Mr.  HanhaYwho commented on Mr.  Cooper's report declared the  idea was an experiment worth  watching.  Volunteer aides have worked  before in the school in an early  morning remedial program and  there has always been the -willing corps of helpers oh sports  days.//.There is also: the science-  club ' which has flourished, for  three years with direction fronr  Mrs. MYWest,     >:.Y--iY :";%*H:.'  This year the program was  expanded vand *afterY several;.,  briefing sessions with"the" principal and teachers involved; the  volunteer aides began work in  the, library, tlieYopen area arid  in parts of the primary section.

The chairman maintained  that such a project could- save  the taxpayers some money. The  Regional District board hoped  iri its letter to the school board  that the matter was being kept  alive by the school iboard.  Secretary ���-/ treasurer James  Metzler was named to the South  Coast Region of school districts  technical planning committee on  zoning and general matters affecting school districts.  School loan bylaw No. 18 was  passed covering a> 20 year 6.40  percent sinking debentures fund  for $140/000 for capital expense  projects.  Transportation matters concerned requests from the Pender Harbor Ratepayers association asking for transportation  for kindergarten pupils and the  Sunshine Coast Trailer Park residents at the S turn of the, highway seeking transportation from  there to Gibsons schools. Both  were turned down, the kindergarten on general policy and the  trailer park . because the - children,, were, within the ...required  walking 'distance.  Trustee Labonte reported that  no flashing traffic light had  been installed at the North Road  highway corner also no 30 mpJi  sigh on North;road.

Martin Warnock dies  Martin Wairnock, who would  have been 7% on Nov. 9, lies  buried in a Madeira Park cemetery, donated by him to the/ area  many years ago. He died on Oct  11. He had lived in and around  the Bargain Harbour area almost from the time he arrived  in the area in September., 1909.  More than 200 persons attended the funeral in Madeira Park  Community Hall at which Rev.  A.

When that burned down he repeated his action, found more  logs, had them sawn up'. and  then built into another school.  He possessed at one time the  fastest boat in the area, the  Kerry W which he used several  times to transport seriously ill  patients into . Vancouver, at  times through heavy gales, in-  forriiing ther Brockton Point; shipping station as: he passed- that  he; required an: ambulance at  the dock:where he w.ould land.  He made such an imprint on  the area in which he lived that  Warnock road is named after  him. He was on the credit union  organizing committee serving as  an officer for eight years and  for 12 years was a member of  the school board of that area.  He was also the best Santa  the area ever had? and was a  great favorite amoflg children.  He was one of the most trusted  members of the community.  He knew the coastline like a  book and had worked on various ;  CPR boats, that sailed along this  coast.  Besides his wife Martha, he  leaves three sons, Bill, Ed and  Jim and three daughters, Mrs.  A. (Cledia) Duncan, Mrs. T.  (Luella) Duncan all of Pender  Harbour; Mrs. S. (Nina) Almas  of Nanaimo; 17 grandchildren  and five great-grandchildren.  There were nine children in his  family but three died.  THIS IS NOT Sechelt's entry into the space race, in spite of its appearance. It is a shelter for a radio transmitter, to be located east  of Throm Hill Creek,' at the 6300 foot level, to serve B.C.

The shelter has a fibreglass shell,;  and is aibout 20 feet high and eight feet in diameter.  Tourist association  to meet at Jplly Roger  The annual meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Tourist association will take place Sunday,  Oct. 27 starting at 2 p.m. in the  Jolly Roger Inn, Secret Cove:  At this meeting reports from  the president and directors will  be read along with the financial  statement. This will be followed  by the election of officers. Voting members shall be those  persons holding a $50 full membership in 1967 or new full members, taking out membership, at  the annual meeting. However,  opinions and suggestions of associate "members^ are\.always  ���welcome.   "-*/4v    '- ~* "   "*"''^  In 1968 the association printed  and distributed 20,000 brochures  through tourist offices, automobile clubs, on ferries, by mail,  sport shows, and any other  means possible, covering mainly  the Western United States and  Western Canada Enquiries have  been answered through our brochures obtained in B.C. and  Canada Houses in London,  England.  The Canadian -government  tourist office spends large sums  of money to bring the foreign  visitors to'''Canada',".' the B.C.  government follows through with  excellent advertising to bring  visitors to B.C. Region B., Hope  to Lund, association goes after  the visitors for Region B area,  and the Sunshine Coast Tourist  association entices them to the  Sunshine Coast Region B affiliation is our inost valuable connection. Our membership in Region B is by per capita assessment, and all funds to Region B  treasury is matched dollar for  dollar,by grants from the B.C.  government and the total fund  is  spent  in tourist  magazines,  < sport   magazines,,   newspapers,  TV, obtaining the finest cover-  , age possible, and advertising the  Sunshine Coast specifically according to our assessment paid.  If local communities desire to  publicize their own area, a brochure  can  be  put  out by the  community or by a hotel or motel;    any   worthwhile   brochure  will cost around $3,500 and the  individual cost is such that not  "Ymany can afford it in quantity  t required, and the additional cost  : of distribution which is no small  " amount.

' Every  business   on   the .Sunshine   Coast benefits  from   the  dollars   spent   by   the   visitors,  firstly the accomihodation business such as hotels, motels, restaurants, gas stations and" rental  firms;  secondly the retail firms  dealing directly with the visitors  arid  from  the  businesses  first  mentioned  by  supplies and   e-  quipment;    individuals   by   increased   employment,   and   increased taxes to municipal governments on expanded places of  business. Increased tourist business  expands all  communities,  arid   provides   better   and   increased services to the residents  of each community.  There are still a large number  of businesses on the Sunshine  Coast, especially tourist services, who are not members of  this association and ride along  free on)the publicity paid for by  the conscientious members of  our communities.  The association requires more  members and personal interest  to continue the ever-expanding  tourist industry.  Close generation gap  The generation gap was happily bridged on Sunday last  when the Roberts Creek Brownies entertained 26 senior citizens at a Thanksgiving dinner  at the Legion Hall.  Fourteen eager little girls between the ages of 7 and 12 prepared the vegetables, set up  and decorated the tables, gathered and arranged flowers,  ferns and maple leaves. When  the guests arrived they dashed  out to open car doors, escort  the elderly up the stairs and  assist with  coats  and hats.  wmmmmmmmmmmsmmmmmm  TURN CLOCK BACK  Turn your clock back one  hour Saturday night before  retiring or you will be one  hour ahead of the time Sunday morning. Don't forget!  Don't believe those who  claim you should put your  clock one hour ahead. You  did that last April ��� now  you turn it back. -  aiuiuwuuuuraitmuv  Mrs. K: Blomgren cooked the  huge turkey, and Brownie mothers assisted at the stove and  handling of heavy cooking utensils. When the guests were seated the girls marched in from  the kitchen in a single file assembly line each bearing a platter, bowl or tray, and efficiently served each one. The dinner  was complete from wine to  pumpkin pie.  After the meal the children  cleared the tables and then  vigorously led the singing in the  program which they had planned. Mrs. W. Oakley on piano  and Mrs. M. Almond on guitar,  played the old favorites while  the guests joined in the concert.  Leaders Mrs. Helga Connor  and Mrs. Almond were pleased  with the result of their attempt  to lessen the generation gap,  with the resourcefulness of the  children and their eager response to participate, and with  the lesson so pleasantly learned  ��� that there is joy in giving,  and thinking of others.  A Senior Citizens housing project for Gibsons Area is now  in the active planning stage.:  Ronald McPhedran, president of  the Sunshine Coast Kiwanis  Club, Gibsoris, has announced  the formation of a project building committee composed of club  members. The - committee is  looking at land in the area in  order to get the best, possible  site. The land has to be hear  services such as stores arid  transportation and must be ori  a water distribution system.  Two parcels of land are under  consideration and . preliminary  negotiations have been held with  the owners. It is anticipated  that for a start ten units will .  be constructed and provision  made for future  expansion.    .

Another project how under way is  an eight. day all-expense paid  trip to Reno for two, to be  awarded Dec. 19. Contributions  are $1 and receipts are available from all club members.  Further inrorrr_a..oi- on the  project can be obtained from  Ron McPhedran, John Harvey,  George Hopkins,r Jim Munro and  Dave Johnston members of the  committee.  Sechelt hears  credit talk  Both Gibsonh and Sechelt  merchants have held meetings  at which discussions were held  on the formation of a credit  bureau for the area.  The Gibsons meeting was held  Thursday night of last week in  Elphinstone school when David  Leslie, lawyer who plans to open  an office in Gibsons, spoke to  20 Gibsons merchants, outlining  costs and other details. This  meeting decided he should approach  Sechelt: merchants.  At the Sechelt meeting, a  Tuesday luncheon at Peninsula  Drive-in, 24 attended, including  three from Gibsons., Frank Hay,  Walt Nygren and Ewart McMynn, went over the same details as those given at Gibsons.  As a result both Gibsons and  Sechelt merchants decided to  give the problem further consideration.  wiimmmiiimiiiMiiiini)iiiiiiiiiii_i>im\iimiiiiimmmnmimi..j  SPEED LIMIT CHANGED  Roads department officials report that the speed limit between Gibsons and Langdale  has been changed and that it  is now a 30 mph zone both ways  Gibsons to Langdale. Before the  change the limit varied from  20 mph to 40.  wiuiiuwuuuuiuiMmMiiuinuuuuuuiiwwiMuuiwiiaiwinB  ai  A suggestion that the municipalities of Sechelt and Gibsoris  turn, back the airport to the  department of transport coupled  wifcr the question why should  the municipalities have to pay  for airport maintenance, were  brought out at last week's  meeting of Sechelt municipal'  council.  Discussiori arose from a letter  sent by the Regional District  " office," covering its handling of  the request from municipalities  that the/Regional District tdke  over the airport. The Regional  District, maintained its stand  that it has no authority under  its letters patent to go into the  airport business and further, before it could put the matter  before the public in the form of  a referendum it would require  further information.  Sechelt aldermen were puzzled over the further informa-  tiori as they understood the Re-  - gipnal District had all the information available. It was suggested 7that/ Aid. Morgan  Thompron attend a Regional  District meeting and find out  /what further information was  required./ Aid;, ^Thompson/ said  th_it*thpugh municipalities were  not totally involved in the airport it was costing them'/$2,500 ���  7aririually. He wanted to know  why the municipalities, should  have'Ho' pay. 'At- the sariie time  Aid. Thompson was of ��� the opinion 7that turning the^;*drport back  ^tdp^h^dexwrtin^tYo- 'transport  would 7be a backwardY step.  Mayor Swain suggested a letter  be sent to enquire what further  information 7 was required. To  this council agreed.  A department of health letter  on the problem of increased  health inspector help in this  area -revealed that in next year's  estimates every consideration  would be given the appointment  of another inspector!  This problem has. been a sore  spot in tre area which has a-  roused Gibsons council and.the  Regional District board to stress  the immediate need for such  help. With only one inspector  for, septic tank installations' a-  vailable, the health department  suggested the building inspector of the Regional District be  utilized. The Regional district  countered offering use of their  building inspector on a timt-  cost basis. A promise of consideration in the next budget  is the latest move. In the meantime two part-time provincial  inspectors are trying to cope  with the situation.  Declaring that the purchase of  three lots was for maintenance  operations, Mayor Swain urged  that bids be sent out for the  clearing of the lots so a maintenance department building to  house equipment and supplies  could be constructed. Aid. Nelson and Rodway were appointed  to look over the lots and decide  on clearing specifications.  A proposal raised two years  ago and turned down by the  RCMP for the marking of crosswalk areas in the village was  raised again. Clerk Ted Rayner  maintained that it ��� would be  better to wait as there was a  provincial government survey  on traffic in the area now under  way. Over-parking in the post  office area started the discussion which led to the painting of  crosswalk lines at vital  locations.  Discussion on the numbering  of houses resulted in Clerk  Rayner being asked to find out  what process was used by Gibsons village when it decided to  have its homes numbered.

The Sunshine Coast Tourist association now centered mainly  on Powell River, district has decided to hold its annual meeting at  the Jolly Roger Inri, Sunday afternoon.  It is now centered on Powell River because of lack of interest  in this area by those who should have been the strongest in their  support of the organization.  The Tourist association mjamtains that every business on the  Sunshine Coast benefits from the dollars spent by tourists. In this  they are correct but, and here lies the crux of the situation ��� few  of those individuals directly concerned with the tourist business  were to the forefront in supporting the association in this area.  If there is anything that can be said about those catering to the  tourist industry in this part of the country it can- be described as  a lack of togetherness, even in their thinking where the tourist  industry is concerned. How this can be overcome and when it can  be done is the interesting factor to which consideration should be  given. Y "(���'."  As trie Tourist association.mentions in its bulletin it sent out  with the meeting notice, there are still a large number of businesses  on the Sunshine Coast, especially tourist services, who are not  members of this association and ride along free on the publicity  paid for by the conscientious members of our communities.  There should: be some form of answer to this!  wrong way!  The threat to man today. . . .is that he will cease to feel;  nerves arid emotions so blunted by the buffetting of a thousand  social'pressures.jytot:te.j^^o.]Utop and let himself bp swept away.  This is the gist of Wie sense/ arising from a remark iri a speech  made/by Hon. John Munro, minister of national health and welfare  to the Hamilton, Ont., Chamber of Commerce town meeting. A  good portion of this speech will be found on this page.  There are signs now evident thatvthe thousand social pressures  are not going to be quite the anaesthetic Hon. Mr. Munro expats.  White the policy of Mao in China was to use the young as a means  of purging his political system it does not appear that the young on  this continent will be in the same favored position as the young of  China.  However Hon. Mr. Munro's talk has a considerable amount  of merit in what he says. The world has become smaller by the  clock and is now regarded as a global Village, to use Marshall  McLuhan's description. But ��� when the emptiness of the protests  now flooding the world of youth are revealed ��� perhaps both sides  might be able to close the generation gap. Perhaps the words of an  old Bert Williams song fit the situation: "You're on the right road  sister, but you're going the wrong way."

Published by Macmil-  lan of Canada. Reviewed by  Jules A. Mainil, Gibsons Public Library.  The book is made up of some  of Pierre Elliott Trudeau's  writings published over the last  15 years. Because of this it  sometimes lacks cohesion,  nevertheless, testifies to the  author's unwavering {belief in  democracy, human dignity and  social justice.  Certain important themes repeat themselves throughout the  book. The/ first and probably  most important point made is  that Quebec, for its own cultural, economic and social good,  must at all costs, remain within  the Canadian Federation. This,  he believes, can best be done  by carefully amending the Constitution in such a way that  French Canadians, through  genuine, rather than illusory,  bilingualism, may feel at home  and have equal opportunityany-  where in Canada. He rejects  out of hand any special status  or particular privilege for Quebec. His respect for the Constitution and his faith in the  Canadian Federation are unequivocally stated in his powerful and lucid arguments against  separatism for Quebec.  *���       *    /���*���  7;"  The second point that comes  up again and again is his concern with economic and social  justice. The needs and She  rights of the man on the street,  the farmer, the laborer, seem  to constantly be on his mind.  The reactionary power structure of Duplessis' Quebec had  a powerful impact on the social conscience of this author.  There must be justice if democracy is to work or even to survive. ;  The. third major point is the,  importance   he   gives   to  fiscal  and budgetary responsiblity, be  it for.   governments,    corporations or individuals.    All    the  policies  that he advocates,  all,  the ideas that he presents must  pass  the  rigid test   of  reason-'  able   fiscal  possibility.  '*���..*���   *  Mr. Trudeau gives an impression   of independence  of  spirit  and of complete honesty. Truth,  as he sees  it,  seems basic to  the man. He is, at times, brutally frank. His criticisms of the;  French    Canadian    educational  system,   of   the   French   CanaY  dian  attitude   towards   govern- \  ment and democracy, are sear- =  ing, more, they are devastating.  It would,  however, be  a  mistake, to believe from this that  Mr.  Trudeau  is   not     a     true  French  Canadian  ���  the   point  is that he sees his people clearly,  qualities,  faults,  moles  and  all. His remarks about the English Canadians, their arrogance,  ignorance, and opportunism are  abrassive and would make anyone squirm.  *     *      ���  Small portions of this book  should not be read or quoted  out of context; it is too important and too serious a work for  that. One thing is certain, we  have a prime minister who can  write; more significant, we  have a prime minister who can  and is willing to think.  The reviewer, while having  reservations about some of the  views expressed, finds this quite  a book, not an hour's light reading by any means, but quite a  book.

Non-fiction  Federalism and the French  Canadians by Pierre Elliott  Trudeau.  Today's world has been described, by Marshall McLuhan  and others, as a Global Village,  very different from the insular  world in which we grew up.  But for the post-war generation the world has never been  other than a Global Village.  That there is a generation  gap of disturbing proportions is  not difficult to understand. On  one side there is the alienation  of a generation which, seeing  no sense in the present social  order and attitudes, wants them  changed; on the other, the  alienation of a generation which  sees the order and attitudes for  which it had acquired an expectation of permanence being  challenged. The question is  whether we are prepared to  bridge this gap today or if we  will let it grow until we are  faced with a Chicago-style con-  ���frontation   tomorrow.  'So said Hon. John Munro,,  federal minister of health and  welfare, when ��� speaking to the  Hamilton Chamber of Commerce Town Meeting earlier  this month. Continuing his  speech; Mr.  Munro said:  In  many  ways  the  situation  7 is almost ��� a counterpart of the  . early,  days   of .trade, unionism  when    the    old style industrial  baron   found   it   inconceivable  ��� that he'..' should be obliged to  sit down and seek an accommodation with his own workers. His reaction, that the workers' claims were preposterous/  Yihat their actions constituted anarchy arid that the troops  should be sent to put them  down, is finding; its echo in  many of the voices, heard today.,//.     ���'/.:'���:������-������ Y Yv..-.';..   -.  More than a decade ago the  noted American.' social philosopher Paul 7 Goodman, wrote  Growing Up Absurd, which was  to become a classic study of  youth in the society of that day.  He wrote:  "I often ask    young    people  'What do you want to work at,  if you have the chance?' . . .  v , "I remember talking, to half  -$&&. dozen yoiung .fellowfc i:at Van  -' Wagner's     Beach'   outside     of  Hamilton,   Ontario;   and  all   of  them* had this one thing to say:  'Nothing.'   They   didn't   believe  that what to work1' at was  the  kind of thing one wanted.  <:They rather expected that  two or three of them would  work for the electric company  in town, but they couldn't care  less. I turned away from the  conversation abruptly because  of the uncontrollable burning  tears in my eyes arid constriction in my chest. Not feeling  /sorry for them, but tears of  frank dismay for the waste of  lour humanity. And it is out of  'that incident that many years  later I am writing this book."  Y Goodman wrote about the dismaying resignation of the young  people of the '50s to, in his  words, growing up absurd; to  accept rather than to assert. Today's young people are no  longer willing to accept. They  are not prepared to grow up  absurd.  If we listen to the music of  the new generation ��� which  can be difficult at times, I  know, because it tends to be  very loud ��� the most startling  thing is that the songs aren't  about moon and June anymore.  They are about freedom, racial  equality, slums, social hypoc-  racy  ���  and man's   alienation  !ffom man. They bear names  like Give a damn for your fellow man, People Got to be Free  . and Society's Child.  The favorite slogan of the new  ' generation is Make Love, not  War; their favorite song, heard  in  Birmingham  and  Selma, in  ' the March on Washington, and  both inside and outside the convention hall in Chicago, We  shall Overcome; and the phrase  with which they put down one  of their own who they feel has  acted badly, Be Human.  The threat to man today is  not that he will become inhuman but that he will become  i ahuman. Not that he will feel  hate but that he will cease to  feel,   nerves   and  emotions   so  ! blunted by the buffetting of a  ��� thousand social pressures that  he will go limp and let himself  be swept away.  This is the challenge for peo  ple who care about people, the  challenge of change; the challenge of man's struggle to be  a man in the face of a great  wheel that wants to make of  him a cog; the challenge of  reconciling    those    who    came  with change and those who  came before it. This is the new  role of welfare, a human development role, meeting the  new needs of the whole man  and not just of the physical  man.  ichard   McKibbin  A  PERSONAL   INSURANCE   SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C.

Civilization, with its potential contamination, has  invaded even the wilderness area.  When traveling distances from approved public water supplies, it is wise to have a filled  Thermos or canteen. For an emergency use, two  drops of Tincture of Iodine in a pint of water,  left to stand for a half hour before drinking is,'  safe. Easier to use is a product we carry called  Halazone. One tablet purifies a pint of water.  Explorers use them.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine.

PRINCE  Dr. Prince is associate  professor of sociology at  Eastern Washington State  College, where he directs  the undergraduate social  work program. He is an experienced family and marriage counsellor and has  done extensive research into  family problems.  Next to death, divorce is the  most common cause of broken  families. Currently, there are  approximately 480,000 divorces  each year in the United States,  or, roughly'10 per 1,000 existing  marriages. /Divorces reached  their heightin /1946 when more  than 600,000 were granted, or a  rate of 18.2 per 1,000 marriages.  ^There are in the United States  at the ^present time approximately 2,8 million living divorced ipersons.  How many of these divorced  persons remarry? How successful are the remarriages?  What  effect does  divorce  have upon  Ythe children?  "���:"'It/is" often said that one-  fourth of all marriages contracted in the United States today end in divorce. This statement as: misleading. Both first  marriages arid remarriages  after divorce are included in  this one-to-four ratio. Studies  show, however, that remarriages after divorce have a  higher divorce rate than first  marriages.  A more likely estimate,  therefore, of the probability  that couples entering marriage  for the first ti___e��will some ,day  be divorced is closer to one  in six rather than one in four.  The earlier the marriage, the  higher the divorce rate. Also,  marriages in which the bride  is already pregnant have twice  the divorce rate of ordinary  marriages. A correlation also  exists';';<(betwee'n';7'/s^ip^Bcpnomic  status and divorce. The lower  the socio-economic status of the  partners, the higher the divorce  rate.  Divorce rates' also vary by  region of the country. They tend  to increase from east to west,  reflecting differences .in attitudes, values, and in the age,  ethnic; and religious composition\of the .popiiiation.  Most divorces occur within  the first few years of marriage.  After the; third iand fourth year,  divorce rates gradually decline,  hi book form  A new pamphlet tfliat describes shellfish found in the  Pacific Ocean waters of British Columbia and offers some  recipes for the preparation of  shellfish for eating, has been  published by the commercial  fisheries ��� branch of the department of recreation and conservation.  ' The 20-page booklet, intended  as a guide for those who are  unfamiliar with the province's  beaches, is titled Harvest Beneath The Sea. It is illustrated  with photographs of the various  clams, crabs, and oysters that  are found m British Columbia.  The text includes descriptive information, and notes that equipment needed might include a  tide book, lantern (in winter  months), forks, buckets, sack,  strong back.  A word of caution dealing  with the rare appearances of  the so-called red tide or paralytic shellfish poisoning is included in the pamphlet  Harvest Beneath The Sea was  edited by Mr. A. G. Karup, inspector of fisheries with the  commercial fisheries branch.  with the exception  of. a  slight  rise around the 20th year.  Although the divorce rate is  higher .for childless marriages  than for marriages with children, Ythe presence of children  in the home is no longer an  effective deterrent to divorce.  Both the proportion of divorces  involving children and the number of children affected by divorce /are on the increase.  Studies show; that divorce is  less traumatic for younger children and for children^ who did  not view the home as a happy  one prior to the divorce.  The damage to the child,  writes one family sociologist,  comes from perpetual conflict -  and bickering between the parents; and from his being used  as a pawn in their conflict. It  is this kind of home atmosphere,  he adds, that creates problems  for children and not the divorce  as such.  The most popular adjustment  to divorce is remarriage. Approximately 75 percent of divorced persons remarry within  five years. Divorced men have  greater probabilities of remarriage than do divorced women.  How successful are second or  subsequent marriages of divorced persons? Studies show that,  in general, remarriages of divorced persons are less stable  than other marriages. Where  either one or both of the partners remarrying have been divorced more than once, the divorce rate is four times as high  as in first marriages. If both  partners have been divorced at  least twice before, the probability, that the remarriage will end  in divorce is four in five.  Some divorced     persons     no  Coast News, Oct. 24, 1968..      3  doubt gain insight into their  own personalities by the experience and are able to recognize the part they played in the  breakup of their first marriage.  These individuals usually find  happiness in a new marital relationship.  The divorced person who  blames all the trouble on the  partner, however, without insight into his Or her part in the  marital failure, or who blames  himself exclusively for the divorce; is likely to repeat the  same mistakes in his second  marriage.  Remarriage is seldom an improvement, writes one family  specialist, when part of the  problem is still within the divorced person. More often than  not, professional help is needed  to prepare a divorced person  for success in his second marriage.'  .uiumnmuuuuimiuuiunniumnnimumiuimtUHiumnumuh.  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LEHERS  ��� MEDJCAL CERTfFICATB  ������ LEGAL DOCUMENTS  and other required papers  can be copied by photostat  Coast News  Ph. 886-2622        I  nmummnminnmMmminnmnuunnmminummiimiiniuP'  $250 for each $100. That's what you can get with  this year's Canada Sayings Bonds. Here's how.  The n<_w Bonds have fourteen regular annual interest  coupons which can be cashed each year as they come  due. The first pays 5.75%; the second, 6.50%; the  next three, 6.75 % each, and the last nine a big 7.00%  each. Total regular annual interest amounts to $95.50  on each $100 Bond.  If you choose you may hold all these regular annual  interest coupons uncashed until your Bond matures.  If you do, you will then get interest on your interest  totalling an additional $54.50 on each $100 Bond.  At maturity, therefore, you can get back total  interest of $150 plus your original $100 investment.  This way each $100 Canada Savings Bond becomes  worth $250. Other denominations can grow at the  same exciting rate.  Adults, children, businesses and institutions���-all  may buy Canada Savings Bonds. They are available in convenient amounts of $50 up to $50,000  for cash or on instalments, wherever you work,  bank or invest. And, as always, Canada Savings  Bonds are cashable any time at full face value plus  earned interest.  Few investments are so profitable. None builds  more surely for the future. Buy Canada Savings  Bonds and make your savings really grow.  CENT  Rexal  SALE  KRUSE DRUG STORES Ends Saturday  October 26  Gibsons  Sechelt 4       Coast News, Oct. 24, 1968.  MISC.

'        7 7  Debt and taxes are always  with us now. Very little happens  without the use of credit.

Howevier  most of the ranchers I know are  irritated by that sort of ^conversation.)  Mr. Olson's new legislation  was in three sections. Each  dealt with government assistance to farmers borrowing  money. Each provided for in-  creastd interest rates.  One section affected only;-a  few people. This was! the Fairan  Machinery syndic_iteis YiAct,  which provides money to a coin-V  paratively few farmers who pool  their efforts to buy equipment.  Under new?laws, some buildings  as well iasf equipment may be  financed ih'this way. Also there  is some broadening of the terms  of eligibility;  The Farm Credit Corporation  was a larger operation. This organization supplies loans directly to farmers, usually in fairly  large amounts, usually for the  purpose of acquiring-land. Since  1959, almost the entire $1,040,-  000,000 has Tbeen taken. Parliament had to vote new7 fund*.,  The legislation also unpegged  the fixed 5 percent interest rate  and permitted it to rise to a  level not yet fixed.

This would indicate a rate of  between six and seven percent  ��� better than the best .bank  interest but worse than the previous five percent.  The opposition criticized Mr.  Olson harshly for abandoning  the fixed five percent rate. After all, they pbintd out, although  interest rates are higher today,  during most of the past half century they have "been lower than  five percent and they may well  go lower again. What happens,  then, to the farmer caught with  7 percent loans in a period when  other people are getting loans  at 6 percent?  Mr. Olson's reply was that  unrealistically low interest rates  didn't help farmers as much as  might appear. For. one thing, he  said, it resulted in inflation of  land . values. What farniers  saved on interest rates could be  lost in higher land prices.  The third portion of the farm  credit legislation is the one affecting most farmers. This was  the   Farm   Improvement   Loan  ���Act:': 7--;"7": "       7  ; The government does not supply farm; improvement loans.  It guarantees them. Banks lend  the money. FEL loans have been  pegged at 5 percent. The deci-  ��� sion as to whether or not to  make loans is made not by the  government but by the banker.

So FIL funds will soon ibe  available again. The interest  rates won't be as high as ordinary rates. They shouldn't ibe.  Bankers take no risk renting  out this money. However they  also won't be at the comparatively comfortable 5 percent  level.  It will disappoint many ranchers and farmers who feel  (with some justification in my  view) that they are odd men  out of a world dominated by big  corporations and big unions.  On the other hand it will please  some of those men who've been  obliged in recent months to get  loans at open market rates for  the reason that there wasn't any  FIL money availaible to them.  Of course, there was once a  man who said "Neither a borrower or a lender ibe." But he  didn't live in 1968; He died of  the yaws in Buenos Aires in the  winter of '27 and was buried in  Potter's field.

The shower stall is so small the occupant has to operate like ia piston ��� don't ever drop the soap  or try to wash your feet. But  the tub does come in any of  five of the latest designer color.

PARCHMENT SNOBBERY  In 1228, the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II issued a  charter to the nuns of Goess  in Syria on a new writing material ��� paper. The secret of  its manufacture had been  brought, (by ithe Arabsj from  China and spread rapidly to all  parts of the mighty Arab empire, in Europe, first to Spain  and then, in the twelfth century  to Italy. Three years after his  first experiment with this new  substance, however, Frederick  II reconsidered, forbade the  further use of paper for public documents, and decreed that  henceforth they must be inscribed only on parchment. This  kind of snobbery still exists.  Even when tihe durability of  paper was no longer suspect,  parchment remained the proper  material for precious books, for  legal documents and valuable  records.

Dr Holm bought a  house in Sechelt and married ���  nurse from Victoria.

Is Canada a Monarchy or  a Republic or what?  A. Canada is ia Monarchy.  Q. Why is the Queen of England our Queen?  A. Our Queen is the Queen of  Canada ��� her full title (for  Canada) being Elizabeth the  Second, by the Grace of God of  the United Kingdom, Canada  and her other realms "and territories Queen, head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the  Faith.  The phrase Queen of England  doesn't mean much, if anything  ��� since the Kingdom of England ceased to exist in 1707,  when it was united with the  Kingdom of Scotland and they  became known as the United  Kingdom of Great Britain ���  under Anne. Earlier (in 1603)  Anne's great grandfather James  (as James 1st of England and  James 6th of Scotland) had  reigned as King of both countries but they were riot united,  having separate parliaments.  The present Monarch is, of  course, also Queen of Australia,  Queen of New Zealand, etc.  Q. Has Canada got a constitution like the United States?  A. Somewhat similar.

How can Canada amend  the British North America Act?  A. This statute is simply ah  act of the British parliament ���  like any other act, and we cannot alter it. However, the British government is perfectly willing (and always has been) to  amend it in accordance with  Canadian wishes as they have  done many times. Indeed the  British government shows all  signs of being anxious to cooperate in bringing the constitution home to Canada or make  any of the long overdue amendments Canada needs if the federal government and all the  provinces can ever agree (as  they must). The big stumblirig  blolck to ia rehabilitation of our  constitution tp date is the inability of the federal government arid the ten provinces to  agree on just what amendments  are necessary.  A number of thorny questions  must be settled. Is the federal  goyenment jtq <haye more ;or less  powers? If less ��� is Quebec  to have greater provincial independence and power over  local affairs?

It's a lovely beach.  The thing I liked' most was  to see so many different things.  I didn't know the names of all  the trees. I just guessed what  kinds of trees they were, I do  know a fir tree and a cedar  tree. I saw a lovely rock that  looked like sand but wasn't. I  used' up one roll of film at the  beach. I took >a picture when  Jacob was looking the other  way. I called him and when  he looked I snapped it.  I wish I could swim dn the  water when it is -summer time.  But we don't have a lovely  beach like that iat home. But  I wish we had one like that.  I think it would be warm. There  was. a lovely hill there too. The  hill reminds me of home because we have a hill like that  too.  I can't wait until the wind  comes up so we will go down  there again. But I hope it's going to be soon so I can take  more pictures. ��� Calvin Harry,  Sechelt Elementary School.  UIC problems  Q.   A friend of fine cuts pulp  all winter  and  draws .benefits  and then sell his pulp in the  summer. Can I build a couple  of fishing boats next winter and  draw my^bene-'its andi then sell  the boats in the summer?  A.   The limited inforaiation you  have given is insufficient to say  whether you would be entitled  to  benefit. -If  you  are .unemployed and wish to mage a claim  I wouldadvise #ou\~tQ communicate  with  your  closest unemployment Jnsurjance ; office. Many  more entails regarding the extent of your participation in this  enterprise would be inquired ,be-  fqre it could be decided whether'  you are ^entitled/ to benefit.  Q.   When I leave my jojbi, can I  claim unemployment insurance  benefits for the few months that  I am unable to work, as I intend  returning to work three months  after   the  baby  is  born?   The  reason I ask , this is that I do  rieed  the  money badly,  but  I  want to ibe honest about it.  A.   If you leave your employment because ,pf .Pregnancy you  are riot considered to be available ;for work and consequently  you are not entitled to benefit.

In medical usage,  says The Canadian Medical Association, it means a violent  shaking of the brain resulting  from a head injury in which  there is no fracture of the skull.  The head injury producing this  condition need not be severe,  and no structural brain damage  is recognized alter recovery.  Industrial accidents, automobile accidents and sports injuries are among the most common causes of concussion. The  victim is usually dazed or unconscious for a few seconds, but  certain mental functions may  ,be impaired for a period lasting up to several hours. During this time: he niay" carry out  complicated activities of which  he afterwards remembers nothing. The duration of this period  of post-traumatic amnesia is of  value in determining the seri  ousness of the head injury.  The patient who recovers  from concussion is also usually  unable to recall the actual moment of injury. His memory  may be blank concerning the  several seconds ��� or even minutes ��� preceding the injury.  This is called retrograde amnesia. '���:'���������  As the patient recovers consciousness, his pulse and  breathing become stronger, he  often vomits; is confused, restless and irritable, and almost  always complains of headache.  The CM.A. says that these  symptoms, with the possible exception of headache, usually disappear within 48 hours, leaving  the patient with a gap in his  memory but no other recognizable evidence of hraifr damage.  However, he may. feel\ a little  weak for several days.  Anyone who loses consciousness should be seen by a physician as soon as possible.  CROSSWORD   ->   ���   ���:   By A. C.

ISABEL  DAWSON  Like the rest of Canada, British Columbia's government falls.  under three main categories,  federal, provincial and local.  The provincial government consists of the legislature, the executive and the judiciary, while  local government takes several  forms.  Federal jurisdiction covers  all matters of national concern  such as defence, postal services  and banking, consisting of 29  fields in all. Provincial jurisdiction covers 16 specific areas,  such as education, civil and  property rights and direct taxa:  tion within the province.  The people of British Columbia are represented in the federal government by 23 members  and six senators, and in the  provincial government by 55  members.Y;' ���:''--. :-'v  The cabinet is composed of  the lieutenant������-..��� governor, the  prime minister and cabinet  ministers who usually head government departments. Departments of the provincial government include, finance; health  services and hospital insurance:  labor; lands, forests and water  resources; agriculture; mines  and petroleum resources; commercial transport; highways;  education; industrial development; trade and commerce;  municipal affairs; social welfare; public works; recreation  and conservation; travel industry;  provincial secretary.  The provincial judicial system is composed of the court  of appeal, the supreme court,  county courts and various  minor courts, including magistrates' courts and small debts  courts.  Legislation concerning- crimin-  al law is under the jurisdiction  of the federal government, and  municipal or civic attilidrities  are empowered by the provincial government to pass by-laws  which apply to their particular  municipality.  Types of local or municipal  government fall under various  categories. An improvement' district is the simplest form and  usually provides a' single service, such as fire protection or  a water supply. Villages' preferably have a population of  between 500v and 2,500 and are  able to' pass by-laws.  Towns, which usually have a  population of between 2,500 and  5,000, have the further responsibility of social welfare. Cities  have greater powers and re-  sponsibilites, including police  protection. Municipal districts  have powers similar to those  of cities.  Region*., districts, a new  form of local government, are  designed to enable a group of  local governments to provide  common services on a shared  basis.  Revenue for municipal services is derived mainly from  real-property taxation, although  additional revenue is derived  from licence fees, business taxes, fines, public utility projects  and -grants-in-aid from the provincial government. 8 ;    Coast News, Oct. 24, 1968.

In this  way, there will be a great saving of interest payment arid the  property will be completely paid  for by  the time the units are  opened.   The   opening  date   officially will  be  set within  the  next few days and. all Sunshine  Coasters and their friends will  be invited.  Lady directors of the society  have over $600 on hand for the  funishings of the homes and  work has been already started,  on drapes and other essentials  for the comfort of the guests.  The Sunshine Coast should be  proud  of  this  new  community  asset and all those who have  inspected the buildings lately  have been agreeably surprised  at the care which has beer-  taken in the whole enterprise.  One noticeable factor has been  that despite all the rain there,  has been no sign of mud around  the buildings. The B.C. Hydro  lighting is another fine recent  development. Something new  can be seen every few days and  certainly there is a general feeling of satisfaction and community pleasure about the total project.  The senior citizens who came  from Mission to see. the buildings went away with a desire  to do the same thing in their  own area. They were most  favorably impressed especially  with the fact that the land was  so dry, it was so level and adjacent to beach, stores, hospitals, churches and park.
