SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published  at Gibsons,   B.C.  ��� :   Volume 21 YYY7Y  Number 42,  October 31,  1968.  10c per copy  Gibsons to double size  v Plans were made at Tuesday  night's council meeting in Gibsons for the publication of the  bylaw'covering the expansion of  the village of Gibsons.  By resolution Giibsons municipal council intends to seek  expansion of the village by including the area from Sunshine  Coast Highway to the east side  of Reid road and southerly to  Park road then east to the  waterfront.  Aldermen discussed the proposal , at Tuesday night's council meeting when it was-learned  that there would- be an increase  in population, amounting to 250  which would bring Gibsons population up to about the 1,70C  mark.  Read road boundary will run  down the centre of the road  with one part being part of  Gibsons and the other, rural  route. jThis1 situation occurs on  the Sunshine Coast Highway  now with one side 'being outside  the village. ...

The financial statement  showedf$616 in the bank,starting the year, receipts of $2,781  and. disbursments of $3., 030 leaving a bank balance of $367 to  startvthe, next;^year.7 ;77'77 ���  Mr. North, noting that the  south end of the area Gibsons  arid Sechelt had shown little  interest in .the work of the; association, said he intended to  visit both areas shortly.

President Bye rioted in his report there was a lack of interest  by business men and that mote!  and hotel men were not cooperating. He urged that cooperationrwith the association  would result in returns for  businessmen. 7  Fre<&  Doupe   urged  that pull  outs shoulld be arranged at  points on the highway to ; allow  slow cars1 to pull to one side  and allow ferry traffic tq pull  ahead.  He was of the opinion that the  roads department should co-operate in tourist matters and that  there should have been some  signs available along the highway pointing to the direction in  which spectators, could find  theiryway^iywhgre the whales  :were7di_playbd.Y7': :7-;7-:.\:-;..v-> ,.,.

He reported tourism was much better  in Powell River area .but could  >be improved much more so with  a better ferry system over to  the island.  Mr. Doupe suggested that if  Agamemnon channel was  bridged to Colville Island then  ^Nelson Island, it could result in  a 20 minute ferry shuttle service  to Saltery Bay. Government  minister and others will receive  letters on this.  One of the projects at the]  Gibsons Eleihentiary School InY  dian Days was the above teepee,]  with students who-took, part ��������� iri��  the event. Indian Days was the?  culmination of six week's wbrkj  and study of the Indians by;  Mrs. Sfcidtaiore's fifth year ciassj  and the sixth year classes of Mr!  McKee and Mr. Ayres.

Clark, provincial manager of  British Columbia Chambers of  Commerce informed members  of Gibsoris and District chamber  at a dinner meeting Monday  night at Cedars Inn. Close to  50 persons, attended.  Mr. Clark, who has done a  considerable amount of work  among jchanibers. in- Alberta  spoke mainly on what some  towns had done. For instance,  the town of Nanton, noting that  water was a necessity for passing motorists, established a  tap on the highway and now the  tap has becoine a tourist talking  point with soirie of the water  bottled being sold. The Nanton  tap has become a tourist  attraction.        *."Y'  A service club at Whitecourt  obtained from townfoik colored  slides of picturesque spots in  the town and area. They received hundreds but whittled  them down to about 39 or 40  which were shown by volunteer  service club men, in various  tourist camping spots. This resulted, he said, in the comimuni-  ty keeping the tourists within  the area for a longer period than  otherwise by pointing other  spots they could visit.  What was > needed was a pepping up of community spirit and  a wider field of co-operation.  Mr. Clark did not like the idea  of second organizations doing  the work that should be done  by the chamber, of commerce.  He felt that one organization  with a combined strength could  do better work.  He recommended that the  businessmen take a survey of  shopping habits in- the community and find out what the public  did' not like about the service  received. He also thought they  could find out where people  shopped arid why. After getting  the results they should be analyzed.  Speaking on the great exodus  of business outside the community he suggested that sometimes we ask for it by ,the attitude presented the shopper.  People should' be treated as  though we needed them. Brighten the community, paint up,  clean up. There is a place for  the small business if the small  businessman would only wake  up.  uinnmHnnninimmimmiwnnunfflrawipiiniimmmimii ;v  CHRISTMAS BAZAAR  St. Bartholomew's ACW will  hold its Christmas Bazaar and  tea in the Legion hall, Gibsons,  Nov. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. There  will be free transportation arranged from the old post office  corner.  Board fights  for good name  Because the; Regional' District'  board was getting a bad name  over something it was handling  as a convenience to the provincial department of health, board  members at its meeting Friday  night of last week' decided to  cut off that service on Dec. 1  unless action was taken.;     Y  ' What the Regional Yboard desires isthat the health department take over inspection of  septic tanks instead of leaving  it to the Regional District building inspector. There is arrangement now. that "the Squamish inspector ; look after the  southern part of''the; district and  a Powell River inspector the  northern half. The latter inspector comes down from Powell  once each two weeks. This 's  regarded by the board as an  imposition on those involved in  building septic tanks and because the. building inspector is  involved the Regional District  board is blamed for tardiness  on inspections.  This has been a problem the ,  Regional District board has  been battling for months without  getting anywhere near a settlement. As a result the public will  be told to contact Minister of  Health Loffmark with their  problems and not the Regional  board. ,  There was a promise last year  that there would be an appropriation to cover the situation  in last year's provincial budget.  The letter read Friday night  from Mr. Loffmark again promised consideration in the next  budget.  GOLDEN WEDDING  Mr. and! Mrs. James Dowdie,  Truman road, celebrated their  golden wedding anniversary  Wed., Oct. 30 with open house  during the afternoon and evening.  A telegram from Prime Minister Trudeau was received  Tuesday by Mr. and Mrs. Dowdie. It congratulated them on  their golden wedding.  ISAFE STOLEN  Sechelt ROMP are holding a  suspect in connection with the  breaking into Pen Motors office  Monday night and removing the  office safe containing about $500  in cash. Police are looking for  the safe.  A special meeting to give the  Gibsons sewer bylaw required  readings will be called by Gibsons council as soon as the bylaw has been approved by Municipal Affairs Minister Campbell,  it was announced at Tuesday  night's meeting.  Aid. Wally Peterson was in  the chair. Mayor Fred Feeney  is up north for a few days hunting. ������'.-������  Iff provincial municipal department? approval can be obtained  in time it is expected Gibsons  sewage bylaw will be placed  .; before ^ratepayers for approval  on election day, December 7.  This was the anticipation of  Gibsoris municipal council at  its meeting Tuesday night. The  bylaw, while not yet completely  drawn ��� up. must receive approval of the department of muni-  .���cipalr-alfairs-in Victoria before;  \council can give it the necessary  readings before it can go to the  people for a vote.   ���.  The bylaw covers expenditure of $425,000 over a 20 year  period for the installation of a  sewer system. This system  would takein all the area north  of School road and the lower  section of Gibsons, around the  harbor area. The system would  be gravity from the top down to  near water level with the trunk  line running along the shoreline  area and around to Gibsons  Heights but not on Gibsons  Heights. At this point it should  connect with a pumping station  feeding a forced main' to the  outfall in Gospel Rock area-  It is not expected that sewage  will, be transported through the  systeiri until some time in 1971  at the earliest.  Green light on hospital  time  Friday night's meeting of the  Regional Hospital district received word it could go to the  people with a plebescite covering the expansion of St. Mary's  hospital to double its present  size.; '.

Following the ceremony there  will be a mug up for the young  folk and afterwords oldtime music, singing and dancing for the  ' oldsters. There will be a chicken stew on hand for the hungry. Festivities will last until  early evening.  PLANNING .APPOINTEES  On the basis that municipalities should have representation  on the technical planning committee covering regional districts. Mayor Fred Feeney  raised the point at the last  meeting of the Regional District  board. As a result both villages  will be asked to make such an  appointment. Gibsons representative will be Clerk David Johnston. Clerk Charles Gooding is  the Regional District appointee.  Sechelt will name its representative shortly.  IN  COURT  Hugh John Barkley of Gibsons was fined $50 when charged with leaving the scene of an  accident, Aug. 31, near Hopkiris  Landing. The accident was a  minor one.  Reginald Geoffrey Oram was  charged $100 for driving without  due care and attention, $50 for  driving while under suspension,  plus has drivers license being  suspended for six months.  Charges involving creating a  disturbance were dismissed.  nmuiuiiHinuiiraimmmuiimimramuiiirawnuuimnnmuumu  TIME  (CORRECTED  Royal CanadSan Legion 109  Cabaret dinner will be at 7 p.m.  Saturday Nov. 9, not 7:30 as 5n  the advertisement.  Committee planned  Frank Hay, Eric Hensch, John  Haddock and Dr. Eric Paetkau  were named as a nominating  committee at a meeting Tuesday night. They are to name a  representative ten man committee to get the project of build  ing-a community recreation com  plex for the Sunshine Coast off  the ground. "   '"     '"  The meeting, in the Cedars  dining room, was attended by 47  citizeris from all areas of the  Sunshine Coast. A great ^many  aspects of the project were discussed, including location, trans-  fortation, Regional District participation, and just what should  be included in such a complex.  Dr. Paetkau was chairman.  Gibsons and District'Chamber '  of Commerce  decided Monday  night to support in principle the  objectives of Sechelt's Chamber  of   Commerce   iri  acquiring   a  community centre for the Sunshine Coast areai  The support in principle contained a rider that Brothers  Memorial Park on the Sunshine  Coast Highway get consideration as a site for the proposed  building.  Erich Hensch, president of the  Secheit chamber spoke to Gibsons chamber members at Monday night's dinner meeting at  Cedars Inn. Mr. Hensch explained that what he wanted  from the chamber was nothing  more at present than its moral  support. He said there would  be two. or three years work before the project became a money problem.  Mr Hensch in his continued  reference,-to the Recreation  centre and the Sechelt Peninsula  drew a reminder from his listeners that it was for the Sunshine Coast and not the Sechelt  Peninsula  Airport debate continued  The Regional District plans? to  form a committee at its first  meeting next year to inquire  into the management and operation of the Sechelt-Gibsons municipal airport in Wilson Creek  area.  The Regional District at its  Friday night meeting was faced  with two letters from Gibsons  and Sechelt councils both asking  what further information the  Regional District sought about  the airport.  The municipal councils had  first asked the Regional board  to take over the airport. The Regional board countered with a  letter stating it had no power to  take over airports and would  also like further information before placing the issue before the  public.  End of discussion on airport  WTnuroHUiramurauMU^^ came when board mem  bers favored appointment of a  committee to find out all pertinent information on the whole  operation. Mayor Feeney, iboard  director for Gibsons, added that  he wanted the committee to  bring in a recommendation for  the Regional board to work on.

This included school board trustees,  Regional District representatives., members of Gibsons and Sechelt  municipal councils and Hospital Improvement District officials.  He pointed out that over a short space of time, ratepayers could  be asked to approve the spending of something like six-and-a-half  millions of dollars. His idea was to obtain some sort of priority in  what would go before the public arid at what time. The result of the  meeting was the proving of the fact they .were in a muddle for  taxpayer support. ,  Involved in the discussion was the hospital expansion, school  board requirements, Gibsons, sewage proposal, Sechelt's interest  in water and the Regional District's area water program.  We are now faced with a Regional District vote on Nov. 23 to  extend its Letters Patent-so it can include water as a function.  There is no money involved; That comes later. What one should  remen-ber about water is that it will be a self-liquidating measure.  You pay for water as you use it.  This leaves the school board's much-needed referendum for  $1,060,506 for Madeira Park, Gibsons Elementary and Elphinstone  school improvements and additions and Gibsons municipal council  sewage system bylaw to cost $425,000. Both votes will be polled the  saime day, Dec. 7, municipal and school board election day.  Ratepayers of Gibsons will vote on the sewage bylaw as there  is no school trustee election this year for Gibsons village. Gibsons  will also vote on the school board referendum.  But to get back to Mr. West's priorities, there is room for more  cohesion between elected units and the timing of the presentation  of money bylaws. Too many money bylaws at any time is not a  good thing. A multiplicity of ballots leads to confusion. It takes  very little to confuse the pubic where a polling booth is concerned.  Mayor Fred Feeney was quite right in protesting at the  Regional District meeting Friday night on the apparent haste that  was being shown in striving to get the proposed hospital addition  construction sandwiched in with the other bylaws on municipal  election day. He said it scared him to see so much going before the  people at one, time. He was quite correct in assuming that the result  would be that nothing would receive public approval under such  circumstances.  Perhaps it would be in order for Mr. West to call another.  meeting of elected representative-! to find out if their views on  priorities have changed. Mr. West strived to push the hospital  construction proposal through at the Regional District meeting.  Let's hope that his views have not changed on the subject of  priorities.  A shoreline totem pole  Ever wonder how totem poles might have originated?  Take your new telephone book showing a rolling hill on  Okanagan Lake, hold it sideways and examine closely the hill and  its reflection in the water. Notice how the shoreline markings  resemble through double exposure the markings of a totem pole.  Many years ago in a copy of the defunct Canadian magazine  a photographer, a woman, through halftone cuts displayed about  25 such scenes, some of them equal to any totem pole you may have  seen or imagined.  Imagination is a wonderful thing and who knows but what  some Indian in bygone days lying down opposite some such scene  visualized the totem pole as we know it today.  It is a thought anyway, believe it or not!  Elementary articulation!  THE  GHOST  IN  THE      GRANDFATHER  CLOCK  Before I tell this story I must  introduce you to the children  who are going to solve this  mystery. Their names are Marcus and Mary Boyd. They are  the only mystery-solving twins  in the district. Mary and Mark  (short for Marcus) call themselves  the Boyd detectives.  It was a quiet Sunday morning Mother was at church with  Father and the twins were laying on the floor day-dreaming,  but they both knew that they  wouldn't stay like that for very  long because one would start to  giggle sooner or later. Mary as  ���always broke the silence.  She whispered, "Mark, did  you hear any weird noises just  now."  Mark was a little scared to  reply but he said, "Yup, pro-  b'ly mice."  "No it was different from  mice. AHH."  Something had happened and  Mary screamed as the lights  went  out.  Mary yelled out, "Marcus  Boyd you put these lights back  on or I'll wring your neck for  you." 4  A squeeky answer replied,  "It wasn't me."  But before Mark could finish  his sentence there was a knock  on the door.  "Who do you suppose could  be at the door at eight o'clock  in the morning?" Mary whispered.  Then there was a strange  noise at the door, sort of like  a rattle, then someone said,  " 'urry up, matey, this stuff is  'eavy."  "Oh, it must be the delivery  man bringing mom's fur coat."  said Mark.

I want this part of the shore to  be known as the Sunshine Belt.  The Trail of Chack Chack is  an unforgettable story written  by Harry Roberts of Billings  Bay, Nelson Island, a copy of  which has reached the Coast  News. Harry Roberts obtained  his first view of Roberts Creek  when he, with his father and  sister Ida, rowed from Vancouver's False Creek area to the  old homestead built by Granddad Roberts and his wife at  Roberts Creek. It was there  Harry's father decided he would  settle, building his own- home.  Harry's mother died in England  before the family moved to  Canada.  *��� *   ���       *  '    .

In the preface he writes that  he was a bald-headed man when  cruising the coast in his 12-ton  yawl, which he made himself.  It was called the Chack Chack  which is Chinook for Baldhead  eagle. So he became known as  Skipper Chadk Chack. He  named his book The Trail of  Chack Chack.  Y sf. 7 * ..'.

This pig followed him everywhere and when pleased with  some. action it had done, would  leap around and emit a sort of  growling bark.

By   HON.   ISABEL   DAWSON  An analysis oi Canadian labor  shows ''.that'''British Columbia's  labqr force has grown more  rapidly than that of any other  of the provinces.  This growth has taken place  despite, present trends in automation and a decreasing demand for unskilled workers. A  higher degree of automation in  the primary industries has  given rise to exceptionally high  labor productivity as well as  placing capital invested per  worker well albove the national  average.  Large gains in industrial employment, particularly in the  construction industry, reflects  extensive forestry and hydroelectric projects currently under way in the province, while  the expansion of employment in  service-producing industries re-'  fleets the rapid rate of "population "growth and increasing  levels of personal income.  The ^growth of the female  labor force in British Columbia  has been phenomenal during the  past decade. The' number of  females employed showed a  tremendous 81.6 percent increase from 1957 to 1967, while  the growth in the male labor  force was less than 30 percent.  A number of factors are responsible for this trend, including a strong demand for female  labor by the trade and service  industries, the postponement of  child-raising by many young  married couples, and ah increase in the number of middle-aged women Seeking employment after having raised  their children.  During the space of one year,  the personal income in British  Columbia rose 9.4 percent to  pass the 5,000 million mark in  dollars and -cents- It was bolstered by increases in both employment and average weekly  wages and salaries. Personal income reached $2,579 per worker- :" '7'YY- 7:  It, is. notable that British Columbia's high level of per capita  personal income has been attained despite a shorter workweek than the rest of Canada.  The three major areas of employment are manufacturing;  transportation and: communication; trade, business and personal services.! These account  for more than half the working  fq^ce.Y  Although manufacturing retained its high percentage of the  work farce, it. showed a slight  decline from an . all-time high  of lastiyeari as did the forestry  industry. Mining, which made  rapid gains during the 1965-66  period, levelled off in 1967. Construction, although accounting  for only 6.3 percent of the province's labor force, made the  most phenomenal gains during  the past five ,years.  A steady upward tend in both  the number of people employed  and the per capita personal income for British Columbia is  assured, and its 1967 labor  force of 762^000 grows daily.  usmess  orms  CONTINUOUS REGISTER  CONTINUOUS CARBON  CARBON SNAPS  REPAIR.. SERVICE  WORK ORDERS  PERSONALIZED OR  STOCK FORMS  order your  PackMd form  Coast News  Ph. 386:262-  By A. R. BUCKYEY  Now is the time to dig summer and fall-flowering corms  and tubers. Some of these can  wait until a few frosts have  occurred^ but others should be  dug as soon as freezing weather is expected./Several methods  of digging and storing have  been tested at the Plant Research institute over the past  decade; the following ones  have given the greatest satisfaction.  Tuberous Jbegonias: At the  first sign of iro'st dig tuberous  begonias, leaving as much soil  on the tubers as possible and  the tops intact. Store them for  about three weeks until the tops  can easily be broken off. Then  clean the tubers and pack them  in vermiculite or dry peat moss.  Store them dry in a temperature of 50 to 557 degrees until  late March or April,'when they  can be started .into 'growth  again. Caladiums are treated  in the same way.  Cannas: After the first frost,  cut the stems back to six inches. Dig the '. roots, let them  dry, and store them in a single  layer in a box of sand or peat  moss at a temperature of 40  to 50 degrees;  YDahlias: Since these tubers  should be stored for the shortest time possiible, it is better  to wait until the beginning of  November before digging them.  Of course, this depends upon  the weather. If a freeze-up appears probable then you should  dig them right away or else  you will have difficulty in getting the tubers out of the  ground. Removing the tubers  from the soil should be done  with great care since it is very  easy to break the brittle roots.  Cut the stems to within six inches of the ground and dig  carefully around the plant with  a digging fork. Then lift the  clumps from the soil by prying  with the fork. For this operation two people are much better than one, so if possible, enlist the aid of someone and use  two forks, one on each side . ' 7  If the dahlias have been grow  ing on heavy land, the, soil may  toe  left  on   the  roots .and. the  roots   stored: ori  a   cool   baseY  ment: floor, either as theyy are 7  or in boxes, but without femOv-7  ing the, soil-   In this way they;;  will., certainly keep until spring.^  If the  soil is light  arid   sandy7  it will fell away from the tiiti-^  ers as soon as they7 are liftedY  and some other means must be^  adopted for  storage.  Take theY  clumpis down to the baseriiient; |  leave tfrem to dry 7for at leasts  a couple of weeks, then place  them in   a   carton   and  cover  them   with  vermiculite. -'...Leave?-;  the tubers in a temperature oft  45   to   50   degrees   until . Aprif^  then : move them to a  warmer  place to start sprouting. About  the  middle of January it is  a  good idea- to inspect one or two  of the tubers to see how they  arecoming through the wintier;  If they are very dry and there  is danger of shriveling sprinkle  them with water.; i  Gladiolus: Gladiolus cOrr._s7  may be dug either after a  seyere frost or before frosts  have occurred. The main point  is to give them as long a growing season as possible and yet  dig them before the ground  freezes. If you have' only a few  Ibulbs, midrOctoberis usually a  good time, but if the planting  is large, an earlier start is advisable.;; -,-:,.:-;..-.'  Before digging, have boxes  and labels ready iri the gardens  also some 5% YP-D-T. '-.dus...  Loosen the bulbs first with a  fork on each side of the row  and then lift them with one  hand while cutting the tops off  clpse to the corm with fche  other; place each variety iri a  flat and label it. As soon as one  box is filled with corm*,  sprinl.le a little D.D.T; on them.  When the old bulb comes  away from the new one it is  time to clean and store them.  This will be in December, if  you dig them now. Clean off  the old corm and the outer  loose skin, but do not take off  all the outer husk down to the  fleshy corm. If you are going  to propagate ���* new bulbs, save  all the small eormels that adhere to the old coriri for planting new year.  As the corms are cleaned they  should be dusted as well. To  do this, place a teaspoon of '3  or 5% D.D.T dust in a ten-  pound bag and half fill it with  cleaned corms; then shake  thoroughly and take out - the  bulbs. This quantity of dust  should     be     sufficient  for   25  ccn.:<r. Store the clean bulbs in  flats- ];.ac*ed one orr top of the  oiher with blocks of wood be-  twe-t n them to allow a circulation   of   air.

ISABEL   DAWSON  British Columbia's rapid population growth has caused' a  corresponding increase in the  number of pupils enrolled in the  school system. In the past decade it has grown from an enrolment of just over 250,000 to  well over 450,000.     '. ',  Education, free for tuition up  to the grade 12 levels, is financed jointly by municipal and  provincial government revenue.  Policy is determined1 by the  provincial department of education, while provincial statutes  place the operation and maintenance of public schools in  each of theschool districts under , the jurisdiction of a locally  elected board of school trustees.  Last year British Columbia  had 445,228 students being  taught by 17,457 teachers in  1,429 schools, presenting a high  level of education. Records  show that 75 percent of elementary-school enrolment enter  grade 1'2, 50 percent graduate  from high school, 35 percent  obtain university program  standing, 30 percent enter colleges and 15 percent obtain  degrees.  Vocational courses are provided j ointly by the provincial  and federal governments. Vocational schools are located  throughout the province at Vancouver, Burnaby, Victoria, Nanaimo, Nelson, Prince George,  Kelowna and Dawson Creek.  Foremost expansion includes  Terrace (open this fall), and  Kamloops. Last year nearly  34,000 persons attended these  schools.. There is much demand  in commerce and industry for  graduates of vocational schools.  Universities: in the province  showed attendance figures of  approximately 18,500 at University of British Columbia, 5,000  at Simon Fraser, 4,000 at University of Victoria and 541 at  Notre Dame.  To ensure that higher education is available throughout  British Columbia, a policy of  establishing district regional  colleges' is being pursued'. Enrolment at Selkirk College was  over 500 and at Vancouver City  College over 1,800.  The Okanagan Regional College plans to open in the> 1968-09  year with an enrolment of 400.  iSpecial educational institutes  include such places as Jericho  Hill School in Vancouver which  provides modern facilities for  the education of the deaf and  blind.  British   Columbia   ranks well  above the national- average in  per capita years of schooling,  with its 30 percent of the elementary students entering uni-'  versity as compared with less  than 25 percent for the national  average. PAUL  ST. PIERRE, MP  Coast - Chilcotin  PRINCE GEORGE ��� Portions of thought, some half-di-  gestec.; found in a politician's  notebook at the Prince George  Indian Consultative Meeting:  ITHE.. PURPOSE is to give  Indians an opportunity to suggest what changes they would  like to see in a new Indian Act.  The idea is so rational that one  wonders why nobody thought of  it before.  Indian Affairs: department  spokesmen are present, including 'B.C.-Yukon Commissioner  J.V. Boys. The department officials 7 offer informiatibri when  asked, they listen to the; views  expressed and make notes, but  they do not' attempt to suggest  what the Indians' views or actions should be. One white wit-,  ness who asks if he may introduce a resolution for the Indians to consider is told "No, just  leave it in your pocket."  This.is tlie first round of consultations to be held on the rewriting of tlie Act. Another is  promised. There are, therefore,  no final decisions being taken at  these conferences. 7  INDIANS' REACTIONS -are  varied at the Prince George  meeting.  It's a very good thing, for the  whites," says one. Another says  "The Indian Act has already  been rewritten in a room in  Ottawa. They're just letting us  talk a little bit about it to make  us feel better. Then they'll  bring in- the act they've got  ready."  A   third   says   "First   day, "17  don't understand much of what  they say in that place, so I go  to the beer parlor."  OF THIRTY chiefs and delegates attending, 20 or more are  present for all sessions ��� a better record than is frequently  registered in Parliament.  The old Indian act, which has  already been amended five  times since 1952 is a complicated document. Even in its condensed form it contains 123 sections.  AN EXAMPLE of one of the  many difficult questions involves  the voting rights of band members.  All Indians registered in a  band share in the band's rights  whether living on or off the re-.  serve. In any decision to lease  reserve lands, should band  members living off the reserve  be enabled to Vote?  Those who   said  yes  to  the  question pointed out that since .  the rights of all were affected,  all should vote.  Those who said no pointed out  that on some Canadian reserves  the number living in the white  community exceeds the number  on the reserve. Those still living  on the reserves are most direc-  ly affected1 by decisions' of this  nature, yet they could \be outvoted by Indians remote . from  the reserve and indifferent to  its problems.

Mrs. R. Vernon reported on  the success of the thrift sale,  especially the Bid Table, and  thanked people who helped  make it-a success. Mrs.vVernon>  leader of the Gower unit, in  charge of the Christmas Bazaar  said it will be called Christmas  Bonanza. There will be added  features, a booth of collector's  items, gift wrapping and a del-  icatessan.  Mrs. C. Horner, leader of the  Evening unit was in charge of  the devotional period during  which Mrs. Vernon sang a delightful solo.  Mrs. C. Horner and Mrs. J.  Duncan read alternately from  Give Thanks Whatever Happens  and Mrs. Vernon led the group  in a version of the Twenty-  third' Psalm, in unison. Additional guests were five iadiesY  from   the   Pentecostal   Church  the Mesdames Parke; Wyngaert,  Wisken, Brackett and Charman.  Miss Mildred Cates, the speaker, who has just retired i after  nearly 40 years in India wore a  beautiful silk sari that had been  given her'by an Indian friend.  Her work was in the Mashya  Pradish, a middle province,  where there are 14 major languages, so that most business is  conducted   in   English,   though  she learned tp speak Hindii.  She was principal of a public  school, called primary, with a  staff of seven teachers.

What are  the grounds for an' annulment  of marriage? Is impotence the  only ground for an annulment  of marriage? Can the provinces  or the federal government make  laws about annulment of marriage?  Answer: It is necessary to-  sue and obtain a decree from a  court of law, after a trial, to  ofbtain an annulment (except in  the very rare case of a parliamentary annulment). An annulment is a declaration by a court  that the alleged or reputed marriage is null and void, that is,  _hat it is hot, and never has  been, a marriage.  Only the Dominion parliament  can pass  statutes dealing with  annulment.   However,   the  provincial    legislatures    can pass  laws dealing with the solemnization of marriage within the province and if these are not complied  with,   the marriage  may  be a nullity. The federal parliament has not seen fit to pass  any statutes listing the grounds  for annulment, and the law on  this   subject   (as in most  matters of divorce and matrimonial  affairs)   is  in quite a  jumble.  We are thrown back on old English   statutes  which  date  back  centuries;   but   which are   still  applicable,   having  never  been  altered by Canadian statute. We  must look also  to the archaic  rules  of ecclesiastical law,  al-  ;   though there are no longer ecclesiastical    courts    with    the  power to make decisions recognized by law.  The grounds for an; annulment are: (1) bigamy, (2) impotence, (3) mental incapacity,  (4) prohibited degrees of consanguinity or affinity, (5) absence of consent, (6) nonage  and (7) failure to meet requirements of formal validity.  Bigamy means one of the  partie*s being married at the  time of the second riiarriage  ceremony.  Impotence (not sterility)  means one party being physically incapable of consummating  the marriage or being incapable by reason of an invincible  mental repugnance to the sexual act ��� but mere refusal is  insufficient.  Mental * incapacity occurs  where one party was at the  time of the ceremony; unable  to understand the nature of the  marriage contract or the duties  and responsibilities which it  creates.  Consanguinity is .relationship  toy blood; affinity is relationship by marriage. A man may  not marry his grandmother,  grandfather's wi f e, wife's  grandmother, father's sister,  mother's, sister, father's brother's wife, mother's brother's  wife, wife's father's sister',  wife's mother's sister, mother,  stepmother, wife's mother,  daughter, wife's daughter, son's  wife, sister; son's daughter,  daughter's daughter, son's son's  wife, daughter's son's wife,  wife's son's daughter, wife's  daughter's daughter, brother's  daughter, sister's daughter,  brother's son's wife, or sister's  son's wife.

Absence of consent means a  party did not really consent to  the marriage- for example, if  they were drunk or drugged at  the time. It includes frauds (as  in the case; of one party impersonating another at the ceremony), mistake (as in the case  of a party to a ceremony in  the registrar's office thinking it  was a declaratibri of an intention to marry), and duress ���  for example, the shot-gun wedding where a party- werjt  through with the*cerembny out  of fear or because of force.  Nonage ���- ecclesiastical law  provides that if both or One of  the parties are less than seven  years  of age, the  riiarriage  is  absolutely void  and if one or  both  are oyer  seven,   but  the  male   is  under   14   and/or   the  female is   under  12,   the  marriage may be declared void unless it has been confirmed by  consent, upon the party or parties concerned    reaching   those  ages.   By   provincial   law;   the  parties must be 21 and if not,  must obtain the consent of both  their  parents   in   writing,   and  if  under 16 must obtain  such  consents and a court order allowing  the  marriage.  If, however, (by me_ms of some deception  practised against the  authorities, the parties do marry,  despite these provisions of provincial law, the* marriage cannot be annulled.  Formal validity ��� No mere  technical departure from provincial statutory requirements  will nullify a marriage but certain fundamental requirements  must be met such as the necessity that the clergyman be such  (in a Religious ceremony) and  that the correct names of the  parties must be used ���, but  only in cases where a wrong  name   entirely^^confounded   the  identity of a party or the use  of a wrong name originated in  some fraud.  There is more to obtaining an  annulment, however, than just  proving one of the ajbeve  grounds. A plaintiff Twill be refused a judgment in his favor  if he is guilty of coUusion, or  if he has failed to act on his  rights when he learned of them  and instead took advantage of  the .'.rights"- and benefits of the  marriage. Similarly, the existence of a separation agreement .  between the parties may prevent an annulment.

For the velvet touch: To raise  nap on ' cotton/.-, velvet, place  garments, in dryer with two  damp bath towels. Tumble for  about five minutes then hang  until thoroughly dry.  Shrinking zippers: Here's a  sewing' tip. Sometimes a zipper  tape in a cotton garment1 will  shrink and look puckered after  the garment has been /washed. Y  Avoid this by soaking zippers  and drying them flat Ibefore  stitching into a cottpn garment.  Cotton for reinforcing: Cotton  iron-oh interiacahg is an, excellent sewing aid. Use it in small  areas for reinforcement and to  prevent fraying. For instance,  you can use interfacing behind  (buttonholes, for reinforcing  points of gussets, and on the  underarm curves of kimono-  type dresses.  Elegant Windows: To give  windows a  really  elegant look,  cover curtain rods with the  same fabric thati's used for  draperies. For rods, use the  heavy wooden poles that are  so popular now. The fabric can  be stapled or glued around the  poles.

First,  make sure the chest is sturdy  enough for re-use and has  simple lines. Paint it a /bright  color and cover each drawer  front with a printed cotton  fabric. Choose a vivid floral design or a bold plaid that coordinates with other fabrics in  the room. Use fabric glue to  apply the cotton print to drawer  fronts.

Perhaps' a  community with a population of  100,000 might delineate such  things because distance would  be a problem. This one facility  could be the centre for golf, curling, skating, tennis, lawn bowling, swimming, handball, badminton, squash and volley ball.  Of course it isn't necessary or  even advisable to have all these  things. A start might be made  with two or three and in time  more could (be added, even  skiing;  Such a composite plan has  been developing across Canada  since 1946 when a numlber of  building projects for games were  erected as memorials. Some  communities just built a community hair and some built curling and skating rinks, tennis  courts.':- IrT hi any cases these  were related to an existing golf  club. In more recent years,  many communities have set up  recreational plans believing that  they are of great value in any  place.

In, eveiiy province there are  communities both small and  large which have embarked on  such a program.  Most plans start from a golf  course or golf club. There is  good reason for so doing. First,  the golf clulb usually has considerable property surrounding a  . club house and secondly, a golf  cli_b has always a large membership. A number of golf clubs,  like our own Sunshine Coast  club, call themselves Golf and  Country Cldb which opens the  door to other recreational and  social facilities. The social facility may become a most useful one.  -Certainly such an enterprise  would be a costly one but it  would be a great financial saving if one location is used for  two, three or four facilities. On  the Sunshine Coast it would  seem to me that the present location of the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country club is most  advantageous. Any kind of amalgamation should prove helpful  to the present clulb and the club  iri turn would he able to lend a  hand in several different ways.  There would be a co-ordination  of operation until eventually one  large and very useful plan  would be followed. Of course,  such an overall development  would need careful consideration but it is feasible. Some will  reject the plan because of cost,  because of operational variation  or because of small numbers  but none of these objections are  really valid in the light of what  has been done elsewhere.  Any one who has visited the  Brookline Club outside Boston  or the Board of Trade Club in  Woodibridge, Ontario (and many  others) has seen the overall recreation plan doing a grand service. I could add the Cataraqu  Club in Kingston where golf and  curling have been operating under one club house for many  years-.  Y  It is noted that in all these  cluibs regardless of the number  of athletic facilities, there is a  co-ordinating principle of membership and fees. It is not my  purpose to set up any plan in  detail but it is worth while to  show the method used, particularly where there is an existant  golf clulb. The name of Golf and  Country Clulb I will use as the  basis of development. Here is a  suggested skeleton schedule.  1. A basic membership fee in  the clulb (perhaps a debenture  holder) for individuals or 7 a  family membership. It could ibe  an initial $100 or $200 entrance  and then an annual fee of $25 or  $50. This could Vbe 7set also for  social memlbers biily.  2. Golf facility ��� say $50 to  $100 annual fee.  3. Lawn bowling ��� say $35 to  ���$75. ..      .   -���-���������.-7 ������������;.   "'  4. Curling or skating '��� the  same a_71awn ^howling.  5. Tennis - the same, as lawn  bowling.  All these facilities and more  could be developed as necessity  demanded but the number does  show poss_bi_ities and if there  were those who wanted to take  part in aU fa^iUtiesswiien avail-  aible, an overall metafoership fee  could be established. The principle is that you'belong to the  club  and  then  chose  your recreation.  7 In brief, the management of  such an operation could start  simply with a general board of  directors and a small management committee of each sport  with a representative on the  general board. In time, it would  likely demand a resident manager or paid secretary or both.  This program of recreation for  the Sunshine Coast would be a.  tremendous asset as the years  bring more and more residents  to the area.  Rev.

S.VYY"  It came ibeifore the board  meeting when Ya water rights  branch letter informed the board  of the application. It turned out  that on July 18, 1967 the application of Sechelt council for the  reservation of all unrecorded  water was passed Iby order-in-  -.council, therefore no application  for the use of such water could  be considered. The: Regional  District board decided it could  not support the company's application.  Clerk Charles Gooding said  inquiries were increasing on the  water development scheme the  Regional District was undertaking. Director Harvey Hubbs reported that at Tar puiblie meeting  on the water issue the main  inquiry was whether it was  true all users would have to  pay a connection fee when.the  system' was estafblished. He informed questioners that where  connections now exist there  would be NO connection charge.  He also informed the meeting  that where isolated users were  involved' they would have to pay  for the laying of piping to their  premises tout when others were  added to the line as the population increased there would be  refunds to the original users,  balancing the cost to them.  Director A.J. Rutherford reported no reaction so far ifrom  Pender Harbour Waterworks on  the Regional District plan to  take over water sources .He  found that opposition to the water project was not being shown  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Miss Sharon Marsh, daughter  of Mr. and'Mrs. J.R.'

Meetings are being arranged  in all regions of the district so  directors can meet members1 of  the public and answer questions  from ratepayers.  As regards the 'money involved in the formation of the  water system, the amount will  be liquidated over a 20 year  period with funds collected from  users, of water,. Clerk Charles  Gooding explained. Chairman  Frank West added that if the  water bylaw is turned down the  Regional board will be left powerless to help out any area  with its water problems Y  Discussions on water ended  with the final reading of the bylaw covering the Sat., Nov. 23  vote on whether ratepayers  wanted the Regional District to  extend its Letters Patent to include the supply and distribution of water -as 'a function. The  bylaw passed unanimously.  to  Editor: The accuracy of Mr.  Jules Mainil-s review of Pierre  Trud'eau'shook Federalism and  . the French Canadians is undeniable. An important book for  Canadians of all ethnic backgrounds, it shouldY be read in  depth as much exists between  the lines.  Those who have knowledge of  the causes of Separatism��� and  there are many causes ��� will  read the book with sympathetic  underst-tnding. Without this, the.  separatist movement can grow;  but French - Canadians themselves are the best people to  deal with it.  Led by our prime minister  they can arid, unless upset by  those with bias, will do so. M.  Trudeau used the word arrogance, so does Mr. Mainil. No  other word will suffice. This  arrogance is found at many  levels of economic, academic  and political sectors of our Canadian society, and on both sides,  when this subject is, discussed.  Moreso in the east, possibly,  than in the west.  M. Trudeau's book provides  some reassurance that all problems can be solved but the solution can bnly_be feached when  good will exists oh both sides.  Mr. Mainil's excellent review  should entice responsible, earnest persons to read the book  iri a spirit of good will.:    "  H. F.

The problem arises over a  North road property owner requesting the Regional District  to find other means to reach  the garbage dumps than through  his property. The original request was made some months  ago and so far the Regional  board and Gibsons municipal  council,have been unable to get  the roads department to prepare the registered road area  for public use.  Clerk Charles Gooding reporting on the Sechelt garbage road  situation said that access to  Sechelt dump had been discussed with Mr. Crucil andi a  verbal agreement made that  use of the present road contin- i  ue provided the board accepts  responsibility for any refuse  dumped on his property.
