is being performed by the famous Brnensky  Detsky Sbor Choir of Czechoslovakia directed by Dr. Fran-  tisek Lyseki This choir has given concerts in the major capitals of eastern and western  Europe as well as in Russia  and have many recordings to  its credit; the choir will journey  to Dijon for this performance.  This is the only composition  from Canada to foe performed.  Mr. Headley is well known as  a pianist-composer, organist  and conductor! Last suimmer he  shared a radio concert with  this famous choir as a piano  soloist. A stereo tape recording  was made of this concert which  will toe used as the first of a  series of record albums being  made in Boston, Massachusetts;  Mr. Headley's symphonic,  choral, chamber works and solo  works, as well as operas, have  been widely performed in Europe, the United States, South  America an_[ in Canada.  In Europe, it is traditional for  a director of music in university  or in public schools to be a performing artist. This school district has benefited through Mr.  Headley'is) resieardh in music  education in Czechoslovakia  and Hungary as well as in other  countries through the accumulation  of  music,  teaching  ma  terials  and  the   application of  up-to-date methods for the upgrading7 of music education in��  this district. Y  Elizabeth Mackay and Mr.  and Mrs. Headley will bepres-.  ent at  the  world  premiere  of  this new composition at Dijon.  This activity is part of a new  program involving - cultural exchange known as Children to  Children. The: hope is that the  foundations for world peace may  be established through children  by the exchange of. the best  that they are creating ��� not  only in this district Ibut throughout Canada��� especially with  children behin_. the Iron Curtain. This idea has been heartily endorsed by the communist  . officials: and many gifts of music, books and other materials  have been received from these  countries during the last.two  years.  The people of Canada are appreciative of the honour bestowed upon them' and it is  hoped that these efforts will  lead to better understanding.

CLUB  -4  Hello Friends:  i Iram Andy Widsten, your Social Credit representative for Coast-Chilcotin. I have sent  out letters to many, setting out my background. I know you want a good man from  here to represent you and I promise you if you vote Widsten,you will get the best'  in the West. ������^���[...-  My father, John Widsten, settled in the Bella Coola Valley in 1894. Many of you-would  know Andy Christensen from Anahim for the past 40 years. He's my cousin. I'm not.  a eity slicker ��� I've forked a horse with the best of them here in the Chilcotin.  I was horse wrangling with my cousin, Andy^ at Anahim in my younger days. I was  brought up on a ranch..I have my own ranch and raise cattle. This is the cattle country. I've also had my own logging outfit for about 15 years: Shearwaitea- Lumber  Company. I used to supply iy2 million F.B.M. per year to Alcan when they were constructing at Kitimat. Logging is our main industry so you can see I think I know the  score here and its not a matter of thinking with me. I am a doer.  I've also operated and owned a construction company.  That's the type of experience we want here for Ottawa. I am one of you. I have the  experience. I get things done;  and I'll get thiesm done for you.  Win with Widsten. Widsten is the pioneer name-I'm asking you to back.  The fighting men of the Chilcotins and Coast will be glad to know that I did not shirk  imy duty in the last war. I not only travelled up and down the coast on air sea; (rescue  and patrol boats as the master mariner, but I also was 2nd in command of Marline:  engineering for Western Air Command. I do not take a (back seat to anyone when  it comes to Coast-wise marine knowledge. I have ridden in the trough .and on the  crest with the best.  So you see I know the Coast too, as well as any mariner shoujd. I haven't tiime now  to go into my qualifications any further but I know you will put two and two togethejr  and say that's the guy that knows us best. He's not a blabbermouth. He's a doer.  He gets things done. With Widsten you will have the best in the West.  1. I will endeavor to reduce income tax lor Old Age Pensioners.  2. 1 will endeavor to increase exemptions for the ordinary wage earner on  income tax so that the ordinary wage earner gets a decent standard of  living.  3. I will endeavor to reduce the interest rates on Mortgage loans. They ought  to be cut out entirely for C.M.H.C. loans. How dare the Government charge  us for borrowing money. Let's get Canada out of the hbnds of the loan  sharks.  4. For the Cattlemen and for myself too I will try to reduce the freight rates  on feed and cattle.  5. If there are any problems with the Federal Government in logging I wlill  nail them down properly.  6. For the native people I will say this. I've worked with you all my life and  you've got my whole support on your problems. I intend to have and will  have the support of the British Columbia Government.  7. I stand to protect our coast on Fishing regulations and boundaries'. Will  work towards better boating facilities and navigational aids.  I will in summary do everything else in my power to give us good and fair govern-*  ment in Ottawa.  I ask you all to remember on June 25th to go to the polls, as many, as re>ad and hear  me today to go and tell your friends. VOTE WIDSTEN, the Wgger, the cattleman,  the mariner.

SK*>>>>>_C>>>>>>>_v>>^  MEALS  FOR  OLDER  PERSONS  The older person requires the  same basic foods recommended  since childhood, but the quantity differs and the form in  which his food is served requires  special  attention.  Meals should .include only  foods the older .person knows  he can digest easily, says the  federal health department publication, Healthful Eating. To  aid digestion and stimulate appetite it may be useful for him  to have a hot drink or light  soup before a meal. Also, smaller quantities eaten at, shorter  intervals than previously are  sometimes found desirable.  Because older people often  find it difficult to keep warm,  they find warm food comforting. Special attention should  also be paid to seasonings since  taste buds are not as sharp.  When chewing is difficult  through loss of teeth, food must  be adapted to meet this condition. To facilitate eating, semisolid foods can be used and the  fibre of fruits and vegetables  softened by cooking. Solid foods,  such as meats, may be chopped  if necessary. .  Although the older person  needs fewer calories because  body processes and physical activity slow down with advancing years, he should continue  to have adequate amounts of  protein and calcium-rich foods.  Milk, meat or fish, fruits, vegetables, and whole grain and enriched cereals should all be included to ensure an edequate  intake of protein, minerals and  vitamins.  The common tendency to  limit choice to a few foods  should be discouraged, the publication says.        . . ���   '  Name.  Street.  City   State.  ZIP Code.

Phone: 215-Y  Bella Coola  A. O. Widsten,  Bella Coola, B.C.  Q. "A neighfbor and I worked at the same job and received the same hourly rate of  pay. We are now both unem-  ployecl and receiving Unemployment insurance benefit. We are  both married with dependents,  but my benefit rate is higher  than his. I am glad it's me of  course,  but why?  Contributions to the fund,  and accordingly benefits, are  not based on the hourly rate  of pay you both received, but  on gross earnings within each  pay period. Although you' both  worked at the same rate, -you  worked longer hours and earned more than he did. So you  both paid more in unemployment insurance contributions  and are entitled to receive  more.  Q. I am holding down two  jobs at the same time. In the  first case I pay a contribution  of 94 cents, and in the second  a contribution of 72 cents. Why  must I pay two contributions if  the contribution paid in respect  of the first job already ensures  me maximum coverage?  You must pay an additional  contribution because, under the  Unemployment Insurance Act,  you are required to pay contributions with respect to all insurable employments whether  held concurrently or not. However, it is possible for you to  pay only one contribution if  your two employers enter into  a written agreement under  which one of them engages himself to pay the maximum contribution. A copy of this agreement, bearing the signature of.  both employees, must be forwarded to your local UIC office. Should you stop working  for one of these two employers, the additional contributions  paid may entitle you to a higher weekly benefit rate.  Speaking to a capacity crowd  in SqUamish on Wednesday  night, Hartley Dent; New Democratic candidate for Coast Chilcotin, said he will press the Indian Affairs branch to ; reveal  what action they plan to take  concerning erosion ;.Y.toX.;*:,jth'e.;  Squamish Indian reserve adjacent to the Squamish river. Already, it was revealed, much  valuable reserve land has been  lost to the river.  Thev matter has beco_ne more  urgent in the light of the policy  revealed by Mr. Ray Williston  and Mr. Jack Davis, that under  the new Fraser Valley flood  control agreement, the Tprovin-  cial government is now responsible for fload control on smaller B.C. rivers such as the  Squamish, Bella Coola and the  Mamquam.  Mr. Dent also urged the members of the crowd to press the  provincial government to reveal  the full nature of its commitment on the small rivers and  especially to state when dyking  work will get underway on the  Squamish   and  Bella   Coola  The N.D.P. candidate, in answer to a question on housing; stated that money for  loans to home buyers and build-  . ers must be made available by  the federal government at a  low irate of interest, even if  it means a system of 'conscripting capital.

TEACHERS1 FEDERATION  2235 Burrard Street,.Vancouver ��� 731-8121 CANADA '68: Election news  Coast News, June 20, 1968,  Stanfield majority predicted  OTTAWA ��� An Ottawa company specializing in public  opinion sampling has predicted a majority government  for the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.  In a copyrighted statement issued June 10, Public  Opinion Publishers Limited gave^ the Tories 138 of a  possible 264 seats after the June 25th balloting.      .  Their breakdown by provinces is as follows:  Social  P.C.  Lib.  N.D.P.  Creditistes   Credit  Ind.  Nfld         4  3  P.E.I.   ....     4  0  ���  N.S  11  -    0  N.B.         6  4  Que.   ,���   27  39  1  4                       3  Ont    38  40  10  >  Prairies ..   40  2  "2  . ,    1  B.C      6  6  9  2  N.W.T.  -  & Yukon ..     2  138  94  22  4             2         4  Total: 264 seats  The report shows substantial gains in Newfoundland  where the Progressive^Conservative Party was shut out  in the last general election.  The reversal is attributed to the high calibre of  candidates who have come forward for the PCs, combined with, widespread public disenchantment with Premier Smallwood. Smallwood supported Prime Minister  Trudeau for the" Liberal nomination, and more recently  suffered defections within.his own cabinet over management of the Newfoundland economy.  ' Prince Edward Island returned a full slate of four  federal members for the Progressive Conservatives^and  all indicators point to a repeat performance on June 25.  . The PCs are also expected to sweep Neva Scotia  where the Stanfield name and the Stanfield legend will  crush even Health Minister MacEachen.  New Brunswick, on the basis of these findings, will  return six Progressive Conservatives, capturing two  from the Grits.  The Prairie Provinces, solidly Conservative since  the Diefenbaker era began in 1957, show-signs of returning -Tories--in^-nearly- every riding. It", isr "predicted,  however, that the contest will be much closer in every  Prairie riding, and that the Tories will have to work  much harder to retain the stranglehold they now possess.  The Wheat Issue  It. appears that the biggest single factor working  against the Liberal government has been their failure to  move the massive quantities of wheat, or even convince  the people of the Prairies that they consider wheat sales  as a matter of life and death importance.  In British Columbia, where the Tories now hold  three seats, it appears they will double their standing.  This is due. once again to the high calibre of Conservative candidates, plus a distrust of the Liberals' use of  "Trudeaumania" as a means of avoiding the issues.  The election of a majority government for Robert  Stanfield depends however on substantial gains in both  Ontario and Quebec. In Ontario, the valued and committed assistance of Premier John Robarts, and the basic  Tory inclinations of the people, appear to guarantee a  return to greater Progressive Conservative representation in Ottawa.  Ivfr.Stanfield's highly successful tour through rural  Ontario took place after the sample was taken and will,  if anything, reinforce the earlier indications of substantial Tory gains. ;  A B^Mash In Quebec  The results forecast for Quebec confirm the worst  Liberal,fears. The sample bears out Grit concern that  their h__rd-lirie^ rigid attitude towards recognition of  French Canadian aspirations has backfired on them.  Strategists who earlier assured the Prime Minister  that Quebec would vote Liberal no matter what position  he took elsewherein Canada, are now upset by the  reaction. In addition, the nomination of several new and  well-known .Quebeckers at Progressive Conservative  nominating conventions has completely changed early  Liberal intentions. In rural areas, the Prime Minister's  promotion of changes in the Criminal Code relating to  homosexuality and'abortion is undoubtedly a factor in  the decline of his popularity.  The two northern territories should both find themselves in the Progressive Conservative fold after June 25.  All in all, the sample, which was taken in the last  days of May and early days of June, reveals not only a  Progressive Conservative majority government, but  pin-points the fact that the. Progressive Conservatives,  unlike the Liberals, survived their leadership contest  intact. The sample reveals, too, that the Prime Minister's emphasis on constitutional questions and "Trudeaumania" has left the electorate untouched and unimpressed.  , Robert Stanfield meets people, young and old. Increasingly  through the last weeks of May and the early part of June, crowds  have assembled wherever in Canada the Progressive Conservative  leader happened to be.  What  means ta  Many people believe that  the turning point of the  Stanfield campaign was one  specific incident ��� a question asked by, a young girl  in Wingham, Ont. on May  30.  Stanfield  on 'One  Canada9:  The Progressive Conservative Party .stands,  for One Country, One  Canada with a federal  system of government,  one country of "two  founding peoples", who  have been joined by Canadians of other cultures, t  The concept of "two  founding peoples" implies the right of both  English and French  speaking Canadians, to  maintain their language  and culture. The concept  underlines the fact that  the English and French  languages have, and  should have, s p e c i a 1  guarantees under the Canadian Constitution. It  does not detract in any  way from the right and  the opportunity of Canadians of other cultures to  play a full part in Canadian life.  I understand and appreciate the desire of  Quebec to have means of  preserving its identity as  a largely French speaking community in a continent of over 200 million'  English speaking North  Americans.  "What is your vision of  this country?" she asked.  Stanfield replied to her,  and expanded on his  thoughts the next day in a  speech in Sault Ste. Marie.  Stanfield said: "I have a  concept of Canada. This  concept of Canada involves  the land, our vast territorial  space, the oceans we confront, the breath-taking  sweep of a country that is  unique.  ''It is founded -on a harmonious confederation in  which all Canadians have a  place, in which all Canadians are afforded respect  and dignity, a home for a  people of two great languages, many cultures, who  together share a great; and  urgent desire to build a  great and happy nation.  "My roots are in this country. I have never conceived  of myself to be anything but  Canadian. I cherish Britain  but I know that we in Canada will pass Britain within  the next 20 years. I have affection for France, but I  know that we in Canada will  pass France within the next  20 years.  "I admire much in the  United States but I know  that in many of the ways  that count we shall be superior to the United States  within the next 20 years.  "Too, we don't have the  tradition of violence and  the belief in violent solutions to problems that  seems to prevail among a  good many Americans, I  think there is ��� we're not a  soft people��� but there is a  characteristic of gentleness  about Canada.  "Under my concept of  Canada, it is administered  by a government of compe-  t e n c e, even excellence,  which knows how to manage, how to correct, how to  plan, how to budget, how to  weigh among alternatives,  how to set priorities, how to  decide, how' to build and  how it can achieve.  "It is above all;_ Canada  that is a place for people, a  truly fulfilled Canadian people, in which the insecurity  of unemployment is  progressively eliminated;  in which the erosion of inflation is curtailed; in which  the critical shortages of the  services we heed ��� housing, education, health care  ��� are resolved as we  grow; in which an expanding economy provides the  foundation for a decent and  expanding life.  "A place, not of oppressive regulation, but of opportunity.  "A place, not of increasing conformity, but. of individuality.  "A place, not of thev common denominator, but of  the human being.  "A place, not of division  among Canadians, but of  affection for all Canadians.  "A place not like any other on this earth. A place  that is our own."  Stanfield and Diefenbaker together daring the PC  convention at Maple Leaf Gardens last year.  "As. long as he remains in the public life  of this country, I hope  and expect he will continue to be the outstanding defender of individual rights in Canada. So  long as I have anything  to do with the leadership  of this Party, the legacy  of compassion and humanity that he has left  us will be advanced."  Robert Stanfield  speaking about  John Diefenbaker.  "I join with all of you  in welcoming the new  leader of the Party ...  may you with wisdom  and forbearance and the  success you have had in  Nova Scotia, lend that  assistance in the next  election so that we in  Canada will have good  government of, by and  for the people."

The majority of its members are female: Wife  Mary, daughters Sarah, 26, Judy, 17, Miriam, 14, and  me other man of the family, Max, 21.  During the Stanfteld swing around the country,  many Canadians will have their first opportunity to  meet Mary- Stanfield. In contrast to the somewhat  quiet personality of her husband, here's a lady that's  brimming over with life. Warm, friendly, vivacious,  with a tremendous sense of humor* and a natural  liking for people, Mrs. Stanfield is making friends  from coast to coast.  But make no mistake. She's quick to announce  she's not a politician . . . and she's not running for  office. That's the job for the head of the family.  Mary Stanfield is no stranger to political life,  though.

Mrs. Stanfield sit with the children (from left) Sarah, Max, Judy and Mimi.  Mr. Stanfield's first wife was tragically killed in  . a car-accident in 1954. Ten years ago, the Progressive Conservative leader married Mary Hall, a long-  f   - time friend of the family and Godmother to the  youngest member, Miriam, fondly nicknamed Mimi.  Mary Stanfield takes her job of wife and mother  seriously and tries to keep the family's private life  as unaffected by the hullabaloo of politics as possible. At the same time, she's wise enough to know  that some changes are bound, to occur.  Mrs. Stanfield is proving a surprise to veteran  campaigners. But she's just doing what comes naturally. She puts on no airs; there's no forced gaiety or  phony friendliness. Reporters accompanying the  Stanfield team on tour have been captivated by her  bubbling personality. She has a youthful interest in  everything and everybody ���- and it's for real.

National Unity  We Progressive Conservatives stand for  ONE COUNTRY, ONE CANADA, with a  unique federal system of government ��� one  country of "two founding peoples" who have  been joined by Canadians of many other cultures. We believe that the concept of "two  founding peoples" means that the English and  French languages have, and should have,  special guarantees under the Canadian Constitution. This established principle does not  detract in any way from the'rights and the  opportunities afforded air Canadians to play  their full part in the nation's life. Wedo not  accept any suggestion of "two countries" or  "two Canadas".  ��� In any new constitutional proposals, .we believe  that the essential authority of the Federal Government must be preserved, including the responsibility  to give direction to the national economy.  ��� We understand and acknowledge the desire of  Quebec to have the means of preserving its identity  as a predominantly French speaking community in  a  continent  of over  200  million   English  speaking ���  people.  \  ��� At the continuing Constitutional Conference we  will strive with patience and understanding for a  better' definition of "ground rules" concerning the  participation of representatives from all our Provincial Governments in international conferences dealing  with matters such as education, which fall within provincial jurisdiction. Our guiding principle in this matter will be that we must'speak with one voice.  Canada's foreign policy must be one and indivisible.  National Development  We Progressive Conservatives are deeply  concerned with the wide disparity of opportunity presently existing among the five  major economic regions of Canada. Universal  welfare programs devised in Ottawa under  the Liberal administration have failed miserably to meet the particular economic challenges and difficulties of these different areas;  ��� Jri close consulation with : the governments of  these five regions���of which British Columbia forms  one���we will undertake immediate studies and .programs for manpower training and retraining, transportation improvement, industrial, agricultural and  resource, development. In this Province special emphasis will be given to the encouragement and development of secondary industry. All Canadians' will not  immediately enjoy equal prosperity and opportunity  from coast to coast, but we pledge ourselves to narrow the gap which has been widening at an alarming  rate under five years of Liberal indifference.  ��� Specifically in this western and coastal area we  will rapidly expand rail and port facilities, to handle  the ever increasing flow of mineral,and , agricultural  exports to. the important Pacific markets now developing. Canada is becoming a great Pacific trading  nation. Our two-way commerce with Japan, South  East Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Western South  America and the U.S. Pacific Coast must pass through  the port, rail and air terminal facilities of British  Columbia! Their handling and storage facilities must  be doubled and largely rebuilt during the coming  decade. This we will do. ���  ��� We will reinstitute a competent and aggressive  wheat sale policy with special emphasis on production of new high yield strains suited to current market conditions, long term contracts and reciprocal  trade agreements., Under the Liberals both gram and  livestock export has suffered. We will pursue an energetic livestock policy through the improvement of  pasture development programs and lower cost feed  grains.  ��� A Progressive Conservative Government would  waste no time.in revising our existing natural gas  policy with a view to increasing export prices of this  valuable resource, thereby lowering costs to the Canadian consumer. We will also give high priority to  accelerating the development of our mineral rich  North'Country through expansion of road and rail  facilities and by special inducements to those prepared to live and work in this exciting and challenging environment.  toward the end of a business expansion cycle.  Result: heavy price increases, reduced profits,  less capital investment, fewer jobs. By waiting to impose monetary restraints and; higher  taxes a full year or more after this recessive  trend had set in, the Liberals have merely  compounded the inflationary cycle their five-  year spending spree helped-to create.  ��� Ottawa has most of the machinery needed to  regulate the Canadian economy. In cooperation with  the Provinces it can establish productivity ^ goals to  which wage and profit increases must be related in  the interests of both Labour and Capital. Failure to  take such action in the fear that it may prove initially unpopular can result only in economic chaos and  an even more rapid erosion of everyone's savings.  ��� We do not expect to correct this grave inflationary crisis overnight. With the cooperation of responsible business, labour and financial leaders we, can  and will achieve a solution acceptable to the Canadian  People. This is what government exists' to do.  The Housing Crisis  No problem facing the average young  Canadian couple is more desperately frustrating than the search for adequate family accommodation at a price they can afford.  Under the Liberal administration, urban.land  costs have doubled. Single family dwelling  costs in British Columbia have risen by more  than 30 percent. Mortgage rates and rents  have . skyrocketed. Worse still: new housing  starts remain pitifully below the minimum  needed to accommodate our growing young  adult population. This' year over two and a  half million Canadians;will be between the  ages of .21 and 29. Their heed is urgent. It  must be a first priority of government. .;  agency to be known as the Canada Pollution Abatement Commission reporting to Parliament through  the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Resources. Its  first duty will be to write a National Pollution Abatement Code incorporating and coordinating programs  already in effect and assisting through research, technical help arid generous financial incentives in the  development of greatly improved standards of control at all levels, -w        ; -  WHAT WILL WE DO ABQUT IT?7!:  ��� As Mr. Stanfield has indicated, the Progressive  Conservative Party will establish .a Department of  Housing and Urban Affairs under a senior full-time  Cabinet Minister charged with attacking the crisis  on a "war-time" basis.  ��� In cooperation with Provincial and Municipal  Authorities, we will overhaul the Central Mortgage  & Housing Corporation, now completely out of touch  with'reality. Through this rejuvenated agency we will  stabilize mortgage rates on low and medium income  housing at a basic 6 percent. We will extend CMHC  Mortgage assistance to persons buying apartments  in cooperative or condominium buildings.  ��� To fight uncontrolled land speculation we will  establish Land Banks in cooperation with Provinces  and Municipalities. These would be given the necessary powers to acquire suitable residential land and  * hold it for subsequent development and private sale  in an orderly fashion at uninfiated prices.  ��� To ensure maintenance of regional responsibility,  we will assist in establishing provincial planning  'Task Forces' to provide research facilities which will  enable Provincial, Municipal, and Private bodies to  take maximum advantage of new mass production  building techniques and coordinate' their progress  without wasteful duplication.  ��� To assist the elderly, pensioners and those on  fixed and limited incomes, we will encourage a substantial increase in construction of garden type senior  citizen housing initiated by private bodies���industry  associations, labour unions, church organizations and  service clubs. Concurrently, we will subsidize purchase of existing older homes for. those whose incomes do not permit them to secure decent housing.  ��� As an immediate spur to housing starts and  lower construction costs, we will eliminate the present punitive 11 percent tax on residential building  materials and pledge ourselves never to reimpose a  levy of such a discriminating nature on the Canadian  People!  Realistically, the Commission would recognize the;  impossibility of consolidating the scores or Provin-  cial, Municipal and private industrial bodies now  engaged in one or "more aspects of this many-sided  problem. Through consultation with all; jurisdictions  concerned, it would seek to establish nationally acceptable deadlines for elimination of water, air and  industrial waste pollution and reinforce these target  dates by appropriate legislation which would make  non-compliance prohibitively costly to the confirmed  offender. v  Inflation  This is an immensely complex subject in-  . volving all levels of government together with  management and labour in every sector of  private industry. Over a period of time, income gains must reflect growth of national  productivity. Unfortunately the biggest rise  in wages always tends to occur explosively  Pollution  This is one of the gravest national problems facing Canada today���a problem which  the Liberal government has failed to tackle  in any realistic sense. Responsibility for pollution control is now divided among a multiplicity of Provicial, Municipal and industrial  bodies, often working at cross purposes with  poorly defined and sometimes conflicting  standards.  ��� A Progressive Conservative Government will give  immediate attention to the establishment of a federal  Social Justice  Canadian taxpayers are now supporting  -the most costly structure of social welfare  services relative to population of any country  in the world. Universal family allowances,  health and old age pensions together amount  to more than two billion dollars annually, to  which medicare must now be added in due  course.  While no government would willingly propose redistribution of these existing social. benefits, it is widely :  recognized that they are of limited value to our more ���  affluent citizens and tragically inadequate for the  seriously handicapped. If taxes are ever to be reduced,  future government assistance, must be based on real  /need. "v7'j  ��� At present the Liberal government is spending  an additional five hundred million dollars on a variety  of welfare programs over, and above those mentioned  previously. It is applying the same principle of uni--:  versality which is already straining our resources to  the breaking". point. By establishing a minimum in-7  ' come plan for those who^���by reason, .beyond their  control���are unable to care for themselves, we Pro-'-  gressive Conservatives believe we can improve the  quality of life for the truly unfortunate and effect  administrative efficiencies which will reduce overall  costs  to  the overburdened Canadian  taxpayer.  We  cannot accomplish this overnight but it will be a  firm objective of our administration.  Native Peoples  No aspect of social injustice is more cruel  and wasteful of human resources than the  present' government's, attitude toward the  half million Indian, Metis and Eskimo Peoples  to whom it has a responsibility. In 1966  nearly half of all Indian1 families earned, less  than one thousand dollars per year. The Indian mortality rate is three and a half times  the national average. Among pre-school children it is eight times the national average!  With these terrible statistics before them the Liberal government decided to save the magnificent sum  of twenty thousand dollars per ,year by reducing  health services to. Indians and Eskimos..  ��� As an immediate priority we will appoint a  trained task force to1 reorganize the Indian Affairs  Branch and infuse it. with a spirit of compassion and  the.means for development. Through continuing discussions with Provincial and Indian Community representatives, we will lay the groundwork for a completely new development program aimed at making  wider use of the services which could be made available with Provincial cooperation. We will upgrade  housing and educational opportunities and establish  an Indian College. We will recommend the creation  of Departments of Indian culture and research at  selected Canadian Universities. We will treat our  Native Peoples as the first class citizens they are.  Canada in the World  Canada's Foreign Policy has not changed  in principle since the immediate post war  years. It is overdue for a comprehensive review in the light of radically altered international conditions���not least of which is our  own diminished influence in world affairs.  ��� We Progressive Conservatives reaffirm our sup  port for the United Nations and its agencies. We  would, however, take the initiative of establishing a  UN committee to examine and assess .the shortcom  ings of the Charter and existing structure of this  world body and to submit recommendations to the  General Assembly.  "������ In keeping with the spirit of collective security  and consultation, we would propose to our NATO  partners that consideration be given to broadening  the concept of an Atlantic Alliance to include .greater  emphasis on trade and economic cooperation. With  today's highly developed air transport facilities it may  well be possible to deploy our NATO forces in this"  country and still be able to respond rapidly to any  threat in the European area or elsewhere. In examining this possibility we would wish also to work for  simultaneous decreases in the armed forces of both  the NATO nations and the Warsaw Pact Group and,  along with this, the ultimate elimination of nuclear  weapons in Europe.  ��� We endorse the principle of continental defense  but we share with the majority of Canadians a repug- -  nance for the contempt of Parliament demonstrated  recently by the Liberal government in renewing the.  NORAD Treaty for a further five year .period by  casual order-in-council. Canadians have a right to  know whether their tax dollars are being effectively  spent in maintaining bases and aircraft now generally regarded as obsolete. We will bring the treaty,  before the External Affairs Committee of the House  and negotiate necessary changes with the United  States in open forum sanctioned by the Canadian  People.  ��� We in this party continue to place a high value  on our membership in the'Commonwealth of Nations  and the splendid traditions of Parliamentary Democracy to which, through this evolving connection, we  are heirs. We would encourage the activities of the  Commonwealth Secretariat headed by a distinguished  Canadian", and increase our technical, scientific and  " industrial assistance to the under-developed nations  o�� this unique inter-racial body.  ��� We bel'ave that Canada has a firm obligation to  share its material advantages, scientific, industrial  and managerial skills with developing nations  throughout the world. As our economy expands we  would aim to.increase the percentage of our gross'  national product devoted to these ends: To be effective, our aid should be concentrated in areas where  its impact can be really useful and.where long term  relationships of mutual advantage can be developed.  One such area would logicaly be the West Indies.  Believing that no advantage is to be gained by continued refusal to recognize the Peopled Republic of  China, we would enter into discussions with officials  of this country with a view to exchanging diplomatic  representatives at the earliest possible date.  What We Want For Canada  In summary, the Progressive Conservative  Party believes that every citizen should have  a reasonable standard of living, adequate  food, clothing and shelter, education to the  . level of his or her ability and the best medical  care that science can provide. We believe it  is the duty of government to establish and  maintain an economic environment in which  the individual can'attain these things for himself. Whenever through circumstances beyond  his control���disability, sickness, age or economic conditions���he is tunable to do so, the  state must provide for him.  Robert Stanfield has committed the" Progressive Conservative Party to the goals .of  a decent life and equal opportunity for all  Canadians. It is no longer acceptable in this  affluent age for Canadian children to be  raised in a virtual prison of poverty, exposed  to bad health and bad habits with no incentive to learn and no opportunity to live happy  and productive lives. And it is no longer acceptable for Canadians who are old or severely handicapped or chronically ill to exist  on a pittance that destroys their dignity and"  -hackles them to the whims of chariy.  What do we want from Canada? In a  speech at Fort William Mr. Stanfield summed  up his own conviction^ in these deeply moving  words: "This nation" he said "is above all a  place for people���a truly fulfilled Canadian  people. A place not of oppressive regulation,  but of opportunity. A place not of increasing  conformity, but of individuality. A place not  of the common denominator, but of the  human being. A place not pf division among  Canadians, but of affection for all Canadians.  A place not like any other on this earth-���-A  place that is our very own."  IN COAST CHILCOTIN  HOPKIN.

Editor: So frequently in this  election campaign we- a re advised by the leaders of the liberal and Conservative'parties  and (their candidates to vote  only for members of these two  parties. They proceed to argue  that we must have a majority  government, if it is to Ibe. effective���votes cast for so-  called splinter parties they say  are wasted votes.  This sort of electioneering  strikes me as. being not only  impertinent and mischievous,  but in fact an affront to the  intelligence of the voters. Moreover, I believe their premises  are so completely wrong. During my close observation of the  political scene over this past  half century I have found that  the im'ost fruitful parliaments,  judged by the good legislation  they have produced, have been  those parliaments where the  Government held a minority of  the total seats in the country,  or where it held a precarious  majority which it must husband  carefully. A safe government  has consistently exploited its  security by a policy of relative  inactivity and drift. We have  this pointed up so clearly in  the recent administration of  John Diefenbaker. Over 200 government members crowded in  beside their leader. And how  barren was that "episode!"  The presence of an intelligent, aggressive smaller group  on the government's flank to  probe, urge and finally support  good legislation has Ibeen our  most effective guarantee of  better government. The largest  of the minority groups in the  house, the CCF - NDP has consistently been comprised of intelligent, responsible persons  who have pressed for good laws.  This group has never pursued  a   purely   obstructionist  policy.  The official opposition, whether Liberal or Conservative has  not so clear a record on this  score. We have at times witnessed from them obstructive  tactics to embarrass the government or to bring about its  fall. Considering these things,  I would say, may the voters of  Canada continue to send to Ottawa a large minority group of  able and vocal persons who  will spearhead the cause of better government.���Joseph Wick-  lund.  When the factual information  is given in detail surely no person of reasonable intelligence  will pay much attention to this  letter that gives nothing factual  at all, it is all invective hurled  at any and all who do not agree  with the writer of the letter.  It makes me think of what  the great Shakespeare said in  one of his immortal plays: Upon what meat doth this our Caesar feed that he has grown so  great. Then we turn to the good  book, the Bibie and read St.  Matthew, Chapter 7, verses 1  and 2: Judge not that ye be not  judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be  julged. i  I am much older and have  had a very, much wider experience and have been active in  politics for about 70 years and  have never seen such wild invective printed in any paper,  pamphlet or what have you,  which is based on nothing specific. In the early days of this  century what was known as a  roaribaek was co_n<mon in politics. A statement, not necessarily true was published at the  last minute so that the person  it was aimed at had no chance  or time for rebuttal. Are we  starting this system again?  B. L.

Where fish were  Week Ending June* 9  (Dept. of Fisheries)  Coho fishing was fair during  f he week at Pender Harbor  Fearney Point and Francis  Point. A few fish, including the  odd good-sized chinook, were  also taken in Bargain Harf-or  and in Narrows Arm of Sechelt  Inlet.''Of 14 boats checked ;n  the Inlet on Saturday and Sunday, 10 had no fish aboard  while the others had a total of  5 chinook averaging 10 lbs. Mr.  and Mrs. Bill Scarff of Holland,  Manitoba left Pender Harbor  with 30 salmon for 10 days  fishing. Largest was an 18 lb.  8 oz. chinook taken while trolling off Fearney Point on Thursday.  Egmont produced good results  Saturday .morning but returns  fell off Sunday. A boat check  Saturday a.m. saw 12 of 21  boats with a total of 11 chinook  (average 14 bs.) and 7 coho  (average 4 bs.). A repeat check  next morning sampled 22 boats,  found 10 with no catch and  counted 6 chinook and 7 coho.  Largest chinook caught in the  area was a 34 pounder while  an Art Jackson reeled in one  of 30 pounds.  The Fishery officer for the  northern portion of the Sunshine Coast reports that the  deep waters in the Saltery Bay-  Telescope Pass areas yielded  fair catches of quite large  chinook during the past week.  Coho to over 4 lbs. were found  in the vicinity of Harwood Island and Okeover Arm where  herring with flashers and green  and white hootchies proved to  ibe the most effective lures.  The fishery officer's report  mentions that fishing improved  in lower Howe Sound waters  after a slow start early in the  week. The word from upper  Howe Sound is that catches  -continue to be poor.
